He leaders of the two faction** in
Lousiaua, arc Oov. II. O Warmoth
and Gen. Frank J. Heri-on. Tbe diffi
culty arises in determining who shall
be members of (he State Board of Can
vassers, to canvass the vote in the
recent election. The quarrel over this
arises from the supposition of ono or
both of these gentlemen, that acme
body or bodies are scoundrels and if
permitted to c«uut the vote, it will
uot be done fairly.
This Stale Board of Coiivaa*crs
consists. by law. of the Governor of
the Stato, the Lieut. Governor, the
Re-retary of State and two other
gentlemen. uot State officer*. This
Board, thus constituted was. Gov,
Warmoth, Lieut. Gov. Pinehback,
Gen. Herrou Secretary of Steto, and
two gentlemen by the name of An
derson aud Lynch. Pinehback and
Anderson were however both eondi
d&tes at the Into Stnte election, and
therefore, being- interested parties,
were ineligible. as members of the
Board. This being' the ease, the bal
auoe of the Board met to flu the
vacancies Ilerron made o motion that
Gen. .James Longstreet aud Jacob
Hawkins be chosen, bat these men
being friends of Ilerron, Warmoth,
4* President of the Board, would not.
put the motion, whereupon, Herron
put It himself, and be and Lynch
voting for It, it VM can-ied. At this
poiut, a CoL Wharton entered, hold
ing a Commission from Warmoth,
e* Secretary of State the Governor
having removed Ilerron from tbe of
fice. because as he alleges. Herron has
collected certain toxee which h« fUla
to pay over.
Tb$ question of Warmoth's right
to Ast Herron from office, has been
before the District Coort, and Herron
is. by the deeiasiou of the Court, sus
tained in the possession of the office.
Tills case is about to be taken to the
Hupreme Court. In the meantime,
Warmoth has. with Col. Wharton,
(secretary of State by hi? appointment,
filed up the Board by an election,
and so those two Boards are both
claiming to be the legal one. The
Warmoth Board has the return# and
the Herron Board ha* the official

The Democratic press MlNIt they
a* o in the dim distance the probability
of a row between President Grant and
tbe Republican party, such as occurred
during'Andrew Johnson's administra
tion. In the Philadelphia post office
affair, they think they discern the en
tering wedge to an cmuete and they
fly to it with the same readiness that
the carrion crow does when it scents
its prey afkr oft lint they are doom
ed to disappointment. There is no
tight between the Republicans of Ptnn
sylvaniti and the President in regard to
the matter. AU there is of it is that
two men were, recommended for tho
vacancy, one by Cameron and the oth
er by Forney and his friends, and the
President wisely decided in favor of
the latter, tor the good and sufficient
reason that Fairmau was long chief
clerk in the Philadelphia post office,
and WHS more competent to discharge
the dutioe of tbe office than his compet
itor, aud that under the rules of the
civil service, be was fhirlv entitled to
the promotion. Because Mr. Cameron
did not succeed In getuug his friend
into the position, he is not going to
raise a qnarrel with the Administra
tion, and if be did, it would amount to
uo more than did Forney's factious op
position iu the October election. The
Republican party will support
Gen. Grant en -Manse, as he has proven
his determination to do right, regard
less ot men or factious, and when the
Democracy expect to witness another
Andrew Johnson fiasco, they reckon
without their boat. Thar will never
oeo It.
The result of the Presidential Kte*

the Electoral vote of the old Slave

There is perhaps more variety of
opiaions enteiuined, and the tliP least
well-defined system existing in the
nituds of the people upon this subject
of Civil Service reform, than upon any
other one thing wliich ia likely to be
acted upon by Congress this winter.—
It was made the hue and cry of the
Liberals during the campaign, but not
one, or all of them, ever pretended to
give a plot), or even n decent outline
of the course to be pursued to effect
the object It is wfov for a theorist,
merely, to designate mountain loads
of wrong In the practical workings of
society it L« easy for an egotistical
high-flyer to stand aloof from action
and poiut out after the deed, wherein
others failed and miglA have done bet
tor. It generally turns ont however,
wheuever these theorists or these ego
tists arc by chanco placed in a position
to act, that they stumble as badly, or
even worse than those of whom they
have complained.
it is one thing to point out a wrong
and quite another to provide a remedy,
especially when that remedy Is to erad
icate an error that Itas been Indulged
In by everybody for scores of years.
We feel satisfied that any system of
civil service which serves to found in
thia country an order or olnos of per
son* to have and to bold the appointive
offices of the country, will not be tol
erated by the American people. Mer
it, native ability and general cnltnre,
coupled with honesty and a loyal, pa
triotic heart and life, should tkr over
balance and outweigh any machine
like routine of knowledge, and upon
this basis must or should, we think,
be founded a system of civil service.
The greatest evil to be avoided is
the proportioning out the appoint
ONwteto members of Congress, giving
them as it were the exclusive power in
certain districts, of uaming absolute
ly the party for certain offices. This
is a sourse of great corruption and
evil. It is not only better for the
country at large, but also for the mem
bers of Congress themselves, that they
should be shorn of this power, which
has growu Into an inexorable custom.
We feel satisfied that the present
civil service rules are crude and imper
fect, nor do we expect that'at once the
best system will be adopted. The bias,
the fallacious education of members of
Congress and of the whole people
touching these matters, is incapable of
at once perfecting the refining process
bnt that the administration brings an
honest, earnest heart to the work,
and that the Republican party, which
has shown by its good deeds its good
Intentions, are proper and right hands,
above all others, with whom to trust
the task, we have not the least shadow
of doubt.
Congress convenes next Monday.—
We notice that the N. T. Tribune i
snmes It as a fact, as if it were already
accomplished, that it wlli hold ho call
ed session after March 4th next That
paper is preparing, doubtless to enter
the arena of howling economists if
per chance, Congreas should not find
It convenient to do ft- its newspaper
arbiter dictates.
The business before Congress this
session will be as important as wae ev
er before presented to any Congress,
and will doabtle.ss consume as much
time. The financial welfcire of the
country is a mibjeet needing careful at
tention, and wlli necessarily consume
much time in an Interchange of views.
The condition of a portion of the
South calls for statesmanlike study
and reflection to make the best possi
ble out of It The civil service is a
matter that makes, if adopted really,
one of the greatest revolutions ever
produced in the political field in the
United States. For fifty years of the
history of this Government, during
whieh the country was under the con
trol of Democracy, the doctrine of "to
(he victors belong the spoils" has been
the rule, and which WH distinctly an
nounced in a careftilly prepared speech
by Horace Greeley, their last candi
Tbe war over aud he immediate re
sults looked after, General Grant com
menced, two years ago, to reform the
Civil service and has progressed well
in that direction. This great work!
which will uo doubt be stubbornly
fbnght, is to come before thin Congress,
In short, we feel confident that the
matters of importance pi easing fori
legislation wlli be more than can be
completed during the short session.
The Press generally are prone to
take up and give foil credenee to all
the reports sent abroad upon telegraph
ic wings, aud by the free gossip of
sensational correspondent*. Oof of
the lot there may be same truth, but it
is eertaln that many of these stories
are sadly mixed with untruth, and
some are entirely made up without a
particle of truth to stand on. A too
liberal adoption of all these nice sto
ries is dangerous to the dissemination
of reliable news.
Tbe interest on the bonds of the
Chicago Southwestern railroad which
were guaranteed by tbe Chicago, Rock
Island & Pacific Co., has not been paid.
As a consequence, these bonds are to
be collected by foreclosure of the
mortgage, which was tbe first given
upon the road. This cleans out the
second mortgage holders and local
stock upon the road. This comes
pretty early after the completion of
tho road, but it is only currying out
the plan designed by the wire pullers.
The Prcsideut, in pardoning Major

He was lucky to have been gifted
with the sublime intrepidity under ad

He was lucky in having the wisdom

B«w Paper H«*MI UM VLV* LA B«UM.
[From tbe Boston Adverti*er, Koveiutf»r i.]
Canons results have followed some
of the experiments made upon charred
piapers and documents, and the exami
uations of books in safes which proved
worthless* in the great tire. It has
been t'onnd that what paper-makers
call poor paper, paper considerably
"clayed." stood the bost test. Parch
ment paper, used for bonds aud legal
documents, shrivelled up exceedingly,
and the print blistered so that it could
be read when writing was legible.
Bo it was with the engraved work on
notes. The gliding on account books
bnrned and charred showed ont as
bright and clear as when the books
were new, which brings tip the ques
tion if to introduce gilt-edged account
book* would not be well, on the
ground that tbe gilt would stay the
pueage by fire to the psges within.
Books crammed into a sate so that it
was difflcnlt to get them out, goffered
considerably less than those that were
set in loo.*ely, and In some eases came
oul from safes in which everything
else was worthless, so fur preserved
that the fljnires on their pages eonld be
deciphered. With charred papers,
which could not be transparent by any
light whatever used, it was found af
ter the employment of vitriol, oxalic
acid, chalk, glycerine and other things,
that anything that moistened them to
a certain stage—to which it wi« deli
cate work to get and not pass—made
the lines, words and figures legible
through a magnifying glass. It has
been the almost universal experience
that lead-pencil marks show out all
right where ink marks cannot be dis
tinguished. The success ofthense of
photography litis already been noted.

periments, according to the Lyons
Progres, have been undertaken by the
Vine-dressers' Congress for the pro
duction of artificial clouds. Tin re
ceivers, filled witli a peculiarly prepar
ed tar, were disposed over an area of
manv acres, and when the tar was ig
nited thick white clouds rose into the
atmorphere, and, spreading out evenly
over a large region, remained MIFpond
ed several yards above the soil. The
reader will at once understand the ob
ject and the use of this device. In
seasons when frost is feared the tar
clouds would interpoee between the
crotis and the sky, thus clucking the
night radiation which often causes
such ravages in vineyards urid gardens
both in spring and harvest lime. Thi*
experiment of the French husband

a curious scientific feat—it is A valua

more usefull from the simplicity and
cheapness ot its machinery, a few dol

frost are passed, or till the crop* enn

clothing the field with a protecting
robe of vapor, trikon together with the

A correspondent at Des Moines
writes as follows concerning the new
process of manufacturing gas In that
city. He says:
"The experlmonf of making gas from
petroleum, under tho Phillips & I)ick
luson patent, i* a success. Parties
from various cities,' Chicago included,
havo been here to test it, and all havo
but one opinion—that it is the finest,
purest gas they ever saw. As to its
practicability there is no questlou.
The only thing about it is: Will the
supply of oil hold out? The exponse
is far less than making coal gas. Ex
periments have proved that it can be
made with much less trouble than at
first supposed. Five retorts were at
first put up to "cook" the gas, and it
was thought ten would be necessary to
meet the wants of this city. It is now
proved that three retorts will furnish
oO.OOO feet of gas per day, thus saving
seven retorts and, of oourse, the cal
oric necessary to heat them. This is
no portable, catchpenny affair, but a
