It will be rwwiwhwwi that Mr. MM, eastfrmati of tbe noma CwumtttM tm Foreign Affairs, stated on tto floor la respotts to an Inquiry that ia Stata Department w ready to n1fmbllc 1 he correspondence. When thae passed, bowever, ami the cot rpen4ene remained withheld, Um re past went oat that Mr. Iilalne had tie tJteit N pWIh the correspondence but that tbe lKsideiit bad snubbed him nftwie. It wm ereti explained, with ntee attention to detail, that the I'reet deal's motive in Oils was his tin willing Men to let Mr. Blaine make a favorable Impression on Ike cmmlry thrntttth the medium of Ike Debtlng ?ea affair. It Ik tinted bow, however, that the cor ictpfledeirce wm gnnptetsed out of def tenw to the British Government. The night alter Mr. Hilt's statement, the lltllfeh Under ."ecretary of Foreisra Affairs announced In the Hoitse of CnmmMs that the Government was not ready t make the facts public, ami It Is Mewred here that our own Department acted on that hint In discrediting Mr. lllMaad denying the petition of Con jjtw. If thh he true, It is a confirmation of the moat unpleasant sustestlon In the w 11 e episode tbe suggestion that llnclaml Is having her own way la oery thing connected with it. One would SHppose that the Harrison Ad ministration l carrying load enough already without this additional odium. With its blundering Tarill Mil, lis In famous Kleetlon bill, Its wicked waste and extravagance, lis scnmhls In th Intirlvr Department, ami lis looted Tieaeury, It might at least spire the rMBUy the humiliation of allowing Knglattd to dictate to u In matters of 1 or rm n property and conduct.

It Is the boast of British oraeers that those thine. aMcd by the natnral dtMr-nltres of access, make Bermuda Impregnable. WhT. aaks the Boston Jonrml, has England expended all this money on a mth Insignificant, rocky group of Islets not in the ocean, hnndffeds of Srtlea rt moved from any other English ie8tIons of sny conseq iience? why acts she maintain an English gardens Iwtre and make it a place of resort for her battle ships' The commercial vahro r.f the Ulands to Great Britnln Is Ifrtmnshrerable, almost all of their trade hi with ihe 1'nlted States. There can only be one answer to this nuestlon. Englsml maintains her hold on Bermuda mertly as a point of naval and military vantage from which In an emergency she coaM menace Hew Yorfc. the Dela ware, Chesapeake Bay, Charleston ami Savannah the entire Eastern stretch of onr Amctlcan coast This very month a submarine cable Is twins: lam to connect Bermmia with Halifax, under a heavy snlwhly from the British Gov ernment. While onr twn authorities arelndlf fetent or Implicitly relying on our "common otlsln" and the after-dinner talk about "'Anglo !a.von fraternity" to prctetve filcmlly relations, Ruglaml Is conducting affairs In Bermuda as If any day might btlng a declaration of war. No other Interpretation can be put upon llio atmament ami naval arsenal which England has for many years maintained upon these Hands than that tliey are Intended lo "hold a plsiol to the head" of the United Slates. If England values Ibe friendship and good will of Ger many sufficiently to surrender Heligo land, one of her outposts, ought she not In consistency surrender Bermuda tons? Such a proposition. If properly put to Lord Salisbury, might alTord an admi rable chance to test tbe sincerity of English professions of consideration for America. A DANDY POSTMASTER.

When Thomas Richardson, colored, wsb appointed postmaster at Port Gibson, Miss., by Mr. Wanamakcr, he wrote a letter to the Jackson, Miss., Clarion ledger, from which the follow ing extracts are made: "I now give notice, through your paper, that the present Democratic lneumbent will soon have to step down nml out, and I will show her no more courtesy than she did roe when I had to turn the office over to her undir Cleveland's short ami wicked rulu.

How lie Wai Taken from a DUhoaest Merchant' Ilmploy, A gentleman from tho country placed his son with a dry goods merchant ia street. or a time all went oa well. At length a lady came to the store to purchase a silk dress, and the young man waited upon her. Tbe price de manded was s greed to, and be proceeded to fold the goods He discovered, be fore he had finished, a flaw in the silk, and pointing It out to the lady, said: "Madam, I deem It my duty to tell you there Is a fracture in tne siik." Of course she did not take it. The merchant overheard the remark, says the New York Ltdgtr, awl im mediately wrote to the father of tbe young man to come and take him home, "for." said be, "he will never make a laerehanL" Tbe father, who bad ever reposed confidence in bis son, was much eiieved and hastened to tbe city to be informed of bis dt Aeieoeke. "Why will be not make a merchant?" asked he. "Because he has bo tact," was tbe answer. "Only a dsy or two ago he told a lady, voluntarily, who was buy ing silk of him. that the goods were damaged, aad 1 lost a bargain. Pur chasers must look out for Ibamselves.
