IT Is NOT AT ALL improbable that
the Nationals will hold the balance
of power in the next House of
Representatives at Washington.
THE STATE DEMoCRATI(U E cutivo
Committee met in Columbia on
Thursday, to consult with tr"
County Chairmen in reference to
the time of holding the State Con.
vention. The first day of August
THE ATTORNEY-GENERAL has do

fund in the county must bo appor

to which it belongs. It cannot be

THE CAMERONS have, as usual,
dictated to the Republican party of
Pennsylvania. Henry R. Hoyt has
been nominated for governor. The
Nationals, who claim a hundred
thousand votes, have nominated a
man named Mason. The Demo
cratic convention has not been held.
Ruion nAs rr that Marshal Robert
M. Wallace will be the Republican
candidate for governor. The mo
mentum with which the Democratic
party would sit down on him would
be exceeded only by the weight
with which they would mash out
his respected father, the ex-Con
gressmon from the fourth district,
should he b induced to enter the
lists as the standard bearer of
IF THE DEMOCRATS fail to pushl
their electoral investigation scheme
through the Ilouse, they should
resign and come home. The Demo
crats for several years have shown
a most disgraceful want of back
bone as a party in Congress.
Despite the fact that they swept
the country by a majority of a
quarter of a million votes (and a
million white votes) lust fall, elected
their President and the House,' and
hung the Senate in the balance,
they have suffered the Radical
minority to flaunt their insolence
in the face of the country. In
every appropriation bill the House
yields to the Senate. In all party
matters they are afraid to assume
the aggressiv'e, and they suffer
their opponents to retain their
prestige by slheer impudence. Now
that the'issue has been jomned, the
Democrats mst assume the aggres
Bive and push the fight to the bitter
end. 4ggressiveness always tells
in party contests.
A Spiritualistic Seance.
Anvlspiritualistic seanco a
held in Columbia on Wednesday,
the object being to recall to earth
the ghost of the defunct Radical
party. A number of mediums were
p resent: among them R. B3. Elliott,

Bowen, Thomas B. Johnston, WVil-.
son Cook, F. J. Ensor, S. A. Swvails,
June Mobley, and a dark horse
are not divulged to mortal ears.
The saance cannot be pronounced
to have been due to the absence of
a nuiberledn clivyns
mesmerists and mnaterialists. Chamn

refused to rise. The. mediums felt
ineomfortable,. except Ensor,. who

guarantees to all citizens the right
peacefully to assemble, and nothing
can be urged against a meeting at
any time of such members of the
Republican committeo as are not
fugitives or convicts. But common
sense suggests that it is a woful
waste of money to spend it in this
way. Tho committee had bettor

Tm: FAMIrLY OF JFIRnsON DAVIS.
-Mis Jeff'erson Davis is described
as being at present a very stout,
very intelligent and very anial)le
looking woian. Her face is roun-I,
she has a large and expansive mouth
and black hair, strcIked with gray.
She is kindhearted, and is said by a
correspondent of the Chicago T'i,nes
to 1)e much liked in Memphis, es
pecially by yong peiol. Mr.
Davis is very thin, and looks very
old and broken down. Their eldest
daughter-a gentle and graceful
young wOialn-is married and lives
in Memphis. ''iev have two other
children, one a girl of sixtecn, now
at school in Gerimany, whither Mrs.
Davis took her last s,umiter, and
the other, a young mai, now in
Memphle i5, Jellerson Davis, Jr. Ho
is about. 22 years of ago. Ho has
his mother's large, not handsome
face, and is an awkward, loquacious,
good-natured sort of an overgrown
boy. 'lie Davis family is coinpara
tively poor now, and Mrs. Davis
frequently alludes to "our poverty"
in a jocular way.
DIsrnOrouTIN or LAnornq.-A
man near Pittsburg, Pa., recently ad
vertised for a book-keeper, and with
in twenty-four hours he had one bun
drodand thirtet.n applicants for the
position. Subsequently he sought a
man for his farm by the same nmears,
and had eight responses. Those
figures represent very fairly the
disproportion of laborers in the va
rious industrial pursuits. There are
men needed in abundance for agri
culture and other manual labor, but
when a young man can wvrito a pret
ty fair hand and balance the cday's
transactions in a country store, he
fools above thme farm, the anvil or
the benCh. This is all wrong, and
is of a piceo with other jilatedi
notions that have crept into society.
