ity of flio legislature.
Tue Conrncll-Conkiing Republicans of
New York are damning the Democrats of
that Stato for the crimes of Tammany, but
they are using all their powers to secure an
alliance with John Kelly and his Tammany
gang. "Anything to get' and keep the
offices," is tho motto of the ring politicians
In New York, Tammany undertook to
dictate and control tho action of tho State
Democratic party, Tammany had done
this successfully many times before, and it
was certain of continued triumphs in the
future; but tho "machine" was utterly as
tounded to find that its power and influ
ence wcro gone. The rebuke it got will
have to bo only a gentle suggestion of
the strong beating it is to get.
The Rural New Yorker strongly com
aends tho new process of grinding wheat,
inasmuch as it adds at least one dollar to
the market value of every barrel of flour
manufactured under it, besides producing
from every bushel of wheat several pounds
of flour more than can bo attained by tho
ordinary method of grinding. Certainly, if
all this is true, the new method ought to
conic into immediate and universal use.
Sheriff Geo. BarriBger, of Jouesboro,
arrived last Sunday at Anna with George
Washington Gordon, arrested near Turner's
station, Du Pago county. The fellow some
three months ago committed a most brutal
outrage upon tho person of a little nine-year-oM
daughter of a most respectable
.farmer who lives south of Anna. ' The
brutfl fled nt once, but Sheriff Barringcr is
a keen and shrewd detective, and silently
dropped down on tho scoundrel at the place
above mentioned. Gordon is a tramp.
THE LAW OF MARRIAGE.
Next to the necessity for having a gen
eral standard value of money, is tho neces
sity for a lawjgovcrning marriages, 'that
will have an universal application. In a
number of the leading journals of the coun
try tho matter is receiving a thorough dis
cussion, and the demand is modo that Cou
' gross take utepii, either by a conntitutionid
amendment or otherwise, to insure such
harmony between tho marriiigo laws of the
different Suites that tho marriage that is
held as legal and tho children that aro held
as legitimate under the laws of ono State,
shall not be held as illegal and illegitimate
because of removal to another Stato. In

this difference in legal provisions often
works great hardship. An instance of tins
is seen in tho caso of Itcv. Dr. Punshon, a

returning to his home in England, found

The curiosities of the marriage

lam! aro vividly portrayed in Wilkio
Collin's novel of "Man aud Wife."
In France the consent of parents is
equisito in tho marriage of adult persons
of cither sex, and some very unpleasant
situations may result when these legal
formalities' aro not complied with.
Such discordant and conflicting marriage
laws would havo been of less serious con
sequence in an ago when travel and emi
gration were not such every day
matter of social life; but now, the
intercommunication and association of
people ot various nationalities is so com
mon, persons who have complied with the
laws of the countries in which they former
ly lived, may find themselves placed in the
most uncomfortable situations and subjected
to serions inconvenience by the marriage
laws of the States of countries into which
they may have subsequently moved. There
ought to be such a uniformity in tho mar
riage laws of all civilized countries as thai
the most 6acred rights and precious privi
leges of the people should be protected and
promoted. Probably an international con
gress on the subject would be desirable.
Washington, D.C., Sept. 24, 1879.
The grand reception of Gen. Grant at San
Francisco on Saturday, and like projected
attentions to him elsewhere, shows, at
least, two things.
First: It shows that in the North the
soldier of the late war is not forgotten. On
tho part of a few Democrats it has been the
fashion to sneer at this class of citizens. On
the part of Republicans it has been a habit
for years to profess devotion to them, and,
by unfriendly legislation to give the lie to
such professions. It is a part of the last
twelve months' Democratic history that Gen.
Rice, now candidate for Lieutenant Gover
nor of Ohio, del'eated in the
43th Congress a bill which Secretary
Schurz had devised to practically suspend
the granting of pensions to volunteers. The
general ovation to Grant will perhaps teach
tho wily and uncrupulous 'Secretary of the
Interior a lesson. Tho fact is that Grant's
service as a volunteer officer in the Federal
army to which, and not to his political
cause, this unparalleled recognition is b';ing
given, indicates a general interest in the
nortli in the soldiers of tho north. Mr.
Schurz has no reception, anywhere, because
of anything he did as a soldier, but he
should not for that reason ignore the tact
that an interest is still ielt in them. The
Grant reception nnd the 100,000 people who
attended a soldiers' meeting in tho Connecti
cut tho other day, show tho contrary.
Neither should Democrats wherever resid
ing forget it. Those of Ohio did 'not in
nominating their State ticket. They placed
on it two as gallant soldiers as ever fought,
aud on election day, despite tho Republican
money which attempts to make every
polling place an auction block, they will
havo their reward.
The extent of this Grant enthusiasm
shows, too, that, it ho chooses, he can pro
bably be the radical candidate fur the
presidency next year. This is interesting
o Democrats und Republicans alike.
Tho agricultural department have caused

index of the agricultural reports of the
patent office for 25 years for 1837 to 1801 ;

great value to public libraries and all hav

JOHN AS A SHOOTER,
Pan Francisco Bulletin. '
It is a growing custom cn tho part ol tho
Chinese to go on tho, roofs of the houses
which they occupy und tiro off their pistols.
Recently they havo, on several occasions,
been discovered m that pleasant pastime.
Firo-arius aro now things to most of tlicso
people. They have no idea what becomes
of the bell when it is discharged. Probably,
ns they do not 6ec, they think it penetrates
the vault of heaven itself. But the mis
sile describes some parabola and troes
through some window, lodges on some roof
or wounds or Wills somo individual. This
dangerous practico is tho explanation of the
stray bullets which from time to timo have
been found flyin? about this town. Al
ready one man has been 6laiu
outright by them. Several persons have
also been more or less seriously wounded.
Ralls have come whistling through panes of
glass. They have lodged in pillows near
the heads of sleeping women. They havo
injured persons on platforms of street-cars.
For a time it was supposed they were fired
by mischievous boys with air-guns, because
the report could not be heard. Rut when
the frequent reference to it in the press
brought no relief, it was evident euouirh
that the shooting was being done by parties
whom journalism does not reach. The Chi
nese being the only class in that condition,
suspicion for a long time pointed toward
them. Now, in several cases the facts have
been brought home to them. Whenever
they are in a warlike fervor they blaze away
from the roofs where they dwell. Tlie bull
travel a long distance, esplciiilly if fired
from an elevation, aud no explosion is there
fore heard where they strikq.
SfisuciSG and Avoiding Feveh and
Awe. Of all chronic diseases, fever and
ague is perhaps the lea.-t conquerable by the
ordinary resources of medicine. There is,
however, a remedy which completely roots
it out of the system in any and all of its
various phases. This celebrated r.nti-pe-
nodic is vegetable in composition, and is
not only ctlicaeious, but perfectly safe, n
thing that cannot be predicated with
truth of quinine. Ilostetter's Stomach Hit
ters is, besides, a moit efficient means of
defense against malaria, ns it endows the
physique with an amount of stamina which
enables it to encounter miasmatic influences
without prejudice to health. Perseus abuv.t
to visit, or living in, foreign countries, or
portions of our own where intermittent or
remittent fevers prevail, should not omit to
