DEATH UOKtllQ SETHOCB.
Another ex-Democratio candidate
for the Presidency has been called
away the third ia a few weeks.
Horatio Seymour, the statesman
selected in 1SCS by the National
Democracy, reunited after the sep
aration occasioned by the Civil
War, died yesterday at the
residence of his sister, Mrs. lloscoe
Oonkling, in Utica, N. Y.
lie was a statesman of the old
school, oi the period immediately
preceding the war, and was like many
of his contemporaries, well equipped
for public life, added to which be
was a man of scholarly tastes and an
active philanthropist. Governor Sey
niour though a very earnest Detno-
. erat, was beloved by all the
people of New York who had
learned to know him for his
purity cf character and his earnest
labors in behalf of the weak and the
erring! lie was Governor of that
State during tho war, and although
he differed with tho Lincoln admin
istration aa to many of its policies,
he was in sympathy with its purpose
to save tho ''Union, and did every
thing he could to equip and for
ward troops to the field. But a
just and a fair man he interfered
when the Federal Government made
demands upon the pooplo greater
than were inado on thoso of other
States, and although he condemned
and succeeded in putting down the
bloody draft riot that is notable for
the excesses of those who partici
pated in it, his sympathies
were with his oppressed fellow-citizens
whose frenzy ho
calmed by his promise of justice.
For a time the Republican press
sought to mako capital of this riot
and to cover him with the ignominy
of a traitor, but the better clement
of that party frowned upon so base
less and wanton an attempt
to smirch the character of the
most exalted citizen of the
State and it availed nothing.
Gov. Seymour supported MoClellan
for the Prosidency.in 18(J4, and made
a strong canvass of New York State
for him. ,In 1868 he defeatod Pen
dleton and Chase, both of whom were
close contestants, for the nomination
for the Presidency before the Na
tional Convention at New York. He
was chairman of that convention,
and very positively declined to be a
candidate, but, while temporarily
absent, Ex-Gov. Seymour of Mis
souri being in the chair, he was nom
inated amid a scene of unparalleled
enthusiasm and was compelled to
accept and make the race. Gen.
Frank Blair of Missouri, a gallaut
soldier and former free-soil Demo
crat, was tho candidate for the Vice
Presidenoy. Pitted against Gen.
Grant, the hero cf tho North, and,
notwithstanding the Southern States
were all of them in the hands of the
constructionists and carpet-baggers,
Gov. Seymour camo within
303,458 votes of Grant's popu
lar majority.. This proved his
personal popularity and the high
character ho had with tho masses.
At the close of this memorable con
test he declared it his purpose never
again to take part in political affairs,
and he adhered to this resolution,
yielding occasionally so far as
to submit to interviews on
leading juo3tions, and to answer
the letters of intimato political
friends seeking his advice.
He was a friend of the unfoitunate
classes, and was an active member
of the Prison lleform Association,
serving on its leading committees
and making several important re
ports, whion had the effect of induc
ing tho Federal Government to send
delegates to tho International Prison
Heforin Congress, of which the well
known philanthropist, Dr.Winans of
Baltimore, was secretary and
-chief promoter. Gov. Seymour also
took a groat interest in the farmers
of New York and identified himself
closely with them, being a member of
one of thoir strongest clubs. II 9
wrote much on agriculture and ques
tions ot tariff and was always ready
to make his great storehouse of ex
perience ana knowledge available
to the people. Although out of pol
itics he did not lose his interest
ia political affairs, nor did bis anx
iety for the success of Democratic
principles lessen in the least degree.
Profoundly convinced that the gov
ernment could be most wisely ad
ministered under and by them he
hailed the success of Mr. Cleveland
with great satisfaction as justi
fying the hopes ho had cher
ished in tho face of de
feat and usurpation. New York
was proud of Gov. Seymour, as ono
of the ablest and wisest of her
statesmen, and tho other States will
unite with her in mourning his
death as a great loss to tho repub
lic, of which he was one ot the most
illustrious oitizons.
The New York Ilcrald calls at
tention to the fact that Mr. Eustis, in
his democratic attack on the Demo
cratic administration, raid: "I have
received communications from an
other cashier of a bank in which he
gives the startling information that
country merohants in the interior of
those States are to-day refusing
to receive silver dollars unless
it be at a discount." "Does not," asks
the Herald, "this ridiculous United
States Senator see that he is, in a
street boy's phrase, 'giving away'
tho eighty-cent silver swindle, when
he makes his confession that even
the country merchants in Louisiana
and Texas, like sensible - men, want
a full dollar, and 'refuse to receive
silver dollars unless it be at a dis
count?' "

experience in telephone matters. He

mott cunningly put into use;" teat in
tho variom States local companies of

Bell company not appearing in the
or.anizitions. "But," said Mr. Back
with, "no doubt an autopsy could de
velop the fait tb a', the Bell csmpany
is the chief proprietor in all these com
panies." He laid he filed the first suit
ajainst the Bell company in Memphis,
ai that company bad a chartered ex
istence there, but subsequently a re
organization was effected and the Bell
company's interest was bidden. Mr.
Beckwith tays this plan is adopted to
avoid Baits, bat that the company can
not afford to evado the government
suit, as such conduct would be equiva
lent to a cor.f )Bg:oa of guilt.

Biographical.
Horatio Seymour was born in Onon
daga county, N. Y , May 21. 1810, edu
cated at Genera (New Hobart) Col
lege, N. Y., and tbe Military Academy
at Middlttown, Ct. ; studied law under
the late Chief Justice Broneon; was
admitted to the Oneida bar at Utica,
and entered at once upon a successful
practice. In 1341 he wui elected a
member of the Legislative Assembly,
and held the position till 1845, being
then elected Speaker cf the Assembly.
For the next five yeais his party were
ia the ministry. In 1850 Mr. Seymour
was nominated unsuccessfully fr
Governor of the S'uti at Utica. He
was renominated in 1852, and elected
bv large majority. During his term
cf office he vetoed the prohibitory
liquor bill, popularly known as the
"Maine Law, which had passed both
houses of the Legislature, and this act
brought down upon him a ttorm of in
dignation which caused bis defeat at
the election of 1854. He returned to
private life, and endeavored for the
seven yeann tbat followed to heal tbe
divisions in his party. In 18(12 he was
again nominated for the Governor
ship of New York, in opposition to
Gen. Wadswoith, and after a keen
contest defeated the Republican can
didate. Gov. Seymour took his seat
January 1, 1803, and adopted it very
conservative line of policy. On the
outbreak of the Civil War, when the
invaiien of Pennsylvania took plane,
in June, 1803, be promptly forwarded
more tban tlio quota cf militia re
quired by tu)"Governor d that State,
though he sorely oOended tho Repub
lican party by his opposition to the
coascription bill passed by Congress,
which gave the President power to
call out for military service all able
bodied men between the ages of
eighteen and forty-five. The popular
opposition to the conscription was so
violent in New York that it gave rise
to a series of riots, during which more
than 30,000 soldiers of the regular
army, besides a large militia force,
bad been concentrated in and around
the city. Prevleusly to the outbreak,
in which the Irish Democrats took a
prominent pait, grave apprehensions
of a terious collision between the
State of New York and the Federal
Government had been entertained at
Washington. But when the riots
took place Gov. Seymour, eeoing that
the supreme power must be obeyed
at all hazards, used his utmost exer
tions to allay the fearful storm pro
voked by the conscription. Tbe peace
Democrats wished him to act in such
a way as to emknriuis the govern
ment, which he could net have done
without taking pait with tbe rioters,
and that would have beon an overt
act of rebellion. At the expiration ot
his term of service.he retired to privato
life, and was not again a candidate for
publio honors until July, 1808, when
he ai nominated by the National
Democratic Convention for President
of the United States, but he was de
feated by Gen. Grant at the election
cf November of tbnt year. Wben the
great effort was made iu 1871 to purify
tbe politics of New York from the
corruption into which they had fallen,
Ex-Gov. Seymour consented to be
come a candidate for the Legislature
from one of the New York districts, in
opposition to one of the corrupt can
didates of the ring, but was defeated,
since which time be has taken no
active part in politics, but has given
his attention to his private affairs.
His only publications are a number of
public addresses and speeches and
several Stat 9 papers.

THE DILKE-IRAWFORD SCANDAL.
Dllhe'a Kseaps I'nder a Teebnlral
riea.
London, February 12. Although
Sir Charles Dilke rsenped nnder the
technical plea that Mrs. Crawford's
unsworn cor fission was Insufficient
evidence, the whole tenor of the trial
baa produced a profound and univer
sal conviction of Dilke'a gnilt, Jus
tice Butts, in summing np, desciibed
the respondent's statement as clear,
distinct and substantial, and said tbey
compelled him to conclude tbat the
adultery charged wm actually com
mitted. If the woman had been put
in the witness box uud had given the
the same testimony there would
I ave been evidence sgnlust
Dilke. Dilke's position was, further
dainaiind by herrofiuining from giving
evidence. The Attoriiey-Geneial's
defense, "Were we to put Dilke in the
witness-box his cross-exiimlnatinn
would be on the indiscretions of life,
from which no man is free," wns taken
as a frank admission th.tt Dilke was
unable to give an explanation. The
part of Mrs. Crawford's confession
describing the depth of the debauch
ery between Dilke and her is unfit for
publication. The trial has caused a
painful impression throughout the
country in regard to the state of to
ciety morals.

candles and bombs, which were
fired, the latter being heard

principal streets. Ct ler features of
the carnival will be introduced next
week. Tbe palace walls are still solid.
