Blaine's alleged corruption in the matter of certain rail roid transactions is still under investi gation by the bcuss eub-committef, no doubt with a view to nnoarthing ail tCe facts of the cases cited. In the Fort Smith csee, it will be remembered by our readers that Mr. Biiine himself stopped tbo further examination oJ Poker Jack M'Clur, of Arkansa?, jut as thatj worthy wa3 about to tell how CudweH, cf Bjston, came Into possts alon of the binds in diepute, claiming that the committee had no right to go any further, his skirts being cleared. A dsy or two's meditation on that prop osition ha? confirmed tha committee that Mr. Elaine was too hasty, and that it is their dacy to continue to Investi gate that matter further, and perhaps the other allegations wherein Mr. Blaine is mixed with a transfer of Kansas Pa cific bonds amounting to twenty-fonr thousand dollar, since it has baen re vived again with a great show of evi dence by Mr. Kiddle, father-in-law of tho dead-and-gone Knowlton, who first told the etory. Mr. Riddle, greatly out raged at the position his dead relative was pieced in by Mr. Blaine, who we believe applied all soit3 of objection able epithets to him, comes to the vindi cation of tho deceased and maintains, as we find his statement in the New York World, that Knowlton never gave pnblic circulation to the story of Blaine's appearance in Stewart's tfficeand never dsnied the truth of it. Ho always as serted among the few to whom he spoke in conflder.ee on the subject that he saw Blaine go Into Stewart's private room, that Stewait came out to get him to wit ne?8 the transfer of twenty-four thou sand dollars worth of Kansas Pacifis bonds, and that in a fiw minutes after Stewart's return to his room Blaine "nt away. This story ho only told to his most intimate friends, and he con sidered it an important secret and a tort of burden on his mind. Gibson, of (he Sun, ovei board him discussing the mat ter with General Boynton, and pub lished a garbled account of the transaction with so many miutakes tbtit Knowlton was ablo to deny its truth. For Blaine's Bake he contented tt discredit the whole mat ter, and Mr. Riddle claims that it Wf s tacitly understood between Biiine and Knowlton that, although the former had been at Stewart's dike on the occa sion In question, yet the latter should sfljet to believe that he had mistaken General Thomas E;ving, jr., for the speaker. It Is clear from the evidence adduced by Mr. Riddle, of which " tJio'lMter from Gsneral Boynton is an oxamplr, that Knowlton, whatever he 111 iy have sMd or done publicly to the contrary, always firmly balieved that -Blaine.was closeted with 8tewart at the time he signed the transfer of the bonds. "We are therefore left to infer either that be did not know the speaker from hia cousin, cr that Stewart lied to save a friend. In order to show that Mr. BHIne possibly wai con nected with the Kmsas Pacific road Mr. Riddle makes a number of extracts from the-testimony in a case between J. B. Siewatt and the eastern division of the Union Pacific, in which the interest of JohnE. Blaino is discriminated from - thnt of "James Blaine," ' Blaine," and "James Lane." These extracts present a very ugly esse, and it is clear that they couttltute the most damaging evi dence yet produced against the ex speaker. It sdds special point to them - that Riddle, in company with General GarfltiJ, submitted the subject to Blaine some lime ago for explanation, and lis ignored il altogether when making his statements in the house concerning the scandals in circulation against him. It is also, without doubt, tho matter to which Medill, of the Chicago Tribune, ' an3 Smith, of the Cincinnati Gazette, called his attention more than a month aso without receiving an answer to their inquiries. Comparing it with thesolemn disclaimer of Mr. Blaine upon a ques tion of 1 rivilege before the house, there remains much to be reconciled that Is damaging to the ex-speaker much that, whethor ho be a candidate for tho Presi dency or not, ho should clear np. TILDEX IJT MI HISMPPI. It is evident that Governor Tildcn will Tecslve the vote of Mississippi in the 8. Louis convention. Prominent -politicians from our Eister State assure us that the D'mocracy is gradually drifting into the opinion that the hon est and incorruptible statesman of New York should be, and will be, nominated. The Batesville (Miss.) Blade, publishes tho Appeal's editorial favoring the nomination of Til 'ien, and says: xne Memphis appeal announces Samuel J. Tilden, of New York, as its choice for the Presidency, and uiges his nomination by the St. Louis convention. tiovernor Tilden ha? made a record which places him In advance of any ether man in tho Union as a reformer and political economist. If the country is prepsred for a return to sound, con stitutional government, Tilden is tho best man to lead It back to first prind- juea; dud we tear mat tne juemocratic party will not have the courage to nom inate a man whose principles are so well -known and whose bold attacks upon corrupt officials has atrayed against hlni all the corruptionists of the country. The moral courage displayed by Gov ernor Tilden in hia attack upon the canal ring and William M. Tweed, whose po litical ascendency in New York was ad mitted bv all ivaities. was the first act in the great drsma which has revealed to 'he world the titter corruption of the Brpuhllcan patty. Emboldened by his uocew, others who had not the courage to niase the first assault upon a corrupt administration, came to the front and save their support to tne noou w rk so lobly icauEurated bv Tilden, t whom esre indebted for pes! reforms and our present hope for a new and better era in ur country's History. The Journal, an excellent paper, pub lished at Tupelo, Misiholppi, says: The Memphis Appeal, in a well written srticle cf two columns, presents tne name of batnuel j. Tiiuen, or ftew York, for President. Tilden st ck is no doubt rising, and it is more than nroba ble that the convection will offer him to the American people ts the man who. above all others, combines the qualities Qbccesfcry to matte a i&llmul and ear less chief magistrate In these latter days of ringp, official conuptiona and impe rialism. Other Mississippi papers have ex pressed similar views favorable to the nomination of Governor Tilden. From all we see and hear, we belicvj Missis sippi will c.-s", a eolid vote for the New York statesman, believing him to be the ablest and.ceitalnly tho most available min. The Democratic party of the south hai sreat admiration for Hen dricks, Thurman and Bayard, but It will prefer the nominstlon of Tilden on the ground th".t he ia the only man who can carry New York and enough north ern St&tes to elect him. That Governor Tilden is how the foremost candidate on the Democratic side Is conceded in quar ters where two weeks ago it was claimed be had but little chance. The bitter fiiht made upon him by the Republi cans plainly shows their fear that he will be the nominee. The developments at Washington, the constant cry of the Republicans that the reduction of ex penses will cripple the government, strengthen the chances of a man who, like Tilden, uses the whole power of his administration to reduce the expenses of the government, and thus lighten the burdens of the people in support of thi government. Tbo people do not belieye that it is necessary to keep the expenses of the government up to the war-figures, when all kinds of business men are curtailing expanses in every possible way. The Republicans are, in their opposition to reduction, inadveit ently, it is true, turning the attention of the public to the nomination cf Mr. Tildep, and proving that it will be op portune. We can acsure the readers of the Appeal that the stock of Gover nor Tilden ss the Democratic candidate for President is on the rise in all direc tions. The more that i3 known of him, and his splendid record canvassed, the more numerous are his admirerj. Tho south is deeply interested in the next election for President. She is tired of serving as a football, and wants peas?, To secure this she cares nothing about men, anu believing that, to elect a Democrat, we njust carry New York, and that Governor Tilden can do so with a sweeping majority, he ia mo it earnestly supported by tho southern people. The Richmond (Va.) Whig supports Governor Tilden for this reason, and says: "If we have indi cated a desire to see Tilden nominated, it is not because we care specially for the man. It is tho cause wj desire to see triumph, and not the individual. It is tho vote of New York and ether northern Democratic State", essential to success, that we wish to make secure by tho nomination of a ticket that even our enemies concede would be invincible in thesa States. AVi want not the favor ite of the little handful of JDomoorate, however fcithfu , in the hopelessly Re publican States of the west, urless he ba the choice of the Democratic Slates of th9 north and east. If we succeed it must be by securing the fifty electoral vote3 of New York, Connecticut and New Jersey. This can be done beyond a per adventure by conceding to the Democ racy of tbesa State3 the candidate most a:ceptable to them. To refuse to do so would be an act of supreme folly. It wi'l be giving up the substance for a shadow, a certainty of Democratic States for the vague hope of winning those politically opposed to us." THE SUADAT flCESTIOIf The mass-meeting held at Philadel pbia on Siturdsy night last, for the pur pose of advocating and urging the opening of the Centennial exposition to the pjople on Sunday, was an influen tial nnd in every sense popular gather ing. Among the speakers wrere Rev. Dr. Furness, who occupied the chair; Rev. Henry Bellows, of New York; Colonel John W. Forney, of the Press; Hon. George W.BIddle and Mr. Charles N. Pine. Dr. Furness, on taking the chair, gave two reasons why tho exhibi tlon should be open on Sunday; firs', for the sake of the thousands of laboring men who are ablo only on that day to visit the grounds; and, second, tho ex hlbition should bq open on Sunday for the sako of a duo observance of that day. Said he: We are here in a genuine evangelical orthodox assembly. We are backed in our actions by the words and acts of Martin Luther and John Calvin. Luth er considered Sunday the day when we should have the most liberty, and said that he would dance and feast upon it to prevent any encroaenment on that liber ty all were entitled to. Calvin had a contempt for what wascalled"thesanc tity of the Sabbath." He considered it a day of recreation and rest, and every Bunuay anernoon piayea oowies 1 R6V. Dr. Bellows, of New York, the president of the sanitary commission during the war, delivered an eloquent and impassioned speech. In the course of it be said: It is not in the interest of licentious ne;s nor an abuse of religion to have the exhibition open on Sunday. On the contrary, it is in the interest of morality anu religion, ana ne thought it abcu time to loo3en the shackles some would place on the conscier;c3. He found that the country looked as beautiful on Sun day as any other day; flowers did not cease to grow on that day, nor did he ever eee a bird that sang less merrily man it am during tne week. As a rro tcetnnt opposed to the tenets of the Catholic church, he yet honored it for providing rational enjoyment 011 every uay 01 ttie week for lis followers. Tne Ijonl should reign every day, not one particular day. There are bodies of christians all over tbo world who hold different opinions as to what day should be observed es ono of rest and if we re spected every creed and sect by stopping work and foreeoiDc pleasure on its set day, the whole wordings of tho world would be stopped. The other gentlemen named then fol lowed with speeches, each one a con vincing argument in favor of Sunday as a day for the masses, a day to be freed from the killing Puritanism which has bo far interfered between the people and tho exposition, and made it an almost exclusive and aristocratic af fair. A series of resolutions followed, which were carried unanimously, the following embodying the spirit and pur port: Setolvedx That in the opinion of this meeting the opening of the Centennial exhibition during its continuance on the first dsy of lt:e wcet-, either free to all comers or at a reduced rate, f n In the opinion tfthoe in oontiol shall be deemed advbable, will promo'e the cause of religion and or morality, as well a the bappine-e of our fallow-men, by providing a place where all tnay con template on this dsy the handiwoikof the Creator, as well ss the achievements of human genius, industry and skill, and will fuither remove the temptation to pass it either In unprofitable Id'encss or in degrading vlco. That this resolution, or the spscches by Rev. Dr. Bellows and RjV. Dr. Fur nes3, will hive any weicht with the commissioners, we doubt very much. Under the diminatlon of cant and hy pocrisy, and obsequiously deferential to idecs rather than principles, it is too much to hope that the poplo can have any favors at their handp. Peihaps, however, when a month or more has passed, and they sag that cant and hy pocrisy do not pay, they may relent, and look about them for an excuse to do that which the people now demand, and have a right (o expect at tboir hands. WiiERE is the silver change? About f.;ur art! a quarter millions of it has been issued, but the psople like it so much that they keep it, for it does net circu late. A Washington dispatch of Sun day give3 the following statement as to the localities where the silver has gone: Washington. .S ITO.OOOlBuflalo .- $59 000 New York 1 i75.0uoi5-in Kranclsco 3,000 KoRton 315,000 1 Chicago . 277.0J0 Philadelphia. 313XXY) St. Lonls 178 UK) Paltlraore axi.OOOl Plttabnrs 111,000 Charleston .. i '.OlOl New Orleans. lii.oool Total .5121,000 Cincinnati 2J0,tO0 The abovo ere tne actual disburse ments up to and incJulirg the date of the latest reports to the department. In addition thereto are the following esti mates from places from which complete transactions, including those of Friday, could not have been received by mail in time for ye?tuuaj'sieport to the sscre tary : Boston fan Francisco Chicago .... ... 8U Lonls Charleston. S73.00; New Orleans S15 000 2,000, Cincinnati UO.000 30,000' Buffalo 5,000 30.000' 10 0001 Total 5197,000 San Francisco never took kindly to paper, and although tossnd silver coin there costs in New York J1 per cent premium, and the additional cost of 1 per cent, for remittance, making a cott of 22 psr cent, on it, yet a profit is made. Notwithstanding silver is at a discount in California, yet the scarcity of small change makes the new silver coins worth, we are told, about 95 in gold. As they can be obtained here at par In gieenbacke, or at E8 gold, it will bo seen that it is possible t? pay 1 per cent, premium for them hero and yet make a largo profit by shipping them to San Francisco. We heard cf S50.C00 so shipped yesterday; assuming that they cost, with premium paid, 99, or $45,000 gold, and could be sold in San Francisco at 95, or at $47,500 gold, the profits would bo $2750 gold, less transportation charges. In Canada the reverse is the case, for there the people call American silver "a nuisance," and take it only at a large discount. In the West ladles and South America, however, about the same profits can be made in ship ping silver coin as at San Fiancisco, The New York Times, of Saturday, said "Considerable amounts or silver were bought up for shipments toCallfornia to day, the operation being attended with considerable profit." With a profit making on tbo exportation of silver coin, and the people who get it being so fond cf it that they keep it out of cir culatlon, it is not surprising that it is at a premium, notwithstanding its being at a lower market value than greenback?, and notwithstanding tho surly ornsti ness of our Canadian neighbors. Satur day's New York Post stated: "The tieasury again changed its orders re specting silver payments; yesterday it stopped paying on currency checks and drafts; to-day it resumed; limiting the amount which the holder of any check or dralt can get to 400. This did net affect the premium on small change. which was as high as 3 per cent, and in places os low as 1J per cent., closing at per cent" Another paper sayB: "A considerable proportion of the silver paid cut in large amounts for Ic gal-tenders and drafts is held out of cir culation for sale at a premium. Silver coin is also being exported to the West Indies. Altogether, but little progress in the effort to get the coins into use is psrceptible." The New York Journal oj Commerce observes: "It appasrs to be the desire of the department to make tho total cmount of subsidiary coin which waa in tho treasury on the pa?s age of the silver bill go as far around as possible, and as there are many appli cants for It the portion allotted to each must necessarily be small. Doubtless the officers of the city banks, if they will promise to make a judicious usa of It not sending it to the country, where it will scarcely be appreciated, or letting it get into the hands of the brokers, who may be disposed to ship it out of the country for the use of foreigners will be able to procure pnouch to show to their Sfeatomers. Until the flow of the treasury becomes un Interrupted and not subject to contra dictory orders, peeple will hoard the sil ver in the hope of squeezing out a frac tion of profit from it either now or at Bome future time. By the existing regulations of the treasury the distribu tion is made but Iittlo faster than the mints are coining the tokens, and there weresaid to be about twenty million dollars on hand when the silver bill be came a law. If it were possible to dis tribute the whole ot this sum as rapidly as it could bo sent out of the treasury vaults, the foreign demand would be supplied, and our own people would have enough and to spare." The London Economist, in a lengtby and able review of the causes inducing the recent bloody riota at Barbadoes. concludes that "the history of the affair shows in the first place how absolutely indispensable in a colonial government are the qualities of discretion and simple directness of character, and how dan- trproils are van It v. harmless nnnnol. In for Eeif-effttremont. But it seems to point also to another conclusion, which has been illustrated both in the case of Jamaica and of several of tho southern Slate3 the impossibility of working any sort of representative constitution in such communities as the West it mdia ;o races I island?, in which there are tw dwelling side by elds, separated by a vast gulf in all that affects man's moral and social well-being, hating cash other persistently with various colorings of contempt and of vengeance in their ha treds, and with the dividing lines of rich and poor, of upper and lower classes coinciding with those of race differences and of the traditions of slavery. In Ja maica tbo experiment of free govern ment was acknowledged to be a failure; and a despotism, a "crown colony of tho strict type," was established with al most universal consent. It seems prob able that if tbe black population of the Wet Indie once become thoroughly excited, the jollcy &drp:el In Jams'ci must be carrfd farther, and Birbodoes, with a colored pipnlnUon of ore hun dred and fi ty thctisand and only sixteen thousard ruling whites, hts no claim ti escspo the common lot.'
