A Broil with Bolivia.
If tho following story, which conies
to us from South America, he cyrmi,
wti liave got oufBeUoi inta what- U
prettj fctiro to proyo a mo6t voxatious
quarrel witll thertioetorous and in
accesfible I'epublic of Uolivia. The
authorities at La l'nz( wo nro tolJ,
conceived that sotrtehtxlj 'was conspir
ing, or was about to cunnpiro ogaintt
tho government," nnd -gavo orders to
arrest all persons who wero not pnrti
zati of AudgurVjb, thk'- pliio'iit' rtler
of Bolivia. Several young men from
their known disapproval of tho con
duct of ? thtp ' gfovl rnmeuV faring ' the
coiisprfuoncVfi, Bouphrprotrction of the
American legation, which was ac
corded them. .The authorities. upon
henriug that persons had tukotrrefuge
at tho 1'gution, determined to take
them out, and for this purpose sent a
force,; tlieir attempt to, enter tho.Lcga
tioh'was resisted liy tho Ministor, wlno
met them at the door revolver in hand,
and threatened to shoot tho first man
that' attempted- to-cross tho threshold;
Tho Bolivians' wero talten aback; rbt
causo they did not count upon the ro
volver business, and they remained
outsido tho door. A piohsenger , wa
Bent to th l'refect, iuforming Iiim of
what hnd happened, who imim.'diulely
fent troop's nnd surrounded tho IiCga
tion, so ns to prevent all ingress or
egress, upou which- tho Minister do
norvodod hipfsspxrt, and hau!il dov n
Iwsilogi;; (?J ! Vi 1'U "A
Now, it is hiphlj probaldo that our
Miimtf-r at Ijii 1jiz, being ono of Mr.
Seward's diplomats, is at least par
tially responsible fr this in?ult which
has been offered us; fur, preposterous
as tho Bolivians urn, they would hard
ly have ventured upon ufking such a
liberty with an American Minister
who respected himself and could mako
his Government respected. But tho
nd&of the nation. bating Weu pulled,
the qiialitieationsof tho Minister sink
ot4 of sight. Wo must compel tho
Bolivians to apologize to us for tho in
sult; and how to do (hat will consid
erably puzzle us, for.thp Boliviaus nrp
asj, iniu.cesibl9 as.theyrar prepcsteiv
ous. In quarreling with them we got
ouTfelves' into' a position 'not unlike
that of Great Britain in her squabble
with tho Emperor of Abyssina. That
enlightened iotcntnt, it will be re
membered, thought Ht to kill sundry
missionaries, and to clap tho British
Consul into a filthy jail beneath the
shadow of tho mountains of the moon.
This happened nearly two years ago,
nnd to tins day all tho power of Eng
land has nvailcd nothing to wipo out
the insult ollVred her slag, or to ro
dress tho injury done to her represen
tative, yecuro in his inland empire,
tho Abyssinian "monarch lolls upon
his mats, nnd listens to his maidens
playing upon the dulcimer, careless of
mankind, and scornful of Sir William
Armstrong's biggest guns. If Bolivia
chooses to bo just such a beast in re
spect of us, wo shall havo' a world of
trouble in teaching her manners. She
has only onb seaport, about one-third
tho size of. Hull,-iu Massachusetts,
and tho harbor of that is for tho most'
part open only, to catamarans, nnd at
high tide. Unless we can bribo or bul
ly I'eiu or Braf l intdiYuaking n.tvay
for us to march nn expedition into the
impertiuent republie, wo shall havo to
nurse our w rath to keep, it warm, and
bo. thankful that our Minister' has
csenpod with his ears. .This is an ex
trenioly unpleasant , etato of aLTurs;
but as not even Uiiclo Sam's web-foet
which according td tho lamented Lin
coln J can' go ''wherever "it is. a little
damp," can .very well travel aver the
dry aud parched Bolivian winds, wo
really do uot .eoovwlmt - we Ttro to do
about Jt., States 'like Abyssinia and
Bolivia jVisscss tho sftmb natural ad
vantogo which tho fapious showman
attributed to a certain animal, who
whenever ho finds' himself hotly pur
sued, takes re f 11 go in his own interior,
fr6nwbich Rftfo retreat he laugh' n
th'1rhpoent malicb of his Tors.' Un
less we can contrive to imitate tho
Baron do Crook, w Witting threaten
fcd by a Hon, thrust his hand down
the throat of the" boast and- -twriH.l
him inside out like a glovo. whereby
the lion instantly died of thahie and
pain," we fear we must submit, with
what patienco we may, to soo Bolivia
for an indefinite time, gyrate htr rin
gers upon her noso at us from the
highest peak of tho Andes.

In a CoClu--A Ludicrous Scouo. y
A few mornings since, as somo of
tho seven1 h ward. police wcto retiring
from their lufs, they were surf.Hs- d
lit'finding nar tho station a corTin,' in
which, was the bod' of ii niftn prepar
ed for" burial;, but from tho snoring of
the occupant they "were satisfied that
h wos not lead v K.r iiitrtnent. With
tllrr cxrpptlon or irie"bllorlT.g; 1L6 I ody
presented every appearuie of" Leing a
genuine corpse the jaws be?ng band
aged, lingers clasped, and tho uual
copper cents enclosed in pupcr on tlin
eyes. Tho ollieers did. not take long
to trrnke up their mind wliat to do
with tho occupant; and tUoy forthwith
aroused him, is hen the. "corpse," after
ono or t"'o turnings,' arose and sa(
upright and after staring around, he
asked, very coolly, Where In the d-l
ami". Ouo of tho ollieers having
laughed until it -ft ns impossible to
laugh fnoro, volunteered 'to explain
and finally the corpse was heljxxl out,
when he took a 'stand at tho foot of
the coffin, and' very solemnly remark
ed: ''This is what we all have to come
to, but I never thought I would efer
Come to it wdiile I lived. Ono thing
this ioko has done for me, - ;1'11 never
drink 'any more, for I kno'w'that I
will always think of this scene Mat
Yarn urn is a sober man." A I ter, these
rotnarks' which were made in a man
ner that show ed Tio was earnest, tho
officers allowed him to depart.
Tho joke was explained the next
morning. It appears that some citi
zens attempted to carry him, to the
station, and seeing the coffin in a yard
near by, (wl.ere it had been left by an
officer of,' the FrcoduienV Bureau
some days before,) formed ? this plan,
thinking that when ho awoke ho wo'd
make a resolution to 6top drinkjng,
and it is said that thus far tho victim
of this practical joke, gives all bar

An immense reform uemonstratiori

Cotton opens firmer," with an adraneo
of CM! v Fal to-day' of 13,000 bales'
mitldling uplands at 14j :u. ' :i;
.IoifDox, Deo. 3. It is estimated
that at least fifty thousand' persons
were in the prooessiou which formed
the imposing feature of the reform
demonstration which took place to-day ,
Nearly all the trades societies were in
ful) forco and marched to the place of
meeting. lorty-seTen ' of these or
ganizsd bodies' togtthor with various
branches of tho reform league, were
in the lino, which, was composed of
four grand divisions under the gum
mice of Marshals and lod. by bands of
music, banners and society insigmas.
It was by far the largest and most
important affair of, tho. kind which
has ever' taken place in 'this country.
Notwithstanding the very unpleasant
state of. tho weather, it is a fact , wor
thy .of notice that tho stars and stripes
waved nbovo the procession in many
places, and was frequently and loudly
cheered." The band,' toy seetned. to
havo caught the inspiration of thooc
cassion, nud indulged in the produc
tion of national airs' of a patriotic
character. Tho.-meeting i ook,. place
in the grounds yf Beuufort House, a
most convenient locution fur so largo
ngnthering.'' '
' Stands were erected for the nccom
modation of the several speakers, .'a
large number wliom were .present on
tho occasion. I no stores in rail Mall
Piccadilly, and tho other' thorough
fares through tho procession was to
pass. Tho people congregated at the
SU Jamos, where tho procession was
formed. Ou the grounds of Beaufort
llouso the greatest order wus- main
tained throughout the 'denionration,
and tho greatest) enthusiasm prevailed.
The moral effect of the whole affair
cannot bo over-estimated. '
FINANCIAL STUPIDITY, ;
Tho . Govt rniiivut of tho United
States is paying $l,0liU,0U0 (riyhtt-cn
iHillltht cf i!uliur) to ' tho ' national
bnuks for fheif truing '.OO.OOO.tXtO

Tho Government is t-n gaged in
withdraw ing from cire ulation it issues
of .greenbacks and permitting the in
ereaao of the curretiey of the banks,
and consequently increasing tho bouus
.t pays them.
Its boiidtd lit Lt is protected from
Statu and local taxation, and aW other
projH'it in. th country ,hi taxed , to
pay six or seven per eenl, interest an
nually upon these bonds.
Instead of paying the bonded debt,
nud thus stopping the - accumulation
of interest, it cancels greenbacks
which are drawing no interest.
The estate of an- individual who
managed his bustaiiws upon ueh prin
ciples would bo taken from him and
placed iu charge of a guardian and
he sent a luuatic asylum. But to use
the government to cheat and rob the
people is the great moral idea of the
Republican party, and this' financial
policy is only one of the. evidences of
the fact. J'rre 'iris.'

Henry Wu'rd Beecher, in a sermon
delivered at Plymouth Church, last
Sunday evening, presented the follow
ing picture of rich mens sons;
Men seenx ashamed of lahor, and

themselves respected in ' lalor have
built up a business and ' umascd a
fortune, who turn to their1 sons and
say: "You shall never do ns I did,
yom shall' lead 0 different -life; you
shall bo spared all this." ; Oh, these
rich men's sons ! They aim to lead a
life of elegant leisure; nnd that is . a
lifo of .emasculated idleness nnd lazi
ness. Like tlio polyp that floats use
