The President has renominated
Captain Baird as Postmaster of
Lincoln. Captain Baird has been
an efficient officer, and his reten
tion In the service is simply a de
served recognition of faithful ser
vices. The French Royalists .are not
very easily discouraged. The defeat
of the electoral bill m the French
Assembly has infused froh hopes
into their ranks, and now they an
nounce their intention to renew
their effort to secure the establish
ment of a monarchy by the vote of
the National Assembly.
According to the Chicago Tri
bune, Governor Shepherd, of the
District of Columbia ring, and Saw
yer, Mr. Richardson's cx-as.-istant
of the Treasury, are said to have
aspirations for places on the tem
porary Commission to govern the
District of Columbia. These gentle
men want, first of all, to be vindi
cated; and Sawyer wants further
to make $5,000 per annum in "a
light and genteel" employment,
without the investment of any capi
tal in the way of reputation.
General Burxsidr still leads
the Senatorial contestants in Rhode
Island ; but, so far, he simply holds
his own. During the struggle of
the past week he has developed no

of weakness. Unless he can create
a diversion in his own favor during

Congress has adopted a very
singular method to encourage jour
nalistic enterprise. Under the new
postal law, weekly newspapers
are to be conveyed by mail to all
parts of the country, at the rate of
one and a-half cents per iouiid,
while daily papers are to le charged
three cents per pound. In otiier
words, Uncle Sam proioes to tax
publishers, Avho patronize him every
day in the week, one hundred per
cent, more than he charges to pul
lishers, who patronize Jiim once a
week. Again, the dailies that ex
hibit the greatest cntcrprse in the
size of their papers, arc to be pun
ished correspondingly for their lib
erality. There is now scarcely a doubt
that the construction of the Union
Pacific depot and headquarters
buildings' will be commenced with
in the next twenty dajs. Work on
the .post office and the long neglec
ted jmblie thoroughfares will also be
resumed by July first. This will af
Jbrd employment for quite a number
of working men and consequently
put considerable money into circu
lation among our retail merchants.
Even a partial revival of trade
will go far to revive the drooping
spirits of many of our business men
who have had just reason for com
plaining about the dullness of the
season. If our capitalists could only
be induced to take an earnest hold
of the proposed railway extensions
north and south, Omaha would
soon regain what she should never
have lost, the commercial suprema
cy in the Missouri Valley.
The dawn of common sene
touching the reapportionment con
troversy among our rural western
coatemporaries is highly gratifying.
The .Lowell Hcgtstcr which, hereto
fore has differed very dccidedly
vrith the views expressed by the
Bee on the proposed remedies to
Western disfranchisement has at :
last arrived at the following couclu-
"It is conceded on all hands that
It is entirely impracticable to have
two extra sessions of the Legislature
this year, and thus to secure both
reapportionment and an early con
stitution. It is now conceded, also, by those
cognizant of all the facts in the
case, that re-apportionment is, and
wj;, impossible. Had we attempt
ed i4 the result would only have
been a complete defeat, with the
evil prestige ofwhich to enter upon
the cainpaigc. It is most fortunate
that it was not attempted,
It is also a fact that re-apportionment
was sought more for its per
sonal bearings upon the.U. S . sena
torial campaign.than for its benefits
to the people at large."
SECKET POLITICAL OBGANIZATIOKS.
In a free country, secret political
to liberty. They are political rings
on a lurge scale, whose chief aim is
the concentration of all political
power within the magic circle of its
oath-bound adherents. As long as
free speech and free press remain
the corner stones of our political
fabric, honest men need not shun
the daylight with any political
views they may desire to propagate.
If the advocates of any particular
reform are governed by unselfish
motives they can accomplish their
objects more- readily by courting
public investigation of their doc
trines and principles than by dark
lantern organizations. The Ameri
can Government was founded by
the people for the people, and every
thing that concerns the popular wel
fare should be open to public discus
sion. Charitable organizations anil so
cieties whose objects are - mutual
improvement and protection, such
as Maon-:, Odd Fellows, Grangers,
and trades' unions, have a perfect
right to adopt pass-words and signs
for mutual recognition. They have
a right to transact their business in
secret, since that business concerns
only their own members. Political
organization1;, on the other hand,
profess to be organized for the pur
pose of regulating and reforming
the public service, ami for conduct
the affairs of the State or Nation.
All the people are interested in the
actions of such organization, and
consequently, their actions should
ever be accessible to the public.
Secret political societies have al
ways been the hot IkmIs of political
corruption, and we need only cite
"Tammany" to prove to veracity of
this declaration. They have as we
have declared at the outset, been a
standing menace to liberty, and we
need only refer to Know nothing
ism and Ku Ivluxism. Men who
fight their battles in the dark, and
expect to waylay their political eno
mies by their underground strategy,
are certainly not entitled to the
confidence of the people.
Much less should they be entrusted
with sacred responsibilities in the
conduct of tlio people's business.
Against this class of covert reform
er the Bi:e j.roposes to wage unre
lenting warfare. It is immaterial
whether the men who have asso
ciated themselves with secret politi
cal organizations have been, or are
now, our patrons and friends. If
they have allied themselves with a
band of masked political Ku Kuixes
they must prepare to meet the
consequences of their impru
dence. Secret political societies
may sometimes meet with tempor
ary success, but in no instance have
they been known to benefit the
people whose welfare they profess
to have at heart. The argument
that arrogant capital and soulles
monoiolists can only be restrained
by secret political organizations is a
sham that can very readily be ex
ploded. Capitalists and monopo
lists without difficulty find emissa
ries to keep them fully advised
about the plans and schemes of any
secret political body. Every politi
cal battle must be fought at the ballot-box
and honest people will pre
fer to fight their battles in the open
field to sneaking behind the cover
of maikcil batteries.

THE MAIDEN'S LAMENT.

Yet the sun comes up with the coming morn,
And the West ith flame again, as of yore;
But a hope once set is never reborn,
And a tiejrt that is broteu is dead evermore.

And lifted wet eyes to the rtong moon.

A few days ago a young couple
registered their intentions to be
married at the City Clerk's office.
The clerk recorded their names in
due form, gave them a little of that
excellent advice of which he has so
bountiful a store, and pocketed the
fee. Yesterday the intending wo
man told a friend that she was mar
ried and living with her husband.
On cross-examination she described
the ceremony that the clerk went
through when she was as she sup
posed united to her true-love in the
bonds of matrimony. At this re
cital she was informed that she had
only been "registered" and could
not be married until she received
her certificate. This made trouble
in the young woman's mind, and
she at once started for her brevet
husband and broke the awful intel
ligence to him. He was thunder
struck, and the once happy couple
are debating what to do about it.
Married people should treat each
other like lovers all their lives, then
they would be happy. Bickering
and quarreling would soon break oil
love affairs consequently, lovers
indulge in such only to a very limi
ted extent. But some people men
and women both when they have
once got married, think they may
do just as. they please, and it will
make no difference. They make a
great mistake. It causes alt the dif
ference in the world. Women should
grow more devoted, and men more
fond after marriage, if the have the
slightest idea of being happy as
wives and husbands. It is losing
sight of this fundamental truth,
which leads to hundreds of divorces.
Yet many a man will scold his
wife who would never think of
breathing a harsh word to his
sweetheart; and many a wife will
be glum and morose on her hus
band's return, who had only smiles
and words of cheer for him when he
was her suitor. How can such peo
ple expect to be happy?

According to a Catholic paper the
procession in honor of the liquefac
tion of the blood of St. Jauuarius
took place this year in Naples with
great pomp. Indeed, nothing like
it has been since 1S.J3, Tlio blood
was hard when taken from the
cathedral, but liquefied when ex
posed upon tho altar of the church
of St. Chuira. The return of the
procession to the cathedral, which
took place at night, was illuminated
by electric light, and produced a
very striking effect. A tremendous
crowd lined Uio streets, and the
iiianlfostations of faith and religious
fervor were so remarkable that oven
the Liberal papers report upon them
with surprise, and, of course, indig

from reading, just before going to
bed, the following extract from
one of Henry Ward Beecher's ser
mons: "I sleep Saturday nights
for Sunday. My best sermons are
always slept up. I lie in the morn
ing in that dreamy state when my
hotly seems to be asleep and my
mind wideawake, nnd 1 fashion my
sermons. If you could hear one of
them you would never want to hear
them as here delivered ; they are so
much larger and more symmetrical,
and I often spring from my bed say
ing, 'God help me, I will have a
sermon to-day ! ' but the moment
that I want to imprison my thoughts
into words, they are gone, And so
I say L have an experience of the
higher life, momentary though it
be, a faint and feeble analogue of
the disclosures that are yet to come
in the other life."
The Bev. George C. Betts, former
ly of Omaha and now of the Protest
ant Episcopal Church, in Kansas,
is in a newspaper controversy with
the Bev. Dr. Holland, of the same
Church, in St. Louis. It appears
that Mr. Betts was invited by Dr.
Holland to preach m the church of
the latter, and that he did preach,
and discussed "Ritualism," con
tending that those who denounced
it were confounding doctrine with
ritual, to the sad neglect of the for
mer. To this sermon Dr. Holland
made a public reply. Mr. BetLs res-Kinds,
and among other things, in
reference to the alleged " Romaniz
ing tendency," says:
" Now we are not easily fright
ened. Let it be noted that, not-
witiistamiing all tins clamor and
confusion, the Protestant Episcopal
Church does actually recognize the
Roman Catholic Church as a lawful
branch of tho Church of Christ,
while, on the contrary, she utterly
repudiates the pretensions of the
sects to any such honor."
