The electric telegraph is the most
marvelous production of the nine
teenth century. Just thirty years
ago in June, lS44,thc firt telegraph
ic message was transmitted over
the experimental line from Balti
more to Washington. Twenty years
ago the flrst practical experiment
was made in submarine telegraphy
by the British Government in lay
ing a cable in the British channel
between Dover and Calais. Six
teen years ago the first attempt was
made to connect Europe aud Amer
ica by telegraph, and owing to the
failure of that project every practi
cal electrician on both sides of the
Atlantic became firmly convinced
that ocean telegraphy was imprac
ticable. It will be only nine years in Au
gust since' the daring effort of Cyrus
"W. Fiela' to put America into in
stantaneous communication with
Europe, was crowned with succes?.
Since then ocean telegraphy has
made such wonderful progress that
only one more link remains be
tween California and Japan to
complete the electric girdle around
Only yesterday another link in
the great electric chain was success
full forged. Brazil, clasped hands
with Brittania, and Don Pedro con

And this reminds us of a histori
cal incident, connected with our
personal experience. In 1SG2, while
located at the "War Department, in
"Washington, as a member of the
U. S. Military Telegraph Corp,
we conceived the project to inaugu
rate a system of telegraphy in Bra
zil. Through Baron Lisbon, then
Minister Flcnipontentiary of Brazil
at the national capital, we
made our proposition to
the Brazillian Government. That
proposition was placed before
the Brazillian Congress, and by
them taken under advNement. In
due time, Baron LIsboa transmitted
the following rerly :
Washington, Feb. 10, 1SC3. j
JEL Moscwalcr, C. S. Jfililari Tele
graph, War Dcjxiitmcnt:
Sin Your proposition to construct
a system of telegraph lines for the
Brazillian Government has been un
der consideration by our Congress,
and I am instructed to inform you
that onr telegraphic lines only ex
tend from the Capital at Rio Janiero
to the Emperor's palace, some five
miles distant A telegraphic engin
eer would therefore be unnecessary,
especially since the Government
lias no intention to make more ex
tensive experiments. Should they
eventually decide to construct such
lines, we shall be pleased to confer
with you. Respectfully,
A few years later, when Brazil
declared war agaiust Paraguay, the j
government discovered that the j
failure to accept our proposition in
volved an expense of several hun
dred millions in money and thou
sends of lives. Since then Brazil
has constructed thousands of miles
of telegraphic lines, and the com
" pletion of the European cable put

Political demagogues and design
ing impostors niay sometimes suc
ceed in decoying working men into
their meshes, but their success is
usually of brief duration.
The attempt of a few broken
winded and played out political
bummers of both parties to inagurate
a movement in the name of the in
dustrial classes has already received
its death blow.
The exposure made by the Bee
of the character and objects of the
impostors engaged in this move
ment have opened the eyes of the
real workingmen, and they have
promptly . and unequivocally re
pudiated the concern.
The Nebraska Trades' Assembly,
composed of the various mechanical
trades unions in this city, has offi

They proclaim in most emphatic
language, that the mechanics and
workingmen of Omaha, do not pro
pose to become the dupes of a gang
of unprincipled wire pullers, whose
only aim is to organize a pool for
political spoils. Omaha working
men are, therefore, not inclined to
pull the political chestnuts out of
the fire, for these designing dema
gogues. They have no faith in the pro
fessions of men who have spent
half of their time in the beer gars
den and the other half in talking
polities. They know very well that
political reform cannot come
from men who have, for years,
been the intimate associates of tho
most corrupt political scalawags in
theState. "While they know that the
industrial classes are suffering from
many grievances, they cannot be
induced to look for relief to men
who have long since lost all public
confidence as political leaders.
Some good men have doubtless
been induced to join their organiza
tion under various pretences. To
them the action of the Trades As
sembly should be convincing proof
that they are in the wrong boat.
Instead of becoming Protectors of
Industry, they havo become Protec
tectors of Political bummerlsm, aud
no real mechanics or farmer can
possibly expect to gain anything
from such association.

Twenty-five thousand dollars in

Tho Labor Question in England.
The combined movement of agri
cultural lalmrcrsin any part of Eng
land to increase their wages and to
improve their condition is a new
thing under the sun, and it is more
remarkable in those comparatively
isolated and landlord ridden coun
ties of Suffolk, Norfolk, Cambridge
and Lincoln. In the middle and
manufacturing counties, where
the better informed work
ing classes, as mechanics
aud manufacturing laborers, might
exercise an influence over the farm
workmen, and where the railroad,
telegraph and press reach them, it
would not have been surprising to
see combined efforts of even the ag
ricultural class. But this move
ment in tho east of England, where
there is little contact with the rest
of the world, and where the people
have been hnrdly better than serfs
from the time of the Norman con
quest to this daj-, is truly astonish
ing. It shows in the first place that
the people, being goaded to desper
ation and having a glimmering of
the light of this nineteenth century,
are ready to assert their right to
live and not to starve amid the
wealth of the richest country in
Europe. However the movement
may terminate, at present it is un
doubtedly an incipient revolution
that must eventually change the so
cial and political character of Eng
land. Uncduea'ed as the mass of these
agricultural laborers of the east of
England are, they havo the sturdy
common sense and dogged coutage
of their Saxon ancestors. The peo
ple of the counties we refer to are
the nio-t purely Saxon of all Eng
land. They are of tho race and
stock of Shakespeare, Milton, Ba
con and Cromwell, and not of the
De Courc;.s and other Norman fam
ilies of "the aristocracy. Though
thev have been kept in darkness.
disfranehi-cd and bound to tho soil,
and their narrow localities like serfs
for centuries, there is still the latent
brain and love of independence of the
old Saxon. It only required the
influence of this enlightened age
to show their true character. The
j)oor welches who havo to live and
support a family ujwn two dollars a
week, or even less, have been taught
at lat to compare their situation
with that of tho luxurious farmers
and the landlords who roll in wealth.
Sutler they may, and suffer they
will in the unequal struggle in
which they aro engaged; but the
stubborn fact of their deplorable
poverty ami pauperism in the midst
of we-i'th cannot be eradicated.
The end must bo an ameliorative of
their mdttiun by the consent of the
so-calk-d upier clashes or a bloody
We .vi-h that these honest, hard
working and sturdy Anglo-Saxon
argicultural laborers of the eastern
counties of England could come to
thN co.mtry of freedom, cheap hums
ami vel! paid labor. No better
class of emigrants could come, and
we should welcome them as the
lest. It is of that stock mainly
that the foundation of the North
American colonies and this Re
public was laid. But how can
they come? They have no means.
They are about as powerless to
move from their villages, and tho
soil the till as the serfs of Russia
were. If our enterprisihg land
owners, capitalists, ana railroad
companies, would organize tho
means to bring them here, with a
system of emigration from the agri
cultural districts of England, both
this country aud these poor people
would be benefitted. At all events,
the agricultural laborers of England

people in this movement to improve

A treasure trove was discovered
in a very singular manner at old

three dollars more were found in the
same place. They had evidently
been brought up by the ants. Search
was made, and a small wooden box,
badly decayed, containing 180 gold
dollars, was found about a foot be

A French medical journal has
made an astounding statement in
reference to Mile. Croizette, who
acts the leading character in the
"Sphinx" at Paris. It asserts that
she poisons herself even,' evening in
the no famous dying scene. The
portion she swallows is actually
oNonous, and as a consequence,
the convulsions and spasms which
follow are genuine. This is tho
statement, and it further tells us
that immediately the drop-scene

Mr. P. J. Moore, of Centerville,

inch through its greatest transverse
diameter; is in shape a slightly flat
tened, oblong sphere, scooped in
one side, near the small end, in such
a jnamn'r as to form an edge, which
cuts glass as readily as a diamond.
The stone Is of a grayish white
color, is partially translucent, rough
on the surface, and floats on the
water with the bouyancy of a cork.
A short time ago parties prospect
ing for coal near Ionia, Neb., some

from Sioux Cit Iowa, discovered
smoke or steam issuing from one of

been continued at intervals since,
and It lias become tho absorbing
tope or interest In that region. The
different parties have penetrated
through the dirt and clay, and some
distance into the rock, the steam
and- boat continuing to increase as
they descended, compelling the
abandonment of the work several
times, The last prosppotore state
that noises were heard as of lime
stone breaking when in a burning
kiln. Investigation continues, but
asyot no satisfactory solution has
been reached, though there are
many surmises as to the cause.
On the 19th of July last, Mr.
Michael Collins, while engaged in
digging potatoes on the farm of T.
Talt, Esq., captured a number of
potato bugs and put them in an
empty bottle, closing the bottle to
prevent their escape. He placed
the bottle by a post on the ground,
making the remark that he "would
ascertain how long tho 'critters'
would live, anyhow." Tho sum
mer passed away and the winter
followed, bringing no thought of
the incarcerated bugs. Last week,
in passing, Mr. Collins picked up
the bottle. It contained the intact
though motionless forms of the potato-top
destroyers. In the caprice
of tho moment he took the bottle to
tho house, and held it over the fire.
Tmmenso was his astonishment on
perceiving the bugs tako to them
selves legs and walk. In a few min
utes the interior of the bottle was a
writhing mass of Coloradoes. Eight
months without food, oxposed to the
extremes of summer and winter,
and still living. This statement is
fully vouched for, and shows what a
foe the farmers and potatoes have to
contend against. Joliet (111.) Sen

(From the Chicago Tribune.)
George Francis Train is the living
example of the benefits arising from
abstaining from animal food. So
long as he indulged in pork and
beans, rare roast beef and mutton
chops, he wanted to be President
Dictator of America, aud had a han
kering after fame, notoriety, iopu
larity, etc. Some people wickedly
attributed Train's eccentricities to
insanity. But no; it was not that
George Francis Train was out of
ids head; it was that he indulged
in animal food. His ambition
to govern the country, his literary
career, ids speeches, his Fenianism,
were all caused by veal cutlets. Had
there never been a calf in the world,
his career would have been vastly
different. On the broad back of the
bovine race rests all the blame of
George Francis Train's mistakes, of
his many imprisonments, and his
commentary on the Bible.
The subtle juices of the
savory flesh passing into
George's brain were transmuted into
folly, into temporary lunacy, into
misdirected ambition, and absurd
oflb.tsto amelioriate the condition
of other camivora like himself.
Train got tipsy on hash. He has
ceased to eat anlua Ifood, and he is
now a sober man and sees the error
of his ways. The cause removed, the
effect has ceased. No more tendcr
loln,no more presidential campaigns,
no more Fenian raids. Train has
come to recognize that all he has
been hitherto aimimr at is vanitv.
and even vanity of vanities. So at
least he writes to the New Yoik
Sun, whose editor disturbed his
quiet dreaming on the wonders of
vegetable diet by informing his
readers that the Sheriff of
Douglas County, Neb., offered for
sale twenty of Train's farms
and valuable lots to pay an exe
cution for $3,500. Having gone
to the shades which no beef-caters
ever invade, he objects to being
called out of there. He would rest,
far removed from the world of
speech-making, book-writing ; of
the Bible, Fenians, John Bulls and
other bulls ; of courts, and lawyers
and presidents; of newspapers and
reporters, sheriffs and town lots, to
enjoy that privilege he will make
a compact, offensive and defensive,
with the newspapers. If they will
let him alone severely alone,
he promises never to speak again in
public, never publish another book
or write another letter to a newspa
per. Considering what a relief this
will be to the world at l&rge, It is to
