The District of '1 Columbia is the most

many deaths have been caused since the
Fourth of July by the explosion of ' "toy
pistols." 'The Philadelphia Ledger, 1 a few
days ago, contained allusion o no.less than
nine such cases in different parts of the
country, and the Chicago Journal; of
Saturday says that in that' city the list of
deaths from this cause since' July 4th, ac
tually reaches a total. of 'twenty. In the
whole country it thinks there have been
not less than a hundred such deaths. .The
immediate cause' is usu4lly lock-jaw, and
the explanation seems WI be that these pis

ing fulminate of mereuri, which if carried
into a wound by the busting of the pistol

There is evidently a ppwing sentimt;
among the southern people in favor of, . C i
protective tariff. It was afrnestly supiki
ed in the the platform adopted at the recent
convention- of North Carolina kepublicans,
and in Virginia the _feeling is running so
strongly in the same direction that the
Readjasters propose to' take the matter up
'and give it a permanent place in their pro
gramme. These indieations.f the drift of
public opinion are the more gratifying and
significant because the free traders have
always been Accustomed to regard the
south as their impregnable stronghold. But
since the southerners i ceased to devote
themselves exclusively to apiculture and
began to turn their attention to the manu
facturing industries, they have - undergone
a salutary and perfectly intelligible ' change
of heart. 11

_the twenty-six 1 years
from July-1,! 1856 , to JulY 1, 1882. Up to

to $58,864,402.01, and five ; years leer, or
four months. oiler his retirement, it had
grown to $86.718;660,80. The-war came,

And this is the epitaph we i :be on its
Some wen predict a financial crisis like
those of 1837; 1857, and -1873, but we fail=
to see evidence that would lend us to such
conclusions. Granting, however, for the
sake of argument , that there is at present
likewise a great speculation in stock's and
merchandise, such as preceded the disasters
of 1837, 18.57, and 1873, it would not of it
self be enough in our opinion to produce the
results witnessed in those years. Unless
general mutual credit - and borrowing ac
companies speculation collapse will cause
injury to none but those immediately con
cerned. Nor does the excess of imports
over exporin itself seem to us to be an in
dication of danger. Itqaay be I with this
country, asst is with Great Britain, a proof
that the world owes it more than it owes
the world, and that it is only getting back
what belongs to it. Bad crops a re indeed
to be feared as likely to diminish the means
of consumers, and check trade ; tut there
is no reason as yet to fear this c~jnmity,
and it is unwise to treat it as inevitable.
To our view, the situation ishould not
cause alarm to anybody
_who is not excess
ively in debt and not embarked in enter
prises barren of profitable results. We
have a sound currency convertible readily
into gold. The country is rich, not only in
natural resources, but in means for turning
those resources into useful commodities ex
changeable for other useful commodities.
The railma.sls and manufactories and farm
improvements for which, l up to 1873, we
were indebted to foreign creditors, are now
either paid ; for altogether or encumbered
only, with obligations to our own home cap
italists. The interest of money bag fallen
to a'point which proves that production ex
ceeds not only consumption, but f the
facilities for profitable investment. 'Any
man who has good security I to offer -can
borrow readily at six per cent. 1 . per, an
num or less in any of the older states, While
Corporations and municipalities in good
credit do not find it necessary ,to offer
enders more than four. All 4 this is in
direct opposition to the state of things
which prevailed in 1837, 18F, and 1873,
and forbids us to expect- that the panics of
those years are going to be immediately re
peated. A diseased Imagination, dwelling

In closing an article on the action taken
at the recent- ineeting of the Independent
ficantuittee of this State the Elmira'Adrer
ttser says :
".But all hope of compromiie seems now
at an end. The campaign is evidently to be
prosecuted with two Republican fickets in
the field. This being 80, the duty , of 'all
good party men would seem plain enough--
id work and vote for General Beaver and
the rest of the regular ticket. We
crush little faith in reform which aims to crush
out the Republicans and - put Democrats in
power. We believe in reform within the
party. We believe nothing could .be
gained, either for the cause of good genfern
meat in Pennsylvania or` the Republican
party, by 'drawing off votes enough from
General Beav,er to give the vitally itipor
taut election of this year to the Democrats.
We are glad to see that Senator Mitchell, in
his telegram to the committee of Independ
ents, spoke not unfavorably of a new con
vention ; but that just and honorable
method of closing the breach has, as we
have * said, - probably passed away finally.
The fact, however, that the reg ul ars 'nude
the offer ought, as the Advertiser has here
tofore observed, turn the tide strongly in
favor of General Beaver."
The . independents said they wanted - ei
new I Convention; and the regulais reply
"youl shall have it." ,T ha Independents
said. we want the delegates" chosen accord

-"all right, let them be so chosen." The Inde
pendents said "we want, the. representation
in- the convention ~to be bawd on the Re
publican vote ," and the regulars have an
swered "so ho it." Thus every concession
demanded has been made, but not content
with this the Independents now say "we
claini the right to prohibit the nomination of
certain men by convention." This goes just
one step too far. Unless we can have a new
convention,, absolutely free, - untrammeled
and "unboaSeel," then it is useless to have a
new convention. If we have another new
convention thadelegates must come fresh
from the people, to do their Will, and must
own no masterl save that ofpopulai senti-.

ferenee of the party is fo i r ( L . Beaver then
Beaver must be nominated; if for Stewart
then he must become the standard bearer;
if a new man is the party' choice, then
both Beaver and . Stewart must stand. aside.
The convention must be free to carry out
the will of the Republican masses; other
wise we want no new convention because
it would accomplish nothing.—lntlePendent
