Presidential Prognostication. The New York Herald, dropping for once its political generalities and vague theorizing, dives into Presidential facts and figures. Ia the face of an evident leaning for firaut and the Republicans, which it has taken no pains to conceal, its figures and calculations, which are very plausible, would surely land a Demo crat in the Presidential chair. It gives the Democrats eighteen States, with 153 electoral votes ; the Republicans are credited with thirteen States, re presenting 95 electoral votes ; and six States with CD votes are set down as doubtful. When it is stated that New Jersey, Con necticut, Texas and Pennsylvania are among the doubtful, it will he very easy to figure up a Democratic triumph. Six electoral votes added to those the Herald concedes to the Democrats is all that i: required to make a majority of all Without going further, who supposes that New Jersey will not be aati Repub lican in 1S72 ? Tlie to 111 Ins Campaign. The imminent danger now hanging over the country lies in the congression el enactments known as the Ku Klux and Bayonet Election laws. Under the former, the Presidential aspirant can pro claim martial law in any S:ato or section at his own discretion, superceding the civil authorities and preventing all elec. tions whatever. Under the latter enact ment, he can surround the polls with bayonets and secure as overwhelming a majority as Louis Napoleon proclaimed only a few months before his dethrone ment. Whether or not a majority of the American people will endorse the maoy and alarming "departures of Kadicalisin from the simplicity of republican insti tutions, is one question. Another, prior, and more important question is: Will the majority be allowed to pass their opinion on the present dynasty? In other words, shall we be granted free and fair elections? for such are the dis cretionary powers lodged by Congress in Grant, that the matter practically resol ves itself into a concession or grant. Although the laws we epeak of are so worded a3 to spply to the whole country, there is little occasion for immediate alarm as concerns the North. Gov. Geary appears fully determined to keep the closely contested field of 1 ennsyl- vania clear of Federal troops. The same may bo expected in New York. The immediate danger lies rather in the South, against which sections theee odious Congressional enactments were iu reality directed. An important work before us is to so speak and act that there shall be no rea sonable pretext for military interference in the elections in the South. Some may say if we cannot speak and act as we plca?e when we have no hostility, it would be as well for U3 to be under an imperial government. We say to all such that while we are under a govern ment republican in form, it is in sub stance and effect a despotism, a despot ism which will be riveted hopelessly upon us, if the Grant party should succeed in the next election. We have no appre hension that aDy portion of the South ern people entertain any feelings of dis loyalty to a republican constitutional government. But we have in the party, sustaining the present presidential in cumbent an unscruplous foe, who resorts to any misrepresentation which may effect his purpose in deceiving the popu lar mind of the North as to the aims and purposes of the South. We can give dignity and strength to the Democratic organization by laboring in harmony for its success, while the freedom of elections and the perpetuity of genuine republi canism are in doubt. Jefferson vs. Grant. Harper Magazine contains the fol lowing extract from a letler of Thomas Jefferson : "The public will never be made to be lieve that an appointment of a relative is made on the ground 01 merit alone, un influenced by family views; nor can they ever see with approbation offices, the dis posal of which they intrust to their Presi dents for public purposes, divided oat as family property. Mr. Adams degra ded himself infinitely by his conduct on this subject, as General Washington had done himself the greatest honur. With two sueh examples to proceed by. I should be doubly inexcusable to err. It is true that this places the relations of the President in a worse situation than it he were a stranger, but the public good, which cannot be effected if its confidence be lost, requires this sacrifice." Considering how thoroughly the Har pers' concern is wedded to Grant, as is constantly shown in their Weektg, the foregoing must have been published in their magazine either as a sharp curtain lecture, or as proof that Thomas Jeffer son was an old fool, and that Grant is the paragon of statesmen. Whatever may have been the design in quoting Jefferson on this subject, the effect can hardly be favorable to Ulysses. People generally will think that if Mr. Adams, degraded himself infinitely, Grant has degraded himself far more than infinite ly, if such a deeper depth of degradation be possible. The Government Printing Office at Washington, already the largest printing establishment in the world, is being ad ded to by additional buildings that will increase its capacity tjne-third. COU1R Dubious About the Xeiv Depar ture. The Detroit Post thinks the indica tions justify the fear that the Republican divisions ia Pennsylvania and Massa chusetts will help the democrats to a triumph this fall. It takes a philoso phical view of the situation, however, in the following reflection : But a Democratic victory in these two States, viewed from a Republican stand point, is not to be deeply deplored. It ueeds but two or three Democratic vic tories to sei that party wild with excite ment. "A successful campaign this Fall would briog the real sentiment of the party to surface. The "new depar ture" disgnUe would be flung off. The party would reel with the iutoxication of triumph, nd its language expose the violent passions which are now partially choked doWn, and are waitiog only for opportunity to find expression in words and condufct. The reactionary influence of a Deuiicratic victory upon the Demo cratic patty this Fall would secure the Presidencj beyond peradventure to the Republic-las next year. W hftt a world of uneasiness tbis."new depm tftTL' l33;.ness lecms to te giving the radical saints, and how eagerly they seem to de'ude themselves with the hope (hat it is 1 disguise, and how keen they are to bewre to have it thrown off, and all that. Now, this new departure is nothing more than a wise conclusion to accept the constitution as it is, or at least not to permit the discussion of what is past be nude the issue between the tax payers of tho country and the rascals who are robbing them at Washington aud conspiring to turn our republican governmet into a central despotisms. If the new departure is not a big thing why ore the rads so dreadfully uneasy about it ? Male Gossips. There is moro of truth than of poetry in the following, cut from the New York Tribune : The nuaazines are a very fair index to what cultured people relish as mental food, and it is an odd fact that one third of the articles in the present month's issue are made up of personal gossip, written by men for men. A glance over the newspapers, too, will show, outside of the merely delicately seasoned dishes prepared lor feminine readers, how much is reserved for the delectation of the (once) stronger sex, that deserves no other name than scaudal taken raw and undiluted with any proportion of decen cy. Are wo tLeu becoming a race of gossips? Is it Mrs-. Ikhello who has lost her occupation, and is her lord to take it up in lieu of his political rights? To prove that there is danger of such a result wo need only follow the bearing of most political speeches and editorials. Wheu a man achieves success enough to obtain office, or a chance of it, it is not hispriuciples or integrity that is im pugned or defended, but his personal habits. Whether be has led the ad-vsdM-t . thought ot bin country for a quarter of a century matters little, if it cau be proved that he is "dogmatic and crusty in greeting his friends." Does his father drabble his huuff on his shirt and say, "I seen" aud ''Idonelf' Has he auv absorbing fancy lor dogs, or was he ever seen in a cock pit? Did he in tend to become a sutler or a grocer at a certain date so many years ago? What arehis wile's habits, and is it true that she hasher dresses made by Worth? These ire the questions which a hun dred of the clan Jenkins perpetually sniff and nose about the back doors of public bouses to find answers for, which will bo published for tens of thousands of readers to gloat over, from senators at their desks to the Joe Biglers in the grocery. How long ago was it that Beatrice told us that "men were turned into tongues, and trim ones, too; he is now as valiant as Hercules who jmly fashions a lie and swears to it." A thousand men can give date and place for these petty personal matters for tou who can explain intelligently the fundamen tal differences between the great political parties. In fact, to such an extent has this rage for gossip spread, that no con sideration of party success will seal the mouth of the man who rolls a delicate tidbit of scaudal under his tongue which concerns one of his own political lead ers. Women in their gossipping days had an old warning for the bird never to soil her own nest, but men are quite im partial in their disregard of such nice distinctions. Den Dutler Swims for Ills Life. From the Troy Whig. A most unpleasaut rumor was in cir culation in Newburyport, Massachusetts, on Saturday. It was reported that Gen eral B. F. Butler, the cold-water can didate for the Presidency, had reached another world instead of the W'hite IIom through his intense enthusiasm for tb element of which he has become the champion against the allied hosts in J Massachusetts who insist upon tneir drop of beer and other beverages usually dispensed in that State under great secrecy and phvsicians' prescriptions. Later advices bring the truth. The General iodulged in a sail down Boston Harbor in a pleasure yacht, tho excursion being a strictly temperance one of course, aud by some accountable mishap fell over board. Owing to a singular peculiarity of his optical organs, while he thought he was swimming for both shores, he was directing his course directly for the bottom of the sea, and would never have awaken ed to a fair sense of his mistake if an en thusiastio disciple of Father Matthew had not dived and brought him back to his friends. Those who saw his pro gress said that he was working with about equal industry to make Halifax and Long Branch, and was swimming with so much energy in these separate directions that he would inevitably have split himself into two parts in his im practicable attempts, had it not been for the unfortunate interposition of the brave mariner who saved him. A PAPEtt tells about a girl who hated her suitor to such an extent that, when he called to see her on Sunday evening, she threw both arms about his neck aud squeezed him almost to death. The youth was so alarmed that he didn't call again until the next evening. Western Emigration. The overcrowded condition of all our large cities has long been a subject of anxious thought on the part of those who love their fellow-men, and many have been the plans suggested to enable all to live and prosper; yet we believe none has had more advocates or more real recommendations than Western emi gration. There, all the benefits of free dom and plenty beckon to the weary, heart-sick and starving denizen of the city's slums to enjoy them; nature's bounties are scattered with lavish hand on every side ; and every side aud every earthly good is within the grasp of all who will but labor for them. The broad prairies and boundless forests, teeming with the untold riches of a virgin soil, lie waitiog to be improved by the hand of the husbandman aud the mechanic. A thousand infant cities are to be built upon this imperial domain; millions of acres are to be cultivated; all the prime necessaries of life are to be had for the production; health, competence, happi ness and long life 6tand ready to shower their blessings upon them and yet, with the strange preversity of human nature, hundreds of thousands of the poor and oppressed who throng the highways and byways of the cities persist in struggling alnnrr utrainirif everv . nerve lor a bare subsistence, living from hand to mouth at best, often unemployed or months, and not uufrequently the ob jects of grudging charity, wbilo their children, for want of leisure or inclina tion to attend the schools, grow up in the most heathenish ignorance and vice. Perhaps it may be said that the life of the pioneer is a hard one, very fre quently a rough one. We do not deny this; but the finest specimen of daring, independent, self-reliant Americans we have ever met were horn on the frontier men who were ready at a moment's notice to shoulder the rifle in defense of home and country, or take up the weap ons of reason to argue a knotty poiDt of law, religion or politics; nor were they for that reason the less capable of doing a fair day's work in the harvest-field or the work shop. But even supposing them generally rude and untaught, are are they not immeasurably superior, with their well-developed bodies and healthy minds, to the bulk of the city 'syouog men, the children of the very poor, in whose blood the germs of disease and death are early seen, or in whose minds the seeds of vice and disposition are scattered broad cast producing in after years the dread harvest of mortality and sin? The advantages offered by emigration westward are manifold and great. Iu growing up with a community, men and women enjoy more opportunities for per sonal advancement and the acquisition of wealth than are possible to those who settle in cities and the older and more populous districts. There is, we might say. almost absolutely no chance for the noor man with a family who seeks his 'residence in a city, having nothing but the labor of his hands to depend upon. This may not appear so evident to those who have not studied the subject, but all experience proves the fact, and every observant business man will verify the assertion. Even with capital and credit at his back, it is not an easy matter for tbe Dew-comer to auccced in building up a large connection in a populous city, for the reason, among others, that every avenue of business enterprise is already fully occupied, and it is only by the exercise of the most sleep less enterprise and brilliant talents that he can hope to gain prominence among his active and vigilant competitors. The same principle holds good among me chanics. Those who are well-known and prized for their skill and reliability are generally fully employed at remunerative salaries, but there is seldom a vacancy for a stran ger. Among laboring men, however those who have no trades, but must gain a livelihood as best they may by the per formance of the most ordinary manual labor the case is still worse. There is always some one ready to underbid them and to take the bread out of their own and their families' mouths, and we risk nothing in saying that thou sands of this class rise every morning in the year not knowiug where or how they are to obtain the means of keeping the wolf from the door during the day. To this class do we more particularly ad dress our advice, which is: pack up your families; get as many in like circum stances as you can to join you ; sell out, if you must, your household goods to ob tain the means, and go West go West go West I Custom House Perquisites. There are some very efficient officers serving under the Collector of the Port. Not long ago two Custom house Inspect ors were loafing around a dock in Ho boken. Suddenly it began to rain, and these virtuous officers were without um brellas. At this juncture a German em igrant appeared on the scene, his ele phantine proportions sheltered by a huge silk parachute. First Official "You dirty fat loafer, what are you doing with that umbrel ler?" German "Veil, can't you see mit your own eyes?" Second Official "Is that silk?" German "Yaw." First Official "Well, there's 60 per cent, duty on eilk umbrellers, eo you can't take that away." The umbrella was seized. Inspectors have been known to take a pair of boots from one emigrant, a half-dozen hand kerchiefs from another, and a meer schaum pipe from a third. These men are very efficient on a wardrobe seizure. The champion inspector is an official who seized three canary birds belonging to a German emigrant. New York Sun. Poor Weak Women. Miss Susan Nippers, who lives in a Bmall tenement, a lone woman, was quite "fiustrated" the other morning by an earlj call from a bachelor neighbor. "What do you come here after said Miss Nipper's. "I came to borrow matches, he meek- ly replied. "Matches 1 That's a likely story. Why don't you make a match? I know what you come for," said the exasperated old virgin as she backed the bachelor into a corner. "You, come to hug and kiss me almost to death ! But you shan't without you're the Btrongest, and the Lord knows you are 1" Jons Slidell, formerly Confederate Minister to Trance, is dead. NO. 31. THE KEXT GREAT WAR. A Glance Into tlio Dim Future. Are war clouds again gathering in the East? The note of war ia sounded in the Edinburg Review. "A struggle is impending between Russia and Austria; it is inevitable sooner or later; it can not be averted. So alarming a predic tion will certainly divert attention "from France and Germany to the movements of those two Eastern powers. Both have been actively engaged in the reor ganization of their armies and though Russia has had the advantage of time, tho declarations made by the Austrian war minister this week as to the colassal array which, under the new military sys tem, he could place in the field, was not without significance and purpose. Aus tria, however, clearjy meditates no ag gression, not even upon her late assail ants, Germany and Italy, still less on Russia. Whence then, the danger? "Russia makes no secret of her desire to encroach on her neighbor and expand her influence abroad by force of arms to make use of a propaganda for this pur pose founded on a theory of race, to ar ray the Selave against the Magyar and the Anstrio." Russia, according to the same authority, has resolved upon a cam paign wholly different from that which 1 . . . . ... 1 . fTL . culminated in the unmean aisaster. ma opening of the Black Sea to her fleet is against, or at most a strategic opera tion, to divert attention from the grand fortified quadrilateral in Poland, whence, on the completion of the Russian scheme of military re-organization, Russian gen erals are "to advance on central Europe without risk to the internal peace of the country," thus bringing into practioal realization the assertion that "the Eas tern question can alone be eolved at Vi enna in a Russian sense." Are Russian intentions here belied? Too many facts combine in support of these conclusions to remove all distrust. The Porte, for the moment, is in favor at St. Petersburg, because Turkey is not first to be assailed, and a Tuuro Austrian alliance alliances being the great dread of the Czar might interpose an impassible barrier to the Russian advance, Germany ia soothed by the presence of the Czar at Ems. England is ignored. Yet Russian gen erals are unostentatiously manoeuvring their 650,000 men on the western border, while Russian statesmen are exerting their utmost to avert a combination of powers against their designs, and to ex tinguish the Western states the embers of the eastern policy which was doomed by the crowning humiliation of the black Sea conference. Wretchedness In England. The condition of the children employ ed in the brick yards in England has been brought before Parliament ny iora fchaftesbury, who proposes to exiena 10 them the protection of the factory acts. According to these acts no child under the age of eight years may be employed in any handicraft, no child under thir teen years may be employed for more than six and a half hours a day, and no one under eighteen years, nor any wo man may be employed for more than twelve hours a day. The brick yards, however, have hitherto been exempt from these provisions although nothing can te more oppressive and revolting than the condition of the children who are emnloved in them, and the kind of work they have to perform. About 30,000 young persons varying in age from three and a half to seventeen, are engaged in toil from fourteen to sixteen hours a day, carry on their heads lumps of clay weigh ing 40 pounds from the clay heap to the table on which the bricks are made. Lord Shaftesbury mentioned, among other cases, a child eight years old who carried forty-three pounds weight of clay on his head an average distance ef fit teen miles daily and worked seventy three hours a week. One of the in spectors of factories says that a child ten years old will be required to remove three and a half tons of clay a distance of forty yards daily, traversing fourteen miles in the course of his or her task. Lord Shaftesbury described the poor creatures from personal observation as themselves almosttransformed into lumps of clay tottering about half naked under their burdens and compelled to enter places so hot and burning that he found it impossible to stay there. The physi cal results are necessarily bad, but the moral atmosphere of the brick fields is even more appalling, men, women, and children being brought down to a point of degradation and suffering like the beasts of the field. The motion was warmly supported by the Bishop of Lon don and Lord Morley promised to in troduce into he Factories Act Amend ment bill, now before the House, a clause providing that no girl under- the age of sixteen and no boy under ten should be employed in a brick field under any cir cumstances. An Imperial Republic. The. correspondent of the London Times says about the French Govern ment: 4,The present republic is identical in all respects with the empire, excepting that the present Emperor has a seat in the chamber, which he rarely ecnpipg, and is called the 'CKefdu Pouvior Exec tij: Probably if he were to try to con vert the imperial system over which he nmtiilw into a renublic he would pro duce a revolution. So far as the Chief of the State is concerned, he has mani fested the utmost sagacity in leaving the ex-Emperor's handiwork untouched. I am only anxious that no misapprehension should exist in England as to the form of government which France at present enjoys. There is no reason, because the style and title of the Government have been changed in this country, that the British public should be under the delu sion that it implies any corresponding change in substance. Experience is dailyproving that the form which suits it best is the form under which it is now governed, and has been for the last twen ty years. Idleness is the badge of gentry, the bane of body and mind, the nurse of naughtiness, the step-mother of disci pline, the chief author of all mischief, one of the deadly sins, the cushion upon which the Devil chiefly reposes, and a great cause not only of melancholy, but of many other diseases ; for the mind ia naturally active ; and if it be not occupied about some honest business, it rushes into mischief or sinks into mel ancholy.

Drenaon Spring's Correspondence Cincin nati uommcroiai.j While recalling the war period, I am reminded that one of the most familiar. Iy known among guerrilla fighters ia Kentucky, was Colonel George M. Jcs see, who led a troop of wandering cav alry. The chief tins laid at tho door of his company himself, however, were sins of commission in Union horseflesh, I believe. His home is about four miles north cf Newcastle, and, from a photo, graph shown me to-day, he would ecem a kindly, bimplo hearted man enough, but he is 6&id to be irresistibly fascinat ing among the ladies. Ifo was a mem ber of the Kentucky Legislature in his youth, by the way but since tho war has lived quietly on his farm. One of his adventures, just after President Lin. coin's first election, seems good enough for recollection, and it is because of this that I allude to him. Late in 1S60 there was in this part of Kentucky a deeply fixed apprehension of an uprising of slaves against their masters, and one of Jesse's friends, his nearest neighbor, named Tom Force, having a Urge num. ber of negroes, was especially fearful. Jessce, knowing hia neighboi's weakness, thought be would give him a shake with a practical joke. One eveuing, after sunset, therefore, he approached Force' house from behind, disguised in ragged clothes, his head wrapped in a bandanna, with face and feet properly blacked, a bridle upon his arm, and perched himself on a fence between the house aud an ad- joiniox cornnoia. r oree seeing nim there was frightened, but oraerea Lim t go away. The pretended strange ucgro answered impudently, and sail he was "ewine when he pleased," but presently cot down, and started off. Foreo tLeu . . 1 t i took courage ana asaea mm wnerc u was going. "I's gwino 'bout my busi ness : vou'd better 'tend to your'n." This, in a negro, looked ominous. Tho next day Foree went around among hia neighbors, telliug them of the appear ance of this strange negro, and prophe- . fri . r 11 sying an insurrection, ins lowuwiug evening Jessee reappeared in tho samo disguise, at about the same place on l 0 ree'a fence. The latter, greatly fright ened, told him if ho didn't go away he'd shoot him. "D n you, shoot if you want to," answered the negro, boldly ; "you 11 una l can tnooc, too. You better 'member white man's rule'a 'bout over in dese parts. Masta Lincum and do cullud folks is gwine to take 'fairs in deir bans in dis State pretty soon now." Then, after a few minutes, ho disappeared again into the cornfield. Fo ree feared to follow him aloui but get ting his pistols and horse, set off to alarm his neighbors, a little squad of whom started to bunt the rcateniog; negro. Jessee had been wilTlng to let them trace him, and somewhat reckless ly allowed them to overtako and ap proach him. Ilewas ordered Jj Btop, but paid no heed, whereupon Le Qp fired at by one of the party. lie still refused to stand, and moved ahead u the dark, when he was fired upon again. This time he fell, shot through the neck and seriously wounded, when, being recog nized, he had to be carried home, and lay for several weeks in peiil of his life. Of course the laugli was ou umvui rwicc, but Jessee could hardly eujoy it. By the way, the member of the party who shot Jessee was a young fellow named Nutall, a nephew of the celebrated Ken tucky Judge who once adiourned his court, at Frankfort, in oaler that tho honorable body might eee tho elephant ford the iventucity river. r-, i- Rlotera Breaking up a Frnjer Meeting. From the New York Sin. At Bowery and Chapel sftVets, in tho Twelth Waid of Newark, is a small chapel in which services are held by the Methodist. Last summer ta worship pers were several times interfered with by rowdies, and at one time Gen. Theo dore Runyos was compelled to call upon the Chief of Police to protect the wor shippers. From time to time since then the congregation has been interfered with, but on Sunday night the outrage reached a point beyond endurance. Du ring a prayer meeting in the chspcl, a gang of Oxford street desperadoes, ma ny of whom are persons of mature years, gathered around the house, and by shout ing and yelling blasphemy and ribald songs, disturbed the worshippers, and almost drowned the Toice of the speaker, f. pi..inn tttph nha was ereatly 1UI. .-j.--, ,,11 alarmed lost violence should be done. lie continued the services, However, hoping that the crowd would cease their annoyance and difperse. But not so; they sent into the chapel a crowd of small boys, who took seats and at a giv en signal stamped and ran out of the room in a body. Notwithstanding this the brave band continued to worship. Seeing that they could not break up the services in that way. the roughs threw off their coat, rolled np their sleeves and entered tho chapel, as they declared to "clean out tha d n heretics entirely."

The ap pearance and actions of the scoundrels showed that they were prepared, and anxious to find the least excuse for a riot. A number of determined men have volunteered to attend the chapel services hereafter armed and ready to fire upon the rioters. In the meantime the Police Department will protect the worshipers.
