Th Bt. Xuuia Glolw Democrat which
has been making scores of friend for
the administration whenever it is read,
by its infamous detraction of President

United State senate. The public are
Justly Surprised that this admission was
not accompanied by a mourntul display
of inverted column rules.
The next general assembly ot the
Prmbylerian church is to try to dis

According to the New York Tribune
the term "Stalwart Republicans'" was
first used by James G. Blaine in a tele

Hi we Englishmen were forced to ad.

it subsequently withdrew) in the Cus

New York Tribune: There are un

are statesmen to make any party strong
from the minute of Its birth, and they
are all out of a Job. For principles
there would be no lack. There is not a
man in J he lot who would not accept
every principle that a4 a vote attached.
With Conkling and Tilden as Bosses, the
new party could get under way at once.
