THimSDAV, ()CT()lli:it 11, 1883, In England are looo women in medical practice. Dorsiy's new appearance is under the auspices of Dana In the New Yotk Sun. Tilt country is subsiding into the convic tion that there is too much Immigration. Montgomery Blair Is said to have left $75,oco. He could not be said to have talcenj it with him. Tile national banks are mantcuvering to bury their fangs in the flesh of Congress at the coming session. General Butler was charged with having a gteat deal his own way In the Massachusetts Greenback convention. No Hudson river excursion steamer has exploded her boilers since the Hiverdale. It occurred back in August last. A uallad singer has sung himself into a Limerick jail. He sang the praises of O'Don ncll, who neglected not to kill Carer. A Kansas paper says the drought is caused by want of rain. Hut the question is whether this class ot facts belong to metaphysics. Boston Is decorating and enlarging her hotels and means to be in readiness for Kuro pean guests in large numbers this winter. So much Kelly and so many motors have been mixed in the work ol propelling street cirs that we find it difficult to locate the gen tleman. Does he fasten to the cable In the shad-bellied city? The engineers of the tug Kolinion, of Albany, New York, who was not quite killed by the eiplasion of the tug, will have an op portunity to die under a to years sentence for causing the accident. It is nearly a month since four French Commissioners arrived at New York from Havre on their way to -Boston with a view to making proper arrangements for France at the Boston exposition. We are not advised of their progress. Governor Butler, of Massachusetts, is charged with military malpractice toward the Vermont veterans at New Orleans in 1862. The regiment was part of his command at New Orleans. General Butler's military usuages were sul generis. The 69th anniversary of the battle of Ston ington was celebrated pretty generally In Con necticut on the loth instant. The singular feature was the omission of the sham fight. This is ascribed to the great mortality lately attending that description of war. When distilleis of whisky under prosecu tion tender large offers of compromise, then let the government press the prosecution with the fury of a vesuvian eruption and the veloc ity of a cyclone. Such is the oredicament In United States vs. Goodrich Bush. Mangle lJush and gobble all his taxes. Among the Presidential timber furnished to the Democratic National convention by the author of "A Political Revelation," Is Mr. Ilolman, of Indiana. Mr. Holman Is sup. ported by his own journal, which originated the wierd scheme. The editor Is asked if this Is the man who has bid for the public confidence by advertising. Such is fame. The statesman who has won his reputation by crying in the House of Representatives in all' weathers and at all hours "I object," is thus confounded with a patent medicine man. Mr, Ilolman designs to draw votes, but Is not to be Identified with one who draws pain from the physical system. It is chcerior to see Republican papers an nounce that Senator Mahone It not to urge his assessment on the Norfolk navy yard em ployees. This is better than orders from Washington. Let the respectable Republican papers warn the Readjuster leader that the country will not stand it If he persists in vio lating the civil teiviec law. Nothing can be imagined so scandalous. We do not care to know that the President is in it. If he be so much the worse for him. But President or satrap it is as well for all concerned to under stand that the country has some stake on this question of civil service, and that it Is not going to be run down by master or man. We warn these offenders out of our own mouths. There can be no more effectual and appro priate disposition of the surplus millions now rapidly accumulating in the national treasury than to apply them to the cancellation of greenbacks. Whatever portion of the surplus circulation can be thus put out of the nay Is a perfectly legitimate and most advantagcousj adjustment ot the repletion, it is estimated that there ate now about 300,000,000 of In terest bearing bonds which are subject to call, and all that are subject to call, during the next eight years. The redemption ol these bonds should be spread over the whole lime, assigned to each year Its due portion. And ith the rest of the treasury surplus the Secre tary should cancel paper money. By this course Congress will be relieved of its ten dency to extravagance, and the treasury of lis useless excess. Ir is a large sited fued now progressing in Louisiana. The two wings of the Demo cratic party arc In the field under hostile lead ers, one boutbon, the other liberal, and the battle will be waged with unremitting futy till the victor is declared. General Ogden Is the hero par excellence of the 14th Sep'embcr when the Federal and State forces met in bat tle array some years ago. The other faction is led by McKnery, the brother of the Mc Kntry of land grabbing notoriety, himsell Lieutenant Governor under Wilts with some political advantages, and nothing else In his favor. Adding up the prospects on both sides it Is likely Ogden has the better chance. In the meantime it may be only because the Republicans have not an able leader, com petent to make it a triangular fight that lltey are counted out by the others and expected to let the field go by default. It is scarcely credible that the wages of pie ty have been cut down In the penon of Rev. Henry Ward Beechcr to the pitiful sum of $!2,oco per annum and that the lecturing tour Is a device to fill up the cranks. How can Mr. Beecher be expected to keep up the dig nity and humility ol Plymouth church on such pay ! Mr. Beecher's career Is one of extraor dinary success. Having triumphed overall his enemies and established securely his per fect Innocence of any departure from the Brooklyn code of religious morals, how under the friendly auspices of the Immaculate Sher man, the great Gookins, and the others can It be he is thus shorn on his pay, and shackled in his use of the privileges of the Irceum ? That Is If there Is, also, embargo on the lecture funds. Mr. Beechcr was not gulped by the Tiltons. He survived the dramatic situation of the mutual friend. Had he fallen In the adverse path diminished wages might have been looked for. But seen under his present advantages how can the thought of any reduction be borne ? We do not favor the transformation of Tenilorial into State governments faster than actual conditions justify. The Union is grow ing fast enough, and the addition of an un wieldy Senate to an unwieldy House will not favor legislation. At the last session Dakota, with 135,000 Inhabitants, was clamorous for admission to the dignity and consequence of a State of this Union. But It did not appear that the more grave and sober citizens of the Territory wanted a State government wilh its army of dependants to be pensioned on Its treasury. Then another obnoxious feature was the burlesque of a pair of Federal Sena tors with a following represented in the lower House by n single member. We therefore entertained the hope in the last session that the question would be deferred. And It has been with much advantage to Dakota. She will appear at the doors of the coming Con gress with her credentials prepared by aTerrl- torial convention, a title that will admit of no dispute, nor be disputed, and welcomed with open arms to the glorious sisterhood, of which she is to become one of the wealthiest and proudest members, and In her political, social and industrial influence the common pride and boast of all. By Balloon. What has become of the air problems which were to have been solved not long ago by balloon voyaging and have not been ? The principle that everything Is possible of which the mind can conceive a formula, is not, we trust, to be conjured into fallacy through the mere absence of experiment. None, deserv ing mention, has been made in the project of ballooning. Our latest memory of- its pro gress is ol a discovery of ;xrial strata, under the perishable point of altitude, throughout which the air moves In a particular direction j thus a change of direction would but require a change of altitude. It was by virtue of such alleged discovery that we were enchanted into expectation. Nothing could have been of more blooming promise than this theory when last heard of. What has our esteemed contemporary, the New York Graphic, done with its xnal philosopher and its balloon t Put It Thar. When the stranger remarked that he was irom Arkansas, one of the passengers sudden ly turned and asked; "You are, eh! May be you are from Crilten den county!" "I am that."
