Col; Robert Ikgersoll, in a recent let
ter on the currency question, says : "We
are told, however, that the government can
create money. This I deny -'r,'
mum itaiucL- nothing; it raises no wheat,
no corn; it digs no gold, to silver. It is
not a producer, it is a consumer. The
government is a perpetual pauper that Las

stantly passing tha contribution plate.
The man who passes it I admit has a mus
ket with him, but at the same time tho
govtrnm?nt is supported by theso contrib
utions. You can cot live upon the promise
- of your own government any more than you
could live upon the notes of your hired man
any more than you could live upon
bond issued by the occupants of the
county poor house. You can not live upon
that which you have to support."
The New York Tribune has, in a com
parative 6ense, passed from tho knowledgo
of men. Under the management ot the
lamented Greeley the man who was stung
to death by the serpent ho had tenderly
nursed into vigorous lite rit a known of
all men, quoted and admired lor tho hon
esty and great ability of its editorial utter
ances; and was held as filling a place in
the fore-front of American journals. But
now ! No one can contemplate the change
its departed influence, enterprise and
brains, without feeling a touch of heavy.
heartedncss. Without tho capacity to com
prehend the needs of a great paper, or the
energy to supply them, or the money to pay
for them, the Tribuno drags out an exist
ence that scarcely furnishes a reminder of
its former greatness. From the head ol
the column of great American journals it
has dropped down to lie center, with a con
stant tendency to go futther down dem
onstrating the truth of the oft-repcated
declaration, that when Greeley died the
greatness of the Tribuno went out, leaving
to New York only the shadow of the sub
tunee of its greatest paper.

very complete summary of current books.
Quite every observant person has marked
the enervating effect of the trashy, sensa
tional literature thrown into the hands of
children through the medium of such pub
lications as Leslies' Boy's and Gnl's Weekly :
the American Young Gentleman, and the
Dime Novels to be found on the counters of
every book store in the country. The habit
ual young reader of such stutf, becomes
morose, and when called out of the realms
of fancy in which he almost constantly
revels, is pe.evis'i and unhappy. His intel
lect becomes blunted, and lie forms a dis
taste, amounting to abhorrence, for all that
is usufal and practical. The New Or
leans Times, touching this subject, says:
"The influence of dime literature is very
apparent in the city of New York. Every
once in a while the police run across a nest
of boys who have banded together lor the
DUrre of cnrnr.iitting crime of one kind
ot another. Lately a band of these young
criminals, who had their headquarters
about the Grand Central depot, was cap
tured. The leader is about ffteen years of
age, and the ages of the boys who make up
his band range between seven and cine
vear. T"v in picking
pockets and in robbing school children.
This band had. bound itself together by a
most horrible oath, the form of which they
found in one of these pernicious dime novels.
There is a law against the sale of impure
and obscene literature, and there ought
certainly to be a law prohibiting the sale of
dime novels, and of all literature of the
dime novel class. These pernicious stories
which raise thieves, roblxTS and murderers
to the diguify of heroes, and which make
crime more attractive than virture are
powerful agents in increasing the number
of our criminals. Ce'rtainly, something
ought to be done to keep the minds of our
boys from being poisoned."
WHAT OF TnE FIGHT IN THE EM
The Republican wire-pullers of New
York, directed by the lecherous Conkliug,
have organized victory for the Democratic
party, and thrown it directly at its feet.
The Democracy need but stoop and pick it
up. But it wont stoop ! It seems bent up
on kickiug the victory aside, and plunging
into defeat. With pcrlcct harmony in its
ranks, a vigorous campaign would enable
it to carry the State by a majority of twenty-rive
thousand votes. Cornell, the Repub
lican candidate for Governor, is Conkling's
pet and tool, but exceedingly obnoxious to
the honest rank and filo. Murmurs of discon
tent and signs of displeasure, because of
his nomination, arc heard and seen all over
the State . I nfl uential members of the party
declare themselves outraged by tho nomi
nation through the public prints, and even
Republican journals give voice to the com
plaints. "An old Republican, writing to the
Evening Post says "I am satis
fied tho nomination of Mr. Cornell
was brought about by trickery and machine
management, by the aid of that arch con
triver and wire-puller, Senator Conkling.
The nominee !b not fit for the office and
thousands of Republicans will refuse to
support him." Another Republican of
good standing, writes: 'The discontent
over the nomination ol Cornell is wide
spread. 1 sinoerely desire tho success of
the Republican party; but I have no uso
fir such Republicanism as is represented
)y Mr. Mr. Cornell. " I believe his defeat is
the highest duty of all who. would keep
alive a pure national Republican party,
and to that eud I shall labor."

hatred may be suppressed, in a measure, but
it promises to burn unseen todefeat all efforts
at perfect harmony, and to send the party
out to battle, dreading the defeat its very

"JIM" BLAINE'S WAY.
Secretary Sherman spoke recently to 10.
000 people on the college grounds at Water
ville, Me. While he w::s speaking. Senator
Blaine was moving around r.mong the
.crowd, sitting under the tre-s with the
farmers, and lounging in their wagons with
tliern. One of his more intimate friend
brought up a bushi'nl farmer. "Senator,"
said lie, "1 want to make you acquainted
with Mr. Fergcson, of siich-anJ-suyi a
township." "Why!" exclaimed Blaine,
jumping up and grasping tho farmer by the
hand, "I don't need to be introduced to Mr.
Fergcson, unless he has forgotten me. Tt.e
last time I saw you," lib continued, squint
ing his eye up at the farmer in a. way that
peculiar to him, "you 'drove me with your
team across from Atbion to Waterville; and
t mighty good team you had. Did you
ever break that off-horse of jumping? Let's
see, that was in I'll never forget
that ride. How are Mrs. Fergcson and the
girls? Did that lxy of yours ever make
