Let the Xew Yorkers bury their own failures. During many years past Easter services at St. Peter's Church, in Home, have, for various reasons, been omitted. But this year the Pope will take part in the re ligious exercises of the occasion, and as a consequence foreign sight-seers are jour neying toward the Eternal City. The evening Democratic organ is good enough to point out a way by which the Senate minoiity may filibuster against the selection of officers. It is predicated upon the assumption of their willingness to violate the first principles of a- mutual agreement. And what will it amount to. It may force Senator Edmunds to come back to the risk of his life and health. This will be a great Democratic gain. It is not usual to give a new .Senator the chair manship of a committee. If, therefore, Senator Mauonc is put at the head of an important com mittee hy his new allien or confederates, wc shall .he able to make a fair estimate of the value of his late convictions. Washington Post. There are twenty-eight standing com. mittees of the Senate and four standing joint committees. Four of these go to the opposition. There are but twenty-two Republican Senators who are not new Senators. Therefore new Senators must have six chairmanships. This would not be so if the "constitutional majority" was larger. A friend informs us that Louisiana is represented in the United States Senate by tno carpet-baggers Kellogg and Jonas. Both are from Illinois. The father of Jonas was a sound Republican, and held the office of postmaster at Quincy, in that State, under President Lincoln. Kellogg lived in Canton, seventy-five miles from Quincy. Both moved to Louisiana. One is a carpet-bagger; the other is a Democrat. Dyspepsia. Some of our citizens are afllictedwith it, and those who have it certainly do not want it. But how to get rid of it ? There are some remedies offered in the market, not a few the next man you meet will give you a sure cure but the don't cure. Why? Simply because the cure lies with the individual sufferer, and he cannot transfer the responsibility to a bottle of . medicine. This is what he tries to do. He asks the bottle to work a miracle upon him. In the meantime he will be a spectator. The bottle cannot do it. Result: Humbug. Further appeal to friends; more bottlo; more humbug, and so on.

It will not reach the starting-point to-morrow. It may take a year to get back. Then start and keep right. Our Diplomatic and Consular Service- It is safe to say that few Americans who travel abroad are satisfied with the manner in which the United Stales is represented in foreign countries. As a general thing American Ministers and Consuls are ignorant of the language of the country to which they are accred ited, unacquainted with its history and traditions, and foreign to its business rules and social customsl As a result our representatives abroad are not en rapport with the people with whom they dwell; they are insolated; amid the currents of business and politics they are almost deaf and dumb. How ever able they may have been at home they are comparatively powerless abroad from the lack of the necessary tools to do their work with. Understanding no language but English, their mouths and their ears are almost hermetically sealed. And thus armed and equipped they go up and down in the land and among a people whom they ought to bo able to in fluence for the good of our Republic and its citizens. But the fault has been largely with our own political leaders at home. Foreign missions and consulates have been looked upon as sinecures, as comfortable asy lums for unsuccessful or decayed poli ticians, and so have been parceled out bj- our political chieftains among their followers with little regard for fitness or adaptability, or anything else except the adequate rewarding of personal political .services. It goes without saying that this is all wrong, and should be reformed alto gether. Civil-service reform has no greater opportunity than in the selec tion of our foreign representatives. The first and great prerequisite the isinc qua non of fitness in an Ambassador or consul is that lie should have a thorough and intimate acquaintance either with the language of the country in which he is to represent us and our interests, or in the language of diplo macy the French. We do not mean a school-boy smattering of the tongue, but the power to use it effectively in conver sation and writing on affairs of business and affairs of state. With this indispensable power our rep resentatives can bring into active use their knowledge of the history, traditions, business, and varied commercial needs and capacities of foreign countries, and can vigorously aid in stimulating trade and all commercial relations between those countries and our own. The exports of the United States have already reached colossal proportions, but they are yet capable of indefinite expan sion. The great foreign demand for our grain, pork, beef, cotton, and petroleum may be readily increased. Rumors to the dis credit of our goods, like the false report of the hog cholera, must be promptly re futed. The market for American manu factures may be made almost world-wide. The myriad products of the inventive ge nius of our land, those thousand little articles of daily need and use, will be eagerly sought for abroad as rapidly as their comfort and utility are made known, and the products of American skill and ingenuity may bo distributedto tho ends of the earth. It is with pleasure that Ave here give utterance to a widespread belief, which we make no doubt will be justified by the fact, that the administration of Presi dent Gai-iield will render itself illustrious by a broad, comprehensive and well di gested plan to develop and extend the commerce of the United States, to largely increase the volume of our exports, and to send American goods under the Amer ican flag to even the most remote nations. In this grand and worthy endeavor the administration is fortunate in having as Secretary of State a gifted gentleman, who has made this subject a special study for years. But tho first step to be taken for this grand end, we submit, is a thorough re modeling of our diplomatic and consular corps, and a replacement where neces sary of the old and unfitted representa tives by new men, who shall unite an adequate knowledge of the languages with a special fitness for their work, and thus be able to carry forward to fruition the liberal plans of the President and the Secretary for a great and advantageous extension of our commercial relations. In this connection wo note with pleas ure the appointment of Hon. Levi P. Morton as Minister to France. Mr. Mor ton is an apt and thorough French scholar, and a gentleman of large and varied business and political experience. His appointment will unquestionably be received as a compliment by the country to which he is accredited, and will re dound to the advantage and influence of our own land. We hope and believe that the wisdom which dictated this appointment will be exercised in the selection of all our for eign representatives, and that the admin istration now starting out amid so many happy auguries will thus take the first and greatest step toward the revival of American commerce. An. Extra Session of Congress. The absorbing question of the hour is, " Will there be an extra session of Con gress ?" The reply is, "Perhaps, so, and perhaps not," according to the respective views of those who respond. There are reasons for and against an assembling of Congress in extra session, and which are to control and direct the executive mind on this question the future must reveal. All precedent shows that the calling of an extra session of Congress is full of peril to the party in power which assumes the responsibility of such a call. The considerations, therefore, which induce an assembling of Congress, except under the dictates of ordinary rule and law and at the period named in the Constitution, should be grounded in an absolute neces sity relating to the public interest. The arguments in favor of an extra ses sion at this period relate to the financial policy and welfare of the county and the Government, and to the outraged rights of the people of the Southern section of the Nation. It is desirable to have a law passed at as early a day as is practicable, which shall refund a portion of the na tional debt at the lowest profitable rate of interest. A wise regard for economy demands this much. A just and wise apportionment of the ratio of repre sentation in Congress at the earliest prac ticable moment is desirable. But these considerations may, perhaps, be waived without serious detriment to the Ameri can people. The paramount question, and that which cannot bo postponed without in dulging absolute and positive wrong, is that, which relates to the rights of Repre sentatives in Congress in a vry consid erable number of the districts in the Southern States, who have been cheated, by iraud and outrage out of the certificates of their election, which rightfully belong to them. These cases all appeal for prompt action. They cannot be deferred without positive wrong to the peo ple of those districts, where hon est' and right have been disregarded in declaring political results. Immediate action is therefore of primary importance. It is due to those who have been grossly defrauded of their elections that the work of vindicating the rights involved should commence without delay. A session of Congress in May, or even earlier, seems to be called for by imperative considera tions which rise above the offices in volved in the organization of the House the question of finance or the law of apportionment. The numerous con testants for seats in Congress frcni the South demand a prompt and thorough investigation into the legal ity and rights of the parties who set up the claim that their certificates of election have been denied them under the dictates of fraud and outrage. Under such circumstances dalliance is scarcely tolera ble. The redressing of a positive wrong cannot.be deferred without adding to the measure of the wrong involved. This question presses upon the executive judg ment with unusuai,force, and may lead to an early convention of Congress. Much time may be gained by an extra session. A year's interest may be re duced hi the way of economy. Then the question of contested seats may be raised, and committees of investigation may be appointed and set at work during the re cess to inquire into the rights of the cases presented, so that reports may be made at the early opening of the regu lar session, and those entitled to seats may be established therein and participate in the legislation of the session, instead of waiting to be instated until it had nearly passed away. Then again, these contested cases are so numerous that the committees necessary to inquire into the equities involved would largely tax the majority and weaken its efficiency in legislation dur ing the regular session, if the question of contests shall be deferred until after it convenes. All these points must be carefully considered by the President before he decides adversely to an extra session. Let justice and right be wisely sought and counseled before this impor tant question is decided. PERSONALITIES. TuEsooner the new Czar gets vaccinated the Detter.

Henry Ward Beecher, in one of his revival meetings at Brooklyn last week, said : " I am growing younger every dr- The outer man grows older every day, bnt the inner and spiritual man growg younger each day.Tintil we are boni auewinto that higher sphere where, in a still broader sense, we will continue our work of glorifying God. I am glad I am ncaring that time.' My father's work is not ended, because he is dead. I will not carry on the work here much longer. I feel I am drawing near the boundary; I judgo events, and weigh them in the upper sanctuary. I have given myself heartily to Christ. Don't talk about growing old any more." Bishop Spaulding, in hisLenten address to the Roman Catholic diocese of Peoria, remarks: " I am nothlind to the fact that the originators of the public school system of this country not only had no irreligious intention, but were for the most part profoundly convinced of the truth of Chris tianity. The purely secular character of the pub lic schools is the result of circumstances, and not of a deliberate, purpose; and its justifica tion is .sought for in grounds of expedi ency and not in principle. But this does not nflect the necessary tendency of such education to pro duce religious indifference, and, consequently, to destroy the power and vital influence of religion ; and hence, whatever may be the intention or pur pose of those who maintain this system, they arc, in point of fact, the most effective allies of the propagators of unbelief and materialism."

An exhibition of Thomas Bewick's original drawings has been held in London, the Misses Bewick having lent for the purpose the whole of their father's works In their possession. From among these a selection was made, princi pally from the "British Birds." Bewick's well known wood-cuts were arranged by the side of his original drawings. To add to the interest of the exhibition, a painter of engravings was in attend ance one-half of the week printing etchings; on other days a wood-cut printer printed from origi nal Bewick blocks. MAHONE. The proposition to Senator Mahone to rise above sectionalism and to lead in the creation of a new South in politics is wise and patriotic now from the Republican Senators. Ulica Herald Rep.) Mahone is-jallin,stature, but he hits hard. Senator mlTcouldn't have been doubled up more eflcctually if Barnum's best mule had kicked him. Albany Evening Journal Rep. Perhaps the secret of Ben Hill's wrath at Mahone has a slightfoundationin jealously. It will be remembered that Mr. HIU has often adver tised himself as a man peculiarly fitted to lead a reorganization of the two old parties. He un folded himself before the public in that guise in his letter to Mr. Chittenden after Garfield's elec tion. During the Hayes administration it was hinted that a liberal bestowal of patronage upon Mr. Hill would be pretty sure to secure his perma nent "reconciliation." When his Chittenden let ter appeared it was somewhat harshly remarked by Southern journals that Mr. Hill was a good deal more anxious about himself than he was about the South. Kca York Tribune. Senator Mahone's alienation from his party began, as we understand it, with differences upon a question of local interest. The circum stances of his position led him into an affiliation with the Republicans upon Issues which, to them were vitally Important, chief of which was their right to a free ballot and honest count. He fouud himself very shortly in line with the Republi cans of the Niitiou and in bitter antagonism to the Bourbon Democracy. The local question on which Virginia Democrats supported him brings him into no relations with Democrats in the Senate. The questions upon which he received the votes of Virginia Republicans arc national, and naturally ally him with the Republicans In the Senate. And yet the Bourbon Democracy make a great outcry of treachery and treason when he takes the only position logically open to him, and talk as though they had owned him. They talk of treason ! Why, the party that elected him did it ou the promise that he would use his influence to give them equal rights, a free ballot and honest count. What would it have been called if, under such circum stances, he had gone over and acted with the Bourbon party that opposed him and are noto riously hostile to equal rights and honest elections in the South? Tho delate disclosed two things: First, the dim beginnings of an effort to divide the Solid South upon the only practical line, that of opposition toBourbonism; and, second, the desperate malignity with which such Democrats as Ben Hill, who pretend at times to deprecate sec tional politics, will oppose it. There has been some disposition on the part of Republicans to hold aloof from Senator Mahone; but under such attacks as tho Bourbon Democracy are making upon him he receives the cordial sympnthy and encouragement of all who are opposed to the brutal tyranny of opinion which makes the South solid for the Bourbon Democracy. Ahe York TYibunc .Senators Malione and HUL. The contest between the Democratic party of Virginia and 3Ir. Mahone's party has rarely been equaled in this country for earnest ness and bitterness. We are sure the Democrats and Republicans have never surpassed It in that respect anywhere. It is fresh in the people's minds that distinguished men of the same family were ready to take each the other's life on account of party hostility. It is folly to claim that Mr. Ma hone was elected as a Democrat, and that he owes allegiance to the Democratic party. Instead of the Democratic party sending him to the Senate, it did everything it could to prevent his going. If Alcorn should go before tho people of Mississippi this year on the same issue Mahone made, namely, a free election and a fair count, and any other local issues that might be made, and secure bis election to the Senate as Mr. Lamar's successor, Senator Hill would have just as much right to claim him as a Democrat as he has to claim Ma hone.

To the Editor of The Republican: I respectfully request sufficient space in the columns of your valuable journal for the insertion of the following card: In the Washington Post of this date appeared an article headed "Palmetto Politics," in which it Is charged that I have been trading on my supposed influence with the new administration. As the Post pretended to base its accusations upon the assertions of a "South Carolina Republican," who " was making things lively at one of the up-town hotels last night by his unstinted denunciation" of me, I addressed a polite note to the editor of that paper requesting the name of the party by whom the charges contained In the arti cle referred to were made. To my note I have re ceived no answer. Had 1 been furnished with the name I could have exposed the motive of tho indi vidual who has sought to blacken m v character by making those accusations, which I take this oppor tunity to denounce as malicious and false. I defy the Post to produce a single man who will dare substantiate the allegations contained in the arti cle in its issue of this date. Respectfully, &c. ROBERT B. ELLIOTT. Washington, D.

To the Editor of The Republican: Permit me to suggest as a supplement to Lieutenant Green's contemplated improvement of Louisiana avenue the removal of the Bartholdi fountain, now in obscurity in the Botanical Gar den, to the space in front of the Bank of Washing ton, a very appropriate place for it, and where it can be seat by all.
