visli to put Tin Cmiie on record res ap
preciating to llio lnsttlcgrco the brilliancy
of such n conception. It came on n dull
day like an otjli of scimtion In a desert

Hut our esteemed contimpnrnry will

us why we reject the proposition In ipici

friends to think and say that he was. Ho
Mould not lime pursued tho course that
lie has pursued with sui.li obstinate energy
for the rnst ear. He would not
iac written tho ltllen that ho
bus written or delivered tho
iccchci that ho has delivered. He
would not hae bicn 7) constantly n tm'

Ko one iw'csiiiig tho sni dlest acqualnt

to hellcvctlmt he would have eourted all
this notoriety and endured all these tlre
m me end laborious functions save In tho
iiirsult of n serious and overshadowing
1 nrjtoie. Mr. Cilv el vmi is not a grei
rious animal. Jfo never was. Hu has
Krtnt foiidncs for n few clium, but
iienc for mankind at large. Kveuln his
5 outh, when a man about town In ISulTiilo,
be was noted for this trait. Ho brought

life without a motive, ami, from belli,; a
r chife, lias burgeoned Into a llucnt and
t-stcnlatious rounder," N asking a little
too much.
Then, again, why have they sent Mr.
AVniTsrv hero to mako a rev elation which
could havo been better made in 2ft vv York,
and which was of fur greater linportanco
there? '1 he riv al aspirations of Jlr. Ci E J -j.amj

This rivalry has been Industriously ex

lias bctti permitted to reach a point
ut which t lie wisest leadcis of the
Democracy perceived tint tho

either nominated. Why has this perilous
conflict been prosecuted If Mr. Cu v ll vm
ih not an aspirant? Why Ins the organi
zation In New Yoik been carried to tho
-verge of disintegration, all for nothing.'
And, i'nally, If Mr. Cli I i.vmi had long
iigo determined not to seek or accept tho
nomination, why was this resolvo
guarded so carefully at tho point where Its
promulgation would havo done inllnito
gocd and left to leak out lu Washington
under circumstances that dcprlvo it of
Authenticity and, therefore, of vnhic?
Wo take tho liberty of refusing to be
lieve that Mr. Ci em land docs not want
llio nomination, and will nottako it if it
be offered him. Ho may havo at list
realized that ho is not likely to get It
that his own State delegation will not sup

was between tho ability to write and tho

Another Account of tlio Charge Against
Sir (lorilan-CiiminliiK.
Nl w YorK, Feb. 20. The Ti ibnne this
morning publishes tho following over tho
signature "Hx-Dlploinat:"
Mv knowledge of tho career both In
I ondon and on the Nllo of Sir William
Gordon Cumiiilng, whose acquaintance I
shall, at ony rato for tho present, con
tinue lo regard as an honor, convinces mo
that Jlr. Yates has been Intentionally
misinformed ot tho facts lu tho case and
that the following account, emanating
from n member of what Is known In Lon
don ns llio "Marlborough Houso set," Is
the correct version. According to tlio
latter the original charge ogalnst Sir Wil
liam wos to tho effect that ho had made
use of a silver clgaretto case w Ith a highly
polished lid for tho purposoof tijeuriiign
rcllectlon therein of Ihr face of tho cards
which he was dealing out.
It is acrlcd that ono of the persons or
the parlv was Ill-bred enough to bo put out
nf temper by his losses, caught sight of tlio
clgoretto case in question, and gavo vent
to Ids ill-humor by bluntly requesting Sir
William to reniov oil from the table. Sir
William is hics'eil w 1th a notorlomly short
temper, and a stormy sceno ensued, which
resulted In tho matter being submitted to
the arbitration of General Owen Williams
and Lord Coventry. 'I ho question which
they werocallcel iqion to decide was as to
whether Sir William had taken any un
fair odvoiitogcof tlio rcllectlon of thocards
upon the polished lid of his cigarette case.
While, on the other hand, Sir William
had been an extensive winner on this
particular evening, it must, nn tlio other
hand, be borne In mind that ho is o bicli
clor, in possession of estates yielding him
nuetlncomo of somo ?00 000 or $70,000 a
j car. Itlsdlfllcult therefore, to under
stand what Inducement tho baronet can
have had to cheat, least of all by so vulgar
nnd transparent a method as "la poucctte."
Had he been caught cheating ill this man
lier, no question could havo possibly
arisen as to ids guilt, and ho would long
ago have been dismissed the army and
cxt'ciicti lrom tlic cuius.
The very fact that ho still belongs to the
Marlborough and Guards clubs, and that
lils name is still retained on tho rolls ot
the army, is sufilclcnt to prove that con
siderable donbt cxlts as to his guilt. Up
to the present neither Lord Coventry nor
General Owen Williams, the two arbltrv
tors, has made ony public statement with
regard to tho matter, nor lias the Prince
of Wolc. And Ills manifestly lu favor
of bir William's Innocence that he should
have Mibpanacd all three to testify in
Ills behalf In tho libel suits which hohas
brought against tlio persons to vv hos s m i
icvolcncc he has traccel the rumors that
aro current aiTcctiug his honor.
The names of theso pcrsonscarry w eight

iftttt of their acceptance by London
society. Sir William, who Is tho head of
enc of (lie most ancient families of Scot
land, and who has until now been known
rs nn officer of distinguished gallantry
and of the most unsullied honor, very
justly asserts that Ills name and his past
carter entitled his word to a belief and
consideration equal at least to tint ac
corded to his somewhat parvenu calum
niators; and there Is a disposition, both on
the art of his brother olllecrs and of the
London public in general, to regard him
as tho victim of a particularly malignant
