THIS DAILY iSvKNIMG TELEGRAPH PHILADELPHIA, THURSDAY, APRIL 28, 1870.
srzzizT or Tiin mass. Editorial Opinions of the Leading Journals uponCurrcnt Topics Compiled Every Day for the Evening Telegraph. THE TRIBUNE HOLLINtl IN THE GUTTER. From the iV. P. Timr. Tbe course of the Tribune during the last few days ninut hnve aRtoiiinhol those who have not recognized in Mr. lloraoe Greeley the great original of Pecksniff. Ilia life ia au "organized byporriHy." For years he has boeu pretending that he iiever sought office, and never desired it. Yet for years he schemed and plotted for it, and then poured forth a bitter lamentation concerning the in gratitude of the political anHooiates with whom he had acted. More recently he has been dis covered engaged in one of the most unscru pulous and profligate conspiracies of which political annuls bear reoord, with the object of winning the Governorship at the next election. This time he did not associate himself with such men as Governor Sew ard, but he went over to the enemies of his party, and basely offered himself to them for sale. The Council of Sachems of the Tammany Society declared, in a formal report at their recent meeting, that John Morrissey promised bim the Democratic vote in his con test for the Governorship if he would lend his paper to a specific purpose for which they wanted it. The report of the interview be tween Morrissey and Greeley was published in the Hun, and although Mr. Greeley denied the accuracy of some portions of it, yet the reporter completely upset his denials, and after that Mr. Greeley was silent because he is a "prudent" man, like his dear friend Major de Boots. So much for his political honesty. He has now either by his own aot, or by that of still baser instruments, dragged journalism through an abyss of filth never before Been in this country. On St. Patriok's day he made a Pecksniffian speech about the use of personalities in tbe press. lie pretended to deplore these personalities, and earnestly begged his hearers not to enoourage them. The journal at whioh his remarks seemed to be aimed is at least free from the guilt of the Tribune. The Tribune lends its columns to every slanderer, in the hope of concealing the irreparable mischief whioh it has sus tained in consequence of recent revelations. The "warblers have brought it to grief, and now it hopes to silence the just voice of criticism by devices which the riff-raff of the Streets would deem too foul to use. That the philosopher of the Iribune is in the habit of cursing like a drab is notorious but he must be taught not to curse in print. On Tuesday he allowed some miserable devotee of the Frothingham sect to put for ward a scurrilons statement to the effect that we had misrepresented their high priest, and then refused to do him justice. The follow ing correspondence will be a Boffloient reply to this falsehood: "To the Editor of the New York: Timet ' "Dear Sir: Will you do me Jimice by furnishing the name of tbe correspondent who ascribed to me the atrocious sentiments on which you commented this morning 7 Yours, very truly, "o. B. FnonrrNOHAM. 'No. 60 West Thirty-sixth street, April 19, 1810." "Thb 'Timbs' Offich, April 20. "The Editor of the Time begs to lnrorm Mr. Frothingham, In reply to his note of the 19th. that the passage referred to formed part of the outline of his Sunday's discourse, as furnished by one of the regular reporters of the Timet, and published in lea columns on Monday morning." Our reporter vouched for the aoouracy of his account, and after that we heard nothing more from Mr. Frothingham. But a meddle some busybody, named Oliver Johnson, who is always fuming round newspaper offices, brought ns a long and impudent letter on the subject, which we declined to publish. We would have published any statement from Mr. Frothingham, but we were not bound to publish Mr. Oliver Johnson's outburst of vul garity and insolence. He carried it to the great dirt heap of whioh the Tribune is the proprietor, and shot his rubbish there and a good riddance of it. ... But the Tribune adds to this person's tirade a statement which deserves some notice from ns. little as we are disposed to follow it into the mire where it has been groveling for days past, it reiers to uovernor Itaymond, whom it abused persistently, wantonly and malignantly for upward of five and twenty years. It poured out every variety of its vile slanders upon him, and now raises its Peck- Bniflian wail over his name only in the spirit of a cowardly defamer. It then adds that "our circulation has steadily declined." Oar reply to this is short and simple the Tribune 'lies deliberately, willfully, wickedly, with naked intent to defame and malign. It knows that its lie is utterly without excuse or plausi bility. Now, tnis is not the sort of lan guage for which we have any partiality, but we copy it irom uie irwune, wnere it ap pears witn otner "impotent buQoonery and ruffianism peculiar to venal journalists and moral Pecksniffs. As for the Iribune itself. the description of it given by its own friends is its most fatal aoouser. It is a mean, slan derous, and dishonest sheet, and it has probably done more to degrade morals and journalism than any paper whioh was not liable to be instantly suppressed by the police. THE PLEBISCITE. Prom the N. Y. World. The sense of the Emperor's plebiscite to the French is: Are you willing my son should reign after me? The text puts "liberal re forms in the place of "son, and thus, though everybody knows the terms are not synonymous, the peculiar wording of the lormuia rnaKes a nostue vote upon it very aimcuu. lo vote lor liberal reforms is to vote in favor of the Prinoe Imperial becoming jLuiperor on tne demise of nis respected sire: to vote against such succession is, in so many words, to vote against liberal reform, and few Frenchmen will care to write themselves down lovers of Bourbonism by such a ballot as that. Accordingly, by a olever petitio prin cipii, the Emperor puts himself in a position to almost certainly receive nineteen out of every twenty votes cast; while nothing is' left the irreooncilables, legitimists,, and other anti-Bonapartists but to persuade people not to vote at au. In this it is not likely that their efforts will meet any great success. There is a certain fascination about putting "the thing in the box" which few are able to resist. At the moment of standing at tne pons wun ms ucKei in nis grasp, a man is, or thinks he is which is pretty much the Rame thing, so far as he is concerned a king, a sovereign tbe one human being upon the expression of whose will all other human beings must wait. To ask him, then, to forego this all-glorious moment is a thing abominable so abominable that the chances are an hundred to one he will immediately resent the same by tearing off forthwith to the polta, and there depositing his ballot with even a more biuiuuiuoun ieeimg m aove reicntv than usual, the effort to induce him to forego bin rights heightening, by the very eense of oootiwjt, me joy-Hjupwi. graiw, irwffHble that the exercise of the right ordl nniily confers. Shrewdly banking on this tmall frtiilty, the Emperor so frames his j-.Ubiscitvm that, that to vote at all, you must alruoht necr ssarily vote in its favor, ibose who oppose can scarcely vote against it other than by not voting at all; and, however easy this may be for your patriot of the Rochefort school, it does not suit the great mass. Ac cordingly, when the patriot from Taris pro ceeds to address Jacques uonnomme in tne provinces on tne propriety or not voting, Jerques is quite apt to say: "Whereto serve bnllots but to oouf ront the visnge of the box? Am not I, Jacques Bonhomine, for one second in my life to be greater than even the Emperor by reason of the ballot which I hold in my hand, wnue his Majesty mmsolf stands, hat in hand, a candidate at the polls, soliciting the honor of my electoral acquaint ance ?" The patriot will be hard pushed to answer (his kind of thing; and accordingly tbe Emperor wins the first trick by getting Jacques and Victor, and Francois and Jean to the polls. Being there, with no very well defined idea, one may swear, except to vote somehow, the question arises, How will you vote ? Will you vote for liberal reforms for your right to vote, for the progressive glory of la Oelle France, for tnis ana otner plebis cites? Or will yon vote against liberal re form, to have an iron collar round your neck like your great grandfather, and be ruled by aristocrats ? Jacques, Francois, Victor, and Jean, of course, shout "Down with aristo crats! and vote, every man of them, for liberal reforms, the succession of the Prinoe Imperial inclusive. And thus tbe Emperor wins the second trick, and with that trick the game. it has been tne strengtn of Napoleon ill that he has been enabled at any time these eighteen years to refer to that vote in 1852 when eight millions of Frenchmen indorsed his course; and a like strength, now that tne lion is old, he desires for his whelp. The overwhelming probabilities are that he will get it; that some nine millions of voters, a full half over all in these United States, the man and brother included, will authorize the succession of the Prinoe Imperial; and that in due time Napoleon IV will issue his deorees "by the grace of God and the will of the French people." Perhaps, were the issue plain and simple, for or against the Bonaparte dynasty, the result might be different, especially as in the year 18GD the votes stood 4,000,000 Imperialist to 3,000,000 Opposition; but, as it is, the dex trous wording of the plebiscite will, almost beyond doubt, overwhelmingly carry the day. i rom ivjii to lo2 no vote in .trance against a plebiscite has exceeded five per cent, of the vote for the plcbixcite, and upon the average it has not been over half of one per cent.; in 1852, ont of every one Hundred votes tbe Em peror received ninety-seven votes, and three were cast against him. with this showing for seventy years of popular voting in Franoe, it is hardly to be supposed but that this ple biscite, like others, will sweep everything be fore it. Such, at least, is the presumption from the figures; and a very different presump tion it is that our electoral figures present. We may do this thing better than in France. but our returns show that, save in the great plebiscites in the time of Washington, our popular votes on the Presidential issue have been close sometimes so close that Lincoln, for instance, got in, in lttliO, by but some 1,900,000 votes out of a total of 4,700,000, our peculiar institntions permitting this kind of thing. HOW THEY ARE GETTING ALONG. From the H. Y. Tribune. We forget into how many hostile factions the Woman's Suffrage Association is just now divided, but we believe three or four. At any rate the sisterhood have split into so many parties and developed such a talent for failing out, that any doubt the public may have felt about their pre-eminent fitness for business must now be dispelled. Let ns see then how they are getting along. 1 In Massa chusetts, where their prospects of success were supposed by themselves to be bright est, a resolution for an ' amendment to the Constitution, allowing women to vote, has been rejected in the Legislature by a large majority, and the people seem to be glad of it. In Utah, where suffrage has already been given to the sex, the sex despise it. In Min nesota a Woman's Suffrage bill, which had passed the Legislature, has been killed by the Governor s veto, in Illinois, where the ques tion was before the Constitutional Conven tion, 1400 women of Peoria petitioned not to be allowed to vote; so the sixteenth amend ment is dead in Illinois also. Bat these faots would have little significance were it not evi dent that governors, legislatures, and con ventions have only reflected the sentiments of the women of the country, and that the ladies, who indirectly exert a powerful influ ence in politics, are passing from indiffer ence towards the suffrage to positive opposi tion. Really, Miss Anthony is getting along very well indeed. This, however, is not all. Mrs. Henry B. Stanton has been travelling in the West, and has lost $200 by the failure of certain railway connections, whereupon she cries: "Women have not one word to say about railroads. stages, and bridges. When we have, oh! what order and harmony will reign! With sober women for engineers and conductors. there will be no smash ups, nor running off before they are sent." Now this is a com forting promise; and we might reasonably hope that the dear creatures who have suc ceeded so perfectly in governing the nursery, and teaching "order and harmony" to reign among the scullions and chambermaids, who have set up three or four suffrage associations. and managed the complicated business of a newspaper, win direct railways much bettor than Vanderbilt and Prescott Smith, if they ever get a chance. A woman who can rule an Irish cook and bring up a baby can of course do anything, and a mind capable of taokling the problems of the kitchen and the publica tion offioe will have no difficulty with the mysteries of freight-tariffs, time-tables, and tne right ot way. asm just nere comes an appalling revelation. Before the wail of Mrs. Ilenry B. Stanton has died away, a plaint of fearful import issues from the lips ot Miss Virginia Penny. Miss Penny has boen a zealous and practical advocate of the woman cause, her efforts being directed to getting her suffering sisters not political frau chines but profitable work. Thus she has been much in contact with the Stanton-Anthony ooterie, and has seen some thing of the "order and harmony" whioh reign in the management of their affairs. She assures us that the ladies of the Revolution have no heads. They advertise books for sale when they have not the books and can't get them. They forget to make change. They put people's names on their reports without permission. They are generally mixed in their ideas of business, and loose in their notions of commercial ethics. They printed Miss Penny's name as Vice-President of the Equal Rights Association, though Miss Penny knew nothing about it and do uot bvt lieve in the Lqual ItighU Association. They would not msvrw her queaUoafl. They woM rot pay for her articles, but proposed to ap propriate them after they had been turned into a book. Miss Anthony was President of a woman's typesetters' association, but when Miss Penny wanted some women to sot type Miss Anthony could not tell her where to find them. The only practioal thing the Revolu tion ladies could do was to borrow Miss Penny's parlor to hold meetings in. Mrs. Iiivermore, Mrs. Myra Bradwell, Parker Pillsbury, tbe whole tribe of agitators, were equally bad. They were indefatigable talkers, but had no more idea of business than Dora Copperfield. In point of fact, thoy were shit I less. This is bad. Mis3 Virginia Penny is a lady of reputation, and knows what she is talking about. If Miss Anthony cannot manage a little affair like the Equal Uights Association, how would she ever get along with the Erie Railway? If they don t know now to change half a dollar at the Revolution offioe, how could they ever take up fares on an accom modation train, or pay off a force of two or three hundred laborers every Saturday night? It really seems as if the faculties of organi zation, promptness, attention to business, and a head for system, all the facultios indeed which women particularly need if they are to fall the new places to which they aspire. are the very ones in which Mrs. Stanton and her followers are especially deficient. At present we must say that Mrs. Henry B. Stanton's prospects of running a railroad and getting a vote seem equally vague and dis tant, THE DANGER OF SAN DOMINGO. From the Cincinnati Gazette. Given, on the one hand, a President, the dispenser of the enormous patronage of this republio, who has Bet nis heart on the acquisi tion of San Domingo earnestly, sincerely, and Honestly, without doubt, but with an obstinacy that answers all reason by persist ence: who has already involved his credit in the project by the payment of $175,000 on a lease of the Bay of Samana, whose usefulness stands or falls by the same tost, and by naval interference to protect the precarious San Domingo Government he is negotiating with from a party that is waging war against it in behalf of the Constitution which forbids the alienation of the territory, and to prevent the Haytiens from aiding the other party in this struggle for maintaining the independence of the island. Given, on the other hand, the United States Senate, whose members all desire their share in the dispensation of this official patronage of the President; the greater number of whom regard its control as vital to their political existence; a considerable number of whom represent small constituencies and large schemes of private benefit; another considera ble number of whom have no hold upon the States they represent beyond their present tenure, and are driven to tne necessity of im proving their brief opportunity; and all of whom recognize that to oppose the President in this project, which he has made almost a personal matter, is to abandon their share in this dispensation of official patronage. Add to this the situation of an administration majority so large that the opposition in the Senate is hardly an appreciable quantity. From this situation it is to be expected that this so-called treaty of annexation will succeed in carrying the required two-thirds of the Senate, against their own oonviotions, and against etuigntenea pnmio opinion. let it is a scheme which has already drawn ns into unwarrantable interference with the in habitants of that island; whioh is tainted with the fraud of Baez upon his countrymen. and with swindling loans which have mort gaged all the publio lands and sold every privilege that was salable, and with an election imposture; whioh has easy possibilities of involving ns in such a war for the occupation of the island as France and Spain tried in vain; which will give ns a weak spot in war, and will involve us in great military and naval expenses to make it secure; which promises ns only a disturbing element in the Government; whioh can be of no possible benent to ns, while it has possibilities of great evil; and whioh, if it be a beginning of a splendid scheme of annexation of tropical countries, has in it a future which will change the character of our Government, and will hasten on that change to a military autocracy whioh the disloyal predicted as the consequence of invoking the military power to prevent the secession of the Southern folates. PROFANE FEMALES. From the Louimil $ Courier-JottrnaU We have never for a moment doubted that every one of the shrieking sisterhood would ultimately learn to swear. Mrs. Elizabeth Cady Stanton, one of the oldest and toughest of them, has got bo far along that she begins to look upon profanity as almost pious. Iu one of her recent letters from the Northwest to the Revolution she says: "Uelng Informed the special train would leave at 6, 1 was ready at that hour, but the conductor being drunk, had Kone oil' an hour before, and was anx iously inquiring for me at every stopping place along the Una At the end of the route a large audience waited my coming, wy son ana lyceuni managers telegraphing, "Where la the train?'' "Where la Mrs. Stanton?" At the other end, I stood tired, disgusted. indignant, replying, "Here I am, but where in the train?" At 8 o'clock, as no train returned, I went back to the hotel, bag and baggage in a good state of mind to say it) while the audience at Moatl- cello dispersed at 9 o'clock, curalug ad womonkiad." ' When Mr. Elizabeth Cady Stanton, quietly nursing his sickly infant in - his widowed home, read that letter, what must he have been "in a good state of mind to say ? He must be a very strange epeoimen of hen pecked pusillanimity if he doesn't think that it is bad enough for women to go straggling about the country alone, haranguing a mob at every town, but that it is a great deal worse for them to hang around railroad depots at night and swear like a trooper when the trains fail to arrive on time. If we must nave the ballot for women let ns postpone it until we shall have read the obituary of the last of the women, male and female, who are now clamoring for it, so greatly to the disgust of all sensible people.

To whom it may eonrtm: All tbe leading medical authorities recognize the value of diOusive stimulants. Numerous eminent pbysieiaae and surgeons might be named who have ad roc .tod tbolr employment In the treatment of a large elaas of disorders. No Dispensary is considered eomplete without them. Tbey are prescribed in all publio and private Hospltxls, and administered by all bedside practitioners. llut the difficulty baa been to obtain Alcoholic Xiquors Pure. The pnngent aroma of the fnsel oil and biting aolde pre sent in all of them can be eoented as the glaaa is raised to tbe lips. The nauseous flaver of tnese aotlve poisons la perceptible to the palate, and a burning sensation in the stomach attests their exlstenoe whon the noxious draught baa gone down. Paralysis, idiocy, insanity and deata are the pernioions fruits of suoh potations. Medical science asks for a pare stimulant to use as a specific, whioh, while it diffuses itself through the system more rapidly than any other known agent, is brought into direct and active contaot with the seat of disease. It is the property of the stimulant to diffuse, and by the aid of its peculiar nutritious component parts to Invigorate, regulate, counteract and restore, and it is by the happy nnion of the principle of activity with tne principles of invigoration and restoration that enables a 1UMI2 WHISKY To acoouiplish beneQoial results.
