kindling wood, was wounded in the hand,
which commenced swelling, and upon
search a copperhead snake was found
under the stove. Mrs. D. is in a low

MR. Cynus W. FIELD, is inclined to
think that his quondam friend and asso
ciate Hon. SAMUEL J. TILDEN is a knave.
At least such is the resonable conclusion to
be drawn from his remarks to a reporter of
the Now York World. His grievance is,
that as a great favor he took SAMMY, into
the Elevated railroad speculation, and
that the Statesman - took advantage of his
absence to seel his stock, pocketing there
by a profit of a Cool million of dollars.
Just like TILDEN, who would sell his best
friend, if their was 'any money to be
made.. - FIELD says " that nothing under
Heaven would tempt me ever to have any
more dealings with SAMUEL. J. TILDEN,"
and now ho is convicted that he knew
everything about those cipher dispatches.
The great majority of the people believed
that long ago.
CONGRESSMAN MORRISON, of Illinois,
who is a democrat of prominence, has re
cently been in Washington, and being
interviewed, expressed his opinions very
fully and frankly about the Democratic
aspirants for the Presidency, and particu
larly as to Mr. TILDEN'S claims upon the
party. Ho does not. recognize the force
of T;LDEN's demand tluVt the party shall
redress wrongs and vindicate him by
again making him their candidate. In
his opinion Mr. TILDEN has now no claim
whatever upon the party, having frittered
away his strength by his ambiguous and
cowardly course in 1876. In MORRISON'S
opinion no amount of planning or schem
ing can' again give Mr. Trumi a bold
upon the confidence of the party, and he
ought to be convinced by this time that
it is his duty ; to publicly announce his in
tentions-to retire to private life. Not
withstanding which , the statesman of
Gramercy Park is all the time tightening
his coils, and binding the cords which
will ensure his candidacy-
THE VAZOO AFFAIR.
The "Mississippi plan" continues
to work smoothly and effectually.
]laving completely wiped out the
colored vote, and made a solid Dem
ocratic South, its efficacy:is now
shown by the facility with which it
disposes of all revolting members of
the. organization. . It is but a week
or so ago, that we called attention to
'the manner' in which Captain Dixos,
was persuaded to leave the field as an
Independent candidate for Sheriff,
having the alternative of so doing, or
quitting the County. IL appears that
his acquiescence in the request of his i
bull-dozing neighbors was not volun
tary, and that after consideratign,
and the persuasion of many respeet
able and influential Democrats he re
considered his declination, and de
termined. to continue in the field as
an Independent candidate. The
natural result of such a course is
told in a despatch from Yazoo, Miss
issippi, which says that DIXON was
shot in the backby J. H. BASKODAL;
the Democratic candidate for 'Chan
cel y Clerk, a nephew of E. BARKS.
DALE, a prominent- candidate for the
lln ited States! Senate, editor of the
Der aoemtic Clarion, and Chairman
of the Democratic State Executive
Committee. The murder appears to
have been done In a cowardly , man
ner. The murderer, who was awe 1
with s double-barrelled Shot gun;
met bi l e intended victim in the Street,
and fired, pntOng - tour buckshot into
hib luic - k. Dams died soon after,
surrounded by his family consisting
of a wife and five children.
Weshould be content to leave this
brutal assassination to the Southern
community in which it took place,
and the vindication of the outraged
laws to the tardy and uncertain jus
tice of that section, had it no politi
cal significance. But there is that in
the circumstances which led to this
bloody deed, which should arrest at
tention, as indicative of ,the means
which have been employed to terrify
the colored population, and to com
pletely destroy their politi4l power
and influence. We place no stress
upon the fact that the murdered man
was a person of a desperate charac-
acter, used to violence, and had play
ed a conspicuous part in terrifying
the negroes, even to• the length of
murder. For whatever may have
been his character', he had for his
very misdeeds received from his
Democratic associates a valuable tes
timonial "in evidence of their high
appreciation' of his services - in the
redemption of the County from Re
publican rule." Furthermore it would
appear that DIXON Was a unyn of
wealth, intelligence and respectably
connected.—iii fact, an average South-
ern gentleman: •
Now, if with all these/qualifica
tions and thee recommendations to
the confidtnee and esteem of the
Southern Democracy, he was shot
down like a dog in /the streets in
this brutal and cowardly manner,
what does it prove? It proves not
only the lawlessnesi of the community
in which he lived, it shows not only
that no opposition to the Democratic
party would be allowed, but it illus
trates in a manner which should con
vince every candid person, the terri
ble persecutions, the brutal treat
ment, the unheard-of cruelties which
have been thii lot of the colored
people, and which have also in a
measure been:. shared by Southern
Republicans. Such a murder as this
perpetrated in open daylight, in the
streets ot Yazoo, is the strongest
possible corroborative evidence of
the truthfulness of all that has been
alleged, as to outrages and bull-doz
ing of the colored voter.
It is no palliation of the barbarity
of the deed, nor gratification to say
that the victim was one of the lead
ers in the original plan for terrifying
the negroes and compelling the
abandonment of the Republican
-organization. That he was violent
and unjustifiable in the means he em
ployed; is no excuse for the treat
ment he received at the hands of his
-former friends, when he attempted to
set up an opposition to the regular
Democratic organization. His tak
ing-off may have a savor of retribu- -
tive justice, but it is a ghastly illus
tration of what wail ineeted out to
the poor, ignorant, timid colored
voter, when the Mississippi plan was
first put into operation. If those
who have given' evidence s as to the
barbarities and cruelties perpetrated
upon the Republicans of the South,
during the memorable shot-gun cam- .
paign ot 1875 and since, the whip-.
pings and torture of active Republi
cans, the threatenings by armed and
masked midnight marauders, the in
timidations and warning, and worse
than all, the bloody victims of vio
lence, slain as a menace, needed any
corroboration, they-have it abundant
ly and convincingly in the blood that
testifies from the streets of Yazoo,
l and cries out for vengeance not only
against the murderer but the dread
ful system which lies at the bottom
of the dark deed.
The murderer may, and probably
will, go unpunished, but his misdeeds
will rise up. in evidence against the.
party which has made such a crime
possible, and though law and justice
should be speedily and effectively
vindicated, yet the Northern people
are taught a forcible lesson, as to the
danger of placing in, power a party
whoseauccess-would he the result of
violent and unlawful efforts, and the
leaders of which are ready to resort
to assassination for the purpose of
retaining the power they have 'ob
tained by such desperate means.
Ax English free-trader and a mem
ber of Parliament—TnomAs'EAvi.zy
Porrza—arrived in New York, last
week, and was given a public recep
tion by a number, of his personal
friends and admirers—an honor
which he ivell _deserves, as he has
always been the fast friend of the
United Statics, and sympathized fully
with the government in the struggle
to save the Union. While we respect
and honor him for his past services,
and'welcome him cordially and heart
ily to this country, we cannot applaud
the purpose for which in a measure
he comes. He would persuade the
American people to permit Congress
' to amend our tariff laws so as to suit
the manufacturers - Of England better
than they do at present. His idea is
that for wheit and beef the English
people are taking from us, we ought
in return permit the manufactures of
that nation to come in freely. And
it is hinted that unless .we do so, as
a measure of retaliation, England will
abandon her , favorite theory of free
trade, and return to tariff laws that
will exclude our provisions and
breadstuff, to' protect the , farmers of
that country. This, is asking to
much, and in the asking proves too
much. Under our high* tariff the
manufactures of this country - have
developed wonderfully.. The prover.
bial skill and ingenuity of our people
have already brought out so many
improvements and inventions that
they are invading successfully the
marketi of Euriope, and American
insunfacturers are competing with
those of other .conntries, .flotwith
stmiding-,the cheapness of foreign
Itthei. But 'ler the protection affoid
.ed Mar mantifacturers by a tariff, this
could not have been the case, because
foreign competition would have come
in and struck down at the outset the
enterprises and investments which
have developed into such large and
Whilst our manufactures are thus
bein sent all over the world, yet
they not sufficiently established
to be permanent and certain against
foreign competition shotild our tariff
laws be modified in the interest of
the 'foreigners.. There have been
many striking examples of the kind
of competition to which American
enterprise and capitnl was subjected
when endeavoring to build up a busi
ness which interfered with foreigners
engaged in supplying this country
with the articles sought to be made
here. The result was a combination
of fOreign manufacturers against the
American experimenter, the flood
ing of the market with goods at-ruin
ons rates—Lthe embarrassment kid
failure under such unfair competi
tion' of the home producer, and the
triumph of foreign capital. In this
way the development of American
manufactures has been retarded. But
with the protection of the present
tariff this has been in a great meas
ure impossible—a feeling' of security
has caused many large enterprises to
spring up through the countryhome
competition has not only kept down
prices, but made necessary the exer
cise of every' possible economy and
the development of new and improv
ed labor-saving methods, until to-day
manufactured articles can be bought
at lower prices than ever before
known, while the manufacturer real-
I izes a profit, and takes his goods into
foreign markets, confident in his
k ability to compete with the world.-
There are but few of the articles
in daily and general use, whose cost
to the consumer is enhanced by the
duties which virtually exclude those
of foreign nnike from competition.
Domestic competition has, and will,
keep down prices to a 'reasonable
figure. The versatility and wide
awake character of our people will
prevent excessive profits in any
branch of business. The business,
_whatever it, may be, which pays large
dividends, will soon find competitors
,to engage in the same business, who
'will be satisfied with smaller profits,
and thus prevent monopoly from in-
Meting burdensome prices. But that
the cotton goods, the cutlery, the
sewing machines, and labor-saving
'machinery of the United States are
illlbeginning to find foreign markets,
'Hoes not prove that our markets
should be thrown open to the designs
and competition of the older estab
lished manufacturers of Europe, who
could successfully Combine to crush
out the enterprises which interfere
with their tong established markets.
There will be time enough for us to
extend the courtesy of free trade to
other nations when our manufactur
ers shall be firmly established, and
not in danger of being affected by
the pauper` labor of Europe, nor by
the fluctuations of her markets. So
• while we welcome ,Mr. POTTER to
this country, and extend to him the
courtesies and hospitalities to which
he is entitled, we respectfully say to
him that we are satisfied with the
condition of things, and quite con
tent that England shall' have a
monopoly of the Estee Trade experi
ment, which is now bringing so much
suffering to her shores, and so much
distress to her laboring population.

The way in which local politics is man

three important offices. The ticket as
agreed upon by the Grand Sarshedrim
has caused a good deal of comment, and '
has already brought out symptoms of re
volt. The earnest unselfish Republicans
feel certain that it will be repudiated at
the polls by the voters, and an attempt is
being made to "break the slate." Prob
ably it will be successful, as the leaders
are very anxious not to lose , the - offices:
They have already fooled away some of
the best reeks of the city, and don't feel
like repeating the mistake.
The Times with characteristic effront
ery, has seized hold of the situation and
is volunteering columns of advice to •the
Republicans. Some of it is good, notwith
standing- the impudence which inspires
it. Its columns are full of arguments to
prove that llartranft should be nominat
ed for Sheriff. Of course the Times has
no love for liartranft, and does not de
sign to aid.the Republican party, but the
condition of affairs gives it a good oppor
tunity for 'suggestions ;which are mere
badinage and which are in no Sense earn
estly and honestly intended.
By the way, the -Timis sails under a
flag which is only intended to deceive. Its
pretended cloak of independence and neu
trality is made of the thinnest and gauzi
est materials. It is Democratic in all its
surroundings, in all its interests, and in all
' its expectations and endeavors. Its pub
list:era, stockholders and backers -are
all Democrats, and there is no savor of
anything else about the paper, if we ex
cet Colonel McClure, and ju s t what to
designate him ,politically wod puzzle
the shrewdest guesser. The Vein never
praises a Republican man or measure,
unless it cannot do any possible harm to
the Democratic cause, it , never rebukes
a Democratic man or measure, unless cer-,
rain that its rebuke will prove innocuous,
or unless thp wrong doing is so huge and
apparent that it is useless to deny or _at
tempt 'to conceal it, and then it improved
the occasion to magnify its own pretend
ed independence and impartiality ; it nev
er sees any gOod in the Republican party,
nor any wrong in the Democracy, it mag
nifies the failings of the Republican lead
ers, and palliates or excuses the outrages
of the Confederates; it treats the wrongs
of the Southern Republicans with cold
hearted indifference and makes light of
the excesses and persecutions perpetrated
by the Southern bull-dozen. As the
readers of the Times are mainly Republi
cans, it might be supposed that greater
exertions would be made to cloak the
manifestations of its Democratic tenden

ORB WARRINGTON LETTER.
WASHINGTON, D. C., Aogast 21, 1879,
• The question of reorganizing the vanes
Republican Associations, which has been
agitated for some time by the former
niembers of these organizations has been
suddenly silenced. These associations, it
sill be remembered had for, their objects
social enjoyment and political work, such
at; distributing campaign literature when
it would do the most good, and making
arrangements to, send home its members
and others to cast their votes. informa,
tion having been sought through the
proper channels, it had been ascertained
that if the associations were organized on
their old basis nor objection would he
made by the President. But the question,
it appears, having been submitted to the
Cabinet, not only failed to receive their
approval, but was met with a decided op
position by those- known as advocates
Of what is known as Civil Service Reform.
Consequently all talk upon the subject of
their revival has suddenly ceased.
The result of the introduction of their
new theory into the political field has
given rise to the question among many
Whether C. S. R. stands for Civil Service
Reform or Confederate Sta . es Rendezvous.
If the Civil Service was to be reformed
under the direction of the Bourbon tDe
rnocracy, the - two definitions would lie
Synonymous. But as it is, the practical
result of its adoption has been to intro
duce into the government employ a large
class of determined enemies of the Repub
lican party, and a still larger class who
re totally indifferent to all partisan in
ernes, who will neither vote nor con
tribute to the Rumens of the party ?3,y
whom they are fostered and fed. And
there are still another class, who under
its sheltering wings: pare just now good
enough Republicans,' and they would_ be
just as good Democrats were they under a
!Democratic administration. Like a weath
er vane, they are always prepared to turn
in any way that th, wind may be blowing.
'Very many of this class are enjoying the

Reform is a very pOpular word, and al

when it'comes .to reforming enemies of
Republican principles into-office, it looks
as if the scheme was a device of the com

very large cat in a very large pile of meal.
The work on the new National Museum
is being pushed forward with a view to
as early a'completion of the structure as
possible. The building, as designed, will
be but one and two stories in height, but
will cover ground to the extent of three

woes, when completed will look like a t
great conglomeration of caravan an&

San Francisco Excited!
There was wild excitement in San
Francisco, Saturday, growing put of
shootingthe of Res...lsaac S. Sal
loch,; the Working Mena' candidate
for Mayor, by Charles De Young one
of the - proprietors of the Chronicle,
and only very decided action on the.
part of the city authorities pre
vented a lynching and a riot.. :The
excitement had .subsided somewhat
on Sunday, and there was no indica
tion of further trouble unless some
thing unforseen should occur. The
causes which fed . to the affiii ,
are these: ' After Kalloch's nomina
tion for Mayor by the Working Men,
the Chronicle, which. is the organ of
the "Honorable Bilks" party, attack
ed him without ineasure, : and repub
lished, among other things, the story
of his "unsavory" 'record in Boston,
many years ago.' Not content with,
this the Chronicle attacked the repu
of his dead father, who was
also a . minister. Kalloch retorted on
the De Youngs, in a , speech at a pub
lic meeting of . Working Men, on
Friday night, by assailing the repu- -
Lotion of their aged mother, and
promising to- republish in the Open
Letter an infamous article against
her and them - from a disreputable
paper„which had a brief existence
in San Francisco five years ago. On
Saturday morning Charles De. Young
drove in a coupe to the Metropolitan
Church, sent a message to the
minister that a gentleman wished to
see him, and when -Kalloch reached
the door of the vehicle, fired at him
twice. One ballet penetrated Kal
loch's lung, the ' other struck him in
the thigh, inflicting serious, - if - not
fatal, wounds. The carriage contain
ing De Young was then about to
drive away when a crowd gathered
and overturned the vehicle. They
assaulted De Young and a police
msareand attempted to lynch the
former, but two other policemen
coming up, rescued him from the
mob and he was placed in the police
Station at the City Hall. The, news
of the shooting caused qntense.ex
eitement among the. Working Men
throughout the -city, and for several
hours a serious riot was threatened,
but the militia were got ready for
the emergency, and this fact with the
moderate counsels of some the lead
ers of the Working Men, expressed
at a Sand Lot. meeting prevented a
riot. A demonstration, however,
was made, upon the Chronicielotllce,
and H. De Young, brother of
Charles', was locked up, at hkown
bequest, in the station-house with his
_brother. In reply to ateleff b ram
Gene_ from ral McComb, commanding
the State troops in San Francisco,
Secretary McCrary telegraphed to.
ColOnel McAllister, commanding the
Benicia Arsenal, authorizing him to
issue 50,000 cartridges to the State
of California. Dennis Kearney, who
was in 'Vallejo, was telegraphed -to,
and 'arrived in San Francisco on
Saturday evening. He addressed' a
Wand Lot meeting counseling his
hearers against, violence, and pre-,
dieting a victory for their party at
the coming election, after which Mr.
De Young should be punished. A
son of ' Rev.. Mr Kalloch also ad
dressed the meeting and advised
that the law be allowed, to take its
course. Mr.' Kalloch remained bi a
critical condition, last night,•but his
physicians had some hopes of. his re
covery. " Meetings of Working Men,
to express sympathy for Kalloch and
denounce his ttntagonists, were held
in New Yorkrand Chicago..
