Some of the Democrats of this Congressional district talk of contesting the seat of Hon. A. C. Hopkins because he was only elected by a majority of 51 over lion. M. F. Elliott, the Democratic candidate. We doubt very much if Mr. Elliott has mu'bor I zed this talk or bas consented to make a contest, bat if he has let bim go ahead and prose his right to a wet to whish A. C. Hopkins was honestly aud dearly elected to fill. A Democratic House might be willing to unseat Air. Hopkins, but Mr. Elliott would gain very little by it nor occupy the seat very long. Should Mr. Hopkins be cheated out of his seat be would be renominated and re. elected by snob an emphatic majority as to silecoe his jealous enemies.
The Philadelphia Press of to day ba* the following to say in regard to the matter: “It is stated that Mortimer F. Elliott, the defeated Democratic candidate for

A SURVIVOR OF THE SERPENT.
New York, Nov. IG.—Albeit ll. South, junior paituer iu tho brokerage firm of Mills. Kobesou £ Smith, No. 9G Broadway, is a prisoner at pc I ice headquarters, oharged with over seventy forgeries, aggregating *350,000. Smith has acknowledged Ui6 guilt, aud has turned over all his property for /.lie benefit of his creditors.
The discovery of the forgeries, which cover a period of 6ix > ears, was accidentally made on Saturday morning by a stock
Congress in the Sixteenth district, intends clerk in thc employ of Mills, Robeson &
Smith. In his confession Smith says be
to contest the election. His successful competitor, Albert C. Hopkins, had bu? fifty-one majority, but that ought to be sufficient to tenure him the seat unless there bas been fraud. We do not understand that fraud is alleged, b-t that if a contest is made it will be on the ground of certain loose practices at several polls in Tioga Comity and one poll in Potter. These things were clearly not done—if done at all—with any purpose to aid Mr. Hopkins, but, as these districts gave him a majority, i* their votes should be thrown out on tome technicality a Democratic House might be pursuaded lo deprive him of hia seat. At present Mr. Elliott is so ill that be is not giving tbi* matter his attention, and the talk of contest bas been started by partisans who assume to be his friends. Upon bis recovery Mr. Elliott is very likely to put a stop to the whole business: be is not a man who would desire to defeat the popular choice by means of a technicality.”

Alihough the case is not yet completef Inspector Byrnes, aware cf the excited condition of the money market, and fear irg that tho matter might be used by Wall street sharps, determined to make public the real facts of the case. Smith** method was something akiu to that of Bedel!, the clerk of the firm of Shipman, Choate A Larcque, who wa* sent to prison for a long term recently.
Tho Io*8, resulting from Smith’s misdoing, will fall upon the firm of Mills, Robeson A South, which I.ai been in existence since I*:72, aud which ha* been bt Id in tho highest repute.
TO SAVE HIMSELF.
About six years ago Smith became embarrassed, and to save himself adopted the scheme which has led *«> his downfall. lie would buy seven, eight or nice share* of first class stock, and by adding a cipher ■ir tho KUC! Y raise - ho order to seventy, eighty or ninety shares. These he would deposit wilh the firm as a private account, and thus made his partners responsible. The sh urea were in course of time hypothecated with thc Union Trust Company, a jited States Trust Company, Chemical Bank, Pbu-ntx Bauk, Mechanic* Bank. Fourth National Bank. Nassau Bank, of Brooklyn, and Russell Sago, until the amounts secured reached b-qween i 29, OOO and $30,040 in each case.
HOW IT WAR DISCOVERED.
Smith's forgeries might have oontinui d indefinitely if stock clerk W. A. Wat mn t bad not discovered that the figures iu a certificate turned in by Smith ou Saturday bad been raised. An investigation followed aud 6huwod that Smith had purchased but seven shares iu*l«?adof seventy a* announced on the face if tile certificate. This led loan overhauling of De books of the firm, aud then all came to light. At a subsequent c -ufcrencr with his associate* Smith made a full confession and then went to his home, No. 2<v4 Columbia direct, Brooklyn, where be wa* arrested.

Coukumma, Nov. IG.—The British gun boat Lapwing, brought -he Serpent’* survivors to Cormous to-day. An Aasocfatec Press correspondent boarded the Lapwing on her arrival and had an interview with one of the survivors named Barton, who said that the Serpent struck the covered rock about 10.30 o’clock Monday night, the weather at the time boing dirty but uot foggy. Ail hands wore below except the officers and six watchmen.
Immediately after the shock all who were below rushed to the deck. The crew obeyed thc orders of the officers and there was no panic. A large boat was soon lowered, but it was smashed to pieces and the occupants perished.
It then became evident that it would be useless to lower another boat. Another attempt to throw a cable ashore also failed. Meanwhile the men were being washed ashore.
Burton saw one wave wash twelve men into the sea. About an hour after the Serpent struck the captain gave tho men leave to save themselves as they thought best.
Burtou jumped overboard, haviug a life bdl around his waist, a* had ail the men •rn watch. Nobody followed him. After swimming for two or three hours, battling with the immense waves all the time, he reached oalm water and lauded in an exhausted condition, although his ouly injury was a slight abrasiou of tho leg. The night was pitch dark.
