Opinion are abttiit equallydivided as to
whether the president will exercise the ve

influence to have it vetoed. Should his
course be decided on in the cabinet to mor

the morits of the bill, but upon the ground
that the slate department are already en
gaged in what promises to be a successful

.1. W. Simonton, general agent of the as
sociated press, made a statement to-day
before the senate committee, who are engag
ed in the consideration of senator Jones'
railroad telegraph bill, in which he sought
to show that the association was in no sense
a monopoly and that its property was in no
wise due to any favoritism shown it by the
Western Union Company, and that any in
terference by the government would not tend
to lessen telegraph rates, but on the contra
ry strengthen the association. The opinion
prevails that the bill will pass.

trying to prove his idenity it is said thai
ho produced a pocket lull of railroad puss

day's march thence back to headwaters and
making a wide detour to tho left, returned
to camp the sixth day. Two camps were
made without wood or water; thermoneter

Mrs. Catherine Blount, by the use of
drugs. He will be taken to Eagleville to
morrow. Jones worked for Mrs. Rlount's
husband, and when the woman told her
story he was threatened with mob violence
and hastened away, but was followed up
and arrested. There is intense excitement
over the affair.
DOINGS AT WASHINGTON.
Washington, February 13, 1S79.
The result of caucusing and private
agreements among Democratic senators
seems to be that no general legislation will
In; finally insisted on as ami ndiiieitt.s to the
appropriation bills except a repeal of the
test oath for U. S. jurors. This is an oath
which keeps oifof U. S. juries all men who
aided or svmnathized with the confederates'
in the civil war. The Democrats, it seems
to b't understood, will not insist upon a
transfer of the Indian Bureau, upon armv
reorganization, or upon a rep?;d of the law
authorizing the appohtni'iit of Federal
supervisors of elections, and the Republi
cans will consent to the test oath repeal.
This prevents an extra scsion. Of course
there will be much and spirited debate on
all the subjects mentioned above, but the
result is known ir. advance. Mr. Southard,
chaw man of house special committee on
laws relating to the election of president,
gave notice yesterday that be should not
press the committee's bill tit this session.
Tins makes it probable that we shall have
another presidential election under tho law
as it has long existed. Both houses realize
that there is chance for improve
ment, but neither will probably
take lintu action at this session.
The home has been occupied for several
days ol this week on the legislative, execu
tive and julicial appropriation bill, and
will dispo of it probably by Tuesday.
Following ,t will come from the committee
the sundry civil and deficiency bills, and,
to be passed in the last days of the session,
that most outrageous of swindles, the river
and harbor improvement bill. All these the
senate will pass, agreeing as stated above
to an amendment to one of them doing
away with lite test oath. General Butler,
of Massacln setts, yesterday gave the house
his views on "war claims." lie thinks no
payment should be uiade, except to keep
the contract between tho Federal govern
ment and its soldiers. Mr. Blackburn spoke
briefly on tl.e subject and said it was
wrong to impute to the South any respon
sibility for the presentation of these claims.
She hud made no claims. "Tho South,"
said Mr. Blackburn, "had staked her all on
her convictions and had lost. She had not
complained, and would never in the future
complain. She bore her losses, and simply
protested, that it was neither generous nor
kind nor manly nor merciful to drag
her into this question und to make her the
football of the passions of men who seemed
to have at heart tho serving of partisan
purnoses rather than the advancement of a
common good." Among the various docu
ments laid upon thy desks of members of
congress, not one perhaps has more re
ference to the coinmerco of the southwest
and south than the report of
the aamy engineers on the
jetties and tho review by Capt. Jus, B. Eads
of that report. Tho most important ques
tion really decided by the engineers, mid
one that is very complimentary to tho engi
neer who urged the jetty system of works
at tlio mouth of the Mississippi, is the ques
tion of tl!o formation of a bar in front of
the jetties. The commission is decidedly
of tlie opinion, to qtmto its own language
that "tho actual results, so fur as wo know
them, do not justify tho predictions of nc
celleratcd bar advance. On tint contrary
they show a disappearance of bur
inuterial from tho front of the j"ies."
Thin question then is Anally s.'ttlwl.
It exercised tho minds of. tho chief en
gineers of the country, wh,!ti the j '(ties
were first suggested by Capt. Ends und
there was u decided conflict of opinion
between tho builder of the Jetties, on tho
one hnnd, and nearly tho whole of the
army engineer corps on the other led by
their chief. In other respects the report is
favorable, but when it comes to giving tho
credit where it belongs the engineers give
no credit to Capt Ends but actually lay
claim to being tlie original proposers of
the plan to relieve the coinmerca of the
Misissisipp! by a deep and certain outlet to
the sea. It is a well known fact, however,
that as early as 1873 Capt. Eads proposed
the plan to a number of congressmen then
visiting tho mouth of the river and said it
was the only thoroughly feasible .plan.
This was at a time when tho Fort St.
Philip canal was talked of, and that winter
a formal proposition was made to congress
by Capt. Eads to deepen the southwest pass
by the jetty system betoro any memlier of
the engineer corps had ever expressed any
decided opinion in favor of the jetly plan
and when most all of them opposed it.
For Tue Cairo Bcu.etin :
"IN A MULTITUDE OF COUNSEL
THERE IS MUCH WISDOM."
Permit me to present the following for
your consideration :
Resolved, That congress is responsible for
the hard times undar which the country has
been, and is now laboring, and that it is its
first and imperative duty to pass such laws,
as will relieve the people of this country
from this most grievous burden.
Resolved, That the above resolution
is a humbug and unworthy of a people
claiming a resonable sharo of common
sense. Hard times is not the result of leg
islation; but the consequence of fast living,
running in debt, luanufactoring more than
supplies the demand; building railroads
and factories on credit when every article
of trade and manufacture and labor are at
war prices, and that the price ot everything
has been seeking, und now has found its
Resolved, That the best way to get rid of
hard times is to live within our income and
keep out of debt.
Rosolved, That railroads are a benefit
to the country because they greatly facilitate
the transportation of produce and mcvehan
die, reducing tlie price of the h.tter, and
enhancing the the value of lands in their
Kesoiveti, iii.it tlie value ot our
lands is not increased bedus;; of a railroad
in the neighborhood. Land will not pro
duce one grain more of corn or one
more potato because of a railroad, and
therefore should only be valued for the
purpose of taxation, according to wlsat it
Resolved, That the Legislature enact
such law or laws as to authorize and com
pel county, city und municipal authorities,
to furnish work for trumps at the current
wages of the community in which they are
found; as it is believed that within the
space ol three months alter the passage and
enforcementof such laws, not a tramp could
be found within flic limits of the state be
cause nothing strikes greater terror to the
soul of a tramp than work.
Resolved, That the Legislature has no
right to interfere by legislation or other
wise with the business of the fraternity of
tramps, either as an individual or corporate
body, as that would be interfering with his
liberty, and pray of what account is your
boasted liberty, if it prohibits us from
tramping over the country to beg, and if it
happens to be handy to take
little things without permission,
and when it is a well known fart that work
as regards the fraternity is entirely out of
question, and cannot be entertained under
Resolved, That the science which inves
tigates man, not man ot the present age.
for that belongs to one of the minor
branches of philosophy; but man's origin,
how and where he originated the science
that culminated in the Darwinian theoiy
tracing man's origin to its true source
the monkey is the grandest and the noblest
that ever emanated from the brain of man.
Resolved, That a science which has no
better or higher aim than to theorize on
the origin of man is useless, and unworthy
the intelligence of the nineteenth century.
Does it make a man any better by knowing
that his great great great great grand-daddy
was a monkey? Does it impress upon him
a higher sense of duty or make him more
charitable to his fellow man? Does it re
lieve him even of one of tho burdens of
life? It may be n comfort to the origin
ator of tho theory to think that his pro
genitor was a monkey, but tho comfort is
extremely doubtful as regards the rest of
Resolved, That the science which teaches
man how to grow the best and most pota
toes per acre, with tho least expense is of,
more value to any country than a thousand
sciences that theorize on tho orii:iu of man.
Ri solved, That any science which Inves
tigntes tie) condition of man of tho prrseut
age, and devises menus to bettor his condi
tion, ltoth morally and physicdly, is tho
grandest und noblct Nc.icnco within the
scope of human intelligence, foremost
among them an.' the s.donco of education
and tho science of ifovcrnment.
R -solved, That iiewnpanors don't Amount
to m'.ie.h, and that nit almnnnc that rolls ull
nlfont tho wcalli-T and what kind of pills
NEW SEMES-NO. 206
and bitters to take, is better than any
newspaper, and a great . deal cheaper, it
don't cost anything; and
Resolved, That schools, like newspapers,
are over-rated and cost too much money ;
that school superintendents and teachers
are paid entirely too much; that their
wages ought not to be ai.y more than ten
dollars a month and board; farm hands can
be hired for that, (not tho best of course)
but then the work of the superintendent
and teachcist is not near so hard aa farm
Resolved, That it is the imperative duty
of the people of this country to promote
the education, both moral aud intellectual
of all classes, and as this can best be
achieved by schools and tho press, it there
fore becomes us as a sensible people to
encourage the latter by a liberal natronarro
and prompt pay, and the former by obtain
ing competent superintendents and teach
ers, and granting reasonable time and pay
for visitation of wchools nil 1 the ' hold
ing of teachers institutes besides that of
