entloiia valuation, many of tho counties
north, without any uppureut cause, Miow
au alarming deureaie. It U to be hoped
that tho hoard of equalization will look
into this matter. For instance: Why
should tho value of Henry couuty'n tax
able cflecU decrease $2,050,730? Why u
decrease of 1,230,7-14 In Kane county ; a

Tho city of Qulncy with her 40,000 in

payn a tax on f3,000,000. There ia borne

Tho hundred and thirty-four wives,
made widows by the Avondale disaster,
will be mude comfortable for tho balaiico
of their Hvcb, so fur as this world's goods
can make them so. Tho appeal in their
behalf Is gonerous aid almost universal.
From all quarters money is pouring in,
and wo are toid that from present ap
pearances It is prolmblo that the sum of
5260,000 will be raised aud forwarded
within a mouth. U is specially note
worthy that most of tho collections nro
mudo in small sums, varying from'Sl to
$10, thus showing that sympathy with

been publishing earnest appeal to tbo

to them when they thought they had n

Col. John G. Kllnck, a veteran olilcer
of tho war and latterly one of tho ablest
of the republican speakers in tho west
ern Now York, has abandoned the re
publican party and announced his deter
mination to act hereafter with tho democ
racy. In a lettertothoRoehester'Unlon',
Col. Kllnck writes: "At tho organlza.
tlon of tho republican party, and from
thut time to the present, I have voted tho
entire ticket 'uuscratched,' never having
frpllt a ticket. In doing this I know I
haveVoted for raatiy unworthy men, hut
havo swallowed everything for the sake
of the party. I have given us much
time and money as my circumstances
would allow, 'havo stumped several of
the states, and all in all, have done a
good deal of hard work. I havo perse
cuted the democratic 'taints' as fur as In
me lay, and In all ways blocked thedem
ocratlc wheels. All this have I dono
cniirolentlousdy, and, its I thought, for
tho best interests of the county. I can
not further sustain the so-called republi
can party, and will not, and If I live
shall vote the entire democratic ticket at
tho approaching election."
'I he Hoard of Education In Cincinnati
have had under consideration, for many
weeks, the removal of such obstacles In
the public schools as are objected to by
Catholic parents. One of theso obstacles
was conceived to be the protectant bible.
To ascertain whether tho entire oblitera

board waited upon Jilshop 1'urcell, on

On a single Sabbath iu July $41 ,004
were collected In the Romish churches
in and near New York (not including
Long Island nor New Jersey), for tho Ko
home one has drawn up a rery correct
bill of Indictment ugalnst tho radical
party. It Is one that can bo sustained by
facts and figures. In this bill of ludlct
ment tlio radical leaders stand charged
with calling themselves Unionists they
have consummated and inanltalned dis
union. AU'ectlug economy, they havo
given us the costliest government on
earth. Prating of virtue, they mudo it
the most corrupt. Clamoring for equal
rights, they have proscribed moro peo
ple than any monarchy iu Christendom.
Invoking freedom, they established and
maintained tho darkest despotism lu
eleven stales. Professing toleration,
they proclaim ucceptaucu of their creed
the alternative of ostracism and dis
franchisement. Howling nbout purify
ing the government, they havo mado
dishonesty and ofilco holding identical.
Preaching principle, they subsist by
pasioii aud prejudice Deploring caste,
thoy olovato blacks abovo the whites In
two-thirds of the country. Magnifying
loyalty, they trample out every worthy
principle or our system. Claiming states
manship, their otllcials nre cither con
spirators or thUves. Lauding independ
ence, they are tho servile slaves of a
party calicu. Proteudlng to invito criti
cism, they stifle freedom of debate in
congress by partisan rule, and drown
t elsewhere in blood. Insisting upon
peace, they prolong tho old strlfo to stir
up a new one.
Tho number of detectives engaged in
hunting up and doteotlng frauds on the
revenue are legion. The frauds in tho
tobacco and whisky business are num
berless. Daily and hourly, all over the
country, the detectives are, aa a general
rule, a bigger sot of rascals than the par
ties they detect and arrest, and a few
greenbacks qulotly handed over, settles
the question. Some other system for
collecting tho revenue thuu tlio one now
iu operation, will havo to bo adopted.
Th present ouo ought to be called u sys
tem to encourugu rascality Instead of one
to collect revenue.
