This loaves Spain, for the moment, with no other head than the Cortes. Stokes has boon unanimously granted a now trial by tho Court of Appeals of Now York. Tho lower Court is hold to have orrcdln charging tho Jury that the law presumed murder from the fact of killing, throwing tho burden of defense on tho accused, and in tho exclusion and admis sion of some of the testimony. Bowlob Brothers find themselves able to pay fifty coots on tho dollar. This releases thorn under tho Bankruptcy law from further liability, but tboy havo Issued a circular to tboir creditors la which they promise not to shelter themselves behind tho law, and pledge tho payment of their debts In full. The ordinance passed by the Common Coun cil of San Francisco to subject all Chinese pris oners in tho County Jail to tho dishonor of hav ing their bonds shaved, has been vetoed by tho 'Mayor of that city, on the ground that it made unjust distinctions between prisoners, and was in violation of the treaties with China and of tho laws of tho United States. Another ordi nance taxing Chinese laundrymon sls a quarter was likewise disapproved. Tho lowa Press Association, now meeting at Cedar Rapids, bos passed a resolution condemn ing the practice some editors have of accepting free posses from railroads. Who some of those editors aro may bo judged from tho announce ment made on tho 2Bth ult., in reference to this very mooting, by President Troyuor, of tho Asso ciation, who publicly gave notice thot all lowa editors who desired to attend it would bo fur nished passes by tho lowa roads, and that thoso who wished to go to Chicago would be taken there, froo of ohargo, by tho Chicago & North western Company.' Stokes, tho murderer of Fisk, as was very gen erally expected m Now York, has boon granted a now trial upon technical errors by the Court of Appeals. Ho has already, ad it will bo remem bered, had two'trials and boon convicted on each. If there is any truth in tho old adage that tho third time never fails, ho may get his deserts this time. Tbo cose as it stands is either a reflection upon tho legal abilities of tho prosecution, which cannot try so door a case as this without committing technical orrore ovor and over again, or olso it is tantamount to a con fession that justice is of no avail in Now York City. The disposition of tho Stokes case begins to look very much Uko a farco. Somebody in Washington boo promulgated a carefully-written dispatch explaining the posi tion of President Grant and tho Windom Com mittee in reference to tho transportation, ques tion. President Grant Is shown not to have com mitted himself to any scheme or oven expression of opinion. In'unusually felicitous language bo Is said to have resisted any attempt thus to involve him, “ in' tho silont, effectual manner so familiar and-unwolcomo to political operators of tho present ora.” -As to tho Committee, san guine agriculturists aro warned not to oxpect an instantaneous solution of thoir troubles from its labors. Its powers aro only advisory, and its work will bo but ono of tho many stops that must bo taken in their bohalf; A zealous friend of J. 'Young Scammon at tempted, yesterday, to bring the Swodouborgian Convention at Cincinnati to a vote of confidence in his integrity, - but did not succeed. Resolutions wore introduced declaring that ill tho charges affecting his honesty wore incon sistent with his character as a professing Chris tian and a generous contributor to tho;funds of tho Church, and that thoy had moreover been proved to bo falsa by the investiga tions of his. own Booioty, and by {the inquiries of • several . individual members of tho Convention, numbers of whom would eoom to havo boon diligently carrying on inde pendent and private investigations of thoir own. Thoso*reso]utions were tabled. They woro then reconsidered and a substitute proposed, and finally tho wholo matter was withdrawn ; all rec ord of it was expunged from the Journal, aud tho newspaper reporters woro bogged to suppress all reference to it. Scarcely has the MaoMahon Government taken Us Beat when it begins to resort to tho same sinister moaua that Louis Napoleon' used to control tho provinces ami swell the enormous majorities of his plebiscites. Garabotta yester day produced In tho French Assembly a copy of * Ministerial order dated Juno 4, cloven days after MaoMahon’s election, in which tho Pro jects of departments aro recommended to use subsidies and other secret moans for tho control of tho provincial press, In the good old Bona partlsfc way. Minister Boulo, of the Interior, acknowledged that ho had issued such a circular ami assunysd all tho responsibility of having dona so. No report is given of the scene that onsuod, but It must have been one of tho stormiest that oyor raged at YwsaUlog. It wag concluded by a vote of confidence in tho Gov emmont passed by tho satisfactory majority of 890 to 815. This la a much stronger veto than that, which overthrow Thiorfl, whooo Ministry was defeated by 800 to 814. . The Chicago produce markets wore' generally 'stronger yesterday. Moss pork was quiet, and 10@20o per brl higher, closing at $16.00@16.86 cash, and $16.00@10.10 Boiler July.

Tho office-holders' organs lu lowa are whining most piteously over tho determination of tho farmers of that State to toko political matters Into their own hands at tho election this fall. Tho Davenport Gazette is berating tho farmers aud tho Grangers (or undertaking to place a can didate of their own in tho field for Governor, when the Republican party Is ready to nominate Gov. Carpenter for re-oloction, and lot tho farm ers vote for him. Tho Ocuetle says : Gov. Carpenter Is tho Republican Governor of tho State, and therefore ho must bo lied down. It matters not how much ho has used the Influence of his position in favor of tho farmer—how often ho has ad vocated their interests from tho rostrum—he is tho Republican Governor, and tho probable nominee for another term, and therefore be mast bo robbed of his > good name, aud made to appear as tho enemy of those for whojtn ho has always manifested friendship. Can the farmers, can the Grangers, afford to treat. their friends in high station in that way 7 Will theyehmd by and see those who can do them most good slandered and sacrificed because they happen to bo Republicans whom tho party has honored, and who have honored tho party by their faithfulness? And yet tho, Grangers keep on (heir way. Those office-holders and party organs refuse to boo what is evident to tho wholo country, that moro party allegiance hangs very lightly on tho consciences of men of any party. There never was a time when political parties as such wore hold in more contempt than they are now. It is notorious that neither tho Democratic nor Re publican party has a distinctive policy of any kind; tho two organizations aro hold together for no other purpose thou to elect tho managers to lucrative offices. Bo far as railroad extortions and tho aggressions of monopolists aro con cerned, those office-holders have not tho slightest interest or concern. Their pecuniary interests aro on tho side of tho corporations, because tho latter aro free with the money of other people, and.novor hesitate to buy official favor when it can bo bought. Tho farmers of Livingston County in this State, in their declaration of opposition to steals of all kinds, expressed tho sentiments of tho wholo people at this time. They are tired of be ing used at election after olcctiou for no other purpose than to olovato. 'this or that gang of oifico-BCokors to commit depredations on tho Stato Treasury. Tho farmors of lowa aro a largo majority of tho population of that Stato; divided as Democrats and Republicans they are powerless against tho politicians; united as farmers, for tho attainment of a com mon end, and tho destruction of common op pression, they can take possession of tho Gov ernment of tho State, and of nearly every county in tho Stato; they con elect four-fifths of tho members of both branches of tho Legis lature, and can elect all tho members of Con gress from that Stato. Divided, they must re main as they are, slaves of monopolists and of fice-holders ; united os a party of farmers, thoy become masters and directors and makers of tho law. This is readily understood by every farm er of tho West, and thoso people so long victimized are not likely to bo driven from their purpose by tbo throats or appeals of postmasters and office-trading politicians. WOOL AND CORN, Wo last wobk called tho attention of tho pro ducers of com, and of all othor classes of pop ulation who live npon tho wages of thoir dally labor, to tho tax extorted annually to bo paid as bounties to tho manufacturers of iron and cotton goods. In that article wo showed tho following facts: That in 1870 there woro in all tho United States 135,639 persons employed In tho manufac ture of cotton, and 180,011 in tho manufacture of iron; that tho wholo number employed in these two manufactures was 265,380, and that tho capi tal employed in tho two industries was but $920,- ' 829,000. Against those wo presented tho figures of agricultural capital and labor in Illinois, as follows: Hands employed making colloa goods in United States..'. 133,309 Uuudfl employed making Iron in United States.... 130,011 HtudH employed on cotton and iron goods iu United Btntos 205,880 Hand* employed in agriculture in Illinois,, 376,i1l Uapital invested iu Iron and cotton uiauu • fuuturo In United States... ..$328,320,000 Capital lu cultivated farm lauds In nU uu Is* *0 H jooojooo \fo call tho attention of tho producers ami laborers to tbo fact that tho ontlro number of parsons engaged in making iron and cotton goods was but little more thou half .tbo popu lation of Ohicago r and that, if tho Iwholo 205,000 wore plokod up from all parts of tho United States and planted iu Illi nois, thoy would not cououmo tho surplus products of more than two counties. In con sideration that those 205,000 persons employed iu making cotton and iron goods will oat corn and other breadstuff*, tho wholo country has hoou put under a tax of from 10 to GO per cent on all the cottou and iron goods thoy upe. Wo uow in- Tito tho attention of tho farmers and other pro ducers to the wool business : Taluo of woolen product lu the United UUtOH $1(35,405,553 Capital employed l)U,U'Jl,aai Whole number of bauds employed lu the United State* 60,053 In the Btato of Illinois tUero wore, in 1870, live stock of tho value and kinds following : Horace $ 76,000,000 UiUtlOc Mulea aud aaacs. Hogs.... Wagons and carts on farms, Total. It will bo aeon, therefore, that In all tho United States there aro only 60,000 persons of all ages employed In tho manufacture of woolen goods; that tho value of tho ontlro product of woolen goods la $10&|OOQjOPO| ami that tho entire capital THE CHICAGO DAILY i’MBtJNI2i;\VEDjNKHJJAv;, JUJNIi 11, 1«73. invested in that business is but $08,000,000, much of which is nominal In tho shape of watorod stock t bnt not equal to ono-lmlf tho capital invested, in Illinois alone, in horses, cattle, mules, hogs, and' farm wagons.: The farmers of this ono’State have Invested In. cultivated land $014,000,000 j and tho working of this land gives employment. to 876,000 hands; and yet those 870,000 hands have to pay out of their wages and earnings a tax of from 60 to 80 per cent on every article of woolen goods they use. The law intorrpoaos and declares that, in order to make tho $00,060,000 Invested in machinery, mills, and woolen manu facture profitable, tho consumers ‘of woolen goods all over tho country shall pay, in .addi tion to tho cost of tho goods, an average tax of CO per cent, to be divided .among' the holders of tho capital stock. Tho operation of this Is, that, whoa five bushels of grain would purchase a given quantity of woolen goods, the farmer must pay eight bushels, tho extra throe being a special bounty required by law to moke woolen mill stock valuable. Tho formers are asked to submit.to this robbery because thereby 80,000 persons who eat broad ore furnished os addition al consumers. Tho smallest county in Illinois could take the contract of feeding tho whole population engaged in making woolen goods in all tho United States, and that without at all exhausting Us surplus. Those persons engaged in making. woolen' goods in tho United States, receive an average of $334 a year each for wages. ( Tho entire wages is aboat $27,000,000 a year, not more than equal to the purchase In Now York of ono-tonth of tho com produced in Illinois alone. The “homo market,’* that Is to say tho pur chasers of broods tuffs and provisions supposed to bo furnished by tho manufacturers of Iron, cotton, and woolen goods in all parts of tho United States, numbers precisely 846,000‘ per sons, or loss than tho population of Cook Coun ty, in this State. The whole capital employed in the whole United States In tho throe oooupa tions ia $427,000,008, or one-third less than is invested in tho cultivated forms of Illinois. Tho Fifth Senatorial District of Illinois, con sisting of Madison and St. Clair Counties, has under cultivation: , # I ' In wheat, acres. ......... In corn, acres..,. In other products,, acres. Total acres in grain.. Those two counties in Illinois havo an annual surplus of breadstuffs moro than eallldont to feed every man, woman, and child engaged in tho whole United States in tho manufacture of iron, woolen, and cotton goods. And yet, tho entire farming community of the wholo, country are told that tho additional market furnished for breadstuffs by tho employment of persons in thoso three products Justifies the payment by tho formers of eight bushels of grain, instead of of five, for all the iron, woolen, and cotton goods they have to purchase. Wo submit that this '* homo market” is rather an expansive luxury. Tho aggregate capital invested in those throe occupations, does not equal more than two-thlrda tho capital invested in the improved farms of Illinois, and wo submit that to subject tho form era of tho ontiro country to a special tax of 50 per cent on iron, cotton, and woolen goods, to make those occupations profitable, is a robbery so evi dent and so enormous that tho law which au thorizes it should bo repealed without delay. THE MODOC MURDER. Tho atrocity perpetrated upon a handful of Modoo Indians, who had surrendered themselves as prisoners of war and wore coming into camp, is not exceeded In cowardice, treachery, or brutality, by any of tho numerous outrages with which Capt. Jack stands indicted. Tho telegraph has already supplied tho full details of tho manner la which tho Oregon volunteers intercepted tho Modoo prisoners and butchered them in cold blood, and it is unnecessary to repeat tho story. These Modocs had not been. guilty of any special acts of violence or murder, except so far as their defiance of tho Government and their defense of thomsolvos against tho Government troops may bo termed violence and murder. Thoy woro captured in open warefare and they surrendered as prisoners of war, under implied, if not actual, assurances of safo treatment, until thoir coses could bo dis posed of by tho proper authorities, either in tbo regular courts of tho land or in court-martial. Thoy were in tho hands of tho Government. If thoy had boon killed while committing an out rage upon settlers, or if thoy had ’ boon ovor- s taken and killed wbilo bearing arms against tho Government, tho case would havo boon a different ouo, audno blame could havo attached to thoso who killed them. But in this case they woro in tbo hands of tho Government, and tho Government nlouowas competent to decide upon thoir punishment. In addition, therefore, to the brutality and cowardice of tho act, which reduced tho perpetrators to tho lovol of tho sav age's themselves, thoy stand guilty of a serious offense against tho Government and against law. Thoy havo taken upon themselves tho func tions of tbo Government, made themselves judge, Jury, and executioner, and enforced tho extreme penalty in such an unauthorized man-' nor that their action was simply murder.. No matter what thoir wrongs may have been, or however much thoy may havo suffered, tho Government was tho solo arbiter of tho fato of thoso Indians, and was already commencing its arrangements for ;tho vindication of its rights and tho rights of tho people who had suffered, by taking the necessary stops to bring every Modoo to trial, some of them in the courts of Oregon apd'somo by court-martial. Tbo volun teers had no reason to suppose that tho Govern ment would fall to do its wholo duty In tho prom ises, and impose tho full penalty of tho law applying in such casco. Thoy had no reason to suppose that tbo .Modocs woro insecurely guarded or would mako: thoir escape. They had no reason to oupposo that tho Government was disposed to bo lenient or to allow them to escape with a light punishment. Thoir act was com mitted in supreme contempt of tho Government.. Tho United States has carried on war against tho Modocs under tho rules of civilized warefare. It has treated them ns a war-making power, rather than as a mofi of turbulouts- or assassins. It has treated with thoir loading men under lings of tmeo while tho war was pond ing. It has repeatedly made offers of compromise and settlement with them.' In all respects, it has recognized them as a power ca pable of making war and executing treaties. It would, therefore, have boon Just' as consistent for a regiment of Union soldiore, during tho War of tho Rebellion, to havo shot down a squad of Confederate prisoners, who had surrendered under tho forms of war, and placed them selves under tho protection "of tho Gov ernment until thoir fato was decided. It does not alter tho ooso . that thoso Modocs woro savages, and may havo boon engaged at some time or othor in outrages upon tho froutloj; settlements. In fact, there U w jsJtiUU'OOO ju'ooo’ooo i5|660!666 16.000,000 .$100,000,000 evidence to show that those parties hod perpe trated any special oote of like those .committed by Capt. Jaakj‘ Boston Charley, or Old Bchonsohln. Thoy wAro ‘ fmtltlod to protec tion until the law disposed* of them, and tho aot of the Oregon volunteers was’ in supremo con tempt of tho authority of the Government. It is now tho duty of’ tho authorities to dis cover tho guilty parties and punish them for (heir offense, Just as famoh as it is their duty to - punish tho Modoeo. Tho conduct of the volun teers should not mitigate the punishment of tho latter. Their-treachery and brutality should moot with complete and swift-retribution. At tho some time, the conduct of tho;Modoo8 does not furnish any palliation for tho brutality of tho volunteers, aud should not stand as an off set to their punishment. The Government Is bound to assort its power In the- oho case - ond Its dignity In the other, and, while it teaches Modoos that they cannot murder, and pillage with impunity, it should also teach white men that they cannot stop in and usurp its prerogatives without paying tho penalty. THE ALEXANDRA PALACE. Tho oablo dispatches, yesterday,' brought the Intelligence of tho destruction of the Alexandra Palaoo, near London, involving a loss of about throo millions of dollars. As this palaoo was but Just finished, having been opened to the publio on tho 24th nit., there ore probably but few people who have any well-defined idea of Its character or uses. Tho Alexandra i Palace grow out of tho Groat Exhibition of 1662, and portions. of ' the Crystal Palaoo at South Kensington ■ wore used, In* Its construction. It had boon over . eleven . years 'in pro- ocßfl of construction, owing.. to n tun or-' oua obstacles which stood In thoway. .Opera tions woro many times suspended, but at last tho building was finished. It stood In the midst of a park of 220 acres, in the beautifying of which Art had assisted Nature, The interior of tho palace was magnificently decorated. Tho nave, which was 000 foot in length, wAs filled with statues, fountains, shrubs, and fiowor-heds. In tho control transept—thoro being throe—tho Tost dome'rose to 1 a height of 220 foot, Its 1 cir cumference being; 170 feet. 4 In- this part of tho building a hugo. organ hod boon oroctod under tho personal supervision of Blr Miohaol Costa, and In this transept grand con certs wore continually to bo given. A spools! concert hall, onpablo of holding 8,000 pooplo, was also constructed in another transept, in which thoro was also a largo organ. At tho opening concert, on tho 24tb, Costa had tho control of tho' .171,632 .188,100 . 73 071 .883,953 band and tho chorus, upwards of 1,000 in num ber,—among tho singers being Milo. Titions, Madame TrobeUi-Bottlnl, Milo. - Oorola, - Sig nor Oampanini, and other distinguished ar tists. .; In tho northern gallery, throb spa cious rooms were sot apart for pictures, bud in thoso rooms woro works by Millais, Ward, El moro, Linnoll, Colo, Cox, Proutj Hunt, Gilbert,' Turner, Outtormolo, Morland, and other famous English masters. In addition to these, there woro several of tho finest pieces of tapestry in England on exhibition. Tho London iVcios says of tho entertainments which woro announced to tako place in it: Tho programme of amusements -which the directors have issued Is almost bewildering from its variety. There aro to bo cat shows, dog shows, horse shows, poultry and pigeon shows, cage-bird shows, races, cricket patches, croquet matches, archery matches,, volunteer fetes and reviews; there is to bo a gymna sium, an aquarium; nothing will bo neglected to at-' tract visitors at all seasons of tho year. . Tho refresh ment department Is la the experienced hands of STeaara, Bertram & Roberts, who have a largo'rustic banquet ing hall in the grounds, and suites of very pleasant and elegantly-furnished dining-rooms in tho Interior of tho building. There ore, moreover, taatcfuUy-docoratcd refreshment counters in'varlous parts of the palace. . Judging from tbo general description of tho building, it was to bo dovotod to public enter tainment in a variety of forma, in spoclol com petition with tho Crystal Palaco at Sydenham. On Saturdays, whoa there were special enter tainments, the price was fixed at one shilling, but on other days it was to bo thrown open to all corners ot sixpence each. * The principal losses to bo deplored are those of tbo art; treas ures which it contained, and of tho great organs which had boon constructed for concert pur poses. • • > • The Green Bay Advocate thinks that the ques tion of cheap freights can bo solved by complet ing tho “ Northern Improvement ” scheme, that is, a ship-canal from tho' Mississippi River' to Groen Bay. Tho* Advocate overlooks the. fact that tho trouble is in getting freights oast of tho lakes. Tho Erie Canal has boon over since 1854 inadequate to carry tho grain of tho West, and during that eighteen years tho State of*' Now York has not expended ono dollar to enlarge tho capacity of the canal. Millions of bushels of grain are shipped hence by water to Buffalo, and are then placed on railways and scut to tho East. Tho inability of iho canal to perform the service; tho long delays incident to its crowd ed state; tho high rates of freight, all combine to rondor it at times oven cheaper to forward from Buffalo by rail than to send by tho canal. What is noodod is a through route or routes to tho seaboard of sufficient capacity to movo tho wbolo surplus products pf tho West at rates which will not consume tho value of tho things forwarded. So long as tho lakes exist there will ho no difficulty in reaching Buffalo ; be yond that there must be now routes, and if that routo bo by the St. Lawrence River, instead of an enlarged canal to Now York, tho relief will bo all tho samo to tho West, however unfor tunate it may bo for Now York. ■Tho Springfield (IU.) JbunmMs very much disgusted at iho way things aro going. l ' It de nounces tho action of tho Livingston County farmers in proposing to bold a convention and nominate candidates of their own for county 1 officers ; for this tho farmers aro called enemies of tho “ Republican party.” Can a man bean enemy to tho .Republican or any other'party unless that party and ho aro opposed to each other; aud if tho farmers of Illinois havo united for year after year, for tho Republicans and Democrats to do something but legislate In tho interests of monopoly, is if not time that thoy should take stops to do their own voting and their own legislating? , , It sooma that tho editor of tlio St. Paul Press wont with tho Congressional orourdou to tho Gulf, and comes bade from Now Orleans with tho dear conviction that both parties oro mani festly in tho right, and both parties hopolosaly In tho wrong; and that everything thoy Bay

about oaoh other is true, and everything thoy aay about thomaolvos la falao. Ho thinks' that this. is vory likely to bo tho impression loft upou ovary man who goes to Now Orleans with tho purpose of taking on Impartial view of tho situation. His coaduaion is that tho only Just remedy .Is for tho people to fight it out at tho polls. This was tho oouelutlon v( tl»« loatog pwq (q tbs geuato, and, after reaching it, they deliberately ad journed nnd loft President OrAnt At liberty to follow - out hla policy of sustaining tbo Kellogg faction by foroo of arms. NOTES AND OPINION. TUo Republican farmers of Poweshiek County, lowa, oamo up to tho county-seat, May 81, by invitation, to “ purify tho party," and, finding that tbo purification was only to bo a whitewash of tho old loaders, tbo Republican farmers bold au indignation-mooting on tbo spot, and purified themselves of all such party name and leader ship. Poweshiek County voted, last year j : Grant, 1,050 ; Greeley, 569. . —Tho spectacle is presented to tho people of Now York of a legislative supply bill appropri ating over $4,000,000 for tbo odds and ends of things not embraced ia regular appropriations; and, as if such a bill .was not itself bad enough, tbo clerics and lobbyists have unwarrantably tam pered with' it, and it Is yet in a chaotic stato days after tho Legislature has adjourned.’ Tbo Rochester Union says i Viewed In any aspect, thobandylng about of the Sup ply bill, Involving millions of taxation, without scru tiny or signature by tho Speaker of tho Assembly and President of tbo Bonnto, Is a charming commentary upon Republican “ Reform *’ legislation. —Gov. Carpenter, of lowa, know that State Treasurer Rankin was Stealing tho funds ; know that ho himself was on a worthless bond of tho Treasurer; knew that tbo product of tho theft was a dead loss to tho Horticultural College ; know all this, and did not seek to pre vent it, and has not sought to enforce tho laws for tho punishment of orimo. And now, a candi date for' ro-oloollon, and known to bo ou inti mate friendly terms with Rankin,. tbo Governor has had • tho coolness to say, in on address at Muscatinet There must exist a sentiment of cbivalrlo honor In tbo people, that will make It too hot fur au ofllclal do- Uuauant to Uvo In lUe proaonoo of a oojwUtuouoy ho has betrayed. Tho people of lowa afo very much disposed to take Carpenter's advice and apply It to himself. • —Tho City'of Cleveland, 0., Is to have a Su perior Court of throe Judges, and, tho party manipulators and professional bummers have so sot op things that, whichever of two tickets la olootod, tho party mnohino is glorified and tho pooplo cheated.. Therefore, the Leader and tho Herald odviso individual electors to scratch both tickets, and tho Herald says : : Thoro mu no excuse for making party nominations, and, inasmuch as tho election is to bo a special one, a most favorable opportunity was afforded for making such election non-partisan. Hut other seutimeuts prevailed. —Tho State Printer of lowa has tho bulky volumes of tho now Codo in typo, for a State edition to supply all entitled to copies; but thoro is delay in getting tho titlo-pago, or preface, or something of that sort; so tho State Printer will work off a fow thousand “ imperfect copies "'and soil them at 64 a volume.' Two or throo months honco,:a corrected titlo-pago,will bo got in typo, and “perfect copies " distributed free.

In tho above mentioned shares tho decline ranged from to per cent. In tho fall.small fractious aro omittted. Wiiilo dealings wore attended with a greater degree of anima tion than usual, tho general market loft off weak, at a very slight recovery from tho lowest prices, and this only in a few cases. Early in tho day Erio was tho loading feature, owing to an advance of i% per cent, in sympathy with higher quotations at London. In tho lato deal ings, however, the prlco gave way % per coat, closing higher. The proposed loan by tho Pacific Mail Company of §5,000,000 was difficult to ho. obtained at less than 10 .per cent on steamship collateral. Insurance and other out lays would consume 10 per cent more, and tho concern is not yenable to pay 20 por cent for tbo privilege of carrying on business. It is said that short interest m stock is being covered, and that this is tho reason why tho price stands whore it does to-day. Tho statement that tho Western Union Telegraph Company have given IG,OOO shares of stock for tho Atlantic & Pacific Company’s linos is denied, but tho story has had its affect upon tho price of Western Union, and that is probably all that was intended by the parties starting tho rumor. It is stated that tho Central & Hudson Kivor Company is prepar ing to lay an extra double track botwoou Albany and Buffalo, and that that portion of tho $10,000,000 loan negotiated in Loudon is in vested in rails, which are being brought over for tho now track.

Ho responded in o hoif-hpur speech, stating that ho did not con struo this into a personal ovation, but ono in spired by tho friends of law and of order. Ho said ho would not dwell upon tho unsuccessful efforts to oust him and overturn tho lato Gov ornraont. Besot with spies and foes In his own political oamp, ho doomed it wise to call on those, not of his own political household, to up hpld tho Government. When ho toolc upon himsolf tho oath of office, it-was no unmeaning vow, but ono made with tho intention of faith fully discharging tho duties of tho pooitiou. There wore some who believed ho had consented to bo inaugurated when not ho, but another, had boon elected.

Had his competitor boon duly de elected, no roan in tho State would have boon more willing to respect bis authority. When tho matter was presented to tile Legislature, that body, including both political parties, decided in his favor, and whon in tho faco of this authoritative declaration, —whon an effort was mado to go be yond tbo Constitution by applying for a quo warranto against him, whon that right bad boon specially given to tbo Legislature, it was reason able to suppose a conspiracy had boon formed to ojeot him from office without regard to merits of the case. Under those circumstances, and with a further knowledge of the intention of those bad men, ho had put himself in a position to moot force with force. -It was a source of happiness, however, that no conflict arose. Wbuo rumors of groat civil commotion wore hig spread broadcast, nob a ripple disturbed tbo peace and order at homo. Ho thanked God that while wo had suffered some from tho nets of those bad men, wo bavo preserved the dignity of tho law, and that henceforth tho people are de termined to put down ovory treasonable demon stration that may bo made. In tho future ho would bo guided by tbo same principles ns in tho past. Ho expected to remain faithful to his party. Ho was a Kopublicau not only in namo but in principle, bat at the same time ho return ed thanks to tho Democracy for tho manner in which they had sustained him. In his future administration bo should faithfully adhere to that groat fundamental principle, the equality of , all men before the law. At the conclusion of tbo Governor's speech the crowd dispersed.
