DRY WEATHER THE BtTSfXESS OUTLOOfc
SAMUEL J. TILDEN WHAT KIND OF A
MAN HE IS TnE HEATED NIGHTS THE
TIXTON FAMfl.f STOCKS IN ACBCRS
EW YORK, July H, 1876.
It has been fearfully dry in the city
all the summer, so much so that seri
ous fears were at or,o time entertained
that the water stipply ot the city might
fail. New York is supplied from one
source, Croton River, and; the water
ppe. Imagina the distress ihat would
be occasioned if, by any accident, that
pipe should be destroyed ! Imagine a
million of people w iChotrt-water ? But,
as dry as it has beeil in the city, it is
nothing to vhat our neighbors in New
Jersey have suflbied. The whole State
is as dry as a powder hom, and the
loss ot the farmers and gardners will
be immense. The vegetable crop is
nearly a total lews, the berries dried up
on the bushes, and the apples are fall
ing from the trees. In parts water has
been procured for house purposes with
iilTiculty, and stock has suffered terri
bly. So hot find dry A season has not
been known for eight years".
THE BUSINESS OUTLOOK.
lUiisness is as dull ss ever, but some
of the merchants are hoping that with
the fall there will come a revival.
They argue that prices having got
down to something , near the bottom,
merchants from the interior H11 come
to New York and bay, and that they
will buy more liberally. Then they
count 011 the low cost of passage and
freigh,t to attract buyers to this market.
I insist that they are wrong. The job
bing trade is lost to New York forever.
The merchants of Chicago, Cincinnati,
St. Loui.-, Toledo, and the other whole
saling points in the west can buy of
the manufacturers just as cheaply as
can the New York merchants, and they
can do business at half the cost. Thev
can undersell the New York jobber in
all American goods, and thank heaven,
American goods jare the goods
Americans are mostly using- now. t Be
sides it costs less to go to anyof these
points than it does to New York, find
freights are less. New York will al
ways be the financial and importing
centre of the continent, but nothing
eke. The great city has seen its best
days, and if it holds its own it is more
than I expect fof it.- There are thous
ands of empty stores rh the city, and
tens of thousands of empty dwellings.
And the end is not yek Rents have
shrunk two thirds, and there has been
a depreciation in feal estate such as
this country never saw. I do not
count much on New York. The West
holds the key of the position, and it al
SAMUEL J. TILDEX.
Tilden, the Democratic nominee for
President, is probably the most unfit
man for that position that could have
been selected. He is a born aristocrat,
and is in sympathy with no human
being but Sam. Tilden. He lives in
one of the most gorgeous mansions in-
New York, and, more than any one
man in the city, keeps up the style of
the European nabob. His associates
are the kid-gloved Democracy ot the
Manhattan Club, and he never - Would
have been a Democrat, only for the
reason that through his money he could
control the' lower classes, whom, he de
spises as heat tily as a man can.- He
has two qualities greed for money.,
and ambition tot political prominence.
And there is nothing under heaven that
he will not do to attain these ends;
He was the trusted counsellor of Tw-eed,
so long as he coold share his robberies,'
and he only tin ned against him when
further association would hate damag
ed his other aspirations. lis did not
preserve faith with that gang even.
He took their money, and then deserted
them wheu they were in danger. He
was the hired retainer and partner in"
the most gigantie railroad swindle of
this age, and having made some sii or
seven millions by these operations, he
was strong enough financially to btiy trp
a Democratic Convention, and he in
Working his campaign by the same
agency. He is buying up his opponent,
with money he is silencing those who
are dangerous to him, and with money
he is organizing that vast mass of dan
gerona voters, the purely vena-1. There
are men at work for Tilden in this city
handling thousands, who nevef saw
ten dollars of their own money there
are thousands of small Democratic pa
pers paying off their little mortgages,
and tho starving 'independent'' press,
all over- the country, are euporting Til
den, and theif editors,- for the first
time' in their lives are wearing . decent
clothes. Sam. Tilden is the first man
who has ever undertaken to buy him
self into the Presidency. Should he,
by any accident, be elected, his admin
istration will be the most corrupt that
the contitry has ever been cursed with.

THE HEATED NIGHTS.
To' the' poor ft-ho are crowded into
the mserable tenements in the lower
parts ot the city, the hot nights of the
past month halve been terrible. Jo
stay in their miserable ventilated rooms
was to smother, and so they took the
streets tor it, where it was a trifle bet
ter. As early as nine o clock, thous
ands upon thousands of the poor, men,
women and chudrei, were out on the
sidewalks, getting ready for sleep
They brought out with them such blan
kets and bed-ticks as- they posressed
thousands had nothing whatever to lie
upon and made nrrsuch beds as they
could upon the sidewalks, cellar doors,
or any other place that was dry. It
was a curious sight to see mothers get
ting their liitle ones ready for sleep, to
see girls and women twisting up their
hair and making theif limited toilet in
the open air, under the glare of the gas
lamps. But they were compelled to do
it, or die. The heat Was so intense
that to attempt to sleep in tho rooms
would be to invite death while livinc
was possible even amid the stenches of
the filthy streets. This continued reg
ularly every night for over a month.
io the poor in .New York all seasons
are terrible. In the winter they freeze
to death, and m the summer they smoth
er. The weather is still hot, but it is
Si nee liny last there has a change
come over Mrs. Tilton. She has' signi
fied her willingness to take assistance
fiom Theodore, and he has sent her a
thousand dollars, upon which she is now
living. The children, hereafter are to
live where" they choose, and the prob
ability is that this much-wrecked fam
ily will, hereafter enjoy something like
peace. By the way the people of Ply.
mouth Church have not used her proper
ly. Since the trial they have abso
lutely ignored her only two or three of
the ladies ot the congregation having
called upon her. They did raise a purse
ot $1,200 for her at the close otthe trial,
but never a cent since, nor have they
in any way taken any trouble to see
that she was in comfortable circum
stances. Mr. Beecher. for whose sake
she suffered so much, has been as neg.
ligent as the others, and among . them
tlie poor little lady has had a hard time,
and will have harder, bhe has already
kept boarders and taken in sewing to
keep herself, and but for the relief
llicodoie has extended to her, would
have suffered for food to eat. . It is not
impossible that the twain may come
Frank Moulton is after Beecher
again, hotter than eyer, and he swears
that he will nevef give him rest till he
has fastened the crime upoo him He
claims to have the 6oVer to do it if he
can ever get into a court that will give
him a show. Iho public have, how.
ever, lost interest in the matter. What
it wants is a fresh, healthy scandal.
the murderer of Fisk, ha been re
moved to Auburn Prison, and he is now,
for the first time, actually a convict.
At Sing Sing he vrm a clerk in the of
fice ot a shoe manufacturer who em
ployed prison labor, and he never slept
in a cell, or enioved prison fare. Tlmre
he had a very good time, and was as
comfortable as a man could be who
was under any restraint.- But in Au
burn .it is quite different. Mr. Stokes
has on him the prison garb, be practices
the lock-step, he eats as do other pris
oners, and is treated precisely as the
rest are. For the rest of his term Mr.
Stokes is likely to know what it is to
be a prisoner in earnest. He growls
about it, bat to no purpose. He is too
old s sensation to eicite any interest,
a'nd he will serve his time out and sub
side into a common loafer wheu ho is
discharged. The way of the transgress

lured him to his ruin, laughs at him as
