REPUBLICAN Congressmen bad a regular fist and skull fight while the House was in session last Thursday The cursing, swearing and pulling o hair was so disgraceful that most o the ladies present left the house m disgust. The gallant Democrat members sat by and enjoyed the inter necine strife, with avidity. THE New York Evening Post, i journal independent in politics, thi most scholarly paper in America, th one edited so long by William Cullen Bryant, and later by his son-in-law £. L. Godkin and Carl Schurz, aftc; stating that now for the first time fo: twenty-five years tne question of tariff is being discussed on its merits in the senate, goes on to say: "The attention of the country should be given to this debate. I brings into conspicuous notice severa point*: (1.) The great ability, sincerity o; purpose, and mastery of the subjec on the part of the leading speakers on the Democratic side. (2.) It brings into yet more con spvcuous notice either the want of sincerity or the want of capacity on the other side."

The Tribune being constantly in our rear would most certainly be the first to find it out. The G. A. K. and Politics- DD, CONSTITUTION: The question is often asked of dose who are members of the G. A. B., "Is not the Post a political or^ ganization?" Answering the aboye question rom a knowledge of its rules and egulations, we are compelled to say no. But when we inquire into the easons for the questions or why they should be asked of us, we readily ind a cause for them which relieves us of our astonishment and furnishes to those not acquainted with the organization an excuse for entertaining these views and why the impression has become so universal that the Pos is a political organization. By observation, we have found several reasons why these impression* prevail. Oae reason is that the whole membership of the G. A. B. i looked upon by outsiders as Republican, which, while it is true of the majority of the membership, is no true when the G. A. B. is taken as whole, for what was true of the Union army is also true of the G. A. B. In the army, Democrats and Bepubli cans stood elbow to elbow for months or years and did not know or inquire iato each other's politicfil proclivities and so far as any conversation of a political nature is concerned the same may be truly said of the Post. No discussions or remarks of a politics nature are ever indulged in in the Order, and both parties may enjoy the benefits of its charity and fraternity without even knowing each other's political opinioas or having them in any way interfered with. Another reason why this impression prevails is the fact that the G. A. H. can hardly have a social gathering or reunion of any kind, to which the public is generly invited, but tba designing politicians or speakers wil generally make this an opportunity to advance their political interests and vent their personal spite to those who were on the opposite side during the war. Again there are members of the G. 4. R. who embrace every opportunity in their conversation with political opponents when outside of tb order for reasons best known to themselves to produce the impression that the G. A. B. is a republican organization. Such things are wrong and are thi means of producing wrong impres sioDS not to be desired and which tend to keep up,.and foster a pre judice and animosity which the soldier and G. A. B, should not b guilty of, and should be the first to condemn. It is fast bringing thi G. A. B. into disrepute with thi conservative and reasoning element of all classes of society. Let us not be misunderstood ii in this matter. I am not objecting to matters which formed the basis o opinions upon which the two section of the country were divided during the war being discussed private! with those who were in arms agains us and I have yet to learn of a aingl instance where soldiers of opposit sides after discussing their hardships privations or grievances have no parted in friendship and felt bette for their exchange of views; bu what I do object to is a public exposi of these differences where the op posite party have no chance to say a word in their defence and coulc not if they bad the opportunity. . have always looked upon that modi of venting ones spite as unmanly i not cowarly. I can see no reason for keeping u] this animosity, neither can I see where any good can be accomplishec by it. _____ It seems to me that one of the most .[touching appeals to on sympathies, integrity and manhooc by the Southern people was tha made in the halls of Congress by Mr. Breckenridge of Kentucky, when be said in speaking of the passage o: the Lodge Bill. "I appeal to the living soldiers who met us in battle array. I appea to the Christians who kneel with us at the same altar. I appeal to the brave men who recognize sincerity and bravery. Behind you I appeal to the living people of the North, Give us your confidence, we will deserve it, we do deserve it, and he who says otherwise does not know U3, or does not care to speak the truth to us."

Chillicotbe, Mo. .""April 7, 1890. Citizenship of The Republic- ICOMMtTHICATED.l Citizenship in the United States confers the greatest blessings that a :ivil society can bestow. Liberty of peech, liberty of tne press, and en- ire freedom from censorship in maters political and religious are here enjoyed m a measure in which they re nowhere else enjoyed on the face of the earth. The statue of Bedloe's Island, "the eighth wonder of the world," is not a symbol of fabrication. The fraternity and equality of men are facts realized and appreciated by all true Americans. These conditions are favorable to the highest development of mind and character The moral growth ia not stunted by national, and but slightly by heredi tary bias, as no man is accountable to his neighbor for his beliefs anc practices. These liberties are suited to per' sons of moral balance and educate intelligence, but in the employmen of the vicious and of those not in harmony with American institutions though living in America and citizens of the republic, they are proper causes of dread and possible sources of much danger, It is the duty of every American citizen to guard as sacred the institutions which are peculiarly American Are there not interests enough ia these to engage all our activities? Why should an American citizen be concerned in European affairs? It is natural and just that we sympathize with the oppressed of Ireland or England, of Germany, Austria, Turkey, Greece or Italy ; but it is impossible that we promote and allay ourselves with the propagandae of foreign political parties,excep to the impairment of American national character. There is danger that our institutions will suffer, if, indeed, they have not already suffered, national, bias, or other, whose birth must be attributed not to the soil of the Republic,but to continental lands, saturated with class distmctios, political heredity, and the groanings of an ignoble populace, as well as sophisticated political doctrines--socialism, nihilism, fenianism, and such-like revolutionary principles. There is reason to believe that the nihilists are a much aggrieved class and justly deserve the sympathy of mankind, and we observe them with scientific interest. But this spirit should not disturb American society. The same is true to an extent of socialism under the German Empire. All Americans sympathize with Ireland in her bereft condition. The greatest Englishman of the age--the greatest of any age--has devoted the best portion of his political career to the championship of the Irish cause. This is just. It is also a matter of deep interest to all students of British politics, as well as to all friends of humanity. But National Leagues, Clan-nasG-ael and Fenian societies in America, all will agree, have been detrimental to the integrity and dignity of American nationality. America, as all other nations, has a character peculiarly her own. This is as far removed as can well be from that of European nations; but it is at least secondary,!* not totally ignored, in league allies of foreign parties. Then the question is pertinent: Do emigrants to the United States become Americans, or do they enjoy the immunities of a free country, snd deyote themselves entirely to the interests of the factions of their former homes? If they come into American society why should those old questions vex them, or why do they seek to array public opinion in this country on those questions ? In a recent quarrel between Orangemen and Bib- bonmen at Homestead, Pennsylvania, John Sheets, one of the former, was murdered. But what are Orangemen, and what are Bibbonmen ? These are two organizations formed about 100 years ago in Ireland, the one being Protestant, the other Catholic. But this occurence was in America, where there is perfect liberty of conscience. The truly Americanized foreign element in our population is invaluable to us, and we are much indebted to them for their aid in the promotion of learning and free institutions. But a considerable portion of recent emigrants have abused the liberties j vouchsafed to citizens and perverted them to pernicious ends. The time has come when intelligent citizens have more to do than merely to look after individual enterprise; it is their highest duty vigilantly to guard the safety of the Bepublic. PSYCHE.
