A moat melancholy affair transpired at 11:16 o'clock yesterday forenoon at No. 00 W&rren avenue. At the hour mentioned, Augustus, only ■on of an old and respected Chicagoan, Lorenz Urentano, committed suicide by shooting him* «olf through the bead, causing almost Instan taneous death. He had long been subject (o epileptic fltu and other Dorvousdisordorfl, which at times rendered him perfectly Insane, and it was in one of those insane intervals that ho jommlltod the rash deed. The unfortunate roang man waa born in this city somo twenty* two years ago, and, having boon brought up al most entirely in this vicinity, ho was well known and beloved by all. His father was at one time tbo editor-in-chief of the Slaata-Zeitung, and bold besides that various positions of honor and trust, The great tiro swamped him, along with many others, and bo retired to Germany, and iu recognition of his ability the Government sent with a commission os American Consul at Dresden, where ho continued to reside until a few months ago. Ilia sou wont with, and acted as Secretary to, the Consulate, but in ono of his Qts of despondency, a little moro than a year ago, ho returned to this city. His mental condi tion rendered all work irksome, nmbtho suffer ing of having nothing to do to engage his mind assisted bis disease in unseating reason. The Corner baa boon notified and will hold tho Inquest to-day. A ROW AT THE TOLEDO. On Madison street, near Clark, is a place known as tho “Toledo," whore boor is dis pensed, and free orchestra music by two or throo females is thrown in. There is n gallery in a portion of this establishment, and fast young men with fast young women frequent it, Sunday evenings this place is crowded. Last night, about 10:80 o'clock, a youth, over whoso head had passed some twenty summers, was sitting leisurely talking ton girl ho bad brought with him. Homo ouo insulted him and there were a few brief words, when a burly 200-pound Teuton pounced upon him and threw him down stairs. The Teuton is a special poheoman employed at tho place. The young men whom tho officer collared was weak and inoffensive, and tho two coming down tho stairs together at such a remarkable paco caused considerable excitement. Tho crowd rushed to the outer door, when an other special policeman employed at tbo estab lishment, drew a revolver, cocked it. and threat ened tho first man who followed. For awhile tho crowd stood at bay, when finally they march ed down stairs and walked out, though not until tho bnrly special who had tackled the weak young man had exhausted him. Though the fuss lasted some minutes, and there waa consid erable excitement both outside and iu, not a po liceman appeared upon the scone. EIGHT HOURS A DAY. BUICKLATEUS* MABS-MEETINri. Tbo bricklayers of this city bold a mass-meet ing yesterday afternoon at the corner of North avenue and Halstod street for the purpose of did* cussing the means by which the condition of the workingmen could bo improved and eight hours' labor be made a legal day’s work, Several gen tlemen made rather tamo addresses in favor of the Eight-Hour law but advanced nothing new. Mr.J. Jeffers, a Ooramnnist, was then introduced. Mr. Jeffers stated that he had been a delegate to the Workingmen's Convention held at Pitts burg on the 17th. Ho unfolded a sorrowiul tale of the treatment of himself and about twenty-five other Communists by that Conven tion,. They got fairly snubbed and sneered at, and 'when ho and the other Socialist delegates saw that they could accom- Sllsh nothing in that crowd, thoy with row from iho Convention in disgust. The Chairman asked if any one had to make any remarks about thin ‘matter, bat no one cared to say anything. Tbo Socialist delegate bad evi dently as little sympathy among the honest bricklayers present as be and ids confreres bad io Pittsburg. After a motion to adjourn bad been mode, "Mr. Winnen, another Communist, got up and said that the report of Air. Jeffers showed how necessary it was for the working men to act in unity If they meant to accomplish anything. Tho Issue wan uni properly before the workingmen, especially before the English-speaking ones. To got up tho proper agitation, the Socialists had engaged speakers to go all over tho country and arouse tbo people, and imbue them with their noble ideas. A mass-mooting would bo held next Wednesday evening at Yorwarts Turner Hall, when addresses would bo made by Mentus. Mc- Guire and Luobko. He hoped the workingmen would tarn out in force, and show tho profes sional politicians and office-seekers that they were numerous enough to deserve mote recog nition than they have heretofore bad. The meeting then adjourned. CRIMINAL. George T. Hmlth, a cooper hailing from Erie, Pa., took a atroll down Boutb Clark street yes terday and allowed himself to bo duped out of tBO by a fair etrou named Minnie Cleary, and then he caused her arrest. Smith trill not pur chase that farm out West, having extravagantly spent all bis money in Ins spree. A daring attempt was made last evening upon (be life of Detective John Macauloy. Shortly after 6 o'clock lost evening au officer patrolling beat noticed a trio of thieves trying to effect au entrance Into tbo paper store of McCann, Pitch & Converse, Nos. 12 and 14 Inv flalle, and producing down upon them captured one of them giving (be narao of Thomas Cotway. The officer turned the follow over to Detcottve Macauloy, and went in search of the other two, who escaped, Macauley pro ceeded to the Central Station with bis man, and Just as he was about entering, Conway's “pal" came up, and with a brick in hand essayed to demolish the officer, but Macaulov dodged the blow. Turning Conway over to Htation-Keopcr Jordan, bestarted in pursuitof the other follow, and abortly afterwards looked tbo two of them up. His assailant feigned drunkenness, and' would give no other name but that of Hank Bomb, which ia known to be false. Both aro young men under age. Joseph Blaudecker and Alex Henderson bad adjoining rooms m the Bo Pule House, No. g-io Bouib Clark street. Tne former bud tine tog gery, while tbe latter spent all bis money tu riotous living, allowing bla apparel to become very shabby. To replenish bis wardrobe be en tered Blaudocker’s room and helped himself to floe clothing valued at *SOO. Last Wednesday Blaadecker noticed his loss, aod reported it at headquarters. On tho same dav Detective Hi ru mens happened to visit the Louho on business, and while there noticed a suepiclous-looklug in dividual taking his departure with a valuable valise m his band. He stopped him, when Hen derson stepped up and said the man wtu all light, and that be bad Just given him tbo articles. Tbe detective allowed the fellow to go on his way, aod on his return to tbe Central Biutiou noticed the reported robbery and ut once con nected his Incident to it. Boturning he arrested Henderson in bis room, and recovered nearly all of the miaaiDß articles, and yesterday bo ■oooeeded la capturing the ohap who nMi off with the tfcliae. He gavo tbo name of Walter Crawford, a formor clerk in Jnstico Haines’ office. Ho was arrested for (bo Horvey clothing bouso robber? somo time ago, bnt eacaoed by proving an alibi. Both bo and Henderson are known to bo members of a well-organized band of thieves. A mmoLAn SHOT. John Rogers, an old and experienced burglar, attnougn not 35 years of ago, bad a close call upon bin life early yesterday morning. Rogers will be remembered as tbo chap who raided the gun stores of J. Butler A Co. and Biggs, Bponcer A Co. In November, 1873, for which lie was sent to tbo Penitentiary for two years. At about 4 o’clock, a man sleeping In Fardndgo’a dry-goods •tore, Nos. 112-114 State street, was awakened by tbo footsteps of some one overhead, and sur mising that it was a burglar, qulotlv opened tho front door auil notified one of the night police. The latter called to his assistance Officer W. A. Sargent, of tbo city forco, and white ho roraninod on watch Sargent entered the building and began a search. Tbo windows and doors wore found fastened, tbo roof was ex amined and found to bo perfectly secure, and (bo ofiloer bad gave up to what ho considered a false alarm, when, Just as bo was about to rotlro bo board tbo footsteps on one of the upper lloors. Returning ho arrived Just in time to eno tbo burglar stop out an open window and run along tbo cornice. lie fired two shots at tho follow, and saw him try to escape by a window in tbo front of No. IOC on tho same street, oc cupied (by 0. A. Wetboroll, dealer In millinery. Ho soon captured him and lodged him in the Armory. One of tbo bullets mads a deep bat not serious wound in tho follow’s right tbigli.. An examination of tbo promises failed to dis cover tbo mode of entrance, and also developed tbo fact tbat tbo safe, containing $30,000 worth of diamonds and SI,OOO In cash, was the objective point of bis visit. In somo way as yet unknown Rogers gained tbo combination of tbo’outor safe doors. Those wore found open, and one of tho kuoba upon the Inner door was completely wrenched off; a few minutes more would have completed his Job. Ssvoral weeks ago Rogers was spotted for vis iting several offices anil stores In tbs city, and bis lay being very well known he was taken into custody, but for want of a moro substantial charge was booked os a vagrant It is supposed tbat his knowledge of (bo premises was gained in some of tbcao visits, and tbat bo had other Jobs on band that lie intended to crook as soon as the opportuuity was presented. LETTERS FROM THE PEOPLE. DAVID J. LXON’S DIBOLAIMER. To the A’ditor of Tho Chicago Tribune Cincxuo, April 22.-*-Vonchsafo mo a word in your valuable paper touching my recent candi dacy fur the position of Alderman. On the day of the primary, my name, in common with that of the Hon. John Wentworth and others, was sub mitted to tlio voters of tho ward. That I pre vailed at that timo was duo to no personal ef forts. 1 acted merely ns “ a looker-on in Vi enna," and accepted tho result iu good faith as the regular Republican nomination, pur posing, if elected, to conscientiously dis charge tho functions of tho olilco. I accredit to myself as many faults and foibles as ever besieged Che soul of Camlet, but none such as your paper persistently at tributed to mo. I had po personal acquaintance with Mayor Colvin nor with Mr. Warren, had never in my life exchanged a word with either gentleman, and knew tbo latter not oven by night. The faot that my name occurred on tho ticket witu bis furnished no adequate reason why I should bo mode to atone for his political past, present, or future. This much I cheerfully accord to Mr. Warren, fair and honorable treat ment of mo from tho day of tbo nomination to the evening of tho defeat. Under date of April 10 the Hon. Elliott An thony, President of tho Republican City Con vention, sent mo a kind and considerate letter from which I transcribe tho following: "lean assure you that 1 have a high regard for you, and believe you worthy of tbo confidence of every man in tho community, whether Demo crat or Republican.” Appreciating Mr. An thony’s position before tho community quite as much os bis kindness, I refrained from a sense of right delicacy from publishing his loiter, and through its influential medium croato politi cal capital in my behalf. In conclusion permit me to say that during tuy long residence in this city 1 never for a single hour companioned with the classes among whom yon have recently included my name. Vonr reflections upon mn have touched mo less on account of mvself than on account of dear friends, compared with whoso good opinion all offices are os nothing. I remain, respectfully, your obedient servant, I). J. Lyon. SUBURBAN. lIYDZ I’UIK. This pretty village has- begun to pat on her summer coat of green, and, with an honest Board of Treaties and improved Government, may hope to acbiovo important uacccse as a real deoco-placo and para before the rail. Frotn inont among the weighty improvements this spring is tbo enlargement and melioration of tbo Hyde Fark Hotel. The proprietors, Messrs. Pearce and Benjamin, have bad a thorough ex« porionco in hotels, and are doing their host to make the place a model of convenience and com* fort. There are already fully UK) men at work upon the building, and the work is being carried forward as rapidly as possible. The gruatest improvement on the original plan is the addi tional wing extending towards tbo lake. Tbo now dining-hall occupies the oullre first floor of this portion, and is larger than that of the Palmer House, while in stylo it resembles somewhat the Grand Pacific dining-room. The . present dining-room will bo changed to a recep tion room and parlors, which will be of service at the hops and parties. The halls have been rendered light and pleasant by the opening of now windows at the south ends, and near the junction of the mam and side halls is au ele vator. Tho now wing will swell tbo nnmbor of guest apartments to 200, thus furnishing ample ac commodations fur ovurJJOO pooplo. Tho rooms aro to ho so near tbo lako that (boy will bo cool and comfortable.

There will bo many minor Improvement* too uumorablo to describe, but which aro peculiarly indispensable to tbo comfort of guests. This will coat $75,000 at tbo lowest estimate.

Corretvondcnes Cincinnati Gazette. Little Rock, Ark., April 16.—Tbo flies of the United States Circuit Court at this place contain au official report of tbo claims of the Hon. James iO. Blaine, of Maiuo. against the Little Rock A Fort Smith Railroad Company. Tboso claims appear to bo based upon certain transactions following tbo aid extended to tbo rood by Congress, first in April. 18G9, and later in March, 1870. They are sec forth at length, and as follows, by a Committee appointed by tbo Court to rooort upon tbo pecuniary relations of Mr. Blaine to this road: Circuit Court of the United States, Eastern District of Arkansas, is.—C. W. Huntington et al. Trustee vs. tho Little Hack A Fort Smith Itallroad Company et aL No. UK). Inequity. Tbo Committee appointed under and by virtue of a decree rendered In said suit ou (he 19th day of De cember. 1874, having beard (he claims presented by James 0. Blaine, respectfully submit the following reports Trior to the month of December, 1870, (be claimant had Induced numerous friends of his, residing In the Htnto of Maine, to buy largo amounts of the first mortgage railroad os writ as land-grant bonds issued by said Little Hock As Fort Smith Railroad Company. These bonds were bought from Warren Fisher, Jr., of llostou, who was tbo contractor for building and equip {-lug tbo cnllro line of said railroad, with whom this claimant had, previously to tho aforesaid purchases, numerous business transactions, and In whom be, as well an tho business community In general, placed great confidence as a moo of great financial strength ind abilities, ami also of Integrity. While tho claimant. J. O. Blame, was passing through Boston on his way from Washington to Augusta, Me., in December, 1870, ho was informed tbatlhe affairs of said Company wore in a flourishing condition ; that the newly elected officers of the Com pany, who bad recently visited Arkansas for the pur pose of investigating Into tho condition and prospects or the road, were highly gratified with tho results, that its bunds bad been pot upon (be market by one of the leading and roost trustworthy banking houses in Boston with a considerable degree of success; in short, that the future outlook was very encouraging. But to moot pressing demands it was necessary that tho Company should Immediately have more ready money. Inasmuch as tho claimant had sold a largo amount of tho bonds among his friends, as before stated, be was asked to try and raise money among them upon tbo insurance that (he loan was to be merely temporary, and would soon bo repaid. This claimant accordingly raised tbo aura of t’JI.OuO, and while passing through Boston on his return to Wash ington in the last of December, at the request of raid FUlior, who was then sick in I tod, and with whom tho claimant had r.nly a short interview, he banded said sum of $31,000 to tbo President of said railroad company. The claimant does not remember what kind of a receipt wan given him for this money, or. in fact, distinctly whether any receipt at all was given. At our request ho has made an examination among his pa]>crs for tho purpose of ascertaining these facts, but reports that he ts tin tbis to find any receivt for thii money. Said Fisher was at that time (December, 1870) the contractor of said railroad company, and by virtue of bis coutract was entitled to receive all the bonds and securities of the Company, and tbo Company itself cuiild not dispose of its securities, except by tho con sent of said Fisher, and through him. It appears that the President of tho Company, in behalf of the Compa ny, kept an account with raid Fisher upon one side of which ho wan credited with money paid by him or de rived from tbo salo of bonds, and upon the other side charged with disbursements made by him as President in behalf of the Company aud for Its benefit. Said Fisher is credited in their account ns follows • •* December, 1970. Received of Blaine, $11,000.” Tbo precise Unto la not given, nor docs the account allow for te/.a( vnrvoie the money leas vaUJ, or tcAof, if anythuxg, teas to be. given/or it. There in no entry of this transaction, nor. Indued, of any other transac tions, upon the hooka of the Company; except entries showing the Issue of bonds to the contractors. The claimant, however, emphatically state* that thin money was not paid by virtno of any understanding and agreement previously had with Bald FUber, or with the Company by virtue of which be was to buy or receive bonds of the Company, but that it was simply and purely a loan of a temporary nature, and te bo repaid an soon as lbs exigency which created the necessity had passed; also that tho loon was mode upon tho belief, and under tho representations, that (ho Company wan in a flourishing financial condi tion, an above stated. It also appears from the above account, kept by tho President of (ho Company, that during tbo lust of December, 1870, and early iu January, 1«71, said Fisher waa charged with fcuudry payments amounting to about SIH>,OOO, includ ing a house in Little Hock, cash to nay coupons on bonds, for Iron, freight, pay-rolls, and uis own check, upon which a bank advanced money for tbo benefit of the Company. It is Impossible to elate for what ape clflc purpose tho money paid by tho claimant waa ap plied. but there can bo no doubt that it wu fur tbo uso of the Company, and to enable (ho contractor, Fisher, to perform tbo obligations of his contract, in other word*, tho Company bad the benefit of the money, but they were entitled to receive that benefit without additional cost, for the Company bad at'thattlmo leaned to said Fisher a much larger amount of bonds than ho could demand under his contract. Of this fact, as well aa of tho actual condition of offalre, tide claimant was entirely Ignorant, and ho claims to bare paid this money under a mistake of facts. tiiich In brief la the case of the claimant os pre sented to us. Ho docs not bate Ida claims upon a legal foundation, but be asserts that under the powers given ns by the aforesaid decree we are bound to con rider not merely legal, but also equitable claims, and ibot the facts, ns above stated, disclose such strong equities io hla favor os to call upon us to award him some compensation, while be maintains that bis claim should bo treated lu the same manner and settled upon tho same basis as the claims of persona who advanced money to save tho land grant at different Unite, or to pay coupons upon bonds issued by the State of Arkan sas, for the reason that his money helped to sustain and carry along for a time tho credit of tho Company, and preveutedita collapse until a later date, Still be offers to accept lu full settlement and satisfaction fdu.OOO in the Ant-mortgage bonds of Iho new Compa ny, upon which interest shall not begin to occruu until Jan, 1, 1877. If uls claim should be settled upon the same basis as that of those referred to above, be would bo entitled to receive $(0,000 lu said new bonds, A majority of the Executive Committee of the Oaard of Directors of the Idttlo Hock & Fort Smith Uallroad have been present on some occasions when we have considered (hla claim, and wo have submitted the above proposition to them without Intimating in what light wo received the claim, or the proposition. They have slgnlflud to us that they should approve and award, giving the said Blalno fit,ooo in (ho tint-mort gage bonds of said railway ot j»ar with the coupons duo January and July, INTO, cut off before delivery. In view of these facts, therefore, we recommend to this honorable Court that, upon the execution of the said James O. lltalns of a release of all claims and demands of every name and nature which ho may have at law or in equity against the Llttlo Hook k Fort Rmlth Uallroad Company, and thu Little Itock h Fort timith Hallway, by reason of tho aforesaid loan and payment, and upon an assignment and conveyance to the Little Hock it Fort Rmlth Hallway of all claims or cause* of action he may have against any other per son, or per Hons, in auy way growing out of, or con nected with, sold loin and payment, too Treasurer of said railway bo directed to deliver to the said Ulaluo 1-1.000 la fint-mortgago bonds of said railway, upon which Interest shall not begin to accmo until July j, 1870, all previous coupons, and coupons of said date, to bo cut off before delivery.

TUX DBMOOnATta CANDIDATE 70X QOVEBHOB 07 INDIANA, WatMnctvn Corrtsvondene* IndtanapclitNnet, Away Lack In ono of the seats in tbe outer circle, and near the central aisle leading to tbe Speaker's desk, sits a tall, dark old man, tbo imago and oonntorpart of tbo late Air. Lincoln, It one could picture what Ur. Lincoln would have looked like If he bad stuck to rail-splitting, and hadn’t gone into politics for a living. Tbo prototype is something over 0 foot in height, has a bead of black, bristling hair, streaked slightly with gray, a cadavoroui sun-browned face, upon which no whiskers are allowed to en croach, cheek-bones which are exceedingly prominent, and a pair of eyes so deep-sot that they appear to bo taking a survey of all that goes on in their Immediate vicinity with a sort of quiet Indifference, as if to says “Well, go on with your foolishness, it’s none of my funeral." Tbo tall ungainly tignre is clad throughout in an old fasbioued suit of home-span, home-made blue loans, strongly suggestive of tbe backwoods Visitors in tbe galleries and on tbe floor of the House of Beprououtatives invariably pause to ask who tbe queer-looking old mao is, and they are as invariably told that they are gazing upon ** Code Jimmy " Williams, lleproaomativo from tho Second Indiana District. “Uncle Jimmy" is also denominated “ Tbo Granger," though why he should be identified with a crowd with whom be has nothing in common politically is one of those mysteries whoso solution one can ouly arrive at by intuition. He 1s a quiet man, rarely rising tools feet to say anything, butwbeo bo essays to speak he la certain to have some thing to aay, and that something is apt to be very much la tbo oatoro of bosmeia, <’ Undo Jimmy** is a bard fact of Western experience and evolution. Hoy ami nan, bo has. passed a somewhat loos bfo as a farm* or and frontlorsmaa.—using tbo term in a modified sense,—and for many years lie ban represented hie Granger constituency In tho Legislature of bis own Stale, lie ban overbad tbo reputation of being a solid rather than a brilliant man. With none of the graces of the polished orator or tbo jinette of tbo trained de bater, ho bae enjoyed some distinction as nos sosfllng a modicum of bard, horse sense, and of knowing the rules of parliamentary law as well as most of bis neighbors. In tbo formation of the Committees of tho llonso. " Undo Jimmy ” was assigned to that of Acconnw, which has to do with tbo expenditures of the Contingent Fund. In those times of retrenchment, “Uoolo Jlmmr ” is, as it ware, a man raised up provi dentially for the placo. A stern old man of am ple abstemious habits; a wearer of homespun; unused to tbo commonest loxnrles of city life; a man who despises allcfforolnaoy and Sybaritism in our modern roodon of living, is not apt to look leniently nnon extravagance in any form. Could •* Uoolo Jimmy ** have bis own way entire ly, be would, perhaps, reform tho Ilouso back to Spartan habits of economy and abstinence. Tbs phonographic reporters complain that they have recently been deprived of soap, towels, and spittoons, and that if the thrifty Chairman of Accounts continues in his work of reform, they will be obliged to undergo severe hardships. They sarcastically remark that "Undo Jimmy” may not sot so high a value on soap and towels as tho rest of man kind, coming, as bo does, from a region where tbone accessories of civilization are little known, but these are base aspofeions. The Granger statesman simply desires tbo phonographorn to furnish their own towels, or wipe on tholrown handkerchiefs, as bo docs; and, as for soap. If they wash their bands in tbo morning before breakfast, tbov will do well. As for spittoons, they can expectorate to tbdr delight on the stove, or out the window, or on tbo floor Many excellent men have done this all their lives, and are none the worse for it. It is whispered that "Uncle Jimmy” contem plates a raid on tbo bath-rooms and water-closets, which are at present very luxurious, and managed in a costly and extrava gant way. That tbo abolition of those conven iences would bo mot with a d&mor by tbo major ity of members of overv shade of political opinion admits of no doubt whatever, so deeply ban tbo canker-worm of luxurious solf-indul pence eaten its way into ttio very heart of oar free institutions. A proposition baa already been mado to replace tho comfortable, cane-bot tomed pivot-chairs and clonks by plain wooden benches. Tbo abolition of snittooas and tbo removal of carpets would certainly go a groat way toward reducing tbo contingent expendi tures for tbo Tlouso, bat, ss I have already hinted, tbo spirit of extravagance baa taken ho Arm a bold upon our psoplo—and Representa tives in Congress aro not exempt from tbo in fliction—that it is extremely doubtful if such a measure can bo successfully carried through. Nevertheless.

To the ftUtcr (\f The Chicago Tribune Blackxieiirv, Kano County. 111., April 22.- Having convoraod with several of the loading Republicans of this (Kano) county this week, I Hud thorn divided in their choice for Governor. Bomo aro for Washburno, others aro for Cullom, bat fair for Beveridge. Our County Convention to chooso delegates to tho Stato Convention will be hold at Gonova on tho 20th of May. Our farm ora will then bavo tholrcrope In, and, it is hoped, will attend tho primary mootings. If wo can havo a fair and full expression of tho Republic ans in this county, Washburno will got the dele gation. Wo havo a largo Gorman population, which is almost unanimous for Washburno. In my opinion, ho is tho only Republican wo can oleot for Governor. Tho Contra! Republican Congressional Com mittee of this district havo decided to call a con vention, to nominate a candidate for Congress, the third wcok in September. Was this put off to lato for tho boaotlt of Ilurlbut ? 170 in not tho ohoico of tho Republicans of this county. Quo of his strongest supporters during two cam paigns is decidedly opposed to his ro-olootion. Mr. Lathrop is unquestionably tho cboico of tho Ropnblicaus of this couuty. lie is a man of un bending integrity and unblemished character. Thu pooplo can confide their interests in him without fear of betrayal. Old Kane.

Inas much as this is tbo Contonuial year, and almost every Stalo in tbo Union is taking stops to mark Us history in sorao peculiar way, wo aro inclined to think Illinois could tako no moro fitting ac tion m this bobalf than bv electing a native Illinoisan to tbo highest position within tbo gift of the pooplo. Happily, wo ncod not search far for a man who, in addition to being a native born citizen of tbo State, unites in himself In an eminent degree those qualities that command tbo admiration and confidence of the people, and which shonld adorn the high office of Governor of the State. Of course you are awnro that 1 re fer to tho Hon.

Q, SUPPRESSED DOCUMENTS. OXiD BTOUIEH IMI’UOATINO AIUIV-OWtOERfI IK COTTON-HTBAUNO— QE.N. W. K. SMITH'S STATE- RENT. The Now York World, which is a reckless partisan Democratic paper, publishes tho follow ing statement: The New Orlwna Time* of April II published what purported to bo an account of the inveaUgaiiona con ducted during tbo Warlu the Department of the Gulf, by the Commission appointed by President Lincoln, of which 0«d. W. F. Bmllh, now President of the Now York Police Board, was President. The article affirm ed that inch frauds wero unearthed and such high officials inculpated by the work of tho Commission that, had ita report over been published, "Gen. Grant would not have boon President of the United Htatcs, and not one In fifty of the claims for captured colton which have been filed in Washington would ever have been heard of." Tho article continues; “ When Oeu, U. S. Grant was Secretary of War ad Interim, when E. M. Blanton was forcibly ejected, one of the first things done: after s forma] occupation of the building, was to bunt up tho report of that Commission and bunt It." The ruoori of the Commission, according to the rimes’ Informant, inculpated CoL Robinson, Gen. Duller, Gen, N. P. Banks, and others, In numerous Irregulari ties. It is also said to have contained evidence of the Irregularities of Col, Kilbourne, Capt. Beamans, Capt. Page. Don Pardee, and a Ur. Goodrich, at vari ous times Provost-UtnbaU at Baton Rouge. The fiiMl Hives as its authority sn ex-officer of the United BUtrsßocret Service, who was employed by Gen. Smith to unearth the frauds which afterwards con stituted the subject of the report. A reporter of tho World yesterday called on Oen. Smith, and asked what truth there was !u the state ments. The General said that during (he War Presi dent Lincoln appointed him, John T. Brady, and soother gentleman, a Commission to proceed to the Department of the Gulf and investigate certain aliened abuse* In the Federal service. The greatest corrup tion wse found to prevail among the very highest offi cials, and prompt measures were taken lo check it. . The first man caught was Provost-Marshal Col. Robin son. Gen. Smith deluded his operations by seizing the books in the bank, and getting hold of toe Presi dent, Mr. Ur sham, lie then went down to the bank, held a Court la tho vault, and. having got the sworn statements of Robinson and Graham, was enabled to got bold of the others. The subsequent Investigations Implicated a number of officers of high rank, and, had the report ever been fmbllshed. It would have wrought important change* n the army. It did not Implicate Gen. Grant, Butler, or Banked Nor did U a tied cotton dalme to any great extent. Tho Commission only Inquired Into such cases whore the United Slates officials were Implicated or suspected of having passed cotton through the lines Irregularly. The statement that the report would have greatly affected the claims filed at Washington is therefore incorrect. Gen. Smith personally inquired into four or five cotton cases, but docs not know If they have ever been tbo subject of claims. Gen. Smith said he bad never beard that bis report bad bean burned. Congress baa called for It two or threu limes, but It was not forthcoming. The War De partment hoe Invariably’ replied that It was not M advisable In the Interest tw public service to make the report public. It may nave been burned, and the General •am he could easily Imagine that tours were people of Inlluence who had e direct interest lo having It de stroyed. But, if Congress wants It now, It can havs ft d “P Uc *i«« of aU tbs papers and of this ore at tbs service of any one inthorixed to call for them. *’ It was toe ImDortanL* said Qia. Bpdtb, u and hit too tssny mg to defend myself by keeping copies of all tbs papers connected with the report, ami the report itself. r ' Uen. Smith aald he did not care (o htmielf pnbliah the report when (Jongreas had failed to gel It after re peated application (o the War Department, but be was ready at any moment to giro It to the proper authori ties If they aaked for It, which they never bad. This ranch ns would say j that, as one of the results of the Investigation, he bad re covered M.noo In gold and 910,000 In cur rency from (wo of the men mentioned In tho Now Orleans Timet. Fortunately fur some, too Investigation was cut short by the close of the Wsr, whjch also prevented the Immediate publication of the report. In tho esse of one United Hiatts officer the Croof was so clear that a court-martial was ordered, ut the order was afterwards countermanded by Gen. Grant, and the officer shortly afterwards received a distinguished mark of favor and quick promotion. Tho papers In this caao were sent to tbo office of the Adjntant-Genersi, where Gen. Smith thinks they may still be found if Congress wants them. The frauds exposed In the report era those com mitted tn tho seizure and confiscation of cotton, sugar, nnd other contraband of war, o great part of which was hover accounted for; frauds upon traders desirous of crossing the lines, who were blackmailed by the officers commanding, and wholesale frauds In the purchase and sale of army supplies of every kind.

The outside counties in this district are de termined that Polk County shall not furnish the’ candidate for Congress ; and it is probable that, to effect this, a now man entirely will be agreed upon by the candidates opposing Williamson, although the friends of Duugan, of Lacan, are confident he will win.

Onrtin has tbo solid support of tbo Pennsylvania Democratic delegation for tbo Yico-Prosidcncy. * THden doesn't want a pledged delegation from Now York to BU Louts, but bis friends rather in sist on giving him one. Of course, ex-Son*lor Matt H. Carpenter would not Instignto rumors roiloctlng upon tho integrity of Secretary Bristow. One of Bristow’s political aphorisms: “I would tax all the property of the State to edu cate ail tbo children of tho Btato.” Prof. Soolyo will likely bo called on to rep resent the Free-Traders and Prohibitionists of Massachusetts as a Gubernatorial candidate. All tbo religious Journals aro " hammering away "at Hoctotary Taft for visiting the forts about Now York on Sunday, A steady course of missioo-Bcliools may save him yeu Didn’t tbo Now York World man weep croco dile tears when ho wrote that touching sentence: "The most melancholy news which it tins ever fallen to our lot to record,” etc. ? So aorry. Thurman will consent to take the second place, with Tildon at the head. If Tildon should bo elected President, tbo song of Tlmnhan would doubtless bo ; "Here’s to the next man that dies.” According to the Boston Globe, Secretary Bris tow remarked to a Government otficial well known in Boston, recently: "If they will only let mo stay whore I am I shall bo satisfied. I have never sought the Presidency." Nobody accuses Bmtow of attempting to manipulate tho custom-houses in kia own inter net, yet aa Secretary of tbo Treasury bo could exert more Influence upon tbo Treasury officials than anybody else, if he wore that sort of m"n. Young Bennett and Mr. Dana aro working for Conbling. la this a confession of Tildco’a weakness? They seem to argue that the next President- ought to come from Now York, and that Conbling ia the only New-Yorker who baa tbo gboat of a chance. Tbo Detroit Tribune commends the discretion of those Itepubiican Conventions in tbo Booth which have refrained from instructing their del egates in favor of any particular candidate. Inasmuch as tbo South can’t help to elect, It shouldn't help too much to nominate. The lUchmond (Vo.) Dispatch is very sure that Qon. Hancock's connection with tbo execu tion of Mrs'. Surratt renders it certain that he could not he elected to any office of honor or profit by the people of tho United States. The same condemnation it passes upon Gen. Hart ranft, of Pennsylvania. The Industrious accusers of the Secretary of tho Treasury are doing a substantial service to the Republican party. At their present rata of progress they will have at leant one llkelv can didate who has paseed safely through the fire of investigation, ready for presentation to the Cin cinnati Convention.—JVieto York Timet. Tho citizens of Chicago have risen in their might and ground the tax-fiends into the dust. But we feel quite safe in saying the fiends will rise again. Hammers are known to resemble truthlo this respect. 'When Chicago has recov ered from this brief spasm of virtue, the steal ing will bo hotter tnan before.—Cincinnati Oa ulte. "A good old, whacking, high-pressure, radi cal life” of Bristow la the Vourier-JoumaUt promised by Waitersoa. Tbs 0.-J, is not for him for President, because ho Is an extreme radical Republican. But there is one loud of f;ood-wUl between him end Watlorsoa: as the alter puts it: "He is tbo only honest Repub lican, and I am tbo one Democrat who is not afraid to talk out in mealin'.” Borne young men la Cambridge, Maas., have formed sn association whose object is to secure the attendance of tho more respectable citizens at caucuses and ward meetings. James Russell Lowell has consented to serve as President. The organization is very simple, as also are its methods of work. A committee of eight is ap- 6 olnted in each ward, and it ia their duty to no fy the better class of olUzens when their at tendance Is desired at primary meetings. Th* Hoopftrton (111.)

Tho Exposition Flail in Cincinnati Is already homy arranged for the Republican Contention. The sealings for delegates comprise 9,000 chairs in toe parquetto; chairs for B6d persons are on tbo stage; space for 160 reporters, which may bo increased to 900, is In front of the stage. The balconies have a seating and standing capacity combined for 2,000 spectators, so that in alt thoro may bo as many as 4,760 participants in tho nomination of the next President of tbo United mates. Tho Associated Press failed to Inform the Eastern papers to what an extent tho indopond ont voter was abroad in Chicago last Tuesday. Mr. Clark Lipo was the regular Republican caudl date for City Treasurer, and tlcketisnltli his name on vroro at all the polls, yet be ran nearly 10,000 votoa behind the Republican candidate for City Attorney, who was elected by a good majority. So far as polities entered Into the contest, the Republicans, except m this instance, wore vic torious,—a fact which the Associated Press neg lected to mention. Hie Now York Herald disapproves of going to tbo Supremo Court for a party candidate for President. It sayst "The fact that Judge Davis, of the Supremo Conrt, is a member of tho Supremo Odurt, should debar him from any consideration as a candidate for tho Presidency. We could havo no precedent more unfortunate than to have tho Supremo Court a preserve for Presidential candidates. The ambition of Chase dishonored tba office. Row much liner Chiof- Jnstico Waite appears than either Chase or Davis when ho declares that nndor no circum stances will be become a candidate for tho Pres idential or any other office while he holde bis present position.” In commenting on the Winslow extradition case tho Toronto Otobe of the 20th Inst, save although tho United Stales do not hohavo well about treaties, the English Government in re fusing to surrender Winslow seems to bo making more than one mistake. By a strict Interpreta tion of tho treaty they should give him up. The letter of tho treaty says so, and it is not pro tended that Us spirit Is intended to bo violated by the United States. Rather should England rejoice to hand him over for trial, and, if pos sible, conviction and punishment, looting tho real cause of alarm to oe lost ho should wriggle through loopholes of tho Jaw, and so glvo en couragement to others. Speakers of the House of Representatives are os different in thoir ways of using the gavel as tboy are different in personal peculiarities. To übo tho gave! promptly, at’tbo right timo, and sparingly, is tbo secret of success in tho chair:' tbo slightest intemperance with the gavel vitiates quickly tbo power of any presiding offi cer. Mr. Kerr understands this perfectly; bis gentle and deliberate, but emphatic and forcible, manner, would almost enable him to dispense with tbo gavel in tbo ordinary proceedings of tbo House. When there is disorder, ho docs not add to tbo confusion, but eits quietly la tbo chair, tolls tbo llouso.

The New York TVorW throws up Us hat over tbo action of tho Democratic Convention in Ne braska. It says: "Last year the gallant Demo crats of Nebraska earned tbo thanks of all who baa at heart tbo truo welfare of the party, bv giving thoir voice for tho hardest of Hard Money just on the eve of tho declaration of their brethren of Now York. This year also they come promptly Into tbo Reid and display the firm zeal, confidence, and devotion to prluciolo that tho hour demands. Again tboy givo the lie to the oft-repeated statement that the members of the agricultural class in tbo least-developed part of tbo country are for rag-raonoy,—havo con founded the need of more capital nod the cry of " More currency.” With Hard Money and Re form on thoir fiag, It is not surprising that tho frontier Democrats prefer Gov.
