Liui king of tuo market for bo long. Ills hand

speculation iu clipping from Li4 grasp. Dur
ing tLo past few mouths be has befn on-leavor-lbir
to realize as iuietlir but a proinptly as

Western I'uion, and now bitterly rwroU that
Lo tLrew Limself into it H'l rouklessly. for ho
realize that whatever may bo done with rail
rosd it irt an impossibility to koep mo
nopoly of tho telegraph.
Ifpit theno dinicultics of disposing of hi!
securities for hard ca.h at anvthiue lika a
rtanoiialjlo price, Mr. Ooull is still as intent as
ever uvnn Lis ti ll) round tho world. Ou th 3
one tide is money aud the otfier Lis lifo. Provi
dence jJ.itb the LigLwf.yruan.
Therefore, amid all Li cares ami won iee,
seldom a week passe that either himself or Lis
sou Gtorgo does not to tho tshipyard of
Messrs. Cramp A Sons, ou tLe Delaware, near
PLiiadlpLia, to see Low tLe stoim yacht Ata-
lanta progresses. As Loth of tiioru will Hjiond
in this voseel the Le.st part of two years of
tLelr lives, they naturally fool tLo deepest in
terest in following Ler construction.
Truth to sav sLo will bo a noble boat Sho
will resemble a full-rigged ocean steamer. In
deed, tbere were many ocean steamers twouty
years ago that did not equal Lor iu tonnage.
while eho surpasses any of them to-day in
beauty an J perfection of finish. Fancy a pri
vate steam yaeLt that measures 25 feat over
all and i. Leaui of forty feet, and wLich regis
ters 1,000 tons. There will be nothing peculiar
in her build excepting tLo absolute perfection
with whieL she is constructed throughout Her
depth will bo fourteen feet with a draught of
eleven feet, so as to enable ber to euter any
harbor that is worthy of tha oamo at all tides.
TLe excessive length compared with depth can
only be accounted for on this hypothesis. She
would bo next to useless for any other parpoae
than pleasure, especially when we consider
that she will be given a double set engines of
1,000 horse power eaob, Should one get set out
of order the other may bo used a useful pre
caution in the comparatively barbaric latitudes
which Mr. Gould will visit, whore means of re
pair are not at band, -tmt to guara against
any such eventuality tho stokers and engineers
will be skilled machinists, aud a double set of
every bolt aud every piece or ine machinery
vrill be placed aboard, so that in case of auy-
thing fcoiug wrong a couplo of day of dry
dockiug cau repair alL
Abe interior arrangements win ua raost
sumptuous. Tb saloon will bo the luaia
room, of course, and will stretch tho entire
width or tbe vessel, .nr. uou:u s cauin win,
however, bo almost as large, and beside it will
te that of Lis favorite sou. TLe stnterooms
will be furnished in maLof?any, and the -style
wifl be Oueen Anne. Iu every cabin besides a
full-steed bedstead, there will be a Bilk swing
ing hammock as some sjrt of a preventive
against sea eiekness. TLe furniture will be
elaborate and nob, and will be secured to the
iron floors, which w;ill ba al! covered with l'er
siau rugs. Bath-rooms, electric bells, all that
va dans dire.
TLe probability is that Mrs. Oouiu will but
eo on tLia trip. SLo feels it to be bedt that she
should remain Lere to look after the other
children. WLeu the yacht reaches Europe she
will probablv join the party aud make the re
mainder of "the voyago with them. But she
does not fancy tLa mote hazardous portion of
the trip at ailj and Mr. (iould has deterred to
Who the invited guests will Le has Dot been
decided npoa But it is quite certain that they
will not number more than sis or eight. Tho
gentlemen whom Mr. Uould has hinted a trip
to are aT-ii arently averse to it uot becauuo
thoy would not like just such a trip, but be
cause they cannot spare so large a portion of
thir time to make it. Mr. Ituasell dage and
Mr. Washington E. Connor Lave both been
asked. TLe first declines because Le does not
care to leave his family, aud the other becau9
he cannot leave his business. Mr. Morosmi,
Mr. Gould's private and particular henchman,
wiil go. Beyond hini . nothing has been de
cided upon. Mr. Gould wants peace aud quiet,
so that Lo will mako no promiscuous selection.
Several well-known journalists have applied
to be permitted to go, with au idea of becom
ing the chroniclers of tho voyage, but Mr.
Gould Las decided uot to take any such indis
The provisions will naturally be plentiful. A
special ice room has been constructed ou board
iu which are a half dozen roil' iterators. One
will contain meats, another game, another fish,
a fourth wine, a firth liquors, and the sixth will
contain whatever cau be obtained most readily
at the porta visited. Besides this there will be
a cellar containing champagnes, Burgundies,
clarets, Sauternes aud malt beverages, besides
every known sort of spirit and cordial. But
no approximate idea cau be reached of tho
quantities of eaob. This department Las been
intrusted to Mr. George Gould. Mr. Gould's
private cbef will accompany, besides an ordi
uary English oook, who will be employed on
plain diahos which Mr. Gould most aC'ectiou
ates. Tha cost of tho trip is an item which Mr.
Gould has iuquired into particularly. He cal
culates that he will eava money by it, for it
will cut oil most of tho peruoual expenses to
wjich he is subjected here. The ordinary
cost of runuintr the vessel, including
Tooal, will bo iu the neighborhood of 34do aday.
Hut ttus is not excessive, conaiuering uiai wita
crew, ofiicers, engineers, cooks, stewards,
servants and guests there will be some seventy
five people aboard. In addition must be
calculated the original investment for the ves
sel, which wUl be about $100,000. But con
aiderintht Mr. Gould calculates that he saves
7,000 a week by making the trip he 13 still in
the position of waking a profit. Ou this basis
the two years' trip a round the world will foot
up to $&S,C00 after all, a mere bagatelle to
a thirty time9' millionaire.
T -e precise direction of the trip Laa net ytt
been fully decided upon. The first idea was to
visit Europe, taking England, trance, and
Italy en routs, but tbis has been pretty well
abandoned. Mr. Gould's phvsician, who will
accompany him, has prescribed absolute rest
from any sort of excitement, aud this can best
be obtained at the start by going to the too
least frequented spots. Ono ' of Mr. Gould's
wishes, however, is as far as possible not to
remain away from communication with Amer
ica for more than .two weeks at a time. This
he can hardly succeed in doing. But the ves
sel will have an electrician on board, with -two
telegraph operators, who can work a private
cipher. With these Mr. Gould can always
operate upon the ocean cables,- particularly as
instructions have already gone forth to every
part of the world in which there is means of
telegraphic transmission to give him every fa
cility. - I
from .New lort, wnenee tuo Ataianta wui
call about June 1, the party will eo direct to
Havana,. remaining only a 'day. TLeu cutting
about the Wee: India Isles she will make, her
way to tLe mouth of the Amazon, probably "go
ing" np tho course of that great stream a couple
of hundred miles. Then descendiug again and
paying a visit to the Orinoco," the yacht' will
eleam on to Para, and thence toliio de Janeiro
where a week or more will be parsed. Passing
down the coast of South America, both Enano
Ayres and Montevideo will bo visited and Ihon
down to tho Straits of Magellan. Thonco up
the western eo.it of South America to Santiago
de CbilLCallao, and a possible atop at Lima, if
tho country is quiet i Leu to Tauama, Mazat
lan and perhaps an inland trip to -the City of
Mexico. Thoiica back to tJao DLego, tha ter
minus of the Southern Pacific, where the
yacht will meet them. San Francisco wiil only
be visited in case Mr. Gould's presrneo should
bj necessary in the United State. -If not,
straight over tq Honolulu, where King Kala
kaua will extend a special welcome to the
Earty. Theuco to tLe Fiji Islands, New Zea
ind and Atxstralia. - A 6tay of. some duration
will be made in Melbourne aud Sydney. Lea
that is done with a bee-line will bo made for
Japan and subsequently China. After visitin
Canton, lions Kon?,.- auu later l eiiang anu
Biam. the vacht will make for India. There
no doubt a month will b spent Thenoe

of Suez, visiting Egypt, then over to Co tin tan ti
nople aud tho Grecisu archipo!ag-. Up tho
Adriatic to Venice, where the party will leave
the yacht to rejoin them at Naples. They will
visit Italy and possibly Austria and Germany.
If so the-yacht will 'joiu them, perhaps at
Genoa, perhaps at London. But from N enloo
no decidod route Is mado.
TLe trip from New York to Venice will take
one year and a month. The remainder of the
time will be spent In Europe, but of this no
programme has bee A made out, for Lere some
of Mr. Gould's cueta will leave him. or rather
J he will leave them, putting the ysuht at tbx:r

COUNTING A BILLION DOLLARS;

New YoiL Sun. -
At the treasury'departinabttLesuinof bionoy
now being counted confounds tbe imagination.
Senator Joe Brown Baid laet winter to a friend

Counted dollar by dollar, eveu at the rsto of
'.'00 a minuto, day aud nigLt, without stopping,
it would take ten yars to count it
l'ortuuatoly for tLo sore lingers of tho lady
counters, tLe money is uot all, or inaiulv, iu
one dollar bills; and again, iu tbis work, as in
Others, many Lands mako light work.
Tho total volume of money falls into three
main divisions. There is first what is called
tho cash in the treasurv. This was in round
nurnbei-H, ou tho first of this mouth, SOti.O'
0m. There is next the surplus reserve fund,
that is, the supply of treasury notes roeoived
from the bureau of printing and engraving.
and held to furnish banks aud sub-treasnrie
on demand. This money lies ready for deliv
ery in tho custody of the treasury, but it is uot
include I la the assets or the omce. it is esti
mated that there are between S200,00(),u0 and
sjoo.OotUiOO of this money locked in the treas
ury vaults. Finally, there are the bonds held
bv the treasury to secure tbe circulation of tLe
national banks to an amount of $40UKR.0Ui
Altogether, therefore, there is a plump billion
of money to be handled.
The method of working la simple. The paper
money lies in neatly wrappod piles in tho vaults
with the amount of each pile stated. The band
is removed and the money given to a counter.
who. with do ft Augers, finds the sum and re
ports the result A strict watch is kept to pre
vont bills slipping uu sleeves or under aprons.
If the report of the counter agrees with tho
record tbe band is put back aud au entry made,
and it would greatly astonish the committee,
no doubt, if a diifereuce were to be found and
to ba proven ou a second and more careful
count Probablv no such incident will disturb

impossibility, aud no one hints that the vaults

It will be comparatively eaay and pleasant
to count the smooth, clean packages of bills,
butwhen it comes to the broken piles of muti

have a disagreeable tim of it The custom of
the treasury is not to destroy returned notes
cf a national bank until they amount to 900a
or multiples thereof, aud mutilated bills are
sorted and preserved until this unit of destruc
tion is reached. Hence, as there are about
2,000 national banks, each having its little
pile of greasy and torn bills, this feature of
the count Will be a tedious and disagreeable

Lim on Fort street," walked up to Lim and an
nounced that Lo Lad come all the way froir
Girard to lick him, and accordingly he started
in. In a few minutes ho had blackened both
the man's jes, walked over him and reduced
him to a general wfeck. When he had finished
the job he stood the man tip against the wall
of the Pionteer store and remarked:

Yi itn mingled amazement aud dobgbt we
learn from Tho Marysville Appeal "that Tom
i Clyma, of North Butte," ha raptured by mau
v, a, ureci IIMI C KVKhLlWU oi mat reujB.tss.uiv
animal, long supposed to bo extinct, known a
tho gyascutus." We obsorvo it strong like
ness In tLe gyascutus' captured by "Toiu
Clyma" to tho gyascutus of onr youth a L ap
peared in tLe scrap-book of the period. That
gyascutus was advertised in a western town by
two middle-aged scientific persons as an ani
mal of great strength and extreme ferocity,
long supposed to be extinct aud believod now
to bo the only specimen of Lis kind in exist
ence, which would be on exhibition in the
local temple of tLe muses on a certain even
ing named; admittance twenty-five
cents; curtain to rise at eight On tLe
evening appointed a largo and intelligent
audience of tLe first citizens was
early in attendance, and tLo heart of the enter
prising scientist at the door was gladdened Ly
tbe chink of many shekels. Tho audience
having been fairly hived, and iu a state of en
thusiastic expectancy, just at the moment ap
pointed for the rising of the eurtaiu there was
tho noise of a great roaring and confusion 1
Lind Lo scenes, w Lish was followed Ly tLo
appearance of scientist number two, dishev
elled and wild. "Save yourselves ladies aud
gentlemen!" ho cried; "the gyascutus is loose!"
Then there was what tLe late Lord Byron fine
ly described as "Lurry Ing to aud fro," though
rather more of tLo "fro," tLan tLe "to," and
tLey wero "first citizens" wLo reacLed the side
walk first Every citizen saved Limself en
tirely wLole, barring tLe 25 cents paid the
scientist at tho door. TLe two scientist also
saved tLemselvcs, as was generally believed,
by taking to the adjacent timber. Scientific
circles in tLat towu were agitated for two
months afterward over the question whether
the gyascutus got away with the scientists or
the scientists got away with the gyascutus.
Only ons thing was certain; tLat sotueLow the
three together got away with two or three
hundred twenty-fivejeent pieces.
We have said that we observed a strong like
ness iu "Tom ClymaV gyascutus to the gyas
outus which got away from the exhibition. The
resemblance has in the circumstance that no
one ever saw the earlier gyascutus. In saying
this we have no desire to impeach either the
veracity of "Tom Clyma" or the intelligence of
the Marysville Appeal. On the contrary, we
are quite inclined to accept the narrative with
out any salt whatever, and to hail "Tom Cly
ma's" gyascutus as not only tLe grascutus of
science, but the veritable gyascutus that got
away. And just here it occurs 10 us that the
legal heirs of tho first citizens above referred
to have the right to demand of "Tom Clyma"
that the gyascutus be opened and search made
for the remains of the missing scientists and
tho receipts of the box office on the evening in
question. We leave for the courts to decide
whether if the remains and the receipts be
found the heirs are entitled to interest on the
investment. TLe Marysville Appeal gives, in
tlie interests of .science,- a lull description
of tho animal. .The most singular thing
about the quadruped," - it says, "is that
the legs on one side of its .body are
several ' inches- shorter than . those on tho
other side." It goes on toay that it is never
found except in Lilly regions, its peculiar struc
ture unfitting it for a level country. . It is pe
culiarly adapted for Lilly regions, as: it can
walk withoase on the side- of a steep eioo,
where even a goat would have a precarious
foothojd. This is not ail an advantage,. hw- '
ever, ns although it can travel around a hill
from right to left with groat speed and the ut
most ease, if it ever turns to go tho other way
it lops over aud rolls helpless-ly to the bottom.
It is stated that "Luntcrs of the gvaHcutus,
whose fur is held in high esteem, used to avail'
themselves of this fact to capture the animal"
by adopting "the artifice of traveling' around
tho hill in a direiion contrary to that pursued
by tLe animal," and so meeting Lim face to
facA Tho source of this information is not
given, nor ao we discover whether it was tbe
fur of the hunters of the crascutus or of the"
gyascutus himself which was. held in high es
teem; but we see no reason to doubt the fact
that the gyasoutus or gyasc-uti were hunted in
that wuv. i bat would do our way.
And th:t indeed is precisely the way in
whieL a MassawLusetts hunter "mucL better
knowu than "Tom Clvma " finally captured
the political grasfutna of that state; au ani
mal not s-o rare as tho one above described,
and w.Jiich is not yet extinct, Xhougb it is hoped
it soon will be. ." This Lunter puisiied the
Massachusetts svascutUH from behind for a
long tiijie without euecess. At length the
eariv Lr.nter'a aintiee occurred to Lim. and Lo
sat down and' waited for the gyascutus tocomo
round. When at last thev came face to faca
the gyascutus, with the instinct of self preser
vation, naturally turned the other way. Tho
hunter mounted him for he held his fur in
high esteem and the result ensued which
might have been expocted hunter and gvas
cntus went rolling down tho slope together.
The hunt is not yet over. There aro clouds of
dust on the mountain side, and occasionally
the mingled shout of the hunter and the howl
of the gyascutus issue Trom them. No one
can tell at tho precent moment whether tho
hunter will suoeeed in taking the pelt of the
gyascutus or whether there will be any fur
left on it when he gets it; but the general be
lief is that it is all up with the gyascutus.
Upon tho whole we think "Tom Ciyma's
animal was a genuhio gyascutus.
How to Answer "Masher' " Xote.
There lives in St. Louis a very sensible old
Gorman named Mullor, who keops a store.
ne has a daughter named Mi 11 a. Not long
ago sLo attracted the attention of one of those
unfortunate creatures called "mashers, so
called because their noses need mashing abont
ten times a day. Ke found out where sts
ived, and next day an unkempt urchin brought
Miss Mullsr a personal note, marked "strictly
confidential." The contents of tho note wore
to the effect that he loved her for herself alone.
The following postscript was added:
