Tub heirs of the late New York million
aire, the aged Lord, are smart beyond a
doubt. They have succeeded in bulldoz
ing their stepmother out of fifteen thou
sand dollars more, and will, in the long
run. iret all tha rest of what her husband
The Vicksburg Herald says that Jeff.
Davis is not a member of the Democratic
conservative party of Mississippi, tested by
its last platform, "for he has never accepted
the amendments, has, never been recon
structed, but, on the contrary, glories in
the belief that there are many in the South
who are unreconstructed.
There ia a movement on foot in the isle
of Erin to revive the Celtic language, which
has been going rapidly into disuse in Ireland,
whilo among Irishmen in this country it is
almost totally neglected. In 1851 about
800.000 persons spoke Irish in Ireland ; in
1871 the number had fallen to 320,000.
Throughout Ireland less than 4,000 people
can be found who aro able to read an Irish
book, and not a 6ingle Irish newspaper is
being published. The new proposition is
' to establish primary schools in Ireland and
add a Celtic chair to tho faculties of the j
higher institutions of learning.
Hickman haB quarantined against all
steamers proceeding either up or down the
river. The fever was communicated to the
town last year by tho landing of tho Gold
en Rule, August 16, and by the brief so
journ of the John D. Porter, near the wharf
on July 27, during which some of her men
came on shore in a yawl. To these con
tacts the State Board of Health attributes
the plant of the scourge in Hickman,
where the local conditions were very favor
able to energize the poison. The severe
suffering of that town last year justifies the
pcoplo in taking the most stringent meas
ures to save themselves from another visita
tion. The Rev. J. S. Anderson resigned his
pastorate of the Methodist church at
Charles City, Iowa, without any apparent
reason, and mysteriously disappeared, leav
ing his wifo and children behind. Mrs.
nayes, wife of a church trustee, had previ
ously gone away, ostensibly to visit relatives,
and her stay was strangely prolonged.
People remembered that the clergyman and
Sister Hayes had been very attentive to
each other, and it was soon surmised that
they had eloped. They were traced to
where they had established a homo for
themselves under assumed names. Ander
son had decided to change his profession
to that of medicine, which he had studied.
The pair were arrested, and in the woman's
trunk were letters written by the clergy
man before the elopement.
The Quincy Herald thinks that His
. Fraudulcncy, Hayes, has become very tired
of telling tho country that very soon lie
would commence a rigid enforcement of
civil service reform. In fact there is but
little reason to believe that ho ever enter
tained a regard for an honest adininiiitra
tion 10 much above his regurd for the inter
ests of the Republican party as to give him
1 any serious intention at all of putting Into
' practical operation his ostentatious profes
sions in regard to civil service reform. Ac
cording to a special from Washington he
told Congressman Harmer that "so fur as
the civil service order was concerned, it
wai never hit intention to restrain any R
publican' ia doing oil in his power to pro
moto tlio success of the Republican purty."
If President Ilaycs were ftblo to retain the
gamo opinions on this subject fori day or
tvo at a timo it is possiblo that people
might form somo estimate of his views in
the matter, and probably could better un
derstand what ho meant by the famous or
der. Of ono thing there seems to be a uu
animity of opinion and that is that the or
der was never intended to reform anything,
and wo don't think the president need
felicitate himself that ho has ever fooled
Pennsylvania republicans may be will
in' to follow Giant in 1880, but weren't
prepared to risk him in the canvass this fall.
At the recent convention a Pittsburgh dele
gate offered a resolution committing the
convention to General Grant as a presiden
tial candidate. A correspondent says: "It
took half an hour for tho sensible men on
the committee to argue the expediency of
adopting such a resolution to a few political
idiots who insisted on its adoption; and
fianlly it was got rid of by voting it down.
Only three members supported it when it
came to tho test of a vote
The Christian Hilton and the Christian
owners of Slanhattan beach hold the Jews
as unfit associates for decent people, but
the Christian Union, an ably edited and
widely circulated newspaper, estimates
them as the leading people of the world.
Tho Rothschilds brothers could, for in
stance pay off our National debt, and still
remain the richest men in the world. It is,
as tho Union says, wonderful to contem
plate that whilo 10,000 Jews hover about
captive Jerusalem and millions more look
wishfully Zionward,thc Rothschilds Jews
-can count up their $3,400,000,000, and to
day the two prime ministers of Great Britain
and France, Benjamin Disraeli and Jules
Simon, are both Jews. Jews the bankers
of Europe's kings Jews the premiers of
70,000,000 of civilized people. All this, too,
where a century ago the poor Jews were
hunted from nation to nation like wild
beasts. Now this once depiscd people are
marching to the front in riches and honor,
Ik the miners of the lar West are not
given to romancing they certainly have seen
marvelous things, and been subjected to
singular experiences. In the Colorado pa
pcrs before us many curious stories are told,
One of them is to the effect that a rat in at
tempting to jump across the mouth of the
Consolidated Virginia shaft, miscalculated
the distance, and falling 1,500 feet below
struck on top oi the bald head of a miner,
and exploded like a bomb. The miner
thinking that a rock had struck him on the
head and dashed his brains out, was recusi
tated after great effort, and even then de
plored the fate that subjected him to a life
without "a d d ounce of brains to do his
thinking." A dog that tell down an 800 tect
shaft, killed the two men upon which it
alighted, its body being crushed to a pulp.
Because of mishaps like these, the bottom
of a shaft is considered one of the best
places in the world to keep away from. It
is not, among old miners at least, considered
a desirable loitering place.
The Terra Haute Express, a greenback
organ of decided ability, comes down upon
the Republican party in very plain terms.
We make tho following extract from its
article: "'The Republicans claim the
right to rule because they put the rebellion
down, and havo ever since attempted to
keep the spirit of the rebellion alive as an
excuse to be kept on guard. If the South
was guilty of disloyalty prior to and dur
ing the war by its efforts to estrange one
section of tho Union from another, how
much less so is the Republican party for at
tempting to perpetuate that estrangement?
If tho South is guilty of making that
breach, the Republican party is equally so
for keeping it open. Its efforts to prevent
the healing of tho wounds of war are as
culpable as were those that inflicted them.
Every demagogue who attempts to alienate
the people of ono section of our common
country from those of another is a traitor,
and deserves a traitor's doom. And when
Sherman, Chandler and Garfield go through
tho country shaking tho bloody shirt, dar
ing and' tantalizing the North and South
again to hostile positions, they should be
looked upon and regardud as rebels, and
the worst enemies of peace, harmony and
union, among tho people of this re
A BRICK THAT HITS CAIRO.
Rev. P. II. Kroh, of Anna, is furnishing
the News, of that place, a series ot artic
les on live subjects. His stylo is crude, but
io manages to inject a good deal of com
mon sense into hi8COlltrbutions., Speaking
of that species of avariciousness that impels
tho merchant to "go for all tho money in

"Merchants are tho class of men who

want to live themselves, but aro not will
ing that others should live. Instead ot
sticking to and making a specialty of their
own business, they will attach , to it any
thing and everything out of which thry
can make a dollar.
In a city like this wo have tailors, shoe
makers, jewelers, 6addlers, blacksmiths,
tinners, bakers, etc. Now, if they dealt in
only that which legitimately belongs to
their lino of business, they could live and
the other industries could live also. But
they seem to be possessed with a kind of
greediness which is not at all commendable.
I say u'ivc all a chance. Their modus ope
randi helps them a little, it is truo; yet it
cripples all the rest. Somo even go so far
as to sell lumber and portable horse-mills
Let every tradesman make, buy and sell
that which belongs to his business, and let
other folks' business alone
They answer to what I have said; "This
is a free country, a man can buy and sell
what he pleases, and those who don't like
it have a way of helping themselves," and
this answer is all true. It a man wants to
be gobblc-up-cvcrything, he can do it, even
if it docs drivo tradesmen out of a, com
munity, and decreaso tho population of a
city instead of increasing it. Everybody to
his own kind of business. Let the man
who raises vegetables of all kinds, do it
and make a specialty of it, sell them and
get the benefit of his labor, thereby sup
porting himself and family. "Live and
let live" is a good motto for all; tarry it
out, I say if it takes all summer."
