WooXlford, of Now York, nrrivod in Washington last night direct from the scene of tho trial of Gully, ono of the Chlsliolm assassins, in DcKalb County. Miss. He apponred to bo prepared for Ills fato tho inovltablo fate of being Intorvlowod for ho understood nnd duly appreciated tho anxiety of the publlo to got hii vlows, tho result of his closo personal observation of this now noto iloua trial, and gracefully submitted to consc quout questioning by Tub National Repuii Moan, with results as hiroto appended. Mrs. Chlsliolm did not roturn with him, having gono to East Tennosseo, whoro she will remain with friends for u woelc. Preparatory to tho report of tho Interview, it may bo proper to explain that Mr. Wood ford's answers woro ono nnd all given with studied dollbomtlon, bearing ovldonco of ma tured thought upon tho subjoct, nnd, as will bo noticed, wero freo from partisan bins, giv ing ciedlt whoic credit appears to liavo been due, and, In short, wero dignified, concise and hlstoilo In tholr character, as was to Imvo been oxpectea irorn a man who occupies tlio second lilchcst lecal position In tho Government, ihnt Of United SUtcs Dlstilet Attorney for tho Southorn District of New York. Qucitlon. Gonoral, to many storlos liavo uccu torn in wo uowspapeis about your visit to Mississippi that with your normtalnn T nlsh to ask why you nttonded tho lccont Uilsholm niurdor trial? Answer. Certainly, sir. Whon I loarued from tho press that Mrs Chlsliolm had decided to oboy tho subpeann of mo joeni uiBiricv nirornoy ami attend tbo trial. I thought alio did justly nnd wisely. Hit husband was killed whllo ho was a prisoner nnd In jail, nftor ho had boon arrested by tho sncriii, aim wniioiio wnsunuor tno tlicoiotlcal niotcctioii of Mississippi law. Hor duiiHhtm- nnd llttlo boy woro klllod by tho tamo mob nt wo samo utno anil place, alio had ap pealed to the law for redress. Slio could not nssuiuo to decide for heisclf that such uppciu wouiu uu 10.10 ami tno trlul a moro mockory. Judge James S. Ilanuu. th judgo of tho circuit which embraces Kompcr tammy, mm ruiurrcu 10 inn tragedy m his cnargo to mo grunu jury in soplombor, 1877, in words as burning and severo as liavo boon used to characterize tho deed by any sobor minded man oveu at tho Noith. That grand jury indicted somo thirty porBons who took part in tlio mob for murder, Moio than two years had parsed. Passion and piejudlco ought to havo cooled. It was but decent chaiity to assumo that tho trial would bo peaceable, the judgo Impartial, and tho Jury honest and brnve ouoiigh to decide accoidiug to tho ovldonco and law. At all events, Mrs. Chlsliolm, having appealed to tho law and to nubile opinion, wus morally bound to attend tho ti lilt and testify. Had slio failed to do luls, tlio press mm political Ic.idois of Missis sippi mlclit havo said that she did not .1m m face tho dlsclosuics of au Impattlal tilal,or uiai u anu nan uiiouucu, justico woum liavo been done, blio wont, and by going compelled n jury or Kempor County uud tho puhllo opin ion of Mississippi to Uko and bear tho respon sibility of the result. Q, Hut why did you think It necessary or proper that a Not thorn lawyor should go with her? A, Slio was going whote husband, dauchtor. son and frlond had been shot In bur sight. Her story had boon commented ou by tno jiepuuncuu una inuupenuont press or the country. It had douo vorv much toward Axing Northern opinion ns to tho kind of personal security and legal protcctlou oujoyod by Republicans In many districts of .Missis sippi. If it was the duty of this widowed woman to go, it was notilecont lor tho Hoptib llcau North to lot her go alone I happened to tie so situated, all the Fedeial courts at .Now x ori being in rocess, that I could go, and so I wont. Q. Did you nntlclpato any danger In at tending the tilal? A. (empliatlcallvl No. sir. Tho common souse of tlio country was pieugou to lot jus. uiiisuoimgo nuu roturn in safety. Tho result showed that tho indicted parlies stood In uo peill, either from hor, or indeed from any testimony that could huvo been given ou that tilal by anybody. As for mysolf, I received during this visit, as I havo always received on my sovoral visits to tho Eonth sluco tho war, entire civility and Courtesy fiora ovory porsou I mot. Q. Hut, Ucuoral. ono of tho dlsnatchos sout to tlio Now York Herald duilng tho progress ui uiu iuui emiuu mat move was tear ot a riot in case of convlctlou. Wus this fear well founded? A. I cannot tell. Hut there was never ouougli danger of couvlctlou to Justify any intelligent fear, Tho tilal wus n droary farco fiom beginning to end. Q, Wbnt do you mean ? A. Precisely what isay, (J. Did not Judgo Ilamm, who tried tho case, do his duty ? A, He did, fearlessly and Justly. If ho erred nt nil in hU rulings, ho erii'd In favor of tlio prosecution, and nguinst tho defense It Is not tho fault of Judgo Iliinuu that wholesale murder still walks uii jiunlshod in Kompcr County. Q. What Is tho tinnio of tho dlstilet attor ney, and what nbout him? A, Thomas 9, l"ord, and ho did his duty well nnd bravely, I studied critically his conduct of tho caso. Ho had prepared It with enro nnd tried it with goou senso nnil sound professional Judginout. lie wus assisted liv Judiro Wars, nn ox.ohan. oollor of one of tho Mississippi districts, and by Joshua L. Morris, of Vlcksburg, who Is oertnlnly one of tho mast logical nud forclhlo criminal lawyois whom I havo metat any bar, I think that tho prosecution mado out a clear and complolo enso of murdor. Tho ohargo of tbo Judgo wasdlstlnct, dlioctnnd positive, aud yot tlio Jury wero only out long enough to tnko ono ballot and wrlto their verdict, which, under tho Mississippi law, has to bo wilttou nud signed by tho jurors. Q. How tboa do you nccount for tho ver dict? A. I do not know how to nccount for it on any grounds that aro not discreditable either to tho lutelligouco or tbo moral sono of tho Jury, and I do not think that tho nine whlto mon ou tho Jury woro lacking in intel ligence Tho tbrco ucgrovs ovidoutly possessed neither brains nor courage Tho whites woro a fair averago of the whlto mon on tho Jury panel as well as of tho entire white comuiuu- Q. Did vou nsceitain tbo polities nf tbo Jurors? A. I did. Tlio whites wero all Democrats. Ho were two of tho uogrocs at least I was so Informed by ono of tho counsol ior rue ueteuso. rue remaining negro was probably a Republican, but evidently a man without souso to form or courago to maintain any Intelligent opinion on any subject. Q. Was tho jury fairly drawn? A. It was. Of the sevonty-flve names drawn for tho special wiiir jlfty-oue wero sorvod nud pro souted themselves in court. Of these twenty five wero black nnd twouty-slx wero whlto. Whatover olso may be said of Kcmpor County, It must be frankly admitted that tho Jury list of tlio county is fairly mado up. It contains over 2,000 names. Two-fifths of this number aro blacks aud'turoo-uTths whlto. Tho offi cers charged with making this list havo douo their duty impartially, nnd tho special panel drawn from this entire list was honestly drawn, Q. Do you thluk the vordlct fairly repre sents tho fooling of Kemper County? A, It does not roproscut tho feeling of tho grout mass of tho negroes; nor of tho whlto Repub licans: nor yet of a small minority of sobor and law-abiding whlto Democrats. All thoso tnrco classes combined coustituto a clear aud decided majority of tho citizens and legal voters of tho country. But I am sadly and re luctantly compelled to say that I boltovo the vordlct truthfully nud honestly represents mo presouc Judginout nud wishes of tho groat majority of tho white mon of Kompcr County. I tried to observo caiofully aud Judgo candidly, uud I think that tho average present opinion of the whlto people of Kemper County in rogard to this wholo matter Is about this: They think (twos unfortuiiuto, but natural nnd almost ox cusablo that Judgo Chisholm, JohuP. Gilmer aud Amos MeClellan wero shot by tho mob that Sunday morning In DoKuIb. Thoy think that Miss Cornolli and young Johnnie Chls liolm wero accidentally klllod by those who at tempted to kill their fathor. This kill ing of tho children Is almost univorsally rcgiottod. Hut thoy think that tlio conviction nnd execution of anybody for tho deed would bo equally unfortunate, and that tho eutlro matter had better bo allowed to dlo out nnd bo forgotten. Thero Is no In telligent aud brave purpose to viudicito tho law and punish tho mob or its ringleaders,. In n word, whllo judgo and district attoruoy try to do their duty, thero Is as yot no bravo, tol erant and law-abiding publlo opinion bohlnd them to hold up their hands and enforce the law. Tho friends of the law among the people ino quioi mm powerless, ino irlouiis ot tho mob uro resolute, outspokon nud dominant. Tho jury practically Indorsed tlio deeds of tho mob, nnd such public opinion as is to-d.iy heard aud felt In Kemper County sustains and In dorses tlio verdict of tho Jury. Q. aoncr.il, I uotico that you qualify nil youruxprossions by such words us "tho pres ent public opinion," nud tlio like, Havo you any hopjfora better state of things hereafter ? A. Cortainly I have. Tho mob of Koinper County stormod tho jail in Apiil, 1S77, aud miudorcd defeuseluss prisoner.) aud helpless children, aud none dared to iutcrfeio. In 1670 at least tlio forms of law aro observed and au orderly trial Is hold, This is n great point gained. Although uo redress has been so cuicd in tho local jury box, still the ovldence and tho rulings of tho court have demon stiatcd to Impartial men in all tho countiy that the murdor wa3 brutal aud cowardly. This was not nu Investigation by a puitlsauCongics slonal committee, but It was a thorough aud deliberate trial, conducted in duo form of law by a Dcmocratlo dlstilet attoruoy befoio u dis tinguished uud lc.it ncd DomocratlcJudee. Tho numerical majority of nil the legal voters of Kcmpor County to-day in tuolr hearts con. deinn tho murder nnd disapprove this vordlct. Now thoy uro poweiloss. Hut it Is not possi ble for this state of tilings to continue foievor. Vlolcnco begets violence. At last organized society must nnd will protect itself by peace ful nnd legal methods. Whenever n full nud fioo olectlou Is hold In Komper County the men who condemn tho mob uud regret tho vordlct will carry the olectlou. It Is ouly n question of time. Huw soon this will como In Kompcr, or, Indeed, in nil Mississippi, depends very largoly on the tldolity nud unity of North ern Ropubl leans. Q. Have you any objection to explaining how you thluk Northcruoplulou and Northern political action is going to affect tho political and social condition of Mississippi uud tlio South? A. Tho piesslng political and social need of tlio South to-day seems to mo to bo such n division of tho white veto between op. posing parties as will permit nnd socuro prac tical toleration by each uud ull of tho political opinions of their neighbors suoh n division ns will protect full nud fret discussion, secmo n fair vote aud compel au honest count. This can be practically obtalnod ouly by dividing tlio whlto vote Such division Is onlynquestlon of time It Is Just us Inovltablo as the coming or to-morrow. It Is mainly hindered and pro vouted to-day by tho politician's hope that a united South, aided by a divided North, can and will sccuro tbo power, patronage nud olllcl.il honors of n Natioual Democratic Ad. ministration. If that hope falls next year, aud a united South Is then beaten by a united North, Ibollovuthut tho South will oortalnly dlvldo after 1630, and bofoie 1831, Tho politi cal situation Is today just Uko tlio military situation In 16115, whim Grant was making his last movements ou Richmond. Almost the entire Southern press thou slid that though thoy lost Richmond, they would still fight on, and die, If need bo, in the last ditch. Grant know better. He know that wheu Richmond fell most of tho Confederate army would go homo ou their own account and that Leo must surreudor the balance. He was right, aud with tho fall of Richmond the war practically ended. To-day the Demociutlo leaders uud the Southern press say, aud doubtlois they say honestly, that ovon if boatou iu 18S0 for tho Presidency they will romnlu au unbrokou paity peunanoiitly, holding a United Sjuth on the issues of race uud White Rule. They me us much mistaken now us then. Thoy may not surrender. Hut tholr party will ciumbluund new formations will como, As tho whites dlvldo, so will tho blacks. Par every bravo whlto man who Joins tho progies slvo party of tho future sumu worthless black will recruit tho Bouibou pirty of tho past. Men who believe in tho Nation, in fioo schools, In toleration and progress, will bo voting together, blacks and whites, whllo moil who cliug to old prejudices, nud had rathor live iu tlio giuvuyuids of tho past than in tho work-Holds of to-day, will be counseling nnd voting togetiior. I bcliovc, Blr. thai Republican victory Iu 1630 will be followed by tho defeat of thu lobular Dem ociatlo Stato tickets In ut leist four of the old slave States belbio 1831, Wo nro nearer tho end of this Solid-South busluoas than most Re publicans expect or most Democrats will admit. The ono thing needed Is ono more Ri'puhllcuu victory under a wise, bravo leader iu 1330, nud the Sjlld South is forever biokon, THE BUCKEYE STATE. Improssions Dorived from a Tour in tho Stato. Auditor Mcflr nit's Views of the Situation Combliiutlim of l'nvimible Circum stances tTtiprooortoiitFil Enthusl nsni Popularity of tlio lto publlcun Candidate Kf foot of tho Elections. A Victory Assured In Ohio. Hon. J. M. MoGrow, Sixth Auditor of tho Treasury, has roturued trom n visit to Ohio and was nt Ills desk yostcrdny. Iu rcspouno to an Inquiry by n representative of Tun National Ilr.punuuArT as to tho situation In that Stato ho replied ; Ohio is booming and is s&fo for tho Republican ticket by from twenty to thirty thousand votes, anil probably mom. N. R. Thoro appears to havo boon a revolu tion there; what nro tho causes that brought it nbout? Mr. McG. A varloty of causos. Thero has been a combination of cliciimslanccs, favorable to the Republicans or unfavorable to tho Demo crats, that havo caused it. Thero has boou a growing distrust of tho Confederate Congress, especially since tho extra session was forced; but tho prom Incut cause has beeu the rovlval of business and tho gonoral prosperity ull ovor tho Stato. Tho apparont revolution Is not so much a chaugo of sentiment as a roturn of Republicans who woro disposed to givo but llttlo thought to tho matter, nud woro willing to accept any change, iu hopes that somohow tho times might grow bettor. Ohio has always been strougly Republican sinco the war, but thoro woro thoso in tho party who becamo depressed with the hard times and wero willing to vonturo a change In hopos of roller. Now, wltli tho industries revived, the forges in full blast, the nail factories and mills running and everything thriving, thoy sco more clearly that the troubles were the Inovl tablo result of a causeless robollion, brought on by Democratic Influences, nnd nro firm op ponents of that party. I saw not n sluglo sorehead or grumbler whllo l was In Ulilo. Q. Is thoro much enthusiasm this year? A. I havo nover soon more onthushisin thau is manifested by tho Republicans. Their meet ings nro -the laigost that havo boon held since tho war. Tuoy nro nwaKa and Iu earnest, whllo tho Democratic meetings aro small and spiritless. Their spcakors fall to strlko tho popular chord. Thoy havo had Wiickbnni, of Kontucxy, tnoro, aim navo trotted mm arouuu pretty freely, hut It issifo to sty the result of tils speeches has been to mako Republican voterd. Tho people of Ohio nro not In sym pathy with tho class of politicians represented by Blackburn, who Justify tho bloody deeds by which political supremacy in the South is maintained. The popular approval In tlio South of tlio murder of Dlxou, tho acquittal of Gully, and such open disregard of law uud justico aro not calculated to endear the ordor- loving pcoplo ot uulo to the party that sus tains such measures. Q. Tho threo candidates for Governor are all popular, mo thoy not ? A. They all stand woll poisoually. Piutt hostnauy warm friends nud Kwlug is popular outsldo of politics, but tbo politic il Issues havo beau so cloarly do lined that Ewlng is lost sight of In tho fight for principles, Ou tlio score of personal pop ularity Foster undoubtedly leads his compet itors. Ho has boon hard at work making u thorough canvass of the Stato. Ho Is thor oughly convorsiut with tho local Issues In every township, aud gives his personal atten tion to tho details of tho campaign. Ho makes friends whurevor ho goes, oven among the Democrats, and ho will receive many votes from tlio moderato men of that party. There is no man in Ohio to-day so peisonally popu lar 03 Charloy Poster. Tlio plain, straight. forwaid, buslncss-liko way In which ho speaks makes him many fricuds with tho farmers and mechanics. He has visited over sixty coun ties, aud Intends to visit tlio remaining ones If his voice does not tall ulm. Uo is now quite hoarse from constant spoaklug. Q. We hoar but llttlo of Piatt ; what has bocomo of him? A. Piatt Is making n tiiorougn canvass ot tnoHtate, auti tuo uiocu backers say thoy will poll as many votes as thoy did last fall. If thoy do it will be to the disadvantage of Dwlng. My own Impression Islhoy will poll about two-thirds of their last year's voto. Q. Tho canvass will, I suppose, bo kopt hot until election. A, It will bo maintained with Increased vigor until election day. lllatuo is expected theroHoon utter tho 'Juth, and Secre tary Shermsu will visit the Stato again bol'oio election. Other men of National reputation will alio tako part thero shortly. Q. What was tho effect of tho news fro.u Callforuli and Maine In Ohio? A. I havo stated that thoro was a combination of circum stances fuvotliig tho Republican cause. Among these wore, as I said, tlio action of tho Confed erate Congress in attempting to starve tho Government or coorco the I'resldout; the sun cess ut speclo resumption, which practically Is death to tho Greenback heresy, though it may linger n whllo the return of prosperous times, the victories In Maluo and Ctlifuiuii, tho de moralization of the New York Democracy aud tho popularity of our candidates. With all these elements iu our favor, thu question is now simply one of majorities. .urxious nuunnoss. Mooting of tlio Duiiiui-rallu National Coin mltloo. Tho first nnd most urgent cn'ise of tho oxtruordlmry moating of the Democratic Na tional Committee hero iu Washington next Thursday is the sadly doiuoruliz:d condition of the Diving sldo of tho campaign out Iu Ohio. Au admission of this fuet was casually ilioppod, or uccitlouuiiy, ny one oi tlio chief local fuelemou of tho committee, where it was subsequently picked up by Tun National ItKl'UiiMOAN', and further Investigation evolved the fact that the Democratic leideu are oun aud nil badly frightened ut their prospects In ths lluckoyo State, The explanation Is made th it their ticket out there Is not a Uemocra tie ticket t.thal it wus selected under cowardly in- lluoucos.coucessloiis being mado Iu the choice of lltvlui: to tho r.uiuodost kind ot solt-mnnevltus. and iu tho choice of both Kivlug uud Rice to tho Union-soldier clamor concessions which forced upon the tank and fllo of the pirty n lot of weak nud obnoxious candidates from one end of tho ticket to tho other. Ono Southern Democrat, discussing the mattor hist night, remaiked rather oiicrgetlc.illy that "the Union- soldier busluoss Is all good cuuucn In its way ; but how can a Htuto-Jtlghts Democrat llku old man Thurinaii take much lutmcst Iu the sue coss of anox-Ropiibllciui, ex-Union, ox-every- thing uko lorn lowing I ' sucn questions as this," he added, "are dlstmblng the minds of our party fiiouds out In Ohio ns much, If not moro. thin luuulrloi by haul-money Demo crats us to how they can reconcile their votos for a soft-tuouoy candidate, who has none of the lodoumlhg, old-fashioned Democratic qual ities ofold Governor Hill Allen, rest his soul I'' This explanation or tho true luwaiduoss of tho Domocratle distress iu Ohio shows that tlio discontent Is growing deopor, and bordeis ou the most abject demoralization. The first attempt of the committee will bo to do some, thing, anything, uo mutter what, to infuse new life Into their almost lifeless machine; and. failiui: In that, to provide bouquets of dandelions, Jlmaoii-woed and other impro priate lloivers, with which tu bedeck the lug Hihy coipse wheu It Is "laid out" ou the UIU pioMPIO, Incidentally It Is lo bs presumed the New Yoik mudiilo will bo alluded to nt the meet ing ; but thero is good authority for tho stato mont that no attempt will bo mado to Inter- foro thcruln at nrosont. It Is nruued that tho Kolty bolt may settlo itsolf In duo courso of time, and that tho Tlldon managers will not permit any Interference by the National Com- nntteo on Staff Affairs this, on tho ground of high principle, nnalagous to tho grand Hour bon theory of Stato'Iudopcudcuco. j OoiinectlMit for Grant. Kx-Postmnstei-Ueiieial Jewoll was iu tho city n few days fllirce, aud In leply to tho question by a postal 'JiITlclal, "How doos Con necticut stand?" said. "Connecticut Is for Grant. You know flraat is not my first choice, but thero Is no denying tbo fact that iny Stato is for Grants Our people realize tho noccsslty for having isuch a man as Grant in tho Kxecutivo chair, and aro iu oaruost for hlui." j Iiivosllgntliiff fonntor Ingnlls. Senator Vance, of North Carolina, passed through Washington yesterday ru tonfe for Kansas, whero ho will bo Joined by Senators Saulsbury, of Delaware, and Logan, of Illi nois, nud begin the farco of Investigating tho exploded charges agalrlst tho validity of tho election of Senator lugftlls. It Is not probable, howovor, that this alleged Investigation will, bo olosed during tho present recess of Con gress. Tho Idea of the Democratic malingers Is to keep this ospeclal'sluiccwny open for an indoflntto period nnd to utlllzo It ns nn avenue for tho discharge of nil kinds of filthy and Jiorjurod slenders against au honestly elected toptibllcnu Senator ono whoso election has already boon Investigated nnd found to bo correct by tho legislature of his Stato. Commissioner i'liolps' Case, Captlaln Phelps, It li stated, Is making n strong effort to retain his place on tho Ueaid of District Commissioners. His short visit In this city last wook was brought about evidently by tho publlo announcement of tho President's intontiou to remove him. Ho returned ou Friday to the Warm Springs, having statod whllo In thooity that he'did not Intend to re sign. Many of his friends are now confidently declaring that thoro will bo no chaugo iu tho District triumvirate. It Is noticeable that avowed Domocrats nro tho loudest and most positive In their statements that Captain Phelps will not bo removed.

This would glvo us u Grand Lodgo of 87 mombcrs, not counting Chill and Switzerland, and for a long tlmo tho membership would bo under 100. The truth Is, this lodge should bo composed of but 0110 roprcseutitivo fiom eueh State, Ter ritory or country under our Jurisdiction, nnd not ono from ouch Grnud body. This would mnkon Grand body of forty-eight members nt present, with a probable lucicasii to sixty In tho next thirty to fifty years a body largor than tlio senates of most of tho States of tho Union. Even without consolidation or segre gation of Graud Lodges and Grand Kucampmcnts this result could bo reached by a jolut olectlou, just as thu two houses of our Stato legislatures olect United States Senators in joint convention. Iu regard to raising revenue for the support of the Grand Lodge, tbo Grand Slro forcibly argues that a per capita tax Is tho tiuo plan, and porfoetly just. Possibly with this reduc tion nud by strict economy lu all respects, es pecially lu piloting, by oinlttlug that uiijuit annual donation of tlio journal uud digest to now mombers, uud by biennial sessions, ouroipeuses may be brought within our in come.

The ronoit continues: "Tho time has como for this lodge to Ax the ratio of duos nud benefits. SulUclcut facts havo been ascertained lo Justify It.

Let us establish at least a minimum uud rcquiro tho sick uud gen eial fund to bo kept separnto fiom tho manage ment fund, and prohibit thu latter from being paid out of tho fuiiucr. " Reflection has convinced 1110 that our whole policy of allowing Past Graud Sires seats lu this body, with the power of debate and making motions, is wiong, Tills should bun purely representative body, uud they only should be allowed to speak lu It who nro sent hero ns representatives.
