Tho I.ouJon 'Tlnic' taket up" the tub
Ject of C-tarlstu In America and expresses
touio very English views upon it. It will
turpriio no one that tho organ of the Hril
lth aristocracy thinks that a continuation
of President (i rant In tho ollice of chief
magistrate of tha United States with a
merely nominal olectioti every four years,
"as a tafoguard against tho perpetration of
'any scandaloui abusu of power ' would
be a great reform in American pdilica;
would securo to the people the service of
better men and render tho process of tholr
election to ofUce less degrading to thorn
selves and all concerned, "in It. "Thu de
tails of an American presidential

tide of tho Atlantic with umusoment and
disgust." It it not surprising thnt the
doscendontt of tho men from whom our
forgathers, nearly a century ago, grasped
their independence, should cborish preju
dices which assisted to miiko tho gaining
of that independence n severe strugglo
nor that they should welcome imy uvi

our ancestors, and aro willing to lot thi
ll tarty for which tby fought

or desire. The opoiioiu reasoning
of the London journal fails to vnil
thu cheerfulness with which Kngkvid
would bail tho virtual abandonment of
republican government in America by tho
adoption of tho "perpetual re-election."
All tuch backward steps would help to
discourage the growing republican tenti
went in England, and added to the inher
ited dislike ol Hritons for our American
Institutions, are powerful reasons fur their '
being regarded with peculiar favor I
fa tha other tide of the Atlantic.
But as the thunder of the

on American ears there is reason to hope
It will create no very alarming shuck.

Tho authorities of Memphis, like tho
autboritlei of almost every city like our
own, f ir instanceare in the habit of
locking the stable door after the horse hat
b-ea stolen. After tho tmall-pox had ap
peared in that city, and It had Iain around
loose for months, the authorities etab
litbaj a smtll-pji hospital ; aftor the
cholera bad become epidemic, they organ
Ued a botrd of health, and, now, after tlo
yellow fever hs becanw epidemic, they
are working diligently to disinfect the
city and stop the ravages of tho disease.
Our own city authorities are disposed to
indulge in the stable-locking process.
They know the yellow futer it" 't Mem
ptla , they have rea.on to tuspect that at
least ormcisha developed in Cairo; they
have been warned, but they aro toailinn.
The board ol health has, w., under. land,
had one meeting, but Its members refuse
to divulge tha business it transacted,
probably becauvi th actio of tha botrd
wa unirnportant. This may be a who
policy. Wo do not propoae'to denounce
it, We are inclined to submit meekly to
the tupior wisdom or the hoard, which
does efl'uctlve work without noise ttops
iu ravages oi aito&io by a twist A the
wrist stamps out epidemics by not doing
anything, and wi.ely denlet the presence
of disease In this city, after all tho world
and tho rest of mankind have becomo ft
miliar with the prosenco of tho dlu-iso
after it has bscouio as com mon r.t runcid
butter in a Cairo grocery. We huvo on
occasions believed that It would bo a
wiser policy In tho board to take prompt
aud public action when an epidemic dis
vase it approaching towurli our city, to
prepare to repute it, und.abuvo all things,
to act frankly with the poop I u and tell tho
truth, the wholo truth aud nothing but
tho truth. Howovor, wo aro willing to
wave all such fogy opinions, and allow
the authorities to work in secret their
wondurt to parform -but wo would like
to know that tlmy aro working, it will
not do to wait until this tornble disease Is
upon us, and then begin to work. The

The .Memphis 'Ledger' In discussing the

noxious vapor or inhalation which springs
from the ll.sured surface of drying up

with tho diluvium ol a deno population.

where the atmospheric poison is to vlo.unt
