Naturally mail grossly exaggcratis! rumors were soon atloat, and the most ale siinl statements were maje as facts by per sons who hae not the welfare ot Spring-: Lielil at heart. No accurate information couhl lie obtained by the general pub lic last niirht anil tin crowds on the MtccLs were coniielleil to disperse to their hollies without thecovetel infoi na tion. In order to allay any anxiety which may have been engendered in the minds of the business men of the city, the liKi'i'lil.ir presents a calm and dispassionate statement of the facLs concerning the embarrassment of the great corratiou. These facts show that the difficulty is not .so serious as to cause any trouble in the financial circles of Springfield. Financially this city is perfectly sound : the bank are thoroughly able to care fur their interests anil the interests of their pjtions; no danger is apprehended and there will be none. Such is the sentiment of the strongest and most reliable business men in Springfield. The bare fact is that the firm of While Icy. Fassler A Kelley, owing to recent fi nancial ditlicultiesoljither'iarlies, has ln forced teiuiorarily into the hands of a receiver to protect its prnjierty and Its creditors. The business at F..ist stieet will go light alone as if nothing had happened, and all ot Its various departments will remain unchangeiL The linn was compelled to take this step by the action of the. Champion liar and Knife company, that company having a claim against Whiteley. KassIeyA- Kelly for an aggregate of about St'O.oou. The Itar and Knife company, at a late hour Thursday afternoon li'ed a ietition in the court of common p'eas asking that a receiver be appointed for Whitele). Fassler A Kelly. This is the o il uit pending against the corxiration, a id Mr. William N. Whiteley said to I'k-Pi-ni.H representatives last night, at a late hour, that this one could scarcelj lie called a suit. .Judge White granted the petition of the llirand Knife compaii) and about ti o'clock last evening .Mr. Win. N. Whiteley wa a ipointed as rcie'ner for Whiteley. Fussier A Kelly. At 10 o'clock last night the local mem bers of the gi eat linn and (heir lawjers, the Messrs. Bowman, held a long confer ence in the directors' parlor at the Fast street offices. Messrs. William N. and Ann. Whiteley and W. T. Stilwell were present. The conference lasted alsiut half an hour, and at the expiration ot that lime Uece'ner Whiteley appeared in the general orliee, where representatives of the Kepi line and local 'la-ier.-. were wailing to see him. Ml. Whiteley was cheeiful and affable, bat he was a trille pale, probably from overwork and anxiety. He was perfectly willing to talk to the press representatives abrtut the linn's dilliulty and answered all questions readily, lie made in writing the tnllowiut; statement, which had been nii thori?ed by the firm: AlllMirlrsl stttleltlriit. Mr. William N. Whiteley was today a pointtsl as receiver in the court of common pleas for Whiteley, Fassler A Kelly, and that company has sent the following tel egram to all lLs creditors : "rnexpected losses have teinorarIIy forced us into the hands of William S.

Kxcepting a little weariness alioiit the eyes and a slightly moderated glow of color in the face, theie was nothing in Mr. Whiteley's apjiearance to indicate the intense strain iimlei which he must lie laNirinir. His manner was calmness and self-possession itself, lie made the following statement, which is given verbatim, just as Mr. White ley dictateil it: "The causes of the mie'vtnl losses we mention in our ollicial circular, lie with parties to whom we had given our p.ijxT in a business transaction originally, and which had lietn extended along ami swollen unite largely for their lienelit only: and when they failed to protect us. we determ ined that It was best nut to pay it. which caused our creditors to take the present ac tion for their protection. There was also the further fact that for a few days past, the banks have been experiencing uneasi ness from the recent bank troubles and, as elsewhere, were desirous of doing a con tracted business. l.'ather than make any serious sacrifices, it was thought best to suspend payment tor the present." "Was this trouble precipitated by the failure of the Fidelity bank at Cincinnati, Mr. Whiteley?" "It is hard to say. I tVnk I hail better answer that question by saying.that 1 can not say that I have not sufficient know ledge to say that that was the cause of the contraction.'' "Mr. Whiteley. It Is Understood that the lirui was a heavy depositor .with the burst Fidelity bajik at Cincinnati Are you will ing to state whether or not this is so, and w hether and how much the firm will lose b the failure of that bank ? "1 do not see that that has an thing to do with-the case," returned Mr. Whiteley. "1 can put in a remark,'' he continued, "that on gentlemen, as residents of Spring field, well understand. The vast amount of business done in Sp'ingfield and the small amount of banking capital has at times made the situation quite a difficult one to solve. As a consequence of tills lack of balance, if there is any interrup tion in the country, business concerns here have but little opjiortiiiiity Tor home assist ance to funds if any unexiieeted call is made uMin them. Our trouble is a strong instance of this." "This Is a very brief thing. It is, in fact, only a day or two old. and the appli cation lor a receiver was made simply tn protect the pnqierty so that all of the cred itors might Ik- paid. This corporation has not lieen subject to any suits. There are now no suits endiug against it. ae this one. and it may scarcely called a suit. The coriMiratlon is not In trouble on account of the pressing demands of Its creditors. It is onl that this one creditor conies lorward at this juncture and estops pament."

At .1:.".0 o'clock yesterday (Thursday) afternoon, llowman A Bowman, and ,1, Warren Keifer. atlomeis for the Champion liar and Knife company tiled in the court of common pleas the following jieti- tiou and application, which tells a better and more coherent story of the failure than an) thing else has done: The Champion Itar .11 Knife Co..

The defendant Is indebted to the plain tilf on an account now due and pa.vahle, f r cutter bars, knives and material sold and delivered by plaintiff to de fendant in the sum of Si,(i"ti.T4. and also on the defendants promissory notes, given b it to the plaintiff for cutter bars, knives and material sold and deliv ered by the plaintitl to the defendant in the sum ot K:t,'.HKS.l'il. That the defendant has a large plant sit uate in said city consisting of real estate, factories, machinery, tools and Implements, at which is now empl0ed a cry large number of workmen, engaged in completing unfinished mowers. reapers and binding machines for the har vest of the present season and that it has already manufactured about i.1,0UU mow ing, reaping and binding machines, which have been by it shipied to various oints of the United I.tates, otne of which are sold but have not lieen settled for; some of which have lieen sold iimiii the condition that they oper ate satisfactorily during the harvest of the present season, and some ot which aie in the hands of agents throughout various parts ot the 1'nited States, and aie being ollercd tor sale to the farmers for use during the harvest of the present season, and the said defendant has in its employ a large number ol agents in various paits ot the 1'liited Slates engaged In consummating said sales, which said agents w ill in the due course of defendant's business, it uninterrupted, eonsunimateaiid complete the sale of substantially all ot said machines and obtain payment theie foi. The defendant has. by the making and delivery of accommodation notes tor par ties who have recently become insolvent. Incurred large liabilities in addition to the heavv obligations it is compelled to Incur in the management of its proper business, which said accommodation paper is daily iiiatuiing ami the holders theteof are threat ening to enforce the collection of the same by seizing the defendant's prupeity and as-ets, and subjecting them to the paj inent of said accommodation promissory notes. The defendant has in the last ten days Im en cuiii'lled to apply of its assets in order to carry on Its business and meet its matur ing obligations, large sums of money, a iiuting to over M.".0.mxi. whereby its means and resources have become so ex hausted that it is not able to continue to carry on this business, either by completing its unfinished machines, or by continuing its agents in those parts of the I'niteil States where its machines liefore mentioned have been conditionally sold and are in the pro cess of sale so as to consummate the said sales and secure settlements for the same and the payment of the purchase money thereof - that the harvest in those parts of the l'lilted States, where the defendant has Ik-en engaged in the carrying on of this busi ness will tie over in the next thirty days, and unless its uncompleted machines are ismiptctcd ami put on the market within that lime and I is enabled to continue its agents in the field to consummate its conditional sales and disMis. ot the machines already ship lied and unsold, ver large losses will be incurred and a very large amount of its product for the present season, which amounts to about .',0inMHU, tie unsold and and unsettled for. and become, compare-, tivelv valulcss to defendants and its cred itor.. The defendant's commercial paier has reeentl gone to protest, its credit has be come so Impaired that it is unable to raise anv further stilus of mouev to earn on its ous., audit is in imminent danger of be- cumuli; insolvent. The defendant's good will is very valua ble, and the value thereof and of its other proerty is dependent upon the continu ance of its business throughout the pres ent harvest in all those parts of the I'niteil States in which it is engaged in selling its machinery, which said part of the I'niteil States comprises alsuit one-third of the states and territories thereof, and in those parts ot the United Suites where it Is engaged in selllne sa'd - machinery, it has in nearly every county thereof in which wheat and grass are grown a local agent, and liesides a very large number ol traveling men who are en gaged in assisting said local agents in selling said machines, and the said defendant is wholly without the means, and is unable to obtain the money to pay the exienses of and con tinue the said agents and carry on its said business throughout the I'nitisl States, and that unless the same is done through a re ceiver, during the next ninety days, the said organization of the defendant to v-ll its said product will become disorganized, tlie value of the said product greatly le duced and the said detendant wholly In solvent The plaintiff, suing on behalf of itself and all the other creditors of the said de fendant, says that unless a receiver lie forthwith appointed and placed in posses sion and control of the said factories and business, with authority to borrow money sufficient to finish the machines in process of completion in said factories, and suffi cient to maintain its present agencies in the field, its product aforesaid will be un sold, lieconie scattered anil very greatly impaired and diminished in value to the defendant and its creditors. The indebtedness of the defendant is maturing in large sums daily. and the creditors, as their paper become due, will take measures to collect the same by seizures of its properly scattered over the United States, and unless a receiver be forthwith apiointed to take charge of such product and continue the disiositioii of said machines during the present harvest an en ormous exieiise will lie incurred and a vast nuuilierof suits instituted throughout thc I'nited States, which will prevent the con tinuance or said business and cause an im mense loss tn the defendant and the credit ors thereof. The plaintilf further says that the de fendant's factories, machinco, tools and Implements with which it is engaged in carrying on said business, are of immense value in connection with said business, and have cost large sums of mone, and in said factories a large number of inenareein- phived, and for a long time have been spc-i .tally .skilled in the manufacture of said product. and unless a receiver be forthwith aplHiinted for the defendant its said factories will have to close immediately and the business of finishing the large uumlier of nearly completed machines be susenilcd. and the organization of the de fendant scatteied and disconnected from its said factories, (which, vvitli their machine ry and tools, are adapted sHVially to the defendant's business), whereby the same, with the machiner and tools therein. will become greatly reduced in value to the creditors of the defendant. WhiMCfore the plaintiff prays that a re ceiver tor the iteteiiilant lie aiqioliited with power to take iossessioii of its factor ies and personal pnqierty wherever the same lie situated, including all its choses In action and other property of every na. ture whatsoever, and to run and to operate the defendant's factories so far as may be ueeessary to finish its uncompleted ma chines tor the present harvest, and until the further onler of the court and to continue the agencies and b.tsiness of the defendant through out those states in which it is engaged in selling machines, so far as it may be neces sar to consummate its conditional sales and disjiose of its product during the pres ent harvest and until the further order of the court, and that said receiver be author iyed by the court to Imrrow such sums ot money from time to time as may be nee es s iiy for the purposes aforesaid and to issue his obligations therefor, and that the said receiver be authorized to distrib ute tlie money which may come into his bauds under the direction of the court amongst the creditors of the 'X-fenpant: that the defendant's indebted lie" he ascei tallied and that such of its eal estate may Ih decreed t" lie sold as In iy be found neeessiry that the i!e temlant Im- ordered to ronvc all its property, real and personal, inclniling Its choscs in action, wherever the saiee ! situated or located, or whether the same hi within this or in other states, to the receiver to be apMiinted in tlos ac tion: and the plainlilT prajs for such other and further lehef as eiiiit) ami the natuie of the ease may require. 11 linvvM v A How vi and .1.

It is learned at the navy department that most of the Hags captured were turned over to the naval academy, and are now on ex hibition there, together with Hags captured in other wars. The confederate naval flags captured were few, and an accidental fire in the old navy department building several years ago destroyed some of them. Wife Miirtl-rer HniiEctt. Sr. Iairis. June at.

Opinions of Buniness Mcn-Ojiiet ltrigns Throughout the City. the llvuks Fortify Theuisilu--, but no "Kunx" are .Hade Eagerness furXewa- The Kepnhlic'a riieuonienul Sale. Since the publication of the earlv fore noon edition of the III l-l in K there has been but little change in the situation of the affairs of Whiteley, Kassler .x- Kelly. The city Is quiet at this hour -:J p. in. and excitement has reachi-d a minimum. The failure of the firm continues to be the one absorbing topic of street talk, and has taken the place of all other li-al news. The public received just enough of an Intimation of the trouble last night to make il voracious for further news this morning, and the city was astir at a very early hour. TheSrKiSttit-iKi.n D.mi.v ItKrrm.u was on the streets at U::to this mnniing with an "Kxtra." containing a dispassionate, com prehensive and minutely correct account ot the trouble, and the sale of this edition was simply enormous something un paral lel led in the annals of local journalism. Within the space of ninety minutes, nearl .".ODD of the extras were sold by newsboys on tlie streets. and even then the demand could not lie supplied. The ISkim iimc is a little proud of that account, and has lieen com plimented on all sides for Its veracious tenor and reassuring sentiment. From no body has higher praise been received than from the Champion ssiple themselves. The Kki'I lii.n hail two motives in the publication of the early morning sheet One was in the lineof its immovable ilicy of giving the news at the earliest possible moment: the other was a desire to supercede the garbled and sensational reports that were every moment growing in currency, by an autlmritive and reliable statement of fact. fhere was a-tense, eager feeling all over the city this morning, but it was one ot interest rather than excitement The situ ation, unfortunately, was of a nature to create a hurry or a panic, had the Spring field public lieen ilis-ed to be hasty or act prematurely. Hut to Its eternal credit, lie it said, it did neither. The much-dreaded run on the banks did not iHx-nr. The Second National, where the Champion jieople do their banking busi ness, opened about an hour and a half ear lier than common. A tew small dejiositors came early in the morning ami drew out their money, hut there was nothing which the bank would have felt, even under ordi nary conditions, and today it was extraordinarily provided. The large dejiositors those who have from Sl.Oou to S-'O.iHH) in the lunb -manifested not the slightest concern. The hank stands as high in general credit tonight as It did yesterday. There was some apprehension about the savings bank, ami this morning a little more mone was paid out to small deposi tors than usual iierhaps $4.0tK hut nothing even remotely in the nature of a "run'' occurred. The smaller the desi tor the more he was rliimed. This after noon the bank is serene as a pond. The other city hanks could not have told, from their day's transactions, that anything of an unusual nature had taken place. fieneral Asa S. llushnell. who is a man of prudence and judgment under all condi tions, said to a IlKi-t'iii.u reporter this morning: "There Is positively no cause or occasion for alarm, if people will simply keep cool. There is nothing in this Chaui p'on matter to excite apprehension. It is simply a financiering detail for which they have given ample reasons." shrewd citien who has made a thor ough study of the situation, and who is ex cellently qualified to know what he is talking atmut, said to a ieorter this morn ing : "I have heard that Whiteley had once been assisted by Harper, and that he had since helMsl Harper out of a box in lsSl, by means of accommodation paier. So far as I can learn this accommodation per of 1844, had never lieen cleaned up between them, but that on the contrary, the residue had been enlarged until it had grown into a very considerable sum. I know that Whiteley was not in Harper's Chicago wheat deal, and that he knew nothing of Harper's being in it until he read of it in the Cincinnati papers. "Well, the trouble came about this same old accommodation paper of lhS4. Seeing that a crash In his financial affairs was im minent, Harjier, without Whiteley's know 11 ledge or consent, renewed and raised money on this paper, which was simply as gissl as gold in the financial markets. He disposed of it to a lot of Hebrew brokers at Cin cinnati -Soodsee! and others without Whiteley's knowledge. This precipitated tlie trouble. The linn hail money for its legitimate and regular claims, chief among which was that of the Itar and Knife com pany, but the claims of the ( inciniiatl brokers matured first, and to protect the firm from this somewhat Irregular and en tirely unexiectel source of embarrassment the firm went iuto the hands of a receiver. That Is the whole history. Whiteley's dealings were with K. I.. Harper A Co. not with the Fidelity bank."
