If Professor Gamgee can fully demon
strate his uliility to freeze out all germs of
the yellow fever mid other epidemic dis
ease?, on board incoming ocean vei'K the
necessity fur a vigul ntttinital (jutiiMntine
will lie ohviuU'd. livery uvtiole 0:1 snip-
board, the clothing of .the passenger", the
sails, froigltt.s, baggage, ete., nm.t be sub
jected to the freezing process, or we'll have
no guaranty against the importation of the
scourge again. As a single inlccte;! pas
senger might bring about a repetition of
last year's horrors, it seem to us that the
freezing system can scarcely be made suiii
cieutly rigorous to all'ord us undoubted
protection. Detention for a period of four
teen days, in safe quarantine quarters- has
proved ctlieieut, and we should dislik", very
much, to see it abandoned for an experi
ment. TniiiiK is a "crying want" of physicians
in southern Roumania, Five out of every
hix of those who spent the summer in the
neighborhood of the Danube, died of ma
larial fever. Such as remain command
one hundred copecks per visit; but it has
usually followed that the physician
survives just about long enough
to cam enough copecks to pay bis
funeral expenses. It would be a blessing
to Illinois if the state were compelled to
furnish Roumania with all the doctors she
needs. Ye have, scattered through our
hundred and and one counties, about one
thousand licensed poisoners, who have, dur
ing the ten years past, killed oil, in their res
pective neighborhoods, considerably more
than tho natural increase of population.
Put these fellows in Roumania, and they'll
soon stop the plague, by leaving it nothing
to feed on.
Skn.vtou Lam.vk is imbibing notions of
royalty is outgrowing, the times in which
we live is evidently "put out" with the
exceeding simplicity of our form of gov
ernment. Senator Lamar is a Democrat,
an eloquent orator, and all that; but he can
find no justification in considerations of
that kind, for m iking an aristocratic ass of
himself. He declares that every one of
our seventy-six S'-nators ought to have a
private secretary, and the government
onght to pay the secretaries. This is only
the first step. The next will be that every
Senator ought to have a mansion, his sta
bles of elegant steeds, his barber und hair
dresser, and all the troop of lacqueys and
footmen that attend on royally. The way
to prevent a gradual approach to tin's ex
treme, is to give to Senator Lamar's secre
tary bill such a stamp of indignant disap
proval that nobody else ill have the har
dihood to repeat his experiment.
So mit 1 1 of the present session of the
45th Congress has been consumed by the
llepublican element therein, in the work of
Prenident-tnaking, that much hasty und un
matured legislation must be lmpos-d upon
the comilry, if the matters yet pending are
disposed of during the seven weeks of
time that remain. Tho lobby see, in the
haste that must now characterize legisla
tion, a chance to put in good work, and
propose to improve ils opportunity. The
bills in which the country is most deeply
concerned are the Inter-State Railroad bill,
the sugar tariff, the Urazil steamship mail
line, the Texas Pacific railroad bill, the
Geneva award distribution and proposed
Improvement of western and southern
rivers. Matters of somewhat less moment
aro the reorganization of the army, the
Electoral bill, the Pension bureau ream-
struction, and perfection of improved ar
rangements for the taking of the census of
1880, To dispose of these measures, tho
Republicans must bo choked oh from their
Presidential work, ami all parlies must bu
moved by an earnest desire to serve the
country and not their party. There must
be watchfulness, and such an exhibition of
industry as has not been seen in thecapitol,
since the reins of government passed to the
control or the llepublican parly.
1(i;itui.k ax journalists ol strong-know-nolhing
proclivities can't forget the slight
put upon Grant by the Corkonians. They
belabor the authorities of that Irish city as
a set of boors who disgrace the very name
of the Irishman, and call upon Irish-American
citizens to disavow any sympathy with
the insult put upon an ex-president of the
United States. Irish-Americans propose to
do no such thing. As an American citizen
Grant dcrved, perhaps, a little b.'tter treat
ment, but the citizen couldn't be seperat
ed from the ex-Prieshh nt. and as an ex
IVsident he di'served all he received. If
there is an clement of American population
that Grant cordially hales, that clement is
the Irish clement. In war and politics alike
he ignored the Irish, and as a hater of the
Catholic church, he is matchless. The Cor
koiiians were not unmindlul of all this, and
didn't feel inclined to play the part of hypo
crite That's the whole thing in a nut shell.
On Monday lat, Mr. Charles Schermer,
for the five years past deputy circuit clerk
of Randolph county, committed suicide, by
shooting himself through the temples with
a Smith & We.-son revolver. The Chester
Clarion referring to the matter says that
Schermer was sitting on a lounge in his
owu home, his little three-year old boy
playing at bis feet, when the desperate deed
was consummated. The little boy ran to the
adjoining room where the balance of the
family were at breakfast, and communi
cated the iute'iiiirenee that "papa had hit
himself and fallen down." The wife
entered the room and found her husband
lying on the l'oor, 'he brains oozing from
his temples and the weapon lyirg by his
side. The cause aligned i.; mdulge-nce in
strong drink. Dining the three years past
he has been-given to periodical drunks
t'le.t crazed I'liii. and he was just recovering
from one of the-e siirees when he killed
I himself. It is said of him that, when
Mibcr, a more generous, warm hearted,
s tcia'.ly inclined and companiable gentle
man never lived, lie was, too, a most effi
cient and ob'igine; clerk, with whom it was
a real pleasure t do business. Rut whisky,
like death. loving a shining mark, fastened
its fangs on Charley, and death, mercituily
perhaps, released him.
A few of the more savage of the South
American Indians still perforate their
noses, ears and lips, and suspend therefrom
tinkling metal or ivory ornaments. Indi
ans who have made a slight udvance tow-
. 1 - ' I . X ? . 1 ' . 1 . . .
am civilization u:scaru uie nose ami up
ornaments, and, like American ladies, sus
pend metal and bone ornaments from their
ears, fastened in holes bored through the
flesh; and hoop their wrists with metal
bracelets. That our ladi"s do not wear
bells and balls suspended from their noses
may, or may not be chargeable to the fact
that such adornments have been discarded
by the bvtter classes of savages. Concern
ing this we do not care to express an opin
ion; but that many of the real "Ions"
among the ladies have not fallen into
Afghan extremes in that direction, is be
cause we have not. her.! and there, in our
best society, a "sprinkling" of Afghan
female beauties. The hair of these "beau
ties" is of a "glorious blue-black," worn in
various forms, and plastered stiff w ith gums
that it may retain the shape, the artist gives
it. The margins of th" ears are piercei
and decorated with small silver rings,
large gold rings hanging from th
lobes. The eyes are very dark,
and are made to sparkle by a coating of

are rouged and arc dotted with little round
moles of gold and silver tinsel, fastened on
with gum a decided improvement upon
the black beauty splotches of American la
dies, which, ordinarily, are nothing but
little squares of black adhesive plaster.
The Afghan costume is of yellow, blue or
red silk, fashioned into jackets that fall be
low the hips, and over wide trousers of a
different colored silk that are gartered nt
the knee. Silk stockings, an I elaborately
worked slippers complete the costume. The
appearance of these women strikes the
stranger at first, as odd, then as attractive,
and finally as irresistable. Just what the
stranger does when the beauty becomes ir
resistable, we don't know; but that's the
way the "fashion-writers' who followed the
British army put it. Already given to ear
rings and to "car bobs" to the practice of
driving holes through the lobe of the ear,
and fastening therein glass, brass, gold,
diamond, pearl and jet ornaments -it would
lie but a short step for American ladies to
to reach the Afghan style of personal orna
mentation. With one dozen of Afghan
belles in Washington society, gummed hair,
u multiplicity of car-rings and nutiiuouied
eye-lids would become the style, in less than
a twelve-mouth; and the sciety men would
not only approve, but apphVid the fashion.

Prof. Swing, of Chicago, the ablest di
vine in that city, and one- ol the most pop
ular pulpit orators in America, prcacb'S
every Sunday, in McVicker's theater. I'm
discourse last Sunday was founded on ".rn
sationalisin in the Pulpit." To illustate
the difference between live and cnthiwng
preaching, and sluggish harrangueing, the
learned gentleman said:

If Prof. Swing were as well vcrs"d in
Irish history as in theological matters, he
would not have spoken of the Emmet pat
riots as haraaguers of the Irish people. As
is Affirmed by the Chicago Telegraph,
neither Thomas Addis nor Robert Emmet
ever made public "harangue." The laws
against sedition, in the times of Emmit
were very stringent, and were enforced with
great rigor and severity so much so that
freedom of speech in Ireland wasifl'eciualiy
crushed out. Rut Addis and Robert were
promotes and leaders of a powerful secret
organization, that aimed at revolution; but,
as above, stated, neither one of them sought
to forwird his aims by public speeches.
Both ol them were compelled to keep per
fectly oti'u t. Addis Emmet spint very lit
tle time in Ireland after he had grown to
manhi.od. lie and his brother conducted
much of their secret business in France.
Ibid either been so indiccreet as to make
a harangue in Ireland, pu'uieiy, or in
private, to any large r.iin.'eT
of pel's wis, tile government v.i.lhd have
peedi'.y put a stop to their imprudence.
That the vounir'-s't w as callable of the high
est eloquence is manifest from Robert Em
mets speech 111 tne iliick. wlui li, although
imperfectly reported, retnaius the inoft pa
thetic and heroic argument which any man
ever made for the privilege of givirg up
his life in the bloom of youth for his coun
try. Thomas Audis Emmet, after he be
came a member of the American bar and
Attorney-General of New York, was con
sidered an orator of extraoi iin.irv i"-r-
suasiveness and power, ami to this gift of
eloquence hi:;h tribute is paid in the En
glish inscription, written by Gu'ian G.
Verplanck, and the Latin one, by the jurist
John Duer, on Emmet's moaunit :it in St.
Because the Emmets were revolutionists
Frofessor Swing not unnaturally assumed
that they harangued the people. The Pro
fessor might find the material for many
sermons by reading the history of British
rule in Ireland especially with regard to
freedom of speech and freedom of rsiigion.
Both tiie Emmet i were staunch Protestants,
like Professor Swing.
