The Rev. C. E. Walber of Soinw

immoral conduct, with a bright und
attractive young woman who lived
in the minister's family, ff*s expel 1
ed by a vote of the 200 ; cl erg yo m ti
composing the Providence Confer h
ence, which disbanded in this city cn ? (
Tuesday la?t. Mr. Wal ht r receivt?d.(
his sentence meekly. The R-;v. A.
W. Paige was als ' expeilt'd by th - '
jame Conference cn a similar charge, |,
.and meeklv bowed to his fate. The !
Rev. G. D. B. Stoddart was deposed j
from the ministry on the ground of i j
.'inmorality, covering alleged sius!
.'like those of the preceding c!erg)-!(
men, and thus far has showed any- j
thing but meekness of spirit in bow- j :
ing to the decree of the Conference.
Mr. Stoddard, who is young, fascina
ting, and possessed largely of the
magnetic influence, was widely known
in this region several years ago as a
dashing representative of the minis
try. Ho is paid to have been fond of ;
fist horses and fine living. From
this city he went by t he Conference to j
various towns and cities of Southern
New England, in which he has always
gained a host of lively friend? and ;
far livelier critics.
If people who suffer from the dull stu
pidity that meets us every where in spriug,

knew how quick it could be cured by :

GEN. GARY'S SPEECH BEFORE
THE COUNTY CONTENTION.
Mr. President and Gentlemen of thc
I am at all times ready to respond^
to any call from the Democracy of
this State. The ties that should bind
us together are greater and should be
stronger than those of ordinary party
associations. With us it is not only
a contest for the enactment of a. fa
vorite measure or the adoption of a
particular principle, but it is a strug
gle to preserve the civilization of our
race. It was from such an appr?cia
tion of the .Democracy of this State
that I, in obedience to the unanimous
voice of the Convention and (rom a
sense "of duty that I o-.ved to the
county and State, accepted the lead
ership of the Democracy of this coun
ty in tho campaign of 1870. Belie
that year our party had been invaria
bly defeated, but after our exciting
and brilliant camp ign we won a
As your State Senator I have ad
vocated the policy of white suprema
cy, and the principles of Straightouo
Democracy, as received from Jeffer
son, Madison and Jackson, the great
leaders of the party.
I opposed the secession of the Dem
ocratic Senators from the' Senate,
against the wishes of the leaders of
the party, on the ground that such n
step would be iu violation of the
Constitution of the State, would be
revolutionary, and weald be in effect
to throw away the fruits of our splen
did victory at the ballot box. Time
bas vindicated the wisdom of those
)f us who refused to recede, and
;hereby saved the State from lapsing
igain under Radical rule. Jx^
I favored a restoration of the usu
j IKV.'S in order to protect the poor
ind nesdy from the unlimited usury
)f the money-lenders. I opposed the
imendment of the Constitution which
evied annually not less than two
ailis on the dollar for educational
)urposes, as being without precedent,
a conflict, with other portions of the
State Constitution, and against the
ij iii t ii ri cl letter of the Constitution.
?f the United States, and for the
arther reason tliat this iniquitous
neasure was conceived by the leaders
>f the Radical party.
I strenuously opposed the educa
ion of tbe children of the whites '
nu ?.-taclia in me same ti^L^ai^-m^
olleges. I favored the passage of 1
he act that prohibited the inte rm ar- .
rage of the whites and blacks. I ap- '
?roved the passage of the act that
;ave to the Govern'r the right to [
lol. pres. indictments found against '
Radical violators of the, law. I was

bas prevented capital from coming
into tho State. This is a dreadful
and oppressive evil upon the poor
??xpay?rj for the last aualysis^of
taxes makes those who cultivate the
soil pay the taxes of the Government.
This hidden and insidious system of
taxation can but alarm all who are
acquainted with the laws that should
regulate taxes, for they can but see.
that it will ab-orb tbe property of
the taxpayers and ruin every interest
of the State. . Within lue last three
years the shrinkage in the value of
the taxable property ot thc Stale has
been about fifteen millions of dollars.
Unless a proper and wise remedy is
applied, it will continue to decrease
in this unprecedented manner. ' In
stead of putting men who cannot
manage their own small finances suc
cessfully in charge of the' finances ol
the State, you must place practical,
level headed men in the General As

1 How Youug- Grant Fell in Love in
[Neun York Letter Chicago Liter Ocean.]
Yesterday I t?et a young lady just
from California, and fresh in its gos
sip. Speaking of Ulysses Grant, Jr.,
j and Miss Fiood, of millionaire father
! fame, she s lid: "Well, I won't say they
j are going tobe married, bat they
I have certainly achieved the first and
i most important stop,- that of falling
in love and, indeed (laughing), I was
a witness to the process.
"You see, it happened at a picnic
given when the ex-President was in
Frisco, ami a very jolly altair it was.
In the course of the afternoon Mi's
Flood, lik? most, young Indies on
such occasion", was aeizad with M
violent affection f>r tha fl >i*'i of her
native laud; but not. feeling ?quai to
culling the specimens by herself, in
vitad young Grant to go botanizing
with her; l-? th?y 'wandered by the
brookside' and discussed the poetical
definitions of different flowers, the
young lady happened to espy a clus
ter of the glowing wild geranium, es
pecially adapted to her complexion,
but, unluckily, growing on'the wrong
side of the stream.
' This trifle, however, could not
daunt the young Ulysses, and boldly
he leaped the-turbid stream, grasped
the bright blossom in his manly hand,
and was about to return, when his
knightly eye caught in the toils of a
beautiful and luxuriant viue, which
quick as thought, he proceeded to
break off and add to the impromptu
bouquet. ; but alackaday, the green
and graceful vine, was nothing less
than poison ivy, which, rudely torn
off, revenged itself by sprinking the
face of the fell destroyer with ils
vengeful sap, and, in consequence, by
the time the young gentleman re
crossed the stream, he felt as if all
life was made up of mosquitoes, and
the oniy comfortjin such a case, pro
fanity, denied him. .

This question, which h-s attracted j
no little attention here of late, as
well as elsewhere throughout the
State, is now before the Supreme
Court on an appeal by a citizen of1
Richland County, and a decision may
ba looked for shortly.

2'.il,000, .md in 1874 they amounted ?
to ore than 319,000. This latter j
was the largest number that ever ar- i
rived in one year. This year, as '
we have had occasion to remark be- |
1?re, the tide of immigration has set ;
in early ?md strong, and, according to
the secretary of the New York Board
of Emigration, the number will reach
nearly if not quite ?100,000. As in.
years past the greater number will
come from Ireland and Germany, but
the number from the Scandinavian
counties will be hugely increased. It
is estimated that the average amount
of money brought over by the emi
grants is sixty dollars, niakiug $24,.
000,000 that the 400,000 will add to
the wealth of the country, and this

FOR RESTORING GRAY HAIR TO ITS
NATURAL VITALITY AND COLOR.
IT is a most agreeable dressing, which
is at once harmless and effectual, for
preserving the hair. It restores, with
the gloss and freshness of youth, faded or
gray, light, and red hair, to a rich brown,
or deep black, as may be desired. By Its
use thin hair is thickened, and-baldness
often- though not always cured. 'IE
checks falling of the hair immediately,
and causes a new growth in all cases
where thc glands arc not decayed; while
to brashy, weak, or otherwise diseased
hair, it imparts vitality and strength,
and renders it pliable.
Thc YiGon cleanses thc scalp, cures
and prevents the formation of dandruff;
and, by its cooling, stimulating, and
soothing properties, it heals most if not
all of thc humors and diseases peculiar
to thc scalp, keeping it cool, clean, and
soft, under which conditions diseases of
thc scalp and hair arc impossible.
As a Dressing for Ladies' Hair?
Thc VlGon is incomparable. It is color
less, contains neither oil nor dye, and
will not soil white cambric. It imparts
an agreeable and lasting perfume, and
as an article for thc toilet it is economi
cal and unsurpassed in its excellence.
