In a letter of June loth to the lmirman nf the democratic; state committee of New York, Mr. Tilden declines under any circumstances to be again a candidate for the presi dency. He declares the same con siderations which prompted his re fusal in 1880 determine his action now, and for reasons of physical inability' he cannot accept the nom ination. He reiterates his opinion that the chief magistracy is above all personal ambition because it earriea with it weight' duties to be conscientiously' performed, and be cause he cannot hope to discharge these in his present condition, he must not and cannot accept the re sponsibility of a re-election. These wor ds of Mr. Tilden will be remembered for future good be cause they embody a clear apprecia tion of a principle too often lost sight of in those stirring days. Says the letter: Undervaluing in no wise that best gift of heaven, the occasion and the power sometimes bestowed upon a mere individual to communicate an impulse for good, grateful beyond all words to my fellow-countrymen who would assign such beneficent functions to me, I am consoled by the reflection that neither the demo cratic party, nor the republic for whose future that party is the best guarantee, is now or ever can be de pendent upon any one man for their successful progress in the path of a noble destiny. Having given to their welfare whatever of health and strength 1 possessed or could bor row from the future, and having reached the term of my capacity for such laborers as their welfare now demands, I but submit to the will of God in deeming my public career forever closed.

With hi hold on New York, with his vigorous young manhood, his clean record and superb individuali ty a new leader assumes the robe cast aside by Mr. Tilden, and the South and North will march hand in hand to peaceful victories under Cleveland and Caui.islk. DUEW AND HLOXHAM. In a lengthy interview published in the Times-Union of the 11th, Gov. Drew takes emphatically the position which had boon ascribed to him with reference to Gov. Blox ham. Various telegrams from Jack sonville received during the session of the Putnam county convention seemed to have denied this, but the lengthy interview in question sets the matter at rest, we hope, forever. A long explanation is given, but the following extract contains all that is interesting to our readers or tinent to the question : per- "No doubt they do," s:ud the ex Governor; "in the way it has prob ably been represented to them," he added, smiling, "no doubt they feel just as you say. Gentlemen i Mr. Bloxham's interest came here to me and, no doubt, forming a shrewd guess from my persona! relations to Mr. Bloxham, asked me the question direct; I answered it directly and they have been industriously ushv my answer against me, I have no doubt. Since thev have gone into the matter and are using it to my detriment I have no further hesita. tion in saying publicly that, for per sonal reasons, I could not consent to support Mr. liloxham if he were nominated, which I feel entirely confident he will not be." Now Gov. Bloxham's name will not be presented to the Pcnsacola convention, but it is very certain that Geo. F. Drew expects his own name to be prominent in the list of governors in prospectu. Can he, as a democrat, gc consistent!' be fore that convention when he has expressly stated that in certain cir cumstances he will not feel bound by the action of that body? Is there any good democrat who will not feel himself bound, within .reas onable limits, b the nomination at Pcnsacola, and is Gov. Drew, how ever rich or respectable or valuable, in a position to dictate the choice of a candidate to the democrats of Florida ? These questions are for the careful consideration of the state convention. And now comes 151ox- ham's letter : Executive Office, ) Tallahassee, Fla., June 11. f To the Editor of the Times-Union: The nceoimt. in t.o-dav's issue of your paper of an interview with ex Governor Drew, contains many falsehoods ns to mvself. 1 shall at an early day, with your permission make a full statement of the facts through the columns of the Times- Union. W. I). Uloxiiam. With all this we have nothing to do. We are sorry the chief-execu tive of Florida should feel callec upon to exchange billingsgate with one of our citizens, and the high po sition in public esteem held by each will but expose them to keener con demnation in "the light which beats upon a throne." Hut the people can take no politi cal interest in such matters. Blox ham lias never avowed himself a candidate, and it seems that Drew lias been one only to defeat Blox liam. Neither is longer in the race; each is broken bv his own action, and the state convention is thereby relieved of its most threatening en tanglement. For this let us all be thankful. Polygamy Increasing. Times-Democrat. There is said to he quite a boom in po lygamy noticeable in Utah. A great many Congressmen have opposed any in terference, with the Mormons, on the ground that if left alone polygamy will die out itself in time, but instead of this being the ease, it is decidedly and rapidly on the increase among the Mormons. The bishops and the elders of the church are preaching it and working earnestly to persuade the saints to take- more wives. It was laid down as one of the main principles of the religion at the late conference in Salt Lake City to be as much married as possible. In fine, a new revival of polygamy is under way in the Church of Latter Day Saints, and plural marriages are more numerous than ever. The explanation of this is easy. The mass of the Mormons are monogamous, having only one wife apiece, because they cannot alYord to support more. It is the elders who keep houses full of wives, the rich old bishops that have accumulated large fortunes out of the church tithes, and who can afford this luxury. It is because they have- a superabund ance of wives, because they have violated the law, that they are trying, after the manner of the fox without a tail, to per suade their monogamous brethren to fol low in their footsteps. They contem plate Congressional interference and ier secution: they see that there are troul lous times ahead for polygamists, and fearing that they may be sacrificed, they are providing for their own safety by in eruasing the number of law-breakers. Congress might feel inclined, they think, to put down the polygamists if there were only a thousand of them, but if there are 20,000 Brigham Youngs in Utah the task would le all the more dif ficult, and Congress would le less dis losed to legislate against polygamy. And thus the law is I icing openly vio lated. Congress defied and morality in sulted. The boldness of the Mormon Church, in the face of the unanimous public sentiment of the country, is really extraordinary. It proves that the time is at hand when some lesson must ).? taught the saints. Their game to in crease and spread olygamy should le met by even more stringent and ener getic legislation against them. It will le a great mistake to allow the Mormons to strengthen and fortify themselves, as they are proposing to do, by making every Mormon a breaker of the laws, and, therefore, compelled, for their own protection, to oppose them. They should be met now, and moralit' and civiliza tion vindicated. IVof. F. A.
