The unexpected news of the death of
Gen. Kilpatrick, Minister to Chili, has
been received. lie made himself famous
as a Union cavalry commander. When
the rebels under "Job" Stewart were
handling cavalry in their own way, by
repeated raids through the Union lines,
Kilpatrick met them halfway and pluck
ed many a victory. Some of his daring
exploits, byway of invading the enemy's
country were the most brilliant feats of
Union arms. At the close of the war he
settled down on his ancestral acres, giv
ing much time to lecturing on the strik
ing events of the war in which he took
part and in campaign political speaking.
A year ago this summer he organized a
large military rendezvous, with mock
battles and manual vcws near his residence
in New Jersey. These were intended to
revive experiences in the actual field, lie
was sent out as a minister to Chili by
President Garfield. He had previously
married a Chilian wile, and his sympa
thies were very strikingly manifested
toward that country and gave rise to the
recent dilierences between himself and
Minister Hurlbut to Peru. His death
will leave the case, either less or more
difficult for adjustment. Gen. Kilpatrick
was a very electrical sort of a speaker
and was quite a popular favorite. His
old comrades in arms always hastened to
rally about him.
President Arthur made this beautiful
allusion to the lamented Garfield, in his
Annual Message:
An appalling calamity has befallen the
American people since their chosen rep
resentatives last met in the hill where
you are now assembled. We might else
recall with unalloyed content the rare
prosperity with which throughout the
year the nation has been blessed. Its
harvests have been plenteous; its varied
industries have thrived, the health of its
people has been preserved, and it has
maintained with foreign governments uu
disturbed relations of amity and peace.
For these manifestations of IJis favor we
owe to Him who holds our destinies in
His hands the tribute of our grateful de
votions. To that mysterious exercise of
His will which has taken from us the
loved and illustrious citizen who was but
lately the heart of the nation, we bow in
sorrow and submission. The memory of
his exalted character, of his noble
achievements, and of his patriotic life,
will be treasured for ever as a sacred pos
session of the whole people. The an
nouncement of his death drew from for
eign governments and people trib
utes of sympathy and sorrow which his
tory will record as signal tokens of the
kinship of nations and the federation of
A special from Somerset to the Pitts
burg Dispatch says: John Cessna, the dis
tingushed statesman of Bedford, is here,
wit h headquarters at Scull's Herald office*
engaged in important business, lie is
arranging plans to contest the election of
Judge Baer, who, it will be remembered,
defeated Uncle John at the last election
for Judge of the district by thirteen votes.
The ground of contest is somewhat novef.
The claim will be made that vo es for
Baer were received at certain polling
places in this county without the asking
of the questions preserided by the law.
It is proposed to take the position that in
such cases proof at a subsequent hearing
that the questions could all be answered
satisfactorily will not be sufficient to per
mit the counting of the votes.
The Republican caucus in Washington
on Saturday recognized the just claims
of those Congressional employes who are
maimed Union soldiers, without regard
to politics; three of them being Demo
crats and three Republicans. The coun
try will appreciate this action.
Mrs. Garfield appointed President. B.
A. Hinsdale, of Hirm, ()., to edit General
Garfield's works, with instructions to
collect, edit and carry them through the
press as speedily as is consistent with
completeness hud thoroughness. He has
accepted the trust, and will immedaitely
set about preparing the material.
