THK Postmaster General meant business when he ordered that no Post master should absent himself from hi post of duty, without consent of the Department. The Postmaster at Kala mazoo, Mich., disobeyed the order and went to New York, where he remain ed a week. He.is now a suspended official. HENOK BAHCA, the Spanish Minis ter to the United States, committed suicide in New York on Sunday morn ing last, where it is said he arrived with a view of sailing with hi- wife and daughter for France. The cati-e of the ra.-h act is supposed he financial difficulties. lie wa- popular and much esteemed in Washington, both in hi ofiicial and social relations. 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'!

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 -.

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.

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."

It is not a matter of wonder that tho Wolfe independents are loth to accept the work of the late republican state convention. With Mr. I.ivsey, the creature and j representative of Chris.

With . the deposits of the state treasury to 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.
