Tbe plot is simply let well enough

up all present happiness and seeks for

Sentenced to Leath. We give be
low a letter written to Clinton S.
Miller, by a man named Harvey
Thorpe, now an iuinate of Auburn
(N. Y.) StatePriaon, and who I un
der sentence of deatb for an assault
upon and tbe murder of a guard.
In 1366, eleven years ago, there
were a number of orphans brought to
this cllty from New York for the pur
pose of adoption. Among them waa
Harvey Thorpe, then thirteen years
of age. He was taken by Geo. Miller,
of Hopewell township, father of Clio-
ton S., and assumed the name of
Harvey Miller. He etaldjthere about
two years and proved to be rather un
manageable and somewhat given to
theft He ran away and went to
Cleveland, where be stole a waich
and other articles and was aent to the
State Reform School. After he bad
been there about six months the
Superintendent probably at the In
stigation of tbe boy wrote to Mr.
Miller to know if be wanted Harvey
again. He reported tbat the boy bad
been behaving well, and was anxious
to get back to the home be had left
Upon these representations Mr. Mil
ler sent money for fare and the boy
returned to him. After staying with
Mr. Miller a short time, tbe boy went
to live with Mr. Smith, a son-in-law
of Mr. Miller. He lived there altout a
year, when bla propensity for theft
again overcame blm and be stole from
tbe father of Mr. Smith about $150.00
in money and a lot of clothing, and
ran off again. No trace of him could
be found and he bad not been beard
from again until be wrote tbe letter
below. Tbe murder of tbe guard
which be refers to in hie letter was
reported In tbe papers at tbe time It
took place as a very aggravated case of
murder, and tbat Thorpe waa guilty,
there waa no question. As to
his plea of innocence, readers must
draw their own conclusion. Tbla is
the letter :
AUBURN, Oct. 15th, 1877.
Clinton & Miller :
Dear Sib : I take this pleasure to
write you a few lines to let you know
tbat I am well at present and hope
these few lines will find you tbe same.
I bave bad tbe misfortune to get in
prison. While In prison, I was pitch
ed upon by a nigger on the gallery
going to my cell. In self-defense, I
struck him one blow on the forehead.
It knocked him down. He was
pitched off tbe gallery by three other
men. I bave been tried for my life
and found guilty, and sentenced to be
bung on tbe 7th day of December
next I bave but a few more daya to
live, but I can swear with a clear con
science that I am Innocent of murder.
If I bad told my counsel of these oth
er men throwing blm off tbe gallery,
I don't think tbat I would bave bad
to suffer this dreadful doom. If I
have ever done you any wrong I want
you to forgive as yon wish to be for
given by God. Gcd knows that while
I lived with your father, I tnougbt as
much of yon and more than I did of
my own brother. Clinton, love your
mother ; do what she tells you, and
pray to God every night tbat He may
keep yon ont ef temptation. God
knows If I had a mother aa yon bave,
I would not bave been In thla trouble,
or I would not bave had to die so
young. Your mother waa all tbe
mother I ever knew. May God bless
her, will; be my dying prayer. Clin
ton, pray for me to God, tbat He will
take this bitter cup from me, but If
not may His will be done. God can
look in my heart and see that I am
Innocent of premeditated murder. I
did not intend to kill, only to make
blm get away from me, and let me
alone. Clinton, ask to forgive
me tbe wrong tbat I did bim. (rod
knows that I am heartily sorry for It.
Tell Belle to pray for me. I beg
Roeie'a forgiveness. Ask her t) for
rive me and God will forgive her sins.
O God ! why did I not stay out there
and behave myself ; It would bave
been better for me now. Ask mother
to pray tor me. I can not help call
ing her mother, for she was all the
mother tbat I ever knew. May God
bless her. Ask your father to pray
for me. I feel that God will forgive
me. Christ baa said, "whosoever will
may come." Clinton, I will send you
a keepsake, bo when I am gone you
will not forget me. I want you to
keep me In memory. Take my ad
vice, and never disobey your parents.
Do what tbey tell you, and pray to
God, and you will be bappy. I send
yon this ticket with my name on it ;
keep it In remembrance of me. No

name on it too.

WASHINGTON, Oct. 22, 1877.
A week ago to-day Congress started
off In fine style, and to all appearanc
es was going to do great things from
tbe word go; but tbe week baa slipped
by and precious little has been accomplished.
IN THE SENATE.
Tbe sober-sided Senate swore In
three nw Senators, viz : Cameron of
Pennsylvania, Armstrong of Mis
souri, and Mattbewa of Oblo, tbe last
being the bandaomest one of tbe
three ; it then spent three days lis
tening to Tburmani Conkllng, Wal

and snarling at each other over tbe

tore who claimed admiaslon, tbe end
of which was to tend tbe credentials
of all of them to the proper commit
tee ; then, exhausted over their wea
ry labors, tbe Senators adjourned from
Friday until to-day.
did scarcely as well aa tbe Senate. It
managed to admit several members,
choose its seats, and than played out
on Wednesday, taking a recess un
til Saturday, and tbua after bearing
the Journal adjourned till to-day.
Meantime Mr. Randall ran away to
Philadelphia to escape the pressure of
members who wanted to be on Com
mittees, and tbe Congressmen put in
the time meandering: about tbe aven
ues, and seeing tbe sights.
On Wednesday Mr. Hayes aent Into
the Senate a batch of nominations a
long a oue'a am, mostly tbe oamee
of persons wbi had been a pointed to
vacancies during tbe summer. The
Senate referred tbem to the appro
priate committees, which are supposed
to be holding an Inquest on tbem. A
great many persona, wbo bad been
promised places, not aeeiug tbeir
names in this lbt, drew a long? sigh,
and aUrtsd for tbe White fiou-ie to
ascertain the reason wby tbey bad

have patience and all would come out
right "Yes, yes," grumbled theaoz
ioua chape, "tbat Is very eonaoiiug-,
but bow in the deuce are we to pay

THE CIVIL SERVICE ORDER.
It Is hinted In political circles to-day
that it is poesible there may be aome
sort of a modification of lbs order
prohibiting officials from participat
ing In politics, without destroying Its

tbe sole purpose of the order wax to
reach those politicians wbo have held
offices for political euds only, and
wbo have brought dls-teneioij an I dis
credit into tbe party, and have united
in efforts to intimidate) e inventions.
Mr. Hayes does not wish tbe Republi
can party to be injured by any misin
terpretation of tbla order, and may
modify it somewhat so tbat there can
be oo mistake ever It in ti.e future.
It might bave been better If tbe mod
ification bad been made some time
prior to tbe Oblo election.

Its Effects Upon the Republican Party
and the Country.
WASHINGTON, Oct. 21.
In accordance with an invitation
from Mr. Foster, a number of R pub
licans met on Friday night at tbe
residence of Secretary Snerman, to
consider the best course for Republi
cans to adopt in cae tne Democrats
should on Monday introduce a resolu
tion approving the P.-eeideut's policy.
While this was the ,al Luslnees be
fore the meeting, discussion soon
turned upon tbe various features cr
tbe policy. There were present Sec
retary Sherman, Messrs. Hale and
r rye, of Maine: General Butler and
Crspo, or Massachusetts ; Blair, or
New Hampshire ; Hendee, of Ver
mont: Martin Townsend. or New
Yora ; Russell Krrltt or Pennsyl
vania ; Foster, Garfield. J. D. Ctx
and Danforth, of Ohio ; Conger, of
iuiomgan ; tsurcoard and Cannon, of
Illinois; Dunne! I, of Minnesota;
Price, of Iowa : Page, or California.
and i horn burgh, of Tennessee.
.o decision was reached In regard
to action In case of such Democratic
resolution as was expected. If the
Democrats should present it io tbe
shape of indorsement ot their Ohio
platform, where tbe collcv is claimed
as Democratic doctrine, all present
agreed tbat the way would tbea be
open for Republicans to vote solidly
against It Only Uen. Cox and Mr.
Crapo announced tnelr purpose to
vote for It, in case It should prove a
simple and full indorsement of the
uuite a number were in favor of
treating it aa Democratic buncombe,
and or having an understanding tbat
all Republicans were to sit silent
There was another proposition, tbat
aa Maine woold be entitled to call for
resolutions, after tbe States had been
called for bills, Mr. Hale or Mr. Fry
should obtain tbe floor, and nse up
the whole day before allowing the
call to pass from tbeir State.
Tbe meeting was called without the
knowledge of Secretary Sherman, and
the idea of those originating it was
explained to be to give tbe President,
thruugb one of his Cabinet officers, a
chance to hear directly iu regard to
tbe position or prominent men io tbe
The Interchange of views, aft-r the
question of dealing with a Demo
cratic resolution waa laid aside, waa
geosr al and very free. Only two in
dorsed both the Southern policy and
civil service. There were a few who
indorsed the Southern policy, bat
only one or two- were willing to vote
unqualified approval of it, though
tbey felt constrained to accept It as a
fact Those wbo opposed It stated In
strong terms tbeir desire to preserve
tbe unity of tbe party, and to act
with tbe President as far as possible,
but they were still unwilling to yield
tbeir convictions or vote in opposi
tion to tbem.
It waa agreed to ask the Republi
cans from tbe various States to bold
a conference ou the question ef the
best methods of treating a Democrat
le resolution in regard to the Presi
Secretary Sherman bad very II Ilia
to say, and said nothing at all in ref
erence to tbe Southern policy of the
President He urged upon those pres
ent the importance of Republican
members calling upon the President
and talking freely with him ; and
thought it woold te a mistake for
them te absent themselves habitually
ou account of tbeir dissatisfaction.
In answer to very general expres
sions of dissatisfaction with the civil
service order and its operations. Sec
retary Sherman Insisted tbat tbe or
der bad been misinterpreted or mis
understood, and In tbis be waa warm
ly aecocded by Messrs. Garfield aud
Foster, tbey each taking tbe position
tbat the President's intent waa not to
prevent office holders from taking a
properly active part in ths campaign
after conventions bad put a ticket iu
Uen, Cox, of Ohio, defended the
President and indicated bis cordial
support of bis entire policy, and
argued tbat tbe President bad simply
carried Into practical effect the princi
ples enunciated in the Republlcau
platform and in bis letter of accept
ance. At this point be was In'errupted by
Mr. Frye, of Maine, who aaaed Geo.
Cox to point to tbat plank in tbe plat
form or to tbat clause in tbo letter of
acceptance which foreshadowed tn
appointment of an ex-Confederate
and life-long Democrat to a Cabinet
Mr. Crapo, of Mass., at once Indi
cated hU support of tbe President
both In bla Southern policy and iu
bia civil service order.
Mr. Frye spoke In very strongs
terms In condemnation of tbe Presi
dent's Southern policy and also of bis
civil tervlce reform.
Mr. Hale directed bis remarks chief
ly to tbe subject before the meeting,
namely tbe treatment of tbe anticipa
ted Democratic resolution.
Neither Mr. Garfield not Mr. Fos
ter bad much to say in reference to
tbe Southern polic, and devoted
themselves chiefly to the discussion
of avoiding a split In tbe party rpou
any vote wbicb tbe Democrats m.gbt
Martin Townsend, of New York,
said hs bad felt very kindly toward
the President, and bad desired to sup
port blm cordially, but tbat be bad
become impressed by report! which
be bad read from time to time tbat
tbe President regarded members of
Congress as a set of scamps, and not
exactly reputable people, and as be
was considered a tolerably booest and
respectable man at home, he did not
care to Intrude bimself at tbe White
House, where be could not be certain
of the standing wbicb be received.
Gen. Butler spoke witb great ear
nestness In regard to the Importance
to the country of upholding and con
tinuing the Republican party as the
hope of tbe country, and bis remarks
in regard to civil aervlce reform were
particularly pointed, and directed
chiefly to Gen. Cox, and were filled
from beginning to end witb sneers at
this portion of tbe policy.
To tbat part or Mr. Cox'8 speech In
wbicb he declared that ths President
was in full sympathy witb the party,
and only desired its good, Mr. Dan
forth, of Ohio, asked wbat evidence
there waa tbat the President sincerely
desired the go.d of tbe psrty, in view
of bis selection of a Cabinet, in which
tbere were at least three members
who did not care a straw wbat be
came of the Republican party allu
sions to Evarts, Schuiz, and Key.
Mr. Cox, In bis reply to this, de
clared It to be unfair to sesame that
these gentlemen were not In accord
with tbe party, and that tbey did not
desire Its success.
Mr. Thornburgh, of Tennessee, said
tbat the Republican of that State
and of tbe Sooth were utterly dis
heartened ; that there was no longer
a Republican organization In the
South ; tbat they had no representa
tive in the Cabinet, and that tbey
were obliged when seeking anything
in connection with tbe Puetnmce De
partment to go over the bead of tbat
department to the President himself,
and that Hontbern Republicans would
not confer directly witb tbe Post
At tbis point, Mr. Blair, of New
Hampshire, inquired of Mr. Thorn
burgh, whether, when they had
visited the President, they bad re
ceived any satisfaction from him, and
whether they bad been able to attain
what they wanted.
Mr. Thorn burgh said that they
bad always failed to obtain satisfac
tion. Mr. Cannon, of Illinois, reported
tbat tbere waa a very general feeling
among the Republicans of his State
that tbe President had not properly
eared for thoe to whom he owed bis
election, and tbat tbere was very
great dissatisfaction in regard to bis
treatment or Southern Republicans.
Mr. Dannel stated tbat lbs Repub
licans or bis Stats were not cordial to
ward the President
Mr. Confer expressed the opinion
tbat in Michigan tbe Republican feel
ing wis tbat the policy or the Presi
dent toward the Soutn must be ac
cepted as a matter or fast, and as
something which it was now Impos
sible to remedy ; and that in regard
to tbe elvll service order at least mns
tenthsof the Michigan Republicans
dissented totally from It.
Ltst nlgbt most of the Massachu
setts delegation met and agreed not to
vote in ease) the matter took the
shape of a foil Indorsement from the
lt.e Illinois delegation held a meet
ing last night at tbe rooms of Senator
Oglesby. There was mnch r.ittrrr.as
toward the frsstdent manifested oy

general opinion expressed was that it
