there is getting to be in a great man;
f li is states Try nixed condition if"
tilings in politics and one which is liable
to knock to pieces the "foregone coni-ln
.ions" of politicians. New York repuUli.
i-ans bavt overthrows their great Iw,
Mr. Coakllnr, and it is yet uncertain
whether ha will try to regain his scat of
power or not new that the administration
i supposed to be Tory friendly to him.
Should ho regain control of tho party mi-
liincry in that state it would bring np tla
tuostion whether the machine republicans
with the aid of John Kelly could carry the
5 late against tho doinocratl and such re
publicans as would be driven front their
old allegiance by the return of Conklin:' to
power and tho allegiance with Kelly
which that return would probably bring.
For years the two great exponents of
tho boss system have been Conkling in
New York and Cameron, father and then
the son, in Pennsylvania. Conkling's
power w:ie broken last year anil if he ever
regains it it will he a contrel over a party
'loomed to defeat under his leadership.
Cameron saw fifty thousand Pennsylvania
republicans voting for an independent last
year and now ho finds bis colleague in the
Senate, Mitchell, become a rank rebel to
his rule. This is a rcmarkablo thing to
tho eyes of Mr. Cameron but it is a very
natural one and comes of the determina
tion of tho party to do its own managing.
Cameron and his stalwarts interviewed
Wolfe and tho Independents and a soi l of
understanding was entered upon that it
was thought wonld unite the republican
vote. But at the republican convention
held tho 10th, while a goad ticket wus
nominated and some taffy given tho indu
pendeuts in the way of civil service reform
resolutions, nothing was done to clumgo
the machine system of choosing delegates
hy which the mass of the republican party is,
r.liut ont from representation in its conven
tions. Mr. Cameron's party put up somo
lino men, a couple of whom arc independ
ents, but they proposed to continue boss
rule, the independents aay, and so the
latter are going to nominate another
ticket tho 2ith.
It is trne that lieu. Denver was not
Cameron's first choice for governor but
that Cameron was forced to to let him
be nominated; tho complaint of llio imlu
imndents is that Beaver got tlio nomina
tion with tlie cousont of the boss instead of
against it. The convention, too, nom
inated lien. Marshall, who Is a popular
independent, for congressman at largo.
The convention on the iUth may indorse
Kawlo and Marshal but will bolt tho real
uf tho ticket. Moantimo, Mitchell in the
senate declares his full support of tho in
dependent movement and it is uneartaiu
whether be will go and join David Davis
or become to the republicans what Mahone
is to the domocrats, or what will bo the
result of the beautiful mixture iu Pennsyl
vania. In Virginia, Mahone, who knocked tho
iifc out of bourbonism last yoar, has fallen
on evil days, and Masscy, one of his liou
tenants, has gone over to tho democrats,
and the legislature has failed to re-district
tho stale. But in spite of Mr. Masscy, and
Iho troubles that have come upon tho ec
centric Mahone, ho still lias tho old Vir
ginia crowd well under, and predictions
that ho will not keep them so aro born full
more of hope than of auy substantial facts.
Tlio Mahone niovemont is being imitalod
in other states, and tho solidity of the
south is something that democratic man
ager begin to tremble for.
In Mississippi Gen. Chalmers who has
lately been turned out of congross and his
placo given to a negro republican, Mr.
Lynch, goes into tho new campaign in
Mississippi with an independent platform
and proposes to fight tho regular demo
cratic organization. Chalmers is not a
beauty iu his political morals, by auy
means, mid his miff at his democratic
brethren because they did not filibuster to
keep him in the seat he obtained by ras
rslity Is a bad motive for his break iu the
tanks. But the more rascals that fall oat
in Mississippi the better it is for those who
want to get tho tight of voting as they
SKC lit.
In Georgia Congressmen I'cHoii and
Sxerji havo kept their scata as independ
ents and seem uow to be aetivcly engaged
in a movement that rebels against the
present democratic management in that
state. Tho independents have a state
convention about the first of Juno at
which it is pretty lure that A. II. Steph
ens will be nominated for governor, lie
has promised to accept, and this new
phaso of matters in Georgia will still
further demoralize democratic conli'lcnce
in a solid south.
They aro getting up petitions iu Maine
to have Mr. Blaine head the republican
ticket for congress. But it would be
dreadful bad for Mr. Blaine to rim on a
ivoneral ticket and havo the rest of tho

I ho . junior editor of tho Free Ycss has

railroad roadbeds. That is we snpposo it
to be a junior editor for he, as often afore
lime, so wrestles with his subject an to got
oajly thrown by it in his own oolumns.
Or it may be that there isn't any junior
editor at all but that this is a caso of sub
urban reporter or iouip track-walker turn
ed correspondent.
The educational experts are in high
ilee. Massachusetts has just abolished
tho school districts in her towns that re
tained them. It is n fact that nearly
every student of school matters favors tho
town Hystout. It is also a fact that the
town system constantly gains ground,
and is now used by over seven millions of
peoplo in the United States. No woador

Thero has bjen coniidcrablo gossip
during the week relative to a very im
portant change in the cabinet. It is iM
that the president wished to liara Mr.
Cbnklin:; at the had of his ca'iinet, ami
thnt iho present secretary of state, Mr.
Krelinghuyaun. is to ho aent to England as
uca'sor to Mr. Lowell, and that Mr.
Cmkling U to take his place. If this
ohango is Intended it will have to bo made
ou, becaUiO Uotn apiwmtmcnts i)UBt be
eonflimcd by the Senate, which will not
remain long in session.
j Tho Scnato is well up with its work,
; and, if tho IIousc wero equally forward,
there weuld bo no reason for continuing
the session lougor than until tho middlo of
June. Tho families of some senators and
members havo already departed for their
homes or for summer resorts, though, as
yet, wo have had very lilllo of Iho " cthori
al mildness" that poets attribute to this
scasou of tho year.',
A bill making the agricultural depart
ment ono of tho executive departments of
the government passed tho House on
Wednesday ty a very largo majority, and,
if this bill passes the Senate, as it is
thought it Will do, the commissioner of
agriculture will bcoomo a member of the
cabinet, with tho title of secretary of
agriculture. Who will be promoted to
the new cabinet office, in caso this bill
becomes a law, has not yet been tho sub
ject of much speculation. The present
head of the bureau is very popular, but
there will no donbt bo other applicants for
the place with its enhanced dignity.
Tbo cabinet of tho president now con
sists of seven members, having chargo,
respectively, of the war, navy, state,
tronsnry, interior, justice and postotlice
departments. Somo other civilized coun
tries have twelve executive departments,
comprising, besides the abovo named
divisions, agriculture, education, com
merce, manufactures and public works.
There is a bill before congross appro
priating $10,000,000 for purposes of educa
tion, te be distributed to tho several statos
and territories in proportion to their
illiteracy as shown by the lato census.
If this bill shall bo passed, it will bo a step
toward tho assumption by tho federal
government of tho educational function
that is now divided by tho public school
systems of tho various states, and, nt no
distant day, wo may have another cabinet
officer, to lie known as tho secretary of
public instruction. There could be much
said for and against such a measure. The
old question of stato rights would be
revived. The demon of centralization
would bo paraded by the press, and on the
stump; but, if the big leviathan Jumbo
establishment, known as tho governmont
printing olliuc, could only bo used to print
cheap arithmetics an I spoilers, instead of
the millions of useless documents now
thrown out, I think the country would
profit by It.
At least one advantage would be gained
by the coiiKoliiI.it ion of our hydra-headed
educational system. A uniform set of text
books wonld bo introduced throughout this
broad land, and a homogeneous mothod of
(instruction and expression inculcated in
youth would tend to tho destruction of
, local prejudice nnd promote tho sontimcut
: of national cohesion. Anothor ndvantago
; would botlmt all school book agents would
I die of starvation.

In thu death of Mr. Darwiu, which took
place on Wednesday afternoon at I o'clock,
at Darwin House, near Bcckenham, Kent,
England, has lost ono of tho greatest of
her philosophers and one of tlio purest and
noblest-miuJod of men. Tho researches
of Mr. Darwin were of such a kind as to
oxposo him to much misconception, chiefly I
in tlie religious world, there boing still
strong disposition in the clerical mind to
cling to Scriptural traditions, even when
they are refuted by the simplest nnd most
obvious evidence. Those, however, who
imagine that Mr. Darwin entered upon
the abstrusj speculations which occupied
the greater part of his life in a spirit of
opposition to religious truth nevor made a
greater mistake. Many of his revolatious
for they descrvo to be so called suggest
ideas of the future of tho human race
vaster, higher and nobler than can be
found in any previous works of the kind.
While Sohoponauor, the pessimist, dwells
incessantly upon tho failures of nature
aud the frailties of tho human spocios,
Darwin shows, by tho gradual advance of
man from a lower range of being, how
progressive the operations of nature really
aro ; nnd tho great moral to bo dcrivod
from his works is, that so far from "flying
in tlio face of the Creator," as it has been
absurdly called, we arc really fulfilling
the purpose of the Supremo Being and
working out tbo proper destiny of man by
seeking deeper and deeper into thoso won
derful problems of the uuivorse still but
imperfectly known. As one of the great
est pioneers of such discoveries nnd rcvol
ations of natural truth tho name of Darwin
will cvtr bo associated. Nothing was
mere worthy of praise than tho calmness
with which Mr. Darwin met with tho vir
ulent attacks upon his theories. ''I do but
chronicle facts, and they will defend
themselves," he said on ono occasion. Tho
immediate causo of death was heart dis
ease, which developed itself about two
months ago. Mr. Darwin was in his
seventy-fourlh year, having been born on
Feb. U'th, lSO'.i. Ho entered at Christ's
college, Cambridge, in 18J7, and took the
degree of I. A. in 18.1-', and that of M. A.
in ISo". Mr. Darwin first became known
as a naturalist by his work ou tho "Zoo
logy of the oyago of tlio Beagle," which
vessel he accompanied iu her circiimnavi
galion of the globe. His great work on
tho "Origin of Species by Means of Nat
ural Selection," which led to so much
controversy, was published in 1S3!), and
his "Descent of Man and Selection in Ke-
latkm to Sex," in lHi't. His Uter works
aro tuo familiar lo require mention. Mr.
Darwin married in 18 VI tlio grand-daush-

Auct ST.
How In Succeed iu Public Life.
Kev. Lvmav Abiiott, Dear Sir: Yours
of the 12th was duly recoived, but tho
press of my public occupations has pre
vented my attending to tho matter until
now. I enoloso replies to tho questions
you suggest.
1. Ought a young man to plan for him
self a political career, or ought in America,
no man to enter politics except as ho is
drawn or driven into thorn by circumstan
ces? I think a young man oujilit not to plan
for himself such a career, iu tho senso of
making it an object of his lifo to hold
oflico in the goveroment of a republic.
Tho true and safo theory of a republican
goveroment is that no one has a right to
be elected or appointed to office, but that
the wholo body of tho 'community has a
right to select and choose thoso citizens
for oflicc whom they think to bo tho best,
or tho best attainable. And the same
principle holds good in cases in which tho
appointing power is lodged in tho hands
of a governor, head of a department, or a
president. Every man, young and old,
ought to bo a politician in the best senso
of the term ; thut is, ono who is taught in
tho scienco of government, and who is
familiar with that branch of ethics which
relates to the practical creation and execu
tion of laws to tlio greatest ndvantago of
tho whole mass of tho people, witli a duo
regard always to tbo rights of minorities
nnd individuals. But ho who makes it his
mission in life to bo the ono to be chosen
to make or execute the laws is necessarily
either a constant ollicc-seeker or office
holder, or both; and lie becomes, in most
instances justly liable to tho suspicion that
ho is inspired by selfishness and not by
patrioism. In such a caso, oven it' it bo that
it is country first and himself last that
ho wishes to serve, his usefiilncs is great
ly impaired; for confidence in our rulers
is no small clement in good and success
ful government.
A young man's objoet should therefore
be, 1 think, to purstio a privato calling,
and with that to cultivate tlie larn-t pos
siblo .acquaintance with public, nliVus and
the principles on which they should be
conducted; to always participate in elec
tions, and to leave public honors and re
sponsibilities to seek him, and not ho
-. What kind of preparation may a
mau make for a potitical career; what
lino of .studies should ho pursuo; and what
is likely to bo tho practical value of tho so
called schools of political philosophy;'
If ho is not to lie what wc have already
spoken of as uudcsirablo a life-lcngoilice-seeker
a young man would not of courso
muke any Bpeeial preparation for a polit
ical career. Tho same studies that would
mnko him best fitted to discharge his
political duties 119 a privato citizen, and
best fit him to prosecute and protect his
privato business aud other private rights,
would, in general, bo most useful for him
should ho bo called to assist in adminis
tering the government.
Besides tho simple scholarly attainments
almost indispensable to tho carrying on of
na,,y business, an acct
accurate kiiowlczo of the
history and constitution of his own state
and of Ilia Luitod States, of the l nvs nf
civilized countries on tho subjects of edu
cation, crime and punishment, taxation,
marriage and divorce, pauperism nnd other
subjects of social science, and of the broad
principles and application of what is
called public law, would cover the largest
part ot the subjects with which he would
have to deal as a legislator or an adminis
trative officer. It hardly uood be said that,
if ho wero to be called to a judicial sta
tion, special and exhaustive study of the
law in detail, together with a knowledge
of its actual practice, would be indispous
able. The so-called schools of political
philosophy would, to a mind not already
trained to logical anil discriminating
thought and exporionco in tho practical
working ot affairs, bo more likely in most
instances to mislead than to teach truly.
Is it possible for a man, under ordi
nary ciscumstanccs, to succeed in political
lifo without manipulating caucauses and
conventions and entering into political
barcainsto secure political influence and to
control nominations and conventions!' I
Ibis in regard toelectivo places, practi
cally depends very much upon the condi
tions of society in tho particular commu
nity in which tho voting power is to make
the choice. If the majority (or m case
of existing divisions ol pirtieB,
a cousiderablu portion) of the voting
power bo ignorant, prejudice.! or vicious.
the probability of tho selection ol tho fittest
is naturally email, and the chance, of elec
tion of aiiy parly or of no party is nt the
minimum, ignorance ol public allairs is
not of itself so groat an evil as tho others;
for many honest ignorant persons are
unito wise enough to know that good gov
ernment is tho best for lliom, and to know
that tho best person to entrust with the
duty of securing good govornmeut aro tho
men wuomtney know to bo of high stand
ing for capacity aud uprightness. But a
community in which the people, or a
considerable number of them, are corrupt
is a bad caso indeed. Tin: statu or ciiy in
which tbo controlling votes aro for sale,
cither for ready mone y or to bo paid for
with places or legislative jobs is probably
worse for being under a republican form
ol government than if it wore deprived of
self-government entirely. Fortunately,
such cases aro not frequent; but when
they exist it is not e.isy to como to an
ollieo without using tho methods mimed
in your question. But even then, if the
honn-a citizens will persist, in spito of
party nominations, in voting against nil
candidates believed to bo bad men, the ovil
is likely to bo cured In time 1'aities and
caucauses nro indispensable mo:iii:i for
united cllbrt as well lor goo I citizens ns
bad ones; for succoss cannot bo attained
without a concentration of tho power of
1110:0 who ItiltiK aliko as to measures or
men. But in tho greater number of tho
states and communities of this country
real arid permanent ;.ueees in political
lifo docs not, I tbiuk, reqiiirts or admit
either manipulations or bargains, Tho
puoplo of r republic, (if wo aro to bavo
faith in thu vuluoof froo institution.) mu.-t
bo supposed to prefer capacity, honor.cau
dor and independence in their public acrv
ants rather than intriguo and solf-scoking;
aud, if go, tho Ion g run must prove here,
a3 in everything ulc. that honesty is tho
best polity.
I. What is the function of iho iiolitioian
or sta'.esiiiaii in n free republic like that
of America:' In what soumj is ho a teacher,
in what a representative, nnd in what a
leader of public sentiment;'
I think his function is as a citizen to
be informed as to what are the best meas
ure for tho public good and tho best men
to cQcctuato them, and on proper occasions
to givo his fellow-citizens tlio benefit of
his knowledge and experience. As a law
maker Orcxecntor ho ought tok now aud to
do much the satre thins. If ho be trnly
a politician and statesman, he must lo a
teacher in all that he says and does nliont
public all'airs. Ho is a representative in so
far as his views and actions are acknowl
edged to lie the exponents of a public
opinion already formed, and he is a loader
in so far as his character, his capacity and
bis propo.iod action command the confi
dence of his countrymen, and. indeed,
sometimes when his proposed action does
not; for he may be in advance of public
sentiment, or bo may see clearly ami have
the courage to du what at tho moment is
quite opposed to popular opinion ; and, if
tho event justifies him, ho has vindicated
bis titlo to all your question implies.
There is perhaps no ono thing so valuable
to the rigbt progress of civllizod society
as tho courage ol sincere individual opiu
ion ; and as it regards public affairs, the
mau who tries honestly to form an accu
rate conclusion, and bravely to maintain
and advance it, without counting the num
ber of his adversaries, will fulfil tbo best
mission of a citizen, and will he, whclhor
in public or privato station, tho true poli
tician, often Iho real statesman, tho best
teacher and the ablest leader.

Darwin's Diseases. For many years
tho late Mr. Darwin suffered with catarrh
al dyspepsia, and later from various irreg
ular manifestations of a gouty constitution,
such as "eczema, vasomotor nervo storms,
vortigo nnd other disorders of sensation."
For nearly a year before his death ho was
alllicted with angina pectoris a most
dreadfully painful disorder and his heart
and greater bloodvessels were undergoing
degeneration, It will ho a surpriso to
most peoplo to learn that ho was not what
would be called an indefatigable worker.
Ho never of lato years worked more than
three hours a day. and his success was
iluo to tho fact Ihat ho concentrated all his
powers of thought on ono subject.

How a Pi.AciiAM Man EvAni'i) the
Law. Tho Penchant correspondent of the
Lyndon Union tolls' tho following yarn
concerning a former citizen of that place
Gov. Mattocks: The govornor found
himself lato ono Saturday night in Guild
hall, forty miles from home. It was
against tlio law to travel on Sunday, ex
cept to and from church, and ns tho gov
ernor had miiiy enemies, ho knew that
should he violate the law, lie would be
called beforo the court. However, he
wanted to go home, and drove to Concord
where he stopped over night, and after an
eaily breakfast Sunday morning, bo re
sumed his journey towards Pcachain,
studying up his dei'enso for the suit as he
journeyed along. On arriving at Bnrnet,
a happy thought struck him and, on his
way out to Pcachani, he drove up to Rev.
Goodwiliic's church . at Barnot Center,
hitched his horse, and in sight of some
body's house.raisedtho latch of tho church
door. But it was locked there being no
meeting that. day. From there ho drove
on homo ami accomplished his object.
The next, day he w;u taken into the
presence of a Birnet justice to answer for
violating tlio Sunday law. Ills defense
was that having s-ciit a week with tho
unrighteous men of Iho Essex county bar,
ho fell tho need of church influence, and
as his friend Goodwillio was tho most
righteous man ho know, he desired to
placo himself within the sound of his voice
on tho Sabbath. Having traveled with
that end in view, and found the good
man's honso closed, he thought, boing
within a few miles of his own house,
that it would bo more scriptual to go homo
than to spend the rest of the day traveling
ones' to Concord to tano a week day start
for home Iho next morning. Tho plea
prevailed, fur the governor had his wit
nesses from tho house near Iho church, to
provo that ho tried to got into tlio church,
a point much needed, as ho was not in the
habit of going to church very often.

anywhere else, perhaps. But it moves.

Extradition proceedings havo boon com
An Inventive Cuank. Simon Phil
brook, now a rosidcut of Cleveland, )bio,
was a school boy a liiddeford,Me.,;;0 years
age. Ho claims to havo invented some of
tho most wonderful machines tho world
has ever seen. First among his "greatest
things on earth," says a Cleveland paper
is his drawbridge.which one bridge tender
can swing by simply attaching a rope from
a weight power to a pulley. Another ol his
inventions is a streot railroad car switch,
to switch trains going at any rato of speed
without delay, simply by touching a knob
in the platform with the foot. Then there
is a wonderful cir couplor, to couple all
kinds of cars by tho uso'of percussion cars.
You simply pull a string on the side ol
the car, and in an instant tho whole train,
bumps together and every car is coupled.
He has many other inventions of the
same practical sort. Ltwiston Journal.
Sai Drowning: Affaiii at Burling
ton. Burlington was the scene of anoth
er drowning accidenton Sunday aftornoon
whicli resulted in tbo death of Engene
Lalime, proprietor of the skating rink, and
a norrow escape for George Walkor. It
seems, according to the Free Press, that
Lalimo and Walker went out on tho lake
in ro w boat fitted up with a sail. A stiff
breeze was blowing, and the lako was
rough. The men had reached a point
about half or three-quarters of a mile be
yond tho brcakwator, southwest of the
city, whon a suddon gust of wind struck
the boat and broko the staple which hold
tho sail. For some reason they wero un
able to take in tho sail, but clung to it and
held it in position as best they could. In
a fow moments, however, a severer gust
struck the boat nnd overturned it, throw
ing tho unfortunate men into the water.
They succeeded in grasping tbo sido of
tho boat and wero thus kept afloat for a
timo; but the water was, of courso, deathly
cold, nnd their positions could not long be
A party of young mon had seen tho
accident from the battery, where they
wero walking; nnd they hastened down to
the lake shore, broko tho chain that held a
boat belonging to tho government, and
rowed as fast as possiblo to tho roscuo.
All this however, consumod precious timo,
and whon tho young men had attained a
point within a fow rods of the scene of
tho accident the unfortunate Lalime,
thoroughly benumbed and exhausted,
loosed his hold and sank to riso no more.
Walker was clinging to the overturned
boat with a death grip, and it required tho
combinod efforts of tho two men to loose
his hold. Ho was taken home, and it was
found that his mind was for a time ontiro
ly gono. At last accounts, however, ho
was in a comfortablo condition. Lalime
was about SO years old, nnd leaves a wife
and a two-ycars-old daughter. Tlio body
had not boon found at last accounts.

I nna trTastb fou Anomno. A charm
ing correspondent of Forest ami Stream
writes trnly : 1 f anglers aro not born, but
made, wo must insist upon a belief in
innato taste. We have seen a sturdy boy
contont to stand and dangle a cord with
naked hook by the hour along a brook
lot in which thero has never bocn any fish
at least wuuin tuo memory oi man.
Who has not seen tho hoy contont with
fishing in a pail of wator or in a pool
formed by a summer showor? Hid the
resomblauce ncvor striko vou, ruvancliuz
frieud, betweon these early manifestations
on the part of tho boy and thoso of his
sister with nor doll.'' Whence come thovr
Tlie stick and string are put into the boy's
hands, and he is told to fish. You say the
doll is placed in tho child's arms with
some like saving. Verv cood! Are the v
not apt? Hut sticks and strings aro com
mon playthings with the boy and can be
put to hundreds of uses in his cames. Yet
be ohooses this particular way, and that
too m a manner not the easiest or most
natural to his tender years. Is It not born
in his bone, sinew and spirit? Comes it
not down through a lino of generations
from the days whon, as Juvenal bai it,
" A chill cavern furnished a scanty dwell
ing and onclosed under a common shelter
the Are and household goods, the cattle
and the owners; when the world was new
nnd tho sky freshly creatod, and men, born
out of the riven oak or raouldod out of
clay, bad no parents," when men sought
existence from the forests and the waters?
