OFFICIAL PAPER OF ALEXANDER COUNTY.
M.U. Harroll, Ktlitor.
It was through a sympathy begotten of
V's, probably, that Van Valzuh. of Vigo,
voted for Voorhecs for the position of
United States Senator.
Leading Southern men ure putting tlit-m-selves
on record as against the payment of
one dollar of the so-called rebel war claims.
The Democrats of the North are quite a
unit on that subject already.
Col. R. 0. Ixoeusoll is about to pub
lish a new book, entitled "The Religion of
Sword and Flame." His infidel works are
meeting with such a demand as to encour
age him to writo o.hcis.
All the congressional investigations yet
held have had no perceptible effect in in
fluencing public opinion. The facts are
drawn out in such an attenuated form are
given to the people in such homeopathic
doses are spread out over such long inter
vals of time that the few who pay any at
tention to them at all, become disgusted,
and finally dismiss the matter from their
Sexatoii Lohan will reach Washington
to-day.. It has been arranged to give him
a grand reception ; and it has been vaguely
hinted that the Senator has had a hand in
tho matter himself. But all such insinua
tions are very base. Logan is not that kind
of a man. Honors must come to him un
sought. It is perhaps true, that, after lie
saw that the great body of the people of
this State wanted him in the Senate, he did
some work for that people. He brought
scores of claquers to his side nnd organized
his forces with great skill; but he was
leading the fight of the people. Letters
that he didn't know anything about, were
written to Logan's Chicago horn-blower,
declaring that the people were wild in their
desire for Logan's election. This being
the temper of the people, he would have
been recreant in the face of a great
duty, hud he permitted Oglesby to
run away with t!:e Senatorial prize. Hut
he was not that kind of a man. Login as
Logan, he considered as entirely out of the
fight; but us Logan, as the people
he left no stone untunud
to feiure tin; cleetion of the per
sonified people to the United State Senate.
He succeded; and now, if Logan, as Logan,
has had a hand in making arrangements for
the reception of Logan as the people, there is
" no impropriety in it, whatever. It may be
that the reception is due, wholly to Mr, Lo
gan's eTorts. If this be so, he has imposed
nn additional weight of obligations on the
people. This, and this only,
It was au easy matter for the wives of
.Senators and Cabinet officers, who form the
"ton" of Washington society, to "break
the social ice, ami h t the negro wife of
Senator Hrues pop up." The truth is that
Mrs. Senator Jirure is a beautitul woman,
with a hliin that gives no indications of the
presence of drop of Africun blood
in hr veins. She is educated, is a woman
of ''queenly grace." and one of the finest
conversational'iots in Washington. Hie is,
in short, a brilliant woman, and in point
of personal beauty and intellectual acquire
ment is the p(-..r of any woman in the
capitol city. Hen.-c, h. js ow received
mi "cquanenns" everywhere. How would
' it be, however, woie her skin of th glisten
' ing black, and if, instead of straight silken
h-iir, her head were eov.ered with the un
mistakable wooli Hi iw would it be, if, in
- -ttead of the shapely No. 2 foot, and the
nicely turned ankle, her elevated skirts dis-
1'iwl a X. 10, "bug-siiuishing foot," with
n '-mill-post ankle" in the middle of it?
Would the "Mis. Senator,'' under Htich cir
cumstances, be hrr card of admission to
Washington society? Would she, were she
as learned as Humboldt, be welcomed to
tho homes and tables of Mrs. Secretary
Evarts or of Mis. Senator Cameron f Not
much, we opine! It wtuild then be "that
presumptuous negro woman;" "Senator
Unices wench ;" and not a single member
of Washington society would be at home
t. her culls, or Hermit her to enter their
........ j . t
elegant homes through tho front door.
The most remarkable and exciting game
of billiards ever played, was that which
came off in New York ou Saturday last, be
tween Slosson and Schneffer. It was
French carom irame of (100 points. At tho
fifth inning the score stood : Slosson 559,
ScliaelliT No man in the vast crowd of
lookers-on deemed it possible that Scliaelfer
could so use his three remaining innings as
to make even a respectable average for a
champion game ; and this feeling resolved
itself into a certainty, when, at the end of
his fifth inning, he had scored only 3!)
points. Slosson, who, on his fifth inning
had made the unparalelled rim of 404
-..itiit-i Ir- llis. fit -fill tllM CIVtll innitlrY
and as he had only forty-one points to make
it was generally believed that he would run
out ; but his score was increased only a
few points. Schaeffer, with tho odds of
more than 500 points against him, showed
great nervousness at the commencement of
the (ith inning ; but soon warmed to his
work, and "lroze" when he had made a score
of 203 points, giving him a total of 302.
Slosson, with forty points to make, "came
to the scratch" confidently. Schaeffer had
left the balls in good condition for him;
but by a singularly ujilucky shot lie closed
his inning nt 12 points, which gave him a
total of 571. Schaeffer got the balls in
good shape, and, as he "nursed them"about
the table with great skill, lopc-s were in
spired in the breasts of his friends that he
might, after all, snatch victory from the
jawsof defeat. lie had passed once around
the table and his score exceeded 200. The
balls were in good shape, and were
handled with such skill'that the lookers-on
were kept in a perfect" paroxysm of enthu
siasm which knew no bounds, when, at a
score of 2!tS, the scorer called "game for
SehaellVr!" It is claimed that Schaeffer
could have nursed his balls indefinitely, or
beaten Slossun's score of 404 had the neces
sities of the game required it. Upon the
announcement of t lie game tor .'scliael
fer, who is a mere boy. the crowd
became wild. Such shouts and
yells were never before heard in
New York City. Schaeffer w as gathered upon
the shoulders of the surging crowd, and
passed to the table, where he was com
pelled to stand, until each one of the spec
tators had congratulated him upon his won
derful achievement. A wilder' or more
tumultuous scene- was never witnessed in
the great metropolis. Schaeffer became the
lion ot the city, and the observed of all ob
servers. And now, as a "puncher of balls
with little sticks" he stands the confessed
champion of the United States. Schaefl'er's
average was 85 5-7 points. Slosson's aver
age was bl 4-7 points.
The whisky-ring thieves, and the multi
tude of ex-carpet-baggers w ho could again
pn-y upon the public treasury and the sub
stance of the people, if (Jrant should reach
the presidency, are arranging for a "grand
reception" of "the greatest of military
chieftains," when he shall return to the
land of his birth. In pursuance of this
idea a "loyal legion'Wis being formed
among the ex-soldiers of both the Union
and Confederate armies. The muster-rolls
once returned, the legion will be formed
into companies, regiments, brigades and di
visions, after the manner of the army. This
scheme is given additional interest by the
pretence on the part of tho schemers that
the organization is to serve as the basis of a
grand t national inalilia. Of course the
whole thing is a political trap to catch
Democratic gudgeons in the (Jrant net.
In its length and breadth it is to be no
more or less than an instrument in the
hands of designing men to "whoop up" the
Or.int movement, and to correspondingly
advance their own rascally individual aims.
And haven't we had enough of this "llail-to-the-Chiel"1
business, without going any
further? Admit that (Irant is, what le- is
not, the greatest of living military chief
tainsho achieved his glory by encom
passing the defeat ot a portion o( the Amer
ican people, with whom it should be our
aim to live, hereafter, on terms of comity
and general good will. Admit, what is
not true, that he did what, no other man
could have done; have not the American
people already shown u sullU-ient appre
ciation of his achievements? (I renter honors
were conferred upon him by Congress than
were conferred upon Washington. He Us
been twieeelectedtothe presidency. He has
been received with music urn! biinnei-s and
great hurrahs for a period of thirteen year;
and still there are those who would ciiiitiuu;
the clamor--not because (irant is a states-
man or a pure man, but because, alter tho
loss ot more n .en than ever fought against
him, "he conq n-lled Lee to surrender his
sword nt Appo nattox." After tho lapse of
thirteen years it does seem to us that it is
about time thajt we some to our senses, nml
look for cur Chief Magistrate, not among
the soldiers who have planned the slaughter
of tho most men, but among the men who
have the most honesty and the most brains.
WAS 1 1 1 NGTON LETTER.
Special Corrt-cpondi'iiee Dally Bulletin.
Washington, I). ('., February 10, IS?!).
The house has disposed of till the appro
priation bills but three the sundry civil,
the one known as the "deficiency" bill, nnd
the legislative, executive and judicial. Over
these, however, it is thought there will be
iionsiderable discussion and delay, even be
fore they go to the Senate to receive the
inevitable additions of that body. On Sat
urday tho house passed the army appro
priation, bill, embracing the proposition to
reorganize the army, but one thing that to
transfer tho Indian Uureau to the War
Department. It hail also1 attached an
amendment permitting railroads., which
have telegraph lines for the transaction of
their own business, to open them for public
Senator Ilutler, of South Carolina, who
lately introduced an amendment to the
Texas Pacific R. R. bill, is himself friendly
to the original bill, and presented the
amendment "by request." It is an extremely
gratifying fact that this Texas Pacific road,
which offers to tho South probably its last
chance to secure government aid for a Pa
cific connection, is gaining friends every
where in that section.
The investigation of the Tribune cipher
is over. All thoso Democrats who were
supposed to have sent cipher dispatches
from South Carolina, and Florida have
been examined, and Mr. Tilden, against
whom no charges, but a thousand insinua
tions, had been published, has made a
statement and submitted to a cross-examination,
Mr. Tildeu's statement was specially
clear and emphatic as to his own innocence
of any connection with any attempt to pur
chase electoral votes in any Slate, and it was
in all respects confirmed by what the
other witnesses said.
Among the few bills finally passed at this
session 1 am very glad to nolo tnat which
went through the senate on Friday, which
allows women to appear as attorneys W
fore the U. S. supreme court. The first ap
plication for such permisMou was made by
Mrs. lielva Loekwood, of this city, several
years since. The passage of the bill through
the house and senate has been duo in
great measure to her unremitting exertions.
There is no doubt that Mr. Hayes will ap
prove the bill.
The comissioner of pensions now esti
mates that pj 1,000,000 will bo required to
pay the amounts due on existing pension
cirtificates, under the late arrears of pen
sion act, and he also believes there will lie
required au increased appropriation each
year hereafter. From present, oppeaianees
though congress will doubtless make an ap
priation before adjournment, it is not likely
any of this :J4,000,000 will bo distributed
for many months.
Apparently Mr. Hayes has even less con
fidence in the Democratic senate of the 4(ith
congress than in the Republican of the 4.)th
Ho is having furnished him a list of all the
important officers whose tenns.will expire
soon, with a view, no doubt, of filling their
places before the 4th of March.
