This morning the flklg of the "Fourth

of New Hampshire. It Is returned to
the State by Mrs. Persia F. Chase,
whose brother. Hie late Col. Edward
B. Cross, commanded the Fifth New
Hampshire Regiment, which at Ahtle
tnm captured this Hag and many men
of the Fourth. The latter regiment
iron one of the llrst ten to volunteer
and' later became the Fourteenth. The
Hag is the State Hag, of heavy dark
blue silk, with the coat of arms of the
State In oil in its center In an oval,
and the words "Fourth Regiment.
North Carolina Volunteers," uppectr
above and below. It Is the flag which
the State gave the regiment upon Its
being mustered into service. The flag
will be placed In the Stale Library,
which Is, <>f course, the place for It.
The Democratic State Committee was
in session until very late lust night
The meeting was one of the largest
over held. It did not decide anything
ns to fusion, but left all Unit matter
to the State convention May 2(ith. Tho
address of National Chairman Jones
was endorsed, but the committee does
not understand that Jones advises the
laying aside of the party's name. There
were some very direct speeches, but
the harmony was marked. The pre?
vailing opinion Is that special attention
must be paid to county organization
and county work, as the Importance of
having a legislative majority Is ob?
vious. The groat preponderance of
sentiment Is for a straight., earnest
and zealous fight nnd then if there Is
failure It will be honorable defeat.

(Special Cor. of The Virginian.)
Washington, Feb. 23, 198.
VI would appear that Norfolk Is doom?
ed to disappointment again, unless some
aotive steps are taken to prevent it. Af?
ter five years of waiting it was believed
that when the eite for a public building
had been purchased, the award for a de?
sign inade, the plans approved, this
drawings completed and phcitoghaphed,
the interior arrangements aproved by
the Secretary of the Interior and Treas?
ury and Postmaster General, the speci?
fications made and the bids for its erec?
tion a-bout to be invited, that the long
deferred hone of at last seeing ?. new
public building erected were about 'to
?be reaMzed. But no! At the last niU
nient the Treasury have found a tech?
nical flaw that may delay the erection
of nhe building ifor another year.
This is due to the olllcial statement
Secretary Gage has sent to Congress
on the subject, recommendLng itthat as
?the acit of Congress approved January
2d, 1831, providing for the erection of a
public building In the city of Norfolk,
Va., requires that "the building shall 1>?
unex'pesed to danger from fire by an
open space of at least forty feet on
either side, Including s'treets and alleys."
and that as the distance from the near?
est corner of .which to the corner of
the public building (as -the department
contemplates locating it) Is a'bnut thir?
ty-live feet, lie recommends, In order
that building operations may not 4>9 de?
layed, that such action 'be promptly ta?
ken by Congress ns will 'result In a re?
duction of the ttre limit on the southwest
corner of said building to thirty-live
This communication has been filed
with the House C:mm'ltt<e on Public
Buildings and Grounds. To accomplish
Secretary Gage's purpose, a bill will
have to 'be introduced Into ithe House,
referred to this same contmltt-.e, consid?
ered, favora'bly reported (D the House,
take Its plnce upon the calendar, itake
Its chance ibhat the committee will be
call od some time flvls session (only one
?uch call lias been made* this erotlre
session) or their unanimous consent ob?
tained, which is almost im'|.i:ssible, and
In event It is reached, .passed through
House. It will then go >to the Senate,
where 'A will have smoother sailing. All
tthls under favourable conditions will
take until near to tiho end of the ses?
sion, and may go lover until winter The
outlook Is anything but encouraging.
Congressman Young will do whan he
can to expedite the matter, and unless
that cha.lrma.n of the commit!tee does so.
Mr. Ytning will Introduce a bill to carry
out Secretary Gage's recommendation.
Mr. Bowden has returned here and
will remain for some time devoting him?
self to landing Burroughs in the Pours
mouth posttofneo. He can not under?
stand ithe cause.- in bhe delay, but Is cog?
nizant of the fact 'that Dr. Wise has
temporarily at least, put a cog in the
wheel, which has prevented it from re?
volving smoothly. Mr. Bowden is also
taking much interest In Secretary
Gage'.n bill to consolidate Newport News
and Norfijlk-Porls-mouth. especially as
he would bo 'legislated out of office by
the plan. Mr. Bowden feels confident
ithe scihomo will not go through, but if
it docs his friends assert that Mr
Bowden will be made collector i f th
consolidated ports at the salary fired?
V>.000 per year?which Is $2.000* greater
than the salary attached to the position
of collector at Norfolk.

' a general dis
cord. The body
)???? may apparently
be in the best of order in every way, s?ave
that there #a a slight disorder of the diges?
tion. The suflcrcr hardly uotices it, and
does not think it worth troubling about. It
is just one little string out of order, but it
soon puts every organ in the body into a
jangling discord. The blood no longer re?
ceives the proper supply of life-giving ele?
ments with which to btvild up new and
healthy tissue. Instead it receives lite poi?
sons thrown off by improperly digested food
and the ciTcte material with which the in?
testines are clogged. Diseases of the blood
and skin or wasting diseases like consump?
tion are the result.
The best of all known medicines is Dr.
Pieree's Golden Medical Discovery. It
keeps every life-string in perfect tune. I?
corrects all disorders of the digestion. It
invigorates the liver. It makes the appetite
hearty and keen and assimilation perfect.
It fills the blood with the vital-elements that
build new and healthy tissues, firm mus?
cle.0, and strong, vibrant nerve fibers. Acting
through the blood it tears down inert, half
dead tissues and causes them to be carried
off and excreted. It acts upon every organ
of the body driving out impurities and dis?
ease-germs. It is the great blood-maker
and ncsh-buildcr. It cures every kind of
humor from the common simple blotch or
eruption to scrofula. It cures eczema, salt
r he urn, and all skin affections. It cures <>S
prr cent, of all cases of consumption. Thou?
