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
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.

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
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
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.
