Senator Sherman, of Ohio, hat t last
triumphed over all personal enemies in
his own party and has become his own
successor. The combinations against him
were formidable, and tho war was bitter
from tho beginning ol his senatorial cam
paign to Its close.
The result has astonished many who be
lieved that there was strength enough
among his opponents to force him into
retirement. Hut tho dogged persistence
which has kept Sherman prominently be
fore the country, baffled the effort tnd
hopes of hit porsonal enemies. The demo
crats, who could lmvo tecurci his defeat
by uniting with the republican malcon
tents upon some unobjectionable anti
Grant man, re-illustrated "hncient tradi
tions, " by throwing away their votes on
Gen. Morgan and tho result is an admin
istration triumph, snatched from the very
jaws oi defeat; and so it will ever be, whilo
a policy so ruinous and counsels
so fatal, continue to provail.
CAS ADA STASDS A LOSE.
For th first time since Canada was con
quered ty Uritish arms, she is left without
a soldier of England upon her soil. The
old city of Quobcc, which in its day has
seen so many mutton, fortified with n
strength wWch Tenders it equal in resist
ance to Gibraltar, has now no garrison of
British soldiers j and together with Hali
fax, tho most important position on this
continent, for military purpoe, lm ben
evacuated. Theso two places were the
last which wero turned over to the
Early last month, the first batallon of
tho sixtieth rifles marched out of tho
fortresses surrounding Quobec, on
their way homo; on tho last of November,
tho seventy-eighth regiment embarked
at Halifax for Plymouth.
With tho withdrawal of tlioso troops,
the direct control and management of tho
mother country over tho Dominion of Can
ada ceased and tho country was left to tako
caro of herself. Sho Hands alone.
How Jong this condition of thing will
last and whether neeesiit, or inclination
will induco n chango in her political
relations with the United States, time will
show. Tho current belief in Canada is,
that union with this government f not

In cur issue of Saturday, wo published
an abstract, giving tho present condition
of our Navy and showing tho insufficiency
of the whole establishment, which should
awaVcn serious contemplations on tho
part of tho people. Tlicro aro
many subject" that fall under tho notion of
tho press, especially tlioso of u national
character, in regard to which misconcep
tion is so iinlvori.il and so perilous, that it
becomct our imperative duty to correct

Tho condition of tho Naval arm of the

al namo nor crodltablo to tho statesman

of deinagocnhrra oi? put, lie men have
avoided demlin Lowwii.- with the ques

nnd havo n reasonable hop ofMtccesi.
As already suggested, thceo are unpala
table truths.'but the sooner they are ktmwn
and appreciated tho sooner will the peo
ple servants in congress bo instigated to
a fulfillment of their trust, nnd legislate
for tho enlargement of the navy of the
United States. This will cost money, it Is
true; and spending the public treaure
except when it Is npplicd to the payment,
ton yoari beforo due, of tho national dobt
Is not popular just now. It might, how
ever, bo i.rgued that national expenditure'
when made to footer the ingenuity and
industry of our own people, Is not extrav
agance, but Is a benefit to the producing
and laboring interests of tho country.
Forty millions a year, dovotcd to improve
ment of our national defences, will give a
ureater impetus to prosperity at homo than
would ono hundred millions lavished for
Improvement of the national credit. In the
estimation of tho world, there Is something
which may be worth more to us than thlsi
and that is national dignity nnd power.
But aside from all thee reasons there
is one yet more potent. Wo nro told
from "Washington that our difficulties
with Spain nro beginning to bo smoky
and warlike. The president has msde a
demand on Spain for an nology for the
outrage on the Florida, nnd monitors
are being fitted out, to bo ready in case
that nation refuses to npologize. Arc we
ready to meet Spain on tho sea, if called to
this alternative? And l it not tho duty
of congre.stogive our sailors the ships nnd
guns nee .led to put them on something
like equal terms with the enemy, with nil
his modern improvements? Hut one re
ply can be made to these propositions and
that is Mich nn one as patriotism nnd com
mon prudence would dictate.

The citlzer.3 of Dalton, in tho western
part of this state, have, perhaps, never be
fore, says tho Boston Herald, been .o tho
roughly" excited ns they have been during
the pa'st week or two, about ono of tho
strangest cases of domestic troublo that it
has ever been our lot to chronicle. The
following details arc given by the Pitts
field EnrjU :
About n dozen years ago a youth of
nineteen, who Is now a respected, "and un
til recently, a well-to-do citizen of Dalton,
married a'girl of seventeen, and together
they began life hopeful and happy. Their
felicity, however, was not of long dura
tion, though until latterly their incompat
ibilitv 1ms not been so serious that either
sought a separation. There havo been
two children, ono of whom is now ten
and the other two years old. Becently it
bus been observed that this woman "has
been on very friendly term with a colored
man who has been working in that town,
and who has n wifo (a white woman) nnd
twoorthrco children now living in Dal
ton. Tho intimacy between this colored
mnn nnd the wifo nf thn D.iltnnlan lias
been noted by tha neighbors, though for
sometime it was unknown to ttio husband,
and only when hit nttention was called to
it by a triend did ho ''nvo any suspicions
that thnro was anything wrong. When
hi eyes wero fairly opened ho nt onco t
postulated with his wife, rebuMnit her for
tier manife'tations of a suspiciouly ardent
affection for the colored man, but" instead
of pentitenco and shamo, tho woman de
clared her lovo for her ebony friend,
vowed that she never" lovod
her husband, nnd told him that
her youngest child was not hU.
And more, it is said that ono day sho em
braced tho darkey in her husband's pre
nice, nnd said to him whilo caressing
him : "God known I lovo you." There
nro fuw men who would have looked upon
such a i-cenc without quickly punishing, if
not killing outright ono of tho guilty cren
turos, but this liinn was ono cf tho few.
Uf course ho could no longer tolerate her
in his house, and ho bado her pack up and
leave. Hut in sending her away ho was
surpassingly kind, for he not only ullowed
Jier to help herself to wlmt she pleased
and 6ho took liberally of her husband's
clothing f. r the uee of "her lover but ho
gave her, also, more thun it thousand dol
lar, in muiiey, which lie hud earned by his
industry and saved by economy, nnd then
told her to depart in peace, but never to
come near him again. On Tuesday night
of last week, when this bargain w"as con
summated, the colored man camo to this
town, hired n carriuge, drovo to Dalton,
nnd brought the woman nnd her vouagest
child to Pittxfleld, where, so fa'r as wo
know thoy aro now living, though it is re
porteil that ho has gone to California, and
that tho will coon join him there.
The darkey's wliito wifo nt Dalton, hav
ing ineanwhilo learned that another white
woman had supplanted her in tho airoct
ions of her husband, managed to get an
interview with tho parties beforo they left
town, nnd was for a litno determined " to
make trouble," but n present of n fifty dol
lar bill quirted her, and ho withdrew lior
opposition. Tho alfair is tho town talk of
Dalton, and tho victim of this shameful
infidelity lias the deepest sympathy of tho
entire community, lie is woll known as a
man of correct habit", kind heart and
plousant disposition. Ho occunies a
responsible position in ono of tho paper
mills of the town, and hi nmployors nnd
tho employes under him hold him in high
"w "1"- money no nuvn to UK hith-
less wife was all ho po.us,icl, but ho says
hencver inndo a better bargain in his life,
and never felt richer.

NEW STYLE OF VACCINATION.
Tho November number of ltarper'
Marianne gives the details of nn Improved
method of vaccination, which, In viow of
the ravages of small-pox in Philadelphia
and other cities, may perhaps desorvo tho
attention of our medical practitioners.
Tho new plan was first practiced by nMr.
Kills nn Kncllsh physician. Ordinary
vaccination Is performed by scraping otf
Iho cpidormis nnu inrusiiug mo vaccine
virus into a puncture made by tho lancet.
A greatly Improved method, however, con
sists in raising a blister by a drop of can
tharides applied to tho skin. This Is to bo
pricked and tho drop of fluid lot out, and
a fine vaccine point put in this plnco and
withdrawn nftcr a moment of delay; tho
U fulls back and nuito excludes
tho nir, shutting out any germs thntmlght
bo floating in the atmosphere. ThU method
has been practiced by Mr. Ellis for twenty
years, nnd out of hundreds of cases of vac
cination which ho has performed, ho has
never had an Instanco of blood-poisoning
or abscess, whilo by the ordlnnry method
nn occurrcnco of secondary nbsccs is by
no means uncommon, and thalof pyacnia
l nrien observed. The cotnparntii oiafctv
of this method is belloved to bo due, llr,
to tho exclusion of tho air, nnd, second, to
lessen tho size of the npcrturo for the intro
duction of mischfer than when tno punc
tures arc made by the lance.
Hero's n truo talo of woe, all about n

Sho married n wretch who loved her
money not wisely, but too well. "When
