Complications Between England, France and China, History of the Troublesome leptiations Over the Annam ^nestioos. France Placed in an Extremely Hu- miliatingf Position. I.ONDOX. September 8. Although the Frcneli ministry have consoiitt*d to literally back aowii iioiu their pretensions la Tonquin. the Clilneso illlUculty Is yet quite far iroin belug finally settled. Tfie thiueso ix-ople are now thoroughly iirousea anU the Fieneh jingoes are pugnacious. The present position of France Is huuilIiatinK in the extreme, and Intensely exuspeniting to the war party. J'lie imiulnence of war between France and China was considered so certain a weeli ago that tiie .Marquis Tseng, last Monday, engaged quarters for liitnsell, family and suite at Folkestone for the full and winter. ^ The marquis, tK>ing amt>assador to Kussia, KnKland and France, the manner of his otlicial departure irom tiie French capital, as related by himself, was of itself omuious, havlnu been caused, according to his own allegation, by the insolence of the French minister lor ioreii!!! aliairs. AI. Challamcl Lacour. Tseng had gone to Paris to treat wit!» Lucour upon the TouqiUa «lueation at the earnest solicitation of Lord Giauvllle. Tlie interview at this period was arranged by Lord Lyons, British ambassador at I'aris, and the time was erlticai. The French had beeu repulsed at Hanoi, Captain Kevlerre had been killed, .M. Bouree, the French envoy, had been recalled from China because he hail as;rccd upon a compromise, and j\L Tricon, jingo, had been sent in his place. Admiral Meyer had been transferred irom I'unis to command liie Frt'ucli lleet In Chi- iiesf wau and lin^ Frencii cabinet had teie- graplu d to the army In Tongum tluil tlie republic “wou.d avenge her glorious children” who had ia.len at Hanoi. The cTnnese ambassador amiably Imt liiuily slated that Annam was a vassal of t'hiiia. \hiieii could lecoirniz« «o Frencli oiter.itlons made in tlial country not made at llie reijUcHt ol tiie iviUK of Annam, that China was the .'•■■uzer. Jii oi ToiKjUiii and had the rlglit of supervision over the port dues; that Chiua regardea tiie French attempt at oecnjiaiion as a vioiation of Ciimese rights, whicii would 1^* resisted, and Cliina ■wdulu agree to settle tiie diillculty, provlued the French would cease opcratioiis and recognize ('bina's claims of vassalago and suzerainty, Lacour heard the statement, but made no reply, T«*?ng Wnlteil Several Ditjra and several times asked for a statement In answer to his. Jiccelving no reply, he quit I’arls, sending Ills London address to tiio French minister. At this point the French Kovcrnment made the serious mistake of going over Tseng’s iiead and attempling to secure, tiirough AL Tricon, some recognition of tiie Fiench occupation from Le Hung {’hang, the Chinese eoinmander- In-chief, and the governor of the Ciiinese southern provinces. The servants oi Chiua are all loyal, and evei^ one of them can always bo depended upon to coniine hiniselt strictly to the task assigned him. M.Tricon faileu wltii Ix* Mui.g Chang who, having met tlie Frenchman at the latter’s re- miest at Shanghai, departed souihwaid. The French tnen resorted to demonstrations. The fleet paraded tiie coast, more troops were sent to Ann.am, anu either at liis own Instance or under the provocations of the Black Flags, the Frenen commander look ILaidoung and line, the Aunamese capital, and compelled the new king to sign a convention recognizing the French occupation. The Ciiineso acccjitt-'U Uie military advances as overt acts of war, and without declanv- tlons proceeded In their own way. An army of 30,000 men was massed on the Tonquin frontier, and a const.iut movement of troops was omanized between Shanghai and this frontier. \Vheu tills movement was well under way, BO that the army supports were perfect, 15,000 troops wese moved out across the S^mg Kol and Eio river volley to Haideung. All this stirred China clear through, and so Jeopardized tiie position of foreigners as to cause appeals for Intervention to be sent to every government m Europe, This was the position on Alonday, when the Marquis Tseng engaged his winti^r quarters at Folkestone. Jt was a state of war and It v.akeu up Fngland. England’s Interests require peace in China. France cannot attord Just now to run counter to British interests. Ihe French people grew ahirmed. They clamored for peace. The French press grew conservative. Frline Minister Ferry became frightened. (>n Tuesday he con- ierred with Lord Lyons. Lord J.yons uotifled Earl Granville that France would accept English media- iion. Earl Uranville found the Marquis Tseng cold and app;irently inditterent. He Ijluiitly told the English secretary that China was Indisposed to resume w'hal he characterized as “iiarleylng” witii tne French until La<-our apoiogizeu for his previous iusoleuce. When this inteiligeuce was sent to M. Ferry he was absolutely terntled. lie Ntra!(tlit\vuy Went to M. Iiacour, who made him the subject of a scene and save him au immediate appellte for humble pie. lilghl after this Interview, v. hich occurred last Wednesday nlgiit, M. Ferry tlrtive to the ofilcial resivienee of L uki l.yims. Before midnight the British iorelgn seeietary was amliorlzed to assure Tseng that Lacour was •• prepared to eat leek.” ^est day ihe (.’iiinese ambassador went to I’aris. Tliu French minister tins time ;ironipliy waited upon him, assured him that :-'rance il 4 .'slred a peaceful settleinent, and asked lor the Chinese terms. They were prom|»ly fur- jiished. Tliey were Jnst the same as befure, but somewhat stronger, lleeognitiou of Aiinam’s vassalage aud of Chinese suzerainly, the Ciiinese to open the Song Koi or lied river as far as Sai Koi, on the iiorder of Tonquin, and \unnan, the Frencli to be aiioweti to maintain an army of 4000 men in Toiiquui, for the purpose of piotecting Ihe country from liie incursions of the Blaek Flag rebels, aud to maiuiaia a sullleleiit fleet to protiiet tiie delta »)f llie lied river from pirates. M. Lacour agreiHi to the terms. If the French government accedes to tliem, Clilna will bo the only gainer by tlio Tonquin dispute, as she will secure an elliclent police to protect a tributary stale from the most dangerous pirates and marauders In the world. Until the French government shall conclude a ^Kjace satisfactory to China, Ihe latter will continue her prtisent military activity. Karl Granville admits that it was the task of his life to move the Marquis Tseng in tiie present eniergeuey. it required the most urgent solicitation to induce the ambassador to consent to resume negotiations with Lacour, and Uranville was compelled to point out thiit If China’s at! itude remained unchangeti it would so involve British interests as to embroil England, and force her, in the event of war, to insist that France should retrocede, instancing Kuldja. The war fever in China Is growing and is now wellnlgh hisuppressiole. Today large bodies of Chinese troops were constantly arriving at Canton and being passed southward. Munitions of war are beiug constantly gathered at Canton and Shanghai. The Chinese government is engaged now in making requisition upoii the banks for loans aud upon mei cnaiits fur stores. Because of the reported alarm of British residents In China and their clamor for better protection In the event of war, tiie English government has seut orders to Chatham for fresh crews of marines to be sent ;out at once to re-enforce the British ODinese squadron. Tbe Baron vna Kendelt’a Betrothal. The announcement Is made of the betrothal of BaroD von Keiidell to the Baroness Grennhof, The Baron’s wife has been dead but a year, aud the peculiar circumstances leading up to his present engagement cause couslderable discussion among his frientis, many of whom openly pronounce the match a mesalliance. The Baroness Grennhof is the daughter of Duke Ernest of ■\Vurtenburg. The duke many years ago contracted a Morganatic marriage with a Mile. Era- Blm, a contratrlce, and the result was the baroness, who, luhe'-iting her mother’s love ior music, though not her executive powers, was a constant attendant at all notable musical entertainments. The baron is also a musical amateur, and the courtship, which was flnidly ilpened Into a betrothal, commenced In Kouen some mouths ago ilurlug a series of concerts which both attended, aud where mutual tastes were quickly followed by mutual aaiuira- tlon. The baron is 57 and his fiancee 20 years of a^e. The promised memiors of the Duke oi Saxe- CoDurg Gotha will not be published. They promised so much scandal concerning the families of many of tlie royal personages of Europe that no stone was left uniurned In order to prevent their seeing the light. X.o«klus for Several Xriahinen. The Castle anthorltles now admit that they have given up all hope of finding Tynan, Sheridan and Walsh, believing that the Fenian organization, having these refugees under their protection, are able to baffle the detectives. The authoritlss. however, declare a determlnat Ion to mahitalu constant watch at tiie different ijoiuts in order to secui-e the arrest of either of the Irishmen who may attempt to iiiake a flying visit to LieloudontUe assuutptiou that the fiuvernment ? has entirely abuiuloned the chase. The detectives pretend to believe that In this way tliey will some day be able also to arrest upon British territory Mr. Bvrue and even Mr. Egan, the ex-treasurer oi the Irish Laud League. Jffarjr Anileraoa m* '‘Galatea.** The World Stated this week that Mr. Gilbert had forbidden Miss Mary Anderson to appear In tlie character of Galatea In his pl.ay of ‘•Pygmalion and Galatea." It Is doubtftU, liowever. If .Mr. Cill- bert wUl insist on so harsh a lue.isure as this. Miss Anderson’s popularity Is iuereasing with every perlormanee, and Mr. Gilbert would certainly not add to his }>opularlty by deprlviug the public of the pleasure of seeing MIns Anderson m one of her best Imrnrsoiiatloiis. A great deal oi curiosity Is being expressed by theatre­ goers to see the .\merlean star iii tlie part of .luliet. and It Is very probably that she will make this selection when a change from‘‘Ingoinar” is made, if a Homeo bold and prudent enough can be found to supuort her. .Mr. tieorge Augustus .“^ala. who has taken quite an Interest in Miss Anderson, ridicules the selection of • “Ingouiar” lor a debut. Ho says that the play Is pujtular in Amcrica because In that country every woman N a queen. From the siiore ol Care Cod to the GoUleii Gate she is w <rshipped w Ith aaoratlon almost verir- liigon Idhtcy, aud treated with a gallantry far be- voiid the limits of reason. This.Mr. Sala says,is me reason whv rarthenia pleases in the I nited States and why the selection of such a character was a bad one for a London audience, for in England woman Is not looked upon as particularly em- bodyiug .all the heavenly virtues, and Englislimcn are not carried away by tiie seiitlnii-nt for female hcrolsm'whlch so strongly obtaUis on the other side of the Atlantic. Another critic savs tliat Miss Anderson has been so li.unmered to shape by tridueis and tutors that the hammer marks are more consiucuous than the design which she was Intended to buiid up. Vantlnis or Thieve» In WurwU-k Cuatie. An act of vandalism, which has aroused the Indignation of all England, has just come to light lu W arwlck Castle. As all travellers will remem- l>er, after the Warwick vase the chief object of interest and value Is the famous begemmed table. This splendid work of art, besides its rare carvings, is studded with rare aud costly old jewels, whose Intrinsic value alone amouuts to several thousand pounds. This table Is supposed to be never left unguarded during the hours when visitors are allowed through the ancient demesne and Is watched with lealous care at all times. The other day, to the intenso hidlgnatlou aud disgust of ihe keepers. It was discovered that the precious relic had been sut>- jectedto the depredations of either thieves or vandals. The table was literally ruined. The more valuable of the earvlnns had been pried or chopped oil and the body of the article was all split and broken and a great number of the jewels gone. All the fragments had been carried away. A tiiorough Invesligution was made, and It was ascertained that a iiarty of Amerh ans had been Inspecting the table a short time before the discovery ot the outrage. The Americans were the last visitors in the apartment before the discovery and they were permitted to continue their examination of tlie relic during a Dricf absence ot the keeper. When he returned the table was a nun. .Vn alarm was sounded but no trace of the American partv couui be found. It Is suggested that the parly were i>ossibly disguised tnelves. X<ondon Markets T..ooklng: Up. The present feeling in the London market is that the worst is past. With cheap money, a good harvest and the return of the holiday makers, a much better market is expected, anti renewed investments will undoubtedly have a stltteulng efiect and cause a change in the direction of higher prices. There has been a great deal of Euglihh money invested In American rallwav shares during the past fev.’ weeks, despite the constant attacks made on these securities by parties interested In the prolongation of the bear market, or for the puri)Ose of directing loose capital into other chaimefs. Siote». Kev. Mr. Newman Hall still hopes to visit tho United States. Jean Marie Mlche Geoffrey, the actor. Is dead at Paris, aged C3. The government has decided to give a thorough hearing to Mr. Shaw and to ask tlio French government for compensation If ho makes out a grievance. Minister Morton’s party at Piiy included Senator Itandall L. ,'Ubson of Louisiana, Congressman Tom Ochiltree of Texas, i>r. Beard, Colonel Kitchle and Consul Bailey. Marw'ood, Uie hangman. It Is now stated, died of congestion oi the lungs. He was a very hard drinker, and his disease was undoubtedly brought on by his intemperate habits. Eight Danish aiid two Belgian socialists were today expelled from Hamburg. This action is one of tlie first results of Prince Bismarck’s recent report to the Kelchstag on Socialism. Mr. Andrew Carnegie, the Pittsburg steel manufacturer, on Wednesday finished his coaching tour through Scotland at Glasgow. He sailed tor tho United States today. He will return to England next January. SAIL. AFTER SAIL PASSED BY. Terrible BulfferinKs ot the Crew of m Bffalne Briar in a Buri-lcane. Baltehoee, September 8.—Tlie English steamship Deerhound arrived here late last evening from Swansea, England. She brought with her Captain C. L. Whitney, wife and crew of tho American brig Joseph Clark, which they had discovered water-logged and sinking on Seiitcmber 4, latitude 32'^, lonsiitude C7°40'. Captain Whitney tells a most harrowjiiig story of the sufferings his crew passing through, The Inig, owned by .)o- seph Clark of Waldoboio, Me., sailed August 12 from liockport. Me., with 550 tons of ice consigned to the Pensacola Ice Company, Pensacola, Florida. Captain Whitney was accompanied by his newly-married wife, this being their wedding trip. The lady had but lately arrived In New York from Ge many, and is the daughter of the master ot a Korv\eiian bark. Tluiie were seven others in the erew, including Flist Mate Peterson, Second Mate Anderson and the stew.-ird. Shortly after leaving liockport they encountered heavy weather, and on the 22d and the 29th 1 heir vessel was disniasleil and ;tll the spars and rlguing were carried away. On tho 30th a terrible hurricane blew. The vessel’s sides opened, she leaked badlv, and all hands were kept constantly at the pnnips. From the time she lost her masts and Mipars Captain Whitney man- atred to kcej> her before the sea, md a slirnal of distress was hoisted. On the 28t.n they sighted two Spanish sti ainers and a ship tin its beam ends. The next niorning-they saw a Swedish barU, with part ot her sail.s gone aud buhvurks stove in, 111 iiersrly tlie saihe place. They sigiiallod evervthuig that earne In sight, out all sailed awav bv them without oflerlug assistance. On the ' 4tli insr. they were sighted, hull down, bv the British steamer Jieerhound. Tne captain of the Deerhound says they brought nothing on board but s.uiie few clothes, and appeared afraid the steamer would sail away wltn- out them, as the others had done. The captain aud his wile were so mucli exhausted from their terrible experience, loss of rest and liardsiilp, that the captain of the Deerhound had to pour brandy down their throats to bring them to. They had not sulfereaforwa.it of food, but it was the horrible agony of seeing sail after sail pass by wltliout coming to their relief and the dangers of another storm coming up and carrylmr ail to tho bottom of the ocean, that aroused them to such effort and weakened them. Captahi Whitney and his wife aud crew were full of ex- l>resslons of gratitude to Caputin Atkinson for taking them off the brig and giving them passage and comforts during the remaiuder oi the trip to Baltimore. ______ A ORUNKEJM MAN'S ACT.

B altimobe , September 8—The sudden death of Mrs. Crudden today caused an investigation of her demise, when it was ascertained that she had died of fright. Tue following Interesting details, which had been kept quiet by the family, were biought to light by investigation. Two days auo her brother-ui-law, Charles Simpsou, who llves'witli her, aud who is a stone-cuttcr by trade, went out on the Western Maryland railroad a few miles from the city to get work. He got drunk histead, aud while attempting to walk a high trestle, two miles from the city, was overtaken by an express train. The road is a single track, and the engineer (ioula not stop the tralu lu time. As the latter approached Simpson steadied himself, aud drawing his revolver fired three shots into the cab Of the approaching locomotive, the enmneer dodging the bullets. Simpson then jumped (jfl the bridge, whlcii Is aeveutv feet high. S.aae friends who sav/ the act went down and picked him up and took him home. His shoulder Is broken aud he Is injured fatally Internally It is thought. When his slster-in-lnw saw him brought home all covered with blood .she fainted and never rallied. Simpson IS very low. The engineer was so frighteued that he did not stop the traUi to see what had become of the supposed lunatic. Not to be Deceived for Nothing* New York, September G.—Fritz Miller, a German immigrant, who arrived from Hamburg on Wednesday, who complained before Superintendent Jackson at Castle Garden that Charlotte Wulze had taken 1300 marks of his money and his baggage, and had repudiated her promise to marry him. The woman was found at a hoiuding- house on Uattery place. She iidmltted that she had taken his property and that she iiad crossed the oceau at his expense on promise to marry him. She had discovered, however, th;it he was already married. As to his baggage and money, she intended to keep them to punish him for dtict:iving her. Xlie woman wu3 peruiitted to go. THE PRESIDENT’S HOLIDAY. His Daily Life in the Yellowstone Park. In the Saddle, in Camp and Among the Ueysers—A Sovel Snnday Serviee. Wonders of HeU’s Half Acre-'Eug-ged and Romantic Scenery. NEW' Y ohk , September 9.—Tho correspondent ot the New York Herald sends the following correspondence, dated Mammoth Hot Springs, Yellowstone Park. September 2; To travel HlK)0 miles aud find the President ot the United States encamped In the heart of the KoeRy mountains, among solitudes that within a decade were tho hiding-places ol Indians, and yet are at this moment peooled by tourists from America and Europej to see this chief m.agls- trate of the nation “roughing if' like any ordinary mortal, on foot and on horseback, aud only dllicrlng from other travellers In the number, variety aud choice of his escort. Is an experience that Is not likely to be repeated In one’s lifetime. It has been widely known that the presidential party was sojourning in these wilds and leisurely making Its way homeward to the East. We were, therefore, not surprise I whilo eu route to the Upper Geyser basin of the itsllowstoue Park to meet a handsome closed vehicle, drawn by four “staiwart'’ mules, trotting at a lively pace and followed by an open wagon, it was not dlQlcult to recognize In tho first the burly form of General Arthur, his round face ruddy with health, his head heimeted and his body suucly encased In a linen duster; by hi< side Robert Lincoln, and on the seat with the driver Colonel Michael Sheridan. In the rear wagon were tJeneral Sheridan, Senator Vest, Governor Crosby of Montaua aud two other oHIcials. A halt was made at that wonder of wonders in this region, “Hell’s Half Acre,” and here tho party alighted to witness that curious freak of the elements known as the "Excelstor Geyser,” a monster cavity, i!50 feet In length, 200 feet In width, and irom 20 to 30 feet deep. The presidential party lingered here for half an hour or more. The I’resident expressed the pleasure that had everywhere attended las trip. It was the first day In two weeks, he said, Tbut he hud been In Ilia Ambulanee. and he was really beginning to feel 111 at ease when not astride of his favorite horse. No reference wliatever was made to public afiairs, and they seem to be a tabooed subject amoi.g his fol- linvers, save, perhaps. In the confidential recesses oi his tent. We reached the ofllclal encamnment a few miles further oil. m the Upper (ieyser basin. It was after dark, and a more romantic or picturesque view Is rarelv accorded to the tourist. The uuar- ters assigned to Mr. Kufus ILitch’s excursion party consisted of twenty wall tints, sometimes containing a comforlaule double ped, but more fre- {luentiy a “shake down" or two ('ii the dry earth; a candle set in a beer boHle, a pitcher and basin and an abundance of towels, in the rear of this semi-circlo of canvas households, situated on liie slope ol a hill commanding a view of the entire basin, with Its scores of restless geysers, was tho cncanipment of the President, treneral Slierldan aud their personal stalls and body guard. Great lires of spruce an<l fir llchted the scene, and artmnd oue of these tvere urouped Ihe presidential party. apj)areutiy enjoyini? the witlielsnis of Senator Vest of Missouri, who is reputed to be one of the best story tellers In the expedition, and, next to the chief magistrate, Its luckiest fisherman. A number of strangers presented themselves for introduction, among them being several Eiig- lisli travellers, ulio were evideully astonished not more by the intormallty ot the proceedings than by the frontier carelessness lu dress that characterized the gentlemen coiuiwslng the party, from General Arthur down to tne Indian scout and guide, Frank tilrard. who, with others, was enjoying a quiet bivouac of his own. It has been tlie rule of Mr. Arthur, durhig this vacation, 'ro Kite nt Bayliicht and retire between U and 10 o’clock in the evening, the liours meanwhile being occupied either in the saddle or casting a fiy for trout, and it is to tills regularity of habit that his present good health Is unquestlouahly due. By the way, an oflicer mentioned the fact today, as Indicating tiio character of tne true sportsmnii, that the President never killed more game thau could be used In camp, and, fiirtherinoie, that In breakliiK camp his orders are ini|jeratlve to extinguish every vestige of a lire, and for this purpose a force oi men were always left behind. It was the Intention ot the party to attend divine service in our camp the next day, the large dlning-tent being well auaiited lor the purpose, and Bishop Force of the diocese l>eing present to olliciate. Cnfortunately, however, this plan miscarried, owing to the poverty of the forage necessary lor a large escort and a pack tralu of nearly 200 mules, and before breakfast time the 'dlstlngulslied visitors had folded their tents and silently stolen away. The good bishop must have been disap- jioiuled, for lie had prepared a discourse that, under tlie circumstances, was doubly Impressive; first, because never before had a sermon been preached within sluht of this nest of geysers, and, second, it was prefaced by the singniarlv apprt*- priate 104th I’salm, and emphasized during Its delivery by one of the grandest outbursts of Old Faithful—the name ot the watery volcano that every sixty minutes by watch pours forth a cry.s- tal stream to the height of ICO leet, mingling always viith its own beauty the rainbows that seem to make their hiding place among Its shadowy clouds. The Incident was oue to be long remembered. Off for the Grand Ganrou. The presidential party struck the trail for tho falls and great canyon of the Yellowstone, and a ¡Mirtlon of our owu company reached ti e locality during the afteruoon of the following day. Our c xmp, as before, consisted of a series of wall tents, wiierem, If tho conveniences were not such as WiiUid be supplied by a Delmonico, they were, at least, welcome alter a dusty ride of forty iiiiies. The weather was cool enough at niglit to make overcoats and blankets necessary, aud every one was glad to hug the great flies ihat blazed among the rocks. The quarters chosen for the I’tesldeut were on an eminence cominauding a view more magnificent lhan ever poet conceived or artist portrayed. And the chiet enjoyed it to the full. Scarciiy waiting for the tents to be erectcd, he was in tlie saddle agalu, aud, followed by his staii, clambcrlng up aud down the toweilug clllfs or pausing at every vantage point to ponder over the majestic beauties of the place. At limes the trail was so narrow that the horses could walk only hi Indian tile, and 80 dangerous that a misstep would have plunged animal and rider hunureds of feet below Into the tumbling cataract that winds its sinuous course at the base of the canyon. But, determined to see all, he frequently dismounted to ascend some lofty promontory and lingered long, as if loath to come away. He afterward declared that It was the most wonderful spot he had ever visited or dieamed of as being possible lu nature. Pen cannot fitly describe the scene and brush and color must always fail In endeavoring to preserve the ettects of light aud shade that play incessantly upon these marvellous masses of rock and waterfall. Kefercnce has beec made to the camping ar- raugmentsof the President’s party. Fancy him first on the march. Proceeded by guides—trequently Indians, who are familiar with every foot ot tho territorytu e trail tuey have chosen is slowly followed across the country, the average day’s journey belug about tweuty-flve miles. The military escort consists of sixty cavalrymen selected from the neighboring posts, and in the train you may count upward of 100 pack mules, who bear tiie burden of tents, truiiks and supplies. The President, Secretary Lincoln, General Sheridan and stafl:, all well mounted. Jog along at a pace not much faster than a walk Without Special Keferenoe a* to Kank. There is abiuidant material for amusement and conversation, and as the company are thoroughly congenial the hours glide by almost imperceptibly. A generous Itmch Is an Important feature of the programme of the day, aud when, in the afternoon, the party reacli a resting place It is to find everything in readiness for their voceptlou. Now look within one of these tents. A comfuruble drugget Is on the floor, a soft bed Invites repose; trunks have been brought up aud unpacked, toilet articles he around promiscuously :ind the wardrobes of the occupants dangle from the roof tree in a confusion that you will find nowhere else Dut in camp. A bath in the nearest spring Is a part oi the day’s religion, and by this time the plates In the mess tent are awaiting a hungry assault. Dinner over, the chairs are drawn around the fire; overcoats are in order; the adventures of the journey are rehearsed; Colonel Mike Sheridan, the brother of "Little i'hil,” anuouiices the contents of his last despatch to the Associated Press of the countrv; a line of couriers are started on their lonely gallop to connect with the nearest telegcaph staTiou, and the decimals dlssolv Into fractions until no oue is left but the holitary guards whose chief duty It is to keep watch aud ward over the sleeping camp. The President and party arrived at the Mammoth SiiruiKs yestcrdaj, camped about a mile dis­ tant from the Motel ; received sueh Rue»ts a^ chose to call; in tiie evenln«r were ^eren!.d^'d hv the Mendelsshon (luarteit luli, altaeUed to >lr.

Great Itamase to Crop« AU Throuith the Vfeiteru litate». CHioAoo, September 10.—Reiiorts from hundreds of Northwestern points agree that the frosts have done Incalculable damaire to the corn belt of the country, that covers all the low lands over a large area. The corn Is almost totally destroyed. especially In Minnesota and .Mlehigaii, where th»? destrucllou of cereals Is nearly complete. Tlu‘ Wisconsin tobacco Is i>rol»ably ti-tally ruined. Mo serious damage Is reporled In llllnlos or Iowa.

A few weeks ano 1 traded a twenty-tnousivnd-dollar lot of diamonds for a house that belonged to a well-known society lady. After the bargain liad been closed, the diamonds deposited in my safe, and the deed brought out for her signature, she asked to see the stones.
