J. “the Brower branch j of the heir* to the Holland estate’’ held u meeting last week, which was attended by Strsons from all parts of the country, on. J. V. Brower, of Minnesota, was chosen President, and Dr. T. S. Vender beck, of Philadelphia, Secretary. State ments wen? made in reference to the pros pects of their coming into lirmnislnn of a fortune in Holland, as heirs of Annckc Jann, estimated at 940,000,000, and of the progress made in the matter. ‘‘The old committee of twenty-one” was contin ued. The “heirs” have been striving for years, and give employment to an agent in Holland, besides “any number of lawyers in this country and elsewhere.” They seem to regard the fortune as a certainty. | The Atlantic National Bank, of New j York city, suspended on Saturday. Its suspension was caused by the defalcation of its cashier, T. L. Taintor, who had speculated largely in stocks, especially in Pacific Mail. His depredations hud been going on since he became cashier, about five years ago. In the afternoon he called on Mr. Tappan, President of the Gallatin National Bank, and Chairman of the Clearing House Committee, confessed his guilt and promised to aid ar investigation. It was reported on .Saturday night that the defalcation would exceed $600,000. The father of the thief is reputed to he very wealthy. The hank is. expected to pay about fifty cents on the dollar to its j depositors. There was great animation in Raleigh. N. C. recently. Says a local paper :—“Con siderable excitement was created yester day morning by a whisper, which soon ac- * (piircd the imjHtrtanee of a roar, that an 1 immense amount of money hud been dis covered beneath the remains of an old Catholic Church in rear rif the Yarbrough I House, now in course of demolition.” It | proved true. Thirty-five hundred dollars. | one-half in Confederate notes, but the re- j nmindcr in old hunk bills, gold god silver, together with a gold and silver wateh. were j found wrapped in a Baleigh paper of 1 HGT>, and are supposed to have been the aban doned plunder of one of Sherman’s hum mers. A curious statement comes through the medium of a Herald special from Berlin, to the effect that the Jafiauese Ambassa dors* now in Europe have been seriously consulting as to the wisdom of introducing Christianity as the State religion of Japan. An eminent German endeavored to dis- ' suade them from it, using pretty much the same line of argument as in the United States, justifying the entire separation of Church and State. But there can he nothing hut congratulations that full re ligious liberty in the Empire will bo grant ed, and this is probably what will result i from the present agitation of the subject. I An extensive stock yard, to aecommo-1 date the great herds of Texas and Mexican ] cattle annually received there, is in course i of construction at St. Louis. The grounds I comprise 652 acres, laid out with suitable I avenues, which with the pen. are to be I paved. Then* are 137 pen* already con- i stmeted. and when the establishment is ’ completed there will be quarters for 35,- i 006 cattle, 20,000 hogs. 10,000 sheep, 10,- , 000 horses, with reserved space sufficient j to enlarge these accommodations. A hotel | and all modern improvements are inciadcd in the enterprise*, which is intended to equal the famous establishment at Chicago, j There was a severe frost in the Caroli na! and Tennessee on Friday night. A ! Nashville despatch reports the corn nipped ( and fruit and vegetables seriously damaged ! throughout Middle Tennessee. At Knox ville and in its vicinity the peaches were | killed and the wheat greatly injured. At | Columbia, H. C. ice was formed, and the i young cotton and vegetables wore killed. | In North Carolina all the young cotton is j regarded us ruined, and the damage to other crops is very great. This is the la test spring frost known on the South Car olina coast for 50 years. It is not uncommon fur a bride or groom to interrupt by foolish nervousness the even course of the ceremony. The latest case is that of a man in Cleveland who put the wedding-ring into his month when tin service began, that he might find it at the proper moment. That moment arrived. The minister winked fur the ring. The trembling bride-groom gave an obedient start, a sudden gulp—and the ring had disappeared down his unlucky throat! It is said that over 200 immigrants arrived in New York, Wednesday, who had been promised by agents in London that they should have work when they landed, and they found the promise false. It Is also said that ofsooo immigrants who have arrived at New V'ork since lust Fri day, about 4000 are destitute, they having spent all their money to get to this country on representations that they would find employment on landing. Id San Francisco, recently, a Chinese patient iu a delirious condition escaped from the small pox hospital, and without any clothing on rushed wildly through several streets, eventually taking refuge in a passing car. The other occupants of the car speedily vacated their seats, and left the Celestial in undisputed possession. He was finally lassoed and taken back to the hospital. Information has been received in Wash ington from Oregon to the effect that trouble with the Nex Forces Indians is •expected, involving another Indian war of large proportions. The Nex Peroes trouble js said to have been “long anticipated in army circles.” Advices from Arixonaand New Mexico also state that Cochise con tinues his depredations on the whites. in the Criminal Court of Anno Arundel county, at Annapolis, on Saturday, the case of the State against Elizabeth G. Wharton, for an attempt to murder Eugene Van Ness, was slotted, on motion of Prosecuting Attorney Revell, with the consent of Attorney General Sycstcr. which is the end of the famous Wharton trials. The trouble* at Madrid appear to con tinue without cessation. The Federalists held a great meeting on Sunday last, at which there was much violent talking. Meantime the ('artists continue their aggressions in the provinces. A club has boon formed in Lisbon having for its ob ject the union of the Portuguese Republi cans. A St. Louis despatch reports the arrest of six men, charged with robbing freight cars on railroads centering at Quincy, 111. The robberies have been going on for two years.

Del., on December 2d, has been postponed, by agreement of counsel, to the June term of the court. Telegrams received at the Office of the Signal Service Bureau, on Wednesday, reported heavy snow at Cheyenne, with ibe thermometer down to 23 degree*. The Alexaiulria Gazette nays:—We learn that tgo colored men were arrested in St. Mary’s county. Md., on Saturday night, and are now in the jail at Leonard town, who have since their commitment confessed being parties to the burning of Mr. Schofield, and of the store that belonged to that gentleman on the Three Notch road, in that county, about two weeks ago. One of them has also confessed being guilty of a murder committed in that county twelve years ago. A horrible outrage was perpetrated on Monday near the village of Haltsburg, some fourteen miles from Pittsburg, the victim : being a young girl, who was first violated j and then murdered. Two men, named | Pohle and Hyndomaii, who claim to hrfvc worked at Cumberland, in this State, have been arrested on suspicion. The damage to the fruit crops in Michi gan !s loss than was anticipated. The yield of peaches is estimated at ono-third of a full crop; the apples, pears, grapes, cherries and plums promise abundantly. A full crop of strawberries is also expected. At Boston, last week, Rev Mr. Hut chinson was convicted of swindling the sexton of St. Paul's Church out of $lB,- 000, through pretence of a business part nership. Hutchinson is an Episcopalian clergyman, and was formerly of the diocese of Nova Scotia. A cannon weighing 1950 pounds, cap lured at .Sedan, has arrived at New York • from Berlin. It is a present from the I Emgercr William to the Lutheran Church at Titusville, Pa., and will be cast into a hell for the church. The indications of hostility among the Indians in Oregon are increasing. They have stolen 1300 cattle from William Wells, of Yakima V'alley, and are acting so insolently that In some cases the settlers are removing to the towns for safety. General Schofield telegraphs from San Francisco that there is no doubt but that some of the Modocs have escaped, and there are evidences of on Indian outbreak in Oregon, which! if it occurs, will necessitate reinforcements. A street-car conductor iu Detroit picked up a navy revolver from the floor as several passengers were departing the other day. and a well-dressed woman claimed it, with , the remark, “That's the second time I’ve l lost that to-duy.” i A recent additional dividend ofthirtcen i pence in the pound in the bankrupt estate of Sir Morton Pete k Co., gives their j creditors the total of three shillings and I ninepcnce to the pound on the proved ( claims of $5,600,000. 1 The Michigan Legislature has passed a j law prohibiting the watering of milk and providing for the punishment of those who do. The law imposes a fine of from $lO to SIOO, or imprisonment of ninety, days in default of payment, for an offence. The Greencustle Pa. Echo says that the Messrs.

Lava Beds, April 26.—A reconnoiter- ing party, composed of Batteries K and 9 A, Fourth Artillery, and Company E, 8 Twelfth lii fun try. left camp at 7:30 o’clock 1 this morning, proceeding in u direction f known to lead to the present stronghold of 1 the Modoc*, Captain Evan Thomas, of the 1 Fourth Artillery, being in command. A * dozen or so Warm Spring Indian* were f expected to co-operate on Captain Thomas' Jj The troops having formed a line, *kir- f mishers advanced without molestation un- * til they arrived at the foot of the bluff 1 south of the lava beds, having meanwhile signalled the camp that no Indian* were c to be found. On reaching the bluff the Modocs open- * cd a severe fire, causing the troops to seek ! ! such shelter ns they could find in the orev- ices, chasms, kc. As usual, the foe was 8 unseen. The first position soon became untenu- 1 bio, owing to the fact that the Indians c were able to deliver both a cross fire and an enfilading fire, and the troops were so 1 exposed that up to the present writing (7 H P. M.) only two of the wounded could J reach the camp out of nine wounded. * Uicutcntaut Wright, of the Twelfth In fan- 1 try, had sought shelter in a crevice which was particularly open to the Modoc fire. 1 Grave doubts exist as to hi* ultimate 1 safety. ‘ As soon as information was received at 1 headquarters relative to the peril of the 1 party, troops were at once pushed forward f to their rescue. Four companies were 1 ordered out, two of cavalry, from this • camp, and two from Colonel Mason’s. r Stretchers for the conveyance of the woun- c ded were forwarded, but the latter are r now returning without having achieved fl the object for which they were intended. ' Poor fellows! a bitter cold night at 1 least is before them. It is barely possible that some of them no longer heed cold or 1 heat. Their comrade*, who from cause I arc now coming to camp show plainly by ( their demeanor the heartfelt sorrow they i feel for them, but arc powerless in the < matter. ( Later.— Another talo of horror comes ! from the lava beds, not less distressing |m than the murder of General Uanby, and i vastly more humiliating. Three compa- t nies of United States- troop* (probably I one hundred and fifty men in all) went out ( to look for the sixty Modoc warriors, who < still remain iu their inaccessible strong- < hold. They were attacked by the savages I with such fury that all who did not run away were killed. Twenty-four men were ( left dead among the rocks, and fourteen of , the wounded managed to escape and get back to camp. Five arc still missing. , The officers seem to have behaved with , great gallantry. Three of them died like j brave men, and a fourth was carried off , the field badly wounded. It is not known . that any of the Modocs were killed in this ; encounter, although the friendly Indians co-operating with the United Slate* troops are reported to have taken four scn/p$ in another skirmish. The Modocs are armed with repeating rifles, and, being expert marksmen, they lie quietly in ambush un til the soldiers come within range, and then shoot with ns much deliberation and safety as if they were stalking game. They in variably aim for the officers first, and gen erally bring them down. There is then a panic, and the surviving soldiers start for their camp* with all possible dispatch. • When they have gone the warriors oomc out from their concealment, scalp the dead and dying, and mutilate their bodies in > the traditional Indian style. The officers killed in the late massacre were Captain Thomas, of the Fourth United States Ar tillery, a son of General Lorenzo Thomas, formerly Adjutant General of the Army ; Lieutenant Howe, son of Major Marshal Howe, on the retired list, and a son-in-law of General Barry, the commandant at Fortress Monroe; Lieutenant Wright, of the Twelth Infantry, son of the late Major General George Wright, and nephew of the late General Sumner. Lieutenant Harris, reported wounded, is a nephew of the late Bishop Melivune. A despatch to the New Y T ork Herald says that the United States troops engaged only numbered six ty-nine, of whom forty-nine were killed and wounded. A. B. Mcachcm, chairman of the Mo , doc Peace Commission, is a thorough con i vert against the peace policy, and an ud • vocate for complete subjugation. Han Francisco, April 29.—A dcs patch from Yrcka to-night says that the people in that place and in Hcott's Valley are arming, under the apprehension that • there will be a general Indian war.

Mendenhall's troops, numbering one hundred and thirty men, were expected to join General GUlem last night. Settlers iu the valleys of Oregon, above the lakes and lava bods, are moving away with their cattle and other property, being afraid to remain longer. There i* no further news from the front. r Case of McVeigh Against Underwood. A dispatch from Richmond. Va. says that the Supreme Court of Appeals have , rendered a decision in the ease of Under wood vs. McVeigh, affirming the judgment of the Corporation Court of Alexandria, which directed writs to issue ejecting Judge Underwood, of the United States District Court, from the jiosscssion of a handsome residence in Alexandria, pur -1 chased by him at a confiscation sale order ed by himself in 1864. McVeigh, owner 1 of the property, and who went to Rich mond during tho war, introduced testimo ny to show that Oakes Ames, John A. Al i ley, Humucl Hooper and Underwood and ! son had organized to cause confiscation proceedings to be instituted. The Su premo Court, in giving it* decision, accord ing to the dispatch, declared that 'n its ; opinion Underwood’s conduct had been such as to shuck the moral sense of every honest man. < The sale of the McVeigh property in Alexandria, Vu. was made under an agree ment of the attachment creditors of Mc -1 Vcigh, who had obtained judgments sub sequent to the confiscation decree of Un- < derwood and Oakes Ames, Alley and 1 Hooper and Underwood, tho latter parties < having on tho day of sale purchased the interest of the attachment creditors. The i 1 house and let purchased by Underwood 1 for his wife for the sum of S7OO, was 1 worth between SIO,OOO and $12,000. — ' . Judge Underwood had confiscated, in fee, i that and other property of McVeigh of the i value of $70,000 or $75,000, the whole of ( which brought only SIB,OOO or $20,000. The Cable Monopoly.—No words . can sufficiently set forth the unscrupulous | management of this odious monoply. The directors, notwithstanding their huge divi- ■ dends, being greedy for more money, an ' nounced that on tne first of May they 1 would reduced their enormous rates 25 per cent., in the expectation of increasing ' their receipt* by this concession. After 1 drawing ever)' one they could into new 1 arrangement* to meet this reduction with : increased (ditronago of the lino, they now i reverse this action, and announce, instead of a reduction of 25 per cent, an absolute , increase of 50 per cent, in their extrava . gant exactions. We cannot offer a more fitting comment on this action.than lo say , that such an abuse/if the public confidence on their part is nothing new, and will oc . casion no surprise.— N. Y Journal of Commerce. The ioe iu the Ht. Lawrence river con tinue* firm beyond Quebec. Political Hot*. Those who ray our Government should take possession of the telegraph lines as sert that in England such action has re sulted in cheap rates to the public, while the earnings of the lines pay interest on the capital invested. A recent disclosure in the British Parliament uncovers the fact that telegraph managers have availed themselves of their connection with the post-office system to use a largo surplus belonging to the post-office, and have even disturbed sonic of the saving bank defies its to defray their current expenses, and that last year the report was made to order by transferring to the capital account £645,- 000, which should have been charged to current expenses. Vet Parliament made an additional “capital” appropriation of 81,000,000. The department uas already exhausted this sum, and will have incurred before the end of the financial year, it is stated, a liability of over £BOO,OOO. If this is the result of Government control of telegraphic lines in England, what may we expect if the experiment is tried here ? Many thousand dollars of the people's money are to be expended in printing a series of postage-stamps of all denomina tions, of special designs, and Injuring the inscription, “Executive,” for the exclusive use of the President, in order that His Excellency’s correspondence may be dis tinguished above the plebeian missives of j the comiAon herd. These stamps, with j other separately distinctive ones for each j department of the Government, are to cost I nearly 82,000,000 for the coming year, or. 1 to be more exact, enough to cover the ■ mailing 0f02,190,060 half-ounce packages. All of which goes to show how far our republican civilization is in advance of the I effete barbarism of Great Britian, where 1 royal personages must fain content them selves with licking and sticking the same | vulgar pattern of postage-stump used by ; the meanest subject. Kent County Democratic Conven tion. —The Democratic Convention of Kent county, met at the court-house in Chestertown recently, to determine the manner of making nominations for the fall election. The convention decided, after considerable discussion, by u vote of 14 to 11, to adhere to the old disftict system of candidates for office. The minority were in favor of running the can didates throughout the county, the highest for each office to be the nominee. A res olution was adopted requiring the Domo- j cratic State Central Committee of Kent ; county to issue a call making (he nomiim 1 tions not later than the first week in June. ; Secretary Belknap, who is in New ■ Orleans, will investigate the Louisiana ‘ difficulties. He will consult with General Emory, Governor Kellogg and members of I the Custom House party,” and even representatives of the opposition govern- | meut who may offer their views for his ! consideration.” On his judgment the j authorities at Washington will base their future action in the difficulty. New Jersey is to have her Constitution revised by a special commission appointed by (ho Governor. Governor Parker has nominated the fourteen gentlemen— two from each Congressional district—who are to perform the labor. The Commission is equally divided politically, and contains several prominent men. Of course, their work is to be submitted to a vote of the people. William M. Butler, the recently elected colored Alderman iu Annapolis, is a candi date for the next legislature. How the Money Goes. Internal Improvements by the General Government a Source op Unbounded Extravagance and Cor ruption.—Among the laws of the session of 1872-3 is the Stiver and Harbor bill, with its $0,082,900. At the close, as usual, is a clause directing the Secretary’ of War to cause surveys to bo made of new works and to report an estimate of each. These new works are added to the list of the next Congress, and iu this way the annual expenditure is enormous. Among the new works of this last act is a survey and estimate of Pine River, St. (’lair county, Monistigue harbor, and Se bawring River, Michigan; Red River, from Morehead to Pembina; the Youg hiogeny River, Pa.; an extension of the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal, from Cum berland, Md., to the Ohio River; also of a work to connect the inland waters from Donaldsouville, La., to the Rio Grande River, by cuts and canals, so as to avoid the Gulf of Mexico ; Great Pee Doe Riv er in S. C.; Forked Deep River in Tenn. Money is provided for just a dozen ancient harbors in Michigan, and 8100,000 to dredge out the Bay of Superior, to keep its entrances open ; 890,000 for Chicago -840.000 for Calumet harbor ; 8180,000 for Ohio harbors on Lake Eric. Vermont gets 840,000; the Upper Monongubola River, in West Virginia, 800,000, and 880.000 goes for removing Red River raft in Arkansas—a work forty years oh), upon which immense sums have been ex pended, and the raft now is worse than ever. The Capo Fear River, N. 0., gets 8100,000 —another 40-yea r-older—and then a number of less rivers and creeks in Virginia. The same is true of New Jer sey, Maryland, Tennessee, Missouri, New York and Delaware. Rhode Island gets 880,000; Connecticut, 8140,000; Boda Lake, Texas, $30,000; Maine, 8174.000 ; Cocheco River, N. 11., SIO,OO0 —and so on and so forth to the tune of six mil lions and more of appropriations. Two thirds of these jobs are unnecessary, and four-fifths of them, as with the 80,000,000 for new post-offices and court-houses, came from log rolling. When the debt of the country and the taxes of the people are remembered, such a misuse of the public money is absolutely without excuse.—A r . Y. Ex prise. Franck.—The election in Paris is over and resulted in one point differently from that at first telegraphed. The correct returns give M. Barodct (the radical candidate for the vacancy) 180,146 votes; Count de Uemusat (Thiers-conservative,) 135,406 ; and Baron Stoffel (Stoffel monarchist.) 27,058. The total poll was 342,600, and Barodet hes a clear majority over de Romosat and Stoffel of 17,682 votes. The straight republicans have not only to congratulate themselves on their victory in Paris on Sunday, for on the same day they carried the elections in the departments of Correze, Jura, and Marne. These elections are interesting as showing the decided bent of the French people to accept republicanism ns not only the best temporary expedient but also to attempt to found a permanent government on its basis. The obstacles to be surmounted are enormous, but enormous obstacles have been passed. Two weeks ago the Assistant Treasurer of the United States Mint at Philadelphia mailed a check for SIOO gold to the order of John M. Woodward, New York. The letter was sent to Middleboro, N. J., and was there given to a Mr. George Wood ward of that place. He forged the name of John M. Woodward, and presented it to the cashier of the Adams Express Company for payment. They sent it to Philadelphia for verification, and the for gery was detected. Woodward has been committed for trial on the charge of forgery. An old soldier is living in Loudon who fought with Sir John Moore at Corunna, and was present at the battle of Waterloo. Ex -Governor W. L.
