Political Future. — All intelligent
every department, and especially in 1
that presided over by Secretary |
Ikatwell, which is fset redeeming I
'
the country financially from the em
barrassment* lefo which she vAs 1
plnnged hy a few disappointed
efroniß office seekers, whose plaint
ive cries attracted a sufficient nnni
bw of sympathizing spirits to wage
w»r upon her and drive her to the
necessity of raising means for self
protection by the unusual and very
objectionable policy of imposing
upon her eiiizens burdensome taxa
tion, is waking the people up to s
resit*'ng sense of their condition
and the condition ot public affairs.
It is showing them who are the coun
try'» friends and who they are who j
Institute and carry out measures for
preserving her free institutions, and
when that is accomplished who they
are who take care that her honor is
not impeached and that she keeps
faith with her creditors.
The plan said to be recommend
ed by the Secretary of the Treasury !
to Congress for adoption, looking to
the resumption of specie payment
at an early day, while it will meet
with cursings *Rd the gnashing of
Detnncrstio teeth, because under
Radical rule the country will not go
to ruin as they have prophesied and
prayed, does not surprise any true
Mend of the Union, all of whom
have been looking for the happy is
sue of the cnrreaey problem, which
is now so near its realization. Onrt
thA plan is in working order of re
deeming the national bank paper
with greenbacks—assuming the coi -
tradiclcd dispatches to be true—and
some stimulus givento indue« flo iting
bank currency to seek redemption,
that psper will soon disappear, and
when it is announced that there are
three or four hundred millions in
the Trsasury, with which to ranine
specie payment, a paper dollar will
at once become equivalent to a dol
lar in gold, I'realise it will command
gold when presented to the Treasury
or its agencies, and It ia doubtful,
after the first excitement, whether
tbw paper wHI not be preferred to
the coin,on the score of convenience.
Shrewd financiers are of opinion
that two hundred millions as
a starter would be amply suffi
cient to redeem the national paper
as fast as it would be presented.
Democratic papers and politicians |
cannot cover up these facts and keep
the people in ignorance of them.
They may invent and circalate all
manner of Unreasonable and sense
lesa aterian ot Mr. and Mrs. Grant's
complicity with the speculations of
the gold room, but facie, flgnreeend
results speak louder than idle accu
sation*. * Th» eworn m onUtly state
ments of the Secretary are having
and avili continue to exereieo a aatu
lary influence over the politic* of
the present and future that all the
eiaharrs of pettifogger» and grovel
ling presort cannot counteract.

Tmr Bowk Waqon Wheel. Messrs.
Baol & Oarllon, of Boise City,
made* another improve
ment in tbeW pRent
ruing wagon wheel. The hub, with
this new improvement, is entsühn
three pieces ; the pipe or box fhat
works on the axle extendi the whole
i en gj[, 0 f n, r hub, being of the or
; nary sire of a pipe box at each
rnd( with a Hngr in tb « mifldl^.
Tl , a | ip on 0T( . r t!)U pipe arB tw0
iec tidn* of the hob, cast with mor
have
tire-tigbt
tises to receive the spokes. One uT
1 ptfC tj ong fit* on behind the
|
I
O'-her in front of the fringe on the
' pipe, the one behind being fastened
to its place, while the one in front
slides back and forth on the pipe.
The spokes beitig thus spread where
they enter the hub, in front and re».*
of the flange, and brongbt into a
trn# line where they enter the felloe,
are governed by a nut on the nozzle
of the pipe that strains the front
section back towards the flange,
thus tightening the rim by decreasing
the distance between the spokes in
ths front and rear sections and caus
ing them to protrude towsrds the
tire. The object a canting the hub
in three pieces ia to enable them,
when a pipe wears out, to replaça
it with a new one without disturbing
the balance of the wheel. This is
our understanding of the constmc
tion of this new wheel, which, al
though we bave not aren it, we re
gard aa a valuable discovery. There
appears at least to be suflicient use
ful novelty in the conception to
make it a valuable franchise to the
patentees, and if it ia not yet per
tect the minds that originated the
idea will be very likely to make
it so.

The great Suez Canal is finished ;
another avenue of trade and travel
between the Orient and the Occident
is completed and Ute ends ot the
earth are brought naarer together.
The completion of those two mighty
enterpr sea, tbe Atlantic and Pacific
.railroad and the Suez Canal, mirks
the year 18IÎ9 as that one of all the
six thousand that have gone like a
dream since the history of the world
began, preeminently the year ol
prugreaa and improvement in open
ing up highways for tbe natious to
travel.
On the Hth or November the Em

iterranean and with a fleet of a
hundred vessel» passed through the
canal to Suez on th* Red Sea. Te
dftoms wsre sung mingled with tls
Musseiman's prayer, and one of the
grandest celebrations took place
ever witnessed on this earth. Tbe

Wa see by the California papers
that ear old friend, Dr. T. T. C»bi
naas, of Siskiyou, wilt be a candidate
before the Legl»turc this winter for
the position of Resident Physician
at the Stockton Insane Asylum. The
Dr. can't read bis title* clear to a
position in a Lunatic Asylum as can
Dr. Reynolds, of San Franciaco,
who H urged Tor th* position because
he has been a Democrat for forty
yekra without equivocating, even
during tbe meet disgraceful history
of th* perty. Dr. Cabinas* wee e

was eur pride and pleeaure to puli

All the Court* of Nevada and
California ndjourned over one day
out of respect to the memory of the
late A. W. Baldwin. Nearly all the
Judges delivered eulogies from the
bench upon the life, character and
br.lliant talents of the deceased, the
most feeling, earnest and touching
of which, sn far as we have read
them, being that of Judge McKin
stry, of the County Court of San
Francisco county.
Esq., attorney of the Twelfth Dis
trict, also paid a glowing and able
tribute to many virtues, sterling in
tegrity and deep deiotion to prin
ciple of his brother in the profession.
The city counsels and fire companies
of Gold Hill and Virginia also held
meetings and p iased re-olution* of
condolence, as well as the Masonic
Fraternity in'many places. No man
tins died on the coast more generally
and sincerely lamented.

undirecel anil unrestrained by
principle, the presa becomes an in-
tolerable evil, and instead of en-
lightening depraves the public mind.
When truth i* to be told or pub-
lished, it should tie for a good end ;
not to irritate, but to convince ; not
to inflame bad p issions, but to sway
the judgment; not to gratify a per-
sonal spleen, but to subserve a pub-
lic good. While ttie free expression
of facts and opinions should be
everywhere 'encouraged, all good
citizens have a vital interest in fixing
the brand of infamy on falsehood,
whether spoken or published, from
wbatejer motive or whatever the
came or interest it may be designed
to subserve. The public can have
interest in tbe publication ot
scurrility and falsehood ; such ut-
terances can only be made hy bad
men in th* interest of themselves or
others who are worso .—Idaho States-
