Chapman, a resident of Ballston has for some time past beeu circulating for signatures a petition addressed to congress praying that body to issue to the people the sum of one thousand million dollars in greenbacks. Many persons signed the petition to humor Mr. Chap man’s whim in the hope that he would then abandon the matter, re alizing that bis mind was affected, but not so. Last Sunday he left Ballston and up to Tuesday night he had not returned. The supposition is that the old gentleman has started for Washington to personally lay his claim before congress. Mr. Chap man is aged about 60 years aud bears a good reputation, and hereto fore has not been considered unsound in mind. He is a widower and has a married son and daughter. His sud den aberration of ming is regretted by all of bis acquaintances.
