Wi: iiAvu already spokon of tho flsh exhibit nt the Cincinnati Exposition ns forming ono or its moat instructive and edifying fonturcs. No loss so is tho dis play of birds from tlio Nutionnl Mu sown, comprising a collection of about flvo hundred spoctufl, prepared under tho personal supervision of Mr. Ilobort Kidgoway, (ho curator of tho ornitho logical department of tho Museum, and arranged in such a manner ns to convey at a glauco an intelligible idea of their nature, class! flaition and local habita tion. Jlcro wo find another apt and Interest hip: suggestion of the valuable aid which the Government will bo nblo to render to tho proposed Zoological Gardens at Wash ington. It has in its present resources tho nucleus of a magnificent collection, to which additions nro constantly being iiuulo, and which, with comparatively small expenditure, may bo mndo to excel any of tho similar collections of tho Old World. Tho inilucnco which they are calculated to exert in tho cause of popular education cannot bo overestimated. Wo seo abundant evidences of it at tho Cincin nati Centennial, where none of tho ex hibits cxclto rnoio goncrnl interest than those which have- been wisely furnished by tho Government. Our legislators at tho Capitol should find in this fact alouo incentives to the. caily adoption of meas ures looking not only to tho establish ment of the Zoological Park, but to tho inauguration of a Permanent Exposition of all tho aitsand sciences and inventions of tho country. GOVMINOH GltAY of Indiana lias an opportunity now ho never had before tho extermination of tho "Whito Cap" organizations that havo brought so much disgraco on his State Tho main tenance of tho supremacy of the law over all oath-bound combinations against its proper administration is a grand object, and tho Governor will bo supported by nil good citizens' in tho mission ho hns undertaken. "" Wait till wk out into tho midst of tho .campaign; things will probably bo livelier then. Wo aro just now in the humidst of it. As to executions iiY olcctrlclty in Now York there aro several important questions to consider boforo tho law goes into effect questions that tho statesmen who enacted the law evidently know lit tlo about. Ono is the application of tho electric force to tho condemned person in such a manner asuot to produce muti lation of the body while producing death. Another and still graver point is its ap plication in such a way as to produco cer tainty of death. So many cases aro cited whero peoplo havo been apparently struck dead by lightning only to bo re suscitated afterward, or recover con sciousness by natural effort, that tho necessity of a process which shall re move nil doubts as to tho annihila 'tlon of tho vital spark becomes nt onco apparent. A method of exe cution that should onnblo tho friends of tho deceased to rcstoro him to life after thu forma of law had been complied with would, of course, bo ob jectionable, whilothe possibility of com mitting an executed criminal to his last resting place before lifo was roallv ex tinct involves horrors from which retri butivo jubtico, even in its stoniest forms, must instinclivoly shrink. Whcthor tho difllcultios suggested can bo overcomo in time to permit of tho enforcement of tho new law by tho 1st of January noxt is a matter of considernblo uncertainty. Tin: fourteenth Mexican Congress will meet noxt month, and bu composed of 22S moinbors, a much largor number in proportion to papulation than tho membership of the American Congress. To auDtiii my this quantity and quality of tho campaign poetry that Is forcing It self Into circulation just now, this may bo called tho ago of the political muse tho rampage, as it were. A dispatch viioM Pnrnnsiimta to tho Philadelphia 1'rcm states that Mr. Fred erick Douglass has written a long letter to a friend in tho Fourth district of Vir ginia, giving reasons why tho eolgred voters of that district should not support Piofoseor John M. Iingston for Con giess. Ho says: Tim nomination of Langtton ought not to bo made, and liU Insolent announcement of hi detunnlnstlon to foico Ids nomination by threatening thu Republican party with divisions by tunning for Congress with, or without tho consent of that natty, fairly plucos him boyond thu palo ol Hopubllottu mipnort. It wilt, occur to many persons who havo wntehoil the orratle and eventful career of tho distinguished John L. Sulli van for the past fow months that ho Is coaching hluiiolf for a sound thrashing nt no distant day. Tub Society i'ou the Provontion of Cruelty to Anhnnls in Now York is con sidering a proposition insula by Harold P Brown to fnrnihh upptuulus for tho killing of dogs by electricity. At present the old and barbaric system of ilruwiilug ill" poor brutes i- in vw-uo. Hire In WttaUiuatoii wo undciutuud they aro shot Instead of being diowncd, which is num barbaric still. H is time that sue li l Hindu - on mir ivilljsatldn tfuro rubbed out. Seiuanj, winch hag ftceomplislipil so much toward the rolluf of lmmau nut fcrlng, should certainly bo able to devise soino mentis slioit of prolongod torture for putting dogs to donth. Tim max aobmknt nt Ocean Grove, N. J., in an excess of aoftl for tho moral welfare of their patrons, havo issued on edict, prohibiting alwohitoly tho sale of all works of fiction at thai pious sumnirr rosort. President Stokes of tho Ocean Grovo Association has decided that all novels nro improper books nud that the tnilllc in tlioso wiles of tho satanle ad versary mull cease. Whether this ordor will bo followed by another, per omptorlly oxcludlng all guosts who in dulge in tho perusal of novels nud con fiscating such works of this charactor as may bo found in their possession, ic mains to bo scon. It would bo quite us Konsible an order as tho other, but 3Ir. Stokos will probably not permit ills ploty to so far outrun his worldly wisdom as to adopt any f urthor measures for tho depopulation of hit) hotels. Oim Hepubmcan friends aro up in arms now against tho "beastly cartoons" of Thomas Nast. A fow years ngo, when this famous artist was loasting Horace Grcoly and 31. Grata Ilrown to slow death by caricatures, of which the pungency amounted to absolute cruelty, tho ltopublicans canonized him as a saint. Hut it is somebody clso's ox that Is being gored now. In ins speech nt Charleston, W. Vn., Saturday, Mr. Mills expressed hinisolf ns being "ashamed to confess" how small tho reduction of taxation is under the Tnrlir bill which has passed tho Houso. "It is only,'' ho said, "from 47.10 on tho $100 to -12.10 on tho $100." Then ho wanted to know if that was "freo trado?" It certainly is not. No party is in favor of freo trade, and both parties are in favor of reducing tho sur plus. It is utter nonsonso to supposo that flvo million voters in tho United States aro in favor of a policy that shall ruin tho industries of their own coun try and flood it with tho pauper labor of Europe. Instead of trying to arguo away tho chargo of being u free trade party by n niultitudo of statistical fig ures, why do not tho Democratic orators universally press homo tho bare-faced absurdity of tho proposition? Tho chargo should fall on its own demerits. " . ...... Twenty-five years ago John McCuno landed at Castle Garden from Ireland with seareoly a dollar in his pocket. Hut ho "struck oil," and is now worth ?10,00l),000. John's oxcoptional case, however, can hardly bo used as a gen ornlarguinent in favor of encouraging tho importation of pauper labor. Gr.Nr.iiAi, IlAiuusoN wilt go a-flshlng on Lako Kilo to-muirow. This will give his much-shaken hands n ohauco to rost. Now York Press. What is ho going to do with his hands whou he goes a-flshing? If Blaine, llnubuu, and Morion aro elected, with what case, despatch, and rudo piopulslvo forco will tho 100.000 Dotno crnl.s who nro now bitting Himply In tho places of bounced Hcpubllcnna be run out, because) their places mo wunled for licuub llcnui And llnu Is tho Muislblo, Urn tradi tional American, tho rleht rulo for Iho ..pajno of polltlcM.
