ilUIIUVfl, I'UUIU.I .11,
An extraordinary story crucerniug iho
abdication of King Amadou comes lo me
iruui to high a source, that I am con
strained to believe it. It Is to this cll'oct:
The queen, as every ouu will remember,
was too PriucetB Mary, tho daughvr of
Prince Charles Emanuel dal P.i7.n illl
Uislerna; shu is only tweniy-Avu years of
age; shu it a very devout Catholic, and
sou is tho mother of tbreo chlldreu, tho
youngest of whom. a prloco,
was born at Madrid only a fow
days ago. Immediately before tho birth
of ibis child tlio young queen was in great
distress of mind, and in very alarming
Db vsical nain. and in her anony uf mind
and body she made a vow io tba Blessed
Virgin that if, through thn mercy of God,
she was braugbt safely through the perils
that then environed her, shu would beg
her husband on her knees to resign tho
throno of Spain, und to hasten back to
Italy. Hor husband was present when
perhaps in delirium she mado this vow,
and he uttered no remonstrance against It.
Therein no doubt tbnt bo has been grow
ing moro and more weary of Spain for
several months, and tho distress and
anguish of his young wife, to whom be is
tenderly attached, probably strongthoned
bis dosire to get rid of
his tliaaklets tatk. Events which
happened oftor the birth of the
child who, in tho opinion of its mothor,
was given hor only as hostage for tho per
formanco of her vow doubtless removed
all hesitation which ho might havo still
felt. He and his wife despite all his
noble qualities and all her graco and
beauty had never been ablo to win over to
win over to their side tho proud noblos of
Spain. 'Just as in Homo tho nobility of
tbo highest rank, with one or two oxcop
lions, sido with the Popo, and refuse lo at
tend tho court of Victor Emanuel, or to
givo any countonanco to his government,
so in Madrid tbo grandees held aloof from
As tbey callod King Amadeo, while their
wives could not be Induced to appear in
tbe train of his wifo. This alarmod and
irritated both of tbom not without rea
son ; but tbey continued to hopo that in
timo tbo nobility could bo won ovor to
their sldo. Tbe king mado a last effort to
do this on the occasion of tho christening
of tho new born child. Uo,askod tho
Duchess do la Torre, the wife of Serrano,
to presont tho royal infant at tbe baptis
mal ceremony. She refused with scorn,
and tbe por baVy would havo probably
had to suffer the ignominy of being "pre
sented" by a lady of low rank had not tbo
widow of Marshal Prim, hortelt a ducks,
contented to leave her mourning retire
ment and perform tbe function. I am
told there was a torriblo sceno in tho pal
ace that day, and it was thon thai
tho king finally yfolded to tbo
prayers and tears of his wlfo, and
made to her tbe promiso of abdication
which, as you know, ho fulfilled on the
1 1th of this month. " It is a groat honor,"
said the king In bis meiia.'O to the cortes
announcing bis abdication, "to preside
over the destinies of a country, however
disturbed. I had resolved to keep my
oath and rasp'ct tho constitution, for I be
llAvrd that mv loyalty to Spain would
compensate for whatever errors might be

ir hit cabinet and parliament wouia allow
him to do it, Amadeo Is a better Catholic
than cither hi fathor or brothar, and
vague dreams float through thn brain of
tho king of a reconciliation effected be
tween Italy nnd tho papal sea with Ama
deo on tho throno. This all sounds like
a romance, you will say; but I bavo reason
and tho best of reason to believe it, is

When Vowell Clayton's case comes

Norwood, in behalf of the investigating
committee, will offer a substitute lo tbe
majority report to tho effect
that Clayton's scat bo declared
vacant, Mr. Norwood it preparing a
speech on tho roport in which bo will en
deavor to establish that the canvass,
which rotulted in Clayton's election, is un
paralleled in tho history of ths carpet-bag

such painful pircumstances.

Tbo parversonets of tho people in electing
a Democrat when a Republican was much

acts as ho has hitherto in
very similar cases. That worthy

tho suppression was cosummated through

-There Is no spot in tbe United States
where the old fashioned political parties
are moro distinctly dead than In Hamilton
county. Party lines have almost been ob
llt.rated. Tbe old party machinery is
pretorved In running condition by tba
persons who get their living out
of politics, and the people are in
vited to answer to tho old calls
and cries. Perhaps they will ii lhy
have nothing better to do. Meantime the
Liberals represent tbo popular protest
against partisan Idiocy they have real
strength as protastanls against tbe popery
of parties, and it is not unlikely that tbey
may exert a decisive influence in tba
spring election. Cincinnati Commercial,
