Since the abolition of the
franking privilege, the question
is raised as to what will be
done with the largo number of
Patent office reports, and other
dublic documents annually prin
ted. The number printed
might be very much reduced,
and millions yaved thereby.
There is a great deal of point
in what the Pittsburg Post says:
" If Greeley had been elected,
what a howl would have gone
forth in relation to the strin
gency of the money market,
since November, and the
depreciation of the public credit
Now the public debt is increas
ed and hard times everywhere

after Grant's election; but that
is all right."
Ben . Bctxer intimates that
Garfield is dead politically.
Old Ben is about right. Gar

Garfield.

history," according to loyal
phraseology.

The Constitutional Convention.
Til to-day's paper will bo found
the call of the DomoumUc Central
Committee of . this county, for a
County Convention to nominate a
candidate to represent Vinton coun
ty in tho Constitutional Convention.
Tho Democrats and Liberals of the
several townships will meet a their
usual places of holding elections on
Saturday, March 8th to appoint
delegates to attend the County Con
ventiontobu licUl at MoArthur, on
Monday, the 10th if Murk
Tlio Democrats ami Liberals will
see to it, that the best men iu the
several townships are appointed to
represent them in the County Con
vention.
We are informed that U. is
Claypoole, 0. T. Gunning, and L.
A; Atwood, are spokoa of as candi
dates for Delegate, subject to the
decision of tho CountyjKJonvention
Perhaps there are otlrers, but we
are not " posted on the subject."
Among the questions likely to be
of absorbing interest to the Consli
tutional Convention and to the pi-o
pie of tho State, are the questions
nf .TurliiMnl TJpt'nrm fir n rpviainn nf
. . T v , .
the present Judicial system, ,ini-
nonty representation, and of the
license system for the regulation of
the sale of intoxicating liquors.
Of these the most important is
the question of Judicial Iteforin.
Certainly a system in which there
will be greater simplicity, less de
lay, less expense to litigants 4tnd
the entire community, and a system
as rcliblo as our present system is,
is not an impossibility.
A knowledge of our present sys
tem, with all its objectionable parts
would seem to be an important
qualification in the person who rep
resents us.
Not only do we want such a man
for our candidate, but we want an
earnest, working man; a man who
will not only wcrk for his election
when nominated, but one who will
work earnestly for all needful
reforms when elected and in the
Convention.
There is talk of expelling
Congressmen Ames and Brooks
for corrupt practices, and excus
ing all others named in connec
tion with the scandal. How
can Ames be expelled if he did
not bribe anybody? and they all
swear most solemnly he did not.
The trouble appears to be that
an expulsion of the guilty ones
would reduce the . Republican
majority to a dangerous point
and leave the House without a
leader. Dawes, Garfield, Sclio
field and Kelley at present rep
resent the most important, com
mittees, and cannot very well
be spared. Brooks ought to be
killed, he is not necessary; and
besides that, is a Democrat who
did not forget his early training
with the other party he is a
late convert, but let him bo tak
en to the place of execution and
be hanged by the neck unt ill
he is dead, if that bo consider
ed necessary punish the guilty
and strike terror to the evil do
er; as for the others, swear
them to do so no more, give
them indefinite leave of
sence and let them go.

Increase of the National Blessing.
At the close of every month
for some time before and dur
ing the Presidential compaign
the monthly public debt state
ment showed a decrease of the
national obligations - Since the
election there being no longer
an excuse fqr deceiving the
people, the decrease of debt
rapidly fell off until last month
it ceased all together, and the
debt was increased nearly half
million. What can the people
think of a party that deliber
ately deceives them in order to
get their votes to be retained in
power..
Losing Strength.
The Republican party has
been loosing strength, coheren
cy and respect every day since
its decisive triumph; instead of
being made greater by its victo
ry, it has been made weakei:
and the public feeling that it
was a fortunate thing that
Horace Greeley was not elect
ed is already beginning to give
place to u public conviction
that it would have been a fortu
nate thing if tlio Republican
party could have been beaten

The Northfleet Disaster.
Icr.
London, Feb. 7. The details
of the terrible disaster to the
ship North fled are published
from which it appears that at
half past ten at night the .cap
tain and others were alarmed
by a cry from the officer of the
watch. A steamer ran into us,
The captain and pilot rushed
on deck, but before they got
there the steamer had run into
the vessel, striking amidships,
and cutting her below the water
mark. The carpenter reported
her half full of water. The
pumps were started promptly
and the crew worked hard at
them R)r some minutes, but
when it was found that the
water was rapidly gaining a
panic seemed to seize, both the
crew and passengers, and the
officers could not keep the latter
in check. A crowd of men and
women rushed up from their
berths.. Many only had half of
their clothing on. The passen
po-rs bad mostly-retired, but i
few Were undressing. The
noise of the collision likened by
one of them to a peal of thunder
and such was the violence of
the shock that that those stand
1112 were knocked down. It
appears that steamer rebound
cd and came the second time in
collission with the North-feet,
The water began to pour in,
and in a very short time the
Dasseimers' (luarters were
swamped. The women were
slower to rush on deck than the
men, and many were not in the
condition to till the water rose
threateningly around them
io one on the steamer was
heard to speak, although the
loud and eager shouts from the
North feet must have made her
crew aware of the terrible dan
ger that existed. Sh cquacked
for two or three minutes, and
then steaming rapidly away
was soon out of sight, lor
half an hour the scene on deck
on the North fleet wah appalling.
The women shrieked, the men
cursed and swore and fought
their way towards the boats,
whilst .the captain and lirst
mate roared out' commands to
the men to keep back and allow
the women to get to the side
of vessel, but apparently with
out success, ltockets were
fired and blue lights burned
A gun was loaded, ' but the
screw of the ramrod became de
tached from the handle, and
the piece could not be discliar-
ed signals of distress were
seen by several vessels, but ap
pear to have been regarded as
signals lor a pilot, lor no assist
ance was rendered. Mean
while, the scene on deck baffles
description. The captain find
ing the men determined to leave
tho vessel, nent below and arm
ed himself with a revolver, And
ascending the poop, declared
his determination to shoot, the
first man who fried to leave the
vossel before tho women were
safe. Tho first boat launched
was lowered by a number of
passengers by out ting the ropes.
there being no ladder at hand,
the only way of getting into it
was by leaping and falling some
twelve or thirteen feet. As
there was a terrible rush to
ward the bort, the scene was
one of distressing confusion,
and a man and a boy fell into
the. water and were drowned.
Tho officers did all they ooidd

into the boat to leave it, that
the women might be. saved,
but to' no purpose. Even fir-

supposed at first was unavailing.
About thirty persons having got
into the boat, it put off Not one
of the crew was in it. Another
life-boat was laudched' a man
got into it and was ordered to
leave. lie refused the captain
shot him in the calf, then cap
tain Knowles placed hiswif in
the boat, and said to the ! .at
swain, who had already g"1 in:
"Here's a charge for you, !'-at-swaiti,
take care of her uit ihe
rest, and God bless v hi."
Wringing his wife's hand, he
bade her goodbye, savin;;. "I
shall never see you again.1 It
is impossible to describe the
panic that raged all this lime.
Heartrending scenes were wit
nessed onall sides. One of the
passengers, seeing the capivin's
wife in the boat' threw his own
wife iii and threw his baby to
her and then entered the .boat
himself. A little girl was
thrown into the boat by her
father, who tried to save the
rest of his family, but the seeth
ing, maddened crowd pressing
toward theside of vessel prevent
ed, and with his wife and two
other children, he went down
with the ill-fated vessel. The
engineer made frantic efforts to
save his wife and children, but
was jammed between the. cook
house and gunwale, and receiv
ed dreadful injuries. Though
alter Wards rescued he is in a
precarious' state. Only two of
the seven boats aboard were
launched, "owing no doubt; to
the panic, and one was serious
ly injured as the tackle was cut
and the boat fell into the sea.
When the second boat had got
off, it seemed to become a ques
tion of moments.
The quarter deck was crowded
by men, women and children,
some crying, swearing, ana
praying. The captain and pi
lot were together, and' the lat
ter was heard saying, "If you
want to save yourselves, make
for the topmasts," to which ma
ny poor people ru5h3i. In a
quarter of an hour, a tug picked
mi the second boat with the
thirty occupants, and then
steamed away.
About t'n'ree-quarters of an
hour after being struck . the
Noaihfleet went down, head lirst,
with an awful suddenness, with
three hundred and twenty-sev
en souls on board. At that mo
ment the first boat was one

twenty or thirty from the ves
