Political busesess--the centennial
tue fourth in. the city a reform
incident the churches.
JfEW York, July 14, 1876.
The Democracy of Jfew York are the
sickest set of men that ever lived. The
nomination of "Slippery Sammy," does
not strike them at all favorably and they
have, at this early day, given up all hope
of electing him. The fact is, they see that
the American people are not ready, as yet,
to place the government in the hands of a
party so soaked in corruption, so utterly
undeserving of confidence as the Democ
racy, as it is nov constituted.. Some row
will be made to carry congressional tickets
and local offlecs, and some powder will be
burnt, in consequeiiee, over tb presidential
nominees ; but no one has an idea that
Tilden has any reasonable chance of suc
cess. Betting men are offering odds that
Hayes will carry .New York, and they find
no takers. The decent portion of the
Democrats have got tired of spending
money for the purpose of placing specula
tors in the best offices, and hordes ot un
naturalized Irish in minor places. The
business men of the city know that Tilden's
nomination was the result of a bargain and
sale between his supporters and the infla
tionists of the West, and altogether, there
is a demoralization in the Democratic camp
that is very encouraging to those who
want good government And speaking of
political matters, I wish every Republican
in the United States could see the "Sunday
Democrat," a paper which Tilden's money
supports, and which is the organ of the
Irish eud of the party. To make sure ot'
the support of the Irish Democrats, it has
a portrait of Kernan the nominator ot Til
den, right over a prominent portrait of
Tilden, with this inscription. "A Catho
lie statesman, Senator Kernan, the nomina
tor of Gov. Tilden." This is a bid for the
support of the Catholics an assurance to
them that Tilden is fairly in their hands.
and that, in the event of his election, they
will, in national matters, have the same
consideration that they have always had
from him in the other positions he has
tilled. Without the Irish-Catholic vote in
this city, the Democracy is nothing; to get
it the Catholic church must be conciliated
In the most, substantial manner. The gor
geous cathedrals, churches, monasteries,
and convents, all on ground which Demo
cratic pol it icians filched from tlie city for
them, and which are more than half sup
ported by grants from tlie public treasury.
attest the price the Democracy lias paid for
The Republicans of the city are not only
confident, but eutirely jubilant. The nom
ination of Hayes and Wheeler they accept
as the best that conid have been made, and
more than that, as all that was desirable.
Clubs are being organized -in all the wards,
and the best men in the city are taking
hold of the work. While it is impossible
to carry the city, the Democratic majority
will be so reduced as to make the state
absolutely certain for the Republican ticket.
The Liberals are, as a rule, in line again
and thousands of Democrats will vote the
Republican ticket for the first time in their
lives. The north part of the state where
Mr. Wheeler resides will give the largest
majority for the ticket ever known, and
will itself, more than balance all the frauds
that can be perpetrated in the city. The
outlook is excellent here ; see that you do
your duty everywhere else.
I hate to write that -ord, for there is no
such thing in New York. The wholesale
merchants are doing little, the retailers are
doing less, except the little spurt they had
in Fourth of July goods, and tho other
trades are dead as smelt. "It will be bet
ter after the Fourth," was the hopeful
thought, but it is worse than before. And
even the lawyers are feeling it. Tbe courts
have all adjourned, aud the poor lawyers
have all gone Mito the country, where they
cart live cheaper and get a breath of fresh
air, and wait till cooler weather enables
them to come back and pluck their clients
with more comfort to themselves. Alto

THE CENTENNIAL. '
Drew off its thousands from the city this
week. All business was closed from Satur
day at three to Wednesday morning giv
ing the New Yorkers three good days to
see the great show. It is estimated that
lorty thousand people trom this city alone
were in Philadelphia, enjoying the Exposi
tion. It any sistht-seeinar can he culled
joyment with the thermometer at 104 in the
snaoe. tue neat was intense. Members
of military organizations in the grand pro
cession dropped in the streets, and the suf
ferinz of the multitude that Hni tho
streets was awiul. The how was the big
gest that ever took place In the United States,
except, perhaps, the New York procession.
All the trades were represented, and the
city was as gorgeous na could be. Every
building, public and private, was profusely
decorated, and at night the elty was one
blaze of light. Such a display was never
seen before, and never will be again for a

At this rate you can afford to go alow, and
take it leisurely. Don't ; think of staying

The eve of independence!
The Fourth of July "besrai the night
Jjefore. Sunday and Mondaj passed off
very quietly, tile Doys tioiumg tceir crack
ers and fireworks in reserve. Tut many of
tne snops gave their emplojees holiday
from Saturday afternoon. Alwut five in the
afternoon of Monday business was virtually
at at' an end. At nine in the evening
Broadway was full of people.' in the street
and out of it as thick as they ieonld stand.
The denizens of the east side Ot New York
that hide in their lodgings and workshops
at all times save holidays, came out, the
Germans with wife, children and baby, the
Irish boys and girls, fleet-footed and fleeter
tongued, and stood around, cheerful and
perspiring, or sat on steps and curbstones,
till the great show should begin. . that
would be an event in their lives. At nine,
the signal for the illumination was given.
The buildings were gay and a-flntter with
flags siiicr morning, when Broadway
looked as ii all the butterflies of ihe world
had settled upon its face in the sun. 1 And
now. looking down the street miles away
where it sinks to the harbor, as far as one
could see, a calcium light shone, a great
blazing star in the forehead ot the sky, and
below wound a river of fire, tossing glitter
ing waves of flame, th .it re rich till lost
among the tall buildings , ol Union Square.
As a spectacle, of unreal magnificence, the
effect was exciting and tho prodigal won
ders of magic aud romance sceuieU possible
in that wild blazing night.
It was a sofi and splendid evening, a per
fect moon rode high, as If to mark the
splendor belosv, a fresh breeze blew up
from the bay, and through that gulf of peo
ple miles on tniles uptown went the torch
light procession, first, the city troops, in
full uniform, in column bv company a
gallant'sijihr. The finest of all not the
aristocratic Seventh Redolent or the pet
ted Twenty-tecond, but the old Seventy
ninth Highlanders, disbanded, who had
begged permission to come out with the
other troops. From Major-General Ward,
who stood at the head of the Third. Tirirmdo
the beau-ideal of a soldier, high, courage
ous, impassive from sword-hilt to chapean.
every one of those engle-faced black Scotch
who marched kilted and plumed behind
him with a dagger in his garter, they were
the very make of soldier, and men tor .any
commander to covet. The German troops
were fine looking soldiers, and, in their
spiked helmets and close blouses. looked as
if they still wned allegiance to King Wil
liam. The Cuban societies made a fine
impression for so small a body ot men,
their dress nnd bearing unmistakably that
of gentlemen, and it was pathetic to see
their beautiful colors a notlier red, white
and blue rarriad in honor of a country
which celebrated the independence they
were struggling to achieve. The dark,
ptoud, handsome faces that marched in the
shadow of its folds were lit up with the
spirit of ihe hour, as they -flashed back the
gayest repartee to the cliecrs and jests of
tlnvjerowd,. ; - :
there was such a noise by the crowd that
the chiminjr of the bells lost its efFeet. nnrl
the singing of the eight hundred members
ui uie ucniHiii cuorai socieries was un
heard. .People stood packed around the
tour sides of the squares, which were filled
in the center with military : and from the
four angles a bombardment ol fireworks
was kept up for an hour that made the
place little less than hell to the sieht.
'el .. !.-. i . "
nicio ncic me accompaniments 01 women
tainting, and pickpockets making organized
rushes to drive people into the corners
where they could work them better, while
the cannon rockets, which seem the favorite
pyrotechnic this year, dulled the boom of
ordnance from the North and East rivers.
One wondered how the children stood it.
tor there were hundreds ot babies in arms
whose mothers could not stay at home and
lose the sight., Next day. Broad wav was
quieter than it ever was of a Sunday, tor
an were urea out. At evening, a beauti
ful sight from the Battery finished the day,
with a stroke cf natural glory. Heavy clouds
gathered in tbe west, betokening a storm.
out as tue nrsi gun was nrea at sunset, the
light broke through, aud the arch of cloud
shone an arch Of glory, under which rolled
the smoke aud thunder ot salute from forts
aud 'ships down the harbor and up river,
answering and echoing fitting close of
such a day. aud fitting honor to the mem
ories it celebrated.
The casualty list was very small consid
ering the vast number on the street, aud
everywhere else, engaged in the exploding
01 comuusuuies. occasionally a ooy would
get a bullet in his uistol, and that bullet
would kill or maim somebody ; occasionally
a girl's elofhes would take Are from sparks.
,and she would burn to death, a few build
ings were burned,- and ail occasional i
pyrotechuist was blown no WuJj his own!
dynamite. But, after ali. tie accident
were comparatively few, and the city has
reason to congratulate itself. The day. or
days, rather, passed off co tertably, all
tiling cousiuereu. 1
ONE REFORM INCIDENT.
Two years ago (he "Reformers" who are
now supporting Tilden aDoronriated 50.-

o".wu mure was 'aimronriatea
. i.t.. 1 . n .. . . , , . ....
iukiii in mi 3i3u,uuv. vat was done
with it? Tompkins Sauaretis today a
dust pile, with ho pretence ofgrass, foun
tains orianytmng else. The $130,000 were
stolen by Tilden's 'Reformer" the same
as a million of dollars were stolen before.
If the Republicans outside ot tbe city could
only know what a set of thieves the "Re
formers" who went to St. Louis really are.
they would work day and night for their
are, like the business houses, iti a state of
suspension, during tbe hot westber. The
pastors are an etr in the country, or aown
bv the sea-sidei takiucr the rest that some
of them hare earned. Henry Ward Beecher

the way this ida of Tyng'a is a good one.
He noticed that the sinners did not go to
the HiMHXIrome, last winter, that only
tlie pious were there. As the sinners would
not come to iyng, iyng propvscu 10 go

the midst of taem, and he erects an im

he had his skirmishers golnir about palling
them in, and lie preaches there constantly.
He is doing a good work, The hardened
reprobates of the worst part of the city are
brought nnder gospel Influences, and very
many of them have been induced to lead
better lives. Tyng is a hearty supporter
of Peter Dwrer acf Jerry McAnley. who
are hard at work among the lowest people
of the down-town part of the city. He is
an honest, eloquent, soonscientioua worker
for good, and deserves all the good things

An Honest Acknowledgment. The
Democrat Fays, speaking of Gov. Haj es :
'lie is an amiable man, we all know
a man of Integrity, we are free to allow ; a
pious man and a respectable citizen. But
that is not the sort ot a man we wish tor
President at this time, when required in
White House, and a great work of reform
needs to be undertaken." r
This is true, of conse, just what we have
said alf tbe time : . Ilayea is an honest taan,
a man of integrity, and therefore "not the
sort of a man" the Democrat and party for
whom . it speaks, tvtfsh for President.'4
Every sensible man in community knew
this before, but no one expected the- Demo
crat to show its hand in this manner.
Haye'a principal claim to the Presiden
tial chair Is, that he belongs to. the Repub
lics n party and never stolo anything.
Very. True.- At-TiMeri's principal
claim to the Presidential chair is, that he
belongs to the Democratic party and baa
acquired a colossal fortune by robbery and
