His condition did not excite apprehension, as he had been frequently ill Kfore. His recuperative power was as great as his . mental vigor. It is now feared that he- is suffering his Lust illness.

A reporter of the Mail and Express lias interviewed C'h.as. A. Dana, of the Sun. The first question was, ''What are the chances of Democratic success in the coining campaign?" The answer was, The probability is very poor, likewise the possibility. In order to succeed in an election against the party in possession of the Govern ment you must have your forces all united, and the position of Car' isle and Morrison is such that the Democratic party is disunited and quarreling among inemseives, ana tne icepuoneans, wbouo not deserve success, will succeed. It is ; riskv to undertake the vocation of a I prophet, and I do not know what the fu- ! ture is gointo bring forth." THfKW YORK FAILURES. New Your, May 10. Ferdinand Ward was the only member of the firm of Grant & Ward, with the exception of W. C. Smith, the broker member, who visit ed the office ''of the firm tlu's morning. He went at once to his private office, where he remained in consultation with Mr. Davies. the assignee and receiver. He refusal to say anything. The legal complications have interfiled considera bly with the work of investigation, but in the eil the appointment of a receiver will be of benefit, as the affairs of the firm can be more readily straightened - ut. RtJmors were again furrent this morn-; ingthat Ward had been arrested, but the oftlv foundation for them was that i herever he went he was followed bv v vl . detectives. It is probable no arrest will be made until the statement of the as- signee is ready, unless Ward should in tlii mnirfnA nTrtml . l ,n.... il. .ii., a . the meantime attempt to leave the State. General Grant was not at the office to day. . Colonel Fred Grant said he had no news to communicate, and that he did not know how his affairs stood, but that lie feared he had lost all he possessed.

Grant & "Ward. Xt'w York Sun. In Boston a few years since a very in teresting banking institution came to grief. It was conducted by women, for women, and until the law interfered is with its bu-iness was lucrative in the ex ! treme. Its attractiveness to depositors lay in the alluring rates of interest which it paid, by reason, as its president ex , plained, of the remarkable facilities and opportunities for investment which it ! e l joyed. The system of finance upon which the firm of Grant & Ward achieved its down fall appears to have very nearly resem i bled that of the women's banking insti ! tut ion of Boston. It paid marvelous j rates of interest, and it explained its j ability to do so by its alleged relations i with Government contracts and contrac ! tors and other alleged advantages and fa ! cilities which it enjoyed through the I ..-:.1.....1 :.. ,.f r ioui-.--in i!ii minium c ui one oi ns mem bers. Gen. TJ. S. Grant. Trading upon the credulity and cupidity of men who ought to know lietter, but who were de- i ceived by the plausibility of the represen tations made to them, Grant & Ward transacted an immense volume of ficti tious business, and paid out of the capi tal loaned them enormous sums as inter- i est upon the same. j It was one of the largest displays of j kite-flying that Wall street has ever seen. 1 and it went on merrily as long as greedy j investors kept the breeze going and Gen. ! Grant, in his capacity as the passive and j unconscious tail of the kite, kept that ! aged device steady. ; It now appears that when the freeze j was exhausted ami the tail woke up and realized what had been going on, some I five millions or more of paper decorated : with the names of Grant fc Wnrl ,, ,nmn,T r;,ins .w,.,.;,,., sons.

Marriage of Blacks and AYliite. An imjx rtant case has been decided in the Foiiee Court of Toledo, Ohio. Robert Bailey, colored, was married to a young white woman. Under the statues of Ohio, the marriage or cohabitation of white jvrsons with these having the least taint of African b-ood i a criminal act. On complaint leing made, Bailev was ar- rested and tried for the offence. He was convicted and sentencetl to pav a fine of $100 and costs, and to le imprisoned three months. His counsel entered a motion at once for a new trial, and gave bail for a hearing of the case at the next term of the Court of Common Pleas.

THE RESPONSIBILITY FOR DEFEAT. Boston Post ( Dem.). The Democrats have shown an honest desire to reform the tariff and have made a good fight. The responsibility for fail ure does not rest upon them. THE XEXT STEP IX ORDER. Philapelpliiii Inquirer (Kep.) The next Congress, with Republican majorities in both Houses, will make a careful, reasonable and scientific revision of the customs laws and regulations, eliminating all objectionable features, but preserving the principle of protection in tact." SHORN OF BAGOAGF. Xow Yor!i Evening Post ( Dein.i The appearance of the party or.ee more on the Presidential field without any ' baggage in the shape of ideas or policy, j would certainly le the most delightful j spectacle its enemies could have, and its J effectiveness will be greatly increased if i the Morrison bill is treated by the mana- gers as a blunder. ( NO RETREAT OR LOWERING FLAG. j St. Louis Republican. There will, of course, be no retreat or lowering of the Hag of the Democracy. They will go into the approaching na- j tional campaign with the doctrine of j revenue reform inscriled on their ban- j ners with all the emphasis of unabated j earnestness, and those who battle with j them will have to march under that sign j and with that profession of opinion. This ! is no time for hesitancy, nor will there I be wavering or doubting in the ranks. ' i ANOTHER VIEW OF THE RESULT. New York Herald. j 'The Democrats have suffered from a defeat from which it will be difficult to recover. The' must lear the full results of the defeat, and there is nothing in it that can be made into a victory. Nor is the victory to the Republicans. They cannot check tariff agitation as they wished to do: that has gone beyond their reach. But they have given themselves the opportunity to snatch a victory from their opponents shoe Id it lx-eome neces sary. V PIIISOXEK OX A S.NWY l'EAK.

Pike's Teak lias been scaled and Ser geant Ramsey, the e'eaguered signal officer, has been revict.ialed. Ramsey bad leen alone on tio submit for seven weeks and not a word had been beard from him. On top of a snow-bound peak, three miles above the level of the sea, 1ms position may lie imagined. Last Tuesday Sergeant Hall and Messrs. YVid meyer and Beckhans started out for the ',eak with the determination of getting there. They left Manitou at 5:45 p. in., and reached the submit of the peak at 8 p. m., the following night, after having been on the trail twenty-six hours. They went a-4 far as Booth's on mules, where they left them and took to snow-shoes. At the time there was a blinding snow storm, which continued during the en tire journey. It was almost impossible to follow the trail, as all landmarks were obliterated and the taps of the tall trees ! covered with snow. The most tiresome I and dangerous part of the trip was from : the timber line to the peak, a distance of j three miles, taking fourteen hours to ac- ! complish this part of the journey. They i could only proceed about a foot tit a time ! and could only gain a foothold by break- ' ing a hole in the ice crust with each step. ; Upon reach'ng the station the relief party found Mr. Romsey sitting by the , store picking a banjo and apparently as ; well contented as if in a farlor. The de- ', scent was made in eight hours. "Why the Kill tor Declined. I let a man here, says an exchange, not lone? ago,a barrel of flour, to go to the orphan psyluru, that we had a hundred 'adies in this town handsomer than Lan'T- try. I was to write them in a Lexington ; H. A. MEYEIl will do his own l.akinjrin fu newspajxr, and the public was to decide ' tm-e. who should pay for the barrel of flour. It was a draw lt. I wrote out a list of an even hundred, with some introductory remarks, and handed it to an editor here, lie looked at it and inquired if that was all of my list? I sa'd yes, and to my dis gust he srdd he wou'd not publish that list for 100. I wanted to know why lie would not, and he said because he would get killed for it; and he amplified to the effect that his hide would le as full of thirty-two caliber holes before night a? a piece of sheet iron at an exposition wash er cutter. I told him I could certairdy see nothing but compli ment and u,ntlemanlv gallantry in ir and was sure nobody could ) offended dtott,,;,; he said; -they are not these that you ; have got that I am afraid of. but thev 1 are those that are left out."
