The Meridian Blade does not admire the
sensational journalism of the day and sajs
the publishers of the dallies now spare no
pains or expense in getting reports of every
sensation or scandal that occurs. It thinks the
result will be that respectable people will soon
be forced to exclude the daily papers from
their homes unlets a reform takes place.
Whereupon the Brenham Dinner observes
that the large daily papers are the best judges
of the taste of their readers, and they publish
such news as suits the popular taste. It Is
the people and not the papers that are to
blame. The papers don't make the newsj
they only print it.
The Ulica Observer, with considerable
pertinency, remarks : "They have only two
newspapers in Saratoga, But when 25 young
Immigrant women arrived there, through the
lying representations of a rascally agent that
they could get positions in hotels, hungry,
homeless and penniless, those two news
papers mustered reporters enough to find and
lodge those friendless girls at a hotel until
places were found for them In Saratoga fam
ilies. We don't suppose those Saratoga re
porters have a surplus of money, but they have
hearts big enough to do a good deal more in
the way of practical charity than a good many
men with far greater worldly possessions."
Considerable discussion is belo&hsd by
the English press regarding the trial of O'Don-

Is questioned whether or not that be can be
tried In South Afiica, and a conviction se

men there, and a good sum of money his
already been raised to defray the expenses of
bis trial. The English authorities are consid'

Is the feir that a Government Stite trial there
might throw such a glamor over O'Donnell's
deed as to not only secure a juiy dliirree

by the Government snd a pension will no
doubt be given her.
There has been a number of rumors cur
rent la Washington of late respecting the
affairs of Mexico, and more pirticulirly in re
gard 10 a treaty that it was alleged had been
secretly negotiate! between the Mexican Re
public and the German Empire, by the terms
of which the Empire substantially guarantees
Ihe Integrity of Mexico. The rumor goes on
to say that the treaty has been effected against
strong remonstrances by the American Min
ister in the Metlcan capital, who Immediately
made a full report to to the Secretary of Stale
setting forth the fscls, and that the whole
milter has been concealed from the country
by the Washington Cabinet, The Chicago
Times, spesklg on the subject, says 1
"Of course, the American government can
assume no right, nor be supposed to have any
inclination, to Interfere with any affair of the
Southern Republic. That Republic has Ihe
same freedom and Independence in relation to
all the political powers of either hemisphere
which this Republic has Moreover, it has
the same intere't and motive this Republic has
in conserving, in all its legitimate meaning,
that doctrine which looks upon any interfer
ence or any complicity of the monarchical
powers of Europe in projects to extend their
political systems upon this continent as acts
unfriendly to the Republican peoples who
rightfully dominate it. This spirit the Mexi
can Republic, under every administration, has
always shown. Even when torn by civil dis
sensions and revolutionary factions, the Mex
ican people have been united in unjielding
hostility to every form and color of project by
foreign raonarchs to gain a footing or an
undue influence in that country. The
heroism, the unflinching and unswerving
resolution displayed by them under
circumstances the most disheartening, in the
struggle against the attempt to set up a branch
of the Austrian Imperial family in Mexico, at
tested this, not less than their spontaneous
gratitude toward America, evoked by the
exertion of Its good offices on their behalf
against that European enterprise. And the
promptness as well as the wsrmth of Ihe ac
ceptance oi the Meican government of Mr.
Illaine's notable invitation lo a general con
vention of all the Independent States of the
two American continents, with a view to
closer relations in the spirit of that American
theory, was a further attestation of the same
fact. It would be strange If should be found
true the rumor that Mexico, so soon after
having demonstrated its capability, unaided
by any but moral forces lent by its stronger
neighbor, to maintain by Its own strength its
own political Integrity against an European
monarchy, has abandoned Ihe sentiments it
has so long held in common with other
American Republics snd contras'ed with
another European monarchy to guarantee Its
