ihis is as it should be; while
llississippians throughout the Com
monwealth are anxious to greet him
at the lecal hustings, in times like
these it is better that those who enjoy
the confidence and esteem of a whole
people should seek that portion of
the battlefield where the fight rages
fiercest and where victory or defeat
are most to be courted or dreaded.
He is not needed here, while in In
diana, Wisconsin or any other of the
close Western States, h!s eloquence,
earnestness and magnetio influence
will prove important adjuncts in a
well planned battle for the t-chiev-ment
of a common triumph.

Tan latest returns from the Census

In 187S the Bauioals then in power or
dered the census tuken, obtaining as the
result a population of 925,145, an iu
crease in live years of 219,530. This was
accepted without question by the coun
try, aud serves os a voucher for the fideli
ty of the recent enumeration. It is need
less to say that the Itepublicims through
out the North are startled nnd horrified
at the wonderful exhibition of progress
made by those particularly hated sisters
Louisiana, Bouth Carolina and Slissis-
sippi, whose increase has been singular
ly even, and the cry of fraud is their de
spairing wail.
Gen. Albert G. Myers, chief of the
signal corps of tho United States

Gen. Myers will be mourned by

as the inventor and perfector of the
system of weather signals and "indi
cations" that has saved many a
staunch ship from disaster, and tens
of thousands of gallant sailors from
ocean graves.
Fob fifty parishes of Louisiana
that have been reported to the New
Orleuns Democrat, the population by
census of 1880 foots up 855,380,
against 022,780 in 1870. There are
still eight parishes to hear from, that
in 1870 reported 63,905 inhabitants.
If they show the same ratio of gain,
it will bring the State up to about a
million of inhabitants, against 726,
915 in 1870 a gain of 273,085.
The war between Louisville and
Nashville, and the Chicago, St. Louis

that their receipts for passenger
business were heavier during the

"Fraudulent voting is treason against

in this country is the legally-expressed
will of a majority of the people, and
whoever tempers with that is cominiting
treason aguiust the government. We
have to turn our faces squarely against
dishonesty at the polls. We must point
the finger of scorn at any man who holds
place and power by fraudulent votes."

"Profound Stilluemi 1U."
The New York Herald given this
account of a little incident at the
Fifth avenue hotel after Gen Garfield
had arriveds "After Gen; Garfield
had retired to supper, a crowd still
remained in the wide corridor of
the hotel; and politics formed the
main staple of conversation. The
two names, Garfield and Haecock,
were every instant ori everybody's
tongue. Just at the time when the
discussion was at fever heat, a email
roan, hardly more than Ave feet high,
black haired and wiry, came suddenly
to the counter of the hotel, and in a
piercing voice exclaimed : 'Bui Scott
will bet any man here ten thousand
dollars that Hancock is elected.' A
profound stillness fell for an iustent
on the audience, but the next mo
ment a great big Republican, whose
name is locally famous, caught the
bold intruder by the collar of the
coat and fired him out of the front
door, to the intense amusement of all
present. That was all right, as it was
the Republicans' fan oral entirely,
and it was cold blooded business to
"sass" the mourners. But at the
same time, it was a good illustration
of the eagerness manifested by the
Republicans this year to take bets
offered against their candidate.
Under the date of Damnrisootta, Me,,
August 10, Gon James A Hull, a stalwart
Republican office-holder and orator, ad
dressed a letter to Gen. James It. Chal
mers of ilississippi, putting the follow
ing interrogatories :
1. Would a Kopublican speaker, in all
sections of Mississippi, bo allowed the
freedom of speech that is accorded toyou
hero, and conld Republican meetings be
held at nil points in your State and not
be molested uny mure than yours will be
in Dumariscatta 1
2. Are you in favor of the Republi
cans of Mississippi, whfte and black, be
ing allowed to hold such meeting, and
-..v. -;., d-nraMte- su'ih.nj"ty m yw
receive in f his State t
8. Are you in favor of orccy citizen
of Mississippi, yhiui or black, having
absolutely freedom to vote legully, just
as they please, and also are you ill favor
of counting all such votes, and favor of
full acquiescence in the results ?
4. Did you approve of or denounoo
the killing of Chisholm, and whut do you
say about the murder now ? '
Ann. Hall concludes his letter thus :
"Please be kind enough to give bucU
snch on answer as you wil be
willing to meet in Mississippi
on your return." To this not
wholy polite letter Gen CholmerB has
replied . To the first inquiry h unswors
as follows :
Yes ; Republican meetings can be held
anywhere in Mississippi, and entire fre
dom of speech allowed.
To the second inquiry he answers :
Yes ; in a speech in Congress I invited
Republican speakers to go to my district.
Stewart L. Wocxlford was invited by the
students of the Mississippi University to
address them in 1877, and, although he
violated the usual proprieties of such an
occasion by making apolitical speech, he
was treated with the utmost respect by
the audience.
To the third he answers :
Yes : every Mississippi Democrat that
he knows of iB in favor of "a free bal
lot, a full vote and a fair count . "And
if a majority Of the votes are against us
we will abide by the results and will
not call on any major general of the mi
litia to seize aud hold the State-House,
by violence, for us."
To the lourth question lien. Chaimors
answers :
I neither approved or denounced tho
killing of Chisolm. I was once a dis
trict attorney in Mississippi, and have
been a biaclifctiue lawver for tweutv-
seven years ; and I have never formed or
expressed an opinion as to any homicide
unless I knew the testimony in the case,
and I do not think any honorable man
would. As I do not kno all the testi
mony ih the Chisohn case you must ex
enstme from expressing an opiulou about
a homicide woich you seem to have made
up your mind to call a murder. I notice
you caution that I should make Siich an
answer as lam billing to meet in Miss
issippi. As I always try to speak the
truth, I would not say in Mine what I
would be ashamed of in Mississippi, and
the institution contained in your caution
that I might, iB I must say, neither jievy

A Letter from Forney.
Columbus, O., Aug. 18. The fol
lowing letter was received bv the
chairman and secretary of the Demo
cratic state executive committee .
PmLAOBLPniA, Pa.. Aug. 17, 180).
My Deab Sir. I owe you an
apology for Dot Bending an earlier
reply to yours of the 16th, inviting
me to address the Democracy of
Ohio during the campaign, but I
waited to find time to come. That
proves to be impossible amongst a
sea of engagements here. At the
end of 20 years I find myself once
more in line with the Democratic
party, and in resuming my post I am
in company with thousands who have
co-operated with the Republicans
since the commencement of the civil
war. No Ohio Democrat who be
hoved in the example of Stephen A.
Douglas or remembers the lesson of
David Todd an-l John Biough should
hesiluta to rally to the . standard of
Winfield S. Hancock of Pennsylvania.
There is nothing in the present Re
publican party to attract the dis
ciples of these great men. All that
inspires the leader of that party now
in hatred of the men born in the
Democratic Church, . and a savage
resolve to keep the South forgiven
by Lincoln, Sitmnerj Chase and
Greeley -still in humiliation. The
war Democrats, who made the Re
publican party what It is, are not
bound to a mission that means shame
to themselves and cruelty to eight
millions of their Southern fellow
cousins, and history has no page 30
dishonoring as this new crusade of
the modern Republican leaders upon
men far more worthy than they are.
Gen. Hancock offersj us a broad
road out of such a dilemma. He is
a Democrat, a soldier, a statesman,
and, above all, an honest man.
Yours truly, John Fokney,
A Vigoroun C ampaign.
The New York Herald says : The
Democratic campaign, as prosecuted
from the headquarters of tho na
tional committee, is, in the judge
ment of members of the committee,
the most vigorous canvass that has
been made in years. Never before,
not even in the memorable campaign
of 1876, have bucIi enlhusiastio ad
vices been received, and nover, it is
reported, have so many Republicans
annouueed an intention to support
the Democratic ticket. Among the
letters received at the headquarters
yesterday were several from gentle -men
who have kitherto beon in
sympathy with Republicanism, but
who now say that they intend to
vote for Uanaock and English.
Gkw. Meyer, who died last Satnr
a.'y, at iiunaio, is niationou in obit
uary notices, rs the founder of the
Army Weather Bureau." So fur as
the mere organization and working of
the bureau is concerned this state
ment is probably correct, bat Gen.
Myer had no more to cio with tho
paternity of tho idea which gave birth
to the signal bureau than we had.
That idea was born in the brain of
Mathew F. Maury, and in the alem
bic of his groat intellect and vast
scientific re-search, was wrought out
the problems which are now as sim
ple as the lefesons in a childs prirnor.
To Maury, tlio Virginian, Maury, thb
cultivated Southron, belongs the
honor of conceiving the signal bureau
and its great benefits. Ho has been
in his grave for years, but the laurels
which twine about his brows shall
not be converted into chaplcts to
decorate another, at least witk our
consont, or without a vigorous pro
test, which W6 make here and now.
We do not deny to Gen. Meyer, the
honor which properly belongs to
him, and we most cheerfully yield
him our admiration for the energy
and the intelligence with whioh he
has walked in the path blazed bet
for him by the Southron who stands
without a rival and without a peer ;
but the honor of the paternity of the
idea whieh bought the signal burean
into life, activity and usefulness, is
justly duo to Mathew Fontaine
Maury, and the land which gave him
birth. Vicksburg Commercial.
Mr. Chambers, the greenback can
didate for Vice-President, has finally
written and published bis letter of
acceptance. This letter, he writes,
hae been "mostly prepared sitting on
the edge of my bed," We are hot
exactly able to say why Mr. Cham
bers should have been "mostly sit
ting on the edge of bis bed" while
preparing his letter of acceptance,
but we suppose it was because be
preferred that to the "ragged edge
of despair," to which brother Beecher
Was clinging when Theodore Tilton

Iowa Si u to Journal. J
Weaver was a candidate for Governor
in tho Iowa convention of 1877. Gear
beat him; he rose in the convention and
begged heaven to Witness his sincerity
while he pledged himself to support the
Republican ticket and hely roll up for it
60,000 majority. Ten days afterwards ho
wrote to Mr. Gear to absolve liihi from
Ihb pledge, for he desired to vote for
Senator Jessnp, the Prohibition candi -date.
He supported Mr. Jessup about a
week, and then "ratted" over to Mr.
Stubbs, the Greenback candidate. He
is iust the material out of which to make
a Republican ctool-pigoon.

A blustering fellow recently un
dertook to insult and intimidate a
olergyman on the railway cars near
Burlington, la. He sat in tho same
seat with tho clergyman; and, after
several attempts to drag him into
conrersation, seized him by the ear,
saying t "See hero, roistor, yer got
to answer this question." Turning
partly around Withoiit the least out
ward excitement, the clergyman re
marked : "You ttre a tstrangor to
me, and I do not wish to bo annoyed
by you. Will yoti please let go of
my ear." "Not until I have erb mind
to," insolently answered the fellow
with a grin. "Look hero, my friend,
I had muab rather pray for you than
to use force; but you must take your
hands off," remarked the minister,
"I must, eh I" Just then the minis
ter planted his fist in the fellow's
face, and knocked him down. The
passengers manifested their pleasure
at the turn things had taken, while
the scamp walked to the other end
of the car; and during the remainder
of tho trip' Condiicted himself in a
manner that would have won the
first prize for decorum in a well
regulated seminary.
Gen. Butler has returned to tho

this city of Mobile, is about to follow
the Beast's example. Some people
deplore the couvertion of these two

other men's, and their action is sig

rats instinctively leave a sinking ship.
