Thoughts ?? ihc Tragedy.
It may be said that the horrible
deed at Washington being committed
by a half crazy ollice seeker should
have no other than au individual sig
nilicutiou. But it appears, to us, that
borne profitable lessons may be drawn
from a contemplation of the eriiue.
However much we may endeavor to
circumscribe its influence, it will be
taken and commented upon abroad
as a result of our political system.
And are we sure that it is not? All
individual action and individual oplii
ion is generated and shaped by the
fstirrouiuliug atmosphere of thought
ami feeling in the same way that the
life and growth of every plant is de
pendent upon climatic action. The
I violent spirit of faction is running
riot and corrupting every thing, ami
the "spoils system*' is forcing honest
men out of politics.
"sTlie-crazy spirit of faction," as the
Tribune styles it, which is fostered by
leading politicians of both parties,
and which is now illustrated in the
Ulizcrableflghtat Albany- is as respop
sible for the tragic a Hair enacted un
der the shadow of the White House
as the demented dreaming) of the
miserable wretch who conceived and
executed it. The love of o'liee,
which seems to be nothing more than
the love of money and notoriety, born
of the infamous "spoils system." is
running the nation mad. OliSee is

A CaiHlitl Con ft SBloii.
About the time of the Louisiana
fraud by the Electoral Commission
Senator RoscoeCoukling had a long
talk with the Hon. Lewis Lawrence,
of Utieo, who gives, according to the
New York Sun, the following account
of what took place:
"One night I was with him in his
room silently smoking while Conk
ling walked up and down liken rag
ing lion. At last he broke out: 'Law
rence, I can't keep company with this
riff-raff any longer. They are rot ton
with corruption, tmd, after having
taken everything else, they are
bound topical the Presidency. Sher
man reeks with plunder. Wheeler
is a virtuous log-roller. Stanley
Matthews would sell his soul for
ofllce. As for Hayes, he is simply a
pious sneak, ready to give money to
be President, and to drop on his
knees in tears if caught at it. 1 have
a great mind to get up in the Senate
and denounce the whole thing to
morrow, and call on honest Hcpubli
cans to give the election to Tilden,
lowborn you, as well as I, kuow it
belongs.' I told him it would drive
him into the Democratic party! and
he said: 'Let it drive; there are more
gentlemen and fewer hogs than wiiii
us.' These were just his words."
The above is a candidly confessed
judgment, by the lending stalwart of i
I he country, of the rest of the Re
publican crew. But i is not the view
of individuals that is so important
as t lu; acknowledgment by one who
knows, in consequence of his close
connection with the Electoral Com
mission, that the Presidency was
stolen. The wdiolo country, North
and Smith, knows that Tilden and
not Hayes wan elected President, Slid
it is an everlasting disgrace to the
The JPublie Fueling.
The public indignation at the at
tempted assassination at. Washington
seems to be wide spread aud genuine.
From all parts of the country, South
as well as North, anxious inquiries,
and expressions of profound sorrow
go up to the capital. Public meet
ings arc held every where and resolu
tions of condolence are passed. Such
public calamities, if they do nothing
else, tend to illustrate the brother
hood of humanity, aud we trust will
result iu bringing about a more har
monious and conservative feeling a
mong the better classes of all par
ties aud sections. Politics run too
high, and choke out all the nobler and
liner elements of human nature.
TIbo feliooliitg of the JPrcal
On Saturday, about mid-ciay, the
terrible intelligence reached Orange
burg of the attempted assassination
of President Garlield. The villain
ous act was done by a miserable
shiftless and half demented lawyer
of Chicago, of Italian origin, named
t harlos iJutte.au, because the Presi
dent had refused him an appoint1
menl to a foreign consulate, although
he assigns as his reason for the deed
the salvation of the Republic-ill parly.
The President, was in the ladies' room
of the Baltimore and Potomac Rail
road, accompanied by Mr. Blaine,
the secretary of State. While he was
walking; arm iu arm, with Mr.
Blaine, two reports of a pistol were
heard. Mr. Blaine made for the as
sassin, hut failed to capture him. He
I ibcu called to the people to stop him,
I and he was thus taken into custody
and lodge.I in Prison. Mr. Blaine,
seeing that the President was falling,
ran Ip hi in and caught hi in in his
arms. It was found that both shots
had taken ell'eet, the lirst in the rich'
arm, ami the second, just, above the
right hip, near .the kidneys. The
physicians piobed for the balls, but
I unsuccessfully. The attempted*mttr
dorer was taken to prison and on the
way evinced the utmost eollo?s?ess.
His action w?s deliberate and deter
mined. I le shot first for the heart
and next for the stomach. He said
that he was a stalwart, aud that
Arthur was now President, and that
he did the shooting its a political ne
('easily. Letters were afterwards
found upon his person iu which he
said, 'I am a sla'.wa t of the stalwarts.
I am a lawyer, a theologian and a
politician. 1 was with Grant and the
rest of our men in New York, during
the canvass. 1 had no ill-will to
war Is the President. Iiis death was
a political necessity.'
The history of the assassin shows
him to be a worthless character. He
was a kind of dead-beat around the
hotels of Chicago. He was of
brooding revengeful disposition, and
was passionately fond of notoriety.
Iiis own lather says that he was in
sane, wicked and unreasonable, and
that he was beyond redemption.
Whether this man committed this
diva ll'u 1 crime on his own responsi
bility, or as the tool of a: other, time
alone will develop.
