It is amusing to bear the different or count* of tlie causes which led to the defeat or election of many M. c.s\ One attributes bis defeat to tlie failure of tlie administration to "turn the rascals out In bis district, while the "next door" member from the adjoining dis trict, who bad all the "rascals" turned out, insists that he was dsfsetsd be cause the disappointed office seekers failed to enthuse with that enthusiasm which crowns the candidate with gtnqr and five thousand a year. Home charge their being left at home, to meditate, to tariff; others say they "slipped up’ on oleomargarine; but few can look you In tlie eyes, without winking, and say "the sovereign people failed to see tlie especial fitness for law-making which belong to yours truly." From all that can be learned by your correspondent. tlie issues were purely local, and the administration cut no fig ure In the result one wsv or Uie oilier. It seems to tie generally conceded that Hie President Is stronger than Ills party, and If the convention were called to morrow be would be nominated—proba blv by acclamation—and unless a change occurs In the present situation, we shall see lllalne and Cleveland arrayed against each other us opponents In the Presidential race of *hh. A very sagacious and prominent poli tician. of national fame, said to me a few tlavs ago, that before the time ar rived for the convention of the Demo cratic party, be was satisfied that Pres ident Cleveland would state in no uncer tain language, that be would not be a candidate for a second term. "Should this prove true," said lie. "there will be not a few Richmonds in the field. Tlie old-time leader* have pass**! away, and young Democracy. aggressive anil reso lute. will Insist on new blood, new en ergy and new hraius being put in the light.

It appears, after all. that Recorder of Deed* Mat thews in Uie only one In Uie District that has not brought discredit upon the President In some shape. All just men acknowledge their belief hi the President's willingness to do his whole duty as he understands it. Re publicans and Democrats nay lie is an honest man.and the accusation by some of Uie disaffected that ho lent himself to "jobbery” in land speculation is en tirely without foundation. Exit.
