the smooth, uniform and satisfactory man

Utitfnr Trumbull ipoke until half put
tan o'clock and wm frequently Interrupted
by tho applauso of the people. Senator
Trumbull opened hit ipeoch by making
omo complimentary remarks concerning
Cairo and Hi future prospects when hor
railroads shall havo been-completed, pre
dicting for hor a glorious future From
this ho procoeded tonotlco tho Into speech
of Spoakor Blaino at Chicago, concerning
which ho spoke as follows:
The Liberal movement has for
its object, peaco and tho puri
fication of tho government.
This object which ought to command the
support of tM) good men of nil parties, is
mot by tho advocates of thoso in authori
ty, not by showing that tho abuses com
plained of do not exist and that reforms
are unccessary, but by misrepresentation
and slander of thoso who aro seeking
to bring about a purer and bolter admin
istration of tho government. Mr. Blaine,
Spoakor of tho House of Itopresentatives,
in a speech at Chicago a fow days tinco,
said : "From tho beginning thia'has boon
a campaign of extraordinarily vigorous,
lying," in which 1 quito argreo with him,
but tho "lying has been tnonopllzed by
tho Radicals with whom ho acts. For my
own part I havo nevor indulged in per
sonal attacks upon any one. I havo
spoken freely of existing evils and abi'scs
of government, and of illegal and corrupt
acts of officials, but of privato transac
tions and individuals as such, novor ;
Mr. Blaino in endeavoring todofend him
self nnd tbo majority of tho senato from
the charge, of having unfairly organized
and packed committees of investigation
with partisans and especial frionds of tho
officials whoso conduct was to bo invest!
Bated said : "That by Mr. Trumbull's nnd
Mr. Schurz's own" showing thoy deslro
committees to bo packed against ft fair
hearing of tho charges against the admin
istration of Gun. Grant." Mr. Blaino did
not and cannot adduco any proof in sup
port of this wanton calumny. Neither of
us ever desired moro than that tho frionds
of investigations should bo fairly
roprosonted upon tho committees. Mr.
Blaino says "certain allegations were
brought agninst the management of
the navy department in tho New
York 'Suu.' Mr. Trumbull came
and said that n investiga
tion would bo luovod in tho houie by
Gov. Blair of Michigan. Ho Intimated to
mo that ho hoped that thoro would bo
moro fairness in tho house investigation
than had beon shown in tho senato. I
told him of course 1 could not say any
thing about the appointment oi a special
committee, but what I would do in the fu
turo must bo judged by what I had dono
in tho past."
This is not a correct statomont of Mr.
Blaine's reply to my suggestion for a fair
committee. Can it bo that he has forgotten
his assurance that Mr. Biuir who oircred
the resolution would bo entitled to bo
chairman, and that ho would consult Mr.
Blair ns to tho composition of tho com
mittoo as soon ns tho resolution was
adoptud? Has ho further forgotton that
almost immediately on tbo adoption of
of the resolution ho announced tho com-
mitteo without such consultution 7 Gov.
Blair was unwillitiir in view of tho frc-
quunt packing of committees with especial
friends of tho accused to undortako the in
vestigation of tho alleged abuses in tho na
val department, unless ho could bo as
sured in advanco that ho would havo a
fair committes. It was to obtain that as
suranco that I called on Speaker Blaino.
I obtained it and so inlormcd Mr. JJlaine.
How well that ussuranco was kept subse
quent ovents, and tho conduct of a por
tion oi mo commiueo in conducting utti
investlgation as the attorneys of the
secretary of the navy, abundantly show
"."ortunatoiy u is not necossay to put my
word against Mr. Blaine's us to a conver

Having disposed of Mr. Blaine, ho
turned his attention for a short timo to a
general discussion of the political ques
tions of greater Importance which he han
dled in a very able mannor. But tho late
ness of the hour procludes tho possibility
of giving further extracts. At the closo of
the senator's remarks ho proposod threo
cheers for Honst Horace Greeley, which
were given with a will.
not say guilty of " vigorous lying," lie is
in hi. remarks at unicago. irutn isaji
ways consistent with itself, and althouL-tr
timo is often said to be immateriul,even in
contracts, it sometimes becomes of tho vory
essence ot a contract ana is nn iniaiuoie
test of truth. If u commission merchant
in Cliicago,to whom you had shipped grain
in the fall of 18i 2, wero toreportto you
that tho grain was destroyed in tho ware
house in tlio great tiro which occurred in
that city on tlio 0th of October, and
it were subsequently to appear that the
grain was not recnivod by tbo Chicago mer
chant till after tbo lire, what would be
thought of his statement that it was con
sumed in that groat conflagration V So if
Mr. HlHino, speauing in unicago mis weeK,
says that In March, 1871, bo solocted for
the performance ol a particiar sorvico,
a class of persons, who had no oxistonco
'till tho May following, tho wholo world
will sno no is mistaken in wual no says.
This is his language:
"Mr. Blair moved tho committee It
was appointed und vindicated the secre
tary of tho navy against tho charges of
thu Now York 'Sun.' Now Mr. Trumbull
intimates in talking about it, whonever ho
alludes to tho subject, that that was dono
bv a packed committee. Now that com
mittee consisted of tivo members, three of
whom wero Grcoloy mon. Cheers.
Gov. Blair, of Michigan, Mr. Warren, ot
New York, and Mr. Archor, of Mary
land, wero tho threo Greeloy men. Mr.
Peters, of Maine, and Mr. Sargent, of
California, wero tho two ltopublican
Tho rocord shows that Mr. Blaino ap
pointed tho committoo March I'.', 1872,
nearly two months before tho meeting
of the Cincinnati convention at which
Mr. Grooloy was nominated. When the
committee was raised thoro wore no
Greeley men in existence to appoint, and
consequently Mr. Maine's staternont that
he appointed three such men- on tho com
mittee cannot be true
Mr. Maine says " the committoo vindi
cated tho secretary of the navy against
the chargos of tho New York ' tjiin ', but
ho docs not vonturo to say that ho was
proporly acquitod. Tho very fact that a
mjority of the committoo vindicated
tho secretary from the chargo of having
paid out ol tho treasury in 1870, ninety
threo thousand dollars to navul contrac
tors who bad nrevlou )y boen paid all that
a bon I'd of otlicets had reported to be, or
.that was, duo them, in violation of a law
passed In ibw, wliicti declared tnal tho
sums previously paid "shall bo in full
discharge of nil claims against tho United
amies on acccount ot the vessels upon
which thu board made the allowanco "fur
uishus the best evidence whjch could bo
required to show the partisan character of
the committee. Lot tho pcoplo say
whether thoy approve the paying out of
$D'l,000 of their inonov u) parties not en
titled to it, and in daance of law, and
whether they believe that an impartial
commlttae would have justified tbo secre
tary in so doing.
Sir. Blaine 'further says "Mr. Trum
bull arraings bis associates, who aro sup
porting Mr. Greolev, because three of
them havo determined, that thu secrotary
of tho navy acted proporly." How much
does this statement of Mr. Maine diifor
from that "extraordinarily vigorous
lying" of which he speaks ?
Does not Mr. Blaine know that
no thron friends of Mr. Greeloy deter
mined that the secretary of tho navy acted
properly; so far from It Messrs. Blair
and Archor determined and reported that
he paid out $03,000 to tho Secors in viola
tion of law,

Combs are an emblem of civilization

folks, or soap and towels. Tlio old
(iteeks and ltomaus, and even the
Egyptians, made uso of these articles,
though tho fashion of them wus differ

of our readers may have seen, in their
grandmother's garrets, specimens of tho
old time comb as much linger than
ouis, as thu old-timu bonnets were
much hit ger than the modem ones.

probably any soft water will answer;
then get a piece of rock largo enough
to come nearly to the top, and tlio
more holes and cavities and ptojeetious
it has, the better it will suit the fish.
Put this in the middle, and then cover
the bottom with clean sand or gravel

And in the "llomancc of Wil'i.uu
Short-nose," the hero is spoken of us
wearing "a chaplet of booiiel'1 on b's
head. Subsequently the nr. me of the
cloth was used to signiiy the cap itself,
and thus we find mention of tiie bon
ne's, of piiests, and those of nobles,
which lust were of velvet, surrounded
by a coronet.
The bonnet wore by men in Eng
land in Henry VIII.'h time may still
bo seen on the heads of bccfe.i'eis

at table) of that king's court. Shake
spearo used the word "bonnet" to sig
nify a man's cap. Jlo makes Voluui
nia, the mother of Coriolanus, say to
that haughty patrician, "(Jo to them
with th s bonnet in thy ban'!." And
Hamlet says to Ozric, "Your bonnet
to its right uso : 'tis for the head."
Scott, in one of his wur-sougs, speaks
of "all tho blue bonnets (,, the
Scotch troops) being over .hu border."'
And to this day, among tho Scotch,
the word bonnet means a man's cap, and
a eraiiy person is said tjliavo "a bee in
his bonnet." In Eunice, tho word is
now used to signiiy a lady's cap, and

The first bonnets woin by ladies wero
of immense size, and weio literally for
tifications for tho head, being worn in
EiT.nco in t liu last days of the ci;li
tceiith century, at tho close of the firs I
rovoliitic ii. During the middle ages
the caps worn by ladies resjinbled tlio
fealhoisor ribbons. These hats weto
sometimes mudo of beaver, but gener
ally of plaited straw.
England, almio, of all European
countries, applied the word "bonnet" to
the covering of a lady's head. Dm ing
Queen Anno's reign, the ladies woro
gay-colored hoods, which wore thou
quite iho rage. In William Ill 's time
they woro lowers of hair covered with
lace caps, or ornamented with little
huts, lint tho hoods of Queen Anne's
time were a revival of tho piolty hood
bonuot known as tho "Miry Stuar.
hood," which first appeared in tho fif
teenth ceiiluiy, though not till a bun
i.t eil years later did it iccetve tho name
of tho unfortunate princess who always
woio it. This wus iu icality a hooJ,
and not properly u bonnet.
In Charles 11. 'h reign tnmcthin.' like
(ho modern bonnet was used, with deep
strings and mantilla. Our older read
ers nro familiar by romombraiico, and
our younger ones by illustrations, of
tlio "coal-scuttlo" bonnets worn by the
English ladies at tho beginning of tho
present century, which woro so-called
from thoir resemblance, when worn, to
tlmt articlo of furniture inverted.
When n lady's head was onvoloped in
one of theso fearful appendages, it was
impossible to see her profile, and vory
poles snails, and a few gold fih, are com

both the witer and the grass clean.
Some other kinds will do equally as
