WITH GLADSTONE'S HELP V THE MEASURES WHICH SALTS' BURY'S CABINET WILL PRESS. CK. GLADSTONE'S STATEMENT OP HOW FAB HE WILL OO IN BUPPORT Off THB NEW BBITI3H VJN1STRY.' LOTION, Jujy Michael Hioks- moved in tha House of Commons this evening that the Government have precedence in the business of the House on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. He depre- cated the idea of the motion being regard- ed as one of confidence in the Govern- ment, It was simply proposed and sub- mitted for the convenience of tho House, to enable the.House to transact the re- maining business of the session aa quiokly as possible. The Government had no desire to screen their policy and actions from criticism, but tho main busi- ness now should be the subjects of supply and ways and means, business vraa very backward. In addition to tho budget tho Government intended to proceed with the consideration of tho Federal Council bill, the Australia and East India Loan bill, tha Irish Educational Endowment bill, and tho Secretary for Scotland bill. The Government, tho Cliancellor said, was also extremely anxious to deal with the very important Irish bill, but it be impossible to DOSS this measure at this period of tho session if it met with opposition. The Govern- ment did not intend to renew tho Crimes act. In regard to this measure Mr. Glad- stone had said that the Liberal Govern- ment intended to renew certain salu- tary provisions, but the speaker was unaware of the nature of those provisions because ho had found no trace whatever of any bill having been prepared by tho lato Government. [Cheers.] The Govern- ment, the speaker continued, did not pro- pose to procexd with, tho Crofters bill or otheaTfittiteiitious bills, but it thought the MedifegJielief Disqualification bill ought to -with soon. Portions of tho criminal law amendment would also be- come law this session if tho House cranted time for their discussion. Mr. Gladstone supported the motion be- cnuse ho thought it was desirable to speedily wind up tho business of tho ses- sion. In regard to foreign policy Mr. Gladstone said ho believed It was the duty of the lato Government to support tho present Government in the prosecution of Important national aims. The statement was in tho main correct that Russia Uad promised the Zulllcar Pass to tho Amour. Tho Government, Mr. Gladstono would have his best support In all reasonable efforts to brine that question to a settlement. Referring to the Egyptian question, Mr. Gladstsne admitted that tho Uovernment ouclit to avoid commlttiuc itself and shoukTbo allowed time in which to obtain the fullest and besl advice. Tho question of finance was of the llrat im- portance to Egypt, ana until it wns settled nothing could be done. Mr. Gladstone, in connection with Irish affairs. said ho regretted that a controversial matter had been introduced in this debate. As a matter of historic justice he mentioned that at the very time the Liberal Party proposed tho cnereivo measure, that measure was accompanied by remedial measures. Tho Government, he said, incurred a great responsibility In abolisnmg tho crimes act. It was not tho business of the Opposition to wish tho Gov- ernment to fail If the Government could" protect property by moaas of ordinary law. he wished it godspeed. Lord'HandoIpn. Churchill thanked Mr. Gladstone tor his considerate reception of the motion of ihe Chancellor oC the Ex- chequer. Lord Kandoloh disclaimed, on behalf of the Government, any rcsuonsi- bility for tho evacuation of the Soudan, iie said that when the Government as- sumed oluce the order for evacuation had been carried out, and could not be re- biV Hart-Dyke, Chief Secretary for Ireland, replying to Mr. Lowis, who disap- direct negotiations with Russia, and It is asserted that m this course he bad tho per- mission of the Ameer, but this is doubted.

PETERSBURG, Va., July James St Clalr, of Canada, spent last Winter In tbo South, add in January last met 111 as Grace Qnllagber at her homo in St. James County, Miss. Mr. St. Clalr was very muoh prepossessed by Miss Gallagher's beauty. After a brief acquaintance Miss Gallagher wont to Nashville, Tonn, Mr. St, Clalr followed at once, renewed his attentions, be- came Miss Gallagher's warmest f riend.and finally, under promlso of marriage, accomplished nor ruin. The friends of the young woman then In- sisted that St. (Jlalr should marry Gallagher without delay. St. Clalr yielded to tbelr de- mands and named an early day. Ttion. under tho pretext of going to Ciarcmont, In Virginia, a northern colony near this city. In order to pro- pare his home for his bride. St. Clalr lett Nash- ville, promising to return In a weok. Tho wnok DOAsed and St. Clair did not return. Tho weeks glided into months, but nothing wns beard of tho wllv Canadian. Miss Gallagher's friends thon em- ployed a doteotlvo, who cumo to Virginia, found St. Clalr at Claromont, and returned to Nash- ville and reported. Miss Gallagher at once came to Claromont in charge of Detective Drako, of Nikinvlllc. who was armed with tho proper ca- pers. At Claromont St. Clalr was confronted with his victim. Detective Drako told him that ho could either marry Miss Gallagher or return to Naanvillo under arrest. St. Clalr chose tho former alternative. Tho bridal party wont to Burry Court House on Saturday morning, tho 4th Inst. Tho County Clerk was off on an ex- cursion. Tho party waited until midnight, when tho clerk returned. A marriage license was at onco provided, und fit midnight In tbo hotel parlor Miss Gallagher was duly mado Mrs. James BU Clalr. THE OLDER TREASURY OFFICIALS. AS IBREOULARITY IN PRINTING THE COM- POUND INTEBEBT NOTES EI-QOT. NOTES DECLINES TO BE A. DIRECTOR. WASHINGTON, July Some of the older Treasury officials are muoh annoyed at the discovery juat mado that anumber of fifty- dollar compound interest notes issued In 1861, and recently rodeemed.bear upon their face tho wronR date of tho act under they were Issued. This Is also the case with a lot of ton-forty coupons issued tho same year, whloh aro now fomnd to bo dated a year in advance of their enabling act. In passing upon the accounts and vonoh- ers of the United States Treasurer the First Auditor's office discovered a compound in- terest note already canceled whloh from its general appearance created the SUH- pioion that it might be counterfeit. The Buspeoted note, with a few genuine ones, was sent to the Bureau of Printing and Engraving for expert opinion. They woro all pronounced gpod, but at- tention was called to tho fact that tho date of tho act authorising their issue had evidently been chanced on the plate. This caused First Auditor Cheno- wlth to hunt aftor the net referred to, but he could not find It in tho Congressional Globe on tho dato Indicated, Jmly 2, 1804. Further search among redeemed com- pound interest iotos showed that some were apparently authorized Juno 30, 1804, and somo July 3, J1804. In the ConyresstonaL Itecord of July 2 was found an act passed June 30. but nothing subsequent to that In tho way of amendment rewarded the closest search. Secretary Manning could nothing about it, neither could Treas- urer Jordan. Finally when all the offi- cials got together tho conclusion was reached that there was nothing fraudu- lent in the matter. Whoever had Issued tho order for tho engraving of the com- pound Interest note plate had road passed Juuo 30, 18G4, in the Record of July 1804. and- had taken It for granted the aot was passed on the dato under which it was printed. Then employes who had been in tho department during tho war remembered that this error nad beon discovered In a few days and that orders were given to change tho dato OB tho In all these years noth- ing had occurod to call close attention to the notes and the circumstance was for- gotten. Tho First Auditor was certain at flrst that a graud iteal had unearthed, but now that It is satisfactorily explained he thinks that tho circumstance is evi- dence of tho condition of things at the seat of Federal Government during tho last vear of tho war. Tho oMsoov- ery has sot tho clerks in tho de- partment rummaging through a lot of old redeemed war issues. Thoy havo found that tho dato of tho enabling aot of tho ton-forty coupons was printed Maroh 3, 1SG3, when it should have been 18C4. Other errors of this kind will prob- ably be found, now that everybody s at- tention is directed to dates. Controller Cannon does not think there is anything surprising In these cases, considering tho time and circumstances under whlon tho money was issued. Informatioa has reached here that Sur- veyor Caklwell, of Cincinnati, in addition to his recent appointment of two ex-oon- vlcU, has now appointed a third who has a criminal record in several parts of the country, having been confined in Hamil- ton County Jail one year.and having served a year in Bine Sing for obtaining and other property under false pretenses. It has also just been discovered that Com- missioner Colman, of the Apriaultural Department, upon the urgent recom- moudation of Representative Converse and Capt. Barger, Chairman of the State Democratic Committee, appointed as State Agricultural Agent for Ohio a man who turns out to havo been tried and oonvloted for stealing. He served nine mouths in jail in Lake County, Ohio. Ex-Gov. E. F. Noyes telegraphed yester- day his declination of the appointment by the President as Government Director of the Union Pociflo Railroad. The reasons lisa IP iied for declining aro not given out fcere, but It Is presumed Gov. Noyes will furnish them. It is ascertained that the appointment was -made at the solicitation of Gov. Hoadly, and that his recommendation of Noyes was verbal, not written. It surmised hero tnat the excuse given by Mr. Noyes for declining will be found to bo an unwillingness to cause embarrassment to tho Administra- tion. Some of Gov. Hoadly's friends aro suro that he has asked Gov. Noyes to de- cline. A dispatch from Cincinnati says that Gen. Noyes has telegraphed the President, cordially thanking him for the appoint- ment to a scat iu the Union Pacific lloard, but declining to accept because of the embarrassment which the Adminis- tration might otherwise, experience owing to his connection with tho Hayes-Tildon matter. Gun. Noyes says ho has nothing to defend In his course in that contest, but there are friends of the President who claim to think otherwise, and are disposed to persist in their view. Gov. Hoadly Is still uncommunicative as to bis reasons for suggesting Gen. Noves for the place to whioh he was appointed. ALL OF OBN. AUaOB'8 AVAILABLE TBOOPS ORDEBED INTO THE INDIAN TEBB1TOBT. WABmwoTON, July dispatch was received at the Interior Department to-day from tho Indian Agent at Fort Eeno. Indian Ter- ritory, asking that more troops be sent to that post, to bo (In readlneai should tho Choyonne Indians (to upon tho warpath. Tho dispatch was referred to the Secretary of War, who directed Gen. Augur, at Fort Lcavonworth, to sond all hla available troops to the Territory without delay. At tho Cabinet mooting to-day the outbreak of the Cboycunes was reported by the Secretary of War. who said tnat steps bad been taken to prevent any more of tho Indians from 'caving thoro ervatlon. Ho stated that a regiment is now on Iti way to tho scene of tho troubles, and other troops aro available, but that tho num- bers aro not sufficient la owe of a general out- Ix-Dolegate G. H. Oury. of Arizona, to-day filed with tho Commissioner of Indian Affairs a letter upon the general subject of tho Indian troubles in that Territory. He says tho people or Arizona aro restless and discontented under the existing state of things, and appeal to tho Government to relieve their fears by dis- arming tho Indians on the reservations in the Territory, especially those occupying tho White Mountain'Indian Reservation aland near the San Carlos Agency. These Indiana need no guns, ho says, as there Is not sufficient game In tho country to make hunting an oWecV. and If there was there Is nothing to drlvo thorn to tho pursuit of It. Thoy are fed. lat- tcned. and maintained by tho liberality of tho Government In a style that few DOOP laboring men In tho country can afford. There Is no exertion required of them, and If therd waa, the requirement would bo mado In vain. for thoy wUl not work. They have no enemies to defend themselves against so long as they abjure tholr Inclinations to plunder and conduct themselves as othor peacea- ble people. Tho much talked of cow- boy, so far as Arizona Is concerned, has bcconio a thing of tho past, and there Is no element In the Territory answering to the Eastern Idea of that terror. Mr. Oury says that tho only true solution of the Indian problem Is to be found in their removal from Arizona and their settle- ment In the Indian Territory. DENV.EII, Col., July Eaton lost night received two petitions from citizens of Lit Plata County asking that State troops be placed between Ute Mountain and the Mancoa Itlvor, to protect the settlers from Indians. Tho Gov- ernor says tho exigencies of tbo caso do not in his opinion warrant him in complying with tho request. _______ _ ______ JTHE MEXICAN EDITORS.

Tho Democrats declared that John Martin, a Republican and friend to the Republican candidate for Sheriff, bad killed him, while tno Republicans nlllrmcd most positively that a shot intended to murder ono of tholr number had hit Uradloy by mistake.- Tho result of this, tho beginning of all subse- quent conflict, was tbo inauguration ofafoud which la now In existence stronger thttn ever be- fore.

He was arrustcd and taken to tbe jail of another county for eafo keeping, where ho remained for sovorol weeks. Mean- while tho Tollver famllv, abetted by Oooding and Day aa woll as others, talked up such a suite of feeling that tho lynching of Martin soumod very probable, nnd Indeed was openly boasted about, but inasmuch as h'- was confined In the Jail of another county, whose law-abiding peo- plo would not tolcrato an attempt of this sort, a different plan was formulated by tho director-general of tho enemies of Murtm. This plan was the preparation of a Jorgea order of delivery for tho body of Martin, to obtain which It was necessary for tbo lawful authorities of Rowan County to send an order In writing demanding tbo surren- der by tbo Jailor of Clark .County, whither ho bad been remanded for "safe keepmsr" of bis person to tho authorized agent or agents of Kowan County.

Tlie county authorities declared tho order ol de- livery to bo u forgery, and Miss Buo Martin, a yountt sister of the dead man. openly avowed that IS. Taylor Young, tho County Attorney of Rowiin. uttered It. More ill-feeling followed, talk deepened into throats, threats Into counter- threats, nnd these very quickly Into action. One day Z. T. Young, tbo County Attorney, came Into Morohcad with a holo In hla apparel. I was shot at Irom ho said; "thoy want to murder me." "NonsenN.1." spoke Miss Martin, "that man was never shot at; bo merely desires to uxcito our enomlo.i. Ho Is tbo devil of it all." And tblo latter statement mu4t hove carried weight, for all went smoothly tor tho tlmo be- ing. Meanwhile a young man named Daum- partcn. whoso reputation for qulut courago was, greater than tbat of nny man In Eastern Kco- tucuy, bad boon chosen as a Deputy by Sheriff "We'll bavo peace now certain.

About this period or perhaps before Alvln Bowline, of tho so-called Tollver faction, had killed tbo Town Marshal of Mount Sterling, for which ho bad beon Incarcerated at that place. Mount Sterling Is tbo county scat of Montgom- ery, tlio h. mo of ox-United States Senator Cerro Oordo Williams. For this or somo oluor reason Jeff Bowling, a mere stripling, but notwith- standing a youth whoso accuracy of aim was not excelled by Simon Kenton. and whoso esti- mate of human lire would compare wltb tbat of tbo dead outlaw, Josso James, carno to Ken- tucky from Missouri, Ho was much concerned about bis brother Alvln, and gave unmistakable signs of an Intention to continue tbo feud. Accompanied by tho ex-Sheriff, John Day, young Bowling "engaged" Sheriff Humphreys and friend John Pcarce. Tho latter two attempted thole nrreat. using a shotgun and a Winchester rlllo, Democrats trying their hands wltb pistols only. Nobody was hurt In this en- counter, at tbe conclusion of whlcb Humphreys and Pearco retreated to Judge fury's hotel, with tho aid of whuso son they soon barricaded the place, correctly anticipating trouble.

Young, Qoodlnir. and Day repre- sented tho Tollver faction, Cary and Loiran tho Martin laclion. Two conferences took placo and tho result WAS a mutual agreement to keep' tho peace, all signing a papor to that effect written by ex-Cblof-Justlce Hargls. of tbelr own county, at Oov. Knott's request. PC a co was now proclaimed and all parties went homo. Morclicud hadn't a town Marshal, however, and pretty soon her Democratic con- stituency found ono In tho person of Craljr Toll- vtr, whom the Republicans declared was u dont of a contiguous county.
