SATURDAY JULY 6, 1878. Herald Steam Printing House. Tbs Herald Steam Priming House Is not surpassed by any Job Printing offlce OB the Pacific Coast, outside of San Fran cisco, iv facilities for doing Job work, Liw prices, good work and expedition may be relied upon at this office. The testimony of Emile Weber before the Potter Committee shows Ihe nature of the machinery of the Republican politicians of tbe South Which has been used for years "to tire the Northern heart." After testifying that he had seen the letter alleged to have been written by John Sherman to bis brother and Anderson, that he was familiar with Sherman's handwriting, that the letter was in Sherman's hand ' writing;, and that his brother and Anderson really believed that East and West Feliciana had been fairly carried by the Democrats, and that they afterwards permitted them selves to be Induced by tbe"Vis iting Statesmen " to swear to a lie asseverating the contrary, Weber was shown a letter which he had written to a cousin in tbe East with a view to its publication. In this letter he stated that his broth er had been murdered from politi cal motives and told a pitiful tale of the wretched plight in which the Republicans of Louisiana toned themselves. He admitted writing the latter, but confeesed that it was a tissue of falsehoods from beginning to end. He stated that bis brother had been murdered by personal and not by political enemies, and that the letter was written with the object of influenc ing Northern public sentiment to eustain tbe Packard government. It was on manufactured melodra matic stuff of tbis kind, without an element of fact to sustain it, Weber says, that the partizans of Packard h relied to win tbe recognition of the National authorities and the sym pathy of the people. Of course his confession relegates Weber to tbe company of the execrable band of rogues who crop tip at every stage of this inquiry as the wretches whose forgery and perjury placed Hayes in Ibe White House, and 4 yet his sworn confession has much more the air of truth than the sen sational trash he admits having wiltten to the East at the time when tho Nichols-Packard con troversy was uncertain as to its isene. What a curious contrast there is between the ttatssineu or the old days anil the present, on the assumption that Rutherford 11. Hayes, John Sherman and Stanley Matthews are entitled to this at one time distinguished appellation? Only fancy Washington, Jefferson, Madison or even old John Adams, accepting an office to which they knew they were not electfd! Im agine these men filling the offices in their gift with persons instru mental in putting them in exalted place by the basest acts of forgery perjury. Imagine any of the old time worthies relyiug for ex culpation from persoual and politi cal taint of dishonor on tbe tongue of a glib woman, whose every flippant phrase bespeaks the ad venturess or worse, and who be gins her gauzy story by an admis sion that she bus committed a for ' ffery of John Sherman's name. The whole tableau is so astonish ing that it is little wonder that nearly tiie whole Republican press are employing all their energies in bellowing that the Potter Investi gation is without result and will be a bootless thing. This is all very well in their mouths, but tbe sober second thought of the people is busy with the reflection that if - what we have all seen is the out come of a party which bat preteu tiously assumed to have all the "decency" and to be the "God and morality" parly,the sooner that or ganization is indefinitely retired from power the better. The Re publican party has attempted one juggle too many with the intelli gence of the masses, as the Kail Congressional elections will show. In view <f Ilie fact that the aver age vote for oaudldutes on tbe Non- Partizau ticket ranged only about eight thousand in Ban Francisco, tbe 10,277 votes receiveJ by Col. J. J. Ayerg Iv thai city is a very handsome compliment to that gen tleman, if, in addition, Col. Ayers had received the 3,155 votes cast for Dr. Shorb, straight Djniocrat, be would have run quite up to the average of tbe VVorkingmeu's can didates iv the Oolden Gate. As it is he ran two thousand ahead ofthe average of the Non-Partizan ticket. Hal it not been for the circulation J of tho Mer< ed straight Democratic ticket in the Fourtli District, and particularly for its general distri bution in Los Augeles and Sau Diego counties, Col. Ayers would have made a notably brilliant run iv Southern California. As it was, he ran largely ahead of bis ticket iv many sections. Iv San Diego be had to contend against % straight Democratic and a LMraigbt Republican ticket. The f*eople cjrvfbat county were largely to him, aud Ihe exteu ,ve circulation of the straight u;kets confused the issue. Col. jers even ran three hundred and gfty-three votes ahead of Hon. OVOD Waters In Han Francisco, although that gentleman was on the Merced ticket, and about two thousand ahead of Gen. Mansfield who, we believe, was on the straight Republican ticket. As we have said, the result is a compliment which cannot fall to be gratifying to our brother quill. Few properly constituted people envy Rutherford B. Hayes Hie spleudors of the White House. We have no doubt that if the option were again tendered to him of al lowing Mr. Tilden to occupy the position to which the people elected him, the Ohioan would gladly re main iv his pleasant homestead at Fremont. If Mr. Hayes had elected to do right at lirst; if he had firmly announced to his partizans tliat the will of the people must be respected and that he "would rather be right than he President," the fraudulent President would now be almost the most honored man iv the United States. No conjuncture of human events, short of hia death, could have prevented his being elected President in 1880. Both putties would have been emulous to do him honor. But, iv uu evil hour, he weakly surrendered his convictions of right, yielded to the temptations of ambition, and the estimation in which he is held, at h >mo and abroad, is hap pily expressed by the Pall Mall Gatette (English; of June Utb. We quoit: It Is tho conduct of Mr. Hayes since his attainment of power that is now Ihe most painful subject of contemplation for patriotic Ameri cans. A ruler may stop on the safe side of impeachment and yet be guilty of acts by which he justly forfeits tbe confidence of the gov erned. When President Hayes was raised to the supreme authority by tbe decision of the Electoral Com mission, the majority of the Amer ican people were probably con vinced that a wrong had beeu dove, but they were unwilling to believe that the I resident was In any way a parly to it. But if lha evidence taken within the past fortnight be fore the Committee of Inquiry be not a mass of malignant perjury, it appears that the men whom the President selected to rill the highest offices In the Slate were directly implicated in tbe corrupt transac tions by which the votes of Louis iana and Florida were taken away from Mr. Tilden. Unless Secretary Sherman and Senator Matthews, and the Ameri can Ministers at Paris, Vienna, and St. Petersburg are able lo prove that they are the victims of con spiracy, it must be acknowledged that the purification of politics of which the Hayes administration boasted lias made little progress by comparison even with the worst Seilod of Gen. Grant's rule. If it c suggested that the President was ignorant of the part which his friends played In tho counting of tbe votes In Louisiana and Florida, the answer will be that there are limits to human credulity. Mr. Hayes, it may be admitted, was justified iv believing that his friends—Mr. Sherman, Mr. Mat thews and the rest—did nothing during their visit to the South that , was inconsistent with the strictest honor. But he can scarcely have been ignorant of the repute in which the local Republican agents and the members of the Returning Boards were held, or of the popular impression that those persons had deprived Mr. Tilden of his majority by fraud. Yet Mr. Hayes, while professing the warmest zeal for civil seivice reform, went out of his way to offer high aud lucrative offices to men who, when they now appear to testify against the Re publican cause, are denounced by tbe Republicans as unworthy to be believed ou oath. Every reader of newspapers re members the story of Ells* Pinks ton, delivered with every conceiva ble melo-dramatlc aoeoinpauiment at the time the Louisiana Return ing Board, emboldened by the "Visiting Statesmen," was com pleting its villainous counting out of Tilden. Eliza's wounds were dwelt upon with more lhan the minuteness employed by Mark Au touy over the body of Ciesar when he sought to work up (be Roman populace to the proper pitch of sympathy with the dead an d iudig nut in i against his murderers. Ac cording to Eliza's story the Lou isiana White Leacners killed her husband because lie was a Repub lican ami they only failed to kill herself on account of her excessive toughness. Before giving up the effort as hopeless, however, they fired oil all their surplus powder and ball into her prostrate body, dulled every axe iv the neighbor hood iv a vain attempt to crush in her skull and dragged her a mile or two with a ropj round her neck, leaving her for dead. This "raw head and bloody boiie»" story was telegraphed all over the country in order that, under cover of it, the great electoral fraud might be con summated with as little observa tion as possible. John Sherman was the sponsor of this Eliza Pinkston cauarj. Eliza has now made a sworn con fession in which she states that two promineut Republicans of Lou isiana paid her $500 for perjuring herself. Four hundred and fifty dollars of this sum she rashly en trusted to a Louisiana Republican, and it is hardly necessary to say that she will never Bee it again. Tbe fifty dollars she clung to are all that Eliza bas enjoyed of the fruits of her crime. She now swears that Pinkitou was killed by another ne gro whom he had twice whipped; and, as for her own injuries, they were purely the figments of her Imagination, the woman never having been iv the slightest de gree molested. Tin: defeat of the Workingmen's party proves to be far more over whelming than anticipated. They will bave but a third of the Con ventlon. But half the votes of the State were polled, and yet the Workingmen have proved to be iv a decisive minority of a fractional vote. It is safe to uptime that every man In sympathy with Ihe Workingmeu's movement voted, while immense numbers of Repub licans and Democrats declined lo go to the polls through disgust at the disorganized condition in which their respective parlies were left by the party leaders. Through this disgust many Democrats and Republicans Voted Ihe Working men's ticket us a rebuke to the ma- 1 chine politicians. When, with all these favorable circumstances, a new |-any rolls up but h fractiou of a fractional vote its outlook cannot bo truthfully described as being very l.rilliant. Judge Thompson does not bear defeat wilh the stoclcism we should expect from a veteran politician. Iv his speech the other evening lie denounced the press of Ibis cily with great virulence, wo are in formed. Now as we were careful to fay nothing whatever about Judge Thompson during tbe can vas?, aud as we have uniformly treated the Workiugnien's move ment with great consideration, we are just the least little hit sur prised at this ill temper. We do not see how the Judge can hold the press responsible for his lack of popularity amongst the Working men. He must look deeper mid nearer home for the cause of his political misadventure. LAST NIGHT'S NEWS. |»p*ctal to the Herald by the Weaterii (Tnton Telegraph Company.l Pacific Coast News. Boji Drowueit—Mall I<i,Me I ■ ,'-> Varieties. San Francisco, July 5 —Yester- day afternoon two boys were drowned in lake San Andreas, Sau Mateo county. Willie Munds, aged 14 years, and I. Reiden, aged 9 years. The boat capsized and the two boys could not swim. The father of young Munds was in tbe boat and narrow ly escaped drowning himself. Three men be sides the hoys were In the boat. Fourteen men and boys were fined five dollars each fur firing bombs on the 4th. Yesterday a fight occurred be tween two gangs of hoodlums in Hayes valley, during which a young man named Hosford had ills nose almost cut off aud was se verely hacked about the face and neck, some ofthe wounds being iv dangerous proximity to the jugular vain. Mrs. Lambert, No. 433 Jessie "Mreet, while building a fire iv her kitchen stove for the purpose of cooking dinner, noticed that two pieces of kindling wood appeared to be glued together. Shortly after the fire was lighted an explosion occurred which demolished the stove anil scattered the burning wood about the room. An exam ination was made of tho pile of kindling wood and other pieces glued together were found. Upon separating the sticks a charge of coarse blasting powder was found placed in a small place dug out of the wood. Two fifteen year old hoodlum; were arrested at Woodward's Gar dens yesterday for picking the pockets of two persons. The purses were found on one of them, but the money had been abstracted. gnu I r.n.cisco MarllClS, San Francisco July sth.—Flour dull and unchanged.

Camp Lester, Mouth of South Fork of John Day River, July 2 — The following is official: Hostiles crossed the John Day river near this point on Sunday, June 30th, and are now in Fox valley. The indication are that the hostiles will cross Snake river near the moulh of the Grande Ronde, keeping In their journey under cover of the forests of the Blue Mountains. The country through which the troops have followed them from Camp Curry to this place is the most rug ged imaginable. If Wheaton lias re ceived the orders sent him he will be ready with his force toencuin ter the hostiles as they emerge from tbe mountains. The citi zens skirmished with the Indians on Saturday, June 29th, and had one man killed. On Sunday the Indians murdered two men in tbis valley and burned three houses. Bernard presses them so close that they had no timo to depredate further. Howard will move slowly to give Wheaton time to get into position. Every exertion has been made but pack trains were not ob tainble and to bring wagons over the mountains, which are rugged and precipitous, is deemed impos sible. The foot troops carried two days'supplies on their backs and marched thirty miles over this rugged country to-day. There will be no light for some days, as How ard cannot tell whether Wheaton is ready to intercept them. Latest Eastern News. rue osmm4 itscer-aiafs itac ■ B ,iv lloraes overcome uj Ueal. New York, July 6tb.—The Her ald has the following from Louis ville: The day was intensely hot and close and tbe track very heavy. The marc set out at a pace to kill the big horse, both running about thirty or forty feet from tbe pole. A fter going two and oue-half miles the mare began to weaken and when passing the stand the third lime she was very much distressed. After passing the half-mile pole on the last mile she began to reel and was stopped before reaching the quarter-pole and with difficul ty could be brought to the Judge's stand. The excessive heat bad been telling on her lately and the close, hot day was too much for her. Tenbroeck was much dis tressed and could not have gone a second heat. [Signed] M.

Houses and bridges were washed away and crops greatly damaged. At Sandy Creek village, twelve miles above this city, the water rose to a depth of four feet andcariied everything before it.

Two hundred magistrates were present. The Mayor offered resolutions, which were adopted, regretting that the Orange associa tion persisted in its determlnat on to celebrate in Montreal an event distasteful to a majority of its in habitants; declaring it unwise aud inexpedient to call out the military, except wheu civic forces are inade quate, and recommending that the Mayor issue at once a proclama tion to forbid all assemblages or gatherings on the streets or other public places on the 12th of July and calling upon citizens to aid tbe authorities to maintain the peace. A resolution that the authorities be empowered to call out the mili tary, brought on a long and excit ing discussion. Finally it was de cided, 4to 7, that the magistrates having full confidence in tbe Mayor, placed in bis bands all power and authority to preserve the peace on the 12th. European Cable News. The la t.-runilouat lIOMt ttnce. London, July Mb, —The Colum bian having won the only boat race ever gained by an American crew in Kugland, are the heroes of Hen ley. The superb forms they have shown the past two days surpassed even their best friends. At tiie start for the Anal beat for the Vis itors' Challenge Cup to-day, the Columbia crew dipped oars .first and took the lead, rowing a tre mendous stroke. At Fawley Court boat bouse tbey were a length ahead of tho Hertford boat. Near ing Remenhara, tbe Hertfords liv ing under instructions from shore, spurted and reduced the Colum bian' lead lead to half a length, but opposite Remenbam farm house the Columbia* increased their spec I, again recovered their positiou and were able to take tiie Hertford*' water the same as the day before, notwithstanding the Hertford's frantic efforts lo prevent it. Hert ford's only hope now was to catch the Columbia boat by touching it and thus claim a foul. Columbia's boat being out of its own water, Goodwin perceived the danger and called ou the men for a further spurt aud they answered wilh a tremendous burst of speed, which sent them ahead fully two longths and a half. The speed was so great that it completely exhausted the Hertford*, whose bow dropped his oar almost fainting. The others were also completely " pumped" and the boat, not being steered, ran ashore. Columbia coutinusd, fin ishing ttie course amidst ringing cheers from the shore, iv eight minutes and four seconds. In the final race for the Stew ard's cup there was some delay caused by Ihe Shoewaecamette's eagerness to get away, but when the signal was given the Loudon Rowing Club, who got off well, made for the Berks shore, getting iuto stlil water, the wind to-day being favorable for boats ou the Berks side. The Shoe's went straight down the middle, getting tbe advantage of the first one hun dred yards and leading the Lon don's half a length. The latter crew rowed without fault and at Fawley Court by a spurt led the Shoe's by a quarter of a lenglh. This challenged the Shoe's, who had been rowing forty-four strokes, and they increased the number to forty-eight. Both crews approached Poplar Point at a terrific rate on almost even terms. .Suddenly the London's shot ahead a length in a mysterious manner and It was soon seen that something was the mat ter In tbe Shoe's boat, but no oue was prepared to see the latter crew stop short, apparently used up. After pausing a few seconds the Shoe's went on slowly, Moses Nadeau aud Dewltt pulling the boat alone. Joseph Nadeau was completely doubled up. The cause of their defeat was soon explained. Nadeau had beeu seized with a violent diarrhoea this morning and after a practice pull his condition became worse, but he pluokily refused to listen to a prop osition to withdraw from the race. At the conclusion of the beat the other three men came in not at all annoyed by their terrible struggle. What there was of the race was the hardest ever rowed at Henley. The Londons' time was 8 minutes 28 seconds. The Shoes at first ac cepted their defeat with nonchal ance, but once at their quarters they fairly cried at their bitter dis appointment. They will probably go to London o.i Tuesday and sail on the Utopia for home July 17th. Geo. W. Lee, of Newark, contem plates remaining to compete at the Metropolitan regatta for Ihe sculls now held by Playford. Lord Camoys, in presenting Ilie prizes, complimented the Columbi ans ou their pluck in coming over, and hoped they would come again. The Columbian dined with (lie Trinity College crew and were af terward received at an entertain ment given by tbe London Rowing Club. They will come to London to-morrow and after a few days will separate. The Eaalerti rsiitrm. London, July sih.—At Thurs day's sitting of Ihe Congress it was settled that monks of all nationali ties inhabiting Mount Athos should have equal privileges. The only reservation as to the Danube is that Russia, whilst acknowledg ing the enliie freedom of naviga tion of that river in time of peace, will not admit such freedom iv timo of,war. Tbesurervision of the exist ing commission Is (o be main ttined, with its jurisdiction extend ing to Galatz. lv the discussion as to the division of (lie Sardjak of Sophia, Russia admitted that tbe Icbtsmau Pass, with itsstroug line of defense, should be assigned to Roumelia; but in the discussion of the|Engtlsb demaud that Roumelia should receive five of the districts into which tbe Sardjak of Sophia should be divided, became so warm that the representatives of France, Italy and Germany intervened with a compromise, which contem plates nearly an equal division be tween Roumelia aud Bulgaria. As, however, the retention of the Icbtsman line of Roumelia is the principal aim of England, this question will probably cause uo further difficulty. Tiie English press is unanimous, even including the Daily News, in objecting to the cession of Rat totim. The Conservative organs are very discontented with the re sults of the Congress, but they all regard the danger of rupture as ob viated. NEW TO-DAY. C H X A.
