Jay one week. The probabilities are (1)
that there will bo ? aplritod conlent over
the organisation o! the Home; (2) that
the iub?idj wing o( the Democracy
will nupport Goode, ol Virginia,or Blackburn,
of Kentucky, ami the antiaubaidy
wing Sam. Kandall.of Philadelphia; (3)
that there wil 1 he a warm oonte? over the
nropond inrreue of the army; <> warm,
in fact, tbattheaeaaion will probably con*
limit' on until the regular meetinc In December.
i'rom what wn bear we iuilga
that Col. Hen. Wilson will rote for Kan* I j

Martin ami Ken mi. I
As will be H?-n by our dlrf|utche*, the r
Hun. Alexander 11. Stephens, of Georgia, |
U having a good time among the New c
Yorker*. People at the North have gen- I
erally a great deal of kind feeling towards 1
Mr. Stephens, having always regarded ?
him us an unwilling wcessionut. He (!

Hard for President Hayes, and Ii!h de- 8
termination to give bis administration a ?
candid rupport. To a reporter of the Vi
New York H'orW who interviewed him r
on the question of Mr. Hayes title to the r
Presidency ho expressed himself as foU ?
lows: r
"The (juestions presented by the Insf o
election were of vital importance. We v
believed we had carried the election, and t
1 Hippos tholtenublicnns thought that "
they had carried it. It hud to be settled v
hy a court or by war. It was a serious i
cruia, and for a time I feared war. Hut l
the luinmission wna appointed mid the r
qtiMlion Jeft to it. It was the highest b
I* >111t eter conntiluted in thix country, v
ami I believe it was a perfectly constitu- t
tioml body. They decided the question. k
Of course 1 wa* diaapjiointtd, ad we all r
we.'c in the Democratic party, at the re- 1
unit, but I look on Mr. Hayeks title a* a
rei arljudieata, and therefore better tlun I
the title of any preceding 1'resident, b
They all took their Beats on vrima facie o
r-ue-f, but tbiii lias been nettled in the t
highest court ever known in thin coun- t
try." * f

were on the lit of January, 1877, GG,G36 1
"lunatics, idiot*, and peroons of unsound '

inquisition 252 lunatics who reside in f,
charge of their committee', making the t,
total "00,883; taking the 00,030 un- n
tier the public charge. They were ^
made up of 30,1G6 males and ,s
38,471 females; 7,597 were private _
patients, of whom 4,087 were males ,
and 3,510 females, and the balance, 59,030,
were pauper patients. Of these 20,078 ij
were males anil 32,901 lemales. It will J
be seen that among the private lunatic-*
the male.-* preponderate, and the female* j
among (In* pauper 1 unation. ^

During eighteen ycari, 1850 to 1876, the .
average recoveries has been 31.11 tier

rather more than one to two. The

Ir has transpired that tho llihle does j1
| not always work good deeds. The wife
ol Rev. Win. 1'. Brooks, of St. Louis,
while fumbling among the Bible*, tracts
ami livum books that he had packed in a _
lug in rcudiness for a tour as an evanI
tplist, found a bundle of letters addressed
to him. She observed that the language
was affectionate, and that the hand wri- .
ling was that of Sister McDonald, an ac- "
live member of her husband's church. 0
A lew hours later Sister McDonald called. 8
Sister Brooks, with the fury of a tigress, Jj
hook the letters in her face, and accused ]
her of trying to alienate the aflections of 1
her husb&nd. Sinter McDonald denied the
authorship of the letters, but wifo seired 11
* cowhide which she had procured for 0
I the purjH)i?e ami laid it on the shoulders r
and nrim of Sister McDonald with all *
the forcti she could enmtnand. Tho asI
failed lister was not disposed to take her r
puniihment with patience, mid she (ought 0
hack with fnta and finger nails. D was ,,
^denperate combat, ending in a victory kfor
Mistress Brooks so tar as the fight f
***concerned; but, sad to relate tho letters,
were found to have been written by a
Mrs. 15. to her husband previous to mar- r
riajje. Of course, Sister McDonald was *
*K*iu received into the confidence of the
Utuily. St. Jjouia is a strange place, anyhow.

had a force of men employed, day and
night, doing everything that could be
done to avert the disaster. A forco of

Tweed ou llio Ntnnd Again. (
1 New York, October 6.?The examination
of William M. Tweed was resumed,
to-day, before the Committee of Aldermen,
and he said, in the Senate the King .
paid members for toting for the bill in '
- Committeo of the Whole, and allowed
them to vote as the; pleated on the final ,
passage. The names were not recorded
when voting in Committee of the Whole,
but were recorded on the flnal vote. At
torney General FaircliId having stated,
during the week, that Tweed in bis so* J
i- called confession to bim, had not men- 11
It tioned having subsidized the Albany Ar
a qua and Journal, or mentioned the name of (
r Edward 1*. A pgar. Assistant Secretary of
I, Slate, Tweed replied that be had not spe- (
ii uiaiijr nivftiiiuiivii were parties, qui ne
u offered to become a witness in an/ suit in
jr which he might be called, and to give j,
f evidence of numbers of fratide upon the
b city and State Treasuries which he did 0
not then recollect. He would, however, 0
substantiate all hejhad Raid. ^
r He can produco checks and lettern in j,
j support ol hi? amrtionM. One letter con- n
. gratulated Tweed on Inn personal victo- ?
j ries and the succens ol hi* party, which
^ letter he said would be a good thing for ]
, the Journal |>eople next year. Regarding w
l the explanation of E. I?. Apgar concern- .}<
. ing bin relations with Tweed, the witness V(
hail read a letter from Apgar, in 1870, Jji
staling that he wan in debt for board, j0
clothes, &c., and uked Tweed to add to gj
> many former favors by procuring him ci
1 payment ol his salaiy,so that he (Apgar) l.
, could liquidate his clothes and board
ohm. tj.
Other letters were also read by Tweed,
i showing that Wm.Caisidy, of t&e Argut, j(
I hud nought appointments from him and U]
i that Hastings had expressed very warm vj
sentiments. Tweed repeated his state- u,
5 ment that he paid $05,000 to the Board of cc
s Aldermen of this city to pass the resolu- gj
I tion authorizing the appropriation by the . .
i city of $1,500,000 for the bridge. The 0,
i money wuh paid and witness got his share et
from Henry C. Murphy. |(|
i This wes in 1870, and Connolly also w
i got his percentage; and witness knew that B(
Kingsley, who had supervising control of 8_
the bridge, had an interest in the quarries (*
which were to furnish the stone. He knew, a,
t because he wanted that himself, but found C|
Kingsley was too strong for htm. ^

, Major General Dakin, who was Captain co
, of the Team, indignantly denies the M
charge, and declarew that every one of 7t
the American Team would teatify to the K
falsehood of the utory. ''Any man," t?aid co
he, "who received a dollar from the man- M
ngement of Gilmore'a Garden was a fraud. &
The American Team anked for no money, ft
Got none, and authorized noboJy to col- ca

Mr. Bruce, who, in the international Qi

now turn* out that the money wan paid; }?
notto the Tenm, but for and in behalf of pi

officer of that organization paya that on co
two occasions before, the Association had K
made arrangement with the proprietor |?a

cred just right that the Rifle Association, j[
which had paid the men'* expenses,
nhould contribute largely to swelling the CI
treasury of Gilmoro Garden, and receive &
no benefit, when they were needing funds. j0
After the presentation, a dinner was W(
given to the two teams at Delmonicoa. ja
This cost $600, and was paid for out of J*
the warden receipts. c?
On the following day the excursion up ?,

about $500 more. This was considered a \\r
