Discussing this subject, the Oakland News says: “As the trial goes on the prisoner is all the time gaining on public opinion. Many who were shocked at the horribleness of the assassination begin to reason against the law, and ask themselves whether, after all, there was not some measure of justification. “Had that mature man of education, social influence and mental force behaved so toward my wife or sister—followed her with written and verbal protestations of love and devotion by day and by night, back and forth and around the continent and to be thought false at last 1“ And because the woman had been erratic inconstant, fierce in her pas sions and sinful in her practices, are we to suppose that she, too, did nut feel the mad dening agony 7 Because she had become measurably an outcast, shunned by women, almost alone in the world, “hating the liv ing and fearing the dead,” and trusting only to the one last friend and lover, who can say—what juryman can swear that at the moment of the act the fiery soul had not flown from its orbit 7 There is where the nobler principle in human nature is disposed to grasp at and upho d the descending ax, and here enters in the majestic presence of Justice and the Law. It was in defending a woman for more abon donod that Col. Baker uttered a passage that will live until the extinction of our language ; “There is not in all this earth a humane being so lowly, so lost to the world, so abandoned by her kind, so hunted to cities of refuge, so despairing of life, so afraid of death, that I could nut find a hand to uplift, and a tongue to speak in her de fense, yen, though around her the angry waves of public opinion should rage and roar and roll, as the ocean rolls round the rock !” A Husband Reproaches Himself at the Funeral of His Wife. —At the funeral of his wife, at New Brighton, (Pa.), on the 3d inst, Dr. K. P. Howland, of this city, made the following remarks : I would like to say a few words to you.— It may not be Appropriate for me to say so ; but I feel lhatit will do me good to say them, and it may be of benefit to you. I believe that it is not n law of nature and of God that the life of a humane being in the prime of existence should be blotted out. I Believe it is designed that we should live a long life of association and happiness with each other, and that pain, disease and priniature death is a consequence of violation of physical laws. I feel that part of my life has been a failure. 1 feel that 1 have not faithfully applied the knowledge and experience I have gained in surrounding her, whom to day we shall lay in the grave beside our children, with whose healthful influence and conditions that might have prolonged her life as many more years. I feel that 1 might have re moved her from those miasmatic influences which caused her death, but which I have been able to withstand. Regrets for the past will not now bring her back to life, but I hope they will influence us in regard to ourselves and the dear ones who are still arouud us. Your loss is a great one but mine is n greater. You have lost a daugh ter, a sister and friend, but I have lost the companion of my life. I have lost her who for nineteen years has been to me a loving wife and true compan ion ; one who, when misfortunes overtook mo, when friends deserted and enemies as sailed me, was ever at my side to encourage with words of help. She has gone at a time of life when her past experience had fitted her for greater usefulness in the future, and when her prospects for future happiness were bright ana firomising. Her sickness was of long duration, and she had entire consciousness to the last. Day by day she saw herself wasting away and her strength departing, but she was resigned to her eon dition, and did not complain. On the last day, when she knew that she could live but a little while longer, she sent her love to you all, and as she laid her weak hands on my face and gave mo her parting kiss, she said that if it was a law of nature and of God that her spirit could revisit the earth she would aid and influence me in my future path of duty. Oh that we can live a life that can die such a death. Do not let us live entirely for ourselves, hut do all the good we can to those around us. I now go hack to my la bors, resolved to increase my usefulness to my fellow man, and that I will live a life that my spirit may be a fit companion to hers. Father, mother, brothers, sisters, al though ties of kindred that bound us are severed, and the link of humanity that join ed us are broken, I know that the affection and kindness that you have shown me dur ing Ibcse long years will not be changed, and that you will he a father and mother, brothers and sisters, to me still, and that 1 will always have your best wishes for my futurgjvelfare.—Washington Chronicle, A Remarkable Spring. —A correspondent sends to the Journal of Chemistry the fql lowing account of a remarkable spring in Texas: “About sixty miles noth of Galena, near the town of Liberty, there is a spiing, the water of which is quitd acid,_ simulating lemonade, and those who taste it like it so much that they drink it almost immoderate ly. When you feel hot it is quite delicious; and under any circumstances, whether hot or cold the drinking of it proemces perspira tion, with,no unpleasant effect afterward. — The spring has no apparent outlet or inlet. It is probably sixty feel across it. and it is covered wifh a white froth or foam, which on close examination appears like cream tartar on a wine cask. It kills insects, worms, and. other small animals that come near and nse it. No fish or other evidence i of life is seen within its waters.” GRANT AND COLFAX. To the great surprise and regret of the v ast number of his warm admirers. Mr. Col fax, a few months since, announced his pur pose of retiring from public life at the close of bis term, and devoting his attention to pri vate business, for which none doubt that his qualifications for success are as eminent as they have been proved to be for public duties during his long and honorable career in the public service. This determination was un derstood, and indeed, declared, to have been influenced by a conviction that the interests of the country and the preferences of the people required the re-election of Grant to the Presidency; and now, when events at the moment have occasioned divisions in the Republican preferences that could easily be united upon the universally popular Vice President, and the inducement for a recon sideration of his determination, operating upon laudable personal ambition, are more than ordinarily flattering, Mr. Coltax adheres to his convictions and purpose, and on oc casion of the recent serenade to Senator Mor ton, gave the following testimony of eonfid ence in the honesty and devotion of the Pre sident against the aspersions and censures to which he has been subjected through malice, misunderstanding; At the conclusion of Morton’s speech, Vice President Colfax was formally intro duced, and said he came to listen to the speech of the distinguished Senator who had so ably defended Republican principles, and so energetically vindicated our Chief Magistrate from unjust attack. A Chief Magistrate of whom I may say, from my intimate acquaintance with him, his very heart throbs for the honor and best interests of the nation, and who, I believe, will be honored with public approval in 1872 as he was in 1808. [Applause.] What is the great question that looms up above all others before us to-day, which causes a Republican Congress to linger here in this city when they would gladly be at their homes ? It is protection of life, liberty, political rights and safety of our citizens against the wickedest conspiracies that ever disgraced a nation pro fessedly at peace. It is to cover with the national shield the weak and poor, bumble and defenseless. [Applause,] I rejoice that on Thursday last we saw the whole Republican phalanx in the Mouse voting together, us one man, shoulder to shoulder, and heart with heart, for an effi cient law, so sorely needed, and I hope next week we shall see the same conspicuous unity manifested in the Senate. If w* do, I know as you d<>, that the Piesi dent will use the power put in his hands by the law-making authority, not to wrong or injure any one, but to protect, to the full extent, all who are now so cruelly and shame fully outraged. [Applause.] Rut when this vindication of the wronged and the defenseless is attempted, how is it met? Our opponents use as their favorite weapon, the terms “carpet bagger” and “scalawag,” and. covering them with oblo quy and denunciation, they thus seek to puliute the enormities they dare not directly defend. Who is a carpet-bagger? lie is a citizen of the United States, born on our soil, or naturalized in our courts, who has the right to settle wherever he pleases under our flag—in North Carolina as well ns Indiana ; in South Carolina as well as Ver mont; with the right to proclaim his senti ments wherever he lives, nod whatever his creed, condition, color or profession may be, on the bouse tups or by bis ballot, with none to molest or to make him afraid. It was for this our soldiers bore the starry flag repres enling the power of the Republic all over the South, to make the soil of the entire Repub lic free for all its citizens. Who is a scalawag? 110 is a native of the South, who, when the storm of civil war burst on his region, dared, despite the dang er of death, imprisonment, confiscation or exile, to declare that he stood by the Union, true amongst the false; loyal, against armed treason ; faithful amongst the faithless found. It is to cover them all with the shield of national protection against masked and and midnight conspiracy, murder and scourg ing that a Republican Congress interposes between them and their enemies. It is to protect those who are poor and humble, and who, unlike the rich and powerful, have no other protector but the law, that Congress remains here for their vindication. It is to end these shameless outrages that have already dishonored the nation and that have already gone entirely unpunished so long. On our banner wo have that noble motto “Equal and exact justice for all men.” Thirty years ago it was an honorable motto of the Democracy of that day ; hot for what ore we now denounced by the Democ rats of our times? It is because we have taken that ptinciple which they once pro claimed but no longer proclaim, and have enshrined it forever and irrevocably in’our National Constitution, and because we* in tend that it shall ho respected and obeyed throughout our entire domain. Candidates. —The Colusa Sun says that as yet Haight and Johnson are the two principal candidates for Governor on the Democratic side. But it adds ; he name of Col. Hoge is being men tioned quite freely in connection with that office. Judge Hagur, of San Francisco, has many warm friends. Roach is active, full of energy, and thinks hU chances good. Mandeville, the old war horse, is at San Francisco, and would like to carry the banner. It is conceded that MeCop pin can carry the entire San Francisco del egation, if he goes into the fight. We heard it suggested that Senator Farley, or Amador, although not a candidate, might be brought in as a compromise man ” In Janesville, Wis., a little fellow was taken to task by his aunt for some suppos ed offense which he persistently denied. “Now, Johnnie,” said she, “I know you are not telling me the truth-; I see it in your eye.” Fulling down the lower lid of the. organ which had well nigh betrayed bis.veracity, Johnnie exuldngly replied “Yon can’t tell anything about it, aunt; that eye always was a little streaked." NUMBER 5. UNION, HARMONY AVD VICTORY. Four years ago the Republican party, which had carried the State at the preced ing election by 18,000 majority, was divid ed and defeated. Tricksters in oar ranks accomplished what the combined enemy never could have done, and wrought the defeat of the party which had again • and again borne the Union banner to victory. The State which stood high up in the Lin coin column of 1864, was thrown into the hands of the men who derided him while living, and slandered him when dead. Since then we have experienced nearly four years of Democratic misrale. The Union sentiment of our people has been shocked and insulted by the elevation of secessionists to high positions, and the treasury has been plundered by shameless legislatures. The time approaches when the people will be called upon to decide the destinies of the State for another lour years. Have we learned anything from •the experience of the past? Are we to repeat the follies of the campaign of 1867 ? Upon the decision of this question rests victory or defeat Then our party was broken and demoralized by the efforts of selfish politicians to thrust themselves forward at any cost. The welfare of the party was nothing to them; they only car ed to use it as a stepping stone to office. Unhappily that class have not all died in the last four years. As the prospects for a Republican success continue to brighten, they are beginning to lay their wires in order to profit by it. In the present emer gency success is a duty. To obtain it we must place upon our rickets good men and true, and none others No candidate, who is a true Republican, will seek to press his claims to the detriment of the party. If he is devoted to Republican principles, and not to selfish interests, he will not allow his name to stand in the way of suc cess. It is a time when the good of the party should rise superior to personal con siderations; when individual candidates should forbear to press their claims, if by so doing they endanger the harmony and unity which is essential to success. He who would sow dissensions in our ranks is no better than a traitor. It is no time now to indulge in private feuds and per sonal animosities. Let us close up the ranks, and move on the ememy in solid columns, and we shall march to victory. —[Vallejo Chronicle. Record of the Republican Party. At the Republican State Convention recently held in Rhode Island, the first resolution passed sums up the record of what the party has accomplished, which is a noble monument of patriotism and loyal ty to the free institutions of the country. No true Republican can read the follow ing brief synopsis without feeling pride and having faith in his party : Resolved, That we gladly renew our al legiance to the principles and policy of the Hcpublican party, and we challenge the h story of political organizations to parallel the record of its ten years of national rule. A gigantic rebellion has been suppress ed ; Armies of a million raised and disbanded; Four millions of slaves set free; Labor made free and honorable ;. Free homesteads offered to all settlers; The pacific Railroad built; Liberty and equal civil and political rights for the first time secured by consti tutional amendments; The .States that broke their connection reconstructed and restored ; Taxation frequently reduced, the last reduction being eighty millions a year; The national debt greatly reduced, two hundred millions of the reduction taking place under the present administration ; 'J he national credit raised at home and abroad; The price of gold brought steadily down ward ; The revenues vigilantly collected and honestly disbursed ; The perfect citizenship of all adopted citizens tor the first time protected by set tling the doctrine of expatriation ; The Monroe doctrine vindicated in the case ot the French invasion of Mexico; Peace maintained and the national char acter kept in the highest respect through out the world. We know no way of judgingthe future but by the past. ’1 he Republican party has never made a pledge to liberty and union which it has not redeemed. From beginning to end, it has met the desperate opposition of the Democratic party. Kev. Father DeSiuet, the celebrated Jesuit missionary, who has spent a long life trav ersing the boundless plains of the West, often fur months alone in the midst of fierce and savage Indian tribes, is seriously ill at St. Louis. Probably no living man is better acquainted with the Indian character, or speaks a greeter number Indian dialects than this well-known missionary.—Toledo Blade. Wendell Phillips declares his belief that the experiment of universal suffrage is a failure, so far as great cities are concerned. He says. “Yon may put on your diamonds and walk on London strand and be safe.— You would not try it on Broadway without making your will; and Broadway is the un adulterated reeult of universal suffrage.” There are said to be 30,000 Angora goats in the several counties oft his State and the number is rapidly increasing. The productions of the Ano ora will, it is be lieved, prove more profitable than that of toe common sheep.
