Secretary Evarts has decided upon the name of a Missouri man for consul at Manchester, but all efforts to learn who is the lucky one have proved unfailing. The name will probably be sent to the Senate to-day. The chances for the sake of a prediction even on the decision of a weak and changeable administration are as two to one in favor of Frank Thayer of St. Louis. Representative Baker, Republican, of Indiana, who aspires to be the Hoi man of the present Congress, offered a resolution against subsidies.

Tlity did so without the slightest in tention of committing themselves against the Texas and Pacific This was the case with the Missouri mem bers, as it was with many from other States. It will lie remembered that the Holman anti-subsidy resolution received in the first session of the last Congress thirty or forty more votes than the one to-day, and yet no one doubts that if the Texas and Pacific bill had been before the last House it would have passed. The State Senate of New York re cently posted a series of resolutions re questing the Board of Health of the city to make answer to the following questions in relation to the manufac ture and sale as a substitute for but ter: 1st. Whether in the opinion of the Board olemargerine is a good and wholesome article of food ? - 2d. That if it is not, what legislation is required to effectually prevent its manufacture and sale? That if it is, what addi tional legislation is necessary to pre vent its imposition upon the public as pure butter, the product of the dairy ? The inquiries were referred to the Sanitary Committee who have not yet reported. Our own State legislature should also make inquiries in this di rection.

A bill has been introduced in the Kentucky legislature, and will proba bly pass, requiring school text books to be uniform throughout the State, and forbidding a change in them to be made oftener than every five years. The object of this is to prevent the speculation in school books which the teachers and superintendents indulge in at the cost of the pupils.

The country will be glad to hear the assurances from the British officers in charge of the department of Mani toba, in the Dominion, that Sitting Bull and his hostile.-? are making war on the buffalo instead of Gen. Miles and his little garrison at Fort Keogh for another Custer massacre would put the nation out of humor with Congress that added lo the present financial excitement would not be healthy. The Russian terms of peace are cun ningly framed. It is difficult to see how the powers, after the precedent set by Germany and France, can ob ject to the money indemnity, and yet nothing is more certain-, than that this implies the ultimate acquisition of a large portion of the Turkish provinces. Had Russia openly demanded large territorial acquisitions, there would have been trouble with Austria, aud perhaps with German'. Veiled under the guise of "war indemnity," how ever, the Czar, may in the end, get more than he could have otherwise asked for. In view of recent excitement against the Chinese in San Francisco, the California Assembly has passed an act purporting to be a measure for prevention of riots : "Even person who, in the presence r hearing of twenty-five or more per sons, shall utter any language with intent either to incite a riot at the ! 1 nrocnnf nr in tlio fiitnrn nr nnr nnl nr as a a a -'acts OI . n - i - , - .

The act is ccrtainl' very equivocal in its wording, and might easily be abused for the suppression of just and Hayes will agree to sign such a bill, I .1. it may ne accepted instead oi the "Dollar of our Fathers." Not much, excepting the financial question, is talked of in Washington now. It is agreed that the adoption of the trade dollar will avoid the confusion of hav- ing two silver dollars, differing in value and circulating side by side at the same time. Mr. Cameron, of Sitting Bull has invaded the United States with a force of 500 lodges. The St. Louis party that went to Cuba to aid in establishing commercial relutions between that place aud the inetropulis of the Mississippi valley, are returning without accomplishing much. An attempt to roti an express train on the Atchiaou, Topeka & Santa i'e IL 11. on the Sunday, proved a disas trous failure to the rascals, who were outwitted by a station agent and a sharp conductor. Missouri has now live vacancies at the .Naval Academy. The Congress men who have control of these ap pointments have been notified that the day for examination of candidates cannot be later than June 21, and the appointments, are to be made on July 1. Here's a chance for our young heroes. Another Postal Savings Bank bill was brought forward in the House yesterday by Chairman Waddell of the Postoflicc Committee. It provides for a central office in Washington, and branch olfice in towns where the year ly pay of the postmaster isSGOOor up ward. The rate of interest is to be not more than 3 per cent., and accrued interest is to be added every half year to the principal and lecome a part of it. No dcMsitor is to be allowed to have at any time to his credit more than SI, 500. Deposits are not to be seized for debt, except with the depos itors consent, and are to be exempt from all State aud municipal taxes They may le invested at the option of the Government in its owu bonds, aud the faith of the United States is pledged fr their safe keeping and re payment. St. Louis Time of Monday says : The voluminous petitions ami recom mendations for a commutation of the death sentence of Wieners will be presented to the Governor to-day. During the last week considerable sympathy ha been awakened in be half of the dimmed man on account of the persevering efforts of his young si-tor to obtain a commutation of the sentence to imprisonment for life. With the strong prejudice existing against her brother, aud but little knowledge of the world's indifference, she has labored unceasingly to save him from the hangman. This pure, unfaltering love of a sister, which proved true when al! others failed, is what has touched the nobler feelings of a great majority of those who have asked that Wieners might live. If he is saved it will not be owiug to the mitigating circumstances that his brain was fired by liquor when Law rence was murdered, but? to the de voted aud persistent efforts of the lit tle girl who has hesitated at no obsta cle to save him from the gallows. Although it is expected that an armistice will be signed at Adrianople this week, to be followed by a treaty of peace that will be ratified within sixty days, there is no cassation of the demand in Europe for American breadstuffs. Our shipments continue as heavy as ever, and the orders for future deliveries are more numer ous than they have been since the war commenced. The fact is that in man' parts of Europe the stocks of flour aud corn are very low down, and the usual sources of supply are utterly inadequate for replenishment, and will remain so for at least six months to come. The close of the conflict in the East will certainly have the effect to lower prices, but as these have lieen unduly forced upon purely speculative grounds, no harm will result to legiti- mate trade.

"It was cold enough to freeze the heart out of a miser and make the white hear dance for joy," grumbled Tom Orton, as he looked" out the wiu dow upon the snow-cumbered streets. "How I wish I could stay at home to night and take care of you and the babies, Jenny. And I would only tor-" He thought of how much poverty was pinching them, aud would not sadden the hearts of those he loved by mentioning it. Only for what, Tom ?" asked his wife from the bed, where, ill herself. she was taking care of their two sick children. "Only that they'll lie wanting me," he replied. "You know it is Christ man Eve, and we have gotten up an extra entertainment." "Yes, Tom, and a sorry day for us, now that I am sick, and the children wanting medicine and " but she could not liear to add a feather's weight to his load "aud so much depends upon vou." "I know," he replied, hastily brush ing the moisture from his eves and strivinir to conceal his anxiety; "but I am well and strong, Jennv, and the winter is nearly over aim you win an lie well again." "But if anything should happen to you? she questioned, with a heavy sigh. "Don't think there is much danger." he said, repressing a sob as he thought or how desperate wouia ne tneir su nation of the rent due, the scanty store of provisions, the little of fuel remaining, the more than month of hard winter yet before them, the need. of a family that a jmnr man learns by the mot bit'er of experience.

"Don't, fear, I'll takere of myself won t run any extra risk, ami as l have nothing to do in the latter part, will be home earlv." He stepied to the bedside, drew the cover more closety anonr. ms wiie anu children, kissed them, put the coal in the stove though eerv lump was as a gulden ducat to a Shvlock in his thru situation, attended to itverything possible for I heir comfort and prepared to face the cold and. go to his nightly employment. Yet an uncommon spell seemed to chain him. He lingered, fidgeted, glanced uneasily at the clock. "Isn't it time vou were off, Tom?" questioned his wife. "You know it is tiito a walk." "Yft. Jenny, but somehow I don't feel like leaving you alone.'' "O! I am used to staying alone." So she was, poor thing! "And you said vou would lie home early. "Yes, yes." An active, sober man was he, and a skilled performer. He had Wn train pd to the profession from childhood knew no other, and under ordinary circumstances could easily "keep his head aliove water " But the "tenting season" had closed exceptionally early, the winter was hard, money was tight, and evTy place of amusement suffered in consequence. To these things were added sickness, and brave-hearted as he was he could not suppress a shiver of anxiety as the future stared him in the face. He passed along the narrow street, through more pretentious ones oass ed the houses of millionaires, and en tered Broadway, that, at least, was brilliant and gay, as if there was nothing of poverty or human suflering in the world as if none in the great city were familiar with hunger and cold and sickness as if there never was to be any awakening from a golden dream of luxurj' end pleasure. "Ah! thoughtless wealth and fashion," he murmured bitterly, as he saw fur-clad forms, awd pampered steeds, aud richly-mounted harness, ami gilded sleighs, and costly robes dash along, "how much ye will have to answer for in the day of final reckon ing, for neglecting your poor, toiling, suffering brothers and sisters." But no time had he to linger the clock in the window told him that, and with a sigh that his wife aud little ones should not have their quota of the good things of this world, he passed on. Suddenly a confused cry a wild tumult the drawing away of teams upon either side, or dashing into cross streets startled him and he knew something unusual was taking place. Then came the shout of "run away ! runaway!" and he felt that life or property, or both were being whirled on to destruction. "Are vou mad ? Do you want to be killed?" hurriedly asked many, nsj they ran to places of safety, and he remained standing upon the curb stone. He gave no heed to the warning. He had braved death far too often to shrink from it in any event, and most certainly when at such a distance. His eyes were fixed up the street upon a team of noble bays that were tearing along, mad with fright, and surging the sleigh from side to side were running at their utmost speed, each striving to outdo the other, straining every nerve were running awav driverless. Had that been all he would not have troubled himself, deep as was his affection for blooded steeds, for he was not at the moment particularly in sympathy with wealth. It Wits quite another matter that chained him. At the first ontcry he had spruug to and half climbed a lamp-post, and so obtained a clearer view one that thrilled his heart to the very core. caused his breath to be more deeply drawn, and his pulse to momentarily cease to beat. Iti the sleigh was a young and beau tiful woman, iiale with terror, and clasping two lovely children to her breast. Orton thought of his Jenny and their little ones, and resolved to save. The impulse was noble, hut how was it to be accomplished? Far beyond any human control were the frantic horses. To attempt to seize the reins as they dashed past, and to stop them, would be madness would be to be dragged down and trampled to death. He saw this saw that the course of the horses would bring them directly upon him, and though the crowd furiously warned him of his danger, he stirred not, only braced muscles and nerves, and set his teeth . -.l .1 . r wan ueiermiuauon. "My God !" exclaimed a man, who bolder than the rest, sprang forward, grappled and would have drawn him away. "You will be killed instautiy killed I" Tom Orton shook him off just as the horses reached him, watched his op portunity, seized upon the harness as they were sweeping past, sprang light- ly UKin the back of the nearest, gras- ed the reins, aud turning to the affrighted woman aud screaming children, shouted : Keep quiet. I will save vou." And save them he did. Before a block had been traversed the horses I .1.1 .1 iuic niaiiu iiiii.uitc mat iiu ;us iiiuu mat,.r, and the sharp curb cutting! deeply into their mouths brought them to a standstill. f The crowd cheerd lustilv the! police assisted the woman and children asked lor her preserver, that .she might thank and reward him.

The result was soon painfully appar ent. Though some were accomplished in safety yet when attempted leaping over a banner the fluttering frightened the horse, he bolted suddenly and Tom Orton was hurled heavily to the ground ! He endeavored to rise and make light of pain, hut a strange sickness came over him, the light flickered and grew dim, he grasped for air, and knew nothing more until somewhat revived in the dressing-room he heard familiar voices. OGod! what will become of Jenny and the liabies,' he gasped, faintly. "I am done for, and and " his tears and sobs choked bird. "Don't fear for them.

Very tenderly whs the noble-hearled fellow taken to his humble abode, and the scene, when he was laid upon the bed, side by side with his sick wife and children, caused every eye to overflow with tears.

"I can bear anything," said Tom, hut for you, Jenny, and the children, and he entirely broke down. "And I could curse that doctor for an unfeeling wretch," blurted out one of the most passionate. "But it is ever thus. We give ourlives freely to please the public and when anything happens they care nothing for us. Tom Orton groaned heavily. The sound awoke his little girl.

The de fenders, lying on the inner slope of the mounds ruins, worn out with lon J watching and continuous uproar. were mostly sunk in that deep sleep of utter weariness so well known to the soldier. Before they fairly wi.ke and commenced their battle, groups of Turks had scaled the ramparts on either side of the pip ami were firing down into it, while a body of some five hundred had succeeded in flank ing the line and entered Jew Street. The Grand Master, conceiving that the hour of martyrdom was at hand. unfurled the great standard of fet. John and .called upon his Knights to follow him to death.
