The total loss of the heavily armored Brazilian monitor Solimoes, arid the drowning of a crew of one hundred and twenty-three men, is another illustration of the worthies nes of a seagoing vessel without compartments when she encounters disaster below the water line. A flood of waters, accompanied by death and disaster, is the dreadful. mid-Mar visitation throughout the great Central States, while a flood of semi-tropical sunshine, hastening the maturity of fruit and th ripening of grain and forerunning a plentiful .tarvest, has been the custom arv lot of California. The change in the temperature within the past two days has relieved the Sacramento valley of In-" regular spring scare of an overflow. "With a few days' cool weather, the river will faU as rapidly as its waters rose under the influence of the hot spell last week, which t brought the melung snows down the valley with a rush. Tin Los Angeles Erprtti advocates toe abolition ol garden fences as a mean- of enhancing the beauty and attractiveness of that city. Unquestionably, the moat attractive residence quarters in tiarund are where the "no fence" idea naii. oeen pat into most general operation. There the green lawns extend from house to sidewalk, and the public gee in to reciprocate the coaSJeuc reposed in them by the owners by voluntarily respecting the privacy oi grounds thus exposed quite as stricty as they are forced to do the privacy of grounds protected by a fern-. . Thb peaceable conquest of the Holy Land seems to be on the .eve of accom- strutted now from the shores of the "Mediterranean to the city of Jerusalem, and a cunceeaion Las been obtained from the Turkish Government for the construction of another railroad from the bay of , Acre, the last stronghold in Palestine of the Crusaders, to the ancient city of Damascus. The route for the latter road lies along the eastern slope of Mount Cannes, past Nazareth to he river Jordan, thence skirting the astern shore ot the Sea of Galilee and across the plains to the Syrian canital. Damascus will, however, be a tempYrr terminus only, as it is intended ujjii-xnately to carry the road to the Persian gulf. This will open a new and quicker route to India than is now afforded by . the Buss canal. , 14 165 I Seeoad aad Talrd Term The Columbus, O., Dispatch publishes a letter from General Grant to Koscoe Conkling disapproving a proposed nomination for a third term. It purports to have been written in May, 1830, revert months after Grant's return from his memorable two years' tour around the world. It is the first evidence that bas ever been offered that Grant was averse to a third term, to secure to him a nomination for v hich Roscoe Conkling, at the 'heid jf the "old guard," made the greatest fight of his political life soon afterward at the Chicago National Republican Convention. It does not appear how such an important political document, if-genuine, has been kept in concealment all these years. IJat it publication at this late date twelve years after it is alleged to have been written and on the eve, as it were, of the Domination of candidates for the Presidency, coupled with the expressed opp -eition contained in it to frcwid term nominations, raises stroug doubts as 'o its genuineness, and excites a reatonalle suspicion that it has some sinister de-ign on the candidacy of both Harrison and Cleveland, each of whom is an aspirant for a second term. The suspicion cf its fraudulent nature is still further strengthened by the thrust - at Blaine contained in the allusion to the ! personal differences that existed between him and Conkling. It look too much like an attempt to revive the so-called "stalwart opposition to Blaine which the removal of Conkling, Arthur and others by death an i the healing infln-1 ences of time have eradicated. This is the season for killing off as well as for making Presidential candidates. It ma be stated, however, as a historical fact, that popular sentiment, eince Washington eetahlished the prece-deni,'has beta opposed to a thir J term. Therenever was a time in the history of the Ration since Washington's retirement when there was any real danger of a third term precedent being established. It came nearer being accomplished through Grant than through any other of the Presidents. But that hero's great personal popularity was not strong enough to mflueLce his party to risk the experiment of a third term nomination. The opposition to a third term at the White House does not appear at any time in the history oi the Government to have applied to a second term where there was a manifest fitness in the candidate . for the high honor. Of the twenty-three Presidents who have cixupied the White House sirce 1 7b9 eix of them have served two full terms, namely, Washington. Jefferson, Madieon, Monroe, Jackson and Grant. Lincoln was also elected to a recond term, but had served leas than six weeks ol it when he wa assassin -ated. Nearly oti-thud of the number of the men who have held the, executive office have, therefore, been-second term Presidents. Of the sixteen one term Presidents, three of them died before the expiration of their term of office, so thit their f tress for a se-ond term can didacy was never susceptible of a test. These were William Henry Harrison, grandfather of the present incumbent, who died one month after his inauguration; Zach Taylor, who lived to serve only one year, and James A.- Garfield, who fell a victim of the assassin Guiteau, six months after the assumption of the office. The state of public sentiment toward these second term Presidents is very clearly expressed in the electoral vote. At his first election Washington received eixty-nine of the eeventy-three electoral votes represented in the electoral college, three of the States New York, North Carolina and Khoda Island failing to vote ; the former because it had no electoral law, and the latter two because they had not adopted the Federal Constitution. As there were four vacan cies in the college, Washington received a unanimous vote. In 1732 the college consisted of 135 votes, but there were three vacancies. Washington again received a unanimous vote. In the electoral college of 1800 Jefferson and Burr were tied and the election was thrown into the House of Representatives, which elected Jefferson. For his 6econd term, ia 1S04, he received 162 ut of a possible 176 votes. Madison got at his first election, in 180S, 122 votes out of the 175 represented in the Col ege, and in 1812 he got li'8 out of a possible 218. Monroe received 133 out of 217 votes in the electoral college of 1816 and 231 out of the 232 votes in the electoral college' of 1820. At his first election in 1828 Jackson got 178 out of the 261 votes present In the electoral college, and at his second election 219 out of 286 votes present Lincoln's first election was secured in a college consisting of 303 votes by a vote of U& in his favor, and his second election by a vote of 212 votes out of the 233 pn sent in the electoral collegeor within a small fraction of two thirds the possible representation in the college had the States then in rebellion voted. The reconstructed Union gave Grant 214 votes of the 317 in J the electoral college on the -occasion of his first election, and in 1872 he received 2S6 out of the 366 votes in the college. In the record of Presidential elections, np to and including Grant, there is only one instance of a failure of a President receiving his party, nomination for a second term and failing of election. That solitary instance was John Quincy Adams. But Quincy Adams' election to the Presidency in the first instance, was not secured by tht popular vote or by the vote of the electoral college, but by the vote of tba House, into which the HiVhest of all in Lczvcoinsr Power. Latest U. S. Gov't Report Li J32f222f election was thrown, owing to Jackson's failure to obtain more than a plurality of the votes cast in the college. And aiter Grant's time there Las been bet one instance of a President obtaining a party nomination and tailing of reelection, namely, Grover Cleveland. At his first election, he was apparently the pocuLiX choice, receiving a majority of the votes cast in the electoral 'college, and in that respect he differed from Quincy Adams, who was not in any sense the popular choice for President. Cleveland, therefore; stands aione in the line of Presidents as the only one of them., who being once chosen by the people, was denied re-election after receiving his party nomination.
