COLOMBIA, August 24.
Tte "regular" Radical Convention reassem?
bled at about noon to-day, and it became evi?
dent at once tbat the bitter fight between Mob
ley and Elliott, which had broken up the con?
vention in a literal row the evening before,
had been adjusted io such a way as to prevent
the further airing of that particular batch of
dirty HOOD. Chairman Elliott opened the pro?
ceedings by making a personal statement in
regard to his own conduct of the previous day,
assuring Mobley and the convention that his
persistent rulings against the plucky little
member from Union had been prompted by no
partisan feelings, but had sprung solely Irom
his desire to rigidly enforce the rules. Then
Cardozo, in reply to a request from Mobley,
made an explanation of the remarks he had
made the day before in reference to that mem?
ber's- past misdeeds lu Union County, and a
retraction which, although eminently Pick?
wickian In form and manner, was accepted as
satisfactorily, and thus a semblance of peace
and harmony was restored.
It was next resolved, on motion of T. J.
Mackey, but not without the usual tedious fil?
ibustering that all debate upon v,<? question
ot the treasurership should close In three
hours. This was arrived at about one o'clock,
and Frost took the floor aud proceeded to sup?
plement bis unmerciful attack of yesterday
upon Cardozo. He repeated his charges
against him ior violating his pledge made to
the county convention of Richland not to sup?
port Moses for G overnor, and, in reply to his
statement, that he had nevertheless consider?
ed lt a matter for his own discrelion. he said
that he would show that his discretion in such
matters was of such a kind as honest men
could not safely trust. When South Carolina
was In a turmoil over Its financial difficulties,
and impeachment was hanging over the heads
ol the State officers, he went to Washington,
to accept a professorship there. He did'nt
stay there, however, because the State got, to
a certain measure, out of its troubles, because
he bad become so exceedingly unpopular in
Washington that the finger of scorn was
pointed at him from every quarter, and be?
cause Washington had become too hot to hold
him. Last winter he (Frost) had been put on
a committee to estimate the over-Issue o'
bonds, and in the course of his investigations
he had telegraphed to Cardozo, who was then
lu New York, for some Information. Cardozo :
replied by telegraph, that if the information :
was required from him by a resolution of the
Assembly, he would furnish lt and not other?
wise. He did that because he thought more '
ol securing to himself the credit ol making the i
exposure than of servios* the interests of the i
State. As to his attacks upon Swails and his i
threat that he could put Swails In the peniten- i
tlary he asked why, if he could do so, and was l
an honest man, he had not done so or did not
. dft SO -It SS-fcfci--? ?? 00.?Ui rw.t ?to ir, ?nd! r
he knew when he said it that he could not do t
lt. He would say to the secretary of State 1
that lt was too late, sinner, for repentance, i
The 4am p had burned out and there was no i
time then to repent. <
Frost closed with sarcastic thanks to the 1
Chairman tor his kind, fair and impartial rul?
ings, and Swails. of Williamsburg, took the ?
floor to follow up the attack. Mr. Swails first 1
spoke of Cardoso's threat that he could put 1
him in the penitentiary, and after defending 1
his official record he said he courted the full- <
est Investigation before any proper tri o u nal. 1
It waa no reply to a charge of dishonesty to 1
gay that the man who made it was a thief, and j
lt was too late in the day for thc candiuate for 1
treasurer to save himself by shouting mad ,
dog. For the swindles In the land commis- 1
sion, Cardozo was directly responsible as 1
a member of the advisory board, without 1
whose sanction the land commissioner 1
and his agents could not do a single thing; 1
the joint financial investigating commit- 1
tee had lound him mixed up with !
the worst swindles of the land com- <
mission, and the evidence was ready :
to 'be produced at any moment to prove lt. 1
Then this Immaculate gentleman had ackoowl- 1
edged that he knew of the swindles in the
State finances for the past two years, but was 1
afraid to open his mouth. That was a lame ?
defence, foi- he knew that if he had whispered |
those frauds two years ago they would have |
been prevented, and he might have been <
mandamused till bell ?(roze over, but the peo ]
pie of the 3u te would have protected him In 1
making th J exposures. SWP.IIS concluded by 1
saying that Cerdozo had been lalse as peere- (
tary jf State, falae as a member of the ad- <
Tieory board of the land commission, f alse to <
the explicit instructions of his constituents, |
and that he had proven himself either utterly
corrupt or so miserably weak as to bc entlrtly j
unfit for office. i
Secretary Cardozo U ok the floor in reply. ,
He contended that the resolution of the Rich- ]
land County Convention, instructing the dele- ;
gates not to support Sott, Parser or Motea, 1
was hurriedly passed, and he believed he \
had the right to use his own discretion. He t
therefore voted for Moses, the best candidate 1
before the convention, and believed that R'cli- a
land County would ratify his action. The pro- 1
feasorshipln Washington was offered him in ?
1865 by General Howard. Last summer he r
took the place on trial, with the consent of the c
Governor, who begged him not to resign. He s
liked the position, but thought that it was his c
duty to return to South Carolina and take bis r
share of the common burden. In November, \
J870r he did suspect there was something t
wrong with the conversion bonds; but he had ?
no right to demand why they were issued, nor t
could he go into the courts on a bare suspi- ?
don. Wnen he resigned as secretary of State 1
in November, 1871, ho said, in bis letter, it ]
was because he wanted lo perlorm duties \
"more congenial to his mind," which meant 1
that he did not want to seal any more bonds. 1
Later on the treasurer was obliged to show ]
what bonds bad been Issued, and he (Cardozo) I
then said to himself, "Now. I've got you where
I want you. IM go back." Upon bis return j
the Governor begged him to withdraw his <
resignation. This he did and said : "I am j
now secretary of State again, and will not seal <
another bond until the courts compel me to do \
so." No bonds were sealed until March 13, t
1872. When the validating bill was passed the 1
treasurer presented $1,800,000 or bonds to be ,
sealed. He again refused, and defied the 1
treasurer to make bim. Last July more bonds j
were wanted with which to manage the Slate 1
convention, but be again refused. An official
went to him (Cardozo) and said : "Can any I
inducement ? You understand." He (Car
dozoi replied, "Begone ! or I will kick you
out of this parlor." He declined to say who
the official was. He proposed to go into the
courts to avoid sealing. He had no money,
but two distinguished lawyers, to whom eter?
nal gratitude is due, Messrs. C. D. Melton and
D. T. Corbin, told him they would givo their
services gratuitously In behalf of the beloved
State. [Loud cheers ] The case was post?
poned for want of jurisdiction to the regular
October terra ci the Circuit Court. He charged
that Senator Swails, who had assailed him,
waB himself corrupt, and he dared that
senator lo indict him for libel, for he
could prove the truth of what he
said. Only one charge could be brought
against him (Cardozo.) That was, that
he had, as the owner of a quarter share in the
Greenville and Columbia Railroad, received
$6560 In second mortgage bonds ol that road,
belog his share of tho price ($300,090) paid for
the charter of the Continental Telegraph Co.
The South Carolina Railroad bought the Green?
ville and Columbia Railroad, and objected to
this contract, and he (Cardozo,) upon the first
aemand, surrendered his second mortgage
bonds and took back his stock In the railroad
company. As io the land commission, he said
he deemed himself "the saviour of the adviso?
ry board." Wnen tbe second purchase of land
was made, he heard that there was fraud In
the transaction. He brought up Commlssoner
Leslie for trial belore the advisory board, and
Governor Scott resigned to avoid taking part
In lr. Commissioner Leslie got clear upon
technicalities, and he (Cardozo) resigned, and
for five months did not take part in tbe pro?
ceedings ol the board. In March, 1870, It was
proposed to appropriate another half million
dollars lor the land commission, and the mem?
bers refused to make the appropriation unless
Cardozo would return to the advisory board.
He consented on condll ion that a new commis?
sioner be appointed. This was done, but before
the new commissioner (DeLarge) could get
Into office the old commissioner, Leslie,
produced bonds for $26u,000 out of tho new
appropriai lon. This was done by lorgery; by
dating back lo February deeds which he had
In March. This was shown by the records of
the Charleston Mesoe Conveyance office. The
lands lhere only cost Leslie and his friends
520,000, and they were sold to the State for
$120,000. and these lands cannot now be
found. They were mortgaged and sold back;
the State has nothing to show for them. These
facts have been placed before the attorney
general, and two ubi? lawyers are now alter
the culprit. [Cheers.] When he (Cardozo)
was made land commissioner, as well as sec?
retary oi Stale, he gave up his professorship
in Washington, and went actively to work.
He would Boon be abli to present a complete
report of the operations of the land commis?
sion. This would show triat $500,000 were
actually spenr, but the State was charged with
$800,000. A sum of $300,000 had been stolen,
and the effort would be made to tasten the
responsibility upon the right shoulders. All
the lands bought were worth only $200.000.
The rest was the cheat upon the Slate. After
explaining his conduct In the matter of the
taking the seal cf the State to New York, and
also his connection with the conversion
bonds, in the same strain as that; of his pub?
lished letter, Mr. Cardozo took his seat.
R. H. Cain followed Cardozo, claiming that
;ho lattor had mado 5001 Ula dofcuco ?aglftiUM><
ill charges that had been brought against him.

nominate him and the people elect him lo the
jffice of State treasurer by an overwhelming
John Cochrane, of Anderson, placed In
Domination the name ot William Perry, of
Greenville, for the office of treasurer. The
chairman decided thal Ihe ihree hours allow?
ed tor debate had expired. This led to some
confusion, lt being a question whether the
three hours to which the de:>ate was limited
had not expired. Jones, of Georgetown, Bald
it had been fixed tn caucus that Mr. Perry
should be sprung upon the convention, and
demanded a free debate. Efforts were made
to obtain an extension of lime, but the majori?
ty sustained the order closing the debate, and
the roll was called for the nomination of State
treasurer. Upon the vote, as lt etood before
the announcement of the resulr, Cardozo re?
ceived 63 votes, Noah 38, Alexander 3, Perry
?, Adams 1, McKinlay 3. A rush was made to
change votes, and the final result was, Cardo?
so 77, Noah 26, Alexander3, Perry 3, Adams 1,
McKinlay 2. Tnis was received with cheers,
music and cries of "God save the Stale !"
On motion of Mr. F. J. Moses, Jr., ihe con?
tention proceeded to nominate a comptroller
general. Mr. J. L. Neagle said he had no
preferences as to his successor. F. W. Sa*
jortas nominated G. F. McIntyre, of Colleton.
Congressman Raluey nominated Mr. S. L.
Eloge. Thomas seconded the nomination of
McIntyre aud June Mobley that of H?ge.

The nomination of an adj u tan t and Inspector
general was next In order. S. J. Lee noml
?ated H. W. Purvis, of Richland, colored.
Tamleson, of Orangeburg, nominated June S.
Hooley, of Union. He demanded that the up?
country, where Republicans had suffered so
nicb, bave a place ou the ticket. Unless that
vere done, the Boilers would carry that sec- ,
iou and defeat Hie regular licKer. He asked
lothlng for bis own county, but Charleston
md Richland ought not to monopolize the
Icker. Mr. B. F. Whlttemoro Dominated S. A.
Iwalls, colored, of Williamsburg, a soldier by
?rofesslon, who would be familiar with all the
luties of the office. Lilly, colored, cf Cheater, ;
econded the nomination of Mobley, and Frost,
lOlored, that of Swails. Senator Swails said
ie thanked the members lor the nomination,
>ut the constitution prohibits the members of 1
he Legislature trout holding the office of
idjulant-general, and he, therefore, declined ;
he nomination and invited the convention to
nippon Purvis. June Mobley said he thought
ie could do the Slate more service as a legis
alor and he would withdraw in iavor of Po-. ? 1
rls. Judge T. J. Mackey supported Mobley 1
jecause he had a fully-armed militia company,
which he never put in the field, but fought ihe 1
tu-KIux alone. The rules being suspended,
EL W. Purvis was nominated by acclamation. 1
On motion of Judge Mackey, the convention 1
jroceeded to nominate a superintendent ot 1
?ducation. Judge Mackey nominated J. K. j
lillson, born in Massachusetts, an adopter! 1
iltizen of this State, and Hie present holder of 1
he office. Mr. B. F. Whittemore seconded ?
he nomination, Mr. Jillaou being without re- s
proach, failhlul among ihe faithless. Senator 1
James M. Allen also seconded Ihe nomination; !
for what the upcountry needed was a man ?
like Mr. Jillson, who would diffuse the bleis- <
Ings of educaiion throughout the up-country '
and enable the Republicans to stand alone. \
Wm. M. Thomas, colored, nominated S. W. 1

which the committee had adopted, and wh
they asked to have Inserted in the platfo
already presented to the convention. 1
resolution pledged the party that the asylui
schools and other public institutions shot
never again be closed or suspended thron
the disgraceful extravagance of State office
Cardozo said that the committee ought
be ashamed to bring forward such an acknoi
edgment of the guilt of Republicau officia
and urged the convention not to adopt it, at
would hurt thc party in the campaign.
Swails, on behalf of a number ol citizens
Richland Couuty, presented a petition, sign
by Rev. Joseph Taylor and sixty other c<
ored men, asking tbat William Simonis
appointed chairman of Richland County, ai
that he be Instructed to call another coun
nominating convention, as the one that h
been held was illegal, and did not give sat!
Upon this Cardozo, who had been the chai
man of the convention in Richland County i
ferred to, moved to take a recess until elg

The convention reassembled at about nio

torlal record. A vote being finally reacher
R. H. Cain received 70 votes, and was declare
the choioe ot the convention. L. C. Carpet

The Radical Boller?.
The Bolting Convenlion reassembled a
noon to-day, but with closed doors, and ihei
day session was a caucus rather than a coo
vention. Considerable discussion was hiv
u;.on the advisability of running a ticket an
upon the chances of success, and committee
upon credentials Bod re olutlons were ap
pointed. At five P. M. a permanent organiza
tlon was effected by the election of Judge Or
as president and James N. Hayna as secretary
after which a recess was had until eight P. M
The convention reassembled soon a fte
eight o'clock, and was called to order b;

Mr. Petty, of Charleston, nominated Mr.
Reuben Tomllnson for Governor. Mr. Earle,
nf Greenville, seconded the nomination ina

One of the colored delegates from Charleston

the vote was taken by acclamation, and Mr.
Tomlinson was unanimously nominated.
On motion, a committee of tnree was ap?
pointed to Inform Mr. Tomllnson of his nomi?
nation, and conduct him to the stand. Mr.
romliosop was accordingly brought In, and
introduced to the convention by Judge Orr
its the candidate of the honest Republican
Mr. Toihllnson made a short and very good
-peech, thanking the convenlion for the honor
conferred upon him, and pledging blmselt, so
lar as his power might go. to an honest re
lormaiion of the State administration, should
ne be elected Governor.
At the close ot Mr. TomlinBon's speech. Mr.
Bowen arose and said he desired to make a
nomination, which was perhaps out of order,
nut which, for certain reasons, ho desired to
make at that time. He desired to nominate
or attorney-general that spotless Republican,
l,he lion. Johu T. Green, ot Sumter. The an?
nouncement was received with rapturous ap?
plause. Mr. S. Lee, (colored,) of Sumter, se
;onded the nomination in a titling speech.
Mr. J. H. White, (colored,) of York, nomi?
nated Judge S. W. Melton, who, he Bald, had
neen nominated at the oilier convention. He
?poke in the highest terms of Judge Mellon.
Generat Whipper ppoke a few words In favor
>f Judge Green, saying that he had all respect
br Judge Melton, but that he proposed to
nake a F (juara fight with the Ring crew-to
i??ht them from first to last, io the knife, uod
o the hilt of the kn lie; and that, Inasmuch as
lodge Mellon had chosen to associate hlmaeli
vilh Franklin J. Moses, he proposed to let him
le in the bed which he had made.
Judge Melton's name was withdrawn, and
fudge Green was unanimously nominated.
The name of Dr. B. A. Bosemon was next
.resented, by General Whipper, as a nominee
Dr. Bosemon begged to decline the nomlna
lon, upon the grounds thal he designed io aid
he movement, heart and soul, upon tho

or him to accept a nomination for any office

The following platform was submitted by Hie
:ommlttee on resolutions aud laid ove?Stor
?otislderation on Mondaj:
The true Republican parly ol South Carolina
inundates ene following platform:
Wiiereas trross and flagrant abuses in the ad?
it inlsi ration of Ute i.fiait H ot the State of South
karolina have growu up lu the executive and
egislative departments of lie government, and
lave become an Intolerable burdell ou the Re
ju&iiein pany and the State; aud whereas me
-tate Republican Convention had put io n ora : -
?mlon for Governor Franklin J. Moses, Jr.,
vho is responsible, with many others, for
nany of these abuses, and who, as speaker of
.he House of Representatives, fraudulently ls
iiied pay ceriidcaies lor an Immense sum, hon
.ecelved large sums from the "armed force"
und, when no such force was in existence,
ind nas corruptly controlled much of the legr?
aci?n of the State; and whereas the R-publicui a
lithe State have generally demanded that
hose who have bee? gullly ol corrupt practices
?hall be ejected from office; and whereas the
?onventlun, instead ol'making an honest and
.rue Republican nomination, nas by Its action
shown that the corruption and incompetency
which have characterized the present admin?
istration are to be perpetuated; and whereas
we, a portion ot the General Convention, have
leit thut, in view of this condition ol affairs,
and of this breach of trust on the part of this
convention, lt Is our duty to withdraw our?
selves therefrom, and by the selection ot a
ticket thoroughly Republican and honest, to
go before the masses of the party for the Jus?
tification of our course; therefore, be lt
Resolved. That we declare our cordial ac?
ceptance of the platform ot the Philadelphia
Convention, and pledge ourselves to the earn?
est support ol Us standard-bearers, General
Grunt and Hon. Henry Wilson.
2. Thai Inasmuch as ihe notoriously corrupt
and Imbecile character of the present State ad?
ministration has brought disgrace upon Re?
publicanism everywhere, and ls now a heavy
burden upon the national parly, Impeding, If
not endangering, Its success, therefore the
Republicans of South Carolina owe lt to them?
selves lo elect such officers as will insure an
honest administration of government, and
thus assure their brethren all over the land
that the disgrace which attaches to the party
in this stite shall be removed.
3. That we pledge the honor of the State to
the payment of ail its debt which bas been
legally aud honestly contracted; but tbat we
will not hesitate to repudiate that portion of it
which ls Illegal, and therefore null and void.
4. Tnat we pledge ourselves to loaugurate
and carry out. an honest administration of the
affairs ot the State, and to resist tne payment
of all fraudulent pay certificates and warrants
upon ihe treasury.
5. That we pledge ourselves, so far as in our
power Iles, toan immediate reduction of the
enormous taxes under which the people are
groaning, and that we believe that this can be
most speedily accomplished by Introducing
honesty and economy into the management
of the various departments of the State gov
C. That the pledges made by the convention
nominating Franklin J. Hoses, Jr., must be
Judged of lo the lieht of bia record, and of
those who sustain him, and when thus viewed,
the people of the State will not hesitate to say
that pledges from such a source have nu value,
out are simply lulended io blind the eyes of
the people io the true purpose of those men,
which purpose must be in me future, as In the
past, (he accomplishment ol DU rely selfish
ends, regardless of the welfare bl the State.
7. Thai, In our Judgment, the beet safeguard
to the public treasury ls ihe election of honest
and lalthlui officers to the various depart
meDls ol'government ; and that the history of
the present administration shows that no stat
ntory safeguard will protect the treasury with
Franklin J. Moses, Jr., al the head ol the gov?
ernment and his willing tools In the other
8. Tnat under our constitution, we believe
any other than an ad valorem system of taxa?
tion to be null and void, and hence that the
general license law, passed at the last session
of the General Assembly, was In viola1 ion ot
the constitution and of the rights of the peo
pie, und could only have originated In a desire
to extort from the people of the State still
larger sums ol money, to be corruptly used by
ihe men who controlled the government.
9 That we blush for our party when we re
member that, under this administration, ihe
education of the people bas been so shame
fullv neglected. In consequence ol the failure
of ihe government to pay promptly and faith
fully the appropriations made by the Legisla
ture; and mat we pledge ourselves to apply a
remedy for this crowning disgrace In the lu

New YORE, August 20.
The result of the Barnard impeachment
rial gives great satisfaction. The man has a
ew personal friends who doubtless sympathize
ivith him in his humiliation and disgrace, but
.he feelings of the community are arrayed
igalnst him bitterly. He is a very bad
nan-as bad as Tweed-and his ju
liclal career has been simply ima?
na us. He gets the severest penalty of the
aw, removal (rom the bench, and dlequallfl
lation from holding ornee In the State during
he rest of his life. The effect of his convlc
lon will be to keep the other Judges straight,
tad eventually to purify the Judiciary. It will
ripe away a stain on our national character,
or ic was but a year ago that Barnard seemed
0 be impregnable In hl9 position on ihe Su
ireme Bench, and yet we have stripped him
>f his honors and put the brand of ''thief on
da brow. If a farther cons?quence will be
hut the absurd system of eleoilng Judges by
he popular vote is abolished, the cost ol over?
growing Barnard, which ts about $50,000,
rill be money well spent.
Extensive preparations are going on for the
real Greelev and Brown ratification meeting
a this city next month. Tue gathering is ej?
ected lo be Ihe largest ever got together on
tils continent, two hundred thoii.-anu peple ai

Inion Square and the neighborhood. The
quere and Fourteenth street, irom Third lo
'ifih avenues, will be hung wiih a myriad ol'
Inlnese lanterns. Tammany Hali, Irving
[all und the Circus Building, opposite Irving
'lace, have already been engaged tor tbe lng
oor meetings, tit Is boped (hat ihe Academ
t Music and Steinway Hall can a.so be sey
ured. There will be eleht oui-door siandr
acb attended by a band of music. The fire-,
porks will be pie ni Ifni and magnificent.
As this great meeting will oe under Hie ans
ices ot tne Liberal Republican as well as ihe
lemocralic committee, many faces strange to
he Democratic maBses will appear on the
arlous platforms. Among the speakers pro?
mised are Sumner, Seymour, achurz, Heu
rlcks, Trumbull, Pendleton, BanKs,Yoorhees,
lilian, Cox, Farnsworth, Groeebeck, Cassius
I. Clay. Robert M. T. Hunter, (present of
he Confederate Se?ale,) and W. fj. S Hinders,
he negro orator-(the raosi cm lons sandwich
lim you ever saw.) Tn ink how we would have
tared at auca an announcement of speakers
eu years ugo.
Ii ls not certain that "the old mao" can be
.resent. He has three agricultural addresses
0 deliver somewhere In the country, and may
ie away at I he time. A striking feature ol tne
lemonstration will be the marching ol the fifty
ir sixty great political clubs from their re
peel Ive headquarters, In different, paris ol the
illy, to the Square. Each whl bj an army,
vitn banuers, torches, transparencies, music,
ind fireworks. One of mese clubs numbers
t.000 members, enough lu Itself io make a ire
nendous mass meetlog in a smaller cn y.
Writing of faces In strange places, I saw
he dignified countenance of General N. P.
lanka ai the National Democratic headquar
ers yesterday. Tho tweniy years' foe ot the
Jemocrais appeared lo be perfectly at home
imong "his new al.lee. He was at tue head
planers two or three hours, laminar y lulli?
ng with everybody, and being closeted for a
tv filie ?Itl," Aunu3Uia"Oi.Ucii, i lie ciiunuiau 01
ihe executive'committee. Now that Biuka
las come over, or, rather, come back, lor he
uaned out in life an unterrlfied Democrat, I
lou't see how he could very well avoid Ihe
lourse he has taken. He has never had any
it the current Rullcal bitterness towards Hie
south; his Instincts uro Democratic, and
nany of his warmest personal friendships
ire with Democrat*. When lt was braving
.munn opinion at the North to do so, (Jual
it.er the cu se of the war,) Bauks wein lo
Kentucky und spent eeveral days at the home
il his trlend, Brecklurldge. Next to Davis
ind Semmea, the splendid Kentuckun was
il that time ihe best hated ot Southerners ul
;he North. General Bunks goes to Maine this
week to take part in the canvass. He ls a
rery effective speaker ; a magnet lc man.
the Democrats and Liberal Republicans will
'un him lor Congress in the Sixth District, lu
Massachusetts, and there ls the best prospect
tf his eleclioD, as he always runs ahead of the
National and state ticket.
The eu ra :ner hus not yet passed away, but
he f.vli and winier dramatic season has been
ormally opened by Booth and Daly. The
ormer began lt last night willi James W.
(Vallack, Jr., and a new sensation play. Daly
ipeus the Grand Opera House to-morrow night
?villi the long expected Parisian spectacle,
'King Carrot." Tne piece at Booth's Is culled
m the bills a "psychological drama." It deals
vltn the effects ot a terrible crime on the mind
if a remorseful and supercilious man. Tho
irincipal character ls peculiarly fitted to the
diosyucracies of Mr. Wallack, who ls, to my
ni nd", one ot the greatest genlu-es lhal ever
rod ihe stage. His "Fagin, the Jew," was an
sxiraordlnary piece of actimr, worthy to be
Hoked with his uncle's "Snylock" or the
ilder Booth's "dlr Giles Overreach." The
Way in which he now appears Is culled "The
Jells." It ls an adaptation of the celeorated
.Juif Polonais," which has been having such
1 run in Europe. Tue plot is repulsive, bur.
Vallack holds his audiences spell-bound and
treal bless lo the end. NTM.

Another Leaf or the History of the
Would-tfe State Treasurer.
The following is aa additional portion of the
letter of Governor Scott to Secretary of State
Cardozo, in reply to the latter's attack upon
Scott and Parker, as published In THE NEWS
of the 9ih instant. It was written and ad?
dressed to Mr. Cardozo at the same time as
the remainder of the letter, but has never be?
fore been published in any newspaper :
In answer to certain specific allegations con?
tained in your letter, I desire to reply as fol?
ist. You state that the attorney-general bad
lurnlebed you with his legal oplulon, that it
was your duty to seal all bouda that the finan?
cial board directed to be sealed. Now. I as?
sert that the financial board never demanded
this duty of you, and whatever bonds you did
Beal, you did BO at the request of the treasurer
or fluanclu" agent, and I repeatedly urged you
not to Peal any oonda without notltjlog me
and your reply was that being elected by the
people, you were Independent of the Gover?
nor, and Intended to discharge any duty de?
volved on you by law, without reference to the
Governor or his wishes.

quired the sale of the whole amount ($6,000,
000) of the steriler: loan bonds to have Daid the
existing public debt is so indefinite that lt 1B
Impossible to determine your meaning. If
you meau what you say, the "public debt,"
then lt ls piala that, even If these booda had
been poid at par, the amount realized would
not bave paid the entire public debt: but if
you mean to say the "floailog debr." then
your statement Is extravagant, for the debt
du? to Mr. Klmpton, amounting to about
$1,267.000. (the payment of which, In Itself,
would have cancelled nearly six million dol?
lars of bonos held by him as collaterals,! and
the unpaid appropriations of the last session of
the Legislature are the only evidences ol
indebtedness, and I know ol no other floating
debts against the Stale.
31. I do not know whether your stated con?
versations with the treasurer In relation to the
sterling loan are corrector no>; but this I do
'know, (which can be attested to by many,)
Hiat members ol the sterling loan commission
have publicly charged that, had lt not been tor
my opposliion. this sterling loan would have
been placed on ibe market, and, according to
their belief, resulted lo Hie amelioration of the
financial condition of the State.
4th. Your triplement that on certain bonds
handed by the financial agent to the treasnrer,
ihat I gave bim authority todo with them what
he pleased, I pronounce asan unqualified false?
hood, as no such conversation ever took place
between myself and the treasurer, or any other
person. The conversation that occurred be?
tween Mr. Klmpion and myself was had io (he
presence of uo third person, and, thereiore, no
person whomsoever could stale aa to the ex?
act words that were used. But even had I
made the remark attributed to me, lt would
have given neitner ihe treasurer nor the finan?
cial agent authority to use bonds at their pleas?
ure. The treasurer ls a bonded officer of tue
State, und therefore the proper custodian of
ali securities when executed. Were I to say
to him that he could do what he pleased with
MICH securities, it would give him no author!i y
to improperly use them, nnd, lu lact. lt would

New Phase? of the Political Situation
The Keactlon Against Greeley Cheek?

ville Convention-O'Co nor will not
Accept the Straight-out Nomination
The Prospect tn Maine.
The shrewd and well-informed New York
correspondent of the Augusta Constitutional?
ist writes ander date of the 20th instant:
The political situation presents some new
phases, which it may be interesting to note.
On the whole, however, lt may be remarked
that the reaction which had set in against
Greeley bas been checked, and bia campaign
seems io be prospering as well as could be ex?
pected, affording assurance of success. Mr.
Greeley has been making some aoeeches
during his tour "away down Eist,"' but han
adroitly avoided paying anything that his
enemies could oarp at, or that friends are
called upon to explain or apologize for; while
he bas succeeded In removing some erroneous
Impressions which many well-disposed people
entertained. Mr. Greeley is a "'capital hand"
in a Presidential canvass, and he manages his
own with the sagacity which he has shown in
behalf of other people.
I say that, on the whole, the Presidential
canvass ls progressing In favor of Mr. Gree?
ley; and yet it were idle to Ignore the fact that
there are two rocks looming up directly In the
channel which lt 1B impossible noe to regard
with some degree of anxiety. I refer to the
Maine election and the Louisville Convention.
Ex-Mayor Kalb fl le s cn, of Brooklyn, a Demo?
crat of great wealth, mach political courage,
and a large personal following, has Just told
me that there will certainly be "straight" Dem?
ocratic .nominations for President and vice
President, and that there will be full tickets
lor electors nominated In this and other States.
Mr. Charlea O'Conor has been extmslvely
named as such candidate. I bave le from ex?
cellent ant hori ty that he witt not accept the
nomination; but In an interview with a corres?
pondent of the Herald, he distinctly and em?
phatically announced his sympathy with the.
LoulBvllle movement. :
80 far as my personal observation goes, the
Democrats opposed to Greeley in various
ways-by going direct for Grant, by declaring
they will not vote, and by favoring a "straight,'*
nomination-are not more numerous than
they have been, probably not so numerous,
but they are much more outspoken and ern?
phatlo. This ls from various causes but
mainly from a desi re to secure a nomination
for some local office and lu the anticipation
that Intimidation will be all-powerful in secur?
ing a favorable considera' lon of their claims.
Some trouble waa to be expected from (his
source. .., ?
The Maine election, though promising a re?
sult qalie as favorable as waa to be looked for,
threatens to make an unsatisfactory compari?
son with last year, when ie did not give half
the usual Republican majority. The greater
Interest felt In the coming election wtil draw
out a much larger vote, and thus, while there
is an aoual falling off In Rialcal strength, !
their majority may be greater than last MT.

A FAMOUS HORSE.
The Career And Triumphs of Lexing?
ton, the Celebrated Racer.
The great racer Lexington, whose death ls
j Just announced, was so remarkable a horse aa
to deaerve more tb on a pasalng notice.
Lexington waa the property of A. J. Alex?
ander, and, though 22 years of age, bia powers
weie unimpaired until very shortly before his
death, tbough he had been blind for some
years past. Lexington was bred by Dr. War?
field, of Lexington, Ky., and waa loaled la
1850; he was by Boston, out of Alice Garneal,
by Sarpeden, dam Rowena, by Sompler: great
grand dam Lady Gray by Robin Hood. Boston
was by 'il m oleo a out of Robin Brown's dam,
own elster to Tuckahoe and Revenge, by Flor
I lzel. Alice Carneal, Lexington's dam, was
foaled In Kentuoky in 1836, and although she
ran second in the first heat ofa four mlle race
to Miss Foote In 7.42, being distanced in the
second heat, she never woo a race.
The record ot Lexlogion as a racer Is trie
best that has ever been made by any on the
turf, and his victories have been many and
brilliant. He was first known to sporting
men as "Darley," and under that name won
his first race, a three-year old stake, at the
May meeting of 1863, at Lexington, mlle beats,
bealing thirteen opponents. He was purchas?
ed by Mr. Ten Broeck. who cbanged his name
lo the oue he bore at the time of his death.
At the meeting referred to he won the two
mile neat race tor three year olds, and he was
eborily after matched for $8600 lor a three
mile race with Sallie Walters, a four-year old
filly, which he won, on the M?tairie Course,
New Orleans, on the 2d of December, 1863,
distancing the filly in the second beat, tba
odds against him oelng $5000 to $3500. The
track was very heavy, but ihe watcn said 6.23*
and 6.24$. He waa a miss in the three-year o d
stake UL the same course, twc-mlle heats,
on January 7, 1854, and paid forfeit. In April,
1854, he won the great State poet stake
for all ages, four-mile heats, beating L*?
compte, 01 Mississippi. Highlander, of Alaba ns,
and Arrow, of Louisiana, distancing Arrow u,
the first, and Higniauder in tbe second heats, .
on a heavy track, in 8.08j, 8.04. The two, Le-,
compte and he, met again on April 8. same
track, for the Jockey Club purse, $2,000, sus?
taining his only defeat, Lecompte winntcg la
two straight heats. In ibe tasiesi time mane up
to that date, viz , 7.26, 7.38?\ Tho oefeat waa
uot aallaiactory, and his o*ner offered to rna
him either against L-compte's best lime, or
against Lecompte himself, for $20.000, four
mlle heats. Eventually a match waa made for
$-20.000, Lexiogtou to run agaloai the fastest
lime ut four miles, that J? Lecompte's 7.26,
over the M?tairie Cuurae, New Orleans. This.,
memorable race occurred April 2, 1865, and
Lexington, carrying 103 pounds-ihre?- pounds
over-*eight-and rioaen by Gilp trick, won
ia 7.19$. which for seveuteen years bas never
been equalled. The time was 1.47 j, 1.62J, 1.51 J
and 1.481-total. 7.194. Gen. Wens stat ted Le?
compte against Lexington for the JocEey Club
purse of $1,000, With an inside Btake ot $2,600
a aide, four mile heats, April 24, 1866, on me
M?tairie Course, and Lexington obtained a de?
cisive victory, winning the first heat in 7.334,
and galloping over In the second heat, as Le?
compte had been withdrawn.
Lexington soon niter broke down, and waa
purchased by Robert A. Alexander, of Ken*
tucky, for fifteen tnousand dollars. The price
was deemed enormous, but the owner said
"that the day would come wnen he would sell
one offspring of the horse they despised for
more money ihan he paid for him." A WW
years later, Norfolk, a son, won both ?WI
lor three-year-olds ai St. Louis, iniMay, 1864,
and the colt was sold to Tneodore Winters, or
Ca ll?rala, for fl.teen thousand MlMhSlaM

nie that amount, would not purchase .be re.
nowned Harry Bassett, the greatest of all his
deNo^thdoarDou5ghbred horse ever sired BO many
famous winners on the turf as Lexington, and
tne offspring ot his sons, themselves victors
on the turf, promise fair to perpetuate bis
fame. His fourmile lime, 7.19$, remains ct?
approached by his successors, and, If lt should
be approached at the forthcoming Saratoga
meena*, lt will be by one of bis eons, Harry
