J he Pennsylvania Kepublicans are
well and harmoniously organized, and
tbe democracy have given up tbe fight
in that state; at least, one would judge
bo by the tone of their leading paper-.
The Supreme Court has the Silvers
case in hand, and ominous silence now
reigns in regions where clatter, and
wise discussion but recently prevailed;
whether this means the top rail of the
fence is rapidly filling up, or cot, we
cannot say. So far as the Hebald is
concerned, it maintains its perpendieu
larity on the most elevated portion of
that structure with composure and d els
certain that its position is the safest,
us well as one of dignity and comfort
In the menu time' we wish to suggest
to our Democratic brethren that they
had best be lookiug up some othei
great issue upon which they can turn
our antiuiouopolist friend from "Arbor
Springs Lodge" loose upon the people
of Nebraska next fall. The bottom is
already pretty effectually knocked out
of ibis one, as it now is; and no mat
ter what our Supreme Court may do
in the premises, it won't do to depend
on the State Capitol Contract to boost
that pari iuto power.
Hon. Jeremiah Black is danger-
oursly ill at his home in York, Pennsyl
vania. The old gentleman is a relic of
old time Democracy, and a jurist of de
servedly national fame. It was a pa
per written by Mr. Black that recently
called for the famous letter from Jef
ferson Uavis in defense of secession,
and the action of tbe Democracy ot
James Buchanan's days, when no power
or authority could be found in the con
stitution to warrant a Democratic ad
ministration in taking traitors bv the
throat and puuishiug them for high
treason. As Air. Black was contro
verting Mr. Davis and his constitution
al view upon secession, universal re
gret w Jll prevail should his sickness
prevent the vigorous reply, which is
expected of him, to the recent letter ot
the great representative of tbe South
This discussion between Mr. Davis
and his old Attorney General, will,
however, impress the reader with tbe
great truth that tbe wheels of progress
in this eaiiichtened age can crush the
hardest granite in tbe shape of Demo
cratic prejudice; when men like Jere-
mian Black, A ho have been celebrated
for their refusul to extract wisdom from
the many errors and mistakes of their
party ; who have clung to its effete hob
bies and traditions from the time its
teachings and tendencies plunged the
country into civil war in '61 down ta
the present day, break away from its
influence and control and taice up the
rational side of such a dissension.
Jerre Black is a terse, vigorous writert
of much more than ordinary power
and ability; and the great pity is, that
he did not employ that power and abil
ty on behalf of his country at a time
when he could have rendered it great
service, and established the fact that
his love of country exceeded his love of
party. The Herald devoutly hopes
the old gentleman may live to com -plete
an argument he should have made
twentf odd years ago.
Ou, Yes; "Turn .the rascals out,"
that's it, Mr Dana of th Sun sings,
"Turn out the rascals," and the entire
democratic press join in the choral cry,
"Turn em out" and turn in tbe democ
racy: free trade is abandoned for a free
for all rustle lor oflice. Fortuwith the
New York Sun takes up the tailings
from the star toute trials and inter
views, and quotes and swears .by Mr.
Dorsey. Dorsey is made to divulge the
great and staitliag truth thai, this and
that republican contributed liberally
to the republican ftiud to help carry
Indiana for James A. Garfield iu 1880,
and forthwith the air is darkened with
democratic hands held high in holy
horror at tbe idea that funds were sent
to the Uoopier state to help elect a re
publican ticket. Tbe sum total of all
villainies is charged up to a political
party that uses funds in placing its
representatives in power, and especially
is this the case where a democratic
stronghold, like Indiana, Is Invaded
and subdued ; very shortly, however,
tbe scene changes; tbe internecine war
among the loyal ranks of tbe New Yotk
democracy grows redhot, Tammany
and anti-Tammany enter the lists, and
the question among these virtuous pa
triots naturvlly arises, who should be
turned ro wben tice rnsceto are turned
out?" John Kelly stoutly maintains
that he represent the loyal democra
cy, while the Sun terms Mr. Kelly and
his warriors as a band of half breeds
and traitois. Mr. Kelly nnd his friends
retort that the traitors reside in the
Tilden wing of tbe party and prove it
by the'.r man, Birdsall, "all the way
from Connecticut," whereupon the Sun
the organ which has been quoting Mr.
Dorsey and condemning the use of
funds by republicans in Indiana, when
Mr. Garfield wm given that state, comes
up smilingly to the scratch and proves
that Uncle Sammy Tilden, at one time,
gave the national democratic committee
his cheek for $25,000 to help, aid and
assist in electing Mr. Hancock ; and
thereupon, Mri Tilden'a loyalty to the
party is established beyond per ad ven
ture; but while it is being established,
the Dorsey boom has received a very
serious backset ; that $25,000 contribu
tion by the patriot from Graniercy.is a
very unfortunate fact for the Sun to
bring out, just when it is ringing the
changes on the contribution by wealthy
republicans, of their good money, to
help the good cause of keeping this
country in the hands of a republican
administration. Verily, "consistency i
a jewel'' which the party of obstruction
cannot estimate or properly appreci
ADUDE IN THE RAILROAD OFFICE
rrom the New Orleans Times Democrat.
Yesterday a dude walked into the
Louisville and iNashville ticket office,
not a New Orleans -iude, but one of the
mported sort, which is seldom seen
here. Ou his clo ely cropped, bullet
head was perched a mauimotb white
beaver, the wide brim of which curled
up like a scoop, and formed a roof for
he protection of u large pair of pigeon
toed ears. The tail of his delicate coat
flirted around his suspender buttons,
and entirely failed to cover the south
ern exposure of his tight-litting pants,
which were so small in the legs that
they looked like two umbrella covers.
Below the bottoms of the pants which
clasped the ankles like a Langtry glove
were a pair of feet which the Smithso
nian institute have been trying to find
for a long time. They simply stood
straight out from the rest of the dude,
as if tbey belonged to another family.
while the ticket cierks were wondering
how the dude managed to slip his feet
through bis pant's legs without using a
shoe horn, he leaned both elbows on
the counter, and, with a gentle smile,
said: "Cawn't you sell me a sleeping
car ticket to Atlantaw, Georgaw?"
"e9, 3am the clerk.
"Aw, well do so me deah fellaw.
please. Aw! but I forgot to ask the
price, you k aw."
He was told the price ot tbe ticket,
and handing out the money he drum
med on the counter with his hands and

The ticket clerk could stand no more
and was in the act cf reaching for a pa

of his hand, said:

How "Spoopendyke" Reported an
From the Washington Republican.
It is an old siory but good enough to
Absut the nrst newspaper worlc
Stanley Huntley, the "Spoopeudyke" of
the .Brooklyn .Eagle, did, was on The
New xoik Tribune, when Greeley was
its editor. His maiden assign menu was
to repojt a convention of eminent agri-
cultujist. It struck the newly fleoged
reporter that the delegates did not know
wuut they were talking about, and he
ailudeii tnem trequently i.- the course
of his report as a parcel of old women
and Jdiots, who hadn't the remotest
idea ot practical agncuiture. as ne
sat at his desk rouudiug out his report
and filling in a few aojecuves indica
tive of bis disapproval of the proceed
ings ot the day and the men who par
ticipated, he noticed a man at the other
end of tbe room shooting copy thiough
a tube into tbe composing room. When
be was done the man who had been
feeding the tube was out of his seat,
and the innocent Huntley fired bis own
matter to tbe foreman without submit
ting it to the man at the tube, who, as
he afterward learned, was the city ed
itor. The next day he was summoned
before Hoi ace Greeley, Who opened out
on him with' a -stream of orofuuity
that inad Huntley's hair stand ou eua.
It was evident that the great editor was
not pleased With .the new man's effort,
and the luckless author received a dres
sing do wn . he never forgot. - At the
first break in tue. torrent vf luvectives
tbat floI. from tbe good man's lips,
Huntley xentureU to ask if his report
was not Collect, and if the first duty of
a reper was not to state tacts. - - . ,
"Yes, of course, but you conld have
stated tbe facts without calling the
convention a congregation of old idi
and ttbeo MkrWVd sve Wegsi4fe
"But were they not u set of blanked
old idiots ?"' timidly inquired the vic
tim of the great editor's wrath.
"Yes, I suppose they were, he des
pairingly exclaimed, thoroughly ex
hausted, and realizing the poeJty of
language in dealing with such a sub
ject; "but blankoty, blank, blank your
fool soul, I was one of 'em myself. I
was president ot the meeting."
