The president of the Western Union Tele

nearly one-third of the business of that oom

Messrs. Wilson and Brown, of the Maine
Legislature, are friends no more. One is a
Democrat and thile other is a reenbacker,
and recently ithey have been acting together.
Now all this is over. In a debate the other
day Brown made a reflection upon Wilson,
who promptly responded, "It's a lie, and you
knoy it!" and followed this up with, "You
are a humbug and a cheat, and I hurl it in
your Infamous face." Both men yet live.
Even the ehlillren seem to have become
burglars in New York. The telegraph tells
us of a most desperate hurglary committed In
that city by a girl of fifteen, who, it seems,
had already served a term in the penitentiary
for this crime; and the New York anm of the
eighteenth gives an account of a skillful bur
glary also in New York recently committed
by five bo)ys, the oldest of whom was only
nineteen years old, 'Tih children of Now
York are evidentally improving.
,Judge Settle of Florida is resolved to make
a better record than Billings or W loods, in the
matter of political prosoeutlons. He has
started earlier and worked more enegetlcally
than either of these, and is consequently
far more adiivaed in his political work,
having already convicted and sentenced a
number of leduling IDe'mocrat to the peniten
tiary. The clerk, sheriff and justice of the
peace of Ifrevard countty have just been
lodged in the Albany Penitentiary for a term
of three years, for violating the Federal
election laws. Quite a number of other om
dale in the Second Congressilonal District of
Florida, are already under indictment, and
are only too likely to meet with a similar
fate, unless Congress interferes, and stops
futher prosecut Ions.
The Legislature of Temnnssee is a touchy
and sensitive body, particularly on the State
debt question. Last Sunday the Rev. Dr.
Hoyt, of the First Presbyterian Church of
Nashville, following the example of Ieecher,
Talmage et al., who allow no question of pub
lic interest to pass without dlscussion in the
pulpit, preached on the subject of the State
debt, taking an energetic position In opposi
tion to that assumed by the Legislature.
This seemed to greatly annoy that body,
which, next, day, passed a resolution censur
ing the reverend gentleman for interfering in
politics. Seettodll thoughts, however, pre
vailed, anti the, next day they repealed the
resolution of enrsure. The Rev. Mr. Hoyt
can now preach on the State debt or any other
political question ihe chooses( without arous
ing the ange'r of the L.egid'lature.
The New York Iime(- has the queer story
that the anti-Chinese bill was favored by the
Chinese Minister to this country, and engin
eered through Congress by that gentleman.
The Timeu idea is that the Chinese govern
ment still cling- to the traditions of the past
concerning the exclusion of foreigners from
the sacred soil of ('hina, and thinks that it
Ssees an opportunity of getting rid of the
"outside harharians'" through this bill, since,
if the United States prohibits Chinese from
comning into this country, it may expect re
ciprocal treatment prohibiting Americans
from trading in China. Secretary Evarts, on
the other hand, is bitterly opposed to the bill
and is using ll his inflnence with the Presi
eant to persuade him to veto it. It is gener
thoug~ht that he will sooeed in his plan.
loot ou for California indignation.
The March number of the North American
Review contains an interesting diseussieon
on the question of negro suffrage,
elicited by the editor of that periodical. It
was participated in by Messrs. Lamar,
Stephens and Hampton on one side, and
Messrs. Blaine, Wendell Phillips and Garfield
on the othler, Mr. Blair taking part as a sort
of free lance, and differing with both schools.
The questions propounded to this "sympo
slum" were: 1. "Ought the negro to be dis
franchised?" 2. "Ought he to have been en
franchised?" As might have been expeoted,
the negative of the first proposition and the
affirmative of the second is taken with singu
lar unanimity by all the parties to this dis
oussion, though the processes of reasoning by
which the same conclusion is reached are as
diverse as possible.
The second of these questions belongs to
history, and has no spoliticl signifcanc·e
whatever, ald from the unanimity with
which both the IRepublican and Democratle
leaders have agreed that the franchise of the
negro should not he disturbed, we hardly
think that the first is of any more political
Imprtlance. We do not suppose that any
Intelligent negro has any mnlsgivings as to the
perpetuation of his political rights and ptrlvi
leges; yet, if there be any who has, he should
certainly he reassured by the views ex
'r"wsed try these dialecticians, who are regard
ed its among the greatest, as well as tihe
most sinceure, of their respective political
The truth is that negro suffrage, manhool
sulffrage, or whatever else it may be called,
has become a principle of our constitution, as
firmly fixed as any other enunciated in that
Instrument, and with the advantage over
many others of having behind it a positive
element of power that is self-protecting, and
which party leaders will be exceedingly wary
of provoking to open hostility.
Really, the only scholarly production oliclt
ed is that of Mr. Lamar, and his argument
upon one side and that of Mr. Blaine on the
other embody the opinions of their respective
parties at this time. The people will align
themselves, naturally, with one (or the
other, according tot their political bias. Blaine,
speaking for the stalwart Republicans, of
which he is the shining light, urges
that the ballot is essential to the negro as a
protection against the constant and natural
aggression of his former naster, who will
constantly endeavor to recover in polities tiit
actual control lost by the emancipation acts.
Following out this ibla, Blaine contends that
the negro 1s an essential Integer in the for
mation of public sentiment, and that if he be
deprived of his vote he is remitted to the con
tiltion of moral irresponsibility from which
he had been raised by the influence con
ferred upon him by his enfranchisement.
Bilalne's purpose all through appears to be
simply to vindicate, or rather to excuse, the
resolutions introdiuced by hint in the early
part of the present session of t!ongress, out of
which the Teller committee was evolved. M r.
Lamar, on the other hand, devotes hinmself to
the implied proposition made in Blaine's
speech that the black vote at the South is
merely an echo and repetition of the white
vote. The following extract will sufllelen lyi
indicate the tone of Mr. Lamar's reasoning:
"I will indulge in neither invective nor de
nunelation. I will simply take 'he late govern
ment of South Carolina or of Louisieana., or of
ther States under similar rule. ncud de. Cribe it
inl language that Mr. IBlaine may himself select.
When he has told its history I will ask him
whether he would willngly as a patriotic Amer
ican, desire to see his own 4 ate, or any other of
the free States. reduced to such a level? I am
not afraid of his answer, or that of any maln
who has been bred utider the traditions of a
virtuous civilization. Then I will say to him:
This, it is tine, is a painfnl result; but whb.n
you put, the a hlot in the hands of an imlloranlt
negro majority as a means of educat.iou and
progress you miust. be vartient while they leirn

Mr. Blair, dlfferlng from all the other dis
putants, took the position that the negro
Sshould be disfranchised. He saw in him, so
long as he held the ballot, nothing but an
- elemnent of disturbtance, and one which had a
'tendency to lower the moral and political
standard of public opinion in America. i!e
Swould be a pierpetual source and provocation
of Federal interference in local politlcs, the
tendency of which was all towards centrali
- zation. There is certainly force in all that

- are utterly beyond attainment, and are, there

Prince Bismarck has received a succession
of reverses in his war on the German SoeiaT
ists. His anti-Socialist bill was tyrannical
and unjust and,like all such laws, overreached
itself and reacted in favor of the Socialists.
A few weeks ago it looked as if the Chancel
lor would succeed in his enterprise of crush
ing out Socialism in the Empire. He had
suspended a score of Socialist papers, broken
up several hundred clubs and banished a
number of the leaders. Itis all changed now.
Several late elections to fill vacancies in the
Reichstag show that the Socialist candidates
are stronger than ever; a number of proeecu
tions against newspapers for alleged Insults
to the authorities have resulted in verdiots of
not guilty despite all the efftdo of the gov
ernment to the contrary; and, lastly, the
Relihstag has positlvely and emphatically
declined to expel Socialist deputies, as com
manded by Bismarck.
Our jury system was well illustrated in an
accident which occurred the other day in the
trial of Mrs. Jennie Smith In New York for
the murder of her husband. The case was
well under way, when the curious conduct of
mne of the jurors attracted general attention.
An examination showed that he labored under
the delusion that he himself was the criminal
on trial; indeed, he consented to plead guilty.
A further Investigation showed that the testi
mony adduced in the case had unsettled his
mind and wrecked his reason. The dlefense
was willing to go on with the trial with one
crazy juryman. but the judge held that,
although a semi-idlooti juror was always wel
come in an important trial, he could not
stretch the point so as to admit a maniac to
the jury box.
Jludge Bond has sententrd nineteen I)emo
crats of Baltimore to prison for terms ranging
from ione to six months. Thi offllnse of these
men consisted in speaking disrespectfully to
marshals and supervisors on election
day, for refusing to allow thenm inside the
polling places, for resisting tleir demands to
see the inside of hallot-loxeo , etc. Thus the
