C. Bowen, the Bigamist,
and Radical Leader Pardoned.
doued.
President Grant lias at last
pardoned the noted bigamist,
0. C. Bowen, a late Radical
member of Congress, who was
recently tried and sentenced to
the penitentiary for three years
for taking auto himself two or
three wires. Ever since the
sentence was passed on the
bigamist the Radical free-lov
ers about Washington City,
including the last wife of the
Congressional bigamist, have
been urging Grant to pardon
him. Getting weary and tired
of them, Grant left Washing
ton and went to Long Branch
to attend the horse races
thinking, no doubt, that he
would get rid of them. But
they followed him up, and
compelled him to pardon the
disgraceful criminal.
A dispatch to the Cincinnati
Enquirer thus speaks of the
matter :
"After much vexatious delay
the-bigamist Bowen's pardon
has at last reached Washington,
and the niuch-married ex-Con
gressman walked out of jail this
forenoon a tree man again. He
was received with open arms
by Mrs. Pettigrew King Bow
en, who, although the jury de
clared her to be not his wife,
9ays she will nevertheless live
with him as his wife. The
President's pardon does not
effect that question nt all. The
pardon is dated July 1, and it
' !.,! Ill .....
is a mue remarkable tnat it
was not received here ere this.
The document contains a nnm
ber of misstatements of facts,
For instance, it states that cn
his last marriage Bowen acted
in good. faith, believing his for
a 1 1 i rwM
mer wne to ne ucaa. mere
was not a particle of evidence
ot this before the inry that
tiied the case. Bowen never
pretended that he thought his
first wife was dead, but all the
Evidence was directed to show
that he had obtained a divorce
in New York an efforrjthat
was utterly abortive, for it was
proven that the Court, records
of New l ork had been tam
pered with and mutilated. An
other reason assigned for the
pardon is that Bowen rendered
good service to the cause of
the Union during.the rebellion,
and that he has of late years
endeavored to lead a.n honest
and upright . life. His service
to the cause of the-Union was
probably rendered in killing a
Confederate officer when he
was in that service, and people
who have known him here for
the past three or four years are
not so confident that he has led
an upright life. However, h
is now out of jail, and is liable
to arrest at any moment for
mutilating the New York Court
records. Meantime he can pre
pare his case to contest the seat
of DeLarge, the colored Con
gressman from South Carolina."

History of the War in Europe.
The V National Publishing
Co. of Cincinnati, has just is
sued a very valuable history of
the "War between Germany and
France, from the pen of one of
our most popular writers, Mr.
James D. McCabe, Jr..
In a large volume of 800 oc
tavo pages, the author tells a
wonderful storyall the stran
ger because of its truth. . He
tells of battles which have sha
ken Europe to its centre, and
the consequences of which,
even we of the Western Worl
must feel ; of patriotism, her
oism, military -skill and states
manship, never surpassed in
history. The author writes
with the weight and force o
truth, and tho great merits o
his book are its reliability and
strict impartiality.
The Jjook is complete in ev
ery narticular. It describes
the causes of the war, arid the
events which preceded it; tho
opening campaign, and the
first reverses of the French
the eltect or tliesc reverses up
on the Irench people; the fran
tic effort to rescue the beaten
army, nnd the terrible disaster
of Sedan ; the capture of the
liinperor Napoleon, and an en
tire army ; the Revolution in
Paris ; the rise and formation
of the Republic ; the flight of
the Jimpress from Tans; the
siege and surrender of tra
bourg nnd the frontier fortress
es of France ; the tnumpha
advance of the German armies
to Paris; the efforts of Bazuinc
to escape from Metz, and the
final surrender of his army; the
investment and siege of Pans ;
the detailed history ot tin
great siege; its plans, sorties,
battles, successes and failures ;
the course of events in the be
leagured city, given in the form
of a full diary of the events of
the siege; the campaigns on
the Loire, and in other portions
of 1? ranee ; the peace negotia
tions, the surrender of Paris,
and the treaty ; the naval his
tory of the war ; the diplomat
ic history on both the German
and French, sides; the history
of the formation of the great
German Empire ; the proclaim
ing of King William Emperor,
and the realization of German
unity; the events of the civil
war and second siege of Paris,
its terrible scenes of bloodshed
and vandalism, with a minute
ness, graphicness and brilliancy,
which leaves nothing to be de
sired. No intelligent person
can afford to be uninformed as
to these events which have left
so deep an impression on the
world s historv, and few will
fail to read this splendid work;
or, having read it, to endorse
it as the Standard American
History of the War.
In this age of sensational lit
erature, we cannot too highly
commend this brilliant and
1 t . A' .
inougiHiui narrative to our
readers. The book is hand
somely bound, and 1 illustrated
with 150 maps, portraits, bat
tle scenes, and views of the
principal localities connected
with flie war. No expense
has been spared by the pub
lishers to make it worthy ot the
support of the public, and we
predict for it an immense sale,
especially as its low price
brings it within tho 1 reach of
all. It 'm published in both
English and German, sold by
subscription only, and the pub
lishers want agents m every
county.
The aggregate of the sala
ries of the Federal office hold

about $1,000,000 aunually !
This fact explains very clearly
the adoption of the fulsome in
dorsement of the corrupt Ad
ministration of their master in
Washington. The only won-i
der is that they did hot, by the
power of money and patronage,
carry Uirougn a resolution,
committing the' State to the

A Charming Book.
Foremost among those old
stories which have served to
excite the mirth of successive
generations of school children
stands the time-honored tale of
the Scotchman who was found
by a friend pouring over the
Kages of the dictionary, and on
eing asked how he liked it,
replied, "Oh, weel the stories
are braw, but they are unco
short,"
But the dictionary of to-day
is as unlike that of twenty
years ago as the butterfly is
unlike the worm. It has burst
from its former dull respectabil
ity into the glory of a picture
gallery. In learning, in extent,
in everything it has made a
vast advance; but with its
illustrations it enters a new
sphere of attractiveness.
A relative of mine, who
prides himself upon his fine
collection of books, drove up
to my door the other day. I
asked him to step into the
"library." His eyes oponed a
little, I fancied, with an amus
ed look, as if he wondered
whether I, with my meager
salary, was going to set up a
rivalry with him.
He entered the room, looked
faround with some apparent
surprise, and said, "Library"
"Certainly," said I, pointing to
"Webster," which stood proud
ly on a shelf, alone, for the
reason that I had nothing to
place b esidc it. "Many vol
umes in one.' "What have
you on botany?" said he.
'Webster," I replied, "with
illustrations of all the various
plants." "What have you
on . Mechanics?" "Webster,"
said I, and I turned to the en
graving of tho turbine wheel,
and of various other machines.
"Well," said he "you have, to
be sure, in Webster, a smat
tering of almost everything,
but I have you now. "Let's
see your authorities on mythol
ogy." I turned the pages of
Webster and showed him the
pictures of the noted characters
ot mythology, and sketches o
their lives. "I believe, after
all.'' said he laughing, "that
you have a library.
And really, my Webster is a
wonder to every one who ex
amines it for the first time. The
horse-fancier is pleased to find
a clear picture of his favorite
animal, marking out the pas
tern, withers and other parts
known only to horsemen. My
second boy, who reads South
Africa, adventures and goes to
hear Du Chaillu, is delighted
to have a representation of the
kleeeneboc and gorilla, and of
many animals peculiar to I)r
Livingston, If silhouettes are
in vogue, we are able to see an
example of them in the dic
tionary, with a good account
of the history of the word.
When we are readiiTg of the
crusades, we find pictures of
the knights as they appeared
in the holy wars. The narra
tive of the French Revolution
is helped out by a picture of
the guillotine, lhe amateur
fisherman recognizes in the
paces of Webster the familiar
countenances of the cod, hali
but and blue fish, as well as
of many less famous inhabit
ants ot the deep, llie terms
of architectures, which con
stantly occur in our reading,
are explained by pictures ot
the different parts, of building
in all the various styles, of
tho present and other periods.

Indeed the book gives us in
many instances- move than we
ask. When we look for filli-

treated to an eneravintr not on-
lv of the crook, but of the ti n
ditional shepherd also, with
several sheep and the usual vil
lage spire visible beyond a ffotf
ery mead.
Whenever, now, I see a
friend out shopping, I ask him
what he wants. If is a picture
book for Edward, I direct his
attention to Webster. If it is
an encyclopaedia for Uncle
James, I point him to Web
ster. If is is something to
please an invalid, I recommend
Webster. If it is Christmas
present for his wife, I urge him
to get Webster, Webster una
bridged and illustrated. It is
a never failing delight to every
one.

John Sherman will attempt,
during this campaign, to hide
himself behind the' one-legged
candidate for Governor.
He will beat the gong avid
sound the fuzzyguzzy about
the heroic achievements of
Noycs how he drove "rebels"

the people are getting tired of
Sherman ns a regular meal, and
if he can only keep in the back
ground and secure the election
of a Republican Legislature,
he has the vanity to think
that lie cart slip into the Senate
for six years more. But Sher

ceive no equivalent whatever.
Taking money orothr prop-
erty without the consent of thu
Owner,-and without returning
an equivalent,, is- the very es
sence of robbery.
