ISSUING OF THE NEW NINETY-TWO CENT. DOLLAR.
-The excenge of the new Silver Dollar commen-
ced at the int at Philadelphia on the morning of
the 18th Instant. In about 8 hours $1,000 worth
had been disbursed. $100,000 were to be .sent to
New York on the 14th and $10,000 to Washington.
The coinage thereafter will be at the rate of $40,-
000,000 per day.
THE FISHERY AWARD.-The indications in the
Senate on the 11th instant, are that, while there
will be no little decided opposition to abiding by
the decision of the board of arbitration, and while
very general sentiment in Congress is against the
justice of the award, still both houses will be found
firmly resolved to pay in full the five millions and
a.half. It is also thoughtprobable that the amount
will be paid out of the undistributed Geneva fund.
" We have been," says the N. Y. Journal of Com-
merce of the 13th Initant, "outgeneralled, if not
overreached, by British diplomacy and legal abil-
ity in this matter. Our only solace is that we were
"smarter" at Geneva, and that England has pro.
vided us with the means of settling with her
daughter., Neatly beaten at our own game, we
should now pay up "like a gentleman" and be
thankful that we have "' British gold" to do it with.
It is the huge size of the award that staggers some
of our countrymen. They want to get rid of it, as of
the honest payment of the national debt because it is so
very big I We cannot approve of the one piece of
shirking more than of the other."

ITALY--LONDON, March 14.-The Times has the
following despatch:
"Roxg, March 18.--The Government's action

Bishoprics in the former Kingdom of Naples;are

and guarantees they judge necessary for the secu-
rity of the Suez Canal and good government of the
country.
All the points to be submitted.-It is asserted in
Paris that Germany thinks nearly all the points of
the San Stefano preliminaries should be submitted
to the Congress, and Russia has shown herself al-
most disposed to accept this view.
Hungary Votes the Credit.-The Hungarian De.
legation yesterday voted in committee the grant of
3,720,000 florins for urgent and extraordinary army
and navy requirements.
More Turkish Butcheries.-A special from Corfu
to the Times reports that the Turks have devastated
eight Christian Villages in the district of Delvino
and massacred the male inhabitants. They also
killed 100 fugitive women and children on the sea
shore. The English Consul has gone to investi-
gate the outrages.

THE WAR ESTIMATES.
In the House of Commons on 4th March, Mr.
Gathorne Hardy, Secretary of State for War, in-
troduced the war estimates. In his speech he
avoided all exciting topics, confining himself to
technical details. He stated that the estimates had
been framed on a strictly peace tooting, as would
be the case whatever apprehensions were enter-
tained.
[Note.--All preparations against the contingency
of the despatch of an expeditionary force are in-
cluded under the six million vote.]
Mr. Hardy said there was a growing feeling that
the Militia should not be exclusively employed
within their own counties. Some of the finest
regiments had placed their services absolutely at
the Government's disposal. The Government,
deeming It desirable to revive the autumn manoeu-
vres, intended this year to assemble near Salisbury
36,000 men ready for foreign service. He trusted
that the army might not be called upon for active
service, but he felt confident that, if it should be, it
would not be found deficient.
The House then passed the vote, fixing the
strength of the army at 185,452 men.
The Right Hen. Gathorne Hardy, in answer to
a question by Mr. Charles Morgan Norwood (Li-
beral), member for IHull, said that the matter of the
defence of the commercial ports of England was
being carefully considered at the present moment.
THE CONGRESS.-LoNDON,March 11.-In the
House of Lords to-night the Earl of Derby, reply-
ing to Lord Stratheden, said the question whether
the Congress would have full materials to form a
judgment on all the questions to be submitted was
undoubtedly of great importance. He considered
it useless and foolish to go into the Congress unless
it had real, not merely nominal, power of dealing
with the matters before it. Her Majesty's govern-
ment is now in communication with other govern.
ments on this subject.
The Times of this morning in its leading editorial
article contends that Russia must submit every one
of the peace conditions to the Congress, not except-
ing the indemnity clause. She has no right," says
the article, "to be dictator over Turkey. The
great powers did not invite her to make war or give
her a commission to replace the Government of the
Poite in any way she might think fit."
LONDON, March 14.--The Vienna Political Cor-
respondenee says a conviction prevails in St. Peters-
burg that the British armaments reveals England's
intention to occupy some point in the Levant, possi-
bly Mitylene. Russia would then have to consider
the safety of her Black Sea coast, which is only a
few hours' sail from Mitylene.
Gathering near the Dardanelles.-The Standard
announces in official form that the British squadron
in the Mediterranean is now at Besika Bay, and
will advance to the Dardanelles, so as to be nearer
Admiral Commerell, who commands off Gallipoli.
Admiral Commerell's squadron thus becomes more
powerful than Admiral Hornby's, and will form a
reliable reserve.
Russian and Turkish Naval Movements.-Captain
Syenetchkine, of the Russian navy, is about to
proceed to New York to inspect fast steamers
available for transport service. Hobart Pacha was
ordered to sail for the coast of Thessaly to-day.
The Conditions not yet Ratified.--According to a
despatch from Constantinople the visit of the
Grand Duke Nicholas to the Sultan has been
postponed until after the treaty of peace is ratified.
" Immediately after the arrival of General Ignatieff
and Reouf Pacha in St. Petersburg," says the Po-
litical Correspondence of Vienna the conditions of
peace will be communicated to the Powers."
St. Petersburg not Uneasy.- 'he -St. Petersburg
correspondent of the Times says the accounts of the
warlike preparations of England an.l Austria cause
but 1 ttle excitement. The conviction that peace
will be maintained is very general.
Difficulties about the Conference.-A despatch from
Berlin says that Prince Bismarck will not go to his
Lauenburg estate for the benefit of his health, as
was stated in a Berlin despatch yesterday, and that
the German government will not issue invitations to
the Congress until all difficulties about the subjects
to be considered threat are removed. "These dif.
faculties," says the despatch, "appear more serious
thanwas anticipated. The general prospect is con-
sidered in well informed circles to be far from en-


not."
Roumania Protests.-A special dispatch to the
Standard from Vienna says the Roumanian agent
will hand to Count Andrassy a memorandum to-
morrow, intimating that Roumania refuses to be
bound by the Russo-Turkish peace preliminaries.
meeting ng Egland's Demand about Greece.-The
Paris correspondent of the Standard says it is ru-
mored in that city that Prince Gortschakoff has
intimated that if Greece is represented in the Con.
gress Servia and Montenegro must be admitted.
A special despatch from Berlin reports that the
various governments have agreed in principle to
the represention of Greece at the Congress. Va-
rious correspondents at Vienna discredit the report
that Russia will favor the admission of Servia,
Roumania and Montenegro to the Congress.
England and France agreed about Egypt.-It now
seems certain, says a Paris despatch this morning,
that England and France will arrive at an agree-
ment on the Egyptian question before the meeting
of the Congress, and will submit thereto the reforms

The Very Latest News.
From the Second Edition (2 p.m) of the New York
Commercial Advertiscr, March 14.
LONDON, March 14.-A special despatch from
Berlin to the Times says :--"The Anglo-Austrian
demand Mf the whole of the Russo-Turkish agree-
ment shall be submitted to the Congress arises from
the belief that special ard secret arrangements have
been entered into independent of the principal
treaty. It would be clearly useless to examine the
latter unless Russia guarantees that it contains all
that has been done. The Journal de St. Petersburg's
intimation that Russia will refuse to submit all the
points of the treaty to the Congress, and its state-
ment that if the mission of the Congress is to result
in peace subjects not of a European character, and
which might lead to excited and resultless discus-
sion, must be set aside, has strengthened the cur-
rent belief in a secret treaty."
LONDON, March 14.-A special despatch from
Vienna to the Daily Telegraph says: Russia has
intimated her desire that the Congress meet on the
80th of March, which is the twenty-second anni-
versary of the signature of the Treaty of Paris.
The Austrian Government firmly anticipates that
the Congress will assemble on that day, but it
seems hardly possible that everything can be ready
so soon."
To be put into Commission.--The Daily News-has a
special despatch from Plymouth saying: "The
Wivern, a turret ship, built for the Southern Con-
federacy, but detained by the Government, and
ever since moored. in the harbor, has now been
brought to the Devonport Dock Yard to be prepared
for commission."
LONDON, March 14.-The damage by the Ore in
Dunville distillery at Belfast last night was half a

Thirty-six Persons Drowned.--Thirt y-six excur.
sionists who were attending a fair at Brest, France,
were drowned to-day by the capsizing of a barge.

CURFEW MUST NOT RING T NlNV1iI. lT
(From the New York Journal of C,(imerce.)
We have bad -many inquiries for this Ipoem,
and its author: It is a stock piece with elocution-
ists, and very often read in public. We obtained a
copy some time since, in answer to a request from
a correspondent, but as it was prefaced'with an in-,
timation that it had been altered .in adaptation to
some special time and .place, ,we hesitated about
publishing it, and have made a diligent search for
the original. This we have found in a charming
work entitled "N newspaper poets, or Waifs andi
their authors,", by Alpbonso A. Hopkins, now edit-'
or of the Rural Home, Rochesetr, New York.
The poem to which we now refer is founded on
an incident in English history. In the days of the
Protectorate a young soldier was condemned o die
at the rfiging of the Curfew." His friends inter-
ceded for him in vain ; and a fair young girl, who
was attached to him, pleaded with his judges to
ipare his life, at least until 'the hour when she
could see the stern Cromwell herself, but her efforts
were fruitless. She then sought to bribe the sexton
to omit the Curfew for a single day, but be was also
inexorable. The hour drewon, and the executioner
stood awaiting the signal which, as the-poem will
show, did not sound that night. .
For the benefit of our younger readers we may
ay that the ringing of the Curfew bell (from couvre-
feu, to cover the fire) was a practice established in
England by its Norman conqueror. All the inhabit-
ants were required to cover their fires, extinguish
their lights, and retire to rest at nightfall, and the
bell was rung as a signal at the appointed hour.
The poem was written by Miss Rosa Hartwick
(now the wife of Edmund C. Thorpe)in April 1S67.
She was born in Mishawaka, Jnd., July 18th, 1850,
and was in her 17th year When she read this little
story of Love and Loyalty"' and told it so sweetly
in rhyme. It was first printed in the fall of 1870 in
the Detroit Commercial A:ierliier. Mrs. Thorpe was
married ih. 1871, and now resides in 'Litchfield, t
Mich. She has written many other poems, but
none more popular than this.

* VCurEw MusT NOT RTING To-NIOHT." !--
Slowly England's sun was setting o'er the hill-tops far
away,- .. ..
Fillin'gall the land with beauty at the close of one sad
day,
And the last rays kissed the forehead of a man and,
maiden fair, 1
He with footsteeps slow. and weary, she with sunny,
.-. floating hair;- .
He with bowed head, sad ai'& d thoughtful,- she with lips
all cold and white,
Struggling to keep back' the murmur- -
"Curfer must not ring.to-night."
"Sexton," Bessie's white lips faltered, pointing' o the
-prison' old,;.
With its turrets tall and gloomy, with its walls dark,
damp and cold,
"I've a lover in that prison, doomed this very night
to die,
At the ringing of the curfew and no earthly help is
nigh; .
Cromwell will not come till sunset," and her lips grew
strangely white
SAs-,she breathed the husky whisper:
"Curfew must not ring to-night.":
"Bessie," calmly spoke the sexton-every word pierced
.her young heart .
Like the piercing of an arrow, like a- deadly poisoned
dart, I..,
"Long. long. years I've rung the Curfew from that
gloomy, shadowed tower;
Every evening, just at sunset, it has told the twilight.
..hour; '
I have done my duty ever, iried to do it just and right,
Now I'm old I still must do it,
"Curfew it must ring to-night.1'
Wild hei eyes and tlale her features, stern .and white
her thoht-liffiul brow,
And within her secret. hosort Bessfe made a solemn
vow. .
She hadl listened while e 'the judges read.without a tear or
sigh: -
S"At the ringing of the Curfew, Basil Underwood must
die" -
SAfindher l,reathn eame -fast, and faster, and lrer eyes grew
large and-bhright--. ...
In an undertond she murmiiured: .
".:Gurrtw must not ring lo-niglit." "'
She with quick steps bounded forward,. sprung within
the old church door,
Left the old man threading slowly pathsso oft he'd trod
* before;,.. ./ : ..
Not one moment paused tih maiden, but with eye and
cheek aglow, I .
Mounted up the gloomy tower, where the bell swung to
and fro -
As she climbed the dusty ladder on which fell no ray of
light,
"Up'and up-her white lips saying- '
.. Curfew shall not ring to-night." '
She has reached the topmost ladder, o'er her hangs the
great dark bell:
Awful is the gloombeneath her, like the pathwaiy down
to hell.' -
L- t the ponderous tongue is swinging, 'tis.the hour of
Curfew.now, .. : ., .
'And The ,sight huas chilled her bosom, stopped her
*-breath'an5 paled her brow .. "
.$halsha le.t it ring P No, never! Flash hei'r yes
with sudden light, -
And she springs and grasps t firmly--
Curfew shall not Ping to-tiight."
Out ie swing, far out, the city seemed a speck of
t' .light below, -
'Twixt Heaven and earth her form suspended, as the.
ndbell swung to and fro. .. ,.... ..-
And the sexton at the bell-rope, old and deaf, heard


not the bell, : -
.But he.thought it still was ringing fair young Basil's
funeral knell;.
*Still the maiden clung more firmly, and with trembling
lips and white, .
S Said to hush her heart's wild beating- .
"Curfew shall not ring to-night." :
"It wos o'er, the b.e11 ceaed swaying, and the maiden.

\* A rr.f'",-.' V.ENT T"Y CONSULS.
AMr. Southard Pru o the Election of 7hree Joint
' Presidents one E wli from the East, South and West.
WASHINGTON, Feby. 25.--Representative South-
ard,, of Ohio, Chairman of the Committee on the
revision of the laws regulating the counting of the
electoral votes for President and Vice President,
introduced a bill to-day, proposing an amendment
to the (-Cnstittion. The offering of this bill is
the more important because, as it is understood,
it represents the opinion of a portion at least of
that committee, and may, therefore, be brought
before Congress for its action during the present
session.
The amendment proposed by Mr. Southard pro-
vides that the executive power of the United States
shall be vested in three Presidents, who shall con-
stitute a supreme executive council.. These Presi-
dents are to be elected by the qualified voters of all
the States, one President to be taken from each of
the three prominent sections of the country known
as the East and Middle States, the West, and the
South. No two of the Presidents are to be from
the same section or district of country. Thb term
of office of the Presidents is to be six years, and no
one having served the full term is tb be eligible for
a-re-election. By the first election held under this
article of the Constitution, should it be adopted,
the President from the Western District is to be
chosen for a fractional term of 'two years ; the one
from the Southern District for a fractional term of
four years; and the one from the Eastern and Mid-
dle Districts for the full term of six years. After the
first election one President is to be chosen every
two years.
It is also proposed to abolish the office of Vice-
President, and to provide instead that once in four
years the Senate shall elect a President who is not
a member of that body, and who, as presiding offi-
cer, shall exercise allthe-authority now exercised
by the Vice-President. The compensation of each
President is fixed at not exceeding $80,000 a year.

The correspondent of the New York Times, whose
prejudices in favor of the Turks have never been
concealed, writes from Constantinople that Turkey
-what is left-is on the eve of a revolution, and
that the most sanguine can only venture to hope
that it will be a pacific one. He gives us some in-
teresting information concerning the refugees who
have flocked to Constantinople, and of whose suf-
ferings we have had such pathetic accounts. He
says of these poor victims of Russiau barbarity :
"Meanwhile, these ruffians, for whom European
commiseration is solicited, continue to hawk
through the streets and bazaars.ofStamboul the fruits
of their hideous rapine; their purses are full of gold
and their affairs are not yet wound up ; church or-
naments and vestments stolen from Christian tem-
ples ; rings and bracelets torn from the inhabitants
of the provinces whence -they have been obliged to
migrate; flocks of sheep, herds of cattle, horses, don-
keys, goats, clothes, are sold for'a mere song in the
public thoroughfares, and this without any real hin-
drance from the tthorities. It is tiuethatttheZap-
tiehs have been ordered to seizethe animals in which
theytraffic, but they fulfil those orders only after the
sale has been effected, and confiscate them only from
the purchasers, who, as a rule, are less well armed
than the venders, and therefore less dangerous to be
dealt with.' Nor are these scenes confined to
Constanlinople; I witnessed their repetition in the
streets ot Smyrna, where our steamer stopped for a
few hours, and. I am assured that all along, the
coast the !ame thing occurs on the morrow of the
arrival of a transport of refugees from Europe. Of
the acts of rape and mnuider told me by English
gentlemen attached to the Stafford House Commit-
tee and the Red Crescent, as seen by them on their
journey down from the Balkans, within the last
three weeks, I dare not give the details.' They are
to revoltinigfor 'uhb ication, unless I could add,
as I cannot, that I was an eye-witness of their per.
We repeat ihlit this is the testimony! of a corres-

the T'ikl;s, ar.d who never took the trouble to-con-
ceal his di-testation of the 1RZu-sians, at w ihoin he
