Kaltorlal Pararrafbi. How bit that the Telegraph Repub lican to the back-bone as it is tries to And some excuse for the recent escapade of the ex-Confederate President Jeff. Davis? Those who desire a paper devoted to the exposition of the principles of spirit ualism cannot do better than subscribe for the Banner of Light published at Bos ton, Mass. We enjoyed the pleasure of a call from Colonel F. Montgomery, of the Logan Sepublican, yesterday afternoon. The Colonel is hale and hearty, and will al ways receive the welcome his genial tem per deserves. There is a rule among newspaper pub lishers which has become so generally observed that we supposed every; one knew of its existence and that is . tliat anonymous communications are at once thrown into the waste-paper basket., The name of the author is not required for publication but as an evidence of good faith. We have now on hand a number of communications which we should be glad to purchase if the authors would only furnish us with their names.) In the last number of the Journal we suggested the advisability of the estab lishment of an effective police . force in our place. The occurrances upon State street, on Monday last fully illustrated the necessity of such action, A burly, bloated ruffian by the name of Lindsey wuu Keeps a low groggery in mis vicini- 1 were as large as couia possioiy ne accom ty a man whose personal habits and es- I modated, and filled both the Tabernacle place comes out in broad daylight npon one of our principal business streets and 1 not onlv encniirmw .ww w w I r .. o more humane I crowd from separating the poor besotted wretches while not an officer is to be found to put a stop to the disgraceful tM-iwin .t. ... I a led a natural death. We do not, pre- j tend to say where the blame may rest I but aurelv the tor thomwiv I fnjmpnf 1 uur neighbor of the Telegraph, has uurewiuu peculiar laeas as to the re quirements of politeness. For our part we fail to see anything ridiculous in the custom or raising one's hat to a lady or I any correimor.rlir.o- nrnnrit t ... forming a like ceremony with her chig non. For a gentleman to raise his hat is merely an expression of that respect which is due to the sex as such and even the modern isms of woman's rights and Stanton-Livennore-Woodhall-Clafiin movements can afford no good excuse to any true gentleman for omitting it. ' At tention to and consideration for woman are results of civilization, and grows with the advancement and developemeat of education and religion. No one iwho has the memory of a mother or a sister to prompt him can fail to observe even uicwaatoi uieui. jaucn less ought a public newspaper to in any way encour age the tendency already too strongly marxea among the rising generation to Ignore or ridicule those observances which fl.m ftlilr tho tMf ftf trttA k.wi;v.

They are found in every com-1 munity and as a general thing are impar tial in their inflictions treating all klike, .out pernaps me most unbearable place in which to meet them is the printing office.

FOUTICAI. FROPHKME!). The elements that enter into the i pres ent state campaign have now become sufficiently developed to enable One to venture something more than mere con jecture as to the probable results of the October electious. The two parties have fairly placed themselves hefnr thA - - . . r peopleandthe chances for success can be estimated with a fair deirree of cer- talnty. The first and most apparent fact is the utter failure of the so-called 'new- jjauv4u 9 T ai .1 . 1 1 uimc. in uio aeauioi jir vauan- dingham the Democratic party lost the only man who would have been able to , xaUy the rank and file of that party Into oraer under the Incongruous posidon which he succeeded in bringing them into. This is plainly apparent from the lact tnat tne iJemocratic speakers either peedily desert the new doctrine or else leave it entirely out of their considera- tlnn Th,,. v.. .i., .- , , -. .unuiKin vapiuii jur. vairir, . .. . z . . i .. . . nuiguwu maynave noped to make through the defection of weak-kneed Hepubllcans, is certainly lost since his ri4f)i wuucw MC Ol u com- petent leader. In addition, the standard Dearer selected by the democracy has proven himself to be, in a most remark able degree, weak and incapable. His 'presence excites no personal enthusiasm bis speeches advance no new princi ples his doctrines attract no new sup- port and taken all in all Col. Mc Cook may be said to be a weight and hindrance rather than a help to the Ohio Democra- cy. on the other hand, the republican candidate, General Noyes, is eloquent and possesee, besides, the personal influ ence and character calculated' to draw to ma support, not only the entire re- puoucan partybut many of theoppo- siteaswell. In view of the position ta- ken tmn .T.F-iL.CT B,.ui ciiiuera- " wuuiuates put lorwarq by toem mere can be but little question as -nriti. nmi et. With regard, however, to the legisla- turethe chances are more evenly divided and it is certain that .loan o,i canvass are necessary to secure a major! ty for the Bepublicans in that body. Ilain ilton county, which holds the balance of power has become involved in local con travenes which dissipate even the large Republican majority of 1870. The House will consist of 105 members, thus making J53 necessary to a majority. The Senate -will consist of 36 members of whom it will be necessary to elect 19 in order to secure a majority. A very careful esti mate made by the Columbus Statesman howe that to secure a majority it will lie necessary for the Bepublicans to carry one doubtful district for the Senate and our for 4&e House. Thus while .the tgeneral out-look Is decidedly in favor of the'Bepubltcans, t yet shows the neces sity Cor steady work and untiring labor. "When thieves fall out then honest men get their dues" Atiast there is some chance for Xew York. ? The Times, hav ing procnred authentic copies of the ac counts in the comptroller's office has come out in a. grand expose of those Tammany frauds which have lor so long a time enriched a few fortunate leaders at the expense of the public. Tam many has been completely demoralized by tuU sudden infusion of light aud the city government bids fair to undergo an Auge:ui cleansing. At all events the overhauling which the rotten adminis tration is now undergoing cannot fail to have a marked effect upon the ap proaching elections. The shameless plundering ban bcefl so gro.-w, as shown by these published accounts that even suc,n WV3&KyJ2!L find no excuse for the professional par asites wild ' HaVi ' for so long fed upon ti3 public's financial life.

A. Oaket Halt,, Mayor. R. D. Connolly, Comptroller. Horace Oreely has addressed a letter to the thtlden Am denning Ids views upon the woman question, saying, while he does not deny that persistent and flagi tious adultery by the husband or wife af fords good grounds tor a divorce, a tran sient Infidelity to the marriage vows un i der the influence of passions prompted by wine or other unnatural excitement should not, if repented, be adequate rea sons for a divorce. The doctrine of re marriage in ' those widowed by death should be governed bv circumstances, in tne main wnere couples are nappiiy milted, it will be better In the higher life if neither married the second time on this planet. The main cause of his hostility to woman suarage is one to nis desire to preserve the indissolubility of the marriage tie, and his conversion 10 the present movement for woman suf frage is morally impossible on that ac count. He has written but little of what has appeared in the Tribune, ed itorially, on this subject for the last ten years, He concludes by saying : "1 Deiieve nut iviiintrvmpn nrw lnflhp tATOU for having discovered perhaps I should say invented me as a possible though most improbable candidate for the Presi- dencv.

MASSACHUSETTS, On the 9th ult. the Labor Reform State Central Committee met to determine the time and place of holding a state conven tion. A lengthv discsuslon followed, in which Wendell Phillips participated, and advised the committees to wait until the ofhea parties had acted.

A letter from Albion, Wisconsin, savs, that on the 31st nlt.i a terrible hail storm prevailed in that vicinity on the previous day. ' Great hail stones rained down in a tremendous shower, some of them being as large as hen's eerss. Some reiiort them two and a half inches through. In places the ground was covered suthciently to run sleighs.

The Montana Herald of July 27th con tains an account of a formidable Indian raid in Gallatin Valley. ' Two men named James Nixon and George Shep perd, were killed and between two or three hundred head of stock and horses run oft". Two companies of cavalry under Captain Hall and Captain Morton, from Fort Ellis, and some fifty citizens started in pursuit. Great excitement prevailed.

The Indians are sup posed to belong to a band of iSioux, un der Sitting Bull, the main body of which is camped between x enow stone and Powder rivers.

Thiers, to the surprise of many of the deputies, and amid much excitement. spoke in terms ot vigorous opposition to the report.. He said the amount of claims which it would impose upon the republic could not possibly be less tha one million , trancs, a sum wnicn tne treasury was quite unable to pay. He could not give his consent to the plan of the committee, and. was only willing to afford relief to the people of the invaded departments who were actually in need 1 he bill to impose a tax on the incomes of natives and resident foreigners came up and gave rise to an animated debate No action ,was taken. The Assembly also considered a bill to indemnity citi zens lor loss of property during the tier man invasion. Thiers spoke several times and was frequently interrupted. He was visibly affected . and reproached the members. He declared that he was willing to relieve, but not , indemnify, those who had suffered during the war. Without disposing of the bill the Cham ber adjourned until Tuesday. . On Wednesday' Thiers informed the Delegate Secretary' of the Lower Cali fornia Immigration.' Company of his in tention of , presenting to the Assembly the proposals of that company to trans port fourteen thousand Communists to the Lower California Colon y, these to be selected from the least guilty. The ru mors, that the government contemplated a general amnesty to .Communists,, and that the trials Were postponed to this end, have been exploded by the assem bling of the courts. The period of the arraignment of Rocliefort is yet un known, Several major , courts-martial and the General Court formally opened their sessions Thursday. Gen. .Kossel and the members of. the Commune and the Central Committee were arraigned before separate courts. The rank and file of the insurgent forces will lie ar raigned before the latter court to the number of eighteen at a time. Gen. Rossel, from protracted imprisonment, has been greatly reduced in body and spirits. During the trial witnesses tes tified that they saw Ferre release , con victs and give them arms. Abbe Deri said he had served twenty five years as a missionary among the savages, and never witnessed atrocities equal to those perpetrated by the Com munists. He stated that among the members of the court martial held by the insurgents in , the Roquette prison there were boys of the age of seventeen. . The accused, Assi, boastfully admitted the share he "had taken in the executions of captives, and defended them on the ground that they were justified by law ; retaliation was resorted to by all civil ized nations in time of war. The extra ordinary statements of some of the wit nesses and the audacity of the accused caused frequent scenes of excitement in the court roonij which was crowded to 'suffocation, and 'the president of the court was obliged to call in the officers several times to enforce order during the session.' " ! ' " The latest advices say that the depu ties of the Left Centre in the Assembly are negotiating with those Of the Right for prolonging the power of M. Thiers for a period of three years. The Left Centre, or moderate Republicans, .have refused to concur in M. Gambetta's re quest for a joint party, to be composed of the moderate Republican radical par ties in .the Assembly, and to be placed under the leadership of Ganibetta. This refusal has had the. effect of further re ducing the radical majority in the As sembly, rendering its influence still weaker; The hopes of Gamhetta for ob taining the leadership of the party are now almost lost. It is rumored that M. Jules Simon has presented his resignation to President Thiers as Minister of Public Instruction. The clergy and teachers are opposed to him, and have been laboring to secure his removal; the former because of his alleged free-thinking tenets, -and the latter on aecount of his reduction of the salaries of professors. His resignation will remove the last constituent of the Provisional Government of September! and will be a direct concession to the clerical faction of the Assembly. Advices from Algeria say that the in surrection has liecn routed and Moned dembet has been subdued. ',' Revolts, however, continue. The province of Constantine wants the Eastern three de partments of which Algeria is conqioscd. Numerous murders are still committed by the rebels. A riot has occurred at Polignnc, in the department of Jura, between the Ger man garrison and the citizens, arising from the execution of a German subject. Twenty citizens were shot, and the Ger mans threatened to burn the town. Or der was, however, restored. The minor court-martial assembled here to-day.

A large force ol jiolice were held in readiness. 1 he procession was lonneti with Smyth, Sullivan and Nolan at the head of five hundred men, wearing the flrreen. They arrived, mounted the mo- n anient, and oin-ned the meeting. The Superintendent of Police advanced, the people groaned and Inssed at the Suiier- iiifenileiit, who showed a dcleriiiiiiation to break up themeetins. He was knock ed down, and then the police rushed up and a fearful fight ensued. The officers drew their staves and felled people by scores. The conflict liecame hotter, stones were thrown, sticks were plied by the ' mob, women and children were trampled under foot. The riot lasted half an hour. Forty-seven person were known to have een'wounded,aiid many seriously. Smyth, Sullivan and Nolan were badly hurt. Many of the )oliee received bruises. There was great ex- itement throughout the city, and the police were attacked l-ejieattillj-, but eventually order was restored. The leaders of the meeting are to be prose cuted. During the riot the military were prepared hut were not called out The lighting extended the entire length of the quay. Every window showing a flag in honor ot loyalty was smashed A most bitter teeling exists against tne Prince of Wales on account of the brutal conduct of the police in the contest in Pho?nix Park. It is probably that an other demonstration will lie attempted Organized demonstrations in favor of amnesty will be made on every occasion, The wrath of the people concentrates upon the Prince of AVales. No feeling is manifested against the others, the embittered feeling against the Prince is on account of his refusal to intercede for the pardon of the imprisoned i enians, The Amnesty Committee have issued an address vigorously denouncing the ac tion of the police as unprovoked and un justifiable, and declaring that the meet ing was attacked because ot its democra cy and sympathy with the captives, The press warmly assau the authorities. The Xation and the Irishman, the jour nals edited by Byrne and Sullivan, who were beaten by the police, demand that the Irish members m Parliament secur an investigation of the culpability of the Dublin authorities. The departure of the royal parry was made amid as chil ling demonstrations as were manifested noon their arrival. They were hissed from the Viceregal Palace to the station but no other demonstration ocenrred Mr. Smyth, the organizer of the meeti ng. who was terribly beaten by the ponce has written a letter to the Dublin autho rities, demanding an immediate inquiry into the causes oC the collision, and the action of the police. The Orangemen aud the Catholics are preparing for a riot at Londonderry on the 12th of August, The military of that city are held in readiness and rein forcements have been dispatched by the government to meet the threatened emer Kpncy, Envlaud. The excitement regarding the Dublin riot is marked in intensity. It is ru mored that the radicals here, under the leadership of Mr. Odger, contemplate another open-air meeting in Hyde Park, to express sympathy for tli victims of the attack by the Dublin police, basing their action upon the right of the people to assemble peaceably together. Peti tions will also be presented in Parlia ment demanding an investigation. The royal party have returned from Dublin, having traveled by special trains. The Marquis and Marchioness of Lorn will accompany the Queen to Scotland on a visit to the parents of the Marquis. A tour through Scotland will precede this visit. lt is rumored that Napoleon, the Em press Eugenie an the Prince Imperial will shortly visit Belgium, after which they locate permanently in Switzerland. in the House oi commons on t uesuay evening Sir Charles Bowyer Adderly, member from North Stalibr.ishire, made a speech of some length in denunciation of the Treaty of Washington. He said that in that instrument England had made a vast concession in favor of peace, upon the questions of the fisheries and Alabama claims. England was clearly iu the right in the attitude she formerly held on those subjects, ail yet that posi tion had been yielded and America in demnified. Sir Charles concluded by vigorously condemning the form of ar bitration provided lor in the treaty, , Sir Eaudall Palmer, member for Rieh- niOllU, IOIIOWeu ill ui;ifiu-r Ul uir urail The next, day tliere. was a severe en counter in that body between the leaders of the -Tory and Liberal parties. D'Israeli savagely - charged Gladstone with bad leadership, both in the House and his party; with wasting mauy weeks on a subiect subsequently aoanuoneo: with needlessly invoking royal preroga tives, and with postponing important and even .vital legislation. Mr. Glad stone retorted that D'Israeli's so-called facts were but the offspring of his imagi nation and lingual powers, and that the lost time which D'Israeli complained of was due to the resistance ot the 'lories to the electoral reform. Sir John Gray, member of Parliament for Kilkenny, gave notice of his intention to call the attention of the House of Commons on Friday to the subject of the riots which occurred in Dublin on Sunday last. Mr. Gladstone implored the House to pass the ballot bill forthwith. Violent per sonal and partisan debate followed, after which Mr. Forster summoned for the bill as one demanded by the people. The lull was .passed. Three hundred wormen employed in the coal pits of Norfolkshirehave sti nek in consequence ol receiving their pay only fonii ihtly. A struggle is ex- peered. Scotland. On the 9th inst. the centennial cele bration In honor of Sir Walter Scott, took place in Edinbnrg. An account ol that date says 'to-day has been a general hol iday arid the city is vet so alive with fes tivities that the streets are impassible. It is thought that a quarter of a million of strangers are in the town. Scotch airs are chimed by the bells at all the churches aud salutes fired at day light, noon and sunset in various parts of the city. The celebration, inaugurated by the Centenary Committee of the city council and the general public, consist: of a banquet in the Corn Exchange, a loan exhibition and public procession The procession, which was of immense leugth, started at noon accompanied bv bands dressed to represent characters in Scott's novels, and marched through the principal streets of the city. The monu ments were festooned with flowers. The American flag and the motto of the Scott family, 'Watch well,' were everywhere displayed. The Earl of Dalkeith, eldest son of Duke Buecleugh, the head of the Scott family, presided at Ihe banquet, which was set down to at six o clock p. m iu an immense building, which, like all the rest of the city, was decorated with flags and portraits, and aoatetl one thous and guests. Earl Dalkeith forwarded from the banquet hall various compli mentary messnges to America and else where throughout the world, to which many complimentary replies were re ceived. . The races took place in the afternoon for the Waverly handicap centenary gift and AblKtlsford goblet. All Ihe hon ored Scotch games were also played and IKirticipatcd iu by many athletes of the coH!!t!'Vt At the theatres the plays for several days will lm exclusively Scotch.

The London conference of delegates from the German speaking branches of -the Catholic church was held at Heidle- berg on Sunday. They represented the German Duchies and Kingdoms, German provinces of Austria, and German Can tons of Switzerland. The object was to discuss the elections of Germany to the Holy See, and to adopt measures to undo what has been accomplished by tne victo ry of ultra montaneism in the CEcunieni- al ( 'ouncil at Rome. It is contended by some that the dogma of infallibility was ii revolutionized attitude ot the Holy Father to his spiritual subjects, and that the revival of the old state of a Hairs is imperatively called for. A committee was apiHiinted to prepare a new consti tution for the church. They were instruct ed to guide themselves by the principle established hy the council oi i onstance in 1814. There was some devision of opinion on the jMirt. of delegates on the o nest ion ol permanency oi tne pope. Some appeared disposed to sever all con nection with the church ol Koine anu organize a purely national txerman church. The committee will report the new constitution at a further session to be held next September. A Herald correspondent writing irom Rome says the Prussian occupation of France is every day rendering the situa tion more unpleasant. Strife and blood shed between a small number of German and French people are frequent, and murders of the Prussian private soldiers who have taken the place render the Prussian soldiers more harsh and mi- bittered in feeling. The French govern ment is said to have sent word to Bis- mark, Von Moltke and Dewltt upon the possibility of restraining the population from being unduly oppressed and ty- rauically treated. Some Prussian com manders drank to excess and encouraged the conduct of the men in using fire arms upon a small provocation, and if many of these troubles continued tne settlement of the War Indemnity ques tion would lie difficult. A Prussian offi cer iu conversation said the French people should be more conciliated, and that all Southern Germans feel an exas perating olicy would threaten danger to the new Empire. The committee of the Berlin exchange has refused to allow the quotations of the New York city loan to appear in the official stock list. Suth America, At the city of Mexico the permanent deputation of Congress finished counting the electoral vote for President on the 27th. The following is the result: Diaz 1.982. Juarez 1.963. Lerdo 1,366. There being no choice according to the consti tution, the election goes to Congress, where, if a coalition of the opponents of Juarez is ettected, a majority will be against him. An attempt will be made to unite the opponents on Diaz. The permanent deputation are known to be hostile to Juarez. The enemies of Jua rez report that he proposes to bribe doubtful congressmen, and imprison others before they can reach the capital, On the other hand, the Diario, the offical organ of the government, declares that Juarez has a majority.over all competi tors. In this conflict ol authority and direct contradiction, it is impossible to decide which is actually elected. The States of Puebla, Oxrea, and San Luis Potosi threaten to revolt, and the pros pects of the country are gloomy. Bevo- lntion has begun in Tabus county. The Vos uu Mexico has a Ditter article against Protestants. It. points to the appear ance of certain crimes as concerned with the introduction of evils produced by religious divisions. The same journal calls for the restriction ot sunrage. Switzerland A dispatch dated at Berne on the 9th inst.. states that the French minister finance has paid to the Swiss Govern inent five million of Francs for the maintenance of the army of Bourbaki while it was in that country. Payments win be continued by the French treasury at the rate of a million francs fortnightly until the entire indebtedness is liqui dated. An order has been given that all French material of war held in Switzer land be returned. Russia. ' The news from this country are very vague. The few dispatches that come to hand show that the political indications continue to be exciting. A late tele gram says that the proposed conference between the Czar Alexander and the Austrian Emperor Francis Joseph, has been abandoned. Gen. Gynla, the eminent Austrian commander, will visit Saint Petersburg as a special envoy on behall ot the Ji.ni- peror. Spain. The Imperial newspaper denies any intention ol the government to impose tax upon the Spanish bonds held by per sons outside the kingdom. Four newly discovered accomplices in the assassina tion of Marshal Prim have been sum moned to trial. Among them is an aid de camp of the Duke de Moutpensier The Duke himself has been summoned as a witness.
