The coroners jury last Wednesday rendered the following verdict with reference to the causes of the explo sion: In the light of the very full and minute evidence submitted to the jurors, including the testimony of eye-witnesses to the disaster, testimony also as to the structuie, history and management of all the mills destroyed, and. CYidenpe mweovei, furnished by the appearance of the ruin after the fire visited by the jurors in person, aided top, by the opinion of very competent experts who were first put into possession ot all discoverable tacts bearing on the case, the jurors unanimously believe that the fire had its origin in some one of the twenty run of stones situated on the easterly side of the Washburn mill A, by sparks of fire generated between stones, running empty or by the passage of some foreign substance like iron That after smouldering for several minutes about the stones, the fire burst in to ablaze which ignited the flour dust in the con veyors and dust loom, causing both to explode, this explosion jarring the dust of the whole mill in to the air, which ignited and then followed the first gieat explosion in the Washburn A mill, that the flames from the explosion, aided by the wind, were in a flash earned into the upper windows and dust spouts of the Diamond mill, which stood cornering only 25 feet distant, and then set tire to the flour dust which already filled the air from the shock of the Washburn explosion. Then followed the ex plosion of the Diamond mill, immediately after, trom the same cause and from the same method The explosion of the Diamond set fire and exploded the Humboldt mill, which stood bioadside 25 feet distant The three mills upon the river-side of the canal, though set on fire and burned by the flames from the explosion on Recount of the fifty feet of open space between them and the Washburn mill, ftide.4 by a strong wind, and no doubt further pro tected by the unusual absence of the dust, the two larger miljs not ba-y ing run for several days, and feeing especially clean That at the time ot the fire and explosion at the Washburn mill there }s no evidence showing that the mill W^B befng run in an unusual manner in any respectnp greater speed than usualno, gppater proportion of middlings bein& ground than usua}, and no more dust in the.mill thannsual, and the sjinie men in charge and at their respective posts as usual, so that it is not possible to fltf upon iny one blame for special neglect or carelessness an $ hat ocpasion Whether ucb a degree of atch fulness and care is possible orshoujdbe required, on the part of millers, so that the running stores should never emit sparks offire,these jurors do ppt attempt t decide It is plain, however, that the open puripers which were in general use in the/ Diamond and Humboldt mills, caused a needless amount pf flour dust to settle throughout $hmOIs, stored rpady for an explosion, whtf|he necessary shock should gend it floating in the air.

The militia are supplied with arms, ammunition and are ready at an hour's notice to concentrate forces to repel an inva sion on the Canada border. The soldiers sav no doubt exists in their minds an invasion is imminent, and that the Irish nationalists are now in large numbers, with the greatest se crecy possible, making their way in to the interior of Canada, with or ders to concentrate at different points for an attack on Montreal, Quebec, Ottawa, and other prominent Cana dian towns. It is currently reported that arms and ammunition have for weeks past been brought into the pro vinces,where they are now concealed.

REOPENING OF THE ELECTORAL QUES- TION DEPRECATED BY GOVERNOR HAMPTON. Culumbia, (S. Special, 19th i A correspondent waited on Gov. Hampton this morning, and called his attention to the news of the adop tion of the Potter resolution in con gress on yesterday. After some gen eral conversation the correspondent asked him what he thought of the wisdom of any attempt to unseat Hayes. Gov. Hampton in reply said: I think that any attempt to unseat Hayes would be most unwise, unless it had been previously wade perfectly clear that he was a party to the system of fraud which made him president, I do not behve he is or has been implicated in such fraud." Gov. Hampton spoke with much feehng, and expressed his surprise at the result of the five days' contest in the house iust ended. He ftirther said that the reopening of the presi* dential question at this juncture is fraught with danger to the whole country.? ,He said: "It will, in my judgement react disastrously, upon the Democratic* party, and it will in jure especially the South, which needs peace, and I should regard it as a grave mistake on the part of our people &o take any part in this matter"." In reply to the question whether an attempt to unseat Hayes would be looked upon favorably in South Carolina and the South, Gov.

In New York, Chicago, St. Louis and probably other places these organizations of working men since the occurrences of last Summer, have developed a strong disposition to resist any repetition ot the arbi trary and illegal measures by which they were deprived for a time of rights solemnly guaranteed to all the people of this countrynot only by the national constitution but also by the constitutions of several States. In St. Louis it will be remembered peaceable meetings of workingmen were forbidden by the city authori ties and were actually broken up by the police. In St. Louis accoiding ly there was last Sunday a most for midable demonstration of the socie tie journals of the classes referred to namesluidiscrnninately as communist organizations. These St. Louis so cieties marching, four and eight a breast, formed a solid column nearly a mile longthis, notwithstanding the weather was most unfavorable for a street parade, while many members of the societies dared not publicly appear in their ranks. It was noticeable and significant of the temper of this unarmed army which marched through the streets ol St. Louis Sunday that the red cockades and red flags of the com munists were very numerous, while the banners many of them, bore ex pressions of socialist ideas. It was also noticeable that the whole police force of the city was kept on duty all day and that a battalion of militia was held ready to sally forth from its armories. It is evident that the ci vil authorities and the property hold ing classes of St. Louis are as afraid of these workingmen as certain journals are trying to make the authorities and property owners of other cities. It is also evident that the St. Louis workingmen, remembering how they were treated last summer, are resent ful and threatening. But civil war is not in consequence about to break out in St. Louis. There are many causes which make workingmen dissatisfied, and the times have been most favorable for the spreading amongst them of erroneous ideas regarding the social economy and poDular polieies. But we can safely trust that all their dis satisfaction will be harmlessly work ed off in free speech and the balloj box, while the errors they have been taught will be dissipated by the re. flection and discussion. If as we all hope, the worst of the hard times hag gone by, steady employment and fair remuneration will soon result in the great body of the workingmen in this country again becoming, as tfyey generally have been, really more con servative than their employers.
