A Marderer Is Allowed Twenty Days to
Settle his Affairs Appears Promptly and
Meets his Doom.
A gentlemen of Jonesbnrg, Ma, recently returned
from Texas, relates an extraordinary occurrence
which took place a short time since In the Indian
Nation. A Choctaw Indian, having committed a
wilful murder, was arrested, tried, and sentenced
to be shot to death. He asked for twenty days In
which to prepare and visit his friends, giving bis
word of honor as a "brave" to return at the ap
pointed time, and was allowed to go forth without a
guard or bail.
At the expiration of the twenty days, according to
appointment, the hour for the execution arrived and
the Indian, true to his word, at the very hour and
minute galloped np to the place where the sentence
was to be carried out, In company with three of his
sisters and three brothers, all appearing as cheerful
as though they had come to a dance or a frolic. The
coffin was then brought on the ground, but Borne one
remarked that It was too small, upon which one of
the doomed Indian's brothers told him to He down
In it and measure, which he cheerfully did, and
laughingly said, "It flta all right." The erowd mean
while appeared to be In the most cheerful
spirits, and cracked jokes and laughed. At last,
when all was ready, the doomed man was ordered
to sit on the ground. A handkerchief was then
placed over his eyes by his sister. While the sheriff
held one hand, one of the condemned Indian's bro
thers held the other on each side of him. The
deputy sheriff then stood in an old house, about ten
steps in front of the condemned, with a rifle. From
some cause the rifle went off accidentally, the bul
let passing up through the roof of the house.
The Indian, believing he was shot,
drew himself np and shuddered, but
did not speak or move from the spot A
black mark was then made over the Indian's heart,
with spittle and powder, by his brother, while the
deputy sheriff reloaded his rifle, and at a signal he
took steady aim, fired, and pierced the centre of the
mark. The Indian, with a few struggles, fell back
dead, with the brother and the sheriff still holding
his hands. Ho one seemed to be in the least affected
except the doomed Indian's mother, who shed tears,
but was told to "shut np" by her son, that all was
fatal Accident at Morrlstown, N.J.
The Newark Advertiser of last evening says:
Yesterday afternoon the contractors for the plac

Morrlstown Green, hoisted a derrick of some 85 feet
in height for the purpose of raising the heavier tim
bers lor me liming oi me massive granite stones,

About 8 P. M., after the contractor had left the

President Grant oa the Treaty of Wash
New York, June 8. A Herald reporter, who
interviewed President Grant yesterday, reports
him as eaylnp;: The treaty was fully and ably
discussed, and in my Judgment is the best set
tlement possible of outstanding differences be
tween the United States and Great Britain.
Every article of the treaty was submitted to me
after it was adopted by the commission, and
approved by me, and each article was in the
same way submitted to the British Cabinet
and approved by the Ministers of the Crown at
once. The English commissioners spent a great
deal of money in telegraphing the sections of
the treaty, and the Queen of England pledges
her signature beforehand. I therefore regard the
treaty as
Practically Ratified.
There will be pecuniary considerations, of
coarse, and measures will have to be adopted on
both sides to carry out the provisions of the
treaty. Our House of Representatives will, I
feel certain, act patriotically and wisely in the
matter. The treaty must be ratified and made a
law of both nations. It is necessary, and the
necessity is immediate. As far as we are con
cerned, we would
Like to Have Better Terms, '
but there were two parties to the bargain. If I
had it all my own way I think I should male it
more favorable to us. (A smile.) The point
arrived at was not merely a pecuniary satisfac
tion for. our losses by the Alabama and other
cruisers lrom British ports, but the settlement
of an irritating and disturbing question likely
at any day to bring the two nations into armed
conflict. My aim was by this treaty to secure
peace through Justice, and I believe I have suc
No Apprehension Need Be Felt
as to the course of the British people. I would
regard it as an act of bad faith on their part to
reject the treaty after its almost unanimous ac
ceptance by our Senate. The English mnst
surely prefer a fair settlement of our differences
with them, for which this treaty provides,
than to
Nurse a Cause of War.
The final ratification will be a blessing to both
countries. The Canadians will be reconciled to
it by-and-by, and why shouldn't they?
The Fishery Clauses
of the treaty are as favorable to them as to us,
perhaps more so. I will be glad if they settle
the matter at once, and be done with it. The
Canadian fisheries den't amount to much to us,
while the equivalents we grant must be con
siderable to them. I don't attach much impor
tance to the pecuniary consideration, one way
or the other.
The Pith of the Thing
is the avoidance of war, It was a dangerens
question to be held open. Our fisheries were
always a trouble and an annoyance. The fisher
men of the East, who fish on the Canadian
coast, have but little respect for treaties or en
gagements. They are rough fellows, hardv and
self-reliant, and are a law unto themselves.
They insist on going where they like, and doing
what they like (of course they find opposition),
and too often, whether they are right or wrong,
they are sure to have supporters in many quar
ters. Indeed, public sympathy Is always with
our fishermen, no matter what they do. This
Backing up of our own People
under all circumstances shows a lively patriotic
spirit, but it bat Its evils. We are forced to
send men-of-war to the Canadian coasts to pro
tect these men from the consequences of their
own acts. The Eoglish must send armed ships
to watch the doings of ours, and so the rela
tions between the United States and Great
Britain, which onght and I now believe will be
of the friendliest nature, are constantly dla
turned by anticipation of strife. This fishery
affair was not the worst difficulty we had to
meet, but was very embarrassing. Now I hope
the whole affair will be settled. There were so
nany questions between the United States and
Engird demanding settlement that
War deemed the Only Alternative.
It Is well tut war has been avoided. I prefer
the treaty to war. War would be hurtful to
both nations, and protwble to neither. It might
ruin one.
Relative to the stories recently set afloat
i Cabinet Changes,
the President said there Is
Not a Word of Truth -
in these statements, whatever they are. Not a
whisper of Mr. Fish's retirement has lately
passed me or any of the Cabinet.
Mr, Fish will not Leave the Cabinet
or resign the seals of the State Department, with
my consent, while I am President, lie came
unwillingly to my call, and entered upon the
arduous duties of the Foreign Office with dim
dence. lie has discharged them well, lie has
been faithful, patriotic, and diligent, and I
should be erleved if he reiisnad. but hi won't
J resign now
As to Cuba,
there has been no discussion in the Cabinet
in reference to Cnban affairs of late to Justify
what you say Is in that paper. The policy of
Administration Is Unchanged
in regard to Cuba. We are mindful of our obli
gations to a friendly nation, while careful of
our rights. The United States will not be un
just while I am President. We will do as we
would wish to be done by. The condition of
affairs in the island of Cuba doe's not seem to
me or to Mr. Fish to demand action on our
part. Time heals more wounds than medicine
does, and patience is a very good specific.
The Murderer Foster to the Public.
New York, June 8. Foster, the condemned
murderer of Putnam, has issued an appeal to
the public, in which he says: I was tried ont
of my turn; there were others indicted for mur
der before me who have not been tried yet, be
cause there was no hue and cry after them,
while the public was resolved to have my blood
as soon as possible.
Ont of all these, I alone am selected to undergo
capital punishment, because mine was a sensa
tional case. No one can doubt the trnth of this,
and it is because this is the truth, known to
God and sworn to by me in the shadow of death,
that I make my appeal to the public. I am
doomed to die because a wicked, drunken freak
resulted in tne death of a man whom I no more
intended to harm seriously than I would my
own cnua.
The public, perhaps, because it forgets me in
the horrors of my cell, convicted of an inten
tion which never had, as my Creator, into
whose presence lam shortly to be hurled, knows
Detter even than x ao, insists on my execution.

Curious anal Valuable Discovery In Tioga
We learn from the Tloea Agitator that a curious
and valnable nnarrv fau been renentlv dlsnnvArnil nn
the farm of Mr. R. Bartlett, some two hundred rods
norm oi mainesourg. xnia may be literally des
cribed as an immense deposit of stone plank. It
covers some six acres, and the stone are found
reaoy ior use smooth, true, or unirorm thickness,
and in slabs of more than twenty feet long, by ten
leei in wiatn, ana irom one to tnree or rour
inches in thickness; each stone, however.
preserving its thickness aa nicely as If
sawed out by machinery. The stone Is very
sound In texture, even In grain, and, when first
taken from the quarry, soft enough to work easily,
inougn soon becomes me nara gray granite on
exposure to the atmosphere. It Is a fact
hard to account for that the edges
of these slabs are as true in most of the SDecl-
mens ss though worked out byjiBklllful stone-cut
ter, u ney are easily reduced to any desired size,
without breakage; and the stone Indeed appears to
be verv touen. a load or these slabs was brought
to Weilsboro last week, over a rough road, without
injury, uney were twelve reel long oy rour in
widin, ana one incn tnick ; almost as smooth as
though planed, and without warp or wind. At one
point in the quarry the slabs are In layers twenty
seven deep, large enough to square sixteen feet
and of a uniform thickness of two Inches. Orders
are being received from various places for quanti
ties of these stones, and this stone-plank mine for
such it la bids fair to be a fortune for its owner.
It is doubtful if there Is a similar quarry in the

Germany About to Annex Luxemburg,
Versailles (May 16) Cor. of the London JHmea.
There is one point of the treaty which may be
moditied, because such modification has been left
open for consideration. The first article of the
treaty concedes an enlargement of the territory
around lielfort, which is required by France for
strategic reasons. Military men are of opinion that
the rayon around that fortress - prescribed by
the preliminaries oi peace would be lnsu rue-lent
for an effectual defense te be made. The
Imperial Chancellor showed himself rather accoai
modatlng in that respect, and oirered to agree to an
extension of the limits upon condition that ade
auate territorial compensation should be given upon
another frontier point, lie proposed that a rectifi
cation should be made towards the Duchy of Lux
emburg, the annexation oi which to uermany la
determined upon. Many Deputies, who possibly are
not strategists, ask whether the strangulation of the
French territory which would result from the ac
ceptance of this proposal would net be more in
iurious to the defense of the country than the
smallnessof the area left around Belfort towards
Germany. They also ask wnetner France would
not lose on the Luxemburg frontier an Important
position, and one which while held by it would ren
der the annexation of the Duchy less advantageous
to Germany and less dogerous for the northern
provinces of France. There are doubts In many
minds. Military men will be heard, and M. Thiers.
who has a taste for and a knowledge of Bach mat

being in possession of Luxemburg and of the tern
torles which are demanded in exchange for
a small district around Belfort. would
command the Ardennes, and would
hold Its defiles, so famous in other days, thus
bringing it he seat ot government, whether 'esta

croachmeuu are still to be dreaded. On the other
haud, belfort is the key to Southern France, and it
la Important that it should not be weakened. Mili
tary niriueers will argue for Balfort, politicians for
the Ardennes. In whatever way the question Is re
garded It presents such various difficulties that it

Ttere is a lively demand for brokers' loans on
collaterals; but beyond this the market is en
tirely devoid of any feature possessing the least
inteiest to the public. Time loans are every
where In most favor, as the indications point
towards a quiet market and a very low scale of
rates for money during the next three monthB;
but there is very little demand here for this
claes of loans, and lenders appear disposed to
accept the situation until the tide turns. We
quote call loans at 84 per cent, on collaterals
and B(ff 6 per cent on paper having three or four
month to rnn.
Oold is quiet and steady at 112112, closing
at the latter.
Government bonds are dull but steady at a
slight advance.
Stocks were dnll but prices lower. Bales of
City 6s at 100 and Lehigh Gold Loan at U3.
Reading Railroad was weak, with sales at
