A Washington dispatch reads asfollows
"Colonel John S. Mosby, Consul at Hong
Kong, writes his brother-in-law that he is
disposed to resign, to see if he cannot arouse
the state department to a comprehension of
the rottennesa ot the George F. Seward ring
in China. He writes to Secretary Evarts
that $40,000 consular fees at that port
have been wrongfully retained by his pre-1
decessors, and believes that $200,000 has
been stolen from the emigration fund."
As the guerrilla Colonel is a good Repub
lican, our Republican friends must accept
The New York Herald is not friendly
to the Democracy but it can, at odd times,
do the party justice, of which fact we have
proof in the following paragraph The
truth is that the Democrats began, as soon
as they obtained control of the house, a
rigid, and as the Republicans perpetually
complained, a too rigid, system of economy,
which they have since then pushed' unceas
ingly, and oftcnest arjainst the vigorous
criticisms of their opponents; and one ol the
best proofs of their zeal in this direction
has been the notable disappcarancd of the
lobby from the capitol since the Democrats
took charge of the appropriations. Tllcy
have committed many blunders, but extrav
agance with other people's money is not one
We are pleased to observe that in a few
things, at least, the Chicago Tribune is hon
est and laithful. It refuses to join in the
foolish clamor against the removal of the
duty from quinine, and very stubbornly re
fuses to agree with its Republican cotempo
raries that the opening of our markets to
tho competition of the world in the purchase
and sale of that article, has had the effect
) of increasing the price. Tho matter stands
precisely as the Tribune states it. Congress
repeals the non-revenue producing tax on
the anti-fever drug, wherpupon Powers and
; "Weirhtman, who have secured a monopoly
of its manufacture in this country, and
t have amassed vast fortunes of many mil
, lions ot dollars on their "protected" sales,
fly into a passion, or pretend to, wiien the
duty is taken off and threaten to cloac their
works and manufacture no more sulphate
1 of quinine.
Oa this announcement, foreign manufac

Ing, and that P. & W. would cany them
into t'fect, advanced their own prices, be

Insufficient supply of the article for a time,
and until new works could be established
in America to take the place of P. fc W.'s.
This advance of the sulphate of quinine by
European dealers was promptly iouowcu y
a rise in price by Powers & Welghtmim,
and who aro coins r!cht along manufactur-
o - w w

suddenly quitting the business, wmcu it
erate on the Eurqpean market to . advance
prices there; and, then,-taking advantage of
their own misconduct, they levy a heavier
blood-tan on fever-patients than before tho
wicked duty was removed. This is the
true explanation of the present rise. But
if the public look into the columns of sub
sidized prohibitory tariff organs they win
not find even a glimmer of the facts,
nothimi but a verbose mess of 6lush that
submerges the truth out'of sight.
DEACON GRINDER'S EXPERIMENT.
BY E. B. W.
"I hone the children haven't been any
trouble to you, Miss Peck?" said Deacon
Grinder, as his one-horse chaise drew up on
the green in front of Miss Pilena Peck's

"Trouble, indeed 1 Why, deacon, how you

here. I should like to keep them a week."
The deacon smiled and shook his head.
"That would be a little too much," said
he. Come, children, jump into the wag

The Widow Clarp came hurrying out as
the chaise rattled by, with 3 tin pail in her
"Dear me, Deacon Grinder," she said,
"you are always in a hurry. Do stop a
minute, can't you? Here's a pail of our
new honey m the comb. I know the dar

"Tut, tut, Mrs. Clappr'said the deacon,
his face spinning all over with satisfaction.
"Handsome is that handsome does. That's
'And nobody can't do handsomer than
my little Joe," said Mrs. Clapp. "Anc:
there's Tommy grown as handsome as you

The deacon had hardly guided his old
horse around the comer of the villase creen
when Mrs. Barbara Bowyer tripped out of
the mniinery store.
"I do hope you'll excuse me, Deacon
Grinder," said she, with all the pretty con
fusion which naturally belongs to a maiden
of tix-and-thirty summers, "but I was so
edified with your be-yu-tiful remarks in
prayer-meeting Monday night, that I could
not help setting myself to work to think

handkerchief I've embrodiered for Josie.

for Dorothy. O, don't thank me, pray. It

work, by the old red farm-house window.

they drove by.
"Pa," said Josie, who was a shrewd.
sallow-faced child of eleven, "don't Miss
Poole love us as well as Miss Peck and
Mrs. Clapp and Miss Barbara Bowver?"
'1 hope so, my child," said the benign
deacon. "Why do you ask the question?"
liecause 6he never gives us any thing,"
"She is poor, child-sbc is poor," said tho
deacon. "But I am sure you all have her

hearthstone that evening,' his sister, Miss
Mahala Ann Grinder, expressed herself on
the subject with gteat plainness and per
"If you've really make up your mind to
marry again," she said
"I think it would add to my
domestic facility," said the deacon
"In that case." said aiiss Mahala Ann,

and not allow yourself to be iinpcscd upon
by a pack of selfish widows and scheming
old maids." 0

"No, I ain't," said Mahala Ann. "If
you wasn't well to do in the world, and
hadn't a nice home and farm and money
at interest, they wouldn't none of them look
twice at you."
"D.i you think so?" said the deacon, and
he pondered the question long and earnest
ly in his own mind. "Upon the whole,"
said he, bringiog down his palm upon tho
table, "I ain't sorry that those investments
of mine in the Mariposa Silver Mining
Company havo been a failure."
"What do you mean?" said Miss Mahala
Ann, curiously eyeing him over the top ot
