The thing is supposed to be man- aged by "workingmenV leaders, but inflationism will be the end-all of it. It was engineered in New York. The members of the conference are not dele- gates from any organization or body, but were invited or appointed to take part in the movement, at their own ex- pense by a "national invitation com- mittee" which was called into existence bv the Harrisburgh "anti-monopoly convention" of march last. The con- ference, which is to last several days, is strictly private. Its circular says that it would not. in any sense, be open to the public, and that its conclusions would not be announced until after its adjournment. Only authenticated members were to be admitted, and all reporters are rigidly excluded. THE mania for building and endow- in o- collets has overtaken our civilized At South Canadian, Indian Territory, last week, the corner stone of a female academy was laid with ap- rropnate ceremonies, hundreds of peo- ple red and white, being present, and similar exercises are soon to take place in the same Territory, at Muscogee, when the corner-stone of an education- al institution for the use of the Chero- kee Choctaw, Chickasaw, Creek and Scminole tribes will be placed in posi- tion We presently expect to find'the family of poor Lo as liberaily ornamented with titular literary insig- nia as their pale face brethren. of ten cents the half-peck, piled and run- ning over, while baskets are selling from fifty to sixty cents. Peach ice cream is the popular delicacy, with the comforting persuasion.- that pure fruit is used for flavoring it. While speak- ing of the products of this part of the country, it may be mentioned that clams are unusually fine this season, a fact which rejoices the hearts of poli- ticians mightily. BUSINESS. Were the season as propitious in business as it is in nature, there would be nothing left to wish. But the ghastly list of failures in each morn- ing's papers makes business men look sick; and there is a clenching of hands and looking out for the worst that is not healthy in the chill and fever weather of September. The only people who look at, all at ease are the bankrupts. The worst is over with them, and there remains the fresh start, set off by the prospect of hoard- ing carefully all profits for years to come, to pay in full the creditors who compounded for fifty cents ou the dol- lar. Every day brings its lists of failures. This week the great book firm of Lee Shepard, Boston, went under, taking with it their New York house, liabili- ties, assets not yet known. But it is to the credit of our business men that they are doing everything in their power to raise the fallen firm, and set it on its feet again. The pub- lishers in New York, who are the principal creditors, say to them "Pay what'you can and go which they will do. This is what honesty and in- tegrity is worth. L.ee Shepard fail- from no fault of their own, and struggled desperately for three years before they went down. They lost in good hard earned money, in the Boston Ore, and the de- pression in business, and the shrinkage in values, finally brought them to their knees. The thousands of people who read Oliver Optic, and the other authors they have brought out, will be glad to know that they will probably resume in ten days. Such men can- not Ions be kept down. Friend Pitts, the well-known Broadway ladies' fur- nishing goods man, went by the board Wednesday, and Thursday, Union Adams, the better-known men's fur- nisher, followed suit. These are the best known, but there are a dozen a day in the City. But despite this the business men feel a slight revival of their hopes. Whether itTwill last remains to be seen, but it is certain that there is an in- crease in business for the week. There are a great many merchant city, and they are" buying, thou-u extensively. They seem to be "sorting up.1' rather than 'buying full stocks, but even that is better than nothing. The wheels are moving, even if they do creak. But I do not believe tuat New lork will ever have the trade it once to read the dailies with their lists of woe. Since New York abolished the system of Metropolitan Police, appoint- ed by a board controlled by the State Legislature at Albany, too far off to be influenced by small local interests, and j pat its safety into the hands of the low i ward politicians, who control present j police appointments, that not much better than that of ancient Sodom wishing to speak harshly of those who have suffered their fate. I men- tioned a week ago this incident: on a rainy evening not long since, a gentle- man walking down Lexington avenue one of the quietest streets of the town, was set upon by two roughs, one of whom snatched his handsome watch and chain worth five or siz hundred dollars. The gentleman seized the thief and was getting the better of him when the policeman of the beat came up to the help of the began thumping him over the head with his club, till he was forced to let go his hold of the robber, who fled with his booty. The gentleman made his way down-town and entered his club, covered with blood, his head cut open by the pjliceman's blows, a pretty picture for the centre of civili- zation in the nineteenth century. When he went to the inspector of police for redress, he was called on to identify the policeman; but as on the night of the assault that worthy had been wrapped in Havelock and waterproof, it was impossible to detect bim, and all the comfort the complainant had was a jeering laugh from the inspector, and the brutal answer that he must have been too drunk that night to take care of his own watch, and lost it. Occurrences of this nature are be- coming alarmingly frequent. The po- lice assert that the increase of crime is attributable to the number of men out ef work, but they lie when they so say. The work done by foot-pads and burglars shows the work of skilled men. The fact is, the police are in partnership with the thieves. None are caught. The burglars who killed Noe are still at large, and no clue has been found to them; and the same may be said of every case that has occurred. The investigation now in progress will, it is to be hoped, do something toward remedying this perplexed condition of things. No decent man feels safe at night in New York without his pistol or sword-cane. The oaly hope of a better state of things is" to have the present grow worse, till honest citizens are obliged, in self-defense, to assert themselves, and take the rule of the hands of the degraded, reckless class who have got hold of it. Ii good men are too busy or too careless to look after public interests, there are plenty of worse ones who will be glad to do so. THE DEATH OF BALSTON, the San Francisco banker, is not felt East as it is in the State where he was a leading power. When the news of the failure of the Bank of California and the terrible death of its President came to the city there was a flutter, but that was all. California does her business direct with Europe ard Asia, without the intervention of New York, and failures there have but little effect here. A few houses having branches in San Francisco were hurt, and the Chinese residents of the city were touched, but nothing serious happened. Had such a failure occurred in St. Louis or Chicago it would have shook things. POLITICS. John jjlvirlsbey has locked horns with Tammany in dead earnest, and there is going to be a struggle. The prize-fighter and gambler heads one faction of the Democracy in this city, and a much worse man heads the other. Thev hate each other so cordially that I don't believe it possible for them to tret together at all; and if the respect- ability of the city had sense enough to take advantage of the situation they might capture it and get decent gov- ernment once more. But they won't do it. They have their goods to sell, Saratoga to visit, and primary Lacctinss are annoving things to man- age; and so they" will stick to their merchandise and'let the thieves govern them. At least this is what they al- wavs have done, and I see no indica- tions of a change for the better.
