tin- general wish inav have Im-ch niuonr
nienl-rs of tlie Di-iniKTatic ptirty a month
ago, there is now umUcstionalily a desire
t'nriin inve-tigtition into the affairs connect
ed with the late presidential election in the
States of Florida and Louisiana. Two
tilings stand in the way. First, the convic
tion of a large iiuuiIht of Democrats, c-ipec
ially in the Smth. that any interference
with the existing Mat.' of thing would Is
unfair after once having agreed to the settle
ment liy an electoral coiumivion ; and. w

in the courts. If there i tiny had faith nt
all it is in denying to the defeated candi
date the specific means of relief which were
in general terms promised. If, upon due
inquiry '' 'he proper courts it is found
that Mr. Hayes is not properly president,
there i no hardship in compelling him to
drop the office. On the contrary fTfc hard
ship is in keeping it from the rightful
The other ground on which investigation
and reference to the courts itre opxod liy
some, is that they prefer Hayes, who is in,
tu Tilden, who is out. It is worthy of
note that this, like the other olijection,
admits the prol nihility almost the certainty
of a change if the case goes ' Itcforc even
ti Radical ImhIv like the Supreme Court. If
there were not tl fatal weakness in the title
of Mr. Have, investigation would not take
anything from him which is Ids, and there
fore would do him no harm, nor would it
elevate t,i office. Mr. Tilden who, for the
sake of the argument, we may admit to In
a lase man. But the character of tin in
dividual doe not affect his rights of pro
pertyat least until after judicial pro
ceedings, and those lire what the friends of
Mr. Tilden desire. There does not seem,
however, to he that moral or intellectual
superiority over Mr. Tilden on the part of
Mr. Hayes which would excuse even a
sentimental preference for the hitter, Mr.
Tilden is a very idde and honoralde num. of
good experience in puldic life, and in the
campaign of STI5 and in the later event
acted a dignilled and patriotic part. Of
Mr. Have if is not too much to say that
his withdrawal of troop from the South
appear to have been forced upon him, if it
was not the result of a "liargain." mid that
his "civil service reform" is a delusion even
if he intended to carry it out honestly, ( n
these two points, more than any other, he
and his friends have challenged the admira
tion and support of the people.

The President ha given Packard an of
fice at last. Packard has bored him early
and late for several months, and Mr. Hayes
has wisely determined to get him out of the
country if possible and where he will not
be heard from again during the term of thr.
present administration. He nominated Pack
ard to-day as Consul to Liverpool, a fat office
of $(J.U0t a year, now filled by ex-Governor
Fairchild, of Wisconsin, who is nominnted
Consul to Paris in place of Torls-rt. Pack
ard regards himself a deserving a much

will probably accept it, as lie is not likely
to obtain anything U-tter. The Senate will

London, May 6, While the general ik.I1-
tieal situation is unchanged and the course
of negotiations la tween St. Petersburg and
London continues uneventful there is no
lack of im m irttint incidents at Constantino
ple. A corrcsiMiiident av another palace
revolution is threatened. The conspirators
for the overthrow of the Sultan Alxlul Hu
mid and the accession of Murad or some-
ImmIv else actually fixed on it day last week
for the attempt, but fear of Russian inter
ference caused a change ot their plans, and
the conspirators say they must wait until
the Russians go. It Is difficult to nay what
would lie the attitude of the Russians in
case of revolution, but there is great dan
ger that Russian and English troops would
come into collision in such an event. Eng
lish influence is now Micved to 1m upK-r-niosf
iu the counsels of the Sultan, who be'
tween Layard, the British AnibaMador,
pulling one way and the Russians thcotltV,'
has anything but a pleasant time. A Qiu-
jonty ot the Pashas and all ot
the late Ministers are against the
Sultan, and the people are sullen
and discontented. There have ls-en violent
speeches against the tax on bread, which is
now at famine prices. The Pashas are all
ready to fly at each other s throats. Osman
Pasha, for instance, is cursed oa all sides liy
the other Pashas as ns a fool and by some
as a traitor. Without either English or
Russian support the Sultan could not stay
on the throne nuothcr day. The sultan
MkIuI Hamid succeeded Murad, his elder
brother, who was deposed August 81, 1S7(5.
The same correspondent says Sadyk Pasha
is certain not to remain duet ot the Minis
try long, though it is difficult to see what
English influence would gain by his over
throw, if it is true, as all corrcsiiondents at
the Turkish capital agree, that the present
Cabinet manifests British tendencies even
more frankly than their predecessors; such
friendlv manifestations may be blind, how
ever. TIlKTlltKS DKTKltMIXKD.
Another correspondent say; I have just
heard the Porte has sent a note to the
powers maintaining that it cannot evacuate
Shiunla, Varna and Batouiu until the Rus
sians retire, and According to the treaty of
San Stefano, the surrender of Adrianoplc.
The Russians, of course, maintain a coun
ter proposition that they cannot withdraw
until the Turks evacuate the fortresses.

London, May (5. A special from Peru
says: Advices from Adrianoplc and Phil
lipMiolis of the 2d inst. rejsirt continued
righting hImmiI Hoskot, in which district
twenty-one Mohammedan villageshave been
destroyed, the Russians laying the blame on
Bulgarians and Bulgarians laying it on the
Russians. There have lieen many arrests at
Adrianoplc among Bulgarians accused of
complicity in the destruction of Turkish
villages. The insurgents have not yet de
scended into the plain further west than
Hoskoi. but the Pomaks (Bulgarians
who have been converted to Is
lamism) of Drithama Valley co-operate
with the main Ixsly of theinsurgents, furn
ishing a contingent and holding the moun
tain passes. To counteract this a Russian
force is marching from Sophia. The in
surgents have taken Rahovia and other
places. Thirty-eight wounded Russians
have been brought to PhiilipHipoIis. The
main lrndy of insurgents is estimated at-'IO,-000,
exclusive of scattered bunds. Informa
tion reaches us that many Greeks have de
serted and there is communication between
the leaders and insurgent luind of Thcssaly.
which seems credible when it is remember
ed that (ireek insurrection was anti-Slav
rather than anti-Turk. There seems also
reason to expect that a strong Albanian con
tingent will join the insurrection.

EDISON. THE INVENTOR.
Thomas Alva Edison was born in Milan,
Erie county, Ohio, on Feb. 11, 1S47, and
is, therefore, only thirty-one years of age.
Yet he has taken out 157 patents for inven
tions of his own, and has filed 77 caveats
for other patents. His grandfather came
from Holland, and settled near Newark,
N. J., marrying an Ogden. one of the New
York branch of that name. The Ogden
were of English descent. When Thomas
was eight years old his parents removed to
Port Huron, Michigan, and he entered on it
a life of self-support wry soon as a news
loy. This he followed for some years.
Alxmt the age of thirteen, just More th'i
lieginning of the war, lie obtained a con
tract for the exclusive sale of newspaper
on the Grand Trunk Railway of Canada.
His energy soon placed him at
the--head of bis business. He con
tinued in it for several years long
er, employing other Isiys and
building up a large trade. Concurrently
with his newspaper sales, he bought asinall
outfit of tyye, which he carried on the
train, and with which lie printed the Grind
Trunk Herald, a little weekly paper. He
was, says Prof. ' Edward F. Johnson, to
whom we an? indebted for these facts,
editor, manager, typo, devil and printer
all within himself. Ho did his printing
on a hand-press and ran up the paper to
4"0 subscribers. This was during the
war. Young Edison finally abandoned
the printing business, and got together a
traveling chemical laboratory, consisting of
numerous lsittles and packages of chemi
cals. These he carried with him on the
train, and experimented with them during
leisure hour, until the Hsmtaneous com
bustion of phosphorus set fire to the train
one day, when he was obliged to give up
his "tricks." But not content, Edison
learned the telegraph business, becanio
a proficient operator, and rapidly rose
to the highest position in the craft.
While in Cincinnati, in 1807, when lie w is
twenty, he conceived tlc idea of sending
two messages over one wire at once. He
perfected the idea in Boston. He now la
gan h series of experiments for miscellane
ous invention, working all the night at his
trade and experimenting all day, and tint
result was several inventions which have
been of great value to mankind. Mr. John
son says; "It is unquestionably a fact that
Mr. Ellison finds his brain more active
in the small hours of the night than at any
other time; and the writer of this sketch
has personal knowledge of the fact that
nearly all of Ids most valuable and brilliat t
conception have lieen make just More
the break of day, when a general discuss
ion of their merits would be had with hi
assistants, and drawings made for his work
men to use the next day.
ORIGIN OF LYNCH LAW.
James Lynch was Mayor of Gal w ay, Ire
land in !47:r. He made several voyage
to Spain, and on one occasion brought home
with him the son of a respct table Spanisli
merchant, named Come. Walter Lynch,
the only son of the Mayor of Galway, wa
engaged to a beautiful young lady of good
family and foiirtune. Preparatory to tin?
nuptials the Mayor gave a splendid enter
tainment, at which young Lynch fancied hi
intended bride vi-wed his Spanish friend
w ith tooo much regard. He accused his lat
loved Agnes of unfaithfulness to him, and
she, irritat.'d at his injustice, disdained tt
deny the charge, and they parted in anger.
On the following night, while Walter Lynch
was slow ly passing the residenceof Agnes, be
observed young Coinez to leave the hous' ,
he having been invited by her father tu
spend that evening with him. In the mad
ness of jealousy, Lynch rushed on his un
suspecting friend, who ffed to a solitary
quarter of the town near the shore. Lynch
maintained the pursuit till bis victim had
nearly reached the water's edge, when he
overtook him, and stabbed him to the heart,
and threw the body into the sea, which cast
it back on the shore, where it was found,
and recognized the following morning. The
wretched murderer surrendered himself,
mid bis father being chief magistrate
of the town, entrusted with the
power of life and death, found
himself obliged to condemn his son to
death. On the night preceding Ids cxiru
tion, his mother went to the heads of her
family and prevailed on them to attempt it
rescue. The morning of the execution an
immense crowd had assembled who cried
loudly for mercy to the culprit. The may
or exhorted them to submit tothelaws;but,
finding them determined on a rescue, he. by
a desperate victory, overcame parental feel
ings, and rinding that his effort to accom
plish the ends of justice in the usual place,
mid by the usual hands were fruitless, he
became executioner himsMf, and from tin?
windows of his own house, launched hi
unfortunate son into eternity.
