The police Board investigations now going on lend Ono to the conclusion that Rasca Lity is rampant and that there in t an honest official in the place. That something is radically wrong somewhere there can be no doubt every year brings its exposures and the City departments Are in constant hot water. There is a very serious Side to this for it would appear that the respectable citizens have no Chance in elections. Unixes to Centennial exposition revive a feeling of patriotism and love for the country it will be an immense fizzle. With the millions of dollars to to expended Tho elegant buildings to to constructed and the monuments of the vont to to erected throughout Tho land the Celebration will virtually to simply a Hugo circus if it fail to strengthen the regard for the principles upon which on government was founded originally and from which it has swerved considerably in Ono Hundred years. The present dullness of Trade not Only in America but in Europe has caused an in Denbo accumulation not merely of currency but of Gold in the vaults of the Banks at to great moneyed centres. Tho following table will show whore these accumulations have been Tho largest both this year and year before last a nov 1875. July 1873. Bank of England. .6145.000,000 �110,000,000 bunk of Franco. 313,000,000 153,000,000 Bank of Prussia. 150,000,090 175,000,000 Bank of Austria. 69.000,000 71,000,000 Bank or Belgium. 24,000,000 23,000,000 Bank of Hamburg. 4,000,000 0,000,000 total.�$705.000,000 $545,000,000 the old North dutch Church on Fulton Street n. Y., has been completely razed and on its bite will to put up ten stores five stories High estimated Cost 8250,000. Thus do the old landmarks go Down. This enterprising generation has no undue reverence for hoary age. It knocks and cafes around Ante Deluvia ideas and opinions with Tho same recklessness that it does the ancient buildings which serve to Mark Tho past history of their fathers. This is emphatically an ago of destruction in every respect. It is to be hoped that everything destroyed will be replaced with something better As in the present instance. The Large amount of space devoted by the newspapers to reports of out door sports show that the popular taste in that direction 1b fast increasing. A. Few years ago a few boating matches comprised the list of exercising amuse ments in the country now every town  and Village has its base Boll club boating club etc., and the result is that the Young men Are Devol Oping stronger frames enabled to stand the hard work of life. And All of this produces its marked effect. Constant exercise particularly when not Token with a View to Mere exercise not Only strengthens the individuals practising it but from the attractiveness of the forms into which it is now put induces others to participate. The race will undoubtedly be in course of time much bettered by the out door sports which Are now filling the papers with reports which Are eagerly retorts of the peach prospects from Pennsylvania Ohio and new York Point to a very Small crop in those states but " the Peninsula Maryland and Delaware will raise More of the fruit than it knows what to do with. Arrangements Are being perfected with the new York and Pennsylvania companies by which the enormous crop can be expeditiously distributed Over the Middle and Eastern states. There has been some talk of erecting store houses in which by a system of ventilation the temperature being kept equally Cool peaches could be stored and preserved to prevent the Market from being Over glutted. Particularly in Maryland one other course is to be taken to prevent the Prol Flo yield of the Peninsula from frustrating its own ends Viz a Good profit on the labor and Money expended on cultivation. A luxury much esteemed in the South is peach Brandy and several establishments for its manufacture Are being started. Again Many More thousand pounds of the fruit than usual will be dried so it is hoped that when the crop is put upon the Market it con be disposed of with sufficient rapidity to prevent any great portion of it spoiling or yielding a poor return flashes of news.

Tempted but not ensnared. Tho Washington Star publishes the following interesting statement of an attempt to Seduco supervisor Hunt of Tho now Orleans District late last Winter a rectifier of whisky in Cincinnati discovered that whisky was being sold in new Orleans at lower rates than in the forme City. To could in Nowise reconcile this with the fact that the freight which the distillers in the latter City had to pay for Corn shipped from Ohio Indiana and Illinois must prevent honest dealers from underselling the Cincinnati Market. Accordingly he came on to Washington and presented the facts to Secretary Bristow who decided to make an investigation. Tho first step taken was to summon from South Carolina to Washington supervisor Hunt. This officer was personally known to or. Bristow and enjoyed his fullest Confidence. The statements set Forth by the Cincinnati dealer were related to the supervisor and he received written instructions As to the course to be pursued in his investigation. From this City he started for new Orleans. Now it is evident that some one in the Treasury department telegraphed to the whisky men the Mission of Hunt and a very minute personal description. Hunt left direct for new Orleans. While standing on the platform at Holly Springs miss., he was approached by a stranger who extended his hand and said or. Hunt i am glad to meet the supervisor was somewhat embarrassed but having a suspicion that All was not right and with the possible Hope that the presuming stranger might Aid him in Tho object of the trip he asked to know him. They both passed into the car and after being comfortably seated Tho stranger without any ado told or. Hunt his business and minutely told him the substance of his instructions As Given him by Secretary Bristow. Then with the Assurance that he could trap the supervisor to told him the trip he was undergoing was unnecessary that if he would make a report favourable to Tho new Orleans people the speaker was authorized to enter into a written Promise to pay him $12,000 por month. Said he we paid this to the former supervisor and we Don t consider it too Liberal by any Means. After this offer was made it was or. Hunt s time to in. He indignantly refused to a kept the bribe and proceeded on his Way the Brunger however stuck to him like a Leech. He took his rooms at the same hotel occupied by Hunt and import Ned him at every convenient Opportunity to accept his offer. Even after Hunt left new Orleans to followed him homeward to Louisville Lexington and thence to Cincinnati. Hunt reported the facts to or. Bristow at the time he did so the Secretary was in the midst of the examination into the whisky fraud transactions. His first move was to secure an outsider one Independent altogether of the Treasury to whom All information should to sent and through him Given to the Secretary. The Man chosen was Gen. Boynton and faithfully did he perform Bis a horrible Fate. In a balloon prof. Donaldson and a newspaper Man ascend irom Chicago and Are lost in the Lake. On the afternoon of Tho 15th, prof. Donaldson the Well known aeronaut made an ascension from Chicago with Barnum s Mammoth balloon. A reporter for Tho evening journal named Grimwood accompanied the professor and both Are probably at the Bottom of Lake Michigan. No news has been received from the balloon or its occupants except that brought by the Skippers of two or three Lake vessels. Ono of these saw Tho balloon soon after it started Nitro than thirty Miles Outin the Lake from Grosse Point. At that time Tho Basket was bounding Over the Crest of the Wes but the Airship soon arose and disappeared toward the Northwest. Between 11 and 12 that night a terrible storm occurred on the Lake such a one As no balloon could possibly weather and if the travellers were caught in it of which there is no doubt they Are certainly lost. Donaldson was travelling with bar num s circus and making daily ascension and it is said his balloon was made of inferior stuff and was a unsafe affair under Tho most favourable circumstances. Grimwood Tho reporter was n Young Man of considerable Promise having but recently connected himself with the journal office. Aifiti the pastors of the protestant churches at Monroe mich., have signed a card protesting against the action of the mayor of that City in welcoming to the City in his official capacity a party of sunday excursion its who disgraced themselves and the pity by their subsequent conduct. Filkins Fate. The Albany n. Yargus has the following in reference to Filkins the express robber who escaped from Dan no Mora prison a year ago he escaped from the confines of Tho prison in open Daylight and although in a few moments the officers of that institution were aware of his disappearance no Trace of him could to found. Subsequently false reports were started of his having been seen in various parts of the state and Tho officers of Tho prison now claim that after his disappearance from the prison he was seen by no Ono. Two week ago while men were engaged in cleaning the main sewer under Tho prison they Emo upon the Skeleton of a Lisman body lying at the Bottom of Tho sewer. It was removed from its position and an examination made of it when it was revealed that beyond a doubt it was to remains of Filkins the express robber who had died Thero after escaping from Tho corridors of the prison Down through one of the water closets in a vain Hope of gaining his Liberty by passing through the sewer and out at its Mouth which is strongly closed with bars of heavy Iron secured in either Side by Walls of heavy masonry. Tho officers consider this version of Tho Maimer in which he probably met his death As the most reasonable for they Are aware that though two men a Short time ago endeavoured to effect an escape in this Way no one but Filkins had disappeared since a previous cleaning of the sower and no one could possibly have reached the location occupied by Tho Skeleton other than through the water closets. It is then reasonable to presume that the Skeleton found is that of the notorious Filkins who either met death in reaching the Bottom of the prison sewer by falling or died there after discovering escape was impossible without being Able to make known his situation to any who could Como to his Relief arrested for wrecking a vessel. The secret service at Washington has received information that one of the operatives had arrested at son fran disco James m. Ludell Captain and Ellis h. Dean mate of the bark Union which was purposely wrecked As alleged in May last for the purpose of defrauding the insurance companies. One of Tho Crew made affidavit to the effect that he overheard the two officers conversing about bumping Hor and that shortly afterwards Sho struck in puget sound but floated off. Subsequently he heard Tho mate say Well to will tax her this time and that same Day the vessel came in Contact with a Rock and Sank. The Crew made their escape in boats and landed at Victoria b. O. When Tho mate was apprehended he acknowledged his guilt and said the Captain urged him and said he wa3 a ruined Man unless Hoot the insurance. Neither of the officers As far As is known owned an interest but their crime if established is punishable with death the deliberate wrecking of a vessel being on a Par with arson. Such a fiendish act is of rare occurrence this being the Only Case which has come to Tho knowledge of the United states authorities for a Long time. a the ceneennia1. Tho Centennial committees of the several government departments have decided to Root a building on the Centennial grounds for the common use of Tho departments the ground for the foundation will be broken immediately. Tho department committees have delayed action until now in the expectation that Tho general commission would either give the departments sufficient space or furnish Tneia a separate building. The commission has derided not to do this. Congress appropriated 8500,000 for the use of the departments of which not to exceed 5150,000 could be expended upon a building. The Cost of Tho proposed building will be 875,000. It will be in the form of a greek Oross in the Center of which will be a Lighthouse illustrating our Lighthouse system. The departments Are much embarrassed by the unequal distribution of the sum allowed by Congress. Two of the leading departments have each Only $5,000, while some of the subordinate branches of the service have been Given $100,000
