The feverish excitement manifested
for the first week after the election
his somewhat subsided, althoulgh the
6flicial has not yet been announirl.
The count in South Carolina reitilted
just as Republicans claimed, in favor
of HAYES., From the best indica
tions, Louisiana and_: Fioridi will
follow suit; and thus our Demoeittic
friends will be satisfied. In Louisi
ana the votes are . being counted in
presence of a committee from both
political parties from the North. We
have not the least. doubt that HATES
is fairly elected. All the news re
ceived since our last issue only tends
• ,
to increase our faith in such a result.
The following figures show the
votes actually cast in South Carolina.

as they desired; the majority for

Counsel for the Democratic can

tion to the aggregation on the
ground of irregularities,' errors and
omissions between the managers' re
turns and 'the statements of the
county canvassers, which they claim
vitiates the above result. The Su

RIE.-1.1011. WALTER H. LOWRIE, who
died at ~ Mead Ville, Tuesday of last
week, was born in Armstrong county,
in 1807 ;• was graduated from the
Western Cniversity at Pittsburg, in
1826, and admitted to the bar three
years later; When Judge GRIER was
promoted to the betich of the United
States Supreme Court, in 1846, Gov
ernor StitsK. appointed Mr. LOWRIE
Judge ot..the District Court of Alle
gheny county. Ile retained the, po
sition nutil:lBsl, *hen he was one
of the five first elected Judges Of the
Supreme COurt of Pennsylvania, and
obtained the twelve yearS' term, for
the last halt of which he was Chief
Justice. - He was doct4ol by
Washington College whilie-/-6n the
bench, and resumed. his profession at
the close of his term,' in 1863.' His

great respect for their learning and

receipts from other sources, such
as the fees for licenses for restau

—no inconsiderable i amount by the,

refunded. - The liabilities, after the
:payment of the current expenses,
consist of the capital stock, and the
_sum advanced by the United States
a loan, to be refunded if a suffi
cient surplus remained after paying
debts The question now to be de
cided is whether the United States
or the stockholders shall first be re
imbursed. Both cannot be. It is now
supposed. that there will bea._surpius
large enough to repay a million and
a half, but the stockholders insist
that their claim is entitled to the
preference. If this claim IS allowed,
the stockholders will get half their
money back, and the United States
will get none.
THE kind of dSughter to have is
the one whom WILLIAM BUTLER
DUNCAN, the ruined Xew York mer
chant, recently found out he had.
For two or three years, during the
summer months, drivers and eques
trians on the public thoroughfares of
Staten Island have met a young lady
equestrian, accompanied by an or
derly, whose elegant figure and su
perb horsemanship' elicited' general
admiration. She had had everything
from infancy that heart 'could wish,
and was supposed by those who
knew•iiothing to the contrary to be
a gay 'butterfly of fashion. But soon
after the,' suspension of her father's
firm, unbeknown to her family, she
undertook the translation of a work,
which was attracting not a little at
tention in : Germany. Secretly she
kept at her#sk, night and day.
When it was icompleted she went
alone to the largest publishers in the
e .
city, submit ad her manuscript for
,and a 'crew days later
made a contract foij the publication
of the volume. When the first copy
was printed she placed it in her fath
er's hands, and telling him what she
had done, expressed the hope that
she could contribute something
ward relieving hie financial trouble
The translation has proved a decided,

important , one—more important in
view of 'the fact that during' he past
two sessions scenes have transpired
disgraceful to any body of gentlemen,
and especially the law-making power
of a great commonwealth like Penn
sylvania. ,We intimated a few weeks
since that one of our own distingu
ished members; Hon. E. REED' MYER,'
would probably be called to. the
Speaker's chair. 'ln'ilSoking over the
names of the Members of the House,
we are more confident than ever that
our prediction will be verified. The
Speaker of the Senate will; without
doubt, be Mr. NEYV3IYER, of Alle
4heny, while'the Chief clerk of that
'body will more than likely be ex-
Senator DAVIS, of Philadelphia The
three strong Republican districts
will be represented, and it will not
be asking too much for the Republi
cans of the Northern tier for us to
insist upon the election of Mr. MYER
to the Spealtership. Hepossesses in
an eminentilegree every qualification
for the hotibrable and responsible:
pasition—a fine physic:pie, large ex.;
.perience, quick perception, and un
doubted integrity.' His election will
not be asked by the Republicans of
the North alone, but the best men of
tiae party all over the State are advo.
eating his claims. With such en
dorsement, and in view of •the fact
that no member of the. body will pus
s,:ssi all the qualifications combined
in Mr. Than, we have no doubt he
will be the unanimous nominee' of
the Republican_caucus. :
A correspondent of the Elmira
Adrerli ? _zer, writing upon this subject,
very truthfully says: *Full I returns
of • the election - of members!' of the
lower House of our Legislatdre have
not yet come to' hand. Doubtless
many prominent men may be found
lin the . list when perfected, 'but the.
honor belongs to the Republicans of
this county of having presented the
name of lion. E. I REEn 'MYER for the i
) Speakership of that body. The lower f.l

qualifications for that position than 1
Mr. Mvsa. His personal presence
and dignitynot of that haughty,

repulsive styl ~ but that which would
command res - wet .and obedience.
The sooty iron, onger,, the gentle
man, or the little child would natu

the presentation of hik name by his
friends meet •a favorable response, as
I trust it will, the term of ”bear gar
den" so , often applied to the Penn
sylvania Honie of Representatives
would have no significance under his
administration. . The Philadelphia
'delegation, which generally wields a
controlling influence in the make-up
' of the House, will undoubtedly be
friendly-. , His firmness and decision
in repudiating the: demands of ANDY
JOHNSON—when Surveyorbf the Pvrt
of Philadelphia—made him decidedly
popular in that city. With Mr MY Es
for Speaker,' and a corps of subordi
'nate officers such as can he readily
selected from the Republican party,
the legislation of the coming winter
will be such as to meet the approba
tion of the people. With the State
again in honest hands,"it Will be well 1
to note who are the 'reformers.'"
Jr so happens that every twenty
eight years, the 4th of March, the
day fixed for the
of the
President, falls on Sunday. This oc4 .
curs next year for the fourth time in
the history of Our nation, and fol
lowing the precedent established by
three of his' predecessors, the new
President will take the oath of office
on Monday, the sth of March.
The first inauguration on the sth
of March, was that of -George Wash
ington on entering upon his second
term. The next time the 4th, of
March fell upon Sunday was in 1821,
when James Monroe was the Presi
dent elect ,for the y second time, and
be, too, was inaugurated on Monday,
Afarhii sth., The third occurrence of
this kind was, in.,1849, when Zachary
Taylor Was inaugurated on Monday,
the sth of - March. After next year
inauguration day will not fall on
Sunday again until 1005..'
The fact that the next 4th of March
falls on Sunday is going to involve
some curious anomilies in our politi
cal history. It has been currently
reported, that one of them would
consist in elevating the President
Jiro tens of the Senate, and now act
ing Vice President, Mr. Ferry, to
the Presidency of the United States
for twenty T four hours. Further ex
amination,, however, shows that Mr.
Ferry's term as Senator from Michi-.
gan expires on the 3df March, so .
that he will be a private citizen the
next day, or, at least bi4t a - Senator
c-elect, but' not sworn in. It will
be necessary for the Senate, there- .
fore, which is, a permanent - body, to
elect a President pro tem to preside
until the regular. elected Vice Presi
dent of the - United States shall take
his place as presiding officer: The
choice will of course be made from
among those , Senators whose terms
continue beyond.lB77, and it in likely
to fall on either Senator Anthony of
Rhode Island, Edmunds of Vermont,
Hamlin of Maine, or Morton of In
diana. Whoeier he may be thus
designated, that Senator will be

to the discussion upon the drinking.
question; in this wise: . . . •
"The Episcopal Chcreh,: in
. .,its incessant discussion of mere
formulas, has in fact taken a firmer
grip on the actual obstacles to human
progress than many other'religious
bodies. it has virtually solved the
Indian problem, and brought the two
greitt,classes, the rich and the poor,
with their separate needs, together in
a new, practical, effective way. We
are not surprised, therefore, to. find
that they have taken up.boldly anoth
er unsolved riddle—intemperance—
to try What they can do with it Re
form bodies usually give this matter
the go-by. Even the prison reform
ers, when they talk of prevention of
crime, simply state. the fact that two-.
thirds• of the inmates of our jails,
penitentiaries, and almshouses are
sent there directly or indirectly, by'
liquor, and there drop the 'subject'
Physicians acknowledge that the ma
jority of cases of insanity, epilepsy,,
and all nervous diseases, arise from
the inherited effects of alcoholism,

other' reasons, thb American, is less
able to bear thei effects of liquor than.
the European Now how do our
Episcopalian friends propose to meet
this very live Satan ? ' One earnest
speaker recommends its punishment
a.s,a crime, forgetting that the pun
ishment of drunkenness already falls
heaviest on 'the drunkard. Nine out
of ten victims would free themselves
from its.deadly hold if it were possi
ble. A man who is -not daunted by
the debasement of - soul and body,
the loss or fortune, friends, and life,
is not, likely :to be deterred by the
terrors Of the law. Another reformer
declared total abstinence to be the
only cure for- drunkenness, which is
.a self-evident'axiom; but hardly per
tinent to the difficulty, which is, How ,
to deter men from drinking? How
keep the young lad, the tired me
chanic, froin the temptation of the
i grog-shop ?' .i..
"The answer ii - . Put a stronger
temptation , before them. It is not
your 'slow:going, phlegmatic man
who driiiks; it is, the warm-blooded,
eager fellow, who finds his dull daily
routine intolerable. It is not your
busy business man, whose •culture,
friends, and' Fide social enjoyments
suffice to give outlet to his appetite,
for excitement ; it is the idle drone ;

liquor the American* wants ; it is
stimulant, pleasure, in his money
getting life. Give him these, and he
will drop his habit of tippling and
treating. As a proof of this we'point
our Episcopal friends to-the late Ex
hibition. In : all the nine millions of
people who Passed in at the gates

man who became drunk on, the

excitement offered, was, sufficient;

REMARKING upon the effect of the.
Republican system of protection to
home industry, the London Times
of the 20th says:
" The notion. that_ the fiscal policy
of the governmerif.of the United
States for some years past is destineci,
to close that market to foreign iinn=
ufactures, and that Americans will in
future be able to make all they re
quire- for . ' their own use themselves,
cheaper and of more excellent quali
ty than lean be 'produced , in other
efiuntriea seems to be spreading in
Europe The prolonged depression

compelling Americans to erect ma

hostile tribes—a treaty signed undet - pro

will never be kept longer than t . give
them time to muster their forces and get

.well-meaning, ne doubt, but with an( utter
want. of understanding of the Indian
character—are allowed-to manipulae this
Indian business; so long will we witness a
yearly renewal of jour troubles. It Iseems
to me that the only way it will Soon be
settled, will be te turn the entire charge
of the Indians over to the War Den:ra
t/lent; put there on reservations and keep
them there by foree • treat them kindly
as long as they behave theinselvei.,, but
with the understanding that punishment
for any misconduct will be swift ate sure.

hands of the agents —a class of men made
up on the one hand of thorough-faiqsl ras

on the recommendation of the Vatious

well-meaning, mostly, no doubt, lint men

A. 'dispatch trout. Springfield,. 111.,
says that an attempiewas made on
the 7th inst. to steal the remains of
President Lincoln from the cemetery
Vault. The plot was stispectett some
time since, and Elmer Washburne,
United States Detective Tyrrell, and
his assistants watched the vault on
'Tuesday night. The scoundrels broke
in the outer and inner doors .6f, the
vault, opened the aeverat cases of the
sarcophagus, and were about to make
of with the remains when the detec
tive accidentally discharged a pistol,
which alarmed the robbers, and they
fled precipitately, escaping in the
The most extraordinary part of
this disclosure was the agency .;the
friends oFeld Ben.; Boyd, the notori
ous counterfeiter, now serving a ten
years' term in the Illinois penitentia
ry, had in the proposed scheme of
villainy. Ben. Boyd was captured by
Elmer Washburne some time ago,
and a gang of Counterfeiters, such as
seldom obtain a foothold in Illinois,
was broken up. • Boyd, through the
agency of his friends and his own
wealth, has for some time past been
trying to liberate himself from prison.
The shrewd scheme was to; carry off
th 6 remains of Mr. Lincoln, secrete
them, and keep' their' until ; President
Grant should be compelled to ' 'give
Boyd ~his freedom, conditioned on
the re storation of the remains to their
former resting place. The • infOrma
tion thus obtained was conveyed to
Leon - ant - ;Swett, Esq.,. and Colonel
-Hobert Lincoln', botit'of Springfield,
and steps were taken to.frustrate the
plan. Mi. Swett states that while
many peOple might think this dese
cration of the tomb of Mr. Lincoln
a mere job " put up" by parties for
selfish interests; they were greakly
mistaken.' He believed there was a,
well-concerted plan on the Part of
these desperate meet() secure posses

Later and further, examination of
President Lincoln's' tomb shows that
the scoundrels who attempted to rifle
it on Tuesday night had pried off the
lid of the marble sarcophagus witk'a
chisel or axe, and somewhat chipped
it in the operation. The lid of the
cedar ease, in which the leaden casket
containing his bones lay, was forced
oil and placed upright against the
The casket itself' had been
pulled out about a foot' from the
body of the sarcophagus when. they
were alarmed by the accidental shOt,
and fled, leaving behind/them, lying
on the floor of the vault, an axe, an
ordinary chisel and a pair of nippers.
Although no real clue 'to the thieves
has been discovered, every possible .
means will be taken to apprehend
them. The only plausiWmotive to
be attributed to these despoilers of
the grave' is that they hoped to be
rewarded for the restoration . 'of the
remains,.as it is evident that they in
tended to cut open the leaden casket
and gather up the lames and dust of
;the martyred President and carry
them away.—E.r.
The "Bull-dozer"- has appeared
often of lale in despatches from the
troubled Southern section, but very
few,have a more.than generalidea of
what he is. Here he is described to
the life in a, New Orleans letter to
the Cincinnati—Times:
The word here in this muddle is
'1.3(111-dozed." I see some northern
papers persist in printing, it " Bull
dogged." The • Bull-dozers are or
uanizedl and armed bands of assas,
sins and robbers, who ride about the
country IT
,night, killing , innocent
People, and spreading terrorism
nnunig.the Republican negroes. The
Bull-dozers are successors to the Ku
klux; the White League, the White
Liners, and other similar organiza
tions. It is to these ruffians that
Louisiana owes her sad condition
to-day. Two or three of these bands
of from tliirty to sixty men in etteli,
parish have driven the Republicans'
- •
into the swampy in, five different par-,
ishes, and manipulated the
boxes to suit themselves in the into- ,
est of Tilden and reform. So e
find, parishes, that, hate for . years
given an overwhelming Republican
majority, and which are annually
Republican, to-day reported without
a dozen Republican votes..
Perhaps, just here, it' will not be
amiss , to explain the origin of this
new term of ."Bull-doze." It origi
nated in Mississippi. The black
snake" Whip that teamsters use upon
their oxen or mold is called there by
a compound word, the first of which
is "Bull's." It is abbreviated •‘13n11,"
and the whip called . a "Bull." Whip
ping an obtinate•anhnal or "nigger"
with it was called giving the anni
mai or "nigger" a dose of the brill,
or a bed (lose. The Kuklux and
White League used that instrument
to beat Republicanism out, of the
negroes and oblige them to vote the
Democratic ticket or keep away from
the, polls. Hence the name for these
bands iof roving scoundrels, "Bull
dozers,". „or " Bull-dosers." They
'pronounce it " Bull-doozers " here.
This is the real and only origin of
the term, and 'the name is very sig
nificant and appropriate,.as many a I
negro with a scarred back can testify.

leaving the police at fault and unable to

The strangest of the cases, howe;ier, is.
that of Mary Stewart, whose history is
now being investigated. A few days
prior to the election, the daily papers
contained a brief notice of a woman hav
ing been brutally assaulted, and outraged
.by a policeman,. whom she had asked' to
"show her to a respectable lodging, she
ij having lost her way. The man was dis
charged,; although pointed out by her; for
lack of identification! The comtnent ou
i this by people who merely saw the state-,
meat, was not very favorable to the
powers that be, and it was hinted that hid
it got been near election, oftiser * Gleason
would.have been summarily' discharged I
and beought tO trial. It now appears !
that this woman has made several such
charges, and a man is now serving out
a sentencemf twenty years in Sing Sing,
the result! of a complaint entered and
prosecuted by her ; with the possibiliti ,
that in this case, as in the List ones, the
statement was false. -'One feels inclined
to ask, in the face of these various cases,
which are only a few among many, what
our police are worth, or whether we hate
any very great reason ,to flap our wings
and crow over our country neighbors?

The Rev. Dr. Field, editor of the New

course of lecturers in Cooper Institute,

lecturer looked animated and happy., , He
is just in the second week of his second
honey-moon, having been married on the,.

The dying injunction, in this ease, brtn
'lately met with 'the approval of buth

made his sister-in-law his wife, but she
did not care for him. Her Eiger had
