The democratic party is preparing (or another "campaign of intellect." Thia statement is based on the (net that democratic and ao-uulled independent pa- pers, edited by democrats, are continu- ally harping about the tariff. It is next to impossible to read a democratic papor without running afoul of from one to several items informing its readers that the people are complaining of their "oppressive burden" of the tarilT. This ia generally followed by the usual mooagrown arguments calculated to show that nil kinds of tariff amounts to taxation. The tariff on glassware is now hold up as an ex- ample of tho horrors of a protective tariff. They call upon congress to re- duce the duty 20 per cent, and thus relieve the people. Now the facts are that glassware was never so cheap aa it now. The quality was never so good aa now, and it is hard to see where the burden lies, unless it is in the brains of our overburdened democratic editors. It is time enough for these gentlemen to complain for the people when the people request them to do so, otherwise it is incumbent on them to show that the tariff has advanced prices on any manufactured articles manufactured in this country and not cheapened them. Until then their cry will reach an in- credulous constituency. fKUELTY TO AMJI.AI.S. The man who can wantonly abuse a dumb brute, is certainly, to say the least, a small-souled individual. It ia a common thing to see on the streets of Dec-atur, as well as many other cities, poor, half-fed and crippled horses and toiling away at loads which are too heavy (or era ui their weak condition. These Animals are placed by their mas- torsin some by-street or alley in the sun with but little provender, and allowed to stand for hours, a prey to flies and other Insects. On lust Friday the police reported that a horse (ell on West Main street from sheer exhaustion. These thing! occur so frequently that they de- mand the attention of humanitarians. This {paper understands that in Decatnr wo have a society (or the prevention of cruelty to animals. This society ought to be more vigilant in these matters even to the employment, i( necessary, of puid agents. If it ia without funds the good people of Decutur we fell satisfied would contribute the sum necessary to carry out this much needed protection to animals. Tho police too, we believe, are inclined with the proper encourage- ment to give much assistance. Indeed, they have already demonstrated their willingness to do so. Let those who are recognized as leaders in this matter move at once. reduction o( doty on k what it most, providing a tariff Is tax wit alleges. Gall b already on the free list. THE Herald does not have courage enough to make the assaults upon THE DESPATCH it has tho disposition to make, would make, if it thought it could do so profitably. On the oilier hand, the roviifg editor of that paper has placed himself on the level of a bushwhacker by indulging in tirades and misstato- ments TIIK DRJIPATCII. lie is now engaged on the streets in explain- ing away the fact, that an order (or 200 extra copies of Tile Deai'ATcn was sent from Monticello week. Ho states that these copies were sent (or the purpose of deceiving the public, and to swell the edition of this paper. TIIK has hereto- fore.made no note of tho fact, and could not in fairness be charged with any such intention. Thd facts are, that an order was received Friday night for 200 extra copies of THE SATLHIMY DESPATCH. The order was filled in a business way and the papers have been paid for. That is all there is of it. We invite the editor of the Herald, if he has anything to say concerning us in the future, to conic out in the col- umns of his pajier and say it like a man. We are not here to make a mouth-to- uouth contest with him in tho streets and alleys of Decatiir. The statement that he does not purpose to advertise tbe new paper by mentioning it in the columns. of The Herald is stale and decidedly childish. TIIK DESPATCH is now read every morning by people than The Herald. This that the daily circulation of THE DESPATCH exceeds that of Tho Herald both in the city and in the country. Will The Herald deny it? Foraker is having it all hia own way in Ohio. He will be elected governor by a majority greater than the republicans have cast in that state (or many yean. He will also in own triumph see a republican legislature elected that will send a republican to tbe-UaiUd-Ktates senate in place of "Coal'Qir who bought his way into trial body from the democratic legislature in as hod carrier to the democratic party .calls upon congress taredoee tbe duty on glass 20 per cent rbes reived He you want the mouth of the roving editor of the Herald to go off ask him about Tim DESPATOM. It le equal to dropping a niofcel in the slot. AMONG OUR NEIGHBORS.

There has been discovered iu tha forests of India a strange plant which possesses to a very high degree astonishing magnetic power. The band which breaks a leaf from it receives immediately a shock equal to that which is produced by tbe conductor of an induction coil. At a distance of six motors a magnetic needle is affected by it, and It will be quite deranged if brought near. The energy of this singular influence varies with tha hour of the day. All powerful about S o'clock in the afternoon, it is unuulled (luring the night. At times of storm its intensity augments to striking proportions. During rain the plant seems to succumb and bends Its head during a thunder shower; it remains there without force or virtue, even if ono should shelter it with an umbrella. No shock is felt at that time in breaking the leaves, and the needle is unaffected beside it One never by any chance sees a bird or in- sect alight on tho electric plant; an instinct ms to warn them that they would find sudden death. It is also important to remark that where it grows nonu of the magnetic metals are found; neither iron, nor cobalt, nor nickel, an undeniable proof that the elec- tric force belongs exclusively to the plant. Light and heat, phosphorescence, magnetism, electricity, how many mysteries and botani- cal problems does this wondrous Indian plant couceakwithin its leaf and Dr. M. of the Twin Kye iincl lilur Tnfirmury is portna- In Decmtur, Til., nnil will trout nil VIIHOH of oyu, uiul ulito troutH nil at KB ForniM, of wliiolt following in ri TjD WHOM THIS MAY CONCERN. is to certify tlmt Dr. M.

The life and death of Mary Queen of Scots Is one long poem, overbrimming with the deepest pathos.

Pity and sympathy can oven foe felt for James II himself, dethroned anil banished, and lan- guishing into extinction at St. Germains. These feelings of sentiment went very far in- deed toward making the triumph of tho Stuart exhibition. There nro a sentimental sense, of partisans of Mary Queen of Scots, and of tho young chevalier. Jacobites abound in tho very test societiy; but it is questionable whether there yet linger uuy political adherents of Henry VIII or Queen Elizabeth. The materials (or a Tudor exhi- bition are amazingly copious and rich, but the display itself must vindicate its claims to public recognition less as an abstract and brief chronicle of the Tudor moriarchs than as the reproduction of a splendidly pictur- esque and artistic epoch. One most import- ant step toward the latter consummation will be made, as tho committee have hastened to announce, by a special endeavor to bring to- gether us complete a scries as possible of the works of tho illustrious artist Holbein, wiurt painter to Henry VIII, who, at least, 'mew how to estimate the genius of tho great master.

Telegraph. mid Hlppopotainutt nti Food. The lion is eaten by some African races, but its nosh is held in small esteem. The Eulus find carrion so much to their liking that, according to the late Bishop Colenso, they apply to food peopled by largo colonies of larvoe the expressive word sig- nifying in their uncouth jargon "great hap- piness." David Livingstone, that keen and accurate observer, reminds us that tho abo- riginal Australians and 'Hottentots preferred the Intestines of animals. "It is be says, "that this is tha part which animals begin with, and it is tho first choice of our men." On this point I may remind the civil- ized reader that tho woodcock and tho red mullet or sea woodcock arc both eaten and relished without undergoing all tbe cleansing processes which most animals used for food among us generally experience to lit them for tbe table, so that pur aversion to the entrails oC aniaials is not absolute, but only one of degree. Tho hippopotamus is a favorite disli with some Africans when they can got this un- wieldy and formidable river manstur, and when young Its flesh is good and palatable, but with advancing years it becomes coarse and unpleasant.

Dr. Livingstone describes the elephant's toot as delicious, and his praises will ho echoed by many travelers in lands where that sagacious monster still lingers in rapidly de- creasing numbers. "We had tho wrote the great doctor, "cooked for breakfast next morning and found It delicious. It is n whitish mass, slightly gelatinous, and sweet like marrow. A long march to prevent bil- iousness is a wise precaution after a meal of elephant's foot. Elephant's tongue and trunk are also good, and after long simmering much resemble the hump of a buffalo and the tongue of an ox, but all tha other meat is tough, and from its peculiar flavor only to bo eaten by a hungry Maga- zine.
