They unite In the declaration that tm cneh measure Is needed, ami any that, en the contrary. It will be exceed ingly detrimental to their Interests. "Walts BepnbKcans have spoken In Louisiana, the two Caroltnas, Alabama, atJasleslppI, Tennessee and Virginia. To be sure the bill has advocate among the Washington negroes, these advocates being for the greater part residents of this city and the locum bents of certain petty offices In the De partments. Even If they had opinions on the subject they would hardly de clare them honestly, It being profitable to them to approve of everything tbslr hOMc-s and superiors may do. They cannot vote here; they will certainly not go South to vote. Their Indorse ment represents nothing that an Intelli gent ami patriotic Congressman ought to consider for one single Instant. How, then, does the Force bill stand? In cur opinion, It stands witho.it one vadd ixnalderntlon In its favor, and with lett Urgent and responsible opinion (He- puLiban and Democratic, cohred as t!l anile) arrayed against It In the Miyetlnn frhoe pence and wei isre Its authors say It was designed.

I0W THE REPEAL OF TBI CORK LAWS ABOLISHED PROTECTION iMvorwrt at itst, Att vent t .mm ontsm by Sir Mewett I" A Otrap ft rMfl KMttSrt MMWWr. Tn policy of Great Britain prior to P4 bad been rigidly protective, with tefcteBrB to almost every article which, wmlrt be pvwlttcetl ia the cottirtfy by y process short of hot honw plant Ihf, The corn laws were practically ptohlWtory, especially in years of rlronth; and the masses of the people weta often upon the verge of states iron. A historian of the times states that wheat rose to 108s. per fpiarter of eight bushels in December, Ittrt. lo 104s. in Jannary, 1S17, and to ll!K SI. in .Inne of that year. These figure, It ibay bf remarkwl, represent, respect Iwly, 3 19, t8.15ml4I per bushel. Popular distress was so great that dsn pioiis rlota enstfcd, awl Parliament hart to be protected by the soldiery against the mob. But it was not until 183S that the antl corn law league was formed, and It may be regarded as tbe first practical fruit of the Parliament Iletorm bill, which became a law In 1832. The Leaene demanded the total repeal of the corn law. The Whins were In power, under iMelbourne. But neither of the great parties, Whig and Tory, favored repeal. The aeitntlon went forward and gntl.ered strength, and In 1911. In behalf of the Whfg Admlnls (ration, Lord John Httssel gave notice In the House of Commons that on May 30 he would move "That the House resolve itself Into a committee of the whole House to consider the act relat ing to the trade In corn." Some days later he explained the natnte of the changes he proposed to malte lu the corn laws. He would abolish, bv bts measure, the sliding scale, by which the tax on the quarter of wheat was raised In nrotmrtion as the nrlce fell. and rice ttrm, anil substitute In Its place a vxtroitM ntrrr on whkat of 8s. per quarter of eight bushed, is Od. on barley, and 3s. Id. on oats. It failed to pleaso Tories or free-traders the former denounced It as confiscation, while tbe latter would listen to noth ing short of total repeal. The Whig Administration brought forward this, with other Important con cessions to the Free-Trade party. Thev proposed other reductions In the taxes with the avowed purpose of Increasing the revenue by Increased Importations. Hut they were defeated In the Com mons, and after a vote of want of con fidence, which was passed by one ma jority, they resigned and appealed to tbe country. In the new " election which followed the Tories, with Sir Ilobftl Piel nt their hend, were suc cessful. Peel went Into olllco as head or the new Tory Ministry In September, 1841, but It was not until IS 12 that bis rlnan clal policy ea announced. As re faidtd the Importation of grain he pro no td a modlncaticn of the ilMlnor scale. The aim of the corn law had been to keep up the price of wheat it about 8s. 8d. per quarter, which is etfulvalent to $2.03 per bushel. Peel proposed to reduce tbe duly to about one half the old ratus; that Is to say. In place of a duty of 27s. Sd. the quarter, when the natural price was 50s., be pro posed to make the duty lils., ami when the price fell to 50s. he proposed to substitute 20s. In place of the existing duty of 36s. 6d , and so on. But these reductions "were far from satisfying the Anti-Corn Law Leaeua. the clamor for repeal grew louder and stionger; and tbe Whigs, now out of power, Joined In tbe demand for repeal. Peel, who waa believed to have shown signs of misgiving on the subject, even before the election, now gradually, but rapidly developed Into a friend at re peal, and of free trade. With the am bition of a mere politician he held also tbe more elevated principles of a states man. On coming Into power be gave utterance to tbe following noble senti ment. He said: "If you ask me whether I bind myself to the mainte nance of the existing (com) law In Its details, or If you say that this is the condition on which the agri cultural Interest give me their support, I say that on that condition I will not accept thtlr support. If I ac cept office, it shall be by walking In the open light snd In tbe direct paths of the constitution. If I exercise power, it shall be upon my conception perhaps Impel feet, perhaps mistaken, but my sincere conception of puWIe duty. That power I will not bold unless I ean bold it consistently with the mainte nance of my own eplaloM." Ia order to lighten tbe burden of the taxes oa eommeree he made AN IKCOMB TAX A TAUT OS" HIS PLAN. This measure encountered tbe opposi tion of ihe Whigs, but he carried it by 1 be next step In the direction of free trade was a reduction of duties oa 736 articles imported from abroad. On this occasion be avowed binseelf a free trader, and that tbe principle akoatU be carried out prudently, "wttk as small an amount of Individual angering as was compatible tiik a regard for tbe public good." ' I believe," be said, "that oa use general principle of free trade there U now no great differ ease of opinio, and that all agree in the general rule that we should purchase ia tbe cheapest market and sell in tbe dearest The example of rlagbtnd would ensure tbe general application of just pried pies with beaatu to herself and to those who were wit enough to follow." But Sir Hubert still held uut against repeal, while gradually adopting a folky of free trade. Taera em be but trie doubt that be saw the Impending necessity for repeal, but was hebl back by his Tory colleagues. Toe failure at the potato crop La Ireland ia 1643 added tenfold force to tuts feeling ia favor of repeal Famine stared tnlatert ia Use face.

" The annouocerrrent of tbe rimes was premature, although It had the fact of a large section of Iks Ministry la Ha favor for Its foundation. Falling to carry a majority of his colleagues, Bit Robert Peel rt Mencd The Queen summoned Lord John Kttsell to take the place of first Mtnlner. The Whlgj were In a minority of 300, and Lord John reluct antly complied. The Qneen then showed him a letter from Stt Itobeft pledging his "upport In measures for the settlement ot the corn law. But Lord Jobn failed to form a Cabi net, and abamioned the attempt Sir Hobert Peel was again summoned try tht Queen and asked to withdraw his resignation. He did so. and entered upon Ihe dnlles of Prime Minister with renewed strength. This was in Dicem ber, 1345 Lord Stanlev an Inveterate Tory, withdrew, and William K. Glad stone took bis place. Ills other former colleagues, who consented to return to power under the circumstances, gave the tacit assurance that they were to sustain their leader In the policy fot which be hail surrendered office, and on the condition of adhering to which he consented to resume office. Parliament met In January, 116. The Queen's speech referred to the failure of the potato crop In Ireland, ami to measures "for enlarging our commercial intercourse." Sir iTobert j-eei. in tne course of the tleuete on tbe address to the Queen, referred to tbe potato crop failure In Ireland as giving urgency to the demand for modi fying tbe corn laws; bntodded: "I will not asstsn to that cause too much weight. I will not withhold the hrmage which Is due to the progress of reason and truth, by denying that my opinions on the subject "of protection have undergone tt change. It may be supposed that there Is something hu miliating In making such admissions; I feel no such humiliation. I should feel humiliated If, having modified or changed my opinion, I declined to ac knowledge tbe change, for fear of In curring the Imputation of Incon sistency." Tbe chareo of Disraeli, on the occa sion that rr.EI, HAD 1IKT1UVKU lit VAIITY, was as groundless as It was malignant; since, wbeu tbe party failed to sustain him, he resigned; and, when he again took office, they voluntarily followed him as their acknowledged leader. It was on the 27th of January, 1S-10, that Sir llobcrt Peel announced his policy. It was a complete abandonment of the protective policy, not only with reference to grain, but to everything. In place of the sliding scale, as to corn (grain), be proposed a temporary duty of 10s. per quarter on wheat when the the price was In-low 4t per quarter, and the duly wtt to lie lowered one shilling with every rise of one shilling. But this arrangement was to last for three jcais only, after which be pro posed a total r pcsl of the corn laws, together with the duties on most foreign mntiUtncturcd articles. The debate on the Mil inn tbrugb twelve nights, dur Ing which 103 speeches were made, IS In favor of free trade, and 53 for pro tectlon. Lord John Ilussell supported i nc out, uut satu ue wouiu uare pre ferred immediate repeal. Peel was bit terly assailed by the Protectionists, but was consoled by the defense of such noble spirits ns Jobn Bright, who said: "I watched tbe Bight Houorablrt Baronet go home last night, and I confess I en vied him tbe ennobling feelings which must have filled his breast after deliver ing bit speech a speech, I venture to say, more powerful nnd more to be ad mired than any speech ever heard In this Houe within the memory of any ruaulnll." A motion to postjione the considera tion of the bill for sl months failed, by yeas 3-10, nays 337. ami the bill was finally passed In the Commons, May 15, by veas 827. nays 390. Tbe bill was passed In the House of Lords, June 25, and received tbe Itoyal assent. And thus ended protection in Great Britain, since which time that country lias prospered as never before, while wages have risen, and her public debt bas been gradually reduced In amouut. as the country bas grown two-fold more able to bear tbe burden. In this country we have no Irish famine to precipitate the overthrow of tbe Incubus of protection, but we have half the land mortgaged to capitalists and MILLIONS OF LAHOKEB STKtKINU beeause they are not paid living wanes by tbe manufacturing monopolists, or tramping tbe country In search of work at almost any pr lee, Danikl It, Gooolok.

The K-T'Ohnnrelnr (Irnnml n ll.irrol OrRBn for tho Trlncen. An amusing story of Tilsmarck Is to the effect that shortly before his retire ment from office he was passing through the royal palace nt Derlln, when he en tered a room In which the young princes were merrily romping and dancing to the music of a barrel organ, says the Ilradford itow. The youngsters Insisted that Prince Wsmarck should stay and dance with them. "I am too old," said tbe stiff anil stately septuagenarian, "and really I cannot dance, but If tbe Crown Prince will dance I will grind the organ." The bargain was at once struck. The Crown Prince Joined his two brothers, and Prince Ilumarch ground away merrily at the organ while the children danced on In high glee. In the midst of their mirth the door opened nnd the young Kaiser entered, lie smiled to see thu redoubtable reicbekanzler urlndlng the barrel organ, and, after a word of greeting to his sons, he observed In mock displeasure to Prince Bismarck: "You begin in good time to make tbe heir apparent dance to your piping.

This may be tjulte shokim to you, but the surgeon whs rather gla 1 to see It, bucsuse gangrene and blool poisoning were not likely to folio v In wound that bad been cleansed v na lure's faithful surgeons. At tbe battle of Kenesnw Mauntalna'tho faces of some of tbe dead and wounded had tbe ap pearance of being covered wllh snow white froth, so active had been the blue bottle In depositing larva1. They were no cowards, neither, but worked right along through the thickest of the tight. a Thoughts It is safe to assert that there isn't a day passes but hundreds ol dollars, to say the least, are expended in this city for furniture and house decorations. If not expended judiciously, then poorly spent, and if not disbursed in the light of all possible economy then not expended judiciously. The papers contain daily coun sel of the best prudence, and this house is among the rest in saving suggestions." But it takes much and fre quent argument to influence some minds and often the most lorclble kind of logic. Yet sometimes a gentle hint will kindle productive re flection, and that is the hint we here aim to impart. Worth a thought ? Yes, it is worth a long, large thought that whether you are buying strictly season able goods, sueh as Baby Carriages, Refrigerators, Water Coolers, Bed Cano. pies, Lace Curtains, Gauze Hangings, &c, or whether you would be induced te invest in Furniture, Car pets, Rugs. Tapestries, Por tieres and so forth and so Qa, provided there were ample coaskleratioits of prices.
