Th® Pop®'« Allocution—Orangemen In Ireland—General Topics Abroad. RomK, Oct. 7.—The Pope In an allocution upon receiving a larg pilgrims, in the Baslii day, said that Le rejoiced to witness the con cord existing betweeu the clergy and their flocks. The conspiracy of sects had reduced the papacy to a condition unworthy of Its rank. The historical researches of learned men proved that the papacy waa no enemy of Italy, but that it had always been tuated by sovercl civilization derived from the papacy in creased vitality and strength. The real ob ject of the sectaries in depriving the Pope of temporal power was to strike a blow at the church and rob Italy of the treasure ol faith. Kccrut impious demonstrations made laspbeinous voices have been raised In Rome itself. To avoid the destruction of Catholicism it behooved all patriotic and religious forces to unite and show themselves openly as Catholics, and to desire above ail things to restore the Pope to that condition of liberty and independence which is his due. The Pope spoke for 20 minutes. He looked very pale, almost cadaverous. His audience numbered 10,000. ATTITUDE OP THE ORANGEMEN. Belfast, Oct, 7.—Col. King-Harman, M.

Minneapolis, Minn., Oct. 7.— The Tri bune to-day published a dispatch from thoritative quarters to the following effect: "Despite the many assertions said to be made on authority from Greys tone that Tilden would, under no circumstances, con sent to be the Pre-idential candidate of the Democratic party in 1884, It may safely be set down that a desperate effort will be made to nominate the old ticket with the full knowledge and consent of tho two gentle men most directly interested. A Bhort time ago Hendricks made a quiet visit to Tilden and effected an adjustment of the misunderstanding which had existed between them since the campaign of 187tt, after which he disclosed the real object of his visit by trying to induce Tilden to allow his name to go before the National Conven tion. After an extended, conversation, in the course of which many objections ad vanced by Tilden were met and satisfactorily answered by Hendricks, Tilden said: "Well, I shouldn't mind it é*cept for the labor of making another campaign," to which Hendricks replied assuring Tilden that tho campaign was already made and he had but to speak the word to secure the nomination. This seemed to satisfy Tilden, and they parted with the full understanding that the 1881 leket would 1)6 P ut tefore the people In Shortly after Hendricks' visit John Kelly made a journey to Greyetone ou the same business, presumably on a hint dropoed by Hendricks. Kelly assured Tilden that he had "buried the iiatchet" and was anxious to see the old ticket renominated, that he would work hard and fathfully to accomplish that end aud also to secure their election. It is intimated that Hendricks is actuated by the fact that 'fllden man and decidely feeble, and that he (Hen dricks) would have much of the work of the presidential office to do, and would probably become President before the end of the term by reason of Tilden 's death or total disability. Kelly wants Tilden nominated so as to pay off old political debts, and his nomina tion would retire Cleveland and others, for whom he has a strong dislike. ft u He said is an old OPINIONS IN NEW YORK. [Fhlla. Press Special. J New Yokk, Oct. 7.—' The reports from Minucapolis that Mr. Hendricks and John Kelly had received Mr. Tilden's cunseut to be a candidate next year, providing the old ticket is Dominated, is a repltltion of a sim ilar tqlc which was published sooio weeks ago. It is a fact that Mr. Hendricks paid a quiet visit to New York early in September, and stopped at a private house, presumably to avoid publicity. While here, it is alleged that he stopped at Greystonc and had interview with Mr. Tilden, at which John Kelly was present. Mr. Kelly's organ, the Star , shortly after words announced editorially that the old ticket would receive its support if nomina ted. This Is all that is publicly known ol the alleged interview. The Times will say to-morrow in regard to the report: There is a good deal of plausibility in this "dispatch Irom authoritative quarters," which the Minneapolis Tribune published yesterday. How natural that Mr. Hendricks, reflecting on the streupth aud astuteness of Hoi McDonald inclines a highly flattered car,and considering how that frail thread of life which holds the foremost end of the old ticket in potion might snap presidential service, should go down on his knees to the illustrious recluse of Greystonc and beseech him to bring out the grand old gonfalon and dust It up for '84, and if John Kelly, tenderly taking in his own, hand of the man he has wronged, should contrition and assure tho old ticket that Tammany would be for it to its last bar louder, what under the chafing of even a few short months of would be lacking to complete the picture and todriveMr. Dana's IIolman into a liratic asylum? Nothing; assuredly. But our latest advices from Greystonc are to the effect that Mr. Tilden has given up all thoughts of presidei cy—for this (all at least. It is believed that Mr. Tildeu is making arrangements for an extended trip in South ern waters on his yacht Yosemite, but he has not yet publicly announced his Intention of going away.

Speaker Randall and Mr. Henael Confident of Democratic Success—A General Re view of the Situation. CNew York World Special.] Cincinnati, Oct. 7.— The cam Deign in Ohio closed last night with big Democratic meetings in all the large cities fn the State— ex Sena 1 or Doolittle at. Columbus, 8enator 1 hurman at Mount Vernon, Speaker Ran dall at Cleveland, Congressman Cox and Frank Hurd at Toledo, Judge Hoadly at Dayton, ex-Senator McDonald and Senator Pendleton at Cincinnati—and meetings all over tho rural districts ad dressed by good local talent. The Republicans had meetings every where, but not such an arrav of prominent speakers as the Democrats. 'Foraker spoke at Cincinnati, Noyes at NelsonviUe and Judge Lawrence at Cleveland. The Secono Amendment pcop'e literally covered the State with speakers last night, and to day everywhere took up the theme in pulpit and Sunday school. At the Democratic meeting at Columbus, on the same platform with Doolittle, Colone 1 Murrell of Baltimore made a speech, urging the colored men to vote the Hoadlcy ticket. The colored vote In Ohio is about 25,000. The Af ro-American, a paper edited here by a colored man, has all along been a Hoadly paper, and Peter H. Clark, the father of the young man who edits it, has been on the stump for the Democratic ticket. COLORED VOTERS FOR HOADLY. A deflection of the colored vote*at Xenia, in Greene county, is also reported, but the latest trouble in colored political circles is that with the Colored Palriot t heretofore a staunch Republican Journal, which, accord ing to the best information, will appear to morrow strongly advocating the election of Judge Hoadly. The editor of the Patriot. John Cumley, desired the Republican State Executive Committee to take 1,000 copies weekly, but tho offer was refused, similar applicatiou \i as made to the County Committee and Lincoln Club, with like results. At the committee rooms Mr. Cumley was refused admittance by Mr. 8&ntmeyer, who accused him of lighting Tom Young. Cumley de nied that such was the case, and the lie soon passed. Cumley is very sore, and will not. say much, but intimates that he will get even. A hue and cry of fraul Is now raised by both parties, and both parties arc offering rewards in advance for information that will lead to the conviction of persons who aid 1 or abet fraud at the coming election. REPUBLICANS CONCEDE HAMILTON COUNTY. lo-night Republicans in cool judgment concede Hamilton county to Hoadly by from one to two thousand, while Dem ocrats claim five to The Republicans claim a ma jority oi the 13 members of the General Assembly to be chosen in the county, the counties oi Hamilton, Cuyahoga, Lucas and Franklin are 25,000 voters of foreign birth, about 1'our-iUt.hs of whom are Ger It is a point in dispute between the two parties whether theeo foreign-born voters will stick bodily to the Democratic party, and that is a point which the election alone will settle. The total foreign vote in the State is, in round uumbers, 191,000. But, as a rule, the effectiveness of this vote may be very much increased from the fact of the large number of American voters born of foreign parents. At the meetings here lost night a singular coincidence was that Foraker and Pendle ton both touched on the second amendment. Foraker, the Republican, was opposed to it because he regarded bo.th amendments nccczsary siuce i he enactment of Hie Scott law. Pendleton, the Democrat, opposed it because he preferred tho license amendment as the more practical of the two. PANICKY REPUBLICANS, Dayton, O., Oct. 7.—Iu this part of Ohio it is certaiu that Democrats will rather go over than fail behind their majority for Newman, when they carried the 8tate by 20,000 majority. The same may be said of all other populous districts iu tho State, where injurious effects upon busiuess of a prohibitory ameudraent are appreciated. The Republicans are panicky and the Demo crats are confident. So Republican claims more than from three to five thousand ma jority for Foraker, while Democrats claim iroai ten thousand upward for Hoadly. The situation in Hamilton county renders legis lature doubtful. RANDALL AND HINSEL HOPEFUL. [Philadelphia Times. ] Ex-Speaker Randall and Chairman Hen sel, who left Cleveland immediately after their meeting there on Saturday night, re turned to Philadelphia on the day''express last evening. Both of them represent that their party is In excellent condition in Ohio and confident of success. Mr. Randall, who spent a week in different parts of the 8tate and spoke every night, is especially hopeful of a Democratic majority in the Legislature, basing his confidence on what ho considers the certainty of a Democratic delegation from Cuyahoga county. Neither the tariff" question nor any other national issue has entered very largely into tno canvass, all the popular excitement being centered upon the liquor question; the Democratic line is unbroken; the German vote, which last year gave the Democrats 1 he State on a compara tively light poll, is still with them, but the Republicans expect to bring out their stay at-homes. The greatest interest is felt in the laager cities and this is to the benefit of Hoadly. Mr. Hensel claims to have seen signs of Republican disintegration everywhere and, while he disavows any right to forecast the result Irom ten hours' travel and stay in the State, he thinks all the chances are in Hoadly 's favor. countless seven thousand for him. In an A Colored Lady's Demand. Washington, Oct. 7.—Colored society fn Washington Is greatly agitated over the fil ing of a suit for $10,000 damages by Mrs. A. M. Boston against Mrs. J. A. Powell.

Now she brines suit against Mrs. Powell, alleging that the charges against her are untrue and malicious, claiming that her reputation has teen damaged to the extent off10,000.
