A Georgia court has just made a
railroad pay fifteen dollars for kill

are tying all their stump-.tailed curs

It is alleged that great frauds have
been perpetrated heretofore in the
contract to supply postal cards.
Many of theso have weighed only
four pounds to the thousnud, in~
stead of six, while the paper has
contained twenty per cent. of clay
in it instoad of ton, thus causing the
cards to blot. The brother of As
sistant Postmaster General Tyner
is implicated, as ho was general
postal card inspector. The new
cards will be of two colors, and of
much better quality.
.Evarts on the Rampage.
Secretary Evarts is preparing a
letter upon so-called Southern out
rages, in which he will define the
position of the administration, and
set forth the duties demanded of the
South. A recent lynching in Mis
sissippi, in which the daughter of the
offender was mortally wounded in
'defending her father, will furnish a
text for this pious homily. Other
lynching affairs will receive com.
mont, and possibly a full dish of
Southern horrors will be presented.
Now, all this is well enough. No
one deprecates more than the law
abiding poogrle of South, the sporad
ic deeds of violence occurring at long
intervals within her borders, and a
sharp reprimand from the State
department directed against lawless
and turbulent spirits will not be
amiss. But Secretary Evarts should
not stop here in his self-imposed
task of roformation. A modicum of
censure would not be out of place
nearer home. For every outrage
occurring in the South, a crime of
equal horror is chronicled in the
North. Fifteen "Molly Maguires"
are now under sentence of death in
Pennsylvann' for murdering certain
parties wvho were obnoxious to their
.organization. Not more than ten
days ago, sixty non-union workmen
wore brutally poisoned in Illinois by
striking miners whose places they
had supplied. A few months since,
isix Chinamen were murdered in
Butte county, California, by a so
eret society, their crime being solely
that they were Chinamen and
worked for a fewv cents less a day
than the r ate established by Cauca
sian laborers. Moreover, in the
pious1 commnniuties of New England,
whero the people thank God that
they areo not as other men are, it is
not an iunusual thing for husbands

Why Seetary Evarts should sin..
gle out the peop)1le of the South wvho
have been taught by the outrageous
.legislation of his own p)arty to rely
upon themselves for redress of in
juries, while, like the priest and
Levite of old, he passes by those
who have been set uponOu and foully
wronged in the highways near his
own home, is a question that others
must answer. To the people of this
section it is but the manifestation of
a spirit of unfairness either on the
part of the Socretary himself, or of
the Northern p~eople, to whose big
otry and fanaticism he must p~ander
im order to retain popularity.
We had fondly hoped that the
removal of the troops from the
Southern state houses had put an
end to the cry of negro persecution.

falsehoods ? Will Secretary Evarts

The Senate bill to provide for the
interchange of circuits by the circuit

with some important amendments,
which were concurred in, and the

The Senate then proceeded to
consider the case of Mr. J. M.
McCay, who had refused to deliver
up the memorandum-book of the
Republican Printing Company. His
lawyer, Mr. Maxwell, after some dis
cussion, gave up the book, and the
Senate postponed action on McCay's
contempt till Saturday.
The appropriation bill was then
taken up and discussed.

HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES.
Several bills of minor importance
were read a third time passed and
sent to the Senate.
Mr. Orr, from the committee on
Privileges and Elections, reported
on the case of Prince Martin, from
Fairfield, that the protest against
him had been withdrawn, and there
fore the jurisdiction of the commit
tee was at an end, but that a new
protest had been presented on the
ground that Martin was a bigamist.
The committee asked to be dis

affidavits :is to the matter.
Air. Hamilton said that Martin should
be allowed to take his seat on presenting
his credentials and purging hiinself of his
contempt. He said that ho thought the
charge of bigamy might truly be brought
against two-thirds of the meubers of the
Mr. Blue said he did not wish the
House to put itself in the position of
seating a -member this session, and of
finding himl in the penitentiary when
they coie hero next session.
br. Gray said that the House had a
right to protect its own purity, and to
exclude men who were grossly ininoral,
<ven though they were legally elected,
and that Martin had forfeited any prima
facie strength his case might have by his
having been a member of the revolution
ary Mu' okey House.
Mr. Connor said the H:uso could not
act on a question of character till it was
settled by the courts. As to the protest
onthe ground of unfairness in the elect i in,
it was not before the House, now that the
protest was withdrawn.
The resolution to swear in Martin
was then adopted, when he appeared
and raid: "I beg the House's pardon
for my contempt of it last fall" He
then presented his credentials and
was sworn in.
The bill to alter the fence law was
discussed without action.

The Edgofleld Advertiser says:
"There is a coal-black negro man in
our vicinity who will soon have a
beautiful white stomach-a stomach
covered with as pure, white, Demo
cratic skin as ever grew in E"dge
field. This no doubt sounds both
ridiculous and alarming, but we
will explain. Some weeks back, Dr.
Walter Hill and Dr. Wallace Bland
cut off from the stomach of this
negro a huge tumor weighing many
pounds, and upon the large bare
spot left by the operation they have
planted numberless little stars of
skin nipped from their own arms.
These stars have taken root and are
fast spreading out to meet each
other, so that, as we have already
said, the black man will soon have a
beautiful white Democratic stomach
-at all events on the outside. Science
is wonderful--and in this case noble.
Skin is about all the Radicals and
negroes have left us, and to be thus
generous with it is certainly

that the Russian government admits
into its service only such surgeons
as are graduates of Russian universi
ties, or have concluded their studies
in the government medical institu
tions for the education of surgeons.
The New York Timnes is getting
more outspoken against the Presi
dent's policy. The complaint, it
says, is not groundless or unreason
able ; on the contrary, it reflects the
impression produced upon honost
Republicans of the more radical
type, and is undoubtedly shared in
strong Republican States to a
larger extent than sanguine sup
porters of the President have been
willing to admit. It says that the
two States of South Carolina and
Louisiana are irretrievably lost.
But it holds that to quarrel with the
President will but injure the party.
MR. BEECHER's ADvICE ABOUT
H~OUsEKEPINo.--r. Beecher, after
sprinkling twenty-six babies Sunday
before last, advised young people
when they married to set up house
keeping for themselves. He would
not take any consideration for the
three years of his life when he
settled down in the immortal county
of Dearborn, town of Lawrenceburg,
in Indiana, where he was paid at
the rate of $400 a year. With $200
of that money ho came East and got
married. After he and his wife re
turned to Indiana they lived in two
rooms. Whlat furniture they had
was given to them ; and, continued
Mr. Beocher, "If I was put upon my
confession, I should say that I wore
Judge Burke's clothing." The
clergyman somewhat humor'ou sly
described the home and his battle
for life, and feelingly added:
"When I look back to those happy
years, I wvouldn't part with them
for untold gold." He continued
that it was a great mistake for young
people to imagine that they must
defer marriage until. they might

Popular suffrage in Italy is some
thing of a fraud. The people of
Italy number 26,000,000. The oleo..
toral body does not consist I of
more than 500,000. Of these 250,
000 refuse to avail themselvos of

"the will of Italy" is represented or
