OPPONE14rS o Senator 1ill claim
that he Is in the same boat with
Murphy, because he. while United
States Senator, tried to do for a fee
what Murphy succeeded in doing. It
is charged, also, that he ol'ered to
compromise with Murphy, and say
nothing for half the fee. If so this
makes Murphy no better, but Senator
A MILITARY comtilssion is Investi
gating charges of cowardice preferred
against Major Reno who, it is alleged,
stood with several hundred men
with!n hearing of' the battle and
allowed Custer and all his men to be
massacred by the Indians. The case
made against him ls quite strong, but
Heno claims that he can successfully
refute all charges,

Two MoRMON ladies recently visited
Mrs. Hayes and represented that the
enforcement of the anti-polygamy laws
of Congress will make outcasts of
fifty thousand women and make thou
sands of innocent, children illegiti
mate. This view of the case presents
an awkward dilemma. The best
compromise would be to let the
present status rest, but visit with
severe punishment 'any polygamic
marriages in future.
EurUBUrCAN and Democratic Sena
tore are both preparing for a heavy
battle in Congress. The former, it is
said, will inscribe the Solid South, a
specie resumption and the national
banks on their banners, and make an
aggressive campaign. The Demo
crats have appointed a committee to
prepare a programme of action. John
Sherman is looming up as a presi
dential candidate. The anti-Grant
Western Republicans are pushing him
to the front.
Tu Njw YORK Herald publishes a
good deal of stuff in a reported con
versation of a number of ex-Confeder
Mes on Grant's candidacy. These ex
Confeds are going for him and Aay
that thousands of their old comrades
will do likewise. Grant's clemency
as a general received high praise, and
the escape of General Lee from hang
ing was attributed to him. The
names of these Gratit, Confederates
are not given, and as John Mosby is
on his way to eat rice with chopsticks
with Chinese Mandarins, we are at a
loss to guess. Tho clemency of the
general was long ago buried beneath
the malignity of a partisan presidlent,
anid the South wants no more of
The Brazilian Trade.
An earnest movement is on foot to
induce Congress to subsidiz.e a line of
steamships between New York or
Philadelphia and Brazil, Brazil is
taking quite a position in the indne
trial world, her imports during flve
years reaching four hundred and
seventy-one millions, and her exports
Ave hundred and seventy-seven mil
lions of dollars. During that time the
United States has imported from
Blrazil two hundred and seventy-four
millions worth of products and has
returned to her only forty-eight mnil
lions. Thus while we purchased
half her products we sent but little in
return, and the differenice represents
just so much gold taken from our
shores. The subsidizers attribute this
to the fact that Europe has nine lines
of steamships to Brazil, while the
United States has but one, and that
begun last year without even a postal
contract. In consequence of this,
orders sent from this country to
Brazil go first to Liverpool, thence to
Rio Janeiro, and the goods are ship
ped to Liverpool and re-shipped to
New York. Both the distance passed
over and the time required to fill
orders militate greatly against all
efl'orts to build up a trade. Great
Biritain eordoys almnost a monopoly, in
consequenco of her carrying facilities,
while it is claimed that with a quick
* line America could run thme mother
country out of thme market in the
.articles the Brazilians principally re
* quire. The advocates of a Brazilian
subsidy make a strong case; but the
* government subsidized all sorts of
firauds so loosely a few years ago that
Congress is afraid now to lend aid to
even worthy objects. It is reported,
huwever, that the different applicants
for subsidy will combine forces and
carry their schemes through. It
would be a good thing if the South
American trade coul becaptred.

And no phrenologist could find
A difference in the bumps.

TnE STArE PENITENTIA Ry.-The re
cently elected directors of the State
Penitentiary have determined to in
augurate a most desirable reform in
regard to the comfort and health of the
inmates of that institution. It has
been the custom heretofore to allow
railroads and other contractors to ex
change all invalid and ill-used con
victs for sound and able-bodied ones.
The result of this arrangement has
been that the convicts have been
overworked and ill-treated to
such an extent as to cause
a rate of mortality that approached
Mirteen per cent. last year-one hun
dred anid six h-iving died out of about
six hundred. It is now made to the
Interest of the contractors to provide
for the health and comfort of the
prisoners in their charge, and to fur
ther the same end, the superintendent
of the prison will be required to make
fre9uent and unexpected visits to the
various places where they are em
ployed, for the purpose of porsonal in
spectiQin as to their treatment. No
prisoner can be returned to the peni
tentiary henceforth until the time of
the contract under which he was hired
shall have expired. Contractors will
presumably be more humane, in order
to save doctors' bills and to get the
most work out of the convicts.
Ho Fou LInERIA.-The directors of
the Exodus Association held a meet
ing Thursday afternoon, at which ar
rangements were made for the imnedi
ate departure of the Azor for Liberia,
with another batch of emigrants. The
arrangenents for this trip, however,
are somewhat different from those of
the last trip. The Azor, it seems, is
mortgaged to Capt. Holmes and the
mate of the vessel. The last named
gentleman has disposed of his interest
to the captain, who will n!t at present
press his claims. It is proposed to
dispatch the Azor for Monrovia on
the 20th of February next, with 175
passengers and an assorted freight list,
if these can be procured. The pass
sengers on this occasion will not con
sist of stockholders of the Exodus As
sociation. It is proposed to adver
tise for passengers at $37.50 for the
passage, including their food during
the entire voyage. After the passen
gers have landed at Monrovia they
will, of course, have to look out for
themselves. The leaders of the Libe
rian Exodus Association expect to get
a good freight list also, and claim that
they can transport provisions aind sun
dries at rates which will give a hand
some profit to those merchants who
desire to ship goods to the black . -

WonurtNG 'rHE ROADS.-A recent
Act of the Legislature in relation to
tho repairs of hig~hways and bridges
changes the law inrelation to persons
liable to road duty. Section 2 amends
the act of March 19, 1874, by striking
out "eighteen and forty-five," and in
serting "sixteon to fitty-five," where
it prescribes the ages between which
able-bodied males can be compelled to
wvork, so far as Chester and Edgefield
counties are concerned. Section i
simply inserts "sixteen to fifty" Instead
of "eighteen to forty-fide," and the
title limits the operation of the whole
act to the counties of Laurens, Ander
son, .Kershaw, Fairfield, Richland and
Williamsburg. How wvill this act be
The,color'ed engineer of a train in
Georgia, a few weeks ago, saw a cow

One night last week, at a par ty in
Toronto, a young man was frighten

daring exhibition of a revolver,
when the weapon was accidentally
discharged, the bullet entering the
young man's side, indlicting a seri.

young men whose revolvers Contain

"FZnZns.-"-We were talking to

made as clear as we could the fact

"Darius couldn't sleep, coild he ?"
BY unanimous consent, "No,

Having thus developed the con
science point, we launched our
final question with a good deal of
"Well, now, dear children, what
is it makes the bed soft?"
Quick as flash from a four-year
old cane the reply, "Fedders."
That closed the ethical discussion.
