Tub New York Herald's correspondent
traveling with the Grant junketers, treats
Grant's excesses with great tenderness.
Speaking of the complimentary dinner at
Canton, he says, that before tho meal was
two-thirds finished the General "was past
eating'' and was taken for a walk in the
The editor of tho Springfield Journal
says: "Wo aro not a civil engineer, but
we laugh at Capt. Eads' idea that a 1.200
ton ocean vessel can bo drawn ly
locomolives across tho isthmus of
Danen." Before laughing much, the
Springfield editor should remember that
within the' time of men yet living, hun
dre-.ls of thousands of persons "laughed
and pooh ! poobed !" at the idea of Robert
Fulton navigating the Hudson, with boil
ing wfter a motor." There was a "haw!
haw!" trom the Journal type of men when
Morse avowed bis purpose to sit in his office
in New York and talk over an iron wire
with another party in Washington. Men of
very respectable brain, even the renowned
telegrapher, Tal P. Shaffucr, laughed
broadly when Field declared the ocean
telegraph a feasible project. With the
light ol the past three-quarters of a cen
tury to guide us, cautious men are not as
much given to derisive laughter as they
And why, pray, may not a 1,200 ton ship,
or a 12,000 ton ship, for that matter, be
drawn over the isthmus on a railroad track
specially prepared for such uses? With ap
pliances that cost less than 50,000, vessels
weighing 2,000 tons, are now drawn out of
our rivers and harbors, up an incline of at
least 00 degrees, a hundred feet or mere
away Irom the water, in less than a half
day. If this may bo done, as the result of
an expenditure of $30,000, why may not
like Vessels, or much heavier ones, bo drawn
farther and faster, by means ol appliances
that cost $50,000,000? It is only this, and
nothing more, that Captain Eads proposes
to accomplish, and the editor of the
Springfield Journal "laughs!" Well,
laugh! We'll sec, ctc long,' who laughs
last, and best.
TnE corouer'9 jury in the Hull murder
case compliments tho New York police ou
the score of their diligence and sagacity in
fcrrettiDg out Mrs. Hull's murderer. If
the jury intended to be cuttingly Barcustic,
it certainly succeeded. If it gavo an
honebt expression of its convictions in
that regard, tho country will hold it tlio
utupidist jury that ever convened anywhere.
Inrtcad of compliments, tho New York
police earned derision ( instead of exhibit
ing sagacity, it showed itself utterly in
capable of grappling with the most com-'
mon-place obstacles. From the moment
the llull murder was made known until
tho murderer was in hand, the whole force
pursued the wrong scent j formed absurd
theories, and directed suspicion upon the
feeble old husband, who was not only ut
terly incapable; of the commission of a
crime that required such physical effort,
' but who had controlling motives for pro
longing his wife's existence. Constantly
on the wrong track; governed by absurd
theories, the New York polic-3 would
never have discovered the real
' murderer j but would havo capped the cli
, mux of ir stupidity by hanging the tot-
tertoff decrepid old Hull. While they wcro
graTcly "putting this and that together1' to
put plausible face upon the impossible, a
Boston newspaper reporter spots tlio raur
deror ia tho streets of Boston; brings about
his arrest, and turns him over to the tlazod
.and nstouished thick-skulls who were
hounding the steps of tho feeble- old doc
tor. And this is the beginning nud ending
of that detective shrewdness on tho part of
tho New York police, that won from the
coroner's jury, a fulsome compliment. Tho
only capacity exhibited in this affair, by
either the police or the coroner, were an
ability and proneness to do that which
should have been left undone, and to neg
lect that which should Iiavo been performed
promptly. For bungling work, for inex
cusable folly, short-sightedness and stupid
ity, the police work of tho Hull case stands
without a parrallel.
Republican leaders are afraid that, un
less an army of characterless and irrespon
sible deputy U. S. Marshals interfere to
prevent it, the people will assert themselves
and tho Republican party go down. To
prevent such a catastrophe to the handlers
and tho rings of the party, 'an effort is
UiwlwuUu,uu, , .v.s
bIw mail UP BO'crnmcnt ployes and
others, to pay a tew thousand deputy .Mar
shals to operate in New York, Tcnusylva
aia and perhaps Ohio, during the fall elec
tions. Free and fair elections an untram
melled, honest expression at the ballot box,
means the condemnation and overthrow of
the Republican party. The Democratic
majority in congress refused to appropriate
money to pay a lot of crop-haired bruisers
and cx-convicts for'thc work of fraud, vio
lence and intimidation essential to Repub
lican success, and the Republican leaders
and rings, are driven to the necessity,
therefore, of going down into their own
pockets. The only alternative, they know,
is defeat, sure and inevitable.
LINEGAR AT JOXESBORO.
WHAT WE AIIE AND WHAT WE CAME FKOM
lion. D. T. Linegar, ot Cairo, at Jones-
boro on the 4th icstac.t,spoke,substautly, as
Ladies and gentlemen, it affords me a
great deal of pleasure to meet so many of
the citizens of Union county here for tho
purpose ol celebrating the 103rd annivers
ary of American independence. You have
heard the declaration read in your presence
and it is not my purpose to go into the his
tory of that revolutionary period nor the rec
ord of the scenes which proceeded the dec
laration of independence in 1770. The
history of that revolution is commonly
known among our people, taught in our
schools, and is familiar to us from infancy.
The declaration pronounced the great fun
damental doctrines that all men are created
equal end endowed by their Creator with
certain inulicnal.de rights life and liberty.
Prior to our revolutior, the principle was
impressed upon the people that they were
tho subjects of kings who ruled by right
divine, and that the voice of the king was
the voice of God. But this day the Ameri
can people meet together to commemorate
the institution of a different order of things,
the recognition by the fathers of our repub
lic of the f;ict that the voice of the people,
as expressed at the tree ballot-box is
the voice of God. At that tune there were
but thirteen colonies, the united population
ot which was numerically less than that ot
the larger states at this day. The state of
New York posesses now more than five
times the wealth of the entire thirteen colo
nies. Is it not well, then, my countrymen,
that we should study the system of govern
ment which has drawn unto the country
the prosperity that we to-day witness from
one end ot the land to another. The na
tonal government was composed ot dele
gates from the thirteen different colonies.
These delegates, the fathers of the republic,
thought it not sufficient merely to achieve
their own freedom, but they gathered them
selves together to organize' a constitution
and perpetuate liberty. Our fathers looked
back to the old world, and reviewed
the history of the people there.
Let us see for what purpose our govern
ment was organized. These colonies could
withttaud but a short tune the forces which
might attack them H'm they iceu separa
ted; so they combined for the protection
and welfare of the jneople. The govern
ment of the United States was organized
purpose of collecting dues,
of collecting dues, nnd
niakinu war or
pence, ino rights ol the
States are maintained. "We huve a general
government, the duties of which are well
defined by a written constitution. They
are there for the pnrpoe of fulfilling the
plans of the people, for binding the States
together in one body for the protection of
all, for ma'iing treaties with loreign powers,
and for making a national standard of col
ors. And the States take care of the indi
vidual rights of the people, for protecting
person aud property. Tho citizen of each of
tho several States enjoys laws peculiarly
adapted to the diversity of climate and
circumstances which exist in our vast
territory. No state, may declare war, but
each state may organize and maintain a
militia for the preservation of peace within
her borders. The title by which we hold
cur farms and lands comes to us not from
the uetieral government, but from tke
state ot Illinois; so it is with all. VYhv?
Uecause what would be to the advantage
ol olio locality would not uo to the auvan
tiiL'0 of another and this internal
state legithtion is not in any w-ay contrary
to tho written constitution ol the nation.
Our fathers conceived the great idea of
making the rulers dependant upon and
subservient to the people and it was the de
termination of our lathers that they should
continue so. Such was the wisdom of their
proceeding that, at the celebration of the
nation's first centennial, the population had
increased to tony millions. In provid
ing lor the luturo ot tlie common
wealth, the founders of the republic re
dued the system ot government to a phi
losojdiicnl and mathematical certainty, Our
government has grown in strength and
prosperity. Ye have a school system which
has been imitated by the older countries of
Europe, a system by means of which our

children i;re trained and educated to cast
on intelligent vote when they grow up; for
we believe a knowledge ot reading and
writin" necessary to tit a man for perform
in" the dutk'S ot an American citizen. Wo
have a railroad system which numbers
more miles than that of any other railroad
system in the world. These iron roads
which bind our soil ore worth more
to us as fortifications than tho strong
est places in Europe, and they servo to dis
tribute the multifarious products of our
States. Tho luscious fruits of our tropical
South find their way to tho hardier North.
Altogether, wo have reason to rejoico over
our prosperous condition, and each and
every citizen should devote himself to tho
maintenance ot tho Union bequeathed to us
by our fathers. Dissension, however, did
come. I refer to tho unfortunate time of
1SG1, but whatever of angry feeling the
war generated has in a measure subsided,
and to-day, in many places in the South,
this same day is observed and celebrated
as tho natal day of the
Union from which they strove to
escape. There is no one standing within
the sound of my voice who does not respect
and obey the old flag and the constitution
of the states of America. Continue thus,
and it may safely bo prophesied tha't the
forty millions who peopled our country at
the date of the first centennial will in 197C
havo increased to one hundred millions.
Whoever witnessed the termination ot that
second century will contemplate with joy
the labors of this present and former gen
erations in the preservation of tho old flag.
