THURSDAY, MARCH 2, 1876.
A CHANGE OF BASE.
The republicans of Indiana have
taot only, in convention assembled,
nominated Morton for President, but,
an the person of Goodlove S. Orth,
advanced a gul ernatorial standard--
bearer, who has to run on a “rags
gnoney" platform. In add tion to this,
the anti-contraction party, which
■seemed at a discount outside of Ohio
and Pennsylvania, has made formida
ble progress even in the east, and bids
fair to become the most popular in
the country. When Wm. Allen was
running for governor in Ohio his
ideas were scouted by the Republi
cans and his defeat compassed by
their prodigious efforts- A cry for
the repeal of the resumption act as
cends vociferously on all sides, and
Wm. Allen stands to day the most
sagacious man in all the land, as well
as the most deserving of a success he
"was cheated out of by a people who
did not recognize their own interests,
as clearly as they were recognized by
the old statesman of Ohio.
THE RECONSTRUCTED CABINET.
Where there is so much smoke
chere must be some fire. Washing
ton dispatches generally agree that
Bristow will not remain long in the
cabinet, and one of the latest is em
phatic in stating that the President
has said in the past three days that
Bristow shall not remain in the cab
inet. and such is his intense bitterness
that, although it is not stated how he
will be got riil of, it is certain that he
The schedule of the reconstructed
Cabinet now stands as follows:
Secretary of State—Hamilton Fish.
Secretary of the Treasury—Zacha*
Postmaster General Alexander
Attorney General—George H Wih
Secaetary of the Interior —Alphon*
no Taft, of Ohio.
Minister to England Edward
It is suggested that there may be
some change in this schedule.
THE WORLD’S OPINION.
The New York World would nail
the democratic streamer to New York’s
masthead. It says: “There is no
present reason to doubt that Ohio
or Pennsyluania can be recovered
from the republican party this fall.
There is no reason to doubt that New
York will stand fast in the democratic
faith of hard money, free trade and
home rule. The democracy can lose
Ohio and Pennsylvania, yet win the
presidential election without a shad
ow of doubt- Nobody with an ounce
of sense supposes that New York can
be lost by the democracy yet the
presidential election saved.”
The estate of the late Charlotte
Cushman is valued at SOOO,OO. This
is a very large sum to accumulate by
personal efforts on the stage without
resorting to theatrical management,
but it must be considered that for
many years Miss Cushman has not
played for less than SSOO a night, and
that she sometimes received more,
A Washington special states that
action of the National Democratic
Committee in selecting St. Louis is
regarded as a victor}' for the Hen
Law is an expensive luxury in
Brooklyn. Mr. Beecher stated before
the advisory council last week that
that the expenses of the late trial on
his side amounted to SIIB,OOO.

San Francisco now manufactures
fire crackers instead of importing them
from China. In two factories with
Slo,ooo capital invested and using
raw material to the amount of §7,500,
fire crackers of the value of §30,000
were turned out last year at an ex
pense for labor of $5,000.

The late Eeverdy Johnson leaves
twelve children, about fifty grand

wedding on November 16th, 1869,
