Will the Herald bo kind enough

The Herald announces that Miller
& Richardson were the lowest bid
ders, and the question naturally
arises who enjoyed tho privilege of
bidding against them? Ordinarily
it is the custom for parties
managing a public trust to
advlrtlBO for proposals, with a
stated time for the opening of the
bids. Inasmuch as we had never
even heard of such proposals, it
is fair to infer that the ordinary
method was not pursued in this in
stance. The retirement of Secretary Rich
ardson from the Cabinet has been
repeatedly prognosticated ; but until
recently these reports have been un
founded. The Sanborn investiga
tion seems, however, to have
brought to light some ugly facts im
plicating the Secretary in various
Irregularities. His early retirement
in consequence of these develop
ment seems now to bo a foregone

The Kansas and Missouri papers
are still howling about the outra
geous discrimination by the Union
Pacific Railroad in refusing to
prorate with the Kansas Pacific
upon freight and passengers trans
ferred at Cheyenne.
In Justification of their course) the
Union Pacific have placed documen
tary statements before Congress,
which cover the following points :
1st The Union Pacific has always
been ready, and is now ready, to
make rates which shall not dis
criminate against the Kansas Pacific,
but It cannot prorate mile for mile
on the baslsi of Its lowest through
rates from Omaha to Ogden because
of mountain grades and curves on
the west half of its road and the
greater distance via Kansas Pacific
2d, More than two-thirds of the
through rate from Omaha to Ogden
is earned jon the west half of the
Union Pacific; but it has offered and
now oners to mviuo tne mrougn
rate with the Kansas Pacific on that
basis. That company refuses the
offer, and demands one-half of the
through rate, or a pro-rate mile for
mile which is more than half the
3d. The law, if applicable at all in
favor of the Kansas Pacific, (which
the Union Pacific denies,) simply
declares the rule of non-discrimination.
One-half tho through rate or
a pro-rata mile for mile would be
gross discrimination against the

8ekator Edmund's bill for tho
-appointment of a Commissioner to
investigate Postal Telegraphy, is
evidently a flank movement of tho
Telegraph monopolists to-shelve all
the other propositions now pend
ing before Congress for the estab
lishment of a Postal Telegraph.
America justly prides herself as
being the birthplace of Electric Tel
egraphy, but the masses of tho
American people know less to-day
absut the practical working of the
Telegraph than they do about the
sBoveaaentB of the solar system. In
feet; the popular ignorance on this
-subject in a country where Tele-
graphy lias come into such gen
eral uo is absolutely disgraceful.
The intelligent masses of Ameri
ca know but very little more about
the telegraph than the untutored
savage, who ascribes its mysterious
workings to a spirit Even the sage
law makers of the nation possess
but very crude concptions touching
this space annihilating messenger.
They know that the telegraph has
been an indispensable adjunct of
modern civilization. Tho3' know
that it regulates the world's com
merce, and brings tne nations oi me
earth into mora intimate relations
with each other. They do not com
prehend, however, that the practi
cal benefits of this greatest inven
tion of the nineteenth century, have
been confined within comparatively
narrow limits in this country, by
tho monopolists who control
tho svstem. Thev do not seem
to know that the aid
extend oil by one of these mo
opolies to the slaveholder's
rebellion was or more prac
tical value to the confederates
than could have been an army of
one hundred thousand men. Had
the Telegraph been under the direct
control of the Government in 1861,
the rebellion would have been com
paritively short lived. One of the
etmnrpf nnniments in favor
of Postal Telegraphy has been
furnished by the Arkansas rebellion.
Almost the verr first step taken bv
the belligerent Baxter was the seiz
ure of the telegraph office at Little
Rock. He placed an embargo upon
telegraphic communication and
prevented the transmission of all
messages tendlntr to weaken hi
cauc. Now if the telegraph had
been in the hands of the Govern
ment, would this us-nrper have
dared to tamper with it ?
Why did not Bater take posses
sion of the postoffice? He knew
well that such an attempt would
have produced an immediate colli
sion with Uncle Sam's military
forces, and that was just what ho
anxiously sought to avoid.
It is notour purpose atthistimo to
enter into an elaborate discussion of
the merits of postal telegraphy. We
merely desiro to show incidentally
that tiie American people ought to
b6 educated to a more intelligent
comprehension of tho telegraph,
and its ues and abuses.
It may tako several years to bring
about such a change, but wo confi
dently anticipate that the day is
not very distant when Telegraphy
shall become part of our common
school education, "and when the
Government shall make tho Tele
graph the universal messenger by
why a dishonest cabinet officer

of the inhabitants of every village

It is more the fashion in England
than in America to marry women
from the stage, though there, as
here, it is deemed the proper thing
for them to retire after marriage,
and never return during the life of
tho husband. Americans, as a rule,
are not inclined to dramatic connu
biality, and in this respect are quite
different not only from the English,
as has been said, but from tho
French, Italians, and Geimans,
who wed singers and players when
ever they oan turn such wedding to
pecuniary accsunt. With all our
practicability, we are far more ro
mantic and ohivalrous in respect to
matrimony than the European na
tions. More than any people we
marry for love, or what we take to
be such, which, in regard to motive,
is the same, though in experience it
often proves a very different thing.
We also want the woman to owe
everything, especially of a financial
kind, to our marital selves. Hence
the general indisposition among
men of pride and principle to be,
in any sense, fortune hunters. To
such men the feminine possession
of property is often a conjugal ob
jection. They are deterred by that
fact alone from proposing to a wo
man whom otherwise they would
bo happy tp bo united to. Not so
with ' Europeans. Many of them
would take a hag for a wife if she
were sufficiently endowed.
