The Springfield Republican thinks
ihere is great danger in the sugges

eel along- wilh the money still unex

an extra session. 1 lie reason is: "ii
the country found out that it could
get along nafelr aud even happily for
six months without an army, or with
one oft only 4,000 or 5,000 men,- it
minht insist that Congress should
form the habit of omitting the Army
Appropriation Bill every year, and so
save twetlty or thirty millions to the
tax payers."
Having adopted Democratic ddfi
trines the present head of the Radical
party would gladly seire opon the
Democratic organisation. But Dem

through their organization that those

a matter of necessity, and will deem
it their duty to preserve such a use

A locomotive engineer, just dis
charged, revenged himself by saying
that it was about time he left the
company, anyhow, for the sake of
hia life, for "there was nothing left of
the track but two streak ol rust and
the light of way."
And now comes little George Gor
bam, and remarks "that the election
of Packard was as clear as thatof the
Hayes electors of Louisiaua." No
one will dispute with little Goorgy
about that natter, iforoifto'in bis
life he is right. Paokard has as good
a title as Hayes. The trouble is, Unit
liayes had noue at all. It must be
horribly galling to littlo Goorgy and
mo rest ot las tribe, inoluding the cel
ebrated "eight." to find that niter six
months of outrageous and persistent
iving crowned by the penury ol the
eight, that the man who has reaped
the benefit of that rascality; b$ his
acts shows that the whole proceeding
was an infamous iraud. ho wonder
that Blain's exceesivo anger palsies
his tonguo, no wonder that old lieu
Wade blurts out all sdrts of incoher
ent ipluttorings, no wonder that Wen
dell Phillips rants aud Cameron
sneers, while Chandler is fairly beside
himself with mortification and raze.
They alltiave reason to be incensed.
The wholo pack ot them, one and all,
Iroin Steams and J. Maddison Wells
to Chandler arid Morton, lied and lied
and lied again.
The Returning Boards lied and the
Congressmen aud Senators aud Su
preme Court Judges lied, all for tho
purpose ol not only lying Hayes iuio
the i residential Ulmir, but ot main,
taining the "bloody shirt" iufaniv
aud the carpe't baggers in ollico. Yet
in spite of this Niagara of mendacity,
the man who profited by it, calmly
and sweetly though tacitly admits
that all his kind frtchds wero to say
the of it mistaken.' That, tfa
Mr. Crnggs says, "is putting a very
tine point ou it." But they aro just
ly served. No punishment is tco se
vere, no humiliation too galling for
them. They have incurred the repro
bation of every good citizen, on ac
count of the ineffable disgraco they
'lit on the American name; on
account of the imminent peril in
which they placed the most sacred in
stitutions oi the country. It ii good
to see them defeated, disappointed
and disgusted.
luat tho country satuly passed
through tho terrible danger to which
ft was exposed by their villainy, was
not owing to their efforts. 1 nut was
effected by the good sense of tho mass
of iho people, tho magnanimous for

and tho heroic self depTal of the cilia-ens
of that section, who lor nearly

inspire and invent. S. K Examiner.
The application of this term is local
ised in the South. At the close of luo
rebellion, when the Administration
was doubtful about whom it could
trust, most of the federal appoint-
mints for the boulh were from among
Northern loyalists. Ihen there wis a
class of Northern men, hiving status
lor patriotism during the war, who
went South, and, ingratiating them
selves with the colored voters,ullained
elective position. This latter class had
little to lose and all to gain. "Make hay

At the cloke of the war the debt of
Che State was 4,0U0,U00. Under tho
provisional government to 18G7 it ran
up to tlU.UOU.uw r rom this tigure
it grew td' 822,430,000. Of this in
crease' of $ 12,500,000, added between
18C7 and' 18 1 r, a correspondent of the
New York Tribirtio say: According
to the statements of eminent bankers
of both parlies, about 0,000 ,000 was
stolen. A people thus r jbb d' could
not be otherwise than restive, Dor
have other feeling for the "carpet
bagger" than hatred atid contempt.
Agriculture, said .Socrates, is an

It is the common nurse of all person)

Tlie Disgrace of the Supremo Court.
Nothing can better illnetrato tho
present degradation of our politics,
remarks the New York Sun, than the
fact that tho vacancy on the Bench of
tho Supremo Court ot tho United
Mates is sought after by the partisan
methods and machinery which would
be used in seeking a place of messen
ger in one ol tlio Dcpartriients.
Recommendations' lor at least "5
aspirants, including several Judges of
the vircuit and District Courts, have
actually been hlee m tho olhce ol the
Attorney-General at Washington.
Many others have applied for the
place through their friends in Con

modestly advocated their own

eral qualification is mosi, lit lo fill it.
The Court has declined enormously'
in public estimation. The shameful
bargain by which Rrndlev and Strong
were appointed to sustain the legal
tenders by upsetting a former decision
of the Court and thus saving to the
'ennsylvania and other raihoad cor
porations tho difference between culd
and paper on thoir outstanding con
tracts, struck a blow at the integrity
of tho tribunal. Followed by the
flagrant violation of the Constitution
in the appointment ot iho Electoral
Tribunal, and by the indcocnt ootion
of tho samo two men iu that body,
the Court staggers under a burden
and a reproach which may yet render
necessary its total ro-organization.
And now when another vaeanty
occurs, by which an opportunity is
ottered to , restore tho Court so far ns
tho appointment of one honorable
mid capable man inighl contribute to
its purification, it is huckstered in the
market like a piece of merchandise,
and tinder the system of bargain and
sale which Mr. Hayes calls his "noli

highest political - bidder! Examiner.

A good cement for mending almost

consistency of thick cream or iresii

mending stone jars or any other
coarse carthenwaro, stopping leaks in
seams of tin pans- or wasli boilers,
cracks and holes in iron kettles, fco.
I have tilled holes an inch in diame

may also bo used to fasten on lamp
tops to tighten loose nuts, to secure
loose bolts whoso nuts are lost, light
