this, husbands were not very
highly valued in those days, be

As such an event would be a death

give that State over to the "rebels"
we suggest that the ".Republican
Union Executive Committee" shall
come to their aid with sufficient
stamps to lubricate the machine so
that it may run long enough to patch
up a JNigger Constitution. Bureau
officers, post-masters, assessors, col
lectors, and others who are continued
in position by the tenure of office bill
can afford to shell out their stamps
for the " holy cause." Be lively, gen

Tat Cost of Registering Negboks.
The cost of registration in Virginia
was 9239,000, and the cost of the mil
itary establishment in the State, for
the last ten months, was $5,000,000
six millions a year. At this rate the
registration has cost, in the ten South
em States, $2,390,000, and the mili
tary establishment for the past year.
$60,000,000! But theso are, really,
not half of: the real expenses. Is it
any wonder, under such circum
stances, that taxes are high, or that
there is a reaction in Radicalism
abroad in the land ? Such squander
ing of the public money for mere
partisan enas, is iniamuas. ii buuuiu

according to Mr Drowne, would not trust,
its income with an obese man. Thus it is
with nervous men we trust our money, they
are in fact the men for our money, and it
is from them we expect all that makes
money worth having. In short, it is the
