Eomi fiend of the infernal world threw a
burning fluid Into the face of a young citl In
a street cir In New Orleans, aged IS, who
hippily did not loie her sight, nor was other

Till Dafotser French Opera company,
numbering 90 persons, left Havre Friday,
October 12, for New Otleans, via New York.
They are expected to arrive in the Queen City
about the end of October.
And now the New Orleans 1'icayune says :
"Tilden is nothing but a scheming politician,
and not a statesman at all," and the question
is how is Tilden, I'resl Jentlally speaking, (o

Till immaculate Frank James complains of
his calumniators. They have suppressed the
fact that the surrender of that great man to
the police authorities was "absolutely condi

We Ari'ROVE of great missions and great

Wisconsin attempted another cyclone on
the 9th Instant. It was by no meaps a failure.
Everything, loose went skyward, and it was
obvious there was a good deal of lightning
flying about, making all sorts of angles, and
bent on mischief. Hut no one was killed.
Some bams were lifted out of place, and a few
stacks of hay disappeared. It is an impres
sion of our own that Wisconsin will presently
excel in cyclones.
A meeting ol Cuban patriols about 400 In
number, convened on the 10th instant in New
York, to do honor to the memory of those
brave men who had died In the cause of
Cuban liberty. Cuba Is a living Illustration of
the great truth
'That Freedom's battle onco begun,
Kcrjucathed from bleeding aim to son
Though oftea lost, Is always won,"
for no heart that throbs with the love of free
dom can doubt that the abhorred yoke of the
Spanish tyrant will be cast off before long.
Cubans are in arms to day, the cause is, ana
will remain, a living cause.
It is announced that the "resident is about
to pardon Sergeant Mason. So tardy an act
of grace Involves more justice to President
Arthur than to Mason. It is difficult to com
prebend how so many sided a wrong could
have failed to accomplish its own cure within
so long a time. Wrongfully tried by a
tribunal without authority, he was convicted
without proof of any crime known to the mil
itary lav,. But putting aside the question of
his accountability, or his guillt, the petitions
asking for bis release were signed by 900,000
persons. We ask, too, for Mason's Instant
release, but we ask for it in the interest of
A little girl in New Orleans, named Mary
Lord, while dipping water in the Mississippi
for her mother, fell in. Poor little Marjl In
her brief struggle not unconscious of her fate,
nor of the parting that awaited her, nor that
she died for mother, what were the hurried
thoughts that ran through her mind and pre
pared her for the wondrous change of world
for world, of light and loveliness for those ac
customed scenes from which the glory had
passed away, In that brief moment f Over
(.very mind hovers a consolation that goes
with it in death. None fall to seize It, none
to hold fast, none to bi comforted and sus
tained by It in the trying hour. We will not
believe that little Mary I-otd was not gieeted
by loving voices, and made welcome wher
ever her little feet were led when they thus
passed away from earth, llybye, Mary I
The Temperance Cause.
On the 10th instant the anniversary of the
late Father Matlhew's birthday, the Cooper
Institute, of New Yotk, was crowded with en
thusiastic admirers of the great apostle. There
were doubtless many present who knew the
popular decedant, and had heard his voice on
occasions when he called together by thous
ands the earnest advocates of the great cause
of temperance In lis eaily days. There was
then but the one great impressive speaker on
temperance. At times Mr. llarnum would en
tertain the public, in his way, with au anec
dotal narrative of temperance experiences.
Hut to the cause Father Matthew gave all his
lime, energy and industry. There is no doubt
that he delivered more temperance addfetses
in his -lay than were ever delivered in any
cause by one speaker. All were orations of a
high order, adapted to promote the best good
of society and of the human lace.
A Step Backward,
The Hoard of New Yotk Aldermen at their
last meeting recalled from the Mayor the reso
lution authorizing the establishment of the
New York news stands, which had been sent
to him for approval, and on receiving it back
referred it to the Committee on Slreets, to be
So unequivocal a rumpus has not been
raited this many a day as that of which the
Hoard of Aldermen found themselves the vety
stupid cause. The lesson of the Incident Is
that the Municipal Council should consist of
two Hoards; one called Aldermen, the other
Assistant Aldermen; the object being chiefly
to operate such check upon Immoderate or In
judicious action. Had there been an under
board it is at least possible the resolution
would not have passed. What the Commit
tee on Sltcets will do with It Is scarcely a
question. Alter so much commotion which is
apart from the question, and so much reason
able complaint which belongs to It, the com.
mlltee will scarcely stumble upon an Injustice
so obvious and an outcry so universal.
The Southern Pacific Land Grab,
We have not been without repeated as
surances during the last six months that Secre-ta-yTellir
was about to procoucce ngiiost
the Impudent application of the South'.
Pacific railroad for the land subsidy granted
by Congress to the Texas Pacific, which the
latter never acquired. That the Secretary,
however, has not pronounced such judgment
is conspicuously shown by another announce
ment that he Is about to do so. We shall
greet with s'goal satisfaction such decision of
Mr. Teller. By any other he would dishonor
hlmsell and his high office. Yet It is due to
Mr. Teller to recognize the fact th it there Is
a great deal in the boot at which he could
barter his honor for the assured infamy of
turning over the land to the corporation that
Is dishonrst enough to ask for it, and un
scrupulous enough to expect it. It is not a
common thing for the Goulds and Hunting
tons to be denied the spoil they seek in
covert ways. But we trust the Secretary will
not longer withold this decision, but give it at
once the form and force of an otficial record,
The Mexicans severelv rritlri. nnfrat
Crook's Indian policy. We do not, ourselves,
see me qualities in Ueneral Crook which are
measurably conceded by the Government.
His presence is not of any authority with the
Indians. He designs to rule them through
his abilily to do them service, not his ability
to chastise them. We regard this a long
recognized error. There have been 40 years
of conciliation nrartlrpd 'niviird lh Tn.li.n l.v

ine country has had enough of it. It is ap
parent that in General Crook's campaigns the
Indians have their own way. He seeks no
reign of force over them, does not disarm or
intimidate them. He pleads their cause with
the G overnment and the departments. He is
essentially the procheln am! of the Indians.
And while he is claiming reservations for
them, and supporting, by his Intercession,
their demands of every kind, it is well known
that the mountains of Mexico are full of them,
ready for the war path upon the slightest pro
vocation. We hope when spring again stirs
in the pulse of the red man, and the time is
again arrived for the settlers to be waty, that
General Crook will be made to give place to
another sort of warlor. We want an uncondi
tional Indian fighter.
The New York Semi-Weekly Evening
Post of October 2, 18S3, says: "Mr. Murray,
of Adirondack and other fame, and for some
time a popular minister in Boston, has taken
to lecturing against the received Christian
theology, beginning on Sunday in this city.
The lecture was, however, probably simply a
"prelude" to the announcement that he was
going to deliver too lectures throughout the
country, and would afterwards open a law
office in San Antonio, Texas, and that he
"owed a few debts," which he would pay in
"a short time." The law is a profession,
however, in which success is so difficult that
nowbody can well begin it too early, and a
gentleman who Is going to enter it with a gray
beard 1 and hair has not a day to lose, especially
If he has a few unsatlified debts. We would
therefore suggest the abandonment of the
hundred lectures, and the prompt opening of
the San Antonio office, and the postponement
of any further demolition of the Pentateuch
and the theologians. They will always keep,
and Mr. Murray can take them up after he has
built uo his practice and settled with his
creditors. The latter have 10 times more im
portance to him than the theologians.
