That old confederate democratic ma jority is the stone which poor old Missouri has to roll up the hill every election to her everlasting trouble and discomfort. Oiw dispatches from Washington announce a change of department commanders. General Howard is to relieve General Crook as commander of the department of the PJatto , and General Crook is ordered to Arizona , whuro ho will bo engaged in aotivo duty in sup * pressing the hostile Apaches. General - oral Crook is thu most successful In- Jinn fighter in the army , and thu is doubtless the reason why ho has been designated to relieve General \Yilcox in the campaign against the Apaches. The change will cause much regret among the citizens of Nebraska and NYyqniiDg , nnd especially right hero in Omaha where General Crook has inado so many warm friends. THE SCAT OF WAR. The retreat of Arab ! Boy And hi army from Alexandria to the Egyptia atrokghcld near Cairo , although doubl less foreseen among the possibilities ! will force A halt in the British prc gramme. Admiral Seymour bombarded Aloj nntlria nftor a peremptory demand fo an unconditional aurrendor , to re tnliato for the massacre of Uritis' for the British flR. Fnrtho subjects , to check Iho hoslil demonstrations of the Egypliai army , and to enforce rospcc than that ho haa no authority Ho haa a von god the murder of Brit ish subjects and the insult to his flag and now must await and cannot pur sue the insurgents unless the groa powora , and especially Turkey , ehal rtqucst England to continue the war , complete the conquest and either oc oupy Egyptian territory with British troops or reinstate the khcdivo. The projected destruction of the Sue ? canal by n dotatchcd force of Arab ! Boy's army ia not likely to provo n BUCCCBS , fis long as the British war vessels command the approaches of the canal to UH entire length. The sudden closing of the canal by the British may , however , com plicate the relations between England and other European nations. The SUCK canal 1ms boon rocognizcd as n neutral waterway that is to be open at all times to the ships of all nations , and when England took forcible pos session she did so at the risk of invit ing a general European war. The whole civilized world will watch the progress of events in Egypt with great anxiety for the next few days. ALEXANDRIA. Cahlo advices from the scat of war in Efjypt announce the complete de struction cf Alexandria by explosives thrown into the city by the British ; hot , and the firing of buildings by [ honnny of Arabi Bey btforo its r4- , reat. The ancient city of Alexandria , 'oundcd 3 U B. 0. , by Alexander the Glrcat , wnn located twelve miles west of one of the mouths of the Nile. It extended a distance of fifteen miles from the Mediterranean on the north to Lake Mnreotia on the south. The principal thoroughfare was 200 feet wide and ninny miles in length. This street was lined with magnifi cent houses , temples and public buildings , the most noted of which was the palace of the Ptolemye. To give ati idea of the magnificence of the city * it1 need only bo stated that the Caliph Omar , on its capture A. D. 040 , boasted that ho had taken a city containing four thousand palaces , 4,000 baths and 400 theatres and places of amusement. The building o ( Cairo in iG9 ) , and the discovery of the route via the Capo of Good Hope , brought about a general decline ol commerce , and little was again hoard of the city until the present century. The modern Alexandria stands on what was the island of Pharos , now a peninsula. The prin cipal government buildings arc on the peninsula. The ancient city was situated on the muin land nd- jacont to the modern town and the extent of the ruins that still exist at test its former groatnces. Formerly Alexandria was surrounded by a strong turrettod wall with extensive outworks , but a portion of these walls hud boon destroyed to make way for public improvement ) ) . In the modern Alexandria the stroeta , especially the Turkish quarters , were narrow , irregular and filthy , and the houses ill built. The quartoi inhabited by Europeans was in much butter condition. Among the prin cipal public buildings nro the palacu of the pasha , the naval arsenal , custom house , bourse , two theaters and a number ut mosques , churches , con vents , etc. Of the ancioht city vary little remains visible. Among the best known relics were Oleopartra'a Needles and Pompoy'u Pillar. Sincn the completion of the Suez canal Alexandria has been the center of steam communication between Kuropo and India , und assumed quito an importance , At one time the ancient city of * Alexandria contained C00000 inhabi tants. At the beginning of this cen tury the number did not exceed 0,000. In 182D this had increased to 10,000 ; in 1810 to 00,000 , and at the last census in 1871 the population is put down at 20'JC02 , of whom nearly 54,000 were foreigners. If the ratio of increase h&a kept up during the last ton years Alexandria must have contained over 300,000 before the bombardment , of whom two-thirds at least must have boon natives and Arabs. It would be impossible to conceive the Buffering of a population that is BO suddenly driven out by shot , shell and fire , nor can an esti mate bo formed now as to the num ber who perished by the bombardment - bardmont and the missacro that followed it. It ia certainly u terribly destructive struggle in which another bloody chapter haa been added to the history ot u city ihut has witnessed the rise and fall of empires and boon the scene of con * quests and triumphs of some of the greatest military horooa of the world. WE have purposely refrained from inculpating Congressman Valentino in the iufmous fraud through which the attempt was made to secure a seat in congress for an additional representa from Nebraska , because wo di not bolioyo that gentleman capable o being & party to an act which , if ex posed , would call for hU prompt ox pulaion from congress. Informatioi of the most reliable cha.rao.tcr roachei us yesterday that Mr. Valentino him self was the principal victim of tha outrageous imposition'a fact that w < hope ho will make plain in cortaii quarters in Washington without needless loss delay. Jfcrald. It is too bad that Mr. Valentin' ' should bo the principal victim of tha outrageous imposition , Valentine who backs Dr. Schwonck as an hones man , would of course bo horrified a the idea of palming off a bogus state mcnt about our census on congress According to Valontino'a clerk , Dr Schwonck was sent to Lincoln ox prcssly "to induce Secretary Alexan dcr to draw a certificate , so that il would appear affirmatively that the bogim census returns were taken it : 1872. 1872.When When Valentino wanta to putthrougl ; an honest job ho always flolects Dr Jchwonck. But why did not Vulcn ino , who has represented Nubroskn n congress three years , detect the raud before ho presented those bogus documents to congress ? Ho certainly snow , or ought to have known , that ho population of Nebraska in 187i was not double the national census re- urns of 1870. Ho had boon rehears- ng the points of every conceivable claim for contingent congressmen or two years bcforo ho presented the > ogus rotuin that Dr. Schwonck had > rought on to Washington. Ho hould not bo allowed to plead the iaby act now and claim that ho was ho victim of an outrageous impost- ion , which , in fact , ho hud helped to oncoct , and sought to carry through ongrcsa. Wo know thut the Herald ia very nxioua to help Mr. Valentino out of lis sad plicht. It may succeed in ullitig the wool ever the eyes of some omocratic members of congress by eprcsonting Valodtino as an out- aged victim , when ho is notoriously ap.iblo of perpetrating any imposition o servo his political ends. It will iko a good deal of explaining to make Valentino's constituents boliuvo that o was engaged in an honest deal hen ho know that Dr. Schwonck was elected for the errand. SOUTHERN INDEPENDENTS. The vote at all the primaries in loorgia show distinctly the election f Alexander Stephana oa governor. This ought to clean the dust off the yea of the adminiatration and all re publicans as to the real character of ho independent movement in the outhern states. It ia the hardest hing in the world to make the north properly understand the south. They lover did before the war until the hot shot that broke the flagstaff at Sum- .or woke them. It ia just like this now about the independent party ; lioro. The Muhona movement and KB success was n great misfortune to the republican party in the country , not in its simple 'net , but in ita influences. Mahono cd the country to believe that there waa a largo liberal element in the democratic party that would be strong enough to prefect the negro vote nnd republican elector in general at the palls , provided that the republican vote was cast to put them in power , and the administration would give it all the federal patronage. In other words , the Muhono movement was merely a Bchomo by which certain ambitious democrats would agree to accept all the republican vote , all the offices , federal and state , and to pay for this the protection of'tho republi can in hia bare right to put in his bal lot and have it counted for a liberal instead of a Bourbon democrat. It was simply a confession that the republican party could not pro tect ita vote ia the south and had to buy enough democrats to give him that protection And oven with this price , Virginia is the only state whore the trade waa effected and there Ma hone haa boon recently beaten. Geor gia waa the next ntato and the admin- istruti in relied on Stephens who re ceived the most touching demonstra tions of republican sympathy around hia semi-occasional death bed , This time ho not only goes homo to rest in the G overnor's chair , but ho kills the independent movement. There is one reflection that ought to settle this matter forever in the public mind. Of what service is any independent movement in any South- Btato that doea not carry that state for the republican ticket in a general election i Has it over done that , and will it ever do sol Does oven Mahono promise that ) 'Wait and see. All this encouragement of so-ovlloil inde pendence ia just trilling with the right to voto. Of course it should bo en couraged for iU own sake , but the way to protect the republican majority in the South is to protect it. The independent movement of the Mahone order has come to Ita ex pected end in South Carolina. Maj , Ij. W. U Blair had for some time been orgonizing an independent movement - mont on the greenback doctrine , and was to have been its candidate for governor this fall. At the coroner's inquest at Caraden , South Carolina , on thu 7th inst. , Dr. A. A. Moore te tified as follows : "I examined the dead body of Maj , L. W. U. Blair , and found tivo bullet wounds. One shot passed through the heart , fracturing the fifth rib. Another passed through the stomach A third passed through the lower lob of the right lung , fracturing the eight ! rib. The fourth passed under thi right shoulder blade , and the fiftl ft as in the loft cido. Thesn wound ; caused the death of M&j , Blair. " Maj. Blair was a gallant confederate ate soldier , and had been a domocral until ho dared to disagree with the Bourbons and raise the standard ol independent political opinion , Mit. SrniNOEK , of Illinois , haa * kind of chattel mortgage with the clause of possession in it , in his Dis trict , It matures every two years , and all ho has to do is to foreclose. Is there no way of inducing him tc quit ? AMERICAN PROSPERITY. Compliments of "Tho London Tlmos" on the Miitoilul Progress of the United States. I nJon Times. If tlicro were no direct evidence forthcoming of the realityand rapidity of material progress in the United Spates , it would bo found in the sin gular abaonco of excitement nnd even of movement in American politics. It ia not , of course , to bo understood that the political game fails to bo car ried on with vigor and keenness by the professional playors. There have boon lately prolonged and violent struggles in the house of representa tives butwoun the republican majority and thu democratic minority , and the "llilibustcring" contests over some contested elections show that the cloture - uro in its most rigorous form does not avail to prevent scandalous scones and waste of public time when the party in power and the opposition have not a practical basis of agreement in the conduct of business. But the interest of the nation at largo in these dis putes is evidently of the slight est and most superficial charac ter. It is felt , apparently , imong the mass of sensible and patri otic Americans that if the politicians must have something to do it ia just ia well they should worry ono another 3vor elections and appointments to of- Sco instead of dealing , from the parisian - : isian point of viuw , with questions of ladonul importance. No doubt , there ire divisions of opinion and possibly icarchings of heart in relation to ques- ions of the latter class among ; houghtful people in the United States is in other countries , but there is no Icsiro to have them opened up at present. There is , indeed , a steady , .hough silent , determination to keep politics in the well-worn paths , and .ro . can hardly bo mistaken in aaaum- ng that the grounds of this are to bo liscoverod in a rational apprehension ; hut changes , ovun for the butter , in Institutions , laws , and customs may nterrupt the How of that astoniah- ng tide of material prosperity that las been running ever higher and lighor on the other side of tlio Atlan tic for thro.i years past. The wonderful wealth producing power of the United States defies and iota at naught the grave drawbacks of i mischievous protective tariff , and. has already obliterated , almost wholly , the traces of the greatest of modern civil wars. What is especially remarkable - able in the present development of American energy and ancceas is its wide and equable distribution. North and south , cast and wesf , on the shores of tlio Atlantic and the Pacific , along-tho chain of the great lakes , ' in the valley of the Mississippi , and on the coasts of the Gulf of Mexico , the creation of wealth and the increase ot population are signally exhibited. It is quito true , as haa been shown by the recent apportionment of population in the houiio of reprcscntatiuos , that some sections of thu Union have ad vanced , relatively to the rest , in an extraordinary and unexpected degree , But this does not imply "that the states which have gained no addi tional representatives or have actually - lost some have been stationary or have rcctdiid. The filet is that the present tide of prosperity has risen so high that it haa overflowed all barriers , haa filled up the backwaters - waters , and established something liku an approach to uniform success. The older aottlomenta , which in their own time , and not BO long ago , were the wonder of the world , have boon outahono by the newer communities , but they have Buffered no loss oicjpt that a largo ono , it may bu admitted whichis ) measured by sentiment. It is worthy of remark that the three main sections of the union excluding the Pacific states , which are still in their infancy are at present almost equal in political power , as cilculatod iu the distribution of representation in the canaus of 1880. The Now En- ( land stotea and the middle states Maine , Now Hampshire , Vermont , Massachusetts , Rhode Island , nnd Conntcticut , Now York , Now Jersey , Ptnnsylvania , Delaware and Mary , land have in the aggregate 102 mem- bora in the ho'wo of representatives. The southern stolen , substantially the lection which acceded in order to ro- list the breaking up of the slave lyatom in 1801 , including Virginia , North and South Carolina , Georgia , Florida , Alabama , Kentucky , Ten- lessee , Missouri , Arkansas , Missis- lippi , Louisiana and Texas , have , in , ho aggregate , 110 members. The rostern otates proper West Vir- ; inia , Ohio , Indiana , Illinois , Iowa , Michigan , Wisconsin , Nebraska , Mm- lesota , and Kansas have in the ag- ; regato 104 merabow. The firat BOO- ion , the northern states , have neither the southern states ; ainod nor lost ; iavo gained fourteen members , and vestorn states sixteen membora. It a not impossible that early in the icxt century the remaining Bcction of he union the Pacifio states may iavo attained to on equality with the est. At present , however , this BOO- iou has only nine members in con- TOSS , and includes only four states Jalifornia , Oregon , Novadi , and Col- irado , The development of the western tates or , speaking more uonorally , if the states of the Mississippi valley -is the dominant fact in the hiaher loliticiof the American union. But ta clleota have , to a certain extent , icon forecasted. A more significant toint is the statistics of the congroa- ional representation u the evidence if the .revival of the south. Of the hirteen southern states not ono loses , representative in the now appor- ionment , and only four are station. , ry At the close of the civil war few would have predicted that in thi present political rearrangement , whil Maine , New Hampshire and Vet mont have to submit each to a reduction tion of their _ representation in con press , Virginia , North Carolina , Soutl Carolina and Georgia receive an iu crease. It is not by any moans sur prising that the southwestern state should make subtantial rfains , foi these , and especially Texas , wore , to i great extent , unsettled at the date o the war , and their vast natural resources sources were certain to bo atimulatet and opened up to external ontorprisi on the restoration of peace , The oldoi states of the south , however , won supposed to bo altogether dependent on the system of slavery for theii prosperity and political importance. The disasters of the confederacy were believed alike by northerners and pouthernors , by Americans and for eign obaervera to have given a fatal blow to the social center of the Reces sion. Within the paat ten years thie haa boon triumphantly disproved , and the fact is placed in evidence by the readjustment of the federal represen tation. The Bouthcrn states huvo prospered under n system of free la bor , without resigning political power into the hands of the negro frredmen , That the problem has been success fully solved , in spite of difficulties within and without , bears testimony to the political capacity of the people , and affords Rood ground for hope that in the United States the future of the negro may bo rescued from the mis- chiovoua interference of professional and doma- philanthropists self-seeking - fjogues. SABBATH VANDALS. Bum , July 10 , 1882. ro the Editor ol tha lice. The arMclo in THE BEE of July 7th HI the Sunday excursion to Oakland iraa meant , it seems , to servo as a re ply or header off to an article on 'Liberalism and " Sabbath Breaking" n The Blair Pilot of aamo date , vhich the author evidently know was loming. Just how ho know it remains A bo explained , and so to ward off rotn libcraliats throughout the state , ho lightning of facta charged up in Fho Pilot , ho qoos down in haato upon lis "pioua'j knees into the filth of mblic rumor of other yeara for omothing at least as black and foul is "liberalism , " and then hurries off o THE DAILY EKE , BO as to got out ivor thu state ahead of the Weekly 'ilot , and what ho brings up from the ilth of public rumor is , as to clmrac. cr and stench , about equal to true ibcralistn nt heart , ua the following acts prove : A Chicago daily paper , in giving the > roceodinga of thu National Liberal Joaguc , says , "Mr. Leland , of Now fork , read a report on the progress of iberalism which ho has sent totho In. ernational League in Brussels , and nentioned as signs ( of progress ) the ibcral tone of the secular newspaper , ho lapses from virtue of some minis- .era and Sunday school aupermton- lents , Howard Crosby's calm view of temperance , and the growth ot so- : iahst parties. " Hence , wore the things raked up by THE BEE article of July 7 true ? Then what ? They would simply bo signs of liberalism progressing in other years. At the same national league of lib erals , "ex-Rev. Chainoy ( another tropy of progressing liberalism ) , spoke of the noooBuity of educating the youth to liberal viowa. To this end ho wanted a lari o amount of liberal literature circulated. " Now , in view of the above utter ances , how full of meaning the follow ing verbatim copy of a congressional committee's report which I have in print : Mr. Bicknoll , from the committee on the revision of the laws , submitted the following report : The committteo on the revision of laws , to whom waa referred the peti tion of Robert U. Ingeraoll and othore , praying for the repeal of sections 1,785 , 3,878 , 3,893 , 5,389 nnd 2,491 of the revised statutes , have had the same under consideration , nnd have heard the petitioners at lonqth. In the opinion of your committee , the postoltico waa not established to carry instruments of vice , or obsonco writ ing , indecent pictures , or loud booktj. Your committee recommend , there fore , that the prayer of thu said peti tion bo denied. To the above I add this very signifi cant fact. A Mr. Bennett of Now York , an associate of R. G. Ingor- jell , was imprisoned a few years since For circulating vile literature. But , if they can't got thu law repealed , protecting virtue and Christianity , they are going to try to undermine it , for said the Ex-Ilov. Chainoy , "the ) nly way to dispose of Christianity is ; o tear it up root and branch. This : au't bo done directly , it must bo lone by education of the people ; for mco get the people on the liberal side , ind the laws to the contrary will bo a lead letter. " ( For kind of education ICQ above committee's report. ) At this same national liberal league ho Chicago daily says , ' 'Bomo enter- iriaing book sellers of Iowa exposed 'or ' sale a largo number of photographs ) f eminent free-thinkers and their vorks , popularly supposed to bo sup- iressod ; and it's a matter of surprise imong some that the city and govern * nent officials allowed the traflic. " Wo leave the reader to make hia iwn comments on all the above and ! raw his own cor.c'utions. ' Now the above facts and others the iberalists of Blair know we have eaaon to believe were coming to the lublio in lost week's Pilot hence THE JEE article to present in the moat pub ic manner something apparently as tad without the church as facta provo Iberalism to bo at heart , and they iavo succeeded admirably. True 'liberalism" thrives best on uoral faith. Its brain can't conceive nything but moral filth , for the rca- on that ita stomach won't take in any hing but moral iilth , ita lungs won't ireatho anything but moral tilth , ita icart won't circulate anything but uoral filth. It is the happiest when t'a the foulest. It's gladdest when it tinka the moat and any man or huroh that dares to lift the mask rom these moral canccr-plantcra may ook to be smeared with their foul lime. Of the charges made against two of Maira former ministers I have only his to say ; When the author of that rticlo gives his name , and names the niniators iu both cases , wo shall pro bably kuow how much there ia in h charges. If wholly true they are to bo r < gardod according to the above Mi Leland aa evidences of liberaliat still progressing , and don't you forge it. Now how well nil the obovo fact harmonize with the "pious" profea aiona of the first BEX articlo. How much of the "holy incense o heaven's breezes" ia found in th breathings of Chainoy or Leland or ii the petition of Ingeraoll praying t < have the U , S. law changed for a vil purptao And how _ nuch "culture and practi cal rejigion" ( claimed by the man foi hia idt ) can possibly come fron efforts like Itigersoll'a J And whal queer "laito" the "good , pious pooph ef Blair who Ikcked to the Sundaj excursion train" must have to cnjoj Sabbath with the followers of those who are praying Congress to upon wide the doora ot the postoffico thai they may circulate vile literature foi the purpose of "educating the youni to libtr.il viowa. " When wo first took up the pen nzainat Sabbath excuisiotia wo said tc liberalism , in thought , "Stand and unfold yourself" ( shakes ) , and it'a do ing so beyond all expectation. The church will sco by and by that the "cordiality and respect extended to spiritual guidoa" by liberahsta ia but the charming look of the serpent , and that the toff nicklos and dimes they cast into the church treasury is intended by thu givers as husn money every time , and the sooner the church so ebtimatoB the "cordiality end , ro- spcct" of liboralista bahl and BO treats it , the bettor , evidently , for the youth of our land. True , there are in every community men and women not church members whose cordiality and respect we appreciate - prociato as gold men and women who have neither the look of the ser pent about them nor the poison of the serpent on their tongues. They who want to spend their Sab * baths with "dogs , vipers and mon keys" ( as Cook , the scientific scout tarma libcralisle ) , passing the houis in "dancing and boor drinking , " are at iborty , uf course , to do as they please , as waa Satan at liberty to do is ho pleased before ho lost his angel laturo and his angel home.
