MOI THEKS PACIFIC BAILBOAU.
At the next session of congress the friends
of this (treat enterprise will make the last
great effort to secure an appropriation.
What the south asks i simply an
act of justice. Millions were appropri
ated for the Union and Pacific road,
and the south, taxed for the benefit of this
roal, insists that she be treated with respect
and justice. If the friends of this great en
terprise will unite, we believe they will suc
ceed. As a rule, we are opposed to subsidies,
but a grand enterprise of the magnitude of
the Southern Facific, one which would give
employment to thousands upon thousands of
torn, put in circulation millions of money and
open up a highway through a very paradise
of country, and furnish cheap homes to a
million cf idle mechanics and workmen,
we can see no good reason why the govern
ment cannot lend the enterprise a hand upon
honorable terms when not jeopardizing the
treasury one mill in so doing. Men
oppose the Southern Pacific road only from
a want of a careful investigation of the
UIIAXTITO ItETIIK CANDIDATE.
It is evident that U. S. Grant will be the
Republican candidate for the Presidency in
1S30. He is unquestionably laying pipe with
the view of securing the nomination. Of
course Blaine and Conkling are opposed to
bis aspirations, knowing, as they do, that if
Grant should be again elected, be will be
President for life, for if be can be elected a
third time, hemay also be elected a fourth
and a fifth time, and the door closed against
every other leading Republican, If an ex
President should aspire to a third term, be
would be as anxious to serve as President for
life. There is no constitutional obstacle in
the way, only a custom founded on Wash
ington's voluntary example. - If a man can be
elected to the Presidency as often as his am
bition dictate?, hereafter, so soon as a man
reaches the Presidency be will prostitute bis
whole administration in covert electioneering
for bis own benefit, instead of administering
the government for the advantage of the
country. It will cot do to permit even
the bope of third terms. It is the hope, not
the actual re-election, which causes all the
evil which Mr. Clay and so many others have
deprecated, namely, the diversion of the
President's mind from public to selfish aims.
Let it once be supposed by an incumbent of
that office that he may be perpetually re
elected, and our system will be infinitely worse
than the election of a President foriife. If
Le were elected for life he would have no
temptation to pervert his cflice and employ
its patronage to control the composition and
influence the action of party onventions;
whereas if a President is regarded as perpet
ually eligible, he will always ba an incessant
political intriguer. For the good of the
country General Grant's hope cf a third
term ought to be promptly and effectually
extinguished, notwithstanding the convic
tion of most men that they are delusive.
The best of all ways to accomplish this
particular object is by laying the ax at the
root of the tree and abolishing re-eligibility
altogether by an amendment of the constitu
tion extending the Presidential term to six
yea's and forbidding the re-election of a
President in office. The next session of con
gress is the m Out favorable time we are likeip
to have for tarrying thio needed reform
through congress and submitting it to the
States for ratification. It can never succeed
in the first term of a President, because he
would resist it with his patronage and in
fluence. A President not a candidate for re
election, has no motive to oppose it,
and such a selfish innovation can never
be met bo successfully as when the pur
pose is yet uoavowed and shrinks fiotn the
bazud of exposure and public condemnation.
I'KAIU AND 1XTIT1IDATIOX.
The Republicans are trying to blacken the
fair victories of the Democracy in South
Carolina and Louisiana by the old cry of
fraud and intimidation. Both Hampton and
Nicholls have promised a rigid investigation
and to punish the guilty, should tho charges
of the Republicans be proven true. Intimi
dation is a somewhat vatjue offense, and de
pends a good deal cn the character of the in
timidated maD. Two years ago Senator Mor
ton brought out what he flattered himself
was an uncommonly fine case of intimidation
iu Mississippi. A white Republican testified
that, being a candidate for office, the Demo
crats marched through the town where he
lived and past bis Louse by torchlight, bear
ing a coffin marked with bis name in illu
minated letter, and groaning and threaten
ing as they passed bis door. Afterward the
coffin, conspicuously labelled, was set up
against his house, where he found it the next
morning. The ttory produced a profound
impression upon all who listened, until Sena
tor Kernan, seeing that the witness was a
lurly man, who looked as though he could
t.ike care of himself, 6ud('enly asked him:
'And were you really intimidated?" The
man grinned, and said frankly: "No; not a
bit. I knew I was not going to be hurt."
The intimidation charged upon Demociats
in South Carolina and Louisiana amounts to
j'jjt such intimidation as the witness de
scribes in Mississippi. If the south resoits
to unfair measures to carry elections it is all
right for Republicans at the north to criticise
and appeal to public opinion, but they should
be sure of the facts and not put reliances for
such purposes on discredited men. There
may occasionally be violence in the south at
elections, as there always has been, and al
ways will be, but the south knows nothing of
the violence and frauds which have been ex
posed in New York and Philadelphia. We
i.re familiar with southern sentiment, and we
1 now that there is no desire or necessity for
iiaud. Nothing will induce the southern
j ople to again permit the establishment of
tho thieving governments they have over
thrown. But we do cot believe, and have
never seen any reason to even suspect, that
the majority of the black voters want to re
establish governments which gave them no
protection and almost sacked the country
over which they ruled. It is unhappjj tha j
f.'ct that tb adventurers who are still
trjirtr to induce the negro '3 vote to
re-estabhi-h cjrpetbag governments call
tUftiuoelvss Republicans, and have
some right to do so. It is not
however, because they are Republican?, but
tecaue they are thieves, that the people of
the south wculd rather die than submit to
their rule again. It the decent Republicans
cf the north repudiate such allies, and cease
to support, encourage or recognizs them, and
tha south will divide soon enough, and
t'a .-ugh it may not build up a Republican
party, it will produce a party qu.te as likely
to be in alliance with decent northern Re
publicans in congress as with the Democrats.
NoTuing but the means of renewed carpet
bagism has kept the south solid, and nothing
but the apparent alliance between the carpet
baggers and the Republicans, who really de
spise them, has made it impossible that one
of the two parties into which the southern
people, it left alone, would ere this have di
vided, shall be called Republican.
1KOM MEMPHIS TO TUB POLE.
An Arctic expedition, starting on the Mis
sissippi river, would appear a strange thing,
but the strangeness would be only in appear
ance. We copied a paragraph into the Ap
peal, a few days ago, announcing the de
parture of a party, forming an Arctic cxpe
dition, from Indianapolis. Their route was
by the Red River of the North. Parsing down
the Ohio to Cairo, they could, then ascend
the Mississippi, going northward all the way
to St. Taul. There they would take the rail
road to Duluth, leaving it on reaching
the junction of the Pacific railroad on the
banks of the St. Louis river for the road
the gold miners take when going to the
Black Hills. On this railroad they would
cross the Mississippi at Brainard, where that
stream has shrunk to a very modest breadth,
and passing over the almost ktenantless
plains, reach the Red River of the North
Embarked on this tortuous river, they would
proceed north, as they had done ia ascend
ing the Mississippi, but they would now be
going down stream a fact the writer, who
once pursued this route, found difficult to
realize, so thoroughly bad his residence
on the banks of the Mississippi
made up-stream and north synonymous.
The party would thus, passing Pem
bina, the last village in the United
States, reach the flourishing town of Winne
peg, in Manitoba, at the mouth of the Asin
neboin river. Forty miles further is the
mouth of the Red river and the fine lake of
Wianepeg, from the northern extremity of
which the Nelson river runs to Hudson '0 bay,
at Fort York, giving access to the Arctic
ocean. At Fort York the party that last
summer took the route we describe put their
boats together in sections, intending to push
up to eighty degrees and there await
the breaking up of the ice next year
to commence exploration and discovery.
It will be seen by this explanation, that it is
quite possible for an expedition to the Arctic
ocean to start from Memphis, and when one
does so, as the members of it sit
around tha North Pole smoking their
pipes, they will no doubt occupy a
portion of their leisure in the country
where every degree of longitude can be run
over in a quarter of an hour, in reading the
Memphis Appeal by the electric light not
Edison's but that of the aurora borealis.
All Mllir AT IT AttAI.V.
The Heathen Chinee is a peculiar person
age, and one in whom closer knowledge re
veals unexpected points. There is clear evi
denco that the Chinese were at one time a
progressive and inventive people. At
some period they came to a stand.
They became conservative, and believed
the supremacy of wisdom consisted in
doing just as their ancestors had done
before them. When a whole people,
or a class of people, look backward instead
of forward the stream ceases to flow,
the rush of the current is exchanged for
stagnation, and the river becomes a marsh.
Accordingly the Chinese conservatism has
ended in intellectual inaction, and inventive
genius has subsided into mere imitation. A
gentleman being in Shanghai gave a Chinese
a piece of cloth to be made into a coat, and
also a worn coat as a pattern. Most faithfully
did tho Chinese tailor, who had never seen a
white devil's" coat before, reproduce a true
copy of the pattern given him; so faithfully
as to cut a hole in the new coat and put a
patch in it along the' lap, just where, in the
worn coat, a cigar spark had burned a hole
during the sea voyage and which the ship's
tailor had mended. Such being the present
position of Chinese genius, we have feared
nothing from them but the competition cf
mere rude labor, such a3 occurs in
California with our own highly-developed
faculty for invention, we thought
ourselves safe from Ah Sin,
although he has ways that are cunning, and
tricks that are guile. It appears we under-.
valued him, however; we forgot bis powers
of imitation, and it now turns out that he is
at present checking the demand for Yankee
clocks by making imitations so perfect, and
so cheap, that it is not impossible
but that, at an early day, Chinese
pedlers may be selling their own country
made clocks in Connecticut. Ah Sing is
evidently irrepressible, and the best Yankee
speculation that can be made out of him is
turn his imitiave powers to our own use; to
mi.ke his nimble fingers work for us, and so
prevent them bringing trouble upon us by
working against us. We have tried to des
pise the Heathen Chinee, but without success.
We have tiicd to put bim down, but ha
will not stay down. We must, therefore,
enlist his faculties in our own service,
and so make an advantage of what will,
without tact and management, become a mis
chief. The ekill that can manage a steam
engine can surely manage a Chinaman; be
will not explode like steam, but we must
watch that he does not impede the progress
of the ship by leaking imperceptibly into the
hold. Set Ah Sin to work and he will be
manageable, leave bim to find bis own occu
pation and thee will be trouble.
An Anatomical Wonder.
Chicago Journal: "A novel exhibition in
anatomy was Riven yesterday afternoon to
the students of Rush medical college. At
lour o'clock the large amphitheater lecture
room was filled with fledged and unfledged
dot-tors, and in the arena stood Mr. Charles
Warrea, a man about thirty years of age, of
athletic appearance, and apparently jointed
the same as ordinary mortals. But be soon
showed that he differed from most men in
his make-up, for there was hardly a joint
in his whole ody that he could not
throw .out of place, or at least give that
appearance. He went through with his dis
tortions, much to the amazement as well a3
the amusement of all. He commenced by
giving a circulatory muvement to the scapu
la1, moving either one or both at a time, and
without any apparent motion of the shoul
ders, lie then threw the humerus into the
axillo, disjointed bis elbow, wrist and pha
langes. This was done merely by the con
traction ot the muscles of the arm and not by
pulling of one member by another. In none
of fcis teats was there any such wrench (
- t r ll ,r-. a 1
01 ona joint irum anoiuer. vimouc
touching any part of his body with his
hands, the joints would move out of posi
tion. He forced the femur from the thigh
bone. This he could do while standing on
one or both feet, or while reclining. The
dislocation earned an apparent shortening of
the limb. Another striking feat was the
turning of his feet so that he could touch the
bottoms of them while bis legs were perfectly
straight. Fe? baps the most remakable of all
his powers was the wonderful expansibility of
bis chest. Medical works, upon the strength
of examinations of thousands of men ia the
army and navy, generally give five inches aa
the maximum of expansion. The exhibitor
could expand bis from nine to twelve inches.
Those who did not take much interest in
Lis other performances were wonder-struck
at this. This feat was performed by the re
markable degree of the compressibility cf the
chest, and his power to force hi? heart and
lungs into the ubdominial cavity, and then to
force his vis.era into his chett. The abdo
men whs hardly les9 curious when the viscera
was fotced upward by the diaphragm than
was the inflated chest, for at such times there
seemed to be an entire absence of organs in
that part of the body, and to be no distance
at fl from the front walls ct
the abdomen to the spinal column. This
subject proved a fine study in the anatomy
of the muscles, because he could contract
them so as to show the position of each one
from origin to insertion. He had this power
over the muscles in pairs or separately, and
could make them as distinct as if dissected.
Mr. Warren concluded with an exhibition of
his ability to control his whole body, drawing
himself through lings and performing other
things, much to the amusement of the
students and of the professors if they had
only felt at 'iberty to give way to laughter."
Justice Miller, before the State bar asso
ciation: "When theelection of judges by the
legislatures of the States became the ac
cepted theory of American statesman
ship, the appointment of many other officers
was vested in the same bodies. Here was a
wide field for combinations, for exchanges of
votes and influence. This system has given
rise to the expressive term 'log-rolling,' as
applicable to that and to other forms of leg
islative action. It comes from the customs
of the early settlers in clearing the trees
from the soil which they intended to culti
vate. When the trees were all felled and
cut into logs from ten to twenty feet long,
they were gathered into large piles and
burned up to g;t them cut of the way. This
piling business required more foroe than was
at the command of one farmer, and bo it be
came the custom, as it did in house-raising,
corn-huBking, and other similar matters, that
when the settler was ready for the perform
ance, his neighbors came, and putting their
Joint forces togethor, the logs were soon
piled ready for the fire. He in turn helped
each neighbor when needed, and so these
neighborhood meetings came to be called
'log-rollings. It is aptly expressive of the
combination of forces in a legislative body,
by which one member, or set of members,
who have a particular olject to accomplish,
secures the aid of others, indifferent in that
matter, by promising to assist in matters in
which the others are interested. This log
rolling system found a fruitful theater of op
eration in teginlative appointments to office,
and was soon transferred to other sul j rets
of legislation, in which members, or their
constituents, had local Qr individual interests,
often at variance with the genera! welfare."
Here is an Italian romance that would
serve as a plot for a French play: The only
son of a noble house fell in love with the
only daughter of another 'noble house. The
lovers were handsome, rich and young, and
they were very fond of each other. W hen
the young count asked the hand of the girl
he loved her father refueed point blank, with
out giving any reason. He was so firm, how
ever, that the young lover saw that it was
useless to insist. Every one condemned the
tyranny ot the girl's father, and the lovers
resolved to marry without his consent, trust
ing that he would speedly forgive and forget
their d Bobedience, A day was fixed upon,
and both repaired to the mayor to have their
union made legal. It was there the crash
came, for the bridegroom learned that his
papers were not correct. His name was not
registered. His father had omitted that
form. Mad with doubt and apprehension,
he flew to his father and demanded the rea
son of this omission. What passed between
the father and son none may ever know, but
as soon as the young man left his father's
presence he blew out bis brains. He was r.ot
the legitimate eon of the count. The couut,
in atonement of his youthful fault, had
brought up his illegitimate eon as his beir,
and had never had the courage to confess the
truth to him. This was the reason of the
girl's father's objections to the marriage. He
knew the secret. The boy's mother was a
woman of the lower orders. He would not
survive the knowledge of his shame. The
girl is mad with grief, and it is feared that
she also will fit an end to her days. "I
cannot live without him," she cries in her
apony; "let me go to bim, let me go to

vastly improved their condition. She remem
bers when a woman wa3 thought competent
to teach only the small children in the sum
mer schools, when her pay for such teaching
was a dollar a week, and she was expected to
board around. Now women are professors in
colleges, with good salaries. In four States
they vote on all school matters. Teaching,
sewing and keeping house were
the only occupations regarded as
suitable for women. Now tho cen
sus records eeventy-one occupations that
are open to women. No woman was a public
speaker out of the Quaker church. Now, all
platforms are free tombem. the lyceum
offers to the woman lecturer the same open
field that it does to a man. The pulpit and
the bar are both occupied by women. The
woman physician did not exist. Now they
have a successful practice in every large city
and many of the smaller towns. There was
not a college in the world that admitted
women. Now there are not only distinctive
ly colleges for women, but a large
number that welcome women to all
their advantages. It is not many years since
a married woman could own nothing that she
earned;-could not make a will of anything
sue possessed; coulu not sue or be euccl;
could not carry on business; bad no lawful
right to her children, and could not bo their
guardian; nor;had she the right to her own
person. Now, in most of the States, all this
is changed or very much mcdified.
Probable Fate of the Kurderons Assail
ant of the lins of Mpaln.
Pall Mall Gazette: "It is generally ex
pected at Madrid that if Moncasi is sen
tenced to death the king will exercise his
prerogative of pardon; though, as a matter
of fact, capital punishment is by no means
unusual in Spain, nearly fifty persons having
been executed since the restoration of 1875.
The mode of execution is a somewhat bar
barous one, as the condemned man is placed
upon a chair in a sitting position and then
strangled. The execution takes plac in
public, and after it is over the body
is placed upon a scaffold and exposed
to view several hours, witii monks
in the somber garb of penitents surroundiug
it, and reciting the prayers for the dead.
The last execution which took place at Mad
rid revolted popular feeling, aud the press
unanimously protested against the scandal of
tbeae public exhibitions. Tho public curi
osity is stimulated by the maintenance of a
tradition which adds to the horror of the
punishment. Two days before the execution
takes place, the condemned man is taken into
the chapel of the prison, and handed over to
the clergy, who for forty-eight hours exhort
bim to repentance and repeat the masses for
the repose of his soul, so that, when the
time arrives for bim to march to the pati
bulo, he bus already had a foretaste of
Itiches or the Holy See.
A Paris paper denies the stories of the pov
erty of the boiy see. Its expenses, the writer
says, are from one million two hundred thou
sand to one million four hundred thousand
dollars a year, and if, with nine hundred
bishops and two hundred thousand priests,
this amount of money cannot be raised, the
church must be in a poor way. The late pope,
it is said, received from twelve to sixteen
million dollars, a sum which could not alto
gether have disappeared before or at bis
death. Tho expenses cf the Vatican have
also been reduced, and are etill f urther de
creased by the death of officers holding sine
cures and pensioners whose places on the pon
tifical pay-roll are not filled. Pope Leo, to
relieve the suffering among the poor ot Italy,
especially at Florence and Rome, thinks ot
holding a great sale of articles presented to
his predecessor, many of which are of great
intrinsic value, but will decay or remaiu in
useless seclusion in the treasuries of the
A Cartons Kind of Swindle. "
New Haven Palladium: "A well-dressed
and well-appearing man asked a State street
book-keeper Thursday for small bills for a
five. After the book-keeper had given him
the bills be changed his mind and .wanted a
five-dollar bill for email bills, keeping the
change first given him in his hand. He then
changed his mind again and wanted a ten
dollar bill i'cr two fives, and in that way
mixed the book-keeper up so that he finally
best him out of five dollars. The same mode
of swindling, and very likely by the same
swindler, happened at the Hurlbut bank at
Winsted, where a fellow, giving his name as
F. E. Jackson, asked for a hundred-dollar bill
for small bills. He was given a new bill,
but wanted an old one, as be wished to mail
it, he said. He was accommodated with an
old bill and left, forgetting to return the new
one, and tho fraud was not discovered for
some time. The trick lies in confusing by
repeated requests and exclange9 of money.
This game was succefuMy tried on one cf
the bank officers in Windham county, a few
week since, and but for the quick wit of an
officer who was at once put on the fellow's
track the bank would have been out fifty dol
lars or more. The ra-cal was caught and
gave over the money."

Albany Law Journal: "Mrs. Lockwood,

bia, whom Judge Magruder, of the seventh
judicial circuit of Maryland, characterized as
a wandering woman and forbade to speak,
not only in his court but in bis c.ourthouse,

test the question of her right to practice in
the Maryland courts. The Federal courts in
Maryland, it h said, permit her to practice
before them, but it is doubtful if the State
courts will be found as liberal."
