What is the fate of the Repub
lican party. Where are the iuch
oessors of the Radical party ? The
Republican or Radical party is the
administrator de boni non of the
Abolition party. The Abolition
party's mission accomplished,
what Is left of thy Radical ?
The Radical party is the off
spring and child of the Abolition
party, and is in fact a kind of
jUa surviving partner of the
concern. But the partnership ef
fects being exhausted, it is now
endeavoring to do an illegitimate
busiueis, upon Ilia bills, notes, pa
pers, and accounts on baud. The
fact is the Radical party lives on
Nigger. What is and what has
been their creed? Nigger emancl
patiou, Nigger suffrage, Nigger
equality.
Is there a bill or measure of
general importance that they don't
have nigger in it except taxes?
Well, when negro suffrage, negro
quality (before the law) and etc.,
are accomplished as they in us
soon be at the present rate. What
then? Where will tbo grand(?)
party stand ? What, theu. will be
their platform ? What will they
. re on when the nigger is eaten
up, digested and executed? What
will they talk about, legislate
about, quarrel about? Whattriff
they do, what can they do?
Nothing? "Othello's occupation
wilt bo goue, gone, uone. A:id
what of th;; party ? It will over
live In the detestation of eight
millions of people in the .South.
The Chicago Post, In the course
of a modest article on tlint city,
says: "By no possibility can Xew
York extend beyond Two Hun
dred and Twenty-fifth street.
There the Spuyten Duyvil comes
In, and bars all progress. Chica
go can go to Seventeen Thousand
Nine Hundred and Eighty-seventh
street without an obstruction. As
17,987 is greater than 225, so will
Chicago be greater than New York
in the good time coining. Buck is
the unanswerable argument of ge
ography and the earth's surface,
as established from the foundation
of the world."
THE POLITICAL. OUTBREAK.
The Albany Argus has been re
viewing the political situation and
prospects, and comes to the con
clusion that with proper effort the
Democracy can carry the follow
ing States:
New Hampshire, Texas,
Connecticut, Arkansjs,
New York, Tennessee,
New Jersey, Kentucky,
Pennsylvania, Ohio,
Dele ware, Indiana,
Maryland, . Wisconsin,
Virginia, ' Minnesota,
North Carolina, Nebraska,
Georgia, Nevada,
Alabama, California,
Louisiana, Oregon,
These, States cast an aggregate
of 222 electoral votes, or more
than two thirds of the whole num
ber of the electoral college. We
have some doubts, however, as to
the ability of the Democracy to
carry New Hamphire, Wisconsin,
Minnesota and Nevada. The
"natives" of those States are so
thoroughly imbued with Radical
sm and fanaticism that we fear a
whole decade at least will clnpse
before they can be brought to a
realizing sense of the error of their j
ways and the need of repentance.
The other States named, with a
fair election, will give Democratic
majorities, and those States elect
162 members of Congress, two
thirds of whom should be Demo
crats, and these, together with the
members we should select in the
more doubtful and Republican
States, would give us a majority
in the next House of Representa
tives. The prospect is very flat
tering for the Democrats to carry
the next House of Representatives
by a good working majority, and
the Radical feel that this Is so.
Thb General Railboad Bill.
The advocates of this "villainy"

portonlty that offers to ipring the

stood firm as pillars of iron, in sop

The following are the remarks
Mr. Brooks, of New York, was al
lowed to make in the House:
irran to CmitomIobiI Glob.
Mr. Speaker, I avail myself of
the three minutes allowed me, not
to discuss the case, but to slate
the facts at presented before, the
House this morninz. On to ear
ly assembling of the Houao, and
almost Immediately attea the read
ing of the journal, when a quo
rum of the House was not present
anu without a moment s consid
eration on the part of members,
the gentleman from Pennsylvania,
(Mr. Cessna,) acting as chairman
on the sub-committee of elections,
availed himself of the confusion
and disorder to smuggle a man
into this House as a member I
use the language deliberately
aud to place us In such a parlia
mentary position that it Is intpos
siblc, under the decision of the
.Speaker, to hare any discussion
or to retrace our steps, but by
general consent (which Mr. Cessna
win not give J
That is the fact, and I wish that
fact to go before the country. No
quorum, no order in this House,
nut general disordor and confu
sion. Without any understand
ing or discussion whatsoever on
this subject, a member assum
ing to be from South Carolina is
forced before this House, to be
sworn in by the Speaker, who has
only 9,807 votes, against a demo
cratic candidate who has 14,098
votes. Talk to me, hereafter, as
a member from New York, of
fraudulent elections!
Never, never in the worst wards
of New York, amid the most de
praved of its population, was a
fraud perpetrated like this, which
this House perpetrates at Its bar
to-day in attempting to smuggle in
here a man having 9,000 votes
against a democrat having 14,000
votes. Let my colleague from
New York (Mr. Davis), who is
now in my eyo, before he attempts
to correct frauds in New York
elections, lot him correct the frau
dulent elections made here in
this house, from Kentucky, from
Louisiana, irom south Carolina,
and elsewhere. There Is not ,a
fraudulent poll in all New York;
there is not a repeater ; there is
not a scoundrel there who delics
the law, or tho constitution of the
country, there is nothing there in
the way it is now attempted to de
fraud us, who are in the minority
here, by forcing upon this house
another member elected by no-
bod, from nowhere, having no
constituency, and representing
no tiling whatsoever.
Sir, I denounce these frauds
from the committee of elections
jeforc the country with all the
vigor I am capable of. This is no
longer a representative govern
meet. This house no longer rep
resents the people of this country.
It is a packed Cousrcss. It is a
fraudulent house. It la elected by
device and cheatery and conniv
ance such as have been exhibited
this very morning at the bar of
this house, here upon this floor
a man with 9,000 votes against a
democrat with 14,000 votes, smug
gled In here without a word of
discussion whatever.

1 from tb UrMitUle (tlm.i Times
We have this week had the
pleasure of inspecting the working
of the steam plow on tho Walnut
Ridge plantation of General
Hamptlon, and for the benefit of
our renders will attempt a descrip
tion of the machinery and manner
of using it. Two engines, identi
cal in all respects, and of fourteen
horse power, furnish the motive
power. They are able to move at
a speed of from six to seven miles
an hour over a:iy ordinary road,
and of dragging heavy loads. Coo
sequently.there is no difficulty in
getting them in position on the
Held. Below the boiler of each,
and between the front and rear
wheels, is a laree drum or vertical
axis, on which Ts wound a coil of
four hundred yards of wire cable.
The engines, being stationed at a
convenient distance, not exceeding
iour nunarea yards apart, tho
plow or other implement used.
with the cable of each instrument
attached to it, is moved by the coil
being wound In one drum and
payed out by the other. On reach
ing the end of the row, at si anal
of the steam whistle, the winding
causes the engine to move forward
the proper distance ; the action is
reversed, and the plow runs back
to the engine from which it started,
and so backward and forward at
the rate of about five miles an
hour, tearing up the ground to any
depth desired, not exceeding
eigutcen inches.
the turning plow consists of a
number of plows on a strong
wrought iron frame, pointed at
each end; in fact, two, triangles
joined at we oase, and their planet
making an angle with each other,
and res'Jng at the junction on an
axle between two large wheels and
nicely balanced; when in motion,
the plows of one triangle are in
the ground; those of the other
are in the air. and pointed in the
opposite direction; upon reaching
tte end of the row, the plowman
shifts bis seat from one triangle
to the other, the plows lately in
the ground aro now in tho air,
and the whole affair ready for the
motion to be reversed In fact it
is a double-ender, with motion
like a shuttle. The harrow is ar
ranged in the same way. The cul
tivator is reversed by the wheel
being locked, when a pull of the
cable turns It very quickly and
easily. To each of theso implo
mcnts wings can be attached with
corresponding plows or teeth, and.
by tins means the amount of work
doubled, but the soil in this coun
try has proved too tough to admit
of thoir use at this season of tho
yoar without an increased power
in the engines. Besides these im
plements described are ditching
plows capablo of making a ditch
two feet wide and two feet deep,
a circular saw for cutting wood,
and other fixtures. The en
gtnes can be used for various
purposes besides plowing, and
will, no doubt, provo very valu
able. Water is supplied to the
engines from a cart constructed
for the purpose. The engines con
sume about a cord and a half of
wood, or a ton of coal per day.
Two engines, an operator for the
plow and a man for the water cart
aro required. It is claimed that
tho plow can now break up fifty
acres of land a day, but at present,
in licddiug for cotton, it prepares
from twelvo to thirteen acres a
day, fourteen inches deep.
It was built by John Fowler 4
Co., steam plow works, Leeds,
England, put together in this
country by Mr. Grooms, who re
mains in charge of it. Mr. Grooms
has put up and worked several of
tli use plows in Egypt and in Cuba,
and is confident it will succeed
here. We see no reason why it
should not, and thus it will soon
be followed by others.
Will General Hampton oblige
us and the people of this section
generally, by sending us replies to
the following questions in order
that a matter of so much impor
tance to an agricultural country
like this may be fully understood
and properly appreciated?
1st. Prices of steam plows and
appurtenances.
2d. Adaptability to this lo
cality.
3d. The averugo amount of
work accomplished per day.
4th. Tho wisdom of Its pur
chase and use by neighborhood
association. ,
5th. Its valuo in comparison
with the old method and embrac
ing cost of using, and durability,

Line and Cotton Costumes
How to "do them up" tc.- In
one or nor late fashion letters,
"Jennie June," says:
It was remarked in a previous
lottcr that the laundress has quite
as much to do with ait elegant ap
pearance In summer as the modittt,
in fact, the extensive uho to which
cotton and linen matcriuls are
now put in the construction of
costumes, has greatly increased
the demand for, as well as the em
oluments of theso laborious but
little appreciated class of house
hold laborers.
Summer suite are nearly all
mado of white or bufflinen, pique.
cambric or muslin, and the art of
preserving the new appearance
after washing, is a mutter of the
very greatest importance.
Common washerwomen spoil
everything with soda, ond noth
ing is more frequent than to see
the delicate tints of lawns and
peracles turned into dark blotch
es and muddy streaks by the ig
norance and vandalism of a laun
dress. It is worth while for ladies to
pay attention to this, and insist
upon having their summer dresses
washed according to the direo
tions which they should be pre
pared to give their laundresses
themselves.
In the first place, tho water
should be tepip, the soap should
not be allowed to touch the fabrio ;
it should be washed and rinsed
quick, turned upon the wrong
sido ; and hung in the shade to
dry, and when starched (in thin
boiled, but not boiling starch)
should be folded id sheets or
towels, and ironed upon the wrong
side as soon as possible.
Buff linen should be washed in
water in which hay has been boil
ed, or a quart of bran. This last
will be found to answer for starch
as well, and is excellent for print
dresses of all kinds; but hand
ful of salt is very useful also to set
the colors of light cambrics and
dotted lawns; and a little beers
gall will not only set, but heigh
ten, yellow and purple tints,. and
has a good effect upon green. .

The following account of the
Egyptian army, and of the Ameri
can officers who have entered the
service of the Khedive, will be
found interesting:
The Egyptian army is compos
ed of Moon, Arabs and negroes,
and on a peace footing numbers
between (0,000 and 60,000 men.
In discipline and appointment it
will compare very- favorably with
the best organized armies of Eu
rope, and in physique is far supe
rior to the Turkish or any Eastern
force which is likely to be brought
in contact with it. . The plan of
organisation is similar to that
adopted in the French army, with
some Improvements Introduced by
Americans. The pay of the offi
cers, is the same as in the French
service, which is about ten per
cent less, than that of the United
States. Every officer -is allowed
one slave as his body servant, fox
whom he is to furnish clothing,
rations being given by the govern
ment The. headquarters of the
army are at Cairo, from whence
eminate all orders, which are is
sued in French, the legalized lan
guage of the land.
His Highness Mott Bey is the
Director-General of the Army.
He Is an American officer who
served with great gallantry under
Abdul Mdjid, the late sultan of
Turkey, during the Crimean war.
He married a Turkish lady of
high rank mid boauty.and has been
for sometime in the service of
Egypt He is on the Vioeroy's
personal staff, and is in high favor
at court Both Europeans and
Americans speuk of him in the
most laudatory manner. The
American officers especially are
iudebted to blin for many kind
nesses and courtesies. The com-mauder-in
chief of tho army in the
fluid, which was offered to Gen,
Gu T. Beauregard, but declined on
account of ill health, has been
given to General Charles P. Stone,
who went out to Egypt with a
larue party of Americana in the
City of Washington on tho 23d of

A new snd startling phase of the
question of Chinese Immigration is
opened by the announcement that
seventy-nve ubinamea are now on
their way from San Francisco to
North Adams, Mass., where they
are to be employed In defeating a
strike of the Crispins, now In pro
grew in that town. The employer
of these Celestials Is a Mr. C. T.
Sampson, a wealthy old shoe manu
facturer, a member ot the Baptist
ehurcb, and a steady church-goer;
a lineal descendant of that puritani
cal of dead beats who saw no incon
sistency between fitting out slave
ships and giving money to mission
ary and Bible societies kidnap
pers snd Christians at one and the
same moment. This man Sampson
is described; by those who know
him as a stingy, selfish, harsh ob
stinate, treacherous man, an unre
lenting foe to trade's associations
In every form, and who has exerted
himself to the utmost to break up
the Crispin Organization lq North
Adams. Having failed to accom
plish this, be one day bethought
himself of the Chinaman, no further
off than the Golden State, and sends
for them, as docile helpers in par
ing the way to a haven of more
abundant wealth. Sampson evi
dently anticipates a warm reception
for his Celestial disciples of the
leather god at the hands of the Til
lagers, as he has fitted np some iron
clad apartments In the rear ot his
shop-for them to live in, plated the
doors with Iron, and taken out the
windows in the back part of the
work-shops and filled np the spaces
with brick. There is considerable
excitement In North Adams over
the matter, and fully nine tenths
ot the people are opposed to the
movement, especially the' store
keepers, whose profits it will affect,
provided Sampson's experiment
proves a success. The Crispins
bars gone to work in the riant man
ner to counteract the injurious
effect which this movement might
exert npon .themselves, and have
organised a co-operative shoe man
ufacturing company. They hare
chosen their officers,' and already
stock to the amount of $9,000 has
been supscribed for. It is stipula
ted that these men are to receive
$23 a month (or the first year, 928
a month for the second and third
years, and 960 a month to Ah Slug,

The Virginia Enterprise of Msy
31st, fathers the following:
Our Flute Indians are of an in
quiring turn of mind, and alwaya
flock around at any kind of street
show, where they will stand for
hours stretching tholr necks over
the shoulders of the white specta
tors, drinking In through open
eyes and mouths the wonder be
fore them. Sunday afternoon last
quite a crowd of white men and
the usual sprinkling of Plutes were
gathered about an electrical ma
chine which was in full blast near
the corner of C. and Union streets.
Several whites had bought two
bite' worth of the artificial light
ning, when a ''big Injun," whose
raiment consisted principally of a
big turkey feather and a few daubs
of red paint marched np in a
drove by himself, liko baiter's
hog, and became ' a customer to
the peddler of home made light
ning. He seized upon the ma
chine and the man at the wheel
began to grind. So deep was the
silence which reigned in that ex
pectant crowd, that you might
have heard the blowing or a nose.
Presently the painted warrior be
gan to exhibit signs of uneasi
ness. He evidently felt thrills and
things twitches, for Instance.
His grim countenance became
grimmer, then grimmest There
was fearful working of his facial
muscles; his eves began to goggle;
the paint on bis cheek bones crack
ed and fell off in flakes. He tried
to drop the handles of the ma
chine, but they stuck fast to his
fingers. "Hi-you 1" cried he, "no
goodee 1 Stah-you-nana 1 Yoa
stop-ee wagon whon haw ; G d
d n I" Here he began a wild
sort of war dance, his fingers still
upon the keys of the machine, aa
though playing any accompani
ment on the piano. "Hi-you,
G d d nl Do'im small me
plenty two. bit I" The "wagon"
being stopped, the "noble red
man made a break through the
crowd at a rapid rate. Upon gain
ing a safe distance, he turned, and
drawing himself up to his full
height with great dignity remark
ed as follows : "Shoo, fly."

of Texas, including the war with
Mexico, and the meeting of the
first keislature. and also pictures
of the fruits and cereals of the

The editor never wore a shirt in
bis life, and he thought that was a
banner for the temperance proces

next week. So he made a little
speech of thanks, in which he
said he would "fling it out forever
to the breezes of heaven, that they
might kiss its folds, and that un

The ladies didn't understand him,
and when be talked about its trail

tbey were sorry tbey made it too
long. But a committee man took
the editor aside and explained the
shirt to him in a whisper, and the

with that shirt mounted over his
coat, and wrote fonr columns of
