"COME ASHORE." A NOVEL, BY ROBERT BUCHANAN, Beautifully illustrated, -will appear in Saturday's Argus, and continued each wetk until completed. Tbis is one of the most interesting storiei of the day, watch for it. Frank Hatton has sold his Burling ton Hawkeye. Mr. Hatton made a good thing out of the Hawkeye. The foreign press speaks as kindly and appreciatively of Grant as the press at nome. The death of such a man is a great victory. ExsPresident Tildkn and ei-Prcsis dent Arthur fitly head the committee appointed to provide a monument for ex President Grant. A morning paper says the penitentiary is waiting for Ward. It is a good thing for the penitentiary that it has a large amount of patience. The oldest living democrat, Michael Potter, of Cumberland county, Pa., has just celebrated his 101st birthday, and he is bale and hearty. Wnii-E the work of draping buildings is in progress, let it be borne in mind that scanty displays of bunting on the fronts of large structures have a mean and taw dy look. Better have only a flag at half mast than a famished looking festoou. The republican newspapers are sling ing the word "copperhead"' with a good deal of perseverance. Perhaps in a few days they will resurrect the ensanguined garment, and by that time they ought to b eperfectly happy. Mr. Vanderbilt's proposition that anybody who opposes the interest of bis roads by the creation of rival lines is a miserable thief, ought to command wide attention. Monopoly has not heretofore claimed such exclusive rights. Blaine's affection for John S. Wise in dicates an ardent desire to clasp hands across the bloody chasm. All th.it is nec- essary to republican acceptance of the proposition is that the ex-rebel shall kindly consent to vote the republican ticket. Two wealthy men in Denmark have committed suicide rather than shaie the disgrace of exposure with ten others who have been arrested for flagitious crimes such as have been recently brought to light in London. None of the titled British libertines has even the grace to be ashamed. Mb. CnANOLEB insists that the Dolphin is a stanch ship and can make fifteen knots an hour every time; but that if she isn't and can't, then the blame rests with Messrs. Whitney and Garland, not with Mr. Roach. Logic is William's strongest hold, and his contempt for mere facts is positively sublime. A nitl'NKEN black man, improperly named Laws, took possession of a street car in Atlanta, Ga., the other day, beat the driver, drove off the lady passengers, and tried to shoot a young man. South ern outrages of this kind are too frequent. The black mau must not get the impres sion that he alone is to occ'ipy the land. Mk. Chandleu finds that the govern ntent cannot lecovcr the money paid by Mr. Roach unless it backs down from its present position, and that if it does back down it cannot recover it for the reason that the contract between Hoach and the government was so drawn as to prohibit everything of that kind, it seems to be a desperate case. The death of Judge T. Ljle Dickey leaves a vacancy on the supreme bench of the state. The district is republican by over 12,000, yet the supreme judge has always been a democrat. Now the re publican papers are clamoring for a re publican, and declare they will make the election a partisan issue. The republican party could be engaged in a worthier cause than introducing politics in judici ary matters. TURN THE BASCAL8 OUT! Washington Post: There has never been but one right and decent way to transfer tbe government, and that is one which commends itself to everyone. The six or seven thousand offices contemplat ed in the civil service law should be left to the rules. The rules provide fur cases of incompetency, insubordination, or im moral conduct. The remaining offices, more than one hundred thousand in num ber, should be dealt with openly, fairly, and courageously. They belong to tbe administration, and tbe administration owes nobody aa apology for taking pos session. The people called the democracy to govern, and they expect them to do it. There is occasion for secrecy, stealth, acs ensation no need for anything save ab solute assurance that changes shall be made in the interest of the people, of or der, and of justice. I tried Tonguliue upon myself for facial euralgia, and it gave immediate relief. I lao tried (t upon one suffering intense pain from neuralgia of the bead; one dose jmvs perfect relief. C. W, Duval, M. I) , .Umllle, Mo. HOWGATE. Captain Ilowgate. an officer who held a high and responsible post in the federal service, embezzled a half a million doN larsor more of the public money, was ar rested and contrived to effect a mysteri ous escape from the officers who had him in custody. This occurred several years ago. It is a notorious fact that Howgate since then has been almost continuously within the jurisdiction of the United States and in constant communication with friends at Washington. It iB doubt ful whether he is gone even as far as Canada, and it is believed that he might easily have been recaptured if potent in- Silences had not been intersposed to shield and warn him. The assertion has been repeatedly made that Eowgate's stealings were shared with accomplices high in office, and there is ample reason to conclude that he could not have carried on so extensive a system of swindling without the aid of confederates, who have since labored strenuously to keep him out of the grasp of the law. llowate's im munity is a manifest and flagrant scandal. He should be recaptured at any cost and no matter who may suffer by his confes sion. if be cannot otherwise te reacnea the people would be willing to have him taken as state's evidence in order to un mask the rascals behind him. o com munity can afford to let its Howgntes and us Wards escape the penalty of their crimes while felons who lack money are promptly caught aid tried and jailed. NEVER HEARD OF GRANT THIS INCIDENT HAPrESED IN ROCKPORD, F COURSE . From the Rockford Register. A case of phenomenal, almost incredi ble, ignorance of eveu the most promi nent affairs and individuals of the nation was brought to light the day of Grant's death. Late in the afternoon a middle aged lady entered Northup's five and ten cent store on West State street. She wanted a bottle of that sticky stuff to pa?te paper to her pantry shelves. Muci lage? Yes, that was the stuff. It was pro cured for her and in the meantime the lady grew inquisitive about the blwk ana white insignia of mourning that draped the buildings along the street. Was some one dead? she asked. Mr. Jsorthup told her that Grant had cued that morning. "Iudeed, he must be a very wealthy and prominent citizen; did he own ail tee buildings that had the black and white cc them?" He didn't: How strange. Then he must have lots ot friends, and in this strain the customer ruminated, while the proprietor was too much astonished by the undenia ble evidence of black woods ignorance to explain that the whole nation was mourn ing the loss of its greatest general, a man known in almost every corner of the globe. An American woman, and I:li noisian and resident of our city, that piiles itself upon Us intelligence and learning didn't know who General Grant was! It seems incredible, but is as true as gospel. 'STUDENTS' SONGS." Moses King, while a student at Hur vard college, earned his entire college ex penses of about a thousand dollars a year Dy making books, such as "Harvard and its Surroundings." "King's Handbook o Boston," "The Harvard Register," etc. and smce graduation, a few years ago. Le has published many successful book: among them "Students' Songs," which has had the most remarkable sale ever known for a book of its class. Over 40, 000 copies of this "Students, Songs" have already been made, and the demand is said to be as active as ever. The proba ble cause of this success is the fact that prior to the publication of "Students' Songs" there was no book containing songs and music that have sprung up and became popular within college wails.dur ing the past ten years. Like almost all successes, it has its imitations, and some are rather deceptive in their makeup. Al ready several so-called collections of stu dent or college songs are in the market, but the genuine and original book of "Students' Songs," the only one thtt has been noteworthily successful is edited and compiled by Wm. H. Hills, a young Har vard graduate, and published by Moses King, at Harvard Square, in Cambridge, Mass. TIKEI).

FRAIL FAKQUHARiSO.N. THE MANAGER OF THE MUNSTER BANK NON EST INVENTUS. Bla Little Deficiency of 500, 000 Explains the Trouble Aa Immense Salvation Army Petition Before Parliament British Politics Note. London, July SI. The sensational feat ures of the Minister bank collapse nave at last leaked out Robert Farquharson, the recent junior manager of the con cern, has fled, and his books as examined far snow an embezzlement of (350,000 through falsified accounts. It is thought the total amount of his defal cation will reach $500,000. The sharehold ers have offered a large reward for the ap prehension of the fugitive. The reward placards describe him as 40 years old, five feet nine, average build, dark hair and whiskers, mustache slightly tinged with gray, fresh complexion, dark eye, promi nent, white front tee to, walks with a stoop, elegantly dressed, a native of Scotland. For twelve years Farquharscn had been in the service of the company. Suspicion first attached to him last Tuesday, when the official examiner discovered a half-erased pencil entry in his books. The embezzler promised to explain this, and left the room on a plausible pretext That was the last seen of him. It is supposed he immediately 'took an outgoing steamer. The absconder was director of several companies, notably the distillery company (limited). He was en. gaged to marry a wealthy Dublin lady named Hogers, and bad tcugbt, paying 1:25,000 for it, a bouse in Leeson puk; it furnishing was only completed Monday night. Two years ago 4,000 pounds sterling in gold were stolen from the bank, and a clerk named Lodge was charged, tried and acquitted. Farquharson was the only other man -vho had the safe key. There is no doubt now that he was the culprit, and tried to convict the innocent man. Farquharson did not live extravagantly, but he speculated heavily, and is supposed to have dissipated the greater part ot his stealings. Pcbun, July SI. The discovery of frauds in the accounts of the Munster bank has created an immense sensation here and in Cork and has intertilled the fear that its re sumption of bubines is impossible. CcKK. July SL The committee of in vestigation, which is inquiring into the af fairs of the suspended Munster bank, re ports that Farquharson willfully pre vented the Bank of Ireland from ad vancing to the Munster bank a desired loan, which would have enabled it to tide over the crisi-, by refusing to give the Bank of Inland the securities intrusted to him, witn wiiicn to obtain tne credit, and upon which the Bank of Ireland had decided to lend.

JAY GOULD GOING TO KNOCK THING9 ENDWAYS. Having Recently Lost 61,500,000, and Being Wroth Thereover The West Shore Deal and tbe Central Kew Railway Invention Busi ness Notes. New York, July 3!. The Sun in Its financial column says: "Mr. Jay Gould, according to stock exchange gossip, has suffered losses bv the recent rise in tbe Vanderbilt and Graneer stocks to tbe amount of $1,500,000. He has sold 100,000 shares of Union Pacific stock, a large quan tity of Western Union, and as much Mis- ouri Pacific as the market would bear. Being thus amply provided with funds, he propose to take the field, in conjunction with the Baltimore & OlIo party, against the Morgan-Lanier-Vander-bi,t-Voerihoffer combination.
