OCU CONGRESSIONAL OIUTORS-' IIIMs OLD
RECORD WIIAT THE PARTIES ARE OniO
From our Regular Correspondent.
Washington, June 14, 1870.
The extra session of congress is rapidly
approaching tho final scene of tho last act.
The "dramati3 personae" have posed be
fore tho country and posterity for a few
brief months. They have recited their
words witli serio-comical effuct and defect.
On the 19th of Juno they will go home.
We have too many orators in congress,
and tor some reason, or . want of reason,
they spend too much time in vindication.
There is hardly a day that some senator or
member is not In a vertical position before
the country making what is called a per
sonal explanation, ot. vindicating himself or
his party from base aspersions lies, etc,
that some other honorable senator or mem
ber has foisted upon the public and history.
Yesterday Senutor Hill defended himself
from a covert and malign attack upon 'his
record of years ago; and Senator Morrill was
ako up to vindicate tho Republican party.
Our school books tell us that our system
of government was originally composed of
legislative, executive and judicial branches.
But the great progress that wo have made
in the last hundred years seems to demand
another great governmental necessity a
branch for vindication and vituperation.
For certainly this work is becoming a little
too heavy for the legislative branch. If all
the vindication aud vituperation of con
gress could be turned over to such a co
ordinate branch of the government as I
have suggested whjch might be composed
of ill-tempered old women, there would be
a great saving of time and treasure, a great
eclaircisemcnt ot legislative business and
an improvement of fraternal feeling.
Who really cares for Senator Hill's rec
ord in the confederate senate, whether as
sailed by Senator Blaine or vindicated by
himself? What has this to do with public
supplies and systems of public policy?
And why must Senator Morrill vindicate
the Republican party? There is its record,
the world knows it by heart. All parties
are good enough in the abstract, and had
enough in their iudividaul components.
Villainy and inconsistency is not so much
the fault ot a party as of the human nature.
that is mixed up in it. Why will we blind
ourselves with cant and grand prejudices
and dunce in processions headed by dema
gogues? It is not my intention to be per
sonal, but rather universal for the evil is
everywhere. Parties as seen in their rep
resentatives are not phalanxes ot princi
ples, but rabbles of plunder and strife.
Next week congress will pull out from
the capital, and political astronomers and
microscopists will turn their glasses upon
Ohio, where the preliminary skirmishes of
a national contest have begun. Tardon the
metaphor ab astra ad Thurman and Sher
man, or is it Grant, sailing up from the un
derworld? Many astute politicians (the
many are always astute) think thut it will
be Sherman instead of Grant, but those
who stake their money on popular opinion,
iwisteu our ot an recognition by wire
workers and political machinists, arc not
ready to put up on either. Maine and
New York have favorite sous who will bo
heard from in the next nominating conven
tion. Perhaps no one rejoices more at the ap
proach of the end of the congressional ses
sion than the newspaper correspondent.
Never before hns he found tho work of
making bricks with straw alone so labori
ous as during this extra session
of caucuses and vetoes. Ho lias
exhausted his repertofro of anec
dotes, about tho naive and interesting per
sonality of brilliant rural lawyers, doctors,
farmers,etc, etc., who comprise cur national
legislative galaxy, during tho reg
ular session and if this extraordinary ses
sion had continued longer he would not
have been able to send you any more news
than your correspondent sends you here
with. ELCO ITEMS!.

For tho benefit of thoso who do not
know much aboutour villago I will say,
that it is locatod on tho Cairo and St. Louis
railroad SO miles distant from the city of
Cairo in a broad and beautiful valley, on

upon the little town with a kind of majes

evening cnusing a great excitement. Two
dwellings burned and part ot the content
of one ; the houses were a total loss; the fire
was caused by defectivo flues. They were
occupied by Parson GifTord, and Marion

Briley, which makes threo houses ho hai
lost by flro within the past twelve months.
This place is improving and bids fair to

I am authorized by one of tho owners to
say that tho flouring mill of tho Miller

engine and boiler aro placed, but the other
machinery is yet to bo adjusted.
There is not a saloon in our town, nor do
wo intend to havo any. Wo have a lodo

Most all of tho farmers aro now cutting
their wheat, which crop, I am glad to say,
promises a good yield.

The death bate of our country is get
ting tearfully alarming, tho average of life
being lessened every year, without any rea
sonable cause, the death resulting generally
from the most msiguigcant origin. At this
season of the year especially, a cold is such
a common thing that in the hurry of every
day life we are apt to overlook tho dangers
attending it and often find too late, that a
Fever and Lung trouble has already set in.
Thousands loose their lives in this way
every winter, while had Boshee's German
Syrup been taken a cure would have result
ed, and a largo billot a doctor been avoided.
For all diseases of the throat and lungs.
Boschees German Syrup has proven itselr
to bo tho greatest discovery of its kind in
medicine. Every druggist in tho country
will tell you of its wonderful effect. Over
9.10,000 bottles sold last year without a
single failure known.
A Seaiicu Waukant allows an officer to
go through your house from cellar to gar
ret, and Lindsey's Blood Seurcher is war
ranted to go through your system from top
to toes and drive out all blood diseases. Its
cures are wonderful and certified to by doc
tors, preachers and people. Scrofula, Mer
curial Diseases, Erysipelas, Tetter, Ulcers in
tho Lungs or on tho Skin, Boils, Pimples,
&c, wo warrant it to cure. It is a purely
