From a statement prepared by the First
A4isistanC postmaster General, it appears
that ere were 48,221 post-offices in the
United States on June 30, 1882. This is an
increase of of 1710 over June 30; 1881.
The sales of stamps, stamped envelopes
and "postal cards for, the quarter ended
March 31, 1882, amounted to $10,487,.-
329 44. This amount represents an in-
crease of sales $350,876 80 over those of
the quarter ended December 31, 1882, and
' of $1,434,868 . 83 (or 15 8-10 per cent.) over
the sales for the quarter ended March 3

A misunderstanding has arisen between
Dia. Hartigan, Sowers and Lamb, who per

It is certainly to be hoped that the com
ing crops of the present season will fulfil
the expectations that have already' been
authorized by published accounts, which
promise that they will, be largely ahead of
those of last year, as the country now
stands very much - in need of food crops to .
restore the export trade to its former pro- I
portions, and thereby increase the Wine
of trade in our favor.
According to the decision of a New York
Court in special termaielivered recently, a
man who insures his life for the benefit Of
his wife and children cannot thereafter
legally surrender his policy to the company
during the life time of any of the intended
beneficiaries without their consent given
,after coming of age. In other words, the
insurance must be maintained as a protec
tion to the wife and children until they are
legally entitled to waive their rights.
President Arthur delights to go a fishing.
-"There is nothing that can so calm a troubled
brain and put a man in "good - humor with
iimself and the rest of mankind as a fish
ing excursion, and the President does w e ell
to occasionally shake the, politiami, kid
with a'few ehoice spirits seek some segues
tern nook where, with goOd fly-bate,
he can tempt the little shiners to come up
from the deep and make themselves ready
for, the Presidential palate.
It is said that a New York financier is
anxious to place )200,000,000 of govern-
Ment interest bearing bonds at two per
cent. This is below the present received
ideas of interest, but if we can have our
loan reduced at that rate it will be the bet
ter for all concerned. Just now there is .
lots of capital seeking investment that the
transitory figures of real estate do not war
rant, and the uncertainty of mining and
railroad stocks deter investors. If ire can
place our loan at two per cent. safely:, there'
is just so much gained.
Marriott Brosius, the Republican candi
date for Congressman-at-Large; has written
a letter of acceptance to the Hon. David
Taggart, PerManent President of the State
Convention. In it he remarks that enter
taining the belief that a disposition to pre
serve and a desire to improve the party,
accompanied by, every just exertion to
those ends, constitute the true standard of
Republican fealty, and
. recognizing. in the
. platform of the party the highest code of
ethics ever promulgated by any political or
.'ganization, within his knowledge, he cheei.;
fully and promptly 'pledges his best efforts,
if elected to 'Congress, to co-operate in
making the administration of the party
Conform, in every particular, to the princi

Says the Philadelphia North American:
"The public will no doubt learn with Bur
, -prise, from the testimony given before the
committee which is inquiring htto the opera
tions of the whisky lobby, that the whisky
business is in a bad way. Most people have
an idea that whisky is a. commodity which
is always in demand, and that the men who
are engaged in its manufacture are coining
money all the time. This, , however, ap
pears to be a fallacy, for.certainly a !aud
t:teas cannot be very prosperous when it is
thought necessary to spend three . qt l uir6irs
of a million dollars in premiums to (liiftillers
for production and for expbrting
their products at a loss. Either thed,iimand
for whisky must have fallen off in rjither a
surprising manner, or the original profits

With the Nort/i American we think it' is
not much use passing laws against polygamy
and appointing commissions to consiller how
those laws can be carried out while this in
tinez of perverts continues. It is by this
importation of ignorance
,and deluded peo
ple from abroad that Mormonism, which
otherwise would die of dry rot, Is nourished
and sustained. Thew misguided people
come over here with the Unconcealed inten
tion of engaging in unlawful pzuctices, and
of allying themselves with an illegal organi
sation. , their landing under such circum
stances ought not to' be permitted, and' the
suppression of this!tratile would do more to
root out Morznonism than can be accom

According (9 a current re pen t lays the
North Amer* Mr. I.- Bait tuft , Davis,
who has just caused nattieation in political
eiselei by resigning the' meisMittli
**ls to succeed Me. Loivell : Inl ;American
Minister to Great Britain. If any *lngo
is to be Made in that direction, the appoint
ment suggested would be an exCelkut one.
Mr. Davis balsa a long and extensive ex
perience as a diplomatist,
, and is thoroughly
Conversant with European and internal
politics, besides being a L inari of great
natural ability and a gentleman of wide
and generous:culture. Mr. Lowell has
filled the position in a graceful, dignified
manner, and has w his idTablknionners
and his capacity for af `ter-dinner :speaking
succeeded in staking buns lf. very popular;
but after all Mr. Lowell is a man of letters,
and diplomacy is a profession' by itself,' to
which one needs to be trained.
While the growth and matur ity of the
grain crops have been watched with so
much interest in the North, the attention - of
Southern people has been given.: to the cot
ton.. The time has gone by when any one
presumes to declare, in the and* that were
once ,so familiar, before • the 'War, that
"Cotton is ding," but .there is no
doubt and no denial of . ita enormous
importance to the counts.y . as one of its
greatest products both for borne use and for
export. In the list of our sales to foreign
countries ifstanda among the Wrest; items.
So far, the word as to the progress of the
crop is fairly good, and on WednesdaY
telegram from Peterburg, Virginia, an- ,
nounced that the firit bloom ; ;of cotton, ;
shownin the market this par, lied, arrived .
there. It came from a farm! in Nor*
Carolinst. The demetch adds that the
dicaticnur are that with seasonable weather
the crop,will be larger than last' year.
.Speaking of the fact that a number of Mr.
Pattison's clerk's aided in his nomination,
the LlLT:master New Era says: "When we
consider that Mr. Pattison is held up as a
medel of a Domocratic reformer, we cannot
btit “nclude that the.reform he champions
lea , a delusion and a snare. He
don't seem to need the odds from the most
adroit boss now in the tpolitical field."
Ce+enting upon the same toren the West
Ckester Record say's: "If the New Era
would go a little deeper itt its Audio; of Mr.
Pattison it would find itself more and more
convinced that the young man's pretensions
in the reform line are shams. It will
find that lie has for party advantage advo
cated distortion of the truth and justice
and 'on one occasion wanted a State official
to do a dishonest trick because it would
.nefit the Democratic party. When the .
official honestly did his official 'duty, lifr. -
Pattison denounced him in vigorous terms
because ; he had had a; chance to put a Re
publican in a false light before the public
and didn't do it." •
'Says the Philadelphia North American:
"The assassin's, brain has proved to be as
most people reasonably expected, a perfect- .
ly average arrangement. I ft would have
been strange indeed had the minutest ex
arninntion revealed any lack of power or
any indiCation of insanity. Just so surely
as it takes:a clever man to make a fool—in
the sense that a circus clown is a fool—it

RETROSPECTIVE and .10 . APECTJTE
The causes out of which have sprung
the present pronounced division in the.
Republican party of Pennsylvania,
date as far back as the . Cincinnati
National. Convention of 1876. There,
under the lead of Senator J. D. Cam-
eron, an attempt was , made s under the
pretended obligation of the unit rule
forced through the State Conyention at
Harrisburg, to transfer the 'delegation
at Cincinnati bodily to the 'Support of
Hayes. He succeeded in ttansferring
a sufficielt number to defeat the choice
of the Repnblicans of the State. Con-
tinning the same policy of personal die
tation, the example of 1676, was re
peated at Harrisburg and Chicago in
1880, in an attempt to force= the nomi•
nation of General Grant. , The scheme
of the bosses was again so fa; success-
ful as to defeat the decided I preference
of the Republicans of the State, though
the result fortunately was n triumph
over bossism, and the assertion of the
prevailing spirit of opposition .to that
element by the representatives of the
people in that memorable Convention.
The delegates, on this 'occasion, from
our own district," disregarded the dic
tation of the bosses; though the , force
of machine power was sternly krought
to bear upon them, and represented,l
honestly, earnestly, and forcibly, the
popular wiA of their constituents. Had
they taken the opposite cOurie i they
would have been visited with the most
decided political conclemnatiori. To
their action on that occasion may' be
attributed, more than. to 'any , other
cause; the solidity of the Retiublican
forces of the. 15th COngreasional dis
trict at the present time in the midst of
the perils that menace the - party. Yet
later, disregarding the lessons - taught
them by the condemnation of "their
action at Cincinnati Chioago, the ,
same coterie of party bossesliinder, the
command of the grand primate, Senator
Cameron, issued their. Orders and an !
complished the defeat of. Hon. 6, A.
r 6row, whOwas the decided' choice of
the Republicans of thg . State 'fOr Uni
ted States Senator: in the , winter of
1881. Still later, not satisfied -with
the havoc they had mlie; when -the
State Convention met in the summer
of 1881 to nominate a State. ticket,
Hon. William T. Davies, Who up .to,
within two weeks Of the contention,l
had a clear field and was the: recog
nized; decided choice of the Republi
cans, of the State for State Treasurer,
was' defeated through the Orders of the
bosses by machine metho l ds,l, because of
his independent action on th'e question ,
of baited States Senator. The consa- '

the voting masses of the party, and

"Regulars," or whetherthey be "Inde
pendents." What the people ask is a
Republican ticket, divested of distine•
tive or opprobrious names, and they
will achieve for it a triumphant victory
Ss of yore.
Suinmarized, the causes that have
Culminated in the -present disturbed
condition' ()Mho party in the State, are
these: Had the bosses respected the
will of the Republicans of - the State at
Cincinnati, in 1870, and again at Chi
cago in 1880, and lad they listened' to
the popOlar voice in the election of a
United States Ser.:ator at 'Harrisburg
in the winter of 1881 1 and finally, bad
they respected the 'popular sentiment
of the party in the nomination of State
Treasurer last year, the party would
be in harmony` mow.: _ Let them view
the destruction their hands hilve
wrought and learn wisdom.
If the Republicans are divided on the
question of tho fall election, which is con
ceded, sayi the Delaware Republican, the
i are equally so. A portion of
the latter, and perhaps a majority, cling to
" the traditions of the fathers of the party,"
who, if alive now, would reject their de
generate sops. They , det,,not desire to be
vaccinated with the , principles of reform,
audience distrust s their nominee for Gov
ernor.- There is no doubt dint a large
number of them will, as in times past,
throw over their chances of success and
vote for Stewart, the Independent candi
dates In the'meantime there are prosped
the signs of Republicans uniting. Let it
be perfected, if possible, wise counsel sway,
and a Republican tritneph is'assured. In a
political campaign . there are two things to
be Considered : First, the • relative strength
of the - one side, and next 'the weakness of
the enemy. So far as known the nomina
tion of Fattison does not meet the wishes of
the spoils Democracy, and many of Ahem
would be glad to see him -beaten. There
are soldiers of fortune in the Democratic
ranks who Will fight for any sideethat pays,
and would eagerly enlist either in the cause
of Beaver or Stewart, 'provided it -- was to
their advantage. ' So far as theirf own
party triumph' is conceined,. that is but p
secondary consideration. To circumvent
this element, greater, 0 it is, than many
conceived, it is necessari..to join the R4pub
lican phalanx in solid opposition. Combined
they pill achieve a vicibry, disintegrated
theyTwe liable to defeat. It is some months
before election, and, in the meantime, there
is ample . time to correct past mistakes.
The ques tion of import now' is, Can it, and
will it, be done.
The case of Senator Roberts; of Crailord
county, charged with bribery in' procuring
his election to the Legislature and perjury
in taking the oath, was heard in Harrisburg
Thursday. Two witne4s were produced
On the part of the prosecupon, buth of whom
testified that they hadTiot received any
money from Hr. Hobe" to be used for
election purposes, and knew nothing that
would tend to substantiate the charge of
bribery. There being no other witnesses
present; and the prosecuter refused to
make affiadavit that he could secure addi
tional testimony, the case was dismissed.
If the Government can, as alleged, place
their loan at two per cent. 'interest, the bill
now in , the Senate - , which has been passed
,Rouse, should Ve approired. The
Thimocrats may say 'just' what they please .

When after twenty yeara of Onanciering

must be acknowledged that they have made
the most of their eilltial education.
The Republican Party has been. falsely
accused Of pursuing a policy hostile . to agril
culture ande:elusively favorable to indus
trial pursuits. In the face of this accusa
tion, •American agriculture has made more .
progress in all , respects under. Republican
auspices since 1870 than its most *nuke

thisis that the-farmers' Inarkets'at home

It is made fully apparent tluit the , party
achieved its majority in both the 43rd and
44th Congress in the Mouse, by' the perpe
tration of the most shameless and disgrace
ful frauds ever invented, and the Republi
cans overawed by men holding seats to
which they were not ,elected, were power
less to 'expose the wrong.; The Elections
Committee during the present session his
devoted itself to the. eiposition of these
wrongs under the able chrinipionship.of the
chairman, Mr. Calkins, Of Indiana. Their
method of stuffing Whit-boxes with tissue
ballots, cut • narrower, end folded Vithin
the regular tickets so that; they could not 'be
obser,ved, bas been' fully exposed. Their
method was to throw out and destroy Re
inbliCan &arts, and count for the Demo
cratic candidates an 'equal number of the
tissue or fraudulent votes, and. in this way
they achieved their,Der - nocmtic l Majority in
the Honse in the 43rd and 44th` Congresses
Iv falsely returning , men not elected, and
then they came in and shouted loudly for
and sent scores of Investigating committees
roaming over the country in search of Reliub;
lican rascality. In nearly every case where
they succeeded in a lead, as in the
case of-their investigation of John I. Daien
port in New York, it' led straight into the
DemOcratic camp,. and then nothing more
was heard of it.
The. country, before the next election,
wilt bt3 made fully aware of theeenception
and hostory of all these
. frairds, 'awl how
ever much Repriblicans may, complain of
bossism and unfairness in , their party or
ganiiation, they will never, with such
ghastly exposures in fail view, support the
election of a Democrat for any office. '
When the record of the present session is

TE.A..&ND COPY TOL VS. WDDIKEY.
When the bill to reduce internal taxation
was pending in the !Reuse; the Democrats
-fought vigorously and persiStently, though
unsuccessfully, to reduce the tax on whis
key, but when Judge Kellek a few days
since -reported from . the Ways and Means
'ttee, a bill to ;take off tbe duties on
tea an. coffee, the Democrats in a body
voted*gainst it. They . wouldgive every
body' free whiskey but insist on taxing -the
poor man's tea and coffee: The Republicans,
holding that the best way to make the
Democrats pay their share of the national
debt was to keep the tax on whiskey • voted
against any reduction, but voted to take
off the duty on tea and coffee. •
If a moral, can be adduced in referonee
to the lack of 'parental . guidance, where
girls just approaching — womenhatid are left
by their mothers 'to their *min" fate, it is
furnished in the.,N,:ase of Jennie Cramefr, of
New Haven, who was found dead on the
beach there. It is not- necessary to rem
pitulate the evidence given on the trial of
those who were alleged to have had a hand
in her death,' but their connection with her
supposed deinoraliAtion was establiihed,
and they escaped the penalty only' because
their position in society did not ,tillo* the
jury to consider them guilty. The victim,
a beautiful, but silly girl, no doubt supposed
that James /Weir would marry her, but he
did not. The result has been too often
published to need repetition.. If there is one ,
single point in which Americans aryl defi
cient, it is in the latitude of action they al
low to their children. Boys and. girls in
this country, from the age of fifteen; are
too often allowed to act as their foolish im
agings prompt, and the result is, in many
instrinces, both sorrowful and disgraceful to
their parents, who are either too buisy or
too idle and indifferent to attempt either to
guide or control them. As long as such is
the, case, yelling- men and women will; per
force, be led astray:
Three hundred and sixty-nine, soldiers'
orphans will be discharged from the various
schools in the State this year, havhig ni7
tallied the age of sixteen years, and the
mperintenderd of the depart*ent has pre
pared a list of the scholars,' arriniged by
schools, to which be has added when each
child will be, discharged.. Copies of this
will be sent to each Post of -the Grand
Army of • the - Republic, and to numerous
soldier's and citizens, the object being to in
(crest as many possible in obtaining
holing land, employment for the orphens.

who wanted to be independent and have a

THE POST OpFICE i)EPAHTMENT.
• Animal:os, July
Assistant[ Postmaster-General Hazen
has completed a statement of the issues .
to postmasters by his office of postage
stamps, stamped env elopes and postal
e.ards !or the fiscal year - ended' June
30,'1482. The total number issued
was 1,740,571,038.piece5, of an - aggie.; .
gate value of V 0,977,952,41. 'Thii is
an increase over the issue Tor the Preced-•
ing fiscal year of ‘M0,9.59,476 pieces, or .
15.7 per cent, equal in value to $6,359.,'
517.51. The total cost of furnishing
these articles was $875,830.75,0r an
increase over the preceding fiscal ;year
of only $19,288.90, or 2,1 per cent,al
though the increase in the nurnbet-of
articles furnished Wa4 15.7 per seta.
The appropriation, for supplying
'these articles amounted to $1,036,000,
of which $875,830.75 was expended,
leaving an unexpended balance of $l6O,
163."26 or 15.4 per cent of the appro
priations. Over One billion three-cent
stamps a me nd -three: hiindred and 'fifty
million postal cards ':Were sold tiring
the past year. As: a result of these
figures Abe departmental officials feel
warranted : in asserting that, when the
final ' statement of the receipts and
.expenditures 'for the year has been
;completed it will be found that the
postal service, was self-sustaining. Of
"a 'deficiency appropriation of $7.2,152, 4 :258,
Made by / Congress last year to meet
the expected deficiency' in the postal
revenues; not one cent has been draWn
from the . treasury. This is the .first
year since 1851 in which the receipts
of. the Post Office Department have
balanced the expenditures, with the
exception 'of oM?.. year during the War

The report of_Dr. Lanibnf the post

tion was made - an.hour and a half 'after

appearance of the body, including' the
statements . that the neck was not
fractured or dislocated atel th:o there',
was found a small White 'scar, Confined
to the scalp, midway between the top
of the left ear and the median:line of
the head, the Report dm.ribei the, con•
dition of the skull and brain minutely.
'The right varetal bone was' slightly
flattened, but in thickness •the ekull
'presented nothing remarkable: - The
description of the brain is accompanied
by an engraving, a copy of a Photograph
taken four hours after ,death.. The,
brain was 'firm, and weighed forty-nine
and a half ounces. It was slightly
flattened in the region correspondinglo
the flattening of the paretal bone.
a section of the `cerebrum there was
an appearance as of slight thinning of
the gray cortex. - The description, of
the fissures is ;very minute. The heart
weighecft,ten and three-fourth ounces
and the /spleen which was lobulated
and enlarged, eighteen ounces.. Corn-'
meriting on ,the report the Medical
News says editorially that those who
expected to demonstrate the assassin's
criminal irresponsibility by the changes
in, his brain will have a-rather difficult
Walt if they expected to find deviations
from, the normal type of brain structure
They are certainly . disappointed.
The deviationi mentioned in the, report
have absolutely no signification, from
the point of view of moral derangement.
It may be affirmed of Guam's brain
that it presented as little evidence of
pathological change as_ the brain
of any one of his age dying of some
other than cerebral disease. What
may be iAisclosed on ..mieroseopical
investigation, which is yet to be male,
remains to lie seen.
