arty mansgers in Texas were contem
olating these fic's .and the damsges
done by the Sjnday law and tbe
whisky legislation and the free school
'luainess. Tbe condition of parties in
ft xs was never as revolutionary as to
lay and there was never a time when

CoskliivO luug beioie bu fell had
leclared his purpose to resent the out-
rage done him by Hiyes In removing
Cornell from tbe New York custom
house by making Cornell Governor.
Bit Cornell la gtorwing nervous and
unhappy. Ever since the Rhode Inland
escapade the Hyperion of the 8enate
refuses to exhibit himseif in public
lie failed to deliver an agricultura'
iration "the greatest tffnt of bis
life" which he was to hive pronoun-
ced several days ego. Cornell grows
veary-acd anxious. Simply because
f the close intimacy between himself
tnd Cor kltog his name is dropped by
everal Republican papers as that of a
referred candidate for gubernatorial
minors. Hyer of course is well
p'eased and Conkling broods over his
II luck in silence at U ica. The
S irtgue shotgun is never absent from
Oonkling's mmd's eye and be refese-
'o expose himself. Cornell hardly had
a competitor for the nomination even
at Cockling willed it till the latter be
c tine a poacher at Canonchet. It was
ai oicced latt week by authority the
iiopatches atktid that Conkling
vould attend tbe Republican S.ate
lonycntion and it waa farther int
nated that no effort will be mad4o
rebuke II tyes by nominating Cornell.
it thus m ma that the President wins a
Oockliog lows force and aa the Presi-

hese two that when the modest mul-
atto livery stable keeper of New Oi

nii-chief than befel Cockling and his
fnenls in Rhode Inland. Conklina

erred tbe assertion of tbe fact was al
ways accompanied even when his pub-
lic enemies spoke of bis career with
assertions of his perfect purty of pur

that legislatures will compel town
