With tbo nld of that scrip debtors
could swindle their creditors out of

of paying them oil with tills worthless trash ,
and would retain the possession of tbo mort
gaged lands or goods. Hut since the povcrn-
inctit is to issue money whii'li Is wotth noth

will bo worth something ! And if c rod I tors
are to bo swindled out of all that is duo them ,
why make arrunpumoiits also for cheating
them out of a iiuartorl in spitoof its enor
mous pension appropriations , congress is
denounced for its failure to provide for old
soldiers nnd a demand is made for
service pensions and udditiomd legislation
for the soldiers. But If the monetary system
of thocounlry is upset us the result of Hooding
the United States with irredeemable shinplasters -
plasters , it will make no dllTeronco what is
done for the soldiers. Should each one bo
given a service pension of $10,000 a year , it
would ( to him no peed , for the money would
be worth nothing. Eight dollars in real

this port late yesterday nnd went to her pier
this morning.
As soon as the captain got ashore this

According to the story of Captain Dakar ,
the outbreak on board the vessel was tlio re

The Obdam loft this port on July 18 for Rot
terdam. She had on board upward of tbroo
hundred cabin and steerage passengers.
The craft wns forty-eight hours out from
port when the liramen and stokers mutinied
nnd nut out the tires. Captain Dakar bur
ried bolow. IIo found twenty of the tircmcn
and coal passers bunched together alongside
the furnaces. They had drawn the llro and
the vessel was simply holding her head to tbo
wind with the aid of n few sails.
"Wnnt Is tbo matter with you fellows ! "
said the captain.
A general howl from tlio men wns ttio an
"I'll tell you what the matter is , " said
Peter Duson , who appeared as the ring
leader. "Wo have grown tired of this life
and wo intend to run the endues to suit our

"Is that the expression of yourself , " in
quired Captain linker , "or are you acting as
spokesman for the others ? "
"I don't care wlnu tno other fellows do , "
said Duson. "I'm have
going to a good time
or know why. "
"All right. " said the cantaln , "you can ac
complish your purpose when you do away

"If that is so I'll do it now , " said Dusen ,
and picking up a huge iron pick ho sprang at
the captain.
Tlio latter drew back , pulled n navy re
volver from his pocket , aimed it at Duson
and lired. The man fell nt the captain's feet
with an oath. Ttio ball had entered his loft ,
breast nnd two hours b'ter ho died.
Tlio quickness and determination of the
captain filled the remainder of tlio mutineers
with alarm and they lied in every direction
about the furnace room.
The body of Duscn was hurled at sea.
Papers in hi.s bag showed him to have been

The killing of this man quelled the mutiny.
The tires wore relighted and the vessel pro

twenty miles north ot this city. According
to the lowest estimate u nunibur * s,0H ) moil.
It would bo nonror the exact tljjuro to say
10,000 men. They wore hrouKht down from
Cnldera on transports towoJ by throetugi
and four wawlilpj. The point of landing is
nbout liftccn mlles from Santiago , where
Halmnccda's ' forces to the number of 10,000
have been .stationed , ijulnloro bay Is the entrance -
trance to tlio fertile valley and is In ix duvet
line with Santaluo and Valparaiso.
Ilalmacoda has for some time anticipated
tbo movements on the south on the part of
his foes , but ho believed that Coiiulmbo
would bo the first place nttaciicd. It now
appears that the hovering of the Insur
gent licet In thu neighborhood ot Coquimbo
bay wns only n scheme to deceive Dainin-
ceda. Uy coming so hit-south the instii-ironus
leave the largo force of rialninceillsrs nlCo-
qlinbo , many miles north of thorn , and helpless -
loss to render any nld to the government '
army in this neighborhood.
The landing at Qulntero bay was , thoro-
lore , a complete surprise to the president ,
but ns soon as ho heard of the news ho acted
promptly. By his command a large force
was sent north lo meet the enemy.
Admiral llrown , from Ids flagship , the San
Francisco , saw the landing of the insurgents.
They are all well armed and enthusiastic.
Tno United States warship Haltimoro Is in
this harbor. The Ksinornhln , commanded bv
Sllvti I'alana , is Just outsldo the harbor. It
is oxpocled Unit she will bo Joined at once by
the other insurgent war vovsels Irom tjuln-
torobay. It looks as it , in conjunction with
the advance of the land forces upon this city ,
the lleot will oiicn llro upon i he forts that ,
defend this harbor. Valparaiso bay is
slrongly fortified. The forts mount forty
iruns , among which are n 10-Inch mu//lo-
loader , cloven Much and 0-inch breech
loaders , and llvo Ivrupi ) guns of 21-cuntlmo-
Ire calibre. The remainder are ilOU-poumlurs.
Most of those guns are masked and offer a
very small target for ships to llro at. Thu
gunners , are all sullied men , who huvo had
a great deal of practice. They know the dis
tances across the bay , as they have a run go
Under. The insurgent. Heel has altogether
some nineteen guns , including 10-inch , S-inch
and ( i-inoli breechloaders ,
So far it Is quiet there. It looks ns If the
most important campaign of the present waxx
is about to bo fought. Until the present ,
time it lias been nearly altogather a b.ittlu of
words. Now a Hnrro light is imminent. On
its result depends , in all likelihood , thu com
plete overthrow of Halmnccda or of htri
opponents. The rout of the piv.idont'.s
forces would undoubtedly bo quicxlv fol
lowed by the capture ot both Valparaiso und
Santiago by Iho victorious army of the In-
