WHY ?A?saniJpte (^;n:T.~~Wbilo
France hud *>rnss'ia "gvro\vl over tlio
Luxemburg bone, Austria keepj
quiet. Why? Not surely from ex?
haustion from her little war of last 1
summer? No. Tho blow, ?he re?
ceived then only' disclosed lier weak?
ness. The trouble is, Austria is about
bankrupt. She has been an enor?
mous borrower from h?rown people
and from foreign nations, mid inst end
of recuperating under thu temporary
shelter of new loans, ipho has only
piled moro and m?ro weight upon
her own head. Her bonds aro shunned
by Enropenu markets, save as lit food
for speculation iu times of continental
excitement. Her annual fiscal receipts
are nominally about $200,000,000, but
ber average deficit is about ?40,000,
000. Her large civil aud military
governmental expenses, her accumu?
lated interest on foreign and domes?
tic loans, hor hoavy dues in the de?
partment of land redemption, swell
the annual budget with ever-increas?
ing expenses. While tho heavy taxes
imposed upon her manufactures aro
crippling them, years of neglect in
tho rural districts have allowed her
agriculture to go to waste; miserable
roads, no canals or interior water
communication, and poor railways,
keep her provinces isolated aud use?
less to each other, so that, during the
Hungarian famine, a while ago, the
Bohemian grain harvests were wan?
tonly throwu open to the trampling
and devouring of cattle, being too
plentiful for possible use at home,
and Tillable to bo sent abroad for lock
of transportation. To crown all, thc
people have begun to refuse to pay
their taxes. Even in brilliant but
hectic Vienna, the tax arrears reach
ten and twelve per cent.
It is suggested in radical quarters,
that to secure a continuance of Re?
publican supremacy, Congress miiht
adopt tho Sumner plan, and force
universal negro enfranchisement on
nil tho States. Nothing else, ic is
urged, will prevent Maryland from
lapsing into Democratic rule, or a re?
petition of the recent Democratic
victory in Kentucky. Thc difficulty
of legislating with exclusive reference
to these States is admitted, and hence
thc plea for reconstructing the whole
North ns well ns tho whole South
upon the radical basis. Tu? move?
ment is wild as well as mischievous.
A mere act of Congress would bo fu?
tile for the purpose, and a constitu?
tional amendment would be of no
avail unless the States whose concur?
rence is essential to ita validity>nre
prepared to concede . impartial suf?
frage. If thc States ore so prepared,
tho amendment would be superfluous.
And if they aro not prepared of them?
selves to act, the amendment would
amount to nothing. In either case,
thc scheme is beset with difficulty.

Tho news from tho White House

the loyalty and self-respect of tho

victed of defrauding tho Government
by presenting false claims, has been,

A VIOLENT HAIL STOHM.-On Mon?
day, a severe hail storm, accompanied
by thunder and lightning, passed
over York County, Pennsylvania,
doing much damage to the crops.
The York Gazelle says:
"In this borough, many panes of
glass were broken by its. violence,
particularly those facing towards the
West, from which direction tho storm
came. We learn that abont seventy
large panes were broken in tho Court
House, the same number of colored
glass in the Presbyterian Church, a
considerable number in tho Gorman
Lutheran Church, and innumerable
others, in varions parts of tho town.
Animals caught in the storm became
terribly frightened, and in many
cases it was impossible to control
Among the tricks of Now York
legislators, tho correspondent of the
B?llalo Commercial mentions tho fact
that a bill was brought before the
Senate as having been passed in tho
House, when it had not been acted
on at all in that body. The speaker's
signature had been forged. Another
bill was stoleu from the clerk's desk,
in order to prevent its passage.
A taking young lady, in Cincinnati,

The New York SHU, of Tuesday,
gives us the following information
relative to this enterprise:
Within two years we may expect to
be iu direct communication with
France through the medium of n
cable extending from this city, tu
Brest. According to the terms of
the bill passed by the last L?gisla?
ture, the company will forfeit their,
grant if they fail to complete'ibo
work within the stipulated two years.
They are to have the exclusive right,
for a period of twenty years, to lay
telegraphic cables connecting Now
York with France, and it is stipulated
that the Stat*? shall have priority Of
privilege in the transmission of mes?
sages. It is to bo hoped that tho new
enterprise will provo successful. Tho
present cable is managed with tho
single purpose of enriching ita stock?
holders, and without regard for the
requirements of its patrons. Tho
rates arc so high that tho liuc is said
to bo unemployed three-fourths of
tho time, and yet, nt the recent meet?
ing of directors, it was decided not
to diminish the prices. Competition
is needed to bring this business down
to its legitimate level, and the pro?
posed lino will, therefore, bo of great
benelit in the way of securing lower
rates. Half a dozen lines across the
Atlantic would pay well and have
plenty of business if the charges
were only within reasonable bounds.
THE . REPUBLICAN PAUTY.-T-A New
York journal says thc causes that are
"disintegrating that heterogeneous
compouud known as tho Republican
party aro at work all over the coun?
try. But tho process is stow. When
the present financial difficulties reach
their height, tho rupture will be tho?
rough and complete. It will be on\y
lit and proper. Tho Republican party
had a mission, and fulfilled it. There
is no longer any occasion for it, and
it will' pass off thc stage of action.
Tho people have submitted to a deal
of tyranny during tlie last few years,
because they thought it necessary in
order to preserve the Union ?from
being torn asunder. Now that danger
is past, they sec no need for submis?
sion to undue restraint. Those who
suppose them, from their recent acts,
indifferent to personal freedom, labor
under a great mistake. Tho freest
nations of old had their dictators in
times of emergency; but when the
danger was past, the dictator was
obliged to surrender his extraordin?r}'
powers. So with the American peo?
ple. Tho day of absolute power in
the bauds of a few is passing away."

SUDDEN BLINDNESS.-A daughter
of Sheriff Dessosway, of Betlehem,
Pennsylvania, aged about ten years,
a few weeks since, while at school,
complained of paiu in her eyes, aud
asked permission to go home. Her
request was granted, but before
she reached her home, which was
about five hundred yards from the
school, she became totally blind.
Up to this timo all efforts to restore
her sight have proved fruitless.
A monster bird, of tho pelican

surement, held a little over half a
bushel of shelled corn.

A BOSTON OPERATOR.?-Tho? parti?
culars below of a recent failuro in
Boston are contninned in a special
from that city to the New York Times:
"A small earthquake in financial
circles disturbed tho equilibrium of
operators in State street and its vici?
nity to-day, occasioned by the failuro
of one of tho most extensive mani?
pulators iu Franklin, Humboldt,
Hancock, Huron, Copper, Falls,
Hecla, &o., in this city, and Corydon
in . New York. At about 3 o'clock,
this afternoon, Mr. John Leighton
was arrested on a process sued out by
New York parties, aud conveyed to
comfortable quarters, where ho will
bo confined, awaiting a requisition
from tho Governor of Now York. His
failuro is moderately estimated at
SI,ODO,OOO, ono house having a olaim
against him of near 6880,000, while
Iiis assets are inconsiderable. He
waa well known as one of tho most
dashing outside operators in the
financial arena of thc Hub. He was
afraid of nothing, and had thc nervo
and confidence of n lion, as bc was,
among the bears and bulls."
GREELEY, ON VILLIANS.-There aro
two sorts of villians who seem to us
deserving of special reprobation : 1.
Those who made money by fleecing
thc Government during tho Into civil
war, and whose crime aggravates
robbery by treason. 2. Those who
say they know where and by whom
such villainies were perpetrated, yet
have never denounced them to the
proper authorities, aud do not now
?cense them distinctly and by name.
A PETITION Fon THE DISARMING: or
BKOWNLGW'S BANDITS.-The Presi?

nished by resolution of Congress be

tho hands of unorganized mcu, and
if allowed in actual use, it is claimed
that civil war must result.
