On the 8th of October election day Uloliard
Taylor, aired thirty-eight, and residing at No.
W0 Wilder street, was brutally beaten by ft
party of men t Fifth and Reed streets. He
lingered on until the olli Inst., when his Inju
ries proved fatal. Coroner Daniels bold an
Inquest this noon. Joseph Godman was ar
rested as being one of the rioters. Ho was
present. The following; is the evidence:
Kanmel McMlllman sworn Reside at No. 1340 South
Sixth strest; ws present at this row: It occurred
about 1 o'clock, at Fifth and Reed streets; I saw a man
who is said to bedeceased -and another man, whom
I recognize as Thomas Marsh, being beaten; the for
mer wan down: a large crowd was about him: If it
bad not been lor a woman who Interfered the man
would have been killed: I saw one man striking at
Taylor: I was told he used Iron knucklen.
Caroline Creager Reside at No. 6' Owen street;
knew this man Taylor; I saw a man named Worth
Ington run bleeding Into a house; and after the tight
was tlirnush I saw a man with a tube lu the corner of
bis nose stamp on Taylor when he was down; there
was a large crowd around: I knew who I saw there by
appearance; did not serf the defendant there; whiu
'I aylor got up one ot the men struck bim violently lu
tbe fare; they stamped on him all over his body.
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.
Dr, E. B. Shaplelgh testified to his having made a
post mortem examination on the body of Richard
Taylor at the Hospital; tnat death ensued from lu
ftammation aud mortlfiotlon of the abdomeu; be
sides these there were many other bruises and abra
sions on tbe body.
Other witnesses were examined. All had seen a
man whom some kuew and others believed to be
Taylor knocked down and stamped upon. 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,
"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.

when be called to Nolen, telling him that his

the arm and side of Gallagher. Nolen then took
Gallagher's cart and drove it to a brick yard,
where he left It. He then ran off", and un to this
morning had not been captured.

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.

tSPFCUL DESPATCHES TO f VKNIN0 TELEGRAPH.
Washington, Oct. 17.
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.
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
