Tlinrsiay. Aagttst 2, 1ST7 - The DcislT Cause. The New York Sun says that thero ia now among the people of this country an amount of distress and suffering for want of employment and for want of money, Buoh as was never known in the United States before. Great strikes and riots, with the tnilitarv of several Btates under arms, afford the most startling and most conclusive evidence of this universal It is exceedingly important for all peo ple, and especially for those workingmen who suffer and are to sutler the most deeply from this tragical situation, to ua derstand the causes which bring such mis ery upon them. These causes are several, and the des Derate remedy which the railroad engi neers and firemen have fallen upon is not only utterly ineffectual against them, but can only result in bringing greater priva tions and deeper Buffering upon those who resort to it Of the great trunk railroad companies, one is already in bankruptcy and others are upon the verge of it, while the strongest of them cannot continue to pay dividends from its earnings. The railroads themselves are thus at starvation point, and thero is uo alternative for the managers but to reduce to starvation point the wages of their employes. The several causes which together result in this state of things we have discussed and expounded from time to time; but there is one among them, the most recent and the most decisive, which the viotims of this crisis shomld never forget and never overlook. This decisive cause, worse than all others together, is the Electoral Coo spirpcy of last fall, by which the man elected President by the people was deprived or that election, and another man, who was not elected, was installed as President. For years -from the panic of 1873 on the country had suffered from stagnation of industry and business, aggravated by political corruption whose poison extended to every vein and nerve of the public body. To remove those evils the people resorted to the ballot boxes. They elected a Presi dent pledged to reform ; but the heads and managers of the Republican (party, sup ported by the moral reformers and senti mental rhetoricians in the ranks of that great organization, determined that this election should be set aside. They set it aside by frauds the most glaring and unex ampled; and in '.the whole of that great party, with all its array of intelligence and all its pretensions to uprightness, only two men, two Republican members of Congress lrom Massachusetts, were found to protest against the wrong! Before this crime was consummated, business had begun to revive. Times wert becoming better, very much better; peo ple had confidence and hope. But the crime killed all confidence and all hope, just as, for the time beintr, it paralyzed the constitution and nullified all law. Con fidence, hope, industry, and business have not revived from the deadly blow; and it does not now seem likely that they can regain their normal vigor and activity, until after another Presidential election. Let those men who have no work and those who can only obtain work at starva tion wages, reflect upon these facts and preparo themselves to execute justice at the ballot box when the right time comes. Scared. hx Uov. Mosjs is meditating turning state's evidence, and the mere whisper of the fact has tttampeded nearly all the carpet-baggers left in South Carolina, Just before being committed to jail, he wrote in a private letter to a friend: "For the last five years I have been sig naled out by many of the leaders of the Republican party as a scauegoat, on whom has wen thrown all of the odium win Hiiould have been distributed among most of those leaders. 1 have borne it all, be cause I loved my party more than I loved myself. Hereafter my first duty on earth will be towards myself and my family, aud my first step in the porlormance ot that duty shall be to make atonement to my state tor whatsoever errors, shortcomings, or even sins, may have been apparent in ruy political career. Self-defence can hhamu no honorable man, and a just re tpcntruent against those who have sought to injure us can only be esteomed a part of a noble nature. There is a pathos in this worthy t Tweed, and the story, if ever told, wi he second in interest only to that of th Tammany statesman. The Baltimore Sun, whioh is published in a Democratic city whioh was saved by Federal troops from excesses such as those which have disgraced Pittsburg and bur dene J its people with millions of debt, docs full justice to the great important of str ing federal army under proper condi tional control ; but it keeps its bead cool and clear ui to the still greater importance ot strengthening our state and municipal au tlioriticn. It says with truth: "There is more danger in the suggestion that the federal power is the only safeguard for life and liberty in this country than thero is in all the perils to lire and proper ty now threatened by those enemies of so cmty to be found in all governments who are availing themselves of railroad strikes to como to the front, and couimi robbery and murder under the guise defending the rights of laborers. For our selves, we scarcely think that there needs auy discrimination between the industrious working men of the country and would be Communists and actual thieves who have taken the question out of the hands of the strikers aud have elbowed themselves to the front, making war upon the vital in tercets of society, and upon those who are most concerned in their preservation, the industrial classes. If Genera! Sherman had said we need the American army to protect the country from mobs, we fear that his words might have been borne out by late experiences. But to say that with out an army, a strong standing army, the American people would become a mob, is quite a different kind of statement. It is likely enough that, in view of late develop ments, it may be well to keep the army to 25,000 or 30,000, but our main reliance for domestic order must be upon Btate and local agefjeiesjaod upon bringing the volun ter troops to a high state of discipline, ior it is already shown that it is practicable for a state to have a volunteer force which, in addition to native courage, can be train ed to the coolness and self-restraint of regu lars, and refrain from punishing mobs till it is absolutely ntcessary. Meantime, when it became necessary for the governors of states to call on the president to aid in putting down insurrection it is gratifying to witness the promptness and pffiVmncv of the response in recognition of constitution al duty and the autonomy of the states, The Inogio of the Strikers. From the Cincinnati Commercial. It is to be inferred from the policy of t nose wuo nave arrested the railroad busi ness of the country, and from the conduct of those who have engaged in the destruc tion of their property, that jfVrrtThe way to improve the condition of labor is to paxalyzejthe business of the country. Second-Th&t the way to increase the pay of labor is to cripple the industries that employ it. Third mat the way to make times pood and everybody crosperous is to ob struct and destroy the agencies .which are essential to prosperity. lourth lhat the way to inspire confi dence and tempt capital to invest in enter prises that will give employment to labor, is to terrorize the publio mind and spread a feeling of insecurity among capitalists. fifth A capital is Quito as necessary to labor as labor is essential to capital, it is sound policy to widen the breach be tween them, and create antagonisms where none in the nature of things exist. These deductions are legitimate because they are the actual results of strikes and riotous proceedings. If workingmen do not believe that such consequences are calculated to improve their present or prospective situations, they should be ex ceedingly careful how they assist to pro mote a state of things that invariably works out these results. An interesting fact attending the recent outbreak in Louisville, which was at once followed by the enrolment of nearly a thous and citizens for the protection of the city, was the service side by side of ex-Federal and cx-Confederate soldiers. Ex-Secretary Bristow, for instance, colonel of one of the Federal regiments recruited in Ken tucky, stood guard with General Basil Duke. John Morgan's most dashing lieu tenant, and ex-United States Marshal Eli II. Murray, the youngest brigadier in the Union Army, commanded one of the hast ily mustered companies, while Major E. Richard, who served under General Lee, was one of his fellow-officers. Hundreds of ex-soldiers of the blue and gray stood shoulder to shoulder in the ranks. A war between labor and capital can never be beneficial to the laborer. With out capital there could be no employment for the laborer, aud as on the reverse cap ital would lie idle and be unproductive without laborers, the probabilities are in favor of tho hypothesis that they will al ways mutually regulate each other. But when laborers claim to fix their own rates and will not work for less nor permit others who are willing to do so, they vio- ate every principle of personal liberty. The primary canoe of all the present distress of business aud general industry was the Salmon P. Cuase Issue of seven nun area minions 01 paper money. Cincinnati Gazette. Ah, indeed! And how was it when Judge Chase, at the bead of theSupreme Court, decided that in timo of peace this paper money could not bo a legal tender. and President Grant thereupon appointed two new Judges to reverae this decision and keep ftie seven hundred millions of paper money still going? Wasn't that inuecetjt performance ot Urant another cause of all the present distress?

ADLPLO- MA wai awarded to t tins Magnesia, by the American Institute in 1853. This very useful and elegant preparation is used as an aperient antie acid in dyspepsia complaints attended with acidity with very great benefit. It has the advantage over common Magnesia, in being dissolved, and thetefore not being liable to accu mulate in the bowels. It is decidedly superior to Carbonate ot Soda or Potash, on account of its aperient quality. This solution ot Magnesia is found particularly beneficial as a pleasing sedative and aperient, in ail cases of Irritation, or acidity of the stomach, febtlle complaints, Infantile disorders, or sea-sickness. An ounceortwo oi mis solution speeoiiy removes heartburn, acrid eructations and sourness, or irreg ular digestion. The solution is oi ltseu an aperient, ont its laxa tive properties can be much augmented by taking with it, or directly after it, a little lemon uic, mix ed with sugar and water, or even with cream of tar tar; in this manner a very agreeable effervescent draught can be sarely taken at any time during fever or thirst. The antisceptic qualities of ting joint I on, owln' to the presence of so much carbonic acid, have been ronna verv vainanie in puma ana otner lever, as lotion lor to mouth, it sweetens tne oreatn, and the Magnesia cleans the teeth from tartar.
