But let no Republican excuse . himself
for not votiogo4 that ground.. It is of
the first inipoitance that we carry the
election next that we be able-to

prinligc of such a victory will help ma
to.l tally - iu currying the State for a Re
publican Pretittent in 1879, and no true
Republican r. excusable for neglecting
a political ditty that will tend to bring
about that evi.sitt.
Hon. John Cessna addressed the Con
vtstition in an eloquent speech, in which
he said
" The recces: , of the Republican party in the
suction, as in times pact, depends
moth upon the action of us ia the Keystone

though thoY aro oftiticl to avow it before on eke
tion. If the Republicans win this frtil', they Wtl
have an easy conquest in 1872.."
In his remarks responding to the no
minati2n, Mr. Stanton remarked :
"Inasmuch as the Stato elections of this fit

secure the re-election of President Grant.
" It IS true the war is ovcr, and the armies of
the South arc crushed and ecatterod. The prod
igal Fens have returned to their father's mansion,
and are partaking of their share of the fattened
call ; hut, unlike the prodigal of old, they still
cherish their old feelings of animosity and rebel:

Captain filmfeldt arrived at Wash- .
ington on the 24thinstant, baying com
pleted a survey of the Tehuantepec
route. 'Pile route has Inion thoroughly
surveyed,-&. Capt. S. says that an inter
oceanic canal can be made across that
isthmus at a cost which the importance
of the work will justify.
We ore not so sure f it. We have
same`heard ' that before; and a
ship c nal—ono that will pass our full
rigged, largo, deep, draught cl ip per
ships, from oeean to ocean—is a bigger
institution than most landsmen are
nware of. Such a canal calls cor condi
tions and capabilities quite 'unfiebessary
in an ordinary canal capable Of passing
vessels of 200 tons.' And why doea no•
body sugh'est an ordinary canal? Such
a canal could lie ! finished ' and turned
over to the use Of . commerce for a tenth
of what a canal would coat Capable of
passing a Cape Hornclipppr through ! ,

The commercial capacity, even it no
larger than the Erio canal before itit en

likely to he made on it within the lext
fifty years ; if it wore of, the
make and model of the enlarged
centuries would pass before ,commerce

The Red Man is in Washington again,
begging, as usual, for presents, and,
this time, for green )asks. The Red
Man is represented b " several chiefs of
different nations, nn . their names are
" Little Raveb," " Fowder Face" and
" Chief Bird," of the Arapahoes; "Lit
tle Robe" and "Stone Calf," of the
Cheyennes ; and " Buffalo -Good," of
the Wachitas. • -
Wis the old story of presents, .beg
ging, speech-making and Indian prom,
lees which mean nothing.
Buffalo Good said , he had a white
man's coat and pants on, but. had no
greenbacks In his pocket, and would
like some to take home and show his
friends. That's our case, exactly ; we
want some greenbacks to a h o w our'
friends; and we are just as "good In
dian" es Buffalo Good; let alone that
We never amused our leisure hours by
scalping Uncle Samtiel's children, or

though we think we have done less
cheating ourself than any red skinned

The upper strata of New York society
is moved to its foundations, by a very
common event—and a sensible o n e,
withal. This is nothing more than the
marriage of an ayer a g e, well-to-do
yoimg man with a plump, good looking
young. woman. Ah 1 but the young
woman's name is Dynehart ; her father
" works a farm on shares," we are told ;
while the name of the-bridegroom is
Astor—Henry Astor, son of William
D., who is a New York millionaire.—
Aye, there's the rub. And the father
hastens to Rhinebeck Just In time to
not prevent the wedding, which op
posed to the best of his ability s—and
all Now York is agog, because a young
man has married a fine young woman
on whom he had set his heart. The
young man has a heart, evidently,
which is an extra hazardous thing for
an Astor, and quite unbushaess-like, as
the father thought, and said, in effect.
Fortunately, the young man is rich, In
dependent, and may , do as he pleases.—
That-he did not choose to tie himself to
a weak-spined bundle of milliner's fix
ings and a brown stone front on Fifth
avenue, rather inclines us to think him
the wisest Astor of them all.
The Washington Chronicle has the
following notice of a new temperance
"The Temperance Monitor, a' miniature sheet
just started in New York, argues that drunken
ness is a crime, and should be punished by 'not
loss than" thirty daye' imprlionment and hard la
bor for the first offense, Sixty for the second, and
one year, either in prison or an inebriate asylum,
for the third.'" t
That. Monitor ought t have .100,000
subscribers. It is sailhig on'the right
tack : it goes for punishi(ng: . the crimi
nal, instead of offering im syMpathy
as a " poor inebriate," 4 victim 'of un
controllable 'appetite," " rittneeller's ,
prey," etc. We never hapPened to see
a man drunk on whisky. poured down
his throat by any one - but himself;, and
in nine cases out of ten, the rowdy gets
himself up deliberately on.. whisky,
simply to increase his normal capacity
for - cussedness. He wishes to do an
amount of deviltry that transcends his
natural powers of meanness, and he
knoWS that nothing-will give so much
btiescdness to the square inch as ben
zine whisky. He goes in E,Lcoordingly ;
—and when he has bruta lly murdered
a wife, child, or neighbor,. we are trea
ted to a dismal dissertation on the evils
of rumselling. It always seemed toms
that the fault Was rather in rum.drink.

"About 11 o'cleek a, brass band appear,.
ed on Alabama at., in front of the hotel;
accompanied by a crowd of two or three
hundred people.. . I _lll6-band discoursed
"The Bonny Blue. Flag. Wand 'on the
cessation of the Oleic,' loud calls were
made for "Davis," ,"Davis."
,In answer
to the call, the chief of, the failen Con
federacy appeared on the balcony, and
addressed the crowd for about. 10. min
utes in a strain of impulsive.eloquencei
,which told with powerful effect upon
hie hearers. He con/mended by corn
plimenting, in general Wins; the people
of Alabama. He said iod always
loved them, and now felt that he could
rest in peace with then/ forever. They
were bone of hiaboneand flesh .of his
. fiesh. Alabama and 'hie own State of
Mississippi were yet 'one' in principle;
as they once had been one in territory.,
Their people had sent forth their sons
to battle on the same fields for their
rights and , E4ates., „But,' asked, the
speaker with bitteremphasis, are they
states now ? . - ket.proceeding in an' ex
ulent tone, he declared that State sov;
ereignty, although defeated in the late .
struggle, will ultimately triumph'; its
day of success might not come in his
time, but he would live and die in the
' belief that it would surely -triumph.—
He declared that no people one earth
had ever Ea/flexed as bad- the' Southern
people since, the surrender of the South::
ern armies,.and he loved them for the
fortitude with which they had, borne
the oppresSion heaped tipon - theni. He
had always been willing to give his life
for his people, and - now, if any Yankee
power wanted hie blood to attone for
any action of the Southern people, they
could take it. On UM the Government
had done its worst, and for himself he
did not care, but for the sake of the
people whom he loved, he- , would for
bear to express more fully the feelings of
his heart. He never had asked pardon
for what he had done, and he nerer
would, for he felt that he had done no
wrong. Mr. Davis concluded amid t he
applause of the crowd, which had loud
ly cheered the salient points of his
speech. As he retired, the band struck
up "Dixie." ,
Among the captives taken at Moulin .
Saquet, outside Paris, was an interes

some months ago she became the wife
of a young man, who after the breaking
out of the fcivil war was forced to serve
in the ranks of the insurgents. For
eight days she was without any tidings
of him: and in her despair she adop
ted the uniforni in which she was
wounded and captured, in order that
she might visit all the, outposts in
