In 18SO , just before the election of Gen.
Garfield , Mr. Itlnlno wrpto the following let
ter to an Irish-American in Iloaton , in reply
to Home inmiiries :
AudfHTA , Ho. , October27,1880. MY JKAU
Sin : I received your friendly letter wllh
much pleasui-o. Lot mn Hay ia reply that
tlio course of youn-elf and other Irish
voters is oua of thi most extra > r-
tllnary anomalies in our political
history. Never , prob.iblyslnco the execution
of Hubert Kiumet has the feel ing of Iri > hmeii
the world over been BO bitter against HngUnd
nnd Englishmen .is at this hour. And yet thu
great mnss of the Irish voters will Tuesday
next vote precisely ns Kuglishman would have
them vote for tfco Interests of JCnglancl. Hav
ing Been Ireland reduced to minory and driven
to doipair by what they regard an the unjust
policy of England , thalriihmun of America use
ih ir Biiffrages in though they were the ngouts
and servants of the l'ujlis ( torios. The fioe
trulem : of Knglnnd desno uothlng HO much na
the defeat of Garfield nnd the election of
Hancock. They wi .h to break down the pro-
tootivo tariff and crliipln our nmnufactuiesi ,
nnd uino-tciiths of thn Irish voters of. ths
country responded with alacrity , "Ybe , wo
will do yonr bidding nnd vote as you please ,
even though it reduce our own wages nnd
take the bread frun the mouths of our chil-
drcn. " There are manv nblo mea nnd clover
UTi'turs aiming tha Irish in America , but
I ha\e noUT met one nblo enough and cluver
enough to evplalu this anomaly on any basiK
of logic ati't ' good honHo. I nm glad to HOO
froin your esteemed favor that the subject Is
beginning to trouble you. Tbo mure you think
of it the inoro you will bo troubled , 1 nin turn.
And youwill bodrlven finally to the conclusion
that the pio'perity of the Itish in this country
depends as largely as that of uoy other cliyss
upon the maintuinanco of the financial nnd in
dustrial policy represented by the republican
party. Very truly yours , J. G. BLAIJK. ;

MoNTaoMKBT , Ala. , AugQHt4. In the elec
tion throughout Alabama to-day tharo was no
opposition whatever to thq democrat ! ) on the
Btato ticket , and very little of a party charac
ter in any of the countjr contorts. In conse-
nuenca there was no excitement excnp't where f
cundidate.8 were- running in cjunUen that
trade no nominations , and these were many.
Thus thn local insuen of democrats brought
out a fair voto. Thu hottest fight was ia Mo
bile botwooa the democratic nominees and the
independent ticket and in
, Birmingham be at
tween the democrats nnd n combination be
tween the republicans and grconbackers.
These two points were tha battle grounds of
the state. Not half a dozen republican legis
lative candidates were running in the Btjto.
Tha yoto of this city won about 1,800 , nil
