"War is, iti'its'clf, characterized
by circumstances of indescribable
horror. To strew the resting places
of its victims, every year, with
tokens of affection, is an appropriate
national custom. Every returning
anniversary brings with it nature's
adornihohts for lull amUplain. It is
fit, then, that grateful' friends and
citizens should lavish, in a special
manner, these adornments upon
evcryjjpot containing the remains of
the noble men who left the soil of
the American Republic an undivided
heritage for all time, ami who placed
the star-spangled banner over mil
lions of a population liberated from
cruel bondage. In the great Ameri
can cities to-day, the graves, not of
millionaires, nor of titled aristocrats,
arc sought out for distinction, but,
for the most part, those or men
whose names arc unknown to fame,
and whose achievements will never
be obliterated from the grateful
memory of their countrymen. "While
the people boast of the great extent
of their country, they are not. un
mindful of the fact that the Union
had to be cemented in the blood of
thousands of its sons. That Ame
rica is a land of freemen from ocean
to ocean, and from the Uieat Lakes
to the Gulf of Mexico, is duo to
the struggle that called into exist
ence the Grand Army of the Be
public. The observance of Decor
ation Day is therefore more than a
sentimental memoiial of the dead;
it is a national acknowledgment of
the immense service these men ren
dered for the emancipation of the
living. It is a duty which the peo
ple of every country owe their native
land to perpetuate the remembrance
of men who faced the hardships and
fataliticSiOf war for the purposci of
establishing peace, and who secured
homes for others by "leaving their
own. fi'he American people arc
more mindful, probably, than any
other nation of the defenders of
their country. The present anni
versary has, by this time, become a
fixed institution. The bcrviccs and
doings of the day arc entered into
with all the national enthusiasm for
which Americans arc fumed. Wher
ever there is a citizen of tho.
Great Republic thioughout the
world, the day is certain of.
being, at least, duly, noted.
Members of the Grand Army df tho
Republic look forward to "it as a
sacred duty to join in doing honor,
to the memory of their departed
comrades. The anniversary may
well commend itself to every people
possessing tho boon of freedom. The
dissolution of the Republic in 1801
would have been a damaging blow
to civilization that perhapsccnturies
might not be able to tcpair. Wher
ever a people arc found Htrnggliiig
for representative and pomijaiyiristi
tutions, they instinctively point to'
tho United Stales as an Illustrious
example of the success of stjlf-gov-crument.
And the proudest vindi
cation of the principle of self-government
that tho wotld ever saw,
was the Civil War of 1861-5. The
men who threw their lives into tile
gap when the Union was temporarily
. t eminent that tho wotld ever saw, I-iObl.

The revised edition r the Old
Testament is out in London. The
correspondent of a oertnln New
Yoik newspaper offered SiOO for
simply an advance ropy of the Re
vised Old Testament at one Uni
versity publishing house. Tho
olllceis having the printing in charge
were obdurate In refusing the cor
respondent's request. One corres
pondent says ho was authorized by
his paper to spend $2,500 in tele
graphing the main features of the
new version. The first, orders for
the issiiu for the revision amounted
to over 100,000 copies. .
Two deaths from cholera were re
ported at Marseilles, France.
It is said the Spanish authorities,
that for a long time tried to conceal,
the Tact of cholera being in Spain,
have been exaggerating the good re
sults of inoculation with cholera
iniciobcs. The experiments having
been tried mainly on the . best and
cleanest living classes of people, arc
regarded by impartial critics as less
decisive than if tried on .the lower
A COM) wavi:.
A Vienna despatch of May 17th
says: A terrific snowstorm is pre
vailing throughout Austria and
Hungary. Numbers of persons
have been frozen to death, and the
crops generally have been destroyed.
A London despatch of the samo(
date says : Stormy and cold weather
is general throughout Europe. Much
damage to crops and property is
reported from many places. ,
Political interest in Paris centres
on the proceedings of the. Suez
Canal Commission. The English'
delegates refuse to admit the pro
posed international surveillance of'
the canal. Germany has shown her
self far more hostile to England
throughout than France. Italy has
been neutral in the surveillance
question, though she leaned toward
England. As the basis to their
opposition to England the German
delegates resuscitated the , first
counter proposal made in a, moment
of irritation by France after tho
issue of Granville's circular in 180.' ,
France subsequently made u second
counter proposal, which all the
Powers clearly understood to have
completely annulled the previous
one. The English delegates arc
convinced that even if an agreement
is reached on the point now at issue,
Bismarck will raise fresh difiiculties.

Irish Nationalists continue to de
nounce the Government for its pro
posals to renew the Crimes Act, and
nave icsolvcd to introduce' a bill
next year to reform tho administra
tion. The bill will establish the
central control of the. Hoard of Pub
lic Works at Dublin, and will super
sede tho present grand jury system
by elective county boards. Parnell
and Uealy will have charge of the
new Building Act in the next House.
Lord Randolph Churchill is re
ported anxious that the Conserva
tives should make common cause
With Farncllites and Radicals in re
sisting the Crimes Act. Lord Salis
bury, however, will not acquiesce
ill such aschcmc for upsetting the
Government. The Conservatives
represent property and Protestant
ism, and the real object of the Act
is to prevent such classes being
robbed and murdered.
