They were carried down to-day by ,e heavy calling in of loans, large with drawals of deposits, the great shrinkage in values and the difficulty of obtaining money, even on its securities. Fiske A Hatch handed the following to an ^Asso ciated Press reporter this evening: “To our Depositors and other Creditors: It is with great sorrow that we are obliged to announce to you our suspension, which has been brought about by a combination of circumstances.

Even before the hour named for resumption the paying teller opened his window and the first man in line received his money. This individual was an old, weather-beaten man, who evidently drew out all his holdings, as tho pilo of green backs handed to him made a goodly show and were carefully stowed away in his in ner pockets, after many glances nt his neighbors, of whoso probity lie was evidently by no moans certain. At noon the number in lino was not over twenty-five, and was composed principally Of boys and clerks, some of whom only required a certification of checks. Only one lady was among tho list. She was attired in widow's woods. Her gratification on receiving her money was plainly written on her countenance. The sina i number of those drawing out their funds is regarded as very promising for the future of the bank.

It was the correspondent of tile Metropolitan Bank of New York and the announcement was made on account of the suspension of that bank. It was thought host to suspend temporarily. It is thought that the bank will resume in a day or two. A promise has been made to depositors that they will lie paid in full. There was a run on the other banks to day, bat the demands were mot promptly and the excitement was over by ribon. One of the banks on which there was a in received deposits exceeding the amount they paid out during the run. While the ruu was at its height in the First National Bank an express wagon drove up to the building, took out a safe, and its contents, $03,000, wero spread on the counter beside the paying teller. This restored confidence at once. Only one failure was announced on ’change to-day. and that was not important. The market was badly demoralized, but it la thought that the bottom has been reached and con fidence will be restored in a few days. Hilton A Waugh's failure had more effect on oil and bank affairs than the New York failures had. DOXXELL, LAWSOX A SIMFSOX. . Y'obk, M»y 15.—The following is from the New York Tribune ot Friday: The statement of members of Donnell, Law- son A .Simpson, on Wednesday, that the suspension wss due wholly to the suspen sion of the Metropolitan National Bank were not confirmed yesterday. Tho Metropolitan havibg resumed, similar ac tion on the part of the banking firm was anxiously awaited. Towards the close of banking hours it began to be whispered around that their failure would be total. The bonds of the Cleveland, Y’oungs- town and Pittshnrg road were mentioned as the matter in which they had been most crippled. This was the security over which the Bank of the Hepublic directors bail a difference about a month ago, which resulted in President Field’s resignation. Tho Bank of the Republic was one of two banks witli which Donnell, Lawson A Simpson had done business, Simpson being a director In it. It was also said that Seney had unloaded these bonds on tho firm, and their dependence on the Metroi>olitan Bank was such that they could not refuse to bo thus used. There wore over 490 banks for whom they transacted New York business scattered * through . Georgia, Florida. Texas, Missouri, Kan sas, Arkansas, Nebraska, Iowa, Colorado, U tali and other territories. Over 100 bul letins were posted on the door. Inside Messrs. Donnell and Simpson were all day trying to see where they stand. Mr. I.aw- son is in Europe. An attachce of the firm told a reporter that matters bad gone so far that a resumption would lie impossible. An offer from 8. B. Elkins to assist to tho amount of $290,000 was made ill good faith, and may load to tho re-es tablishment of the concern uuder a new name. AU the members of the firm are Missourians. ■ 10:90 a. x.—The street has settled down to work. There is an absenceof crowds in the vicinity of the exchange, and the street it no longer encumbered with masses of curiosity seekers, who only served to breed excitement and hinder the progress ot thou who had business on tho street. The visitors' galleries are still well filled, and the doormen are obliged to discrimi nate as to those admitted. A majority of these looking down on the brokers are elegantly dressed ladies.

New Y'ork Central is selling at 108, against 110 this morning, while Lake Shore is back to 83. Manager Camp, of the clearing bouse, says the banks are avail ing themselves more freely of the new cer- tlhcates. He would not he surprised if $1,000,000 were taken to-day. DOXXELL, LAWSOX A SIMFSOX, New York, May 18.—Donnell, Lawson* Simpson have assigned to their confiden tial clerk, It. H. Weems. The assignee said the firm bad been unable to make out a statements of its condition, and does not expect to have one ready for sometime. The assignment was made with a view to protecting everybody, both large and small, and was only determlued on when parties West began attaching the property of the concern. The firm this evening made the following announcement: “7o our Creditors—8ms: It is with great sorrow we are compelled to report our suspension, which has been brought about by a combination of circumstances over which we had no central. Ws can only request those having claims against us to extend such consideration and Indulgence as is possible, otherwise our assets may be sacrificed to the prejudice of all parties. As the best means of realizing from onr assets and securing our creditors, we have made an assignment of ail the assets of the firm and also the indi- claimed that the depositors will not lose, any way, more than 25 per cent.

WASHtxaTox, May 1(1.—Senator and ex- Bccretary of the Treasury Johr Sherman has been interviewed by a correspondent of the New Y'ork Tribune, to whom lie summed up the situation and suggested the proper course to pursue in the follow ing paragraph: “We are neither in a panic nor on the verge of it,” he tald, “unless my judgment is seriously at fault. The country is not in anything like the condi tion in which it was in 1873, when the financial crash of that year came. Our financial status is entirely different. The present troubles are local, not general. Reckless speculation, the creation of ficti tious values in stocks and the sharp com petition in railroad securities are the causes of the existing difficulties. It is ex tremely easy to create distrust in monetary circles. when there hu been such n fluctuating market, os in New York, for several months put. I look upon the present troubles as simply the result of over trading in securities that for a long time have been merely the foot ball of Wall street.' While there is busi ness depression, there is no real financial distress, and the resources of the country- arc ample and stable. It is not difficult to find a remedy for the present evils, if the pie would refrain from dealing in se ries or products which they do not hold or control.” JORX H. JAMES'S FAILURE. Atlaxta, May 18.—John H. James, banker, announuced yesterday that he would not open his doors to-day. He lias control of real estate to the amount of half a million dol lars, which he will offer for sale at once, and which will more than pay his liabili ties.

Even tbe young ladies gath er in crowds with eagerness to watch the proceedings, and doubtless their presence tends to hearten the poor man In his pre carious position. The entire day was con sumed in arguments by counsel. Foster and Twiggs, for the defense, acquitted themselves in a masterly style. Their words will probably echo in every soul present for years to come, and hare in duced much comment. General Gartrell and Major Gary represented the State with much tact and eloquence. Judge Roney charged the jury in an impartial way. Greer's aged mother sits by his side from morning till night. Her affection goes into the hearts of all like a knife. To see the wild, troubled, hopeless look on her brow, when with her anxious eyes she has pene trated the souls of all present, to hear her sudden, convulsive sobs, to mark the quick, pasaionate clasp of her hands, together and the bitter, despondent droop of her motherly face, brought many a sigh from the audience. The prevailing opin ion is that he will be acquitted. Up to 10 p. m. the jury were still deliberating over the matter. Lateb—The jury brought in a verdict at 10:30 of not guilty in the Greer case.

This morning McViUe lies in a solid bed ot ashes, not a single busineu house being left, except tho dry goods store of Harris * Hertz and the drug establbhment of Dr. H. C. Ryab.

The tables and everything in the room wu consumed. The grocery store and saloon of J. I. Kemp next succumbed. Still onward swept the angry flames, enveloping next the general store of T. A. McMillan * Co., ami pro ceeding until the entire block wu one solid mass of uhes. It b probable that it would have gone further hid there been more material on which to work; but between thb hlockaml tbe next intervenes considerable spaefi^: and it wu therefore Impossible for more destruction to be wrought. The fire b supposed to have boon the work of an incendiary. Thb b tho only nouible conjecture, u it b evident that Norfleet's store was first robbed and then fired.
