Skcristakt Winuom denies that the Treasury outlook ib as blue as has been reported. He assorts there will be no actual deficiency, bnt that there will bo a handsome sum in his hands after all the legal claims on the treasury have been fully satisfied. Ik a short time the oountry will have added to its other kiuds of money the Treasury Ballion Note under the silver law. The other kinds, with wbloh nearly everyone is familiar, are gold coin, Bilver coiu, gold certificates, silver certificates, greenbacks and national bank bills. The premium earned by the cruiser Philadelphia on her trial trip over the measurod course off Long Island, on the 25th nit., for her contractors, amounted to $102,400. The premium on the Baltimore was slightly in excess of this, aggregating $100,442. The government, it is said, is perfectly satisfied, and certainly the Cramps should be. It is to be hoped that the investigation by the Government Inspectors into the Lake Tepin disaster may result in deter, mining conclusively whether the ill-fated steamer Sea Wing was overloaded or in an unseaworthy condition, or whether she was improperly managed. If the resnnn-1 sibility ior the loss o' so many lives restB I on either her owners or her captain, they should be held to a strict aocount. On Wednesday last oie hundred and twenty members of the House of Representatives were announced as paired on a vote which was taken. That means that fully half that number were absent.

Mr. Sherman has been in publio life continuously for a period of forty years, and is, iu addition to being one of tho ablest men in public service, one of the mOBt thoroughly eqnipped and useful men in Congress. His retirement would leave a vacancy which very few men could properly fill, and take from Congress one of the most fritoUiReut, industrious and consientiuus workers ever connected with that body.

Board of Trade Meeting. A regular meeting of the Board of Tiado will be held ibiscvoniigat So'olook. There aro special reasons why every member * should be in attendance. Under the heading "An Appeal to the Nation for Tardy Justice," tbe New York Commercial Advertiser prints an editorial strongly eulogistic of the late Geueral John C. Frerooot, in which it declares that his widow and daughter are wretchedly poor, aim oat penniless. It says: "His widow, the daughter of Senator Benton, of Missouri, has scarcely any means, and ber two sons, who are married and have children, are portionless lieutenants ip the navy and army. She has for some years earned something by her pen- how much those familiar with tbe wages of Uturature need not be told. She is in delicate health, and all her strength will be needed to complete the seoond volume of her husband's memoirs, which promises to be of extraordinary interest, and to finish which she will regard as a sacred duty to him. She has been, in her way, as patriotic as be. Sbe baa been since 16, when she became his wife, his devoted helpmate, and the encourager of bis every ehterprise. She deserves, in a measure with him, excellently of the republic. Will the republic allow ber to be in need? Will it not furnish her with enough to live respectably for ber few remaining year6? Shall it be said that the country, which is squandering millions on pensions to soldiers of doubtful record and uncertain desert, refuse a much merited pension to the widow of one of its heroes, to whom it owes more than can be recounted? Surely he received small returns in life for all he had done. It is not yet too late to recognize his claims by common justice to bis widow."  The rest of the editorial, which is near- ' ly two columns in length is devoted to a' review of General Fremont's romantio ] career, and some of the passages are as follows: ' :He was iu London, dining in company ! with several of his compatriots, gathered j there to conclude the final terms of the o~* '�-t-------� --X-.--^.t^.. J fore, when the firing of Fort Sumter was announced. Tbe news suspended the business in hand at once. "Fremont, without a moment's delay, rote to President Lincoln, offering his servioes as colonel to tbe oavalry. He was appointed major general, and when his appointment was wired to him he was at dinner with a nobleman In the north of England. He excused himself to the host went to London that evening and the next day crossed over to Paris, where he purchased in his own name a lot of arms for the Government, which the Government, by the way, declined to take, though it afterward paid a much higher price for tbe same kind of weapons. He lost no time in returning home and speedily assumed command of his department in St. Louis. In August of the same year he issued his famous order emancipating tbe slaveB of the masters in his district who had taken up arms against the United States. The President dlseaproved of the order as unauthorized and premature, and asked the General to recall It, which be refused;, whereupon it was officially annulled, and be was relieved of bis command a few weeks later. Fremont thus sounded the keynote of the war and anticipated the emancipation proclamation by nearly thirteen months. Fremont had various causes of grievance against tbe Government. But when did be complain? Did he ever write letters to the uewspapers or seek to be interviewed? He was nobly proud; he endured in silenoe. Republloa have been called ungrateful since tbe days of ancient Athens. Ours has often proven so. But we do not believe it will prove so in the present instance. The people will see if we mis take not, that it discharges part of its duty to the memory of its gallant Pathfiuder. He is one of the most romantic and pic-toral figures iu our history. He is one of the striking oharacers that seem destined to live. The next century, wo predict, will value and honor him more than he is valued to day. He appears to be embalmed fur the future.

WAsniNOTOS, July 20.-Tbe debate on the tariff bill is expected to begin in the Senate to-morrow. Tbe understanding is that in tbe morning hour tbe Indian appropriation bill shall be taken up and considered until 2 o'clock, aud then give way to the tariff bill, the consideration uf the former to be resumed on tbe succeeding days in the morning hour, if necessary. Senator Voorhees has stated his intention to deliver a general speech on the tariff Monday. Tbe Republicans do not intend under the present arrangement to engage in a general debate on the bill. Therefore a Democratic Senator will make the opening speeuh. Tbe Republican members of the Finance Committee have been informed that the Democratic minority will not make a formal report against the passage of the bill. No effort will be made this week to secure consideration of the River and Harbor bill, but if the debate on Tariff bill proves to be protracted its managers will consent to set aside the bill informally to permit tbe River and Harbor bill to come before the Senate. Nothing definite has been decided respecting the Republican cauens upon the Election bill, which is being prepared by the majority of tbe Committee on Privileges and elections. It is said as soon as it is ready for inspection and discussion a caucus will be called to determine what shall be done with it. In the House this week the program of business has been partially outlined by a special order. To-morrow votes are to be taken on tbe amendments to the Original der, and will occupy tbe time Tip to Thursday. There is a disposition to debate at length the conference report on the Dis-triot of Columbia appropriation, and if It is taken up for consideration Thursday os Friday it will probably occupy the remain* der of the week, otherwise tbe Election Committee may be expected to fill in tbe time with tbe pending Virginia and South Carolina contested election oases.

PKOGBaM FOE THE WEEK'S WORK Coal Operators Strike a> BonaDXa. Schahtos, P*., July 20.-A.bout two months ago William Moore, of West Market street, sold 100 aores of land situated in Dioksou borough, just aoron the oity line, to Messrs. Banner, Watkins and Williams, aoal operators. Theprioe was $25-000. Boon after the land had been deeded over the new owners ereeted a MoEthen mine drill upon the place, and in a few days the huge auger was penetrating the bowels of the earth. This set Moore to thinking, and two weeks ago be sought tbe coal operators and offered them $30,000 to sell back. 'We would not sell for ten times that sum," replied |tho arteeians, and the old man turned away murmuring words of regret at having sold the farm. On last Wednesday* morning the drill broke through a vein of aoal 10 feet thick at tbe depth of 150 feet. The ooal is of tbe finest quality, and there are "millions in it" for the new owners. The value of tbia land now is estimated at over $1,000,000. This opens up a new coal sub-field, and in a locality where the presenee of eoal was not even suspected. Their Waffcs Advanced.

A Battle Id Which Guatemalans Were Defeated, Citt ov Mexico, July 20.-El Universal publishes an aocount of a battle between Guatemalans and San Balvadorians in San Salvador, in which tbe former were defeated with heavy loss. The Guatemalan forces numbered 0000. General Barrun-dia, the Guatemalan refugee, has left Oaxaaa to take part in the war. Be will probably raise the standard of revolt in Guatemala.

Tbe children were unnerved by the tradgedy, and two of them were thrown into convulsions. All three were'taken home by railroad employes. Farquar was employed in tbe dry goods house of Sweetzer, Pembroke & Co., Broadway New York. He leaves a widow and foar children. � TJnlqae Cream Extractors. In a very short time batter-making by machinery has been brought to a degree of perfection no; dreamed of a few years ago. Recently a test was made on a dairy -farm in Erie county and in exactly one hour and fifteen minutes oows were milked, tbe cream was extracted and churned and over one hundred pounds of batter made. Tbe process by which the oream is extraoted from fresh milk is simple, but much better than the old way of allowing it to eome to the top of conveyed to a revolving ean whiob looks very muoh like a water cooler. This extractor has about 6,000 revolutions a minute. The oream, being light, goes to the top of the can and when it reaches a certain height flows oat. The milk, being heavy, stays at tbe bottom and goes out through another spigot. Tbe contrivance is worked by horse power. A large number of these extractors are in use in Chautaqua county, N. Y., where there are many large dairies. Such results are calculated to make farmers' wives rob tbeir eyes and wonder what we will do next.__ A Prlxe For the Most Popular Teacher.
