helps to visioo, to drag down tbe social secrets of numerous worlds, and convey tbe knowl edge of our own among those fiery beds of nighted flame. Printing with her increasing velocity shall keep pace and vastly more with the swelling outpour of population, both of the land and world, and dash off from their pressure her worded sheets, till she hurls them in hours as now in months she casts them. With gifts and faculties to mold and tune the language in ways and to a force never granted by all the past, conferred upon her children. Poetry, that Spirit of Song, whohas beeB since Eden’s garden,—and drenched, as she has nev er yet been, with all the nature of her God,— will ply her wings and vibrate her plumes solely for the object of sacred virtue’s progress. The millions changed at once in purpose, where the thousands once were taken, may come perhaps from the dark and heated desert to the city of grand Religion’s orient reigning, bold blissful fertile captives now to Immanuel’s inspiration, who were ert and late the barren serfs of Abad don s hideous empire. Altar exhortation, yea, the public proclaiming of our Savior’s healing lore, shall rest safely and with vigor in the voices of myriads of the beautiful, where now men only give it clarion: and these in wondrous numbers will survey with pressure’s trial the attesting leaps of life, and deftly read it in re motely seated homes, where it surges swim ming red with the soul-fanes’ destinies. The return again of the time centennial shall find this total coutintinent unbroken whole and one, nations and tbe distinctions called races forever absorbed away upou its bosom: the same its language, identical its laws, and selisame its presiding ruler chosen to regulate in its front. The knowledge of earth’s retired secret cold and stately poles, where she balances herself up on herself as on a pivot, and where northern and southern journeying to advance farther must mount tbe skies, shall be thrown open as familiar as the purlieus of our own swelling cities. Various methods may be sought and found to ameliorate the harsh froze climates of these demesnes, and numerous measures be taken to throw fecundity into the soil-breasts of their torpid sites: so that Bloom ing in all her charms may spring throned amid those chill frosty langors, and Nature in her terrian ends may produce as around her Line. Having mastered the above luminous produc tion, the reader will be prepared for the second, entitled THE TWENTIETH CENTtJBV. By the time for the setting in of the next century, now only twenty-four years in the distance, 1 suppose that "monarchies will be either entirely gone or so far decayed as to be wholly or mostly dependent on the elective franchise. The Man of Sin, designated the Roman Catholic Church will have vanished completely and everly from the globe, driven away like a fog-bank around the isle of New foundland by tbe increasing vigor and pathos of Protestant thundering: crushed down dead slaughtered and slain by the heavy fatal blows of woman’s soft prayers, and tbe bravery of ber appeal in mild and sacred pleadings. By that time there will have been a nearly if not quite complete closure of the wounds opened by the Rebellion and its War ami nnia^i some considerable headway will have been made toward the putting out of races by the blending through intermarriage of the whites reds and yellows into one people. At aDy rate no doubt by that time a large por tion of the native Indians will have become legal citizens, aud hold in their hands the office and tbe vote. I sboul 1 not be supprized if by the termination of tbe twentieth century the various languages bad been nearly broken down and mingled qnite round the earth; nor do I reckon it at all vain to hope that the na tions may have so seen eye te eye as to repose in large measure under a common government. A few years of the now brings forth tbe amount of change wrought by centuries in the olden lime; and as the human mind goes on to gam new force in the future, alteraiions will become still more rapid, Barney Williams.—Barney Williams, whose death was announced in New York Monday, was a native of Ireland. His real name was Bernard Flaherty, and be was born in Cork in 1823, and came to this country at an early age. He was a backman in New York, and achieving a reputation as a dancer of Irish “barn-door jigs,” he went upon the stage of the old Franklin Theatre in New York, then under the management of Thomas Morgan, who was subsequently well known in that city as the keeper of the Ben Franklin House in Morton plaoe, and as the builder of the old Lyceum Theatre in Sndbury street, of which Brougham and Bland were the managers. Beginning as a jig dancer, Mr. Williams soon took up Irish comedy as a profession, and his success in that line dates from his marriage in 1850 with the widow of Charles Mestayer, whose maiden name was Maria Prav, aud who with her sis ters, Malvina (Mrs. Florence) and Louisa, had become public favorites. She made a great hit iu that city as Hassarach in the “Female Forty Thieves,” at the old Beach street Museum In 1855 Mr. and Mrs. Williams sailed for England and played a successful engagement, creating a decided turore in their original impersonation of the Irish Boy and the Yankee Gal They received the honor of a royal command at the Haymarket Theatre, London. In 1859 they returned to this country, and have since been playing star engagements all over the country. Mr. Williams, though not an actor of genius, excelled in the delineation of the lower types of Irish character, and owed much to the at tractions and the brilliancy of his wife’s sup port. He always commanded favorable terms and was able to amass a handsome fortune. He possessed a taste for art, and bis house was elegantly supplied with paintings an 1 statuary. He was a generous and warm-hearted man, and his benefactions to needy or unfortunate members of the profession will make bis name respected and beloved. Of late his health has been very poor, and he has been unable to play much for a year or two past. foreign. DENMARK. The Government Defeated in the Elec tion*.

The government printer claims that the er rors discovered by the Printing Committee in his cash book are errors in footing which had not been discovered until the committee made a close examination. They were admitted at once by the chief clerk, who had charge of that book, as mistakes, and the chief clerk proposed at once to make them good, for he believed he had the money there, and there was a mistake between his books and the money. The print er denies having even a dollar in money be longing to the United States in bank from his office under the sales of documents, speeches and Congressional Records, as charged. Pay ments were frequently made to the office by Congressmen and others, in checks and drafts, which could not be negoti ited at par at the baoks, but bad been received as an accommo dation. As to prices paid, he says: Composi tion is sixty cents per 1000 ems. Under the ar rangement of the office all the “fat matter,” so called, is put in the hands of men at SI per day, who earn sometimes S6 and SIS per day.

STATE CONVENTIONS. Massachusetts Kepubli can. Lnrgc and Harmonious Convention-At Unpledged Delegation to Cincinnati, bu with preference* lor Brialow. Boston, April 2G.—The Republican Staff Convention met at Tremont Temple this morn ing. A. M. Beard of Boston, called the meet ing to order, read the call, and was chosen ten: porary chairman. Kev. E, B. Webb of the Shawmut Congre gational ebureb, 13ostou, then offered prayer He asked that in these days when so mauy an being assailed as by the tomahawk and scalp ing knife, we might not judge hastily aud un* justly; that we might also be spared the foolish ness of putting our faith in men untried ant unproved, and that we might be blessed as t nation aud a people. A. W. Beard then congratulated the dele gates that the Republican party was agaiu ii full possession of all departments of the stat government, aud that the spirit of reform wa so strong that the best men were sought for He hoped that they would choose as represen tatives, men of national reputation who wer seeking public welfare and not their owi aims; men whose characters stood so high a to require no pledges, no instructions. The committee on permanent organ!zatioi reported for President, John E. Sanford o Taunton and a large list of Vice Presidents am Secretaries. The President then addressed the conventio at length. His speech occupied 25 minutes i delivering, and was applauded both durin delivery aud at its close. He said in substance that it was hard! necessary to repeat and dwell upon the bistori record of the Republican partv, but rather t scan the present situation, aud to take note c existing tendencies and demands. No one who has watched the current c political eveDts has failed to see a widesprea and growing dissatisfaction with the mauagf meet of national affairs, and as a consequent there have been large and significant defet tions from our ranks. We have seen th Republican party routed in its strongholds an the national House of Representatives occupie by our opponents. It is idle to disguise th fact that there have been periods within th last few years when the national election woul have brought imminent hazard of Democrati restoration. Have you any longer a doubt, b continued, as to the causes which have wrough the change in our fortunes? Surely we hav not abjured our creed. Our distinctive polio and aims were never more clearly affirmed, ou traditions and the names of kour great leadei never more reverently held. No, the protest is not against the record c the creed, but against methods of administra tiou, against dominant influences and tender cies that have debased the character and ton of the public service; against a leadership tha has wielded power and patronage for its owi ends and not for the public good; against a nai uzaDsnip narrow, intense and violent, that ha usurped the place ot a broad and enlightenei statesmanship aDd repelled|accessious of rec ognized character aud ability as au element to repugnant to be tolerated; against a cede c financial morality that has corrupted the stao dards of official honesty and turned places o public trust into opportunities of private gaii or public plunder. There is, in addition to tbe anxious lookou for relief from the long continued depres sion that rests upon the material interests o the country, a well founded conviction that w have had enough of partisan skirmish and in efficiency, of manipulation for political effect aud that it is time for a party that proposes t< stand on its positive merits, for a statesman ship that undertakes to do something for th couutrv, that is competent to deal with th< evils of a currency which blunts the publii conscience while it paralyzes the business o tbe people, to purify the civil service by select ing the fit and promoting the faithful; to rescu the public revenues from conspiracy and theft to relieve by a sound and watchful economy tb< public burdens, and thus by the promise of i wise, efficient and stable policy, and to reston confidence to the channels of trade and indust ry. There is no magiG in party or names o gratitude for past achievements that will atom for present failures. A new generation of voters is coming on the stage. However he may be nominated thi next President will not be elected by the hand dreds who are active In the preliminaries of tbi campaign, but by tbe thousands who will go t< tbe polls id November, knowing no alleg;anci and heeding no command save that of tbei own coDTiction. Measures and not meo are m longer the maxim of political wisdom. Meas ures and men is tbe watchword for to-day. The Republican party will be recreant t< commanding duty, Day, will invite the penalti of deserved defeat, if it does not place itseli with uubesitating courage in the very front o the movement tor reform and carry it forwarc with uncompromising zeal. Tbe dnty anc remedy is not to scuttle the good old ship, bui to pump out the bilge water, discharge the re creant and summon to command true anc worthy men. We can afford to make no mis take, aDd Heaven forbid that we present to the country merely a choice of evils. Expediency and patriotic duty alike demand that our can didate stand so peerless in character, ability and purpose that we fear no criticism and nc comparison. On motion of Robert Johnson of Boston, a committee on ballots was chosen. A. W. Beard read the following letter from Gov. Rice: My dear sir—I observed in some of this morning's papers my name mentioned as one of the candidates for delegates to the National Republican Convention at Cincinnati, and while grateful for the kindness of any whe would honor me with so high a trust, whenev er consulted on the subject I have uniformly declined such use of my came, and that decis ion I must still adhere to, with this added re quest, that you will withdraw my Dame in case it should be presented to the convention which is assembled today for the choice of delegates. The state abounds in men eminent in the re quisites for this responsible duty, and I doubt not tbe convention will make such a selection as will show that Massachusetts favors only such candidates as will command and deserve the support and confidence of the people of the country. H. B. Blackwell of BostoD, offered a series of resolutions in favor of civil service reform, and the nomination of candidates in favor of such principles: that the energy and courage of B. H. Bristow in unravelling the dark deeds of the whisky ring, merit our hearty approval. Mr. Bailey of Boston moved to refer the committee on resolntions without debate. Dr. Harrimau of Bostan offered an amend ment that the high character of Hon. James G. Blaine, his public services and his abilities entitles him to the highest office in the gift of the people. Blackwell proceeded to argue in favor of his resolution in spite of points of order that under the motion he could not discuss the merits of the question. Tbe chair ruled that the merits of candidates could be discussed. There was an attempt to choke him off by noi3e and applause, but Blackwell held his place. Mr. Allen of Boston, as a supporter of Mr. Bristow, regretted to have this subject opened at this time and moved that tbe whole matter lie on the table. Carried, Mr. Blackwell alone objecting. Mr. Pierce of Milton, for committee on reso lutions, reported one resolution: Resolved, That this committee leaves the dele gates of Massachusetts to the Republican National Convention, unpledged and uninstructed in respect ot individual candidates. (Applause.) But expects aud requires them each and all to work and vote for those candidates and those only whose characters and career give unquestionable assurance to the whole country that they will be faithful and zealous to maintain the equal rights of all citizens nnder the constitution, tot ring about resumption of specie payments at a date not later than that already fixed by law, and to effect thorough and radical reform of civil service to the end that the administration of public attalrs may be characterized by eHicieucv, economy and purity. Tbe resolution was carried unanimously. Mr. Stone of Waltham reported for com mittee on credentials that there were 969 pres ent, and that by reason of irregnlarities neither delegation from Ward 16 of Boston was en titled to seats. Report accepted. On motion of Mr. Osborne of East Bridge water, the convention at 2 o’clock pioccedod to ballot with tbe following result: Whole number of votes. .. .969 Necessary for a choice.485 E.

Talbot. 0 Scattering. 12 On motion of Mr. Willcomb of Ipswich Paul A. Chadbourne, who received the next to the highest number of votes, was declared the fourth delegate. Delegates were author ized to fil, vacancies, thus doing away with the necessity of balloting for alternates. Adjourned at 4 o’clock. The friends of Mr. Bristow consider that they have secured a majority of the delegates of the four elected today. It is stated that Mr. Dana and President Chadbourne are outspoken in his favor, and that Mr. Forbes, although pre viously meutioned on the unpledged ticket, may be considered a Bristow man. Mr. Hoar is unvilling to pledge himself, but is uuderstood lo favor Blaine for first choice NEW YORK DEMOCRATIC. The Day Spent in Settling Contested Seats. Utica, April 26.—The Democratic State Convention organized with J. C. Jacobs a3 President. He made a speech, in which he said the same reform was needed in Washing ton that was now in Albauy. There was some debate upon allowiug con testing delegates seats in the convention, but it was finally settled by the chair appointing a large committee to report upon the subject,land then the convention, without any other busi ness, took a recess till 4 o’clock this aiternoou. The Democratic Convention held an evening session, but the committee on contested seats not being ready to report, it adjonrned till to-morrow morniug. Midnight—The committee cn contested seats decided to admit the entire Tammany delega tion from New York city. Mr. Harrison Repents His Story. Cincinnati, April 26.—John C. S. Harrison of Indianapolis, repeats substantially to a Ga zette reporter his former story relative to Mr. Blaine, and adds that twenty-three days after his (Harrison’s) letter was sem to government director Wilson, Secretary Delano wrote to a prominent Kepublican official, saying that it was deemed best on the government’s part to change the entire board of directors of the Un ion Pacific, and that be therefore proposed to appoint some odp from Indiana, replacing Har rison. This proposition was opposed and aban- I doned, I Fortj-Fourth Congress—First Session. SENATE. Washington, April 26.

' The House weDt into committee of tbe whole 1 and took up tbe legislative appropriation bill, ■ on the page relating to War Department ap ' propriations.

To remove the burden of disease, the heaviest that poor humanity is compelled to bear, is certainly a grand ohfect, a glorious mission. Assuredly the discoverer of a remedy which accomplishes this re sult is entitled to the gratitude and respect of man kind . Such a remedy is Hostetter’s Stomach Bitters, whose great success is attributable to the lact that its restorative action upon the debilitated and dis ordered system is in accordance with the nrinciples of common sense. It invigorates the sick, and, as their strength increases, the burden of disease grows lighter. It reforms those physical irregulari ties which render weakness chronic, and thus eradi cates the evil at its very source. Liver complaint, malarious fevers, constipation, urinary troubles, uterine weakness, and many other causes of general debility and ill health, are completely removed by the combined tonic and alterative operation of the Bitters. v>awuiu id ii wuijuuu ui»ease,—go common mat snuffing, spitting, and blowing of the nose, meet us at every turn on the street. Your foot slips in these nasty discharges on the sidewalk and in the public conveyance; and its disagreeable odor, contaminat ing the breath of the afflicted, renders them offen sive to their associates. There is the highest medical authority for stating that with fully one halt, if not two thirds, of those afflicted with Consumption of the Lungs, the disease commences as Catarrh in the nose or head, the next step being to the throat and bronchial tubes—lastly to the lungs. How important then to give early and prompt attention to a Catarrh! To cure this loathsome disease correct ihe system by using Dr Pierce’s Golden Medical Discovery, which tones it up, cleanses the blood, and heals the dis eased glands by a specific influence upon them; and to assist, use Dr. Sage’s Catarrh Remedy-with Dr. Pierce’s Nasal Douche. This is the only way to reach the upper and back cavities where the dis charge comes from. No danger from this treatment and it is pleasant to use The two medicines with instrument are sold by dealers in medicines [ oc29 apr22eod& wlw SPECIAL NOTICES?"
