To prove the priao&er'a insanity Mr. .Scovilleexpects to proiluce witnesses to show tlmt insanity is heredltary in the Guiteau faraily.

It is feportéd that the arrest of i'arnell is a jireliniiiiaiy Itcp to u still more vigorous action sgaln&t land league. Since his arrest threatcning letters have been reeelved bjjr Mr. GlwJgtone and Bir William Harcourt, BecreUry of State; and letters ofVympatliy by Parnell. The btgse regaréf the arrest as au act OÍ personal fpite on the part of Mr. Gludütoiic The sympathizers with the Iiisli peoplftaage the lattertO stand lirm, afliriniur that the Knrlisli governinent ennnotimprisonthe vvhole people nor check their onward movenient. Meetings of cymiKUhy with l'arnull have úeen Held in this country at Xnv Torlfc Philadelphia, Won-esier. Sr. and other places. At Boston Wendcll I'hillips made a few remarles, eUlmin'ilwt tlicre are tO,000,000 Irisli people in tliis country that have not forgötten Huir fatlicrlam'. The arrest of I'nrncll is uu unfortuuate step lcadingto more serious riotin-r thn ever. There has been a greatdealof talk lately about mutilated coinn. Ai onr notii u was rather forcihly called lo tliis sulij.it a tcw dnys ajo i,y Ui,, refuial of a peiion In thls city to take a coin wilh a liolu in i, a few words on this subject may not be out of place. The custom of punchiiig holes in colns probably origiuated wlien silver and gold currency wasscarce. It WBï not lmu, however, bef ore certuin lascáis conecived the idea of gatherin-,' coin-, pnnchlng u large holes n them os lliey dared and gav"ÍÍ the silver tbus removed to melt and sell as bullion. Thi.s -ame set of ],el!y swindlers conecived tmtrtt áadgt reeently and actcd aeconüngly. Tlieru appeared in public places in New York iiiider the liead of "Notice to Customers" the foïlowlng statement: "Tlic Dnlted States (ovcru" ment ha.s fixed the following rail sllver coins with holes in thcni: Dollars, 65 cents; half-dollars, :!.") -ents; nuaiiei-dollars, 15 cents; dimes, ."i cent, and live-, 4 cents. These are placed opon coins so punehed wiUi a view lo MlHng in and stoppinf the unlawful practiceof 'mntilating' silver inoney of the United .States." The fact is that the Government lias never issued sucli a notiec. The plan ot the authors of this swindle is to circuíate around throu,'h the country, gfttber up coin at 1,-s than its value by weight ud Ml] it ag bulllon. TIhh BaUof a little protil. It is hopetl that the result of tliia matter will be to stop tlie circulation of nnitilatcd coin altogether. Later new in regard to the oonrse that Scorille is taklug in tryiug to awaken sympathy for (.uiteau. leadl Ui tu adil a few words.

Any man tliat will listen to such au appeal in behalf of a coldbloodeil nQrd erer ig lakinj; in C'lu itian cliarity.
