THE probabilities are that Alaska
will have a territorial government
and some little care from the United
States. If all accounts of the present

true, there is good reason to believe
that Alaska made a mistake when

government, even if strict and harsh,
is better than none, and would pro

THE great diFicoverieS•of
centur3 and the many improvements
made,. lead many to ask what can be
done in the coming years to parallel
the achievements of the past. With
steam and lightning working for man,
and a thOusand less important agents
helping him, it seems scarcely proba
ble that the nest, century can equal
-its predecessor. But the great
prOvements in - electrical machinery
in the last year Show that in that
department of. natural science, at
least, there must-be great and
portant advances ;. and it is safe to
prodict that, in a few years electrical
light will be common in every city
and village. It may be that it will
be some time before the apparatus
will he perfect enough to Make its
use practicable in every hobsehold,
but the day will come, and this is
donbtle;s only one of the many
profereents which the future. hides.
of the evils of the time is the
extravagant use of adjectives in con 4
versation ; what is technically termed
gush." 'lsn't it too perfectly beau
tiful for any
.earthly thing," and
4 . now deliciously lovely," are applied
,with reckless ithprovidence to the
most ordinary article::.' The• evil : is
growingand, especially among ladies,
is developing in conjunction with an
a.sthetieism. Men'are less
given to the al ti ;' but they may
stake large improvement in their se
lection of apt words, free from ex
travaganee. —lf one has an idea it
does not, add to it to have it sand
wiched with four or five superlative
adjectives, and if he is talking With
out one, the• use of them only makes
the fact more glaring. Good, plain
English, free from unnecessary
words; is best to express any thought;
and, if pdople would always remem
ber it, and that the excessive use of
adjectives is an evidence that the
trier lacks culture; perhipt there
'would be an improvement.
COWGRESS AND THE TAIRUT.
One of the questions that like Ban
qui's ghost -will not " down;" but,
which insists on perPetually coming
up to annoy the Democrats and' a
few Repnblicans who refuse - to work
with their party, is the tariff ques
tion. refuses to keep quiet, and .
timid Congressmen who fear to ex
press an opinion, tremble whenever
the subject of the tariff corries,np for
consideration. Members from Penn
sylvania,- if they represent their con
stituents, haVe little - trouble, for the
,the Keystone State are
practically , unanimous on this sub
ject. A protective tariff is necessary
for every one in this country ; but .
the arguments in • its - favor apply
with especial force -in a State like
ours, which depends on coal and iron
mines, and manufacturing for her
Wealth. • •
A bill for the revision s of The tariff
is before the Senate ; Lind in some form
must pass Congressduring the present
session; and members may well be
careful of- their votes upon what is
the most important question in
Amelican politics. Just' What the
:committee should do .and of. whoM
it should be composed, are questions
upon phich there must necessarily
be a difference of opinion but there
Can be no doubt that a general, thor
ough investigation which shall give
the legislators knowledge . of the sub
ject aught to be made. After the
work of the committee is dene, then
Congress must impose such a tariff
on all important articles of. import
that come in competition with Amer
ican,manufactures as shall protect the
American articles. This country is
too ,young for free trade, and too
young for a " tariff for revenue only."
The •iniustriess demand protection
and the men who arc advocating free
trade are working for a cause that if
successful must inevitably close man
ufactoriee and mines, cheaper - labor,
farm values; everything in fact; and.
change thousands of men from con- -
sumers to producers. The policy of
• free traders is short-sighted and • un
reasonable, and is, as Senator Frye
well said, a
.compliance with• British
• ideas for . British benefit. America,
paying her workmen good;' living
wages cannot compete with the' pau
per labor of Europe. The laorers
of the Old World unable to.purchase
land, and with only,. the choice of
paying unconscionable rent or work
, inb at beggar wages, will always
manufacture articles cheaper - than
can be done here, and we must either
stop Manufacturing or give American
labor protection, by making a duty
equal to the dilterence ,between the
value of labor hereand in competing
That a nation should be self sup
porting, independent of other nations
ard able to sustain himself by the
production of eyery.necesiary article,
is a cardinal principle .of politiCal
economy. A govetnment or party
that is opposed, to a policy whiehwill
preserve this independence, does not
deserve the support of any intelligent
. man ; and yet a majority of the Dem
ocratic members of Congress are in
favor of free trade, or a tarifF which
will practically destroy our manu
factures and depend upon•foreigners
for our supplies: The tariff question
is not local, as Gen. Hancock thought
but.general. All parts of ourcoun 7 ,
try_ are affected by it, and the fanner

mills, has a better market, and ob
tains a better price foil& grain than
he could if free tradesliut the mills

grain raiser. The 'voters of eVery.
State demand careful, conscientious
action upon this question by their
lepresentatives;_ mad they demand,
too, that they shall come
,out in a
manly way and support some policy.
The non-committal, afraid-to-vote
Congressman, who waits and - dare

Forty-five Democrats have pledged
themselves to vote against the bill

Mr. 'Vance, of North Carolina made
a weak speech in favor of free trade.
A great,many Democrats will vote
that way, but the Republican party
will pass the bill, and when eleCtion
comes again the Democracy will see
that the party which protects the
laboring man, and legislates for Amer
lea and not for England, Will get the

there is reason to be thankful for the

when parties, entertainments and

freedom from the.demands of society;
weeks when work may be done which

every conceivable niche for thein in

and.chandeliers decked with smilax.
Anjoining_ the East Parlor the

• WAstfiNsiToN, Feb.' - 10.-=-An
portant conference • was held at the
Navy Department 'last week in.re
gard to the proposed , re-organization
of the navy. - There were present
Secretary hunt, the members of the
Congressional Committees on naval
affairs, the 'Naval Advisory Board,
Admiral Porter, Rear-Admiral Am.:
men and the heads of all the Bu- ,
reaus.of the Navy Department.- A
general interchange 'or views . was
had and the tenor of the remarks was
favorable to the views expressed in
the last annual. ,report•erthe. secre-:
tary of the Navy. •;. .
lt was agreed that the n - ecesSi flea of
the service require prompt and liber
al notion on the part - of Congress,
and Representative Ilarria submitted
the draft, of a
,proposed :bill; which
seemed to meet with general favor,
providing for increasing and improv
ing' the navy. it was the general
expression that the larger lof the pro
posed new vessels should be
structed first, and..the others built as
the .needs.of the service require it.
The bill referred to contemplates
the construction of large !sized fast
cruisers, at a total cost of: about $9-
500 5 000, and includes one vessel of
,less than 5,780 tons; two of not
less than 4,500 tons; two of not less
than .3,050. tons; one-dam, one tor
pedo gunboat, one cruising tdrpedo
boat and one harbor torpedo
The bill authorizes the', Secretary of
Navy to employ an expert in naval
arphitecture, steam •engineering and
ordnance, for his assistance and ad
vice in this matter.
Secretary Hunt spoke in person at
the meeting last.evening, and urged
with genuine eloquence tho necessity
of building up the navy and encour
aging the inefehant martene,.. "Our
relations on the Isthmus,” he said,
"reached a critical poitil. ,We can
not afford to give - up our r 4 ghts to
retain its control to any - foreign
power. It seems too we --settled
that with our vast possessions on the
Pacific increasing rapidly in popula•
tion and in devolopment, we 4ould
have some sure mode of communica
tion. across that .Istlimus,.whielt we
may call our own, and which ive must
at leivst fth-a time manifest our twill=
ty to. protect. • In orde.r to afford
such protectiob the consideration'of
the nucleus •of a navy- becomes im

strengthen his -position in assuming
that his cowers in the matter in
question were ministerial and not I
judicial. The Court then proceeded
to define the common law meaning
of the terns - conspiracy, which, he
said, was the combining of two or
more persons to effect an illog.d pur

of any one of such conspiring .par
