This time wo find it in the Herald: "President Hayes hold his title to his office from the Electoral Commission." This is not so. The Electoral Commis sion could give no title. They were only appointed to inquire into the facts aud the law, ami to advise Congress; and they hail no power to declare a President elected. That power belongs to tho two Houses of Congress alone. But the bill appointing the Electoral Commission provided that their decision must be adopted by Congress aud declared as the judgment or Congress, unless the two Houses should both agree in voting toset it aside. Congress had thus unconstitu tionally bound itself beforehand; and theu, wheu the conclusion of the Com mission came up for filial action, it was received and set forth as the act of the two Houses, although the House of Re presentatives accompanied it by asolemu declaration that it was not true, that Mr. Tilden had really been elected, aud that Mr. Hayes had not been elected aud could not have any just title to the office of President. The Constitutional way to make a President is by the votes of the majority of the Electoral Colleges, counted ami declared by the two Houses of Congress. Mr. Hayes had no such majority, though the Electoral Commission falsely said he had when the ma jority of the Commis sioners believed he had not; ami while he was declared elected in the name of Congress, the two II counted the votes an i never really made declaration. i»ii the frauds iu Florida la; secondly, from the false de ion of the Electoral Commis sion; and thirdly, from that juggle iu legislation by illy ses never first frt tisiai I Li ai tel rhich the lirais ! 1 :ud its po on withou il* to native re.-> mi t the ject that di t ■rainai Senate. 1 O of the : Mr. 11 rery point false ■ it le 1.' of View morally facia by tolerance only, aud not by any right whatever.— N.

From the Net* York Herald. Accidental events as well as the progress of public sentiment favor the democratic psrty. The death of Senator Morton diminishes; the slen der and waning republican majority in the Senate, and his democratic successor will be an addition to the strength of the other side. Senator Patterson of South Carolina who is under indictment for felony, is likely to lose his seat by expulsion, successor will be a democrat, ator Davis, of Illinois who attend the Senatorial caucus of neither party, will probably act with ibe democrats in questions where they have right and justice clearly on their side. If the democratic claimants from Louisi ana and South Carolina are admitted to seats the long republican ascendan cy in the Senate is gone and the demo cratic party will bave a majority in both branches of Congress. It ss tain enougn that tba democrats will Control the Senate during the last two years of President Hayes' term, and there seems almost an even chauce that they may gain this advantage in the Foily fifth Congress. This possi ble cliauge in the parly composition of the Senate is of to much interest that it may be worth while to look in to it. The followfng classified list contains the names of all Senators en titled to seats on the day of Morton's death with the single omission of Senator Davis of Illinois wuoae inde pendent position does not permit him to bo arrayed on either side: Republicans. and his öena cer Democrats.

Oar trade with Australia is quite limit" ed, owing to the fact that American goods leaching there are seut via of Eng land, which is not advantageous. Tho goods of the Bates Manufacturing Com pany of Lewiston of the Atlantic Mills, have reached Queensland. Mr. Augus Mackay, who was commissioner from Queensland to the Centennial Exhibition' writing to a friend in this city, says that they were highly spoken of by experts, anil might hml a market. Mr. Mackay adds.i"You will be glad hear that I have managed to introduce American locomo ti ire-engines. An order for three went with last mail to the Baldwin Company, Philadelphia. American tools would come rapidly into favor—tools of best quality and most approved make tor car penters, joiners, cabinet-makers, etc.; augurs, ploughs, axes, saw-sets, and the many 'notions' for which America is famous. If acquainted with makers of A 1 articles of the kind you might advise them with confidence. A great trade could be established. There is no duty ou such articles here, and if American firms would consign moderately for a be ginning to my care, I would see the goods placed in the hands of good firms here, and will personally guarantee that the invoice amount shaft be paid. I feel assured that American tools would carry all before .hem in this market. Goods for Queensland can be sent|via Sydney Melbourne." There appears to be_ opening for American goods in Australia which ought to be improved. We lack the ready means which England pos sesses of distributing goods, and this feat ure of commerce ought to receive great er attention than inhas in the past. or From the Philadelphia Times. THE STATE CONTEST. When it isßtated that both Philadelphia and Allegheny are doubtful on the State ticket on Tuesd seem needless to inqu next, it would into particulars the result of tho election just at hand. Philadelphia gave Hayes 15,000, in round numbers, and Allegheny gave him a lit de less than 10,000, when the majority in the State was short of 18,000, and noir both aie uncertain as to which State ticket they will give a majority. Philadelphia is most likely to give a Republican majority, as is Allegheny, but the two will inevitably falloir the full amount of the Hayes majority in the State last year. That would leave the Republicans ahead in the two counties 7,500, and he must be a sanguine calcu lator who counts on Philadelphia and Allegheny combined to reach larger fig WMle it is possible for Philadel phia to give 5,000 and Allegheny 2,500, it is quite improbable, and any result would not be surprising from a nominal Republican majority in thoae localities to a Democratic mujority ia either both of them. It is entirely safe to assume as the best estimate that can be mad« for Jh« Re publican«, that their whole majority iu the State last year will be lost iu Philadelphia and Allegheny, with chances of the ticket comiiw'out 3,000 or more worse the to urea. or that. r the other counties.

The oldest London gas company was chartered in 1810. Since lien it has ab sorbed six others, and iu 1870 consumed 1,UÜU,0ÜU tons of coal, or nearly iwo tliirds of that used by all the other com panies. The total amount of capital of the metropolitan companies at the close of 1876 was over $.76,000,000, with au thority to raise §20,000,000 more. The net prolit on this last year was $4,270,000. In the last eight years gas in London has, notwithstanding the rise in coal, become cheaper by nearly eleven cents per thou sand feet. The volume of gi ,000 cubic feet, where as now it is very nearly half as much This Increase is out of all pro portion to the increase in population, and can only be accounted for by ihe prejudice against the use of gas in sitting and bed-rooms having gradually abated.

Rober Sher man, of revolutionary fame maker, and the Shermans of to-day and Mr. Kvarts are his descendants. Mr. Hayes said in one of his speeches that his grandfather was a mechanic.

Sun. years. Andrew Graut, though Mir. as a shoe Within the past eighteen years twelve falls of meteoric stones have occurred iu the United States, of which specimens have been collected. Eight of these falls took place iu the prairie region of the West, extending from Ohio to Kansas, and from Kentucky to Wisconsin, inclu sive. Prof. J. L. Smith of Louisville gives a map of this region in the Ameri can Journal o/Scienee and Aids, showing the locality of each fall, and he states that the aggregate estimate weight of the eight was 1,060 kilogrammes, equal to more than 2,300 pounds. Going back further, aud taking a period of sixty years, Prof. Smith finds that there have been twenty well-noted falls in the Uni ted States, ten of which were in the same region ; aad those ten weighed twenty times as much as the ten which occurred outside its limits.

A CUKE POE INTEMPERANCE It was suggested some years ago by Liebig that the use of cod-liver oil would have a tendency to promote a distate for alcoholic stimulants. According to the same authority many people have found they could lake wine with animal food, but not with farinaceous or amylaceous nutriment. A well-known man of sci ence, Mr. Charles Napier; has under taken so test these insertions, and the results of his experiments are set forth in a paper read before the physiological sec liou of the British Association, and which has attracted much attention in Eng land. The experience of Mr. Napier's own family had furnished a seeming proof of the accuracy of Liebig's statement. They had for two years adopted a vegitariau diet,and although brought up in the mode rate use of alcoholic liquors now felt no inclination for them. More decesive evi dence, however, was supplied by the ap plication of the theory to twenty-seven cases, the more striking of which may be briefly cited. The first instance is of a military officer, 61 years old, of an aristocratic Scottish family who had con tracted habits of excessive whiskey drink iug while on service with his regiment in India. We are told that the custom w' s to eat scarcely any bread, fat or vegeta bles, his breakfast consisting mostly of salt fish, and his dinner almost wholly of roast meat. During the day lie consum ed from a pint to a quart ol whiskey, and was not sober more than half his time. By Napier's advice he was induced to re turn to the breakfast of oatmeal porridge on which he had been brought up, and IO adopt a dinner of which peas and beans formed important ingredients. He do"s not seem to have iiked the change at first and made the significant complaint that he could not "enjoy nis whiskey much as formerly. About this time there was a panic among flesh eaters in Eng land owing to the cattle plague, and con sequently, the whole family was put on a vegetarian diet. For some weeks the husband grumbled very much, but his taste for whiskey gradually disappeared and in two mouths from the time he be came an entire vegetarian he relinquished alcliolic stimulants, and, according to Mr Napier, has noQsiuco returned to either flesh or alcoho', Another case which merits special no tice was that of a gentleman of sixty who had been addicted to intemperate babils for thirty five years, his outbreaks avera ging one a week. His constitution was so shattered that he had great difficulty in insuring his life. After an attack of delirium tremens, which nearly eaded fatally, he was persuaded to enter upon a farinaceous diet, which, we are assur ed,cured him completely in seven months lie seems to have been very thin at the beginning of the experiment, but by the close of the period named had gained twenty-eight pounds, being then of about the normal weight for a person of his height. We shall mention but one other of the twenty-seven cases reported by Mr. Napier. It is that of an analy tical chemist 62 years of age, who is des cribed as a person of some talent but of intemperance habits. Upon Liebig's statement being recalled to him he ex pressed an opinion that farinaceous food would not suit his own constitution, affirming that lie felt tie liad eaten noth ing unless Uu dined largely upon flesh. Ife consented, however, to test tho gestion by a months trial, nis first din ner, which consisted juincipallg of ma caroni, was eaten with little appetite, bu lie persevered, contriving to stimulate t desire for food by vigorous out-door ei vises, and before the end of six weeks was a total abstainer. it is not pretended that these expel ments were numerous enough or per lormed under such diverse conditions as to completely demonstrate the truith of Liebig's theory; but they certainly indi cate that substantia! results may be ex pected from an exhaustive application of them. Among the ariicles of food which are specified by Mr. Napier as preemi nent for antagonism to alcohol arc carcmi, haricot beans, dried peas, and lentils, all of which should be well boil ed, and flavored with plenty of butter or olive oil. The various garden vegetables are said to be helpful, but a diet mainly composed oCthem would not resist the ten dency to intemperance so effectually ps one of macaroni and farinaceous food. From tins point of view, highly glutinous bread would be of great ulility, but it should not be sour, such acidity being calculated to foster that habitof alcoholic drinking. A little remark may be ap plied to the use of salted food. as sug ex - PENINSULA ITEMS.
