An Office not Worth the Seeking.
Since the reduction of the fees of the
Sheriff's office, by our Legislators at
their last session, the office is worth lit
erally nothing. Hearing Sheriff Wall
complain very earnestly concerning the
reduction of tho fees of the officers of
Court, we made enquiry concerning his
receipts for the month of April, and after
an examination, he reports his entire
income for the month by way of fees,
service of writs, dre, at only $10 08. And
says " It's a blasted shame for a set of
legislators to exact six hundred dollars a
year for their own services,-which could
have been as well rendered in half the
time, and at half the pay required,-and
then to pretend that they arc protecting
the interests of the people by reducing
the already miserable pittance allowed
certain officers. These legislators strain
at, allowing a dime to-: tb ose who are
justly due it, yeti they don't: hesitate on
any and all occasions to line their own
pockets at the expense of the tax-payers,
regardless of their much* -vaunted pru
dential considerations in behalf of thc
people when the dimes fall to some one
else" And Sheriff Wall is right While
they were reducing fee? and wages, why
did they not act consistently and reduce
the salaries and fees' of all the State
and County officer, the legislator* in

Off fur the Lava Beds !
A "grapevine'' telegram from Presi

A Reliable Patent Medicine.
Dr. Simmons' Liver Regulator, of all
thc patent uostrums of the day, we con
sider strictly reliable, and essentially
valuable as a remedy for diseases arising
from derangement of the Liver. We
are sustained in this opinion by hun
dreds of people in this immediate viciui
t3' who have for years tested its superior
tucdicinal qualities for Dyspepsia, Head
aches, Diseases of the Skin, Impurity of j
thc Blood, Asthma, Female Affections,
and Bilious Diseases generally. Their
continued use of this medicine, and the
rapidity with which it sells, speaks vol
umes in its behalf as to its reliability
aud popularity. But our reasons for this
emphatic endorsement of Simmons' Liver
Regulator, does not aris? from any mi
raculous cure it has effected ou us, or
any of our corps, but simply because we
have had considerable business transac
tions with the manufacturers of the Regu
lator, Messrs. J. H. Zeilin & Co.,-of |
Macon, Ga., and of Philadelphia, Pa.,
for a number of years, and have always
found them liberal and reliable gentle
men ; and if a man is reliable in bis pe
cuniary- transactions, he will very likely
be equally reliable in the manufacture
and preparation of any medicine he may
offer for sale. Therefore we commend
the Regulator, and would advise the
afflicted ?who have not given it a trial to
, do so at once.

The State Treasury is st^UinA muddle.
All that outsiders know cert^inl^ is tba$
there is said .to be no money^n^' ^hfi
true cause of this failure of funds so early
in the year will probably not be satisfac
torily known until the legislature jneets,
if then. Cardozo's friends say that the
county treasurers are behind, and the ar
rests which were made some time> back
gave some coloring of truth to the apology.
A prominent State official told me to
day that he was beginning seriousiy to
fear that Caniozo had sadly mismanaged
the funds, and t&attbe,'"de\]lwoii?d'brfo '
pay" before the year ended. Messrs. Hope
& Gyles, who have been supplying th?
Asylum with provisions for the past ttrree
or four months, and whose bill amounts to
eleven or twelve thousand'dollars, have
not been able to get a dollar yet. Messrs.
Agnew & Son have sued the regents of the
Asylum for the balance of their biil of ]
last year, and so it goes, I have heard
no complaints about the Penitentiary as
yet. Tile Governor is pardoning all that
he can, and some that he should'nt, of the
convicts! probably with an eye to the
economy which the scarcity of money nec
essitates. Dennis, however, may be relied
upon to get his share as long as there il a
dollar in the treasury.
The enemies of Cardozo, on the other
hand, say that the arrests were all for ef
fect, and intended to divert ceasure from
iii proper object, and that the money has
been collected and squandered. The truth,
as usual, will probably be found between
these extremes. A good deal of money is
nc- doubt still due the treasury, and a good
deal has been allowed to slip from it im
properly and unwisely. #
There is two years' interest upon the
bonds of the State m arrears, and even if J
th-j debt be reduced by discarding the
fraudulent bonds to $9,000,000 the . enor
me us sum of $1,120,000 would have to be
raised to pay the interest, and this would
necessitate a tax of eight mills.
R. K. Scott has had his "little feelings"
hurt too since he has been among the outs.
He tells the story on himself. . Says the
mortified and disgusted doctor: It was
jusi, after the inauguration of Moses, when
one day I was coming out of the State
house feeling sad and melancholy, with
not a fpiend in the world scarcely that I
felt I could rely upon. Outside the door
I noticed a group of niggers chatting to
gether, and as I passed they looked at me
in an odd sort of way, as if undetermined
whether to speak to me or not. Finally
one of them came forward extending his.
hand', and said very cordially liow'dye do
Governor; how are you to-day? I shook
hands with him and walked In, when I
heard one of his comrades say to him,
" Who dot you call Gubner ? dat no Gub
ner ; he nuttin but ex Gubner; he can't
do you no good now ; what de debbil you
shake hands wid him fur? And until I
got clean out of sight I could hear the
ungrateful scoundrel repeating his words
louder arid louder every time, evidently
for my gratification. 1' never, says the'
doleful ex-Governor, saw the base ingrati
tude of the nigger so plainly exemplified
but once before in my life, and that was
when old John Brown was hung. There
was a large crowd of niggers to see the
hangrg, probably two or three thousand,
all of whom see ded to enjoy the sight.
Just as the trap-door fell, and poor old
John was dangling at the end of the rope,
an ungrateful nigger scamp yelled out:
'. Kick, you darned old gray-headed scoun
drel you. We'll show you how to come
down here and teef gentlemen's property."
