Our friends of the Cincinnati Commercial
bear their grief very well, seeing that Grant
is so reticent and enigmatical in regard to
the Presidency. Why does he not define his
position on the Presidential question every
M TV a. m I iL. i
Friday, and thus help us to preserve our
, equilibrium? There is considerable
strength of opinion in favor of bis inten
tion of becoming a candidate. Will he not
speak, instead of keeping up such ominous
thinking such impertubable, oracular
gravity? and exposing us all to the very
' verge of distraction?
An intimate personal friend of General
Grant who arrived here to-day, and who

The most intimate personal friends of
Grant assert that be will not permit him
self to be announced as a candidate, and
will only accept the nomination in the
event that his candidacy should be deemed
essential to Republican success a contin-

of the matter consistent with the bear
ing and the style of the man, and the only
one admissible with the circumstances of
XLusb. The conspirators of Maine
Gov. Garcelon and his six counsillors
have counted out 8 Senators and 29 repre
sentatives, and thus put the Democracy in
the lead. The grounds upon which these
Senators and Representatives have been
counted out, are not sufficient for the ac
tion based upon them. There is no ques
tion as to the fact of the election of the
twenty-nine Republican Representatives
and eight Republican Senators. The only
question is whether the minute flaws dis
covered in the returns are sufficiently rad
ical in their character to invalidate the
election. The pettifogging of Garcelon
and his Council is too patent to require
any further argument. So far as their
particular acts have been made known,
their sophistries will not bear a moment's
examination. For example, the entire
vote of the town of Farmington was
thrown out on the pretext that "the total
number of ballots was inaccurately stated
by an obvious error in adding." The re
turn showed that 842 "ballots" had been
cast. It happened that four of these bal
lots had on them no name for representa
tive. These were not "blank pieces of
paper," but printed ballots on which the
names of the candidates had not been fill
ed in. The addition showed 838 votes
cast, while the official declaration showed
that 842 persons had cast their ballots.
By rejecting the whole return the conspi
rators were able to count in the Democrat
ic candidate, who received 14 of the 27
votes,cagl in the only other settlement in
that district. No honest man can say that
a candidate who is given his seat under
such circumstances should take it
In this stage of the developement of the
case it is difficult to see how the remedy
is to be applied. In the meetings that
have been held, the Republican speakers,
have not started anything that seems to
The number of cattle exported from the
port of New York during the first eleven
mouths of 1879 was 30,733, and the value
more than'two and three quarter millions
of dollars, while the value of beef shipped
abroad in the same time reached the figure
of 43,251.221 pounds, and a value in dol
lars of $3,912,770. The steady increase of
this trade after the cooler weather came
in is rather remarkable. It was larger in
Sep'ember and October than it had been
before, with the exception of one month,
and in November was nearly equal to what
it was in January. The total exports of
these commodities for the time given were
"The hostile Ctes have refused to give up
the Indians implicated in the White River
massacre. Very earnest efforts were made
to induce them to do so by Agent Adams
and the Chief, Ouray. The Secretary of
the Interior went so far as to agree that
they should be tried outside of Colorado.
The final determination is to fight rather
than surrender them, and fight it will be.
This intelligence will not be disagreeable

Mr. Moody, when asked the other day by
a reporter of the Republican, of St. Louis,
concerning his belief as to hell, answered:
"Of course I base my belief entirely upon
the Bible, and there isn't a ray of hope
held out in it that hell will be otherwise
than endless. There is no hope held out
to repent beyond the grave that I can find.

answer that, any man banished from the

Feeling foe the Treasury. Archbish
op Gibbons, of Baltimore, has procured the
introduction of a bill before Congress ask
ing for the appropriation of 29,363.34 in
satisfaction of claims of the corporation of
the Roman Catholic clergymen of Mary-
laud, for the use and occupation,, during
the rebellion, of property known as St
Thomas' manor. These priests, it seems,
were rebel sympathizers during the war, as
was true from the pope down. The claim,
therefore, is not a little audacious, but in
the present status of Congress, there is a
fair prospect that the bill will be passed,
and thus a way will be opened for access to
the treasury, for the payment of any other
Catholic claims that may' be presented in
the greed of that church.

"Well, there wasn't any shootin' about
it, nor much excitement but it was just
fun. A lot of us got together with our
guns and horses, and we made a big com
pany, all heavily armed. We had one fel
low carry a long measuring pole. Then
we started out and roda through all the
precincts where there was a heavy nieger
vote. When we would come to a field
where there were niggers at work we
would halt, and without saying a word,
the man with the pole would walk up to
each darkey and take his length and
breadth and put it down in a book. Then
we would ride quietly and solemnly away.
Well, it got to be understood that we were
measuring lor graves if there should be
any trouble at the polls. The result was
that the nigger vote either stayed at home
or voted right"
Edison's electrical light having been
brought to a state of perfection is ready for
adoption and common use the full fruition
and effulgence of enjoyment may be entered
upon. May we not snap our fingers at
smoky gas, stinking oil and snapping chim
neys and the heavy draft upon our ex
chequers? All this to be succeeded by a
pure, etherial light without offense of any
kind, and at not to exceed half the price of
gas. Oh, what a consummation is that
The standard oil company may now go into
liquidation. Gas companies ny shut up

Senator Cameron has been elected Chair
man of the Republican National Commit
tee by the bare number of votes 22 nec
essary to a choice, and Col. Keogh, of
North Carolina, has been unanimously
elected Secretary. Chicago was selected
as the place of meeting for the National
Convention, by 24 votes, and the date of
meeting was fixed at Wednesday, June 2.
The nineteen votes for the position of
Chairman received by Mr. Averill, of Min
nesota, are claimed to represent the
strength of Mr. Blaine in the committee,
and the friends of that gentleman derive
considerable encouragement from the fact
that the votes were cast, mainly by the
Representatives of Northern Repulilicau
States. Mr. Blaine's strength has rather
increased of late, and his prospects may
be considered better than at any previous
time. His strength, however, is more ap

The Cincinnati Commercial of Sunday
last, published "a carefully prepared his
tory of the steps taken by the great inven
tor in reaching his present stand-point-oi
complete success with his electric lamp.
This is illustrated with cuts, and gives
rather comprehensive detail pf the mat
ter. The silence that has brooded over
this great work, has been caused by the
effort to regulate the flow of electrieity.
The point of discovery now made, is that
carbonized paper is found to answer the
purpose that it was thought platinum
alone could serve. This brings into use
the cheapest comodity that could be em
ployed, and one that is found better than the
precious metals. At this stage of inven
tion, all other difficulties had been over
come. This was the last and one of the
The lamp can be made at a cost of
twenty-five cents. In its simplest form it
is as cheap as a gas tip. It is a plain
glass globe, about the size of a small
orange. In the bottom is fitted a metal ic
stopper, through which the copper wires
pass, and a strip of carbonized paper,
shaped like a horseshoe, connects the
wires. The air is exhausted in the globe.
Turn on the electricity, which is quite as
si'aple an operation as turning on gas,
and the carbon becomes and remains lu
minous, giving out a soft, brilliant power
ful light and the wick endures. No limit
to its endurance has been found. No
matches are needed to strike a light
Yon touch the key and there is your illu
mination. The glass globes do not become
heated. It grows warm, but by no possi
bility can there be any combustion.
Break the glass and the light is instantly
and utterly extinguished. The moment
the air enters, the light is out It would
be perfectly safe, therefoie, to use such a
light in a powder magazine. It will be of
inestimable advantage on shipboard. It
can be employed with the happiest results
in mines extra-hazardous. It will, at
once abolish the use of matches in our
houses, and by introducing a light that
neither heats nor enkindles, vastly reduce
the liabilities of fires, and thus speedily
put down the rates of insurance. This
light will do away with the necessity of
heat in well lighted apartments. One can
produce a dazzling illumination withou1
changing the temperature.
As there is no combustion, there is no
smoke. Wherever a wire can be stretched
light may be cheaply produced, so" there
will be no excuse for dark alleys. This
will be the terror of burglars, for by the
noiseless touching of a key, not only an
apartment but an entire house, may be
instantly flooded with light to the terror
and discomfiture of all who seek darkness
rather than light
It is alight that does not harm the
eyes, and that may be shaded and regulat
ed at pleasure combinging the .softness
uf the oil lamp with the splendor of the
burn ing of carbon points.
It has entered into the theory, that a
whole city could be light with electric
ity, from a single establishment This,
however, is not now considered practica
ble. It is, however, thought, that if the
city of New York, for instance, were to be
divided into, say twelve districts each re
ceiving an electric current from an inde
pendent center, that this would bring the
city within practical scope, for general
Edison's favorite theory on the subject
is that the gas companies will be
glad to buy the right of lighting under
his invention, and that the wires will be
conveyed through the gas pipes, the new
lamp being simply screwed on where the
gas tips are found. Very fine insulated
wire will suffice. All the appointments
Agents are already in Cincinnati, says
the Commercial, for the purpose of intra,
ducing the Edison lamp. The object is
not to sell the right to individuals, but to
employ capital in supplying districts. It
is Edison's careful estimate that the cost
of the electric light, according to this sys
tem, will be something less than one-half
the cost of coal gas." He is sure it will
not exceed that figure. Beyond that, he
proposes to use electricity as a motor, to
run light machinery the family sewing
machine, for instance, and has prepared a
meter for the exact measurement of the
electricity furnished to each house. Its
importance need not be dwelt upon. In
the matter of light and illumination its
effect will be revolutionary.
Edison's public exhibition of the light
is to occur at his place of residence, Men
lo Park, New Jersy, on the evening of
N ew Years day. The number of lamps
io be displayed is abont seven hundred.
It has been ascertained that a peculiar
glass is required a fine, clear glass,
free from all impurities, and especially
lime. The strips of carbonized paper are
a delicate brown color. It is Edison's
opinion that one strip or wick will last
for many years perhaps, indeed, as long
as the glass. It is the theory of Mr. Edi
son that gas-pipes can be used readily for
the conveyance of the wires, but his fa.
vorite idea is to extend the wires through
iron pipes lined with india rubber and
placed a few inches below the surface of
the streets, just clearing the pavements.
The copper wires directly connecting
with the lamps are nearly as fine as hairs.
The largest number of lamps lit at one
time in Edison's shop is seventeen and
they gave forth a steady and uniform il
lumination one lamp having about twen
ty five candle power.
There is no reason to question the genu
ineness of the invention or the thorough
ness of the success obtained. The perfect
simplicity of the lamp warrants it The
fame of the inventor gives the assurance
that he has not identified himself with a
sham, or permitted a speculation in his
name and character.
The value of stock in gas companies
can not be destroyed in a day or year, but
this much may be taken into account by
the holders of that sort of property, that
a new and formidable competition will
come to pass, and that before long elec
tricity will take its place as affording
the most splendid light ever seen in the
world, and the cheapest
The advance agents of the Edison Elec
tricJLight interest left Cincinnati on Mon
day night last for Indianapolis, having ef
fected arrangements for the use of the light
in Cincinnati, Covington and Newport.

is beyond the reach of mere local
3. That impurities in the nostrils, are
necessarily srwallowed into the stomach

quality of being absorbed by, the purulent
