Tub explanation ot the Democratic

one of our contemporaries, is that the
Democratic Councilmen in arranging
for the erection of a new city hall,
signified their intention of contracting
for the work. This met with out
spoken opposition from the masses of
the laboring men, who wanted the
work done by the day, and nominated

is to hint delicately to Edmunds,

Claims Committee of the House and
made a very earnest plea in favor of
the recognition and payment of the
Confederate war debt by the Federal
Government. He is supposed to rep

some speculators in New York, The
Judge is one of the ablest lawyers of
the Empire State and knows the con

his plea is an impudent one made in
the face of the most exp icit declara

gress is forever prohibited, and the
States as well, from ever assuming or
paying a cent of that debt. The
Judge's presumption ought to be
promptly rebuked by the House.
The Prohibi' ionists ha ve e ver y tb ing

to be closed, as their proprietors say
they cannot make money without sell

on rent in the cities and towns has
been ve:y perceptible. The real esla'e

The five civilised tribes, the com

Indians In every repect, and that "he

ucation and religion. Ihe commmee
gives a brief sketch of the forms of iiov
ernrnent of the various tribes from
the rottowa'orxiitfs to the Cherokites,
and of the latter says that it is mod

high tyiie ot republican governnixnt,
and that it is d fficult, after a
searching criticism, to point out any
serious defe ts in their constituu in or
statutes. In gome respects several ot
onr S'a'e conetitut ots could be
amended to advantage by appending
some of the provisions ot the Chero
kee constitution. ' Four of these five
commonwealths," the committte says,
"are well prepared to Uke their plues

be such as to sustain and enc mr-go

"The best interests of the rive civ

the istahlishment of a court tt or neer
