Mrs. Killoren uivo you about tho run-
oral f Answer Sho told mo that sho
had sent for mo to make arrangements
for the funeral, that sho could not de
pend on any of her own family to
carry them out alter tier aeain ; ano
wauled it arranged ana curricu 0111
accordinif to Iter own wishes: that
she was Icnvitiir etioti iili behind for
hor relatives. iShe said "you bur
ied my son and husband and 1 am not
bit afruid but what you will carry
out my own wishes." Sho then told
mo to gi Iter a sqnnro built coflin
with plenty of room in it laughter,
nut Ira me on top, ano. upon una
frame a round lid to be put on Willi
hinges and locks; in this round lid
was to come an oval French pinto
glass, and ovor this glass another
round lid to cover it, anu also 10 tic
fitted in with locks and hinges, I told
her this French pinto glass wits a
thing impoaitihlo, 1 thought, to bo got
rendy, or if 1 could get it ready the
whelo thing would bo ol no uoiicih.
I asked her if she would have it flat ;
sho said "no," she w an led this alTmr
all round, no mntter what it cost or
what limo It took ; sho would not be
buried in anything olao. Luuhlur.
Sho said also that if sho died before
this coffin was ready they would have
to keep her until it wa ready, and iho
expression sho used was to havo it
trimmed in splfiiilnl style, insido, ann
have such a caftin got up as wits never
seen in New York belore, and proba
bly never would be again ; and witness
added "Ciod knows I think sho got
it." fireat luuglitcr. Sho said
many times to sparo no expense
whaloverj Tsial every cent sno nau
mado w-as her own. 1 made tho re
mark thai her children would oppose
tho idea. Sho said they daro not do
it. "What right have they to op
pose," sho said, "they aro simply to
seo that my wishes aro carried out ;
go to work and carry them out."
hho was to bo put into tho leadpn
casket, and thai was to bo soldered
In regard to hor funeral rone, sho told
mo thut sho had four ladies who camo
op lliero to seo hor and talk wilh her
about her idea of a habit, and that they
failed to understand her, they wore
such stitnid thincs. Sho asked me if
I could get snmo womop to rnuko this
tabit according to her idea. 1 said
could ; that I know a ludy in this
oily that was comnulont to take any
order. She asked mo to get Iter.
Tlio lady camo and was present at the
giving of a part of these orders.

(ho risk of their hreitkinir it. I had
directions to wait till one was mado if
it took A month. Tho ooffin and arias.-,
woro under way, and the radios' robe
before she died.
Annie Mulligan testified that she
was sent by her friend Mrs. Killeron
to Mr. Therry to tell him to come
immediately, so that sho could give
instructions as to hor buriul, as bur
children would not do it after her
death; sho told Mr. Therry that it
was no mutter how long il took ; he
was to keep her until ho was ready,
and to spare no expense; she also
said sho was sorry she had not buried,
her bushund differently ; she told him
to buy bettor material for trimming
tho houso than was used at hor hus
band's funeral, as it would bo of some
uso to mo aftorwurds; this wag two
weeks before hor douth.
Amelia Brondbent testified that she
was employed by Mr. Therry to make
tho roho. She went to tho house of
Mrs. Killoren about threo weeks be
foro her death.
Tho order was peculiar and (he
witness did not want to uudcrtuko it.'
Mrs. Killoren said if witness would
only make it sho did not cure what it
cost. Witness told her sho could not
mako it in a week. Mrs. Killoren
said "you will have plenty of time for
1 might live three or lour weeks yet.
You are tho first one that would un
dertake to inuku it." Tho robe was
mado of brown cloth trimmed with
grog grain Hint; airs. Killoren lur-
ninhcd samples ol the cloth and (old
witness to got It. Slio said to Mr.
Thcrrv, "Now John, I know you will
do it right; just according to my in
structions." Sho betrayed u deal of
anxiety. She wauled mo, the witness
said, to bring tho robo up and let her
seo it. 1 took it tin tiio followinir
Monday and told her 1 should want
moro silk. Shu liked what I had done
and said il was just what she wanted.
Augustus Marlin, a wholesulu un
dertaker, testified that ho tnmiuf'ac
tured tlio casket, which was an odd
one. Never made one before orsinco
like it. In tho first plueo it was two
feet two inches wide, rather a small
woman, and about six feet four inches
long. It was an expensive one, more
so than usual. The cost of tho glass
plato was e 125, and witness did not
think thero was moro percent ago ol
profit in tho other items of the bill
than there was in that. With refer,
enca to length of colli na, witness said
thut he had sent them to (ioorgiu seven
feet six inches long; they ran from
twenty inches to six feet Hur inches,
two inches opart all the way up; tho
width is from nino to lliirly inches ;
thought lio got $'IK) for t lie collln, nnd
did not think $150 would bo much of
a profit. Tho witness was unwilling
to tell the profits of bis business.
Tho defendants relied on the testi
mony of undertakers to show that tin
charges woro unreasonable. Judgo
Sutherland, in his charge to the jury,
said ho thought tho plaintiff was en
titled to a verdict, and they, without
leaving their scuts, gave tho pluintill'
liia full claim, with interest, amount
ing in all to l,10i 70,
Be a Man. Foolish spending is tho

InmuktrT- Man must havo occupa

which overcomes our natural sloth is
a blessing. Tho wholo world does

Our Bagged Bauk-NoteB.
Tho national-bank ring is deter
mined to make itself odious. From all
pa it of the country come complaints
ol llio bad condition of tho national
hank-notes. They aro filthy, rugged,
illegible, pestiferous and pestilential.
Tho coin plaints had become so general
that evon Congress could not disro
gard them. Genoral tiurfield, chair
man of tbo IIouso Cominittco on Cur
rency and Banking, the other day ro-
ported a bill providing for the issue of
ucslt notes. General Garfield, though
Radical, ia esteemed as a man of
j honor; but he and his committoo are
uiirrgmner 100 mucn under the influ
ence of tho nntinunl hanking interest,
and the bill reported provided that
tho new notes should be issuod by the
Treasury, at the public expense, an in
jitslico so gross and flagrant thut It is
astonishing how. a man of'Gurfiold's
reputation and intelligence could be
found willing; to father it. Tho mo
ment tho bill was offured, Mr. IIol
iniin, the Democratio Representative
of tho ScvOid District of Indiana,
moved what Iho tools of tho bank ring
call "a very obnoxious amendment,"
providing that tho banks should pay
tho expenso of issuing the now notes,
an amendment ao just that General
Garfield could not refuse to accept it,
and that many Republicans, not di
rectly under the influence of the bank
ring, joined the solid Democratic
phalanx in ils favor. Tho amend
ment was carried by a liberal majori
ty. But when tho voto on the bill
itself was token, on a motion by Mr.
Campbell, of Ohio, tho Democratic
successor of Schcnclc, tho bill wns
ordered laid on tho tuble by a very
light voto, and this much needed
measure again postponed.
it may not bo so readily apparent
why the banks should opposo tho issue
of now notes, evon al their own cx
pcuso. Tho cost is not so grout but
that it would bo amply compensated
for by the convenience of the banks
themselves. The true reason of thoir
objection (o (ho new notes is that tho
old notes are constantly wearing out,
aro destroyed and lost. It requires
only one moment's thought to recog
nize the fact that a new, clean, crisp
white nolo is not half so easily losi
and destroyed as an old, dark, limp,
and soft one ; and, of course, all notes
so lost and destroyed aro a direct gain
to tho banks, as it is not called upon
lo redeem them. Now, the people of
tho United Slates pay (ho national
banks annually about twenty millions
of dollars for Iho service which lliey
aro supposed (o render tbe public in
furnishing It, Willi three hundred mil
lions of bank nolo, which (he public
might havo entirely frco of cost, if il
but chooso lo say tho word. Yet
when (be people complain (hat instead
of a decent curionty, for which ihey
pay a fabulous price.'lhey are furnish
ed with indecent rugs, wo uru coolly
told that we may, perhaps havo new
currency if wo, the people, chooso to
pay for it ; (hat we cerluinly shall nol
have it unless nu do, but that oven if
wo chooso to pay for it, il is by no
means certain that our muslurs of the
nntii'iial bank ring will allow us to
have it, becauso they mako in tho long
run a I i LI lo additional purcentiigo over
and ubovo the twenty millions, by
compelling tho peoplo lo uso the dis
gusting, filthy rags which these im
pudent monopolists tender us as a su
perabundant return for thoir twenty
million subsidy. Verily, verily, the
the worst onomy of tho national banks
could not hurl thotn so much in tho
fiublio esteem us their own unscrupu
ous rapacity docs every day. A. 1'.
Pcttino a Fi.nk Point trox it
During the cross examination of a
witness, ho was asked where his
father wits; to which question, with
a melancholy uir, ho responded :
Dead, sir dropficd off very suddenly,

as to tbo quantify of intoxicating

In Italy every man drinks wine,
und somo drink foreign wines, brandy,
rum and beer; but intemperance is
not u prominent evil. Consul Rose, of
Ancona," iialy, says that crimo com
mitted under tho influenco of liquor is
unknown thero. Mr. Tuckennan, of
Athens, (ireoeo, suys that in that city,
containing 50,U0d inhabitants, only
-12 deaths had been occasioned in ten
years by strong drink. Intemperance
is very raro in Groeeo. In Switzer
land Ihey drink beer and wine, but no
trouble urises from it. Tho finest
men coino from tho wine cantons.
The peasants drink schnapps nnd po
tato brandy, and llicso cause trouble,
especially when (ho poor do not gel
enough food. Mr. Bancroft stales
that the health nnd prospciily of ibe
people nro not injured by beer and
schnapps. At Bremen nine mid beer
aro used in unlimited quantities by ull
classes without ovil resulls; but at
Cologne 70 per cenf. of tho crimo is
Traced to hard drinking, and at Tsicr
tho M criinir ols in tbe prison were ull
hard drinkers. In Ireland whi -key,
wino ami beer are lately consumed.
Tho popular drink is whiskey, and al
most ull tbo crime of iho country is
charged upon il. In lHliS, "li.OUL1 per

crimo in Great Britain springs from
drink. In tbo Netherlands, where
largo quantities of schnapps and gin
are consumed, flllecn-sixtecnths of the
crimo is traced to theso fiery liquids.
At Odossu, Sunt hern Russia, wino,
brandy, beer and whisky are patron
ized ; tho latter is sold at fivo cents a
gill, and il occasions about threo
fourths of the crimo. At Cadiz lire
penplo drink sherry wine, Burgundy
and aguardiente (diluted nl'.'ohol,) but
according to Ibe report no oiimcs aro
attributed to this cause. Den in ark
presents soiuo curious features. Thero,
tho uggrcgato consuinplion of intoxi

C,70.',0lltl gallons of foreign und do

Tho Change in Grant 'g Character.
It bus recently occurred to os to bfr
inquired of separately by two gentle
men who aro freiuda of JVresidund
Grant, w hether tvu cannot desist from
allutking him. As iho subject is uuq
of n public nature, wo can only give t
public answer. -
During tho war wo utootl by God,.
Grunt, from first lo last. It was our
fort u no lo render him such (crvloe as
perhaps il happened to no other man
to be ablo to render. In tho first buff
of lrOid, when ho was digging canals
opposite Vicksburg, we saved bin,
from being relioved from tho command
of tho Artnv of tbo TennoHsetl uutj
,-ei.t hack to Galena to remain in ob
scurity for the rest of his natural life.
We were nleo afterward able to con.
tribute lo Iho success of the movement
which promoted Lim to the chief coir),
niand of ull our armies
Put immediately ufler his olovatlon
to tbo Presidency, Gen. Grant began
lo manifest a change, almost incredi.
hie, which sudden und enormous pros
perity, unbounded flattery, and a child
ish udiniralion of wer.llh and wealthy
men, had wrought in his character
When wo knew bim in tho war he
wus exceedingly modest, sensible, un
pretending, and ready lo take ad
vice from those in w hom ho bad reason,
to confide. His first acts on taking
office t?avn a j ud'i shock to this im-pi-osaion
; but still we stuck by bim,
refusing to beliovo the evidence be
foro our own eyes. However, we be
gun to havo foiioua misgivings. Bus
by wont on appointing men to tbo
highest offices who wero unfit and un.
deserving, for no oilier reason than
that they had givon him presents, and
qunrtcring upon tho public treasury,
without regard to decency, his own
relations and those of his wife to iho
remotest degree of affinity. Ho also
engaged in the fraud ot appointing
Mr. Botio Secretary of the Navy un
der a (also prelonco, so that Admiral
Porter might buvt) control of naval
affairs ; bo was enticed by Abel Kath,
bono Corbin to support a conspiracy
to put up l lie price of gold, out of
which ?'.'."i,0t'lj was paid lo Mrs. Grant,
which has never been returned nop
accounted for; ho appointed onu Ford
to tbo valuable oflico of Collector of
St. Louis, apparently wiihont reason,
until it turned out thut during the
war Ford hud been u partner with
Mrs. Grant in a tradu storo at Vicks
burg ; and bo ullowod Jay Gould to
pay 81,000 upon bis (Gruot'sl sub
scription to tho Rawlins fund, und
never repaid it, even after ho bad
quarrelled wdth Gould. We wero thus
obliged relticbuitly, but not equivocally
to t a lie tho position of a trunk and
unreserved opponent of his udinini
tratiou and cxposcr of bis misuonducl.
Now, from personal feeling, wo
would rather havo been Grunt's up
porler tbau his nntagonisl. We ex
perience, after ull, a curtain inexprua
sible regret that he bus so demeaned
himself, ufler the services which by
tbo aid of John A. Rawlins bo rendered
during the war. But as we parted
from Grunt on public grounds, we can
answer tbo request lo favor him only
upon tho same grounds. Ho niusV en
tirely chnngu his policy and course of
action. Il bo will do so, we shall cor
dially approve of such a change.
But ii9 Ibis is rather general, let us
sluto mrro piU-tkiibirlv whnl it io that
wo require President Grant to do.
I. Let bim pay back to Jay Gould
the thousand dollars which Gould paid
on his subscription to the Rawlins
fund. No President should allow tho
blot of false pretences lo remain tipoq

II. Let him tli mhs the military at

Humorous brothers in law, cousins, un
cles, aunts, and ncur relations whom,
ho has appointed to places of emolu
ment nnd ui.lhorily, without regard
to their personal, political, or business
qualifications; and let him rigorously
uhserve tho principlo laid down by
Thomas Jefferson, thut the family r
luiioiis nf tho President nro not lo be
appointed to office.
IV. Let hint return to (ho donor or

IX. Letbint introduce common sins

X. Let him send ndrift tho ring (if
