The estimated reduction of the pub
lic debt for the month of March is given at $15,000,000. The newspapers are busily engaged in looking up the lesson of the Cincin nati riot. One lesson is that mob law is worse than no law. The last republican ticket brought out is Rutherford B. Ilayes and Rob ert G. Ingersoll. It would b* stronger if turned “eend for eend.” Ex Senator Geo. Kkouskop, of Richland Center, is reported to have made an assignment with liabilities of SOO,OOO, and assets of SIOO,OOO. The New York Herald advises the republicans to support Conkling on the ground that he is more certain of carrying New York than Blaine is. One indignant confederate tele graphs John Sherman that it does not make any difference h' W much they shoot over in Cincinnati; they will not hit any one who is not a mui derer. A (special from Richland Center, Wis., reports the assignment of Hon. Geo. Krouskopf and adds that a farm er named Ed. Morris had $7,400 in Krouskopfs bank. While little is known as to the assets and liabilities, it is reported that the assets arc in ex cess of the liabilities.

'Eiik duel fought in I’aris recently between M.

The causes of the quarrel aie not slated, hut the presumption is that M. Arne is one of those provoking statesmen that constantly arouse the indignation of enterprising journal ists. M .Inlet wanted a higher order of statesmanship and was called upon to tight instead. He fought and slight ly wounded his antagonist, the moral clearly being that statesmen must everywhere improve or they will most likely get the worst of it. In the report of the directors of the American Bell Telephone Company, read at the annual meeting of the stockholders in Boston on Tuesday, it was said; “We and our associates have the strongest motives for wish ing to get wires under ground as far and as soon as it can be done w about destroying the cfliciency of the service. But although short trunk lines work fairly well beneath the surface, as shown in Boston and elsewhere, in the present statu of the art it is im practicable to put the bulk of the wires under ground without interfer ing seriously with facilities upon which the public are now getting to depend. Conversation over long lines (those reaching the suburbs even) is difficult and often impossible to those who are connected through the under ground cables.” The situation of affairs between General Graham and Osman Digma, as described in the latest London dis patches, is perfectly delightful. The English general is satisfied that if he could clear out Osman and his rebels, now located a few miles west of Sna king the march to Barber could be ac complished and possibly some good help might be forwarded to Gordon at Khartoum. Meanwhile Osman is more confident than ever; promises his followers victory next time, and is sure that the Mahdi and all the tribes are bent on scalping Graham and his followers. In the house of commons Lord Randolph Churchill menaces the British cabinet with the threat that if General Gordon is kill ed the ministry cannot remain in pow er a day. So Africa and London arc looking at each other. But neither is inclined to strike a decisive blow. VOL. XVIII. LATEST TELEGRAMS. WASHINGTON.

WIS.. FRIDAY, APRIL 1, 1884. RIOT AND HAVOC. The City of Cincinnati in the Hands of a Riotous Mob. Enraged at tlie Impunity of Crime, the People Rise. Besieging the Jail and Lynching Murderers. Cincinnati, March 28. —Ten thou sand people gathered at Music hall in response to a call by reputable citi zens to take action on the Berner ver dict. Many could not get in. Strong resolutions were adopted condemning the verdict, and a committee on legis lation appointed. Upon adjournment a vast crowd moved direc ly to the jail where they began an attack on the front door. At 9:40 the riot alarm sounded, summoning the entire police force to the jail. Vast crowds of peo ple are gathering in this vicinity. Berner was remanded after his sen tence this afternoon, and is now on his way to Columbus, but if the mob gets in, the other murderers will be lynched. The police upon arriving in the vicinity of the jail commanded the crowd to move. Not being obeyed, they fired, but as no one was hurt, it was presumed the police fired in the air. It is said that was the intention of the police, they being deep iti sym pathy with the movement to condemn the outrageous Berner verdict. A shot or two was fired from the jail, but the crowd refused to move. They have a ! good leader and are still (10 P. M.) at work at the jail. Midnight—About thirty shots with muskets were fired by the militia for ■ the purpose of scaring the mo . The | result was that glancing balls struck j at least four persons inflicting injur- ! ies which may be fatal in the case of | o>;e or two. Police Munn and Pri- j vale Cook are the worst hurt. The • latter was shot in the breast. The j volley seems to have checked | the movement of the mob though I the crowds have not yet dispersed from j about the jail. There does not seem to I be any doubt that these woiyids were inflicted by the guns of soldiers. The mob made no effort to shoot. 2:130 a. in. —The firing by soldiers from windows has been terribly de structive. The following wounded have been gathered into the drug store on the corner of Court and Wal nut streets, and at a hotel near by: E. J. Green, dying; Walter Fay, dying; Jas. Turk, mortally wounded; F. Zolmer, a bad wound in the thigh, and Ed. Dullef, shot in the leg. These are all bystanders and there is growing a bitter feeling against the soldiers. The mob has taken all the arms they want from Kiltendge’s store including a small cannon. Cincinnati, 0., March 29.—T. C Campbell appeared on the streets to day guarded by a dozen men. lie is the criminal lawyer who has been charged with corrupting juries. The crowds shouted: “Hang him!” He went on, Change, but was told that it would not be safe for him to remain there. While he hesitated about leaving, a crowd gathered about him, and he was pushed before it out of the door It is said he received several notices this afternoon that if he did not leave the city within twenty-four hours he would be lynched. As the evening has advanced the excitement has increased. The streets are fall of excited men. The crowds in the vicinity of the court house are greater than last night. One thous and militia arrived —from the interior towns. They were stationed at the Cincinnati, Hamilton & Dayton depot in order that the crowd might not be excited by seeing them march through the city, and yet they would be within easy call. The following circular was cl is tributed through the crowd and :n --tensitied l'.e excitement: “Public safety demands immediate action. Organize vigilance committees in every ward. Ileal sores by purifying the body; serve notice to criminals, criminal lawyers, gamblers, and pros timtes to leave Hamilton County within three days and remain away forever, or sutler the penalty. As long as the present clique of criminal lawyers that infest the city are per mitted to remain and corrupt juries, outrage justice, and shield criminals, just that long will our citizens be murdered, our property destroyed, and protection by the law denied. Make one clean sweep while we are at, it. A vigilance committee of 300 in each ward, composed of the best citizens, can by earnest work cleanse the moral atmosphere in three days. Organize at once and serve notice to all disreputable characters in the ward to leave and never return. T*e repu tation of this city demands a change or wickedness will reign supreme.” At 10 o'clock the riot alarm was again sounded. There had been in discriminate tiring on the part of the mob for an hour. The militia return ed the tire, but aimed their guns over the tops of the buildings. Their ef forts to frighten the mob had no effect at all. Just before the riot alarm was sounded several dynamite bombs were thrown into the jail yard. They burst with terrific force. An attack was made upon the treasurer's oflice in the court-house. Tlie doors were battered down and an entrance effected. It is supposed coal oil was poured about the room. At any rate, a fire was started soon after ward. It burned fiercely, although the building is fire proof. The fire department was called out. but the mob refused to permit the firemen to get near the court house. The flames still light up the sky. The fire must have spread through the building. Nothing authentic can be learned about it at this hour. An effort was made to set the armory on fire, but it was unsuccessful. L ll P- m.—The whole court-house is on tire. One of the fire companies tried to force ;ts way through the mob. bat was driven back precipitately. The rioters then battered the engine to pieces with axes. The firing continues. The galling gun has been brought into plav. Six of the mob went down on the first tire. There are wounded and dying men in all the drug stores and saloons in vicinity of the court-house. The people are wild with excitement and are leaving their homes with such valuables as they can carry through fear that they will be burned out. The militia are now shooting to kill. A division of the . b has marched down Main street to tne gun stores of Kutridge &: Cos. and Powell & Cos. Ttiej want more pistols and cartridges. A guard resisted them, and there is now shap firing in that vicinity. Cincinnati, 0., March 30—2 A. M. —lt is still impossible to tell how many dead and wounded there are. Nine dead bodies are in the morgue at Habig's. One is Dugan, a furniture manufacturer. At the hospital at 1 o'clock are the following: KILLED. Capt. Jack Desmond, shot through the head. Henry J. Peiser, shot through the j head. John Hetlensheim.shot through the breast. WOUNDED. Fatally—Alfred Hopkins. Charles ; Bloom. J. Camper, Will Balz, and ! Phillip Haabe. Severely—Daniel Christman, twice | iu leg; Lewis Kolt, right leg: Henry i Rudde. thigh; Joel Kuaus, right leg; Edward Rhem. right leg below the i knee; Fred Eckenhorst, right leg above the knee; Wm. Sullivan,thigh; j John Barth, a boy of 14 left shoulder; i George Wise, left side. Serious—John Heckermau. shot j through both legs. It is said that the 1 bail, after passing through both legs, | killed a small boy, now at Ilabig's Seven dead men are in the Auzeiijrr , office, at Vine and Canal. Three i dead men were at Court and Vine, | but could not be reached. Rumors i are abundant, among them that Col. Hunt and Lieut Tom O’Meara, of i the police force, were killed in the 1 jail. This cannot be verified at this I time, as communication with the jail : is difficult. j END Of THE SECOND NIGHT'S CHAPTER OF HORROR. The mob is rapidly dispersing. The ! streets about the court house are no j longer obstructed and the firemen are | playing on the court-house ruins. An ! occasional shot is heard, but no more ; mischief is expected this morning, i The taking of the brass pieces from | the rioters from Kentucky rendered it | impossible for anything further to be j accomplished toward taking the jail i 1 to-night. MORE TROUBLE FEARED TO DAY. The rioters are very sullen, and ; more trouble may occur this after- I noon or to-night. The killing of so j many people lias incensed a great j number to such a degree that they | may join the mob if another outbreak occurs. The people who are still on S the streets are very tired after two nights of such tumult and excitement and but little is now said. The burn ing of the court-house no one had for a moment considered possible. It is a calamity second only to the loss of so many lives. It is an awful les son. A Cincinnati dispatch of the 31st. gives tin* list of killed and wounded during the two days and three nights of the riot. The total number of kill ed is 75 and the total wounded is 150. It is believed that many mom slightly wounded have kept the fact concealed. The scenes at the hospitals and at the morgue are heartrending in the ex treme, men, women and childten weeping and wringing their hands as they search among the dead and wounded for missing friends and re lations. The Zoological Malian at Naples. Phil.ui*lphia Record. America has ko institution to com pare with the fa mens zoological slat ion founded at Naples by Hr. Hohni. Sit uated in the center of the Villa Reale, the park of Naples, still tie.' largest city in Italy, in a sub tropical climate and on the shore of a sea rich in all forms of life, the Naples Zoological Station will probably long hr the first in etlieiency, as it was the first in time, of the zoological stations of tin world. Into its foundation Hr. Anton Hohni placed all his fortune and that of his wife. The Italian government gave the site, yet the expenses were so great that Dr. Daura's resources were exhausted, and the scheme might have proved a failure had not the German government, inspired by the enthusiasm of a man who had sacri ficed so much for the cause of science, come to Ids assistance. Darwin and the late Prof. Balfour each gave $5,000 to assist it, and the Berlin acad emy’ has recently given IS 000 marks toward the purchase of steamers for dredging purposes. This institution is not for beginners, but for investi gators. Each worker has his separate table, with the necessary chemicals and a supply of alcohol free. Near at hand are two or three small aquaria, each with water running constantly through it. lie states in what depart ment he wishes to investigate, and every morning is supplied with living material fresh from the sea: for in connection with the institution is a corps of fishermen, with boats for fishing and dredging off shore and in shallow water, while the steamers Jo hannes Muller and Frank Balfour are ready for work in deeper water. Most European countries hold a so called “table’’ there, with the privilege of sending a pupil to occupy it. The fee for such a table is S3UO. Italy holds three tables. Russia two. Great Britain two, while Belgium, Holland, Hungary, Switzer land, Baden and Saxony have one each. Austria has its own zoological station at Trieste, but Prussia holds no less than seven tables, besides one which belongs to the Berlin Academy. France has her own two zoological stations, one at Roscoff - , in Brittany, the other at Banyuls sul-Mcr. Den mark also has a station, while the ab sence of Spai>i and Portugal from the patrons of the institution is explained by' the lack of biologists in those countries. While so many small countries have a table reserved to themselves, America had none until last year, when, ten years after the station was established, a table was taken in the name of Williams Col lege. Yet American students have been welcomed at Naples, and Dr. Dohrn has on more than one occasi-n allow ed them to study- for a considerable time free of charge. The study of life iu general hasmost important bearings upon human life, and it is scarcely to the credit of this great country that it has allowed such small nationalities as theSwissaud the Saxons toout>hine it in the use made of au institution devoted to so noble a purpose. The unprecedented severity of the floods of tne Ohio valley during the past few years has been attributed to the increased acreage of new-drained land in the water-shed of that river. Perhaps in no part of the country has there been so much attention paid to the modern methods of drainage as in Ohio and Indiana. Asa result water reaches the streams much more rapid- I v than it otherwise would, and great floods result. if this reasoning be correct, annually increasing spring floods must be expected and provided against. “Gaze upon yonderevenmg star and swear to be true while its light shall shine! wear, my love! Swear by Venus’" exclaimed a youth in im passioned accents to one of the Vasaar girls. “How stupid you are," she an swered, “That is not Venus. The right ascension of Venus this month is 13h. 9m.; her declination is 17 de crees 24m. south, and her diameter is 10.2." Among the animal fibres used in the manufacture of textile fabrics is cashmere wool, which is the 'me wool like hair of the goat.

The cry went forth, "The floor is sinking." Everyone turned pale, and tbeau dience rose for a stampede, when Ben Butler came to the front of the plat form beside Mr. Choate, and calling the audience to halt, said there was no danger; that the architect of the building was present, and that he would go with him and examine the building and report to allay their fears. This quieted the audience. Butler and the architect made an im mediate examination of the hall and found the danger very great. Butler at once returned and smilingly assur ed the audience there was no present dang- r, but as the hall was over crowded he advised them to quietly adjourn to the public square and Mr. Choate would finish his speech. The crowd went quietly "Hit and the catas trophe was averted. As Butler step ped on the platform he had whispered to Mr. Choate with a laugh, in order to deceive the audience. This is what he said : “Mr. Choate. I must clear this house or we shall all be in hell in five minutes. The cathedral at Ulm.

The proposed relief of the militia by a civil force cannot he put into opera tion speedily, if at all.as the selection of suitable men and their equipment must take time. The militia still keep the streets barricaded as strongly as ever, not even allowing the Mount Auburn street cars, whose track winds fora distance of two squares within the lines, to pass through. As to the state of public feeling, it cannot be said that the origin'll impulse which actuated the men taking part in the demonstration Saturday night has been been removed or lessened by tho presence of the military. On the contrary the events of Friday and Saturday nights Wive given rise to a new feeling to that of indignation against the militia. It is only hope lessness of a conflict with its power fully armed force prevents an attack upon it. Newspapers, usually con servative, speak with great freedom today ou the situation as it now is The Volksblatt (German) says; “The calling of the militia on Friday Light can only be characterized as a grave mistake. Our militia know and can do nothing else, it appears, but shoot ing. If reliance had been placed on the police, order might probably have been restored without loss of life. ANOTHER MrUDKK. Cincinnati, 0., April 1. —Another murderer is in custody and may be expe-led at the jail to-day. Noah Lightfoot (colored), yesterday during a quarrel with Hugh Toomey, driver of a cart employed on thedumpof the Cincinnati Northern K. It, struck Toomey on the head with a shovel, from the effects of which Toomey died this afternoon. Lightfoot was arrested. It is said the act was un provoked by any blow or menace ex eept. by words. Lightfoot was also employed on the same dump. The Commercial-Gazette in an edi torial today upon the situation, speaks in the strongest possible terms in condemnation of Sheriff Hawkins for calling on the militia, and lakes an account of the three days of terror. As the result, it declares it to be the saving of a jail full of murderers. It adds the reign of iaw and order is re stored—that law and order which makes murder the safest trade and which has made impotent the admin istration of Jaw against crimes of atrocity. Capt. Folger, who commanded the detachment of militia which fired the first shot, has published a card deny ing the statement that he or dered his men to fire. He says Sheriff Hawkins gave the order in the words, “Give it to ’em, boys,” and in the excitement I could not stop them, so I cried. “ForChrisl's .sake, boys, fire high.’' My men would never had fired had it not been that four of them were wounded with stones and shots from the crowd, and they shot on the sheriffs order. I have been in the war, and I would rather face an en-- my than such a crowd of citizens, with whom I have a fellow feeling, and 1 would not rashly give an order such as has been said I gave.” SOLDIERS GOING HOME. Cincinnati. April J, —A portion of the soldiery being ordered h erne the 13lh and 14th regiments from Hills b iro and Columbus respectively, in cluding the independent companies, Governor’s Guards and Duffy Rifles (colo>j|p) fromColumbusstarted home ward^rhis afternoon. These regiments have been on continuous duty for three days and nights at the court and jail defending the barricades at the most dangerous points ar.d were also the object of attacks from the mob. Before starting to tbe depot the troops were drawn up in a line la-fore the jail and highly congratulatory and commendatory dispatch from Govern or Hoadley was read to them. Tbe governor spoke of the dangers of the position they had defended and of the bravery shown by the officers and men and thanked them heartily for the r soldierly manner in which they had responded to tbe call and dis charged their perilous duly. Troops remaining in the city, not yet on active duty, are the Ist. 2nd, sth, 13lh. 16th and 17th. togetherwilh the batteries, will take the places of those ordered home and will themselves gradually be returned to their respect ive homes. The courts have been re established in the public library buildings. Cop ies of pleadings wil) be substituted for the originals on application to the court. "The grand jury will resume its session at once, and arrangements will be made for a speedy trial of the criminal cases. Members of the bar have appointed a committee to ascertain and report what legislation is necessary to cover tbe loss of the records and legal pa pers. One plan suggested is the estab lishment of a record commissioner to hear and determine the proof of NO. 35. the lost records, and to record the re sult of such records, to be held bv all courts as prima facie evidence of title, or other facts involved. Several sug gestions were made looking to a better administration of the criminal law. A committee of UX! was appointed by the mayor to assist him. It was or ganized permanently by the election o; Hon. v\ m S, Grosbeck, chairman, and Julius Dexter, secretary. ISRAEL S. GET/., of the Governor's guards of Colum bus, died to day at the hospital from the effect of the wound received by the accidental discharge of a guu. The barricades about the court house and jail cease to attract much atten tion. Many people went within the lines to-day to h>ok at the ruins. Quite a number of women were among the sightseers. THE RETURNING BRACKS. Columbus, April t. —An unusual | demonstration attended the return of 1 the Columbus military from Cmcinat u this evening-. At all stations along j the line large crowds were out to greet the men with cheers, and at Cos lambus all the space in and about the depot was jammed with people It is | estimated that 10.000 people were at the depot and along the line of march io the armory when the train arrived J Several hundred sons of the veterans, ex members of the Governor's Guard, Columbus cadets and ex-soldters re ceived the regiment at the depot and Gov. HoadKy also was present to welcome them home. The streets along the line of march were hung with (lags and banners of welcome and a flood of fireworks lighted them to their quarters. Fixing Rates. Pittsburg, April 1. The commit tee of the Western window glass man ufacturers meet here to day to tix card rales.

There is no trace to the robbers. The Presidency. Washington, April 1. The excite ment here is growing quite intense among the slate makers and slate breakers of the presidency. ARTHURS CHANCES I lire admitted on all hands to be grow j ing small by degrees and beautifully less. His do-nothing pohey has not worked as his friends had hoped. Some of his friends are cursing the policy. They say that it is no longer I the rule that a prominent and pro | non need candidate stands any show j .it all, unless lie works, or lat least, allows his friends to ! use all the efforts and power | at his and their commands to acconi | plish the nomination. He has maul | festly fallen into the shade so far as I to be deemed out of the foreground as j a prominent candidate. blaine's boom 1 has pushed to the front so rapidly \ within the past few weeks that it threatens to pset the administration i plans. The tactics of Blaine are ad !mi i a hie. Ho holds constant levees at his house in Lafayette square, which is | daily visited by politicians of all grades and complexions. His hench ; men make it known that he is glad to see and talk with all comers and no body need stand on ceremony. The Manison Blaine is the Mecca to which republican dervish* s and man-worshippers make pil grimage, and they depart apparently benefited by the adoration. Blaine appreciates that these people cannot freely visit the white house not the abodes of cabinet otlicials to pour out their plaints. President Arthur will not talk and silence is the shibboleth of his constitutional advisers. Hence the Blaine latch string hangs out f".r all comers and, like the bee, he gath ers honey from every flower. Arthur as president can not he thus accessible. His programme forbids it and his office prevents it. He is cold ly indifferent; anl this not only pr vents new friends from flocking to him but it repels his old friends, who in the days of his comparative obscur ity fell that they were his equal, and who now are compelled to look at him as invested with that majesty which pertains to the high office fie holds. LOGANS LEVEES are immensely attended by a motley assemblage, but it is plain to every one tiiai his boom is on the wane. SECRETARY LINCOLN I is said to lie disgusted and annoyed .that he should be so popular for the i second place, and yet have no follow i ing for tiie first. It is said that the i marked newspapers sent to him urging him for the second place, are thrown with a sneer into the waste basket un i read. He is vexed that his nodularity and the prestige of his father's name i should be used to bolster up a ticket which he is not deemed fit to lead. | He is the unhappiest man in the list. SECRETARY CHANDLER, jis a soured man. His set backs in New Hampshire, his failure to be the Warwick of the administration, the fact that he is distrusted by both Blaine and Arthur, all combine to make him chafe under the feeling that he is not on the inside in anybody's councils. BLAISE OR A DARK HOR.SK is now the word at Washington. Among the dark horses the name i FAIRCHILD, OF WISCONSIN, has a strong support here. Another Investigation. Fort Smith April L —United States Commander Wheeld* has begun an investigation of the charges preferred against Wm. M. Phillips for misap propriating Indian moneys.

Phillips was attorney for the Chero kees, located at Washington. He was formerly congressman from Kansas. A civil suit is pending against him in the United States court here for the above amount.

Other News. More About Tilden. ' Baltimore. Aim! I.—The Balti more Sun yesterday sent one of its most trusted correspondents to see Samuel J. Tilden. and to-night re ceived a dispatch from him in which occurs the following: Gov. Tilden sat in his easy chair in front of an open fire in his library, at 10 o'clock this morning, looking quite comfortable and satisfied with him self and the outer world. As len lered he arose, and with smiling welcome* extended his hand. Gov ernor 1 ildcn shows scarcely a change in appearance in the last four years, except that his voice may be a trille more feeble. He has a fine, healthy color. Ins hearing is acute and his eye bright as it was twenty years ago. In the course of the conversation he ex pressed himself quite freely several times, but immediately followed his remarks with the injunction that he was not speaking for publication. John Bigelow, who was present, ex plained that Gov. Tilden bail been *o misrepresented in print, soup times, perhaps, unintentionally, that he had determined to authorize no more in lerviows, (!<>v, Tilden asked ! mi' about the progress of i legislation in Washington, | and what the democratic majority of the house would do. He had decided opinions in this respect hut did not | want them recorded. 1 said to hint that there was a very general feeling m political circles in Washington ■ that the democratic parly had gotten I into a muddle, that he was the only ; man who could extricate it and that | his candidacy was a necessity. At this he leaned over close to mv ear and said very slowly and distinctly: I "1 do not want the nomination and | can not take it,” Then he I rejH'ated; “No, 1 can not | give up the peace and quiet | which I enjoy here for four years of toil and strife. lam TO years old and 1 1 cannot do ii.” 1 then said it had been rumored that it was his purpose to write a formal | letter announcing his position with 'regard to the presidency. He said, j “yes, he had thought of that, and it ' was not improbable he would do it, j but not yet.” 1 then suggested that pet haps he would follow the same course us in i ISSO, and entrust the letter to some friend, to be laid before the eouveti (ion when it assembled. He said Bigelow did not want him to write a letter at all. Mr. Bigelow spoke up and said “That is so. There is no sutlieient pretext for writing any letter at the present nor should there beany mis apprehension as to the Tilden attitude on this subject. lie is not called up pon to make any further declaration now.” Upon rising to leave! said to Tilden that his friends and admirers hoped he would enjoy good health and pro longed life. His face brightened as he said: “I have no complaint to make; Ldo enjoy good health. I have no complaint to make on that score. He then raised and let fall each arm, struck out, from both shoulders, and followed this with a vigorous stamping on lir.st one foot and then the other on the carpet, and said quite jocularly: “No paralysis there.” Taking my arm he walked with a firm step the whole length of the spacious library, and partial from me at the door with a cordial grasp of the hand, and a request to convey his kindly regards to his friends in Mary land. tlov. Tilden, adds the corres pondsut, said enough to convince me that he is entirely sincere in his an nonneed disinclination to stand for the presidency; and that he prefers the luxury and elegance of his own splendid home and charm of a small but select circle of congenial friends which centers around him to the white house bauble. But this is no reason why when the democratic convention meets that it should not nominate Tilden, if its members think he is the best avail able man. A responsibility would then l>e fixed upon him which, how ever much he may imagin'* to the contrary, it is impossible for him to realize now. Oh, Then They Are Not Particular Pittsburg, April 1.
