YEfiTKnDAV was Mt npart by the
Legislature, to consider a whipping
post bill, but judging from tho man
ncr it was treated when brought up
beforo the body last Friday, there is
not much show for its passage Tho
averago member is too much of n
demagoguo to vote for so important a
measure, even though ho bo thor
oughly convinced that it is almost
imperatively demanded. Ho is afraid
of offending that portion of his con
utiliionfa who wniilil in nil nrnlmliilitv
get- the benefit of the bill and he
therefore, to keep in with that class,
and tothoodwink those who favor the
bill, prates about a return to bar
barism and a retrogression instead of
an improvement in tho matter of pun
ishment.. Now we believe that there
have been many things handed down
from the barbaric ago that can not bo
improved on, and whipping for petit
larceny and other minor crimes is one
of them. The man, bo ho whito or
black, that is mean enough to steal,
carea nothing for the disgrace of going
to jail or spending a few days piddling
on a rock pile. Ho eels much better
board and lodgings than ho does at
home, if ho happens to havo one, nnd
the work is just as near to nothing as
ho could wish. Then what punish
ment is the work-houso or the jail to
such a class? It has not deterred
them from following their thieving
operations at all, and the State and
counties have been run to great ex
pense for nothing. But there is some
real punishment about the whipping
post, and it possesses the merits of
being sharp, decisive and inexpon
8ive. Tho thief who would smile at
a- eentenco to 30 days on tho rock
pile, would assume a different expres
sion of countenance if the sentence
wero changed to 30 heavy lashes on
the naked back. Thcro is rio crim
inal; be he never so low, that would
not .feel the disgrace of having his
'back bared and his flesh cut by a pub
lie flogging, not to say any thing
about the bodily pain it would give
him. The two together would act as
an almost sure preventive of crime,
and the expense of the prosecutions
would be greatly diminished. As a
measuro of prevention, of necessity
and of economy, tho whipping post
should be re established, and we hope
the Legislature will be manly enough
to enact a bill that we are confident a
' majority of tho people of tho State
are in favor of. Tho talk among
the' Republican members that such a
(bill is mainly advocated by men who
want another chance at whipping
their former slaves is the merest bosh.
The Jaw "would of course apply to ev
erybod who steals, and no honest
maapeed have any fears from it. We
arpleased to' know that both our
Senator and Representative are for
tho Whipping Post, aiid we hope they
will use their best endeavors to secure
Tiieke is a certain class of people,
like Guiteau, that have such an over
weaning desire for notoriety, that
they will do almost any thing to keep
themselves beforo the public. Min
nie Brooks, of Chicago, is a represen
tative of the class. A year ago she
created a sensation by turning her
beer garden into a religious meeting
house and taking tho lead in the re
vivals, but it was soon discovered that
she was a fraud, and she wusj allowed
again to return to obscurity. Hut
sho would not stay there, and comes
to tho front a second time by public
ly' marrying a full blooded negro.
Sho'll have to givo up seeking notori
ety now, however, for raising a rau-
lato a year, will about occupy all of
tho time at her disposal.
Tuc Mountain Echo wants Col.
Kobt. Boyd rccoguized by the admin
istration with a fat office, and devotes
' a column to his virtues und claims.
With a half partnership in 200 "star
routes" one would imagine that the
Col. has all the fatuess that the most
fastidious officeholder could wish.
But then the Col. bus not learned the
ways of Brady & Co.. and perhaps
does not recognize a good thing when
he has it.
A comtcarpKUENT writes us,
claiming the reward offered in our
luft, defying us to show that he ever
pretended to having "just dashed ofl1'
Ills communication but admitting
that many of them were "Jcuhed' in
different. He is entitled to the re
waril, both for his just appreciation
Off his articles, and his caudor in uc
-Tub Uativille Advocate has been
converted at last, and now favors the
whlpning-jost bjll. At for us, we
cau't see why oeiy man, who wants
to K'O a stop put to petty crimes, is
not an advocate of tho bill.
Last Friday boro ovidence that
hanging is not entirely played out in
this country, and that thero nro still
left numerous localiliei, whero a life is
demanded by tho law, for a life un
lawfully taken by another. It was a
regular hangmau's time, no less than
six persons having been sent through
by tho hempen lino on that day. St.
Louis had a doublo show, and as it
was free, thousands of peoplo elbowod
and crowded each other to get the
most of it. The leading characters
in tho tragedy wero Jos. M. Kalovsky,
whito, for killing his sweetheart, and
Charles Ellis, for removing another
negro, and they played their parts
very fairly. Ofcourso they wero in
nocent, all criminals are, according
to their story, and another just as
much matter of courso was that they
wero going straight homo to heaven.
They all go to heaven, in fact, it
would seem that tho surest way to got
to that blest abode, is to kill n man
and then get hung for it. At New
Orleans, two colored gentlemen for
murder nnd robbery, accomplished
the feat of dancing with nothing but
the air to stand on; at Marshall, Mo.,
John A. Phelps, white, on a like
charge was, to use tho expression of
a wicked Chicago hcadliner, "jerked
to Jesus;" at Elmira, N. Y., Jos.
Abbott, white, for tho murder of a
fellow prisoner, was worked ofl in a
most approved manner, and at Jersey
City, Martin Kankowxky had his
worthless neck broken for killing a
woman. There were several other en
gagements for the day, but soft heart
ed Governors interfered and postpon
ed the performances. Wo hope that
next Friday may be even moro prolific
in the production of gallows fruit. It
is tho only way to stop murder.
A Washington physicitn bin of
fered Scovillo SI. 000 fur the body of
Guiteau, whenever that worthy has
no further use for it. The offer is not
conditioned on the execution of the
prisoner, but is good whenever he
dies. It is likely that it will be ac
cepted, as both Scoville and the broth
er of the assassin, are willing to it,
not to mention Guiteau himself, and
if accepted, the money is to be appli
ed to the payment of sundry small
debts, that accumulated against the
prisoner, while he was dead-beating
his way through the world. This is a
good idea, for if the body, which has
been so useless all the time that life
was in it, can be turned into account
after breath has flown, it should bo
doLe. In fact, his numerous creditors
should hold a meeting, claim a lien
on tho carcass, and compel its sale for
their benefit. As part of a side show
it will be a fortune to the man who
gets it, and for this reason, they
might demand a little more than a
Blackburn's reply to Burbridge's
letter has been given to the public.
It is short and pointed, retracts noth
ing, and promises, whenever occasion
requires, to speak of Burbridge as his
infamous course deserves. In his re
ply, Burbridge seeks to excuse his
acts during the war, and publishes a
long list of those who believed that
he acted right in the premises. He
is particular not to oflend Blackburn
further, and the whole aim of his let
ters seems to bring himself promi
nently before the present Administa
tion, to aid him in his thirst for office.
Blackburn should never have dignified
him with a response to his first letter.
The Grand Jury of the United
States Court, in session at Alexan
dria, Va., is evidently of the opinion
that Mr. Carraicheal, who iu writing
to a friend on a postal card, charac
terized Mahone as "a d u dog," was
right in his conclusions. At any rate
they vindicated him by not returning
a "true bill" for violating the postal
laws as to writing insulting or indecent
words on cards sent through tho mails.
It may not bo out of place here to
state that thero are a great many peo
ple who cling to the belief that Ma
bono is "a d u dog," even if they
haven't put themsel ves to record on a

General Johnston has at last de
nied that be accused Jeff. Davis of
stealing $2,600,000. of specie left ou
hand at the close of the war. What
he did say was, that the President
ought to have accounted for the
money. And this remark was evi
dently made to injure Mr. Davis and
to get even with him for his criticism

pleasantness. Tho length of time it
took him to deny the charge, shows
that he wanted to have it believed.

National Banks will expire between now
and February, 1883. Of this number 383

be safely estimated that four-fiftha of the

aa the shooting occurred In the District of
Columbia, aud death In New Jersey, the
crime Is one or manslaughter, aa defined in
section 5,311, United State Statute at

''Every peraon who, within any of the
place or upon any water described in

but without ualace, strikes, stabs, wounds
or shoot at, or otherwise injurea another,
of which striking, stabbing, wounding,
shooting or other Injuries, such other lr

crime of manslaughter." A absence of
malice must be shown to remove GulleiuV
crime from Ihe murder clasa, It is not be.
