We observe in a published upeech rnai
by "E. Windy WilHon" (ai ho in called
of Charleston, at Mooretield, Han
county, that ho conjure* up the horr
spectre of increased taxation, whereby '
ilftcr voters from MupportitiKCIarksbur
and cooly tell* the people that, oh a inn
ter of economy, they ought to vote fi
Charleston. At Charleston, according i
Windy, there in a house already prepa
ed. to be had for the mere occunanrv of i
while if the Capital is located at Clark
burg the State will be put to great e
peine. This in a pretty cheeky argtiuie:
to come from 11 man who spent half tl
term of the last Legislature iu schem
for getting the Capital away fro
Wheeling, where the very beat of accoi
modatioun for the State government lu

refreshing from the circumstance th
the State paid $30,000 for the une of tl

Mr. Albert Wells, of the Kiversi

Thompson, i? sincerely desirous of seei
the great labor problem now upon usi

Wella is one of thoso who look up

This good lady estimates that there t
now three million unemployed men

therefore oilers three premiums of $11
$75 and $30, in gold coin, for the b
newspaper articles relating to I
labor question, each article to be ab<
two thousand words in length, and
sent to the ollice of the Library Table, N
York, before the 1st of October. T
merits of the productions will be deck
by a committee appointed at the Soc

opportunity for men who have been p

IliiglunU Not to Intcrlcro lor I
I'roNont.
Our foreign news thU morning in
cates that the war feeling is not ramp
in the Hritish Cabinet. On the contra
the nnti-interferonco element is npj
most. This in the situation in the Cabi
despite the recent scarecrow article?
the London press. England is naturj
concerned by the easy succees of the I?
sians in crossing the Danube, but t
success aflords no casus belli. She is boi
to hold Rtill and let tho war h
Home logical termination. If she is
intluential enough with Turkey to
duce her to offer terras at this criti
period of her fortunes she ought no
| expect Russia to stop on the aouth bi
of the Danube to know what her pleas
may bo. The prospects are there!
that the war will ro on without interl
ence until theTurka fall hack from
Balkan mountain* toward* Constant!;
pie, juntas thejr now seem to be fall
away from the Danube.
While tho supposed purpose of I
Turkish commander to abandon theD;
ube and retreat to the mountains la up
, this lime only inferred, there are many [
strong reasons for believing that thin is '
__ what he will do or in already doing. Heii
already at a frightful disadvantage. Outw
numbered by at leant two to one, his
for troops poorly supplied, his subsistence
m and transportation utterly inadequate,
^ discouragement and revolution rampant
at Constantinople, the treasury bankrupt
and his cause without a real friend in Eu?
, rope, the outlook must bo to Abdul Her* Fu
im full of discouragement and gloom.
" lie began under the disadvantage of hav- Qr
j ing to spread his army along three hun*
f>* dred miles of river front, making a line
0j so weak that it could be pierced any*
where, and the southern shore is occupied A
ly by an invincible army before he could
r. collect forco enough to oppose it. That
?> the Turks will tight well individually, if mthe
opportunity comes, is more than
probable; but tho war has now reached a
. point at which no individual bravery
" can prevail aguinst superior numbers
^ discipline, equipment and resources. I
Civil Service Iteloriu. C
When the National Kepublic:in Con- ron
*>' vention met at Cincinnati and declared
to tliu world that Civil Service Reform pro
>r was a ureal miblic necessity. all the noli- Hilt
l<> tician* said (on the stump) that it was a ^n|
r* glorious plank in the platform; and when ^
l* tho President c:toie out in hi* memorable abo
fl" letter ol acceptance and formulated the the
*' declaration of the convention in faror-of j'
111 reform into M>mething practical in the
way of a promise, the same politician* wei
lJ still paid (on the stomp) that he had hit "Id
Ul the nail on the head. Ofcourse they hid ?ea
^ no idea, and, least ol all, no de*ire, thit j,je
he would ever carry out his letter and bio
make good hi* assurance* to the country. ?n<l
rt Political promises follow the rule, in the ^
^ estimation of policians, of lover's prom- PCj,
ises; they are made to be broken. And wa?
because the President i* not a politician, C.
but an honest man, and because he look
the party at its word, and has undertaken ^
-' to redeem it* pledge* to the world, he in a I

^ land, and they are showing *ign* of Uia^
affection. For instance, there are rumors j
jp as to what the Cameron* will do this fall ,,lrl
J in Pennsylvania, and it i* even intimated cen
thai 1'ennsyivama ami unio win go Dem- "k
ocratic in October by reason of the coolness
of certain soreheads. To this threat ()j ^
the President dimply responds: "All jug
right, let them go Democratic. That of j
your business, not mine." This in the fwc
'* substance of hi<< reply an given in a dis"
patch to yesterday's Cincinnati CSazette. cou
Wo quote the whole dispatch, as follows : bio

M heard him express himself since the man- 1101

Southern policy is a fact, and he feels ll)S
