Hon. W. A. Ricuakdson, known far
and wide as Uld Hill ltlchardson, hut as
umod editorial control of tho Quincy
Ilaraid'. Mr. Itichnrdson, in tho olden
time, was one of the shining lights of tho
Democratic part. Ho was tho right
band of Douglas. Wbethor bo will bo a
auccessful editor remains to be soon. Wo
-wish him success, and hopo bo will stir up
the boys who aro lazying around in his
zto:k of the political woods.
The employing printors of CpringQeld)
taking the "prosiuro" as an excuse, at
tempted to reduce ibo wages of their em
ployes from 40 cents per 1000 ems to 35
cents, with a corresponding reduction in
the weekly salaries, and managed to get
on their hands a stnko. Tho SpringDold
papers are not strong concerns. Thoy can
never hope to bo in such a community.
They must take in sail or bo wrecked.
And yet the 'Resistor' pays only S75 a
month for tho telegraph dispatches, and
tho 'Journal' only JI00 n month, while
The Bulletin pays $200 n month.
"When wo attempted to curtail expenses n
few weoks ago by publishing in tho ovon
tag our patrons raised a loud clamor, tho
result of which may bo that wo shall bo
compelled to discontinue the dispatches
altogether. Wo hopo not, and will not if
woroceivo anything like tho support Cairo
bould give us.
THE CUBAN AFFAIll.
The Spaniards, claiming to bo civilized
aro as barbarous ui Modoc Indians. 01
late years they bavo been occasionally
murdering American citizens and lately
have capped the climax of their brutality
by tho cold blooded slaughter of Gen
Ryan and Mi companions, following
up the dastardly act by tho execution of
the captain, crew and passengers of the
Vlrginius We bavo not had timo to
itady the affair of tho VIrginius, but with
our light on the subject we believo Ryan
and his fallen companions to bavo been
brutally murdered. In the olden times,
when Democrats rul'd tho roost in this
country, foreign nations wero not permit
ted to shoot down American subjects liko
dogs. Then the government protected its
citizens from outrago and rcsentud any
infringement of their rights. We nro glad
to seo that I'rosidont Grant, who has ap
peared apathetic whilo Spain robbed and
murdered our citizeuB with impunity in
tho past, seems to appreciate tho gravity
of the situation; judging from tho tenor
of "Washington dispatches, he has evi
dently concludod that Mr. Fish, tho
Turvoydrop of tho stato department, Is not
to be permitted to longer abuso his confi
dence and riiegraco tho country. Ills
present attitude shows an appreciation of
public opinion, nnd If hu will now go for
ward instoad of backward, hu will tftko
tho steps the pooplo demand of him and
compel Spain to respect tho Amorican
flag; he can do this in no other way than
by threatening hor with puniihmont, and,
if necessary, carrying out tho threats.
She mutt bo mado to foar us. Tho most
effectual way of doing this would bo to
annex Cubu, and whip hor for not up
plauding tho act.
CORPORAL PUNISHMENT IN THE
SCHOOLS CHICAGO AND
Tho board of education of Chicago aro
about to abolish corporal punishment in
the schools of that city. In this connec
tion, tho experience, of Now York, which
did away with corporal puniihmont in Its
achools a year or two ago, by a decroo of
its board of education, is not without in
leresi. contrary to expectation, the ex
periment has been found to bo not so bene
ficial in its results as was anticipated. Iu
a long report submitted by tho committee
on teachers to the board of education, tbo
objections to tho contisued abolishment
of corporal punishment, aro given in do
tall. In arriving at their conclusions tho
commUteo availed themselves of
the toilimony of twenty-flvo prln
clpals of male grammcr schools
some of whom It was known'
uau vuiuuiariiy unpeniea wun corporal
punlshmont before Its abolition by the
liQird nf ulnp.l nn. Tl. ..n.,t,..n
..ur. wero u.iani.i.ou.iy in lavor ot
restoring to tbo principals or male schools
the rlcbt to inflict bodilv rjuniihtnoiil
UDon Incorriitlblo bovs. thov bavin? found
from experience, that without such right
on their part, pupils no longer yield
prompt obedience to the just and reasona
ble requirements 01 toacners; thoy are
more frequently wilfully and defiantly
disobedient than formerly; pity truant
more frequently; pay loss attention to
personal cleanliness, and to tho euro of
books, slates, etc.; aro not afraid to show
gross dltobedlonce when tho authority of
teacher conflicts witu tnoir own lucuna
tioni or doilres ; In casos whero boys havo
widowed mothers they often defy all au
tborily, nnd drift from tho schools into
tho streets; It js often found nccossaryto
call in tho hid of a fathor to tutduo a
refractory boy, thus loiionlng tho author
ity cf tho teacher and causing incon
vcnloco and often loss to a parent, and
lastly, that juvonllo lawlessness and crlmo
hnvo largely Increased slnco school boys
havo no longer tho fear of thu rod bo-
foro their oyes and that mnny, who might
bavo been reformed under tho old system,
havo had to bo taken out nnd placed in
reformatory institutions, "wheru they
would bo made mind."
Upon tbeso considerations, the commit
tco on tcachors linvo been led to tho
conclusion that no real good, but on tho
contrary, positive ovll, has resulted from
tho abolishment of corporal punishment
in tho schools of how lork city, nnd rec
omtnond to the board of 'education to
confer upon tho toachors uf tho malo
schools tho right to inflict corporal pun
isbment whon It is deemed necessary, nnd
under such restrictions that tho privilege
will not bo abused iu tho hunds of an
over-exacting, pasilonato or tyranlciil

which shock tho untiro civilized world.
Tho patienco of thu government teems to

ing towards tho United States, thu law
of self protection is lecognlzod by our

prominent officers of our government an

by lottor or telegraph. Our naval officer
will ho instructed to inquire dillluuLtlv
nnd closoly into tho condition of tho nf-

Senator Harlan, who onjuyi tho con
fidence of tho udmiuiitrutiori, in his pa
per this morning, speaks ns follows in re
gard to tho latest butchery: In the f Into,
wur and navy dopirtmenln yesterday the
news created unusual excitement, nnu
whilo it is not prudent to nnnounuotho

lic can roitmsured that whatever present
complication may arise, tho government
of tho United States will ho in n condi
tion to act promptly nnd effectively. On
woro issued iu both thu war and navy do-
purtments looking towards cortain pro
parations to guard against any contin
gency. II, as there is too mucli reason
to lenr, thn nows Miould prove
to bo true, thoro can bo put littlo
doubt thu action of our government will
ho prompt nnd carnntt. Spln ought to
understand that such outrages against hu
manity, civilization nnd tho spirit ol tho
co as havo reconlly been perpetrated in
Cuba tindor tho guise of what is called
Spanish military law, can no lunger be
tolerated on this continent. Tho public
no less than tho coveriiment, await fur

this reported inhuman nnd bloody trag
Thu session of thu cabinet to-iluy lusted

ant which has taken placo under President

tratod by Spanish authorities nt Santiago
DoOuba lormod tuu suDjucl 01 serious
coiikideration, nnd definite action toward
maintaining thu dignity of thu Unitoi
States in tho existing complication wus
taken. Whilo all thu members uf tho
cabinet nro oxtromoly reticent as to tho
naturo of tho conclusion reached to-day,
It may bo suid that tho administration is
thoroughly in accord with the sentiment
of thu pooplo of tho country ; tho cuursu
of tho authorities win uu iieuriuy up-
irovud. Ono member of th) cabinet,
when approached on tho auljoct, replied :
"As to tlio naturo 01 tuu nutiun ugreoa

THE l-KOl'LK WILL 11 K HATlbKIKU."
Immediately nftor tho adjourning of tho

out lor son several vohuls now laid up,and
then witli thu chief of thu bureau on

such vessels with compliments of mon,
stores, etc. Afi'ulrs nbout tho department
wero conducted witli secrecy. nrious
rumors nro circulated to-uicht ns to the
determination of tho cibinot. Ono of
which is thnt thauovcrmnent will demand
immediately tho arrest nnd punishment of

ornment so seriously complains, ami u tnu
Oustilnr irovornment shall bo unnulo to
civo the required satisfaction, that tho
government will proceed to extreme
measures nocemary to obtnin it, Though
no cabinet oflicor admits directly that this
Is onu of tho conclusions arrived nt.
Thoro is noposltlvo denial that thoro Is
reason to believe thnt onu of tho subjocts

uation, wus that nf thu Spanish

Now York, nnd that it wns romnrkod In
