That Indictment Against the County
Commissioners.?Tho beginning and end
of tho indictment instituted by Senator
Smith againBt our County Commission?
ers' for diverting the special tax of two
mills, levied in 1874, to the payment of
the indebtedness of the County, con?
tracted prior to that year, may be ex?
pressed in a nut-shell, thus: "Parluri
unt monies, nascilur rediculus mns," or in
plain English: The mountains labor and
a ridiculous mouse is born.' According
to his Honor's construction of Lbu law,
tho County Commissioners had not vio?
lated it, and the whole structure of tho
indictment fell suddenly to tho ground
without noiso. Wo have no fear that tho
present Board of County Commissioners
will violate tho law in any respect, or
fail to perform their official duties as
men of high tono and character?as
Christain gentlemen, who, knowing their
duty, will daro perform it Thoy in
their official capacity have no foes to
punish, no friends to make.
8omebody wrote to the editor of a |
country paper to ask how ho would
?'break an ox?" Tho editor answered as
follows: "If only one ox, a good way
would bo. to hoist him, by means of a I
long chain attached to his tail, to the top |
of a polo forty foet from tho ground.
Then hoist him, by a rope tied to his |
horns, to another polo. Then descend
on his baok n five-ton pile-driver, and, if
that don't break him, lot him start a
country newspaper and trust people for
subscription. One of the two ways will
do it, sure." t

The New York Herald says General |
Sherman has at last found a warm and
determined combatant. The letter ofl
Montgomery Blair to Mr. Browne, the
editor of - the HouViern Magazine, which

General Sherman, but an arruignment of
his military oareer. There is likely to bo [

SIMMONS' LIVER REGULATOR!;
For all Diseases of the Liver, Stomach und Spleen !
IT is evidently a Family Medicine, and by being kept ready for im?
mediate resort, will save many an hour of suffering, and many a
dollar in time and doctors' hills.
After forty years' trial, it is still receiving the most unqualified testi?
monials of its virtues from persons of the highest diameter and re?
sponsibility. Eminent physicians commend it as the most
for Constipation, Heaoache, Pain in the Shoulders. Dizziness, Sour
Stomach, bad taste in the Month, Bilious Attacks, Palpitation of the
Heart, Pain in the region of the Kidneys, Despondency, Gloois and
forebodings of evil; all of which are the offspring of a diseased Liver.
If you feel Dull, Drowsy, Debilitated, kavo frequent headache,
Month tastes badly, poor Appetite and Tongv.o Coated, you are suffer?
ing from Torpid Liver, or "Biliousness," and nothing will cure you so
speedily and permanently.
The Liver, the largest organ in the body, is generally the seat of the
disease, and if not Regulated in time, great suffering, wretchedness
und DEATH will ensue.
Armed with this ANTIDOTE, all climates and changes of water and
food may be faced without fear. As a remedv in MALARIOUS
