For Tennessee and the Ohio valley rising,
possibly followed by falling barometer, with
v triable, shfiing to warmer southern winds,
ond partly cloudy weather.
Thk last we beard from Carrie, who mur
dered the actor IVrter, wantonly and in cold

Mb. IIcgu J. Jkwett, president of the
Erie railroad com pan v, sails for Europe on
BiUrday, in the hope that the voyage will
improve bis declining health. Toe doctors
say that Mr. Jowett' system is infected with
malaria, and that he mobt have a change cf
air. Another Djiuocr-itio candidate oat of
the way.
Evkv the New Yoik Herald lies about the
south occa-ricDiHy, and thus panders to the
ignorance and prejudices of the north. In a
recent issue it hd a short article headed
Lynch Lw in Virginia," ia which we find
tbesotwo sentences: "Lynching in Virginia,
and, in fact, in nearly all the southern
States, is ia the regular order of things.
" Midnight murdur by masked miscreants is
" the rule iivn that way; n legal and or
" detly baaptn istbs xwefHwr.'-- -; ".
Thk Iaaepftndeut ltspuhlicaos of New
York have UsusJ an address saying the un
dersigned American citizens of German de
scent, adbereuta of the Iipublican party,
would consider the nomination of General
Grant as a candidate for the Presidency as an
iuj.jry deeply atl'ecting tba welfare of the
country as well as lha Republican patty.
Which is all very well, but they don't pledge
themselves not to vote for hi in if he is nomi
nated, as L"g.in nay be will be, at Chicago.
Ukneral Tom Ochbltkbk, of Texas, is a
too atdent Oratit wan. 11a ullows Lia im
agiaat.'oa to run not and bis toDgae to tam
per with the truth. Ho attached bisieslf to
the suit of General Grant at Galveston and
remained with him-until he reached Mem
phis. Hro he left him and tcoi his depart
ure for Waahing'on, where be fell in with
the Herald' i correspondent. This gentleman
be proceeded to ,-Btuff" with his peculiar
view, which he a' lege J were facts, and con
vinced the (no-eager newspaper man that
the southwest bad fallen down and wa wor
shiping the third-termer, off-ring him a solid
vote wherewith to defeat all bid opponents
Democratic as well as p. 'publican and walk
into the White Douse ngain. Gohelfiee no
doubt believed all this, lint it is as far from
th truth as olhf.r views of this notorious
Texas ranger. The south is solid fcr the
Ddmocratui party and will vota solidly for
it nominee.
Thk two Democratic conventions of New
Tork have met, transacted business, and ad
journed. Tha leadci's cmposinz them and
the citiz?ns tU y represent ara farther apart
than ever. Tilden did not send
the promised letter; he has not retired
from the canvass, fas is sf ill a candidate for
the Presidency. lie stl'l prefers lo feed his
insatiable ambition at the expense of party
unity and succem. i determined to
have his wav. or nrevent nsrtr tn'u in oh id the
nation at large, as he did last year iu Nw
York. This is to be deplored. We had
bop6d that where so nuny kcasiblo and ex
perienced men were concerned a ep:rit of
- ; "qiliation would prevail, and that nme
.mmoddtion of the difficulties and dif
' fexencssbelween Tammany and Tilden would
have been reached. Bat they have failed. -TLe
great State of New York asaln seU the bad
example of diviaiaa and enmity, and will
gain, as in li76, ro np to the
convention asking fo: seati for two sets
of delegates. Bit we hop that batter
coonoiU will prevail at Cincinnati, that
there at It an' there will be peace,
nnity and concsrdj that Mr. Killy
as well as Mr. Tildea will be mide
ti learn that the day for personal
rule jn this country has parsed and that the
people, thmr saety aud their weirare alone
are to be legislated and provided for by the
National Democratic convention.
It is now believed in New York that Mr.
Tilden has determined to thiow all bis
strength in the Cincinnati convention forilr.
Justice Field, lie has recently made ex
haustive inquiry into the lite and record of
the judge, and has satisfied himself that he,
better than any other of the proposed candi-
dutpn. can cro belora the peoule certain of
victory. Judge Field is now sixty-four years
of age, having been born in 1816, at Had
dam. Connecticut. Ho graduated Irom W.l-
hauis college in JS37, ar.d then studied law
in New York, where ho was srme time m
oartnerahip with his brother. Da id Pudley
fc'inld. In VMS he went t ) Euiope, where he
passed a year. On his return in 1819 be
went to Cilitorcia, where be has resided
ever sip'co. He was cne of th pioneer
settlers of the thriving town of Alarjs
ville and was the Srst alca'de, holding that
office nutil the judiciary was organix d. In
1350 he was elected to the legislarure, and
while a meinbjr of that body ho compiled
several very itntortant h'iil works, which
have given a tone to California legislation
and bavo ever nine remained a standard
authority. In 1857 Mr Field was ehc'.ed to
the supreme cojrt ot the State for six years,
and in September, ISM, ho became chiet Jus
tice. In l&tkl FreBidect Lincoln appointed
bim as us-ocinte justice of the supreme court
of the Uuitcd States, acd, U3 pcb, be deliv
ered the opinion of tho court in the well
known test-oath cases. It is claimed f r Mr.
Field, by those who are acquainted with his
political views, that, whilo eminent as a law
yer and jurit, and holding aloof from polit
ical parties, he is a Deu.o:rat, both from con
viction aaJ prircioli.
IV k giva a large amount cf oar space this
morning to a sermon delivered last Sunday at
the Brooklyn Tabernacle, by R-v. T. DeWitt
Talmage. It i devoted t J the south to our

and niaoy sympathy that must carry con
viction to eve-y reader, as it UiJ.no djubt, to

prevented the uual crush at the entrance to

Democratic principles in order to tempt suc
cess; tbat was their attitude in nominating
Lucius Kbinson. Applause. Hecommented
oi wbat be called the elevation of Hayes to
tbe Presidency by frand. It he who in fact was
elected had chosen to lea'd an American re
volt, bad said a word, a million armed men
would have sprang forward to establish the
result. The name of Tildn was received
with great applause, mingled with hisses,
and renewed wbea the speakur stated that
I'll den forbade the assertion of his own ritrht
to tho Presidency out of greater regard for
the pece of his countiy; be was not in

mingled ctixrs and hite?s, Thesa proceed
ings were interrupted by tbe appearance of a
committee from the rivnl convention asking
for a conference to consider means of secur
ing harmony in the party and a united dele
gEtion to tbe Cincinnati convention. The
committee was it firmed that tbe matter
odd bo placed before the C3nvention when
the call of the roll was disposed of.
At twenty minutes to ten o'clock tbe'eon
ve ition was called to order, and awaited the
report of the committee on contested seats.
The committee reported in favor of all the
sitting members as placed on the roll by the
roll by the State committee, and the previous
question on the adoption of the report was
ordered.
Mr. Brown, of O'sego, denounced as a
gross outrage any action which should de
prive the minority of a chance to report, an t
asked that his protest against this infamy be
entered. Applause.
The committee's report was adjp'ed with
a few dissents, amid epplause and hisses.
Jjbn G. acob was chosen permanent
chairman.
A resolution that the delegates frora each
congressional district select a member of the
State comnjittee and send the names to the

Mr. Morris in, from the committee on reso

KKLLY AID HI8 CROWD.
Sybaccsk, April 20. The special train
containing tbe New York and Brooklyn dele
Kates to the Kelly (or anti-Tilden) State con
vention arrived at half-past eight o'clock,
and tbe delegates marched to headquarters,
which they filled to cvei flowing.
The State committee met and made np a
router of tbe convention and chose temporary
tffiiers. Mr. Moak, the chairman of this
committee, was absent, attending the mur
der trial of Jesse Billing.
The convention assembled in Shakespeare's
hall, vfhero the organization formed last
year, and Ex Lieutenant Governor Dorshei
mer ws named for temporary chairman. He
waiked to the platform, attended by John
Kelly and Erastua Corning-, of Albany, and
cheers were given for each. Mr. Dorsheimer
said that it was tbe duty of every Democrat
in Syracuse to do all in his power to bring
about a union and consolidation of tbe party,
to tbe end that someDamocrat might be named
ia the National convention who would secure
tbe united support of the Democracy of New
York. L-t thos who wish to keep the party
disunited take the responsibility, it would not
be upon him, and ha did not believe it would
be upon those present. It there was wisdom
enough to take the long-tried statesman, and
if there was wisdom enough to recommend
the nomination cf Horatio Seymour wild
cbc-erf that would unite tbe party and it
would move forward with the resistless cur
rent cf the waves.
After tbe usual committees had been ap
pointed Mr. Patker offered a preamble and
resolution, which were adopted, providing
for a committee to confer with a committee
of tbe other convention, so as to secure a
united delegation irom the State to Cincin
nati. A communication from the Democratic
union orgao:zition, also a resolution of the
Tammtny convection asking for a confer
ence, were reierrcd by the chair to the com
mittee on resolutions.
Alter a protracted discussion a resolution
was adopted that the delegat s from the
several c icre; sional districts select one del
egate from each congressional district to con
stitute a corr.oai'tee on credentials, to which
committee shall be referred all questions
of contested seats.
Several congressional district delegations
were then authorized by resolution to name
one delegate from each district to form a
delegation to the National convention at
Cincinnati. The convention then took a re
cess. The convention reassemb'ed at balf-paat
four. Committees on permanent organization
and resolutions were appointed. The follow
ing was adopted:
Ectf.lvdl, That the delegates from each congres
sional district ba requested to report the names ot
two delegates and two alternates, selected by them,
to represent such district In the National Democrat
ic oouveutloQ at Cincinnati.
Mr. Haskms, from the committee on con
ference appointed to wait on tho other con
vention with the proposition for a nnion,
stared brttfly their action.
John Ktlly was called for persistently,
and when he roee to approach the platform
he was hailed with applause, and then three
cheers were given. He made a brief speech
protesting against the nomination of Tilden,
saying that fcuch a nomination would be a
disgrace to the party and country.
Mr. Amtzi J. Parker was then chosen per
manent cbair jion, and upon taking tbe chair
was received with long continued applause.
He proceeded to address tho convention, and
at the conclusion of his remarks the following
t solutions were adopted:
' Kefolved. Tbat Ihq N&tlcual Democracy, north and
south, east aud west, are one and Indivisible in their
devotion to popular rights and Institutions, as guar
anteed by the constitution and tbelr adherence to
the time honored principles and nsages of the
fathers of the republic
Kesoiv&l, That In view of the present attitude and
tendencies of tbe Republican leaders It Is the duty
of tne D-niccracy everywhere to unite and put forth
eery bonorab e effort toeffecta change In tbe gen
eral administration.
Resolmd, That, in view of the Importance ot
seleclui candidates fur President and Vice-President
who are heat tilted for ibe highest offic-s in tba
nation ubd can best unite tbe bemoctailofiarty and
swore vlct' t, In the coining campaign, the delega
tion from New Yotlt tn tbe National Democratic e. ri
ven! Ion ahull be uupledged.
Xrxoluetl, Tbat, in view of the powerful opposition
to Samuel J. Tilden In this and ether tates, h s
nomination fcr Ibe President y wauld be fatal to the
ocrr.lli cusa
hamlv d. That the Dmosracy of Nw Tork, hav

eaders will rosuit 'o a vi. tory which the nation wt'l
be gratllied for and of nolcn we sua 1 have reason to
be proud. - - . " . - - -
Aocompanyirg tho resolutions is an address
of the Democracy of New York to the Dem
ocrats of tbe iittite and nation, which, among
other things, says:
We protest against Ihe degradation of the Demo
cratic organization Into a macblne run for the In
terest of one man and bis personal following. Til
danism la personallsm.whlca Is false to Democracy
and dangeroua to the republic. We protest" agaiust

and tbe sc&ndls brought by the cipher dispatches;
because nuuureus ol thousands or Democrat can

would sound the knell ot Democratic defeat.
The following resolution was adopted:

congressional dl-triot, and that tbe commit ee on

The Greek question, be says, baa entered on

Regarding the religious decrees the circular

Washington special to the New York
Times: "While tbe exodus committee was
organised in the hope tbat its investigations
would tend to a discontinuance ot the colored
emigration from the south, the feeling of the
negroes has grown strorger and stronger in
faver of going. There is fresh and trust
worthy information from Beeral cf the
southern titatea sroinar' o show tbat the
exodus is asenming vast proportion, and
that it is better organized than ever. The
tide is about to set in this soring as never
before, not in the direction of Kansas so much
as toward New Mexico, Colorado and Ari
zona. In New Mexico especially steps are
being taken to make en asylum for about one
hundred thoo jind of the betier and more in
ddsthous ot the colored citizens. This num
ber is already organized to go. They are in
colonies or bands, into which .none can enter
but such as have the means to defray travel
ing expenses and boy homesteads. At a sig
nal these bands will all move overland, after
the fashion of tba ancient Israelite?, into the
promised Canaan ot the southwest. 1 bat this
is not a dream or vision is shown by the fact
that a comnanv has been formed in New
York, compesed of business men on business
principles, with the view of buying np large
tracts of suitable land to be subdivided into
small farms and sold to the colored emigrants
ea terms tbat wilt save to them a large
amount, compared with what tbev would
have to pay for the same land- bought in Email
lots. Ex Governor Newell, of New Jersey, is
president of this company. Already steps
are being taken to nave agents ot n s com
pany in all tbe southern butes, with a view
to the practical working of the plan."

A NIGHT BRAWL
Clasen the Besaloa af the Banae ef
Etepreaentatlvea Yesterday.
Washington, April 20. The house met
at half-past seven and immediately went into
committee of the whole, with' Mr. Stevenson
in tbe chair, cn tbe private calendar, t or
over three hours the committee remained in
session, passing some dozen pension bills. At
times the discussion became lively, the first
ilt of the evening being between Messrs.
Da La Matyr and Ryan Pa . the Becond be
tween Messrs. Thomas and (Joffroth, and the
third between Messrs. Taylor and Bragg.
JUr. Bragg, in opposing the pension bill.
took occasion to criticise the action of the
committee on invalid pensions, and intimated
tbat th- ir action was somewhat lttlaenced by
the fact that the congressional elections were
coming on.
Mr. Taylor declared that so much of the
gentleman's remarks as referred to him were
so far from the truth as heaven was from
hell.
Mr. Bregg That sort of bluster is of no
earthly account with me.
JUr. laylor said that the whole course of the
gentleman for two or three weeks bad been
to cast infamous reflections on the commit
tee on invalid pensions, and it seemed as if
the gentleman were in collusion with the
pension office.
Mr. Bragg said he had cast no reflection
on any report which the gentleman bad
made, but when tbe reports came np he in
tended to show them up.
Mr. Taylor said tbat if the gentleman could
afford to delay the passage of these honest
pensions it was all right. Ha t l'avlori. for
one, would not go to his people and tell them
he bad been voting against honest claims.
Applauee 1 IF the gentleman would only
pay attention to the big appropriations which
were pissed every session, and leave alone
the poor soldiers wbo went hobbliog about
on cratches, he would do his duty better.

American Watches.
The American watch company, of Wal-
tharjj, received last week an order t'rem tbe
British government for three hundred and
seventy two watches, intended for the ase of
conductors, engineers, utation-mesters' and
other employes of 'tbe' state railroads of
India. This is the third large order received
by the company from the same source, and,
like the former ones, was obtained in public
competition with foreign Manufacturers. The
London Jxvjeler and Metal-Worker, in its
issue of 'January 15th, observes, in reference
to this order "The contract for watches, to
be uied by the officials on the India state

American watch company. Ibis is tbe third

ceived this distinction, which ia no a b.arren

tbat werj manufacturers her to show more
enterprise (hej wold be abe to, compeletid

Persons of sedentary habits often suffer
with kidney affections. Irritating medicines
and oveiwork are fruitful causes of diseases
ef the kidneys. Sufferers from this weaken
ing and dangerous disease would maintain
the strength of the digestive organs and im
prove the quality of the blood by a persistent
use of Simmons liver regulator, taken three
times a day. This will restore tbe kidneys to
tbeir wonted health and vigor.
"I have been troubled with liver com'

Townsend Has a Mysteri
ous Letter.
West Point, April 20. In the Whit
taker case this morning Philio Ryan,
a saloon-keeper at Highland Falls, was
questioned closely in regarl to the ru
mors alleged to be started by him that
three cadets were in his saloon drinking tne
night of the outrage, and that one said tbat
Whittaker would be fixed that night. He
positively denied saying any such thing or
anything by which such interpretatioa could
be placed npon his remarks, and that no one
was in bia saloon that night after ten o'clock;
that no United States or army officers ever
visit his saloon.and he knows of no cadet beirg
at tbe falls in three weeks; if a man appears
at his saloon in citizen's clothes he never
takes any pains to ascertain if he is a cadet.
He was making no reservation whatever
throngh fear of loss of patronage. He said
a man named Hogan first told him of the af
fair. He relied mainly upon We6t Point tor
support in the winter time.
J. F. Pierce, hack-driver, was sworn, the
recorder having been informed by let'er that
be could prove that there had been a conver
sation that night in Ryan's saloon among the
cadets. Pierce strongly denied tbe sta e
ment. He bad first heard such a report from
a Mrs. Brannigao, the wife of a cavalryman,
who said Mrs. Cox told her tbat a milkman
named Haight told her that Ryan had eaid
tbat there was such a conversation.
A number of cadets testified to the quiet of
tbe barracks oa the night of the outrage. Q
Each cadet is being questioned as follows:
First Were you in yonr room on the night
of Monday, April 8, 1880, continuously from
the taps tiil reveille?
Second Was your room-mate in the room
on that night, continuously trim tbe taps till
reveille t
Third Do you know or have vou been told
of any cadet wbo was absent from bis room
between those bouts ot tbat night r
Fourth Di you suspect any cadet of hav
ing been so absent?
Fifth Do you know or have you been told
of anyone who wes engaged in the late as
sault on Cadet Whittaker?
Sixth Do you know or have you been told
who wrote or sent the anonymous note lately
received by Cadet Whittaker ?
Seventh Do you know or have you heard
of any threat or any intimation that any per
son would do violence toward or practice in
dignities upon Whittaker?
Mr. Burnett was called, and swore tbat he
and another cadet nctaed Breckinridge were
in Ryan's saloon at Highland Falls on
Thanksgiving day, and Ryan knew them to
be cadets of tbe first class; Ryan was in the
saloon. He swore that he never obtained any
citizen's clothing of Ryan, and that Ryan
knew bim by name. The persons named
were Cadets Hewitt ami Ho! ton, and other
cadets also visited Ryan's.
ibis evidence was in flat contradiction to
Ryan's in ono important particular at least.
Mr. lowtsnd stated to the court that be
had recsived a letter, the contents of which
he deemed it not proper yet to te made
kcown, but which might necessitate the ar
rest of Burnett.
Cad its Hosan and Hewitt testified that
tbey left tho barracks several times with cit
z?n s clotbicg cn under tbe eadet clothing.
and went to Ryan's acd tcek ctf their cadet
clothes, and, leaving them at Ryan's, would
