Nsw Yoek, Nov. 8. A large meeting wag
held last night under auspices of the Tam
many general committee. Many of the party
leaden were present and made speeches.
Henry Clinton presided. Resolutions en
norsing Kelly and expressing unshaken con
fidence in his integrity and ability as a party
leader, denying that he had ever exercised or
attempted to exercise one-man power, and
.expressing a determination to follow the ban
ner of Kelly and Tammany in future. Fer
nando Wood in a speech of considerable
length, predicted that the Democrats of New
York would soon regret having elected a
combination ticket. 8. 8. Cox followed in a
half hours' speech, during which he labored
hard to prove that if Tammany was a corpse
it was, after all, a very lively kind of a
corpse, and would make a lively wake for
the undertakers who came to bury it. He
said that both t houses would be Democratic
and predicted the immediate downfall of the
Boss Kelly reviewed his own career in his
own favor, and the crowd dispersed with a
doubtful cross between a growl and a cheer

New York. Nov. 8. A cablegram to the
Herald from Lisbon says: Gen. Grant dined
with King Luis the first. All members of
the royal ministry were present. The impe
rial palace was gayly trimmed with flags and
the day was one of general festival through
out the city. King Luis' reception of the
ex-President of the United States, was very
cordial. His Majesty offered the General
the highest decorations of honor known to
the kingdom. General Grant thanked the
king but said he was compelled to decline
honors, as the law of the United States made
it impossible for an officer of the army to
wear foreign decorations, and, although not
now in office, he preferrd to respect the law.
He thanked his majesty heartily for the
honor intended. King Luis then offered
him a copy of his translation of Hamlet into
the Portuguese language, which Gen. Grant
accepted with thanks.
New Tobk, Not. 8. Johnson's jewelry
store, in Eighth avenue, was robbed last
night of two thousand dollars' worth of
clocks and watches, in the presence of a
large number of passers by. Shortly after
six o'clock two men entered the store. One
closed the door, and the other, with a revol
ver, kept in their places Mr. Johnson, the
proprietor, his clerk, a customer and two
others, and then smashed the large plate
windows and packed in two bags the stock
exposed. While they were thus occupied
two others, ; armed with pistols, ordered
passers by to move on. The property hav
ing been sacked, the thieves, still protected
by their companions, moved quickly to a
butcher's cart in waiting at the corner and
drove rapidly away. The two who had kept
possession of the store, receiving a precon
certed signal, turned on the throng and fired
pistols in the air. A stampede of the peo
ple followed ana the uueves escaped.
: Reward Offered.
Nsw Tobk, Nov. 8. Mrs. A. T. Stewart
has offered a reward of $25,000 for the re
covery of the body of her late husdand, stolen

Washington, Nov. 8. The annual report
of Gen. Thomas J. Brady, second assistant
postmaster general, for the fiscal year ended
June 30, 1878, has been prepared for the

of railroad, steamboat and star routes over
the previous year was 683 in the aggregate;

Cabinet Meeting-. :
Washington, Nov. 9. The Cabinet held a
meeting to discuss the manner of resumption.
The Cabinet is a unit upon the question of
resuming specie payment next January, and
are equally a unit in being undecided as to
the means for setting about this important
step. Point most raised and least settled in
discussion was the use whieh should be made
of silver coin in the treasury. If it was paid
out last it was feared there would De a run
on gold, in the anxiety of greenback holders
to receive payments in the valuable metal; if
it should be at the start rapid expulsion, as
far as anv opinion was Wrought to light. The
Cabinet advised making no formal recom
mendation to Congress, and announcing no
plan in the secretary's report but extending
the option of payment in either gold or sil
ver, to those presenting greenbacks for re
. Important Conference.
The Herald's Washington special says
that an important conference of New York
bankers with Secretary Sherman will be held
at the treasury to-morrow morning, at wmcn
time a special appointment nas been nxea.
The party here include George S. Coe, and
manager of toe Mew lork clearing nouse,
Mr. Camp. The discussion will be a mutual
advantage to all parties. It is believed that
the Secretary is desirous of getting the views
of such leading financiers as are included in
the delegation in order to assist him in the
preparation of his annual report to Congress;
and the bankers are desirous, on the other
hand, of having him recommend a number of
measures to Congress for the amelioration of
business, chief among them being the reduc
tion or abolishment of government tax on

.' .: r J :. :A Sew Scheme.
. Washington, Not, 9. The commissioners
of the District of Columbia in their forth
coming report will propose a new plan for
the funding of the outstanding indebtedness
of the District, which contemplates a loan
by United States of 50 year 4 per cent, bonds
for that purpose. The total debt proposed
to fond in United States 4 per cent, bonds
is $21,683,650, including $13,743,150 of 3-65
bonds, which is the total amount of them
outstanding. The commissioners are confi
dent that by funding the debt as proposed
there will be a saving of the principal to be
paid at maturity amounting to $1,453,372,
and in payment of the annual interest a sav
ing of $176,947, This saving of interest
yearly invested in four per cent bonds' at par
would pay off the entire indebtedness in 44
Fire at Cape May. -
Cape Mat, Nov. 10. The fire was sub
dued at 6 P. M. The entire burned district
covers an area of about 40 acres, and is
bounded by Congress street on the west, by
Washington street on the north. Ocean street
on the east and Beach on the south. The
total loss is estimated at about $400,000,
of which more than one half is covered by
insurance. The fire burned stubbornly from
7 in the morning until between 5 and 6 P.M.
The water supply was good and furnished
by artesian wells. No lives lost and no one
seriously injured. To-night steam engines
played on the ruins. In 1869 almost the
same section was swept by a fire scarcely
less destructi7e than that of to-day.
Number of Cases.
Nrw Orleans, Nov. 10. Physicians have
reported 15,000 cases of yellow fever treated
by them during the epidemic, and not here
tofore reported. Maj. H. W. Branham, of
the Howard Association, who is now assist
ing in making a report of the work of the
Howards during the epidemic .of 1878, ex
presses the opinion that there have been,
during the past four moths, 40,000 cases of
fever in New Orleans and vicinity. The
Howard Association physiciansdid not re
port to the board of health.
Nrw York, Nov. 10. The famous colt,
Duke of Magenta, left for England in the
steamship Egypt this afternoon, in charge of
W. Brown, Pierre Lorrilard's trainer. With
Mr. Brown and the Duke of Magenta were

Fisher and Barrett, and Midgely, trainer for
Bowie, of Maryland.
Agnes as a Letter Writer.
Indianapolis, Nov. 10. The Journal to
morrow will publish a caustic letter from
Mrs, Agnes D. Jenks to Senator Hill, of
Georgia, replying to his recent strictures on
her course. She denies that she has con
fessed her guilt or that she has any to con
fess. She is not in the treasury department,
but in New Orleans. She says she has noth
ing to regret in her connection with Louis
iana politics, and reminds Senator Hill that
he holds a seat in the Senate by the gener
osity and sufferance of the government.

Nrw Yoek, Nov. 11. The Tribune prints
an abstract of the report of the auditor on
railroad accounts. The Central Pacific has
not complied with the law, and certificates
as to its neglect so to do have been submitted,
and will be hereafter submitted from time to
time to the Secretary for proceedings to be
instituted for such neglect, There are no
reports furnished to the auditor's office un
der the law. The question arises in regard
to the company as to the right they may or
not have to lease hundreds of miles of another
road in which their own stockholders are the
principal owners, and pay millions of dol
lars for the privilege of operating the Bame.
In regard for transportation, section 18 of
the act of 1862 seems to prevent any inter
ference unless Congress shall see fit to order
an inquiry and investigation with, tne requi
site power to send for papers and persons.
The Latest Calculation.
The Tribune's latest Congressional returns
show 134 Republicans, 148 Democrats and
11 Greenbackers, and adds in the table Cali
fornia, which elects on the 4th of next Sep
tember, and counted as the delegation now
stands, two Republicans and two Democrats.
The Republicans expect to regain the third
district, which was taken from them by the
Democratic House. This done the Demo
cratic majority over all in the next Congress
would be reduced to one.
Recovery of St ewarfa Body.
It was stated at police headquarters last
night that Stewart's body had been found
and was in the possession of Judge Hilton.
The latter would not make any of the facts
public, but from his actions there is no
doubt that the remains have been secured. ,
Annual Report of the Hints.
Washington, Nov. 11. The annual report

Under the head, of silver purchases and metal
production, Linderman says; "Purchases
of bullion for fractional coinage were made
from time to time during the year, until Feb
ruary 28, 1878, and amounted to 5,984,683.
64 fine ounces, at a cost of $7,114,548.69;
the average has been 118,879 cents per ounce
fine. London rate for silver bullion during
this period averaged 65,3107 pence per ounce,
British Standard, equivalent to 110,066 eta.
per ounce fine. Purchasing silver dollar
coinages was commenced in March and con
tinued from time to time as advantageous
offers of the same were made, or as the mints
required additional bullion for current work.
The total amount of purchases for dollar
coinage up to. Sept. 30th, was 17,925,904
fine ounces at a cost to the Government of
$21,057,369,15 ht an average cost Of 117.45
cents per ounce fine, at the coining rate for
standard silver dollars 116 4-11 per standard
ounce above the amount purchased will pro
duce $24,176,665,19. The total product
of gold and silver for the year $47,226,107
gold and $467,226,314 silver. I' Of the silver
dollar he says: "At the date of the passage
of the act authorizing the coinage of the dol
lor of 412 X grains the price of a bar of silver
was about 55 pence per ounce, British Stand
ard; from that date (Feb, 28th last), the
price gradually deolined until it reached
49 pence on" the 17 of October, the price
at the date of this report is SOpence.
From the foregoing it will be seen that the
expectation entertained by many J that
the remonitation of the silver dollar would
be followed by an appreciation in value of
silver has not yet been realized." Linder
man thinks the United States ought to be
very cautious in its silver policy.

E. A. Burke, the newly elected State treas

amounting to $1,000,000. On this condition he

test. The Democratic municipal ticket was

Patrick and J. D. Houston. The citizen's as
sociation held a meeting to-day -and sent a
committee to Governor Nichols to lay before
him an abstract of frauds which have been
penetrated at the recent election. Their
summary of testimony is extremely full, and
so overwhelming in fact that the Governor
asked two of the committee to ascertain
whether there is anything in the law author
izing him to nulify the election and order a
new one. The other candidate for the Federal
Senate is Duncan F. Kenner, who will proba
ably be elected, provided it is thought that

A Change of Policy.
Chicago, Nov. 12. The Tribune's Wash
ington special says: Ex-Senator Chandler had
a friendly interview with the President to-day,
and insisted in a thorough organization for the
campaign of 1S80. He believed the Republi
can party to be stronger than ever. Recent
elections have convinced the administration of
the general inefficiency of Federal officers in
the South. Instructions from the department
of justice have been disobeyed ' and the laws
not faithfully executed. In view of this fact,
there will be radical changes in Federal offices

Brown vs. Bailer vs. Kearney;
New Yoek, Nov. 12. Carl Browne has
made a statement to the effect that Kearney
sold out Butler and made incendiary speeches
for the purpose of driving the more respect
able laboring men from supporting him.
In an interview with a reporter for a morn
ing paper, Butler is reported as saying: "If
Kearney was a traitor he could have had but
one cause for treachery. No man is a rascal
for mere love of rascality and without hope
of reward. Of course, I do not know what
particular scoundrel hired him if he was
hired, but I know a set who were cap
able of doing it, and did it, if it
was done at all. His speeches did me more
harm than good. Workingmen whom he
might have influenced were with me already
and there was a large class who were dis
gusted with and alarmed by him. I waa in
no manner or shape responsible for him or
his utterances. I never asked him to make
a speech or to refrain from making one, nor
am I aware of any one doing so for me.
He never got any money from me, and never
approached me for any. The Herald's Bos
ton reporter interviewed Kearney, and he
said Brown's story was all a damned lie, He
continued, "I don't believe the lying Asso
ciated Press. These slimy imps will spread
any report to sell papars.
Since the result of the elections become
known the demand for government securities
of all classes has greatly increased. The
First National Bank alone has done business
in U. S. bonds amounting to over nine mil
lions of dollars since Wednesday noon,
Savings banks and insurance companies be
ing the largest purchasers. Thus, soon the
beneficial results of the defeat of the Green
back movement becomes apparent.
The Snn Throws Jonah Tilden to the
New wobk, Nov. 12. The Sun mis morn
ing throws Tilden overboard, saying that he
cannot again be the candidate of any party.
It further says "while we should be ashamed
to doubt Tilden's personal integrity, we are
yet constrained to say it is proved and ad
mitted through publication of the cipher tel
egrams that during his presidential campaign
he, suffered a clique of politically immoral
people to surround him to act for him and
compromise him. ;
The Fishing ttuestlon.
Washtsoton, Nov. 12. Lord Salisbury's
reply to Secretary Bvarts' note on the Can
adian fishing question was received yester
day by Coble. That part of the reply refers
ring to the outrages on American fishermen
on the coast of Newfoundland last January
is conciliatory in tone and satisfactory to
our government. It assures the Secretary
that His Majesty's Government will carry out
the provisions of the treaty of Washington in
good faith, extend to American fishermen all
the rights and privileges accorded by the
treaty. It is now believed in diplomatic cir
cles here that the award will be promptly

convince Minister Layard that the best mode
of fighting Afghanistan would be to engage
Russia in Europe. The immediate entour
age however, is pacific. Several ministers,
and especially the military party, favor the
definitive cession of a portion of Bosnia to
Austria, so as to secure her, neutrality in
view of future contingencies.

London, Nov. 9. A Paris correspondent
says that according to latest news Count
Shouvaloff only goes to London to present
his letters of recall. The correspondent re
gards the recall of Count Shouvaloff as prelim
inary to supplanting .Prince Oortschakoo,
and adds that a trustworthy informant con
siders that Bismarck is doing his ntmost to
bring about the event. Shouvaloff s acces
sion to power would be the signal for a policy
on the part of Russia and Germany, at a
common reactionary end. Shouvaloff' s for
eign policy would not be pacific, but rather

which arrived Wednesday, after a passage of
190 days from New York, has been arrested
and held in 2,00Q bail to answer before the
United States Grand Jury on charges pre
ferred by the crew. Written charges tell a
fearful tale of hardships and distress occa
sioned mainly by lack of proper food and the
refusal of the captain, notwithstanding the
unusual length of the passage, to put in any
where for supplies! Two of the crew died of
scurvy, the flesh fairly rotting from their
bones. Three others, on arrival here, were
taken to the U. S. marine hospital, so wasted
by disease as to bej unable to walk. Others
were given quarters in jaiL pending trial of
the charges. According to the statement of
the crew, the provisions were of inferior
quality, more particularly in the matter of
anti-scorbutics, but were also so mixerably
short in quantity that the men were sulvjected
to the pangs of hunger, while at the same
time, for a greet portion of the passage were
made to do double duty.

How the King of the TJtes ilTes.
Considerable interest has of late been
aroused in the TJte Indians in Colorado,
and a few facta about" their head Chief,
Ouiay, who is an exceptional Indian,
and his manner of life will be interest
ing. Ouray has had built for him at
his place, about ten miles from the Los
Pinos agency, on the TJn'compahgre
river, by the government, an adobe
house, thirty by forty, hnished in good
style, 'with American furniture and car
pets. He has a farm of 300 acres in

work is done by Indians and Mexican
retainers. iHis wife takes an active
interest in the farm work and does her
full share of the outdoor labor, lie has
a herd of 200 horses and mules, some of
them being very fine animals; in addi

His buildings are quite extensive, con
sisting of a large store house, four dwell--ings,
stables, corrals, granaries, eta He
his a fine family carriage, one of the
best that could be purchased, a present
from Governor Ed. MeCook, which,
with a stylish team and Mexican driver,
makes a conspicuous turn-out. The
farm operations and business enterprises
of Ouray have been very successful, and
prove him to be a shrewd, competent
business man. It is the opinion of those
who know anything about him, that he
desires to adopt entirely the habits and
life of the whites, and cut loose from In
dian customs, but the innate love of
power and prominence makes him cling
to his leadership of chieftainship with a
tenacious grasp. During the council it
was observed by General Hatch that
Ouray was a born leader, and exhibited
diplomatic talents of a high order in
managing his unruly subjects and deal
ing with every point and question ad
vanced by the commissioners. His age
is about 45, and he has but one wife and
The Skirmishing Foud.
"Varnius," Baid Lentulus one day just
before the praetor marched against Spar
tacus, "Varnius, doeB it ever occur to
you that these little signs in the city
parks over the civilized world, 'keep off
the grass,' are instigated by the British
influence 1" v .. ; : 1 ;
The prcetor couldn't see why British
influence should trouble itself to pre
serve the-grass in a United States park,
and he said so. U
"Well," said the Consul, "it is so. It
is only another exhibition of English
hatred against the Fenians, to which
other powers are induced to lend their
influence. You can see no connection
between these signs and7 the Fenians t"
"None," replied Varnius, "unless the
signs are like the Fenians, because no
body pays any attention to them." f
"Not exactly that," respondit the Con
sel, cum some asperity, "although that
isn't so bad."
Varnius respondit non, sed intimated,
by shaking his caput, ut he would give
it up. 1
"Well," said the Consul, with a pity
ing look at his comrade, "it is because
these things are put up to keep people
from wearing off the green.' "
It was a long time before Varnius
made any reply, when he finally said
he hoped, if the Consnl ever said any
thing like that again, Spartacus might
give him the awf idlest Tbrasian a Ro
man ever got And then he called out
the troops and went over to Vesuvius,
and got one himself just to see what it
is was like.
