The representations of Gov. Orr and ex-Gov. Ai ken. in toward to what they saw and heaid in Washington, have not been without their effect. I iind that all thinking men. In ev ery walk of life, are beginning to look upon the restoration of ibis State to her former relations with the General Government as a matter of supreme necessity. They nay tint her exclusion for a twelve month longer will render the ruin which al ready menaces her material interests wide spread and permanent; that it is no time now to be 100 fastidious about the terms of set tlement; and that any conditions, however distastciu 1 .. that do no; involve absolute dis honor, ought to be accepted. More than this, very many prominent citizens do not hesitate to advocate negro suffrage perse, as affording the best chance of preserving the former political influence of the Southern States. It is urged that the blacks, when in vested with tbc ballot will infallibly vote in harmony with the views cf the white popu lation, with whom they are idcniilled by as sociation and interest. The confidence of lh9so holding these views has been much strengthened of late by the cheat cxodi’s or the rncEDiinv, which is now going on from every section of the Side—a movement ait* >gc : her unprece dented, and one which is last draining off the laboring population, as well from the rith alluvial lands of the seaboard as from the less fruitful highlands of the interior districts. For the first time m their lives, probably, the planters hate begun fully to realize the truths that labor depends upon population, nnd wealth upon labor; and that lends are only valuable ir proportion to the abundance and consequent cheapness of la bor. It is not, perhaps, an exaggerated esti mate to place the whole number of freed people—men, women and children—who, for various cause*, have quitted this State since the close of the war, at 50,000 souls. In calculating the extent of this loss to '.lie agricultural power of the State, it must be boruc in mind that the freeduu-n who emigrate arc almost invaria bly the most adventurous, active and Intelli gent of their class, and that an unusually imgc proi ortiou of their number are young, stout and aMc-bodied men —the old aud in lit m be:: g always, and the w..mcn and chil dren in mo.-1 cases, leu bemud. Some of the emigrants have gone to Florida, the Govern ment providing fer their transportation, aud promising them, o:i icaching their destina tion, la--d to cultivate, and rations until they arc able to Citablish themselves fairly in their nen abode; but by tar tbe larger number l."vc gene West, in small bodies, having brrn engaged by lab;-r agents, sent here by W< stern planters, and who are paid a percentage o*. every llcld-haud they may succeed in .orwardiug. A LAUOU TAMO AMONG THE PANTEUS. Fortbc past month there has been a gene ral scramble among the landed proprietors for such of the laborers as were willing to remain in the State; and the apprehensions of each that the coming crop might be put In jeopardy lor waut ol a sufficiency of hands have had the effect of placing a considera ble premium (the amount varying according to the planter's necessities in each case) on the services of the freedmen. as an induce ment for them to contract. The natural re sult of all this has been to increase the plant lei’s appreciation of their former slaves. Of course the masters who have shown conside ration and kicuness toward their laborers during the past year have found least diffi culty in cilecling contracts for the future; and it may safely be predicted that hereafter, in South Carolina, interest will combine with le?s selfish considerations to secure for the negiocs good treatment and full justice at the hands ol their employers. Thus the education aid gradual elevation of the blacks in the social scale hes already become a problem of much less difficulty than was gen erally anticipated by Southerners when the war closed. IVliat llie southern States Most Accept* fFroia the New Toik Times. Feburary 23.] ’ Ouc reason which led many persons to tolerate llie passage of the Reconstruction Bill, who disapprove wholly of its principles, was the apprehension that' the longer the subjects? left open the more severe and intolcr aut will be the terms imposed upon the South. This was urged last year as a reason why the South should accept the Constitutional Amendment, but it was scouted bv the South ern States, under the ailvicc of their pretend ed political friends at the North. They were advised by the UVM and other Democrat ic journals not to'accept the Amendment, and were assured that neither negro suffrage nor any other terms severer than the Consti tutional Amendment could or would he pro posed. IVc have seen thercsuUofthat experiment. The Southern States, with very great uuan iraitr, rciected tne Amendment, and now they have got that, with universal negro saf rageand partial white disfranchisement., and military government to "back them up, as a substitute for it. And Reverdy Johnson, a staunch Democrat and a Southern man, voted for this bill under the apprehension that, if seme final action is not now taken, something rfifl worse will be forced upon the country and the South. ll may be well enough to state that these apprehensions are not wholy without founda tion. Ilia very well understood that bills arc in course of preparation for early introduction into the next Congress, providing for a sweeping confiscation of rebel property in ILe Southern Stales, and for its distribu tion among lire enfranchised slaves, for pay ing claims of loyal men for property de stroyed dining the war, and for giving farms to Northern soldiers who will settle in the South. Mr. Stevens has declared his pur pose, “ God willing and he living,” to press such a measure as this upon Congress, and General Banks in debated declared him self in favor of such distribution of Southern farms among Northern soldiers as the only effectual mode of reconstructing Southern society. It may safely be assumed that the whole body of Radicals in Congress will go for such a measure; and it is confidently expected that the rejection by the South of the new terms now proposed will create a fresh feeling of resentment winch will give it popularity and strength throughout the North. The measure itself has elements of attraction for many classes, and is expected reenre the support of the soldiers in a body. F-Tt may be snpposed that the Snpreme Court will present a final barrier against the ultimate success of sack a project. But it must bo remembered that fear members of tbat Court out ofmne wou:a now, beyond alt Su .o b “ meas - ure : end tbat of I Sf, J, h . 9 ' rtmld oppose it, one If not two ! orL? bb r cr , cr “Bain sit on tho bench • in consequence of extreme age and illnc=a. i 4 * aw moreover, at the last sea- I ZSfc* decla S? s that in case of the ?j C iii °\ a S n PretneCoart Judge, the vacancy ! shall not be filled until the whole number of 1 Judges shall have been reduced by death ! or otherwise to seven. The chances are, i therefore, that within the next year the “.upremc Court of the United States will be • as thoroughly in tho hands of the Radicals i as Congress is. Senator Johnson’s misgivings, therefore would seem to have a very substantial foun dation In the probabilities of the luturc. THE GALLOWS. Scenes at ibe Execution of Wagner In New York. , [From the New York Evening Gazette, March 11 The execution of Wagner this morning at the Toombs on Centre street was a most solemn and inmressive affair. Tho prisoner ; passed yesterday in a very comfortable and quiet manner, and was out in the corridors as late as eleven o’clock In the evenin'*. He was a Protestant, but since his imprison ment, through the influence of the Sisters of other. priests, he has professed the Catholic faith, flis wife was a Catholic. Last night he retired to bed about eleven : o clock, and slept soundly until two or three 1 o clock this morning. At half-past five this 1 morning he walked to the prison chapel. I mass was celebrated, and he partook of the communion for the last time. He walked firmly, and required no support. Father Duranquet officiated at the mass. Between six and seven he took a hearty breakfast of fish, coffee, and rolls. At half- . past eight he said good-bye to those officers 1 and attendants with whom he has come in contactalncc being In the prison. He had no friends in this country. His last and onlr request was that he might be buried in : Greenwood by the side of his wife. i At about eight o’clock those who had cards of admission to witness the execution began to assemble in the hall of tho war des The rain came down dismally, ’ and the streets were black with fog and full i of disagreeable mud. It was a horrible hour, even for an execution. At half past eight a long file of policemen came in. marching solemn tramp. There were sixty from the Sixth precinct, and others were detailed from various parts of the city, making about one hundred in all. Soon after the Sheriff. Mr. John Kelly arrived, and following him . were tixteen Deputy Sheriffs. They wore crape on their left arms, and the iosignia of their office was also covered with crape. inside the prison yard the police formed in a long line, reaching from the door of the prison to the gallows. A crowd of some two hundred spectators were waiting to get in, and when the nates were thrown open, the rush and excitement was wonderful, much like a ball or an opera. The rain fell in tor rents, and a canvas awning had been thrown over the gallows. The Bridge of Sighs was covered with canvas to hide from the pass ers-by the fearful scene. The crowd pressed up about the gallows, with their umbrellas spread, and stood watching the adjusting of 1 the rope. After several trials, a rope was put up which seemed to be of the ne- 1 ccssary strength, when it required three men 1 to pull up the iron weight attached to the • end. Miles. 120 The crowd now patiently waited for the appearance of the prisoner. The doctors stood in a group at the right of the gallows; the members ol the press were at the left; the police kept back the anxious crowd. Many eftbe prison windows were tilled with faces, and here and there a piece of looking, glass would be seen thrust out from the cell window of some prisoner, who was anxious to get a glimpse of the proceedings. At ten minutes past nine the Sheriffs ap peared, coming from the door of the hall leading to "Wagner’s cell. They were fol lowed by the prisoner, who was supported by a couple of priests. Instantly the crowd uncovered their heads, and tho procession walked down tho yard to the gallows. Wagner stepped firmly, bnt looked'exceed ingly pale. He was dressed In black with white cotton cloves, and had a black cap on his head. He held a crucifix in his hand. When the procession reached the gallows, Wagner kneelc, beneath the fatal rope, {the priests knot-led by his side, and the and officers didthe same. FatherDullieller, a German, was on his left, and Father Du rancpiet, a Frenchman, on his right. Father McKenna, a white-bearded old man, was also on the right side of the prisoner. In a low tone. Father Duranquet spoke a few words of consolation to the prisoner, bnt he made no re ply. He was pale, his eyes were set, and he seemed to be lost to all that was proceeding around him. Father Duthcller presented the crucifix, which the prisoner kissed. The Deputy Sheriff, Mr. Isaacs, stepped forward and adjusted the rope about his neck, the prisoner standing up. The cap was pulled over his eyes. Sheriff Kelly dropped a white handkerchief, and the weight tell, drawing the criminal up. It was just fifteen minutes past nine when the drop foil. Wagner struggled convulsively for about six minutes, when the body became quiet. In twelve minutes the pulse ceased to beat at the wrist, and in three minutes more the heart stopped. In twenty-seven minutes he was lowered upon a canvas, and the doctors rotated the neck to learn if' it had been dis located. The opinion was that his neck was not broken—he died of strangulation. A red mahogany coffin, lined with white, was brought iii, the body put in, and the hearse driven off out of the prison yard. 03,030 17,300 60,000 83.000 33.000 10.000 $2,310,553 3IARD.E DISASTERS.

Bloody Altercation Between Prominent Citizens or iQomona Territory—One of Them Killed. [From the Helena (Montana) Herald, Feb. 21.] \Vc are pained to Icam that on Wednesday morning, SOlh ultimo, a shooting affray oc curred near Professor Hodge’s Mill, on Orofino Gulch, about three miles from this city, which resulted in the severe wounding of our esteemed friends, Professor Hodge and his son. and the fatal wounding of a Mr. George Moore. It seems that there had been some difficul ty between the Professor and other parties with regard to the right to a quantity of wood which had been cat by a man named Small. At the time above stated, the former accompanied by his son and others, being armed, went with teams to the place where the wood was piled, and expressed a deter mination to take it away at all hazards. Moore and Small forbade their taking the wood, and on Mr. Hodge raising a stick from the pile to load on to a wagon, they re sisted his efforts whereupon Mr. Hodge stepped back, cocking his gun. Simultaneously with this action of Mr. Hodge, Moore" drew his revolver, when thev both lired. It is believed at the same time. Moore received a charge of buck shot In the breast, in the region of the heart, and a ball in the groin—the wounds arc supposed to be mortal. The Professor was shot also in the breast, but tho ball, glancing, passed around Ids side. Although at last acconuts, the ball had not been found, the wound was judged to be not fatal. Young Hodge was shoi In the wrist, —how or by whomwc have not learned—but understand that it will bo necessary to amputate his hand. Soon after the fatal affray took place, it was lound necessary to amputate the hand of young Hodge, above the wrist—the ball hav ing passed through the wrist joint. Tho Pro fessor was shot In the breast—the ball strik ing the breast bone and fracturing tbc same, from which the ball glanced, as it Is suppos ed, upward. As soou as tbc patlout is suffi ciently recovered to admit of the operation, the search for aud extraction of the ball will Pc made. Neither the Professor or his eon arc re garded as in any danger of their lives.from, the wounds received, but George Moore la dead. lie cued from the effects of his wounds, after severe suffering, at a quarter past six o’clock on Friday last. George Moore was a young man of promise, of good habits, good heart, and was highly esteemed By all who knew him. 110 was the only sou and pride of a respectable fam ily. ILis father—formerly from Ohio, but now a resident of Minnesota—has heldmany offices of honor and trust, and is esteemed for his sound judgment, unerring Integrity nnd genial manners. William L. Moore, a prominent lawyer and legislator of Minneso ta—a resident of St. Cloud, and who spent utarly two years in this Territory—was a brother-in-law of the deceased. A Talented Yotrili.

AiTirt of a Fall United States Court— Brcaa«and«Buttcr Officers Como to Grief. J [Prom the Grand Rapids (Midi.) Eagle.] 1 Deputy Maishal Bean, of ioala, a few . weeks since entered into a business arrange j ment with Fred. A. Nuns, of Muskegon which had, up to a recent date, been quite successful. Kims had been rejoicing in the possession and honors of no less than three offices of the United Stales—offices not in the gift or under the control of tho great mass of the people, who are sometimes slow I to recognize such talent, aud reward such merit as seem to be combined in his person, but offices secured through the favor and In- 1 fluence of a temporarily lucky kinship—to j : wit; United States Commissioner, Deputy j United States District Attorney, and United I States Internal Revenue Deputy Collector. , Tho two thus constituted a full court, hav- 1 ing sufficient jurisdiction to enter complaints, . make arrests, prosecute, examine, bind over 1 i or settle up any cases that might happen to 1 come before it. Thus organized for business, ! this portable, migratory, two-horse court 5 started on a trip of adventure and specula tion'down the lake shore, and the world t heard nothing of its progress until Us arrival t was very appropriately Heralded in the by- 1 perborean region of Traverse City. Its op- I orations, thus far, are said to have been quite f productive in the way of obtaining “stamps,” t and exciting the fear of the wonaer-stricken e Inhabitants along the route. The business of c the court opened well in the city of the Bay, F and promised a very prosperous run until T March 4, at least. But, alas! 5 “The best laid plans of mice and men gang aft aglcc.” While tho memheis of the court were in the height of their felicitations and hopes, they were visited by a local officer of the county, armed with a warrant issued out of tbe Justice Court of Morgan Bates, and arrested, under the charge ol extortion . 7 hey were taken before said Justice, and, sufficient proof in support of the charge be ing elicited. required to give bail for their appearance lor trial at the next term of the Circuit Court of Grand Traverse County. Failing in their efforts to secure bail, they were committed to jail, os iu such cases made and provided; and. at last accounts, they were waiting in the lock-up, in the anx ious expectation of getting relief from their friends and co-operators here or elsewhere. What, if anything, .can be done to effect their release, is a question which was dis cussed in an Interesting ** circle ” last night, bnt without satisfactory solution. In the meantime, the only “ bread and-buttcr” these “satraps” are now getting is doled out to them by the man with the big key, who has charge of the prisoners.

Mr. Bryant, in one of his letters to the New York Evening Post from Spain, relates the following incident about oar national air of Yankee Doodle, which- gives to that much and deservedly abused musical dog gerel an unexpected antiquity. He says : I have mentioned the Basques, and 1 have an incident to relate which connects them, curiously enough, with onr own country. Some lime since, when Mr. Perry. Secretary of the American Legation at Madrid, was in one of the Basque provinces, he heard a band playing their old national airs. The Basques have preserved whatever la peculiar to them, their language, their customs, aud many of their politi cal rights, from the earliest period in which they are known to history ; their na tional music is claimed to be of the same an tiquity. After the band had played several other airs it struck up Yankee Doodle, the very tunc, in every note, which is so familiar to American ears. Mr. Perry immediately claimed It as our national air. “It is one of our old tunes,” said a gentleman to whom he spoke, "and I can convince you of the fact. For hundreds of years it has been a popular air among us.” The gentleman af terwords made good his assertion by show ing Mr. Perry a manuscript of great antiqui ty which contained the ideutlcal musical notes of “Yankee Doodle.” Hull.

THE BLEHOBN BANK BOBBERS The Arrest—WHO Effected It, The Miiur'aHegitter of Central City, Colorado, in Its issue ot February 17th, has the following relative to the arrest of Eugene and Charles Ham ilton, who were captured in New Mexico, a short time ago, on suspicion of having participated in the robbery of the Qkbom Bank, Wisconsin, tak ing therefrom ?ISO,OOO. A foil account of their capture was published in the Turn ewe on the ar rival of the burglars In this city, but that account Is tar from harmonizing with the following: ■ “ The Hamfitons were not captured at Denver City nor were they released from custody by a mob. Detective Yates came to Colorado' last June in pursuit of the bank robbers, but did not succeed is finding them. Alter remaining here two or three weeks he snrrcndcrcd all the pa pers for their appre l- 'u to Wm. Z. Cozens, Sheriff ot Gilpin.'" And then returned to Chicago os lastu. . A and cars could carry him. Months elapsed before the detectives em ployed by Sbenff Cozens obtained a duo to the entity parties, but they were at length bunted to the Mexican town Taos, on the New Mexican frontier. On being advised of their whereabouts. Sheriff C. started immediately for Taos, tnkmp with him two or three experienced detectives to assist him in Getting his prey back into tbc limits of civilization. Finding things all right on Lis arrival, ho left T. P. VanTrecs- on guard ibere and returned to Denver for the purpose of acquainting the authorities of Wisconsin, whose vigilance tbc Uamiltonsbad succeeded In eluding, that he would capture and bring them in If be could bo assured of having his expenses paid for so doing. Nothing satisfactory was elicited how ever. Telegrams and letters followed each other In rapid succession, and at last, after delaying definite proceedings for over two months, the de sired Information came, upon receipt of which Mr. Cozens acted promptly, as Is his custom. But during the pendency of these negotiations the burglars bad taken fright and escaped to Ei Pa«o in the Republic of Old Mexico. * Thither Van Trees followed them, and in due time effected their capture, bringing them to the Denver prison for Eofe keeping. On their arrival there, Mr. B. C. Yates was telegraphed as the agent of the State ol Wisconsin, that his men were ready for delivery, neatly bound In calf and embellished with hand-cuffs and shackles. He came, ho saw. and carried them off by permission ofShctlfl Cozens, baton his arrival in Chicago, proclaimed himself the hero of the exciting aud perilous chase. Our modest Sheriff desires no praico for bis part In this brilliant affair* but he thinks it a little unjust to give Yates aii (bo credit when be (Cozens) did all the work, paid all expenses, and risked nia life besides. That is precisely our opinion.” t £ Eoaud or Public Worms.—The "following awards for building tbe new Van Daren street bridge, and for filling, grading and planking three alleys In tbe city, were m»de yesterday at the office of tbe Board of Public Work: i To Fox & Howard, of Chicago, for new bridge over South Branchat Van Bnrea street, with now abutments and centre pier with approaches.

D., of Trinity Church, ■Washington, D, C., preached on Sunday at Trinity Church In this dty,la ihe presence of a very large audience; havinc received a call to fill tho rector ship made vacant by the departure of Rev. Dr. Cummins. The service was very Impressively read by Rev. Dr. Kelly, the venerable assistant rector. Ibe sermon in the rooming was an Interesting exposition of 2d Timothy, 11., 15: “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman thatneedelh not to be ashamed, rlehtiv divining ihe word of truth.” The speaker sold that he should on the present occasion consider the requirements of the Chris tian minister. Tbc mmisicrmnsl first be a work man. His office is no sinecure. His duty, primarily, is to proclaim the unsearchable riches of Christ. His calling is to set forth betore men Christ, and hi in crucified, the only hope ofa dying world, and this is enough to task the powers of on angel. His work Is endless. The Scriptures, the guide of man’s life, are to be prayerfully studied ; his mind most ever be on the aiert to gather material to lay at tho foot of the cross. There is a groat work in the Church. The poor are to be visited, the feeble comtorted, and the man of God ft to "o forth as an example to thcfiock over which God has made him an overseer. Ho sometimes meets discouragement, but he roust not taker, but bear the burden and heat of the day till the Master calls. Goa demands the best service of a mas’s best powers. There are many errors of belief and unbelief to re detected, and the world to be reconciled to God. Infidelity, with legion beads, is to be met and conquered, tbat God may bo trac, though every man a liar. Who, he asked, is sufficient for these things ? The minister must rightly divide the word of truth. In this be must observe both the fitness of things and the proportion of things, the babes, the lambs of tbc flock, must be fed; the strong must be strengthened; in tbc face of the careless and hardened must be flashed the troths ol the world of the damned. The minister must some times preach things tbat make his heart stand still, if the world were to throw off the doctrine of the accountability of men It would become a pandemonium. He must also observe tho proportion of things. He must not give undue prominence to certain doctrines. The religion of tbs Bible is like a beautiful arch of which Christ is the keystone nod security. One works exclusively on the doctrine of grace, and his people lonrct good works. Another preaches too much of works, and his people become fair upon tbc outside but un wholesome within. The word of God is said to bo a savor of life unto life and of death unto deatn, and tho man ol God must rightly divide it. Thus be shall stand a workman approved of God, wao Is on iatallible censor, on unerring judge. St. Paul tells us inai we have a building of God, a Louse not made with hands. Should we not love to stand at last under the magnificent dome I And Uiey who have done wbst they could will time stand approved ot God. The woman who cost her mite into the treasury, Simon tie dusky Cyrcnlm who bore the cross of Christ, the thlel on the cross—all will attain this crown and »eward. Paul, Peter, the apostles, the noble army of martyrs, the conic?sera, the saints of all ages, Howard, Henry Maityn-theso and many more—the great army of God's workmen who wrought in the harden and heat of the day, shall stand at last approved by Him. God help us, said the speaker, so to do this onr work that preacher and people may at last stand together workmen approved by Him, needing not to be ashamed. A Letter from the West Side Gas Com- pany. To the Editor of the Chicago Tribune: Havlrg confidence in you as public joarnalUts. and luclmg mat yonr interest in all public mat tenrare not local but general in their character. I hike this opportunity to state, in behalf of tho People’s Gas Light and Coke company, that they have in no act of theirs placed tho least obstacle in the way of the city of Chicago procuring a char ter, at the lata ecsaionoftbe Legislature, for the purpose of enabling the city to manufacture and supply its citizens with gas; but on the contrary, this company came to the conclusion, offer hiv ing examined the charter drawn by Mr. Lamed and recommended by the Council, lo yield Quietly lo the wishes of the people. Having never robbed tbe people, we did not. nor do onr company now. believe the people will rob them. Wc never felt desirous that the city should purchase onr works, and thereby manufacture Us own gas, bat, on the contrary called upon Mr. Lamed at the lime he was drawing the bill, for the purpose ol con vincing him that it was poor policy on the part of the city to undertake the task of manufacturing its gas. Hot in this I failed to accomplish my purpose. Mr. Lar ned e only reply to my objections was, “Let the citizens of Chicago thoroughly Investigate the subjrct, and if, alter a careful examination of tbe whole matter, a majority of the legal voters de cide to establish gas works according to tho pro visions named in tbe bill. I think It would bo no particular damage lo the gas companies, but would result In a very great saving to the city.” Many of ourbest citizens called upon ns to ascer tain onr wishes Is relation lo the city taking tho gas manufactory under Its own exclusive control. Onr reply was Invariably the same both In pri vate and In public—that It the city wanted to man ufacture its own gas wc should not oppose it, nor should we lay a single obstacle In its way. Wo have kept our promise, both here and at Spring field. No one, knowing tho circumstances, will deny the lact that we have saved me city a large sum of money by building a new gas works at the time ours were erected. Wc have also made large extensions from year to year for the accom modation of those building up remote districts. We have extended onr main pipes, in most cases, where the Council has dt-eircd the directs to be lit up, getting no private comsamptlon, ai d tbe only return for tho onilav Is derived from the street lamp*. 1 am fatly satisfied had the city owned and ran the gas works of tbe West Division of Chicago, it would not have made the extensions which have been made yearly for the last five years, for the accommodation of its citi zens, without resorting to direct taxation upon the people. Tbe amount of revenue derived from the mann&cnrc of gas wonld not have met the amount rcqulicd for the extensions which wc have been obliged to make owing to the nume rous petitions coming from citizens who felt they conld not be deprived of gas light. Or workfare well bnllt, and are as economical ly managed as any works in this or any other country. We do not snCTcr from leakage and con densation, and a small yield of gas from each and every pound cf coal caroonlzed, which Is too apt lobe the case utmost gas works In this country; bnt wc do suffer for the want of consumers upon long lines of pipe put down under circumstances above referred to. Much more ought to be said : upon this subject, but 1 fear 1 am Intrading upon > your space and patience. A. M. Billisos, President West Side Gas Company.

The eight would bo amusing, if a part of the exhibition did not present poor human nature in 11* worse light. It isaebamc for men of lesser Intellects and more limited means ana opportu nities to hang on the skirts of a great operator, bask in the light of his countenance, and share In his gains, only to turn against him the moment he misses a step, and try to convert Uls alumblo into a fall from which be cannot rise. Fair weather friends in social life are miserable speci mens of manhood; but for the members of a stock clique, whose whole living has come from the hands of its chief, to jump unon him If bis feel taller, in tho hope. If they assist In the over throw, that they snail share the spoils*of the crash they might prevent. Is 100 contemptible to be justly characterized in any words at our corn puno. Wc arc not afraid of being misunderstood in this, for we have been unsparing In our d enun ciations of this method of stock gambling.
