Governor Tilden's Past and Future.
In the midst of the most harass
ing complicat'ions surrounding the
final determination of the Electoral
vote'wo havoever had an abiding
conviction that Gov. Tilden would
be the next President. He appears
seldom before the public, but is con
stantly at work in private. His
past career has been remarkably
successful, His first exploit was
the demolition of the Tammany
i'ng. In 1874, haring practically no
political record save as a party
manager, he was nominated for
governor against Dix who had pro
viously been elected by a majority
of fifty-two thousand votes and
whose gnbernatoria record was
withont a flaw. Despite the almost
universial belief that he w(ould be
dofoated, he see-irned an election by
fifty-throo thousand majority. Im.
mnedite~ly upon01 a1.Ssum1ing his9 Oflico
be waged a hitter warfare agaivst
the Canal Ring, fald in the faco 'of
the prediction that tho Ring would
be too poworful for him, lie smashed
it to atois. Last, June, notwith..
standing tho violent opposition of
Taunmany and the Westeni and
Southern Democrats, he secured an
almost unaninous nomination for
President at St. Louis. During the
csmipaign, Indiana was made the
pivotal State. Tilden made the
fight and won it. The contest was
changed to the three States of New
York, New Jersey and Connecticut.
He carried them. On the 7th of
November he was elected by a clear
majority. The Radicals counted
him out in Florida and Louisana
and declared that th' face of tho
returns should be accepted as final.
On the sixth of December when the
Electoral colleges met to ballot,
Uncle Sain captured a vote in
Oregon and thus rejoiced in the
possession of 185 votes attested by
the broad seals of the States. The
Radicals gnashed their teeth, bnt
Tilden smiled a seraphic smile and
merely pointed to Gov. Grover's
signature and cabalistic scroll.
Then the Radicals declared that Mr.
Ferry had tho right to count the
votes and declare the veenit, while
the House had only to sit quietly
b~y and see itself cheated. It wais
also announced that Cronin's Demo
cratic vote would be thrown by
Ferry into the waste basket. Til
den said nothing; but he sot the
leaven to work, and the result is the
p~lan just prlop)osed. Tildena has
never yet failed. And wvith right on
his side, lie is likely to pull through
the mire safely and land at last in
the White House.
The United States Senate.
The terms of twenty-seven United
States Senators expliro on the 4th
of March ; and the indications are
that the next Senate will be very
close, with a small Republican ma
jority. Elections to fill vacancies
have~already beon held in a number
of the States, and in others the
Legislatures are now balloting.
Among the new Senators are L. Q.
ti. Lamar, of Mississippi, Garland of
Arkansas. Coke of Texas, and Bailey
of Tenlnesseo, Democrats ; and
Blain) or Maine, Windshom of Minne..
sotal, Ferr~iy of M ichaiganm, and G. F.
IHonr of Abismohusetts , Ihepublicans.

In Illinois Senator Logan is lighting
for a re-lction, but seven Indoe
ponfdents hold the balance of powver
in the Legislature, and the Demow
crats have nomninated ox-Governor
Palmer, a Liberal Republican, with
the hop1o of capturing their vote.
In the ballots thus far held Logan
lacks three of a majority, but the
Liberals have not yet signified any
intention of supporting Palmer, who
runs a few votes behind Logan.
President Graut recently expressed
a desire that Logan should be re
elected, a fact which should secure
his defeat. The Legislature of Ne
braska is still balloting, but the Re
publicans are largely in the ma
Louisiana elects twoSenators, one
to sueceed West, whose term has
expired, and the other to fill the
vacaancy caused by the rejection of
Pinchbek. The Packard Legisla
ture lhas elected Kellogg for the
long term, an4 will doubtless elect
Wo'rmoth for the short, provided a
quorum be obtained before the dis
solution~ of the Pa ecard' government,
iof i at present there is little
probability. The Nicholl's Logisla
turo has made no selection yet and
appears to be waiting to secure a
quorum of whose logality there can
be no qnestion. A contest will en
sue in the United States Senato as
to the admission of the aspirants
ifrorn Louisiana as well as from South
Carolina, and it is thought that
should all throo Democrats be seat
ed the result will be a tic.
Now Jersey elects a Senator to
succeed Frelinghuysen, Relpublican.
The Democrats have a majority of
one on joint ballot, but the Ropub.
licans are making an effort to oust a
Democratic Assemblyman. This
attempt, however, is not expected to
succeed ; and the Democrats will
here gain one Senator.
The two New Senators froin the
recently admitted State of Colorado
are both Republicans. Had Tilden
carried Colorado, the Demnocratst
would, aft',r the 4th of March, have
been in possession of both branches
of Congress. Booth of California
and two or three other Republicitins
are conservative in politiesi; and arte
expected, with the aid of the strong
Democrat i miority, to check any
atteimpt at partisan legislation.

is not a matter of very surprh~ise that
their efforts were eventual 'y crowned1
with suceosS, and that they were
able to frame a report to Congress
to which were attached the signa
tures of all the members of both
committees, with one notablo ex
ception, that exception being Sona.
tor Morton. Accompanying the
report, which was made on the 18th
instant, is a bill which is recom
mended to Congress for adoption,
and the provisions of which are
substantially as follows : No
dctoral vote from a State sending
up only one set of returns can he
rejected except by the afirnnative
action of both houses ; in case two
sets of returns are presented from a
single State, objection to either can
be made in writing, and such objec
tion, together with the reasons there
for, and all papers, depositions, and
the returns themselves, are referred
for determination to a tripartit(
Commission, composed of five Rep
renntatrvna. en ASe.t .1 r ,a u
Suprno Cour t J'udges, the House
and ?mnate respectively electing by
a viva Voce vote their members of
the commission, and the four Su
promo Court Judges longest in
service of selechng the fifth Judge
fhvmn amongst their associates.. This
board, compoued of those who make
the laws and those who interpret
them, and withal a very respectable
tribunal, is to determine which of
the disputed votes shall be counted,
and Congress shall be bound by its
dceision. If the conclusion is ar
rived at that neither candidate has
received a imijori 1.y Of the electoral
votes, then resort is had to the con

It's main features are excellent.
It has the great merit of not decid

therefore aecopt it without any

An affecting incident occurred at
the Academy of Music lately. AmNon",
the audience was a wealthy family,
one of the members of which has
for years been in delicato health and

been the custom of the family to
take their afflicted dlaughter with
them to the theatre, as sho seemed
to enjoy tile excitement and action,
although sho conl not hear a sound.
It was observed that she seemed
very much amused it the com'icali
ties of Mr. Sol Smith Russell, and
enjoyed the changes of his facial
expression as much as any of the
audience. When Signor Tmgliapietra
came on to sing it was noticed that
a curious light cameo into her eyes,
and stretching out hor arms to her
mother she spelled on her fingers,
with the greatest excitement, the
words, "Mamma, I hear." The next
piece wias nll orchestral arrn.genent

proceeded the tears 1lowed down the
poor child's cheeks, and her excite
ment beeame so great that it was
deemed pr'udent to leave the
theatre. On reaching home the
exhaustion produced b~y the etvents
of the evening was such that the
family physician wvas summoned.
As she lay on hier couch she reached
for her slate and wrote, "Mother, I
think Hleaveni must be0 music." The

request, Mr. Ruissel was sent for,
