Mant persons who take the Public Ledosb complain of the late hour at which it reachea them. We regret this, but find it difficult to find a remedy, We endeavor to get to press at two o'clock, but the late arrival of our dis patches renders that impracticable. At all events we will do the best we can, as suring our readers that the later the pa per the more interesting it will be. TEI GREAT PEOPLE. While the office-hunters, professional politicians, and the like, are improvising storms and hurricanes in coffee-pots and tea-kettles, the body of the people, per fectly unshaken by the uproar, move on in the business of life. There, a hard' fisted farmer sows and gathers hit corn and wheat, plants and digs his po tties, while his frugal wife and daugh ters, with sleeves rolled up, perform the work peculiar to the house. Here the me chanic beats upon the anvil, the last, or drives the plane, or makes yon furnace roar. Here, the cartman and dray man, an bespattered witn mud or dripping with water, or scorched with a summer's sun, go on whistling and humming the fragment of a song. Here, the merchant toils to make his profits, and here the busy hive swarms to and fro. Away overyonder rings the ax and roars the falling forest. There, is the church and there is the school house, and there is the water-wheel plashing by the mill; and there the engine puffs and screams; and there the locomotive, over its threads of iron, carries its freight of life and produce. Production has adapted itself to commerce, and com merce to everything. The laborer aud the capitalist are in accord. The plan ter and merchant have enacted laws tor the government of their relations. In a word, there is harmonious blending and intermingling of all professions and industries, for time has adjusted them and exactly adapted each to the other. Now, when this mighty mass of people are struggling for existence an honest existence must be struggled for and working peacefully and in har mony with each other, the office-hunter comes and cries, halt! What does he want? He wants a good office, with large pay, and one that, whether high or low, will keep his hands from blisters and from roughness. We are not speaking of men whom the peo ple like to honor on account of their capability and integrity, but of your professional office - hunter, ' the sum of whose idea of life is office. Is it not a pity that the beautiful mo - mentum and excellent harmony of the vast machinery of industry should be Snarred, excited and suspended ty the ranting and vociferations of one who makes no particle in it? It is believed ' that the time is not far distant when demagogues will be understood, and as signed their true position. Let the me chanic discourage them, nor turn from his labor to listen to their words. Let the plowman lose not a furrow, nor halt his mule, except in the raging storm, or in the blistering sun, for there the dema gogue cannot remain; he is too tender for that. The people have officers to elect. They know that very well, but they cannot perceive the utility of get ting into a passion about it. And so they will move along and allow the little tempest in little tea-pots to hiss on. HOW THE PEOPLE BLEED. An American paper says: "The enor mous sums aDDrooriated to the use of the royal family, and for the purpose of ostentatious display to enhance the pomp of royalty, seem to the practical English unnecessarily large, and have led them to inquire whether any ade ouate return is made for these vast ex penditures. The cost of the ruling fam-' ily, including annuities, the interest on large sums as that given to Princess Louise, military and naval pay to va rious members of the family, incomes from the Duchies of Lancaster and Cornwall, and the like, as well as money expended on the Queen's privy purse and the household, is set down at 707, OOO directly expended on the Queen and her relations. In addition, the house bold troops are estimated to cost over and above the cost of an equal number of troops of the line at least X 100,000; while the expense of the royal yachts it set down at 100,000 more, other items of less importance going to swell the direct and positive cost of royalty to about 1,000,000, or $5,000,000 a year. That is a huge amount of money for the toiling people of England to pay for royalty, and it is creating great dissatis faction. A republic is talked of on the demise of Victoria. Now, if the En glish people would By to a republic to escape so great an expense, had they hofare taking that step, look into the workings of our government? They would find that the amount of money itolen here per annum is much greater tt,. f, .mount raid to royalty. We never hear of defaulters and public thirves in Encland. " Punishment there is certaiu. It is not so here. The big ger the theft, the bigger tne man is our thief. . i.nnMn.nii: " The Hon. Wil- liam S. Groesbeck, of Ohio, one of the purest, best and ablest men of Ohio, or lie country, has many warm friends in Ohio, Pennsylvania and the Eastern States, who believe ke is the man who lar! the Conservative host to ne-1 the Presidents campaign on . r I tory 1-72 THE OAS COHTBOVEESY. In our local columns of yoatcrday we briefly adverted to the impolicy of setting up in our midst a corporation owned and controlled by foreigners, and having for its object the destruction of local capi tal. A simple statement of the propo sition that the one company is the prop erty of the citizens of Memphis, and the other the property of people from Cin cinnati, would ordinarily be sufficient to convince right-minded and thoughtful people that the home interest was first deserving of support; but, inasmuch as there fere complications connected with this matter which need explanation, we prefer to argue the matter at length. As stated in onr paragraph of yesterday, we again repeat, and with more than or dinary emphasis, that all the troubles and impositions put upon this commu nity came through Cincinnati foreigners men having no object here further than to burden us with taxations and exactions. Is this game to be played over again, and are we to be made par ties to our own destrction ? How perti nently comes up the story of the wood en horse and fallen Troy I The name of this horse is " competition." As a mat ter of course, these Cincinnati people, in the fullness of their love for the South, will urge the entire absence of merce nary or selfish motives on their part- holy, pure and unadulterated patriotism and a desire to relieve the citizens of Memphis of an "old man of the sea" is what moves those entirely disinter ested dwellers by the Ohio; not a dollar would they have, not a single atom of greenbacked lucre shall stain the hands of those makers of shot and shell where with we were pounded into obedience to the laws some years gone by. They are but baiting their traps now; but once let the foolish victim enter and see what will then happen. Impositions will come, millions will be wrung from our citizens to be taken away to build villas and create manufacturing industries in and about Porkopolis. Viewed from this position the question is of public interest, and should not be confioed to' the narrow limits of the mere price of gas. Whatever is paid to the Cincinnati corporation will be lost to us forever, whereas that which is paid to the Mem nhis men will remain and add to the commonwealth. There is the whole question in a nut-shell. On the other hand it may be argued that this is not a combination of foreign capitalists, but that the stock of the company is owned and held by bona fide residents and citi zens of Memphis. Now if such is the case, and these people are really patri otic, and have no other end in view than the spending of money for the public good, we can point out a nearer and more direct mode of getting at the end desired, to-wit: buy up the stock of the present company and do with it just as you like. If you have money of your own to erect works and lay mains of an entire new company, certainly you have enough to get control of the old one. We say this because we know from prac tical demonstration that it is not neces sary to invent more money in houses and machinery. Ve have enough of that sort of thing already, and any further outlay in that respect is but to take money hence to give employment to foreign me chanics, to rob Memphis of her capital and keep her in an eternal state of vas salage and bondage to the North. If this is desirable, back up the Cincinnati company. OBEAT BRITAIIT. The Herald says that the British radi cal republican democracy are io active and apparently energetic movement for the overthrow of the monarchy and the establishment of a democratic republi can form of government in the kingdom. Sir Charles Dilke lectured on the sub ject, in favor of the change, before large audience in Leeds recently. The men of toil, those who sweat away their humanity and dwarf their children in the " mills," were out in force. A row ensued. It was caused by a collision between the police and some of Sir Charles' hearers. Very trifling inci dents have tended to set John Bull in a roar against royalty at different epochs, from the time of Watt Tyler to the days of Sir Francis Burdett and thence to the movement of the great reform and emancipation and chartist meetings in England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales, and the end is not yet. Thi Washington correspondent of the Cincinnati Commercial writes, Novem ber 23: " Representative Maynard, of Tennes see writes to Commissioner Douglas, transmitting a letter from a Inited States Marshal of Geogia, stating that a man convicted ana sentenced there for making illicit whisky and committed to jail, is at liberty. W hen inquiry was made of the sheriff why the man was free, he cooly replied that he did not propose that any man should lie in jail there simply for making whisky." Is Maynard working to get the writ of habeas corpus suspended in Georgia? Wall papers of all colors, even white, it is stated, contain arsenic in laree quantities. An eminent analytical chem ist of London has recently examined wall papers of many colors, such as dark brown, buff, white, blue, and various del icate shades of gray, drab and mauve, and the results clearly indicated that it is impossible for any one, professional or otherwise, to judge by the eye, whether a paper contains arsenic or not. A writer in the British Medical Journal, who suffered for fourteen years, from arsenical poisoning from this source, says that he has given up having pajwr on his walls, and now is relieved from his inconvenient symptoms. When walla are painted care must be taken in select ing the pigmenU, many of r-hich coutai a arsenic.

Foster Blodgett, who was recently indicted at Atlanta for mal-appropriation of the Georgia railroad funds, in enroute for Washington, intending to contest the seat of Senator Norwood when"Congress assembles. Blodgett 'was here all last winter, and during the special session, but his claims were not admitted by the Republicans in the Senate. The over issue of bonds made by ex- Governor Bullock to the Brunswick and Albany railroad have been returned to the State treasurer. They had been turned over to Mr. Kimball by Governor Bullock, and were hypothecated by the former gentleman. The following are the treasuy balances at the close of business: currency, $656 709.133: coin. $93,416,858 C2; certifi catea, $2,052,790,000. The Postoffice Department decides to exonerate Postmaster Prosser, of Nash ville, on the ground that his offence was committed after the expiration, of his term of office as member of Congress. General Arthur yesterday filed his offi cial bond with the Secretary of the Trea sury as Collector of the Port of New York. General Walker assumed the duties of office at the head of the Indian Bureau yesterday. Senator Scott, of Pennsylvania, and Representative Maynard, of Tennessee, called on the President yesterday and laid before him the evidence taken by the committee recently visiting Florida, and asking a suspension of the writ of habeas corpus in Jackson county, in that State, which the evidence showed to be entirely in the hands of the Ku-KIux. The President did not indicate whether he would issue a proclamation, but Messrs. Scott and Maynard are confident that the evidence would worrant him in doing so. NEW YORK. New Yobs:, November 23. Ex-Comp troller Connolly still occupies rooms at the New Yerk Hotel, with a deputy sheriff for a companion. The deputy sheriff examines each candidate that offers himself as bondsman fast as they appear, and accepts or rejects them. The following gentlemen have so far been accepted: George Hoffman, f 100, 000; Owen MeGaven, i$100,000; Win. 8. Roberts, $100,000; Jos. R. Connolly, $50,000; Chai. M. Connolly, $50,000; Washington R. Connolly, $50,000; Thos. B. Connolly, $50,000. The four last named are nephews of Connolly s. One of the reasons assigned by Connolly for the great difficulty in obtaining bail was that Tweed had been working during the day to prevent responsible persons from offering themselves. The school excitement, which has been agitating the residents of Hunter's Point for some time past, was brought to a climax yesterday by the expulsion of forty scholars, all Roman Catholics, by Mr. Selbury, principal of the school This action was taken with a view of forestalling any further attempt at dis turbance by their objections to the read ing of the Bible in school. Mr. Selbury also acted under authority received di rectly from the School Commissioners. The Grand Duke reviews the fire brigade atone p.m. to-day in Tompkins Square. The great preparations for the naval ball which is to take place this evening are completed. The Duke will spend Thanksgiving day quietly attending servicesjat the Russian chapel in the forenoon. He will leave by special train Sunday night for Philadelphia. He will visit the Navy Yard and review the military, after which a collation will take place at the park. The Grand Jury came into court to day and stated that they were engaged investigating the "ring frauds. The charges are numerous and lengthy, and as the term of the Grand Jury ends on Thursday, they asked if it was pos sible for the Judge to extend the time of the term. The Judge promised a decis ion as early as possible. CHICAGO. Chicago, November 28. Pork pack ing at this point is progressing favora bly, the weather being all that could be desired. Our packers have handled and hung up 18-1,000 hogs thus far thieea son against 121,337 for the same period last year, an increase of 62,CC3 head. The packing at Milwaukee tor this sea son foots up 48,815 against 30,471 bead last year. While the weather at Chicago and eastward is cloudy but not very cold to-duy, Minnesota, Nebraska and the region westward are having a stinging cold snap. At St. Paul the thermome ter indicated four degrees below zere; at O jjaha three above, and at Cheyenne three below. At Helena, Montana Ter ritory, it was intensely cold yesterday thirty degrees below zero in the morn ing and fifteen below in the evening. There were received at Chicago dur ing the past week 2,040,031 bushels of wheat, 1,044, 0 bushels of corn, 27,04 barrels of flour, 104,311 live hogs and 10.295 cattle. Merchants' and jobbers' trade is quite brisk. Orders for goods come in very freely, and there is every propect that the holiday trade of 1H71 will not fall short of that of 1870. NEW ORLEANS. Nxw O bleaks, November 28. The fall meeting of the Metairie Jockey Club commences Saturday next, and the en tertainment will be splendid. The course has been greatly improved. A new feature will be the grand steeple chase on Thursday, December 6. The horses are in fine condition. The total importations from all coun tries during October was $2,000,876 07; of this value American bottoms carried $745,787, and foreign bottoms $l,340,?.'O. The grand jury reported a true bill against J. 3L West, editor of the New Orleans Patriot, accused of libel. . On the subject of a successor to Lieutenant Governor Dunn, the Bulletin has the following Significant article: j "The excitement in political circles is i . . . I growing mot Intense at every moment concerning the issue of the proposed I aion of the Senate on the Cth of De cember next Notwithstanding the as-' surance given by the friends o( Gov ernor Warmoth that his chosen candi date for the Presidency of tho Senate, P. B. S. Pinchbeck, can be elected on the first ballot, an inquiry into the mat ter proves that the muddle grows worse as it progresses. The first consideration of the moment is the first ballot, on which it is claimed by the Warmoth faction that Pinchbeck will receive eigh. teen or nineteen votet, independent of the Democrats, thus securing his elec tion. But this first ballotwill have to be ob tained, and that is exactly where the big fiiht will occur. The Grant faction con tends that theGovernment cannot legally call an extra session of the Senate, which session is inexpedient, unnecessary, and will entail useless additional expendi ture on the part of the State, whose finances now, more than ever, should be carefully nursed. On this line they mean to fight it out in earnest, and when it comes to the worst, they contend that, with the assistance of the Democratic Senators, Pinchbeck has no shadow of a chance." CUBA.' Havana, November 28. The medioal student! of the Royal University last Thursday entered the cemetery and de molished the grave of Gonzalo. " Casto- non. the chaplain who remonstrated with them, was stoned. On Saturday the Governor of Havana visited the Uni versity and demanded the names of the enlnrita. butlall remained silent. The najtfl was turned over to court Several of the students testified, and six mem bers of the class being found guilty were sent to prison. Forty-two others who are suspected of complicity are detained by the court. Sunday night the volun teers assembled in large numbers about the jail where the students were con fined and made loud threats of immedi ate vengeance. The Captain General visited the scene, and by the aid of the officers of volunteers succeeded in dia nersing the crowd. A court martial for the trial of the prisoners was immedi ately convened and is now in session, The volunteers have again assembled about the jail and threaten condign ven- geance upon the students in case the court fails to convict and punish them. MEXICO. Maiamobas, (via Brownsville, Texas,) November 27. The Governor of Tmala- pas calls for a loan of $20,000, to place the State on a war footing. The people oppose the loan. A national guard will be organized at once. Cortina, Jua rez's commander of the line, and the rebel Generals Previno and Guirign had an interview a few days ago at Coral. The former agreed to await the result of the attack at Saltilo, com menced on the Cth instant. Palachias, commander of Mats moras, reports General Rocha, with 4000 gov ernment troops, close to Saltilo. A portion of the government troops at Camargo revolted and disbanded three days ago for want of pay, and because Cortina, the commander, did not pay them after receving money. The commander of Matamoras being isolated, has called on the government for additional troops to sustain him in holding the city. The commander has sent a relief of 400 men, by sea, Irom ... . . Vera Cruz and Tampico. FOREIGN. London, November 28. The condi tion of the Prince of Wales has under gone a decided improvement since yes terday. Towards midnight last night symptoms of a favorable change became evident, and the Prince obtained a little rest, from which he awoke refreshed and strengthened. The hopes of his physi cians are now much more favorable with regard to the ultimate result of their pa tient's illness. The medical bulletin is sued this morning stales that the intensi ty of his symptoms are lessening, and although the physieians hesitate to pro nounce danger past, it is hoped the change which has taken place is an indication that the Prince has experienced the turn of the fever, and is now progressing toward convalescence. The favorable report of the Prince's condition has gone far to relieve the anxiety which has filled the royal household in conse quence of his illness. Her Majesty, who throughout has been untiring in her attentions to the sufferer, and has undergone great fatigue in consequence, has been much comforted and encour aged by the hopeful intelligence. A dispatch received here from Lugern, Switzerland, announces that' Count Girgentt committed suicide in that city to-day. Paris, November 28. Gens. Rossel and Ferre and several Bourgeois, or cit izens convicted of Communism by the Versailles government,' were executed this morning. They were taken from confinersrnt and marched to the place of execution, guarded by a company of troops. On arriving they were placed in front, the troops being drawn up in line a short distance off. It was thought some interposition might be made in fa vor of Rossel, but the prisoners were shot and the execution passed off with out any interference in his behalf. The Court Pardon, to whom were address ed the petitions of the oondemned Com munist, have decided to reject all the appeals with the exception of that of General Lullier, whose prayer has been favorably considered, and also those of three of the women convioted of firing buildings in Paris when the city was about to be occupied by the goveonment forces. Rome, November 28. The Italian Parliament was opened by Victor Eman uel personally, yesterday, amid unpre cedented enthusiasm. Markets. CixriKiATi, November 28. Markets unchanged in price from yesterday. Cotton, flour and grain quiet Nothing doing ia provisions. Receipts of hogs, 11,120; sales light and buyers holding off, with bat few sales, ranging from $4 40 to 4 50. Cut meats unchanged. Whisky steady at 90c. A Tonne iadr describing a noonday rainbow ears: The beauty of the scene through its duration was peculiar and striking- the snow-clad mountains lying back of the brilliant ins band, the cor- nelian sky smiling between the eloads aore it, the naked black trees dripping and glittering with raia drops, and the soft gray rapor Hoatiet upward, fused and wedded the aoid gr.oosji of winter with some of the most cbeenng aspects of delightful summer. Attention, t'liy rather. To the Editor of the Leaser.) Some months since the property-own ers on Hernando road were ordered, by the City Council, to cause sidewalks to be laid down from tho corner of Laltose street and lieruando road to Broadway, on Hernando road, which order was cheerfully complied with except in three or four instances. Now, in justice to those law-abiding citizens, is it not the duty of the city to have constructed a walk from the corner of South and El- lina streets to the corner of LaRose and Hernando? Wo think bo. The aide- walks south of the latter point are worth hut little after we have waded three Hun dred yards through mud chin deep to reach theiri. Let us have the walk by all means, for we are entitled to it. We have a street railway, it is true, but we cannot always ride, (or we are some times in a hurry.
