-Last week a passenger train on the West
Wisconsin Railroad met with a startling adven?
ture near the Town of Tomah. A fire in the
woods had communicated to a pile of about
five hundred oak tics, seasoned two years,
which laid alongside Hie track. A curve in
the road concealed the danger from thc engi?
neer till/ he was nearly at the fire. He imme
diately Whistled "down brakes," but seeing
that this would Btop him in the fire, he
whist ied "off brakes," and putting on ail steam
possible, determined to run the gauntlet. The

e lusumed, that the engine was soon thrown
irom. the track, bumping along on the ties Hil
it was finally brought to a halt, with thc en
. gine and tender just through the fire, and a

-A cable dispatch asserts that the discus?
sion upon the Infallibility dogma is now being
carried on with considerable warmth, and the
argument, lt is thought, will not be terminated
before the latter part of July. The following
purports to be a sketch of tho debate on Mon?
day: "The opposition first obtained the lloor,
and thc bishops of St. Brience and St. Gail
spoke against infallibility. Bishop C?lele, of
Roetaenbtirg, made an energetic appeal, de?
claring that three successive (Ecumenical
. Councils hud anathematized Pop? Honurius,
- denouncing him as a heretic. Prince Cardinal
. Schwartzenbursrreferred In language of con
* tempt to the excuses of partisans of the dog?
ma in their endeavors to explain away Hie
. truth and justice of the arguments against
Pope Honori a's affirmation that infallibility
' was most inopportune, because such argu?
ments were fidse and ill-founded. He quoted
from tho works of eminent theologians, ad?
ducing authority to prove that Popes could be
deposed for heresy. Cardinal Von Rauscher,
though a deputy, entered a strong protest in
behalf of society and the interests of the civil
government against any proceedings prejudi?
cial to the cause of freedom of thought and
action. The tenor of the document was blend?
ed with expressions ol devotion to the Holy
-The New York papers mention a remarka?
ble case of kleptomania, the kleptomaniac be?
ing a lady who devotes her leisure aud ability
to stealing parasols. It appears tiiat the wo?
man In question lias been married for some
four or Ave years, but lier husband till thc
present time hus never had tile least suspicion
of her singular tailings. Mrs. Smith-to call
her, for convenience sake, by a wholly im?
personal nauie-had in her large and elegant
h?rtsc a Uillc boudoir which she always kent
closely locked. When examined the other
day, by some detectives, the walls of this apart?
ment were found decorated with nearly a hun?
dred parasols of all sizes and varieties, from
the cheapest to the most expensive. There
were several richly decorated with lace, valued
at fifty dollars apiece. ?The kleptomaniac has
been several years forming this uniqne collec?
tion, and on one or two occasions, when de?
tected in Hie act by storekeeper?, managed to
hush up tho matter by restitution or purchase
of tiie stolen property. She had an odd habit
of giving names to her favorite parasols, se?
eding them from poems, novels and plays.
The latest addition to Hie stock-an elegant
white parasol with heavy fringe-was called
"Frou-Prou;" others bore labels with such
names as "Pickwick," "Little Dorrit," "Lady
of the Lake," "Elaine," "Clara Vere de Vere,"
"Evangeline," "Ophelia," "Rosalind," and Hie
like; and one large specimen, bordering on
the umbrella species, bore the gloomy name
of "Lady Macbeth." The husband of the lady
in question is undecided what course to pur?
sue in this curious emergency; as to the fair
kleptomaniac herself, she professes to bc
overwhelmed with contrition and remorse.
The family will certainly remunerate thc spo?
liated parasol dealers for their Josses, and the
matter will probably be hushed up.
Tl?c PMttlng-off Policy.
Any declaration of principles, or rule.? of
action, that may be put forth by the Reform
Convention, must include a recognition of
the civil and political equality of all citizens
of the State. Upon this point there is, we
presume, no difference of opinion. When,
however, the question before tho Convention
is the uomiuation of candidates for Governor
and Lieuteuatit-Governor, there will hardly
be, in the beginning, a similar unanimity of
sentiment. Some of the most influential
journals in thc State think it unwise for the
(Apposition party to make nominations as
early as the lf>lh of June, and here and there
a paper is found to recommend that no
nominations at all be made upon the general
ticket, in order that tho Reformers may con?
solidate their whole strength upon the legis?
lative and county canvass.
One main argument used by the Putting
off party is, that we can act with more cer?
tainty when we know the plans of the enemy.
Under other circumstances sucli an argu?
ment might have some force, but, in the
present case, its practical effect would be a
heavy loss of valuable time, without any
compensating advantage. Four months is
not too long a time for the work we have to
do. In one county alone-Union County
has any plan of organization been adopted.
Nor can wc expect that the counties, in gen?
eral, will move until our candidates are in
the field. Take this county as an example.
It is useless to attempt to form ward clubs
and township associations until we know
who is our standard-bearer, and what is Hie
banner under which we hope to march to
victory. Supposing that we postpone a nomi?
nation until uftcr tho adjournment of the
Radical Convention, we caunot possibly get
lo work earlier than the beginning of Au?
gust. In two months thc organization of
the whole State must bo perfected; iii two
months the State must be so thoroughly can?
vassed that, when election day comes, every
honest voter shall be ready to deposit his
ballot for the sturdy candidates or Retrench?
ment and Reform. Now, is it probable, is it
possible, that this gigautic task can be ac?
complished in a little over eight weeks ? We
say, unhesitatingly, that if the State canvass
do not begin until after the holding of the
Radical Convention, we shall go into Hie
contest with incomplete organization and
imperfect knowledge, and shall invite, and,
we fear, deserve a speedy overthrow.
And what are we promised as a compen?
sation for lying idle from June to August-as
a compensation for the loss of two months ef
precious time? If we wait, toe skull know
uko are the Radical nominees, and may.
perchance, pick up some defeated candidate,
or cast-off dependant of the party. This is
ail, in this direction, that wc may hope to
gain by procrastination, by hesitation, by
But all this we know without awaiting Hie
action of the RuuVcal Convention, winch as?
sembles in July. Governor Scott is to be
the nominee ot tin Ring for re-election. The
Missionary Record daunts his name at the
head of its dingy columns, and every Radi?
cal paper lu the State, (three, we believe,)
takes it for granted that Scott is the coming
man. AndJopkiug at the course of State
politics, at Tue removal and appointment of
State and county officers, at the organiza?
tion of the militia, at the manipulation of the
Railroad Riugs, and at the relations of the
present officials to the Executive, it cannot
be doubted that Governor Scott desires tobe
re-elected, that he has beeu working for
months to make his way straight, and that
he will bc the ready choice of the knot of
schemers who coutrol the Radical party.
This, then, is the whole case ia a nutshell.
If we defer the Reform nominations until
August, we shall kuow, before acting, who
are the RadicuL^uominees. Thia is all that
we get in exchange for two months wasted.
But we know already, to a moral certainty,
that Scott will be the Radical candida.tr>.
That is to say, by waiting until the heats of
summer we may know officially what we
kuow extra-officiully to-day. We attach no
importance to the suggestiou that there may
be opposition to Scott, and that we can take
up the man who has fruitlessly opposed him.
It is not likely that Scott will be opposed, if
opposed at all, by any but men of lus own
kidney, and to run a Mackey or u Moses
against Scott, would be, in truth, what the
Augusta Constitutionalist classically calls
"swapping a devil for a witch." Nor have
we any desire to take up auy mau us our
candidate whoso claim to distinction is, that
he ran against Scott In the nominating Con?
vention aud was decisively defeated. The
prestige of defeat we do not value or desire.
Unless, then, the Convention shall hear
more cogeut and conclusive arguments than
those we have discussed, there will be no se?
rous opposition, we luke it, to the imme?
diate nomiuatiou of able and honest candi?
dates, wbo may at otice open the canvass
with the stirring watchwords of Retrench?
ment and Reform.
The Grand Jury of Newberry County sav?
in their presentment "they are fully satisfied
"that there has been much malpractice with
"some of tiie public officers of Uiejcounty,
"and particularly with the commissioners
"and trial justices; bul they are not in pos?
session of such facU as will warrant them I
"in recommending proceedings to be com- '
'menced iu regard to them, or any of them,
'except in the case of Eagao, which is in
'the possession of the court already. They
'are convinced that, while some of the ac?
tions of so me of these oificers may have
"been prompted by sinister and corrupt mo
"tives. the greater part has been the result
"of ignorance and incompetence. The
"grand jury bestowed much of their time to
:'the examination of witnesses in relation to
"the receipts and expenditures of the public
"money, and called before them several of
"the oflicers and many other persons who
"were informed on the subject, and with one
..'exception, ail of them testified that the
"publicJunds of the county had been waste?
fully aud extravagantly expended."
Thc Land Commission Swindle.
The letter of "A Republican," published
in our issue of yesterday, fully confirms the
statement, made in our special dispatches a
week ago, that the Land Commission appro?
priated S120.000 for the purchase of a tract
of laud which only cost $30,000. The dif?
ference between the amount appropriated,
and the amount actually paid to the owner
of Hie land, is just $00,000, and this snug
sum is now in the hands of-somebody.
It is claimed by "A Republican" that
Governor Scott and Secretary Cardozo knew
nothing of Hie purchase, and that Hie re?
sponsibility rests with Mr. Attorney-General
Chamberlain, Mr. Treasurer Parker, and
Mr. Coniplroller-Geacral Nfcaglp. and tho
startling assertion is made that- the.S120,OOo
purchase was eiVccted by Mr. Lcslic7r;?tf?' lie"
liad resigned the office of Land Commissioner.
Tills, if true, aggravates Hie nefarious char?
acter of the whole transaction.
First of all, $120,000 is appropriated for a
purchase of land, and the seller of the land
gets only $30,000. This shows a gross neg?
ligence, it seems to us, on thc part of Hie
members of thc Ad vison*"- Board, who con?
sented to Hie purchase. Audit re3ts with
them to explain, to the public satisfaction,
what lias become of Hie missing ninety thou?
sand dollars. Nor can they .stop lhere.
Tliey must, in the second place, explain
low it is that the purchase was permitted
to bo effected by Mr. Leslie after his resig?
The charge is made by "A Republican"
that Senator Leslie had the lion's share of
thc ninety thousand dollars which is miss?
ing. This may be. Senator Leslie has been
pelted with accusations these many day;
But we cannot forget Hiat nothing lias been
publicly proved against the erratic senator,
and that, when he dared the assembled Sen?
ate to demand the reason of his resignation
from the Land Commission, no one of his
colleagues took up the gauntlet he defiantly
We hope that ali the transactions of Hie
Land Commission will be laid bare, but we
do not expect it. Tho Advisory Board dare
not proclaim to Hie people that Hie Land
Commission lias cost the State about half a
million dollars for Hie benefit of Jacks-in
ofiicc and needy land-owners. The secrets
of the Land Commission will not, we fear,
be known until late next winter.
Thc Charleston Stock Board.
It has been in contemplation for some
time past to organize a Stock Board in this
city, under suitable regulations, with Hie
view as well of protecting the public, as of
jiving greater regularity and precision to
thc transactions of the members. A num?
ber of meetings of tho different stock brokers
took place in Hie spacious hall in the rear of
the ollices of Messrs. Holmes &. Macbeth and
Louis McLuin, and on Wednesday the Board
was permanently organized, hythe election

dent; A. J. White, vice-president; T. Pi tick?
ner Lowndes, secretary and treasurer. Thc
following gentlemen are members of tho
Board: L. D. Dc5au3snre, J. M. Shackel
