may lie culleil the most conseni.itive Dcino
cracy. but which also hus peculiar relation
with the monieil men of Xew Eniflaml ami
the Kat. iisen the following lanifua'e in its
. issue of the 4th. "The proposition to in
votiifute the eki toml frauds in Florida U
eminently pro-wr. The threat of the Re-
iuvestigtttion to oilier states is neither here
nor there. The one mtit to he considered
is this, that ollieers of elections in Florida
have confessed to the criminal alteration of
returns, which crime caused the declaration
of Hayes' election. Certainly such a confes
sion in so e,nive a matter needs to he con
firmed or contradicted. It is imMissildu to
sec how a Congress having any regard for
the lilt-'ities of the people or the security of
our institutions could refuse to take cog
nizance of such a matter and trace out its
foundation. It is a case in which partisan
ship is not to 1k considered, hut the honor
of the nation." U.taUsj of its character,

Eastern Democrats are a unit for investiga

have licen revived to till so far as they can
the vacuum left by the. Milisideiice of the
Floriihconfessjon msiues. The. latest ad
vices from our Southern .border, may he
briefly summed up as follows: Gen. Me.
Howell has advisfd the War Department
that 'Mexicans and Indians from Sonora
lately raiding in Arizona were pursued totlc
border by his troojis and were there warn
ed by the Mexican uutliorities that they
would be treated as invaders if they cross
ed into Mexican territory. McDowell has
asked instructions and they have been sent
him to the ctl'ect that thes,; raids must be
suppressed, nud citing tbe onlem given (ten.
Onl n year ago which apply to the whole
Mexican frontier. These substantially com
mand Ord to pursue tin; raiders ijto .Mexi
can territory if .necessary to recapture their
plunder and punish, by dispersion or other
wise, the iiggivssius. Matters aii' compli
cated by threatened incursions from our
side by I.erdo adherents, and McDowell has
been instructed tu be vigilant ti prevent
any violation of our neutrality liws. Thy
reported action of the Mexican nithorities
if inspired by Diaz renders our relations

THE TAItlKK nil.E.
The House listened to Mr. Pegan for an
hour on regulation of inter-State conimerce
t'wlay, nnd then took ii the tarilT bill. The
nutiuu t limit debate to two hours was
defeated by a large majority, und in course
of the discussion Mr. Kelly, of Pennsyl
vania, intimuteil that his colleague, Sir.
O'Xcil, who was tn iiitf to choke off debute,
was a blackguard. Mr. Tucker, of Vir
ginia, made a very able speech in favor of
a tariff for revenue only, and win warmly
congratulated by Democratic niemlM-rs.
The joint resolution introduced by Mr.
Morgan in the Semite is a preliminary
scheme, for a railroad across the lmrder to
the City of Mexico, for which supporters
are being enlisted among Congressmen.
There is considerable interest in this scheme,
which promises to grow in strength. A
large subsidy will 1m; asked for this inter
Washington. May 9. Mr. Schleicher, of
Texas, has received from a responsible citi
of Corpus Christi the following letter, dated
April 25, PJ7sJ, in relation to the recent
outrages by Mexicans in that State :
Ere this you have heard of the terrible
outrages and murders committed by Mexi
cans in Indian garb, in Webb, Dtr.n! and
surrotindiugcounties. Now, us you know
me to be just to all, and that I have lived
in the comities of San Patricie, Live Oak
and Nueces for thirty years, and have been
through nil of the trouble of the frontier,
you know that whnt I will say is so. To
commence, I have never seen such whole
sale slaughter. They took little Uiys, from
seven to twelve vears old, ami two men
on horseback would hold, them tip by their
liamis while a third would take out thoir
entrails. The men they wouM slim it and
then take out tlrir entrails. This was
svm by women who wen bidden to bide
the Ixxlies in the bush, and wc found the
Ixxlies us it was told us, in the manner
stated. The killed amount to nlsmt twenty-five
men and fifteen children, from
even to toiirtcen years old. This raid was
made to get horses for the Mexican army,
and I am told by good authority that all the
raiders receive is the money they can get,
with other valuables, and '$1 in money a
head for all horses they biing safe over the
Rio Grande. I think they must have
crossed over the river with alxmt "iOO or OiMJ
head of saddle horses. There were iilxu.it
forty of the raiders altogether, alsmt twenty-six
in the party that did most of the kill
ing, ubout ten in the one thut wasU'low San
Diego, und eight or ten in the one that
crossed iilxnit Eagle Pass. When I say five
or six hundred head of horses I mean the
nunilier that were taken by the party that
did the most i f the killing." The party that
crossed the Rio Grande lielow Rio Grande
City, had alauit one hundred and fifty head
of horses. I do not know how many horses
they crossed alxmt Eagle Pass. Now, how
is it that the United States, as great a gov
ernment us it is, will allow such work to go
on.' It looks like such people should be
Mowed out of existence. They should not
be allowed to live. We have the power to
stop that raiding, and why not do it ut
once ? I sav demand these men to be turn-
send tnxips over and get them and take the
whole country. I know ymi an.- doing all
you can to protect us, aud i hope you may
be able to do so. I write this in haste.
The Congressional Democratic Commit
tee was in session several hours this after
noon on the subject of the investigation of
Haves' title. It was decided to have a reso
lution for an investigation by the Judiciary
Committee offered in the House to-morrow.
It was stated at this meeting that one of
the offenses to be developed was, that Den
nis, of Florida, would swear that he went
to Hayes and told him all the details of the
frauds in Alachua county to which
he was a party, and that Hayes
then wrote a, "letter to Sherm'an,
which litis ' been w idely published,

A Tl'HKisH VIEW.
According to the Turkish view the Rus
sians ought to withdraw beyond Adriano
ple so as to occupy the line fixed as the
Eastern limit of Bulgaria. The Turks, how
ever, propose to surrender the places one af
ter another so as to give all the Muscovites
time to perform their part of the engage
ment. Should this method be followed
Shumla will probably be the first, Varna
second and Uatoum last surrendered.
The Turkish commission at Phillipopolis

Russian interests, makes a statement that
the insurrection was never serious ami
will terminate without cmrc'ion us soon as
the insurgents are convinced that they are
not included in New Bulgaria.

IlEnux, May 8. The Emperor yesterday

Minister,, da the latter to present his crc
dciiiiali. DANIEL DREW AGAIN TO THE FORK.
Uncle Daniel, though now 79 years of
njje, has by no mesni jiormanontly sulisided
financially. So far from this being the
case, lie has made a couple of hundred
thousand dollars speculating in the coal
stocks, and confidently talks of getting on
his feet again. In ante-war times, when Mr.
Prew controlled the Erie Railway, endowed1
colleges and founded theological seminu;
ries, Mr. Drew was worth from ten b
twelve million dollars. Wa 1 str.'ct ruined
him, as it has alxmt- evcrylmdy els
who ventured" into it as a specu
lator. Wabash finally carried him under,
and that, too, right after ho had made n
round milliiui of dollars in manipulating
the same sbxk. Not satisfied, however,
with this success, he ventured too far with
his "puts" and "calls" upon Wabash,' and
in tlie end not only lost the million he haf
"scmipcd" from others, but was ''scooped"
out of alxmt every thing he had besides.
Then the old gentleman, after ineffectually
attempting to "lay down" upon his con
