GramercvPark had reasons not known to Mr.
Marble for considering his "Bolivia" decidedly
" Brazil." For on the preceding day tho following
had como from Mr. Woolley :

Whatever significance may be given to tho word
" letch," which Mr. Havemoyer failed on a former
occasion to understand, there can bo very little
doubt as to tho meaning of tho proposal. And tho
reply of Gramcrcy Park was :

There is not much room to doubt what either of
theso propositions means. "Hundred thousand
dollars less half,' means exactly the same as " hall

Here, then, was tho nuthontv so anxiously
awaited. Hero was the authority implied, but not

Proposition lailed. Finished yesterday af tcmoon

found mo and said he had nothing, which I knew
already. Tell Tilden to saddle Blackstone.
One secret yet remains: Had tho conspirators
reason for the'ir hope f They can tell, if anybody
will now believe them. Mr. Woolley's dispatch,
nearly unintelligible, seems to imply a belief on
theirpart that Attorney -General Cocke, who voted
with the Republican members of the Board, to
throw out Democratic fraudulent returns from Key
West, ltafc been influenced by " dollars." The one
thing certain is that the "dollars" were ready to
make Samuel J. Tilden President, but the vote was
not. Perhaps they came too lato But if, in the
secret pnrpo-e of any trusted and sworn member of
that Board of throe, upon whose action depended the
fate of forty millions of people, there lurkrd a
thought of tieaeherv and mine, the God of Nations
saved this laud from ruin and dishonor, lor His
lightnings rvluscd, until it was too late, to bear in
telligibly the bhamelul older to consummate the
crime, and held their secret until the danger had
passed. Ho who gave to tho poor black in tho dim
Everglades of Florida tho power to defend his
rights by his vote; Ho who suffered Democratic
fiends to hunt down black Republicans in Georgia
and South Carolina until tho very name of Demo
crat had become a terror to tho colored men of ad
joining States; Ho who inspired the newly en
franchised citizen to 6tand liko a rock for justice,
for equal rights and tho honor of tho Nation, when
promt white citizens by the thousands wavered,
voted blindly, or fcold themselves ; Ho also turned
to foolishness all tho schemes of Gramercy Park,
and all tho money of Wall-st. Tho secret cipher
meant nothing when four words were gone. It
camoat last in full; the buyer stood ready and tho
money was there, but tho voto was not delivered,
and tho Nation escaped disgrace.

The South Carolina schemo at last foil to tho
ground because the one part necessary to give val
idity to all tho rest was not obtained. Tho four
votes necessary in the State Senate could not bo
bought; tho eventful day came; tho I'oimhlican
Senate stood firm, and the votes of the seven elect
ors were duly cast on tho Gth of December for Hayes
Tho plot of tho Democratic managers in Oregon
was to create a Tilden Electoral Collego after the
election, by causing Governor Grovcr to issuo a cer
tificate to ono Democrat (Cronin) who had not been
elected, in tho placo of ono of tho Iicpublican elect
ors, who was said to bo ineligible. Cronin was then
to develop himself into a full Electoral Collego by
" filling vacancies " in his own body, and was to cast
the single vote which Mr. Tilden needed in order to
become President. But for the success of this plan
it was necessary that ono of tho two Kepublicau
electors who held regular certificates should be
bribed to recognize and act with Cronin. To secure
rhK one J. N. H Patrick was sent to Oregon. Ho
corresponded with Colonel Pelton by means ot a
Dictionary Cipner." The book used was a little
" Household Eugli.-h Dictionary," published by T.
Nelson tfeSons, London, and tho cipher was trans
lated by turning back four pages.
Here aro a few ot tho Oregon cipher telegrams,
with their translations:

But still Pelton held tho pnrso half-shut, because

" would not rafilo for tho Presidency" though ho
was willing to pay a rensonnh'o price, "incromablo

no sat in a horse-car and howled for four block
that ho had been robbed of his watch. He was sa
old person and 6eemed to bo very much exercised
about it; at ono timo ho 6tcppcd out on tho plat
form bareheaded and hold up his right hand and
sworo ho wouldn't condono it. Several younger
persons who got on tho car with him assisted in
making a great row about the robbery; one of
them talked so.learnedly about it that tho passen
gers couldn't quito mako out whether ho was ox
patiatiug on the outrago or describing tho old gen
tleman as an escaped gyascutus ; thoy all agreed,
however, that it was what they called a 'damr
"shatno," and that it novor should be condoned.
Then a policeman camo in, and tho old person
charged an Ohio gontletnan in the car with tho
theft. Tho young fellows who had been fumbling
round the stranger supported tho ehargo, and they
all went off to tho station-houso together.
"Who aro these parties f and what's all this revr
" about f" said tho magistrate.
" Well, this 'ero old "un," said tho officer, is
"Sammy tho Rcformor'; ho used to bo in with
" Tweed, Sweeny and that gang. You may romom
"'ber, some ten years ago, we camo near pulling
him in with Tweed in tho Seymour-Hoffman job,
'but ho got off on an alibi; said ho was only a
"dummy in it. He's been on tho Reform lay for a
" year or t wo, and claims to bo connected with tba
"society for tho Suppression of Yico. thouch tha
" company ho keeps don't look ranch liko it."
'" Who aro tho rest of these follows P
"Well, they aro all Tweed's old pals. This 'ere
"high-shouldered fellow with looso chin always
"used to testify to Tweed's good character when
" tho old man got in trouble. The black-whiskered
" fellow lives lip tho river. Ho nsed to help the old
"man in the Alhauy business. Xho other fellow is
"a kind of a nevy or something to tho old party
"And the other T"
" Oh, bo's a stranger. Never saw him before. H
"says he's an Ohio man. lie's tho man thoso iul

Then Samm v said : " I don't caro anything about
"tho watch, but I do want to havo Btcaling stopped
"and thieves shown up. Don't ask me to condone
"it. for 1 won't do it,"
Upon examination tho watch which Sammy
claimed to havo lost was found to havo tho Ohio
man's name on it ; and so many passengers testified
to seeing the young fellows crowding tho Ohiomaa
and trying to pick his pockets, that two of them
confessed it, but said they thought it was Sammy's
watch, and they wanted to get it and restore it to
him. And tho high-shouldered man, who it ap
peared was making signs to tho other fellows, said
lit! thought it was Sammy's watch, too; but ho had
no idea of getting it back in that way. Ho only
mado signs to tho nevy whero the watch was, and
how carelessly tho Ohio man was carrying it, as a
sort of danger signal. Nevy said ho understood tho
signal to mean " go for it." and he -wont,
"Then it scorns," said the magistrate, "that this
"was only an 'inchoate offence' attompted by

"Notatall.Ias3iiroyou, Judge. Novcr dreamed ot

"thine, for Pvo told him I did not like it, and when,
" ho was caught once or twice before, I bave shown.
" considerable impatience. Ho did very wrong. His
" only excusu was that ho thought the gentleman
" had my watch, which is tho fact."
" Well, then, as this gentleman very plainly has
" his own watch, and the attempt to steal it by
"Sammy's pals or, as the high-shouldered man calls
"them, 'coparceners' was only an inchoate offence,
" we'll dismiss the ca.se."
" Couldn't you find, Judge." said Sammy, softly,
" that as tho boys failed to steal tho watch, tha
" Ohio man must have stolen it T That seems to be a
" reasonable theory."
' Wo never do business here in that way."
'" What ! Never t"
" Well, hardly ever."
" Then," said Sammy, " I desire on this intorest
" ing occasion to assert my entire belief, beforo God
"and my cuin'ry, that hs got my watch." And he
"btepped down, remarking that ho would novcr
" condone it.

hope for either place on the ticket in 1380, because
