ISC Louis BepublicanJ It is not at all surprising that Republican journals exhibit re markable sensitiveness respect ing the letter and spirit of the civ il service regulations. It might be expected that their anxiety on the subject, now that a Democratic ad ministration is in office, would cor respond, in some measure, with their indifference, when the ap pointing power was in Republican bands. Their enthusiasm in the cause of civil service reform seems have been wonderfully stima lated since the control of the gov ernment has changed hands. The tenare-of-office-law and the provis ions respecting civil service exam inations were in force for some time prior to the election of Mr. Clevelaud, but a Republican ad ministration paid very little atten tion to them. Irrespective of these laws the whole federal civil service was turned into a vast po litical machine, handled and direc ted iu aid of partisan purposes. We heard little or nothing theu about the limitations on the up poiuting power of the Tresidcut, or the distribution of appoint ments on the basis of personal fltuess alone. All departments of the Uoverunieut, not excepting the judicial, were filled with Re publican "workers," and the bcue flciaries of federal patronage in the various stages were almo6t uniformly selected on the ground of party usefulness. It is fair to conclude, therefore, that the clam or now made iu certain quarters touching the sacreduess of civil- servioe regulations does not spring from any very exalted motives. Its true origin is a desire to keep Republicans iu office, notwith standing the political revolution of last fall and to manufacture grounds of, complaint against President Clevelaud's adminietra tion by conBtautly representing that it .s disregarding the law. This fact should be thoroughly understood by citizens generally. Reiterated misrepresentations of en mislead public opinion, and at the outset of Mr. Clevelaud's term, it is important that there should be no apprehensions of his motives and acts. He means to respect, to enforce all existing laws, but he means, also, to carry out the will of the people as ex pressed at the late election, so far as possible xne corruption or the civil service grew up and reached its climax during Republi can rulo, nnd as it pervaded all branches of the Government, the work of correction and purification must n'eccessarily be slow. Ih the meantime the stories and reports put in circulation by Republican Journals, at to evasions of the civil service laws by President Cleve land and his colleagues should be regarded as wholly without foun dation, as misrepresentations mnde for political effect. Removals from office may be expected, for the public service was and crowded with "offensive parti sans,n but all removals will be for good cause and iu the Interests of honesty and efficiency. After nearly three months of close at tentionto executive duties, tnclud ing the selection and appointment of many important officers, Pres ident Cleveland enjoys, not only the confidence and respect of the great party that put him In office. but of all fair-minded citizens out. side of it. In weeding out the of fensive partisans, put in office by his predecessors, it may be expect ed that the radical managers will denounce his patriotic industry and howl over the pangs caused by his pruning knife. All this is inevitable, the Republicans have so amalgamated themselves with the offices that separation can on ly be effected by something in the shape of a surgical operation : an operation, however, necessary for the national neaith. When our patriotic citizens hear the squall of the sufferers they should con gratula'e themselves that the great work of cutting out political evils Is earnestly in progress, and that the louder the noise the more effective, probably, will be the re suits.

A number of inquiries have been received at the Post Office De partment as to whether the order issued by Gen.

Ex (Brooklyn Eagle. Last fall there appeared in sev eral out of town newspapers an advertisement iu the following terms : "An elegantly designed casket, containing one hundred presents sent to any address ou receipt of ten postage stamps. Apply to II., Chicago." II. is cer tuinly the inventor of a very in genious device, for in return for your ten stamps he sent yon a box of pins. Perhaps the best of all the pret ty cheats effected by means of ad vertising was announced to the public in ths following advertise ment, some ten years ago : "Watches, Fifty Cents. This article is a true, genniue time piece for the pocket, of ordinary watch size, in highly finished silver case, white enameled face, gilt let tered, brass movement, horizontal construction, neat and flat, with key complete; all manufactured of the best material. Froe by mail, securely packed. Each one is warranted for two years, and Is adjusted and cleaned at the end of the first year without charge. We allow three months' trial, and if by then the most complete sat isfaction is not givcu, tho money will be returned." The outside is a time-piece, for it is a sun dial. It is a highly gilt case, I. e., iu au envelope of gut paper. It is neat and flat, and it has a white enameled face, with gilt letters, tor it is merely white card, with gilt letters printed on it, and the key is a small paper of instructions. Lastly, it may safely be warranted for two years, If yon do not bum it tu two days. There were a great many venders of Mto many a quiet home these watches, all using the same advertisement ; but after they had somewhat exhausted the demand, one of their number, a man of striking geuius, put out on adver tisement to this effact : "Why give fifty cents ror a wretched construction of string and cardboard, when for two dol lars yon can have a genuine time keeper in gilt case, with flat, white gilt lettered dial, horizontal move ment and key t" He bad au Immense number of replies, and he sent to the appli cants precisely the same article that he and the others had been previously sending out for fifty cents. The frauds which are perpctra ted at mock auctions are too well known to noed auy notice here, but there Is an analogous class of frauds which have scarcoly re ceived the attention due to their merits. You may constantly see advertisements of this kind : "A bonus of f 100 will be given by the advertiser to any one who will advance him (200 for six months. A piano worth $"00 will be deposited as security for the payment of the advance." Well, on a first glance of such advertisement you take it to mean that a distressed mortal is so much in the want of money as to bo ready to borrow it at a very ex orbitant rate of interest; but it does not mean anything of the kind. It means that he wants to sell a piano, and that if he can get two hundred dollars from you be will make a very good bargain by leaving that valuable article in your hands. Some time ago an advertisement appeared in a London paper which ran as follows : "How to make ton dollars per week by the outlay of two dollars and a half." The plan to secure this profit was promised on the receipt of thirty postage stamps. The reply ran thns : "First purchuse one huudrcd weight of large sized potatoes, which may be obtained for the sum of one dollar, then purchase a large basket, which will cost say another dollar; then buy fifty cents' worth of flannel blanketing, and this will comprise your stock in trade, of which the total cost is 12.50. A large-sized potato weigs about half a pound, conse qnently there are two hundred and twenty-four potatoes in a hun dred weight. Take half the above quantity of potatoes each evening to a baker's and have Richmond, June 2. Miss Julia them baked. When properly JacksOn. daughter of the late cooked put them into your basket, "Stonewall" Jackson, was married well wrapped up iu the flannel to this evening to Mr. Wm. E. Chris keep them hot, and sally forth and tian. of this city. The church was offer them for sale at two cents each. Numbers will be glad to purchase them at that price, and you will be able to sell half a bun dred weight every evening. From the calculation made below you will see that by that means yon will be able to earn ten dollars per week. The best plan is to fre- agance, when be himself was a quent the most crowded thorough fares, and make good use of your OFFICERTJLES.
