The danger of overflow is now past, but

neccsbity of the aid ask-.-d by the states of

No slave ever yielded mure abject obe
dience to his master than ''Lon: Jones"
yields to the will of Senator t Loiian. To
men of ordinary self-assertion, bis truck

Tuk case of the contesting delegation

Tuy New York World thinks Judge
JKach, wbo Liu been appointed by Cover-
nor Cornell chief justice of the court ot up
peals of New York, will fill the place,
made vacant by the death of Chief Justice
Church, very acceptably. In the first
place, Bays the World, nobody knows Finch.
The chances are, therefore, that he will
have no favorites among the members of
the bar. In the second place, he has no
practice, and never had any- He will not,
therefore, bo troubled by any cases in which
he is interested. In the third place, there
is no evidence that he knows anything
about law, His mind, therefore, is in a
condition to be enlightened. Taking every
thing into consideration, the World thinks
a worse appointment might have been
TnE ceremonies attending the unveiling
of the Jackson statute at Nashville lately,
brought together over ten thousand ex
rebel soldiers. One of the incoming trains
stopped it the cemetery, near the city,
where the bodies of several hundred Union
soldiers lie buried, and several hundred
ex-rebels disembarked and entered the
cemetery. There, while the band played a
solemn dirge, they stood, with uncovered
heads, above the graves of the men who,
sixteen years before, they had met in the
crash and roar of battle. It was a specta
cle that not only disarmed derision and
ridicule, but brought tears to hundreds of
eyes. lliese es-reueis are iue men vino,
according to the Republican ranters of the
day, have not been whipped enough ! And
they never will be whipped enough so long
as hate and sectional animosity will contri
bute to republican success.
The demand that ex-Senator Bruce, of
Mississippi, be given the second place on
the Republican presidential ticket, is a de
mand the colored voters of the country
have an undoubted right to press with all
the vigor and earnestness of which they aTe
capable. They Ehould insist upon the nom
ination of Bruce, and take no denial, be
cause: 1. The south is entitled to the
vice-presidency. 2. Because the colored
element of our peculation constitutes near
ly one-fourth of the Republican party. 3.
Because no fact is better known than that,
without the colored vote, the Republican
party could not secure the electoral vote of
over a half-dozen states of the Union, and
because finally, although the "colored
troops'' have "fought nobly" for Republi
canism for a period of ten years or more,
they have been studiously and insultingly
fenced off from the public crib have had
no share of the public spoils except the
meagre share they were able to appropriate
to themselves, in spite of the unfriendly
efforts of their avaricious and ungrateful
political white contederates. But the de
mand shown to to be just and reason
able, will be utterly disregarded by
the convention, and those who
urge it will be told, for the thou
saudeth time, to "wait a little
longer;" that tbe eia has not yet dawned
when colored men should aspire to political
preferment, or ask to enjoy with their white
brethren an equitable share of the fruits of
victory. The convention of Wednesday
next will say this to the Douglasses, Turn
ers and Birds,Scotts' Gludneysand Oranges
ot the colored race, who will be in attend
ance, and they, quiety and uncomplainingly
submitting to the gross insult mid indig

I New York fiuu.
Independent Republicans in this city
who are opposed to the third term are sign
ing a pledgo not to vote lor General Grunt
it ho is nominated for tho presidency by the
Chicago convention, A similar pledgo is
being circulated in other cities ami villages
in this state. It is expected that 20,1)00
signatures will be obtained beforo the con
vention assembles. The papers will be
presented to tho Chicago convention as evi
dence ot the difficulty of carrying this statu
fur the Republicans if Geo. Grant iswiomi
nated. ANTI-GRANT "KICKING."
In fifty-eight workshops in Cincinnati,
a careful investigation has been made ami
the result is the ascertainment of the lact
that fifteen hundred of the Republican
workingnien employed in those Bhops will
not vote for Grant. Add this list to that of
seven hundred strong, which we published
a few days ago, of citizens who made the
declaration that they never would vote for
Grant again, and we have in Cincinnati
2,000 Republicans who will appose the
third term to the bitter end. Wo should
think this an indication of public senti
ment to which it would be worth whije to
pay some attention.
THE JOKE ON NEEDLES. .
Saline County Democrat.
At the receut Republican riot at Spring
field, Auditor Needles was defeated, which
has caused considerable surprise, as he has
heretofore been considered "tho strong
man" of the Radicals when it came to the
state canvass. A correspondent of the St.
Louis Republican thus tells how it was
done. Hereafter Tom Needles will not
look upon one-armed soldiers with that de
gree of aimiability as heretofore :
The most remarkable occurrence of the
entire six davs. and the freak of the con
vention, was the defeat of Auditor Needles
for renomination, which was accomplished
by C. B. Swiccrt. of Kankakee, a one-arm
ed soldier, and until to-day an unknown
candidate. This was a surprise to almost
everybody, and as much to the few who in
augurated the movement as anyone. Dur
ing the entire canvass Needles has been re
garded as the fortunate one, as he had no
opposition of supposed consequence, and
even when Swigert, who is a good man,
was nominated by request it was regarded
as a joke.
One ballot only was taKen during wnicu
Long John Wentworth sent for Swigert
who is a good looking, one armed soldier,
wno was lilted upon the shoulders ot a del
egate and exhibited while his armless coat-
sleeve wiggled at tne convention. inis
was enough, and prolonged cheering greet
ed the show, lollowed by very exciting
scenes, when before one could realize the
situation, enough votes were changed from
Needles who at one time had a majority
to Swigert and he was declared nomi
nated. The defeat of Mr. Meedles in this
manner is regarded by bis friends as hard
ly fair, as it was understood and believed
he had no opposition, and he made no can
vass. Needles' friends are bitter at his'
WATCHING ONE'S BLOOD.
AN INGENIOUS METHOD KY WniCH TUE CIR
CULATION CAN RE ORhERVhD.
An ingenious method has just b-.-en de
vised for actually obeeaviug the circulation
of the blood in mnn. Hitherto, except ia
the case of Purkning's experiment, in whicti
an observer can see the circulation in his
own retinal blood vessels, the evidence of
circulation in the human subject has been
entirely circumstantial, derived from the
tacts ot structure ot the circulatory organs
and from the manner in which the blood
flows from severed arteries and
veins. But by means of u
simple arrangement, invented by Dr.
C. Huter, of Giiefswood, it is
now possible to witness the actual flow of
blood in the blood vessels of another per
son, and that with sufficient accuracy to de
tect any abnormality in the circulation, and
bo to obtain invaluable ussUtance in the
diagnosis of disease.
Iu Dr. lluter's arrangement the patient's
head is fixed in a frame, something like
that used by photographers, on which is a
contrivance lor supporting a microscope
and lamp. The lower lip is drawn out and
fixed, by meaus of clips, on the stage of
the microscope, with its inner surtace up
wards, a strong light is thrown on this stir
face by a condenser, the microscope, pro
vided with a low-power ohiective, is
brought to h'M on the delicate net-work of
vessels, which can be seen in the puMtiui
indicated, even with the naked eye
The appearance presented is at first,
as if thu vessels were tilled with red in

THE EQUITABLE LIFE
Assurance Society of the United States.
120 BROADWAY NISW VOHK
The Popularity of the Equitable Life Assurance- Society,
indicated by the fact that for Eleven years its average an
nual New Business has been larger than that of any other
Company in the w orld, is due, in a great measure, to its well
known promptness in the payment of Death Claims, and its
rule never to take advantage of technicalities where an
equitable claim exists.
Asa GUARANTEE of this, and to counteract the perni
cious influence of a technical policy, adhered to by many
companies, the Equitable makes ALL ITS POLICIES, old and
new, throughout the United States. i
After the policy has been in force for three years.
' The Equitable Life has paid since its organization to
January 1st. 180. S51,8S2,736, and closed its
books upon that date without a contested or past due elaimV'
The Equitable Life Assurance Society was the first to in
TONTINE SAVINGS FUNI POLICY,
And thereby to popularize life inuranceto a degree
Ry the late report of the IiMiranee Commissioner for the
states of Massachusetts and New York, the Equitable Life
Assurance Society shows the following strong points:
FIRST The Equitable has a larger ratio ot assets to lia
bilities than any of the leading companies.
SECOND The Equitable saved more of its income last year
than any other company.
THIRD The Equitable' Heath rate was less last year than
any other of the leading companies.
FOURTH The Equitable realizes a higher rate of rent, or
