Secretary McCrary says that to his mind the election indicates that re publicans are again to get the ascend ancy. "If," said he, "in the very agonies of resumption, as it were, Ohio can be carried against its post ponement, it foreshadows that that party which advocates honest money is to be popular with the great mass of the people." The Centerville Citizen says: "In the issue of the Greenback, after the election, the managers of the g-b par ty in this county send greeting to the democratic party of Appanoose coun ty In the following language: The democratic party is nothing more than a floating! body of inters, with the nuts.* e* already in sympathy with m.

According to the testimony given ill the Fitz-John Porter case by Rob ert Lincoln, in New York, yesterday the expressed opinion of President Lincoln, at the time qf tho General's court-martial, was that the ofllcer de served death. Porter's latest testimo ny in his own behalf is also regarded aa unfavorable to his prospects of es cape from a bad record through he present re-hearing of his case. Judge Winslow is beaten in the Sixth Judicial district by J. C. Cook, democrat Stone, democrat, for Dis trict Attorney, also beats Ryan, re publican in the same district. Down here in the Second district we also got whipped. Republican Nationals can see very plainly the effects of their bargain with the democrats. They are good on a trade, certainly for young reformers, and they have for a partner the pure old democratic party. AN article in the Chicago Times of tike 16th inst. discusses the question as to the proper time for the election of congressmen in Iowa. It is sadly out of joint. I assumes premises that do not exist and argues therefrom that the recent election of congressmen in this State is void. The writer does not understand the Iowa laws at all. So great a newspaper as the Times is ought to be educated sufficiently to not make errors that school boys in Iowa would not make. The great political content. Will oe enr on the oth of November.

SPKAKIXG of the encouraging signs of a revival of business, a New York paper notes another good omen in the bank circulation and roserve.-i which remain remarkably steady. The New York banks lost last week only $384,700 in reserve, of which only $352,800 was in legal-tenders, and have lost since the month began only $2,100,000 in legal-tenders, while gain ing $1,400,000 in specie, and increas ing their average of loans by $2,o0o, 000. The outstanding circulation of all the National Banks was &!22,tiK>, 242 on the last day of August, and only $.'$21,878,98!) on the 21st of Sep tember. The volume of business transacted is larger than it was last year, and the earnings of railroads and other corporations give tokpn of a general improvement. V? As lias already been announced, Professor Collier has, within a short time, at the Department of Agricul ture in Washington, conducted a sc ries of important and interesting ex periments in the production of sugar from corn -stalks and sorghum. From 25,000 pounds of these stalks lie ob tained 382 pounds of corn syrup and C59J pounds of sorghum syrup, equal ing 781 pounds of very good crystali 'A*~rtOsf*S -..vnttSn-h nnitiha, flwlitreM all nnsloMi L*ttei* to «, ortrinw* «OVRIB«. 7.- able sugar. With more perfect ma chinery he thinks that he should have collected 1,1 SO pounds of sugar. The correct percentage of sugar, he thinks, ought to be about 75 per cent. The experiment with millet stalks was promising. From 130 pounds of a new French millet-stalk and leaves, he obtained 29 pounds of juice. The experiments 61 making sugar from sorghum in Minnesota, by private firms and individuals, have been tol erably successful. WE had a democratic sheriff for the firat nine months of this year, and next for a day or two we had a repub lican sheriff, made out of a republican coroner, and then we had another democratic sheriff by order of Judge Knapp, and finally a democratic Board of Supervisors made another democratic sheriff, and now the Lord only knows who is sheriff. We want to jog the memory of all good people that this if reform by the great Nation al-democratic party. We expect that Judge Sloan, when he opens his court here next Monday, in order to be sure that he has a sheriff, will appoint a republican sheriff. We have just completed the printing of the Circuit Conrt Docket, for the use of the at torneys, and the Clerk of the Court ordered us to leave off the name of sheriff, because he could not under take to determine who was sheriff. THE Charleston (S. (5.) A'etcs, refer ring to the recent order of Attorney General Devens to Southern District Attorneys, .says: "The democracy are strong enough to protect their own party and their opponents too, and they mean to do it. They will not tolerate any interference with the freedom of election, even if this lie attempted in the interest of timorous colored democrats. A whole army cannot keep the democracy from car rying South Carolina, if they cliooso to carry It, and Attorney-General Devens has no army to call out for the benefit of his particular friends, whether democratic or republican." The Netcs Is very plain. It knows what is meant by the attack on the army on the part of the democratic party and what is meant by curtail ing the power of the President in the use of the army. The democratic party of this nation is determined to aid the Southern wing of that party in stamping out the freedom of elections. The demo cratic party is committed to the theo ry that the republican element of the Snyth whall not h« pofmlttw) to vote it will vote the democratic ticket. The democratic party are de terinined-that the colored vote of the South shall not be free to vote ns it chooses, and that if it attempts it, in timidation and murder are justifiable t:j defeat such an attempt. The dem ocratic party is thus actuated from Ihe same spirit, the same disloyal heart that led it to sympathize with the South In the rebellion. Hence the Xews defies the Federal Government to protect American cit izens in their rights in the State of South Carolina. This is another ex ercise of despotism by the democratic oligarchy of the South, and it is on the direct road leading to another rev olution it is a conflict between griev ous wrong and simple justice, Which, if persisted in, must as surely lead to revolution as the turbulent storm lends to a troubled sea. RET Ci.ARKsojf, our readers will remember, wrote and published in the Register an open letter to I). P. Stulibs, of Fairfield, Iowa. Clark son's complaint was that Btubbs had libeled him by charging that he was guilty of forging what was known as the Farnsworth dispatch. Ret further stated that Stubbs had circu lated such a charge and actually pro cured the newsboys on the train to fold a circular containing this charge in the State Register. Stubbs replied, through the Register, denying that he had ever made such a charge, or that he had ever circulated it or had them folded in the Register. Then comes forward CJol. John W. Hammond, who, with particularity, relates how he saw Httibhs actively engaged in circulating the circulars making the charge of forgery against Ret, and tluit he saw Stubbs get the newsboy to fold the circular in the Register. Next comes the newsboy and says Stubbs did get him to fold the circu lars in the State Register, and that he did so fold them not knowing the character of the circular. Will the reader just think for a mo ment of the low-down, sheep-stealing character—so far as moral turpitude is concerned —of this act of Stubbs folding into Clarkson's own paper a charge of forgery against him, and then having the paper, thus loaded, circulated among the people. Then when the foul brain that conceived it was brought to bay, it denied its le gitimate brat. This man is D. P. Stubbs, one year ago the candidate for Governor of the party of purity and reform. He is the same who has been so often hailed with delight in this community in the late campaign, to instruct the great party of reform here in Ottumwa. lie is indeed a candidate for Presi dent prts-.-ti/j/i/ subject to the decision of the National Convention of the Immaculate in 1880. It's no joke, mind you -Stubbs has a vision of get ting there, every time he lays his mighty brain down upon his pillow. Any man who would exp.H-tthe truth from 1). P. Stublts is a fool, or he don't know the man. If 1). 1*. Stubbs has au honest aspiration we have failed to discern it. Ax elderly gentleman of culture and much experience, JIS well as lieing well versed in governmental affairs, in a letter to his son in this city, says: "Fiat money is the most idiotic, most dishonest, most destructive agency that the evil genius of mail could invent. Its evils cannot le es timated only by those who have once tasted them. We once hail flat mon ey-it was in Is.'Jli. The deposits, (Public) had been removed from the oldl'.N. bank and placed in what was called 'Deposit banks,' selected in the different States in such a way as to equalize the distribution of the public funds. When the Deposits were removed there were less than :500 banks in the country—in three years there were i:V»o. Alter the De posits were removed anil placet! in the banks selected by the administra tion, the then Secretary Of the Treas ury, I Levi Woodburj issued an or der to the Deposit banks to discount and issue liberally. This they did. The bank of Cleveland, Ohio,* a De posite Uink, issued #i'l of pajx'r to $1 of specie others did the same liberal work so that in ls.'iiiand in the fore |«irt of s:!7, money was as plenty n.« the leaves on Ihe trees. Hut iti '.'!7 the crash came, hegimting in the East and moving West—property went down, down |otatocs sold at 1 cents a bushel and Hour at $l..jo per barrel. The tirst barrel of Hour 1 bought in Dayton, Ohio, was only #1.oil,-this was in March, lsto. I have no time to write the whole story- it isono of pain and one of shame to the country how much greater the shame of the idiots of the present day?" The above is a lesson learned from experience and comes from an honest man who would, if he can, do good to his fellow-men, by relating his ex perience. He wrote with no thought of its appearing in print, but as ad vice to his son, feeling, no doubt, that it was a father's duty to a son in his early business life. At our request we obtained the above extract from that admirably letter to lay before our readers. Pro.peot. for Pork. The Chicago Drover's Journal is anything but cheerful for the imtne future of pork. It says: "It is now generally admitted that the packing season in Chicago will open late, perhaps not until the 1,1th of November, or even later, if the weather should not prove favorable. The condition of the trade will not admit of any extra expanse on the product. J'ie, so necessary to the curing of meats, is scarce and high and then the stocks of old product are sufficient to meet the present wants of trade. This seems to be the view taken by about all the large firms in the business. Of course, those that were fortunate in securing a large stock of ice at cheap rates may go on wit the business. The extreme warm weather of the past three months lias nearly exliausted the ice supply of the country, and all summer curers complain of the scarcity. Just now then? is considerable demand for ribs and the great bulk of shipments are for European account* The home de mand is light the condition of affairs at the South has entirely shut out the largest consuming and distributing markets of our own country. But, against all this, our packers look for a good trade and fair prices the com ing season. They claim that the re vival of the industries of the New England and Middle States will cre ate a demand that will offset the loss of that in tho South and then our cheap and nutritious hog products are breaking down the prejudices of the French, a people who until recently would scarcely buy American pork products at any price but the direct shipments to French ports are in creasing from year to year. EVKX the New York Sun is forced to admit that republican prospects are bright and brightening. It says: "People who indulge the Idea that the republican party was dead have discovered their mistake when they have looked at the results of Tues day's elections. The republican par ty still exists. It is still vigorous, compact and on the alert. The re publican party will go into the next campaign for theelection of President with more than a mere possibility, with a fair chance, if we may judge from present appearances, of success." The Manchester J'ress gives an ae- t'le fa»rful goring of Adolpli Hchelling by a bull. His collar bone was broken in two places, his head and breast were cut and bruised, and a long wound several inches long torn across the abdomen, and another in the hip.

Burlington Hawkeye. for the past two or threedajwtho case of Rev. II._W. Thomas, formerly pastor of the Division Street M. E. church in this city, has been under discussion in the Kock Uiver Confer ence, now in session at Mt. Carroll, Illinois. No formal charges have been preferred against him, and the steps taken thus far appear to have been In a spirit of friendly remon strance. The Doctor has met his brethren in a like spirit of Christian courtesy, and unless some one throws in a firebrand the matter is likely to lie adjusted in an amicable and satis factory manner. It is charged that while Dr. Thomas had not in his ser mons or to the conference made any distinctly heretical declaration on which he could le tried, he insisted on preaching and talking about his doubts. In the secret session he was asked what he did believe on various doctrines, but instead of replying on one side or the other, he said He didn't know, or that he entertained doubts as to the truthfulness of the doctrines. The conference sought to obtain a promise from Dr.^Thomas that he would confine his preaching to the things he did believe and keep silent regarding tho subjects on which he was uncertain, but his replies were not satisfactory. It was also com plained that the Doctor had practiced and tolerated various violations of the book of discipline. The almost uni versal sentiment of the conference was that l)r. Thomas undermined the faith of his hearers in the commonly preached matters of the church, and replaced these with noother doctrines. The matter was referred to a commit tee, and elicited majority and minori ty reports, the majority reporting that their interview with Dr. Thomas re sulted in pledges from him that he would avoid the discussion of the ob noxious points in his sermons hereaf ter. The minority did not consider the interview and pledges satisfacto ry. The following was then offered as a substitute, and adopted by a vote of 8-5 to 19: WHEREAS, The attention of this conference has been called to the teachings of our beloved brother, Rev. Hiram \V. Thomas and, WHEREAS, After long and patient consideration of the subject, Dr. Thomas being present and an unre strained participator, the conference adopted a paper setting forth its judgii.ent in thi words following: Resolved, That, after careful inqui ry, we are constrained to apprehend that much of the teaching and influ ence of our Brother lliram W. Thom as is at variance with Methodism and detrimental to the interests of evan gelical religion, and it is our judg ment that brother Thomas ought ei ther to give to this conference une quivocal assurance that such teachings and influence shall, so far as he can control them, bo no more repeated, or he accede to our request to retire from the Methodist pulpit and WHF.KKAS, Dr. Thomas, after due deliberation, lias submitted his re sponse in words as follows: DK. THOMAS' STATEMENT. To THK CONFERENCE: Learning since this session began thai with many of your members there is dis trust in reference to Ihe soundness of my religious teachings, and that this feeling lias gone abroad in the church, occasioning disquiet and unrest, and recognizing your right and duty to guard the church against the promul gation of error, and recognizing the fact also that it is only just to myself and the public that my position be fairly understood, I deem it proper to submit to you the following state ment: I. I have in the past, in all good faith, sought to IK1 in perfect accord w ith the spirit and teachings of Jesus Christ and suppposed that 1 was all the time in substantial accord with the essential doctrines of our church and I have never for a moment felt that I was not in the fullest sympathy with its genius and spiritual* work in trying to spread scripture holiness over the land. II. Wishing to Ik entirely candid, and that you may know the exact state of my mind in what I mean by being in substantial accord with the doctrines of the church, i will frank ly state the only points on which I conceive there may lie difference of opinion, or the possibility of misun derstanding: I. On subject of the re ligion, I hold to what is substantially known as the moral influence theory. In reference to the FINAL CONDITION OF THE WICKED I have never doubted, nor do I now doubt, the fact of tho future or after death punishment. What may be the condition of those or the nature of their suffering, I cannot conceive of that condition under the govern ment of a just God as being worse than non-existence. As to the dura tion and results of that punishment, whether it lie eternal or corrective, resulting in reformation or ending in annihilation, I have not reached any settled conviction. The suhjct has cost mo a most unutterable mental suffering, and I find myself as the years go by, growing into a larger hope for mankind. .1. On the subject of the INSPIRATION OF THE SCRIPTURES I should find a difficulty in accepting tho verbal theory, but 1 do fully 1k lievc that tho men who wrote the scriptures were inspired, and these scriptures contain in substance the word of God and I think those who have heard me speak frequently, or a careful reading of my printed dis courses, will b«ir me out in the truth fulness of these statements. And in holding the views above expressed, 1 have not felt that I was unfaithful to the spirit of my ordination or in any way disuualified for honoroblv stand ing in a Methodist pulpit. My con ception of Methodism has I teen that it is a large-hearted, loveful, singing and praying organization, rather than a rigid, dogmatic, churchly system, and hence I have felt that there was in it that tolerance or allowance of personal liberty in thought thatcould easily tolerate any views that might seem peculiar in myself, so long as 1 was in hearty sympathy wit hits great purpose and work. Owing to the widespread misapprehension in the fieve, iublic mind as to what 1 really do be and that 1 feel that it is'but just to myself and to the church to say that in the future I shall endeavor to so express myself as to guard, as far as may be, against the possibility of being misunderstood, and shall con tinue, as best I can, to do the work of a faithful Christian minister. Affectionately, H. W. THOMAS. WHEREAS, In conference with a sjtecial committee Dr. Thomas avows his acceptance of the articles of faith and doctrines of the Methodist Epis copal church, claiming only such lati tude of belief and expression as is en joyed by every Methodist preacher, and lie declares his puriiose to so care fully guard his teaching in the future as to make himself more clearly un derstood, averting the discussion of such questions as are liable to create dissensions in the church: Resolved, That this conference does not regard the response of Dr. Thom as adequate or at all satisfactory, be cause 1. It contain! in itself intimations of doctrines which are inconsistent with the common, well knowu, uni versally accoptcd, and historical teachings of the Methodist Episcopal church: and becausel 2. The continued teaching of them, in our judgment, could only tend to the extension and perpetuation of al ready wide-spread dissatisfaction and alarm in the church. Resolved, 2. That we protest against their utteranco by our ministers in the pulpits of our churches within the bounds of our confercnce as disloyal to our covenantod obligations and de structive of the church whose order and peace wo are pledged to con serve. Resolved,'I. That wc reaffirm the action which we have already taken in tho case as above rccited. Resolved, 4. That notwithstanding the character of tho paper submitted by Dr. Thomas, yet in view of the pledges made by him setting forth liis purpose as to his future toachings, and hoping that he will respect the judgment of his brethren now wade known to him and not desiring to cat short hi* ministry, which, however, unsatisfactory In the past, we believe VOLUME 30. OTTUMWA, IOWA, OCTOBER 23, 1878. may be useful in the future, wc deem it best, in tho interest of charity and peace, to take no further action in tho premises for the present. Here is a democratic organ with a spasm of sense. Hear the Council Bluffs Globe, touching a new election: "So far as this paper is concerned, it takes but little stock in another elec tion for congressmen. The general belief was with everybody that Oeto» her was the legal time far electing congressmen in Iowa, and now that the election was held we are averse to going over the field again. Should another election be held we are satis fled that Congress would admit the members elected in October, and re ject those elected in Noyember. It is therefore the «hight of folly, in our opinion, to go through the forms and subject ourselves to the expense of another election in November." Democratic Breeding.

Weaver stands anvwhere he stands pledged against absolute, ir redeemable paper money. At least, that is the latest from renewed pledg es made on election day. Now what will the fiat organs do* crow over his victory, or admit a democratic gain? Weaver stands somewhere but not long in a place. He will stand long enough to get goods he never pays for loth in votes and groceries, if a slip pery tongue will fetch down the game? Tho Future and Honest Green backers. From the Belle Plain Union* Many of the men who have been carried away with the greenback de lusion we recognize as honest men. We have no hard words for such. Most of the leaders are not honest. Such men as Butler, Kearney, Brick Pomeroy, Weaver and others of that sort are simply scheming demagogues who see in the greenback delusion the possibility of advancing their own political and personal fortunes. They would seize upon any other rallying cry which they thought to lie popular just as quickly. But now that the election is over, and the winter even ings are coming on, it is a good time for the rank and file of the party, who have no political ambitions to gratify, and do not mean to bo the tools of the political ambition of oth ers, to sit down and study the history of this paper money question, if men are ever to be guided !y the les sons of experience they ought surely to avail themselves of "such lessons in regard to one of the most important functions of government, that of pro viding a circulating medium for the daily exchanges trade between man and man—in short, money. Now there is perfectly uniform testimony of history in regard to the effect of is sues of irredeemable paper money upon the welfare and prosperity of "a people. Is it not full time for our greenback friends to find out what that testimony of history is, and to heed it in their political action hereaf ter? It is a matter of little consequence as to the acreage which is put in, in this or that grain, in this or that crop, it matters very little how much a far mer raises on his farm, the important question is how much he raises per acre. The farmer who raises loo bush els of wheat on four acres will become a well-to-do, independent farmer, if not a rich man, if he does not meet with extraordinary misfortune but the man who raises loo bushels of wheat on twelve acres is on tho direct road to poverty, and undoubtedly will become poor if ho lives long enough and raises wheat enough. says: "Judge Weaver is as The Newton Journal Cook says that Gen. much a democrat as he is, and that is fully pledged to act with the de mocracy-in Coii£rr'\,,s, except on finan cial question.-.. What a tremendous victory the greenbackers have won!" Judge Cook is the newly-elected greenback and democratic Judge iu that district, and so his testimony is good and sufficient. He was at'the bargain, a history of which is given in an article quoted elsewhere. No wonder Gen. Weaver burned his old coat at the glorification meeting in his own town last week because he had once worn it as a republican. --Regis ter. Hon. P. Henry Smytlie, of Bur lington, who has been talked of as the probable November candidate of the greenbackers and democrats of the First district, has been asked by Gov. Gear for his legal opinion oh this question of October and Novem ber elections. Yesterday the Gover nor received his opinion and it is that the election in Octoltcr is legal and binding and final. So the plotters in the First district are "hoist by their own petard." -Shite Register. A railroad in Tennessee which cost $»s,000,(M0, was sold the other day by a receiver apjtointed to administer its affairs, for just enough to cover his own fees and legal expenses. The stockholders held a meeting the next day and wrote said official a sarcastic letter, thanking him for not bringing them into debt. The receiver replied cheerfully, begging them not to men tion it, and saying that he was suffi ciently rewarded in the consciousness of having done his duty. The Democracy Fooled. The prime consideration with Ed. Campbell, M. M. Ham, John P. Irish and CJo. in consenting to a union with the tireonbackerg was, the capturo of the G. ii.'s. who were to be taken in bodily, rag babrandall, and become a part of the triumphant Democracy of the future. The.Democratic lead era could gee the outcome of the ma no^uver with eagle vision, and were cracking their jokes ovor the scientif ic way in which the flat lunacy was to be squelched, while devoting euch spare moments as they had to parcel ling out among themselves the offices of Iowa for the nest decade. But alas, that "the best laid schemes o' mice and men" should so ofton "gang agley." Instead of being swallowed, it was the Greenbackers who did the swallowing—the Democracy, it was, who wero taken iu and done for. It was the Democracy who let down the bars in their platform, which sent every.loose-handed Democrat scam pering over into the Greenback ranks, and whom uo skill in management can ever recover. It was tho Democ racy who got nothing iu return for thoir votes but disgrace and demor alization, while the Greenbackers gob bled up two Congressmen in Iowa. Tho Democratic managers who drove this shrewd bargain still insist that all will yet be well. Wiitmer, in the Leader, Ham in his Rcrald, aud tho unblushing Ed. Campbell, inti mate that thoy are in the Greenback camp to stay, and propose to run the next election straddle, if they can't do better. This may be necessary to complete the contract by which Ed. was to be next joint candidate for Governor. But in the face of these calculations comes the order ftom greenback headquarters for the dem ocrats to "get up and dust," telling them very plainly they are not want ed on the greenback promises, and will not bo tolorated in future. The State organ of tho groenbackers, edit ed by the Greenback Stale Chairman, copies and endorses the demand of the Muscatine Trihuue for ilstrai/ht goods in the uture." The "rag baby," they say, "is old enough to go alone, and proposes to ilo so in future." So more democratic alliance no more honey-fugling with Ed.

How a Medical Student Blew Up a Man and His Wife. Prom lh« Cincinnati Commercial. In a West End drag store where the misaetnutic airs from "Mill creek guarantee a demand for quinine by the barrel and podophyliu hy the wholesale, not far from the delicious balm of a thousand odors from Si Keek's nose-tickling factory, an old man, prematurely so,was rolling pills. A cadaverous lad. he might havo been Iioinco's apothecary, stepped forward as we entered, lie looked chills and fever, and he smelt of snake-root and paregoric. "Is Mr. Arrison in Hack from behind a counter with a tall glass front peered an iron-gray head surmountiug high cheek bones and large snake-looking black eyes, "My name is Arrison." "Ah, glad to see you, Mr. Arrison. About twenty-five years ago you blew up—or got the credit of having blown up with an infernal machine Isaac Allison and his wife. The little affair has slipped most people's mem ory, and many now in the city have never heard of it. Suppose we talk over the affair." Tho man with iron-gray hair knocked over a mortar and pestle, a slight paleness came over his counte nance, but he nerved up and said "I suppose you are one of those newspaper cusses. Well, sir, you have the impudence of the devil. Have I not been persecuted and hunt ed down euouith for th*t affair, of which I am entirely innocent? No, sir, I won't be interviewed. I've nothing to say," and the worthy in fernal-machine fellow stopped into a dark room, and we saw him no more. Thinking he had gone for perhaps an other infernal 'machine, and not car ing to be made a frightful example of, we left Arrison to his solitude and his pills, and hasten to revive the dusty and forgotten memories of the most diabolical murder and fiendish outrage that Cincinnati ever witness ed. THE STORY. It was between 9 and 10 o'clock at night, June 25, 1854, nearly a quarter of a ceutury ago, that two boys wero playing on Phim street, near Fifth. "Don't you want a job said a tall black-haired man to them. One of them declined, but Johnny King on the reception of a dime, was persuaded to carry a box to Isaac Al lison, janitor of tiie Marino hospital, that was then located on Longworth street aud Central avenue. As he went on bis errand ghosts of dissected bodies haunted his boyish imagination, and grinning skeletons, puch as the doctors have, reached their bony fingers to clutch him, so he did not carry tho box to tlic hospital but left it with a drug clcrk on the corn or: Tte box was labelled. Theclerk shook it and thought it coutained brown paper, fie in turn handed it to Dr. linker, one of the oUlcers of the hospital and a professor in the Cin cinnati Medical college, who shook it and thought if contained sand. He gave it to Mrs. Allison, who was com ing down stairs, saying: "Hero, madam, somebody has sent you a present." She eagerly grasped the box and hastened up-siairs to her husband. Full of female, and in this ease fatal curiosity.she peered into the package over his shoulder, as he,seat ed on the bed, hastcucd to untie the strings and raise the lid. 'What is it, and who can have sent it V" she queried. A llasli a crash, a terrilic bang the room was full of smoke, the bed was onfiro Mrs. Allison wrapped in a sheet of flame every window pane in the room knocked out the plastering on the walls hurled to the door Alli son's abdomen torn open and his bowels torn out. fifteen slugs buried in his thigh one-half of the poor wo man's face blown off', her right arm torn from her body walls, floors and broken furniture blackened with powder, and a patient in the adjoin ing room having his jaw fixed, hurl ed tint on the carpet from the operat ing chair. The report was heard in Newport, and ONE POL'MI OF HUMAN FI.F.SI1 Was found, bleeding and blackened, imbedded in the laths of the ceiling. Help speedily came. The doctors, the idlers and the citizens of the neighborhood rushed to the scene of the disaster. ]People climbed tree and peered in at the hospital win dows, and the town was speedily alive wi'h the aliair. Allison lay on the dissecting-room table dying. His sufferings were fearful his groans and shrieks could be heard squares away. His wife, torn to pieces,lay in tho next room, in all the torments of pain. The doctor took Allison's hand and said "Who did it?" He answered, "William B. Connel ly, New York." The doctor repaated, "Allison there's no use disguising the fact, you can't live you are now dying have you an enemy in the world? Tell me truly who did this?" And the doctor pressed his hand tonderly and bont his head to catch the dying ac cusation of the unfortunate man.— His mind was clear, his reason nn dimmed he hesitated, looked earn estly at the doctor, and a second time repeated "I have a bitter enemy, it is William B. Connelly, of New York he did it Allison died in a few hours. His poor wife submitted to the knife of the enrgoon, and said she wanted to die if her husband did." But the doctors would not tell her whether be was dead or living, and in tho most excruciating of mor tal agony she lingered for twenty four honrs and then followed her husband down the dark valley. The greatest excitement, of course, prevailed. The mayor offered the munificent reward of $300 for the ap prehension of the perpetrator. Had he been discovered he would have expiated his crimo on the first lamp post. The police—and Jim lluftin was chief at the time—discredited Al lison's dying statements and accusa tions. Allison and his wife were a sorry »ut. Thoy had been arrested in St. Lonis for robbing a steamboat, a jimmy was found on his person, and he was sent to the Workhouse, while she was discharged. She was a bux om brunette, plump and well devel oped. Therefore tho police paid no attention to the statements of Allison, and hunted for some one that tho lus cious charms of the wife had soured on. Nor wero they long in their search. When the crowd were gath ered about the hospital door, on the night of the occurrence, a tall man, with dark hair and flashing black oyes, said "That machine has accom plished its mission." Then lie disap peared WHO WAS IIK? None knew. This was a clew. In the college attending lectures was a tall, dark-haired man, the son of a veteran of the war of 1812. He was a returned Californian—had uiado "ducats" in the gold regions, and coming back from the scenes and ex citcmeuts of '19, had studied medi cine, and fallen into the amoroua meshes of the fair Mrs. Allison. She wag plump, loving and beautiful, and worst of all, wedded to a man twico her own age. He was youthful,pock eta full of money, and it is no won der the casual acquaintance ripened into attachment, then floated on into forbidden love. Of course, the hus- u""''or protended to be. on the make so was she ?S1vbeXrl1ut "P tt j°b to rob tho stu dent? Was the plump wife the bait on the hook that was to catch gold Was Allison, the janitor, weaving the web about the student, and using the charms of his wife to lure him into the meshes? So a quarrel arose. Itumor said it was about a book, but alas the student's "Books were Ml woman'A looks." This tall, dark-haired student, Ar rison by name, was worsted In the quarrel, and be vowed vengeance. He threatened openly and above board, but he took his revenge secret ly and hy diabolical stealth. now HE WAS CAtrOIIT. Arrison ran to his father's farm, near Muscatine, Iowa, and from there wrote to a friend in this city. The letter was taken from tho office by another of the same name, and this tell-tale sentence occurred "Has the excitement subsided any Is it safe for me to come back Had I best go to California?" The letter was shown to Chief Ruffln. That worthy adjusted his gold eye glasses, rubbed his capacious paunch and said, "That's the man." Detec tives were at once dispatched to Iowa. The sheriff of the county promised aid, but the bird had flown. Ruffln came back without Arrison. Detec tives, however, laid in ambuscade for him. It was six months before he was caught. He made resistance,ran for a horse-pistol that lay behind a grocery-store countcr, but the officers of the law were too quick for him, and, handcuffed and in irons, he was brought to Cincinnati. His trial speedily followed. The boy whom he hired to carry the box identified him. The man who wrote the label that was on it identifn him. Hivc ly, the man who made the box, iden fied him as the man who ordered it. This three-fold identification, coup led with the threats and quarrels, in duced popular indignation to convict him, and the jury brought in a ver dict of murder in the first degree. The court sentenced him to the peni tentiary for ten years. Within the iron bars his conduct was as mild as a pet lamb's, his behavior as exem plary as a dying Christian. They taught him the cooper trade, and let him out in eight years. Why he was not hanged was then and is now a mystery. Some hinted that money was freely used. Tho crime was cer tainly murder of tho first water, de liberately planned and devilishly ex ecuted. No quick, passionate knock ing down, but a calm, cautiously, thoughtfully planned murder in cold blood, and if guilty Arrison should have swnng. THK MAL'LLIN'K that carried Allisou and his wife to their long home was a most simple contrivance, ingenious from its very simplicity of construction. A walnut box ten inches long and about four wide contained the botnb—egg-shap ed—which was tilled with slugs and powder. The bomb was an eighth of an inch thick, made of brass and some composition. Into tho orifice of the bomb a pistol-barrel wag in serted. The pistol wag cocked and the trigger tied by a string which was fastened to a nail in the lid When the nail or lid was removed,I he tension of the string on the trigger loosened, the cock came down on the cap, flashed into the powder of the box, simultaneously that the pistol was discharged into the bomb, caus ing the deadly explosion to follow. The Consequence of a Flirtation. The village of Elizaville, Columbia county, N. Y., was startled ou Sept. 20 by the sudden disappearance of Amelia Younghause, a beautiful girl of 1G, daughter of a wealthy farmer. She was engaged to marry Louis My ers, the ouiy son of a merchant at Glcncoe mills, iu the same county.— The wedding had been appointed' for October 15, and the bride's trousseau had been purchased. It was learned that sho had been seen ou the uvcuing of the day sho fled from home stand ing on the platform of tho Hudson ltiver railroad station to lthinebcck. She was accompanied by a strange man, who was talking to heriu an ex cited manner. They took the train fir New York. Mr. Younghause sent a dispatch to the police of that city asking for his daughter's arrest, and went to the city himself to aid in the search. Superintendent Wailing sent out a genera! alarm, giving a de scription of the girl, but the police were unable to fiud any trace of her. The father returned home in doepair, heart-broken at the disgrace which he had suffered. Amelia was described as a brunette, with a fresh complexion, large spark ling eyes, and well rounded figure.— She was well dressed anil bad receiv ed a good education. A detective saw her on Broadway, near Twenty eighth street, on Monday and stopped her. When he asked her if her name was not Amelia Younghause, she burst into tears and said it was. The officer took her before Justice Mor- flarkctapolice an in private room at the Jefferson court, aud she told her story. Two years ago, she said she was studying in St. John's convent, at East Albany, and uiet a young man named George Norris. Their acquaintance began by means Of a flirtation from the windows of tho convent. Norris found means to send her letters which she received outside the walls of the convent, and they met in secret after wards. He persuaded her to marry him, and took her to a placo where a ceremony was performed, lie prom ised to keep their marriage a secret until she was of nge. Suddenly ho disappeared and she heard nothing more of him for over a year. Believ ing him to be dead she promised to marry young Myers, with whom she became acquainted after she left the couvcnt. One day when she was walking at some distance from home she was startled by tho sudden ap pearance of Norris, who had been watching for an opportunity to see her alone. He had heard of her in tended marriage, aud he threatened to expose her if sho did not leave at once, to live with hiin. They went to Rhinebeck and took a train for New York city. On the way down he told her that the ceremony which had been performed at East Albany was a mock marriage, and she would be dis graced in the eyes of the world if the truth were known. He confessed al so thai his object in taking her away from home was to extort money from her father. She told him that she would not accompany him any farth er, and threatened to appeal to the other passengers on the train if he continued to force his company upon her. He left the train and she arriv ed at the Grand Central depot aloue and without money. Pride kept her from revealing her true name, and informing her father A lady who lived in Patterson, N. J., saw her weeping iu the depot and asked her what was her trouble.— Amelia said that she was alone in the city, without money, and that she wanted to find employment The la dy took her to Patterson and kept her a few days in hope of finding some work for her. Not wishing to re main dependent on the charity of a stranger, Amelia came to the city again on Saturday, and spent the day in wandering about the streets look ing for work. She was unsuccessful, and at night found herself in the city without shelter. She was at length directed to the Children's Aid Socie ty's lodgioghonseiuSt. Mark's placo, where she remainod until Monday. The young lady said that she did not know where Norris intended to tako her when they came to the city, and she did not know where he lived. She wept bitterly while telling her sad history, and she expressed foars that her disgrace would ruin her hap piness at home. Justice Morgan re manded her to the Thirteenth street station until her father sonld be sent for. She was mado as comfortable as possible at the station, and a tele gram sent to Mr. Younghause at Eli zaville. The father sent, a reply that he would be in the city next day to receive his daughter. Australian aborigines are said to have discoved a new stimulant which is called "pitcherine." It is smoked, chewed and applied as a plaster bo hind the ear—a gret improvement on snuffing—and has very exhila rating effect. RED SHIRT RULE' Tliat is What the South is Enjoying at Present Whererer Republicans At tempt to Prosecute a Political Canvaaa. The Rifle Clubs are Now Known as "the Red Shirts,* WASHIXGTOK, Oct. 14.—Informa tisn is received here daily that the outrages in the southern states, and South Carolina particularly, are as common as they ever were in districts where the republicans are attempt ing to make a canvass, Gov. Hamp ton's pledges to the contrary notwith standing. A gentleman at George town, S. C\, writes as follows "On the 7th lust, the democrats held a meeting, one of their great and so called 'grand demonstrations,'all uni formed in their favorite 'old gray' and infamous Hamburg-Butler's em blem, red shirt, and, with sabers, pis tols, and iiixteen-shooters, assembled themselves in one part of tho town, while the republicans held forth in another. They appeared, however, to Lave got highly indignant because wo do net caro to listen to their in cendiary harangues and abuse. One of their speakers, the notorious ex Judge Cook, advised his democratic hearers in these words 'Exterminate the republican leaders! Beat them out! Kill them And you will see how eager they were to carry out his teachings. In the space of a few minutes some of the bullies gallicd forth to the republican meeting, and immediately started a row by at tempting to assail the speakers'stand. A general fight then took place in which one of the republicans was shot, and, to crown the intamous out rage, the democratic cavalry soon came dashing up with drawn swords and pistols, and ordered the meeting to disperse at the point of the sword. Thoy then tore down the stand, cut down the I'nited States flag with their sabres trampled it under their feet and tore it into shreds. "Governor Hampton's organ, in an article entitled 'Hayes in a New Hole,' commenting upon Attorney General Devens' letter, gays 'I'nited States Marshals will never prevent the ap pearance of Red Shirts when snch speakers as Sam Lee are lying to the colored people, nor will tho principle of dividing time be surrendered at the bidding of the admiuisfration at Washington. Tbe people of Sou»h Carolina are not disposed to permit radical hirelings to dupe aud deceive the negroes any loutrer. even when the aforesaid hirelings are protected by the benign administration which inaugurated the Southern policy." Ppet.*in) ihsfirch to the Evening Journal, WASHINGTON, Oct. !•!.— I.alters re ceived here from South Carolina rep resent that the Democrats continue to refuso to allow Republican meetings to be held without dividing the time with their opponents. At the same time the Democrats absolutely refuse to divide the time at their meetings with the Republicans. The Demo crats enforce their demand for divi sion of tipie with the Republicans by aid' of tbe State militia companies, armed with guns furnished by the I'nited Slates Government, at the re quest of Wade Hampton ami Senator Butler. All the accounts agree that the Democrats are trying to terrorize the Republicans, ami that Wade Hampton is doing nothing to protect the latter in their rights. In tho dis trict represented by Congressman Smalls, the Democrats have a body of fifty armi'd men to ride to every point where a Republican meeting isc»]led, and demand a division of time, and when this is refused, they boldly break tho meeting up.

EVANSVII.LE, lnd., Oct. 10.—A young man by the name of Neil met a well-to-do old farmer in a saloon at Burk City, back of Oweusboro, Kentucky, on Saturday night, where they drank together and became quite jovial and frieudly. Neil bought whisky aud started home with the farmer, whose name is Garhart, to spend the night at his house. Neil wanted the old man to drink, when young Garhart interposed. Knives were drawn on both sides, but Neil got the advantage and plunged bis weapon into his antagonist. At this point the mother of the victim rushed to the monster and begged for the life of her helpless boy. Neil wheeled upon the mother and drove his knife into her left breast, causing her in stant death. The drunken wretch ripped young Garhart open so that his entrails protruded.

A Heartloas Butchery FOKT SMITH, Ark., Oct. 15.—John Poatoak was sentenced in the United States Court to be hanged on the '20th of December next.

Special Dispatch to tte Cincianatl (.arette. NEW YORK, Oct. 15.—The Tribune publishes to-morrow the story of the Sonth Carolina ciphers, a more appal ling story of the fraud than that of ei ther Florida or Oregon. The follow ing is a condensed summary of whole page of the Tribune and hun dreds of diapatches. On November 10, 1870, Smith M. Weed was in the democratic committee rooms at the Everett House, in New York. -On Mon.lay, 13tb, the South Carolina Canvassing Board perfected its or ganization, and the same day Field arrived on tho field of action. Here is his first telegram, addressed, ac cording to custom, to Havemeyer, but undoubtedly intended for Col. Pelton CoLr.MniA, Nov. 13. Am here. Things very much mix-1 ed. Intend to count us out. If a few dollars can be placed in Returning Board to insure, what say yon Give news from Louisiana, Oregon and Florida. Tbe dispatch was answered by "Denmark," and Denmark, as we stated the other day, in printing the Florida dispatches, is proved to be Col. Pelton. The New York Bureau was still without news from the other states, and Weed's question about money was evaded. Mr. Weed continued his still hunt and put the following on the wires COI.FMBIA, Nor. 13. Henry Havemeyer, 15 West Seven teenth street New York If returning board can be procured absolutely will you deposit $30,000? May take less. Must be prompt. THOMAS. "Polton's reply to this inquiry has not been found, but the nature of it is plain from Weed's rejoinder: COI.TMBIA, Nov. 14. Henry Havemeyer, 15, W. Seven teenth street, New York: Dispatch received. Parlies to re port this morning. Chamberlain, Kellogg and Stearns acting in concert and intend mischief in every state.— Will telegraph prospects soon. The situation desperate in all three. Weed never flattcrd Tilden with assurances that he had carried South Carolina or any other doubtful state. While every democratic paper was claimiug that Tilden had carried South Carolina, Weed dispatched very different intelligence to Gra mercy Park. Remember that Hamp ton himself only claimed a majority of 1,-150,and then read the following COLUMBIA, Nov. 14. Henry Havemeyer: Best I can figure, Tilden will be over 2.000 behind Hampton, and see little hope, but Bhall keep up appear ances. Capture Louisiana and Florida. What about Oregon. An swer. Weed's movements began to excite suspicion in Columbia, and his posi tion grew uncomfortable. He pro posed to hurry matters, and then to turn over negotiations to somebody else. M. COLUMBIA, NOV Hem*} Havemeyer, New York. Nothing dellnite yet, but working. Things mixed here. Our party claims Hampton. Party aro trading off Tilden. I don't believe it. Pro ceedings in court dont seem to disturb Chamberlain parly. Shall I increase to $.IO,0J0, if neeessarv, to make sure? Select good men to send down, if re quired, as that U the only way. Am watched, and if as well, think better turnover matter here to General Ran dolph. The answer this time was prompt and positive, for Gramercy Park, too, was becoming uneasy NEW VOKK, Nov. 14. Smith Weed, Columbia: Telegram hero. You can go fifty if necessary. Perhaps nse future pros pects for some part, but you must see that trading is not done. I doubt whether you can trust it to person you name. Pelton's principal now urged Weed to try and make one portion pay able after the votes were cast, and another portion after the final re sult. NEW YORK, NOV. 16. Smith Weed, New York Last telegram here. There is un doubtedly good ground upon which a favorable decision could be had, but to be cnngUteut and sustainable, it would and should involve in elect ing Hampton, or else it would bo in volved in inconsistencies impossible to sustain. You must bo satisfied that action upon which papers issues justified by facts and all prevented. Try and make one portion payable after votes are cast, and another por tion after linal result. Doubtless, good faith is extended, but there be some sufficient guarantee accepted. Both these conditions are very impor tant. Telegraph result and what you want done. On the night of the 15th, Woed suc ceeded in obtaining from certain members of the canvassing board a definite proposition, though the terma were highor than he had been led to expect. COLUMBIA, NOV. 16. Henry Havemeyer, New York Telegram received too late lo an swer last night. Don't quite under stand. Do you want me to go home of Stearns (Kla)? Board late last night demanded $85,000 for giving us two or three Electors. The interce der will want something beside think $100,000. What shall I do? Get no aid from Hampton party, who to aay the least, aro indifferent. Pelton's answer is as follows Smith Wood, Columbia: Your telegram here. Should be willing to'accept. Believe it Cham berlain aud Board unites to prevent trading, and expense was made de pendent ou the final success of Tilden in March. The first agreement was for two or three electoral votes to be obtained, we presumo by the process of trading the districts hinted at in dispatch No. 12. Further negotiation was neces sary in consequence of Pelton insist ing that the obligation'should be made contingent on the result in March. To this the Board officers would not consent. COLUMBIA, NOV. 18. Henry Havemeyer. New York: Telegram received. Looks now as though tho thing would work at|75, 000 for all seven votes. Have safe man to bring the stuff, on receiving telegram in the morning. I think now I will meet bim with a party at Baltimore.

NEW YORK, Oct. 17.—Samuel J. Tilden has issued a card relative to recent publications of cypher tele grams in the Tribune.

Heatthy Condition of Our Business Interests. NEW YORK,Oct. 15.—Dun, Barlow & Bro., give the following inter esting statistics of business fail ures For the third quarter of 1878 they were 2,853, as compared with 1,S15 for the same quarter last year liabilities for the lastquarter $66000, 000, as compared with $42,000,000 for the same period of 1877 for the first nine months of 1878 the failures num ber 6,768, aa compared with 6,565 for the same period in 1877 liabilities for the first nino months of 1878 $107,000,000, against $141,000,000 for nine months of 1877. It is admit ted that the petitions in bankruptcy filed in the period named will consid erably exceed the figures given above, but it must be understood that a large number of applicants for relief were either thoso whose failuros had been previously reported or those who had gone out of business 6r wero not en gaged in mercantile pursuits. The above figures refer to failures only of those who were in active business and suspended payment during the period under review. The agency considers that the number of actual failures were not as large as might have been anticipated among 700,000 traders repotted in business, and in view of the temptation offered to ob tain relief from past misfortunes or anticipated embarrasment. The trade of the country is believed to have sur vived what has threatened to be a se rious shock to confidence and credit, growing out of the circumstances of the repeal of the bankrupt law, and excepting the unfortunate epidemic in the south the general conditions are more healthy than at any timo since 1873.

'ft OTTUMWA. i 0 A couple of day's sojourn in,.our neighboring city (the first we have paid it for several years) inspires tig to send a fow charges of grape amd cannister (such as we use) into aur own camp, merely to "wake ua up" and put us "on our guard." Ottum wa is assuming city proportions 'atad making rapid strides in the wayof wholesale and manufacturing inter ests. Her citizens claim for hcur a population of 12,000, and this estimate is probably not far from the truth. A drive over the oity furnished ns with ample evidence of thrift and prosperity as told by the large num ber of new dwellings and businjaa houses of different kinds that haxre been erected tbe past season, and in process of erection among tbe latter class we particularly notice the now packing house being erected by a Liv erpool firm of brick and stone, thifee stories high and covers a spacc of 160 xl90 feet, which when completed will have a capacity for slaughtering and packing 300,000 hogs per annum next to this in magnitude we notice the new building being erected by tbe Ottumwa Starch Company tl%is company represents $50,000 of real dent capital and'when in operation will be a valuable addition to tne manufacturing interests of the city. An Oat Meal mill is also a late addi tion to her manufactories: begins these wo noticed tbe long established pioneer factories such as flouring mills, foundries, engine works, oil mills, etc., etc. Besides all these, Ot tumwa has Holly water Works, 'and right here our fusiladc begins 'Us only since the water works were an established success that the mors im portant of the above enterprises were secured, and to-day Ottumwa stands upon her own bottom (so to speak) she has reached that enviable por tion in the life of a city when she may safely stay at home and attend to business, and reasonably expect that business will come from now on al most unsought other manufactories will come in unasked and OttumHRa will soon be a manufacturing town of no mean importance.—Oskalyysa Her ald. Miners' Superstltiona. FTom the Virginia City (Net.) Chrofliclf. A reporter was talking with an old miner a few days ago who implicit^ believed that no death ever took place in the mines without a warning some kind. "You see," he said, death never comes of a sudden upon the men in the mines. You report ers write up accidents and how some thing gave way and fell quick ana killed somebody. Now this amt 16. There's always some warning. Whiii I see my lantern begin to bnrn low dowu aud blue, I know that tbore |s danger ahead. If it keeps on for* few days, and then begins to waver and flicker, I'll watch it blazo' to am where it points. Now you may aat mo up for a fool, but what I'm tclli^' is tbe gospel truth. When the llaqu leans over (as if it was being worked by a blow-pipe) and points to a man, death has marked him. Some yetA ago when Bill Hendricks was killM in the Savage, the flame of my laf^ tern pointed right at him for over an hour, and when he would move the flame would turn just as if Bill was a loadstone and the flame wa«* mariner's needle. I knew he was gone and told him to bo careful abopt the blast. Well, he got through that all right and got on the cage. As xn went up the candle kept acti£jg strangely, and at times tho flatM would stretch out long and thin Up ward Bill. At length it gave a suff den flicker and Bill reeled to one sif and was caught in the timbers, hoard his dreadful cry as he disapV peared down the shaft and, while he was bounding from side to side, dashing out his brains and scattering his flesh down to the bottom, my ligit went out I never lit that lantern again. It hangs up in my cabin now and it always will. There's more a candle flamo than people think.bL' I'd rather see a cocked revolver points ed at me than a candle flame a rM volver sometime misses, but a candte. flame is sure to kill when it wards a man."
