The bitted- assassin who should stab or pistol him would run no such risk the bravos, who dogged the steps of Brooks. Ile would soon have cause to feel the consequences of his temerity in braving the assassins of the - Should a servile and cowardly puldic opinion become momentarily arronseil in his vindication so as to compel the Dis trict Attorney to prosecute and a jury to convict his assassins, there still remains a Governor to grant them full pardon and immunity. 'lle solemn truth is that, the " Rings" and their hirelings have nut merely control of the ballot boxes, but of every official and political avenue in the Metropolis. What they cannot accom plish by fiand they am ready to execute by violmiCe., It. ie very easy to ask why misdeeds are not exposed and punished. Let, him who thinks it an easy matter to encounter the wolves in their lair under take the job. in the city they are all putrerfa But at the Capital their claws can be pulled by keeping out of Demo cratic caucuses anti conventions all those whose guilty complicity with the " Ring" has beets mode manifest iu the recent election." The dangers here stated have, we think, no influence in screening the as yet of foidera from exposure in this city. The editor who should shrink from do ing his duty from any peril to life or limb, would be, in one judgnent, as poor a cra ven as the soldier who shrinks from the poet of duty from the same fear. We be lieve the journalist in Philadelphia who exposes the villainies perpetrated m this city, runs no risk from wide') his own hand and the laws may not shield nut, it Is of little importance in com p:lrmo!' with the great public intere,ts at stake. =ll But the difficulty is far greater than this nod mach less easy to Meet. It is the myptery in which the collusion between men of both parties has shrouded their acts, that constitutes the real difficulty iii trucking them. Self-interest seals the lips of those' who perpetrated, and those who profited by the frauds. Nes-simper denunciations of incliricia als; *idiont proof to back it, is contrary to our notions of e justice and propriety, and would only a ord a cheap triumph and apparent vindication iii libel suits and prosecutions, in which all the ma chinery of what is here called " jnstice" would be strained and stretched to secure a political verdict. This risk we are in the daily habit of braving, wion we see our way clear to at least the public exhi bition of the truth. Bat without the means of exhibiting it, it would be a blun der to give t the combination of rogues, in and out of office, the opportunity for an easy triumph. What we aim at and expect to get, is proof, through those means that compel disclosure, and open the guilt-closed months by the process of the law. First in importance is the contest which the Municipal Reform Association prom ise. It may call to the witness-stand the men who must tell the damning facts, or withhold them by perjury. Next is the Mil of Mara, pardoned out of prison for one assassination, to which he immediately added another. If this is not disposed of be y some hugger-mug ger, the Court will be able to elicit the truth, though a District Attorney of the United States defend the prisoner, and his own private counsel io the first assns. illation is the State District Attorney, who proseccutes to. the second. But even with these advantages let the criminal lie tried. If he is to escape justice let it be through another pardon, nut by hushing up his case. Already, as we heat, the Ring who divided the proceeds of the great bond rubbery in the City Treasurer's office are trying to hash it up, by paying hack the money and avoiding an ex posit re. Let us have no compounding of felonies, uo mock trials of assassius. Let Mara be tried, and set us bear from the witness stand the men who base had a mrsterious connection with his case. Let 'United States District Attorney Bucher Swope be asked to diselose the secrets of the Peni tentiary. or be forced to screen him4elf by pleading his right of secrecy. as the self tamstiutted counsel of the accused. Here are modes of reaching the truth worth a %Litmus. of vague denunciation. Scarcely less importaut than these judi cial investigations is that which the Dem 4x,rattc party of this city has at last set un foot through ita own political organi zation. This wiil, if prosecuted with vi gut, furnish something better titan rumor affirmed on one - side, but just as stoutly denied on the other, Such investigation is due to the party andall its members.— It is only too common with the press to fling . accusations broadcast upon mere surmise or suspicion. We will not do so against our bitterest politic t! opponent; we will nut do so it„Tunst men who have enjayed the confidence of the Democracy. If, as many believe, they have abused that confidence let us have the proof of it, apinst tbe very men who did the wrong. lhat is whit we want ; that is what we are after; that is what the means at the =mood of - the press fail to extract, for they are met by refusals to answer, or piataxible exculpations or denials, believed by sonde, And disbelieved by others. The case has =tuned an importance to the integrity and future character of the De-, =exec/ of the city of, Philadelphia that deniands searching investigation, and the discoveryof the truth. , Let us not stop short of that, nor eacia tent ourselves with vague rumors and denunciationi Which implicate some who declare themselves to be innocent.' and therefore, by a univer sally recognized principle of jtudice.sho'd not be_ oandetucced without proof...let those among _no who hare, worn 'masks and played the part of Dernocrati,`Artulo secretly they ere in oolludon with the enemy, be noff Thais iha way to. strengthen.tho' Democrsto;p4#l whose efforts are paralyzed by a vague suspicion of men who are Minty found in places of trust and confidence, while there is a wide-spread belief that no trust' or confidence can be placed in them. That is now the question, and now is the time to settle it The Democracy of this city are generally determined to go into no more politieJ contests under suspected leaders.—Philadelphia Age. The Lesson tram Irish History. Father Burke and Mr, Froude are pre senting different views of Irish history to the American public. They are not act nally engaged in controversy, but they tonch the same topics, and occasionally allude to each other—always in a spirit of courtesy which cannot be too highly com mended. Mr. Froude is presenting an English view of the conquest and occu pation of Ireland. It were vain to at tempt, within the limits of an,editorial. a review of the facts on ,which he relies. They have baen contested by many writ ers, they are contested by Father Burke, and the date of most of them is so re mote as to make certainty upon them the result rather of feeling that. judgment. If any-one will consider the difficulty of establishing any fact in our own day that is the subject of political leeling, he will easily realize what uncertainty must at tend the versions of the same class of facts, in remote ages. The result, hot.- ever, of all the dealings of the Britisl government with the Irish people was very frankly stated by Mr. Fronde in his first lecture in New York. Be said: I am hi re to talk common-places about English tyranny or Irish au•riuiony, but the fact remains that at this day, aft r 700 year's of forced connection, we are still unmatched. If the votes of the Ir ish population were taken, men for men, two-thirds would ask for a separttion, immediate and eternal. It stands con fessed beforeull the world that alter all our efforts we have not made friends. We therefore, without reviewing the disputed facts, may judge English policy ; and English rule by a lest that has scrip- tural authority : rlty their fruits shall ye know them." Tons, as American, the question has a weighty significance in the lesson it teaches for our ou n guidance. To-day, a party among us thrives by fos tering the hates and prejudices of a civil war. In a State canvass in Pennsylvania , where the character of public officers for , integrity and tidelitul is of vital moment to the interests of the whole people, the Radical party deafen the public ear and confuse the public mind with ferocious appeals to ferocious passions. They - u gladly hold office for seven ceuiries, as! they have for seven years, by keeping open the wounds of civil war. They arc deriding a policy of justice and concilia tion, and the • whole system of military domination and carpet-bag spoliation, which Radicalism has inflicted on the South, is but u copy of English rule in Ireland. “By its fruits shall ye know it." and know what a like system leads to After seven centuries the aesire for sepa- I ration or "secession" burns fierce as ever in the Irish breast. Mr. Fronde is disposed to ask American judgment on this question. It will be a very divers& judgment, if (rankly spoken. Radicalism would applaud what it imi tates. The Democratic judgment may be gathered from its tw . )sition on the Ameri mtn phase of the same question. We ad vocate the restoration of the just right of the Southern States, under the Constitu tion, and affairs by their own citizens act ually chosen by the people, end not by carpet-bag thieves, hoisted to power by the bayonet. To-day the man who pre tends to represent Mississippi in the Sen ate of the United States is a non-resident who came from Maine, and who made himself Senator while he was holding ab solute power as - military G-vernor of the Shire: We doubt if Father Burke can find anything svorso than that in Irish history. In the question Mr. Fronde presents and asks a judgment on, we think the first and most %ions suggestion is to restore to Irelan her Legislature, of which she was corruptly and fraudulent ly deprived, within the memory of men yet hying. Down to a very late period of the American contest, the people of the Colonies would have submitted to the rule of the English King if they could have escaped the rule of the British Par liament, in which they were not represen ted. or would the admission of a few members from America have bettered the matter. The colonies would submit to no taxation but that imposed by their own Legislative assemblies. Ireland makes the same demand. home rule mast be gin with un Irish Legislature, exercising the powers of a national body. It is what, may be called there, as here, the doctrine of "Slate Bights," that can ulune take the place of unjust foreign rule in local affairs. • We hope Mr. Fronde will learn this les son in America. and take it back with him. In his travels iu this country he v.ill have ample opportunity to learn it; land, let us add, that his acquirements, ability and courtesy entitle him every where in this country to a friendly recep tion and a fair hearing from the Ameri can people. Many of them are deeply in terested and intimately familiar with the topics he discusses... Our land is full (4 exiles and the decendauts of exiles .from Ireland.

The , victim is Charles Lane, a man romances, and with them a story in real of nearly seventy years, an old and hoe- life that transpired a generation ago. Governor Perham, by and with the advice orable Boston merchant, and the senior partner In the commission firm of Charles of his executive council, has pardoned a Lane S. Co., on Federal street.

Almost instantly the alarm was giv en and Drs. Stedman and Fitield were in attendance, and,lplacing their patient un der the in flueryetc of an anmsthetic, pro ceeded to search for the ball, ,which was found to have entered the abdomemabout two inches below and to the right of the navel ; but as probing to any extent was deemed injudicious, its course and resting place are unknown. It was not till sonic minutes after the shooting occurred that the police were notified; but when know ledge of the affair finally reached Lieu tenant Pierce, he Fut every available offi cer on the assassin's track. The assassin opened the outer door mid stood in the porch, whence he rung she Lell and fired the fatal shot, which was scarcely beard by the inmates in the chambers. Mr. Lane closed and locked the dour, ascend ed the staircase to his own room-in front of the ii use, and exel4imed "Elizabeth, I am shot!

SAN Fr.A NCISCO, October 1-I.—Advices from Tucson, Arizona Territory, October 8, says on the 13th of September the Apache Indians attacked ranche. near Crittenden, killed a Mexican, and stole animals belonging to the farm Lieutenant Hall, of the Fifth Cavalry went to the ranche, where Mrs. Gabara and her children were besieged by the In dians, and found the savages one hundred strong, armed With breech-loading guns. They retired to the mountains and defied the troops. A sergeant and live men were despatched to warn the farmers of the Sonata Valley of the present of hostile Indians near Hue's ranche, but they . were attacked, and Setgeant Steward,Cor pont William Nation, and privates Ed ward Carr rind John' Walsh killed. Lieu tenant Ball rect-ived orders from General Howard not to lire on the Indians in the mountains unless be found them engaged in actual outrages. The same order was sent to all of the military posts south of the Cila river, on the same day of the murder of thotoldiers- ~ General Howard was at this time in the Oregon monntaiml, with the noted Apache . chief Cochise, trying to intlint him to go to the Hein ration. On - the 6th of October-ihandof Apaches from the Santa Hillis mountains, with a lieriltif,stiden rattle, attacked a partyof miners thirty miles troriTncous, add robbed' Chem of all their animals. Two cirtlie miners . are misting. The In-. liana are armed with the • hest kind of breech-loading gnns'and 'fixed ammuni-. ttn.

Roaming about the coasts of Maine. lie met and fell desper otely iu love with a' young girl named Lois Alexander. This was at a village called Harpewell, and hero the two be came betrothed. TllOlllll9 and Lois agreed that he should make one long voy age, and on his return that they should marry. He sailed. and time rolled on un til the period fixed for his return was long past. The girl was either persuaded or otherwise bejuileil; at anyraie when Thorn came back—which he did a year later, he found his affianced the wife of an elderly well to do man named Wilson. By one of those fatalities which so often occur in this life, Thorn became a resi dent under Wilson's roof. A close inti macy sprang up once more between Lois and Thomas, and report said that it was criminal. On the morning of Sunday. February 5, 1813, Wilson was found dead in his bed. His skull was broken, and investigation showed that the deed had been committed with a pair of tongs. A t tendon t circumstances connected Thorn with the murder, and pointed to Lois Wilson as accessory. Both were tried, and he was found guilty, and she acquited. Honorable William P. Fessen den and Frahcis 0. J. Smith, being as signed by the government for his defense, made a hard tight to save Thorn, but in rain, and the end we have recorded. He was first emdemned to death, but the punishment was committed to imprison ment for ht ., : end DOW ,st the ag e of fifty four years, he has received a pardon. Mien first put in jail. Thorn could neither read or writ , ; and he is now said to be a tolerably well educated man.

To pass a generation of confinement, to be thus itumnied during those years commonly rsckened the hest of a man's certainly a terrihle punishment. and under the c'... - cunimanees few will sac that Thorn's case was not a fitting one for tlie exercise of executive clemency. Border Thletes Captured MAramuhAs, Oetuber 1-I.—Yesterday' the ]kcal and inillitary authorities at Browns% ilk Texas, applied through the United States Consul, to Gen.

This is the first case of the kind occurring since Rocha came here, and the satisfac tory result is regarded with pleasure by all desiring•peaee on the border.

The now Horse litheuise. BUITALO, Oct. 22.- —The horse diSebse is still on the increase, and over seven eighths of all tho liorseti in the city are afflicted. The disease appears every w here, breaking out as severely among private coach horses as in ear anti ommlins sta bles. The street car horses have been withdrawn from all shorttrips, and the cars arc making fewer trips and slower time. Among 250 horses owned by.Oath eras, not a single animal is-free from dis ease. The Express this morning pithlithes; a table showing the number of horses sick in twelve livery stables in this city, which shows that of 415 horses only .1:3 are able tt, work, and of the twelve stables,-eleven are closed. Cf one hundred hacknieu in the city but ten appeared yesterdair, and there are none nt all visible' to.day. Om 'tabus companies have suspended their trips for the past three days, and- tue truck horses are all laid up. Of twenty-seven horses owned by the express company, only one is being worked. The disease has appeared among the fire department horses but not to ageneral extent. ]sack in the country the disease has net appear ed vet Or the canal it has broken out but very littie. but should it become general the damage to shippers and carriers cannot be estimated. In some f.sw caaeo where it has appeared the horses have been taken oat of the stables, away from other teams, and in this way the towing companies hope to prevent theepidemic from becom ing general. So :ar not more than a half dozen horses have died. The disease is not considered fatal until it reaches the lungs. Many of our veterinary surgeons have visited Canada to inquire into the natpre of the disorder and learn the me thod of cure. The symptoms appear to be a Lad cough, with a-running at the nostrds. and horses afflicted with, the disease eat and drink but little. There is no question amrmg hors men here but this is a Cana dian disease which has swept throvh Montreal; and still esists in the latter place. It seems to he spremling east, hav ing already appeared in Vochester. At Niagara Palls and Suspension Bridge, nearly all the horses are at - Bitted with the disease. LO,::11POIZT, Oct. 22.—The horse disease is prevailing here to an alarming extent. The stables are all closed. nie have their storehouses filled with flour which cannot be moved. Tbedisease has broken out in the canal stables. At. Ton awanda and Rochester the horse epidemic is prevailing, and nu the in,rea, , ,o. At Tonitwanda it has broke - s. out in the (m -int stables. MorruE,lL, Oet.22.—The city INIEF.QO - ger railroad cars have been compelled to stop running on account of the preval ence of the horse epidemic. Tile carters are taking advantage of the present-state of things, and refrise• to engage 'at old rates. and are charging exorbitant prices, notwithstanding the law regn:ating the tariff and the pOwer of police authority to enforce it. The cab stands are as tuft as usual—the Tortes standing in the brac ing air all day seeming to escape the dis ease. Dr. Girdwood attributes the disease fai the unusual amount of rain that has'fal len of late, saturating the soil with mois ture, and says-the consequent continuous dampness in the air has caused an unu sually large 'development of fungoid gmwth, everything being 'mildewed that can be. He thinks the mildew at' most of thr stables is the cause of the cold af fecting the horses, and says he would treat them the same as he vonld ,treat himself if similarly placed, G} keepint; the stables in as dry a condition as possi ble and using every possible means , to pu rify the air to prevent thcAevelopment and growth of, mildew. The city is at present at the Mercy of the carters who seem terule"passenger travel - how as they please. • Tonorro, Oct. 22.—The horse disease enidernic which seemed to have first start ed here, has, nearly disappeared from the city, but is spreading throughtot the Do minion. The•few deathsMtrieh occurred here were among horses that were kept at work or in a poor condition. Horses that were properly cared for escaped with ; but littlOnjury. Laura D. kali'.
