(Special Cnrrcponilince.1
London, Aug. 25. London enjoys the
unonviiibloroputiitionof lieingthogiont,
nnd indeed I mny mid the only, tnnrhet
in tlio world for thu disposal of tdoleu
bonds, Hlmro cortilicntcs and scrip of
every description, Incredible though it
tuny nppetir, tho transactions in thi
ticntar class of plunder are carried on
with tliu utmost publicity and without
nny danger of interference on the pnit
of the English authorities, TliUritrnngo
immunity is duo to thu peculiar and
fortunately uulinio regulations of the
London Stock exchange and to the Eng
lish law on the HUbject of ntolen wrlp.
which permits a thief to glvo u good ami
legal title to bonds' which Jiujiiai'ub:
tnincd by crime, and to tho owiiu'rJhlp
of which ho has therefore no legal title
himself. According to this statute, tho
stolen bonds can bo ecov6rod bylhe po
lice only if tho actual thief is captured
with thoui in Ids ikwhoshIou. Hut trout
tho moment that ho has transferred
them to any third party, then recovery
by law becomes impossible.
Few people wtvotho police, the haul:
robbers mm the members of tho Loudon
Stock exchange are aware of these facts.
But it seems to me that tho matter Hhoulil
bo made more widely known, in trlcr
that public pressuro from every qututor
of tho civilized world may be brought to
bear upon tho Uritish government with
the object of Inducing the latter to amend
its laws in accordance with the dictates
of commercial honor and probity.
It was but last year that a British
court of justico, presided over by the lord
chief justice of England, utlirmcd once
more the existence of this extraordinary
law, according to which stolen bonds
constitute a valid exchaugo and a no
gotiablo instrument on the London
stock market. They remain so oven if
qualified by a public notification f es
toppel by tho government or concern
'which has originally issued them. Ac
cording to tho sworn testimony of the
president of tho London Stock exchange,
civen duriug the courso of the trial in
question, it is beyond tho power of that
institution to take cognizance of any es
toppel of a bond.
If the latter is genuine that is, not a
forgery and if it i.-" not nominal, but
negotiable by transfer to bearer, the
London Stock exchange does not cor.
eider itself to be at liberty to step into
the place of the issuing government o:
concern nnd to alter its character. It
does not even consider it to bo necessary
that thu vender of n stolen and stopped
bond should inform tho purchaser of its
true character. Nor has tho party who.
having given an order to a broker for
tho purchase of bonds, receives erip
which has been Htolen and stopped any
legal right torofuso delivery thereof.
It is easy to understand that with
ethics sucli as these prevailing in tho
greatest commercial center of tho uni
verse, and tolerated by tho law of tho
land, a new und powerful impetus
bus been given to tho profession of bond
robbery. In former days, before tho L'i it
ish tribunals had affirmed this state of af
fairs, bank burglars never stole any thing
in tho nature of bonds, securities, stock"
and Bhares. They were deterred by tho
difficulty of disposing of them, and re
garded them not only as useless, bill
oven as dangerous, Their entire atten
tion was devoted to tho specie .and bank
notes. Nowadays, however, tho bank bur
glar makes a point of carrying off every
scrap of paper on which ho is able to lay
hands, nnd tho entire package is at ouc
convoyed to London either by tho thieves
themselves or else by tho resident agents
of tho London dealers in "rogue bonds,"
as stolen paper is denominated in Thread
needlo street.
These agents are stationed in almost
every important city of tho continent or
Europo and of' America, At Paris they
mostly haunt tho.cufcs In tho neighbor
hood of thu Elyseb Montmartre. In
New York they frequent certain well
known purlieus of Fulton street. The
London principals, for whom thoy act
and in whoso employ thoy all Btand, are
' .either outside that it, curbstouo brok
.ere, iuoney changers 'or lawyers. Many
of tho latter affect to belong to tho old
school of family solicitors, wear white
cravats, swallowtail coats, and transact
their business in stolen bonds with
much unction ami outward semblance
of respectability. Ono of them is known
to have had as much as $200,000 worti
of stolon bonds pass through Ills hand-
last year duriug the space f one month
Whenover any bond robbery take
placo nowadays and they have euor
mously increased iu number and im
portance of late the victims of the
theft and the police commence by de
voting all their energies toward pre
venting tho stolen scrip from leaving
the country und from reaching Loudon.
Failing this they endeavor to arrest the
actual thief with the plunder in his pos
session before he has had time to dis
pose of it to his dealer. There uro
thieves who have been captured, to
gether with their booty, while in the uct
-of entering tho door of the dealer. Were
-tho police to have awaited for them to
r niergo before making the arrest they
would have been unable to recover the
stolen property, for from the moment
that it has been transferred by tho
u thieves to a third party it is placed be
yond the reach of the law and the
So thoroughly do the latter realize
this that, from the very instant that
thoy have acquired the conviction that
the stolen scrip has been conveyed to
London, they at once advise the victim
to abandon all further attempts to re
cover his vanished proerty by legal
process. They assert that it would only
- involve an entirely useless outlay of
- money without the slightest chauce of
luccess. Iustead they counsel the vic
tims to come to terms with the English
receiver of their stolen stocks. "Nego
tiate with tho persons to whom tho
thieves havo transferred your scrip,"
advise tho police; "that Is your only
chanco of recovery."
This somewhat startling udvicoon tho
part of tho police Is almost invariably
followed, and tho police even go so far
as to give the victim tho names of sev
eral solicitors or lawyers in. .Loudon
who, if they have not tho stolen prop
erty iu their possession, at least know
wheie it is and aro acquainted with tho
character of tho negotiations to bo
adopted for its restitution. Nor Is it
necessary to apply to tho police for thu
names of these London dealers in regno
bunds. At Vienna, at Paris and at Ber
lin the names of these agents ilguro
openly in tho official postoflleo directory,
with the remark that their bureaus ate
organlzcdjor the "search anil recovery
of stolen 'scrip." They aro .invariably
ready in return for a fee proportionate
to tho amount of tho robboryjto ilnd nut
thu terms on which their principal, thu
London dealer, is prepared to restitute
tho Molejijproperly.T
Theso'ternis' nroj nearly always thu
same. They consist of half tho face
value of tho stolen bonds. Thus when
M. Burat, tho well known Paris agent
do change or stockbroker, was robbed
some years ago of fcl.'O.OOO worth of
bonds, ho was compelled to pay $7.i,l)0tl
to a Loudon firm of lawyers in order to
recover thu possession of .tho scrip.
Ilu complained bitterly to tho French
and to thu Loudon police. But thu lat
ter declared that, according to tho terms
of tho law and to tho rulo of thu Stock
exchange, they were powerless to Inter
fere, and that they were forced to re
gard the olTer made to M. Burat as a
mero commercial transaction to bo ac
cepted or to bo lofuscd. Allard, the
banker of the Placo de la Bourse at
Paris, was obliged to ransom $'.'0,00(1
worth of scrip which had been stolen
from him bv a navinent of S10.000 to a I
London broker, llodriguez, tho money '
clu. tiger of thu lluo do la Paix, where t-o
many American tourists get their mouev
changed, was obliged to jmy $10,000 for
tho recovery of $80,000 worth of bonds
of which ho had been robbed, and I
could cite any number of other cases ot
the same kind.
Tho largo harvest reaped by thee
London dealers in stolon bonds during
tho last decade, and thu ease with which
they havo obtained thu sums demanded
for tho restitution of tho scrip, and thu
legal immunity which they have en
joyed, have contributed to enormously
increase tho number of bond robbers all
over tho civilized world. Thefts of tb'
character havo becomo moro frequent,
more extensive and moro considerable
than formerly, and tho condition of af
fairs has become so serious that Get
many, Austria, Franco and Italy are
about to bring dlplomatio pressure upon
Great Britain, with the object of induc
ing her to modify tho laws which have
converted Loudon into the greatest mar
ket in the world for stolen bonds.

(Slioolnl Correspondence
Hunt's Point, N. Y., Sept. 1. In a
queer little graveyard on a small island
surrounded by salt marsh, near the
mouth of thu Bronx river, stands the
neat monument and tomb of Joseph
Rodman Drake, tho brilliant young
poet whom death cut oil untimely ai
tho early ago of twenty-five. Past the
burial placo tho road leads over to tho
jMViit. Hero tho Bronx broadens into a
Day on tho sound, and assumes a rela
tivo importance that dimly justifies tho
blunder of George III, who thought his
warships might ascend the Htream and
drivo Washington from White Plains.
To tho cast and northeast thu marshes
stretch away, bro'jen by a few clumps
of trees nnd rocks or diversified by
stacks of salt hay. Through tho dull
grass ono can trace tho sinuous course
of tho littlu river.
Near tho mouth of tho river which he
has celobrated in song young Drake
passed many of his happiest hours, and
in fstrolls aniong woods and meadows
acquired that minute knowledgoof bird,
insect and plant which ho used so skill
fully in his "Culprit Fay." This mas
terpieco was produced to prove his as
sertion, made in opposition to the argu
ments of Cooper and Halleck, that
American rivers needed no storied leg
ends or traditions to make them suscep
tiblo of pootic treatment. Not n histor
ical, legendary or mythological allusion
occurs in tho moro than 000 lines of tho
dainty poem, which bears tho high im
personality of puro art.
Drake's tomb was until last summer
in neglected shupo and almost choked
with' a thick undergrowth. It was at
that time "restored" by a literary club.
Tho lettering stunds out clearly now
and the marble has been scoured into
cleanliness. Tho monument is about
eight feet high, ending in a tapering
column. On ono of tho panels of the
pedestal is tho inscription, "Sacred to
the memory of Joseph R. Drako, M. D.,
who died Sept. 31, 1620, aged twenty
tivo years," followed by tho couplet
from Halleck's beautiful memorial poem:
Kodo knew htm but to love htm,
Nouo utmed him but to lrale.
A pointed iron fence surrounds the
monument. By its side stands an aged
willow, partly dead. For company tho
small buriul knoll contains tho tombs of
the pioneer Thomas Hunt and numer
ous descendants; also of the Willets ui.d
Bartowi, old colonial families.
' As the inscription reminds us, Drake
was a physician by profession, though
he scarcely entered upon active prac
tice. His marriago relieved his strait
ened finances, and a happy year was
spent in Eurotiean travel. When the
poet returned consumption had set her
doom upon hint and he soon wasted
away. One child, a daughter, was born
to him, and she collected and published
her father's poems iu 1845. Mrs. Rich
ard Watson Gilder is a granddaughter
of the poet. Tho strong friendship of
Fiti-Greeno Halleck for Drake and
their joint authorship of the "Croaker'
epistles deserves more than thi pusbiui;
mention. Albekt J. Pottuk.

New YoitK, Sept. I, Yesterday there
camo to see mu onu of my young friends,
a beautiful girl In all thu sweet loveli

I remember my gown. It was of
printed muslin, and had four skirts,
each a little shorter than tho other ami
all of them very full. 1 had a wait-t
of white silk, cut low iu thu neck that
is to say, siiuaro across, leaving the
shoulders bare. Tho sleeves wero putted
and reached nearly to the elbow. The
waist of that dress measured around
outside only eighteen inches, and I can
remember to this day tho agony I suf

besciged mo when I saw other girls

To keep thu skirt out nicely wo ued
to wear many white petticoats, starched

not considered enough to give tho proper
"float." Tho skirt was just thu same
length front and back, and that made it
necessary to hold up tho front from fear
of tripping over it.
My hair was turned off tho face and
rolled over "rats" of curled hair, ami
then made into a knot at tho back, and
I had two rosettes made of pink ribbon
nnd black velvet, with long cuds fas
tened each side tho knot. I wore "gai
ters" of drab prunella, laced up tho side,
without heels and reaching to just above
tho ankle bono, and I had black silk
mitts on my bauds. When I went out
I had a "flat" hat with a wide brim and
a fall of "blond" lace around it, and a
lino ribbon fastened nt the crown called
a "bridle," and this could bo shifted
about so ns to hold the hat brim down
against tho wind.
After that era camo hoops; they went
out, and skirts reaching scarcely to the
