"When I see," remarked the reverend
speaker, "how religion has organized itself
in Europe, I don't wonder that there has
been a Voltaire. It Voltaire had only had
a loving heart he would have been a saint.
He was in the right nearer to it, at least,
thaii the Church was in his day. He rep
resented, although imperfectly, the attempt
to deliver men ivoni superstition. I am
not his appologist; I merely think that lie
was on the right side."'
Thb Mt. Vernon News says; The Rail
road Commissioners of this State have-ob-tuiued
returns from twenty-six railway
companies, which show that the "life"' of a
locomotive engine varied on these railways
from eight years to twenty-four, and that
the general average duration was fifteen
and a quarter years. Passenger cars en
dure from eight to twenty years the aver
age being fifteen and three quarter years;
the average life of stock' cars being teu
years, and that of freight cars eleven and a
halt years; and railway bridges, of wood,
nhdure from five to twenty years. As to
the life of rails, the statistics seem to inui
cato tliat those of iron last from three to
t.velve years the mean being seven; while
cteel rails are credited with from nine to
twenty years service and an average of
fourteen years is obtained from the returns.
Hkkry Waud Eeeciiek is, as is well
known, the chaplain of the far-famed
Brooklyn regiment. The influence he is
exerting is well calculated to ronder the
regiment dispicable in the eyes of every
real soldier and rigbt-thinking citizen in
the country. It seems, as an exchange says,
' that as the gallant and prayerful Eeecher
inflames the ardor, so docs he encourage
the virtue of the crack corps which he is
leading to glory, both terrestrial and eclcs
' , tial. The effect of his ministrations upon
the colonel has been such that lie has de
manded the resignation of a lieutenant win

of a character which is objectionable to
rnauy of our best members, and its influences
cannot bo otherwise than detrimental to
'i regimental interests." The lieutenant is
amazed, but discipline is discipline, and he
will throw up his regimentals for Lis Sad

prcs-es tho fear that His Highness is milk

Hierarchy would really print a good news
paper in forty or fifty languages, and uso

throughout tho world, it would bo a splen

seems impracticable on account of tho ex

editor of that paper would have to keep

The pending gubernatorial contest
in vino promises to uc tne most ex
citing state election ever held in the country.
The whole influence of tho government will
be thrown ia favor of the Republican cand
idates, because Ohio is the home oi the
president and of the secretary of the treas
ury, and a defeat would be tantamount to a
Tebuke of the policies of those depart
ments of the government. The moral and
pecuniary help of New England and of tho
national bank interest will be thrown
against the Democratic party because of
its alleged "financial heresies." -Millions
of dollars in money, levied lrom federal
office-holders and contractors, contributed
by bankers, bondholders and whisky-ring-
sters will be used against the Democratic
party, and the Chandlers, Carpenters and
Blainc9 will talk against the party, because
the loss of Ohio to the Republicans in 1S79,
means the loss of the country to that party,
surely aud inevitably, in 1SS0. The brains,
the money, the sympathy of the whole Re
publican organization all that fair means
and foul can accomplish, will be brought
to the Did of the Republican' ticket, and
against tho election of Ewing aud Rice.
Against such a power as all these agencies
form, must the Democratic party, without
money, with nn!y the strong consciousness
of the righteousness of its cause, make
battle. In these corrupt and prorogate
times, it jias the appearance of an unequal
contest ; but in the hope and belief that a
majority cf the people of Ohio are incor
ruptible; that there is more virtue than
vice, more honesty than dishonesty among
the masses, the Democratic standard bear
ers ground their conviction of a glorious
The resolution of Senator Euixside de
clares that the people of this country would
rejard a moxement upon the part of
European nations, looking to the construc
tions of a ship caua! across the isthmus of
Panama, as an net of unfriendliness toward
the United States. This resolution was
well received, and has been held as in con
sonance with the so-called "Monroe doc
trine,"' for the maintenance of which the
United States lias always indicated an en
tire willingness to do a little blood-letting.
But the truth of the matter is, the construc
tion of the Tanama canal by foreign capital
ists would sot be regarded r.s an invasion
of tho Monroe doctrine, which is simply an
assertion that "the American continents, by
the free and independent positions they
have assumed and maintained, are hence
forth not to bo considered as subject to
future colonization by any European
power." The canal scheme is not a coloni
zation scheme, in any sense; and would
not, therefore, cause "serious inquietude'"
aeons the American people. On the con
trary, as tho Louisville Courier-Journal
well remarks, "it is much
more likely that the people of this country
who have been subjected to the extortionate
charges of the Central and Union Pacific
monopoly will lcoic with "serious inquiet
ude upon the deieat c-t the inter-oceanic
canal project, for its realization will open a
competition in freights which Huntington
ami Jay Gould can not kill off, for these
gentlemen are not at all likely to get con
trci of u $100,000,000 canal. The great

greatly benefited by the Ishmr.s canal

THE DAILY CAIRO BULLETIN;
"RIGHT AGAINST MIGHT."
The mill owners at Falls' river, having
millions at their command, have been- en
abled to keep their side of the questions at
issue between themselves and their striking
operatives constantly before tho people;
but tho operatives, less favored, have but
rarely been Heard from. For this reason un
undue sympathy has been created in favor
of tho mill owners. As u "counter irritant"
wo give below a liberal extract from tho
address recently published by the striking
spinners, and addressed to the working
men of America :
"Since the year 1873 we have been sub
ject to forty-five per cent, in reduction of
wages. All spare 1ielp has been dispensed
with in this city machinery has been speed
ed to its highest pitch, aud tho work be
come so exhaustive on that account that it
is almost unfit for human beings to follow.
The last reduction of fifteen per cent, in
our wages took place ou April 1, 1878, our
men protested against it, us an effectual
remedy for a glutted market, which we
were then suffering under; but all our re
monstrances were in vain ; the reduction
was enforced, and the price of cloth imne
diately fell in valuo from three and tlfr&
eighth cents per yard to three and outs
eighth ceiit per yard. Thus tho beiefit
did not go into tho coffers of the manufac
turers, but passed away to the consunit'a of
the world at large, and the advice i'nmi
their operatives, which they had previously
disregarded, had to be resorted to, and du
ring the summer months production had to
bo curtailed by the stoppage of the mills
from seven to nine weeks, great poverty and
distress prevailing, and continues to prevail
as a natural result of the reductions and
stoppages we have been subjected to. We
have waited patiently and saw otr trade
revive; the cloth market is almost empty;
goods arc firm and advancing; stocks are
appreciating in value, and the margin of
profits are greater at the present tine than
in 1S75, when the pay of the operatives
was twenty-five per cent, higher thtm now.
The promise that was made to us by our
employers, that with the revival of trade
the reduction would be restored, has been
broken. It was these that nerved us to
bear more patiently tho privations we have
endured. We have petitioned our employ
ers on two different occasions for the alter
ation desired in our wages without success.
We have proposed to meet a deputation
from their body to discuss upon the ques
tion at issue. They decline to meet us.
We proposed to refer the question in dis'
pute to arbitration, and they still refuse to
comply. Their idea is to keep the operatives
working for starvation wages, to pay them
what they like, and do as they like with
them. ' Every time tho Fall River opera
tives have been reduced in wages, the whole
of the surrounding States have followed
suit by reducing their help also. There
fore, we appeal more particularly to oper
ative employed in cotton mills in New
England States, for, apparently, Fall River
is to be the battle-field for the whole of
them. We hope that every workingman
and woman will extend a helpinir hand to
enable us to emerge successfully out of this
fight of 'right against might."'
