ED. BORCHERDT, Editor & Pni^r. THUESMY, MAY 3,1877. THE BUSINESS ASPECTS OF THE EUROPEAN WAR. There is some reason to apprehend that more damage will result to this country from the speculation stimulated by the war in Europe than will be compensated for by the advance in the price of our products. The gam bling spirit that has been manifested during the past two weeks is fearful to contemplate. This city has been the scene of great activity in operations of this character, and the operators are by no means confined to those who are by avocation dealers in grain, but to all classes of society. One has only to watch the crowd around a telegraphic instrument that prints the state of the market to learn how widespread the mania for speculation has become. As no wheat actually changes hands on any of these operations, it follows that when some make money, others must lose it, and when the excitement is over, there will be not a few wrecks to remove. The fact to be born in mind is that to effect considerbly the prices of American breadstuff's, the war in Europe must be a protracted struggle. This has not been the case with the European wars. The machinery of des traction is so effective that it is apt to reduce a war to a few sharp aud bloody shocks. The armies are ready by the time that the declar ation is made. They are moved by steam and their movements are directed by electricity. They meet; their fearful death-dealing engines do their work, and the story is soon told. A few such collisions disables one or the other of the combatants. It used to be t rue that the Lord fights on the side of the strong est battalions; it is now quite as apt to be true that the Lord lights on the side of the most improved batteries. As to the probable duration of the war between Russia and Turkey, it isn’t easy to form a conclusion. There is a railroad from St. Petersburg to Odessa, and there a conjunction caubefoimed with the fleet. The Turks tan make no effective defense on the Danube, aud it may be expected that the Russian army will cross the stream with little delay. This will make it necessary for the tnrks to depend on the Balkan mountains to defend them against the invader. If the Rnsssians should pass that obstacle, the fall of Adrianople would follow speedily. There is a rail road thence to Constantinople, a dis tance of 200 miles, and 21 hours would suffice to place the Russian army at the gates of the Turkish capital. Thus the war from begining to end, would be a matter of a few weeks. On the other hand, it is not probable j that the passage of the Balkan moun- ! tains will be very expeditiously accom- j plished. It is undeastood that the Bus- j sians will attempt to make their way i through the Shumla pass. They have attempted that enterprise three times before, unsuccessfully in 1774 and 1810, and successfully, though with great loss, in 1820. In the gorge is the walled and fortified city of Shumla. If, as in pre vious wars between Turkey and Russia, the Turks concentrate their army there, tin Russians will find it an obstacle of a very stubborn character. But here the i question arises whether the war confined to a comparatively small area in Bulgaria will materially affect the price of bread stuffs ia America. The most probable answer is that it would not unless the war closed the Black sea. On the whole, it is to be feared that the expectation which has been raised in this country will be scarcely realized if the war is only a struggle between Russia and Turkey. Speculation has advanced the price of wheat to a high ! figure, and it is conceivcable that the ! war prices are already discounted. But if Austria and the other powers are in volved, “then may we count oar gains.” The struggle will be long aud will sweep a wide path of devastation. There will be a demand for all our surplus pro ducts at high prices, aud if the crop of 1877 is large, it will give au impetus to the prosperity of this country that can scarcely be overestimated. Not this, but it will go far toward solving the finan cial problem. A general European war and a good crop will make resumption in 1879 an easy matter.— Sentinel. It is difficult to see how the transition from anarchy to law in Louisiana and South Carolina could have been more quietly, successfully, and completely achieved; and this is the more gratifying because it is evident that any abrupt or violent action would have brought a dangerous strain upon the popular self control. Is there anybody left who does not recognize at last the wisdom of the President's methods as compared with the hasty councels of those who urged the sadden withdrawal of the troops from Columbia and New-Orleaus on the sth of March, without a moment of delay or i note of preparation ?—A*. Y. Tribune. Those who have declared that anew party will be formed based on the creed “He serves his party best who serves his country best,” will be disappointed in the attitude of the president, for he has declared for the old party which honored him, and as against any other. In fact, the Republican party is anew party, made such by au active practice of what have been only ornamental theories heretofore. Instead of showing the shriekers for Civil Service reform “how not to do it,” as most of them hoped and expect ed, the President is showing them how to do it, to the gratification of all honest men. Mr. Hayes is the disappoint ment of the day. , It does seem as if Democracy grew more Bourbonesque aud obdurate as it spread northward. Here is the new Democratic Senator from Louisiana tal king like a very emphatic Hayes man. OUR WASHINGTON LETTER. Washington, D. C., April 27, ! 77. Our political cauldron here censed its seething upon the suriice when the Louisiana Commission made its report and Packard quietly stepped down and out. But there is a vast deal of ‘‘toil and bubble” in its depths no one doubts. There is a quiet but close scrutiny made upon every point, and there seems an intense desire to feel the public pulse in regard to the grave and momeutus issues involvea in the adjustment of the South Carolina aud Louisiana issues by with drawal of the troops from their position as political arbiters, and sending them to their barracks as conservators of the ■peace. The publication of Ben Wade’s letter denouncing the President's policy is pronounced now a violation of confi dence, and regrets are heard on all sides that it should have appeared, now when public opinion may be in and is averse .o the position involved in the strictures as to the denunciation and threat of im peachment against Mr. Lincoln, hence our political magnates are reticent and intently upon the watch as to see what the country will determine in the premi ses. The commission, upon its return, made a short repart of their doings, and evidently are proud of their successful engineering through which the two Leg islatures were combined, and a peaceful end attained. They regard Warmouth as a shrewd political and financial man ipulator, aud credit him with much that was done towards harmonizing the fac tious at New Orleans. He was “bulling’’ aud “bearing” during their sojurn for the purpose of making money out of state securities, and was perfectly con scious at all times that the troops would eventually be withdrawn, and that Pack ard must necessarily retire. After din ing with the President aud Cabinet at the White House, and discussing the situation generally, the Commission dis solved aud each member went to his home, leaving Mr. Hayes with the en tire responsibility of the settlement as made, resting upon him. In conversa tion with Gen. Grant at the reception given him by the members of the Metri politan Church, of which Mrs. Grant has been a member since she came to Washington, he expressed a regret that Congress should have to be conven ed now in advance of a prolonged test of Mr. Hayes experiment, rather than in December, by which time events and not debates of partisans would form and mould public opinion. He expressed himself favorably to the President, and believes that the true welfare of the colored man lies in the removal of every cause of antagonism between them and the whites. This reception was held in the parlors of the pastor, Dr. Newman, and was a pleasant social, wholly devoid of formality, hence Gen. Grant discussed the political situation without the slight est reserve when addressed in regard to it. When Congress convenes under the call for extra session we will have lively times, as every “buncombe” speaker as yet approached informs us that he is fully alive to the importance of the issues and will fully elucidate the problems involved to the satisfaction of the whole country in the speech he is preparing. Randall will be beaten in his canvass for the Speakership. He has the strongest support as yet, but the opposition now promise to combine, and thereby effect his defeat. To us it matters little who of the Democrats becomes speaker since in any event the Committees will be so arranged as to give the fullest one-sided partisan cast to them, and we dare say talent or ability of any nature will not be asked for in the various chairmen thereof, if we may judge the future by the past Congress. When such lawyers as Proctor Krott are selected for the Judiciary we are positive talent is not the great desideratum of the Democracy, and the Republican party can well feel a pride that a Bingham was its choice for years. WHITE HOUSE HATTERS. The President received a call recently ] from a Mrs. Sarah Davis, who has shak en hands with all the Presidents, and who, when a girl, saw Washingtou lay the corner-stone of the Capitol. She was unable to go up stairs to the execu tive room, so Mr. Hayes came down stairs to see her and to express his hopes that she might live to shake hands with several of his successors. Washington has always been her home, and her mind is stored with reminiscences of the city, as it has changed under her obser vation, from a mere trading post into a great metropolis. Mrs. Hayes concedes a little wine for the stomachs sake for titled foreigners, at her State dinners. She is determined to preach as well as to preach temperance at her table. It is an innovation that will require a good deal of “amiable stubbornness” to en force, for the American stomach has an undoubted capacity, and inclination for something stronger than tea, coffee and chocolate, and we will see whether she can withstand the pressure, for it will be difficult indeed to extend the favor to the foreigner to the exclusion of the cifizeu,especially when this citizen comes in the person of the average Congress man whose appetite for alcohol increases in the ratio at which his brains decrease from the nominal standard. That con necting link between life and death in the person of Alexander H. Stephens, called upon the President to tender his thanks for the course pursued towards Louisiana and South Carolina. The old statesman is very feeble and could not leave his carriage. Mr. Hayes met him in the vestibule, where the two inter changed views for a few minutes. GENERAL GRANT is here bidding good bye to all his old friends, aud the reception at Dr. New man's was given that he might meet the members once more. He called on Mr. Hayes, being his first visit since the inauguration. Mrs. Sartor-is will ac company him to Europe, as her house will be his home during his absence. Mrs. Grant looks well, and is proud of her grand-child and its interesting moth er Nellie. Ulysses Jr., will go with his parents. Jrxirs. ■Washington dispatches state there are to be no more pardons for whiskey thieves. THE NEXT BATTLE. Exit the carpet-bagger: enter the of fice-beggar. Six weeks of Hayes have sufficed for the Southern question which has kept the country in such turmoil for twelve years. But he has next to deal with an evil which has enrseu the land for fifty years. It has been grow ing ever since Andrew Jackson began to reward his friend and punish his foes. With every year it has intrench, u itself more strongly in our party organization, in our political habits, amt even in our laws. A political Hercules in honesty can not hope to cleanse these Augean stables in a day. Can the civil service be really reformed ? That is t lie ques tion which, above all others, will test the qualities of President Hayes aud his advisers. It will be forced into prominence at once, by his adversaries if not by his friends. The angry men who are curs ing because “the President has sold ont his party,” will presently find it con venient to seek some other point of attack than the President’s Southern policy. Nursing every feeling of wrath because of “the abandonment, of South ern Republicans,” they will make open war oily upon the reform which threat ens to break tip the machine in all States alike. To all the outs they will say, “Reward for your devoted labors is refused.” To all the ins they will say, “Reform means, to cut your head off.” For once it seems possible that the men who have got office aud the men who want office as a reward for personal or party service may be rallied to do battle under the same banner. We shall hear a great deal, uo doubt, oi “the one-armed soldier,” or his wid ow or his children. It will be said that it is abominably cruel aud ungrateful to turn anybody out of office because he or she is not needed or ia not competent. Tears enough were shed to produce a freshet in the Potomac when the num ber of female clerks at the Treasury aud Interior Department was reduced last week. Correspondents who passionate ly demanded reform before the election now borate unsparingly the Cabinet offi cer who wants to reform anywhere in particular—and would bei ate the Presi dent if they dared. It is very strange, too, that every man or woman that was turned out happened to be, according to some Senator or Representative or edi tor or other influential person, au “abso lutely ■ indispensable” person, aud “one of the best clerks in the service. ” Out of hundreds who went, Messrs. Schurz and Sherman did not happen to'hit a solitary one who ought to have gone. So it will be to the end of the chapter. The place to begin reform is somewhere else. The average politician prefers reform where the afflicted person thought it most desirable to have a boil, ‘"on some other man’s nose.” Not less zealous, but vastly numer ous, will be the people who want pay for party services. The five thousand men who “first suggested the name of Hayes” are all dead, it seems, because he does not recognize that as a qualifi cation for office. But none the less the great army of men who have done some thing for a Senator or a Representative or any influential politician are rushing to the front to get recommendations. To the distress o ' these patriots, it is noticed that the Piesidentis not prompt with his appointments. By the time the Senate meets, the murmurs of thou sands will swell into a roar. All the outs and all the ins who know that they ought to be out, all the jobs that exist and all the jobs that want to exist, will be rallied with the carpet bag ger and his friends for a grand assault upon this administration. Every 7 step toward the real reform of the public service will be resisted. Every selection of dangerous men who mean business in reform will be defeated if possible in the Senate. For each case there will be reasons plenty as blackberries. But for all there will be one motive— to break down if possible the Adminis tration which has become hated and feared because it is trying to keep its pledges and do its duty. The assulfc will fail, we trust. But it will be a desperate one. To defeat it will re dnire not only resolutionsbnt an infinite deal of patience.—TV. I". Tribune. Carpenter and Washburn have been writing a series of “open letters” to each other lately. The following from the State Journal, we believe, expresses the sentiments of the general public on the subject; We trust the public correspondence between Hon. C. C. Washburn aud Hon. Matt. 11. Carpenter will not be contin ued indefinitely. The stirring up of their past personal difficulties may be sport for the writers, but wc do not believe it will add to their reputations, or prove specially beneficial in any point of view to any person or to any cause. The last letter of Mr. Carpenter, pub lished in the Milwaukee Sentinel of Saturday, is perhaps smart, but far from able or dignified lor a person occupying the position in the country that the wri ter does. These gentlemen have both lived long in Wisconsin; they have both been highly honored by the people, and they should, in their conduct, show that they deserve well of their party, and of the people generally. But their recent letters to aud about each other do not prove any such thing; nor do they reflect credit upon either of the distin guished gentleman, in adding lustre to their reputations, as able writers or as dignified persons. They were out walking, enjoying the cool aud refreshing air. The bright moon cast its rays over the lady, giving her an almost angelic appearance, and imparted to her flowing curls a still more golden hue. One of her soft white hands rested in his, and ever and anon she met his ardent gaze witli one of pnre love. Suddenly a change came over her features; her fail red lips trem bled as if with surpressed sighs; the muscles of her faultless month became j convulsed, she gasped for breath, an I ; snatching her hand from the sc ft pre.x- j sure of his, she turned away, buried her I face in her cambric handkerchief, and i —sneezed 1 Sitting Bull is preparing a protocol I to be submitted-to the whites found within his range. It is; “I give you five minutes to leave the United States —and the time is up.” THE STATE TICKET. The question of who shall receive the j nomination for governor for the Repnl) i licau ticket in the nest campaign is he | giniug to receive attention trom the i press of thestatc. A considerable num ber favor the re-nomination of Governor liudington as lie has discharged the du ties of hia office to the general satisfac tion. Others intimate that it may be j well to try anew man. The Fox Fake ! Representative, while speaking well of i Gov. Lndiugton’s administration, thinks that there are good reasons why Gov. liudington should not be a candidate | for renomination; and one of these is, I it says, Wm. E. Smith, who had many | friends in the Convention in 1875, re fused to let his name be used as the ■ nomination, with the understanding | from Gov. Fudmgton’s friends that if | nominated without opposition he would j not be a candidate bar renomination, j Asa general thing, such agreements aio j of a nature not calculated to promote the j purity of politics or the general welfare | of parties; but if made personal honor and party harmony and success demand that they shall bo rigidly fulfilled. Whether such an agreement was really made, we have no definite knowledge; j although such was the common report ! and belief at the time of the convention j and since. The success of the Republican ticket this fall depends upon its character, aud i the harmony of the parry in its support; • and nothing should be done in making | that ticket to gratify personal ambition | at the expense of that harmony. We say ! this is the interests of the Republican i party, and not in favor of or against any ' individual. We expect to give our ! hearty support to the nominees of the ! republican convention, aud we are j anxious only such selections shall be ' made as will challenge support by their • character and abilities, and ensure the j harmony of the party. The interests ; of the state and of any party worthy to ! live are of far more importance than the ! ambition of any man or clique. With i a strong ticket, and harmony in its sup -1 port a complete Republican victory is j almost certain; without these the result |at best is doubtful.— Wisconsn. A Cleveland, 0., dispatch of the 2911i ! says; On Friday last a party of sportsmen ! from this city, while gunning along the j Fake shore at Euclid Village, ten miles east of here, found the dead body of a man on the beach. The body was con siderably burned on the back, one leg was broken, and the other leg had a large flesh wound. The head was perfect and covered with black hair, and full black whiskers. There was no clothing on the body but a pair of boots. The persons present had no idea whose body it might be, and as it was already de composing they dug a grave near by and buried it. After the burial a descrip tion of the body was told at the railroad station and it was at once recognized as that of P. P. Bliss, of Chicago, who was lost on Friday night, Dec. 29th, at Asht übnla in the great railroad accident. The theory is that the body was frozen to a cake of ice and carried up the lake to the point where it was found. Euclid is fifty miles west of Ashtubula. President Hayes persists in attending strictly to business, and allows the new party and the old ones to take care of j themselves. Gen. Sherman’s opinion of the war | in Europe is that it Wll be of long du- I ration, and involve other combatants | besides Russia and Turkey. The dispatches announce the death of j William Ganna way Browulow, better i know to the world as Parson Browulow. j The deceased was born in Wythe Coun | ty, Virginia, Aug. 29, 1805. j The sensibilities of the Democratic ! editor have not been so cruelly torn I since President Hayes abandoned the j negro, as they are now by the reflection | that Mr. Hayes has “disrupted” the | Republican party. England has issued a proclamation of neurality, and at the same time has ordered an army of 50,000 to occupy Egypt, and strengthen the English fleet in the Miditerranean by a number of powerful iron-clads. The Hon. Robert C. Winthrop has been talking with President Hayes aud has become a convert to his policy. He says while he voted for Mr. Tilden, ho is now an enthusiastic admirer of Mr. Hayes.
