Mr. Hknky Ueohge, who, two years ago, received sixty odd thousand votes as the labor candidate for Mayor of New York, uow says: ' American workingmeu have beeu de? luded into a belief in the protective theory as much by democratic cowardice as by the interested advocacy of the protected mo nopolists.

SA.T?R' AY EVENING. june ig. Strange Action.?A wonderful sight may be witnessed on the premises of Mr. James Graham, of this place, which is that of a young rooster hatched in February last earring for a brood of chickens with the self sacrificing watchfulness of a mother. The chickens were hatched by an unnatural par? ent, who left them as soon &b they came in? to the world, The little rooster seeing their destitute condition took them under his charge.

MONDAY EVENING, JUNE 13. During thk debate on the army appro priatioa bill in the U. S. House of Repre? sentatives last Saturday, Mr. Randall said tbat "science had so advanced that had the last fortification bill become a law the money would have been absolutely wasted. For twenty years we had waited for the Ord nance Department to make a gun tbat they dare fire. We ?hould invite private manu fucmrers to co operate in the supply of tbe necesaary guns. Why not invite them to supply ten, twelve or sixteen inch gunB un? der specified conditions? The government couid not make a gun of fourteen, sixteen or tw?nty inch calibre, yet private firms stood ready to furnish them." In these words tbeie is a solid chunk of wisdom. The truer and better plan of democratic government would be to abolish all the government workshops, which are run at great expense and chiefly for the benefit of the party in power, and put out the work at contract. U der tbe present system the government in a competi...

A-LTSXAISTPRIA.. TUESDAY EVENING, JUNE 19. The New York Sun says : "The liberal policy pursued toward colored citizens by the national administration since 18S4 has supplemented the acts of the democratic Governors of Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Jersey, and Ohio. It is now reasona? ble for the democratic party to expect a fair share of the cdored vote." The last sen? tence of this remark shows that the Sun is as wrong on the race question as it is on that of the taritl'. Every body familiar with colored people knows that it is not reasona? ble for the democratic party to expect a fair share of the colored vote, and no such man does expect any such thing. An insignifi? cant fewcoiorcd men,"apostates lor the price of (.heir apostacy," may vote the democratic ticket, but the combined iclluence of ignor anee, prejudice and fear of their own race, will, in the next, as in past elections, make the colored vote practically solid for the re? publican nominee.
