undoubtedly have something to do with
1872, but, after all, these will be of minor
showing iv that contest. The great ques
tions, talk as we may now, will be the very
same, modified of courso by events, but
the same questions that have beeu great ia
the past—on tho one hand the carrying
forwurd by the Kepublicans of tho grand
policy of giv ing equal rights to all, of meet
ing all the obligations of the nation,
whether io tho bcstowment and securing
of civil rights to all her children, colored or
whito, or whether in paying the national
indebtedness—and on the other hand tha
Democratic party fighting, not for conquest
of ideas, not for progress in liberty and
fair play, not for placing high the credit
ofthe nation, but simply for the place of
"In that contest affairs in tho South are
to be tho one prominent question. All
others will dwarf beside this. The Demo
crats will then have to make answor for
the organization and continuance of the
Ku-Klux Klan, and their tens of thou
sands of outrages. How will they an
swor ? Looking at this matter as dispas
sionately as we can, wo believe that the
Democrats, even if they ever had a chance
of winning in 1872, have flung that
chance away by the point of the dagger
iv the South.
"And not only is this matter of the
Ku-Klux to bo considared in the Demo
crats' own clogging of their steps, but
also the other mistakes they are contin
ually makiug in the South. Everywhere
they go they blunder."
The efforts of this country to bring
about a settlement between Spain and the
four republics of western South America,
with which the former power was some
years in active warfare, are partially ap
proved by an armistice to be signed at
Washington. It is some time since the
Spanish fleet was repulsed in its assaults
and then recalled by the stress of civi'
war. But tbe hostilities thus suspended
have never been formally reconciled, aud
the steps to be taken now inaugurate a
measure of much importance to the pros
perity of tho republics.
The cotton crop now arriving at the
cotton ports of the South promises to bo
the largest since the famous one of 1869
--'6O. Tho Savannah Republican, basing its
estimate on the number of bales already
receiv*d, says that tho crop will reach
3,750,000 to 4,000,000 bales. By reasoD
of its increased railroad connections, Savan
nah is fast taking position as one of the
principal cotton ports of the South. This
large crop establishes the facts that the
freedman is willing to work, and that the
land, being divided among a large number,
is more cart-fully cultivated.
The results of the local and municipa
elections iv all parts of tho country still
continue unfavorable to the Domocrats.—
In Albany counly, New York, the Repub
licans have made gains. They have carried
Jersey City, which was decidedly Demo
cratic last year. They have elected tbeir
mayor in Paterson. They havejrained su
pervisors in several counties in New Jer
sey, and, for the first time in many years,
have a majority in Somerset county. In
the Western States, excepting Missouri,
where the Republicans are divided, the re
ports of Republican gains are also general.
The pulitical canvass in the District of
Columbia is of the moat spirited character.
We entertaiu no doubt as to the result. —
The Democratic party there, with tho stu
pidity that characterizes all its movements,
headed its ticket with R. T. Merrick, known
at Chicago, where he resided, as one ofthe
fiercest and most blatant Copperheads.
While Northern men feel kindly toward
the great body of the Southern army, they
cannot forgive such traitors as Merrick,
who invoked a struggle in which they
were too mean aud cowardly to take part.
The work of the Joint High Commis
sion is said to be progressing satisfactorily,
and will be completed by the first cf May.
The statement as to the details of their I
agreement points, not to tho settlement of
the Alabama claims, but to a basis of set
tlement, leaving the details to be adjusted
on this basis hereafter. This, of course,
involves tbe speedy settlement of tbe diffi
culty on the proposed basis. The fishery
question is understood to be fully disposed
of—our Government to pay Canada a
fixed sum for the concession of full fishing
privileges to American seamen.
The Albany Law Journal tells this story :
'A witness was examined before a judge,
in a case, who required him to repeat the
precise words spokeD. The witness hesi
tated until be riveted the attention of the
entire court upon him; then, fixing his
eyes earnestly upon the judge, began: I
'May it please your honor, you lie, you I
steal, and you get your liviug by stealiug.'
The face of the judge reddened, and he im
mediately said : 'Turn to the jury, air.' "
Mrs. Kneas, of Cleveland, had more

when I was on tho old W. Sc
Missouri, I ran what wis known

that title, of tho Gentleman's
iming East. The drovers, when
i market with their cattle, al

and to prevent their trespassing

lis I took up the Missourian's ticket ho
eated to me his threats against his oppo
it's life, and proposed a duel in the
rgage-car with bowie knives. I man
id, however, to silence the half-madden -
man, and a friend sitting in tho same
seat with him, and nearest the aisle of the
car, promised to sco that he should not
leave his seat and attack the Kentuckian.
There being no more stops to mako, I
curled myself up in a chair in the baggage
car for a nap, aud dozed comfortably till
awakened by tho rattling of the bell-rope
overhead, and the whistle of the engine
calling for breaks to be put down. Catch
ing up my laDtern I opened the car door
and looked out, but found nothing but
darkness thej most intense. Tbe traiu
having stopped I got off and ran to the
engine, asking the engineer in a half-sleep
mauner where we were and why we had
stopped ? "We're in tho Grover Tunnel,"
he replied, "and I stopped because the
Kll-rope was pulled."
The Grover tunnel was about a mile in
igth, through which wo passed nearly
all the way at half-speed, and with the
steam shut off from the cylinders, thero
being a down grade at the entrance, which
was sufficient to nearly give us headway
to carry us through. When the engineer
saw tbe light at the further end of the tun
nel, however, he was accustomed to put on
steam, and it was just at the time, he told
me, that the bell was pulled, being the sig
nal for him to stop.
(By this time my brakesman had been
ound the outside of tbe train, and fiud
g all the couplings right, and not dis
vering anything wrong externally, I
,ye the signal to go ahead, as it wns dan
gerous to stay in the tunuel. As we came
out the daylight was just breaking, and,
with a brakesman, I started through the
lain to find out, if possible, who pulled
Most of the passengers wero asleep in
ie furward cars as we passed through,
at some few were awake, who told me
lat the pulling of tho bell came from be
nd, from some of the rear cars. I made
ie trip through the entire train, with the
cception of the drovers' car, and yet the
account said the bell was pulled from still
further in the rear. It was daylight as
the brakesman and myself crossed on to
the platform of the last car. After un
locking the door, we essayed to push it
open, but some weight against it prevented
us. With our strength, however,
we pushed it open, and found tho cause oi
Against the bottom of tho door lay tho
Kentuckian, his body twisted and rolled
up into a distorted heap, as if he had been
overtaken by a fit. Supposing him to be
in a drunken stupor, I raised him to his
seat, and then begau to loosen his collar
and neck-tie. As I did so I noticed a
small livid bluo line running exactly
around his throat, and cutting deeply into
the flesh ; his face also was of a deadly hue ;
and frightened at, I knew gut what, I sent
the brakesman for a physician whom I
knew was on the train. As soon as he
came and had handled the Kentuckian, he
exclaimed, "The man's dead—his neck is
broken—tho man has been murdered."
Immediately I remembered the fight of
the preceding evening between the now
dead man and the Missourian, anil telling
the doctor of my fear tbat the latter had
kept his word and murdered the Kentuck
ian, we agreed to make some movement
toward ! the detection of the murderer.
' I Going to the rear we found tho Missour- I
, ian curled up on his seat, his friend also f
being on the outside seat, aud both being
, apparently asleep.
As we looked upon the Missourian, we
heard him mutter, "I'll kill him, I'll kill
him," as if half asleep and awake. We
' were turning away when the doctor's
, quick eye caught a glimpse of something
. the man held in his hand, and reaching
. over gently drew it from his fingers, ex
claiming, "and this was what the deed was
done with," holding up to me a thin leath
er string, about the size of a small whip
; lasb, and used by drovers ss a belt around
their waist, and also to hobble an unruly
ox, or to tie the legs of a calf.
As we left the drunken man, the doctor
eaid: "That brute has crept up behind
\ the Kentuckian, when in the darkness of
. I the tunnel, and throwing this strap around
i his throat, has jerked his head back and
i broken his neck at once. Tho body has
tlitn fallen forward against the door while
I I the murderer was groping his way back
' to his seat, and has accidentally caught
. the bell-rope in his drunken grasp and
I To make a long story short, the Mis- |
I sourian was arrested on a charge of mur
i der, tried and convicted, the circumstantial
I ovidenco beiDg very strong. I went to
visit him several times in his condemned
' I cell, acd somehow or another the declara-
I I lions of innocence the fellow made to me
shook my belief in his guilt, although I
had witnessed strongly against him at his
1 trial, and at last I found myself fully con
' firmed in my new belief of his entire inno
■ I cence. I could see no way to save him,
however, and five weeks of his time on
' earth had rolled hy, and yet the mystery
i was as great a one as ever.
' One morning about that time I was
I ruuniug the same train, only, as it hap-
: il.r' murdered Kentuckun.
It io happened that he occupied the
.same seat as tho Keutuckiuii had done,
and I was also in my old placo in Ihe bag
gage car. When exactly in the same
placo in the tunnel, just when the engineer
had put on steam to carry ns through, the
I bell-rope again rattled, and the engineer
whistled for the brakes. Springing lo my
feet, I ran to the rear car, firmly persuaded
that now I could solve this mystery.
Reaching it, I found the superintendent
sitting back in his scat, wilh his hand to
his throat, gasping fur breath. One or
two passengers wine attempting to be of
some use to him, hut he could only moan
I tightly to his throat,
he recovered sufficiently to tako
away, and then I saw the light,
i mark which I had seen beforo,
I tho exact similar position, on
of the murdered Kentuckian. —
iperintondent got over tho shuck
ded to tell us how he received the
id of its fearful effects. 110 had
eep, and was awakened by the
iring the tunnel. Half asleepand
ke, he stepped to tho car door and
iking, or trying to look, through
nly, and without any warning, ho
pa slipped tinder his throat, and

thrown violently into a corner of
aystery was solved at last. The
