Some of the scenes at the polls in
Maine are said to have been disgust;
ing in the extreme and the means used
to secure votes as disgraceful as they
were disgusting. There were women
at the polls in Augusta, and the World
Some responses made to solicitations
of the women were rude and insulting.
One man who was quite drunk swore
that he could never be -ruled by a. lot of
petticoats, and then said he would be
d- d if he would ever take a ballot
from a woman. The poor women look
ed terribly dissatisfied. One of them
sat down, saying she was discouraged.
Notwithstanding the existence of a
strict prohibitory law in this city beer
and whiskey were freely given at a
common hotel near by. The Republi
can women worked for prohibition at
the polls, while the Republican men
made their dupes drunk before march
ing them in like cattle to cast a free
ballot. There was little concealment
about the purchase . of voters. The
prices paid "or received were freely dis
cussed. Bottles of whiskey were car
ried in coat pockets and handed from
one man to another with many a
drunken grin and grimace.
Jost exactly what the Republican
majority in Maine will prove to be is
as yet difficult to determine, judging
from the reports thus far published
here. Probably the figures given by us

A Bad Couple.
About 4 o'clock yesterday - afternoon
officer Chadwick came to police head
quarters with two colored men in his
charge, one of whom accused the other
of committing a murder. Mayor Hall
investigated the matter, when it ap
peared they they had joined company
while walking on the railroad track
and kept together until they reached

Monday night They gavo their names
a Lewis . Wilkins aud John Henry
Williams. Tho former claimed to hava
been a former resident of this oily,
while the latter bailedfrom Pitt county.
After arriving Wilkins found a place in
which his con pan ion could sleep,
and managed by some very smooth
talk to get possession of Williams'
money and a valise coutaiuing clothing
and other articles, giving him iu return
what he claimed was a "ioadstone"
which possessed supernatural powers
that would enable him to go where
ever he pleased without any difficuly.
Like a silly gudgeon, Williams swal

to remain where he was until the form

committed a murder in Pitt county.
The fact was revealed during the in
vestigation that Wilkins had disposed
of the property, but the articles were
all recovered and fully identified by
Williams, the latter having minutely
described them before they were ex
posed to view. The testimony was so
conclusive Ithat Wilkins was required
to give a bond in the sum of $50 for his
appearance at the next term of the
Criminal Court, in default of which be
While the papers were being made
out committing Wilkins to jail, he made
use of certain expressions regarding
Williams which justified the detention
of the latter until the matter could be
further investigated. With this in
view Justice Hill went to the jail and
took tho affidavit of Wilkins, in which
the latter declaed that Williams had
voluntarily confessed that he had killed
a man in Pitt couny, named Moses
Berry, by knocking him in -the head
with an axe, in consequence ot which
Williams was sent to jail for safekeep
ing until the authorities of Pitt could be
communicated with. While on the
way to the jail Williams voluntarily
told the officers who had him in charge
that he killed a man in Pitt about ten
days ago. He sailed under quite a
number of aliases and told many dif
ferent stories regarding himself. Irving
Davis aud Irving Long were among bis
numerous names, the latter of which is
thought to be the correct one.

New Yokk, Sept. 8th, 1881.
Hon. E. D. Hall Dear Sir. Your
fayor of the 1st inst. was duly leceived
and I take more pleasure in replying at
this date than I would have felt two
weeks ago. To-day there is a certainty
ot the State being carried by
Cleveland; ; two weeks ago
there were graye doubts, owing to tbc
dissatisfaction of local branches of the
Democracy, especially Tammany Hall.
Two weeks ago nets were freely made
against Cleveland carrying New York.
To-day the bets are reversed. Every
thing points to Cleveland as our next
President of the Un ted States. I be
lieve, candidlv. that he will be as much
a tidal wave President as he was a
"tidal wave" Governor. Hoping you
are well, believe me to be.
Yours, very respectfully,

bnsily employed yesterday in preparing
for the Lawn party, on the corner of
Dock and Third streets, giyen by the
ladies of St. Thomas' 'Catholic Church
last night, and when the hour for as
sembling had arrived the : grounds
presented an aimoit enchanting ap
pearance. The beauty of the scene
was heightened by the presence of the
many guests,-who. as they sauntered
about or gathered in groups, reminded
one of some fairy, tale. Refreshments
were there in plenty; tho music was
good; the dancing, which was kept up
until a late hour, was graceful and
the hours glided ! by on rapid
wings. The great feature of the
occasion, however, and one in which
there was a lively interest, was center

gold headed cane which was to be : pre

Tbc doctor was not preseat ai the
time and there is no doubt that hef was
agreeably surprised when the returns
were all in and the vote3 bad been
counted to find that ho was the lucky
