Tho New York World keeps up its pro?
voking analysis of tho adulteration iu almost
every article in Now York city that enters
into the consumption of families. It would
appear from this expone that about every?
thing which men cat u?d drink in New
York is adulterated. All the daily necessa?
ries usually found iu grocers' establishments
aro subject to adulterations and short
weights, whilst the result of the examina?
tion of tho liquors is fearful. The adulte?
ration of liquor with water is one of the
most innocent frauds in that article.
Chemical analysis of some of the samples
of liquor sold in New York disclose ingre?
dients so deleterious, not to say poisonous,
that veteran topers hold up their bandi: in
dismay, and are inclined to make their wills
before venturing on another drink. Whilst
with tho monstrous revenuo frauds, the
enormous Erie stock swiudles, tho spring
trap of tho New York Central in its laige
80 per cent, dividend, all tho ingenious and
artful manipulations of the many railroad
securities and stocka which figure iu tho
New York stock exchange, the alleged bal?
lot-box stuffing and illegal voting, the whole
atmosphere of New York seems to bo foggy
with frauds and false appearances. Whilst
the World keeps up its fire against tho adul?
terations and short-weights, tho Herald
turns its batteries upon tho World for what
it calls its crusade against the grocers nud
traders of New York. Thc editor says:
"Merchants from a distance, will not come
to New York to make their purchases, if
these mendacions Bohemians keep up their
infamous attacks. Tho country press is
filled with reports of these libels, with com?
ments whioh show that tho impression is
beginning to prevail that it is dangerous to
buy certain articles in New York; and it
will no doubt bo ruado to appear before long
that it is dangerous to como to New York at
all. This feeling tho merchants iu Boston,
Philadelphia, Baltimore, Ciucinnatti, Chi?
cago, St. Louis and other largo places where
the dealers strive to keep the trade of their
own country districts as much to themselves
as possible, will undoubtedly eucourago-so
that the business of tho city "is in great
danger of being permanently injured bj
THE B?KS ci" lins STATE.-Tue Charles?
ton News gives the following as the grounds
on which the injunction against Goveruoi
Scott, to prevent him from issuing bonds t<
the bill-holders of the Bank of the State, h
to be applied for:
1. Because the provision contained in tin
Act which authorizes tho bonds, requirinj
tho Governor to take possession of tin
assets of the bauk, is a condition preceden
to tho issuing of the bouds.
2. Because thc Apt is unconstitutional
inasmuch us it does not comply with th
requirement of the Constitution prohibitiuj
tho Legislature from passing Acta creatiuj
money obligations, without, at the sam
time, laying a tax by which to provide fo
meeting tho same.
3. Booauae the usual formalities of legis
latiou were not complied with in the pa;
sage of the Act.
1. Because the Act is contrary to the di
reotion of the late Constitutional Oonvot
tion to the Legislature, to examine into th
liabilities of the bank and make provisio
for the same.

however, show that in the grandeur and

A Washington correspondent, who has
beeu looking into tho business, reports that
150 railroad bills and resolutions have been
introduced in tho fortieth Congress, (the
term of which expires on the 4th March
next, with that of Preside ut Johnson,) and
that twice as many more are in preparation
in thc lobby; that 1,000,000,000 of acres of
the public lands and 6200,000,000 in United
States bonds would not supply the demands
of these cormorants. In other words, their
stupendous budget of railway jobs would
require sops and subsidies in lauds ?lid
bonds which, reduced to a moucy valuation,
swell up to the magnificent figure, of half
tho uational debt.
Among the jobs of this schedule, is tho

having feathered its nest to the figure of

this company is reported to be a mere gang
of speculators, "without any kuuwu legal
organization whatever"-a lot of mythical

Death of General Lovell II. Roauraa, 1
The news of the death of General Lovell
H. Rousseau will bo received with profound !
sorrow by nearly every person in the
country who enjoyed his personal acr uaint
tanoe, or uro familiar with the noble truits
iu the character of the deceased. At tho
timo of his death he was, wo believe, the
junior (in rank) Brigadicr-Goneral in the
regular army, and.was in commund of me
Military District of Louisiana, with bead
quarters at New Orleans, where he had won
tho respect of everybody, save a nest of
pestiferous politicians, who would, but
could not, uso bim against the people he
was sent to protect. The deceased was a
Keutuckiuu. and served as captain of a
company of Kentuckians in the Mexican
war. At the breakiug out of the late war, ho
was a member of tho Senate of his State,
from thc city of- Louisville. With Critten?
den, Guthrie, Prentice, Ilarvey and other
I citizens of that Stnte, he espoused the causo
of tho Union, und at once tendered his ser?
vices to tho Government. He won unfad?
ing laurels at Shiloh, Parryville and Mur
freesboro, and loug before thc end of tho wur
was com missioned a Major General of volun?
teers. The deceased waa for a long time
Commander of the District of Middle Ten?
nessee, with bead-quarters at Nashville,
where he won thousands of friends among
Confederate families for the generous patri?
otism which he on ull occasions extended to
those who were subjected to annoyances
and outrages. He was the implacable foe
of all bummers, and much preferred to save
than destroy. Yet the Confederacy had no
more consistent, determined or brave
ouemy than Lovell H. Rousseau.
At the close of the war, haviug been
elected to the thirty-ninth Congress, ho
sustained the policy of President Johnson,
though not identifying himself with the
Democratic party. In 1860, he cuued a
reverend member of Congress from Iowa,
for calling in question bis military course,
for which tho House passed resolutions of
censure; Ifut his constituent?-Confederates
and all-unanimously re-elected him. Soon
after, President Johnson nominated him to
n vacant Brigadiersbip in the regular army.
After a struggle, he was confirmed without
the sacrifice of bis conservativo principles.
Tho people of Now Orleans were much in?
debted to the deceased for his discreet con?
duct during tho late riots in that city.
In his death tho country loses one of its
bravest officers; bis family a devoted hus?
band and father, and bis friends one who
would uever desert them under any circum?
stances. He was incapable of a mean net,
and hated mean men. Generous, noble,
bravo and true himself, he had little use
for those who did not possess some of these
qualities. Tho deceased was about fifty

SOUTHERN DOCILITY.-Since the remarka?
ble era whon the pigs ran about with knives
and forks in them, begging to be eaten, wc
have seen nothing at all to bo compared tc
tho docility of the South-that is, if tho radi?
cal press is tobo believed. They all appeal
delighted down there with the admirabh
workings of reconstruction, negro suffrage,
military domination. Are. Surely thc
sublime patience of St. Lawrence is snr
passed by -these former rebels. After thc
saint bad lain some time extended on hil
red-hot gridiron, be calmly said to the exe
cutioner, "Will you bavo tho kindness ti
turu mo, os I am quito done on the uudei
side?" The executioner, a trifle astonished
did as he was requested, and soon afte
the saint, again speaking, said, "I'll bi
obliged if you'll take mo up-I am dono ti
a turn, and now in a fit condition for eat
ing." But tho coolness and composure o
this renowned saint under his fier}' persecu
tion is surpassed by these Southern saints
who have been grilled so loug on thc red
hot gridirons of radicalism. Forney say
they ure delighted, enraptured with thei
new condition, and hnvo distilled blessiug
out of what they formerly conceived to be
curse. The iron, it was true, might hav
been hot, but it has done them to a turn.
Committees are already in Washington, an
moro are making ready to como, to beg c
Congress to continue them in tho conditio
a wiso radical policy bas wisely placed thoi
in. Surely this is a foretokening of tin
political millennium which is to be ushere
