IiOMioN, June 7. The following facts
and n: uors show the state of public feeling
in Germany. The editor and manager of a
newspaper at (bilauchau has been arrested
for the publication of .Socialistic writings
A committee has been funned in Berlin'
to purchase hotwe No. is, Cuter der Linden,
and to convert it into a place of religious
Numerous manufacturers have resolved
to dicharge nil their workmen attending
Socialistic meetings. Between twenty and
thirty persons have been arrested ill
various towns for expressing regret ut the
failure of Nobling to kill the emperor. At
Brunswick and Runner men have Wen ar
rested charged with telling beforehand of
NoblingV attempt. At Willielmshaven
men have been arrested charged with pre
dicting the day beforehand that the Koenig
Wilhelm would sink the Grosser Kurfurst.
Such, says a Berlin correspondent, are the
statements now going the rounds of the
S'ine newspaper nnnoiinces that Nobel
ing's condition has improved, and that there
is some prospect of his recovery, but the
s'ory of n surgical operation is false nnd so
also' seems to lie the circumstantial ac
count of his admissions in the presence of
his mother and the police about his accom
plices and the drawing of lots to determine
who should undertake the assassination of
tlie emperor. The National Gazette says
when N'obeling's mother reached the
prison he was already unconscious and has
been o ever since. Persons who knew
Niibeling intimately at the lm'l said he
had often tits of insanity. The Kieth
Gazette says, while at Dresden Noebling
was suddenly seized with the idea he had
I'.niml a solution of the eastern question
and stin ted for London, declaring hisdeter
mination to submit a plan to the British
Government. A London telegrah says we
have authority Mstate that the rumors til mat
Nobcliiiir's connection with Socialist ron
spiratois in England and about the part
taken by the English police in communi
cating alleged facts to German authorities
are entirely baseless. There is some ev
idence that Nobling was tin extreme Social
Democrat, but the Keith Gazette and En
glish press lmvc evidence that he had made
arrangements, which preclude, the pre
sumption of any premeditated plan to shoot
the Kmporer. Scotland Yard detectives
haven letter written by Nobling two days
before his attempt against the life of the
Emperor which show s no Mich purpose was
present in his iniii'l. The view taken bv
the police of Berlin, lis well us London, is
that Nobling. though in perfect possession
of his reasoning faculties, stitV red himself
to become a creature of passion and diabol
ical impulse. They discredit the story of
the drawing of lots, Another signilicimt
fact is there were a dozen empty beer glass,
es on Nobliiig's table when tie1 crowd broke
in his room, which the servant said he had
never seell tilel'e In-fore.

lin speaks oi' tit .- t'eeliiij .is v.-ty protV.ita'lly
listurbt-d. No one ventures to apeak freely
in cxtenuiitinn of Nobling' crime; but in
private men say the country is ripe for u
republic. France, now under Republican
rule, is prosperous, rich and happy. Ger
many, under the empire, Is poor, depressed
and wretched. Worse still, the alliance be
tween the czur nml the emperor is danger
ous. Germany may tind herself drugged
into a war with whitl slg' has no concern.

that in view of u second attempt on the life

permit tliciu to rest content with having
merely introduced a former abortive unti

London, June 7.--A special from Berlin
states that tl e dissolution of the Reichstag
is as good as accomplished, the assent of
the Federal Council being certain. The
Liberals are in a state of consternation.
Tlie government w ill, pending the new elec

JAMES E. ANDERSON DEFENDED.
A CONSERVATIVE ItKIM'III.K'AN SI PPOHTS ITS
From the Philadelphia North American t'nloii.
Secretary Sherman docs not think he
wrote the letter tit Weber and Anderson.
The rest of the country will generally think
that he did.
Make no mistake in weighing the testi
mony of James E. Anderson. No man oc
cupying n position of honor and trust ever
risk's making himself the target for obloquy
und vituperation for the pleasure of lying,
His story is not a pleasant one, hut rest as
sured it is true.
Mr. Anderson's testimony is confirmation
of a prevalent belief that piuit.v was a thing
unknow n in Louisiana politics. We do
not excuse any of the wrongs to which he
was a J'iiity;'but their existence and his
acquiescence are scarcely to be wiuiderod
ut when we read of the 'atmosphere of evil
by which lie was surrounded.

SASSINATION. A Bund of Cut-Throats Discovered
Whose Avowed Objeet was Murder.
New Orleans, June 7. A Democrats
special from Bayou Hard says: On Sunday
ni'ht lust, as Dr. Wm. B. Archer was re
turning to his home from MajoF Barton's,
about .10 o'clock p. in., he was fired on by
sit negro men who were lying in the bush
es waiting for him. Five of the negroes
und double barrelled guns aud oneamus
ot. Dr. Archer was on horseback and
i .ling oil top of a levee. The assas
' were concealed behind two very large
cottonwood trees standing within a few
feet of the levee, and ull of tlie negroes
fired as the Doctor was passing the trees,
his clothes being riddled with bullet holes
uud Ins was thrown mini his wise, tmt
fortunately not much injured. The assassins
took, to their, Reels, running In tlitferent di
rections, but it was ascertained who tic
parties were who had attempted the foul
act, and on Tuesday morning a large num-
ier ot citizens colle ted at Iiaccourci,
where the act was committed. A jury of
twelve of our best citizens, most of them
old gray headed men was chosen, who after
a lengthy and thorough examination found
the prisoners, five in number, one having

earth for miles around. The first explorer
detruded the shaft five minutes after the
explosion, and others followed. Ten men

suffered much from after damp. Eight
other men are alive, and have taken refuge
in a working of the mine. Two hundred
and thirty-two are dead. The explor

WHAT CACSED ALL THE TROUBLE.
From the llultlnoro (In.i-ttu.
Mr. James M. Anderson, late of Feliciana
Parish, Louisiana, and Supervisor by trade,
may be a rascal and all that. He probably
is. An honest mnn could hardly have done
what he did in the matter of forged returns.
But Mr. Anderson's intimate relations with
Secretary Sherman, Senator Matthews and
Judge Harlan, and his cori-espcndence with
these representatives of Mr. Hayes, demon
si rates beyond question that his services
were recognized. The failure to reward
the knave has caused all the trouble. In
view of John Sherman's long und and
peculiar career it is really surprising that
he should have overlooked the importance
of providing for his aecomplises. There is
nothing goes so far towards insuring the
success of crime us for criminals to stand
together and share alike.
