From the Cincinnati Enquirer, April 6.
False Representations of the Cause that
Led to the Destruction of the Ballot-
boxes on Monday and Tuesday.
An effort is being made by the Know-
Nothing organization to shift from itself the
great responsibility of the criminal outrages
which, on election day and since, have dis
graced the city. Telegraphic reports, con
taining scarcely a single grain of truth, have
been sent abroad to manufacture public opin
ion. But- the ro'o'st audacious falsehoods we
have seen anywhere, are contained in.the
following resolutions, which we take from
the Gazette. The individual who framed
them must have had great hardihood
"Resolved, That the American Reform
party of the city of Cincinnati has heard
with pain and regret of the destruction of
the ballot-box and poll-books of the Eleventh
and Twelfth Wards- of this city. They dis
claim all knowledge and agency in these acts
of violence, and condemn them in the most
unqualified terms. The frauds which char
acterized the election in these Wards, and
the brutal personal assaults which were per
petrated on our American and Protestant fel
low citizens, by lawless foreigners and emis
saries of the Pope, throughout the day of the
election ; the attempts that were made by
men ignorant of the genius and spirit of our
republican institutions, to prevent native-born
and other Protestant citizens from voting,
deserve the most unqualified condemnation
of all good citizens. But we cannot consent,
in this country of law, that such excesses
shall be redressed by such retaliatory mea
sures. While the ballot-box shall be kept
pure, its abuse, by whatever fraudulent
means, must not be redressed by Violence,
but rather by a peaceable resort to the courts
and to the laws.
"Resolved, That the American Reform
party of the city of Cincinnati have heard
with gratification the determination of the
candidates on their ticket to decline any and
every advantage which may have been given
to them by the loss to their opponents of the
votes of said Wards."
Now, we unhesitatingly assert, that no
elections in the city were ever conducted
with greater legality or less fraud than those
in the Eleventh and Twelfth Wards. The
poll-books of the former are preserved, and
we venture to say that there are not a dozen
names upon them which are not well known
citizens of the wards. It is absolutely false
that any attempts were made to prevent
Know-Nothings from voting at either of
those polls. It was different there from
what it was in , the Fourth Ward, where
Democrats were brutally driven from the
ground by the Know-Nothing organization,
and some of them severely maimed and in
jured by Know-Nothing bullies. The judg
es of election in the Twelfth Ward were
Know-Nothings, and it is not very likely
they allowed any "frauds" to be perpetrated
against that party.
.The talk about foreigners and emissaries
of the Pope is sheer nonsense, of which sen
sible men should be ashamed. The simple
truth is, that because it was known that those
wards had given large Democratic majorities,
they were destroyed by the Know-Nothing
bullies. It was all a preconcerted scheme,
and intimations to that effect were given to'
prominent 'Democrats hours before it occur
red. In order to accomplish it, a fight was
provoked between some Know-Nothing row
dies living out of the ward, and some Ger
mans. The 'former were beaten. They
then immediately started the lying rumor all
over the city that Americans could not vote
in the Fleventh, when in fact, they had about
all voted. The Know-Nothings then poured
into that ward in a riotous manner, seized
the ballot-box, the object of their attack, and
destroyed it. They endeavored to do the
same thing in other Democratic wards, but
luckily were foiled. Supposing that with
out the Eleventh Ward the Democratic can
didates were in the minority, the mob dis
persed. But to their astonishment it was
discovered next day that without it most of
the Democratic ticket was elected. It was
then the idea was broached of destroying the
Twelfth Ward polls.
Another lying rumor was circulated that
there was an excess of ballots, when, in fact,
they agreed exactly with the names upon the
poll- books. But Know-Nothin g
from the Times office rushed into the Ward
before the votes were entirely counted, and
burned that poll also. This is a true state
ment of the case, and our friends abroad can
rely on its correctness. Our Know-Nothing
opponents could not submit quietly to their
defeat, and resorted to these desperate and
outrageous acts in order to prevent it. We
trust that the last resolution is true, when it
disclaims for the candidates on the Know-
Nothing ticket any disposition to profit by
the destruction of the Eleventh and Twelfth
Ward polls. Most certainly, if one of them
does so, he will be lost to all sense.of decen
cy and propriety, and excite a suspicion of
his complicity 'n the outrage. - They know
they are badly beaten. The township box
es in the Eleventh and Twelfth Wards were
preserved, and the result shows a majority
there for the Democratic ticket of eight hun
dred and eighty-seven in the former, and six
hundred and forty-seven in the latter. On
the general ticket the majority was equally
as great. We shall see if, in the face of
more than a thousand majority in the city,
any Know-Nothing candidate will endeavor
to usurp a public position.
THE LATEST FOREIGN NEWS
Since our last issue the steamships Wash
ington and America have arrived with dates
to the 31st ult.
The Vienna Confexence
Difficulties of a serious nature have arisen
on the third point of the guarantees. The
western Powers, foreseeing trouble, did not
propose the demolition of Sebastopol ; but
modified their demands into a reduction of
Russian power in the Black Sea—in recom
pense for which, they offer to evacuate the
Russian territory. The Russian Plenipoten
tiaries reply that they are not authorized to
accede no any such terms, and must remit
the matter to St. Petersburg. Here the Con
ference stands still. All the plenipotentia
ries have sent to their government far instruc
tions, and the Conference will probably be
adjourned until final authority shall arrive.
Meantime, the fourth point is under discus
sion. Prince Gortschakoff, on the 26th,
moved for the admission of prussia.
The London News says that according to the
most recent communications from Vienna,
Lord John Russell was understood to see no
prospects of peace at present, and that he
expected to return to England by the 14th of
The opinion is freely' expressed by the
London Press, that any hope of peace is now
precarious and uncertain.
Progress of the, War with Sebastopol
The special correspondent of the London
Times describes the condition of the army as
much improved. Weather fine, health and
spitits of the troops better, provisions abun
dant, and sanitory regulations strictly enfor
ced ; but the actual works of ihe siege make
no progress to justify Favorable prophecies.
Actual inorease of the lines and batteries
there is, but it exists on both sides, and there
has been no comparative advantages gained
by the Allies.
A formidable Russian force is assembled
around Eupatoria, and virtually besieges the
place. The Russians could not . hold Eupa
toria if taken, as it is completely under the
guns of the English fleet.
Lord Raglan's latest despatches announces
a steady fire, without any change in the as
pect of affairs. Important operations are,
however, going on.
The Russians co:l6one to strengthen the
works which they rec3ntly threw up in ad
vance of the Malakoff tower. These ace not
isolated Works, but are part of an advanced
line of defence, and consequently it is indis.
pensable for the allies to destroy them. With
this object in view, the British are pushing
forwrd a parallel from an advanced point on
the right, with a view • to form a junction
with a corresponding parallel which is being
made on their side by the French.
Nightly encounters take place between the
French and Russian Riflemen. The latter
have been . repeatedly dislodged, but again re
turn to their pits, under cover of the Russian
The Paris Presse states (but the statement
is contradicted by other papers,) that the Al
lies have assented to a truce.
A manifesto from the Holy Synod of the
Russian Church has appeared, - incitino . the
Russian nation to war in defence of the
LIVERPOOL, March 30.—A1l articles with
the exception of corn have undergone a slight
decline, and a general dulness prevails.
The War Signs in Mumps,
It is not discoverable that the death of the
Czar Nicholas has produced the slightest
change in Europeon politics. It was simply
the sudden removal of a great individual.
His plans, ideas 'and polity survive him in
the persen of his son, and, thus far, Nicho
las is as potent in his grave as he was three
months ago, when a vast empire called him
lord, and worshipped and obeyed him al
most as a demi-god. The intelligence from
Europe is one month later than the accession
of Alexandeo IL—which period should have
developed some tokens of change of Russian
policy, if such changes were about to take
place. But nothing of this kind has been
made manifest. The most liberal construc
tion of the most pacific declarations of the
new Czar cannot, interpret them as in the
least degree reversing a single determination
of Nicholas. Character-painters, in search
of a sign of peace, may endeavor to draw
Alexander, with materials manufactured for
the occasion, as an amiable, peace-loving, un
ambitious prince ; but such pictures deserve
no more respect or confidence than any oth
er fancy sketches.
The truth is that although, by right of in
heritance and common consent, Alexander
rules Russia, Russia in a certain sense and
with power at present irresistible, rules Al
exander. Even if he were an enthusiastic
non-resistant, ho could not 'now, nor for
months to come, think of peace on the must
favorable terms, lest he would lose the crown
he has so lately succeeded to. The Russian
people—that Is to say the strongest and weal
thiest portion of them—are all for war ; and
even the peasantry are flattered by the suc
cessful resistance of the Russian armies to
their foes, and each one begins to feel a per,
sonal interest in the struggle; for each one, if
he has not already been engaged in it, is lia
ble to serve at any moment ; or the war has
become hallowed iu the memory of each by
the sacrifice of some near relative or friend—
a sacrifice that even the vulgarest of the peas
ants would avenge by the offering of his own
strong arm to repel the invaders of Russia.
There is no mere blind obedience to superior
officers in the Russian army. Every conflict
with their enemies. reveals genuine patriot
ism, sustained by a certain religious enthu
siasm which, among such a people, is the
strongest stimulant to physical courage.
The news by the Washingion is far from
being favorable to peace. At Sebastopol and
at Vienna the war signs are in the ascendant.
The conferees at Vienna, after agreeing most
happily on the two first points of settlement,
stumble at the third. The Russian 'plenipo
tentiary, acting no doubt in obedience to the
instructions of the new emperor and the well
known feeling of the Russian people, rejects
the conditions proposed, and, like all the oth
er Vienna conferences connected with the
. this war, the present is likely to
break -up without any other result than wi
dening the breach between Russia and the
allies. Such seems to be the expectation in
England and France, both of which powers
are vigorously pursuing their hostile meas
ures. Er.gland was to send her great Baltic
fleet to sea on the 2d of April. France
promises to send fifty thousand more troops
to the Crimea, after the Conference. Napo
leon is still preparing to go to the East, and,
in the meantime, is to visit with the Em
press, the Queen of England, at Bucking
nam Palace, by Way of strengthening the al
liance, and perhaps of reviving, by a pom
pous display, the wasted and exhausted war
enthusiasm of the English, The English are
in fact, heartily weary of the war, and it
they could get Out of it decently, would glad
ly do so; But Napoleon is bent on achiev
ing some grand result before. consenting to
peace, and he :las both the will and the pow
er necessary.. His greatest difficulty thus
far has been the inefficiency of his ally, and
he no 'doubt counts-upon bringing about bet
ter efforts on the part of England by his visit
to Victoria. An indefinite continuation of
the war seems- from every point of view to
be the present prospect.—Phila. Bulletin.
Love, Jealousy and Murder
A correspondent of - theßichmond Dispatch,
writing from Wytheville, Va., under date of
the 2d inst., states that on Saturday night
last, a most shocking_ tragedy occurred in
Wytheville, by which one of the oldest and
most influential citizens of that town was in
stantly killed, and three other persons dan
gerously wounded. The particulars. of the
bloody affair are as follows;—For some time
past,,a man named J. Austin Graham has
been paying his attentions to the daughter
of a wealthy old gentlemen named W. H.
Spiller, who is reported to be worth about
$200,000. Graham was unsuccesful in hts
suit, from the fact that the young lady lov
ed, and was engaged to be married to a phy
sician named Dr. Hamet. Graham, on account
if this state of things, has been very violent,
and threatened to take the life of his rival
the first opportunity that offered. On Sit- -
urday night, about 10 o'clock, he entered the
Wytheville Hotel, kept by Mr. Thomas J.
Boyd, where Mr. Spiller, the ' father of the
young lady, was sitting, in company with
Mr. C. F. 'Trigg, Teller of the exchange
Bank at Abingdon, Mr. C. Cox. an attache
of the Hotel, and a Mr. Terry, of Wytheville.
Graham - dreW a revolver, and commenced
firing into the crowd, killing Nfr. Spiller at_
the first fire. Mr. Cox is very badly woun
ded, but will, it is thought, recover. Messrs.
Terry and Trigg were wounded, but not se
riously. The murderer fled immediately af
ter the commission of the bloody deed, and
at last accounts had riot been arrested.
