NINETY-SIX has had a grand cele.

A PEssIMIsTr of the press is uin
happy over the unfortunate coinci

men's foibles are brought to the
gaze of foreigners. The Vienna
Excposition was characterized by a
scandal affecting thme honesty of the
Commissioners of the United States,
aent to that place. When all the
world was at the Philadelphia .Cen
tennial, Belknap's peculiar views of
the duty of a cabinet officer were
discovered. And now, just as
Americans are running over to the
Paris fair, Minister Noyes has been
recalled from France to tell what
he knows about stealing a presi

THME News and Courier, in re
pelling charges, preferred against
Charleston in the matter of paying
taxes in Bank bills, alleges that the
State is a "quibbling debtor" en
titled to little respect at the hands
of creditors. This in the face of
the fact that a commission is sitting
for the purpose of deciding wvhether
the State shall not pay several
millions of bonds that were tainted
with fraud in the very inception
and from which no benefit whatever
accrued. There is very little of
the quibbling debtor in all this.
The Legislature in its adjustment
of the public debt went a long way
for the sole pvrposo of maintaining
the credit of the State, although

the Consolidation bondholders are
the ones who pay in State bills? ~If

The Forty-fifth Congress has ad,
journed after a session of eight
months. It is commended more
for what it did not do than for
what it did. The silver bill is
almost the only important measui e,
out of over four thousand bills in
troduced, that passed. The new
tariff bill was defeated. The army
is fixed at twenty-five thousand
men, but it cannot be used as a posse
comitatucs. Under the lead of
Speaker Randall most of the jobs
were killed, and the lobbyists are
reported as being bankrupt. The
House threw a sop to the colored
Corberus by refusing to kick out
Rainey, Smalls and Cain, who were
fraudulently elected to that body.
Out of the two hundred and
ninety-three Congressmen and
seventy-six Senators, a number will
retire this fall to the shades of
private life. Among the latter are
Patterson, Spencer, Conover and
Dorsey, the last of the carpet
baggers, besides Stanley Matthews,
Sargent and Hipple Mitchell, all
Radicals, who will be succeeded by
Democrats. The next Senate will
contain from six to fourteon Demo
cratic majority. The House at
present has a Democratic majority
of twenty, and it is extremely im
probable that this majority will be
reduced. The securing of a Demo
cratic House next time is of the
utnrost importance, for on it may
depend the Presidency in 1880.

.lessrs. Editors :-The original
signification of the name Nazareth,
as derived from the Hebrew word
netser, is sprout or shoot, and hence
we can with propriety speak of
either the ancient or the modern
Nazarenes as sprouts. Mr. J. H.
MeL. parades himself before the
public as the apostle of a new and
strange doctrine, likening himself,
with becoming modesty, to the de
spised Nazarenes of old, and, calling
high Heaven to witness, foretells the
revolutionizing of "the law-making
system of this country." This
modern Nazarene, or sprout, refers
us to the fact that "this is not the
first time the e'isdomi of the world
has been astounded at the sudden
introduction of something unlooked
for, from a benighted region, &o.,
&c. Very true, but he might have
added also, to repeat history, that
this is not the first time the good
peop)le of the Dark Corner have
attemp)ted to mould public senti
ment against the "Divine Lawyers"
as legislators. Local chroniclers
tell us that full forty vear's ago
some time, we presume, before Mr.
J. Hendrix McLane had spr-outed
a strong anti-lawvyer feeling pre
vailed in the umnbrageous recesses of
the Dark Corner. No doubt its
statesmen of that day and genera
tion made predictions after the
manner of Mr. J, Hendrix MrcLane,
but "nary" a revolution have we had
yet, although we did become in
volved in a little "unpleasantness"
a few years ago, in which even the
lawyers Look part, as well as the
disciples of our ancient progenitor.
Perhaps, Messrs. Editors, an all-wise
Providence has postpened the re
lution until such time as suits the
convenience of Mr. J. Hendrix
McLane, so as to add new lustre and
renown to his name, other than that
of "secretary pro tem." If the
aforesaid revolution, in addition to
"changing the law-making system
of this country," will also eventuate
in converting cross-road politicians
into states'nen, then will it have
achieved startling results, and the
wisdom of the world will indeed be

much fear that.his hopes wiW be

revolutions are of slow progress and
that all great changes are controlled
by old father Time, and are not
subject to the whims and caprices of
even the valiant men of tho Dark
Corner.. He will ere long learn, no
doubt to his intense disgust, that
his predicted revolution is a wild
dream, a beautiful vision of his
youth, that will never be realized.
"In the sweet bye-and-bye" he will
pass into unknown worlds, with the
conviction that his life l:as been
spent in vain, and that mankin.d has
lost a benefactor. In his last fate

the thought of a poor, miserable
devil of a lawyer representing his
native hills and valleys in the

days, and have only recently been put upon
the market. Dr. Undcrhill, the well-known
grape-grower of Croton Point, died in z87r.
S.ome of his heirs entertained temperance
views of such extreme kind, that they were
unwilling to allow the stock of wines then on
hand to be sold or any more to be made.
The grapes have sometimes been sent to
market, and sometimes left to decay upon
the vines. It is only nowv that the other heirs
have succeeded in arranging for a settlement
of thte estate and the sale of the wines one
hand. Among these Is a wine of the vintage
of 1864, described as a "Sweet Union Port,'
but suggesting the Imperial Tokay more
than any other Europecan wine, and being
wholly unlike any other wine of American
growth. Its purity, age and mellowness are
remarkable, and both physicians and wine
fanciers have a special interest In it as the
oldest native ine now accessible in any con
siderable quiantity. Trhe whole stock is in the
had fte well-known wholesale grocery
house of the Thurbers.-N. Y. Tribung,
N.o. 19, z6;7.
The above speaks for Itself, but we would
add that this Is the pure juice of the grape,
neither drugged, /iguored nor walmrd; that It
has been ripened and mellowed by age, and
for medicinal or sacramental purposes It Is
unsurpassed. It can be obtained from most
of the leading Druggists throughout the
United States, and at wholesale from the
