Itcause it w ill, among other things, have
the effect of lessening Grant's chances of
nomination for the presidency in 1880. The
fStatcs carried by the Republicans represent
-a majority of the electoral vote, and so long
s the party feels a tolerable degree of
rertainty that it will maintain its hold ujkui
twin, so long will Grant stand no chance
f 'r the nomination. The leaders are wil
ling to give him a forlorn hope, but the
"good chances" they intend to keep for
their Blaines and Conklings. Hence wc
conclude that the late elections Inflicted a
'erriblc blow upon Grantism, and put his
nomination out of the range of probabilities,
No standard-bearer of the Egyptian

him from defeat, and would huve saved no
man of his party similarly situated. Demo-

No observing man can fail to see that the
elective franchise system in this country is
swiftly drifting to the bad. The great
fraud of two ye:.rs ago, and the promotion
of the villains who committed it to offices
of high trut and emolument, has had a cor
rupting effect everywhere. Men are so ready
to profit by such iilainy, and to reward
and applaud the scoundrels guilty of it,
that the public is learning to regard it. not
in the light of scoundrclisni; but as sharp
practice, or shrewd political strategy. If
such villainous practices go much further,
honest men will no longer regard our elec
tions ns a means for gaining expression of
the public will, but as a device for the
achievement of the aims of rascals, in spite
of the popular will. The outlook is uu un
promising one, and ought to claim the seri
ous attention of all honest men who would
rescue the system from a growing pollution
that will, in the end, work out its over
throw. Tin-: theft of Stewart's body lias revived

Gk.v 1 ,00 ax once said, during a speech
in Cairo, in explanation or a vote of his
against extending the rights or naturaliza
tion to the Chinese, thut "so help him God,
lie would never vote to make an American
citizen out of any creature that Itowed
down to wood or stone." Such a reason
for denying the Mongolian citizeuship is
fully as weighty as any that can be assign
ed for the murderous assaults upon that in
offensive race by the Thugs of California.
Be this as it may, the fact can't be denied
that the Chinese on the Pacific coast are a
terribly abused people, and enjoy no rights
whatcTer for which American citizens have
any respect. They are beaten mobbed and
shot down like dogs, and the arm of
the law is never interposed for their
protection. Now we are no admirer of
the race. On the contrary we regard
them tis a curse to the country and u blight
upon the fairest portion of tho western
hemisphere. ISut they are human beings,
and entitled to consideration as such. The
come to our shores under treaty rights; are
represented ut our national capital, nnd were
never known to wantonly Invade the rights
of others. But all this does uot save them
from the bludgeons and bullets of Califor
nia mob. They are pursued in a relentless
and merciless manner, deprived of rights
that ur' willingly accorded to the most de
graded of the. white or black . races,
und threatened with utter annihilation.
To such a puss have affairs come at lust
that one of three things is inevitable. The
government must extend over them the
strong arm of tho laws, or tear the Uur
lingame treaty into shreds and arrango for
the Mongolian's eaceable removal from the
country, or, else the laloring classes of the
Pacific slope will attempt their utter exter
mination. In view of the temper of our
people, then, tho most humane thing that
could bo dono would bo to remove them
front our midst, effectually closu our ports,
and sternly deny them future admittance.

14 SLIME PITS " IN GOTHAM.
No sort of literature that finds its way to
the public through the columns of newspa
pers, is reud with more interest and avidity
than Rev. DewittTulinsge's sermons on the
" Night Side of New York Life." They are
almost its nasty as the details of Ileecher's
trial, though clothed in the speaker s purest
English. Below wo give u sample, from
which the reader may judge of the charac
ter of the whole. We quolj from hi ser
mon of Sunday a week ago. His text was:
"And tho vale of Siddam was full of slime
'About six months ao," said Mr. Talmftj;e, "a
gentleman In Angusta. (iu., w rote to mo requesting
that I preach upon this text. The time has now
come fori). Our American cities are full of slime
pits, into which tn thounnd people are falling
night by night. Recently I explored some of the
New York slime pits. Why did I do It r I'll tell you:
I was sitting in the sanctum of one of the editors ol
a New York paper, when he turned to me uni said:
"You ministers don't know what you are talking
about when you preach about the dissipation of a
great city, and wo laymen know you dou't. Now
if you want to leant the subject, I'll get tou the
highest official escortage. I told him in the name
of the Lord I'd go lu the autumn. Sow ithasnl
hhys been a deliberate plan of mine w hen I am
going to do anything great for the Lord to do It In
such a way that the devil w ill advertise It free gratis,
for nothing. That Is the reason I gave two weeks'
uotlce of these sermons. There l one thlug I did
not see tho other night, which surprised
me. I saw bankers, broker aud merchants there,
but there was one class 1 missed. I lookod
for it iu the galleries, on the stairways, in the gar
deli, bul I did uot find It. I refer to the hard work
ing class." The statement was received with such
applause as the Tabernacle has not heard lor t long
time. It seemed to act like a spur on the pastor.
"You tell me." bo cried w lib a yell, "that they cau't
afford it, 1 tell you they can. Entrance for women,
nothing; eutrance for men, twenty-five cents.
Laughter. O, these places arc not supported by
the working clns. They draw their living from
men who go dowu to business ut 9 o'clock in the
munilng and get out at il o'clock In the aflcrnoou.
They are the ones who have got the money to buy
a ticket the Orand Trunk railway to bell, and
that train makes nosfnp till it comes to the grand
smash. More applause. 1 These are the divinely
blessed young meu who have pocket case full of
Ilavma cigars, w ho refresh themselves ut Di lnion

THE GREAT MERCHANT ALIVE
The stealing of A. T. Stewart's dead and
partially decomposed body from its vault
iu a New York cemetery, has led some of
our exchanges into n discussion of the
merits and demerits of tint gentleman dur
ing his somewhat lengthened, and wonder
fully prosperous lii'e-time. In a very just
criticism of his character tJie Missouri
Republican gives him credit for business
talent, industry and energy no less wonder
ful than his marvelous success in busi
ness. He. died worth flO,000X)00.
But contemplating Mr. Stewart upwit from
his success as a business man, we find little
in his character to admire, or to commend
the young men of the country to strive to
imitute. No negro slave that ever toiled in
the rice fields of Alabama, or the cotton
fields of South Carolina, worked harder or
devoted more hours to his work than Alex
ander T. Stewart. He had, as the Republi
can declares, no leisure for recreation. He
felt that he could not afford to enjoy him
self, although the possessor of un
told millions. In eaily and mid
dle life his struggle was to make
money. In his old age the struggle
was quite as hard to take cure of it. He
did not own his money. His money own
ed him, aud used him as its slave. It is
doubtful, whether he ever had a genuine
holiday after ho emerged from his state of
adolescence. He out grew all taste for holi
days, if he ever had any, and became sim
ply a grcut money-machine; a sort ofhu-
muu mint, grinding out dollars day and
night, und finding his supremo delight in
the mere process of production. So he be
came very rich, and died worth f 40,000,000.
He was envied by thousands of persons far
happier than himself; for is not poverty,
according to the world's standard, the
greatest of curses, and riches the greatest of
blessings f Ho might have done a vast
deal of good with his wealth while living;
but beyond the building of o few tenement
houses we are not owarc that he did any
thing. No great hospital, na great library,
no great school, no great gallery of art,
no great fund for the worthy poor owes its
origin to his liberality, lie purchased
nearly everything else, but he did not pur
chase that precious immortality which
comes from magnificent benevolence.
Such a mau was Alexander T. Stewart liv
ing. " Alexander T. Stewart dead," forms
the burden of the metropolitan newspapers
just now, and to them we courteously refer
the curious reader.

Fact VKitsis TtiKonv. On August 2,
187H, Western I'nion Telegraph st'jck sold
itl the New York Stock Exehange for 81 j2
per share. September 18th, 1878, this same
stock sold at Vri a lluctuution of 11'
per cent, in 47 days. 10,000 shares of this
stock, bought ut 84'j on a margin of 1 per
cent, required an actual capital of )jf 10,000.
The same stock sold at the advanced price,
Mj, showed a protit of $1,175 per 100
shares, or ll'.j per cent, on the stock. On
the whole 10,000 shares tho actual profit
was $117,500 or 11, times the capital used
within the brief space mentioned. People
often theorize alMHit supposable cases. The
above are hard facts shown by the official
record. Very few persons, however, are
able to invest singly the $10,000 necessary
to reap such fabulous profits as were gained
by tho above transaction, but Messrs. Law
rence & Co., bankers, 57 Exchange Place,
New York City, have issued a new circular
showing how large or small sums may be
used successfully in stock speculations by
their new Combination Method of pooling
thousands of orders into one immense sum,
nnd operating them us a whole, which
places every customer on an equality with
the largest operators, and divides profits
prorata, among shareholders every !)0 dftys.
By this system lurge profits are made in
short periods. $15 would make $75, or five
per cent.; $50 pays $H50,or seven percent.;
$100 makes $1,000, or ten per cent, on the
stock during the month, according to the
market. The new circular explains every
thing; also contains "Two unerring rules
