The meanest .'trait in the human char'
aco r 13 a disposition to worship the ris
ing instead o the setting' sun. When, on
t iie eighth of , 'November, it was universally
believed thu Samuel J. Tilden had been un
luetionaby elected President of the United
States, wvrasites were numerous. Men who
had oprosed his nomination and contributed
nothiprg to secure his election lavished upon
him he most eloquent adulation. When his
starwas in Uie ascendant, even men who
votod against him, all of a sudden became
Lis' enthusiastic admirers. But as it was a
mercenary friendship, it blazed up and flick
ered out just as Tilden 's prospects for inau
guration waned or brightened. When final
ly the conspirators consummated their vil
lainy, the flunkies turned their backs upon
him and discovered new virtues in the im
marulate Ilayes. The following extract, from
the Cliicai? Times, shows the contempt
which Govrnor Heudricks has for this class
of toadivs: "Kx-Governor Hendricks

ties. In the senate the Republican were ac-
ensusmed to regard him as a conservative
in his speeches he wes the quintessence of
pat'iilcutiun in all matters of heated contrO'
ersy. i'rivate and political huppiness to
hiin always meant prudent compromise.
Even in a political compain he was rarely
' known to attack men. He denounced mea
sures and policies freely never men. Hencc

will be apt to aston ik his iellow-partisans of
the Democratic Ftripe. lie 'defended' Mr.
Tilden from the aspersions cast upon him by
'a certain class of disappointed Democratic
politicians and newspapers.' Just who these
politicians were the interviewer seems to have
forgotten to extract from the unusually com
municative de jure Vice-President. But he
proceeds to inform us that Mr. Hendricks
-was confident in his raind that had Mr. Til
den been permitted to take the place to which
he was elected, there wouldn't have been
. a Democratic politician in the coun
try, nor a Democratic journal, to say
anything but eulogy of him. Not unlike
ly, since he would undoubtedly have gone
straightway to work to give the country the
peace and prosperity which comes from
1 - peace which by a quarter million majority
he was elected to do. But the remarkable
thing in Hendricks's confidential talk with
the Omaha reporter was this: 'Cox, and
Knott, and Blackburn, and Springer, and all
the others, curs with Democratic collars on
their necks, would have been found suppliant
and whining at his feet, thankful for the
bone of patronage that was bestowed upon
them. This extraordinary and enkindling
sentiment was supplemented by a declara ion
that in 1880 four years hence when Tilden
comes to his own, these same faultfinding
partisans will be fawning at the seat of the
triumphant Uncle Samuel. Meanwhile, how
do the brethren in general feel?" The
Appeal was one of the first papers to es
pouse the cause of Tilden, and defeat
has only intensified our admiration for his
character. Had he been inaugurated Presi
dent the Hampton and Nicholls governments
would have long since been recognized, a
thousand reforms would have been made,
and tbe country would have been tranquil
ized and prosperous. Mr. Tilden has done
nothing to impair the confidence which in-d-ieed
the people to elect him President of
the United States on the seventh of Novem
ber last. For many months he was the tar-
gat of unexampled abuse, and passed through
the fiery ordeal with no stain upon his honor.
Tbe future prominence of Governor Tilden
depends much upon himself. He is, no
doubt, greatly soured by the treachery which
the cautious and prudent Hendricks rebukes,
and by the corruptions which robbed him of
the office to which his countrymen elected
him. But if he should, like General Jack
son under similar circumstances, appeal to
the people, he will find, as did General Jack
son, that there is an innate sense of justice
in the hearts 01 tne nonest masses

The reports of the Knglish board of trade tell
the same story. The February figures of 1S76
say that month's export of cotton piece ioods
was 303,511,700 yards, but for February,
177, only 2?7,C04,000 yards, a decrease of
15,17,700 yards. Inquiry on the subject is
proceeding, and the London Times makes
this significant admission: "We hear omi
nous- complaints that we are undersold
in cheapness, and surpassed in the excel
lence of our manufactures." It is of in
terest to know what a sensible, in
teuigent English merchant has to
say to all this. In the New York
Chronicle, of Saturday, we find our curiosity
satisfied: it has a communication upon the
subject, from W. W. Beggs, Esq., of Liver
pool. That gentleman claims that it costs
more to build a cotton-mill in New England
than in Great Britain; the interest on money
is higher; the mills are obliged to have dye
and bleaching works attached to them, which
requires greater outlay oi capital than in
England; then there are dry-hous and
bleaching-yards, conducted independently of
the mills and at less cost; the water power
gained by costly canals is probably as dear as
steam in a country where one dollar to one
dollar and a half will buy a ton of coal ; labor
is dearer in America than in England. The
only advantage, then, to the American man
ufacturer, is in the price of cotton; but the
English manufacturer finds that the price of
cotton in Liverpool is generally below the
parity in New York on the same day, and New
England buys cotton in the south only by
paying a higher price tor it than the export
ers can afford to do. Every cotton-giowing
country sends its product to Liverpool, and,
as a rule, " prices are lowest where the
largest stock is," and English merchants who
have imported cotton have lost money. To
all this the American may respond: "The
proof of the pudding is in the eating Ameri
can goods outsell English ones, ot similar
quality, in the English market." The Eng'
lish merchant proceeds to say that, beside
the obstacles presented by our own naviga
tion laws and protective system, the sale of
American cotton goods would be restricted
by the want of demand for the qualities we
manufacture. This is a part of the subject
worthy of consideration, and we copy Mr,
Beggs 's own words:
a ciotn niuue ot American cotton onlv is a
class of superior cloth, ot which the sale is
and will always be limited. It is like the sale
of special brands of fine wine there is a sale,
but it can never be the sale of the great con
sumption of the world. The Indian ryot is
so poor that the price of his scanty cotton
garment is of the createst moment to him
Lancashire receives cotton from all countries:
sne can mix American and cmrat, .Brazil or
West Indian, so as to cive the reauisite
amount ot quality ana strength tor the min
imum ot cost. 1 his is an advantage which
will always enable her to sell to the great
mass of consumers, and with which cloth
made from American cotton only never can
In these words the Liverpool merchant
claims for England only superior facilities for
the manufacture of the lower qualities of goods,
in short, superiority in shoddy, no enviable
victory fo a market that recently boasted of
supplying the world's wants with cotton
goods. It is evident that there is a successful
future before southern cotton-factories, and
Memphis projectors have a splendid prospect.

The Commission is Only Another Name
for Delay, and "Compromise, of
Whatever Character, Is Only
Postponement of Adjustment."
Washington Xationnl Republican : There
is no discussing the fact that the halt in the
progress of reform so auspiciously begun is
working great mischief in all parts of the
country. The public mind, which had gradu
ally liecome reconciled to the measures pro
posed, coming up to the advanced standard
of the administration from the different
standpoints of the sections, has unmistakably
fallen back to the old intrenchments of oppo
sition and rejection, and now presents the
same spectacle of hostility and display of bit
terness before exhibited by the several divi
sions of the people. We do not desire to be
unreasonable or captious in our views, for we
are conscious that the 1 resident is exerting
his highest powers of mind and heart in the
patriotic work he has allotted as the first duty
of his administration, but we cannot refrain
from expressing our sorrow that anything
should have occurred to check the popular
enthusiasm with which the announcement of
his policy was greeted all over the land, in
quarters even where no one expected ap
proval. It is certain that the purest motives
have led to the reconnoisanee ot the situation
now determined upon, before proceeding to
the application of remedies, but it is equally
certain that it has disappointed public ex
pectation, and that general depression ha
followed in consequence. The south,
which has but just emerged from
one suffering is fvinL."

we not see this in daily life? Think of the
influence of noble, self-sacnhcing men upon
ourselves. Is there not a constant atonement
going on of the good for the evil? In our
deepest sorrows and troubles to whom shall
we turn for comfort and sympathy but to one
who has suffered similarly ana triumphed
over his sunenngKr1 Ihe dogmatic systems
have been dreams, bad dreams often, night
mares, dreams of violence, bloodshed, wrong
and oppression. The euen of religion is
in the humanities; whatever speaks to us of
these is at heart good and true. We can all
admire the Sistine Madonna, whether we be
lieve in the Virgin or not. So with the Christ
of Titian; that is a revelation; that noble
conception has a truth which no science at
tempts to dispute, no skeptic attempts to re
fute." The conclusion, the lecturer said, in regard
to the talk about beginning religious reform
within, that many noble attempts to that end
have been made and are making, but they
are hopeless. You cannot put new wine into
old bottles, or new spirit into old symbols.
As to the future, he added: "We look for
ward to a time when justice and wisdom shall
guide in government, when the progress of
science shall be unchecked, when the influ
ence of art shall le universal, when peace
and good will shall obtain between man and
man. But we do not expect that this is to be
accomplished in an instant hrough a God;
we are all to accomplish this, -we are all sol
diers in tnis .Messianic cause, tins is our spur
to the action we need, and this the cause to
which our ideal stimulates us. Thus, as I
said at the beginning of this course of lec
tures, our obiect is peace and ultimate recon
ciliation our hone."

arried the country by a larger vote than any
other man could commanded. But ' there

not surprising that the sun of this incorrupt
ible patriot should be eclipsed by a man who
holds the Pre.-idency by fraud. Henry Clay
said he "had rather be right that President,"
and Tilden, in his retirement, is more to be
envidd than the pretender occupying bis

strange fact of American cotton manufac

once England's best customer for manufac

by the official returns of the board of trade.

change as a mere temporary matter, ex pec t

ever, are learning better. Ihe question is
put, "How can an American article sell in

"Oath" on Hayes and His Cabinet.
Blaine and Tilden are open to criticism be
cause they had to make their money as they
climbed the mount. Hayes had to pay no
heed to his journey, and took' neither scrip
nor statt, and hence his private character was
unassailable. S. S. Cox said to me: " I knew
him when he came to Cincinnati, and he
hadn't a client. We thought he lacked force
until they elected him city solicitor, and then,
with a duty devolving on him, he was per
fectly ready and proved efficient." It is a
comforting assurance that, with diffusing.
easy competence in this country, the large
number ot unencumbered estates and sub
stantial investments, we shall be ready in
another generation with a multitude of men
of Hayes's type. Hayes's cabinet is made up
with as much specific and treneral electric
talent as any man can match. Put a better
row of names together! He chose John
Sherman for the place next in executive func
tion to his senatorial place, the nuance com
mittee, and Sherman is the most successful
politician Ohio ever had not brilliant like
Chase, nor ready like Schenck, but prudent,
vigilant and industrious, with fine connec
tions, and without any other stigma than
want of warmth. Charles Woolley, who was
the great attorney for the Ohio distillers, told
me before the election that John Sherman's
capacity and character were above his general
reputation. On the financial issue, as defined
by Sherman, Hayes became governor and
President. Having put him in the treasury
department, the rest of the cabinet was easily
selected. Schurz's main elements are indus
try and ambition, and, of course, honesty.
He did not leave a better German behind him
in Germany. Chastened by some defeat, but
full of resolute perseverance, Schurz was
placed in the great hodge-podge called the
interior, as if with the request, N jw go to

Baltimore Sun : It has never leen denied
that the Mormon system is founded on gross

which, as has been observed, will emasculate

many other crimes against the prosperity and
happiness of mankind. While slavery and
Mormonism have been pronounced by fashion
able philanthropists "twin barbarisms," it
has been found practicable to put down the
one at the expense of a million of lives, while
it has taken twenty years to bring one Mor
mon Thug to his just deserts. While States
of the south are garrisoned by troops which
uphold policies of government that have no
iounuation upon the will of the people, the
great and growing Territory of Utah is al
lowed to be the held, undisturbed, of a sys
tem that disgraces the nation and humanity,
and that would not be permitted by any other
civilized government in the world to exist for
an hour. In reading the accounts of the
Mountain Meadows massacre, comparing it
with the atrocities of the communists in Paris,
it would be hard to decide whether atheistical
or religious fanaticism is the worse enemy of
standing ready to welcome his overtures with
demonstrations of joy and gratitude, now
sinks under a weight ol apprehension doubly
distressing in that it proceeds from a blow to
confidence slow in growth, and hardly ma
tured when struck down. The best and truest
friends of the administration from that sec
tion confess utter dejection, and promise
themselves nothing for the future, so far as
at present thscernible. while the reluctant re
cruits in the north are fast cancelhitr com
mitment to a policy they hate, and now be
lieve doomed. Such is the state of public
feeling to-day, but it may be modified bv the
early withdrawal of the troops from South
Carolina. In any view, however, the situa
tion is unfortunate because any future ad
vance will be the more vigorously contested.
that the movement has lost momentum and
prestige, and the more cautiously and indif
ferently received, that it is regarded with dis
trust. Opposition will supersede acquiescence
on the one side, and apathy Like the place of
interest on the other. The facta and equities
of the case are already offensively
known to the whole pec pie, and noth
ing can be gained by a further investi

representing the authority to be influenced by
its conclusions, will be more satisfactory to
that authority than impressions gathered from
other sources. But the developments will
have no greater force with the public than
those now familiar knowledge. Whatever
shall be the result, the same dissatisfaction
will exist, and any action based upon the re
port which shall be made will meet with the
same condemnation by one side or the other.
11 the commission is authorized to effect a
compromise, as is generally supposed it will
be, not one step will be gained toward the
final pacification of the country. Compro
mise, of whatever character, is only postpone
ment a present accommodation of a matter
requiring future adjustment. So that if a
compromise is to be made in the premises we
shall remain in statu quo during tie next four
years, experiencing a " blank olympiad in
deed, to be followed by a renewal of the con
flict when the term expires. It is sincerely to
be hoped that no such scheme is in contem
plation, but, if not, of what service will be
the commission? The whole cause
of the diversion from the cou.-se
originally described is, in our
opinion, the belligerent attitude assumed by
Packard, purposely taken to frustr.ito hf de
signs of the administration, by bringing on
such a condition of war as would insure the
presence of Federal troops. And if such be
the fact, the troops should be at once with

to all that they will return upon the first at

of it. There is no other course which will

Moncure Conway's London Letter in the
Cincinnati Commercial : Whatever may have
been the toleration of the Jews in the past,
it is certain that they are now admitting a
degree of freedom in handling their own
records which promises important results.
Two of their most learned men and they
have more of such in proportion to their num
bers than any race in the world are now
engaged in explaining a large part of the bible-
as mythology. These two are Dr. Stein-
thal and Dr. Goldz;her. Steinthal's essnys
on Prometheus and Samson fairly founded
the new study of the Hebrew mythology,
(which Renan said does not exist Les Semi
ten n'ont jamais en de mythobxjie). Steinthal
identifies Samson as a sungod, and Delilah
as a moon goddess. Goldziher, a young
Israelite, trained by the treat Arab-
lst, Dr. Heischer, now brings for
ward his long expected work, wluch
Russell Martineau has translated with
his usual fidelity, and the Longmans pub
lished. It is entitled: V Mythology Among
the Hebrews, and Its Historical Develop
ment. By Ignaz Gold.iher, Ph. D , member
of the Hungarian academy of sciences.
Translatod from the German, with additions
by the author, by Russell Martineau, M. A.,
of the British museum.". Russell Martineau
(son ot Rev. James Martineau) is one of the
best Hebraists in England, as bis translation
of Ewald's History of Israel proved. He
has included in this volume Steinthal's es
says alluded to. The impression which this
book has already made here is profound. It
is a fact that the Orientals have for centu
ries treated many of the bible stories as
solar myths. Thus Saadi writes, as if it
were a familiar interpretation: "Then Jonah
entered the whale's belly the sun set."
Goldziber, evidently not acquainted with
baadi s sentence, has worked to the same con
clusion by way of philology. A good many
doubtful biblical reputations are cleared up
by these interpretations. Abraham and
Iaaac mean philologically the rainy or noc
turnal sky, and the "laughing" (Isaac) sun;
and the story of the projected sacrifice of
one by the other is 6imply the night at
tempt of a dismal morning to obscure the
sun. jepniiiau means the opening
day; his daughter is the Dawn; consequent
ly the advancing Day necessarily sacrifices
the virginal rosy Dawn, and that is all there
is in the terrible stories of Jephtha-genia or
Iphigenia. Cain killing Abel is the night
slaying the day. Jacob and Esau at birth
represent night clinging to the heel of day
(Jacob means "follower,") and at sunset
cheats him of his birthright perhaps by
getting up as gorgeous an evening a was
the purple dawn; Goldziher having shown
Ui.it "hairy" (Esau) is everywhere a so1..;;
epithet sums up fhe story with "Night fol
lows close upon Day, driving him from his
place." Rachael weeping for her children is
tbe Hebrew !Niobe. The solar Mythology as
applied to the Olympian deities has had the
admitted advantage of relieving the Greeks
of the charge of worshiping gods and god
desses whose behavior would take them to
Newgate, if they were in London; their
amours were those of sunshine and flower,
nnd their assassinations only eclipses and
storms; but it remains to be seen how Jews
and christians will entertain this scheme for
similarly vindicating the characters of scrip
ture worthies at a cost of their reality.

He observed that the place had a dilapidated

The New York World, Monday: Dr. Felix
Adler lectured yesterday on "Dreams and
Ideals." He spoke as follows: "There are
some who maintain that nothing is valuable
that is not tangible to the senses or soluble
by reason. If that alone is good which we
can prove to be real, life would be bare in
deed. On the other hand, sentimentalists
urge Uiat the testimony of inward experience
is as valuable as' any test of science." There
is no question as to the reality of the relig
ious need in 'mm, but it is not admissible to
use this in order to establish the validity of
any particular creed, l ou may say you are
happy in your religion; well, so is the Mo
hammedan, so is the freethinker, so are the
believers in numerous and vastly different
creeds. The fables of Uie deafhbed repent
ance of infidels are too threadbare to
require serious consideration. There
is a marked difference between the
truths of science and the truths of religion,
Uie truths of the heart and the truths of the
mind for we concede that there is truth in
religion." The lecturer here went on to
speak of the i Larms of poetry and the beauti
fying effects of illusion in life. He said: "Il

Nasnville correspondence of the Chicago
Tribune: Outside of the fact that the great
army of scoffers at so-called Spiritualism may
believe that a man who gives credence to its
peculiar doctrines was a lunatic ere he be
came a convert, I don't remember ever hear
ing of any Spiritualist in Tennessee going
stark mad upon the subject, and the State
holds probably some fifteen hundred believers,
who belong to all elapses and degrees, and in
cludes both educated and uneducated disci
ples. Before the war a christian minister
went over to Spiritualism, and a large num
ber of people were kind enough to remark
that he had been laboring under temporary
aberration of mind, or he never could have
taken so roundabout a chute toward heaven.
He still maintained an equilibrium of mind,
and was as eloquent and as powerful upon
ms new sumeci as wnen ne spoke Irom velvet-
trimmed pulpits, in true orthodox st-le, to
cuuivateu ana nigniy rehnea audiences.
While the Spiritualists of Tennessee may, as
in other places, have fallen in the estima
tion of their more orthodox brethren, it ia
but justice to say that the believers represent
a ciass ot respectable and thrifty citizens,
though this sort of religion, or fanaticism as
many would term it, has at divers times af
forded diversion, anil even been a source of
revenue, to persons imitating the seances of
tne true believers, and imposing upon the
creuunty oi tneir teliow-men. It is told that
there is a colony of Spiritualists who have
settled down among the mountain fiistnesses
of Tennessee, and who claim to have been
directed thither by the spirit of a dead hunter.
who was wont to tread his way through the
mazes ana labyrinths of the deep gulches
mat line tne mountain sides, iierc, v.
on his hunt after bear? and other wild am
inals, he so he. coimumcated through the
medium had discovered in a certain spot,
and at the bottom of a gulch, an inexhausti
ble gold mine. It was stated to the credulous
believers that if they dug down to the depth
of two hundred feet they would strike the
rich vein, and the lortune of every individual
engagea in tne search would be assured.
This little colony lived frugally, dwelling in
litUe comfortless log huts. and. when thev
could spare the time from the delving after
tne precious metals, they raised small
patches ot potatoes and corn, which, with
the wild meat brought down with, the rifle,
furnished them with a livelihood. Here,
isolated from all the rest of Uie busy world,
struggling for a my thical store of gold, the
deluded beings have for years labored, and
grown old and gray in the service, and many
have sunk down to Uie grave without even
getting a sight of the goal of their hopes.
The hard flint and tough marble that dulled
the edges of their instuments seemed almost
beds of iron, yet they never yielded, only
making more strenuous efforts, and the delv
ing down into the promising bowels of the
earth was carried on in the face of almost
insurmountable difficulties. The faith still
lingers, and, were any one to in
form the workers that they were laboring
under a delusion, he would doubtless be
laughed at for his exceeding stupidity in dis
crediting the statements

away with his saw-horse on his shoulder and

right to the security of their persons and

ever tumbled down the gangway of a Pacific
mail steamer. A great deal of elaborate
nonsense is talked about the iniquity that is
presumed to result from Uie existence of Uie
six companies, but with such horrible acta of
deliberate brutality cons'antly occurring,
what blame can attach to the Chinese for
banding together in self-defense? It is the
instinct of self-preservation. No one need
be surprised, and no honest man can fail to
rejoice hereafter when these over
patient people are goaded into taking
iieir own part. Now and then the
terce of American example peeps out
even amid the -.-ace of Jobs. At Gold Hill,
some months ago, a miner was amusing him
self by robbing a Chinaman of his mule. The
latter havinsr the impudence to resist this
cheerful proceeding, the miner felt for his re
volver. The Chinaman, however, produced
a similar weapon and incontinently shot his
despoiler dead. Of course, there was a vin
dictive rush toward John made by the aston
ished spectators. Just then the partner of
the dead man advanced and waved the crowd
back. "It was a fair fight, bovs. Let the
Chinee go!" he said sternly, adding with an
admiring emphasis, Ihe tact is these Mon
golians is improvin'." May they continue to
improve until such outrages as the one at
Chico become impossible, says the Mail.

The blindest chance that ever cursed a State.

Uplifting, led through seas of human blood.
To work itiow long?) the dark behests of Kate!
Some shallow c;isul.sts will tids creature great:
et. truly, never since the old-world Hood
Eh'ied down the sliaie where rising Ararat stood,
Have vice and cunning found a worthier mate.
Conslsent only In malign self-love.
In dogged hate of ail things brave and Tree,
His creed brute-power himself his Deity!
Faith groans beneath him, heaven Is sick aboe

Queer people those Frenchmen. A lady,
talking in Paris along the Hue du Chateau
d'Kau. came upon her husband, who had an
other lady linked to his arm. The man, well
knowing the temper of his wife, took to his
heels, leaving the two ladies to settle the af
fair as they might think best. The two
talked, and then they fell to blows, the result
being that the wife was knocked down by the
other one. Subsequently she made her way
to the police station to enter a complaint, but
she found her victorious adversary already in
custody. In due time all the parties appeared
in court. The victor, as the attacked party,
wa3 acquitted, it being pronounced no oteno
for a lady merely to take the arm of a married
man. The wife was acquitted lecause she
was already severely punu-hed. The husliand
was lectured severely by the judge, and the
crowd of spectators came near lynching him,
not for walking abroad with a pn Uy girl, but
for having run away from his friehd.
