The futtiro policy ot tho Domocratlc
party was not forobdpwcd during tho
last st'ilon. Thero lijno doubt, Imwovor
that heforo tho party onteri upon another
prcAldonllfil campaign a now platform, In
accordance wild tho cnntitut!on, but
mcellntf the imuui of the day will ho
ml opted to that tho people- will rally to its
Mipport. Tho tendency and tho character
of tho people, their habits and manners of
I iff, Imvo changed within tlw latt twenty
year; enormous riches havo accumulated,
in a fow hands, necQtiltating acorre'pond
Ing clinngo In tho notion of I bo party, hut
'vhlch hu not been made, thetcloro our
recent falluro in n merely
personal contest. Thu wholn world
is rapidly becoming more and moro tut
mopolitiiti ; stitlo boundiirlos and state
rlghu, unfortunately tiro less and I en re
garded while tho interests of the people
us n nationality aro moro clmrly recog
ni.od. This i no doubt, duo in n great
meiisuro to steam and telegraph by which
retnoto places aro brought closer together
than neighboring places formerly were.
Europe U nearer Now York to-day than
Huston wm olio hundred yearn ago.
Neither tho West nor .South can protpe
or oven maintain their present position
unless tho means of inlor-communicatlon
with thu eastern markets aro rnado moro
numerous and cheaper, and yot thu ten
dency Is not so much to decrease tho rates
at to Incrcatu them. This inter-communication
Inn credited vast corporations which
were unknown and even impossible in tho
days of our fathers, becauio the
necessity for them did not ex
ist. Thren or four great railroad corpo
rations and ono great telegraph company
now control all tho communication of pas
sengers, of merchandise, and of thought.
Shall these corporations bo mado Mibvir.
vlenl to tho interests of tlio people, or tho
pcoplo to tho interests of tho few stock,
holders, who own or control them, is the
question which tho Democratic party
must address itself. With this much on the
subject of railroads let us
turn to tho telegraph which
is of Jgroater Immediate importance,
of moro vital interest anil moro easily reg
ulated by law than railroads. Tho tule
graph rules tho press, control the markets
and has tho power of espionage over tho
most Important correspondent of tbo na
tion. All other correspondence passes
through tho post-oftce, transmitted be
tween otllccs by instrumentalities provided
by privato panic. As n result of this
system in proportion to our population,
sparsely distributed over n vast urea, and
tho facilities furnished, wo ba'vo th'o cheap
eat and best regnlated postal system in tho
world. Tho telegraph managed by a
n singlo private corporation furnishes the
fuweft facilities ut tho highest charges.
.Some plan similar to that proposed to
congress by Mr. (lardiner (i. Hubbard
and approved by standing committecj of
tho somite and houso and by many leading
members of both political parlies, for
making tho telegraph ono of tho postal
means of transmitting correspondence,
will bo Bdoptod If tho Democratic party
does not fall short of its high aim in seek
ing those things which benefit tho pcoplo
in opposition to tho interests of thu low,
Another subject as new us thu telegraph
and which directly interests a very largo
number, is that of lifo insuranco. Theio
associations, by which the many contrib
ute to a common fund, from which tho
means of support is drawn lor tho widow
aud children of those who aro taken
away, aro of so humano and christian a
character, .that it becomes all who
depend upon their own resources
and who havo wives and children, whom
ihey lovo to lecomu inombers thereof to
sco that thoy aro not loft dopondont upon
tho cold charities of tbo world or tbo
friendship of relations. Tho inagnitudo of
this interest is measured by millions of
dollars. Tho amounts assured equal tho
debt of our country nnd tho annual revo
nuci collected that receivod , from in
ternal taxes. Jlut those corporations, liko
all others, aro managed lor different ob
jects, soma for tho benefit of tbo insured,
othors fortlmt.of tho ollloers, nnd u third
for tho ngonts. It is thorforo of vital in
terest to all parties insurod or contem
plating insurance soo to it that they ob

Tho means oi ascertaining tho standing of
tho various companies is cusior than
it might soon), as somo of tho
statos provido by law for returns

whoso duty It is to Investigate tho standing
and position of such companios. In a Into

not duo to political causes, as ho was in
perfoct accord with tho president, but
aroso from a desiro to bo freed from the
responsibility to whirls he Is subjected by
defalcations among bis subordinates.
WASiimoToy, March 17. A cabinet
mooting was called by tho president this
morning to consider the nominations to
tho senate, tho president being desirous of
completing this business in order that tho
senato may adjourn sine die, at conveni
ence. All members excepting CrosWell
The president has sent to the senate the
nomination of William A. Richardson as
secretary of tho troasury, together with
tho ret of the cabinet now In offlco.
Among tho nominations to-day were :
John 1. Lane, district attorney for Iowa;
.1.8. Uoreman, associate justice of Utah;
A. II. K. Safford, governor of Ari.ona;
Ooorgo Fish or, imveyor of customs at
Thu recall of Minister Do Long is in
sisted upon for tho reason that ho Is said
to have involved himself in difficulties ex
istini; between Japan and another nation,
contrary to diplomatic usages, and hi re
latlons with tho state department uro not
entirely satisfactory. This neutraliis tho
efforts of his Pacific coast friends in his
behalf. His integrity docs not seem to bo
in any way called in question.
"Wasiunoton, D. C. March 17. Tho
vlco president submitted tho papors and
documents, signed by members of tho
Missouri legislature, and others, alleging
that thero was corruption in tho olectlon
of Ilogy as senator. Referred to the com
mittoo on elections.
Tho Caldwell case was resumed, and
Sonator Saulsbury addressod tho sonate.
Wbilo ho maintained the pewer to expel,
which was absolutely controlled by a de
claration of tbo senate, and the powor to
declaro tho election by tho Kansas legisla
ture void, ho believed tho propor method
was expulsion, becauso tho senate was in
dissolubly connected with tho transaction
which tainted bis character.
At o'clock Uoutwoll came into
tho sonato chamber, accompanied by .Son
ator Sumner. The former took a seat
near tho lattor.
Sonator Sumner presontcd tho creden
tials of Rout well, which wero road.
Tho vico president rcqucstod Uoutwoll
to como forward, llo did so, escorted by
Sonator Sumner. Tho vlco presidont
then administered tlio oath, after which
tho vico president wolcomcd him by shak
ing hands with him, Uoutwoll took a va
cant soat on tho loft of tbo chair, whore ho
was congratulated by many senators.
Tho consideration ot the Caldwell caso
Sonator Pratt said ho should vote for
tho resolution of tho commlttoo, becauso
Caldwell was a party to acorrupt arrango
mont with Carney, and contributed
money to proouro his oloction. The con
fidence of tho country would bo shaken if
aonators allowed their sympathies to
control their convictions of duty. Cald
well was Immoral and corrupt, and im
paired tho froodom of elections.
On motion of Senator Conkllng, tho sen
ato wont into oxocutlve session.
When tho doors wero again openod,con
slderation of tbo Caldwoll caso was re
sumod. Sonator Bayard said tho senato could
ascertain only wholher tbo legislature bad
choson a senator, and boyond this tho sen
ato could not go, There was nothing in
tho ponding case whloh could justify the
passago of the resolution de
claring tho oloction Invalid, but
tho powor of expulsion wm
clear in vindication of the honor ot tbo
sonato. IIo had come to tho conclusion
that largo sums of money wore paid to se
cure votos for Caldwell, and that Caldwell
had a knowledge thereof, and so was Im.
plicated injtho transaction. A man who
committed such an offenso was unworthy
of a scat in tho sonato. Hit conduct de
manded his expulsion, with all otheri like
Senator Sherman submitted a motion

Senator Conkllng did not understand

tbe sonator from Mississippi, (Alcorn),
for expulsion, was contingent.
Senator Thurman laid he tuougiii
almost everything that could be said had
boon said, but ho desired to give his rea
sons which would control his vote. He
auggestod that no senator would jump at
conclusions without hoarlng all the argu

Wo record this morning thu end of nn
Illustrious lifo. On Thursday, nt Florence,
luly, tbo Higbt Hav. Episcopal Bishop oT
Ohio, Charles Pettlt Mellvalno, died at
tho ago of iiighty-tlvc. Ho was tho oldest
bishop of his church iu this country In
years, and was tho senior In rank, with
one exception, Hisbop Smith, of Ken
tucky. Tlio latter consecrated tho samo
day as HMiop Mcllvaino, and his episco
pacy was tlio older tty n tow minutes only.

D was born in Iturllngton, Now .lerjov.
January 18, 1798, and was a son of Joseph
Jlcllvaliie, n senator in luo congros ot
tho United States from that slate. IIo

lio had studied for thu Presbyloriati minis
try. In 1822, after having otllciated in
Christ church, Georgetown. Maryland, for
somo time, lio was oruaincu a priest.
From 1855 to 1857 ho was chap
lain and profe'ior of ethics at tho
Wost Point military academy,
and horo begun to dovclop qualities which
torcsuauoweU a remarkable career. Dur
ing thoso years, which wero tho ones dur
ing which JelT. Davis and other afterward
distinguished men wero ut tho ucadomy,
thoro was u remarkable religious revival at
tbo Point, a revival as eventually sent no
less than tho following officers of tho classes
of those years among whom il will bo
noticed was tho bravo Gen. Polk, Bishop
of Toxac to tho mlnistcry of tho Episco
pal church, viz: N. S. Harris, W. Bryant,
Gcorgo Woodbridge, Leonldas Polk,
Charles W. Hackoy, James Clark, Fran
cis Vinton, W. N. Pcndloton, Hoswell
At this time, In tho words of u recent
writer, Charles Mellvalno was "splendid
in faco nnd tall and graceful in uniform,
easy in mannorr, Uno and perfect In ges
ticulation, and poworfully melodious and
searching voice. Ho came in tho vigor
of manhood from Washington, when and
whore oratory was iu its primo, and was
mado a point und appreciated. It wa
tho days of Wobstor und Uayno, Uurgesi
and Calhoun. Mr. Mellvalno was un in
telligence himsolf, an adept in thu art
and in this school in thino time
ho mado himself tbo best." '
Subsequently lio accepted tho rectorshp
of St. Aune's church, Brookljn, and m
uototier ui, lot-, no was consecrated a
bishop. From 1832 to 1810 bo was prsi
dent of Kenyon college, at Gambir,
Ohio, and at tho timo of his death ss
president of tho Theological seminary f
Diocese of Ohio. Tho position of proe
dent ot Kenyon collegu wa, howev,
simply n nominal one, tbo uoajaicd Ipd
ing it ox-otllcio as bishop of tbo Dioo.
Ho rosidod at.Gamblor till tho year 112,
when ho removed to Cincinnati, and mco
that timo this city has boon bU homo
Bishop Mellvalno was tho mitbr of
many standard religious works, aiong
them boing "Lectures on tho Evidenss of
Christianity," written In 1831; "JusBlca
lion ofFaitb," in 1840; "Oxford Dlutity
Compared with that of tho Romish and
Anglican Churches,' In 1811, and 'The
Truth and the Life," 1815. Besides hoso,
ho compiled two volumes entitled ".elect
Family and Parish Sormons."
Bishop Mellvalno married Miss Cox,
tho daughter of n distinguished Olioan,
und had threo sons and four daujjiter.
Of these children tho following su'vive:
Hav. Charlos E. Mellvalno, Alloitown,
Pennsylvania; Mrs. Dubois, wife if thu
l'.ov. Charles Dubois, of Fittrbault, ilinn.;
Mrs. J. II. Howson, wife of a former Cln
cinuatlan, now of Now York; Mrs Mes
sor, whose husband Is In London, England,
and Miss Mellvalno, of Clifton. Oie son
died in boyhood nnd tho other In Wash
ington, wboro ho sorved in tho treasury de
partment, about two years ago.
Mrs. Mossor, whoso brilliant wedding
roceptlon at Probasco's, in Clifton, Is still
trosli in tho minds of our people, was with
her father at tho ond. .Falling 't-'lk
compelled him In May last to go abroad,
and Mrs. Mossor, fearing the worst, for the
splondid constitution had brokon nt last
under timo and labor, accompanied tho
venorablo prolato to Italy. Tho end,
which was not unexpected by thoso whoso
lovo nnd nnxiety followed tho gray-haired
priest ovor tho seas, was, it is believed,
hastened by vortlgo, to which ho was a
victim, or, perhaps, by apoploxy.
