Mrs. Ex-Senator Christiancy has filed
LcrlinswcT to the complaint of lier lius
baoJ, tlie ex-senator. In it slie represents
the latter as a domestic pugilist of the
worst kiud, and shoeing remarkable activ
ity, for one of his age, m coming to the
cratch. If the cx-senator and present
minister to Peru has a proper regard for
the decency which pertaing to his diplo
matic position, he will ask, not only for a
HUBpenuion of public opinion, but also a
suspension from duty during his trial.
The feeliug in congress is very lavorublc
to the bill which provides a pension for all
of those who have been employed in the
civil service of the country for fifty years
continuously. At first thought it would
seem as if there could be very few who
could claim this pension, but investigation
shows that the number is quite large. There
are several country postmasters who held
on to their offices for over a half century,
and in the different departments at Wash-
ington there are clerks who entered the gov
ernment service when they were very young,
and who have given to the civil service full
fifty years ot work. They have saved no
: thing and a pension in their old age would
10 appreciated by them.

should have been an important session in
frivilous debates over rules. Nearly three
months' time has been spent in a querillous

but what he has worked royaly, but I mean

As I have intimated, congress wants to
adjourn badly, but at present has not found
sufficient excuse for a concurrent vote,
as tho Chicago convention will undoubted
ly nominate some person who will be dis
tasteful to the Democrats, they will un
doubtedly after the convention, desire to
prolong the session for partisan purposes,
while the Republicans, it the Democrats do
as I have indicated will allow no adjourn
ment until sometime after the Cincinnati
convention, as it is just possible that the
Democrats will nominate some one who
cannot bo supported by Republicans. The
early adjournment idea hos been fostered
by two highly respectable "dark horses,"
Garfield and Randa.ll, both of whom have
evinced considerable solicitude for the lib
erties of the people, in the shape-of protec
tive tariff laws, and have thus far only been
defeated by a combination of congressmen
who are interested in appropriations for
public civil buildings, nnd who were antag
onized by the appropriation committee,
which latter committee arrogates to itself
the full powers ot congress.

EROADHEAD GIVES REASONS FOR HIS
FALTH IN IT.
Col. James O. Broadhead, of Missouri, a
gentleman of national reputation, is at Wil
Jard's hotel in this city, and last evening
was approached by the Post with an inquiry
as to what he thought ot the movement re
cently inaugurated in favor of William R.
Morrison as a presidential candidate.
"I think it a very good one. There has
been an effort to concentrate upon Mr. Til
den, but there is a growing feeling among
Democrats that lie is not the strongest can
didate that could be named. Whatever
may be his opinion, or that of his friends,
about his ability to carry New York, or
whatever may be the fact in the case, the
people have become satisfied that he cannot
do it, aud that has what has weakened Lim.
He has undoubtedly the? most positive
strength, because his forces are better or
ganized. Leaving out the question of his
ability to carry New York, it is a well set
tled fact the dissatisfied Republicans who
will not vote for Grant, while they would
not vote for Mr. Tilden would vote for al
most any other Democrat. That in the
sentiment of those with whom I have con
versed. So far as the German Republicans
are concerned, they are as much opposed to
Blaine as to Grant. They look upon him
as a mere machine politician and will op
pose him. I take it that this anti-Grant
movement in the Republican party means
something, and should be considered an
element in tne contest, a tiling to be taken
advantage ot by the Democrats, and to be
considered in the selection of a candidate
If Mr. Tilden is not nominated, 1 do not
think it would bo prudent to nominate nnv
other man from the same state, for the rea
son that it would be a disparagement of
Mr. Tilden at home and lead to ill-feeling
that might weaken the party in New York.
I wou'd certainly lessen the enthusiasm
and energy of the party, and we shall need
every element of strength. I consider this
to be a death struggle between the two
parties, and the one that is defeated will be
shivered to fragments. If the Republicans
win, it means centralization, an abridge
ment of the independence of the states and
a change to that extent of the form of l'ov-
ernment established by our fathers."
"Mr. 1 ildeu out of the way, who are left
in t.'i0 field?"
"Well, Thuvman, Morrison, Bayard,
Hancock and Hendricks, all good men,
who have all been before the country, ex
cept Morrison, for the presidency."
"It is rather an advantage not to have
been too long before the country as a presi
dential candidate, is it not?"
"Well, yes, 1 think the man who has the
least to answer for generally makes the
best candidate. I am satisfied that the
man to nominate this time is a Union sol
dier with a'Ood civil record, especially if
the Republicans nomiuate Grunt. It
would shut off these objections to Demo
crats on war grounds, and hush the cry of
sectionalism, which is the main stock in
trade of the Republican party, who seek
always to array one part ot the country
against the other. It is a pity that it is so,
but being so it must be taken into account
in the selection of a candidate."
"Morrison, then, it would seem among
the candidates named, is the one best tltteil
in your opinion, for tho nomination?"
"Yes, for the reasons stated, and others,
he is the best man we could run. He whs
a soldier of tho Mexic.in war, a bravo
Union soldier, has filled important posi
tions of public trust, lias been speaker of
the house of representatives of his native
state, twelvfc years a member of congress, a
part of the time chairman of tho commit'
tee on ways and means, nnd iu every posi'
tion lias displayed high qualities ot states
ruKQship. He has a clean record on nil
question of public policy that are likely to
uc uiaeusscu in me piosiuentiai contest, auu
above all he is n man of courage and wil
one who is not afraid to do right, nnd
that is the kind of a man wo want ut this
"How would ho stand in tho east?"
"From his views on public questions
there is no reason why ho should not be as
strong in tho cast as any man that could bo
nominated; and in the west he would be
stronuer than any eastern man whom we
"What do you think of tho prospect of
his nomiationf '
"It has not been long 6iuce his name has
been mentioned, but he seems to have
grown in strength rapidly. He now fills
quite as large u space in tho public eye us

Illinois do you think Morrison could carry

Buffalo, June 1. His royal highness
Prince Leopold and her royal highness iTin

Mrs. Langham, Hon. Mrs. Pelly, Capt. Col

and Hon. Augustus York, equerry, were al60
members of the royal party. When the
special train from Toronto arrived at
Hamilton a great crowd had gath
ered at the depot to pay their re
spects to their queen's children.
The princess stopped over one train nt St.
Catherines, to visit the general marine hos
pital, she being greatly interested in chari
table matters. She did not reach the tails
until 4 o'clock, and went at once to her ho
tel. In the evening the purty visited Pros
pect park, on the American side, to witness
the working of the electric light, and while
there made extensive purchases of souve
nirs, which they carried about in their
hands and arms. The cataract itself was,
of course, greatly enjoyed, and the prince
was quite delighted with the magnificence
of the scencrv as was his sister Louise
when she saw it for the first time, some
eighteen months ago. The distinguished
visitors will remain over to-morrow and
Thursday, leaving on the evening of Thurs
day for the west. A few days will be spent
at Milwaukee aud Chicago, and the return
made to Ottawa by the 12th. The party is

ison is somewhat unfair toward Lt-.;. te
cause, whatever his sLor.cvminss mii- hve

he has received generous recognition iru
critics, whose opinions, if worth litre, tre
at least, finger marks; and his biograpr.icii
history is inu-resting. clear and in:ruct;-.e.
Yet Lewes' Cr.it wife ran away from L:m,
und it would not be strange it' his literary
wife, whose women in her novels, even
when tiiey arj teiidous, have a cit
deul of fitoh -nd bixd and p;ioa
about them, should run away :"ri,ru
him, too, in a literary way. George Eiiot's
women are women in whose veins tlie blood
is as warm as Burgundy wine. They aro
plump and blooming. She gave Daniel
Deronda to the sweet little Huinial rather
than to the half-way GwendoJ.n. No old

years could have written about the teli-taie
