Central Committee for Prince Geonre’s county. JunelSsT. Death of Ex-Senator Hunter- Hon. R. M. T. Hunter died at li’S home, Fount Hill, Essex County,A a., last Monday. Mr. Hunter was one of Vir ginia’s most eminent citizens for many years before and during the late war. — lie was born in 1809. He served sever al terms in the national House of Repre sentatives. beii g elected speaker ol that body in 1539. Subsequently he was elected United States Senator and made chairman of the Senate finance commit tee in 1849, which position lie held till the opening of the war. He gaveDuug las a close run for the Presidential nomi nation at the national democratic con vention at Charleston in ISCO. During the war lie served as confederate secreta ry of state and confederate senator. It is'said that this distinguished man was glad to accept three years ago a mi nor position in the custom service which paid him S6O per annum. Forty years ago he would have been pointed out in the gallerv of the United States Senate, as one of the great Democratic Statesmen of the day, conspicuous for his ability, his ii.liucncc and his character. How stange are the vicissitudes of life ! Honored to day ; forgotten to morrow. The Ealtimcre Primaries- On Wednesday Baltimore held her Democratic primaries to choose delegates to the throe Legislative district Conven tions which met yesterday, to nominate candidates for the House of Delegates and one candidate for State Senator.— In many of the wards the contest was very spirited and a largo vote was polled. The result was in favor of the regulars, or Rasin faction of the party, sixteen wards being claimed by them, while Mor risen had only three and Slater one. In the thirteenth, one of the Morrison wards the Hon. George Colton was successful in his candidacy for the Legislature, beat ing Joseph E. Hogan, by 189 majority When Colton’s election was announced, quite an ovation was held at the Hall of the Crescent club, and the victor appear ing on the scene, was herno to the plat form on the shoulders of the crowd and compelled to speak. End of the B- & 0. Deal- Mr. Robert Garrett sent a dispatch on Wednesday to the Ph iladelphia Record in which he stated that the negotiations, of which so much has been made, are ter minated. The reason given is that this syndicate which was to acquire a large block of the Baltimore and Ohio stock, in such away as was believed would he beneficial “to all the parties concerned,” having filled to comply with their en gagements at the aphointed time, all ne gotiations have been declared to he at an end. IL says : “The Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company—its properties, including its large telegraph system and the ownership of its stock—remain now as they wore at the opening of the negotiations. The widespread public interest which these negotiations have excited and the many false and foolish rumors to which they have given rise justify me in de parting from my usual course and making this formal statement of their final ter mination. Tlie Blaine organs seem to think, says the Xcw York Slur, that they can injure ITesi ijent Glevelatul by .describing him as “an as tute and able politician., The public ion quickly appreciates tbe difference between that commanding ability in politics tbal se enres tbe support of a great party and adds to its Strength and the petty trickery to which small schemers resort for the sake of personal advantage or local prominence. There could be few things more senseless Ilian to suppose that the people are prejudiced against able politicians. On the contrary, they re-pect and admire them, and they know that the world is governed by just sneb men. Iftbeie ever was apprehension about President Cleve land’s success in any quarter deserving of re spect, it arose from fear tliat professional pol iticians might deceive him. But Mr. Cleve land has been a hard worker in politics a! 1 his life, and understands the methods and mo tives of politicians. ’1 ho good ones he re>i"-< *> and esteems, as Horatio Seymour did. Ibe had ones, he understands and avoids. Sel fish and corrupt or misguided politicians arc unable to obtain any advantage over him, be cause he is as well informed as they arc, and is rendered invincible by the purity ot Lis mo tives and tbe manly sincerity by which ab bis acts arc guided. According to letters received from Bucharest* M. df Coutonly, tbe French misinter there, in a speech at a banquet on the l-lth instant said tbal tbe French Republicans are preparing for a sanguinary struggle which would be tbe more formidable the longer tbe outbreak was delayed, and be concluded by offering a toast to the bealtli of tbe Russian minister, M. Olas sof, whereupon all present shouted 1 .success to Russia, tbe friend of Franee. OUR WASHINGTON LETTER- W-V-iuxoTox. 1). July 2(Hb, 1887. j Tbe salutary effects of the lessons taught by , the recent exposure of tbe rcscalities of Bacon ; in the Patent Oflioe, and Harvey in tbe Treas ury, are perceptible in many ways. Tbe beads of Bureaus arc more diligent and vigilant as well as exacting regarding the methods of eon ducting the public business, and the clerks ap preciate the state of affair; by increased activ- j i,y and thoroughness in pet forming their allot- | ted tasks. In all the Departments there is an j ill-concealed feeling of apprehension, not to say suspense, as to what a day may tiring, and your feels safe ‘in predicting that the end is not yet—that others in high places are cowering in dread of an impartial investigation of their doings-realizing that the result would be ruinous to thorn. I have good reason to believe that a general hut quiet ex amination of the accounts of all disbursing of fleers is being made by direction of no less an authority than tbe president himself. Postmaster General Vilas was partly en gaged this week in the much needed work ot revising the postal regulations, winch have not been amended since 1877- The Postmas ter General also found time to reply, in the negative, to the letter of the posial clerk, ask ing permission to hold a convention to discuss the needs of the service, and advising them that the proper way to secure these aims and etuis would be to make sneb suggestions to tbe Department as might occur to them in the practical performance of their duties. Up to the present ibis month. Government receipts amount to al-out stl.o 10.000. and tbe expenditures, inclusive of $12,000,000, in pensions, *t> making an oiior mous excess of disbursement over receipts.— It is estimated that ihe receipts for the balance of the month will be sl.oon,oo<i a day, and that the expenditures will be fully as large.— The total amount of bonds redeemed under the call, which matured July Ist, is .§18,0b0,- 250, leaving still outstanding of the call §1,020,- ti.jii, f tie whole amount of called bonds out standing is §5,000,450. At present the Treas ury fluffs itself unable to supply the heavy de mand for note- of small denominations, but orders have been issued to do so as soon as practicable. The disbursing officers of the Treasury, were somewhat surprised the oilier morning when a duly authorized committee of expert accountants called unceremoniously to count their cash and see if the hooks would balance. •Similar action will bo taken with all disburs ing officers. Their accounts have been over hauled, and ii will be a great wonder if much crookedness in high places is not uncovered. The Year's Exports. The export statistics for the fiscal year end ing Juno Jo have been made up. They show that in spile of wheat corners and other hin drances to a free movement of marketable products our exports of breads tuffs and pro visions are in excess of last year. Tbe wheat export, including floor, was equivalent to 151,780,Riff bushels. This quantity was about one-tbird of last year’s crop. In other words, for every two bushels consumed and held in slock at home, one bushel was sent abroad. This quantity exceeded by 0 1 per cent, the wheat export of 188(> and was greater iliac that of any year since 1 SSI. We could have spared 30,000,000 bushels more without ten dering wheat scarce for home consumption, and as tbe prospects of the present year's crop are fully equal to that of hist year, we arc in a position to supply a big foreign demand if the demand should be made. The corn ex port was below that olTast year a good many million of bushels, but the wheat export was j so large that the total value of breadstuff’s ex ported reached $102,000,000, a sum greater by 32 per cent, than that of the preceding year. In the matter of provisions the showing is not so satisfactory. The export of cattle and bogs decreased 17 per cent, and of fresh beef SO per cent. This was due, no doubt, partly to unfavorable legislation against American meat products and partly to an increasing supply from Australia and other British colo nial possessions. There was a sufficient in cicase in the exports of tallow, bacon and hams to bring tbe value of the total exports of beef and pork products to about 4 percent, above that of I'-bi. There was a falling off' in tbe export of butter and cheese which was j nearly made good by an increase in tbe oleo margarine export. These ligtir; l are chiefly interesting as show ing that, in spite of determined efforts to in crease tbe production of wheat, a strong for eign demand still continues to exist. The storms of Sunday, Monday and early Wednesday morning inflicted great damage iu various pot lion.- of Maryland. So far ten lives aie reported to have been lost at differ ent points in the S'ate, four of them by light ning. There was a 1.-o great damage to build ings, live slock, grow iiig crops and timber.— The storms in their extent and intensity and the amount of damagd lesiilling from them will long be cited as among the most re markable in the history of the State.
