Louis Franke, tho Roprosontativo of Faj'otte county iu tho Logisla- turo, strikos torror to ovory honest and courageous heart in our land. Nothing has occured in our State, in all its varied and bloody history, which is bo porfoctly identified with horror as this torriblo murderi and not a broalh of our pooplo will go forth that does not bear with it a prayer to God for tho arrest and exocution of tho lawless ruffians who so untimely cut off tho life of ono who had been choson by his coiiBtituoncy to fight for thorn the contoat of good govornmont against mongrel machinery. Tho manner of his dontli sends tho blood to ovory honest heart chillod with the just indignation which such occur rences always excite. Thoro is no word in our lauguago that is so full of awful meaning, so productive of I , f 1 - - 1 A nori'iuio suiiBiuiuiis, unu so cuicutiu cd to terrify, and, at tho same in etnnt, sickon with 1'uintnesj and four the mind and heart as assassin. The vory presence of one in nny community, who can vail by night the socrot movements of his thirsty blade when dirocted against tho life and boing of an unsuspecting vie tim, must cause men to shudder, oven in thofacied security which tho law extends to "lifo, liberty and tho pursuit of happiness." Assassinatod, how awful that death which comes upon us when wo expect it not, from a hand un scon and un fen rod until tho fatal thrust has performed its work. Tho concentrated contempt ot a whole pooplo gives no sorrow or regret to the bonstly hoart which directs tho assassin's missile, for he is the enemy of mankind and holds the dagger at tierce point against the wholo of the human ruce. To such men socioty owes but ono thing " a short rope and a long Bhrift. Let us hope that iu this instauco that dobt will bo paid to those who have turned loose in our Statd, within the portals of our Capital tho demon . of death, and dirocted its attack against one who was un offending, and unsuspecting tho awful doom which awaited him in t ho terrible momont whon tho shad ows of unonding sleop fell over him. BgX.The following opinions, rola tivo to tho contagion of emall-pox and the period at whfch it is most infectious, hw boon collected from th best modical authority, by a friend, and wo give thorn a pluco in our columns most cboerfully, bo lieving that the public can not un. derstand too much of tho torriblo consequences of the disoaso, and of the best moans to avoid its attack DR. WATSON SATIS There is no contagion strong and esters as that of small-pot ; none that operates at so great a distance. DR. HAOQARTK BATS ! That during bis long attention to this sub joot, not a single instance bad ocourred to prove that persons liable to small pox could associate in lueeame cuamner wun a patient in the distemper, without re eeiviug the Infection. It is readily oom municablo in every way; by inooulalion, by breathing a oontamiumel atm espuere, by the contact or vicinity of formites, nay, it may be caught from the dead body. Mr. Cmsar Hawkins has related an inter esting example of this. dr. wood says: Opinion Is not settled as to tb period of the dirense at wlucn It Is contagious some believe it to be only after the com monoement of supurations, while others, with greater prudence, oonsider it as cap able of self propagation at any period after the establishment of the fever. It is certain that the body retains tbe "power of propagating the disease after death, (aa cording lo Mr. Hawkins) for a period at least ten or twelve day even without con tact. dr. flint bats Th disease la generally supposed, to be oommunioatable man it stagoa, but un doubledly it is most highly so during the stages of supuration and desiccation. - 'DR.

POSTAL, The postal revenues last year are set down at $8,854,000 on letters, on newtipap- are nn.l nuvirulinala tOUr. Oil I 3: pears that tb revenue from letter wa twenty times as great as that for th news papers, while the newspaper mails were twenty times the weight and bulk of the letter mails. In 1870 there were eight hundred rail. lion copies of daily Journals, an averts o-a of over two and a half millbru a day; of weekly papora six hundred millions of copies, or un averago of over clovon and a half million conies per week; of monthly periodicals ou hundred uiilliou oopies, or an average or over eight aud a thud mil lions per month. Tho lowest rate of postage on these ptiblioalions was: Ou dailies, oue dollar and twenty cents a year; ou weeklies twenty ceuts; aud ou niuutuhes, twelve cents- Mr. Farnsworth, of Illinois, stated it as his opinion, in a late speeeh, that ton Der oent. of the dailies and eighty per cent of I lie weeklies aud monthlies were carried through the mails. If this esliruute isoor- i cot, aud upostnge bad been colleotod oo these publications, it is evident that it should bnve yielded a total revenue of $2,Ub:),U15. 'ibe aotuul receipts, however, were only $985,040. We are a little afraid of the policy of a total abolition of the frnuk in g privilege, and charging postage on newepaper ex ch'uuges. Congress oan doubtless improve the postal business ; but it should oonsider long before consenting to adjourn with the reputnliou of having attempted, In a spasm of virtue, to oover up the Credit Mobiliet sin by a multitude of interior eaoes with popular accommodation by the mails. It is nothing to boast of now, and tnuoh cutting at the cheapness or freeness ot the transition of books, periodicals and nowspnpers by the mails, ouuld not, we innik, be made pleasant or profitable, even by the passage of the bill for pro mo ling national education. Houston Unon. Cuda. Mr. Henderson, Ibe oorrespon dent of Ibe New York Herald, baa increas ed public interest in the anairs of Cuba Mr. llcndnrson gave it as his candid opin ion that if the patriots were supplied with arms tbey could soon win their indepeud ence. He gave facts to show that it will be Impossible for opain to regain an un disputed control of the Island. It is now rumored from Washington that Brasil, Chili and Mexico are ready to intervene in behalf of the Cubans, if the United Htales will only give tbcm a pledge of neutrality. Nothing is more probable than that the nations of South American, which have not furgotlou the rigor of opnnish oolo nial, rule, will Intervene In favor of ibeir oppressed struggling brethren In tho "(Jem of the Antilles. ' It is also rumored from Washington that the tjpaniau Lega tion tlioie biiB reoeutly received informa tion from tho home government tlntt it will be necessary , lo recall the troops from Cuba to help repress revolutionary in surrection in the l euinsula. m e When James Flak was In the tenitb of his fame and poised on a plnnaole of wealth from which it then soemed that no power could ever throw him, old T- was on very friendly torma with Prince Erie, and frequently formed one of a party of mijfionaires at ,Jho prinoely entertain ments given by r'lsk. Ono of these was given on board of the magnificent Ply mouth Hock, which was then new from the ship-yard. Col. Fisk was showing T through the boat, pointing out ber beauties, and expatiating upon her speed, eto. All at once he stepped before two full-fledged portraits, the one of Jay Uould and the other of Fisk. Old T ad mired them, as in duty bound, but at length asked t "Wb-wh-where's the Savior 7" "What have Gould and 1 got to do with Uim7" replied t isk. I I me-mo-meant lb-the oruoi-fi-oation, you know." Fisk wa more puzzled than ever, but seeing tbe merry twinkle in T s eye, be knew that a joke wai oomirg, aud ao oordingly asked : 'What do you mean 7" 'We-we-well, you know, tho Bl-bi-bible says Cb-oh-christ was oru-oru-orucifled betwen two th-th-tbievesl" Fisk often told this story with great gusto A Musical Bibd A good story ie told of a tame owl lo fond of musio that he would enter the drawing room of an even lng, and, parched on the shoulder of one of the children, listen with gceat atten tion to the tones of the poano forte, hold ing bis bead first on one side, then on the other, after the manner of connoisseurs. One night, suddenly spreading his wings, a if unable to endure his rapture any longer, he alighted on the keys, and, driv away tb fingers of the performer with bh beak, began to hop about upon th key himself, apparently In great delight with bis own execution A California man tied one end of a la rial around his waist and lassoed a oow with the other.

What will be the prohibit expense of this little Modoo war, that is now going on near the Pacific) oooan? Oregon and California are furnishing volunteers, fur which a bill of expause will be rendered. Our whole available foroe in that vicinity has been brought into requisition. The eest of transporting and sustaining even ' in is nine army will be round a pretty for midable little affair by the time it is fig ured up, Hut thus far th Indians have Ihe best of the fight, and fori v of our brave boy were compelled to bit th dust In tb last confliot, an aooount of which ap. , peared in yesterday' Chronlole. Many were slain la tbe previous oonflicts during th few week that this warhas been going on. More troops are needed, Tbisreoun noissanoo in fore does not seem to have dislodged or seriously disturbed the little tribe engaged in tb fight. As a oonse- quenee our troops drew o!f,nd re-enforo. ments bave been called for. We are in a fair way ono. more to real- ite the comparative merit of feeding and Dgliiug th Indiana, and the bearing of tne experiment upon tbe Treasury, to say nothiug of the lives sacrificed. We shall be greatly surprised if it doe not prove, befora we get through with this oonUiot, that there was a bolter method than tbe one adopted to get these Indian out of our way. In their fastnesses they can not be tracked or followed by any force that oan operate to advantage. Captain Jack understood these mots, and it seems a if our people ought to have foreseen ihem. ntulunjton Chronicle. Indian Captives- Tb Austin Journal says: We were shown yesterday the photograph of two boys, recovered rrotn ludtan captivity by General McKeniie, at tbe time of hi re cent victory ovor tho Indians. One of the boys line been recognised as Temple Friend tbe son of Mr. John Friend, now of Eldo rado, Kausas. He was taken at tbe Piano Massacre, some four or five year ago, In which three women were killed, and th step-mother of this boy wounded and scalped, but tbe latter recovered. When retaken tbe buy seemed to remember notb- . lng of bis early childhood, but he was loon able to recall and give a satisfactory ac count of his oapture, and of the manner In nhiob the Indians esoaped from th oouutry after their raid. Mr. Leonard 3. rrlond, his grandfather, (pent above fly thousand dollars sino th boy was car- , ried ou lo etlool bi rescue, and bad given up all hope of ever fiudiug hltn. The other boy has not been olalined by hi relatives, nor are thoy known, aud anybody who ha had a boy about six or seven year old capturad by Indians within the last four or live years, may proeve a photograph of this uuolaiuted lad, free of charge, by communicating -with Mr. W. M. Oilleland, or ibis oity, to aid recognition,""" , . - A Novkl Project A proposition is be-. fore the Virginia Legislature, said to be ' backed by ex-Uoveruor Wise, to monopo lize tbe insurance business for tbe benefit of the State, by organising what it i pro posed to oan tbe "Insurance Uureau of Virginia."
