The Bulletin's hearty commendations.
The editor of the Chester Clarion, always
sensible in his discussions of political prin
ciples and governmental policies, .very pro
perly ridicules the pretence of Republican
sheets that the revival of business is as
cribable to the success of Sherman's resump
tion pluns. Tho revival is due, lie says, to
the enormous production of good crops in
this country and the failure of crops in for
eign lands. With good crops and fnir
prices the country will prosper no matter
what kind of currency is in circulation,
while witliout the products to export and
no demand for .our surplus nboad, resum
ption would not place a dollar in the
pockets of any man in the country outside
of ex-Senator Sherman's gold juggling
Is as interview with a Cincinnati Gaz
ette reporter Colonel Ingcrsoll indicated
the aims 'and objects of .his new party.
He said: "The Democratic party is not
entirely free f""n Catholic control; and the
jjopiiLiican party is not entirely secular in
cither its methods or cuds. So far as I
am concerned personally, I want tho lib
eral people and by liberal people I mean
those who are williny to give to others ull
the rights they claim for themselves, who
are willing to let religion be a personal af
fair, with which the state lias nothing to do.

or whatever you may please to call the or

to sec to it that no laws were made dis

and It U now equally trrtaln that only a
small portion of tin city D.-mraoy will
follow John Kollgy und his comivmloiw
into the camp of the cinMiiy. Mr. Kelly
announced, when ho received the numb
natiou for Governor, that his purpose was to
ruia tho party if ho cauld not rule It.
That is not the talk that rulers iimkn, or

THE NEW LIBERAL PARTY.
The Liberal Lcaguo convention ia fin
cinna-J, the other day, adopted a platform
uiwn which to erect a new party, that was,
in somethings, very obuoxiaus to Ingcrsoll
Wright, and quite all tho eminent gentlu
men who engineered the affair to a focus.
The socialists of Cincinnati swarmed into
the lull in great numbers, and by adroit.
management, changed the character of tho
convention from a delegate to a mass con
vention. This purpose accomplished, it
was with tho socialists to concede or take
precisely what they pleased.
Upon most of the planks of the platlorm
the Liberalists can stand ; but to tho planks
most in favor with tho socialists, they are
irreconcilably opposed, aud avow a purpose
to discard them at the first fnvorablo op
portunity. So, it seems, the New Party is
born with ft big quarrel oh its bauds, and
with a breaker ahead, upon which it de
clares a purpose to wreck itself.
The most obnoxious plank to such
Liberalists as Ingcrsoll, Mendum,
Wright, Butts, Denton aud
confederates, is the plank that demands the
repeal of all temperance laws. They
would have accepted a protest against Sun
day and sumptuary laws; but to ask that
all the legal restraints that have been
thrown around the manufacture, sale and
use of intoxicating liquors shall be stricken
down, was to call out from all the men of
Ingcrsoll's way of thinking, a loud and ear
The "buncombe" portion of the platform
is good, but taken as a whole, it may safely
be assumed that no great party will ever be
built up on such a superstructure. The
resolutions nre very lengthy, and wo must
satisfy ourselves, therefore, t ith the tele
The convention declares that the geneal
motive cf the National Liberal parly is to
realize more fufiy than has ever yet been
done the maiu object of a government by
the people as expressed iu the Declaration
of Independence and preamble ot the con
stitution of the United States; that to se
cure these purposes a new party is necessary
to administer aud reform the vmtiomd and
state governments. The principles enunci
ated arc equal and exact justic to all men
of whatever state or persuasion, religious or
political; peace, commerce and honest
friendship with all nations, entangling al
liances with none; the support of the state
governments in all their rights as the most
competent admiustrators of our domestic
concerns and tho surest bulwarks against
nuti-repnblican tendencies; the preservation
of tho general government in its whole
constitutional vigor; freedom of religion, ot
the press, of persons under protection of
habeas corpus and trial by juries impartially
selected; labor reforms of various kinds
arc asked for, legislation against tramps
condemned; reforms in the currency in use
and occupation of land, female emancipa
tion, universal compulsory secular educa
tion, condemning the creating of corpora
tions except for the public good and present
methods of legislation, ndvociting the
election of all public officers directly by the
people and favoring the repeal of all
Sabbath, sumptuary and temperance laws
There arc tubs fo " sorts of whales in
the platform, but as each whale c an't take
the tub that suits him and knock the bottom
out of the tubs,that don't suit; it is alto
gether probable that there will be the devil
to play among the whales, from the very

Much prudeiicc has been Miown by the

liberated exiles at Marseilles was out of
tho question. Hod lepublicariism of the
most advanced kind is yet rife in tho riio-
cean city, the excitable population of which
might have caused considerable embarrass
meut to tho authorities by demonstration, of
joy at tho return of thoso political prodigal
sons to their Xitherland; while Toulon,
albeit a strongly-garrissoned town, labors

Thus, in tho bluo waters of tho ancient
Portus Veneris, did tho transport Yar cast
auchor on .Monday morning. Luto on tho
previous evening sho had been sighted by
tlic crews of somo fishing vessels; the news
of her coining rapidly spread; nnd, so soo-
as the huge vessel cntored the harbor, she
was surrouudod by a flotilla of boats. Tlic
Var was immediately boarded by the au
thorities of tho port and tho Custom House
officers; and it is stated that much kindness
was shown by usually stern ''douaniers" to
wards the ex-convicts, who wcro allowed to
kePp Sundry Iittlo articles on which Cus
toms' duties might have beca demanded.
Noiio cf tho Communists, political or
otherwise, were suffered onboard the Var;
but, in the course of the afternoon, four
hundred and ten banished Frenchmen once
more set foot on tho '"belle et bonne tcrre do
rrancc. 1 here was presumably a propor
tion of ultra-democrats among tho towns
people of Port Ventres, the fishermen, and
the Spanish "arrieros'' who had come
down by tho mule-path trom
Lanza, m Catalonia, to toi tie iian-
y uls ; and soiue cries of "Vive la 1 lepubli-
que" were raised as the poor people who
lave suffered so much were landed ; but the
Communists, it is said, did not respond to
the cry. Their first care was to eat the pro
visions which had been collected for them
by sympathizing friends; the next was to
hurry away to the railway station.
A well-fed, prosperous Paris artisan ol

the madness of the Commune raged may,
gazing upon somo gaunt, weary wits,
phantom-looking exile, newly landed frem

The Commune of 18T1 wr,s, it is undenia
ble, a guilty and disastrous frenzy. Tl.e
number of the hostages, the destruction of
the public buildings, were tremendous
crimes, which posterity will justly regard
with horror and indignation: but if bygones
are ever allowed to bo bygones, the only
estimate with which the unfortunate men
who have just been restored to their native
land should be regarded must be a" feeling
of commiseration. There maybe professed
anarchists, incorrigible conspirators, nay,
desperately wicked men among them ; but
the bulk of their number are most sincerely
"to be pitied. Some of them possibly were
not guiltless of acts of jncendiai ifUi or free
booting. The criminality of the others did
not go beyond implication to a greater or
smaller extent iu revolutionary outbreak.
Their lot, if they escaped decimation at the
hands of such Generals as the Marquis de
Galhfet, was to be driven in droves, like
cattle, tethered together by ropes, and urged
on by the butt-ends of muskets along a
dusty-road, and under a burning sun, from
Paris to Versailles. There they were thuM
by hundreds together into the great bui'd
ings of the Orangery. ' Hunger, thirst, h

of their number to tho condition of vie'.
beasts, and the story of the "Fosse mix
Lions'' at the Orangery, could it ever -faithfully
narrated, might equal inintensty
of horror the record of the Black Hole ;t
Culcutta. Then, for such or" tin
convicted Communists who escaped the fn-
sillades of tho plain of Satory, came
the dreary journey in cellular vans to the
ports of embarkation, tho weeks of slow
agony passed in the cuscmate3 of Mont St.
Michel or Fort Lamalgue, the months of
wretched monotony und discomfort in i'ie
cages placed 'tween decks of tho convict
ships which bore them to Noumea. They
may not have been quite so savagely
treated ia their captivity as the most irre
concilable exiled Communists would have
us believe; but it is unquestionable that
they were nt one period subjected to
rigorous discipline; and that the very cir
cumstance of their detention entailed on
them an amount of physical and nseiitid
anguish, which may fairly be accepted us
adequate retribution fos the crime's, or the
follies ot which they may have been guilty.
Other transports full of pardoned Com
munists nro shortly expected in France.
Tho Picitrdio, the Calvados, and yet a third
great ship, are 'coming, ull laden with
amnestied prisoners, among whom it is said
that there arc many, who made themselves
conspicuMis by their excesses, in
Paris, during tho evil days ot Mny, 1S71.
The immediate consequence of this sudden
accession of Democrats to the population of
the French capital cannot be regarded,
without some nnfouut of unxicty; but it is
to bo hoped that the, mass of the returning
exiles have learned a little wisdom through
their dire misfortune. The stale will not
surely suffer these most itnlniiy mr,IV to
starve, and they must be n-sisted until they
can obtain work. Society, in France, seemf
to 1)0 disposed to extend to them the full
benefit of uu net of oblivion, if tht'y will
only do their best to make themselves and
their errors forgotten

Detroiter as he looked around..
The P. M. didu't shake his head and
crush tho inquirer's hopes all at once, ns
60me officials do, but slowly arose, looked
carefully into each ono of the six empty
boxes, peered into the old cigar-box on the
window-sill, and then answered:
"I don't see anything just now, but it is
only four days till tlie next mail."
"Is this a money-order office J'' continued
"Well, no, not exactly, though we handle
considerable money here."
"Can I get a dollar's worth of threes?"
asked the Detroitor after a pause.
"Well, no, not exactly," replied the of

can spare you five or six nov and the rest
There was another pause as the Postmas
