BLAISE SACHBT TO UABFIEID No one of the developmeuta of Blaine's very bad character since he became a candidate for the Presidency of the United States is more startling than that which ire publish to-day and copy from the Boston Herald. It proves him to be a treacherous, self-seeking and tricky of the lowest order, a man whom even the most tender manifest tions of friendship by Garfield could not rean from bis wicked ways. hue the martvred Tresident was yet on his bed of nain. naralvzed by the bullet of Guiteau. Blaine made a dastardly at temut to secure the concurrence of the .rest of the Cabinet in deposing him from ofSce. knowing well that the bare an Bouncement of such a thing would at once accomplish the result the murderer desired when he fired the fatal snot. But he cared nothing for this. He was then as he is now, intent apon his own selfish ends, and he did not care who went or who came so he accomplished thnm lie coveted the office he beld. and he thought that by a super- serviceable effort to install Arthur be lore Garfield died he would win that gen tleman's favor and secure an invitation to retain it But he found Arthur a man of finer feeling than he supposed a gen tleman who, whatever his political ambi tions might be,' was above lending him self to the establishment of an uncon stitutional precedent of usurpation and assisting him to accomplish a piece of treachery without parallel 5n the political history of the country. No doubt this one act of self-seeking treachery and de ceit fixed Blaine's status as a bad, vicious and wholly unreliable man in the esti mation of Arthur, who, whatever his sins, was nover known to turn his back upon a friend. This one act of perfidy is of itself sufficient to prove that Blaine is unworthy the confidence or respect of the people of the United States, and that bo far from electing him President he should be ignoruiuiously consigned - to private life to do penance for his crimes. piioroeitAPBiiva wealth. The llepublican newspapers are horri fied because the Democrat have photo graphed Blaine's private residenoe in Washington. They denounoe suoh con duct as oommunistio as a war on wealth and an effort to array the poor against the rich. This is not the first Presi dential contest in which the private residence of the candidate cut a con spicuous figure. When Harrison was a candidate for the Presidency in 1840 his log-cabin was photographed and circu lated as a campaign document. Almost every whig newspaper was adorned with a log-cabin cut and at Whig meetings there Was paraded on wheels log-cabin huts. All this was done to show t the poor masses that Harrison like them selves lived in a log-cabin, was poor and simple in his habits and too lioncHt to accumulate s fortune, although he bad been in Congress and public office all bis life. Blaine's residence is photographed and circulated for a different purpose, that of induoing me TniuTrjv&ow-TOTrTnom&er or Coo gress with a salary barely sufficient to eupport his family accumulate a fortune nd afford to own such a splendid man sion? It is no crime to be rich, but it is a crime to seoure wealth by dishonest means. If Blaine had made enough money in legitimate pursuits to afford the luxury of building Buch a house as lias beon .photographed it would be none of the business of the public But when a poor man, continuously sent to Wash ington for twenty years to represent the people in Congress at a salary of $5000 a year, is able to construct such a palace ; the people will naturally inquire how he got the money to rear such a structure how did he become a millionaire? Senator Windom was a poor man when ho entered public life. But as a member of Congress and Grant's Cabinet he be came a millionaire, and when he was a candidate thrco years ago for the Senate Lis residence was photographed. It was used as an interrogation point in asking the question how could he become so wealthy on so small a salary in an office which required all h's time and he was re tired into private life. The Fisher lettors shows how Blaine was enabled to build a f 100,000 mansion on a salary of 15000 per annum. It is stated that this house he now rents for 113,000 por annum. In ad dition to this palaco he has a million or so investod in coal mines, railroads and other monoy-making enterprises. The people naturally want to know how he ' got all this money, and when they gaze -upon the pioturo of Blaine's Washing ton residence they will be more anxious to have their little problem; how ean a man on $5000 yearly salary build and furnish such ' a house? solved. In order that Mr. Blaine's extraordinary and inexplicable thrift may be given due roniincncc it is promised that photo graphs of his mansion at the capital shall bo placed in the hnnds of the poople. It is a fact that Blaine's acauisition of irreat wealth during his occupancy of public- olltce on a comparatively low sal ary has done as much to excite doubt as to his honesty among the people as the Mulligan letters. Moreover, the people seo in the Mulligan letters the methods by which Blaiuo has become rich, and when they get the photographs of his magnificsnt residence at Washington the j impression derived from the' Mulligan ' letters and other documents will amount to conviction. For this reason the dis tribution of this picture will tell against him among farmers and struggling work ingtnen, and all other honest people. A UN'S MIIIl CANAL. In a copy of the London Tin, of Au gust 2lt, wn find a long aud exhaustive article explanatory ot the great enter prise to which Capt. Eads has been for some time devoting all his energies. The writer admits that the soheme is a bold one but insists that it is not more re markable for its boldness, as well as for its originality, than for its engineering soundness and for the perfectness with which every detail has been worked out and every possible contingency provided against. It is estimated to eoet not more than 175,000,000, and when completed U accommodate one-quarter more of the tonnage oflhc world than tho Suez canal 'docs. The writer says, that looking at the ship railway projeot from a broad and general point of view, there can be little doubt that it is one fraught with great results. This will bo better rcalizod when it is remembered that the Ameri cin isthmus separates about 100,000,000 of tho most enterprising, industrious and cnligbtcucd pcoplo on tho face of the .earth, inhabiting the North Atlantio coasts of Europe and America, from COG.OOO.OOO who inhabit the Orient and the islands of the Pa cific, it L true that the sailing distances which separate England from India, China and otW Oriental countries hare Leen greatly redttcd by the Sues canal ; Vbut these distances We lmogt insignifi Wnt when compared itfc tho(jo wnich ; 0 ship railway would annihilate Fox uucj, tuo o utdby tb .. . t anJ Palnllittt S'ucz canal between x.uuu- - is about 4500 statute miles, whereas the lailins distance by .tVhip rtfway from London to every port on the 1 acifie, coast of North America will be lessened by nearly twice this great distance, or about S2j0 miles. J. lie ouez canai brought London and Canton about 3500 miles nearer together by sea. The ship railway would save more than three times that distance between the great Ameri can metropolis and every port in British Columbia. The American isthmus and the Cordilleras of North America con-i stituto a narrow but almost impassable barrier to the interchange of the manu factures and productions of 40,000,000 of people in the Mississippi Valley and Atlantio States, not only with, those of 10,000,000 of their countrymen to the west of them, but with the .others on the islands and coasts of the Pacific who are seemingly their nearest neighing. The ship railway would give to these descend ants of the British Isleaa sea route be tween their Atlantic and Pacific porta scarcely 1000 miles longer than the rail way between New York and San Fran cisco, and it would give to the vast valley of the Mississippi a gateway equivalent to the discharge of its mighty river di rectly into the Pacific A work designed to oonfer such great benefit on the com merce of the world should commend it self with especial force to this country, which is carrying more than seventy per cent, of that commerce. With regard to tliA nracticahilitv of the scheme as a whole, there is the undoubted evidence of some of the ablest engineers and ship constructors in this country and England in its favor. During the time the Committee of Commerce of the United States Senate was investigating the merits of the scheme, they took, among other evidence, that of 8ir E. J. Reed, K.C.B..M.P., who test-bed in detail and at considerable length to the practicability of Mr. Eads's project. Be- sidos Sir Edward Reed, Mr. Nathanial Barnaby. C.B., Mr. William John, for merly of Lloyds, but now of the Barrow ShiD-building Company, Mr. John iow lcr.CE., Mr. G. F. Lyster. C.E., and Mr. Leader Williams, C.E., transmitted similar opinions to the committee, which finally reported that the testimony they had obtained conclusively demonstrated the fact that such a railway was entirely practicable, and that loaded vessels could be transported over it with absolute safety and eoonomv. Prof. Llgar, Mr. B. Baker, C.E., and Mr, Martell, of Lloyds, have, moreover, added their testimony in its favor. m ; BLAISE IK DISGRACE. It was thought that the character of James G. Blaine, the Republican candi date for the Presidency, was so tattooed ith corruption that it would be impos sible to find room for another stain. But the full exposure of the Fisher corre spondence, published in the Appeal yesterday, adds a still darker shade, in deed, they are the brush which gives polish, and, as the bootblacks say, "shine" to the blacking. This exposure not only es tablishes the fact that Blaine used his offioial position for making money, but that he has been guilty of deliberate fraud and falsehood. When, with an air of injured innocence, he dramatically read the Fisher letters from his seat in the llouse of Representatives, he was asked bv his friend. Eugene Hale, of Maine, if what he had read comprised 11 hifl letters to Fisher, and he promptly responded: "Every solitary sorap and . m . mi scnmption, as the ehiiareu say. j.ne man Mulligan did his worst.the very worst he could out of the most intimate busi. ness correspondence of my life. The recent revelations show that this asser tion was a palpable falsehood, and that there were other letters still more dam aging. No wonder Blaine threatened suioide; no wonder that be cringed and made pitiful appeals to Mulligan to save himself and family from disgraoe. This last exposure will create a profound sen sation throughout th. country, In pub lishing the letters the New York Vr urld says We place these documents before the IntoUigest reader in sorrow rather thaa iultriuiavb. hay w. h nV.

Harked Decrease In the Number of Sew Cases and Deaths Religious Fro cessions Dispersed. Extraordinary Precautions Against Dyn amite Plots at Skierniwice -. France and China. . Naples, September 17. The cholera epidemic continues to abate. There is a marked decrease in the number of fresh cases and deaths. Great quantities of sulphur are -still burnt with a view to pu rifying the atmosphere. Considerable apprehension is felt lest the epidemic may gain renewed strength fromthe excesses which are likely to attend the feast of San Gennaro, on the 19th instant. The poet Cavalotti arrived here with four squadrons of men from Milan and Tus cany, mostly Garibaldinis, to assist in caring for the sick. The police disperse religious processions, in the efficacy of which the lower classes devoutly be lieved, but shrines are still placed in va rious parts of the town and frequented by throngs of suppliants. Outbreaks of violence on the part of the ignorant rab ble still occur. At Giffona a mob opened the lazaretto and liberated the people who were there for treatment and threw the beds into the streets. The cordon about Spezia has been released. Persons are now allowed to leave by sea after a quarantine of a fortnight. Among the victims of the epidemic here to-day was the Hawaiian Prince, who has been ill for some days past. The police are ordered, if necessary, to forcibly prevent any further religious processions, which, it is officially de clared, are promoted for sordid specula tion. Barracks are being erected on the Campo Marto, in this city, to shelter the most indigent families now in pestilential garrets. The Official IsUetla. Rome, September 17.

Katansky, the Russian officer who narrowly escaped assassination at the hands of a woman, there is no doubt or mystery about the motives of the would-be murderess, and there was no attempt at concealment on her part. It was evidonty a case some what similar to that of Vera Sassulitcb. The girl Mary Kaloojny is a merchant's daughter, barely nineteen, but apparent ly younger, and is a native of the province of Kharkou. She is described as beinp of middle stature, not very gooddooking.with a narrow forehead, dull gray eyes and with the appoarance generally of belonging to an Eastern rather than a Russian race. The correspondent of tho Kovoe Vremya maintains that sho is dark, loots like a Tartar and is extremely ugly, with nar row black eyes, Her great misfortune, it seems, was to be led into the Nihilist cause out of sympathy with or revenge for a brother sentenced to penal servitude in Siberia. For the last two months or more she has suffered all the torments of a polit ical suspect, under the strict supervision of the police. Her brother, Stephen Kaloojny, a midshipman in the Black Sea fleet, was tried.by the Odessa court martial in 1879 and deported to Siberia. He was accused of Participating in the attempt to kill the late Czar.' Qn the 30th of December, 882, the sister, Mary Kaloojny, was arrested in Odessa at the house of the assassin of Col. Soudaikin, the now notorious Degaieff. She was found living with Degaieff as his cook, with the passport of a peasant woman named Zesenko, and in their apartments were discovered a! secret printing press and a quantity of papers .and ciphers. Tha authorities of Odessa sent her to St. Petersburg, where $he was imprisoned in the fortress of St. Peter and St, Paul for ten months, after which she was removed back lo Odessa, and there set at liberty last year under the supervision ot the rolice. Since that time sho has there earneul a miserable existence by giving lessons. On the lDth instant she sailed on Capt. Katansky to renew a former request. The captain offered her a seat and then at down opposite to her, by the side of bis tabie. In the course of conversation Kaloojny thrust ir right hand into her petticoat pocket intending to draw her revolver," but seeing that the captain had noticed her movement, she simply drow out a pocket hand kerchief and placed it on her lap. As soon as she saw that this trick had suc ceeded in disarming the captain's sus picions, she put her hand again into the pocket anj this time pulled out a re volver, loaded In sit barnbers, and fired straight into his face. Fortunately the bullet only grazed his ear, and he atones wrested the weapon from the girl's grasp before she could fire another shot. She was then taken into custody by the as sistants, who rusbd into the room. She ratuwj o answer questions, and only expresiic31mr regret at not haviog'suc cceded in kiiliug Capt. bjatanskv. At the photographer's house, whtire b was taken under a strong escort to have her portrait taken in various positions a precaution now adopted after all polit ical captures she appeared perfectly calm, and d'd noc object to be photo graphed, and only remarked, while smoking the cigarettes politely offered to ber by a yexdarme, that it was a great shame that she was not permitted to en joy tobaoco in the sedutuoo of her r cjl.

Some of the 'Wonders It Incloses The Exhibits of tho Army and Xavy Bt Far tho Most Astonishing- Besnlls of the Yeaasrest of the Setenees. COKBXSPOXDENCI OT THB AFPEaL.1 Philadelphia. September 15. The Science Association has adjourned and its members and the visiting scientists departed to the four quarters, of the globe execrating with one mind in a dozen different languages the hot weather that rendered their stay here so uncom fortable. It seemed a3 though nature. vexed by their impertinent inquiries into her secrets, determined to have no more of it and so made the town "too hot to bold them," for no sooner had they gone than, pretto, change, we are all shiver ingly inquiring the price ot lall over coats or looking up the pawn tickets laid away since last spring. The Electrical Exhibition, bowevtr, flourishes and grows both in attractions and patronage, in spite of the weather. but exhibitors hae been very slow in coming with their exhibits and the clas sification can not be completed nor the catalogue printed until all the exhibits have been entered, which will probably be within a day or so. Since the power that generates the electricity is obtained from steam there are, of course, a good many boilers required to supply the steam and still more engines to run the dyna mos. These boilers are all arranged in the same part ' of the building save the two of the Pennsylvania railroad, which are across the street and have their steam conducted underground into' the building, and these are conducted, as are all the rest, with the general steam supply-pipe, to which all the engines are at tached. As it requires a high rate of Bpeed to generate electricity successfully, all the engines are of a high speed type, and consequently resemble each other so much that to those untaught in such matters the difference is scarcely no ticeable. In the United States Ordoanco De partment are the only foreign engines that I noticed. - They are a double-dynamo electric machine, made by Sautter, Lemonnier & Co., of Paris, and a three cylinder Brotherhood engine, built by t'or.ljrotherhood. ot London. .Near these is tfio"giiiuUuj tagineinthe exhibi tion, namely, the Shipman, measuring, with the boiler, generator and engine, some twelve by eighteen i ashes, generat ing one-horse power, and supplying elec tricity for one arc light. The Brother hood engine runs at the greatest velocity of any in the building, averaging 650 revolutions per minute. Messrs. Schlicher, Slimm & Co., of this city, have a handsome display of Otto silent gas engines, whose silent, regular movements attract a throng of aiini'r'iDg ' visitors, There are three of -these engines on exhibition, the largest of which is a double-cylindered engine, and has an ingenious arrangement ot the governor that throws one cylinder out of actioo when the work is light, cpeaking of governors, there are only two or three of the old-style ball governors to be seen; the majority consisting of a balance- weight hinged upon one of the arms of the fly-wheel and attached to the cam of the eccentric; the movement of the cam changes the movement of the slide-valve, and so regulates the steam supply. The War and Navy Departments make an attractive display, whkh attracts quite a crowd and appears to be the most popular of all the exhibits. There is a complete model of the field telegraph, including the reel to be carried on the Operator s back and the instrument, which can be brought into use instantly wherever the bearer of the reel may be; the wagons especially fitted to carry the telegraph train and all connected with it. In tho Signal Service Department are some of the highest achievements of electrical science, in the electrical self registering barometers, thermometers, anemometers, etc., which, when ad justed, will register the slightest disturb ance automatically, and can bo made to register the impressions taken in an offiee twenty miles distant. Such instrumentSj tl though not yet adopted by the Signal Service, would be of incalculable ad Xjinta.ie, as they would obviate the neces sity of having mn' live bp' such bleak, isolated spots as Mount Washington or Pike's Peak, where the signal service men undergo the most extreme cold, and, besides, these electrical machines would be more aceurate than tho present system of having the indications jotted down every hour. The explosivns in the Navy De partment are, on being explained, very interesting, and, by the way, in the way of labels and cards explaining the uses and construction of the machines the ex hibition is wofully lacking. In this ex hibit is a big torpedo of" a tigar shape with a steam propeller an4 with rudders operated by electricity. It is intended to carry a oharge of 300 pounds of gun cotton and a tank of carbolio acid. It can be exploded either by electricity or by contact as the operator desires, and when loaded costs $5000. The torpedo itself carries two miles of wire which is unwound as it goes and through which pass the currents that stop it or start it, turn it to rort or str.rb,oar4 89 the oper- ator" toucftos ou'o or "tho other of the little knobs in the key-board. Another torpedo that came near being notorious is the Seliridge, one of which, by a pre mature explosion at the naval review at Newport, ;amo near blowing up the President and party. Near these are thesnbrnRrino batteries, hih are irn spheres' containing heavy charges of explosives, and all connected with one key-board from which any num ber can be fired. The same arrangement is used to fire the guns of a man-of-war and is a vast improvement on the method that formerly obtained ot using a match or a friction primer. With iait these and many more methods of destruction ono is glad to turn to something of a peaceable character whose sirn i to preserve lrouj these dangers. It s a heart-shaped bag containing a magnet which is fastened to the end of a long insulated wire, at thg other end of whiph Is an Instrument very much like an ordinary telephone receiver, The detector, as it is called, is thrown overboard and dragged along the bottom while the end to which the receiver is attached is held to the ear. A oonstant buzzing noise is heard, which increases ss the detector approaches the torpedo, and when the torpedo ia tka Wd a diver is sent dowi .to remove it. As tbe at traction of the magnet to the iron in the torpedo is the ranse of the inoreasjd buz zing any body oi iron would hivo the same ctTei.t, and the dctcotor can thus be utilized to discover lost anchors aud chains. vue night last week, while some two two miles from the exhibition, I was 8urprieil to see a white band of light shoot across the sVy, resembling very much the tail of a comet Later I found it was the United States electric search light, designed for use in the navy in lo cating boats eta. ' - . - The most beautiful sight of all the ex hibition is the large central fountain, which at night, when lit up by the thousand lights, looks like a shower of pearls and diamonds. . BLAINE'S PERFIDY To tirafleld While Suffering from the Wounds Inflicted by the Murderer, 'Gnitean He Proposed to Depose His Best Friend that He Sight Continue Himself in the Position of Secretary of State. The Base Ingratitude of a Self-Seeking, Intriguing, Unscrupulous Politi cal Adventurer. The Washington correspondent of the Boston Herald writes "that paper the following story of President Garfield's sickness, which can be readily estab lished by several who were parties to it. It shows that some of Air. Garfield's most intimate acquaintances have long known that Mr. Blaine's claims to hav ing been one of the murdered President's sincerest friends are a pretense, and that in a most trying moment he proved alto gether unfaithful. Mr. Blaine, as is known to all who were about President Garfield after he was shot, was one of the first to make up his mind that he would not live. While vet most of the Cabinet and of the attending friends be lieved he might recover, Mr. Blame be ran Innkine out for his own future. Ac cordingly, in August, while Garfield was still lying at the White House, Blaine one dav asked the different mem bers of the Cabinet to meet him for con sultation at his house on an important matter. When they were assembled he stated to them his opinion that a case of Presidential inability had arisen under the constitution; that the President was seriouslv disabled, and was not likely to recover for a long time, if ever." He proposed and urged, theretore, that the Cabinet should agree with him to summon Vice-President Arthur to Washington, to administer the oath of office to him and install him as Preside it de facto, or actme President. X his as tounding proposition two members of the Cabinet vigorously opposed. They de clared that nothing in the circumstances of the country or in the condition of President Garfield called for such action. They urged that the mere knowledge that tb nnpstion of denosine him had been even considered would, it it should come to Garfield s ears, do more to dis hearten and kill him than the shot of Guiteau. In spite of these and other considerations Mr. Blaine persisted in advocating his scheme. Some strong language was used by those who took the lead in opposition to XSlaine s proposal It was even suggested that it would be' no better than an act oi treachery to the wounded President. Secretary Blaine soon found that he stood alone, and was reluctantly obliged to drop his scheme. There is excellent authority for the statement that he took measures to inform . Vice-President Arthur that be had wished, and proposed la have, him installed as rresi dent, but had been prevented by the opposition of the rest Of the Cabinet. It is also known that at no moment did Mr. Arthur give the slightest lavorablo re- ronse to anv feature ot such a Dronosi tion. This was the first move in Blaine's came to make a friend of Arthur and secure himself a place in Arthur's Cabi net by offering his support and services while Garfield was still livinz and had hopes of recovery. It is also true that for weeks after Mr. Arthur's succession to the Presidency Blaine exhausted all means in his power to retain his position as Secretary ot Mate, in ore than one plain hint was required to make him nn derstand that he could not remain. He was ready to make any promises ot fidel ity to the new chief, but Mr. Arthur would not trust him, but while very civil to him. even to far as to oiler him a for eign ministry, he insisted upon his resig nation trom the Cabinet. The Dancer the Constry Escaped. Chicaeo Times, September 11th: The verity of the published accounts of that extraordinary episode is strongly attested by the character of Mr. Blaine the character of a self-seeking, intriguing and not scrupulous political adventurer and speculator, consumed by a reckless and devouring ambition. During almost a decade he had steadily pursued two aims, both selfish: i irst, to acquire vast wealth: second, to get the 'residency. Failing to reach the latter nn 1S7G. he again failed in 1SS0, seeing the prize pass to a man whose superior talents incited his envy and dislike. In an evil moment the lucky rival committed the greatest blunder of his life by rewarding James G. Blaine for his support in the canvass with the post of Chief Minister, thus placine at the head ot his Cabinet a man who (to repeat the words of Mr. Pound) invaded the administration with de mands ot personal vengeance so virulent as to inflame the spirit of assassination." The country did not realize, however, the dangerous lengths tow men the reck less spirit of Blaine mieht en until after Garfield's death. The revelations of his astounding diplomacy in Peru and Mex ico, of his mysterious relations to a co lossal and fraudulent guano speculation called the Peruvian CompanVj of bis suspicious and unexplained friendship tor the brutal dictator ot Guatemala, Gen. Barrios these, among other cir cumstances, pointed directly to the con clusion that in the reckless projects ot the scheming would-be ruler he had not lost sight ot the pinguid gams ot the daring speculator. In truth, the wholo course ot Blaine in the government of Garfield was that of a man who was posing as a ruler with a "spirited policy" and an eye single to "the main chance" of advancing his private fortune and per sonal ambition. That he would ship wreck Garfield's administration within two years was a prediction, ventured by the 2'imci upon his entering it. The evidence is now ample to warrant the conviction that, had Garfield lived, one year would have sufficed for Blaine to accomplish his political breakdown, at probably great cost to the nation. The scheme to depose Garfield was di rectly in the ine ot Blaine's immoral character and reckless programmo. He had begun a "spirited foroign policy;" had initiated an astounding scheme of bossing and bullying all the feebler States on this hemisphere ; had a choice collection of "irons in the fire," some with expected political glory in them, others with "millions in them." He an ticipated the death of Garfield and "took time by the forelock" with a single eye to his own future. In his looking-glass ho beheld the reflection of the man who ihe did not doubt) had made Garfield 'resident, and whom Garfield on that account had made Premier. If, antici pating the course of events, he should render a like service to Arthur, could the latter do less than continue him in the poet where his crenius for mischief and appetite for gain could find opportunity to let their light shine among the nations? The character and sound judgment of Mr. Arthur were not then known to Blaine rfbr hardly to anybody, and there is scarcely any basis for doubt that Blaine cherished the notion that if he could keep his place under Arthur he could be himself the bigger man than I. residsnt. "There is excellent authorifv Tor the statement tht he'took measure's to in form 'Mr. Arthur that' be bad wished and proposed to have him installed in the t'residcnoy before Uarucld s death, but had been prevented by the opposi tion of his associates. Whether he real ly did so or not, the performance would not have been more indecent than the scheme of deposition to which the al leged information related. Ths rstound ing projeot cot ony iuvitcd.'but war ranted the strong language which his as sociates are said to have ued in combat ing it. It was a programmo of treachery, not only against nis chief, the President, who had rewarded his services in tie election with tile highest seat in the Cabinet, but also against the law. The disposition of Garfield in anticipation of his deaih from a gun-shot wound would have made a precedent for the disposition of a future President in anticipation of his death from a broken leg or sprained ankle, though all the world should know that tho real motive of tho disposition was no oth.e; thaa that "demand of per sonal vengeance so virulent as to in flame the spirit of assacsicatiou" which nerved the arm of Guiteau. But. if a President may be Reposed, as Mr. Blaine iSuinea in the case of Garfield, by a vote of his Cabinet Ministers, upon the asserted opinion of one of thnm that he is going to die, the assassin ceases to be an essential functionary to the spoils sys tem, since a stout-fisted ruffian with a bludgeon fitted to produoe some severe contusions would serve just as well.
