I lo ml Itobbcries,
Every dny or two wo havo to rocord a new
enso of robbery of bonds of tho United States,
or of railroad and other corporations, and
similar valuable securities. Tho Immense
number of pontons who during tho poet few
years havo bocomo owners of this hind of
property, nnd tho llttlo experience which tho
majority of them havo had In Inking enro of
It, serm to ntlunl an opportunity for tho ox
cretFo of the peculiar talent of tho light fin
gered gentry, of which thoy aro not Blow
to avail themselves.
Tho most rematknblo festuro about these
rohlierics la tho audacity with which inott of
them nro committed. In nearly every In
p.tnnco tho article ttnleii havo been taken
nlmost from under the very eyes of tho per
sons who had charge of them. Mr. Lord's
safo w-aa emptied of Its proclous contents
while ho cat In his olllco within n few feet of
It. Tin- Great Western Insurance Company
I lost thelrbonds from an Inner room, occupied
nt tho tlmo by ono of their superior olTlclalB.
In other instances, bonds havo been removed
from tbo counters of moneyed Institutions
whllo clerks were engaged In making u note
of their denomination nnd numbers. Only
last Thursday n 1kx full of them was
slily slipped out from under tho arm of tholr
owner without his perceiving his loan. Tho
rnses In which houses have been entered In
tho daytime, and tho bonds abstracted from
Hecrot hiding places, aro also numerous ; lio
bUIim which, wo havo heard of several mys
terious disappearance, of which no explana
tion has over tuen given. Ono gentleman,
who kept ii quantity of 7.110 notes in n box at
tho Hafo Dopoilt Company, took them out ono
day when tbo coupons were payuble, nud put
them back r.gain. A short tlmo afterward,
lie wont for litem to tbu liox, nnd found they
wcru ini"lng. Ho Is sure he put them In,
nnd to this day does not know how thny got
out. l'robnbly the adroit thief practiced on
him ouo of thotio tricks by which slelght-of-bund
performers Mini no tho public, nnd led
htm to think ho had placed tho papers lu tho
box when he had not.
Indeed, tho general plan on which tho
lioldeet of thewo robberies Is committed Is
preclivly that of tho prestidigitator. Tho
victim Is marked when ho litct gets tho cov
eted nrtieles Into his posbcbslon, and Is con
otuntly watched nnd followed until ho tin
guardedly oxjioscs himself. Ifo lays down
his package, for Instance, while ho elgns his
nanio lu u boob, or buttons his cent, or for
soinu other purpono relinquishes his hold
upon it. Instantly it Is snatched up and
silently withdrawn, and before Its nbtcncols
noted, the thief is lost lu tbo crowd. Or, the
bonds aro placed In a spot supposed to bo be
yond tho rosch of uutnutworthy hands, but
it pretext is mado for coming closer to them,
nnd they nro spirited away lu tho twinkling
of an eyo. Tho men engaged In this busluebij
must pomess great patience nnd knowledge
of human nature, with a dexterity which ono
Mould think might bo turned to an equally
profitnblonceount in nomo lionet way.
It is to bo hoped tbnt with thef-e numerous
warnings in their minds, thoso of our readers
who may bo lucky enough to own bonds of
any kind, or havo them in their keeping, will
be on their guard ngnlnst being robbed of
them. Tho utmoct vlgihuioo should
bo exercised wherever it Vonuis no
nocewmry to oxpoue the documents even to
tho night of ftrungers. To curry th"m looooly
In the baud, or to lay them down ujion
table or dok where they mny bo roni-hcd
by any lmsser-by, is to invite depredation.
And, whenover tho couions uro to bo cut oil',
it should bo done in a private apartment, or
only among persons known to bo worthy of
confidence. The danger of ultimate loss,
too, being confined to coupon bonds payable
to bearer, it is wlsn to cunveit bonds of that
form into registered certificates. Coupon
bonds are precisely Ilka bank noton, nnd
when once purebofcod lu good faith by an
Innocent verson, without actual notico that
I tiiev nru stolen, thev cannot bo recoverod.
Hegietered certificate s, on tho conlrnry, nre
entered on the books of tlio United States
TrcnKury or tho company issuing thcni, ns
tho enso may bo, and tbo loaj of tho ceitltl
cato docs not impair tho right of tho lawful
owner to cither Interest or principal. The
only Injury ho sufl'era is tho iiiconvenienco of
waiting and advertising for u new certificate,
in cato it is desired to sell his property.
Shall wo havu Iloncut Voting ?
Tho Hcpubllcnus accuse tho Democrats of
proparlng wholcsalo frauds to bocousunimat
ed In the election of to day. Some prominent
Democratic politicians havo been arrested and
held to ball for dealing lu fabw uaturnlUa
tlon papers. Somo havu been Indicted, and
tho air la full of rumors and reports of great
schemes to defeat tho will of tho people by
returning candidates who have net been hon
estly elected. On tho other hand, Mayor
HOVFIUN, going beyond tho limits
of his duty as n public magletrato,
has Issued his proclamation charging
tho Kcpubllcans with a general design to
cheat, and offering a reward of euu hundred
ilollors for tho arrest nnd conviction of every
pf won who shall vloltto tho election laws rif
the State, nnd a liko sum for tbo arret and
ronvlrtion of every ono charged w,tb bit ml
ilnt ng, obstructing, or defrauding any voter
in the exercise of his right.
No doubt thero is truth In these trcii
tlons on 1Mb sides. Wo all know that thero
aro corrupt and bad men In both parties, who
would win nn election by fraud rather thnn
lose It by honesty. That ono party la Inlr'nsi
cally woreo thin tho other In this respect wo
do not believe, but wo judge that In the pr-v
ent case ft greater weight of blamo ought to
bo laid upon tho Democratic politicians than
uiou their adversaries. Their coso is more
desperate, tho slnko for which they nro con
tending Is that or llfonnd tlentlt for tholr
party, nnd In tholr unpromising situation
thoy havo too readily taken tho ndvlco of evil
counsellors. Tho fact that regular natnrall
zntlon papers havo been furnlshod by Demo
cratic politicians to men who wcro not only
not lawfully entitled to them, hut who havo
never bocn brought beforo tho Court whoso
cortlflcnto thoy purchased, cannot bo denied.
This necessarily excites suspicion nnd alarm.
If such bo tho enso with fivo men, who can
bo suru that It Is not tho caso with fivo thou
sand? Tor all this tho Doinocracy is Justly
held responsible, tho fact having been judi
cially established. It mny bo that thero aro
Itepubllcanswho nro equally wickod and un
scrupulous, but they havo not been detected !
tho outcry against them has no such solid
basis of proof to rest upon.
The lemo.i of these revolting and dlitrcfs
Ing occurrences Is plain. They teach us that
now safeguards aro rcquls'.lo to securo tho
honesty and purity of the ballot. Tho dnnr
for tho commission of Buch frauds must lw ef
fectually dosed. Not oi ly must thoso bo
punished who tnv now bo proved to havo
been guilty, but ricans must bo discovered
and applied to stop fraud without obstructing
tho luitust voter If the Iniquity now com
plained of Is allowed to go on, thero Is nn end
to republican Institutions. If wo nro not to
cbooso our L makers and admln'strntivo
olllccrs by u fair expression of tho majority,
but must tnko thoto whom tbo stuffcm of tbo
ballot boxes may chooso to glvo us, wo nro
lost In tho moht atroclnui and disgusting
kind of dorpotlsm.tho despotism of sheer ras
cality, of robbers and of thieves.

Not formally years has thero been nioro
intense excitcuicut at any election than there is
to-day. The partisan feclinc Is to ftrnng and
earnest i I'uih sides, that a slight cause euld Uu
die a ti that might result in very rcrious and
widosproud dis-itter. Uuder such circumstances it
behooves every good citizen, every lover of or
der, to bo unusually cureful about doing any thing
to introduce trouble at tho polls. Many persons
fear tbo day mil not pad without riots nud blood
shed; but it usually occurs that whcio such
tbiugs uro looked fur they do not happen. To bo
forcwaiued is tu bo forearmed j and tu be fore
armed is to feel the aolcninlty of responsibility.
Wo think, therefore, as wo sincerely hope, that in
tplto of tho omlnout signs, the day ss ill past
quietly and without discredit to the city.
For a long tlmo tho thcoty has been gen
erally accepted among scieutlllo men that the
light lu luminous flames was dus to tho
presence of incandescent solid particlos. The
gas no burn In our boiiaes, for instance, differs,
it bus been supposed, from putc hydrogen simply
by its containing solid curbon, which, when ig
nited. Lit vs out a brb-'ht HuUt, the Camo of pure
lijdrogcn being scarcely visible. This atsnmp
tlon bis been controverted by Professor Fnisi
i.txu of Loudon. He shmrcd in a lecture, which
ho delivered lately bvfore tin Itoysl Institution ef
Urent Ilrltaln, that there are many flames pos
sessing high degree of luminosity which can
not possibly contain solid particles. Thus the
flame of metallic arsenic burning in oxygen emits
a remarkably Intense white light) and me
tallic arsonlo rolatlllzMst 190 do?. C, and Its pro
duct of combustion, arsenious anhydride, at 213
dcg. ft, while the temperature of Incandcs
ceuco In solids is at least 600 deg. 0.
Tho rrofettor't own theory Is, that the
luminosity of gas and candlo flsmes Is due to
radiations from dense but transpstcnt hydro
carbons, nhd that, generally, dense gases emit
moro light when burned tbsn rare ones. To
prove this, he msdo tome cspcrlments on the
combustion of Jets of hydrogen and csrbonlo oxldo
In oxygen under a prcsturo gradually Increasing
to twenty atmospheres. Thcso experiments,
which were conducted In the Isborntory of the
lloyal Institution, were made In a strong wrought
iron vessel furnished with a thick glass plate of
sufficient (lie to permit the optical examina
tion of the flume. The appearance of a Jet of
hyd cgen burning In oxygen under tho ordinsry
atmospheric- pressure was exhibited. On increas
ing the pressure to two atmospheres, the pre
viously feeble luminosity was shown to bo very
markedly augmented while, tl ten atmospheres'
pressure, tbo light emitted by a Jet about ono
Inch long tvas amply sufficient lo enablo the ob
server to read a newspaper at a dlstnnco of two
feet from the flnme, and this without any reflect
ing nit face behind tho flame. If the results of
thoso experiments nro Yerified by the observa
tions of other scientific men, tbey n 111 establish
a very Important point.
Tho great question lo lio decided to-day
will be settled lu short metre. In this State, the
hours In nhlch ballots can be polled will be few,
while tbo work to bo accomplished it Innnen-c.
The polls will open at sunrise, OtilO, niul close at
sunset, -tSl, In the space of ten hours and
fifteen rnitiules, the lute of the nation for the
next four years must be determined. M no
(lllicn, then fore, fail tn vote nt ns early an hour
us possible. All bilsim-st should bo dufcrred J
until this great public duty is discharged.
Considerable excitement has liona crentod
lstdy in l'.ngland and France by the ftSaJsJcnl In
stance's In which eruptions have broken out
tiMiu the skins of persons weutlug ted nad jellow
worsted rocks nnd undergarments, supposed to
be caused by tho lUctlufl's used In giving theto
goods their gay colors. Chemical analysis shows
that tho dye lo which this effect Is altiibuled is
a form of the new subtlunoe aniline, extracted
fioin pelrolcum, which in icrtaln cases is de
composed by tho perspiration, mid then poisons
the tissues of lb tkiu. It is not every one, how
ever, to whom lids happens, because it icpilret
an unusually alkaline quality of the perapttutlnn.
Still, there Is undoubtedly a certain amount of
risk, which might as well be avoided.
Wo nro glsd to antmuueo tbnt there Is no

U. 8. Infantry from Fort Leavenworth to Fort Kear

to Fort Laramie, where the Indian Conned of 1 SCO
wss In session, stthoogh at the time many of His In
dians had lift with avowedly hostile Intentions
toward the fnltcd Mites Government. From Furt
Laramie the rc;lmcnt went tu 1'urt Iteno, and from
that place to tbe spot selected as the silo ef Furt
l'lnllp Kearny. Tho new fort was ipcedily estab
lished, and there or In tbst vicinity the writer sts,ed
for little less than a year, within which period oc
enrred the msssscro of Col. Fcttcrmun, on the 31st
of December. This was by no mesns the only trs

travellers, or tmsll psrtlcs of soldiers, were st Inter

In camp lived In a state of restless watchfulness.
The pernllsrltles of Indian warfare are such as
scaro ly to bo within the comprehension of those
who hare not been spectators of the savage life from
which It springs. The author strongly advocates a
compact between the Crow Indians and tho United
8'atcs against tbo other tribes. The Clow", whom
she declares to be a line, manly, and honest race,
have been driven from thtlr own lands by tho Blonx
snd Che venues, who have proved treacherous also to
the white msn.
The notion that the primitive Indian arms are use
less In a contest with srmed soldi' rt has been proved
a mistake. Wciona which might be Ineffectual if
the savages wouldjconscnt to fight areordlng to tho
rules of ordinary warfare, are exceedingly dangtrotis
whtn employed In their peculiar fashion. The
Indian only attacks hit enemy when ho Is himself
protected, and when the foe Is at bis mercy. Then,
at adlsnnee of flliyyirdi, Iron-pointed nrrowa nre
sure and powerful missiles, They can be Cred more
rapidly than a revolver, and at abort range
will enctrate farther throagh ttmlicr than
the hsllel of nn ordlnnry Colt's pistol.

A curious quesllun is ponding In Hadsbttry,
Perm. C. Puey Thome, son of .1 Wltllsm Thorne,
came of age on the day of the October election this
year. The Democrats, onxloua to exclude every Its
publican ballot, challenge! his vote upon the ground
that ha was not born un.UT o'clock In the evening,
at which time tbo law provided that tho polls should
(lose. It was argued on behalf of the tppllc-tnl that
tbe law recognised no fraitb nt of days, and that he
was entitled to vote, tvel though he had not bren
born until II o'clock and 60 minutes 1', M, on said
day. The Democratle election oSlcers, however,
contended that he must be betwraen the nge of 81 and
2 years, and that ho would not have reached that
period until tbe hour of seven bid passed. In reply
to Ibis, Mr Thorne, senior, ssked the oClcera If they
recognised 80.1 dsys sud 8 hours as a year, and they
replied that they did. He then showed that six leap
years had occurrtd la tho lifetime of his son; and
farther mathematically demonstrated that bo had
lived 31 times SU diys und 0 hours, and bid 1! hour
to spare. This rather dumbfounded the oSccrs, but
they still declined tn accept tha ballot. At three min
utes before 7 o'clock the ltcpubllcan Judge took the
ballot and deposited It In the box.
