Mr. MonosiNf, Jay Gould's "pard,"is unhappy In other relations. Ills eldest daughter, last jcar, was smitten with a coachman, and his youugost was yesterday bitten by a mad dog. m The Senators on both sides ot tho cham ber aro undeistood to havo decided that they must go into cxccutlvo session with Brother C.

The music at tho Unitarian Church In this city Is excellent, but why ore strangers Invited from afar to occupy tha pulpit ot that church when tho resident pastor Is worth a cartload ot tho "foreigners!" In reading about Disraeli and his prim roses, ono Is reminded ot what an Ameri can said about him after a, great speech de livered in tho houioof commons: "Benja min Disraeli Is a third-class statesman, a sicoud-class novelist, and afirst-class actor." Business at tho patcntofllco Is Increasing with astonishing rapidity. Congress should bo less stingy than It has hitherto been toward this brauch of tho public service It is neither honest nor politic to tux Inventive genius heavily for tho support of the gen eral government. Amono the bills presented in Congress for tho relief of tho aflllctcd in tho south, ono looks in vain for any measure relating to the men who were wounded at Carroll ton, Miss., last month, or tlio dostltuto orphans ot tlio men who wero murdered In that chivalrous festival.

Oiiave doubts aro entertained as to tho absolute fairness ot tho civil service exam inations ns conducted In Washington. Is It truo that tho marks galnod by successful candidates aro not by any means In propor tion to tho Intelligence or correctness ot tho answers ? At all events, for the present, It would bo well to adopt tho suggestion ot nn exebango about having a number of lady and contlcraon visitors present during tho course of each examination. Mn. I'owceuly makes a statement about tho alleged grievances ot tho strikers in tho West, which may bo paralleled nearer home than St. Louis i "Along tlio Iron Mountain railroad they have a system of taking 23 cents n month from tho wages of a man who receives $1 a day, and CO cents from tho man of $3 a day, and so on In proportion, for what, they call tho hospital fund. Then the- men claim that as soon as they aro taken lick they are discharged, and are de nted tho right of entering tho hospital. There are Instances which can ba proved where men havo made contracts to buy land from tlio company on regular yearly Instnl incuts, nml where, having paid nil but tlio Inst Instalment, tlicy were discharged from the cinplojmcnt of tlio company.'' Tho bogus hospital business It carrlod on, wo nru liifonncil, on other railroads besides that of tho Iron Mountain railroad. Ilourbon Ilointillntlin. Ot course. Col, Brady's resolutions in the House of ltcprcscntatlvcs proposing A commission to cxamlno Into and report upon tho recent repudiation and nullifies t Ion attempted In Virginia by tho Democrats were not seriously meant, oxcept In so far as to attract and fix tho attention of tho country and tho world upon theso attempts; for, obviously, It is not conceivable, that tho present House and Administration would talc any steps such as tho resolutions call for, especially tiponllcpubllcm suggestion. btlll, tho resolutions do servo well to ar raign tho milliners and repudlators at tho bar of public opinion, where, nt any rato, their oflcnscs may bo exposed and duly reprobated. For twelve years, from 1871 to 18S1, tbeso Virginia llourbons, lu tho tiamo ot "honor and honesty," had supported zealously tho funding bills which tho pcoplo regarded and denounced as fraudulent measures, passed by bribery and corruption, and In tended to bind them for millions they had cither never owed or had long ago paid. It was strictly tho business ot tho Virginia people, and that Is tho way they looked at It, as they still look at It supporting their view by official facts and figures which havo never been seriously disputed and which havo only been met by tho Shylock plea that "it Is nominated In tho bond." lint tho Ilourbon fundcrs, as long as thoy dared and could, openty contcmnol and reviled tho masses of their fcllow-cltlzons as repudlators, thieves, and highway rob bcrs for demanding a readjustment. Two succcstlvo defeats In stato elections, however, taught them that thoy must assumo somo popular virtues, though they had them not; and, accordingly, In their platform tor 13S3 they professed to "acqulcsco" In tho settlement proposed by tho Itlddlebcrgcr bill, together with Its aux iliary acts. Seizing poTcr that year under cover of this profession, and not by forco ot It, they at once proceeded to mako readjust ment tho thing thoy had described it and branded it repudiation I Professing "ac quiescence" in readjustment, thoyrushod at onco to tho grossest violation of that pro" Uslonof the federal constitution that no stato shall pass any law "Impairing tho ob ligation of contracts." They enacted statutes requiring all llccnso taxes to bo prepaid In monoy, Instructing all collectors to rccclvo nothing but money In payment of any taxes, and repealing every available action against collectors for damages for refusing to accept coupons and proceeding to levy. All this monstrous legislation was as much in violation of real readjustment as ot the constitution of tho United States; and upon this It Is that so many suits havo been successfully brought against tho stato or her officers, and that tho supremo fed eral court has adjudged tho wholo schemo ono of rank repudiation and in breach of fundamental law. Unfortunately for read justment, it was inevitably Involved In tho Judgment against repudiation, as part ot "tho schemo" of which tho Ilourbon acts referred to wero held to bo "tho dovclop mtut." Nobody can blamo tho federal Supremo Court for this holding, because, iu legal and Judicial contemplation they wero tho acts ot tho samo legislative body, bo hind which no court could properly go to discriminate between tho acts of parties. XtufBl'oaUillffeu'CmT federal buprcmo Court bad recognized tho Itlddlebcrgcr bill as an allowable propo sition to creditors, binding, however, alono on those who accepted its terms and funded under It; had directly sustained (in Antonl vs. Orccnhow) tho readjustcr act ot Jan uary 11, 1SS2, requiring coupons to bo ver ified before their reception for taxes, tho amount of tho taxes to bo paid lu monoy when tho coupons were tendered, and had Indirectly, but Just as plainly, Indorsed the readjustcr act of January 20, 1882, repeal ing the writs of mandamus, supersedeas, Injunction, &c, In nil revenue cases, and providing an Immedlato remedy by which nil money for any reason adjudged to bo wrongfully exacted for taxes should bo ro funded, leaving all recourse against the collector personally precisely as it had al ways stood. Those thrco acts constituted readjustment, and, for all practical pur poses, it was maintained and ratified by tho hignest authority in the land. Hut wo havo seen what tho Ilourbon ro pudlators did to vltlato and lnvalldato It by tueir enactments, not only Implicating law ful readjustment In their unlawful repudi ation, but so directly amending tho read justcr act of Jan, 2(1, 18S2, by repealing all recourse against collectors personally, as to bring it under tho condemnation of tho United States Supremo Court In the case of I'olndoxtcr vs. Orcenhow. There can bo no honest question that readjustment, as originally designed, would havo stood every Judicial test, had not tho llourbons comoupon tho sccno to Incriminate. It lu their outrageous proceedings; for lu Tennes see, tho samo readjustment had already muuiyucu uvvr uu ubbuuim uuu assailants, whllo oven now tho only legal barrier which stands between tho Virginia troasury and a ruinous Hood of tax-coupons Is tho read justcr act of Jan. 1 1,1832 (for tho verification ot coupons), which the federal courts still uphold. Yet, true only to tho apparently Ineradi cable Instincts of their nature, tho Virginia Bourbons met In stato convention last sum mer, not (as they should havo dono) to con fess their sins and amend their ways, but to abuso tho supremo tribunal ot tho country as a set of unprincipled partisans Repub lican partisans who had assaulted stato sovereignty by deciding Bourbon repudia tion to bo null and void. Nay, In tho samo platform (Inspired by John W, Daniel) which asserted this, It was truculently pro claimed that tho debt Issue had ceased to bo ono ot dollars and cents, and bad become ono ot stato rights against tho usurpations of federal Judges all other states and poo pic thereof being Invoked to aid Bourbon Ism in tho war it declared upon tho supremo Judiciary, it seemed an echo ot tho flro-eatlng times ot 1800 (111 But what better could wo expect from men llko Daniel, who had been compelled by tho pcoplo to swallow his own school-houso torch t What better, after this platform audacity and bravado, could wo expect from tho ensuing session ot the Bourbon general assembly than that It should pass an act requiring all collectors ot state rev enue to defy tho constitution and courts ot tho United States and Indemnifying them therefor; and that It should back this nulli fying and seditious act by another Instruct ing tho governor of the commonwealth to Issuo his proclamation ot boycott and pro scription against tho tax-receivable coupons and all who lawfully attempt to uso them f But tho utter depravity and profligacy In volvcd lu this Bourbon course ot nulllflca and repudiation cannot bo fully compre hended until wolcarn and consider tho facts which testify to a dcublo dctllng aud du plicity hitherto unparalleled In American politics. Wo havo seen how It Is and was that Bourbon repudiation betrayed read Justrnent by various acts In open und direct conflict with tha federal constitution; wo have seen how tho decisions against Virginia (bit her officers wero rendored under tbeso acts, and under tbeso alono; and now It re mains to bo said that nobody In Virginia but Bourbons, and corporations controlled by llourbons or In Bourbon Interest, at tempts to pay his taxes In coupons, or has ever done so. Exceptions may bo allogcd, yet, In nlno cases out of ten of these, a very brief Inquiry will disclose tho fact tint-tho so-collcd Republicans havo been In warm and hearty alliance- with tho Bourbon Funders ever slnco aud Including 1870 to this moment. Tho coupon law ycrs who bring suits nro all Bourbons, unless ox-Oovcnior Chamberlain, of South Carolina memory, may bo classed as a Re publican, when It Is as notorious as his Vat- motto career that ho Is a Mugwump re former and Clcvelandltc, who emulates Jerry McCaulcy In tho'fervor and unctlous dcmonstratUcucssof his conversion to tha "unco guld," It Is Bourbon common wealth's attorneys that mako defecttvo pleas that surrcndcrthostatotobcrspotlcrs, or It Is coIIubIvo Bourbon stato collectors that allow cases to bo mado that overthrow the stato In advance. Thcro aro many federal Supremo Court decisions affecting tho ltlddlcbcrger settlement, cttuor directly or Indirectly, but a critical examination of theso by any ono tolerably familiar with tho Virginia debt legislation, and tho authori tative opinions thereon, will show him, to his amazement, that not a single decision In tho last resort has gono against ttio stato or her officers, savo where tlio most obvious blunders olthcr of omis sion or of commission havo been pcrpo tratid, presumably by design, on part ot her collectors or tho attorneys who profess to represent her uulcss theso cases camo under tho Bourbon repudiation nets, and not under tho Readjustcr acts of January 14, UE2, und tho .rulings In tho cases of Antonl vs. Orcenhow, Carter vs. Orccnhow, Mar jo vs. l'arsons, rieasantsvs. Orcenhow, Moore vs. Orccubow,and several othcrmoro recent ones. A'o case nriifti.7 tqnarely tin cirr the acti of January 14, JBS2, In which the collector and commonwealth's attor ney havo performed their duty faithfully and Intelligently, ns directed by tho law and instructed by tho federal decisions hat ercr been brought by the Ilourbon coupm $calptri, or their Ilourbon lawyers, to the Supreme Court here for adjudication; and no tuchcatc will eierbe brought here if these u-ortlMS or their omctql Ilourbon allies can rcicntlt. They know better. Wherefore, then, this flagrant repudia tion and fierce nullification, on tbooao hand, whllo on tho other there is tho most cunning, persistent, and venal treachery to readjustment, Virginia, and her pcoplo? Ab, tho devilish ingenuity ot Bourbonlsm Is ectklDg to arouse, cajole, and blind those wbom it betrays. When readjustment, Virginia, and her pcoplo aro entangled hopelessly (If that be permitted) In tho tolls now spread ;for them, then tho Bour bons will vaunt themselves and tho won derful things they havo dono Inthonamo ot "acquiescence." They did all thoy could angels could do no more (nor devils ettbcrl) but tho Infamous Supremo Court at Washington bafllcd their virtuous and patriotic labors! "Let us acquiesce In tho Inevltablol" thoy will ogaln cry. All readjustment will fall tho victim, not of "honor 'and honesty," but ot Bourbon re pudiation and nullification. Shall It be so, Virginians Glndatono and llrlght. From recent dispatches wo learn that John Bright is strongly opposed to tho homo rulo measure and tho land proposals ot Mr. Gladstone This Is a f avorablo op portunity for Investigating and comparing u ..vntnl attitudes ot,,bnth ercat men. and of endeavoring to discover why it Is that Gladstone should bring forward such measures, and why Bright onco so fervent a radical should think It his duty to op pose thorn. Tho fact of the mattor is that John Bright is not ot tho material from which radical or progressive statesmen aro mado. He Is oloqucnt, clear-sighted, pug nacious, and persevering, but he Is narrow, far too conscious ot his own rectitude, un educatedIn tho larger sense and obsti nate, not tosaybull-hcadcd. When, nearly forty years ago, his first wlfo died, ho abandoned himself to an almost bopoless sorrow, Tho story Is well known of Cob den's visit to tho house of mourning, and of tho arguments by which ho pcrsuadod Mr, Bright to join him In repealing the corn laws and procuring cheap bread tor tho English poor, Tho eloquent Quaker threw himself Into tho agitation with won derful enthusiasm, and, from that tlmo until tho passage of his Irish land act In 1672, ho was among the outposts ot English liberalism. But Just at this point an amusing Incident occurs which cle-irly marks Mr, Brlght's limitations. In an after-dinner speech (ho drank nothing but water) delivered to a number of his friends and supporters In Dublin, immediately after tho passago of his land act, ho said something to tho effect that "tho work of liberalism was now accomplished," Nothing more remained to bo dono oxcept to carry out tho programmo which Mr, Bright and his friends had drawn up. When this happened tho English people might expect tho delugo and conBldor themselves fit for tho kingdom of heaven I Another English statesman had long beforo mado a similar blunder. After the great reform bill Lord John Russell said In parliament, "Now, indeed, wo may rest) this Is final I" Ills lordship was christened "Finality Johnny," and tho name stuck closer than any ot his brothers. In tho samo spirit John Bright thought that when the thrco or four great measures In which he was Interested bad passed Into the statute book ho might rest and bo thankful because ho had solved tho rlddlo of tho uutverse. Thcro wero many reasons why this should bo so, Mr. Bright, beforo entering tho house ot commons, bad bad llttla knowl edge of men, and less knowledge of books. Ho was a Quaker, who looked attor bis father's mills, and read Milton and tho family Bible. Such things are good In their way. Excellent I Wo certainly have no fault to find with them, but they do not contain the wholo duty ot man In this nine teenth century. Mr. Ruskln says his own literary stylo was formed on tho Old Testa ment, and, no doubt, that Interesting vol ume, had been translated by men who know and loved tho English tongue. But when Mr. Ruskln drops into political economy) after tho manner of Silas Wcgg Into poetry, his familiarity with tho sacred stories just enables him to "get left." Mr. Bright has had tho samo experience. Ho com menced as n radical, went on building bettor than ho know, and ends In what tho French would call constitutionalism. Thcro aro wholo tracts nay continents ot human thought and knowlcdgo open to Thomas Jefferson luthls country, and to Edmund Burko and Mr. Gladstone In England, ot whoso oxlstenco men llko Mr. Bright havo novcr dreamed. Let us now tako a glanco nt tho career of Mr, Gladstone Moro than fifty years ago ho left Oxford with tho highest honors tho university could afford. No great English statesman except Sir Robert l'oel Glad stone's immedlato predecessor, and, for many years, preceptor has ever had so dls tlnqulehcd a college course- as tho present premier. Ho was tho rival and class-fellow of Caidlnal Manning, and, at Oxford, it was often foretold that Gladstone was to bo tho archbishop and Maiming the statesman I Gladstone entered parliament as the pro- It go of n tory dukcf continued for somo years to bo tho rising hops of tho conservative party, and wrote his famous book ou Church and Stato, in which bo proved those Institutions inseparable, and laid himself open to a scorching criti cism from Macaulay, But when a chango camo over his political opinions ho novcr faltered or flinched. For mora than thirty years ho has gono on lu that path which, as Edmund Burkn said, "only heroes tread," bis mind and heart and moral nature deep ening, expanding, and widening with each new call upon them from that voteo which gives expression to "tho still, sad music ot bnmanlty." There Is a meridian lino In tho lives of the greatest mortals. Until this Is reached men look forward with hope and, perlnpj, exultation, but when It Is passed tho Irre sistible tendency Is to look back with fc.ir and not unfrcquently with remorse. Mr, Brlght's meridian lino appeared, as wo havo seen, after bis land act, Mr. Gladstone's Is not yet In sight. Tho vonorablo states man who has "ransacked tho ages and spoiled tha climes" reminds us Irresistibly, In his present position, of Ulysses address ing his sailors, In Tennyson's flno poem Bflmcthlngmayyetbosnvod from the ctcruil silence. It mayibo that the gulfi shall wash in down; It may bo o shall touch tho happy Isles. But, whatever happens, undlsmayod by tho terror and confusion round him, tho skilled pilot drives out Into tho darknoss, determined to seek, to strlvo, to fight, "and nottojlcld." An occasional correspondent of tho NoiV York Herald arraigns and denounces In the most brutal manner Senators Allison, Berry, of Arkansas; Blackburn, Bowen, Brown, Camden, Cameron, Cockrell, Coke, Conger, Eustls, Evarts, Olbson, Hearst, Jngalls, Jones, of Nevada; Logan, Miller, of Now York; 1'ayno, I'lumb, Hlddlcbcrger, Sowcll, Stanford, Sherman, Vanco, Vest, and Voorhccs for voting against a treaty In secret session, that attempts to set asldo an arbitration already mado with Mexico. Tho Herald correspondent charges porsonal In terests, near or remote, and denounces thoso senators as guilty ot dishonoring their positions, betraying their trusts, and violating their oaths. This, in our opinion, is a wicked and malicious attack upon senators of tho highest character, which wl'l shock tho public and creato contempt for tho Journal that would publish tt. It Is high tlmo that an cxamplo should bo mado of blm who would perpetrate a wholesale slander upon public men ot high repute without a partlclo of foundation la fact. TnEnE must bo something very Btrlklng In the weather or tho atmosphere, or some thing, or everything clso, when wo Und that tho boys tho small boys la tho public schools ot Boston, Baltimore, and St. Louis have struck for fewer hours school-time and a slnglo session.

We learn from tho cataloguo just Is. sued, by l'cter C. Kcllogs & Co., auc tion managers ot tho American Horse Exchange, Now York city, that a salo of first-class trotting stock, tho prop erty ot Senator Stanford, and bred at l'alo Alto stock farm, tfanta Clara county. Cab, will tako place on Tuesday Mid Wednesday, May 4 and 5, at tho American Instltuto building, Third avenue, between Sixty-third aud Sixty-fourth streets, Now York. The horses will ar rlvo upon tho premises at least ono week beforo tho day of sale, so that visitors may havo amnio opportunity for Inspecting and of testing tbclr powers In harness or otherwise Tho selec tions for the sale havo been mado with a view to establish tho high character of stock to bo offered at future sales, and which Is now being bred at tho celebrated farm in California. Wo may mention that thcro wero 178 trnttlug foals dropped at tho farm last season, a fact which makes It self-evident that annual sales aro necessary. As a consequence strict regard to tho futtiio market Is moro Imperatlvolnordcrtoinsuro confidence and ever Increasing demand In the products ot l'alo Alto'sfarm. Tho system of training and tho speed of tho different horses will bo found ou refer ence to tho cataloguo. From many others wo select for mention Electioneer, tho sire of twelve trotters, each with a record In the 2.30 list; Bonlta, purchased by l'lorro I.orlllard at 3 years old, who trotted In 2:211, and at 4 years did It In 2:18. Electioneers progeny, at 1, 2, 8, and 4 years old, havo In turn taken prizes for highest speed for their ages, a result never beforo attained by tho Immedlato descendants of any one Biro. Electioneer, Benton, Clay, and Piedmont rank among tho finest sires of tho world. In addition, Senator Stanford purchased at almost fabu lous prices In tho cast tho choicest dams that money could procure, and had them taken to his stock farm, confident In his belief that tho remarkably dry atmosphere of that section was peculiarly adapted for tho production of fast horses. The results havo surpassed his most sangutno expectations, and all who havo an opportunity of attending tho sale may rest assured that the slock offered will bo com posed of only tbo very choicest selections. p.ehsonaxitj..i;s.
