The Unrivalled Prize Tomato
We take pleasure in announcing to the public that
we have secured the entire stock of this justly cele
brated Tomato. It originated in the garden of an
Amateur, who, after growing it for a number ol
j-carsin connection with all the leading sorts, be
came convinced that it was far superior to any oth
er, and that it should be widely disseminated"; and
for this purpose it was nut into our hands. In con
sideration of the many disappointments experienced
in the introduction of new varieties, we have given
It a thorough trial of two years; and it has far ex
ceeded our expectations, ever attracting groat atten
tion where exhibited, taking the first prize above
all others at the Massachusetts Horticultural Soci
ety's Exhibition the past two years.
On account of the Immense popularity of this
variety, we find that parties are ottering for sale a
spurious seed, desiring toolitaiu largo prices for the
common sorts. We would theretore recommend
parties purchasing only those sealed packets bear
mi; our name, as none others can be genuine.
Price per packet, 25 cts.; 5 packets, $1. Prices to

ELECTION FRAUDS IK NEW
IT II AT THE INVESTIGATING
Political Corruption Shame
Fraudulent Naturalization Papers and
THE NEW YORK ELECTION FRAUDS.
Judge Lawrence has prepared a vo
luminious report upon the New York
election frauds of last November, lie
will present it to-niorrow. Judge
Lawrence says :
"But appalling and startling as the
frauds have been in our past history,
they are all surpassed in some respects
by those perpetrated in the general
election in the State, and especially in
the city of New York. These frauds
were the result of a systematic plan of
gigantic proportions, stealthily prear
ranged and bodily executed not mere
ly by bands of degraded desperadoes,
but with the direct sanction, approval
and aid of many prominent ofllcials
and citizens of New York, with
shrewdly concealed connivance of oth
ers, -and almost without an effort to
discourage or prevent them by any of
those in whose interest and political
party associations they were success
fully executed, who could not fail to
have cognizance of them, and whose
duty it was to expose, defeat and pun
ish them. They were aided by cor
rupt and corrupting official patronage
and power, which not only encour
aged, but shielded and protected the.
guilty principals and their aiders and
abettors. These frauds are so varied
in character that they comprehend ev
ery known crime against the elective
franchise. They corrupt the admin
istration of justice, degraded the judi
ciary, defeated the execution of the
laws, subverted for the time being, in
New York State," the essential princi
ples of popular government, robbed
the people of the great State of their
rightful choice of electors for Presi
dent and Vice President, of a Govern
or and other officers ; disgraced the
most populous city of our Union ; en
couraged the enemies of Republican
government here and every-where to
deride our institutions as a failure, and
endangered the peace of the Republic
by an attempt to defeat the will of the
people in the choice of their rulers.
"The events of the past year in New
York, and the evidence taken by the
committee, furnish proof of all these
allegations. Among the most Slaring
Qftlie frauds committed in the interest
ofthe Democratic party, in the city
and State of New York, in connection
with the election in November, 1SG3,
are these : "Many thousands of aliens
fraudulently procured or were furnish
ed with certificates of naturalization,
illegally or fraudulently issued, by
means of which they were enabled to
register as voters, and voted in viola
tion of law. Many hundreds of certi
ficates of naturalization were granted
in the names of fictitious persons, to be
used by native born and naturalized
citizens and aliens in falsely register
ing as voters, and to enable them to
vote many times at the same election.
"Many hundreds of persons voted in
New York city from two to forty times
or more, each under assumed or ficti
tious names, fraudulently registered
for the purpose. Extensive frauds
were committed in canvassing tickets,
and names of voters were entered on
poll lists, and Democratic tickets coun
ted, as if voters representing them vo
ted, when no such persons voted at all.
GROSS NEGLECT OF DUTY.
"To accomplish these frauds, gross
neglect of duty and and disregard of
law, so great as to evince criminal pur
poses, prevailed in some of the courts ;
while the officers and Democratic par
tisans, of almost every grade, cither
by official influence, or otherwise,
aided, sanctioned, or knew of, and
failed to prevent them. The same in
fluence shielded perpetrators in near
ly all cases from detection and arrest;
and when arrested, they have, through
the agencies of judicial officers and
others, charged with the duty of pros
ecution, escaped all punishment.
"Through these agencies the Demo
cratic electors of President and Vice
President and the Democratic candi
date for the Governor of tlie State of
New York were fraudulently elected,
and the investigations of the commit
tee show that the existing State laws
and mode of enforcing them, are
wholly inadequate to 'prevent these
frauds, but that Congress has power
to enact laws which, if faithfully exe
cuted, will, to some extent, furnish
protection hereafter. There is no law
of Congress professing to prevent or
punish frauds in voting or conducting
elections, and the penalties relating to
certificates of naturalization are by no
"The largest number of naturaliza
tion papers ever granted in one year,
in New York city, before 18G3, Was in
1856, when only 16,493 were issued,
while in 1868 there were 41,112 isssed.
In October about 10,070 were natural
ized by our courts. The Supreme
Court, on October 14, issued 2100 pa
pers, and one Judge issued 9" on Oc
tober 19, and averaged 618 per day
during October. The Republican Nat
uralization Comruitteeprocured papers
for only 208-. The New York Prin
ting Committee ordered, betw een Sep
tember 16 and Gctober 23, blank appli
cations amounting to 10-5,000, and of
certificates of naturalization, 69,000;
in addition to this, other presses were
running on blanks for other Demo
cratic committies." .
The report quotes the specific evi
dence of naturalization certificates
fraudulently procured or issued in Oc
tober, 1868, to persons never appearing
in court. One witness swore that one
hundred and fifty were sent to the
Democratic Club at Peakskill and
used. Papers were issued on fictitious
names and used by repeaters. Frauds
in issued papers were not confined to
New York, but extended over Orange,
Ulster, Monroe, West Chester and
"Among the frauds practiced under
the Naturalization Laws were false
personation of applicants for naturali
zation, perjury of witnesses under as
sumed names, fabrication of applica
tions for naturalization, and others in
support of them, with the names of
applicants and witnesses forged; gran
ting of certificates of naturalization in
fictitious names, and on applications,
regular in form, but without the pres
ence of any applicants, and to persons
not entitled to them; applicants for
naturalization or those professing to
represent them with their witnesses
who were sworn in groupes, some
times larger and sometimes smaller,
and without any separate examination
of each witnes3in the Supreme Court,
not merely occasionally, but habitu
ally, is provided beyond controversy
W - .. V
OBSTRUCTIONS TOTOE COMMITTEE.
"The committee says that obstruc
tions were thrown in the way of tin
investigation by the Judce of the Su-
freme Court and clerk, Charles Loew.
n Mr. Loew's office the whole num
ber of blank certificates received was
39,000; issued as records show, 10,070;
blanks on hand, 4h02; leaving unac
counted for, 20,003. Mr. Leverson
testified that in October he was in the
room formerly used as a sheriffs office,
in the basement of the City Hall buil
ding, in which the court was held,
and clerks wero engaged in filling up
blank applications. The committee
estimate, for what is proved, that sixty-eight
thousand three hundred and
forty-three fraudulent certificates were
issued in New York, Ulster, Monroe,
Westchester, Rensalaer, Putnam,
Green and Orange counties, and there
is no evidence of any Republican
court ever having issued a single
JUDGE MCCUNN'S METHOD.
"In naturalization, before Judge
John II. McCunn he did not swear
any witness or applicant to testify 'the
truth, the whole truth, and nothing
but the truth,' nor even to make true
answer to such questions as should be
put, but he professed to swear appli
cants and witnesses in these words :
'That these affidavits you have sub
scribed are true.' -Before this, some
times, though rarely, questions were
asked as to age, residence and moral
character, but never under oath, un
less, indeed, swearing to the truth of
their affidavits could be so considered.
EXTENT OF THE FRAUDS.
"If the committee had devoted the
whole time, from their appointment to
the close of this Congress, it would
not have been possible to ascertain or
to take testimony to prove the number
of.persons who voted more than once
in" each of the 340 districts, in all of
which there were cast at the election
in November, 136,000 votes, a number
nearly as great as all the votes cast in
six of the States of the Union at the
"All that could be done was to prove
as the evidence docs, that an organized
system wa3 perfected and carried into
effect by the members of the Demo
cratic party, to register many thous
ands of names, fictitious or assumed,
and then to vote on them by hundreds
of persons voting from two to forty
times each for the Democratic candi
dates There is evidence to show that
it was part of the gigantic scheme of
carrj'ing the Democratic ticket in the
State of New York by fraud ; to delay
the canvassing of the vote in the city
until the result in the counties should
be known; then to make up the de
ficiencies not supplied by repeating
and other fraudulent voting; by stuf
fing the ballot boxes, and by a fraud
ulent canvass on the count of the vote.
"It is abundantly proved that many
names of voters were put on the poll
lists of voters when no such names were
registered. It was not possible for the
committee to trace thi3 species of fraud
in all the districts. Its existence is
proved. It was not confined to one
locality, but was wide-spread. Ample
arrangements were made to perfect it.
No Democratic official officer or justice
or politician took any measures to de
feat or prevent these frauds ; but they
did take measures to aid them, and to
obstruct the purpose of those who at
tempted in vain to defeat them. These
frauds are so monstrous in character
and extent that they could not have
been the work of a few or of many in
dividuals; it was the work of the
Democratic party. In their purposes
and modes of execution they showed
a symtematic plan devised by control
ing minds for purposes of carrying the
election in the State. The plans were
comprehensive enough to accomplish
the purpose designed. The means em
ployed to secure these thousands of il
legal votes were the use of fraudulent
certificates of naturalization to enable
aliens and repeaters to vote, the sys
tem of repeating so successfully and
extensively adopted, and the frauds in
canvassing tlie result of the vote. All
these have been adverted to. To make
these means successful, the necessary
agencies were employed to prevent
the detection as far as poisihle, and to
ueieat the purposes of those who
would expose or interfere with the ex
ecution of these fraudulent schemes,
the police census was obstructed and
prevented, and challenging was pre
vented by terrorism and voilence.
The evidence of a grand conspiracy to
perpetrate these frauds is abundant.
CHARGES AGAINST GOV. HOFFMAN.
"The Mayor of the city, now Gov
ernor of the State, the Attorney-General
of the State, District Attorney,
now Mayor, and other less distinguish
ed officials, rendered it valuable aid.
With the courts and officers of justice
all controlled by men elected as Dem
ocrats, and with vast official and per
sonal influence of the dominant party
in the city, men can escape all punish
ment for crime. Immunity and pro
tection were promised repeatidly to
those engaged in these election frauds.
The committee argue that the vote of
the city was too great, compared with
the vote of the former years, as was
shown by the average ratio of tbe vo
ters to population. The committee
think that two thousand fraudulent
votes were cast in the Sixth Ward
"The committee recommend the
withdrawal of naturalization from the
New York City Courts, and offer a bill
for that purpose; also a bill amending
the Naturalization Laws, and recom
mending one day throughout the
United States for the election of repre
sentatives in Congress, and providing
for the contesting elections of the
President and Vice President, and a
Constitutional amendment authori
zing Congress to regulate the appoint
ment of President and Vice President
directly by the people, or by electors
chosen by single districts."

Hitherto this business has foLIowad
th rivers, and has been so uncertain
that our merchants looked upon it la
a very different light from that ia
which thej now view it.
Now. that a new state of political
affairs has been inaugurated, and Lb

ample opportunity to place her ia a

and the arranging of the various ap

considerably effected' the business ia

In some of the recent advices from
Springfield, a new Insurance law is
reported. The bill has created constd
erable commotion in Insurance circles
in this city, in consequence of some of
its provisions. The first class compa
nies do not fear any proper restrict
tions, as they can comply with the re
quirements. There are a number of
small corporations who would have to
shut up shop.
As I have given you so much infor
mation on the business prospects, eic
of Chicago, I will conclude my say on
that point with a short reference to
one more department. Some time ago
I made some reference to the central-;
izing process, now I wish to particu
larize in reference to lumber trade.
This immense business is fast concen
trating on the South Branch, in what
is called tho New Lumber District. A
number of canals have been dug from

The house of Gerrit Smith is at Te

year of his age, yet full of life, and
interested in all passing events and
new theories. His wife is a beautiful
woman, just in the prime of life.
Their residence is a model of architec
tural beauty, spacious, and venerable
for age, having, becri built by Mr,.
Smiths father nearly a hundred years
ago. About thirty acres of ground
immediately around it lire laid out ia
gardens and walks, and adorned with
fountains, hot-houses, conservatories
and graperies, and made picturesque
with running water, ru.stic bridges and
rural erections. Mr. Smith maintains
a generous and almost undiscrimina
ting hospitality ; for, though he is in
clined strongly to materialism, and his
wife is a spiritualist an admirer of
Davis and! Harris and they combat
each other's opinions with the utmost
freedom ; yetauiongtheirvisitorsthey
often have Presbyterians, Episcopali
ans, Lutherians, Baptists, Methodists,
Uni verbalists, Unitarians,Deists, Athe
ists and Romanists. And, with all,
the hostess appears on the most friend
ly terms. Their evenings .are pased
in the enjoyment of music, dancing,
whist, and recitations, in the great
parlor of the mannion-house.

the boys were quiet spectators of the
