BAD BILI Tbe Senators who defeated tbe arrearg of pensions plan brought in by Senator Ingalla, and endorsed by the Bepnbliean senatorial oaacus, deserve the thanks of the taxpayers of this country. Among these Senators stand, we are glad to be able to say, the two from Connecticut. The defeat of the scheme was unexpected and it was dne largely to the courage of Senator John Sherman, who re fused to be bound by the canons decree or by the pension declaration of the Chicago pltforna'.- Bis fo.scn made b strong fmpres. slon cn the Senate. While, he said, the Senate should do everything reasonable to care for the needy and disabled soldiers of the late war, he argned that it should not be un mindful of the common good of all the peo ple of the entire oountry. This was not the time to make such an enormous demand on the treasury. We are now, he said, in times or pinon; our revenues a falling off; the shrinkage of values within tbe past year has been enormous, and is going on day by day. At this time we should not be called upon to assume a liability which would involve the enormous sum mentioned in mis aeDate. ie would pension every Union soldier Buffering from disability, and would remove some of the irksome proofs now needed; he would renpond to every rea sonable demand, but when unreasonable de mands were made he hoped that he would have sufficient courage to vote against them. even at the expense of being misunderstood. Senator Sherman s position Is the right one, and he will not be misunderstood be cause he has taken it. Senator Hawley te. his speech on the pension bill also put the matter about right when he said: Nothing can be proposed to help a disabled, wound' ed, suffering soldier, or his widow or his orphan, that I will not sustain, and nothing osn be proposed to pension an able-bodied man that I will sustain. Every man in this broad land owes bis labor, his property, and his life to his country upon demand at any bour of day 01 night trough his whole Uf, and 2,000,000 of men Tery cheerfoUy off.red all tbia. They are not beggars, nor do they desire to bankrupt the country to which they offered their services and for whioh they were ready to die. They did not aak as it is not the real voise of tbe soldiers of this country that we shall add $180,000,000 to the annual taxation. Tboea dollars come ultimately more ont of the poor men than they do from the rich men. Dis guise it as you please, the harden filters down until it rests upon tbe labor of the country. The soldiers do not ask ns to make a pension list which, when added to tbe existing pen sion list, will be $200,000,000. I venture to say that you may assemble 10,000 soldiers anywhere and argue this question fairly be fore them and they will tell jou that they do not ask that able-bodied, well men shall be pensioned simply beoasee they entered into the service of the country. They say they went cheerfully, patriotically, thanking God for the ability to go, and that they are ready to go again, and they are not beggars. If Senator Ingalls' plan bad succeeded at least $200,000,000 would have been taken from the treasury to meet the new demands which it would have created. And the ex penditure of much of this vast amount of money in tbe way proposed would have been unnecessary and mischievous. EIHIOIUAL, NOIr-S. The enthusiasm for Blaine is powerful. Under its influence a gentleman of this city about fifty years old who has never voted will be "made" this year and vote for Blaine and Logan. Since the assassination of Garfield, when prices in Wall street began to go down, the depreciation has amounted to over one bil lion dollars. When the " tarn " will come nobody can tell, but thousands of uneasy in vestors are anxiously watching for it. Again we remind the bitter Blaine parti sans that it will be a good plan to allow the Independents to live. Some of them may repent, and if they do not tbev are (so it is said) of no account. Therefore there is nothing to be gained by being cruel to them. The commencement exercises of a high school in Philadelphia, managed by Quakers, have just taken place, and it is noticeable that though there were Elizabeths and Mar garets and Gertrudes and Susans amang the graduates, there were no Lizzies and Mag gies and Gerties and Susies. A correspondent of the Boston Herald de clares his purpose to support Blaine at pref erence to any Democrat ia nominee, because he does not believe that any Democrat, how ever pure end well meaning he mitrht be. "could withstand the pressure whioh would be brought to bear upon him by the hungry, howling wolves who would be clamoring for office and the benefits of federal patronage." The immigration of this oountry will be, for tbe year ending the last day of the cur rent month, say five bnndred and fifty thousand persons ; one-third of them Ger mans, and these Germans of olasa mora in. dependent in means, and mora definitely pre pared to enter noon actual material prodno- tion than has been usual. The Germans are good citizens ; like the Scotch they are in' dusmous and prudent, iney as role go West ; they are in search of land for homes ; tney are mends ot uoerty. ine more we have of them the better. The Washington Sunday Herald haa the following : Mr. Blaine's nearest friends arc in a jubilant condition over some recent information from New York. It is reported that two great railroad magnates (one of whom is a man whose name ia a synonym for shrewdness and cunning) have each agreed to famish $ 100,000 to the Blaine campaign fond, and that other smaller capitalists bave offer ed their assistance in sums in the same pro portion to their wealth, ontil about mil lion and a half dollars have been promised. The reason given for this moat unexpected liberality is that the two great capitalists are the main proprietor! of lines of railroad run ning through Texas to the southward, and if Mr. Blaine is elected hie foreign policy ill very much stimulate the business of these roads, both in freight Jand passengers. Fresh from a journey of fonr thousand miles in mule oart and ox wagon, op and down the most disturbed district in sonth Africa, with the exception of Zululand, the Rev. Wardlaw Thompson, the traveling sec retary of the London Missionary Society, reports that in all the tribes of Sonth Africa bad brandy ia the greatest curse of the natives. The brandy keg does far more harm than the powder barrel. In North Bechnanaland brandy haa been kept out suaera wiu consiaeraoia snoceso; ana m Basutoland, in the old time the import of hitherto' with considerable suocess: and in brandy was forbidden. Sinoa the late T?nn , A ,i , , i. i i nou.w n mi uuuvi AiM MSB AUMWUWUVU freely. As a result, half the chiefs in Basn- I toland are dipsomaniacs. They drink morn- iug, noon, and night, and many of their ' absurd actions are attributable, sot to the inherent folly of the Basuto nature, but to ! the baleful inflnenoe of the white man's beverage. The cremation company ot Niw York is actively at work. An acre and a quarter of land has been purchased in Williamsburg, L. X., within thirty minutes of the ferries and overlooking the harbor, New Yok and Brooklyn. The crematory will be cf stone, in Grecian style, costing about $50,000. It will contain the inoinerating furnace, a chapel for religious ceremonies and a columbarium or memorial hall for the re ception of the urns containing the ashes of the bodies inoiuerated. Work will begin apon it in a week or two. The grounds are to be made attractive with trees, flowers and shrubs, and all suggestions of dreariness are to be removed. The managers of the enterprise are in constant reoeipt of letters urging them on, and will hasten the work because of the closing to outsiders of tbe crematory at Washington, Perm., on tbe first of August.- The eost of incineration will be from $20 to $25 and the tima occupied wiU be not over 60 minutes. ltECBKT PUBLICATIONS. Miss Blanohe Roosevelt is the author of a novel called "Stage Struck ; or, She Would be an Opera Singer." The book has donbt. leas a special intirest, since it is written with the avowed "purpose" of persuading Amen oan girls who go in high hopes to study mu sic in Europe that they would do far better to stay at home. It tells the tale of many a bright and sifted young nature lured to ex travagance, vain laboi, disappointment and blank despair. The few brilliant exceptions meet the world's ye ; the hundreds of heart breaking failures are lost in the mass, and do not serve even as warnings to the innocent and talented girls who press on toward the Bame fate. The book is timely ; its tale well told ; its conversations racy, natural, full of life ; its descriptions graphic and witty ; its pathos seemingly nnconscious, but genuine and moving a work of undeniable talent and uncommon common-sense. Published by Fords, Howard & Hurlbert, New York, and for sale in this city by Judd the book seller. A Midsummer Madness," by Ellen Olney Kirk, is a novel that will well repay reading.

An addition to a long list of valuable works on the mind and body, logic, the emotions and will, by Professor Alexander Bain, is a volume of "Praotioal Essays." This recent addition to the series consists for the most part of articles contributed to reviews. "The prinoipal bond of union among them," says their author, "is their praotioal charac ter.". The first two essays, "Common Er rors of the Mind," and "Errors of Supposed Correlatives," treat of mistaken notions re garding the action of the mind and feelings. The third paper gives the history of "The Civil Service Examinations," with a consid eration of the scheme, its bearings and re sults. The fourth essay has for its title "The Classical Controversy," the subjeot being treated as to its present aspects. "Meta physics and Debating Societies," "The TJnl Tersity School, Past and Present," "The Art of Study," "Religious Lists and Subscrip tions,'' and "Tbe Procedure of Deliberative Bodies," are the other subjeots treated.

Those who laughed over the peculiar hu mor of "Vice Versa" will be anxious to read Mr. Oustey's latest attemot, "The Giant's Robe." The story is full of amusing situa tions and is not without passages of deep pa thos. While it ia not so strikingly original "Vice Versa" it is better done. The book is clever and full of promise for its author. It is not a great book, but one that will de light many readers. Published by D.

The impression given by a perusal of the book "A Palaoe-Prison" is that, while the writer's condemnation of insane asylum .buses is not wholly nnoalled for, the imita tion of Charles Reade's "Hard Cash" ia pal pable and the style amateurish. The effect of the book is to disgust tbe reader. Pub lished by Fords, Howard & Hurlbert, New York, and for sale In this city by Jndd the bookseller.

To the Editor of the Jouasax ahd Coubieb: It was not artistic enough that our beauti ful Oreen should be embellished by the costly music stand thereon, but that our visitors at this time should see further embellishments on the Oreen two elegant large poles have been placed there. Is there no other sigiitly thing that further improvements can be made that will beautify it? Who authorizes such improvements, if they are such? Citizen. V.to Street. To the Editor of the Journal and Coubieb. a Our citizens have been waiting for several months to see a suit oommenced against those parties who will not pay the assess ment laid a long time ago for the opening of Veto street. Several persons have paid their as sessment for tbe lay-out. Others refuse, and although liens are placed on their property. they are wishful for tbe attempt to enforce payment. If the oity cannot compel pay ment, it is no more than lost that those that nave oompiiea witn the law should be re funded, for their unjust payment, and that the liens placed on delinquents be removed. Many of onr citizens believe that such assess ments oannot be collected, nor building lines, pavements, etc., compelled to be oomplied with. It is time that if tbe city can enforce payment the attempt be made. T. Will Not gorr. on tit. Committee. To th.

I wish to say j that I signed the call for the meeting at a friend's solicitation from curiosity to know what the "bolters" or Independents under stood by the word, "for the purpose of con ferring together as to our true duty and best policy under the existing circumstances." My curiosity is satisfied. I was not present at the meeting and am ; at a loss to know why my name should have been placed on the committee. However, I desire to thank tbe nominating committee for the. honor conferred, and also to decline to serve. Abthub G. Thompson. A it-eminiscence. To the Editor of the Joubnai. ano Ooubibb: On reading the Journal and Coubizb of June 28 I noticed a few reminiscences from "an old citizen" connected with the encampment of the Seventh New York in our city fifty two years ago. Now, Mr. Editor, please ex cuse me if I venture to add a few recollec tions of my own to those already published. I was at that time a school girl and attended a private school taught by a Mr. Murrell This school was located in Ohuroh street and Dr. Beers resided in the same block. The sensation of about the last of June, '32, was the visit of this orack regiment to our city. We formed a party of fonr and visited tbe headquarters of tbe Seventh, located a little north of Grand street. James Woodward, then a clerk in the employ of Asa Bradley, grocer, acted as escort. Mr. Bradley's two daughters, named respectively Lizzie and Mary, together with the writer G. A. Glen- ney, nee Wheeler were entertained by tbe visiting company and we together partook of lemonade and cake. C.I. (I think was his name) Tompkins was the acting officer of the Seventh at that time. The cholera had been expected all summer and when the news bad reached tbe camp that this scourge had made its appearance in New York a wave of sad ness swept through the touksi. Well do I re member the sad faces of omoers and men as they marehed down Wooster street to take the boat. As we haa formed pleasant ac quaintances during their encampment in onr midst their abrupt departure caused much regret. It seems to me as I recall the many that fell victims to tbe Asiatio cholera on their return to New York that the "dead march" was being played as the grand old Seventh marched down Wooster street fifty- I two years ago. tx. A. ULENNEV. 11 :nry Clay's Horse. Tne IVsLg tit. Ureal Statesman Wort at at dam. of Poster. Waihiogton Letter to the Houaton Post. "I recollect Henry Clay's turnout very well," said an old timer ; "he had one of tbe old style Concord buggies, with a top that suggested a Mother Hubbard bonnet. It was evidently a secondhand affair that Mr. Clay had picked up in a trade and nowadays would do very well for an old womau to haul vege tables around town in. The cushions were stuffed with moss, and so well worn you could see the mpBS sticking out at the sides. I'll bet Henry Clay didn't know what a lep roba was, and as for a whip he didn't have aoy. He used to slash his old sorrel stallion with tho end of the reins so loud you could hear it a block off. The steps of the buggy were gone and Mr. Clay used to jump over the wheels. When he wanted to get in he put one foot on tbe hub and swung the other around over the wheel and dashboard. The wheels were so high be bad to let the top down to get in. They had axle-grease in thOBe days, but Mr. Clay had evidently never fonnd it out. Ho always drove his borse at a canter, and you could hear the front wheels of bis buggy squeaking as many notes as there are on a piccolo. "Ah, well I do remember that sorrel slal lion," continued the old-timer. "Henry Clay won him one night at poker in John Han oook's saloon, which is still run ning on tbe avenue, from Col John Bright, who lived at Falls Church, Va Bright used to come over every week and play poker with Clay, and he generally went back to Fails Church with a pocket full of money. But that was Cla; 's luck; night. He got away with $1,200 of Bright s money, bis watch, saddle and bridle, overcoat, saddle-bags, a new suit ot clothes that were in the Baddle-bags, three finger rings and a breast-pin, a brace of pistols and a bowie knife, and a pair of boots "Oh, you needn't laugh," said the old timer, with great animation; "'that's the way they played poker in them days. A man went the whole bog or nothing. Why, didn't jou never hear of the timet Henry Clay bet himself clean down to his undershirt, and he offered to pull that off, but the other fellow didn't wear an undershirt to put up against it? Well, sir, it's so, anyhow, and the very table he played the game on is now in tbe front room upstairs over Hancock's saloon. It's an old pine table about three feet square with a hole in the middle to drop the percent age through for threes, fulls, flashes and jack pots. Well, sir, about that old stallion. He was well-known around Washint ton for sev eral years. He alwayj nickered when Clay came near him. Clay carried a pocketful of shell oorn and he gave the horse a handful every time he got into the buggy. The boys knew the stallion well, and they used to give him pieces of bread, cake, nuts or anything of tbe sort. He'd eat watermelon and meat, and I've peen him eat wads of paper, as though he was trying to make tbe boys laugh. Well, sir, Clay had a nigger' named Sam. One day he loaned the stallion to Sam to drive to Alexandria. Sam got drunk before he left town, and be started ont on tbe gal lop. He didn't stop till he got to Mount Vernon, twenty miles off. Then he turned around and galloped all the way back. The old stallion dropped dead attha edge of South Washington. There was over 100 boys at the funeral In revenge Clay sold the niggar to a Louisiana sugar planter, with a proviso in the bill of sale that the planter should hitch Sam in shafts and work him in the cane ill. Fact, sir!" Whit. Blepataatta. Frank Vincent, jr.. in th. alanhsttan for Jaly. It is three hundred years since the western world received the first extended aocount of tbe onderful white elephant. This aooount came from an Englishman named Fitch (who must have encountered great diaaonlties in traveling throuah Burmah at that time), and may be foand in Bakluyt's quaint and fa mous 'Collection of Navigations, TrafBqucs and Discoveries." This tells us that at that time the King of Burmah had fonr white ele phants, whioh were very strange and rare. It also reoords that if any other king had one the Burmese king would send for it, and wonld rather lose part of his kingdom than not get it. The chromole further tells na that when any white elephant was taken to the king, all tbe merchants of the oitv were commanded to visit it, upon which occasion each of them presented it with half a d,ucat. Aa there were a great many merchauts this made a good round sum. . At that time the white elephant stood in the king's house and received great honor , and servioe. Each of them had an apartment of its own, decorated with golden ornaments and ate its food from gold and silver vessels. Every day, when they went to the river to bathe, canopies of silk or cloth of gold were held over them, and drams, clarionets or other instruments accompanied them. As they oame ont of the river each had a gentleman in waiting to wash its feet in a silver basin, an officer Do ing appointed for that honor by the king. The black elephants were not so well treated. They were evidently regarded aa the canaille, t lough some of them were very handsome and fully nine oubits, or thirteen and a half feet high. WE DO NOT CLAIM that Hood's Sabsapastlla will cure every thing, but the fact that on the purity and vitality of the blood depend the vigor and 'health of the whole system, and that diseasa of various kinds is often only the sign that nature is trying to remove the disturbing; cause, we are naturally led to the conclusion that a remedy that gives life and vigor to the blood, eradicates scrofula and ether Im purities from it, as Hood's Sabsapakilla undoubtedly does, must be the means of pre venting many diseases that would occur without its use; hence the field of Its useful ' ness is quite an extended one, and we are warranted in recommending it for all de rangements of the system which are caused by an unnatural state of the blood. Why Suffer with Salt-Rheum ? Messrs. C I. Hood & Co., Lowell, Mass. Gentlemen I was a great sufferer from Salt-Klieum on my limbs, for a dozen years f'revlous to the summer of 1876, at which line I was cured by Hood's Sarsaparilla. The skin would become dry, chap, crack open," bleed aud itch intensely, so that I could not help scratching, which of course made them worse. At the time I com menced taking Hood's Sarsaparilla (in tho siunmer of 1876) thev were so had that they discharged, and I was obliged to keep them bandaged with linen cloths. Tho skin was drawn so tight by the heat of the disease that if I stooped over they would crack cpea and actually Drine tears into my eyes. The first bottle benefited me so much that I con tinued taking it till I was cured I used one box of Hood's Olive Ointment, to relieve the itching.
