(IrrePiioa TIHE tmlllllON ON@OPOLT. The bells of the land rang with joy and tle journals teemred with gladness when the Pacific Railroad was comple ted. It was hailed as a great enter prise, not merely because two parallel iron bars extended from Atlantic to Pa. cifc. but because it was supposed to guarantee that which is desirable: cer tainty, celerity. and economy in the transit of freights and passengers from one verge of the continent to the other. In the first two requisites it has given satisfaction ; in the latter, althoagh an improvement on stage eoaclhes and bull trains, it is a failure thbroub misman.. agement or grasping avariciouseas, and from one end of it to the other the non subsidized press is yielding to the man. agement the title it is earning-Extor tioner. The Sacramento Union at the West. the Chicago ?riaune in the East, and the InJmad BWhpire in the interior. have openly proclaimed it a merciless plunderer of the people. Asinstanoes, the passenger rates from Sacramento to Pr.,montory k'olnt. 700 miles, costs ten cents per mile in gold coin-$70. The freight charges are fifteen cents per pound in gold coin. or $105 per ton, coin, from Sacramento to Promontory. The Union asserts that at these rates th.e acquisition ot the Asiatic trade is an impuisihility, and that it will not carry 1,W(,' tons per annum of Asiatic freights :. hlie valley of the Mississippi. The I.,chl ariff i also pronounced by the Inli,',d Empire an imposition, it e ing so arranged that local passengers have to pay within $3.50 as much tare for 468 mile• as they would for 700 miles. Our ,iown country friends. including the Tritul,,e, were extremely anxious for the Central roads. and indifferent or lhodtile tn the extenDeion of Ilthe .me endow m.ent to other rmad. Now they have it. and find thrmzelvets in the despotic i,.ewer of a s,,ulleps monster-a project that was not only aided but wholly built by the munificence of the govern, ment. They have made them a bed of thorns. created a legal robber, and will have to b.ar their grievances until conm petition by the completion of other roads gives them redress It is said Congress has the power to fix the rates. That is true. but the combinations of those companies which have cleared thirty millions of dollars on the build. ing of these roads, and defeated the comnhied efforts of the Northern and Southera Paci6fc road. last wintaer, are too strong to be broken dowa in a fair fight. There is one alternative: the building of competing lines, and every consideration of development. prosper, ity and national strength demands that ulmn a fair and equitable basis of sub sidy, the Northern and Southern roads should be speedily built into the heart of the country-the undeveloped. illim itab'e, rich, and fertile domain of the better part and larger portion of the American poesestsone t^ the north and south of the barren alkali deserts across which has been thrown the brat conti nental road.

So you Aave found the People's move ment was by Democrats, and are com pelled to acknowledge, that you may fight it. But what a malic;oun spirit you evince. As you state it. a Demo crat is not a free moral agent, a free man, a sovereign American citisen, hav ing his indivldual rights to believe what he pleases. accepting right and truth and rjecting vice and infamy, and vo ting as his judgment and conscienee dictates, but a mere moccasin, to be worn on the hoot of forced candidates into what mire and filth they may choose, or be chocked in a sink for re tusing. It your birds do not sing to your pleasure, their ofsending throats are to be cut forthwith by the party razor, and men of good characster are to be unsparingly stigmatised or yield like dumb, driven slaves, to your dictatorial behests. That is Democracy with a vengeance. If men of your party are to be treated thus, what doom, thou Mildst manssered man That evr scattled ship, or cat a throat, do you purpose for Republiaes oppo neant?

The Executive Order of Preaiden Grant to the Indian Commission is as exceptiaoable: Of the formation and purposes of the Commission, we eannot say as muobbelieving the objects aimed at impracticable or unnereesary, and the members eonmeituting it not qualifed for the task. Upon their characters as exemplary Christians, there may be no spot or blemish, but Orthodox views and social poe/tion without other more available virtues, do not go for much In a Sioux camp. The rsservation bud nes ean never be a succmes until the tribes are segregated and reduced to a mere buadful of deerepit and diseased creatures each. and then it will hasten their extinetio and render the mine tratioms of the clergy a decent necessity. Perhaps this is the real ultimate object of the system, garbed under an ostensa. ble one fles repugnant to the senses. If the otbee is to scure honesty in the treaty am dealings with Indians, this Commission is illy chosen. It is a sub ordination and maerioe of etileney 1I deterence to the morbidly sentimental pressure of a class of people who are as Ignorant of the Indians as those they send to manage them, and they know as little of the business they are coming on as a Digger Indian does of the cor. ventionalities of Fifth Avenue society. In a few years they may learn, but In less than a few years the veterans of three score who are coming, will have probably been laid with their fathers, or be scalped and laid out to bleach on the plains. Therefore In the practLiable purposes an error has been committed in the formation of the Commission. There are probably ten honest men in the west who might have accomplished good in such a Commission. But even this Is useless exlpendture, even if the old fo gys do not muddle things by bad recom mendations to the I)epartment. They will keep far enough away from the scene of an Indian war to get the wrong account of everything that transpires for they have a mission of peace and do not desire the offensive odor of blood. In time of peaee, the army officers as.. -signJ as agents that they' will vsdt will be just as honest without as with their inspections, and we do not feel prepared to say that if we occupied the position of a civilian or military agect, and say such fossils come Urls. Heeping around, there would be any unnecessary exertions to remove the wool from their eyes, or provide them with tea and toast in return for Sunday School tracts. And we expect this is human nature. Posal bly they may do no great harm except expend two and a half millions useless ly. They get no salary but have ex penses paid, and philanthropists have a reckless way of running up bills. But ler had better go after these roving Crypt Superintendents. Doubtless tbey are very nice old gentlemen whom we shall be pleased to see and sell a few feet of quartz to, but with the moral certainty that the Commission will faill to accomplish any good purpos e.howev er good their intentions and inatruc I tione, we regret to see the government mixing up with a practical, well prom ising system of peace and economy-the assignment of army oeBeers--on a pro .i . 6.....u .n analw he nele.mm Major Martin Maginnis, Editor cf the GazeUe, was elected Chairman of the Democratic Central Committee for the ensuing two years, vice Major John P.

It is probable the above Lilliputian thunderbolt I from the pen of the new Chairman of the Democratic Central Committee, and has special reference to the the round turn taken, on the Indiana Shysters, by the Legis lature of that State. We are not sufm ciently versed in Constitutional law or the Indiana statutes to even dissent from the opinion of our profound cotem porary, but would merely suggest that Hon. O. P. Morton, a Senator of the United States from Indiana, a gentle man of some note as a jurist, and who has been (overnor of Indiana for some years, publtshes in the Induanapolis Journal an argument of two or three columns, at which he arrives at the con clusion, by quoting the Constitution and Statutes, that the ratification was legal in every particular. Pessibly Mr. Maginnis might obtain some valuable information by reading it. Since the above was in type we noties the Attorney General of the 8tate has decided the action legal. THE WA ILING OP THE JEWS IN JEBIUtALHII. Quite a number of our readers will re member the sallusion to the following described custom in Mr. Osborne's IA brary Lecture last winter, and the fine photograph of the place exhibited. To us it seems a custom fuller of sad inter est than any other on record-a people banished from its holy places for centu ries, still fingering by the cold walle that enclose them, warming them with their kisses, and baptising them with their tears. And Time and generations go down to the Past. to the ends of the earth are that people scattered, and though distinguished for acquisitiven ness and parsimony, yet thrice a King's ransom is given freely that by the outer wall they may lament their long lost heritage and invoke the favor of an of fended Uod : "The Jews in Jerusalem have pur chased the right of the Turkish gov ernment to assemble every Friday after noon near one side of the Mosque of Omar, against a supposed portion of their sncient Temple. and there lament and weepover their fallen city and faded glories. Men, women and children there as semble, all coming with Bible in hand and dressed in their best suit. The men wear a kind of long dressing gown made of broadcloth or merino, or calico of various colors, having the edges trimmed with fur. Their hair is cut short behind the ears, but hangs in long curls in front. The better class of women are clothed in a white loose dress and shawl. As they a;"proach the place of weep% lag they usually lean first, for a short time, with their heads against the wall. but soon begin to swing their bodies back and forth, wringing their hands, while a priest or patriarch leads off in reading selections from the Prophets in most wailing tones. At certain periods all voices join in the cry, tears run down their faces, and they seem to be moved by the most ag onising sorrow. Old men and women were there with whitened locks and feeble steps, and they bowed and wept in deepest grief. Little children, too, were there. their eyes moistened and voices trembling as they joined in the hearttonuchbing lamentations. No looker-on can doubt but there is sincerity in this service. The Jews feel that Jehovah iears their cries and prayers, and according to prophecy will restore to them, after long seasons of bitter wailings, their lost glories; gath ering together all the scattered children of Israel, and henceforth permit them to live and die in the Holy City, and be buried among the graves ot their fathers. This practice is said to have been con tinued from the twelfth century. and perbars from an earlier period. By the Emperor Adrian the Jews were driven from the city. During the reign of Con stantine they were allowed to approach only near enough to see it; but at length 'they succeeded in purchasing the priv iltge of entering it once a year to weep. and s: preseat they are allowed this privilege every Friday. More especially do we ppoee the adoption of the o called fifteenth amend ment.-Denmoratic P.e.orm.

Newman, an Englishman but a strong friend of America. It is a new point of some moment, and certainly It untru'e, de mands a denial from the Ex-Secrbtary of State. He says that in an historical retiew by Hon. John Jay, read before the Paris anti-slavery Conference of 1867, there is a statement that in April. 1861, Mr. Seward. Secretary of State, advised the American Ministers in Eu rope '" that the Federal (iovernment could not reduce the seceding States to obedience by conquest," and the Presi. dent, so far from rejecting willingly. accepted that doctrine. Upon this pre sentment, England promptly recognised the belligerent rights of the Confederacy. The published " Diplomatic Correspon. dence" of 1861, certainly does not con tain any such expreseion,. ut coming from as respectable authority as it does, the silence of Mr. Seward mder the charge, cannot be else construed than as an admission that it was really written and suppressed from publication. It it is true, it very injuriously effects the cause of our Government in controversy. (Mr. Cavanaugh) was, by corumom con sent, contid*'red the leader of the dele gations from tise Territories. and was the co:mmon advoctte of the interests of them all.--Gazettc. That's heavy on Burleigh, Flanders. Hooper, Ciever Holbrook, Chilcott and Bashford. They will certainly be de lighted to hear it. But is it not strange with a Radical Congress choking of Democrats unheard by forcing "thre pre vious questi.n." as stated in 10s speech on Saturday, that lie, a Democrat, should aspire, or the five Republican Delegates submit, to his sacrificing the interests of their Territories merely in deference to his transcundant abilities? Don't put the on to, thick, bl.lrueylor you know "the O. Kavanaugli" isn't much of an Iri shman atter all, and you l.might dies, gus t him and his modesty compel him to decline. It is a little strange, too that being the "leader"' and "c,)mmog advocate." the Dakota, Idaho, Colorado and othe tDelegates should be aid· to S-oompl , so much more for their Tear ritories. inewst is an inoexplicable mrys. tery in it. Will the Gausete explain ? The Chiciago Tribune has opened out on the Elevator monopoly of Chicago. asserting it is conducted to the serious detriment of the commercial interests of that city. Grain is taken in and shipped direct from the Elevatore at Joliet 3 cents per bushel lower that Chicago, and the manipulations of dit fesent grades in the Chicago Elevator puts a profit of 7 or eight cents in the pockets of the monopoly which should go to the seller or be left as a margin tor eastern purchase:s. Chicago is evi dently a little bit eervous at the St. Louis grain movement, or their Eleva' tors would not be ventilated so thor= oughly. The Gazette, indulging in a few brilliant general vagaries laudatory of Mr. Cava% naugh's accomplishments, says: "All this we are necessary to substantiate with argument and reason." Suppose you defer that, and give the facts-what he has done, specifically. The publlc stomach prefers fool to bav Ing a table cloth shook at it. Never did the people at large partake sofreely in making nominations as at this time.-Gazette. The democrats usually "'partake as freely" as opportunity ofers, and a num ber of them "at large" are said to be indebted for it to the inefficiency of the Democratic Sheriff of Deer Lodge. It's not much to brag of, but about the best you have.
