Cl TV HA ILK OA D CM R S. Never full, pack 'cm in; Move up, fat men; squeeze in, tbin; Trunks, valises, boxes, bundles, up gaps as on she tumbles. Market-bankets without number, Owners easy, nod in Blumbcr; Thirty seated, forty standing. A dozen or more on either landing. Old man lifts his signal finger, Car slacks np, but not a linger, He's jerked aboard by sleeve or shoulder, Shoved inside to sweat and smoulder; Toes are trod on, hats are smashed, Dresses soiled, hoop-skirts crashed. Thieves ftre busy, bent on plunder; Still we rattle on like thunder. Tacked together unwashed bodies, Bathed in fumes of whisky-toddies, Tobacco, garlic, cheese, and lager bier Terfume the heated atmosphere; Old boots, pipes, leather, and tan, And, if in luck, a "soap-fat" man. Aren't we jolly ? What a blessing ! A horse-car hash, with such a dressing! Appleton,' Journal. THE L O UIS YILLE CA XA L. Frovx the Chicago Tribune. The Louisville and Portland Canal cost about $5,000,000. The United States owns all the stock save three shares. The canal ceased many years ago to pay interest upon its cost. The managers, therefore, proposed to enlarge it and improve it, with the hope of increasing its business, and Congress was induced to vote the entire earnings of the canal to reimburse the cost of tbo enlarge ment. A debt of $ 1,J00,0()0 was incurred by those engaged in the work; but the business of the canal continued to decrease, until its annual earnings are not more than equal to the cost of repairs and management. It will require $1,200,000 to complete the work, of which $1,000,000 has already been handed over by the Secretary of War for that purpose. The cities of Cincinnati and Louisville are clamoring t9 have the Government complete the enlargement, and, of course, pay the outstanding debt of tl,!00,000, with several years' accumulated interest. We see that Mr. Senator Sherman, of Ohio, Las reported in favor of taking !f 2."0,000 of the revenue collected from ex cessive taxation, and sqaundering it on this canal abortion, and that the House Com mittee on Commerce has made a similar re commendation. We hope there is enough in tegrity in one or the other house to arrest this waste of money. We do not believe that this appropriation for this canal could get a re spectable numerical vote in either house, if it stood alone, but it is made an item in a combination of other measures equally un justifiable, and members, are thus, for local considerations, induced to vote this money. The Louisville and Port land Canal served its purpose until rail roads carried oil' the once extensive commerce of the Ohio river. Enlarging the canal will not increase the number of boats on the river. The trouble is not in the di mensions of the canal, but in the falling oil' of the number of boats requiring it. No trade is lost on account of the size of the canal, and no enlargement of it will induce men to build boats for which there is no business. There is a railroad bridge over the river, connecting Kentucky and Indiana, and that tells the whole story why the revenues of the canal do not pay the expense f main taining it. The folly of this expenditure is shown in the fact that Congress has already voted the entire revenues of the canal to any person who will improve it and enlarge it, and no one will take them. Tho revenues of the canal, when enlarged, will not pay the inter est on the additional expenditure; and when it was proposed some time ago to make a free grant of the whole work to the Board of Trade of Louisville, there was a vehement protest from that body, and from all others along the river, declaring that the canal was not and never would be able to reimburse the cost of improving it. In the face of this candid acknowledgment Congress is now asked to vote the money to complete the work, and, as proprietor, assume the debt of $1, (100,000 already expended and lost. All the legislation needed is a joint resolu tion authorizing the Secretary of War to cede and convey to tho State of Kentucky, or to the city of Louisville or Cincinnati, or all of them, all the right, interest, and property of tho United States in and to- that canal, with authority to levy and collect tolls to reim burse whatever sums may be expended in keeping the same in repair, or in enlarging, or otherwise improving, said canal. If no one will accept the canal, .which cost five million dollars, on these terms, that fact ought to satisfy Congress that any further expenditure of public money on the work will be a wanton waste. Our statesmen seem to think that the utility of an expenditure is of no concern, so long as they have the power to add another tax to raise the means. One of the best means to reduce taxation is to vote down every expenditure not indispensa ble to meet some national necessity. A7?. GLADSTONE'S WEAKNESSES. It is part of Mr. Gladstone's nature to be tremendously in earnest, whether he has just taken to a new idea or not, and he likes to 4 think himself consistent. 1 ou would never suppose, to hear him lecturing the radicals, that he had ever given way on any leading subject in his life. Some Tory hinted last week that the Premier was betraying the Church. "Wait for twenty-four hours, said Mr. Gladstone, "and you will soe." Next day a motion was to be brought forward for the disestablishment of the Church in Wales, where nearly all the people are Dis senters, and it was to that Mr. Glad stone alluded. Sure enough, when the debate came on, Mr. Gladstone was loftily Church; was eloquent on the virtues of an establishment, and was shocked at those who would let each sect take care of itself. That he had himself been the prime agent in dis establishing a Church only last year was ig nored. Sitting on his bench, with his face turned up to the lighted ceiling, Mr. Glad stone does not look a popular man. Ho sug gests suppressed wrath, iron determination, inflexible gravity; but none of those are very lovable characteristics. He is always at a high pitch. There is no play in him. The other members of the Cabinet, whenever they can, sit a littlo away from him. To touch his coat would be a sacrilege. Giving him every credit for his great services, I am bound to say that I, for one, feel a little bit angry sometimes when I see him assamiug the Iiosition of a man who has had nothing to earn. In private life he has the oddest friend ships. One is for the once-notorious "Laura Rell" now the wife of an ex-officer of the ' Guords, and a curious mixture of evangelical piety and the vanity of the world. Mr. Glad stone and Lis family are intimate with this lady, who preaches occasionally, and who certainly dresses very beautifully. You don't fete him at the theatre, and he is not expected tt tie Derby He shows unvh nyrnpRtby Jir wejkji,u.tu, ana gets cpiizzed behind hj back for his display of it. A sardonic remark is attributed to Mr. Lowe. That gentleman is one of the Trustees of the British Museum, and the proposal was made in Parliament to open the building in the evenings. Mr. Lowe, as trustee, is opposed to the idea in consequence of the danger of fire. He was speaking of the debate to a friend, when he observed: "I didn't know Gladstone's opinion, but he was aware the trustees were against it, and so I assumed it was all light. But when Mr. began to drop his h's in the debate, and say he 'oped the 'Ouse would not be in a 'urry, but would consider the importance of the hobject,' I trembled. I saw Gladstone sit up and listen eagerly, and I felt sure he'd give M ay and agree to the proposal because it had been advocated in bad English; I am glad to say, though, that he joined me in refusing."
