HOBTHERH OHIO JOURNAL.
JHES E. CHAIBEES, Editor. SATURDAY, - - - JULY 6, 1872. EDITORIAL PARAGRAPHS. Impartiality in politics or religion is a quality frequently most puzzling to those who are unable to understand the and neutrality. Those who have business in Washing ton, and importunate creditors ot the gov ernment, are anxiously awaiting the return of President Grant and Secre tary Robeson, from their sea-side ram blinds and the resumption of their legitimate duties as public officials . Verily if speech is silver, silence is golden because if you never say any tiling, people cannot qnote it against vou. Horace Greeley, in his Trumbull county speech, last fall, remarked : ' If thn Democratic nartv were called upon to decide between Grant and my sell; I know that their regard for what they must call urinciole Would induce nine- tenths of them to vote against me. Why f I am a decided enemy of that party, even in its most respectable aspects. '' Thb Sunday Herald of Washington was the first "paper in the city to sup port Greeley but the Capitol and Patri ot have.since followed in the wake of the Herald andthe Sunday Chronicle is begin ning to have a leaning in that direction We fear that the disposition of the Presi dential patronage will allhavebeen pro vided for before the ''farmer and phiioso nher" shall have taken his seat in the White House. On Friday eveninz last, the braves of lammany, puion meir wsr pmui nu feathers, and listened to the grand Sa chem Seymour as he advised them to ' eive the "old white hat and coat" their support and votes. In commenting up on the meeting, the New York Standard ' says that Horatio once had a noble,bushy ' caudal appendage but that having lost it, a few years ago, in a Republican steel trap he would now like to have . Greeley follow the curtailed fashion. . Bowles is a most remarkable man and if he should run for President we fear that the Springfield Republican would prove as'; formidable a weapon in the hands of his opponents as is the Tribune iu those ot the unfortunates who fail to recognize the claims of its former editor to sit in the White House. In a recent issue the Republican says : No democrat can reasonably be accused to Greeley, even ir the latter is formally n ilnntad h (ha nortv's nnmSnftl nfttinnnt i convention. It is becoming altogether too com mon, iu politics, for vituperation to take the place of argument. There is really no more sense In applying the epithet "Greeley Trash" to the papers that sup port Mr. Greeley than there is in de nouncing as "Grant Minions" those who favor the re-election of Mr. Grant, We are opposed to all such abuse and spitefulness, no matter whence it comes, One ought to be able to differ from his neighbor in matters political without be. '' ing obliged to exchange stupidities or to indulge in ridiculous and odious per sonalties. .. Ot the two principal parties now inthe field, each claims to be the only true and faithful champion of reform, and, while declaring the other to be the essence of corruption, Btreuuously maintains itself to be a paragon of virtue. If there were really an earnestness in the expressed .desires to bring about a reform, the con duct of the canvas would furnish an ex cellent field for operations. A semi respectable and unimpassioned manner of writing and speaking would go far to benefit not only the press but the mem bers of the opposing political organiza tion. Apropos of the grandiloquent claims advanced by both parties,a cotem- porary tells a good story of an English minister at Naples, who thus expressed himself on the state of his household af fairs. "My cook tells me that the stew ard swindles me and my steward says that the cook is a thief. I believe them both." And now another Englishman is puz ' zled to know how the apples get into the dumpling. Mr. Alfred Wallace, well known as the author of "Contributions to: the Theory of National Selection," - has recently written a review of Robert Dale Owen's last work on spiritualism, entitled the "Debatable Land," in , which he maintains that the facts staled ' by Mr. Owen are such as to force one to a belief in spiritualism. If one admits the manifestations to be as stated, un doubtedly, Mr. Wallace is logical enough in arriving at his conclusion . that there is no other solution than that they are produced by invisible beings who were once in the flesh. But the arguments Drought forward would be much more satisfactory if, instead of begging the . question by asking this admission, more pains had been taken to satisfy one that Mr. Owen's facts are really facts and not mere illusions. That Mr. Greeley will receive the De mocratic endorsment and nomination at Baltimore can now be considered as be ; yond a doubt, but whether he will be accepted by the -masses of the , Demo cratic party with that enthusiasm neces sary to ensure an unanimous support is a matter of more uncertainty. Certain ly there is one member of that party whose vote cannot be considered as pledged to the philosopher of Chappa- qua, for in an article written to the De troit Free Press be presents a list of ob jections as follows : 1. Upon the occasion of a slight differ ence of opinion between me and H. G. he said I was a liar. 2. He said I was a horse thief. 3. He said I waa a rascal and perjured villian. 4. He said I was a slum. . He said I was a poisonous reptile. 5. He said I was a traitor. 7. ' He said my "affinities were all bad, ( not females). . 8. He said it would be the ruin of tbe country if my party ever got any power in it. Just at the present time there is some- . thing peculiarly refreshing in the ac counts that come to us of the fitting out - of various Arctic Explori ng Expeditious Of course it is not to be supposed tiiat the promotors and originators are at all influenced by the argument of contrast, - but with the thermometer among the nineties, icebergs, glaciers and frozen floes certainly possess an unwonted charm and under the action of scorching heat, the question as to the existence of an open polar sea assumes an import ance not fully realized before. During the present week an expedition, fitted out under the auspices of the Aus trian Government will sail from Bremer- haven, and at Stockholm a Swedish geographer. Professor Nordenskiold is about to commence an overland journey to the North Pole, by means of reindeer and sledge. Possibly the World's an cient mariner, in prose, was suggested by the Professor's plans and ideas. Then there is still another expedition which will shortly set sail from Havre, while our own Captain Hall lias openly de clared hi intention of reaching the orth Pole this present summer, and Octave Perry is going to look for it a raft. Taken altogether there is every reason to believe that the next two or three years will see great additions made to the present knowledge of the scientific world concerning those desolate regions, whose bleakness and barrenness have ever proven invincible obstacles to the acquirement of information which all savants with singular unanimity, now argree to be greatly needed. Probably the expedition sent out bv the New York Herald in search of that distinguished but somewhat uncertain explorer and traveller, Dr. Livingstone, was one of the greatest instances of journalistic enterprise tlmt the world ever saw, although it is, perhaps, no more than might have been . expected from a paper whose name has come to be synonymous with legitimate energy in the collection of news. But never theless the sending a parry hundreds of miles into the almost unpenetrable wilderness for the enlightenment of its readers and the general public,is a work that justly challenges our admiration, and one cannot but feel pleasure in reading of the success which lias atten ded the expedition. Last Thursday bronglit authorative dispatches from Mr. Stanley, detailing his meeting with Dr. Livingstone aftermost arduous checks and hardships, the loss of a considerable portion of his party by the hostility of the native tribes, and .discouragements which would have appalled any but the bravest men. Dr. Livingstone was found one thousand miles from the Jiore on the banks of a great inland lake beyond which point he was unable to proceed, iu consequence of the ex haustion of his supplies, until succored by the' Herald correspondent. Having joined their forces they explored a con siderable tract of country and finally separated the Herald representative re turning to make known the results of his investigations and Dr. Livingstone re maining to complete the exploration of central Africa and to discover the source of the Nile, that vexed question which has remained for centuries unsolved. Our Kxchanyeii, A new novel by James De Mille, whose "American Baron" and "Dodge Family." have been so popular, has just been commenced in Appletons' Journal It is entitled "An Open Question," and is pronounced, for variety of character, for intricacy of plot, and for profusion of dramatic situations and startling in cident, superior to any thing be has yet written. The hrst chapters will De found in Appletons' Journal, No. 171, of the date of July 6th. It will be continued for several montns, eaen numoer illus trated. We did not suppose that Mr. Greeely's features were susceptible of so many expressions as- they are until Mr. Nast undertook to delineate the face of the irrepressible Saturday . wood-chopper in Harper1 e Weekly.

So far as we can judge from, the examina tion of one number, this publication will prove a valuable auxiliary to agricul turalists generally, although more es pecially intended tor our soutneru states. Its reading matter, both original and selected, is very fair, out mere is mucn room for improvement in its typogaphy and mechanical execution. Subscription $1.00. ,: The superior style in which Hurper's Bazar is gotten up.in point of typography and illustrations, makes it an indispensi- ble family visitor.

Innumerable hints and suggestions are given the ladies in the realm specially appertaining to them, and no magazine in the country can be completer. At tne same time, tne tsa- zar contains the thoughts of some of our best writers'of the day, and its edi. torial essays, the continued and minor stories, the poetry and gossip, hints for the household &u.,are all dictated by good taste for the best interests of the home circle. The Bazar is $4 a year and worth double its subscription price, Addrss Harper & brothers, Jsew orkr Crofutts Western World for July has reached us, and presents in this, the first number of the second volume, its usual amount of varied and interesting reading. There are several interesting articles, both original and selected, a good araonnt of news items condensed from western exchanges, and a large number ot chatty agreeable correspon dences. The first page is adorned with a fairly drawn illustration of the lower falls of the Yellowstone, and further on one finds a map of the Midland Pacific Railroad and its connections. The World is an ably conducted paper, and to its columns we are indebted from time to time for many interesting articles upon various western topics. Specimen copies can always be obtained by writing or applying to the publishers, 138 Nassau St., ew xork. A. Minor Grlswold('Fat Contributor') & Co. propose to commence the publica tion of a weekly in Cincinnati, to be called The Pat Contributor's Saturday Night. In the course of their prospectus occurs the followiu g : "It is not unusual for people about to start new papers, to inform the public in a semi-apologetic way, that they hare discovered a 'void' iu newspaperdom which they propose to fill. They leave it to be inferred that they would not thus madly pranue into the uncertain field of journalism did they not distinctly perceive this void, and had they not un bounded confidence in their ability to fill the yawning chasm. And they fill it too, not unfrequently, and we hear no more of them or their void either. We do not profess to have discovered one of those voids. In fact, we don't care whether there is a void or not. In stead of hunting one np we intend to goto work and make a place for a new paper, and strive to establish it there on the basis of public confidence and ap preciation." When selecting a list of papers with which we desired to exchange, at the time the publication of the Journal was commenced, we were necessitated, in many instances, to be guided by the re-r putation sustained, rather than by any actual knowledge of the papers chosen. For this reason it has been with no little interest that we have watched how our own judgment has confirmed or reversed that opinion by which we were origin ally guide-!. In making up this list the name of the Akron Beacon was among the first put down, and uow,after pearly a year's exchange, we feel confident that, were we to again prepare a similar list, it would again be -placed In a like honored position the only difference being that now we should be guided by our own acquaintance and judgment in stead of that of our friends. Always well and ably edited, its enterprise 'is confined to no particular department but is diffused throughout the entire paper, and the energy which has long made it the best weekly in that section lias but made the late fire which des troyed its office an occasion to display anew Its unconquerable spirit. We arc pleased to see it announced that the Beacon has nearly replaced its lost ma terial, and that it will soon be reinstated in its new building, for, aside from the general feeling of regret with which we heard of its misfortune, there was the more sharply defined one caused by the knowledge that the loss occurred to one of our most valued exchanges.

Herald dispatch , from London says letters have, been received there from Stanley, the Livingston explorer, of which the. following is a- summary "From Unyanghube, where Stanley ar rived in September last. He intended advancing on Ujiii, but Mirambo, King of U jo wa, declared that no caravan should pass Ujiji except over his body. The Arabs declared war and anticipated victory. - Stanley gave assistance the first dayln concert with the Arabs, and attacked , two villages, and capturrd, killed and drove away the inhabitants. On tbe third day the Arabs were am bushed and routed with terrific slaught er. On the fourth day there was a gener al desertion of his Arabs, and after con siderable difficulty he reached the sub urbs of; Ujiji. - He entered firing s and carrying the American flag. The astonished natives flocked out in crowds with deafening shouts. He noticed in the cenre a group of Arabs.strongly con trasting their sunburned features with the : hale looking gray-bearded white man, wearing a naval cap with faded gold band, red woolen shirt, aud pre senting a demeanor of calmness before the Arabs. He inquired: "Dr. Living stone, I presume?"-He, smiling, an swered "Yes." : The latter informed him that he started in March '66, with twelve Sepoys, nine Johanna men, and seven liberated slaves. He travelled up the bank of the Roruma, his men got frightened, deserted, and reported Liv ingston dead as an excuse for desertion He crossed Chambezi and found it not the Portugese Zambezi, but a wholly separate river, tie found it was called further on Lhalaba: He explored it seven hundred miles, and found that Chambezi is doubtless the source of the Nile,1 aud that the length of the Nile is two thousand six hundred miles. It is not supplied by the Tauganyeka. He reached within one hundred and eighty miles of explored ground when he was obliged to return to Ujiji to recruit. He here met the writer and both left on the 16th of October aud arrived at Unvnan- yembe at the end of November. They spent twenty-eight days exploring the district together. Livingstone was left at Uneyanyembe to explore the North of laujanyika lake, the remaining 180 miles of Lulaba riyer. This will occupy tne next two years. The situation in regard to labor strikes to-day ia practically unchanged, and presents no new developments of interest. In some quarters rumora are rue ot negotiations in progress between uie sinners and Dosses whioh promise an amicable settlement of the existing difficulties, but the reports seem to lack confirmation.

The opera is a mixture of two things which ought al vvavs to be kept distinct the sphere of musical emotion, and the sphere of dramatic action. It is not true under any circumstances, that people sing songs with a knife through them. To 'war between tlie stage and music is nterneeiue. We have only tj glance at a first rate libretto, e. g., .that of Gou nod s "i-aust, to see that the play is miserably spoiled for the music. "We have only to think of any stock opera to see that the music is hampered and im peded in its developments by the play. Controversy upon this subject will, of course, rage fiercely. Meanwhile irre versible principles of art must bo noted. Music expresses the emotions which at tend certain characters aud situations, but not the characters and situations themselves, and the two schools of opera have arisen out of this distinction. The Italian school wrongfully assumes that limbic can express situations, and thus gives promiuenee to the situations. 1 The German school, when opera has been forced upou it, has striven with the fal lacy involved iu its constitution, by maiutaiuing that the situation must be reduced and made subordinate to the emotion , which accompanies it, and which is the business of music to express. Thus the tendency of many Germairon- eras is to make the scene as ideal as pos- luie. l ne inure unreal uie scene, the more puiiosopiiical, because the contra diction to common sense is less shocking in what is professedly unreal than in what professes to-represent real things, uui, uws su iu u unnacnrai manner. neuer was impelled by. a true instinct to select an unreal mi en scene in con nection with which he was able to ex press real emotions. "Operon" and "Ier Frieschutz" are examples of this. Iu spite of all drawbacks, it is not diffi cult to see why the opera does, and prob ably will for some time, retain its pop ularity, .the public in all ages are chil dren, and are led like children. Let one person clap and others are sure to follow. Let a clown but laugh, and the whole house will giggle. A long drama is a little dull without music; much mu sic is a little dull without scenery. Mix tne two, in uowever unreasoning a man ner, and the dull or intellectual element in each is kept out of sight, and will be swallowed unsuspiciously. It is the old story of the powder in the jam.' I sav nothing against music being associated with situations, as in the "Midsummer Night's Dream," or as an oratorio. It is only when music is -made part of the situation that it is misapplied. Let the event in all cases be left to the imagina tion ; but if it be expressed, then the more imagiuative aud suggestive the expression the less the violence 'done to common sense. The cantata and orato rio are the forms which, with some mod ification, will prevail over the opera. When Mr. Shantlcy appears in Exeter Hall as Elijah, in a tail-coat and white kid gloves, no one is offended, and every one is impressed, because lie does not pretend to reproduce the situation, but merely to paint in words and music its appropriate emotion, leaving the rest to be supplied by the imagination of the audience. But let Mr. Snantlv put on a camel's hair shirt and appear fn the oth erwise wild and scanty raiment of the Hebrew prophets let him sing inside a pastboard cave, or declaim from the sum- iiiil in a wuuueii camei, ana our rever ence is gone our A'ery emotions of the suunme music are checked by the far cical unreality ot the whole thing. Hen- Jtubenstein once entertained, perhaps still entertains, the idea of putting the w uuic ji jtcnsis on tne stage with sa cred music, and thought that England's reverence tor the Bible would pave the ntty lur uie prouuonoii ot sacred opera in mis i-uiimry; ue was mucn disap pointed on being told that it was pre cisely Lngiishmen's traditional sense of reverence lor the Bible stories . which would not suner them to witness its scenes brought before the footlights. I his is perfectly true. But why is it so? -ur,L-usc me more strongly we feel the importance of the story, the less we can bear to see it presented in a perfectly ir rational manner, such as opera present ations muss, always De. SKELETONS J! UOVALt LOSKTS The Prince and Princes of Monaeo tliagree,juarrel and sepcrate,it appears, like other mortals, and lind their do minions which consists of one city with from twelve hundred to two thousand inhabitants not sufficiently extensive to hold ihem both, so the lady, without a "ticketMif-leave,'' takes her departure from the home of : the "hereditary Priuce," and seeks a more congenial at mosphere in Florence. -'- , The Princess is represented as youn" and very handsome. :, Before marriage she enjoyed the title of Duchess of Hamilton, and had been fciit a few months a bride when she )eft her hus band's house and territory, and sought refuge elsewhere. He does not appear to have been very much distressed at her absence, since he made no effort to have her return, or in any manner to assert his rights as far as she was concerned, until the birth of their child, which, proving a son, he desired to get possess ion of. ' i ?' 1 He therefore attached her by process of law, and she was summoned to imme diately surrender her child to the repre sentatives of his Highness of Monaco. The Princess was in dispair, but reso lutely refused to yield her bahe, and, sustained by her cousin, the Grand Duchess Oiga, who happened; to be at Florence, the two resolute women, with out any knowledge of the lw-in the pre mises, defied the emissary of the Prince, and appealed to the Florentine Court. This Court had sot aside the order given at the Prince's instignation by an infe rior court, and decided that the mother is to have the custody of the child, and inasmuch as the boy was not born under his fathers roof, and never saw it, the law of 'reintegration" did not apply to him. So anxious was the Prince con cerning his royal scion that, not satisfied with the efforts of Signor Nardiai, his minister to Italy, he appeared at Flor ence and prosecuted the suit in person, which caused his wile to pot their child for safety under the care of tho Grand Duchess Maria, the sister of the em press Alexander. The principality of 3Ionaco"foriaei'Iy. contained three towns, but his Serene Highness Carlo Hanaro sold Meuioue and Boccabruna some ten years sbce to the French Government,' and; now it consists but of Monaco and the few miles of land about it, containing altogether some eighteen or nineteen thousands in habitants. The principal revenue is de rived from the gambling saloons Mon aco beirisf one of the noted gambling places of Europe. It is of easy access to Paris, so that the hereditary Prince, ex cept in the height of the gambling sea son, is seldom to ho found at home.
