On the 1'ith of lust Scptombcrthoro assem

however that w hen the pcoplo ot Costa Ulca
undeistand the sltuitlon und tha cucutn

the new confederacy , although lho opposition
Is very active and determined *
lho plan of union , w hich has been under
discussion in the sovcral republics for miuy
years Is a popular oao among the poopla and
the only obstacle to carrying it out is the
Jealousy tint exists among the local leaders ,
who to use a homely plnnso , would rather bo
largo toads in small puddles than small toads
in lnrco , puddles

Major John M Carson , tbo correspondent
of tbo Philadelphia Ledger , who is ono of

noivspapcr men in Wushiunton , uud has u
n itionul reputation as a writer ou llnancial
topics , becumou i undidato for clerk of tno
house at tbo solicitation of Judge Kelly uud
some of the older members and at tbo ad
Journmcnt of thu last congress had pledges
from all but ono or two of the Pennsylvania
repiescntativos that they would give him
their votes A majority of those gentlcnnn ,
however , at the dictation of bcuutor Quay
at the Pennsylvania caucus today , will
violate these i ledges and support another
candlduto whom ho happens to favor In
speaking ot this tonight Major Carson said
' 1 anticipated this outcome It can bo ex
plained in a few words lho interference of
Senator Quuy has passed bov and the urbl
trar.y mniiagonicnt of the town caucuses to
the urhitrary manutcment of the congress of
the United States 1 had tbo best of reasons
for believing that a largo niujoritv of the
Pennsylvania delegation would bo with me
Messrs Darlington , Yurdley and Scrunton
lufoimed mo personally that they would sup
port mo and Wutaon guvo u like pledge to u
mutual friend Ibcsc four gentlemen , at tbo
dlctatiou of Senator Quav , voted lor my

phiu did not at any tlmo say to mo
that I would have his support ,
but some of his most , intituato
friends had pledged that ho would
suiport mo llvo wcoks n o I had a talk
with Mr Quay iu bis commlltoo room I
then informed him that I had not consulted
him or Mr Catucion about tha clerkship be
cause I thought it was u mutter which did
not concern them , that tbo interference of
senators with house organization would bo
unwise and unpolitic , auu so bolleving I had
not como to him to solicit aid Quay assured
mo that bo shared my oollaf as to senatorial
interference , and declared that ho bud no
purpose to tuito liny Dart in the con
test Ho admitted that tils sympa
thies vvoro with my opponent nnd
knowing the man 1 expressed the fear that
bis ' sympathies would lead bim to solicit
votes for him Hut ho renewed thu uBsur-
uuco that ho would tuko no part in tbo con
test I huvo reason to believe that prior to
this lnterviow Mr ' ' '
Qu ly's sympathies had
materialized into uciion I nm c reditably infer
for mod that ho has sent for moiiihora uud re
quested them to vote against mo Iu onu in

promised to sui poit ma and intended to dose
so , Quuy reilied , Well , perhaps you

Does this action of the Pennsylvania
members take you out of t ! o contest ! '
