A PERTINENT QUESTION.-A great deal
of foss ia made over the esposare of a
few knavish carpet-baggers who sold
their cadetahips, and thus participated
in the general corruption of the mon who
mado carpot-bagism a national institu?
tion. Tho Chicago Times puts the mat?
"Does the foot that a Congressman has
procured the appointment of a man to
any office, from whom he has received
money, convict him of selling tho ap?
pointment? Did Grant receive money
from A. T. Stewart? Did Grant receive
money from Collector Orinnel? Did
Grant reoeive a house from ez-Seoretary
Bone? Did Grant reoeive a valuable
library from Attorney-General Hoar ? If
selling eade ts hi ps be such rottenness,
what shall be said of the sale of Cabinet
THE MORMON PROBLEM.-The New
York Times is opposed to the application
of force as a solution of the Mormon pro?
blem. So long as Mormonism is a reli?
gious and moral fault, that paper very
reasonably contonda, we must combat it
with religious and moral influences.
Christ's Gospel cannot be preached by
artillery and riflemen. The moment we
war upon a religion wo make it a power,
gire it new Ufe, stimulate its friends,
arouse dormant compliance into enthu?
siastic devotion and sympathy, attract
followers and converts, and, in the end,
fail in the effort of aggression. We think
with the Times, that the "ism" will die
ont if we let it alone. Brigham Young
will die before long, and with the many
elements of disintegration at work among
them, the saints will hardly survive him.
is stated that Mr. Whittemore, of South
Carolina, who resigned his seat in Con?
gress on Wednesday, and next day re?
ceived a vote of censuro on aocount of
the cadetship transaction, is going
directly home, and if his friends seo fit
to put bim io nomination for his old
position, he will probably a cc opt.
(Hardly probable. His colored friends
seem disposed to give him the cold

ASHAMED OF TH STU COLOR.-The
Washington New Era, the new organ of
tho colored interest, and edited by color?
ed meu, describes Salnavo as being "iu
personal appearance a lino representa?
tive of our race." In proof of this asser?
tion, the Neut Era says: "Ho had the
brown and velvety complexion of an In?
dian, softonod and refined by civiliza?
tion; hi?, huir was black and silk.it, his
moustache thick and tufted, and his
stature that of au athlete." Now, the
negro raco of which tho New Era claims
to be the organ, is not distinguished by
the "brown and velvety complexion of
an Indian," nor by "silkif" hair. They
aro black, and their hair is short, woolly
and tightly curled. Wo do not say this
in derision, but because it is the simple
The New Era ought not to bo ashamed
of the color or the hair bestowed by na?
ture upon its race. Tho negro is uot
an Indian. Those of mixed blood have
the complexion and hair described
above-nnd can no moro bo claimed as
specimons of tho negro than of tho white
or Indian races. They aro mongrels.
MURDER.-A report reached ns yester?
day, that a few evenings since, thc
wife of llio Rev. Mr. Rawlins was shot
through the window, and killed by a
colored boy, discharged tho day pre?

Mr. Rawlins isa Northern man, and in
charge of a colored Methodist Chinch,

A NEGRO STABBED IN HAMBURG.
Hamburg is proverbial for negro rows.
At ono of theso gatherings, on Sunday
night, a negro numed Preston Sims,
hailing from Columbia, S. C., was se?
verely cut in tho back during tho pro?
gress of a row, by a mulatto named Gus.
The wounded negro was brought to this
city and placed in the Freedmen's Hos?

Somebody has said that "Wo ought

Mexico is now io the enjoyment of a
lull-blown civil war. The insurgents
are soroly pressing the Government
troops, and Juarez is compelled to resort
to force in order to fill the depleted ranks
of his army. Throughout tho republic,
affairs are in a state of confusion border?
ing on anarchy. A new President is
suggested in opposition to Juarez, with
tho seat of Government at Calientes.
Secretary Seward's visit and speeches

is not alone in this drain; Columbus has
sent out to her surroundings fully that
number, or more, in tho last four months.

A servant girl, who had jost been ad?
monished by her mistress to be very
careful in "washing np" the best tea
things, was overheard shortly afterwards,
in the back kitchen, indulging in the
following soliloquy, while in the act of
wiping the sugar basin: "If I was to drop
this 'ere basin, and was to catch it, I
'sposo I shouldn't catch it; but if I was
to drop it, and wasn't to catch it, I
reckon I jost should catch it."
After the successful attack of Colonel
Baker on an encampment of hostile In?
dians in Montana, ono big fellow was
found alive in his tepee, who bad killed
two of his squaws with bis knife and
pilod their dead bodies over himself to
hide him. This is an act of stratagem,
meanness and cowardice unexampled
even in Indian history. It is unneces?
sary to say that the wretch did not live
long after he was found in this condition.
COMTLIMENTAKY.-A radical editor in
Alabama says an Alabama legislator can
be bought "at a price th^t would have
been a disgrace to a slave before the wor. "
It is understood that in the Georgia Le?
gislature, the prico of a good negro
would buy from ten to a dozen. In Flo?
rida, ten dollars is considered a fair price
for a radical Senator or Assemblyman.
The Pennsylvania Cemetery contains
seven graves side by side, in which re?
pose the lifeless remains of a man and
his six wives. When the first wife died,
tho third was threo years old, and the
fifth an infant of twelve months; while
tho last wife was not born until the year
following tbe death of the first.
The duties on tea, coffee and sugar
yield a revenue of $55,000,000, while
those on all other articles in the tariff do
not exceed $105,000,000. This is the
way radical politicians protect the
masses. High duties on the necessaries
of life, low duties on luxuries.

KOSKOO.-Tho Norfolk Daily Journal, of
December ll, 18G9, says:
"ThiB medicine is rapidly gaining confi?
dence of tho psoplo, and the numerous testi?
monials of its virtues, given by practitioners of
medicino, leaves no doubt that it is a safe and
reliable remedy for IMPVBITY OF TUE IJLOOD,
L1VEB DISEASE, Ac."
Tho last Medical Journal contains an arti
clo from Prof. R. 8. Newton, M. D., President
of the E Modi-College, city of New York, that
apeaks in high terma of its curativo proper?
ties, and gives a special recommendation of
Koakoo to tho practitioners of medicine.
This is, wo believe, the first instance where
such medicines havo been officially endorsed
by tho Faculty of any of the Medical Colleges,
and rcfiectB great credit upon the skill of Dr.
Lawrence, its compounder, and also puts
"Koskoo" in tho VAX of all other medicines
of thc present day. F2G
A FEMALE Ii KG ri. VI OK.-Woman and her
uecda. For complaints and irregularities to
which her sex is exclusively liable, HEiNrrsn's
QUEEN'S DELIOUT is recommended on the au?
thority of wivea, mothers and nurses, who have
tested its tonio and regulating properties, and
"know whereof they speak;" and also with the
sanction of ablo physicians, who have admi?
nistered the QUEEN'S" DELIOUT to their female
patients, in obstinate cases, with the happiest
results. Almoat all female complaints arc
complicated with mental gloom and despon?
dency, tho gentle and lasting exhilarating
effects of tho QUEEN'S DELIOUT is admirably
adapted to auch casca. Aa a remedy for hys?
teria and mental d?pression, it has no equal
in the world. Nursing mothers find it an ad?
mirable invigoraut. It ia highly satisfactory
that this preparation should prove so emi?
nently beneficial to tho sex. Young and old
will find relief always. For sale by FISHER A
