POLITIC8-"HOW WILL THEOER
MANS VOTE ?"-GRANT AND
AVAHI1INOTON, D. C, Oct. 25, 1872.
Mr. Editor; So absorbing 1 tho tnterct
felt In the pending political canvas by all
person connected with tho government here,
that It ha been almost Impoulblo to havo
any business transacted that required the
personal attention of cither a member ol the
cabinet or the head of aburcau. Thli it
especially true ol the treasury department.
Ha devoted tho last two month almost ex
clusively to political meeting away from
Washington, and person having Important
hii-lncn with tho treasury department have
had cither to lpose all It cost In time and ex
pense to come to Washington and go home
again, or remain here at greater expense
until tho November election arc over.
What personal Interest Houtwcll ha In the
result of the canva, to exctic him for
this ncglectofollieialdutles, is not very clear,
For no matter who is elected president
A NEW HKCRKTARY OF TIIK TREASURY
Will havu to be appointed next March. Mr.
Greeley would hardly retain Houtwcll, and
If Wilon should be elected vice-president
Massachusetts could not be represented In
It I suggested that Houtwcll Is working
for the mission to France, a AVahburn U
coming home to take Fish' place as secre
tary of state, but I have good authority for
saying that the personal relations ol Grant
and Houtwcll arc not of such a nature a to
belle e that Grant would nominate- Houtwell
to till Washburn's place at Pari".
No matter what U said In the administra
tion paper to the contrary, I kuow that the
friends or Gen. Grant here do not reel cer
tain of his re-election.
THE VOTE OF TIIK HERMANN
In Cincinnati was the most disturbing ele
ment in the October elections. And from

Aside from the millions upon million that

Four years ago, there wa not a mile or con

than In any other city in the country.

There Is a strong feeling against the contem

A REAL GHOST STORY.
MANIFESTATIONS A HOUSE
BOMBARDED CROCKER i'
wero dashed from the table and broken
right beforo tho eyes of tho astonished and
frightened family. Other articles were
thrown about the room, and bricks and
missiles thrown through tho windows.
The jo proceedings had been kept up to
tho latest accounts furnished by our in
formant. Tho peoplo in the vicinity, at
tracted by these strange reports, gathered
around tho bouse and were astonished and
bewildered by what they saw. Tho re
ports of those mysterious proceedings
corno through reliable parties who, al
though they express no opinion, they give
no explanation. We learn that tho rail
road agent at No. 0, who doubted theso re
ports, visited tho scene, and was convinced
that the family had no agency in the mat
ter, and could not account in any manner
for these annoying disturbances.
In tho Macon 'Telegraph' of yesterday,
wo And tho following, which tallies with
tho information we havo received, and we
therefore publish it:
Reports In regard to this strango affair
being current, some gcnlloincn who came
up on the train, determined to stop end tea
for th?mclves. They asked Mr. burroncy
if ho had any ghosts about him. Ho told
them if they would go over to the house
they might discover something. They
wont over and propounded the shiiio ques
tion to Miss Surrency. She told thorn
they would bo satliQed if they would re
main a few minutes.
Sha then showed thorn n pllo of frag
ment! of china which the esiured them
wero tho rcmuins of vaies ond other orna
mental articles which had been thrown
down und broken, without any visible
agency being engaged in the work of de
struction. While they were talking to tho young
lady, a lumbering nolso was heard in the
adjoining room. They inquired what the
noiio was. Sho raid (mother brick had
been thrown into tho room, and told them
further, that h Urpe number of them had
been thrown in during tho day.
They alt then approached the room into
which'lhe brick had fallen, and as they
neared tho door somothing whizzed by
their cars and fell with n crash behind
them. Thov turned and saw tho frag
ments of a neavy bar-room glass, which
had been thrown through the door with
such forco that tho heavy bottom of the
glass penetrated so far into tho floor that
it required some forco to wrench it out.
At another timo a heavy fall was heard
iri the room, and an examination revealed
that an ordinary smoothing iron had been
removed from a trunk in another part of
tho room and thrown into the middle of
Mr. Surrency went to bed about three
o'clock yesterday morning, but bricks fell
around nlm so tMck nnd fast that sleep
was impossible. Out of two full sets of
crockery in tho house but two pieces re
Theso occurrences tako place about
every five minutes, day and night. The
family havo not been able to sleep during
the time, and are beginning to look
greatly worn out.
Tbu gentlemen who went to see eame
away perfectly mystified and possibly a
littlu startled. These bricks are thrown
into the houso when the windows are all
closed. They could not come from
ubovo, because the house is ceiled over
head." The 'Telegraph' evidently docs not be
lievo in these kind of "spirits," as will be
seen by the following doubt which closes
"Evidently some human agency Is at tho
foundation of all this; but who or by
whom, is entirely in the dark. It is prob
able, however, that investigation will be
undo which will uncover tho whole mat
ter, and show how simple a thing may
cuuso deep trouble to a whole family, and
completely mystify a whole community.
"Several gentlemen from Mt-cor. went
down last night, and probably when thoy
return to-morrow the public will be per
mitted to know nil about it."

Our information concerning it is derived

On Thursday evoning last, as Mr. A. 1.
Surrency, who keeps a storo at No. 0, on
tho Macon and Brunswick road, was sit
ting down to tea with his family, a large
stick of wood was thrown through the
closed window, striking upon the floor
and jarring the whole house. The
family were of course croatlv startled, and
it was evident that the log could scarcely
have boen thrown by a man, a the win

around tho promises, but resulted in no
discovery. The family returned to the
