That the public is begirinin;; to appreciate this fact is seen by tu demand for sucn trains on all road. I'cople should not to satisfied until railroad compan in use every known precaution against accidents. Kven if vestibuled trains are coitly innovations," most com pauies can atfordthem the public can aJord no other. - The held case is a sad one in all of its relations and connections. Edward M. field is trying to starve himself in jail, and seems to bo broken-hearted and demented over the unfortunate trouble wuich he brought upon himself. With him it means diraee and rum, as well as reparation from his wife and family. Domestic woe, coupled with financial suUerin;, is about as severe a test as the mind of any man of asensi tivo natura can be subjected. Is it any wonder that young Field is break ing down under such a strain? Iris a matter for coogralvlation that no lives were lost in the asylum fire at lunt;ac. The fir? was a disastrous one in the eitent ot the loss to the state, and riid inquiry should be made re RMd.n its cause and the reiponsibility for it if any exists. If investigation shall prove that the origin was a defec tive Hue then somebody must be at fault. The headway attained by the llams before an alarm was given tug gsts that better applhnces for tho dis covery of fire should be adoptoi in all public buildings of the kind. The task 'of removing hundreds of inmates from such an asylum calls for tact and abil ity not frequently met w.th at time and place when needed. Great credit is due Ir. Curr and his assistants for their Ttry successful work Saturday, TEat'IlKK or Till STATE. Today the State Teachers' association will begin its annual meeting in this city, and no organization in tho state deserves a moro hearty welcome. There can be no question concerning the amount of good the organization has accomplished in the school system of the state. Its work has not teen confined principally toward the im provement of the curricula of our col leges; but it has tnrown the best of its energies into the work of building up our common schools. There can I e no doubt th it the district schools of Miehi Kitn and these are really ouf most im portant educational institutionshave improved more in the past three years than in the fifteen years preee! me; neither can it be doubted that -most of this improvement has been troufht about through the agency of the State Teachers' association. Hap pily the leaders of educat onat thought 'in Michigan are men and women who fcve no time to devote it to the consid eration of that painfully dscused q'Wt.on, "Is teaching a profession They have realised that whethtr teach in.; is prof on, trade, calling, busi- nets, occupation or employment, is im material to the siet ' of wur educa tional institutions and theories.

Tho project of linkine the great lakes with tidewater is of imme&.'Urablo im portance to the northwest. It ia in fact a nece?sary public improvement, in comparison with which all others now contemplated sink into insignificance. That it will bo done there can to no doutt, for the united and determined ctTorta of the commercial men of a vast territory are enlisted to that end. Their combined efforts are a surety for it success. The chain of lakes with their navigable connections are equivalent to a sea 1000 milts in length, and on every side is territory unparalled on the face of the earth m productiveness. The ol tacit in the way of this grand project arc trivial when compared with what has Wen dono in foreign lands. It ia scarcely a greater undertaking than the construction cf the Liverpool and Manchester or tho Amsterdam and Ilelder Ship canals, and these were constructed to afford water communication for single Citic, neither of which is comparable in commercial importance with the city of Chicugo. When one contemplates the iufnllible result of this improve ment and realizes that it will bring shipping bearing the ilags of every maritime nation into our lako port, he cannot help being tilled with enthu siasm. Following upon the heels of this enterprise will come an effort by every city adjacent to the lakes to cre ate for iteclf a waterway that will afford ail the advantages of the highway of commerce. If Grand Ilapids secures the improvement of Grand river, which is now in a fair way to te accomplished, she will anticipate the progress of af fairs and outstrip her less progressive competitors. OAKZA' lirCKRULA WARfAllK. The past week has bnm disastrous to the ambitious bandit Garza in tho sev eral rento.iires ha 1 between his follow ers and tho United States regulars. Our troop hnve ben victorious. Mex ican forces Are now on the frontier and between necrose fire of the forces of the two governments. Garza will to rudely awtkimed from his ambitious dreams of future power and greatness to a realizing sense of the primo neces sity of retir nz into the dcocr wilder neses of the Mexican forrsts, where it is to be hoped he may be indticrd not to tarry but to come forth and aumo the prominence his heart craves, bef ore a jury in'e it upon doing its full duty. That Garza's following has recently been considerably increased, and is now assuming the proportions of a revolu tion may be accounted for by the dis tress and privation all toj prevalent among tne inhabitants of th more northern Mexican states. Ihit that tH distress equals that among Kusiati pcsnt i scarcely to be believed an I certainly can be no excuse for acts of depreJst on and outrsgesirifl tied upon the inutTending, and much hat for overt act committed on tr.i ?uie of the boundary.

Xsw Yorjc, iKc 2o.--In our late advices, we have expressed the opinion thst th vanoas intluence favoring the value of securities would probably begin to show their effect duiing the atur iarl of this month or th tim half of January. The ovaise of the mrket during the pt wtek indicates u.at ucl a movement i juohatiy now vit.ug in. There ha teen a steady jtaiu in activ.ty, aud ueariy every stock on the Iil has hown moie or lit ua piove nent in price. Toward the eloe, there wa nturally some rcthzmir ow mg to the intervention of the holidays and U o piospect of a broken week fol lowing; tut there appear to be more l!mn uie lor to ech o!ler and the tone of the r.lirket is decidedly strong. Intht'l-oud u arkt t, there is consider ubje luyuiK, iu &nt:ctjation of tho in Vitn e:it demand to te forthcoming on the payment of January interest and uii lends, nd the quotations of tu it Caj;es Cotitnus to show an upwaid m aen.ent; which is usually the pre cursor of a ll-o in slock. Although, ordti.ariiy, the close of the Year is at tended with a good deal of portpone ment of speculative buying, yet this year the expectation of a January rise ix utg usually sanguine, it is not im probable thatthp closing week of lH'Jl m ay prove an a live one. Inc i-ranco-Uulgarian incident is ex citing Kur.tf unt asinesp, let it may de velop in'o a cause of quarrel in the in terest of Kusia's ambitions; and it is announced that tne three Dieibuud powers, significantly backed by Great hritair, hve put themselves in opposi tion to France's demands. Here is a distinct clash on the lines on which the great jwiwers are bo sl arplv divided; which inot bo connUt-red unim portant, and therefore excites watchful interest. At tho same time, the inter nal troubles of China are becoming a delicate question as between the for eicu power-. The advances of Kunsia toward the Pamir country are regarded a threatening Chinese territory and the British 'sphere of influence" in India; when therefore the great powers are on the point of an armed interven tion in China, without clearly defined coneert, and some of them havtnglarge territorial ambitions, it is not eay to pay what may come out of such a scramble. It is significant that England stands aloof from any concert d inter vention in ;hina and is planting her bull-dogs on tlo watch against the marauding proclivities oi Kussis. These thimts are sufficient to keep up a certain feverishnesa in financial circled abroad; but such an etl'eet is calculated rather to improve the disposition of European invcftois toward our n-ccn-t.es than otherwise. We alo have our own war speck. Our relations with Chili are becoming more and more threatening, and but a brief space re n a ua for her to choose bttwven ti e al ternatives of satisfaction and war. The worrying silver qtnstionn be coming gradually less feared as an cle ment ot practical finance. It i seeu that public opinion has reached a much rounder aud baftr poitiou on the question than it held eailier. The predominant st ntiiuent of that portion of the public which rally cares about aud examines the question seems to have decided, on the one hand, ncaint an unqualified rejt eti n of th metal, aud, on the other, agamt an indis criminate prnns;o:i ot its free co n ae; and the conclusion is reached that the only safo and feasible method of reconciling these two extreme is through Co ng everything possible to brurg alout an international agree ment, tinder which the leading nations will b.nd thetmelvea to free comaee of loih the metals upon a uniform Lasis of valuation. Most fortunately, the cuneut cf public and o.licial opinion in Euroue ia moving encouragmgly iu that direction. JEnglaud has cflicially expressed her willingness to intio luc silver, into ttie rcencs of the tank of Kng'itnd and lo establish frccomige in ludia; and the strong popular ftel itig of thst count) v now tin img expres- s on in favor or the double standard may easily make the govt r. lucnt an I parliament wul.tig logo beyond tl.ene limits of concession. At the iHme time, tMe president bsa recently receivid, through olMc al sources, revolts much more hopeful as to the prorpi ts of ti metall'.sui in Eurorx than thov; wlroU led him to f peak dubiously oa those chances in hi latn !i:ragc. Wbi!e facts of this character are causmz the n cn of Wall street to view the silver problem as drifting towards a better s -lution than had h n feared, thv see in the operation of the silver Uw a it no w stands a potent element of tail t t on.
