New , nov. 9.�?there is a deep seated feeling of alarm among the business men and police officials of new York Over the existing bad feeling caused by the Rej Bucan National committee and the Tribune persisting in the claim of blame s election in this state. The newspapers have been asked to keep the matter quiet and have agreed to do so and police and militia circles Are using every Endeavor to Calm the pubic mind by ridiculing All thoughts of coming trouble. The fact remains that tie armoires in this City and Brooklyn were placed under guard last night and the greatest vigilance is maintained despite the laughing remark of the officers that Quot the Boj s Are drilling that a if this Olli Cial Canso using Board out Cleveland on tuesday next there can be to doubt of what will follow in this cite if in do other place.

A gentleman closely connected with Tav Gould s Western Union interests said to the of ail news a correspondent tonight Quot Vve understand the a a trained condition of affairs and consider it serious. Or. Gould is fully a Ware of the state of pub lie feeling and is prepared to take car of himself disastrous boiler explosion. New oki.e.\ns, nov. 7. boiler explosion at Mead s sugar House was More terrible than at first reported. The killed Are e. Eden Engineer Vav. Booker John Jones Henry Nash Joseppi Richards Paul Richards Lames , William Wilson Henry Marcel in. Coloured. The two Are boys aged twelve and thirteen. The wounded Are August rant/., Oscar haul e. Rantz Lohn Fricke dangerously Scal Deti Lohn de land John my Guido slightly. The boiler was bought second hand Twenty years ago. It had no water at the time and cold water being let in it exploded flying through the roof of the sugar House a distance of 250 Yards into the canal. The Engineer was thrown 200 Yards Landing on a Wood Pilc ten feet High. He was the Only one killed instantly. The others lived several hours. Many years in Washington while he occupied positions of Honor and fans and finally became an inmate of the White House itself and the head of the nation. Daring his administration mrs. Polk was his prime minister in everything in counsel and was such a help get As was fitted to stand by the Side of the first Man in the nation. It was her custom to daily read the newspapers interesting herself in All matters pertaining to National Aira is and such articles As she Felt that her husband should note personally Quot she marked for his perusal in this Way keeping up with All the political issues of the Day and uniting herself to her husband by All the ties of congeniality which a Loving Noble and intelligent woman could form for herself. Mrs. James k. Polk passed her eighty first birthday in september last and still has left to her that mental vigor we iii has always characterized her. In health she is somewhat feeble though she occupied her Pew yesterday in the first presbyterian Church i of this City of which shit is a Mera i her and United with the congregation in the communion of the lord s sap i per. To see her one Woald declare her in perfect health and the probabilities Are that her Days will yet be Long. She has a horror to be interviewed though she will always talk readily to your correspondent whenever asked to discuss any important questions of the Day. She entered her handsomely furnished parlor with a firm step when your correspond in called on her that refuted her fourscore years and sex tended her hand in a heart greeting that told of the warm cordiality that won her j friends in the White House and wherever she is known. 1 in answer to a question relative to the or. Lushington and messes. Eau and Stuart from Jay Ore joined our Camp with the Hope of getting a Chance at this brute and the maharajah of Viziana Grum with Hia usual Public spirit has Lent me some Shikar elephants but the Hopes of finding a Tiger in such an immense area of Forest Are very dim indeed and i am afraid co Good will come of our Effort Quot. There in Stone Chance that this particular Tiger of this neighbourhood was killed by one Ottlie constables who got a shot at him when he was carrying of his Comrade As i Hava mentioned above. But North and West of us stories of ravages continue to come in and a Tiger killed a Man at Gaug Araz Margole within the last four Days. We have been in consultation As to what is to be done in this dreadful position of affairs and we Are unanimously of opinion i hat the Only thing to do is to Supply certain villages with police carbines and ammunition and Endeavor to persuade the villagers to attempt to kill these beasts themselves giving the usual Reward of Ico rupes for an Ordinary Tiger and a special Reward of 200 rupes for the Well established death of a Man Oater. I have inquired of a few villagers who Tell me that their guns Are no Good being match locks that they have no guns that their guns were lost in the Plouri. I therefore think it Likely that this unprecedented human Slaughter May arise from an unusual dearth of fire arms in the country. It is Clear to me that if something is not done to Stop these ravages the Countryside will be gradually depopulated. I should say that at least six villages have been abandoned quite recently from this cause and this Means that lands in Faye fallen out of cultivation that the people try to live Oil j Angle produce and fail political excitement now and that of the ing that go of Quot to the Plains As labourers. It american people he can not do that again in 1884, and it we know Grover Cleveland the Wolf will find Mere than Ita match in strength and determination. It is the official returns of the ballots of the people of new York honestly coated and it is not Jay Gould and his Western t Nion Telegraph company that Are to determine the electoral vote of this state. We believe that those returns if honestly counted show that a majority of the Pooe have voted for Cleveland and Hendricks. We also believe that Gould and Are conspiring to cheat the count. Our counsel is for peaceful methods and careful abstinence from any others till the last extremity. But if the Republican National committee s Call for Quot resistance Quot is meant to incite republicans to resort to violent Means to defend frauds on the pretext of preventing them upon the Heads of Eakins and his fellow members of that committee rests the responsibility for the stirring up of any violence that May ensue. The people of the United states have been cheated once by the Republican party in a presidential count and have submitted when the cheat waa ratified by arbitration. La the 55,000,000 inhabitants of this country there Are not 55,000, if they can read and write who to Day do not feel in their hearts that from March 1.s77, to March 1881, th9 two men who exercised the offices of president and vice president never were elected to them fairly. There will be no arbitration this time nor any submission. The new manager. Alrh. Lyman s Case. Montin.ai., nov. 6.-mrs. Lyman has made another pathetic Appeal by letter to her Benefactor. Or.

Looking face and was turning her Eves toward the ceiling with a gushing look that was supposed to give h.9r the air of an to Tress. You would be astonished Quot continued the photographer after he had disposed of the tragic looking bid a Quot to see How Many absolutely ugly looking people come to have their pictures taken and to find As i do that none of them appreciate the oct that they Are not beauties. I am certain that All people think they Are much better looking than they really Are but the exaggeration with some is greater than with others. All Are invariably astonished when they see themselves As others see them and to find out How they have been deceived As to their own looks. Titis causes us photographers a great Deal of trouble. No matter How perfect and True to life the likeness May be the moment it is handed to the object for the first inspection it is sure not to come up to his expectations and tha result is he finds fault and demands another trial. We always cheerfully sit people time after time although we know the first likeness was As near perfect As human Art could make it. It would never do to insist that the picture was True to life for such a claim would wound the vanity of our customers. The result is we Are compelled to make flattering likenesses to bring the pictures up to what the conceit of the original has made him believe he really is. No matter How revolting this practice May be to me As an artist i must either resort to it or lose my customers for they will go where they can get the most flattering Quot who Are the most difficult to please the men or the women Quot Quot the women always. A Man May be shocked to see that he is not As handsome As his flattering looking Glass had depicted him but he almost always has sense enough to accept the discovery and not insist on having the artist do for him what nature has neglected to do. Bat the ladies How indignant they look when a Good likeness is shown them. Don t suit they say. Why of the general effect is bad and the expression does not suit me i have Given ladies As High As eight or ten sittings when the first picture was the Only True one. They will come Day after Day and find fault although their friends Tell them the pictures Are True to life. Give me a business Man for a satisfactory customer. He generally walks in with his hair just Ashe finds upon leaving his place of business and without a glance at the dressing room or a looking Glass he takes his seat leaves his Orler and does not even ask to see the proof. Such a Man generally gets a Good picture 11 is the anxious nervous Nian or woman who tries to look better than nature intended who gets a stiff unnatural picture that looks As though the subject had an expression for the occasion. These people instead of sitting easily and Meas redly have a still Way of sitting in the chair and their eyes have a fixed strained stare. Such people can never Hope to have a Good likeness at this moment a Young Man with the unmistakable appearance of a Tough entered. His hat was on the Bank of his head and carefully placed to show a sleek oily curl that came Down Over his right Eye. His pants were Cut with an enormous Spring at the Bottom and Bis coat was not Only bc�a4 with braid an Inch wide but his pockets both on his coat and Vest were loaded Down with binding of the same material. In ans wer to the artist s polite query As to his wants he said Quot i want my picture took from head to after looking at the proof to see that his Spring Bottom pants and tallow Candle curl had not been lift out he withdrew with a self satisfied swagger. The next subject was a baby which struggled against Quot Bavin its picture took Quot for a half hour and succumbed to the diverting influences of a jumping Jack with a music Box attachment. Quot i am often compelled to use that jumping pack for grown people Quot said the artist As the Mother and child retired.

We have More than we can do for a few weeks preceding the As the reporter was taking his leave a Carriage stopped in front of the establishment and a Young lady in full bridal stepped out. Quot Here is tedious employment for the rest of the Day said the artist. Quot anything but a Bride. You san t get anything that looks Lovely enough for them and their proud mothers generally stand Over the operator and Tell him what to do and How to do forty years ago. Canvass which preceded or. I Olk s election she said Quot to Many years have elapsed since that important event that the facts have almost faded from my memory and then too being the wife of one of the parties most interested the excitement was kept car away from me. You Are Awa re at that time our Home was in Columbia tenn., a Small Village and a had no railroads and no Telegraph system Quot Quot bit Wirs the questions then agitated do you now remember Quot Quot of yes the question then As now was largely about the Tariff. In particular the two canvasses forty Yeara apart Are very similar. Then another Point of similarity i remember was that without the vote of new York or. Polk could not have been elected and we were naturally very anxious to hear from that state. The ticket was Polk and Dallas and the Battle cry was Polk Dallas and Texas Quot Quot Texas Quot Quot yes the acquisition of Texas was another Issue of the canvass. Is not Only the absolute danger of life that we have to think about but likewise the disastrous stopping of All agricultural operations. It is horrible to contemplate the feel i Ings of a poor labourer going out for his Day s work to a Field a few Hundred Yards from his House with the knowledge about Quot aim that there is an even Chance of his being carried away from the Side of his plow or that his wife May be seized when she is bringing him his midday meal. Yet this is and must be the attitude of mind of every Man in this country who pursues the usually peaceful vocation of the were some opposed to it there is always somebody opposed to everything. There was never another canvass save perhaps that immediately preceding the War that equated it in Quot was there More excitement than at the present time Quot Quot Well All the information i have of the present canvass is what i glean from the newspapers and from what my friends Tell me and i judge that the feeling now is As a Calm May morning to the turbulent restless storm of excitement in those Days. Every District had its political military company of organized troops which if seen now would alarm the people to the very verge of madness. Since the candidacy of or. Bach Anan the canvass has always Veen too on sided to create any excite ment except when or. Tilden and or. Hendricks were candidates and Perli aps now. Quot you see my increasing age has toned Down my ardor in such matters though i always take an interest a deep interest in state and National affairs. I new York to c.\nrikd. Quot even then it was necessary to the successor the ticket to carry new York. Pennsyl i Vania was secured by the nomination of or. I George m. Dallas for vice i resident. And he carried his own state. I regard the Acquini Tion of Texas and the re titles following the i mexican War that is the adding of Call i fornia and new Mexico in the territory of i the United states As among the most important events in the history of this coat try Aad that fact is becoming More and More apparent. The country was advanced by these acquisitions and has Ever since i reaped Benefit from j Quot waa the Tariff the leading question in j that canvass Quot Quot that was one of the questions a Tariff for Revenue Only was what the democrats de i sired while the whigs contended that the higher the Tariff the cheaper the goods. An a other question was concerning United states. Banks which it was desired to dispense with i in favor of state Banks Quot i Quot flow did or. Polk receive the news of his election Quot Quot there being neither Railroad nor Tele i graph naturally the news was not flashed to i us nor known All Over the Union As soon As would now be the Case. The news was received Here at Nashville at night and a party of friends took baggies and drove to coh Imbia a distance of forty Miles and arrived there about 2 o clock in the morning. Or. Polk was at Home when he received the intelligence and there was afterwards a grand demonstration of course not at that hour As it was so late Quot Quot Billy the record Quot now then Reddy Mcginty Kape in the line or i la be after kicking the red White and Blue Stu iii out of Yez.

They Are obliged to gather in Large parties to go 1 o Market villages Are deserted cultivation is pursued under the great Dif Lickly and ill constant trepidation. This morning 1 was shown a deserted Village i abandoned on account of the Tiger horror. A recently a a i and his wife were blowing a Field near this abandoned Village when a Tiger attacked the Man in the Middle of the Day.

On the same Road i was shown two Sipots where the Tiger earned old two men in one Day. ? yesterday i was shown a place where a Tiger sprang upon a Constable knocked him Down and mauled Bim so several that he died the next Day.

Paid far yer place did Yez an what if Yez did that s no reason for Yez to hate Jonnie Baxter is it Quot he Lieh went up to the window to Settle another dispute and the reporter turned to a Small boy for further information. Quot of he makes about or is a week at this Job when there s anything going on that Sells the papers and he Only works at it tor two or three hours. In the morning he Sells papers himself. Why is he called the scrapper Why cause he s so fond of scrapping of course. The admiring youngster then proceeded to Tell How the scrapper had fought scores of ambitions Young pugilist from the rank of the newsboys and Boot lacks and had come out first in every encounter. Quot of he s a Dandy i Tell you and he fights As fair As they make pm Quot was the High Praise with which the scrapper s Little admirer wound up his account of the hero s doings. For Over a year or. Herrity has been keeping order and protecting the Smau Fry from imposition and the bullying of the larger boys and he has come to be regarded As judge and jury in All the a squabbles that take place among the horde of boys that gather about the neighbourhood mentioned. He takes great Pride in his fairness. The payment of a cent while it entitles a boy to be carefully looked after for the Day does not allow him to take any liberties with the boys who have not paid and any movement of that sort is promptly stopped by the scrapper s warning voice or muscular arms. Is or. Jay Gould a satisfactory representative of the Republican party Boston advertiser nov. 7. The Way in what Are called the interests of the Republican party have been taken care of for the last two Days will no doubt fix the attention of a Good Many of those republicans who gave their support to Flor. Blaine. For the time being the great representative of the party is or. Jay Gould. Or Eakins in the acting manager of Couise and for a time or. Secretary Chandler has appeared upon the Sceno. Objection could be raised to either of these persons As Active agents of a party which stands for moral ideas and an honest ballot without implying that the objector is particularly squeamish or Quot finicky Quot to use the word of a visiting orator the other Day in Faneuil Hall. But the open appearance of or. Jay Gould to give the inspiration and to fix the Standard of proper action at a most critical moment passes everything that has yet happened. We have several times expressed our distrust of the present management of the Republican party. Here is a Concrete Case the embodiment of the new management in a single person and in the most conspicuous manner possible which we Pray our friends to consider Well. We shall not take up the charges of fraudulent practices which have been Rife for the last two Days but shall Content ourselves with inquiring whether gentle atm who have stood by the party nominations this year think on the whole that or. Jay Gould is a satisfactory or even a reputable representative of the interests of a party which assumes to be in a Peculiar sense Tho guardian of Public morals. Or. Gould is a great Power As a railway monopolist and May be supposed to have important views As to the railway management though he is generally credited with More particular Devotion to the manipulation of the Quot Gould stocks Quot in the Market but has anybody Ever heard that or. Gould had any such interest in Public affairs that he should be the natural person to take the Helm for a great party in Straits he did indeed have some interest of that sort for a moment i fifteen years ago but that was when he was i preparing for the Gold speculations which i terminated on Quot Black Friday Quot and we do i not Rem Siber that he has since attracted at Tention As a political student or Amateur statesman. Or. Goal is known to have a special in Terest in the election of or. Blaine an in i Terest which was once hinted at in some memorable phrases by or. Edmands and was proved by substantial evidence at the Delmonico banquet. But does that make him a satisfactory exponent protector and i Pilot for the Republican party it is to be use surged that he is thus satisfactory for the candidate but does the candidate now own the party so that he can intr Asl its Good name As Well As his individual fortunes to f whatever control he chooses or Feals bound i to accept. The men of business the cooler part of a the Community those who thrive otherwise than by the Trade of politics realize that the present is a grave crisis. It is a time i when the interests of both candidates and of both parties May justifiably be watched for jealously and when the coolest the most honorable Quot and especially the most respected i party representatives should Havo the guidance of affairs on each Side. Are the interests of the Republican party in such hands at this moment is there one intelligent Republican who does not feel in his soul that or. Gould s intervention this week necessarily throws doubt upon tie fairness and honesty of the Steps taken is there one who does not say to himself that this presence from Wall Street Means some sort of connection Between Stock gambling and politics and is there one who does not j feel that this also Means an enormous in j crease of the temptation to Quot crookedness Quot which the Hope of political Success by itself i offers in plenty j it was not by such hands that the re pub j lican party was piloted through the Stormy scenes in which it won its Fame. And we do not believe that its management by such hands is now witnessed by the mass even of these republicans who followed or. Blaine j without a sense of shame. Or. Merritt s Arm Quot i want you to Tell me the truth. I have a big amount of Money on Blaine nearly every Dollar i own. Now do Yon honestly believe he is elected Quot Quot i have no doubt Quot was the reply Quot that he has carried this state and is Quot do you think he has carried Quot yes Indiana and new York Quot Quot then what is the meaning of John c. New s dispatch in the Tribune conceding Indiana to the democrats Quot "1 am surprised that the Tribune published it Quot or. Merritt said Dol fully. At that moment an extra edition of Cyrus w. Field s Blaine Organ was brought Oil the platform the headlines practically conceding Cieve Jand s election and announcing Jay Gould s Telegram of congratulation to governor Cleveland. Or. Merritt had nothing to say. A new arrival then Drew from his pocket a copy of the noon associated press bulletin which recited a rigmarole about Mountain districts and mail returns from which the conclusion was announced that Quot this confirms the first press report of to Day that if the associated press reports Are Correct and the returns to the county clerks incorrect Blaine has a plurality of 1,000 in the state of new Quot Well Quot said or. Merritt Quot the districts yet to be reported gave Garfield a plurality of 4,000. We have no reason yet to fear the the bystanders gave no sign of believing any such professions. The Gould dispatch and the weakening of the associated press were arguments not to be surmounted by bluster and there was no disposition in the crowd strongly partisan As it was to second the committee s efforts at Bluff. Quot counting oaf in new York. New York times j while the Western Union company was in use yesterday to fabricate monstrous untruths which it pretended merely to transmit Many people were talking of the Tiance that the vote of new York might not be counted As it had been cast. There is no danger of this result. A discount could Only happen under the Laws of new York if there were any election District in which there was no minority and therefore no representative of the minority to watch the count or if that representative had been bribed to acquiesce in a false count. The Law provides for an inspector of elections on the part of the minority in every election District of the state and such a representative was As a matter of fact present in every election District of the state on tuesday night. The inspectors Are not permitted to it pass upon the Legal sufficiency of the ballots dropped in their boxes. They Are to Forward a specimen of each kind of ballot used with their return to the supervisors of the county. A record is kept of the announcement of the count in every election District and As the function of the supervisors to whom the reports Are made is simply to add the totals of election districts any discrepancy Between the vote As announced by the supervisors and the sum of the District totals would be detected and exposed at once and would subject the supervisors to severe punishment. No doubt upon proof of the discrepancy a court would Issue a mandamus to the supervisors to make a recount on arithmetical principles and not upon partisan sentiments. The functions of the state Board of canvassers Are also ministerial. Their duty a simply to add up the county totals. Of course any failure Here would be visible to the whole state. A question As to the formal sufi science of the ballots May be raised by the protest of any member of the state Board which is filed with the return made by his associates. The whole business of counting votes is done in the Daylight from the first step to the last. Election frauds in this state have been generally confined to this City and to cases in which the inspector appointed on behalf the minority has been in collusion with his associates. There is absolutely no fear thac the vote of the Rural districts will not be counted As it is cast. Thanksgiving. The governer of new York has issues tie follow sub proclamation of thanksgiving. A any n. Y., nov. S. following was issued to Day Quot state of Kew York proclamation of Grover Cleveland governor.

New York the Republican party cling ii to the Power which the people have voted that it shall Lay Down. There is a conspiracy to steal the presidency and a ice presidency of the United states again for candidates whom he people have rejected. Eight years ago the robbery was done in Florida Louisiana and South Carolina. To Day it is attempted in new York. Audacity is the Republican policy now a it was in list i. Zachariah Chandler is dead but Stephen b. Eakins and Jay Gould survive. They Are the chief conspirators Eakins inspiring the Republic air National committee Gould controlling the Western Union Telegraph company. During the last two Days Gould by false reports of election figures through his Telegraph agencies has been executing his share of the plot by preparing Republican partisans for a fraudulent claim that the vote of new York has been cast for Blaine and Logan. Yesterday afternoon when Gould s work had been going on for Twenty four hours it became Ripe for Eakins and the Republican National committee which Eakins owns us absolutely As any gang of negroes Ever was owned in the slave trading times issued a proclamation advancing the plot to its second stage. This proclamation claims Indiana As Well As new York for Blaine and Logan Ayers As to new York that there a Quot no ground for doubt Quot of the claim impudently imputes an intention of fraud to governor Cleveland and the returning officers and summons the people to it is the old fable of the Wolf and the Lamb and the turbid water.
