TIIUKSDAY, APIIIL 10, 1883.
The Russian imperial courage is screwed
to the sticking point, and the coronation is to
take phce. The gorgeous ceremony ol
transfering the regalia of the imperial family
from the winter palace, at St. Petersburg, to
the Kremlin, at Moscow, came off on the I ith
inst. The streets were thronged, and the in
signia of royalty regaled many loyal eyes, and
mocked Nihilism with its trappings. The
military paraded and the procession consisted
of officials in full uniform in State coaches.
President Arthur seems to be breaking
down, not so much under the weight of offi
cial cares as under the intensity of his distaste
for them. He seems at times to lose self
command, and is rapidly estranging the old
friends with whose lively sympathy and sup
port he came into power. Though more a
passive unregard than meditated breach of
friendly relations, there is yet no doubt that
his separation from Conkling and other prom
inent stalwarts is wide and widening. He is
unquestionably longing for his safe delivery
out of the mire of politics, for a sense of be
ing, as other men, free from the cares of offi
cial station, and at liberty to enjoy life with
out the exactions of burdensome duties that
never end, and a flow of responsibilities that
THE Sunday of the 8th inst., at Salt Lake,
Utah, was jubilant with the howling bias
phemy of the polygamous Mormins; the
churches vocal with congratulations on the
"interference of Providence to protect polyg
amy from further legislation " The Joe
Smith of the period, said to be a chip of the
old block, declared that "his people" were
never so prosperous, or numerous, as now, ,
which he ascribed to the opposition of the
press, pulpit and Congress, of the country.
He said their settlement was 1500 miles in
circumference, and was extending. Apostle
Thatcher boasted of the defeat of Repre
sentatives who had put aside the rights of "this
people" to satisfy public clamor. This
sweet-scented mixture of hypocrisy and in
decency announces that "God was in the
political field and was turning the tide in fa
vor of polygamy." The aspect of affairs is
certainly not encouraging to lookers on. The
Indications of any prospect of suppressing
the religious rite of debauchery require a
microscope. It was a spicy day in the Mor
A DIsrATCH from Portland, Oregon, says :
"Chief Moses dec'ares that he cannot keep
his tribe from the war path unless a strip of
land 17 by 100 miles, taken from the reserva
tion last February, be restored." There is
probably little doubt that now, as in the past,
"strips of land taken from the reservations"
for some pretended consideration paid in
whisky, and other vaiieties of swindling, are
at the bottom of much of the Indian trouble.
If thr murderous rascals would capture un
armed lettleri and hold them without 111 treat-
tnt, as llQiUge unqcr weir ucmanai 0r
justice, the national sympathy would soon
overwhelm the government peace agents who
practice these villainies. It is the wretched
operations of the Intcrlordepartment which
still keeps charge of the Indians or its
agents, that justifies in the aboriginal mind
perfidy, treachery and murder, and makes this
work for the army. Vet the country has en
deavored in vain, for many years, to get their
transfer to the War department, which these
land stealing f gencies are powerful enough to
pelpetually baffle and prevent.
A row in sporting circles nt Chicago arose
from a declaration of some one that the final
game of the late billiard balk line tournament
played by Vigneaux and SchafTer was a stll.
The livel) sensibilities of the crowd that had
lost acres of money on the result furnished
credulity enough to organize the suspicion
into a mass. Hut such an idea would be ab
surd to anyone else, when illuminated by the
electric light that is shed on the understand
ing from the powerful battery constructed of
the ponderous vanity of Monsieur Vigneaux.
We are very much out of the way in our ap
preciation of the French element in that
champion's character if there could have been
money enough found without applying to
William II. Vandeibiltto induce him to give
himself away in that contest. The sporting
man very commonly descends to unworthy
behavior nnd loses himself in frenzies of in
credible meanness under heavy visitations of
bad luck. We will put up a million or so on
the good faith and integrity of the Frenchman,
who will now, perhaps, take in some of the
studdin' rails that have made him an exceed
ingly swell craft wherever he has sailed.
The last British shipment to this country is
of a society of de'ectives, whose functions lie
in the discovery of supposed exportations of
that terrible merchandize known as dynamite
to Iiriliili shores. The British Minister has
notified Secretary Frelinghuysen of the fact,
who has promised to lay the subject before
the President nnd cabinet on Arthur's return
from his Florida excursion. The American
people, in all sections, though believing
neighbor Bull more frightened than hurt, will
give an emphatic and unanimous welcome to
these English agents, and promote in all ways
the object in view. Irishmen who are so
blind as to make such a. step on the part of
Ireland's enemy and oppressor necessary,
should be taught speedily that there is no one
in America who will tolerate assassination as
an act of war, or fail to aid in bringing to jus
tice any who here engage in it. If Ireland
wants to resort to violence, in place of the
peaceful and patient persistence which the
world has approved, let her fight as Greece,
Poland and Hungary; fought, and be extermi
nated as they were or conquer, and not be
come a nation of assassins.
I1I5AVY CATTLE MOVKMKNT.
OrerTliree Thousand Car Loads 11 r Cattlo
to be Shipped From Sout horn Texus
to tho rail-Handle.
From tho Fort Worth Gazette.
For some time past the range in the South
ern part of the State has been more and more
curtailed by the settling up of the country by
agriculturists, necessitating the abandonment,
to a great extent, of pastoral lands, from the
fact that it was becoming more and more diffi
cult to drive cattle to any dssired point. As
soon as this became patent, Messrs. Ward &
Rugby, of Kansas city, who own upwards of
10,000 head of cattle in the section spoken of,
determined to transfer them to their ranch in
the Pan-handle. After surveying the trial it
was determined, if possible to get a rate any
thing like lair, to move the cattle by rail. A
number of other owners who wished to drive
cattle to Dodge city, Kansas, and also some
who wanted their cattle moved to the Pan
handle, authorized Mr. Charles Ward, one of
the firm mentioned, to get a rate for the whole
number, over 75.000 head ol cattle. Alter all
the railroad companies had been seen, a rate
of $35 per car was obtaintd, which being but
a tulle over $1 per ncaa trnm Aiuneim, a sta
tion on the hanta 1' c 245 miles soutu ol fort
Worth, to Wichita Falls, 114 miles north, on
the Fort Worth and Denver, the contract was
closed and this morning the cattle will begin
to be loaded at Milheim and taken without
change of cars to Wichita Falls. An average
of 25 cittlc can be put in a car, at which rate
it will take fully 3000 cars to move the herd
in question. Fourteen car loads will make
up a train, so it will take 215
trains, or as many trips to get the cattle
from one point to ihe other.
In conversation with Mr. John Dawson, a
orominent cattleman of this city, the gentle
man said this shipment was the biggist thing
ever heard of in Texas but was a foregone
conclusion when larms becan to multiply as
they had been doing sioith of here during the
the last tew years, it was 11 u opinion, tins
was onlv the advance guard and for a year to
come the railroad companies would be kept
busy moving the stocks of cattle from the
neighborhood of Corpus Chri'tl and other
points to the fine grazing country to be found
north of the falls. He had been through the
btate and could testily that It was to
day prac'ically impossible to use the trail; in
fact, there wis no trail left. In answer to the
nuestion if this movement would not cause
lands in the Pan-handle!to advance in nice,
Mr. Dawson said he thought not; that in fact
the suddIv of cattle would soon be very un
equal to the demand, and the Pan-handle
being nearest the market, cattle would be
driven out in vast herds, which would give
peace to the new-comers from the bouth.

panies have arranged to make the best time
