The above is the question which Dem
ocrats are u.skiri themselves when con
siderins the proposition of the Missou:i
Hepublicun to abandon all party organi
zation and pick up some disappointed
ltcpublican candidate for the I'n-sideticy
in 1ST, with a view to drawing a suffi
cient number of Republican votes to
elect him. We shall not attempt to de
cide tbc point for Democrrats, but we
i'eel confident that any disappointed Re
publican who attempts this move wi'l
h worse I, eaten than a Democrat would.
This proposition is based solely on the
supposition that President Grnnt will be
re-nominated, and that there is a strong
unti-aduiinistration feeling in the Repub
lican party. Te admit that both supposi
tions arc based on strong reasons, and
yet neither of them are by any means
certain of accouip!i;hmont. President
Grant has very many warm supporters,
and there is no question but the general
policy of the administration has proved
u complete success and that he has the
hearty support of the great mass of the
Republican party ; yet it does not follow,
by any maimer of means, that he will be
tlTeir nominee for President, and then
where would bs the grand work and
theory of the RepnfJictin and its adhe
rents? Rut, again, suppose President
(Jrar.it should be honored by the nomina
tion, the theory of the Republication is
yet as lame as in the first instance ; for
in this it prc-suppose3 that President
Oraut s administration does not meet
the approval of his party, else it must
rest on the belief that men will vote
down a man whose administration re
ceives their endorsement and elect one
who would be likely to be ruled by an
opposite clement for the sole reason that
they diSered from him on some point or
because he had not appointed iheir es
pecial friends to office, cither of which
is fallacious reasoning. As we said be
fore, cveu those who are opposed to the
rc-nominatiou of President Grant cannot
deny that the general policy of Lis ad
ministration has been a complete success,
and they would not allow any little per
sonal considerations to cause them to
vte against his re-election. The Re
publican is evidently "reckoning without
its host," and its "new departure" can
not -but prove a failure, whether or not

When the prcseat Bishop (Clarkson)
of Nebraska. wa rector iu Chicago, a
droll jnterrapriou in the service once oc
curred. Reusing the leson of tho cliy
he prorronticeJ with eiuphaeis the words,
"Mene, Mfcrit?, Tekel, Uf.-hariii !" Now
the familiar 'aplation of the rector's
wife was '"Mene," and she and a little
daughter sat under the desk in the rec
tor's pew, The little fir listened to the
first part of her father's utterance with
quickened hearing, but the last two
words were too much for her and she
spoke up sharply, so that a'l the jeople
heard, "Stop! you sh.i'n't talk to my
mother so!" One can imagine the feel
ings of the congregation over an incident
which recalls the celohratcd interview
and interchange of epithets between Dju

Speaking of the Chicago disester, II.
W. Beeeher says:
I have been very much struck with
the predatory wickedness of those men
who, iuenible to the suffering around
them, reported there to steal and rob.'
There are a great niauy persons who say
that there cannot be a devil; that God
is too good to have such a monster. I
- only say that if there is not any, there
are very good materials to make one out
of. Laughter. i If God is to good to
have a devil in chief, he ain't too good
to have thciu in detail; All the fables
ttat ever moaks put together do 'not
erjual the heineousness of men who prey
on their' fellow like that. They are like
men wh'6 follow a battle; thit stab a man
that they may rob him. You do not
see any gJeat' catastrophe but you see
what men creep out to show how wicked
wickedness maybe; and inhuman in
humanity cad be.

Messrs. Field, Lester & Co., Mr. J.
. Harwell, aud other members of the
great mercautilo. houses of Chicago,
meet in this city within a day or two to
consult with tho wholesalers of New York
in regard to their present obligations and
future tiaosactions. This meeting will
enable New York merchants to obtain
BHiie definite idea of the total loss by
the fire. Some of the Chicago mer
chants have been in the city several days.
A prominent New York importer, who
has told largely ro Chicago for marry
years, after a consultation with some of
the best informed merchants of that city,
said to the writer on Saturday, that a
rough estimate fixes the actual destruc
tion of property by tho fire at about
seventy-five million-, and that the insur
ance thereon amounts to about fifty nu!
lioiis, lbity miilions of which will proba
bly be paid. An active olHecr of insur
ance in this city said on the same day
that exertions are making among the
strong insurance compau'cs, especially
those who have not suffered by the lire,
to assist those who are weakened bv loss
es, arid enable them to pay up every dol
lar, to the end that full justice may not
only be done to the policy-holder, but
that the principle of insurance may bo
honorably established in the United
States, end that all companies hereafter
may rest upon such a firm basis as to se
cure the public confidence.

Clafllin & Co , has indicated a purpose
to join with other merchants' in the city
to afford every possible material assist

themselves in business and rebuild their

heard from, are equally liberally dis
posed. Business men generally arriving
here from Chicago arc kindlv received.

Ths Diet of Worms.
Mr. Henry Ward Beeeher is rirrht.
Why should there be any objection
to healthy worms tToncrly cooked, as
an article of diet? An ecl, for example,
is only a large worm; but its food is clean
and healthful; aud its flesh is only second
to that of the trout, or the trout's equal,
the Spanish tuackcral, or the sheep's
head. A roasted i:ru-hoi)ner. whose
only food is the sweet fiesh grass, or the
smaller families who have eaten it before
him, "done brown," with fresh butter
on toast, Delmor.ico cannot equal as a
The chest tint worm, as Mr. Bcccher
well ohseives, never ate an unclean thing
in bis life; he lived upon the beat ami

carefully seasoned, and watched sedulous
ly while being unuvcrdone, what could
be more delicous? There really is a
great mistake in the general public mind,
as it is ca!i"d, about these things. What
are the lively inhabitants of a rich cheese,
for example, but a part and the best
.-elected paifc at that of" the goodly
cheese itself? Whoever taw an English
man evade the "settlement" in a well
established Cheshire, or matured Stiiton,
or petrified Chcddai? Perhaps few per
sons. No; nothing that habitually devours
good food, with discretion and discrimi
nation, is unworthy to be eaten. Even
cannibals themselves, in their human pre
serves, finally lost their relish, from the
variety of their game, A fat, well led,

Mr. Uocher's theory is a benevolent

A good sort of man was recently asked
to subscribe for a chandelier lor the
church. "Now." said he "what's the
use of a chandelier? When you get it
you can't get any one to play it."
The question is, not whether a doc

They tell of a Chicago lady whose
husband was worth $250,000 before the
fire, and who traveled last summer with
Saratoga trunks ; now all she has left
was saved in two barrels. This case
doesn't strike us as being so desperate
a some others. Retailed at twenty
eents a drink those two barrels would
furnish a right nice start.
A-ritcr in an Ilnglish review says

A story is told cf a certain man and
his wife who were always quarreling.
During their quarrels, their .only chili
(a boy) was generally present, and of
course, heard many of his father's ex
pressions. One day, when the boy had
been doing something wrong, the mother
intending to chastise liiiu; - called him
and said, "come here, sir: what did you
do that for?" The boy,, eomplacently
folded his arms, and imitating his father
said, "See here, madam ! V don't wish
to have any words with you I"

The Democracy are troubled about
another military usurpation. Gen. Sher
idan, iu taking command at Chicago,
during the tire, and saving the portion
of the city that was saved, violated the
Constitution of Illinois, whereat Gov.
Palmer waxes indignant, aud the Dein
inocracy, those lovers of the Constitu
tion, fairly howl. It matters not if Sher
idan did save half the city, and prevent
a hundred thousand homeless citizens
from starving, or perishing from the
inclemency of the weather ho violated
the Constitution of Illinois! Notfl had
the fire occurred when Beauregard was
at Chicago, and had he taken the part
and accomplished the results th-t Sher
idan did, the same Pemocratic papers
would have sounded his praises from one
end of" the laud to the other. Every
act, word and movement would have
been reported, and dwelt upon as
s'mjethinir for the world to wonder at.
George Washington would have been
thrown into the shade. For Beauregard
is a high toned Southern gentleman,
while Sheridan was only a Union sol

The Galesburg, 111., Register has the
following clever story :
"Four of our Galesburg ladies who
must be nameless here have been
among our farmers collecting or "beg
ging" as they are pleas .d to term it, for
the Chicago sufferers. In their travels,
they came upon an honest farmer of the
copperhead persuasion,"- wh doesn't
read or take a paper of any kind. He
hadn't heard of tho Chicago fire and
didn't believe a word of it. Ir.deed, the
last time he heard from the United
States the "war for the rebellion" was
still goinsr on. No, he wouldn't give a
darned thing for the wounded; it was
nothing but a nigger war and they could
suffer and be darned. The ladies, who
are all good talkers you know, explained
that many poor people had been made
homeless ami penniless by t he Chicago
tire. But he would not be convinced,
lie said that they might have fired the
other way. Finally one of the ladies
produced a copy of the Register and read
its dispatches received during the catas
trophy. The old gentlemnn still thought
there was a Republic.m brick in it, but
told the hand:oujc!y dressed ladies that
lie had a lot of potatoes there in the
ground, and if they 'were a mind to dip
'em, they could have all they wanted.'
The offer was accepted, and the ladies,
who knew their customer, jumped nimbly
from their light spring wagon, each with
a spade in baud, and set to work. The
farmer stood aghast, surveying his new
field hands with undisguised amazement.
They gathered about twenty bushels,
and went back yesterday for moie. Be

A London Timis correspondent writes:
"It is stated, on competent authority,
that one could hardly find a family
in Germany, from the highest to the
lowest, which has not some relative to
lament for in consequence of .the late

severely in that way, because service in
the campait-n has not becu so universal

highest class of French people in the
army has been an exception; but there
is not princely or noble family in Ger

why did you not come ?"
"Please, sir," said the favorite, "I

Philadelphia has one beautiful custom
it is that of giving the whole body of
school children a day at Fairmount Park
in September of each year. And when
the little folks go out for their annual
holyday, the grown folks go along to
see tho sport and guard them from ac
cident. Nutting Day, as it is called, in
memory of the old times when Fair
mount was nothing but a wild wood,
Nutting Day came on the 29th ultimo
thi?3'ear; and one of the local papers
says there were not less than 0113 hund
red and twenty-five thousand persons in
the Park that day. It was eight hours
of clear sunshine and joyous picturing,
with music, and swings, and football,
aud croquet, and all the other games
that ever were invented; and at dark
the children went home to live the day
over in fond recollection, and begin talk

comes round again next year.
