The Pension Law.,
Congress has passed an act amending an
act iensioniug the soldiers of thet war of
iai2, ' which is very unjust, in that it ex
cludes the Southem'soldiers if they took up
arms, aided, aletted or s-mpathired in any
manner with' the late "lost cause." Such a
pfension law is supremely infamous. Tax
i&e property of Southern soldiers of the war
of.-18 12 to pension the Northern soldiers of
that war L And that's radical justice ! '
iButthisis not the only law the radical
party-' deserves strangling for. They are
taxing the South toorect cemeteries for the
Northern soldiers yho perished fighting &
plundering the South. Not , only to erect
cemeteries for the Northern soldiers, but to
ornament and beautify- them ! Nor is this
all: , Lazy radical rascals are employ efd at
big salaries to watch and guard thesu cento-.
tenes. .1 he South is taxed to foot the bill.
And where, vre ask, i3 the authority in the
federal Constitution . for Congress to do
these things ? " It. isn't there, and '. the man
lies who says it is. ' ' - - "' "
Taxing us to ornament and beautify ce
meteries for those who fell lighting us, and
taxing us to 'support lazy rascals, lit only to
rob the grave, to live at these" cemeteries
and overlook them!.. Well, that's pretty,
decidedly pretty. It is outrage enough to
tax us to &y the living a pension for light
ing us, but greater still to tax us for the
grave-yards of the deadj who came South
without our invitation. IllUsboro Recorder
Important Discovery in Cancer .Therapeutics.
At the recent annual, scientific meet ins:
held at the New York Medical University,
Professor Scott read an : interesting paper
upon an entirely. nev method of, treating
cancer, which gives promise of. tho allevia
tion of much human misery Tlie treatment
of cancer has hitherto been empirical and
unsatisfactory chloride of 1 zinc, nitric acid
and arsenic, the remedies usually employed,
being painful, dangerous and unreliable.
Professor Scott's discovery consists in ap
plying to the surface of the sore the chloride
of chromium a new salt of this rare metal
incorporated into stramonium1 ointment.
This preparation,, in a lew hours, converts
the tumor into carbon, and it crumbles away.
Specimens of cancers thus carbonized were
inspected by a number of physicians present,
which had the appearance of charcoal and
were easily pulverized between the fingers.
The remedy causes little or no pain, and
is not poisonous. A considerable number of
cancers have been cured by this means, and
an airent of such marvelous efficacy must ere
long be adopted by the entire profession.

Great Discovery in
OIL ! OIL ! !
The undersigned, a practical manufacturer, has
for the past 12 years been experimenting with and
compounding LUBRICATING OIL. He has lately
made a new and important discovery in the laws
governing fatty substances, such as OILS, whereby
the gummy matter can be detached from the Oil
and precipitated to the bottom, leaving a perfectly
pure Oil tit for LUBRICATING PURPOSES. He
has applied this discovery to Oils intended for
machinery, and produced an OIL WARRANTED
not to heat or gum, and as durable as the best of

V,. The Grand Jury JSystenb :
We think we hazard nothing in paying
that it is iu direct antagouism to justice, for
the reason; ,tuat thVai'used is arraigned be
fore a tribunal in which t lie has no voice :
that he cannot impeach tho testimony offer
ed against him, nor prove his innocence, ami
because it permits cowardly i miscreants In
vent their spite upon indiridnaLs 'in secret.
Under the pregenl system any man may be
held up to tho comniuiiity as guilty of :&
crime against the la w without the slightest
parricle, of 'evidence to make good the
charge-,. in fact the grand jury room is little
better than an iiwjuisitoi ial chamber, where
often the reputation of high-minded men is'
passed jipon and covered with the slime; of
tsnspicion. - ' ' , , ;
We are well aware of the fact thai
at one of
ine amenumeui: to the constitution pro
vides that "no person shall be held to an
swer for a capital or otherwise infamous
crime unless on. a . presentment or indict
ment of a grand jury." This is right as far
as it goes, but it should alko-havo provided
for graud juries holding open session, where
the prosecutor would be compelled to face
the defendant and where each might sum
mon two or more witnesses to sustain their
allegation under oath. ; . " " - "
The hardship of the present secret sys:
teni lies in the fact that' only the prosecu
tor is heard. Were it otherwise, two-thirds
of the cases that are now sent , before the
courts for trial by a petit jury would be de
termined in the grand iury room, the accus
ed being thereby saved !froni scandal and
heavy expense, while the time of-th'c courts
. would not be squandered in hearing frivol
ous charges and awaiting verdicts of ac
quittal. ; ' ' ' ;
The Confederacy and Reconstruction.
The Philadelphia Ledger has the follow
ing: The Southern States, ten years -ago,
withdrew from the Union by the action of
their representatives in Congress in the fol
lowing order: South - Carolina,' 1 8C0, De

ana, January 2tith; Texas Febuary 1st;
Arkansas, 3iarch 22d; Virginia, April 17th;
Tennessee, May 6th ; iSortn Carolina, May
20th. The order in which"thev were re-ad-mitted
is as follows : lennessee, 1806, De
cember 3d; Arkansas, 1S6S, June 23; Flor
ida, 1868, July 1st; Louisiaua, 1868, July

1st; Mississippi, 1870, February 23d; Tex
as, 1870, March 30th, and Georgia, 1871,
February 13th. From these dats it Aviil
appear that Tennessee was not represented
in Congress for live years, six months and
eleven days ; North Carolina for seven
years and two months ; Arkansas for seven

The characteristics of any people change
but little. The influence of civilization upon
the general features of any nation is not
enough to so transform those features that ;
the judicious antiquarian may not be able
to discover a decided resemblance a real
family likeness between those Who lre in
different ages. - As has been clearly estab- "
lished, there is a marked identity of cliarao- '" '

curial Frenchman of our time both inhabit-' ,
ing the same country, and the latter the de-
scendant of the former. The men against
whom the great Caesar fought were striking- '
ly like the men against whom the Emperor' '
William has just hurled his overwhelming' 4j
hordes of Prussians."" Cato writes i "In two "
things he (the Gaul) doth most zealously
endeavor to excel, in tear, and in a clever; :
tongue" A Frenchman "all over!' " '
A similar resemblance exists in the Greek, 'g
of to-day and the Greek of the days I of tSoc
rates and Plato. 4Thc national character., ,
abides with wonderful tenacity." The elder..', j
Cato thus speaks of the Greeks pf his time,
