The Morton crowd is very blc to
night, and some of theme have already
begun to mnutter reminiscences of Andy I
Johnson, Blalne's gang is also sour,
and Bob Ingersoll Is reported as saying
that if Hayes went back on the men
who oounted hInt in, he (Ingersoll) will
devote the whole of next year to making
Shim wish he hadn't.
The outlook as a whole is that Hayes
will go further than even Mathews or
Foster have exlpeeted in the direction of
non-partisanshipl. But there is no tell
ing how long he may withstand the
pressure being brought to bear upon
him from the other side.

An exciting scene occurred in the Hall
of the House just after the Democratic
caucus had adjourned, which, under
other circumstances, might have led to
Stragic results. Aggravated by some
conservative remarks which Lamar had
made, Douglass of Virginia, went up
close to where Lamar was sitting in his
seat and shaking his list at him, de
nounced him as a traitor to his party, a
man who had sold out in order to secure
his title to a scat in the Senate. Lamar,
observing the condition in which
Douglass was, paid no attention to him,
merely remarking that he was not in a.
condition to be responsible for his
words. Friends inlterfered, and Mr.
D0oglass was let away; but he s.on
found his way back and agai:n com
menced abusing L:;nar. Tue latter be
came exasperated alnd was about to in
Slict summary puntiilsonont when Mr.
Oaulfield and others persuadel him to
retire from the hall aI d the matter end

evidently beyond possibility (f repair, with the
irlbeti:'lty and timidity mannifonstol by the Northll
ern and Eastern nmanagers In whlls haidls the
fate of the party was so absfolutely confided
upon the nolniatlon of Mr. Tilden. lhe coolost,
wisest headls among the iollthleri D)emocrats say
1b, will never again be possible to hold the white
vote solid for the Dltqioerattin national ticlket un

Now it is tlhe pet purpose of thei ni w tralnagters,
whomlt the prsselnt result brings to io fi out in
the i.pubtliea. party, to purti oP a policy that will
destroy the cololr tlan, d1ilttlttI the interotts of tlhe
white people of thu HMouth from those of the
Northerni IJtnocracy, andi begin a system of re
eonstruotion, not of the touthern nMato govern
nrents, buit of touthern pohtictal seiti nulnt. 'To
tliis ol I amn aundantly sati,hiled all the ener
glen of mnalag mernt hi the ilepublican party, and
all the power of its adiinistrativo patroniage,
will be directted for the next four years. The
IRepublican managers toll me thlloy xpect to lose
somina strongth in the North ; that thty havo dis
counted certain diHfTlootious from thl it ranks iof
peop'o ill the North and Weo t, who, having voted
for Hayes, are not. quito satisfled with the way
the vote has boeen cllounted, antl who, as the man
agel l ptll it, are absurd enouttgh to prefer honest
defeat rather than success by the mnethods which
have toien employed to st-cuiro it.
The chicanery by which Mr. Hayes has boon
o unted in is expetoed by the illpublcan mana
gers to exasp,orate the Democracy of Ohio, lodi
anti, Now Jersey, New York, Connecticut and
New Ilampshiro into more perfect solidity than
before, and to disgust a good many Republicans
into symyatby with their late adversaries, which
sympathy may or may not result in active co-op
eration, acoording as the charactIr of the Hayes
administration tends to mitigate or intensify the
disrepute attending its origin. The first consid
erable test upon this point will come next fall in
and the Ohio managers of both parties are al
ready looking forward to that event with anxiety.
The Republioan managers seem inclined to look
the worst possabilities of the situation in the face.
Realizing that the HIIyes administration will
come into power with something of the stigma
that is borne upon the brow of a bastard, they
propose to "live it down," to us- their own
phrase, by developilng
in their administration in inverse ratio to the
foulness of the midwifery whereby it is nahered
into being. This is i comprehensive experiment,
but you know human nature is peculiar, and
people in the average are wont to place a pecu
liarly exaggerated valuation upon good works
which proceed unexpectedly from tainted sources.
The old rule, that the prostitute cannot reform,
will not work here; for that the American people
have a weakness for fraud anyhow, being mostly
'on that lay" themselves, and unless the fruits
of fraud are shamelessly abused, there is a very
good-natured indifference to
This then is in brief and in aggregate the hop3
of the Republican managers: To do the best
they can to hold their own in the North and
West and bid high for gains in the "Solid South."
It will not be long before we can begin to form
some adequate idea of tha outcome. Whatever
may be the fallscies and delusions of this pro
gramme, it at least has the merit of being a posi

Democratic party can lay claim to at this mo

in favor of fighting to the death sand dying in the

The sngar house on the plantation known as
Linwood tlace, belonging to Capt. L. . Sawyer,
and situated about twenty miles below the eiiy,
on the left bank, was burned to the grounri on
Thursday night. The extent of the iose is tfrty
thousand dollars, but it is not known in wha't
company, or for what amount the property was
insured. The cause of the fire is a mystery, as
the sugar house hatl been closed up for about
six months.
