Mr. Blair's Folly.
It appear to ot that Mr. Montgom
ery Blair ! on a wild goose chase in bin
attempt to ont Mr. Hayes from the
Presidency. Ai far a the masses of
the people are concerned they consider
the matter settled. In fact, the gnat
incentive to a submission to the decis
ion of the Electoral Commission, was
the desire of the people for a settle
ment of the question. They did not
place such a high estimate on the mer
its of either candidate as to prcler

Quite an interesting pigeou-shoot-iug

tributed a foul deed to t tie bloody cat
alogue. The murders in Kentucky are
becomiug fearfully numerous. List
year there were oue hundred and fifty,
and only one hanging occurred. Siuce
the first of January the average is
larger thau in any three months of last
year. There is only one way to stop
this infernal business aud that is to
make the ltw abouie!y supreme, and
tbe gibbet, with baiter attached, a very
prouiiucni object of couteinplaiion be
fore the eyes of the brutes. I
The suggestion in the last senteuce
of the above extract is as applicable to
this Staie as It is to Kentucky.

rest. No considerable uutnber of poo
pie iu this country believed that tbe
country would be in aiiy very great
j danger under the rule of cither one of
the contestants. The majority, ot
course, wanted a fair decision, but as
I thero was room for honest differences
j of opinion, and a determination that
means should be taken to guara
attains! tbe recurrence of a limi
Isr crisis, the supreme desire
of the masses was for a decision that
would end tha controversy. Mr. Blair
rises np and attempts to prove that tbe
decision has not decided. He it en
gaged in a work that can end in no
good, but it may produce useless agile-
lion and evil. He may prove to Dcm
ocrats who are already convinced of
that fact, that Mr. Tllden wat fairly
elected President, but be can never con
vince Republicans, who do not want to
be convinced, and he can never accom
plisb the unseating of Mr. Hayes. He
pretends to believe that Uayet can be
expelled and Tllden seated within tix'y
days, and that it should ciose no more
commotion than a change in any petty
office. He talks like an impracticable
dreamer. There it nothing harder In
(hit country than to unseat a de facto
official, even where the law pointt out
a method. In tbe case of tbe President
there is uo method. Our Conttitution
and lawt are btre of provisions In this
respect, for it was never contemplated
by auv oue that a President would
be fraudulently installed. The de
cision of the Electoral Commit
sion was tbe decision of Congress,
and the inauguration was the legitimate
teauence of that decision. Mr. BUir
bat the reputation of being a shrewd
politician, and be may imagine that po
litical influences sufficiently powerful
to accorapliib bit purpose may be ex
erted. If be does think this, be is sad
ly mistaken. Tbe South will have none
of this foolishness. Lsmar, Hill,
Hooker, Gordon, and all those who
stood by the Electoral Law, will abide
by itt legitimate effect. There is a very
strong belief, fonnded on common
situs and sound judgment, th it there
are very few politicians in this country
who would not have done just as Mr
Hayes did. Tbe number of politicians
iu America, who are to pure that they
would refuse tbe Presidency if attain
able by tho decision of an E cctoral
Commission, is exceedingly small. Tbe
number is so limited that wo don'
think Mr. Montgomery Blair, or Mr.
S.J. Tildeu is embraced iu it. Tbe poo
pie look at this question In this prac
tlcal sort of a way, and Mr. Blair's ef
forts are more likely to injure bit
nartv. than tbey are to overthrow a
President.

A SECRET WIDDINO FOLLOWED BI THE
SUICIDE OF TUB BRIDEGROOM.
Special to the Mew York Sun.
Baltimore, March 20. A secret
wedding, followed by the suicide of
tbe bridegroom of a mouth, produced
a tentaiiou iu tne neignuoruuou oi
Harlem Prk, a fashionable cectiou of
Ibis city, to-day. Tbe bride and widow
at Min Mary tmerain, an estima
ble and beautiful young woman, and
the bridegroom, Charles L. Smith, n
young man of twenty-two. Ho hud
been a visitor at MUt Elderkiu's resi
dence for several months, but it was
not known that they were engaged, or
tbat their iuiimacy was of such
a character as 10 lead to the
belief that tbey contemplated
matrimony. It teems, however,
tbat on tbe evening of February 6th
they called privately at tne iriuity
Enisconal Church, aud, with only the
sexton as a witness, were married by
the rector, the Rev. U- A. Ulazeorook.
Miss Mary returned to the home of her
mother and Mr. Smith to his boarding
bouse, in tbe tame neighborhood,
where her sister and only near relative
also lived. About week ago a broth
er of the bride discovered her secret,
and, call'ng upon Smith for an explan
ation, the latter acknowledged the mar
riage. He taid he had secured a tuite
of rooms and wat about furuisbing
them. Previout to thit, while spend
init the evening with a friend in tbe
comnanv of Miss Elderkin, they ac
knowledged tbat tbey had been secret
ly married a few weeks before.
Last night, a few minutes before
midnight, Mr. Merchant, ion of tbe
lady with whom Smith boarded, and
who occupied the tame room with
him, upon entering hit apartment was
startled at finding Smith'! dead body
on tbe floor, covered with blood. A
anven- barreled revolver, with one
chamber discharged, wai found along
side tbe corpse. A bullot-holo in
Smith't bead and a pool of blood on
the floor told the atory ot the suicide.
Two letters were found on the body.
One was addressed to Mrs. Merchant,
requeuing her to give it to "Mamie,"
fense to tbe Emperor. If the coold not
make ot give It, the would take Beit-
arable by force, and armed resistance!
would be fatal for Uoumania.
Tbe dispatch concludes, "notwith
standing these threats, we persist in
our refusal to yield'
to eay respecting tbe preliminary treaty
the baa mada with Turkey. A mora
moderate r quest could hardly oa
made, and to dealgnate It, as waa don
yesterday by tha deputation, aa a war
