A VIOOROU8 ASSERTION OF HIS CLAIM TO THE PRESIDENCE -A GREAT CRIME THAT CANNOT BE CONDONED. Hon. Samuel J. Tilden was seren aded at bis residence, Granu-rcy Park, New York, on Saturday night. An im mense crowd seized the opportunity te pay their respects to the great Re former. Hon. Augustus Schell intro duced hi m as the man w|K> honestly elected President ol the Uni ted States- Mr. Tilden made a long and spirited address, referring at tiret to the result of his observation abroad Me said bis trip had repaired as much as three mouths could the waste of aix year« consecrated to an effort for gov ernmental reform in tbe city, State and nation." Then, addressing him self to political affairs, he recommend ed the Démocratie State ticket to tbe support of his fellow-citizens, and spoke us follows on the late PreSidun .ial campaign and election: The increase of power in tbe Feder al Government during the last twenty years, the creation of a vast oflice holding class, with its numerous de pendents, and the growth of the means of corrupt influence, have well nigh destroyed the balance of our complex sysieiu. It was my judgment iu LS7ti tuat public opinion, Demanding a change of administration, needed to embrace two-thirds of the people at the beginning of the canvass in order to cast a majority of votes at tne elec tion. If this tendency is arrested Its inevitable result will he the practical destruction of our system. Let tbe Federal Government grasp power over the great corporations of our country aud acquire tbe means of addressing their interest and their fears; let it take jurisdiction of riots which it is the duty of tbe Htate to suppress, let it find pretexts fur increasing the army, scon those in possession of the govern ment will have a power with which no opposition caa successfully com plete. Tne experience of France un der the Third Napoleon shows that, with elective forms and universal suff rage, despotism eau be established aud maintained. Iu the canvass of 187* the Federal Government embark ed in the contest with unscrupulous activity. A member ef tbe Cabinet was tbe head of a partisan committee. Agents stood at tbe doors of the pay offices to exact contributions from official subordinates. The whole oftice-holdiug class were made to exhaust their power. .Even the army, for the first time, to the disgust of the aukliers and many ot th9 officers, was moved about the country as au election eering instrument. All this was done under the eye of the beneficiary of it, who vpas making the air vocal with pro fessions of civil service reform, to be be gua after he had himself exhausted all the immoral advantages of civil service abuses. Public opinion in .some States was overborne by corrupt intiueuces and by fraud. But so stroug for reform that the Democratic candi dates received 4,306,000 suffrages. This was a majority of the popular vote of about 300,000,aud of 1,250,000 of the white citizens. It was a vote 700,000 larger than General Grant received in 1872, aud 1,300,000 larger than he received in 1868. For all that the rightfully elected candi dates of the Democraticparty were coun ted out and a great fraud triumphed which the American people have not condoned and will never condone. [Pro longed applause aud cheers.] Yes, the crime will never be condoned and it never should be. I do not de nounce the fraud as affecting my person al interests, but because it stabbed tbe very foundations of free government. [Loud cheers.] I swear, in the preseuce of you all, and I call upou you to bear witness to the oath, to watch, during the remainder of my life, over the rights of the citizens of our country with a jealous care. Such a usurpation must uerer oc cur again, and I call upou you to unite with me in the defense of our sacred aud precious inhciltance. The goveruineut of the peuple must uot be suffered to be come only au empty name. [Loud ap plause.] The step from au extreme degree of corrupt abuses iu the elections to a vub versiou of the eh etive system itself is natural. over than the whole power of the office holding class led"by a Cabinet Minister, was exerted to procure aud did procure from the State canvassers of two States illegal aud fraudulent certificates, which were made a pretext for a false count of the [electoral votes. To |euable these officers to exercise the immoral courage necessary to the parts assigned to them, and to relieve tnem from the „timidity which God has implanted in the. human bosom as a limit, to criminal audacity, detach meuts of t he urrny were sent to ar ford them shelter. The expedients by wliieh the votes of these t w re jected, and the vot» s of the electors having the illegal and fraudulent certiti catcs were counted, and the menace of usurpation by the President of tbe Sen ate of dictorial power overall the ques tions in controversy, and the menace of the enforcement of his pretended authori ty by the army and navy, the terroism of the business classes and the kindred by which the false couut was The result is ablislunent of a precedent dest rue system. [Ap the desire the election No sooner States w ■usure um mated i tin live of our whole elocti plause. The temptation to those iu possession of the government to perpetuate their own power by similar methods will al ways exist, aud if the example shall be sanctioned by success the succession of government in this country will come to be determined by fraud or force, as it has beeu'iu almost every other country; aud the experience will be reproduced here which has led to the geueral adoption of the hereditary system iu order to avoid confusion aud civil war. The magnitude of a political crime must be measured by its natural and necessary consequences. Our great re public bas been the only example iu the world of a regular and orderly transfer of governmental succession by the elective systfem. To destroy the habit of tradi tionary respect for the will of the people, as declared through the electoral forms, aud to exhibit our institutions as a fail* ure, is the greatest possible wrong own oountry. It is also a heavy o the hopes of patriots struggling to ©stab to our low to lish self-government in other countries. It is » greater on me against mankind than the usurpation of December 2,1851, depicted by the illustrious pen of Victor Uugo. The American people will not condone it under any pretex for any pur pose. [Cheers.] Yopog men! in the order of nature we who have guarded the sacred tradition«! of oar free government will soou leave that work lo you. within the life ot moat who here me our republic will embrace u hundred millions of people, whether its mstitlu tions ahull be preserved in substance and in spirit as well us in barren forms, and will continue to be a blessing to the toil-, ing m'Hiona here and a good example to mankind, now everywhere seeking a larger share iu the management of their own affairs, will depsuu on you. will yOu accomplish that duty and mark theae wroug-doera of 1876 with the indiguation of a betrayed, wronged and sanflced peo ple? [A voi ter.] I have no personal feeling, bat thiuking bow surely that example will be followed If 'Cöndoned, I can do no better than to stand among you and do battle for the maintenance of free government., You bet we will ** Laoirb Another at rll».. From the Detroit Free Press. Seated on the extreme end of a nar row bench in the Central Market yes terday was a boy who seemed to have made up his mind that life was a sham aud happiness a myth. He was solemnly and intently gazing at a collection ot four cabbage heads, six beets, a peck of onious and three cucumbers, when along came a young man aud asked: "What ails you?" "Struck!' was the solemn answer. "Have, eh? How d you come out. "I was working for dad at fifty cents a day," sadly explained the boy on the bench. "1 was the only hand, and I thought that if I struck for a dollar a day he'd have to shut up the shop and be busted or come to terms,', "And did it turn out that way! tied the other. "Not quite. The old man didn't seem a bit hit terror-stricken, but he bounced me through a window and hired another boy to do my work at three shillings a day!" "What are you going to do about it now?' que "Well, I s'pose I'll have to go around telling the boys that capital has ground me into the dust," was the tearful re ply. THE 5,000 LAKES OF MINNESOTA. General James H. Baker in the St. Louis Pioneer Press. I have caused the meandered lakes in all the township plats lo be counted, aud there are in tho actually surveyed por tions of this State, jnst 4,999 meandered lakes. Calling them 5,000 in number, aud from reliable data in this office we find that these lakes average 300 acres each; this gives us an equivalent of 1, 500,000 acres of water on the surveyed portions of the State. Now, computing the lakes In the unsurveyed portions ol the State from reliable data in posession of this office, we find that there are 2,000 more lakes, which makes 7,000 in all. The number of lakes to a to vn is much greater in the uusurveyed portions of the Sta e than iu that already surveyed.They are found also to average greater areas. We find we are compelled to estimate tbe 2,000 lakes iu the uusurveyed portion at 000 acres each, which gives us an ad ditional water area of 1,200,000 acres making a total of water area on the sur veyed lands of 2,700,000 acres of water within the limits of the State. This does not embrace the vast water areas includ ed within the projected boundary lines of tbe State iu Lake Superior aud Lake of tbe Woods, and along the great water stretches of the international line. A Sleologioal 4 onostty. Eureka ( Nev. ) Sentinel. While blusting rock from one of the quarries on the hillside west of th* town, the attention of one of the work attracted by the curious for men ■nation of one of the pieces that hau been split off. au examination proved that imbedded in the rock was a wasps' nest, the texture and cells of though turned to stone, which, ai re plainly visible. On breaking open some of the cells the larvæ and two perfectly form ed wasps were found within, in the same petrified condition .is, the rest.

LAX Da London, Oct. 29.—Twelve of llie American masons who recently arrived here commenced work on buildings inthe temple on Saturday. Four others who joined the strike applied for a summons against Mr. Booth, the contractor for those buddings, lor illegally detaining their tools. Six of the Americans have obtained work through the strike com mittee at the rale desired by the Strikers. The striker's committee here offered to pay the traveling expenses of the remain der of the Americans anywhere they like. It is therefore expected that they will leave before the end of the week. END OF TUE NEW YORK. "DAIL Y REPUBLIC." The "Daily Republic,* which was started iu New York city a few weeks oue-cont morning newspaper ago by Mr. John 13. walker, iu the interest of cheap money has been changed to u weekly edition. The editor says that the cause of the change is the failure of the person to whom his Washington utWspaper, the "Daily Nation," was mortgaged to pay the money that was expected. HAYES SHOULD SEND JEFF DAV IS TO ENGLAND. From the Sunday Transcript, Rep. He has bis English Mission on his hands and to further save the Union and testify his fidelity to his party he ought to at once confer It upon Jeff Davis.

INDIGNANT VIRTUE IN OHIO. From the Columbus Statesman. Groveport is a beautiful little village situated aboat ten miles out on the O. & H. V. R. it. The minority of tbe inhabi tants are Christian men and women who attend eburcb at least twice on Sunday, yet according to report there are same Dad men and women within the corpor ate limits. Last night a married man, who lives near Reynoldsburg, and whose name might be Leisure, but is not, called on one of tbe females of the fleet men tioned village, wbo does not, according reports, bear a very good name in her native bailiwick. A dozen or more of tbe Indignant ladies who live in the im mediate neighborhood of the frail «ne congregated together, and alter arming themselves with brooms, pokers, fire shovels and other implements of female warfare, beaded by one of their number, they marched to the residence of their frail sister, it was at Dort decided upon to surround the house, which was done. Then one of their number went to the door and demanded that tbe fellow be turned over to them. Tbe man, whose name might be Leisure, but is not, de clined. He made a bolt through the back door into the yard. The sentinel (fD duty outside gave a war hoop and started in hot pursdit. Over fences and throngh the streets and alleys they went and every now and then one of the pursuers who was more fleet of foot than the balance would wack tbe horrie man over the head with her broom. The race was kept up for quite a while, but at last the unfortu nate reaobed the canal, and, being almost entirely exhausted,he concluded to either effect bis escape or else leave his corpse at the bottom. He plunged iu and being a good swimmer, reached the opposite shore in safety. The gallant band of fe male regulators all gathered on the bank and in concert told what they would do with him if they ever caught him. it is pretty safe to say chat the warning was quite uncalled for: if reports are true, young man will never show his face hat village again. to the m t THJE APPOINTMENTS OF DEMO CRATS. Washington Despatch to New York Telegram. Washington, Oct. 2*.—The anti-Hayes organ says of the appointments of Demo crats by the President, that "they be regarded as a direct insult to th S ublioan party, and it is high time that a ©publican öeuaie should fully under stand the posture of affairs, that it may f iut down Drakes and avert such rank in ustioe to a party and principles which have honored the President already overmuch.

Of course the two metals while separate do not carry the figure of the wheel of the watch, will make a cheap coiu that we can af ford to give for the paper, and we oan make it and the greenbacks as cheap as we desire. To those that want a cheap metal dollar this is the thing. the thing out It Assistant Secretary MoCormick is much more frank iu his explanations of thattOOU board bill than was Stanley Mat thews in his denials. McCormick says it was perfectly well understood that all the distinguished counsel's expenses, including the maintenance of his family, carriage hire and etceteras, were to be defrayed by the republican committee in lieu of a fee ; but he admits that Z. Chan dler didn't think it the square thing to have to pay anything after the 2d of Alarch, when the electoral fraud was consummated. Matters were amicably ar ranged, however, aud the whole bill set tled, McCormick returning a draft which Stanley had scut iu liquidation of the bal lauce of the hill which Z. Chandler wouldn't pay. We are glad that this dis tressing affair has been so circumstantial ly explained.
