The Origin of I lie Trouble Be
tween the Floriuu .State
A dispatch to the New York Times
The trouble in Florida between
Governor Reed and bis opponents has
a curious origin. Both factions are
Republican f that of Governor Reed
is moderate and practical, and looks to
putting the party on a basis which
will keep it in the ascendency in the
State. The other facton, ied by Lieuf
tenant-Governor Gleason, Jenkins and
a few others, is composed of a set o
hair-brained extiemists who care for
nothmg but personal gain, and who
will kill the party unless they are
kicked out of it. When the
Government ot the State was framed,
the Republicans thought they would
make a sure thing of it for a number
ot years at least. They, therefore.'
provided that the Governor should
hold office for six years, and invested
mm with the appointment of a great
many officers including most of the
county officers in the State. It is be-
cause Governor Reed has not used
this power in the interests of the ex
tremists that the attempt is now made
to impeach him. The Legislature
which passed the resolutions had as
sembled on the 3d. solely foV'the pur
pose of choosing Presidential electors,
and a quorum was not present when
the resolutions were passed. Governor
Reed of course, resists the illegal and
preposterous procedure. Both he aid
Gleason, the Lieutenant Governor, are
originally from Wisconsin. Reed is
an old journalist, a man of intellect,
ability and experience in public affairs,
Gleason, who was a lumberman in
V\ iscoiis n, is a man of very ordinary
calbre, *ud would be doing his country
and State far better service on his
plantation at Indian River catching
terrapins than in running an impeach
ment machine at Tallahassee.
Decision by Commissioner Rol-
INS, —Commissioner Rolins has just
decided a case of considerable interest.
About a year ago John and Wm. Mat
tingly were convicted in the United
District Court at Louisville, Ky., of
fraudulent returns in the matter of
4,000 gallons of whisky, and fined the
extraordinary sum of $32,000 or quad
ruple the amout of the tax. The case
was carried to the President, who,
upon the evidenco submitted, believed
them to be innocent, pardoned them,
and ordered the fine to he remitted.—
Six months afterward the assessor
again made an assessment based on
the judgment of the court in the crimi
nal prosecution. The Mattinglys paid
the amonnt under protest, asserting
their case was covered by the action
of the President, and appealed to the
commissioner for redress. The com
missioner decided the case in their fa
vor, which was approved by the Sec
retary of the Treasury, who on Fri
day last ordered a warrant to be issued
to their attorney for the amount paid
Important Trial iu Virginia.
Richmond, Nov. 17.—1n the United
States district Court this morning, the
trial commenced of the habeas corpus
case, in which the counsel for Cmsor
Griffin, sentenced to the penitentiary
for shooting a white inan, asked his
release, on the ground that Judge
Sheffery, who held tie Court, was
intelligible under the Fourteenth
Amendment. The decision of tLis
case will affect nearly all Judges iu
the State, and make void or confirm
all legal business transacted by them
since the proclamation of the adoption
o!j the Amendment.
Nashville, Nov. 12. —Senator
Cate, of Hamilton county, introduced
preamble and resolution in the Legis
lature to-day to the effect that ‘Where
as, D. W. C. Senter, Speaker of the
Confederate Legislature of Tennessee,
under Isham Garris, and had favored
many acts oppressive to the Union
people, and had been clearly guilty of
conspiracy and treason against the
Federal Government. And that,
whereas, he was clearly ineligible to
hold office under the third section,
fourteenth article of the amendment
to the Constitution, and all acts that
he had signed as Speaker were illegal;
therefore, the Speaker’s chair should
be declared vacant, and the Senate
proceed at once to the election of a
new presiding officer.” This docu
ment created a great deal of excite
ment in the Legislature, and was to
tally unexpected. It lies over for one
day, when a storming lime is anticipa
The Lady of the White House.
—ln connection with the election of
General Grant to the Presidency, and
only second to it in point of interest,
is the promotion of Mrs. Grant to the
position of “Lady of the White House.”
It is gratifying to think that the po
sition is one which Mrs. Grant will fill
with the true simplicity of an American
woman. There will be no attempt to
ape the grandeur of a regal court and
no vulgar striving after more sensation.
Mrs. Grant is a lady who bas main
tained through every event which has
marked the vicissitudes of her hus
band’s file a marked propriety of de
meanor. She has been helpmate in
days of adversity, and lias shared
his honors without being dazzled by
the position or contaminated by the
fooling adulations cf those who wor
ship at the shrine of success. — Boston
The foreign scientific journals report
that, recently, large and most impor
tant discoveries of coal have been
made in Russia. The mines of one
district alone are, according to the
Saint Petersburg journal, Golos. capa
ble of supplying anually 40,000 tons
for one huudred and fifty to two hun
dred years. Since ISG4 there have
been surveyed in the valley of the
Don forty-two beds, the aggregate of
which is estimated at more than eigl -
teen millions of tons. r lhe Golos as
serts that the mineral wealth of
Russia far exceeds that of England,
and; at thb same rate of production,
would last for two centuries after the
English mines had been exhausted.
