We reproduce our table of the vote oi
the central states in order to give the
correct vote of Delaware, and to make a
comparison of the vote ot 1868. It will
be seen that the net democratic gain is
29b,00o. A larger gam would be snown
by making the comparison with ls72,
but in such case it would be properly
held that that election went so largely
by default as not to afford a true test.

In view of this immense vote and de-
cisive majority, tne repuDiican party
ought to lortify itself exceedingly strong
beiore undertaking to override it.
Fract enoueh to vitiate the action of
the South Carolina returning board have
been already discovered by the committee
of conarress now at Columbia. It has
been admitted by a member of the board
that the contents of thirty ballot-boxes
from strong democratic precints were
not counted at all, while evidence of the
outrageous swindling of the Chamber
lain gang crops out on every hand. The
scoundrels are industriously trying to
cover their tracks and to run off wit
nesses of their villainy, but the proof is
conclusive and its production certain.
The shipments of freight west and
south have fallen off ereatly since the
consDiracv of the republican office-hold
ers to seize the government has been de
velored. We fear that before the mid
dle or February tbe republican merchants
in New York who nave tacitly encour
aged this criminal attempt to subvert our
free institutions, win nave aeep cause 10
reirret that thev did not take a more
manly stand against the revolutionary
movements of their political leaders.
Xew York Sun.
This information concerning the Lou-
i hi an a count is bnel, exact and con
venient for reference; "Tne Louisiana
returning board was composed exclu
sively of republicans. Although the
returns were opened in the presence of
the two committees, they were can
vassed in secret session, from which all
democrats were excluded."
A prevailing impression in this city,
ava the Washington correspondent of
the Cincinnati Lnquirer, is that both
houses will decide that each has the
nower vested in it to go behind the face
1 ' . . t r t . .
01 tne returns, ii bucu a uoiisirucuou
is agreed upon the election will be
thrown into the house, and the result
will be that Tilden will be elected presi
dent by that body, and that Wheeler will

Intimidation in Louisiana.
Mr. Ihurman's Speech in the Senate.
Sir, I can tell you that these charges
of intimidation will not cease as long as
under tbe mere pretense of intimidation
you can overthrow the votes of the peo
ple of a staU. As long aa you have this
machinery of a returning board, a per
fectly irresponsible returning board, ac
cording to the present claim that on
vairu? notion ot intimidation you can
change the result ef an election, as in
the case of this very same James Aladi-
son Wells' parish in the count of 1875,
who disfranchised his whole narish on
his own affidavit, deprived it of ita three
members whom it had elected to the leg
islature, and put in three men who bad
not been elected,, on his own mere affi
davit, alleging intimidation when he was
not there, his athdavit not made in pub
lic, not submitted to the inspection of
the public, but filed after that board
went into secret session, and was never
seen by the men who were elected, never
seen by their counsel, never seen by the
public as long as such things as that
can be done there will be claims of the
votes of these states being controlled by
intimidation. Why, Mr. President, it
is a new feature introduced into the
American constitution and the American
system of government. We did think
once that the only question about an
election was, who has a majority of the
votes? That is what we thought; that
is what our fathers thought when they
made our constitution; but that is not
the question any more. The question is
not who baa the majority of the votes,
but who has the majority of the men
who count the votes ?
If you have a returning board with a
majortity ready to count out democratic
candidates, they have a power aa great
as the tribunals of the Eoman people had
to veto the voice ot the people; not
simply to veto what the people have
done, but to determine what the people
ought to have done, according to their
judgment of what they think to be beat.
That is it, sir.
And now my lleague, in the very
impassioned ana very eloquent speech he
made to-day, says that this results, as I
understand him, from the color line, f
tell him that I stand prepared to prove
that the responsibility for the color line
rests on his party. I tell him that I
stand prepared to prove that nrllioim ol
the people's money have been expended
to establish the color line. I know very
well why the right of suffrage waa given
the colore d man. It is not a matter of
speculation; it ia not a matter of infer
ence ; it was openly avowed when the
fifteenth amendment was under consider
ation ; openly avowed in this senate, that
the republican party needed 801.000
gre votes that could be given if the
fifteenth amendment were adopted ; that
the republican party needed them, and
VOL. XXII .NO. 25.
that without them the republican party
would lone its power in the United
States. Yes, sir, the republican party
did need thein ; and the trouble now is
that the republican party do not get them.
Why, sir, they talk of intimidation !
Here are hundreds of negro men in
Louisiana who come up and say, "we
voted the democratic ticket." I have
Been it stated as high as thousands; call
it hundreds if you choose ; call it any
number you please ; they come up and
Bay "we voted the democratic ticket."
" hat does the returning board say ?
Count their votes ? Not at all ; they
say " you were intimidated to vote the
democratic tieket." What then? They
come up aucl make allidavit that they
voted the democratic ticket, and that
they voted it without intimidation.
What does the returning board ?av '!
You were intimidated to make affida
vit." And so it goes.
Why, sir, where is the end of this?
Cannot any man who has the least hon
esty and the least sagacity in the world
see that if such practices as these are
tolerated, anything like republican insti
tution and free government and a free
ballot are at an end ? You put the des
tinies bf the whole states in the hands ol
four irresponsible men called a returning
board, and then talk about a republican
form of government! You want
to invoke the whole force of the
government, its army, ita navy,
to secure to a state a republican
form of government ; and you put in the
hands of four irresponsible men, and not
of the highest character either, the right
to determine upon the phase of erovern-
ment ot that state. And yet you call
that a republican form of government !
Jur. f resident, it will not do:
will not do. My colleague said, with
great force and eloquence, that if elec
tions were to be carried in this country
by intimidation, there was end to repub
lican institutions. I agree with him ;
and I tell him, and I say to each one of
you, that it elections are to be carried by
tne use of the army of the United btates
and its intimidation, there is an end of
republican institutions. iSir, all tbe in
timidation that ever actually existed on
the part of the democratic or the white
people of the south is but a drop in the
Lucket to the danger of that intimidation
which comes from the standing army of
the United States. Anarchy in any
country at last corrects itself, for it can
not be borne ; but the use of a standing
army to control the people has been fatal
to liberty ever since a republic existed.
I agree with my colleague that intimida
tion of the voters is fatal to republican
government ; but I ask him while his
mind, heated and excited by what heba
seen and by what he has heard, is brood
ing over cases of homicide, of violence,
and the like, to think of the far greater
danger of imtimidation by the organized
body which carries the sword and the
bayonet and wielda the artillery of the
army. I ask him to think of that much
graver daDger of intimidation from him
who shall hold in his hand the purse and
the sword. I ask him to remember that
there have been Ca?sars and Cromwells
and Bonapartes in the world who have
overthrown republican institutions
but republican institutions never yet
have been overthrown by the kind of in
timidation of which he speaks.
Reminiscences of Irving.
One naturally thinks of Irving as a
young man because his writings are so
fresh, but he died in his seventy-seventh
year, and had he lived until the present
time he would have been ninety-four.
How much oLthe sorrow of old age has
he escaped! Since tbe author's death,
his publisher, (Putnam) hns gone to the
grave and also his literary editor and
biographer, Pierre M. Irving, who is
buried by his side. The Irving home
stead, " Sunnyside," still remains in the
family, though the occupants and pro
prietors board in the city during the
winter. Irving, like Webster and Gree
ley, died in harness. His great work,
the life of Washington, was jmt finished
when the increasing illness of the author
showed fatal symptoms, and in a few
months he was in his grave. The last
summer of his life, when so many were
congratulating him on his grand success
in finishing " Washington, he was in
extreme suffering. What is remarkable,
however, is the fact that he was not con
fined to his room, and even the last dav
of his life was marked by no figns of
inecial alarm. He fell dead at ten
o i clock in the evening in his bedroom
while preparing to retire for a night's
rest. It was iust such a departure as he
had desired, for the idea of becoming a
burden toothers was distressing to such
a sensitive mind. His age was precisely
that of his father, but he retained a fresh
and comparatively youne look to the
Irving was the only man who knew tlie
contents of a volume concerning which
an intense curiosity has been expressed.
The volume referred to has a strantre
history. A great but polluted genius,
writing under the verdict which society
has expressed against him, wrote the me
moirs of his own life, as an appeal which
could not be heard. It was to have the
additional powers of a voice uttered from
the grave, lor sot till its author should
be dead was it to appear before the world.
Such was the character of Byron's auto
biographic memoirs. Having finished
the work a few years before his death he
gave it to his friend, Tom Moore, who,
after the poet was in his tomb, sold it to
John Murray lor two thousand aruineas
equal to twelve thousand dollars.
Ibis was the largest sum ever paid lor
any work ef the kind. After making the
sale Moore became convinced that its
revelations endangered the character of
others to such a degree that its publica
tion would be dangerous. Indeed, when
the annunciation was made society was
thrilled with surprise, and no doubt a
tremendous influence was brought to
bear on Moore demanding suppression.
He returned tne price to Murray, and
perhaps the money was made up t. him
in a private manner. At any rate the
manuscript was burned. 1 o come to the
point, it may be said that as Irving and
Moore were intimate friends the latter
consulted the former, who read the work,
aud therefore knew all its strange revela
tions. As tbe book was suppieMtel Ir
vine never divulped those mysterious
secrets concerning which so many have
bt-en so intensely interested. It may be
added that the destruction of this manu
script was done by Mrs. Leigh, the poet's
halt sister, into whose hands it was
placed by its former owner.
There was during Irving's life a story
afloat concerning his intimacy with a
young Englishman, an invalid, who
agreed to appear after death if be should
be invoked. This story is t a certain
degree correct. The invalid referred to
w is named Hall, and he and Irving met
in Spain, whither the former had gone
for his health. Irving gave the follow
ing account of the aflair: One day they
were talking about ghosts when Hail
suddenly aaked his friend if he should
liko to receive a visit from him after
death?" Irving replied that, aa they
had always been on good terms, he would
nut be afraid to receive such a visit if it
were practicable. Hall then said he vas
serious in his idea, and added, "IwiHh
you to say you will consent." To this
Irving agreed, and Hall said : " Irving,
it is a compact, and if I can solve the
myBtery for you, I will do it." Soon
afterward the invalid expired, and Ir
ving was the only real mourner at the
fnna.nl 1 Ta WVYitA "" tl.A I m M 11 K

and while oppressed with the tender ns
int ionsof such a mournful scene be
wandered out te one of their torau-r
haunts and there recalled the compact.
In obedience to his promiae he whLr
pered an invocation, but do one p
peared, nor did Hall ever make himxelf
present to his last earthly Iriend. The
latter was wor - , Kiy tljlt "gbwgts were
not kind to him.
Benjamin Franklin mentions a similar
agreement which he made with a triend
named Osborne, when he was a young
man livinc in Philadelnhia. He Kflva in
hiaautibography. " We had seriously en
gaged that whoever died first should re
turn if possible and pay a friendly viit
to the survivor, to give him an account
ot the other world," and, he adds, "Os
borne never fulfilled his engagement."
This desire for such mysterious knowl
edge is so natural that it has been a mat
ter of discussion for aces, and DIair thus
alludes to it in his poem "The Grave'."
