COLUMBIA, August 22.
Tbe convention was opened this morning,
at naif-past eleven, with prayer by the Rev. E.
J. Adams. Then followed a long Interval of
walting for the return of the committee on
credentials. The crowd, meantime, heine
sept In a good humor by a vigorous perform?
ance of "Shoo Fly" and other equally patriotic
and artistic melodies by the band. At twelve,
the committee on credentials returned, and
reported tbat they had had contesting delega?
tions from six counties, Beaufort, Charleston,
Coller?n, Lexingtou, Chesterfield and Union.
Theyjpported In favor of Smalls's delegation j
from Beau lort, Mackey's from Charleston. Mc?
Intyre's from Colleton, Hayes's from Lexing?
ton, Donaldson's from Chesterfleld and Mob
ley's from Union. In all these cases, the dele?
gations recommended by tbe committee are
understood to be favorable to Moses. So much
of the report as referred to the uncontested
counties was then adopted, and the roll of
those counties called, and Chairman E.liott
announced that thenceforward, until the per?
manent organization was effected, none but
i those from tbe uncontested couti t'es should
be allowed to vote.
The question ol seating the Mobley delega?
tion from Union was Art t taken up. The roll
was called on this question, and the delega?
tion were admitted >v seven to two. The
question on the L.xlneton contest was next
tallen, and the Hayes delegation was admitted
unanimously. B. J. Donaldson's delegation
j from Chesterfield was admitted by an unanl
r mons vote. ? McIntyre's delegation from Colle?
The Beaufort contest being reached, s walis
submitted a minority report from the commit?
tee on credentials, In favor of admitting both
the Whipper and Smalls delegation, giving to
each half the Tote ot the county. Rai ney
made a powerful speech in favor of this propo?
sition, explaining the merits of the contest.
Cardozo spoke against the proposition, claim?
ing that Whipper represented only eighteen
votes In the county convention, and Smalls
eighty-three. The discussion was continued
at great length by Swails, Cardozo, Ral ney
and Jamieson, the last named making a full
display of his usual antics, until called to or?
der at least twenty times, and gavelled down
by ttiechalrman, Jamieson still claiming the
floor and calling out "Mr. Chairman," amid
much confusion and laughter. Whitiemore
moved that Jamieson be allowed to speak- ton
minutes upon any subject whatever except
the matter under discussion. This sally pro?
voked roars of laughter. Cardozo move 1 to
close all debate ou the subi set. This waa c ar?
ried, and the question being put to a vow, tho '
majority report was adopted, and the Smalls
delegation was admitted:
: TSE CHABI ?STON' CASE :
-. was then takenup, fifteen minutes being al
t lowed to each faction. Much filibustering by
Balney,Jones, Jamieson and Maxwell followed,
which consumed the entire half hour allowed
the contestants. Then Ralney, as chairman
of the committee on credentials, was allowed
one hour taspeak in favor of his report. He
made a violent speech In support of the
Mackey delegation, and denounced the course
of the Bowenltes as Iraudulent, deceptive and
Irregular. He glossed over the conduct of the
Kaokeyites In seizin:; and carrying off the
ballot-boxes of the Bowenltes, ao l loused to
recognize any calls In Charleston County save
those of B. H. Cain. Upon the conclusion of
his speech the convention, with one dissent?
ing voice, adopted the report, seating the
On motion of Cardozo a committee consist
in; of one fr??m each Congressional District
and three from the State at large was ordered
on permanent organization. The chair ap?
pointed F. L. Cardozo, S. J. Lee, B. F. Whit?
iemore, H. J. Maxwell, R. H. Cain, C. D.
Kayne and J. S. Mobley.
The convention then took a recess tor one
hour. It reassembled at 4.40 P. M., with Sam?
uel J. Lee in the chair. The complete roll
-/as then called. The committee on
reported In lav -.of R. B. Elliott as president;
Whlttemore, A. Smalls, Cardozo and T. J.
Mackey as vice-presidents; T. J. Minion and
C. Smith as secretaries; J. E. Green and C. D.
Lowndes as sergeants-at-arms, ani M. C.
Long as doorkeeper. These officers were
elected almost unanimously.
Elliott being conducted to the chair by Mob?
ley, Maxwell and E. W. M. Mackey, returned
thanks in a brief speech.
Immediately on the conclusion of Elliott's
speech, E. W. M. Mackey moved to proceed to
NOMINATION OF GOVERNOR,
bot withdrew his motion to allow Cardozjto
make a motion.
Cardozo. moved to appoint a committee ol
eleven to draft definite rules for the govern?
ment of the Republican party. Carried.
Maxwell moved to appoint a committee of
seven on the platform. Carried.
Maxwell moved to Invite the State officers
to lae privileges of the floor. T. J. Mackey
moved to include editors. Carried.
The question then recurred un E. W. M.
Mackey's motion to go into nomination Xyr
Governor, and lt was carried.
Frc-:asked how the nominations were to
be made ?
Elliott replied: "By the call of the roll and a
Small;: moved to require a two-thirds major?
ity to nominate.
Elliott decided that the proposition could
not be put. After some hesitation, much log?
rolling and a little music by the band. Small*
said that they all appeared to be waiting for
some one to begin. He would lead off by nom?
inating the Hon. Samuel W. Mellon. [Cheers.]
Jamieson nominated Marita R. Delany.
[Laughter.] Maxwell, in a speech of some
length, nominated F. J. Moses, Jr. [Tremen?
dous and long continued cheering.
Jones seconded the nomination amid re?
newed applause. He defended the over-is?
sues of pay certificates by Moses on the ground
that they were Issued to men who had been
hunted from their homes In the up-country
by the Ku-Klux. He was lrequently inter?
rupted by applause. Tbe speech at, least con?
verted Jamieson, who Immediately rose ?nd
'spoke in favor of. Mose?, deserting his own
nominee (Delan}',) and advocating Moses a
native Carolinian or hlgli lamily, characl

tiou, bad come forward to lead the poor col

Cain followed in favor of Moses, defend

heard that if they nominated Moses th
would be a bolt; but if the threat was to
made that If a majority ot thal convent
nominated the man ot their choice the mlnoi
would bolt, he would throw down the gaunl
to those threatener and fight it through l
campaign. It was the fight of the laborl
men of South Carolina against the bond he
era and speculators. The money which ml;
have been spent by Moses had gone to t
poor men ot Carolina. He defied his opi
nents lo prove that he issued a million of d
lars in pay certificates; but, if he had, th
bad not been paid, and if they had been pal
the money had cone to poor men. Brit
were being freely used upon the other sic
but he felt a pride In declaring that his can*
date had never bargained to pay a dollar 1
his nomination. He was proud to say th
Moses had never coquetted with the Demc
racy, had never published love-letters biddii
for their support, had never made any ov?
tures of any kind lo the Democrats. He hi
been a fearless and consistent Republican; hi
been ostracised therefor, and had lost mai
things dear to the beart of man. He hi
heard it said that a bolt was already organl
ed, but, he said, let lt come ! Il his np poner
could convince the bone and sinew ol Sou
Carolina ot the claims ot their candidates, I
would be satlsQed. This was the poor mei
fight, and they proposed to make ll BO. Win
Hoses was nominated, tho people would ha1
school-houses for their children, their rlgb
secured, taxes reduced, and money Inti

was honestly done. Ia conclusion, he said I
was for Moses, morning, no >n and night, an
If necessary, midnight.
Allen, of Greenville, said he desired to r
iterate every word spoken by Cain.
Jamieson moved to allow each speaker thlr
Tne chair said that would occupy too lon,
T. J. Mackey begged the convention not I
adopt the mle. It would prolong the questlc
of a nomination over night, and lt was part i
an organized plan lo gain time to purchai
voles. Jamieson then withdrew his motioi
Neagle then rose to nominate a gentlemu
whose claims, he said, devolved the dui
upon ibe Stale lo elect bim. He had no Ii
tnntion of attacking any bo Jv. Moses was h
firm personal friend, and rather than ai tao
him he would throw the mantle of charil
over him to conceal his nakedness. Th
gentleman he would nominate was one of th
most brilliant men of his age in tne Stat*
or in i he country. Born In a lree State
rocked in the cradle ol' liberty, raised as a
abolitionist, trained lu the proudest universlt
of the country, and learned in the classic
and the law, when tbe tocsin was sounded h
left all bis brilliant pursuits and opportunities
shouldered his musket as a private in a Massa
chusetts regiment, and tramped with then
against the slaveholder.-,' rebellion. [Cheers.
He knew that his name bad bean iu silled; bu
he could refute every aspersion against bli
fame. It wa3 only charged against hin
that be was a member or the financia
board, and, therefore, supposed to be respon
slble for the over-Issue of bonds, if sue)
had been made; but he would show that ih<
financial board bad nothing to do with tb?
issues of bonds, except as to threo mlllloi
seven hundred thousand dollars. The finan
dal board had nothing to do with Issuing tb?
conversion bonds. The law distinctly sale
thal they should be signed by the Governor
countersigned by the treasurer, and Issued bj
tne treasurer. It did not even say that thc
Beal of the State should be placed on thoe<
bonds. The only bonds with which Ihe finan?
cial board had to do were three million sever
hundred thousand dollars, created under the
a :t to redeem the bills of the Bank of the
State, the act to pay the Interest on ihe public
debt, the act for ihe relief ol the treasury, and
the act creating the land commission. The
man whom he would name tor the nomi?
nation for Governor had nothing to do with
any other bonds. That gentleman was the
Hon. D. H. Chamberlain. [Cheers.] As to
this being a fight between the bondholders
and poor men, lt was false. The bondholders
had no choice between any two men who
would execute the laws with equal fidelity.
He had no do ibu hat either Chamberlain or
Moses would faithfully execute the laws, and,
therefore, the bondholders had no preference
between them. He wanted Ihe integrity ol
the R-publlcau^rty In the State preserved.
He wanted a candidate who would bj ac?
ceptable to the Republican party of the
whole State and country. He wanted a
nomination which would drive no men
from the doors of the convention.
They fought the enemy In front and van?
quished them. But If they nominated a roan
distasteful to many prominent Republicans
they would provoke a fatal fight within
their own ranks, and place themselves iu
such a position aa to allow their enemies to
rise from und?r their feet, and to throw their
legions against either flank. The Republican
party in the counlry was not uudlv.ded. Cin?
cinnati had nominated a wariiorof the quill,
Puiladelphia the great soldier of the Union,
bolh claiming to be Republicans; and he ap?
pealed to them tor the purpose of k*>et>'.og the
party in the nation, as well as In tne State,
compact and united. The defection of
South Carolina, small a? she is, might at this
critical time insure the defeat of Grant; and he
appealed to them for God's sake lo keep the
party intact. Place Chamberlain in nomina?
tion and there would not be a Republican io
the State who would not vote for him. But If
they should drive their own people from Ihe
doors of the convention, they would ruin and
beat down the Republican party and insure
the success of Greeley. Then, farewell to the
rights and liberties of colored men. He ap?
pealed to them, for the sake of their own free?
dom, to put up the man who would cement the
party and avert all schisms. Without such
a man, he prophesied the dissolution
of the Republican party lu South Carolina and
the disfranchisement and re-enslavement of
the colored men. Such a man was D. H.
Chamberlain, who. being a Northern soldier,
could guard the rights of the colored men,
and, if they were threatened, could bring
from the North a million men to protect them.
T. J. Mackey here interrupted him to a9k il
being a Union soldier was a test of Republi?
canism, and instanced the case of Frank
Blair, wbo had been a brave soldier of ihe
Union, and afterwards tbe Democratic candi?
date for vice-President.
Neagle replied that he did not say that a
man was any belter Republican because he
had been a Union soldier; but such a man
could touch the chords In the hearts of U
soldiers that other Republicans could not.
Elliott (Lee being temporarily In the ct
undertook to electioneer for Moses, and
nled the existence ol euch a power on Gt
berlaln's part. He had himself been a sol
of the Union army, and Chamberlain c
touch no chord in his heart.
In reply to a question of Elliott's, Ne
said he would stand by the regular nomi
right or wrong, now and forever. He i
eluded by 9aylng that, under Chamber?
the canvass must be victorious, and, ur
Moses, it would be filled with doubt and f
Swalls, of Williamsburg, Implored the <
vention to look at the present condition of
Slate, and asked If this was a time for pi
or race proposals. He would nominate I
ben Tomlinaon, [cheers] an original Abolit
1st and Republican, who wa9 the first to Cl
into the cause ot education, who taught
first colored school, who was the friend or
poor mao, who was free from any taint ol i
ruplion. He asked colored men and t
white men, one and all, to join bands for
honest man and true Republican.
Judge Orr warmly recommended the no
nation of Tomllnsoo, a man personally"pt
the educational pioneer; the ?r.-l State audi
who formed our system or taxation and
iamlllar with it; a man whom calumny ne
touched; a Northerner whose sympathies i

It ls very important that such a man sho
be elected. Our finances are disordered,

or old politicians. In conclusion, Elliott warm
ly advised the convention to nominate Moses
Jamieson moved to close all debate, bur
after fillibusterlng, Whitemore was allowet
to speak in favar of Tomllnson. Whittemon
said he rose ia fear and trembling for th?
future of the party in South Carolina. He hat
been humiliated to the soul at the proof
brought forward of shameless bribery and cor
ruplion In behalf of both candidates. The re
sponsibilllles of delegates were great. Ht
begged them to pause and ask their own con
sciences what they should do, aud ihen say tc
Governor Scott and his ring that, if they coule
not be Impeached of high crimes and mlsdc
raeaoors, they would at least b<* removed by
the voice or the people ut the ballot-box. He
had himself committed one great blunder,
and had been held up la Congress
by the preceding speaker, (Eiliotr,) as a vica?
rious sacrifice. God knew he had suffered rot
that error, and he boped for mercy now. They
were Instructed by their constituents to re?
turn no mau connected with tbe frauda on the
Plate, and he could no m.ire support the one
?-an who had been guilty of over-Issues of
pay certificates lhan the other who was guilty
of over-Issues of bonds. There was rotten?
ness In the houses of both candidates. Whi?
temore then reviewed the career of Tomlln?
son In this Slate, claiming lhat br was an un?
flinching Republican, unlmpeac. oly honest,
and an unswerving friend of the colored man
and or education.
After Whlttemore had concluded, T. J.
Mackey got the floor, and went savagely for
Tomiinson and Whlttemore. He said he
would lear the masks from the faces of both,
and show their hideous ugliness. He would
show that Tomllnson had enriched himself at
the expense or the State, and, il' he did not
prove the assertion, Tomiinson had his remedy
against him in the courts. He charged, fir.^t.
on this symbol or honor, thar, In 18G9, a
bill wus brought up before the Legisla?
ture, ot which lie was a member, to char?
ter a phosphate company. Tomiinson was
the special advocate of that bill.
The bill passed, vesting the control of
all this vast source of revenue to the State in
that company, and Just after the passage of
that bill Tomlinsons name appeared on tbe
books ol that company for forty thousand dol?
lars or its stock. The lime had been when a
legislator ol South Carolina would have shrank
from such an Imputation as bribery as from j
the fang of a deadly serpent. Next came
bill to create tbe sinking fund commission
which the Greenville and* Colombia Ballr
was to be turned over to a commission,
could prove that H. H. Eimpton paid Tom
son ten thousand dollars for one half shan
the stock of that company. He could j.
duce the partnership. Tom,(neon was tl
State auditor, and he charged that soon at
the passage of the phosphate bill, Tomlin
waB made treasurer of the phosphate c:
pany. Tomlinaon could be convicted of
these charges In the courts, and he (Mack
only wanted the opportunity to get Tomllm
before a court and prove them. Tomlin!
waa in the pay o( the Greenville and Colt
bia Railroad Company, and was treasurer
that company at the same time while St
auditor. He turned then to Tomi
son's eulogist, Wblttemore. He was
gentleman from Darlington, whose lo
mansion reared lia noble front will
ten miles of Boston, and' had be
purchased within ayear. It was the old tri
of the thief putting on the uniform ola poll
man to escape detection. Who, he asked, <
not remember the Blue Bldge.scrip swlndll
bill last winter ? Whlttemore waa silent
the grave during Its passage through t
Senate in the last hours ol the session. Fe
days after the adjournment Wblttemore w
lound In New York selling bia Blue Bid
scrip. He was glad to see bim in a spirit
repentance, but lt was a spirit which li
arleen yesterday and would pass away
morrow. He was a tlc reformer on the pr
clple admitted In medicine that to Innocule
a patient you take the virus from the wo
case ol small-pox you can find. [Laugh!
and cheers.] He was willing to throw t
mantle ot charity over repentant crimina
but to claim that he had only committed o

Wnen tnu applause subsided, Moses com
meuced his address. He said iherowereoc
casions In the life of every mun when he lei
?mulions almost too deep for utterance. I
ever there hud been un occasion lu bis Hf.
fraught willi pleasure aud granulation, it wai
at that moment, when he was surrounded bi
Republicans who had fixed upon him lur theil
candidate for chid magistrate ul the State o
bunill Carolina. He also fully recognized UH
Immensity of the responsibility he took upot
himself In entering upon the campaign as theil
standard-bearer. He had no studlea words ol
eloquence io uddress them, but he coule
speak unprepared, because his language
came irom his heart. First, he de?
sired hilly and cordially to disclaim all feel?
ing ol enmity or hostility to any one on ac
count ot expressions evolved by the momen?
tary passions of a heated canvass. He bad
noi one unkind feeling, not oue harsh thought
or expression toward any Republican in Hie
Stale. He paid a high and warm tribute to
his opponent, Chamberlain, the anle, scholar'
ly and brilliant ornament to the Republican
party of the state ot South Carolina. To those
Republicans whose Judgment led them to sup?
port other gentlemen, ne would say that lie
believed them to have been actuated by the
purest ?ind best of motives. Tiley had loughr.
well, aud done their Whole duty lor their
friends. Now he asked tu let all conflict cease,
and be brothers ugaln. To think more ol
party lliati men-of principles than per?
sons. He Dieu announced lils principles
lo guveru him, If elected. He prophesied
thal, If elected, he wutul Inaugurate an era
ol economy which would satlsty every man
within the couhnes ot the State-Dem?cratas
well as Republican. First, he wuuld aim to
reduce the piioitc debt aud bring lt within
such limits as io enable nie State tu pay us
Iniere.-t, without bringing poverty to every
dre.-id ? in the State. Second, and consequent
upon the drst, he would secure u rednoilvD of
Hie taxe*. Those weie relorms tliuiihe Repub?
lican party must effect, or it- doom was sealed.
Tne peuple Iud spoken intones ut thunder,
aud iliat voice must be responded to. It wus
not yet too late-never too late to strive to do
right ir they exnibiied.i.iuits and lollies In
the past it was time lo benin io eradicate,
them, and the standard bearer ol the It-pub
Ucau party snould remember that while 'he
should Inscribe upon his banner "Equal rights
fur all," he should battle as well fur the pock
els us for i lie rlghlH ol' the whole people. He
then said thai he was exhausted with tue
mental strain o? the last few days, and would
noi delay t hem longer. He would address bis
views to the people in lull through the columns
ot the public press. Atter a runtier expres?
sion or thanks he said good nlnnc. Cneets

ed till ten o'clock to morrow.
The indications tn-night. are that aBerious
bolt wl.l be organized iu-morrow; but Moses
wlil so arrange his ticket as to weaken tho
bolt as much us possible. Throughout the
convention Elliott was notoriously partial io his
rulings, and, by word and gesture, advocated
Moses from the chair. Tu his arbitrary con?
duct ls due much ol Moses's strength. All
Republicans dissatisfied with the nomination
of Moses are lo meet at the Courthouse at
Simon Black, sentenced to be hune in Lex?

form and beaded by entirely different people
than any one had anticipated or even sur?
TH? CONTEST FOR THE PRESIDENCY
had reeolved ltselt into two parties-the sd
minlsiraiioo party, whose candidato was Dr.
Arenas, and tne popular party, whose candi?
date was Don Manuel Pardo. Both houses of
Congress held their preliminary meetings on
the 13th of thlB month, and although all their
sessions were held In secret from that lime ?p
to the hour of their forced dissolution, lt was
quite apparent that Pardo would be the choice
of tbe legislative branch. So well founded
were these impressions that a general under?
standing seemed to exist that the President,
Don. Jose Balta, would quietly turn over Hie
Insignia ot his office to lils successor, Pardo.
Oa ihe 2d of August this seemed not only to
be ibe probable issue, but at the same time
the one which
GAVE TOE OREATERT SATISFACTION TO THE
at large. Fears of a revolution were to a
great extent subsiding, and - everything
seemed to be progressing calmly and quietly,
when on the22d inst., abouti wo o'clock P. M.,
General Thomas Gutierrez, minister of war of
President B .lia's ctblnci, appeared on the
principal plaza in Lima, directly In front ol
the government palace. At the head of a
force of Infantry and artillery he
ARRESTED AND IMPRISONED BALTA,
declared himself dlctalor under the title of
"Supreme Chief of the Republic," dissolved
boih houses of Congress by driving ibe sena?
tors and deputies from their halls At the point
of ibe bayonet; dispatched a force of soldiers
to arrest Pardo, in which, however, he was
not successful, and scouring the streets of the
capital with armed soldiers created a panic of
fear and alarm that left him tor ihe time com?
pletely master of Ihe situation. So sudden
was all this, so entirely unexpected und so in?
timidated were the public by this lawless and
forced assumption ol' power that no resistance
could at once be made.
Commodore Stembel then relates bow tbe:
usurper gained control of the whole army,
numbering seven thousand men, and, deem?
ing himself secure, Issued pronunciamientos,
and congratulated th? country upon his as?
sumption ot power. The revolution was doom?
ed to be short lived. The moral strength of
the people was against it. Demoralization
ensued among ihe usurper's supporters in the
army, offices, and among the people. The
four ehlps of war belonging to the navy had
Balled out or his reach.
At this time, (Commodore Stembel con?
tinues,) li was uncen ai n as to how long Gutier?
rez would be able lo usurp the power, or as
how rar through ihe Republic me insurrection
might extend. It raient be all ov?r In a few
days, and lt might, last a month and more. In.
this umerzency I deemed lt my duty to l??
crense roy force and be' prepared to have a'

24th Instant, the second day of the tron?les,
DESERTIONS FROM THE DIFFERENT FORTS
and cuartetes of the "Supreme Chief" were
of Irequeot occurrence, and more than one
half ol his soldiers left him during ihe thirty
six hours that succeeded that lime. Street,
firing became irequeni; soldiers deserting
ttircYw away iheir Winchester rifles, leaving
them to be picked up by the lower and
worst clas-es ot the people, aud the few re?
maining torces ol' the Gutierrez fsotion In
Callao became thoroughly demoralized, and

On the 25r.D. while Lima was quiet and under
control of Hie dictator,

Forts were deserted, ihe soldiers throwing
away their arms and uniforms. The rullroans
connecting with Lima were torn no, the tele?
graph cut, the mob in possession of the town
firing at anybody and everybody; firing imo
business offices and private dwellings, and no
authority or head to control tnem. The morn?

THE GREAT BANK BOBBERY.
Additional Facts--Public Opinion and
Speculation - The. Terna " Burglar.
Proof" Obioletc-The Toplr of the
Hour- Y Brare of Witty Hogues.
[From tho Baltimore sun, August 21.]
Perhaps no criminal occurrence happening
In Baltimore for the past ten years has created
so much excitement and sensation, or caused
so much of public comment and criticism, as
the robbery of the Third National Bank, on
South street, the particulars of which were,
given yesterday. Happenlog as lt did over
two days ago, and bel?g so extensively venti?
lated during Monday, oue would naturally
luive supposed tbat ihe excitement would
bave dieu out, as such things generally do,
very quickly. Not so, however, as lhere was
something more startling than a mere "rob?
bery" in this case. The. skilful and daring
operations of the thieves in tearing away
brick walls, drilling through Iron stabs and
chipping out cemented vault walls, seemed to
have fairly astounded every one, and caused
owners of valuables to wouder exactly what
ls safe as against thieves.
Since the general excitement and confusion
attendant upon th? discovery of the robbery
on Monday the bank officers buve been .busi?
ly engaged In gathering knowledge of toe lost
valuables, but as yet nave got ho trace'of
those stolen or or the thieves; As heretofore,
stated, ibey had twice heard strange noise*
several days adjoining the bank before the
robbery, but no suspicion was aroused. The
detectives continue nonplussed by the pecu?
liarities of the op?ration, and whatever they
may have learned they have kept Beeret Tne
bank watchman, Michael Burnett, who seems
silll to .have the confidence ot the bank offi?
cers, could tell,nothing except that be acci?
dentally saw the Stabler dc Co. party going In
and out of the adjoining GUtings building,
which the thieves occupied, and irom which
ihey operated, but attached no particular Im?
portance to anything he saw. No traces left
hythe shrewd villains can yet be followed,
and although lt la an old adage that "murder
will out," lt seems very questionable whether
this great robbery will ever be relieved of the
shroud of mystery en clouding it
Not even a uood personal description of the
robbers could'be gotten In the excitement of
Monday. Yesterday, however, Mr. John S.
outings was Interviewed, and from him some
new facts are gathered. He elves that the
Stabler & Co. firm were also known as E.
Washburue & Co. The man Washbnrne being
"rreoun>zed as the head of the bogus drm, and
lt was .through his negotiations that the bund?
ing was rented. He Is described as a man
flue built, about five feet seven Inches high,
witn a good face, pleasant expression, genteel
deportment, quick ol speech and fluent in
conversation. Hin bair and side wnlsken?
were yellowish. He bad the air of a shrewd
and active business man and inspired confi?
dence at. once, so much so that when he had
paid $050 fora quarter's rent in advance, Mr.
Gu Huge at once decided he had a good ten?
ant In reply to an Inquiry as to the style of
business to be carried on, he responded that
they were going Into the grain commission
business, but lt ibat should not prove suc?
cessful, he intended to "open a bauk." The
sequel proves ibat he did open a bank, and lo
His coinpaulon, supposed to constitute the
"Co.," is described as a short, stoutiy-bullt In?
dividual, looking like an Englishman of the
lower order. He had a cast in one eye, a very
red face, dark huir, and was of rather unpre?
possessing appearance. He Is accredited with
a loudness for stimulating refreshments and
was a frequent visitor to a saloon near by, lo
which he went several limes with s'eeves
rolled up, explaining, ou one occasion, that he
was hard at work at the "office." Ii ls In?
ferred that this very hard work was ui on the
wall leading to the neighboring hank vault
WHEN LAST SEEN.
Careful inquiries ma ie about the neighbor?
hood go to BUow that the man Washbnrne (or
Stabler) was seen in the building on Saturday
by afr. Sauerhaus, agent for Mr. GltUngs, ap?
parently deeply engaged with a set ot huge
books behind the a esk railing. The rear
rooms were then closed, and Washburue
seemed very busy In iront. A German watch?
man employed at the corner of Second and
South streets slates that he also saw the man
on Sunday aiterooon enier the Glttlngs
building, and aller a few minutes come out
again with a bundle. Some conjecture that
this very bundle contained at least a portion
ol the valuables, but of course all such con?
jectures are Idle. Another resident of the
neighborhood states that on Saturday night a
maa was seen quietly sealed on ihe steps ol'
the Merchants' and farmers' Bank, opptslte
ihe GltUngs building, lor eeverp.1 hours, who
is now supposed to have been a confederate,
but ibis ls mere conjecture. Beyond this, not
a single tangible fact has been developed to
lead io any possible trail of the thieves.

NEW YORK, August 16,.
Tbe political excirem?Tifr develops the
latent Insanity resldleg la some, people. I
was talking with an Englishman yesterday
who has resided many years in this country.
He ls an Intense Radical (lt ls noticeable "(mat
nearly every English born citizen one meets
In the Northern States ls an Administration
Ist, while.the reverse is the case, I believe, in
the Sou th, and In Canada the sympathy ls with
the Democrats or Liberals.) He was giving
me his reasons for supporting Grant, "roe
election of Greeley," he said, '-would com?
pletely upset the country. The South would
rise In reoelllon."
"What preposterous stuff and nonsense," I
replied, with Impatience,. "Is lt possible an
Intelligent man like you"
.'I nave lived in tne South," he said, ex?
citedly, '"and I know tbe people. I. tell you,
slr, they are r.pe lor rebeiiloo, and (briagjog
hie fist down on bis desk) Greeley would let
'em depart in peace."
I found lt no use reasoning with this zealot.
The craze was on him, and he as firmly be?
lieved that Greeley was in horrid compact
with the Ku-Klux as did bis English*eacoa*t
ancestry that Bonaparte bad horns and wore
a long forked tall. . .
I mention this incident to show yon, what
curious notions have gotten possession or the
brains bf some of the people here. The Grant
organ keeps np tbe oclusi?n by harping on
the ..disloyal" feeling In .the. So'ith, though
they announce with great cheerfulness the ac?
cession or any bid "Bebel," Mee Mosby, to
their side. ' . . . .'?:i:-.v
I suppose there Is Justas much ofthladflor
sion among y our colored people. No amount of
solemn asseveration by Sumner that tiri Gree?
ley will respect ihe rights acquired by the
negroes under the amendments, would weigh
against the simple word ol a carpet-bagger or
scalawag. How hide-bound the ' negroes are
In this city war Illustrated by their treatment
ot Saunders, lue colored Greeley orator, at
Cooper Institute the other night. .,
Mr. Saunders is an Intelligent and we!!-edn
caied gentleman, who was nomtaatei tor
eleotoron the Grant ile? ec In-Maryland, but
who resigned about (helimp ot the Baltimore
Convention, and took the stump lor Greeley.
One or the colored preachers here, Ber. 'H. H .
Garner, who ls for Grant, bad boastingly ex?
pressed a wish to.meet the .Greeley champion
la debate. Thia reached Sauudera's ears, and,
as soon as the Norm Carolina campaign was
over, he came to this eire to gratify his chal?
lenger. He lound Garnet very, slippery .-ult
was difficult to bring him ta terms. ?e pro?
crastinated, prevaricated and, after several
back-down", consented to meet- Maunders on .
Thursday evening, tn the great hail of Coop?
Institute- .... ....... i,t__
The place ot meeting wes crowded, the au?
dience being moally negroes.' But lt was evi?
dent as soon as Sauuders opened- mat His
hearers were not in. sympathy with: him. As
if by preconcerted arrangement, they .hissed,
hooted and howled like demons when* Saun?
ders opened his Ups. His speech was drowned
lathe uproar. Hts opponent,- Garnet, sat on
the stage, grinning-with delight, and occasion?
ally calling for "three cheers tor Grant.'*
When Garnet's turn begun, and all through- a
harangue of an hour aud a half, he was rap?
turously cheered. He bad little to.say .of tho
eau did ates, as the burden of. his remarks was
personal abuse of bis opponent' lu the debate'.
By the terms ol the tourney Saunders bad
half an hour's rejoinder. But .the audience
bad been worked up to frenzy by the
preache 'a appeals; they, would not permit the
obnoxious Greeley man to be heard; they
kicked up a perfect pandem?nium about'nts
ears, cheered on all me lime Dy Garnet, and
at last some of them rushed on me stage wllh
threatening gestures-: Saunders', - who' had
braved ihe fury ot' this demented mob with
splendid pluck, saw that lt was no use to rtay
any longer and quietly took his leave. But he
had to be surrounded wilh his white and
colored friends as protectors, for some of the
moo foliowed him to the streei cars, a quarter
of it mile distant, with threats against bis life.
Tne comments of the press (with the'ex?
ception ot the Times, of course.) were very
severe on this exhibition of Illiberality-and
ruffianism. The Herald, which ls inclined to
favor Grant, remarked that such events as
thia bad the tendency' to suggest grave doubts
la the minds of many who bad been Irlends of
ihe negro If he was yet fitted for cUlzmBhju.
aud suffrage. It ls buijustlce to the respecta?
ble colored men ot N?w York "to add that the

the trouble to Piaotamoiir's comet, (invisible,

of having tue weather m tv-rour-toid botter or

been figured as fine as that.) It ts generally
believed, however, that some great climatic
changes are going on, and that most wonder?
ful things may happen-such, for instance, as ,
a fall of snow on ihe Fourth ot July. There
was actually a clap of thunder from a clear
sky io Troy last Thursday. The firmament
was blue and serene, when suddenly there ?
came a crash like ibe explosion of a million
