Cincinnati Enqnirer.] Speaking of Coukling the other day, a friend of the ex-Senator said that President Arthur had urged upon him to accept.a place in his Cabinet. Even after Mr. Coukling had declined the President ap pealed to hint again to accept. Mr. Coukling, so the story goes, told President Arthnr that he bad been serving the public for nearly a quarter of a ceutnry—for over 20 years—and he was comparatively a poor man. He had an expensive family of his own, besides the most of his father's family, to provide for, and he asked the President if lie thought it would be doing jus tice to himself to sacrifice the very lucrative law busineas he had now for a Cabinet position, which would only pay him $8000 jier year. He t old the President that he was will ing and anxious, too, to do any thing in his power to make his ad ministration a success, but he sub mitted that should he accept the position tendered him now it would be at a great pecuniary sa crifice. Mr. Conkling's friend says that the ex-Benatfir has at the pres ent time twelve separate retainers of 45000 each, and others, making in all over $100,000. Besides this the ex-fienator has an engagement to visit St. Louis in January next to argue a case in that city which will pay him $2000 for every day that he is absent from New York, and that compensation to com mence from the hour that he starts from New York for the Mound City. In answer to a query as to whether ex-fieu»tor Coukling ever intended to enter politics again, his frieutl said that in the course of four or five years he thought that Mr. Coukling would do so. He was of the opinion that he was too poor a man to do so now, ami that a poor man could not afford to stay in politics. At the expira tion of the time mentioned Mr. Coukling expected, if his health and life are spared, to have at least a cool million iu money of his own, and then he could afford to and would resume polities, because he liked political life. I Loud FitterN, a hood Father, Etc. [Sew York Telegram.] In the course of eight years Os car L. Baldwin, cashier of the Me chanics' National Bank of New York, made away with some $2, 500,000 of the bauk's money. No body believes Baldwin's statement that the whole of this vast sum whs absorbed by the firm of Nu gent. $ Co, He, however, steadily maintains that he has not specu lated, and that he is not a dollar richer by the defalcation. As he didn't start a daily paper to fill a long-felt want jt is difilci|lt to un derstand how he got rid of so much money in so short a period. If he esiployed a plumber steadily at the rate of $50,000 per annum, that would only aecpnnt for $400,000. We iucliue to the belief tliata man who can deliberately steal $2,500, 000 is quite capable of lying to con ceal and preserve such portion of the stolen funds as he may have salted down for future use. Bald win had all the traditional virtues of the defaulting bank official. He was deeply religious, highly res pectable and generally trusted. A good citizen, a good father and a good Christian, uone knew him hut to love, none named him hut to prais e. ^ _ A Noybi- Tool Ch est.-- A burglar recently arrested in Lead ville, but discharged for lack of evidence, is now limping about Colorado with the tools of hi# pro fession neatly concealed in his wooden leg. This convenient receptacle was not discovert] by the iailor until after he had receiv ed insti'ttction» to release his prisoner. Irish Landlords, [Galveeton New*.] In their appeals to Parliament from the decrees of the I/and Court, the landlords of Ireland will probably find few sympathizers outside of their own class any where ou the earth. They will rely upon a broken reed if they build their hopes upon the sympathy and influence of the sentiment that has antagonized the violent, lawless amf irresponsible proceedings of the extreme fanatics of the League. That sentiment has all the time been loyal to the legitimate objects of the League and to all its lawful and peaceful modes of reform; and now that the proceedings of the Land Court are giving form and pressure to its highest aspirat ions, it will erystaHze in conservative support of the law and the eourt decrees. In America there will he but one voice, and that agahist the recalcitrant landlords ; and ko far as American sympathy is con cerned it will flow out in one un broken channel for the affirmance of the rent decrees and the per manent progress of the reforma tion of abuses in Ireland. If the landlords and aristocracy of Ire land and England have mistaken the att itude of America on the dyn amite and torpedo developments of the League, as favoring their course, let them be at once unde ceived. There has been no such feeling 111 this country. The influ ence that has been brought to bear against the lawless and revolu tionary proceedings of the League, was inspired by a deep-seated sym pathy for the distressed and help less people of Ireland, and the calm conviction that their cause could only he successful through pnacefn! processes and moral forces. That influence will be as potential in holding the landlords to the law and its consequences, as it has been in bringing the ten antry to the acceptance of the law and its possible benetits. Fast HorkVlteUi Making. [Scientific American.] Governor's day at the Atlanta Exposition was signalised by the manufacture of two complete suits of clothes from growing cotton, all the processes being fin ished within twelve hours. A large crowd watched the skillful work men. The gathering, ginning, picking, carding, spinning, weav ing, and dyeiug were successively completed with great rapidity and perfection, and at 12:55 o'clock in the afternoon the cloth went to the tailor. That evening at 7 o'clock Governor Bigelow, of Con necticut' arrayed in one of the suits, was receiving a delegation from the Atlanta University at the residence of Director General Kimball, while iu the other Gov ernor Colquitt was suhuiittiug himself to admiratiou at the Ex ecutive Mansion. The Mormons are still coming by thousands to our shores. The New York Herald notes the arri val of 387 of them on one of the Guion Line steamers the other day. A reporter had au interview with oue of the hiissiouaries, who announced that his church ]vas prospering in Europe and gaining new converts every day; «that there were so many on haud there that it was impossible to bring them over to this country as fast as was desired. Bo much for the recruit# pf the Church of "Latter Day Baiut«." As an evidence of how much attention the Mormons pay to the acts of Congress, it is showu that there were more po lygamous marriages celebrated in Utah in 1H8Ü than in any previous year ip the history of that Terri tory. —f jJ.

[Memphis Avalanche] In one of the Mississippi towns, not very far from Memphis, on th« line of the Mississippi and Tenne- see Railroad, a little lady, aged 15 years, shot and severely wounded an impudent white tramp, who at- tempted to enter the bense after being ordered not to do so. The la- dy, who is small bnt game, and a crack shot with a pisiol, was'the only white person in the house when the burly tramp approached. "We have nothing for you; you needn't come in," said she to the tramp. "But I will come in," he answered. "Yon had better not, or yon will get what yon don't want»' qnietly responded the lady, as she laid down her knitting, picked np a six-shooter from her work bas- ket and approached the door. "You go back iu yonr room, or I'll pitch yon out of the window," exclaimed the ruffianly tramp, as he walked inside the door. Bang! went the pistol, and the tramp staggered back on the porch, shot through the arm and breast. Bhe raised the pistol again, but the tramp fled. A neighbor rushed aronnd the house, and asked the little lady» who was sitting down and engaged in kuitting, with her pistol in her work basket, "What's the mattert,'' She exclaimed, "He's gone!" He then asked, "Did you shoot hunt" "Yes," she replied, "and If he kept on coming, I would bo shoot- ing until now." The tramp was found to be bleeding profusely, and it was with difficulty that the flow of blood could be stopped. He left the town » sadder and a wiser man, having been taught a lesson iu mauners that he will not soon forget. That gam« little wo- mau is worth her weight in gold dollars. ----------ip « I« « --- I It liaving become evident that the ltepeblicans, by the loss of the Eleventh Congressional District, had lost control of the House, they are looking around fox allies. It is said that they have finally de termined to iuvite the two members from Virginia, elected as Readjns er-Deinocrats, into the Republican party. The Mahouites are dispos ed to follow in their leader's foot steps, but, like him, will bargain with the Republicans and offer to vote for their candidate for Speak er, if the position of Clerk or Ber geuut-at,urms be given to the lkiadj asters.
