Valley of the Missouri. No large basins or
marsh grounds exist In lhat region as reser?

drains away at once, with nothing to retain or

or a drought over all the great plains.
-Illusti alive ot the ops and downs of this
life in general, and politics in particular, Thur?
low'Weed tells how some New Yorkers raised
a fund to defeat Fillmore in 1856, which was
given to him for '-judicious distribution." He
placed ten thousand dollars in bank to the
credit of bis partner, to be drawn out as lt
was needed. A few days after, the latter
dropped dead in the street The bank paid
over the money, in due process ol Jaw, lo the
widow. A year or two passed, and Mr. Fill?
more met and married the .widow-and the
ten thousand dollars.
-Boston claims to have the respectable
wing of the woman's rights party, violently
opposed lo Woodhullism, and it ls, therefore,
with some surprise that we find lu the papers
ofthat city a report of a recent discussion In
"Boffin's Bower," a reading-room,for young
workingwomen, on the subject of "free love."
No matter how strong the opposition againet
that doctrine was among the debaters, the
fact il self that there was a discussion among a
mixed audience of young men and women,
married and unmarried, on the claim of Mrs.
Victoria Woodhull to change her love every
day is of itself a sign of demoralization. Fe?
male modesty will not long survive such or?
deals. Miss Jennie Collins, the presiding vir?
gin of the Bower, thought that "In time the
world might be good enough for free love,"
but In the present Bl ate of society lt would
destroy all sanctity of the marriage relation.
-A Washington letter, of Tuesday, says :
"The opposition to the civil service retorm, as
Inaugurated by the administration, is growing
stronger every day, as ia shown by the out?
givings of senators and members. Senators
Chandler and Carpenter will probably address
the Senate this week in denunciation of the
new civil service rules, and will probably be
followed by others on the Republican side. A
discussion which arose in the House this after?
noon indicated the opposition of several Re?
publican members, especially Dawes and But?
ler, to the so-called reform. The former de?
clared that the civil service would be improv
. ed if the President made all appointments on
his own responsibility, and not on the recom?
mendations of members of Congress, while the
latter took tneopposite view, and maintained
that he believed he was Just as good a judge
as to who was suitable among his constituents
for public office as any three or f jur 'broken
down schoolmasters.' This reference to the
civil service board provoked no little merri?
ment The Budden end to the dispensation of
patronage has, no doubt, prompted this very
general opposition, while some of the party
managers fear that lt persisted In the new re?
form will seriously darmge political prospects
instead of promoting them, a3 was expected,
In the impending Presidential campaign.
-The Democratic Stat? central committee
of Missouri has Issued an address to the De?
mocracy ofthat State In reference to the cam?
paign of 1872. It may be denominated in brief i
as an eloquent plea for the doctrine of "pas
siviBm." The address first reviews the course
pursued by the committee in 1870 in abstain- j
lng from active participation in the State cam- j
paign. This course, though unauthorized by
the precise terms of the trust confided to the
committee's care, was Justified by the popular
demand among the Democratic masses, and
by the results, which were-as all will re?
member-a Republican schism, the triumph
of the liberal faction and Democratic
principles, the re-enfranchlBement ol many
thousand citizen?, and the inauguration
of "many reforms. The Democrats ot
Missouri, the a?or?sa continues, have
lound nothing to lament as yet lo the events
which followed the "spontaneous and Infor?
mal league'' between themselves and the Libe?
ral Reputiican minority. One has been the
readjustment of the party to the altered na?
tional constitution, and the surrender of ob?
solete and vanquished dogmas. From this the
committee argued by analogy that the like
beneficial results would flow from an absten?
tion ol the national Democracy from the Presi?
dential campaign. The evils lo be uprooted
the martial-law abuse, the frauds, thc incom?
petency, the tyranny-are certainly analo?
gous; and the committee urges the prompt ap?
plication of the Missouri remedy to the Buffer?
ing body politic. t.
-The friends of "home nile" for Ireland
have "carried the war lalo Africa." That is, j
they have very sensibly transferred the agi?
tation for home rule from the green isle to
England, and are holdlog meetings there to
complain of and demand redress for tho
wrongs committed against Erin. The ad?
vantages ol this course of action are two-fold
In the first place, no Irishman needs to be
told of the wrongs of his native land. It is
the first lesson he learns. Englishmen, how?
ever, can be told something many ol them do
not know of the haish laws which oppress
Irishmen, and the knowledge of lt, will
not increase their reverence for the
government which, Indirectly at least,
produces misery and social trouble, and
famine and crime in Ireland. In the
next place, there is more freedom of
speech on English soil than Is allowed the
Irishman at home. At the public meeling of |
Irishmen recently held in Liverpool in favor
ol ..home rule," sentiments were expressed
which in Ireland would have led to the arrest
of the speakers and the dispersion of the as?
semblage which applauded them by the police.
The most practical relief which has come to
Ireland, however, for many years, is the re?
cent division of the estates of the Marquis of |
Waterford, small portions of which were sold
at auction-from thirty to fifty years'purchase.
This is sensible, and if followed out both In
England and Ireland, would do much lor the
amelioration ol the condition of the farming
classes, for their poverty and neany all their
troubles are due partly to the character of the
land tenures and partly to grasping landlords.
The Strength of the Parlies.
That able exponent of Republican senti?
ment, The Nation, make3 a calculation as to
the comparative strength of the two parties
in this country, founded, first, upon the re
turns of the elections for the present House
of Representatives, aDd, second, upon the
result of the most recent State elections.
Without advancing an opinion as to the ac?
curacy of its figures, we abridge its state?
ments, as a matter of information and inter?
est to the political student According to
Hie Nation, the electoral vote of the country,
as represented by the last popular vote for
members of the House of Representatives, is
divided as follows, the number of electoral
votes set opposite each State in the table
being the number to which the State will be
entitled under the new apportionment bill,
which will probably become a law :
STATES IS WHICH A DEMOCRATIC MAJORITY OF
THE POPULAR VOTE WAS CAST FOR PRESENT
Electoral Vote. Electoral Vote.
Alabama. 9 North Carolina_10
Delaware. 3 Oregon. 3
Georgia. ll Pennsylvania.. 28
Kentucky. 12 Tennessee.ll .
Maryland .. M. 8 Texas. 8
Missouri. 15 Virginia.ll
Nevada. 3 West Virginia. 5
New Hampshire... 4 -
New York. 31 Total.175
STATES IN' WHICH A REPUBLICAN MAJORITY OF ,
THE POPULAR VOTE WAS CAST FOR PRESENT
New Jersey. 9
Rhode Island. 4
South Carolina.... 7
Republican imj'ty, 7
It will be seen that could these figures bo
taken as trustworthy, the Republican candi?
date would, out of tho whole number of the
three hundred and fifty seven electoral vote3,
receive a majority of only seven. Bat if we
suppose that either South Carolina, Arkan?
sas, Connecticut, Louisiana, New Hamp?
shire or California will cast its vote against
the candidate of the Republican party, his
opponent would have a clear mujority.
Under the old. apportionment, the above
table would show a Democratic majority of
the electoral vote.
Next, we have a comparative statement
of the strength of the two parties, as indica?
ted by the result of the last State elections,
STATES GIVING OEMOCRATIC MAJORITIES IN THE
LAST STATE ELECTIONS.
New Hampshire... 4
STATES GIVLVO REPUBLICAN MAJORITIES IN THE

Louisiana. 7 Wisconsin. 10
Maine. 7 -
Massachusetts. 13 Tolal.226
Michigan. ll 131
Minnesota. 5 -
Mississippi. 8 Republican maj'ly, 95
According to this statement, it will be
seen that the Republican candidate would
receive a majority of ninety-five electoral
.votes. But The Nation argues that several
States put down as Republican can by no
means be relied upon to cast a Republican
electoral vote in 1872. Among such States
are New York, Pennsylvania, California,
Connecticut, together with Louisiana, South
Carolina, and, perhaps, Mississippi. Shauld
New York, together with California, Connec?
ticut and Louisiana, or South Carolina, pro?
nounce against the Republican candidate,
his opponent would have a majority of eleven
electoral vote3. Should the four last-named
States, together with Pennsylvania, prove
Democratic, and New York Republican, the
Democratic candidate would have a mujority
of twelve electoral votes.
Flies and Servunfs.
Blessed are they that live in the zones
where little fire is needed. In the clime which
most American people inhabit; and with the
peculiarly noisome variety of servants which
prevails from Cape Cod to the Rio Grande,
life has come to be a most unlovely thing.
Fire is said to b9 a good servant but a bad
master. True to tho letter. But when bari j
servants are put to the making of worse
fires, the case is too distressing to be fitly
described in words. Fire at be3t we hold to
be a nuisance. In a properly regulated
planet there should be no need for other
heat than that which comes from the solar
ray. Rightly utilized, this heat would make
all climates temperate, and in midwinter the
caloric of the tropics, diffused in tubes, would
moko even the poles to blossom, and put
coal dealers to open shame.
In the first place, luel cost3 heavily.
Then chimneys smoke, stove pipes get dis?
located, and grates drop down. But the
maddening thing about lire is ihe kiudlinj
The fobbing o? a poker in a grate is simply
acvrrible. The ticuffiing to get cinders ont
of a stove is a fearful tax on human pa?
tience. The rattling of coals as they come
out of a scuttle is something that imperils
the immortal sou). Worst of all, these woes
come all together in accursed combination,
and at that precise time of the morning
when the least noise is unendurable. No?
body's temper is sweet at daybreak. And it
is needless to tell U3 that the . ordinary
human being who has to get up in the cold
ar.d make fires for otber extraordinary
beings, does so with any feeling but a fiendish
feeling. The restraining fear of the lash
might keep the fire-kindler within humane
bounds. Naught else on this earth. He J
jobs, and he rakes, and he scrapes, and he
rattles, and be clatters, with a diabolical de?
light. He has no idea of letting you sleep.
Not he. He'd see you further first. And as
the servant of the period is not going to im?
prove, we may count with certainty on a
rapid increase of these morning torments.
It avails notting to suggest a return to
the good old-fashioned wood fires. Possibly
you might get the wood, but the well-trained
servant who crept noiselessly in and out, leav?
ing you not to be awakened, but to become
dimly conscious of the crackling flames, and
then sink back into the ineffable second nap
-that servant is gone. He is dead as Hec?
tor; extinct as the Dodo; we shall see him
Anthracite coal is an abomination in the
eyes of gods and mea. But there are vari?
eties of woods. All is not seasoned pine,
hickory or oak. There is green wood-green
pine, for instance. 'Tis a grievous vegeta?
tion to the soul of man. Then there is the
sour wood, that sends out a sour smoke that
makes you weep os if you had lost your
nearest friend, and carse as if you had drawn
a blank in a lottery. Lastly, there is the
sobby wood, one two-borse load of which
dropped end foremost into the bottomless
pit would extinguish its fires.
No, there is no cure but in the economiza?
tion of the solar beat as already suggested.
But the day of that achievement is afar off.
Meantime we are all, servants, masters and j
mistresses, going to the bad. The temper of
coming generations will be the psychical
reflex of nitro-glycerine. Amiability In men
will depart. Sweetness in women will ab
Equatulate. The number of saints, present
and prospective, will diminish. It is a con?
solation to know that there is a place where
lires need no kindling, and that is all the
consolation there is in this matter.
