The strike of the Baltimore anil

of - violence never before witnessed

in this country, and 'which call for
the unqualified denunciatson of every
good citizen: " The strikers may have
had grievances for which the railroad

nessed in Pittsburgh, on Saturday

to that class of labormi : who have
* poorly paid for their toil. It
evidences a spirit of I ,4ornmunism
which should receive no countenance
in a country where all the avenues
of business and trade, as well as ofti

We have :no desire
of upholding rallioad and other cor

the day .when honest toil shall re
ceive adequate, compensation ; but
in our opinion, the proper way to
sequre such

employer shall conduct his affairq
or whom he shall'emplOy.- The fasci
nation of railroad life seems to have
won our young men from all other
business , avocations, and now with
all the difficulties and hardships_
which attenitraiiroading, - young men
by the scores- are yearly leaving the
farm and other pursuits to seek em
ployment in the lowest Positions on
railrouls, until the supply is far
greater than the demand ; and as the
price of labor, like any other-corn
mofiity; is regulated by the Aawa q
supply and demand, the , wages cora- .
manded by unskilled labor on rail=
road trains is beggarly. Strikes will
never correct the evil, because if ev
ery-man employed, as brakemen, fire
men,. etc., on' alt the roads in the
country were to leave; their positions
would:be filled in twenty-four hours.
Let young men recognize the fact
that railroading is overdone, that the
supply of laborers is greater than the
demand, and seek occupation in oth
er directions, and , thereby maintain
the dignity of labor awl the certainty
of remunerative wages in dvery

TUE Cabinet has been giving - 4-
teption to our relations with Mexicb.
At a recent meeting the Secretairof
War made a statement to the effect
that the Mexican military authori
ties have withdrawn from the agree
ment made by Gen. Taxvino with
Gen. ORD, to co-operate for the sup
pression of raids across the Rio
Grande ; that that Government now
insists that 'the MexiCan authorities
shall, themselves, be permitted to
prevent unlawful incursions from - the
Mexican side, and, that the Govern
ment of Mexico also remonstrates
against the passage . of the Rio GiAnde
by American troops, in accordance.
with - the orders - recently issued to
Gen. ORD. The Secretary, express
ing his belief -ra\the sincerity of the
Mexican authorities, recommended
that they be' given an opportunity to
prove their ahility*prevent the in-.
vasion of T,exas in the \ future, This
recommendation was adopted by the
Cabinet, and Gerf.'":oan'`will be in
structed in accordance 'therewith.
For the present, therefore, oiir. troops
will . refrain from the imirsuit or \ eattle
thieves across the - Rio Orandk, in
the hope that the Mexican Govern
meat will be able •to execute Its
avowed purpose of :controlling the
marauders on the b&der. Should it
appear that Mexico:is either unwill

effect of the, - flags and May poles was
charming, especially the Marbach colors

worn by, even the smallest boy in honor
of the •'people's poet." Upon the Mar

behind which peers a. Mtge giant or "Wild

On thiS occasion it was announced that
the friends of Schiller in Moscow desired.
to send to the home of his bialys; bell to
symbolize his immortal ".Sting of the
Bell." •
• Shortly after. the bell was sent, its ded
ication calling forth another large assent- '
blage, as well as the eloquence of J. (1.
Fischer, who has already,delivered twen
addresses on this inspiring the Me.
This bell (duly examined and rung by
each of our party) is in the Alex
' ander Church, a short distance from Seidl
ler's house. Upon the anniversary of the
poet's birth and death, the-- bell is rung
for an hour, morning and
,evening. ,Its
name, "Concordia ; " is engraVen uponit
in large letters. A wreath of Oak 'and
laurel runs about it. Around the enFve
is a head of Schiller, and around the rim,
a motto from the Song of the Bell. Pp--
posite the head is an open book with the
words, " Viviis Vneo mortnos' plangO ;" •
under this the inscription : " Per liemmt
Sebiller'B von dessenTerehrern in lloskan

Butthe little-raorh Where Schiller was
born became of course the central point
of interest to us. On the, wall ! opposite
the door bang portraits ofsliis father and
Mother-the father hi his officer's uniform
—the mother's face betokening traces of
intellect and beauty. Between these, a
few photographs of the family. ' , The Only.
articles of furniture - in the room are, a
small table, a writing-desk, an arm-chair,.
a stoohcovered with fearfully oleaginous
looking leather, a small' Kph) iiing wheel
of his mother's and on the top of the
stove a poor little model of the house
where ho died in Weimar. -.Up staris are,
to be seen . Schiller's library, and pictures`
representing scenes from his various
plays. We bought here the ferg-simile 'of
a letter addressed by the youthful poet to
liisfut um mother-in-law: -
\lts indistinct chirography is hard to def
ciPlier, but as:we hold it among our treas

were determined to destroy the rail

do no injury to that belbngingto

rioters therriselves turned in and
helped to extinguish the flames.
