KENTUCKY re-elected on Monday of last
week JAMES W. TATE. as State Treasurer
avithont opposition, and J. 11. Lams, 4-
.pellate Judge, by a large majority. Nine
teen Senators and 100 Representatives
were elected, showing immaterial Repub
lican gains. The proceedings were gen
erally quiet, and only a small vote was
polled. Si all the votes 'not cast .are
counted.against the call of a • Constitu
tional Convention, that majority is de'
boated by public apathy. Of the ' . seven
Democrats elected to the Legislature in
Louisville, from the city and county, six
arc known to favor the re-election of Sen
ator BECK, and about the same ratio 'pre
vails in the entire gtate. •
A.COTEMPORARY suggests ; what many
people have not, thought of, that the
Pennsylvania Railroad Company is entitled
to much commendation for the.important
services it has rendered to the country
during the illness of the Prisident. It
has at several critical periods .carife'd Dr.
Ibittivros from
. New York, and Dr. Ac.
NEW from Philadelphia to the sick bed at
Washington in special trains :it the speed
of fi'ty miles :In hour. For this purpose
they have virtually surrendered, for the
time being, the - entire business of the
road, dealing it of all trains so that the
special could have an unimpeded • course.
This is a fact which should be remember
ed to the credit of our great railroad com-
There arc in Virginia three 'die,
tinet parties to potities—Bourb . on-
Democrats, who call themselvesC l on - -
servative-Deinocra t§ ; • Anti:-Bourbon
Democrats; and Republicans. The
former also l itall thetnselves "Fnri
ders," which signifies that they are .
supporters of the Funding, _bill of
1879, by which the bondholderei were
given their choice to have their claims
cut dOwn froin _547,000,000 t0;531,-
000,001; -- or fare worse. The Anti-
Bourbon Democrats . are led by .Gen.
MA 11WiE, and are _called " Readjus
ters ;" which means that they are
. to the funding scheme of
Bourbons but in favor of "readjust
ing " the claims of - the State's cred
itors so as to bring those claims
within the ability of the State to pay
principal and interest. They do this
by setting off $18,000,000 of the orig
inal debt of Virginia as the propop.
tion to be assumed and paid by West
Virginia, declaring that Virginia is
not liable for so much - of the Original
debt; and that the real debt of the
State is the ante-war 'debt less that
stun, and debts contracted since the
war. with arrears of interest.
The Bourbon Democrats elOm to
be Debt-payers, also. But theii only
title to this distinction is derived
from their declaration that the entire
debt must be paid, and their persist
ent refusal to levy the taxes required
to pay the interest, even. Itn man
is to be reckoned a debt-payer be
cause he _ admits - that he owes a cer
tain sum, yet he refuses to do any
thing to pay even the interest on that
sum, then the Funders, of Virginia
arc Debt-Payers. Not otherwise.
Our readers will reach the only just
conclusion without assistance' from
us. The struggle in 'Virginia is
between the Bourbons who claim to
be hottest but 'who do , nothing to
substantiate the claim, and the anti-
Bourbons who claim to be honest
and demand that taxes shall be levied
to keep down the interest on the debt,
and extinguish the principal by a
gradual process. -
We have thotight it well to enter
into an explanation of 'the situation
in , 'Virginia, because both Senator
CAMERON and Senator MITCHEL!. have
expressed a hope that the party led
by Gen. I.IAnoNE may succeed. For
the expression of this hope both
Senators have been sharply .criticised
by the Democratic press of the State.
It is our opinion that both can afford
to stand by their declarations in favor
of the anti-Bourbons. We have stated
the facts- briefly from the record of
both parties. ; The Bourbons practi
cally repudiate the entire debt of the
State, because they__have refused to
stir a stump in the way - of, paying
even the interest. The anti-Bourbons
practically repudiate R 9 nrelr of the
debt as is considered to be the pro
portion for which - - West Virginia
ought to be liable. 'The balance they
Propose to PAY, 11 . 2 14-4, 01 0- t 4 5 4 37
of a tax sufficient to keep doirnlhe
interest 'and _extinguish the principal
in`fortY years.' - -
Such is the 'situation in. Virghihi
so 'far* zepudiation is coraiernedi
and the sympathies of the Republicans
of the country should go out_ to
.lllsnorriand the party he leads be
cause that party is 'the only debt 7
paying party in that. State. Both
parties have declared for equal rights
to all , citizens, but neither has yet
done anything to fiubstantiate that
declaration. The only reason we
have to suppOsp that, MA'UONE' means
what he says When lie says the freed
men shall te proteetict itithe exercise
of their rights Is t4 - ,t, the freedmen
were justly rtrgnized in the delega
tions to the anti-Bourbon Convention.
On the othei hand, there was not a
single representative of the colored
race in the Bourbon Convention
which assembled last week. That
Convention was composed of the kid
gloved gentry who made large prom.
ises. Large - promises cost nothing.
They are dog cheap, , so to speak;
and a prothise without a pretence of
performance is simply a bit of fash
ionable lying.' -
It is vastly easy to ridicule and
abuse Msnosz and his party. Ridi
cule is sometimes a very proper
weapon of offense ; but a party which
has no othCiwcapon is about as hard
pushed as may be. They Democrats
have had no other weapons than rid
icule and caluinny for 'thirty years.
They undertook to beat down
,great moral uprising of the people
with ridicule and defamation tirenty
five years 'ago. But that movement
went on-until the party was driven
from power and outlawed in every
decent community. The country has
_ nothing to hope from Bourbon rule
anywhere. ,It has much to hope from
the defeat of .that reactionary - party,
and if Matrons can succeed in Vir
ginia his success will sound the knell
of a 'solid South. Our sympathies
are with the anti-BOurbons, and our
Senators have done • Well to declare
in their favor. '
" GUM"
" Facts, sir—facts! What I want
is facts," says Mr. GRADGRIND in
" Hard Times."- To his cold, hard,
prilTetical mind sentiment was an of
fense and hyperbole as abomination.
Himself utterly devoid of the finer
feelings and incapable of the' gentler
sympathies and emotions that elevate
and redeem humanity, he would have
received with disgust; and perhaps
with anger, any demonstrative affec
tion on the part of the wife of his
bosom, regarding it as a sham and a
humbug, and, had he been acquainted
with the current slang of the present
generation, would perhaps have char
acterized it as unmeaning and ridic
ulous- "gush." Mi. GRADORIND is
the representative of a large class of
men, who habitually deprecate or
sneer at exhibitions nf feeling 'which
their - own callous ;natures cannot
comprehend, and deride all effusive
expressions of sympathy as detesta
ble "gash." -
Certain GRADGRINDS of the Bour
bon Press have lately been much ex
ercised concerning what they consider
the over-ardent expressions of sym
pathy and hope which have emanated
from warm friends and enthusiastic
admirers of the wonndedL President,
and by the emotional strain to which
some correspondents , have risen in
describing the pathetic and heroic
scenes at' the bedside. of .the
ons sufferer. Some of them have
been particularly disturbed on account
of the commendations which have
been bestowed upon Mrs. GARFIELD'S
heroism in the most trying moment
which may possibly come in the life
of a devipted wife. They don't want
to read 'such stuff. Mr. GARFIZi,D;
they say, is only a man like the rest
of us, and all this fuss 'over -him is
silly and nauseating. Mrs. GARFIELD
is only one women out of a hundred
. or more who would have
been quite as equal to any similar
oecasion, and 'conducted themselves
with the like calm heroh . fm under
parallel circumstances, and . therefore
this effluence of panegyric in her case
is loathsome and unpardonable
"gush." Away with it 1 " What we
want is facts." If the fiends of. the-
PresidenOind his family must indulge
their exuberant sympathies let them
do so in private, and cease to inflict
their- feelings...their sympathies,
hopes and fears—upon a long-suffer
ing public. Let the newspapers and
their correspondents state only the
facts—the cold, hard facts, without
any admixture of sentiment., which
is not news and therefore not to be
tolerated. Let the poetasters of the
Republic also be careful how they
approach this thenie. We- have al
ready had enough of it, and . 44114
dare to a ffl ict us with , any of their
wretched verses on the subject we
will lash them with whips of scorpions.
To this effecthave qUite a number
of the Bourbon press expressed them
selves, and with such vehemence that
a few timid correspondents have been
frightened into a*ogizing for their
"gushing," under the !apprehension
that they had really .offended good
taste and exceeded the limits of sym
pathetic propriety; -
There are some emotions too exalt
ed and sacred to be shared - or under
stood by narrow, callous .and selfish
minds; yet their exhibition is that
" touch of nature," which, as SLURS
PRAIA says, " makes the whole world
kin." The "gush "O s ier our wound
ed President is the highest and no
blest manifestation which has occur
red in this country at; least within
sixteen years, and we doubt if, taking
it in Its hill eadent and depth it dins
not =pima aft uthera. J .,..The sponta
neous "gush" of"- aluinst universal
vuipithy. 161 . 0 flashed from North
and !Oath, homigait"O d* Wes t o and

nte. ta Fatandeni , : and ,humanity , as
has rarely if aver.bettire been paid,
and the most hopeful indication that
this money-getting age has mot be
come wholly sordid and hardened.
It.made in an instant our whole Na-
Lion akin, and it' was ; hard to tell
whether the always loyal North or
the lately rebelliona South:‘..tushed"
the more. fervently 'and sincerely.
Even Mr JEFFERSON - Davis, the
fallen chieftain of the. Lost Came,
could not refrain from an honest
" gush " of sympathy with the Pres
ident, which is the more creditable to
his heart and head. because he has
politically neither part 'nor lot" in'
this Republic, and, as a disfranchised
resident, owes it no all!ence and
its officers no special respect. Por
the time, indeed, this far-reaching
and voluminous "gush" seemed to
have swept away all barriers of sec
tion-and paity, all unkind'memeiries
and all conflicting interests, and unit
ed us as one people upon a common
platform of holy sentiment and sym
pathy. Among our' fifty millions of
people, derived from many nationali
ties and. entertaining innumerable
diverse political opinions and relig
ious beliefs, there' has been found
but here and there one who did not
share in the general "gush," and the'
- most of these who have been heard
from are Bourbon editors--some of
whom, we doubt not, s,uppressed their
better feelings and judgment in obe
dience to blind partisan zeal. .
There is rarely. too much " gush "
in this world in, the fikrm of 14 mpa
thy foTiftering and distress ; on the
contrary it is much too rare in this
hurrying, bustling, money-making
generation, when the motto of most
men seems to be, "Every mac for
himself, and the devil take 'the h!ind
.most." It is to - be hoped that the
wide-spread sympathy, evoked by
the almost successful , attempt to-as
sassinate the President will not be
checked by any syggestion' that it
is overdone or ouVof harmony with
the cold'conventionality of the per
iod. Let it rather broaden and deep
en. Let it "gnsh " like, a torrent,
until it embraces all who are proper
L3objects of sympathy. There is more
danger of our people becoming too
pratical and too selfi# than of going
. the other extreme-
A FIIANKFORT paper recently published
interesting statistics of tlre world's corres
pondence by post and telegraph. The
latest returns which approached complete
nesstwere for the year 1877, in which
more than four thousand million letters
were sent, which gives an average of 11,-
000,000 a day, tir 127 a second. Europe
contributed 3,030,000,000 to this enor
mous mass of correspondence ; Anterici
about 760,000,000; Asia, 1.50,000,000; Af-
rica 25,000,000, and Australia 5b,000,000.
Assuming that the, population of the
globe was between 1,300,000,000 and_l,-
400,000.000, this would give an average
of three letters per head for the entire hu
man race. There Were' in the same year
38,000 telegraph stations, and the number
of messages may be set down for . the year
at between 110,000,090 and 114000,000,
being an average 'of more than 305,000
messages per day, 12,671 per hour and
nearly 212 per minute.
AN investigation set on loot by Post
master General JAMES- has disclosed the
fact that large gnantities of the United
States mail pouches and'mail sacks have
been appropriated by the Dominion pos
tal authorities and have supplied a large
portion of their local service. The in
spectors detailed on this investigation
found several mail bags belonging to the
United States fitted with the Canadian
patented dc l iilce for locking the bags, and
they estimate that many thousands have
been so employed. They cost from $5
upward. At Windsor they found bags
and poncheabranded with "U. S." put
up and about tobe dispatched to Manito
ba. Plans for an international mail bag
and-pouch have been devised, with ar
rangements for due exchangi.
SUBTERRANEAN worms are found in the

The President has - passed another:
crisis on his way to recovery, and
agaitikkasthe knife. of Surgeon Ao
saw been called into. requisition to
assist natureln the work of restor
ing the President to , health., In con-
sequence of the rapid healing of .the
wound near the - end . of the drainage
tube, the flow of Os froni the inner
portion of the wound was interferCd
with to some extent, which caused a
rise in temperature and fever. ';The
physicians decided on Monday morn =
ing to make :'another • incision lower .
dawn than the previous one, in order
-more fully allow the escape of pus.
Dr. AoriEw performed the eperatiOn
at the request of. all the surge ons
present. It was simply made .by
cutting a new opening . to the track
of the ball below the - last rib, so that
the ribs should no - longer preVent
the wound from • being kept open..
-The patient was put under the influ-,
ence of,ether, beanies which a Spray
of riiorline was used to deaden the
external surface: Then a' long and
slightly curved . instrument was in
troduced into the wound, pushed, be
tween the ribs'and carried downward .
along the track of the bullet until its
end could be felt below .the last - rib.
From the outside,. with this instru
ment in his hand for a guide, Dr.
AGNEW made a counter-incision be
low the twelfth rib, cutting - directly
through till his knife met at the end
of the first-Mentioned instrnment4t,
, :
the 'point where he wished to inter= .
sect the' track . of the ball.. In the
operation the flesh was cut down
from the former incision, which left
a free opening for the instrument.
Unlike the case 'of the former incis
ion, however, there discharge
of matter or pus from the Wound. A
new drainage tube sv:.s put in, Which
was inserted below-insteaof above
t i
the rib, 'and gives now ' a inclined (
instead of a slight 'ascent to the pas
sage,of the pus.. Tliedrainage tube
in the former incision - still remains
and discharges, and there is now an
old and new tube in position. There
is nntubelit_the old wound, which
s , - , •. -
is nearly healed up. The operation is
' repOrted by the' physielanS as being
perfectly satisfactory,land: they - an- .
nounce it as their belief-that theVres

one,_ .
may. be conildently'anticipated.
The, following are the official bulletins
issued by the physicians during the

- .
NyEDNESDAY, August 3-7 T. M.—

day. The appearance of - the wound
and 'the character and amount of the
diSchar,ge of pus . continues satisfac

several pleasant naps during the day.
At 12:30 his pulse was 98, tempera.

. SATURDAY, August 7-8:30 A •M:— .
Shortly after, the bulletin of last eve

into _a pleasant sleep, during which
the febrile rise subsided and was no
lOnger perceptible when he awoke at
LlO P, at. Subsequently he slept well,
though with Occasional breaks during
.the - rest of the night. No morphia•
or 'other anodyne was administered.

„ . Aug. • atoND,Av, A S.-10:30 A. -M.-It
having become necessary' to:make a
further opening for the escape of pus,
we took advantage of Lhe improved
condition of the President this morn
ing. Shortly after the morning bul
letin was issued he was etherized.
The incision extended doWnward and
forward, and a counter opening was
made into the track of.the ball below
the margin of the twelfth rib, which
it is believed. will effect 'Um desired
object. Ile bore the operation well,.
and lias:Aow recovered from the ef
fects of• - •the etherization, and. is in
excellent condition. ,
Auguit: 8.- 7 7 1 p. 51.--Atter the hist

suffered some fort time from nausea,
due to ether, but Ibis hat now sub

operation; At , noon, his pulse was
104,- temperature 100.2, respiration
