The two most important things to bo done during this session of the Legislature is the election of a United .States Senator, and re-dis tricting the State. The Legislative caucus held last Thursday evening, in which Senator Sherman was re nominated, insures his re-election The open 'and frank manner in which this was done, and his large majori ty, goes to show that Sherman's strength is great, and that the peo- pie nave commence-in mm as a tried servant The caucus, contrary to the general rule,was thrown open to all. Both houses of the Legis lature are getting ready for busi ness. A joint rosolution was introduced from the Senate on Saturday provi ding that a committee of seven from the. Senate, and on motion of Mr. Bradbury nineteen from the House, be' appointed in re-districting the the State. Carried by 62 to 9. KU-KLUX TRIALS. At Columbia, South Carolina, the Ku-Klux trials arc finished for the present Forty-eight Ku-Klux from Spartansburg county, who confessed, . were sentenced to imprisonment ranging from one month to two years. The Petit Jurors were final ly discharged by Judge Bond, who it is expected will leave to-morrow for Baltimore. The Grand Jury sits for a few days longer. Kb de cision has yet been made in the Me Masters case. PROTECTION. Even while the Ku-Klux are stam ped out in South Carolina, the ap pear in Kentucky, where they have signified a determination to drive every negro from Enyette County. The day is past in which such threats can be seriously made. The defenseless people of the South, black or white, have the Govern ment of the United States for their protectionj and it may as well be understood that they will be defend ed even if it takes the whole power of the nation to do it. RUSSIA AND JAPAN. War between Russia and Japan is one of the possibilities of the near future. That the Japanese govern ment has taken no active steps as yet to resent the seizure of the Is land of Saghalicn is by no means to be construed as a pacific accep tance of that act by Russia; and the removal of her center of action in those seas b' the latter power from the port of Nikolaievski, at the mouth of the Amoor, to that of Vladivostok, close to the Chinese frontier, and practically in Japncsc waters, will, it is thought, bring about a collision. Th more wc hear of the Japanese, however, the more "knowing" a people they seem to be, and perhaps they have the rare wisdom not to bark before they arc ready to bite. When the steam fleet they are building is fair ly afloat, that time may, in their judgment, have arrived. PERSIAN FAMINE. No very general movement for the relief of the famine struck people of Persia has ever been made in any part of the civ lized world, though some spasmod ; action has been ta ken in parts of Europe; yet, accord ing to late accounts, the famine is unabated in its terrors, and the con sequent suffering is" undiminished. Previous contradictory reports may well be set aside, for the latest state ment seems worthy of credence. Is it not time that the Christian world did something for afflicted Persia? CUSTOM HOUSE FRAUDS. Despite the persistent efforts mad? to create the impression that the committee of Congress appointed to investigate Custom House frauds would not honestly perform the work assigned them, they are evi dently unearthing evil practiccs,and seem to be thoroughly in earnest in searching into any evils that may attach to the order system. It is clear that they arc inspiring intense anxiety among the gentlemen inter ested. GERMAN FLEET. It is now believed that a German ileetwill visit this country some time next summer, while on its way to South Americx This fleet- will consist of four powerful, first-rate vessels fully armed, equipped and manned, and it should meet with a warm welcome from America. But it is said that the object of the ex pedition is twofold to overawe Brazil and Venezuela. It is scarcely necessary to state that all America's traditions warn usjthata close watch must be kept upon this warlike ex pedition, and Prince Bismarck should be reminded that, while his authority may be, paramount in Eu rope, "there are limits beyond which he must not venture on this side of the ocean. It might suit that great man's plans to have a little, unim portant war across the seas, which would serve as a school for the Ger man navy, which was somewhat ig nored in the late war with France. but the advantages which might thereby be gained are scarcely greater than those he is sure of, by holding as aloof from America as nature and the American policy have decreed. DISGRACEFUL MUDDLE. arrcst of Warmoth The Louisiana muddle has be came worse mixed than ever. The Democratic members of the Legis laturc and those siding with them made affidavit under the Ku-Klux act that Governor Warmoth and his colleagues in he State Government siding with him, together with his adherents in the Legislature, were combining and conspiring to pre vent the execution of the laws. The United States Commissioner issued arid-twentjisix others, and the writs were served by the U. S. Marshal. The next step was the movement of the Warmoth party upon the State House, which they occupicd,and by impressing some stray Democratic members who could not escape in time from the neighborhood a quo rum of the Legislature was formed, the proceedings of the other faction in the Legislature declared null and void and a new Speaker elected. The anti-Warmoth faction, headed by Speaker Carter, held a meeting in another place and declared the Warmoth party in the State House not to be a legal Legislature. Plans, it is reported, were concocted for a movement in force upon the State House. The police, militia, and U. S. troops arc all under arms, but on whieh side their power will be used is not clear. It is reported that the President has rebuked the United States Marshal for arresting Gover nor Warmoth. It is a disgraceful state of things, and no credit attaches to either side in the controversy. JAMES FISK JR. The cowardly and cold-blooded assassination of Col. James Fisk Jr. in New York, on Saturday, will cause much comment through the whole land, for no man in the coun try was more universally known,his name, by good and b' evil, having been made as familiar as a house hold word, xne deceased, had an eventful life, one full of changes of luck and fortune, and died the pos sessor of immense wealth. His as sassin is a man of wealth, too and associated by marriage with some of the best families in New York. Frail woman was at the bottom of the murder. EIGHTH OF JANUARY. It is a suggestive thought that the Democrats assume entire owner ship of the 8th of January anniver sary of the battle of New Orleans. Gcn'l. 'Jackson, one would think, was all the military hero the coua try ever had worthy the honor of Democracy. Is it also a little sin gular that whi 2 they arc enthusi astic in their , raise of 'old Hickory' ol the past, .aev arc cxcceilinp-lv wicked in their denunciation and o abuse of living military heroes, whoso names will shine brightly in history through all ages. DEMOCRATIC CAUCUS. The Democratic caucus met Mon day evening to consider the Senato rial question. After balloting, G. W. Morgan was declared the nomi nee. In the meantime they arc to stand ready to receive advances from anti-Sherman men relative to a com promise candidate. The feebleness of tho Thiers gov crnmcnt is alienating from it the sympathy of Europe, and seems to bo engendering the contempt of Germany. This is another step to-1 wards absolute failure. Wc have little doubt that a change must oc cur, ere long, but whether in favor of the Orleans or Bonaparte family remains to be seen. a ALONG THE LINE. No. V. Having a few hours before train time, wc called on the editors of the Davenport Gazette, and spent a half hour or so in general conversation. This office is well fitted up and the proprietors are meeting with great success financially and politically. The paper is a good one. Passing along towards Chioago and a short distance from Rock Is land, is the town of Moline, one of the heaviest manufacturing towns in the West At 10.20 P. M. we left Davenport for Chicago, at which city we arrived the next morning. The weather was cold and stormy with a slight fall of snow. In consequence of being detained atthc hotel wc missed the train and were obliged to wait till evening, when wc started for PLYMOUTH, IND., At which place we arrived at 8:45 P. M., and put up at the Empire House, kept by J. E. Fleming & Son formerly proprietors of the Empire House, Millersburg, and arc well known to citizens of this countyJme This house, ibeing located near the depot, on the main street, and kept as it is in first-class style, makes it as it should be, the headquarters for all travelers. The Messrs. Fleming, assisted by their accomplished la dies, spare no pains in their efforts to render their house all that may be desired by a stranger. The house is doing a large business. Mr. Fleming and son have our thanks for showing us around the town as well as for other favors ex tended. Y e visited the new court house, now being built, which, for cheapness, convenience, comfort, as well as beauty, will have few equali in the Western or Middle States. It is built of briclc and Jolict stone. containing offices for the county of- ucers ana a court room. The build ing is fire-proof, has two stories and a basement, and is located on high ground, overlooking a vast scope of country, it is a credit to the county. Plymouth also has some very fine store-rooms for a Western town and supports two very respectable county papers, has a population of about d.ooo, has two railroads with a pros pect of a third. This county has one drawback, it is slightly Demo cratic, but will, like many others, see the error ot its ways and come out clean handed some day. Friday noon we started for home, well pleased with our visit at Plym outh and our stay at Mr. Fleming's. WARSAW Is another of the growing towns of Indiana, has a good conntry snr rounding it, is a good business point, with lair railroad labilities. At jioxroeville We met with the only mishap during onr trip W est As the train was go ing along at a pretty rapid speed, a two-horse team was run into, which was in. the act of crossing the track, instantly killing one horse and so crippling the other that ho had to be killed instantly. Thus in less than three.minutes two horses were killed and some man out of pocket several hundred dollars. The pas sengcrs did not know anything of the occurrence, the shock not being felt, until the tram stopped and the conductor and others started back to see what damage had been done. Whether tho team was in the act of running away or the driver attempt ing to cross the track before the engine, was the cause of the acci dent, we did not learn. All r ight again, and away we glide to tho cast as though nothing had happened. The old "iron horse" is a very stubborn fellow and generally has his own way, defying everything that it comes in contact with. As you proceed eastward, on the P., F. W. & C. R. R.,you see here and there some poor land, but, as a whole, the road runs through a good country and penetrates some of the nchest'and best portions of Ohio. Night brought us to our home. Wc'have thus given a running de scription of our flying trip to the West, and only wish -to say some thing as to the CLASS OF PEOPLE THAT LIVE WEST. We have heard it said and inti mated that, generally, it was the ignorant, shirtless people that gen erally emigrated west, while we admit that in the west as in the east can bo found people of all nations, conditions and colors, wc believe there are less of the shifting, mouth to mouth class, in proportion to pop ulation, in tho west than in the east A man or family that think they will go west and live there without work ing or doing much, miss their calcu lations very much. It is work, en terprisc and energy that has made and is making the west what it" is, and that is the kind of people sought after and desired there. A loafer has few friends. Go into any of the western towns and you see every- Doav uusy, anu a more cheerful. pleasant and accommodating people cannot do lound auywherc. Winter-is of course rather an un pleasant time to vi3it the western prairies, but sitting by a warm stove and having good company there is no occasion to be lonesome. The west politically, as a general thing, is Republican, which, of course, accounts for its prosperity, for never was our Government on sounder footing or on better terms with all foreign nations than it is now under the rule of the great Re publican party. It is this party that has made the Great West what it is, bv offering great inducements to emigration, not only from eastern states but from foreign couutrics. But it takes people of all classes and conditions to make a great country likc this, and it would also be a great uimuiuiui: io una people were tucre but one political party. inc west is quite jealous of the east, and therefore strains every nerve toward progress, and is well compensated too for what it does in tins direction, jjiu some of our Eastern and Middle States, and es pecially somo of the towns iu those States, show tho same spirit, there would bo less old fogyism, towns would prosper better, and sometimes find less difficulty in securing rail roads than they do now. Indeed, wc are of the opinion that if some of our old towns here in Ohio, could for single week watch the stir and bus tie of a busy western town, many of them would awake from their slum bers and show a spirit of new life. But wc will leave our readers here, and if they have been benefltted by aii3'tliing wc have said, nil well, if not, wc presume it is all well also. L. NOYES. Inaugural Address of Governor R. F. Noyes. to add the remark.that some amend- Gentlemen of the Senate and House of Rep resentatives: In accordance with the expressed will of the people, I appear before you to day to take the oath of office, and to as sume the duties of Governor of Ohio. I do not fail to appreciate the impor tant trust confided to my charge, or the bonbr too little merited,of being select ed as Chief Magistrate of a State, num bering nearly 3,000,000 inhabitants, and holding high rank in the nation on ;ac count of the intelligence, virtue, and material prosperity of its citizens. It Unfortunate that the emergency of our civil war, and the heavily burdened years which followed it, have passed away, so'that there -is less need than formerly, of those high administrative abilities, and that experience in politie aljaffairs which made the State of Ohio pre-eminent, when exercised by my predecessors. While I may not expect to rival them in successful administra tion, I shall hope not to be outdone, in zeal for the public good, and in honest effort to promote the best interests of all, over whom Tarn called to preside. To this end, I invoke the support and co-operation of the law-making branch ol the state government- Propriety and prevailing custom make it the duty of the retiring Govern or to communicate to the Legislature such recommendations as in his judge ment may; be necessary. This service has been so well performed bv Gov. Hayes, that I do not feel called upon to repeat or modify any ofhis suggestions. It may not be improper, however, for menrto "extsttng legislation seems to be desirable with reference to the manner of selecting runes in our courts. The habit of filling the panel largely from bystanders, who are present in the court-room for the express purpose of serving a3 jurors,opcns tne uoor lor cor rupt and dishonest practices, at vari auce wiin puuuc morals, anusuDversivi of justice. It is feared this evil is too common, especially in large cities, an your attention is respectfully invited to the subject. There does not seem to be, at this time, any pressing demand for exten sive legislation; and I therefore con gratulate the Senate and House of Rep resentatives upon the prospect of t short and harmonious session. Inas much as the Constitutional Convention will assemble during the present year. and will, undoubtedly, make mauy changes with regard to ti. i powers and duties ol tne legislature, enactments, otherwise might seem to be desirable. may well be deferred for .e present.- It is a great satisfaction ,o know that the internal improvement and develop ment or the State are being carried on succcsfully, by individual enterprise and private capital. Itailroaus and tel egraph lines are being rapidly extend ed rapidly extended iuto parts of the State heretoiore more or less inaccessi ble, whereby districts rich in coal, iron and agricultural resources, are brought near to ready markets. Our multiplied industries are inviting labor from other States, and furnishing employment and homes to emigrants from other lands. Towns' and cities are being built with unexampled rapidity. The finances of the State are in a prosperous condition, since the public debt grows smaller and the burdens of taxation lighter. Edu cational advantages are brought to tiie doors of the poorest and humblest citi zens, and the common schools of Ohio are perhaps second in excellence to those of no other State. It is our great nrivelcge to guard them with icalou: care, as nurseries of the brain and the heart of our youth. While neighboring cities and States, have, within the past year, suffered al most unpreceuenteu anuetions,anu nave been subjected to appalling disasters, kind Providence has dealt gently with us,and has crowned our lives with pros perity. Gratefully remembering all our mani fold blessings, I am now ready to enter upon the discharge of new duties,in the position assigned me. If, at the end of my official term, I shall be permitted to return to private life, bearing with me tho respect and good will of the men of all parties and conditions, in the meas ure enjoyed -bythe distinguished gentle man wuu to-uay uiusj uu uiiiciuuy laru- weii, i snail dc lortunate inuecu.' Mr. Colfax and the Vice Presidency. The South HenilJlcgiste'rof Jan 4th,has the following concerning vice President Colfax, whose home is in that place The last issue of Harper's Weekly says that Mr. Colfax has frankly admitted that notwithstanding his avowed inten tion to retire from public life at the close of his present term, yet if a nom ination is oflered mm by the Itcpubli can Convention, he will feel bound to accept it, and it further says that the nomination would proDauiy oe accept able to bun. "We have heard Mr. Colfax express himself freely and frankly on his in intention to retire from public life at the expiration ol the time lor wlitcn he was elected, and of his earnestness and desire to do so, there is not the least doubt, and he has many reasons for so doing, no received eignt nominations by his party for Congress , and three unanimous nominations by his political associates in the House of Representa tives for Speaker. He was nominated for Vice President on the ticket with General Grant in spite of geographical locality, over many distinguished com petitors. When clectedjhe announced to his most intimate friends that there he intended to halt, and after he had serv ed that term not to be aspirant to that or any other othce. His greatest- am bition was satisfied, and he had no de sire to take a step higher.. Twenty years of political, support was as much as nc couiu expect, and nc claimed that at the next -National Convention, with Gen. Grant as the nominee for Presi dent, the East or South bad a right geo- eTapnicaliy, to expect tne second onice and he would cheerfully support the nominee, and labor as a p ivatc citizen lor tne principles lie hat so earnestly maintained. Another reason for Mr. Colfax desir ing to retire to private life is that he is by no means a wealthy man, in the com mon acceptance ot tho term. From the day he became Speaker of the House un to the present hour his expenses have exceeded his receipts. The Vice Prcsi dent has to live in Washington in : style becoming the second highest offic er in mo nanon,anu on me prcsentmca jpe salary, nearly one-half of it goes for house rent alone. Every man likes to lay up something lor a 'rainy day.' Mr. Colfax is an excellent business man and has many good oners awaiting ac ceptation when his term ends, at hicrh salaries, some of which he would no doubt accept but a desire to live in this city, where he has been a citizen for over 30 years, and for whose citizens he has had such a candid and earnest friendship and regard. Accordingly last year ne invested largely in a lurnl- ture factory and a chair factory here. and has accepted the Vice Presidency of cacn company. Mr. Colfax supposed that there would be no trouble in his retiring to private Me and their labormg lor the party which had placed so much confidence in him and had crowned him with so many honors. But when there is such a strong desire manifested in the party to again place mm on the ticket with Grant, a desire that reaches from Sena tors down to the humblest iu the ranks, we do not see how he can reject the nomination, or, as has been said, throw it back in their faces'. Harper's Weeilii judges him wrongfully when it says the nomination would ucaccrptauic to mm. We know that his greatest wish is to re tire to private life, but wo believe also that It would bo wrong for Mr. Colfax to reject an unanimous rc-nominatlon. a v., For the REPUBLICAN. Correspondence.

Stokes--Death Ensues after Twenty Hours of after Twenty Hours of Suffering--Intense Public Indignation Against the Indignation Against the Murderer-Lynch Law is Indignation Against the Murderer-Lynch Law is Threatened--the Assassin Closely Confined in the Tombs-Fisk's Will. NEW YORK, Jan. 6. James Fisk, Jr. was shot twice in the breast by Edward S. Stokes, at the Grand Central Hotels at 4:20 this after noon. The affair took place in the ve: tibulc. Fisk was assisted to a chair. It is thought he cannot survive. Stokes was arrested and conveyed to the Fif teenth Precinct Station House. Fisk had just alighted from his carriage and entered tne notei wnen ne was suot. NEW YORK, Jan. 6. The following are the circumstances attending the Fisk shooting case: At half past four o'clock this afternoon carriage stopped at the entrance of the Grand Central Hotel. It contained Jlr. Fisk and a companion. The" former alighted and entered the hotel for the purpose of proceeding to his rooms, As he ascended the lirst step otoKei came out ol the urst passageway, un perceived by Fisk, unbtittoned his coat. drew out a revolver and rapidly dis charged three shots at Fisk. The first lodged In Fisk's' shoulder the second whistled close by his head.and the third with more fatal aim, took- effect in the abdomen, mulcting a mortal wound, Fisk at once staggered and fell, while btoKes, casting a look ol hatred on the prostrate form of his victim, said savage tones : "I have done tor the of a b this time!'' Fisk evidently recognized his assailant ociore tailing, but made no remork until after the shots were fired. The hotel employ niched to the scene. While some cared for the wounded man others seized Stokes, who seeing escape impossible made no resistance, lie was promptly liauucu over to tne ponce, i isk w kquickly conveyed to his room, where the surgeon ot the hotel was soon attendance on him. Meanwhile a tele graphic message was sent for further surgical aid and lor tnomcnus ot i isk, The scene at the hotel after the shoot ing was one of extraordinary excite ment. Crowds coming from the mat inees at the theatres, hearing of the oc currauce, thronged the cornders of the hotel, eagerly discussing the event and maKiug inquiries auout tiie particulars. The omcers who arrested Stokes con veyed him to the Fifteenth Precinct Station, where he Is now lodged in cell. It is said that the orders of Jud Brady restraining Stokes and Miss Mansfield from publishing the letters in Miss Mansfield s possession affectin Mr. Fisk, Peter B Sweeney and others. has had an exasperating effect, on stoKes,and it is believed he was aroused to desperation, partly in consequence of rumors, generally received as well founded, that the Grand Jury have found indictments against himself and Miss Mansfield for attempts to black mail mss. The wound iu Fisk's abdomen is sim ilar to that which caused the death of the late Mr. Vallandigham. The doc- for the bullet.but have not vet succeed ed in finding it. It is not supposed the wounded man can survive till mornin; The coroner has been sent for to take Mr Fisk's ante-mortem statement. NEW YORK, Jan. 6. NEW YORK, Jan. 7. A few minutes before eleven o'clock tins morning James Fisk Jr., expired, All that unremitting medical skill and attention could do had been done,but of no avail. Jay Gould was in attendance from an early hour this morning. The news of Fisk's death spread rapidly and everywhere produced a proloiind sensa tion of regret. All aspersions that his enemies had heaped upon hi3 character were in the moment lorgotten, and only his noble qualities of head and heart .were remembered. The scene in and ayoHUif jfte;roomi.where the body lay was .toucningm tue extreme, it be came, necessary to admit up-stairs only those'Jwho came on business. Later iu the afternoon, prior to tho removal of the body1 to d isk's late residence, the gcneralpublie were admitted to view the body. At six o'clock this "morning the first ominous.change appeared in the patient, aitiiougn not pernaps tne lirst indica tion ol his nnal end. llo grew a little restless, ins lace snowed greater pallor, and his breathing became less easy and regular, un ieeung nis puise ur. t inn er found it was.more rapid,-very nearly one nunureu. At nan-past six uol Fisk said something in a broken tone, and then closed his eyes. The change in his face became more apparant, the pallor more ucatiuiKc, and moisture appeared on his forehead. The pulse was over one hundred and the doctors stood by the bedside, watching the pa tient attentively. At seven o'clock it was first announced that he was fast sinking, and that danger of the sudden ending of intense agony was very great His pulse was at this time 130. Dr. Fisher went down stairs in a hurried manner and asked something of the night clerkand went back again. He looked very anxious. At a quarter past 7 jars, t isk arrived She was admitted lirst into an ante room, and soon afterward into tho bed- rtiom. Mrs. Fisk was terribly agitated at the bedside of her .husband. This scene was the most heart-rending that had yet taken place, and those present could not suppress there emotions. Tho doctors were appealed to by his wife to give somo little hope, but they gently indicated that they dare not say there was any chance oi me. nsK was not much moved at moments when he was cognizant of his surroundings, but seemed never deserted by that coolness and fortitude which he displayed when urst shot. At eight o'clock there was little change. At half past eight the doctors consulted, 'and at nine o'clock the sup pressed excitement about his bed was inmost too intense to bear. At half past nine the menus wcra permitted to go to his bedside, and he thanked them for coming. After this the rapidity" of uei-uuu auuneu iLcii more strongiy than at any time before. At ten o'clock were w as an eager anu nusueu WI11S pering, as it was told in every car that uieenu'was sureiy drawing nign.
