NAPOLEON'S THREE WARNINGS.
A Strug Stiry of tbe Qrttt Conican, as Nir
taUd by Foncbe.
Tbe celebrated Koucbe, Duke of Otranto,
sometime chief of police of Napoleon, was
retained but a t-hort time, It U well-known,
in the crviic of the iiottrhons, after their
re-toi.itlon to tbe tbrone of France. lie re
tired to the town of Alv, in Provence, and
theio lived in iillliicnee ai,.i oate upon tbe
gaini of his long and luij career. On one
occasion the ioinp.iuv assembled in bis salon
heard from liN lip- ibe following story:
Ity decree-, ai Napoleon assumed the au
tbonty or a king, even thing about him,
even in thedajx of the Consulate, began to
weir a court-like appearance. All the old
monarchical habitude- were revived, one by
one. Among other rev it ais of this kind, the
custom of attending iiias previous to tbe
hour of audience was rcstorpd by iiona
parte, and he himself was punctual In bis
appearance at the chapel or St. Cloud on
such occasions. Nothing could be more
mundane than the mode ot performing these
religious service. The aare-ses of the
opiu were the choirfcts, and great crowds
ot busy, talkative people were in the habit
of frcipienling the gallery or the chapel,
from tbe windows or which the First Con
ul and Josephine could nhvaj s be seen with
their suite and ft lends. The whole formed
merely a daily exhibition of the consular
court for the people.
At one particular time the punctuality of
tioinpnrte In bis attendance on mass was
rather digressing to his wire. The quick
and jealous Josephine bad discovered that
the njc ot her husband was too much di
rected to a. window in the gallery where
there regularly appeared the form and face
of a girl of uncommon beauty. The chest
nut tresses, the brilliant ejes and graceful
figure or this personage caused the more
uneasiness to the Consul's wife, as the
stranger's glances were bent not less olten
upon llonaparto than his were upon her.
one day, :itthecloc ot the service; "what
can she seek from the Tirst Consul ? 1 ob
scrved her drop a billet jut now at bis feet.
He picked It up 1 saw him."
No one could tellJosophinc who tbe ob
ject of her notice precisely was, though
Uiero were some who declared her to bo an
"emlgree" lately returned, and was proba
bly desirous of the intervention ot the First
Consul in favor of her family. With such
guesses as this, the Consul's wile was oblig
ed to rest satisfied for the time.
Arter tbe audience of that same day bad
passed, Ilonaparte expressed a wish for a
drive lu tbepark, and accordingly wentout,
accompanied by his wife, his brother Jo
seph, Duroc, and Hortcnsc, Ileuuliarnnis.
The King of Prussia had just presented
N'anoleon with a superb set or horses, 16ur
lu number, and they were harnessed to an
open chariot for the party. The Consul
took it in his head to drive in person, and
mounted into the coachman's seat. The
chariot set off, but just as it was turning
into the patk, it went crash against a stone
at the gate, and the First Consul was thrown
to the ground. He attempted to rise, but
again fell prostrate in a stunned and iusen
sible condition. Meanwhile tbe horses
sprang forward with the chariot, and were
only stopped when Duroc, at the risk of his
life, threw himself and seized tbe loose
reins. Josephine was taken out In a swoon
ing condition. The rest or the party speed
ily returned to Napoleon, and carried him
back to his apartments. On recovering his
senses fully, the first thing which be did
was to put his baud into his pocket and pull
out the slip of paper dropped at his feet in
tbe chapel. Looking over his shonlder, Jo
sephine read upon it these words:
"Do not drive out in your carriage this
"This can have no allusion to our late ac
cident," said Bonaparte. "No one"could
foresee that I was to play the part of coach
man to-day, or that 1 should he awkward
enough to driv c against a stone. Go, Duroc
and examine the chariot."
Duroc obeyed. Soon alter he returned
very pale, and took the First Consul aside.
"Citizen Consul," said hcj "bad you not
struck the stone and stopped our drive, we
had alt been lost."
"How so?" was the reply.
"There was in the carriage, conce iled be
hind the rear scat, a massive bomb, charged
with ragged pieces of iron, with a slow
match attached to it, and kindled. This bad
been so arranged, that In a quarter of an
hour we should have been scattered among
the trees of tbe I'ark;ofSaintCloid. Foucbe
must he told of this. Dubois must be warn
"Not a word to them," replied Bonaparte.
"The knowledge of one plot only engenders
a second. Let Josephine remain ignorant
of the danger she has escaped. Uortensc,
Joseph, Camaccrcs tell none of them ; and
let the government journals say not a word
about my tall."
The First Consul was then silent Tor some
"Duroc," be said, at length, "you will
come to-morrow at mass and examine with
attention, a young girl whom I shall point
out to yog. She will occupy tbe fourth win.
dow in the gallery on the ritrbt. Follow her
home, or cause her to be followed, and
bring me Intelligence of her name, her
abodo aud her circumstances. It will be
lietter to do this vourself; I would not have
tbe police interfere in the matter."
On the morrow, the eyes of more than one
person were turned to the window in tbe
gallery. But the jealous Josephine sought
in vain tor the graceful figure of the young
girl, bhe was not there. The impatient
First Consul, and bis confident, Duroc, were
greatly annoyed at her non-appearance, and
mail was the attention paid by tberato the
service that day. Their anxiety was fruit
less. The gill was seen at mass no more.
Tbe summers of Napoleon were spent
chiefly at 3UlmaUon tbe winters at Saint
Cloud ancVhe Tuileries. Winter had come
on, and the first Consul bad bees holding
court in tbe great apartments of tbe last
or these palaces. It was tbe third of that
month which the Republicans well called
Aifow, asd in the evening Bonaparte eater
ed his carriage to go to the opera, accom
panied by- hi aidnle-caajp. Laeriston, aad
Generals Eaaaes aBd Berthler. The vehicle
waa about to start, when a female, wrapped
in a black mantle, rasbed out upea thePIaee
Carousel, made her way Into themidatef
the guards about to accompany Boaaparte,
aad held tortb a paper to tbe latter, cry lag:
"CHiiea ComuI! Cltlaea Consul! read!
. ssMMjtarte. with that smile which Bow
rleaae describes as irresistible, sal h ted the
petitioner, stretched out his band brtbe
missive. ''A petition, madam ?'' said he, in
quiringly, and tbeu continued :
"Fear nothing 1 shall peruse it aud see
"Citizen Consul !" cried tlie woman, Im
ploringly joining her band.
What she would have further said was
lost. The coachman, who, it was afterwards
said, was intoxicated, gave tbe lash to his
horses, and tbey sprang off with tbe speed
The Consul, throwing into bis hat the pa
per he bad received, remarked to bis com
panions : "I could not well sec her figure,
but I think the poor woman is young."
The carriage dashed along rapidly. It
was just issuing from the street ot Saint
Nicholas, when a (rightful detonation was
heard, mingling with, and followed by tbe
crash of broken windows and the cnes of
injured passers-by. The infernal machine
had exploded. Uninjured, tbe carriage of
tbe Consul and its inmates was whirled with
undiminished rapidity to tbe opera. Bona
parte entered bis box With serene brow and
unruffled deportment. He saluted, as usual,
tbe assembled spectators, to whom the news
of tbe explosion came with all the speed
which rumor exercises upon such occasions.
AU were stunned and stupefied. Bonaparte
only was perfectly calm. He stood with
crossed arms, listening attentively to tbe
oratorio of Hayden, which was executed on
that evening. Suddenly, however, he re
membered the paper put into his bands. He
took it out n"d read these lines:
"In the name of heaven. Citizen Consul
do not go to the opera to-night, or, if ) ou
do go, pass not through the street "t Stint
On reading these words, the Consul chanc
ed to raise his eyes. Exactly opposite to
htm, in a box on the third tier, sat the young
.girl of the Chapel of Saint Cloud, who, with
joined hands, seemed to utter prayers of
gratitude for the escape which had taken
place. Her head had no covering, but her
flowing and beautiful chestnut hair, aud her
person was wrapped la a dark mantle, which
the Consul recognized as identical with that
worn by the woman who had delivered the
paper to him at tbe carriage door on tbe
"Go," said he, quietly but quickly, to
Lanncs ; "go to the box exactly opposite us,
on the third tier. You will find a young
girl In a black mantle. Bring her to the
Tuileries. I must sec her without delay."
Bonaparte spoke thui, without raising bis
eyes, but to make Lanncs certain of tbe per
son, he took the General's arm and said,
pointing upw-ard, "See there look I"
Bonaparte stooped suddenly. The girl
was gone. No black mantle was to be seen.
Annoyed at this beyond measure, he hur
riedly sent off Lanncs to intercept her. It
was in vain. The box-keeper had seen such
an individual, but knew nothing about her.
Bonaparte applied to Foucbe and Dubois,
but all the zeal of these functionaries failed
to discover her.
Years ran on alter the explosion of the in
fernal machine and the strange accompany
ing circumstance, which tended to make tbe
occurrence more remarkable in the eyes oi
Bonaparte. To the Consulate succeeded the
Empire, and victory after victory marked
the carccr.ol the great Corsican. At len ;tu
the hour of change came. Allied Europe
poured its troops into France, and compell
ed the Emperor to lay down the sceptre
which had been so long shaken in terror
over half the civilized world. The Isle of
Elba became for a few days tbe most re
markable spot on tbe globe, and finally the
resuscitated empire fell to pieces anew on
tbe field of Waterloo.
Bonaparte was about to quit France. The
moment bad come for him to set foot in the
bark which was to convey him to tbe Eng
lish vessel. Friends who had followed tbe
fallen clilet to the very last, were" standing
by to give him a final adieu. He waved his
hand to these around, "and a smile was on
the lip which had given the farewell kiss to
the imperial eagle. At this Instant a woman
broke through the band that stood before
Napoleon. Sbc was in the prime of woman's
life ; not a girl, yet young enough to retain
unimpaired that beauty for which sbo had
been remarkable among a crowd oi beau
ties. Her features were full of anxiety and
sadness, adding interest to her appearance,
ev eu at such a moment.
"Sire ! Sire !" (aid she, presenting a paper
hurriedly; "read 1 read '.."
The Emperor took the paper presented to
him. He shook his bead, and held up tbe
paper to his eyes. After perusing its con
tents, he took il between his bands and tore
it to pieces, scattering the fragments in the
'Stop, sire !" cried the woman. "Follow
the advice? Be warned it is yet time 1"
'No," replied Napoleon. And taking
from his finger a beautiful oriental ruby, a
valuable souvenir of bis Egyptian campaigns,
be held it out to tbe woman. She took it,
kneeling, and kissed the band which pre
sented it. Turning bis head, Napoleon then
stepped into the boat which awaited to take
him to tbe vessel. The vessel took bim to
tbe barren rock ot St. Helena, and there be
Thus of three warnings, two were useless
because neglected until tbe danger had oc
curred, and the third which prognosticated
tbe fate of Napoleon, If once in tbe power
ol his adversaries was rejected.
"But who was this woman, Duke of
"That," replied Foucbe, "I know not
with certainty. The Emperor, if he knew
ultimately, seems to have kept the secret.
All that is known respecting the matter is
that a female related to Saint Kegent, one of
tbe authors of the explosion of tbe street of
St. Nicholas, died at the hospital Hotel DIeu
in 1837, and. that around her neck was sus
pended, by a silk ribbon, tbe exquisite
oriental ruby of Napoleon."
A dispatch from Washington, on the third
Inst., Is as follows :
Secretary Teller has not signed a decision
for four days, and it is probable that Done
will be made till after the adjournment of
Congress. In consequence of the delay the
number of important questions needing at
tention is increasing. During the present
week Mr. Teller has been before the Senate
tiling bit list of appointments, and trying to
have bills passed affecting bis department.
Commissioner Price said to-day that if ever
Payne waa justified ia going upon the Okla
homa lands he was justified in doing so now.
Mr. Price said lie had asked Congress, re
peatedly, to pass a law Imprisoning intrud
ers, but it bad failed to comply. Fining
amounted to nothing. It would be the same
if Payne was fined 11,000,000 as if assessed
only 91,000. He could pay nothing, and con
tinually he was causing trouble to the gov
ernment and those ao foolish; as to follow
bim. Tbe commissioner favors placing upon
the Oklahoma lands tbe negroes bow ia tbe
Choctaw and Chickasaw nations.

Tbe following was sent from Eureka
Springs. Arkansas, to X M. Purviance, of
tbis city, by "Korporal Kazy," and Is pub
lished by request :
Mr. Chairman : My proposition Is that
where there is low clvilizat'on there is high
Democracy. If yon will show me a county.
State or community that raises long, lean,
lank, gaunt, cadaverous, lop-eared, slab
sided, razor-back, elm-splitting, thistle-digging
hogs, I will show you a Democratic
majority. It was my fortune, or misfortune,
to sec some years ago, near Maysvllle, Ben
ton county, Arkansas, a specimen of this
persuasion of hog. His ears bad been chop.
ped half way up, and yet he bad enough
left to eclipse tbe moon. He was hump
backed, and "each particular hair stood on
end, like quills upon the fretful porcupine."
His snout would have made Jumbo rage
with envy, and at his sight the ghost of tbe
elder Hamlet would have died of grief.
There he stood in the jack-oak brush,
"wrapt in the solitude of his own originali
ty.' I was amazed, puzzled, perplexed.
My rirst impression was that he was the
ghost of the "lost cause" ev idently he was
a lost cause of some kind. His sides were a
living argument against the contraction of
the currency. His backbone was aside
splitting joke. . He looked like tbe cbromo
of a panic. I could think of nothing for
tbe purpose of a hog be would apply to ,ex-
cept, perhaps, spar-ribs ; in that I think be
was a success. He looked like a clothes
horse crossed with a nightmare. He was as
tblu as tbe painted shadow of a porous plas
ter, and seemed to be abdominally insolvent.
Not much is known of his ancestors, but I
tbiuk he was sired by an alligator and damn
ed by everybody in tbe community. He
seemed debilitated, and sadly in need of
tonics. He was a melancholy hog. I think
he was an orphan, and that bis folks died
of galloping over neighboring fences, and
consuming the contents of everybody's
"truck patch" except their owner's. Evi
dently he was a slf-made hog; bad seen
service ; bad stood at tbe mast. He was a
living picture ol "before taking." He seem
ed to bo afflicted with scurvy, complicated
with bone spavin. He was a breathing
photograph of "death in tbe primer." His
family physician must have been a quack,
and he a victim of malpractice. Elsewhere,
I would have thought that be bad,been fed
on hoopskirts. He looked like tbe vignette
on a patent nostrum for "anti-fat." He was
a walking volume on political economy ; a
living witness for the doctrine of supply and
demand. For reaching down iuto the sea
for hidden treasures, digging cisterns, or
mining, he may have been useful, but for
the purpose of a bog, be was a dismal fail
ure. He was a bad lot ; bis mother was an
old sow. He may have been honest, but be
bad a bad countenance. He bad a hideous
Ishmaelitisti look about bim. I think be
was an out-law. I think be disobeyed tbe
law in regard to a legal fence. I think he
was a common thief, and would steal any
thing be could get bis alligator jaws on, and
.then refuse to get fat. As to contributing
anything to the wealth ot the country, be
was a snare and a delusion. At yet this
graceless ghost of a hog ; tbis deformed, un
finished, lantern-jawed burlesque ofa brute;
tbis flesblcss rack ot bones ; tbis lawless vil
lain, desperado and son or a sow, finds a
hiding place, a home and a habitation in the
bosom of Arkansas Democracy. Is comment
necessary ? I inquired of my trav eling com
panion if tbis was an extreme case of the
melancholy hog, aud he informed me that
be bad lots of friends and relations that
there was a large family of him. And the
moral of the talc of this hog Is this : At this
very moment, as I can prove by the dater, a
canvass was in progress for State and Coun
ty officers, and tbo Republican party did not
even have a ticket or an organization.
HOW COLD WAVES TRAVEL.
Some of tbe Impreiiivs Facts of Mtttorslogieal
Cold waves, so called a name for whlcb
we are indebted to recent meteorological
science do not appear to move in some in
stances much faster than a railroad express
train. They vary, however, in their rate of
motion. Wbere do they come from? It is
not easy to say. It might be found, if one
could travel at express train speed from tbe
mountains of Montana and tbe frozen re
gions farther north, that the cold continued
all the way to Eastern Alaska, and pn to the
Behring Strait, with even a greater degree
of intensity. In fact, the coldest region Is
probably the wide expanse west, and espec
ially north-west, of Hudson's Bay, in the
neighborhood of tbe magnetic pole. A "cold
wave," is a wave of heavy air, following tbe
rarefied track of "low barometer," and
changing the rarefied and milder atmos
phere (which Is usually also stormy) to one
of clear, cold skies; a heavy air, full of
tonic power, and exhilarating and hunger-
producing to sound and healthy animal life.
The establishment of the modern Govern
ment weather observation stations, with
their appliances, including the electric tele
graph and the dally press, has enabled the
country to see and comprehend something
of tbe movements of these frequent cold
waves. The movement is as marked as the
advance of a veritable sea wave. The tele
graph heralds its start from the Bocky
Mountains (it alwas seems to begin there,
though In fact it rarely does having its ori
gin much farther nortb), and Its advance can
be timed like that of a railroad train. Its
speed varies from forty to sixty, or some
times seventy miles an hour; usually it
would seem about fifty. It rolls over tbe
country, a real wave, an aerial counterpart,
on tbe shore, of its congener, tbe tidal wave
of the ocean, and its direction is usually
from tbe northwest to the southeast. It
sweeps slowly down from the frozen wastes
of the Asiatic shore, and the equally frigid
wilds of the American mainland in tbe Arc
tic circle, to the Atlantic coast Its breadth
reaching all tbe way from Nova Scotia to
Cape Hatteras, and frequently making its
chill presence felt as far south as Florida.
Tbe Bermudas which lies just south of the
Gulf Stream, a little over COO miles almost
due east of Charleston feel the influence
of our "cold waves" very prcceptlbly. That
solitary little group of small, low-lying coral
islands, which can he reached by steamer
from New York In the same time that it
would take to go to Savannah, happen to lie
on tbe leeward side of the Gulf Stream ; aad
that great thermal current of the ocean for
ever saves them from lrost, and keeps them
ia spring foliage all winter; but, while it
finely tempers and modifies the north wiad,
It cannot quite rob it of ail its iatriaslc
character and tbe result is a wind that may
be at times cool, and frequently boisterous,
but never really cold ; and those lonely is
lands surrounded by wide-reaching coral
reefs, have all winter a pleasant climate of
spring. That is almost all that tbey, or the
more southern islands of tbe Bermudas, ever
know of our winter "cold waves." These
come in aa almost rhythmical succeasioa,
aad have tbeir causes, doubtless, as potest
aa those ot the ocean's tides, which they

OUBIOOTBS OF TEBIRAILWAT CENSUS.
According to the census railway returns
for 1830, there were 1,105 companies having,
in round numbers, 87,000 miles of railway in
operation in tbis country an aggregate al
most equal to a track extending four times
round the earth.
Tbe cost of this gigantic sv stem w as near
ly five thousand six hundred and sixty mil
lions of dollars, of which about two fifths
has been paid for and the companies are In
debt for the balance. In tbe good time com
ing, when this enormous debt of over three
thousand millions or dollars is paid off, and
the interest thereon ceases, It Is probable
that railway speeds will be improved, trav
eling rendered safer, and tbe charges for
freight and passage reduced.
The mortality upon our railways is fright
ful to contemplate. According to the census
returns, the killed and maimed for the sin
gle year of 1880 formed an aggregate of 8,215
persons. If the companies were compelled
by law to pay an average of say $3,000 for
every person killed or injured, only a short
time would elapse, probably, before this
dreadful account would be reduced almost
to nothing. There are very few railway ac
cidents that might not be prevented it real
care were exercised and the best safeguards
adopted. Tbe passage of a law subjecting
every company to tbe payment of a substan
tial fine for every accident that takes place
upon Its property would doubtless stimulate
the managers to give more attcntiou to tbe
safety of lire and limb than they do at pres
ent. The demand upon our iuventors for the
discovery of new and better means for sav
ing life and preventing accidents upon rail
ways Increases every j ear, in a ratio even
greater than tbe augmentation of tracks, be
cause tbe population is more rapidly Increas
ing, and the present railways arc not cm
ployed at any thing like their full capacity.
Tbe freight carried In 1880 was two hun
dred and ninety-one millions of tons, for
which tbe railways charged f 1.20 per ton per
mile, and made a net profit of &.1 cents per
ton per mile.
The number of passengers carried was two
buadred and sev enty millions, for which they
each paid an average of 2.33 cents per mile.
and tlie companies made a profit of O.Ct cents
per mile If tbe passengers are counted by
weight, allowing 14 passengers to tbe ton,
then tbe receipts of tbo companies for tbeir
two-legged freight was $32.62 per ton per
mile and tbeir profit was $8.68 per ton per
mile. This large profit, when set opposite
to the small amount of 53 cents profit per ton
realized from dead freight, seems to Indicate
that a great field is open to the genius of rail
way managers in devising ways and means
to encourage tbe people to travel.
The haulage of our railways employs over
17,000 locomotives, and tbe aggregate cost to
run them, such as fuel, water, oil, repairs,
and engineers, is about 990,000,000. or not
far from 93,000 a year for each machine. The
item of fuel alone Is thirty-three millions of
dollars. Tbe larger portion of the fuel is
wasted; much of it is blown out of the
smoke-stack, unconsumed in tbe form of
smoke and dust. There is a grand chance
for inventors to improve the locomotive by
discovering means to lessen Its wastes and
expenses. The same remarks apply to the
other branches of tbe railway rolling stock,
consisting of over twelve thousand passen
ger cars and about four hundred thousand
freight cars. In the year 1880 ,lt cost tbe
railway companies fifty-five millions of dol
lars for repairs for rolling stock. Is it not
possible for inventive genius to study out
some new mode of construction that shall
reduce this enormous loss?

Genenl Grmt, In a recent conversation,
"The darkest day of my life was tbe day 1
heard of thetssasslnation of Lincoln. I did
not know what it meant. Here was tbe re
bellion put down in the fieid,and starting up
again lu the gutter; we had fought it as war
and now we had to fight it as assassination.
Lincoln was killed on the evening of the 14tb
of April. I was busy sending out orders to
stop recruiting, the purchase of supplies,
and to muster out the army. Lincoln bad
promised to go to the theatre, and wanted
me to go with him. While 1 was with the
President a jiotc came from Mrs. Grant say
ing that she must leave Washington that
night, bhe wanted to go to Burlington to
see her children. Some incident of a trifling
nature bad made ber resolve to leave that
evening. I was glad to have it so, as I did
not want to go to the theatre. So I made my
excuse to Lincoln and at the proper hour we
started for tbe train. As wc were driving
along Pennsylvania avenue a horseman rode
past us on a gallop, and back again around
our carriage, looking Into it. Mrs. Grant
'"There is the man who sat near us at
lunch to-day, with some otbermen, and tried
to overhear our conversation. He was so
rude that wc left the dining-room. Here be
is. now riding after us.'
"I thought it was ouly curiosity, but
learned afterward that the horseman was
Booth. It seems that I was to have been at
tacked, and Mrs. Grant's sudden resolve to
leav e changed tbe plan. A few days after 1
received an anonymous letter from a man
saying that be bad been detailed to kilt me,
that be rode on my train as far as Havre de
Grace, and as my car was locked be failed to
get In. He thanked God that he bad failed.
I rememered that the conductor had locked

passing through Philadelphia. I turned
around, took a special train and came ou to

COMES TO THE KE3C0E.
The Junction City Cnioa rallies to the de
fense of Jobu A. Anderson's course on tbe
tariff. This Is all well enough, as tbe Union
was the original discoverer of Anderson, and
Is in duty bound to protect Its discovery.
Wc have been as strong a friend to Ander
son as the Union has, and have worked as
hard for him; but wecannot endorse his
course on tbe tariff. We know that .Repub
licans have different views on this question,
and that some are in favor of higher duties
on certain articles than others are. All this
is legitimate difference, that can be tolerat
ed. But there Is something in the manner
of the thing that is extremely obnoxious.
When Anderson slops over on every little
proposition, such as a duty of one-tenth of
a mill on diaper-pins, and paws and bellows
like a bull in a china shop, and pounds his
desk, and declares that the Republican party
shall not be made a machine to oppress tbe
farmers of his State, it is downright dema
gogcry, for the purpose ot eliciting the ap
plause of Democrats and Free Traders, and
securing the flattery of bearing them remark
what an able and Independent man Johu A.
Anderson i. While the Republican party
has made mistakes, and has contained some
very had men, Jobu A.Andcrson well knows
that its policy has never been to oppress any
body. It lias carried freedom aud prosperi
ty in its train, and its policy has been to
build up, to enlighten, to detelop the re
sources or tbe country, and to promote
prosperity. It has done tbis for twenty
years, and one of tbe means employed has
been a protective tariff. The Democrats,
whose applause Mr. Anderson courts, have
not done this, and their sort of a tariff has
never done it. Therefore, we say, when he
allies himself with tbe Democrats on this
question, and bellows about not allowing
the Republican pirty to be made an instru
ment of oppression, be is playing the dema
gogue. The fact is, he feels bis oats. The
Republican party has favored bim so highly,
and given him such a united support, that
he thinks it is bis popularity that is keeping
the party up. Troy Chit.
