pahnell's amendments.
London, Feb. —Parnell ha.s announced
his intention of moving an amend to
the address in. reply of the queen's speech
with reference to the recent conduct of the
government toward Ireland. Its^ tenden
cy, he saye. hag not. been to tranquihze
the people. He especially deplores the
want or prohibition of legal and consti
tutional meetings, whereby free speech
has been practically qaenohed in Ireland.
The amendment condemns the Irish exec
utive for having permitted the magistrates
publicly and with perfect impunity to
applaud the conduce of Lord Rossmore,
"who had been super/ceded as a justice of
the peace, for disturbing public order,
pro7ok.:ng ill will and strife between dif
ferent ciaasf 3 in Ireland, and thereby di
rectly inciting Irishmen to illegal acts,
disorder and d«<=«ds cf violence. The
amendment concludes by humbly assuring
her majesty of tor r.rui conviction of his
party that the policy of forcing or stimu
lating state aided emigration of the Irish
people should be definitely and forthwith
the cosmos.
London, Feb. 7.—The conservatives

London, Feb. 7. —A letter from Gen. Gordon,

has abandoned all intention of guaranteeing the
continuance of Egyptian supremacy over the
Houdan. It has decided the task is too onerous,
and will be attended with no corresponding ad
vantages. It will therefore allow the people
now in rebellion to revert to their old sultans.
Gen. Gordon accepts this decision as wise and
just, for he says, unless England &hall secure the
tjoudan in the possession of a good government
it ought not to conquer the country itself, nor
allow others to do so. Gen. Gordon's mission
is to arrange with the people in a quiet way re
garding their future affairs.

Whatever may be said in regard to the pro
pensity of the management of great railway lines
to provide for the public only what is actually
demanded in the way of accommodatiors and
comfort, can in no way apply to the manage
ment of the Chicago, Kock Island & Pacific rail
way, or as it is moie familiarly known, "The
Great Rock Island Route." This line has for
years been recognized as the best and most com
fortable route between Chicago and Kansas City
and the southwest, and has been abundantly able
on this account to successfully cope with its
compet itors. But not satisfied with this success
and its already elegant equipment, iti managers
have caused to be turned out of its shops at Chi
cago a magnificent line of dining cars which go
into immediate service on the Kansas City line.
These cars contiio all the conveniences of well
furnished dining rooms, are elegant in design
and finish, and models of the advanced railway
art of the day. Within them meals are furn
ished e^ual to those of any first-class hotel in
the laud at the low rate of seventy-five cents.
Travelers on this line now find on its trains all
the comforts and conveniences of first-class
hotels Besides the best of first and second
class coaches there are Parlor Chair Cars
which aiefree to all passengers holding through
first-class tickets), Pullman Palace Sleeping
Cars and Dining Cars.
• This Company's line.-.— all of which are
equally equipped also extend to Council
Bluffs Bnd the West, and Minneapolis and St.
Paul and the Northwest; and the deserved
praises bestowed upon it by returned travelers
who speak from experience, make it noted
throuehout the land.
We bespeak for the owners and managers «f
this magnificent Railway ample returns for
their generous provisions for the wants of the
public, which is, as has already been proven by
the patronage extended to this line, quick to ap
preciate and patronize those who prove by their
deeds and generous treatment that they are de
voted to its comfort and welfare.

To the Editor of the Globe.'.: -
Some one wrote to Texas Sittings, wanting to
know if there was a greenback party in lexas.
The editor replied that the inquiry reminded
him of the man that asked the wife of a German
neighbor, if her husband was in. "Yeeh he ish in,
but heish det." This appears to be the status
of a number of Republican members of the pres
ent house of representatives at Washington.
The bitter personal contests waged in many
congressional districts in the fall of 1882, nota
bly, the fifth Minnesota, where h-11 was torn np
by the roots, was not the result of an honorable
ambition to serve the people well .
of such patriots as Nelson, <t id omiies genus for
congressional honors, is that it provides oppor
tunities for the display of their peculiar talents
in "fixing things," for their personal benefit.
Attracted by the undisguised and reckless legis
lation of the last coDgress; led by Bobeson and
Keifer, in the interest of jobbery tnd corrup
tion ; they were fired with a desire to share in the
good things there to be had for the asking, prt
vided always, there was a congenial Republican
majority in control of legislation. Republicans
have not been in tho practice of giving thought
to inch contingent, and Mr. Nelson, now that he
is i.i coogre a, finds himself facing a Demo
cratic speaker, with his anticipated "opportuni
ties" couspicaoos only, in their absence. The
ditgast thereat, of the "gentleman from Minne
sota," may be imagined, but cannot be counter
; feited. He is io congress, but for Iris main in
tents, and purposes; practically deceased. He
can console himself however, with the reflection,
tuat many a s'milar flower, "was born to b^ush
unbc'fln," and yet it&in its fragrance. That tl.a
Republican representatives at Was- ington
: in not being in a majority, arid liavo with <V:Y
culty restrained their partisan rage thereat, was
evidenced in the bad temper exhibited by a large
number of tl em, in the recent debate on the bill
to restore General Porter, to his former position
in the army. In view of what has traiispited,
and the facts that have come to light since his
dismissal, a lelusal to unite in righting the
great wroi.g, can only l»e accounted for, by con
ceding the truth of an adage, that attributes a
pbase to human nature, that manhood repels—
'•We hate the man whom we have injured."
Tne men that will not now ignore the predu
dices acquired during civil war, twenty years
ago, when called upon to perform an act of jus
tice to a brave and gallant officer of the army,
are not patriots, and should receive as they de
serve, the condemnation of all good citizens.
The Republican party in the state of New . York
comprises three distinct factions, namely:
The first named are at present in a morbid
state, quiet and reticent, as to their future plans,
Roscoe Conklii g is their prophet, and when he
speaks, all dogs bark. The Mongrels are bo
called, on account of their taking no interest
whatever, in politics, other than being lured by
the attractive phrase of "Protection to Ameri
can Industry." They consist largely of opera
tives, and other employes of manufacturers, and
do the bidding of their masters, by walking up
an 1 voting in interest of their arch eneruy, mo
nopoly, with great regularity. They are merely
voting property, and by many are called, Dam
phocl Republicans.
are last mentioned because they are . the most
hypocritical,, therefore most contemptible. The?
truly good ones'" present wear a pious cast of
countenance, talk glibly of the sins of Demo
cratic leaders, but have no compunctions in vot
ing for the multiplied corrupt Republican can
didates nominated for office. The appellation
Half-breed applied to them is a misnomer, for
they are the essence of modern Republicanism,
the kind that believe in it, and hates Democrats
with a hatred born of toryism and old federal
iem. Senator Wood Pulp Miller is their High
Priest, who reached his present elevated position
through the aid of a step-ladder. This element
is more mistrusted when in official position,
than are the lnbreds. for they will steal, relig
iously, and systematically; while the latter fac
tion, although, actuated by pure cussedness, are
approximately honest when charged with public
trusts. While these two factions assume to be
at variance, when canvassing for a presidential
candidate they are in reality a unit. "Anyone
that can win" is the woid, and they would
readily agree that it should be Dorsey or
Brady, accompanied with a better assurance of
continued power. .
seperated by a river; one settled with Christian
people, the other with those who were quite the
opposite. A farmer of the latter place said to
Deacon Good: "Why is it that you always get
better prices for your lands than we • can, when
our farms are just as good" The deacon re
plied, that schools and churches increased the
value of property, wherever established. A few
days after, the Eame man again called on the
deacon, and placing a roll of bank notes in his
hand, said: "I have been talking up this sub
ject of charches, and we have decided to have
preaching in our district. We want you to take
this money, and get us a preacher.'* • "I will do
my best," replied the deacon, well pleased that
he was about to be the instrument of to much
good. "What kind do you want We have
Methodists, Baptists, and Presbyterians." "Oh
iffiy that comes handy. We don't care a d—m
what kind it is, to it raises the price of land."'
Ail he wanted was results; and th 9 illustrates
the position of the Republican party, in their
choice of a Presidential candidate. * A.
What to no With Our Girls.
[Chicago Iribnne.]
Good day, gentlemen .
Good day, said the horse reporter, looking up
and discovering a young lady ia the apartment.
• I would like to show you a work which I am
selling, she began, and am sure it will prove
both interesting and instructive.
What's it about? asked the horse reporter.
The book, continued the fair canvasser, is by
one of our best- known writers and speakers,
and is entitled What Shall We Do With Our
Girls?, The question is cartainly one of para
mount importance, and— •
Are your girls botherin > you much this sea
son ? inquired the friend of Maud 8.
Why, no, said the young v lady, blushing vio

Oh, you're out on the road telling people
what to do with their girls before you're, even
married, let alone the mother of a few visions
of loveliness? Well, that's all rinht. Some of
our best cook books have been written by peo
rje who didn't know a gridiron from the fif
teenth amendment.
But this question of what shall be doDe with
the girls is really an important one, continued
the young lady, have you ever given it a thought?
I can't say that I have, replied the horse re
porter. I suppose we might tie 'em up in t the
back yard when a circus comes to tew a.
I hardly think you comprehend toe . question
in all its bearings. What is the legitimate
sphere of woman ; in what field of action can
she best display and make use of the God-given
talents, attributes of mental force, and phvbical
grace with which she is endowed? "; These are
living burning issues, and must be :, fairly met.
When -we see— v
All right, said the horse reporter, you can
meet them if you want to. ; Woman's sphere, so
far as I have been able to discover, is to never
have breakfast on time. It is no doubt a some
what limited one, but she is gradually reaching
out into the great unknown, and will eventually
grasp with her lily-white fingers the • black de
mon of injustice that has bo lot,g oppressed her,
and strangle in the very stronghold of its power
the great wrong which for centuries has baffied
her efforts at advancem nt along the great high
way of progress.
■Why, that's . lovely! exclaimed the young
lady. You believe in lady suffrage, don't your
Lady who?
Lady —believe that ladies '. should
vote, and have all the political privileges: that
are accorded men. That's just what this book I
says That chapter is perfectly tweet. It's
just lovely. .
I presume so. But how a'wut the chapter
: that says women should not cramp and distort
\ their bodies witn corsets and their feet with
tight, shoes? The gaunt demon of unrest that
lurks in t r e maternal bunion may, in the child
of tint mother, become aa ever-present monster ■
of pain
Ob, those chapters are hoi rid! What the
world is interested in are i the nobler attributes
of woman—her soul and heatt.
Yes, the soul and heart busiree&is all rght,
but you must remember that the humble liver,
working away unostentatiously, is also a pretty
good scheme, and without health woman can
never attain success. The deadly clasp of the
steel-ribbed corset and the J fatal grip of the
gleaming garter are hurrying to early graves the
women of our land The beautiful eyes that
should sparkle so brightly an dull and lustre
less, the cheek whose whiteness should be re
lieved by the rosy blush of health is sallow and
wan, and the fairest temple ever made it render
ed a ghastly ruin by the one who should take
the greatest pride in its beauty
And will you buy a book? "asked the young
lady. I'm sure you talk beautifully.
No, replied the horse reporter. I cannot buy
a book, because actions speak louder than
words, and I do not wish to disturb the dramat

The \iicrtl\fx Marriage to a Young and
Jiiamifitl Hitman!) Girt.
"Before leaving Cambridge,"' writes Lord
Lytton in his autobiography, "'I had enriched
my experience with some vacation adventure*,
including an encounter with a highwayman, a
night in a lonely cottage where an attempt was
made to murder me, and an amour with a pretty

Death-Bed Request of Mr. Bobsrt White.
On Monday night, says the New York Sun,
Mr. Robert White, of the New York Sunday
Democrat, was taken seriously ill. Dr. Ha ran
was summoned. Mr. White had a severe hemor
rhage, and breathed with much difficulty. His
friends gathered at his bedside. The physi
cian shook his he id sadly when questioned con
cerning his recovery. At an early hou r in the
morning the Poet Geoghegan visited his old
friend. Mr. White lay propped up with pil
lows. He closed his eyes and did not respond
when the poet spoke to him. "Poor fellow,"
murmured Dr. tfaran. "I hardly think he can
recover. 1 think he is unconscious."
"Don't tell me that, doctor, dear," said Mr.
Geghegan . "I love him as a brother. If he
would only have one sensible moment, and rec
ognize me, it would be such a comfort. "
• Here Mr. White opened his eyes.* He seemed
to recognize his old friend, and grip his
hand convulsively. "Billy." he faltered, "I
wish you would promise me one thing before I
•'What is it?" replied the poet, his eyes filled
with tears. "Sure, man, any request of yours
shall be sacredJy fulltihed."
"Then don't write any bloody doggerl over my
death," gasped Mr. White.
Mr. Geoghegan smiled through his tears,
"Sure, doctor," said he, "there's no doubt of
his sinsibility. He'll get well."
And he did. Yesterday they were dining to

Henry Clay's Last Visit to the House.
[Ben. Perley Poore's Reminiscences.]
, Henry Clay's last visit to the house of repre
sentatives, over which he had presided so long
and so well, was at the funeral of Mr. Kauff
man, of Texas, in February, 1851. He did not
come in with the senators, but he entered the
house alone and took his seat immediately in
front of the sppaker. He did not remove his
blue cloth cloak, but remained well wrapped up
and unvarying in his position. I had n : ver be
fore seen him look so much line an old, old
man. The damp and gloomy day perhaps cor
spired with the passing scene to depress bin), or
it may be that ho was not in health. I do not
know, but sure lam that from his appearance
no one would believe his voice could ha even
audible in the senate, much le-s that, by the
power of his eloquence, he could c ntrol or in
fluence its deliberations. His face shrunken
aud shrivelled, his eyes lustreless and heavy,
his mouth in repose only when open and ex
pressionless, he seemed to have so long since
parsed into the "lean and slippered pantaloon,"
as to be no longer suited to the ardent oncoun

delphia to-night was a great success.' It was
given by Mr, Thomas McKean, grandson of the
McKean of the first American congress, in his
large and beautiful house at Twentieth and Wal
nut streets. It was a strictly private affair, lim
ited to 225 guests— ladies and half that
number of gentlemen . All of the ladies wore
postillion dress coats, vests, elaborate shirt
fronts and high standing collars. . The men in
many cases bad their hair done up and some
wore wigs. They also, to some extent, appeared
in low neck and short sleeves, with earrings and
necklaces and corsage bouquets. The ladies as
a rule called for the gentlemen at : the houses,
asked them out to dinner and escorted them in
to supper. There was a great deal of amuse
ment created and the affair was one of the most
novel and enjoyable held here in many years.
