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

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.

Tub Society i'ou the Provontion of

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

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.

with seareoly a dollar in his pocket.

Did Washington I.nugli ?
It has bcon observed that Washington sel
dom smiled nud novcr laughed, 'this, how
ever, Is not correct. Ono Instnnco Is men

veracity. At tho tltno tho troops wcro en
camped at Cambridge, Information was ro
celved nt headquarters that tho English wcro
about leaving llostou to glvo them battle.
All was bustlo nnd confusion, , Tlio 60ldiera

for their horses, und others for their arms; and
among tho rest was (Jonerul Greene, nttho
bottom of tho stairs, bawling to tho harbor for
his wig. "Jlrlng my wig, you rascal,
bring my wig." Gcnoral Leo dfveited him
self and tho rest of tho company nt tho ex
pense of Grccno. "Your wig is behind tho
looking-glass, Blr." At which Greene, raising
Ids eyes, pcicetvcd by tho mirror, that tho wig
was whero It should be ou his head. Wash
