Now York Politics.
The Comptrollership of New York
City has passed from the hands of
Boss Kelly. Ou Saturday Mavor
Cooper sent Iin to thle board of alder
men the name of Allan Campbell, as
successor to Kelly, and the appolut
ment was confirmed by a vote of thl'
toeii to eight. The anti-Tainnany and
Republican aldermen joined in the
conirmation. This office, held by
Kelly for several years, is lucrative i
itself and its patronage runs up in the
hundred thousands. Enemies of Kelly
assert that this is the lever by which
he has so long controlled Tammany
Hall. Kelly's downfill may be at
tributed to the etibrts of the prose, led
by the Now York Herald. For mever
al weeks that paper and the Kelly
organs have been engaged in a desper
ate warfare, and the ferald, having
the longest ple, has knocked dowi
the persimmon. No one forgets that
it was through Kelly's defection last
Keclly mnade a secret contract with the
Rlepublicanas. and sold onut Hlancock.
Whether true or false, the charge
brought dlowni upon Kelly all the
phials of Democratic wrath from
Maine to thle io G~rande. The [Inde

thte paper that if a string were tied
tightly around the root of a mule's tal
it would, int cases of colic, give the
animal instant relief. He tried thte
remedy on otte of his own mules, and
the doctors say that the portion of the
tatil thus isolated was soon swelled up
bigger than the mule. The Texas man
savs the mule tutrned htis head and saw
his monstrous. tail and got alarmed
and~ began~ to kick. The first kick
dr'ove t he mule's tail away out behind,
but thte tail immediately swuntg back
and kntocked tl.e mnule forward a little
--the tail was too heavy. That made
the mu tle mal~der'n ever' antd he kicked
like fury. That only gave the tail
more momentum, and on its return it
knocked the mule about a rod. The
mule looked ar'ounid anid didn't see
atnybody and kicked again. The tail
was thetre as calm and regular as a
pendulum and it came back like a
steamboat running a race. That time
it lifted the 'mule over the barnyard
fence. But the mule on its feet atnd
struck out agabn--gamne as ever. The
tail fairly lautghed as It caught the mtile
on its haunches and drove the mule
down the lane a mile and a half at
every whack. It looked like dlestruc
tion to the nmule as mute and tail dis
appeared n the distancee. Bitt, after
three or four hmrs, a retuirning cloutd
of dust was 50em and soon the mute
emerged therefom kicking as briskly
as ever-bitt tin tall wvas totally usedl
tup antd gonte. -Yot being able t'o offer
anty nmore reebtatnce, of course the
mule kicked hinself back to the start
lng point. Thu is not a campaignt lie.
