Montgomery Blair and Tilden. Hon. Montgomery Blair, Lin cola's Postmaster-General, a few weeks ago wrote a letter to tbe New York Sun in whioh be took the position that tbe only chance for a Democratic success in 1884 Ilea 1b tbe Domination of Samuel J. Tllden for President. We do not go that far, but we do heartily be lieve tbat our best chance lies In that nomination should Samuel J. Tllden be alive and consentient, tbe former of which is very proba ble and the latter very doubtful.' Why should Mr. Tllden come forth from bis honored retirement to take up tbe gage of battle for a party whioh treated bim so un gratefully last year, and the pusil lanimity of whose leaders permit ted tbe people's choice to be tram pled on in 1878? There is only one reason that we oan think of that ■sight Impel bim to such a self sacrifice, and that is tbat, in the hearts of tbs Democratic masses, he has always been honored as tbe real President of the United States. If their preference could have stand veloe In the Cincinnati Con vention he would have been nomi nated by a majority of five to one over all contestants. Of course Mr. Tllden would acknowledge himself Indebted to this warm and unflagging loyalty, whioh is as re liable ss tbat of Old Adam to Or lando In "As You Like It," and be also recognizes the duty which •very citizen owes to bis country. While Mr. Tllden, to save his self respect, declined to be a candidate In 1880, and peremptorily with drew bis name from tbe Conven tion, we have always believed that he did so to save bis self-respect. He would not risk a conspicuous Indignity, and preferred to allow tbe Democratic party to escape a second infamy. We believe that tf tbe Cincinnati Convention had •prang to its feet as one man; and had, with cheers and acclamations, Wbioh ought to have been there In Volume strong enough to split the roof of the hall iv which it sat, nominated Samuel J. Tilden as tbe Democratic candidate for Presi dent In 1880, he would bave beeu re-elected "like a bouse afire." We honestly think be would bave had two to one in the vote of tbe electoral colleges. When tbe Republicans saw the Democratic managers commit tbis aeoend supreme folly they drew a breath of inexpressible re lief. Sheridan Shook, ono of the leading Republicans of New York City, eaid to a friend of tbe writer, • distinguished Eastern editor, in an off-hand talk, after tbe contest was ended, "You fellows commlt "ted a frightful mistake in not "nominating the 'old man' (Til "den). If you had made him tbe ■'Democratic candidate wecouldn't "have raised a dollar in Wall "street to beat him. Half the bus "lntss men who voted for Garfield "as against Hancock would bave "voted for Tllden bad be been in "the Held. In fact, I oould hardly "have depended upon myself," Yet, largely to conciliate the brute John Kelly, wbo afterwards cut Hancock's throat anyhow, and to gratify tbe false Democratic lead on, who sold tbe party out In 1876, Mr. Tllden was passed over and was obliged to save the party from shame and protect his peisoual dignity by a politic withdrawal. It has been a repetition of sucb •tepid blunders that has enabled •yen so dull a man as Gen. Grant to sneer at the Democratic party of later days. Mr. Tllden is now •beat sixty-seven years of age Were be to be the Democratic can didate in 1884 be would be seventy passed. It is true that Thiers was soventy-slx when elected Presi dent of the French Republic, and ■early eighty when be resigned that office; but, in ibis country, were Tllden to be re-nominated, there would be a clamor about his being too old for tbe onerous duties •f tbe Presidency. Neverthe less, we believe that he would be trisnsphantly eleoted. Tbe Amer ican people, not having tbe oppor tunity of Vindicating American in stitutions last year, wobbled •round helplessly, notwithstand ing tbo amiable character of Gen. Hanoook, and Garfield aud Arthur clipped In by a mere scratch and ■ tbo grace of John Kelly. With Tllden as tbe Democratic candi date, aged seventy or seven and seventy, there would be a popular greandewell the like of which bas , •over been seen In this country, tbat would land bim in the White . Hans* on the combing wave of papular enthusiasm. A Just Philippie. The San Francisco New-Letter is a sort of Isbmaelitlsh journal, and Is snob an habitual scold tbat even when it does say a good thing its utterances ore apt to be dis prized on account of its sheer ma lignity. Yet, occasionally, it ac quits itself of a thing so Intrinsi cally good tbat even the fact tbat it has appeared In tbe Neuia-Lttter does not detract from its merits, which Is Baying a good deal. As a distinctive Dugald Dalgetty of the press, to whom Tyrian and Trojan are alike, tbe alert intellectual gladiators whom Marriott hires to do bis writing generally strike at people who are on the down grade. The fact that, of late, it is dealing doughty blows at General Grant, is pretty good evidence that it thinks that Ulysses, like Marlborough of the England of nearly two centu ries ago, has survived his military aud other popularity. The follow ing remarks, under the head of "Smother a Publio Nuisance," are so true aud apposite tbat we can not refrain from giving them our bearly editorial endorsement. We oan simply add, "'Tie true, 'tis pity, and pity'tis'tis true." We quote: General Grant is the perennial rose of American politios. The trees of the forest have their time to leaf, but Ulysses never leaves. He stays right by us, and promises to stay so long as we have a oent to be asked for. His conduct during the p.st two years bas beeu a na tional disgrace; we say "national" because tbe position which tbe man unfortunately occupies in tbe history of the country makes bim now, and for all time, a publio character. He Bought, with the aid of men whose methods might justly be designated unscrupulous, to break down one of tbe best safe guards of tbe permanency of our Republican institutions'; for, bad ihe three modern Warwick*, Couk ling, Logan and Cameron, succeed ed iv their purpose at Chicago, the first step toward establishing an oligarchy would have been takeu. Wben he failed in that nefarious attempt upon our institutions, be borrowed a greasy old suit of clothes from a vagrant, assumed a hungry look, toon oil' bis hat, and stood before the country as a men dicant, He got two or three hun dred thousand dollars, and then, without taking offtbe dirty suit or hungry look, he proceeded to tbe National Congress and coolly asked it to construct soma special and well-paid offlce for bim. Con gress did not absolutely refuse this modest r, quest, but it took uo ac tion ou tne matter—which was a quiet but very distiuct bintj and now be is, through a friend, Gen. Logan, before Congress with a bill to place bim on tbe retired list of tbe army. This is simply dis graceful, and, besides, it is getting disgustingly monotonous. This man, standing before the doors of Congress (like Poe's raven, "never flitting,") eternally griuding out nf a wheezy old organ a tuneless tune entitled, "My Services to tbe Country," is as offensive as tbe orgau-grindiug mendicaut from Italy. Grant is uot iv need nf alms; in fact, be is a rich man. It wasonly theotherday he purchased a "mansion" in New York, paying therefor what most of us would call a good sized fortune. Nor does the country "owe" him any thing; be bas been well paid, overpaid, iv fact, for every publio service he has performed. Indeed, it is an open question whether his actions since the close of tbe civil war have not been such as to en title bim to a forfeiture of the good opinion and respect of the Ameri can people. He upset tbe govern ment of Jefferson Davis, aud dis persed the hungry, ragged soldiers of General Lee; iushori, to use the cant expression of the day,'he "saved the Union,"some years ago; but we are uot quite sure but that be siuae submitted "ihe Union" to a menace ten thousaud limes more daugerous. Had the govern ment of Jefferson Davis lived, and the soldiers of Gene al Leo triumphed, there would have beeu two Republics upon tbis continent. Had Grant and the triumvirate of Warwicka succeeded at Chicago, Republioan institutions would have disap peared from i ff tbis contineut, and lv their place would bave arisen tbe Institutions of an oligarchy that would have beeu as absolute in its rule as is the Czar of all the Rusiias.

Tub Ben Itevita »l Their Bluully Worst Agsiu-T.ubsisu. Ni.Ses. Tombstone, Deo. 26.—The JEpi taph has just reoeived tbe follow ing Itom its special correspondent la Conapas, Sonora, dated Decem ber 19th: "Editor Epitaph: Your way ward wards have at last com menced tbelrdevllish work of mur dering and robbing lv this coun try. On the 17th inst. they mur dered two of our oitizens on the road between Oposura and Gansa bas, at a point called Cafiada del Carugal. After killing thee , two Inoffensive Mexicans at this place tbeir trail points south. This baud of Indians comprised some tenor twelve. We have pretty sure In formation that tbey have all ltft tbe Casa d» Janos far tbe Teres mountains and tbat the main band are moving north, perhaps with the Intention of raiding upon tbe Qolata settlements of your terri tory and it behooves your people to be on tbe lookout, for you may receive these red devils In your midst at any moment. Later—Since writing the fore going news bas reached us here, from Oposura, tbat this same band of Indians killed seven more men between Tepache and San Jaripa. No more particulars." The Hacienda aad mines ot the Chicago Mining Company are lo cated en this road, and tbe writer of this fears that these seven men reported killed are tbe employes of that oompany. Tbe people in this region are becoming greatly ex cited over tbis Invasion and mur der by tbe Indians. They do not know what steps are being taken by tbe Prefeot of tbe district to call out the National Guard, as tbat of ficer bas .recently removed his of fice to Los Granados, and it is fear ed that communication will be dif ficult, if not entirely cut off, for the present, with this part of tbe district. Still Later.—This evening there arrived here Mr. J. E. James, late ot Virginia, Nevada, In company witb Mr. Daniels. Mr. C. T. Cut ter left yesterday morning and meeting these gentlemen on tbe road returned with tbem. To morrow morning the whole party leave for Mr. Cutter's camp, in Naoasuri, to commence mining operations. There can be no dan ger at Naoasuri from- these In dians, as it is out of tbeir cam paigning ground. George Hearst arrived in Tomb stone Sunday evening. He will re main four or five days, looking over the situation. Harry Loralne, one of the va riety minstrel troupe whom Mr. Hutchinson brought here from San Francisco, died yesterday of asthma and was buried this after noon. EASTERN. W.tliluKtOß "*«*»•■ Washinoton, Dec. 26th.—Mr. Page, of California, Chairman of tbe Committee of Oommeioe, states that it is not true that he is hostile to the intei-State commerce bills; be voted for oue of tbe bills in the last Congress and, without committing himself now to any particular bill, be says he shall give any bill relating to that sub ject a fair chance so far as he oan control ths Committee. It is rumored that instructions have been sent to ths diplomatic representatives of the United States in Central aud South Amer ica to submit to tbe governments which they are accredited a proposition for the revival of the much talked of Congress of Pan ama for a better union of Ameri can nations. It the idea met tbe approval of a majority tbe differ ent American governments, a call would probably have been issued, asking each nation on tbe Western conti nent to send delegates to meet in this city in the fall of 1882. Whether the* new administration will carry thia idea Into effect re mains to be seen. anueaii'* BombnM. New Yobk, Dec. 2Gtb.—The Herald's Washington special says: Guiteau has said, "I don't care anything about the dock. Can't I talk just as well in the dock as elsewhere? I'm bound to be beard. I don't care for that. Judge Cox wouldn't do it. Tbe prosecution begin to see they haven't a case against me. I never saw tbem act so silly as yesterday, especially Porter. I would uot be afraid to go any where if they turn me loose. lam not afraid to walk alone all ever Washington, Baltimore, New York, or any other place. lam not afraid of being Hbot or hung. Tbe Lord and the people d> it agree in this business I'd rather have the Lord on my side than all the people. Experts say lam not an insane man. Tbey are uot wrong iv this. I never have been since the removal of tiie President and don't pretend to be. There are fifty millions of people in (lie United States and all these crank letters come from two or three per sons. There are only two or three dozen oratiks In fifty mil lions of people. Ha! btl hal that's pretty good!" A letter containing a death's head caused Guiteau to frown, as did also a card of a Balti more bouse contalnirg his picture, across tbe forehead of which was written "Guilty." Guiteau to-day received a letter wherein be was threatened witb as-assioation. .The letter was as follows: "Njsw Yobk, Deo. 23, '81. "To the miserable murderer: "Three friends and myself have determined to go on to Washing ton and put an end to your farcical trial by sending you to your maker. We shall take up differ ent positions in the court-room, but at a given signal four bullets will plunge iato your filthy car cass. Make preparations to leave this world at an early day. [Signed] Four Men Without an Inspiration." Tbis amused Guitean, who laughingly remarked: "Some lu natic asylum's doings." With a rather sad manner he continued: "I pay no attention to these fel lows. The most of tbe letters I get are friendly, and the rest are for my autograph." Uriiwoed at Ben. New York, Deo. 26th.—Duriug a gale on Thursday night tbe tug boat J.
