TutJBiay. August 23, 187L Kidnapping1 Characteristic of Grant' Administration. The New York Sun Bays that the publi cation by the Washington correspondent of the Cincinnati Gazette of the facts eon nected with the conspiracy to kidnap Ray mond II. Perry of Rhode Island, revives the memory of the darkest page in the history of Grant's administration. Mr. Perry had revealed certain transac tions relating to the San Domingo enter prise which were regarded by those con cerned in that undertaking as exceedingly damaging; and they determined to put him out of the way; For this purpose, as appears by the evidence given to the world lone since by tho A'un and now renewed and extended by the Gazette, Gen. Bab cock, Grant's most confidential secretary and his special agent in San Domingo, conspired with various persons in the de tective servico of the treasury department to have a bogus charge of murder raised against Perry in an obscure part of Texas, and then to kidnap him in Rhode Island and carry him oil to Texas, either to kill him there or to incarcerate him in some prison from which he could not possibly be released for an indefinite period ot time, These aro the isimple facts as established by the testimony; and while it is possible that such a conspiracy could have been gotten up by men so near to Grant, and in the interest of a project out of which he and his friends expected to make a great deal of money, without his knowing and assenting to it, yet who can believe that such was the case? Besides, if he did not know it and agree in it, would he not have resented it and punished it when the truth of the matter was brought tu his knowledge by its publication in tho Sun some years ago? After an attempt to kidnap, which cer tainly was devised and carried on with the full knowledge of President Grant, was that made by Henry D. Gooke and Alex ander R. Shepherd, when they under took to carry off Mr, Dana from this city to Washington that Judge Blatchford turned it out of court as soon as the case was heard by him. On that occasion, too. there is little reason to doubt that behind the kidnapping scheme there was a deadly, murderous intent. Akin to both these operations was the sate-burglary conspiracy, in which Babcock was likewise a conspicuous actor, all his confederates beine in the same manner intimate friends of President Grant. A more wicked crime was never undertaken than that which failed with the failure of this conspiracy; but the guilt of the vil lains who concocted it, and the deep suspi cion which his close connection with them caffs upon the name of Grant, cannot be eradicated from the memory of men. Similar to these was the conspiracy of Grant's Scretary of the Navy to entice Mr. Whitthorne of the House of Repre sentatives, Chairman of an investigating committee into a house of ill fame in Washington in order that he might there have him arrested, and thus gain over him a power to control the investigation and hinder the presentation in the House or the publication of any damaging report. Conspiracies to kidoap, conspiracies to blacken innocent persons with unfounded accusations of crime, form one of the most remarkable characteristics of Grant s Ad iniuistratioo. They seem almost incredible, eveu at this brief distance, and yet they actually occurred as we have stated. And yet Gen. Grant and some of his friends still think he may be nominated for a third term lor President of the United states! CIVII. SERVICE RErORK. How Stanley Matthews Traded the Toledo Post Office for Votes From Itio Toledo Journal. A fw days since a very prominent citi Ben of Cincinnati visited Toledo, who was en route to Put in-Bay. This gentleman said that ho supposed he was one of the parties who was instrumental in bringing llecd and Matthews together. He was at Columbus during the senatorial contest, in the interest of Matthews. He talked ith Heed, and ascertained that he was for Tuft, and that he had, or claimed to con trol. from three to live votes of the north western Ohio delegation. He saw that Reed was anxious for something, and he inferred from certain words and hints that he dropped, that he could be "fixed" for Matthews. "I then saw Matthews," ho said, "and advised him to secure Heed, as the contest was likely to be close. An in tervinw was arranged and Reed was fixed." v hat transpired between need and Matthews no one knows but tho two parties present. Perhaps it was another party, a confidential friend of Matthews, who fixed Heed and his three or lour votes, It is certain that Reed went to Columbus in the interest ot latt ; that certain representa tives from northwestern Ohio, who were in Reed's interest, were also for Taft; that Reed was in the Taft caucus, preceding the legislative caucus. It is also certain that he changed; and that he changed very suddenly to Matthews alter a certain interview, either with Matthews or a friend of Matthews, upon the promise of afedera! office. It is also true, and we stand ready to prove it, that after said senatorial elec tion, in winch ueed s strength was voted for Matthews, an arrangement was made by Matthews with President Hayes, to have fowling removed and Alexander Reed appointed postmaster, and that at the tame time Matthews wrote to Gov. Cox, informing him of the contemplated change. It has been a mystery to many citizens of Toledo why President Hayes was induced to make the change, in direct and flagrant violation of his civil service rules. There is but one explanation tor this, and that is, Stanley Matthews de manded the change. It is a well-known tact that no charges whatever have been preferred against Capt. Howling; it is also an undisputed fact that the president said to Capt Howling after his inauguration, that he would not be removed while his record was so correct. He said the same thing, substantially, to William Baker, of loledo, and to another very distinguished public official in Washinaton. Now, with all these facts well established and uncontroverted. are we not iustified in the assertion that thtf whole transaction is tainted with fraud and corruption of the most degrading kind r An English Substitute for Spelling Bees. Londou Examiner. One of our most respectable suburbs has the credit of having invented an amusement wnicn ohouia make the busy "spelling-bee" and the homely "at home" hide their aiminuned beads. A number of worthy citizens in Lower Holloway. alarmed at the progress of democratic and atheistical opinions, have formed themselves into a society tor giving (and receiving) political and theological readings. The members meet every Wednesday and Saturday evening, and read Butler's "Analogy" and llobbd' "De Cive," "without note or com ment. Their wives knit and listen, and hand sandwiches and a "modest Quencher." the modern l'iokwickians all go quietly to bed in the grim' belief that the empire is safe till next reading night There might be worse pills against the earthquake than mis uouoway one, . Good Crops. Tile Chicago 2ime$ says that tho evi dence that the large American crop will be in active demand over the water, and that, consequently, prices must be good, accu mulates as rapidly as the greatest bull in the grain market could desire. All the English journals point out that the crop in England is bad, that it is worse on the continent, and that Russia is not sending near as much grain to the English market as was her wont America will have sub stantially a clcarfield. Mr. Jennings, the London correspondent of 27te New York World, writes: "We now know auite enoueh to be sure that the English harvest will be far below the average, and the ordinary supplies from Russia will be much interfered with, it not wholly diverted from these shores. It is to America that England must look for the supplies requisite to make up her own deficiency in food. It is evident, too, mac tne war will not be over so soon as some people supposed. Russia is at the time 1 write in a position of great peril, and I have heard some military men express an opinion that another defeat such las that at Plevna would cause the whole cam paign to collapse, and compel the Czar to make peace on any terms. Nothing short ot such a contingency as that actually h ap pending would induce me to believe in its possibility. It is far more probable that Russia will go on 'pegging away,' no mat ter at what cost or sacrifice. The longer the war lasts the more certainly must the United States become the greatemporium of the world, Of course such an advan tage is merely temporary, and it would not do to depend too much upon it. Still a temporary advantage is not to be despised in hard times." Good crops, good prices, good times. This has been the invariable rule. The effect for this crop year may not be felt until next sprint-, but it is coming, Deadwood In Brief. Correspondence New York Times. There is no such place anywhere. It shows up in its worst forms the "fast and flash" American trait. A little over a year ago the site of this swarming camp was a part of the howling wilderness. To-day there are along the streets, and up and down the gulches, within a mile, over 10,000 people. Here is a city of 4,000 inhabi tants, with a floating population ot 2,000 more. About 1,500 houses and huts, and hundreds of tents up the hillsides, an academy, church, two daily newspapers, four banks, twenty lawyers, physicians, dentists, artists, club-houses, theatres in full blast every night, the streets thronged with speculators, tramps, and bummers; gambling hells open l11 day long, and cappers on every corner watching for the next "victim" such is a hasty glance at Deadwood. It is a place in which the few pray upon the many. You cannot buy anything tor less than a quarter; your living costs you double what it would at Denver or bait Lake City. lou can t step iu any direction without facing some device for, getting rid ot your money. They have even got a "corner" ou postage stamps, and you must pay from a dime to a quarter for a three-cent stamp. Senator Biainc is responsible for the fol lowing good story; The mortality during the last session of the Forty third congress was unusually great. Messrs. Hooper and Crocker of Massachusetts, Hersey of Maine, Rice of Chicago, and several other members died during the session, and a Saturday afternoon was set apart for the customary eulogies. On the day before, General Butler went up to the speakers to inquire what the order of exercises was to be. Mr. Blaine replied that the ar rangements on such occasions were gener ally made by tho colleagues of the member whose elogies were to be pronounced, and that General Butler could probably learn what the ordor of exercises would be by asking almost any one of his fellow mem bers from Massohusets. "Well," said General Butler, "I'm not in the eulogistic ring, but I'll be d d if 1 don't make a speech on old Hooper if they don't shut me off with the previous question." New lork IrilAine. 1 he country is crowded with statesmen whose eyes are so fixed upon 1880 that they are unable to perceive what is going on un der their noses. If you startle one of them with a political question, he is apt to reply with a disquisition on rapid transit, or the moons of Mars. They are like the humble menial who was always dwelling upon the problems of existence when she ought to have been mopping the floor. When her mistress wa aboutto upbraid her for slow ness, she stopped all remonstrances by ask ing, as she gave the mop a vigorous twist, IlliM . v hen tne heavens and the earth pass "away, mum, where shall we bo?" in the air?" When the political fogs lift in 1880, where will all the dreamers and dodgers be left? in the air? Workingmen with grievances will do well to examine the example set by miners em ployed by the Illinois Coal and Iron Com pany at LaSalle. The company is in the hands of a receiver appointed by the Unit ed States circuit court, and the men, hav ing satisfied themselves that they had been wronged by the receiver, came into court. and, after setting forth their plea, rely up on the laws for such relief as they may be entitled to. That this is the most sensible action yet taken by disappointment work ingmen, there can be no quibble, and this patient submission to the laws will operate far more toward securing them sympathy than all the strikes they could originate. Even Grant, who was' never squeamish in such matters, did not venture to rein state Benjamin P. Ruckle after he bad been cashiered, punished as a thief, andsehtenc ed to imprisonment for robbing the widows and orphans of negro soldiers. It was re served for Hayes to restore Runkle to the service which he had disgraced, and to es tablish a precedent which opens the door for every thief dismissed from the army. Tho object of Hayes speech-making tour through northern New England, it is said by his friends, is to convince tho people of that region that he is not the deep and dangerous conspirator against tho liberties of tho country they have taken him to be but simply a harmless idiot, and with the aid of poor Key his trip has been a great success. , The national board of trade declares in favor of resumption and calls for additional legislation to faciliate the execution of the act .of 1373. ' It recommends the enact ment of a law authorizing the funding o greenbacks in 4 per cent bond3 running 40 years, the funding to be at the rate $10,000,000 a month, or 120,000,000 year, till greenbacks will be at par with coin.

The difficulty that was long ex oenenced in obtaining a preparation of this valuable drug that could always be relied upon for uniformity in strength and absolute purity led to the introduction of Helmbold's Extract of Buchu, which for tho last quarter of a century has been ex tensively used both by physicians and in house and family practice, and with very gratifying success.
