18G0, the Democratic tariff and by
that we mean a tariff imposed by a
Democratic Congress never exceeded
fifteen per cent. At that time the
leading manufacturers were exporting
values equaling thirty millions in gold.
Ten years later under a Republican
tariff of forty-five per cent., the ex
portation was considerably less than
twenty-seven millions. The actual
figures are not at hand, but it was a
falling off of over two and a half mil
lions of dollars or seven and a half
percent. Under the Radical policy
of taxation, our foreign exports of all
kinds, not counting bullion, has been
double the ratio of an increase in pop
ulation. Of these the manufactured
articles form but an insignificant part,
and what is worse they are constantly
diminishing. In other words, the ex
ports of unprotected articles have
doubled while the exports of protected
articles are absolutely insignificant;
and it is going on from bad to worse.
These figures, or rather estimates (and
they will not be found greatly, if at
all, at variance with the figures) show
that protection doesn't even protect.
On the contrary, they present an un
answerable argument in favor of the
wise, old Democratic theory of free
trade, modified to a tariff for revenue
odIv. Until this idea is put in the
form of practical legislation, there?
will be no prosperity in any part of j
the country. j

holders of our bonds, in what they
could easily perceive was vital to the
future of Sedalia. It became as appa

the city could not be defrayed with an
annual interest of twenty-six thousand
dollars to be paid from our revenues.

are a disgrace to any civilized
community; our crossuags are
dangerous to life and limb, and
the simplest and most necessary under

required to be abandoned on account of

aid in preparing the way for a Ropubli

his Southern policy and his civil ser
vice reform. He could never have
supposed that cither of these measures
would command the approval of Rid
ieal politicians. The first practically
destroyed the Republican party in the
South. The second deprives the party
in the North of its most effective aux
iliary. It is no wonder that Senators
and Representatives in Congress, who
were anticipating great things from
the new President are disappointed in
the result. They expected to he in
vited to a feast and find only husks.
There is a splendid sense of retribution
iu all this which is inexpressibly
charming to the Democratic eye.

break open the pantry and smash the
crockery to their heart's content. It
is no concern of our's. Nevertheless,
when it comes to a square fight le
tween the administration and the dis
appointed artians, the Democrats are
all on the side of the President. He's
a fraud certainly ; but then he's doing
the best he can to make a silk purse
oul of a sow's ear, and he has done a
good thing for the country. In one
sense he is splendidly illustrating the
courage of a damaged reputation. He
wants to show 'the country that no
matter how he came by the office, he
is not insensible to the vast responsi
bilities of the high position, and that
he is capable of a patriotism which,
wheu brought to the test of duty is
capable of great achievements. To
this end Mr. Hayes has the heartv
sympathy of the Democratic party
and indeed of everv right minded man
in the Union. "Even honest partisans

Which does the honest sentiment of
the country. say is the true representa
tives? Can any man say the knavish
adventurer, saturated with corruption,
branded from one end of the Union
to the other as a liar, a thief and pol
troon is a fitting representative of the
honesty, intelligence and purity of a
sovereign State. Weighed in the
balance with SacJord, the courtly gen
tleman, the finished scholar, the able
lawyer, to which aide woald the scale
incline ? Lewis, the son testaat of Eustis,
a few yean ago, discharged the states
manlike daties of a negro porter in a
gambling bonse in New Orleans. His
education was obtained ia the slams,
and he gees to Washington reeking
with tat tier ef the sinks. This
is the man whom the Itepubli-
can party of Louisiana have pitted
against one of the ablest and most dis
tinguished representative gentlemen of
the South. And yet the Senate's com
mittee on privileges and elections is
unable to determine which two of
these four men Louisiana tnosL desires
should be her Senators. Was there
ever an instance of more shameless
and degrading political partisanship?
One thing, however, must be said to
the credit of Kellogg and Lewis. They
are true types of their party in the
South. Nothing can be said c them
so mean, as to be unjiit to the
Republicans of Louisiana. They
are birds of lhe same plumage
feathers plucked from the same wing ;
and while Spoffbrd and Eustis repre

THK KANKKUIT LAW.
S:. Iui K-:iMicnti.
Senator McCreerv s bill for the re-
hieal of the bankrupt law proposes to re-
pcal it absolutely, with the simple con
dition that ail bankrupt cases 'tending
in the I'.S. courts district since October
20.1877, shall he tried and determined
under the law as it exists. What op
position there is to the repeal of the
act comes from those who think that
some bankrupt law is necessary, and
that it would be better to amend and
improve tne present one than to
abolish it entirely. They argue also
that the evil effects of the existing law
are nearly exhausted with the crop of
bankruptcies committed to it by the
collapse of 1873. The majority of sol
vent business men, however, state
that all efforts to amend the law have
failed through the opposition of the
officials who reap such large fees from
it, that there is no choice between its
utter repeal and continued subjection
to the expensive processes and frauds
that are permissible under it.

upon me through reflating my own
name to myself silently, till all at once
as it were, out of the intensity of the
consciousness of individuality the in
dividuality itself seemed to dissolve
and fade away into lioundless being
and this not a confused state, but the
clearest of the clearest, the surest of
the surest, utterly lievond words
whose death was an almost laughable
impossibility the hws of iiersonality
(if so it were) seeming no extinction
but only true life.
I am ashamed of my feeble descrip
tion. Have I not said the state is be
yond word? But in a moment, when
I came back iatomy normal condition
of sanity, I am ready to fight tor
"Mein Liebes Ich," and hold that it
will last for neons of aeons.
In "Lucretius," "What is Duty?"
was the first reading. It was altered
because Lucretius nowhere, I think,
makes mention of duty in that sense ;
but it now stands again as at first.
If ever you come over to Fngland
I shall he glad to welcome you here.
Believe me, yours very truly.
