Baltimore Gazette, Dem.
It claims the right of the Executive o
station troops at the prills on the ground
that Washington, Jefferson, Jackson and
Lincolu employed them to suppress iu
surrectwn. The veto is real Iv no answer
to the billTor- the chief objections are
based upon points which the bill carefully
avoided raising. The act on its face ex
pressly recognizes in the Kxecutivejho
powers which he assumes are denied.

franchise shall not be curtailed or even
threatened by the menacing presence of
Federal troops, j The Fraudulent Presi
dent of tho United States, backed by the
meu who combined to give him a dis
graceful tenure of the high office he holds,
declares that whenever in his judgment
it is necessarjr to -employ the army and
navy of the United States he will so em
ploy them. He may quibble about the
constitutional duty of the Executive to
enforce the laws at all times, about un
constitutional attempts to limit tho pow
er of the Executive; but nevertheless,
the issue remains as Congress has presen
ted it, that the presence of the troops at
the polls is not only contrary to the spirit
of onr institutions, but dangerous to the
liberty of the people.

Since the organization of the Gen-;

Presbyterian Church has greatly in
creased in influence and member
ship, although it had to encounter the
unfavorable conditions engendered by

They arc now 12 synods, 64 presby-
enes, l,117 ministers and licentiates.
145 candidates for the ministry, 1,878
churches. 5,428 elders, 3,452 deacons,
14,578 commuuicants and 68,121
Sunday school children, showing an
increase of churches and membership
of over fifty per cent. The contribu
tions to all objects reported last year
were $1,030,971. The Church has
wo fine theological seminaries, one
in Virginia and the other in South
Carolina, and a school for preparing
colored men topreach the gospel, at
Many of the most remarkable and
distinguished clergymen of the Uni-
ed State? have been connected with
the Presbyterian Church in the South
ern States, and to-day the roll call of
the General Assembly which meets
in Louisville Thursday will reveal a
fine array of distinguished names

grooves ot the Lalvinistio system,
but who can make sucli tough topics
as "grace and free will," predestina
tion and electron, the eternal decrees,
&c, attractive by their grace aud
eloquence of presentation. The Gen
eva theology compels deep thinking
on the part of its votaries. It is a
"hard and cruel system" according to
some people, but probably they have
not wrestled sufficiently with its mer
its. It should be remembered, too,
that the author of that system suffer
ed excruciating agony, continually,
from eight different diseases which
had captured his body. The oldGer-
mans, in fact, used to say, uncharita
bly, that they would "rather go to
hell with Beza than to heaven with
Calvin," because the latter's temper
was so bad. His system, however,
is a marvel, of the fact that it has
left its impress, with more or less dis
tinctness, on the symbols of so many
churches proves its monumental na
Although every year there is more
or less talk of the re-union of the
Northern and Southern Presbyterians
it is not likely thatrsuch a consumma
tion will be witnessed for some time.
About ten years ago the former co
religionists of the Southern Presby
terians in the North, in a fit of politi
cal enthusiasm, joined hands with the
new school body, whose doctrines
they had formally condemned thirty
years before. The Southern Presby
tenan Uhurcli. tiierciore. remains
doctrinally where its ministers and
elders stood in 1838, while their
brethren have undergone a seemingly
radical doctrinal change.
The Exodus Idea put Differently.
"The Democrats count reliantly,"
says a Republican newspapaer, "on
the 138 electoral votes of the solid
South next year. If the colored exo
dus could be turned in the direction
of Florida to the extent of a few thou
sand voters this calculation would be
sidly interferred with."
Yes, this would be a nice use for
the Republican party to make of the
colored man: Drie him around
from State to State and from district
to district, and make him vote where
ever his vote is needed. When the
migratory army had carried an elec
tion in one State for the Republican
party, march it into another and vote
it there, and so on ad infinilem. Call
it the "ballance of power" and move
it around from one place to another
until it has subjugated every State
and district in thc Union, and in the
off-years anchor the colony in Kansas
or elsewhere and keep it there until
election time comes again : then start
it on the rounds once more and keep
This idea is a little more beasty
than that of inveighling the negroes

tablishing Republican supremacy;

The Medical Tree,
Two millions of the eucalyptus trees
have bceu planted in Algeria. The
French Government has granted g
subvention to a onmpahy for the plan
ting of a yet larger number. In Cor
sica more than a million trees' have
been planted. In Cyprus 30,000 ha vo
already been planted by the British J
authorities in the fever infested local-r.
ities.i The Italian Government is
planting a forest of these miasma-ab
sorbing trees on the Campagna, in the
vicinity of Rome. Prince Troubet- V
koy thinks the Eucalyptus is the most"
useful variety of the tree. It is very
picturesque and of remarkably rapid
growth. Plants grow in pots, and
replanted at the age of six months,
have attained in eight years a height
of seventeen metres. Its leaves con-7
tain six times as much volatile oil as
those of the Eucalyptus globulu. If;
grows as well iu damp as in a dry anJ
exposed soij. It bears cold very well,
having resisted a temperature of twen-ty-oiie

A Supposed Yellow Ferer Germ
Di Walter Bailey, of New Orleans,
a delegate to the recent homeopathic U
convention at St. Louis, has in his pog .
sessiou what he believes to be a real
yellow fever germ. It is a fuugus
growth which formed in tho, object
glass of a microscope during the epi
demic. The doctor's theory as to tha
origin of yellow fever is that the small,
dots or spores iii this invisible fungus
contain afiue powder, which is oast jm
to tlie air br the bursting of the small
bag which contains it. This powder,
being inhaled, cause a fermentation
