solution of the present difficulty; bu
appears, from conversations in proi

sarcasm on Kelley und Maynard, Bent up
a substitute for tba tariffand tax bill,
with the title altered so us to read:
"To further iuoreuse taxes und encou?

that the House could tuko no cognizance,

NEW YORK, May 6-Evening.-The

Only one wall of Nibio's Theatre is
left standing. A contract was made this
noon to have it rebuilt by August. All
the scenery of Lalla Rookh, belonging to
the Grand Opera Theatre, which had
boen transferred to Nibio's, was burned,
entailing a loss of $25,000. The differ?
ent actors and no tr eas es at Nibio's lose
from $400 to $1,000 worth of property,
each. A meeting of thc dramatic pro?
fession will be held to-morrow, to adopt
measures of relief for the sufferers.
The various theatres in the city

The loss to the Metropolitan Hotel entry,
by water, is about $50,000. The adjoin?

The assassination of Capt. Wishart by
the Swamp Angels, in the vicinity o'f
their stronghold, the swamps of Robe?
son County, North Carolina, on Thurs?
day, shows that the same spirit of law?
lessness and revenge which has hitherto
animated these ruffians, is still retained
in their midst. Capt. Wishart was ac?
costed on the oars at Shoe Heel and a
conference sought with him by Stephen
Lowrey and Andrew Strong, who pre?
tended they wished to surrender them?
selves to the authorities, and begged
that ho would meet them by special ap?
pointment, and, after having plaood
them under arrest, interest himself with
the Governor in their behalf to obtain a
pardon for them, as they desired to leave
the country. Wishart leoeived a note
from the desperadoes, and, probably be?
lieving the outlaws were sincere in what
they said, subsequently met them ac?
cording to his promise. He did not re?
turn alive to tell the story of this meet?
ing, but the discovery of his body, rid?
dled with buck-shot, proves the victim
was treacherously decoyed to the spot
and assassinated by preconcerted plans,
to satisfy a grudge against him for at?
tempting their oapture last year.

from Naples state that on Sunday the
eruption was slowly subsiding. Several

infuse a higher moral spiiit into our poid

do all this, but we can do it only if, by thr

this ia a momentous period in tho histor

wo behold will not occur every day nor b\

not only loat ~ gres.', opportunity, but
havo struck a blow at tho confidence the

if thia is to be truly a reform movement, ana

There is something moro wanted tban to beat
Grant; not anybody who might by cheap
popularity, or by astute bargains and combi?
nations, or by all the tricks of political wire?
pulling, manage to ?crave together votea
enough to be ducted President. We do not
merely want another, but we want a hottet
President than we now have. We do not want
a more chango of persons in the administra?
tion of thu Government; we want the over?
throw ot a pornicioue syBtem; we want thc
eradication of flagrant abus?e; we want thc
infusion of a loftier moral spirit into our noli
tical organism; we want a Government v. hid
tho boat people ot tho country will be prout

therefore, away with tho cry "Anybody t<
boat Grant," a cry too paltry, too nnworth;
of tho groat enterprise in which wo are en
gagod. I do not atrugglo for the moro punish
ment of au opponent ur for a temporary loam
of power. This ia to mo a thing no lesa mon
important even than our suceras in this cam
paign, and that ia that the American peopl
shall not bo disappointed in tho fruits whicl
our victory is to bear. If wo should fail t*
select a mau who will carry ont the boni?con

boldly-it would bo bsttor had thia movemen

mean only a reformatory movement d?ferre
and an opportunity still; while our failure no'
would mean a groat reform movement sun
to tho level of a farce, a great opportnnit
lost, and the hope of tho people turned int
diacouragoment and disggBt. Let us discar
at least tho fatal error into which many seat
to have fallen, that no statesmanship is r<
quired to conduct the affairs of a great gc
Ycrnment. I candidly believe the people ar
waking up to tho truth, for, unless I groatl
I mistake tho spirit of this day, what the peopl
I now most earnestly demand is not that mei
good intentions but that a superior i a toll
genoe, coupled with superior virtue, shoal
guide our affair?; not that merely an honei
and a popular mau, but that a statesman t
put at the head of our Government.
In seleoting candidates^ for office, polit
cians are accustomed to diacuss tbe questic
of availability. What doos availability mea
in our case? Let us look for the best men v,
have, and from among the very best let i
?elect the strongest. The people earnest
deair? a thorough reform of our Governmen
they want not only a change, but a ohanf
for the better; thoy want aleo, therefore, to I
aeaured that it will be for the better, and th
tho beat candidate is likely to be the mo
available. If wo present men to the suffraj
of the poople whoso character and names a
poal to tho loftiest instincts and asp?ratio
of tho patriot citizen, wo shall have on o
aide that which ought to bo, and now I tra
will ho, the ruling arbiter of politicalqontoal
tho coi lidence of the nation. If that
dono, then auccoas will be certain; then i
can appeal to tho minds and hearts, to t
loftiest ambition of the people with the
arguments and entreaties which spring ot
from a clear conviction of right. Then
shall not appeal in vain for their support
those of our fbllow-citizens who hitherto wc
eoparated from us by partv divisions, who c
aire hi neatly to work for the best intereata
tho country in this crisis, and whom we sh
welcome with fraternal geeting in thia stn
gie for a great cause, whether they call the
selves Democrats or Republicana. Then
fhall successfully overcome those prejudii
which now cou'rout UH, and the inaidu
accusations that thia great convention ii

politicians will fall harmless at our feet,

Let us doapiso as unworthy of onr cause 1
tricky manipulations by which, to the de
