General Grant, writing troni Hong
Kong to a friend in Galena, Illinois, says,
us to bis movements when he reaches home :
"I expect to remain on the Pacific coast
for some weeks, an! then go to Galena and
stay until the cold weather. Where we
will Fpcnd'tho winter we have not deter
mined. We may go to Florida or Ha
vana. That's - another settler for the
boom. ' -
Tite latest idea in regard to Ben Butler's
future, according to the Boston Herald ,
has been suggested by some of his follow
ers. It jis to keep him out of the guberna
torial race, uniting the Democrats and
Grecnbackers on Gaston for Governor, and
reserving Butler for senator, in place of
Dawes. We should like very mucli to see
the plan tnod, and shall have no tears to
shed if it prove a success.
The following is some of tho St. Louis
Times-Journal's smartness: "It's an ill
wind thot blows nobody any good. We
never hear that a freight train lias been
wrecked that we don't set the world down
as hu'mg well rid of ono or more (hleviug
tramps. Tlid average freight car seems to
have been invented for the purpose of con
veying the average tramp from one locality
to another. A wrecked freight car invari
ably means a dead tramp. t It's an expen
sive but effective way of getting rid of a
very undesirable class of nuisances."
The city of New York was in a tumult
of excitement, Saturday night, over the
Brown-Weston walking niatch, that termi
nated at 11 o'clock. It is estimated that
the crowds that gathered about the differ
ent newspaper offices, numbered thirty
thousand people. Tho New York Herald's
cablegrams, descriptive of the contest, cost
over two thousand dollars, and nothing,
since the close of the presidential contest
of 1870, equaled tho excitement that pre
vailed from sun-set until midnight. All of
which seems to verify deacon Bedott's snge
olwervation, that we all are "poor, weak,
It is to be regretted that our late Gen
eral Assembly did not submit the question
of granting further state aid to our Normal
schools, to a vote of the people. The re
sult would servo to undeceive the gentlemen
who, salaried by the Normal school boards,
declare that opposition to further mainte
nance of such schools, owes its origin to
"ignorance and prejudice." The indelicacy
of such gentlemen, in obtruding themselves
upon the public as the special champions
and defenders of the Normals, surprises and
diagtuU the real friends, and puts weapons
in the hands of the enemies of the schools
that can be used with telling effect.
TnB Chicago Hotel World, of last week,
devout its entire first page to a large wood
cut ot the Gardner House and surroundings
and au article descriptive of the character
of the establishment under the wise and
Judicious management of our late fellow
cltieen, Mr. Jewett Wilcox. The Gardner
! rapidly becoming the best known, us it
la confessedly the most sensibly managed
hotel, in tliO city of Chicago. Concerning
'the internal management of tho house the
Hotel World ipeaki as follows :
Mr. Jewett Wilcox, since assuming the
management of the Gardner, hug greatly
improved the geoeral service of the house
.and the izorcUe of LU judgment (always
' the best), and his persistant and tireless
energy, baa brought tho trade up to a staud-
ftrd that Under former and less skilful
management seemed almost unattainable.
Ho began by improving tho character of
the table ami service; then ho engaged
Mr. Charles Ruf, ono of the best chefs in
tho country, and -who was formerly em
ployed in like capacity at the Tremont
Houso under Mr. Wilcox's adminstration.
Already the bills of fare that have ema
nated from the Gardner House, since he
took charge, have won deservedly high
praise from the press and public in all
parts of tho country, and it is not saying
too much to say that here the t-picuro is
most at home."
Mb. New-.Motou Keeley is again at the
front and claims to be "rapidly nearing
success that will revolutionize machinery."
He, it is said, 6till retains the confidence
and enthusiastic support of the several "in
telligent and practical capitalists'' who have
invested in the motor company. The
Scientific American is not infallible; but
time Rcems to have vindicated its assertion
that Keeley is a consummate but very persis
tent fraud. What the motor lacks is what
the American declares can never be added,
that is continuity to the power employed.

exhausts itself and cannot be made contin
uous. Everybody will not agree with General
Ewing in the belief he expresses that the
result of the Ohio election in October will
be the first gun of the campaign in 1SS0.
It has not always been so, and Ohio is
by no means, what many consider it, the
pivotal state. The Democrats did and can
elect a president without its electoral vote.
It will be safer to have it, it is true ; but, as
. . . . ....
was shown in 13.0, it was not essential to
a Democratic victory. It is no doubt true
that the decision in Ohio will have a
strong influence on, if it does cot actually
shape, the elections in Illinois, Indiana and
Wisconsin. In fact, the way Ohio goes
will be a fair indication of the sentiment
of the entire Northwest, and thus the elec
tion becomes of national importance.
The Mississippi river improvement con
vention will be held in Quincy, 111., next
month. There will be representatives in the
meeting of every branch of industry, trade,
manufacture and river commerce of the en
tire Mississippi valley, north and south
The convention is to consider and discuss
measures which shall lead to appropriations
to improve navigation, and increase the
trade of the Mississippi. General Singleton,
member of Congress, a resident of Quincy,
who is greatly interested in the objects of
the convention, has also interested himself
to secure the presence at the meeting of as
many members of Congress as can possibly
bo present, and there is no doubt but there
will be a large representation of such mem

A TOTENT ARGUMENT RIDICULED;
13 IT NOT ANSWERED.
Gail Hamilton in her pronunciamcnto
against High schools, as a p:irt of our com
mon school educational system, declares,
and most truly, too, that the best teachers,
the most highly educated and the most
highly paid, are not put in the primary
schools, where all the children would have
the benefit of their superior culture, but
into the High schools, where only from
tnree to nve per cent, ot tlie cuiiurcn come
in contact with them.
And now please observe how tho editor
of the leading educational journal ol the
Northwest, disposes of this most potent and
really unanswerable argument. To the al
legation that the High schools monopolize
the best talent, and thus rob the great mass
of our school children of tlie superior edu
cational facilities, Mr. Winchell, of the
Chicago Educational Weekly replies:
"This is indeed too bad; but the evil is not
peculiar to our schools. The better talent
among our lawyers seeks practice in the
higher courts; the great preachers persist
in remaining in the enlightened metropoli
tan cities, preaching to educated and aristo
cratic congregations, while the heathen in
the backwoods are left to the narrow
minded and uninteresting sinvelers. The
best doctors command calls from the most
wealthy patients, whereas a statute should
compel them to attend the sicklier poor,
and leave to quacks the ailments ot the
pampered rich. O Gail I Gail I
Art thou not losing thy grip? Art thou
not a little off, about these times?"
And having said this much, Dr. Winchell
doubtless threw himself back in his easy
armchair, with the self-consoling thought:
There now; that woman's done for
What an easy thing it was to snuff her
out I'' But common sense people,
governed by the logic of common sense.will
form quite a different conclusion. They
will sec the great lawyers practicing in the
higher courts, it is true; but they will also
see the clients who receive the benefits of
thdr services, footing tho bills. Coming
down to the High schools they will sec tho
great teachers rendering services to the few,
for which thu many must pay. The com
mon sense mun will sco tho groat preachers

rnntrretrations ; hut he will also oe the same
enlightened and aristocratic congregations,
paying the grcat'prcachcrs' sa'aries. Turn
ing his mind to tho High schools, ho will
see tho great teacher devoting his time and
talents to ono tenth of tho pupils, yet com
pelling tho parents of tho other u.'uo- tenths
to pay equally with the parents of the ben
eficiaries. Ho will also see the wealthy
sick people who call in tho best doctors,
pay their own bills; but passing to the
high schools ho will sco tho best teachers
at work for the intellectual advancement of
tho few, while they compel the many to
pay to them their salaries. The High school
is the great lawyer, who prac
ticing in the higher courts in
behalf of great corporations and
rich clients, compels tho "underlings, and
"mudsills" of the community, who employ
the pettifoggers, to help pay his fees. It is
the great preacher who preaches to aristo
cratic congregations, yet compels the hea
thens who listen to the backwood's snivel
ers, to help pay his salary; and finally, it is
the great doctor, practicing among the
wealthy patients, who compels the sicklier
poor men, who are forced to accept the at
tentions of the quack, to help in the pay
ment of his exorbitant charges. Indeed
should "a statute be enacted" to compel
the great doctors of our high schools, to
minister to the mental ailments of the poor,
who are now left to the quacks of the lower
departments. In his effort to be scarcastic,
Dr. Winchell indicated an actual need.
The primary departments, through which
all school children must pass, should com
mand the very be6t talent, and not be left
as Dr. Winchell intimates they should, to
the "quacks" and "narrow-minded, unin
teresting snivelers" among our educators.
And, finally, for the reason urged by
'Gail" because they confine the attention
of our best educators to the few, causing
the neglect of the many, the High schools
should be abolished, and no longer form a
part of our common school educational sys
