Tin: terrible execution of the
English iloet upon the defences of
Alexandria has raised anew the
discussion relative to cur coast
defences.' It is an indisputable
fact that the poorest and oldest
fashioned of the English iron
clads could Jay waste any of our
coast forts in a few hours. Fort
ress Monroe is the only one that
would stand any show, but the
'combined fire of two such terrible
engines of destruction as rained
blows on Alexandria last Friday
would reduce that famous defense
to a dismantled mass of rubbish in
a few hours. t may be regarded
as a settled fact that the only de
fense the United States could inter
" pose in case of necessity would be
vessels equal in destructive power
to'those of England. These ves
sels are not in existence on this
side the world. They have been
bought and paid for; millions have
been expended in government
ship yards and stolen by govern
ment pets and proteges, but in
case of a war with England, or
indeed any foreign power except
Switzerland, this country would
be at the mercy of its opponent.
It is a standing national disgrace
that such a state of affairs exists.
Take the case of the three moni
tors which were contracted for b'
tlie government, at an enormous
expense in 1875. One of them,
the Miantonomah, had expended
tmoer three million dollars on her
construction, and the contractoi
Mr. John Iioach, a gentleman who
says we must have "protection.""
had Iter condemned ly a private
board, and he bought lier back
without the vessel over leaving
his ship yard, for thirty-two thou
sand dollars. It is a characteristic
of, ."protection." TIic Inflexible
. was also built at a cost of $4,'24-7,-jpiflTQ,
and when she was about
ready to he launched the builder
discovered that owing to some mis
take in calculations she couldns
float. The Puritan cost $4-,20G,-421.
It has been proved that her
guns are of an inferior model dis
carded by the English and French
government fifteen years ago. The
Dreadnaught cost' .5,OOS,GJi.'5. No
man can be found willing to at
tempt to l.'inncli her. Here wo
have millions upon millions of the
people's money that for all practi
cal resullauL might as well be
. thrown in the ocean. .Scattered

little burrows, styled by courtesy,
I'forLV1"Jirian-iii a v&ir with Enjr
land, and two ol those. English
lurreleu vessels steaming past
l;-oit i'oint to shell ban r rancisco.
The gunners at the forts with their
old smooth-bore affairs, might as
well throw clam shells at the ves
sels. Imagine -one at the mouth
ot the Columbia. On the coast
defense chart is marked in all the
glory of blue ink diagrams, "Fort
. Stevens, and Fort Canby." "What
would, the' amount to? not so
much as the traditionary row of
But men say, "Oh, England and
the United States are one people
in thought and feeling. Thev'll
never fight again." Those people
never heard' of cousins fighting,
likely. All this stuff about our
English cousins is very pretr, but
there is only one way possible to
keep respect, and that is to require
ait. JLt is vnh nations as with indi
viduals. If we see a man that we
know- can take care of himself
. and whose muscles are in good
trim, we naturally think twice be
.. . fore knocking any chips off his
shoulder. Some day national inter
ests will conflict and then John
Bull will bang away, in demand
to home feeling, whatever the
-"' country that arouses his ire. True,
he got - his breakfast in 7G, was
given a smoking hot dinner in
; 1812, and possibty could be ac-
. -cbmmodated with a warm supper
at any time he called for it, but
the vessels to do the" -cooking in
are not at hand, and arc scarce in j
time of need.
Fou the first time in main
years Pennsylvania has a triangu-j
lar political contest. It is not a!

is a good time to upset me
Cameron rule; so the independent
wing of that party has put up a
state ticket, and made a square
issue; "shall Cameron or the He
publican party run the politics of
Pennsylvania."' From present
appearances 'twould seem that the
Democrats have an excellent
chance to creep in, and they are
making use of all opportunity.
Tin: most important newsfiomj
Egypt is that a holy war has l":i :
proclaimed. That means to the
fanatical Moslems utter extermi

banner of the Prophet is raii-ed :il

massacre of all resident Europeans

The pilot law, formerly existing
for the ports of Puget Sound, li.is
been abolished, though pilots are
still plying their vocation at the
entrance of Juan dc Fuca straits.
They hold no license, and captains
or masteis of vessels wishing to
employ them, can make the best
possible bargains with them, a no
fixed rates are established bv law.
A Nkw Voinc tough, named
Wilson, submitted to l)eing
knocked down twenty -seven times,
last Mondav. in New York, i)efore
a crowd of 1 ,000 people. The
knocker then paid the knoekee
$1,000, and all hands got gloriously
boozy.- The dispatches call it "a
glove fight for the championship."
There seems to be a certain
amount of reluctance manifested
by messengers in carrying any
document to Arabi Pasha from the
Egyptian, ministry. The fiict that
he beheads' ovo.ry messenger that
arriws, doubtless has something to
do with it.
