I' -- C An Indignant "Old Toper" Makes an Interesting Expose. I New York Grapllhic.] I aii in doubt als to yo(lr willingness Sto publish this lette--the complaint which I make in it may have no in treslt .to viyn; for all Ithat I knolw you Inay he an enthusiastic teetotaller, anld iUclinted ratiher to go inll tl tie pIiving every one iof what you 1do not Cale, frill to Ipermit an old toper like IliVstelf tio say a word inl favor of chealp driniking, aiind in exposure of the extorti0ns practiced upon the drinking public by the saloon keep ers. lHowever, I shall free my wmind upon the subject, which is really one of very extensive public importance, inld if you choose to throw moy letter into your waste-paper basket the tfhit n ill hae vurs and not mine. I speak, sir, in the name of a long sunifeling and surely wronged class of our citizens-the regular and steady dii, kers in this metropolis. Bread, sir, is cheap-cheap as it Wlas before the. war ; rents have come downii ; clothing is low ; wages are very low, all the necessaries and luxa ties of life-save the one I am about to mnention-are to be obtained at reasonable prices. But here are the saloon-keepers on Broadway and on the streets near the Post Office, charg I ing us war prices for our drinks. This is a cruel imposition, and I cry out againlist it. I invite yout attention to some stistatics \ hich I have taken care to 4,,4tain frlon the hIiighliest asources, and for ihe l uaccracy of lalicih I can voiich : Good rye or Bourbon whisky can be bought for $3 agallon. Much of ihat which is sold over the bars in the ordinary saloons costs no mn1le than this; some of it costs less. The very best does not cost over $4, and little of that is given. Any expe iieaiced barkeeper will tell you that 41 gallon of whiskey, retailed over tihe iar', produlces tfrom sixty to eighty dliiiks-iuore often the latter figure thanll thie former. Now look at it: 1 gallon whiskey ................ $3 00 80 drinks at 10 cents............ 8 0U Profit.....................5...5 00 Or, 1 gallon whiskey ................$4 00 80 drinksat 15 cents............ 8 00 Profit ........................$8 00 Even if we place the cost of the whisky at the highest price and the number of drinks at thle lowest, the in.et, in still excessive: 1 gallon . uiskej ......._...... .$ h O 80 drinks at 10 cent . ..... " 00 Profit .................4...... or exactly 100 per cent.! Is this not outrageous ? What would be thought of a butcher who charged 4ie. a pound for meat afhich cost himn 20c., or a baker who demanded 20c. for a loif that cost him JOc. or less than . lOc.? It may be replied, that meat , and bread are necessaries of life and that whisky is a luxury or worse, d and that the more one is made to pay for it the better it is. Ideny all tlhese proi'ositions, but I will not argue them here lest I should weary you. SWhat I assert is that the saloons are i 1ot in the interest of the Society for the Prevention of Vice; that the ex Stravagantly high plire charged for even whisky straight does not lesson t. its consumption; that it is-to men t like myselt and, as I believe, to a - vasct majority of tile populace-a , prime necessity, and that tilhe extor tiou of the saloon-keepers cannot be justified on moral or political econo mical grounds. But, sir, there is still a lower depth 'in the depravity of the saloon keep - era. Their extition on whinky straight is bad enough, but their x. charges for mixed drinks are still d, worse. I have iu my mind's eye two n saloons in the neighboihood of the Spost ofiice, the rates of ai hic I will 11 take for iillustration. At each of these ' places the charges for a St.'Croix sou. is 15c. Now, the cost of a St.. i Oroltx sour is Rum, it thme oafdme................... ,1415 ,juice, ice, sirgiir audl-a strniw berry or llackberry ...........I Total ........... ................ 5 For which "we are compelled to pay 15 cents, or 201) per cent. profit.

BIut I like to he on the safe side, so I have inot altered my tigures.

OUR WASIlNGTON LETTER. WAsutIixrox D. C., Oct :, 1878. The speech nimade by Senlator Con kliig at the New York Repuiblicatl State Convention was temairkable for what was in it and for what is not in it. It was remiarkable in thait he gives high promineilce to the Soutlih ern outilge delusion. I call this a delusionl, ftir, as the subject is under stiood by the aver'age Nortllern IIIan, it is a delusion. Thie whliole world knows thiiat in the South there has talwaiys existed, and probably always exist, a lmore summIary way ofset tling personial difficulties than in the Nuorth. When this is considered, wit I the turning loose upon establitlied society of four millions of ineducated beings who, kvith hardy an exception, have only the Nligiltest ideas of righit and wroiing, and the going South of thousands of adventurels, we may readily accounlt for all the "outrages" that have been actually conmuiitted, and we may do this without acttsillg the people of the South of cotinuued disloyalty to the Government But senator Conkliug not only sees noth ing but the "outrages," sees ogly one portion of the people responsible for them, and sees no relief possi le ex cept in unreasoning interfernece by the Federal Government. The people of the North, begin ning of late to understand that there are two sides to this outrage basiness, have decided that somiething else shall have consideration. In Maine, in Oregon, even in Vermont, the po popular desire is to drop the subject. Blaine and others are quick to see it. But Conkling, whatever else lie may have, has nto umore 3 nlmpatlhy with the people, or an understanding of them, than the firaudulent CalduffGiant had. He will go on utitil November, per hiaps, atnd theni find out, in loohking from thile windws of prospective re tireient that the people of New Youk rlae busy aboilt ufflirs iof their own. Thie speech of the Seuiator omuits any lefeleece to Mr. hayes or to tile nanner of his obtaining the otffice o President, or to the polcy of the ad winist-ation. This, of course, was done to make harmany in the Con vention possible. The Democratic Convention of the same State contented itself in denouo cing the fraud by which Hayes was inade President and endorsintg the State aduitinistration. The only State officer to be voted for is a Judge of the Couit of Aplpeals and the cati paignl, which is now fairly opetlie; will be fonght upon members of tihe Legislature and of Congress. Mr. Hayes and most of the meon -.. Or in. lutihqet i'-"n .sturned herr, and the hlegira was held on u ' Wednesday. It is officially an nounced that the public business has gotlne on sa isfactorily during the sum mier, through most of the Cabitet and fully otne-third of tlhe subordinates of each Departmtent lha e been away o= angaged on politica work. By and by we shall tind out how it is that these employes can b, spared for rad ical camtpaign work, while any Dem ocratic attempt to reduce expenses by reducing the numbes of clerks atnd mtinor officers is alowas resisted on the ground that the public business will sutfler, iVhat Ass. Sec'y. b Cornick was 6 moithls ago, Mr. Gorn Ii, of the Re publican Congressiona Comlmittee is niow. He is the man Wo will die if his name is not in the papers every day. There is no sp itl harm ic this, except that the c nslant read ing of Gtrham's name y persuade the people that Gorliat is the onuly man in the country. U il the cain paign is over we shall b e Gorliam in all the political news.

The good semns of goatle Samen ena*ged in it is she ijn th t lct thattit tihey wish to get rid of 1tnt hr as a leader. ''The weakness of the schemetij will be seern iwhlen we remielu her tlhat Senator I)avis is not in any s.nsE, a leader, an id has none of the qualities which fit men for leadership. l)issatisfied a ith the Bench, to w hichi the partial kindness of his friendl, President Lincoln t-hev ted him, he left it un hde, ('iicniilstatices whichi woul have u made the place doubly 'valiaile to ia lIlder miun. Entiier'ing Ihe Senate, lie certainly ftailed to ima;ke himself tfelt there.

Besides this, tihere is in tin fitness in the selec.Jtion, whiCh ca.;linet be overlooked, hi tf'h i ln. the- past' life( of the Senator. It is undeh.nstood thlat his aimple toirtnile w'as iIladei by loaning moniey Iti 110 the farmis of his agiiinltlll neighbors, anid forecloi iig a hen the day of misfortune caime to the borrower. The lanl:ing ofr money is not dishonorable, and the lender has, of course, a right to pro tect himself by the usual'legal means. built the facts in this case, if' they are as stated above, would not seenl to commendtal tile Senator, especially to the GIanger element. However, we Ilmay soo expect to5 hear the Seator' spoken of in this connection, iiandi it is not n.ite'iii to Deeii crats wheither this part of the opposition a ittempts to puh t hiim tol ward. tfollows Ihe lead of Ba llet, or selects silme olher candidate. If I were called upon to give advice to the Democrats of Mussaclhiuselts just nlow, I should advise Ihem to keele cool. Tlhis would be of advan lage to both, thoselll who held high carnival at H-urcester the other day, ii illand nominelll d a Reptli lican ifor Gove'rnor, and lto those who propose to meet at FauneiilI lil in a few dais. Famihi qua iiels are never pleasant, and, when they bncome dangeclons as well as disagreeable, it is high time fir all the comlbatants to cnsider tlheil ways. It is nit, in the first helace, likely that Massachusetts would suffter in her finainces, or that her tax es would bie higher, or her la" s be less thounughly executed, if Butler were made Governler, thlan IIlnd'r an administratilon of Mr. Talbot, or of the excellent gentlemen who will probably be nominated at Faneiul Hall. And taxes, always unpopular, are now not only burdenseome in Mas sachusetts, but almost unbearable. Gen. Butler's Democratic fi ends should remember, on their side, that many of the blessings that they an ticipate from his exertions as Gov ernor will be equally assured by the very flight which the dominant party feels at his candidacy. With Butler, and Buutlerism before their eyes they will certailly reduce expenses, cut off unnecessary offices, and introduce other refolrms which they would not otherwise have thought of. By all means let our Massachusetts Demo cratic friends keep cool. The end of the world is not at hand. If the Republican control the Wis consin Legislature this linter they will do a wise thing by electing Hon. Matt. H. Carpenter to the U. S. Sen ate in place of the soumewhat anti quated Mr. Howe. The lahitter's day of usefulness, if lie has had such a day, is past. He is wholly out of place,-as much so as Hannibal Ham lin, James Harlan or PIomeroy-in the Senate of to-day. Carpenter has ability, a sense of fairness, and is a very eloqueut man. If no Demo crat can be sent here, I hope tile Democrats of the State will do what tlhey can to elect Carpenter. ALBION.

If ia person is unwil ling to make a pIlitical soine;sault, thiechantge is etflected by degrees. ,lln as an independenlt and we will etdrse you. Still call yourself a Democrat and bring with you all the voters you can from your party, is the advice given and taken. By the tiilthe campaign is over, ithe independent candidate is in ac colrd with his political friends the Republicans, and alienated from his political opponents the Democrats. If lth has personal inftlnence he will ielldl ee his Democratic associates to Sti'p pot him and thus create a breach in tihe ranks of our party. There is no middle, debatable ground when there are tt o parties arrayed against each other, the one composed in the mrein of white peo ple, and the other in the main of black people. To act the part of an intiependent voter is pretty in theory, but it will lead the voter flout the panty lie formerly supported to the one lie had opposed. Bull-dozing, [Shreveport Times.] A special of the 26th from New Or leans to the Globe-Democrat, gives the following report of an interview between leaders of the Republican party and Gov. Nicholls: A committee of prominent Repub licans, including B. F. Joubert, C. C, Antoine, Collector Smith and J. G. Brown, waited upon Gov. Nicholls to-day with an earnest protest against the hanging of Dalton in West Fell clana, and the banishment of Blunt and Breda from Natchitoches at the first Republican meeting of the cam paign. The governor replied that he stands by his pledges, but declines to admit the intimuidation charged, hav ing no official information, communi cation being cut off by quarantine. The republican committee in private conversation expresses great bitter neess and disappointment. They say unless Nicholls will give some expres sion of opinion discountenancing bull dozing, there will be no Republicar canvass. How Blunt could make "intitnidp tion" out of his escapade here on 21st September, 1878, is not surprising to those who know the wiley ways of that individual. Of course the gov. ernor is right in declining to admit the "bull-dozing' charge"- lie would be blind to reason and common sense it hie could even think that the firing into a town, with threats to burn property and outrage women was "intimidation." All this the mob o negroesdid and threatened to do or that awful Saturday, and our readera will see from the evidence of Jacob; Davis and Tomr Smith (colored), pub lished elsewhere, that to burn and sliy is their normal desire. If those savage desires and fien. islh threats are "RHepttdican campaigi openings" it were well we prepared for serious work wheo we come t the body of the bueineSe . *- New Orleans, October 4.-Frank A.

The Enquirer, the orignal standard bearer of the greenback policy, pater nally says of the Ohio National State Convention at Columbus: "It was a convention of well-meaning but mis guided and mistaken men. Their op portunity lies within the Democratic organization. They might labor ill their separate capacity for a genera tion without accomplishiiig so much in the direction they pursue as the Democratic party has accomllished within one year. There is not a shadow of an excnse for the existence of a Greenback-Labor party in Ohio outside of the Democratic party. The platform adopted yesterday at Colum bus is proof of the fact. The Ol1o idea is afloat. The "Nationals" 3es terday at the Ohio Capital favored the policy of taking the idea of4 fromu a great, splendid ship, and putting it in a skiff in said ocean and starting it for harbor.
