PRESIDENTIAL SPECULATIONS .1 CARD FROM
Vice-President Hendrickst is not fr.ee
from errors of judgment, one of the last
at -which is' the publication of the fol
lowing cafdi -K rT J
Indianapolis, March SI,1 1879 To
, Esq. My Dear Sir; 1 have your
favor of the 28th, asking whether there
is any foundation for th$ statement
contained in the newspaper slip which
you inclosed, to the effect that I have
written to members of the Democratic
party favoring the renomination of the
ticket of 1876 for 1880. 1 am surprised
to see such a statement. It , is without
any foundation in truth. T have writ
ten no such letter, and have in no form
expressed any such view. I did not, as
is known, desire the nomination in 1876
as a candidate for the vice-presidency,
and do not think it would, in any con
tingency, be my duty again to accept a
nomination for a position which I do
not desire, Very respectfully,
T. A. Hendricks.
The Louisville Courier-Journal, a
warm friend of Mr. Hendricks, evident
ly believes that . u faithful are the
wounds of a friend," and henceit again
admonishes Mr. Hendricks, saying to
him what follows:
Governor Hendricks commits, and
continues to' commit, the folly of rush
ing into print. As ma,ttei3 stand, he
has the public confidence and respect
If he does not look to it, he will fall
into a certain disrepute, which no man,
Tli,e Philadelphia Times likewise says :
l,f Governor Hendricks should suc
ceed in making people believe, that he
wouldn't take the second pl,ace on. any
presidential ticket he might be lost to
public, view for the future,
Arwi again in a leading editorhthe
It Ja not by any means certain that
he'will be placed in a like position in
1880, but if there should be an over
whelming sentiment in the convention
in favor of the old ticket, Governor
Hendricks would be no more at liberty
to decline then than he was in 1876.
His State is one of the States that must'
be carried in a close contest to give any
promise of Democratic success, and
Governor Tilden's Stpte is the. other
great battle-ground in tlie North.
While it is possible far a Democratic
President to.' have enough electoral
Voesi to spare either New York or In
diana, it is not within the range of
ossibility for the Democratic ticket to
be elected if either of those States
should vote for the Republican candi
dates. The tide that would make both
New York and Indiana Democratic
would be likely to carry with it New
Jersey, Connecticut and Oregon and
make Ohio, Wisconsin, Nevada and
California debatable; but a: tide that
would carry either New jYork or
Indiana from the Democratic column,
wouldn't leave any of the contested
States within range of Democratic suc
cess. If Tilden shall redeem New
York to the Democracy next fall, and
command the vote of his State in the
convention with anything like unani
mity, his renomination will be as
certain as anything in the future, and
Hendricks will be compelled to accept
the second place ; but if New York
shall be lost in November. Tilden will
not be in the race in 18S0.
This is exactly the way it looks now,
and the mistake of Mr. Hendricks in
repeatedly urging his claims to the first
place on the ticket, and as repeatedly
declaring that he will not accept the
second place, is only equalled by the
mistake made by some of our excellent
D3mocratic contemporaries in declar
ing that they cannot with any grace
accept Mr. Tilden as the. Democratic
presidential nominee in 1880. ' Present
indications point very strongly-to his
nomination and present utterances
prejudicial to his case may prove very
embarrassing at a future time,
Some time since, B. II. Rrown
manager of the Western Union Tele
graph office at St. Louis, was im
prisoned for declining to produce in
evidence certain telegrams in his pos
session, and the Court of Appeals has
Just now refused an application for a
writ of habeas corpus in his case, there
by deciding against the inviolability of
telegrams. This means that while a
letter is a private document a telegram
is not. The case will go to the Supreme
Court of the State.
What to Do. The Lynchburg
News, which is level-headed upon all
matters, has about "the rights" of this
deadlock business at Washington.
"Let Congress adjourn at ;once," it
says, "and let trifling with thjs. hypo
critical usurper and chaffering with
his hirelings and masters end. We
have the purse and the people, he has
the patronage and the sword. We can
save our money if we cannot 1 have our
The gtapljip.and entertaining report
in our telegraphic columns in reference
t3 the state 'of affairs in St Petersburg,
indicates that the situation there is
critical and alarming. The letter reads
like a novel depicting the reign of ter
ror in France and if half that, is told be
true the Czar must "set him sure."
The government advertises for the
letting, on the . loth of July 1 next, of
L274 postal routes in different States of
Union, service to commence a the first
day of October. " Among" these are 45
new routes in North Carolina, and our
P03tal facilities in this State will, after
the date given, be increased by so much.

in our chambers in the evening; for
how are we going to get such certificates
and attestation after 'that hour? It
will not be necessary to light a candle
before half past nine o'clock and yet at
nine o'clock, just as in the barracks,
every light must be put out.
"The measures are certainly stringent,
but at the same time the insecurity of
St. Petersburg is daily on the increase.
Every day we hear of grenades explod
ed in the streets. Happily there have
not .:. been serious consequences.- t-For
the present the intention of the Nihilists
is believed to be to keep the police in a
state of constant excitement and. at
last tire them out or lull them to sleep
with the idea that the danger has been
exaggerated.; They also reckon on
harsh measures and arrest producing dis
content among many people, who when
the time comes for the grand attack on

tionists. 'In -the iglrt between- Friday -and
Saturday seditious placards were found
stuck np in. the ticinity of the theatres,

Among all those taken the police failed
to find in a single case as much as a
scrap of paper which appeared to have
anything to do with the proclamation.
The mysterious bill-sticker, on the oth
er hand, "went on with his work inde
fatigably, and the police could not
succeed in discovering him. The alarm
at last became so gre.it that two compa
nies, under command of Col. DeBey,
marched, out and were posted at the
entrances to a number of houses and
in the street. When the guard had its
attention called to the right, bills were
posted up on the left, and after they
had been torn down oh the left, there
on the right again appeared the mani
festoes or the men of the revolution.

Instantly the government ' fnade the
most extensive preparations for de

up bis quarters with his entire staff in
the offices of the general staff opposite
the winter palace. In the riding school
of the gu.irJs a regiment of hussars of
the guards were quartered, while the
barracks of the Paoloff and Picoban

of troops and the whole artillery of the
guards received orders to hold itself in

troops continued ' several days" and

the revolution did not break out.
Probably the whole story of an intend

Strike of Xew York 'Longshoremen.
New York, May 1. The 'longshore
men, according to a resolution adopted
at a meeting last night, went on a strike
this morning, when an attempt was
made by the steamship companies to
enforce the working rates at 25 cents
per hour, day and night alike. The
lines on which the strikes took place
were the Anchor, French, Morgans,
Old Dominion, Pacific Mail, State, Gui
on, Cunard, White Star and a few oth
ers. The places of the strikers are taken
by the crews of the vessels and it is said
the companies will not be much incon
venienced the present week as the
steamships are nearly all laden.
The police have perfected arrange
ments to supress any outbreak should
one occur, but the strikers are quiet
and orderly and will, they .say, stand to
gether for their rights. They do not
intend to molest any men the companies
may employ in their places, and feel
confident of success.
