A Telegram on the 9th said operations were suspended Between Elout Aud Tiru ova because of inclement weather. Secretary Sherman a report. The report of Secretary Sherman begins with the usual detailed statement of receipts and expenditures. The receipts of the last fiscal year were $269,000,586, or $18,481,452 less than for the previous year and the expenditures $238,f>00,Dos, a decrease of $18,481,4o2, including the deficiency of $2,003,861 in the naval appropriation. The receipts of the current fiscal year will reach $265, too and the expenditures $232,4 10,643. For the fiscal year ending june a it 1879, the Revenue is estimated at $269,250,000 and the expenditures at $280,-688,796. Assuming that Congress will not increase the aggregate National taxation at a time when All industries Are oppressed by the weight of local taxation the Secretary recommends that Hie aggregate appropriations for the fiscal year ending june 30, 1879, exclusive of interest and sinking fund should not exceed $140, Kroon. This will require the approbation to he reduced at least. $11,000,000 below the estimates. Reduction in Public expenditures cannot be secured merely by a reduction of appropriations. It must be accompanied by a careful revision of the Laws which fix the salary and number of employees by a reduction of t he amount expended on Public works now in Progress by postponement of All new works not indispensable for the Public service and by judicious scrutiny of disbursements. The Secretary relates at length the funding operations by which an annual reduction of interest on the Public debt has been effected As follows by the Sale of $185,000,000 4�?Ti per cent. Bonds. A. $2,775,000 by the a Sale of $50,000,000 4 per cent Bonds. 1,000,000 agpreuatinpf.$3,775, Tho Secretary does not doubt that if no questions had Arisen disturbing the Public or Dot the 6 per cent. Bonds would he rapidly paid off by the proceeds of t he 4 per cent. Bonds sold at in Coin or its equivalent. The highest Public credit can he secured Only by a constant Observance of every Public engagement construed according to its letter and spirit. Thus far this course has been faithfully pursued by the United states. Wit bout it our ample resources and ability to Are of no Avail. At a time when we Are enjoying such credit and rapidly securing the Benefit of it by the reduction of the rate of interest from 6 to 4 per cent., it would seem to he a grievous error to raise a question about the Coin in which the interest is payable. Self interest alone without respect to Pride in Public credit would Laid us to secure so great a Benefit As would be the saving of one third of the interest of the Public debt. By the reduction of interest on the Public debt now redeemable from 6 to 4 per cent., there would he a saving of $13,200, annually and on the whole of the debt redeemable by Issi a saving of $22,006,205. Any measure that creates distrust or doubt will arrest this process and by disabling the United states from borrowing will compel the continued payment of the High rate of 6 per cent. If therefore the Public interests demand the Issue of Silver dollars a subject hereafter discussed it is respectfully submitted to Congress that an express exception he made requiring that Gold Coin alone shall be paid for principal or interest on Bonds issued to Public creditors since feb. 12, 1873, the amount of which is $592,990,700. Even As to Bonds issued prior to that Date policy and interest require us to them in Coin then in circulation and contemplated by both parties As the medium of payment. The Secretary next relates the operations of the Treasury under the resumption aet of 1875. There have been issued to National Banks $16,123,995 of circulating notes and there have been redeemed and cancelled $12,-899,196 of United states notes leaving $351,-340,288 outstanding. Under the same aet the Secretary has sold $15,000,000 of 4 o and $25,. 000,000 of 4 per cent Bonds at in Coin Asili $4,000,000 for the redemption of notes the balance remaining in the Treasury. These operations aided greatly no doubt by the favourable condition of our foreign Commerce have advanced the Market value of United states notes to 97,� per cent., or within nearly 2><f per cent of Coin. They have also con foke1gn intelligence. A co Quimbo Chili dispatch of the 4th reports the loss of the Steamer Atacama. Of ninety persons on Hoard Only eighteen were saved. _ Jules ferry on behalf of the budget of Init tee declared in the French chamber of deputies on the 4th that the majority would Only Grant the budget to a parliamentary ministry.

President Macmahon insists on nominating the ministers of War Marine and foreign affairs himself. A Rumor of Earl Beaconsfield a resignation of the British premiership was circulating in London on the 7th. President Macmahon stated on the 8th that he intended again to dissolve the chamber. The Republican papers Are exceedingly violent. An uneasy feeling is apparent in England lest a settlement of the Eastern question unfavourable to England May be forced upon her by the three emperors Alliance. The Steamer bothnia sailed from Liverpool on the 8th with 100,000 in Gold for the United states. Private telegrams of the 9th reported the Popes condition growing worse. Art prepared to attend to All the want of their customers in their line of making and repairing wagons of All sizes and patterns. They also invite attention to the facilities for so Dino and the other thousand and one thing mad at by Blacksmith a Mckinney mar2s-�?T75-tf South end Mill treet the East. In the Case of the people is. Sex comptroller Connolly of the new York tammany ring the jury rendered a verdict on the 4tli against the defendant for $8,000,000. The contest in the Vanderbilt will Case has been resumed. The Wolf Boro n. In savings Bank has closed. Depositors will lose about 15 per cent. Wah notes. The russians have 280 guns in position before Erze Roum. The turks have captured Popkow and Kez Rora. The Snow around Erze Roum is three feet deep. Sulieman Pasha gained another Victory Between Elena and Tirnovan on the 7th. Moukhtar Pasha a Force at Erze Roum is to he reinforced. It now numbers 25, xxx men according to a statement published on the 7th, the Czar thinks it is better to continue the War than to conclude a patched up peace which will make another War necessary sooner or later. The russian loss since the commencement of the War is 74,000 men. An official russian dispatch of the 8th from begot says the Battles at Marland and Elena on the 4th were More unfortunate for the Kus plans than reported at first. Fifty officers and 1,800 men were killed and wounded and Elu sively demonstrated the practicability of restoring United states notes to in Coin by the time fixed by Law and that without disturbing either Domestic or foreign Trade or Commerce. Every step Bas been accompanied with growing business with the Advance of Public credit and the steady appreciation of United states notes. The Export of Bullion has been arrested and our Domestic Supply has accumulated in the Treasury. The exportation of other Domestic products has been largely increased with great advantage to All industries. The course adopted under the resumption act As herein set Forth if pursued will probably be followed with like favourable results and a sufficient fund for the maintenance of resumption will doubtless accumulate in the Treasury at or before the Date fixed by Law. The provision for free banking Bas aided this process by allaying imaginary fears that would otherwise have been aroused by the withdrawal of United states notes. Hie Secretary cannot too strongly urge the maintenance of a policy that will make Good the Promise contained in the United states notes when issued a Promise repeated in the aet a to strengthen the Public credit a approved March 18. Im09, and made definite and effective by the resumption aet. As the amount of Hank circulation issued May not he sufficient to effect the contemplated reduction of Legal tender circulation the Secretary recommends that authority he Given to gradually fund All notes in excess of that amount in 4 per cent Bonds or the desired reduction May be accomplished by the coinage of the Silver Dollar to he exchanged for United states notes on demand. As for the notes redeemed after Jan. I 1879, the Secretary is of the opinion that if not in excess of $300,000,000, they May be reissued. This construction however should he distinctly settled by Law. The notes Are convenient and form a Good Imper currency and with the Aid of an ample Reserve of Coin a certain amount can always be kept in circulation. The people should have the Benefit of this circulation. The Secretary ventures to express the opinion that flu Best currency for tile people of the United states would be a carefully limited amount of i United states notes promptly redeemable on presentation in Coin and supported by ample reserves of Coin and supplemented by a system of National Banks organized under general Laws free and open to All with drawer to Issue circulating notes secured by i United states Bonds deposited with the government and redeemable on demand in United states notes or Coin. Such a system will secure to the people a Safe currency of equal value in All parts of the country receivable for All dues and easily convertible into Coin. Interest can thus he saved on so much of the Public debt As can be conveniently maintained in permanent circulation leaving to National Banks the proper business of such corporations of providing currency for the varying changes the ebb and flow of Trade. After further discussion of the subject of Legal tender notes the Secretary reviews the condition of the National Banks citing from the report of the comptroller of the currency. He makes sundry recommendations and also urges upon Congress the importance of making some provision for the Safe keeping and employment of Small deposits by the people. He recommends that authority be granted to Issue certificates for Small deposits convertible into 4 per cent Bonds now authorized by Law the proceeds to be used solely for the redemption of Bonds hearing a higher rate of interest and now redeemable at . The proposed Issue of the Silver Dollar is Dis cussed at length including the history of the Silver coinage and of the Legal Standard and the impracticability of maintaining Silver Side by Side with Gold is pointed out. The Secretary has Felt it to be his duty to earnestly urge upon Congress the serious objections to the free coinage of Silver on such conditions As will de monetize Gold greatly disturb All the financial operations of the government suddenly revolutionizing the basis of our currency throw upon the government the increased Cost of coinage arrest the refunding of the Public debt and impair the Public credit with no apparent advantage to the people at Large. The Secretary believes that All the beneficial results hoped for from a Liberal Issue of Silver Coin can he secured by issuing this Coin in pursuance of the general policy of the aet of 1853, in Exchange for United states notes coined from Bullion purchased in the open Quality of redeem ability. To still further secure ii fixed relative value of Silver and Gold the United states might invite an International convention of commercial nations. Even such a convention while it might Check the fall of Silver could not prevent the operation of that higher Law which places the Market value of Silver above human control. Issued upon the conditions Here stated the Secretary is of opinion that the Silver Dollar will be a great Public advantage hut that if issued without limit upon the demand of the owners of Silver Bullion it will be a great Public injury.

William to Inorg a dwelling in Springfield township Lucas county was burned on the night of the 6th, and tailor perished Iii the flames. Tailor was a wealthy Farmer. The fire is supposed to have been incendiary the Utility of the services she rendered. There Are hut few persons however who were Ever acquainted with the secret of her life. In Blac friars there lives an Artisan much respected by his neighbors whose voice is not without influence at election times but who is also notorious for his Republican not to say revolutionary views. Some years ago his children and wife were seized with Scarlet fever. Helpless and alone with All his family dangerously ill the father rushed wildly about for assistance and when the woman whose appearance has been but faintly described came Forward and offered her services As a sick nurse in at once accepted her help. She was known in the neighbourhood As an experienced nurse and had often been recommended to poor patients by the Parish doctor. The nurse subsequently confessed her real character. In a word she was a police detective. Nursing was but a pretext it was an excellent excuse for gaining admittance into suspected households and doubtless the police had their Eye on this Republican. The female detective in question was not As a Rule employed on political missions. Her chief duty was to discover criminals and those of the lowest and most dangerous Type. For this purpose her appearance was More an advantage than otherwise. Placing herself in relation with the Parish doctor she volunteered to nurse those families whose honesty was suspected by the authorities. As a nurse she disarmed All suspicion and did not fail to take careful note of All she heard. As a monthly nurse she Wel corned into the world the children of notorious criminals who were ultimately destined to become her prey while As a sick nurse she extracted from her half unconscious and debilitated fever patients the confession of some dark deed and hints As to the whereabouts of confederates in crime. Such was the general plan of action observed by this extraordinary woman but this was rather a slow process and at times it was necessary to fall at once on the wrong doer. On one occasion for instance the police received information that there was a gang of false Money makers in a certain Street but notwithstanding every Effort they were unable to ascertain in which Home the joiners worked. The services of the female detective were thereupon requisitioned and she was dispatched to the Street in question to see what could be done. After walking up and Down a Little while she noticed a child come out of one of the houses whose face indicated a kind disposition. Seizing hastily this Opportunity the detective feigned illness and begged to be taken indoors for a moment. Forgetful of her parents1 warning the child in her excitement seeing nothing but a woman apparently in great agony at once and without giving alarm admitted the detective into the House. The sudden Entrance thus obtained enabled the detective to hear the metallic sounds proceeding from the joiners a workshop before the latter were aware that any stranger was in the House. They were not Long in discovering their danger. Before the detective had time to leave the premises the chief of the gang rushed up from the cellar where he was at work and in his fury hurled a ladle Ful of molten Lead at her head. I fortunately the poke Bonnet that she wore saved her life the Burns she received were not fatal though they destroyed her hair and its roots. The police arrived in time on hearing the alarm to arrest eighteen joiners. The chief who was first aware of the Surprise was Able to escape but he was subsequently captured in France and there sentenced to eighteen years servitude in the galleys. It might have been imagined that if anything could make a woman abandon her particular calling it would be the loss of her hair but with the detective it Only increased her love of what she called sport. She considered that it would now be More easy for her to dress As a boy and in this her favorite Guise she penetrated Many a thieves Den. On one occasion however she was discovered. A Brawny thief asked her to speak that is to say too Ive the pass words and to use certain Slang expressions known Only to the particular gang whom she was spying. This she was unable to do. The thief then inquired whether anyone had seen her enter the House and on her answering in the negative coolly informed her that she would never be seen to go out train. This was the signal for execution. And after brandishing an Iron bar he struck a terrible blow at the detective s head. She had just time however to dash her hand through a window pane and Spring a rattle and the police stationed outside rushed to the Rescue. They found the detective lying insensible on the floor with her Skull fractured and it has been her boast that this adventure Cost Lier fourteen Small pieces of Bone extracted from the wound. Still undaunted and so Long As health lasted the detective continued on the scent encountering adventures on every step always in danger often indulging in hand to hand fights and selecting indiscriminately for her foes both men and women proving on either her skill in the a part of she con stantly received subsidies from Scotland Yard and was armed with the magic whistle rattle and number Given her by the authorities and which insured the assistance of every policeman Strander or not whose services she might find it necessary to Call for. Sickness at last subdued this turbulent spirit and the thieves on the Surrey Side need no longer fear the visits of the female de London european mail. P Yective. A female detective. A strange not to say sinister character has recently passed away it Ora among the dark Dens of crime which she haunted with unflinching persistence. This extraordinary woman was As Peculiar in her appearance As in the nature of her avocation. Short thick set w till the arms of a prize fighter and features which might perhaps be compared with those of a Bull dog but certainly bore no resemblance to the Ordinary countenance of a a gentlewoman a this creature could not fail to inspire a sense of repugnance to those even who were disposed to Admire her courage Aud acknowledge the Rome of to Day.
