WHAT SHALL THEY DO?
j The-English Tories are about
as much at a loss to know what
to do with their recent elevation
to the control of affairs in Eng
land as are the DemocracUc re
surrectionists ' in Ohio.; ; They
have, for the first time since 1846
secured a sufficient majority to
really mark out a definite foreign
policy. The condition of the
army and the finances does not
warrant a : war policy, - besides
there is no country upon ' which
it would be popular or safe to
make raidj and to follow put
peace , policy does not please
them,, because that was adopted
by Mr. Gladstone's' administra
tion. The Tories begin tq. think
that they have drawn a, white
elephant in getting the govern

There is a marked falling off
in the German emigration to this
"country. ' The' number of emi
grants who landed at New York
.from the first of last January ' up
to the beginning of the present
month, was 2,067, against 5,146
for the corresponding period of
last year, showing a decrease , of
3,079. This notable falling off is
ascribed to two principal causes;
ice panic wnica swept over our
country. last fall, and hreught de
rangement and depression of the
labor market in its train; and the
large advance of wages in Ger
many, and thereby improved con
dition of the laboring class. While
the first cause is only a tempor
ary one, - which a ilT disappear
with the revival of business, the
second is of a more . permanent
character, and is likely to dimin
ish the volume of emigration for
some time to come.-
v-- The trade showing of the eoun
try since the first of January.'is
lull' of healthy premise . to the
business of the country. Says the
New York Herald: -. We have
imported since the first tyf Janu
ary merchandise to the amount
of . 170,686,652 In the . corres
ponding period ef, last year the
amount was $82,471,621. The
difference is nearly twelve mil
lions. The exports this year have
amounted to , $57,412,304. , Last
year up to the same date they
were $44,299,975. The difference
is $3,112,320. Thus the trade is
in our favor this year over that of
last year amounts to upwards of
fifteen millions. : If we can go on
in this way, and improve upon it,

FUNERAL OF SENATOR SUMNER.
The funeral of Senator Sumner
in the United States Chamber on
Fridayiast was one of the" most
impressive and saddening scenes
ever witnessed in Washington
Many as have been the Congress
ional obsequies held hitherto un
der the roof of the Capital,no oc
casion save -perhaps the funeral
of rVerident "Lincoln, 'has devel-
Loped .a feeling-, of personal- grief
rites over the remains of the Sen
ator who has so long and so n
bly represented Massachusetts in
the Senate.. It was. not merely a
thronged and showy funeral, at
which the set forms of obituary
ceremony were enacted, there
was in : the hearts of . that . vast
crowd a sense'of real unaffected
sorrow, a general feeling of riefl
as ef a great and irreparable loss.
The long procession of eminent
colored citizens, the near and de
voted colleagues of the deceased,
the men like Sherman andSchurz
and; Anthony,, felt keenly the
depth of their own and the na
tion's bereavement. It was such
a funeral as few Americans have
ever received, and answers more
eloquently than any possible eu
logy could have done the charge
that Senator Sumner was a man
of theories and had no hold upon
the .. popular heart ... There was
with all this something sad in the
utter desolation of domestic ties
amid which the great Senator
died. His physiciansiis personal
friends and his devoted house
hold servants alone soothed him
in his last moments. No . parent
pr wile or other relative closed
his eyes or followed his coffin."
His one surviving relative a la
dyresides in California, too far
away' to "be summoned to his
death bed or . his funeral. He
was literally a publicman,the son
and servant of the government
But notwithstanding all this he
is followed to the grave by mour
ners as sorrowful and sincere as
have ever testified their appre
ciation of. a valuable and well
spent life- ... ; ;. ,
A somewhat novel suit for the
recovery of ten thousand dollars
damages has been institute by
Cincinnati rolling mill company
against a former employee. The
plaintiffs allege that . they had
employed from one to two hund
red employees in their works for
more than five years past; but
that on the 1st of November last
this employee persuaded other
employees ' to leave their em
ployment, because they were dis
satisfied with the wages paid, by
reason whereof they have been
unable to carry on their foiling
mill from November until the
present time.: The company far
ther alleges that it employed men
to come from Pittsburg to work
in the null at . an agreed price,
and that the defendant sought
them out - and urged them to
leave and net work for the firm,
as they would be willing to do
but for the persuasion of the de
fendant, who stated to them that
if they would break their con
tract with the plaintiffs ' and go
away from the city the company
would be compelled to pay its
eld hands in Cincinnati the price
demanded; that the defendant
prevented them from commenc
iag work, and caused threats of
personal danger to be sent to the
workmen,causig plaintiffs a great
deal of 'delay in commencing
operations of their rolling miil,for
which they ask judgment in the
above amount. " We believe that
some two or three years aero.
suit of a somewhat' similar char
acter was decided by the Su
preme Court of Massachusetts in
favor of the . plaintiff. ' The pro
gress of the suit will be watched
with a good deal of interest, for
the principle invelved is one of
great importance. '
' The Massachusetts Senatorship
te nil the vacancy created by the
death of Mr. Sumner, is a ques
tion that will excite interest all
over the country. Already the
names of a number of candidates
ior the succession are suggested
and among themx Mr. Dawes,
Judge Hoar, ex-Governors Bui
reck and Clifford; . and General
Banks and Mr. Butler. The
election will not take place, in
probability, until next week. Mr.
Dawes was a prominent candidate
in opposition to Mr. Boutwell, to
fill Vice President Wilson's seat
in the Senate a few months ago,
but failing in an -election then
his claims may now be consider
ed as having a certain priority.
Either Mr. Dawes, Judge Hoar,or
ex-Governor Bullock, would be
strong men in-the Senate, and
would maintain the intellectual
prestige Massachusetts has al
ways had in. that body. We hard
ly think Mr. Butler has much
chance. - His connection with the
Simmons appointment hurt him
at home,and the way he has been
caught up in the Sanborn inves.
tigation has -damaged his reputa
tion, if it could be considered
susceptible of further damage.

DIDN'T DO IT.
Notices were sent to some of
the Cincinnati clergymen Satur
day that on Sunday morning
bands would be stationed outside
the church doors to interfere with
their "regular business of preach

bands. The churches were open

but the bands didn't come. They

CENTENNIAL AND MILLENNIAL.
Here we are worrying over the
method of celebrating our centen

whilst another ceontry is making
preparations for celebrating its

berly overgrown boy in his teens
in comparison with the sober old
grad father warming his toes ini
the boiling springs of the frozen
north. - Iceland was nine hund
red years old when the United
States was yet struggling in the
womb of time.
The belief is gaining ground
that Dawes will be the next Sen
ator from Massachusetts. Of the
numerous aspirants named there
is probably none better fitted to
occupy the place. He has long
and valuable experience as a leg
islator, possesses an intimate ac
quaintance with national affairs.
and is conspicuously committed
to economy in the management
of the finances a point of chief
importance now; and destined to
so continue, perhaps for years to
