NKUO FIDDLING WHILST ROME IS BUBN
' INO.-It is currently reported that tho
Legislature adjourned yesterday, with
the view cf giving the members an op?
portunity to attend tho races. The ques?
tion arose as to whether the Speaker's
horse could trot faster than some other
horse. Whereupon the legislative ma?
jority, although the Legislature is
pressed for time, and important business
is before it, adjourns its regular session,
neglects the public business, and squan?
ders the publio money. Comment is
nnneceasary. Think of a legislative j
body, charged with publio interests, ne?
glecting, its business to attend a petty
Tn reply to some of Senator Sherman's
(of Ohio) ultra Radical reflections upon
the South, in the United States Senate,
several days ago, Senator Robertson
.^scd th? following emphatic laaguagc,
speaking of the Southern people's going
i o to the war of (secession :
"They went into it thinking thoy had
a right to do so. They fought in it as
.bravely and as honorably os the men
who fought against them. I, for one,
cannot sit here quietly and allow the
honesty and veracity and honor of the
,pcopio of the South, as a mass, to be
?impugned. As a people, they are as
honorable and bravo as the people of
<Ohio or the people of any other State."
True and timely wordB, fitly and
THB BLIGHT AND CUBSE OF SLAVERY.
How curious it is that Northern people
see the "blight and curse of slavery" iu
.everything at the South. If there is a
^particularly demoralized or thriftless
community or barren spot to be found
anywhere in this section of the conni ry,
the ever-ready "blight and curso of
.elovery" is at hand to be pumped up for
service by a mawkish sentimentalism
that is disgusting as well as ridiculous.
Au invalid who is seeking rest and resto?
ration in the delightful and invigorating
air of Aiken, S. C., writes the New York
Post, that in the landscape of this neigh?
borhood "the blight of slavery, whose
evil effects have by no means yet passed
away, finds in the gloom and waste
around it perfect expression." Yet this
same Northerner, who cannot resist tho
temptation of harping on the old string,
knows better, for in the next sentence
there jis an admission that "it is not
altogether tho result of a social system
that the region is barren and unattract?
ive," aud tho proper reason is given in
the fact "that the high and dry soil is
the condition of tho dry, bracing air that
makes the region peculiarly health?
ful." In this connection, it would be
pertinent, the Baltimore Sun thinks, to
ask how long this "blight of slavery"
will, in tho eyes of some Northern peo?
ple, olin? to the faoe of the country and
darken the sunny brightness of nature,
and also whether it is this same "blight
and curse," or some other "blight" than
that of slavery, which makes the hills of
New Eugland barren and forbidding,
and converts that region into a pince
?where there is neither "productiveness
for labor" nor "balmy air for invalids"
who ueed rest?
The New York Tribune, with unctions
malignancy, avails itself of the death of
.Gen. Magruder to indulge in a vindic?
tive aud malicious falsification of facts
about the private life of the dead sol?
dier. Magruder had his faults, but slan?
dering the dead was not one of them.
He had more honor aud courage, and
did "this nation" more service in Mexi?
co than the whole tribe of Tribune veg?
etarians aud free-lovers ever did in all
their lives. His military record, and
particularly the beating he gave that
Tribune pet, Beast Butler, at Big Rethol,
will be remembered when the political
and agricultural mumblings of that jour?
nalistic cabbage-munching old rabbit,
Greeley, have been forgotten. It's me?
lancholy to see au old ass go out of his
way to kick a dead lion wheu he might
just as well go on chewing his politico
PROPERTY OP CONFEDERATES TO BE
RESTORED.-The Supreme Court of the
United States lately rendered a decision,
iu which the Court declared to bo null
and void certain legal proceedings taken
before a court in Memphis, in 1863,
while that city was in possession of the
United States troops, against one Tho?
mas A. Nelson, a citizen of that place,
but then a resident within the lines of I
tho Confederate army. ' It was pro?
nounced by Mr. Justice Bradley-all the
Judges concurring, except Chief Justice
Chaso, who was absent. By this deci?
sion, no salo of property, mortgaged or j
not mortgaged, belonging to absout Con
federates, made by virtue of a decreo of !
any court within nuy place held by the
forces of tho United States, conveyed
any title to tho purchaser thereof. All
such sales and proceedings arc null and
void, and tho property must bo delivered
back to tho owner thereof, provided lie
was a resident in tho Confederacy and
adhered to tho Confederate States Go?
vernment, and thus unable to appear in
court in his own defence; this on princi?
pien of international law and under tho
laws of war.

The straits to which the Administra?
tion is driven in order to holster up tho
Dominican schome from being absurd,
have grown to be arousiog. The princi?
pal duty of the commission sont thither
wurd, outside of bug gathering, seems to
bethe manufacture of private letters, in
which au attempt to mako the most out
of a bud bargain, is too plainly desperate
to provo effective. Besides this, tho aid
of tho clergy has been invoked, and the
Rev. Dr. Yintou, who has been no near?
er to San Domingo than the island of
New Providence, has been induced to
write a letter advocating the project.
The Doctor's reasons for fooling away
several millions of dollars for this pur?
chase are very unique in their way. He
thinks San Domingo would make a
splendid sanatorium-a place for broken
down politicians and preachers to recruit
their health, though why they could not
visit it for this pnrposo as readily under
ono form of government aa another, ho
fails to explain. This hygienic conside?
ration, with its prospective benefits, uro
so thoroughly out of proportion to tho
cost, as to bu laughably ridiculous. Tho
same thing was attempted hy tho British
Government in the island of New Provi?
dence, which tho Reverend Doctor has
just been visiting. A magnificent hotel
was there erected at Government ex?
pense, without inducing a dozen English?
men to visit it for sanitary purposes dur?
ing any entire year. With a thriftless,
lazy population, untutored, uncleanly,
und almost uncivilized, Sun Domiugo's
productive resources will provo of hardly
moro beucfit than those of a sanitary
character.-New Orleans Times.
