New Yobk, July 6 President Cleve land's response to the invitation to attend the Gett j sburg reunion, which did not reach the office of the secretary until after his de parture for Gettysburg, is as follows: General Iloratlo Kins:, Recording Secretary: Mr Dear Sin: I have carefully consid ered the question of acceptlns the Imitation of the society of the Army of the Potomac to attend its annual reunion, to be held at Gettysburg tho first, second and third days of July. I need hardly to assure ou that I should bo glad to be present on this very interesting occasion. In view, however, of my confining duties here, and all the cir cumstances surrounding the subject, I have arrived at the conclusion that I ought not to leave here at the time designated. The meeting orthe sun I ors of Gett y sburg upon the held where they fought twenty-hve years ago can not fall to teach an Impres sive lesson and convince all our people that bravery is akin to magnanimity, whllo 11 n minds them that that the object of war Is the attainment of peace.

Tho "Mnsicale club," which has grown In to quite an extensive organization, was very effectively entertained last evening by Miss Josephine Hill, at her residence on Ward street. The entertainment was the most formal and elaborate since the club came into existence, and Miss Hill can congratu late herself upon having created a new era in its career. A pre-arranged programme of great merit was rendered. Miss Fannie Sterrit and Mr. David Stertitt sang a duet nrellil v. and Miss Alice Bennett's bright and cultured voice was heard to goodadan- tage In a becoming mho, with air. l.ute Frankenburg as accompanist a position he successfully filled for ail the sollsts dur ing the evening. Miss Irene Spangler and Miss Kate Kauffman played a brilliant duet ,-ith o.h nri pfTprt. Mr. David Sterritt sung "Among the Koses" In excellent bari tone. One or tne pronounceu successes oi the evenlne was a piano duet by Mr. Bertie Skinner and Miss Louie Shaw, which was handsomely executed ana rounaiy ap plauded. The next feature was the appearance of Miss Iza Gale In recitation a part of the Droeramme alwais received with deligut. There seems to be no limit to Miss Gale's versatility as a reader, and last evening witnessed one of her most effective moods. She recited "The Man with the Cold," and In reponse to an imperauve encore, ren dered. "Entertaining her Sister's Beau," both of which were received with choking laughter by the audience. Refreshments were servea at wis junc ture, tho entire narty sitting down to a daintlly-lald table, bright with china and silver, and fragrant with great designs of cut-flowers. Ices, fruit and cakes were served, to the evident gratification of the guests. The second part oi tne programme was thoroughly In kind with the first. Miss Spangler played a Weber sonata and sev eral other numbers. Miss Pearl Cllne re cited "Flash, the Firehorse" with vivid dramatic effect and Mr. Frank I'rothero and Mr. Will Tutnameach sang admirable solos, both receiving encores. Miss Gale recited "The J'lners" wlth'rich powers of mimicry and the programme was ended with a plane solo by Mr. E. A. Morgan. The evening was a pronounced success both in a social and artistic war. It is likely that the next meeting, a fortnight hence, will contain a still futher element of novelty, and on the next succeeding that the joung men will try Uieir hand at enter taining. The club's muslcales are proving both nleasant and profitable, as they furnish entertainment of a beneficial order, inspire confidence In young musicians and form a basis for pleasant social relations. MITCHELL POST, C. A. R., Met In Regular Session Lost Kvening Gen eral Orders Received. Mitchell post met in regular session last (Thursday) evening with all officers pres ent and a good attendance.

Tho Effect of Free Trade as Seen from a llaslness Standpoint. Every laboring man should read and carefully ponder over statements made in the following. In fact every wofkingman should cut it out and paste It In his hat and read It over and over as opportunity pre sents. The extract Is from the New York Suit, a democratic paper, therefore it can not be charged that it Is all republican bun combe: "There Is labor In every pound of Iron, every yard of cloth, every gallon of wine Imported into this country. This foreign labor displaces just so mucn American labor. If less wages are paid to this for eign labor than American laborers receive. the constant tendency or tne importations Is to reduce wages here to the European standard. Whenever in our folly we have tried free trade or an approacn to free trade, our laborers have lost their high wages, and then their employment at any wages whatever. Our manufacturers. undersold by cheaper foreign produc tion, were forced to close tneir fur naces, mills and factories, and our workmen and nronrletors exhibit ed to the naUons of the earth the spectacle of a people claiming to be great, sitting In Idleness and poverty, waiting ior iub growth of sufficient political reason to save a nation's Industry from utter ruin by res toration of protective duties on foreign importations. The right to protect your labor Is as sacred as the right to protect your lives. And the duty to do so is just as obligatory. Your title to your own coun trry's market is supreme. No foreign com petitor has any right whatever In It. Shut him out 1 Don't forget that this competitor Is in every piece of cloth, every ton of rails, every crate of crockery, every ton of eopper, every oundie of carpets mat comes from abroad through our custom bouses." SprinsUeld Won. The broom drill last night between the Springfield team, under Captain Rndd, and the Urbana team, under Captain Williams, was a pretty contest and was decided in favor of the Springfield team. Both teams did good work and are evenly matched. Each squad has won a drill, and will probably try another contest to decide.

The nominating committee of the Board of Trade held another meeting vesterdsy afternoon and completed their work. The office of secretary has been left vacant for reasons stated in their report published be low. The ticket so far as made out is an excellent one, and will undoubtedly receive the endorsement of the members. A meeting of the Board will be called r Wednesday evening, July 13th, at which time the committee will make their report. The following Is the report agreed upon; To the Board of Trade, Springfield, Ohio. We, tho undersigned, members of the committee elected to appoint persons as officers of the board, unanimously report as follows: For president, John Foos; for first vice-president, Joseph B. Cartmeil; for second vice-president, F. M. Hagan; for treasurer, Samuel F. McGrew. Board or directors A. S. Bushnell, Amos Whitelcy, I). P. Jefferics, John II. Thomas, Robt H. Foos, T. W. Ludlow. Fuller Trump. J. W. Murphy, Conrad Nagle and Oscar T. Mar tin. We have made no nomination for secre tary and refer this nomination back to the board, tor the reason that this committee has no power to fix the compensation or designate the services that will be required of this office, and we recommend that the constitution of the board be so changed as to give the board of directors power to elect a secretary and designate the sen ices that will bn required of him, and fix the amount of his salary.

The following Is from tho Boston i'ilot. John Boyle O'Riley's paper, and Is respect fully commended to the readers of the Kb- runuc: "Levi P. Morton, ex-congressman and minister to France. Is a native of Vermont. aged 01. He was. the sou of a poor coun try minister, and has made his large for tune in the dry goods and DanKing lines. He entered political lire only ten years ago, being elected to congress from New York. President Garfield appointed him minister to Trance In 18S0. and he filled mat post Hon until the Inauguration of President Cleveland. The following Incident shows that Mr, Morton knows how to dispense his well-earned money In large and noble rharltv: "When the government put at the disposal of the charitable, as a means of conveying food to the starving Irish, the frigate Con stellation, Mr. Morton wrote to the New York Ucratd, offering to supply a quarter of the cargo, and asking that his name be reserved. His generous offer, which was made at an expense of many thousands of dollars, fired the hearts of the mercanUle community, and In a single day the tntire cargo of the Constellation was pledged. It was only recently, through the Indiscretion of a friend, that Mr. Morton became known as the chief benefactor. This Is but one of hundreds of broad acts of philan thropy on his part, most of which will never be known, as Mr. Morton does not speak of them.? A bAO FOURTH.

About one o'clock this morning, the attention of Officer Xicklas and Private Watchman Caldwell was attracted by a dense, pitchy smoke which filled Main and Market streets, near their Intersection, and was blown about in little clouds, till the whole neighborhood was filled with the pungent and rather menacing odor. It seemed likely that a frame building on the east side of Market street, about the livery stable and Fountain garden, was onflre, as tho smoke and smell seemed to come from that direction. Officer Nlcklas went to the door of Sam Goon's Chinese laundry and rapped vigorously. There was muttered Chinese heard Inside and, encouraged, Nlcklass In quired in a loud key: "Hey, anything on fire back there?" "Huh?" "Got anything burning back there?" "Cookee water," was the answer. They were "cooking" water heating it for the wash and burning pine in the stove. "Ail right, so it is only 'cookee water 1 smell," said Nlcklas.

The Personal Ideas of the Tax Commis sioners Upon School and Oity Fi nancesThe Meeting in Detail. The Meeting of the Eighth Congressional Committee The Hoard of Trade Nom. Inatlng Committee Other Import ant Muntclpal Matters. Tho tax commission held an important meeting last (Thursday) evening, in which a vast amount of j-rofitable and Important discussion bearing directly upon the sub ject of the public finances was carried on. No marked action'wts taken, but the levy will probably be definitely fixed at a final meeting of the board next Monday evening. There was a full attendance last night. ovcry member being present The com mission was in session until half past ten, and the time was consumed in a comparison of estimates made by each member of the commission as to the levies that shloud be allowed to council and school board to run the city with. Both will be materially re duced. The presentation of individual Ideas upon the levies being called for. Solicitor Sum mers and Major Kelly were found to ex actly coincide in their estimates, which aggregate -i and C-10 mills, as follows: lnj for city purposes, 5J for school pur jwsts and 7, of course, as fixed by law, for date and county tax. Sir. Martin's esti mate was 9" for city, 5K for school and 7 for county and state, making an aggregate of even 22 mills. Mr. Frey presented an estimate of 21 mills, of which 5 are for school purposes and 9 for the city. Mr. Thomas, who is the boss cutter of the com mission reported an aggregate of .020 a whole mill below that of Major Kelly and Solicitor Summers. These estimates are only tentative and no finality can be reached until next Monday evening. All the estimates it will be ob served are away below the levies asked by council and school board, which, with tho unalterable state and county tax aggregated 24 8-10 mills. It is the open sentiment of the commission that profligacy and carelessness have been exercised by both bodies. It was unanimously resolved by the com mission to make no allowances whatever for any of the three following council funds: Right of way: sewers, drains and ditches, and cemeteries and parks. The commission thought that no call would be made upon these funds during the coming vear. These three funds aggregated a-iu of a mill and their elimination will cause a wide and grateful gap. Mr. Martin and Mr. Frey, the committee appointed at the last meeting to act upon Mr. Thomas's resolution of accusation, made no report, but will do so at the next meeting. The paper proposes that here after should the council or school board proceed to go beyond the limit of expendi tures hxed by the commission that the latter should refuse to meet deficiencies thus created. These deficiencies, it Is claimed, are mainly due to the extravagancies In dulged in in the payment of com mon laborers at a greater rate than business men pay for similar service. That at this point of business depression it would result In general busi ness disaster to increase the levy 25 per cent as is asked. Further that it Is the direct duty of the commission to protect our citi zens against any Buch increase, and that now is the time to Insist upon a reformation In all departments or the city government, that neither the prosperity nor welfare of the city depends upon such increase, but on the contrary, should it be granted tha result would tend to shut out furtiier capi tal from the city, discourage enterprise and destroy confidence In the faithfulness of city officials. Some intelligent and thougntiui discus sion was given to the school finance ques tion, which Is quite as vexed as anytning coming before thecommlsslon. The school board asks 5103.000; they did not fix any specific rate. There is a deficiency of 524,000 to be meL and Messrs. Thomas and Frey were opposed to making any provision for such deficiency, merest oi the members favored the allotment of a rate which would supply one-third of this amount, me other two-thirds to be met by a reduction in other expenses. Particular ly was the board unanimous that the ex pense for janitors ought to be cut down. Messrs. Frey and Thomas were appointed to prepare an apportionment of the school expense allow ance among the various funds, as provided for in Mr. Seniss's resolution. now pending before the board, and to re port Monday evening. The commission then adjourned. STILL ANOTHER. The Orlglnnl Manuscript of General Har rison Turns Up ns n Relic of 1840. Among the interesting relics and me mentos of the memorable campaign of 1840 that are turning up just at this time Is one of rare Interest and historic value, which was received by General Harrison last Monday. It Is the original manuscript of President William Henry Harrison's In augural address, and it was sent to General Hlarrison by Colonel Fred Mortey, of De troit. Accompanying it was an interesting story of its preservarfftn. When General W. II. Harrison was elected president In 1840. there was a joung colored man living at North Bend named George De Baptlste. When the president-elect went to Wash ington to assume the duties of his position he took De Baptiste with him as a personal attendant. De Baptlste was standing near the president when hU Inaugural address was read, at the conclusion of whlch'the manuscript was handed him to take care of. Within a month the president died, and the manuscript remained hi the pos session of Da Baptiste, who afterward removed to Detroit Colonel Morley obtained It from a negro frieu ef Do Bap tiste's, for whom he procured a pardon from the penitentiary-. It Is a musty, well worn document of twenty-two closely written pages, neatly tied together with narrow blue ribbon. Round Table Colum bus Jon null. MIm Uallle Q. Brown.

With more foresight than I have witnessed in any officer of hU experience, he seemed to act upon me principle that success depended upon the thorough preparation in discipline and esprit of his command for conflict more than on any other Influence that could be exerted in the field itself, and when the collision came his command vin dicated his wisdom as much as his valor. In ail me achievements of the twentieth corps In mat campaign Colonel Hairtson bore a conspicuous part. At Resaca and and Peach Tree Creek me conduct of him self and command was especially distin guished. Colonel Harrison is an officer of superior abilities and of great professional and personal worth. It gives me great pleasure to commend him favorably to the honorable secretary with the assurance mat his preferment will be a just recognition of his sen Ices and martial accomplishments. Kespectfully, your obedient servant, JoSBm Uoukeic, Major General, Commanding. TWO ACCIDENTS. Biggins Cnts Himself A Young LaJj's Fall.
