Even way off on the border we are re
joicing OTer the victories achieved by the Re
publicans this month, and regard them as the
forerunners of that more grand triumph that
is to come when, on the 7th of November, the
Democratic serpent will be finally crashed
and Republicanism established beyond a per.
adTenture. People who live In the Nortb
cannot und erstand the anxiety with which we
Southern Republicans look forward to the
election. We know that, should the Demo
crats triumph, thoce of us on the border
WOULD BE SAFER ACROSS THE BIO GRANDE,
in revolutionary Mexico, than in Texas. This
Is a terrible feeling for one like me, who for
years battled to preserve the Union and give
freedom to all its people; bat it Is true, and
the greater shame to the American people
that it is' so. The men who worked and

elected, will be driven ont by the men whom

THEY ARE A BAD LOT
and oar Government does not properly pro

the country by smuggling, or the people of
this section from their thieving expeditions.
A great deal oi both might be stopped by a
few more consuls at different points on the
river. One is specially needed at Santa Cruz
Point, opposite Bagdad, between this and the
mouth of the river. A large amout of legiti
mate business is done there, and it is also one
of the principal places for the rendezvous of
Cortina's smugglers and cattle thieves. We
have only a consular agent at the place undir
the consul at Mainmorts. No expense need
attend the change, as the fees would be ample
compensation for the consul, who should be a
well-posted and resolute man. There are
ceveral other places on Jhe river above Mats
moras where good men should be statloaed,
either as consuls or agents. If these things
were done a large amount of revenue would
be saved to the Government, and the people
of the border would be more effectually pro
tected. Cannot the Administration be induced
to sec the point! Allow me to give Tent In
your columns for one good "hurrah for Hayes
and Wheeler!" It is safer and more pleasant to
do it that way than here; for I do not then run
the risk of being knocked down or called "a

Political Situation in the Eastern Fart of the
Corrapocdence of the National Republican.
WlLMIXGTOS, N. C, Nov. 1, 1S7S.
The itenes in the recent amendments to the
coueUtution of North Carolina wax warmer
and warmer. Tct amidst all of our political
differences we have reasons to congratulate
ourselves over the fact that we hear of little
or no mob spirit on either side. The Demo
crats are "up and doing," whilst the Republi
cans are making a thorough canvass in all the
districts, and it is very probable that the "Old
7J orth State" will give a Republican malorlty
or at least 15,000 for Settle and Smith. There
sever was so many accessions to the Republi
can ranks from the average class of native
whites in the west. The cast will brin; out its
entire colored vote. The white and colored Re
publicans are thoroughly aroused, and yet the
machinery of the government beinsr in the
hands of the Democrat.', It Is but fair to pre
sume that nothing but the oOcUl count will
-.decide the result. The Democrats claim that
thev will elect their whole ticket bv an over-
wbelmin majority. The respective speakers
are uinamg lime in some oi me utsincts ; in
t others the Democrats are quite bitter and re
fuse to measure arms with their opponents on
the stamp. This is taken as an evidence that
' they are on the defensive.
a Judge Settle is making a vigorous canvass,
ind will continue up to the day of the election.
He Is received with popular favor everywhere,
and makes heavy Dions against Vance on bis
record in the rebellion. Toe latter receives it
with good humor, and tries to turn it off with
a joke. He appeals to the prejudices of the
Ignorant, poor whiles In regard to the civil
'rlghts bill, and declares that he will -poll Ave
uousana votes among toe colored people an
ar&ertlon which neither be nor his Democratic
(friends believe to be true. While many of the
.Btcrces make their bread by the sweat of their
brow at the anvil and in the fields, they would
readily take their discharge rather than enter
Into any contract to vote away their rights
with the Democratic party. The ex rebel Gov
ernor does his best to mislead the Ignorant
-negroes and "poor whites" in the rural dls
.tricts, but, as a. class, the former having made
tneir ngnta nnaer tne reconstruction acts a
study, are better Informed on public matters
f than the latter, who relv entirely on their
Democratic leaders. The old Whig element Is

fif them of their doubts. I was on a steamer

that they (the Democrats) were drtermlnea'
to carry South Carolina this fall cost what it

ibe State of about S0,000, but that they were
toing to overcome that in spite of Grant and
everybody; that the enforcement act had been
declared unconstltutloual, and now they wete

Order any troop there In the face of that de

House that would withhold the necessary ap

Heavy Export of Silver for China.

during this time has ranged above the London

Personal Liability of the Trustees of Savings
Banks in Wasbingten-To What Creditors
Does it Apply, and is it Several at to Each!
The case of Charles II. Horner against
George C. Henning and others, an appeal
from the Supreme Court of this District, was
yesterday heard before the Supreme Court of
the Ualtcd States, involving the question
whether under the act of 1870, as amended,
the trustees of savings banks in this District
become personally liable to depositors, as
well as to other creditors, whether the
amount of the liabilities of such backs exceed
the amount of the capital stock; and aUo ths
question whether this liability extends to
each creditor who may choose to sue severally
or is confined to the creditors collectively. A
demurrer maintaining that the liability did
cot apply to depositors, and was to all the
enditors instead of to each, was sustained
that Congress should have intended to exclude
below, and it Is here urged that it Is impossible
depositors, who from tbe nature of the busi
ness transacted by such banks are most likely
to represent tbe principal Indebtedness, ana
whote claims have the special merit ot a debt
for money deposited in trust merely for safe
keeping and without interest; and also that
as there is no joint Interest, no priority of
contract, as between these creditors, which
requires or even allows a joint action at law
or proceeding in equity, to recover from the
trustees a statutory penalty eqial to the
amount dne each one of them, tbe right of
action given is a sole, separate and individual

A Curious Cats of Bigamy in Francs.
A curious case of bigamy is exercising the
minds of men (and women) In the Faubourg
St. Denis. The facts are these: Some twelve
years ago a M. Albert P set up as a vendor
of lemonade at Sens, and soon did a thriving
business, with which he might have found it
wise to remain content. M. Albert, however,
thought that If a pretty woman presided at
his counter he might obtain even more cus
tomers than he had already. With this view
he married a Mademoiselle Bertha M, who
bsd all the necessary qualifications. The plan
succeeded admirably; Indeed, more than ad
mirably, as M. Albert soon began to think.
One bright morning, accordingly, after a
siormy interview wrn niswue,ne aisappeared,
not forgetting to take the cash-box with him.
Next day, on the bants of tbe Yonne, a fish
erman found a man's clothes and an empty
bottle, together with a letter in which one
"Albert P " declared that he was weary of
life. The clothes were Identified as those
worn by Mme. Bertha's husband, and hi dis
consolate wife lamented him as lost. Afcer
waiting ten long years she married a worthy
tradesman of the Faubourg St. Denis, and it
was with mingled feelings that she saw her
first husband enter the shop a few days since.
By way of simplifying matters the lady
shrieked. Number one did likewise, anl was
soon engaged in a fight, more Gallic, with
number two. While they were plucking out
each other's hair by handfols, a posse of
guardians of the peace made their appearance,
and marched them both off to the police sta
tion. Explanations followed, when the ex
consort atowed that he had shammed suicide.
French justice has so far contented Itself with
drawing up a report on the case.

Eastern Policy of the Government.
Paris, Nov. 3. In the Chamber of Deputies
to-day the Duko De Cazes, Mlnlsterol Foreign
Affaire, made a statement in regard to the
policy of the French Government in the East.
He dwelt principally on the country's need of
peace, and concluded as follows: 'If, contrary
to the expectations of the Government, com
plications should arise, we shall never ask you
to compromise the honor and safety of France
In a struggle which does not Involve ber essen

AMNESTY TO COUMCNISTS.
London, Nov. 4. The Stanfard't Paris dis
patch says: M. Gatlneau's bill for the cessa
tion of the prosecutions against tbe Commu
nists was introduced in the Chamber of Depu
ties yesterday by M. Llsbonne. After a de
bate, during which M. Dufaure opposed and
M. Gambetta supported tbe measure, the
House, by an overwhelming majority, decided'
to proceed to debate on the clauses of the
bill. ?ht Standard' correspondent remarks
that this defeat of M. Dufaure ought to show
tbe Government tbe necessity of doing some
thing in the matter.
Tho Tima' Paris letter says on June 23
President MacMahon, yielding to the Cabi
net's desire to quiet agitation on this subject,
published a letter in the Journal 0Uk, or
dering that no more prosecutions be Instituted,
except In contumaclum or upon the Inlatlve
of the Cabinet. This was meant to be a com
pensation to the extreme Loft for the rejec
tion of a general amnesty. Gatlnau's propo
sition would permit all self-exiled Communist
leaders to return to France in safety.
The Cabinet has determined not to accept
any larger measure of amnesty than that con
ceded in the President's letter, leaving Indi
vidual cases subject to Executive clemency.
If the Cabinet now accepts the passage of the
Gatlneau motion by the lower House, even
though certain of Its defeat in the Senate, it
joins In an aggressive and distrustful vote
against President MacMahon. If the measure
is adopted by a combination of the Left and
Right the Cabinet's majority is destroyed,
ad ('ther way the Cabinet must reslzn.
The Paris dispatch to the Dally Xext says
vesterday'a proceedings In the Chamber of
Deputies are equivalent to the adoption of the
Gatlneau bill hi principle. The debate was
adjourned until to-morrow. Tbe Chamber
will probably pass the bill In an amended
shape, against the wishes of the minority, and
the Senate will reject It. This will probably
be the commencement ot a serious conflict.

Tobl, In the course of his wanderings, com

of a poor woman, who at once kindly begged
blm to enter. She set before him the only food
she had a little goat's milk broke a piece of
bread Into it, and said : "May Fohl bless it,
that we may both have enough."
She then prepared for him a couch or straw,
and when he fell asleep, perceiving that he had
no shirt, she sat up all nlzbt, and made him
one out of some linen she had' made by her
own hard labor. In the morning she brought
It to him, begging that he would not despise
her poor gift. After breakfast eheaccompi

her linen to see bow much was left, and she
went on measuring, and did not come to toe

yard were full of linen; in short, she did not
know what to do with her wealth. Her rich,
neighbor, seeing this, was sorely vexed, and
resolved that such gool fortune should not
escape her again.
After tome months the traveler came once
more to the village; she went to meet him,
pressed him to go to her house, treated him
with the best food she had, and in the morn
ing brought him a shirt of fine linen, which
she had made some time before ; but all sight
she kept a candle burning in ber room, that
the stranger, if he awoke, might suppose she
was making his shirt. After breakfast she
accompanied him out of the village, and when
tbey parted he said : "May the first work you
undertake last till evening 1" ,
She went her way borne, thinking the
whole time of ber linen, and anticipating Its

Your gossiping and welcome letter of the

-many others, while I was engaged with tbe
boys directing political documents to the
voters. We worked at it all daylong and
until 10 o'clock last night. I have no time to
be lonely, as you suppose me to be. The
political excitement is up to white heat. I
you don't know what tbaV Is, ask a black
smith; he will tell you. The excitement Is
greater than I have known it since 1SC0. The
Republicans are enthusiastic and hopeful.
The Democrats are mtdly desperate, and stick
at nothing however dishonorable. There has
never been anything like It. They feel that It
islheirlsit chance to regain their long-lost
power, and they fight like ravenous beasts for
I don't wonder you arc alarmed. The dis
tress at Washington would be dreadful, but
that would scarce be a drop in tbe bucketful
compared with the misery that would be
brought upon the whole country If the aecos-r
tloslsts should, by fraudulent and treasonable
means, obtain the reins of Government.
Should such a misfortune befall tbe Republic,
God help the people. With New York on the
side of right all will be safe. Feeling and
knowing this, the people have aroused and will
Nothing but fraud on' a gigantic scale can

Views of a Hard-Honey Democrat.
Our old Democratic friend, John S. Benson,
who is constrained to go for Hayes and
Wheeler on the money Issue involved, while
on a recent visit to New York, addressed some
sound logic on that subject to a meeting of
Liberals assembled In the Bowery, and also
made a good point against, Tilden by contrast
ing the characters of the two candidates in
the light of the testimony of their neighbors.
His postulate was that men are to be judged,
as to their worth, by what is said of them at
home by those who know them best. And
from this standpoint he drew the conclusion
that Tilden was everyway unfit for offices of
public trust. In Cincinnati every one, Demo
crat and Republican alike, speaks highly'of
Hsyes as a citizen and statesman. All his
professional brethren speak highly of him,
and declare his ability and integrity. But In
New York even the Democracy speak ill of
Tilden; and Tammany Hall, that body of
Democrats which knows Urn most intimately,
has recorded its estimate of him in its St.
Louis crusade against his candidacy, where It
declared him Luwortby and Ineligible.
In New York1 his professional brethren unite
In chsracterizlnghlm as a class practitioner, a,
rallrosdconyeyancer and Jobtjet only ,wholly un
known in thegeneral practice, and particularly
In the Federal cotmj).wh6re questions of pub-'
lie law and of rational Interest are-alscassed;
and determined. If, then, the people of the
country take any heed of the evidence before
tbem, tbey have but one way to vote, consider
ing only the question of personal character in
volved; and when, superadded to this, the
grave doubt of his honesty of purpose lu pre
tending to be in favor of hard money is pre
sented, Mr. Benson thinks there is no other,
course Sot good cltlzens,Jncludlng hard-money,
Democrats, but to vote for Hayes.
Veteran Negro Kisstrel Gone. j
Mr, Isaac Ray, better known by his stags
name of ."Sam Johison," died, on .Wednesday
last, at River View, Ky., in the seventy-second
year of his age. He was the father of negro
minstrelsy, and Introduced Jim Crow Rice and
other .famous, burnt-cork artists to the public,
and was himself a performer of great' talent.J
He was the manager of variety theatres in
New York and other cities, and traveled ex-!
tenilvely with negro minstrel troupes in
former years. At.one time, he was connected
with Dan Rice in the show business, but for
many years prior to his death had abandoned
the stage and devoted himself to other pur
suits. Mr. Ray was acquainted in all parts
of tbe United States, and knew the history of
every minstrel or note that ever appeared on
the American boards. He brought out Dan
Bryant and hU brother when -"they were small
boys, bringing tbem upon the stage In a bag,
and turning them out before the footlights as
colored cuplds. A more warm-hearted man
than "Sam Johnson" never lived. He was a
true friend, a kind neighbor and an active and
energetic business man. ;

Cheney said recently to a 'reporter of the

of our success. A week ago I was not so san
guine; it did not look quite so bright. But
now we can see our way clear. It takes some
effort to get our people up to the fighting
pitch. We had an exhaustive campaign lasfr
year, and tbe tension on the public mind waa
great. Then there was a reaction, and it re
quired vigorous work to so stretch the strings
again that we could confidently count on the
old-time enthusiasm. We have the advan.
tage of the temperance vote, three fourths of
which will be with us. So that on the whole
our majority may be as large as that of the
last Btate election." The Hon. E. II. Rollins
is confident the State will be carried by the
Republicans, and that Hayes will be elected.

Hammer and Jack Trigg went over the second
hurdle together. Bight upon them came Risk

Derby went over the next stretch several
lengths behind the other horses, and It was
apparent that there was no hope that he would
win the heat. Paladin and Hammer leaped

A Washington dispatch Inth9 NewVork
Tribune of yesterday saysr'The significant
fact has become known, to-day.that upon the
appearance of Governor Tilden' letter on
Southern claims a number of Democrats field
a party conference here, and came to the con
clusion that the effect of the letter on the
South would be badand that It would at least
be well to keep Mr. Hendricks from commend
ing it. To prevent this it was resolved to s.-nd
a messenger to him urging him not to write a
letter or take any present position on the mat
ter. This messenger started, but before' he
reached Indianapolis1 .Mr. Hendricks had been
spoken to and had tally committed himself to
Governor Tllden's letter.
A postal card (one of the ,nnmeroos cam
paign devices In use in (he lively fight now be
ing made by General Butler) reached here In
the mall yesterday, on' which is printed:
"Loyal Ltuny. O.-Eora,"1' deHrer the good
g-ople of the Seventh District from E; R.
oar, professional, office-seeker; mock civil
service reformer: pseudo hard-money advo
cate; blatant bolter; residuary legatee, "and
traitor to Charles Sumner's civil rights bill;
political demagogue and scold; caucus packer
and ballot collector in his own Interest; the
notorious pot-house, politician-self-nominated
candidate as Judge of the U. S. Supreme
Court (rejected, thank the Lord I) from E.
R.Hoar and his political priests; fromE.R.
Hoar, Democratic voter, thus affording aid
and comfort to dlsunlonist."
In 1S74 the Democratic majority in Indiana
was 17,252; Independent vote, 18,530; Repub
lican minority, 35,7S2. At the election in
October of this year Williams' majority was
5,494; Independent vote, 6,000: Republican
mlnoritT, 11,494; Republican gain, 24,238.
In addition to this the Republicans have re-
falned four Congressmen, revolutionized the "
egIslature,and.Tirtnally secured, con'rol of
the State government for the next two year.
Reverse these figures, and they will show that
Williams did not receive a majority over, all.
The greenback, vote in October was almost
solidly from the Republican party, the Demo
crats at the last moment going back to that
party, leaving only Republicans to. throw
away their votes. It is not too much to ex
pect that the Republican greenb&ckers, hav
ing been once told out, will avoid being caught
a second time, and that they, will vote for
Hayes and Wheeler at the coming- election.
This change alone would carry the State for
the Republicans. But there are other reasons
why Indiana will go Republican. The State
patronage, which was so liberally used by the
Democrats in October, Is no longer available
to them. They can only follow the example
of the devil on the high mountain promise
what is not theirs to give. . This will causa
falling off among the breid-and-buUtr bri
gade. Again, there are many Intelligent
voters who did not fear the Confederates in
Indiana, but who will not dare trust the
National Administration in their hands.
These are all new elements of strength,ln the
Republican party jtpd consequent weakness of
the Democrats. With these figures In -view,
It seem hardly possible that Tilden and Hen
dricks can receive the vote of that State 04
