' -The members of a family named Bprlnger I
havelaken heart of grace from tte example of
Mrs. Gaines in New Orleans, and put in their
claim for $80,00O',OOO worth Ol real estate in the
City of Wilmington, Del.
-The Dolly Varden ls simply bunched-up
overdress, cut in antique style, and made of j
any flowered material which most resembles I
old-.'ashlon chintz bedroom furniture.
-It is stated that forty thousand women of
Alsace and Lorraine have addressed a petition I :
to Prince Bismarck, in which they ask that i ?
their father* and sons be exempted from ser-1.

has been defeated In the French courts ina I
ault bro us ht by ioma Paris Jewellers to re?
cover o ne hundred and sixty-one thousand I'

to pay for. 11
-The -citterns of Richmond, Virginia, are j
taking active measures toward the erection I j
of aUrBt-ciass-hotel in that city. A meeting |>
was-held on Wednesday night, when lt ap-1 (
peared that over one hundred thousand dol-1,
lars .were pledged for the project. It will
probably be built on\he site or the old Spots- 11
-A very unfortunate Missourian went to a J(
masked ball, .danced several times with .a j :
charming domino, and Anally proposed an j <
elopement, which was agreed to. After thu j <
flight, he discovered to his horror that the I ?
lady was his wile. Those dealing in hair re- I j
newera, plaster and poultices would do well to j j
call at his bouse. j
. -Mr. Livingstone, an Indiana convict, Dav- (
lng a desire to regain his lioerty, fastened j '
himself In a bcx and was carried out of jaU. I -1
Unluckily, however, the box was laid on the <
grouncrhead downward, and the convict's feet I (
-instead of his head pointed toward the zenith, j
Being unable to extricate himself, he began (
to howl for assistance, and was soon escorted
to his former apar t me n t. J,
-^9ae of the results of the conflicting evl- j
dence cn the trial pf Mrs. Wharton for poison- j
lng General Ketchum, is the granting of a L
new trial to Dr. Schoeppe, of Pennsylvania, j
convicted of the murder ol Miss Steinecke by (
poison. It has been demonstrated that "ex- l
JD.'rb" may easily be mistaken as to the proofs \
of death by poison, and hence lt ls very likely \
that Dr. Echoeppe oe bis new trial, to take I j
place in Cumberland County, Pennsylvania, (
commencing on the 28lh ins-ant, will be ac- I
quitted. I j
-At the Roman. Catholic Cathedral, in L
Rochester, N. Y., on Sunday, the 7th Instant, ?

came with a greater equipage would And the ,
cemetery gates locked. Nor would funerals ;
be allowed ou Sunday If they could be con- ;
ven le ntly an uti ged for another day. Priests j
will not be permitted in funeral discourses to j <
Indulge ia any eulogy of the deceased. Those ?
Who did not like tr?ese regulations, the Bishop .
said, might have their funerals eutside the 11
walls of the church. j j
_.\-Says the Cincinnati Enquirer: "There is 11
again talk that ex-President Andrew Johnson ?
will be elected lo the. next Congress from one i ?
of the East Tennessee districts. He is In the j ?
prime of life-ls too ambitious in character I \
and aggressive in disposition-has ton many j
old resent men's which he wlshts to gratify- j j
to permit bim to remain permanently out ol I j
pub'.lc Ult?. The statement which has been j
made that no omer President ever took any (
other position after retiring from the presl- i
dency is a gross error." The Enquirer goes on |
to cite the casos.of Presidents Washington, L
. Adams, MadlsDn, Monroe, John Quincy i
Adams, Van Buren, Tyler and Fillmore, all of .
whom either served In public station or were :
prominent in political life after retiring from ,
the presidency. " j (
-The American press generally seem to I (
regard the sentence of the insane youth. Ar- ;
thur O'Connor, for frightening the Queen of J i
England, as unnecessarily harsh, In view of j
the circumstances. Aside from the unim- |
peached testimony given at the trial, tending ,
to show the Insanity ol the prisoner, the very t
tact that he assailed the Queen in a carriage ?
with an unloaded pistol, and demanded her to ?
sign a document which, signed or unsigned, j,
would have been equally worthless, is suf- J
Aclent evidence of Ids irresponsible condition
mentally. In this connection the case of the '
laborer, who snapped two pistols close to the 1
breastofGeneral Jackton, is recalled. The I
man was adjudged lusaue, because he could i
have.gained no possible advantage by theil
President's death. Queen Victoria now has \
an opportunity of exhibiting ber magnanimity ,
by remitting the sentence Imposed upon her (
Crazy assailant. .
-In the British House of Commons, on Fri
day. Cochrane denounced the International [
Society, an 1 s verted that the orders to burn 1
Paris and inaasave the hostages held by the J '
Commune emanated from the central body of I
the Internationale in London. He demanded j
that tb? government respect the representa?
tions of other powers, that England was the
asylum of Internationalists. Eastwick also
protested against allowing England to become
the refuge ol the political agitators of the
world. He characterized the publications o?
the International Society as revolutionary
and blasphemous, and declared th^m liable
to suppression under law,. Henry Fawcett
defended the society. Its principles were not
revolutionary. It was designed to protect
women and children in the factories, and de?
stroy monopolies. Other members spoke In
defence of trades' onions, with which, lt was
charged, the International Society was allied.
The City Debt Case.
The case of Alva Gage and others against
the City Connell, Involving the right of the
City Council to levy taxes for the payment of
the interest and principal of the city debt |
contracted, many years ago, in aid of rail?
road companies, was dismissed yesterday by
Judge Graham. It has always been very
clear to ns that the holders of the city stocks
affected by this case could not, with justice,
be stripped of their property because of any
supposed shortcomings on the part of some
bye-gone City Council. The subscriptions to
the railroad companies, when made, were
believed to be for the good ol the city; the
interest was regularly paid as it fell due;
there was no protest or objection of which
we have heard. And there would have been
no attempt, at this time, to shake off the
railroad debt, only that the results of the
war have made the total city debt extremely
hard to carry. We are as anxious as any
one can be to lighten the burden of taxa?
tion; but any relief obtained at the price of |
the good faith and financial integrity of the
city would be dearly bought. This may not j
be the legal view of the subject; bot it is old- [
fashioned honesty, all the same.
The' Cine i a nat J Convention.
At the time of the organization of the j
Beform party in South karolina, two years
ago, we ventured to i JKBB the opinion
that the example then set would be follow?
ed in other States, and that, all the country
over, the faithful citizens of the Republic
would be found banding themselves together j
for the purification c" the government It j
is trne that the Reform movement in this j
State was a failure; partly because or the J
frauds at the polls and in canvassing the ?
vote, and partly because the Democracy
themselves nominated a gubernatorial can?
didate, instead of contenting themselves
with sustaining any liberal and capable man
who might have been nominated by the Re?
form Republicans. But the Conservative
movement in Virginia bad been splendidly
successful; the Liberal Republicans of Mis?
souri, with the aid of the Conservative J
Democrats, won a grand victory for Am?
nesty and Beform, and in this Palmetto j
State public opinion waa BO ripened and
strengthened that the people are ready to?
day to co-operate with any body of citizens
who are honestly desirous of giving the Com?
monwealth a puro and frugal government.
The Democrats of South Carolina will not
become members of the Republican party.
Their aims and purposes are higher than
these of mere politicians. They do not
seek office. They demand intelligent and
?qual legislation. They demand the cleans?
ing of the public service from the corruption
pr the ignorance which extends from the
:hief places to those of least moment
They demand, the reduction of the public
expenses to the lowest point, and the faith
ul collection and distribution of the moneys
)f the Stale. And what the Democratic
ninority demand in South Carolina, the
Liberal Republicans strive for in the North
tnd West In these glowing words, Senator
Carl Schurz, at the New York meeting, ex?
plained the objects of the Liberal Republi?
"We shall rally for a common effort those
vhose convictions ol duty are net at the dis?
posal of personal or party dictation. We shall
nslst and take good care that none of tbe
ogical and legitimate results of the war be
mperllled; that the settlement of past differ?
ences, as embodied in the constitution, be
nalntalned; that the equality of human rights
>e held inviolable; that the national creditors
)e assured their dues to the utmost farthing.
3ut we shall insist, also, whatever the behests
>f those who attempt to rule us, that those
vbom we have overcome In the civil war
itali be treated with a policy of Impartial Jus"
.ice, appealing to the best impulsea of human
nature; we shall insist upon the employment
)f those legal and moral agencies, which are
calculated to revive fraternal feeling among
?ll the people, and a patriotic spirit of nation?
ality throughout the land; we shall Insist that
the Hag of this Republic wave over all its Citi?
zens as the symbol of equal rights and equal
protection; we shall insist that the robbers be
discountenanced who suck the marrow of the
Southern people, under whatever party name
they may do lt; we shall insist that corruption
be orushed wherever it may appear; we shall
insist that the people be relieved of unneces?
sary burdens, and all forms of odious oppres?
sion; we shall lasist that ours is a conBiltution
il government, whose fundamental principles
ind established forms must be sacredly main?
lined at any cost, and whose laws, constitu?
tionally framed, are higher authority tban the
pleasure ot any man or any party ; we shall
nsist that the self-government of the people,
:he very foundation of republican Institutions,
?hall be kept Inviolate In its legitimate sphere :
?ve shall insist that the insidious and unconsti?
tutional intermeddling of lhe central power
with local concerne and individual rights shall
ae stopped ; we shall Insist that the publ'c Ber?
nice of the country ls instituted for the com?
mon benefit of all the people, and nothing
else, and that it must cease to bea slavish ma?
chinery to partisan Interest or the aspirations
of personal government ; we shall insist that
the dangerous and unrepubllcan system be
broken down by which the will of factions or
men in power can Impose itself upon the
masses of the people ; we shall insist that j
avery public servant shall be held to a strict
account under the laws of tbe eountry ; we
shall insist that there shall be no slavery nor
involuntary servitude in this country, neither
moral nor physical."
This is a platform npon which the citizens
pf South Carolina may safely stand-one
which they can cordially and cheerfully sus?
tain. And if the Cincinnati Convention
move upon this line, and the National De-1
mocracy refrain from committing the error j
which mainly caused the defeat of the South
Carolina Reformers in 1870, a vote will be
mst in South Carolina for the candidates of
the Cincinnati Convention which will aston?
ish the men who believe that there is noth?
ing left of life or of energy in this persecu?
ted bot hopeful State.
We may expect, cf course, that an effort
will be made to stigmatize as traitors all Re?
publicana who feel that there is nothing to
be hoped for from the Grant party, and who
are ready, therefore, to fight with Greeley,
and Schurz, and Trumball and Fenton and
their colleagues under the banner of Amnes?
ty, Anti-Centralization, Purification and
Revenue and Civil Service Reform. But
what will the organs of the administration
be able to accomplish when they endeavor
to blacken the character of a man like
Schurz, who wore the Federal uniform with
distinction, and has always been a staunch
Republican ? This one upright statesman
has more supporters in the mighty West
than the combined apologists of the admin?
istration. What can the Grant party say
against a man like Lyman Trumbull, who
stoutly battled for bia party until he saw
that ita ruling spirits were driving the coun?
try headlong to a centralized despotism ?
What can they say against the Greeley s and
Fentons who were leaders in the Republican
party when President Grant was still in ob?
scurity? It is absurd to talk of it Sixty
thonBand office-holders have immense power,
but they cannot control a people who know
their danger and see their opportunity.
The confidence of thoughtful patriotic men
in the Cincinnati Convention is stronger
every hour. Only a recalcitrancy on the
part of ita leaders, which we have no canse
to expect, and a wrongheadedness on the
part of the Democracy, which we have little
reason to fear, can prevent it from naming
men whom all the opposition can vote for,
and who shall then be triumphantly elected.
IN ANSWER to several correspondents, we
oeg to Bay that the charge of twenty-five
cents for Issuing a license is expressly au?
thorized by Section 15 of the License law,
which Bays tbat the county auditor "shall
"receive the sum of twenty-five cents from
"the person, company or corporation receiv?
ing the 6ame, as compensation for taking
"the returns and iesuiog the license provid?
ed for in thia act"
? WASHINGTON dispatch to the Baltimore
Sun says that a delegation of colored men
?rom South Carolina are in town nrging the
President to remove the Federal officials at
Charleston. Thia is the office-holding party
who agreed, at the State Radical Conven?
tion, to warn President Grant that he must
make a clean sweep of the respectable offi?
cials in thia State, if he desired to be voted
for by the Sooth Carolina delegates'to the
Philadelphia Convention. This is a favor?
able opportunity for getting seven votes
cheap ! _
THE Columbia Onion triumphantly prints
the number of votes cast by the Democrats
for the colored candidates at the Colombia
elections as a proof that the white people of
the State do break the promises which they
make to the colored citizens. There waa no
Democratic ticket In the field. In two of the
four wards, the same colored candidates
were npon both the Radical and the Con?
servative tickets. The Union's figures prove
nothing to the purpose, at the beat; but how
does our contemporary know for whom every
Democrat voted ?
f?o si titter's Bitters.
chronic Indigestion affected me stomach only, le
might be more easily borne; but lt gives rise In
evitably to many other diseases, affecting the
liver, the nerves, the bowels and the brain. Bil
lousnts?, nervous tremors, consilpation, head?
ache and terrible mental disturbances are among
Us usual accompaniments. In fact every organ,
every fibre of the frame sympathizes with the de?
bilitated and diseased stomach. What is needed
in such a case ? Clearly an alterative and in vigo?
ran t ; and among Medicines of that class HOS
TETTEK'S STOMACH BITTERS ls, beyond all
comparison or estimate, the best. Mere purga?
tives only deprive the system or the little strength
that dlsea-e has left lt. Salivants have the same
effect. The whole internal organism bas gone
wrong, and can only be put right and kept right
by a medicine la which the tonic and stimulat?
ing elements predominate, but are qoallfled and
modified by anti-billons aperients and blood
purifying components. Kow, the truth ls, (and
the medical faculty as well as the public know
the fact ) that Hos tetter's Bitters contain every
ingredient requisite tor the cure of dyspepsia and
all the ailments or body and mind which lt In?
volves. This has been proved In so many thou?
sands or Instances that it seems almost idle to re?
peat the statement.
The great tonic rallies exhausted nature, from
whatever cause enfeebled, and permanently re?
cruits the vigor of the nerves, the muscles and the
brain. Its effect npou the brain ls to give
streng..1 to the will and precision to the Judg?
ment, and to banish despondency and that Infir?
mity of purpose which generally accompanies
bodily weakness. apris-mwfsoac
