Fisher, - :
At Iroaton, Ohio, on the 16th, a
Mr. Allon O. Myers made a political
speech in which he said that .W- B.
Toralineon, editor of the Busy Bee,
had a negro mother. Tomlinson was
absent at the time, but the news was
carried to him. lie sent Myers word
demanding a retraction pf sueh re
marks as had reference to his moth
er. No answer came, whereupon
Tomlineoa brought Myers to bay at
his hotel at dinner. "Do you know
my mother?" asked Tomlinson, at
the earn time displaying a revolver
of the hughest caliber and advising
bystanders to keep their distance,
"No," answered Myers. " Then
stand upland, hold up your right
hand !" thundered Tomlinson. My
ers obeyed. "Now," added Tomlin
son, savagely, while covering Myers
with his revolver, " swear by the
eternal God that what you said in
your speech about my mother was a
lie, and that you knew it was a lie
Swear threo times." Myers obeyed
and Tomlinson walked off.
SLIOITTL Y MIXED.
Tho Cincinnati Enquirer's New
York special says "The stalwart
Republicans are beginning to show
their hands, and tho old fogies at
the Republican National Committee
rooms are astonished at tho exhibi
tion. Conklinc: has kept himself
very quiet, and until within a few
days has hardly spoken on thepo
litical situation. ' He went to TJtica
and to Albany last week and saw
several of his old friends. Since bis
return stories of disaffection among
stalwarts have poured in from every
side. The Blaine men say that the
stalwarts are doing: this in order to
extort promises from tho candidates
and have a hand in the offices in the
event of Blaine's election, but tho
stalwart's simply reply: Remember
that Blaino was the cause of all the
trouble between Garfield and Conk-
ling, which drovo Conkling , from
public life, and remember that tho
Blaino Republicans knifed Folger
when ho ran for Governor. The
stalwarts are very angry and in New
York, Utica and Albany' some of
them aro talking openly for Cleve
land. Conkling tells all newspaper
reporters that ho is out of public
life, and has no interest in . polities,
and hag nothing to say. To his
friends and acquaintances he talks
with the utmost freedom. The tem
perance movement in western New
York bothers tho Republicans very
much. Altogether, things are very-
much mixed in New York State. No
wonder that the Republicans have
summoned Blaino in hot haste to
come on and straighten things out."
A "Witness to Blaine's Wedding.
Pittsburg,, Sept. 22. "Yes, I was
ono of the witnesses to the marriage
of J. 6. Blaine," said David G.Bell,
tho well known attorney, who was
found in his office this afternoon by
a reporter and questioned concern
ing his connection with that now
famous nuptial event, "I made'' a
memorandum in my diary at the
time, which is about v all I can re
member about it.'.' ' Mr. Bell here
produced a large cloth bound book,
closely( written in. . Tho diary cov
ered that portion of his life from
134C till October' J851.' , The' mem-!
orandum was as follows :. "March

When questioned as to how ho came
to be a witness of tho . marriage,
Bell said, "I was a, graduate at Jef
ferson' College, and Blaine was a
Washington tnan. I don't remem
ber that I had ever met him before
John Lemoyno knew, him intimate
ly, and it was at his request that I
became a witness. I can riot recall
any of the details beyond the mere
fact of my being present at the cere
mony. The whole affair is a blank
now in my mind." . t
(. "Ilad you received the impression
at the time that it was a morganat
ic or clandestine , marriage, do you
think you would have remembered
it?". ... .' V "
"I think that had I received any
such impression the fact would have
left so 6trong an impression on my
mind that I should have been able
to recall it. I, have been thinking
over the matter pretty intently for
the past threo weeks, but can recall
no .circumstance that would warrant
such, a conclusion. Mr. Leraoyne
wrote, to me some . days ago in re
gard to the date, . but 1 have never
received any ' communication from
Mr. Blaine in regard to tho matter.

all hat I know, about the matter,

AN OLD TIME TRAGEDY,
A correspondent who is traveling
abou in Virginia has found among
the numerous rjaoss:grown old tomb
stones in the graveyard of Williams
burg one which bears the following
inscription r ; '. '
Sacred to the merrory of
- - - Sarah 'Semphiil; .
j Who died at ihe. age of 25 slain
. with her two infant daughters, by
her wn husband.
She was fair to looknpon.pure as snow,
and beloved by all who knew her.
Divine Providence alone knows why
she had to. peiish so miserably.
This epitaph, some Tf the words
of which are hardly legible any lon
ger, ia the only record left of one of
the most terrible tragedies that ever
took place in the Old Dominion".
It was in 1798 that John Semp
hiil, a young man who said he was
from Santa Cruz, in the West Indies,
and settled there as a tobacco plant
er. He had plenty of money, and
was able to purchase l.OOO.acres of
the finest soil within a short distance
of tho old town. - .
Being apparently a gent'eman in
every sense of the word, Mr. Semp
hiil was admitted to the best socie
ty in his new home, and a year la
ter ho married Sarah Jones, a beau
tiful heiress, the wedding festivities
being celebrated with extraordinary
pomp and splendor. In course of
time two daughters were born to
the young people, and everybody J
predicted a long career of cloudless
happiness for them. Alas ! how ter
ribly those bright anticipations were
to be dinappointed. It was on Christ
mas eve, 1801, that a strange look
ing man, in a sort of military uni
form, appeared at the house of Mr.
Semphiil, who was in Richmond at
the time. . Mrs. Semphiil received
the stranger in the parlor.V
"Do you speak French; madame?"
he said to her in very broken En
glish. ... "
Sho replied in tho affirmative
"Then, madame, please send your
two nurse-girls with the children
outof the room."
She did so, and looked interroga
tively at her visitor. Tho latter hess
itated a moment. Then he said in
a tone of deep emotion :
"Poor lady, I have terrible tidings
"Heavens!" she cried, turning
very pale. "My husband
"Your husband is an infamona
"Sir !" she exclaimed, indignant-
"He has basely deceived you. He
is an escaped galley-slave, a thief
and a murderer."
She uttered a
"Do you tell me the truth ?" she
"He is a Spanish thief, and was
sent -to the galleys of Barcelona for
life. He made his escape thence
and fled to Cuba, where he robbed
and murdered a rich planter. I am
here to take him to Cuba, where the
scaffold awaits him."
The afflicted lady had ' become
strangely calm. " ' .
"Sir," she said to the stranger,
"before you arrest him will you pers
mit me to hold a private 'interview
with- with- " : ; .
"His true name is Juan Cefiro. If
you will let me remain in an adjoin
ing room until he returns from Rich
mond, whero I understand he. has
gone, you may see him privately."
"I expect him back every mo
Half an hour later Cefiro, alias
Semphiil, made his appearance. His
wife briefly told him everything. He
flew into a violent, terrible rage; he
shot her through the heart and
mehtfd out of the room to the nurse
ry, where he stabbed his two little
daughters. : '
The next moment the Cuban offi
cer, who had rushed after him,' and
succeeded after a' desperate strug
gle, in shackling him.
' The news of this terrible tragedy
spread ; like wild fire through the
town, and in' less than twenty min.
utes a large concourse of people had
gathered in front of Semphiil alias
Cefiro'8 house. Vociferous threats
to lynch the murderer were made
and the deputy sheriffs, who were
promptly on hand 'to arrest him,
had the utmos difficulty in taking
hini to jail, where he was chained
to'tho flocr, having threatened to
commit suicide : ' - i .'
The villain was hung on the 17th
of May, 1S03. ' i
- Here is what Chas. A. Dana said
in 1873 about B, F. Butler, to whom
he now gives his earnest and zeal

: "Hated by some, condemned by
many, and distrusted by all, this
bad man with his crooked ways,' foul
methods, distorted mind and wicked
heart, glories in these moral deformities-,
