EocB's lymph bu been exoladed from France under a law whioh ptobibits the importation of medioiue tbe constituents of which are unknown. Seeing the loorn-ful doubt of it* Tirtnes which the Franch doctors hareexpteased, the law is probably enforced with pleasure. Besides that, Eoob is a German. TmB is tbe time, above all others, when all those who owe bills and can pay them, �bonld do so without delay. They will not only disoharge their own obligations, but enable others to do likewise. A oon-aiderable amount of money would in this vay be released which would tend to make business more lively. BkA7.il is in a very amiable mood just now, and Blled with kindness towards this ooaotry. This, therefore, seems an aospi-oioni time to ask her to join us in adopting an extradition treaty wbicb will prevent that country from becoming tbe refuge of 80 many scoundrels whe Soe from our own.

PiTTSBUBO, Dec. 5.-A Meadville spe cial says:  Dalamater & Company, bankers, this city, made an asiigameut this morning for the booefit of their creditors. Beyond tbe fact stated no particulars are obtainable.   Messrs. Hotc!ikina and Mc-Clintock, the assignees, took immediate possession, and are preparing a statement for the public.  There is little excitement, altbongb the suspension caused a profound sensation.   The Detamaters have heretofore eujoyed the entire cou&denoe of the business public, aiid rumors conoern-iiig them have been treated as emanating from political rivals. Tbey have the 8y.mpathy of the community, and hopes are expressed that the suspenson will be but temporary. The banking house bad on file $100,000 of tbe stitc's funds, .tudguests sktebed up. Meadvtlle, Deo. 5.-Jadgments have been entered against the Sim to tba total of $115,000 up to date. The county funds amounting to $47,000 wre deposited in tbe bank, while the schoil board, sheriff's office and protboootary, were also depositors to an unknown snm the state will loe bothisg. Philadxlphia, Dec. 5.-St�te Treasurer Boyer admitted to-diy that the slate had on deposit 1100,000 'ith the banking house of Delamater & O. He said tbat it was covered by a bone, so that the state would lose nothing, 14-. Boyer left for Meadville to night. expkessioss 01 regret. Expressions of regreWere beard on all sides, for Dolamstor wa personally a very popular man. The faitre oumine so soon after his defeat for Govrnor, was regarded as a doubly Boverablow. It is said that during tbe oam^ign Dolamater's personal notes were ndorsed and dia-countad by Philadelpla business men, who ware his suppoicts, but that the loss to tbem is compattlvoly small. Some of tbe banks are said o hold bis paper, but not in amount* siGoiant to cause any trouble. It was reprted that Senator Delamatur was a he�y lodorser of Ex-Senator MacFarland'. notes, and that he was a loser. This wa assigned as one of the causes of the atbarrassmant of the firm. a StRPRlSE a' riTTSBDRG. PiTTSBURa.Dec. 5.-The failure of Delamater & Co., of lladvlile, of whioh George W. Delamater late candidate for Governor on tba Rfpuilioan ticket, is tbe head, caused some sunrise on account of tbe prominence of Mr. Delamater. Tbe failure was the subject of much comment, both in poltioal and busiocsa circles. Bankers here have always rated Dalamater & Co. vegr high, and Ibeir credit in this city w,a first class. The bank was a private ooicero, but was rated very high in baokibg circles as having a capital of from $300,00 to $500,000. The bank did not do mioh buelcees in this city. During the oanpaigu Senator Delamater had some moiey on deposit at tbe Katiuual bank of Conmeicn, and did some little business tbrougi tbis bauk. Tbe account at pescnt, however, is square. Delamatar c Co., have conducted a banking busicea at Meadville for a number of years, snA did au extensive business throughout the oil rogiuns. No information could be secured in tbis city as to tbe amount of tie failure. Old men who have bad more o; leas buaioess with the firm are all snrprked. Tbey entertain tbe opinion, however, that the firm will be able to pull tbroub. the kews is 3aeki6burg. babri6bdr0, Deo. 5.-Tho announce mcnt of the failure oftba banking firm of Delamater & Co., ootpled with the fact that the bank contaiied �100,000 of tbe State'a moneys, caused coLsiderable eX' citvmeut in this city, aad everybody wanted to know wnethar or not tbe state would lose iu deposit. State Treasurer Bjyer was not in tbe city last night, but one of the attaches of tbe treasury department, who was asked about the matter, said that the amount is secured by the personal bond of ex-Senntor Delamater's father and the bond of the firm. Everjlbiog, however, depends on the extent of the failure. In the event of the iuabtltty uf the Delamatera to meet their obligations the bondsmen of Treasurer Boyer will be bold respousible. Au effort was made last evening to secure the names of these bondsmen at the State department but there seem* to be a disputiiiou un tho part of some of tbe official's there to keep tbem from tbe public. mb. delahateb'8 bd81hb5b conkectionb George B. Delamater, the father of tbe Senator, who baa been favorably kuowa in the western part of tbe State as a business man, has been accredited with a fortune of from $200,000 to $300,000, while the fortune of tbe Senator himself has been estimated at aboat $100,000. Tbe latter, as is generally known, studied law at the Ilaivard law scbool, and was admitted to the bar, but after devoting about three years only to the profession took advant age of openings for large business enterprises in which be has been hitherto quite successful. He has been at the bead of the banking bouse of Delamater & Co., whose suspension has just been announced, a director of tbe Merchant's national bank of Meadville, president of the ooapany and owner of tbe conttolling interest in the Meadville and Linesville railroad, president of tbe Meadville fuel ga* company and connected with other local enterprises. �...-- The Shakespeare Book Bcceptloa.
