Unfortunate Accident.—On Wed
nesday night last, shortly after the steam
er Belvidere had left Buffalo City, Mr.
Tunstall, who had been conversing with
the engineer, walked out on the guards to
iook at some high cliff's they were passing,
unfortunately stepped into the river and
was drowned. Captain Ship who was at
the wheel and hearing a shout, stopped
the boat, thinking that some of the deck
nanus nau lanen uveruouiu, uui uumuy
none missing, the engineer slated that Mr.
Tunstall had left him but a few minutes,
and search being made, be could not be
found. Every effort was used to find the
body, but had not been discovered up to
the hour of going to press.—("Jacksonport
RfeajP Gov. Bonham, of South Carolina,
now Representative in Congress from the
Fourth District of that State, has recently
written a letter in favor of the represen
tation of South Carolina in the Demo
cratic Convention at Charleston. We
quote the following, from the letter, which
shows his detestation of Douglas :
I believe it is admitted that by the aid
of the votes he will be able to get from the
Black Republican States, and others,
which wM probably go against the Demo
cratic party in the election itself, he will
go into the Convention with a larger vote
than any other candidate.
But let us anaylize this vote. The one
hundred and twenty Southern votes and
the seven votes of the Pacific slope Judge
Douglas cannot obtain, in the first instance,
before the Convention; so that if he gets
the entire remaining Northern vote^vhich
is very probable), he will enter the Con
vention with one hundred and seventy-six
votes. Ninety-one of these, as before
stated, neither he rior any other Democrat
I will probably get in the Electoral Col
I leges. The remaining eighty-five votes
j are from the doubtful States of New Jer
I sey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiaua, Illinois
and Minnesota, one half of which, at
least, will support the Republican candi
! date for President, and the other half
j would as soon, perhaps sooner, vote for a
sound Southern Democrat than for Judge
Douglas himself; so that the probable
available vote with which Judge Douglas
will enter the Convention will not exceed
; forty-two. * * * *
It is an insult to the South to ask her to
vote for him, for it implies that she will
sell her principles for a false tiiumph, or
yield them through fear of her enemies.
A Specimen Brick or Douglas’ Home
Popularity.—Long John Wentworth, the
Republican candidate, was elected Mayor of
Chicago, the borne of Douglas, by 1,24S ma
jority, and the remainder of the ticket by
about the tame majority.
" How to be Elected."—Under this
caption the Washington Star uses the fol
lowing language:—•• The late apparent
election of ex-Lieut. Governer Ford, of
Ohio, to be the House Printer, was
doubtless the result of a regular bargain
by and through which the profits (in this
case spoils)of the office were to he divided
out as follows, Viz: The expenses of Mr.
Defrees, of Indiana, in his recent chase
after the office to be first paid out of them
and then the balance to be divided out—20
per cent, to Mr. Hanscomb, of Maine or
or Massachusetts, a correspondent of the
New York Hprald at present; 20 per cent,
to Mr Panghorn. an editor of a Boston
Republican party paper, who has been
writing letters from this city during the
session: 20 per cent, to Mr. Moran, of
Philadelphia, a nominal American party
newspaper man, representing the "Peo
ple’s party” interest in the transaction; 20
per cent, to be divided between Mrs.
Bailey, of the National Era, and Mr.
Ex-candidate Mitchell, of the St. Louis
Daily News; and 20 per cent, to be
reserved by Mr. Ford for himself. Who
says the public printing does not require
to be reformed ?”
The Speaker's Paoe.—A Washing
ton correspondent writes:
At present the main stay of Speaker
Pennington is the page who stands upon
the right, a youth of fine appearance, and
something near 19 years of age. This
page was first appointed to office by
Speaker Boyd, and has ever since contin
ued to discharge the duties of "page to
the Speaker,” among which is now reck
oned that of prompting the Speaker in
discharging his business. He stands near
the Speaker, and directs him in an under
tone how to put every motion and how to
decide points of order as they rise.—
"Thaddeus" is known to all the politicians
of the country as the most remarkable
parliamentarian of his age living. With
the construction of the rules of order he is
perfectly familiar, and every precedent he
has at his fingers’ ends.
-The swamp lands in the suburbs of New
Orleans are now being drained, and the cit
izens anticipate thereupon a speedy extension
of the city.
