" We call snob men thieves upon the Pacific Coast." Butler did not blame the man so muchb as the system which tolerated him. He tblamed the workingmen for voting for such Sa system. L Kearney said, "We must chop both ways, General: hang a few of these thies aols them oai at the seae time." Kearney expressed his views about political parties, saying, "Hayee and Tilden were alike; certainly Hayes was elected by fraud; old Martton voted fourteen thousand dead men in California." In his speech at Faneuil Hall, Kearney is re ported to have said : "If the workingmen of the United States possessed within their breasts a single spark from which the flame of freedom could be fanned, they would not permit such monatsrs to live in their midst; they would control these telegraphs; they would hurl these infernal lying scalawags from power and elect honest men to transmit plain unvarnihab ed news. As to ungrammatical sentsences in ungrammatical speeches, he said, for $2 50 I can always hire a man to write a grammatical speech, but it takes millions t3 buy an honest man, be he ever so ungrammatioal. Let me nl e Obal aoonnry s ino ruin to perdition by a band of olasieo thieves and legal pirates. What workingmen want is common honesty and common sense, better guides than olassical attainments.

The contest for the nominst:on as State Treasurer was very long and, we are sa arry to bear, developed considerable bitternese. The I contestants were J. U. Mononre. cf;Caddo, E. A. Barke of Orleans, and R. Riobhardson of t Ontohita. On t ae first ballot the vote stood: Moncore 184 , Richardson 93j Burke 132. With slight variatiocs this vote was cast fifty nine times when, by sgreement among the contestants the following resolutions were n adopted: Be it resolved. That for the purpose of ter-. minating the existaug deadlock and of seoer- . taoing the strengt a of the represent ative oan- d didates, the convention proceed, by unanimous c cotrset to take three informal ballots in the following order : First. Barke and Richardson; * second, Burke and Monoure; third, Richardson t and Monoure. ii Beitfurther resolved, That after these infor. 0 msal ballots the oandadate receiving the lowest number of aggregated votes be dropped, and si that no other nominations be in order, and Q that the two highest oandidates so ascertained be brought before the convention for formal sed definite ballot. Be it further resolved. That each delegation 0 shall cast nte full vote in every b allot, as above a provided for. Under this agreement the vote stood: First ballot-Burke 223. Richardson 202. Second ballot-Burke 206, Monoure 209. Third ballot-Richardson 246, Monoure 169. d Totale-Barke 429; Richardson 448; Monoore bi 378 r Monoure was aooordingly dropped, and on the fe next ballot Barke was nominated, receiving tA 265 votes to 147 for Richardson. The 21me commenting upon this compromise plan says: t The last ballot, in thp order taken, was be. ft tween Richardson and Moncuar. In the pre- C vione trial ballots the friends of the osndidate b, not being voted for divided pretty evenly on the other two. Barke had ail his votes on the first two ballots and it was only necessary for his friends to vote on the third solidly for Richardson to cot out Monoure or vine versae thus making it a certainty that Burke would be one of the two candidates to be voted for on the formal ballot. His friends evidently went solidly for Richardson on the last trial po ballot, giving him 246 votes while Moncure In only carried his original strengthb, 169. The t3 latter was thus hopelessly abut out. The re- Ift sul wasee doubtless pnaely a~cidental, bat we hi: fancy the plan will never be tried again under tel similar oireamsanoes by candidates with their ofi eyes wide open.

It means to re- da] sr- buke such patent acknowledgment of grave n- danger. But surely the authorities of New m us Orleans know what is beat for the inter- O 3 eats of their people. They have adopted the very severest methods for confining the fever, and cannot comp'aio that other letl r. cities have resorted to severe methods. N. i at We say to the Bee what we have not log d said to those silly sensational Journals, the into id nimes and Picayune, that the City of d Mobile is not responsible for the railroad l embargo. It is the county of Mobile, o under an act of the General Assembly that frie re has laid the embargo. the The State of Alabama, looking upon thbi Mobile county as the entrepot to the State mo' has taken the management of this thing in 18 her own hands. The city no doubt en the p dorses the action of the agents of the State; 'o re but if the New Orleans journals and the The railroads have an idea of seinog anybody van s for damages. they can go shead and sue tior the 8tate. Just now the State of Alabama hol can't be sued.

We have reoelved, from our bighly eateemed friend, Judge T. Wharton Collene,. a private letter dated Warm-Springs, Madison County, N. C., from which we take the liberty of giv inog the following extract, as being of special interest to the public at this time: I am sorry our o!ty has been visited by the yellow fever, which I hope and pray will noe become severely epidemic. To many of my friende I might say "I told you so." Oo the theory I believe in, the advent of yellow fever this year was highly probable; for the city is more imperfectly draed.bthan it has been sines 1867. The gotttes and tse draining canale in the rear of the city are all the fie nearly ailed with stinking stagnant water. The contrac tors economise their coal as muob as poselble. They only pump off enough after a rein to pre vent overfdow. They leave the greatest pore tion of the water-s muchb as the canals will hold between theilr bnke-to estagnate and fester during the dry, hot days. bo we have all the impure water-water filled with the washbing and offal of our yards, stables sad kitchene, and with street garbage-seething l• the son all the time and filling the air with deleterious gases and humidity. I believe in draining dry. There is no objection to a stream of fresh water being mingled with the street water as it is being drained away : bet drained away entirely it should be erayu dep during the summer. Twoor three hbors work of the draining msobachines and a little greater conmumption of coal daily would efeet this. Observation seems to have ases t uned that Is the years when the canals were kept a thoroughly drained as newer to haveany water stagnating in them, yellow fever was not de veloped spontaneously; and that, If imported, It could he easily eradecated. The degree of humidity relative to beat has a great del to do with the development and propagation of yellow fever, and in the development and die seminatloo of deleterious gases from impare water, festering garbage and tbhe lke. It, as some think, yellow fever s caosed by an inva sion of animalrolm, humidity, fermeutston ; andputrifaetion have probably great action Io favoring the breeding of these anmaloula. Myriads are doubtless laid and batubed every day. New Orleans ie humid enough withboss the evaporation from the filthy water of stag nant getters and of socalled draining onals. Toers truly, T. Wuaarox COLLz.ma. Our greatest misfortune s the value we set upon visible things, which are the only ones we prize. If we could but taste for one moment the reasuree of heaven, how we should deepise those which now dmasle and fasclnate as I" a a
