DAILY TOWANDA REVIEW. TOWANDA, PA., SATURDAY AFTERNOON, DECEMBER 13, 1879. The News Condensed. General Grant received an enthusiastic , reception in Cincinnati. Francis E. Hayden has been acquitted of the alleged poisoning of his sister. Great anxiety prevails in Russia in ex pectation of new repressive measures by the Goverment. The Chamber of Deputies at Paris has appropriated $1,000,000 to relieve thesuti i ering poor of France. Governor Hoyt has again refused to deliver Mr. Kedhelier, whom Mrs. Walling ibrd claims married her, to the New York authorities. The Surgeon General of the United State Marine Hospital has issued a circu lar for the guidance of persons desiring to enter the medical corps of that service. The Republican papers of Kansas prove, on a count, to be about equally divided between Grant and Blaine as presidential candidates. Ex-Secretary of War McCrary expects to leave Washington early next week to assume the duties of I uited States Judge of the Eighth Judicial Circuit. The officers of the new French Cable Company deny that there is any defect in i the cable, and declare that the line w ill be obened for trullic shortly. Three thousand four hundred and lifty one acres ol' white pine and white oak timber land in Centre county lias been sold foi <562,000 to Mr. John T. Fowler of Fowler post-ottice that county. Among the converts made to temper ance by a "blue ribon" movement in At lanta, Ga., is Major S. \V. Small ("Old Si"j> one of the funny writers of the At lantic Constitution. About two hundred colored refugees bound for Indiana passed through Wash ington on Wednesday night. They expect ! to sett le near Greeneastle, in that State. Several thousand additional "hands" could be employd there. Haulan, the oarsman, was in New York Thursday and signed a paper agree ing to extend until December 22 the terms of the compact enter into November 1)5. llanlan says this is the last chance lie will give Courtney to row lor the $6,000 prize. When the Treasury Department was cutting down expenses in 1876 the salar | ics of all the subordinate oliieers and ein | ployees in the New \ ork C'usloin-house were reduced ten per cent. An etfort is now being made to have these salaries restored to the old figure. The present purpose of the Democracy in Washington is to have a short session and adjourn by May 1. There is not likely to be a revision of the tariff or other general legislation. The majority are on 1 their good behavior and have become rid- i iculously demure. The Postmaster General yesterday is sued an order to the postmasters in New York forbidding the payment of any pos- | tal money order drawn to the order of j Simpson &, Co. at No. 4l> Exchange Place, ! New York, and to return all registered ! letters addressed to this tirin to the post masters at the oliices where they were 1 originally mailed. The order is based upon investigations of a special agent of the Post Oltiee Department, who reports that Simpson & Co. arc engaged in con ducting a scheme or device for obtaining money through the mails by means of false and fraudulent pretenses. • ' I W el come News !
