Senator Johnston called up the bill
to authorize the bonds of manufactnr-
„ era of tobacco , snuff and cigars , and
v ifho are exporting the same , to be can
celled at the port of clearance.
Senator Kirkwood said that no
doubt the exporters of tobacco suffered
great hardships in the precautions ta
ken to prevent their tobacco from be
ing returned to this country , but the
exporters of distilled spirits suffered
more , for in their case the bond can
not be cancelled until the vessel has
reached a foreign port and the news
of the unload-ng of the goods has been
received. He therefore moved to
mend by providing that the forego
ing provisions shall apply to tbo bonds
required of exporters of distilled spir

i tectedl This session is nearly ended
. / and the quettion arises : When will

president will only have about twenty-
four hours probibly to fill these nine
offices. He cannot make them during
vacation. It the senate fails to con
firm them they cin't be appointed un
til next session. "Is it well then , he
asked ' 'to run this risk so late in the

Beck was opposed to the appointing
of the commission.
Pend'nsj further discussion the sen

The sen\ta in exscutive session to

The committee on elections wanted to
give them -eich § 8,000. The house
got into the utmost disorder over
these amendments. After much dis
cussion , Harris , who was in the chair ,
was anxious to hurry business
througn , and he hurried over the
points of order with the greatest
haste , thus dissatisfying a largo num
ber of members. They disputed his
decisions and it was half an hour ba-
fore order wan restored. The amend
ment was finally adopted' striking out
the sums appropriated for Gurtin and
Yocum , the object being at some fu
ture time to make the amount larger.
Cox offered , in another form , his
previous amendment in relation to the
corrrction of the lists of the census
enumeration by reducing the appro
priation , He relieved it of a point
of order that was previously made
against it.
Hawley opposed the amendment.
He feared that if it were adopted
there would be no fair correction of
the lists.
Cox said that the amendment was
drawn up by General Walker and had
f he sanction of the secretary of the
interior. The amendment was de
clared rejected amid great confusion.
The committee rose and the bill , as
amended , was reportsd to the house.
The previous question was seconded ,
and at 6:05 : p. m. the house adjourned
till Monday , when the amendments

PARIS , Msy 29,1 a. m. The weakness -
ness of the communist element iu the
present assembly wai demonstrated
yesterday in a somewhat ludicrous
manner. M. ' Clemenceatt brought
forward a question respecting the
measures which were taken by the po
lice on last Sunday to interfere with
and disperse .he communist demon
stration which was attempted on that
day. The question was addressed to
the ministry and requested them to
stale why these measures were adopt
ed , and M. Clemenceatt added to his
'proposed question a. mot ion , setting
foith , that the assembly r.egretted that
the government had no confidence in
the good conduct of the people , but
pursued a policy of repression and of
interference with the expression of
public opinion. After the very brief
debate , which" was marked by virulence
on the part of the communistic mem
bers , and by good natured irony from
the members of the left and left cen
tre , M. Clemenceatt's motion was de
feated by a vote of 30 to 31. The an
nouncement of the result was received
in the assembly and galleriei by cheera

m. H snry Hamlin was hung in the
county jail of this city yesterday , for
the murder oE Watchman Shipraan ,
in the state prison at Wethorsfield , in
Soptemfiar , 1877.
Hamlin and VVm. Allen , were pris
oners and were engaged in attempting
to escape when Shipman discovered
them and was shot. Both men had
loaded pistols and each denied firing
the shot. Both of the men had sev
eral trials. Allen was at one time
under sentence of death , but was
subsequently found guilty of murder
in the Eooond degree and sentenced
for life , but Hamlin wai in prison for
burglary. He entered under an as
sumed name , Hamlin , and his real
name he refused to give. Last night
he slept soundly from 1:15 a. m. to
5 a. m. At eight in the morning ,
man was celebrated for the dying man
by Fathers Jdus-h and Lynch in the
jail chapel. Ten minutes before 11:30 :
Sheriff Seymour , the condemned man ,
two priests and two deputies , entered
the yard in which 150 spsctatora were-
assembled , and proceeded to the gal
lows. It was the one upon which
Edwin Hayt was hung in Bridgeport
two weeks ago. On the scaffold
Hamlin said , clearly and without apparent - '
parent emotion : "We never had any
intention of killing Shipman or doing
hpdily injury. I hope God wiil for
give as freely as I do now , Mr.
Sheriff. " The ropa was then adjusted
and at 11:40 : the drop fell. Death
was instantaneous. Hamlins' body
was buried in the Hartford [ Roman
Catholic Cemetery.

IKDIAXATOLIS , May 29,1 a. m.
Eight alleged moonshiners from the
mountain fastnesses of Crawford coun
ty have been arrested , and those una
ble to furnish $1,000 bonds are now
lying in jail at Leavenworth. The
gang is charged with various villainies
in addition to their moonshine crook-
ednss. About two months ago their
suspicions rested upon a man named
Wm. Saltsgaven , whom they believed
had given evidence to the grand jury
of Crawford county. On the night of
the 7th of April , no Icai than forty des
peradoes visited hia house and broke
open the doors. After brutally mal
treating his wife and daughter they
eized "Saltsgaven and tied a rope
around his feet and dragged htm from
the house , and across a brook to a
tree some distance away , to which
they tied him and then whipped him
with hickory switches. After whip
ping himthe brutal wretches dragged
the man , lacerated , bruited and bleed
ing as ho was , over jagged rocks back
to his house. Not having yet satis
fied their vengeance they took a quan
tity of axle greasa and smeared it over
hia head and face and followed up
their indignity by holding his head
for leveral minutes in a feather bed
which they had ripped open.

both sides are talking of a secern
choice with an openness that bodes no
good to the chief contestants. There
is much speculation and gossip
concerning John Russell Young's
trip to Gilena , 111It is
asserted by some who , though opposed
to Grant , are not given to wild flights
of imagination , that Young is entrust
ed with an important and delicate
mission , to announce to Grant that his
chances for receiving the nomination
next Wednesday are improbable , if
not impossible , and that the best
course for him to pursue would be to
write a loiter withdrawing his name
to be read to the convention when bis
name is presented.
It is announced that a great mass
meeting of the Grant men will be
held at the exposition building next
Monday evening to offset the Central
Music Hall meeting of last Wednes

important mien , often accompanied
by ladies , are to be seen in all parta of

the street cm , railroad trains , and
everywhere one bears the convention
discussed. The talk is generally good
natured , with.apparent indifference as
to which of the leading candidates
wins. Occasionally ! however , an out-
and-ont Blaine , Grant or Sherman
man will give vent to his views in no
uncertain language. Among the prom
inent arrivals was Senator Pinchback ,
of Louisiana , a member of the national
committee , and a strong Grant man.
He. argues that the Grant bolters in
Louisiana were justified because the
central committee wai not allowed to
pass upon credentials and make oul

ia accompanied by a pleasant opoken
Creole , named T. T. Allyn , who in
dorsed his sentiments , except that he
only claimed Louisiana and Florida.
Ex-Governor Warmouth , who is al
the Gardner House , takes a different
view. He says Pinchbeck and Butler
wanted to make people believe they
controlled the state and could send _ a
solid Grant delegation , when , when in
fact they conld not. They did no
live up to the agreement ; we wantec
harmony aud hence planned the com |
promise. We knew we could not give
a single electoral vote , but hope to
have some Influence in the nomination.
Mr. Heusted , a politician from
Brooklyn , expresses himself very
positively , that the people of New
York are opposed to Grant.

James Root Jsays a quorum of the
national republican committee will be
here1 Monday. That they will take
the management of affairs out of the
sub-committee and prevent the ratifi
cation meeting at the exposition
building for Grant. It is reported
that Secretary Reynolds , oi
the exposition directors , has
said that 'no political gatherings ,
Grant or "anti-Grant , " will be allowed
iu th'e Exposition budding until after
the convention. The executive com :
raittec had formed thh determination
last week when the application by
anti-Grant men was made and refused.
The contract with the national com
mittee provided for the use of the
building only for a convention. The
committee was responsible for $4,000-
000 worth of property , and did not
propose to let in any crowd that
would , perhaps , bo disorderlyand un
manageable. Nothing could compel the
committees to recede from their posi
tion , and they would use all the force
necessary to enforce their decision.
Blaine men have appointed colored
Blaine followers in the city to act ai a
commitiee of reception for the south
ern colored delegates. They expect
that some of the Grant delegates may
be induced to desert from the ranks.

It has come to my knowledge

Some of these dishonest fellows
claim to be related to me , anc
set reports afloat , in an under

are in no way worthy of public

ically , that I have no connsction
