13 M&rahal Sachet'a rigorous and extor tionate administration in Valencia waa so pleasing to Napoleon that be con tarred on him the title of Duke of Albu fera, "with rich dominions attached to it in the kingdom ef Valencia." And on this new kingdom, includicg the duke dom of Albuf era, Napoleon bestowed 200 million franca, to be raised from differ ent parts of Spain. (Alison, voL X, pp 101-2.) These examples of robbery were con fined to the continent of Europe, and are given merely as a few illustrations of the general policy, inseparable from the financial system adopted by Napol eon, "whose financial record is full of valuable lessons for his latest biogra pher." I will now give a single specimen illus tratinji Napoleon's robberies farther from home. The reader of history will remember that the French republican assembly, early in the progress of mo lution, abolished slavery m the French West Indies colony of St. Domingo; and made the manumitted blacks citizess of the French r...

I would notice other puerile, insin cere and absurd objections to the old silver dollar, and an ample currency, for one involves the other. Because we can't have a sufficient paper cur rency based on gold alone, and we have not yet outgrown the Idea that all paper-currency must be based on the metals. Again: In opening our mints to the silver of the world, we do not engage to buy an ounce of silver. It would be on the principle of custom flour mills. The owner of wheat would take fcia grain to the mill and have it ground Into flour. The miller would return to him the pro duct of his own wheat, less the toll for the work of converting the wheat Into flour. So it would be with our mints. Both silver and gold, would be received for coinage, and he who brought silver bars would return with the same bars, except...

Allow a Democrat Editor Advocate: Allow a demo crat, who has so far stuck to Clavel&nd, and hopes to be enabled to do bo here after, to make an irquiry with reference to the present and future of the party. Do I understand the friends of the president to intimate that if the free sil ver idea should rule in the next demo cratic national convention, they mean to bolt? la it possible that I read correctly to that effect? And they threaten this already a year in advance. In all friendship and with due solicitude for the welfare of the party. Let me re mind them that that would be repeat ing Jeff Davis & Co. at Charleston, and remember he and his got the worst of that Southern democrats became bo wedded to the interest of a class that they couldn't break away.

When Gertrude reached home again, a message awaited her to meet her doting father in the library. Thither she went, her mind distracted with anxiety for the safety of the wanderer from whom she had just parted, perhaps forever; while Sydney's voice still sounded in her ear and Sydney's kiss still lin gered upon her lips. Thus she came into her father's presence to be shocked by the information that Dobbins Rakestraw was desirous of contracting for her hand, and was urgent. With the utmost ab horrence depicted upon her features and with her hand3 held up as if to shut o...

of way for a man to appear before the public at best, not by constant effort, bring himself at last into communion with these higher beings t My dear byd ney, to me this has long ceased to be a matter of speculation. I know know by actual experience that man may hold converse with immortal. " "What! Is it true, then, what the people say? that you" "No, my dear Sydney. I practice no black art. But, by an upright life, I try to keep in touch with the higher and purer beings who are about us all, and yearn for our companionship while we repel them by our incredulity and our foolish fears. Not a black art, but the cultivation of the truest friend ships mortals can enjoy that is what, thank God, I have learned to practice." "It is mysterious," said Sydney, in amazement at this unsuspected phase of the Hermit's character. " What you say about the graduated continuity of species sounds reasonable; but as Hume has ob served in treating of idealism, an argument may be unanswerable and unconv...

1S9S. panio was known and spoken of everywhere at the time as the na tional banker's panic Its object was to create public sentiment against the silver law of 1890, and to coerce con gress to repeal it We cannot pass by in this review what the anthor calls his "hammer test." This he illustrates by taking a silver and a gold dollar, each worth 100 cents, and striking them with the hammer so as to obliterate the gov ernment stamp. He then states the valne of the silver dollar as 50 cents, while that of the gold dollar is still stated as 100 cents. This is not true. A $10 gold coin contains 258 grains of standard gold. It ia a legal ten der for $10 for any debt or obliga tion either pnblic or private. Strike it with the hammer and obliterate the government stamp and it is worth in the market as a commodity $9288 and is not legaj tender for anything. Furthermore, it conld not be sold in the market as a commod ity at any price without a test being made of its purity. We mention this hamm...

1835. The Value of Truth. Truth is the most potent factor in progress, and to be guided by her light reason must be free. As long as a dif ference of opinions causes those hold ing them to manifest a spirit of intol erance reason is not free. ' As long as the intellect is encumbered by present opinions reason is not free: nor can anyone recognize truth unless preju dice is mastered and the mind free to reject present conclusions for new found facts. This is the philosophy of truth and progress. The success of the future must be built upon the fail ure of the present, and those who are realy desirous of benefiting mankind, untiringly and unselfishly give the re suit of their thought and investiga tions to the world and rest content with having done so, leaving the result to time. The great leveler of opinions, as well as people's- progress, has been achieved by the noble philosophers of earth who never fenced a thought or idea but left mankind to judge their works by their merits and...

MAY 29 CONCERNING KANSAS. NOTES. Two Rxks county girls, egad 11 sad 18, have planted and are cultivating 115 acres of corn. Any drouth that will coma along and hurt their crop is too mean to talk about. Dr. Nannie Stevens, of Wiohita, wants a divorce. Her husband denies her charges of mistreatment and non-sap-port, and says she neglected him in her devotion to women's clubs. , J. M. Hagaman, editor of the .Con cordia Bladp, is under arrest for the pub lication of an artiolo about James A. Troutman during the last campaign. Uncle Sam has been informed that the article was obscene. The State Banters' association held itr manual meeting and banquet in Topeka last week. Their program provided for a "diaouaBion of the silver question" but the disousaion was carefully avoided. How to collect interest and prevent overdrafts were mora interesting sub jscta.

1S25. o which ia not as unpleasant to talk about as it is to dwell in., It should be kept running in good shape, because if the governor should get what the law pre scribes for such cases as his, he mar yet become an inmate of that institution. Maybe Warden Chiae realizes that fact. The warden does not depend altogether on the state treasury for money to run the institution, as all otherjwardana did. He makes it pay its way most of the time. He is now paying expenses with legitimate receipts, and says ha will soon be able to turn a balance over to the state. 0! course the redeemers will not stand this if they can stop it, and the warden may as well expect to get notice of removal just as soon as the investiga ting committee gets ready to report. Stealing at the penitentiary has been too much neglected during the past two years to suit the average redeemer. The place would be worth thousands of dol lars to Leland & Merrill's corruption fund.

Napoleon's military robberies- and brigandage were so important a part of Lb "financial record" that I call atten tion to a further discussion of them. And as he was "one of the men of su perior intelligence in his generation," I will quote freely from his own state ments on the subject. His financial record is so "full of valuable lessons" that it cannot be studied too thoroughly and carefully. When contemplating the invasion of a country against which he had no shadow of grievance, he first consid ered its available wealth which might be appropriated; and if deceived in ul timate results, he wa3 not slow to make complaint. He was somewhat deceived in Egypt. lie said it was a fertile country, rich in the products of the Eoil, but without money, "not even enough to pay my troops." I...

11 1835 lesa than 482,000 men and 80,000 horses had traversed Prussia in its whole ex tent, in the first six months of 1812, and that more than one-half of this immense force had been quartered for above three months in its unhappy provinces. By the convention of Feb ruary 24, 1812, the furnishings made for its' support were to be taken in part payment of the arrears, still amounting to nearly 100 millions of francs, which remained unpaid, of the great military contribution of 640 mil lions levied on Prussia after the battle of Jena. But though the French au thorities with merciless rapacity, en forced the new requisitions, they never could "be brought to state them, in terms of the treaty, as a deduction from the old ones.
