From the Boston Post. Oct 10.
A most appalling tragedy occurred at
Longwood early yesterday morning. Mr.
George L. Richardson, of the firm of
Page, Richardson & Co., shipping mer
chants of this city, while laboring under
temporary insanity, cut'tho throat of his
son Henry, which resulted in immediate
death, and also in like manner attempted
the death of his second son, named George.
Tho boy who was killed was sixteen years
old, and tho second is thirteen. It is
thought the latter will recover. The sad
affair has cast a gloom over the commu
nity in which .Mr. Kichardson resides,
no Jess than in many business circles in
the city. The tragedy was the dominant
topic of conversation throughout the city
yesterday. It seems that Mr. Richard-.
son retired early Thursday evening, and
about one o'clock Friday morning his
wife awoke and found him very wakeful.
In a few moments he arose, and taking
a razor, went into an adjacent room,
where his two boys were sleeping and
committed the deed. -Mrs. Richardson,
hearing the cry of the youngest, ran to
the room am pulled her husband back.
A moment of reason came, and ho ex
claimed "Great God, what have I elone?"
and immediately left the house, clad only
in hisnight-shirt.
After committing the act, Mr. Richards
son left his home, which is on Pleasant
street, and made toward the mill-dam.
He stopped at the house of an Irishman,
and, rapping upon the door, demanded
admission, stating that he was cold and
wished to warm himself. While the man
was preparing to descend, Mr. Richard-.
son went off, and calling at the house of
-Mr. Henry A. l.reen, near the Cottage
Farm Station, on the Worcester railroad,
knocked at the rear door. The elomes
tics hearing him, inquired what he want
ed, when he implercd admission, stating
that he was cold, and urged them to come
down and make a fire. Beforo they had
timo to consider, ho threw up his arms
and rushed avrav. He was Mibseiiuently
found in his own barn wheroho had cov
ered himself up with hay. He was un
willing to enter tho house, and seemed
to be conscious of having committed some
terrible tragedy, and asked what ho had
done. Mr. Richardson was properly
clothed and sent to the insane asylum at
Somerville. It appears that he had been
ill for some time, and for a few days past
had not been ablo to sleep at all. It is
now thought that he has to'en meditating
the deed for several dajs past, and that
her intended to kill his whole family aud
then commit suicide.
Mr Richardson has a wife and four
children. He is a man of religious char
acter, and a deacon in the Orthodox
Church at Brookline. Continued ill
health, acting upon a nature naturally
sensitive, created mental derangement,
which is the sad explanation to be given
to this truly distressing affair. As soon
as the tragedy had occurred, lr Salis
bury, of Brookline, was called, and a
special messenger sent to Boston for Dr.
Bigelow, who tied up the arteries of the
youngest son, and it is thought that he
"will recover. Sympathy for the wife and
family thus suddenly and fearfully be
reaved, will be general. It is one of the
saddest occurrences that has been re
corded in this vicinity for many years.
'Inuddition totho above, we learn thatat
the time Richardson was taken in charge,
h remarked that he had it in his mind
to destroy the whole family himself in
cluded and in response to thefuestion,
"Why be desired to do such a dreadful
act?' said, "Oh, pride, nothing but
pride' At this time he appeared per
fectly rational, though it was ijuit evi
dent he was not so, as he did not seem to
know that her had done nny thing wong.

treats the established church there as

the case against it is aggravated by the
fact that it is the church of the rich, and
hns vet accomplished such meagre results.
He insists that the truo policy is tho pol
icy of justice and to apply the reenuo to

John Qniuey Adams.
John Quincy Adams, Democratic candi
date or Governor of Massachusetts, by
special invitation addressed a meeting at
Columbia, Sonlh Carolina, on the 12th
inst. He was introduced to the audience
by Wade Hampton. The following ex
tracts are much of this able, temperate
and kindly speech as we can find spaces for :
Now you can see clearly enough, to-day
where your interests lie, If you invoke
the Constitution, it is not hard to find the
reason. You need most terribly just that
protecting medium interposed between you
and the governing majority. A Constitu
tion is meant for just that ; to mitigate and
distribute the blows of majorities. Some
day, I have no doubt, we phall see in Mas
sachusetts tho merits of its operations as
clearly as you do now. But I fear it will
not be until we are in a minority, and look
in vain for the shield we threw away to
ward some threatening blow.
But to you, my friends, this necessity is
pressing, is overbearing something you
must have, you think, or perish. Now
without going so far as. that, I believo; Sat
the very best thing for yon to try to k
back is the Constitution of the United
States. Now you are substantially prison
era of war, held by military force, and Ji:
able at any time, to further orders from tho
majority. . I do not intend to speak disre-
spectfullyof'your State government, and I
would especially urge the utmost obedi
ence to your tie Jaclo rulers, bnt I take it
that it woutd not be long, insisted upon
here if it was understood that the North
took no manner of interest in H. Yon
want the original principles of Union re
stored, the right of the States to manage
their own domestic afTaira without the in
terference of the general government, and
the manifold checks and balances, and dis
tributions of powers, which our ancestors
desired re-adjusted, and I agree with you,
that it is your only practicable escape from
your jail, which Radicalism North and
South has made of yonr good old State, so
far as you are concerned, and this brings
us to the key of our discussion how can
tliis be done?
Why how did it happen to need to be
done. I mean the last and proximate
cause cf your present unprotecteil con
dition. It was, I think, mainly because
the extreme, impatient and fanatical por
tion of the governing party were enabled
partly in consequence of Mr. Lincoln's
death, and partly by the .indiscretion of
the South to Overpower tho calmer and
more moelerate men in the party, and wield
its whole force against you.
Of course nothing could tend more
simply to justify the several measures of
tbe Republican party towards you, or se
cure for them more surely an indefinite
extension of political power, than to be
able to persuade the North, which in the
early days of peace, was inclined to place
a generous confidence Sn yonr professions
of a sincere, and absolute acquiescence in
the event of the war, and your purpose to
abide in good faith by the decision, that
you were mere dissemblers acd dishonor
able perjurers. That your purpose was to
redeem by hard swearing, what you had
lost by hard fighting, and you yourself in
many cases furnished the material for mak
ing evidence against yourselves. Part of
it was legitimate, and part was very infe
rior, but it all was eagerly caught up and
unsparingly ti?ed. If you had been a
dangerous and foreign foe, whose utter de
struction was necessary to our safety, greater
pains could hardly have been taken to in
tlueuce the people against you and to cloie
their hearts to your appeals. 1 donbt if
Cato took more trouble to show the Roman
people that Carthage must be destroyeel
and Punic faith must have been very had
indeed if it was represented to be worse
than your own. Every hasty word, every
natural regret, every expression of pride
in tho memories of the old campaigning
day3 every ebullition of heat was care
fully remembered and spread before the
North. If an irresponsible newspaper
editor or reporter published a -foolish and
inflammatory article, it was instantly
ounce.l upon and scattered all over the
North to show that the mass of Southern
leeling was as rebellious as ever. If you
made anv attempt to take part in politics.
you were bent on revolution. If you re
fused, you were sullenly plotting a new
insurrection. The peaceful presence of
elelegatea at the convention iu New York
was a plot, and the resolutions were dic
tated bv you and your only object was to
seduce ihe Democratic party into a new
As your committee wisely and truly say,
n the letter of invitation to me. "The
policy of the South is peace, it is her only
hope, you will Bee this with your eyes, tind
hear it with vour ears." And they arc
right, 1 havi seen it with my eyes, and
heard it with my ears, and 1 am persuaded
that all this people know that they are
right, and feel as they do upon this point.
i iear also tnai me aumi33ion oi all ino
negroes iu these States to suffrage, and the
te-ItHion of, euhstaniiallv, all the leading
men ol the South from a share in shaping
your Constitutions and laws, coming when
t did, and as it did, will seriously aggra
vate tbe difficulties which beset your way
back to a cheerful and peaceful re-estali-ment
of mutually satisfactory relations.
Taken by itself, 1 think you might render
tolerable. With universal amnesty, 1
think that many of its more alarming
features wouU .liaappear or be very much
ameliorated. The tendency of this portion
of the reconstruction policy, lo encourage a
clas of political demagogues, to stir up
slrife and ill-feeling between the whites
and blacks here, upon which to found their
own political fortunes, is undoubtedly one
of the gravest defects of the system, in ito
practical working". It embitters relations
which might be cordial anil must be friend
ly, if you are to live together in peace and
prosperity. And here again 1 must urge
you to be patient, and, difficult though it
lie, to call a little philosophy to your

Considering the relations which formerly
existed between the two races, and the
greet advantage which the wealthy, educa
ted and intelligent land owner is always
lound to possess in agricultural communi
ties, I think you can hardly depreciate or
dread competition with adventurous stran
gers upon a fair field of rivalry. Your
legitimate and proper influence uirly ex
erted, must prove, in tbe long run, more
persuasive than that of strangers, or others
who are lacking in these advantages. At
least this has be-t-n the general experience
in other countries. But in order to secure
a fair opportunity even to try the experi
ment, it is essential that tbe dangerous ele
ment of hostility of race, cbonid bt kept
out of the calculation. If that poison be

Separated as our Slalei hava been for many

their popular characteristics are counter

thoughtful ; the other warm, impulsive and
impressionable. Combine these qualities,

by the sinking of the shoro of Hawaii,

WAsnmnTON, Oc. 1G. The Demo
cratic Committee is preparing for a prose
cution of the campaign with unwonted
vigor, and I find, by comparing notes with
prominent Democrats in this city, that the
prospect, so far from being gloomy, is
really very bright.
The feeling in regard to the election of
Seymour, is as deep as ever. Far from be
ing discouraged, the- Democrats every
where are resolved to move on in their
fixed purpose, and to accomplish the elec
tion of their cindidates. There has been
a disappointment about Pennsylvania, but
the belief is general that the Democracy of
that State intend to contest every inch of
ground, and that it ia not at all desperate, for
the 15,000 rejected Democratic voters will
vote in November. It is within the recol
lection of many that Pennsylvania once
gave a majority of 20,000 at an October
election and in November the unsuccessful
party carried the day. With Pennsylva
nia our success was beyond a doubt. But
we had votes to spare, and with even her
twenty-six votes against us we see bright
prospects for Seymour. In winning
Ohio the "Dutch have only captured Hol
land" again. It has been a fixed star of
Radicalism since the birth of that party,
and it was only the brilliant canvass of
last year which encouraged the hope of
better things. In looking over the field
we now admit the following Stales.? -j the
Radicals :

Of the remaining States which we clas.s
&3 doubtful, we consider that the Demo
crats have far the best chance of carrying :
Arkansas-,..-.-- 4 Louisiana.. fi
Missouri - 11 Koath Carolina .. S
Total 29
This wonld make a total of 160 votes
even if we should lose .Kansas, Minnesota,
New Hampshire, Pennsylvania and 'Wis
consin, all of which will be hotly contested,
and in none of which can the Radicals be
deemed secure in the small majorities by
which those States have been carried. To
elect Urant the Radicals must carry every
one of the last named Stales, and must se
cure eight electoral votes from the column
which we have counted as reasonably safe
for Seymour. With high hopc3 "for the
ides of November, our friends are called
upon to place their shoulders to the wheel
and manfully to push on regardless oi every
obstacle and heedless of the pretended con
fidence of their opponents, which will soon
be proved mere idle boastings.

Alleged Plot lo Assassinate
President Johnson.
Correspondence of the Baltimore Sao. -
Wasiusoton, Oct. 13. The -Erpraslhis
evening gives currency to the report of the
discovery of an alleged cot spi racy to as
sassinate President Johnson. The-facta as
alleged are certainly startling and are well
calculated to inspire alarm if they have
the least foundation in truth. Whether true
or false, names and dates arc given with a
freedom which would hardly be indulged
in if the report was a roarback, manufac
tured out of whole cloth. It seems, so the
story goes, that pending the impeachment
trial a number of negroes, led by a few
white men, banded together in'the first
ward of this city and took the most solemn
oaths to assassinate the President, if he
should be convicted by the high court of
impeachment, and should attempt to resist
the execution of .its judgment. When
impeachment failed, the object for which
they had banded together failed with some,
who abandoned the organizatiou, while
others, more bold and reckless, continued
to meet and talk over the matter until they
renewed their oaths to kill tho President
any how. By some means or other a man
named Frank Evans, who resides on K
street, near Twenty-second, and who has
been for some time employed in the ma
chinery department of the Note -printing
Bureau of the Treasury, became cognixant
of what was going on.
Evans made tbe facta koowu, and sus
picion was at once directed towards certain
localities in the upper part of the .city,
where it was ascertained the negroes were
in the habit of secretly meeting and dril'
ing. Last night Brigadier General Morris
Miller, of the Quartermaster General's De
partment, United States army, called at
the Note-printing Bureau, where Evans
was engaged, and in company with the
latter proceeded to the places where tbe
negroes were wont to assemble, and .it is
said Gen. Miller was thoroughly convinced
of the existence of the plot, and the name
of one individual is given who is alleged
to be the head and front of the plot. Mea
sures were immediately inaugurated to ef
fect the arrest of all the parties engaged in
the scheme, and it was deemed important
that the discovery should be kept as secret
as possible. It leaked out, however, the
newspaper men got hold of it, and whether
true or false, the country ha? another ex

Correspondence of the New York UeraVl.
Wasiiixotox, Oct. 13, 1SCS. Consider
able excitement exists here to-day, among
those who have obtained possession of the
newp, over the supposed development of a
plot said to be for some time in prepara
tion in this city to procure the anamina
tion of President Jchnson. Yesterday
evening a friend of the President's went to
the currency printing division of the Trea
eury Department and asked for a man
named Frank D. Evans, a night fireman to
the engines of the printing division, stating
that he was wanted at the White House.
Mr. McCartee, the Superintendent of the
printing division being absent, Mr. Lamar,
the Chief Engineer, gave permission for
Evans to leave hi3 work. Mr. Evans was
taken to the house of Colonel William C
Moore, the President's Private Secretary,
where he was examined as to what he
knew of the assassination plot. His story
looks remarkably like a false alarm, and
can be briefly repeated : Last spring Evans
and his wife were boarding at the house of
his brother-in-law, named Himebur, in
Twenty-first street, first ward, of this city.
Himebur was formerly a Rebel officer,
but is now an intene Radical, and
holds an office under our city authorities.
Oce night during the impeachment excite
ment Himebur, in the presence of Mr. and
Mrs. Eveans and his own wife. Blood up in
his own parlor and displayed with great
flourishing an American flag. This flag,
be said, had been given him by General
Butler as one of a company of conspirators
organized for the assassination of President'
Johnson. Evans said be felt alarmed at
the disclosure, and did not know how to act
whether to tell the President or not.
Finally he resolved lo leave Himebtirs
hoineand went to housekeeping for him
self. But the fear of fatal results from the
conspriacy still haunted him, and be told
several friends the story of Butler and his
tlag. Evans says that his wife as well as
hiidself was prepared to .swear to its truth.
Uimebur,.it appears, was Captain of a negro
company, composed of fifty men, whom he
drilled every night, and these ncgroe3
were supposed to be in the plot. Col.
Moore told thu President souu-lhipg
about the conspiracy last Sunday, while
out driving with his Excellency,
but the latter paid no attention
whatever to the matter. Mr. Johnson
treats the matter with inditfi-'rence. He
has not seen either Himebur, Evans or his
wife at all. and therefore the story, which
has been most indiistrion-dy circulated,
that lie sent for Evans to pump him or
ordered him to be sent to Hancock's head
quarters, is entirely erroneous. The whole
Biory 13 cviucnuy a piece ui i-iuavas.iuiv
on the put of Himebur, magnified and
perhaps embellished by ihe fears and imagi
nation of Evans. By some friends of the
President it is regarded in a more serioui
light. They believe that a conspiracy
really did exist abcul the lime of the im
peachment, bnt that it ftilfd to ripen in
lime, and that now all danger is past, and
that nothing is lo be gained by seriolH in
vestigation. Others say that Evans and
Himebur have lieen unfriendly, and that
the story was invented by Efans to injure
the other. Your correspondent had a talk
with the President this afternoon on the
subject, and found him lint in the least di

St. Lot-is, Oct 1C. General Blair was
serenaded tonight at his residence
on Washington avenue. Several Demo
cratio clubs with banners, torches and
music were present, and a largo crowd of
citizens generally filled the street Af
ter referring to local matters at some
length, the General spoke as follows :
1 am the candidate of the Democratic
party for a distinguished position, and I
expect to be a candidate so long as they
desire it and so long as I can avail to help
the great causo which we all have at
But, my fellow-citizens, it will be no
sacrifice to me, or, rather, it will be a
wort of pleasure to me, to surrender that
position whenever, by so doing, I can add
one vote to the strength of tho Democra
cy in this State, or any other of the States.
1 am not a candidate for tho purpose of
embarrassing or frustrating and defeating
tho principles which have my cordial
support, acd when I cease to be of use
in one capacity I am ready to try it in
another, and I call upon you here to
night, for tlits great causa which we all
havo espoused, not to hesitate to make
any sacrifice demanded to gain for us tho
victory. So am I ready to make any sac
rifice; so am'lTeady to go on and do any
thing? to take upon my shoulders any
burden, pr to lay down anything, that
may have "been conferred upon me here,
This brings me to allude to that ru
mor in our midst to'day; (Voice
" That's what we wan't ') It has been
said here that both of the candidates for
the Presidency and Vico Presidency
have signified their intention to decline
in favor of some other candidates. All
I have to say is, that both of tho candi
dates have always, from the moment
they were nominated to this moment,
and will always be ready to lay down
their candidacy when it can no longer be
of service to the Democratic party of
the country. (Cheers.)
If it should be thought now, if it
should be believed, that by so. doing we
could add to the strength of the Demo
cratic party and give it a better chance
for victory, you will find you arc not
mistaken cither in yonr candidate for
Presidency or the Vice Presidency, for
they will justify in yonr cyos the great
honor and distinction 'which yod have
conferred upon them, by showing that
they arc not unworthy and not insensible
of the honor. (A voice " we wan't no
Chase," other voices, " no; no.") That
is for you to say. (Voices " well done,
and erica of ' hurrah for Blair.' )
I do not desire, my fellow-citizens, an
expression from you to-night upon that
subject I want von to view it calmly
and dispassionately, without regard to
the feelings of any man, because tho
feelings of individuals arc nothing in
the scale as compared with tho great ob
jects we all have in view that of suc
cess, and tho restoration of our country.
I do not intend to abandon the field, in
one sense, at least I mean to beat my
share of the battle whether in tho
ranks or as an officer, will depend upon
the wishes of tbe Democratic party.
General Blair then thanked the crowd
for their attention and bade them good
night in the opening part of his speech
the General announced that he was
neither dismayed, terrified, nor discpur
aged at th result of the recent elections,
which wa received with cheers.

hen tioratio Seymour was, ny accla

United States by tho Democratic party, it
was conceded by all parties that he was
. . i i i r i . i
good statesman anu souuii.ueienucr oi
ir Constitution, but since his nomination
I have noticed many slanderous remarks
n rear J to his conduct during the war
Happily, Hon. A. G. Curtin, ex-Governor
of Pennsylvania, has expressed himself
in a most friendly manner, remarking
that the lea-st said against Seymour s con-
duet during the rebellion the best fbr tho
IcpubliciP party, as be would acijuiJ;
him of such abuse
Now as to F. 1 . Blair, I have observed
n several llepnbliead papers statement
that ho hud no claims whatever upon the
tepublican party, awl to this 1 would say
why not? a.s it because he Toiiglit in
tlie army and for the restoration of this
Union '' He was nominated at Tammany
Hall with shouts of applause, just alter
iMolaimmg that we must have a t resi
dent untrammelled by an unconstitution
al, oppressive and arbitrary Congress.
Since the close 01 the rsn.'iuon i nave
carefully noticed the expression of Smthi
ern journals, politicians and merchants,
nnd find that all are desirom of living in
brirmnnv. and expect that thr election "ol
Seymonr nnd Blair will be the menns.of
encouragement and tho extension of the
right band of fcllowohip, thereby evi
denoing a complete vindication of tbe
object of the war and of the Constitu
tion, nnd restoring, mo ngnis m uu im

The Fnll Fashions What In VFcrn au-Z '.
How It Is Worn.
The universal adoption of short ctstnnj
for the street is rapidly doing away w..
extra orer garment. A lady no long
finds it necessary to provide herself each
season with a separate wrapping-, since he
sails are complete id themselves, each will
its own wrapping, made with heavy cr
light material, as the weather req-ur?
The cloak stores find their occupation gene
and have become costume stores, devote
their best workmen to making suits. Ia
stead of the variety of silk and fai! .
wrappings usually imported at this season
only a few new patterns are brought or.
These are scarf-shaped with baschlik hoc L.
Watteau coaanaes with a broad pleat in tt;
back, or the long polonaise with cap.
The trimming ia pleatinga of the ma'.eru!
in frill, or the liat marquise ruche sewe 1
at top and bottom. Cashmere is ta:re
stylish than silk. It is made in bcblik
mantles and in large circulars with cap:J
trimmed with Iaca or fringe. Bra-lr--embroidery,
and a little jet ay I c . sc 1
on cashmere.
Some very dresiy plush jackets a.. t; '
in the bright Alexandria blue, garnet ar
French gray. They are short and 1 luatir
fitting the figure closely, are i -,.! j
wadded, and trimmed with satin i:r-" cr -
silk cord. A hood cut ia two pom's f. -i.
which, long tassels are pendent is a s'viii'i
addition. White buttons of velvet r.
pearl. The cost varies from t 54 '
Cloth cloaks are gored pelisses or t.-'.-fitting
basquines with capes or a hood, nr..'
are to be used aa the upper garment c
suits. As the prices arc high, often reac'a
ing $200 for what appears to be a very
simple garment, but few persona will cars
to buy more than one daring the eeacr.
It is therefore best to be content with a
black cloak that may worn with petticoats
of every color. The giy, warm boklr.,;
garnet cloth, a novelty this winter, k:
rich Humboldt purple, the dead In
browD, and Ihe soft, violet gray, are very
alluring in their beaaty, but will ne.th::
combine nor contrast well with ot!::
colore, and are too eonspicoou? to bo w.
all winter.
Scircely a cloak is shown withoirt fr!.-.-.-'
on rome part of it. A new fringe has s!:r
der, pear-shaped pendants. Ihe widece
ted heading is suitable for velvet, and i ir
favor with old ladies. Bullion ror.l ar '
tassel fringe are more drew. Fiau.e ar:
satin are pleated in a variety of d (T.-ren'
ways for frills and ruches, and as a h - Ini:
for fringe. Six or eight binds of f.it::i tri
color of the cloth, cross-cut, ha'f an ir.tl
wide, are stitched on both edges. W..L
band have several rows of stitching il. r
with accuracy, in straight lines. Utt -.r
braid of different widths is newer thr
folds. Buttons, both small and U;,:f, ar."
used in profusion. The wide rerge cr tad.

came a problem to know what wai d.-c-with
the plaids. Again it m affirmed w?
