The Legislative delegation elected in this
county last Tuesday is composed of men who
will work as a unit for the good of Leaven
worth, whether it be in electing a senator or
passing a bill. While we regret the defeat
of some good men, we have abundant reason
to rejoice that of, those elected not a single

Prince Bismarck has been re-appointed
President of the Prussian ministry in place
of General Von Boon. It is understood that
his restoration to the post carries with it the
effective control of the whole cabinet, which
he demanded previous to his resignation

the great German Chancellor. He now has
almost unlimited sway in the Stat affairs of
Prussia, and will be likely to press his con

The Philadelphia IVcss, in referring to

to submit their job to the Legislature

The Republican Executive Committee o
the Ninth Congressional district ol Virginia
has issued a stirring address to the voters of
-aid district. Regarding the public free
schools ot the State the address says:
" The 'ree schools are now in the hands
of the enemies of popular education, men
who have oiienly and privately expressed
themselves as determined to lend all their
efforts to render the provision of the consti
tution which requires them, nugatory. The
Conservative parly collects the school tax,
Gils the offices by appointments from Rich
mond, draws the salaries, and affords school
facilities! but five months of the year, in but
a limited number of schools. The Republi
can party pledges itself to leave the selection
nf Kcnool officers to the people of the school
districts, who of right should choose the
men intrusted with their school funds, ana
promises to open a school on every three
miles square, and more if necessary."

The Hoouc tunnel has long been con

now begin i to find it also something of an
'elephant. There is a prospect of the big
hole becoming, in time, quite a managerie.
The question of what to do with it, is now
agitating the people of the Slate, and enters
quite largely into the Legislative canvass.
The following plans have already been pro
posed : "First, to consolidate the connecting
lines, leasing the tunnel to the new corpor
ation; second, to consolidate thoe corpora
tions with the State's interest under mixed
management, as in the case of the Albany
road; and third, to purchase the connecting
lines and make a State line."
This is a great work and nobody denies its
importance, but a hole in the ground, as an
element in local politics, is somewhat pecu

ance, then for thrie hundred and sixty-five

He has altogether the best thing of any man
in the United States. If he were a woman,
now, he would be wiped out of all shape by
the late licks put in by malice and jealousy.
Being a man, his popularity is greatly in
creased thereby, and his return last Sunday
to Plymouth Church, was an ovation. Fri

The Chicago Tribune of last Tuesday con

spondent, which hinted at certain possibili
ties of the canvass, hitnerto unmentioned,
and closed up with a rough estimate of the
farmers' movement in Kansas, which was
undoubtedly made up in the imagination of
the correspondent, as no elections have been
held in the State since the first Grange wa
organiz.-d. The Kansas City Times recently
commissioned a correspondent to "do up"
the Senatorial trouble in the State in elab

questions puzzling the Kansas mind. So

the strife, and incidents worn
threadbare with repetition have been
"dished out" as news. To show the depth
of confusion into which the Tin- -r
pondent has fallen, it is only n ..!v-ry to
say that he speaks of Jennison as an "Inde

one of the districts of Leavenworth county,
with good prospects of success." He then
goes on to say that "the statement of this
fad is perhaps sufficient for.your readers to
at once understand the condition of political

THE LAST WIGGLE OF 111E TAIL.
The election of Judge Litta, in the Third
ward, over the combination of influences
brought to bear against him, was at once a
victory for the Republican party, and a re
buke to the Smith and Caldwell ring. This
pernicious influence, which has wound its
slimy coils around everything in Leaven
worth for years past, had already been con
demned and shaken off by the people of
Leavenworth, but as the tail of the decapitat
ed serpent continues to show signs of life till
sunset, as last luesday's ecort to revive
this influence as an element in our politics
was the last wiggle of the tail; but the sun
went down when the polls closed.

Houston, with Deacon Larimer and Deacon
Brace, Deacon Eddy, Deacon Ide and Dea

honest and pious Legate; but we must say to
heir credit that they took time from their
t arduous and eminently deacon-like duties of
treating and entreating voters in the saloons
and gutters of the Third ward, to give an

Young Men's Christian Association. This

their treating, and the people hare adminis

citizensof the Third ward are disgusted with
this proceeding, and it is barely possible that

When Titus was besieging Jerusalem, the

From the Now Orleans Herald
Last evening, while the chief engineer of
a lung tester was expatiating upon the bene
fits to be derived from the free use of his
instrument, a cadaverous individual stepped
out of the crowd and remarked to him:
" Mister, do you think it would help me
any to blow into that can?"
" Yes, sir; certainly, it would expand
your chest, give elasticity to your lungs, and
lengthen your life. Why, you'd soon be
able to blow 600 pounds and win the S5

Then taking the mouth-piece in his hand,
he made ready. He opened his mouth un
til the hole in his face looked like a dry
dock for ocean steamers, and began to take
in wind. The inflation was like that of the
Graphic balloon, but not so disastrous That
fellow's chest began to grow and distend un
til he resembled a pouter pigeon more than
a man, at which point he put the mouth
piece to his lips and blew w ith such force
that his eyes came out and stood around on
his cheek bones to see what was the matter
but that can-top went up like a flash, and

the button on a country school house door,
until it stood still at 500 pounds I lbe

paid over the $5 in stamps, with a mutter of

coolly, and turning to the spectators, said:

On S.ilnnlav last a trio of fashionable fair
ones started for Budley's Grove to gather
fragile ferns and autumn leaves ot varied
hues. After a lengthed ramble, and laden
with silvan spoils, they started homeward.
Being fatigued they gladly hailed a young
farmer who was coming to town with a load
of wheat, and asked him for a ride. The
gentle rustic, although pitying tiis team,
granted the request, and the four hun
dred weight of lemale freight piled in on
top of the wheat sacks. Then their love of
fun cot the better of their gratitude and they
commenced a merciless attack of badinage
on the good-natured young man from the
country. Wasn't his name John Pumpkin?
Wasn't he married ? Didn't bis wife have
red hair ? How long was he married, and
were there twins in the family ? and, finally,
wasn't he afraid to ride with so many ladies?
John wasn't afraid, rather liked it, in
fact, and when one of the ladies rolled
off her wheat sack grabbed her by the
font and saved ecr from falling overboard.
By tiiis time the edge of town was reached
and they wanted to be let clown, not wishing
to be seen in such a vehicle; but John liked
their company so well that he refused, and,
shipping up his horse', made a grand en
tree with bis three uvwilling fashionables,
much to the amuement of the dwellers along
the route. At length John halted before the
residence of a legal gentleman in the eastern
part of town, where the ladies heard, with
hliwhinp c-nnfusion. their John saluted with
a "Why, brother ! " And then they discov
ered that the "rustic" was a well-known
young gentleman of this city, who has been
playing farmer for some time, and whose
handsome person and city gloss was hidden
under his rough garb and brorzt-d com
plexion. The ladies were too much con
foundtd to attempt an apology, but will

A T'nnrlnns Old lMty Klx-n in Her
Coffiu lo Enforce Order" About Her
From th Howling fliccn (Ky.) Democrat, Sth.
The idea tii.it mankind do not carry their
gruJges beyond the grave seems to have re
ceived a severe shock by the recent occur
rence near Kuuiey, a neighboring village of
ours, locattd on Green River, at the junction
of Butler and McLean connties.
The story, as told by a credible resident of
the neighborhood, is to the effect ttiat some
years ago an old gentleman died in that
neighborhood and willed eertauof his prop
erty to his relatives. He gave his wife a life
interest in his real estate, which was to go
ifier her death to his nephew, who was also
to have the rest of his personal property not
especially devised to others. Unexpectedly
to his wife this amounted to more than was
evidently intended ; for he chose to
claim and get possession of even
that property which she had considered and
treated as her own. The avarice ol the
nephew so irritated her that she declared he
should never enjoy the property after her
death, and that she should live so long that
his expectations and hopes should be long
unrealised. Her tenacity of her own way
was t uch that many declared they believed
she would either live for ever or haunt the
nephew after her death. For years there were
bickerings and bitterness between the aunt
and nephew, and no opportunity was lost
by either to annoy the other, and when the
nephew was an old man the aunt died, ap
parently of natural decay ; went out like an
exhausted taper. Just before she died she
gave directions to her attendants about the
manner in which her remains should be pre
pared lor the grave, and among other things
he strictly enjoined on them to put no
iwers about her corpse, to use no shroud,
but clothe her corpse in a black dress and
have no useless paraphernalia or pomp in
connection with her funeral. Her or
ders were strictly observed, except
that alter she was placed in her coffin a
young lady, who had not heard of her antip
athy to fljwers, placed a small bunch on her
breast. She had hardly laid the floral testi
monial of her respect out of her hand when
the corpse begin to move, and in a few sec
onds the old woman sat up in her coffin and
threw the fljwers at the young lady, who,
frightened half out of her senses, ran scream
ing from the room, while all those who be
held the spectacle were shocked beyond
measure, but the old lad, being apparently
satisfied when the offensive ornaments were
got rid of, quietly lay down again and was
buried in due time. As soon as the funeral
was over, the nephew entered and took pos
session of his inheritance, moving his family
into the old boiife, which was a much better
building than the cne he had occupied. He
was congratulating himself on his good for
tune while setting things to rights, but on
the first night of his arrival he found that
the old lady intended to keep her threat of
haunting him . He was not made of the
metal that fear ghosts, and be allowed no
trifle to disturb him ; but abont midnight he
wakened bv the pcresmincof his children.
'ho had been awakened by the well known
step of his aunt, as if walking about tne(
room, and one oi mem oeciareu ubibk mw
the ghost of her aunt, and heard her foot
steps clatterinz up the stairs. The father,
although anxious to comfort his children,
had to acknowledge he too had heard the
rtep., but scouted the idea of a gbost, and
went to bed. The next night the step was
heard by all, and a strange, whitish light
floated through the house.and was recognissd
by tome of the members of the family as
having the form of a woman, clad not in
white, as ghosts are generally teen, but in
the black dress in which the relentless aunt
bad been buried.
The same bjood curdlingsights and sounds
were endured for several nights, when the
heir w is entirely unable to longer endure
the annoyance, and moved out of the house,
which has ever since remained untenanted.

From the ETnailU Journal.
A great many people wondered how it
was that young Upham took Miss Wursbam
to the opera hou-e the other night, after two
years exclusive devotion to Miss Dedham.
R inior went even to far as to name the time
when Upbsm was to have been married to
the latter young lady. It is a very sad affair,
and is all the result of Henry Bigbam't
folly, or mischief, no one knows which.
Bigham, Upbam, Oldham; Topham and a
ctuple of others were going along together
one night, talking and laughing, until they
came to old Dedham's corner, where they
all were to part. The house stands flush on
the street, and they sat down on the steps
"for a moment," Bigham said, before part
ing. After they sat a few minutes, Bigbam
suddenly stood up. clutched the bell pull at
the door and, pulling it violently, ran. The
rest of the young men were to astonished
that tbey ran too, and got rut of sight as
soon as possible. When Upham rose up to
run he felt himself pulled from behind,
and then he felt something give way,
but be didn't stop to find out
what was the matter until he was at some
distance, and when he did look, he found
that the left skirt of his second-best frock
coat was gone. He couldn't think whit to
make of it all. He thought Bigham must
haye suddenly gone mad, but he was quite
sure the skirt had gone somewhere. He
was elad to get away on any terms so as not
to be recognized as associating with any one
who woulJ be cuiltv of such rowdyism. He
went home, and did not see Bigham next
dav. At night be went to see his girl, and
the charming creature met him at the door
with a parcel in her band. "I here," said
she. "that is the torn skirt vou left last night.

boot to helD vou."
Upham left without more parley, but he
threatened to kill Bigham for tying hii coat

bell, and the fact that Bigham had Miss

Two Stories r Ike Tlaae, with a Mural
From the Boston G'obe.l
A hard working mechanic, with a flock of
little ones dependent on him, has experi
enced of late a " poor man's luck." Out of
work for months, sickness, doctor's bills, and
a new baby, needs every day, and no means
to supply the needs. 1'rouU, but young and
hopelul, he sought for work everywhere,
anxious to do anything for his family. After
several weeks' search he succeeded in ob
taining employment, and went home, over
joyed, to tell of his prosperity. Oue week
passed, and pay time came. With his fellow
workmen, he went forward to receive the
wages which should carry so much comfort
into his modest home. He was met with cold
looks and colder words; his wages were
"trusteed," and he, according to their inva
riable rule.discbarged from the service. The
poor man staggered under the blow; he
grew disheartened and doubtful. How could
he, an humble laborer, tell these, his em
ployers, the whole story of sickness, suffer
ing, and trial? They were rich, and he
poor; they prosperous, and he condemned.
So he went out from among his fellows, his
pride too deeply wounded to stay where he
was known, and his courage killed out
right for want of a helping hand. The
wife watched and waited, but he did not
come. To day, he wanders among stran
gers, while the little ones lack, if they do
not actually suffer hunger; misery is the
fioor wife's portion, and disgrace the inherit
ance of the children. And all this suffering
is the work of one .nan, who could not wait,
or even forgive the paltry debt due for fuel,
amounting to less than five dollars. The
merchant is in his comfortable home, sur
rounded by his own children, takes no heed
of the sorrows he has wrought. "He owed
me, and 1 got the money," says this modern
Shylock; aud the little babes weeping
for their mother, who is earning their

kept muttering to him'elf

Some of the soldiers from Fort Sill met the

though their custom it to kill the one that
draws the shortest straw on the spat. He

and somewhat peculiar. A sign waa stuck

ffTwo small sacks, about of the size of salt
bags, auch as used to sell for 25 cents when I
waa in the grocery business and the tariff was
down, stood on the marble counter of the
Treasury. Ouarding these little sacks were
several stalwart policemen looking Gog and
Magog at you, as if they were Yeomen
Warders of the British regalia. There was
a kind of foolish look about the clerks inside
of the long glass bar, and they were recipro
cated by the crowd of idlers in front. The
very recipients nf the money looked ridicu
lous receiving it, and the paying teller was
fluttered. This was the resumption of specie

The room in which this performance wat
going on is the great show-room of the Treas

variegated colors, and adorned with screen
and furniture of rosewood. Since Wm. ba
Cbandltr had his name cut in the marble
walla under Huh McCulloch's, there has
been no such contemptible burlesque on the
Public Treasury of a great country. Rich
ardson himself felt the farce upon him, and
slipped away to his inner sanctum.
Last night the bar-rooms had signs stack
up to this effect: "Confidence Restorers. Try
a Handygafl. Five cents in specie given to
every caller at the bar, on the condition that
he keeps it moving."
It appeares by the evening report that
fifty persons in the United State had re
ceived $5 apiece. This is just 50-10,000,000
or 1-800,000 of the population. As Oen.
Grant expects a generous party to elect him
long enough to vindicate his policy, he will
require just 20,000 terms of four years each
to resume it. Probably by the end of tbat
period, if he begins now and is a good stu
dent, he will have some ideas on finances.

acquired a fortune of $650,000 in the course
of sixty years' faithful service. It is related
that, for twenty five years, he never

years of sleep in the Treasury might do

HOYT, SPRAOUE & CO.
The late Chief Justice died before the
troubled days had come upon his currency.
His trustee, Henry D. Cooke Las failed;
and both his son-in laws, Sprague & Hoyt,
appear to have joined the same list. Sprague
is probably the greatest manufacturer who
ever came to the Senate, and that is not say
ing much. He enunciated the cowardice of
half a million, and proved it when Brown &
Ives, his enemies, sought the other day to
press him down. Daniel J. Morrill, of the
Cambria Iron Works, Pennsylvania, tbe
greatest iron-roller and the narrowest-minded
man I ever saw, also presented hit miseries
of the tariff policy bu shutting up hit shops
before anybody else. There is sympathy for
Sprague, but none, that I have heard of, for
Merrill. Now.where is Keller? He never had
enough capital to fail on, neither in tbe head
or the pocket. Amongst them they stimu
lated this country beyond the bounds of pru
dence, and the land grant system prolonged a
market for their bigb priced iron, debauch

The Time has a letter from Chihuahua ,
dated Oct 10th, which, among other thing,
corroberaten the main points of the statement
telegraphed from here about three weeks ago
concerning the project to conquer the North
ern States of Mexico by forming into an
army the laborers on Tom Scott's Tex a
Pacific railroad, after they are discharged
on the completion of that work. The letter
further states that the belief in this project
has become a general and settled
feeling in Chichuahua. and that
the agents of Scott have been
traversing tbat State in every direction lor a
year past, collecting information and making
topographical reconnaitancta. It is charged
that the recent disturbances in Sonora can
be traced directly to American operations.
The knowledge of this scheme is said to have
been divulged by a Confederate officer, sent
to Chihuahua as agent of a New Orleans
league to organize a branch there, while on
a drunken spree.

Paris, Nov. 5. The National Aembly
met to-day at Versailles. President McMa
hon sent a message to the Assembly, which
was read shortly after the opening. The
message begins with congratulations on the
liberation of territory and the maintenance
of good order and continue as follows;
'jj-irope is assured that we are firmly re
solved to preserve peace, therefore without
tear she sees us resume posseasion of our ter
ritory. The Admisistration has always act
ed with a conservative spirit, which, ani
mates a great majority of the Assembly,
from which I never depart. Agitation of
the public mind, redoubled in intensity ait
theoeriod ofyonr re-assembling approach
ed, because it was requisite to discuss Ihs
Constitutional bills, which necessarily in
volve question of form of government, I
have neither to intervene in these di-ciis-sion
nor to forestall Jjaerr sovengn decision,
but merely to cnafM'tbe former within I
iral limits anrI5BOvWed that the latter
should be respected. Your power therefore is
intact nothing can impede its exercises. Per
haps, however, yon may think that in the
present situation with party feeling so strong
an establishment of any dt finite form of
government presents seriou lifneultiei, and
that it wotiM be more pruuenl to maintain
existing institutions, if so, permit me elect
ed to an honor which 1 did not seek to tell
you frankly my opinion: to thoroughly in
sure public peace. Government absolutely
lacks things essential to tne comiuion ol
affairs. It has neither sufficient vitality nor
authority. It aan do nothing durable if th
rights of government are daily questioned,
with its powers liable to be changed
at any moment. It can secure peace
to-day bat not safely to-morrow. Great
undertakings are impossible. If duly
languishes, we are unable to restore that con
fidence abroad which is necessary to tne res
toration ot tbe greatness of the nation. Tbe
Government lack authority, for it is usable
even to obtain obedience from its own agents
or to repress the excesses of the joiirovla,
which are corrupting tne public mind. Yon
rill meander these dangers and create such a
ttiuan. and durable execution which can en
ergerticaliy defend society."
