It is ruiuorni, -ays a Washington dis

cago, formerly minister to the Argen
tine Bepublio, lias been tendered the
Turkish mission. Gen. White is an In

that It would prevent him from entering

Ex-Secretary Fish has declined the
English mission, but his son Nicholas has
socepteT,the mission to Switzerland. This
is the only special recognition by resi
dent Hayes of any one prominently con
nected with Grant, and Is probably due
to the tact that Mr. Evart's appointment
to Geneva was carried over the vindic
tive prejudice of Grant by the influence
of Secretary Fisb.
The rosTM aster general, by direc
tion of the president, makes thu impor
tant announcement that the post olttce
department Is a business and not a politi
cal Institution, and will be conducted on
business and not on political principles.
The fact that a good oflicer is not a sup
porter of the administration will not be
considered a ground for his removal un
less in his zeal as a politician he neglects
his duty as postmaster. This doctrine
will appal the politicians, but it will
please the country.
Intelligence of a startling character
comet from the southeastern part of
Washington Territory. There Is a lor
mldable rising of the Nez Ptrces Indians
against the settlers on the upper tributa
ries of the Columbia, and a large num
ber of the latter aro reported to huvc
been murdered. The statu ot nfl'ulr is
rendered all the more desperate by the
.sparseuess of troupe in that vicinity,
'there u evidently Intense exclti-inem on
the subject along the whole IV.itli:

From the force of circumstances, as

Of the government.
For these reasons the State Register will

A remarkable Instance of the necessity
wnicn existed for a thorough reform ot
the civil service Is furnished in the 13u
: reau of Engraving and l'rlntlng, which
bee Just undergone a thorough investi
gation by a Commissioner of Treasury
officials selected for Unit purpose by boo
Kt&ry Sherman. Vt hen the examination
began there were 058 poi sons upon the
Sy-rolls of the bureau ; when It ended,
are were about oiie-third that number.
. All toe rest were dead wood, with only
lite enough to uraw their month
',' lr stipend. They had been sad
dled upon ' the bureau by con
gross mm as a last resort, and so thickly
were they crowded together that there
was not even the pretense ot keeping
them employed. They were worse than
HieleM. these stalwart pap-suckers, being
actually In the war of the few who had
tomeUung to do, and extra provision
had to be made of a place to stow thorn
where their Idleuess would interfere the
lea it wit i those who worked. This state
ot tilings was the product of the system
ot congressional appointments which
President Hayes undertook to abolish,
and with the history of the bureau ot
engraving and printing In view no one
can deny that the abolition of the system
was a big gain for civil-service reform.
Vorheea After Morion.
From the Louisville Cour.er-Journul
Jt is an open secret. It a secret at nil,
that the Hon. D. W. Vorhees will con

can Induce Mr. Morton, or seduce liliu, or
taunt him, or kick him into a iint can

body doubts his capacity in those rtcpui !
inents ot the political science,-nml lir
this reason the light to oust him will b
desperate. It would bo hopeless if the
Indiana Democrats did not have in Mr.
Voorheos a chieftain of resplendent pow
ers. Tho contest thus laid out a year In ad
vance will he t ho political event of tho
period, it will attract as much attention
as the (anions strusrglo between Lincoln
and Douglas In 18.. On iu result great
things will depend; because, if Mr.
Vnorhec3 unseats Morton, finally re
deeming the state, Indiana will appear
at the Iront in 1880 as the lcndine Demo
cratic state In tho union. The Indiana
Democracy certainly deserve this, for
they are the gamest, the truest, the no
blest set of fellows in the world. They
don't know what it is to .let
down or back down. Defeat after
defeat has only nerved them
for renewed action. Their conduct las'
year was In every way heroic. It was
not In tho books tor them to uet the man
of their choice, the man who had shared
all their disasters ami never lUnched,
the man whom they felt deserved to
carry the banner iu the fight. .Naturally
the result at St. Louis was bitterly dis
appointing and cruelly depressing.
Naturally they came away discouraged.
But like bravo men, tlicy took their
swear out and fell into line clieci fully
and heartily, nnudful that tho world was
not yet come to an end and hopeful tor
the future. They were richly rewarded
tor their valorous selt-Racrmee. They
put their old emray to flight, took the
state out of his grasp, and sent him fly
ing away to California.
A still greater battle is belore them.
They are to put the last finishing touches
on the already shattered iniMre ot Sit
ting Bull. Led by tho Tall Sycamore of
the Waba-b, au orator, a states
man and a man, they are to start
the hall which is to sweep Kadlcalni
out of existence. Indiana will liU.c us

eqalthe enthusiasm which will bo in
spired when thu lion with the golden
locks begins to roar and shake his mane

music on the hills and In the valleys.

Rochester N'. Y , Democrat and Chronicle.
New York, May HI. It ha oeen of
lute proposed to ruie by public subscrip
tion enough to enable Mr. tvarts to hold
the office of secretary ol statu without
dauiuge to his private inlet e-ts.
One of the best . mires in any sucli
measure would be to .'luoiisti the er-
inont farm, which is said to exhaust the
best part ol his Income. He has 70 head
ot cattle. 200 sheep, Jt horses, and 2"
swine. The extent of land is KM acres.
Last year 2C) tons of hay were cut cost
ing the proprietor not lunch inoro than
double the market price. More than
2.000 bushel ot corn wero raised, at an
estimated loss ol o0 cents a bushel, and,
therefore, ought t j be ol good quality.
His pork is estimated at 20 cents n pound.
and chickens at $3 a pair.
Beeeher last year raised about l.i.nfjO
bushels of onions on his l'eekkill larm.
They cost him $1.50 a bushel, according
to estimate, and as I tie market in tins city
was $1, anv one can send beet to the New
lork market at o0 cents a pound, and
can raise oats at as low a market as $2 a
bushel. Iln butter is rockond at 1.25 a
pound, and his eggs at 73 cents a dozen.
Ileclenrd $40,000hy lecturing last winter.
und It lie maintains such an income he
will be nhle to continue farming.
Gough lectures live times a week, his
fee being S200. He has a farm In Wor
diest which at one time contained 173
acres, lie has no children, but his ex
penses ore very heavy, and, to bring
matters to a snuj? shape, he sold part ol
bis land and reduced his larm to 123
acres, which Is as extensive as his Income
will admit. A few years ago his wife
who was a Yankee irlrl undertook to
raise faicy fowls, which some say ore
very prohtablc. She got up a nice va
riety, and at a rather reasonable cxpene,
for the Shunghius did not cost more
than $73 a pair, the Cochin Chinas, were
a little cheaper, and bantams could he
rated nt from $25 to $10. After stocking
the place with these rare birds, Gotigh it
is said, found that If they were to be
kept up he would "bo obliged'' to lec
ture on Sundays as well as on week days
to make a living. When It cost 15 to
winter a chicken a man needs a good In
come. Tho system was. therefore,
changed, the lowls were abolished, and
regular crops wero tried with a decided
success. As long as (i ouch's' rye does
not cost more than $3 per bushel, and
the other crops are kept at an equally re
duced rate, his present Income will en
able him to live in a yery decent manner.
There is nothing like a farming life for
men who have plenty money.

The rapid growth of Socialism in Ger
many Is shown by tho niinual report
read Bt a recent meeting of the Socialists
at Gotha, at which 171 locnl societies,
numbering 30,335 members, wero pres
ent. From this report it appears that In
1874 they had 370,512 votes, and returned
10 members to the German I'arllment ;
In 1870 they had 550.211 votes, and 50
members, so that In thn-e years they had
Increased nearly 180.000 votes. They
have 41 political journals, 11 trades'
Journals, and 1 mfsoelliineous weekly,
these impprs bavin? 135.000 subscribers.
Iu addition to tho periodical?, they print
many d jcuttenti and pamphlets, aooug
them nn almanc called "Poor Conmd,
ol which 50,000 copies were sold last
Jenr. Among the business transited
at this meeting was the passage ot ono
resolution which may lead to fiture
trouble. Ilerr Krupp, the great liwn
Iron-master, having notilled his 21,000
workmen that he would dismiss any ot

There is one thinir certain, and thai is
that the Indian bureau needs a thoruoirh
overhauling, as It is notoriously corrupt.
It has been badly mismanaged, and,
whether Intentionally or not, has been
run in the interests of a most desperate
crowd of swindling contractors, Orville
Grant and oilier prominent contractors
under tiie Indian bureau have suddenly
madu their appearance In Washington.
fhey are all anxious to hush the Investi
