SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 1883.
Tbb land bill providing a general
system governing the sales of school
lands in Texas will' come up as the
special order in the senate to-day.
Mb. E. G. Senteb has assumed edi-
torial control of the Clebarne Tele-
gram. Under his management it
Will lose none of its character for
.prightliness and ability.
It is announced that the French
senate committee have agreed to re-
port against the expulsion^bill. Thus
it appears that the Bonapartists are
hot without powerful backing among
the "volatiles." This faltering of
the government is significant of a
coming storm in France, and who
can say that another Napoleon is not
to rule the empire ?
By the death of a Rhode Island
clergyman the fact is devolopod that
piety may be miserly, and that the
pulpit is no sure bulwark against
venality. This clergyman returned
his property at $10,000 and paid
taxes only on that valuation. His
estate is found to bo worth over a
million. Hero is ample proof of
the scriptural figure of the campbell,
the eye of the needle and tho rich
man. * /

The Illinois Central railroad man-
agement finds it as'easy to rench tho
Pacific ooast via New Orleans as by
the short routo of tho Union Pacific.
It makes rate^fVom Chicago to San
Francisco, all tho way round by tho
Crescent City'and the Southern Pa-
cific, the same as by the Union Pa
ciflc, thus showing contempt for
distance in the matter
The Texas senate struck out tho
big "N" the other day. Tho words
"National Government" were used
in the bill asking congress to estab-
lish a quarantine station at St. Louis
Island. On motion of Mr. Harris
these words were strickon out and
"Government of tho United States"
inserted. Texas didn't "catch on"
to the "Nation" idea through tho
processes of reconstruction.

Payne's Oklahoma expeditions
have, it is stated, already cost the
government over 9200,000. Better
make him title deeds to one or two
million acres and stop the expense.
The dfttrict he claims embraces an
area of 14,000,000 acrcs, and it is
represented as being tho finest and
richest spot of territory on the con-
tinent. He is entitled to something
for his dafing and cussedness, but
his greediness should bo cut down to
about the. usual proportions of the
on with the coinage!
Mr. Director Burchard, of thio mint
department, has been boforo tho
coinage committoe, and expressed
his views advorsely to the coinage
of any more silver. Ho echoes tho
recommendation of Mr. Folgor, and
lugH in the hackneyed soare-crow
that our silver is to bo worthloss—or
rather, dead-weight—without an in-
ternational standard fixing the ratio
between gold and pi Ivor. A few
days ago these harpies urged the
discontinuance of the coinage of sil-
ver oh thfc ground that there was no
storage room for it, but the commit-
tee agreed to recommend the build-
ing of additional storage room, and
now tbey change tactics and fall back
on the exploded theory that America
cannot utalizo the standard silver
dollar without having it restamped
by the nations of Europo. The dol-
lar of the daddies is Democratic, the
people are Democratic, ergo tho dol-
, lar must'Stay and the coinage most

holding 120,092,150 of standard sil-
ver of which it is tho actual owner.
It holds in addition to this $68,438,*
820 of silver in the various vaults of
the treasury at Washington and
other cities, but of this it is merely
the custodian, holding the coin simp-
ly for safe keeping, as it holds at
times many millions of legal-tender
notes which are deposited by the
national banks when'they find their
own vaults inconveniently crowded.
The silver dollar Ms giving nobody
any trouble, and this unfolding of
the secrets of the treasury shows
bow little basis there is for tho
alarm which the gold monomaniacs
have sought to arouse. After five
years work under the Bland hill the
government has loss than thirty mil-
lions of silver on its-hands which
can be said not be in circulation."
Familiarity with schemes forplunder-
ing the government has bred among a
large class in the national capital a cer-
tain contempt for legal restraints, and
has promoted the habit of regarding
every public trust as simply a chance
for making money.—:New York Times,
There is a very little prudishness
about the American girl, aim that she is
not a silent social factor may be ad-
mitted ; but, on the other hand, 6he is
not prurient and her vivacious presence
is a charm that is appreciated on thla
side of the Atlantic, however it mnv be
regarded on the other.—Pittsburg 'tele-
The great political straddle act which
the Republican party has projected on
the tariff" is bright enough in conception,
but promises to prove still more so in
execution. A determined effort to ride
two horses going in opposite directions
is sure to be brilliant; but when the Re-
publican party Is split wide open by the
strain, it will realize that it has corus-
cated at great expense.—St. Louis Re-
As the main argument for the ampli-
fication of the centsus was Its scientltic
value with a view of proving the glo-
rious progress of the race, the result is
very disappointing, and we are thankful
that insanity in the bureau has been dis-
covered. It gives us another chance.
By all means let the gang-relief systom
be adopted and see if it does not show
us a brighter future.—St. Louis Globe-
It is a satisfaction to know that one
committee of congress has had the
courage to say no to a demand for in-
creased pensions. The senate commit-
tee on pensions reported adversely en
the bill te increase the pension to sol-
diers who had lost a limb. Nobody is
disposed to be niggardly, but when,
eighteen years after the war closed, we
are paying out more than a quarter of
the whole revruue for pensions, it is
time to stop adding to the amount.—
We are against this policy of punch-
ing holes in the prohibitory law. It iB
not China that is interested in sending
coolies through our country. The men
who would gain by this traffic are fat
enough, and our surety consists in car-
rying out the terms of the law strictly.
Let the people set their faces against all
tampering with the law and demand an
account of any unfaithful servants, or
at least of the party which is responsi-
ble for their acts.—San Francisco Ex-
The Des Moines (Iowa) Leader, a
Democratic paper, says that it is an
open secret in that city that negotia-
tions are actively proceeding to unite
the Greenback party and Prohibitionists
of the state into one organization, and
that the programme is to run General
Weaver for governor on the combina-
tion ticket. This, the Leader thinks,
would make a formidable third party,
which ought to command 70,000 votes.
The Recent Civil Bights Bill Decision.
The New York Globe, the organ of
the colored citizens, says: "There is 110
law in the United States for the negro.
The whole thing is a beggardly farce.
It remains with him alone to turn the
farce into a serious reality, and the
sooner he leaves off so much foolishness
and extravagance—takes hold of the
complicated skein of his citizenship, and
commences to unravel it—the better It
will be for him. After all, the safest
law which any people can rely upon to
Insure them In their rights is a law
based upon a high development of cour-
age, nerve, manliness and thoughtful
Intelligence. Let the race talk less and
think more; dance less, and work more;
spend less, and save more. The white
man of America is a cunning fellow. He
only vlelds when he is outwitted. The
fit ofliumanity has passed aWav with
slavery. Having been made equal before
the law by a spasmodic outburst of
goodness, we have got to settle down to
that earnest and successful competition
which equality of citizenship imposes.
Let the race show a high degree of
manly courage and Intelligence."
The New York Herald, in discussing
the relation of wages and the tariff, says:
We have no hesitation in making the
assertion that the operatives In the man-
ufacturing industries in this country
pay an average of 25 per cent, of tbelr
wages to sustain the protection of the
very manufacturers who hire them and
who pay them less than a dollar a dny
fer their services. In their case, there-
fore, the American is debased to
the amount of 25 cents, and for every
dol'ar they sp«nd In the support of their
families they receive but J5 cents in
The Philadelphia Record remarks that
this is a strong statement, but admits
that it Is butressed and confirmed by un-
deniable statistics. The average wages
of operatives in the leading manufactur-
ing Interests of the country is only $250.

on articles of necessity Is more than 25
per ceat. ^

The Magazine of American History
for February, (A. S. Barnes & Co., N.
Y.,) though not a "Washington num-
ber," has considerable matter of a time-
ly character. The opening article, how-
ever, is an able discussion of the vexed
question of the naming of Rhode Island,
by that distinguished Historical Geo-
grapher, the late Dr. J. G. Kohl, of Bre-
men, Germany. This article is of na-
tional Interest; being followed by a
sketch of Lleut.-Col. William Washing-
ton. a sort of "Light Horse Harry." who
figured so prominently In the revolution.
The sesqulcentennial of the Founding of
Georgia, February 1733, has called forth
two seasonable and interesting articles,
one being on "The Mystery of Ogle-
thorpe's Birthday." by Mr. Bogart, the
librarian ofethe Georgia Historical so-
ciety. There is alto a short, but exceed-
ingly interesting review of Mr. Hubert
H. Bancroft's new volume on the histo-
ry ef Central America. Then follows
souie original letters by George Wash-
ington, the collection being entitled,
"Washington as a Farmer." These are

deenly interesting, having been written
while he was president, and being nd-
non. They throw a great deal of fresh
light upon the character of Washington.
\N e also find a reprint of liich's rare tract,
"Newsfrom Virginia," published in 1609,
of which only one copy of the original
Is known and which is of special inter-
est not only to students of American
History, but te Shakesperian collectors.
Notes, Queries and Replies, with Socie-
ty proceedings and Literary notices,
add the usual quota of interests, and
will be read with avidity. The frontis-
piece of this number is a steel portrait
of George Washington, engraved by
Hall, after a rare painting by Sharpies®.
Among other illustrations will be round
portraits of Francis I, and his mother
Louise; the Cowpens Medal presented to
William Washington; a portrait of Ogle-
thorpe, Founder of Georgia, in armor,
and another of hlrn as he appeared in
old age, attending the sale of Johnson's
Library. There is also the Tillotson—
Oglethorpe Medul, and a representation
of 1the fragmeon of the seal attached
to the Trelauny Patent, which seems
to upset previous ;notions respecting
the Seal of the Plymouth Company. Al-
together the number is an admirable
one, and worth the entire year's sub-
scription. The Magazine is becoming
more and more timely in the selection
oftopics. and during the present anni-
versary year, it will devote careful at-
tention to the nationaUientenninls. The
general reader should not fall to make
the acquaintance of the Magazine, for
whatever specialty it may be that par-
ticularly intents him, he will always
find something in its pages to amuse
and instruct him that he cannot lind
