GEE AT CALAMITY.
A great calamity befell St. Louis on
tlie morning of tbe 11th Wednesday,
involving the loss ot the Southern Hotel
bv fire, anJ the destruction of a large
number of people, variously estimated
at from one to two hundred, a large
number of whom were womeo. It was
a fearful calamity, and casts a gloom
over the whole city. Loss on building
and furniture probably one million.
WAR IX EUROPE.
It was thought at one time that the
Iroublo between Russia and Turkey
would have a peaceful solution by the
aid of other European powers. Late
dates, however, indicate that such a
consummation, however devoutly wish
ed , will prove as dead ashes, and that
a bloody struggle will soon ensue be
tween the sick man of Europe and the
Czar of all the Russia?. It is not al
together unlikely that a proclamation of
wat will be issued by one or the other
powers to-day. In the meantime our
Farmers will do well to get in all the
: grain possible, as some one mst feed
life vast armies that will be brought in
to requisition in case of a great Europe
-4 PEACEFUL SOLVTIOX.
Captain Joseph, the'Xez Perces Chief
who proposed to right rather than give
-up the Wallowa valley, it is said now
-disclaims any but the most pacific inten
tions toward the white men ; in fact, he
is very 'sweet," and shows a disposition
to extraordinary good feeling toward
rthe Boston men of that section. It is
noticeable, however, that this extraor
dinary state ot things has all came
-about since the military were ordered
to occupy Wallowa valley, to look af--ter
the interests of the settlers on those
Ticb lauds. However, no matter what
itbe considerations that has led the great
Indian Captain Joseph to conclude not
to dig up the "hatchet," the fact that
'the difficulty apprehended in the seltle
"ment ot tha Wallowa valley matter is
to be settled without bloodshed will be
smost gratifying to all, and will be hail
ed with special pleasure by those hardy,
i enterprising settlers who have squatted
-on and desire to till the rich soil ot the

"The Louisiana commission proposed
that all the members of the Legislature,
-whose eats were undisputed, should
meet in one body, when they could set
tle who -was the rightful Governor ot
the State, as well as all other matters
that belong to that body. The Nich
olls party at once and peremptorily re
fused to act on the proposition. If the
proposition of the commission could be
acted upon, the question of the Govern
orship, and all other questions rightful
ly belonging to the Legislature of Lou
isiana, would soon be quietly and peace
ably settled. But this state of things
would not suit the Nicholls party ; they
demand that Nicholls be sustained in
. bis efforts to hold the office of Govern
or, whether he is entitled to it or not !
Demagogues will find it impossible to
make the people believe that the man
Nicholls is either a patriot or a martyr.
Democratic papers now claim Presi
dent Hayes as their man. They say
"Johnson came to the Democratic party
voluntarily ; Hayes will be- iorced to
come to it, and the result will be a
Democratic admiuistration." This in
dicates that the administration of Presi
dent Hayes, so far at least, meets the
approbation of the people, and therefore
it would be suicidal in these papers to
traduce bim. They therefore take the
other tacK, and claim as a reason for the
support they are forced to give the
President reluctantly or otherwise, that
bis administration iciU be a Democratic
one ! "A poor excuse is better than
none," is an old saw ; and we are glad
to see the better class of Democratic
journals all over tho country coming up
to the support ot our President. Ilej is,
and should be, the President of the
whole people; and when all men and
all parties take Lold and heartily help
the President in Ms arduous task of
" governing this great country of ours, it
will be much easier and pleasanter for
the Chief Executive, and the people
will be better governed and better satis
fied with the head of the Government.

CJfAXGE YOVE TACTICS.
If the Democratic party would ever
hope to succeed, it must make a radical
change in its tactics. For the last six
teen years it has kept up a continuous
whining and fault finding. Instead of
tins, it must advance some proposition
at least for bettering things. The peo
ple have heard the Democratic fault
finding and complaiuing about Repub
lican wrongs, and all the time these
complaints were Yinging ia their ears
they have seen the country, under Re
publican rule, prosper as it never had
before, and they have been convinced
that these charges and continual whin
ing about wrong doing, corruption and
rascality ot the Republican party, in
the light of pissing events, are lies,
made through ignorar.ee' or absolute
Democratic mendacity. When yon tell
the people that Republicanism is ruin
ous to the country, they will tell you
that under Republican rule IT. S. 4J-
per cent, bonds to-day are worth over
seventeen per cent, more than gold, and
they will ask you if, under Democratic
rule, or even in tho past historj' ot the
country, such a thing was ever wit
nessed before ! Such facts upset these
whining charges of want ot ability,
bad faith and rascality at the hands of
the party in power. Give us a rest on
this whining busines.

Journal is ot more than local interest :
It so happened that six of her school
mates were living in Washington the
day ot the inauguration. These old
classmates still possessed their school
badge, the design ot which is novel and
pretty. The ladies met and conferred
with each other. The result of the con
ference was an order to a florist for a
copy of the badge in buds and blossoms.
This tribute they sent to Mrs Hayes
with the card of each. Mrs. Hayes
quickly recognized the old school badge
in the floral tribute, and wrote a note
of thanks to each of the ladies, and an
invitation to call and see her the next
morning. The invitation was accepted,
and the re-union was full of interest and
pleasure to each one.

Mud Springs all comes from fjnrirtjs which

and he further says that there is a belt ot
