Bayard's Peace Speech.
Certain journals of influence Lave as
sumed that the republication of Mr.
Bayard's speech in favor of peace, made
te the people of Delaware at the outset
or our civil war, necessarily takes him
out of the field of presidential candidates ;
and this, net because he may be charged
with any unfriendliness te the Union or
lack of sympathy with -its cause, after
the struggle had been fairly entered into,
but solely because of his belief that the
war should have been avoided. The idea
is net that Mr. Bayard's disloyalty un
fits him for presidential candidacy, but
that he is tabooed, because his judgment
was against the inauguration of a war
that resulted successfully and in a re
stored Union. 2e accusation of disloy
alty is made ; it is simply one of false
judgment; and a judgment which, if
false, would at least have spared the
bleed and treasure, the debt and death,
that the war cost. It is net even a
question wlrether this war was net am
ply repaid by the restored Union ; for it
cannot be assumed that the separation
of the states, if then acceded te, would
have been a permanent one. The inter
ests of all the people of the United States
summon them te union with each ether
in one government ; and if this is the
fact the states would net have remained
long apart. If it is net the fact, then
certainly the Union would net have been
restored : and it ought net te have been ;
if it is net the fact the Union will net
long exist, new that it has been restored.
It is net te be disputed that a single
democratic government cannot be perm
anently maintained ever sections of di-
verse interests when their political union
is, upon the whole, found te be disadvan
tageous te any of them. The guarantee
of the perpetuity of our Union is based
upon the mutual interest of the states in
it, or it is founded upon sand.
Tlt Mr. Bayard has ceased te be
available as a candidate because he was
for peace instead of war, even for two
months after Fert Sumter had been fired
upon in 18G1, is net se certain as it has
been assumed te be at first blush by very
many, if notmest.of these who have con
sidered it. The enlyweight it is entitled
te is as an indictment of his political
judgment, if he was wrong. He boldly
assumes new the full responsibility for
what belaid then, and declares that he
stands just there te-day. " I am op
posed," he declares, te "internicine
strife "and he challenges the Jlepublican
party, and asks the Democratic party, te
make this the issue of the political con
test this year.
The demand is at least worthy of con
sideration. Mr. Bayard has this advan
tage in his position taken in 18Gl,that it
was taken by the great mass of the Dem
ocratic party at that time. Their advice
wasnettaken and their judgment was
net followed. "We are net convinced that
they were mistaken ; but it would scarce
ly be wise in us, new that we have paid
our full share of the cost of the opposite
policy, te put ourselves in a position te
reject the profit that may come te us from
it. The Union is new in our hands and
its power is ours te control the po
litical element that found it te its
advantage te bring en the fratricidal
war and which did bring it en for selfish
purposes. It is net te our political ad
vantage te maintain our position of 1861 ;
we can well afford te try the idea then act
ed upon that a Union of force is the kind
we have. It is certain te be reversed
whenever the interests of the states be
come tee diverse, if they ever de ; but
meanwhile the idea will answer te sub
due every weak show of rebellion.
But we can frankly assume a full share
with Mr. Bayard for our peace proclivi
ties in 1S61. "We have no reason te be
ashamed of them. If we were wrong-headed
our hearts at least were right ; and we
would net be at all afraid te put up
new a candidate who declared in 1SG1
that he was for peace. The people are
net se senseless as te strike down a geed
man, loyal te the Union all through the
war, because he did net want it te be.
Tti'ucjhave this disposition we have
very little available presidential timber in
the Democratic party ,and even the Repub
licans would find their public men mere
than decimated. Mr. Tilden was thor
oughly with his party in its opposition te
the war, and of course, it is net he who
cists this first stone at Mr. Bay
ard. Fer Mr. Tilden and Mr.
Biyard te contend ever this
matter would be a veritable Kilkenny
cat fight. They had better both boldly
stand by their position in 1861, and the
Democratic party will stand there along
It is paying a very peer compliment te
the intelligence of the voter te suppose
that the war Democrat or war Republi
can of 1SG1, who believed in war from the
very outset and never doubted its
expediency after Fert Sumter had
been fired en, will vote against
Mr. Bayard because he was then for
peace. If we are te have another civil
war seen, or te be threatened with it, it
would excuse the Union men for
voting against him ; for he could net be
for such a war, he said then and says
new. But as such an issue is net contem
plated in this generation it hardly enters
fairly into an estimate of Mr. Bayard's
presidentialqualificatiens. "We have objec
tions te his candidacy, but this is net
one of them ; and we de net believe it
affects greatly the question of his eligi
bility. m m
The Sherman club, of Cincinnati, has
published and te its courtesy we ewe a
copy of it "The Life and Public Ser
vices of Jehn Sherman," by Ben Perley
Poere. It is most remarkable for what
it does net contain. It neither explains
hew Sherman became a millionaire with
no ether occupation than chairman of the
finance committee of the Senate, nor
does it make any reference te his labors
as " a visiting statesman " in Louisiana.
Unless we have received a defective copy
we cannot commend this biography for
The pious editor of the New Yerk
Independent is greatly outraged " in his
mind," because of the preposition
which did net become a law that Seuth
Carolina should adept the educational
qualification for suffrage and disfran
chise all who cannot read nor write. In
the opinion of this orthodox Republican
journal this would be "infamous,"
"robbery," "stealing" and an "enor
mity." But Massachusetts has the same
law and the Independent's editor lias never
lest any sleep ever it.
The New Yerk Sun is very despond
ent ever the political situation, which, te
its mind, is involved in portentous
gloom. Last fall the Sun was engaged
in daily giving te the country a new can
didate whom it premised could be elected.
It new concludes that nobody has any
chance at the Republican nomination ex
cept Grant; his election it anticipates
will be the utter overthrew of our con
stitutional system, and the only hope is
in Democratic success; such success it
deems well-nigh impossible in the pies
sent condition of the party. It seems te
think that no Democrat can be elected
without Mr. Tilden's consent ; that Mr.
Tilden himself cannot be elected, and
that he will net interest himself in the
election of anybody but himself. Se it
reaches the melancholy conclusion that
all hope for the Democracy, and hence
for the country, is well-nigh extinct. Its
conclusions are mere logical than itsprcm
ises are well taken. Grant may or may net
be the Republican nominee. If he should
be he is as likely as net te prove the
weakest candidate that his party could
select. Then, en the ether hand, Mr.
"Watterson tells us that Mr. Tilden is
looking around for some one en whom te
cast the burdens of a presidential can
vass ; an authentic report from "Wash
ington has it that at the late conference
there of representative Democrats,
" while Mr. Tilden had net many mem
bers of the committee favorable te his
nomination, the general sentiment to
ward him was respectful and conciliatory.
The opinion was expressed that he would
net be found making trouble in the con
vention ; that he would be recognized
there as an influential Democrat, whose
advice, if he gave it, would receive re
spectful consideration, and that, while
his own nomination was net proba
ble, if he offered advice as te a
candidate, and did it judiciously,
this would have much weight."
Thus, nothing is mere likely te happen
than that the party will find a candidate
with whom Mr. Tilden will be abundant
ly satisfied, whom the whole party will
heartily support and triumphantly elect
ever any possible Republican, by a ma
jority that will make the Sun shine
bright and clear through the eclipse of
doubt with which it is new overshadow

A restless agitator, who is never happy
unless he has some row through the

pack him in ice, cool him down, he is
making a " feel of himself." and trying it

Rebellious Military Students.
Twenty-seven students have been ex
pelled from the Virginia Military institute,
at Lexington, for disobedience of orders
and breaking arrest. The dismissed stu
dents had requested General Francis II.
Smith, the superintendent, te grant them
additional suspension from duty, te en
able them te prepare for an examination
in descriptive geography, which he refused,
as he was en the point of leaving for Staun
ton en a business yisit. The students re
fused te obey the commandant of the insti
tute in the superintendent's absence, and
were dismissed upon his return. Seme
few of the class declined te join the rebel
ion and three or four of these who did re
turn te duty.
Kentucky is the great hemp-growing

Mr. Grinnell, United States consul at
Bremen, predicts a large emigration from
Germany te the United States in 1880,
owing partly te the contemplated increase
of the imperial army. The number of cm

was 26,230 ; in 1878 it was 20,746 an in

Tiie New Yerk Herald's Irish relief
fund has mounted up te $258,014.93. Its
committee has had a meeting in Paris, all
being present except Cardinal McCleskey,
who has made the archbishop of Dublin
his proxy. The committee has concluded
that the most urgent need for immediate
assistance is in these remoter regions of
the country that have as yet scarcely bceu
touched by the various committees organ
ized in Ireland and England ; and, that,
bad as the trouble is new, this may net be
the worst of it. Prevision must be made
te feed the people for at least three or
four months till the next harvest, indeed
and therefore that if they are in want
and sere stress new their condition must
necessarily be worse by and by. The
Herald's committee will personally visit
and inspect the needy districts.
Of the prizes for architectural designs
of school buildings awarded in New Yerk,
the metropolitan architects wen nine, the
first gees te California, a state that is sec
ond te none in the attention she pays te
her school system in all its branches. The
ether prizes go te Bosten, Milwaukee and
Philadelphia. The committee declare that
they have net been influenced in any way
by the exterior architectural features of
any plan. It is te be noted that the com
mittcc is of the opinion that no school
building should occupy mere than half the
ground allotted te it that a large build
ing cannot properly be lighted unless
all four sides contain windows. But
out of the huudrcd or mere plans, many of
them admirable, that have just been ex
amined, the committee does net find one
that fully answers all requirements.
New Yerk is agitated ever what it
deems its insufficient harbor defenses, and
the Sun declares that against some of the
world's great ironclads the metropolis
could offer as weak resistance as an African
sea coast village against a British cruiser.
The proposed important addition te the
present forts and submarine mines is twin
screw vessels, carrying each an enormous
gun, arranged te fire ever the bow ; steam
rams ; and vessels te operate movable
torpedoes. The Sun thinks that we had
better carry out a skillful method te neu
tralize the great foreign ironclads than te
spend millions copying them. A well
managed ram, a few hundred pounds of
dynamite or torpedoes playing around
them in deep water, would make these
monster vessels only gigantic coffins for

ertj", the pastor, offered a prayer, and fol
lowed by giving a brief history of the mis
sion, from which it appeared that the Sun
day school was first organized en the 1st
of June, 1879, in a room in a private house
Ne. 509 Christian street. At this meeting
thirty five Sunday school children were
present, the whole number in attendance
including teachers and visitors being fifty,
nine. JDn the 21th of June a deed for the
let corner of Green and Christian was
secured. The let is 46 feet front by
103 feet in depth, the price paid
for it being $323. On the even
ing of the 23th of June Divine ser
vice was for the first time held en the let,
a large congregation being in attendance
and ground was formally broken for the
construction of the new building, by Jehn
S. Gable. On the 30th of June the mem
bers of the Yeung Men's Temperance
Union commenced the work of excavating
the cellar, and worked at it almost every
evening, after their usual day's work was
done, until it was completed. Their work
was a free-will offering te the cause of the
mission. On the afternoon of the 24th of
August the corner-stone was laid by Rev.
Laverty in the presence of a large congre
gation. The Yeung Men's Temperance
Union next organized a fair te raise funds
te assist in putting up the building. The
fair was held In Relcits's hall, Prince
street, opposite Fulton opera house, con
tinuing from the 13th te the IStli of Octo
ber, and netting about $100. The build
ing was proceeded with and with some as
sistance from the parent cliuich ras finish
ed. It is a substantial and attractive brick
building, 32 feet front, 50 feet in
depth, anil covered with slate. It is
in general appearance net unlike the new
African church, having a handsome front
with heavy cornice and spacious doers and
windows, and, as it is located en high
ground, makes quite an imposing appear
ance. The interior walls arc finished in
white, the pews and pulpit being grained
At the conclusion of the pastor's histor
ical sketch of the mission, the children
were addressed by Jehn S. Gable, Jacob
Lighter, of Iowa ; Peter S. Geedman and
Rev. J. F. Wcishaiupel. Between these
several addresses there were a number of
appropriate hymns sung. The school was
then dismissed te nuke room for the large
number of persons caigrcgated outside.
After the usual preliminary service Rev.
A. II. Leng, of Miytewn, preached the
dedicatory sermon, lis theme being "the
universality of tlu Kingdom of Christ,"
and his text the 2d verse of the 2d chapter
of Isaiah : " And it shall come te pass in
the last days tha: the mountain of the
Lord's house shall be established in the
top of the meuntaiis, and shall be exalted
above the hills ; aid all nations shall flew
into it." The reverend speaker quoted
largely from the scriptures te show that
the kingdom of Christ will be established
in all the earth, and quoted from history
te prove that the prophecies te this effect
are being rapidly fulfilled, and that the
signs of the times unmistakably show that
the establishment of the kingdom of
Christ is near at hand.
At the close of the sermon, which was
attentively listened te, a collection was
lifted which in amount far exceeded the
most sanguine expectations of the friends
of the mission.
Rev. J. W. Deshong, of Columbia,
made the cles.ng addiess, which greatly
helped te excite the liberality en the part
of these prcsci t. Among the donations
made the mission was a handsome pulpit,
presented by Mr. Henry Schell. of this
city, and a pulpit Bible and window-blinds
by several friends of the cause.
The closing prayer of the dedicatory
services was made by Rev. Deshong and
the benediction was given by Rev. Leng.
There will be Divine services at the
mission this evening, en which occasion
Rev. A. II. Leng will preach. There will
also be services te-morrow evening, when
the pastor Rev. D. A. L. Laverty will
preach. Should the interest in these meet
ings warrant it, there will be meetings
every evening during the week except
Wednesday evening, when there will be

The New Yerk Seed Leaf Market.
The IT. S. Tebacc Journal continues its
creakings, though it finds nobody as yet te
sympathize with it. Its last issue says :
The inactivity continues. Everybody in
the market leeks sleepy, but nevertheless
in conversation evince a commendable
hopefulness that as seen as the '79 crop
comes into market business will take the
shape of the much-talkcd-of-beom, and
that the sun of great prosperity will shine
directly en Water stnet and vicinity. It
will ccrtaiuly be a matter of unusual in
terest as te who will be the first seller and
buyer of packings of the crop named.
There will be such an overwhelming
majority of sellers as compared with
the purchasers, that the latter will
find themselves in a predicament,
especially as both the late and
early purchasers claim te possess
packings of such magnilicance that the
very sight of them will be sufficient te
threw the prospective buyer into a severe
purchasing spasm, and that price will be a
thing of net even miner, but of no consid
eration at all. Iu the lace of the daily in
creasing number of purchasers in and
about Lancaster, and also in the tobacco
growing regions of Connecticut, packers
evince a decidedly jubilant disposition,
while the predictions of the U. S. Tobacco
Journal are sneered at and treated with
haughty contempt. These people probably
forget that with every new buyer in the
country, another chance of disposing of
their own tobacco is lest. Tiiis very acti
ity in the country is what will act detrimen
tally te the packers who expect te sell their
investments in bulk. It almost seems as if
the jebbeis, large retail dealers and manu
facturers of sonic note are imbued with a
spirit of rebellion. They aie turning pack
ers, and even if their purchases are net
very large they will enable them te bear the
market for a long time and till weak hold
ers sell out at low figures. The great error
of the first buyers of the '79 Pennsylvania
crop was that the excellent leeks of the
tobacco made them forget the quality that
could be had. If they had paid one-half
the figures they actually did pay (and they
could have done se) and then had purchas
ed twice the quantity, the crop would be
confined te fewer holders and an easy nut
let found iu the jobbers and maiiufai'tuieis.
Hopes of an extensive expeit business
arc booming up agaiu. Everybody knows
thai only cheap tobacco can go te Emepe.
and our Pennsylvania and Connecticut
leaf has cost tee much te permit its being
put te such use. The '79 Ohie and part et
the Wisconsin ciep aie at the disposal of
the exporters. These, however, de nt t
interfere with the hen.e ii;uket if thi-y
remain in this country or find users in
Europe. The wiseacies who contemptu
ously smiled at the earnest apjieals of the
If. S. Tobacco Journal early in the packing
season, will sorrowfully i egret it when
the time comes te sell their he-ealled bar
gains. Tiie sales of last week wc enumerate as
