The attitude assume! by a part of the
French press toward the English opera
tions in K'ypt ia meat perverse and unrea
sonable. England has taken possession o
the Suez Canal because it wa» absolutely
necessary to do so in order tj carry on th
campaign against Arabi. Of course i
does not follow that ehe will henceforwan
control the caoal, though if she did sh
could unquestionably show a better title
to such control tban any other power. Fo
while eighty-five per cent, of all the vee
sels passing through it carry the Britis i
flag, so the interests of England in th
Im-i. far exceed in magnitude thgsc of an '
other Karope&n Government. It has indee<
been said that Kuesia and France both hay
Kutern interests also, but they are trirlin
compared to thoae of Great Britain, and i
it becomes a question us to which of the
great pawers sh*U control the canal, it
certain that France cannot bring any valid
argument against an Knglish protectorate.
It is moreover <|uitc apparent now that
some of the Kuropean powers will hence
forth have to protect the canal, either
singly or jointly, for it has been effectually
demonstrated that the K:>yptian Govern
ment possesses neither the stability nor the
p-jwer to do so. But the present com
plaints of the French papers are the more
foolish because it ia notorious that Glad
stone did not wish to take any action in
Egypt unless France would co-operate, and
because it ia equally notorious that Kog
land was compelled to undertake the work
single-handed through the unexpected with
drawal of France at the most critical junc
If the policy of the I>; Freycinet min
istry had been carried out, France would
now have been co operating with England
in the Delta ; but the French Legislature
refused to indorse that policy, and however
foolish this conclusion may have been, it
must be presumed to be the expression of
the nation. France, therefore, withdrew
from all participation in the Egyptian busi
ness, and whatever advantages may accrue
to Kngland through her persistence, will
have been fully earned. The fact is, that
the Frencli Government has committed a
great blunder in this connection. A few
years ago the French inlluence in Egypt
was paramount, and up to the time of the
Alexandria massacre that Government had
kept fully abreast of England. But at that
poiut some domestic consideration - proba
bly in part a reaction from the Tunis af
fair, and in part a feeling of wast of confi
dence in the new army system—interfered
with the foreign policy of the country, and
resulted in the defeat of the De Freycinet
ministry, and the sudden retreat of the
French from the Egyptian operations. Up
to that moment it had no doubt been sup
posed in Kngland that the w! Ole proceed
ings would have been undertaken jointly.
The change threw a very grave and mo
mentous responsibility upon England. She
had not been prepared for a laud campaign.
Naturally she would have expected that
the French, possessing a great army, would
furnish the larger part of the land expedi
tion, while the naval work would priuci
pilly devolve upon herself.
But she was now called upon either to
follow the French example, and abandon
the whole enterprise, or to take the re
sponsibility solely upon herse'f. She
| could not do the first, sir^e it would not
only have discredited her fatally in Egypt,
but throughout the East. And such dis
credit might easily involve a second mu
tiny in Hindostan. The ruler of India
I is in fact compelled to maintain her mili
tary prestige at all hazards, and therefore
| there was no course but to advance.
France had left her ally in the lurcli, and
I had acted in a manner which would rightly
be considered \ cry shabby in a mon,.;jj r ,y i
but which cannot be resented i), a -enub
lic, because there is i'l1"r" > i^f7 .'_.]iu In il
responsibility. Hitt^ysgf.^^,. tbe E»m
campaign Kigland
| justly claimed the profits of it, and what-
I ever the French press may say, the world
will assuredly hold her entitled to them.
It is a rule as old as the human raoe that
the laborer ia worthy of his hire, and
when one power undertakes that which
several have declined to venture upon, the
one power will he justified in demanding
j and taking the lion's share ol' the ad-
I vantages.
The French paper* are probably at bot
I torn chagrined at the action of thuir own
I leginUtive body, but that does not justify
! them in accusing their late-ally of commit
ting a theft in taking possession of the
Suez Canal. We may be sure that if
France had consented to co-operate in
Egypt she would have found it necessary
to supersede the Canal Company for the
time being, and we may also be sure that
she would have done this without compunc
tion or hesitation. And she haa nobody
but herself to blame for the fact that
British instead of French soldiers are now
holding the canal. She would not have it
when it was almost thrust into her hands,
and now the probability ia that she cannot
get it. She has in fact lost her prestige in
Egypt and in the East by her inaction, and
her loss is England's gain. And now that
England has control of the canal it is not
likely that she will again run the risk of
having her communications with India in
terrupted. She may propose a joint pro
tectorate, or it may be forced upon her,
but if she is wise she will not lightly forego
her present vantage ground, and there is
no power in Europe at present that will
quarrel with her upon such &n issue.
The opportunity of France has been al
lowed to pass. That is her lookout, how
ever. She took the coarse which the
majority of her legislators thought tbe
safest, and now the only dignified course
for her is to abide by her own decision.
No person cau expect to obtain from
neutrality the tame advantages as from
active co-operation in an enterprise of this
kind. Kngland is doing all the work, and
she will claim and receive ncaily all the
wages. That is only fair, and France can
not seriously object to it. At all events
she should have thought twice about with
drawing if she really wanted to maintain
her prestige in the East. It is too late for
regret*, now that the die has been cast.
Egypt, in the ordinary course of events,
will go to Kngland henceforth, and France
must be content with Algeria and Tunis,
and her distant Annamese colony.
Tbe Supreme Court has decided that the j
Act of tbe Legislature which gave the I

advanced by the
jßteaJrieuca ; but
the organic i»w involved in the Act,
when it was introduced. The Directors
had fell waraiDg of the risk they ran io
taking this money. The Constitution pro
hibited them from receiving any salary.
Nevertheless, they took it, and now they
will brf called upon to pay it back into the
Treasury. We trust that this outcome
will be a lesion to Legislatures, also, not
to try to circumvent a perfectly plain and
unamttKUOus provision of the Constitu
tion ; and that it may convince office
seeker* of the danger of taking unaalaried
placet in the hope of squeezing salaries out
of then, by hook or by crook.
M. de I.essep9 appears to be getting
into troubled waters through bis very im
prudent leading toward the rebel Arabi.
His Uat freik U said to have been a
dinner with Arabi, and now it is reported
that a correspondence between the two
has been discovered, which very seriously*
compromises the hero of the Suez Canal.
M. de Lesseps is doubtless an enthusiast,
and his youth perhaps accouuts for his sin
gular impulsiveness ; but he ought to be
aware that in times of war people who are
found corresponding with the enemy, and
perhaps giving him valuable information,
are liable to be treated as spies, and even
if not led out and ahot by a platoon, ara
apt to be put in durance or Bent out of the
country. It is not to be supposed that Sir
(■arnct Wolacley would do anything rough
to his friend -M. de 1.-.sseps; but if he
tiuds him writing compromising letters to
| Arabi it will become his pain'ulduty to see
i that the correspondence is stopped, and
also probably to insist upon M. de Lesseps'
return to France. For clearly the protec
tion of the Suez Canal could not require
the maintenance of secret and underhand
relations with the commander of the rebel
forces, and if >!. de I.etssps does not realize
this it is his misfortune.
We see that the New York Tribute is as
skeptical as ourselves »s to the alleged Ala
bama negro conspiracy which was recently
made the pretext for lynching » prominent
colored man in that State. The more we
reflect upon the Btory the more convinced
do we become that there is not a word of
truth in the statement given to the public.
The atrong pretumptiun is that it really
means a revival of the villainous system of
force and intimidation which disgraced the
South for bo many years. Nobody who
knows anything about the negro will be
lieve that he is capable of conspiracy after
i this fashion. His character is in all re
{ spects averse from operations of the kind.
If he would conspire a little more he would
get on better at the South, but he allows
kimself to be controlled by white men who
are too often vulgar demagogues. In the
case under notice we have little doubt that
when the truth cornea out it will appear
that the m*n who was hanged had been an
inllaential scgro politician, and that his
influence was interfering with that of some
of the whisky-sodden blackguards who
think Ihe country belongs to them. We
j believu that all the conspiracy was on the
! side of these fellows, and that they have
I in fact established a terrorism over the
| colored people, and intend to use it for po
i litical (Sect. We trnst, however, that the
TribuiW and other Kiatern journals will at
once dispatch trustworthy corespondents
to the scene of action, and bring out all the
facts. Certainly it will not do to accept
the cock-and-bull story of a negro plot
which the murderers have put forward to
screen themselves.
'^ 9—-fJublish elsewhere the platform
adoptod by the Lake county Republicans.
It is wit long, but it contain? a good deal
of clear thinking. Special attention may

is fali to be ths moit important in the

we ate constantly receiving intimations
that the State Convention w expected to
speak with no uncertain sound upon it.
The Democratic position as delined by

abolished, aud thai freedom requires un
bounded license aud the elimination of

i publicans everywhere, while it is already

Republicans reflect the general sentiment

•■«'rnor Cornell's Mock Operation*.
New Yobk. August 23d.—The ejcciteinwit
iv p-iliti ■ ;1 circi»s over tbe so-called "revela
ti jus "' concerning Governor Cornell* atock
operations continues, and the uewxpapers,
especially the Herald, are <1 iue all they can
to exaggerate the matter. Governor Cornell
w»( an officer of the A. D. T. Company, and
according to the (statement took advantage of
his position to form & blind pool for the dis
posal of a large holding at the atock. Gov
ernor Cornell was cot alone in the scheme,
havicg associated with himself such men as
Gould, Ban Sydney Dillon, Galloway and
others, who largely control the atock market,
2nd can influence a stock either way they de
sire. The- men were to become responsible
for tbe stock, and share the profits of such
s*leß as Cornell might make, he having con
trol of the affair. It had become necessary
to make a sale of A. D. T. slock, aa a new
company was being organized, and the stock
of tae old one was likely to decline in pri'.e
in consequence ; therefore how to get rid i f
the «!d *:..!.-k at a fair profit was the question.
Governor Cornell organic <1 a blind pool, it is
stated, and capitalists, who * i course were
prompted to aid in the ccheme bsc.tuse of
their appreciation of the fact that they wore
likely to reap a rich harvest .-t profits as well
as would Cornell, came tv the front haad
-Mmely. The par value of the stcck was then
$25. It was quoted at $15. The price it
once went to $20, marked by the pool
at that point. This gave it the valu* per
share of $82, as stock U quoted on
'Change, ■ v a l^ is of $100 par.
When it got ioto the vicinity of S"'.\ the Gov
ernor is said to have unloaded and put ont a
';..-•■• lot of ahorts. Then tha new company
came up, and the A. I. T. dropped to $50, and
has rfaea gone nraci lower. How mnch the
Governor cleared by his short sales at $7!' is
not known, but he 1•. ii._r a pood financier, it
is tv be presumed fiat he cleared a handsome
return. One trouble, apparently, with the
associates of Governor Cornell ia the blind
pool is that they have not received their
share cf the protita iv the operation that they
believe beloaga to them; but Una ia not the
primary cause for the statements relative to
Cornel!. Hi- course towwdl the elevated
railroad tax billa, as well as his course in the
blind pool, are the chief reasons for the de
sire that U felt to kill off the Governor in hia
attempt to secure a renomination, The men
to do tnis are Jay Gould and Koecoe ''. mklin _.
Gould, because the refusal to lift the tax took
so much money out of his pocket, »n i Cookliog,
beciuse he ha* a eoore to sett'e with Cornell
for the latter's course in the Senatorial con
test a year ago. These two men, then, are
posing themselves ia front as the virtual di
rectors of the Hepublicina of New York
State. * i .ii'n i alao sees ahead, and no doubt
desires to have his potency felt in the choice
of the new Railroad Commission, which the
next Governor will name. Time considera
tions have much to do with hia present course.
It U more than likely, however, that the
rural voter?, who do not want to be cheated
with their eyes wide open, will take some
special ptiaa to elect delegates to tbe County
Conventions who fairly represent the senti
ment of their districts. So far the endeavors
to inj are Cornell's chances have not gone, it

Cincinnati, Auguat 23i — The Court

be foi warded to Washington.
Washington, August 23d.—Army officers
are quite excited over tbe Court-martial of
Colonel Tofsph Taylor, now being tried ia
Cincinnati for trying to bavn his orders re
| yoked thrcugh Concessional influence. Thia
! v connected with one of the greatest scin
dals at present in both the army and nayy—
namely, the use of political influence in de
termiuing the duty of military officers. Al
though army officers here iv charge of docu
meats are reasonably above the ordinary in
fluence whi:h politicians know very well how
to es-rt on one another, yet it is desirable
that the departments aboi'ld be on good terms
with Congress in order that they may i •
treated with comidsration in appropriation
bills and for other reasons. Therefore, when
a Congressman prefects a case to a detailed
ora'cer, he is not apt to give an attentive ear
to argument. Ia the present case Colonel
Taylor, who has a very pleasant place in the
; barracks at Xew V rk. haa been ordered to
Omaha. He had j-ut moved hi* family to
New York, and tbu change caused him some
inconvenience and expense. It was made,how
ever, to give Colonel Corbin a pleasant assign
ment. Colonel Corbin, whose fidelity to Gar
field in his late UlneM endeared him to the
nation, wu removed in the ordinary vicini
tudea of military duly from his position at
Washington, and he desired an airreeable
duty, causing the Department to assign him
to the Newport liarracks. This made all the
trouble. Perhaps in an ordinary case the
Department could have winked at the inter
ference cf a Congressman to beep Colonel
Taylor in hia placa, but Corbin a case made
the affair peculiar, aad the Department re
sented Congressional interference on Taylor's
behalf. Army offi xra think, howerrr, that
■he Cvart-martial will not condemn Taylor,
while the fact that one hn been ordered to
try thiii class of offense* will have, they
think, the effect of making officers more cau
tious in securing Cougresnional help to at*'\t.t
them in making a !;,'ht against the War De
|>artinent in the assignment of duty.

Secretary for Ireland, hw arrived at Belfast.
The Mayor presented him an address of wel
come, and exprc&fgd a desire that the resi

hU onerous dutl«s. Tr»velyan, in reply, said
it would be idle to deny the existecca of
persona' danger in the taak of governing Ire
land. The remedy ugainst outrages was to
have a tribunal which could he trusted to do
justice without fear. When the Irish r-eople
are convinced that they have a tribunal
which will givn a verdict according to the
«videnc». it will have an important *}f;ct.

Measuring from the cataract* o
Sayone, where the Nile enters Uppe
Egypt from Xubia, to the moat northerl
points. of the delta, or Lower Egyp
there are about 600 miles of country, th
settled population of which is peculiar]
dependent upon the great river for vex
existence, and every year swayed b
hopes or fears as the waters of th
streams are sufficient or scarce or too
abnndant. The welfare of the Egyptians
is, in truth, intimately bound up with
the annual recurrence of a natural
phenomenon known as the "Rising cf
the Nile." The river, issuing from a
valley a few miles north of Cairo, enters
the low, wide plain, which, from its re
semblance to the fourth letter of the Greek
alphabet, received from that people the
name of Delta. The stream divides itself
into two branches, that of Kosetta, or old
Canopic, and that of Damiat, or Phatnitie.
The river Rosetta is about 1,800 feet wide,
and at Damiat nearly 800 feet. The rise of
the Nile, occasioned by the periodical rains
of Central Africa, begins in June, about
the summer solstice, and continues to in
crease until September, overflowing the
lowlands aloßg its course. The Delta then
looks like an immense marsh, inter
spersed with numerous islands, with
villages, towns and trees just above the
water. Should the Nile rise a few feet
above its customary elevation, the inunda
tion sweeps away the mud-built cot
tages of the fellaheen, drowns the cattle,
and involves the whole population in ruin.
Again, should it fall short of the ordinary
hight, bad crops and dearth are the conse
quences. The inundations having remained
stationary for a few days, begin to subside,
and about the enl of November most of
the fields are left dry and covered with
a fresh layer of rich brown slime ;
this is the time that the lauds
are put under cultivation. Daring the
winter in England, which is the spring
in Egypt, the Delta, as well as the valley
of the Kile, looks like a delightful garden
smiling with verdure and blossom.
Bells.— It is a question whether the
general puWic visvvs the increase of bell
ringing with enrliusiasm. There are, lay
((he grumblers, noUes enough and to spare
in London without the jingling of church
bells, but it may be retorted that a noise
or two more or less cannot matter much.
In the comparative quiet of a Belgian town
the constant ringing may be wearisome, the
more so as, owing to the system on which
the hours and quarters are struck, it-is not
possible for a stranger to make out what
o'clock it is, and tvery one cf whom he in
quires him a different account. In
the silent and deserted streets of such Old
World places as Bruge*, the chimes seem
never to cease, and are a positive annoy
ance to dysi>eptic tourists. Paulinus of
Nola b< conies an object of loathing rather
than of veneration for his famous inven
tion, to any o&e who has the misfortune to
live very near a harsh peal: and it must be
allowed that very few are so delicately
harmonized as to be quite in tune. Fewer
still are runglin correct time, and it may be
questioned whether the monotonous repeti
tion of hymn tunes, rung out of time, is a
service of praise. Certainly it is the cause
of considerable friction, to say the least,
in houses not sufficiently remote from the
sound. The verse inscribed on the bell of
St. Mary's at Oxford should be written in
letters of gold, or some other legible char
acter, in every belfry—" Keeps tyme in
anye caee " To some minds, too, there is
a certain melancholy even in the sound of
»o called jiy bells. The passing bell has
in London become a thing of the past. Old
j Chsuneey says of it that it is a laudable
course that "when any sick person lay
drawing on, a bell should toll to give i.otice
to the neighbors that they might pray for
the dying party." The passing bell now
denotes that all is over ; it was not till
Hood's hero was dead that " they ran and
told the sexton, and the sexton toll'd the
bell." Paul Hentzner,in Queen Eliz»beth'b
reign, reports of the English that "they
| are vastly fond of great noises that till the
air, such as tiring of cannon, beatitg of
drums, and the ringing of bells, so that it
is common for a number of them that have
not a in their heads to get up into
some belfry and ring bells for bonre to
gether for the sake of exercise." We may
be thankful we do not live under such a
dispensation; even "a glass in their
heads" would not drive modern roughs
into the belfry. Bacon seems to have
shared the popular belief that "great ring
ing of bells in populous cities hath chased
away thunder," but Fuller judiciously ob
serves that "abbey stejples, though quilted
with bells almost cap-a-pie, were not proof
against the sword of Cod's lightninjj." —

A New England "Shore Dinner"
Chowder disappeared as if by magic, huge
plates of fish of all kinds—baked, broiled,
or fried were put out of sight before you
could say Jack ilobinson ; lobster and
other salads just came and they were gone :
fried soft-shell crabs, clam fritters, toma
toes, sweet corn, melons, and a thousand
and one other things had an ephemeral ex
istence ; they were and they were not.
And still the shore dinner progressed with
out let or hindrance for one eolidjhour and
a half. The supply was apparently un
limited, t,ad it was a good jobjjit was, for
the appetites developed at that dianir
were more significant of a famine tbsn a
seance of 700 lean kine. Well, the longest
dinner must come to an end, and that this
did happily without a single case of apo
plexy is a miracle.
