If the moral cuticle of the Republican
party has not hardened beyond sensibili

DIED FROM HYDROPHOBIA.
Jkrsky City, Dec. 20.—About a
month ago Alfred Klump, aged 17,residing
at No. 102 Lincoln street, on the Heights,
was passing a neighbor's house, when a
dog rati out and bit him. Although the
animal's teeth penetrated the boy's flesh
to a sufficient dept!
ing was thought of the occurrence. A few
days ago Klump was taken ill, and he
rapidly developed all the symptoms of
rabies. He foamed at tho mouth, barked
like a dog, and went into convulsions at
the sight of water. At such times it was
necessary to strap him to the bed. All
that medical skill could do was done for
him, but the physicians who were sum
moned pronounced it a case of hydro
phobia, and incurable. On Monday after
noon the patient, from a fit of violence

REPUBLICAN SUGGESTIONS FOR
A SETTLEMENT OF THE
VEXED QUESTION.
TILDEN AND WJIEKLEK ATTRACT
ING PUBLIC ATTENTION.
Fi
to the N. Y. Herald to-day.
Republican Beginning to Talk of Tilden
and Wheeler—Changes if the Election
Being Thrown into the House — Ala
bama and Miysisnippi to be thrown
out if Necetmary.
Washington, Dee. 21, 187«.
The belie! gains ground here among
republicans that Florida belongs properly
to the democrats. Private information,
some of it from responsible republican
the hopes of the demo
crats. There are also fresh signs that the
republicans begin to give up the election.
Reports says that a Senator, one of the
most vigorous and extreme on the repub
lican side, said to-day that he would not
be content to accept anything less than
"Tilden and Wheeler," and politicans of
both sides who are in a position to know
what is doing and what is looked for in
the highest party quarters privately pro
phesy to-night, with apparently a good
deal of confidence, that this will be the
successful ticket.
It is reported this evening that the re
publican programme as to counting the
vote has been modified, and that it will
be held that, while the Vice President
may rightly count and declare the votes,
if objection is made to the vote of any
State he must submit the question to the
houses and not decide it himself. If Flor
ida and Louisiana, or both, should turn
out to be rightly democratic- an attempt
will he made by the republicans to throw
out the votes of Alabama and Mississippi
and thus throw the election into the House
which would of course leave the Senate to
elect Mr. Wheeler Vice President. On
Mr. Morton's theory of last March,as ex
plained by him, where two returns appear
the State must lose its vote, unless both
houses agree upon the return.
Speculation was rife to-night as to what
action would be taken by the Senate
should the Louisiana Investigating Com
mittee present a report signed by repub
licans, as well as democrats showing that
the Tilden electors of that State haa been
fairly elected. The rumor ran that the
republicans foresaw that the Senate
would have to confront this difficulty and
that they were preparing to accept their
reverse with as good grace as possible. Iu
their effort to save as much as they could
from the conflict they were, it was said,
anxious to have the election thrown into
the House, whereby they would secure
the Vice Presidency.
PRIBND8 OP II FNI »KICKS OITOSKD TO
COMTROHIBB.
Congressman Foster, of Ohio, says
that if there is any comprome movement
on foot to secure tho inauguration of
Tilden and Wheelerit will make as much
of a row among tho democrats iu the
West as would the inauguration ofHayes
because it would disappoint and anger
the numerous friends of Mr. Hendricks,
whose success is with them as much an
object as the triumph of Mr. Tilden.

dential dispute, and ono of these,
is spoken about to-day, is to hold a new
election in all the »States. Another is to
let Chief .Justice Waite decide all <lis
puted. In regard to the tir>t project —
those who suggest it even go
point out that the Revised »Statutes con
tain a clause which could be used by a
forced construction to bring on a now
election. Section 151 declares that th«
only evidence of a refusal to accept or of
a resignation of flit* office of President or
Vice President shall be an instrument in
writing declaring the same andsubscribed
by the person refusing to accept or re
signing, as the case may be, and delivered
into the office of the Secretary of State.
It is suggested that both the candidates
might be induced to "refuse to accept,"
and thus bring on a new election. But
it is objected, very reasonably, that tho
law applies only to a President really
elected, and not to a case where the re
sult is in dispute,
What strikes observers as odd is that
the republicans who suggest these dif
ferent method« of settlement never men
tion the twenty,second joint rule, which
was adopted by them and under which
they very cont»*ndedly worked so long
as suited their party purposes. They do
not even mention {Senator Morton's sub
stitute for the twenty-second rule, which
he advocated so vigorously last March
was adopted bv the Senate
the 24th of that month, almost every re
publican Senator voting for it, including
Messrs. Ferry, Frelingliuysen, Mitchell,
Morton, Patterson, Sargent , Sherman
and Spencer. Mr. Morton's bill was
thus adopted by the republican Senators
after a protracted session, in which all
its provisions were supported and de
fended by Mr. Morton and other promi
it .«publicans, who seem now to have
jrly forgotten both what they urgeil

of the Senators who were zealous for its
adoption last March now takes the least

ported to assert that it is a bad measure,

»SOMETHING ABOUT PEANUTS.
Peanuts, or, as they are commonly call
ed in the »South, ground-nuts or goubers,
grow in the ground on the roots of the
plants, exactly like potatoes. The stalk
and leaves of the plant somewhat resem
ble clover, ami to get the nut when ripe
the plants are pulled out of the ground,
the nut adhering lirinly to the roots. The
greatest trouble) witn the ground-nuts L«
in picking them, which has to be done
by the hand,
been invented to do the work, though it
would seem as if such a machine, in the
shape of a course comb, might be easily
invented. But labor is cheap in the places
where they are gi own, which are in the
light sandy soils of Tennessee, Virginia,
and North Carolina, in this country.
Peanuts are alsjo largely grows in Africa,
India, Brazil, and other places. The
best are raised in the valley of the river
Gambia, in Africa, and yield large quan
tities of oil. This product when proper
ly produced, is esteemed equal to olive
oil; but it is also used in woolen manu
facturas, in soap-making, in lamps, and
for lubricating machinery.
Last year the crop in the United StateN
was as follows: Tennessee, 235,000 bush
els; Virginia, 450,000; North Carolina,
100,000. The imports from Africa last
year were 840,()00 bushels, of which Bos
ton imported 38,000, and New York 23,
000. The average of the new crop this
year is somewhat larger than that of last
year, and the yield promises well, tho nut
being generally better tilled and matured
than for the past two years, and of better
quality. The past year was marked by
fewer changes than
moderate but a steady consumptive de
mand; by an absence of speculation, and
by the small proportiou of choice white
nuts. Tennessee peanuts are put up in
burlap bags of four or live bushels capaci
ty, and are sold by the pound, the grades
being, respectively, inferior, prime, choice
and fancy. The crop year begins Octo
ber 1 and ends September 30 of the en
suing year. The new crop will come
forward under very favorable auspices.

THE KH EDI VE\S AMERICAN OF
FICERS.
Gen McClelland says in Scribner, that,
when one of the Khedive's American of
ficers had been some months in Egypt the
Khedive sent fyr him one day and asked
wliat was the Worst tiling ho had observed
in regard to the army. He replied that
it was that the regiments were comman
ded by civilians. The Khedive said: "Nt»
there is a colonel for every regiment."—
"Yes," said tluf American; "but each col
onel, chief of a battalion, and captain has
a civilian clerk, w ho controls everything
relating to pay, rations anil clothing ol
the men, and w hoever does that really
commands." <'You are right," said the
Khedive; "but how would you correct
this? ' "By requiring that the colonels
should have sergeants as their clerks; the
chiefs of battalions, corporals: the cap
tains, private soldiers; and also requiring
that the officers should supervise and do
much of the real work themselves." »'That
means that the army should learn reading
writing, and arithmetic!" "That is exactly
what 1 was coming at, your Highness."
The Khedive reflected for a moment, and
then at once wirote an order to the Minis
ter of war, requiring that fron that mom
ent no person in the army (either officer
or soldier) should be promoted until L«
was master of reading, writing, and arith
metic. The consequence was that the.
whole army immediately became a school.
