ILL HEADS, FOR THREE DOLLARS AND A
half a thousand at th* JOURNAL JOB UsiFiUß I
Business opens this spring with a much
more promising aspect than it did a year
ago. Thero is a moro general feeling of
security and confidence. Our national
finances arc in a better condition, taxes
are lighter, our credit is stronger, and
there is less tendency to speculative in
vestments. We aro getting more nearly
down to tho stable level of healthy busi
ness before tho war. Business men from
all sections of the country have been for
some time making their purchases in our
larger cities aud preparing for the com
ing season's operations. The representa
tion is general, and although tbeir pur
chases are not quite so heavy as during
tho last few years, tho indications are
that at least an average business will be
dove ou a safe basis. Prospects may
not be so large, but risks will be less,
nnd business will be healthy.
Such is the condition which we have a
last reached under the good managemen
of President Grant's administration. Tb
approach has been gradual, and at time
our people havo been inclined to complai
because stability did not come soone
But, wheu they reflect, they will see tha
the transition from a speculative state o
business, produced by a tremendous civi
war, to a sound and trustworthy one, ha
been very rapid. Less than six years i
but a short time in which to get rid of th
principal financial evils of such a coutes
as that from which wo aro now recoverini
Thoy could not have been safely overcom
io a shorter time, and to havo attempted
more rapid change from speculative to real
prices would have produced most disas
Money is now easy, and there is nothing
which looks like an approaching crisis—
such as the Democrats havo long prophe
sied and fondly wished. It is probable
that tho demandfor money with which to
make the usual spring settlement, may
produce a little stringency. But there
will be nothing which it will not be within
the power of tho treasury to remedy by
the increased purchase of bonds, if needed.
After this point is passed, there will be no
extra demand for money until the fall
crops are ready to move.
Contrary to expectation, neither the
opening uor close of tho European war has
caused an extra demand for American
grain, and the hitherto speculative move
ment is subsiding. But, if there is no
extra demand for grain, our shipmonts of
cottou bid fair to be considerably increased.
Tho German market especially demands
an iucreased supply of cottou. Our ex
ports of this staple havo for some time
beou light, but the advance in price lias
made our money receipts from this source
quite up to the full average.
Certainly, no business man, who looks
cimly and without bias over tho financial
and commercial condition and prospects of
our country, can conscientiously say that
tho policy of President Grant's administra
tion has not proved successful and satis
factory. It has wrought no miracles—un
less it be in demonstrating the perfect
roanageableness ofthe public debt, no part
of which the Democrats said could be paid,
while a large portion of them favored re
pudiation—but it has reached practical re
sults in a plain, common sense, business
like way, and placed tho finances and bu
siness of tho country whore an easy solu
tion of all difficulties is possible and like
ly soon to be realized.

The Demonstration Last Night.—
The Republican ratification meeting last
night was probably the largest political
demonstration evor witnessed in this city.
The gathering was not only immense in
numbers, but thero was no little signifi
cance in its composition. It was made up
of all classes of the community ; of white
and colored in about tho respective pro
portions they bear to each other iv the
population ; of business men, mechanics
and laborers ; in fact it was a thoroughly
representative meeting of tho people of
Washington. To accommodate this vast
throng there was speaking from no less
thau five different stands, and the enthu
siasm manifested reminded one of tho old
Harrison and Clay times, wheu Washing
ton, an intensely Whig city, used to turn
out en masse at Tippecanoe aud Mill-boy
Tbe succession of this same Whig element
was probably present last uight, for it has
never taken kindly to tho name of De
mocracy. One thing is certain, that never
before at a Republican meeting in Wash
ington was there so many whites present,
by thousands, as on last night. A meet
ing of this size and character settles the
issue of the campaign. It was a larger
meeting than the great Reform party rati
fication meeting one year ago, when tbat
party swept the city by about 4,000 ma
jirity; and making an estimate from the
comparison afforded, tho Republican ma
jority this year should at least equal that
of the Reform party following upon the
ratification meeting last year. But half
tbat will do.
A Shocking Fate.—A young lady
named Minnie Tully, about eighteen years
ol age, met a most horrible death at Fletu
ington, N. J., a few days since. She was
visiting at tho house of Harvey Bartles,
and the family being absent, she went to
an adjoining field, where two of Mr. Bart
les' sods were at work gathering brush.
She klLtlled a fire iv one of the heaps, and
in so (Ling, sot fire to her clothes. With
the assistance of tho young men the (lames
were extinguished, as they supposed, aud
she went into the house. In a few mo
ments Bhe rushed out again, her clothes all
in Haines, and before assistance could reach
her she sank to tho ground, so terribly
burned that death occurred in a few hours.

A MAN'S ARM TORN FROM HIS BODY-NAR
ROW ESCAPE OF HIS LIFE.
Lynchburg, April 16 —11 A. M.—A dis
tressing accident occurred hero this morn
ing, which will prohahly cause tho death
of a worthy citizen.
As the employees of a box factory were
about commencing woik, Mr. Jabez R.
Wray took his position at a pulley, at
tached to the main shafting, to adjust the
belt en it, and in doing so pushed it too
far, and while attempting to pull it back
to its proper position, his right hand was
caught in between tho pulloy and bell,
and his entire arm from wrist to shoulder
was mangled in a most horrible manner,
literally tearing tho arm off at the elbow
joint, aud leaving it hanging to the belt.
Mr. Pikeson, tho engiueer, hearing the
jarring of the machinery, aud tbo jumping
ol the saw-table attracting his attenlion,
knew at once that something was wrong,
and instantly stopped hia engine, which
alone saved Mr. Wray's life at the time.—
He now lies in a critical condition, with
but little prospect of recovery. Mr. Wray
is esteemed as ono of our best citizens, and
the unfortunate accident has awakened tbe
sympathies of the people to a large extent.
He is 65 years of age, and has a wifs and

Prof. Logan teaches, nightly, at Virginia
Last night, at his lecture on "Health
Beauty," he imparled a fund of useful
ledge. He Baid that nine out of every
ases of sickness could bo avoided, if peo
nly knew how to live. Those who violate
iws of nature cannot escape punishment
auy more than if they violate the moral law.
He explained the value of fresh air, advised
his hearers to keep their sleeping rooms well
ventilated, to breathe deeply, and bathe fre
quently. Coldblooded people should use tepid
water, while warm-blooded people may
use cold water. Cold water and fresh
air strengthen tho body, brighten
the mind, beautify the face, and purify the
soul; they are the very best cosmetics. He
said that without health there can be no beau
ty, and ladies that desire to appear as beauti
ful at noon day as they do by tbe glare of the
ball-room gas-light, must study the laws of
nature and abide by them. He advised people
to eat plenty, but not to eat in a hurry; fast
eating leads to indigestion and dyspepsia. Con
versation at the table should be light and
cheerful. Ho ridiculed the eating of pork
and sausages—pork engenders scrofula—the
use of it leads to gronsness. Those liable to
dyspepsia, should live on Graham bread, fruit
and vegetables. His rules for preserving
health he illustrated wilh many lively anec

leaving the cars at Hollywood, yesterday, we I
observed two colored boys driving a black cow
fiom the green pasture to a lot adjoining, re
cently plowed, when one of the boys threw
half a brick at her, striking ber behind Ibe
horn, breaking it. Not satisfied with this
piece of cruelty, he picked up tbe same brick
and threw it with all his force again at the
poor animal, striking her at or near tbe same
place, killing her instantly. The names of tbe
parties could not be ascertained, as they fled ;
they could, however, be easily recognized, if I

Heard ot since tho war. Being connected with
one "'the largest establishments in the city of
yew 1 ork, Devlin has ac advantage which is
not possessed by most merchants in bis line of
onsiness. lie is kept constantly stocked with
the very latest styles in fabric and makeup,
with goods always fresh, and selling at a small
advance on cost, hia shelves are never hampered
wiih worn out styles and inferior articles.
This is one secret of his great success in busi

and fair dealing of himself and assistants, is
sore to be rewarded with a golden harvest.
