act. We have taken occasion before
to refer to the organization, tho person
nel, and the manner of operation of the
National Life Insurance Cimpanr of
America, which is advertised in our
columns. The great success of the
Company, aa demonstrated from month
to month, warrants repeated allusion
to its peculiar features. We learn that
np to the first of May a period of but
nine month from its organization
this Company had issued not less than
five thousand policies, alihopgli Its sys
tem of agencies was far from complete.
A is generally known, the Company
ha authority from Congress to do bus
iness in auy State of the Union. It
has now agents actively nt work upon
the Pacific Coatit, and by the expira
tion of its first year, it will have cover
ed nearly, if not all, our own country,
as well aa the Dominion of Canada.
Those facts show that the plau upon
which the Company does business com
mends itself to popular favor. There
is good reusou liy this should be so.
The rates of tho Company are low; it
avoids all complications or uncertain
ties of notes or dividends; when tho
insured pnjs Lih money he knows to a
cent how much that pajmtnt will se
cure to his wife or children; aud when
his death does come, they suffer no dis
appointment by the presentation of un
suspected uotcs, which are to lie deduc
ted from (ho face of tho policy. Thus,
when, a few weeks ego, the ngent of
thi Company at Franklin, Pa., paid
$1,000 to the family of a laboring man
who hud insured for that amount but
six weeks previous, the prompiludo of
the Company and the simplicity of the
transaction were so apparent that in
surance to the amount of $2'.,000 was
immediately effected by the neighbors
of Ihe deceased. Another caso has
beeu repotted, where $o,0()0 was paid
on tliu first of April to tho family of
Rev. Lumbcrt S. Fine, of Troy, Pa.,
w ho died ou the 5th of March, and who
had insured for the above amount in
December last. The manager of the
Naliouitl Life aie ccutlemen of widely
known and Ijibly-uouorcd teputaion

respect in their several localities. Ev

and honorable career for the National
Life Inau ranee Company, aud we com
mend to the attention of our reader the
card of the local agency, wbi:h will lie

Thursday, Gov. McCormick, Delegate
from Arizona, had a parting interview
with the President and Secretaries of
War aud Interior, relativo lo Indian
Agents for his territory, and learned
definitely that it was the President's
settled purposo to employ army officers
there iu all three capacities of Super
intendents, General Agents and Spec
ial Agents, to the e xclusion of all resi

the Governor hi:3 been interesting him

which have unavoidably Buffered neg

formerly represented the New York
Evening Post in Washington.
The traveling Gov. McCormick has
to do to get to his sent iu Congress, is
at once a striking illustration of the
vustuess of our country and ou impres
sive argument in favor of tho removal
of the rational capital. From the cap
ital of tho Territory, Tucson, he jour
ney iu his private carriage, neariy GOO
miles duo west, to tho nearest port on
tho Pacific. There he takes a ateamer,
and goes GOO miles more up tho coast
to Sau Fraucisca. Aud this poiut gain

has been via Puuama. Tho shortest
practicable line from Tucson to any
point ou the present Pacific road is 800
In our immediate, neighborhood, have
beeu going ou for several days without,
apparently, in the least disturbing the
general lethargy into which the Capital
has fallen since the departure of Sena
tor and Representatives and their num
erous office-seeking constituents. It
reminds mo of " a fight quietly preced
ing in the corner of a room," at a dem
ocratic meeting in Tammany Hall, many
years ago, as described by biave, hon
