This Is strenuously denied by the Democratic leaders and they assart that the ballot boxes opened In court stay have been stuffed since the election in support of a corporation ouapiracy to steal the governorship, senate and pack the supreme which Is to be Increased from justices to seven on April 4ib text.

Governor Peabody has neglected to call a spec tal election to fill tbe vacancy caused by Senator Buckleys death, although ike constitution contains mandatory provision for such action. Through sabsequent decisions of the supreme and state board of canvassers, standing of the parties in the has been changed nntil it now eonsista of II Republicans and Ifi Dese ocrata, with one vacancy. The Republicans gained tbe two senators in this city by the rejection of the entire of five precincts in which frauds shown under order of the no attempt being made tu 1ft and count the legal ballots.

New York, Dec. 20. Churchmen Interested in the charges presented against Bishop Talbot have been considerably wrought up over the dispatches from Huntingdon, Pa., announcing that presenters living there whose names were affixed to ths charges have repudiated their signatures. A conference was called aud the new aspect of affairs was discussed. Dr. Irvine was telecalled up over the phone and the conversation which ensued is said to have been quite exciting. Herbert Noble, principal counsel for the presenters from tbe first opposed the giving out of the names. Ha expects to leave this morning for Philadelphia In connection with the matter. ha said, "I cannot understand, "what has prompted the action. I am certain that the presenters knew what they were signing, and they attached their names willingly. The presentment, after being signed, was enclosed in a letter from one of the Huntingdon men and was addressed to Dr. Irvine. I saw the letter. It stated that everyone of the signers was glad to do what he could to aid in the vindication of Dr. Irvine. I am surprised to hear that they now wish to recall their action. I doubt, however, if there will be aay delay in consequence. I refused to give out the names of the men who signed the presentment, on the ground that it might defeat the ends of justice to make their names public at this time. The names w ere obtained, however, from some source and were published. Now we are informed that five of the signers repudiate their signatures. I am not sufficiently informed as to the position of the signers to say Just what will be done in view of their attitude." long-distan- ce Philadelphia. Dec. 20.
