Cjnce 123 Main Street. ASHTABULA. OHIO. Friday Morning, June 15th, 1877. Motley, the diplomat and historian, died in England on the 30th tilt Prof. Langston assures his colored breth ren that the President means well to them. lit Carmel, 111., so lately devastated by a hurricane, is calling on the public for help to tide over their sufferings and loss. Some of the N. York journals assent that Tilden the reformer, will be a candi date for the V. S. Senate, to succeed Senator Conkling, whose term expires in 1879, should there be a hopeful chance in the stripe of the Legislature. In salaries alone the courts of New York city cost over a million of dollars. There are forty-seven judges employed with salaries ranging from sil to fifteen thousand dollars each. It pays to be judge in New York. Hope springs eternal in the Democratic politician's breast Already Pendleton and Ewing are anticipating a Democratic Tietory in Ohio next fall, and scent the United States Senatorship from afar. Both are greenbackers of the most pro nounced stamp. The Republican State Convention, which will be held in Cleveland, August 1, will be composed of 651 delegates. The apportionment of delegates in the counties composing the 19th Congressional District is as follows: Ashtabula, 14; Geauga, 6; Lake, 6; Portage, 8; Trumbull, 14. The ladies of the Presbyterian Church will give a strawberry and Ice-cream party at the residence of Mr. J. P. Robertson on Wednesday Evening next Jnne 29th- Ad mission to grounds 10 cents. Refresh ments Strawberries, Ice-Cream and Cake, 15 cents. All are cordially invited to at tend. The meanness of the man who would steal coppers from the eyes of a dead ne- ero is proverbial, but he has found his equal in the post-master at West Point Mississippi, one Pate, who has just been dismissed from his office for appropriating part of the bounty money of colored pen sioners. The State officers to be chosen at the next October election in Ohio, are as fol lows: Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Judge of the the Supreme Court, Attorney General Clerk of the Supreme Court, Treasurer of State, State Commissioner of Common Schools, Member of Board of Pub lic Works. The French republio which MacMahon is attempting to overthrow at the bidding of the Ultramontane party, is the highest and best form of Government that France has seen for a life-time. Under its firm and intelligent rule France has been peace ful, prosperous and progressive. But the republic does not please the papists. Sweeny gets off with f 400,000, or about 20 per cent of his stealings. This is a very liberal basis of compromise, for Mr. Swee ny, but is perhaps better for the city of New York than nothing at all. Tweed feels happy over the result and hopes to be able to compromise on equally favorable terms. Oakey Hall will come back and ap pear once more in "The Crucible." On the first day of June, after an ab sence of seventeen long years, the much dreaded locusts made, their appearance in the State of New Jersey, covering the whole district of the Orange Mountains and eating all before them. "In less than twenty minutes after they leave the shell, " writes an astonished native, "they begin to feed, and whatever they touch dies." No Americans have ever been the recipi ent of the distinguished honors and atten tions from Royalty that have been confer red upon General Grant sinpe his arrival in England. The knowledge of this must be rather unpalatable to those who through his administration have poured upon him their vials of wrath and vituperation. The Daily Nation, referring to the dis placement of government employes, re marks: It is not right that men should . serve the government faithfully for many years and be turned out upon the world when old age renders them less efficient Congress should provide for the retirement of civil service officials upon half-pay. Not to do so, is unjust and unbecoming a great nation. A discussion of the Utah troubles in cab inet meeting was had on Friday last, and after a somewhat lengthy sitting, in which U. S. Attorney Howard of that territory, took part, prosecutions for complicity in the Mountain Meadow massacre were pret ty thoroughly considered. It was agreed that the U. S. authorities in that territory should proceed with firmness in the prose cution, until all the offenders be brought to justice. me rresbytenan Uenerai Assembly is not yet prepared to express sorrow and con tritlon, On Tuesday the Assembly decided by a large majority that the time of for mal fraternal relations had not yet come, and that until the Southern Assembly stood ready to meet the Northern Asssem bly in full equality, making for itself no confession for the past and demanding none from this Assembly, correspondence The prices at the coal auctions recently held were much lower than at the last pre vious sales, the decline reaching, in some grades, at the sale held latest in the day, the remarkable figure of 65 cents. When jt is remembered that the coal companies, some weeks since, met in counoil, and gravely adopted a resolution that on the 1st of June prices should be advanced 50 cents a ton, and that adequate measures for that purpose should be adopted, this preak down of prices is very significant The Democrats agree to hold their State Convention upon th twenty-fifth of July, Of late year they have waited until the Republicans had met and put their candi dates into the field, and then arranged their campaign accordingly, but this year hej are week ahead of the Republicans. Tbey have not yet been entirely oured of the Inflation mania, and there seems to be tome of the party who desire to ride the horse which so disastrously threw them two years ago. It is almost Inconceivable that a party could in '75 advocate an nn - limited issue of irredeemable paper money, and in '76 advooate an exclusively gold ba sis lor circulation, and in '77 adopt again the repudiated heresy of '75, but the Dem ocratic party is neither sorupulous nor consistent It will be as lone as it ia nor. mitted to burden the earth without sinoer- uy or conviotion, faithless to everything bnt tricks to get its followergjnto office. The ChicIgTTaoTtake muoh Uk in Secretary Evarts' theoryof remon euzatlon. From a correspondent's report ran jnterview, the oome( to following conclusion: "The remonetiza- point, of the administration's policy, it eems, and it may U J w,th,as one of th. weakest and most ytetoE The monetUatton of plg.)ron w would hardly be worse than affixing an ! bltrary paying power to a mu&, the prio. of whioh ha fluctuated two or three per oent in the last six months." A beautiful complexion depend upon the parity of the blood. To keep the blood pur, and healtbv, use Dr. i!;' Blood MUturg, ly at t a We believe it was Jackson who, in a cri sis in public affairs, said that "the right is always expedient" Senator Morton, while expressing his conviction that Chamber lain and Packard were fairly ela ted Gov ernors of their respective States, and that the Republicans clearly had the right on their side of the question, said that expedi ency required that the right should Ih- ig nored. This does not sound as though the days of compromises in our National politics were over, as some imagined when the rehellion was suppressed. It was several months prior to the C'hi solm murders, that Gov. Stone, of Missis sippi, sent a dispatch to the Attorney Gen eral of the United States, declaring that he was "more than willing to execute the laws of Mississippi and conserve the public peace," and that he was able to bring all perpetrators of wrong to justice, and was determined to do so." His entire failure to take steps to bring the assassins of the Chisolms to justice, show that his promises and pledges are worthless. When the wrong doers are white or colored Republicans, then look out for lynchings and murders. It takes one back to the old lawless times in the West to read of the discovery of a gang of land piraUs who have been "oper ating" in Illinois and Missouri for two years. MurrelL the bandit ws supposed to be one of the last of his race, though later rascals, like the Younger family, have imitated his deeds. The gang just found in Missouri was organized with sundry modem improvements, one of which was the engagement of a cunning scoundrel who conducted "revival meetings," in or der to draw crowds of respectable people and thus facilitate the stealing of good horses. The management of the band, whose exploits included noarly every crime in the calendar and in boldness and ingen uity has no parallel nnless it be found in the management of life insurance compa nies. The United States District Attorney in the district which includes the scene of theChishnlm murders, in Mississippi, has undertaken an investigation of the facts, for the purpose of seeing whether there is any power in the Federal law to secure justice in the premises. The feature given to this horrible affair by government in terference is a rather pleasant one to con template, but the hopefulness of meting out justice to the demons engaged in it, even were there U. S. cognizance of the crime, is not so pleasant While the tem per of the vicinage is favorable to assassi nation and murder for correcting poetical opinions, there can be no punishment, for no jury of peers could be drawn that would convict Though Gov. Stone says no one aDDrovei of the crimes committed, it is perfectly plain that no one in DeKalb thinks of punishing them. The only re sult of the District Attorney's action must be to demonstrate more completely the helplessness of the Federal Government to protect its citizens within the sacred lines of State jurisdiction. Then this rash ofh- cerought to remember how extremely 'ir ritating" his course will be to the "sensi tive honor" of the proud citizens of De Kalb, who, if they are not above slaughter ing women and children to get revenge on a defenceless man, are wholly above being reminded of it by "foreign" interlopers. An energetic movement says the N. Y. Times is on foot in the W est to secure what is called the "remonetization" of sil ver. By tnis is meant tne passage oi a law making the silver dollar of 412 gruins, 900 fine, a legal tender for all debts, and authorizing its unlimited coinage. The movement has some strength which did not belong to that for the inflation of the paper currency, because, wnne it com mands the support of all the paper-money inflationists, it is also sustained by some papers and some public men who were not to be counted on the side of the paper craze. The arguments advanced in favor of making silver an unlimited legal tender, without restriction upon its coinage, are various, and many of them are brought forward with a show of enthusiasm, a pro found expression of patriotism, and a gen erally sentimental air which strikes a cool observer very comically. Practically, how ever, these arguments may be summed up in a single one. ' Paper dollars are now worth in gold $93.78 to the $100; silver, at the ruling prices in London for the last few weeks, is worth a trifle over $90 to the $100. Ten months ago silver was worth less than $80 to the $100. What the silver men desire, therefore, is an opportunity to pay debts in cheap money. OUR NEW YORK LETTER. Horses—The Ring Suits—The French Gift to New York—The Gamblers— Fire-Works—Business. HORSES. racing season was inaugurated week, with usual brilliancy. Jerome Park was crowded with the fashion of the city, and some very good time was made by the steppers. The amount of money invested in fast goers in this city is enormous. Robert Bonner, the Ledger man, has near ly a half-million in this kind of property; some of his horses being worth $30,000, if they could be bought at all. The Loril- lards, the Lenoxes, and all rich families consider it essential to their standing to have more or less good horse-flesh, and any fine day there can be seen in the park hun dreds of horses who can make time veiy low down in the thirties; every young man of fashion thinking it necessary to have his fast horse. The late Helmbold had $50,- wu in norses wnen he exploded. It is a pretty sight to see the fast horses out on a fine day in the park, and the drives there about; many of the teams being driven by ladies, who get to be as skillful with the whip as their male escorts; women all like good horses, and it is a passion with them w ttnve. There is no better business than the breeding and fitting of fine horses, t h St 0rdinai7 tind of carriage horses that have any style at all are worth $1,200 a pair; and the, run from that, according m, " mng' P to 3.00; this, without any particular .peed. Give a horse speed in addition to style, Bnd the j . nMoHa fn a xr eat hio For this grade of stock the market is overl stocked. There is constantly cowing in wealthy men who can afford to pay these prices for what they fancy, and it is now iL it- ' ' mi iuuro man ever me iasnioq. nere are enough of poor horses, and they sell as cheaply here as anywhere, but good horses are always in demand, and always at a very high price. THE RING SUITS. compromised Sweeney for about one-tenth of what he really stole. This leaves the Sweenys rich; but Boss Tweed, it is said by those who profess to know bis exact circumstances, will be left comparitively poor; but the Boss does not care for that ; he made friends when he had power, and he believes he can rally his old followers, and be once more the arbiter of New Ypric politics; all he wants is to got out of jail, and get a chance to utter his war-cry once more. The old gangs who never had so srenerous a navm&sUir will ml. around him. and he obtain so much power in the oity as to make him essential to the more rrwthl politicians; and then it will take no time all for him to get back .11 the money he lost, and more. He is unquestionably the most popular man in the oity; that is heoangrtthe greatest following amonir h.ll a8,WJh0WieM Politi"l Pw.r here lway. divided fairly what he stole, and thr nn the lesser plunderers sigh for his leadership again ; they never lived as well as when he was at the head; he has had a hard time of it for a few years, but he is still strong enough to make it lively again. Yester day, the la-t of the absconders, Richard B. Connol'y. compromised with the city, and will return to his native land. Connolly returns to the city fl.-HlO.boO. The real reason for the settlement is that it cost- so much to prosecute these men, that, if the city should recover all that was stolen, it would inevitably go into the hands of law yers and for other court expenses: what is gotten now will go to the city direct. It is curious, but defaulters can never stay aav from their country. Possessed of millions Counollv had all his in bonds they were still 6uteats and vagabonds. They were admitted into no society; they had no associations except among them selves, and their life was one of constant annoyance and discomfort. Connolly has been tiring to get back for a year, and he is doubtless the happiest man to-day on the globe. He will come back to New York and with his old associates take charge of the Democracy of New York again, and may assist Tilden in another cauipaign for reform. A DISGRACE. Visitors to the Philadelphia Exposition will remember a Colossal Bronze arm and l -lt-ll: 1, . ... uauu iiuiuing aioic a torcn, wnicn was on exhibition there. This is a part of a statue entitled, "Liberty Enlightening th World," paid for bv citizens of Paris, and donated to this country to be set up as beacon light on Bedloe's Island, at the en trance of the harbor of the city. Th statue is of gigantic size, and the light from the torch illuminates a vast space. The statue is here, but ew York is too mean to raise money to set it up, and there is a good prospect that it will never be taken out of the cases. It is a disgrace that the great city has not the courtes and public spirit to make use of so gener ous and appropriate a gift THE GAMBLERS are having a hard time of it ; the softs who have heretofore bled for their benefit hav not now the money to squander, and th poor gamblers are falling one by one. Thi effects of John Chamberlain, next to Mor risey, the most noted faro banker in th city, were sold at auction last week, an the rich furniture of his palace brought very small prices; it was a gorgeous con cern three years ago. Every .night at 12, a supper was set in the place, free to all that could not have been had at Delmoni co's for less than $5 a plate, to say nothing of wines; the most expensive dishes, cook ed and served by French artists, with the most gorgeous service, and. in a mugniQ cently appointed room, was free to who ever chose to sit down to it. In those day it was nothing for rich men to lose their il , . 1 1 r.. . . . uiousanus mere, ana inamberJaiu was very rich; but he could not avoid gain bling himself, and he would invest in race tracks at Long-Branch, and go into a great many speculations, and the hard times came on and fools either hadn't the money or had grown wiser, and so Chamberlain came to grief, fie is a poor man to-dav and will stay so for the present ; such men thrive when money is made easily. Mor- risey is more acute; when the times were flush, he invested his profits in good shape and drew out of all kinds of gambling ex cept that which could be run very cheaplv. Something like twenty gambling houses have closed within the month; not by law, but by what is stronger than law, hard times. One of them went to Deadwood leaving three wives and innumerable cred itors, lhe wives were ignorant of each other s existence, till they all met at his place to see what had become of him. An other found himself ruined one night, and he did the world the only service he ever did, by blowing his brains out, in his rooms where thousands had been ruined. Others are keeping bars that business flourishes yet and a greater number are living upou tne women they once supported in luxury, it is a bad time for gamblers. FIRE-WORKS. are moving vigorously to have the authorities prohibit the use of hre-works, on the coming Fourth and for ever after, except such as shall be used by the city in its regular demonstration. It is to be hoped that thev will succeed. Eve ry Fourth of July the hospitals are crowd ed with persons injured by fire-works in the hands of the reckless gamins, who de light in them ; and every year there is long list of property destroyed by the same agency. It is no small matter to have nundred thousand little wretches armed with crackers, torpedoes and the scores of other .missiles, throwing them everywhere among horses and men, and into buildin It is a wonder that the experience of Port land is not more frequently repeated JNew iork will be spared this terror, this year, and other cities should follow the ex ample. BUSINESS is frightfully bad, and there is every reason to suppose it will so continue till the fall crops move, 'lhe South is doing rather more than usual, but the North and West are buying but little.
