The bondholders and their organs
are incessant in their endeavors to
muddle the question as to whether the |
five-twenty bonds are payable in legal-
tenders or not, The law and the facts |
are against them, and the only hope of
carrying their point is to throw doubt |
upon and confuse the matter. Then
they try to bring to their aid weak ar
guments about the honesty and morali-
ty of the question, as if there were any
moral obligation to pay the Shylock
demand of a dollar for every fifty or
sixty cents invested, and that contrary
to the spirit and letter of the law. If
the principal of the five-twenties were
intended to be paid in coin that would
have been mentioned in the act, just
as the obligation to pay coin interest is
mentioned, and just as the law express
ly stipulates to pay the ten-forty bonds

Lister, proposed the following.

of the Institution now known as the

ty of Centre County, that we commend
the honest, energetic, disinterested and
self- sacrificing conduct of H. N. McAl-

Trustees of the Agricultural College of
Pennsylvania, and fupther that we re-
quest him not to resign hig position as
such Trustee, but that he contimic still
to discharge the duties of the same.

On motioti of Mr. Adam Hoy the
following gentlemen were appointed

Great Britain,
August 21.—Dispatches
were received in this city to-day giving
the particulars of a heart-rending ca-
lamity which occurred in North
Wales yesterday afternoon, wherehy
twenty-five persons lost their lives.
A trainof cars from Holyhead, con-
taining the passengers and mails from
[reland, which was proceeding towards
Liverpool at the usual speed, met with
a sad accident to-day at thelittle town
of Abergele, in the County, of Der-
bigh. A Jong train of loaded petro-
leum trucks had just been switched on
a siding to make way for the Irish
mail train, but the switch-tender neg-
A dread-
ful colision was the consequence,
Is it not evident there-
fore, that the framers of this law, when
they said these notes should be recely-
ed in payment of all debts, publie and
private, had in view the payment of
that very debt which was created by
the second section of the same act?
Undoubtedly they had, and meant
that Government, if it choose, and
found it convenient to do so, should
pay these five-twenties in greenbacks.
This is simply the law and the fact,
and all the balderdash of the bond-
holders and their organs upon the
question is unnecessary and amounts
to nothing,
as aforesaid.”

August 20.—The attack on the Para-
| guayan fortress of Humita took place
on the 16th of July. On the morning
of that day the combined Brazilian and
Argentine forces, under the ¢onniand
of Marquis de Caxias, advanced to as-
sault in three columns amounting to
ten thousand men. At the same time
a heavy fire was opened upon the for-
tifications, from the fleet of iron clads
and land batteries. After desperate
and prolonged fighting at the foot of
the entrenchments the allied forces reti-
red without effecting a lodgement with-
in the enemy’s works. The loss of the
allies is reported at three thousand kil-
led and wounded. There is nothing
known of the losses of the Paraguyan’s,
but as they fought most of the time |
under cover of intrenchments, it is sup-
posed the number of their killed and
wounded will fall far below that of the
allies. The allied force in Granchao
also advanced with the subject of cut-
ting off the communications of Lopez |
in the forest. They found them defen-
ded by a large body of Paraguyans,
protected by breastworks. After an
obstinate engagement the allies with-
drew to their former position. The
casualties in this battle are not stated.
The hopes of the war party in Brazil
rested upon the success of this enter-
prise, and its failure will give great
