In tbo Quaker City a Republican majority ranging from | twenty-five to thirty thousand was s swept away, not a remnant being Mt ef It, and a Democrat being L aJaattd Mayor. In tho East, tbe i Other day, amongst the Innumsra || Mi) MUniolpal elections, Mayors won sleeted In Cincinnati and St. '* litßl* Strangely enough tbe Re !' ooAUoan oily of Cincinnati elected \ m Democratic Mayor, while the Oomooratle olty of St. Louis elected '<■■ a Bspoblioan Mayor. It will be hard fer tho machine politician, -hereafter, to rule the roast. It will § stood tho open sesame of personal v botMsty and responsibility, in tbe good time eomlng, to open the door if ofsjslss to the citizen of tbe United ft Bona time ago we stated, on tbe authority of General Superintend ent A. N. Towne, that the South •rn Paoiflo Railway intended to i posh tbolr railway ont to deep water la Wilmington harbor. Col. Charles Crocker, tbo other day, in , foraaed several citizens of Loi An geles that work would be begun at ones on tho proposed extension, and stated tbat tho material for that purpose bad already boon pur chased. . This wIU be a substantial •vldenee of faltb In Wilmington I harbor, and hereafter onr people ' will doubtless bave a powerful ally In tbo Southern Pacific Rail way In tbeir efforts to Impress ■pen Congress tbe wisdom and ex podienoy of liberal appropriations to complete this great work, which is really one of national import asms and magnitude. As a harbor of refuge alone, to say nothing of Its commercial facilities, Congress would be justified in making four fold tho appropriations ever asked from that body. No party over pot itself into s ■sore absurd or a more indefensi ble plight tban the Republican In bringing about tbe Senatorial dead* look, and snubbing their own President before be was warm lo Us seat, all to enable it to work out • disgraceful bargain with the ren egade Democratic Senator Mabone, aad empower bim to make a rene gade Republican named George C. Gorham Seoretary of tbe Senate aad one Riddlebsrger, a repudiat ing and renegade Virginia Demo crat, Sergeant-at-Arms. Tbe San Praociso Alta, of tbo sth inst,, sommoating on tbis transaction, Tory ouriously says: It may bo a necessity now to ooatlnue tbo deadlock in the Sen ate, but it oertainly was not a wise political mora which brougbt tbe Republican side of tbe Senate Into snob a position. It is unfortunate tbat tbo Senate Is evenly divided, and it is unfortunate tbat men atandlng In tbe place of statesmen oannot better appreciate what is ■ssssssry snd what Is proper as a »attey. With the ususl inconsistency of our vanorable old grandmother of tbe press, the Alta, after making tha foregoing admissions, proceeds to berate tbe Southern Democrats. The logic of its position is that It is wrong to begin a thing; bot, having begun It, tbe wrong must be given continuity aad extension. This is the atti tude of tbe Kentuoky witness who, on being told that be had said tbe horse was sixteen feet high, eaid, with an air compounded of regret and determination In equal parts tbat, having made tbe statement, be was prepared to stick to it. Lower down our San Francisco contemporary says: Summsd up, tbe figbt iv tbe Senate Is over :he question: Shall George C. Gorham be Clerk, and Blddleberger Sergeant-at-Arms? A assail matter to fight about. No, It is not a small matter. The disgraceful bargain which under lie* tbo whole vile and trading proposition makes it a very big matter indeed. finna bis recsnt visit Col. Charles Crocker, President of tbe •eathern Pacific Railway, labored Ie Impress neon onr business men the advisability of retaining in tbis sWotton tbe trade or Arixona aa to Ml the aell products of Les Angeles •Maty. Tbere oan be no doubt of the willingness of tbe Boatbem fkwtie te cordially co-operate with t sw» tcoels la this endeavor. Wo fcaee to recognise the faot that the AtehfesM, Twpeka and Santo Fe Ij alter tbla state of tne foots. On the other band, we have the ad vantage that Arizona It settled principally by Callfornlans, wbo sympathize with the State from whioh they ball, and who desire, all otber things being equal, to trade with the merchants and pro ducers of tha Golden State. We have no hesitation In expressing our belief tbat tbe Southern Pacific Railway will champion the pro- ducers of Us own section, and tbat business conferences by our pro ducers with the officers (f that company will result in a thorough entente cordial. As te through freights, foe some time to come, owing to tbe lack of a cordial un derstanding between Ibe two com panies, matters will be, ao to speak, chaos. The general opinion, and it Is a natural one, tbat two reads whioh have been approach ing each otber for years, when tbey reached tbe point of junction, would have a perfect agreement on all points relating to freights and fares, bas proved to be an error in this instance. As a matter of faot, aa respeots tbe former, no agree ment baa yet been reached. As to Arlsona at least Southern Califor nia producers ought to bold the in terior lines. In tbe height of tbe indignation at the Debris swindle, which ie beyond all question tbe most threatening and gigantio tingle spoliation over undertaken in any State of tbe American Union, It should not be forgotten that ths State Board of Engineers Is doing an admirable routine work wblob ought, by all means, to be contin ued. The corps of Engineers, headed by Mr. Schuyler, wbo were engaged in surveying tbe streams of Southern California, gauging their surface waters and estimat ing tbeir subterranean flow, and oaatlng about for reservoir facili ties, bave done a valuable and in dispensable work. These gentlemen are now "licking" into shape the immense mass of materials col lected by tbem, and getting ready for tbe preparation of an elaborate series of maps which will be of tbe first importance In an intelligent comprehension of the Irrigating facilities of Southern California. It would be au inexcusable mis take—a gross blunder, indeed —to attaob to the scientific labors of these gentlemen any of the just odium whioh adheres to tbe Debris infamy. Tbe Just and legitimate expenses of tbe Engineer's Depart ment ought to be provided for by the Legislature. We very muob regret that this body was mixed up in any wise witb the Debris ghouls. It is a lamentable fact that large portions of the Siora mento valley are threatened witb overflow. If bydraulie mining were totally suspended to-morrow, physical conditions already exist which, within a space of twenty years, will, In all likelihood, pile sand up to ths first story windows ef the State Capitol, and which will compel Marysville and Sacra mento to change tbeir sites. Tbe debris foolery, lo the face of these inexorable conditions of nature, is like piecing a straw to obstruct a mill stream, like King Canute whipping the waves or Mrs. Partington mopping up tbe Atlantic ocean. Jobbery and fatuity characterize the De bris measures; but some good work, whioh ought to be utilized and perpetuated in practical shape, has been done by the State Board of Engineers. The Just and mod erate appropriations needed to en able tbat body to complete its good work should be accorded by tbe Legislature. Draw Poker in Paris. [Spirit of tbe Times.] Io tbe spheres of higher Paris gaming, draw poker has obtained a foothold, though only within ths last few months, and in these lat ter circles it is treated in a manner muoh more orthodox* tban among tbo frolicsome artists and idlers of Mon tmartre, It waa at one of these ceremonious sittings, in a oosey little club, not far from tbe Plaoe de l'Opera, tbat tbo writer wit nessed a band worthy to he con signed to poker annals. There were five players, the game admit ting of a very high limit, and, on a jack pot being opened, four of tbe five players "went In." After due drawing, tbe wagering ran high, and It was evident that large bands were out. Three or four limits, bet in rapid succession, drove out two of the players, who parted respectively from three of a kind and from a little full. Or the otber two players, ons, ths opsner or the pot, bad drawn to three nines, and had obtained tbe feurtb; be was, of course, determined not to lay down suoh a collection as tbis, and returned bis adversa ry's shots wltb all the more confi dence tbat tbo latter bad drawn to four cards, and bs suspected him of merely holding a flash. And a flush was, sursly enough, the head announoed by tbe drawer to four when at last there was a call, to wbieh tbo gentlemen of tbe four nines negligently responded by tbe mention "Qaartre nenfa ?" "Yes, bat wait a moment," said bis ad versary; "my flush Is a straight one—and high." All negligence oa tha otber side very suddenly disappeared: the fonr nines wore relinquished, and tbeir bolder, aat gaslng at a remarkably pretty tethering of aos, king, queen, ■eve and ton of club*. The for tunate p oss—or of thla extraor dinary hand had taken a shore In a Jack pot, drawing for queen of oleee, aad bad got it. After tbis LAST NIGHT'S NEWS.

It is statsd tbat tbs President will uss his power to break the dead lock if it lasts much longer. ■asaer. I Washinoton, April 6th.—The positions taken by Senators Sher man aad Bayard In their elaborate speeches to-day have brought into bold rslior the fact whioh bad pre viously been less apparent, tbat the present contest In tbe Senate is praotieally a contest between the two great political parties fer the election of tbe next United States Senator from Virginia. The peo ple of tbat Stato will next fall elect not only a Governor, Judges of tho Oourt of Appeals and othsr Stato officers, but also the Legisla ture Which, In loot, ie to licet Sen ator Johnston's cusosssor, to takt his scat ia March, 1888. It U gen etvJly bettered by beth'nejrtlehla Sergeant-at-Arms, Involving an extension in behalf of the Republi can party of both material and moral aid to the proposed coalition of Re-adjustere and Republicans In Virginia, would almost certainly Insure the sucosss of the coalition and result in tbs complete over throw of tbe regular Democracy In the old Dominion. A rumor la afloat and credited in some quarters, tbat If the dead lock eontinueo much longer tbe President will convene the Forty seventh Congress in extra session. Tbe report is probably intended to frighten the Democrats into yield ing the Senate patronage for fear of losing tbe House patronage, wblob, unless an extra session sbould be oalled, tbey will continue to enjoy until next December. It Is now pretty definitely known tbat Presi dent Garfield approves tbe stand taken by the Republicans of tbe Senate and tbis belief is etrongly corroborated lately by the fact that his closest friends In tbe Senate bave opeuly advised the present programme aud also by the Presi dent's own utterances this morn ing, when be expresssd himself warmly in favor of the proposed alliance of Virginia Republicans with the party of Senator Ma hone. MAHONE. Persons! H atorj of tht Virginia Santtor. IWusli. Letter ia Cleveland lierald ] Happening to be In Virginia two years ago thla coming summer, at one of tbe reeorts overlooking the beautiful valley of tbe Shenan doah, I was treated to a near and unprepossessing view of the great ''Re-adjuster," whose fame bas gone iuto the groceries and bar rooms of out-of-the-way Virginia towns and crept into the flavorless, aimless gossip of those summer hives—"tbe Springs." People were divided as to his merits as statesman and politician, but be had been true to the Confederacy, bad fought her battles aud shared tbe victories, short-lived, but none tbe lees dear to every Southern heart, and so the day of bis com ing was an eventful one in the an nals of our sleepy summer resort. There were bands, banners and visiting delegations of Virginians to do honor to the man tben agi tating Virginia politics, and when he came aud was fairly set before our eyes, where were all the pre conceived notions of the mush lauded bero ? Certaiuly it was not tbe flue figure and commanding presence of anybody's dreams that we realized, but a little wlzensd man, so thin and nervous that be might bave bad an anatomy of wire and steel springs worked by a battery, instead of the bone, mus cle, flesh and blood of the rest of mankind. His pale, deeply-lined face was surrounded by a shock of gray balr and straggling beard, and shrewdness and determination looked cut of tbe small, brilliant eyes. His dress was one that would haw- damped bim as eccen tric in any t liuunity. Ilia low quartered shu.a were tied with broad black velvet ribbon, a broad flaring oollar falling over bis shoulders looked like an attempt at Juvenility, and his suit of light gray fitted bis diminutive figure like tbe badly, shrunken clothes of a school-hoy. No one seeing bim could have guessed tbat this was a leader of men. Away wltb your bulky heroes— your avoirdupois estimate of great men. Here is one who has never weighed a hundred, and yet be has battled with armies, been Presi dent of a railroad and made a for tune. Senator Mahone's early life was that of many men who have gone through privations and hard ships to success—a series of strug gles, In which, no doubt, some of the inherited traits of his Irish parentage came into play. He waa born in Southampton oounty, Vir ginia, in 1838. His parents were very poor and his early education very limited. For some years be carried the mail on horsebaok, and then mastered enough of tbe rudi ments of learning to teach school. Hie energy and ambition com mended bim to tbe good graces of a wealthy gentleman, wbo had bim entered as a pupil In the Vir ginia Military Institute, from which he graduated witb distinc tion. First and last bo seems to bave had much to do with rail roads. He was at ene time an en gineer on the Orange and Alexan dria road, and later was chief engi neer of tbe Norfolk an 1 Peters burg Railroad. He distinguished himself as a Confederate General in the war and enjoyed the entire confidence of Gen. Lee, with whom belaid down bis arms at Appomattox, tbe division which be commanded con stituting about one-fourth of tbe feroe which surrendered tbere. At the close of the war he turned bis shrewdness and genius for management lo acoount by manipulating the State's in terest, amounting to about 56, --000,000, In a certain railroad, and negotiating a loan of $15,000,000 on the consolidated lines from Nor folk to Bristol, Term. As a consid eration he received $25,000 a year for five years as president of the consolidation, and tben, at tbe ex piration of his term ot office, re signed, leaving tbe road, acoording to the testimony of tbe English re ceiver, involved, while he lost nothing. Criticism and censure followed tbo retiring president, and while tbere are many wbo believe his administration of Its affairs to have been a steady and consistent feathering of bis own nest, tbere are still many who believe in his disinterestedness. He Is desorlbed as a very mo thodlcal, industrious man, studious and exaotlng in bis requirements of others, but affable and sociable In manner, and hospitable in tbe true Virginia style. He haa a fine reeldence in Petersburg, Virginia, wbere bis family rssldes. Ho bas two sons and a daughter old enough to take their plaoes in sool ety at the capital, and bis wife, a very aocompllsbed woman, who ia the exaot contrast to ber diminu tive husband physically, wsighlng over 200 pounds, waa tbe daughter of Mr. Butler, formerly treasurer ef Virginia, and a beauty In bar day. Senator Mabono is by all odds tbe most sooentrlo and notice able man In the Senate, and, next to Alexander Stephens, the small est man who bas ever boon In Con-. Sress. His bight Is about five feet to loobcs. On a postcard on view at an ex hibition in Goraaany there had been written In a Gorman system of shorthand tho largo nambor of shorthand magazine, offered prices for miniature sborthtnd. Ths sys tem was to be Pitman's, the writ ing to be legible to tho naked eye, nod to be on ons side of an Eng lish postcard, whioh is considera bly smaller tban a German oard; 26,000 words on tbs former being reckoned equivalent to 83,000 on tbo latter. Tbo first prise In this competition was awarded to G. H. Davidson, whose postoard con tained 32,868 words, Including tbe whole of Goldsmith's "Sbe Stoops to Conquer," an essay on John Morley, and half of Holcrofi's "Road to Ruin." Tbe Viennese are nearly as much addicted to gambling in tbe public lotteries as the population further south, and as tbe death of an ec clesiastical dlguitary is supposed to bays a mysterious conneotlon with tbe ohanoesof the lottery, a rush was made on tbe ticket offices during tbe two days following the death of the Cardinal Archbishop. The favorite numbers were 10, tbe year of his birtb; 81, tbe year of blsdsatb; and 71, tbs years of bis age. There was scarcely a combi nation hazarded without at least one of these numbers. Next to these in favor came those indicat ing the day, bour and minute of his death. Fortune on this occa sion, however, did not favor tbe superstitious. None of tbe above wero drawn, but after the drawing it was observed that 4, one of tbe numbers tbat came out, represent-i ed tbe ysars of his arch bishoprics. Tbe custodianship of Queen Vic toria's gold pantry at Windsor Castle, just rendered vacant by tbe death of Mr. Goring, Is an offloe of great trust, ac may be inferred from tbe fact tbat when the Queen entertained tbe Emperor of Rus sia, shortly after tbe marriage of tbe Duke and Duchess of Edin* eurgb, gold plate to tbe value of some $10,000,000 is said to bave been used. At a rougb guess, the royal gold and silver services at Windsor Palaoe are probably worth about $16,000,000. NEW TO-DAY. Ladies' Benevolent Society.
