And ,hen it is stated that no
warrant can be issued unless there
is money in the treasury to meet
it, you may consider the par
agraph quoted above effectually dis
posed of, except in the matter of
the price paid for the printing,
which was"'600. When the bids
for doing the printing were opened,
it was found that the Journal hail
offered to do it for one year for one
dollar. If 5000 in scrip was not

the next matter calling for com

It will be noticed that the Jour.
nal does not itself believe this, but
says "it isbelieved." Very likely
some idiot does believe it-the fool
killer has not been around for some
time. Any one should know that
the printing must be given to the
lowest bidder, and the Journal's
bid was one dollar. Just what is

would doubtless be in a very dif

Neither the Police Jury nor its

the printing to the lowest bid

This idreadlcl disease is t1,hought
IV maniy to Ie ºconfine' to the hIrse I
:11nd thait other stock are not l fctt'dl
Ihy it. It was al-o thought to be a
disease peculiar to the South. Both t
of those (notio6ns are mistaken ones.
Charmon. or A.1nthrax as it shoulti
he called, is not cpecially a dis-I
ease of the horse; all herbivora as
well as swine, and even birds. are a
subject to it, and many are the
names given to it according to the 1
various localities in which it ap
pears or the part of the body in t
which it is located.
It is said to be at present pre
vailing in Franklin parish, and
much loss of stock has resulted t
from it. The cause of the disease
must be understood, and the most
usual symptoms known, before sue
cessful treatment can be expected.
The TIMES therefore now gives the t
cause, the symptoms, and the f
treatment of the dreaded disease. r
The cause is, 1st, a rich surface
,soil, abounding in organic matter;
2d, frequent inundations of banks
of streams flowing through level i
countries, and the drying up of t
ponds and lakes, leaving much or
ganic deposit; 3rd, a continuation ,
of warm dry weather, which favors t
emanations from such places as the ,
above; 4th, a condition of the sys
ten of the animal predisposing to f
the reception and growth of the 1
poison; 5th, sudden chills when u
the poison is already present; 6th,
a close atmosphere, The main
characteristic of this disease is a
black, tarry blood that will not co
agulate, containing bacteria, and,
shortly before death, spores de
velop, which are the active princi
ple of the virus in inoculation. It
may be mentioned that blood con
taining these spores has been dried,
reduced to dust, and kept four
years, at the end of which time c
they were found to be as active as r
ever in prodcdeing the fatal disease.
The symptoms are manifested in
two distinct ways, with external t
swellings and without them. To 1
the first class belong the black leg, c
bloody murrain, malignant sore e
throat, etc.; to the latter, all those c
formi s having specific. changes oft
the blood, engargement of the t
spleen, internal exudations, and a
blood-stains on the internal organs
J'ithout knowing the particular
form of the disease, only the gen- t
eral symptome can begiven, which i
are as follows: shivering, lassitude,
impaired alwetite, whitish dis
charge from the nose, increased ra
Ipidity of the pulse and breathing,
costiveness with slimy dung, or
scouring, odorous or bloody urine, i
swellings of various size on differ
ent parts of the body, or a continu
ous swelling beneath the chest and I
belly, or extreme engorgemuent ofI
the limbo or head. These are at
first hot and tender and easily in- ]
dented with the finger but soon be
come hard, the skin gets rigid and
I exudes drops of a yellow serum, or I
pure blood. With internal etfh
sions, death results. in 48 hours;
with external only, the effects may
last for weeks or even months be
fore ending in recovery or death.
Treatment is of no avail in the i
first eases, which musually die, but
the latter ones may often be treated
suIccessfhlly. If the animal is not
too weak, bleed freely. Give to
cattle, if full grown, opomnd of i
Epsom salts, calves three to four I
ounces. Horses maybe given two "
Sounces, or fire to seven drahms I
ofItarbadoes aloes. The alt. aree

Assuming this statement is true,
here is a nice state of affairs,the en
tire Mississippi Valley is depend
ent on a few men,who make the
support of their scheme, the condi
tion of their friendly disposition to
wards the valley interests. This is
not the first occasion on which the
friends of the valley have been
hampered by the selfishness of a
few men. That snickering patriot
S. S. Cox, of New York, and the I
speakership-hunting Sati Randall
of Pennsylvania, have interposed
themselves in the way of the river
improvement more than once, but,
when candidates for speaker, they
both loudly protested their intense
anxiety to see the valley reclaimed.
Now is a good time to free the
valley question from all entangle
ments and no better opportunity
could be presented, to separate the
river from every other issue, and
give it a committee of its own. As
long as it hangs on to the skirts of
the Committee Committee on Rivers and lar
hors, just so long will it be weighed
downed by every miserable little
stream,running through the district
of any Congressman whose constit
uents want an appropriation. If
the Mississippi River matter can't
stand alone uow,we had better give
it a rest for on entire generation
and plod along as usual, except,
that then we mcan msake it decidedly
interesting for the appropriation
business, having no axe to grind.
TuE TIMxxs is in favor of serving
notice on the country, that what
this valley country wants is protec
tion from overflow, that the river
is a trespasser on our property and
we want it kept off, and that who
ever keeps it off is our iend, while
whoever will not help to keep it
off is our enemy. Don't mince the
matter, but speak plainly so there
can be no mistake. If it was un
derstood that the Valley States
were disposed to throw their sup
port to the party moat friendly to
the river, we would soon have
plenty of friends, and could get all
we wahted; but as long as it is
known that, friend or foe, we will
support only a Democrat, we will
be beggars asking for a pittance,
