They have given an uti* | equivocal manifestation of their feelings and their disposition in the attitude they have ! atsunied toward the Spani?h Republic. Xoue of the European Oorrrumcnls? with the ex-; ccptlon of .Switzerland, itself a Republic? j have yet formally recognized it, and most of i their paper-, even those which make a pre- j tense of liberalism and advanced ideas, look , on its establishment?the new? of which) thrilled with joy every loyal heart on this side of the occ-an?with marked chagrin. Since, however, it would be evidence of great lack of wisdom and of the consciousness of their own weakness, were they to betray their fears r,t this sudden growth of republicanism, they vent their anger and their grief by pointing out ail the dangers and difficulties that threaten the existence of the young Republic, by dwelling on its inherent weakness, by belittling and calumniating the noble men to whom its establishment is due, and by predicting its speedy, Inevitable overthrow-, to be sure, not ta a spirit of wellmeaning apprehension and solicitude, but eaccringly, with malignant joy over th" crash that they anticipate. it is not to he denied that meanwhile clouds have gathered and storm- arisen on the horizon of the young Republic, and, to a superficial observer, it might appear as if j those prophets of disaster had judged the J situation correctly. An impartial glance, however, is sufficient to convince any one open to conviction that the present troubles, far from originating in the nature of republicanism, or from being inseparable from republican institutions, are almost entirely the work of the arch-enemies of republicanlam ami i . It HUB. tllcC'l: u.c'OD?')SCd ! to each other the Federalists and the- advocates of centralization, yet the Kepuhlicans of ail shades have thus far manifested so tjjuch patriotism, wi-dom, moderation, and j regard for law and order, that it can afrly ' bo cs=unied that they will not jeopardize the , existence of the 1'opul f.- by a conflict that would necessarily result in a division of their j forces, which, at the present moment must prove ruinous to their cause. On the contrary, it i; through the combined machinations of the Carlist- and Aifoasists who, for the sake of expediency, have formed a fusion, which, though probably of short duration, has increased their momentary slreugth; it Is through the intrigues of Montpensier and his adherents, all together sworn enemies of republicanism, that the present precarious state of affairs has ' >. brought about, and those enemies gall?? vhlitional strength from the moral support of the most powerful tnonarehs in Europe, Russia, Austria, the German Empire, and England vio with each other in ill-will towards the republican Government of Spain ; Vi. P r Emmanuel has a particular spite because the Spaniards proclaimed the Republic instead of calling back j Amadcus, and nu enemy even more formal- 1 able, because the nearest neighbor, Is Mr. j Thi ers, who, although hansel! the President ! of a nominal Republic, is as intensely hostile ; to republicanism as Prince. IlUmnrck. He, ; too, withholds his recognition, and, while j during the reign of Amadcus, he kept a most' vigilant watch on the frontier again 3t '.b? j Carlist?, he has actually recognised them as' belligerents. Thus the Spanish Ilepuhdic1 stands really isolated, surrounded by outside , enemies and infested by conspirators. If, j nevertheless, she weathers the stonnagainst i their combined efforts, as we hope she will, j her triumph will be a- glorious a proof of the I strength of republican'-m a* of the wieloni and patriotism of her rulers and i.er pec;de. j The 4 Iv SI Str.iicf Scheme?Its !'? iu?t mill Aiiii'ftepuhllcan Features.

Mr. Curtis, who iuvented tha details of the scheme, ha- taken offense at this exercise of the discretion the Constitution not only invests him with, but imposes ) a- a d'./_e, and has resigned his position a' li- ad ei the Advisory Hoard. Therefore, it . is claimed that the system i'dead. We wish it were. Hut it did not depend for life upon . G. W. Curtis. We have no doubt the spirit i of the plan will be carried out by the President until he discovers that the whole thing j is a biimbmr as be will sooner or later. 1 Ilii whole character and conduct assures us j hat lie will not long permit the appointing power to remaiu in the hands of a few irre- ; sponsible nten, acting in secret, unknown to ; the public, and yet holding the fortunes of hundreds and thousands of people in th?ir hands?people who they ran strike down or build up at their pleasure. Time and his , sound judgment and inherc-nt sense of justice | will remedy this evil. Killing the Goose that the Golden Egg. Through the influence, and at the dictation of the Chicago Tribune, a violent free trade and " reform " paper, the farmers of Illinos are doing some very stupid things. At their recent State convention, held to devise some remedy against the exorbitant and-ruinous freight charges of railroad companies on agricultural products, they seem to have lost sight of that object, and to have contented themselves with an assault upon the protective policy of the country. At any rate, they almost entirely overlooked tho real cau^e of their complaint and expended their efforts mainly upon a proposition requiring a repeal of all duties on certain staple articles in the hope that they could induce the railroads to give them cheap freights, and thereby secure high prices for their wheat and corn. They embodied their notions in the following resolution : Ucrolred, That we are lr. favor of the immediate repeal of the protective duties on iron, steel, and lumber, and all materials which enter into the construction of railroad cars, steamships, sailing vessels, and agricultural implements, and that we urge Congress to take immediate action for this purpose ; that cheap railroads and cheap ships are necessary to cheap freight, and that we invite the'railroad companies to co-operate with us to that end. It; lead of complain ..f the- railroads for their extortion, they propose to form an alliance, "offensive and defensive," with these grinding monopolies, against the present protective tariff, innocently assuming timt the railroads arc unwillingly xorcea into tlicir high freights by the high prices this tariff compels them to pay for " iron, steel, lumber, anil all the materials which enter into the construction of railroad cars," ,vc. Perhaps these verdant Illinois farmers have been made to believe so by their free trade tutor of the Tribune, but w e think it would puzzle their silly heads to point out a single railroad which doc not charge its customers the very last cent for freight the v can ex- i tort. As the price of wheat, or corn, or coal, or lumber goes up, their freight charges go up accordingly. They, and not the farmers or producers, are the gainers by a ri-o in the market. When t orn is worth a dollar a bushel the farmer will gel very little tnoro | for it than when it is fifty cents. Thov regulate their taritf of charges by the price a commodity will bring in the market to which it is to be transported. Xo one with I an ordinary amount of practical common sense will believe that a railroad will transport a bushel of wheat, a ton of coal, or a thousand feet oi timber any rheaper in a car that cost; tlibni twenty-five hundred dollars than in one which costs them four thousand dollars. Hut the absence of commou sense and clo=e observation Is more strikingly exhibited j in their supposition ttiat the repeal of the taritf vu "the articles they enumerate will i cheapen their prices. The truth is '.hat ?! : Is no? an art; k- :a the list that is not much cheaper than it would Lave been if we I were dependent upon (he foreign manufacturer for liit-iii. Alt intelligent men, and ail men vrho read and judge for themselves, rather than take their opinion? frcm freetrade theorists, knew this. And the farmers of Illinois ought to know it. They ought to know, too, that if Congress should obey their wild " demand it would throw at least three hundred thousand men engaged la there various branches of industry out of emp'oymci.t. Jroci consumers of agricultural products of cur farms, tuey would o" n.-ccssily Lecome producers. Cannot ' ers understand the calamity this - . i be to themselves n- well as tc the < ferativci thus deprived rf their present lucrative- employment? V.'e .car not, and we fear, too, that a home market, built up by c.or manufacturers, where they dispose cf nine dollars' wot lb of their products to every dollar'-: w orth they dispose of in a foreign market won't convince them. H'e will theref >ro w .i-n no iiirther words on them. \> ii vi/ an may he thought eil' the extra | c-mj. nsalion act of the late Cangress, it i- j ligi.t that the r<- jmusibilitv for it should :-c J pi., . ! . sadly where it belongs.

The value ef tve predictions of "Old Probabilities'" to farmer* ' and seamen can hardly be ovcr-c<timale'l: ' and intelligent men in all the walk* of life axe learning to rely upon their con-ccUies"-, and, as :ar v necessary, to arr-.oge u.cn movements accordingly. Xow anil then,; however, a man tarns up who refuses to ae- i cept ''Old Probabilities" as his prophet. But he is pretty sure to suffer for his infidelity, j Boston, almost the last place from which ' wc should have expected such obstinacy, has recently furnished a signal example of this truth and of the danger of rejecting the ; teachings of science in the person of the ( owner of a steam yacht. Neither he nor j hi- captala maM adndt that a hwd-lahbaf j of the army, stationed in this city, cm.id j forete'i the weather in Boston as well as ; they could. .So they resolved to put to ?ea 1 in spite o; the storm signal* warning them of au approaching gale, nnd the advice of other seamen having more faith, as the daywas exceedingly pleasant, the wind fair, anil the barometer indicating no sign of storm. That night, however, they learned their folly at the price of their lives. The wind suddenly rose, a thick snow storm came on, and the next morning at day-break the yacht w as wrecked on Thixburv beach, and ill hands perished. We arc sure our readers will be interested in a description of the organization of this important institution, and its mode of operation. A correspondent of the Boston A Jeer- . titer tells the story so weil, and the subject itself so well deserves to be everywhere understood, that we shall freely use it for the benefit of out readers. As they already know the Signal Service Bureau is a military institution, and "Old Probabilities" is a distinguished army officer. Wherever there is a military post all over this broad continent, there is also an observatory, all linked to gettier by electric wires. Tiiercen employed at these stations are all soldiers under military rule. Three limes a day reports are received in this city, the headquarters of the bureau, frcra aii parts of the country, and three times a day they arc sent all over the world. Every day, in addition to the 1 probabilities" telegraphed to the public prcs3 of the country, bulletins are sent to the press in every city and village of the Union, and also to every well-known scientific man in Europe. Ever;,- day fifteen hundred charts, recording, with absolute accuracy, the slate of the weather ail over the country, are printed and disseminated abroad. Every day, from stations on the coast and shores of the lakes, seamen arc warned of apppoaclilng storms. These observations are never remitted, day or night, Sunday or week days ; and by pursuing this steady, uniform, never-ceasing course the Signal OiUcc has already thrown a flood of light upon the obscure science of meteorology, and its development has received rn immense impetus. Atmospheric movements can now he traced, and the law of storms can be understood. The Signal Office ha- not ye;,our correspondent states, attained to the dignity of a public building, and still occupies the modest private house where it begun, near the Observatory. In the lower story arc the "offices of the principal officers and library. In the upper rooms is a rare collection of aii sorts of delicate instruments: barometers, instruments for measuring the velocity of the wind, for detecting the moisture of the atmosphere ; the photographic apparatus, representations of all varieties of cloud?, telegraphs?and ail the appliances of motion science?in a word, requisite for carrying; on meteorological studies and observations with complete success. In a little room adjoining several clerks arc kept busily engaged in writing bulletins and despatches. The men connected with the Signal Service are all poorly paid, and are very inlellijeut, and able to make their way in any other vocation, llul they d > not sacrifice comfort and repose for mere u.-tin, hut bc-ru-.e they are animated by the true spirit 01 p.-.forming j faithfully whatever ta-k 1= as-'gned to them | in the army to which they belong. The rpirit j oi me general r.nii cnui omen-, n-, .11 an armies, extend" to. and takes possession of, the humhlest private in the ranks. The printing of the charts and maps is carried on in a building separated by a yard from the house; the roof is adorned with ail sorts of j quaint signals and weathercocks. Apart from it" more scientific investigation", the bureau, as we know, is abie to perform the practical service of predicting storms with proximate accuracy. When other Governments have followed our example and established similar Institutions, the climatic condition" and atmospheric movements of every part of the globs will be reported in Washington and other centers at a given moment three times a day. The bureau, then, will J be infallible ; it will liav s power to stata with , absolute accuracy what the weather w<l he for days In advance. Senator I'lm-iiback. The Hoc.

The masses of the Republican 1 arty la the Sate of Louisiana are in full sympathy with 1 Senator Pinchbeck, Governor Kellogg, and the recoguLzed State government. Wt have ! assurances to this effect from u.il'ereut parts ' of the State of Louisiana. Senator Ficchback, on his way u New Orleans, found no difficulty in se-urdig for; himself and wife decent treatment on the! railroads from Cincinnati to New Orleans, since, to our knowledge, colored ladies and getnletr.eu ere compelled to ride m cars inferior to the- freight cars on seme erf our Northern railroads. This fact marts a -tep towards the rec~r.it.on o? our c.vil rights. By a letter frcin an impartial observer tn New Orleans, v?e lcatn that peace and order are bei&? fan restored in tLat t.ty, raxes arc being paid, and the Kellogg covernment bids fair to be a success in every particular, -ave one, and that is In satisfying office cken. Glass \ arn and Glass Fabrics. Of all the material* out of which a soft, strong, pliable yam, and fine, durable, flexible cloth could be sir; Je. most readers, a* we certainly should, would sappoee yle't the most Improbable. But there seem* to be no doubt that this is one of the achievements of modern science and ingenuity. It is asserted w ~w nation a bar. a cwupWituo has been discovered jy M. Brunfaut, of Yionoa, '"Kit of which may . y ma le a curled, frirxled yarn that can bo woven into th*1 most delicate. beaatiful, r.ad j lonble fabric--. It Is claimed that the thread of vara surpasses in rlccness not only the finest cotton, but even a single cocoon thread, and that they appear at the same time almost as soft and clastic as silk lint, snd beautiful to the eye. These smooth thread- arc now woven ;n textile fabrics, whiih are now made into cushions, carpets, table-cloths, shr.wh, neckt.es, cut!-*, collars, and various other articles, and they may be tt'od for weaving the figures in brocaded s.ik , >r velvet. As n mate rial for fancy drc'sp,, tape?try for covering furniture, for laces, embroidery, etc., it is thought that this glass tis-tie will at sorc.r future time occupy a very imminent place. In softness the glass yarn almost approaches siik; and to the touch it :i like the choicest wool or cotton. It also a rcmRtkablo -trenatb, remains unchanged in light and warmth, and is not sltored by moisture or arid'. Another great advantage over other textile fabric" which it necessarily po?e--ses is that of being no.nill flsnilTiib 1 e and incombustible. The composition of this ida^s material is peculiar to the inventor. The spinning requires extraordinary dexterity and constant attention, and is =aid to be very trying to the sight. With a wheel of the diameter of five Austrian yards, one operative is able to spin three , thousand yards per minute, all of the most uniform and beautiful quality * ilaine or rorcigu "Market is the Qnesllon. The question of a ]>rraeitn\ tarijf or fret trade involves the other question of a .V>wc or foreign market. With free trade the market fcr our agricultural products would be in Europe, four thousand miles away. The protective policy of the nep'ibl'cnn party has already made a market at home for much the largest portion of these products, though still at a ruinous distance from the pro-1 ducer in many portions of the country, j But that policy is bringing the market nearer to him, and is every year increasing his profits by saving to him the cxhorbitani charges of transportation railroads now impose. Every year new factories arc- springing up, and every factory becomes a consumer and makes a market for all the farming products in its vicinity. A continuance of the present policy of protection to car cwn industry will in the end create a market1 at their very doors for aii farmers can raise? for their wheat and corn, oats and hay. Then they wiil not bo compelled to pay ffty cent; to a railroad company for taking a bushel of corn from Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois. or Indiana to Boston, while they receive only tvcentj-t'iru ccrJs for all their labor and expenditure m raising. To abandon protection for free trade would not only check aii manufacturing enterprise, but would destroy most manufacturing establishments now In existence, and would remove the : o-lrt vl-A.S- firv* r\T.f OCT?V--?ls1 *! ? ? > 1 r\rrv-ljTC?t<5 tn r~is. ! rope when they had short crop* and were compelled to buy them, r r destroy it altogether. _ |"Old t itizenn" i s. Xetr Co.iicr*. | it would seem, by the way, that the Washington /Wy Republican criticises gentlemen 1 who were not born within the limits of the j ton miles square devoted to the use of the General Government, where assembles the collected wisdom of the nation, that those gentlemen forfeit all rights pertaining to American citizenship. by coming into this District, and in somewhat the same way that slaves became free if carried by their owners into a free State do free American citizens become slaves by moving into this District, j A few days ago a number of gentlemen held j a meeting with reference to matters pertaining to the colored schools in this city ; those gentlemen were not natives of the District of Columbia, ' at, according to law, they were citizens, and most of them tax-payers in this city. For daring to meet and express an opinion : u a question of public interest, the Rqr.iHi an, evincing the Southern spirit i of hate towards newcomers, denounces them a- "demagogues, who should he severely condemned by oar colored people." We hope that the good sense of the colored people of Washington will prevent the uttering of any condemnation, on their part, of men,

no matter from where they may eorne, he- j cause they see fit to meet and discuss ques- j tions of : ablic interests. Without going j into the merits of the questions discussed at! the meetiug above referred to, we claim that the gentlemen had a perfect right to ! meet and to do any and everything that they j did. It can be of no benefit to the District j of Columbia to have lt? leading journals l.??nniti.nta 11 >t2 nnct- ri! ,or, a V,n^o.,=o I tbey take an interest In public aCab-s here i and give expression to their opinions.
