As hid been expected, the customhouse return! are beginning to show that our ex- DorU to foreign countries are decreasing. One of the reasons for oar telling less mer- cbandne abroad in tbat better timet enable ns to coosume more at heme. This reason. however, involves another, which is that when we are in difficulties, and wage are low in convenience, we can export; but when'. we are free from embarrassments and are in tbat state of comfort below which country as rich as ours ought never to fail, we can do but little foreign trade. Where the working men are more intelligent than those ot any other nation, where the inven- tione are superior to those any other country can show, the tact that foreign exports are falling off must appear to every reader a re markable one. But a still more remarkable fact remains. This country, that oan export only when tinder the stress of "hard times, has a carefully arranged system, the express obiect of which is "to protect trade." What is the force for good of a system that not only fail to save us from panics like that of 1873, but that enables ns to export only when pader effects of the distress such occurrences en' tail? The protection awarded to trade fail ing to ward off panic, and failing to preserve our foreign traJe when the time of difficulty passes by, what reflective person can fail to ak whether protection does really protect? They may even be induced, by what is pass- ing at the present tim, to go further and inquire whether protecting trade may not be the main reason why our foreign exports are decreasios? Let us see whether such an effect is possible or probable? grocer is applied to by two men for the job ot building a house he is about to erect. The pay domandsd by each is satis factory, they are both skillful and can be re lied npon to perform their contracts. One of them, however, is a regular customer at the grocer's store, the other is not. Cannot any tradesman tell where the choice would go under these circumstances? Two vessels ar rive at a foreign port. One is .'rom a country that buys there f.ecly; the other from a land that inflicts a penalty npon each of its citi zens, as a gecerul thing, when thry buy from a foreign manufacturer. It is not called a penalty but a tax, but its operation is to make the consumer pay, not a revenue tax, but a sum of money that ho would not have paid but fur buying from a foreign market. A sum of money so exacted is a penalty im posed upon those who do a cer tain thing. The law does not command that such a' thing shall not be done, it only says if you do it you shall pay a penalty for the -deed, as a person guilty of a misdemeanor pays a penalty at the police court. This is the. position, then, of the two vessels; they have merchandise to offer, and ono comes from a land that buys everywhere wheto Us people can .buy cheap-, est the other commonly lays a penalty on its pxople when they buy where they can buy cheapest. The latter vessel ia an American one, and, of coarse, unless the people at whose port it lies are compelled, by oircum stns such as buyiug provisions if they aro in scarcity they will prefer to buy of the other vessel, just as an Ameri can grocer will buy of one that is a customer rather than of one who is not. Is there not a gloomy sort of a joke ia calling a system that produces such a result upon ua American, trading vessel "a system for the proteotion of .American trade?" Many other ways there' are beside that of laying a penalty upon the citiaen who buys where he can buy cheapest, in which proteo tion to trade is an injury and an obstacle to trade, but could more be required than the position of thj merchandise upon an Ameri can ship to rhow the position in which Anier . ican "protection" pluers American manu factures and other productions? The own er of the freight on the American vessel discover, when he tries to trade at a foreiga port, that bis country's "protection" protects the foreign producer by giving him an advantage he otherwise would not possess, while it pats him at a disadvantage he would not, except beouuse of his "protection," labor under. Protection does not only fail to pro tect the American vessel, but it absolutely protects its rival. May not this account, to some extent, for the decline of our exports? When we could sell goods cheaper for the money than others, we could sell; when better times and higher wages make it neces sary tor us to charge as high as the others, then the foreigner neglects .ns that he may buy of thoso who buy of him. THE UBASfiER Is still a power in the land, and he ought to be. Ha represents a class that may be liken ed to the motive power that impels the ma chinery of a great factory, lie furnishes the food and the raw material for the clothing of the world. lie is first and principal among laborers. All labor, all arts, even science itself, exiht by, and for him. With all this power ho has hitherto failed to protect him self. The vrice of his products at his home market represents a sum that is often not more than one-third, sometimes an eighth, cf what it ultimately brings. The difference represents commerce and transportation, and the life of hundreds of thousands of mechan ics, merchants, sailors and railroaders. The granger is a power, indeed he is the greatest power in the land. Of late years be has be gan to find this cut, and has. formed associations tbat, monthly in localities and annually by SUtos, discuss tbe relations ol agriculture to ctmmerce and their reciprocal duties. The result has been a very great mitigation of the abuses from which the farmer used to suffer. But others still remain. Two of these worthy of general attention were taken cognizance of by the recent con vention of grangers of this State which met at Brownsville. The first was the matter of the two pound "dock" on each bale of cotton, and the second was the Riagan bill. Tbe cotton "dock" was referred to the executive committee for consultation with the cotton exchanges of the country, and the latter was -unanimously indorsed because it io a measute that loo In to facilitating the granger in find . ing a maiket for his products. 'Another res , olutioo, offered by Joseph Nelson, to appoint a committee to investigate the advantage to the order in general, and the cotton producers la particular, of a co-operative agency in Memphis, was adopted, and the granges along Ilalcuw river were recommended to take the matter into consideration at their next meeting. This legislation by the grang ers of Tennessee is worthy the careful atten tion of our merchants. It originates in a de sire to. remove evils that aro largely within their power to prevent, and they will perhaps save themselves much annoyance by meeting, at leait half way, tbe class whose interests they should ulwajs be quick to consult. COTTON IK HVKHPOOI Wo bave received the favorite Liverpool Cotton Mr port ot Watts & Co., of February 6th, lrora which we learn the following: The week has developed a better demand, at Liuoer pi ices for American, Egyptian, and otuer kinds, due to a- falling off at American ports. Manchester Las been doing an enor mous bunos, with a good profit to spinners, and an active consumption, perhaps never larger in this country. Mills that had lain idle have resumed work. Egyptian receipts up to this time are rather more than double those of last season. There appears to be no danger of strikes occurring. English spin ners have taken this week about V!b,UUU bales more than their consumption; and we now make them to hold 192,000 bales, .'lheir maximum stock last year did not exceed about 220,000 bales, and fir the four preced ing years the average maximum was about 250,000 bales. We incline to the opinion that spinners year by year are getting more and more in the way of buying futures here a hedge against their contracts; it may thus be, as many suppose, that tbey are now, in one way or another, more largely interest ed in cotton than for some years past. The tock of cotton held by Englirfh spinners we mow estimate at 192.000 bales, against 143,- 000 last year, and 120,000 the year before at same date. The receipts at Bombay from the first of January to date have been 69,000 bales, against 67,000, and the shipments to Karope 54,000 bales, against 37,000 same period last year.

Where, however, several riersons belonging to the same family, and dwelling, in the same house, have to be treated at the same time, then, for the second and each succeeding person, only the halt of those fees respectively is to be charged. Toe same rule is to apply to boarding-schools and similar lnsfrtutiona: also to prisons, vvnen there is a consultation of several physicians about the treatment of a Sick person, in cluding their personal visits, each physician is to receive for tbe first consultation five marks, and three marks for each subsequent similar consultation. - On the occasion of the first visit to the physician's residence for his medical advice, one mark and a half.

Experiments made 'by Schiff support this theory by proving that venous blood is soon fatal to animals if tbe liver is tied, but is not so if the liver is free to act, the poisoning being due to decomposed tissues in the blood. Combustion takes place in the capillaries of the tissues" under the in fluence ot venous force, us tbe blood remains tor a longer time in the capillaries of the tis sues than in any other organ. The blood acta as a reservoir not only ot oxygen, but of food, and, if waste, tbe food taken in to-day is not used to build up tissue to-day, but is taken into . circulation in the blood and the blood forms tissue and regenerates itself from the supply of food so tissue wasted to-day ia carried by the blood to the liver, there de composed into sugar and urea, and to elimi nated perhaps the day after, or even longer. -.

Winnemueca Silver State: "Two citizens of Winnemuoca, of scientific attainments, have for some time past been quietly but indus triously carrying on a series of experiments, with a view of making a cheaper light from super-seated steam that tbat generated by electricity. A laboratory was fitted up and boilers" made expressly for generating tbe steam required in experimenting. Yester day persons passing in the vicinity of where tbe ' experiments were being ''made were startled by an explosion which indicated that some powerful agent had suddenly escaped from its place of confinement by bursting its prison doars. They hsstenened to where the explosion occurred, and found the scientists wet as drowned nils, and the laboratory had the appearance of a building which had been rocked violently by an earthquake. The boiler used in making the experiments had burst, but, fortunately, the scientists escaped ""jury." ' ClBClnaatt and the Heath, Atlanta Phonograph: "A thousand roads like the Cincinnati Southern might be built, striking into tbe very heart of every southern State from Virginia to Texas, and it wouldn't be benefited unless its policy is radically changed. The southevn people have been robbed of their wealth, but happily still pos sess their pride and independence, and are certain not to contribute anything toward enriching a people who have no respect for them except to get their money. The south ern people are willing, and have been for a long time, to forget their past differences of opinion and work to recuperate their lost fortunes by. legitimate trade and honest in dustry.

San Francisco Chronicle: The newspapers heretofore have contained occasional notices of marriages between Chinamen and white women. These unions, so repulsive to mind and sense alike, have been so frequent in the last tew years tbat tbey excite hardly more than u passing comment. (Jalitornia women. however, have not been the only ones who bave tound their affinity in a moon-eyed Mongol. Occasionally some eastern damsel. with more than the usual amouot of cosmo politan proclivities, has placed her little hands into those of her olive-colored lover's, and with it has, as .a rale, abandoned the friends and relations of her own race, Conservative Chinatown has always hailed these alliances with dissatisfaction. . List Uctober the proprieties ot this barbarian-oon teaming element was. exercised to its utmost pitch by the audacity of one Ah Jot', a celes tial of American proclivities. Ah Joe was a new arrival from the east, from which celes tially-benighted region he bad brought with him, besides the profits of a washee-washee enterprise, a maiden lair, but foolish. Ah had kept a wash-house in Cincnnnti.where it may be presumed he starched and frilled the pet ticoats ot BABAH BROWN so well that she determined to secure bim as a husband. Sarah succeeded, and Ah de viated from the habits of his forefathers far enough to marry the girl in true American fashion, soon after the ill-assorted couple came to an francisco. where tbev estab lished themselves in the heart ot Chinatown. opened a restaurant on Facitc alley, which was for several weeks a shining wonder to the Chinatown population. Ah cooked and Sarah waited on the table, and many of the grand mogula of the quarter visited the es tablishment to be waited upon by a white woman. or awhile the enterprising heath en s speculation panned out like a bonanza. Bat the light-colored skin of the American woman soon grew to be an eyesore to the Mongolian habitues, until finally Ah Joe was compelled to close the establishment. The coqple moved away and located on some one ot the numerous alleys ot filthy Chinatown, where their very eaisteora soon became tor- gotten. Yesterday morning a reporter of tbe Chronicle visited Chinatown. Standing in tbe doorway ot one ot the tew American groceries which have maintained a foothold among tbe lioncol hordes by supplying them with liquors, his attention yas directed to an - American woman, pasting down toward Pu pont street. "That is TBX WOMAN WHO MAE EI ED THE CHINAMAN, and kept restaurant on Pacific alley," said the storekeeper. "She is gone to the dogs. When she arrived she was a naat, buxom girl of hardly - twenty, strong and healthy, fend now she is as low a wreck at opium and whisky can produce.?' Then he called to her, aad she, obedient to his summons, en tered tbe estaoii&ect. ' One look upon that face told her story. The eyes protruded from her head, shining with an unnatural luster, her nose was thin and blue, while her mouth was graven with lines of care, sorrow and despair. There was not a vestige of color left in the face. "Are you going to give me some whisky?" was her first querry. The storekeeper set out ia glass, and, with out winking, the woman drained its contents to tbe last drop. "How is your husband t asked tbe re porter. " What in is tbat to you i I guess be is all right He has brought home a turkey, and I am going after some cranberries. Do you suppose we . keep no New-Tear's? Johnny, you owe me another drink." ine anna, nowever. was peremproniy re fused, and Sarah, the wedded wife of Ah Joe, stumbled out into the street to complete her errand alter cranberries. "That woman, said the storekeeper, "has gone tbe road tbey all go, nothing is low enough for them. They become used to their surroundings, aad in a very short time China town and its degradation bas no horrors ior them. Shut off by their own volition from the civilized and decent part of tbe commu nity, inev seek to arowo weir consciences in Oriental vices, and they succeed even better than tbe most wretched Chinaman. 1 11 give Sarah one more year to live."

Hood was yester day rsffld, and immediately after sold by aaction, netting two hundred and sixty-seven dollars - and seventy-two cents by the two processes of disposal. The history of the bale is as follows: The cotton was grown on the plantation of General Joseph Wheeler, near Courtland. Alabama, and picked by his little children, for the purpose for which it was told. The bale first went to Louisville, Kentucky, and there sold for the Ho id fund, tbe buver donating it again for the same object, and shipping it to the St. Louis cot ton exchange to do resold, it arrivea cere some time ago, but no active measures were taken for its disposal until within a tew days since, when Mr. R. H. Nichol, a member of the exchange, started the subscription with seventy-five chances, with two dollars each at the limit, which chances were promptly taken, some of tbese chances bad been gen erously presented to the Hood children, and it was their good fortune to win tbe bale. The affair came off yesterday on the cotton exchange, and succeeding it it was proposed to put tbe bale up at auction sale, which was done, and, starting off with twelve and seven- eigbt cents as tbe hrst bid, and advancing hannsomely therefrom, it was finally knocked down to Air.

Tae KUllBsr or Nelaea. New Albany (Ind.) dispatch to the Cincin nati Gazette: "Your correspondent has read the statement of General Steedman in rela tion to the killing of General William Nel son by General Jeff. C. Davis, at the Gait house, in Louisville, during the war. In tbat statement General Steedman says the pistol with which the shooting was done was handed to General Davis by tbe late Governor Mor ton, of Indiana. Ibe writer hereof is entire ly in form d as to all the details of that unfor tunate a flair. Ue bad the best reasons tor antictDatinsr it the nicht before it occurred Of his own personal krTowledge he can state that Governor Morton did not furnish Gen eral Davis the weapon which sent the leaden messentrer of death through the heart ot General Nelson. Three parties, all now dead the late " Governor Morton, the late -Dr. James Atbon. of Indianap olis, and the late John r. JSorman of ths old New Albany Ledger, as well as the wnier hereof, knew tbat tbe pistol was the property of the late Captain T. Ware Gibson. a resident of Charlestown, Indiana, but who had a law office at Louisville, and was at that time one among the most prominent prac ticing attorneys ot that city. lour corre- 8Londet.t was present at tbe Gait house at the moment of the tragedy. He was not sur prised at its cesurrence. He anticipated it. As General Davis stepped in front of and facing General Nelson, he said to him 'General Nelson, defend yourself. At this General Nelson threw his hand to his hip, under his coat, as in the act lo draw bis pis tol, when General Davis fired. After receiv ing the wound, and in addition to saying 'am a dead man,' General Kelson added. might have expected it. It is not nec.ssary to say that, while Governor Morton regretted tbe killing, he defended the act f General Davis, through whom General Nelson had grossly irsulted not only the governor of the Slate, bat the entire people and soldiery of Indiana. Aboal "Taklnc the Ufflee." Chicago Times: ''Probably no class of men are hurting the Presidential prospects of tbe ex-f resident more than those pretended friends who are continually parroting the declaration that 'if elected he will be snaugu rated.

An etlusive Urant or gan in this city, when atked to give a reason tor its preference ot that citizen above all others, merely reiterates for the hundredth time that, it chosen, Urant will take the office.'' and if objection to his 'taking it' Btioutd be made, his mere word 'would call to his side half a million of veteran soldiers. A zealous 'third-termer, writing to the Times, propounds the Question: 'Why should we elect him ?' meaning the ex-President and savs: 'I answer: It he is elected Presi dent he will be inaugurated.' All over the country the efficious friends of the ex -Presi dent are propounding to themselves the same question in order that they may repeat the same answer, lcey ssem to know ot no other reason why General Grant should be preferred as a candidate to Mr. Blaine, Mr. Washburne, Mr. bhermao, Mr. Ixarheld, or any other citizen ot eminent character or fit ness than that which is expressed or implied in a 'damnable iteration ot the assertion that General Grant, it elected, 'would be inauaa rated." This constantly repeated assertion carries in its meaning an imputation ot cow ardice, poltroonery and pusillanimity to all other eligible candidates than Grant. As Empress's Exsenses.

I read that the expenses of the Em press Marie Foederovna at Cannes were paid for at the rate of five thousand pounds a month. Probably th.s covered the bills of the butcher, baker and grocer.

At ten min utes past twelve o'clock Senator Conkling entered the hall in which the Republican State convention was held, and was received with long-continued applause. He took his seat near the front, at the left of the main aisle. Immediately afterward OKK. "ART HUB CALLED THB CONVENTION TO OKOKH. E. M. Johnson, secretary of the State com mittee, began calling the roll.' The moment aroany county was called, senator f orster moved that the credentials of W. H. Slinger- land and his twelvo associates, and the peti tion of Hamilton Harris and hiB twelve asso ciates, be referred to tbe committee on con tested seats, when appointed. General N. M. Curtis, of St. Lawrence, seconded the motion. Charles R. Spencer, of New York, raised the "point of order tbat no business could be done, the convention not having been organized. The chair decided the point well taken. KB, FORSTKB APPEALED from the decision of the chair and called for the ayes and divs. TLaughter. Lieutenant Gjvernor Hoskins moved to lay the appeal on the table. Carried, with only a tew votes in the negative. The roll-call was then continued Mr. Forster appealed from the decision of the chair and aked for the sense of the con vention. Mr. Spencer again raised the point of or der that all debate was out of order till after an organization was effected, and the chair decided the point of order well taken. Mr. Forster proceeded to speak, but the chair decided that he could not speak in or der except by unanimous consent. Mr. i orster asked unanimous consent. There were objections all over tbe house. ' Mr. Forster insisted that the convention hud tbe right to determine what should be the roll ot the convent on. Mr. Woodford N. Y moved that every body have tho freest right to SAY WHATEVER THET CHOOSE in this convention, the minority to have the fullest right to discussion, and nothing to be dona or attempted wuicu would interfere with a Republican victory m New York next tall. I Great applause. I Senator Wood in insisted that the proper time to discuss these questions of tne regu larity of delegates was whon the committee on contested seats bad made its report. Tbe roli-call was proceeded with until the second district of Kings county was called. Judge Reeves said he did not know - how the delegates whose names were read got on the list, but HS HAS THB ONLY CREDENTIALS in this city to-day for tha second district of Kings county.- The chair said the secretary had tbe credentials of tbe delegates on the Iwt, and tbe names had been put on the roll after the credentials had been passed upon by tbe State committee, and by its order. Jacob Worth said it was at his request in tho State committee that the delegates appearing on the regular list were placed there. The State committee bad evidence that the con vention which nominated the contestants was not regularly called and not regularly held. Cries of "shame," hisses and applause. Mr. Reeves said the original call - authorized him, and no other, to call the convention to order. General Woodford rose to a point of order. The matter should be referred to the com mittee on credentials. He never heard the list of the secretary questioned, as made by order of tbe State committee, except before the committee on contested seats. The chair decided the point well taEen. James Johnson, ot Brooklyn, rose and,J nourishing his cane, denounce.! JAKE WORTH AS A TRAITOR, to the party, saying he killed the Republican nominees last fall, and worked with the Democrats. At this point he was interrupted with hisses and cries of "shame." lie continued to speak, nevertheless, amid great confusion. Alderman Ray, of Brooklyn, insisted that all delegates elected from Kings county should be called by the secretary or chair man. It delegates do not preserve order we shall be compelled to eject them. After much confusion, cries of "put him out," sit down," ec, order was restored and the roll-call proceeded. When Oaeida was culled Ex Senator Lowry presented the cre dentials of fee eontesting delegation, say ing the credentials had been given by the only convention of tbe tint' Oaeida district, regularly held to elect delegates to the State, convention. He had tried to present them to the State committee, bat was told he must present them at the organization of the con vention. Mr. Forster moved that the roll be corrected, and the names upon Mr. Lowry 's credentials be substituted for those now on tbe roll. The chair decided the motion out of order, and ordered the contesting papers referred to the committee on credentials, whea ap pointed. Mr. Clark presented the credentials of the contesting delegation from the secend district of Oneida, which was also referred to the committee. Wben THE ROLL-CALL WAS COMPLETED, Mr. Forster moved that the right to vote of the persons placed on the roll in Albany, h-inos anquneia-t counties be suspended un til a report is made by the committee on con tested seats. Mr. Worth moved to lay the motion on the table. Uarried Mr. Stephens French, of New York, nomi nated for temporary chairman, CHARLES E. SMITH, OF ALBAXY. The nomination was received with applause and made unanimous. As smith was con ducted to the chair he was greeted with great applause. lii allusion in a speech to GRANT AT APPOMATTOX COURTHOUSE, was received with great applause. A hand some banner with Grant s portrait was un furled in front of the Statehouse. Other points in the speech were also enthusiasti cally applauded. Temporary secretaries were then appointed, General Curtis then offered THE FOLLOWING RESOLUTION: Resolved. Tbat tbe.deleeates from the several con gressional alstricts be requested to report to tbls convention tbe names of two delegates selected by them to re ore sent such district in tne National Re publican convention, to pe neia in unioag-o, J une 21, lttSU, in accordance wan tnecau ior sucn con vention, and according to the usage practiced here tofore in the liepublican conventions in this State General Arthur offered the following as a substitute: Remitted. Tbat ths delegates from each congres sional atsinct oe requestea to report ior tne action of tbe convention the names ot two delegates ai.d two alternates to the National convention, and that a committee of one from each Judicial district be appointed by tbe cbalr to report for tbs action of tbe convention tbe names of lour d-lrgates at large and lour alternates to tne matronal convention. MR. FORSTER SAID he would like to understand the difference between the substitute and the original. If he rightly understood it, the substitute is that if the action taken by the district delega tion is not to a majority of the convention satisfactory, that their power of selecting their own delegates can be taken from them If that is not the purpose, he would like to have the gentleman disown it. He believed each district has the right to name its own delegates. My district of Westchester has selected unanimously W. H. Rbertson and J. W. Hasted to represent us at Chicago. WE BELIEVE YOU mean what you say, that one should have Presidential candidate before whom'rebellion dare not raise its horrid head. We believe James G. Blaine is sucb a man. Great and long continued applause. I H. R. Pierson said: We need not go out ol Hew xork to bnd a nominee. I Long con tinued applause.! We can find one in Ohio appl.tusej, but among all these peers there is a name I tola aoove an others. (Applause, and mingled cries ot Conkling and Blaine. I mean that name which stands as a GOD OF BATTLES, U. S. GRANT. fGreat applause. 1 Mr. Forster moved to amend tbe substitute of General Artbar by striking out tbe words, "tor action ot the convention. General Curtis said he would withdraw his resolution if General Arthur would withdraw tbe words quoted. General Arthur said he would not withdraw these words. . It wonld be absurd to present a report of nominations to the convention without giving it the right to act upon them. The chair stated tbat tbe question was on tne amendment to uenerai Arthur s substi tute. Mr. Forster called for the ayes and noes. The chair said, as there had been no rules adopted it would be impossible to call the ayes and noes. MR. FOBSTXR APPEALED from the decision, and the appeal was laid on tne taoie. kHVIU, Mr. Woodin said that it made no differ- ence bow the nams were presentea to the convention. They mast be acted upon by this convention, sod this convention must give the delegates their credentials. If tbe commit tee tampers-with tbe names reported by the district, it will be time lo act. General Arthur said that the committee bad nothing to do with, the delegates. The con vention muBt act. Mr. Forster, under these explanations, withdrew his amendment. - General Curtis said that, if the committee was not to interfere with the names of the delegates he would withdraw his resolution, and General Arthur's - SUBSTITUTE WAS THEM ADOPTED. Mr. T. C. PUtt offrrf d the following: Resolved. Tbat the delegates from tbe several con gressional districts be empowered to nominate and report for the action of tbe convention tbe Presi dential electors for their respective districts, and tbat the SUte committee be empowered to Oil any vac nicies tbat may hereafter occur in tbe electoral ticket, and that tbe committee to be appointed, br the chairman for the purpose' of reporting the names of the delegates at large to the National con vention do also report the names ot two electors at large. Adopted. Committees on credentials, resolutions, del egates, etc , were appointed. ' Kings county objected to Mr. Worth being a member of the committee on credentials, and a delegate suggested the substitution of Roscoe Conkling. Applause and hisses. 1 The chairman then appointed a substitute for Mr. Worth, and a recess was taken. After the Re ecus. When the convention reassembled, Charles E. Smith was made permanent chairman, who expressed thanks for the honor con ferred. The committee on credentials reported that the sitting delegates from the first assembly district, Oaeida county, headed by Hon. Ros coe Conkling, are regular delegates, and en titled to seats.

Fr m his Hartford lecture: " I have thought it better to make very little alluBicn to my own penonal experience in this matter of circumstantial evidence, but I shonld be making too great a sacrifice to my sense of propriety if I did not speak. I speak most warmly and tenderly of one incident of that experience. I have children, whose welfare and honor are very dear to my heart, and a wife whom I regard with not only a tender, but a worshiping affection. That wife knows me thoroughly. She knows not only what is best in me, but all that is weak and human. She knows that I am innocent. When other hearts have quailed, hers has not. ' When the storm broke heaviest she only stood by methecios.r. There was nothing that she woqld cot suffer for me, and nothing that she would not do tor me, except to perjure herself to save me; with all her love sbe would not have done tbat. She loved ire with all her heart, but she feared God more. This .4 wife, so true, so brave, to unwearied in her devo tion, represents to me the devoted wives of other men who, in their innocence, have been accused of crime. Tbese children of mine represent to me" the children of-those inno cent victims of the law and of its errors, and when I see what it would be to me to look from the scaffold npon tho agony ot such a wife and children aa mine, and to have to think, at that last dreadful moment, ot the inheritance of disgrace that I was leaving to them alas! tbe only inheritance 1 can real ize something of the refined torture to which such unfortunate men are subjected, and sometbiog of what the hearts are into which both the sense of wrong and the disgrace have sunk, each intensifying the other. And though the innocence of the dead husband and father may be discovered, no empty parade of honors to bis memory can reca. the agony of his last hours, nor the dark ened years that have passed over his house hold."
