Senator Ben. Harrison is regarded
enough of a candidate for president to be un
able to attend the Republican National con
vention in his capacity as a delegate-at-large,
and his seat in the convention will be taken
by Mr. Horn, the colored editor of the In
dianapolis Standard. Mr. Harrison need
hardiy stand on this punctilio. He is not a
candidate for president. Nobody in Indiana
is for him. If the Hoosiers have any favorite
son his name is Walter Q. Gresham. And
there is another thing Mr. Harrison might
put in his pipe. Mr. Quay, of Pennsylvania,
a man wonderfully inside of politics, says
that "the only ironclad pledge taken by a
majority ot the Pennsylvania delegation is
that they will not vote for Benjamin Harri
son of Jndiana " Life is short and its plea
sures are fleeting, and Brother Harrison need
. my himself the recreation of going to
Chicago and helping kill off some other fel
low. As Indiana is stout for Blame, he
might try his 'prentice hand on him.
Treee is something absurd to the people
of this country in the precautions taken by
te queen of England when 6hc goes on ever
. irt a journey. She is now going over
to the continent, and the English papers,
and the cablegrams to this country are filled
with details of the precautious which are
taken to guard her against possible attack.
There is a pilot engine which goes in front
of her train, and on this pilot are s
very distinguished railway officials. G i
within sight of each other arc Btationed
the entire distance of the railway
over which the royal train passes, and
all Scotland yard is on duty to
sec that no suspicious characters are prowl
ing anywhere along the route. This is worse
than Russia, for even the hated Czar takes
no such elaborate precautions when on a
journey away from the capital. In fine,
there is no ruler among the civilized na
tions who feels obliged to move about sur
rounded by spies and guards whose extent is
that of an army. What is the inference
from this? Is it that these precautions are
he outcome of personal cowardice on the
'part of the person thus protected?
•r is it to be charged to the character
of the government as in the case of the
Russian autocratl If the latter, there
must be some fault in the administration of
affairs, for it i 6 not possible that assassina
tion should shadow the ruler of a country
unless there were some fault in the system
of government. It would be more chai I
to attribute all these precautions to the
timidity of an old woman. There is no po
litical would-be assassin living who does not
know that the killing of the queen would
damage any cause in whose interest the
crime should be committed. There is not
an Irish dynamiter who is unaware of the
fact that the killing of Victoria would be
simply a cowardly and useless murder. •

only some 470,000 men for the protection of
the*"right little, tight little island." T

If Great Britain is in thi3 shocking con

world, and half a million troops available to
guard a territory a trifle larger than Minne

comparison? We have hundreds of times as
much territory to I . We have only
some 20.000 soldiers to be called on in
of emergency, aud our entire navy does not
amountto the value of the British gun-'

It has not within tiie last halt century at

the Crimea with the French and the Turks as
allies, and it is historical that the French
did all the vital fighting that was done during
the contest. Siuce that period it has fought
Boers, Afghans, Abyssinians, Zulus, emas
culated Egyptians, naked Nubians,
and Niam-Niams from the Soudanese
deserts; and this is all. At
this moment with over 600 armed vessels on
the seas, with some 200,000 available troops
in India, a half million at home which may
be called into immediate active service, and
200,000 regular troops on foreign service,
making in all, according to the official re
ports an army of some 700,000 men v.

without delay, Great Britain is in a state of
ludicrous terror over a possible invasion, and
is proposing a vast line of coast fortifications
and internal defences.

NEW JERSEY JEFFERSONIANS.
On the 15th inst. the New Jersey Jeffer
souians held a largely attended and enthu
siastic meeting in the Academy of Music at
Newark. Cheers were given for Mr. Tilden
when,the following letter from him was read:
New York, April 15, 188-4.—Concurring cor
dially in your wish to render the grateful hi
of 55,000,000 of people to the illustrious political
philosopher and exemplar of administrative re
form, Thomas Jefferson, I regret that 1 cannot be
possibly present at your festival this evening.
S. J. Tilden.
A letter was also read' from Congressman
Perry Belmont, as well as letters and tele
grams of regret for absence of a number of
distinguished gentlemen, from Ex-Governors
Bodie, Parker, Curtin, Hendricks and
others, and speeches were made by Gov
Abhel, Senator Jones, of Florida; Senator
Colquitt, of Georgia, and ethers. In Mr.
Belmont's letter was a sentence that is a
"The whole art of government." Wrol
Belmont, "according to Thomas Jefferson, is the
art of being honest. If this is correct, then it is
a lost art in this country, and unless the Demo
crats can find it, it is gone, und the hope of re
ion is the hope of a Democratic triumph."
Mr. Belmont is one of the soundest young
Democrats In the country, but he has never
called on himself to he candidate for pres
ident, which shows what a scensible man he
Senator Plumb of Kansas thinks Blame's
nomination on the first bailot grows more
probable every day, but it might be found if
Plumb were himself the manager of the
Blame convention it would get a great upset.
Yet strange enough, a letter written by a Cti
ca Republican to a Washington gentleman,
quotes Senator Conkling as declaring that
Blame is the most available candidate the
Republican party has at its disposal.
Over against .these doctrinaires, is Con
gressman Henderson, secretery of the Re
publican Congressional Committee, who says
ie cannot be nominated for the reason
that he has no strength in the Southern
states; that he has not in the East, except in
Main c, and that elsewhere he has about the
same showing that he had in 1576 and in
ISSO. Mr. Henderson's notion is that
Blame and Grant are an offset, and will kill
each other off. Having told what won't hap
pen, Mr. Henderson, like a good prophet,
tells what will happen, and that either Lin
coln or Arthur or Logan will bo taken
as a compromise of the factions. But,
although Mr. Henderson has taken
some range he has not got the
name of the winning nominee in his list.
This much Mr. Henderson and his friends
may depend on, that if Blame is not nomi
noted it will be a dark horse, None of the
old machine Lacks can get there.

The statue of John Harvard, founder of Har

bridge. Mi. French, the Concord sculptor, h s
prepared a figure of heroic size, representing the
young divine in a sitting position, with an acad
emic gown falling loosely from his shoulders and
a book in his hand. The sculptor's task was
greatly simplified by the opportunity to make a
face altogether ideal, as hio portrait of Harvard
has ever been found and only the merest outline
of a description. He was graduated at Cam
bridge university, England, about IG3O, came to
this country a few years later and was settled
over a church at Charlustown, where he died in

partly because a suitable man would refuse to
