Wntt.E St'cretan- Sherman is searching
the Treasury department for clerks of
Democratic inclinations, whom he proposes
to decapitate as fast as found, the Secretary
of War is giving high positions ot trust and
responsibility to some of the most pro
nounced rebels that were devclopud during
ihn wnr. This or that, is a matter of
principle, and tho "great old Republican
party" being a party of principle must oust
Democrats or elevate traitors.
Senator Bcrnside stands out conspicu
ously from his Republican brethren as op-
posed to military interference at the polls.
' All the Republican Senators but ho voted
for bayonets at tho polls, and ho has thus
made a most patriotic record. Even the
Woonsockct Patriot, a Republican journal
of his State, says: "General Burnside has
taken counsel of his courage, and has both
voted and declared his hostility against
bayonet rule at the ballot box. This deter
mination has added more to his Senatorial
reputation than all his other labors in Con-
ly understands the sentiment of the army; a
statesman by nature, he know s that military
interference at political elections is death
to free institutions."
William E. Cuaxdler, who is more no
torious than reputable, happens to know
that neither Grant, Sherman nor Blaine
stands any earthly show for the Republican
Presidential nomination. "Zach Chandler
or E. B. Washburn is tho man who will
step in and take the prize," Mr. Chandler
thinks, while the other aspirants, discom
fit ted and demoralized, will bo nowhere,
. and will take nothing. It is a matter oi
inditferenco to tho Democracy, whe takes
the prize of a Republican Presidential
nomination. Tho Presidential prizo itself
is at tho top of a greased polo that will be
successfully scaled by David Davis, Gov.
Palmer, Gen. Hancock or some other Dem
ocrat to bo named by the Democracy.
v The absorption of Holland by Prussia
is talked of as one ot tho future probabili
' tics. The Louisville Courier-Journal says
that since tho Prince of Orango died at
, Paris there have been many predictions
that Bismarck, in the event of a lapse in
tho succession to the tlirouc of Holland,
will quietly annex Holland, as, according
to tho German view, if tho present heir,
Alt-zander, dies, and tho King has uo chil-
tlrcn by his recent marriago with tho
rrincess of Woldeek, tho succession
- t would pass to tho tx-Duko ot Nassau's
l I family, now Prussian subjects. It appears,
however, that the law of Holland provides
that tho Dutch can choose their own sov
ll reign if the reigning dynasty becomes
c'. extinct, so that unless Germany resorts
t. to forcible annexation they arc tolerably
secure in the pUsession ot their famous
Pol. G. Kitcues, whoso name is not

lis wss'. licuten for Congress in tho last
campaign by a comparatively small major
ity, but that only itiraulaul him the more,
and ever since last fall ho lins been popping
up mysteriously hero and there all over tho
fourth district. He has been so patiently
and unremittingly at ork since last elec
tion-day that if he hasn't set up a good
many new, strong pegs 'twill bo a wonder.
On tho Fourth of July ho made a speech in
Benton, Scott county, and a correspondent
tells tho Commerce Dispatch that for over
an houT tho colonel held his audience spell
bound. "Wo do not knew whether the col
onel's oration was about tho American
eaulo or more greenbacks, but wo suspect it
was about both. Ho would hardly bo apt
to loso so good an opportunity to set up a
peg in Scott county.
What's thfl world C0min2 tOI At a
II w ---- W
meeting of tho St. Louis striking coopers,
held Tuesday evening, it was reported that
Henry Schaeffer, who bad been making
tight barrels, was, at that very moment of
time, making slack barrels for Charley
Wonderling. A committee was thereupon
appointed to look into tho matter. Wo
should say so! What's tho matter with
Henry Schaeffer? What excuse can ho ren
der for making two kinds of barrels? Of
course ho owns his own shop and tools, and'
is supposed to bo a free man; but if he
supposes ho can leave tight work and go on
to slack work, as tho demands may neces
sitate, ho ought to bo taught his mistake.
If ho is un tvillinar to stick to ono kind of
work, 'though ho may starve at it, ho
should not be allowed to work at all. Tho
world is coming to a pretty pass, when a
boss cooper can leave tight work tor slack!
The committee cannot look into the matter
a moment too soon !
There is a good deal more truth thau
poetry in the following paragraph from the
New York Sun: "In Southern States,
where the Republicans cast a light vote,
the leaders of the party are the office hold
ers. ' The postmasters, the revenue officers
and the port collectors manipulate the pri
maries and the county and State conven
tions. Onco in four years they send them
selves as delegates to the national conven
tion and get a finger in the president-mak
ing there, aud it is possible for a tew of
them to hold the balance of power and
name tho candidate. To use a homely
phrase, these men know on which side
their bread is buttered. If they have been
appointed to office by John Sherman, it
isn't to bo supposed that they will vote in
convention for Blaino or Conkling, at least
not until the fight for Sherman has been
given up. John Sherman, appreciating
this fact, has been quietly reorganizing the
civil service in the Southern States. The
Times recently printed an article showing
where postmasters who are for Grant have
been removed, and postmasters who are
for Sherman have been put in their places.
In addition to this conies tho information
that Sherman is about to reorganize

When those pesky brigadiers again as
semble in tho Senate the manner in which
they will succumb and "knuckle down" to
tho mere winks of tho shoulder-hitting Mi
chigander, Zach Chandler, will satisfy the
most vengeful Republican carpet-knight in
the whole North. Unwitringly, and with no
desire to scare anybody, old Zach has let it
out that he has had six mouth's training
and strikes a blow of iron. The Boston
Traveler, to whoso Washington correspond
ent Chandler disclosed his secret, says that
it is altogether likely that Zach put himself
under the charge of professional trainers di
rectly after Col. Vorhees split that pitcher
of milk on his head. But that's immate
rial. Here is what ho said to tho Travel
ler's correspondent: "Very many years
ago nearly twenty, at least I determined
to take a course of training in bo.ing,and I
employed ono of tho best trainers in tho
country, tho man who trained Heenan for
his famous prizo fight before tho war. I
was under this man's charge for at least six
mouths, and in that time became quite an
adopt in usiug my fists. I got up a first
class muscle, and have preserved it to this
day. No person in tho Senate suspects that
I am a boxer, or that I can strike a blow of
iron, but, if I am ever assailed, my assail
ant will discover that I can defend myself
without resorting to weapons." And still
Democratic Senators crossed him in debate
and even laughed at his abuso of tho Dem
ocratic party 1 Ono fairly squirms to think
Cait. Eads has clearly dcmonstrateil
that tho proposed improvement of tho
lower Mississippi can bo effected more
speedily, with more permanent results and
at less cost, by tho adoption of tho jetty
system than in any other manner. But tho
Kiver Commission is dominated by gov
ernment enifluiiers, and although at least
two ot them have strong faith in tho jetty
system, they didn't originate it, and to
"lmprovo tho Mississippi, at contemplated,
without inseparably connecting their
names with tho work, la not to bo thought
of. An able Kentucky contempory guys:
"At tho expiration or four years Capt. Eads
hits completed the Jetties, obtaining a max
imum depth of thirty feet in tb. channel,
and thus removing every obstaclo in tho
passage of tho largest vessel to New Or
leans. He has had a host of enemies, who
have sought to ruin him, but their mouths
are shut now. Tho perfect success of tho
jetties at South Pass, suggests that the
same principle may bo applied with Uko
favorable results to tho whole Mississippi
river, from Cairo to tho Gulf. Capt. Eads
has demonstrated that a deep and perman
ent channel can bo produced by reducing
the width of tho excessively wide places in
the river, and procuring a uniform current.
Ho has wiped out tho formidable bar at
South Pass in this way. Applied to tho
whole lower Mississippi river, tho jetty
system will not only give a deep channel of
twenty feet from Cairo down, but will stop
tho caving ot the banks and keep tho flood
lino well within tho river banks. This
system of river improvement will be con
sidered by tho Mississippi River Improve
Forney's Washington Chronicle, whoso
editor feels about as much interest in tho
Mississippi river as the people of Cairo do
in the Suez canal, says that "Eads is draw
ing millions from tho public treasury for
an experiment, the best of men in tho Mis
sissippi valley arc ready to denounco as a
swindle and a fraud, while Capt. Cowdon
asks lor no money to put his Barataria ca
nakhrough, nor does he ask tho govern
ment to pay him a dollar for his plan for
improving tho Mississippi river, until the
government is satisfied by his experiment
that it will work." Now, in view of the
facts as they nctually exist, the Chronicle
paragraph is simply damnable it is pal
pably and diametrically the reverse of the
truth. Capt. Eads expended his own money
and did not ask or receive from the govern
ment a single dime until after he had per
formed work worth ten times the amount
ho applied for. Ho took all the risks,
and asked the government to pay
him nothing until satisfied that the charac
ter, progress and value of his work entitled
him to payment. Had Eads failed, he
would have lost his own money; the gov
ernment would not have suffered to the ex
tent of one dollar. Captain Cowdon, on
the other hand, doesn't propose to risk a
simile dollar of his own money. If the
government will place 800,000, or some
other enormous sum, subject to his disposal,
why then he'll try tho efficacy of his out
let plan. Should failure ensue, the govern
ment money is gone, and Cowdon is not
out a nickle. Cowdon wants the govern
'ment to give him an enormous sum of
money with which to try an experiment,
and offers no idemnity whatever. Eads
used his own money, and asked the gov
ernment to pay him nothing until satisfied
that it had. in his work, a full equivaW
Lowuon wouut assume no risks. u..ja ns.
sumed all the risks. Cowdon wanted
money in hand before he commenced his
work. Eads wanted no money until after
the work had been performed. And yet.
according to John W. Forney Cowdon has
been snubbed, even outraged, while Eads
has been tho favored of all men ! And, ns
to those prominent citizens who are ready
to stigmatize the jetties a swindle nnd a
failure, will tho Chronicle please name
them? If we have such men, tho public
wants to know them.
