[Washington Cor. 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.

[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.

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. O. Democrat.

ShootiKfl « Tramp.
[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.

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

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

this offer will he aooepted, as a
better bargain can be obtained
from them than frein the Green*
