We want no stronger evidence to
show that the fool-idller is dead than
the more fact that the editor of the
Washington Jlepublican isn't.
A correspondent writes to ask us
who John Noble is. He is the howl
ing racoon of Jackson's Purchase,
and can swallow more sorpents, whip
more wild cats, and cut the pigeon
wing over more red-hot bars of iron
than any skunk or lizard in Southern
It is said that aimong the statutes
of Massachusetts is an unrepealed
law which lines a young mnn for

The Washington 14'ulican says;
"The number of editow s of Northern
Republican newspaperp, whon it
wore base flattery to call idiots, is
constantly increasing." This the
editor of the Republican might have
nnticipated when he placed himself
at the head of the list.
They say that the ladies are now

Grant's central or'ga-n, the Wash
ington Repuldican, tells its readers
that it is the avowed purpose of tho
Mississippi Democrats to carry that
State at the next election through
extormination or forciile in timida
tion of the negro voters. If the
physical proportions of the editor
of the Jrulbican were but half
equal to his capacity to lie, he would
be compelled to- stoop, Ftinding
flat-footed, to hang his liat on the
dome of the capitol.

"ugh" from "though," as "u" was1
dropped from "labor," "honor'," and
"valor," amid "k" from "almanac,"

miinutes anid money are lost in writ

adhere to thme phomnetic rule of let

The suggestions of Judge Mackoy
to the Grand Jury at the opening of
the present term of court, the strong
endorsement of these suggestions by
the Grand Jury, and the instructions
delivered by his Honor when the re
port of the Grand Jury had been
read, give assurance, to a dead cor
tainty, that the days, or rather the
nights of these receivers of stolen
goods will soon end. Under those
instructions, the Grand Jury, upon
evidence being furnished will indict
as a nuisaneo any person who buys
at night, tany agricultural product,
cotton corn, wheat, potatoes, or any
thing e!se, whether stolen or not.
T~e romedy, we bolieve, will be a
inenltiah% sovereign one. The crops
of the country being exposed to the
depre latio's of sneak thieves and
night prowlers, and the manipula
tions of night-buyers, should be, and
are, the object of the law's spoeial
proteotion. Judge Mackey is de
terniriied tha t the fullest protection

The Prince of Wales has mado all

He will cross the channel and pro

lie will meet the vessel and embtrk,

question of tie Prince's costume has
been decided upon, and lie will
