The "Washington correspondent of a
Chicago newspaper has had a square
look at the president, and finds him
much "thinner." Trying to harmonize

Sonthern Eloquence not on the wane.
Peroration in a Kentucky Court.
Gentlemen, you may hang the ocean
on a grapevine to dry, lasso an aval
anche, pin a napkin to the mouth of a
volcano, slum the clouds from the sky
with a teaspoon, paste "to let" on the
moon and stars, but never for a mo

that this charming girl is guilty of the
charge preferred against her.

Senator Bayard lately gave utterance
to the educated, conservative opinion of
the country, when he said: "It was
during the period of the civil war that
the current of centralization set in, and
it has not yet subsided. The question
is whether the Avar being over, we are
to have a settled, restored constitutional
union of the states V If I was asked
the difference between a republican and
a democrat, I would say that the former
would do a thing which he deems polit
ically right, while the latter would do
a thing he deems right, provided the
constitution allowed him. How shall
Ave produce a condition of liberty to the
poor as Avell as to the -rich, the foolish
as Avell as the wise? Simply by estab
lishing something Avhich is above the
passions of the hour. That something
is laAV, framed in an imperishable form.
All men are not equal; the inequalities
in strength and in intellect are evident
everywhere. "We must correct these in
equalities by law. That is Avhat the
constitution Avas framed for favors to
none, justice for all.
How Mr. Tilden Voted.
New York Tribune.
Third avenue, near Twentieth street,
had a sensation about noon yesterday.
At 12 o'clock Samuel J. Tilden, once
president of the United States, cast his
Arote at the polling place in Third aven
ue, near Twentieth street. For some
time before noon a close carriage had
stood before Mr. Tilden's house, 2Jo. 15
Gramercy park. When Mr. Tilden is
sued from his handsome residence he
Avore a loose-fitting black suit, a high
collar and black tie, a loose black over
coat Avith a velvet collar and a slim
black silk hat. IleAvalked slowly down
the steps, folloAved by Mr. Smith, his
private secretary, and they both entered
the carriage. "When the carriage reached
the polling place the driver brought it
round with a flourish and a graceful
curve before the door. Mr. Tilden
walked Avith slow steps across the side
Avalk. At the threshold he stopped and
rested for a minute, Avhile his secretary
pulled out a bunch of tickets. Mr. Til
den took off his hat.
"What is the name?" respectfully
asked one of the inspectors. There was
a next to inaudible murmur, and the
inspector repeated in a loud voice, 'Sam
uel J. Tilden.' After voting he boAved,
the half dozen persons present lifted
their hats, and the sage of democracy
was driven to his home. lie voted the
straight democratic ticket.
