So little i . i. j did he exert himself that I could ao4 believe the people at the rim of the cir cle could hear, but I was wrong.

Ilotv Turkish liable are Trea ted. A Mrs. Harvey, who has been travel ing in Turkey, and visiting harems, gives the following account of the manner in which new born babies are there treated: Soon after their birth they are rubbed down with salt and tightly swaddled iu the Italian fashion. The pressure of these bandages is often so great the cir dilation becomes impeded, and incision and scarifications are then made on the hands, tcet and spine, to let out what the Turkish doctors and nurses call "the dead blood." The unhappy little creature is only occasionally released from its bonds, and never thoroughly washed until the sacred month of thirty days has expired, wheu it is taken with its mother to the bath. No wonder that the sickly and ailing sink under such treatment and that the mortality among infants should he frightful. Tite I'ncerlalutiefl of Wealth.

The Territorial election in Utah, if the Salt Lake Tribune is to becvedited. was nothing short of a fraud aud a farce. Men, women, children, aliens and non-voters were allowed to deposit their ballots without challenge, or iu spite of challenge. In the city, bishops of the Mormon Church led to tbe polls girls of Clteen or sixteen years of age, and offered them ballots, which were accepted by the judge of the elec tiou, and deposited in the ballot-box. Hundreds of votes from aliens were re ceived when the ballots of American born citizens were refused. The Liberals were snubbed and opposed in every pos sible way, but nevertheless made a very fair turnout and testified ia a remarkable manner to their unity of purpose in sus taining good men when once in the field. It was hoped that the Church party would bo magnanimous enough to ac cord to their opponents' the privilege of appointioz one of the judges of the elec tion in each precinct, but such was not the case ; and the vote polled, number ieg nearly 4,000, is of itself sufficient evidence to prove that many hundreds voted who were not, ia the eye of the law, justified electors. The llarrisburg Patriot says : "Gen eral Hancock is reported to be opposed to his own nomination for President for the follewinir reasons: He thinks that Viv thf timo the American neorde cet through with Grant they will not want v . - - - i K r: I another soldier President for a gene :ou. COURIMM. From the Lexington Observer & Reporter. Do You Accept? When a man tells you that he can eee no difference between the National De mocracy, which, as an orpanizatiou, ap proves and accepts the principles of the New Departure and the Radical party which is everywhere fipbtiug to preveut that acceptance, you may rest assured, either, that he speaks without the requi site knowledge and proper re-flection, or, that he meditates some treachery to the preat party which he thus maligns ; for it is s natural inference that if a man can see "no difference" between two parties, he would as soon act with the one as the ether. But we shall assume, for the present, that gentlemen whose perspicac ity in this matter is no signally at fault, beinp momentarily confused by a misap prehension of the facts, have merely yielded to a natural infirmity, in uttering speech without knowledge. A-few words j by way of correction aud instruction may not be unprofitable. The Virpiuia press has repeatedly claimed, since the announcement of the Dayton Departure, that the principles of the "new movement" received their first practical application in the State of Yir tfiuia. They had received formal ex pre?sion durinp tbe year 1308. iu what is known as tho Walker platform, and upon this platform as a declaration of principles the Conservatives of Virginia achieved a splended triumph saving the State from the evils sub-equetitly inflict ed on her sister States by ignorant and vicious legislation. Will it be said that the Virginians are Radicals? The Dayton platform adopted last May while it accepts the Xllltb, XIYth aud XVth Amendments as a settlement, iu fact, of all the issues of the war. ex pressly declares that the so called Ku Klux Bill was enacted for no other pur pose thau to "e-tablish a military dts poticm, and perpetuate the present ad minUtration without regard to the will of the people," "revolutionary and dan gerous iu uature." in direct conflic with the spirit and letter of the Coutitu'ioti. and "with the amendments whiih it pre tends to enforce." Is this Radical doc trine? The Ohio Democracy iu convention at Columbus, "denouncing t he extraordina ry means" by which the amendments were brought about, accepts them a "accomplished ficts," aud declares them tn be "oo louper political issues" before the people. Is it considered prod Radi cal doctrioe to "denounce" the uucouati tutional methods of procedure through s j which these amendments became apart I of the organic law I Gen McCook, the Democratic candi date for Governor of Ohio, is regarded in his native State as a Democrat of the strictest sect ; yet he a?ked iuhis speech at Chardon, How can these amendmeuts . i:,!...,.,,. ii.,.! ,v-'r r""' " ---- r cqu.eced .u by almost the en f.. I ' llie wut'io VI wiv ..v. "-., . men see the difference between alty of opposinc the adoption of a n.eas ure, and yielding when it nas Deen auop ted. and opposition has become useless?" If Geo. McCook is a Radical then the Deoocratio party may be said to have no existence in the Northern States ; and if acceptance of the principles- of the new movement, .either in whole or in part, is equivalent to a desertion of Dem ocratic principles, then, it is evident enough that Alexander Stephens, who accepts the Xlllth Ameudment, is an "infernal Abolitionist," aud that the only t.iniine. consistent. outspoken I Democrat- in the land are Gen. Robert : louiiibs and Henry Clay Dean. They ; accept nothing Stratv Ltids. The Radical intellect, ever fruitful iu concoctintr mischievous, thievish and ras cally designs, has been able, duriug the ten years it has had control oi tne geu eral coverumcnt, to bring the science of stealing from the public treasury to the very neigut oi penecwou m cei conceivable shape and way have they sp a l. ,i proached the public chest, and under the j plea of serving the public iuterest, they have been hiling tncir private pocacis. They have drawu money from the Treas ury for their own eurichment, by shoddy contracts, railroad and eteaniship subsi dies, Grant's free negro bureau and ne gro colleges, aad iu every uuthonght of way and form. One of these tricks by which money is stolen from Uncle Sam is an old one with a very few sharpers, but it is one that is now universally prac ticed by the houest Radical contractors aud connived at by the equally honest Radical officials. It is for those desir inp contracts for large mail routes to furnish straw bidders, who, of cour-e. put the figures so low that they get the , .i. ... .. 1.... .. ,nn f. i awara. men tan to appeal, iwuuj: .uc ! department at the mercy of the real con tractor, who, with con veyancer ail ready, will carry the mail for the highest figure inasmuch an hona fide bidders at a less Giiure, supposing the contract to. have beeu let, have not made any preparation for such a contingency. Give Is Peace. It is charged by the Radical journals, North and South, that the Democratic party is wholly and solely responsible for all tbe vice and lawlessness which is al leged to prevail at th South. In answer to this, it is sufficient to say, to reasona ble tuen, that there is a good deal of hu man nature wherever you go, whether in the North or ia the South ; and further, that human nature does not encourage vice and lawlessness, in the parlauce of the day, it pays.

Duncan, of Ky." who durins? his recent soiouru abroad had many opportunities of becoming acquaint ed with the drift of public opinion, as well as with some of the prominent actors iu recent European events. Some of the results cf hia observations are told in the subjoined report of a conversation which he had w ith one of our reporters : "Well, Colonel, it is understood that you have visited the Emperor Napoleon at Chiselhurst, and the world is anxious to obtain from you auy recoilcctiao of your relatious with him which may be repeated." "I caunot tell you muc-Q wuuoui vio lating the courtesies of private life. You of courpe tee that it would be highly improper to repeat any matters I heard in conversation which it was understood, I presume, was entirely private." "Of course, atill there are many im pressions which you have doubtless form ed which there is no indelicacy in re latiog of a public person. Is the Em retort health eotisfactory at prebcnt?" "Yes. He appeared tr be in excellent health and quite cheerful. He was on a Yachting excursion with tac, and while on board the yacht he moved about, ob serving everything, and enjoyed himself quite as much as any of the party, per haps more 60." "Is he in good tpirita 1 Do you think him dejected at his reverse of fortune?" "He is in fair spirits aud quite hope ful I do not think that he is much dis turbed at the loss of his position, aud doubtless neither ho nor the Empress wouid care to repain it were it not for their god. The ingratitude of many ol those who ought to have been their friends has iuciiued theu personally more and more to private life." "What hopes are entertaiued of their testoratiou ? Is it not believed that the Napoleonic game is pone up?" "Not at all. Shortly before I lelt London I diued with a member ot the Imperial family, who explained tome some of the views which are now held by 'the Imperialists. It i looked on as cer tain that the imperial government will be restored France has but two parties, the Imperialist and the Red Republicans. The Bourbons are nowhere. Everything looks favorable for a restoration of the imperial power. The governments of Europe are in favor of it, for they hee that the disturbed condition of Fiauce is a perpetual menace to European order; and they know that Napo'eou was abie when at the head of affairs to keep tbe elements of disorder under. I have gathered this impression from many of the foreign diplomatists whom I have met abroad. It is tbe opiuiou of our own . . ... .i i : t .. . I . .! 1. n rrir.A.i ii rnlnniMIt's. "But do not the Imperialists recognize how unpopular the imperial government has become ?" "Of course; but this unpopularity will disappear iu the light of the revelations which M. Duveruois and otnera arc making of what Franco y over throwing the empire after Sept. 4. The result of the Russian revelations must be favorable to the Emperor, for it is clear that Ru-.-ia wa3 ready to interfere iu his favor but for ihe declwance. Tor a hun dred other reasous it is but natural to ex pect a strong revulsion of feeling in favor of the empire. The &rniy, too, is strong in his favor." "What is thought cf the Thiers gov eminent?" "Every one eecs that that is only a makeshift government and that it caouot last any time. The chief executive is an old man and may die at any time. That momeut, if cot sooner, Trance will be plunged into another civil war." "You think 60 ? Will this be a red war again? Has Gambctta still retained his influence?" "He is still active, and he fcides with the Republicans that is, he will advo cate a republic of which the chief will be Leou Gambctta. We all know what founding a republic in France means. It is, of course, tbe next thing to founding a dynasty. His dictatorial conduct just before the surrender of Paris will be re membered by every one. He certainly intended a coup d'etat then, and I pre sume he has not forgotten his project." "What backing has he?" "Yoa know there is a echism in the French army at present. When the old officers were in prison Gambctta supplied their places by new men. Jow the old men coming back are disgusted to find these in their places. The veterans are attached to the empire, the new to Gam betta. That is one source cf his strength. Of course he will also be supported by the Republicans." "You suppose, however, that at the final settling down the Donapartes will! return to Fiance and to power?" j "I have no doubt of it. Of coorso the Emperor could not return uow and at tempt another Boulogne expedition. I saw Bazaine at Geneva last winter, and he made his very point. He said that it was impossible for tbe Emperer to re turn now to put himself at the head of his array and call for allegianco of the French. That ia not exactly the way he will return." "How do the Imperialists like Bazaiue aud his conduct at Metz?" "Well, they think he did all ho could. As to his fighting at Mcfz.Gambctta has done much to discredit him, but he be lieves that history will set him right, and a man of over sixty, with great wealth, cares little for anything else except the verdict of history. He fought the bat tle of Gravelotte so as to win tbe admi ration of the entire Prussian staff; they admit that nothing out their superior force could havo beaten him. As to his getting out of Metz, the feeling now is that he could uot have doue so. Caan gamier has sustained his reputation ia that respect. "What about Lebceuf? "Well, be is looked upon aa a wretched creature "To return to the imperial family what sre jour impressions of the Lm press ?"
