TJnerthodox Beeeher.
New York. Jane 23. Beeeher is seam
prominent on account of his bitter philippio
yesterday against what he terms orthodoxy.
Tha Herald savs be baa discovered that a cir
cular letter, intended to be kept secret within
tne limits ot tne ennrcnes to wmcn it is ad
dressed, has been sent out from a " house not
far distant " from bis own church, tne ob
ject of which is to " institute a covert meas
ure of Hostility " against iteecber and bis
congregation. This was the immediate incen
tive of yesterday's discourse. He said: "If
tne works of the devil were anywhere on ex
position, it was in tha external developments
of the Christian church. The wor-t kind of
assassination to-day was that cotnmi ted by
men who pray In order that they may stab.
For the sake of orthodoxy men destroyed re
ligion ; for tbe sake of a pious doctrine they
served the devil ; for the sake of all that is
pure tbey did ail that is .mean and nasty."
The Herald gladly hails him as a convert to
its own opinions.

New Yokk, June 23. The Pacific Mail
Co. this morning gave notice that they
were prepared to name through rates on
freights from fiew X or K to tsan Francisco

The "Cattle Crop "in Colorado.
Denver. June 23. A few days since
exciting rumors of cattle disease on the
divide. 30 miles south of Denver, were
current. Investigation has proved that
there was needless alarm, no new cases
beinsr reported for ten days. Timely
precautions have been taken, and the
! president of the Colorado Cattle Growers'
Association states that the infection was
i confined to a few small herds and had not
extended to the plains. The " ronnd-nps
are nearly through. Cattle are reported
in eood condition generally, with less
; losses than formerly, ana witn a greater
increase in calves than m average years,

The Chicago Outrage.
Chicago. June 23. The Lehr and
Wher Verien, which held a picnicyester
day outside the city, made no effort on
their return to release prisoners, as was
feared. It seems that the picnic was
given by a Bohemian Sunday school, and
that a numerous gang of drunken roughs
had all alonflr firiven considerable trouble,
until finally those in charge of matters
sent for the snarp onooiers as a promo
tion. Thay armed at about a ociock,
and ahnrtlv after that time trouble began
u ralatml. Tlio lieutenant to-nignt de
nies that he cave the order to fire, but
says that after he had cleared the grounds
by a bayonet charge mere was such a
rain of stones and sticks that his men be
ean a desultory fire without orders. The
members of the company all refuse to
talk ; 17 are detained, tne ouiers navug
ruwn rpWvl. The arrival of tbe police
to conduct them to the station ppobably
saved them from personal violence, which
was threatened by tne surrounding ei
cited mob of about 2ww.

Arrest and Comfrsatcm of the Marderrr of
Mrs. Hall.
Boston, June 24. This morning Cox,
the murderer of Mrs. Hull, gave the
officers a minute disoription of how the
murder was committed, saying that he
smothered Mrs. Hull with his hands and
declaring that he did not inteud to kill
her. Steinberger, the pawnbroker, vis
ited Cox and identified him as the man
who had pawned a cameo set of jewelry,
wnicnled to Jsis arrest. In conver
sation with an officer Cox said : I don't
want my mother to know anything about
this until after I am hung. The officer
said : " Perhaps you wont be hung.
There may be a'' chance of your being
sentenced to state prison for life. " Cox ;
" I would rather he hung than shut np
all my life, and when the time comes
send my things to mother. " Cox ap
pears nervous, ap parently realizing the
terrible position in which he is placed.
He says that he came back to New York
after the murder and never felt any anx
iety about being captured.
Cox, who killed Mrs Hull, will return
voluntarily to New York to-night. To
day he was taken to a photograph gallery,
and a large crown followed him to and
from the city hall. Cox told the officers
that he had no idea Mrs. Hull was dead
until twenty-four hours after the rob

the terms of capitulation of Aizpnra,
who started the revolution in Aspinwall
on the 7th inst. : Aizpura surrenders

A cable dispatch from Callao via Lon
don, yesterday, alluded to the bombard
ment of Antofogasta by the Peruvian
ship Huascar. and the Star and Herald
has the following in reference to the af
fair : At Antofogasta the Huascar had
a sharp engagement with shore batteries,
several heavy Erupp guns being in posi
tion and silenced their fire, but it was
found impossible to destroy the water
condensers, one of the chief objects of
the expedition, since having received 48
Hours notice of the approacn of tne ram,
the authorities had time to effectually
protect these machines with piles of bags
filled with with sand and, ritrate. The
Hauscar captured two Chilian merchant
ships loaded with copper ore and dis
patched them for Callao. She then cut
the cable leading from Antofogasta to
Caldera and returned to Iquiqui, where
she barely escaped the Chilian squadron,
these vessels appearing unexpectedly in
tne omng, but giving time to tne Huas
car to avail herself of her superior speed
and get to sea, exchanging shots as she
passed, but without effect-
Railroad Prospects and Probabilities.
Chicago, June 25. The Times' New
York special says : At Boston and San
Francisco capitalists are interested in
the progress which is made with the
Southern Pacific road now being pushed
forward ; and it is expected that within
fifteen months connection will be made
with the Missouri River, Fort Scott &
Gulf Road. This is a Boston enterprise
almost exclusively, and is regarded as
Having a brilliant future. It is said here
on Walt street that before this connec
tion is made arrangements will be com
pleted for an unbroken line from Chica
go in a southwesterly direction, so that
when a junction with the Southern Paci
fic is effected, trains can run through di
rect from Chicago to San Francisco.
This enterprise will destroy the monopo
ly of existing Pacific roads and will be
of great advantage to shippers by forc
ing lower rates for freight and passage.
Managers of the St Louis. Iron Moun

S)lrer legislation
WASHXKOTOir, June 88.-The senate fi
nance committee this morning, by a mar
jority vote, made several important
amendments to the house bill providing
for the exchange of trade dollars for le
gs tdcr silver dollars, andldecided
that its further consideration should be
postponed until next .December, with
the understanding, however, that . the
bill and amendments are then to be re
ported to the senate as soon as practi
cable. The principal amendment adopt
ed to-day provides that the exchange of
the legal tender dollars for trade dollars
shall be at the market value of the latter,
regarded as bullion and not " at par, " as
provided by the house bill. The com
mittee also struck out the house pro
viso that trade dollars, recoined under
this act, shall not be counted as part of
the coinage of silver required by act of
Febnary 28, 1878. The vote on the ques
tion of adopting these amendments, and
also on postponing the report until next
December, was as follows : Yeas : dJay
ard, Kernan, Morrill and Ferry ; nays :
Wallace, Voorhees and Beck. The ob
ject in not reporting the bill this session
is to preclude the possibility of the War
ner silver bill being moved as an amend
ment in the senate, with the result of
prolonging the session.
- ' The atleklsMT PolhC "
WaSHiNOTOir, June 28, The story of
an alleged bargain for the votes of 14 or
15 southern. retresenta,tivea to nrocnrn 1
the passage of the marshals appropria- i
tion bill without riders, which was quot-
ed but discredited on the streets last
night, has been entirely exloloded to-day.
A careful inquiry proves also that there
is no prospect of a break in the Demo
cratic ranks upon this question for any
cause or in any contingency likely to
wise- The Democrats in both. branches
of congress appear to be unanimous in
favor not only of adjourning as soon as
a veto is received, but of adjourning im
mediately after the possible call. Even
such conservative Democrats as Alex. H.
Stephens now unite with the rest of the
party in open expressions of this deter
mination. Stephens said to-day with
reference to the marshals appropriation
bill : " I am for sending it to the presi
dent as often as ae calls us together with
out dotting aa I or crossing a T, and I
am willing to sit here and do that until
the 46th congress expires. " He added
that he did not know a single democrat
in the house who could not be relied up
on to fight out this controversy to the
end. Senator Ben Hill, who has been
one of the most conservative counsellors
in all the democratic caucuses heretofore
held this session, asserts positively that
no southern democrat will make any fur
ther concession. The chairman, Atkins,
says : "I shall not report the bill again,
in fact shall not call a meeting of the
committee on-appropriations until next
December unless congress gets into gen
eral legislation. In that event we will
not report any other bill in regard to
marshals. " It is therefore evident that
the dominant party has reached the stick
ing point, and a later dispatch to night
may very possibly convey to your readers
information that in view of this firm de
termination, President Hayes has con
cluded to abandon all purposes of call
ing another extra session. There proba
bly will be less than a quorum in the
house of representatives to morrow, and
the senate committee on appropriations
win aououess recommend concurrence
in house adjournment resolutions with
out amendments, as any change in the
time proposed, namely 4 o'clock to-morrow
afternoon, would require concur
rence of a quorum of the house. Action
by the senate upon this resolution can,
however, be prevented bv a sinde nbiec-
tion after it is reported back from com
mittee to morrow, and in this event no
final adjournment con be effected before
Ilaree' Ae-loo.
The president in determining to recall
congress immediately, does it to make
sure mat me passage of caucus bill No.
2 is the sober judgment -of the majority.
If congress adjourns early enough in the
day the president will call them back
the same day. The main object of the
recall is based upon a belief that the ma
jority in congress is really desirous of
passing unrestricted bills, and that by
sending this bill back an unrestricted
one will be passed by consevative demo
crats and republicans.
It can be stated authoritatively that
the president's inclination is to recon
vene congress by proclamation should
adjourment occur without the appropria
tion for marshals being made.
v ashikoton, june xnere seems
to be no doubt that the judicial appro
priation bill will receive the president's
signature. The bill for the payment of
u. . juarsiiais, etc., will be vetoed. The
message will be short.

A Bird's Courtship god Delta.
A lady who lives on Olive street relates
the following: A few days ago there fell
in front of her window from a tree a
"chippy." or ground bird, such as chatter
about tbe parks and streets. It seemed
weaned and crippled. She nicked it ud
ana earned it m tne nouse, fed it from
her own mouth, and at niebt placed it in
the cage with her canary. The canary at
once bestowed on tbe new comer all the
attention of a mother, and nestled beside
ttie little stranger during the night. In
the morning the lady placed the "chippy"
in a window so that it might have the
privilege of regaining its freedom. It
Illumed its tinv wincm and wont, awav
The canary mourned during the day as if
ne naa lost nts mate, in the evening tne
cnippy came dsck and nercbed udou
the window. The sash was raised and it
new in and rested upon the caire. and
seemed gratified. This was repeated two
orttiree flays, the "chippy" going each
morning and returning in the evening.
One day it went awav and did not come
back. The canary drooped, and tbe next
day fell dead from his perch in the win
dow. That tueht the "chiPDv" returned.
and during the evening it mourned over
its dead companion, in tbe morning it
clung to the cage until it was turned out.
fort few days me empty cage was bung
in the window, and on each succceeding
evening the "chloDv" returned and
chirped as if it was grief stricken. One
day it brought a worm in its bill, drooped
it in its cage, new away, and came back no
more. y. IjOum lmes.
Home 'Politeness.
He who is scrupulouslv polite and re-
spectiui to an women in public, but habit
ually saves coarse manners and vulgar
language for his own wife and daughters,
is no gentleman. He is only an im poster.
The young man who oils his hair, outs
sweet odors upon his pocket handkerchief,
ana oows witn cnarming elegance to Miss
Arabella Spriggins and her lady friend,
and goes borne to sneer at bis mother,
aispoey ner wisnes, ana treat tier with
familiar discourtesy, is a pinchbeck imita
tion oniy or a gentleman. Uenuine good
manners and genteel breeding should be
gin at home. As a rule, the men in the
community wbo are the most trusted are
the best men at home. When a man
opens his front gate only to meet his
wife's face radiant with pleasure, and
bears the shout from eager children,
"Papa is coming," Jt is safe, as a rule, to
lend that man money. He is honest, and
win repay it it be an. Selected.

half of every loaf eaten in Encland is
