The 2sew York Tribune attempted to
create a wonderful sensation by pub?
lishing a number of alleged cipher tele?
grams purporting to have been sent by
Mr. Tilden's frienils for the purpose of
purchasing the corrupt retaining board
of Florida. The only thing accomplish?
ed was to attract sufficient notice to in?
duce Mr. Tilden to imblish an emphatic
deuial. The republican party rests uu
der the odium of having forced upon the
people a president, who was not elected,
but obtained his place through the
enmiual acts of a corrupt set of scoun?
drels, every one of whom has been
since rewarded by lucrative offices.
This action on the part of the President
renders him a participant in the corrupt
acts of those who defrauded Mr. Tilden
out of the votes of the states of Florida
and Louisiana, and throws the odium
of the whole transaction upon there
publican party. To relieve themselves
of this burden ju*t before the fall clcc.

whatever effect it may have liad, has

the rub. We generally endeavor to let
each man tiud this out lor himself, but
so great is the difficulty that many have
experienced in deciding this question,
that they will wait until the returns
come in before they will entirely deter?
mine it. The vote in Slanandoah will
be very small, unless something shall

Much interest is felt ?u political cir?
cles about party supremacy in the next
congress. If there should be three
candidates for president.as there proba?
bly will be, it is not unlikely that the
choice of president will be made by the
House. It is now almost generally ad?
mitted that the democrats will have the
majority of soeiubcrs, bat this is not
sufficient, as the ( institution requires

a large quantity of hay, cloysrseed, etc.,
nearly one thousaud tons of straw,

The Chicago Times says: In the

amazingly upon rhe spoils of office,
while the nigger plied the shovel and

peculiar institution spread throughout
the laud. But the uiggcr said, let the
Democracy be divided against itself; let
it become an outcast and a wanderer
upon the earth, seeking for the spoil?
and not finding them. And it was so.
Now those are the generations of the
nigger; The nigger begat the Republi?

begat the Greenback. And the grcen
back was made flat money and begat
the flat-money lunatic, which is the rag
