H j Here is a specimen of the negroes who were bamboozled and enticed by the friends of the Chicago Inters Ocean and. made to. go .to Indiana It is .a ; shame and outrage that such white rascals f can thus fool -- the Bis-' groes and escape ' unpunished.' The Washington letter in ; the Rtclimond Dispatch giyes the following:: .. i : i "I saw a well-known Washington1 color ed man at the Baltimore & Potomac depot hindly helping with their luggage a dilapi dated colored - party, of .which a forlorn- looking colored man was the head, and I afterwards asked him who they were. He said; 'Do you see that man? Wellhe went rrom JNorth uaroima out to inaiana, ana is now going back home on money a white man in North Carolina he used to live frith sent him. While out there he lost his wife, and his children.' He didn't save any money, and had to burn 'bresh' for fire wood. vThe white people, be says, don't like colored folks, and colored folk3 don't know how to get along with them.' " "Seventeen families were recently sent to South Carolina from New York on the assurance of its Commissioner ' of Emigra tion that there was work for them in tbe factories. They were diverted from their intention to go West by the Superintendent of Castle Garden; who. was willing to throw anything in the direction of the South that looked teaaon&be."PMadelph(aFres8,Bep, Some one has made the good sug gestion, which the Stab indorsed, to have a good agent representing North Carolina among 1 the immigrants as they arrive at Castle Garden from Europe. The above shows that some thing can be done. If it be desira ble to have European immigrants come into the South we can imagine no more certain plan for securing it than an efficient agent in New York to represent North Carolina. Other States should take the same step. Kellogg was. sensible when he in sisted it was wrong to employ men om the North in the various De partments of the Government and credit them to Southern States they had never seen. Senator Morrill, of Vermont, with a moral obliquity quite noticeable, thought it all right that it was important only to have efficient servants. Just so. All of the honesty - and capability lie in tbe North. For instance, when Vice President Arthur was in the New' York Custom House, or Brady in the Post Office Department, and so on. . It is very important that the Govern ment shonld be honestly and. faith fully served. A good way to secure this is to give the South its propor tionate part. What a row Morrill would make if Southern men were to be placed in the offices and credited to Vermont, thereby ousting his con stituents. The New York Herald is now the organ of Roscoe Conkling. It con tained a few days ago a five-column broadside aimed at the President. It is so circumstantial, minute and con nected in its account of what tran spired at Mentor between Garfield and Conkling that it is believed to have been inspired by Conkling him self. : Gorham is supposed to have done the writing. It is said to be in the line of Conkling's cancus speech. Republicans in Washington cannot" give a guess as the probable outcome of the struggle between Garfield and Conkling. It is a mighty interesting fight to the Democrats. They are not mourners at the funeral either. In 1872, there were 437,750 immi grants to the United States. This was the largest in any one year up to 1880,- when the number reached 593,-, 703. Bui 1881 promises to surpass last year, if the stream continues tnrongh the year as it. has been thus far. Since the year $1861 twenty years the number ' aggregates 5, 635,925. " ;In the recent election for a . mem ber of Parliament the Irish electors voted for the Tory candidate. They should read Justin McCarthy's "His-? tory of Our Own Tunes' to ; find out in all the legislation of.rthe last forty years who "were therf al,jXriends of their country among the English peo ple.

The Philadelphia Times' now and then slips up in its editorializings.r In its comments upon ex-President Jef ferson Davis's little spee.conMemo rial Day at New Orleans it, is lex tremely truculent and without any proper occasion.

There was nothing said .by Mr. Davis in regard to the motives ot the war that . ninety-nine men in a hundred in the entire South do not believe and teach. They so believe it, that even such men as Jo. Brown and Alex. Stephens would to-day in dorse every word ot it, and they are never accused of "Bourbonism" by either Northern or Southern papers. What did the "old man eloquent" say that causes the Philadelphia paper to spit out its venom in such raouth fuls? Let us copy again what he said : -;:1 - y::.;-.;.. "From the academic shades of the Mili tary University he went forth to battle for the cause of State rights, self-government and constitutional liberty. Such was Jack son. He livedr-for-his country,never doubting the justice of his cause, believing it was righteous, and 'trusting in bis cause be died,' as I live to day, feeling that the Confederacy ought to have succeeded, be cause it was founded intiuth and justice." - This is all. - It is precisely what every soldier who .fought under the Btars and bars believed. It is pre cisely what Longstreet and; Mahone and Mosby now saints in the lte publican -calendar believed. It is precisely-what every Southern youth ht taught JU).belieYe. The outh fought for what it held to be right. Mark that. The heroes of the South will not teach their children to be lieve that their fathers were traitorB and the cause treason. It is as false as h-ades, if tbe Times does dare to say it, and not only will Mr. Davis, but every true man in all Southland will rise up and tell .the calumniator that it lies when it so charges. But after all the Northern people are very much alike in their views concerning the South, call them Independents or Radicals. ; . .' . . . . . ; After the war Mr. - Davis was treated as a felon and made the scape goat of a people who were just as guilty as . he was. Bat the II. S. Government dared not bring him to trial after the long imprisonment, and the 'Times knows very well the reason why if it had the manliness and can dor to tell it. If he ? deserved the halter then every man: in r the South deserved it who fought for or sym pathized, with the Southern , cause. Treason doth -never prosper: what's tbe ": -reason? ::1 - - Why, when it prospers men don't call it I ..treason ". The bitterness of the ' Times is the more noticeable because the Stab and other Southern papers have given It credit for more than usual fairness and moderation. But from-all such' speoimens as the above we may ' rev erentfy say, "Good Lord deliver us.' - It is time there was economy in the administration of the '- Government. It may be believed - readily that the expenses could be reduced annually atleast ten million dollars if there were an ' Executive : and a Congress deyoted to rigid economy. - We no tice ihat some of the great railways have reduced their expenses immense ly whilst increasing"' their aggregate receipts. - The IL S.

WHICH It is certain, we take it J that there will be a break in the Republican ranks , if Conkling holds lout much longer. The fact that certain Sena tors gave notice in caucus that when the uncontested cases had been dis posed of that then they should feel themselves free to consider any con tested cases ' their judgments might authorize, is a' sure sign that Conk ling will have to face" the music and test his 'strength against the Presi dent, i In this connection we may mention tliat some of the Democrats are very much 'disposed to go with Conkling, and not because they love the South-maligner so much as be cause they think it will rebuke Gar-' field and improve the "prospects of lije Democratic party. One. fieuator r. . ' according to the Washington Stan "I am clearly of the opinion thatitis the duty of Democratic Senators to sustain Conkling. There has been a tendency for years, said the Senator, and it continues to grow, for the Executive department to en croach upon tbe prerogatives of the legis lative biaoch. It should be stopped. No President ever assumed a dictatorial course toward the . legislative . department of onr Government such as the -present occupant of tbe White House has and, should he be sustained,1 there is no telling where he will stop. 1 think it is the policy of the Demo crats to support Conkling in this fight, be cause I think it will do much to disrupt tbe Republican party.' - We cannot hope to drive Conkling out of tbe party, no matter bow often we may 'crush' him. We may, by helping to defeat Robertson, cause such a split in tbe Republican party in New York as will enable us to cany it with ease, in i the next election; but as I said in the outset, it is no funeral of ours. We have no favors to' ask of the Administration." Conkling's grievance is all the talk. He . accuses Garfield of downright lying and of deceiving him grossly. He promised to. do certain .things, says Conkling, and he failed to keep his word. ; There, was a palpable bar--gain in the New York conference be-1 tween the two Radical worthies, an , Garfield fooled the other. 'According ' to the long account off. the bargain in the New York Herald, inspired by Conkli ng, Mr. Garfield began bar gaining in offices 16ng Jbefore the Maine election, but at a, time when the outlook' for the Republican cause was very dismal; that j in fact', the celebrated ' New York -conference,, which was called at the instance of the President and at1 which hoi was present, was forthe purpose of secur i ing the aid of General Grant and Mr; Conkling by promises 'of patronage. Well the South never took much stock in Garfield. -. It believed - what Gov. Hendricks proved in his famous speech against Garfield as to j the Louisiana j rape; it believed in his complicity in the Credit Mobilier and Paving Stone scandals; it believed that he had lied about both. Thus believing the South is not surprised when it learns that : there was a bar gain between Garfield and the Stal warts, and that Conkling charges that Garfield made i promises that ihe i would not keep ' Really, it is extremely in teresting -a very nice kettle ;of spoiled fish. Where; is - the Radical health officer? ' Mrr John .Wanamaker, the .well: known ,,. merchant of Philadelphia, and a deoided Republican, has been on a visit through the .

In regard to social, ostracism, Mr. ; Wanamaker says there. would be none ot that feeling leftcf were it not kept alive by a certain class of news papers ; they clip a -sentence from one : paper j here and - another there, and now and then publish things which excite remark in most cases, not quoting fairly the text of the article." " ,i ' " ' .' - . . . . The Springfield (O.) Bepublic, a strong temperance paper, has made .two disoovenes. The first ! is that "the liquor laws are much more elab orate "and complete in their provis ions than the laws against theft, burg lary and murder.' And the seoond is that thp liquor 'laws are not effec tive, simply ; because they j are not enforced, and they are - not enforced because the public sentiment of : the people does not" demand that they shall be."..
