OUR OITIZEN SOLDI.IB.
In imes of peae s an eoeedlngly d41i
mlt matter to mask the average Amerloan
ditian appreiate the Importance of mai-l
tainag an eolieat militia force. Wrapped
up in the eager purault of the almlghty dol
lar, he is apt to think of the militia, if he
thinks of itt al, as a sort of ornametal
appendage to soiety, and as only useful for
purposes of parades. e has been n the army
perhaps and feels a certain sort of pride In
sen the various commads well ulformed
lmd drilled when they do turn out, and does
not hesitate to Indulge In caustic oritidem If
the Itarehtng and manoeuvr ae detective;
but t never oears to him that he has any
direct personal interet In the matter, and
the suggestion that he ought to put hie hand
n hie pooket andsubeeribe money for enour
aglng the entlemena nthe maitia topersevere
itheir effortstomalntant helr orglani.aton
and to perect themselves In dislpitne and
drill would almost be regarded as an eliront.
And yet that 1 precisely what he would do
It he had any ustreqtlnothe services
rendered by? the mlitld or entertained a
eorreo ideaof the Importance to society at
large aota Well disciplined force, ready it all
times to at in the Iterest of peace and order,
without which he would suddenly be com
pelled to cease his pursuit of fortune and
shoulder a musket himself to defend his
rights, his property and his lit.
We ar proud of our militia and independ
et military commands, and the gentlemen
who compose them and who have, under the
most adverse and trying circumstances,
maintained their organstations in a high
state of dlllne and drill, deserve the
grateful thanks of every citizen of New Or
leans and the 8tate for their seif-macrtflong
devotion to a self-imposed duty. They have
not only given their time, endured fatigue
and exposed their lives, whenever called
upon, but have expended large sums
of money for the public good,
all without any hoped a reward other than
that which springs from a conselousnese of
duty well performed. :These cltizen soldiers,
who are the true onservators of the peace of
the State, and without whom It would be
manifestly imposeible to secure the proper
enforcement of the lasw, who a a constant
memae to evildtper, and who are the State's
best and surest rellanee l time of civil com
motion, merit the respettful consaderation,
not slone the Legislature which Ls therep
resmntitve of the people at large, but aleo of
those Individual citizns whose Interests In
maintaining socal order are large and who
would therefore be mosteeously affected by
tumult and disorder.
We beerve that in Nashville the other day
the management o the Centennial Exposi
ton appropriated the handeome sum of $2500
to be awarded8 to competitive military com
panles, $1000 beln.otredas a prize to the
best drilled .nfantry company, $500 to the
second best and the balance between artillery

'that t would be a proper and grateful thing
for somof our oltises to raise a handsome

meritorious command. It would see to
show the gentlemen composing It that their
servioes In the paut had not been forgotten,
and would spur them to a generous rivalry
which would result in enhancing the drill of
the entire battalion.
The Legislature will, we earnestly hope,'
make some reasonable provision for the whole
militia force, but this should not deter our
cltlsens, who have large Interests at stake,
and who asecognllsnt of the valuable sero
'vies rendered by the citisen soldiery In time.
of d anger, oom giving personal encourage
meat to the arlous commands In the way of
offering primes for the best drilled companies.
The Mtate is just now happily at peace, govu
erned by her own qhosen rulers and dreading
no Lltetference in her domnestloitaffairsupon
the part of the federal government, but we
should not forget the time when our people
were under the heel of a detestable usurpa
tion,and whleh was only overthrown by the
valor and patriotli devotion of our oltien
soldiery who, with a daring rarely equaled Ln
the anals of warfare, met and vanquished the
.Itsorf ellbogg in a most unequal struggle.
Our milltia are not mere holiday soldier,
but have on many notable oosilons given
evidence of their dotton to the State. Let
us, both through the Legislature and by In
dividual etabrb, give every encouragement to
the men who have never faltered when called
upon, and who, whether In peaeeful or In
troublous times, hate always done their full
duty toward the people of the calty nd State.
The bill which pas. ed the Senate on the
subjeot of judicial p, . ting, and which por
vide that all such printing shal be done in
the ofclal journal of the State, is ono upon
which there has bern much excited disros
sion, both In the Legislature and in the pres.
The DatoaraT took early occasion to define
its position bn the matter and to express the
hope that the proposed measure would not
be come a law, not because we did not believe
there was much force in the arguments ad
vanoed by the advoaostes of the bill, but be
cause It was opposed to a traditional senti
ment of the party and might be regarded as
an Interference with the individual rights of
the parties most in interest. We did not join
In the clamor and denunciation Indulged In
by the pres of the city generally, because
we knew that the Senators who favored the
bill were acting from a high and conscien
tious sense of duty, and because we recog
nsled the very great advantage It would be
to a large number oi persons to have the
udticial advertlsemeat p nted in someone
paper instead of scattered inin may.
It appears tous to be as of those cases in
which If the people most nesrly gopcerned
those who blhe topay their money for adver
ting-do not demand a ohangde the PKehat
law a hould be permitted to stand. Itisbet
ter, perhaps, that a foolish or even an unjust
law g hould remain on the statute books than
that It should be changed againstthe wishes
or without the approbation or the people who
ae safteoid by it. The right to submit
quietly to Imposition, it we so eleqt,may be
regarded as not the least saored of the rights
and privileges bequeathed to us by the found
ers of the government, and we, recognizing
that right, and hearing no remonstrance
from the people, such as they would uoques
tlonably make if they were conscious
of being Imposed upon, believe
that the Senate bill should not
pass the House, where It must soon come up
for discussion. Aside from other objections,
the clause providing that the printing of Ju
dioial advertisements in the papers in the par
ishes shall be done at the same rates charged
by them for parochial printing is mant
festly unjust. The parohial printing, as we
lear, is almost always done for an uuremu
nerative price, and frequently gratis, so that
the absurdity of the provision Is manifest at
a glance, and would appear to be an unfair
discrimination against the country papers.
All things considered, it 1s, perhaps, as well
that the consideration of the bill be Indefi
nttely postponed and the present law on the
subject be permitted to remain unchanged.
This course wllssult the DmaxooAT, which
has been actuated throughout in this matter
by purely disinterested motives, while the
Times and Pic. have writhed in anguish over
the possible loss of advertisements. The
frantic opposition of these journals sprang
from purely interested motives, while the
DR.msoAT was only anxlous that the best
nterest~ of the people should be subserved,
regardless of which paper should be the
gainer by the change, if change there was to
THE BRAsILIAN EXPOSITION.
A telegram has been received by Mr.
Hopper, resident director of the Brazil Ex

Janeiro, conveying the gratifying intelli
genes that the Emperor Dom Pedro, with his
usual enterprise and public spirit, has oeded
his palace in the city of. Rio de Janelro for
twenty-five years, to be used as the exposi
tion building. It is descorbed as an old but
very massive structure, well adapted to the
purpose, both in looation and interior ar
rangements. It is located In the business
centre of the city, fronting on the water and
close to the railway depot, and the square on
which it stands is said to be, of about the
dimensions of the grounds surrounding the
White House at Washington. The facilities
afforded to American mannfacturers and
merchants to brlwngthelr goods to the notice
of the trade and people of Brazil are superior
to those enjoyed by any other country. The
reesdet director will detray transportation
expenses on all articles Intended for the ex

enterprise to open up trade with Brazil, and
Congress will greatly aid this movement by

Patte'ron, of Philadelphia. who is said to be the

enactment of such a bill as the one Introduced

to the cotton manuhactnrers themselves, as the

Senator Johnston. of Virginia. has recently
introduced a bill to create a "National Board of
orom misaloners for the suppressilon of infeo.
tious and contagious diseases of domestioated

misstoner of Agriculture, the soeretary of the
Treasury, and the Seoretary of State. The
Commissioner of Agriculture is to be president
of the board and is to call all its meetings, and
i4 to reeive for bis sarvices) 9ooper year. A
leterineart srgeone, ttointed by the board, is
to superintend all measures for the suppres
sion of disease, and make the rules and reeu

the Governor of the State where the disese
prevails, and if they are asooepted the board is
to buy and kill all the disesed or infeoted
animals in the State. To carry out the provi

proclamation the importation of cattle from
neighboring States, when disease prevails in
the latter, and all articlees n a fresh state, ex

fail to adopt this supplemental act within two

arms, including the United 8ates Springfield

Investigated by the House Committee on
Patents. The committee were informed by the
chief of ordinance, according to their report
that Morse was undoubtedly a pioneer in the
improvement mentioned, and by the reports of
the patent office that Morse invented all the
essential features of the modern breech-load
ing system. In order to prevent others from
improperly seenring daauges from the United
States and on the ground that Morse has not re
ceived proper renumeratlon for his inventions,
none of his patents having been reissued, a bill
has been introduced in the House authoring
and requiring the commisalsioner of patents to
issue new patents to Morse, covering his claims.
to run for eight years. Morse is also to be al

which he invented for the application of his
system to the old arms of the government
BAxn TAXATION IN Nsw Toa.
A special committee of the New York Bank
Clearing-House have been considering the
matter of the taxation of national banks and
the questions growing out of the re
t declsions of the United States
tre~m Court. It was held by some of the
bank omoers that the declaration that the tate
lawnef eis is void and inoperative may apply
only to the national banks. The State banks.
being erested by the tate. it was argued, can
still be taxed by the authorities of the State.
The question whether the State banks will re
oaive the benefit of the exemption accorded to
the national banks is one of great importance.
The special law of le55, whioh has been de
clared unconstitutional by the decision of the
Supreme Court, has drawn into the treasury of
the city of New York during the past fourteen
years an average of $1,00,000o per annum
from the banks. Banks were. before
iss. taxed like other corporations, on
their capital paid in or secured, but this
practice was - declared void by the Supreme
Court on the ground that it levied a tax on
the property of a bank. which property, in
wholeor in part. consisted of stocks of the Fed
eral government, After this decision theLedis
lature enacted another law for the taxation of
banks. the'main provision of which compelled
the stookholders to pa a tax on the value of
their shares, to be included in the valuation of
their personal property.
The choice some people make of mat
