Synopsis of Press Dispatckee,
The Cincinnati Convention.
Blaine s Condition Considered
Speaker Kerr in Great Dan
ger. Funeaal of George Sand.
Tone of the Eastern Press
on the Cincinnati Con
vention. Foolish Remark from Gen.
A Cincinnati dispatch of the 11th
says about one half of the delegates
are now here. The rest are expected
to-morrow and Tuesday. J. W. Lo
gan, Matt Carpenter, Governor Shep
herd and several others earnestly op
pose the nomination of Bristow. Far
well is advocating the nomination of
Wm. Wheeler of Illinois. The contest
between the friends of Blaine and
Conkling and of Bristow is fierce, and
threatens to become irreconcilable,
while between the friends of Bristow,
Morton and Hayes there is the great
est cordiality, and a tacit agreement
that with the nomination of either,
the others will be satisfied. The
Conkling men are very busy scheming
and they count on winning through a
They are offering the
second place to the friends of Hayes,
but the latter refuse to take the bait.
There was great excitement in the
city on the receipt of the news ol
Blaine's illness and speculation is rife
as to where his strength will go in
case his illness should prove serious.
Washington dispatches of the
12th, are conflicting with respect to
the health of ex-speaker Blaine.
One dispatch reads as follews: A
member of the House just from
Blaine's residence report his symp
toms decidedly unfavorable. Blaine
has been for some time in a semi-
unconscious state, but is now talking
wildly, entirely out of his mind. He
imagines he is still at church and
calls on those around him to take
him home. Later we have the fol-
lewing: "Blaine has improved steadi
ly all night, and slept well. But as
the rest is necessary to-day, I have
deemed it expedient to place a bar
rier at the entrance of his house.
He is now sleeping 10 A. M. Signed
G.W. Pope." Ropes are placed across
the streets leading to his residence,
to prevent his being disturbed by
passing vehicles, and men are sta
tioned at the door who deny admit
tance to all persons. The Blaine in
vestigation has been postponed two
Speaker Kerr is reported to be in
great danger, and his voice is failing
visibly. The investigation of charges
against him resulted in a declaration
A Paris dispatch of the 11th,
gives an account of the funeral of
George Sand at Nahant on Saturday.
The funeral was attended by thou
sands of people, although a heavy
rain prevailed. Prince Jerome Na
poleon and Alexander Dumas were
among the pall bearers. Paul Men
rice read an eulogy written by Victor
Hugo. In the House of Deputies on
the tenth, two motions were made for
the erection of a statue of George Sand,
and urgency was. asked for them. The
chamber refused to declare the mo
Eastern journals of Monday are
largely given to opinions and specu
lations of correspondents at Cincin
nati as to the names of the Republi
can Presidential candidates. These
are so full and contradictory on all-
points that any attempt to summarize,
classify or reconcile them would be
impossble. Names are given of those
bargaining for this and that candi
date, by the active political agents of"
the severaljcandidates. The Tribune
thinks that Blaine is developing new
strength ; the Times thinks he i
weakening. All admit that Conk
ling has great undeveloped strength.
The Sun and Herald have gone so far
as to believe the nomination is either
his or the Great Unknown's.
The Herald's Washington cor
respondent gives the following re
markable paragraph relative- to
Blaines illness : " General 'Garfield
who was among the earliest to call od
the prostrate ex-speaker, said to the
doctors during the consultation a& to
the nature of his aliaments: 4Gentle
men,, you can call it what you please,
but it is a case of assassination u
The- bark El wood Coopet which
arrived at San Francieco last week
from Sydney is commanded by Cap
tain Lud'er Hopken, who will be re
membered; as-the sole survivor of the
brig Shelcroff, which left San Fran
cisso June 22d, 1871, for Callao, lumber-laden,
and became waterlogged.
She had. on. board a crew and passengers-numbering
sixteen all told, who"
died one-by one from starvation and
exhaustion- After 108 days drifting
about,, she- was sighted by the steamer
Moses Taylor from San Francisco to
Honolulu who sent a boat on board
and found in the forecastle a weak
emaciated human being, the subject
of this sketch, and the only soul saved
out of the entire ship's company.
The vessel had drifted about 2000
miles from the time of the accident
until she-was boarded by the steamer.
In some remarks made upon the
Sandwich Islands Treaty last week,
the mistake was made of considering
wool as one of the articles to be ad
mitted into the United States free of
duty. 4tThe boot is on the other
leg," by terms-of the Treaty, wool is
to be admitted free of duty into the
Sandwich Island? from the United
States. However, the amount likely
to be affected either way is so small
that it would not disturb trade or
production probably in either coun
try. It may prove of benefit to our
wool-growers to have the privilege
of introducing their wool to the Ka
nakas duty free although the tem
perature of fcheir climate and the
habits of the natives are not very
likely to build up any considerable
market for woolen clothing. Where
a tappa cloth constitutes a full suit of
military uniform, broadcloth is not
likely to be manufactured orin;great
One of the roles of Mount Bol
yoke Seminary, forbidding one -lady
from introducing a gentleman to
another lady, was neatly avoided the
other day by a Bingharopton girl,
who, when her father came with a
trunk to her room while ber friend,
a Miss Blank, was present, said :
"Father, I am sorry I cannot intro
duce you to my friend, Mis Blank,
but the rules forbid iU "Yes,"
said father, shaking hands with the
young lady; "-and I am sorry too."
