Thomas Marsh, living at No. 423 Reed street, sworn I was in company with Taylor when he was beaten; the row commenced at (fourth and Reed slreets: they left, and went to FUth and Res1 streets: I assisted some men who were being beater.; I turned around and saw the deceased standing in the door of a bar-room: the crowd made for hliu; some body reached over and hit him on tbe bead; to save the man from Injury, I got between bim and the mob; he was knocked down and stamped upon, but the crowd was so dense I could not tell who they were; I was down myself; Taylor did not say anything: be made no outcry; I have seen some men since who were there, but none who aid the stamping; I saw a man with a silver tube In his eye; I think his name Is Burns; I did not see him do any striking; he was one of tbe rioters.

Ns names could be given; but all had seen a man having a tube Inserted In one side of his nose. No evidence was given to criminate the prisoner. Ghobts. Whether the vicinity of Third and German streets Is luvored with supernatural visitations, or that the mind of our informant was made whimsical by frequent tipplings, we sny not; bnt it was affirmed that, last night, in an old dwelling;, which had for months been given up to the freedom of rats and roadies, were seen "Phantoms arising as the mists arise," It was soon mooted around that sneotres verily, ghosts were rambling; In delightful an tics about the ancient house, and so excited were those who gathered round, that sepulchral sounds even most terrible ani ghostly yells aud groans were heard existing, however, only in tne imagination 01 those gathered there. For moonshine its mellow rays piercing through chinks in the roof, and reflected on the tattered paper of a wall, which waved to and fro was all that there was of those so-called ghosts.

Escobedo is out in a letter in which he disap proves of the proposed convocation of church and civil representatives. He is favor of having the people vote at once for President and mem bers of Congress, so that the Republic may be at once restored to security and tranquillity. The Southern and Central States of Blexico are declaring generally in favor of General Torfirio Diaz for President. Juarez is con sidered too conservative by many, and others seem to think that Diaz would hasten annexa tion to the United States. Many American emigrants to Brazil, especi ally from New York and Philadelphia, have been swindled by speculators, and are now at Bio in a destitute condition. FROM WASHINGTON THIS P. M.

The Tunisian Ambassador, General Ilussein is still the object of marked attention by prominent officers of the Govern ment. He will leave here in a few days for Tunis. IMPORTANT CONSTITUTIONAL QUESTIONS. Washington (Oct. 15) Corret. of the Boston Post. Hon. Francis Thomas stated belore the s.ih. committee to-day his complaints against the present State government of Wary land, contend ing that no State government was republican in form which violated the cardinal principle of apportioning representation accordiug to popu lation. He said the new constitution of Mary land practically placed the government of the Htate in the bauds or a minority or oue-tbird of Its people. Another grave question, he said, was whether a State government reorganized by the TjDited States can be superseded bv a new form ol government created in defiance of the pro- V181UU3U1 tue exmuun ceusittution, ana especially whether a Convention called by a Legislature in defiance'of tbe provisions of the Constitution under which said Legislature acts, and which Convention is made up on a reprcseutative basis unknown to tne Constitution ot a btate, is sucn as can legally act on behalf of the people of a btate. Such a body being clearly revolutionary, the quetlon remains to be determined by the authorities of the United States whether the forms of government guaranteed to tbe people ot the States are to be changed according to the terms prescribed therein, by which the United States Government, the State Govern ment, and the people of the State, are equally bound, or by revolutionary processes, in total disregard of tbe terms of a solemn compact. The determinations of these important questions will not only affect the validity of the pretended new Constitution of Marylend, but are essential to the stability of our Government. tme thing was clear ana admitted by both parties, that Congress must be satisfied that the Government of a State is republican in form, and that it bad a right to go behind the creden tials of Senators and inquire into the whole subject. The obligation of the Government, under the first clause of the fourth section of the first article of the United States Constitu tion, known as the "guarantee clause," is bind ing upon every State in this Union, and it U therefore competent for Congress, nay, obligatory upon it, to Inquire into the form of government or any state wnen petitioned so to 3o bv the people. The committee heard Mr. Thomas through, when Mr. Lawrence, of Ohio (.radical), gooa-natureaiy remarked tnat he would like to have the present condition of his own State likewise inquired into by Congress.

Has tha Republic Been J net to XW Family of Abraham Lincoln I To the Editor 0 the If. Y. Tribune: Sir: Every Patriotic citizen has been pained and humiliated by the exhibition of iujustice and Ingratitude developed by the recent publi cations in the newspapers in regard to the sale of certain articles by Mrs. Lincoln. Republics have been so long reproached for lugratltado that it has passed into a proverb. Few more striking illustrations of it can be found in history than the treatment of the family of the martyred President. This is the more strange from the fact that his party has continued in power since his assassination, and most of those who were bis associates in nublio lite are in Congress and In the public service, in positions to control the action of the Govern ment. An attempt has been made to shield the Government from this reproach by the allega tion that Mrs. Lincoln is not "popular," etc. It is enough to say, in reply to all this, that she is the widow of Abraham Lincoln. She was, while fhe lived, hU cherished and honored wife, towards whom he ever manifested the moit aliiclinnate regard and respect. Btoken-hearted, and almost grief-distracted, Is it not most un generous and unmanly to make her conduct now, since her terrible and crushing bereave ment, the subject of careless criticism and cruel censure f Neither tho world nor posterity will, upon such grounds, excuse the American people or tho American Congress for their neglect their injustice towards the family of the late President. No gallant soldier ever gave his life more directly a sacrifice for his country than Lincoln. He was murdered because of his fidelity to Liberty and the Republic. 13y his death bis family lias been left without a protector and without the means of adequate support. The least that Congress should have done was to have pven to his family the salary which tho assassin prevented him from receiving. But it is a precedent long established in our Govern ment to pension the widows and children of those who are killed in the service. Sball the widow and children of Abraham Lincoln be the only eyceptlons ? I would not have our country imitate the ex travagant expenditures lavishod by Europe upon her great men; but America could well take a lesson from abroad injustice, if not in gratitude, to those who render her great and distinguished service. In Europe is seen everywhere the wealth and honor lavished upon her great men. Go to Blenheim and see the magnificence which Enerland lavished upon her Marlborough. Go toWestminstcr Abbey, and see how a monarchy honors its heroes ana statesmen. Goto the residence of Wellington and turn over the appropriations of Parliament, and see the millions which Great Britain proudly offered the conqueror at Waterloo. Go to Tans and see how a nation's revenues have been proudlv spent to honor the memory of Napoleon. These ore not examples to be followed by a plain, simple, economical republic, but is it proper or just that the widow of Lincoln should not be provided with a home in whieh, suitably to the position her husband occupied, she should re ceive the good, the iutellieent, the distinguished from all the world, who love to honor the memory of the great Emancipator by respectful attentions to his family? Is tbere a man in the republic who would question an appropriation which would give to Mrs. Lincoln such a home, and to her son the best education the country can afford! Congress has not done its duty in this regard. Let it at its approaching session relieve the republic from just reproach, by voting to the lamny 01 Lincoln sucn sum as win educate tne son and decently support the widow. very respcctiuiiy jours, Isaac R.

Late last night a formidable delegation of Thlladelphia Democratic politicians came down, for what purpose kas not yet been ascertained, but it is supposed to bo in reference to Govern ment appointments in Philadelphia. This morn iDg the party waited on Secretary McCulloch, and fhe Secretary accompanied them to the White House to see the President, but on their arrival at tbe Executive mansion, the President and General Grant were on the point of leaving to attend the review of regular troops; so the Philadelphisus had to postpone their interview with the President till later in the day. Troops Reviewed, The regular troops in and around Washing ton, consisting of the 12th and 44th Infantry and a squadron of the 6th Cavalry, were re viewed this morning by the President aod General Grant, on the grounds south of the Executive Mansion. There was not a large attendance of citizens, owing to a mistake of the notipe of the review, which erroneously stated that it would take place to-morrow. The President and General Grant were both In citi zen's dress and on foot, and were accompanied by General Emory and numerous staff officers in uniform. The troops numbered about twelve hundred men, and made a very fine display in the bright, clear sunlight. The distinguished party mado the circuit ot the troops, while the bauds played "Hail to the Chief," and afterwards the 12th Regiment per formed several battalion manoeuvres in column and the deployments, according to the new sys tem of Upton's tactics, in presence of the Presi dent and Gsneral Grant, occupying more than an hour, after which the President aud Grant walked to the White House, Grant taking the left side of the President. There was no cheer ing, but in response to numerous salutations, both Grant and the President acknowledged the compliment by raising their hats to the people. Blair on Grant. There is much discussion to day relative to the declaration last night by Montgomery Blair, in his speech at the serenade, that he was posi tive that Grant had expressed gratification at the result of the recent elections, and his claim ing that Grant is in accord with the conserva tivss. Blair's friends persist in the statement, although, uinlr nlmseU says lie did n,ot get It from Grant, but he feels confident that what he asserted in his speech is substantially cor rect. The Chase party are making capital out of this, and maintain that it is not safe for the Republicans to trust any man unless he opeuly and emphatically declines bis sympathy with them, which they conteud Grant has not done yet. I TO THB ASSOCIATED PRESS. Military Procession In Washington. President Johnson and General Grant re viewed to-day, on the grounds south of the Exe cutive Mansion, the 12th Regiment United States Infantry, together with portions of tho 6th Cavalry, and the Veteran Reserve Corps, at present on duty at the Headquarters of the Armies of the United States.
