Senator Heck's Views.
Senator B>ck, of Kentucky, is a
very sagacious, cautious politician,
•a well as sound statesman. He
la confidant that tlio nest Con
gress will be Democratic, notwith
standing California should elect
Radicals, as gains more than suffi
cient to cover this aud ail other
Democratic losses will be made in
Ohio, Indiana,, Illinois, New York,
Pennsylvania, Missouri, South
Carolina and Florid*. Hj is lv
favor of unseating Kellogg and
giving the seat to Judge Spoflord,
who was honestly elected. Con
cerning Grant, he thus expresses
hit views: "If any mau takes him
for a fool he is mistaken. He
knows what be is about. His tarry
in Europe, where his expenses are,
I have no doubt, paid by the bond
holders and capitalists of the coun
try, and where he baa been lion
ised and feted by royalty and tbe
nobility, keeps him out of politi
cal complications at homo and
•till fresh in tbs minds of the peo
ple as a great man. Next year,"
he said, "when he returns home by
way of Bau Francisco, he will
have such a reception through the
country from California to Phila
delphia as never man got before
Dim. Why, George Pullman is
building now, I am told, twelve of
the finest coaches ever placed on
wheels especially to convey him
and his friends on this trip. A
tremendous fictitious enthusiasm
wtll be worked up for him at
every station, and then the cry
Will be raised th.it lis must accept
the nomination lo defereuco to tbe
Will of the people as thus ex
pressed, uud Humiliate I lie will be.
It will bo the duty of the honest
pressor tho laud lo discount the
effect of the reception by exposing
the mean* by which it will be
caused, aud thu< npf»n the eyes of
the people to its fraudulent char
In reference t > the character of
the campaign of 133}, Senator Beck
says: "The leaders of the National
party—Sam Care, Uluuton Dun
can, Ben Butler, etc.—are playing
into the ban Is of the Grant iv ive
uieut, and they expect In be re
warded theref >r in due lime. Tlie
Republicans will have them make
Incendiary speeches about tlie
rights of property, and thou they
will use these utterancei as evi
dences that tlie country requires
the services of v strong man at Its
head to protect the interests of all
capitalists and land-owners, of
whatever degree. Thus they hope
to bind together all the monetary
aud landed interests of *tiie coun
try In favor of Graut, and by thus
doing they hope to sweep him into
power by a resistless majority."
It was exactly to this purpose t lint
the arch-agitator, Kearney's, mis-
Sim on that, side was intended.
Bu; the people, forewarned, will
be forearmed, aud the Democracy
will triumph in spite of the ma
chiuatious of all (lie political trick
sters and monopolists, with Grant
at their head.
The Other Man of Beaconsfield.
The world it full of resonant
praises of Binj imiu Disraeli, Ear!
of Beaconsfield, because of his won
derful triumph at the Berlin Con
gress. People who never before
read auy of his works are now
hunting them up, to find, if possi
ble, in their piges, traces an J pre
monitions of his phenomena! ca
reer. It is pointed out how lv "Vivi
an Grey," when he was made a peer,
there was a fancied Earl Bjucoi.s
field, attending au lin iginary cau
cus of statesmen, an J lv recalled
the incidents of a dinner at which
Vlviau arrived late, only to reject
a seat reserved at the lower end of
the table, aud to force a seat at the
upper end between uuwilling aud
protesting guests. Disraeli, it is
argued, was really, at that early
day, talking about himself, anil de
picting his own future career as it
appeared to his imagination. Many
years ago Disraeli put this sig
nificant line into the mouth of ouo
of his characters: "The King alone
above thee and thy friend."
It is not a little singular that thu
man who lias, la 1873, made the
name of Beaconsfield so famous,
narrowly escaped missing that ti
tle altogether. No l»ss ti person
than Edmund Burke was singled
out, in the last century, for the
lordship of Beaconsfield, when the
death of his son Richard struck tbe
ol I man down and made him disre
gardful of all earthly honors. How
terrible that blow was to Burke he
lias left ou record in words that
can only perish with the language.
"The storm has gone over me,
nnd I lie like one of those old oaks
which the lata hurricane has scat
tered about me. lam stripped of
all my honors; I am torn up by
the roots and lay prostrate ou the
earlb. * • * lam alone. I have
none to meet my enemies In the
gates. * * * I live lv au inverted
order. They who ought to havo
succeeded me have gone before me.
They who should have been to me
as posterity are in thu place of an
QDuring the three years succeid
ing this never-to-be forgotten sor
row, Mr. Burke was never roused
to anything like bis old form un
less attacked, and then the pros
trate oak became as majestic on
tbe earth as It had been when tow
ering above the giants of the forest.
He smote tbo Duke of Bedford, hip
and thigh, In defense of the pen
sion, and made even William Pitt
quail because of his attempt to ne
gotiate with France a regicide
peace. These were the last grand
expiring throes of one of tlie loft
iest intellects the universe his be
held. He was laid to rest nt the
little church of Beaconsfiehl by the
side of the sou he loved so well anil
mourned so deeply and broken*
heartedly. Tbe chronicler relates
that he would have slept at West
minster Abbey, but for bis own ex
pressed desire to repose elsewhere.
It is said that, when a young Irish
lad, soon after bis first arrival In
Loudon, be visited the great Ab
bey, of which he wrote: " Yet,
after all, do you know I would
rather sleep lv Ibe southern corner
of a little country churchyard than
iuthe tomb of the Ceputets, I
should like, however, that my dust
should mingle wit ii kindred dust.
The good old expression, ' family
buryiug ground,' has something
pleasiug iv it, at least for me."
The present Earl of Beaconsfield
may be none the lees proud that
the first honor of that title was in
tended for Ed maud Burke, whose
name after all, may reign longer
in the memories of niuii. Both the
men of Biaeonstield owe much of
prominence to that magic and
wizard-like faculty called imagiua
tlve or creative faculty. It will be
well with the later Beaconsfield if
tim« shall deal with him as gener
ously as it has with the first man
who made tho name memorable.
EJmund Hurko had a mon philo
sophical mind thau Benjamin Dis
raeli, aud, in many respects, is
the nobler character of the
two. But it may ho granted that
Disraeli has made the more pic
turesque statesman and given a
halo to Beaconsfield that even
Burke did not. Like Burke, too,
he is alone. No son of bis will
ever succeed to his title, and it
would be, not altogether unfitting,
lhat a man so peculiar and sui
generis, in spite of bis fondness for
pageantry uud pomp, should prefer
to slumber In death by tho side of
Burke than moulder away among
kings ami warriors in the old Ab

San Bitkna Ventura, August

animated discussion, tho jury in
the Lord case came into Court at 5
p. M. and informed the Court tiiat
there was no possibility of agree
ing upon a verdict, whereupon the
Judge discharged them from
farther consideration of the case.
It is ascertained that ou retiring
the jury stood eleven for conviction
to one against, but after innumera
ble ballots settled down to nine for
acquittal against three. For the
last twelve hours no further
changes took place and it was dual
ly decided to inform the Court that
no agreement was possible. Tbe
evidence of the witness Cyrus
Kenney, who was totally unim
peactml, is believed to have caused
tbe majority to not as they did. To
believe him Ihey have had to to
tally disregard tlio testimony of
tbe'State's evidence, Jones. As tel
egraphed yesteiday, this verdict
was looked"for. This closes the

who were present at tho killing. It
is suid that Jones will be arrested
for arson In assisting at the burn

to be no testimony except his own.
