The Status of the Next House
A correspondent of the Pbiladelphia
North A mericon. writing from \Vash.
ington, under date of April 8. says:
I am enabled to give, in advance
the official statement that the next
House of Representatives will be
Democratic beyond all question, and
- to have with certainty three of the
officers certain to be elected In view
of the fact that there are a thousand
and -one., ruwors and misstatements
being -msde -every hour in the day
about this lmportant matter, it may
not be. uninteresting to give in full
the facts a%nd fgures, as obtained. fro!m
unquestioned authority, to show that
the Democracy have the very best
of reasons for claiming the organiza
tion, and that the alleged dissensions
are without foundation..
The House, when 'complete, is con
posed of 293 voting meinbeis. The
Territorial Delegates are not included.
They have no vote, and do not go into
party caucus. .

All .the.above States are in full and

that there are 130 Republicans and
123 Democrats, making a total of 253.

It will be thus seen that, there are
-nine seats disputed in the above seven
States. -Those on the roll, though,

*four Democrats. .: Add these to the
nmber given. in -the first table, and
the figures will stand 137 Republicans
to 147 Democrats, making a fdtal of
28Vindisputed and uncontested seats
oirt of 293., By this showing, the
.emorats have ten majority, leaving
out all the, nine contested cases. That
is to say, even if Clerk Adams does
not place upon the roll the names of.
either party, -leaving the House to be
the judge of the -cases after its organi
THE NINE.. CONTEBST$.
The districts in Louisiana in dis
pute are the Third, Acklin (Dem.)
vs. Darrell (Rep.), and the Fourth
District, Elan (Demn.) and Smith
-(Rep.). The Fifth District will be
iepresented by Leonard (Rep.), while
the Sixth will be represented by :Rob
ertson (Dem.); the First by Ellis
(Dem.),.and the Second by Gibson.
-(Demu.) The two ~disputed districts
11l not go on the roll. The others
are already on the roll.
The Colorado dispute is between
Petterson (Dem.). and Belford (Rep.).
The iatter'was elected in' October and
-the former in November. The dis
pute is in which month should the
.election have been held. Neither of
-these contestants will go .on the roll.
The Florida dispute is in the Sec
ond District, and-is between Finney
(Demn.) and Bisbee (Rep.). The
Democrat from the First District is
on., the roll and undisputed. It is
probable that Finney's name will be
-placed on the roll, although it is not
The Missouri case is between Met
endfe, Republican, and -Frost, Demo
e rat. The .majority was. o.ne, and
fraud was charged, and the case is in
-the Couirts in Missouri. Neither of
the contestants will go on the roll.
A one-miaj6dt contest is also the
-dispute in California. It is in the
Fourth District, and is between Wig.
giuton, Democrat, and Pacheco, Re
publican. It is reported here, but
not offiially, that the latter has won
the case. As yet neither name is on
the roll, and it is yet uncertain what
will be done in the ease.
In South Carolina there are three
names o~n the roll-one Republican
and two Democrats. The First and
* Fifth IDistricts are disputed. In the
First it is between Rainey, Repub'
*can, and Richardson, Democrat, and
in the. Fifth District it is between
Smialls, Repubican, and Tillman,
i)emocrat. If either of these con
testants go on the roll there is good
reasoni to state that the Demaocra'.s
will be the lucky ones.
The contest in Virginia is in the
Fourth District, and lies between Jor
es;sen, Renublican. and Hinlin, Deum
-oerat. This is the Petersburg Dis
tricit. where Gen. Grant ordered the
troops to go. Neither of these names,
it is understood; will go on the roll.
- -Out of these nine cases it is not
inprobable that three Democrats will
go on the roll and two Republicans,
leaving four off; and with this suppo
sition carried out the roll will be call
ed by Clerk Adams with 151 Demo
erats and 139 Republicans, a majority'
* for the Democrats of 12. It can be
-accepted as a positive fact that it will
be no less than L~.

A Much Needed Law.
There should be a law passed re
quiring all executors and trustees
before taking charge of devised es
tates to give bond, just as adminis
trators do. The reason for giving
bond is greater in the case of exec
utors than in that of administrators,
because the former are appointed
by one man according to his own
judgment and opinion of the ap
pointee's fitness, whereas the latter
can seldom be appointed except by
the concurrent approval of several
persons. The former are frequent
ly appointed by a man on his death
bed, when his mind is not in a pro
per frame for looking closely after
worldly affairs ; the latter are ap
pointed by men in ful vigor of
mind, and with the consent of those
who are specially interested.
Many an orphan has been brought
from riches to poverty by the in

ecutors and trustees
We paid a short visit last week
to Laurens, and found that up
country village pursuing the even
tenor of its way, watching, waiting
and longing for the railroad that it
needs so much. There appeared
to be very little business doing.
Stores look dilapidated and only
half filled. The place will never
prosper-cannot-till it has some
railroad connection with the outer
wold. Thus the Capital of one of
the wealthiest and most intelligent
counties in the State languishes
and drags along a dull existence
merely from the lack of a little pub
lic spirit and enterprise.
The county offices are all filled
by good men.
The Town Council are putting a
neat picket fence around the Court
House at a cost of $175.
Shade trees have been planted
all over the public square.
One peculiarity about Laurens
is, that.during all the days of her
misfortune the price of ,real estate
has stood at high figures. While
store rent is low, houses and lots
command as good prices as in any
other town in the State.
We hope our neighbors will soon
get their railroad.

the President of the United States the
concurrent resolution adopted by the
General Assembly invoking Executive
clemency, and I hereby have the
honor to cotumunicate his reply.
WADE HAMPTON, Governor.
WASHINGTON, D.C., May 12,1877.
To GOV. WADE HAMPTON : I am
informed by the Attorney-General
that he has instructed the District
Attprney for South Carolina to pre
pare for trial only three indictments in
the Ellenton cases, and to notify the
parties in all other cases that they
need not prepare for trial. It is pos
sible that only one case will be tried.
The fa.t that the indictments were
found by the grand jury, composed of
both political parties, seems to justify
the assumption that the prosecutions
are not partisan. I agree with you
that a general amnesty should extend
to all political oifenses except those
which are of the gravest character.

THE CHEAPE~ST FAsHrON MAGAZINE.
Among the meritorious publications devoted
to the subject of Fashion, we would inlvite
the attention of our lady readers to one,
wvhichm we think possesses in a large degree
the cssentials of a perfect work-viz., corn
mon sense and taste. We refer to "EHR1cHS
FAsHION QUARTERLY," the "Spring" num
ber of which has just reached us.
It will be found instructive, useful, beauti
ful, valuable. The very low subscription
price at which it is issued will surprise our
lady readers when thbey examine its contents.
The leading idea of the work, the present m
tion of a reference book and illustrated cata
loguc of the contents of their great establish
tnent, is handsomely conveyed; and the fund
of information, instruction, and thought
thercto added will make it welcome in all
homes where taste and refinement dwell.
The beauty of its illustrations, the topics so
ably presented by its able lady contributors,
its practical comimon-sense suggcstions,above
all, the value of its price-list, make it the
best investment we have seen in its line. Nc
household should be without it.
To Fortune's favored ones it offers mani
fold attractions in its choice and rare styles
pertaining to the wardrobe and personal
adornment. To those in moderate circum
stances opportunity is given for a display of
the same refinemeut of taste, though it may
be in humbler objects. To all who seek to
learn, to cultivate the beautiful, aud to ado.rn
"home'" and the "loved ones" it will be
found a mine of infor mation. The "Spring'
number, a large volume of 116 pages, is well
worth the whole year's subscription price,

While down upon the coast I went swe
out upon the salt to enjoy a matutinal not
meal that Neptune himself would have the
left the naiads and taken his trident fac,
many miles from his coral palace to the
enjoy. Leaving the quiet city before auc
the tapers of the stars were put out, by
and passing the sturdy sentinels, Sum- far
ter and Noultrie, now no longer aflame ton
with tongues of fire, we reached old prc
ocean in time to see the sun rise from ern
his boundless bed of waters to sprin
kle with a free, full hand his priceless
treasures over sea as well as land.
Placing a pilot aboard a barque that
rode upon the crested waves "like a
thing of life;" the bow of our trim
little craft was turned toward the fish- Li
ing banks, and in due time trout, por- gri
gies, black and other fish were "fry- rai
ing" in the pan. In all the gastro wi
noinical range fish are the only animals en
that should be eaten almost literally th<
alive. Their plump, juicy sides are coi
submitted at once from the sea to the Au
"scotching" and thence to the palate
from a hot plate. . tio
We enjoyed the breakfast, as a mat- of
ter of course, under the influence of of
an appetizing air, and the novelty of my
the scene; but a little "chopping *
around" of the sea, lulled us into pr<
"lassitude" by the "wail" of the wave, ize
when a gallant friend, somewhat jut
nautical, sought to enliven us with if 1
a buoyant story. He gave it as his pr<
opinion that perpetual motion can dir
alone be found on the ocean ; and de- Ur
monstrated with mathematical nicety -
that by utilizing the winds and waves th;
above in their undulation, oscillation an
and translation, and the action of the tb4
currents beneath, he could produce a sal
buoy that would ring its own bell and ari
blow its own whistle "forever and gr<
aye!" Whereupon "five miles" of fa
schooners, brigs, barques and ships thi
would never more wait a week in the all
Charleston channels and offing upon tb1
the fearful fog.
There is truth and millions, as se
