lnMMt that hfrrksterl In this city some
IblrlyflVe years afo, that shows how
the nte of soldiers at the polls at that
time was reejanled and bow It precipita
ted a riot In which a nnmttur of promi
nent cltleeas lost tbeir lives.
It was during the Know Nothing es
dtenunt set! on election day a gang Of
plug ngH a f rnm Baltimore came over
here to run the election. Tbere wat a
volunteer police force here amply suffi
cient to control any mob, but Mayor
Magimler became frightened ami ob
tained an order from tbe President for
a company of marines.
Tim story is better told In the follow
ing memorial to Congress, which was
rigned by iery ptomlnent person In tbe
city. It shows that at that time there
whs an earnest protest against the use
ot troops at the polls, and Is as follows:

troduce Into ibis memorial. We do not
desist! to mingle tbe bitterness of party
animosity with the deep Indignation of
(utraetd Imrtnlty but we cauuot
shilt k Ifotn a fearless expreasion of the
truth, and a rlltect spin-al for juMlcs, In
"ttli fotm as you may deem suitable to
the wroeg cummitteel. We Hllude to
tbe snassscru peroelraied In this city on
the first Mi rxlay in June Istt by a body
ot l' Mud Ststes nm tines, ordered out
by ibe sanction of the Executive and
placed ucder the commaml of the Mayor
of this city, under the pretext that a riot
I ben existed at the polls of ooe of the
wards of this city.
"An eleellon was held on that diy for
members of tbe Boards of Aldermen
and Common Council aad other officers
of the Corporation, In the result of
which a strong Interest was felt by the
citlsens generally. The Mayor appeared
to apprehend a disturbance of the peace
on tbe occasion, as he bad been In
formed the previous week that certain
men were expected trom Baltimore for
that purpose, and had declared he
would take steps to meet thorn. The
police force, consisting of forty six otH
cers and men on that day, was amply
sufficient to preserve the pence, aad
bad. with a smaller number of men,
quelled riots on former similar occa
sions. The facts which transpired at
the second precinct of the Fourth Ward
show that It was sufficient, had It been
in place, and composed of proper men.
The iKilla were opened, according to
law, at 7 o'clock a. in.; the voting ue
gan and proceeded quietly until about 9
o'clock, when twelve or fifteen bolster
ous persons arrived near tbe polls, when
J. II. Goddard, a police magiatrate and
a candidate for the office of Alderman
in that ward, sent to tbe Mayor for a
police force to prevent a riot. Neither
the Mayor nor the captain of the Auxil
iary Guard could be found. The per
sons whose approach had caused tbe
apprehension of disturbance soon left
the spot. In a short lime they returned,
when tbey found a eolumn of persons
claiming to be naturalized citlsens,
amounting to several hundred, bavins
posteeeton of the polls, who were ap
proached, in a jesting manner, by those
persons, and after a short time a dis
turbance was commenced by the con
duct of Goddard, who made a demon
stratioa against one of them, and per
haps used personal violence, and an
affray ensued. The first jtiatol Bred was
by Beggolt, Captain of tbe Police,
which waa followed by a few other
shots no person waa seriously hurt
and altltoueh while it coetietwd the
pulls were eiotd, and voting was
stopped, yet in a, ess lata ostler waa
restored, Use nolle were reopened and
voting was resumed. All this occurred

candidate for the othe of A User man

at any time it became so) by the violent

earnest appeal of at tenet owecMcen was
rudely rejected by the Mayor nod his
erltlsors, and he orderttt to Jewre th
room, whilst the tolmireers were de
clared to r too Inefficient for the oc
casion "The marine wetn at length pstaded
tti front of the Mayor i ofllce, and
placing himself at their head he le 1
them to the memorable spot, accompa
nied by a vast t roard of nnermed rlt
Irens, curious to see the result. But
while these movement! wer In pm
ttresa, another movement took pttce
navlBg an Intimate connection with the
events that followed Some young
men residing near the Barracks, hear
Ine the marine were abnit being
matched Into the city, were so excited
by apprehension of danger to their
friends by such a measure, that they
determined to be present, and, If nec
essary, to aid In their defence. There
was a swivel kept at an engine house
near tbe Navy Yard, used for Bring sa
11, which these youths drew out, and
ptotecdlnr with It tot the vicinity of Ibe
anticipated seene of contest, placed it
near the market-house of tbe Northern
Liberties. It turned out thai tbe swivel
was spiked, and was therefore useless.
They passed the matinee on their
match, were seen and uninterrupted by
them, the secret llavlbg, as we believe,
been previously Imparted to tbem that
the swivel was spiked, and entirely
"As soon as the ttuens ami the vast
crowd who accompaolctt them arrived
at the polls where the morning ills
tmbancc took place, the three Judged of
tho election ttnanlmmitlv rewlved to
close the polls, considering It Inconsist
ent with the true principles of free gov
ernment to ask citlsens to exerolse the
right of SuiTtBec under tbe guns and
bayonets of the reeulars. Tltey con
tinued clond until tbe scone of blood
was enacted, and the guilty perpetnt
tors had withdrawn, when those who
had tbe courago to approach threw In
their ballots But few votes, however,
were cast after the massacre.
"Wo will not attempt a minute detail
of the events that followed. The proof
taken on the trial of those persons who
were Indicted as rioters, showed that the
tint tiring was made by the troops that
It was returned by a lew scattering pis
tol shots, when an indiscriminate firing
of the marines followed, directed not
sgafnst the young men at the snivel,
nor against persons who werearmed and
firing on them, nor against th persons
who made or were engage! In ibe morn
log dlsturbsi.cc. for they were not
thtie but against the unarmed crowd
on tbe ride-walk. nealnM Individuals
rusting the trHt at a distance from the
scene, and against persons In the sos
ord story windows ot the opposite
bouses. The number killed, or who
subsequently died of their wound, w is
not less than fourteen total, up war Is
of thirty. Of the victims above enutner
atcd but two were members ot the
American party two were necroes one
was a ctllseu of Baltimore a brakesman
on the railroad cars, who. as well m all
the remainder, were Democrats. Sev
eral of tbem held office In the depart
ments. These statistics show conclu
sively the utter wantonness ot the catas
tropbe, and strengthen, It possible, the
abhorrence, so natural to free-born
Americans, ut tbe use of a standing army
In the midst of a peaceful community.
"After the marines were marched
beck to the City Hall, and were stand
ing under arms on tbe central portico, a
large number ot citizens was attracted
to tbe spot to gaze on the troops, and
while standing peaceably and quietly on
the steps of their own City llall, ware
ordered by tbe mayor to disperse or be
would older the marines to fire on
them' an order quickly obeved, stimu
lated by tbe recent shunu'ter by the
same Instruments, acting under the
"During all these proceedings no riot
act was read tio warning was given to
the people to disperse no blank
cartridges were fired to alarm and drive
tbem away-but without warning,
without a suspicion on their part of the
Intention of the mayor, the officers or
tbe troops to tire upon tbum, tbey were
shot down, some of them standing in
tbeir own doors.
"As if to show the world there must
have been good eautc for this military
execution, under an apparent appre
hension of commotion among tbe people
of tbe city, a corps of light artillery
was ordered here from Fort Mellenry,
and, on their arrival, were armed as in
fantry, giving our city the appearance
of a garrisoned town. Of cowrie, they
returned without having dose any
service, as their visit was uncalled for
by any rational cause.
"1 hat such a transection should be
at once the fouoditloe of the most rigid

The mysteriontdlsappetirtineeof Mtes
Lillian n Porter, the grandntece of
Admiral Porter, has been CrWtrtd up.
It Is now learned that aire was quietly
married In rtslUmore to James J.
O'Biren. who until recently had been
employed as table waiter at the
Arlington Hotel He has also per
formed similar service at the Itlarsrs and
O'ltrlen ami Miss Porter have been
seen in each other's company quite
frequently for several months. lift Is
described as being a tine-looking man,
but is takl to have little, If any, edu
cation. The Impression seems to be
I hat tbe couple have gone to Chicago,
as O'lltlen took with him a letter from
the steward of the White House to the
steward of the Hotel lilchelteu there.
Miss Porter has always been of a
romantic turn of mind and her friends
have been anticipating some such esca

The Loud Speech of
Sometimes a man can say
the most without uttering a
sound, while figuresalways
sllcntofteh sptmk louder
than words. What we read
generally impresses us more
than what we hear, and in
the present instance the im
pression should be a deep
and productive one.
We don't consider it any
use to make figures demon
strative of what we are
ready to do on Water Cool
ers, Refrigerators and Baby
Carriages. If you don't
want cither of these articles
price wouldn't tempt you.
But il you do it is enough
for you to remember that
"Lansburgli is ready to sell,
regardless ol competitive
figures.'' We won't even
consider profit. We'll climb
way down to cost and there
we'll stop. The man who
tramples cost under his feet
13 a very unreliable mer
chant. In Furniture Tapestries
we will make the following
From $1 lo 02c.
do 31.36 to 76c.
do $3 to ?1.5.
do iJJl to f 1.-15.
In Frilled Edge Lace
From $a to ?3.05.
do ?0.&O to $8.25.
In Fine Nottingham Lace
From ll.'iS lo We.
do f 1 to sfti.&O.
do f I 60 to fS.75.
do if5.no to ftS.25.
If jou are buying any
thirg, from Rustic Lawn
Fixings to the most elabo
rate and costly Sideboards,
you'll find the pruning blade
sticking In every price tag.
