A Card from David Kirk, Esq.
To The EDITORS OF THE GAZETTE: At
the Temperance and Reform meeting in
the Twelfth ward, on Friday evening, a
new speaker was introduced, after the
Rev. Mr. Kerr and myself had spokerf,-
who denounced the Republican party
and its nominees in a manner altogether
unwarranted and totally at variance
with the ideas of every member of the
Temperance Reform Executive Com
mittee, who take issue on the Commis
sioner question alone, and that on moral
and religious grounds, and because they
consider reform to be necessary in that
The speaker referred to the notnina•
tion of John W. Kerr, Esq., for the As
sembly, and denounced it as one that was
&disgrace to the party. I was called off
by some gentlemen at the time, and did
not hear o all his remarks. Had I heard
them I would have promptly stopped
him and contradicted his assertions and
disavowed personally, and also on be
halt of the committee, any 'sympathy
with his sentiments.
As is well known, I was called upon
unexpectedly by my associates in theoil
trade the day before the Convention met
for the use of my name as a candidate for
the Assembly, which was granted. It
was used in the Convention in direct op
position to Mr. Kerr as a candidate from
the "Between the River District." Had
I known Mr. Kerr then as I do now, I
would not have permitted my name to
have been need against him. I have be
come acquainted with him since, and
find him to be a gentleman and a
scholar, and one in every way better qual
ified to represent the city of Pittsburgh
in the Assembly than myself. I rejoice
that he was successful, and instead of
pis nomination being a disgrace to the
arty I consider it an eminently proper
one, and one that s an honor to the Re
publican party. I shall do what I can as
a true Republican to elect him and all
his associates on the ticket, with the ex
ception of the candidate for Commission
er, who I do not consider to be the nomi
nee of the party, but one placed there by
trickery and fraud, in direct violation of
the rules and regulations of ths Repitb
Bean party. • DAVID RIRIE.

ter Crsswell. Visits the Gold Room and
Sates a Briet *peach.
NEW Youtc, - October 2.—The ineffi
ciency of the Gold Exchange Bank, as a
clearing house for transactions in gold,
has brought out many new plans.
The Gold Room this morning, in ex
ecutive session, passed the following
Resolved, That a committee of nine be
appointed to ascertain whether it is
practicable and desirable to organize a
clearing department as a function of the
Exchange for clearing contracts in gold
made by and between members of the
Board, and to report the plan:
It was currently reported - in the Gold
Room that Paleston, Raymond & Co. had
flailed, and that their liabilities were
heavy. The report arose from the an
nouncement of that firm, in a letter to
the President of the Stock Exchange e-
that their temporary suspension was n
cessary, and requesting the mem
bers having unsettled transactions,-
to send in a statement of their
accounts. This is to facilitate In
balancing their books, left in a terribly
tingled state by the alleged defaulting
cashier, J. W.:Sanderson, who is not at
the office today. They state that no
approximate estimate of their losses
be ascertained, but believe themes]
able to meet all, and in a short time
resume their business.
Adams, Kimball & Modr e
d, also an
nounced themselves suspe but can
not give a correct estimate of their lia
bilities. The probability -is they are
heavy. They have no unsettled transac
tions in the street, and their failure is
caused ny losses in both stocks and gold,
the principal losses being in the former.
The World states that Commodore
Vanderbilt has not sold a dollar's worth
of New York Central stock this fall, but
on the contrary, has been a constant
buyer, even through the panic, and has
assisted his friends to an amount of two
and a half millions of dollars. Re bor
rowed ten millions of , an English firm,
applying it to sustaining the Central and
Hudson. The story that be has bought
seventy thousand shares of the Lake
Shore is untrue.
Reports as to the condition of Lock
wood it Co. are unfavorable, but there
no means of ascertaining their truth
falsit until Monday, when the Directors
of the y
Lake Shore Company held a meet
ing. at which it e ms expected thefailure relations
of 'that Compy with the of
Lockwood & Co. will be made known.
Mr. Legrand Lockwood has tendered
his resignation as a treasnrer of the
Company, and on Monday his successor
will be chosen.
The Post has the best authority for
stating that the Barings had no connec
tion with the -late government transac
tions. It also says Duncan & Sher manld
entire sales of gold during the go
frenzy were only 8200,000, all in the regu
lar course of their exchange business.
The World gives tree following as sn
opinion expressed yesterday by A. T.
Stewart: “I disapproved of the policy
of selling gold and purchasing -bonds
with the proceeds, believing, as I do, it
will never lead us, as it is probably
meant to lead us, to specie payments.
Such a policy would not lead us to
such a result inten years—no, nor in a
hundred. The purchase of bonds with
gold gives the speculators the means to
carry on their operations. This policy is
