Resolved , That the republican club
re-affirms its confidence in the wisdom
and judgment of the president , and

enators , the president right and
hey are entirely "wrong , and even
'rom their own standpoint obviously
wrong : . The republican members of
he legislature are therefore called

Morey letter. Philparose1 and said
that feeling sure of his innocence , oi
the indignities that he had suffered ,
iis acquittal should , come from a jury
after a fair trial. On the preliminary
examination the district attorney had
publicly said that he had overwhel
ming evidence as to the guilt ol
Morey , who wrote' the letter. He
now wanted that averment denied.
District Attorney Rollins said , for the
purpose of having it recorded : "I am
thoroughly impressed with the convic
tion that the forgery of the More ]
letter was a public crime of exceptiona
gravity , and that whoever perpetrate <
it or connived at it or was wilf till ;
concerned in its publication , is deserv

the absence of evidence sufficient to
show that the defendants were partie
to the forgery , I am unwilling to pros

CITY OF.MEXICOApril. . 24.
MY , DEAE SENATOR : I see.by the
atest dispatches received hert from the
apital of our country that the dead
ock , in organizing the senate , is not
ret broken and that nothing has been
lone by the president .to allay .the
iitterness which must be engendred by
lis most recent appointments. When
ihe first batch of - nomination for
Sew York was sent , ' , I was
delighted. I believed then , the Pres-
dent had determined to recognize the
epublican party , and not a faction ,
> ut his nominations of the next day
convinced me that the first act was but
a part of a deep laid scheme by soine-
Xdy < to punish prominent leaders for
> eing openly friendly to me. I can
not believe that Gen. jQarfield is the
iuthor of this policy. I give 'him the
credit for being too big a man to des
cend to such modes for punishment
3fjnen who.gave'him a hearty support
n his election and who are disposed
o give the same support now , for the
iffense of having had a former pref-
rence for some one else for the office
which he now holds , but Garfield is.
resident and is responsible for all the
acts of the administration. Conkling
and Platt' are the chosen senators from
he great 'state of- New York" and that
,00 against all the opposition of an
administration created by the same
larty that elected them. This'should

Mr.E.R. , Paige lectured at/the
Academy of' ' 'Music ' last evening'on
"Perihelia,1' ' the period when the
planets are in position nearest the sun.
Eleven ladies' and
men'listened ' to his grand aggregation
/ A > ? * ' ' "
* of compiled , statistics. He said , - nothing
ing new , except a.few , extraordinary
discoveries of-hia own. For instance ,
be * said the World was approaching de
struction at the rate of a second every
two greeks , andhe had made a .fine
calculation and discovered that the
grand bust up would take place 'in
atioui 35,000,000 years , but.he addec
fhat'there was no. doubt that the earth
would kick the bucket five' or ten
millions of years before that date ,
The lecturer didn't seem to mind an ]
such' little period as the difference be
tween five and ten million years. The
audience seemed to consider that they
would be all white-haired and bent be
fore that , period , came , and they
wouldn't'have much more use for the
world then , anyhow. Ho expectec
that before many million years the
moon would have to go out of busi
ness , when it would form a gigantic
circle of cobble stones about the earth.
It'is to be'hoped the paving of our
streets will not bo postponed unti
then. Mr. Paige said thirty days
from 8 o'clock yesterday morning , al
the 'planets would be on a line with
the sun , with the earth at the tail end
of' the cart , the others all tugging a
it. > -
"What it may do , .you can judge as
well as I , " exclaimed the l5cturerane ,
it did seem To be about a ten up
He said there wonldbe sickness.earth
quake , and the devil to pay generally
but as the audience was just getting
into fever heat , the lecturer kindli
assured , all ; hands there wouldn't be
any of it in this country. No objec
tion 'was expressed.
'Behind the. lecturer , was a large
screen , , on which were painted a few
buzz saws , some marbles , and eevera
big foot ball * , an of which Mr. Paige
refe.rre i to row and' then , as worlds
Mwfplanets , 'and other .trappings , o
the .universe : He used a lady's ridinj
wluj W * call'attention to' the fine
pointa1 'of tneafe balls and buzz saws
"W'41 " . . ' * ' !

particularly the bozz saws.
* tPsige " > ha a < &a& memory fo
big figures , , and things that he has
read , but ss a scientific lecturer , he is
as mucE out of , place as a rhinoceros
leading an orchestra.
The lecture wound up with a grant
assault on Christianity and its teach
ings. Mr. Paige was careful to keep
this till the last , else his vast audience
mighthave speedily dwindled away to
his own-dear self.
