ffantm. L. B. FERG TISON, Editor. Bridgeton, N. J., May 29th, 1874. THE "CIVIL RIGHTS” BILL. The Civil Rights bill, prepared a long time before the death of Hon. Clias. Sum ner, by the deceased, has, at last, passed the Senate of the United States. It is sweep ing in its provisions, and its language is un equivocal. Whatever may be its effects and influence on the status of the two ra ces, one thing is inevitable, it can never al lay the hostility which has always existed against the idea of social equality. So far as rendering the colored race "equal before the law” with the whites, is concerned, the objection was mainly abandoned within a year subsequent to the passage of the act to enforce the “Fifteenth Amendment.” But this bill goes much farther than that. It provides that "all citizens and other per sons within the jurisdiction of the United States shall be entitled to the full and equal enjoyment of the accommodations, advan tages, facilities and privileges of inns, pub lic conveyances on land or water, theatres or other places of public amusement, and also of common schools and public institu tions of learning or benevolence, supported in whole or part by general taxation,” &c. This language is explicit.—it needs no ex planation. The fourth section declares, “That no citizen, possessing all other qual ifications which are or may be provided by law, shall be disqualified for service as grand or petit juror in auy court of the United States, or any State, on account of race, color or previous condition of servitude; and any officer or other person cnargea i with any duty in the selection or summon ing of jurors who shall exclude or fail to summon any citizen for the cause aforesaid, shall, on conviction thereof, be deemed guil ty of misdemeanor, and be fined not more than one thousand dollars.” This section is compulsory. Under it every sheriff is compelled to summon for grand and petit jurors, more or less, colored persons. The previous law made them competent “as ju rors”—this declares that they shall be sum moned as such. The whole bill is a bold one. Time will test the wisdom of its pro visions. It has yet to pass the House. SUPERSTITION AT WORK. In Mexico, recently, an event took place which shows that even in this enlightened age, superstition in the belief of “witch craft” has not entirely passed away. On the 4th of April last, in the city of Mexico, it is stated that Gen. Castilla, Alcalde of Ja coba, in the State of Sinaloa, had been of ficially reported to the Prefect of his dis trict as having arrested, tried, convicted and burned alive, Jose Maria Bonnilla, and his wife, for the alleged practice of sorcery. It is stated that they had bewitched a citi zen named Sylvestre Zacarias. And this is the singular test applieu to prove the sorcery: The day before the execution was to take place, one Porras, compelled Zacar ias to take three swallows of “blessed wa ter,” whereupon the “victim vomited frag ments of blankets and bunches of hay.” The Alcalde excuses the burning of these wretched beings on the ground that the people were exasperated against them as sorcerers, and demanded that they should be burned; the sentence was executed with his approval, and he asserts that he “has his eye on other sorcerers against whom com plaints have been made by citizens.” It is almost incredible that such superstitions should be tolerated in communities profes sing to be Christians, to such an extent as to cause the execution of any one on such charges. BIBLE SOCIETY ANNIVERSARY. The Cumberland County Bible Society held its 60th Anniversary on Tuesday last, in the Second Presbyterian Church of this city. The venerable President, Hon. L. Q. C. Elmer, took the chair at 3 o’clock, p. m. The report of the Managers was present ed by Rev. J. Allen Maxwell, and that with the Treasurer’s report was approved and ordered published: Dr. S. B. Jones conducted the services, and Rev. C. S. Vancleve preached from Prov. 14: 34. Rev. Dr. Pearoe, delegate from Salem County Bible Society, was in troduced, and made very appropriate re marks, to which the President feelingly re _ “I'” Tbe evening service was opened by pray er, which was followed by an interesting address from the President on the evidences of the truth of the Bible as the word of God. Rev. Mr. Clare of the Lutheran Church, followed with a carefully prepared and scholarly production, which did him credit. Dr. Sheldon then gave an exceed ingly interesting history of the work of the m Society in this state for the last twenty-five years. This meeting of the Society, was one of the most profitable and well attended of any for the past ten years. The Peach Prospect.—Within the last two weeks, a species of black bug has ap peared in countless numbers in tbe peach orchards near Denton, Caroline County, Md., and has done serious damage in that locality. In one nursery the grafted stock of 83,(XX) trees were entirely killed. The insect is even capable of destroying large trees, as it thickly covers the leaves and prevents vegetation. None of the ordinary means of destroying insects seems to avail, as this scourge is very tenacious of life, and a liquid application that will kill the trees does not effect it. It resembles the rose bug, and is regarded by entomologists as a similar pest to the cherry achid. Thus far, no serious damage has been done to fruit bearing orchards, though the presence of the bug is reported in peach districts about Middleton. Specimens of the insect will be sent to the Department of Agriculture at Washington. On Saturday evening last, Julius L. Shu man, a member of the last session of the Pennsylvania Legislature, was shot at Lan caster, Pa. The deed was performed by a young man, JacobWitmer, one of his neigh bors, who was in a state of intoxication, and Wrangling with his wife. Mr. Sbtrman re monstrated with Witmer, which infuriated him, and he fired upou Shuman with a pistol. Medical attendance «as summoned, but it was impossible to find the ball. On Sunday, Mr. Shuman seemed much better, but has since died, leaving a wife and one child.— Witmer was arrested, and although but $500 bail was demanded, no one was willing to assume it, and be was consigned to jail. Decoration Day—Next Saturday is tbe day designated by authority for the purpose of decorating with flowers, tbe graves of oar soldiers who fell during the late rebel lion, Mid arrangements have been made all over the country to oarry out the design. On Tuesday evening of next week, a Fair and Festival will be held at Greenwich in tbe Baptist Church. At Cedarville, a Fes tival in the 3d Presbyterian ehuroh, will be u progress on tbe 12tb and litb of Ju»e. WEDDING AT THE WHITE HOUSE. The absorbing event at Washington on Thursday of last week, was the marriage ol Mi6s Grant to Mr. Bartoris, which took place at 11 o’clock, in the East Room ol the Executive Mausion, the Rev. Dr. Tiffa ny, of the Metropolitan Methodist Episcopal Church, officiating. The bridal party passing through the Blue Room, entered the East Room, and their presence immediatly hushed the com pany to silence. Their approach was an nounced by music from the Marine Band. First came Mr. Bartoris and Colonel Frederick D. Grant, the only groomsman; next the bridesmaids, two by two, the President and Miss Grant, and Mrs. Grant and her two sons, Ulysses and Jesse.— These were followed by relatives of the family. On reaching the platform the President transferred his daughter to Mr. Bartoris, who, with the bride, ascended the platform, where the officiating minister was in wait ing to receive them, and they took their position under the floral wedding bell. All things being in readiness, the Rev. Dr. Tiffany pioeeeded with the ceremony, according to the form of the Methodist Episcopal Church. The band played the Wedding March at the conclusion of the ceremony. Seventy carriages conveyed the guests to the Exe cutive Mansion. Less than two hundred persons were present. Among the most costly gifts was a dessert set of eighty-four silver pieces, by George W. Childs, and a complete silver dinner set, by A. J. Drexel, of Philadelphia, the com bined value of them being probably $4500; Secretary Fish, a large silver tankard; Gen eral and Mrs. Sharpe, of New York, a ring with stone cameo set with diamonds; Post master-Geueral Creswell, a very handsome silver ice-cream service; Ex-Senator Cattell, a diamond ring, fine stones; L. P. Morton, of New York, and emerald and diamond ring—these two rings are probably worth $1000 each; Secretary Robeson, a toilet set and side pieces, brass, elaborately finished of the style of Louis XIV; A. T. Stewart, of New York, the largest size lace pocket handkerchief, such as sell for $500; Gener al Babcock, an elegant Valenciennes lace fan, with smoked pearl frame, with the monogram of the bride in gold. Mr. Sar toris presented his bride a large and choice collection of flowers, the present of the father of the bride is $10,000. At 1.45 P. M. the bride and groom left Washington in a special train for Now York. On Friday the President and Mrs. Grant went, to New York to take leave of their daughter on her embarkation for England. WASHINGTON. May 23d. — The House Committee on the Judiciary had the Civil Rights bill under consideration to-day. They agreed to a clause extending to the blacks all the privi leges of school enjoyed by whites; in other words, “mixed schools.” The Honse of Representatives heretofore passed a bill requesting the President to ex tend in the name of the United States, a respectful and cordial invitation to the Gov ernments of other nations to be represented and take part in the International Exposi tion, to be held in Philadelphia, under the auspices of the Government of the United States in 1876. This bill was reported back to-day from the Senate Committee on Ap propriations with the following proviso: “That the United Srates shall not be lia ble directly or indirectly for any expense at tending the Exposition, or by reason of the same.” Senate. May 26.—Mr. Hamilton (Texas) called up his bill to provide for the better protection of the frontier settlements of Texas against Indian and Mexican depredations. Passed. Senate. May 27.—Mr. Morrill (Vt.), from the Com mittee on Public Buildings and Grounds, reported a bill to establish a commission to regulate steam railway track aud horse rail roads in the City of Wasliugton. Placed on the calendar. Mr. Sargent (Cal.), from the Committee on Naval Affairs, reported favorably on the bill intioduced by him a few days ago to prevent “hazing” at the Naval Academy. Passed. House. Mr. Butler reported a bill to provide for deductions from the terms of sentences of United States prisoners live days for each calendar month of good conduct. Passed. In the pleasant borough of Washington, Warren county, N. J., lives Mrs. Isabella Moore, a colored women born in 1770, on the 20th of February, and who is, conse quently, 104 years old. She is hale and hearty, and talks of occurrences that trans pired a century ago, glibly. She was born a few miles above the Water Gap in Penn sylvania, a free woman, and the records of Stroudsburg show' that she was “bound out” to John Chambers in 1778, to serve to 1788, when she would be eighteen years old. Her maiden name was Isabella Harkless, and she married Abram Moore, a slave, in 1788, and if she lives a few months more, will have been married eighty-six years, rearing the moderate size family of fourteen children. She has had one hundred and sixty-sixchil iren, grand-children, and great-grand-chil jren, more than one hundred of whom are now living. A traveler writes that nothing remains of the American colonly that went to the Holy Land several years ago, to reform the Turks and rebuild the Temple, but the site of the settlement. The German colony from Wurtemburg, which followed the Ameri can. was more practical and successful.— They number sixty families, and have con verted the waste land near Joppa into a garden, having hundreds of orange and lemon trees. A gentleman from Philadelphia has in contemplation the erection of a number of bathing houses on the river shore at Glou ccster City, for the purpose of affording to Philadelphians and others, cheap and easily accessible means of securing cleanliness in the absence of such conveniences nearer home. Bathing robes will be furnished, and the river at the point proposed is free from obstructions or danger. The iron trade throughout the country continues to be greatly depressed, and it is estimated that 175,000 men usually em ployed at rolling mills, furnaces, &c., are out of employment, in consequence of the paralization of the iron business. Over one thousand men were, a short time ago made idle by a partial suspension of the iron works at Troy alone, on account of tho de pression in the market. Bishop Janes says the specialty of the Round Lake camp meeting this Summer will be the presence of representatives of all the branches of Methodism in the Uni ted States and Canada. They will not meet to consider or discuss the question of organic union of these Methodist bodies, as the meeting will have no official author ity, but will come together simply for uni ted worship. Nearly two million dollars worth of man ufactured silk was imported into New York during April, most of which was in tended for immediate consumption. The values of the imports of raw silk at New York for the month ending April 30, was $398,837. and at San Francisco for the same period, $290,280—in both cases the highest figures reached during the past eight years. Manemcskin, N. J., May 20.—Mr. Car lisle and wife, residing about four miles from here, at a place called Leesburg, were struck by lightniug yesterday afternoon. The wife, Martha Carlisle, was instantly killed. The gentleman is still unconscious, but it is thought that he will recover. Gen. Bctler.—It is now announced that this indomitable and persevering gentle man, whose name is a “household word,” is to be honored with a mission to Austria, as Minister. If this be so and ho accept, it will cut short his aspiratious for the Gov ernorship of Massachusetts. There is more shipbuilding going on at the present time on the Connecticut river than in any previous year since 1861.— Every yard from Hartford to Saybrook has one, and some of them two or three vessels in process of construction. Private advioes from 8t. Petersburg re port a complete reconciliation to have taken place between the Czar and the Grand Duke Alexis, who have been long estranged on account of the latter's marriage beneath bis rank. urnirnii¥f- ; iTiriiM i.a ANNUAL STATEMENT.

Our bodies are not as vigorous nor our minds as clear as they might be. This remark is true of at least two thirds of civilized society, and of these i two-thirds probably one half is laboring under bod j ily infirmities of a character likely to shorten the lives of the sufferers. This is a melancholy exhibit ! and furnishes abundant food for reflection. Can the evil be mitigated ? It can. Lack of vitality is the primary cause of most of the physical and men tal suffering to which we are subjected, and there fore a vitalizing medicinal agent is the remedy re. quired. Is there such a medicine ? There is. Hos tetter’s Stomach Bitters will rouse and energize the mind and body when the life power of the system is in a comparatively dormant state. The languid, feeble, desponding invalid is not aware of the la tent energies that underlies hi-debility. He thinks there is no no element of vigor left in his frame, when the fact is that his physical capabilities aie merely asleep and only require waking up. Let him stimulate and tone his animal machinery and endow it with new motive power, through the agen cy of this incomparable fnvigorant, and he will soon feel like a new man, or lather like a man wno has received a new lease of life, and the requisite health to enjoy It. Many business men suffer from chronic languor and depression causid by too close application to business. Hard students are often oppressed with melancholy from a like cause. Me chanics and working men are affected in the same way as a result of over-labor. To all who are in this condition, from whatever cause, Hostetter’s Stomach Bitters will prove a signal blessing. It is ! a perfect panacea for physical debility and mental | gloom. It strengthens the body, clears the mind I and calms the nervous system; while as a remedy j for indigestion, billiousness. constipation, rheuma tism, and itermittent and remittent fevers, it takes I precedence of all other medicines. may Mm TOW Kit HALL 18 THE PLACE I FOB 1TOTTIR, CLOTHING! .
