j Is seldom tliut anyone conns here who
j docs not immediately ask lo have the Hon.
? William Scrapie pointed out, and the
j Mount Hojkj Hotel has in him a most attractive
feature, us he makes it hit* headj
quarters. I am glad to say that he is looking
better, younger and more civilized
^ than at any time during the last three or
> four years. Ho is not only temperate in J
| his drink, but iu his conduct. This comes,
, 1 am told, of having placed himself under i
, the guidance of General lien UutWr. This 1
eminent attorney, assisted by Col. Prvor, ,
, of Sew York, and Mr.Patten,of Providence, J
I is making a fight anaiust the hunerv horde 1
| dow bent upon growing Fat upon
| the Sprague estate. The sympathy 1
of the people here is with Gov- ,
! ernor Sprague, as he is invariably
^ called. Indeed, no oue who knows the
, story of his life can feel otherwise than the
| deepest sympathy for him. William
| Sprague did not go through the hardening
} process necessary to the accumulation of a
. fortune. He inherited his vast business
^ from his father and uncle, and entered into
public life with all the generous impulses
[ of a boy. What a grand entry that was!
^ With a strange instinct, for it could not
have been reason, he anticipated 'the late ,
| civil war. For two years he maintained
^ at bis own private expense two full bat^
teries of artillery, and when the call was
made by President Lincoln for troops lie ,
was tbe only Governor prepared to respond.
He marched into Wasbirgton at
the head of three thousand men, well
drilled and disciplined, armed and |
ilia short career as a soldier was so brilr
liant that men regretted his translation to '
tbe Senate. He was aa brave as C;esar,
ana as cool under tire ay on a parade. '
It was at the height of his career that he 1
" met Miss Kate Chase, the beautiful and acI
complisbed daughter of the Secretary of the ;
i Treasury, and as true a queen of society as :
? the palmiest days of France ever presented.
He wooed, won and wed tier with the en- j
* tire approbation of the social and political '
world. It was considered a most admirable 1
. match. The fact is, from the start it was 1
, most unfortunate. Kate Chase lost her s
mother when a babe, and was brought up 1
by her father. Kate grew up a brainy 1
J woman, but she grew her brain at the ex- ,
pense of her heart. She never loved but
j one man?she never bad respect but for
one man, and that man was her father. 1
1 She had but one objective point in life, and 1
- that was to make her father President. To 1
; this she sacrificed much, and was prepared
to sacrifice all?William Sprague included.
On the other haud, Senator Sprague was ;
* not oulv immersed in a business that
I luuuuitu up umuuu UlllllUIl>, UUl lit* UUU '
all that was in him interested in politics,
I at a time when politics was reddened with 1
blood, and invaded every household with '
intense excitement. He soon found that :
he had no home, and the differences between
himself and his wife began at the
end of the honeymoon and continued until
1 they culminated in the scandal of the seps
? The immediate cause of this separation
was the death of Salmon P. Chase. So long
' as he lived he kept peace between the two
* parties. The remote cause of the trouble
1 was money. I suppose Mrs. Sprague was
j the most extravagant woman ever married
to a millionaire, and William Sprague,
with all his dislike for his wife, was proud
1 of her, and never dreamed of putting a
I limit to her expenditures until he found
r himself embarrassed by a debt of nearly
$1,000,000 that he had'to renew every four
L months, and which was growing upon him ,
- with frightful rapidity. He at lust appealed
- to his wife, told her of his financial conv.
dition, and begged lie, by economizing in
her mode of living, to aid in saving him
from bankruptcy. She knew little about
f his business, antl, caring lets, took this as'
another specimen of his cruelty toward
s her'
Finding that be could have no influence
3 over his wife, he begged htr to call in some i
r friend in whom she had confidence and
o let him state his case. To this she readily
._ consented, and, to Mr. Sprague's utter
amazement, suggested Roscoe Conkling.
Now, Sprague and Conkling had personally,
through their political differences,
been such enemies that they did not

impulse was to object to the" referee, but
d so desperate were his fortunes that lie contl
eluded to humiliate himself and lay bare
Q all his business to his political opponent.
This lie did without any beneficial results
y from his debasement. Snrague claims
n that Colliding encouraged his wife, which
e is most likely a mistake, for she needed no
t encouragement in that direction.
< It was long after this, and while the un- 1
y happy Senator was running over the coun- 1
t- try striving in every way to save himself,
a that he picked up a paper one day and '
read the story of the Sprague-Conkling
scandal. The husband, as we all know, is ;
a the last man ever to hear of his wife's itn- 1
h prudence, and this fell on the ruined man 1
K with crushing force. He returned to !
Washington and challenged Mr. Conkling.
More prudent and cooler-headed friends !
3 persuaded him out of this course, and he 1
r withdrew his challenge. He, however,
served notice on Senator Conkling never
to set foot in his house again.
Shortly after this the gallant Senator

Sprague bad been called away as a wit'
nesa in an important law case, and ex
pected to be absent a week or ten days 1
i from tils unhappy household. I say un- 1
, happy, because hid wife contrary to his ex'
pressed wishes, came to Canonchet to pa.* !
7 the summer, with ten servants, and about 1
i twenty gay and festive visitors. Among 1
- the servants was one especially offensive to
Sprague in the form of a German tutor for 1
his sou Willie. This man Sprague believed
bad been employed to get Willie,
9 who sympathized with his father, out of 1
. the way of Conkling, and so Governor |
1 Sprague had notifieu the German tutor ;
* that if he appeared at Qanonchet it would 1
t be inftant death. He believed thgt tfie '
learned Gorman, indeed he was informed, I
was on his way to tho chateau. The die- !
futes between Governor Kpraguo anil his '
r wife over the heavy expenditures made the !

He !eft in accordance with his summons, 1

? Conkling wus at breakfast with the (amliy
in the dining room below. Senator Sprague
sprang from his bed in ?aiflte pf intense
excitement. The fact flashed be.toro hjs
. mind that be bud left home with the
. knowledge of his wife, to be pbsent ten
days or two weeks. His unexpected ro"
turn, twenty-four hours after, found in his
i house the man he had forbidden to appear
t there, and whose name in public estima
tion in connection with his wife was syn?
tfnvjnous with dishonor. It is a mystery
in this part of Rhode Island to this daj
how Senator Conkling reached Canonche
without being observed. The pier wai
crowded with visitor?; all the avenues o
approach were in the same condition, am
the conspicuous figure of the New Yorl
Senator was not one to pass unobserved,
nnd yet no man, woman or child knew ol
his coming, although they were made wel!
acquainted with his departure.
The outraged husband, dressing himsell
hurriedly, directed his son to fetch him t
revolver. Tbere was no revolver, however,
fortunately in order, and his only weapon
proved to" be a shot gun, and for thin ht
could only uet some powder. There wai
no shot, and getting a piece of lead he cul
it into six pieces, putting three into each
barreL Then appeared another difficulty,
there were no caps. Sending his son to tn<
Btable for a wagon that he might procurt
the necessary caps at the pier, hehurriedlj
descended with the gun in his hand. Io
the hall below he unexpectedly encountered
Uoscoe Conkling, who, at the apparition
of a man whom he expected was
hundreds of miles away, was taken so by
surprise that for a moment his usual calm*
ness forsook him. GovernorSprague wasted
no time in reproaches, but asked, in a cleat
cold tone, every word cutting like a knife,
"Are you armed?" ,
"I am not, sir," responded Conkling, in
u iauering voice.
"I cannot kill a snake under such circumstances,"
replied Governor Sprague,
"and I give you half an hour to get out ol
this house. "When we meet again you had
better be prepared, for I Bhall kill you'on
Entering the vehicle his son had brought
him, he drove hurriedly to the pier. Thai
he failed through hi* excited manner and
Btrange, deadly look out of his eyes, in pro
curing the caps, was fortunate for Governor
He returned to find the New York Senator
still under his roof. Whatever may be
the nerve of Senator Sprague, there is no
question as to that of Kate Chase Sprague.
She laughed to scorn her husband's threat,
and no man with a spark of courage in
him cared to play the poltroon in the presence
of the woman he professes to admire.
So Mr. Conkling remained,.with the best
courage he could summon up. until the
half hour was nearly gone. A little event
that happened just "then in the carriageway
in front of the chateau hasten pi! his
departure. Sprague met there the German
tutor in a buggy on his way to the Pier.
This was the spark to the fuse, aul
Sprague, exasperated beyond ehdurance,
loet alliiis control, and springing out of bis
own wagon, attempted to pull the German
out of his. He succeeded in securing only
a handful of hair from the beard of the affrighted
Teuton, who, whipping up bis
horse, went off at a gallop.
This scene was witnessed by Mrs. Sprague,
Senator Conkling and others, from tlu
library window overlooking the approach
lo the house. Mrs. Sprague laughed merrily
at the event, and Senator Conkling
said, with some anxiety, it was a wonder

"1 don't know about that," Eaid Willie
Spr.uxue, who was present ,4I saw father
load that gun this morning. He put three
slugs in each barrel, and had to go to tht
Pier for tuna.
This was enough for the >"ew York
Senator. Hurriedly demanding of Mrs
Spraguea conveyance, he flew to his room,
seized his portmanteau, and without waiting
to pack his hair-oil and mustachecomb,
hastened with more alacrity than lit
ever exercised in his life before to tht
stables, where he fortunately found a carriaga
already prepared, and in it he drove
rapidly to Burlington's Cafe, at the pier.
Fie did not, however, escape the infuriated
husband, who met him as he passed out
Sprague merely took out his watch and
held it up. The hint was unnecessary,
New York's favored son was in full retreat
from Rhode Island.
After Conkling left, it struck Spraguc
that he might procure a revolver or some
other weapon of defense at the pier, and sc
he followed him, and the scene, known tc
all the world, occurredjat the cafe. All thai
followed is so much a matter of record, thai
there is no need of my repeating it"
The Venerable Jlr. Siunuel Tilden Retire*,
but by Proxy.
New Yobk, September 14 ?The Sua thif
morning printed a two-column interview
with ex-Gov. John Bieelow. whn is nmi
has been Governor Tilden'a intimate friend,
in which Bigelow says, in a manner tc
make it a formal announcement, that Til
Jen's age and health are such thathe must
retire from politics, and that he will not
and cannot be a candidate for any public
office. Bigelow adds:
"Before the assembling of the convention
of 1SS0 I know that Mr. Manning, the
chairman of the New York delegation, wa?
informed by Mr. Tilden of his positive determination
to withdraw to private life.
His fixed purpose to do so, into which hia
strong repugnance to undertake the burden
of a canvass and of an administration
crystallized as the time for action approached,
was well known to me and to
others of his intimate friends. I do not
doubt, nor do I think be did, that if he
had encouraged his friends to canvass for
delegates throughout the Union he would
have received the nomination. Delegations
from several States called upon him and
tendered him their support, but Mr.Tilden
gave them no encouragement. Even at
the convention his nomination was believed
to be practicable, but Mr. Tilden, in
personal telegrams to Mr. Manning, positively
adhered to his purpose to retire to
private life."
' Then you. think," said the reporter,
"that if the nomination for the Presidency
were tendered him by the National Convention
m 1SS4 be would not accept it?"
"1 am quite sure," said Mr. Iiigelow,
'that he would not. There is no reason to
suppose that Mr. Tilden will ever again
quit the repose he has been preparing to
pass the remaining years of his life to a^ain
resume the leadership of parties, or to undertake
any olficial administration whatever.
Xo act or word of his since his re*
tirement justifies the hope that his frequently-avowed
purpose In this respect can
be changed. All pretended interviews or
information to the contrary, with which
some of the partisan journals have teemed,
and which have found some credit.with

1 Pittsuckoii, September 14.?The meetj
'ing of the puddlera held this afternoon, '
t was very largely nttended, at least GOO of
i that class of laborers being present. Be>
fore the meeting it looked as if the stalwart '
j clement would predominate. Two hun- '
dred men from the [South Side and Alle- J
i gheny, with a band, marched to the meet- '
ing. As they entered ,Turner Hall they
, cheered "for six dollars a ton and the
Amalgamated Association."
The early discussion was heated and
\ several fiery speeches were made. The efforts
of the conservative class were for
$5.75 a ton, and after u session of about
five hours resolutions were passed that the
puddlera would go to work for $5.75, provided
the manufacturers would accept the
[ terms within ten days. If not accepted,
1 then the puddlera will redemandsix dollars.
1 President Jarrett says this fsa comprom.
ise but not a surrender. He will call a
district meeting at once to have the associ
ation act on the proposition.
The finishing mill men as a class are not
satisfied with the result of the meeting, as
they think the terms will not be accepted.
: .Several manufacturers said to-nigbt that
' they would not sign the $5 75 scale, but
said they spoke for themselves alone.

it was decided to offer the manufacturers a

Washington, September 14? Foreman i

of the Star-route jury, in the form of an 1
affidavit, implicates one Bowen, who had i
I recently been appointed to a special agen- *
; cy in the Department of Justice?a place )
provided for him of $7 a day, in order that t
: he might have the benefit of rest and 1
travel at the Government cost It is a fact, j
' as shown by the records of this department, t
t that Bowen was appointed in the capacity
: ue contessed to Dickson; and when we
come to inquire, who is Bowen ? it ap- |
pears that he i3 a son of Henry C. Bowen, <
the well-known journalist of New York. ^
According to Dickson's sworn aflidavit 1
Bovren is the only pen*on connected with '
the Department of Justice who approached (
j him; but he was anxious to make an en- t
gagement with him to meet Mr. Attorney t
| General Brewster at Worm ley's and he as- j
sured Dickson that the Attorney General t
knew him well, had a high opinion i
of his requirements, and conceded that the c
[ Foreman carried the brains of the jury.
Here, in Washington, where mysteries
of this description are constantly occurring, ?
it is impossible to explain this and others I
of a similar character related by other i
members of the same jury. Juryman t
Doniphan was approached by a man |
named Shaw, who followed him about and a
pressed him to take some two or three i
hundred dollars, which he professed to s
have' and wanted to invest for the benefit 4
of S. W. Dorsey. Juryman Holimead r
avers that he was beset by a man named *
Fad, who also courted favor for Dorsey. ^
If these jurymen tell the truth, and they ii
are men whose veracity may be accepted, 1
men oiuiicn uu uufc ucucswiriiy implicate 11
the Department of Justice, uor should they
be taken as proof, against Dorsey. Each of
these had a motive of their own. Mr.
Bowen's enterprise in behalf of the Gov- tl
ernment is unexplainable. He may have u
been inspired with a purpose to tent Dickson's
virtues, with a view to making use of a
hj? discovery in a certain event. Tue mo* n
tives of the* others are equally obscure, j1
There are partita who make mysterious ,
employments a business, and it is a fact
that many a respectable and prominent d
person is dogged and followed by sneaks r(
without the slightest suspicion that their,
movements are a cause of anxiety to any
The safe burglary case, though not a par- T
allel to this, has its points of resemblance. t(
There was & conspiracy to connect a regpectable
citizen with this put ub job, and
when a variety of very ugly facts were
brought on the trial, some prominent per- u
sons, who were creatlv interests! in tl??
result, waited all night at a distinguished
club house for the verdict.
There is no reason to distrust the statement
of Foreman Dickson. He states what
happened to himself personally, all of n
which he reported to Judge Wylieas it oc- 1(
