During the debate in the Senato the
other day.on Mr, Sumner's social equal?
ity amendment, Mr, Wilson said that ?
the question of intermarriage between ,
the white and black races had been set?
tled in Massachusetts thirty years ago- ;
that the State had repealed her law on \
the subjeot at the time, and that all pre?
dictions of the dreadful results that were (
to follow had signally failed. In this \
Mr. Wilson was correot. It was feared (
that if the law prohibiting the marriage t
of white and black people in Maasachu- ]
setts were repealed, the negro men wonld j
want to marry the white women of tho (
State, but the fear proved to bo utterly j
groundless. The law was repealed, and \
the women who were anxiously awaiting ,
an opportunity to marry negroes under <
the sanction of legislative enactments ,
are waiting still. The "colored gentle- ,
men" of the State very justly concluded,
it would seem, that the white woman
who is willing to marry a negro is not fit
to be a negro's wife, and the result is a
very large majority of suoh women iu
that State still continue to repose their
weary, rheumatic and seemingly ema?
ciated limbs upon single bedsteads, with
"no one to love, none to caress."
NEORO EQUALITY.-The New York
Commercial, a Republican paper, makes
these very sensible remarks:
"Fred. Douglass, who was lately re?
fused admission to the Planters' Hotel,
St. Louis, explains that he went there
for the express purpose of ereating a
rumpus, thinking thus 'to bring the dis?
ease to the surface, and effect a euro.'
We are afraid the disease lies deeper
than Fred.'s remedy can reach. Full
equality before the is the privilege
of all, 'without distinction of race or
color,' but the Almighty has established
certain natural barriers between the
white man and the blaok, that no human
statutes or ordinances can ever over?
throw. Charles Sumner, with his oivil
rights bill, and Fred. Douglass, with his
social equality chimera, may not aee
this, but the future will demonstrate it
even to their satisfaction."
The Boston Post says "they are giving
and taking the lie in a lively manner iu
the South Carolina Legislature." If it
bo true that a fair exchange is no rob?
bery, this exchange of lies by the mem?
bers is about tho only thing that Legis?
lature has over done that wasn't a rob?
bery of somebody. - Courier-Journal.

"Well, we bave tho fruits of the oar

Arkansas, in consequence of tho non?
payment o! taxes due thereon,' to tako j
place on tho '?^cond Monday in Febrn
ary, 1872,' published in the Weekly Re?

the magnitude of the taxation imposed

year of his role may be derived from an |
examination of this advertisement, re?

nineteen cents per acre. Taking page
111 as an average of the whole 228 pages,

L ITT LB DELA WARS AT THE THROAT OF
MASSACHUSETTS.-In reply to some re?
marks of Mr. Hoar, o' Massachusetts
on the educational bill, Mr. Biggs, of
Delaware, opposed the bill. He turned
his attention to the speech made by Mr.
Hoar some weeks ago, in which some I
allusions were made to the discredit of '
Delaware, and said he would read the
criminal statistics of the saintly State of 1
Massachusetts. He would read the
crimen in their alphabetical order. They
used up all the letters of the alphabet,
except the last fonr. He found that in
four years-1866, 1867. 1868 and 1869
the number ol griminal prosecutions in
Massachusetts was 10,036. They had
increased from 1,945 in 1866 to 3,458 in
1869. And what were those crimes?
Arson, adultery, burglary, bigamy, con?
spiring to dofraud, drunkenness, defac?
ing tomb-stones, forgery, horso-atealing,
highway robbery, keeping hotel without
license, night-walking, obtaining money
under falso pretenses, perjury, polyga?
my, playing curds on Sunday, attending |
sock fights, refusing to pay railroad
taxes, selling liquor, selling obscene
prints, selling diseased meat, threaten?

talked about the illiteraoy of Delaware,

SODDEN DEATH OP A PROMINENT CITI?
ZEN.-Our citizens were painfully sur?
prised last Sunday afternoon, by the
intelligence of the sodden decease of
Dr. David J. Bothwell, senior partner
?if the firm of D. J. & J. T. Bothwell.
He was apparently in his usual health at
linner on that day, and soon after par?
taking of which ho laid down for his ac?
customed afternoon nap. Io a short |
;ime after he had laid down on the bed
xe complained of being unwell, and in a
few moments expired. His death was
mused, we believe, by paralysis. Dr.
Bothwell waa a native of Jefferson Conn-1

mtil bis removal to this city, in Dooly
bounty, which he at one time represent?
ed in the Legislature. He was about I
nxty years of age.

attempt to poison Mr. Van Noss. The
prosecution will, it is understood, push
this case with vigor, and not a few antici?
pate it may result in conviction. It
should be stated, however, that tho
counsel for Mrs. Wharton and their
families are confident that she is a deeply
wronged and innocent woman; ana I
hear that Mw. Steele proposes to give
her a reception at an early day, and to
strike off from ber visiting list nil who
fail to attend. This shows that the nn
fortunate woman is not without strong |
adherents, even in a community so hos?
tile to ber."
SUDDEN DEATH..- WO are pained to
ohroniole tho sadden death, on Sunday
morning last, at Davidson College, of
Mr. C. M. Douglass, one of tho editors
of the Davidson Monthly. He was ap?
parently, well on Sunday morning, and in
a short time he was a corpse. We un?
derstand that his sadden death was
caused from tho "rising of tho heart."
Mr. Douglass was a young man who bid
fair to make his mark in this world, bad
not death so suddenly transplanted him
from time into eternity. Mr. D. was
studying for tho ministry.

The Washington correspondent of the
Baltimore journal, writing February 1st,
Whilst he (Carpenter) waa talking,
that piece of hideous iniquity, yclept,
Hon. Beast Butler waddled (for a walk
it is not) into the Senate Chamber and
took a seat next to. the Senatorial "Buf?
foon" Nye, bnt, as is the case of those
who have a troubled conscience, he
would not Bit still, and again waddled or
waggled bis carcass to the other side of
the chamber, where he button-holed
the so-called "Adonis" of the Senate,
Conkling, of New York, and pulled
him down to a seat on one of the sofas,
where, for twenty minutes, he engaged
in a conversation. He then moved to a
seat next to Carpenter on bis left, and
but three desks from that of the Hon.
Garrett Davis, of Kentucky, who arose
after Carpenter had finished, and made
an elaborate reply, lt was a very funny
thing to see the way in which the Hon.
Beast jumped np from that scat, when
Mr. Davis commenced speaking, and
sneaked away from Davis' vicinity as he
remembered bis experienoe with that
gentleman's offended dignity about a
year since. His jump was sudden, and
caused a loud guffaw from "Jester" Nyo
and others, while tho audience iu thu
galleries laughed vory knowingly, and
the Hon. Beast looked like a sneak-thief
caught iu soma gentleman's passage?
way with a stolen coat over his arm
and he knew it-for he shortly left.
They hud a terrifying sensation in a
boarding house iu Davenport, Iowa, tho
other evening, tho result of the peuchaut
of the lady for a little fun. This lady
put on a ghostly mask, donned a coat
of her husband's, aud creeping softly to
tho door of another lady, pushed it ajar,
aud, with a groan, put her.head in the
opening. The occupant turned, and
looked, and gave a shriek, and fell to the
floor in spasms. The fun-maker saw
the result of her sport and swooned
away! Tho noise made by the victim
caused a rash of the other boarders to
the scene, who appreciated tho situation
at onoe. It was with great difficulty
that the frightened lady was restored to
consciousness, and after that she was in
a crazed state of mind for several hours.
Meantime the other lady was taken to
her room, where restoratives brought
her to hor senses. She inquired us to
the condition of her friend, und, when
some ono told her the fate, she fainted
again, remaining in an alarming condi?
tion BO long that her husband and all
about her were filled with the direst ap?
prehensions. Both ladies wero unable
to leave their room next day.
A MAD ELEPHANT.-A story comes
from India of a mad elephant which, for
many years, has beeu tho terror of a
tract in the "Central Provinces." About
twenty years sinae the animal escaped,
and killed in that period some eighty or
100 human beings. Some of tho car?
casses, it is suid, tho elophant devoured,
but this is questionable, as being oontra
ry to the habits of the creature. The
monster was more dreaded than any
"man-eating tigers," sinoe the houses of
the natives were no protection, the ele?
phant destroying houses to get at tho in?
mates. The savage beast was hunted
and killed in December last, by an Eng?
lish officer, at the head of a party of na?
tives. The Government reward, $100,
was divided among the natives.
IB NOT A CAHPET-BAQ STATE.-A reso?
lution in tho Illinois Legislature, ap?
proving and commending Sheridan's
military occupation of Chicago, which
was pressed by Federal office-holders as
a direct menace to Governor Palmer,
was postponed last Wednesday sine die.
Some of its chief opponents were Re?
publicans. When congratulated by his
friends on the result, Goveruor Palmer
remarked that ha desired tho administra?
tion to understand that Illinois is no
carpet-bag State; that Illinois has no
carpot-bag Governor; and that Illinois
has no carpet-bag Legislatura.
The Cincinnati Commercial persists in
