QffU 126 Main Street. ASHTABULA. OHIO. Friday Morning, April 27th, 1877, The question of next Speaker is about narrowed down to Garfield and RandalL Boss Tweed'8 so-called con.e. published last week, is not held New York. Said above suspicion in to be a sell, in tne maiu Fn....u.., at least. ' ' Sterling, the tramp, who after out raging, murdered Lizzie Grumback- - er, near Youngstown, suffered the .full penalty of the law by being - bung on Saturday. Next Monday the State Legisla ture adjourns, tine die. There will be halls, hotels and boarding houses deserted in Columbus, and a decline may be expected in the price of bash. On ilondav last, there remained but seven seats unoccupied in the Louisiana Legislature. The election of TJ. S. Senators, will no doubt fur nish occupants for these. Judge Spofford carried the Democratic caucus on the same day as a candi date for that position. Elected on Tnesday. A Chicago hotel-keeper says its all . very well to demand that rope lad ders be placed in the upper rooms to fascilitate escape in case of fire, but what be wants to know is, who is to stand constantly outside to intercept the transient guests thus provided at all times with a ready means of slip ping away without paying their bills. A caucus of Republican Senators was held at Columbus, on Tuesday morning to consider the question of final adjournment. No decision was reached, but it is the opinion of leading Senators that adjournment will not be reached earlier than May 7th, and possibly will occur a week later. Almost the entire day was spent by the Senate in passing one of the .three bills to codify the criminal statutes, and nowjit goes back to the House for concurrence in numerous amendments. A Democratic paper in Iowa says that some of the leading Democrats of the State are considering the. ad visability of making a radical move ment in favor of President Ilayes and his policy; it being no less than to send deligations to the Republi can convention, and not only partic ipate in them but effect a union with the conservative element of the Re publican Party, and perhaps, after a while, turn in and help hold the of fices. Several ex-Senators and other per sons whose reputations have suffered by the alleged confession of Tweed were before the Albany Investiga tion Committee on Monday last, and denied positively that they ever saw a cent of the $200,000 that was passed around to secure the ring charter. Nobody can be found who took anv of the monev. The checks w " were produced on Hugh Hastings, but this gentleman declares that none of the monev ever passed out ot his hands for corrupt purposes, A new railroad movement is fore shadowed in the Chicago Tribune, which announces that Jay Gould has been buying up stock and bonds nt the IMichicran Central, so that it 0 will form another link in his trans' continental line. The new slate pro vides for the retirement of Sloan and the New York Central interest, and the admission of Sydney Dil lion, David Dows, "W. L. Scott and Albert Keep, of the Union Pacific and Northwestern combination, This move will be disastrous for the Great "Western, because Gould has got control of the Canada Southern, which has passed out of Yander- bilt's hands, and the Eastern busi ness will be done over that line. This will give him a line from Buf falo to Ogden. The Erie is likely eoon to come into his hands again and the Central cannot then afford to fight him, as they are entirely de pendent upon his lines. Senator Wade has been giving ex pression to his sentiments with re gard to the Southern policy of the administration. In a letter to a gen tleman in "Washington, on the 9th inst, he talks plainly, and in view of the supposed accord between himself and Gov Hayed with regard to sev curing the freedom of the slaves of the South, he declares in his strong language that in the development of the Southern policy of the Gov ernment, he has been "deceived, be trayed, and even humiliated." The letter is characteristically outspoken and differs from the views of other Republicans, who are watching with considerable solicitude, the Presi dent's Southern policy, in this, that while they are disposed to give the President free scope for the develop ment ot nis policy, ne looks upon t hat policy as sufficiently developed already for a declaration of opinion regarding its effect upon the Republi can party, while Republicans gener ally look upon the President as true - rm V to principal, mere is an appreuen sion pretty generally felt, that the pledges ot vaae nampiou, mat seem to be so implicitly credited by the President, are treated with more respect and confidence than tney are entitled to, and that keeping faith with such fellows is not to be enter tained. But here is the letter: a is - JEFFERSON, Ohio, April 9, 1877. Mr. V. S. Painter, Washington, D. C: My Dear Sir: Your letter of the 5th was duly received. You ask whether I re member what I said in faTor of President Hayes in my endeavor to procure his nom ination at the Cincinnati Convention. I do remember it, after what has since tran spired, with indignation and a bitterness of soul that I never felt before. You know with what untiring zeal x labored for the emancipation of the slaves of the South, and to procure justice for them before and during the time I was in Congress, and I supposed Gov. Haves was in full accord with me on this subject. But I have ben deceived, betrayed, and even humiliated by the course he' has taken to a degree that in I have not language to express. During the first month of his Admini.tron we find him closeted with two of the worst and most malicnant enemies of the colored race that can be found iu all that siave cursed repion, and there consulting with those malefactors how best he can put these colored people nnder the iron heel of their most bitter enemies, and reduce them to a condition infinitely worse than before ihey were made free. I feel that to bare eman cipated these people, and then to leave them unprotected would be a crime as in famous as to have reduced them to slavery when they were free. And for Haves to do this to the men who had. at the hazard of their lives, given him the votes without which he never could have had the power to do this terrible injustice ! No doubt he meditates the destruction of the party that elected him. A contem plation of all this fills me with amazement and inexpressible indignation. My only consolation is that history informs me that better men than I ever pretended to be, have in like manner been deceived. Some have attempted to excuse him bv saving that he "means well" hnt hell is paved with just such good intentions. Tralv ' B. F. WADE. Easter Question. The formal declaration of war by Russsia was made public on Tuesday. Mean while, the Russian forces are being massed on the left bank of the Pruth, leads along the line of rail road and which terminates on the Moldavian frontier. The passage of the Pruth will be, as it was in 1854, the first overt act of war, and the occupation of Roumanian territory which will follow that step will call for some positive action on the part of the powers which guaranteed the independence of that State. Rou mania is the theatre of the opening hostilities of the campaign, though the Turks may not make any decid ed stand short of the strong places on the Danube which mark the southern boundary of the provinces united under the rule of Prince Charles. As that potentate has made an appeal for advice and guid ance to the guaranteeing powers, Austria and England, at least, may be expected to define before long what interpretation they attach to their assumed obligation of neutrality. OUR NEW YORK LETTER. OUR NEW YORK LETTER. The Tweed Confession — Business Troubles —A Neat Trick—Rum Politics. THE TWEED CONFESSION. Now, everybody knows why Oa key Hall ran away to Europe. It was as I said, Tweed. The Boss had made up his mind to split on bis associates; Hall got wind of it in time, and flitted. Tweed's expose is a curious and instructive piece of reading. It shows that the plunder- ing of the city and State was not the growth of time but that it was a plot, made deliberately ad very - , , , ., caretnlly worked up as to detail, and one which required a great deal of , . . 'cic 10 etjuiiiji- insr amonc the Democratic noliti- c , : i . , ciaus ana explanations are tne order of the day. Men who have hereto- fore stood well in the community are quietly slipping off to Europe, and those who stay are fortifying themselves with proof to make some of a show against the damaging disclosures of the old man in Lud- low Street. Several Republicans are already implicated, and it is ex- pected that more will be. He bad tools in the Kepublican camp of course. Or el8e he Could not Of eot the .Legislation at Albany necessary to carry out his purposes. twenty millions of dollars were distributed, and the Boss, no more guilty than the others, has had to bear the brunt ot tne wnoie tning. 111s snare ot the plunder has been spent m litiga-1 tion; he has grown old in dodging prosecutions and now is a wreck fi nancially and in reputation, while those who were his associates in vil lainy are living comfortably and in good odor on their shares. And what vexes the old man more than anything else is that those who made the most of it are those who were the first to turn upon him. Between his rage and his desire to get out he is making wild work among the Democratic politicians. In anticipa tion of suits to recover, scores of them are conveying their property to their wives and brothers, and scores more are missing altogether. The confession is a bomb-6hell ex ploded in the very heart of the camp, and the consternation is wide spread. BUSINESS TROUBLES. New York has long been worried by the discrimination of the rail roads against it, and now the Eu ropean steamers are giving the city twist. Cargoes are brought cheap er from Liverpool to Boston, Phila delphia and Baltimore than to New York, and hence the howl. The rea- west from New York is the Central, and the Central is managed by a Yanderbilt, and the most pig-head- ed of all the Vanderbilts. The ennsyivania and Baltimore roads lay in with the steamships and agree to carry to loieao, Ohieago, St. Lou- ana Cincinnati tor a less rate of . 1 y-i 1 treigDt tnan ine central will, and consequently tne ireigbt goes to those cities.

Its trade is being pared off here and sliced off there, till the diminution is seriously felt and occasions alarm; what can be done? The city is the hands of the class of Democ racy who have no interest in its pros perity, and who know nothing about 1 It 101 it and care less, and so the merchants and manufacturers suffer. A NEAT TRICK. also visited, either by note or in per sort 80n ana they are paying handsomly that their guilt may not find them The neatest, cleanest swindle that ever was perpetrated, was done in this city last week. Upjn Twenty third street is a house of assignation frequented only by the very bluest blooded, of the aristocracy. If a married lady from Murray Hill goes beyond moral limits, it is at this bouse that she meets her lover, and if a rich man has an unlawful love it is at this bouse that he meets her. It is so quiet and so safe that none of its frequenters ever had the slightest fear of being disturbed, by the police or any one else. Last Friday night the house was full, when, to the horror of the eminently respectable sinners the police surrounded it, and the occupants were marched out of their rooms into the grand parlors, where the sergeant of the squad re viewed them. Of course every one saw eyery other one, and quite a number f surprises were the conse quence. The parties were all so re spectable that the sergeant let them off with a modicum of good advice, and they departed considering themselves lucky at escaping so easily. Alas! For those highly re spectable people! They had little difficulty in recognizing each other, except three gentlemen who were strangers to all the rest. The next day one of the respectables was call ed upon by one of the three unknown men. They recognized each other and smiled a ghastly grin. "Rath er ugly thing, that last night," said unknown. "Indeed it was" replied the respectable. fThe idea of bring ing us all together in the parlor, where every one present might and did see every other one! said un known. "It was outrageous," re plied respectable, "but each one will be compelled to keep it a secret tor his own sake." "Yes," replied the , - , unknown significantly, "unless there rnitrht ha been one or two prese nt who had as soon be known as, not, having nothing' to lose, way, Mr. , I have, a By the note for $5,000 to Dav this afternoon, and I am short; will you be good enough to accommodate me with the amount for a few days?" Mr. looked at the stranger for a minute the stranger smiled, Mr. saw the character of the man, and without another word wrote a cheque for the amount. And as every one of the respectables received a call, the r , , object or which was the same, from one of the three unknown, it is evi- ' aeni enougn mat ine luree were iu .,ll0;nn r;t'h tho -nnlipo nnd nnssi- - 1 1 i 1 . . . . . hly W1th the keeper of tne House, and that it was a verv nrettv scheme 1 1 of blackmailing most audaciously devised and skillfully carried out, The ladies present that night were out. Moral be virtuous, and you may bid the black-mailers defiance RUM There is trouble among the rum oollora A otrict. inr.prnrt.atinrf of the laws makes it impossible for the excise commissioners to grant licen ses to any except tayern keepers, ani tne commissioners in New York an(j Brooklyn have resolved to ad- here to the law, and prosecute all others selling. Already several hun dred suits have been commenced against liquor dealers who do not suwirdinor t.n tho law keen inns or I 0 1 I taverns. The law is that licenses . .1 shall not be granted to any one who I I , - :.v aoes not Keep inree spare ueus, witu 1 proper bedding, for the accommoda- tion of ernests. which of course none ' I -fit 1 1 A tn ui bile DaiuuiiB ur uais ujcicuu iw, The law officers will push it, for they can get their costs and fees, and consequently there will be trou ble. The temperance associations See in this an opportunity for a new rr J crusade Upon mm, and the dealers ... , . , . r are girding Up their loins for a Vlg- OrOUS d efense of what they consider I their rights. There will be a. vast amount of speech-making. And a vast number of arrests, but it will all amount to nothing. Liquor- sell ing cannot be restricted in a popu lation like that of New York, where a large majority of the people drink, and where rum is an element in politics and makes and unmakes politicians. Rum can elect whoever it chooses, for that interest is solid, while the opposition to it is always divided. But. triero will ha a livclv POLITICS. President Hayes is gaining ground in this city every day. Business men f all parties are wheeling into line in his support, while they are divided somewhat as to the wisdom of his southern policy they are will- ing to give it a fair trial, and they toe ' " all support heartily his efforts to re- form the civil service.

Tel. The amendment to. the Gen eral Appropriation Bill made in the Senate to reimburse the treasury of Ashtabula Co. to the extent of f 1,200, for expenses con nected with the Coroner's inquest, was de feated in the House yesterday, with only sixteen affirmative votes out of one hun dred and eleven members. The only rea son I can give for this is the personal spite of members from the central and southern portions of the State against Mr. Howland on account of his strenuous opposition to the notorious class of claims known as the " Morgan Raid Claims," which have been persistently urged year after year. McLain, chairman of the Finance ' Com mittee of the House, favors the amendment, and in fact the whole committee voted for it. The Senate will insist upon its amend ment and the matter will have to be ad justed in a committee of conference. It would be a very good plan to send a few good men to Columbus to urge the claims of the county. The Legislature will prob ably adjourn on the 7th of May. WM. EAMES, JR. Columbus, April 25.
