Mr. Seward’s Funeral.
lu Reference to Speaker Riaine,

’I lie Tribune on tlie Death of
New York, October 11.—Thomas Cun

bonds, was to-day sentenced to live years
in the State prison.
Jas. It. Spalding the founder of the
World, is dead.
Seward's funeral will take place Mon
The Tribune to-day editorially says it
takes pleasure in withdrawing, in the full
est and pronipest manner, its imputations
upon Speaker Blaine, in reference to sup
posed transactions with the Pacific Rail
road eastern division, being satisfied it
was his brother who was connected with
Fanny Fern is dead.
The Tribune says of Seward . To-day.
us the news of his death is telegraphed
over the world, it is no exaggeration to
say that in every court aad cabinet on
earth, the tidings will come with some
thing of a personal shock to tlie few who
govern the many. In the Republics of
Spanish America, tlie loss of a powerful
friend and patron will be mourned. The
statesmen of Europe will recognize the de
mise of almost the only American whom
they have ever regarded as their peer, and
in the farthest East,in the uttermost isles of
the sea, prayers will be ottered in strange
tongues, to alien gods, fur the repose of
the aged chieftain Whose white head and
broken frame casts such a wonder about
liis wide journeyings in the hamlets and
palaces of India and Niphon and Cathay.
After the death of Lincoln it was Sew
ard's faith in human nature, his confidence
that other men were, on the whole, as
good as he was, which) led him to believe
in and support the policy of Andrew
Johnson, for the immediate restoration of
tlie South. For this he sacrificed his po
sition in the Republican party, and, at
the election of General Grant without a
compliment of civility, left that depart
ment of State which lie had administered
during eight years with a wisdom, and
an adroitness, an unfailing courage, and
an industry hitherto unprecedented in our
annals, and which we may long look in
vain to see repeated.
Radicals Blowing up the Senti
Raleigh, October 11.—A terrible ex
plosion shook every building in the city
followed by an alarm of fire. The Sen
tinel office was lilown to atoms, by powder
placed under the building and presses. A
j small job press in the composition room
) which escaped destruction was examined,
and a paper of powder found under it
with a slow match which had been alight
ed, but had gone out. It is said that
about ten minutes before the explosion a
colored hoy, who lives near tlie office, saw
two individuals running off from the spot
in the direction of the depot witli hat in
hand. The Sentinel was a Conservative

flict of opinion.
Gamhetta's political tour and speeches
in the Provinces and assaults recently
made on tlie pilgrims who continue to
flock to witness the miracle of the Holy
Virgin, were regarded by some of the mem
bers ns likely to lend to trouble. Presi
dent Thiers expressed his indignation at
the outrageous treatment of the Pilgrims,
which ho regarded as an attack on the
Catholic religion and the national form of
worship. Ho warmly condemned the
course of M. Gambetta, who he said wus
trying to divide the nation aud rouder tlie
position of Hie government abroad more
Thiers, who seemed inclined to break
with the Left, still clung to the republic,
and liis posiiive declarations in favor of
that form of government were received
with laughter by tlie monarchists of the
The report that Prince Napoleon in
tended to return to France and possibly

momentous question involves especial consid

tlie very bone and sinew of our beloved South,
ho Ims taken special pains to make them feel at
