SENTINEL & REPUBLICAN
MIFFLI5T0WN. Wedhtmdmj, January 16, 1878. B. F. SCIIWEIER, rrfrn asn piopiito. Repudiation. tVithin the past week rumors from Washington have been kept afloat, that certain Republican Senators t,A T?nrsntativ; are intnrfOinpr i tmt President Haves out, and put Mr. Tilden into the Presidential chair, at Washington. With 6Uch a revolutionary result in view, the old story, that in several of the Southern States a majority of the popular vote was cast fir the Tilden electors, is revived, and it is alleged that if that can clearly be shown, President Hayes will have to vacate the Presi dency of the Republic, and that Mr. Tilden will become the President of the United States. Republican Senators and Repre sentatives should be the last men to talk of repudiating laws in the South ern States, that had their foundation idea in the reconstruction laws or measures that followed the collapse of the Rebellion. The laws com- subsidies and monopolies are opposed plained of in Louisiana and other ! and a free ballot demanded, and the Southern States, are the outgrowth attempt to re-open the Presidential f Republican management, and un- J count denounced. The resolutions der them many officers were elected, ! in opposition to the repeal of the ro und recognized by all National ad ' sumption and against the remoneti ministrations since the days of Re- j zation of .silver are very strong, bellion, up to the present time. The At a meeting of the State Corn Hayes electors were elected under jmittee previous to the convention, the well recognized provisions of the j the discussion on the President was same laws, and now at this Lite day, : Terv extended and showed that he when a Senator or Representative in j had" many friends among the mem Congress on the Republican side pro- j bers.

The ' goodie " that Mr. Jilair is after, is an office a United Jitates Senatorship and his reason for trying to open the question is to so popularize himself that the Leg islature of Maryland will be fooled into electing him to the coveted office. He is a chronic office-seeker. The Balkans have been crossed, and Russian troops are on the Constantino ple side of the mountains, out of the snow, in a country where they can j subsist themselves. The English are eager to patch up a peace, so that Russia mny not get Constantinople. Turkey has asked Russia direct on what terms peace can be secured. A despatch from from Charleston, S. C, last Friday, says : Returns from the special election for county officers, held in Georgetown county on the 8th inst., indicate the election of the whole Republican ticket, composed exclusively of colored men. The ne gro vote was as solid as at any elec tion held since reconstruction. SeVKS BTNDKEO THOrSASO DOLLARS is what it cost Pennsylvania to quell the riots of last July. In that bill, the loss of property is not included. m Kixo Victor Ehaxvel died on the l)th inst He was aged 58 years. His son. Prince Humbert, succeeds him to the throne of Italy. The csuntry wants peace, for the good of the whole people, and that's why it sat down so hard on Chan dler. The relic of a bygone day, the Hon. Montgomery Blair, is bidding high for the United States Senatorship from Maryland. His political history has so many blank pages upon it that he ha6 determined to till one up with a record that shall live He has pre sented a memorial to the Legislature to which he was elected, asking Con gress to provide for a judicial deci sion as to the title of President Hayes. It is perhaps to be regret ted that Mr. Blair's long seclusion from the world has made him com paratively ignorant of events that have occur red during the last decade, but it is a little singular that he did not find out that the title of Presi dent Hayes has been passed upon ; that Cangress erected a tribunal to decide it, and that it can no more erect another appellate court to sit upon the Electoral Commission than it can turn back the course of the Mississippi by h?gislative ennctment. Mr. Blair seems to think that he can stop the march of time by simply turning back the hands on the face of the clock .orih American. The State nominating convention of the Niw Hampshire Prohibition inU will be held in Manchester on the 21.1 inst. POLITICAL. A National convention of inflation ists has been called to meet in Tole do, Ohio, on February 221 There are two hundred and twelve diplomatic positions in the gift of the President, including Mininters, Con suls General, Charge d' Affaires, Sec retary of Legation, Consul, Commer cial Agent and Vice Consul. New York has thirty-six of her sons in the business, Massachusetts and Penn- j sylvania have eighteen each, Maine has twelve, Ohio sixteen and Illinois thirteen. The New Hampshire Republican State Convention met at noon on the 9th inst., and re nominated, by accla mation, Benjamin F. Prescott for Governor, and for Railroad Coinmis sioner David E. Willnrd was nomina ted on the second ballot. The con vention then took a recess, after which Governor Prescott apieared and thanked the convention. The resolutions adopted reaffirmed the Cincinnati platform of 1870, and while they admit an honest difference of opinion in regard to the policy of President Hayes, they approve his ; efforts to keep faith with the people ; ; inallfful.atoj on the 9th.

He goes into tbe details of the caases of tbe Mexican raids, and gives a history or tbe same for tbe last twen ty yarn, including Cortina's capture of Brownsville in 1359. Tbe Governor's specific charges are: First, it has been a dpredatory war; second, tbat cus torn boosts taken aud robbed, post offi ces robbed and burned, hundreds of cit izens killed and some tortured (William McMahou, for instance, bad bis legs cut off and was forced to walk on tbe stumps); Murdock was chained, a bar row placed on him and be was burned while in his own bouse within five miles of Corpus Cbristi : women have been made prisoners and subjected to treat ment too horrible to mention ; third, millions of dollars' worth of property have been taken from Texas owners, carried into Mexico, and sold in publio markets ; fourth, Mexico bas furnished an asylum for tbe robbers and a place of deposit for their stolen goods ; fifth, the Mexican government bas been noti fied uiauy times by ours of tbe exist ence of these evils, but she has not re strained her citizens, and she refuses to permit the United States to break up tbe hostile bands which commit the atrocities, and bas declared an attempt to do so a cause for war ; sixth, she has refused to execute the extradition treaty not surrendering raiders, who were themselves enemies of mankind by breaking jail of Starr county, releasing prisoners therefrom and mortally wound ing our peace ofncerj, aud by turning loose fugitives under indictment for murder in Texas and regularly demand-1 ed by our Commissioner of Extradition; I eevenib, be bas afforded an asylum to i Indians aud permitted them to use her : territory to set on foot expeditions to : uivaue ioe lerruory or tne I nit 3d ciaiea aim 10 wage savage warfare upon i the people of Texas, including within ', its scope every age and sex- children . , . . . . . , i, , i r ,1 A great fire devastated a rort .in of Lon- bave been captnred in Ttxas, carried ',," v ,, . . , i , , i don on babbatb. into Mexico and bei-i as slaves.

The great Barrington Savings Bank Mass., bas suspended payment pending an investigation by tba State Bank Commissioners. Tbe officers aro con fident that the bank can meet all its liabilities.

Assets, $358,180; liabilities, $355,400. Tbe statement of Peddicord & Bur rows' bank, Deeatur, III , shows tbe liabilities to be $00,000; asseU, nearly $300,000. It is believed tbe institu tion will shortly resume. Tbe following notice was posted on tbe doors of the Pottsville Bank on the morning of 9th ; By the unanimous decision of the Board of Directors tbis bank will not be open for receipts or payment of depositors unless otherwise directed by the stockholders." But little is known of tbe bank's actual con dition, bat information from reliable sources places tbe amount of deposits at less than $15,000. It is believrd tbe bank bas suspended for tbe purpose of going into liquidation. The tuanagerj of the Pittsburg sav ings banks have decided that five per cent, will bo tbe maximum paid on do posits for tbe ensuing year. A dividend of eight per cent, en the capial stock (out or last year's earnings) nas oeen declared by tbe t armors aud Mechanics' Bank of Saltsbarg. Tbe baokers of Buffalo, N.

Gabriel:" Tub swfcLL mob. How Taa OftrmU Upon Uuptctig Pt dlxtrin. In London the term" " swell mob " is in common use to designate a mass of well chftt fffen whose ways of life are' &rk and mysterious, and who, if they are not in all cases actively crim inal, are o Fear it as to be always open to suspicion. The operations of these classes are carried on where- ever the street throngs are densest, and the showy dress is worn to avoid being readily regarded as criminals. A gang of these well-dressed rascals will reauily so crowd around a victim that his pockets may be picked with impunity. Spies hired for vile pur poses, pimps, gamblers, confidence I ta&i, swindlers of all grades, and all ! i . . i - r i t classes of thieves, find refuge among the swell mob. Hence the protection of pedestrians in the open streets is the most arduous duty of the London police, and hence, too, the invariable order to "move on" that is heard at all points to prevent obstructions, since it is by a swell mob gang stand ing still on the sidewalk that a crowd is gathered and chances prepared for thieving. In New York the swell mob, though not so notorious as in London, is an established nuisance, so that for years the police there has been en deavoring to enforce the London or der "move on." The "statnes," as the street loungers were called, were first attacked, and for a time many respectable persons were seriously annoyed by the regulation. But the perils of the sidewalk gradually be came more known, and now the flash clmracters are more easily distin guished, although an American mob is totally different from any in Eu rope, because an American takes on a style and polish that are very apt to deceive the unwary. It is among the best known things in our police an nals, that the swell mob in New York and Philadelphia has embraced very gentlemanly-looking rascals, extreme ly careful in dress, manners and con versation, who were the worst coun terfeiters, forgers, burglars, robbers, etc. j As the depredators upon society are said to number sixty thousand in London, and a large proportion of them spend most of their time in the streets, the extent to which they in- j crease the throngs on the sidewalks may be understood. The "swell mob" had been growing steadily in l'kila- J delphia for many years, but the Cen- j teiiuial brought mattei s to a head, and now the police have their time ! fully occupied in watching them. The j commonest operation of a swell mob ' rrfilur iu lit rr..t .n ilia l fvn tf a btreet car, or, if the car be very crowded, to tush inside and uluck j the passengers of all their money and valuables. Another favorite doire is for a gang to go into some popular saloou or resort and clean out ail the pocket-books. But in the uiiJst of such throngs as have been seen on Chestnut, Eighth and other streets, there is evidently a harvest for the 'inobbies. The more wealthy and respectable the gathuriug of people, the more cer tain are the gangs to be found among lueiu, wucmer u ue in promeuaue, at a , theaire, opera, ball, coucert, church or, uieetiLg ol a corporation. Among the ( flash characters who u.scd formerly to! hO h.Mla Is tlin t Hi u kin. lit I liAfiatil at raut ! . a t - . v ww very resectable loukuiir man. 1 whose budiue.ts was burglary and bank robbery on a large scale, who lived io robbery on a large scale, who lived io , a browu btoue house in au elegant oeigh- Ungi, gcral hundred dollars p borhood, passed for a merchant of a!n0ni. This action has destroy speciative kiud, and bad a family, who lived in entire igtioratico of bis true j character. The "swell mob,, comprise many men who keep up their reputation by working at limes at some respecta ble calling as a cloak to their real bus iness. But one peculiarity of tbe American "uioobies" is an iuteose de sire to avoid low associations. Tbey are sharps cf every class, but they gen erally have tbe appearance of geutlo tueo. Tince tbe New York police be gan to press upon them loo closely many of them Lave lound refuse in Philadelphia, and the floating popula ticn bas thus been dangerously increas ed. They ciowd all our publio prom enades, flourish at all the places of amusement: are numerous at hotels, bar rooms aud variety shows; ready at billiards and cards, aod are apt at working off stolen securities with out asking questions. Tbe numer ous criminal offences, so rapidly re peated day after day in our city, are not, therefore, the natural production of bird times, as some persons suppose, nor are Ihey generated by tbe growing depravity or our own population. Tbey are caused by tbe influx or the swell mob from London, Paris and New York and as the evil is destined to, swell to much greater proportions oui police cannot too soon bestow tbeir attention upon it, aod make the " uiobbies,' feel the force of justice. But as the Lon don police numbers eleven thousand men and the Philadelphia police has I r . . i . . ooiy a ioree oi twelve nundred men. the task is not an easy one. .Yortk .interican.
