Friday. Attgart 3. 13774 Supply and Demand. We take from the Memphis Appeal the following argument in favor of another Pacifie railroad: If anrtMne were wantimr to nrove the necessity for the Thu Pacific Railroad, from Marshall to Han Diego, without touching or connecting with Huntington's so-called Southern lino, the discrim inating rates o( freight by the Central and Union Pacific roads would be an melon t," the road ana employes. 3. That provision be made for stautory arbitrations between employers and em ployes to adjust controversies, reconcile in terests, and establish justice and equity between them. oar national and state authorities in their efforts to enforce the supremacy of the law. yet we do most heartily sympathize with the condition ot trie honest and industrious laborers, who are willing to work but re main unemployed, or are employed at wages inadequate to comfort and indepen deDce. and as an earnest of our desire to find a remedy for their condition we recommend 1. That congress establish a national bureau ot industry. 2. lhat congress exert its authority over all national highways of trade by pre scribing and enforcing such reasonable regulations as will tend to promote the safety of travel, secure fair returns for the capital invested, and fair wages to the em nlrtVAQ ftVAVDlthnif mr i a tret b v. a nnm Art f iftft. If there is auch a necessity, the road proper discriroinati onf.and the aggrandize- will te built. Whatever materia.1 thing ment of officials at the expense of shippers there is a real and adequate need for, will in due time bo produced. The law of supply and demand is sure and irresistible. As soon as the necessity is felt, the new railroad will be created, and then the mo nopoly rates of freight will come down liut our Memphis contemporary weans that the Federal government ought to interfere and build this railroad by sub sidies. This is the sort of necessity which it supposes to exist in the case: but it is m necessity at all. The Federal govern ment has no business to build railroad?. It was not organized for such a purpose, The constitution gives it no authority to do such a thing. Tho existing Pacific Railroad was only built as a war measure, as something necessary in order to defend and maintain the unity of the country in time of civil war. But this is a time of peace, and there is no reason whatever for building a new railroad by subsidies from the national treasury. The real sense of the argument adduced iq tavor of subsidies for the southern Pacific Railroad is not that commerce and the public interests feel a necessity for such a road, but that it will be profitable to certain private capitalists and specula tors. It is to make them rich that the money of the people is to be taken out of tho treasury. That is the only necessity there is in the case. SOAP. uedxcaS HnufocttLrers . S. 0. DUNBAR'S FLUID IMAM ESIA Superior to any English or American MA was awarded to this Drinking Beer. In the last number of the Contemporary Jltvicw of London, Dr. Charles Graham discusses at length the subject of beer and its bearings on the temperance question The quantity of beer produced in England annually is prddigious. In 1S73 nearly sixty million bushels of malt were con sumed in its manuiacture, and nearly a hundred and fifty thousand people were engaged in retailing the beverage, while enormous quantities were exported. Be sides beer, the English people made in the same year more than thirty million gallons of spirits, or about one gallon for every man, woman and child in the United King dom. The great trouble in England, as here, is that poor men, having few facili ties for social intercourse at home, go cut to the gin places to meet their friends, and they there yield to the temptation to drink more than is good for them. Dr. Graham therefore urges the opening of cafes by local bodies, where only mild beverages shall l e sold, the sort of gardens which are so frequent in Germany, and where it is rare to see a drunked man. He. would have tho brewers manufacture what be calls a conversation beer, which shall con tain very little alcohol; and be would seek to make the cafe the resort of the whole family, as it is in Germany. Dr. Graham's snggcptions may be wisely studied by our own teetotal reformers. Ohio Republican Platform. The following is the full text of the plat form adopted by tho Republican state con vention of Ohio, at Cleveland. Tho pre amble starts off with as big a lie as satan ever fathered, and then of course, it is in i r m oraer to endorse iiaycs. laken as a whole it is a wesk affair, and will disap point tho whole country for the reason, previously given out, that it would outline the national policy of Hayes. More than ever docs this stamp Hayes as a fraud. Here is his national policy: The Republicans of Ohio, in convention assembled, congratulate the people that during the long term of their control of the affairs of the state no stain has bee found upon their ieoord as a party; that their management of local affairs has been true to the moral and industrial interests of the people, and, therefore, they confi dent point to the past as the best evi dunce of their intentions for the future. On uuti mat questions the Republicans ot Uluo claim the same fidelity to right prin ciples and practices that they have ex hibited in local and state affairs. Appeal ing to the determination of the people to maintain republican principles and prac tices, thev offer for the candid considera tion of the voters of Ohio the following platform of principles: Resolved, That we reaffirm and adopt tho platform and i resolutions ot the ua tionalconvention of the Republican party adopted in thojeonvention at Cincinnati in June, 187C. HwAvrd, That the Republicans of Ohio reaffirm their unfaltering couGdeuce in Rutherford B. Hayes as a statesman, patriot, and a Republican, and cordially approve and support his efforts for the pauitietttion of tho country, and the estab lishment of its civil service upon a basis of purity and efficiency. J!eohed, That we reaffirm it as the unalterable purpose of the Republican party to maintain and enforce the provi sions of the recent amendments to the Federal constitution, guaranteeing the equal rights of all citizens before the law, irrespective oi race or color, ana to insist on the lull and effectual performances by the Federal government in the execution ot all its powers and of its constitutional obligations in that behalf. Resolved, That we are in favor of both silver and gold as money that both bduII he a legal tender for tho payment of all debts, except where otherwise specially provided by law with coinage and valuation so regulated that our people shall not be placed at a disadvantage in our trade with foreign nations, and that both metals shall be kept in circulation as the money of the nation, as contemplated by the con stitution, and we demand the remonetiza- tion ot silver. JieMolved, lhat we are opposed to any luruier grants oi puoiio lands or money subsidies, or the extension of the public credit of the general government to aid in the construction of railroads. Jiesolecd, lhat we are opposed to the renewal of patents by act of Con Drnan which are burthensome and onnreiv t the masses of the people, and especially to tne UDoring classes. Resolved. That we view with alarm the present disturbed condition of the country as evidenced by tho extensive strikes of th workingmen, and followed by the destruc tion of life and property in different parts ui mo oouuiry; ana while we deprecate each and every resort to violence and dis order, and cordially appro? the action of What Secretary Sherman Thinks. Secretary Sherman is reported to have said In Washington, tho other day, that if congress will only give him power he can resume specie payments very quickly. Me has a good deal of gold in hand, and he re ports that owing to the dullness ot the times sixty millions of greenbacks are now on deposit in the treasury for. safe keeping, all owned by private persons and bearing no interest. He thinks this idle money would be readily exchanged ' for bonds if he had authority to cancel below the three hundred millions limit. Meantime there are people who, in spite of the fact that we have thus an immense surplus of currency, and that the resump tion act authorizes unlimited free banking, still cry out that the country is ruined by contraction. I here is, in tact, no demand for all the greenbacks and bank notes now in existence. Lnterpnseis dead; every body who has money is waiting for re sumption before embarking in new ven tures. The country remains poor and workingmen stand idle, not because there is not money enough, but because it has no fixed value. If congress,when it meets in October, will promptly adopt measures to hasten resumption, tXat will induce the owners of money to plan new enterprises at once. If to day, we had reached re sumption we should see hundreds ot new enterprises begun, and before six months there would be a general demand tor laboring men and a rise in wagns. It is useless to expect this turn upward to De gin while resumption is delayed. No pru dent man will make permanent invest ments in new undertakings while the car rency question is open, and no speculator can borrow money. If the workingmen want to see hotter times they ought to pe tition congress to hasten resumption by every possible means. A. 1. Herald. A question here, would it not do just as well if the workingmen were to petition congress to delay resumption by repealing the resumption act, the act demonetizing silver, and agreeing to let the finances oi tho country severely alone.

First amonsr the requisites of the toilet is a good article of Soap, but to procure it is not always an aaxv matter. Manv of the most expensive Soaps in the market are made from coarse and deleterions materials, and their delicate coloring and fragrant perfume too often conceal the most repulfive im purities. The disclosures recently made public regarding this sutijcct are positively startling, ana deserve serious consideration. Sci'iitert Soaps are now known to be extremely objectionable, especial lv if applied to the head : injuring the hair, irrita ting the scalp, and lmlncing severe headaches. The character of the iuirredients may bo inferred Irom tha statement of a ircntlemen who makes the scent ing of Soaps his business; he recently declared that pertons engaged in this employment were short lived; from seven to ten years being the lonpi-st period during which the occupation could be lol lowed. The difficulty of procuring a perfectly pure arti cle of toilet sottp Is at last obviated, however, thanks to the enterprise and chemical skill of Mr. B. T. Babbitt, of New York, the world-renowned Soap Manufacturer, whoce immense establishment is by iar the greatest of the kind In the United States. The renown of Mr. Babbitt's various pro. ductions has for many years been widely dissem inated, hut this latest success is the appropriate crown to the numerous victories nircauy achieved After vears of patient labor and scientific expert ment, Mr. Babbitt has succeeded in perfecting the composition of the flreat toilet soap ever Intro' duced. The principal ingredients are the purest vegetable oils; the manufacturing processes are entirely new and original, and the result is simply unpara.lrled in this department of industry. "B. T.
