It is to be hoped that before this Con federate Congress closes its extra session it -will disclose the object for which this extra session was called. It should not ex hale its sweet life under such a burden. Mrs. Rettie Wilcox, of Fartnineton, has been appointed a Notary by the Governor, and taken the oath under the new law passed by this State, making women eligi ble to the office. Mrs. Wilcox has the dis tinction of being the first female Notary in Trumbull county. Warren Chronicle. The Cleveland Leader is trying to turn Editor Fogg's laudable ambition to serve his country, into a joke, and volunteers its support of him as consul to Bagdad, and is rather pertinacious in its good of fices. Mr. Ewing, it is said, spends his spare moments in explaining to the greenback- ers how be came to vote for a hard-money Democrat for Speaker, when he could have voted for a soft-money man if he had chosen. This seems to be the month of cyclones, Butler county, Kansas, suffered from one on the 9th inst., in which thirty-seven farm houses were blown down and com pletely wrecked. A Mrs. Hawkins and her two children were blown a quarter of a mile and killed. They do things on a grand scale in Pennsylvania. The State officials have just awarded stationary contracts to the amount of about twenty thousand dollars, for which they advertised for proposals and paid thirty-five thousand dollars for the advertisements. The North American Sffingerbund or Jubilee, which has been held in Cincinnati, Ohio, during the week, has been a success. The attendance was large and the enthusi asm constant The chief soloists were. Mme. Von Alasleben and MiS Josephine York. , The first subscription of 2,000,000 francs to the Isthmus ship canal has been taken, and De Lesseps says he is now ready to apply for the right of way and begin work. As the money seems all to have come from the French, his countrymen have faith in the enterprise. The Utica Olserver rebukes Senator Morgan and all other Southern Memorial Day orators who talk about "the civil war having been forced upon the South by the unalterable purpose of the North to abolish slavery," and says that "this is a Southern contribution to the falsehood of history." The New York Commercial says that Greenwood Cemetery is one of the loveliest spots in the world. At the same time, it is a little startling and somewhat uncom fortable to have a small boy approach one in the enjoyment of stalwart health with the remark: "Want your grave watered boss?' . The affairs of the United States Com missioner John L Davenport, have been placed in the hands of a Receiver, and an injunction issued restraining him from transferring or disposing of any of his property. George Bliss has been appoint ed Receiver and Davenport has filed his consent ; Our venerable neighbor of the Standard says that Ashtabula Democrats fight for principle. As we have never heard what principle was involved in the extra session scheme, perhaps the Standard can enlight en us. An enterprise of such importance could not have been inaugurated without a "principle." There arrived in New York, during the month of May, 18,100 immigrants. Dur ing the corresponding month of the year previous the number was 12,113. The im pression has gone abroad that there are better times in America since resumption, and the campaign thunder of Ohio Demo crats is evidently not heard in Europe. President Hayes has appointed W. S. Streator Collector of Internal Revenue for the Cleveland district, vice Pettmgill, re signed. Mr. Streator is said to be a mil lionaire; in fact is one of the wealthiest citizens of Cleveland, and there is consid erable surprise in that city at his appoint ment. But he was an old personal friend of the President. Brigham Young, like some other reform ers, found improving the world a profita ble business, since his estate, according to the will just published in full, is worth two millions and a half. At the suit of one of his wives, the executors have been displaced and the property put into the hands of receivers. . - George R. Reynolds, sentenced to im prisonment for two years and to a fine of $300, for violating the law of 18C2 against polygamy, is now on his way to the peni tentiary. He is the first convict under that law, and the world waits with curiosi ty to know the effect of his conviction up on the marriage notions of the Mormons. Wade Hampton says and no doubt many of his Southern friends agree with him that the people of his section "do not care a copper what the name of the Democratic nominee is, or what his finan cial views may be. It is enough for them to know that the candidate believes the nation is a 'prehensible appendage' to the State. The action of Senator Bayard in refus ing to lend himself to the Rag Baby for Ohio purposes is a political event of the highest importance. He revolted on the demand that he should, as chairman of the Senate Committee, report favorably the Warner Silver Bill. But as he under tands it, it is a matter of personal in tegrity and public honor. It is a source of surprise that Dr. Tom Ewing has not been unanimously chosen wet-nurse for the Rag Baby. All his lact eal fountains flow in that direction, and havn't all the old Democratic midwives and nurses proclaimed his eminent fitness and adaptation for the sen-ice? 'why, then should not the little nursling find a nest Jirg place in bi capacious bosom? 1 The fiirhtine editor of the Standard is evidently spoiling for a row. When he heard of a Republican Club being formed in this place he gets his position and makes the first pass at his oppose rs. It has the same effect on him as it does on an Englishman whenever the picture of George Washington is shown him. It brings fresh to his mind the score of defeats his party has suffered since he became a voter, and it is no wonder that it makes him ill-nature and waspish. But the coolest thing since the late frost is his recommending our young Republicans to read and ponder well the Constitution of the United States! that sacred instrument which President Buchanan declared was not strong enough to hinder one or more States from seceding from this Union. The F. E. of the Stand ard makes personal allusion to the mem bers of the aforesaid Club which is not in very good taste or manners, and wonders why the old men of the township are not entrusted with the management of village politics. The F. E. ought to kDow that "old men for council and young men for war" hold good in this case, and if he don't believe it just wait until the next morning after next election when the Democracy of the State will leam that they have been beaten the worst since their sainted VaJ, landigham was sacrificed by Gov. Brough. Now give us something about fraudulent Hayes it is always rich food for the aver age Democrat. On Wednesday moraine of last -week a terrific thunder storm passed over' Phila delphia, and lightning struck the Austrian bark "Tra Triume," stored with oil. Close by were five other oil vessels, and on shore the mammoth works of the Atlantic Re fining Co., containing 25,000 vases of oil, and acres of still tanks, holding crude and refined oil, and thousands of barrels scat tered about The flames spread with great rapidity and fierceness. The oil from the burning vessels spread upon the water, and kept burning, the river seeming to be on fire. The work of destruction was sudden and complete. The loss in the fire of Wednesday is estimated at between $300,- 000 and $400,000. On Friday the bark "Hium," which had been burning for two days, npset and communicate! its blaze to the shore, and a favoring wind soon car ried the fire to the Atlantic Petroleum stores, near Point Breeze. The flames spread to the Empire Storage Co., and from there to the warehouses. 40,000 empty barrels, valued at $1.00 each, were burned, and the loss to the Empire stores, wharf and contents, will amount to $180,000. The loss to the Atlantic Co's stores will reach $100,000. The total loss must be es timated at about $500,000 making it one of the most destructive oil fires ever known. The Standard pokes fun at our Young Men's Republican Club, and names a num ber of tbem with a grin of humor, that they have been known as Republicans for a length of time. The Standard require ment is that this club should be made up, we suppose, not only of young men but of those whose nests have not yet became warm in the Republican fold converts from the Democratic ranks. If the Stand ard is not too much in a hnrry we will give it some of that kind to provoke its levity before we get through. The forlorn condition of Democracy blundering about and frittering away all the advantages that fortune has favored them with, making a point here and then there, and disippoint- ment and chagrin overtaking and frustrat ing them, affords a good opportunity for setting the considerate ones to pondering, and in due time to forswear the principles of a party that finds its highest achieve ments in the misconception of schemes of aggrandizement, and wasting such advan tages as may be gained. Hatching treason and rebel ion and failing in their efforts to carry them out, and then blustering over a determination to wipe out the results of that failure. The policy of the party in its unfortunate management will do much to encourage deserters and strengthen the cause of those whose policy is to build up rather than tear down existing institutions. Be a little patient neighbor, keeping your eye on the gnn and you shall see how these things will operate. General Garfield, in a speech in the House the other day, in referring to military interference at elections, said that the only instance of the kind that he ever knew of, occurred in 1863, nnder rather peculiar circumstances.' While he was before Chattanooga, in the Fall of that year, it was his privilege, with the rest of the army, to tote for Governor of Ohio, and while they were voting, shells from the enemies of the United States Government were bursting oyer the heads of the voters, and a number of them were killed. . By the way, the writer of this article will never forget the cheers that went up from the Army of the Cumberland before Chattanooga, when on the night of the'election the news of the success of Governor John Brough was an nounced to the soldier boys. The prophetic profundity of our Demo cratic candidate for governor, is rather forced upon us in the views insisted upon by Mr. Ewing, in his famons debate in 1875, with Gen. Woodford. ' The'govern ment bad expended considerable money for the purpose of replacing the fractional currency with silver coin,but it was all a waste, because it was impossible for the silyer to remain in the hands of the people. It would be gobbled up by brokers and shipped to the money centers, causing great inconvenience and loss. Trades men's shinplasters would take its place, and all that we would have to show for the addition of $44,000,000 to our bonded debt, would be this shinplaster fractional currency. Mr. Ewing's profundity either as a financier prophet or simple green backer, is worthy of admiration. The report that Murat Halstead of the Cincinnati Commercial is to be McCrary's successor as Secretary of War, is doubtless without foundation. It is understood here that the President, hearing through a mu tual friend that Mr. Halstead would like an appointment of a foreign nature, offered him the Consulate at Rio Janeiro, which was declined. From this has doubtless sprung all the gorsip about Mr. Haktead's appointment to sundry places, including a seat in the Cabinet The N. Y. Economist of last week has the following wool item of local interest: "Forty cents is being paid freely all around in Trumbull county, Ohio, and but little discounts are made. The dealers seem to have run the manufacturers out as to high prices. This j8 a combing wool section. We understand that some mem bers of the Grange who have bulked their wool have got into trouble trying to get too high prices. They bulked two years ago and got 50c., last year they failed to sell, now, with two clips they sell at 38cf, and have a lawsuit, while others get 40c. N. H. Senator. The Republicans of the New Hampshire Legislature have nomin ated Ex Representee Blair to succeed Sen ator Wadleigh. This will be a surprise to Mr. Wadleigh's friends outside the State, who had supposed his return at least prob able. A special warfare, which, unfortun ately and unnecessarily ran into bitter personal assaults, brook out during the can vass, but the result gives us a stalwart Rep publican, an able and honest man and a soldier, , Hon Charles Foster. Hon. Charles Foster was born in Seneca County, OUio,April 12, 1838; was educated at the common schools and the academy at Norwalk, Ohio, engaged in mercantile and hanfcintr business: never held any public office until he was elected to the Forty- Second, t orty-thim ana t orty-iourtn con gresses from the Tenth district and was re-elected to the Forty-fifth Congress, re ceiving 17,324 votes against 17,053 votes for Hudson, Democrat. When the Demo crats gained the ascendency in the Slate Legislature, in the winter of 1877-8, they re-districted the State in such a way that Foster's district, now the Eighth, was hopelessly Democratic Shortly before the nominations were made last fall, Foster was urged to run in the Toledo district against Frank Hard, but this he declined to do, preferring to make the fight in his own district although the odds were great- lv acftinst him. He was defeated for re election to the Fortv-sixth Congress by Ebenezer Finley, whose majority over Fos- ter was 1,255. Mr. Foster has always been a warm porter of President Hayes. He is a liant man. personally popular, and make a strong candidate. sup- bril will CONGRESS. Senate is still in session, wrangling over the Army bilL The Republicans, with Blaine and Conkling, have been making a determined opposition to the bill. Why this is being done is not exactly clear al though two reasons are given for their course. The first is given by Blaine and Conkling, who say it deprives the Presi dent of his power to enforce the laws and is a gross infringement on the rights of the Executive, arid therefore should be defeat ed. The second is given by the politicians who claim that the reason why the stalwart Senators are opposing the bill is because that, knowing the President has decided to sign it they wish to take away some of the popularity the President has gained with his party by being able to growl at him for not sustaining it in its fight against the bilL Since the Republicans of the House did not see the objections which the Re publican Senators attempt to point out and voted for the bill in a body, and from the fact that the stalwarts are anything but pleased at the sudden popularity the Administration has gained during the ex- tra.session, the latter opinion is more gen erally entertained as the cause for the present protracted struggle in the Senate. The principle event in the afternoon was a long speech by Senator Vocrhees in re ply to Blaine's remarks concerning the twenty Confederate Brigadier Generals that now occupy seats in the Senate. Voor hees spoke for nearly three hours, and slashed about most rabidly at all the 'Re publicans, calling them cowards, hyenas, jackals, political buzzards and other gentle names ad libitum. Further than a grist of blackguarding, the speech did not amount to much, though the Democrats seemed to enjoy the speech and will characterize it as a great one. Leader Correspondent. Infidelity. brother, which we pnblish in full in another column, is wesaauest coinmeumrj we utt.o read for many a day on that philosophy which leaves the universe without a God, the bodv without a soul, and, therefore, the grave without a hope. He who has been vigorous and unsparing in his de nunciation of Cbristain faith as a cruel su perstition, when he meets that experience which every one of us must sooner or later, can find in his philosophy no better char acterization of death than "a wreck;" and is fain to borrow, "in spite of doubts and dogmas and tears and fears," a hope from the Christian's faith. We stand reverently with uncovered head and tearful eyes, by the side of this most pitiful burial. The Christian on whose most sacred faiths Mr. Ineersoll has exhausted a scornful rhetotic wUl have, should have, for him in his sor row, "between the cold and barren peaks of two eternities," only profoundly pitying prayer. The fact that a Godless philoso phy brings hopeless sorrow does not prove ' . . 1 i lii i 1 1 . 1 tx. it ituse; is is Decier to ueiieve a cruei iruiu than a delicious lie; but when a skeptic assures us, as one did recently in our col umns, that the Christian religion is a "cru el religion," and deism is a kinder and brighter faith, or when Mr. Frothingham tells us, as in a recent pamphlet that Christianity is a despotism which the world will, before lone, exchange for a "religion of humanity," we may rightly inquire what good hope it has to offer us for the Christ whom it proposes to forbid to come to us in our sorrow. We may well hesitate, too, before we accept as kindlier and brighter than Christianity a iaith which interprets the death of the noblest and the best as a "traeedv as sad and deeo as can be woven of the warp and woof of mystery and death" in lieu of that which gives its possessor the power to face it with the defiant exaulta- tion: "O, death, where is thy sting i1 U, grave, where is thy victory r Christian Union. The following well expressed article is copied from the Painesville Telegraph. Mr. Ewing's start off in the campaign cannot be regarded as propitious or prom ising. He has to carry the dead weight of a large number of disappointed Democrats, many of whom hold a large influence and strength, outwardly acquiescing in his nomination, are lull ol bitterness within, and, unless a great change is wrought in their present feelings, will give no enthu siastic aid in the campaign. Then the great success of Secretary Sherman's poli cy, and his success in reducing the interest burden of debt upon the people by more than sixteen millions per year, taken en tirely from bond-holder's income, is so ap parent to every voter, that it will take a large amount of talking and reasoning to make the people turn from this sound con dition of things to the"new light" green back theory, with which, by Mr. Ewing's nomination, the Democratic party has sad dled itself. Not in the history of the Na tion since the war, has the country pre sented such bright indications of returning prosperity as now. Mr. Sherman still maintains his Treasury reserve notwith standing the immense drafts upon it ; there is an abundance of money offering for every sound and safe investment, at low interest rales, and most important of all is that the balance of trade with all the foreign world is in our favor, every month bringing from the old world hundreds of thousand of dollars. Then there is still another dark cloud hanging over Mr. Ew ing's campaign start off, that of the Bri gadier Congress now in session at Wash ington, whose determination to repeal all laws looking to the protection of the ballot-box, or stop the wheels of Government, by withholding appropriations, to say nothing of iheir openly avowed States Rights doctrines, is so conspicuous before the whole country. The strongest man the Democrats could have brought into the field could not carry Ohio with such a load, much less Mr. Ewing, who is only the nominee of one section of the party. i . ly ly - at On the 1st, 2nd, and 3d days of July next, a meeting of the most prominent Music teachers from all parts of the United States will be held in Cincinnati, Mr. R. DeRhoods, of Lexington, Ky., being the President Such a body has never con vened in this country. Able essays and the best of musie will be delivered, in cluding two Concerts by Thomas' Orches tra, and one Organ Concert at Music Hall. This meeting will be of interest, not only to Music teachers, but also, to all persons, who can appreciate good musio and the higher literature of that art. The mem bership costs only $1, and admits to the three days' proceedings. Hotels and rail roads making special reductions. As it is not likely that such a body will ever meet again in Cincinnati, a very large attend ance may be expected. The Democratic press has much to say about the valor of Democrats in the Union army. Those who fought for the flag did not meet in convention and declare (he war a failure, nor did they instigate draft riots, nor did they refuse to vote a man or dollar for the defense of the government, at or They were another sort of Democrats then and they are another sort of Democrats now. They did not believe in disunion and secession then and they do not believe in disunion and secession now. They op posed the scheme of shooting the Govern ment to death then and they oppose the policy of starving it to death now. They were not the followers of Jeff. Davis nor are they now of the Blackbums and Hills, and they did not vote for Clem Valanding- ham in '63 and they will vote for Tom Ewing in '79. The Counterpart of the Rebellion. lion. The following extract to appropriate to the position now assumed by the Democrat ic Congress, is from the speech of Hon, John L Mitchell, of Pennsylvania, in the House, April 26th: In view of this survival of "the lost cause" and revival of this active and still living spirit of secession,,! do not wonder the question is now mooted: "Wherefore the war?' The democratic party now rules both Booses of Congress. Nearly two to one of th Democrats in each House come from the South: therefore the solid South rules the Democratic party and Southern supremacy stares us in the lace in tne na tion. This is a momentous and portentous event which 1 trust northern people begin to understand. In this connection I quote the following poem, which I believe expresses a widely extended feeling at the North: MY CHILD'S QUESTION. "Papa, what made you go to wart" Said Jennie, climbing from a chair . . Cponmylap: "What did yOu fori" And then she hugged me like a bear. " 'Cause if yon hadn't gone you see You'd have two legs to canter me." "Why child, I went because" and then I stopped to thin Ic. Of coarse I knew I'd often told her brother Ben When the reel La 1 thrilled me through. And (till she urged. "What did you forf Papa, what made you go to war r" I looked abroad. The blacks were free, But voiceless, voteless, filled with woe. Slaves of their. masters seemed to be A s much as twenty years ago. She said "And what did Uncle Dorr Get killed in front of Richmond tar?" A rifle club went wheeling by ; 1 saw the murdered Chisholm ghost ; 1 heard the Hamburg martyr's cry The rebel yell the vaunting boast; I saw the wounds of patriot dead ; "What made you go f " my Jennie said. 1 "My dear." J said bnt nothing more, For. elancinc through the senate walls. xne rebel generals had the coor. And ruled the nation's council halls I "Papa." she urged, "Why did yon got" "My child," I said, "I do not know." Tee Bctxdozxks of Louisiaha, are not making the headway that was so confident ly expected from the early promise cf their scheme to unseat Senator Kellogg, . to make place for Spafford, and thus strengthen the hands of the brigadiers in the Senate. When Spafford began his move for the place, in order to secure another vote in the Senate, and to guard against the capture of that body in 1881 he thought he could invalidate Kellogg's title on the evidence which unseated Gov. Packard, but finding that would not do, he preferred charges of bribery. The movement was made against Kellogg secretly, according to the most approved bull dozing methods, and a few days ago the trap was sprung which was supposed to be capable of catching the Republican Senator. But it has turned out to be trap for Spafford, the Democratic aspirant Every one of his leading witnesses has tes tified that he was either coerced or bribed to testify against Kellogg; and as soon as he was out of the range of the Louisiana shot-guns has concluded to tell the truth The plot was a deep one, so deep that af fidavits were manufactured for these men) several of which have proved to be forger ies, and otherwise signed by deception or under threats. The conspiracy therefore to steal another Senatorial seat will proba bly fail, for not even a Democratic Senate will dare to seat Spafford on such a fraud ulent case as he presents. . " The golden wedding anniversary of the Emperor and Empress of Germany, was celebrated last week, and they were highly gratified at receiving from Mr. E Tarts, American Secretary of State, a message in the name of the President and people of the United States congratulating their Majesties on the event. . New evidence comes to light daily that Nihilism in Russia is regarded as a little more dangerous than Minister S tough ton represents it to be. The fever of excite ment is not abating, according to latest advices. Martial law has been declared in five more provinces by the Governor-Gen eral of Moscow. The Alexandria (V a.) Gazette calls Jef- ierson Davis "an undoubted public calam ity," and tells him that he should have died, sword in hand, on the way to Ap pomattox in April, 1861. That is before he got the hoop skint and petticoat on. Without these accessories, his murtoary glory would have been dim med.- From the Geauga Republican. the Mississippi ress Association, neid at rascaonla on the 4th inst., an essay was read by Major Geo.
