Blair and the "Finnegan."
The Toledo Coennacial, of,:.A.ugust 1,
brings topubhc notice, and comments upon
an incident in the career , of Frank .Blair.,
that created quite a sensation among - the
Fenian at St. Louis at the time of its oc
currence. ' It says:
The Dentocratic party, and especially in
the North, is largely made up of Irishmen, ,
and most e Irishmen aref Fergana. Frank
Blair is the Dethocratic candidate for Vice
President. Aence, all Democratic Irish
men and Fenian are zealous supporters of
Frank Blair. But this is not the only claim
which that gentleman has to their votes, Is
we will show. About tlie time_ X the Fe
nian invasion of Canada, in 1866, the Feni.
ans of St. Louis held e festhia4 'and feeling
the need of a little "blarney," they deputed
a committee to Gen. Blair; asking his pres
ence and a speeob. Now nothing ever
easier %err Frank Blair tininn speech;
and it matterbitlittle as to the time, the sub

and that was plot - as'Father Mathew would ` !
never have recommended,- but as they were .1

Lawyer" vs. Loafers.A Technical Question"
There is daection in the municipal code
of AlleghenyAparkof which read _ s, as fol
lows:. ."!It shall hereafter be unlawful for
any person to stand or loiter upon any
of the canal or footbridges of the city, or
onany otthe streets leading -to the:mune,
within twenty feet thereof, or to stand or
loiter 'around 'the Market House, except
during market hours; and then not in the
night time; or on any street of the city at
the,door of any, church or other place of
Publimaawambly:!..., - . . ,
For some time past the citizens of Alle
gheny have been annoyed by the loafers
and loungers; who hike up their 'quarters
on the of the POstoftice every evening
and occupy the same until long after
darkness has come os. The attention
of the Mayor has been called to
this annoYance and he has been requested .
:to put a stop to the practice. Now,as this
is the only section in the city code bearing 1
on this point, the queation is, does it strict
ly meet the demands in the present case?
The, pavement in front of the ..Postoffice
steps on either side is nearly forty -feet
wide, while the ordinance says• loitering
shall net belillowed within twenty feet of
the street, which puts the loafers in this
etwo,otataidic of its pale. True, the Wild. 7
ing is a _publics .structure, .but it is not • a
place of public assembly, (if we except the
loafers in question.), The ordinance `tua
dOubtedl, was meant by its' framers to
cover the loafing nuisance in the city,,but,
as it' reads' it is certainly a nice technical
point for the Mayor and the lawyers to de
cide whether under a strict interpretation
of it the - loafers are,.not t . elear „ from :;the
clutches of the law.

Grant and Peace, orltlair and Wart
In GeneiriF Grant's-letter-of 'acceptance,
the country has an assurance of law, order,
and peace, from a man Who has never vio
lated a pledge once given. - General Grant,
In his letter of acceptande, makes the most
unequivocal' pledge of peace. General
Blair, seeking, the nomination, and in his
speech accepting the nomination, threatens 2
war. , - •
Here is, perhaps, as 'Striking a contrast
as was ever presented between two candi
dates for the highest offices in the gift ot_the
people. -- • '
General Grtutt promises - to "administer all -
the laws in good faith,'With economy, and
with the view' giving peace, quiet, and
protection everywhere.' -
General. Blair:promiseeto "declare the Re- '
construction laws null and void," and to
compel the army to "disperse" he Southern
'State Governments. -'
General Grant declaree that he will "exe
cute the will of the peciple.". • •
General Blair declareslhat he will "com
pel the Senate (the representatives of the
people) to subniit."
General Grant proinisee "peace and uni
versal prosperity" through the quiet enforce-
ment of law. - • •
General BlaiipromiseS'anarchy, war, and
desOlation r by "trampling into the dust" the •
laws of Congress. - •
General 'Grant - fervently and honestly
says, "Let us havepeace:?t :•"!
General Blair declares;that he means to
have another_civil war:
General Grant sayB he ininsectad '-
the will of the people, and always will re
spect it. • •
General Blair declares that :he means to
be a dictator, to de'stroy State Governments,
trample the national lawii and State Con
stitutions into the dust, and' compel Con
gresa to submit.
Let the voters of the land choose between
these two. Let them choOse between peace
and war; betNieen economy and fresh ex
pense; between prosperipP and ruin; be, T. !
tween law and anarchy. -
THE OLD STORY of the Yankee who was
disgusted at finding„in a rare English con
servatory .that a much-prized "American_
Velvet Plant" was nothing but the common
road-side inullen, has just met its pendant.
in a French work on floriculture. In Eu
rope, as very widely here, there rages a ,
passion for plants with huge leaves, having
quaint and ornamental puterns of tracery .
running through them—phytiomanfa this
passion is sometimes called: The American •
:Agriculturist notes the fact' that in the above
mentioned French work the common
Westersi. plant known . as diosin Weed is re
commended as, durable for ornamental pnr
poses. But there is a lesson. here that we
might take advantage of, and instead of go-•
ing, abroad for rare and high-priced plants
we could often tiod,ampleFiritezial for greate:-.
beauty at home. --Burdooki - aad - fifty other
plentiful weediovould furnish really.hand
some decorative foliage around fountains,

maniacs delight to aptead broad leaves.'
