THE CARRINCTOX PBBLISHING CO.
;KE HAVEN, CONN., THURSDAY MOIUSTNTx, JULY 24 1884.
When we take pen in
hand to write an adver
tisement in these days,
with the purpose of let
ting our friends know
what things we are
selling cheap, so much
occurs to us that we
dont know where to be
gin, and we feel we
should need tp,usat
least a whole page of
a paper. But we cant
afford that, so we have
to pick out just a few
items. The first that
we would name to-day
ts the item of Ham
burg Em broideries.
When we came to this
stock in the course of
our marking down ope
rations a protest was
7nade by those in charge
that reduction was not
needed, as our prices
had been again ana
again proved to be lower
than those of all our
competitors. But all
the same we did reduce
them, and heavily too.
Another stock which
weptit away down, very
far below the ordinary
prices, was that of
WHite Cambric Trim
mings, in puffing, tuck
ing, ruffling and com
binations of these. We
made also a great many
reductions on White
The prices on our Para
sols haye -been a good
deal talked about,
some of the manufac
turers -blaming us1 for
having" spoilt the trade"
too early. But that is
ozir affair. Since last
week we have put some
of them down even lower
than they were. Eider
down Jersey Cloth in
light colors for dressing
gowns, infants sacks,
&c, is another article
they say we are selling
too cheap. We have
over a dozen pretty
styles in it.
We mention these
things because we did
not refer to them in our
but it must not be for
gotten that by far the
most important bar
gains to be got from us
at this sale are those
in Dress Goods and
Silks. And all the
numerous other things
we mentioned before are
still selling at the same
extremely low prices,
or lower, except in so
far as any lots may
haye been closed out.

JAMES i. BLAINE, or Blaine.
FOR VICE PRESIDENT,
JOHN A. LOGAN, of Illinois,
REFORM IN COPIAH COUNTY.
In his great speech in Boston the other
day Senator Hoar showed what the reform
ers who intend to vote for Cleveland will
really vote for. He pointed out that the
chief support of the Democratic candidate
would come from the solid South, and then
showed how the South has been made and
kept'gulid. He referred -to the Copiah coun
ty case, which he investigated a few months
ago. A band of 150 Democrats composed, as
was admitted, of "the best citizens," armed
with rifles and shot-guns, rode about that
county for a fortnight before election intimi
dating Republicans. The day before elec
tion the armed company waited upon Print
Matthews, the leading Republican of the
county. Matthews was "the principal citizen
of the county, a wealthy merchant, with two
sons in college, and two grown daughters in
his house. He was generous, brave, a liberal
benefactor of schools and churches. The Demo
cratic witnesses testified that everybody liked
him if it were not for his politics. They
drew up in the road near his gate and sent
him a demand in writing that he should ab
stain from voting the next day. He answer
ed the messenger: -'It seems to me this i
very strange thing in a Republican govern
ment. 1 have tried to be useful to society
every way that I could. I have never done
any of you any harm. I admit that it is in
your power to murder me, but I am going to
vote to-morrow unless you do kill m
Matthews went to the polls and cast the
first vote in the morning. As he placed it
in the box, Wheeler, who was the Democratic
challenger, shot him dead with the charge of
one barrel in the heart and another just below
the throat. A mass meeting was held the
next day, the murder was approved, and
tew weeKs alter the murderer was made city
marshal of Hazelhurst.
Any reference by northern Republicans to
this dastardly crime is called "waving the
bloody shirt," and we are told that the Re
publican vote in the South is not suppressed
by force and fraud. If there are any among
our readers who think the time for waving
the bloody shirt has gone by we invite their
attention to the following from the Brook-
naven (Mississippi) .Democrat, a prominent
party journal published near the scene of
the murder of Matthews: -
It is true it has already been intimated
that the Republicans are going to make an
aggressive campaign in this State. We would
recommend moderation in this respect We
AT A i .... r -
we me present opportunity tnus .early in
the fight to throw out a friendly warning to
me more recess ana unprincipled: dema
gogues of the Repubhcan oartv in this and
adjoining counties not to let their "patriot
ism" get tne better of their discretion. If
they are endowed with ordinary judgment
evcu ab j w mc.ii personal saxety may
be supposed to engender they may see the
"handwriting on the wall" reflected in the
light of recent events. We invite
every Kepublican to be true to his
party and vote according to his convic
tions. Jet the colored man exercise bis
right in this respect of his own vo
lition, without fear or hindrance. But let
there be no bulldozing. And let it be at
once understood that it will be an act so per
ilous tnat none but fools will undertake to
antagonize the colored race against the
whites. Let this, we say. be understood defi.
mteiy. it cannot be too earnestly or too
speedily impressed, and if the fate of Print
Matthews will add any weight to our utter
ances, his party will have reaped more bene-
nt rrom nis aeatn tnan ne could have con
ferred on it by living. "A word to the wise
There is no misunderstanding the meaning
of this. And as long as the state of affairs
indicated by it exists in the South, so long
will the Republican party have a missi
worthy the support of the purest and most
The Norwalk Gazette says that Mr. P. C.
Lounsbury is the man whom the Republicans
should nominate for governor, but it has, of
course, nothing to say against the Hon. Hen
ry B. Harrison.
A German engineer has just obtained let
ters patent on a aevice tor building mine
shafts and bridge piers upon quicksands.
His method, says a correspondent, is to in-
troduce pipes into the quicksands and pump
through them a freezing mixture by which
the entire mass of quicksand is frozen solid,
when it may be worked through with no
more difficulty than a stratum of rock.
The members of the committee appointed
in Rochester, New York, to attend the Inde
pendent conference were interviewed with in
teresting results. The Rev, A. H. Strong, D.
president of the theological seminary,
said: "I am, on principle, a believer in free
trade." Robert Craig: "I think the ultimate
tendency is to the principle of free trade."
Robert Matthews: "I believe in the principle
of free trade as an ultimate result of revenue
reform." Theodore Bacon: "I was a mem
ber of a free trade association eighteen years
ago." The Rev. Dr. M. Landsberg: "I be
lieve in the principle of free trade.'' Henry
Booth: "I think the majority of men in
this Independent movement are advocates of
the doctrine of free trade."
On the first of January of this year the act
of the British Parliament which abolished the
rule of the commissioners of patents came in
force. The first report of the comptroller of
patents, which the new law requires before
June 1 in each year; has been submitted, and
though it covers only four months it shows
that the reduced eost of obtaining a patent
under the new law has acted as a strong
stimulus. Instead of the usual monthly list
of about 500 applications from the United
Kingdom, there were 2,500 applications in
January alone. For the four months includ

700. Nearly three-fourths of these appli

The decision which has just been made by
Surrogate Rollins of New York in a will
case will cause some discussion. John Tilby,
an aged butcher, married a woman who was
supposed to be a widow, and dying soon af
terward bequeathed her bis estate, : which
amounted to something like $300,000. Two
sons by a former marriage contested the
will on the ground that the woman had
another husband living at the time she mar
ried their father, from whom she had not
been divorced. It was maintained on her
behalf that she had never been legally mar
ried to the man who preceded Mr. Tilby in
her affections. The surrogate, however,
found from the evidence that the allegation
made by the sons as to her former marriage
was true, and it followed, as a matter of
course, that her marriage with Mr. Tilby was
illegal. The question then was whether the
will could be set aside because the testator
gave his property to a woman to whom he
was illegally married. The surrogate ruled
that Mr. Tilby had been deceived by the
woman, and was a victim of fraud and de
ception at the time he made his will. Con
sequently it was not admitted to probate.
A sketch of the life of Robert Koch, the
discoverer of the cholera germ, appears in a
recent number of the Gartenlaube. Dr.
Koch is now forty-one years old. In 1866 he
took his M. D. degree. For the next six
years he slowly and laboriously worked his
way upward as assistant physician in' out-of-
the-way hospitals. Fortune did not smooth

years. Under circumstances so unfavorable
for scientific research he prosecuted his
studies with a success which secured a world
wide recognition of his genius. His first dis
tinction was won by the publication of the
results of his quiet labor on the methods of
the artificial dyeing of microscopic objects
especially of bacteria. By the general publi
his discovery could not be appreciated, but
those who understoodthe value of these

bacteria knew that with it a new era had
dawned for science. During the last five
years he has succeeded in identifying the
germs of cattle disease, of consumption and
of cholera. These discoveries are not ii
dental strokes of good luck, but the natural
fruits of his own system of research. Honors
have been conferred on Dr. Koch and his col

A Review of the Two Great Pvartles.
To the Editor of the Journal and Courier :
The Republican and Democratic parties
have held their national conventions, adopt
ed their platforms and selected their candi
dates, and the campaign opens all along the
lines from Maine to California.
Each of these parties has anational reputa
tion as a party organization, the leaders stand
ing on each side of the dividing lines sub
stantially now as they have stood since 1861,
dictating the policy, the platforms and
the nominations. Candidates are merged
in the party placing them m nomination
and the election of either will be a party
triumph, although the names of the candi
dates will have a bearing upon the result of
These two parties sustain the same relation
to each other and are substantially the same
in principle now that they have been since
lool. Jutch has a party history, the out
growth of it partyfprineiples, which history
neither party repudiates or desires to blot
out. But on the contrary, as often as they
assemble in conventions, they point with
pride to the record of the past, and renew
their devotion to it for the future. There is
no better way of judging of the future than
I by the past, and judging by the past is there
anything m tne history of tne Democratic
party that commends itself to the confidence,
i support or even respect ot any American cit
izen outside of the office he might fill? What
has it ever done to ameliorate the condition
of the American people when it has been in
power and administered all the affairs
of ;the government from resident down
to i the lowest office in its gift!
In 1861, after long Democratic rule, the Re
publican party came into power, and what
was its inheritance! It found the national
government honeycombed with treason and
misdeeds in all the branches of government
and governmental machinery at home and
abroad, a depreciated currency, a depleted
treasury, our six per cent, bonds at nearly
lOWi per- cent, discount, our public credit
gone, business paralyzed, American citizen
ship of little value, our navy scattered, our
army demoralized, a war on hand for the
destruction of the Union, and many other
evils not necessary to mention, all growing
out of the policy and misrule of the Demo
cratic party .-
lo right these evils and restore the eov-
ernment to respectability and power was the
work the Republican party had before it. Its
success forms the grandest epoch and bright
.est - pure in American history. The
government is restored to unity and
power, and although it took half a
million of lives to do it, the achievement was
worth the sacrifice. Our national credit has
been redeemed, our 8 per cent, bonds are
worth nearly double in market that our 6
percents. were in 1861, our currency is the
best in the world, American citizenship re
spected, and wherever our flag floats it guar
antees protection to its subjects, slavery is
abolished and the races put upon equal po
litical footing, business enterprises have
prosperea ana larjor ana industry are re
warded. All of these achieved under the
policy and rule of the Republican party. All
of these Repubhcan measures the Democratic
party has opposed and fought against from
first to last. In its party creeds for twenty
years past the Democratic party has de
nounced the Republican policy as impractica
ble, futile and a failure.
The Republican party since 1861 has gone
lurworu acnievmg grand results tor tne na
tion, and holding to its achievements with
promises of further grand results in the fu
ture development ot our national resources
and possibilities, while the Democratic party,
naving opposed ail in the past, proposes
nothing good for the future.
It will not do to say that the past issues
between - the parties are dead issues and
should be ignored in the future. They are
living, vital issues, facts interwoven into the
history of the parties, fought for by the one
and tougnt against . by the other.
Ana tne recora stands without an
apology from either. The life blood
and heart throbs of the Republican
party are quickening to new life and devo
tion to the interests of the people, as those
interests widen and expand under the inspi
ration of the genius, wisdom and fidelity of
rsiaine and Logan, while the Democratic
party, represented by its candidates, is joined
to its past idols and tainted by the corpses
Looking at the recent conventions of the
two parties we find the Republican composed

have been identified with the party in heart.

Democratic convention had a large percent
age of the old rebel element to dictate its
policy and help formulate a tricky catch-
vote platform that means all things to all
men, and a ticket that means all things to all
men in general, and to bourbon chiefs and
rebel generals in particular is it commended.
The Republican party is the living embodi
ment of all that is valuable in this govern
ment to-day. It is proud of its past history,
and has no apology to offer for the past, or
in the present. It stands out in shining
light boldly and pre-eminently the American
party that has rescued the nation from its
perils incident to Democratic rule, and it

ican crew, who have rescued and recon
structed the ship, manned her 8pars,furnished
her rigging and launched her out on a
prosperous voyage. "It is no time to
change horses in the midst of the
stream." So it is unwise to change
commanders when the voyage is half finished.
What reason or argument do Democrats pre
sent for the election of their candidates I Mr.
Hendricks, the candidate for Vice President,
one of the ablest and most persistent oppo
nents of Republican policy and ablest expo
nent of Democratic policy, strikes the key
note in a comprehensive summary of reasons
why its candidates should be elected. He
says there are 60,000 Republican office-holders
who must be removed, and their places
filled by Democrats when they come into
power. And this is the civil service reform
pap thrown out to the Independents to
come over and help beat Blaine. How the
dear little coddlings with Republican ante
cedents can go over and nestle down into the
Democratic nest and partake of the unnatu
ral foster mother's milk without its souring
upon their stomach, is prat comprehension.

The Suture of Nerves.
From the London Globa.
The Academy of Sciences was entertained
the other day with a description of the new
operation which M. Tillaux has performed
with so much success. This is the repara
tion of a broken nerve after the two ends
have been long separated, and the part of it
which was so seperated by an interval from
commimication with the brain has become
entirely useless. For a long time, indeed
always until a very few days ago, it had been
supposed impossible to effect this junction,
owing partly to the fact that the two ends
would contract, so as to be short to meet one
another. Indeed, the surgeons, all with one
consent, declared that the thing was impossi
ble and inconsistent with the principles of
their art. M. Tillaux was of a different opin-
and has made two experiments which
show conclusively that he was right and the
faculty was wrong. The first was a ease of a
woman who had cut through her wrist with
a pain of glass, severing one of the most im
portant nerves in the arm. For four months
the hand had been paralyzed, and had lost
ail sense of feeling; but the doctor has now
sewn up the nerve, and the hand has resumed
all its power. The other case was still more
extraordinary, being that of a man in whose
arm the nerve had been severed for fourteen
years, but whose cure was no less complete.
The new process is called by its inventor,
"secondary suture, "and is, as it may be sup
posed, nailed with great interest by the Acad
How Clay Took His Defeat.
The following interesting incident was re
lated many years ago by Mrs. Robert Todd,
of Kentucky, the stepmother of Mrs. Abraham
Lincoln, and has never before been print,
The Todds and Clays were al ways on inti
mate terms, and in 1844 were living neai
each other in Lexington, y. Henry Clay
and James K. Polk were then rival candidates
for the Presidency,the chances,as were gener
ally supposed, being strongly in favor of the
great Whig leader. As it turned out, how
ever, the contest was much closer than had
been anticipated, and finally advices from
other States showed that the result hinged
upon the vote of New York. There was no
telecraphs in those days, and the news had
to come by the slow course of the mails. The
New York mail was due in Lexington at 10
o'clock in the evening of a certain day, and it
was known would tell the story of victory
or defeat. As it happened, a young lady
relative of Mr. Clay was to be married on the
same evenmg, and insisted upon nis pres
ence, though under the circumstances he
would much rather have remained at home.
Mr. and Mrs. Todd attended this memorial
wedding party, which was not large, and
composed almost exclusively of the family
connections and intimate friends all ardent
Whigs, and of course deeply interested m the
pending political event. As the hour for the
arrival of the mail approached, Mrs. Todd
saw two or three gentlemen quietly leave the
room, and knowing their errand, watched
eagerly for their return. When they came in,
she knew by the expression of each counte
nance that New York had gone Democratic.
The bearers of the bad tidings consulted to
gether in a corner, and then one of them ad
vanced to Mr. Clay, who was standing in the
center of a group, and handed him a paper.
Mrs. Todd aware of what it contained.fasten-
ed her eyes upon him. He opened the paper,
and as he read the paragraph which sounded
the death-knell of his political hopes and his
life-long ambition, she saw a distinct blue
shade begin at the roots of his hair, pass
slowly over his face and disappear. Without
saying a word upon the subject which must
have monopolized all his thoughts, he lay
down the paper, and turning to a table, filled
a gxass wt wc, , --
with a pleasant smile, said: "I dnnk to the
health and happiness of all assembled nere.
Setting down the glass he resumed the con
versation as if nothing had occurred, and was
as usual the light and life ot the company.
But Mrs. Todd said as soon as the contents
of the paper were known, "a wet blanket fell
on everybody," and in half an hour all the
guests had departed with heavy hearts feel
ing that gallant "Harry of the West" had
fought his last Presidential battle, and lost
the prize forever.
