Badges baa concentrated his forces. Citizens ore collecting from ovory portion of Attakappas. Most of the recruits ore of tho bettor class and well mounted, and generally armed with brooch loading shot-guns. Bo for tho young men, prin cipally, have gone to tho field. Married men in tho towns are watching tho negro organizers, and are preparing to frustrate them. Captains of steamboats have boon warned not to trans port Metropolitans, and consequently did not bring those at tho * bay, knowing that their boats would bo blown up. Tho ontlro Bayou Tccho is under surveillance by well-organized bodies of citizens. The Kellogg troops can only roach St. Martins -villo by fighting their way up tho bay. It is generally supposed that an engagement took place last night, but no reports have boon re ceived up to tho present hour. Bbabheau City, La., May 7.—Eight Metropoli tans arrived this morning, making forty-eight altogether. Tho citizens refusodthomall shelter, and they are stopping in a small negro cabin filled with negroes. They have orders to go to Bt. Martinsville, but can got *no transportation. Tho ferry flat-boat hero h(ts boon removed. Tho • Tocho boats stopped near Franklin, and are guarded by citizens. Citizens here are still determined. All is quiet. One Metropolitan, just arrived hero from Bt. Martinsville, who came through tho swamp, has verbal dispatches for Now Orleans. Ho says Badger is hemmed In. Ho hoard heavy cannonading at 2 o’clock this morning. A grand turnout will take place of tho Ma sons, firemen, and religions societies, for the purpose of laying tho corner-stone of tho now Court-House at this place, to-day. Tho ‘Crowd will bo.largo. Tho Grand Jury havo passed resolutions to havo Kellogg and his officers appear koforo thorn, on tho charge of usurping tho govern ment of Louisiana. Judge Abell ordered tbo report filed, and aubpamas aro to bo issued for tho parties to appear boforo tho Grand Jury. Tho Grand Jury also report against tho Metro politan Police. New Orleans, May 7.—Forty-ono horses and thirty mon, Kolloggltos, with arms and accoutre ments, left at 7 p. m. by Morgan’s Texas Rail road for tho Tocho country. Tho excitement prevailing throughout tho city was increased this evening by a report-that Kel logg had been shot. Tho report was untrue, but It appears that a pistol was firod near him, and somo reports say at him.' Tho Superintendent of Morgan's Texas Bail road makes tlio following statement: This morning, a detachment of police took charge of and picketed the wharf of the Texas Boilrood Company, interfering with business and creating alarm. I rebuked Flanigan, who was in charge of tho police, and sent word to Kellogg expressing disapprobation of thoir con duct. At half-past 4 o’clock Kellogg called at tho office, comer of Natchez alloy and Mkgazino street, to explain tho matter. While doing so hia carriage, at the door, was immediately sur rounded by a largo, excited crowd, who com menced jeering and denouncing him. Just as Kellogg’s carriage was being driven off, some one in tho crowd fired a pistol. Tho driver im mediately plied tho whip, and drovo through Natchez alley at a furious pace. Buabueab City, La., May 7.—Tho boats aro all seized by tho citizens. Tho United States troops aro detained hero, and unable to proceed further for want of transportation. New Orleans, May 7.—The Kosisters assert that, although the United States troops aro go ing to St. Martinsville upon tho application of the United States Marshal upon a plea of serv ing a civil process, their real object, or tho effect of thoir mission, will bo to relievo tho Met ropolitans, whoso petitions for help are thus hooded. All tho city papers condemn tho action of tho mob in breaking Into the Government stores last night, and Qov. MoEnory has issued an ad dress of a similar purport. New Orleans, May 7—3 p. m.—Tho Pica yune's Now Iberia special says: A sharp engage ment took place to-day at St. Martinsville. Tho police, about 2:13 p. m., made a sortie from tbo town, attacked tbo forces of Col. Doblano, who foil back before them. The police fired both solid shot and sholl from their cannon, but with out effect. They advanced about a mile and a half beyond tho town and made a stand, but re treated after a brisk skirmish before tho forces of Col. Doblano. Diusitcah, Lr., May 7.—Tho United States troops aro still here, quartered in the railroad depot. They oxpoot to leave to-morrow, with the agreement that no Metropolitans shall have transportation with them. New Ouleanb, May 7.—Tho Picayune has tho following: Reporter—Mr. Kellogg, lam a representative of tho Picayune, and, if you have no objection to toll them, I should like you to detail tho faots of tho attempt on your life to-day. Mr. K.—Certainly, I have no objection. I left the Mechanics* Institute, this afternoon, in com pany with Oapt. George L. Norton, and wont through Common to Slagazino, and turned up Magazine to Whitney’s oflico for tho purpose of seeing Mr. Hutchinson regarding some com plaints 1 hoard ho had raaao about his passen gers being interrupted this morning by tho police. After conversing with Mr. Hutchin son a short time, I told Norton ho need nob wait for mo. Ho wont off, and a few min utes lator 1 loft Mr. Hutchinson. On walking down the stops, Just as I was about getting Into my carriage, some gontlomeu standing by asked mo if my name was Kellogg, anjl I answered yes. Ho spoke very hastily, excitedly. Reporter—bid you know him to bo Mr. Raltov? Mr. K.—No. 3 Reporter—Have you auy remembrance of his appearance ? Mr. K.—Ho was a fine-looking, rather middle aged man, of large stature. I noticed several rough characters and hoys a little distance off, who seemed to be drawn on each side, There CHICAGO, THURSDAY, MAY 8, 1873. might have boon of mon and boys fifteen or twenty. Reporter—Ho ashed you If you wore Gov. Kel logg or Mr* Kellogg ? • Mr. K.—l can’t say whether ho said Mr. Kel logg or Got. Kellogg. . Reporter—What did ho do when you told him you wore Gov. Kellogg ? Mr. K.—Ho epoko excitedly, and used litlrsh language, saying “You aro a damned scoundrel,” and one or two othor expressions of liko Import. I was in tho act of getting into tho carriage, - and Isaidtohimt “I am not acquainted with you: I don't know that I have done anything to offona you, sir." Somo othor person, a short distance off, raised his hand and shook hts fist at mo, Baying something 1 could not understand, be cause my driver started tho horses. As wo wont around tho eornor from Magazine street, I hoard a shot, and simultaneously folt tho passage of a shot by my nook. Reporter—'Tho reporters had It that you woro shot in the nock. Mr. K.—Well, tho reason of that Is that when tho ball passed I involuntarily raised my band to my nock, Tho driver was driving pretty fast, and I said to him, “Bo careful and don't run Into that dfay.” 1 spoko protty sharp to him. I really was not conscious that a pistol was aimed at mo until I folt a tingling. ■ Reporter—You then wont whore ? Mr. K.—Just as soon ns we drove on Gamp street I said. “ Don’t drive so fafit,",and;iio drove comparatively slow round to tho St. Charles Hotel. Reporter—l hoard that you wont to tho Bt. Charles Hotel and proourod a closo carriage, and had fifteen policemen to como up hero as a body guard. Mr. K.—That Is nut ho. 1 was at thu hotel some time talking to Mr. Rivera, until I came up horo with Oapt. Flanigan iu tho carriage that is standing at tho door. Reporter—Then I suppose, Mr. Kellogg, that is all you know of tho affair. Mr. K.—That is all I know; but I have been told slnco that tho person who accosted mo was Mr. Ralley. While Mr. Kelley was narrating tho incidents of his narrow escape, quite a number of persons dropped in, having hoard tho Hying rumors, and when ho olosod bis story they stopped forward and congratulated him. Dr. Kellogg, Judgo Howell, and others of Kellogg's adherents, woro among those who first offered their congratula tions. Tbo young man who fired the shot was about three paces nohind the carriage as it turned into Natchez street, followed by a largo and jeering crowd. It penetrated the back of the carriage. The man was well dressed, very quiet, and Tory collected. Special Dispatch to The Chicago Tribune, Washington, May 7.— Private dispatches from Louisiana represent the condition of affairs there as oven worse and more alarming than detailed in the general press telegrams. Gov. Kellogg started out with the determination to crush the MoEnery party, but lie finds this more difficult than ho anticipated. The MoEnery party are armed and arming, and in many ports of the State it is reported they will bo able to offer sue oossful resistance to Kellogg’s forces. Up to this time Gov. Kellogg has not called upon the President of tho United States In the way prescribed by tho Constitution for assistance. According to tho last decision of the Acting Secretary of War, Secretary Robeson, Gon. Emory la not authorized to use tho national troops until ho does so, except to secure, tho Borneo of process issued by tno United- Mates Courts. FARMERS AND PRODUCERS Second Day’s of tlto Farmers’ and Producers’ Convention —JosinU (fumey elected Chairman-* Resolutions and Speeches* New York, May 7.—Tbo Farmers’ Cheap Transportation Convention met this forenoon at 10:80, R. H. Ferguson, of Troy, N. Y., in tho ohnir. After a number of associations had been ad mitted to representation in the Convention, the Committee on Permanent Organization made tho following report: President,‘[Josiah Quincy,Bos ton; Secretary, R. H. Ferguson, Troy; Vice- Presidents, Lewis A. Thomas, Iowa; Henry Bronson, Kansas; Gon. west, Wiscon sin ; Wm. Buswoll, Iowa; Gov. Smith, Geor gia ; J. A. Thompson. West Virginia; Adalbert Amos, Mississippi; Goo, J. Pott, Now York :J. B. Phinnoy, Illinois; W. G. Wood, Ohio ;E. A. Stanwood, Missouri: J. H. Gray. District of Columbia: Joseph E. Stetson, Now Jersey; Franklin 0. Johnson, Indiana; A. Morrison, Minnesota; A. L. Dodge, Vermont; E. Waklos, Nebraska ; ox-Gov. Padioford, Rhode Island ; Gon. T. C. Horsey, Maine ; J. B. Sergeant, Con necticut ; Henry 8. Hall, North Carolina ; Col. Palmer, Columbia. S. 0. ; M. D. Wilbur, Michi gan ; James MoArthur, Kentucky; Daniel Pratt, of Alabama. Tho report was approved, and a Committee of fivo was appointed to inform Mr. Quincy of his appointment. When that gentleman entered tbo room ho was warmly received. In his address to the Conven tion Mr. Quincy said that he had spout a largo part of his life in building railroads, and ho felt very keenly tho danger growing out of immense railroad monopolies, lie appreciated their groat benefits, but was aware of their danger to tho people. Tho groat granaries of Illinois hold enough to supply tho East with food, but it de pends on one or two men to say what shall be paid for that food when de livered In Eastern cities. Ho thought something must bo done to take this matter out of tbe hands of tbo few men. It was a matter that interested deeply tbo whole coun try, and should not bo controlled by a very few. The object of this association was to counteract tho groat evil. Railroads havo power to bribo Legislatures, and will continue to dictate laws until tho people shall have come together and assort their rights. Tho rights of railroad shareholders are not to bo infringed upon, but the paramount right of tho whole people to cheap transportation must bo assorted and se cured. The constitution and by-laws'reported provide that tho organization shall bo known as “ Tho National American Cheap Transportation Asso ciation," whose object shall bo tho cheapening and equalization of railroad transportation rates throughout tho United States, and mako pro vision also for a subordinate association in each State, and rogulato minor matters for tho guid ance and government of national and State as sociations. TheConvontlon then took a recess till 0 o’clock ibis afternoon. Tho Convention reassembled at 3 o’clock. Tho following parties woro admitted as dele gates : The Itov. Ur. Freeman. Illinofa ;JM. M. • Pomeroy, Charles H. Morris, of tho Pnrvoyors’ Association and Board of Trade, Now York ; tho Hon. D. B. Hellish, and Theodore E. Tomlin son. While waiting for tho report of tho Com mittee on Resolutions. Horace H. Bay. H. M. Pomeroy, and others, delivered brief addrossas, advocating tho objects of tho movement. The Boorotary road a letter from Gov. Smith, of Georgia, regretting his inability to bo present, and expressing tho opinion that cheap transpor tation can only bo secured by linos of wator communication, Tho lottor concludes as fol-' lows: “I agree with you, that there is no question before tho country of equal impor tance with this, and 1 heartily. second you la your patriotic dosiro that neither party ties nor sectional jealousies be suffered to interfere with or impedo tho success ful prosecution of tho grand undertaking. It would glvo mo great ploasuro to soo you at tho Convention at Atlanta on tho 20th of May, ac companied by such delegation as tho Convention of tho Gth of May soloot. M. D. Wilber, Chairman of tho Committee on Resolutions, made a report. Tho resolutions created considerable discussion, somo delegates objecting to the strong language used toward tho railroad corporations. Tho resolutions woro takon up section by section, and discussed and adopted. The following aro tho resolutions, as amended and adopted: WiiEtieiß, The productive industries of tho United States, plantation and farm, mins and factory, com mercial and mercantile, are not only tho sources of all our national and individual wealth, but also the ele ments on which our very national and Individual ex istence depends; and All national products are tho fruits of labor and capital, and as neither labor nor capital will continue actively employed without an equivalent measurably Just; and Wuuubab, Great national industries aro ouly sus tained and prospered by the interchange of products of one section of country with those of another: and Wiikukah, Tho existing rates of transportation for tho varied products of the Union from one part of the country to another, and to foreign countries, as well as the transit cost of the commodities required in ex change are, in many instances injurious, and to certain interests absolutely destructive, arising, In part at least, from an Insutlicloucy of avenues: and WiiBUEAS, Tho great national want of the nation to day is relief from tho present rates of transit upon American products: therefore, Jleaolved, That it Is the duty of tho hour, and the mis sion of this Association, to obtain from Congress and the different State Lefflfdaturc* such Icgtelntton an may bo nocofleary to control ami limit by law, within the proper constitutional and legitimate limit*, the rate* ami charge* of existing line* of tranoporlallou; to in crease, whore practicable, tho capacity of our present water ways, ami to add *uch now measure*, both water and rati, os our Immensely increasing Internal com merce demand*, so that the.producer may lie Jointly rewarded for hi* honest toll, the consumer have cheap product*, and our almost limitless surplus find foreign markets at rales to comt»clo with Urn world. lletolvcd, That a cheap transportation, both of per sons and property, being most conducive to tho free movement of tho people, and tho widest Interchange and consumption of tho products of tho different parts of (ho Union, is essential to tho welfare and prosperity of tho country.

fieaolved. That constant anil frequent association of tho inhabitants of rcnlolo parts of tho United Slates is not only desirable,but necessary, forthomalnlonnncoof , a homogenous amt harmonious population within the vast area of our territory, • lifaolced, That tin) beat Interests of the different parts of the country also demand the freest possible Inter change of the Industrial products of the varied climates and Industries of the United Slates/so that breadstuffs, textile fabrics, coal, lumber, iron, sugar, and various other products, local in their production but general In their consumption, may nil roach the consumer at the least practicable costof transportation, and that nh arbitrary and unnecessary tax levied by tho transporter over and above a fair remuneration for Investment Is a burden upon tho producer and consumer, that It is part of wise slalosniansfllp to remove.. Itenolval, That certain loading- railroad corporations .of the country, although chartered to subserve tha public welfare, and endowed with tho right of eminent domain solely for that reason, have proved themselves practically monopolies, and become the tools of avari cious and unscrupulous capitalists to bo used to plun der the public, enrich themselves, and impoverish tho country through which they run, Tfcsofmf, That many of tho railroad corporations have not only disregarded tho public convenience and prosperity, but have oppressed citizens, bribed our legislatures, and dolled our Executive and Judges, and stand to-day a most menacing danger to American liberty and to republican government. JtesolvcJ, That the present system of railway man agement, having failed to meet the Just expectations and demands of a long suffering people, must be radically reformed and controlled by tho strong hand of tho law, both State and National, and tho railway corporations compelled to perform their proper func tions as servants, and not as masters, of the people. Uesolced, That to this end wo invoke the aid of all fair-minded men lu all States of thu Union In exclud ing from tho halls of legislation, from our executive ofllccs, and from the bouch.’all such railway olllclals, railway attorneys, or other hirelings, as prostitute pub lic ofllco to (ho base use of private gain. Jteaolved, That, leaving tho different sootions and In terests that desire cheap transportation to work out tho problem In such manner ns they may deem best, wo earnestly Invoke their careful consideration, their energetic action, and their resolute will in regulating and controlling rates of transportation, and in giving remunerative wages to tho producer and cheap pro ducts to tho consumer, unlaxed by unearned charges for their carriage. Jtfaolccd, Thnt'wo invito tho people of tho various States to organize subsidiary associations. State, coun ty, and town, to co-operate with tho National Associa tion ; that tho power to accomplish tho purposes de sired rests absolutely with tho suffering millions. Ilelicf Is within their roach and control. United ac tion and tho near future will give, no cerlalu as It Is needed, for oil tlmo and tho good of all, tho truo solu tion of tho problem of cheap transportation. On motion, tho following oommittoo was ap pointed to draft an address to tho people : Tho lion. Josiah Quincy, Boston; M. D. Wilber, Michigan } Horace 11. Day, Now York City ; R. H. Ferguson, Troy, N. 1.; Henry Bronson, Kan sas ; J. A. Noonan, Milwaukee : and W. 11. 0. Price, Now York. Tho Convention then adjourned to moot in Washington, January, 1874, at the call of the Exocutlvo Committee. Special Dispatch to The Chicago Tribune . New York, May 7. —Tho Convention of West ern farmers now in session in this city, having elected Josiah Quincy, of Boston, President, and other officers, besides adopting a Constitution, proceeded to consider tho ways and moans of cheapening tho rates of transportation of pro duce. Mr. Quincy, in an eloquent address, said that ho had spent a largo part of his .life in building railroads. Ho felt very keenly tho danger growing out of immense railroad monopolies. Ho appreciated their groat ben efits, but was aware of their danger to' tho people. Tho great granaries of Illinois hold enough to supply tho East with food, but it depends upon one or two men to say what shall bo paid for tho food when delivered in tho East ern cities. Ho thought something must bo done to take this out of tho hands of a few men. WALL STREET, Review of the Money, (Sold, Bond, Stock, and Produce Murkots, Dispatch to The Chicago Tribune. New York, May 7.—Tho supply of loanable funds at this point is steadily increasing. Tho money market scemo at last to have settled down to an easy condition for tho spring and summer months. Currency js still flowing this way. Tho banks aro getting into stronger posi tions, and are discounting moro freely for their customers, as well as offering increased amounts of money on call to loading brokers. On tho Stock Exchange money was very easy to-day, and the brokers supplied themselves at 7 to 5 per cent per annum. One of tho gratifying changes re sulting from tho present condition of finances Is the increased demand for mercantile paper, of which very largo amounts wore placed yester day and to-day in tho open market at 7 to 9 per cent for prime names, and 10 to 1-1 per coat for second-class names. Many capitalists manifest a disposition to place money for a period of time covering the summer months, hence all offerings of -strictly prime paper are eagerly taken., up. Another important feature attending tho increased ease in money is the improved demand for now rail way bonds, which have good properties behind them, and which aro offered by naukors of stand ing in tho community. This demand for railway bonds is likely to increase in future, when wo roach a groat plethora of money, which event seems not very far distant. STOCKS. Tho stock market presented no unusual fea tures this afternoon. Canton, one of thaw's favorites, and of which ho is supposed to hold nine-tenths of tho stock, advanced to 104#@ 105#. Tho stock during tho recent depression sold at 85. Tho most active stock has boon Union Paolflo. GOLD closed at 117.#. nOKDS. Governments at tho closo woro Arm. PRODUCE. Tho inquiry for low grades of flour la good nnd these aro scarce ; aim tho market is Armor for shipping extras and good uuporfluo. Medi um grades aro plenty audhoavy. Family grades aro quiot but steady. Tho demand for whoat early in tho day was rathor moro active, and under moro favorable nows from Europe, prices woro Armor. Tho demand is chiefly for export. Tho market for moss pork continues very dull. But littlo business reported. There is scarcely auy demand for round lots. Uuder unfavorable reports -from Western points tho market declined. Tho markot for Western steam lard, for spot and future delivery, opened strong at yesterday’s quotations, but a hmitod demand soon caused a reaction. Somo sales woro made at 0%0 on tho spot. For tho balance of tho mouth, Juno, and July, trado was dull. Indiana Municipal Elections. Indianapolis, Ind., May 7. —Full returns from all tho wards in Iho city give Mitoboll, Democrat, for Mayor. 878 majority. Tho Republican candi dates on tuo balance of tho ticket aro olootod by majorities ranging from 180 to 680. The now Council will stand 11 Republicans to 7 Demo* crate, Fort Wayne, Ind, ( May 7.— Tho contest on yesterday over tho city election was one of tho most exciting for many years. Tho Republicans had no ticket in tho Hold, hut supported tho In dependent Democratic ticket, which was not put before tho people until Monday morning.

Hiu two daughters and Senator Bpraguo wore prosont. Tho Chief Justice camo on horo on Saturday evening to visit Mrs. W. 8. Hoyt, hiu daughter. Ho was in unusually good health and spirits. This favorable state of things continued until yesterday morning, when at 10 o’clock a servant sent to call him to breakfast, on entering his room, found Hr. Ohaso lying in a state of un conscious stupor. His daughter was summoned, and servants wore dispatched for modical aid. When tho physicians arrived, tho unconscious ness was found to bavo resulted from the recur rence of paralysis, of which ho has had several strokes. All efforts to relievo him proved una vailing, and it was evident that his vitality was ebbing away. Gov. Sproguo and-his wife, daughter of Judge Chase, woro summoned, and arrived in the city last evening. His two daugh ters remained by his bedside until, at 10:80 this morning, ho breathed his Inst. Ho remained totally unconscious from tho time his condition was discovered until Hid end. Special Ditpatth to The Chicago Tribune. Washington, 4 May 7.—"When Chief Justice Chase loft hero last Saturday for Now York |io was rather fooblo, but not moro so than ho has boou for sovoral weeks past, and hla friends did uotauticlpatoso sudden a termination of his life. It is certain that Judgo Chaso himself had' no immediate apprehension of death. Ho bad made arrangements for a somewhat oztonded trip. The points of his journey included Now- York, Providence, Boston, and Cin cinnati, bringing up in. Colorado Ter ritory, whore ho proposed spending moat of the summer with an old friend. Ho had an idea that the dear, bracing nir of Colorado would bo of great benefit to him. This was also tbo opinion of his physician, Dr. Brown-Soquard, under whoso care ho bad recently placed him self. On tho occasion of his departure from tho oity, ou Saturday morning last, a littlo broaltfast party was assembled at tbo Bpraguo mansion, comer of Sixth and E streets, whoro tho Chiof Justice has resided for a year past ( consisting of Judgo Chaso; Judgo Worden, his pri vate secretary and biographer; Miss "Walker, a sister of Judge Walker, of Ohio ; Miss Carrio Moulton, and Miss Amy Auld, a nlcco of tho Chief Justice. Mrs. Sprague had loft Washington two days before, ami was not present, nor wan Senator Sprague, who toft for tho East soon- after tho adjourn ment of Congress. The breakfast passed off pleasantly, although it was noticed that tho Chiof Justice was not in his usual spirits. Judgo Chaso’s last interview with any loading statesman in Washington was with Senator Sum ner. Mr. Sumner is himself an invalid and un able to make calls, but. learning that tho Chiof Justice was about to leave tho city, ho mado an extra effort, os ho says, and called upon him on Friday, afternoon. Tho interview was brief, continuing for about half an hour. Mr. Sumner says it was exceedingly pleasant, aud tho Chiof Justice discussed public affairs with his accustomed clearness aud ability. There was nothing to indicate any impaired con dition of tho mohtalfacnltios. “ xou know.” said Mr. Sunmor, to-day, in relating tho circum stances of tho interview, “Judgo Chaso and I woro always warm frionds. I had a great respect. for him, not moro on account of his abilities as a statesman than because of his patriotism. Wo sat together in tho Bonato iu tho days when tho principles of tho Kopublican party woro not as popular as thay are now, aud I always found him faithful.” Mr. Sunmor says thoy talked over tho old times, and then reverted to cmront topics, among others the conditions of affairs in Louisiana, Tho Chief Justice was of op'nion that Congress com mitted a great blunder in failing to act upon that question when it was presented to them. Such scenes as wore being enacted in Louisiana woro calculated, ho thought, to destroy tho faith of tho people in a llopub lican form of government. His criticisms of public men wore free and candid, but of course those woro not intended for tho public. When ho heard of tho death of tho Chief Jus tice, Mr. Sumner was much affected. Ho ex pressed great gratification that he had tho pleas ure of meeting him so recently. Tho following lottor was received on Monday by Judgo'Wordon, Judgo Chase’s private secretary and biographer. It iu the last lottor received hero from Jaita, and was written in lead pencil: Dear Judge: Please oxcuao my penciling. It la more convenient than ink. I had rather a cold and bleak rido yester day, relieved by the comfort of a compartment which I should call a box, but was rewarded at the end of it by seeing my children In good health, and some of my grandchildren. There is nothing changed in my per sonal condition. How do you feel now that lam gone 7 Relieved from my sick ways and utterances, or upon the whole are you sorry to miss me 7 Remember mo to Bonn and Mrs. Platt when you see them. I hope Mrs. P. has quite recovered from the effects of the shock and discomforts to which ebo was subjected by the fire. Toll Bonn that I was disappointed by his non-fulfillment of his promise to Mrs. Sprague to call on mo tossy "good-bye.” Bo you remember Br. Brown-Sequord’s note? Was it left among the letters of which you took charge? Please inclose it by return mail. I still propose going to Boston on Wednesday or Thursday, and particularly want the note. Faith fully your friend, B. P. Chase. ilon. 11. B.'WordeD, ■Washington, May 7.— Tho Chief Justice had boon for a long time under tho impression that his disease was tho result of foyer and ague, contracted several years ago in Michigan, tho peculiar feature of which was physical weakness and inability to labor continuously.
