The Union Leaguc Club, " the hcnrt of the

out in clear, forcible au.l unmistakahlc tcnus last
night. ita denuncintior| of the plot of tjovernor
David B. Hill to steal the I-egislaturo, and uttered
its protest against tlie outrageoits methods af tlie
Democratie tools of the head of tlie State Govcrn
nient. The memliers gathercd not only as Bepab
licams devoted to the oause and pririeiplms of
their party, but also aud more e.peoialiy us
eitizens of the State of New-York, with tlie in
teresf- of tlMI great Empire ( omnionwealth at
heart, and with a pure and high-uiindcd regard for
the saoredness ol the ballot. They voted for tho
stirrtng, lucid and eomprelieTasive a-ldress and reso
lutions offered by ex-Jttdge Nonh Davis with en
thit.inam, and applauded lotnlly the speeches whieh
scored the foprehengiblc conduct of tlio ____?_?

of a Nation whieh aeoount- tlie hallot-box of
suprciue authority, they united to deeltir- their
vigon.us and uno_imlitir<l difiapproviil of tlie plot to
nullify the dc< i_ion of the 8688?I as made on
election day.
Those who eame to the mretin_ with only a
YH.ue and general idea of Governor Hill's ne
f.iri< <?_ endcavor to st._l the I> gislature went
away with a perfcet understanding of tlie ii?
legal and unjust _tep_ tak<-n in furtherancc
of tlie plot. Tln- ridietiloiu. pre___._ of the Demo

went home in utter asf.iniMlmi._t at realiziug

The club met la awaken lha people of tlie
city and State to the gruvity of tlie siruation, to
.tir up a pubiie Hentituent, nmotig good citi/ons,
irrespectiv* of party, agaiiu-t the Deoiocrati",
plotters. To aecompliish thla object, an addreaa
was issued to the people of the Kmpire State, iv
hean-ing the faets of the sevcrul eootcaBB for aeatl
in the Assembly and Senate, and resoluti0881 were
udopted expresi-ing tlie .-lub's scntimrvits con
cerning the outrage whieh ?_. bt?B all but por|>o
trated hy Governor Hill and his minions. The
gathering included a riumlrer of tliose who occupy
leading ptoces in the soeial, hiiainess aud pro
fe_8ional circles of the city, but their 8B888M8
sipnifie.l more than individual protcr-t- afrainM
the attempted theft. The assembly was in every
sense of the word a representative one, and the
stand it took was, on tMa aecount, weighty and
important. far more than 8 meio count
ing of the number present would indi
cato1. jVn influontial body of the metropolis
of the State spoke to th? people throiighout the
great Commonwealth. and the importance of the
organiiation will gain its worde due atlention and
thoughtful considefation nmong the pcrsons to
whom tlry were .iddreened.
