Now that the place for holding the
political conventions has been decided
upon, and the time designated, we may
look for more activity in political circles.
The state conventions will come next, aud
ths various county committees will call
conventions to appoint delegates to the
same. This will be the first preliminary
work. After the nominations are made a
closo organization will be effected by the
formation of clubs in the different wards
and townships. Then the hot work of the
campaign will commence, and it is going
to be a hot campaign from the word "go."
Old politicians think it will be as vigorous
as the campaign of 1840. Both parties are
preparing for a hard pull.
The practice of placing buudles of
newspapers intended for the mail
on top of the mail boxes at the street corners
is rapidly growing in this city. It is done
also larger cities, where frequent
ly piles f newspapers ore several
teet high on top of the
boxes and are never disturbed by those who
have no business to do so. There is noth
ing objectionable in the practice, but it has
given a critical observer occasion to remark
that when a woman wraps up a newspaper
for mailing, it looks precisely like a well
stuffed pillow with a narrow bandage of
lint wrapped around the centre. It is at
nee a something that is fearfully and won
derfully made; but nine to one, no woman
would be able to tell how eke made it.
For some reison a good one, no
doubt, but which was unknown to any one

AX OI'CS CONFESSION.
From the Paducah News of Saturday,
we clip the following joyous blast over the
discovery that the water there had come to
a stand, which is introduced by flaming
headlines ending in exclamation points:
"at a stand."
"At nn eurly hour this morning' a ven
turesome citizen paddled out to the spot
where the government gauge stood before
it was inundated, and examined the marks
en the south wall of the boat store. The
result of his observations must have been
eminently satisfactory, for he turned imd

which sounded like a blast from a fog-horn

citizens crawled from their beds began
examing the private water mirks on their
premises; and, shortly, thousands oftongues
in hundreds of homes were wagging with
the joyful news that the beginning of the
end was at hand. The fact is something
to be glad over. It w something worth cel
ebrating. It is a local Fourth of July and
Christmas combined. II the ISews had its
way, it would commemorate the event with
the ringing of br!!, the blure of trumpet
and the thunder ot cannon. It would or
ganize a procession of boats to parade the
city and fill the lambent air with many fire

I'oiiimitti'o some weeks sbuv was ,a war
rant issni'd in Murray's handwriting,
making charges and costs for the mi in of
fs". lor service and mileage mid other
fees for the arrt'st of a man w ho really
walked into Murray's otllce and gave him
self up. The oftendcr, the storv goes,
lived some hundred miles from Louis
ville. The l'ostnnter at his place of
residence fancied he had violated t lie laws
relative to the use of mails for lottery
puriof..'s, and so charged. The man said
to the rostumstcr that he was ready to
meet the charges, so they together went
to LouUville, entered Murray's olllee,
w here the charges were made and the de
fence entered. Murray, however, it is
said, told the Postmaster that he was en
titled to his full fees and mileage and
otln r expenses of bringing the prisoner,
and made out a warrant with all the
charges, amounting to eighty-six dollars.
This was dually disputed when the facts
came out, and .Murray reduced it twenty
tox dollars. This document, however, in
Muriy's own handwriting, Mr. Springer
says he considers the most Important of
all the papers sent him, and this one
now mining. It was, he said, among
tne papers when first sent him, but
not among them when sent the second
time from the Department. Inquiries made
by Springer of the ollieials at the Depart
ment of Justice show that Governor Mur
ray attorney, .Mr. Wilson, of Louisville,
was probably the only person permitted
to handle these papers since they were In
the hands of the committee the llrst time.
Mr. Springer says he desires to be ex
plicitly understood, however, as making
no charges, as it is possible the document
may lie overlooked and was left at the
Department when the others were sent to
the committee the last time. lie, how
ever, proposes to thoroughly investigate
the matter, and will make It warm for
somebody if it appears that the document
is reallv missing and nobody but Wil

BitooKi.vx, N. Y., Feb. Ii7. An appro

memory of .Minister Hunt at Brooklyn
Navy Yardt, he exact nature of which,
however, Commodore Upshur has not

Minister Hunt was a native of South

to the war he was an old line Vhig, and
during the rebellion he was a stout
Union man. He was a lawyer by profes

and accomplished speakers in the South.
He was attorney for General Kel

Judge Hunt was the candidate of
the Republican party for Attorney-General

was postponed till to-morrow. Members
of the committee express an opinion that
the proposition of Scales will be passed.

Washington, 1). C, Feb. 27. Sen
ator Van Wyck offered a resolution
directing the l'ost-olllce Committee to In
quire, whether at any time the Western
Union or Baltimore Sc. Ohio Telegraph
Companies or ollicers of the companies
had entered into a contractor negotiation
for the purpose of consolidation or com
bination of the companies. Referring to
the testimony of Dr. fJreen, he said this
information is needed to help a general
Inquiry. There was no doubt the West
ern Union would gobble all com
peting lines as it had done In the past,
notwithstanding the promises of the
companies to act iu the interest of the
Senator Plumb could see no practical
use of such an Investigation. So far as
he was concerned he didn't expect to be
guided in his vote by such information.
Senator Piatt moved to refer the reso
lution to the committee. He said: "I
desire the (iovernment to assume, In
some way, the telegraph, as a means of
transmitting intelligence through the
country. 1 have no quarrel with either
company. Congress has nothing to do
with any quarrel between the companies.
If they tlesire to consolidate no power of
Congress can stay them. It is necessary
we should have information as to wheth
er the people are paying too much for tho
transmission of information by the tele
graph." Senator Ingalls said the committee
had already gone Into the subject.
Senator liayard remarked that Congress
was taking an extraordinary position if It
assumed to exercise compulsory power
to disclose the affairs of private cor
porations. The resolution was finally re
ferred to the committee.
Senator Sherman presented the re
ports of the sub-committee on tho Dan
ville riots to the effect that the House did
not pass the bill appropriating money for
the investigation, and that the Secretary
of the Senate refused to honor the vouch
ers on the ground that there was no fund
out of which to pay them. For this
reason the sub-coniinlttee would b
obliged to suspend operations until an
appropriation was made. The report was
placed on file.'
