The Pope threatens with the Anathema all the loaders of the movement to confiscate tho.prop erty of tho Italian monasteries. About two and a half millions of dollars havo boon appropriated by tho States General of Hol land for tho war against tho Atohceneso. It is doubtful whether Cuba will have any representation in the Constituent Cortes for which delegates havo boon chosen lately in Spain. Tho Ministry havo postponed tho day named for the election iu Cuba, and havo neglected to name any other. Tho mildness and decency of tono In tho Sun day Times of yesterday indicates that the admo nition of tho Rev. Dr. Sullivan, on tho preceding Sunday, was woll-tlmod and effective. It is rarely that so groat a revolution is accomplished at so Uttlo expense. A number of Massachusetts physicians of tbo “ regular V school havo lately ventured to adopt homeopathic principles and ' remedies iu their practice. For this innovation they have boon solemnly arraigned before the Massachusetts Medical Society, of which they wore members, tried, and declared guilty of conduct unbecom ing honorable physicians. Their expulsion from tho Society is recommended. Terrible rains have followed tbo tornado in lowa, mid a flood is feared. Tho lowa, Dee Moines, and Beacon Rivera are rising and over running tho bottom lands along their courso. Along tho PoaHoiuos tho . water has risen to within ton foot of tho bridges, many of tho wharves arc flooded, and tho river is rapidly reaching a point hoyond which it cannot go with out creating wldo-sproad disaster. AIII tho boor-saloons of the North Side wore open yesterday, iu dofiauco of the law, and iu pursuance of tho programme adopted by the Bar loon-Kcopors* Union. No arrests wore made, as tho law does not,' in tho cbbo of violations of tho Sunday-closing ordinance,'permit that summary interference of tho police which it commands when the 11 o'clock ordinance is broken. Tho police wore instructed tomakonoto of every case in which tho law was transgressed, and tho offenders will bo summoned before tbo Police . Justices. Tho Vienna money market haa been greatly relieved by tho advances which tbo Austrian Government has been freely making to all who* could otter good securities. By this course, many substantial firms who were compelled to suspend, because In tho general fright oven the i. C'-: property was unsalable, havo been enabled to a umo. In Germany, tho Government has a large unount of tho French indemnity on hand, the distribution of which among the different States will probably alleviate all monetary atrin- , goncy, • " • Mr. J. Perry Johnson is a candidate for Oir-. cult Judge In tho Contralto District iu’lhis State, imdM. G. Bovill, the editor of tho Salem Aduo cate, has charged in his paper that Mr. Johnson offered him 650 for his support and that of his paper. Mr. Johnson has published a reply, In .which ho denies the charge, and prints a “con fidential” letter from Bovill to Johnson, iu which ho (Bovill) asks Johnson to wad him SIOO “to meet tho expenses of the canvass.” In re ply, Mr. Bovill reiterates his charge, but has nothing to say about tho letter in which ho asked Mr. Johnson for 6100 “to moot Ifee expenses of tho canvass.” It looks very much as though the Salem editor had tho worst of the light. Tho Adams (Mass.) Transcript, a Republican newspaper, makes a charge against one E. R, Tinker, tho Collector of Internal Revenue in that district,* which has tho appearance of truth. Tinker was a delegate to the ''Uiladoiphia Con vention ond on active supporter of Henry Wilson for tho nomination of Vico-PießiUont. The con test between Wilson and Cofux was very oloao. •“ Tinker,” says tho Transcript, “at last discov ered a ohanco to buy up ono of the Southern del egations elected and pledged to Colfux. This delighted him immensely. Ho opened negotia tions at onco with the loader of tho delegation, ascertained his price for himself and tho rest, and then wont round and collected tho money, and yithhisown hands paid over the cash to this ‘fatder. 110 then pushed hlu way through .tho Convention to tho roar of the Presi dent’s desk and made an arrangement with him to recognize this loader when ho should rise to declare tho vote of his Stale. When the time came, (his purchased loader rose, and cast tho veto of that State for Wilson, and this decided the election, an! Colfax was defeated.*' This is a diroot charge, nado in Mr. Tinker's district, in Jllr. Wilson's Btalt, and by a journal of good' etaudlug in tho Jiopubllcaa party.

Marshal MaoMabon, who succeeds Thiers as President of Franco, is of Irish descent, and bo longs to a family who gave all they bad to tbo causo ot ibo Stuarts. When ibis causo was hopelessly lost, they refused to give tholr allegi ance to tho Government of King Williom, and carried tboir proud pamo oud family tradi tions to Franco, wboro tholr blood soon was merged with that of tbonobllity. President MaoMabon la but a few years younger than ox-Prosldont Thiers. Ho was bom in 1808. Bis career boa boon a military ono from tbo begin ning till Saturday, when bo assumed political duties for tbe first time. Ho began service in 1830, in Algiers. Ho woo In tho Crimea, and, when Sebastopol was stormed, ho was ohoson as tho fittest officer to attempt tbo works of tbo Malakoff. How brilliantly bo succoodad ovory ono knows. His part in tbo victory of Magenta won him tho iitlo of Duko of Magenta from Louis Napoleon. Xu t&o iil-fatod war with Prussia his star was less propitious, and bo was defeated at Woortb and Beaumont. Ho was chief in command at Sodan,. but waa bo for tunate as to roceivo a eovoro wound early in tbo dayj which saved him tho mortification of sur rendering. This humiliation devolved upon bis successor, Goo. Whnpffon, who signed tho articles of capitulation. Ho waa successful in tho de fense of Paris against tho Commune, and was of groat assistance to President Thiers in tho or ganization of tho army. Tho nearest approach to civil ofHoo fo bo found in ibo record of Presi dent MaeMohon’s life is bis refusal to acoopt a nomination from tbo Parisian Proas Union to represent Paris in tbo National Assembly. In his communication to tho President of tho National Assembly accepting tho Presidency, ho promises to-discharge its duties with tho help of God and tho army. MB. A. M. CRAIG’B RECORD. Tho opponents of Judge Lawrence boastfully talk and write upon tho brilliant record mode by Mr. A. M. Craig as a member of tbo Constitu tional Convention of 1870. Wo propose to give that record, word for word, during the. five months' session. Themis not, perhaps, another man in Illinois who has over hold public place who boa made such a barren and empty record, or who would ask any man to look at n record which, from its poverty-stricken character, shows an uttor want of ability, of ordinary com prehension of business, of common intelligence, and respectable industry. Tho fact is, Mr. Craig was elected to tho Convention by a sort of potty intrigue. Knox County had boon “torn” on tho question of tho removal of tho county seat from Knoxville to Galesburg. Tbo coun ty was overwhelmingly Republican. Tho Republican candidate was suspected of favoring Galesburg. Craig, who was a Democrat, offered to protect Knoxville on the county-seat question, and therefore received, in addition to the Demo cratic voto, tho Republican voto that was favor able to Knoxyiiio, and was elected. Reaching the Convention by a trick of this petty character, ho sat In that body, day after day and month after month, as stolid and as useless os a wooden man. Of tho 'eighty-two members of that body, ho ranked os tho most inconsequential, not in any ono particular, but in all things. On com mittees ho was utterly useless. Ho could not oven arguo tho county-seat ques tion. Ho debated nothing, and his entire action on the special question for which he was elected was confined to moving a verbal amendment, which amendment, whoa assailed by others, ho was not able to defend, hutheggod John Scholfiold to say something for it. In a body of men of average intellect and experience, ho seemed from first to last to ho wholly out of his sphere,—a man who had dropped into some place for which he was totally unfitted. To show that wo havo not mistaken his record, wo give from tho volumes of Convention proceedings everything ho said and did iu that body. Horo is tho whole story • 18G9—Doc. 18. Alfred M, Craig attended tho Convention, and was sworn. Doc. 17.

To displace Chief Justice Lawrence in ordor to make room for snob a u dummy ” aa Craig, would bo an act fit to mako ovory Intelligent man in Illinois deny his citizenship. THE CRISIS IN FRANCE. Tho political crisis which has throatonod Franco for several months has finally boon pro* oipltated in a sudden and unexpected manner. M. Thiers has yielded to tho trifling majority against hhn In tho Assembly, he and his Ministry have resigned, and Marshal MacMahon has boon elected President of tho Republic. Tim imme diate issue was en tho definitive establishment of tho Republic, a measure brought forward by the Government, and sustained by tho Liberals. Aiowdaya ago, thoConsorvativos opposed them selves to this measure by an interpellation, call ing for the organization of a Conservative mi nority and a declaration of a Conservative policy on tho part of tho Government. The move ments in tho Assembly for two weeks past have boon tending to tho ronsolldatiou of tho factions opposed to M. Triors for a voto on this issue. Tho Right, or' Conservative side of the As sembly, Ims consisted of Bonapartists, Orloauists, and Legitimists; tho Loft, or . Liberal, has consisted of Moderate Republicans and Ilaaicals. Tho factions of each side have coalesced,—tho ono into a general Monarchical party, tho other into a general Republican party, —sinking their distinctive features in tho broad issue whether or not tho Republic shall bo definitely proclaimed as the permanent Govern ment of Franco. A few days ago, it was an nounced that there had boon a coalition of tho Monarchists with tho purpose of overthrowing Thiers, and presenting tho Dno d'Aumalo as their candidate for President. Since that time there has boon several tost votes with various results. In tho recent election of thu'Prooidont of tho Assembly, M. Buffet was put forward as tho candidate of tho Monarchists, and was elected over M. Martel, tho Republican candidate. Shortly after, however, tho Liberals elected M. Martel as tho First "Vice-President of the Assembly. With thoso varying results, and a close division of the two consolidated parties, It was impossible to fore tell the voto on tho groat question. This was taken on Saturday, with a decided and growing victory for tho Monarchical party. Tho voto against making tho definitive establishment of thoßopublio thoordorof tho day stood SCO toS44. Then Thiers resigned, and tho voto on tho ac ceptance of his resignation was BCB for and 839 against. Tho voto which elected Marshal MacMahon President of tho Republic was 890. Though tho real issue seems to havo boon that of Monarchy against tho Republic, it could not bo so declared openly, for tbo Monarchists of tho Assembly are divided among themselves, Tho policy on which they united was tho professed fear of Radicalism, under which category they included all who favor tbq per manent establishment of tbo Republic. M. Tliiora was elected as tho candidate of tho Conservatives at a time when this sldo of tho Assembly had not identified itself so com pletely with tho Monarchical movement. M. Thiers himself had always been a Monarchist, hut, having boon elected to sustain and admin ister a Republican form of government, ho per formed that duty conscientiously and intelli gently. Ho has been conservative in all hla movements, but has refused to participate in tho apprehensions of Radicalism which tho Oon eorvativoa generally have entertained. Ho re fused, some months ago, at the demand of t*ho Conservatives, to pat a stop to Gambotta's Re publican speeches in tho provinces, or to pro claim an official disapproval of tho sentiments which Gambotta advanced. From this time on, tho Conservatives have insisted upon regarding Thiers as a Radical, and have made their fight against him. All well-defined parties in Franco are extremists, and M. Thiers* honest effort to take a middle ground has mot with no intolllgont appreciation.' His eminent services in overcoming tho Commune, reorgan izing tho army, holding tho people together, saving tho Assembly from dangers that threat ened on both sides, and shaping events in tho direction of a permanent constitutional Repub lic, havo counted for nothing. IBs course was sustained by tho Radicals simply because It was morb favorable to their ideas than to tho opposite extreme, and tho so-oallod Conservatives havo succeeded in overthrowing about tho only mau in all Franco who is truly entitled to tho of Conservative. Tho withdrawal of M. Thiers must ho re garded as a serious blow to tho Republic, and tho election of Marshal MacMahon as a very decided stop in tho direction of some kind of monarchi cal restoration. MaoMahon has always boon a Monarchist. Ho is essentially an army man. Ho has boon tho pet and tho prldo of tho French army for twenty years, and every Government has recognized it. Tho reverses and defeats which ho met in the Prussian war, iu common with all French officers, did not affect him as it did the others. Ho was tho man to whom President Thiers intrusted tho work of reorganizing tho army, and thoro is littlo doubt that ho has set it on its foot again. Ho haa no sympathy with Republicanism by nature, education, habit, or association. If Napoleon woro alivo, and tboro woro a strong Bonapartlst party, it is probable that MaoMabon would attach blmsolf to tho Im perialists. As Napoleon la dead, and his dynasty haa no organized strength in Franco at this time, It is probable that MaoMabon will go with tho strongest party,—whether lb bo for tbo Count do Chambord (Honri V-) or ono of iho Orleans Princes. Ho has boon aiootod os tbo representative of tbo Monarchists, hia personal attachments arc with them, and, ns tho hood ot tho Government and tho . chief of tbo army, bo will play an important part in iho drama, or porbops tragedy, that shall de cide what tbo next permanent Government of Franco shall bo. It may bo that tbo present anomalous Govern ment of Franco will bold for a tlmo without trouble of any kind. XUo army, under Mao- Mabon’s leadership, will bo able to enforce order throughout tbo country. But iho Monarchical Intrigues may now bo oxpootod to take a moco definite shape than before, and tbo division of tbo country bolwoon Monarchists and Republi cans, as indicated by iho rocout vote in tho Assembly, is so close that tbo Liberals will hardly yield without a dosporato struggle. Tho situation, therefore, is full of porll. Thoro is no prospect of appealing to tbo sentiment of iho people. Tho Liberals havo boon anxious to do this, but havo tu ado no head way at it. But, if tbo appeal woro mado, the. real sentiment of tbo pooplo could [scarcely bo brought out under iho pressure of the army and tho clergy. Another danger which threatens tho country Is tho eagerness to mako|war on Prussia, —a sentiment with which MaoMohon, as an army mau, will bo much more likely to sympa thize than Thiers. Another war with Germany would bo tbo moat disastrous of all tho throat ouod perils; but, ovou if this bo averted, tbo present revolution In tbo Government and tbo retirement of M. Thiers foreshadow now sorrows and sufferings for a pooplo which is to day tho Nioho among nations. THROUGH FREIGHTS AND THE BAILHOA LAW. Tho now law of this State prohibits the mil roatlß from charging “for &uy distance, within tlio State, the eamo or a groator amount of toll or compensation than is at tho eamo tlmo charged, collected, or received for tho trans portation, in tho eamo direction, for any passen ger, or like quantity of freight of tho same class, ovor a groator distance of the same railroad Tho question has orison whether this can bo en forced against through freights in cases whero tho freight is brought in part ovor a railroad lying within another State. A case in point is tho compotitiou between Milwaukee and Chicago for handling tho wheat of Southom Minne sota. If tho law can ho literally enforced, then Chicago can no longer hope to handle tho Minnesota grain. Wo will suppose that tho Milwaukee & St. Paul Railroad carries grain from Winona to Milwaukoo for 22 cents. It Is then necessary to transport the groin from Winona to Chicago for 20 cents, as wheat is worth 2 cents more per bushel in Milwaukoo. To accomplish this, tho Northwestern Railroad has boon In tho habit of carrying grain on barges from Winona down tho Mississippi River to Clinton or Pulton, there transferring it to cars ond bringing it di rect to Chicago. If tho rate from Clinton or Pulton to Chicago is uo cants, ana tho North western Railroad brings grain from Winona to Chicago; which is a greater distance, but 1 n part ontsido of tho State, for tho eamo amount, can ‘ tho local shipper at Fulton, Illinois, demand that his freight to Chicago shall bo taken at a loss or pro rala rate according to tbo through tariff made from Winona ? If ho can enforce such a demand, then tho Northwestern Railroad must abandon Us Minnesota groin trade, which will then go in bulk to Milwaukoo. This would be discrimina tion with a vengeance, rendered necessary by tho very law which was Intended to abolish dis crimination. Wo are of opinion that tbo demand of tho Pulton shipper, that his freight should bo taken at loss than 20 cents, because the same freight is carried for that amount from Winona, which is a greater distance lying within another Btalo, cannot bo enforced. Tho Northwestern Railroad would not mako its contract in Illinois to carry from Winona to Chicago, but In another State. It may assume, therefore, that the 20 cents which it charges Is charged for tho distance be tween Pulton and Chicago, and that it transports tho same freight from Winona to Fulton, a strip of territory under tho Jurisdiction of other States, for nothing, in order to secure tho busi ness. It would devolve upon the local shipper at Fulton to prove that this was not tho fact; that the railroad was charging or paying some thing for tho transportation from Winona to Pulton, and, therefore, not receiving tho full rate from Pulton to Chicago. This would bo an exceed ingly difficult thing to do. The Court would not require tho Northwestern Railroad Company to produce a contract made in another State to cover transportation outside of tho State of Illi nois. Tho inference or presumption of tho local shipper at Clinton, that ho was paying a larger rate to Chicago, thou was paid for tho same distance In Illinois by tho Winona shipper, would count for nothing without direct proof of tho fact. Tho principle of law which determines this ease is, that tho State of Illinois can exercise control over tho Northwestern Railroad Com pany only for that portion of the road which lieu within tho boundaries of Illinois. Outside of this State tho Northwestern Railroad, or any railroad, can carry freight at a 1 loss or for nothing if it pleases, without con flicting with tho laws of Illinois. Bach Btuie exercises jurisdiction over that part of a railroad lino lying within Us boundaries, and over no other part. Though the entire rail road Uno maybe tho property of a single cor poration, still, if it runs through various States, it originally scoured the right of way from each of the States traversed, and each Stato retains its ordinary jurisdiction over that part of tho road lying within its boundaries. Tills principle of law was once laid down by Judge Story in the case of tho Dlaokstouo Canal Company, owning a canal partly in Massaohueotts and partly in Rhode Island. A. controversy arose re quiring a decision os to State jurisdiction, aud >yas carried into tho United States Court. Judge Story thou decided that the canal, although owned by one company, consisted of two separate and independent corporations deriving their existence from two separate sources of power, to-wit i the States of Massachusetts aud Rhode Island, and that neither State could extend its jurisdiction over an inch of the canal In the other State. Tho same principle of law applies to rail jaada, and inhibits tho Stato of Illinois from In* qulrlng what anyrallrood company does with that portion of Us rood located in lowa. Wiscon sin, Minnesota, or any other SkoU. It is fortunate that this rule «|>|>iloh, for other wise there are certain grain-producing sections which would bo shut out from market altogether. In the case of Southern Minnesota, that grain section would still have an outlet at Milwaukee, If the Illinois law could shut it off from the Chi cago market, and the only damago which tho low would work would ho that ' done to tho interests of Illinois. Hut in certain sections of lowa, traversed by tho Burlington & Quincy, Chicago <k North western, and tho Book Island A Faalllo, the offset of enforcing the Illinois law over those portions of tho roads lyiug lu other States would bo to de prive tho farmers of all market for their grain. A tariff that should bo mode up on a scalo of distance, increasing tho prices in oven tho small est proportion, would render tho rates of trans portation so high from tho remoter shipping points of tho Wost and the Northwest that tho farmere’ grain would bo oaten up In freight long before it could roach a market. If tho Illi nois law should bo Utorally enforced along tho entlco length of tho railroad linos which it was intended to control, tho farmers of lowa, Min nesota, and Missouri might as well make up their minds to continue to burn their corn as fuel, for thoy would bo out of pookot in at tempting to fiend it to market. It is a matter of choice with the railroads, under tho existing state of things, whether thoy shall continue their present tariffs outside of tho Stato of Illi nois, or apply tho principle of tariff prescribed by tho Illinois law to tho whole length of their lines. They will probably do tho former In their own intoroat, aud in tho interest of tho fanners. But U thoy should docido to follow tho rulo pro scribed by tho railroad savans of tho Illinois Legislature, it would bo tho most practical and direct process of demonstrating to tho people tho absurdity of tho doctrine that discrimination is unjust and illegal under all circumstances, and that a railroad must always charge a larger rato for tho greater distance of transportation. To apply this principle to any tariff which tho Legislature or tho Bailroad Commissioners would hold to bo reasonable, would bo to strangle tho production of grain in many of tho moat fertile districts of tho Northwest, THE IOWA TORNADO. Tho account of tho fearful tornado which swept through two counties In lowa, on Thurs day last, has already boon given in our col umns in vory graphic detail, by onr correspond ents on tbo spot. Incredible as somo of those details may appear, they arc nevertheless (rue. No words con exaggerate the destructive power of onoof those cyclones, when It gathers full force ond sots out upon Its errand of disaster ond death. In a love! country nothing con with stand their shock, Tho firmly-rooted mountains offer the only barrier to their progress, and oven upon a mountain-side they will destroy trees, shrubs, and vegetation, ond hurl rocks about like ploythiugs, boforo they aro finally dissi pated. Tho recent tornado, in its various fea tures, recalls that which destroyed tho towns of Comanche and Now Albany, in tbo same State, some years ago, with tho exception that tho Camancho tornado traveled much faster than tho Washington one, and passed ovor a much wider and longer ex tent of country, not having expended its force entirely until ic reached some point in Eastern Wisconsin. In their methods of destruc tion, however, tho two woro precisely similar. In each of thoao disasters the same peculiarity of total destruction was visible. It is not remark able that largo and prominent objects like houses, churches, barns, or oven trees, should bo rent to pieces when struck by this terrible whirling wind, but its capabilities for destroying, tearing asunder, splitting, and literally picking to pieces tbo smallest and most minute objects oven, almost stagger belief. Tho eccentricities and freaks of thoso tornadoes in causing de struction have no parallel in any other of tbo natural forces. Tbo Camancho tornado, liko that at Washington, plucked tbo feathers from fowls, literally flayed cattle, disemboweled sheep, cleaned corn-cobs of every kernel, tore grass up by tho roots, wrenched the leaves out of books, tore tho loaves off from shrubs, and denuded trees which were not tom up of their bark. Thoro was, in foot, nothing so small or insignificant as to escape their visitation. They woro thoroughly impartial in the bestowal of their favors, although tho results of their rough handling of things wore not always the same. For Instance, in tho Camancho tornado, ono piano was whirled through tho air for at least an eighth of a mile, and when it eamo down alighted liko a oat, foot first, into the. soft mud on tho river bank, nouo tho worse for Its aerial journey, except that after such a shaking up it needed tuning. All tho rest of tho pianos In Camancho, howovor, were tom into splinters. In the Washington tornado, some cattlo which took tbo samo journey as tho rest escaped un harmed, while others had their hides taken off, horns and all, or were driven head first into tho ground. It is evident from tho operations of those tor nadoes that science can suggest no precautions against them. Their origin is as mysterious as their result iodlsastrous. They give no warning of their coming by any unusual agitation of nature. They leave no time for the escape of anything within their course. It has thus far almost al ways happened that their visitations bavo boon attended by a hot, sultry atmosphere, a still, do&d air, and a poouliaryollowish light; hat those ora conditions which often occur in tho warm season, and may happen many times in a summer without causing any natural phenome non or disturbance of any sorb whatever. Science may predict tho coming rain and snow and im? mediate changes In temperature. It may oven indicate with certainty tho approach of heavy gales, but it can no more indicate with certainty the visitation of a cyolouo than it can tho erup tion of a. volcano or tho outbreak of an earth quake. Thirty or forty years ago, a little whirl of dust in a village street in Western Massachu setts, such as may ho seen almost any summer day, developed rapidly into a tornado, which swept for miles with torrliio fury, until it was broken by tho Berkshire hills, with which it came In contact. Usually, however, there is not even this much notice givou. Tho hugo monster whirls through tho air with tho speed of a rlilo-hall, and swoops down upon a village bo suddenly that hub very few pooplo in Its course havo time to escape to their cellars or other underground excavations, which are tho only places of safety. In an on tiroly open country, where tho view is unob structed, tho approach of tho tornado may ho soon for Boroo distance, if tho aky happens to be olo&r, hut even then its speed is so rapid that It strikes a village almost as noon as it is discover ed. It affords no data, however, for eeleutlfle research; It loaves no traces bohind oioopt those of destruction, It U ono of those vast, appall ing, and gigantic forces of nature whose mya lory solonoo has noTor boon abio'io plorco. Commodore Shufoldt, of tbo Amorican Navy, has recently Bout a report to Secretory Robeson on tho condition of tho Ltborlan Republic. Ho reports tho Liberians oo essentially Amorican in their feelings, and behoves that tho idea of Christian civilization has taken 100 firm a foot hold upon African territory over to bo expelled. Tho greatest trouble which this Africo-Amoricao Republic has experienced has oomo from tho English. Boundary complications have grown out of tho establishment of certain English trad ing-posts upon territory claimed by Liberia, and tho English Government boo mado demands up on the Republic's Treasury which , has weakened It somewhat. This has also had tho effect of loading tho natives to bollovo that they would bo better off under English protection than living under a Government too weak to assort Us rights. There is an impression that tho Amer ican Government should dotoil ships-of war for eorvlco on tho Liberian coast to sustain tho idea of Amorican protection. Com modore Bhufoldt expresses the opinion that tho establishment of steam communication between Liberia and America would do more to.strongtbon the now Republic than anything else. If this is to bo construed as a hint for a now steamship subsidy, It comes tdp late. Tho staples of Li beria ore coffee and sugar ; tho soil is sold tq bo rich and fertile; there are five largo sugar mills in operation on tho Bfc. Paul's Elver; tho pooplo nro giving soxno attention to agriculture with satisfactory results ; and thoro is considerable exportation of coffee and sugar. A fair propor tion of tbo trade comes to America, but it will have to await Us natural development so far as American subsidies are concerned. Education, unfortunately, Is reported as in a languishing condition, owing to tho look of means. Hero is probably a good Held for active and practical missionary work. NOTES AND OPINION. Got. Carpenter, of lowa, will bo 5 candidate for re-election, this year; and Gov. Austin, of Minnesota, is sotting the nine for bis own ad* Tancomout to ibo United States Senate. ‘ Got. Carpenter, by bis ovm testimony, know of a de falcation in tbo lowa State Treasury, and per mitted tbo Treasurer to replace it out of an ab straction from trust-funds, unsecured, in bis bands. Ho bas afneo used the power of bis high office, and bis Influence In tbo dominant party, to shield that guilty official from all punishment by Jaw. Gov, Austin, also, knew bow tbo money of tbo Minnesota State Treasury was, for years, being used and lost in private speculation, and bo, also, bas used his power and influence to shield tbo guilty parties. Those are not deduc tions of moro theory, nor aro they partisan slan ders. They aro the facts, openly known, and.to some extent boasted of. Will tho people of lowa and Minnesota, in tbolr elections this year, bo blind to such facts ? —Tho Davenport Gazette , an advocate of Gov. Carpenter's re-election, begins and ends an edi torial thus; Tho lenders of tbo motley crowd vho oppose tho Republican party do not appear to bo agreed os to tbo method of conducting tbo coming campaign. . ... AU tbla only proves how utterly demoralized tho Op position la; that it la destitute of any common bond of unity: and that ovory dodgo will bo played that will afford a promise of securing an office. Repub licans, therefore, have only to stand firm, allowing “ reform” elements to codie to tbo front, ana the good old party will triumph aa in tho post, under circum stances affording assurance of honest and faithful ad ministration of public affairs. ; The reform element tlmt permits Gov. Par pouter's ro-olootion must, indeed, bespeak high assurauoo of honest and faithful administration. —Gov. Oarpontor baa donned tbo regalia of' tho Farmers* Movement, and the Dubuque Times (Administration) says: Uo could not bo engaged In moro acceptable work than in endeavoring to master tbo needs of the people of tbo State, and tbo beat moans of supplying them. He could not better prove himself fit to bo Governor than, now when all minds are being turned to the elucidation of Industrial aud material problems, load ing in their discussion. Tbo people who demand this kind of knowledge and this kind of effort from their public men are not Ilkcfy to look upon Gov. Carpenter's earnestness in the matter as an evidence of debase ment. —Tho announcement that Congressman Alex ander Mitchell, of Wisconsin, and John Hill and George A. Halsey, of New Jersey, have remitted to the Treasury, swells tho list of reputed peni tents to forty-eight, after counting out Bholln horgor, Hamlin, Van Trump, and other frauds. Now, forty-eight times $4,000 (a fair average) is $102,000. Has Mr. Spinner got so much ? —lt is noticeable that the Republican press in terprets tho Ohio Republican platform to mean' very much more than it says. Thus, the Buffalo Commei'oial Advertiser says of It: At tho hurt session of Congress those guilty of palpa ble corruption were not punished as they deserved to be. Hero was a Bin of omission which tho Ohio Repub licans do not overlook. There is also a sin of commis sion charged to the hut session which does not escapo condemnation. Tho Ohio Republicans - yesterday de nounced what is now generally called the “ salary grab.*' Tho members of Congress who unscrupu lously voted themselves salary to which they were not entitled received tho censure which is so justly their duo. By action such as that taken by tho Ohio Repub licans, the Democracy ore effectually foiled In their effort to saddle tho odium of tho Credit llobtlicr and ’*salary-grab" on tho dominant party. Tho Republi cans of tho country boldly meet such issues, aim clear themselves 'of any responsibility for errors or sins committed by some of their representatives in Con gress. —Tho Wheeling (W.Va.) Intelligencer goes oven further than this, saying ; Tho Ohio Republican platform Is sound and square on the Credit Moblllcr and salary-grab. Not only arc these unqualifiedly denounced, and the taking of the back pay condemned equally with tho voting for it, but there is a swooping condemnation of all Increase of salaries at a time when tho resources of the country are taxed to their utmost to moot the burdens imposed by (bo pension list and tho national debt; and the ro nes! ot tho whole measure is demanded. This must ho hold to modify the resolution Indorsing (ho President, because this obnoxious measure was not only signed by him, but there la too much reason to believe that It mot hfs approbation, and that (ho whole scheme bos its origin-in the anxiety of certain politicians to commend themselves to his favor. .’—The resolution, of: tho Ohio Republicans mildly rebuked tho Increase of salaries as un wise, ami called for its repeal; but the Provi dence (R. 1.) Journal Interprets this, plank to road: The resolution upon (Uo grab business demanded, in tbo name of Ute party, a prompt repeal of tbo act and tbo restoration of tbo money to the Treasury. That is -the key-uoto, and all party coavoatloan should follow It—repeal of tbo act ami restoration of tbo money. —Senator Qoorgo G. Wright, of lowa, must bo olaesod with. Hamlin, Shollabargor, etaalt. t who have protended to return. tholr ahoros into tbo Treasury and haven’t done it. Tho Dealloinoa ■Republican (Administration) exposes Wright, and tho Davenport Democrat says ot him: ■ Harlan need to bo a wonderful specimen of tbo Amhmdsb Sleek class of politician's; and tu Senator George Q.
