The question o furnishing an adequate

habitants of this city will come up for

to be held on Mo day next. This is not

good deal of m ney, but likewise the
comfort and heal, b. of a large find rapidly

a luxury to be d
t spenssd with when it can
be obtained. I is a i necessity for which
too much canna be paid, provided a less
price will not oliftain it.
While the tax -payers want an abund
ant supply of good water, and are willing
to pay any reaionable sum for it, they are
sure to be restive if experiments shallibe
undertaken that are not sanctioned by
men who hay bad ample experience in
the matter o water,supply, and have
I ' special, siienti c attainments sufficient to
I"give the weig t of authority to their sug

Nor is it f so much consequence to
have this que tion disposed of at once or
soon, as to ye it fully considered under
te.l the aspein which it is presented,
so that the decision,"when made, shall
prove to be oroughly sound. The va

The telegraph reports thnt the sympa
thies of Admiral Hoff, commanding our
Gulf-squadron, are witluthe Cuban i insttr ,
gents. It would be safe to assutne that
the feelings of the men who are at the
head of national. affaira at Washington
ton in, the same direction. Rebels are
'nearly always poPular with everybody
'except those against whom -they rise in
arms. When the Southern States revolt
ed their cause was popular almost all over
Europe. If good wishes from that quar
ter could have availed, - the rebellion,
would have proved successful.
Some thinkers maintain 'that this
marked and universal sympathy with re
bellion, is only a vague and unconscious
protest against the evils which necessarily
inhere in all Governments devised and
conducted by fallible human beings.
Other thinkers contend that this sympa.
thy is only the expression of a natural de
light which most people feel at seeing
their fellows involved in trouble.
Whether one or the other of these
classes of thinkers, or neither, has
the fact with them, we will not
discuss. Certain it is that the
advocates of popular government al
ways rejoice whenever a monarchy en
counters a serious revolt. Ihnthe case
under consideration, there are peculiar
reasons why the people of this country
should wish well to the Cuban insur
rection. Spain has notoriously governed
Cuba about as badly as it could. Indeed,
it is a perversion of terms to call Spanish
rule in Spain a government. It has been,
rather, organized robbery.
But the United States, during the late
rebellion within its own borders, set up
some principles of international law, and
claimed damages from Great Britain under
them, which stand in the way of its action
in behalf of the Cuban insurgents. Not
prepared to relinqUish its claims upon
England for the Alabama spoliations, and
not being able to bring the controversy
in relation thereto to a conclusion, it is
constrained to remain passive. How
long this will last it is not easy to per
ceive. Recent advices indicate that it
may be extendedso as to make the case
of the Cuban rebels altogether hopeless.
That mining is an employment which
subjects all persons engaged therein to
special hazards, is abundantly manifest,
particularly to residents of mineral dis
tricts. Science has disclosed various in
strumentalities by which the dangers can
be lessened, if not entirely avoided; but
the cupidity of proprietors, or the selfish
demand of the mass of coal consumers
for cheap fuel, or both of these causes
combined, has led to the avoidance of the
additional expense which the use of these
instrumentalities r.ecessarily entails. Just
now there is a general clamor for the
highest possible degree of safety in mines.
But the cheerful concession of such in
creased prices for coal as would enable
the proprietors to meet the heavy costs of
the security, we fail to discover. The
fact seems to be assumed that these costs
can be defrayed without seriously impair
ing current profits, or, at least, without
reducing profits below a fair proportion.
We apprehend that the balance sheets of
proprietors may conduce to a different
Thefact can neither be denied nor con
cealed that the wages of labor almostuai
formly bear a definite and just proportion'
to the hazards entailed by different/em
ployments. In point of fact, miners are
now receiving, and have been for a
number of / years past, high/rates of re•
numeration—ngruly or quite double the
average of skilled wortrien pursuing vo
cations above groynd. Whether this
higher average.o/f/compensation is actu
ally sufficient/to cover the greater risks
run, we need not here stop to consider.
All we desire in this connection is to call
attention to the obvious fact that if work
lit mines shall be reduced, by the applica
tion of approved scientific means, to the
average chances of casualtiez which pre
vall•in other labor, the wages of miners
will not long remain above those of other
toilers. In the very nature of the case,
this must be so.
Some powder-makers pay a certain rate
of wages, stipulating to maintain the
wives and children of such of the work
men as may be disabled or killed by ex.
plosions. In sten cesare reported in which
the proprietors of-a•mill support twohun
dred such persons. In these instances,
the wageti are made enough less to liar
rant the proprietors in taking the chances
of damage likely to be inflicted on the
workmen. It does not matter how many
times this problem may be turned round,
the final result will be the same;
proprietors must directly incur the
reducing the risks incident to - the busi
ness in which they are engaged, or the
workmen must be indemnified' by aug
mented wages. In either event, the con
sumers of the product' will haye to pay
higher rates for so much of it as they
have respectively occasion for.
If it shall turn out upon a careful
scrutiny, that miners are not now paid
larger wages than most other classes of
workmen, it may be taken for granted
that on the general introduction, either
through the force of law or of public,
opinion, or the demand of the miners'
themseivesof new and costly means of
additional security in the mines, the
consumers of:coal will have to submit to
a penruumnt average increase in price.
Nor ought this to be objected to; and if
objection &odd be idled, it would be of
so avail. Whituver Wade to isoretuie tbe ,
cod of producing Aqi, tle/ljuring sir
commodity is sure to augment the price
that must be paid for it.
We commented, 5 few days ago, upon
the effort made last spring to' secure the
enactment of a proper law for reducing
the hazards of mining, and upon the
causes of the failure of that effort. Le
tts" add a few additional words. All the
anthracite counties are "largely Demo•
craft, as are also most of the .bituminous
in which mining is prosecuted. on a lib
eral scale. This has been so constantly
since the beginning of the mineral devel
opmenta. By comity among the mem
bers of the two Houses of the General As
sembly, legislation to meet local wants
has always been left to the representatives
of the districts specially interested. By
far the greater part of the miners are
Democrats. The mining counties are
Democratic in consequence of their votes
mainly. Why have the Democratic lead
ers whom they have promoted year after
year'to places of honor and influence sys
tematically neglected their welfare in
this important matter ? Nay, why have
they opposed as often as an attempt has
been made to secure a proper legal rem
edy for the evils endured ? We do not
like to present the cuss under this aspect,
because it is one of very high gen
eral concernment; but there seems to be
no other way of doing fall justice in the
The danger now is that legislation may
be precipitated under excitement and
without duly calling up the material cir
cumstances which ought to be taken
into consideration. A well balanced stat
ute is required; one that shall
compel the proprietors, under stringent
penalties, to adopt and effectively main
tain all means of safety which have been
found of real value, and which shall
sharply punish miners who shall interfere,
under any pretext whatever, with the
constant and vigorous movements of this
machinery, no matter what it may be.
The bill that passed the House, and failed
'hi the Senate, last spring, is said to con
tain suitable provisions. Possibly it em,
bodies all that is needful; but upon mature
reilection.we incline to the opinion that
it stands in need of revision to adapt it to
all the contingencies that are liable, to
If the men who may- be elected to the
Legislature from the mining counties will
give this subject their attention,- - tvill
inspect personally as many of the mines
as they well can,—and will consult . fully
with both proprietors, engineers and
miners, they will bring to the task of
framing a proper law a good deal of defi
nite and valuable knowledge. They will
certainly understand the evils to be cured
in all their ramifications, and be able to
devise remedies that shall thoroughly
meet the necessity. without damaging in
terests that are of incalculable conse
quenge to the State and the whole cuuntry.
But the public may as well understand
first as last that the mining corporations
and individual proprietors, engaged in
the ,traffic for the full peylod of thirty
years past, have not gained much over
aft average profit of ten / per cent. on their
investments. Some companies and indi
viduals who dipped in about 1862, have
made more, but if they shall stay in for a
considerable time longer, their average
prgtitazwill be greatly reduced from the
points at which' they now stand. The in
ference from these facts is obvious. The
,adoption of all the means of safety in
mines which have been suggested by the
newspapers would at least double
suggestions are known by all practical
men, proprietors, engineers and miners,
to have no merit in them, and to have
proceeded from utter ignorance of the
points of danger to be guarded against.
That the next Legislature will enact a
general law for the regulation of
mining, is now certain. It is al
together desirable that this law
shall be molded under the influence
of reason and knowledge nab& th
excitement and prejudice.,
When il
take effect the profits of proprieters, the
wages of miners, and the price consumers
will have to pay for coal will be adjusted
by those commercial laws, which, in the
long run, prove superior to all combina
tions to put up or put down rates. It
will not be marvelous, if many persons
who now clamor. loudly tor the introduc
tion and maintenance of the most costly
means of safety in mines, shall clamor,
some little time hence, with equal energy
against the increased price of coal which
the employment of those very instrument
atives may possibly render inevitable.

TUE STORM which NITEI. Stowe has
raised by her recent article on Lord
Byron, in the At/antic, is probably alto
gether without a precedent in b
history; but like other storms of human
origin there has been a great deal of mis
placed bluster and unjust fury. That
Mrs. Stowe's article w4s unnecessary
arid . in bad taste we, think none will
deny, and any writer isjustifled in saying
so, or even in doubting the reliability of
Mrs. Stowe's authority ; but many, not
content with this have assailed her person
al character, have accused her of pander
ing to the depraved tastes of the age and of
writing the article in order to gain a
little cheap notoriety. To say this of
Mrs. Stowe, is simply to proclaim one's
self an ignoramus. The woman who
has given her energies to the promotion
of great reforms, and whose name has
rung through the world in every lan
guage louder and oftener than that of any
other living woman, wears an armor
from which such weapons will turn
against their users. Much as we flay
regret the publication of such an article
from such a pen, we must believe that
the intentions of the anth oress were
good and her sincerity unimpeacitable.
Ig Loognto over the daily press of thi
period one constantly encounters gems
of humor or wit which would do credit
to the reputation of a Hood or a Jerrold.
The reason of this is that most news
papers boil down a great deal of their
matter into short paragraphs now, and,
as everybody knows, brevity is the soul
of wit. Every one of at least twenty
papers gets off at least one good thing a
month, at least one thing that, when we
read it, causes us to be as suddenly and
irresistibly tickled as if . we had just
snuffed a charge of pepper up our most
sensitive nostril. These paragraphs, the
successful ones of Course, might be
gleaned and harvested and by and by
brought out in a book, which, though
not altogether a fresh crop, would, we
are sure, quite supercede the ancient
Joe Milleriams and cut and dried puns
which appear about once every 'ilve years
in new editions. These gems, which are
being hilt every day , are, maniof them,
we feel sure, much better than those old
ones were when they were new.

EVERY Republican will appreciate the

GEN. R. C. Cox, of Liberty, is an rtn
dependent candidate for Treasurer of Ti

for nomination at the Republican nomi
nating convention but failed to receive
the sanction of that body. If a man is
especially conceited, such a failure is
almost sure to bring him out as an inde
pendent candidate, and the election which
follows almost invariably takes the con-
ceit out of him altogether.
IT is asserted on the authority of Wm.
F. Smith, of Philadelphia, that Asa
Packer, who has claimed residence in that
city since 1864, has only paid one income
tax in all that time, amounting to about
$32 50—beside a tax of $8 90 on watches
and silver plate, which would be $4l 40
in all. This statement is worth inquir
ing into on the part of the revenue officials
of Carbon and Philadelphia. If Mr.
Packer has really shirked the payment of
his nationalss well as State, borough and
county taxes, by shifting his residence,
Is proper that the public should be off t
cially informed of the fact.
Tun Philadelphia Ledger speaks of Bill
McMultin, leader of the copperhead
roughs in that city, who threatens blond

enforced, as follows:

is anything but idle vaporing in his

hibiting their courage in as reckless and
questionable ways. His 'crowds' would
be outnumbered a hundred to one.
There has been a great deal too much of
this sort of thing, and it is time that all

be made to feel that there is no decent

One of the truest and most suggestive ideas
can be obtained from the caption at - the head
of this art.cle; for of all diseases which impair
human health and tbotten human life, none are
more prevalent than those which affect the lungs
and pulmonary tissues. V'llLtherwe regard lung
diseases in the light of a merely slight cough,
which is but the fore-runner of a more serious
malady. or as a deep lesion corroding and dis
solving the pulmonary structure, it is always
pregnant with evil and foreboding disaster.
In no class of maladies should the hysician or
the friends and family of the patient be more,
seriously forewarned than in those of the lungs,
for it is in them that early and efficient treat
ment is most desirable, and it is then that danger
can be warded off and a cure effected. In DR.
