Republican 4,7g| CRAIG AHKAD. Tbe Craig I'nited States and European News Association is beating the old New York Associated Press so badly that the lat" ter is scarce remembered amongst tbe new* agencies of the coun'ry, though once s<* po* tent. The best joke of the season is the fad that the New York Herald, which has been the bitter opponent of the Craig Association, wa* indebted to Mr Craig's enterprise for the newa of the success of young Henpett in the oceau yacht race. The wire land connections with the cable were broken for some days, and Craig, by pigeons, pony express, or some other means known to this news Napoleon, got bis dispatches with the news of the arrival of tbe yachts in Europe, some hours ahead of the >low-going Associated Fret * concern, and had tbe satis.action of sending the 11 rat intor. matlon of his son's success to Bennett, senior. "Who was thus enabled to issue an extra Herald on Saturday night. Mr Benneit. who dearly loves a stroke of new? enterprise like this, uow. It is said, to cut connection with tbe old concern, and bitch horses with the Craig Association. EVEN THIRTY BONO*. An official statement just published calls attention to the fact that although all the coupon bonds of the Government are issued payable to bearer, so that they will pass by delivery and are good, although lost or stolen, when in the hands of a Uma tide holder, the case ia different with the 7.3 ?' , which are issued in blank, but with the words "or order,' instead ol "or bearer," imprinted on the lace. So long as a7 30 note remains thus in blank, it passes by delivery like a coupon bond; aid a bona fide purchaser for value can collect tbe same, notwithstanding it has been lost or stolen. But in case the holder of the 7.3o litis the blank space with hia name, th? note then becomes bis property, payable to him or order; and he ctnnot thereafter be deprived of his title by any Ion or larceny of lhe note, any more than the bolder of a check or draft payable to his order; and this is the law, notwitbetindiug his name may have been so skillfully extracted by acid or otherwise as to leave no trace of the name.

The I'nited States courts were open in Indiana, and other Northern Spates, for the trial ol criminals.
