DALLAS, SATURDAY, AUG. 19.
To no class of citizcDS are we , more
indebted for our prosperity as a people
than to the laboring man. It is he
who clears the forest, tills the fields,
builds the railroads, runs the machinery
which makes our fabrics, and keeps the
general currents of life in motion, and
prevents the i stream from . becoming
sluggish and stagnant. The idler the
drone in the great hive of life passes
his1 time in day-dreaming, aud lives
upon the fruits of the industry of the
liborer. ' This should not be so. The
drones in the hive of the world ought
either to bo forced to work, or be served
as the drone is served by the working
bee. There is no way to bring this
about, save by the system of co-operation.
In our country we profess we
have our laws made by the masses ot
the people.- I3ut is this really the case ?
On the contrary, we find that the
working classes have but little or noth
ing to do with these matters; and
while the laborers are busily engaged
in the many and varied pursuits of life,
the drone is busy cogitating and con
cocting some plau whereby he can
increase the laborer's burdens, and
compel them to toil lor his support.
From the highest to the lowest of these
bloated do-nothing-aristocrats, the great
study is to decrease their owu burdens,
and increase those of the laborers.
Under this regime it becomes necessary
that some measures be speedily adopted
for effectually resersing this pracrice.
Laboring men must take more active
interest in the political affairs of the
country ; read and post themselves on
the political issues; and when the time
comes for a political campaign, not
allow themselves to be led by a few
political tricksters, but rise in their
might, tear themselves loose from the
leading strings of political demagogues,
and adopt those measures, and support
only those men who they know will the
best maintain and carry out their best
interests. 11 y a mutual co-operation on
the part of, the laboring clasps, fr.uid
may be kept frcm cur l;u!! of legisla
tion, vice hide itself from our high
places, and a millenium bo ushered in
which shall prove us to be really what
we profess to be a free peor le. A
firm combination and co-operative
movement are the the only things that
will bring about thee much desired
ends. This, and this ouly, will save us
from a monied anarchy, which is a
curso to all countries. This, aud this
only will secure to our descendants
those great blessings which our fathers
labored to secure to us. It is no more
than our bounden duty to secure to our
children the blessings which we desire
for ourselves. And in view of our
responsibilities in this particular, let us
cherish and protect the rights of the
TAMMANY AND THE TIMES.
It now seems probable that we arc to
find out whether or not.the many charges
of swindling and robbery made by the
New York Times against the Tammany
ring are true or false. 3Iayor Hall has
finally yielded to the solicitation of
friends, and consented to enter suit
against the Times for slander. It is
but just that this matter should be
brought up, so that the people may un
derstand whether such frauds have
been committed or not; and if they
have, it is but just that the parties suf
fer the penalty for their crimes. If the
parties are guiltless, simple justice
would demand that they have an op
portunity to prove their innocence.
This trial is just what the Times has
been asking for, and it is to be hoped
the matter may be brought before the
Courts, and through them before the
people in a substantial form.
Examinations in the State Depart
ment at Washington show that in re
gard to the Sati Juan boundary dispute
between Great Dritain and the United
States, a map was published in London
in 1853 by Arrowsmith, a celebrated
map publisher, on which all the islands
of the San Juan group were colored, so
as to indicate that they belonged to the
United States. This map was compiled
from the best -English authorities, and
was published by a man who is acknow
ledged in England as an authority. It
conforms entirely to American claims.
THIS OHIO 1'LATI'OIIM.
Much has been said by both Demo
cratic and Republican papers concern
IngUhe Ohio resolutions ; the former in
many instances denouncing them in as
bitter terms as can be well used. Some
perhaps a greater portion of them-
have accepted the situation, endorsed
the resolutions, aud seem determined to
make the best possible use of them.
Rut in their pretended endorsement
they have carefully concealed the fact
that th$y do not concede the position
that the last three amendments are
bona fide parts of the Constitution.
They evidently still believe, as they
have heretofore, that these amendments
were passed under duress, aud are in
no wise a portion of the Constitution.
A careful readiug of the columns of
those papers which pretend an accept
ance of the situation will convince the
most .skeptical that it is all a pretence,
to delude the unwary and mislead those
who may have become dissatisfied with
some of the measures of the party in
power. It would be an extravagance
which no party would bo foolish
enough to be guilty of, to brand the
passage of the Acts referred to with the
vilest of epithets one day, and the next
turu directly round and accept those
same Acts, without couching the ac
ceptance in such language as to be ca
pable of an interpretation into an
acceptance or rejection, as circum
stances miiiht renuire. This nractice
of double-dealing, without any subtan-
tial -proof of Mueerity, has been j h,u" i
indulged in, that the people have be
come suspicious, and are watching in
tently for some evidence ot sincerity,
before they endorse such measures,
come from what source they may. The !
Democracy may use subteiiu-e- to j
endeavor to blind the people to their
intentions, yet we opine but fjw v.iil be
hoodwinked by them. Retter stand
upon their 4i time honored principles"
out and out, than to undertake to carry
themselves into power by a pretendid
dopt!(-u of the ineattrc which they
have been fighting for yeais, rnd which
everyone who has the leut kiunvkde
of political afi'uiis hoiititij- belLvc they
a e still averse to.
Tin; i:t;'Lj;i.3t.v i.iTV,
Hon. Newton ilucth, the Republican
nominee for (lovernor of California, in
the course of hid recent speech,, made
the following sensible remarks concern
ing the Republican party :
" That which is often said as a re
proach to the Republican party, wo
accept as an honor it has no leaders.
It has ideas. "It represents the average
sense, conscience and patriotism of the
people. It was the valor and patriotism
of the people that fought the war;
their conscience and sense of riht
established reconstruction. The peoph
have risen to the height -of every emer
gency. They have tested every sug
gestion by the principal ol individual
freedom and national union, the center
and circumference of Republican doc
trine, and they have laid tho founda
tions of future policy so broad and
strong, that even its euemies admit the
work is impregnable."
That was a beautiful idea expressed
by a Christian lady on her death-he J.
in reply to a remark of her brother,
who was taking leave of her to return
to his distant residence, that he should
probably never meet her in the land of
the living. " J'rothcr, I trust we shall
meet in the land of the living. We are
now in the land of the dying.'
Tho challenge of Sir Francis Lyell
that he will tfive $250,000 toward the
erection of fifty Methodist chapels in
London during tho next nine years, on
the condition that an equal sum be
given by friends outside the city, has
been accepted by the denomination
with spirit, and 125,000 has already
been subscribed. The work of build
ing the chapels is now going on. They
are to hold at lea-t 1,000 persons each,
and it is found that buildings of this
size, with the necessary school and
class accommodation, cannot be built
for less than 30,000 each. The fifty
chapels will therefore cost 1,500,000.
The United States Supreme Court
has decided that the limitation laws of
the Southern States weto suspended for
the full period between the proclama
tion of the blockade of the Southern
ports of April 10th, 1801, and the pro
clamation of restoration of Federal
authority of August 20th, 18GG. The
elfeet of this decision will be to ro-ojen
the Courts of the Southern States to
ante-war claims of Northern creditors,
and to oive vitality to obligations which
have been barred by limitation under
tho hitherto received ruling of State
Courts. The principle will apply equally
to Federal and Stato Courts. 4
A TALKING MACHINlS.
Inventions and improvements in ma
chinery are becoming so common, that
we hardly get time to! chronicle the ad
vent of one, ere antoher comes up for a
notice. Some are very useful, others
ornamental, aud some arc neither. The
latest novelty is the invention of a ma
chine for talking. May Heaven pro
tect us now ! Talking is already in
dulged in by too many machines en
dowed with animal life. In London
there is now on exhibition a talking
machine, which by ingenious mechani
cal contrivances is made to give forth
utterances similar to the human voice.
It is the iuveutiou of Professor Fabcr,
of Vicuna. The machine has a mouth,
tongue and lips, which are set in mo
tion by a mechanical apparatus, which
sets free. a portion of air from a large
bellows, and so controls it as to produce
the sounds required, i It pronounces
clearly every word required, sings,
laughs, and gives expression to various
utterances of the human voice. Thf
machine illustrates very minutely the
science of acoustic?, and is also a subject
of great interest, as showing how far
inventions may be carried. It, however,
cau never be of any great utility.
