Revolutionary.
The Democrats have uot been much iu
power of late years, nor have their perform
ances when they have come temporarily into
aseeutlency anywhere been such as to inspire
confidence in their -qualifications for conduct
ing the government. In New York, in Indi
ana, iu California and in Connectieat their
conduct has been bad enough to condemn
them to perpetual obscurity; but it was left
to the New Hampshire Democrats to demon
strate the possibilities in the way of revolu
tionary proceedings of which the party is ca
llable. The discreet Democrats everywhere
look with horror upon their extraordinary op
eratious, and the more prudent journals of
l he party promp'ly eon Jenin them and dis
claim responsibility for them.
New Hampshire politics on botli sides have
always been sut generis; there has been an
intensity of partisanship which is unknown
*11 .'iLitltoS 1C33 Cljuauj UIVIUCU, UI1U bUIISCVJUilll
)y less hotly contested. The lines are closely
drawn and all the devices of political warfare
are cultivated to the greatest possible degree
of efficiency. There is in this debatable laud
a fervor of party fealty and a closeness of can
vassing which are strikingly illustrated by the
fa t that for twenty years the majority on
either side has rarely reached three thousand.
Under these circumstances it was fairly
enough to be expected that, when the Demo
crats came into power lastspring.there would
be some pretty decisive and pronounced party
legislation. Few, however, could have an
ticipated such utter shamelessness as was
manifested.
The legislative majority and the Governor
were managed by edicts of the State Central
Committee, who settled in their secret meet
lugs the whole course of procedure in every
particular. Contested seats were given to
party friends in the most arbitrary and outra
geous fashion without even the gtace of an
apparent impartiality. The state was re
districted under a system of the baldest ger
rymandering, so as to insure a Democratic
majority in future legislatures against any or
dinary Republican majority in the state at
large. Republican state and county officials
weie removed by address of the legislature to
the Governor without any consideration of
their official merits but solely on party
grounds, and, in general, everything conceiv
able was done to place party followers in offi
cial position and to secure a perpetuation o'
power. It would seem as if this arbitrary
abuse of power were sufficiently shocking, but
there was one lower depth of infamy attain
able. and these New Hampshire Democrats,
utterly regardless of decency and the remon
strances of their brethren outside the state,
promptly sought it. Tuey abolished their
supreme court—one of the most respectable
judicial bodies in the nation, whose decisions
have long been high legal authority— thus
unseating all the judges. They then estab
lisbed two courts, one for the trial of causes
and one for the settlement of law questions,
and of course filled the places with needy
Democratic lawyers. This action, striking
at the very foundations of our institutions,
awakened a general cry of remonstrauce
from all quar'.ers, which availed nothing.
.Secure in their temporary power and careless
of the future they perpetiated this oflence
against ail official decencies, which every in
telligent and patriotic matt of their own
party denounces as an outrage. If any one
thing in all our nation should be kept more
sacred from the influences of partisan strife
Ilian all others, it is the judiciary—that sate
guard and bulwark to the stability of our
social and political organization. Set these
New Hampshire vandals dared lay profane
hands upon this ark of safety. Could polit
ical maduess and recklessness go farther?
It behooves all good citizens oi all parties
in the face of these developments to pause
and consider what they portend. If a set of
men, accidentally in power, will perform
such antics before high heaven, where
would they s'op if they had greater power?
We are sometimes inclined to be discon
tented with some of the action of the Repub
lican party, forgetting that absolute perfec
tion is impossible and that we must be con
tent to seek the highest attainable good.
Let us look to New Hampshire and contem
plate the alternative; then let us take heart
at our comparative excellence and see to it
that we keep our own party pure and decent
and invoke the support of all good men who
love their country to it as the great conserva
tive organization which shall protect the
nation against the revolutionary and de
structive tendencies -whose development in
New Hampshire has been so alarming.
The Dominion papers consider the proposed
reciprocal treaty so much of a living and
practical question that several of them pub
Jish the letter ot Speaker Blaine, and com
ment with candor on its merits. The St.
John Telegraph publishes the part of the let
ter referring to the treaty and comments at
length. In referring to the statement of Mr.
Blaine that the treaty“embraces the admission
of Canadian vessels to the American registry
and the full enjoyment of the United States
coast and lake trade,” it says that the writer
probably had in his mind what would be a
lair return for the advantages conferred noon
the United States by tbe treaty rather that
the return actually made. In other words,
it says that Dominion vessels are not admit
ted to the full enjoyment of United States
coast and lake tiade. The Teleyraph, how
ever, fails to estimate the importance of our
reviving ship-building interest to our people
when it puts it against free timber and coal
and Canadian teriitory lor a market—which
we already have to a great exteut.
Washington specials arc telling us how
drcadlully the bus.ness in tbe departments is
getting behind because of the recent reduc
tion of the force. It is rather too early to
begin the attack upon Congress to restore tbe
clerks to^heir places; and, besides, the opera
tion is lather transparent at best, for if tbe
clerks in tbe departments at Washington
worked in earnest full days from seven or
eight o’clock iu tbe morning until six at
night, there might be a further reduction of
tbe present force, and then there would be
ample season for vacation.
The Bekcher-Tilton Scandal.—Tbe Bos
ton Journal of last evening says that “Air.
James Red path (who is the “gentleman from
Boston” referred to in the Associaied Press dis
patch of this morniug) emphatically denies
that lie brought “overtures of settlement” from
Air. Beecher in order to effect a compromise;
and explains tbe mystery of his appearance “at
a very early hour” iu “Mr. Tilton’s bouse” by
(lie fact that lie is the old time friend of both
Air. and Airs. Tilton, and is a frequent guest at
their bouse—as be was on this occasion. Air.
Redpath stayed with Tilton both before and
after bis visit to Mr. Beecher at Peekski'l,
whom be left Boston to visit on lecture busi
ness exclusively. He says the only “overture”
that lie made to Mr. Tilton at “Parker’s re
staurant iu Willoughby street” was 10 urge
1 >■ ni to take seme chops with his coffee, and
that if there is anything derogatory to (lie
character of any of the parties to this controv
ersy in that suggestion he is willing to bear the
brunt of it,”
A Case of Kidnapping.
A CHILD STOLEN—$20,000 DEMANDED AS A
HANSOM.
Tlie history of the recent kidnapping case in
Philadelphia shows the plot to have been most
diabolical in its nature, planned by unscrupu
lous, shrewd men, with tbe apparent sole pur
pose of enriching themselves by pocketing the
reward which they knew must be offered by
the afflicted father. For several days previous
to July 1st two stange men have visited tbe
locality of the residence, Washington laue,
Germantown, of Mr. Christian K.iRoss—of
the firm of Ross, Sliott Co., wholesale dry
goods merchants on Market street, Philadel
phia—and cultivated thejacquaintance of his
two litt’e boys, by meaus of conversation, pres
ents of candy, etc. On tbe day mentioned they
came again iu a carriage and invited the little
fellows to ride, which invitation they were not
loth to accept. After having driven for some
distauee tbe oldest one of the iwo little ones
was asked to get out of the carriage ami buy a
few packages of firecrakers. Hoy like, be most
willingly complied No sooner bad he disap
peared in the store than the two men lashed
the horse and made away with the iitile four
year old, whose name is Charles Brewster Ross,
and who has ne^e. since been seen by those
who knew him. although the most scrutinizing
search has been made by the father and the de
tective*. On tbe 4th the following advertise
ment was published.
“Three hundred dollars will be paid to the
person returning to 5 North Sixth street a
small boy, four years old, having loug, curly
fiax‘»n hair, hazel eyes, clear, light skin, and
round face; dressed in a brown linen suit with
short skirt, broad brimmed straw bat and
laced shoes. The child was lost from German
town ou Wednesday afternoon (1st iust.,) be
tween four and five o’clock.”
This bringing no response, auotber adver
tisement was printed ou the 6th, and in the
“personal culumu” of the Ledger on the 7th tbe
kidnappers replied as follows:
“Ross—We he ready to negotiate.”
Ou tbe same day the father, Mr. Ross, re
ceived an anonymous letter through the post
offlee, iu which it was stated that little Charlie
would be returned for $20,000 It also went on
to say that the boy was iu good hands; that the
treatment given him was careful; that it had
cost the parties a great deal of money to get
him, and that they could uot think of return
ing him for less than $20 000.
Tbe father returned tue following ansvver
through the Ledger personals:
“lioss will come to terms to the extent of his
ability.”
Another anonvuious letter wa« at once re
ceived by Mr. Ross, stating that the parties
who held the child would not part with it for a
smaller sum thau that already named, and
to this, through the press, the father respond
ed :
“Ross is willing, have not got it, am doing
my best to raise it.”
Thus the matter stood at last accounts, not
the least clew having been obtained, although
the postoffice and newspaper offices have been
watched every moment. The family is heart
broken at the absence of the child, aud the
firm to which Mr Ross belongs, having lost
heaviiy in the panic, he is unable to nay at
once the sum demanded by the blackmailers.
It is hoped that he will uot be obliged to uo so,
but that it will be the kidnappers who will
be obliged to pay the penalty worthy of their
inhumanity. Mr. Ross asserts that he knows
of no enemy in the world who could be actuated
by reveuge, aud therefore the motive of the
villains must be mercenary. This is indicated
by the fiendish letters he has received,of which
the following are extracts:
“We know you are not worth much money,
but we are aware that you have rich friends of
whom you can borrow. It you love money
better than your child its blood be on your own
head.”
“Auy attempts to ascertain the child’s hiding
place will result in its eutire annihilation
We will ‘turu the child up’ on our own terms.”
“We know our business aud we are going to
fight it out.”
The circumstances of the case are somewhat
remarkable throughout. For five days previ
ous to July J—the dayou which the child was
stolen—these same men were seen around the
neighborhood, aud each day approached the
two children and spoke to them. It is pre
sumed that they would have.made off with the
youngest, little, Charlie Ross, several days be
fore the 1st insiaut, but at each time there
happened to be some oue passing aloug the
laue.
A Mistake.
To the Editor of the Press:
An article in your issue of yesterday headed
“A former Bruuswick pastor in trouble,” we
thiuk must relate to some person other than
the former pastor of the Mason street Unitarian
society, the Rev. Wm. Ellery Copeland, and
thronly clergyman by the name of Copeland
that ever ministered in Bruuswick.
The “Rev. Lloyd Copeland” spoken of in the
extract from the Indianapolis News, we think
can have nothing in common but his last name
with the gentleman above alluded to.
The liev. Win. Ellery Copeland left Bruns
wick a few years since and located in Missouri
at first, afterwards going to Kausas. He now
resides in Emporia, Kausas, and is engaged in
preaching and iu teaching in the State Normal
School, located there.
The writer has received letters from him very
recently from that place; and feels that the
good name of Mr. Copeland requires this word
of explanation. He made many warm friends
while iu Brunswick and there was never a ru
mor of wreng respecting him, so tar as the
writer has heard, either while in Bruuswick or
after his departure.
He was young, enthusiastic and always ready
to forward auything that commended itself to
him as good, and there are not a few who
would be sorry that auy taint should attach to
his character. A. V. Me tcalf.
Important to Seamen.—As there has been
a good deal of inquiry of late relative to the
laws in regard to the shipping aud discharge of
seamen, we print the following official circular:
Treasury Department, (
Washington, D. C., June 22, 1874. f
To Collectors of Customs:
The act of Congress appended hereto is pub
lished lor your information. A copy should be
posted iu each custom house.
Very respectfully,
J . F. 11 ARTLEY,
Acting Secretary.
Beit enacted by the Senate an l House of Rep
resentatives of the United States of America, in
Congress assembled, That none of the provis
ions of an act entitled “An act to authorize
the appointment of shipping commissioners by

to superintend the shipping and discharge of
seamen engaged in merchant ships belonging
to the United States, aud for the further pro
tection of seamen” shall apply to sail or steam
vessels eugaged in the coastwise trade, except
the coastwise trade between the Atlantic and
Pacific coasts, or in the lake goiug trade,
touebiug at foreign ports or otherwise, or in
the trade between the United States and the
British North American possessions, or in any
ease where the seamen are by custom or agree
ment entitled to participate iu the profits or re
sult of a cruise, or voyage.
Approved June 9, 1874.
The Stale Muster.
The following letter gives the reason why the
state muster cannot bet deferred:
Brunswick, July 13,1874,
Hon. Benj. Kingsbury, Jr:
Dear Sir:—1 have carefully considered your
campment of the state militia changed to some
other date than that already fixed, in order not
to conflict with the anniversary exercises of
the Odd Fellows, and while my personal incli
nations lead me to favor your proposition, a re
gard for the interest of tile troops committed to
my charge compels me to adhere to the time
already announced. It is my duty to see that
the money appropriated by the state'for milita
ry purposes is expended in the most profitable
manner, and also that the comfort and welfaie
of the men called into the field shall be regard
ed. These considerations, which led me to ap
point the time must advantageous for the in
terests of the service without regard to jiersoual
preference, must still coutrol my action.
Regretting much that I am unable to com
ply with a request which, if it were a matter of
courtesy or convenience alone,would he readily
granted, I ant sir, with high regard,
Your obedient servant,
Joshua L. Chamiiereain.

Pulmonic Syrup, Sea Weed Tonic, and

These medicines have undoubtedly performed more !
cures of Consumption than anv other remedy known ,
to the American public. They are compounded of
vegetable ingredients, and contain nothing which can
be injurious to the hutfRm constitution.
Ot her remedies advertised as cures for Consump
tion, probably contain opium, wuicu is a somewhat
dangerous drug in all cases, and if taken freely by
consumptive patients, it must do great injury; for
its tendency is to coniine the morbid matter in the
system, which of course, must make a cure impossi
ble.
Srhenck’s Pulmonic Syrup is warranted not to
contain a particle of opium: It is composed of pow
erful but harmless herbs, which act oil the lungs,
liver, stomach anil blood, and thus correct all mor
bid secretions,and expel all the diseased matter from
the body. These are the only means by which Con
sumption can be cured, and as Sebenek’s Pulmonic
Syrup, Sea Weed Tonic, and Mandrake Pills nre the
only medicines which operate in this way. it is obvi
ous they are the only genuine cure for Pulmonary
Consumption. Each bottle of this inva'uable rnedi
C'ue is accompanied by full directions.
