present. The completion or this new link, which
has been much retarded by bad weather and
other unfavorable circumstances, will place Lon?

Bg of the old sea captain, Captain John Alex?

Murderers, remain in prison. Dr. A. N. Brock

age and softening or thc brain, publishes a card

-The Duke orNorrolk, on whom Mr. Gladstone
Intends to conter the garter vacant by the death
of Lord Derby, is Premier Peer or England, and
hereditary earl marshal. His ancestor was the
first Roman Catholic who took his scat in the
Bouse or Lords after the emancipation act of
1820. The dukedom dales from the fifteenth cen?
tury, aud the Howards are a byword for noble
and lofty lineage. The present duke, a young
Bin ortwo or three and twenty, isa son or the
lan peer by the sister of Loni Lyons, formerly
British Minister at Washington, and now at Paris.
B s sister. Lady Victoria, is married to Mr. Ilope
Scott, whose first wire was granddaughter or Sir
Wt'rer Scott, being daughter or the great novel?
et's biographer, Lockhart. Mr. Hope-Scott's
daug.ner by Miss Lockhart is the only direct rep
le-eututl.'e or Scott. Abbotsford now belongs
to Ur. Ho ?e-Scott, who lias made a rortune at the
Parliamentary bar, the most lucrative branch or
?bc professlou in England. His earnings have, it
ta computed, often reached ?i5,oooaud jcio.ooua
jear. Some years ago he joined the communion
af the Church or Rome, and, la common with the !
Duchess'of Norfolk, also originally a Protest?
ant, is a very devoted supporter of that faith.
-General Butler's speech in thc llorac, on Wed?
nesday, in reply to Mr. Dawes, was a \ery care?
fully prepared document. Contrary to his gen
cral practice the speech had been print di before?
hand and he read from slips. The occasion was
one <?f very great interest, and members gathered
about him as well as they could. Ile spoke almost
two hours, nd aside from the personalities and
his allusions to Mr. Dane's political life, there is
nothing in the speech ont a grand array of lig?
ures. These confront the figures marshalled by
Mr. Dawes, and the only question is. who made
tho figures lie. After alt Mr. Huller's effort, to
which" Mr. Dawes listened attentively am. of
which he took full notes, thc latter calmly and
deliberately stated his purpose to reiterate what
he hail already said, and declared that he would
prove the correctness of his statement. While
he spoke thc members gathered around him from
all parts of the hall, and the best order prevailed.
When he sat down members went forward to
congratulate him. If Mr. Butler received any
congratulations, no one in thc gallery saw it. Mr.
Dawes replied on Thursday anil '-bottled" Ben.
-In place of appearing before the gold panic
committee on Wednesday, Mr. Abel lt. Corbin
sent a letter, which was read, regretting his ina?
bility to attend on account or ill health. He said
he hoped to be able to bc present on Thursday or
Friday, and adds that lt ls his earnest desire to
appear and testify. Three withesscs were exam?
ined to-day, Messrs. Magruder, Wyman and Bige?
low, clerks in the office of the comptroller or thc
currency, who were sent to Sew York on the 24th
of September to examine into thc condition of
thc Tenth National Hank. This bank, it appears
from thc evidence, certified to checks during thc
gold panic to tho extent of $29,000,000, though
the cashier claims that the bank held the certi?
fied checks of other banks for a good portion of
the amount. The committee have discussed thc
propriety of allowing Mrs. Corbin and Mrs. Grant
to make affidavits and submit thom to thc com?
mittee, covering the points of testimony which
seek to involve them, but no conclusion has ticen
reached, and lt is proba'-!? that neither will tic
summoned or required to submit statements. Thc
evidence taken and to be taken, lt is believed,
will be all that is needed.
Licensed Kui u.
A Ot accompaniment to the phosphate
"monopoly" bill would be. "free trade" in
gambling, as proposed in the bill introduced in
the House of Representatives one week ago.
The bill provides that all games of chance,
or any banking game, whether the same bo
played for money, checks, creditor any; other
representative of value, shall bc licensed, and
that gambling without a license shall bc pun?
ished by line or imprisonment.
Tlie member who introduced the bill may
think that gambling cannot be prevented,
and that what cannot be cured may, at least,
be made to do its part in healing thc finan?
cial wounds of the State. There is no force
in this reasoning. At present, gambling is
carried on ki defiance of thc law. Why tho
gambling fraternity are so seldom punished,
why they enjoy a practical immunity from
the penalties of their calling, it is not hard
to see. Their interest is made the interest
of the watch-dogs of the law, whom, in
these days, it is not hard to muzzle. Yet
gambling is necessarily conducted with cau?
tion and in secret. They who desire to risk
their shining dollars or greasy greenbacks
ou the hazard of the die, must seek the
gambling saloon. The gambling spider does
not stretch its web in the public streets, for
the benefit of the provincial fly.
There are many born gamblers who will
play faro, roulette or rouge et noir, though
a score of laws and a brigade of policemen
stood between them and ruin, and for their
accommodation gambling saloons will always
be provided. But the moment that gamb?
ling is legalized, the moment that gambling
is licensed by a law of the State, the faro
banks, and the keno banks, and the roulette
tables will be set at every corner, opening
their doors to the weak as well as the vicious.
We have a startling case in point in Mobile
and New Orleans, where the Radicals licens?
ed gambling, as is proposed to be done here.
The result was that 'he signs and posters of
the gambling hells were found in every
street; the shouting of the gamblers and
their dupes was heard day and night; thou?
sands of persons who had never entered a
gambling den before, were shown the road
to ruin. In New Orleans, it was found that
men of all ages and all conditions would
drop in "just for a minute or two," to try
their luck. Embezzlement and fraud ra?
pidly increased, and uow thc Radical
City Council acknowledge that unless thc
gambling law be repealed it will bc thc death
of their party. It was the same thing in
Mobile. And itt both cities the colored peo?
ple suffered fearfully. Saloons opened for
their especial benefit, drained away every
cent they possessed, or could borrow or could
steal. They were led into temptation by
their Radical brethren, and they did not,
could not, resist. .
The evil consequences of a gambling law
cannot easily be exaggerated ; aud wc hope
that the bill now before the Legislature will
be promptly and decisively rejected.
The Drift of thc Tide.
Under the auspices of the Radical party
the cause of consolidation is advancing with
significantly rapid strides. The tendency to
centralization was always dormant in Radi?
cal policy, and the rapid development of thc
idea manifest in the proceedings of the pres?
ent Congress is only the natural result of
the monopoly of power which the party
at present eojoys. The practical effect of
the Fifteenth Amendment is simply to throw
into the hands of the Federal Government
the complete ultimate control of the internal
polity of the States. It can hardly fail to bc
followed by its natural corollaries; and out
of this apparently small fountain-head must
How, in time, the broad controlling principle
of Congressional interference with every re?
served right of every State, North as well as
The second section of the Fifteenth
Amendment-"Congress shall have power to
"enforce this article by appropriate legisla?
tion"-cannot fail to prove a most fertile
text in the hands of Republican interpreters.
It is very evident that there is no logical rea?
son why interference with the right of each
State to control the voting privileges of its
citizens should be legitimate, and interfer?
ence with other internal regulations should
be illegitimate. There is nothing easier
th an the creation of precedents; and so ioni^ I
as cvry link in the chain is made to prove
its successor, there is no practical difficulty
iu pushing conclusions to any desired extent.
That the future policy of the Radical party
is fast coming to this complexion, the whole
drift of recent Congressional action assures
us. The introduction in the House of the
bill to declare null and void such acts of thc
Legislatures and State Conventions as be?
came laws by virtue of the votes of merni HTS
0? the s? m \ who arc disqualified by the
third section of the Fourteenth Amendment,
wiiile it lias immediate bearing on the Ten
uessee State Convention, whose action it ia
intended to nullify, reaches further in its
ultimate effect, and indicates plainly enough
a deep-seated intention on the part of Con
gross to allow no independent action on thc
part <if any State, whicl' may, in the small?
est degree, interfere with the dominant pur?
poses of this most rampant Republicanism.
There are indications in Washington of an
effort, and probably a successful one, to re?
move, by a general law, tho property quali
flcation imposed on negro voters in New
York, and tims evade the effect of the re
jection of the Fifteenth Amendment by the
Democratic Legislature of that State. These
and similar signilicant straws leave but little
doubt of the drift of the tide; and thc ques?
tion for the country to decide now is, whether
thatiide, carrying with it as it surely does,
a greater influx of corruption, oppression
and all manner of political wickedness than
the United States has ever before known in
its high places, shall be permitted to over?
whelm us with its noxious flood; or whether
the reaction shall atlast set in, and the party
of real, and not pretended and unequal, free?
dom ride triumphantly into power upon the
backs of a truly progressive Democracy.
WE print this morning an interesting let?
ter from our Washington correspondent, giv?
ing some details of the debate in the House
of Representatives on the South Carolina
election case, and explaining the status of
the contest between Wallace anil Simpson at
the time of writing. The dispatches of last
night indicate that nothing further can be
done in behalf of Mr. Simpson until his dis?
abilities arc removed.
