ion of the qualifications of a candidate
for office is rightly held to constitute
trca-son to party ami country, what be
comes of that boasted political freedom
of which we have always heard and read
go much, and upon which every Amer
ican has prided himself a being the pal
ladium of political liberty ?
Ik it is impossible for. men who have
once been divided in sentiment and
have belonged to opposing political or
ganizations to ever come together again
and work in unison when agreeing upon
new issues in other words, if party or
ganizatiou is to be held superior to eve

Will our neighbors be kind enough to
toll the good people of this vicinity where
they got their information upon which
the above item is based. We have been
unable to find any such in the daily re
ports from Columbus, and not having
.tha experience of our cotemporary
ask tho question in order that we may
learn a new lesson In journalistic enter
prise. Wrra the approach of spring there
come to us ominous rumors whose warn
ing should not be disregarded. ' The in
creased .mortality reports show that the
dread epidemics of last year have only
been checked, not stopped, in their
course, by the winter's cold, and con
vincingly prove that no sanitary precau
tions can be neglected during the com
ing season. Among the most prominent
of preventives Is cleanliness, and thus,
that whiclr at nil times should be a
a pleasant duty, becomes an Imperative
necessity. During the warm, damp days
of SDring and early summer, no more
prolific breeder of disease cau be found
than the miasma generating piles of gar
bage and refuse matter that have accu
mulated in alleys and around dwellings
during the winter mouths, and which
are toooftcn allowed to remain iineared"
for at this season of t he year. Now Is
the proper time, and to each individual
belongs the duty, of seeing that this mat-
is prop erly attended to.
A few weeks since, in commenting
upon the remarkable increase of crime
in this eountry, we suggested that an ex
planation of the phenomenon might be
found in the fact of too great laxity in
the infliction of punishment, aud in tbe
delays which too often are evolved troin
the intricacies of the law for the. purpose
of shielding a criminal from the sentence
his acts may have deserved. Since
writing the article, we notice that the
same subject has been attracting consid
erable ait.'ntion among our Canadian
neighbors, and that they, having expe-
rcnecd the same phenomenon, have ar
rived at the same conclusions in regard
to its cause. In ai article published in
one of their papers upon this subject, the
writer claims that, with them, as wit-1
tts, "punishment for offenses less than
capital is not sufficiently severe, beside
the additional drawback of affording con
stant hope of evasion." 1 he same wri
ter then goes on to say that " m many
rates the prisons afford homes as com
fortable as many of their inmates pre
viously had," and that "except for the
deprivation of liberty, a quiet prisoner
has little to complain of." With them
however, tho recognition of the evil has
been followed by an attempt at remedy
and they have begun the trial of flog-
irlnff as an addition to confinement in
certain cases. The first practical exper
iment in this new direction was the case
of a young man, under sentence for out
rage on a female, who was whipped in
the presence of all the male inmates of
the prison at Toronto, and it is said that
those who witnessed the occurrence are
hopeful of its good effect upon the crim
inal classes. While flogging looks like
going, back to dark-age cruelty, yet it
must be confessed that we need some
thing to operate as a more efficient check
upon these inclined to crime, than an
afforded, at present, by our laws.

Grumblers and fcult-linders are already

non-working characteristics of the present

who send in so many petitions as to loav
no limn for graver matters. Partisan Echo
Paraphrased.
Judicious praise is pleasing, but we ap
prehend that there Is a higher sphere of
journalism than that which leads to pel
petual and fulsome flattery, either of per
sons or parties. Criticism, when fair and
candid, is not by any means to be. classed
with captious fault-finding or groundless
grumbling, and the efforts too frequently
made by writers for the press to defend
acts for which no defence ought ever to
he attempted, simply because done- by
ome party or clique, often produces a
contempt .not only for that particular
writer, but even for the entire profca
nion. "When the press compromises
truth it ceases to be tho guardian of
liberty," and no greater compromise can
be imagined than the abandonment of im
partial independence to don the courtier's
livery.
That the Legislature has received an
Immense number of petitions during the
present session, no one can deny; but to
find In this fact an excuse for the neg
lect of legitimate work, requires a far
subtler power of reasoning than most
men possess. We hardly hnagino that it
would be considered a perfectly satlsfac-

There was an appropriateness in the
transmission of the news of the death of
Professor Morse, by means of the inven
tion for which the world will ever be his
debtor. On Friday last he, who realized
Shakespeare's conception, aud "put a
Girdle iroimd the Karth in -forty min
utes." died in New York at the age of
SI, and within an hour the fact was
known to nearly every nation on the
earth.
In common with most other great in
ventions the telegraph has been in some
measure, a growth, bnt the world has re
cognized Professor Morse as at least the
contributor of the greatest share of the
origination, and the one successful pro
moter of it realization. In less than
thirty years his valuable invention has
completely revolutionized journal
ism and effected vast changes in all the
principal transactions of the world. , j
April 27, 1791, within sight of Bunker
Hill, Samuel Finlev Breese Morse was i
i
boru. lie was the son of Rev. Jcdediah
Morse, D.D., pastor of the First Congre-
gational Church, and author of that
many-volumed eerie of text books from
which the passing generation studied
geography. In 1S10 he graduated from
Yale College, in company with Gover
nor Ellsworth, President Hasbrouck of
Rutgers, Prof. Chauncy.A. Goodrich,
Prof. Ebenezer Kellogg and other dis
tinguished men. Ills first bent was to-
ard engineering, but immediately af
ter graduation he decided upon the life
f an artist ;' so went to England with
Washington Allstoniu 1811, becoming
then a pupil of Benjamin West.
In 1820 he exhibited at the Royal
Academy his "Dying Hercules, and
in May of that year a plaster model of
the same, which he had made in prepar
ing for the pic ture, won t he gold medal
of the London Adelnhia Society of
Arts. In 1815, he returned, settling in
Boston, afterward going to New Hamp
shire and getting $15 per head for por
traits. From here, In 1822, he went to
KewYork. It was In 1826, that the Na
tional Academy of Design was formed,
growing out ot a .drawing association
started in 1824. Mr. Morse taking an ac
tive part in tbe organization, and lie-
ing elected its first president. This po
sition he be held for sixteen years.
In 1820 he started ngaiu for Europe,
stayii.g three years. While in Paris he
painted n picture of one of the Ixmvre
galleries, copying the ch.etiy jiotnM
paintings on the walls in miniature
His election to the chair of the literature
of the arts of design in the University of
New York recalled him, and in October,
18:12, he sailed from Havre in the packet
hip Sully. There was the birth place of
the .Morse electric telegraph.
The professor had been much in
terested in eleotre-niegnctism, and had
been wont to discuss the new discovery
much, with his friend, Prof. J. F. Dan
Dr. Charles S. .Tackson described a late
Paris experiment, in which electrity had
been transmitted through a long length
of wire. Said Morse: "If that is so.
see no reason why messages may not be
instantaneously transmitted by elec
tricity." Ho went to work at the idea.
and before tho ship reached shove, had
virtually invented his telegraph, and
sketched upon paper the essential fea
tures of the transmitting and recording
apparatus
In 1835 he .completed a rude apparatus
all made by himself, with an experi
mental wire, pf half a mile around
room, but this oulv transmitted m one
direction. By 1837 he had ready an im
proved apparatus, which he exhibited at
one of the rooms of the University. This
year he went to Washington, filed his
caveat, and asked for a Congressional
appropriation for a line thence to . Bal
timore. . The session passed without ac-
tory explanation to
liberate absence of thfl members from
their seats, even if accepted as a reason
why nothing was done when there. The
"press of petitions" would not account
tion, and he went abroad. England re
fused him a patent, Wheatstonc having
in the meantime got to work. In France
he obtained a brevet d'invention. But he
met with little encouragement abroad,
aud came back to struggle through pov
erty and ridicule for four long years.
Session after session he persevered. His
bill was amended by Congressional wits
to include experiments iu mesmerism
and Millerism, the chair refusing to rule
out the absurd amendment on t!c plea
that "it would require a scientific nnaly-.
sis to determine how far the magnetism
of mesmerism was analogous to that to
be employed in the telegraphs."- At last
came the close of the session of '43. On
the evening of March 3, the . Professor
gave up in despair, returned to his hotel
" broken in spirit and bankrupt iu
purse," to start for New York next day.
"At the midnight hour of the expiring
session," by a vote of 89 to 83, the bill
was passed, and in the morning the in
ventor knew the dawn which follows the
darkest hour.
But there wore more difficulties. The
first plan was of burying the wires in
lead pipes. Ezra Cornell devised a ms
chine, drawn by oxen, which opened
the trench, laid the pipe, and closed it
again; but the expense was great and
the plan failed otherwise. It is said
Cornell saved him confession of failure
by "accidentally on purpose" smashing
up the machine against a rock. Only
$7,000. of the appropriation then re
mained: but Cornell snggested the use
of pole?, and on the 27th May, 1844,
"What hifth God wrought J"' flashed
nraise and victory from Baltimore to
Washington. The: first information
"Iven by the telegraph to the public
was that of the nomination of James K
Polk for the presidency by the Baltimore
Convention.
In 1842 the first submarine cable wan
laid bv him across New York harbor
winning the gold mednl of the American
institute. Mr. Morse's letter to the Secretary-
of the Treasury, 10th of August,
l43,"contained tbe first' suggestion - of
the Atlantic telegraph. Honors were
poured lo upon him. In JS51 a conven
tion to select nu uniform sys'em for all
Germany adopted bis; in 1857 tbe repre
sentatives of the chief European pow
ers, assembled at Paris, presented him
with 400,000 francs on account of bi in
vention. Yale made him a doctor of
laws. France enrolled him In her Le
gion of Honor, Austria, the German
Mates, Denmark, Turkey, gave him of
their highest honors. His fame follow
ed the wires till the globe was girdled.
Since then he has been growing into
a ripe old age, dividing his time between
Now York and his place on the Hudson,

Thk Senate Jiesume for the week end-
ing April 2. On Wednesday, during the
morning hour, a few bills were intro
duced aud a short discussion of the St
Croix and Beytlcld i tail road bill was
had. At the exniratiou of the mornin
hour the bill went over, and the House
bill to repeal the duty on tea and coffee
came up. The balance of the day was
spent- in. discussing its provisions and in
voting upon the various amendments
proposed without reaching any action
however, tbe Senate finally adjourned
On Thursday the bill was again taken
up and its consideration occupied the en
tire day, Numerous amendments were
offered and promptly rejected,' 'd the
entire debate was conducted in a lively
manner. -A few amendments were fina
ly adopted aud the bill was then passed

Messrs. IJorcinan, Hamlin, rreunghuv

the Senate may propose or concur with
amendments, as in other bills. The right
thus reserved to the House would cease
to be of any value if the Senate could,
under the form of amendment, origin
ate everything of value or importance m
a revenue bill. Tbe substitute of the
Senate changed entirely the character of
the House bill, which was merely to re
peal the duties on tea and coffee. Not
even the title of the House bill remained.
It was a general revision, not only of
the tariff, but of the internal revenue
system. He trusted that without re
gard to the intrinsic merits or the prop
osition in the Senate substitute, the
.House would assert unanimously one of
the most valued of all rights and priv
ileges by laying the Senate bill on tho
tabic. After some discussion tbe resolu
tion was adopted. The steamboat bill
then came up, but- without reaching any
action the House adjouraed.

the arrival there of General Howard, is
not credited here. General Crook's plans
have been approved by the war Depart

Secretary Delano, in a letter to Gover
nor Burbank, of Idaho, states that he has
information that a combination of men
has been made to enter the region of
country Known as tne JBiacit mils or Da
kota, which is within the reservation of
the Sioux Indians, and that Federal of
ficers encourage the move ment. He says
the reason for this is that the territory
has valuable mineral deposits and quan
tities of timber. The Indians are. already
apprehensive, and trouble may ensue.
hence, by direction of the President, he
requests the Governor to cause a stop to
be put to any combination of this char
acter against tne laws. inc secretary nas

The object was to combine all the petro

scheme, and they accordingly made
written contracts with all the railroads
centering in the oil regions, to raise the
price of freight one dollar and twenty
cents per barrel. The South Improve
ment Company was to have rebate ot one
dollar per barrel. The production last
year was six million barrels, and if this
arrangement had gone into enect the tax
on consumers would havebeen $7,500,

The Times, iu an editorial on the matter,
ays there are at present two bills pend
ing in Congress, each of them aiming at
a solution of this problem, and that Con
gressional action will anticipate milita

country referred to for settlement. One
of the bills referred to authorized the
Secretary of the Interior to purchase the
Black Hills region troni the Sioux Indi

TiiAt further adds that live weeks ago
the project of owning t white settle

upon as Utopian. To-day the matter is
receiving the earnest attention of our na
tional Congress, and the time is rapidly
approaching w-hen a peaceable, just and
equitable solution of the whole question
will be arrived at. The gentlemen inter
ested in the movement have no intention
of engaging in an unlawful enterprise
or coining m conflict with the military
or other powers of the government, but
an expedition, formidable iu numbers
will surely prospeet the region referred

Business in men in Chicago are in
censed at the discovery that the North
west and Southwest have been flooded
with a printed circular containing sev
eral distinct falsehoods respecting Chi
cago, and signed by J. V. Dodd, Tu' the
interest of the wholesale trade of St.
Louis. The document states that the
business of this city is at a stand, ow
ing to the small pox, the terrible state
of the burnt district, and the financial
condition of the merchants, and that the
business men of St. Louis were never in
better condition to Invite trade. It
seems scarcely necessary for Chicago to
denounce this circular as a dastardly
piece of business, and to refute its state
ments concerning its business faciliiies.

Dispatches frem the volcanic districts
of Ingo county, four hundred miles
southeast from San Francisco, give ad
ditional details of the earthquake disas
ter of Tuesday last. Shocks continue,
tnongn in decreased violence, it is re
markable that only the single slight
shock of Tuesday was felt -in Central
Xorthera California. Corra Gordo was
badly damaged. Some buildings were
thrown down, but only one man killed.
Lone Pine appears to have, been directly
over the centr of disturbance. Among
the killed at the latter place was Mr.
Gray, aged forty-two, a native of Texas.
The remainder were all Spanish Ameri
cans. Tbe first shock is descriled as
like a park of artillery fired directly be
neath t4e town. Colonel Whipple," who
was in the second story of an abode
house, states that he had lust time to
Jump from bod and get to the doorway,
wtien tne nouse appeared to crumble to
pieces beneath him. He was buried
among the ruins, hut succeeded in ex
tricating himself from the debris, suf
fering from several painful wounds. Tbe
scene beggars description. Nearly the
whole population was buried beneath
the ruins. Cries for help and screams
of pains fropj the wouuded filled tbe
air, while thane who escaped from ruins
were calling for hlp to rescue fathers,
brothers, wives and children. The first
shock was followed in quick succession
by three others. Over three hundred
distinct shocks wore felt between half
past two o'clock and sunrise. In fact,
tli c earth was in a constant shako and
trcmblo for oyer throe hours. A chasm
was opened extending thirty-live miles
down the valley, ranging "from three
inches to forty "feet in width. Rocks
were torn from their place? and rolled
down into the valley. Everywhere

NEW YORK.
The following appeared in the TVt&ttne
directed "To Colonel William M. Gros
venor, Chairman of the Executive Com
mittee of the Liberal Republican Con
vention, Washington:" Sir "We Re
publicans of New York, wish to express
our concurrence in the principles lately
set forth by the Liberal Republicans of
Missouri. . AVc make this departure
from the ordinary methods of party
action from a deep conviction that the
organization to whieh we belong is un
der control of those who will use it
chiefly for personal purposes, and ob
struct the free expression of opinion
on oniportant matters which the gen
tlemen whom you represent have laid
before the people of the United States.
We believe that the time has come when
the political offenses of thegpast should
be pardoned; that all citizens should be
protected in the enjoyment of the rights
guaranteed them bv the constitution ;
that federal taxation should be imposed
for revenue, and so adjust as to make
the burden on the industry of the coun
try as light as possible ; that a reform
in" oivil servioe should be made which
relieve political action from tho in
fluence of official patronage; that the
right of local self-government, the
foundation of American freedom.should
be reasserted, and the encroachment of
the Federal powerlchecked : and we al
so believe that at this time a special
duty rests on the people to do away
with corruption In office. The expo
sures recently made in this state have
brought th light evils which are not
confined to one party nor to a single
locality, and disclose dangers more
formidable than any which the Re
uuclic has yet encountered. With the
hope that the movement begun in Mis
souri may spread through all the States,
and influence every political party, we
accept tl.d invitation to meet in National
Mass., Convention at the city of Con
cinnati, on the first Wednesday of May
next, and we invite all Jtupublicans of
New York who agree with us to co-op-
perate in our action.- Mgncd by Henry

Tribune's editorial on the call says : The
letterjof certain New York Republicans
to Colonel Grosvenor, herewith printed,
is the first unequivocal resiionse from
the East to the overture of the Liberal
Republicans of the West for a consult
ation at Cincinnati, ou Wednesday,
May 1st. Others will soon follow.
There is no longer an excuse for doubt
that tne convention will be field and be
respectfully attended. We prsume that
should any important action be taken at
Cincinnati, those present from each
State would designate a portion of their
number to -cast a vote of that State in
Convention. But no one is excluded
from attending, and the invitation is' so
broad that many will doubthiss be pres
ent who have not been invited. Cin
cinnati proffers all a generous welcome.
Whether the Convention p ill determine
to put forth a declaration of principles
to present national candidates, or adopt
some other form of appeal to the conn
try, no one is entitled to forecast. What
ever it shall do or propound will nec
essarily derive all its force from its ac
cord with public sentiment. This con
vention speaks with no authority and
claims no power but that which may be
accorded to the intrinsic worth of its
acts and its declaration.

The following lrom one who has had live
years experience in the manufacture of
Pianos, Melodibns, and' Organs, may be
interesting to all who may wish to inves
tigate the subject, or to those who desire
to buy. "o wood is fit to be put into a
Piano, Melodion, or Organ until it has bad
three years good seasoning at least. Five
months is the shortest time in which Rose
wood can be finished with Copal Varnish.
Three-fourths of the instruments of the
kinds mentioned above, are made from
lumber seasoned no more than three or four
tceelcx. The result is, the piano will not stay
in tune, tbe varnish will check and fall off,
and the instrument will be out of order
most of the time. Hazelton and Brother's
Pianos have stood ttcenty-jire years, la
New England, and throughout the country
where they have been introduced. To-day
this nrm are making a piano with more
real merit than is possesed by any other
in the United States. It'don't cost a farm
to buy a biano, unless you indirectly pay
a commission to three or four agents.
l win sen a, Hazeltou piano at a very
sniall advance on the cost to the manufac
turer. I will give a written guarantee from
Hazelton Brothers, and Myself, that the
instrument shall give perfect satisfaction
for yeai s, and "otherwise the money is to be
refunded. I will furnish ten or twelve dif
ferent makes of Pianos, usually sold about
the country by agents who know nothing
abont thein; for less than 30o,0.
