Witt Uri sf a -Bloody ZiitX" Hs With. Washingtou, Nor. 6. The World correspondent called upon Geu. Logau tbis aflernoon and asked biin what b bad to say about the New York electiou. He raid be bad netbiug to Bay abont it iu particular, more tbao that the Democrat seemed to bare carried the State by quite a majority. "I see that the New York Timet and other papers iu New York, as well as the Cbairuiau of the Re publics.! Committee, attribute the Bepublicau defeat in part to the 'bloody-shirt' campaign that was made," said the correspondent. -I see that iusiuuation baa been made iu some of the papers, at which I was very much surprised. I presume it was on account of the appeal I made to the voters of New York wheu I spoke for an bouest ballot and a fair count. I did say that it was a fact that in many of the Slates South, in many parts f thetu, Republicans were not allowed a free ballot; that they were cheated out of their rights as American citizens. I did call attention to the fact that the vote cast iu New York iu 1884 waa 1.1CT.22C. On that New York bad thirty-six members of Con gress and Senators and thirty-six votes iu the Electoral College. That Alabama, South Carolina, Louisiana and Mississippi all com bined cast 474.908 voles in 1884, a little more than one tLird the vote of New York. On that vote these States had thirty six members of Cnngret and east thirty six elec toral votes. 1 raid that the re inaiuder of the voters iu these States were prevented from cast ing their ballots, and iu that way one vote In the South was equal to two and one half votes in the North, and if any Democrats in New York was willing to admit that be was entitled to only a little more thau a third of the influence iu this government that Demo crat South whs entitled to it was a question for him to determine. I said that the charge tbut Repub lie. us could have prevented this was not correct. The Republi cans were not the ones who com mitted the frauds or did the bull dozing, and therefore they were not the ones to correct it. but it was an easy matter for the Demo crats to put n stop to it by ceasing to perpetrate these frauds over the country. I said that if tins was continued it would tinally be destructive to republican govern ment. If any man in New York, Republican or Democrat, indorsed this kind of fraud and does not wish it stopped, then to him I have naught to say. 1 was against it iu my speeches iu New York. I am a.aiust it now and propose to contiuue to bo against it. If this is what is called walng the bleody shirt by certain so-called Republicans in New York, then I did it and will continue so to do it wherever I go, in or out of Con gress until these frauds cease. Until they do cease the Govern ment will not be fully restored. HISTORIC miLLELS, A Most BuBArkt.ls BtMtitioa is Us Histo ry of rraaoo.

It would not be easy to Bud twe historical narratives with more similarity among the iucidents than these crushed first by the English and afterwards by the German. Many phenomena, it has often been remarked, iu the career of Napeleon Itouaparte bore considerable resemblance to those experienced or reproduced by Oliver Cromwell.

Tbe Tils ef It. Avalanche. It seems to be conceeded that M. Pasteur, tbe French scientist, has found a preventive for hydro phobia, by which that dreaded dis ease nviy be eradicated. His inves tigations have uot been confined to hydrophobia. If bis researches into the causes of disease and for the discovery of prevention and remedy stopped there they would confer but a small benefit upon the human, race. For all the dread of hydropho bia, because of Its nature, it source uod its incurability, tbe amount of real injury iufliuted upon man by it does not amount to one thonsandeth part of that done by the mildest of human dis eases. But M. Pasteur's dlscov eries strike bo st the root of all diseases that, allowing that bis theory is correct aud the applies tionofit practicable, it Involves far-reaching consequences. If he is right, effort to extend tbe prin' ciple to the deadly epidemic dis eases have been only premature. A str ide" muiTV. N. Y."Herald.1 Samuel Clmse, a bright flaxen haired youth of sixteen years, has been an office boy in the employ of Henry, L. Ilobert dealer in syrups and rice at No. 120 Front street, for over a year. Yesterday he was stabbed to the heart and almost instantly killod while skylarking w ith one of the clerks in the store. It was a little before 3 o'clock when bis employer sent Chase to tbe hank to make a deposit. Be fore leaving the office boy stopped to chat with Jeremiah Cunning ham, one of tbe clerks, at a desk. The latter was eating some candy, when tbe office boy came along aud asked him for some. Cun ningham Is but a year older thau Chase, and betweeu them a strong friendship had always existed. "Where are you going!" asked Cunningham as he turned about in bis chair. "To the bank," answered Chase, "Theu buy some candy while you are out," said Cunningham mis chievously. Chase then picked np a ruler, and, flourishing it about bis head, made a playful .rush toward Cuii ningham. In the meantime Cun ningham. had taken a piece of candy from his pocket aud held it in his hand fegether with an eraser just as Chase stumbled against a six inch platform and fell heavily against the clerk. In falling the unfortunate office boy struck against the eraser, the tiny blade of which entered his breast and pierced the heart. Chase fell back, aud, putting his hands to bis eyes, cneu out, "UU, l can't see I" Cunningham sprang forward just tn time to catch Chase before he fell to the floor. The boy looked appealingly at his companion fora moment then closed bis eyea aud expired. He had died in tbo clerk's arms before the latter could place biuiiu tbe chuir. liether Xlasara (loser. Prospect House Niagara Falls, Out., November 8. It is some time since the mighty cataract has been the scene of such a terrilde casualty a that which happened to day, by which two men lost their lives in the sight of numerous spectators who were powerless to render them any aid. Twe respectable young Ger mans, one nsuied Adam Kilger- stein, employed by a butcher at Niagara Falls.nud tbe other, whose name cannot ha learned at present, engaged a smalt rowboat this af ternoon from Walter M in gay, at Port Day, for the purpose of row- iug across Niagara river to Chip pewa. Mingay asked them if they were fauiilliar wtih the river aud they said no, but that another mau who kuew the river was to accom pany them. However, they started out with out the third party and rowed up the river about half a mile, and tbe next seen of tbera they were making fur the Canadian shore. Instead of rowing at angles against the current they rowed straight across the river, the swift current slowly but surely drawing them down towards the rapids. Wheu about balf way across tbey were not more than 200 yards from the rapids, aud, as if seeming to realize their perilous position, they turn ed their boat around aud attempt ed to return to the American shore. In a few moments they were drawn into tbe rapids. They were seen clinging to the boat until with in a short distance of tbe brink ef tbe terrible abyss when the boat capsized and the unfortunate men wero carried over the great Horse shoe Falls. It has since been ascertained that the other German only came to tbe Falls from Buffalo on Fri day last, and was workiug for a baker. Tbe yily uame be was knowu by was August. The bodies will likely be found in the course of a few days-either in the eddies of the river or iu the whirl pool. One of the men was found. His right leg was missing, the left hand whs torn off and there was a cut on the back of the bead. Every bone in the unfortunate boy's body was broken as if It had pass ed through a mill. Road te Success, from as Address by Aairsw Carnofts. To summarize what I have said : Aim for the highest ; never enter a bar room ; do not touch liquor, or, if at alt, ouly at meals; never endorse beyond your surplus cash fund ; make the firm's interes yours; break order always to save owners; concentrate; put all your eggs in one basket, aud watch that basket; keep expenditure always within revenue; lastly, do not be impatient, for, as Emerson says, "no one can cheat you out of ultimate success but yourselves." .llrmyuls (umpiomlsfs With Last Creultor. tier War Betweea Servla ais Bilearla Belgrade, Nov. 11. It is olfieial lr auuousced that a force of Bul garians, oil Thursday, attacked a body of Servians, near Ylassina. The Servians returned tbe fire.

Where lolorrd People Cane 1'rem. There are few colored people iu tbis country, says a newspaper writer, who know from what Afri can tribes they sprang, and just where their ancestors lived in the dark continent, before they came to America in the hold of slave ships. By far the largest part of our African fellow citizens came originally from tbe dense forests of Senegambia, Liberia, and Guin ea, many from the low downs and lightly timbered region of the low er Congo, snd a much smaller number from the half sterile sea board ef Portuguese Angola. The further inland station of white slave dealers was at Boma, on the Congo, ouly sixty fivo miles from the ocean. The territory from which they tilled their slave pens extended inland only as far as Isanglia, Stanley's second station, one hundred and fifty miles from the coast. The American slave trade except in the Niger basin, was a traffic in coast negroes. Behind tbe mountain barriers that divide the low-lying seaboard from the plntcaus ot central Africa, dwelt millions of other and very different people whom Living stone and his successors have made kuowu to the world.

We are informed of a roysteri ous hanging which took place near the bridge across middle Fork, about ten miles east of Fayette, which evidently oec.it red on Mon day night. Ou Tuesday morning, travelers along the road just as they got this side of tbe bridge, were met by a ghastly sight a ne gro mau suspended from a limb, .who apparently bad beeu dead some hours. A piece of paper pinned to bis back bore these wsrds: "Our women must be pro tected." The victim did not be long to tbe neighborhood in which be was hung, and as be was nu kuowo the supposition was that he had beeu brought some dis tance. His crime can he guessel at from tbe words written on the paper. Since tbe above was iu type we learn that the crime a nameless one was uerpetrated ou a little 13 year old girl iu the Hominy Ridge neighborhood, ou the east ern border of the comity, and that the uegro was iu charge of a con stable on his way to Fayette wbeu a baud of men took bitu from tbe officer and hung him.

We have reached the conclusion on the railroad question that com. petition is more effectual than su pervision. Railroad compnnie will always become self adjusting where the former prevails, and protracted litigation always fol lows the latter and makes it com paratively inoperative. Macon Beacon. Tbe Beacon man overlooks the fact that railroad pools exist. Th town of Aberdeen thought it had competition when the I. C.

The railroads could agree upon pooling rates at com petiug points easier than they could compete, hence they pooled their interests and put np th freight. Chickasaw Messenger. One of the actions of the present Board of Supervisors upon which the members may pride themselves was the removal of tbe gate nui baNces from across the publ roads of this county. A more in defensible outrage upon the rights ef the public for the benefit of in dividuals was never perpetrated, or allowed to be, by law. It re quired some pluck, however, as well as a sense of public wrong, to decree the removal of these, "set fasts." Now that tbe time ap proaches for removing these gates from tbe highways' we understand a petition is being circulated to except "one road, at least,'' from the operation of the Board's or der. We hope the Board will hold fast and stand by what it bas done. Oue exception -will just be ground for another and so on. "The gates should go." Woodville Republican' AalitfresliBtEoissie.

He was greatly interest ed in our Pitcairu pistol and oth er relics, aud spent several hours looking about the town. To make the coincidence still more surpris- ug, bis wife, wbo accompanied him (an American lady), is a de scendant of Joseph Tidd who lived iutheoldTidd homestead, which is still standing in our town, aud whose sons, Benjamin and Johu, were in Capt. Parker's company on the 19th of April, 1775. It is related ef this John Tidd that be- ng one of the last to leave tbe Common, be was pursued by the British, struck dowu and robbed of his arms. At the same time his cousin, Lieut. William Tidd, re treating up Hancock street, was chased by a mounted officer (sup posed to bo Pitcairu), wbo rried out: 'Stop! or yon are a dead man.' The plucky Lieutenant sprang over a pair of burs near the Clark House, made a stand, took aim aud tired at his pursuer, who dodged the shot, wheeled about and hastened back to join his men. That a defendant of this 'Britisher' should after 100 years marry a de scendant of this 'rebel,' and that he two should come to-day with eagerness to see for the first time the spot where their ancestors fought against each other, is a fact as strauge as auythiug iu fiction, aud fully ns suggestive, for it tells us that tbe animosity which is born of strife is not to be always perpetuated.
