The Republican party is responsible for all the woes that have been brought upon the colored people, who have beea deluded into tho belief that it' they can get to Kansas they will be provided for by the Republican party of that extret. e Radical State. While a lawyer was piling on the agony in de picting the wronjjs of his client, the client suddenly burst into tears and said he never knew before how badiy ha had been treated, and wanted to taku immediate revenge on his persecutor. Tha negroes of the south are in a better condition than the poor whites of the 'north. Toey would be perfectly con tented, happy and prosperous, but they bear so much about their wrongs and outrages, told by Radical newspapers and speakers, that they burst into tears at the enormity ot their treatment which they never knew be fore, and frantically rush to the embrace of those who whine over their wrongs. But they will soon discover their mistake. They will find that they have left their best friends and a hospitable climate for a region where tli9 hearts of tha people are as cold as the climate. Thousands of colored people are strolling along the river and the railroads from New Orleans to the State of Kansas. They are without money or clothing. Their sufferings are great. All this has been brought upon them by the false teachings oi the Republican party. The Chicago Conserv ator, an organ of the colored Republicans, in commenting on the Kansas fever raging among the blacks of Louisiana and Missis sippi, says: Tha northern Republican elves the colored man nothing mure than he ts coinpt-lled to give. Look at their inercantll.-. atlalrs. If the broad, generous, hu mane principles wrre heartfelt and sincere, the Re publicans mould endeavor to aid the negro private er, wheie greed tor gtiinand glory refuses ntm assist ance publicly. But, no; the ne?ro am laborer is far mun ostracised b the red Republican; than by the most bitter of the southern iiemocrats. Noitli ern Republicans close their factories In the face of the black man, nierelimits refuse to hire him, me chanic refuse to lubor with hhn. and uommon la borers will ctrlke If he dare Intrude. The south erner gives the iieuro a place to oik wherever his ability lltt hliu to seive. Factories, farms, foundries and stores are frequently managed by colored men. The southern man holds that ImIi.t 1 . the sphere ol the negro, and will help him fill It; hut the noith erner will feed htm fat upon principle but allow him to starve to death In practice. Most of the colored poople who have been deluded into this folly ara worthless vaga bonds, and the south losses nothing by their emigration, and the people of Kansas will receive a worthless accession to their popula tion. But the southern people would, if they could, undeceive the poor, deluded creatures, solely" f.jr t'.u juroso of saviDg them from the guti-.-rifig they are bricgiui; upon them selves. The sou';h will profit by ge.Uiug rid of a shifllts, mischievous, lezy set of vaga bonds, who live by huuting, stealing and fishing, and in the new accession the people of Kansas will see who ruled the south when the whites Wiro disfranchised. MOATOH IHlIAn . HAUKltt. Merit is always modest and retiring. A newly-elected member to the United States sena e seldom makes a speech during his 1 first Bosion. However great his abiliti s, J and however much he may desire to partici- f pate in debate, it is considered indelicate for I a new senator to thrust himself lorward to the exclusion of cider members. Senator Harris, of this State, has scrupulously ob- served that modesty which is aiways found in true merit. During the first session after his election, his precarious health, and his regard for the customs which the ablest men of the senate always observed on their first appear ance iu the senate, Senator Harris did not make himself conspicuous. This did not suit thoughtless men, who seem to have expected that our senator would have commenced a quarrel without provocation, and go march ing around the senate-chamber brandishing a shil'.alah over his head and dragging bin coat on the floor, daring some Republican to tread on its tail. If Senator Harris has been silent, he has not been unobs'eivant. He knew how to bide his time, just as he did a few years agn, when he was traduced, aiis repiesented, nad misunderstood. Ha has learned the groat lesson of knowing how to wait, and, as a candidate for senator aud senator-elect, he did not have long to wait, for he was triumphantly elected; and as a senator in congress, having served his proba tion an a new member, he has become a conspicuous leader in the body where his talents are recognized and appreciated. Our senator has already introduced several important bills. In speaking of one of them, the WaehingLon Post says: The bill of Senator Harris, to provide a ship for the disinfection or vessels arriving at the mouth or the Mississippi, from any port where the yellow-lever prevails. oiiKht to pss. This proposition, heretofore explained iu lent thin the iW, U founded on Hie well tstabllsiied theory that a nenie ot teuiperHture as low as the freezing point will effectually destroy the germs of yellow-lever.

The refrigerating ship Is to go alongside the Infected cratt and, In a few minutes, ireize out the lever genus, thus thor oughi umliireetliu her. It promises great iesul;s from a comparatively small outlay. The highest medical tiuluorliles. Including some of the most dis tinguished expeits in jellmv-iever, have thoroughly Investigated 1'rof. ti.imgfe's plan, and earnestly recommend Us adoption. The only discovery of much value thus far made as to the pre ventloa or cure of this disease Is flint It cannot live in a freezing tenii endure; that tlie ficeztiig point not only .-htc't- it during the continuance oi the cold, but destroys It, so that on the return of heat It dues l ot revive. Cold weather has always killed it In ihe 1'iilted Mat! s, and Impoila'lon only has revived ll. We think It of Kreut Importance that science should seize and use this fact, and that Is what Senator llanls's bill proposes. Senator Harris has ulready ma le a reputa tion in the senate for judgment, prudence and discretion, iu couricil and for ability and sound practical sense, and will no uoubt oc cupy a prominent and influential position as a southern leader. The St. Louis Globe Democrat is sighing itself to tleiith over the melancholy fuct that "Harris, a violent aud loud-mouthed rebel," is to become a promi nent figure in tho United States senate. In defending Senator II irris from the asper sions of the Globe Democrat, the ZrXairy County bun, edited by our old friend Dr. 1 Barry, says: "Aa for Isham U. Harris, Ten nessee s f ivotilo sou, tho man above re proacn, fuen s huts as tno a'jovo will never ruffle the currvM of his hie. lshitni G. Uac ris was letitit s.-eu a nyiH;rea governor when tho war brce cut, and a man more respected and btloved ly his eople never filled the gubernatorial chair of the Slate. Isham G. . - . . - Harris is the roal of honor und unimpeach able integrity. If some of our State officials of the 'trooly loil' fctrip.-, immediately after tho war, poeaed but tho billionth part of 1 .ham G. Harris's honesty and truth, our people would bo in a bolter condition to-day. Iustcad of being the target for abu&ft and slander that she is to-day, on account of the so-called State debt, tee noble volunteer State would staud pre-eminent anions the sisterhood of States for prosperity. The 'loud-mouthed rebel,' when there was dang er of the capture of Nashville, and of the entrance of boldierj largely composed of men orthe very worst class, took possession of the assets of the Back of Tecuessee.including the school fund of tu.; State, and carried and de posited all in a place of safety. He guarded them vigilautiy during the wav, and at the close he came forward and surrendered his charge, which he Lai faithfully protected, to the then State gevtrnment, only for the tame assets to disappear iu a short time, and go to fi:l the greedy maw of some indi vidual or individuals. The same true, hon est man, this pure, upright statesman, must now submit to abuse aud vituperation from things in human shape, who are not fit to lick the dust from off l is shoes. It is a great crimo in the estimation of the Globe-Democrat man for the people of the south to honor thpinselves by sending their best public mm to the senate of the United States." Thomas Coutuke, one of the greatest painte s of our time, ha3 passed away from the scene of his stortujt triumphs, while as yet his eye was uodimmed and his natural force not abated. "He vrr W" r?ys the New York Trihune, ''in 1315 at Senlis, a small town about twen!y-Eve miles from Paris. He died at the age of sixty-four, and loaves behind hiia no peer. He is the last of the race of great painters who have made this century long to bo remembered, and France must long lie fallow before such another crop of armed men can spring from her soil." "Is IT sint;iu or is it pas I hear?" This very suggestive question by a witty son of tho Emerald Isle occurred to us as we read '"this few lines" from tho Cincinnati h'n quirer: "The 'assault' which the Green- backers are making is an assault upon the ecthroned money power. It is an assault in which the Greenbackers as a separate force in politics are entirely helpless. It is an as sault begun by the Democrats party, the party of the people, upon currency questions and upon all questions." Mr. Smalley, the London correspondent of the New York Tribune, says that "Lord Beaconsfleld 'u beloved by his sovereign, whose acts he supports on the simple ground that they are acts of the oovereign. If Mr, Gladstone had lowered himself to do like wise, he too might have basked in the sun shine of queenly smiles, and need never have lacked an invitation to a royal wedding." Oxly three of the European powers beside Russia and Turkey will take put in the occu pation of Rumelia. Germany and France re fuse to burden themselves with tha mainten ane.e of a military force lo keep the peace be tweeu the Bulgarians and Turks, and the army of occupation will therefore consist only of EnL'lisb. Auatrians, Italiaus, Turks and Russians. "The exercise of Federal power," says the New York Tribune, "has become necessary to preserve among the people a respect and love for free institutions." "Power" and "Free Institutions" tcver did and never will jee, Mr. Tribune. Try aaain. A correspondent of tun New York Siaats Zeitung describes the condition of New Orleans outside ot Canal, Rampart, Esplanade and a few other str .-ets as sicken ing and beastly to the last degree. No won' der it is scourged by yellow-fever. The freezing to death of a detachment of Fiench soldiers in a snow-storm in the sub tropical province of Algiers, almost on the borders of the torrid desert, reported by ca ble, is the latest thrilling military event.

AMERICAN TI14DE WITH FRAXCE. Plans of JUeon liioiteo t jKxteaa Kran co-American Commerce Ills Visit to tbe South and West What He Hopes to Accomplish. New York Tribune, March 27th: A Tribune representative called on M. Leon Chotteau on Monday, at his room in the Everett house, and found him packing: his trunk for a tour in the south and west. "How ar4 vou coming on with your work of convincing the American people that they ought to make a commercial treaty with France?" waB asked. "Pretty well," re plied M. Chotteau. "I am now going to Washington, and shall soon visit Kichmond, Charleston, New Orleans and St. Louis. I work upon the boards ot trade, ana endeavor to convince them that it is tor their advan tage to have a larger market for American products in France, and to extend the commerce between tne two countries oy mutual concessions. "You are, it I under stand your position, the authorized rep resentative of the French boards of trade?" Yes; the chambers of com merce of all the principal cities of France.exceDt Nantes. ioin in this movement. The Nantes people held aloot from fear that a liberal treaty would bring in American manufactures to compete witn tneir pro ducts." "What is your plan of operations i I address mvself to the commercial bodies of your principal cities, and thus endeavor to create a public opinion favorable to a treaty ot commerce mutually advantageous to Doth nations. It such an opinion is created by a discussion of the . subject, the rest will be easy enough. The two governments will negotiate a treaty, and it will be submitted afterward to your senate tor conhrmatior. " W hat is your programme r W hat do you desire should be reduced, and to what ex tent, and what compensating advantages do you anticipate will be given to American products exported to t ranee? "lou mis take my purpose. I have no programme. A protrramme would be fatal. First we must deal with general principles, leaving the details to be worked out afterward. Look at the situation, lake out your cotton. petroleum, tobacco and a few other products of the soil, and your total exports to France amount to only two million dollars a year, l ou want a market in our country tor many manufactured articles wmcn are now shut out by the high rates of our general tariff. VV e want a more extensive market in the United States for our manufactures, which you now load down with duties of over fifty per cent, increased commerce would be a good thing for both countries. Why then should we not come together and make a treaty that will be of advantage to both sides?" "It is easy to tell abcut general nrinciDles in a tariff, but when you come to the practical business of framing Buch a treaty as you propose, you would encounter a mul titude of difficulties. Every important re duction you would suggest in the duties of yo.ir products would hit some American man ufacturing interest. The men likely to be hurt would go to Washington and protest Htrainst the treatv. Ihev would combine their forces and make a tremendous row. The treaty might be for the single banefit of the people of this country, but if it threatened the life of a dozen prosperous home indus tries, it would have a hard time to secure rat ification." "Pardon me. It would net be necessary to apply any fixed rule of reduction. We could make exceptions. If anv important Ameri can industries were likely to be injured by a lower tantt they could be let alone. D jr in stance, silk might be excepted from the terms of the treatv. I am going to confer with your silk manufacturers and get their views. Piease understand me. I am not here to advance any particular scheme or svstem of duties. I simply desire, as the representative of the commercial interests of my country, to stimulate an agitation of lower duties on both sides of a treaty that shall work for the good of the two great republics of the world and draw them into closer relations. All details can bo left to the practical statesmanship of the two pov ernments." M. Chotteau left this city yester day morning for Washington, St. Louis, New Orleans and Cincinnati. Ua nis return here he will go to Chicago and San Francisco. A Wonderful Invention How It will Work. New York, April 1. This afternoon's Graphic has an illustrated artiole on the tel ectroscope, an instrument by which inani mate obiects at a distance may be complete ly recognized. A Portugese mechanician, of Washington City, has amplihea and brought to practical conclusions, after long months of tedious experimentation and no little selt-de nial, the 6ubtle and complicated combination of certain electrical and magnetic conditions by which au observer, looking into the telec trosccpe at St. Louis, sees whatever may be iu front of the instrument at the further terminal of the line in Jefferson City. Alter describing both the transmitting and receiv ing portions of the apparatus, the writer con tinues: There is, therefore, formed in the electrified gas such an arrangement of the lines of magnetic intensity and force as will form, were they visible, an image of the ob ject, the operation being somewhat analo gous to the action of light in the photo graphic process, ihe magnetic image bo formed is faithfully reproduced in the re ceiver, but also in an invisible state. It is however, by mf-ans ot polarization rendered visible by the Nichols prism, aad the para' magnetic effect of the hollow electromagnet, the apparatus which has boen submitted to the writer, gives good results. Ordinary newspaper print placed one foot in front of the transmitter is easily read in the receiver at a distance of six blocks, the length of the test line; the faintest colors are also readily distinguished. A lret-Cl:uts Kicker and a Hot Gom peler. St. Loui3 Globe-Democrat: "Horse-trading is a most demoralizing occupation. Like death, it reduces all men to tbe same level. Rev. S. N. Giiffith, pastor of the Methodist Episcopal church at iond du Lac, Wisconmn bought a lot of horses a short time ago, to send to his farm in Minnesota. Among them was a first-class kicker, and the good, man thought it would be wise to swap tha beast off for a more conservative animal. He made the trade with many mental reserva' tions, and congratulated himself on. his good fortune in getting rid ot his coo.volatil steed. But the man with whora he traded f-oan tired ot his bargain and tried to induce Mr. Griffith to swap back, on 'the groirad that ne naa net saiu anytning a-ooui tne tenaen cies of the kicker. I ailing in this the lay man brought suit to recover damages, and a nrolane. iurv. after hearing all the evidence brought in a verdict for seventy-five dollars and costs against the clergyman. It Mr. Griffith had been a constant reader of the great ietigious daily we are confident that he would have acted better in the trade, and would have fared better with the jury. The Wabash Hallway Company. Toledo, April 3. The Commercial, this morning, has the following in regard to the recent 6uits against the Wabash railway company in the alleged interest of holders of bonds of the old Toledo and Wabash railroad company and including the application for the appointment of a receiver for the Wabash railway company. Information has been re' ceived at the office of the Wabash railway company here that the recent erroneous ac. counts of the legal proceedings against the company ate all traceable to one ot the part' ners in a firm of brokers in railroad securities in New York. These accounts are calculated to injuriously tffect the stock of the corpora. tioD, aud their frequency is thought to denote the existence ot a desperate short interest. The professed object of the suit is to fasten upon the Wabasu railway six hundred thou sand dollars of unsecured bonds, issued it 1862 by the old Toledo and "Wabash railroad and on which no interest has been paid for several years. jNew bills are nled weekly, and one-sided accounts are immediately sent out. r-ive ainerent attempts in as many years to fasten these bonus upon the Wabas road have already failed, and none tf the recent proceedings have given thus far any promise ot a different result. Protecting the Judiciary. Washington dispatch to the Ciacinnati Enquirer: "Senator Whyte, of Maryland, deserves especial credit for taking the ini tiative in practical measures to protect the independence of State tribunals against the despotic designs of Band, Rives and other Federal judges. His bill, which was intro duced yesterday, provides that no prosecution for any crime or misdemeanor, charged to have been committed against the laws of any State, pending in any State court, shall be removed to any Federal court. It is pro vided, however, that a final judgment in the highest court of a State may be re-examined in the supreme court of the United States, i' pon a writ of error, as fully as is now al lowed by law. Section two repeals the laws enacted by the Republican party contrary to tho principle of this bill, and section three provides that causes of this nature which have been transferred to the Federal courts shall be forthwith remanded to the State courts. This, and the preceding bill of Sena- tor Whyte, constitute a most important part of ihe great struggle now beiog made against Radical tyranny by packed janes and corrupt partisan judges. The action of Democratic congressmen on these bills wdl test their fidelity to their oaths and tbe pnitiplea ot the party. It is apparent to all close observ ers that the administration and the Radical leaders will hereafter rely for success not so much on the use of the army as on super visors, deputy-marshals, packed courts and uries. and tbe utter subversion of btate tribunals to Radical judges. If they are al lowed to go on as they have begun, the con test of 1880 is virtually decided in their favor." Radical Base. The new apportionment of Indiana into congressional districts by the Democratic leg islature has thrown the Radical rampants into a fierce rage. As these districts will now stand, the Democrats-, basing the calculation on the vote of last yertr, will have nine cer tain districts and the Republicans one, while three are left ia djmbt. It should be borne in mind that he Democrats have' six repre sentatives from Indiana in the present house, out of thirteen, though they carried the ate at the last election by neatly fifteen thousand. For years the State was most in famously gerrymandered by the Morton Re publicans. For a long while the Democrats could ot ly secure three or four representa tives, though they lacked but a few votes of carrying the State. One district alone, in the southeastern part of the State, was carved out especially to keep Mr. Hoi man out of congress. It was over one hundred miles long, and the people in the lower end of the district never saw or heard of the peo ple at the upper end. Ot course, in the eyes of righteous Radicalism, it is "revolution ary" for the Democrats to correct this wrong. Kleraldlc. Snobiem. Washington correspondence Boston Jour nal: "One of the characteristics of Washing ton society is the passion br the diBplay ot armorial bearings. Mr. Spofford has a good collection of books on heraldry in the con gressional library, and when old man Snob bought bis way into the bouse of representa tives, his daughters soon found the arms of Sir Hugh de bnob, who was knighted Dy Queen Elizabeth. They at once appropriated them, as tne jackass took possession ot tne ion r skin, and the bnob arms have been made to do much duty. The lion rampant as a crett, with the shield bearing three chevrons azure on a field gules, ia painted on their carriage doors, is stamped on their note paper, is engraved on their silverware, and is embroidered on their parlor fire-screen. Yet they have neither obtained these armorial bearings by royal grant, by hereditary descent, or by capture. It is obtaining respectability under laise pretenses. A Diagnosis and Care. Macou Sun : "We have been experiment ing lately with various explosive compounds for the purpose of preparing a bomb-shell for the Okolona States, something that will scatter Harper. He is too concentrated. Bourbon a little diluted, softened with sugar. and fragrant with mint, is better than a '93 proof article that hares up in blue blazes it it reaches the boiling point. Absolute alcohol cannot so much further than that. In politico-medical sense we hardly know how to treat Harper. It won't do to apply the actual cautery, and a eoothinsr emollient lo tion would prove equally inefficacious, lie needs an alterative, something that will gradually loosen the chronic tenacity vith which he clings to the antiquity ot politics, and eliminate the barnacles trom his political creed. However, we had rather shake hands with Harper than to find fault with him. Tftla is What the Sew York Tribune callM rower for f reedom.; Louisville Courier-Journal : "The govern ment spent thirty thousand dollars hiring an extra police force in Philadelphia to 'guard the purity of the ballot' at the November election. Thera were se:en hundred and seventy-three Federal constables employed to aid twelve hundred Philadelphia policemen. and yet the United States marshal confessed before the Wallace committee, last week, that tne seven hundred and seventy-three depu ties with pistols and pludgeons, were not really needed. That is the opinion of many Philadelphia Republicans, also, and there is not a Federal marshal in the country who can prove that the constabulary system, with its function ot arrests without process, has ever been used save to disfranchise voters and to accomplish partisan ends." Whi',Zdf,h Hates Jeff. New Orleans Democrat: "During that period of joint service in the seiate by the Aiissi8sippian and the MichigaBder, which was referred to bv the latter, it happened on one occasion that Mr. V tvis, white speaking. was subjected to a series ot maudlin and meaningless interruptions from Mr. Chandler, Alter patiently enduring tn-m tor some time, the senator from Mississippi finally put a peremptory stop to them by plainly telling tne senator from Michigan that he was 'im. pertinent,' and forbidding further inter ruption. Thts affront was not noticed at the time, but how gallantly aud faithfully its memcry has been treasured for a favorable oppottunity to avenge it, is shown by the late exhibition of loag-range firing in the senate.' South Carolina Jnte. According to the official report; quoted by the New York Sun, more than thirty million dollars are paid annually by tbe United States for imported fibers flax, hemp and jute and this, too, notwithstanding tae tact that in no other country m tne world can these fibers be grown so well and cheaply. It has rv;en demonstrated that jute can be profitably grown in South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Louisiana, lexas, aid wherever there is a hot, damp climate, and a sou of sandy clay or alluvial mould. It is four timed as productive as cotton or lax, and re auiri?s not more than one-tenth the labor to produce it. In its manufacture there is not half the losi there is in hemp and flax, while jute bags are worth more than flix, and last longer.

VOLUNTARY TESTIMONY. FUtraet from the JSaUunore "ti rrican," December 21, 1878. " The Pnlvermacher Electric Belt Is recom mended to general use for tbe following rea sons: First, for ":ts wonderful properties for the cure of diseases of the kidneys, stomach, liver and blood; secondly, for Its extreme simplicity, and tbe fact of its being applied outside, precludes all possibility of any in Jury being done to the patient, as an external remedy is universally acknowledged to be safe. Another advantage Is tho facility with which the progress of the disease mid euro can be watched, and if the Belt be not quite in the right place, It can be very easily reml J asLed so as to cover the parts affected. The 1'Qlvermacher Electric Belt, and its perfec tion, has been hailed with delight, not only by tbe sufferers who have regained health, enjoyment, and a new leaso of life through its beneficent qualities, but by tbe medical profession, who very frequently prescribe its use to their patients."
