Tin: Democratic Governor of Mis
souri has appointed his brother-in-law
an Private Secretary. Here Is
liberal nepotism for you with a ven
geance. The Jlrst fruits that follow the

early general reduction of tlio tele
Tin: Herald Is evidently intent
upon killing Ilia Honor, Mayor .Mil
lard, for renomination and election.
It has of htto undertaken to choke
him down with praises and ilattery.
Glohge Francis Train, who is
sometimes n lunatic and always an
Infidel, was possessed of enough henc
nntl faith to invest largely In the
Credit Mobilier, and earn handsome
dividends. Thoro is considerable
method In his madness occaionally.
An act "to protect female virtue"
lias been introduced iu tho Lownr
llotiso of the Mksouri Legislature.
It provides that any man who sc
duces a woman on iiromi.se of mar
riage shall have tho choice of hitch
ing jicrmancntly or becoming nn in
mate of tho State prison for a term
not exceeding five years.
TiiEpolittcal world Is to bo regaled
at an early by an exhibition of a
lively tjisslo between Governor Mc
Cook, of Colorado, and certain prom
inent politicians, who, wo presume,
aro partly disgusted with his ml
ministration of Indian iiiTtiirs, and
partly jealous of his possiblo inllti-
enco in tho coming Senatorial contest
in case of tho admission of Colprado
as n State.
For tho informaMon of tho New
York World and Omaha Herald we
would state that tho expenses of the
West Point Cadots. attendim? Pros!-
dent Grant's inugural, nro to be
borne by those who chose to partici
pate in the ceremony. The order of
Secretary Belknap is not peremptory.
It simply gives permission to the
Superintendent of the Academy to
grant leave of absenco to nil who
apply for them on this occasion.
From tho Fremont Tribune of tho
17th, wo glean that tho Linwood coal
discovery is fully confirmed. Boring
is still progressing. At tho depth of
ono hundred feet a third vein, esti
mated to bo ovor four feet thick, had
been struck. This coal is said to be
of a very fino quality. A shaft is
also being sunk by steam iwwer, and
wo anticipate thatall doubts concern
ing this important discovery will be
solved within a few weeks.
A rimrioN numerously signed has
been forwardod to Washington by
tho workingmen of Boston against
the proposed iucrcaso of tho Piesi
tlcnt'i salary to 50,000. Tho peti
tioners arguo that wages aro always
lowest in those localities whero the
govcmmetal or official, salaries are
highest. Although wo cannot com
prehend tho logic of this theory, wo
should prefer to have Congress refrain
from changing tho Presodcntial
salaries at present.
Our reverend contemporary, the
llcpublican, throws n back-handed
slur nt General Thayer iu its yester
day's issue, by berating tho Herald
for attemptingto defend tho General
against charges of corruption. The
articloln question winds up by de
claring that "tho General has gone
Fast, and will probably attend to his
own nfi'airs; but what C. S. Bushnell
swears to will befound very nearly
right." What a pity as much cannot
bo said for what Oeorgo Washington
Secondus swears to.

The Postmaster General has receiv

mended by him, signed by ono hun
dred business men of that'eity. They
say they are very confident that the
adoption of tho telegraph businos by
tho Government will prove an im
mense benefit to tlio cntiro business
omniuiiity of tho country by in
creasing tho facilities of communica
tion between distant points, and thus
aiding tho development of trsule.
The memorial will be forwarded to

It is understood that the

taken by tlio Houso is iu accordance

Tho bill for tho distribution of

on Foreign Affairs, but its nicmbors

and n report mado to tho House.
There is a feeling in tho commit
leo against allowing tho heavy
claims of tlio instir.inco companies,
nnd if tho committee's views upon
this subject are carried out there will
undoubtedly bo a warm discussion
on tho question. Although tho bill
does not provido that Congress will

it is tho opinion of tho committee
that Congress ought to lay down the
