Government that are to be brought
about. How is all this to be accom
plished? This is the great question
that is going to be submitted to the
American people in the next election.
The war is over that contest is over.
Now, what political organization would
be safest for the American people?
Hereafter, where shall we look ? Shall
we look to that party which brought
the Government to civil war to preserve
the Uuion ? Will you look to that
party which ruined the credit of the
nation, so that it could not borrow
money at less than 12 to 30 per cent,
per annum; to that party which inau
gurated the doctrine that to the victors
belong the spoils ; to that party which
now de.-ires further to depreciate the
currency of tle country by issuing mil
lions more of it? If it is believed by
the American people, no matter to
what party they belong, Republican or
Democratic, that the Government of
the country will be safest in the hands
uf these men ; if they believe the men,
many .if whom sought to destroy the
Government, will be more likely to pre
serve it than those who fought for its
existence ; if they believe that the men
who ruined its trade will be more likely
to improve it than they who, when it
was ruined have already re-established
it to a great extent ; if they look for
reforms to them, then it is the duty of
the voter to go to the polls and vote
with the Democratic party. But if the
people of this country believe that

the fashions, and artistic illustrations, give it a eC0l0,y has been introduced into the

What Jlismarck Says About
France and Russia.
The Gastein correspondent of the
London Telegraph gives the following
account of an interview with Rismarck:
Correspondent Prince, I need not
tell you that all Europe had its eyes on
Gastein, and it is eager to know what
deople do there.
Prince People bathe thcro and
ake care of their health. Well, I will
tell you. The King and myself have
really come for the baths, but we are
only too glad to receive the Austrian
officials, and to assure them of our best
consideration. With Austria we had
no quarrel, even when she began her
ill. advised war in 1800. We beat her
off with the paltry ransom of two milli
ons. All is forgotteu and forgiven, aud
we have so many iutcrests in common,
that we must be friends. As such we
receive ana are received here by the
Austnans. We always wish to be
friends. With the French we uever
were and never will be friends.
Correspondent I wonder if you

beaten the Krench, yet how bitterly

who had on the previous Wednesday
made a baloon ascension in the ordinary
way (the first baloon ascent of auy kind
he had ever made iu his life), repeated
his performance on 3Iouday last, but
this time with no basket attached to
his baloon nothing whatever, in fact,
but a common trapeze.
Upon this he seated himself with the
greatest coolness aud composure and
went floating away into space, to the
astonishment of a large crowd which
gathered to see him. Rut few cheers
greeted him, as the spectators seemed
spell bound with fear and apprehension.
Alter ascending to a great distance,
he commenced throwing out a number
of circulars which he had attached to a
hoop below the baloon, and which in
the clear atmosphere appeared like
twinkling stars surrounding the baloon.
