It takea - .ty little to stop a mill these times.". THE MONEjOE DOCTRINE. : , President Arthur's recent ventures in diplomacy and the consequent general discussion now pending as to the relations of - the United States to other American countries suggest a review of the origin and purpose of the Monroe doctrine, which . embodies the fundamental principle of the traditional foreign policy of the Federal Government. It was first promulgated by Mr. Monroe in his seventh annual message to Congress, Dec. 2, 1823, and was intended to oppose in the New World the absolutis - tic tendencies fostered by the Holy Alliance in Europe.. . It will be remembered that the Holy Alliance was a compact entered into, shortly after the second abdication of the First Napoleon, by the Emperors of Russia and Austria and 'the King of Prussia, and afterward acceded to by most of the other r European powers, with the notable exception of England and the Holy See. Its ostensible object was the regulation of the States of Christendom on Christian principle ; but its real purpose was the maintenance of the doctrine ; of legitism or the divine right of kings,' in the interest of existing dynasties. Acoord - f ingly it provided that the Bonapartists should be . forever excluded from the thrones of Europe. In attempting to give: it practical effect Austria suppressed the revolutions in Naples and Piedmont in 1821 and France ' restored absolutism in 1823. In July,, 1818, Lord Castlereagh informed the American Ambassador, Mr. Bush, that England had been requested by Spain to mediate, with the co - operation of the' Holy Alliance, between her and her rebellious colonies in America. Mr. Bush replied that the United States would take no part in the proposed intervention if its basis were not the independence of the colonies. Five years later Mr. Bush had an interview with Mr. Canning on the same subject, and discovered that in the meantime . the policy of the English Government had undergone a substantial change. Castlereagh had been willing to interfere in colonial affairs in behalf of Spain ; but Wellington had taken opposite ground at the Congress of Verona, and Canning, was now prepared to antagonize theplans of the Holy Alliance provided he could secure the co - operation of the United States. Mr.. Bush, of course, communicated this fact to his own Government, and it was received with great satisfaction. Mr. Calhoun, then Secretary of War, declared that'the power of the Holy Alliance had become so formidable that even the United States had not felt safe from its intermeddling. ' Mr. Monroe consulted Mr. Jefferson in regard to the expediency of accepting tke proffered help of England, and that eminent statesman expressed an unqualified approval of the projeet. He held that America, North and South, having peculiar interests, should have a political system framed in accordance with those interests, and founded on . freedom. " Qur first and fundamental maxim should be," he declared, " never to entangle ourselves in the broils of Europe. Our second, never to suffer - Europe to intermeddle with cis - Atlantic affairs. America, North and South, has certain interests distinct from those of Europe, and peculiarly her own. She should, therefore, have a system of her own, separate and apart from that of Europe. While the last is laboring to become the domicile of despotism, our endeavors should surely be to make our hemisphere that of freedom." ; , ' ' Mr. Monroe prepared his; message in consonance with this view. '"We declare," he wrote, "that we should consider any attempt (of the allied powers) to extend their system to any portion bf this hemisphere as dangerous to our peace and safety. With the Governments who have declared their independence and maintained it, and whose independence we have, on great consideration and on just principles, acknowledged, we could not view any interposition for the purpose ; of , oppressing them or controlling, in any other manner, their destiny , by any European power, in 1 any other light than as the manifestation of an unfriendly disposition towards the United States." The influence of 'the Holy Alliance was seriously, weakened bythe death of the Emperor Alexander, and was virtually terminated by the French revolution of 1830. Constitutionalism and liberalism have steadily advanced in Europe, and there seems to be no longer any reason to fear the forcible importation of absolutism into any American country. The political system of the New World is strong and safe under the protection of the United States. But, while the Monroe doctrine is not so immediately urgent as formerly it was, there are ; still ; strong . bonds of natural 1 alliance between them. Increasing . . facilities ' of intercourse must . bring them into closer and ever closer commercial relations, and this fact will become of more and more importance as the material development of Mexico, Central America and South America respond to that of the United States. It is a grand idea, that of a whole hemisphere held together in one great confederacy of independent r ationalit ies by a common love of freedom and mutual Commercial and industrial interests. Mr. Arthur realizes the sublimity of tho conception; but he would push its application too fast and too far. Worldwide consummations of peace, prosperity and progress are the worthiest j inspirations - of statesmanship, but they should not be purchased at too great expense to important local interests. Let us hasten the completion of every means of intercourse, and leave the adjustment of special trade regulations to the gradual indication of circumstances. . v , : v . We have just received the sad intelligence of the death of Albert Sidney. Johnston, only son of CoL Wm. Preston' Johnston and .Eosan . Duncan, and grandson of Gen. Albert Sidney Johnston and of Judge Duncan, of this city. He died on the 9th insti, at Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, from an attack of typhoid fever. Only twenty - four years of ' age, at the dawn of his young manhood, just when hope is most alluring and life is glorified with seeming promise, he was called, .from, the duties of - time to the awards of. eternity; T To his bereaved parents, and to his many relatives and friends here and elsewhere, we tender a heartfelt sympathy. - ;. THE SENATORIAL " ELECTIONS. ; The ' terms of twenty - five "United States Senators expire March 4, 1885. Eleven of them are Republicans and fourteen Democrats. Successors have already been elected to four : Gen. John S. - Williams of Kentucky is succeeded by Bepresentative Joseph C. S. Blackburn, a brilliant man, : but decidedly unequal to Senator Beck in intellectual weight ; Benjamin F. Jonas of Louisiana is succeeded by the representative of the Ring, James B. Eustis; ex - Go v. James B. Groome of Maryland is succeeded by Judge Ephraim K. Wilson, who is in his sixty - fifth year, has had ample experience both judicial and legislative, and will make a strong Senator ; and George H. Pendleton of Ohio is succeeded by the venerable Judge Henry B. Payne, who would be a large improvement on Pendleton if the latter were not cast in so splendid a mold. Five have been re - elected: James L. Pugh of Alabama, an able veteran of lifelong experience, in his sixty - fifth year; Joseph E. Brown of Georgia, a few months younger, whose sturdy sound sense makes his services invaluable ; William B. Allison of Iowa, who has served well eight years in the House and twelve in the Senate, and is nearly fifty - six years old; the gallant Wade Hampton of South Carolina, who is nearly . sixty - seven ; and Justin S. Mor - rill of Vermont, who has sat in Congress thirty consecutive years and could hardly be spared ; he is nearly seventy - five years of age. Thus far the Senate has not received much deterioration, while this is more than compensated by the gain in weight. We are glad to observe that the same general fact of a Senate f ally equal in force and character to the present body is to be confirmed by the sixteen elections which with a single exception will occur this month. The following are about sure of re - election : Orville H. Piatt of Connecticut, in his fifty - eighth year, a good man; Wilkinson Call of Florida, '51; John J. Ingalls of Kansas, one of the smartest rising men of the Senate, . 51 ; he has served twelve years already ; George G. Vest of Missouri, 54, a careful, practical legislator ; John P. Jones of Nevada, 54, his third term; and probably we may add Zebulon B. Vance of North Carolina, 54, and Daniel W. Voochees of Indiana, 57, one of the best Senators. Of the remaining nine seats, that from New York is contested by Levi P. Morton, Minister to France, and William M. Evarts, ex - Secretary of State. ; the former has money, the latter brains, and it is not impossible for a dark horse to slip in between them. They are both strong Republicans. The seat from Arkansas is sharply contested for by Gov. ' Berry, Congressman Dunn, and others. J. Donald Cameron is stoutly opposed' in Pennsylvania by friends of Judge Kelley, Gen. Beaver, and others, It is intimated that Secretary Teller has things fixed for his election from Colorado, to succeed Prof. Hill. Secretary Chandler is making a bold fight for Senator Blair's seat from New Hampshire, and it is to be hoped that he wilt not get it ; Blair is as good a man as we can hope to have from that State. Col. John C. Spooner, a strong Republican and an eloquent speaker, long known as one of the best lawyers in Wisconsin, has . the inside track for Judge Cameron's seat. Nobody knows who will win. Gen. Logan's seat from Illinois ; the Legislature is a tie, if we count Haynes as a Democrat, and there is not much chance of his voting for Logan. The seats from California and Oregon will be given to strong Republicans, who are likely to be railroad men. There are ten candidates in Oregon and several in California, including Gov. Stanford, the President of the Central Pacific Railroad, It is probable that he will oly run if necessary to prevent the election of an anti - railroadman. '. The political complection of the Senate remains uuchanged; the Republicans gain one. each in California and Oregon, and may lose one in Illi nois. The Woman's Department of the . . Exposition. ; There is to be another meeting of ladies at the St. Charles Hotel Batuiday afternoon. At this meeting farther efforts will Toe made to raise the money necessary to install the exhibits of the Woman's Department at the Exposition. 1 The entertainment glren for this purpose Tuesday night by Joaquin Miller and Mrs. Howe is said to have netted (600. - The sum of $3000 is needed immediately to pay the expenses of unpacking, arranging, making showcases, and putting the exhibits up In an attractive shape. The ladies of New Orleans ate appealed to to raise this sum. Evei y dollar contributed or raised for this putpose by the ladies of New Orleans will be placed in the hands of Mrs. Julia Ward Howe, of Boston, and doubtless will be Judiciously expended. Thlsjmoney is necessary and must be raised, and it seems to be conceded by the male management of the Exposition that it must be raided by the ladies. More Is the pity, for it does seem as if the male management, in expending a couple of million dollars, or more, solicited from . the National Government, ! State and city, and private subscriptions of the rich and poor, for the display of ' the works of man, ought to have been able to have squeezed out a poor little 93000 a less sum than has been paid in at the Exposition gates by ladies in one day for the proper arrangement and exhibit of woman's work, which should be as Important and interesting as anything at the Exposition. But the ladies of New Orleans, we feel confident,' will not let the department languish, and will accomplish what they are asked to do. " KNIGHTS OF THE GOLDEN RULE. Loaleiana Castle. No. 11T. . Wednesday evening, the 14th inst., in Louisiana Castle No. 117 the following comrades were duly installed in office for the ensuing term by Hon. Michael Brooks, Grand Commander of this State: Past Commander, Fred'k A. Johnson; Commander, Dr. .Emanuel Dreif us; Vice Commander, Jacob Kohl - man; Recording Secretary, V. H. Briede; Financial Secretary, . J. Pennington; Treasurer, M. J. Feehan; Prelate, H. May - nard; Master - at - Arms, Louis Gimbel; Herald, Geo. L. Heno; Warden, Chaa. Kaiser; Sentinel, Chris. Madden. Dr. Dreifus on assuming the chair made a brief but earnest address, when the Past Commander, Fred'k A. Johnson, handed him a congratulatory letter and statement of the benevolent fund (of which the Commander of the Castle is constituted the custodian), with his account balanced to anoint, by the Inelosnre of the sum of $83 85. The prospects ot this castle are very nattering, it being in good financial condition, well officered and with an ever increasing roll of members.' - The greatest hit of the last few yean Is a blacking for ladles' and children's use, called " Bixbt'b Botal Polish," put np in patent bottles, which prevent, an overflowing and soiling of the hands, carpets Or fur - Bicore, audit keeps the leather in a soft and presentable condition until the stiecM - are fully worn out. 44 Sieba.n at the St. Charles Theatre, will positively he brought to a close next Saturday night, and that performance will also end the performances frlven here this season by the Klralf y Brothers. There was some talk of producing " Excelsior" here for a run: but previous engagements prevented securing the theatre, and the project has been abandoned. Another season the Klral - fya will bring something big here : but after next Saturday the company and ballet goes on the road with "Black Crook", and "Around the World," and will be seen here no more this season. Buffalo Bill will appear at the St. Charles Theatre Sunday mght In one of his old time dramas, " The Prairie Waif," supported by a competent dramatic company. Mr. Milton Nobles, in "Love and Law," continues at the Academy of Music. Mr. Roland Reed, always a popular comedian here, appears at the Academy Sunday night in his drama called " Cheek. Miss Mattle Vickars, wbo came here a stranger, has no cause to complain of her reception at the Grand Opera House. Mr. J. A. Simon and his dramatic company appeared in "Solomon Isaacs" at the Grune - wald Opera House last night to a large audience. The performance was tor the benefit of the Joseph A. Mower Post No. 1, Grand Army of the Republic, and the venture was a success. On Sunday night Miss Grace Hawthorne, an American girl, under the management of Mr. W. W. Kelley, will appear at the Grune - wald Opera House in a new version of " Ca - mille," supported by Wm. Harris and other performers of merit. Robinson's Dime Museum has new attractions, both in the curiosity hall and in the theatre below, and is doing well. The ten - cent circus is doing well at Farau - ta's Theatre. Great preparations are being made for the illustrations of national Mexican sports, including a mimic bull fight. - The first entertainment will be given Sunday afternoon at the amphitheatre near the Exposition Grounds. - The sale of subscription tickets for the season for Her Majesty's Opera Company, at tbe Bt. Charles Tueatre, opened at Grune - wald's music store, on Canal street, yesterday, and was quite active. The indications are that Madame PattJ and other great singers that Mapleson will bring here, will have no cause of complaint on account of their reception here. Tbe German Imperial Band, playing for the benefit of the Touro Infirmary, had a fair audience at the Washington Artillery Hall last night. There will be another concert to - night, with a change of programme. . The Buffalo Bill Wild West Show at Oakland Park is good when the weather is good. The weather also decides whether or not fireworks will be given at the same place tonight. THE BETHEL. The Serenth Anniversary The Good Work Gee Bravely on. The seventh anniversary of the Upper Bethel was celebrated last night, the chapel being well filled with a number of ladles and gentlemen, and also some sailors. Rev. Drs. Palmer, Markham, Flinn and D.T. J. Wither - spoon, of Louisville, Ky., and other ministers were present. Rev. Dr. Flinn opened the services with raver, Rev. Dr. Markham read the 107th 'salm and the hymn, Come tbou fount of every blessing," was sung by the assembly. Mr. Alfred Goldthwaite, Treasurer of the New Orleans Seamen's Friend Association, read his report ehowiug receipts during the year N330 90 ; expenditures, $4309 99 ; balance on hand, $30 91. The report showed that $1759 67 had been expended for building, repairing, etc, on the Bethel and appurtenant buildings ; S577 had been collected from the New Orleans Insurance Company for damages to Bethel by fire. The report of the Ladies' Bethel Association showed receipts, $1061 05; expenditures, tioia 18. Reports of Bethel Church: Receipts from various sources, $139 35, and expenditures, showing a balance of $3 75. Dr. A. J. Witherspoon, on be naif of the Ladies' Bethel Association, presented Mr. Offenbach with a handsome gold - headed cane in appreciation of his services to the Bethel. Mr. Terrebonne sang " Where is My Wandering Boy To - night." The report of the Secretary - showed 14 destitute seamen relieved during tbe year, passage home obtained for 31, employment on sb ore obtained for 17, 13 sent home by their Consuls and 137 paid off and shipped. Total entered at Bethel during year, 183 Just 137 less than in 1883. Dr. Witherspoon's report showed that forty - three eeamen had connected themselves with the church. The Temperance Society was increasing and doing much good. Interesting Instances of the work of tbe Bethel among seamen were cited, and letters from distant seamen incorporated in the chaplain's report; also various communications from various foreign Governments In relation to tbe Bethel. Dr. Witherspoon. of Louisville, Ky., was introduced and delivered an eloquent address, his theme being " The Knighthood of the seas ; its antiquity, progress, peace, courage, etc." The remarks of the Doctor elicited much applause from the audience. A committee of gentlemen then proceeded to make a collection, after which the meeting dispersed. VETEEAJf SOLDIERS' HOME. Reorganization of the Board of Director.

There are a great many such things. One is, that there is no use having dyspepsia unless you really like it and want to have it. It is an established fact that Brown's Iron Bitters will conquer this disease in short order and completely. Mr. Daniel L. Nickain, Springfield, Ohio, says : M Brown's Iron Bitters cured me of dyspepsia, nervousness aud wakefulness." DIED.

Without I have been troubled with a very bad case of cross - eyes since childhood, and dreading the probable results of an ou. eratiou, feared to place myself under the treatment of any oculist until I heard of the great skill of Dr. Prentice. No. 18 Dryades, The Doctor operated on " both of them, and, in the short space of one minute, and with but slight pain, they were both perfectly straight, and I ' .can Bee much better. It is now eight months since the operation, and my eyes still remain perfect. . J. O. West, Clerk and Operator City Police. Besidence 75 St. Andrew. .

' . :;i;;;;.. - ;V , Being totally blind with cataract, four years ago I had an operation performed on my eye by an eminent surgeon. - The result was not good, and I became very much discouraged; but, hearing such good reports of Dr. Prentice, I had him operate on my eye the last of April, 1884, aud with : the eye Dr. Prentice operated on I can see to read and write, also read small Bigns across the street. Any afflicted person who may want information from - me can either call or ' writte. Chas. Bodies, , Corner of Peter and Chestnut stSj, 1 Algiers, New Orleans, La. Over one . hundred that have been totally blind and restored to sight, can be ' referred to, such as : . - - Chas. - Koedick, corner Peter and Chestnut streets, Algiers, La. L. J. H.

Dr. Prentice cured me ia two months: and now my face is as smooth as a baby's. . A Lady of New Orleans. ' CATARRH. The Gateway of Consumption and Death. ' .. Years of untiring research in the pa thology of Catarrh have brought forth volumes on the subject. A theory of treatment has prevailed for a time, been . thoroughly tried, found useless, and finally abandoned, to give way to some new theory, that goes through the same , course . of trial and failure, and so on almost ad - finitum, until not only the , patients, but the physicians, have become discouraged of ever finding a cure. Well do I remember the faith of the t profession in the "nasal douch" fifteen . years ago. All kinds of medication in their turn were used in this apparatus. : ' Then we tried the steam and various , mechanical atomizers for throwing medicated spray into the various sinuses, terior nasal syringes, etc.; bottles and jars, with breathing tubes for inhaling . air that passes through medicated liquids. All these modes have had advocates, and still have a few zealous supporters: but my experience tells me that even the most zealous practitioners of thARe treatments will in time follow . in the footsteps of those who have been over the field, and abandon them as useless. Why f Because the principle is wrong. ' Any medicine sufficiently powerful to repair the lesion or cure the . disease, in being inhaled into the lungs would injure the delicate structure of the bronchial tubes, and only hasten that dreaded disease in which Catarrh so often ends Consumption. - Of the varied forms of Catarrh Acute, Hay . Fever, Passive, Hypertrophic, Supura - , tive and .Ulcerative we can truly say that we do not know of one case that has not been cored by properly using The English Catarrh Cure, : ;; which has made permanent cures ia from one to' three months, in cases that have tried all other remedies for years without help. - D& Prentice has the sola, right to use the English Catarrh Cure in this country. Over a thousand bad cases of Catarrh have been permanently cured by this , ucatiucuu, una luuuwuig ucuig u . . ample of many : . v ; ' . 'A New Orleans Zietter. ' '. My son had a troublesome catarrh of the head and the throat for nearly three years. I have watched the gradual . .. Srogress of the disease with a great eal of anxiety, for when I placed him' under the care of "the leading physicians , - and while strictly following their ad - vice and medical treatment, I saw nvy son from day to day grow worse. His hearing became so badly affected that he could not hear the ticking of a watch held close to the ear. After trying tae.
