The American Press and the American Citizen. The American, resilient ia tlie United State*, is now one of forty jmilliousof countryman. Each voter (is ono ot ten million* of adult men entitled to HuilVate, to be heard in tlie witness Bland, to be admitted to the jury-box, and pouibly to place* of official trust. Hut American* look lorward to the day whon each citi zen will be one of four hundred mil lion*, and each voter one of a hun dred million*. Do w* sufficiently consider what it ia for numbers of men so vast and 10 diverse by inture and situation to decide a principle of government or to elect a ruler? Wou!"d *uc!i a man ilestation of choice be poaaible in China llow vast the interest involved in any national question fer a people so enormous in numbers! How grraft the intelligence dem :nded, how good the intention reuutred to assure a correct and bonetiaient solution Each voter mu.st decide not merely fer lumjelf, but for the whole We find everywhere in history
how clearly it was believed that monarchical rulers should 1« inform ed how ekilltul educators were sought for tha coming monaroh of a great people how museums and all •Ids to eulture were employed for his training and information. Hie king could command all service re quired for the State. All must tell him the truth. But every Ameri can voter is, indeed, a sovereign in the decision of any special political question, so far a* hi* vote count* among the million*. In either case, it ntonarch or citi zen, the result depend* upon ade quate information, good iutontion, and appropriate action. The moral accountability in cacli case remain*. Now, the period of youth passed and its culture accomplished, the great instrumentality upon which the American citizen, in these vast re sponsibilities, under these difficult conditions, muit depend fer infor mation to found in the opinions choices, and action* is the Press.— lie may travel aud observe, but he can neither be obliquitous nor re member all he lias *etti and heard Books may help him, but, after all, tho current moyemonts of his ideas and action must depend upon the journalistie press. Should it not be the ambiiion of tho American press to hold itself responsible to tell these soverign American citizens the truth Should he not have the power and right to compel an honeet service Nay, should he be required to accept any other service, since it is render ed on hi* payment—that i*, himself atii tho public, ot which he is one, are its peuuniary aupporters. But what are ihe facts No doubt there are enlisted in the servioe of the newspaper press multitude* of most capable and honest writers and publishers. None are mot e capable, none reader a better Service. But tlie rapid growth ot the press has been attended with much boasting in certain quarters. Many injurious mottvo* and practioea have crept in to its management. Had there been more general care for its wise use, less evils would have followed. We stand now at a point in our politieal progress when many facts especially suggestive on this subject are patent to the public. Out of the general boasting of the press to make or destroy men, a few leadinj papers conceived the idea that by their own power they could destroy one President and make another tor the American people. "Through one set of men on the surface they con ducted one convention in Cincinnati and though another set of men a Democratic convention in Baltimore. No douht there were behind and in this Movement certain limited ele ments of patriotism and honeaty^ but the controlling power* were direct ly the opposite and soon thereafter it seemed as if honesty and wisdom were abandoned and every other ap pliance brought into requisition, of organization, meetings, speeches, doouments, corruption, and falsifica tion. A perversion ot faots and descriptions of oharaoter were their rotiidc. great reliance. Look at the menn tain of their filth and falsehood, which they threw at Genoral Gfant. How they laid their schemes by seek ing to effect a perversion of faete through Senatorial examinations, hoping to destroy the candidates of the Republican party, and robed in its old thrown off clothes, to elect themselves. Now the whole country, even their own elaquers, no longer under pay, are confessing—nay, are declar ing—these thing* of ih« Liberal movement. Supremely selfish and corrupt, its press sought to make it appear all aelf abnegation and divine ly honeat. General Grant, the man chiefly reviled, because most in their way, is turning eut, according te the judgment of the people, a second Washington, made in a larger mould for larger armiea and a mere numer ous people. A great journalist, who hai a place near the heart and conscience of the American people, because, whatever else they thought of I im, they believed him sincere, we have seen fall down into its shadows. The lesson should not be perverted nor lost upon the American press or the American citizen.—Republic. CHANCES IN THE CODE. Title IV—County, IOWA Township I permitting »u«»tie* which have S ec.

Horace, Ber anger, Bttrnes what sort of a pedi gree had any ot these men? Neith er Shakespeare nor Milton can be said to be men ot the patrician order. They were representatives of the middlo class—ot the class which in every country ha* produced the tru est poets, the keenest and profound est thinker*, the greatest statesmen. Most of the beat English poetry has been written by men as gree as tree a pedi Burnes. What pedigree had Wordsworth, Coleridge, Soutbey, Moore, Crabbe, Keats, Tom Hood,or evcu Scott except the pedigree which he improvi*ed out of his own imagination They all belonged to the yeoman and tfio merchant clan. Byron and Shelley were the only two men who were entitled to bear arms. Genius i* not in the blood.—' It olten turn* up, like wild honey, in •trange place*. The best known Amorioan pocte have sprung from ths highest aud the humblest families, Longfellow was the son of a distinguished law yer in Portland, Maine. Bryant wac the son of a country dootor, a lover of books, culture, poetry and child ren. He thus alludes to his father in one of his poems: "For he is in bis grave, who taught ay '•Youth the art of veree." Whittier was a hard working farm er boy uutil he arrive I at the age of eighteen. Lowell came from an old: historic family, distinguished alike tor culture and honors. Poo belong ed to what was known as one of the first families. Pereival was liberally educated. Tho Cary sisters were fa miliar with the hardships of poverty in youth. Dr. Holland wa* educated for a physiciau. Were wc to con tinue the list by mentioning the mi nor poets, it would show the same diversity of social standiug and oc cupation, and as well illustrate the line of Pope: "Honerand famelrom ne eoaditien rise." "Veil, now, I vill tell schust ho* it«as," said a thick-headed Dutch witness in Canada, recently, fer th* twentieth time, after recoiving many reprimands from the Jud^a for telling what his wife told him, i«* stead of what ho saw. Ho gave the statement very concisely, but te thp consternation ot the court, in reply to the oppesing counsel'c question as to how he knew it all, oame tli# old answer, "My vifc told me." Los ing all patience, the, Judge roared out "Suppose your wife should tell you the heavens had fallen, what weuid you think?' Without tho slightest hesitation, tho witness im plied, 'Veil, I should link dcy Tf§ down!' Whittier is Quaker!
