tended holding a meeting at the east front of
tbe capitol, but ascertaining that objection
would be raised by tbe authorities there, be
gave notice late this afternoon that the city
hall had been selected. Colored and white
men made speeches, and then Cohen, who re
lated the circumstance of his arrest, an
nounced that to-morrow a strike in tbe city
would begin, and requested all present to as
semble at 2 P. M. at the headquarters of the
Workinemen's Relief . Association, and under
his leadership to march to every point where
laboring men are at work for less than $1 50
per day, and compel them to stop.

Tne Washing-ton City Hob.
Washington, Sept 22. The various jour
nals of this city comment with sortie severity
upon the action of the authorities in allowing
Cohen to parade the streets of tbe city with a

mate that nnless the proper authorities put an

ing, and wbo is responsible for the public
property there, last night announced to

- national Bank looses.
Washington, Sept 23. The Comptroller
of the Treasury has compiled dividend re
ports of the National Banks for the six months
ending March 1, 1878, from which it appears
that the banks charged "off" losses during
that time amounting to 10,903,145. Of this
amount $1,914,757 consists of premiums on
t7. a. bonds held for circulation which depre
ciated in value below the cost price to tbe
banks. The losses cbarsed "off" by the Na
tional Banks during the year ending Septem
ber 1, 1878, were $197 19,028, and for the
year ending September 1, 1877, $19,933,587.
making a total of more than $50,500,000
losses charged "off" during the past two and
a half years. The rates of earning of Na
tional Banks to the capital and surplus for the
year of 1877 was 5 per cent, and it is es
mated that the ratio for the year 1878 will
not be greater than for tbe preceding year.

More of dasnbetta's Speech.
Paris, Sept 20. Following is the text of a
portion of Gambetta's speech at Rouen on
Wednesday against ultramonists: ;
ihe clerical question, that is to say,tho
question of relations , between anarch . and
state, keeps all other questions in suspense
nere. it is that spirit of the church which
takes refuge and gathers strength that I de
nounce. An ever increasing danger to society
run from the ultramontane spirit the spirit
of the Vatician and of the syllabus which is
nothing but abuse of ignorance with the pur
pose of enslaving it I have spoken of the
relations between church and state. I am
perfectly aware that to be correct I should
have said the relations between the churches
and state; bat from the governmental and na
tional point of view it is only uitramontaine
ism which persists in opposition to the state.
The critical spirit endeavors to filtrate into
everything into the army, into magistracy
and there is this that is peculiar; it is a'wayr
when the fortune of the country- is falling
that Jesuitism rises. Far be it from me to
wish to put shackles on liberty. I am an ob
stinate partisan of the liberty of conscience;
but ministers of religion have duties to the
State, and what we exact is fulfillment of
these duties and to apply the laws, all the
laws, and then abolish indulgences. If law
is applied order will be restored in France 1
without persecution bv simnlv continuing tra
ditions which prevailed."
