New Youk, April 22.?Tammany

' Well, now, to tell the truth, I have
not yet paid much attention to candidates.
I am sorry to say that some
folks t'niuk Tammany is going to the
convention to make trouble. Such is
not the case. The convention will be
harmonious, and whoever the candidate
may be, it is certain that he will
rcceive the support of the united Democracy."
"And do you say that without
reservation as to any prominent Democrats?"
"I do, most emphaticaally. Tammany
will snpport any candidate who
receives the nomination of the Democratic
"IIow about Mr. Tilden?'
"I do not care to discuss him at
present. I know that there are many
who want him to be nominated, but I
understand that he does not wish the
nomination. That is settled. So far
as Mr. Tilden's intellect is concerned,
I believe him to be strong, but I fear
that he could not bear the physical
strain of a protracted canvass or
endive the fafigues of office."

Laying the Comer Stone for the Thirc
Columbia, April 23.?The. ceremonial
of laying the corner-stone of the
Confederate monument took place this
evening. Notwithstanding the facl
that J his was actually th^ third time
the corner-stone of this monument has
been laid there was a large attendance.
It will be remembered tbat the firs!
site of the monument was on Arsenal
Hill, that it was afterwards changed
to the State House grounds, and that
after the destruction of the statue by
lightning eighteen months ago it was
determined to give the mouument a
better position, directly In front of the
State House and at the northern entrance
to the grounds. At this spot
hundreds of persons, comprising many
ladies and the best citizens of Columbia,
were gathered this evening at 6.3C
o'clock. The members of the .Richland
Lodge, No. 39, A. F. M., in full
regalia, headed by Mr. E. R. Arthur,
acting Grand Master, reached the spot.
The ladies of the Monumental Association
took position about the base oi
the monument, and after a fervent
prayer by the Rev. Win. Martin of the
Methodist church the corner-stone was
duly laid according to the Masonic
ceremonial, by acting G. M. Arthur,
assisted by Deputy G. M. Leapbart.
The *tone contained the articles usually
deposited on such occasions.
At. the conclusion of the ceremony a
benediction was pronounced bv the
Rev. Mr. Martin, and the simple but
rimj7ressive servicop were closed. The

j this morning an earthquake shock of
; considerable force was felt in the eastI

j in Essex and Suffolk were the scenes
i of the greatest disturbance. At Ipswich,
the capital of Suffolk county,
the shock was so severe that the walls
of houses were perceptibly shaken,
plates were rattled and bells rung, j
The people have been thrown into I
| such a state of consternation that busij
hess is for the time suspended. The j
shock was still more seveue at Colchester,
in Essex. The concussion lasted

Men, women and children rushed

The Desperate Deed of a Fashionable
Woman?Driven to Frenzy by Gambling.
Paris, April 16.?Monaco has a
ghastly sensation which promises to
i make it a rival of Monte Carlo as a
theatre for sensational suicides of
mined gamesters. The heroine of
j this latest tragedy was a lady of great
. beauty, distinguished manners and
! aristocratic bearing, wfoo has for
; months occupied the Villa Clementina.
| The mysterious stranger preserved a
strict incognito, being known only as
! "the Countess" to the few acquain[
tances she tnade, and even to her ser|
vants, of whom she engaged quite a
. retinue after her arrival at Monaco.
' Rumor, however, credited her with
. being the wife of a German nobleman
' who occupies a prominent post at the
' Imperial Court, and it was further
[ whispered that her infatuation for the
' gaming table had led her to abandon
' her husband and take up her residence
i "The Countess" was accompanied
bv an infant daughter, asred about two
^ years, to whom she appeared much
' She was a constant habitue at the
Casino, where she played for tremendously
high stakes aud latelx>with
a steady run of ill-luck. She remained
at the roulette table until a very
late hour last night and lost several
thousand francs. This morning the
servants at her villa found "the Coun1
tess" lying in a pool of blood on the
[ floor of her bed-chamber. Still
clutched in her hand was a razor, with
which she had cut her throat, causing
[ almost instantaneous death. On the
bed, which had not been occupied, was
the body of her little child, strangled
! to death by its mother, as was indicated
by the finger marks 011 the child's

reproaches of her hasbaud, had determined
to erid 'thc disgrace by a double

papers in the lady's residence, so that

1 ?For several we^ks past, great ex!
citement has existed in Mecklenburg

went mad and bit McConnell and two
negroes. McConnell had his finger
bitten off, but choked the dog to death.
He lefr at once for Hinkorv to test the
virtues of a madstone owned by a

to a Chicago reporter on the
political situation: "I never saw such
a tideless, waveless, ebbless and flow|
less pool. It is a pool mantled with
.the frog-spit of indifference. There
j are no great issues in which the people
j feel personal interest. If there was
j any danger to our interests?I will
i take a little more of that milk?if there
was any danger of free trade, any
danger of tte~destruction of our industries,
the interest, of course, would be
great and intense and universal, but
nobody believes that the Democracy
can succeed in so changing the tariff."
