A law which went into operation in

much trouble to liquor sellers. It gives
licensing boards in towns and cities power

oJclock in the morning, and all day on Sun
day. In Cambridge, where the law has
been enforced, the dealers say that the con

to fully fifty per cent, of the former trade

Complaints are being made that the
national board of health is a very expen
sive institution. They otk an appropria
tion of $350,000 for the present year, and
the appropriation committee recommended
that they receive but $175,000, as, in their
opinion, that sum should be ambly suffi
cient. It has been charged that the board
of health hus not only been txtravagent in
already expending $475,000, but has enter
ed into contracts, in violation of the law,
requiring the expenditure ot over $1S0,000
for building quarantine hospitals.
There is another matter that must be
attended to before congress can adjourn.
It is the Ute agreement bill. It passed the
senate two months ago and should have
been taken up in the house immediately.
Neglect of this measure would doubtless
cause an intensive Indian war. The In
dians are anxious to know what disposition
is to be made of them, and belore long
their patience will be exhausted and they
will' begin to think the frauds of last sum
mer are to be repeated. The bill as passed
by the senate gives the Indians (the Utes)
lands in severalty. The house is under
stood to be opposed to this idea, and a con
ference, committee will probably be ap
pointed. We have received a circular announcing
that the faculty ti the State Normal uni
versity, at Normal, will hold a special term
for actual teachers, this summer, beginning
August 2nd, and continuing four weeks.
All the faculty will be present to give in
struction; and opportunity will be afforded
to any teachers of the 6tate, to pursue any
study in the curriculum of the university,
provided only that they are prepared for it.
The magnificent laboratories of the univer
sity will be open for students to work in
them. Tuition will be free to all actual
teachers who have taught not less than
three terms. All the railroads centering at
Bloomington will give reduced rates to
members. For further particulars, teachers
should address President Ilewett, at
Mame Alexandrovsa, empress of Rus
sia, who died at St. Petersburg a ew days
ago, in the fifty-Bixth year of her age, was
the daughter of the grand duke of Hesse
Darmstadt. On April 28, 1841, she was
married to Alexander I, the reigning czar,
then the crown priuce of Russia. It was
purely a lovo match, but in the intervening
years, the emperor has become estrange 1
from his wife by his passion for the noto
rious Princess Dolgorouki who permanent
ly occupied apartments in the winter palace
during the past winter, while the empress
lay in a most critical state at Cannes, in the
south of France. She was removed, more
dead than alive, by special train to St. Pe
tersburg. Death was doubtless, a relief to
this Buffering woman, to whom life had
lost even the limited charms pertaining to
royal existence in Russia.

last, a circular letter, signed by a largo
number of distinguished clergymen, was
handed to Mr. Beecher and other ministers
of the gospel, of New York and Brooklyn,
suggesting the propriety of offering up a
prayer for the Chicago and Cincinnati con
ventions. Mr. Beecher, in commenting up
on the letter said :
4,I am far from saying that with suitablo
limitations and explanations this would bo
unwiso. One thing is very certain, that
both of these conventions need prayers, and
another thing is just as certain, that is, if
prayer doesn't do them any good it won't do
them any harm; that praying tor these men
is perfectly safe; you run no risk, and that
we know so little about the divine method
of operation, ana as the exigency is real and
profound, and as prayer involves so little
expenditure, I think we might afford to

houses, and every day, provided we arc not
too much disappointed in the result."'
REPUBLICANISM IN 1880 AND 1880.
St. LouiB Republican.
When, twenty years ago, the Republican
party nominated its first successful presi
dential candidate, it was a party of princi
ples, not ot mere persons. Lincoln, sew
ard and other competitors for tho prize had
their respective friends who worked vigor
ously for them; but inside as well as out
side the convention all Republicans felt
that the political ideas of the organization
were ot infinitely more importance than the
claims of any individual, however eminent,
however popular. Ihese ideas came nrst;
the men a long way behind them. Rather
than sacrifice a jot or title of Republican
principle, or leave the smallest doubt in
the public mind concerning it, the Chicago
convention of 1800 would have thrown
Lincoln, Seward and their companions
overboard and drawn a candidate from the
depths of obscurity. Whatever else may
be said of the Republicanism of that day,
it cannot bo charged with a ltfck of firmly
held and clearly defined opinions on sub
jects of national interests and importance.
In the same city the same party opened
its convention yesterday. For many months
past the Republican clans have been pre
paring for the decisive struggle. The air
has been full ot the sounds of preliminary
battle. There has been fighting all along
the family line. The rumble of the ma
chine has been echoed oy the yells and
groans of the wrathful groans of that mod
ern Juggernaut. The crack of the leaders'
last has brought kicks and curses from in
dignant followers. Between the contend
ing factions there has been "war to the
knife, and knife to the hilt," and wounds
have been given and received which
no partisan medicament can ever
heal. Yet, amid all this clamor
and strife, ail this crimination and re
crimination, all this desperate deiuagog
uery on the one side and tierce antagonism
on the other not a single word had -been
said about the principles at stake. Neither
before the convention nor iu it has there
been the slightest allusion to the funda
mental ideas which are supposed to be the
cohesive element, the very lifo,Vf every
party. The question has been and still is,
an altogether personal one. Ideas and
principles have been thrust out of sight
and out ot mind to make room for the can
didate, lie is everything; all the rest is
nothing. Grat-t and anti-Grant, have been
the two gods of the Republican ecumenical
council; worshipped in Central African
farhion, with beating of tomtoms, swinging
ot clubs, acd prodigious howling. What
creeds the rival deities represent nobody
knows and nobody cares.
So the party which owes its origin and
earliest success to ideas and principles,
making everything subservient to them, has
practically repudiated them altogether, in
stalling in their place a man who may do
hat he pleases so long as he keeps the
party in power. "To this complexion has
it come at last.'.' In the republicanism of
1880 no trail or trace of the republicanism
of 1800 can be found. It has disappeared
as utterly as a lump of lead dropped in mid
ocean. The man power has swallowed it,
and on the altar of that power have been
sacrificed honor, honesty, consistency and
decency; all that makes a party respecta
ble, all that lends it strength, all" that gives
it the right to live
A TLEA FOR MORRISON.
St. Louis Times.
Owing to a combination of circumstances
not likely to occur socn again, the state of
Illinois has now an opportunity to name
the next president ot the United' States.
Assuming the nomination of Grant at
Chicago as a probably fact, all that is nec
essary to secure the presidency only to Illi
nois but to the Democracy, is.t'or that state
to present, as her camiida'to at Cincinnati, a
man with an unblemished record, personal
and political, on whum the Democracy of
the United States can unite.

cicntly prominent to secure the nomination,
and possessing the requite qualifications in

We anower, yts. Without disparaging
the claims of any of the gentlemen nanjed
in that state for the presidency, there is one
against whom no voice, within or without

His name hus been sufficiently promi

his keen perception of right, backed by that
higher and finer moral courage- which ena
bles a man to maintain tho right, even at
the sacrifice of self, has been amply proven
during his long public career, while count
less recreants to tho Democratic faith have
been rewarded with place and power.
' If tho Democrats are wiso they will not
fritter away this magnificent opportunity
by internal dissensions. Let them united
ly present the name of Morrison to the na
tional convention, and tho voice of discord
within the party will be hushed. Victory
will be assured, and tho great state which
contributed to overthrow Democratic ascen

parents without sleep. Returning home
the day following, the father found the
baby still worse; and while contemplating
another sleepless night, the mother stepped
from the room to attend to 6ome domestic
