Tax Superior Court of Buffalo has re-'
cently made a decision in regard to usury,
which, if generally sustained, will be of
great importance to banks. It holds that
national banks arc not rubject to the laws
of States as to the rate of interest on dis-
Counts, insomuch as they derive their ex
istence from the General Government's
It having been established that Congress
has the constitutional power to na

Buffalo Court, - there was no question as
to the usury under the State law, but the
Court refused to let the queition go to the
jury, and directed a verdict for the amount
loaned, with interest at seven per cent.
The point involved is not a new one
among lawyers, but we believe this is the
I first decision by a respectable tribunal
upon the precise point Involved as be

will readily be seen that if this decision
be sustained it will give a material ad

the former from loss of the entire amount

A strange Story
One of the Paris journals announces
the death, at Versailles, of a Russian lady
who .appeared at the drawing rooms in
Paris In 1418 and 1849, and was nick
named the "Dam - c ala Clef." She died,
aged forty-five, in the most complete sol
itude. •It is said her husband, who was
much older than ahe, clime to see her for
wcek or two every six months, and
went away again no one knew whither.
All was mysterious About this Lady of the
Key. Last month the husband did not
return as usual, but a letter came an•
'flouncing his death, The widow survived
I him a few days only, and it is supposed
Ishe allowed herself to die of hunger.
Whether true or not, this was the story
that was whispered about her when she
appeared in Paris, young and beautiful,
more than twenty years ago. It Is said
that her husband surprised her in a little
country house which he possessed near
Moscow at the moment she was hastily
shutting somebody up in a wardrobe. A
servant bad betrayed her. The Musco•
vile Othello turned the key twice in the
wardrobe, took it out, and then told Ida I
wife to follow him. A traveling britzka
stood a few paces from the villa.. Morel
dead than alive, the unhappy. woman
obeyed. . ,
When the husband bad placed Ler In
the carriage, and given an order In'a low
voice to the coachman, "Keep this key,"
he said to his wife: "I have forgotten
something and will return." and then
went back to the house. Ile returned
according to his promise, but as the car
riage destended the hill the peer woman
saw the flames issuing from the windows
of the country house and taking full pos.
session of it. She fainted away, and on
regaining her senses perceived that a gold
chain was riveted round her neck to
which the little key of the wardrobe was
attached. She wished to kill herself, but
her husband threatened her that If she
committed suicide he would reveal her
misconduct and cover her end her family
with dishonor. She was therefore con
demned to live, and her strange neck
lace excited much curiosity in Paris. At
last her tyrant allowed her to' retire Into
a quiet retreat on the express stipulation
that she would not attempt to destroy
herself during his life time. Ills death
released her hem this condition; but she
bad languished for more than twenty
years, bedsit the witness of her guilt
always before her eyes. It is a curious
story; we wonder whether it is true?

A London letter cObinini Ude
"Londoners have been recently fur

theatres have about run their course, and

after the fashion of bull fights in Spain,
in every essential particular, so far as the
mere representations go. That is, the
animals are really alive, and the perform
ers are genuine Spaniards.; All the para
phernalia of the Spanish bull ring are
faithfully exhibited. But here the par
allel ends. The bulls are not ferocious,
and even have their horns tipped so that
they can do no mischief. In fact, it is
quite Lmpoesible to coax or goad them into
anything like a becoming fury, and, in
stead of being finally slain by the trium

which the protectionists of the Houeo
could do, was to units Ins reasonable

of public opinion and tried ' to
protect industry against sudden collapse

understand the temper of the AlMes.^,
protectionists would be compelled,
they did not do It of their own volition,
to submit to a violent_ reduction, one
which would without much dlecrimina .

way. He warned them there would be a
reaction which would break down the
protective system. and be believed that
the wisest thing lie friends would do was to
stand by and see that the reduction was
steadily and prudently and carefully
made. He warned them there were

COIIILESPOiDENT of the New York
Times in predicting a second term for
Grant, gives the following fair summary
of the present administration: "Grant
has tried to du what is right. He has
kept the peace; he has paid the debt; he
has controlled the revenge; he lies
shunned. alluring quarrels; be has not
angered the country by distracting disser
tations on the Constitution; he has been
rich in saving common sense; and
although be has disappointed aldermen
and ward politicians, and the shoofly'
'statesmen who would own him—the
people who plow and weave and dig, and
who have no interest beyond their crops
and. yarn believe .In Grant. It is a
great thing to know we have amen who
means to do what is right, and once we
have him we arc going to sustain him."
