Tns first fruits of the Zulu war are visi
ble in the demand mado by the British
ministry for & credit of $7,500,000 to pay
the expense of sending out reinforcements
to Natal. This sum, it is announced, is
only preliminary and is necessary to cover
a deficiency that would otherwise appear in
tbe scacon's budget.
. It ib understood that the Democrat of
New York will renominate the present
Kovcrnor. He is the representative of
Ham J. Tildcn in the Empire State-. Should
Lucius Robinson be re-electeS, Tilden
flock will bp higher than ever. Horatio
Seymour says "Governor Robinson should
and will be re-elected."
Mrs. Dora Pedro, of Brazil, has presented
to Queen Victoria, a morning gown, woven
entirely out of spider webs. Its chief rec
ommendation is, we suppose, that it disclos
es the 6hape of the wearer, and fits the form
quite as comfortably as a pun of smoke. It
Is said that during warm weather Mrs.
Pedro wears nothing else.
AxoTnEn search is to be made for the re
mains of the nrctic explorer Dr. Franklin.
One of Hall's assistants is at the hefld of
the movement, and feels confident that
nearch has never been extended in the right
direction. All talk of nn open polar sea he
regards as bosh and nonsens?. It is barely
possible that this tonguey Franklin-hunter
is entirely too wise in his own conceit.
In view of the outbreak of yellow fever
inRioJanerio and our rather intimate
commercial relations with that port, the
newspapers of a number of our Southern
cities are urging the immediate adoption of
necessary precautions against the introduc
tion of that terrible disease into this
country. The papers all agree as to one
fact, and that is that the streets and alleys,
kick yards, stables, cellars, etc. all places
where filth abounds, must Lo cleared up,
and disinfected. Even Louisville that t s
cap'ed last ' year altogether, is about to
adopt rigid sanitary regulations to enforce
cleanliness in all parts of the city, before
the advent of hot weather. If our Cairo
authorities are wise they will imitate this
Something over two mouths ago a citi
zen of Philadelphia, while taking his sup
per in a restaurant, swallowed two falso
teeth, with tho plate to which they were
fastened. Tliey lodged at tbe lower part of
the throat; but by drinking gin he moved
them down to a point about an inch from
tho entrance- to tho stomach, lliffl they
readier! the stomach, the 'chief danger
woujd have been passed; but lodging as
they did the patient conld swallow nothing,
not even milk or water. Any fluid that ho
drank immediately came up, exuding from
his mouth, cars and nostrils. Yet without
a mouthful of nourishment tho mot fellow
lived sevn weeks. From 100 pound lie'
nhrnnk away to a mere skeletou of about
60 pounds not much more than the weight
of his bones and tendons. Ho retained his
sense, to tho lust, and what is most remark-
' able, he never suffered from hunger, t single
moment. Tlkcso facts are gathered from a
column article in the Philadelphia Times of
Making allowances for all the lies that
were sworn to before tho Potter committee,
the conclusion Is still inevitable that hot!
Secretary Shciman and Senator Kellogg
were .deeply implicated in the frauds that
I gave Louisiana to Hayes, in face of over
whelming evidence that the Tilden electors
were chosen by a clear nnd undeniable
majority of more than seven thousand votes,
Tho scoundVolisin that gavo the electoral
vote of Florida to the Republicans, was, it
is clearly proven, engineered by Xoyes, the
Amrricnn minister to thu citV of Paris. Of
-........ . - - - ,
the iruilt of all three of theso men, honest,
conscientious people who read the evidence,
can havo no manner of doubt. It is proven
that they are scoundrels who should bo do
ing service iu tho penitentiary, yet they till
high official positions given to them as
their reward for their villainy ! In contem
plating this fact the patriotic man must in
dulge grave misgivings as to the future of
the Republic. A government under which
such scoundrelism is possible, and is re
warded when successful, cannot continue to
command the respect of tho honest citixen
but must be held as hastening along the
pathway to anarchy and confusion.
Anokll, the sleek oily-tongucd thief who
robbed the Pullman Car Co. that impov
erished firm that can't maintain itself unless
permitted to rob the traveler of $2.00 for a
night's lodging has been sent to Joliet to
Berve a term iu the penitentiary. His trial,
conviction, the sight of the prison nothing
upset his calm philosophy. He seemed
wholly at peace with himself, and affected
to regard a long stay in prison as a period
ot retirement from the cares, besetments and
responsibilities of life. He would be
furnished an opportunity to study
humanity, and he proposed to make
good use of his time to brush up that de
partment of knowledge. It is quite Bafc to
predict that the considerate warden will
not insist upon imposing prison hardships
upon the elegant philosophic Augell,
because, in the first ' place, he
stole $120,000 ; and because, secondly
his imprisonment is a mere form a sort of
a by-play that will terminate as soon a9 his
friends and those who were instrumental
in bringing about his conviction, can per
suade the Governor to open the gates for
him to walk out a free man again. Carriages
and a band of music will be in waiting,
and Mr. Angcll will be escorted back to Chi
cago, where he will be feasted and toasted
as a martyr to Pullman's brutality, and not
as the conscienceless thief and ingrate, the
evidence declares him to be. In less than
twelve month thereafter he will be the occu
pant of a Wabash avenue stone-front man
sion, the President of a Chicago savings
bank a violent religionist, and the noted
patron of the poor, whose savings he will
be squandering at the rate of 30,000 an

TIO." Col. Watkins. of Pulaski county, has ad
dressed an "open letter" to W. W. Rariv
Esq., Chairman of the Democratic Judicial
district committee, in which he employs
the following language. The manifest
purpose of Republican leaders to make the
pending content a political one, gives the
Colonel's words peculiar force. He says:

Hardly any one doubts now that there
will be an extra session. For the first time
since they hold the house the Democrats
urt showing a determination to stick to
gether on questions on which the Radical
senate disagree with them. It is under
stood that the house Democrats have ngreed
that the appropriation bills Khali mil miss
unless the test oath and election supervisor
laws are repealed. Tim Republicans are
equally determined to prevent repeal. If

When the liill to uppropialc money to
pay arrears of pensions waa up for discus
sion in the senate on Thursday and Friday,
two amendments of great importance were
proposed. The first was a scheme to reor
ganize the pension office and change tho
form of proceedings in securing pensions,
and would have had tho effect to prevent
any ono except persons already rich, from
receiving any benefits from the pension
laws. It was a device of Radicals, who
were too stingy to pay pensions, yet too
cowardly to refuse openly to do so. Gen.
A. N. Rice, of Ohio, chairman of the house
committee on pensions, and Senator I). W.
Voorhces, of the senate committee on pen
sions, and Senator Thurman exposed the
defects of the measure and secured its de
feat. Eight Radical senators voted
against it, however, including Blaine, Conk
ling, Hamlin, Oglesby and Spencer. Thus
the soldiers of the North are indebted in a
great manner to the Democrats for the pen
sions they will hereafter enjoy. The other
amendment was to give a pension of eight
dollars per month tosoldiois of the Mexican
war. This was successful in the senate, but
has not yet been finally disposed of. The
fact that this amendmant would give a pen
sion to Jefferson Davis excited the wrath of
Republican senators. Hoar of Massachu
setts made an amendment that no pension
should be paid to the hot head of the Con
federacy. Senators Lamar and Thurman
did not diaeuss the question of pensioning
Davis, but the latter made an excellent
speech, counseling the forgetfulness of the
The present congress, while it has been
liberal in its dealings with thisDistrict, has
been careful not to promote any of the nu
merous jobs that have been urged by the
District people or by others having interests
here. Indeed, though more money has
been appropriated, or is embraced in the
appropriation bills now pending, than is at
all necessary, nearly all of it is for legiti
mate urposes. If the 45th congress has
been extravagant it has not been corrupt.
