If iherc be anything which etrik.es terror to the llcpublican party it is the jin posnd inspection of the government recurJj. The work of investigation and rei'orm has already commenced. Brief as has been his experience Garland has discovered tlio most shameful abuses and has commenced a praotical reform. The boots show that partisans have been civon siuecures without authority of law. Lim.ir is overhauling his department, anl thousands of barnacles will have to go. Manning has already discovered fearful abuses and inaugurated a general reform, and the telegraph announces that Commissioner Black has discovered the gro-.st pension frauds. The plowshare of investigation will turn up frauds which will startle the country. The books are to be opened in every depart mtiit of the government, and many coa- ccaled iniuuities exposed. Cleveland )s determined to purify the official life of the nation. There is a prevailing belief that the people have been persistently robbed for twenty years by the Republican party. The country cannot understand how officials with salaries barely sufficient for the economical support of their fami- lit s hoc mie millionaires. There is sonie t'.'ir wrong when an army of office liw :ors thrive and fatten on the public spoil". The investigations, already made have shown that not one-third of these are not J -d. yet each new Kepublicau ad ministration increased the number of those vampires. For twenty years the IlcpuUicau party has gone steadily on in. TL-.i.-ing the offices and absorbing the rivetiiies of the people. They had a fy.-teiii by which the receipts of the Federal government reached an an nual ?sr.-gate of SXS,00O,iK'l, while the K--;Ui:uutc expenditures ought not to exceed half that amount With all the devices which the Republicans could employ, there was a surtlus of SllX),OMI,IKMl in the .treasury. Yet the methods by which this money was disbursed are unknown to the pub lie. Bi'pcati d attempts have been made ly Democrats in Congress to get a sight of the boots. The nearest approach to success wa3 made under the resolution ol SLi:ator Davis, of '(Vest Virginia, when it v;;s discovered that the books of the Trta-ury Department were covered with erne ires, aiki the account of millions of dollars was carried under the head of "unkmvarn expenditures" A record of tV.-A'vK . of freeubacks w&t carried on the books of the department without any iuiid iu the Treasury to justify it. .Nobody knew what had become of the money. Secretary b'hermau testified be fore the Senate committee that he found this account on the hooks when he came iij o the- Treasury, and Lad carried it forward, but. he did not know what it m aat or what it was intended to cover. Ti.is is one of the many bimilar instances. But the books have been transferred to the inspection of honest men and the ex posure of corruption sad the inaugura tion of honesty and reform will sink the llepub'.iean party into oblivion and make tl o Democratic party invincible until it t:o becomes corrupted by a long and UuLroten lease of power. Til f. ritEven a tiieik kepvblm' What toils and plots and conspiracies an 1 tamuhs and revolutions and martyr d.:::;s Fr.ince has, for a century, per for.tie 1 and undergone to establish a re public! It haa one. at last, that shows Pome powers of endurance, but it dots ii t arid cannot bring all tluj blessings a republic is capable of c .uferriog. The reason i3 that the French, now they have o!;!.a;iif:d their republic, fail to act upon re;uL!ican principles, and without such ai ii a republic is a mere mass of forms --hells that contain no pearl. For a republic to endure and to confer good utnu its citizens it must Le peaceful. War requires despotism and demands secrecy. War abounds in rapid changes of fortune and its instrument is Tiolenee. To meet changes with prompt decision, and wield violence with the most destructive effect, gro. t power must be placed in individual hands, .''nd the designs and strategy of th'j.-e in i'Owcr muit be arran-ed in secret. Sueli individual power is a dao:'cr to liberty, auJ secrecy leads to corruption and fosters personal ambi ti'.n. What is worse, the people a.t large become taitcr for victory and neglect to watch for their liberty, and the cunning and designing take advantage of both their hot eagerness and their relaxed watchfulness, and the republic perishes, or, if it be su-taiued in name and form, it is denuded of the liberty it should secure. All these evils France has" de liberately summoned into existence, and it is already beginning to reap the bitter fruit. While proud of the liberties their republic holds out to them, they have re-nior.-"lcssly disregarded the liberties of others, nod in Tunis, Madagascar, Ton iuin and elsewhere they seek to deprive whole peoples of their freedom and to subdue them to a dependent con ditio la earning out this unrepub liran policy they have met with a severe cheek, and orrc of their armies is in hot foot and disastrous retreat. The Chi 'nese, now pos.--'-.-oe-d of modern engines of war and of the knowledge how to use them, have administered a severe lesson to the isvadi.rs. Xobody pities the French ia their misfortune. They drew the sword unjustly upon inoffensive peo ple, and have met their just desert. M.-.ddened by defeat, the Parisians broke out iuto tumult, pouring out execrations upon the ministers of government, ac cusit.g them of treason and threatening the guillotine, because the Chinese had put their army to flight, War has always been the downfall of the French .governments that have indulged in it.

The name and form of a republic is but a lie and a snare, unless a love of liberty for others as well as ourselves animate our aspirations, and 'unless we mete out to others the jus tice we demand for our selves. MA KM PR MEN I AND COMISU. As our cyo runs over the newspaper telegrams ev'jry morning the mental vision traces a lurid and a lengthening line crimsoned with blood. War, horrid war, is passing up and down the earth, like Satan, seeking whom to devour. The awful words pronounced on tne .dount of Olives that preceded the de struction of Jerusalem tingle in the ears: "Ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars, for nation shall rise against na tion, and kingdom against kingdom." England has troubles in Basutoland, in South Africa; her armies are carrying and enduring destruction and death amid the desert sands and beneath the fiery sky of the Soudan, and where the gran ite hights of Afghanistan rise toward heaven England and Russia are facing each other with threatening mien that tells of weeping mothers and soldiers writhing upon a gory field in the days to come. France is carrying carnage to the swamps of Tonquin and to the broad streams of China, and the rattle of her arms is heard in the far-ofT wilds of Madagascs.r, where the half-converted people are learning the miserable truth t'oat the Christians send them a book whose precepts they themselves disregard and disobey. Italy is sending her war vessels to the Red sea to seize upon ter ritory there, regardless of whose rights may suffer. Canada is summoning her troops to avenge the blood of her sons s red in the distant wilds of the Saskat chewan, where the white man's injustice has once more provoked the impotent wrath of the dusky denizens of the wil derness. Turkey is trembling because of the approaching day when Russia will seize upon the Bosphorus, and the chant of the Christian priest once more be heard in St. Sophia, where for centuries the walls have echoed the Allah il Allah of the prophet of Medinah. Denmark, Holland and Belgium look to the future apprehensively, dreading the time may come when Germany will sweep away their nationalities and reduce them to provinces of the. spreading German em pire. Austria is pushing toward Salon- ica: Russia threatens to absorb Bosnia; Grecoe is striving to gain more of the land that was theirs in the olden time. In the midst of this, armies are drilling, ships building and gunpowder grinding. In Petersburg, London, Berlin and else where, now and then, the shriek df ex ploding dynamite spreads abroad fear and death. In Ireland there is mutter ing of coming mischief when England shall be struggling with Arab and Cossack. Xor is the New World free from strife. Five States upon the Isth nius are preparing each to kill each other's citizens in as great numbers as possible, and Mexico may be drawn into the struggle. We ourselves can scarcely escape all difficulty, for while tho Isth mus is the scene of war the vast millions of property -.here belonging to European people must either be kept safe by our iufiuence or European soldiery must mount guard upon territory south of us, which is contrary to the non-interference policy of the United States. Many read ers will thank heaven that none of these wars and battles are within the territory of the I'nitod States, but are we as free from danger as the unobservant think? It the five states of the Isthmus became involved in war, with Mexico perhaps as a sharer, wil l the vast property our citi zens hold there be safe? If England and France insift upon sending ships and landing soldiers to nrotect their prop erty can we prevent them? But to at! in it them is to lose sight of the Monroe doc trine. Warn and rumors of wars are all over the world, and even we are not without something at stake. Each na tion must "dree its weird," and we ours among them, but tho labor will require more to be done both upon land and water than we have done since the close of the war sdlowed the dulcet voice of peace to lull us with its harmony. EDUCATE KDVCATEI EDI t' ATE! If the children of the State are left untaught in the school, they will learn in the streets. Their gain there will be the knowledge of crime, their earning the penitentiary. To give them what they have earned costs theState much. While awaiting trial the State is deprived of the wealth they should produce, and has to maintain t.hem besides. And not only maintain them, but to build the prisons in which they are confined, and pay the police who arrest them, the lawyers who prosecute th;in and the judges who con demn them. If they are made to sup port themselves when condemned, it is by taking work which should support honest men, and at the expense of such horrors, aoi wrong, and crejty, and murder as h:is been so bravely showed up by the Nashville Banuef. The State paa all the expenses, yet haggles, and hesitaUs, snd shows parsi mony when money is wanted tp educate the young citizen, arouse his moral nature, encourage his love of independence and put into his hands the means of main taining himself honorably, and contrib uting to add to the wealth of a State. To be miserly and mean in supplying educa tion to the yjung is to be guilty of a great wrong and to disgrace the State with injustics. To leave the child in ignorance, and then punish the man for the consequences of that ignorance, is to trample upoti right and outrage the pure behests of equity. Educate, educate, educate. Every citizen when he casts his vote ought to be sure he is giving it to one who will battle .for the cause of education. Every patriot who desires that his country should be honored will advocate education for every child that breathes iu uir. Every Christian that contributes tj educat ii? ignorant of other lands will toil and pray for he ed ucation of hii own, JIELE3A, ARE.

Washington, April 2. In answer to a telegram sent last night by Secretary Whitney to the president of the Pacific Mail Steamship Company, at New York, relative to the number of men the com pany's vessels can take to Aspinwall without delay, the following reply was received this morning: "We can carry 200 men in the City of Para to-morrow st noon, and 000 in the Acapulco next Monday." Secretary Whitney replied: "We will ship 200 men by your steamer to-morrow noon with tents and camp equipage. The Tennessee, with Admiral Jewett, will leave New Orleans probably to-day, wi'h an extra complement of ma rines for Aspinwall, and with extra pro visions. This will place four ships and between 400 and 500 available men at Aspinwall for land service. As t-9 Mon day's steatuey, Till communicate here after." The men will be taren from fke Brooklyn navy -yard. Ia reply to a telegram sent to Cqmmander Kane of the Galena the following was also received to-day: "Transit is closed. Steamship property safe and la my possession ; also railroad property at north end of island. It is advisable to send another vessel." When it was learned in the Navy Depart ment this morning that the Secretary had determined to protect American in terests at the isthmus by force there was considerable excitement among the naval officers on duty here. A number of them immediately volunteered their services to go to Anpinwall. The selection of officers, however, has been left to the board of detail, which convened at 11:30 o'clock. It is understood that Maj. Charles Hayward, of the marine corps, who is in charge of the marine bat racks at Brooklyn, will have immediate com mand of the marines. Several officers of rank, however, will probably be detailed to command the expedition. A prominent navy officer, speaking of the Panama difficulty and the sending of a force from the United States, said to day: "It is a subject of regret among naval officers that the sailors who will probably form part of the forces to be sent to the Isthmus will not be as well armed as the marines, or even as well as the forces with which they will have to contend. Their arms consist of the short magazine guns which will not com pare in range with the Springfield rifles, neither are they supplied with bayonets.' Government officials are of the opinion that the transit will not remain closed for any length of time. It will depend upon information derived in the mean time whether any additional force will be sent to Aspinwall Monday. The Pacific Mail Steamship Company has reduced the rate for taking the men to f 10 per man, including their subsistence upon the pas- Grtmt display of Ladies' and 3Iiss . ' str nrni tp ) sage and including the tents and camp eauipaKe. 1 bis will cover about the actual cost to the company tor takinir them. The four ships-ef-war which will be at Aspiuwall by the time the' Pacifio Mail steamer arrives, have Gatling guns for use on hind, and a force of sailors trained in their management. JOE JOU.NSTOJi, According- to the Brwt Informxtliia that T. . Crawford Can fciullior. Washington special to the St. Louis PoHt-IMtjatrh: Gen. Joseph E. John ston, who has been appointed Railroad Commissioner, will be chiefly known in the future through his narrative ot the war. He is a fine military student, and has enormous technical knowledge of army matters. But it is hard to see where he has earned his great reputation as a soldier, unless it is irom the fact that he rose to such high rank in the regular army be fore the war of the rebellion. Inlookjng over his military record the other day, on the day of his appointment, I could not nnd tnat ne naa ever accompusnea a single brilliant victory. He has never won a noted battle where he had been alone in command. The only prominent victory with which he was associated was at the battle of Bull Run. When he marched from Harper's Ferry to the battlefield of Manassas, he displayed some skill through his evasion of Gen. Patterson, who had been sent out to obstruct his way. Although he was the senior of Gen. Beauregard, and was entitled to tne command at the battle of Bull Run, he yielded to the other and co-operated with him. He commanded in the Southwest against Grant. He sought to relieve Vicksburg, but he was defeated at Jackson, Mis?., and driven back. His career from that time on was a succession of defeats. Ho had com maad oi the Confederate army which sought to oppose Gen. Sherman's march to the sea. . He was defeated in every battle that he fought with Sherman, and although he had one of the highest po sitions in the Confederacy, that of gen eral, he was deposed from all command by Jefferson Davis on the 1st of Jaiy, 18C4, and was given nothing to do until r ebruary ot the following year. He was placed in command of the army in South Carolina, and began his old work of being whipped by Sherman as the latter marched toward Richmond, from the eastern coast. He surrendered to Sher man 55,000 men the latter paTt of April of that year. I have always had an idea that Sherman helped magnify Johnston's reputation because he was the Confed erate generaf with whom he had the most fighting and who was finally captured by him. Johnston does not appear to be popular with his Southern associates. Everyone con cedes him to be an honorable, upright man, but nearly all of them deny his ability. You will find very few of the Virginians who take much pride in claiming him as a resident of their State. The majority of them Bay that he does not live there at all. This is scarcely true. He has lived in this city ever since he left -Congress. He never lived in Vir ginia before the war, although it was his birthplace.' During the war he was al ways in the South or Southwest. After the war he lived in Virginia only long enough to fulfill the requirements of the local suffrage law. He was sent to Con gress once, but during his entire term he remained in Washington, t his dissatis fied the Virginians. He was accused of having come to the State simply for the purpose of getting the office. He was not re-elected. So it can be easilyunder stood that Virginians do not take kindly to his being charged to their State in the distribution of offices. It has been said that Gen. Johnston is poor, and that he needed the place given him. This is not strictly true. His wife has a moderate fortune, enough to enable them to live with perfect independence. CAPlTAlTrOIXTS. Left for Albany. Washington, April 2. Secretary Man ning left Washington this evening for Albany to attend to some pressing private business. He wili be gone about ten days. Silver Purchases. The Treasury Department to-day pur chased 40O.C0O ounces of silver for delivery at the New Orleans and Philadelphia mints. An InterCHtlns Point. The Secretary of the Treasury has just decided an interesting point arising nnder the Chinese migration action. Joe James, a Chinaman residing in this coanlry, and who has embraced the Christian religion, applie-1 for permission to bring his wife, who lives iu China, to this country. The department decided, nnder a recent ruling of the United States Circuit Court, of Cali fornia, that she cannot be allowed to land. The Treasury Department. Secretary Manning has addressed a cir cular letter to all department officers, re questing them to report to hiai in writing as soon as practicable to what extent, in their opinion, the force employed under their direction can be reduced without detriment to the public service, and whether the method of doing business can be simplified, and, in general, to make such suggestions and recommendations as may occur to them, whereby the efficiency of the service may be improved and the expenses curtailed. The Old Winnebago Reservation. The Secretary of the Interior has re ceived from the Attorney-General an opinion concerning the status of the lands in the old Winnebago or Crow Creek Indian reservation of Dakota. The Attorney-General holds that the order of Presi dent Arthur of February 27th last (open ing those lands to settlement) is inooera tive, for the reason that the Sioux Indians hold title to the lands under the treaty of IStid. The land has a'ready been covered with entries by w hite settlers under Pres ident Arthur's order, but it is probable that the effect of this decision will be to dep ive them of any rights they may have acquired. SHOCKING KEVELATION. A Den of Unsurpassed Infamy In Wis. ronsin. Where Tonus Uirls AreKepttiuarded toy fJK load honiids and Forced to Live Lives of Shame. Chicago aY'H's, Tuesday: In the Chi cago Avenue Police Cou-t a young girl was arraigned for disorderly conduct. She had once ieen fair. Her name was Maggie Doyle, and her father va the prosecutor. She was Baid to be a dissipated character, and her father desired that she be sent to the House of tfie Good Shepherd, which was done. When the girl was taken back the father turned to b pol;.:en;an end told a sad story. "In Marinette, Wis ," said he, "there IT, three miles from town, a disreputable house, kept by a man named Crawford aud Bill Diamond, who also keep places on Washington Btreet in Chicago. Nearly all the inmates are no better than slaves, and belong in Chicago. They are picked up in a saloon on Washington street, by a man who is known, who promises to pay them $-50 if they will go to Marinette for ten days. This man gets i-5 for every girl he sends, and when the vidime get there they are told thay are J5a in debt 125' for the commission and their railroad fare. Then their clothes are taken from them and they are put in short dresses. All letters which leave the plat e are examined by a manager, and destroyed or sent as ired. A bou c tho yard and near the building are stauCZ t-fity-two blood hounds so that none of the girls can escape except by the trout entrance, and that is well guarded. In case they do escape these dogs are sent in pursuit of the fugitives. Fines are also imposed for trivial affairs, and one inmate, Maud Kasket, who had been there two years, found herself to be $259 in debt. This place is visited only by log.era and a rough element The girls who once gst in that place never get out unless their friends accidental y learn of their where abouts. When they die they are buried in the woods in the rear of the den of in famy. "My daughter, Maggie, and Mary Chris topherson, living at the corner of Green and llubbard streets, were among the vic tims of that slave-den,'' said Mr. Doyle. "When they were going up the conductor warned them not to drink or they would never know where they were. Maggie tried to write home several times but could not At last she got a letter to a disreputable woman on Fourth avenue, who informed me. I went there mvself, and saw the prison, the bloodhounds and the graveyard in the woods. The place wai burned by the citizens' committee two years ago, but is now as bad as ever. I had to take the sheriff with me before I could get my girl." The girl s..ys this story is true, and also that several more girls are expected to ar rive at Marinette from Chicago in a week or so.

The selection of tho efficient corps of officers presiding over each department in educated scient ists and cultured graces of gentlemen, reflects credit 'upon the chief of this grand national department It com prises three great divisions under the direct supervision of Mr. J. Edward Earl, who presides with that gracely modesty wreathing great minds. They are : The United States National Museum, the United States Fish Com mission and the Smithsonian Institute. This leaflet proposes to note first the National Museum, comprising archaeol ogy, ethnology, textiles, boat models, art, fisheries and fish culture, natural his tory and animals, capture ot animals, utilization ot animals and animal prod ucts, mineralogy, gems, precious stones, building stones, metallurgy and coals. Mr. Earl introduced J. W. Edwards, the traveled scientist, twenty years in the employ of geological surveys, and also the prince-presiding of jewels. Unhesi tatingly one follows the strong guidance ot this science-imparting geologist, as it were, in the depth and darkness of the coal mines. Massive photographs taken in the gloom of the heart of the globe by electric light, first ever taken in a coal mine, represent the formation of the eoal seams aud its peculiarities, together with the men at work. Great masses ot varied coal hard by are Jrom the Kohinoor col liery, Schuykill county. Pa., and Vir ginia, including anthracite, semi-bituminous, bituminous, splint and canncl coal. These rare photographs are the electric ladder by which imagination gains al most a real visit to the brave miner and his honest labor. Glass cases reveal his habiliments of work, in heavy shoes, halt-inch thick soled, glittering in three double rows of metal pegs, blue yarn shirts, and coarse cotton trousers, round black hats with tiny lamp attachment. Suits halt worn are viewed with frayed sleeves, worn boots, an old hat, creased, perhaps, in a frequent back-tipping from the labor-dewed brow of one of that noble class of men who labor in darkness at risk of life that the world may have light aud heat. As a pleasing offset to iu tense sympathy the kindly geologist points you the Davy's safety lamp, in vented for miners' protection from damp, into which the poisonous fire-damp en ters and is consumed, and the ingenuity oi the wire gauze inclosing the lamp's flame prevents the outward igniting of the damn with the name, and further more shows the photographed interior of a miner s borne, a neat interior, a wife, 4k child, a piano, combining three choicest earth blessings at least tor the delver in darkness. Ores are to view m two extensive cases gold, silver, lead, copper, iron and steel. The gold quartz is crushed by stamping. Mercury is placed on copper plates. The crushed material is placed on them and the meroury, seizing on to tne gold, iorms amalgam. 1 he amalgam is scraped off the plates and retorted, where the mercury velatilizes and there from quartz you have the pure gold. Gold-leaf displays represent one gold dollar by hammering process made into 100 sheets of foil four inches square. There are the New Jersey methods by fusion electro-litic process, smelting and refining works, Edward Babcock & Sons, Newark, N. J. Various specimens of silver ore ruby-silver, on account of its beautiful ruby color by transmitted light, two varieties, light and dark ruby. The German name is rothgilligen.or red golden. Tin, obtained by mercury, vol atilizing leaving pure tin; "coke-plate" brand, used for canning fruit; "old-castle," used on the Pacific coast for packing salmon, is the finest brand of tin. Further explained, ordinary tin ware has a quite thin coating of real tin. The tin ores from San Jacinto, Cal., are shown. There are solder specimens; Babbit and anti-friction metals, used for stereotyping, etc. ; antimony; sulphide eres from Utah and California; cinnabar Irom California j sulphide of mercury; lead the sulphide ores from Missouri; native copper from Lake Superior region in Michigan, including water-worn or surface specimens; specimens of mass copper, and chips obtained in cutting up masses iu mines; specimens showing the disseminated free copper in the rock, both amygaloid and conglomerate. Also added specimens illustrating the dressing of the ores ; bismuth oxidized ores from Utah ; nickel and cobalt;, the sulphide ores from Pennsylvania and Missouri. Tho collection of iron ores comprises 500 specimeus, showing the prominent varie ties of the different regions. It is a col lection made by the tenth census, under the direction of Prof. R. Pumpellery, to illustrate the iron industry of the United States, showing all the different kinds and va rieties of iron ore lound in this country. Maganese ore from Virginia and Georeia, nnc from New Jersey, Tennessee, Vir. ginia, Missouri and Kansas; native sul phur from Nevada, iron pyrites from Massachusetts and Virginia. Beginning with the ore as mined: each step in its preparation for smelUng is shown, to gether with the by or waste products of such treatment To illustrate the smelt ing operation, the ores, the fuels, the fluxes, and every ether material entering into the operation, are shown. Follow ing through theprooess, each product of each operation up to the final product of the works is represented. To these are added, where practical, illustrations of materials ot construction, such as fir. clays and sand. The furnaces and tools are shown by specimens, views and de scrlpticEj. lhe intorost and vaiuo of these collections does not lie so much in the speoimens themselves as in their be ing thoroughly connected and in the kind aud amount of learned information that can be given in regard to them. It fur ther demonstrates the great time, care nd the attention given lor educational purposes for our country. Mr. Edwards fluently explains the extractions of metals by chloridizing, roasting and milling proo cesses. - ' Lithology is represented by building stones. Granite, sandstone, marble, ser pentine, slate q-uarries, all arranged al- fihabetically, according to States, in abeled dressed cubes.

They occur in veins traversing clay state. The Shah of Persia seleets and reserves ever for himself the finest of them. This gem is the one most easily counterfeited. Much of the turquoise worn is fossil bone, colored by phosphate iron called onontolito. There is a pretty little legend of it that the possessor would be prevented from hurt in case of falling from hights and the gem losing color at the possessor's death.
