Fob the moment the ever-changing kaleido scope of French politioa brings into promi nence an apparent contest on the part of M. Thiers to maintain a republic, of whioh he is the official head, against the Orleanist princes, with whom he formerly sympathized. The position of M. Thiers Bomewhat resem bles that held by General Prim during the Spanish interregnum, but it presents this difference that while Prim pro fessed a constant anxiety to secure a proper occupant for the Spanish throne (his final selection of a prince of the house of Ilohenzollern being the immediate pretext of the war between Germany and France), M. Thiers declares that he is anxious to make the republic perpetual, despite the existence of candidates for the French throne who, on personal grounds, he might fairly be pre sumed to favor. II is commonly and justly accused of having so far betrayed the revolu tionists of 1830 as to dear Louis Philippe's pathway to the throne. After the revolution of 1848 had deposed Louis Philippe, M. Thiers made a desperately courageous effort to secure the French throne for Louis Philippe's grandson, the legitimate heir of the Orleans line; and yet, at this partioular juncture, the old de votee of Orleanism seems to have become its most effective antagonist. A cable telegram states that the vote abrogating the proscrip tion of the Orleanist princes was passed only on a condition, exacted by M. Thiers, that they should not sit in the Assembly and not enter into any intrigue against the Republic But past experience indicates that such pledges were no more sacred to French poli ticians than divers oaths; and the real mean ing of all the late proceedings may be a gradual preparation of France for the esta blishment of a constitutional monarchy. THE OAS LOAN. The Gas Ring achieved a victory in Common Council yesterday, in the passage of the ordi nance creating a loan of half a million dollars, to be expended by the King in such a manner as the individuals composing it may propose. The Select Branch, however, has not yet worked itself np the point of brav ing public opinion by comp ying with the demands of the Ring, and the ordinance was accordingly postponed. We hope sincerely that there will be enough honesty and enough pluck in Select Counoil to resist to the last this attaok upon the pockets of the tax-payers, and that a deter mined effort will be made to prove to the Gas Trustees that they are the servants and not the masters of the public. The destruction of the Mar ket street gas works without consul tation with Councils,and the demand for half a million dollars without the submission of estimates and specifications, are gross out rages, which should bring upon the trustees ' the full weight of publio indignation. If there is any inconvenience felt throughout the city on aocount of an insufficient supply of gas, there certainly will be such a popular demand for reform in the administration of the cas works as will be likely to lead to important results. If such inconvenience does oocur, Councils will be in no degree to blame for it, and the members of the Select branch will only be doing their duty to themselves and to the public if they refuse positively to give the money asked for, unless they not only are assured that it will be expended honestly, but that they will have some control over its expenditure. The city has been afflicted long enough under the pre sent system of managing the gas works, and it is high time that a determined effort was made to break np the ring, and to give ns an honest and capable administration of the af fairs of the gas works. AN UNASPIRING TRIO. Fir.sT comes our friend John W. Geary, with the assertion, "I am not a candidate for any office under the State or National Govern ment, and I will not aooept any office." Then comes the philosopher of the Tribune, with the plump declaration, "I trust never henceforth to be an aspirant for any office or political position whatever. And now comes the martial Sherman, who announces that he "never has been and never will be a candidate for the Presidency." These declarations are all emphatio in their way, and, taken alone, without regard to the character of the three men, we might infer from them that Presidential conventions would have to go further and fare worse. But they are not all as sententious in their speech as President Grant, and the context has important bearing on the quoted pas sages. Says Geary, furthermore: "I don't want any office, and will not aooept any, unless" that'B just what's the matter with Geary always "unlesi ray fellow-citizens drag me out, whioh if they do, I will try to do whatever lies in my power ia the future, as I have in the past." That is ta say, Geary will "try" to do something if gonic)ody will have the kindness to "draj him "out. Shalio beaded, shallow-hearted, shallow-souled, ia ordinate!' vain, inconceivably weak, as vacil lating as a weathercock, as treacherous as a Camancbe, as full of wind as of vanity,' an nucb fitted for the Presidency as he i f r the Gubernatorial chair, this mau John VT, deary would sell biniseJf to the Devil, if th Devil in return would "dray" Lieu "out" of Lis Imbecility and set Llui up oa the fctepa of THE DMLYJ5VBN1NQ TELEGRAPH PHILADELPHIA , FRIDAY, the White House. But the Devil ia not a fool, and Geary will never be President. Says Greeley furthermore: "Bat I fully purpose also never to deoline any duty or re sponsibility which my political friends shall see fit to devolve upon me, of which I shall be abla to fulfil the obligations without neglecting more imperative duties." This means, of course, that if any exalted func tions should, through the unsolicited agency of political friends, "devolve" upon the Philosopher, he would not shirk their performance, provided always he would still have time enough at his disposal to write a daily leader for the Tribune, and indulge in a semi-occasional disquisition on "What I Don't Know About Farming." At the time of writing his Kansas letter Mr. Greeley 4 'had not yet formed a deoided opinion as to the man who ought to be our next Repub lican candidate for President, but" here it comes again, with all its destructive force 'but it seems to me advisable that he should be a steadfast, constant believer in the good old Whig doctrine of one Presidential term." Which the same U. S. Grant is not, and Ilorace Greeley is. So, while the philosopher of the Tribune is "not yet" fully prepared to announce his belief in the expediency of having exeoutive functions devolved" upon himself, he is fully prepared to assert his belief that they will have "devolved" upon President Grant ong enough by the close of his present term. Of course, Greeley wants to be President who does not, when even John W. Geary can have such aspirations? But the office must "devolve" npon him, and must not interfere with the "more imperative duties" of the Tribune office and the farm at Chappaqaa. Ia all this, the Philosoper is perfectly honest. If the people rose en masse and foroed him to seek shelter in the Executive Mansion on peril of his life, it would be harder work to get him out before his time was up than it was to drive him in. But, if the door stood wide open to the first comer, and no man raised his voice for or against him, it is ex tremely doubtful if he would take the trouble to walk in and turn the key af ter him. Says Sherman furthermore: "If nomi nated by either party, I should peremptorily deoline, and even if elected unanimously I should decline to serve." And to clinch this plump avowal, he adds: "If you can find language stronger to convey this meaning, you are at liberty to use it." In simple truth, this blunt soldier does not want to be Presi dent. The Democracy will evidently have to accept him at his word, for be speaks of 'either party, and fulminates his declination at both and all combined. He will not even be driven into office. If the six million voters of the country should lift up their voices in absolute harmony, General Sherman will not submit to having Presidential cares "devolve" npon him. If he should be driven into the White House for safety, he will crawl out the back window and scale the Washington Monu ment to escape the unanimous importunity of the nation. There was perhaps no necessity lor him to be quite so emphatic; but be bad doubtless lead Geary's speech and Greeley's letter, and felt obliged to make his meaning clearly un derstood. And in this he is wise in his day and generation, wiser than some of his con temporaries. He can afford to be oontent. Geary can not, and Greeley will not. Geary can not, because he has gone from bad enough to worse from the start; while Greeley has always made it a point never to shirk a new responsibility that "devolves" npon him, unless it demands the neglect of "more im perative duties." TEE RIGHTS OF WOMEN. The rights of women to follow lucrative em' ployments for which they are well fitted, but which have hitherto been to a great extent, if not entirely, monopolized by men, have been clearly recognized by three important conven tions now in session; and we reoord the faot with great satisfaction, as it is an indication that a cause- which has substantial merits, despite the nonsense uttered by maay of its most zealous advocates, is really making headway in the right direction. The exigen cies of modern social organization are making it more and more necessary every day that the opportunities for women to earn their bread and butter by honorable labor should be greatly increased, and the mean and petty spirit which has been manifested to wards women by the members of some professions which lay claim to the titles of learned and liberal is in tbe highest degree discreditable. The very fact that women who desire to do good and credit able work outside of the kitchen and nursery are snubbed and contemned as they are by those of whom better things might be ex pected, renders it the more gratifying when a full and fair recognition of the claims of women workers is made by such iufiu ential assemblies as the American Insti tute of Homceopathy and the National Photographic Association now in session in this city, and the Iuternational Typographical Uiiion, which is holding a convention in Bal timore. In the Photographers' Convention there are a number of women delegates, who do tot push themselves unduly into the fore ground, but who take an active and intelli gent interest in the proceedings, and who are treated with tbe greatest rspect by their male associates. In the Typographical Convention there are also women delegates, and yester day one of them offered an important resolu tion, that was adopted, to the effect that the International Union shall recommend the subordinate unions to receive, as far as prac ticable, Ur ion girls in offices on an equality with men. "."be Ilowoeopatbio Institute yes- terdsy adminibtered a rebuke to some of the old school Mtjsuc'aiiou by adopting, after a pj iiittd debate, a resolution declaring that rropulf uuauuBd puvBioland, men or Women, are eligible to membership, fcLd by admitting three women who have graduated at medical schools of good ataiiding. Great discredit has been Liongtt upon the women's rights movement bj the chuLora of those who pretend that the suffrage is the one thing needful, by the free- love doctrines, and by the disreputable cha racters of some of tho professed leaders of the women s movement, and by an evident desire on the part of many women to enjoy a license to imitate the worst vioes of menjbut the pub lic should not lose sight of the fact that there are, besides these, an ' immense number of earnest and large-minded women who reallv desire to advance the interests of their sex by opening rew avenues of employ ment for women, who are at present unable to obtain work except at starvation wages, and who only ask a fair field and no favor. Such women are deserving of the heartiest encouragement and support; and as the well- being of cur social system will, in the futare, in a large measure depend upon their success, it is with great pleasure that we ell Mnt,ion to the evidence Wore us that the real wo men's rights cause, the right to perform honest work and to get good wngas for it, is making substantial progress The Washington contractors buve resumed work, a strong police force being on hand to protect the laborers from being assaulted by the strikers. The latter demand $2 per day for eight hours' labor, while those who are at work receive il'50 per day. The Governor of the District seems to be pursuing a proper course, despite the denunciations of a Wash ington journal. It is his main duty to protect the laborers who are willing to work for lower prices than those demanded by the strikers, and this duty ho is performing faith fully. The strikers have a perfect right to ask all they choose for their services, and to take all they can honestly get, but they have no more right to prevent other men from working than they have to burn down houses. A workingman's capital consists of his capacity for labor. Let him make the most of this capacity, sell it in the dearest market, and enhance its value by all legiti mate methods. But kicks, blows, and mur derous attacks upon other workingmen whose rivalry is dreaded, are not legitimate methods for enhancing the price of labor; and the wholo force of civil authority should be employed, whenever its employ ment becomes necessary, to put down such riotous and diabolical demonstrations. As well might a merchant seek to destroy the stock of a business competitor whose rivalry he dreads, as one laborer attempt, by force and violence, to keep another laborer from working for compara tively low wages. Nothing could well be more dangerous to any community than a toleration of the absurd and dangerous doc trine that any set of men can fix prices for their products or labor by sheer terrorism. The coal regions of Pennsylvania have suf fered so dreadfully from strikes mainly be cause the local and State authorities have shirked their duty in the matter referred to, while tbe Washington strike will apparently be speedily ended by the prompt and proper action of the Governor of the Distriot. On Monday evening a publio meeting will be held at tho Academy of Musio, under the auspioes of the Commercial Exchange and a number of our citizens who are interested in the prosperity of Philadelphia and Pennsyl vania, to consider the relations between the development of the Northwest by the build ing of the Northern Pacific Railroad and the prosperity of the trade, manufactures, and commerce of our State and city. The meeting will be addressed by Hon, William D. Kelley and by Hon. Selucius Gar- fielde, the Congressional delegate from Wash ing Territory. Both of these gentlemen pos sess extensive information with regard to the Northwest, and their addresses will undoubt edly be both interesting and instructive, While the Northern Pauifio Railroad is a na tional, it is also essentially a Philadelphia en terprise, and this city and State will derive great benefit from it, provided our citizens take the aotive interest they should in its progress. As the meeting on Monday evening will be especially for the purpose of explaining the relations between the development of tbe Northwest by means of the Northern Facifio Railroad and the future prosperity of the industries of Phila delphia and Pennsylvania, it is to be hoped that there will be a large attendance of our business men and ot tiers who have the ad vancement of Philadelphia interests at heart, Tbe proceedings of the Rabbinical Con ference at Cincinnati affords anothor illus tration of the tendency of tbe system of re ligious freedom prevailing in the United States to promote modifications of the old usages of the respective sects. This confe rence has formally decided that in the most ancient of all the religious denominations organized in this country, "a modern prayer book is to be furnished, in whioh all allusion to the return of Jesm to Jerusalem and the idea of sac-rinse and of a personal Messiah are to be omitted," while "the service is to be largely in the verna cular instead of the Hebrew language," and various other changes are to be made. In cations where the Jevrs are persecuted, or where they are objects of political or sooial proscription, it is a matter of pride with them to remain steadfast in every detail of the faith and customs of their ancestors; while here, where they are left in perfect liberty to abide by or depart from any or all of these details, the disposition constantly increases to consult personal convenience, taste, or reason on points which are not deemed vitally essential. The Anniveesaby Exercises of the Old Mn's llome were celebrated yesterday. The objects of this institution are so laudable that it deserves to be well supported by wealthy and charitable citizens. Age and want are always an ill-matched pair, but their union is especially painful in the many cases of worthy men who, after making a valiant struggle for many years in the battle of life, fall as victims at a time when their faculties are impaired and their energies paralyzed. Tbe good old men who are destitute of money, relatives, and rich friends should be well provided for. The Republican State Committer ban at last been fully organized by the appointment of the Hon.

TUB KE7 ORLEANS, MOBILE, AND TEXAS RAILltOAD COMPANY Arebnlldlngatrnnk iin, connecting Pfew Orleans with Mobile on tbe east, and giving the ONLY RAILROAD CONNECTION Between tbe former city anl the great and most productive State of Texas on the west, the total dis tance from Mobile to Bonaton being 4T5 miles. The Company Is compoaoi of strong Northern capitalists, who have already expended nearly TES MILLION DOLLARS or tbetr own fands in the construction of ihe line. They have bout about 925 miles from Mobile westward, and secured by pnr chase of securities and made provision for the thorough repair and equipment of the ior miles con stituting the Texas division; leaving but 140 miles -- hunt. To Complete tho ZZntire Road. It Is believed that no other railroad corporation In the country has evr made so large ati expenditure from Its own means before ottering any of Its secu rities to the public The Company now offer for sale the Eight Per Coot. Mortgage Bonds upon the Louisiana division of 226 'j miles from New Oi leans to the Sablue River. This will probably be the most valuable portion of the whole line, as it will be the only rail communication by which the enor rnous productions of Texas can reach the Southern metropolis. So important is this road considered to Louisiana, that the State has made very liberal grants In aid of the enterprise, by direct donations, by endorsement of its bonds, and by subscription to the stock of the Company, amounting In ail to over eight million dollars. The Bonds now offered are of two classes: FIRST MORTGAGE BONDS, to the amount of 112,600 per mile, and SECOND MORTGAGE BONDS, to an equal amonnt, both principal and Interest guaranteed by the State of Louisiana. The price of the two classes Is the same, and subscribers can take their choice. The Bonds are only In the denomination of $1000, or 200 each, Interest payable January and July, at the rate of eight per cent, currency in New York, or seven per cent, gold In London, at the option of the holder, at the time each coupon la due. Bonds can be registered, If desired. NO BETTER SECURITY HAS BEEN OFFERED to investors. The line Is a good and 1 nportant one, and the stockholders have proved their determina tion and ability to carry the work to an early and successful completion, by tbe very large amount t hey have themselves pat Into It. The Bonds are largely profitable, as well as en tirely safe. One thousand dollars invested in these eight per cent, bonds will give the purchaser more than seventy-seven per cent, greater annual Interest than the same smount Invested In the new Govern ment Five Per Cents, into which the Government Sixes are being fnnded by the Secretary of the Treasury. At the same price, an sper cent, currency lone bond Is far cheaper than a 7 per cent, gold one. CnlrnlAtlnor a r At urn tn anprln mumnntg In Throa years, and taking the time that the bonds of the New Orleans, Mobile, and Texas Railroad have to run 45 . years we find that by compounding the interest of each, every six months, at T per cent., au 8 per cent currency bond at OO will give return ' of $2011-18 MORE than a 7 per cent, gold bond at tlie same price, or nearly three time the amount of the original Invest' ment. While the purchaser of the 8 per cent, bonds of this company can realize this special profit, he also holds the option of taking advantage of any tempo rary advance in gold, as he has choice, at every separate conpon day, of gold interest at T per cent, or currency interest at 8 per cent. Tbe Bonds are dated May 1, 1871. The first cou pon will, therefore, be a tractlon&l one, running from May 1 to July 1.
