WE. PERCIIITE that a sensational effort is
to be made, in some quarters, to impute to

a wanton and atrocious barbarity in theie

absurd. The slain savages imustituted one
of the most lawless and blood-thirsty binds
on the Plains l Their hands were all stained,
with th e blood of White settlers and esti
rants murdered. Their ledges were adorn
ed with scores of scalps tern, under circum
stances the moat revolting, from the women
and children of our people. Thili Chief was
notoriously prominent ,in these outrages
from their ,commencement last year, and the

has received. The sympathy of these presses,

TH3 PEOPLE or INDIANA have recently
given a terrible proof of their district in the
purity and fidelity with which their laws are

'Seymour, in that State, who had made the
laws a mockery by their over long-con
tinned impunity, has just been completed
by the summary execution of the other ac
cothplices, 1314 by a mob in the New Al
bany Jail. Lynch law would be less inde
fensible, if it reached the actual root of the
difficalty in such cases. If such a bad in
stitution.must be perpetuated, there are those
who • , believe that it would come' nearer the
desired ends, if applied occasionally to the
corrupt officials who prostitute the law, as
well as to the rascals whom their corruptions
protect. Why not hang a bad judge or a
dishonest lawyer, once in a while, as well
as the criminals who are quite as good citi
zens as they ? In that way, the logic of
Judge Lynch would at least be consistent.

We specially regret, that a member sojudi
clous and enlightened as Mr. linroami, of
Ohio,—in whose national statesmanship the
entire Country has—learned to repose the
very highest -,,confldence--should object to
the bill that it concedes a privilege to Ken

_Beesaise the Senate bill perm itsthe erection

his State. Kr. Brxonsau seems to forget'
that the navigation interest ia altogether har
monious as to the freedom of that particular
atiTicfare from the.objections which have
been patent against all the other projected
bridges. The structure at Louiiville is ad
mitted, by those most interested, to be en-.
tirely unobjectipnable by reason of the local
peculiarities—and this can be said of none
of the other bridges proposed. All the un
friendly discrimination in the -, i se must be
attributed to natural causes, an . - k ‘ we don't
see how Mr. 13nwirsit can obviat . it, unless

THE Cuban itisurrection is en • eV. .the
of the planters, the o slave-trad
ers and thb importing merchants, and its
real purpose is to, maintain slaVery in that
island. The aristocracy of South Carolina,
in former days, reserved all powers to an
extremely limited olass, and degraded the
"poor whites" into a condition of dependent
slavery infinitely more abject and helpless
than the blacks ever. knew. In these partic
ularii, that oligarchy was modeled faithfully
upori the Cuban pattern, and this Cuban re
volt aims to protect arid perpetuate precisely
that state of things. - This policy is even
avowed in a proclamation before us, which
denounces the reforms proposed by the
Spanish Junta as only "a pretext to be fol
lowed by depriving us of a ' , greater portion
of that which we have gained by so much
toil." This means nothirig else but an ap
peal to the slave.holding' interest, although
the proclamation is profusely studded with
grandiloquent allusions to liberty and popu
lar sovereignty. It is evident that neither
submission to the decrees of the home gov
ernment nor annexation to the United States
will suit the designs of the insurgents. It
is only their insular independence which
can keep slavery alive. In the meantime,
the success of our own fiolicy of annexation
depends altogether upon that of Spain In
maintaining her hold upon her refractoiy
colony. When, if ever, she finds that Cuba
is to be - lost to her, our propositions will
then be.,consldered--and not before.

fair notice , of the designs of the President,
and, in view of the country's ,previeus ex

and the Bay of Sauna, members cannot
plead ignorance of this conspicuous fact—
that, under the technitial peculiarities which
mark the dividing lines of power and re
sponslbllity, in the initiation and-cOnsrun:
mation of these interruitional negotiations,
among the relPeetive &Pertinent" of our

light of our past experience, promptly-in
terpose at this moment a decisive protest
against'any further illustrations of a policy
with which Mr. Joitssms and Mr. SizwanD
have embassassed us quite enough alreadi.
The sense of Congress on this point should

REST ' e:yr lIILE.
Some Republican journals of Pennsyl
vania are counselling an, early meeting of
the State Convention to awnings candi
dates for Governor and Supreme Judge.
With all deference, we beg to suggest that
this is not for the best.
The most exciting Presidential armies
ever known in this country was brought to
a close oily a little more than a month ago.
So high a degree of political enthusiasm
could not possibly be protracted. The end
in view accomplished,' a period
. of: tranquil
ity and rest has set in; and this will be pro
found in exact 'proportion to the preceding
turmoil and strife. And this is well. Nature
alwaYs provias compensations, , and this
forrcii of repose is one of them. Let the
people enjoy it.
Besides the attempt to intrude a period of
fresh activity, before the requisite rest shall
be taken, will not only prove a failure, but
Produce detrimental consequences. It awns
to be . pretty well determined already in pop
ular estimation who the candidates will be.
There is no strife, calling forma early de
cision in order to abate asperities and avert
unfavorable complications. Hence, we
judge it to,be altogether wiser to defer , the
Convention to a day as near as practicable
to the point when the active work of the
canvass mist be commenced. We submit
these suggestions for the , consideration, of
the State Committee as well as for the judg
ment of our Republican contemporaries.
For our part, we want rest, and believe that
all the men who took an active part in the
recent - canvass are of the same mind.
ACCUSATION OF INTERNATIONAL
• By. treaty the United States stipulated to
pay Russia seven millions of dollars for the
- sovereignty' of Alaska. The whole sum
was appropriated by Congress. A draft
for five millions was reported as paid on
this account in London, and the inference
was started that'll° more Was paid or de
manded. Now, a Massachusetts editor,
who is a member of Congress, alleged that
two millions were retained by agreement of
functionaries of the two Governments, that
three hundred thousand dollars were divided
'among the representatives ,of certain Jour
'lids en. this side of the Atlantic, which are
named. He &scuds to particulars as to
how the money. , was drawn, and through
whom. What became of the other seven
teen hundred thousand dollars he does not
undertake to tell, leaving it to be inferred
that members of Congress and Cabinet of
ficers here, divided that sum- with Russian
These are grave statements, and cannot
be allowed to go uninvestigated. This ac
liming member, of Congress knows his duty,
which is to have the matter fully probed and
all the facts revealed. The members of the
State and Treasury Departments, whose
fidelity is thus impeached, owe it to them
selves to demand eftill sifting of the charges,
so far as they are incriminated. The tax
payers will want no more of Dir. Eswasn's
land contracts until they shall be assured
that in them lurks no scheme of peculation
and stealing.. •
If the member of, Congress who started
'these charges fails promptly to call , for an
inquiry, some other member ought to do so.
The matter must not be suffered to rest
where it is.
TIM Commercial has achieved a'-damag
ing distinction by the fury and coarseness
of its_assaults upon every public man in.
Pennsylvania who does not belong to its
meagre and powerless coterie. But its vi
tuperations are so incessant and unjustifi
able as to deprive them of all poier except
that of bringing its condictors into • dises
teem and contempt. Among those whO
have most recently been subjects of its irk.
discriminate wrath, is Mrs Srmox Cauxamc,
upon whose competency as a public servant
and fidelity to the Republican organization
it has cast unfounded aspersions.
Mr. CAXIMOI has been long in public life,
and early icon that established reputation
for trueness to his commitments which has
constantly kept his position :on all prom'.
nent questions beyond a doubt or suspicion.
So clear-sighted has he heen that in not one
of the critical emergencies of the
years has he been mistaken; as is evidenced
by his early and consistent advocacy of
Emancipation, of , Negro Regiments, ~ o f
Universal Suffrage, and - ImPeachment.
When a new question comes up, no man of
sense and information doubts where he will
be found. He is always in the advance
gnard of the party, following great . and
strongly defined principles iyherever they
lead. There is no Coriseriestism hina,
and no dallying either with traitors to the
party or with its open and traditional oppo
nents. When President joraisox entered
upon his great apostacy, Mr. Camanorr did
not follow and fawn upon, -promising co
operation in exchange for patronage. When
Mr: Cowax deserted the men by wham .
he was homed and promoted, Mr. CAME
scar-made an pilgrimeges to Greensburg to
propitiate his favor,. by-,:,commiridine his
treachery, so es to share in the emoluments
of which he Wee supposed to be the dispels
nor.. If our memory is, not, at Jault,
' , Commercial once accused Mr. Castariorr .ol
men , but when its principal , editor
was made a witness before Legislative bl.
'mitigating Committee he .was
to confess that he anew nothing of all he
had affirmed; 'but even the Commercial has
not been reckless enough to Charge Mr.
Castitnor with selling himself.
Take an instance outside of political com
binations. Mr. GEORGE W. CAISB has estab
lished a very high reputation in this city for
honesty, sagacity aid enterprise. He is
Preiddent of the Pittsburgh;:. Fort Wayne
and Chicago Railway Company. Occupy
ing that position, he is under the strongest
moral and legal obligations to seek primarily
the interests of the stockholderkwho con
fide in him. He would deserve the Peni
tentiary if he wilfully failed of duly execat
ing his high trust. A. few days ago it was
announced that he had entered inte an ar
rangement, in behalf of his company, with
two other important corporations, for mu
tual advantage. His stockholders are satis
fied; but the Conmacial denounces him in
almost unmeasured terms.
It so happens that , the details of the-ar
rangement referred to have not been made
public. We doubt IT the . Commercial has
such knowledge of what the three Compa
niee home done so to be able to give an in
telligible statement thereof., It is sufficient
for it to know that the arrangement em
braces the Pennsylvama i t pliroad Company
—a corporation in respec to which it is abso
lutely insane. Knowing this; it rushes to'
the conclusion that Mr. CASEI is a deceiver,
a falsifier, a consPiritor, and almost every
thing else that is reprehensible. u •

.FREE TRADE LYING.
The Chicago Tribune .of Saturday last,
"The Moorhead Tariff bill has its origin in .
Pittsburgh where a company of enterpris
ing capitalists have conceived the idea of
making gait out of a mineral called cryoUte,
which is imported from Greenland. This
company have secured from the King of
Denmark a monopoly of.the oryolite mines;
but, after digging the stuff and transport
ing by sea and land to Pittsburgh, and con
suming certain quantities of coal in ex
tracting the salt, they find that it don't
pay, even under a tariff of 160 pe`r cent. on
the latter article. In order to protect home
industry, (to-wit, that of the Greenlanders)
this tariff bill was invented by Moorhead.
To carry through an increased duty on salt,
and the other products of cryolite, it was
necessary to admit a band of thieves into
the ring, and promise them increased duties
' on other things. This is the history of the
Moorhead tariff. This country will look
with interest on the prpgress 9f the Cryo
lite bill through Congress."
"The Pittslurgh Balt Manufacturing Com
pany" is the' one referred to in the 'para
graph quoted. The works of the Company
are situated at Natrona, some twenty miles
up the Allegheny river from this. city. It
manufactures salt, as other companies and
individual operators do, from saline waters,
abounding in wells from the head of the
Ohio one hundred miles along the Alle
gheny. Salt is not made from ctyolite, and
- cannot be made from it, only one element of
salt, sods, existing therein.
This Company has a monopoly of cry°.
lite in this country, - being exclusively
authorized to bring It. hither by the Crown
of Denmark. From this articleis produced
1511 of vitriol, concentrated lye, soda, and a
number of other commodities.
From cryolite, also, flint glass and hot
pressed porcelain, the latter fully equal to
the celebrated goods of Dresden, are man
ufactured. This is a 'branch 'the Com
pany here is not engaged in, but, they fur
nish cryolite in reasonable terms to other
parties who do manufacture those goods,
rind are ready to furnish all other parties
who may desire on the same conditions.
The Company here is not asking, either
through Mr. MOORHEAD or any body else,.
an increase in the rate of import duties on
foreign articles corresponding to those man
factued-by them. So well satisfied is that
Company with its business, and especially
that portion of it depending , on the use
of cryolite, that it contemplites- building
another mammoth establishment, near Phil
adelphia, to supply the seaboard while the
immense concern here shall be left to sup.
ply the mein terraneantrade.
When the Tribune shall cease to dogma
tize and denounce; when it shall acquire a
respectable amount of knowledge of the
matters with which it presumes oracularly
to deal; and when it shall Team to use such
knowledge as it may 'possess with a decent
degree of honesty, it will elevate its reputa

IT is a month since the Rev, Mr. Bzucurat,
of Brooklyn, N. Y., invited every eminent
medical man, Dr. WILLARD PARKER, "to be
come a preacher of righteousness-by a wise
teaching of God's physical laws," and pro
posed to secure his presence for' three qr
four Sunday nights, "to talk to the working
men of Brooklyn on the matter of health,
of diet, drinking, tobacco, illicit pleasures
anything, everything, that has'a moral re
sult through physical obedience or disobe-
Acme to Divine-law."
Dr.. Parker accepted the invitation, and
stated his proposed topics as follows:
"I propose to take.up Anatomy and Phy
lology and point out therefrom the rul s
we should follow in order that we rn
have Health and Happiness. Those are t e
captions of the lectures proposed. I ho
they will be suMciently understood in the r

4. The consequences of violating the rules,

pant. You see I propose to speak of the
Anatomy and Physiology of Man, decl a re
point out, the laws of health and
them to be the laws of God, and:as binding
on man as the Decalogne."
The first of these lectures was delivered
at the church on Sunday last, to a crowded
audience, and its matter , was worthy of the
speaker's distinguished reputition. The

Miss Helen Western, the actress, died at
'Washington on the 11th. She was taken
ill at Pittiburgh, about five weeks ago, but ' ,
came on here to fill an engagement, but as j -
her arrival was so ill that on the first night
of her appearance she was compelled to be
removed from the stage. Subsequently she
recovered so as to play on Friday and 8at..1
urday of last week. This exertion caused a
relapse, and she was again confined to her
room, but on Wednesday, felt more cheer
ful and confident of early recovery. Yee
tardaY she was not so well, and the hotel
proprietor having per manent boarders, who
wanted her Pions, insisted on her being
moved out. Her agentl remonstrated, hat •
could not induce him to let her remain, and
she was carried out to another house.
From that moment she commenced to
sink, and on her doetor being sent for list
night, he pronounced her case hopeless.
She was about twenty.three years_ old, and
was a sister of Lucille Western,- both being
daughters of Mrs. English, of Boston, by a
former husband. Helen was born in New
York, and made her first appearance on the
boards as "Eva," in. Uncle Tom's Cabin, at
the Boston Museuni. Since then she has
played in England, Ireland, Scotland, South
America, and all through the United States.. '
Her only relatives now living are her
mother, Mrs. English, in Boston, and her
sister, Lucille, in California. Her remains
Were taken to Boston on Friday for inter
ment in Mount Auburn Cemetery.
Another report says: Kind hearted, cheer
ful in 'disposition, and easy to please, she
was a star, actress more popular with the
members of \ the profession than with either
tke critics or the general public. She
was twice married—ones to a lawyer of
Baltimore city, and afterwards to Mr., Herne,
a stock actor,
now, in California.'; From
both husbands she was separaled; from the
first by divorce, from the second by mutual
consent. In person Helim ‘ was - very bes.uti..
fel; of large proportions, dark eyed` and
fair skinned, with glossy black hair, and a
foot which, for size and symmetry, would
not have disgraced Titania. Though, deli
ing the war, both sisters made money, Helen
died anything but rich: and Lucille, now
in California, left here in indigent circum
stances, though in lees than five years she
earned and received froi various theatres
upwards i of two hundred th3usand dollars.
Her illness developed into congestion of the
bowels. She lingered in great suffering till
Friday morning, when she breathed her
last. The remains are attired in a pearl
colored silk, one of her stage
. dresses, and
present quite , a natural appearance.
Oa Catchlig Cold.
Catching cold is a common phrase for an
attack of catarrh, but it is a very incorrect
one. One year I suffered;so seveiely from
a series of "colds" that my attention was
drawn specially to them. I was then a lec
turer on medicine, and nearly even night
from five o'clock to six during the - winter'
months tu r n ont from a warm room
to, go through all weatliers; lecture for an
hour in a theatre heated by a stove and
lighted by gas, and then return again to my
suggery at home. When I felt a fresh cold
beginning, I tried in vain to account for it,
until I accidentally saw in Copeland's din.
tionary that the most fertile cause of a cold
was coming from a moist cold air to a hot
and dry room. This at once explained to
me the reason of my frequent sufferings,
for I had invariablygone into my hot room
straight from the cold. I, of course, soon
changed my habit. dawdled in the hall
while taking off my treat coat, perambnlat
ed the rooms which had no" fire in them,
went uR and down stain, and the like, ere
I went into my study, whose temperature
was always reduced. Since then I agree
with a friend, who says "that a cold comes
from catching hot;" and I am disposed to
think that there is a strong analogy between
a chilblain' on a.child's toes and cold in' a
person's nose, thioat and lungs.--ifedses/
