The Republican candidato for

five hundred votes. The normal
Radical majority has heretofore
been live thousand, whild Hayes
carried the State in November by
four thousand. The last election
was a great surpriso.
It is said that President Hayes
received a letter from a private
soldier of the State Iou:;e garrison
pleading, for a removal of the troops
on the ground that the vermin and
filth abounding in that building
wore insupportable. Fitting ac

But one alternative is offere~d to
thmem now. They must obey tho
knock humbly at the State House
door for admittance, or blso lose
1their seats. Their positioti is ludi
crously embarrassing, with no possi

Even should they surrender and
apply for recognition fron the con

by no means certain that the law is
not also against them. The recal

The day for amassing wealth by
corrupt legislative jobs is over, and
the duration of the session will ie

will barely pay for a suit of decent

ronago will be nothing and in -,i
acting laws they will bo mere
ciphors. Why any sh1ould desiro to
cling to their oflicos, and, by being
conspicuous, to draw upon them
the gazo of scorn, with no practical
bonefits to counterbalance, is a
cause * for wondor. The part of
wisdom for those modern Cincinnati
is to return to their ploughsharee

Bo it observed, Ibis is Governor
Chmunberla ill's own dercrption of
what took place under his govern
ment. It was a government ' that
did not govern ; even. with federal
troops to back it it was ,powerless
to' pieserve order, poworless to
repros violenco, ,. pr tioct life or
plliIt crine i.4 t governmiient of
which thiu is a true picture, painted
a friendly )band, passes an irre
:versabhl setelluco of- condemnation
'tipoi iteq i. And when it is added
that tiwis condition of anarchy and
violonce, this government which did
not govern, ate up the substance of
the people by exorbitant, ruinoni
taxes, and was ia hotbed of recking
corruption; Mr. Chamberlain's pro
test seems absurd to the degree of
being an insult to the common sons(
and moral feeling of the country.
There is every reason to expect that
this hideous picture will be.rovcrsoi
under the wiso, just, enlightonet
adnministration of Governor Hamp
ton.---N. .1. Heredd.
Wendoll Phillips, Again.
The old reprobate lot off a goot
deal of his venom in a late convor,
sation with a cr(ld reporter. Ii(
said among other things:
I used only 011 of my a'rowe
against Dovens. Every Massachu
s(tts man remembers that in 1.8G
he was a candidate for governor irl
that revolt against the Ropublicar
palty which sought to lreveli
Andrew's re- logoipn -.anl Suuner's
return to the Smilate.. Hayes seem
ti have a special ,iking for men whc
like Schurz and Dovens, have done
thoir best, in 'i1iical' moments, tc
stab the Republican party.
Correspondent--What do you
think, sir, of Wib Hmilitbn?
Mr. Phillips-Iu every sentence
hothas uttered on his way to Wash
inaton I can hear the crack of the
old slav3-holdili whip. Since 1860
I have not hoard the crack of th-t
whip until Hampton sent that i; .
solet Iotte''to'Grant. . If we had
to-dt&a man i' the W;4ite House
H-ampton would never be admitted
there after suchI insolence. If I
read the signs correctly the people
have more self-rospect thian Hayes
has, and he will soon hear a wvarn
ing growl along the ground tier.
Correspondent-Why not wait
sir, and let the administration have
time to try its exporimnent?
Mr. Tllhips-~??or two reasons.
The Prosiderit'i friends havo sold1
u.s out. It is no dxperimont, i.but a
treacherous bargain, and, besides,
tho stop)s they are going to take are
very p)eriloul., and once takeni are
irrevocable. There is no doubt of
the bargain that sold us out. Thme
Republiemi 1pper very pr~oporly
held Tilden responsible for his
neplow's (Leltpu's) acts, though
Tildon never' knowv each detail. So
I hold Hamyes rEJsponsibl for his
friendsm whou they sold hin out to
tihe white Souibhi. Thmo bargain is
plain. On th. one sido the Demo
craits were to stop) filibustering and
let Hlayes bo counted in. On his
sido his~ friends agreed to withdraw
'theotbrdops; seconad; to rocogiz9
Nicholhls pnd Hampton as governora;
thir'd, to charter -tihe Southern
Pacific Railway, giving awvay mil
lions of inatiomnal acres and1( millions
of national bonds. ,(Let working
men take notico.) This -last item
won Jay. Gould and his-pocket-picco,
the Tribhune. We abalal s00 the
bargain crriied out soon. This de
lay and Commsission are. only to lot
,us down easily and acustom the
publio mnind .to tihe descenit. The
troops once withdrawvn, blood and
starvation will rule the South.
Thoro will be no Republican .State
south of tihe Potomnac. Of course
no Imroo atic governor or Logislaw
ture will ever call for the national
troops, and hence no soldier can
cross the sacred b~oundary line of a
State. Henry Wilson con feuded to
11o that our great mistake was in
lifting those territories, after the
war, inlto States. Then there will
be a "solid South"-the 01(d slave
power under a new name. The next
Congress and the next President
will be Deomeati'c unless the North
becomes a volcano. Then you wvill
see millions added to the national
debt in tihe bhapo of -pensions to
Confederato soldiers, loans to
Southern States and railwvays, pa.
mont of ha.1f the Seta di, o .
When that hell opens you will see
Hill and Lamar put off their compa
ny clothes and their disguise of
goo(' ehavior. They will appear
in tair own proper persons. You
will no t see Lamar, the actor, per
forming rhetoric over Sumner's
dead body. But you will hear
Lamar, the Southern white, shame
lossly proclaiming in excuse for that
eulogy of Sumner-"You under..
stand. I saw the carcass and used
it to hoodwink the Yankees."
ONE LIE, ONE AIM.-A wife said
to her nusband, who was scolding
her, "Howover cross you may be,
there is not a couple who live in
greater unanimity than you and I;
for we always desire the same thing
-you want to be master, and so
hurrah for ilalliptol!
