HARRISBURQ, Aug 1 . 31—Fourteen
bills of indictment have been found by
the grand jury of this county for cor
. rapt solicitation in and about the I.leg
islature. for perjury and for conspiracy
to promote legislative corruption. AH
of the persons arraigned are more or
less prominent in political or business
, circles, or in both, and the trial of these
defendants in Novemlier will attract a
large degree of public interest. Of the
fourteen persons indicted seven are
: members of the present House, one is
• the active man in pressing the'prosecu
' tions against his colleagues, and two
others are the chief witnesses on the
part of the Commonwealth. Charles
S. Wolfe, Representative from Union,
is the member who was the most active
man in pressing the investigation last
winter and in pushing the cases into
' the Quarter Sessions. He is a Repub
j lican member of four sessions' cxperi
' ence in the House, having been elected
1 in 1873, rP-elected in ISTt for two ses
! .-ions and again elected in lSltf. He
I was the leader in the expulsion of I'e
: troiT from the House in 1576 for the
same charge of conspiring to promote
corrupt solicitation that is now made
against hirn by our grand jury.
Emil J. I'etroff, member from the
Fifth district of Philadelphia, has had
a good deal of legislative experience
! and more or less trouble in public life.
He is now in his thirty-first year, hav
ing lieen born in Philadelphia in I*4S.
He received an education in the public
schools, and became a compositor. He
was first elected to the House in the
fall of 1574, for the sessions of 187;")
and 1870. In the latter year he was
expelled for what the resolution of ex
pulsion said vvas "conduct unliecoming
a member," but it was more explicitly
for conspiracy to promote corrupt solic
itation in connection with the Susque
hanna boom bill. In the fall of 1870
he was returned to the House, how
ever, and re-elected last year. Mr. Pe
troff is a Republican.
William F. Rumberger is a Repub
lican member from Armstrong, who
had his first legislative ex|>cricnee last
winter, although he had previously
held local offices. He is a native of
Huntingdon county, where he was
horn in 181fi. He became a woolen
manufacturer and is still in that busi
ness. He was a deputy United States
marshal in 1800 and served as a.lus
tier- of the Peace from 1803 to tBOB.
Daniel C. Clark, of the Thirteenth
district, Philadelphia, is a Republican,
a native of Lebanon county, and now
forty-four years old. He was educated
at the Lebanon Valley College, then
Annville Academy, and after some ex
perience ns a book-keeper at the Corn
wall Iron Works went to Philadelphia
and engaged in mercantile pursuits,
afterward becoming the bead of the
house of I). C. Clark it Co. lie retired
from business some time ago and was

In conversation with a member of

the secrets of the jury room—that

Verv few people have an idea of the
amount of business transacted by
what is known as the Redemption
Division of tbe United States Treas
ury. It is this division which has
charge of the work of redeeming and
reissuing the mutilated or worn-out
notes of National Hanks, and is under
the very able superintendence of Mr.
K. O. fJraves, of Xew York. Tbe
division is supported by the National
banks, each bank being asssessed upon
its circulation to pay the expense.
When a bank finds itself -in possession
of worn or mutilated currency, it packs
it up and sends it to the Redemption
Division, where it is counted,examined
and sorted, and is redeemed by an
equal amount of new or lit notes for
During the fiscal year of IS7B there
was sent in for redemption $213,000,-
000 of National bank notes, out of the
entire National bank circulation, which
in that year was $:J25,000,000. But
in October last Secretary Sherman
issued an order that banks sending
money to the Treasury to lie redeemed
must pay the express charges in ad
vance, aud this had the effect of rc
duciiig very much tbe amount of m iney
sent in for redemption, so that during
the fiscal year of 1ST!), just closed, tin:
amount received was only $1.57,000,-
000, which is the smallest for many
years. Formerly the express charges
were paid by the division,and assessed
upon tbe banks according to tho
amount of their circulation redeemed.
This order of Secretary Sherman has
caused National bank notes to remain
in circulation about one-third longer
than usual. In the fiscal year of l*7s
the actual number of notes redeemed
was about 2.1 millions, while in the
fiscal year of IH7'.» the number was lfj
The reason why there is so much
difference in the value and the number
of notes redeemed when comparing
the two years, is that when bankers
did not have to pay the impress charges
they sent many bills of large denomi
nations, but since Secretary Sherman's
order they have stopped sending large
bills, because the express charges are
reckoned upon the value of a package,
and not upon its weight, so that it
costs just as much to send a one thous
and bill a- it dues to send one thousand
one dollar bills. There are more five
dollar bills sent for redemption than of
any other denomination. This is be
cause, of course, that in tbe general
exchange of money more lives are
used, and the largest issue-; are made
of this denomination. The fifties re
detuned present the largest value, ami
there is about one fifty presented to
nine lives.
Of the $157,000,000 received for
redemption last year, only $40,000,000
were found to be totally unlit for circu
lation, anil were destroyed. The re
mainder were reissued.
Of the $157,000,000 sent in, s.'!,olti
only was found to be counterfeit, which
is an exceedingly small proportion,
and shows that the Secret Service
system is doing great good in sup
pressing counterfeits.
It is generally believed that banking
people are very careful and accurate in
handling money and doing business,
but inquiry at the Dead Letter Office
of the J'o -iollice Department will show
that a great proportion of the misdi
rected letters containing valuable pa
llet's received there are from banks, and
in the $157,000,000 received in the l!e
--ilemption Division lust year, the girls
who count the money found errors
amounting to $32,054.77. The Treas
ury "countesses'' are proverbial for
their accuracy in counting and their
aptness in detecting counterfeits, (jen.
Spinner used to say that women could
handle money under all circumstances
be tier than men. But it is due to tlie
batiks to say that nearly 70 per cent,
of the errors they made last year were
against tlicin. Out of the $32,054.77

The circulation of the National
banks is not at all evenly distributed
through the country, but four-fifths of
it is in the Eastern States. The Boston
banks alone have over twelve per cent,
of the entire circulation of the country.
The amount of (lie circulation of the
Boston National banks during the last
fiscal year was $2H,325,000, while the
circulation of the New York banks v.'iis
but $22,080,000, and of the Cbicngo
banks but $505,000, and it is a peculiar
circumstance that of the twenty-eight
millions of Boston circulation nearly
twenty-five millions passed through,

Not alone the Baptist denomina
tional papers, but the Presbyterian,
Methodist and Roman Catholic com
ment upon the recent shooting of Dr.
I. S. Kalloch in San Francisco. The
Jlajtfixl Weekly characterizes De
Young as a cowardly assassin, but at
the same time condemns, both on poli
tical and religious grounds, the style
of Dr. Kalloch's reply. "Yicious re
taliation," it says, "ill becomes one
who professes to preach the Gospel of
Christ. It would have been wiser for
him to have defended himself and to
have avoided the severe nnd offensive
IHTsiuialities by which his adversary
was enraged."
The Era miner and Chronicle re
grets that intemperate and disgraceful
words had been said on both sides,
and says it was iu every way unfor
tunate that the pastor of the leading
Baptist church in San Francisco should
have been identified with the bail
party that gave him the nomination
which caused the trouble. But De
Young's deed and the way of it the
Examiner thinks were utterly infa
The National Baptist has nothing
favorable to say of Dr. Kalloch ; does
not believe him to be a good man.
His recent teaching has been disor
ganizing and demoralizing, but there
ea:i be no doubt concerning the extent
of his abilities and his power of lead
ership. He had a right to say his say,
offensive as his say was. If he did
not violate the law he ought to have
been protected in his right of free
speech. But in a review of his life,
which is suggested by this affair, the
National Jlajtlisl thinks there ought
to be some way iu which the denomi
nation can relieve itself from all re
sponsibility for a man who brings
reproach on the ministerial profession
and on the Christian character.
The Independent characterizes the
shooting of Kalloch as "a barbarous
reprisal against one who, in a policical
canvass, had used the vilest language
which can be applied to the mother
and son of unwed maternity." On
both sides, the Independent says, the
language was unchristian and disgrace
ful ; most disgraceful, perhaps, to the
one who occupied the position of a
preacher of Christianity, which he had
already dishonored by his abusive pro
scriptiveness of the Chinese. On the
whole, there will be deservedly little
sympathy felt with ivaliocb.
The Chrintian Union calls the
shooting of Dr. Kalloch "a foul and
utterly unjustifiable murder," and
thinks it matches the murder of Mr.
Dixon in Yazoo, Mississippi. Dr.
Kalloch enjoyed greater popularity
than good repute, anil was not above
the suspicion of using his oratorical
powers for personal advancement. It
is a strange commentary, the Union
ailtls, on the condition of society in
San Francisco that the disciple of a
Muster "who, when he was reviled,
reviled not again," should have
answered scurrility with scurrility, as
Mr. Kalloch did. A natural fruitage
of the scattered seeds of scandal and
abuse in tho American press is seen in
such a murderous affray as this.
The Ev.ange.lM thinks the shooting
was a cowardly and wicked act, and
deserves the severest punishment under
the law. But it docs not excuse the
course of Mr. Kalloch in resorting to
violent and bitter personalities, which
naturally provoke violence, he, too,
being the pastor of the largest Baptist
Church ill San Francisco.
The Method in! thinks the Mississippi
murder and the San Francisco attempt
at murder closely resemble each other
in their main features, but that the
latter uproar is on a larger scale. But
both rest upon the labor line in politics.
But in view of our circumstances the
M' thodixl thinks we art! entitled, us a
people, to much credit, liecauue theso
cases are so rare.
The (Jhristiaii Leader looks upon
the shooting of Kalloch as the natural
sequel tot lie Lechmcre House (Boston)
scandal of years ago, which furnished
De Young with abundant and pertinent
material. But Kalloch,says the Leader,
thus attacked, like a true "pothouse"
politician, paid back "in kind,'' and the
belligerent journalist was made to
wince under family disclosures for the
iniquity of which lie was in no respect
to blame. But no antecedents of Mr.
Kalloch can justify or even palliate
the attempt upon his life. His assail
ant is an assassin, and the Leader trnsts
that legal justice will be rendered.
But the moral cannot be forgotten, nor
should the salutary lesson he lost.
The attempted murder of Kalloch, like
the real murder of Fisk, is but the
remote fruitage of a career that is
worse than disreputable, in that it is
brazen in its defiance of tho best public
The (Jatholie Stn ndnrd says the
murderous act 'if De Young was sim
ply tlie legitimate finale of most out
rageous proceedings on both side*.
Mr Kalloch's antecedents will not well
bear publicity. He started out, says
the Stanilaril , as a Baptist minister,
ami soon made a more than doubtful
reputation for himself in Boston, hav
ing been once tried for adultery and
escaping conviction through disagree
ment of the jury, aud then liecoming
lawyer, school teacher, horse jockey,
itinerant preacher, hotel kepper, and
finally turning up in San Francisco as
Baptist minister and politician com
bined. But the act of shooting was
lawless and murderous in the Stand-'
or<l'n view, and deserves punishment,
though individually one man proved
himself as vile a blackguard as the
other. And this journal thinks it is a
significant indication of our rapid
decadence as a people as respects the
elements of decency in private life, anil
of our want of self-respect and respect
for law iu political *f]uir«.
The l'ilot says De Young is a no
torious hluckmuilcr and represents the
worst element of bad journalism, while
his victim, though bearing a reverend
title, is far front representing anything
worthy thi; reverence or respect of
decent men. Had Kalloch been able
to return his enemy's lire, nnd had
both jierishod in the melee, society
would have gained by their loss.
NEW YORK, Aug. 27.—The Herald
publishes to-day a special dispatch
from Washington stating that Rear
Admiral Auimeu announces that Oen.
Grant is ready to serve as President
of the Nicaragua Inter-Oceanic. Ship
Canal Company, when invited to by
the Board of Directors.
It is said further that one of the
objects of Gen. Grant's European trip
was to ascertain the real feeling among
foreign capitalists about the canal.
The letter is quoted in a dispatch which
was written by Admiral Ammeu some
time ago in reply to a protest from a
prominent politician that Grant's first
duty was to the Republican party. In
this letter Admiral Ammen says:
"I think Gen. Grant's past services
as a military man and President of the
I'nited States for eight years should
exempt him from any further demands
upon his time for public lift! and leave
him a free agent to act on whatever
demand might l)e made by any enter
prise asking his services."
It is claimed that Grant has, by tele
graph, approved of this statement, and
that he has authorized Amnion to say
that he must not be considered as a
candidate for any political office in the
United States. This, of course, re
moves him from the list of Presiden
tial candidates.

The missionary case, which the past J
year attracted so much attention, was
finally decided by the British Court at
Shanghai. The missionaries complain
of an alleged outrage by the mob near
Foo Chow, declaring their property
wantonly destroyed ami the premises
invaded. The Chinese claimed that
the missionaries encroached upon the
native temple grounds and tempted
the populace to violent measures. The
Chinese submitted the cast? to the Eng
lish tribunal. The result was a com
plete vindication for them ami over
throw of the mtpsionnry position. The
result is considered important as es
tablishing a precedent for numerous
similar affairs.
YOKOHAMA, Aug. 13.—Gen. Grant
has returned since the last dispatch
and started to Kamahura, the ancient
seat of the military government, and
is now in the neighborhood of tho
mountains of Hakonc. During his
stay at, Tokio he was visited by the
Mikado, who consulted him on many
important points of international and
domestic policy. The confidence and
reliance manifested by the Government
and people are wholly unprecedented.
Grant returns to Tokio August 10,
exchanging a series of formal visits,
and sails for America bv the next mail.
A movement is in progress for the
formation of a society having in view
the extension of and protecting influ
ence for the Eastern nations against
the |H'rpetual aggressions of European
powers, the organization to lie com
pleted before Grant leaves, lie con
sented to support it. The General and
Minister Bingham strongly support
the Japanese Government against Ger
many and England in their violations
of quarantine.
The cholera continues virulent, but
signs of abatement. Within the pres
ent month thus far there has been
45,000 attacks and 25,000 deaths.

energy in checking the disease. The

funds in aid of sanitary measures.
"Whatever a man soweth, that
shall he also reap" both in the natural
and iu the moral world. Every seed
in the one and every det.il in the other,
yield fruit after its kind. This prin
ciple of sowing and reaping is espe
cially important to the young, who
are just beginning to shape their char
acter and destiny.
In the spring time of life we sow
what we must, reap in the antuinn of
age, and perhaps through the endless
ages of eternity. The chief possibili
ties of good or evil for all the future
are bound up in the period of youtb.
The sowing may lie done thought
lessly and carelessly, but it will report
itself in tlue time according to this
Men in nge often say :
"If 1 could but live my life over
again how differently it should be."
While this is impossible, still the
young may have the advantage* of a
second life by trying the counsels ami
experiences of the aged.
It is of the utmost importance for
them to understand this relation of
sowing to reaping, which is affixed to
our physical, mental and moral nature.
Men who in early life vortex the
brain or body in the frenzy to get rich ;
men who overload the wheels of life
by gluttony ; men who l*'astiali*e them
selves with sensuality; men who
burn out the vital forces with the
damning lires of alcohol ; all : uch are
liable to a strict account in after years.
When remembrances anil retribution
count upon them, then too late, they
begin to realize that whatever a man
soweth, that shall he also reap."

A terrible duel lately occurred near
Kansas City, Mo., between James
Dobbins and Michael Burns, result
ing in the death of both men. Burns
ami Dobbins were friends and neigh
bors. Four years ago Dobbins got
married, and at that time Burns lent
him eighty dollars. The money was
never paid back by Dobbins, and on
this account there was a feeling of
enmity between the men. On Friday
Burns came to town. Dobbins was
at work on the road. On his way
home Burns passed the place were
Dobbins and others were working.
The men did not have any conversa
tion. To go to his house Dobbins had
to pass by that of Burns. When Dob
bins arrived in front of Burns' house,
he found Burns standing lvfore the
door, revolver in hand. Burns said :
"Jim, I want that money you owe
Dobbins made a reply which in
censed Hums, lmt disregarding his
anger, Dobbins said: "Throw down
that revolver anil I can whip yon."
Burns throw the revolver on the
ground, by his side, when Dobbins!
said, "You have the drop on mo now,
Ixit if vou wait till 1 come back I will
bo heeled to meet you."
Dobbins then drove his horses into
his yard, and, leaving thein unhitched,
ran into the house. Here he pot two i
revolvers and started toward Hums'
place. Hums was sitting on the door
step as Dobbins came up, and before
he had time to move, and without a
word of warning to Hums, Dobbins
presented si revolver in each hand and
opened fire. The balls from both re
volvers lodged in the side of tfce house.
Burns then ran into the house, got his
pistol, and rushed out upon Dobbins.
The men advanced to within two feet
of each other before a shot was fired
by either. Dobbins fired first, the
si.ot hittirip: Burns in the right fore
arm. Burns returned the lire, and
sent two bullets through Dobbins'
chest. Although wounded desper
ately, and fast liecotning weak from
loss of blood, Dobbins summoned
strength enough to fire again, his
return shot tearing into Burns ab
domen, and passing through his body.
Full of race and desire to retaliate to
the last extremity, Burns managed to
raise his revolver and discharge it once
more. llis Inst shot struck Dobbins
under the left ear and passed clear
through his head. Hushing together
the men clinched oach other and fell
to the ground, Dobbins being under
neath. Burns then l»« nt Dobbins over
the face and head with the butt ol his
revolver. Supposing that Dobbins
was dead, Burns was about to leave
him, but with a desperate effort Dob
bins turned, and in a moment had
again thrown Burns to the ground.
One of the neighbors, a Mrs. Kalfton,
appeared at this time and pulled Dob
bins away from Burns.
Two young men coining up, the
men were separated. Burns was then
carried by the men to his own house,
and they went hack to the scene of the
light to carry Dobbins away. Lifting
the man to his feet they walked on
each side of him, supporting him be
tween them. The\' had hardly gone
live yards before Dobbins sank down
on his knees R!id died in the woods,
without uttering a word. Hums lin
gered a day or two, when he died.
Hoth of the bodies were buried in the
Catholic C'ene tery en Sunday after
noon. Burns was an unmarried man.
Dobbins leaves a wife and child.
The late William Cullen Bryant
used to ascribe the preservation of his
physical and mental vigor partly to his
simple and regular habits of life. Me
would ritje about half-past live in the
morning (summer time half an hour
earlier), and go through a series of
light exorcises before dressing. Light
dumb bells, covered with flannel, a pole,
or the horizontal bar were enough to
practice with. Sometimes he would
swing a light chair around his head.
An hour later lie would liathe from
head to foot. His breakfast was the
simplest—"hominy and milk," as lie
himself said in a letter to a friend ;
"or, in place of hominy, brown bread
or oatmeal or wheaten grits, and in
the season, baked sweet apples." lie
added, "buckweat cakes i do not tie

ble food ; but animal food I never take
at breakfast. Tea and coffee I never
touch at anytime. Sometimes I take a
cup of el olate, which has no narcotic
effect and agrees with me very well.
At breakfast I often take fruit, either
in its natural state or freshly stewed.
In the country I dine early, and It is
only at that meal that ) take either
meat or fish ; and of these but a mod

mostly of vegetables. At the meal
which is called tea I take only a little

'Tis a rule of manners to avoid ex
aggeration. A lady loses as soon as
she admires too easily ami too much.
In man or woman, the person and face
lose power when they are on strain to
express admiration. A man makes his
inferiors, his su(»oriors by beat. Why
need you, who are not a gossip, t-jilk as
a gossip, and tell eagerly what thes
neighbors or journals say? State
your opinion without apology. The
attitude is the main point. Assure
your eompanion that come good news
or come bad, you remain in good heart
and pood mind, which is the best news '*
you can communicate. Self coutrol is
the rule. You have in there a noisy,
sensual sav litre, which you are to keep
down, and turn all his strength to
lx-auty. For example: What a senes
chal and detective is laughter ! It seems
to require several generations of educa
tion to train a squeaking or a shouting
habit out of man. Sometimes, when
in r.lmost all expressions, the Choctaw
and the slave have been worked out of
him, a coarse nature still betrays itself
in his contemptible squeals of joy.
The great gain is not to shine, uot to
conquer your companion—theu you
learn nothing but conceit—but to tind
a companion who knows what you do
not; to tilt with him and IH> over
thrown horse and foot, with utter
destruction of all your logic and learn
ing. There is a defeat that is useful.
Then you can seo the real and the
counterfeit again. You will adopt the
art of war that has defeated you. You
will ride to battle horsed on the very
logic which you found irresistible. You
will accept th<*fertile truth, instead of
tin! solemn, customary lie. When
people come to seo us we foolishly
prattle, lest we lie inhospitable. Hut
things said for conversation are chalk
eggs. Don't say things. What you
are stands over you the while, and
thunders HO that I can't bear what you
say to the contrary. A lady of my
acquaintance said, "I don't care so
much for what they say, as I do for
what makes them say it." The law
of the table is beauty —a respect to
the common sort of all the guests.
Everything is unseasonable which is
private to two or three or any other
portion of the company. Tact never
violates for a moment this law ; never
intrudes the orders of tho house, the
vices of the absent, or a tariff of ex

we say, we never "talk shop" before
company. Lovers abstain from caresses
ami haters from insults, whilst they sit
in one parlor with common friends.
