JAMES E. CHAMBERS, - - - Editor. SATURDAY, - - APRIL 20, 1S72. " EDITORIAL. PARAGRAPHS. . If oppositlou to incompetent or dis honest candidates is tole held as treason to political principle, bow are personal fraud and corruption to be ever removed from the places of power to which they may have attained ? - Tbk adjournment of our Legislature ha been definitely fixed for the 29th Inst., bo that but little over a week now remains la which to carry through the uccesifully Accomplish tlii requires un remitting labor", -and it Is to be hoped that we have seen the eud of those ex hibitions that have so frequently dis graced the assembly during the past winter. Fully enough of the people's time and" the people's money have been squandered to gratify personal ambition or personal spite, and common justiee would now require that some , attempt, at least, should be made to accomplish work, which the publie weal . requires. And it is but fair to nay that since the resolution, for adjournment was adopted, there has been a marked improvement hi the disposition of the members to take up' and consider those measures of tublic iuiDoi tance which have hitherto been suffered to lie neglected. Ten days of hard labor can accomplish much and. jvelmst that the 29th will see most of the matters finished, without that in considerate unh which too often Char acterize!! the closing days of a 'Legisla te"'. - ', , , ' . - ' ''1; ',tiii; iht ci fi ' The great political meeting which was held at. Cooper Institute, iaN'ev York, on Friday evening last, was one of the largest gatherings ever witnessed in that city'. 'At an early hour ever seat and all available ..standing room was packed withi a.;densc mass, of people, while vrowds .were forced to go away, unable to gain admission. ' So far. as we are able to judge, the an- dienee r as composed, of that thoughtful intelligent class, whose sympathies aud Htrpport are always given to any move. mcnt which promises to reform existing abuses and enforce the' honest, efficient and able administration of the .Govern mcut. Many may have attended from curiosity, but the enthusiastic applause which: was so -frequently, during the evening' accorded ' to' '" the speakers. proved that a majority," at least, of those nresent received, with favor thestate- , merits anil argument advanced by . Sen ators Trumbull and Schurtz, ! The speeches -were both of them able and clear statements of the charges made by the ' so-called liberal . HfepublieaH3 against the present administration.' They were forcible and to tlie point and, what ever may be the result of the new move ment, these expressions have at all events placed the possibility of misconception as to its views and position, entirely out of the question. - There were speeches also made by Horace Greeley and others, while letters were read from a number pfdistinguished statesmen, whose duties elsewhere rcn dercd their attendance impossible. These were all unanimouf in their condemna tion' of the present administration, and enthusiastic in their support and adhe rence to the newmovement of which this meeting waa the first organized expres- eio'rt." ' - , FBJlKCE MX THE FCXUKJE. What should be the political course of France Is apparent to every thought ful observer. What will be the policy adopted by that brilliant, unstable na tion is not by any means equally plain With a debt of twenty thousand million of. francs and a neighbor who can, in tw6nty days, put in motion a military forcq of from six to seven hundred thou- and men, it would seem as if they ougl to recognize the necessity of self-control of adherence to the present form of gov erumen't and' of the repression of that peculiar characteristic of ; instability which has. so often before ' wrought dis aster to that country. But the lesson one that appears impossible for them. ever to learn, ' Thosc extremi3ts'who will ac knowledge no. necessity, however imper ative or manifest it may: be, are alway able to jflnd' enough followers, among that fickle, thoughtless people, to render any scheme of rational government ex tremely problematical. Clearly the first and most imperativ duty, to which every energylof body and mind should be bent, is' to pay off the national liabilities and obtain the evacu ation of those provinces now held by the Prussians. j'To accomplish this requires firm -patient : support of the present form pf government. The Republic is an actual fact; it: exists as the power which obtained terms ot peace from , the Germans; it is the organization , whose faith has been taken as a guarantee for the payment of the war-indemnity; it the authority upon whose existence de pends lhe observance of the terms of the treaty on the part of Prussia. " Once dis- turbed or destroyed aud the Cabinet of Berlfh-really' uneasy 'or : accepting 'flic opportunity . to preteud to be so would demand .additional guarantees for the payment of the indemnity, the natnre of which no one can foresee. ' "!," " But all these facts are overlooked or ignored by those schemers w ho flatter themselves that if they , can overthrow that which now exists they will be able ioflnd places for ' themselves under a new regime. The consequence is that plots and counterplots,- distrust and sus picion mark the present state- of affairs In France. Late advices tell us that ex pressions of disapproval of the present administration are becoming common, and that strong Bonapartist manifesta tions have been given by the people in various parts of the country. Were France other than she is,these might pass for mere nothing, but as made by a peo ple the most peculiar of any in Europe, they possess a deeper significance. " While it may be doubted whether Na poleon- will ever again become the arbi trator of the destinies of France, it is still more a matter of doubt whether the present Republic has that hold upon the public which will ensure its permanence AT THE CAFTAN'S OFFICE. . During rue past wcefc mauy ot our subscribers, who receive their papers through the mail, have been favored with a circular letter, dated at the Postoffice In this place and signed by Geo. E. Paine as Postmaster. Concerning this, one word of explanation : '- For some time in fact, ever since the commencement of the publication of the JouBMAii we have experienced, great dif ficulty in securing its prompt aud regu lar transmission through the mails. Ya- riou-s and continued complaints have come to lis and have been by us, in turn, laid before the ' Postmaster here, but w Ithout t effecting ,any lessening of the annoyance. . . Finally, finding that noth ing Tould be accomplished by mere local means wc laid the matter before the De partment at Washington, with a retpiest lor investigation :iid relief.

ThVpeculiar and slightly arrogant phraseology of the form for their reply, which is furnishid at the end of the circular, is simply a characteristic mod of- expression, -ttd e trust tliat no one will take offence at the assumptions 'oiUaiiited ju-it. we r..; 5 .i;.i i . f are-wett-awarie'thatHBrtae wne-are ac quainted with Mr. Paine would not do aeyTwt may SegiHatttT BMtrgTOrgT the plcmor his am-ualnaiuceand from them we bespeak a consideration that will lead them to overlook it. . ,' "' The publication of our letter to the De- partment is so much a matter of good taste that we should not refer to It except for the mauuer. in which it' was ot- tined. Failing to procure a copy from the. Department at Washington., . Mr. aine asked us if we bad any objection to furnish one to him, as he desired it for tus own private use. n uiiug to oonge, we at once placed our letter-book at bis disposal, but with no idea that he in tended to bring the communication be fore the public. As we had not the slight est objection to its publication, and as we would have furnished a copy for that purpose as quickly as for any other, we oniy Vegret, for Mr. Paine's sake, that he considered it necessary to de scend to any subterfuge. " But now that Mr. Paine has actually taken the matter in hand, we feel confi dent in assuring our readers that beyond a doubt we shall be able to secure for! them the benefits of a certain and regu lar reception of their uaiiers. And we feel the more positive that otir anticipa tions in this respect w ill be realized, from the merited reputation, which Mr. 'Paine enjoys as successful business man. With, his well-known energy, persever ance,, and . indomitable 'tick-to-ative- ness,"it is of course impossible for'him to fail in remedying the an'noyauces to which we have been subjected. Wheth er as a projector of railroads, a promoter 1 of manutacturing interests, ujuiaiingcr of patriotic military movement-J, a statisti cian, a politician, or a Postmaster, Mr. Paine has always carried every plan through to so successful a completion, that we feel the fullest confidence, in his ability to do the same in the present in stance. ".':.'u Utenrltn. .. The, AldUe, for May has just arrived giving further proot of the wonderlul progressive power of its -conductors,both in the art and literary departments! It is, indeed,' a triumph for America that its youthful civilization has given to the art - world -u publication so unique .in conception - and ho excellent in its de velopment as the Aldine. At the dinner receutly eivcu Dy trie publisher to the artists and literati of the country, Prof. Cattell, President of Lafayette College, spoke as follows ; : "The success of t he. UUine, lite the growing power and in fluence of the great colleges, is oue of the-uiost hopeful signs for the future of our eouutry. Kvery American is proud to know thst we have now great schools both for liberal culture and applied science equal to those abroad where the past generation were compelled to send their sons;.ana witn equal pride we point to such publications as the Ahliue, in which the scholarship, and the. ele gant and varied culture of our age is presented in a style of typography equal to that of the oldest and best publishing house in the world. Iteterenee has oeen made to the great excellence of its en gravings." This feature of the magazine had impressed the speaker equally with the elevating and instructive character of its reading matter. : Our busy .practi cal people need such an education to wards the appreciation of the beautiful. The Aldine has entered upon a mission field, where the prospects w ere not very encouraging, and it is certainly a great triumph of its able and. enterprising publishers that they have already wou for it such a great success. From the start thev made great claims for it, and the subscription list shows that the pub lic responses are quickly setup' in the emphatic style known as 'double caps.' And the increasing circulation of the Aldine is something not onlv for the publishers to be cheerful about: It show?, that, after all, there is somewhere among our people an appreciation of what is first-class in art as well as in literature. Let us cultivate this and it will bear abundant and goodly fruit With the accession to the management of the Aldine of our learned and accom plished friend, honored iu all the re public of letters,-the increased circula tion ot the magazine anu its large emci encv in: promoting a love for the true aud beautiful Is not so much a prophecv as the statement of an accomplished fact." - .., NEWS ; OP THE WEEK.

The only bill of any interest to anybody, which came up was Mr. Young's Senate bill to give Boards of Health power to provide for the proper interment of the dead, and keeping a proper record of deaths and burials, and guarding against the spread of infectious diseases, and which was passed. On Thursday there were seven new bills in troduced and oue. passed. Mr. Stevens' redistrieting bill came up but was finally referred for amendment, without any ac tion being taken. On Friday six peti tions were presented, but through some extraordinary mistake or oversight no new bills were introduced. During the day eight bills were passed among which were Mr. Brinsmade's Senate bill to so amend the act concerning divorce and alimony as to authorize the court to also grant an allowance for sustenaneo of mi nor children pending a suit for LUvorce and to allow an injunction, with or with out bond, at the direction of the court, against tlie husband to prevent him from disposing of his property so as to defeat the application of the wife for alimony.

Second That the proceeds of the sales were promptly paid into the treas ury. Third That no sales were made to any known agent of either of the bel ligerent governments, and that no act was done by .the Secretary ot War, or auy of his subordinates, that was calculated to impair or violate any international obligation.

Iu addition to-these re ductions, the committee endeavored to throw saleguards around the adminis tration of tlie Custom House, and has greatly simplified the laws pertaining to internal revenue, it hits consolidated into an equivclent tax of .65 cen;s nearly all of the several taxes on whis ky. It has removed many annoying and restrictive provisions ot the existing law obstructing the business of the dis tiller, and harrassing commerce in that article. It has provided, instead ot six cents for smoking tobacco, and thirty two cents for chewing tobacco,, a uni form tax of twenty cents per pound on all kiuds of tobacco, aud has, at the same time, provided a safe method for exporting tobacco, a well as spir its, directly from the manufacturer, without tin; cumbersome and unsatisfac tory drawbacks of tlie existing law, and it has been its endeavor, while reducing taxation, to make more efficient, and if possible at the same time less burden some and annoying laws, that shall en force the duties and taxes which re main. At the conclusion of Mr. Dawe's remarks, Mr. Maynard asked and ob tained leave to introduce the bill on which himself and Mr. Kelley, as a mi nority of the committee, hadagreed. It is entitled " A bill for further reduction of taxes and promotion of commerce." It puts internal taxes first. It makes tea and coffee free, with other additions to the free list. It- adopts the ten per cent, reduction-provision of the Senate bill as to many of the articles embraced in it. It puts the rate of tobacco at six teen cents per pound uniform, , aud it permits the Secretary of. the- Treasury, under such regulations as he may pre scribe, to maintain tobacco ware-houses. It also provides a consolidated tax of s'rxty-five cents on spirits, but abolishes the tax on sales of spirits, but abol ishes about half the stamps included iu schedule B. The measure makes a re duction of $30,000,000 from two sources of rcveuue, and provides for-diminution of the force of the internal revenue service to the extent of half the num ber of employes and expenses.

In the Xational Colored Convention, the committee on permanent organiza tion reported, naming Fred Douglas, for President, James H. Iughram first Vice President, and George T. Ruby Secretary. Mr. Papier of Alabama, of fered the following resolution : Hesolced That we, in the name of the colored peo ple of the United States, repudiate any sympatic with the late Reform Coni vention, held at Columbus, Ohio; also the Convention of Liberal Republicans, called for the first of May, at Cincinnati. Referred to the Committee on resolu tions. Mr. Harolson said that there were but two political parties in this county, the Republican and the Demo cratic. The Cincinnati Convention was a Democratic convention-. Lieutenant Governor Pinchback opposed the pas sage ot the resolution, as it carried on its face the eoiidcmdation of Charles Sumner. He (Pinchback) would re main here iu convention a long time before his voice should be raised to con demn Sumner. FredDo'Jglassarrived,and on taking lhe chair made a speech, in which he said when the war began we heard this was a white man's government and a white man's war. Xo negro should have a hand in it. Even Abraham Lincoln at first denied us, but at last he was with us. His object was to save the Union, and when the fight became severe he learned wisdom. Not until the armies were swept away, not until they saw the Star Spangled Banner1 trampled in dust aud blood by victorious rebels did they call on us. Thus the preservation of the Union was through us in part. I do not say we saved the. Republic, , but we had a hand in it, and so deserve our freedom. ..He stated he had been denied hotel accommodations since lie left Washington, and advised the use of moral and political powers to bring about- a speedy change in this respect. We are more indebted to the federal government., than to the fcjtate for what rights we have, and so we should sup port it. He stated that the party led by Trumbiill aud Schurz favored State rights.. Iu that parly he had no confi dence. But the Republican party must come up higher. .Though General Grant is an honorable man, and one for whom I expect to vote cheers? yet tlie 'Republican party has now a imui at Washington who represents the future, uud is a minority in himself a man at whose feet Grant learned wisdom. That man is Charles Sumner. .Applause..' I know them both., They are great men. But Sumner is steady. He is no flicker ing light. For twenty-five years he has worked for the Republieau party, and 1 hope I may cease forever if I cease to give all honor to Charles Stunner. On motiou '. the House rose and gave three cheers for Charles Sumner, and Mr. Douglas concluded amid applause. ILLINOIS. A letter of Governor Palmer has been published,, giving hi3 reasons why he declined to be a candidate for renoniina tion before the Republican State Conven tion. He could not submit his claims to that Convention, because its nominees must necessarily be committed to Grant. Governor Palmer takes exception to the measures of the administration, and op poses the re-nomi tuition of General Grant, who, he says, has not the incli nation or ability to enforce ccouoniy and reform in the government, The steamer Oceanus, from Red Riycr to St. Louis, when near Brooks Point, twenty miles above Cairo, exploded her boiler, blowing the upper works almost entirely away," immediately after which the wreck took fire, burning to lhe-wa-ter's edge. Pilot Thompson of the steamer John Lumsden, lying a few miles below, on seeing the' light from the burning wreck, manned the yawl and proceeded up the river to ascertain the cause, lie found a small party of survivors on the head of the island, 'but passed on to relieve those on the wreck. Ten or twelve were cliugingfjtogthc wheel, but the wheel dropped before he reached them, and all but four were lost. He found a deck passenger, name un known, near the shore, badly scalded, who died lie fore his arrival. The Cairo steamer Bollo of ht, Louis, bound up, took nearly all the survivors. Thomp son rescued pilot Harris, who subso. queutly went to ht. Louis or Marble City. The hitler states that Wiggins, their Red River pilot, was drowned. Harry Trill', pilot ou watch, and also Captain Reeder, were buried iu tho de bris, and heard calling despairingly for help, but the fire had gained such head way that they eoy!d lioQ reached, and trom Cairo ov ran, out was seen on tuc boat after leaving Cairo. Charles or- sham, second clerk, Jules Dempewolf, steward, and Charier Muvay, cabin boy, were toiind dead, floating in the river, all with life preservers on, and brought to Cairo bv the steamer Shreve, supposed to be chilled to death. There were five lady passengers, and all were lost. The bodies ot lour laaies were seen noating past Watson's Landing, but were not re covered . Fisher thinks Pilot Harris and himself were tlie only employes of the boat saved, though the Belle of St. Louis may have picked up some. Officers of the" Shreve state that there were about thirty cabin and thirty-five deck passen gers, making with the crew nearly one hundred souls, about eighty of whom arc lost. Fisher describes the effects of the explosion as terrific beyond concep tion, the whole upper worts oeing inteu bodily, and falling on the boat and in the water completely shattered, ne saved himself by securing a plank and floating until rescued by the yawl of the Lumsden. He was in bed at the time, aud thoiiffh covered w ith debris was only slightly bruised. Cairo, April 11 Midnight, The steamer Grand Tower has just arrived, and reports the first engineer and mate saved, and also thirty-two otner persons, on the Belle of St. Louis. The second engineer was saved but died of his in juries. .. JfBW YOBK. A srreat meeting was held in Xew York Friday evening last to advocate to Lib eral Republican policy of the approach ing Cincinnati Convention. It was one of' the largest in numbers and most im posing in composition ever held in the city. An hour before the commencement of the meeting, Cooper Institute was thronged to its"iitmost capacity and thou sands clamored in vain for admission, and failing to find it remained for hours outside the building. Every seat was occupied and the aisles from the plat form upward were densely crowded. The audience was an eminently -respectable and representative one. The platform was literally packed with men promi nent in the political and social circles of Xew York, among whom were Horace Greeley, Sinclair Tousey, Moses II. Grin nell, Hiram Barney, Marshall O. Rob erts, George Wilkes, Frank Lislie, John A. Dix and a large number of other prominent men. About halt past seven the densely crowded audience began to manifest some impatience to witness the opening proceedings. To meet this de mand the list of Republican oflieers who had signed the call for the Cincinnati I Convention was read. Tlie names of - ; many of them were received With loud cheers. The meeting was then called to order by Ethan Allen, who said : "Fel low Citizens: As one of the committee who signed the call for this immense mass meeting, assembled in the interest of this political partv and reform, I have the honor to nominate as your President Colonel Frederick A. Conkling." The nomination was at once enthusiastically indorsed. Colonel Conkling on coming forward was greeted bv heartv cheers. ! He said: "Fellow Republicans: We are honored by the presence to-night of two of the most distinguished statesmen of the Republic. Great applause. One of thsm was born in Xew England, and the other on the Rhine. Cheers.! Both of them sire representatives of the imperial west, which in all coming time is to control tlie destiny of our common country, Lyman Trumbull of Illinois and Carl Schurz of Missouri. Prolonged cheering. It is hardly necessary for me to say that throughout tue lengtlrand breadth of the land, the names of both are associated with defense of constiiu tional liberty, and of rights of local self government with restriction of delegated power, and with firm and unfaltering advocacy of the rights of the masses. Applause. In view of the near ap proach of the Presidential election, they have consented to leave places In the Sen ate of the United States, for the purpose of addressing us, not upon the dead is sues of the past, but upon the living is sues of the hour. Applause. Thank ing yon for the honor of being selected to preside over this vast assembly, I await the further pleasure of the meeting." The list of Vice Presidents and Secreta ries were read and elected unanimously. Among the former, Horace Greeley, Sin clair Tousey, Michael Doherty," Isaac Sherman, Waldo Hutchins, Moses H. Grinnell, Hiram Barney, Charles A. Dana, E. L. Godkin, Parke Godwin, Mar shall O. Roberts, George W. Palmer, Richard M. Blatchford, John K. Porter, George Wilkes, Samuel Sinclair, Rufus F. Andrews, Minthrone Tompkins, John A. Dix, E. G. Squire and Alfred Pell. The following declaration of principles was read and indorsed with tremendous cheers: ' "We believe that the political action of individuals and conventions should be left free from the influence of political patronage. That business men should not, under fear of unjust official interference with affairs, be compelled to pay tribute for political purposes. We believe that public offices are or should be created for public convenience, and not as rewards for partisan services, nor for personal aggrandizement. That acts of oflicials should lie confined within the strict letter of the laws creating such officials. AVe believe that the triumph of Republican principles is ot paramount importance to the country, and that the success ot these principles iu the ap proaching national election does not de pend on any one individual. V e believe thai the prosperity of the country de mands a thorough radical and immediate reform in' all the departments of the pub lic service, civil, military and naval, and that the one term principle for the Pres idential office will conduce more to that end than any other measure." About a quarter before eight o'clock Schurz and Trumbull arrived and were received in the most enthusiastic manner, which, however, was surpassed by th enthusi astic applause from all sides when Hor-. ace Greeley appeared on the platform and took a seat ou the speakers' stand. Mr. Trumbull spoke with great enerev and lire, and not only electrified but also instructed his audience by his eloquence. His assaults on the centralizing tenden cies of the present administration were hailed with indignant cheers, and he as tonished his hearers oy showing tlicm the despotism which threatens tlie safctv of the republic. He upheld in unquali- neu language the true Uemocrat ic doc trine of State rights, and while de nouncing tlio rebels as traitors he yet said they were never thieves. He warned his audience against the dangers of a cen tralized authority, which lias already es t iblished iu different States of the Union tribi i nals for the adj udicat ion of property and lives of the people subject to its own control, and said that this power was ii great clanger of abuse. At the conclu sion oi Arumouii s speech a letter wa. read from Senator Fmiton. Carl Schurz then came forward and was received with prolonged applause. He said he came here to raise his voice against par-! ties, the victory of which subordinates public weal, personal and party interest and to protest against slavish submission to party dictation, ag-iiust the con ii nu ance and maintenance of a power which over-rules tlie laws of the land for sel fish ends, against the growth of personal government which threatens to convert the public purse into personal property, against frauds and deceptions being practiced upon a confiding people to make what is wrong appear right, and patriotic that which is moan and selfish. He 6aid ho had started in political life in the Republican party and never de sired to connect himself with any other. He was proud of the achievements of that party, but recognized the necessity of thorough reform, and without unity in this purpose it would not be held to gether. Passing to the subject of mora reform, he said the easy apd Iqose mor als engendered by the war could most I easily be remedied : first, that those in high places should set an example of scrupulous purity; second, that the rul ing power should even more freely criti cise its own members than those of Hi opponents; aud third, that tho civil ser vice should he ao reformed as to make honesty, capacity, and fidelity to public interest. Qualifications for theofllec rath er than patriotism. At the conclusion of Sohui'z's address, Greeley was Intro- uueeit una made a brief speech. He said he would jjo forward with the non office holding Republicans to tho Cincin nati convention and tako Its consequen ces. The meeting tlteu adjourned .
