Friends, Oome forth ! Republican Institntions Threatened. We need a strong central government; the wealth or the coin try demands it. Without oapital and the capitalist, our government would not be worth a fig. The wealth of the country has to bear the burdens of the government and should control it. The people are becoming edu cated up to this theory rapidly (very true Mr. Sharon, as regards capitalists), and the sooner the theory is rooognized iu the constitution and laws, the better it will be for tbe people. A strong, central government should be estab lished as soon as possible." Skmatob Shaboh. " Oome on-with your schemes of confiscation and foroed loans and graded income taxes, and irredeemable currency under univirsal suffrage, and if you are frank in proclaiming the doctrines of your ringleaders then under military necessity. and even here in the United States, toe must ?et rid of universal suffrage and we shall applause). Bather than allow those things we will have one of the fiercest of civil wars." Rxv. Joseph Cook, of Boston. " The London Correspondent of The Man chester Guardian in his reference to the intended visit of Dean Stanley to the United States, which he says will be for the purpose of investigating the church question, adds that it is'said there is a current of feeling there in favor of State and Church union.1" New York Tribune, Will our friends through the various towns in the state, who see the necessity of an outspoken, independent home journal, bestir themselves now in their respective localities and send us in elubs for the Exaxihbb. "He who would be free must himself strike the first blow." Let us help on the present awakening 1 The above specious arguments are the identi cal ones by which the despotic oligarchies and monarchies of the Old World, trick the people and maintain their government by the few in favor of the few while tbe millions live on the verge of starvation. Freemen of America will you fall into the same trap ? American Flunkeyism. A flunkey, is one who meanly and ser "vilely compliments to excess, one who 4s obsequious and cringing, a contemptible sycophant, a miserable parasite, who fawns on his superiors, and basely bullies those he deems his inferiors. Unfortunately for the honor and credit of our American nation we have too many just such people. These flunkeys do not all belong to any one class of society, they may be found in all classes, and especially in what is termed our higher orders. In deed quite a large portion of this latter class ever manifest a perfect willingness to don the livery of royalty, acknowledge with eagerness their admiration for the glorious British constitution you know, are in ecstacies of a lord or a duke but carelessly nod at them, shout themselves hoarse, if a debauohed Boyal Highness but pass in his carriage, would crawl half a mile on their hands and knees to lick the dust from the feet of some "majesty," and deem it an honor surpassing the highest favors of republican governments, if priv ileged to humbly bow in the Boyal pres enoa. They are afflicted with a mawkishly tender regard for a long line of aristo cratic ancestors, persistently ape the man ners and customs of those ancestors, dili gently search works of hearldry for some sign of a seal or a crest, and if found ex hibit it as an evidence of theii noble ex traction. There is nothing in pure repub lican or democratic institutions that com mends itself to their judgment. The idea that a government should be founded on the principle of equality, that all should participate in ordering or regulating the government, is so outrageous to their highly cultivated and aesthetic tastes, so shocking to their delicate conceptions of the justice of aristocratic privileges, that they cannot imagine why the fathers of the republic recommended the adoption of the system, and in order to remedy the evil would favor an immediate change, and the establishment of an aristocratic govern ment. This eager worshiping at the shrine of royal authority, this custom of subservi ency, this obsequious cringing, this dis gusting sycophancy, has become so com mon, and so fashionable, that even many of our public officials, men whose duty it it is to guard the interests of our nation, to protect and preserve the independence and the liberties of our people, yet look quietly and smilingly on while American citizens guilty of no crime, but that of hazarding their lives to protect tbe Ameri can flag, and of fighting to preserve the American union languish in British pris ons, arrested without cause and denied the privilege of a trial, and these same officials heedless of the outrage on American citi zens and regardless of the insult offered the nation they represent, raise no voice in de fence of the imprisoned citizen, make no demand for a restoration of their rights or for an apology to the insulted nation, but like James Russell Lowell, our minister to the court of St. James, quietly eat theif English dinners and sip their English wine, and facetiously remark that the only "burning question that is likely to disturb the friendly relations existing between the two countries is the stubborn refusal of ihe elephant Jumbo to leave his comfort able quarters in the Zoological gardens in Xiondon and be transported to this country as the property of Mr. Barnum. Well, we confess we admire the good sense of Jumbo in refusing to leave his present pleasant quarters, for if he should come to this oountry and become an Amer can by adoption, and bj any change of circumstances be forced to return to "the dear old mother country" he would un questionably be arrested as "a reasonable suspect," and find no American minister with pluck enough to demand for him either freedom or a fair trial. But there is another phase to this sub jeot. It is unquestionably true, that as the centralization of wealth increases in our country, just so increases the admira tion of the wealthy for aristocratic institu tions and monarchical forms of govern ment. Wealth brings with it a train of new thoughts, new desires, new aspirations, longings for a change and for a govern ment where the few rule and the many suffer. The possessor of great wealth de mands for himself special protection, dis tinction and privileges not conferred on the poor. This accounts for the rapid growth of American flunkeyism. . Forty years ago when we had no million aires in this oountry what American citizen would have dared to erect on American soil a monument to the memory of Andre the spy, who by his promises of British gold made a traitor of Arnold and came near defeating the Bevolution? Forty years ago our parents might have been poor, but thank God they were honest. Forty years, yes thirty years ago, Ameri can citizenship was something more than a name, it was a reality, and if an American citizen whether of birth or adoption visited a foreign country he carried with him the protection of the American government. But how is it to-day ? Our citizens are outraged by foreign officials, the '"flag of our oountry" trailed in the dust, "and our toadying American ministers pocket the insult, and an' American congress hesitate to assert the rights of our people. Out upon this dispioable lankeyism, that has taken possession of our people, grown with our wealth, and increased with our strength. But the question arises, how can the matter be remedied ? how can we teach our flunkey rulers and the world that we are still Americans and free men ? Brothers of the plow, the field, the farm and the workshop, laborers everywhere. you who toil 'till your muscles and your brains are tired, in your hands lies the remedy. You can cure the evil. But to do so you must combine, you must refuse to longer elect or support by your votes those who when elected do nothing but betray you. You must select men from your own ranks, honest men, intelligent men, men who will seize the helm of the ship of state and direct her course in the way of honor, of justice and of right. You must refuse to be longer cajoled by the ricu. There is no safety in the democratic or republican parties, you must think for yourselves, determine for yourselves. act for yourselves. You must com bine to buildup "one great National party in this oountry, founded on the doc trine of absolute equality, that every child of God is equal in His sight, and is justly entitled to and shall receive his equal share of the inheritance. In this way only can we win back' our lost honor. The only Money power " the Hartford Times dreads, is that of Morgan G. Our "democratic" daily says that "this oountry is loaded with Densions and frauds." One speaking from . experience should always receive marked attention. Surely, 'politics makes strange bedfel lows." We notice on our city tickets,run ning side by side the men who shout for the Land League, and the men who damn it. If you pray, go down on your knees and pray that God will never permit yon to vote for any such damnable organiza tions as the present political parties. Robert Biossekt at Coopers Mass Meet ing. The oiganization of "The Knights of Labor," that combination so powerful in the Western and Middle States, is finally invading Connecticut. Middletown is moving in the matter. What are the trades of Hartford doing! Is not your wages being reduced when your rent is advanced f Your landlords have " struck " is it sin ful for you ? They have set an example dare you follow ? The income of W. H. Vanderbilt is esti mated to be over $1, a second, that is a dollar falls into his pocket every time the pendulum swings, or 83,780 every time the clock strikes. Now workingmen does it ever strike you where all this comes from, and does it ever strike you that the information will be gleaned from a repub lican or a democratic newspaper, or ob tained at a republican or a democratic caucus ? A sad oase of bereavement has lately visited the family of officer Malloy of . our police force in the death of two sisters in one week. Mrs. Maggie Marks aged 26, and Miss Sarah Malloy aged 18. Mis. Marks was buried last Monday, and Miss Sarah's funeral will take place tomorrow (Sunday) from the family residence, 25 John St. Mrs. Marks had oome from abroad to care for her younger sister, in her illeness and died one week before her. Uncus Solon Chase, the father of the Greenback-Labor party in Maine, is again in the journalistic field. His new paper bears the strange appellation, of " Them Steers, " with which he proposes to plow a furrow through corruption " from the white-birch hillside of Maine to the land of the orange and olive." His press and type were purchased by contributions from admiring friends all over the oountry, which he now consecrates witli his life to the cause of suffering Humanity. Long live Uncle Solon, and may "Them Sxkebs" never want for a feed. Hon. Ezra Clark, our republican nomi nee for City Auditor is a long-headed, large-hearted gentleman, who deserves well of his fellow citizens. Only a short time ago he was instru mental in relieving his v people of a small cash surplus, and bestowing it on tbe meagre salary attached to the City Auditor ship. Now, in order to see that said sal ary and said surplus are properly applied, he accommodatingly condescends to accept said office. Therefore it is to be devout- eflly hoped that all big-hearted, long-head ed, aye and long-eared citizens too, will go "for Ezra. Michael Davitt, the dungeoned Irish patriot, has recently refused a testimonial in the shape of a purse of money, from the Fifth Ward Branch of the Land League. He says in effect that the conciousness of doing right is the only reward he can accept in payment for efforts in behalf of motherland. Let the branch now try Gen. Grant, he surely will not be so ungracious as to refuse it; besides has'nt he lately proclaimed himself at the "Knight's" big supperL that he had already become a citizen of Ireland excepting Cork. About three thousand workingmen participated in a grand demonstration in Philadelphia last week. They passed resolutions "demanding" a legalization of labor unions ; a national department of labor ; eight hours a legal days work ; the abolition of the contract system on govern ment work; compulsory education; and approved the passage of the anti-Chinese bill. Now let them only emphasize their "demands " by going to the polls at the next opportunity and seeing to it that no one but professional place-hunting politi cians are intrusted with tne carrying out of these ' demands," and they will have demonstrated once more to an incredulous world that the fools are not all dead yet. We ask the commiseration of all sympa thetic hearts for our poor did man of the Timet in his present deplorable state of mind. His " boys " it seems, forgetting the duty and obedience they owe a loving father, are about to turn prodigal, leaving the benevolent shelter of a democratic " home, for the gilt and glitter of the repub lican camping ground. Even his favorite "Bull" John is re ported to have " turned tail " and now The Old Man sits in pensive mood, His chair sways too and fro ; His great good heart is big with grief. And down the tears doth flor. " Ah ! woe is me " he sighs aloud, " There's nought now left but sorrow My boys my " Bull " are all going o'er To " Morgan " on the morrow." At the republican caucus the other night about 150 of "the Conservatoire of Law and Order " were in attendance with war paint and tommy-hawks determined to scalp the Guerilla at sight. They were also armed with a big proclamation setting forth innumerable charges against the present city administration. But "the machine " was inexorable, and wouldn't grind out the charges, therefore everything was " unanimous," This of course was galling to the "con servators." However a. delegation from " the machine " was sent to calm their ruf fled spirits, and assure them that though things were not as they ought to be, still there was no one responsible no one to blame. This had the desired effect, and the Conservators, divested of paint and plume, have buried the hatchet. Vive la Conservators! The Pope's birthday was celebrated on the 16th inst. On receiving the congrat ulations of the Sacred College he made a brief speech in which amongst other things he took occasion to give the land league leaders a back stroke as follows, "Sooner or later civil society -would be foroed to have recourse to the church for protection against the assaults of those demagogues who by inflaming the evil passions of the people seek to sap the foundations of order and morality." This is consistent coming from the Vicar of Him who proclaimed "the land is mine and shall not be sold forever." If the present undercurrent of dissatis faction and criticism now so prevalent among those professedly of the fold indi cate anything, then we prophesy that about the time " civil society " is ready to flee to the church for protection, there will be no church to protect, McCauley's New Zeelander to the contrary nothwith standing. Workingmen 1 on next Monday occurs our city election. Candidates are selected on both sides for your suffrages. Their names will be nicely arranged on slips of paper labeled "Democratic." and "Bepub- lican." One will be headed by Mr. Mor gan G. Bulkely for Mayor, the other by Mr. Ohas. M. Joslyn. In what essential principle do those men differ that they stand divided? Are they not both a unit on the one great all absorbing question of the day, the elevation of labor ? Do they not both look upon labor, as a "oommod tj" in the market to be bought and Bold as a thing inanimate.. Then why should the election of one or defeat of another give you the least concern ? If then, you are but posessed of wisdom, the most trifling, you will remain at home or at your place of business, leaving the poHtical dog -fighters to fight their own battles. Dr. J. Dobson of Fairfield who some time ago had appeared before the Humane Committee (?) of the legislature in opposi tion to the compulsory vaccination Act then in the hands of that committee, has since addressed a circular letter to that Honorable body giving many reasons at length why the bill should not Rasa ; be sides submitting much valuable statistics on the very important question. They came in a bundle to some friends in the city who engaged the services of boys to distribute them onfk) desks of the mem bers ; but unfortunately for the doctor, not knowing who owned the State Capitol, or how to properly approach our honorable law-makers, the boys were charged upon by some officious subaltern, their baggage captured, and themselves placed hors de combat. If the doctor would only write a treatise on the "skimmed milk" question, we war rant him that there would be no difficulty whatsoever in its finding access to the iu terior walls of the law-making chambers. Very many people seem to be of the opinion that we have no need for a stand ing army in this oountry. To dispel this silly notion let them but read the follow ing extract from the Chicago Times on Ihe question : It is the opinion of some well-informed and thoughtful army officers that the time is rapidly drawing near when tbe Indians will have so far been civilized, or exter minated, that the army will have no occu pation on what is now called the frontier, and that the chief use of the army there after will be to aid the civil authorities in maintaining order ; for, while the Indian disturbers of the peace are destined to ex tinction, wtiite disturbers of the peace in all onr large cities are increasing and as our cities grow in number and size the dangerous classes -wiii increase, and it is anticipated that, sooner or later, tbe troops will not be stationed, as now, where the population is the thinnest, but where it is the densest, and the lawless elements of society tend to accumulate. This is, after a few years, tro-ipa will be stationed near all our large cities and em ployed to preserve the peace when violence is threatened on too lp.rge a scale for the police. , The Republican Caucus at American Hall on Tuesday evening was an almost "unanimous" affair. Morgan Guerilla Bulkely being of course renominated. The personal of the congregation denoted that fact in advance. All the small frye were there skimming around as lively as polliwog's in a mud pond. Mr. Wirepuller Cole officiated, .and some little fellow whom the boys at the school meetings were wont to shout at "A h I go pay for your washing" seemed to act as scribe. He read out a long list of names all familiar ones, in the history of Hartford politics who were to retire behind the scenes for the purpose of doing what everybody supposed had been already done for weeks, selecting names to be vot ed for for city officers. On ihe retirement of these gentlemen, several around tbe room who undoubtedly bad witnesed this play before, might be heard remarking as tbey themselves moved for the door, 'That Boffloa it. " "I'm noon cnnnoli " "Good night." On the reapperance of the "nominating committee" there was a great hustling for ward to hear the result. A slim pale faced gentleman came forward with a paper held out before him, while, voices in the rear seemingly in surprise, queired. "What! Is he able to stand on his feet once more. uar paie-iacea gentleman made a preliminary speech, emphasizing every sentance, from heel to tiptoe, on the 'unanimity" (this must be the polite word for "cut-and-dried") of the proceedings behind the scenes, after which he read the findings of the court, being "the same old ticket" with the exception . of some Major" E.nbler being pitted against "little Fred," who although a "democrat" boasted at one time that he could be elect ed "in spite ofall the d d drunken Irish men in the city of Hartford.' See Oavan augh, book 1. p. 1. Tnere promised at one time however to be a division of the forces on tbe motion to adopt the ticket as . a whole, many evi dently feeling iheir inability to "go" tht whole dose at once, while the other side was bound they should. Matters were coming to a crisis when "Gen." Qaarter Master Harbison came to the front and in a very energetic speech in which he seem ed to glory in the freedom of discutBion permit td to all within the patriotic pre cincts of a rebublican caucus, quelled the tumult. Here we mnst digress to congrat ulate the "Gen" on this noble and sucotBd t'ul effort, assuring him that no one, unless they knew him, could doubt for a moment his sincerity After this, matters went along smoothly, the dose was taken in spoonfuls, bat the first being larger than the rest rather -gagged" the patient. However, we opine that on Monday next not only delicate republicans, but also thousauds of healthy democrats will be able to swallow tbe whole dose at once, with Morgau's plethoric pocket-book thrown in. Friends ul tuis paper who desire its suo cess will contribute much to that end bA patronizing its advertising patrons. This . . x . IS an lmporwtun juvt. Cheap Labor 1 Cheap Labor ! 1 From the Report to the State Department, of One of our Consuls in Germany. I am fully convinced that the most im portant method of increasing American trade, especially in regard to such articles as form the chief exports from this part of of Germany to the United States, is to cheapen the price at which they are placed on tbe market. The great question is, How can this be done ? I answer, first, by diminishing the cost of production ; sec ondly by diminishing the cost of transpor tation two tilings that enter into the price of any article. First, then, the cost of production must be diminished. This can be done by cheapening labor. One reason why German articles are made so cheaply is, labor is so plentiful and so cheap here. If laborers cannot be found in the United States, let our manufacturers import them ; for there are thousands here living on mere pittances who would be only too glad to find employment in the United States. The laborers already employed there could be induced to work more cheaply if the German habits of living could be adopted by them. Here as for their means they husband them so well they go far with little." While articles of diet are dearer here than in America, the laborers manage to live on less. They eat meat but once a day, living chiefly on veg etables ; their staple diet being rye bread and beer. They work ten hours a day, and sometimes twelve and even fourteen hours. Secondly, the cost of production can be diminished by lessening the cost of materials. Another reason why German articles are so cheap arises from the fact that all materials employed here except, perhaps, wools and cottons, are much cheaper than in America. If onr manu facturers cannot buy materials sufficiently cheap at home let them buy them here in bulk and import them ; and this course will obviate tbe difficulty and soon result iu the reduction of the price of materials in their own land. When once the American manufacturers can compete with the European as to the original price of the articles the question of the enlargement of trade will be in a great measure settled. M. B. Whabton. Consul. United States Consttlatb. Sonneburg, Jan. 6, 1882. .We do not desire to insult the intelli gence of our readers by commenting on this, but, we do wish to remind them, many of them at least, that this is what is in store for them if they' do not stop and reflect ere 'tis too late. Americans I we ask yon, was it for the purpose of demonstrating how near the grave's edge one might bear his burden without falling in, that the Declaration of Independence was proclaimed, with seven long years of strife and carnage to sustain it. Was it for this that the Emancipation edict of the martyred Lincoln struck off the shackles from four millions of human beings; and hundreds of thousands of brave men yielded up their lives, on the battle-field? And we ask you men of Germany, was it for the purpose of establishing just such a condition of affairs here as that from Which you fled, that you tore yourselves away from home and friends, undergoing tbe expense, hardships and privations, in cident to a voyage across the broad and stormy Atlantic. If not, then hold this picture close before you when you are again called upon to give your suffrages, to place men in power into whose hands you commit your desti nies. Stop and reflect, asking yourselves where does this man, aod this man stand ; is he for cheap ZjABob, or is he not? Does he believe that labor which creates all is entitled to but a mere animal sub sistence, while idleness that creates noth ing is entitled to roll in the proud lap of luxury, with labor as its criDging slave. Strikes! all Along The Line. Hatters in Danbury, Spinners and Weavers at Lawrence, Iron workers at Chicago and Pittsburg, Laborers atOmaha, Moulders at Troy, Miners in Maryland. Starch-workers at Glen Cove, L. I., and strikes of more or less magnitude all along the line. But unfortunately for themselves the wage workers have not yet learnt that the only strike that can be permanent in benificial results is the Btrike at the whole system of working for wages, and a strike instead for Universal co-operation. The People, through their governments, must not only take the railroads, the Telegraphs and the Insurance into their possession, but they must also take the mines, the manufacturies, and the majority, if not all of the various branches of industry ; for leave one avenue open to the cupidity of private or individual speculation, and labor will be robbed as effectually as it is at -present. Laugh at this, you who may, but we defy you to disprove It. Members of the Examiner association are requested to meet at the office on Wed even'g Apr. 5 th. By the Pres't R. Ptne, Seo'y. Our Minister to England, the flunkey poet J. Royal Lowell decides that it is impossible to be an American and an Irish man at the same time. Ex-Gov. English begs to differ with him. "An anxious inquires," writiDg from Willimantio to the Sun -wants to know if Senator Joe Hawley is an honest man in view of his position on tbe stump and his present one on the tariff question, saying then that " any change in the present tar iff would be disastrous to the oountry, and now talking about its ' crudities and oddities." The trouble with our queries t seems to be that he is " soft " enough to imagine that a politician must talk to hon est farmers and beardless boys in unitorm the same as he does in the presence of men who are posted on suoh subjects.
