Morrill, of Vermont, all Republicans; Trum
bull, of Illinois, and Rice, of Arkan
sas, .Liberal; and Blair, of Missouri;
Macbln, of Kentucky, and Tickers, of Mary
land, Democrats. Of these, Orris S. Perry,
of Connecticut, John Sherman, of Ohlc,
Justin S. MorrU, of Vermont, and O. P.
Morton, of Indiana, have already been re
elected by the Legislatures of their respec
tive States. In California, Aaron A. Sar
gent, Republican, has been chosen to su
persede Mr. Cole. Mr. Sargent is now a
member of tbe House of Representatives,
and achieved considerable notoriety last
winter in connection with tbe project of
leasing Goat island to the Central Pacific
railroad company.
Tbe Kentucky Legislature has selected
Thomas C. McCreery, Democrat, to
take the place of Garrett Davis, tem
porarily filled by the Gubernatorial
appointment of Mr. Macbln. Mr. Mc
Creery was formerly in the Senate. Iowa
has supplanted Mr. Harlan by William B.
Allison, Republican, who served for many
years in the House. The Legislature of
Maryland has chosen George R. Dennis,
Democrat, to take the seat of Mr. Vickers.
Mr. Dennis was a member of the Legisla
ture which elected him. Oregon has cho
sen John H. Mitchell, Republican, for Mr,
Corbett's seat. Mr. Mitchell is unknown
to fame on this side of the continent, but
is understood to be the confidential attor
ney of Beu. Holladay, tbe Pacific Railroad
man. New Hampshire has selected Bain
bridge Wadleigb, Republican, to tafce Mr.
Patterson's place. Mr. Wadleigh .was a
member of the Legislature which elected
him. Georgia having chosen a Democrat
ic Legislature, the Democrats will gain a
Senator in place of Mr. .Hill. As to Flori
da, the result of the election is uncertain.
In North Carolina a Democratic Legisla
ture has been elected which will insure a
Democratic Senator in the place of Mr.
Pool. Governor Vance was the nomi
nee of tbe caucus of Democratic members,
but a portion of the friends of Gen. Merri
xnon withdrew before bis nomination was
made. The ballot on the 26th inst. showed
that be lacked seven votes of an election.
The Moses Republicans carried the South
Carolina Legislature, and there is an im
pression that Robert B. Elliott, one of the
present negro members of the House of
Representatives from that State, will suc
ceed Sawyer, though Gov. Scott aspires to
tbe position and as he has plenty of money,
It is thought he may buy off enough of
Elliott's supporters to elect himself. In
Pennsylvania and New York, Messrs.
Cameron aad Coakling esp;cc to be again
returned. Tho Democrats have secured a
majority of the Legislature of Alabama,
but the Radical b seceded and or
ganized a "Legislature" of their
own, and they have so for refused
to return to their seats intheregukrLegis
lature. By tbe act of Congress, the elec
tion of Senator will take place on Tuesday,
the 3d of December. The' efforts of the
Radicals have bt-en directed to prevent the
- Democrats electing the Senator, and it is
to be seen whether they can succeed. Tbe
Louisiana Legislature haviDg been canled
by tbe coalition, Henry C. Warmoth, Lib
eral, the present Governor, will probably be
Senator in place of Mr. Kellogg. Texas
has elected a Democratic Legislature, so
that after thefouithof March Mr. Flana
gan's rhodomontade will no longer rever
berate in the capitol. Arkansas will prob
ably send a full-blooded administration or
Clayton Republican to take Mr. Rice's
place, while in Missouri the Democrats elect
Frank Blair his own successor or
some other Democrat. The Grant
men having triumphed in Illinois,
the successful candidate for Governor,
Richard J. Oglesby, will probably take Mr.
Trumbull's place. From Wisconsin Mr.
Howe will probably be returned, while the
advices from Nevada indicate that Nye will
be superseded by J. P. Jones (Republican),
who is now superintendent of silver mines.
Kansas is expected to return S. C. Pome
roy. In Massachusetts there is a lively
contest for tho seat to be vacated by Henry
Wilson when ho is sworn in as Vico Pres
ident on tbe 4th of March next, for it ap
pears he is not going to resign until the
close of the present Congress. The Boston
Post says:
The e&me which is being played tor the
Senatorial succession in Massachusetts has
reached such an interesting stage that the
Sally Advertiser, In the excitement of the
moment, has shown its hand. The love
which it bears for Secretary Boutwell, and
its great admiration for his administration of
the treasury department are expressed in an
emotional manner at considerable length;
and this tribute is found, on further peru
sal, to serve admirably as a prelude for a
still warmer endorsement of the Hon. Mr.
Hoar. The Daily is more than ever Im
pressed with a tense of the peculiar advis
ability of Secretary Boutwell's continuance
in his present oliice, seeing that such a
course would remove one of the chief ob
Btailes fr jm the pth of Mr. Hoar, whose
eiectiou to the senate it so evidently pre
fers. There Is a discreet silence maiu
tsiaed, In the mean while, concerning Mr.
Butler, whese uneasy ghost troubles the
other prominent caudidntes for Mr. Wihon's
seat; and no hint of opposition from the di
rection of Eisex Is lucluded In tho Adver
tiser's kind admonitions to the secretary re
garding the legion of "friends" of Mr. Hoar
in all parts of the State. From present ap
pearances, Massachusetts bids fair to be
even "richer in candidates for the Senate"
than th;j Daily intimates; and it Is safe to
assert that, as it says the contest will be
"iuterestiug" to the public, if not to either
Mr. Boutwell or Mr. Hor and his faithful
and numerous "friends."

New York, N07, 27. The annual re

Is quite lengthy., "Its. sain feitare relates
to tne Indian policy- of the goverment,
which is fully reviewed. Aa exhaustive

With in accordance with tbe plan now be
ing pursued towards the more tract
able and friendly Indians, and. which it
is contended is the only true permanent
policy of the Government. The condition
of the Indians who are being constantly
invaded by civilizing Influences in the far
west is considered, and it is urged tnat tne
state of want to which the tribes are thus
reduced should be provided for by directing
these people to pursuits consistent with pro
gress and civilization, and that the Govern
ment should supply them with subsistence
during, lad period of initiatory experiment.
From tne statistics and ngures appended
to the report, it appears that exclusive of

Yanderbllt's Son-In-taw.
Horace F. Clark in his testimony yester
day before the referee concerning tho arrest
of proceedings against Jay Gould, said that
previous to the Boston lire Smith, Drew,
Travers and others were short of North
west and they knew Gould was long of the
stock. Alter the fire Smith and his party
bought up a lot of the stock thinking they
could sell at an advantage of the panic on
the 23d of November. He was told Gould
was to be arrested. Therefore to avert the
pauic which would be likely to follow in
the stock exchange he and Mr. Schell decided
to ball Gould. He judged that tho arrest
was a piece of stockjobbing.
Augustus Schell made an affidavit In the
suit to-day which corresponds in detail with
that of Horace F. Clark.
A Stay of Proceedings.
Judge Fanchor to-day granted a stay of
proceedings in the suit of the Erie Railway

"W hat Jay Snjs or Taa.
Jay Gould said this afternoon, referring,
to Commodore Vanderbilt's card published
yesterday, that tbe Commodore must, bo in.
hi dotage. The transaction to which, Van
derb.lt refers, said Gould, was simply this:
"In 1868 Vanderbilt held $10,000,OOO..Erie
stock. I offered to take fitty thousand
shares from him if he would bold the bal
ance for CO days, and give me a call' for it.
He agreed to do so, but broke his promise.
He went on 6elllug the stock from day to
day, and when he had sold all, he delivered
all in one day, attempting to create a panic
under the impression" that T wdul.d riot be
able to carry my stp&'ki. He .failed in bis
purpose and feels sorej'over it. It is a pity
to see the Commodore falling into dotage."
An order has befin granted by the Su
premo Court for theexamtnation of S. L.
M. Barlow in reference to the Jay Gould
proceedings. "

A suit In the United States Circuit Court
brought by the Wisconsin Fire and Marine
Insurance Company to recover from David
Daws and others advances made by the
company on 26,000 bushels of wheat, the
advances having been transferred to A. T.
Smith & Co., who transferred the wheat to
the defendants and failed to pay the ad
vance made upon it by the plaintiffs, was
settled to-day, the jury awarding the plain
tiff $36,278. The plaintiffs contended that
the advances were in the nature of a lien
on the wheat, following it until the ad
vances were repaid. It was contended by
the defence that as they had purchased the
wheat in good faith they were not liable,
and that the payment ef advances made to
a second party could not be enforced against
a third party purchasing of the second party
in good faith the remedy of the party
making the advances being against the
second party, the one to whom the advances
were directly made.

The Crimes of a Political Sane Con
fesslou of .the Philadelphia Assas
sin, Mara.
Hngh Mara, the Philadelphia assassin,
who has been sent to the penitentiary a
short time for shooting Alderman McMul
lin, has made a sworn confession of the
crimes. His affidavit contains startling dis
closures. He avers that his attempt to
murder Revenue Officer Brooks was insti
gated by a local political gang, whose names
he furnishes. When Mara's heart failed
him, be was bullied until the attempted
murder was accomplished, and when he
had done the work he was
secreted for weeks, carried from
place to place, and paid five dollars
for the fiendish job. Then follows
particulars as to an aliol, which, he says ,
was fabricated for his defense. The terrible
coal oil fire at Ninth and Wharton streets,
was instigated by the same gang. Men,
women, and children were startled from
their beds on a winter night, with flames
around, and forced to fly fretn their burning
homes, only to be engulfed in rivers of
flames sweepinghrough the streets. Noth
ing can be more horrible than the contem
plation of this calamity as a deliberate work
of organized crime. On the list of accusa
tions is tbe charge that the attempted des
truction of the Union League House by fire
was the wprk of the same crowd; as were
also the murders of Peteis and Mannox,
and the enormous burglary of the Saving
Fund Bank on Twelfth and Chestnut, in
A Startling Exhibit or Crime.
A startling transcript has been made
from the criminal records of -this city.
Since the 1st of January, 1870, there have
been one hundred and thirty-ulne casss of
homicide, within the city limits. Of these
man killers, six committed suicide at once,
ten were discharged by the coroners,
twelve concealed themselves beyond find
ing, and two, although known, were never
arrested, and one died of wounds after be
ing arrested. Of tba one hundred and
eight remaining, whose cases came before
the District. Attorney, one wa3 sent to the
House of Refuge, and a second (to the in
sane asylum; sixty-one have been, brought
-to trial, of whom seventeen were acquitted
and forty-four convicted. Of those con
victed two have been awarded new trials,
two have been executed, four are sen
tenced to be bung, but are now awaiting
the decision of tbe Court of Ap
peals. Three havo. been sen
tenced to the State prison for lite, one for
fif can years, and the others for less than
seven i cars. In sixteen cases indictments
have never been found; in eleven others
indictmeuts have been found, but no trial
has taken place, and three, it is said, have
been discharged on ball after indictment.
In the abstract of the records, sixteen
cases of those sent to the District Attorney
have never been heard of since. Their
names do not appear in any official paper,
and what has become of them no one
knows. It appears from the records that
the average punishment for killing a man
in this city is three years' Imprisonment In
the State prison.
A Foreign Importer.
The latest victim of a foreigner pretend
ing to belong to a wealthy and distinguished
British family, Ls Miss Mary Louisa Mapes,
of Poughkeepsie, daughter of Perry Mapes,
a retired North River steamboat captain.
The flashy adventurer gives his name as
Henry Porter Tenison, and claimed to be
a lineal descendant of the Archbishop of
Canterbury. He first met the Mapes fami
ly on a railway train, and behaving rudely
to Mrs. Mapes, called afterward at their
house to apologize. He was coldly received
by the parents, but the romantic daughter
look a fancy to the showy stranger, and,
after a short acquaintance, eloped with him;
was married secretly In a Poughkeepsie
church, and went to Albany. She repented
and returned home, and her father soon
discovered that Tenison had another wife,
who sailed from Detroit for Ireland about
five weeks ago. Tenison is now in the
Poughkeepsie jail, charged with bigamy.

Rod Hlckey, a noted liveryman of this
city, sold bis wonderful mare JXance some
time. ago. Hearing of the reputation of
JNance as a beer-drinker, I interviewed the

he got up on the avenue, and Nance be

awful Bick. Dorry didn't know what the

said Dorry, 'I don't know, but she's awful

old soldier, pricked up her years, shook
her head, and went like lightnln. Well, it

he'd stop at every tavern on the road.
She got to be a reg'lar old bom, so I sold
her to a farmer from Hooslck. One day he
came In town. Says he, 'Was Nance ever

she used to get sick pretty ofen.' Says he,
'Well, she's been a pretty sick horse since

Charley Defreest, another livery man of
this city, has a horse that chews too&cco
Whenever Charley takes out his paper for
a chew, if he happens to be in the stable,
and around this particular horse, she
comes up to him with a knowing look in
her eye, rubs her nose against his shoulder,
and begs for a chew. He generally gives
her the old "cud" and takes a fresh one.
She swallows' it down with apparent gusto,
and then retires to her stall satisfied. This
is a fact.
A California Storx of a Telegraph
Tbe following story originated, we be
lieve, with the San Francisco Post :
"It often happens that telegraphers are
called into service at. the representation of a
stage play, in which occurswhat is known
as a 'telegraph scet-e,' such as the one shown
in Byron's 'Across the Continent,' or Bou-
cicault's 'Long btrike, and It Is then the
operator behind the scenes manages to
amuso himself by 'talking' to tha 'frater
ity' in the audience, unknown of course to
most or those present, who nnd no mean
ing In the 'click' of the Instrument.
"As an evidence that the operators of our
city are not behiudhand in the matter of
having their fun, the following Is related of
Jim , a wen-known attacne oi tne
Western Union:
"During.the theatrical season of last year,
tne drama pi 'lne iiong strike" wis pro
duced at one of our theatres, and for the
manipulation of the telegraph instrument,
which plays an important part in tho most
important act or the play, Jim was en
"His position was such that he could see
the audience without being seen, and when,
upon taking his position, discovering in the
auditorium a brother operator rrom Aiem
phis, by name Pepper who had that day
arrived in town he determined to nave a
little sport on his own account.
"Accordingly, when the the time came for
the sending of tbe nrst dispatch, Jim loud
ly sounded on his machine the words'How
are yon, renpen"
"The" quick professional ear of Pepper
caught the words instantly, and wondering
'who tho deuce It was,' straightened up and
stared at the stage as If he would have
given two dollars and a half to know some
thing more.
"'Pepper, how's your mother?' came
from the instrument, and Pepper, thorough
ly mystified, turned confidingly to bis part
ner to express his utter astonishment at the
most singular circumstance.
"As luck would have it, the auditorium
held quite a delegation of telegraphers, who
by this time saw that Jim was up to one of
his old tricks, and with one accord they
began to look about the theatre for 'Pepper.'
"Jim saw the effect of his experiment,
and enjoyed hlmseir hugely.
"Pepper hadn't got through telling his
girl all about it, wnen there came an
other message.
" 'That won't do, old Pepper, I know you
well, and you hadn't better be fooling that
confiding creature witn any soic non
sense." "This roused the telegraph boys to the
very pitch of curiosity, and many of them
stood np, gazing longingly about them as
if their only object in life was to discover
"Pepper felt that they knew him, and
the confusion which had been gradually
covering his handsome features, grew into
mortification when he saw so many eyes
evidently leveled at him, and at last culmin
ated in bis withdrawal from the theatre.
But Jim was bound to give him a parting
shot, and as he faded from view he heard
borne to his ears: 'Good by, Pepper. Put
your trust In Providence, but keep your
powder dry.'
"Those who appreciated the affair were
much amused, and so, indeed, was the vic
tim himself, when, on the following day, he
learned who had so neatly captured him."

The celebrated Lotus Club of New York
gave Stanley, the Herald's African-Livingston
correspondent, a brilliant reception
last week at which he made a speech of
wmca tne touowing is a oner report:
Mr. President of the Lotus Clcb Mem
bers and Gentlemen: Soma five years ago
I left New York. I remember tha day very
well. Snow and sleet drove tempestuously
through tha air. Through the Narrows
passed th8 big steamer that could hardly
plough its way through, storm and fog that
was to bear me on to begin my mia&on to
report the proceedings in the Abyssinian
war. Two or three days ago I returned,
and everything was almost new to me new
scenes, new thoughts and new people. I
could hardly think, conld hardly believe
that I had ever been In New York before;
so changed, so different did everything ap
pear to me. I could, In fact, hardly
fancy that I was the man who' went
out of New York five years before, on that
cold, chilly day Id December, with a sort
of presentiment that there was something
before me that might end rather ruthfully
for me before I should return, so different
was my arrival back the day before yester
dayl What caused UP What think you
sent that steamer and-those kind hearted
gentlemen who met me, and had flying out
a red flag, with the words, "Welcome
home, "Henry M. Stanley?" (Applause.)
It was the same good fortune that followed
my steps from thefist and enabled me to
excel the English correspondence. ' and to
send news home to the New York Herald
the first that Magdala was captured,
and that King Theodoras was killed.
The good fortune that enabled me to
do this followed me into Africa and
never forsook me even up to this evening,
when you have assembled to take ma home.
So different from the reception I had antic
ipated! I never would have believed it, even
had I been told of it, because the feeling
that predominated with me, was, as I re
turned home: Had. I done enough? Was
there anything left undone? Conscience
told me no; but still I thought that there
were other people to Judge of this besides
myself. I might have said to mvself I have
done enough after I reached Zanzibar. I
waited there for news and still I asked my
self the same question. Then through
Aden I received a dispatch from tha Herald,
informing me lhat the thanks of Mr. Ben
nett were sent to me for having discovered
the great discoverer. (Applause.) Thi.i
opened my eyes. I returned after that. I
came to Paris and Marseilles,
and there I saw the correspondent
of the Daily Telegraph, who
waited to Interview mo. (Laughter.) I
thought it strange that I, a stranger, should
be sought to be interviewed, but Dr. Hos
mer, of tho Herald, told me to go through
the process, to be calm and cheerful, and
that no harm could come to me. (Laughter.)
I went to Paris and found people after me,
desiring my photograph, -and I said to my
self, "I have done something after all."
Then I came to London rather jelated, and
that elation grew upon me till I was all at
onca and unexpectedly dumped Into a cold
bath at Brighton. (Cheers and laughter.)
Lo and behold! the Royal Geographical So
ciety was there assembled in awful con
clave. They wanted to hear something of
Africa and Livingston and where I had seen
him. I went on to tell them, till I noticed
their dark frowns and suspicious
looks, and I sat down very tamely,
Indeed, In the midst of them. They
had invited me to meet them. "Would
you be kind enough," they said,
"to meet us, Mr. Stanley, and tell us al
about your discovery of Mr. Livingstone
and Tanganyika. Let us know all about
how Mr. Bennett gave these $50,000 for
these secrets that you have have the kind
ness to tell us all about them." But if they
were astonished when I went to Brighton,
I was more astonished that I was not going
to get even thanks. They said "If you
v ere an English correspondent you might
receive favor from us, but as you are an
American correspondent you must take
what comes." "Thansk," I said, sir, "I will
take it with a good grace." What is his
report to Colonel Grant? He was an au
thority. They talked of Speke, the com
panion of Grant, and their report of Lake Lu-
alaba, and they said, "For God's sake! the
man is dreaming; he Is a thousand miles
out of his reckoning. He doss not know
what he is talking about." Thoy were as
tonished that one traveler should criticise
another; that in seventy-five degrees Living
ston and Grant said gorillas bad been dis
covered, and this man says no such thing,
I recollect a man going to Paris and meet
ing an Englishman that bad seen St. Paul's
and mentioned it as a great thing. The
other said that there could be no such build-
ing'ln London as St. Paul's Cathedral, as
mere was no such uathedral in Paris
Laughter. Speaking of this, he was ad
monished to hear the sagacious Sir Charles
Dilke raise his hand to his Jove-like brow
and say-that he was satisfied that Living
stone bad not discovered the source of the
It lie. Why, pray? Because Dr. Swoneford
says that the Lualaba never flows from
those chain of mountains, and that, there
fore, ic flows into the Nile. Tha Geo
graphical Society said that river must be
the Nile, or the Congo; but, you know, it
is very uuuious. (.Laughter.) Mr. Stan
ley reviewed In a very pleasing, yet some-
wnat caustic style, the comments and crit
icisms or the ueograpalcal Society upon his
reports of discoveries, and while ha gave
full credit to those who bad to some extent
preceded him in African exploration, main
tained in tne light ot recent letters from
Dr. Livingstone, his own unprecedented,
successful exploration into the unexplored
wilds of Central Africa and his discovery of
ur. .Livingstone, whose late or whereabouts
was so long an enigma to tha world. Mr.
Stanley was repeatedly applauded, and at
the close received a regular ovation ot
The Trick ef a Prospective
From tho Danbary 2Tews.
A rather contemptible trick was played on
one oi .our cierKs Sunday night. He
bought a cut-glass. bottle of cologne, with a
glass stopper and pink ribbon, to present to
a young lady he is keeping company with;
but on reaching the house he felt a little
embarrassed fur fear there were members of
the family present, and so he left the beau
tiful gift on tho stoop and passed in. The
movement was perceived by a graceless
brother of the young lady, who appropriated
the cologne to his own use, and refilled the
bottle with hartshorn from the family Jar,
and then hung round to obsorve the result.
In a little while the young man slipped out
on the stoop, and securing the splendid gift,
slipped back again into the parlor, where,
with a few appropriate words, he pressed it
upon the blushing girl. Like a good and
faithful daughter as she was, aha at once
hurried Into the presence of her mother, and
the old lady was charmed. They didn't put
up scent stuff like that when she was a girl;
it was kept in a china tea-cup, and it was
held together by samples of all the family's
hair. But she was very much pleased with
it. She drew out the stopper, laid the beau
tiful petals of her nostrils over tha aperture,
and fetched a pull at the contents that fairly
made them bubble. Then she laid the bottle
down, and picked np a brass-mounted fire
shovel instead, and said she, as soon as she
could say anything, "Where is that stinking
brat?" And he, all unconscious of what
had happened, was in front of the mirror
adjusting his necktie and smiling at himself.
And here she found him and said to him:
Ob, you are laughing at the trick on an
old woman, are you? you wall eyed Ieperi"
And then she basted him one on the ear.
And be being by nature more eloquent with
his legs than his tongue, hastened from
there, howling like mad, and accompanied
to the gate by that brass-mounted shovel.
He says he would give everything on earth
if he could shake off the impression that a
mistake had been made.
