The Graphic sums up tho political situa
tion or the day In the following sensible
manner : "With such a political outlook it
Is obviously bszardous to attempt lo fore
east results. One thing, howevor, is plain :
tho Republican parly has tho field. It has
er late shown more than usual earnestness
and tact. Its efforts to corroct mistakes
and reform abuses are received with gen
eral favor. Its recent financial action has
restored It to confidence with o majoiity or
the people And It Is safe to say that If it
acts with a roasouablo dogreo or wisdom,
aergy and fidelity to tho Interests or tho
nation, Its chance for continuance in pow
er la bolter than that or any or Its nntogo-Isle."

among ether things, lo liavo addresses by

who bad been selected to preside, no doubt
a man who regards himself as an unusual
ly good Christian, refused to Introduce tbo
Unitarian minister, and. was so obstinate
In bis determination that the addresses
had to be omitted altogether. It was prob
ably not much loss to tbo pleasures of tbo

The magnificent brldgo across Iho Miss-
sslppl river ul St. Louis, which was for
mally opened on Iho Fourth, is of national
inporlaiico and may well boa matter or
national pride. Asido from Its success ns
ono of tho most brilliant nchlovomcnls of
ugluecilug skill In an ago marvolous for
such, its practical valuo Is Inestimable.
As llio great region beyond tho Mississippi
river becomes populated and developed,
Iho contr.il position of St. Louis will malto

tion routes to and rrom tbo East. The
great natural water channels flowing to

till more Important railway tracks, which
can far moro quickly take tho looming
products of the West and throw mom into
tho markets on botli sides or tho Atlantic
Ocean. Tho structure now oponod, bow-

that it Is n posltlvo addition lo our contl-
lental svslem of communication j ami wo
may add (that tho tlmo Is not Tar distant
when It will bo occupied night and day to
Its full capacity In sorvlng tho wauls of tho
w nolo nation, and onrlelilng, wo trust, Its
guardian city and builder.
As has huen slaleil herclolore, llio con

wore rteelM'd with almost as much lucre-
lullty as the original Idea of sending a

Lsrilnor demonstrated scientifically could
not bo done, whllo Ihe late Lord Derby
promised to oat the first boat that should
bo sent over. So In this caso a convention

been al work cloven days, and has never

Tho main put of the bridge, It will bo

though this Is but a fraction of tho wholo

shore alone one of tho approaches of trestle
work is over 5000 fed long. Tho bridge It
self Is a two slory structure j llio upper

elgffl feet wide, making a total width of
fifty feet. This Is for carriages and root

upendous enterprise, which certainly re
flects tho greatest credit upm Its projectors
ami architects, and which will permanent
ly contribulo to the development and pros
perity of tho whole country.
Previous to tho formil opsning or me
bridge it was subjected to the following sc
ore test :
Savon locomotives were placed npin one
track of eacli span. This produced a do-
flection of 'JJ inches on tho center span and
i inches on each sldo span. Seven loco-
olives wore then placed on cscli track tf
tho west approach, and both trains of loco
motlvoj, fourteen in nil, were moved out
abreast and .simultaneously over each ono
of the thrco spans. Tho locomotives
weighed from So lo Si tons, averaging 40
tops each, making 00 tons In all. Thotwe
trains thus formed were stopped on each
span and tho effects of tho load carefully
noted. The dellectlon of the nilildlo span
was 21 inchos j of osch sldo span, 3 Inchos,
Tho two trains moving abreat upon each
arch was tho severest posslblo lest to pro
duce distortion of tho curve of each arch,
Ten locomotives were then coupled logclh
anil tlioo were run over each track on
each side of each arch of the entire bridge,
covering the entire track of each span, and
throwing tho wholo weight of tho train,
100 tons, on ono aldo of each span. This
tost was applied to each sldo or the brldgo,
and produced the severest twisting strain
to which each arch can bo subjected. The
vertical dcllietlon produced by this lest on
the center span was 2 inches. The loco-
motives thus coupled were run at a speed
of ten miles nor hour. Tho local traffic on
tho tipper roadway of tho bridge was unln
tcrrupled during tho progress of Iho tests.
Various other observations In detail were
made, noting Iho effects of tbo load on the
arches ps It entoi ed upon and left the dif
ferent spans, but this possesses no special
Interest to tbo general public. Tho result
of tho tests agreed almost exactly with Iho
thcorellcal.compul.itlons previously made,

whoso body was round a low days since

Curran girl came in for papers. I told her
there was a store or thorn down stairs, Sho

my hand over her nihuth, and with my

my right hand. I then dragged her to be,
hind the water-closet, laying her head fur

and asbes on Iho body, I look the ashes
from n box in tho cellar. I sent a boy to

Robert Smith, whom his celebrated
brother Sydney always alluded to as Po
but, was a lawyer, and was engaged 00
one occasion lu argument with an eminent
pbyslcian regarding tbe merits or their re
spective professions. "You must admit,"

doeanot makoangels of men," "No," was Ibe
retort ; "thereyou bavo tbe best of It ; yours
eertalnly givos them the first chance."
At Patlersou, N, J., nlue chickens
were batched out of a nest or eggs tbst
happened to get covered up In S manure
heap. Tbe natural warmth or tbe manure
did tbo business, In Ihe absence or the old
Gkx. Howard. The finding or tbe mil
itsry court or inquiry In tbla caae was
made known to the country some lime ago,
Tbe publio bas also a tolerably accurato
general notion of the drift or tho court's
"opinion." The chief, points aro: That
Oen. Howard bas not knowingly and will
fully done wrong. That the Freed meu'a
bureau was a very big tblug. That ho die
charged the onerous duty imposed upou
nun 10 ibe best or bis ability. That bis ac
counts were approved by tbe treasury offi
cials. That tbe executive department of
tne government cannot go baok of tholr
approval. That while aome or bis official
Investments may not bave been strictly lo
gal, llie were very excusable, and do no
Involve any traoe or moral turpitude,
That he was unlucky In aome of bis subor
dinate.. That It Is not bla fault ir there are
a few outstanding accounts still to be ad
Justed, Upon those grounds, the court
finds that Gen. Howard "did bis whole du
ty, and deaerves well of his country." It
is not to lie den'.eil, however that "his
couutry" wishes that Gen. Howard's in
vestlgatlou had been a little more lliorouuh
and that, If possible, bis exbonerstion bsd
been a lllile,more oomplee,
