The 'Christian Unity' Is tho name of a

the purposo of which is to prepare tbo

vocate no union with anti-Evangelical
men, and to oppose such organic unity as
exists in the Roman Catholic church.
This new paper shoots high nnd may hi-
the mark ut which it alms, but wo are
inclined to boliovo it will run aground on
the beach of impecunloslty, on which very
many religious Journals havu bocn

general rule, hi dry as tinder. They are
not read, and ought not to bo; they are

Th testator. Tho'-UM O. Dune-
car, who mndo a largo fortune by oil speculation-,
died some lima In tbo spring of

various Methodist obtirchoJ nnd schools,
nnd bequeathing to James Long, nnd
Hlshop Simpson, both of Philadelphia, nnd
both Methodist-, tho sum of fifty thousand
dolia-a rojpectively. Tho docoased was
unmarried nnd bis property, In
thu event of tliu will being
declared invalid, will pass into tbo
bands of Ills brothers, who are tbo con
testants in tho case, and who aro endeav
oring to provo that tho testator was not
of sound mind nnd not capablo of making
a will liko the ono In question. Tho wit
nones for tho contestants, among whom
nro several prominoi.t mon of the state,
and half a Jo.on physicians, testify to
the weakness, physically and mentally, of
Duncan, and mako a vory good caso for
tho contestants. On tbo other side thu
witnesses nro mostly members of thu
Mothodlst cburch, prcachorJ tuymeii and
several physicians, and nmong thorn nro
James Long, legatee in Ilia sum of thirty
thousand dollars, and Ilishop Simpson,
legatco In tho sum of fifty thousand dol
lars,' Tho bishop's testimony whs to tho
effect that ho rated Duncan as k man of
nvcrngo mind nnd fully awaro of whet ho
was about when ho mado his will. Tbo
revernnd gentleman, it Is said, evinces n
very strong desiro to provo tbo sanity of
tho testator, and thus get hold or Ufty
thousand dollars willed to blm. Tho caso
bas attracted much attontlon, both on ac
count of money nt stnko and tho ft bio

Til K HRALTHITLNF.SS 01' THE
Epidemics havo visited many of tho
cilios near Cairo, but our city has been
pared tho presence of any pcstilonco or
opMemlo disease. That this fact will work
to our bencQl no porson can doubt who bas
etven any nltutition to thu subject. In
past ycart It was tho hnblt of pcoplo not
acquainted with Cairo, to call it n "pcstl
lontial hole," In which doath lurked ready
to claim nny porson who bad thotomerlty
to locato hero as his legitimate prey. Al
most every person who know anj thing
about Cairo was familiar with this report
of tho unhealthy character of the city.
Tho consequenco was that many persons
havo been dotorrol from locating here.
Tho man of wealth would not como to
Csirtrtu invest his money. Ho bollored
that residenco here was death, nnd prc-
forod lire with small gains elsewhere.
Of lalo years facts have beon disabus
ing tbo public mind, nnd Cairo Is fast ob
taining that credit for hcnlthfulncss tho so
richly merits. Epidemics puts us by un
scathed, nnd wu point to a death rato
smaller than that of nny city of tho samo
population in tbo Uriitod States. Last
winter tho smallpox ravaged bt. Louis
nnd MemphU. Steamboats put ou at our
wharf hundreds of cases of that loatbsomo
disease, but U did not becomo epidemic.
Vory lw not half ft do7.on vihUa vco-
plu dlod with tho dlseaso, and thojo who
did wero infected whllo visiting bt. Louis
Tbo cholera was in Memphis, Pnducab,
Carml, St, Louis all about us but Cairo
escaped. Tho stoamboat (Uuo) that
carried thu yollow fever to Mom
phis, also brought it to Cairo,
but in Memphis tho disoaso became a pes
tilence, whllo in Cairo it was stamped out
beforo it had dono nny great mhcblof.
Theso nro facts which aro fenthors in tho
cap of Cairo, If smallpox and cholera
and yellow fever had attacked and rnv-
agod Cuiro ns thuy did our eistor cities,
our prosperity would havo boon nipped in
tho bud nnd our futuro prospects havo
bocn blastod. No explanation would
havo availed us. Tho city would havo
boon damned as n place unclean tbo hot
bed of disease.
Our authorities may loam from what
wo havo said thstn great responsibility
rtsU upon thein. If by neglect of duty
thoy should allow tho city to become
dirty and nnwhoUomp, nnd then disease
should visit us, thoy will bo donouncoJ,
at thoy should Le, by every man, woman
and child within tho limits of tho cor
poration. They muU bo on tbu alert,
and mako our city disenso-proof beyond
all peradvonture. They should roor
ganlzo tho Hoard of Hoalth, get Into it ut
least threo of our most roputublu pbysi
ciaus, glvo it power to act oli'ectlvcly, and
then suu that it does so net. And wo
would iuggost that this notion should bo
takon without delay. St. Louis nnd
Memphis nro both oxpoctlng it visit from
tbo smallpox and wo should at onco pre
paro to keep tbat disease at a distance.

anurancu Hint no efforts should bospnrod
bv tbo Spanish government to show thu
United States that Its friendship wns more
substantial than more words. Tho utter
nucos wore, it is believed by those who
bavo been ofQclnlly advised oi' them, inadu
in good faith, but tho Spanish government,
like our own, admits ibo fmprnctability of
tbo charnctor of thoso wr . whom it has to
deal in Cuba. Tbo trotn. which
now convulse Spain herself, thus
rendering her nlmost, if not
quiet powerless to act clllclcntly in tbo
affairs of Cuba, nnd restrain uxecssus
which under other circumstances might
bo prevented. At tho cabinet meeting to
day there was n conversation of long con
tlnunnco with regard to Cuban atlairs
gcniirolly, nnd tho position occupied by
tho United States on that eublect. Tlioro
was no diUcronco nmong tho membors of
tho lull cabinet as to our duty in tbo pres
ent and prcspojtive, wbilo awaiting nec
essary olliclal Infoi mation. Tbcro is ns
doubt that tbo admiral and commanders
of tbo ileot In Culan waters will be, if
thoy havo not already been, instructed to
observe orders issued in tbu spring of lbG'J,
when reports cumn to tho navy
doparttnont through tho press und tele

Unit whllo the Unitud Status government
wlihuJ toob-urvo strict neutrality iu re
gard to ditllcultses existing in thu island
of Cuba, thuy could not unsuru thut our
vessels should bo molested lu their lawful
pursuits or overhauled anil examined un
lota llioy vaiin found committing snino
violation of Spanish authority. Tills thoy
could only do by landing arms nnd mu
nition of war. Tho waters butwuen
Cuba nnd thn Unitod States being
used ns a groat high way, all nations vos
sols should not bo noticed unless thoy
wero within n marino leaguo of tho island
nnd not ovon then, unless delected iu como
ovort act. It is probable that tho fleet in tho
South Atlantic will bo incroased without
diday nnd onu or moro vessels sent to
Saotiugo Docuba. Discussions bavotnken
placo in official quartors as to the courso
this government ought to pursue in cam
Spain should bo unablu to onforo tho prin
ciples of international law or violated
those applicable to the high way of na
tions, particularly elfocting vossols eniling
under national ilsg. It has herotoforo
been plainly intimated to Spain
in official communications tbat tho necos
slty might bo Improssod on us to de
cisively unforco tho prlnciplo for which
this government bas earnestly contended.
Tbo futuro will determine when they

to it by Archbishop Manning: A letter
has appeared in tho Man.er 'Journal'
from liisbop Voa Koppior, of Mnlnrc,
addressed to tho German Emperor in
which lottor he U challenged to prove the
assertions against tho loyalty of the Ger
man Catholics contained in his reply to
tho Popo'i letter. It reads n follows ;
I'Your maleity hasTchnrgod us in the faco
of Kuropo with dliloyal Intrigue, Now,
our agitation bns either been conducted
within tho limits of thu laws, nnd In that
caso you wore not justified in bringing
this ugalnst us ; or our conduct has trntib
grossed tbo laws and accordingly wo havo
committed tho crimo of treason. Will
your majesty then order your govern
ment on tho ground of facts which must

and loyalty, at loast allow us to provo to
