"the Herald representative."
-A camel Gatling gun, proposed to be

dia, to In course of trial by a select committee

two Inch bore, and to sufficiently light to be

camel without Inconvenience.
'"' -The Journals of St. Petersburg publish
some details concerning a type-Bettlcg ma?

they assert, fir surpasses all similar machines

-A distinguished German physician states

bumen, and coffee and tea, if highly sugared,
tend also to excite lt in adults.
! -The Chinese car te-de-visite is a curiosity.
It consists of a huge sheet of bright scarlet
paper, with the owner'B name Inscribed in
large letters-the bigger the more exquisite.
For extra grand occasions this card ls folded
ten times, the name ls written In ihe right
hand lower corner, with a humiliating prefix
like "your very stupid brother," "your un?
worthy friend who bows his head and pays his
respects," Ac, Ac, the words "your stupid,"
taking the place of our "yours respectfully."
It ls etiquette to return these cards to the visi?
tors, it being presumable tbat their expense is
too great for general distribution.
-The result of the municipal election in
St Louis, which occurred on the 2d instant,
to of some tigniflcance aa showing the un?
popularity of the administration in the West.
In 1868, both the city and county were car?
ried for Grant by a round majority. This
spring not one Bepublican was elected alder?
man, and only one was elected to the city
council. This single Republican councilman
owed his election to his being an anti-Grant
man as much as to the fact that he is a highly
respected citizen, and a popular official. The
administration party was defeated by a ma?
jority of nearly four thousand. Three years
ago that parly bud entire control of city and
county. The vote In detail shows that the
German vote in St. Louis Is lost to the admin?
istration; heretofore lt has been thrown almost
entirely for the Republican candidates.
-Croakers who fancy that ibis country Is
not advancing in prosperity, are referred to
the advance sheets of the ninth census. Those
dry looking columns are certainly more elo?
quent and conclusive on the points on which
they touch than any amount of "spread eagle"
oratory. In the first place, they show that
the total real and personal property of the
United States was $30,008,518,607 in 1870, as
again* t $16,159,616,068 in 1860, and $7,136,780,
228 In 1850. The percentage of increase in
wealth during the last decade is found by cal?
culation to have been over eighty-six per
cent., notwithstanding the immense diversion
ot productive energy and the enormous de?
struction of property consequent upon the
war. New York State, where both agriculture
and commerce are greater Interests than
manufacture?, gained iwo hundred and fifty
two per cent, rn wealth during the last decade,
and only seventy per cent, in the former one.
-The report of the judiciary committee of
.the New York Bar Association, which bas been
pressing the investigation Into the conduct of
Judges Barnard and Cardoza, sajB that al
though no direct pecuniary bribes are expect?
ed to be found, still they had traced presents
received from ' successful litigants and politi?
cal favorites. The power to iBsue lnjunc.lons,
appoint relerees, receivers, and make allow?
ances, the committee Btates, ba9 enriched
favorites, regardless of damage to other
parties. They instance the case of Jamee
Fisk against the Union Pacific Railroad,
which caused the loss of five millions of
dollars to the company, Judge Barnard
boasting of the terror the order created.
Another was the black Friday case, wherein
Barnard compelled the Bank of New York,
then insolvent, to pay all its assets, amounting
to $400,000, to brokers of Fisk, Gould & Co.,
and $15,000 to a receiver of his own appoint?
ment, leaving the other creditors without a
cent. The justification for this act is that the
plaintiff and bank officers consent id to it, but
the bank officers say consent was wrung from
them, and the bank suffered a loss of between
$200,000 and $300,000 within forty days. The
suit of the English stockholders of Bi ie against
Fisk & Gould, !n which John H. Coleman was
appointed receiver, !s another case. Within
one hour after this suit one Robinson, keeper
of the Erle Company's cattle yards io Jersey,
was appointed receiver in return for a loan ot
$3000, which he gave to Judge Barnard in a
check of Jay Gould, and which Barnard gave
to Coleman for some land speculation. Judge
Barnard also appointed a manager for a rail?
road eight hundred miles long, running
through three Western State?, and the result
was a loan of $2,000,000, from wbich the road
has never recovered.
The Ka-KlDX Cases in the Supreme
It will be Been by oar special telegraphic
dispatches from Washington that the argu?
ment upon tbe appeal to the Supreme Court,
in one of tbe Ku-Ktux cases, was com?
menced by Mr. Stanbery yesterday. The
two main points of tbe argument were that
the Enforcement act, while it might be con?
strued as giving jurisdiction in these cases
to the District Court, did not confer such
jurisdiction upon the Circuit Court, and that
Congress bad in the passage of the Enforce?
ment act exceeded the power entrusted to
it Dy that clause ol the Fifteenth amendment
which authorizes "appropriate legislation"
to prevent discrimination in the law of suf
rage "on account of race, color or previous
"condition pf servitude."
About Good Faith!
As we have said before, we deem a Com- <
promise at the State elections inevitable
?'Buch a Compromise as is implied in leav- ;
"ing Democracy in the background, and
"devoting all our time and energy to the
"election of honest and capable men, what?
ever their politics, their place of nativity, i
"or the color of their skin." To this state?
ment, the Columbia Union makes the fol- i
"How do they help Republicans elect their
best men to office ? Why, by abusing them
as soon as one ls nominated, whom Bepubll
cans are unfortunate enough to believe a good
man. The Democracy are the sole Judges in
s-ch cases, as they were here only a few dajB
since. The moment the Republicans put a
man In nomination whom they believe to be
upright, faithful, efficient and honest, that
moment the Democratic press ass ills him as a
thief, a dishonest man, a swindler or a 'car
'pet-bagger.' Toe last clause In the foregoing
extract from THIS NEWS sounds very well, but,
when the time comes to give it a practical
Illustration, that moment the Democratic par?
ty forgets that lt ever made any such promise.
Like Paddy's flea, you put your floger on
him and he isn't there. It ls useless to attempt
to hoodwink or mislead the colored people
any longer. They have Been enough already
to convince them of the Insincerity ot the
party wbich promises them so much. Actions
speak louder than words, and they have
waited patiently, but In vain, through seven
long years for these acts, while they have had
a surfeit of honeyed words and fine-spun
All this, as far as we know Ihe facts, is
conspicuously inexact. We fail to remember
a single instance in which the Democrats
denounced an "upright, faithful, efficient
"and honest" man, asa "thief, a swindler
"and a carpet-bagger." We do not think
that the Union can point out a solitary case
in wbich the promises of the white people
to the colored citizens have, been broken ;
and if it could do so, the isolated fault would
not convict the whites of systematic decep?
tion. Wherever the colored people have
given tho whites a trial, by working harmo?
niously with them, they have been thorough?
ly convinced that we make no pledge which
will not, as far as is possible, be faithfully
fulfilled. But this is outside of the question,
and does not meet the point at issue. The
conservative people ol the State are disin?
clined to make Party nominations. As a
State party they will, in all probability, with?
draw from the canvass, making the best
arrangements they can in the several coun?
ties. They refuse to become Republicans
themselves, and they do not ask the Repub?
licans to become skin deep Democrats. Their
proposition to the dominant-party is sub?
stantially this: "Nominate capable and bon
"est men, Republicans ii you will; and, as
"a party, we will not oppose them. Where
"a bad ticket is nominated, put a second
"Republican ticket in the field, with good
"names on it, and we will help you to elect
"that ticket." We do not see that there is
any room for foul play in this. And if the
better element in the Republican party means
what it says, we*shall have an opportunity
of proving our faith. The white people of
Charleston voted for Republicans at the mu?
nicipal election ; and they will do the same
thing again, if the right kind of Republi?
cans seek their suffrages.
The Cincinnati Convention.
There is a striking difference between the
political utterances of the New York World
and the New York Tribune. The former
paper has hardly made up its mind yet
whether it will, or will not, give the cold
shoulder to the Cincinnati Convention. It
shifts all round the compass in the course of
forty-eight hours, and when boldest, pro?
tects itself by an array of "ifs" and "buts,"
in the way with which the epistolatory vati?
cinations of Lieutenant-Governor Ransier
have made this public familiar. The Tri?
bune, on the contrary, has a fixed and set?
tled policy, and leaves no one of its readers
in doubt as to its position. Its masculine
enunciations are not always to our taste;
but we know where it stands, which is more
than any outsider ventures to say of its
Democratic rival. Upon . two occasions,
within the last fortnight, Mr. Greeley has
6poken plainly and to the purpose. In the
circular letter whlch.be signed, he gave bis
earnest approval to the Cincinnati Conven?
tion, and announced bis willingness to sup?
port tbat body upon a platform made np of
Amnesty, Civil Service Reform, a tarif! for
Revenne,and the restoration of the right of lo?
cal self-government And now be marks out,
with even sharper distinctness, the course
which the Tribune will take in the Presi?
dential canvass. Mr. Greeley says:
"1. If there shall be Democratic candidates
for President and vice-President in the field,
we purpose to support that Republican ticket
wbich seems most likely to succeed.
"2. If the main issue In the canvass shall be
Protection against Free Trade, we shall (no
matter as to the candidates) be found on the
side of Protection.
"3. Bul if (as we hope and expect) there
shall be two Republican tickets, and none
other, presented with any hope of success, we
shall favor that one whose election will be, in
our judgment, most likely to promote econo?
my in public expenditure, purity in legislation
and In administration, substantial unanimity
In upholding for all citizens a complete equal?
ity of rights under the law, and hasten the re?
turn of fraternal concord and mutual gosd
will between these who were arrayed against
each other in sanguinary strife throughout our
great Civil War.
"Such ls our position ; and it will not be af?
fected by the nomination ol A or B, C or D, at
Cincinnati, Philadelphia, or elsewhere."
This is all that we have a right to expect.
Mr. Greeley is a Protectionist by conviction,
and he will not support any organization
which makes Free Trade the main issue in
the canvass. But all Democrats are not
Free Traders, am! all Republicans are not
Pi.'eciionist8. The question of the tariff
is one npon wbich the battle should not be
fought-cannot be fought successfully. It
will settle itself in course of time; experience
and the spread of information will kill Pro?
tection more effectually than a political con?
test could do. Nor could we expect that
Mr. Greeley, a staunch Republican, would
support a Btraigbt Democratic ticket against
a straight Republican ticket. Upon all
material points, he is in full accord with the
Liberal Republicans and with the Lib?
eral Democrats. They alike demand
economy in public expenditure, purity in
legislation and administration, a complete
equality of all citizens before the law, and a
return of fraternal concord and good will.
Upon such a platform, and, wjth candidates
representing those opinions, the Cincinnati
Convention will, we doubt not receive the
enthusiastic support of all honest citizens
who are not actual or prospective office?
We desire, however, to impress one fact'
apon the leaders in the Cincinnati Conven?
tion. If they truly desire the defeat of
Grant, and the Buccess of the liberal move?
ment they must not ask too much from their
expected allies. This is a common cause,
and the Democrats are willing to give way
upon immaterial points if the Republicans
will do the same. Forbearance and Conces?
sion should govern the connells of the Con?
vention ; for, if tbat body adopt a platform
similar to that contained in Mr. Greeley's
letter, and nominate, besides, candidates
whom the Democrats can cheerfully accept,
the defeat of President Grant at the polls
will be both quick and thorough. _
As the first of May draws nigh, the public
interest in tbe Cincinnati Convention grows
deeper. The Democracy have done nothing
to embarrass tbe Convention. They await
its action with the earnest hope that it may
lead to the organized co-operation of all
worthy citizens for the purpose of achieving
the redemption of the Republic from the
evil bands into which il has lallen.
An Olive Branch.
(From tbe Columbia Union, of Friday.]
Tnt; NEWS of yesterday says some sensible
tbtngs in speaking of the present condition of
South Carolina ; but' the trouble ls, and has
been from the start, that what is said in ihe
newspapers amounts to absolutely nothing,
when a practical test is made. Now we are
quite well aware that Republicans have done
many things in this Stale which the party, as
a party, could not, and would not endorse.
Individual Republicans, like individual Demo?
crats, have been guilty of many things that
the party would not sanction ; and when we
have protested against such acts, no matter
by whom committed, THE NEWS, and other
journals of ihe same faith, have seen fit to
suspect our motives, and taunt us with insin?
cerity, Ac THE NEWS says :
"The parly which the Columbia Union rep?
resents can remedy our worst evils. We do
not ask them to surrender their advantages, or
to place ihe Government In Democratic nands.
It ls Immaterial lo the vast majority of the
people whetber|the State Government ls Ruli
cul or Democratic-provided thal it be capable
and honest. The white citlzeus are not dis?
posed, we Judge, tu hamper the Republicans
by making party nominations. Tnls time it
will not be posslole to throwley blame upon
the Democratic voters. The Republlcaosthave
tull sway, and upon them and theirs the whole
responsibility rests. We can and will help
them-ll they will put up candidates for whom
the taxpayers may Baleiy vote."
The Republicans can, as THE NEWS Ears,
"remedy our worst evils ;" but they can de lt
only In one way, and that is by selecting a bet?
ter class of men to fill positions of honor and
.trust, both lu our State und Municipal Govern- ?
ments. But the trouble ls, that when.we at?
tempt anything of this kind, TUE NEWS and all
its coadjutors throw cold water upon the
effort, and iefuse to assist in any way. If we
nominate men against whose character not
one word can be truthfully said, the cry of
"carpet-bagger" Is raised. THE NEWS, and
olher Democratic newspapers, can do much
toward correcting this senliment, and until
that ls done it ls useless to talk to Republi?
cans about strict party measures.

TER-NATTANS'S CRYSTAL DISCOVERY FOR
TUE HAIR.-A perfectly clear preparation In one
bottle, as easily applied as water, for restoring to
gray hair its natural color and youthful appear?
ance, to eradicate and prevent dandruff, to pro?
mote the growth of the hair and stop its falling
out. It ls entirely harmless, and perfectly free
from any poisonous substance, and will therefore
take the place of all the dirty and unpleasant
preparations now In use. Numerous testimonia s
have been sent us from many of our moat promi?
nent c.tlzenB, some ef which are subjoined. In
everything in which the articles now In use are
objectionable, CRYSTAL DISCOVERY ls perfect.
It ls warranted to coutalu neither Sogar of Lead,
Sulphur or Nitrate of Silver, lt does not soil tile
clothes or scalp, ls agreeably perfumed, and
makes one or theist dressings for the Hair In
use. It restores the color of the Hair "mord per
feet and uniformly than any other preparation,"
and always does so in from three to .ten days,
virtually feeding the roots of the Hair with all
the nourishing qaalltles necessary to its giowth
and healthy condition; lt restores the decayed
and induces a new growth of the Hair more posi?
tively than anything else. The application of
thia wonlerfnl discovery also produces a pleasant
and cooling effect on the scalp and gives the Hair
a pleasing and elegant appearance. Price $1 a
