The lake-freipht market settled back into its old-time depression yeeterday, a sharp advance in the prices of wheat and corn having shut oil all demand for prain-carriers. There was a model ate supply of tonnape on the market, and several enpapements were made early in the day. There waa scarcely any inquiry durinp tho afternoon. Kates were 6teady and nominally unchanped. The best rate on full cargoes to liuflalo was I? cents for wheat and 1 1 2 cents for corn. Shippers pay .i cent hipher on small lots. The line apents claim to obtain earpoes on a throuph rate to the seaboard that pay 2 14 cent to the vessel. The rate on corn to Kinpston was o!i centd, and on corn to Sarnia 1 vi cents. There are several empty grain vessels in port that will not accept a carpo until better rates can be obtained. The receipts of pritin yester-. day appjsf -pared l,u30.4'Vi oushels. If prain continue, to come in as liberally durinp the re-mninder of tho season there is likely to tio something of a boom iu lake freiphts. The en-Piiptments yesterday were as follows: To liufala.

Stirlinp of Fayette Coun- renubyivauitt, ou the chaise of procuriiiif How He Vnloailed Ills Union Pacific ut Just the Proper Moment lor His I Own Good. I Mew YotiK, Aug. 11. Gath: Jay Gould has been tho particular person soupht to be ruined j by tho bears. They had an idea that by de- j moralizinp confidence they would find Gould j so enormously extended in his holdinps that ho j would have to let po somewhere, and, like the Irishman at the too ot the welt with his hands around a windlass and his comrades clinging to his feet, so as to make a strinp down the well, if ho took oil" his hands anywhere to spit on them down went the whole line. l!ut Gould teems to be the prize speculator of the plobe. Sinpie-hauded, with this wholo continent mapped out under his eye, with a very small adjunct force, consisting1 of only one or two brokers and some accountants, he lose hero to win heavily yonder. While people are looking at his losses in one placo and shouting with joy thi't ho is down, lw has broken out in a new place and become the owner of another million. He has stability, too, as is evidenced in his Cnion Paci'.ic campaipu. He bepan to buy Union Pacific stock somewhere about bs71, when, throuph the failure of Oakes Ames and the general panic, this stock was down to 15 or "0. Ames' sons had a lot of tho Slock, and thouph they were poor they trusted their deceased lather so much iu his predictions abo it this road that they managed to keep it. Therefore, when Gould move d the stock up by Uio slow approach of better times, the Ames stock moved up. too. Other persons in JJoston took up Gould, as a respectable authority, notwithstanding what the New York papers hud to say. iso, in tho com so of time, I'nion Pacific was above par, and it turned out to be a pn at triumph in Gould's hands. The trouble with other people is that they ure always expectiiip Gould to be lookinp out for them, when he always is lookinp out for Gould. The purpose of his campaign was accomplished when he took this stock up to such a high figure. His natural move next was to realize on the stock ut hiph figures. Ingenious explanations are triven about the rascality of the man in accomplishing this, but 1 hear nobody say that he tailed lit it. They claimed that lie staved oil the Government from getting its just ones in tho road, but Gould was not the Government, and if Gould beat the Government be is entitled to a little praise as a man standing alone. Some of tho newspapers argue a speculator is a great criminal unless he pays judinneuts which are not exacted from him. 1 find everybody dodges ta.ves and judgments who can do so. In the end Gould got rid of his stock, while keeping up its dividends and etavmp off payments to Government, by bringing in extra bills for mail transportation, etc. This is done all tho time by everybody who can do it, bad as it is. Moautirue Gould was drawing- out of Cnion Pacifto. and he paid off some losses in sp'-culation with this stock. " Ah 1" said people looking on, "see how Gould is tightened now He has had to sacrifice the only valuable thing he had his Union Pacific." Not long before they were saving that this I. nion Pacific of Gould was not worth more than 20 cents on tho dollar. If they had stuck to too sitter proposition, instead of chanpuip it, they would have been ripht. for Gould knew tho inside of the road; that it had a great many judgments, etc., against it, and he delivered his stock into tho hands of tho pood men of liostou, who know everything, e-peeiatlv on morals. Tt seems that the chief dupe in i'toston was Charles Francis Adams not the man who played bunko. This junior Charles Francis had been filling up the reviews and railwav journals tor a long tune with what he did net know about railroads. Gou.d. at periods, pays great apparent respect to these gentry, and ireis thetu on his -ide. So laioa Pacific, on the advice of Charles Francis Adam.-, was pushed on lioston. Some of tins, with others, the Ames boys received, who had been holding their father's stock all alonp. and con id have sold it out at. any time for about par. They concluded that Mr. Gould was with them, that Mr. Adams was advising them, and thev held till that fatal moment when down went tho stock, and now it stands about 41. and there are sales iu it every day of about 50,000 shares. KI.A1XE AT BAH HARBOR. TSar. Hakboh, Me., Aup. 13. Special. Mr. Blame took a short run to Ranger this morning. He spoke at the soldiers' reunion there, returninsr ibis evening with M. P.

The prop IL Chisholra has been detained here by the serious illness of her Captain. The passenper v-rop Joseph L. Hurd leave for Lake Superior tomorrow night. A wrecking company has been formed at Owen Sound with a paid-up capital of ?b),ooo. The prop George L. Colwell, w liich was libeled Monday night, was bonded yesterday and sailed for Hay City. The schr T. L. Parker will take coal from Kuffalo to Lake Superior and return to Chicago with a carpo of iron-ore. Last year 374 vessels, aggregating 74.090 tons, were built in Canada. The estimated value of Ihe new tonnape is S3.333.050. The passenper prop Oneida, wrecked on tho St. Lawrence River last fall, has been rebuilt and will po into commission next week. The Captain of the prop Resolute was offered a carpo of prain, but. refused to load his boat at the rate ottered. He lelt lor Sarnia light. Tno tug Crawford left the harbor Monday nipht in search of a tow. and returned last evening light. The tug business is almost pros-tinted." Among the list of Canadian craft is a schooner which was built in 16'ti. Another was built in lii-tt and quite a number have been .afloat since ISto. The schr Queen, which was raised by Capt. Merryman, is at Iirockville. Her hull is in good condition. She will be repaired at Iirockville. F'lni?s were flying at half-mast all along tho river yesterday on account of the death of Capt. Arthur R.Atkins. The funeral will be held at ihe late residence of the deceased, No. HO Willard place, at 1 o'clock today. A fter the Anchor Line prop Gordon Campbell had finished loading her cargo she started down the river and became disabled by getting a lop in her wheel. She w as detained several hours while a diver was sent down to remove the obstruction. Capt. liogart of the prop Montengle severed his connection with that boat last evening and left lor Rufialo, where he will assume command of the prop Heotia. Capt. liogart waa master of the prop Roanoke last year. He is one of the most competent steamboat-men on the lakes. An adjourned mectingof the tug-owners was held yesterday. A number of scaled bids we re received for laying up tups, but none were opened. The project of reducing expenses by laying up some of the tugs does not seem to meet with unanimous approval, as several members of tho association were not present yesterday. No delinit action was taken. A committee was appointed for the purpose of ascertaining how many owners were w iliinp to pay their proportion of the expense. Tho meeting adjourned subject to a call of the committee. The steamship Fred Mercur of the Lehigh Valley Line met wiih a serious mishap yesterday near Twelfth street bridge. She had been loading grain at an elevator and was backing out of Kmpire slip, when she struck the dock and broke three buckets off from her wheel. It will cost about StitiO torepairthe damage. The Superintendent of the line was notified by telegraph of the accident, and the boat is waiting lor instructions. She will either wait here until a new wtieel can be sent from liuttalo or will be towed down by the Oceanica. The accident is a provoking one, as the boat was neatly loaded and would have got away last, nijriit. If she is detained here until a new wheel arrives she wiii not be ready to sail until Saturday. Capt. II. N. Throop, said to be the oldest sleauiboat-mnn in America, died at Pultney- ilie, X. V.. last week, 87 years old. Fifty years apo he L uilt the lake steamer Express at fuli-n.-yville. and later the widiy-known schooner ii.vcl, which figured conspicuously in the Canadian rebellion of 137. He was the builder of the first propeller wheel in 130. aud a year later invented propeller or screw wheels attached to sides of a boat. The wheels are still extant at Pultney ville, and are the oldest known. It is stated that Capt. Throop lent much aid to tho Canadian insurgents in tho rebellion of and that he escaped arrest and punishment by flight to Mexico, where ho secreted himself for several months. AROUND THE LAE.E3. THE NEWSBOY SOT DAMAGED. CHrr.OYCA.v, Mich., Aug. 13. Special. The schr Newsboy was released by the tug Leviathan last night and towed to Lake Huron. She was not damaged in the least. THE ALliERTA-OSBORS COLLIStON. Buffalo. X. Y'., Aug. 13. Special. Capts. Webb and Richardson, of the firm of II. J. Webb & Co. of Cleveland, part owners of tho J. M. Osborn, are in port. They are accompanied by II. D. Goulder, counsel for the Os-born's owners in the claim against the Alberta for damages caused by the recent collision. W. A. Moore of Detroit, counsel for the owners of the Alberta, is expected here tomorrow, when a private consultation will be held between the parties interested in that unfortunate disaster. 13. H. Williams will apneur in behalf of tho pool companies holding tho collision risk on the Alberta. It may be stilted that this risk is for $100,000, on a valuation $ 128,000. In case the Alberta shall linally be shown to have been to blame for the collision, the companies would have to pay $100,188 of the damages awarded, and the Alberta's owners would have Vi etand the rest of it. As near as can be learned, no testimony in connection with the disaster will be taken at this time. The statement that if the pooi companies should be obliued to nay their proportion of the damage done it would ruin some of them is ridiculous. It would assess them an average of about $500 each. OBITUARY. Frank Williams died unexpectedly early this forenoon, aged 57 years. He was bora in Connecticut and came here in 1837.

Tho well-known fact that a considerable portion of the men who took part in the Independent meetings, esjieciaby the one held in Boston, are opposed to the protective policy of the Republican party leaves the movement open to the grave suspicion that, under the cloak of a Pecksniftiau doubt as to the political and private morality of the Republican candidate, they are trying to accomplish what cannot be done in a fair and honest attack. Howard M. Holmes. CIVIL-SERVICE REFORM. Dependent Upon Republican Ascendency Mr. Blaine's Record Consistent witlt tlie Keform Bolter Inconsistencies) Reviewed. Lansing, Mich., Aug. 6. The following letter from one of the foremost advocates of civil-service reform in the West is published in the CieU-Serrice Record. It deserves the thoughtful reading of all sincere advocates of civil-service reform who are not so blinded by-personal or political passion that they are willing to sacrifice tha reform if only they can gratify their revenge: To the Editor of the Ciril Service Iieeord: As a constant reader of the CiTc'i Srrri'ee Record, and as an ardent believer iu the final reform of our civil service, I yet beg leave to present views opposed to those that you and others express in regard to Mr. Blaine, and the duty of Republican reformers in tho coming election. There can be no doubt that, under possible circumstances, "bolting" a party nomination is justifiable; but equally true is it that such a movement should not be resorted to lightly. Bolting " is revolutionary in its character, and, thouph it may rise parallel to the dignity ot our colonial contest for liberty, yet the danger is great of its sinking to tho level of a Mexican factional warfare. The Republican opposition to Mr. Uluine in the Eastern States not having submitted "facts to a candid world " to win for itself the former comparison, it certainly must be characterized by tho latter. Tho main reason the Independents give for their action is that Mr. Blaine is tho very personification of all that is bad in the spoils system; in fact, to use your o-vn expression, a " political robber baron." Now, if that charge could be substantiated by a long array of " facts " it would justify the action of the Independents. Thousands of earnest Republican believers in civil-service reform have looked in vain for such "facts"; and it is safe to prophesy that until such "tacts" are "submitted," along with tho sweeping denunciations, the mass of the honest voters will be little moved by this hostile action of a very small portion of the Eastern Independents. The truth in regard to Mr. Blaine's use of Government patronage during his Congressional career is that, while he was not faultless according to the strict but just, beliefs now entertained by civil-service reformers), be was not a common place-hunter for his political followers. Certainly, he did not debauch the public service as you would have your readers believe. I presume he had not the bravery, like Senator fldmonds, absolutely to reiuse to be concerned in tho matter of appointments, except in a constitutional way. We could admire him more if he had exhibited such bravery; but it is not reasonable to desert the Republican party now, because Mr. Blaine bent, as ninety-nine out of every hundred Republican Congressmen bent, to the fearful pressure of office-seekers. It is probably true that, when a vacancy occurred in any post-office in his district, Mr. Blaine recommended one of his political Iriends to the position. Undoubtedly Garfield did the same thing. All the Republican Congressmen were ohliged more or less to seek offices. Some did it willingly, others under protest, despising and denouncing tho system. What can be brought forward to prove that Mr. Biainc was worso than his fellow-Congressmen in this respect? 1 it known that the appointments made at his recommendation were peculiarly bad ones? Is it known that he ever by public- or private utterances upheld the spoils system? While knowing no facts that prove Mr. Blaine is the prince of spoils-hunters. 1 can mention several that tend to disprove that charge. In the first place, during a iarge part of his C011-pressionai career he was not particularly in favor with the appointing power at Washiug--r,. nn.l undoubtedly pielerred his claims as little as possible. Second. y. his personal popu larity in his State was so great tuai uo -ua raised above the ordinary vicissitude of a Con-pressman's political fortunes, and thus was not obliged to pander so much to the insatiable demand for ouice. One w ho is so prejudiced as to refuse to aekiiov.-.e.lpe this fact is not worthy of an argument on any question. So much for Mr. Biaine's action. As lor his opinions in r ard to ctvil-service reform. I have nothing more to guide me man a speech he once delivered, in which he ably discussed the Tenure-of-Oflice act, ascribing to it a very baneful influence on the civil service. There is nothing in the record cf Mr. Blame, nor i there anvthmg in the range of probaoili-ties that justifies the belief that it elected he would iniure the civil-service reform movement. The fair, candid truth is that tho results of the labors of the Civil-Service Commission have probably convinced him, as they have thousands of others who have watched the experiment, of the practicability of the measure H has nothing to gain by opposing the reform of tne civil service, for no one is so hadv as to say that tho spontaneous uprising ah over tho country of delegates in his favor was due to the abuse of Government patronage Even as a shrewd and adroit politician, if you wish to characterize him so, he would be led by the force of the reform sentiment in his party, as Mr. Arthur has been, to conform his acts of appointment to approved civil-servk.e principles. The incongruity of professing civil-service reformers helping to put the Democratic party in power is to apparent that they will appear BASE-BALL. Cleveland, 1; Detroit, O. Detroit, Mich., Aug. 13.

During a game of base-ball between the Baltimore Unions and the Athletic Club of Portsmouth, it was discovered that the Baitimores were playing with two balls a Jive one for themselves and a dead ball for their competitors. Intense excitement and confusion ensued. Four or live men and boys rushed to the diamond, aud the Baitimores would have been roughly handled but for tho police. DEFENDING CLEVELAND By Slandering Hamilton and JarkBon. New York, Aug.12. Editor .Sun. Much has been said in tho Independent papers, such as the Springfield Reiuhlicanl the Evening fosf, and some Democratic papers, in excuse for Mr. Cleveland, citing the conduct of Hamilton, and commending the bravery with which he met a like charge. They" mistake history. The charge against Hamilton was that ono Barrymore, who was a Treasury official when he was Secretary, was kept in office by Hamilton as a reward for tho favors of his wife. A mere charge against Hamilton that lie had a mistress would never have been answered by him, because, after the manner of that day, he would have felt that it did not touch his honor: but the accusation that be used tho Public Treasury to pay for his amours was ono that he would not abide. Therefore he published that famous pamphlet, extracts from which will be found inHildreth's History of the United States, in which, in short, he admitted that the husband was an officer under him, but declared that that was only because he was a good officer, and that his appointment had nothing to do with Hamilton's relations with his wife, for which, he asserted, he paid in good hard cash, and produced the original receipts of Mrs. Barrymore for those payments, so ill-composed and badly spclled that they bore evidence ot their genuineness on their face. All America commended tho bravery of Hamilton's defense, as all England applauded the Prince of Wales when he testified as co-respondent in Lady Mornaunt's divorce case that his relations with her were merely Platonic. But Mr. Cleveland has not made this brave defense, but perhaps he will in his letter of acceptance. It is to be noted, however, that Mr. Hamilton never offered himself for the suffrages of the people after that defense. Xor is Gen. Jackson's case a parallel; and I am ashamed of Democratic editors defaming Jackson in order to make a defense for Gov. Cleveland. Capt. and Mrs. Kobords had quarreled and separated, living in Kentucky. Kobords went to Virginia, and through one of his relatives, who was a member of the Virginia Lepisiature, he got an act passed divorcing him from Mrs. Kobords. After that divorce Gen. Jackson, not knowing that there was anything wrong about it, married Mrs. Kobords. and she made him a good wife and a happy home. Afterward the Supreme Court of Viipin. in another case decided that acts of divorce like Capt. Kobords' were void, because, among other things, the party charped was not, and never had been, a citizen of Virginia, and Virginia could make no law affecting her. Therefore she was still Mr. Kobords' wife in law. Jackson was ex-ceedinjrly distressed at tho condition of things, of which he himself and his wile were innocent victims. He then applied for her to the Kentucky Lepisiature, where the parties resided, for a divorce, which divorce was granted by the Legislature, which had jurisdiction. This would not have been done if the Lepisiature had believed Mrs. Kobords guilty of any wrong with (j en. Jackson. Such conduct would have been a full answer to her application. A divorce being granted. Jackson remarried her, and w-as her loving and ttuibful husband until her death, which he mourned through the rest of his iifo.
