The patriotic citizens of an Ohio
town varied their usual Fourth of July
festivities by adding the cheerful but
somewhat novel feature of digging up
the remains of a couple of little girls,
tomahawked by the Indians fifty years
ago, oud burying them over again.
The Vh;i Patriot boasts that the
associate editor of that paper, Dr. Wag
gonei,isa trcatist or stangulated her
nia, and lias succcs.-fully operated on
tint kind of hernia after night, by the
light of a taper, unassisted. We would
suggest, that in honor of the doctorV
ability in this respect, and to distinguish
him from ordinary editors, lie should
hereafter bo designated ns (Juts Wag
goner. Tin: New York World docs not be

The Union and I'acific railroads

HERNIA AND EDITORIAL AUIL-i
1TY.
Wc bad lotiir endeavored to deter
mine, satisfactorily to ourself, the qual-
fications of n good editor. 1 lie sub
ject bad been present with us in tho
daytime, and had obtruded itself into
our dreams nt night. It was, in short,
ghost-like in tho constancy with which
it haunted our goings-out and coinings-
in. Rut the last number or. tho J'ulmkt
Patriot cave to our troubled mind peace
upon this subject lifted the veil of
doubt and led us out into tlio unclouded
sunlight of a full knowledge of what
constitutes groituess in the editorial
profusion. Let us, therefore, on this
all important subject, go somewhat into
detail. The Patriot Has two iuu
fledged editors and an associate editor,
At (bo "associate," Mr. Potter, of the j
.11 nr.-vvtmv,
Journal, (in tho language of the Pa.
trhl) "endcavorc. to thro dirt; lnI -
.. .1 . .1.- ..M tlnuenntntn XV.1S
mating uiai ri""
soiucwiar 01 a .""
tiro. To repel this charge the editor of
tho Patriot grasps his gray goose quill
and i.iforms the astonished world that
tho "associate" is of all men tho best
'nullified to fill tho responsible position
of editor. Ho is, says Aldeu, a sur-
. . .
gcon ; an cscncwcr o. quacKcry j a
contributor to medical scionco through
the medical press. Now, here is a
combination of good qualities which
would stamp him at once ns an editor
of more than ordinary ability; hut
when wc aro told that the "associate"
ins successfully operated on ttrangu-
latcd hernia, after night, by tho light
of a taper, without assistance, wo are
forced irrcsisfahly to tho conclusion that
f ho had not becomoan editor tho loss to
the world would havo been irreparable.
If the associate had operated on hernia
simple we might still have doubted
his fitness for the editorial chair, hut
having successfully treated strangulated
hernia, after night, by the light of a ta
taper, unassisted, wc can doubt no
onger. Hernia is defined by Wiseman
to be : "A tumor arisine: from the pro
trusion of a part of the intestines or
omentum into a sac composed of the
peritoneum," and wc have no hesita
tion in saying that the successful treat
ment of a strangulated tumor of this
kind, after night, by the light of a ta
per, unassisted, is infallible evidence of
superior editorial ability. It is true,
that an editor of this kind miiiht be
more nl homo on the subject of guts
than on political or literary subjects,
and might occasionally mix stuffed sau
sages and tripe with Grant and the re
publican party, but still his editorial
genius would shino resplendent. Wo
thorcforo congratulate tho Patriot in
having secured the services as editor of
a man so thoroughly posted on hernia,
straugulated anil otherwise, mid are
sure that as h increased in familiarity
with guts his afTcctinn for tho rep ublt-1
can party will become intensified.

eminent; but us tho war was
unit out of tljo ordinary courf o
of events, so this extraordinary exertion of
power should lmvo been tomporary anu
promptly iiuitnuoneu so soon us tno wor
ceased. In tho revolutionary strugglo of
'our forofnthoH; OoorgojWajhingtoti was
for a timo invested wftli powers almost if
not absolutoly dictatorial. The moment
actual war ceased this greatest of military
chiefs gnvo up his commission, divested
himself of power, and left all political ques
tions lo bo settled by tho freo and peace
ful deliberations ot tho pcoplo. Tho whole
civilized world, its monnrchs, Its states
men, its scholars, its people, looked with
awo upon thu simple grandeur of Ameri
ca's hero. To-day tho world at largo docs
reverence to his memory as to no other
namo among those who have controlled the
political destinies of men. Tho human
raco takes prldo in him; shall wc, his own
countrymen, surrender our faith In his
wisdom?
Our great civil war ended six years ago;
deliberations of tlio.'noonln are not vet tree.
Powers havo been lately conferred, under
a law ot congress, upon tno Amorican pros
ident which ought not to bo entrusted to
any man, ana wnicn no man is uoou
enough or wiso enough to wield. At his
own discretion lie may, under this wicked
law, suspond 111 nny portion of tho coun
try, north, south, eiinor west, all tho law
ful rights .of its citizens and govern it by
military force, subject to no restraint but
that of tils own will a power less limited,
less L'unrcleu, more ulisoiuto man that con
fcrrcd upon President Lincoln in tho timo
of actual war.
Tlio great political question now boforo
us is whether, in tho future, wo nro to bo
tho subjects of what is commonly called a
strong government, or shall continuoto bo
ns licretolore, a strong people; wiiatcver is
coniorrcu on tlio government is so mucn
taken from tlioin. What many men call a
strong government( meaning ono 01 oxtcnu
cd, unlimited powers) 'necessarily Implies
a weakened people. Tho two ''a strong
government anu a strong people can
not exist together. Tho question, of what
ever wo shall tnuko 11 government strong
or keen the people strong, H ono that nl
ways underlies our party divisions, but is
at timet prcsontcu more lioluiynnu Ulstinct
ly than ntothcrs. It wim plainly presented
nt tlio revolution of 17iU. Tlio
advocates of 0 strong government
lost. it was again sharply pre
sented in tho contest winch Drought .Mr,
Jcll'erson into the presidency, when also
tho advocates of a strong govcrnmont woro
put down. It is again as shnrply jiroiont-
eu to us to-day ; anu whatovor (juoeuons
of lessor and moro temporary Importanco
may have divided tho American pcoplo on
other occasions, it is tholr dutv now to
consider, ubovo ull things, whothor tho ab
sorption of all power into tho central gov
ernment, which is going on ut n fearful
rate, is consistent with tho pormanent
welfare of tho people, or oven with tho
nermanont strength und endurance of tho
government itself.
It Ims been proved tuai tins great union
of ours cunnot to torn asunder. It is
clear, too, that tho rights of utates aro
rights within tlio union, best protected by
tho pcncotul remedies provided by tho
constitution. If, however, wo abandon
tlio wholesome principles which controll

111 then, loss of chtRic'.tr and vigor in the

of strength, as our only reliance, wo should
have lulled to preserve 1110 union.
Those among in who nro advocating
went thev call a stronger centrnl Lovnrn.

cvltably to weakness. A disregard of tho

of the republic must end In decay. What
wo need to insuro to our glorious union

keen tho pcoplo strong by limiting tho nets
of tho uovornmont to its nlmnlo
duties. Tho trovorrimcnt. ton. will thnn
bo strong in Its slmplicty, and In ltssccuro

Undor n system which scoksbyonocon

service must necessarily become moro and
moro corrupt; lor wotclirulncss over tho

simplify our tax-laws, both thoso which
rcguiato tho tarifl and thoso rolating to tho
internal revenue, nnd thorobv to roduco
tho olllcers cngagod in thoir enforcement
to n number that can bo well watched.
It is right that tho practice of celebrat
ing tho 4th of Julv should bo kopt up by
biiu -&UIJII1IIIIIJ BUiJIUi, IUUI1UUU, US lb W MS
for tlio purposo of resisting efforts made,

all who havo faith in tho constitution nnd
prldo in tho past history of our land, nnd
all who aro ready to guurd the tho Ameri

at this time, that our peoplo should bo re
minded nt what cost our tree government
was established, whul vigilance on the part
of great leaders it has required to preserve
it from timo to timo. nnd thut thov should
bo reminded, also, that wo hero have, In
fact, tho guardianship of tho causa of pop

No event could occur that would bo 'moro
disgraceful in tho history of man than that
wc, with our eminent advantages and with
this great trust in our hands, should sudor

nent nnd should imitato hero tho bad ex
amples found in tho old world, mak
ing ono man and bis will supreme
over tho peoplo and t'jeir rights. '
Wo should not emit, 011 this occasion, to
recall to our memory tho illustrious ad
ministrations of Jotferson nnd Jackson,
who, when colled nt difl'crent periods in
our history to tho presidency, although
themselves clothed with tho oxtensivo
powers legitimately belonging to that high
otlieo, and having, cncli of them, nn extra--ordinary
degreo of personal in
tluenco resulting from tho confi
dence nnd attachment of thn people,
abstained from tnking udvantngo
thereof to cnlnrgo their own powers, but,
on tho contrary, devoted themselves to re
storing tho propor limiin upon both tho ex
ecutive nnd h-glslntlvo departments of tho
fedora! government, which had bcon, in
many respects, ovorloskcd nnd disregarded
by their predecessors. "Wo shall best do
honor to tho momory of theso two
groat statesmen by ourselves renewing
tlio work in which thoy woro so earnest,
restraining unwlso and improvidont legis
lation, restorlngslmplicity nnd consequent
purity In tho administration of federal nf
lairs, combating tho disposition of con
gress to mcddlo with matters euttide of
their jurisdiction, lessening tho burdons
of taxation, and putting tho government
onco moro on tho safe track pointed out
in tno cuart icu to us by the wiso loundors
of tho republic.
Tho ncccptanco or non-accoptnnco of
certain nmcndmonU which havo recently

Unitod .States is not a practical question".
Tho civil status of tho colored mun is es
tablished, and ho Is in actual possession of
the right o sufl'riiga Tho (task bo fore us
is to savo tho constitution as a wholo. To
uvo it as it Is rcoulrcs our best efforts.
Tho qucstior. of tho day is whothor
wo are to live under a constitution at all,
which shall bo construed by an impartial
court, so as to limit and restrain, as it was
intended to do, lcglslntivo And executive
power alike, or undor a hollow form of a
constitution, interpreted according to tho
expediency of tho hour by congross itself,
such interpretation being enforcod by an
unrestrained oxecutivo. Tho danger is
imminent thut wo may loso sight of tho
