TUESDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 19. We do not read anonymous letters and common nations. The name and address of the writ are In all cases Indispensable, not necessarily for ublloa tion but as a guaranty of good faith. We cannot undertake to return or preserve com munications that are not nsed. Kvkey regular attache of the Pbess Is furnished with a Cord oertifleate signed by Stanley Pullen, Editor, All railway, steamboat and hotel managers will confer a favor upon ns by demanding credentials of every person olalmlng to represent our journal. Another Question_Settled. As a purely political journal the Argus has been a dismal failure, but when it has left the political for the religious field it has made its mark—among Democratic papers. It has not hesitated to rush in where ever the pious and upright editor of the Bangor Com mercial might fear to tread, and it has set tled a good many religious questions after the manner of the judge who proposed to make sprinkling a valid torm of baptism by issuing an order of the court to that effect. It has never hesitated to take the responsi bility of correcting every little mistake made by Providence in the ordering of events, as for example, when’lt hanged Mordecai, prob ably under the mistaken idea that he was a Republican official, and promoted Hainan, who wasn’t'so very bad a specimen of a Democrat considering his opportunities, to the vacant post of advisor to the king. Recently our esteemed contemporary has taken occasion to put itself on record as ac cepting the Bible account of tee creation, and at the same time settle at once and for ever the question of just what the late Col. Adam was paid by his Badness the Devil and aspirant to Supreme Executive Power as the price of admitting sin and the Dem ocratic party into the world. Speaking of a case of “Republican bribery” (name and place not given) it says: A young man has a wife and children and hi* mother to support. He has a $200 mort gage on his farm, which be has been working early and late, for years, to lift. But his ex penses have eateo up his earnings, so that to pay the interest has been the utmost he could do. A briber knew his staigbtened circum. stances, and his ambition to be out of debt. Like the serpent in Eden, he went to the youDg man and made him an offer of fifty dol lars to vote the Republican ticket, and if he would not accept that to make a return propo sition. It was a terrible temptation. Passing by the case of the young man of neither name nor habitation, we wish to call special attention to the serpent and to Adam. Up to the time when the snake approached Adam we aro led to suppose that the Democratic party was solid; there had never been a split; there had never been a bolt; there had never been the 0 least necessity for counting out a candidate. But a change was at hand, and Adam fell. The serpent found him when he was in “straightened circumstances;” in fact when hs hadn’t a cent in the world. He offered him “fifty dollars to vote the Republican ticket.” Still Adam hesitated; he pre served his self-respect and he said to the Devil, “No sir, that offer is declined. You must raise the bid.” But this the Devil declined to do, and prudent ly suggested to Adam to make a “return proposition.” We are thus left in doubt as to what Adam’s exact price was; but having the excellent Democratic authority of the Argus for the belief that he was a Democrat in good standing, we may safely assert that he demanded from two dollars and a half to three dollars more than the price named by the serpent. “Every man has his price” said the English statesman so freely quoted by Gov. Plaisted in his speeches in the late campaign, and while it is humiliating to be obliged to acknowledge that Adam “sold out” it is still a comfort to know within three dollars just what he got. Tb6 Argus has anticipated the revisers of the Old Testa . jaeoL._, .__ A volume which is said to “constitute one of the most fearful arraignments ever made against a Christian nation” is coming immediately from the press of G. P. Put nam’s Sons. It is entitled “Spoiling the Egyptians. A Tale of Shame. Told from the British Blue Books.” The author is J. Seymour Keay, an'Englishman. He at tempts to explain the causes which have produced the present state of affairs in Egypt, and to make clear some of the grounds for the bitter hatred of Europeans which found expression in the Alexandr ia mas sacre. The mayor of Char’eston (S. C.) having just discovered that there are not any slaves in that section in these days, and that the custom of ringing bells and beating the tat too to warn them off the streets would be better honored in the breach than in the ob servance, has prohibited the tintinnabulary exercises. But the people of the south are eminently conservative; they have a “Lost Cause” and cherish it; but they don’t pro pose to have any lost customs to keep it company. As a consequence the Mayor is in hot water. Oub Democratic opponents seem to have done all their rejoicing in advance over the calculation as to the prospects of their car. rying a majority in the next Congress, and the prospects now appears to be slowly and gradually unfolding that the Republicans will be able to hold their own in the lower House and to obtain a clear majority in the Senate. As usual, therefore, the Democrat ic politicians let the cat out of the bag too soon, and thus spoiled their own game. Wolseley having used up Arabi, and rendered the co-operation of Turkish troops wholly unnecessary, Lord Dufferin has been instructed at last to sign that much mooted military convention. As a parallel, it will now be in order with some enterpris ing ship-builder to begin looking around for Noah in reference to a contract for the con struction of that ark. The arrangement would be quite as timely. The temperance issue is assuming a goo deal of prominence in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Illinois, as well as in Ohio and Indiana. The temperance people hope to have a ma jority in the next Minnesota Legislature, and both in Minnesota and Wisconsin the liquor interests are organizing for a strug gle. _ Bridgton News: The election of Monday settles beyond recall that controversy be tween the Governor and Council. “The ex ecutive,” as used in our constitution and laws will hereafter be understood to mean “the executive branch of the government,” and “the supreme executive” the chief of that department. Portland Globe: The more the election returns are studied the firmer becomes the convictions of many of our esteemed Demo cratic exchanges that a party with two plat forms; two sets of orators and two boards of managers, is not from the very nature of things, predisposed to inspire oonfidence in the public. _ Dheleep Singh, once the maharajah of the Punjaub, the possessor of the Kohinoor diamond and of vast wealth, has for many years past lived the life of a quiet country gentleman in England with a large annuity from the government. He Intends, it is said, to seek an election to the British house of commons. Boston Traveller: The explanation is made that the Independent Kepublican movement in Maine failed for lack of lead ers. Our own impression was that its greatest lack was followers. It was a tad pole party, all head. De. Siemans, the French electrician, sees the doom of the steam engine, except as a waiter upon its successful rival, electricity. All that steam does, Dr. Siemans believes, will be done better and easier by electricity. Aftek his retirement from the army Gen Sherman intends t reside in St. Louis, Hartford Courant: Mr. Blaine is a pri vate citizen at present, but he is still taking an interest in politics, and the result of this year's election in his State must be pe culiarly gratifying to him. Senator Vest of Missouri believes that whoever is nominated by the Ropublicans in 18S4 will make it warm for the Democracy. ThG experience of 22 years has not been lost on Senator Vest. Lewiston Journal: The Argus, before election, called the Fusion campaign a “un ion canvass;” it now speaks of the gain in Auburn as a “Democratic gain.” The many friends of Mr. Skysim Skywin kle will regret to hear that justice has jailed him at Indianapolis, for drunkenness. Having got through with Maine, the Boston Post is whistling on the Democrats of New Hampshire to victory. Magazine Notices.

The Test of True Love. [Chicago Tribune.! “Welcome home, Pansy.” Dapplevale was at its prettiest this sweet June day as it nestled cozily among the hills that towered above it on every side. Down in the shady glen where the village church stood, almost hidden by the cypress trees whose great boughs of green were swept caressingly against the sides of the modest structure, Pansy Per kins was standing, and as Ethelbert Pettingill spoke the words with which this chapter opens, her face lighted up with a radiant 2x4 smile that was beautiful in its sad exDanae of terri tory “Come to me, Pansy,” he said. It was Etbelbert’s voice, tender, gentle, that spoke, yet with something in its tone that made the girl pause in her excited, feverish walk up and down, and she pressed her hands to her throbbing temples, looking at him with large, bright, pathetic eyes. But he stretched out bis hand and she came to him. He pressed his arm around her waist and held her to his breast a moment in Bilence. Presently Pansy spoke. “It is very hot, is it not, darling?” she said. “Yes,” replied Ethelbert, “and it is getting late, and we should be going home—” but as he spoke the girl looked up at him with those handsome dark eyes that bad witched so many men. “Do you love me?” she said. “Passionately, my angel,” was the reply in tremulous tones. “And will you buy me some ice cream?” she continued Ethelbert felt his heart throb against his sus pender, and for an instant he cculd not reply. But the momentary agitation was soon over, and he spoke out in clear, mellow tones. “I will do it with pleasure,” he said. The peachy cheek of the girl was laid close to his now, and the velvety lips kissed him tenderly back of the left ear. And then, turning her head slightly, Pansy whispered to herself: “I have not lost my grip.” I London Telegraph ] The Upas Valley Story Exploded. Another romantic tradition has been refated by Dr. Otto Kuntze’s discovery that the lethal capacities ot Pakamaran, the renowned Java nese Death-V alley, are as utterly fabulous as the Norwegian Kraaken, or Ilichard of Glou cester's hump. It is no longer permitted to ns to believe that the effects of the snbtle poison given off by the “Deadly Upas Tree” have,be strewn the dismal vale with countless carcasses of savage beasts, serpents and birds, or that a certain death awaits any foolhardy traveler at tempting to cross it; for the eminent German explorer lias paid Pakamaran an exhaustive visit, and reports it to be as healthy as any other part of the island. In the way of corpses, he did not see so much as a dead fly within its precincts. He describes it as a sma'l circular depression in a gorge of the Dieng Mountains, about seven square meters iu size and forlorn of vegetation. It is approached by two foot paths, winding downward from the bills by which it is surrounded. By one of these paths Dr. Kuntze entered the Death Valley, despite the entreaties of his guides and servants, one of whom repeatedly strove to hold him back by force, and, having traversed Pakamaran in ev ery direction, quitted it by the other path. The i atives had assured him that he would find the valley choked up by skeletons, as even the swiftest birds liyine above it would drop down stone-dead, slain by its poisonous exhalations. In vain, however, did be look about for a single bone; nor could he detect the least unpleasant odor. Dr. Kuntze pronounces Pakamaran to beau imposture, the offspring of ignorance and superstition. Unable to dispute his sentence, we are bound, not altogether without regret, io relegate the death-dealing vale to the limbo of exploded myths. Why His Manner Changed. Billings met Dr. Squint. “Hallo, my friend,” exclaimed the doctor, “I am glad to see you. Around hunting for news, I sup pose. You reporters are always on the go. Vou are the best reporter in Arkansaw. Say, I am going to have a little gathering of friends at my house to-morrow night; and my wife who is a great admirer of you, by the way sends you a special invitation. Let’s have a bottle of wine. Say, there, waiter, bring us a bottle of Piper Heidsick.” “I suppose you have heard, doctor, thatl am no longer connected with the Daily Bloom.” “No.” “Yes, I have retired from the newspaper business. When do you say you want me to come around?” "O, any time,” replied the doctor with an evident change of manner. “Say, waiter nev er mind the wine. Bring us two beers.” A Russian View of American Pros perity. [St. Petersburg Novoe Vremia.] The perusal ol the annual budget of the United States gives us great pleasure, We find that its income is ever increasing, its ex penses are decreasing, and its debts are con stantly sinking. As regards financial and economical affairs in general, America is the opposite of Europe. In Europe, and particu larly in Russia, an abnormal financial condi tion has become a matter of course; so much so that we cannot help looking on the healthy state of finances in the United States as a mira cle In state husbandry. The Americans have reached this happy state of affairs through a stringent control of public affairs, freedom of private initiative, and a protective tariff. The annual expenses of the United States of late years have been from #160,000.000 to $170,0()0, 000. In 1881 the income was $360,000,000, and in 1882 $403,500,000. Thus they had over $200,000,000 available for diminising the pub lio debt. From the European point of view this looks like an impossible thing, and yet it is a fact. The American arsny and navy do not consume a third of the whole income, as is the case in Europe, but only a small portion of it. The civil war impoverished the United States, but since then they have had profound peace. The States recovered, improved their husbandry, encouraged industry, and became such. A high tariff on imported goods largely increased me income oi me united states ana served to encourage national industry. After a while a financial crisis came and European economists prophesied that on account of the high tariff the united States would suffer stag nation of trade and industry and general finan cial rain. But the Americans did not mind the European false prophets, and declined to receive cheap European goods offered on the condition of free trade. The result is that now the Americans get $220,000,000 in customs du ties, and besides are able to compete in trade and industry with the foremost of European countries. Au immense surplus of income over ex penses enables the United States to lower the public debt progressively. In Europe public debts grow as rapidly as mushrooms, while iu America they melt like snow. According to tbe calculations of the Secretary of the Treas ury, the United States will pay its public debt | in nine years, it me present prosperity con I tinnes. What a salutary example the country of the Yankees gives to the Old World countries! Ii tens Mw lain.
