This very evident that the people have got to
,pay a very 'high . price - for coal this winter; how
it is very bard, as yet, to determine. The
• subject is one of :absolutely universal interest,
'for the question of.fuel enters into every grade
and variety of human busineSs and life. Every
blody,: uibis holm . and hi his business;, is
•te.rested in, the price, of cOal,' and everybody
but the coal operator is interested in Iming
ithe price•as . .low as possible. ' '
• Who is to blame that we are approaching the
winter season, witlievery prospect of extrava
-gent Prices in the coal market.? The question
is easily' sked,.hut it is sure to receive a va
riety of conflicting - answers. New England
and New York blame the tariff, and cry out
for a•rentoval of the duty'on . fcireign coal. One
claSs of people Maine the , operators who, in_
the .LackaWanna, region,, are: standing out
stoutly, against the increasing deniands of the
Miners. They. argue that this, is reducing the
stock of coal,,and so raising the price. • They
believe' that' these companies will eventually
succumb, to• the exactions of the
. miners, and
then, with their increased expenses and . their
• diminished sback;.the 'pride must go up. An
.oppesite dais denounce the operators who
have surrendered to the miners, and insist that
a united Stand againSt the 'tyranny of the
MinereiVnion is the true principle,'and must
resultilmbringing the turbulent; population .
the coalt diStrict . to Antiong these con
flictingjudgments,who is really to blame? •
As in many . similar . cases, in other depart
ments of, human`-saciety; the blame for . the
preeent state of affairs, to injurious in \ its effects
upon all classes in'the community, is probably
to be divided, Theintmediate fault lies in the
fact_that_coal owners and. operatoti
under existing- circumStancesoto ',real control
of their own property„.,and ,buSiness.. They hold

The theatricalseason in this city will begin
to-night at the Walnut Street Theatre, with a
!'new sensational• play,' which is not, however,
'to be considered as an indication of the eltar:-
acter Of the winter. campaign. This theatre is
:especially. tbe patron of "stars," and itkas al
:ready announced engagements with. several of
the highest in the profeSsion—with Edwin
Jefferion, John S. Clarke, Edwin For-'
test, Kate Bateiriati,, Mrs. D. P. Bowers, and
'others. The company is, we believe, a good
one. Those membefs of it with whOin the
I)iiblic are familiar, such as Mr. and Mrs. Wal
cot, Mr. an&Mrs.• Chapman ) Ind Mr. Fawcett,
are very e.Ncellent, and very 'popular actors, and
y'e are assured that 'Several of the new mem-; .
liers have unusual '1:11e difficulty with

AS "My ;lord, the carriage waits,"
We hope there will be an improvement in this
respect this season. '.'; ; •
The. Arch street theatre willintroduce to the
public Lydia; Thompson
,and her Engli'sh•troupe
on the Mit inst.' The , regulai dramatic season
will begin atthe conclusion of :Miss ThompsOri'S
engagement. The stock : company
,is a good
one, containing nearly all of the most valuable
members of last year, and one or:two new:ac
tors of reputation.', Of' the: - Lydia

son Tosteerto the infinite-aggravation:of. cer—

The Chestnut,Street Theatre is yet in pro
cess of reconstruction, and Garrettson has
not yet completed, the organization of her
forces. But she las secured several clever
actors and actresses for ler stock Company ;
and as she has had large experience in the busi,
ness, we may reasonably, expect the best
results from her management. The Theatie
Comique will probably bp without any regular
company, but will the ,devoted to miscellaneous
entertainments. The Galtons, who gave the
rhee reputation, will undertake a tour .in the
South and West., The American will continue
itst unbroken career ,of prosperity as a variety
theatre. The new Gelman theatre has not pro
, gressed further - than the architect's dra,wing,but
it certainly will have an existence. The pro.
posed /theatre upon Chestnut street, beloW
Eleventh, is not any more advanced. The
Broad .Street Theatre, about which was
so , much talk last winter, is not built and never
willle f .as we declared at the time. ,
The,musical proniise for the winter is very
satisfactory. Apart from the action ,of the
various chosal societies, which we cannot Ws
.cuss here,Abe instrumental. _ musicians . have
heen exerting.themselves so that we may look
far very satisfactory results. Carl Seas •has
united with:the Germania orchestra, awl tin-
icier his‘directian symphony concerts will be
given weekly in Musical Fund /3211., as during
last year. It is Intended to make these enter
tainments of the highest character; and, with.
the full oachestra, and good feeling among
members, this .can easily be done. Mr.

Possibly the great cause of .Democratic
content with President Gannt's f! junketing" is
not so much the mere fact'cif his absence from
home, as the charaCter of the amusements in
which he indulge,s. A President who disgraces
himself by dodging. aboutiLin the surf, treading
a measure of 14nceis," driving a de
graded animal:at the .rate of;amile`in two and
a halft minutes, ,smoking cigars; visiting a
theatre or two, and shaldnghands with hi's ad
mirers and - friends4s - ccrtairilyTunwOrtby of.
the respect of thoie of his felloW-:eitizens who
have regarded Andrew' 'Johnson as
. a model
"junketer." To have endeared himself to
these persons,.and won high encomiums, Presi
dent Grant should have'
,traveled through
ten or , fifteen States, and • made
'blackguard speeches -from' the - platforms
of the cars, denouncing' Congress, reviling, his
political enemies, bandying slang with his
audiences and making :a vulgar exhibition of
himself generally; orelse he should have visited
'the grave' of some-one of his relations as A: J.
did, and there wept tears, and „Made political
speeches, ielieveii occasionally" With, autobio
graphical anecdotes of his early 'years. When
Mr.' Johnson swung armind the circle and
'made the cheek, a every decent American
tingle with shame at the spectacleof a drunken
'President haranguing rowdy crinvd.s,the Demo
cratic_ress''bad no 'words ' but Of . praise for
him. It is a pity that they', cannot be content,
to perinit General Grant to enJo' a .quiet holi
day like a gentleman without assailing him.
The New York ;:World has the following
comment, this morning, upon our recent re-
Marks on the Hester Vaughan ease.;
• "That physician (Dr. Susan A. Smith) having
casually commented; upon. the immunity of
the real culprit in the case, the father •of Hes
ter Vaughan's child the Philadelphia paper
intimates :very plainly that that person is a
negro; which may or may not be true, but
• which the Philadelphia paper states as if it
were an unanswerable reason why he should
not be punished. That is to say, as between a
Welshwoman who has no vote and an Afri
can man who has, or is likely to have, ; Penn
sylvania justice . and -Pennsylvania clemency
lean to the colord-side.. this, if„ not alto
gether pleasing, is frank."

Uneasiness is felt among the Conservatives • at
the announcement that President 'Grant will
