It is siiiil that ImVmns never kiss each
other. The editor of the North American
ailcU that, having seen a few of the red
skins, lie feels no disposition to blame
The Marquis of Lome says that lie was
rcceivwl with much enthusiasm all along
his route of travel ; but nowhere, was the
enthusiasm more intense and demonstrative
than among the Niagary hack drivers.
Old Ludlow Dawson says that he is now
"nigh onto seventy-four years old," and that
the result of his inquiry and observation
during that long interval of time is, that a
thief will steal. He declares that he never
knew a thief who formed an exception to
this rule. We record the result of the old
geutleman's observation as s.)in.;thing re
markableat leat he tliiuks it is.
William U. Vandkbiiilt who recentiy,
with uplifted hand, swore that his personal
effects were not worth one dollar, invitud
the public, last Friday, to attend his art re
ception, and inspect the valuable additions
he made to hiscollcction of pictures during
his recent trip to Europe. The value of this
penniless man's pictures, alone, is put down
at $100,000. Why are such men not "shot
on the spot." It is such as he who are re
sponsible for the growth of Communism.
A Randolph county paper speaks of a
movement to obliterate Monroe county to
wipe it from the map, by annexing half the
territory to St, Clair and the other half t
Rardolph. Why such a movement has been
inaugurated vwj are not prepared to say. If
Monroe county is hopelessly in debt, the
debt would fall with the abandonment of
the county organization; but beyond her
subscription to tho C. & St. Louis Narrow
Guage the county debt is said to be trivial.
It may, however, be a Memphian dodge,
that our Monroe county neighbors have in
Mit. Fout, of Illinois, wants congress to
devise means whereby the pursuits of agri
culture can be rendered seductive to tho
idle millions of the Atlantic States; but
why this desiro should be coupled with the
request that congress give ten thousand
dollars to two or threo lazy loafers, to be
called a committee, for thinking about the
matter, is not explained. And we can tell
Mr. Fort that, if the hunger and threatened
starvation with which tho "idle millions"
are confronted, cannot drive them to agri
cultural pursuits, all tho attractions that
can be added by congress will umouut to
Tub work oi Capt Kads on tho Missis
sippi jetties Was suspended for some three
nioiirtia hy reusou tif tint yellow fever last
summer and fall. It is cause of congratu
lation, and an indication of permanence in
the improveniunts made, that an oflieial ex
amination just made of tho work, does not
show any filling up ot tho jetty channel
during this time. This is unexpected, us
-tho unfinished work was not supposed t bo
in a sale condition to leave. Capt. Kads
will ask congress for a further payment In
udvanco of the time fixed by law, and as
his work has been such a marvel of success
and most of it is done while only a small
part of the money has been puld, he will
probably get what he asks.
A wki.l known stockman says that wo
hnve, in Illinois, eight hundred thousand
cow. These cows, if placed head to tall,
In mingle file, would make fence of flesh,
V:ow high," entirely around the State of
Illinois. From the 800,000 cows 1)50,000,
000 gallons, or 3,0(15,100,000 pounds of
milk are obtained annually. To move this
milk would require tho constant use of five
steamboats, pitch steamer carrying one
thousand tons, and receiving and discharg
ing a cargo every day. If tlevoted to that
use, it would furnish a stream of milk,
umplo for the navigation of the Jim Fisk,
between Cairo and Paducah. And so
endeth the Illinois milk and cow story.
Tiik house of congress is making some
progress on the legislative appropriation
bill. The portious on wlyeli prolonged de
bate is expected are not yet reached. 'When
this bill is disposed of by the house tho
sundry civil bills will be taken up. In tho
latter will be found tho provision repeal
ing that portion of the revised statutes
which creates a "test oath" fur jurors in the
Vuited States courts. This tet oath, it is
unnecessary to say, relates entirely to
"loyalty" during the late civil war; and
is the means by which intelligent people
are kept from juries in the South and con
viction assured, if conviction is thought by
the Attorney General of the United States
to be desirable. After the sundry civil
bill will come the deficiency bill, and final
ly, the "river and harbor" bill. This will
cost, for the current fiscal year, six or seven
Ox Sati kd.vy last there was read in
Congress a letter from the Secretary of the
Treasury showing that he expects the re
ceipts of the Government for the next fiscal
year to be almut $2.")S.OOO,000, and the ex
penditures including $41,000,000 under the
late pension act, 28.O00,O0O. leaving a
deficiency of $27,000,000. The Secretary
does not recommend the imposition ot new
tax"s; but the issue of the necessary
amount of new 4 per ccn: bonds. There is
no need of a present appropriation of the
full amount required by the arrears of pen
sion law. The Commissioner of Pensions
cannot, without unjustifiable interference
with the regular business of his office, dis
pose of hall the claims under the act. An
appropriation of "$20,000,000 for the pur
posy will be ample, though if bonds are to
be issued it may be well to authorize the
issue of the whole amount at once.
There are men, (but the editor of The
Bn.i.ETix is not among the number; who
will agree with the editor of the Centralia
Democrat, who says that if the fifty or
sixty members of the present General As
sembly, who are galloping about over the
state under the pretense of visiting the
state institutions, would devote the same
length of time to n "spree" in Springfield,
there would be some sense in it. They
would, in that event, pay for their own
whisky, arid would bo guiltless ot the
attempt to humbug the people into the no
tion that they are honestly inspecting our
prisons, schools and asylums. This is
rather rough on the assembled Honorables
of Illinois; but there can be little doubt
about it that the real condition and manner
of managing our state institutions cannot
be ascertained by these stated visits. The
report of a visiting commissioner who
"lighte down" among the managers of
these institutions unbidden, catching them
kx disabillk. as it were, would give the
(ieneral Assembly a more correct idea of
the merits and demerits of the manage
ment, and the needs of the inmates, than
could be formed nfter a full year devoted
to the so-called "junketing," In the one
case the institutions would be seen in their
every day apparel. In the other case they
are seen only at their best in their lioli-
Ik tiik State of Michigan doesn't obtain
her supply of whisky from Lawrcncoburg,
Indiana, where did the abominable stall
come from that has fuddled Zaeh Chand
ler's brain so confoundedly? It will take
six hogsheads of the better article to be ob
tained at Washington, to' wash out his sys
tem and restore him to his former senator
ial status. People who remember what
Chandler wps, ten years ago, will read the
following extract, which we make from his
speech before tho Michigan Republican
senatorial cacus, with feelings of surprise
and unfeigned sorrow. He is but the
mere wreck of his former self, and the ruin
wrought, is chargeable solely to whisky:
"I predict," said Chandler in the speech
referred to, "although after the 4th of
March next, the rebels will have captured,
and when 1 say rebels, I mean no disre
spect to Northern men who occupy seals
in the Senate and House; but what I do
mean to say is that a majority of the Demo
cratic caucuses of both Houses und a
majority of the caucus controls a Demo
cratic Congress, or Republican Congress for
that mutter; but I cure not who you send
thoro to co-operate with tho Democratic
party, If he gives iu his adhesion to it, and
submits to their audacious dictation, it will
bo so, Just as long as tho people submit to
it. lie will, I predict be controlled by
rebel influences; or whether you nominate
for your standard bearer in 1880, the man
who they didn't love und .lid mt
and fear-U. S. Grant, or whether It
, be tho gullunt standard bearer, Ulalue, of
Maine, or whether you nominate John Sher
man, it will be tho same, and I will march
shoulder to shoulder with you to snatch
from the rebel grasp the capital of the na
tion, and give treason a bnck seat, which it
has striven, and is striving to dominate in
tho interests of tho South, as in the days
when tho slave driver's whip could be heard
under the very shadow of tho Washington
monument." It may have been that the
Republicans of the Michigan legislature
were moved by a humane impiise in voting
for Chandler. But, be that as it may, they
have rescued him from Michigan whisky,
which, in twoyears more, would have fitted
him for the mad house. It is merely the
wreck of the man, however, that is rescued;
tho thought of what it has been, and the-
hope that it might bo patclicd up some
what, doubtless moved the Miclnganders to
THE CAPITAL UPON WHICH THEY
One Reuben E. Davis was a Greenback
candidate for congress from Mississippi,
last fall, and was beaten by the candidate
who was supported by the Democrats.
Smarting under his defeat, resentful, and,
like all other Mississippi politicians, en
tirely unscrupulous, this man Davis appears
before the Potter committee and swears
that only intimidated negroes voted for his
opponent; that fraud and violence prevailed
everywhere, and that white men who voted
against the Democratic party, were socially
ostracised. He had been burned in effigy,
himself, and was m constant fear of assassi
nation. This much of the squelched Green
backer's testimony has been published by
Republican newspapers all over the country;
but not one word of the following: Tiiat
although "fraud and intimidation were gen
eral," he didn't name a single case of either,
lie had been burned in effigy, but didn't
name a single witness by whom he could
prove the fact. He feared assassination,
but didn't pretend to say that anything of
the kind had ever been attempted; and he
failed to name a single individual who had
even heard him threatened. His opponent
secured the support of negroes through in
timidation or violence; but he failed to
uanie a single negro who had
been intimidated or who had been
subjected to violence. And thus, when
placed in juxtaposition, the generalities of
Davis' testimony are destroyed by the de
tails. Upon such evidence as this, and
such as is drawn out of negroes who are so
densely ignorant that they do not under
stand the nature of an oath, has the Repub
lican party grounded i's charges of terrorism
in Mississippi. Reputable, intelligent
white men coimj forvard aud swear that
th election was quirt at the very polls
where defeated candidates and ignorant ne
groes swear there were fraud and intimida
tion. Republicans accept the testimony of
the vengeful white men and ignorant black
men, as "gospel truth;" but reject the testi
mony of respectable and intelligent white
men, as false, and totally unworthy of be
lief. We do not pretend to saj that there
have not been cases of intimidation and
violence in Mississippi. We lelievc that
negroes have been bull-dozed by Repub
lican negroes as well us by vhite Demo
crats; but wo insist that no evidence to
warrant such a conclusion has been drawn
out by the Republican side o' the Potter
committee. All attempts in tlat direction,
thus far, have resulted in sigial and dis

Restless nerves, at least those that are
constantly so, are weak ones at well. The
true way to tranquiiize them thoroughly is
to strengthen them. It may he, nay, it very
often is necessarv to have recourse to a seda
tive or even an opiate, in dangerous cases of
nervous inquietude, hut tho continued use of
such unnatural palliatives, is greatly to W
deprecated. Though not, in a restricted
sense, a pacific for nervousness, llostetter's
Stomach Hitters is eminently calculated to
so allay and eventually overcome it, a fact
which the recorded experience of many goes
to substantiate. This inestimable tonic, by
promoting digestion, assimilation and se
cretion, touches the three key notes upon
which tho harmony of all the bodily organs,
depends, and the result is that fresh stoics
of vitality are diffused through the system,
ot which the nerves receive their due ap
portionment, and grow tranquil as they
