Tho cmporor of Brazil had tho picas-
uro of mooting at Lisbon his nephew, tho

that sovereign fcrty years ago. Dom IV-
dro I. had then abdicated tho throno of
Brazil nnd went to Ettropo to assert tho
rights of his daughlor, Donna Marin, to
tho crown of Portugal. Ono object of tho
visit of tho cmporor nnd empress to Eu-
ropo Is to tako chnrgo of thoir four grand
sons, whoso mother, their second daughtor,
tho princess Lcopoldinn, wlfo of Prit.co
Augustus of Saxc-Coburg, died somo
months ago nt Vienna.
Moro murmurlngs of discontent may
bo oxpoctcd In England shortly. It is an
nounced that tho queen's second son, tho
duko of Edinburgh, is to bo married to a
daughter of tho king of Denmark, a sister
of tho princess of "Wales. Tho young lady
has royal blood nnd n great variety of
christian nnmos, but no dowry. Tho
duke, who on his majority wns mado a lifo
pensioner on tho British nation to tho
amoun'. of $"C,000 a year, will expect an
Increase of his pension whon ho is married i
nnd tho queen, who has a prlvato tortuno
of SlD,000,00O, will doubtless npply to par
liament to voto a dowry to tho fuluro duch
ess. Great dissatisfaction was expressed
when tho house of commons granted
160,000 dowry and $30,000 pension to tho
princess Louise, nllhougn hor marriago

one. As tlio duKo ot Jxiinuurgn is tno

it is probablo thnt any attempt to procuro

road propositions to be voted upon
. r i i i
iiuii iuunuay uenianus more than a
passing notice. The.-e men, led by
u pcrsou whose motives cannot yet
be divined, are attempting to manu
facture capital against tho Cairo and
Vmccnucs road out of tho fact that
an ordinance lias been passed
by tho couuo'il prohibiting hogs
from running at largo in the streets
of tula city
"We arc well awaro that only very fool
'it'll inou, or fellows whoso hands have
bc'ii greased, could mako un issue so far
fetched and silly ; and, it must be ap.
parent to every one, that only natural-
b.irn idiots, or prejudiced scamps, could
be influenced by the talk of the leaders
of this movement. But in Cairo wo
have a conglomerated community, and
the foolish element is tlio noisiest if not
the fctrongest. We arc surprised at no
liinvement that this clement might
make. It is as destitute of biaius as
principle. The only distinguishing
features it has aro foolishness aud
tongue.
Let us see. Here is an ordinanco
which prohibits hogs from running at
large within tho. corporation limits.
Here, too, is a proposition to subscribe
to a railroad, which, when completed,
will lrini wealth and business to the
city. What possible rolation can that
hog ordinance have to that proposed
railroad proposition? Nono whatever;
and yet thero are a fw lnen in ti10

'road, and believe it would greatly
'benefit tho city, but wo own ho'M and

Tho dissatisfaction of tho old fogy
wing of tlio Democratic party, of Iowa,
with tho Now Departure recently taken
bv tho Stato convention, has culminated
in tho calling of another Stato convention,
to bo hold at Des Moines, on Agust 1.1
Tho call is head by tho notorious Lo
Grand Bylngton.
Hon. .1. Proctor Knott in Ills speed:
nt Standford last wcok said that n radical
"could seo a flva cent pleco further with

Kentucky governor could soo tho full moon

"Lord did not cut Harlan out lor a gov
ernor, nor did n suffering Savior dio for
such sins as Harlan and his parly had com
mitted."
The Savannah (Ga.) Republican now
urges that tho Southorn Democrats should
not tit present talk about political matters
It counsels a course of " masterly inactive

Northern Democracy about abstract
theories and party platforms? Tho lotto
may not suit tho South, but a Democratic
ndminslration will, and that is what wo
nro oftor."
Of Calob Gushing tho Washington
Capital has this to say: " Ho Is ono of tho
most wonderful men of lliu day. "With

HOW DICK HCHKI.I. FAILED WITH JOHNSON
AND SUCCEEDED WITH OltANT.
From tho Cincinnati Commercial.
It appears that Vnnderbilt's partner In
speculation, tho Hon. Dick Scholl, has
been playing his part In lurnishing rea
sons for Presldont Grant's consideration
why tho central railroad should not bo
conipellol to pay its tax to tho govern
ment. It is possiblo that Scholl did not
offer to furnish funds for tho next presi
dential campaign in caso tho decision woro
tavorublo to tho railroad. His own of ten -ropeuted
nccount of his falluro whon ho
ntUmpted a politico-financial trasnaction
with Andy Johnson, ought to havo pre
vented him from muking any such ofior.
Four years ngo, or nbout impeachment
times, money was very badly needed by
tho Johnson party in Washington for po
litical purposes. It was of tho utmost im
portance to Johnson himself that tho
moans should bo procured for carrying on
certain olections. and for othor political
objects. At this juncture Scholl turned
up in ushington and procured an inter
view with Andy.
"I'vo heard, Mr. President, that money
was needed to holp tho intorcst of our
party?"
"Yei," Bald Andy, "vory muoh hooded;
and I havo hoard that you woro willing to
raise somo oi it r
" Yos," was tho roply, '- perfectly willing,
;lud to do it. Hut now, Mr. Presldont,
et's talk business. There's fortv or fifty
millions of govornmont gold lying in tho
treasury which ought to bo Bold In tho
Now-York market ; and if you'll give mo an
order on Socrotary McCulloch. telling him
to givo mo tno sewing oi ton or twelve mil
lioi.s of that gold, I'll furnish all tho monoy
that s noodod for tho olections."
"Well, sir I" oxclaimod Johnson, as ho
rose from his chair, swelling up to twico
his natural proportions and towering
up to doubio nis ordinary height. "Woll,
sir," exclaimed he, with wruth on his faco,
determination in his voice, and n manner
which mado nis interlocutor supposo ho
would bo knocked down on tho spot, "no
such corrupt transaction can bo carried
on with me, nnd no such prosidontlal ordor
shall ovor bo issuod, elections or no elec
tions, political success or political posi
tion I Good day, sir I"
And ono of tho parlios nstantlv dlsan-
