J.F. HALLO II AN.
What Republican Leaders Say.
Xnw York despatches say:
Those persons, and they -were!
doubtless numerous, who were ex
pecting Hon. .las. G. ISlaine to
seize the opportunity to make an
attack on the administration were
doomed to disappointment. The
ex-secretary was in the cit- on his
way from Augusta to Washington,
aud while here he refused to be in
terviewed. He nevertheless talked
freely to one or two personal
friends concerning the political
situation. He does not see any
thing in Tuesday's reverse to cause
despondency for the future of the
Republican parly. The Demo
cratic party suffered an overwhelm
ing defeat in 18-10 "nut carried the
electioiLin 3S44. The Republican
party was practical !y beaten in
several important northern states
in 1862, but Abraham Lincoln car
ried all except one or two in 1SG1.
He believes victory may be
achieved in 1SS4 by presenting as
candidate for president a man upon
whom both factions can unite and
who has the confidence of the
country. It looked to him as if
Ben Harrison was the one for the
exigency, and to the accomplish
ment of that result he will lend his
influence as a private citizen who
believes Republican surcos in
1884 is essential to the welfare
of the country. Blaine, then is
reason to believe, is in earnest in
saying he is not a candidate for
the presidency or any other
office. In August last lie said,
"I am not a candidate, and it
now looks to me that 1 shall never
be a candidate." To-day he re
affirmed this statement and
left off the qualifying clause.
His language now is, "1 want
you to distinctly understand that
I am no candidate for the presi
dency, nor for airy political office,
and nothing can induce me to be."
This was to to the intimate friends
Blair, of New Hampshire, when
questioned remarked that in his
opinion if Butler carried Massa
chusetts in 1883, he would be a
. very strong Candida for the
Democratic nomination, and the
contest in that state next year he
thinks will be the bitterest ever
known, and Butler's promi
nence in the national Demo
cratic part depends entirely on
his re-election to the governorship.
Senator Blair expressed the
opinion that Butler is anyway the
strongest man the Democrats can
nominate in SSI, :is he is especi
ally strong with negroes of the
south and is a fnm supporter of
.Mahonism. Senator Blair inci
dentally remarked that Blaine had
by his antagonism to Mahoue, lost
popularity with the colored voters.
Secretary Chandler preferred to
talk about the Republican
victory in New Hampshire, but
rather of the result in other
states, saying the fight in the Gran
ite state resulted in an especially
grand victory for the Republican
party. The secretary said he
should not pronounce a verdict on
the general result of Tuesday's
ballot-boxing until an autopsy had
The British prophet Zadkiel is
kinder to President Arthur in his
almanac for 1S83, than arc our
own politicians. Zadkiel predicts
that no harm will oveitake the
president "until next July."
Zadkiel, it appears, has learned
from "a voice of the stars" that on
that month "the president of the
United States will be in personal
danger at the latter part of this
month, and should take precautions
accordingly." Zadkiel is evidently
not aware that when July next
comes in the president of the
United States will be under the
protection of a Democratic con
gress. Nine thousand one hundred

have received fewer votes than J
Hancock, who lost the staile and!
the presidency by about one-J
tenth of that number of votes.
This would indicate that 200-
000 Republicans did not vote, or
perhaps that a smaller number
did not vote, while comparatively
few voted the Democratic ticket.
The presumption is fair that the
Democratic vole was well brought
out. Inhere were no disturbing
elements at work in that party
and there was just enough assur
