Mr. Barnum Again. The Argus comes to the defence of the action of the Connecticnt Democrats in nom inating Mr. Barnum, but it entirely misap prehends the ground of complaint. The ob jection to Mr. Barnum is, not that he has money, but that he has nothing else. He is not a man of distinguished ability, he Is not a man of meritorious public service, be is not a man of broad aud enlightened views. He is merely a man who has become very wealthy and who uses his wealth to buv of fice. He would never have been heard of in politics had he not been a millionaire. The Connecticut Democracy would never have sent him to Congress had he not contributed thousands of dollars to their corruption fund* It is notorious that in the recent election he spent money lavishly in all the close towns, that voters were bribed and a heavy Demo cratic majority thus obtained in the legisla ture. Mr. Barnum represents no principle which the Democratic party professes to hold. He is an out-spoken protectionist, and the Argus and other Democratic journals assure ns that free-trade is a cardinal Democratic doctrine. He is a corruptionist, and the Argus and other Democratic journals assure us that purification of politics and reform of official abuses ate among the objects lor which the Democracy is striving. He is a notorious absentee from his seat in the House, and the Argus and other Democratic journals assure us that strict attention to the discharge of official duty is a Democratic requirement. He is illiterate and inexperienced in public affairs, and the Argus and other Democratic journals assure us that the Democratic party insists upon putting the government into the hands of statesmen of culture and long expe rience. And this man, so inattentive to public business that he does not make his ap pearance in his seat once a month, so illiter ate that be cannot write a letter without blunders in grammar and orthography of which a school boy would be ashamed, is pre ferred by the Democrats of Connecticut to men like Ingersoll and Hubbard, men un exceptionable on the score of partisanship, men of culture and wealth. It is not pre tenued that Mr Barnum is in brains the equal of these men; perhaps not in purse, but he is taken up because he is willing to give money to bribe voters and they are not* because he is willing to abet corruption and they are not, because he will contribute thousands of dollars to a campaign fund, and they will not. It is not in point to adduce the elections of Cameron and Jones and Spencer and Clay Inn inn --- -- H4V 444VI1 VI mental power, one of whom has served in the councils of the nation for years, and they were chosen to the Senate because they were by the divine right of brains, leaders of men, and not merely because they were rich. For the carpet bag Senators the Democracy is re sponsible. All the eminent men in the South were guilty of treason, and Senators had to be made of such poor timber as there was left. But whatever has happened in the South and West, never in New England, un til this shameful act of the Connecticut Dem ocrats, was a man chosen to Congress merely because he was rich and was willing to spend thousands of dollars to carry his District or his State. A party which deliberately passes by its best men and takes up a candidate sim ply because he will “bleed freely” is not a party to which tho peplc can safely look for the elevation of the public service. The charge that Secretary Bristow was black-balled by certain members of the Un ion League Club for political reasons has completely fallen through. The opposition was made by men who do not like their Re publicanism straight but take a little sugar in their’n. Mr. A. G. Kiddle’s answer to Mr. Blaine’s explanation of the Kansas Pacific bond story throws very little additional light upon the matter and is not a very successful vindication of the memory of his son-in-law, the late J. W. Knowlton, who was the re puted author of the charge that Mr. Biaine received twenty five construction bonds of tho Kansas Pacific. According to Mr. Rid dle, Knowlton never denied the story as he repeated it, but simply denied an incorrect version of it which appeared in the news papers. As told by Knowlton the story was that while a clerk in J. B. Stewart’s office he saw Blaine come in and retire to a private room with Stewart, and that after a lengthy conference Stewart came ouj with twenty five construction bonds of the Kansas Pacific in his hand and asked Knowlton to witness to their transfer. This he did, and then Stewart took them back to the room where Mr. Blaine was. The version as it appeared in the newspapers was that a clerk in Stew art’s office had seen twenty-five bonds of fhe Kansas Pacific railroad delivered to Mr. Blaine. This version, Mr. Riddle says, Knowlton denied, but never the origiual story. On the other hand it will be recol lected that Mr. Gibson, the correspondent of the New York Sun, in his statement incor porated in Mr. Blaine’s explanation, alleged that Knowlton denied that he knew any facts compromising Mr. Blaine in the least, even going so far as to assert that he never saw Mr. Blaine in Stewart’s office. A startling commentary on the truth of the assertion that the South is reconciled to Jts defeat and longs for the restoration of friendly feeling is furnished by the oration made at Charlotte, North Carolina, on the Southern Memorial Day of this year by S. Taylor Martin, who styles himself a minister of the gospel. Among other things Martin said: “Slavery was a divine institution, and wo must have that institution or the South will ever be bankrupt. They speak of our cause as the ‘lost cause’. If so should it be lost forever? No! A new eeneration has sprung up, and at a not far distant day there will he ‘starsand bars’ floating over onr Sunny South. lu the next political campaign we must, even if in the minority, support a Southern man who will build up our interests and hurl the Yankee pickpockets from our midst. \Ve are to-day united to the puritanical host by an artificiul tie; but we are a distinct people, and God and the right will enable us to show the world the truth, and the equity of our claims. Our states men now in CoDgress are the cream of that body, and are the only element that reflects credit on the United States. Is it not better to bang on to the ‘lost cause’ than to stay in a government of corruption?” Candidates for the place of Fitzhngh, the “man blger than old Grant,” are multi plying. Already ten thousand hungry Dcm ocats are in Washington, clamoring tor the place, and fifty thousand more are on the way. And now the report comes that anoth er prominent officer of the House is to be ar raigned within a few days for a matter of considerable gravity. Political News. Buckingham and Ferry—Eaton and Bar num. “By their fruits ye shall know them.” The Louisville Courier-Journal has a bad proof-reader for a leading Democratic orgaD. It still spells “nigger.” Dissatisfied with Judge Davis, the infla tionists are now, it is said, thinking of Gen eral Butler as a candidate. He is certainly the man for their money. The San Francisco Chronicle insists that with the Republicans and the Independents reunited California ought no longer to be looked upon as a doubtful State. The Chicago Times puts it thus: “Horatio Seymour has declined the Presidency twice. The Presidency has declined Horatio Sey mour only once, which leaves Horatio one ahead.” There are signs that’the Washburne move ment is to be set on its feet again. A corre spondent of the Chicago Tribune has dscov ered two Washburne men on the Ohio dele gation. The Providence Journal says: “Eaton is able and vicious, Barnum is rich and indiffer ent; and this is the sort of purification of the public service which the Democrats in dulge in where they have the power.” If a man wants to advertise himself why doesn’t he go to a newspaper and buy a square like a little man, instead of going and getting up a “reform movement” for the sake of having his name printed in capitals at the bottom of the call. It's too thin. Ex-Senator Brownlow is not a Morton man after all, the Cincinnati Commercial is in formed, but prefers Bristow, with Hayes for second choiee. The same authority says Bristow is very strong among Tennessee Re publicans, and is likely to have a delegation in his favor. aug vmuuuau iruztue iiiiuks li impor tant for the public to bear iu mind that‘‘Gov. Hayes was indorsed by the Ohio Convention, and the delegates are expected to vote solid for him on the first ballot, and so long as it shall appear that he is likely to succeed; but beyond that there are no instructions.” The revolt of the Tammany orgau in New York against Gov. Tilden is explained by the shrewd Republican organs of the interior —it is simply one of the Governor’s tricks. He has bough* up the Express to swing out against him so as to convince the country that he is not on familiar terms with Tammany. It is only another attempt to get up a cheap reputation as a reformer. Ex Gov. Allen has been interviewed by a correspondent of the Cincinnati Enquirer and, alluding to those who wished to see him President, said that in the fight in this gen eration between the man and the dollar, between the people (little p), and the Money Power (big M and big P), he was glad to be recognized as on the side of the man and the people. The following is from the Richmond (Va.) Whig of Friday, and it is said in solemn earn est: ‘‘We have no personal acquaintance with Gov. Tilden, but unless we have been greatly imposed upon by many leading men of the South and of the country who for year3 have known him well, unless they have themselves been deceived, Mr. Tilden is the last man of all the candidates named we would suspect of seeking, by any personal efforts of his own, his preferment to any position of distinction whatever.” Gen. Banks spoke right out in meeting, Friday, while the House was discussing the postal appropriation bill. He charged the Democrats with attempting to cripple and de stroy the government by voting things and making no appropriation to meet the ex pense, and told them that they needn’t ex pect anybody to join their party if they pur sued that course. The “bobbin boy” is not so well grounded in his democracy as he was four years ago, and is evidently getting ready for the coming congressional election in his district. The illiteracy of the two leading candidates in the recent scandalous auction for the Unit ed States senatorship in Connecticut was one of the unique elements of the contest which is thus touched upon by the New Haven Pal ladium'. “Probably no one regrets more than Mr. English himself that he has not enjoyed the advantages of a college education, such as he has generously assisted others to obtain But Mr. English can and does write a good letter. We have excellent Democratic au thority for saying that Mr. Barnum's spelling is rather original and eccentric.” The Michigan delegation, like a good many others, has been claimed by the friends of Blaine and Bristow as having a majority in favor of each. The Detroit Pont says it stands as follows: “The del egation chosen will satisfy the Republicans of Michigan that their views and wishes will be scrupulously consulted and wisely carried out at Cincin nati. Mr. Blaine is the first choice of the large majority of Michigan Republicans as represented iu their delegation. Kext stands Mr. BrUtow, and either Blaino or Bristow would le acceptable to the friends of the other. In addition to the sixteen delegates for Blaine and four for Bristow, there is one for Mr. Conkling and one for Mr. Hayes.” [N’ew York Tribune.] The Last Boomerang. The sincere respect to which Mr. A. G. Riddle is entitled induces us to accord to his arraignment of Mr. Blaine an amount of space which it does not deserve, either on the score of Its importance or precision. The whole effort proceeds upon an extraordinary hallucination. Mr. Riddle, conceiving that a dead son-in law was in some way affected by Mr. Blaine’s vindication, attempts to defend his memory by proving that the son-in-law at different times told different stories concern ing the same matter This is bad enough, but it is made worse by the additional card from Mr. H. L. Bridgman, which Mr. Riddle’s publication compels. Mr. Riddle prints a let ter from Gen. Boynton setting forth the story Mr. Kuowlton told him, viz,, that after Blaine had been in private consultation with Stewart for some time, in Stewart & Riddle’s law office, he (Kaowlton) was called in to sign as a witness the legal transfer of tioenly fice $1000 bonds. Mr. Bridgman says that the story Mr. Kaowlton told him was to the effect that he sigoed as a witness the legal transfer for fifteen $1000 bonds. What Mr. Riddle has, therefore, succeeded in doing is to show that Mr. Kuowlton, in undertaking to tell the same story successive ly in the adjacent Washington offices of the vtuviuuuvt MWfcVVVU UUU VI lun lauoiuu ilWl/t/” fiser, made, in passing from one to tbe other, a change of $10.000—nearly one-half—in the amount! We must add, with the utmost kindness to Mr. Riddle, and everybody else concerned in this business, the opinion that if Mr. Blaine were a notorious horse thief, who had at last been caught under the most suspicious cir cumstances by .a border ruffian jury of Sheriff Lynch’s men, they could not be induced to hang him unless they had something more nearly approaching real evidence than any thing that has yet been adduced against him in this whole pitiful business. There may be evidence that he lias done something wrong— we ourselves once thought so—but if there is, in Heaven’s name produce it. This tattle about a dead man’s having told some people a story contradicting the story he told other people about a transfer of bonds in Mr. Blaine’s presence, which he guessed was to Mr. Blaine himself, begins to look like child ishness. Centennial Notes. About the 30th of the present month the un vailing of the Witherspoon monument will take place. Gov. Bedle of New Jersey has been chosen orator for the occasion. For the 4th of Jniy quite a number of demonstrations have been arranged. The arrangements for the nnvailing of the Humboldt memorial will be matured in the course of a week or two. On the 4th of July the ceremonies attending tbe uuvailiog of tbe monument to Religious Lib erty and tbe Catholic temperance fountain will take place. A business man who understands the value of advertising, occupies an entire page of a re cent number of the London News in setting forth tbe excellence of the goods exhibited by him at the Centennial. His advertisement is in sixty-fiTbr different languages. Mrs. Maxwell, the celebrated huntress of Colorado, exhibits a large collection of staffed animals and birds killed by her own band, in cluding a buffalo, Rocky Mountain Hod, and grizzly. “I’m a Philadelphia alderman,” said a stoat, pompous little man, as he approached the turn stile on tbe opening day. “Ob, that’s no mat ter,” answered the gate-keeper, “that don’t ex clude yon. Pay your fifty cents, and you can go in just the same as the rest.” Rotberel’s “Battle of Gettysburg” continues to excite much discussion, and criticism—tbe most of it hostile. Much of the figure, draw ing and coloring is good, hat tbe sky and back ground generally are poor, and the whole pic ture has a confused aDd gummed appearance. It is fortunate for Rothermel that there are no Burnets or Campbansens in the same gallery. Tbe great steam engine of the Centennial weighs 800 tons; will drive eight miles ot shaft ing; has a fly-wheel thirty feet in diameter and weighing seventy tons; is of 1,400 horse power, with a capacity of being forced 2,500 horse powei; has two walking beams weighing twen tj'inu iuuo covu, inu luuj-iucu \jj 1l Liuci 3, a teu-foot stroke, a craok-sbaft nineteen inches in diameter and twelve feet in length; connect ing rods twenty-four feet in length, and piston rods four and one-quarter inches in diameter. A set of false teeth that belonged to George Washington has been sent to Philadelphia, and will be exhibited at the Centennial. A patri otic citizen says he was very much relieved when he saw them, because if George had up set while crossing the Delaware be could have hung onto the bottom of the boat by such teeth as those, until the Nation bad bad time to turn out to his Mscue. One of the principal points of interest about the city just now is Old Independence Hall The original Declaration of Independence and the original commission of Washington as Commander in Chief of the American armies, which are in a fire-proof safe fully exposed to view, attract great attention from all visitors. The National Museum, ic the same building is also largely visited. The story of the Michigan Centennial build ing is a reminder of Edward Everett Hale’s re cent bright romance of the “Lost Palace.” It will be remembered that in that a palace car was lost and never found. In this case in real life the Michigan building was all made in that state and then taken apart and sent in pieces to Philadelphia by rail. Several of the cars that it was packed upon have gone astray. Nobody knows where they are. All track of them is lost: and the Michigan building conse quently is incomplete and canuot be put to gether. Cattle said to be the heaviest and best in the world have arrived at Phi'adelphia for exhibi tion—among them an ox weighing 4000 pounds and a heifer weighing 3,300 pounds. The exhibitors and attendants from the Hap py Isles afford a strange contrast to those of the Flowery Kingdom next to them, for the former are dressed like Americans, bear them selves in a very gentlemanly and pleasant fash ion, and for the most part speak English flu ently. The latter are clad in their womanish robes of silk, wear long pig-tails, and speak lit tle if any English. The former are progressive Mongols, the latter stanch conservatives, and it is queer to see them side by side, so alike and yet so different. This shows that, though na. ture is much, the impulse of direction is still more. Japan is bound to be more aud more pro gressive and China must be more and more conservative; nor will it be very surprising if -nk.nnnfA tie. ivonlias nv.,1 - 1 ports even in this Centennial year. The resident correspondent of the Tribune takes quite a felicitous quotation when he de scribes the starting of tbe machinery on tbe opening day: As the coantless wheels turned the bands started on their rounds, cogs fitted into their places, pistons drove back and for ward and up and down, performing their in finitly varied functions, and all at tbe sioglc touch of these two men. Tbe spectators could not fail to be reminded of the famous kiss by tbe fairy prince to the century-asleep princess, in Tennyson’s “Day Dream. A touch, a kiss, the charm was snapt, The palace banged, and buzzed, and clacked. And all tbe long-pent stream of life Flashed downward in a cataract. Every dozen yards or so the visitor stumbles upon a mass of many-colored marble, labelled “Soda-water; all kinds of flavors,” and is so licited by one of tbe half dozen attendants, or by all of tbem in chorus, to “take a glass ol tbe American national drink.” Some of tbe fountains have been run up to a height of scores of feet, they are inartistic and ungainly, and not only spoil the view of the principal avenue, but seriously obstruct tbe passage way. A young Frenchman has christened tbe prin cipal fountain “The Quaker Meeting I house.” It is a great, clumsy, sombre looking I structure, and well deserves the name. A couple evidently newly married, and be* longing to that class of disagreeable New York people who, to nse a forcible, if not very ele gaot, expression, “nave more money than brains, caused much amusement. He was naturally uo fool, but he had never learned anything, and he had not tact or modesty enough to hide his ignorance. He knew some thing, or professed to, and without hesitation answered after a fashion the many qnestions of the pretty but sliallow-pated little doll beside him. Bronze, be told her, was iron with “a copper veneer.** Dresden was “a big place for crockery,’* and “all them Brussels carpets come from Belgium.*’ Arriving at the silver display, these amusing specimens of New York civilization stood for a long time contemplating the many works of art displayed, occupying themselves principally with estimating the cost of the collection. After a time the lady’s attention became fixed on an open silver swan, intended as a receptacle tor fruit aod flowers. This she admired for a long time, and then, as if a bright idea had jasfc suggested itself, she demanded: “But say, Charlie, what do you suppose it’s good for?” Charley looked at that unfortunate little woman for a few seconds with an expression of disgnst that was simply withering, and then exclaimed, “What is it good for? Why for holding soup, of course. It’s a soup bowl; any fool ought to know that.” The tendency most broadly characteristic is towards the congenial and appropriate fiel d of household art and decoration. In the Kensing ton collection tlie ladies of the royal family of Great Britain set the fashion and take the lead. A door curtain, designed by the marchioness of Lome, with applique flat flowers, in richly har monizing tints of dark green and orange, is one of the best examples of decoration, and her sister, the Princess Christian, is also repre sented by a similarly rich and beautiful cloth. The great surprise, however, of this depart ment is the work in furniture decoration con tributed by pupils of the school of design of the University of (vinoinnat.i Metro i« fho "FmL lake” idea carried beyond Eaetlake, and bil solid and honest articles transformed into things of beauty as well. Book cases, banging cabinets, bedsteads, doors, and even pianos and cabinet are ornamented according to the high est artistic principles of design, but each in an entirely original manner; so as to reflect the individuality aud the loving work of the de signer. Rebel Prisons. The fanaticism of the South, especially among the cultivated classes, was amusing and excessive, so far as their relation to the rebel lion and the North was concerned. I am not sure but this was entirely confined to those classes. I to not remember any case in which the “poor whites” were not opposed to the war, beiog forced into it by their terror of the “master” class, nor do I remember any case in which those poor whites did not nn lerstand from the first that the South was sure to be beateu. It was quite otherwise with the up per classes, they were sure to win. On one occasion I received information that some anion men in a city on the coast of the Mexican Gnlf were in prison and were to be hung, I took steamers and troops and landed there in the early dawn, and marching directly into the place, surronnded about a dozen hous es of the principal citizens of the piaoe, includ ing that of the Mayor, and captured the mas ters. They were all taken to the broad veran dah of the Mayor’s boose, where we had a conference. They gave assurances that no vio. lenee of any sort should be inflicted on union men, and pledged their honor to that point, which was accepted as satisfactory. They were assured that auy violence of any kind perpetrated upon anion men woaid be vigor ovsly punished by a sharp retaliation. That by such a policy the inevitable evils of war would be greatly aggravated. After that matter was arranged, I asked them what the motives were which induced the South to uudertake the rebellion, telling them they were at liberty to s^eak freely, without the slightest restraint. There were about twelve of them, all gentlemen and intel ligent and cultivated men. The Mayor replied promptly, that the reason for the rebellion was that the evils, annoyances and oppressions coming apon the South from the general gov ernment had become intolerable. Ibat its pol icy had always been to favor the North at the expense of the South, and the results of it could be seeu on every hand both at the North and South. There everything was in the most flourishing coodition as any traveler might see, while at the South, except in some of the larger cities, everything was in a state ot di lapidation and decav. I said to him. “von am an educated mau aud consequently cannot be ignorant of the fact that the national govern ment has been generally in the hands of South ern men, and when by accident there were Northern men in any department of the gov ernment, they were men of Southern princi oles. So you see that it is impossible but that you are mistaheu in your views. When the rebellion commenced tbe national government was directed entirely in the interests of tbe Sou h, and Mr' Buchanan was thoroughly in accord with every principle of Southern policy, and tbe same was true of tbe beads of ail the departments; and the South had a controlling influence and power in Congress.” The Mayor said: Northern wealth and prosperity come from the products of Southern industry. Your marble palaces are built with Southern money; whi e we of the South are left in a state of dilapidation and decay. Everywhere the North is flourishing, while over a considerable part of tne South may be seen worn out lands and abandoned plantations returning to a state of uature. with bare chim neys scattered over the landscape from which the booses have fallen away. How is it, I asked, that northern prosperity is tbe work of Southern industry aud bow is it that oar mar ble palaces are built with Southern money 7 We are an agricultural people, he said; we pro duce cottou, rice, sugar aud tobacco; your Nortberu ships come down South and traus uort these to market, for which we pa; you large freight; Northern men sell them in for eign markets aud we have heavy commissions to pay; northern {men buy goods iu foreign markets and bring tbem in Northern ship* to Northern part*, aud we of the South go there and buy them for our borne consumption and they are brought down Sontb to ns iu northern ships, acd ships and goods are insnred in northern offldrt* So you see we have many profits besides freight, insurance and commis sions tolpay. all to Northern men; and when at last we nave our goods iu Southern shops ready for sale fo own people, we find they are almost always owned and kept by Northern mea. And so we fiud that when we have the necessary articles of homo consumption as tbe product of our crops, there is nothing left for oar year’s work. Very ofteo we find that we have not made the two ends of the year meet, and we are left largely in debt to Northern cities. They brve absorbed all the products of oar industry except a small portion returned to us in goods of various sorts. I cau easily see, I said, why you are kept poorer than yoa might be, but you have no reason to fiDd fault except with yourselves. Northern men come down South to vour mag uiticent forests, cut down the timber which they require, transport it North aud build their ships ot it, which are furnished with sails of southern cotton, and with these ships they tran sport your crops to market, aud yon pay them for the work Why do you not build your own ships of your own timber, with sails of your owu cotton, and man them with Southern hands—and tbus save at home all this money which you now pay to Northern ships and Northern men? Why do you not boy your own goods in the foreign markets and sell yonr own crops there, thus saving to yourselves freight, commissions land profits? Why do yon not bring these goods to Southern cities direct from foreign parts and thus do all this work for yourselves instead of paying North ern meu for doing it? The difference, I said, between North and South so far as this matter is concerned, is easily accounted for. At the North every body works with head or hands at some productive industry; everybody is earning something—in dustry, work is honorable there. At the South only the negro works—labor is not respectable; the negro is expected not only to support him self but to keep his master and his family. There is little or uo productive industry at the South except that of negro hands—and this is always of the rudest and most unskilled sort. It is inevitable that a country will increase in wealth where everybody works, while that country cannot grow rich where more than half the people spend and do not earn. N.D. News and Other Items.
