When Grant becomes King Ulysses
I, by the grace of ? it will seem funny
to pick up the court journal (the New
York Herald) and read: King Ulysses
drove out this afternoon, accompauied
by Count Zichariah Cdandier, Lord
Bibcock and the Hon. Miss Gail Ham-
ilton. Duke Casey and Biron Orvil
spent the afternoon at the palace and
dined with his majesty. The royal
family were all present, also Count
Schenck. In the evening Lis majesty
gave his second grand lawn party. The
Iioyal Little Rock band, under the
leadership of Sir Jim Blaine, 13. F.,
discoursed fine classical music, includ-
ing "Johnny Morgan" and *' Pause,
Emily." The guests were received at
the palace by the Hon. M;ss Agnes
Jenks and L*dy Eliz* Pinkston.
Among the distingu'shed personages
who graced the occasion by their pre-
sence were II. R H Prince Secor; II.
R. H Prince Belknap; the Right. Hon.
Grandfather Taft, lv C.; Lord Shep-
herd; Count Jacob Rehm; Duke De
Golyer Garfield: Very Rev. Parson
Newman; Lord JLandaulet Williams;
tie Richt Hon. JamebGordon Bennett,
C P. P., and the royal family and nu-
merous others. [Boston Post.
During the eclipse the Pueblo In-
dians of Taes. N. M , were much agi-
tated. The chieftain of the village
came forth in great excitement and de-
clared that some one had committed a
* great sin and the destruction of the vil-
lage was immiceat—or, at. least, the ex-
tinction of the sun. Three trusted
rLe.-sengers were therefore sent at once
to the priests to conjure them to keep
the eternal fire on the altar burning at
its brightest, while all the women of
the village were ordered to strip them-
selves naked and run in pairs around
Jhe racecourse where the footraces
place. Thanks to these simple pre-
cautions the ellipse 50011 passed off.
The custom of lisviDg tne Vomen run
these races in a nude state is universal
with the Pueblos on occasions of this
kind. They have a tradition that Mon-
tezuma was betrayed into the hands of
ttys Spaniards by his daughter, and it is
Uiojgiit probablp that the requiring of
females to humiliate themselves as
penance f°r the original crime commit-
ted by one of i^Clr sex against this dig-
nitary grows out of the tiuCfjtiPp,
The Philadelphia Times, speaking of
the action of the Texas Greenbackers,
says: The Greenbackers of Texas are
holding themselves down with great
calmness. In making a platform re-
cently they only demanded the issue of
$2,000,000,000 in paper money, when it
would have been just as easy to demanu
sixty times as much. Then think what
flush times we'd have!

POUT OF tfALVESTON.
Nkws Office, Monday Evening, Aug. 26 —
Business in alj departments has been satisfac-
tory to day. The shipments would have been
more liberal had the steamship City of San
Antonio not been delayed in getting to her
wharf. The weather Las been too rainy,
however, for the outdoor handling of goods
that would suffer from a slight moistening.
Orders continue to come in from all sec
tious of the state and stocks being in better
shape, there is now less delay in completing
In the hide market a very steady feeling
prevails, but business has been limited by the
In the general market an easy range of
prices for hog products has been noticeable,
but no modification of quotations caa be
made. The coffee market is very firm. It is
as yet undecided what shall be done with the
Christine Elizabeth and her cargo. It trans-
pired to day that, if not allowed to land her
cargo, she may proceed to New York instead
of going to either New Orleans or Mobile.
The News special from New York to-day
says that it is probable that a compromise
has been agreed upon between the Central
and the International railroids, and adds that
the rates are to go into effect on the 1st
Steam freights to New York, and to other
ports via New York, were revised to day, the
advance to take effect on the freight tasen
by the next New York steamer that arrives.
Exchange declined to-day, and rates on
domestic bills were marked down Com-
mercial sight on New York is now quoted at
Yx discount. Offerings have been more liberal
since the movement of the new crop began.
In the cotton market there was a fair de-
mand at unchanged prices, the market clos-
ing steady despite the advance in freights
and the decline in exchange. Advices at the
close were not favorable, but in the New
York market August deliveries were held up
and closed at 12.01^12.02. Other months de
clined. Spinners bought freely of spot. The
Liverpool market for spot also remained firm.
No telegrams were received from Providence
or Fall River, out these will probably come
to-morrow, when the Manchester semi-weekly
advices will also be due.
There -was a fair demand to-day, and sales
reached 333 bales, taken at unchanged quota
tions, the market at the close being officially
Liverpool was firm during the day, but
closed easier for arrivals. Futures closed 4
to 6 points lower for all months but August.
whicn is held up at 12.01 to 12.02. New Orleans
is reported as firm.
