in Madison square yesterday was regrettable,
inasmch as what the present incumbent

interesting. At the hands of Mr. Evarts,
however, the groat Secretary's memory received

history upon his career.
Yellow Jack.?Thero are signs of an

it is hoped that the disease will soon disappear.
The fall in tho temperature along

a very beneficial influence, as it
gives promise of a speedy recovery to convalescents
and reduces tho probability of
new cases occurring. If, by energetic efforts

cases can be quarantined in a suitable hospital
during the coming week, much maybe
done to arrest the disease, as the weather
will be favorable for that purpose.
Jcdc.b Sinnott's Law.?It has just been
decidod in Ilhodo Island that a man
who permittod the revenuo authorities
to assess his incomo and who paid tho
tax with the added penalty is still liable
for a deficiency if his income was actually
greater than tho assessed sum upon which
he paid the tax. This decision will perhaps
induce Judge Sinnott of tho Marine Court
to revise his opinions on a certain part of
the law, as they were expressed in his recent
letter in regard to Mr. Tilden's income. In
that document Judge Sinnott, in his explanation
of Mr. Tilden's failure to make any
incomo return in certain years, said that tho
law gave the citizen the "option" of making
his own returns or permitting the authorities
to make them. That tho imposition of a
penalty for a failure to do certain nets which
the law commands constituted such omission
an optional line of conduct was an otid theory |
at best, bnt it seems that th United States |
Circuit Court has no faith whatever in that
view of the law. Judge Sinnott himself ,
must confess that it is a very bad ootion
that works both ways. j
Plain Truth About th* Southern States.
It is reported that after tho October elections
a considerable number of prominent
republican speakers are to be sent into the
Southern Stntos to address the people there.
This looks at first sight like an excellent and
even a patriotic movement. It is always useful
to bring the people of the different sections
face to face. When they see each other they
see that neither is as bad as the other
thought Last year Colonel Lamar and
Senator Gordon went up into Now Hampshire
to speak for the democratic party, and
their presence drew large audiences of people
curious to see these famous Southern men? I
just as, no doubt, Mr. Blaine, Mr. Schurz I
and Senator Morton would draw great
crowds in the South to see them.
But, alter all, if we hnd to advise the
republican leaders we Bhould urge them
to leave the Southern States unvisited
during this canvass. Indeed, wo should
go further and tell them that if they were
wise they would give up every Southern
State to the democrats for this election.
The South has been a constant and increasing
embarrassment to the republican party.
The party has acted upon the superstition
that it must somehow mako and keep those
States republican. They seem to it the j
prizo of war, to givo np which is to give [
up tho result of the war. Wo speak
of this ns a superstition, and it is
nothing else. In reality the republican
party would be fnr stronger to-day if it had
had courage four years ago to out adrift the
Southern wing of the party and let the
democrats assume mo responsiDiuty 01 me
political settlement in those States. What
harm could have come to the conntry? Not
the least. The democratic party South is
not composed of monsters and barbarians ;
those Southerh States which have, in spite of
republican struggles and intrigues, become
democratic are almost the only peaceful and
prosperous ones; which proves sufficiently
that the Southern democrat, thrown on his
responsibility, seeks, as he must, to secure
honest and lawful government for his'
State. He cannot help doing sot for
ho owns nearly all the property in
his State and has a larger interest in its
prosperity'than the republican by far. The
credit of democratic Georgia is as good as
that of the federal government. Arkansas
is peaceablo and prosperous under democratic
rule, while South Carolina and Louisiana
are unquiet and wretched under
republican control. Alabama, long thought
to be no better than Louisiana, became quiet
as soon as the democrats gained the ascendancy.
That is to say, the republican rule in tho
Southern States has not been a success, but
the contrary; and the failure has been caused
mainly, if not altogether, by the fact
that the so-called republicans of the
Southern States have been the oonstant
pets of the Northern republican politicians;
they have been narsed and coddled; their
qualities have not been questioned; their
faults and crimeB have been condoned; they
have been bolstered up by extraneous forces,by
federal troops and federal interference of
various kinds. They have not ruled on
their merits, or because they were abler,
stronger, more capable men than their opponents,
but because they were allowed to
call for federal troops when they chose; to
sell their support in Congress and in national
conventions for partisan and dangerous
legislation intended to bolster up their
continually failing influence in their section.
They have played upon the humane
fears and tho ignorance of Northern republicans
until their wretched and selfish misgovernment
in the South has brought the
national republican party into disrepute and
danger of defeat. And, after all, they who
have done this are net republicans in any
true sense. They are merely political adventurers,
whom the honest and real republicans
in their States dislike and fear with
all their hearts.
Whatever efforts the republican party
makes in tho South during the present canvass
will inure solely to the personal
advantage of this class of men. Whatever
success the party may secure
down there by its efforts will be the
crftin nf the Kpllntrora Pnclrnnta fin?nnnrn
and Chamberlains. That is now unavoidable.
Thbso people have the machinery in
their hands; they are the candidates for
office, and they cling to office with a death
grip, lleform in the South lies not in their
further success, but in their utter and disorganizing
defeat. If the republican leaders
of the North understood the Southern situation
those of them who are conscientious
and patriotic men would 6hake off these
Southern barnacles, and those who are not
conscientious would still, for expediency's
sake, drop these adventurers, whose alliance
has been and must continue to bo an embarrassment
to the national party.
Suppose an honest republican speaker
sent into any Southern State, except North
Carolina, and what would ho find ? Unless
ho kept his enrs stuffed with cotton and
avoided all intercourse with men ho could
not help learning that every speech ho made
there was made in support of men no better
than Tweed and his lting ; ho would hear
from tho decent and honest republicans
whom ho would meet that they deplored
nothing so # much as tho success of
the persons for whom ho was appealing;
he would find in Alabama that
tho real republicans of the State havo
been either driven out of tho party or
silenced within it by Spencer and his gang
of federal office-holders. He would find in
Louisiana that honest republicans, though
tin v vote for Haves, refnso utterlv to vote I
for Packard and liis gang. Ho would find in
Mississippi that honest republicans are
abused and vilified by tho thieves who have
the machine there. He would find in South
Carolina, in Florida, neywhere, except in
North Carolina and Virginia, thnt duty to
his country and his party made it impossible
for him to tnko part in tho canvass, and
that if ho spoke conscientiously lie must advise
honest Southern republicans while voting
lor the national ticket to support and
help elect tho democratic local ticket.
Tho policy we suggest will be scouted
by republican partisans; but it is, nevertheless,
the true policy tor tho party. It is the
policy of prudcncu as well as wisdom. In
the Southern tier of States?in South Carolina,
Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisi
ana, Arkansas?there is to-day no republican
party worthy of the alliance of the national
party or in whose fortunes it can take part
without injuring itself If Mr. Hayes is
chosen President he can, if he is wise and
intelligent, as we believe him to be, easily
form a respectable party there ; but he will
have to begin by cutting adrift the so-called
republican leaders in those States in a body
and letting the infected wreck float away.
Why is it not better policy in the repub1
loan laa^nva 4/\ /1/t 4Vt?a wiaw enrl tVino
?'v-uu iu uu tum uun( ouu ?uuo
relieve their chief of an embarrassment?
We can appreciate the
feelings of those who urge that
it would be better for the country, and
better even for the Southern States, that
the republicans should rule in the federal
administration for another four years,
especially with a President who seems to be
| in earnest about reforms, and who is said to
I understand the Southern situation. But if
the condition of republican success in November
is the continued maintenance of
such republican State governments as obtain
in Louisiana and South Carolina, and of
such so-called republican politicians as aim
to rule in other Southern States, then we
should unhesitatingly welcome a democratic
victory; for there is no danger in a demo- !
crntic federal administration so serious as
the continued misrule of the South by demagogues
calling themselves republicans and
having the countenance of the federal administration.
We advise the Northern republican
loaders, therefore, to send no
speakers to the South, unless it be to
Virginia and North Carolina, and to let it be
at once and frankly understood that they
mean to cat loose from the Fackards,
Spencers and Chamberlains.
The War 1b Europe.
The report that Servia has refused to asBent
to an extension of the armistice and
has resumed hostilities is credited to tho
London Standard, which is, in tho peculiar
ciroumstanocs of the case, a doubtful authority
for news of that character. It would not
be unpleasant for tho ministerial party in
England if an event of this kind had really
occurred; and sometimes when a desired
event has not ocoarred it may be invented,
and the Standard, from its sympathidk with
the party in power, would be the likely
medium of a useful fiction. If a clamor as
to Russian intrigue in Servia can be
raised in England it may ofiset
somewhat the popular indignation
over the horrors in Bulgaria. It will bo
well, therefore, to wait for the repetition of
this Btory on other authority. It appears
from Lord Derby's address to a deputation
that the government has no idea of calling
a session of Parliament just now. He hints
slyly at the notion that, as there is no especial
occasion for a session in the practical conduct
of the foreign relations, the Ministry
will not assemble the wisdom of the nation
merely that its adversaries may have a
chance to turn it out Indeed, His Lordship *
assumes the famous position of Faddy Moloney
in the story. "Faddy Moloney," said
his adversary, "come out here till I give you
a good licking." "Indade, then," said Maloney,
"I wouldn't come out for two."
Indian Treaties.
Against their will, in great part, the head
men of the Sioux nation have finally signed
the treaty by which they oblige themselves
to give up the Black Hills?that is, to expatriate
themselves, to leave their homes, to
go away forever from the country in which
the younger generation was born and in
which the old, with a common human attachment
to fumiliar scenes, had hoped to
rear their children. Without exception
they mistrusted our good faith; but some, in
whom amiable natures seemed to exist, were
persuaded against their convictions; some,
with primitive cunning and suspicion,
signed lest others should gain an advantage
at their expense; and many, with
the notion that resistance was useless,
accepted the situation with bravado.
The negotiation has been unusually fruitful
in the crude and vigorous oratory of the
savage, or rather, perhaps, as the case has
attracted especial attention, that oratory has
been more liberally reported than ever bclore.
The comparatively elaborate speech
of Spotted Tail on this occasion, if accepted
as an evidence of the capacity of the untutored
intellect, will place the American
savage foremost in the races of men. If the
men who are capable of such efforts in their
barbarous condition were also capable of
civilization they would have no superiors
anywhere. Finally, these men have signed
that treaty with the plain declaration that
the conditions laid down would induce
them to sign willingly if they could believe
that the conditions would be performed,
but that their past experience induces
them to doubt our promises. And the
worst of this is that they are right, and that
the conditions on which they have signed
will not bo kept as promised. Our faith
with the Indian will be broken in this cuso
as it has been always hitherto, and the reason
is that we cannot keep it. It is the reproach
of the American people that they cannot
make or maintain a government that can
honestly keep their Bimple promise. If wo
agree to give the Indians a cow they will
receive, perhaps, a goat. If wo agree to
give them a wagon *they may got a wheelbarrow
If wo promise them a rifle they
will bo fortunato to get a ramrod. For
every President has many friends, and there
are Secretaries of War and of the Interior,
and Indian agents and contractors without
number, and they must all have a dip out of
the supplies on the way to tho Indian, and
the Indian may have what is left.

The VVashingt^ Dove.?Again that persecuted
innocent, ftenoral Babcock, is to
walk from a court of justice nn acquitted
man. Tho sufo burglary case, like the
whjskey case, despite the vigorous effort of
tho government to convict, falls to the
ground, and Babcock triumphs. This time
so plentiful is the supply of whitewash that
Cook declares his client's character fully vindicated
and his good name unstained, and
Boss Shepherd pronounces him "as white as
a dove." So ends the judicial farce. But
what says tlie army? Is this ubslained

SEPTEMBER 28, 1876.-TR1
An Early Answer A*q??it?d.
They are potting an awkward question to
some of the democratic candidates in Ohio
and Indiana. It concerns Southern war
claims, and our advice to democratic candidates
for Congress, North, South, East or
West, is to make quick and frank reply
whenever this question is put to them, as it
doubtless will be.
There are a good many silly and ignorant
people in the South who imagine that when
the democratic party gets its hands in the
National Treasury it will rain larks down
South, and they will only have to hold their
mouths open to get their stomachs full.
There is no notion down there of payment
for slaves or payment of the Confederate
debt All that nonsense would be
as vigorously opposed South as North.
The slaveholders were but few in number,
and the Confederate debt is not yet due?it
was made payable six months after the
acknowledgment of Confederate independence,
and you cannot sue on a note until
it is past due. But there is a multitude
of claims of a different kind, and a multitude
of claimants who imagine that some
time or other they will get something on
these claims, and they look to the democratic
party for their money. These claims
are of this kind:?The Union armies marched
over a very considerable part of tho Southern
States ; they camped every night ; they
cdt down a tremendous amount of timber ;
they burned a good many thousand miles of
fence ; they quartered themselves in
the least uncomfortable places they
could find, publio and private buildings;
they took food and other supplies
where they could find them, as is the custom
of invading armies. In fact, tbey lived on
the country, as was their proper right, because
the folly of the peoplo had made it for
the time nn enemy's country.
Now a considerable number of those who
were thus forced to entertain and supply our
armies have still the hope that tliey may get
damages out of the government. Of course
they nre mistaken; they will never get a dollar,
because the American people are not a
set of idiots. But it is a question which the
democrats had better get out of the way,
now that it is raised. The fact that at the
last session of Congress some bills suspiciously
Jooking toward tho payment of such
claims were introduced by democrats in the
House, and that they were not rejected but
quietly laid over to the next Ression, gives
the matter a practical importance; and we
advise the democrats to say at once, publicly
and positively, that thoy will not pay a cent.
Sly Peter Cooper*
Those people who imagine Mr. Peter
Cooper, the greenback candidate for the
Presidency, to be an ingenuous and simplehearted
youth who has suffered himself to be
nominated only because he was too kind to
refuse this gratification to his friends among
tho workingmcn, are, we suspect, mistaken
in their man. Mr. Cooper has not spent
many years in active relations to our city
politics for nothing. If he is as public spirited,
as patriotic and as honest as Mr. Lincoln,
he may yet tarn oat to be as astnte a politician
as the great war President. Shrewdness
is not forbidden to the best men ; "be
ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless
as doveB," is the admonition, and if Mr.
Cooper shoald quietly leave his competitors
in the Presidential race to fight out a Kilkenny
cat battle, and should walk into the
White House when they are both demolished,
such of our readers as now laugh at
the suggestion of his superior political
astuteness would, no doubt, cease to laugh.
The republicans in Indiana maliciously
assert that the Cooper movement is engineered
and supported by Governor
Tilden, out of a desire to draw away
votes from the republican side. They
say that Mr. Abram Hewitt is at
the same time Governor Tilden's .political
manipulator and Mr. Cooper's son-in-law,
and that he is managing not only Mr. Tilden's
canvass but that of Mr. Cooper also.
Af - iV.'j. :M VC_
v/i uuurbu wills is uuubuubc. iur, liwper is
managing his own canvass; he knows that a
clear majority of the present House of liepresentativcs
is for unlimited greenbacks; he
does not mean to give himself the trouble of
making a general canvass of the country.
His shrewd policy is to carry one or two
States, fling the election into the House,
and thus make himself President by eliminating
the other candidates. Wo warn the
Tilden and Hayes politicians in time. There
is danger aheAd. Mr. Cooper is not a man to
bo trifled with. But wo give no credit to the
reports that Mr. Hewitt is managing both
Mr. Cooper's and Mr. Tilden's canvass. Mr.
Hewitt has inflrin health, and could not
bear the strain. It is as much as he can do
to conciliate John Kelly and tune up tho
harmonious city democracy.
Ba?ineu Prospects.
It is remarkablo that a general revival of
trado should tako place in tho midst and
heat of a Presidential canvass, when usually,
even in good times, trade suffers and becomes
slack. If this business revival were
felt only in the Eastern cities it might properly
be called one of the effects of the Centennial
Exhibition. But trade is awakening
and confidence reviving sensibly West as
well as East St. Louis journals note a large
increase of country buyers and a generally
active trade. Chicago, Cincinnati and other
Western cities report greater activity in
trade than has been known Binco 1873.
From New Orleans wo hear that the
now cotton crop coming into market
has a marked effect upon
business. New England reports hopeful
efforts toward establishing an export trade.
Wool, wliicli lifts Dcen dun tor a long time,
finds sale again. Tho Pittsburg papers
speak cheerfully, even of tho iron trade,
which has been tho most depressed of all.
There are, it seems, indications of an iinyoved
and improving business in iron.
What is now needed is caution on the part
of manufacturers. If evory one rushes rnshly
into production wo shall have markets
glutted again, renewed stoppages, distress
aiul confusion. The country produces nowadays
more than it can consume. We must
n -establish a foreign trade before wo c.in
work upon a sound basis, and to do that we
need some bad laws changed or repealed
which now bar ns ont from tho markets of
tho world. Our labor-saving machinery on
ables us to produce at such a rate that w?
must sell a surplus abroad or else be made
to feel that American ingenuity, of which
we have always boasted, is a curse to its
A Change of Heart.
We are pleased to see that Mr. John Kolly
has undergone a change of heart. Influenced
by the spirit of harmony and union which
is in the sir he responds to the soft wooings
of the anti-Tammany leaders and opens his
arms and his heart to those with whom he
was only recently at bitter enmity. "Let
dogs delight to bark and bite, for God hath
made them so;" but John Kelly's angry
passions will not hereafter rise, nor will hiB
hands in future tear the eyes of rival politicians.
In his speech at the democratic
ratification meeting on Tuesday evening he
sang the praises of Tilden with almost as
much energy as he used in denounoing the
Governor at St. Louis and Saratoga. "I
know Mr. Tilden's character well," said
Mr. John Kelly, "and I believe him
to be a purely honest man in every
respect." But, John, if you know Tilden's
character so well, and if you believe
him to be an honest man, why did
yon before his nomination publish column
after column in a paper which you control
to prove that he was a railroad grabber, a
dishonest trickster, a political cheat, a fraudulent
pretender in the cause of reform?
Why did you, at St. Louis, set on your dogs
iu uur*. uv aim an an lmpusiur, a lruuu
and an unfit man for the nomination? Why
did you fight against every candidate at Saratoga
who was known to be a friend of this
"purely honest man?" We rejoice if you
have really undergone a change of heart,
and yet these things require an explanation.
You were dishonest then, Mr. Kelly, in denouncing
so vindictively a man you knew to
be "purely honest," or you are dishonest
now, and only beslaver Mr. Tilden with
praise because you intend to betray him at
the polls and desire to cover up your tracks.
Tlie Silver Commlnlon.
The Silver Commission has completed its
number by the selection of the three "experts"
provided for by Congress. The Commissioners
have, of course, opinions of their
own, and bo have the "experts," and they
may be arranged thus:?Senators Jones and
Bogy, Representative Bland and Experts
Dix and Groesbeck are silver men ; Senator
Boutwell and Expert Nourse are greenback
men ; Representative Willard is an inquirer,
not having made up his mind, and Representative
Gibson is a gold man. It will be
seen that silver is very strong in the commission
oad gold very weak. The public
will be surprised, by the way, to learn that
General Dix and Mr. Groesbeck are experts
on the question of the use of silver as cut
rency. The inquiries of the committee will
be prosecuted here, and they have authority
to ask the opinion of other experts, if they
can find any. The question which will
trouble them most will be on what
terms to readmit silver to general
circelation. Some of the members of the
commission are said to believe that it ought
to form the basis of all paper issues, but the
rate or value at which it shall circulate or
be used to guarantee circulation is what
they will be puzzled to determine, unless,
indeed, they accept Mr. Bland's view, that
the actual price of silver in the market has
no more to do with tl^e quantity of silver
which shall go to a dollar than the price
of printing paper has to do with the figures
on a greenback.
Tweed's Rettbw.?A horrible fear disturbs
the rest of some of our authorities. Tweed
has been captured, and is on his way home
on board a United States vessel of war.
There is now no fear of his escape. Re cannot
bribe his keepers and he cannot run
away. He is too fat for a small boat, and besides
is not in condition for a long and strong
pull. Bat he may commit suicide! The
great Boss may actually jump into the
water?to which he was never very partial in
its natural stato?and his avoirdupois may
sink to the bottom of the Atlantic! This
would indeed be a calamity. Think of the
precious secrets that would bo swallowed up
in the waves with our "Twid 1" Reflect on
the legal pickings which would be washed
away with the body of the Boss I Imagine
what a rich feast for attorneys,
jailers and politicians would
go to feed the fishes! Such a loss
must not bo risked ; so Tweed is to be kept
under close confinement on the Franklin.
We scarcely believe that these precautions
are necessary. Twood is too fat, too jolly
and too full of precious socrets to seek a
watery grave. Ha will come back alive, and
then probably wo shall hoar what we shall
hear. .
The wbathen.?Yesterday wo felt the influence
of tho rising barometer that follows
the rain area of Tuesday, in tho strong westerly
winds and decreasing cloudiness.
The slight sprinkle of rain that fell in tho
forenoon only amounted to one-hundredth
of an inch, and was followed by clearing
weather and lower temperature than
that of Tuesday. Tho baromctrio fall
within eight hours at Galveston yesterday
was two-hundredths and at Indianola
four-hundredths of an inch, indicating
an approaching change of weather in
the Southwest. Another decrease of pressure
within tho saino time has taken place in
the northwest, tho barometer falling at Bismarck.
D. T.. from .10.20 inches in the
morning to 29.83 inches in tbo afternoon.
This decrcaso has been also observed to
the eastward as far as the lakes,
and marks the advance of another
aroanf low pressure from that quarter. The
track of this area will bo southeastward from
Dakota and probably ovor the lake region.
A disturbance is also indicated in the Eastern
Onlf, where the pressnro has fallen and
the wind has varied somewhat in direction
and increased in velocity. To-day the
weather in Now York will be clear or partly
cloudy and cool, growing warmer toward
night, with a veoring of the wind to the

a lion and an eagle ; that it has four legs,
wings and a beak ; and certainly the greenback

fortunately, among the objeots with which
our eyes are familiar. 1
The resolutions of the venerable Fetei
Cooper's meeting were introduced by Mr.
George O. Jones, of Albany renown, and
were not well received. The branch of in- lj
dustry in which Mr. Jones is distinguished
is different from mat 01 mo uauy laooror,
and, as no labor plank appeared in the plat
form, some dissatisfaction was expressed by
that element in tho remarkable gathering.
A delegate wanted Mr. Peter Cooper to mak<
work for all who are unemployed as well at
paper money for all who have empty pockets |
but Chairman Jones was after moneyed eoi> I
porntions, railroads, banks and insurance
companies, which pay much better than
daily labor in a legislative session, and sa
the workingmen were snubbed. However,
. Mr. Peter Cooper's banner is to the front,
and in the case of his State ticket there will
be no fiasco. His candidates will stick and
his colors are glued to the mast. 1
