The Cincinnati Cmvnicrcial speaks of a preacher in that city who "squeezed a large amount of truth into his ser mon." The "Washington correspondent of the Cincinnati Gazette says the Grant and his Cabinet arc annoyed by the uodsation dispatches sent from that city in regard to Cuban andSpanish affairs. The "Washington correspondent of the Chicago Intcr-Occan says "there is abundant evidence of an intention on I ho part of persons variously interested to drive the country into war with Such representative Georgians as Jlcrschcl V. Johnson, Alex. H. Ste phens, Henry L. Bcnning, Martin J. Crawford and Mark Blanford, are for prompt action by the United States (jovcrnnient in the matter of the out rage upon American citizens hy the Cuban authorities. The first named jrmtlcman expresses the opinion that "the pear is ripe and it is time it was plucked." The Georgians appear to favor annexation. Hotel prices in New York have not come down in spite of the falling off in travel. The Windsor, new and elaborately furnished; the Fifth Avenue, the Clarendon, all still chai-ge not less than five dollars per day. The Broad way hotels arc somewhat lower. So say the New York papers. This is the minimum rate for single gentlemen. There aic numerous "extras" which may swell the charges to ten dollars a day; and a single gentleman occupying u bedroom, parlor and bathroom, witf 'c charged at least that for his acoonr niodation alone. TiiE'Golumbns Ga.) Enquirer main tains that the South is poor, uot be -ausc we have less thrift or intelligence than other sections, but because we do n t wisely use our gifts. The profits of our labor go to enrich Europe and tuc -North and est- It is time our ioplo were reflecting seriously upon their vassalage and turning their at tention to ways and means to prevent the outflow of money from our midst. Lot us encourage home production in every possible way, for only by so do ing can we hope to regain our former position of wealth and independence. The New York stock gamblers were buoyed yesterday by a report from Washington that the President and the Secretary of the Treasury would urge Congress to make the forty-four million reserves a portion of our greenba currency. If any action hy Congress be neccssury in the premises, how "mes it that Judge Richardson has al ready issued over nine millions of the frty-four? Over twenty per cent is already out, and less than thirty-five millions remain of this doubtful re source. Whence Richardson acquires his authority for expanding or con 1 racting the currency every day, and for practically negotiating a loan of nine millions unauthorized by Congress is one of the mysteries of our charm ing financial svstcm. The falling off of the revenue will impose upon the Government the ne ssity of securing increased receipts and the New York Tribune states that the opinion held among Treasury ofii rials is. that Congress will be asked to obtain it from the surplus wealth of the country, through a tax upon incomes or in any event, hy imposing additional duties upon imported brandies and wines, or on manufactured spirits at home, through increased internal rev onue tax. The Secretary of the Treas ury stilted recently that he did not know how much additional revenue would be needed, but that a more definite know! edge in that respect would be obtained after the panic had subsided. The Oicenfboro (Ky.) Monitor gives an admirable specific for the present h ird times: "The country needs more c un-bread, hog and hominy, old-fash ioned Democracy, specie and sterling virtue, and less pound-cake, sirloins canvas-backs, Radicalism, rascality. mortgages and modern progress. Last ly and briefly, let everybody and his acquaintances quit croaking and go to work, pay their debts, and when paid make no more of them; keep stone-jugs and store bills out of the house, vote the Democratic ieket always, and the whole world and "rest of mankind' will be made happier, wiser and richer thereby. This is our specific for hard times. Among the indications of the day, it is stated that the Spanish Minister Admiral Palo, has received a telegram from his government, a copy of which lie delivered to Secretary Fish on the 2 5(1 inst., contradicting the report of the hostile manifestations against the United States Minister at Madrid. The telegram declares that Gen. Sickles is treited with consideration and respect and that the intemperance of language of the monarchial press has been promptly silenced by the threat of im mediate punishment. The Minister of the Colonics reports from Havana that the restoration of embargoed property of American citizens is being diligently proceeded with. At the recent meeting in New York of the American Public Health Asso ciation, the subject of "Cholera in the United States in 1S73" was discussed with the aid of maps. Among other things noted was a general coincident of lack of rain with cholera. This hardly agrees, however, with the expe We nee of Nashville. There were 35 deaths in Louisiana, including 232 in New Orleans; 175 in Alabama, at Bir ntinghain and Huntsville; 27 in Arkan sas. all in and around Little Rock; 1S2 in Tennessee; (3:l in Kentucky; 212 in Illinois; 121 in Indianna; 253 in Ohio; I' in West Virginia; 5 in Pennsylvania 2'J in Missouri; 118 in Iowa, and i in Dakotah. The epidemic seems to hav attacked as many different localities in Tennessee as in the whole country be sides, and the number of deaths in Tennessee shows a total nearly as large as all the other States combined. Among our dispatches published this morning is the following: New York, Oct. 25. At the meet ing of the Associated Banks this after noon, a full representation being pres ent, action on the late report of the committee of nine was postponed for sixty days, and the Committee was dis charged. Thewhole subject is.' again referred to a new committee, to be ap pointed. This netfs must carry disappoint ment to all who feel an interest in the financial welfare of the country. For we think there now remains little hope that the Association, to whose action the country lias been looking forward with suspended breath, will inaugurate any reforms at all. This is the second time that they have ixistponed iction. Why this delay? Does the Association wish further time to deliberate upon matters so grave? Or do they think the pro posed reforms too superficial, and wish longer time in order to effect deeper and more radical changes? We have no evidence of any such profound good faith or any such transcendent pru dence on the part of that body. On the contrary, we think there is evidence that the proposed amendments to the articles of association contained too much good faith and too much sincere wisdom to suit the wishes of the specu- ators and stock-gamblers who belong to or control the association. The two most important amendments were these: "1. That payment, of interest upon deposits, either directly or indirectly, be enhrely prohibited. "2. That each bank, while it observes the requirements of the law of Con gress respecting a reserve fund, be re quired to carry at all times an amount of legal tender notes equal to at least fifteen per cent, of its liabilities to the public. These were the measures on which the issue sprung. At the meeting on the 19th inst. the sense of the Associa tion was indirectly ascertained, and as soon as it "was known to be in favor of the former of the above amendments, the chicanery of speculators was set to work to bring about a delay. And the same chicanery, we suspect, effected the further postponement on yesterday, with the hope that folly might again take the place of Avisdom, and apathy the place of good resolu tions. There is little to be expected from a body that is thus capable of be ing dallied with. If, however, the first expressed and best sense of the associa tion do prevail in the end; if the refor mation of prohibiting payment of inter est upon deposits be made, Tve shall cive the association credit for one wise act a pleasure which we now little an ticipate. When the financial tribula tions shall be forgotten, the lessons of practical wisdom which they have taught will be lost in the same oblivion a hi: WE IX EAKXrST? In politics, morals and religion, in difference is the growing curse of the times. The same is true of regard for personal and public health, family training, and the thousand small in dustries practiced by our Tennessee grandfathers and grandmothers. Fifty years ago our people were self-reliant and really independent; they imported next to nothing and never went in debt. We have made some progress in mate rial comforts, in the gratifications of the bod-; but in all the stern virtues that constitute true manhood, we seem to be retroexadincr. Indiffercntism is ac- counted liberality; carelessness is con sidered content; and lethargy is mis taken for happiness. The millenium when politics shall cease to be, which some are anticipating, will never come except with the peace of death to our liberties the peace of despotism. We commend to all dreamers the following article from the Memphis Register: '".New Uepartiu-e papers and so- called 'Independents' sometimes con gratulate themselves and the country upon the dying-out of party antago nism; that party elections are passing awav, and that men will hereatter be elected upon individual and personal merit, regardless ot party amnatiocs; in other words, that party barriers are to be broken down. The be t adminis tration of government this country has ever had smce its foundation to the present time, was when its officers both State and national, from president down to constable were elected during the highest and hottest party excite ment. Never has its administration beui so pure, uncorrapted and incor ruptible, as when there have been two powerful, well-defined and antagonistic political parties. Who has forgotten the grand old times ol Wmggcry and Democracy ? These were fierce party tunes when every inch ot party ground was fought to the bitter end. But what was the result? Did it make miserable presidents, governors (such as Ames), corrupt congress men and thicvinir State officials? In the glorious days of Polk and Clay, Webster and Calhoun midst the highest party times were thieves and plunderers the office holders of the country? Was an honest office holder then the exception to the rule rather than the rule itself? No! the purest and best days this government has ever seen, wis during the existence ot great contendintr parties. The ablest and mo3t honest officers it has ever had were those elected during fierce party conflicts. So it ever will be, when parties are held to a strict accounta bility for the ability, honesty and prob itv of those they elect. We would wel conic back with gladness, the honest and pure days of party politics Then we fiad srrcat .Presidents and Governors all ornaments to their State: Comrrcssmen, whom, proud of their position, no one dared approach with a dishonest proposition; State of ficials, who would have deemed it an everlasting disgrace to appropriate to their own use one dollar oi the peo pie s money. Uod grant that we may again have well defined parties, with officials such as these: The official vote in Massachusetts shows that Gov. Washburn had 72.1S3 votes, William C. Gaston 59,300, Gen Henry K. Oliver, of Salem, the Labor Reform candidate, 301, and all others including Gen. Butler, 399. Thoma Talbot, of Billerica, the Republican candidate for Lieutenant Governor had 77,792 votes, leading Mr. Wash burn 5.G09 votes, while William L Smith, of Springfield, the Democratic candidate received 55,13(i, running be hmd Mr. Gaston 4,z2l. Last year Washburn's maiority was 7i,271 ant Grant's 74,212. This year Washburn' total vote falls 2,091 below his majori ty last year. How many more such victories can the Republicans of Massa chusetts stand? NASHVILLE TIMOJM AND AMERICAN, AN MfDIGNAKT WOSAS. Sometime since Mrs. Marie' Jourdan Westmoreland, late of Atlanta, Georgia, appeared ontherostrum of the Woman's Suffrage Congress m New York, and expressed the hope thai lecturers would be sent Southand promising to furnish' them with letters of intoduction, which would open to them the doors of the pedple of this section. This act of the Georgia authoress was pretty severely criticised by the papers of that State. Mrs. Westmoreland has written a letter in which she claims that these papei-s misrepresented her speech in the Wo man's Congress; He says: "I did not sav I hoped lecturers would be sent throuch the South.. I said that I honed thev would co, and with letters oi introduction wmcn i-.wuum cladlv irivc them. I knew they would have a happy and perhaps a lucrative time, and 1 knew that a few women at east would be dehehted to know that women were accomplishing so much Furthermore, Mrs. Westmoreland adds somewhat bitterly: "Why are these attacks constantly made upon me, and by my own peo ple? Is it because they hate me per sonally? It cannot be tor anything ever did to them, for my house, heart and well-wishes have ever belonged to my people, and an unkind word from theinis always answered oy my rears, is it kind, is it right, is it liberal or charit able for them to try to draw down woman who is trying honestly and by hard labor to support herself and two childrenr Like poor Tray, Mrs. Westmoreland was caught-in. bad company, and has suffered the consequences. A Southern woman, she should never have gone into that queer agglomeration, the Woman's Congress. Having gone there, however, she should not have undertaken to speak for the South, to which thesa Woman Concrresscs arc abhorrent. AUE THE 1-XAAETS INHABITED? Prof. Proctor, the famous English nsh-nnomer. treats lanrelv upon the probabilities of other worlds being in habited, the conclusion being that of the inner planets, Mercury, Venus, the Earth and Mars, our planet only was in condition be inhabited by beings like dwellers upon the earth. Mercury and Venice must be too hot, and Mars tod cold. Of the other planets, their condition was not probably such as to permit of habitation by beings like the dwellers upon our earth. On some of the satelites of Jupiter and Saturn there might possibly be conditions of lijrht and heat suitable for beings or- o-imized like mankind. The lecturer thinks that possibly all other worlds O were, like ours, formed by the Creator with the design of being inhabited at some period. Our world, which has been in existence millions of years, has been inhabited but a very short period comparatively, and it was possible that in time it would be worn, or wasted, or frozen out, so as to be no longer habi table So other worlds, not habitable now, might undergo changes ns the ages go by which wcmld make them so. If we assume there is any consumption of force in running the vast machinery of the universe, then the latent heat that prevents all water becoming snow in the atmosphere, and ice on land, and prevents the congelation of all blood in animals and sap in plants, must be wholly consumed, and all living beings become as hard and lifeless as granite. Granite, and all other minerals, were once probably in a gaseous state, and the long consumption of heat has brought them into their present solid or crystalline condition. In transform ing oxygen and hydrogen gases into water, a prodigious quantity of latent heat has been set free on this planet, and lost by radiation, or in sr-ine other way An escape of a less amount here after by the continuance of the same law, will convert all water into ice, freeze the earth to its core, and render the existence of cither plants or ani mals impossible. Science points to this conclusion. It appears that Ordway, the present Sergeant-at-Arms of the Houseof Rep resentatives, is not to be allowed to re occupy his post without a struggle. Col. A. H. Markland, GeneralAgent of the Postoffice Department for the Wes tern States, and Col. D. W. Munn, of Illinois, are making vigorous efforts to supplant him. And now comes the col ored brother who wishes to bear off the laurels. The Washington correspon dent of the Cincinnati Gazette says: "A colored candidate for Sergeant-at-Arms has appeared from Kentucky in the person of R. A. Green, M. D., of Bowl ing Green. He has issued a circu lar to the members, setting forth that he thinks it about time the 800,000 col ored voters of the country shall be rec ognized. He says of the candidates announced, Mr. Markland was a Colo-" ncl, postofficer, or something of that sort m the army, and has rotated from one office to another; that Dwyer should be sent up Salt river for his successful efforts in, placing Ohio alongside of Kentucky in the late election; that Munn, of Illinois, should be thrown out because his State has had the Pres ident ever since the party was organ ized, and that Ordway is too large a man for so small a place." The New Yorl: World cites the house of Spraguc as an illustration of how protection, like vaulting ambition o'er leaps itself. The Senatorwasof course a protectionist, to prevent foreign prints from competing with those made by himself and brother. Like the hatching chicken he fed in and from the" egg in which he was incased. So he never sought the outlets for his goods that he could have found in In dia, China, South America and the Levant. A fiian manufacturing by the tens of millions should never depend on any one country, which may any year be overtaken with short crops or a panic; such large dealers should natu rally be free traders. But the Spragues put all their eggs in one basket, and that basket got badly smashed. The courts do not appear to have much mercy on railroads whose con ductors forcibly eject and maim passen gers upon the violation of any regula tion. S. McKinlay, who was forcibly excluded not long ago from a Chicago and Northwestern car reserved for ladies and gentlemen with ladies, and received severe injuries, has been awarded $12,000 damages by the Linn county (Iowa) court, but the case will be appalled. THE INDIAN STEAE. The excessive outlay under the pres ent administration for Indians has no parallel in the history of the govern ment, even when Indian wars onaiarge scale were carried on in Florida and elsewhere. By way of illustrationvthe New York Sun says? Tf in rvnlv necessary to compare the first four years of Mr. Lincoln with the first four of Wen. wane oucu a, -comparison admits of no political prejn- dtce, and only aeaia wui mu uij -.uio furnished in thcTreasuryreports.

It is no secret that this vast increase of Indian expenses has been brought about by deliberate Iraud, corruption and conspiracy, to rob both the red man and the Treasury. At the very last session of Concress a large appro priationwas made for a tribe which has no existence at all, except by false personation at a frontier agency, and through the collusion of rogues who divide the plunder. Mr. Harlan stood up in the Senate with characteristic effrontery, and as chairman of the Indian Committee, carried that and other money grants m the same bill, every dollar of which rep resented a willful fraud. By these shameful processes which are perfectly understood, party organization has been maintained, crime condoned, and christian statesmen and christian bankers enriched. The time has come to tiy honesty in public life and econo my in carrying on the viovernment. South Carolina paid for public printing last year 5331,945 66, and left an unsettled balance on the same account of $116,035. The Legislature may not know how to read, but they certainly hold the art of printing m high estimation. The amount checked out of the Treasury by the Secretary of the Navy on account of the expenditures for fit ting out war vessels since the capture of the Yirginius, has already reached three millions of dollars.
