E. A. Burnett,
'Democracy la a sentiment not to Te appalled,
cormptvd or compromised. It know no bueneie,
cowera to ao danger, jpprcMet no weakness. Fear
leu. generous nd hnrnunc. It rebukes the arrogant,
cherunce honor, and sympathises with the humble.
It aka nothing but what it concedes; it concedes
nothing but what it demands. Destructive only of
despotism, it is the sole conservative of liberty, la
bor and property. It is the sentiment of freedom,
of equal obligations. It is the law of nature per
vading the law of the land. The stnpid, the scl
Bah, the base in spirit may denounce It as a vulgar
thing; but is the history of our race the Demo
cratic principle has developed and Illustrated the
bijibett mural and Intellectual attributes of our
nature. Yes, this is a noble, nia-minimon, a sub
lime sentiment, which expands our affections, en
larges the circle of onr sympathies and elevates the
oul of man until, claiming an equality with the
best, he rejects as ju wort by of his dignity any po
litical immunities over the humblest of his fellows.
Yes.lt ia an ennobling principle; and may that
spirit which animated onr fathers In the Rcvolutiou-
. ary contest for it establishment continue to ani
mate us, their sons, In the impending struggle for
Us preservation." WILLIAM ALLEN.
From August 1st, 1851), to January ljf,
1879, 3,772,707 aliens lauded in New York.
Of this largo Dumber of immigrants Illinois
received more than any other State, and
still she isn't happy.
The New York Times is of the opinion
thut the man who thinks that Mr. Gyrus
W. Field i trying to injure Mr. Samuel J.
Tildeu's chances for the Democratic nomi
nation for the presidency, by charging him
with crookedness in connection with elevat
ed railway btock, so that his brother, justice
Field, may have a chance for the nomina
tion, is 'Ihopelessly depraved.'' But tln
there is a suspicion that in making this
statement the Times seeks to be ironical.
Tub merchants of New York say that
tlio liisinebs season just now opening hits,
every promise of being the mobt prosperous
one for years. Money is plenty and country
merchants aro buying freely. With a
stupendous public work in progress say
the prosecution ot Eads jetty plan in the
improvement of the lower Mississippi, and
Scott's plan for a Southern Pacitic railroad
then working men would be furnished
remunerative employment, and th country
then would be prosperous indeed.
Tub editor of the Fope County Demo
crat, heading a column with a crowing
rooster, indulge in sundry exclamatory
pantgraphs, jubilating over the redemption
of Pope county trom a State of bankruptcy.
The Democrat editor has made a noble atid
successful fight against the vampires of
Gdconda, who have been fattening for
years on the county's financial troubles;
and cow that he has his heel upou tliSir
throals, and sees the merchants of the
luuuty eager to take the tew orders at par,
we can well excuso what his adversaries are
pleased to term his "insufferable vanity,"
in proclaiming the redemption of the
county's credit through the Democrat's in
flutnee. He gives Tom Hullidity credit for
luriii.umg the w-ns with which he
fought, nn,l jmty lirilU., ,lhlM!lf on tw
kill with which hi. uwd them. "Hurrah
for Turn HallSdftyi- he exclaim. H, , h'd

mi, trom umlcnhervlemlm ring rule."
The tiniinuiiti nnnereiul replies to
the lnniu trrgumeut of the Gruntites after
this fusion ; "h is siipreui folly i0 talk
of what a mint of nerve might have dune m
Mr. Tltden'a pi nee in '70. '.Vwle who op.
pows him now U-causo he did not 'assert Ids'
rights' at that time, either do not realize
what a calamity civil war is, ordo not tneao
what they say. Suppogothat JlrTIayc
was not lawfully Elected, and that Mr.
Tildt n was, would tho country bo in the
prosperous and happy condition it is if Mr.
Tildon had asserted his rights by force of
arms," and ljud been placed In the Executive
chair after the streets had run red with blood ?
His 'right' would have been 'asserted,' but
would tho Union bo any more firmly es
tablished than it is? The people who want
what they call a 'nervy mat' for their nom
inco should ask themselves if four years un
der a President whoso title to tho office is a
matter of doubt, is not preferable to a
bloody struggle tor the office, and the bitter
feelings that would result from its possession
by force? Nothing but a peaceful adjust
ment of our political differences and quiet
acquiescence should bo contemplated for a
moment by any citizen.' And so say we.
FORCING THE ISSUE.
The force of hands working in the Indi
anapolis rolling mill arrived at the conclu
sion, the other day, that they would decide
for the proprietors what wages should be
paid to the men, and that, if the proprie'
tors withheld their assent, they, the hands,
would quit work, and see to it that no other
force of workmen tilled the vacant places.
T!ie proprietors deciding that they "couldn't
stand the raise," the hands struck. In due
time a few new men were employed and
put to work, ad now it is all their lives
are worth to be caught, singly, away from
the shop. Many of them have been beaten
in the most merciless manner the latest
outrage of the kind being the assault made
upon John Wishmeyer, last Sunday. Wish
meyer was waylaid by two of the strikers,
caught and pounded until he was past rec
ognition, and until he was supposed to be
dead. His face was beaten until it was
simply a puffed and bloody pulp, fcis head
was horribly cut and mangled, and his
body kicked uutil it was bruised all over,
several of his rib being kicked loc.se from
the sternum. Of course the man will die,
and as murder in Indianapolis is not classa
ble among the offences against society, the
murderers will go unpunished.
If there were-uo offeuce behind the mere
act of beating the life out of Wishmeyer, the
public might leave the matter to the ad
justment of the people directly concerned;
but when it is remembered that the life of
Wishmeyer was sought because he accepted
a compensation for his labor that his as
sailants wero unwilling to ttcccpt for theirs,
the affair becomes a matter in which the
wnoio luuustml public is deeply con
cerned. The time never will come
when men who have work to let will
surrender the right to say what they will
pay for the performance of that work. Tho
public always has conceded and always will
concede to manufacturers, contractors and
others the right to fix tho amount they are
willing to pay their employes. Should they
go beyond that right, and say to the work-
ingmen, "we'll pay you a certain sum per
day or wek, ami if you refuse to accept it,
we'll fall upon you with bludgeons and bat
ter your brains out," the public would
stand appalled at the monsters, aud they
would soon go down under the weight of an
indignant public wntiment!
Men always have been and always will
be permitted to fix the price of the labor
they li-vve to sell, and it is equally
certain that the purchasers of
labor will be left equally free to buy or not
buy, as they may feel inclined. Such a
principle underlies our whole industrial
system, and to disregard the principle is to
strike a fatal blow at the system itself.

The return of Mr. Welsh, late minister
to England, and his presence in this city
revive the story, told sometime since, that
General Grant's name hud been mentioned
at a cabinet meeting as Mr. Welch's suc

affirm that the fact was stated to them by
a member of tho cabinet. Probably tho

Young Mr. Sparks entered the law office
of Judge Smith with rather a sorrowful cast
of countenance. Drawing up a chair, he
"Does the law allow damages lor injury
to a man's feeling, Judge?"
"Not often; sometimes."
"Non when you're cut up,mortificd, trod
den on, insulted, mad"
"I can tell better when I know the facts."
''Well, I'll state my case. You know,
Judge, that church fair that was held in the
hall last night? I went there, and John
Wormerly introduced mo to a most awfully
pretty girl, Miss Blazer. I never mot her
before. She was just splendid, you know.
Uncommon agreeable, and I treated her to
oysters and ice cream, aud Iwught her a
pin-cushion, and a lamp-mat, and a 'whole
lot of flddle-taJdlc. Spent about four dol
lars, you know, and she seemed so mighty
pleasant that I thought I'd made a hit; dead
in love with her, you understand."
"Quick work, wasn't it?"
"Yes, but she was so very handsome and
so bewilderiugly affable. And so, about
ten o'clock, I asked her if I mil.t see her
home. She said I might. I didn't know
where she lived and I didn't care. So we
started, and struck out for the Woodbury
nxe, and 1 asked her if she was a neigh
bor to the Smileys, and slie said she wasn't.
Then we walked on, and on, until we gtt
clear into the country, and I inquired if her
tathcr was in the tarmmg business, and she
said no. So we kept ffoimr, and prett v soon
it began to rain, and as I had no umbrella,
I asked her to let me throw my coat around
her, and she consented, and I walked by
her side in my shirt sleeves."
"Did she seem grateluU"
"Well, not much. But when we'd gone
about half :t mile farther, she said she
thought she saw a highway robber or some
thing a few yards ahead dark as pitch,
you know and wouldn't I sro in advance
and see what it was. So I walked boldly
on, and the first thing I knew, I ran against
one of the side-posts of the toll-gate anil
skinned my nose. Look at it ! Made it
bleed, too. Then sho said she knew where
she was now, anil wc could go rigltl along.
I asked her if she lived near the toll-gate,
and she said 'not so very.' However, I
knew I made an impression on that girl,
and I didn't care much fur distance. So we
walked along, until we p:issed Simpson's
school house and came to Huckleberry
creek. She said it just flashed across her
then that the bridge was down, and she
couldn't imagine how she was to jret
"CouMn'tswim, could she:"
"Not deep enough, you know. So I
hemmed and hawed awhile, and then I told
her that I didn't like to make the offer, but
I'd wade and carry her, if she'd lot tni."
"Refused, of course, I suppose:"
"She accepteil on the sjiot, and I got her
across safely, although I was wet up to my
knees. So then we kept going along, au'l
along, uutil I got kind of uneasy, when all
of a sudden she said she was afraid she had
missed the road, it was so dark, and wouldn't
I go to that house close by and ask them if

Lane. I went, but before I could get to
the door-bell, a dog came booming at me,
and I ran for the gate. Put your hand
right there, on my leg. Feel that? That's
the bandage over that dog bite. A quarter
of a pound of ilesh gone, at tho very least."
'Did she sympathize with yi?"
''Well, not as much as I expected. And
then we walked, and walked, until I bgan
to think she must live somewhere on the
Pacific coast, when presently she said:
'There's our house! I see a light''"
"That was one satisfaction, anyhow, for I
knew she would ask me in, and have me
dried, and maybe her mother might ask nv
to stay all night, so that I'd have a chance
to get acquainted with the family, and 1 1
see her in the morning.''
"Well, we went up, and when I rang the
bell, a young fellow came to tho doorjand
he says :
'Why, Emily, is it you: We thought
you intended to stay at Vurguson's, or I'd
have come for you.' "
"Then she introduced me, and said tl.i-i
was the gentleman she was engaged to,
Engaged to, mind you! And he thanked
me for bringing her home. I, you under
stand, standing on the front .steps till this
time. And the gentleman she was engage I
to handed me my coat, and said to Emily :
'No use of asking Mr. Spaiks in at this
time of night, ot course:' "
"And Einiiy said :
'He'll want to get home as quick as In:
can, I am sure.' "
"And like an old fool I said:
'Of course.' "
"And so I quit, and they wtfft in ami
shut the door. It was just tour miles home.
