resignations which Mr Conk ling banded to Gov Cornell for himself and Platt are more likely to be viewed as merely on account of lost patronage than dictated by devotion to any great priteIple CoNKLuitt and Platt resigned: The American people u f all in the world may be trusted to smile contemptuously upon this Ppoiled-child business They will take them at their own estimate as unfit to werve longer IF Ár Conk ling thinks the Atnerican people are going to be lost mad-ring contemplation of his resignatory coup d'etut be will think differently of it when he finds them emitemplating

sufficed to convict kith him and the for political instead 'of tiovernment ends Tua Northern Republicans tintl a conaiderable class of people in the South who got their first education in war who have

Statutes of the United States say sec 17: "When during the session of the Legislature of any State a vacancy occurs in the representation at such State in the Senate similar proceedings to fill such vacancy shall be had on the second Tutsday after the Legislature is organized aud la MY notice of such vacancy" That i the Legishture shall elect ma provided in the preceding erection when the vacancy occurs when the Legislature is not in session The section is awkwardly worded when it would have been tos easy to be clear For the present case it is sntlicient to Ray that the Legislature now in session ill elect successors to Platt and Conkling as they well knew when they resignelL or if it should adjourn withont electing they know that Cornell will reappoint thtw if they desire it Such resignal ions are unusual if not unprecedented on account of differences of opinion amongst Senators and it is this makes such action childish The State kends its representaOvert to the Senate to represent its views to do the best for it after comparison of views and finding out what is best for all and if after comparison and study there are antagonisms and they are F trougly opposed they are to contend strongly When the majority is against them they are to submit There is no ease we can conceive el I n which Senators should resign because they are beaten in the Senate There is a ditlerence of opinion as to w hether a St nator should resign when instructed by the Ifrgislat ore of his State In a matter w here he cannot obey the instructions Perhari the better ()pinion is that he should vote his sentiments and appeal to the people at the next election The man who resigns because be cannot have his own Way in a body where that mnst be the ease daily as to many and thaP too upon a mere qttestion of patronage exhibits himself as an overgrown boy Ile i placed there to do his duty in adversity and in sunshine and never to leave unlms when he feels that he cannot discharge his duty by reason of differences not with the South but with his own people If Mr tonkling resigned in order to be approved it would have been accepted that Cornell approved that the Legislature would re-e:ect him It would be however the sante Legislature which approved the appointment of Robertson which elected Platt which has obeyed Conkling implicitly in local affairs If the appeal is to the people it is a very absurd appeal and the more so if Mr Conk-ling supposes the present Legislature will be taken for the people At the most if he should find his action approved in a new popularelection it would be only the opinion of New York and 3f States 74 Senators might stand the othiir way and then the spoiled boy frotn New York would have to resign again and so on until resigning might become chronic with New York Senator- PossinimiEs OF AMERICAN DEVELOPMENT It IA strange how some people wait tin-tit the moving world runs over them and I crushes them before they will ever understand that it is moving at all It is safe to say that at least nine-tenths of the people of this country have little faith in Mexico as a field for enterprise and little belief in the future effect of Mexican development upon this country When one looks back a century and sees a handful of people occupying a strip of Atlantic coast and reflects that the gigantic stride across the continent has been taken within one hundred years that the great territory of Louisiana was added that Florida was acquired that Oregon became ours that California and all the territory of the Mexican conquest became the property of the United States it becomes still more a matter of wonder that any man can doubt the destiny of this country When the value to the United States of the territory acquired is known and acknowledged it becomes St ill owns a matter for wonder that any one can doubt the value of the great commercial movement into Nlexico our history soggests but one doubt and that is whether the methods of the United States have become those of peaceful and commercial extention of mere influence or whether they may not be floe of compiest anti istree That we are henceforth to he a peaceful commercial people we think not at all doubtful With the end of slavery the im-enLive to conquest and acqui-dtion of - - Tha -- aim at now is pecuniat7 advantages the profits of commerce without the expenses of war We have grown prudent and thrifty eareful in developing our resources cautious and economical eager to find markets where we can make the most of them at the least cost to ourselves and in railway extension cementing close ties of commerce an mutual interchange we find more profit them in conquest In all this broad country there is scarcely a handful in laver of conquest while the great majority of the people of the United states oppose any acquisition of territory where our interests clearly lie in quite other relations with our weak neighbors The development of Mexico will furnish the United States for fifty years a market which will atrord them the profits that always accrue to those who triule with a people that have not acquired their own stage of developwent and civilization When they have advanced to a point here that is no longer the case we -hail enjoy with them the mutual benefits which accrue to nations which trade with each other upon an equal footing The question of ac luisition of territory is not one ion present consideration by the people of either country It is sufficient fur both that thcre is nut only no desire for such an issue but a positive opposition on the part of the great majority of the people of both countries to any such con Insion In the far future if it -hotild ennIP about it will Ie when both hesrtily dtsire it auI the interests aud civilization CONKLINti REsitiNED Mr Conkling deft:mot in his effort last summer to nominate kraut and secure control of patronage in 'New York declined to support tarfield until assured of a chance at spoils Angtied at a personally offensive appointment he formed a league with Southern repudiators endeavored to array the Eepublican Senators in hostility to the President to shear the executive office of its constitutional prerogatives Ilefeated in his effort to create an irresponsible oligarchy of the Senate depriving the country of any personally rentonsittle appointing power he hat resigned not upon any great and vital question but upon defeat in a matter of mere patronage and machine polities and that too when it can never he the duty of a Senator to resign unless it be when be finds himself at issue with his own conAittlenta npon some vital question The President has gained a great victoy for the Constitution but Mr Conkling goes tt repair the machine to engage in war to place himself at the head of the stalwart Republicans It will not do to consider this the end of Conk-ling in politics The public will consider this action either tha of an arrogant man smarting under disappointment or an attempt to gain the advantage on a mere question of patronage The result will be to throw together the Mahone repudiators of the South and t he stalwarts of the North against the conservative element of both sections I of both demand it It will not prevent or hasten that event for' the United States to neglect the fieid of Mexican development or for Mexico to refuse to be civilized Indeed looking at the matter from their own standpoint of opposition to American unity the Mexicans may well fear that their State of semiCiViliZSCWEI alone gives ground for apprehension Civilization would perhaps remove the only danger of American aggression 11 along with opposition to conquest and annexation there is a feeling that events may render such i conclusion necessary it is only because Mexico ir uncivilized anti unable in her present F tate to discharge the duties of an enlightened nation towards an enlightened people As to the quest:on whether fifty millions of civilized and enlightened people at a stage of civilization relatively and comparatively the highest on earth will or not teach and civilize eight millions lying near them and closely connected with them by mutual interests nut the slightest doubt need be entertained The very nature of the questiun determines the issue THE END OF THE REPUBLICAN PART Just after the election when the Republicans were expessing great confidence that they had won the final victory which established their party forever when many Democrats were either giving up in despair or openly porclainting independence and critittising Democracy as a wooden-headed blunderer we ventured to take quite a different view of the situation nod to assert th-at neither the confidence of the victor nor the despair of the vanquished created fit condition or disposed to the calm frame of mind necessary for the consideration of the actual state of a trai rs We then asserted that before the end of two year this stoning stroeg party actually strong in nothiug but a certain close organization for the purpose of obtaining and holding on to the spoils would find itself hopelessly split into contending factions and past into final and utter disorganization Criticism of Democratic blunders of which it has committed enough as most parties composed of human beings do declared a healthy process provided it were not done in despair and cowardice anti were not carried to criticism of truth along with falsehood In considering a moribund party we do not concern ourselves as to when it will die but only to know that it will (lie and to await its demise calmly The present situation of the Republscan party shows how little value were the fears of the despairing and the confident braggadocio of the victor No party Wa3 ever so helplessly and hopelessly torn by factional disturbance so beslimed and befilthed and shown up as the fool corrupt honeycombed thing it is From the Presidential center out to the remotest star route its hollers agents understrappers first second and third rate all are shown to be a mere ring for the securing and division of spoils money and honors socalled ready to bargain intrigue promise offices for influence pledge and use inthience for offices in utter violation of every principle of republican government and pure administration We call the attention of the conservative Republicans of the North who vote for support and do not belong to this ring that there is no evil principle engendered in the South which will compare with this in magnitude and baneful effect upon society anti government The worst that has ever been charged a determined hostility to the negro is but an attack upon a race which has but a small place in this country at the best while this is an attack upon the entire social and political fabric under which all white and black North and South have to live To halting Democrats in the South to the despairing poor souls who require to be solaced and encouraged by a little success and perhaps a taste of office now and then we ask them to pause lest they grow faint just at the wrong moment We make no prediction as to the precise outcome or the manner and form of it but we do take this exposure anti the recent fiasco and all that has come out of it and flowed front it to assure the American people that all Conkling-Mahonism all stalwartism all bloody-shirt politics all centralization ideas all war prejudices all war passions all Northern and Southern Es' torbonism all carpet-bagism all the evil relics of war and war politics all paraphernalia of corrupt and desperate party warfare all that is not compatible with pure government and trite nationalism will be laid finally acd forever asleep in the next election "Fate (lie anti none resign" was not said of Conkling and Platt but if they think this is a shrewd movement they will be disabused of that opinion when they find the verdict of the public taking two directions neither complimentary Some will view it as the spoiled-baby action which would natural flow from Conkling's pettish arrogant dictatorial style others as a cheap piece of sensational would-be smartness which is not smart at all Only two ix rsons in the world will see in it devotion to duty and the attitude of profound statesmanship—Mrs Platt and Mrs Sprague Tito!:4: two whipped children Conkling and Platt have taken their spanking like badly spoiled little boys and got angry and broke their Senatorial combined whistle and rattle so that it won't rattle any more until it is repaired Now it would serve them right if the New York Legislature should turn their combined whistle and rattle over to some of their unspoiled brothers or even some of their little Republican sister-4 would do better titan thy into a passion and break their toys in that way Any two of their strong winded sisters would afford an agreeable contrast skw Books t

CONKILINWS VERACI I Y Kole Ho Mid a Faisebood sed Trusted to Ike Esereey of sit Executive bete sloe to Preteet M The Washington correeponident of the Cincinnati GaAte thus tells the story of Mr Conk ling's lack of veracity The occasion was the noted debate over punishing the witnesses White and Rama-deli for refusing to tell who gave them a copy of the Treaty of Washington The Senate in executive sesion had pase-ed a resolution ordering an investigation into the premature publication of the treaty The newspapers had charged Mr Conk-ling and the late Senator Carpenter with originating the inquiry It was well known that this was true although their action had been in secret session Mr Conk ling SMARTIN UNDER THE sumte of nearly the entire press of the country and trusting to the veil which is thrown over executive sessions stood up in open session and in the presence of his associates who knew the resolution of inquiry to have been his denied to the galleries and to the country that he and Air Carpenter had taken action in this matter On this point rising toa personal explanation he said: Mr Conkling—Mr President The matter before the Senate as seen by the public has been beclouded and encumbered with allegations so unfounded as to merit correction Some of these inventions relate to me and were they wholly personal in their effect no notice of them here would be appropriate They relate however to acts done if done at alt in my representative character and nothing is plainer than the duty of a representative to hold himself responsible at all times to his constituents and to answer to them for all public or otheial acts I th(refore improve thisopportunity to say something of toy connection with the pending inquiry meaning and wishing to take the whole responsibility of every part of my Participation in it The investigation was NOT StAitiRSTED OR ORRINATED BY ME or by the Senator from Wisconsin It originated in executive session and therefore under the rules of the Senate I ant at linerty to say only that the betrayal of I he treaty and the need of an investition aire not brought to the notice of Senate by the Senator from Wisconsin r by me Indeed I heard for the first time in the Senate that an alleged copy of the treaty had been made public The statement was node that a newspaper in Cincinnati and a newspaper in New York bad published it This was the day after the publication and was toy first information on the subject I had seen neither paper and did not see either until the committee had been raised to investigate nor had I ever heard a suspicion of the hand or means by w high the document found its way to the public THERE ArPRE EVIDENCE3 or SURPRISE on the face of the Senators at this brazen statement and the correspondents who knew it to be fa?se watched the course of the debate closely to see whether it would be allowed to pass unchallenged Some fifteen minutes alter Crinkling had spoken Henry Wilson came in and as the debate was proceeding on the resolution which had been introduced to discharge the witnesses he at once took part He had not heard Mr Conkling and the startling ellect of his words can well be imagined when he said: Mr President we have had an investiga- tion The honorable Senator front New York (Mr Conkling) prepared the resolntion It was introduced by the honor- able Senator from Wisconsin Mr Carpenter Mr Carpenter—I call the gentleman to order lie has no right to discuss what took place in executive session Mr Wilson—I beg pardon for that Mr Conkling was in the cloak-room at this moment tme of his friends went In hastily and told him of the exposure Mr Wilson had made of the secrets of the executive session Mr Conkling appeared and stepped quickly to his seat and sat down ahnost as white as marble while the eyes of most of the Senate and all in the galleries were fastened upon hint Ile sat for live minutes pale with lout-treed lips and with rage written—M-Iover his face When he arose it was as if in the chamber of death He scented to feel that tie stood convicted before the audience Then followed an attack upon Wilson for revealing the secrets of the executive session PiTA NIL El' 11AT-1'11E11'S I he Supreme Court Dettrodett by Rio Contirmotion New York Commercial Bulletin The real significance of the Senate's confirmation of Mr Stanley Matthews as a Supreme Court Judge is not in connection with its party relationship but in the fact that a power has arisen la the country tehicit is strong enough now to orertwar brith the great political parties and right in the teeth of an opposing popular opinion and of every dictate of propriety to compel those two parties as occasion may require to do their bidding Party spirit party lines party policy and party principles in times past have been prett:- tightly drawn and pretty well defined in this country but the new power we speak of has brushed then all away as easily ai if they were spiders' webs It has overborne them all and achieved success as it were at aeingle bound Philadelphia Times The nomination of Stanley Matthews to the CM ted States Supreme Court was simply one more step in the degradation of that tribunal which has been in protess since ts70 That he actually received a majority vote in the Senate on his confirmation even though it were only a majority of one is proof that a sort of moral dry-rot has taken hold of some of the public men of the country without consideration of party and that the old-fashioned idea of our highest judicial body has undergone a decided change for the worse To see Stanley Matthews don the robe and go upon the bench will be the saddest thing yet witnessed by those who have watched with pain the gradual degradation Of the bench 1V--- IUNDS' THREAT Be Will Retire from the Judiciary Committee ir Chandler la Confirmed —Nor Would Illael'eagh Ecnial R the Cabinet astlingtou swcial to the Mine Tim The sensation inSenatorial circles to-day was the speech of Senator Edmunds in the Republican caucus this morning The caucus was not very largely attended on account of the extreme heat of the day After the caucus adjourned Senators were very reticent about the proceedings or else said nothing of interest took place It was °thy at a late hour this evening that the Times correspondent learned the real facts of the case in spite of the seal of secrecy that has been put on everyone The original cause of the trouble was the consideration of the nomination of William E Chandler Hale LI Maine acting for Mr Blaine was vehenient in his demands that the Republican Senators should rally to the support of Chandler He pointed out the fact that the D mocratic Senators were nearly goiid against Mr ('handier He thought that this fact Ought to be enough to show the Republicans their line of action Then by insinuations Mr Hale made an A" 1s2o emzw eLa 1 swge -mor - M MEE alleging that it bad been biased in its oe-4 tion by a desire to gratify the personal spite of Mr Cookling This was not atated in so many words but the inference was obvious This sort of talk brought ont Senator Edmunds He electrified the caucus by stating that he for one would resign his seat from the Judiciary Committee if Chandler is confirmed The Senate had gone far enough in challenging the intezray of the actions of the committee If the Senate proposed to steadily ignore the advice of this committee for personal and partisan reasons it had better disband at once He bad his resignation ready and should Chandler be confirmed in the face of the report against him be would insist upon hie resignation being accepted Senator Edmunds then in his most bitter and sarcastic fashion reviewed CHANDLER'S POSITION AT THE CAPITAL No one recognizes him as a lawyer lie is a bold tinwropulous lobbyist—a man of ability bit notorious from his close relations with nearly every prominent job ever brought before Congress To put him in the high °film of Solicitor General would be in effect to piace the Department of Justice at the disposal of the most powerful rings in the country Charitable must be the man who would suppose that Williatu E Chandler would be in any too much baste to prosecute his former "clients" Mr Edsounda says that Chandler's nomination was also aa 'TWIT TO THE ATTORNEY UENERAL - who certainly would not remain in the Cabinet if be should be confirmed Quite 1 a number of people said the Vermont Senator are suppoted to be in danger of indictment if the present Attorney General remains in the Cabinet Perhaps for that reason there is so much anxiety in the lobby to get rid of hint Senator Edmunds then proceeded to speak of the ork of the Judiciary COMM! ttet It was a uoo-partisan committee Every member felt that it was the court of the Senate for the trial of everything relating to pnrely judicial que--tions in the Senate The committee was very jealous of its approval of judicial nomination& It wm the earnest desire of this committee to consider every nomination before it upon the basis of actual merit When such t man as ebandler was brought before it for the high and honorable position of Solicitor General it

part in furthering the nomination of Gen Hancock at Cincinnati says the whole amount ot money expended passed through hie bands and was paid by personal friends of Gen Hancock The whole number of contributors was less than a half dozen and the whole amount contributed was precisely $1250 Of this amount WO were expended for rent of headquarters two small parlors in a small hotel $100 were paid for 30000 badges absorbing nearly all the proper-sized and colored ribbon in Cincinnati making a corner in ribbon and $315 were paid for banners portraits printing placartiv and telegraphing The remainder stir' was left in tien Franklin's hands and was turned over by him to one of the Democratic Nationai committees during the campaign only one of the contrib utors was in political life and

Delirium and the English People Ignorant of it-- Booties Vain Appeal - The New York Everting Te legraut has the following front Liverpool: J K Emmet's unfortunate condition excites considerable discussion here For the first three or four days after his arrival at the Washington Temperance Hotel in'this city he kept hard at work in his roonts preparing for his reason at the Alexandra Theatre Then he becatue unsettled and began to drink to excess On Mohday last just before the performance in Wilk!) be was to open the season he was in a condition that made it very doubtful whether he could appear at all Mr Saker the lessee of the theatre and others in to get him Sobered suthciently to gj through the performance which he did matisfactoritly The next night he was missing aithough all the artilts of the company were waiting for him The management was in despair On Tuesday afternoon Mr McDougal the proprietor of the hotel vkited Emmet in his rooms and took with hint Mr R T 11toth and American temperance lecturer who was staying at the hotel prior to railing for New York They bad an affectionate interview and it was a pitiable sight to see the actor Booth urged upon him to reform and sign the pledge -I've done it thousands of times" whined the wretched Emmet He seemed to be in great trouble that his boy who had accompanied him before was not with hint this time and he was very revere on his wife for taking his son away All this time he was crying and throwing his arms about wildly Seeing that nothing could be done with hint Mr McDougal and Mr Booth withdrew On Wednesday he was worse having got more drink The manager of the house finding reasoning vain and ineffectual resolved to try a rise de guerre He sent a gouple of sturdy fellows to the hotel and by a subterfuge induced Emmet to accompany them in a cab to the Work-house Hospital where he was placed in one of the lunatic wards Here he received every attention front the surgeons who found him suffering from incipient delirium The public knew nothing about these facts as the theater people itaptyery close about the affair THIC PRIME MINISTER OF GREECE M Conmoundouros whose name and whose views so often crop up in dispatches from Athens has had a very remarkable career At the end of the last century his family were the Chiefs of Mania whose inhabitants had always preserved their freedom and independence Counioundouros betook himself to Athens to pursue his studies but be distinguished himself rather as a leader of his fellow pupils than by severe application While thus engaged the (4 etans broke out into revolt To Crete he went where he fought and was wounded He was conveyed to hia home and as soon as he was cured of his wounds he returned to Athena to continue his studies On their completion he settled in a provincial town and remained there until ta-56 when he W83 tient to Athens as a Peputy There he speedily made his capacity as a leader of men felt He was chosen President of the Chamber and a few days later become a Minister bince then helms been the acknowledged head of the party of action but it was not until 180 that- he took a leading part in foreign affairs Manv stories art told of his fearless courage Once an old soldier who had been dismissed from some small pose determined to kill him The would-be assassin waited for him at the door of the Ministry and on his appearance raised a loaded pistoaand pointed it at him Conmoundonros rushed forward snatched the pistol from he inane band and held him until thearrival of the guard Finding on inquiry that injustice had been none to the man he reinstated him a few days later in the post from which he had been dismissed Here is another story: When Otho had been expelled routuoundottros and his friends made prisoner Lootsakes the Colo-net of a regiment that wss acting against them A report reached the regiment that Leotsakes had been killed and they managed to seize on Couceoundou:ot in order to slay him Nothing dinnted Couniountiouros pretended to regard himself as their guest and so effectually did his courage aud eloquence stand hint in good need that he and his captors were 80011 engaged in tirinking toasts to their common country As a Minister histcheet fault is that he never knows bow to refuse anything to his friends and owing to this amiable weakness there are tarn about him who might do better away He is now about sixty years old and possesses a wonderful facility for work often resitting official documents and giving orders to half-tdozen subordinates at the Dame

inhabitant" writes to the Washington Post: The Weahington correspondent of a Cincinuati paper style "There is some agitation here to take the statue of Gen Jackson out of the square before the White House and put it in a less prominent situation It was the first equestrian statue in the United States and although It has mechanical meriot it is considerable of an eye-sore ritrouling before the house of the President as if it embodied the Executive taste of the Nation" This rumor if revived as stated is nothing new The Whigs in Fillmoras time moved heaven and earth to prevent its being put there It has been an eye-sore to the Republican party ever since they came into pawer and I can hardly blame them It can not be pleasant to have the Democratic patriot always frowning upon the Republican occupant of the White House whenever he looks toward tle Avenue No wonder they would like to have the statue removed but the job is too heavy for I them CULLMAN'S ANNIVERSARY The eighth anniversary of the settlement of the colony of Cullman Alabama will be held this week and extensive preparations have been made for the event Eight years ago the town of Cullman was a wildernes—it has now about 2000 people and the region all around is settled by industrious thrifty farmers They are mostly German and such has been the success of the pioneers that there are now almost daily additions to the settlement induced by the reports that have gone front the pleasant homes of the settlers They by no means devote their well-tilled lands exclusively to the great Southern staple or to grain They are growing small knits and vegetables with gratifying success And this is especially the case in regard to the grape Cullman is oue of the pioneers but a few years will doubtless witness the founding of many such colonies in the South where land is cheap and the soil exceedingly productive flow WE WIG CHAMPAGNE Washington Special to the Cincinnati Commercial A striking Instance of the unparalleled financial condition of the people of the United States is shown in the official reports of the French Government giving the value of champagne exported from France to the United States The consumption of chatnpaigne in America has steadily increased for the past three years but the increase of 1380 is remarkable showing the largest per cent of gain of any like period since this wine has been known to commerce In 1877 the value of this wine exported to the United States was $1293398 In 1878 and 18711 the amount was slightly in excess of this but in 1880 it jumped up to $2317593 These figures are suggestive as showing increased ability to purchase luxuries As a matter of fact every artiee of luxury upon the list of imports shows an increase in 1880 over any previous year So far as can be judged front this the American people are becoming what is called full-handed and are slinging their money around right royally w - THE "BLIZZARD" QUESTION SETTLED New York Evening rest As a reader of your newspaper I have been greatly amused by the various attempted explanations of the word 'blizzard" none of which approach in any degree the correct one No person living east of tbe Mississippi river can either define the word or describe or appreciate the thing iDelf In order to do so he must live upon a thousand mile prairie where the northwest wind has not less than five hundred miles of Clear run scoot and jump The word is original and undefiled Sissiton Sioux native to this soil and according to Alexander Demurs an old French and Indian half breed signifies 'limply and only "a h--1 of a time " I will add that no one acquainted with the genuine article ever doubted the correctness of that definition "Buzz en" MEMPHIS AS A "SUMMER RESORT" Memphi c Avalanche The
