A letter frorn au oflScer of the United States steamer Franklin, dated off the coast of Portugal, gives the details of the order recoived by the commander of that vessel from the Navy Department relative to Tweed. The letter says that the telegram requested the Consul to detain any United States Government vesfiel passing out of the straits uutil orders could come from Washington. A few hours later a dispatch from the Secretary of the Navy ordered us to remain at Gibraltar for further orders. The next day came telegraphic orders from Washington to proceed' to Vigo, conimunicate with the United States Minister, and receive Tweed on board, place him under strict guard, allow him no communication with the crew, and upon arrival at New York to allow no communication with the shore until instructions shall be received from the Navy Department as to his final disposal. A postscript to the letter, dated "Vigo, Spain," has the following additional : " We climbed the hill to the castle, bnt admittance ws denied us, because the Government had given orders to allow no communication with the priaoner. The people generally are opposed to giving the old sinner up, but the Government had no hesitation in taking him, upon the arrival of the bark Trom Cuba with the fugitivos on board. The Governor of the province went on board and found the Boss in his shirtsléeves, barefooted, in the midst of sciubbing deck. The old Boss lookR quite jolly, and has brass enough to last Sim 100 years. He will bo confined to the cabin during the whole passage, and white in port an officer is always present with him." Co-Operation in tíreat Britain. The following romarka are from the opening puragraphs of Charles Barnard's paper on "A Scottish Loaf Faetory," in Scribner for November : Co-operation, in its more particular sense, refers to the combination or union of a number of people, eiüier to supply themselves with certain staple articles of eonsumption, or to manufacture some artielo that may be sold for their mutual benefit. Wheii it has to do with selling coals, provisions, and other goods, it is ealled " distributive co-operation." The other kind of co-operation, the trnion for work, is ealled "produetive co operation." The aim of both distiibutive and productive co-operation is primarily to benefit the co-operators in a finanoial sense ; but it must be noticed that the original aim of distribntive co-operation was not so much to buy and sell toas and sugars at a profit as to get good teas and pure sugars. If the British shopman resents the advent and progress of the co-operative movement ; if he complains that it is stealing his trade, and bringing ruin to his door, he has himself mucíi to blame. Distributive co-operation began as a natural protest against his sanded sugars and painted teas, his demoralizing " gratuitiep," and his ruinous system of credits. He had sought to win two profits ; and the poor buyers, the flannelweaver of Eochdale, and iíondon postónico clerk, rose in rebellion, andbought their own teas. The city man tucked his single chest under the back stairs of the General Postoffice and doled out tlie tea " af ter-hoiirs. " The poor weavers of Toad lañe made the place famous with their wheelbarrow-load of groceries. Today, the carriage of my lord of the army or navy drives up to a palace, aud his lordship actually buys hisownwines and cigars at the army and navy or civil service stores ; and every mechanic, miner, and laborer in the kingdom knows the way to the nearost co-operative store in his town or villago. The British shopman declaims loudly and bitterly against the co-operative store, and, at the same time, he adopts its healthy cash payments and sensible methods of doing business. Distributive co-operation be gan that the house-mother might have pure tea, that the father might wear good shoea, and that the childreu might have sweet milk and bread. To-day, it accomplishes this and more. It seeks to elévate and edúcate ; it opens reading-rooms and libraries, givos lectures in the arts and scieuces ; it organizes exeursions for children ; it has its social conferences and its congresses, and, withal, it makes nioney.
