The Indianapolis Journal, a Repub

pose we had Greeley for President
now." Well, he could not possibly have
made matters worse than Grant has.
Grant is reported as saying to Chief
Justice Cartter, of the District of Co
lumbia, on the 18th inst., that he in
tended to inaugurate a sterner policy
wish regard to Cuba than has prevailed
in the past.

The Washington correspondent of
the Cincinnati Commercial states that
sini-e the financial crash, which began
just two months ago, there has been an
unusual increase of litigation, and two
hundred and ninety-five suits on ac
count of dishonored notes and accounts
have been entered in the courts of the
District of Columbia.
Wm. M. Tweed has been found
guilty of the charges preferred against
him. There are two hundred and four
founts in the indictment, and now
comes Mr. Tremain, of counsel for the
prosecntion, and demands that he shall
be sentenced on each count. The
"Boss" has the prospect of a pretty
long imprisonment before him, if he
should only live long enough to serve
out the term or terms.
The lattest nominee for the next Gov
ernorship is Sam. P. Ivius, the favora
bly known editor of the .Athens Post.
We believe the nomination originated
with the Knoxville Chronicle. "Uncle"
Sam deserves a better sponsor. If
elected, the Jackson Whig and Tribune
promises to read his messages a thing
it hasn't done since the days of Felix
Grundy. As has been remarked, the
Tennessee Democracy might go further
and fare worse.
The New Yorh Tribune of the 17th
inst. publishes very full reports from
Rhode Island, touching the business
ail'airs of that State. The statement of
thefinancial condition of Hoyt, Sprague
A. Co. shows a balance of $2,321,252 in
assets over total liabilities. The state
of trade in the Southern portion of the
State is reported as being in a less
nourishing condition than that in
Northern Rhode Island. There are,
however, but few complete stoppages
among the mills, and the general im
pression is that the worst is over.
The Neio Yorl: Tribune has assumed
the role of "Old Probs." in the matter
of the Cuban question. It takes it for
"1. That our Government has de
manded full reparation for the outrage
committed against our national dig
nity. "2. That Spain cannot exert sufficient
authority in the Antilles to satisfy our
3. That in default of the action of
the Spanish Government the President,
under authority of Congress, will take
the necessary measures to vindicate our
own rights in the matter.
"4. That as a result of this, Cuba
will cease to be a Spanish possession,
and will, in all probability, become a
part of the United States."
We shall see.
The Jackson Herald discourses of the
Cuban question in a clarion key, which
proves that the "Volunteer State" has
lost none of its olden fire:
-Will the land f Patrick Henry,
Washington, and Lee. and the tens of
thousands of their kindred spirits, who
sleep in heroas' graves, stand silent and
inactive now, when the blood of Ameri
can citizens, "spilt in the holy cause of
liberty," cries trom the ground for ven
geance upon the cruel enemies of the
human race, who rule and reign in
Cuba ? We trust not. This is no time
for empty apologies. Spain cannot
give what she hath token away. The
heroes of the Virginius who imperiled
their lives and fortunes in the cause of
Cuban independence, "sleep the sleep
that knows no waking." But great will
be the "recompense of their reward,"
if, in their death an independent State
is made alive, and the blessings of lib
erty secured to hundreds and thousands
.f the oppressed and down -trodden
pt-ople of the most beautiful island of
WJIATS WASTKD? '
The New Yorl: Tribune is responsible
for the assertion that 'Senator Morton
and Governor Washburn of Wisconsin,
agree that the late disastrous defeat of
their party was due to 'want of inter
est.' " All a iniE,take. It was the want
of principle developed by party mana
gers that kept the people from the
polls. It was clearly a question of
principle, not interest Memphis Ava
lanche. Just so. The people demand a re
turn to first principles to the princi
ples of political integrity and common
honesty good old-fashioned principles
which have been rendered almost obso
lete by the "progress" of Radical cor
ruption. As our Memphis confrere re
marks, "it was clearly a question of
principle' ' that induced the people in the
recent elections to reverse the verdict
of 1872. It is no childish fancy for a
new name, but a question of principle.
It is things, not names, which the peo
ple want changed. When they ask for
bread, let us not give them a stone.
The Democracy has preserved througb
all these years of usurpation and
corruption, the old principles
of constitutional government, which
lie at the basis of the American sys
tem. In the darkest hours of section
al prejudice it has not failed to preach
them. Each successive violation of
them by the strong arm of power, has
been exposed and denounced by it.
Like the Swiss mountaineers, defending
their homes from the Austrian invader,
it has continually harrassod the ad
vancing destroyer of honest, pure and
cheap government. It is due to the
continual presentation of fundamental
principles by the Democracy iba, we
hare-still left enough of the conatitu
tion on Tvhicb to base bright hopes for
the future. Its restraints on Radical
ism are well illustrated by the parii4
redemption of the South. In allproba
bility, the several States would still be
held as conquered provinces, according
to the original Radical programme, but
for the eoid opposition of the Democ
racy. It was only when thus forced
from that position, that the Radicals
resorted to negro suffrage aa a
means of retaining political power
in those States. Again, without the
unanimous opposition of the Democra
cy, the Radicals would have inaugu
rated Mexican chaos in this country by
the impeachment of a President. The
defection of a single Democratic Sena
tor would have secured them success in
this game of hazard to the life of the
nation. When a fifth-rate politician
like Ben. Wade could, unrebuked, vote
on his own case, for .the impeachment
of his superior officer and his own ele
vation to the Chief Magistracy, the na
tion was certainly on "the dangerous
verge of things." Had this Radical
conspiracy succeeded had the icq teen
once broken all history "warns us that
other like conspiracies would follow;
other Wades would be found, and,
more or less rapidly, we would, with
all our boasted intelligence and
civilization, lapse into the
condition of miserable Mexico, through
political intrigue and lust for pelf and
power. Again, without the steady op
position of this old party, Grant's pet
San Domingo scheme would long sinca
have triumphed, in the annexation of
hybrid races who could be assimilated
into our system. In a thousand minor
matters, with important local bearings,
the march of corruption toward central
ization has been checked. The country
owes to the Democracy the fact that it
still has a future as a free country.
That party has preserved all the sound
principles of political polity, of which
the now awakened people are in search.
It is in fact the reservoir of principles
from which Conservatism, Liberalism,
Anti-Monopolism, and all these mis
called new parties, draw their
very life -blood. They contain
absolutely nothing but may
be found with the old historic party.
They proclaim no principle which it has
not been proclaiming all these years.
They are not new parties not parties
at all they are the first efforts of a
people awakening from along lethargic
sleep and who do not yet fully under
stand their surroundings. Verge ac
ccepisti: let the Democracy proceed in
the good work. Soon the people must
appreciate the situation, and seeing the
beacon light which has been held aloft
through all the storm, will follow i fo
victory. Last year Carl Schurz went
out from Radicalism, 'but said he
could never be a Democrat. Perhaps
he did not understand Democracy,
having seen it only through Republican
spectacles. We have no reason to doubt
his honesty; if honest, he will sonic
day be older and wiser; and we
think him frank enough to confess an
honest error. There are a thousand
ties that deter Carl Schurz from be
coming an avowed and active Democrat.
The people at large are hampered by no
such tics, and will act on their convic
tions, Brethren, weary not of well do
ing: the future is bright and brighten

Prof. Chandler delivered an address
on-the chemistry of water used for cul
inary and drinking purposes, before
the American Health Association, in
New" York, in whici he cites tables of
death rates compiletl "by Dr.'Leth'efby,
of. England, to prove that the more
lime and magnesia salts Bpring orjriver
water contains, the longer the people
live who consume it. He says :
" In townajf England and Scotland
where the iMfeess of water is 16 grains
to the gaUonjMie death rate ia 21 9-10;
where thearaness is 8 grains the death
rate is 24 9-10, and where it is 3 8-10,
the death rate is 26 in the 1,000. Itre
quires a very large quantity of mineral
imnuritics in water to make them ob-
iefitionabLi. Water micht contain
thirty-five grains of mineral matter to
the gallon and not be objectionable,
and that is veryrarely reached by any
city supply. With regard to the or
ganic impurities in water, living plants
are rarely qujectionauie; on ine cou
trary they are often advantageous. Cer
tain nlante rmrif v the water, for they lib
erate oxygen ozonized oxygen which
is of the best kind. It very rarely oc
curs that the living animals in water
are obiecfcionable. It is impossible to
tet a sample of river or lake water that
oes not contain living animals; but
these are almost in every case Harmless,
It has happened that parasitic worms
have been introduced into the body by
drinking water, and it ig said that one
sixth of the deaths hi Iceland occur
from this cause."
flniiRidermp1 'the crreat variety of
O O -
mineral compounds soluble in water,
and often found in solution, and the
equally large number of plants and ani
mals that live in the same water, it is
not only natural, but necessary, that
these things should not absolutely
poi&on this fluid in its relations to hu
man life, or life in any of its higher
forms. But is life in warm-blooded
animals, including man, dependent on
water in springs, ponds and
rivers for any salts of iimts and magnesia
found in their bones or flesh? Man's dai
ly food supplies these earthly minerals,
We have iio doubt that Dr. Lethcrby is
mistaken in the opinion that iho jp-
L crease of lime in drinking water makes
it hotter or promotes longevity. Life
is lengthened by other sanitary agents
and influence in spite of the adycrse
action of impure water. Families that
have ceased to use water that is highly
charged with salts of lime, soda and
magnesia, taken from the ground, and
used filtered rain wtiter instead, have
found great benefit from the change.

Gen. Garfield, of Ohio, expressed
the opinion in an interview with a cor
respondent of the New York Tribune
the other day in Washington, that the
bankrupt law, or at eat the involun
tary features of it, would be repealed
early in the coming session of Con
gress. ne represents tne demand lor
i'epeal in business circles as almost
unanimous, since the operation
of the involuntary clause, which
enables a creditor to tnrow a
debtor into bankruptcy who does not
meet his obligations promptly, without
regard to his real solvency, is often un
just and injurious in ordinary tunes,
but in a monetary crisis it is particu
larly so. The General expects to see a
flood of financial measures introduced
at the beginning of the session, most of
which will be visionary and valueless. He
has found froni long experience, that
the confidence with which Congressmen
support such schemes is in pretty exact
inverse ratio to their knowledge of the
subiects involved. The sea of talk
upon which both houses will launch,
will, he believes, effectually drown most
of these bills and perhaps save the
country from the evils of ignorant and
precipitate legislation. The great dan
ger, he thinks, iB that a bill for the in
flation of the currency by the issue of
more greenbacks, will berushed through
at the outset, without much considera
tion. He has no doubt that a strong
pressure will be brought to bear for
such a measure, and that a large num
ber f tl10 new members will favor it.
Gen. Garfield's fears are shared by a
large number of thinking, prudent men,

gives the number of the crew at sixty

that all the crew except eighteen had

A STRONGER HANK SYSTEM.
Before the war between France and
Germany, on April 7, 1870, the Bank
of France had coin and bullion to the
amount of-251,000,000. Its circulating
notes were 280,000,000, and its depos
its $160,005,000. It will be seen that
its specie was nearly equal to its circu
lation, and its rate ox interest ou c-Jj-counts
was two and a half per cent. It
was regarded as the greatest and strong
est bank in the world. So late as Oct.
23, 1873, it had 145,000,000 specie in
its vaults, with a circulation, increased
by the war to 598,000,000 and 70,
000,000 deposits. It has not suspended
specie payments . in many years. The
trouble with our currency system is
that it is too full of gas without sub
stance. It goes up like a rocket and
comes down like a stick. Thousands
of poor families are now thrown out of
work and wages at the commencement
of winter when employment and in
come are most needed, Our banking
system is notoriously rotten at the core.
