For Secretary of the Trcnsury,
we are to have Daniel Manning,
of Albany, representative Ameri
can. His parents were from the
humbler walks ot lite, Jiarly in
life he was apprenticed to the print
ers art, serving his time as compos
itor on the Albany Argus. He
afterwards was placed upon the
reportoriat stall', where his talents
developed themselves. He after
wards used to be editor of the pa
per ana .f resident et toe company
that owned the concern. To his
brilliant literary attainments were
added the possession of great bust
news qualifications, which the citi
zens of Albany recognized. He
resigns the Presidency of the Cora
mercial Bank of Albany, to enter
the new Cabinet. Daniel Manning
will make an able and conservative
Secretary of the Treasury.
For Attorney General, the great
est lawyer of the American Senate,
Augustus II. Garland, of Arkansas,
has been chosen. Garland is also
in the prime of life, beiDg about
53 years of age. He has been one
of the ablest and most valued mem
hers ef the Judiciary Committee of
the .Senate, Garland is a great
favorate anions; the able men
both parties who have courted his
society for the benefit of the thoughts
of his able brain. David Davis
and Senator Edmunds, Republi
cans, pronounced him the ablest
lawyer, by far, in the United States,
which is saying a good deal by Re
publicans, for Mr. Garland. Gar

For Postmaster Ger.eral we will
have the able services of William
Freeman Vilas, of Wisconsin.
William F. Vilas is 45 years of
sge, having been born in Orange,
Vermont, in 1840. His father was
a Democratic judge in Wisconsin,
and trained the young William te
the bar. After serving with hon
ors during tho late war, he com
menced the practice of law at
Madison, Wisconsin, where, at
present, he ranks at the head-ot
the legal talent of that city. Ho
has been, during the present session
of the Legislature of his State, the
leader of the Democrats, who will
miss his able and valued leadership.
Vilas is a representative of the vig
orous, aggressive young Democracy.
The portfolio of Secretary of the
luterier is to be taken in charge by
the Statesman and orator of the
South, L. C. Q. Lamar, o Missis
sippi. Mr. Lamar is 49 years old.
He is one of the greatest scholars
Lamar represents tho advanced
opinions of his State. His eulegy
of Charles Suraaer will go down to
history as ona of the greatest ora
torial efforts of the times, lie is
honest, able and efficient.
The State ef New York, gets an
other representative in the Cajbinet
in the person of William Whitney
as Secretary ot the Navy. Whit
ney was born ii Massachusetts in
1840. He was Corporation Coun
sel of New York City during the
prosecution of the Tweed rin y. His
eminent success established his rep
utation as a great lawyer. During
the campaign of 1876 Whitney was
the confidential adviser of tho sage
of Democracy, Samuel J. Tilden.
He was the organizer of the County
Democracy of New York City.
Whitney has always been regarded
as an intimate friend of Cleveland's
and did much toward bis success
during the Gubernatorial and Pres
idential campaign for the great re
former. The Secretaryship of War goes
to William R Eudicott, who is 58
years old. Judge Erdicott hails
from Salem in the Bay Ctate, and
was the candidate for Governor last
Fall. He has been Supreme Judge
of Massachusetts since 1873, which
office he filled with marked ability,
giving satisfaction to all shades of
political ofimon by his wise and
able decisions. until the year
1856, Endicott affiliated with the
old line Whigs. At that time he
entered the Democratic fold, and
has given great service to the Dem
ocratic party in his State. His ap
pointment will be especially picas
ing to the great body of Independ'
enta who bolted Blaine.

Smuggled Opium Discovered.
The Chinese, among other things,
are noted as the most cunning and
ingenious of all smugglers, and cus
tom house officials on this coats have
to keep their wits continually about
them to discover violations of the
law. Not a' vessel arrives from Chi
na in any port without the inspec
tor discovering some new mode by
which the cunning Mongols have
attempted to bring their most valued
ug, opium, into this country free
of duty. The latest scheme discov
ered is reported from San Francisco
and was the result of a sudden freak
upon the y art ot an agile custom
house officer. While Inspectors
McLaughlin, McCrary and McCoy
were aboard the City of Tokio, one
of his colleagues bantered McCoy
to climb the mainmast. McCoy
slipped off his coat and mounted
with the sgihty of an old tar.
When he reached the top spar he
tittered a shout, which caused his
companions to look up in apprehen
sion, but they saw him still clinging
to the rigging, which he was exam
ining closely. He commenced to
unwind some string, and in a few
moments descended with eight

found lashed to the top spar.
