Williams, of Lafay ette, will probably be nominated to-day to the Fifth Treasury Anditorehlp. Connecticut Ii gathering in the fruits of the campaign at a lively rate. Both the London and Liverpool Consulates were se cured by two nutmeggers. The Consulates pay ?G,000 salary each. The difference between Secretary Lamar and Hajes' administration in "honoring reo els," as the organs put it, is that Hayes heaped the honors on live ones, while Limtr confined his respects to a dead one. The collection in Dr. BunderJand's Church was ten times bigger last Sunday than U3ual. It happened in this way : That "wicked Buffalo Democrat," now President of the United Slates, took a Dew in the church, and the crush now is in that direction. TnE Chicago Tribune places Italy, Brazil and Mexico among first class missions, and says that five first-class missions have gone to the South. There are only four first class missions, viz , EcgTand, France, Germany and Russia, and of these the North received two and the South tio. One of these latter goes to Maryland not verv ranch "South." Like Baltimore, Boston and other Eastern cities St. Louis has caught the contagion and is wrestling with the gas question. The press of that city are taking a utrong hand in the matter, and the result will probably be a considerable reduction in the price of this illuminating fluid. Our Indianapolis company have recently lowered the pries of gn?, which theydid Toluntarily, an example our sister cities would do well to imitate before a pressure of public opinion compels them to do so. Pkf.sim:jct Ci.evf-i.ano yestercuy attended church for the first time since he took the oath of oSiee. Chicago Tribune. Yes! Here is another place where the Democrat always makes a mistake. Now, Jim Blaine would have been pounding away at the church door long before, sun up the Sunday after his Inauguration. The preacher would have had his hands fall to have kept him cat of the pulpit, and in the afternoon Jim would have run the Sunday-school. Yes, Republicans make batter Presidents to noodwink the religious folks than the Demo crats. The Republican organs should instruct their "Washington correspondents to agree upen the tame stories before they wire them "West at night. Now, yesterday morning one of the morning organs published the follow ing from its Washington representative : Mr. Hendricks hat nothing to say about Magee. He is doubtless jealous because he was net asked to use his influence In the appoint ment. The other morning organ puts it up this way: The public here are inclined to treat this as a alapatllfindrlcks; and hearina: thl, your corres pondent sought out the Vice President and asked nit opinion of to-day's tatch of api-ointments. ilr. Hendricks looked up and pleasantly said: "Master's appointment is a good one. Helsa worthy gentleman, an old friend of mine, and will honor the poniton to which he is called." . The report that Mrs Garfield will Boon re marry is received with no surprise by her friends, who teem to have anticipated this news. The use she w ill make of her 00,000 acquired as the widow of the lamented President is of more interest to the public Her proposed matrimonial departure will be a disappointment to these who nad hoped to take a hand in Mrs. Gartisld'a disposition of a large amount of her money. The in tended husband will probab'y be a large factor in managing the funds, and will watch family interests perhaps with an eye to mutual benefit. The Jake Thoaipon episode has loosened Hie b'ooöy abirt to a degree fast nothing in jeirs has doDe; nevertheless we Oo not believe It can con tinue.

It la not a qnestiea of Totes, though it ought to coat Democracy tens cf thonaodr. It la a qutstioa wbethr Americans sha'l discriminate between treason and loyalty, between honorable 6Q!dler who went Into tbe rebellion and pusillaminons scoundrel. Nor Is there any bloody i-iirt about It except In tüe minds and months of thosato whom the war was an offense, and who can not bear to e a soldier nor hear him talk of his ser vices. Journal. Now, all of this sounds very pretty, not "Withstanding the rhetoric is cot particularly brilliant The Journal's talk about "discrim inating between treason and loyalty" would come with tetter grace if it wai not a notori ous fact that Republican administrations first saluted treason and hastened to dis criminate in favor of those who had been engaged in the rebellion. One prominent r bei General was called into a Republican Cabinet, and another sent upon a foreign mi:icD. Marty others were given plasms of honor and trust. JUNKETING AT PUBLIC EXPENSE. We referred the other day to that wonder ful committee o' Republicans who went "junketing" to fcaa Francisco, New Orleans and Mexico, to spy out the land aa l ascer tain why our commerce with Central and South America was eo trilling and small. The United States Treasury foots the bill. They went in a palace car as long as they could find any rails to run on. They found them for about forty-one days, and paid $35 per day for the car, to say nothing of othsr expenses. The Chicago Times hunted up the details of this disgraceful a'Jair, and we call the attention of our readers to eome of them. The expenses for three months ran to $5 3U 2., and these are exclusive of salaries, which run at the rate of 57,500 for each of tvoof the committee and .,C00 for the other one. The Secretary of State of the lasi Republican administration has certify d to the correct- cess of the accounts. So the entire affair bears the exclusive brand of Republicanism. Among the items we find a hotel bill in New York for iVJO. The committee tarried a leng time there t5 find out about commer cial affairs in Central America. The com mission got to Philadelphia on the ISth and hit on the 2Uh, and its hotel bill was $72 7s: but this sesnis to be supplemented by some other items. For example, on the 20th of October Commissioner Thatcher's expenses, amounting to C5, were paid. The coai misiion came from Philadelphia to Chicago, and then went to Baltimore, whre it de posited ;2 in the palm of the Board of Trade porter, presumably for the commercial in formation he furnished. The stenographer's bill for the session of the commission in New York was $211, and the total expenses for the month were $511 25 The steno grapher at Philadelphia cost $147.0), and the stenographer at Baltimore $0-3. The disburs ing clerk found it inconvenient to carry large sums cf money loose in hi3 trousers pockets, and he invested the modest sum of 42.50 in a "pecketbook for funds." The telegraph bill for November was 5110.82, and lor Decjniber $37 05. Another hotel bill in 2ew York, November 10, is charged up at $51.40. On parting with their affectionate car employes at Mexico they tipped them S ii&in to tae tune of $1". Car riage hire for five days in the City ci Mexico cost $95, which seems not unreasonable, as they had to make a good many visits to the public offices. They tipred the hotel serv ants $10 worth, and htd $ JO worth of .short hand wrk done 'J he commission spent two weeks in the City of Mexico, acd the hotel bill of Commissioner Reynolds, of Mis souri, was '.2; that of Commissioner Thatcher, of Kansas, -..(. and Secretary W. E. Curtis, of Chicago, incurred a hotel bill of f U8 in two wetks. Bsidts this, the com mission in its corporate capacity had a par lor at $10 a dey, or $140. There was a good deal of money spent be tween New York and San Francisco and from thenCe to Mexico ia "supplies," which included all sorts of eating and drinking, extras and substantial. The commission evidently euffered for want of food between San Francisco and Mciico, for mere ample supplies were provided on the return trip. Tje two men and the boy left the Mexican capital December 14 with öi worth ot pro visions. The next day additional supplies worth $12 were procured. It cost -3 to switch the car El Paso, and ?150 for tickets to New Orleans additional tu the 35 a day for the car. At El Paso tho commissary de partment added 22 worth of provisions and 1.50 worth was tdded at Houston, and the commission got to New Orlean cn the Jls', so that two men and a boy ale an even 1C0 worth cf fjod i:i a ctk, and at New Orleaos aain the car posters were tipped 15. a the wiy from Houston to New Orleans, in the inter est of rigic economy, the corani:33ion sp:;t 7 f0 telegraphing &b;ut transportation for their car and ?i lor a carriage to go and see about it in person. Miscellaneous meals at New Orleans coat $2 J.50, besides a hotei bill for eleven days of $374 70, and the hotel servants were tipped $10. The stenographer at New Orleans cost ?:)1. 70, and type writer work 22 25. From New Orleans the Secre tary sent an abstract of the Commissioners' repoit to a paper in New York and one in Chicago, which appeared in print before the report itself was opened in the State Depart meat. Tickets to Havana cost 175. The commission paid 1,417.50 for its Pullman car, being .".5 a day for forty-one and cne-half days. Altogether it was a very delightful trip to the three Republicans. We would like to know what gocd resulted from it. Perhaps after the Republican organs set through with'OId Jake Thompson," as they call him, they will demonstrate the benefits to accrue to the country from this expensive junketing trip of these Republicans at Government expense. DESERTING THE "GRAND OLD PARTY." In Indiana and other States of the North the colored Republican is gradually getting his eyes open to th fact that the whites of his party have been simply using him as a tool. A4 they bad for him to do was to vote. Thn was amusing, perhap?, for a few years, but the dividends were not large when the timo came around to parcel out the spoils. The whites took all the offices, while the col ored man looked on with his finger in his mouth. During the la3t year the colored Republicans have been breaking away from the party harness and uniting with the Democrat;. Not only is this true in Indiana and other Northern States, but we find the disaffection has reached the colored men of Texas. . A Dallas, Tex., corresondent aajs that this break in the Republican ranks is taking dace in that State. Before the elec tion the white Republicans instilled into the minds of the negroes that they would be re 1 enslaved in the event of Democratic success. The course of events since March I has bsen such es to remove the delusion, and the ne gro's are becoming politically mutinous to their former white leaders and coachem. It Eferas that a very intelligent colored preacher, by the came of Carson, is heading the Texas revolt from Republicanism. He la regarded as the foremost colored man in Texas in potr t of education add influence. The Dallas Herald of recent date contains the following very remarkable letter from him: To the colored people of the State oT Texas: Tb!s Is to rtrtily ttiat J, W. K.

TGE COJdING OF CHOLERA.. Ths birk Sonna.Tg, with eevenl css?3 of cholera aboard, has appeared at Silen), Mat5., where she undertook to make a land ing, but W83 forced out into the stresm by the authoriti3. This is but the forerunner of what will soon be a not uncommon oc currence, and our country can not Ii(pe to -rx the dread scourue. Bat we caa ward off" its ievere3t ravages by immediately placing every city, town and hamlet in the best possible sanitary condition. No time should be lost in doing this, and our Boards of Health ought everywhere to take hold cf the matter actively and see that needed preparations are made for the visit of cholera. The streets and alleys ia all the citits are in a most filthy condition. Tte garbsge accumulated during the long montha of cold weather is encountered in tho alleys, on vacant lots, and -often iu tb? ttreets of Indianapolis, while piles of otr.il and rubbish are a com mon sight in backyards. Unle33 it is re moved ere the warm weather sets in and starts decomposition this parbage will soon be masses of rottenness so foul as to poison the air we breathe and water we drink, thus in itself breeding disease. If cholera comes wiihsnch conditions prevailing to fivor its epread we can look tor a pestilence o sweep over this land such as Americi has never known b?f re. Why it is tha1. our people are so indiffer ent, in view of tho e tuition, ia one ot the Incomprehar.slblH things so cf ten met with in the face of zrran dangers to human life. That we are to ba visited by the chol'.a, vhich has beau such a phgue in the eastern hemisphere, i3 generally believed by the people, and the majority of physicians say we can not escape its prevalence incur midt the coming summer. But that they will take the needed precautionary measures to make the ravages of the disease s light as possible is another matter. The msjoriiy prefer waiting until the eccurge is here, or at least to run the rik cf its not appearing at all. The authorities, therefore, should act at once; act S3 energetically and efficiently aa possible in having yard, alleys and streets cleaned, and in taking such other step3 as are needed toward off disease. Thi3isthe 1st of April. Let the sanitary work be pros ecuted vigorously until cleanliness of our surroundings shall make ua comparatively safe. THE SILVER QUESTION'.

P.-fsidett Jackson was the hrst President to fulJy comprehend the meaning of our Presidential citations. He understood, and correctly, too, that the voters expressed their will at the ballot box arM that the majority ecusht to run ih Government ncoordin t tttlr understanding of the Constitution. When he went Into office he carried with birn into office under him the men who had voted for his electors. He knew that the men who voted for him did not mean for thote who voted agamst him to remain In control of the Government. That would have been the minority ruling the majority, and thus moocrchy would have taknu the place cf the KepuMic. Jackson understood that his election meant the eelection of his frierd3 and net his enemies to the minor offices under him. He did ri.ht to dis charge the defeated party and to install the victorious party. The Republic can only last on this rmis.

Tae .civil service law was pern.itted to b9 parsed by the Republicans, as they well knew there was nothing in the Jaw to prevent them iiot:i reaiovicg and appointing whom they pUas-ed. Bat no tb-y use it to scire Dem ocrats into LfepiriK Republicans in office aller the paop.'e have 4id turn them out not merely the President acd those whm he may appoint, but all thjse holding under his immediate appointees. The election did not mean a fat postolfice for some man in the community and turn for the workers to stand an examination for place under him. but it meant that he is simply the e?ent of the pfople.to put them out. The civil service law is not a penal law except ai to political assessments noth ing else. Any law that is not a penal law is simply a permlsiive law. That is, permits the party authorized to do a certain thing m a certain way. In other words, the. law in reality neither commands nor prohibits, but eimply authorizes, permits or sanctions.

It i understood that the pestponemer t is made that the board may acquaint themselves thoroughly with the merits of the respective candidates for the Secretaryship, the great priza for which a number of the Esculapian disciples are no contending. The Sanitary News, speaking of the possible removal of Dr. Eider at tbe coming meeting of the board, eays: "If Dr. Elder is removed, he may well rest upon the laurels he has won a a sanitarian. Always active in advanc'ng the sanitary interests of Indiana, he has been no Jess active in na tional sanitary council. His siuitary in spection of all the schcols in Indiana stands to-day as tbe brightest accomplishment as yet achieved in that direction. When the new Sfcretary takes up the duties of the office, he will have reason to feel grateful to Dr. Elder for the strong impulso which h ' has given to public htalth work in Indiana."

Tne assembly hall, ha taid, would teat about 4,(0: perrons, and It was light! d by windows instead of by a skr liuht. aa was contenmla'ed by the ordinance wnich was repealed by the present one. The ccst of the main building with sewerage would be 125,0.14. while tr?e build ing proper would ctst $111,50 1. Some dis cussion arose as to whether the General Af- eiubly hall would be large enough, but it was of fiiort duration. One member thought it ehould have a f eating capacity of t',(X if Indianapolis ever expected to eeenre any of the National Conventions. The Mayor raid it would be much larger than tb Music Hall in Cincinnati, which wa not near as mammoth a etructure as the good people of that rity represented it t.i be. The pirns were finally unanimously adopted, and it wes rteolved that the Build ing Committee, of which the Mayor is to b Chairman, hhould be appointed at the regu lar meeting of the Council on Monday night by joint iemt:on. Mr. Haoh otftrnl a resolution that John B. Don' circus be permitted to give two days' exhibition in tnis city during th9 present month without being compelled to procure a licenee. Mr. Hantrh said that Mr. Doris had win tered his show here at an enormons expenss and tbe city Lad derived no little beneht thereby, hence it was no more than right for the Council to depart from the customary rule in this case. The matter was rfrrd until the next meeting, when a specisl ordi nance will in all probability ba passed grant icg Mr. Doris the right to give his eihioi lion without a liceme. The Council the adjourned. An Interesting Operation In Surjrery. Yesterday afternoon a surgical op?ratton was performed by Drs. ComiEgore and Man ker that will evidently attract large atten tion in the professior. A cancerous growth was removed by the application of the knife from the tongue of a patient. It differed from the trouble sill cting General Grant only that it was located on the left instead of the right side of the tongue. It wea fully B3 larse and aggravatfug as Grant's 'lliction when Dr. Pancoast acvlsed surgery, t Lor.g Rranch last s.i tu rner. The description o( Grant's d;tea:e, as it appeared, tn nieoical journals of wa;e months ago, is the same as that of the tumor extirpated jcs'.erday. If the Indianapolis patient recovers, there :3 no.res.son wny th life of General Grant miut not have been saved, or be advarcd. The eurferer is a rea sonably well ire'erved mn of fifty-eight times in his life rad len some what intemperate. The growth was lirst diecosered about 'ght mouths ago, but'wfcs treated by Joral physicians until a few days eince. when, in resp nse to their advice, tbe patient came to Dr. Coaiia gore, who pronounced it epithelioma, and determined to use the knif. Aflf r ananglng the patient on an opsr sticg table, and having made several appli cations cf cocaine, a thick ligature wa tasied through the center and an inch from the end of the tongue, so aä to be abla to draw it out aa far as possible, the mouth be ing kept open with a sag. Grasping the cancerous growth with a stout pail of doable tenaculum, the tongue was diawn far out. A fharp, staight-point bistoury was then in troduced far back and down to tbe base of the growth aud carried into tbe medi&n line and well forward almost to the pjint, rtrxovittg almost the ebtire halt of tbe toiigne, trreat care being ten to keep well ahead of direaeed tissue. The growth was rucst effectually and thoroughly removed. The bemcrTbaiie was profuse and necessita ted the ligation of three arteries. The bleeding then shopped, except a little oozing, which was checked by the application ol ab solute alcohol. No Rtifsthetic was given ou account of the blood that might strangle the patient, Eenry George at Plymouth Church. Henry George, whose book on ' Progress and Poverty" is called by the London Times be most dangerous book of the century," is to lecture In this city at Plymouth Chnrch on Wednesday evening, April 8. It will be something to see and hear a man wno has written an economfc work that has been more widely circulated than any similar werk ever was: something tn tee and bear a man who electrified the EuroDean world from the Hebrides to the Adriatic, and set presses of both continents going upon con troversial literature in relation to his re markable doctrines; something to see and hear a man cf whose appearance in Birming ham, EDgland, the 01, of that city, said: It ws a msml8cent ndipnre xaI gathered to hour Henry üeore on Wcdnodty veniac, and one ot tue most nnanlinoiiB and enthusiastic I have teen in Elm Ins Lftn for years.
