Stockholders’ moolinga ware hold yesterday to chooao Directors of tho Book Island, the Now York Control, and tho Hudson Elver Railroads, and all roanltod in tho ro-olootion of tho old Boards. Now Ydrlr City does a butter and choose busi ucaa of fifty millions of dollars a yoor, and tho dealers in that city, who number 130, have re solved to oatablißh an exchange for tho accom modation of this trado. Within a week after the commißßion of hia offense, a Now York burglar, who was caught by one of tho ladies of a house ho had entered after ho hod “tired two shots at her, has boon sentenced to thirty years’ imprisonment. Tho Railroad and Warehouse Commissioners havo prepared blanta for tho guidance of tho railroad companies of tho Slato in making tho reports which they are required by law to send tho Commissioners. Blanks asking for informa tion aro also to bo sent to the County Clerks. To keep MocDonnoll, tho Bonk of England forger, clear of any writs or other untimely In terferences by tho Now York courts, ho was token to Fort Columbus and hold there until yesterday, when ho was successfully transferred -O a steamer, ond sailed in company with tho English dotootives. Somo changes in the Civil Service rules have been proposed to the President by the now Civil Service Advisory Board. None of tho principles of this great reform are abandoned; tho modifications simply affect the way it works! Among the improvements suggested oro a prompter examination of applicants, and a fairer distribution of offices among tho different parts of tbo country. Tho Bank of England bat) raised Its rate of discount to 7 per cent, In sympathy with which movement the prico of gold has advanced a trillo in Now York, and stocks have fallen. Loss gold than usual has boon received this year by tho hank, and it takes this prudential stop to chock nuy undue drain on its reserves, which must soon ho drawn on for tho payment of tho Ala bama award, and for tho ensuing installment of ton millions sterling of the French indemnity, which will bo paid in hills of exchange on Lon don. The cholera has reached Memplds. It started in at Now Orleans about a month ago, where it carried off eleven persons in one week, and has traversed 818 miles in four weeks, leaving its deadly trail in many of tho intervening towns. In Memphis, as in Now Orleans, tho disease is aoattorod, and has no epidemic character as yet. Its ravages began in tho unclean quarters of tho negroes and lower classes, bat have not stopped there, and yesterday It carried off the United mnrouureinue Attorney of Memphis! Its oom uig in expected In Cincinnati and Louisville, and It may visit Chicago, as It has done before. Ospt. Jack and Sehonohln, tlio murderers of Con. Oanby and Oomleaionor Thomas, have boon put In Irons together, and aro hold to await tho course of tho Government. Washington •niiilaty authorities aro of opinion that they and tho other Uodooa cannot bo oilormlnalod now, although If they had boon killed when taken, Con. Davis would not have transcended his discretion. They cannot ho rogardod os' prisoners of war, as thoro was no war in any I International sonso. Tho result of tho matter will, without doubt, ho to romand thorn to tho authorities of Oregon, who will certainly make a requisition for them. Newspaper enterprise never took a more unique. or humane turn than the picnics gotten up by the 1 I Now York Times last summer, to give the I I wretched little street boys and girls of Now I York a breath of country air and a wholesome I holiday. It collected thousands of dollars for I this purpose from the public, and sent hundreds of beggar children out Into the fields who had I never soon anything greener than the dusty veg etation of the City Hall Park. It has $3,488; still on hand from the fund of last year, and will I recommence the excursions this month. A part of the fund, which Is In the hand of Trustees, is used for tho relief of the sick children of the slums. * I Foro, tbo St. Louis murderer, who killed his I brolbor-iu-law year boforo last for giying brolborly sbollor to tbs wife whom his brutal treatment bad driven away, and was aqnitlod on tbo-ground of emotional Insanity, has badsn- I other attack of that disease. Slneo bis trial bo has been living with bis grandmolbor, and at her expense, but was not long sinco turned out of doors by that lady. Ho then wont in search of his wife. Ho'mot her in St. Louis yesterday, and, upon her refusing to return to him, struck her tbroo murderous blows on tbo bead with a hatebot. The unfortunato woman is not expected to livo. Tbo Massachusetts doctors of tbo regular school who wore recently tried by tbo Massachu setts Medical Society for the offense of using homeopathic remedies in tbotr practice and found guilty, bavo boon oipollod from tbo So ciety. The nows of tbo expulsion of those sovon physicians was received with derisive laughter by the bomeopatbists now in convention at Cleve land. One of the expelled happened to bo pres ent, and ho staled that the persecution, besides everywhere creating a strong sympathy for tbo men and tbo principles assailed, bad resulted in a subscription of SIOO,OOO for tbo endowment of a homeopathic hospital in Boston. A Washington correspondent of tho Now York Sun states that it can undoubtedly bo proved that there was a conspiracy among tho Custom- House officials of Now to blood Phelps, Dodgo & 00., and that this firm can recover tho money out of which it was blackmailed. Whether a proper. Investigation of tho caso might havo this result or not, it is clearly tho duty of Phelps, Dodgo & Co. to proaocuto tho parties to this ollogod conspiracy before Con gress, and to mako Government blackmailing so odious in the oyos of tho people that It will not bo tried again. By doing this, tho firm can atono for tho cowardice which induced it to yield to tho demands of tho oliquo of informers, prosecutors, and spies, and thus sot a bonus of $271,000 upon tho blackmailing business. It seems that Mr, John Patterson, a citizen of Pennsylvania choaon to represent South Caro lina in tho United Slates Souato, is to escape an examination on tho charge of bribing msmbors of tho South Carolina Legislature—by reason of a more- technicality. Tho grand jurors of that State aro drawn to servo a year, and this year tho Jury Commissioners of Eichland District whether accidentally or purposely, drew thorn several days before tho timo fixed by low. Mr. Patterson's counsel baa objected to having his client indicted by any such Grand Jury as this. Tho old jurors ought to havo boon summoned to sorvo out another year, as tho law provides that they shall servo until now jurors qualify, but this has not boon done. So to gratify Mr. Senator. Pattoraon,' Biohland District, S. 0., must go without a Grand Jury for a year to como. In an article translated from tho Freie Pressc and published in The Imuran of yesterday, it was slated that Mr. H. Barber, Jr., having with drawn as a candidate for Circuit Judge, “Mr. Julius Rosenthal determined too late to take it [tho candidacy] up, and appeared to bo not in tho field at all." The intimation is, that Mr. Rosenthal was a voluntary candidate for a Judgeship. Mr. Rosenthal desires ns to say that ho was not a candidate. The misappre hension arose from tho circumstance that some of Judge Booth’s friends wont into certain wards rad proposed to tho Gormans that they should vote for Mi-. Rosenthal, their purpose being to divert votes from Ashton. Mr. Rosenthal’s name was used in a good cause, to which ho can hardly object, but it should bo known that ho was in no sense a candidate, and had not, on the day of election, tho faintest idea that his name was used anywhere. I Returns of tho Supremo Court election in tho Fifth District come in with provoking delay and incompleteness. Nothing has been hoard from Putnam County, or from Marshall County, with tho exception of one small town. Even from tho other eleven counties of tho district tho returns ore of little value, as many of the towns iu tho iutorior hovo not yot reported thojr vole. So far as now known, Bureau, Hon demon, Mercer, Orundy, ond Peoria Counties give Craig on aggregate majority of 3,601: Knox, LaSalle, Warren, Henry, Stork, and Woodford give Judge Lawrence a majority of 1,598. This makes Craig 003 ahead. Another calculation claims for Craig a majority of 1.500. It is not to bo denied that those figures, imperfect ns they are, aro om hums of Judge Lawrence's defeat j and, if snob prove to bo tho ease, it is the most brutal outrage over perpetrated in the Slate of Illinois under tuo auspices of universal suffrage. The Chicago produce markets wore compara tively quiet yesterday. Moss pork was dull, and a shade easier at 516.50@16.00 cash, and 516.85 seller July. Laid was dull, and 60 per 100 lbs lower, at 58.d6@8.60 cash, and «8.70@8.76 seller July.

There waa no decided change In cattlo and shoop. PARTIAL ABOLITION OP THE PADS SYSTEM. Tlio movement among tho Western railroad managers for tho abandonment of tho pass sys tem has rosnllod, as provlonsly announced, In a formal compact among a largo num ber of those running west and south and north from Chicago to out off nud can cel all passes after tho lot of July uoxt. Tho only exceptions made oro in favor of employes passing over tho linos with which thoy aro con nected on business of tho roods, and passes Is sued under eontroots between various.roads to exchange for tho year. Tho railroads’that aro committed to this now departure ore the Chica go, Quincy, the Chicago Sc Al ton, Chicago Sc Northwestern, Milwaukee Sc St. Paul, Illinois Control, Chicago, Kook Island Sc Paolllo, St. Louis, Vnudolia Sc Terre Hanto, Ohio Sc Mississippi, Danville Sc Vincennes, Oilman, Clinton Sc Springfield, and tho Chicago & lowa. Tho officers of those roads aro pledged by their recent action to re turn tho passes which thoy hold and to refuse to issue passes to any of the hitherto privileged classes,—Congressmen, legislators, railroad men, hotel men, newspaper men, clergymen, and largo shippers. At tho present outlook, it Is not probable that tho Eastern roads will outer into tho compact, and ns long ns tho Pittsburgh, Eort Wayne Sc Chicago, tho Lake Shore Sc Michi gan Southern, and tho Michigan Central Beads hold out against it, tho reform wUI bo far from complete. Wo hope that thoy will eventually Join tho now departure and give It a. fair trial. In tho meantime, It should bo a mat ter of honorable emulation between the roads that have mado tho compact to observe it strictly, and press tho other corporations Into tho service by demonstrating tho advantages of tho now rule, Mr. Ololand, tho General Passenger Agont of tho Pittsburgh* Port Wayno Road at Chicago, ““ railroad man of good position and largo ox porionco,—ia not a disoipio of tho now faith, and ho mahoa a very fair statement of hia aido of tho ease. Ho aaya that not a quarter tho num ber of passes are iaanod now by ilrat-olaaa roada that wore iaanod a fow yoara bach, and ho believes that, under tho judicious management of the paaa system that now prevails witlxall tho boat roada, tho stockholders aro not defrauded, be cause a railroad roooivoa a fair compensation l or lho gratuities it bestows. Ho holds that tho exchange system among tho railroads is a more matter of convenience, and, it it wore tho rule of every railroad official to pay money in traveling over another road, it would in tho end amount to tho same thing, as tho money would simply bo tamed over in about equal proportions from ono to tho other. Ho says that first-class roads, including that which ho represents, have already abandon ed tho practice of issuing passes to legislators and to shippers, and that tho Courtesies of tho road are now extended to those who render ser vice of a kind that cannot woli bo paid for in any other manner. Tho answer to this is, that, oo long as tho pass syatom'provnils, it ia subject to very serious abuse by mismanagement and favoritism, and that tho services which cannot bo paid for with money as a general thing ought not to bo rondorod. The most ready objection which ia made to tho abolition of tho pass system is that tho now rule will not ho faithfully observed. . If it is not so observed, then it is no mlo; and those who have adopted it have merely made themselves a laughing stock, and, instead of sotting a virtu ous example to others, they have merely illus trated their own inability to adhoro to one. Of course, tho roads which have united in tho agree ment will watch each other like hawks, so that when ono of them relapses tho others may lose no time in relapsing also. Wo shall esteem it a favor if tho road which first detects its rival road in violating tho mlo will notify us. It will make a first-rate newspaper item, and tho farm ers wiUincontinently “go for" tho offending corporation. THE WADWOHTH TRAGEDY. Uqlobs tho details of tho murder of M. T. Wal worth, tho novoliat, by his son, have boon mia atatod, it waa ono of tho moat brutal and nn- Jus tillable crlmoa on record. Thoro waa nothing in tho ciroumatancoa of tho family quarrel, which haa bad thla fatal roault, to oxcuso tho murder or to place young Walworth in any other position than that of a brutal naaoaain. Tho circumstances of this tragedy and the poaition of tho family iu society aro auoh that a public in terest will bo excited in tho case, hardly second to that which followed tho murder of Fiak. M. T. Walworth, tho murdered man, although hia liter ary reputation never exceeded very limited local boundaries, waa well known in society, lie waa a man of tho Willie typo, although ho did notpos aoaaatitho of Mi*. Willia’ intellectual ability The JTome Journal, Mr. Willis' old paper, waa, in fact, tho.modmm which ilrst introduced Mr. Walworth to tho public. Mis novels and newspaper stories however, were of tho cheap and popular Ofdor, and, but for bis untimely fate, his name would scarcely have been known outside hie immediate cotorlo of admirers. Ho was highly connected, however. Ills father Chancellor Walworth, waa ono of tho most dis tinguished Citizens of Now York, had achieved a national reputation in Jurisprudence, and waa idea lined with many of tho more important religious and charitable movements of his day Ho waa pre-eminently a aocioty man, and, like many other men who make society life and tuft hunting a business, ho had family troubles Ho parted with his wife, a- daughter of the late Don. Harding, of this Stale, aomo years ago, and, according to tho statement of tho aon, who espoused tho cause of hia mother In the unfortunate quarrel, ho had repeatedly aont her threatening and inaultiug letters. Some of those letters wore intercepted and road by the aon, and ono of them induced him to go from Saratoga to Now York City, where Ids father was engaged in some Masonic business. Arrived thoro, tho sou aont his father tho following notoi "8 o’clock—l want to try and settle some family matters. Call at the Sturtovaut House after on hour or two. If lam not there I will leave word at tho office. P. H. wonm" Tho family matter which ho wished to settle, according to his own statement, was to exacts promise from his father that he would i BOnd no moro tlirontonlng letters to bin mother, i The two mot, And the hoii, drawing a pistol, told 1 his father to promlao him ho would cease that 1 Bort of correspondence. Tho father promluod that no moro such loiters should bo written. Tho young man had accomplished his purpose. But, as If determined to provoke his father or to find somo occasion for tho use of violence, tho young man continued tho conversation on family mat ters, which naturally enough led to 111-feeling and remarks from the father, which tho son doomed Insulting to himself, whereupon ho fired four shots at him, two of which wore of a fatal character. Tho flimsy excuse made hy tho son

Is, thot ho saw his’fathor drawing a pistol, and that ho anticipated an assault by firing at him Aral. This is tho samo plea thot was mode by Stokes and has boon made a thousand times over by other murderers. In this case, the shallowness of tho excuse Is shown by tho fact thot, when tho body was examined by tho Ooro* fior, thoro was no weapon at all on tho person. After tho murder, tho son, with tho utmost sang froid, walked down stairs, informed tho clerk of tho hotel of what ho hod done $ wont out and telegraphed hla relatives, ond, after ho hod given himself up to tho authorities, expressed no regret, except for tho terrible distress it must occasion his mother. The miserable man, therefore, had succeeded in accom plishing nothing*by the wanton murder of his father except to add to tho griefs of his mother already existing, and Intensify them by Imposing upon her a now sorrow and embittering her life until Its close. Among tbo snobs of Now York, to which oloao bo belonged, ho will gain Bomo reputation as a gaUant young follow, who bod tbo courage to rooont an insult, ond ho will doubtlooa ocldovo tbo Bnmo cheap oort of notoriety which has I given Stokoo his bravado and asßuranco ainco tho murder of Flak. Bight-minded pooplo, how ever, will fall to regard this murdor in ony other j light than that of a cowardly dood, porpotratod without a shadow of excuse. Ho invited his father to tho Sturtovont House, prepared to kill him unless tho latter would accodocto certain conditions, Tho father did so, nnd oven then the son did not refrain from his bloody pur pose. ■ Even if tho father had not consented to cease his threatening letters, thoro was no suf ficient provocation for tho dood. His mother had powerful ond influential friends, who wore amply able to protect her against throats from any quarter. Wo can see no feature. of tho cnee—and the son has made his statement with reference to tho murdor—which furnishes tho shadow of an apology. It was simply a coward ly and brutal murder. It is not a murdor either which is exceptional la character. Tho knifo and tho pistol have, during tho past two or throe years, become tho favorite instruments of set tling family bickerings nnd misunderstandings of every sort between men, especially in that class to'which young Walworth belongs.' Stokes and Simmons sot tho fashion, and it has boon followed to an alarming orient. To shoot a dofonsoloaa man upon slight provocation, or upon no provocation at all, used to ho oonaidr orod an not of brutal cowardice. Now it la^el down ns something which shows manly spirit and nerve. That snob a sentiment should exist in any class of society is simply alarming, and that it should ho found in what is supposed to ho the higher class of society shows a de- pravity not far removed from tho brul ish cruelty of tho savage. That sontl rnont has to ho corrected before any effective social reform can ho instituted in this direction, and the moat conclusive way of correcting it would bo tbo exemplary punish- mout of the offenders. The latest dispatch, wiiiqh Intimates that tho murderer will bo de- fended upon the plea of emotional insanity, is in keeping with all tho other facts in tho case. Of itself, it is a sufficient commentary upon tho want of provocation for tho deeds. Tho emo tional Insanity dodge Is tho first resort of this class of criminals who take the law into their own Lauds. WHO IS IT THAT STEALS FROM THE INDIANS To the Editor of The Chicago Tribune : Sin; Since tho Modoc troubles, thoro hog boon more or loss discussion by tbo papers to relation to tho Indians, tbo bonoaty of tbclr Agents, 4c. There is no doubt but tho Indians, in some cases bavo boon defrauded by their Agouta; but the query is, At whose door lies tho blame ? Having bad occasion of late to visit tbo northern port of Wisconsin, permit mo to glvo some interesting facts ao tboy bavo transpired among tho Indiana of the Qrcon Bay Agency. Tbo land of tbo Monomonoo, Stoobbridgo, and Munsoo reservations is very poor,-so poor that no white man of ordinary enterprise would ovor think to gam a Ilvoliboodby tbo cultivation of tbo sou. Iho real value of those reservations con sists in tho pine timber, of which thoro are largo quantities. This timber is, and baa boon for a sorioa of years, a constant source of inlriguo and peculation by what is termed tbo “Pino-Ring " as tbo following tranaoctlona will show • A soorot contract woa mado between tho Sachems and Councilors of tbo Stookbridgo and Munsoo Indians of tho first part, and Mr. A. G Rockwell, of Oshkosh, of tbo second part, for I tbo timber which stood on 1,000 acres, for tbo sum of 84 059.00. A corlain Congressman was interceded by tbo Chiefs and Headmen of tboso tribes to aoouro tbo fulflUmont of this oon- When this contract was referred by (ho De partment to Mr. Biohardson, the Agent, for his •M™™ l - protested that the above amount nnriod I ?n U n ßttn V>* or f° nmol ‘ timl)or , and BO ro i l H° Do P artra °ht. Subsequently, a Bpcoial Agent was sent out from Washington to examine, estimate, and report in regard fo tho ‘tabor embraced in sa?d contract? S?er I ’ 1 7 ad .? 10 ". wlO * m d oxporiouco in tiio making of estimates of lumber, and they sent in a statement of their estimates of the lumber which was embraced in this contract, that it would exceed B,000,0(10 foot. In his report to the Department, ho recommended that the tim ber.ho sold for 82.35 per thousand foot, on tho basis of 3,000,000 foot. This was approved hy the Department, and Mr. Bichardson wos in structed to enter into contract with Mr.-Book men on those terms, Tho Agent was offered, and could have sold this very timber for 84 per thousand, and good Judges have since estimated it to exceed 0,000 000 foot. This limber, when it came into market—l was told by good au thority—was sold by a Congressman, aud. when inquiry was made why ho sold it, to re plied i “Hadn't I a right? I furnished tho money to pay for it." By this operation. l c i2 1 S!!S‘ 1 y„ m “ (l 0 tllo nont little sum of 817,260. Query : Was it tho Indian Agent or tho Congressman ? b A socoud contract, authorized by the Indian Department, was made by Mr. Biohardson in behalf of tho United Stales of the first part and a Mr. Jones, of the second port, for pine-timber on the Menomonee reservation, in tho vloinitv of the south branch of tho Oconto Bivor. where the Pino is of loss value hy some 83 per thousand than in tho first contract, for 83 per thousand? Mr. Jones, in good faith, expended 83,000 in cutting roads, building camps, etc., preparatory to winter s operations, when this sumo Congress man put in an appearance, and tho contract was set aside.
