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

on the subject they would hardly de
clare them honestly, It being profitable
to them to approve of everything tbslr

cannot vote here; they will certainly
not go South to vote. Their Indorse

to consider for one single Instant.
How, then, does the Force bill stand?

I0W THE REPEAL OF TBI CORK LAWS
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
' I believe," be said, "that oa use

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

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
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

DANCED TO BISMARCK'S MOStC.
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
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
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.
Why, tills is tbe fourth generation of
IIohen7ollorDS to whom you devote
I'lle on ttio llnttlofleld.
from Mr ltt4bttt CemmtreUd Uautli.
Where do the files come from? That
Is what the soldiers used to say in the
army. Before the smoke of Initio was
fairly cleared away tbe wounds of many
of the men would be covered with II v
maggots. 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.
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.
