oGHTON", M. II. HOUGHTON, KDITOES. It it a matter for congratulation that ft majoritj of the Republicana In oar State Legislature had lufflcient honesty and good sense to vote in opposition to reorganizing oar public institutions ex cept for cause The Republican press of the State was justly indignant when the Democ racy coming into power proceeded forth with to discharge every one connected with them without regard to fitness or unfitness. No matter if the incumbent by education and by natural endowment " was specially fitted for his position, and though ha ncTar Interested himself in politics beyond casting his vote, yet in obedience to the maxim that to the Tic- tors belong the spoils, he was obliged to atep down and out. It is a contempti ble doctrine, no matter by whom it is held, and those who act on its principles Should nerer by our consent have any offi cial position. We were greatly sor prised that so many, or even avy. were found in the Republican caucus to sdvo- cite the wholesale turning out of all Democrats without regard to faithful neaa and competency in the discharge of duty, and it is ho sufficient excuse to say the Democracy did the same thing. It ought to be enough that such a course is unjust to the officials and deltimf ntal to public interests, to deter but from such a course who have mental and moral ca pacity sufficient for a Legislator, not to mention the fact that the Republican party almost to a man condemned such anion when practiced by their political opponents, both in State and National affairs. The Republicans who formerly occupied those positions are now out, past recaU, many of them engaged else where in responsible and .lucrative posi tions and crbld not be induced to relin- Taish them, even if it were desired to re-instate them in their former places. The Democratic appointees are in, and if they are doing their work well they should be allowed to remain. ' This course is directly in the line of civil ser vice reform, it is in the line of good business poller, it is in line with political purity, the better class of peo pie deaiand it and will have it, if not by the Republican party then by some oth er, and the maa who gets in the way oi t lis much needed reform will soon find t lat the public does not need his servi ces. The opposition comes from unprin cipled men, .base men who desire Jo re ward their political henchmen for dirty wjrk done in electing them to office and tie ability to grant official position for ich cause is the bane of American pol- i ios. ' Remove this temptation and we may hope for a great advance in the mor als of our politicians and statesmen. . A Trip to the Capital City. Monday the 21st nit., in company with friend B I took a seat in an early traiit. and Whirled away Southward, ar riving at Columbus about 1 o'clock, p m. After refreshing . the ioner-mau with-a substantial lunch at the Davidson House, we repaired Ui the - City Hall to attend, a conference composed of direct' ors and superintendents of uoanty in firmaries.' from all counties of the State, under a call from the' Superin tendent cf the Board of Charities. The question for discussion was, ; "Hew to Provide for Epileptics.' .1 - After much discussion resolution were passed (almost unanimously) ask ing the State to build an ay'uui for this unfortunate class, and remove them from . the County Infirmaries; as the cheapest and easiest way to provide for their needs. - . . After adjournment. : we nought - out our genial representative, Mr. Horr, who. with friend a , from Carlisle, were kindly invited to take tea eat- his neat and quiet boarding-house. ' After tea we all sallied f on t, and brought up at the asylum for mutes, where we were met by a smiling and gentlemanly guide, and conducted through several balls to the audience chamber. We aat a few momenta observing the many in mates, then we were charmed with beau tiful music, and as the curtain rose in marched a dozen or more boys and girls and executed the Maypole dance right royally. After this came -scenes of miner life, Indian life, etc. The closing scene was the .Lord's prayer by a lady mute, repeated aloud daring the time by tne master or ceremonies. The next forenoon was spent by most of tne delegates visiting the penitentiary. asylum for the blind, and the asylum for the mutes again, l strolled . about tne cry, mounted the s'.aira three times to the turret of Old Probabilities, hoping to get a peep at tne machinery by which they calculated (with much accuracy,) the winds ana storms that pass to and fro over the land, but was doomed to disappointment. la the afternoon we visited the asylum for imbecile youths. We were wel corned by the superintendent's amiable lady, and with other assistants conduct ed through the various departments of the large building, class rooms, work rooms, sleeping rooms, wash rooms, din ing rooms, etc,- and finally halted in tie room or hail devoted to amusements Here we were delighted with gymnastl performances, accompanied with good music, singing and dancing. Here wr made the acquaintance of the matron, (s lady formerly of Lorain County) and in an hour of pleasant conversation gained much valuable information, besides hav log a very enjoyable time. Our chief informed us that a part would stay here and have a plain tea and a part would po to the insane asylum and be treated ditto. . Our tea proved to be aa excellent oys tsr supper, equal to Delmonico's best. Too much praise cannot be given to the s jperintendent, his estimable lady and the whole corps of assistants for the ex cellent manner in which the institution Is conducted in all its virions parts. From here we went to the asylum foi the Insane, about 80 rods distant. Her we met no friendly welcome, no kindl. nod of recognition, but like sheep in strange pasture wandered in, found i aeat and gave ourselves up to mediiatioo Did these men of large capacities (judi lag from their rotundity) own this vat.' pile of brick. stone and morttr instead o we, the people f Was all the elegaooi , refinement and beauty the fruit of Iheii labor, and were we aliens not deserving even a kindly smile by . those passing to and fro, or was it a Democratic institu tion granting to all the privilege of doing what they pleased? We prefer Repub lican institutions, judging from our stand point. Alter an hour of waiting we joined the thron; and wended our way up stairs Lad wti seated la the gallery, overlook- iug the dancing hall. Another one-half hour waiting and the dancers were called forth, music struck up and a Italy time followed. -N -" v .- - At 9 o'clock we reeaioed the street and sought our lodgings in the city. The next forenoon we rode over to the State University farm, looked over the college building and farm cattle, etc. Saw the best herd of Jersey cowa it was ever our pleasure to witness. Borne fine Lrarbam cows, Berkshire hrg, etc. The barns. we tbouKQt, poorly arranged, and a great waste cf fertilizers by badly constructed jardt; also quite a loos on tools by being improperly boused. The farm is beauli fully located, has an excellent soil and should be made a model farm. The afternoon wt' spent in the two houi-rs of the Legislature in company with Mr. Horr and Mr. Herrick. Took the 5 o'clock train and returned home, and here we are. W. OUR NEW YORK LETTER The Late Frank Leslie Uncle Sam's Pocket Money The World's Fair Frantic Ferry Boata . Nw York. Jan. 1880. Frank Leslie is dead and regretted Perhaps the most American of publish era. in toe sen se oi patriotically catcning everything interesting to our people on the wing and giving it fall prominence in his publications, be was by Dirtn an Englishman, and his name was Henry Carter. An artist by instinct, with keen literary perceptions superadded, ne nat urally gratified bis Debt by contnouting to the papers, bat his friends objecting to it he assumed the nom de plume of Frank Leslie, which, after arriving here he formally adopted, and the change was sanctioned by an act of Legislature Uis career was phenomenal, a. list of the numerous periodicals he conJu ed with such signal ability would take considerable space That financial dim culties overcame him in his later years was a misfortune ho shared with many other men of prominence, but his pluck was unabated, and baa ne uvea a iitue longer he would have been clear of the harassing interference of his creditors' committee, wlose annoyances, it is charged, hastened his death. His col lection of uoMcuts, accumulated curing his long and industrious business life time, amounted to over a million, and cost for the drawing, engraving, and procuring fully 13.000,000, a mere item in the gigantio business. A faded pho tograph of some half -forgotten celebrity suddenly brought into notice, when fur nished in the uick of time, has often brought the lucky owner 1200 or $300. Mr. Leslie's superb country mansion, with its park, was the glory of Saratoga. In it he dispensed an elegant hospitality. Mr. Leslie was 'an excellent judge of character and a firm friend. His em ployees, from his chief editors and ar tists down to the scrub-womsawho pol ished the floors of the new and magnifi cent building in Park Place, were de voted to him. lie was married twice, his tecond wife, to whom he was fondly attached, being the sole legatee of his large fortune. The funeral was quiet enough, but among the hushed throng of mourners were many or the foremost cit izens in this country, men distinguished by learning dignity, wisdom and genl- ous. As a pleasing instance in point of our present prosperity, I may just remark that on Tuesday last Uncle Sam took in $903,000 (only $7,000 less than a mil lion) at the New York Custom Uouse. Of this sum $730,000 was in gold coin, weighing about a ton and a quarter. The preparations for the coming World's Fair In 1333. are likely to be begun shortly. Two rival organisa tions have consolidated in the . most amicable fashion, and at a preliminary meeting under the chairmanship of President Jewett of the Erie Railroad, considerable enthusiasm was manifested The appropriateness of the date selected, being the centennial anniversary of the acknowledgement of American inde pendence by Great Britain, and the place. New York, being the last portion of soil evacuated by hostile foreign troops, was dwelt on with effect. It is queer what coincidents occur every now and then to strengthen the notions of spiritualists about presenti ment and all that sort of thing. A few days ago a Brooklyn paper, by way of a sensation had some articles and in terviews about what might happen if a ferryboat pilot were to die -suddenly. Of course, in such an evet-t the conse quences might be awful. The East River is a very crowded wtery high way, full of remarkably swift, intricate and ever varying currents and eddies. and the ferryboats are during several hours of every week day packed like sardine boxes. The companies have for years been very fortunate, tats few lives of passengers which have been lost hav ing been sacrificed by their own impru dence in trying to land, or embark while the boats were ia motion, or else by suicide. The officials pooh poohed all idea of danger and economically de clined to go .to the expense of keeping two pilots at the wheel of their boats all the time. However, one day, a tug boat was observed careering - wildly about the stream, puzzling the conduc tors of all the ether craft in the vicinity aa to how they should get out of the way. The pilot had fallen in a fit. Next morning the pilot of one of the Pulton ferryboats fell dead while the boat was in the slip, narrowly escaping a terrible calamity, for the boat was jammed to suffocation with workingmen and women, and the river was thronged with other vessels. The directors promptly doubled up their force of pi lots. In the same afternoon, two ferry boats collided and one sunk in a few moments after. No lives were lost. .Radix. The Sucoeaaful One Thousand Dol lar Price Musical Composition. About a year ago the Musical Festival Association of Cincinnati offered a prize of $1,000 for the best musical competi tion by a native born citizen - of the United States. The authors were at lib erty to select any subject they pleased, which should include the chorus and or chestra. Over twenty compositions were offered for competition, sad, while the terms utterly prevented the identity of the author, there is Intrinsic evidence for believing that all the bet composers of this country have contributed for the honor of the prizs. The title of the chesen work is "Scenes from Longfellow's Golden Legend." The name of the author of "thla com position will not, according to the condi tions of the prize, be known until the sealed envelope containing his name is opened on the night of the performance, Fire Hundred Thousand Strong. In the past few months there lias been more than 600,000 bottles of Shi loh's Cure sold. Out of the vast num ber of people who hare used It, more than 2,000 cases of consumption have been cured.

Church, Sabbath morning. Too, lat, 1880, by Rev. N. a. Albright. 1 Text, "For the love of money is the toot of all eriL" . 1 Timothy, vi, 10. . Tho love of money work rula in our pol itics and legislation. It put to rule the coun try, not patriots, but politicians; not states men, bnt party men. For three years the Republic has been on the verge of revolu tion. If the people were as wicked and un principled as the politicians, we have been In Instant peril of war for three years; but the people are patient and law-abiding. meanwhile there ia nothing done. The peo ple wait in valnHo see peaee established on a permanent basis. The recent high-hand ed attempt to steal the government of Maine may well give us warning of the peril of the hour. It has come to this pass that a hand ful of unscrupulous politicians with a gov ernor who was not the choice of a majority of hia people can almost steal a' state and they attempt It knowing that U they sue eeeded in that state they can undoubtedly steal the government of the United States, lias It come to that? Can a handful of men so nearly steal the governmen of forty-live millions of people, and hold it at peril of civil war? Are we so base? Have our poli tics then become ao corrupt? The politici ans all say that If the Democrat had held Maine they could have secured the next Presidency. To this pasa have we come in fifteen years at party rule of partisan legis lation. And the people seem Indifferent. The great difficulty la we have no vital ques tion before the American people to-day, There Is no difference between the purposes of the politicians of the great parties to-day that la worth contending for, at least none appears. The spoils of omce are evidently the absorbing aim of the politicians of all parties. I aay there ia no valuable question before us to-day. In this live, busy, pro gress! re age the American people boastful of progress are discussing no Important issue. O yesl there Is the question of fiaanset What la that? Simply this, shsll we pay our debts In all this agitation, the whole Issue Is, shall we pay or repudiate? -And the American people stop to discuss that under a thousand disguises, discuss that only. The Bouthern States follow Minnesota in repudiation! Then la the love of money gone mad.' The love of money Is the ruling question In American politics to-day. Do we love money well enongh to repudl ate or do we love it little enough to pay? No question before : ual What of the negro question? Four millions of freedmen en franchised by law and disfranchised by law lessness, and this great nation standing by tor years seeing her loyal citizens murdered and robbed by traitors and fln ding no edy. Preachers of our own church even within a year, murdered lor no crime out was ox preaching the Gospel to black members of our church, and when our bishops demand protection for them our own people think we are mixing religion and politics. I aay the negro question la not before the Ameri can people to-day. The conscience, the manhood of the American people would car ry t-ircb and baronet over every acre of the union rather than submit to suth outrages If the question were once allowed to be put. We are no men at all if after Ugh ting four years to preserve the Union we are unwil ling, If need be to fight again to make the Union a protection to Its loyal citiscna. No question before the American people, and the whole body of the basin States passing under the control of the Mormons. An aa blushing poljeamist on the floor of Con gress, their people trampling the flsg in the dust of their streets, and the great par ties neither of th.-m daring to avow the sen tlment of the American people tbat would wipe out that blot m a day. Utah at the door of the Union and no party daring to send her off to clsanse herself. The President can say what he pleases, his sayings are ooly recom mendations. Does his psrty dsre take up the question? No, we are ou tho eve of a great election. A great election! What question Is to be decided then? Three years ago we came near being plunged into civil war over a presidential election. There Ik a glaring defect In constitutional provisions for such an emergency; for no living maa can tell where the final decision of a disputed election belongs. We should take warning and provide a constitutional remedy for that peril. No, we are on the eve of a great election. We cannot attempt constitutional questions now. Then what Is the question, the great question whose mighty Interests over shadow the negro queslion, the Mormon question, the public school quastion, the temperance question , the presidential election question, the great Question to which all these must deter and wait further discussion and decision? What la that great question? Simply this. no more, no less, shall the Republicana or shall the Democrats elect the next President? This of course Involves all. the post offices and other offices of trust and profit to the total of 100,000 places. The question Is shall these hold In or go out? . If these stsy in wui wey protect we jrccauren m uiair rights? WlUthey keep DcnnU Kearney and hi. hoodlum. from murdering Chinamen In 8an Tranclseof Will they hold Utah off till in will they protect the freedmen In their she makes herself decentf Will they sustain On. nnhll ar-nnnl avatcm North and South? mhi they guard against possible civu .war? They dare not promise any oi inese wings now for they are on the eve of a great elec tion. And this Is the atate of affaire. Fell tl clans tell us It will never do to agitate any of these things now. It will never do to ask the American people what they think. It will never do to ask us, thetmerlcan people to "express our mind," to say what we will. No. we are simply to elect which of the two parties, without principled will not say un principled) we prefer to have rule ua. "Gov ernment of the people, for the people and by the people," dare not be attempted. To eonsultthe people would demoralise politics, Need we wonder that the parties are nearly equally balanced, that the people seem Indifferent. Unless the people soon rise and break up our liberties and our love ot country must perl-h. Who cares for a government that darea not protect a loyal clUcea on its own soil, for a government that dares not put down rioting In .her coast cities, that dares not protect parents In sending children to state schools, that darea not Inquire into the evils of the liquor traffic, that darea not re duce Mormonism to obedience to her lawa, that dares not in time of peace take constitu tional measures to guard against possible civil war. It la time that we should see that the great end of human life and human government Is not to make and hoard money. God Is ruling the nations to protect, not money, but men, to develop not wealth, but manhood, and the people that will not see noreonslder, Gd will tesch In effective wsys. The late sweeping reaction to politics in the Northern States, upon tho issues raised by the extra session of Congress, Involving the freedom and purity of t lections, shows how quickly the people will respond to a question involving the right of man. Give the American people a principle to vote up on, and they will show themselves over whelmingly conscientious. Puritan blood Is not all dissolved out ot the American heart. If the people get a fair chance to express their heart and will on the great Intereata of the Republic, the spoils system will be blsst ed, as by fire from heaven, the abominations of Mormonism will be smitten ss the storm wave amites the rudderless bark, the oppres sor of the black mtn will cease to swagge and shoot and swear and learn .craven coward as he Is, to beg for mercy. Give the people a chance and the noisy hoodlums of the cities will iind work or be shut up .out of harm's way, while law abiding people of all lands shall dwell among ua In peace. But we waste our breathe. We are on the eve of a great election, and theae quest'ons Involving manhood and human rights must be deferred while the politicians tell us what men they want us to elect. And they will tell us. In the village caucus or primary meeting, they will skillfully go through a well atudled pro gramme of exercises In which a cut and dried ticket will be nominated without fall. In the county convention where the court house official welcomes their patriotic fellow cltlsens from the country whom they are to manipulate In the intereata of the party to get men nomlnsted who will look after the Interests of the party, and In the state and national conventions, they will tell ua Just what men they want elected. Some are nom inated to give character to the ticket, some to commend it to the sporting fraternity. some, to attach tor agricultural, some the mining Intereata, some to conciliate the tem perance men, some lo reassure the liquor men; In all events a strorg ticket will be the great object. The chief merit of the platform Is that it conciliates so many conflicting Intereata and alienates none; the more perfectly non-com mittal on vital Issues the better. The con viction Is sadly prevalent among the people that their political leaders are seeking per sonal and party ends rather than the public good. Party leaders In our midst tell us that while Republicans here, they would be Democrats In the South, for they believe in the rule of the upper clssses. Legislation, In connection with which there Is fsr too much lobbying and caucus domination. seems to be largely engrossed In the effort of each party to get the other on record without com mltting Itself to any policy or principles. The great party of human rights eatranchised thejlack man to hold the results of the war In the South, and abandoned both black and white loyal! sis to conciliate rebels North and South. The result is a solid Couth made powerful by wielding the representation of four million disfranchised loyalists. Neither party will commit Itself on the Chinese question, or the Mormon question or even the Indian question without first bal ancing the probable results on the following elections in the States concerned. Republl cans handle the temperance question gin gerly, for fear of losing the German vote the Democrats for fear of losing the Irish vote, and the .great body of Americans are left to endure a great and growing evil while reform grows every year more dlffl, cult, as the liquor Interest gains time to la trench Itself In every community. If either party touches the question, the other will use the action to make political capital In the next canvass. One legislature ferry. menders the State and reorganizes Its penal and benevolent Institutions; the next districts and reorganizes acsin. All seem to study most the problem .how to get and hold power and spoils, snd no question Involv ins the Isstiog Interests of the oeople Is at tempted. Want of exercise will Induce 61 aease, the vital fluids most circulate to every part of the system, or congestions, fevers had tumor, will attack the vital organr. Nothing but agitation, awakening the pub lie conscience, will keep politics from cor ruption, and keep parties pure. The brave and manly discussion of the great and last Ing interests of society, in the fare of tem porary passion, and prejudice, end greed will briug Into politics men of convictions, and retire men ot low a'nd selfish alms Bat when the politicians rule out cf sglta tion and discutslon, questions of mstibood and right, and public morals, the dtesy of liberty must speedily follow.
