THE DEFUNCT “NEWS.” Proof of Claims to Be Made, Next Tuesday Before Register Hibbard, Ample Means to Pay Off the Mebt ; edness by Calling In the Capital Stock. Names of the Holders of Stock liable to Be Assessed. Oh Tuesday next, tho creditors of tho Kcws Printing Company, in bankruptcy, will appear before the Register to prove their claims. The next thing to he done will he to provide the waysand means for settling. The creditors will be glad to learn that the unpaid capital stock for which the subscribers are thought to be liable is more than sufficient to settle all liabilities and debts in full, as an investigation of the papers and accounts .by a Tbibuxe reporter has shown., The company now bankrupt was constituted by the following stock subscription agreement :* March .14^1872.—'We, the undersigned, by our signa tures hereto, do become stockholders of the Chicago Jfeict Printing Company, to the amount of stock set opposite our respective signatures; said stock having been paid for as follows: Twenty per cent cash, and the balance in four.notes of equal amount, payable re spectively in three, six, nine, and twelve months from the date of bur subscriptions, and we do hereby‘sev erally agree to and with the said Chicago Setca ’Print ing Company, that upon the failure to pay said notes,or either of them, or any part of either of them at maturity, the Board ofDirectors of said company may, by reso lution, forfeit such stock and retain the amount that may have then been paid on said stock, as damages, but sudh forfeiture shall not relieve any one of ns from any liability to pay such notes, and each of them,. so given by us respectively, according to their tenor and affect, Daniel Cameron, 30 shares •...;$ 3,000 S.

Tho cash book of the Company shows about $37,000 received from; these stockholders. It is not necessary to examine the'items; they would bring tears to the eyes of many • reporters - who have hot forgotten the days when they used to receive their immense 'salaries in installments of §l at a time; taking out the balance in promises to pay “ some time next week.” The cash book shows, however, just what the cash books of all new newspaper concerns must show, —the exact state of the subscription account. Hot desiring to lacerate the feelings of the gentleman who is amusing himßp.lf with that expensive toy, the Jnter-Ocean, with comparisons that must be odious, we close the cash book. There’s one satisfaction in the bookkeeping of a concern like the Aietoa and Inter-Ocean. Ho matter how wmall the subscription-list is, onecan always blow about its immensity, long as peo ple can be found to pay tho piper; and when no body can be found to pay the piper it can’ bo charged to the account. .It must have been highly satisfactory, for example, to Mr. —-, ono of the reporters, to find himself a bloated capi talist to tho extent of $646.25, as by tho lodger he appears to have been at one period. Another reporter might have passed his leisure moments in pleasantly contemplating tho spectacle of. his wealth—on the books. He was for four months the happy possessor of • a . credit of $197. Payments of one dollar at a time reduced that balance to a small sum afterwards, but that doesn’t destroy the beauty of that sort of bookkeeping.. If one fails to get the money, he has at least the consolation of reflecting that the money stands to his credit, and that he is a capitalist to that extent. The Hews stockholders are liable for double the amount subscribed, by the laws of this State, and they will, therefore, bo called upon to pro vide another $37,500. Tho liabilities of the Company, unpaid, amount to about SIO,OOO, and as soon as they have all been proved up, an as sessment will be made on the stockholders. Some will pay. .and some will fight, and one or two are worthless, but there seems no reason to doubt the necessary amount to pay ail debts in full,* under any circumstances. With respect to the liability of stockholders, Gross’ Statutes, 1869, page 131, Sec. 9, (laws of 1857. 163,18 Feb., §9, Sea. 763), have the fol lowing: Liability of Stockholders.—AU the stockholder* ofj every such company shall bo severally individually lia ble to the creditors of tho company to an amount equal to the amount of stock held by them, respect ively, for all debts and contracts made by such com pany, prior to the time tr hen the whole amount of its capital stock shall have been paid in, and a certificate thereof made and filed as hereinafter mentioned. .The Company was formed under this law. The whole amount of its capital has never been paid in, and the certificate has never been filed. Several decisions in this State have established that under these circumstances the subscribers are liable for the entire amount of stock sub scribed to the creditors, no matter how much has been absorbed by the concern; and even if the suits should fail under this act, the stock holders can be sued separately as copartners.

It appears that the boss pnddler was dis charged about c mouth ago for just reasons, and that his successor, a Gorman, made himself obnoxious to bis associates. He .did not act like a “man,” and honco his associates notified the Superintendent that either he (the boss puddler) or they must close work. The President of the -Company, Mr. John M./Aycr, was. informed of the difficulty, and yesterday went to tho mill to adjust it. The foreman and the puddlers were gathered together, and , both sides were heard. The latter three charges against' the foreman : 1. That he asked for the “ swarth2. That heasked.for another man’s furnace; 3. That he slandered hia fellow-workmen. As to the first charge : The “ swarth ” consists of the borings and turnings of. machine-shops. It is very easy to work, and hence every puddler, If he could, would like to secure it for his fur nace. The testimony (not under oath) showed that tho foreman had asked the Superintendent if he was entitled to it. This, it was claimed, was a violation of the rules of the Union, which said that tho “ swarth” belonged to tho oldest puddler. Tho second charge was not sustained. The third was fully proven. It is a serious matter to slander one’s character, and tho pud dlers seemed to bo very sensitive upon the point. What is technically known as a “ heat ” is a mass of iron weighing 450 pounds. The forman had reported that 1,400 pounds were used in two “.heats,” when the men had had in fact only 1,200 pounds in their furnaces. As they .were responsible for the quantity reported, if only 1,000 in weight came out it would look as if they had stolen the deficiency. Tho foreman’s ex planation was very lamo, and ho was caught in several falsehoods. He urged that, because he had not paid a fine of $25 imposed by the Union, they were determined to get rid of him. The men claimed that that was untrue; if he had acted like a man and hot a sneak, they would have had nothing to say against him. Mr. Ayer patiently heard the statements of both sides, and, the foreman desiring to resign, he was per mitted to go. One of the castings at the mill broke on Thursday; it will be replaced to-day, and work will be commenced again on Monday morning. . .$38,200 THAT’S ALL RIGHT, SIR. A common and hot very agreeable eight was Been yesterday, near the police headquarters. It' was a Times reporter. His head was bent down, and concealed beneath an umbrella. Ho wished' to gain access to Secretary Ward’s room, without going through the office of the Board. Season: He did not want to meet Com missioner Sheridan at close quarters. The exterior door of Dr. Ward’s room was closed, and the unpleasant apparition, still holding np the umbrella to conceal its face, entered the office of the Board. Mr. Sheridan approached it.. Eeaaon: He wanted to see that Times reporter. Mr. Sheridan, after dodging round the umbrella for some moments, finally obtained a view of the apparition’s face. “Ha!” said Mr. Sheridan. The reporter also said “ Ha,” but not so loud or so pleasantly. “Did yon write that dirty, scurrilous para graph about mo in the Times on yesterday?” said Mr. Sheridan. “I don’t know as I am obhged to tell you who wrote it: you’d better go and see Mr. Storey, if you want to find out,” politely but tremulously replied the unpleasant apparition. “ Oh never mind,” said the urbane gentleman, in his most seductive tones, “I am fully satis fied that you were the worthless scoundrel who wrote it. „ “ That’sallright, that’sallnght,” said the reporter, rapidly, looking to the door, “ that s allrightMisterSheridan.” “Well, now,” said Mark, smiling with the most perfect tranquility, “I don’t care much about the item, you know, but I don’t like to have such a puppy as you narking at my heels. “ That’sallrigbtMr.Sheridan,” promptly put in the unpleasant”-apparition. “That’sall rightsir. GoaudseeMr.StoreyMr.Sheridan.” Yes, and if I did,” replied Mr. Sheridan, with the most gentle suavity ever expressed on a human countenance within the last 1837 years, «i could just tell him what a very worthless and low follow you are.” . ~ “ That’sallright, that’sallnght, again said the reporter, and, the umbrella closing with a snap, his coat-tails vanished in less than four seconds. A “ GHOST ” TO BE DISGRACED. ■ Architect Bankin applied to the Board of Po lice yesterday to get a permit to obtain an en gine from the Fire Department to pump the wa ter from the foundations of the newJQovemment building. Commissioner Sheridan said that en gines were liable to serious injury in pumping water out of foundations. Mr. Bankin said that it would only take two hours to pump, andit would occupy two days to do it by hand. Ho would take care of the engine. It was agreed to pass the following resolution: Buolved, That the Government have an engine to pump out the foundations of the new building; and the Marshal will see that the order is carried out. FUNNY WAY OF TREATING A JURY. It is a well-known fact, attested in ancient mythological lore, that the lyre of Orpheus could educe rapturous encores from such callous sub stances as stone, and bricks, and mortar. Of the inefficiency of music to arouse a feeling of sym pathy among modem mortals, who are evidently framed of colder, less unpressionsbls stuff than THE CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE 1 : SATURDAY, MAY 10, 1873 ancient building material, an evidence was pro duced in Judge Porter’s Court on Thursday .evening... A jury was locked up. It was gett ing near six o’clock, and 44 Judge,” the bailiff, began <io long *for the domestic health and his supper, A • brilliant idea struck him; “Music hath charms to soothe the savage breast,” even for a juryman, he thought, and m an instant a pair of itinerant, musical Italians was obtained and placed at tho jury-room door, with instructions to play through their choicest repertoire. They did so, for an hour, hut whether the jury had “no car,” or from what ever reason, tho stratagem failed, and only yes terday morning did they leave tho-prison to in form the Court that they could not agree. .It is a pity that so ingenious a device proved such a signal failure. , , ~ A BUTCHERS’ TEA PARTY. A Queer Gathering: In Spurgeon’s Xoh. eruadci . From the London Daily Kexce. A very remarkable spectacle might have been witnessed in the basement of Mr. Spurgeon’s Tabernacle,- tho other evening. About 1,200 butchers, mostly youug journeymen, merry as children, took tea together. It was the eighth celebration of what has for some time come to be knowjPas the Butchers’ Festival. Eight years ago Air. Henry Varley, himself • then a butcher,. hut now a well-known conductor of. popular services, invited 100 of his calling to a friendly tea meeting. The majority of the in vited guests, as they afterward explained, deem 'edthat a trick was to be played upon them, and therefore tho party consisted of 40 only. The next year, however, no suspicion was rife, and . thedifficulty was how to provide for tho numbers assembled. Since then the scheme has grown year by year, until, in 1872, nothing leas than tho. Metropolitan Tabernacle would suit the requirements of tho fqasters. Mr. Spurgeon foil at once, and generously, into the plan, and the Easter Tuesday butchers’ festival at Newington Butts is now a recognized institu tion. The lecture-rooms, class-rooms, school rooms, and offices below stairs at the Tabernacle are quite a small town in their extent and. num ber of thoroughfares, and in the quantity of in formation and directions liberally printedon tho walla to prevent a wayfarer from losing himself. These large rooms wore full of tea-drinkers.. With tho exception of a few ladies presiding at the tables, it :wos found necessary to limit the attendance to the sterner sex. That they were butchers, pure and simple, no man in his senses who glanced at their hands and faces oould donht; doubt though ho reason ably might, if hia attention had been confined to the faultless broadcloth and neckties they wore. All tho types of the order were there. Tho smart youth who, shining and bailees, shoots round suburban comers behind a plump little trotting pony, handled the plum-cake as deftly as to-day ho will handle thq reins. The mild, ruddy-faced giant, bashfully passing his tea-cup, was just tho man you would select for felling a prize ox. The dapper comrade who questioned him touching the milk and sugar, will, in duo time, politely sell at the ruling high prices, tho fish which hie friend has killed. The gathering was cosmopolitan in other senses, too; for. the master-man, whose cheque is a bank-note at Snithfield, sat next to a lowly slaughter-man, aud pressed more cold beef upon the porter, who would, in tho course of a few hours, he staggering tinder the weight of afresh carcas. Yet, rough and ready os many of these men were, there was nothing boisterous and nothing vulgar in their conduct, except, indeed, to tho superfine soul to whom ai\y tea-table must bo vulgar where jLISO pounds of meat, 5 cwt. of broad, and 6 cwt of cake are made to vanish like chaff before tho wind. • • ’ The area of tho Tabernacle was, later in the evening, reserved for the butcher-guests, while the galleries were crowded with a mixed audi ence. . Mighty was the cheer when Mr. Spurgeon and Mr. Yarley ascended the rostrum to open the public meeting which was to supplement the tea. Little time was lost in beginning. Twelve hundred butcher-men singing in full volume of sound, and perfect tune and time, “There is a fountain filled with blood,” was at least a novel ty. The, hymn was followed by a prayer from Mr. Spurgeon, a prayer adapted to tho compre-’ tensions of the congregation. It bod much ref erence to the market-place, and itp idlers, and inculcated the necessity of honesty and industry in it. The reverend gentleman invoked a divine blessing upon tho shambles, and asked that, though some of his congregation might be drivers of bullocks, they should not'live, or die like brutes. A master butcher named Venables came forward when the speech-making began, and, as the product of ponce subscriptions from the workingmen of the trade, pre sented Mr. and Mrs. Tarley ond ; their eon with some handsomely-bound books. Then came sensible addresses - of thanks and advice from Mr. Yarley.. The speaker who succeeded him was introduced as a gentleman who could either kill a pig or preach a sermon— as tho Bov. W. Cuff, once a student at the pas tor’s college, now a Baptist minister in tho coun try. It was, of course. Mr. Spurgeon who in this quaint style described the young speaker, and * the butchers brought down the house when tho reverend humorist laid it down as an indisputable proposition that every butcher could drive a horse and cart, and that if anybody could make a rocking-horse go 16 miles an hour, ho was tho individual. "When it came to Mr. Cult’s turn, ho manifested no desire to deny the soft impeach ment as to the pig-sticking, but entered coldly into his past experience m the various branches of tho profession. Mr. Spurgeon, after a few amusing anecdotes, made a serious appeal to tho butchers not to lose sight of the paramount claims of Christianity, enforcing it by a happy reference to what once took place at the Smith field they knew sowell. If the Jehus of the trade, as he called them, only took tho advice be gave in the matter of cart-driving, the hospitals would have less work, and the list of fatal acci dents would be minus numerous entries. All tho speakers were listened to attentively, and a more appreciative audience no speaker could hare. Tbe Trent Difficult,-. Another story of the solution of the Trent difficulty is told by a Washington correspondent of the Philadelphia Press: There is better au thority than either Mr. Adams or Mr. Welles for saying that neither the Secretary of the Navy, nor of State, was the author of that diplomacy. The nows of the capture of Mason and Slidell was so sudden and so unexpected that for a time the entire Administration was at a loss to know what to do. Mr. Lincoln, of course, consulted with his Cabinet Ministers, especially with his Secretary of State. With all his ignorance of foreign affairs, of which Mr. Adams accuses him, he saw that so grave an event would, in the state of feeling then existing in Great Britain, probably involve us in trouble. But the great question was how to dispose of it. In this, as in many an other emergency, Mr. Lincoln sought the advice of Senator Sumner. That statesman out lined a plan to Mr. Lincoln which ho thought would at once protect the dignity of the Govern ment and satisfy the somewhat imperious de mand of Great Britain. The President was so impressed with it, that, in an impassioned man ner, ho said to Mr. Sumner, “ Now, please, Mr. Senator, go straight to Seward and tell him what you have told mo.” Mr. Sumner did so. The idea that Sumner suggested was subsequently embodied in the famous dispatch which was addressed to the British Cabinet, though the language was Mr. Seward’s. By invitation of Mr. Lincoln, Mr. Sumner was present at the Cabinet meeting where this dispatch was finally considered,’ and his opinion was sought as eagerly as that of any other gentleman present. These facts destroy a little of that romance of Mr. Adams which repre sents Mr. Seward as coming to the Cabinet with his dispatch already prepared without having consulted any person, and with its having been accepted, without discussion, as the views of the Government. It is not my intention to detract from the just renown of Mr. Seward, but some thing is due, also, to those who upheld his hands and strengthened his heart in the great conflict to sustain the Union. Fast Railroad Time. The Hartford CourarU has recently inter viewed some railroad men, and publishes the in formation thus obtained. On the point of fast driving it says: 11 Superintendent Davidson said he never yet run an engine without cars attached as fast as .it could go. The stories about an engine run ning eighty or ninety miles an hour are absurd. We have as good engines as any road in the countrv, and there are not many that can run over a mile a minute with a light train. An en gineer who is getting all he con ont of his ma chine is often very apt to find the second-hand of his watch come around just a little be'fore the mile-post is passed. There is an impression preva lent that an enginewill go faster with two or three cars behind, just to steady it. This is a fallacy. Every ounce of weight detracts from speed. The express-trains on this road used to run faster than they do now, but it didn’t pay. In 1854. just before the Sunday night mail-train was put on there was an effort made by the fodr roads forming a conneotingline between New York and Boston to see how fast a train could run. The train consisted of only two cars, and no passen gers were carried. On this road, the engine “New York," B. H. Hunt, engineer, on the train’s trial trip, ran from Springfield to Hart ford, twenty-six miles, in thirty minutes, three minutes being lost in slowing down over the bridge at Warehouse Point. From Hartford to Meriden, eighteen mil&s, the time was twenty-two . minutes, and from Meriden to New .Haven, a like; distance, twenty minutes. It was certainly a great achievement* for an"engine with a 11-inch cylinder,: 20-inch' stroke, and wheel. After permanent arrangements were made for the train, each road was obliged to keep up tho time-table or forfeit S3OO on each occasion when it was to blame in ■tho delay. On the Boston & Albany Boad the fifty-four miles between Springfield and Worces ter were run bytho engine Whistler. IG-inch cylindcr t 22-inch stroke, and driving wheels, in llftj-cigbt minutes. Owing to some mishap tho engine cu the Now York Hoad did not make good time. One of the best runs on tho road was mado by tho special train under charge of Superintendent .Been, convoying tho Grand Duke Alexis in. 1871. The engine Mercury, En gineer Patterson, made the run from New llavon to Meriden in twenty minutes, from Meriden to Hartford in twenty-two minutes, and from Hart ford to Springfield in thirty minutes.' Three or four years ago tho engine C. F- Pond drew two cars, with an excursion party, to the JEtca peat works, near Meriden, fourteen miles, in sixteen minutes, using peat as fuel. Mr. Beed’s dummy engine is probably the fastest on* the road.

Tho trial will not take place immediately, but already, it is said, Shaw is laboring under great fear, and his shrieks at times are fearful. The other night he yelled, in an entreating tone: “My wife Is clawing her cold arms around me. For God’s sake save me!” Tho only two sur viving children of the ill-fated family are now in the county-house. _ , m . —During a whole week, says the Bengal Times, the streets of Dacca have been enlivened by marriage processions, the most remarkable of which were those in honor of the marriage of two dolls belonging to the daughters of the wealthiest Hindoo citizens. The celebration of ‘these extraordinary nuptials has afforded much amusement to tbe people, whilst tho parents of tho juvenile mothers-in-law availed themselves of this opportunity to spend a few thousand rupees to satisfy the one inclination foremost in the mind of every Hindoo, —feeding the Brah mins, relatione, kinsmen, friends, neighbors, and tho poor. , . . —California, strange to say, has pone into the bad-crop promotion business. Hitherto our golden sister Commonwealth of the Pacific slope has been famous for nothing so much as taking a cheerful view of things. Promises of exten sive yields of cereals and fruits depress market prices, perhaps, and the auriferous queen of the Western coast of the continent is becoming mer cenary. This is to be regretted, but business is business, and hereafter we shall look for blight in California wheat, diseases in ditto grapes, fail ure of ditto vegetables, with tho same regularity that we now await the annual intelligence of tho ruin of all tho cotton crops in the South, theau nihilation of every pretty peach blossom in Del aware, New Jersey, and Maryland, and the ad vent of tho dostructivo.weevil In the wheat-fields of Minnesota. . . . ~ . . __Xlie Saginaw Courier states that a great many salt blocks on the river have already com menced operations, with a prospect that during the present week the manufacture of salt would be generally inaugurated in that district. In speaMng of the probable products for the coming season, it says; “The prospects aro that a larger amount of salt will be made this year than any previous season. Estimates are made at the salt office that the product will exceed barrels, and possibly reach 900,000 barrels. The larcest production any previous year was m 1871, when 760,000 was manufactured. The pro duction, no doubt, will bo controlled by the mar ket, which at this time promises well. The re ward for salt is good at $1.60.” A Shameful Exhibition. A shameful exhibition has very recently taken place in London under the especial oversight of the Marquis of Queensberry. The enter tainment was a prize-fight of the most brutal description. The arena selected was a disused chapel, now known as Grafton Hall in Soho. The lessee or the . building had understood that it was to be a sparring match, and did not know the real character of the performance until he entered the hall a short .time before the open ing He says: “I was told there were a noble Marquis, two noble Lords, and three Colonels of Her Majesty’s army in the crowd. The persona forming the meeting all appearedjto be well dressed, welWed men, with the animal strongly marked in their features.” The prize to the winner was given by the Marquis of Queens berry, and an additional sum of £IOO was raised by subscription. This young nobleman is an officer in the navy, and made himself odious dur ing our rebellion by his avowed sympathy for the South. The pugilists wore gloves, but of a yery different kind from the ordinary boxing gloves. The agony caused is greater than with the naked flat, and a man may be killed quite _*»• easily. One of the men was hammered un til in sensible, after which, by the use of stimulants, he revived enough to fight several rounds more. The backers of the loser tried to crowd in and break up the fight when they saw; their money would bo lost. Nothing seems to have been wanting to mako the fight brutal. We are told these contests are now of almost daily occurrence in London. Only a short time ago a man was killed in one of these glove-fights after it-had lasted about seventy,minutes. ' To ths Editors of the So to Tort Evening Post: For many years a race of fine Newfoundland dogs have flourished in the village where I live, each individual being characterized by some prominent excellence, , One, a noble fellow, was often employed to carry packages, and was sometimes sent to mar ked could exceed the fidelity with >• i" rf-weV' GENERAL NEWS, Three Clever Bog*. which ho performed tho business entrusted to him.' Lato one evening it was discovered there was no beefsteak for breakfast, and the dog whs sent for a supply. • H© was detained at tho-mar ket for a time, however, and, being forgotten at home, the doors were locked and tbo faintly went to bed. In the morning the dog was found seated beside tho. basket, in which the meat lay untouched under the guardianship maintained by him throughout the night. ‘ •'* Another dog worthy of honorable mention once went with a mother and her child to the village. Soon after their arrival tho little girl was burned so severely as almost to produce con vulsions. A physician, an absolute stranger, was summoned, under whose soothing remedies the girl was quieted and fell asleep, when tho doctor took his leave. An hour or two after returning to liis office ho heard an unusual noise at his door, and on opening, it found the dog seeking admission. Ho walked in and seated himself be side the physician and bcgon'licking bis hands. Then rearing himself on biH hind legs ho put bis mouth to tho man’s face, attempting to lick it, uttering all the while a low cry, and after repeat ing these demonstrations for a time walked out of the office. Doubtless, ho had pondered upon his ; young mistress* sufferings and the physi cian a efforts to relievo them, and gratitude led him thus to express his thanks. The last of 'his raco still lives, though lus course is nearly run. Ho is on terms of the ut most good-will with tho whole community, and among tho dogs acts os a kind of policeman. When anv ill-feeling arises among them and they* begin to Lark and bite, ho rushes in, and, with his immense strength, ecattors the combatants and restores quiet. Occasionally he calls on the different inhabitants of tho village, stopping for a half hour or so, his affectionate nature ami his benignant countenance always winning for him a welcome. E. F. Cazehoyia, April, 1873. California JoeJ’. . From the San Frar.cUco A Ita, During the.Rebellion, one of the characters brought to light, and who gained quite a national celebrity, was “California Joe,” one of Berdan’s sharpshooters. Joe, after the war, returned to California, and has since been leading a quiet, unobtrusive Ufa in the country, forgotten by al *most everyone, because man, nqw-a-days, must keep himself before the people if he desires to be remembered. Wo are making history too fast to look back and scan tho pages written a few years ago. Yesterday morning, while going to Oakland, one of our reporters observed a little, stoop shouldered, grizzly-haired, sharp-eyed man, of perhaps 50 years of ago, who carried in his hand a heavy rifie, in the barrel of which was the ram rod used for cleaning the gun. There was thing in the appearance of the man that caused our reporter to address him. -A conversation ensued, of which wo shall give the reader tho “Well, you see, Fm old Califomy Joe, and hain’t been doin’ much for a long time, and hey been gettin’ rusty like. I hain’t smelt blood nor had a fight of any description for so long that I really don’t know that I am fit for anything, but you see these Modocs have been'playing a very rough game onto tho people in tne North. They is good fighters, and as mean.lojins as over was seen, and I soxter think a few of their skolps would ornament my cabin. I bain’t got nary Modoc skelp, and you know my collection won’t be complete unless I kin get some Modoc bar to hang alongside tho other kinds. So, you see, I’m going to the lava beds to take a band in tbe Uttle game that is being played tbar. May be you wiU bear tho result of tho crack of Joo’s rifle, and may be the redskins will lift my bar, but one thing is certain, I’m going to give them a chance.” , Tho boat reached the opposite shore, and bidding the old man good-bye, with plenty- of luck, we saw him enter a car and disappear from view. - minister Dc Long. From the New York Sun,- The Hod. Charles E. De Long, our Minister to Japan, whoso recall has excited so much com ment, lived in Marysville, Cal.*, in 1850. At that time, DeLong was a waiter in the restaurant connected with the Western Hotolj at D and Sec ond streets. He was always ambitious to become a politician, and claimed to be a Democrat of the Jacksonian school. The guests of tho hotel were not unfrequently amused by little Charlie’s —he is about 5 feet high, and does not weigh more than 100 pounds—dissertations on tho politics of tho day. Ho was often known to lay down his tray while waiting on a customer, and begin a heated political argument. In’lßsl, when John Bigler was running as the Democratic candidate against Waldo for Governor of California, Do Long was a violent partisan of Bigler. On one occasion during the campaign an open-air Bigler meeting ' was held in front of the Western Hotel. The Eon. Jesse 0. Goodwin presided. Senator Will iam M. Gwin was speaking, and Congressman Milton B.Latham was to follow. De Long was anxious to make a speech. He circulated among the audience, and told them to “ holloa for De Long.” At the close of Senator Qwin’s speech a shout went up for De Long. Mr. Goodwin stepped to the front of tho platform and said, “ Xi Jlr. De Long is present will he please come forward.” De Long, who was in waiting at the rear of the platform, instantly mounted the ros trum, and was introduced to the audience. A breathless silence prevailed in expectancy of D© Long's’speech. Just as be he was about to be gin, a huge specimen of tho genus Pike broke tongue, and said at the top of his voice. “ Wall, I’U he gosh dumod if that ain’t the little critter who was here a minute ago, and told mo to hol loa for De Long.” Tho intending orator was completely unnerved. He stammered and hung his head. He could not say a word, and, amid the jeers of the audience, slunk off the stand. Amadeus to Ills Father# The Spanish Radical paper, El Impartial, of' the 15th inst., publishes a Spanish translation of a letter which the Duke of Aosta addressed to his father, the King of Italy, in January, 1869, after the first offer of the crown of Spain. This document (of which an English translation fol lows) throws much light on the ideas entertained hy Eon Amadeo from first to last, even before the murder of Prim: YodbMajestv: It was with extreme surprise that, for the first time and without any previous communication to mo on the subject, I hoard from your Majesty that it was seriously in con templation to confer on me the crown of Spain. On my return to Genoa I have spoken of this to my wife. She is ready to follow mo wherever I may go, to share my lot whatever it may bo. To tell your Majesty how much I love my country and how much I am willing to do for her is needless: . any sacrifice, even that of life itself, would seem light to me for her sake. But what is it that lam now asked to un dertake ? It is to rule the destiny of a country which is divided and tom to pieces by a thou sand political parties ; and a task which would he arduous to any one would be doubly so to one who, like myself, has had no experience in the difficult art of governing. The conse quence would be that I should, intact, not gov ern, but should have to submit to the dictates of those who had called me to the throne. These reasons are strong enough to induce me this very day to place in the hands of your Majesty my formal refusal to the crown of, Spain, beg ging your Majesty to transmit my decision to those whom it may concern. “Your Majesty’s affectionate son, *• Amadeo.” How Mark Twain Got a Seat. In a new local magzine—the Globe —published in Buffalo, is the following reminiscence of Mark Twain’e brief editorial career in that city: No man detested loafers more than Mr. Clem ens, and assuredly no man could be more piti less in his treatment of bores. He was vigorous in his denunciation of that class of people who aimlessly and impudently intrude their constant presence in an editorial room. One incident will perhaps, bear relating, showing how he once rebuked a party of undeeired visitors. Arriving at his office one evening about B>4 o’clock, he found it full of men—all strangers to him. They had apparently taken full possession of the room. Some were smoking, and some had their feet upon the table, and every chair in the room was occupied. With a look of disgust, Mr. Clemens hesitated for a moment in the door way and then in his peculiar way, said: “Is this the editorial room of the Express!" “Yes, sir,” promptly chorused the assem lllßG. “H—ml is it customary for the editors to sit down ?” questioned the humorist. “Yes” “certainly,” “to be sure," were the replies of the puzzled smokers. “Why do yon ask ?” said one at last. “ Because.” slowly enunciated Mr. Clemens, “ I am one of the editors of the Express, and it occurred to me that I ought to have a seat. In an instant every chair was vacated, and the men somewhat abashed, attempted to laugh the matter off-bv saying, “Ah! Mr. Clemens, that was neat.”/* Witty as usual,” etc., etc., but there was something;in.the joker’s eye that quickly told them he was in no joking frame of mind at that moment. After that, loafers were rather shy of Mark Twain. DISSOLUTION NOTICE. DISSOL DTION. The firm of Huh or. Purler 4 Co. la this day dlaaolvod by mutual consent.
