ENGLISH officials it seems are not
pleased that the United States return- 1
ed a few of the assisted paupers sent
to this country who were incapable of
earning a living in their own country.
The United States welcomes all for
eigners who emigrate here to better
their condition and live under a free
government, but if a government has
no more decency than to take advant
age of this liberality to send their
helpless paupers here for support, our
government is entirely justified in re- j
turning them, whether they arc pleased
or not.
A REITHLHIAN paper says the
Democratic party do not seem to
think as much of Senator Stewart now
as they did last year. Well.no!
yeat Stewart vehemently proclaimed
that lie was honestly and conscien
tiously in favor of reforming the abuses
of administration which his party had
fixed upon the state, and the Demo
crats were sirnplo enough to believe
him. This year they have learned
that he win an infernal hypocrite then,
and is willing tool of the bosses now.
Is it wonderful that respect should dife
under such circumstances'!
The Death of Montgomery Dluir. I
Tlio Hun. Montgomery I Hair li"*l j
at his residence in Prince George.-!
county, Maryland, a few mile.- Jroin
Washington, on Friday last. Mr.
Blair for many years lias been a con
spicuous figure in the political and
social life of Washington ami the state
in which lie lived, and well known to
the country as the distinguished 1 Vt.
master General in the administration
lof President hiucoln. He was a re
! markahle ineniber of a famous lumily,
and like his distinguishetl father,
' Francis P. Blair, illustrated a life
conscientiously ami earnestly devoted
to lmnorahle works controlled by iiigli
motives. The active career of Mr.
| Blair, say- the Washington he
! gan with his graduation from the Mili
tary academy, forty-eight years ago,
and covered the period of most rapid
development in the material, intellec
tual, educational and moral growth of
the country. It covered, al- •, the <ra
|of anti-slavery excitement, the great
civil wur, and the eti.-uing period of
reconstruction. >uch a man a- Mr-
Blair would, in all probability, have
achieved distinction if he had follow, d
the profession which he lir.-t eh -e-
But army lit",- in time of peace did m t
satisfy his active mind, and he -ought
in the prof, -.-ion of the law a li- Id tor
greater activiti, - and more agreeable
dutit -. He was eucct --till at the bar,
and soon took high rank in his pr - j
t'es-ion. Mr. Blair wa- a thoroughly
etlicient Pi'-tnia-t. r (leneral under ti,
tir-t Kepuhliean Pn sid> nt, and intro
duced various postal reforms, tln
utility of which has IXNTI ntte-ted 1v
the experience of hi- succt--or-, lie
began his public life a- he i f - 1 it, a
Democrat, and as u wi-e coun-<! r
in matter of party jioliey. A- a

and buine— relations Mr. Blair led a
blameh-s life, and left an example
worthy of emulation.

Si NATOK "B >ii N Si i;W A i:I. the C n
; sistent, denounces Gov. I'attison as an
"arbitrary executive" attempting "an i
invasion of the people's rights." This I
j will certainly le new- to the people as
! they are strongly impre-ed with the
belief that the reverse i- true —that
j Patti-on is standing in the breach
warding otT the vigorous blow- of
John's Stalwart a- ociatc- to crush the
constitutional provisions designed to
| protect the "people's right-.'' A large
jMirlioti of the people of Pennsylvania
arc disfranchised in direct and positive
violation of their rights. This dis
franchisement Stewart t Go. seek to
perpetuate by refusing to pass a fair
; and just apportionment bill in accord
ance with their constitutional ohlign
i tiou as members of the legislatuVe.
All that the Governor or liia friends
• a-k or will ask is fair play and a just
> recognition of the equal rights of Un
people. Under all the circumstancc.-
of the ease as they exist, John makes
a bail figure in assuming the ro/c of an
indignant protectant against the fan
cied encroachment of an "arbitrary
executive." The pretended Indepen
dent of Inst year now the supple slave
of the political conspirators bo former
-1 ly denounced, is not in position to de
nounce the Governor or any other i
honest man.
BY the death of the Hon. Mont-.

SI-HAKIM. of the record GOV. Palti
soil has made as chief magistrate of
I'. nnsylvania, the New York It TO Id
-ays : "II • ha- outlived the criticism
with which his administration was
greeted, and those of hi- own party
who were indifferent or hostile are
numbered now among his ardent sup
porters. The Democratic pre-?, with
but few exceptions, have followed in
the wake of the parly lenders, and in
stead of the linlf-ht art'd support which
the Governor used to get ho is prai-iil
and appbiU'h d in all thoglory of large
type. The Governor's independence
of party trammels caused hostility and
jealousy ; his achievements, which
have always kept pace with his prom
i-t a, Imvo brought about the present
revulsion of feeling. It would l>c use
less now to recapitulate the events
which have made Governor I'attison
so popuinr; in fact, they have been
recorded nt length in the Herald. It
is only necessary to say that never be
| fore in the history of the Common
wealth have so many measures of ro
form became law. The Governor's
policy has been so well defined that
the Democratic party will rely upon
it in the campaign of next fall."

bank on Mr. Magee would go into the
lobby of the next legislature, if it tbould
be republican on joint ballot, and die
tate the nomination and election of hi*
favorite to the United Nutc* senate.
That would be indeed a lame nod im
potent coneluaion for the vigorous and
resolute independentisiu of 1881 and
1882. Independent support of C'oper
in his canvas* this fall therefore n>can*
independent suicide. Independent aid
to the machine at the apptoacbiog elec
tion therefore is equivalent to what in
dependent surrender to the bosses in
the senatorial struggle of 1881 would
have resulted in. All thia is o plain
that the most ordinary comprehension
will not fail to perceive it. It is not
therefore by any means certain that Mr.
Cooper and the confederated boa*** will
succeed in deceiving and rcoapturing
the independent* in the approaching
