It is nearly a month since four French
Commissioners arrived at New York from
Havre on their way to -Boston with a view to
making proper arrangements for France at
the Boston exposition. We are not advised

Governor Butler, of Massachusetts, is
charged with military malpractice toward the
Vermont veterans at New Orleans in 1862.
The regiment was part of his command at
New Orleans. General Butler's military
usuages were sul generis.
The 69th anniversary of the battle of Ston
ington was celebrated pretty generally In Con
necticut on the loth instant. The singular
feature was the omission of the sham fight.
This is ascribed to the great mortality lately
attending that description of war.
When distilleis of whisky under prosecu
tion tender large offers of compromise, then
let the government press the prosecution with
the fury of a vesuvian eruption and the veloc
ity of a cyclone. Such is the oredicament In
United States vs. Goodrich Bush. Mangle
lJush and gobble all his taxes.
Among the Presidential timber furnished to
the Democratic National convention by the
author of "A Political Revelation," Is Mr.
Ilolman, of Indiana. Mr. Holman Is sup.
ported by his own journal, which originated
the wierd scheme. The editor Is asked if
this Is the man who has bid for the public
confidence by advertising. Such is fame.
The statesman who has won his reputation by
crying in the House of Representatives in all'
weathers and at all hours "I object," is thus
confounded with a patent medicine man. Mr,
Ilolman designs to draw votes, but Is not to
be Identified with one who draws pain from
the physical system.
It is chcerior to see Republican papers an
nounce that Senator Mahone It not to urge
his assessment on the Norfolk navy yard em
ployees. This is better than orders from
Washington. Let the respectable Republican
papers warn the Readjuster leader that the
country will not stand it If he persists in vio
lating the civil teiviec law. Nothing can be
imagined so scandalous. We do not care to
know that the President is in it. If he be so
much the worse for him. But President or
satrap it is as well for all concerned to under
stand that the country has some stake on this
question of civil service, and that it Is not
going to be run down by master or man. We
warn these offenders out of our own mouths.
There can be no more effectual and appro
priate disposition of the surplus millions now
rapidly accumulating in the national treasury
than to apply them to the cancellation of
greenbacks. Whatever portion of the surplus
circulation can be thus put out of the nay Is a
perfectly legitimate and most advantagcousj
adjustment ot the repletion, it is estimated
that there ate now about 300,000,000 of In
terest bearing bonds which are subject to call,
and all that are subject to call, during the
next eight years. The redemption ol these
bonds should be spread over the whole lime,
assigned to each year Its due portion. And
ith the rest of the treasury surplus the Secre
tary should cancel paper money. By this
course Congress will be relieved of its ten
dency to extravagance, and the treasury of lis
Ir is a large sited fued now progressing in
Louisiana. The two wings of the Demo
cratic party arc In the field under hostile lead
ers, one boutbon, the other liberal, and the
battle will be waged with unremitting futy
till the victor is declared. General Ogden Is
the hero par excellence of the 14th Sep'embcr
when the Federal and State forces met in bat
tle array some years ago. The other faction
is led by McKnery, the brother of the Mc
Kntry of land grabbing notoriety, himsell
Lieutenant Governor under Wilts with some
political advantages, and nothing else In his
favor. Adding up the prospects on both
sides it Is likely Ogden has the better chance.
In the meantime it may be only because the
Republicans have not an able leader, com
petent to make it a triangular fight that lltey
are counted out by the others and expected to
let the field go by default.
It is scarcely credible that the wages of pie
ty have been cut down In the penon of Rev.
Henry Ward Beechcr to the pitiful sum of
$!2,oco per annum and that the lecturing tour
Is a device to fill up the cranks. How can
Mr. Beecher be expected to keep up the dig
nity and humility ol Plymouth church on such
pay ! Mr. Beecher's career Is one of extraor
dinary success. Having triumphed overall
his enemies and established securely his per
fect Innocence of any departure from the
Brooklyn code of religious morals, how under
the friendly auspices of the Immaculate Sher
man, the great Gookins, and the others can It
be he is thus shorn on his pay, and shackled
in his use of the privileges of the Irceum ?
That Is If there Is, also, embargo on the
lecture funds. Mr. Beechcr was not gulped
by the Tiltons. He survived the dramatic
situation of the mutual friend. Had he fallen
In the adverse path diminished wages might
have been looked for. But seen under his
present advantages how can the thought of
any reduction be borne ?
We do not favor the transformation of
Tenilorial into State governments faster than
actual conditions justify. The Union is grow
ing fast enough, and the addition of an un
wieldy Senate to an unwieldy House will not
favor legislation. At the last session Dakota,
with 135,000 Inhabitants, was clamorous for
admission to the dignity and consequence of a
State of this Union. But It did not appear
that the more grave and sober citizens of the
Territory wanted a State government wilh its
army of dependants to be pensioned on Its
treasury. Then another obnoxious feature
was the burlesque of a pair of Federal Sena
tors with a following represented in the lower
House by n single member. We therefore
entertained the hope in the last session that
the question would be deferred. And It has
been with much advantage to Dakota. She
will appear at the doors of the coming Con
gress with her credentials prepared by aTerrl-
torial convention, a title that will admit of no
dispute, nor be disputed, and welcomed with
open arms to the glorious sisterhood, of which
she is to become one of the wealthiest and
proudest members, and In her political, social
and industrial influence the common pride and
boast of all.
What has become of the air problems
which were to have been solved not long ago
by balloon voyaging and have not been ? The
principle that everything Is possible of which
the mind can conceive a formula, is not, we
trust, to be conjured into fallacy through the
mere absence of experiment. None, deserv
ing mention, has been made in the project of
ballooning. Our latest memory of- its pro
gress is ol a discovery of ;xrial strata, under
the perishable point of altitude, throughout
which the air moves In a particular direction j
thus a change of direction would but require
a change of altitude. It was by virtue of such
alleged discovery that we were enchanted
into expectation. Nothing could have been
of more blooming promise than this theory
when last heard of. What has our esteemed
contemporary, the New York Graphic, done
with its xnal philosopher and its balloon t
Put It Thar.
