GRAPHIC AND OTHER MATTER.
V Th? following is the official showing ot
the daily circulation of the papers named be
low, made tinder tbe call directed by the re
cent act of Congress:
Evemno Stab 7.715 copies per daj.
Intelligencer... 3.532 ?' ??
Tbe returns of advertising by the same city
papers for the quarter ending December 31,
1966. as taken from tbe books of the Internal
Revenue Office, are as follows:
EVBBIMQ Stab $13,107
Intelligencer 9,108
BI TTING THE SLEDGE nAMMER.
For years tbe Stab b&s been a standing sub
jeet ot unbappiness to tbe Intelligencer. Oar
neighbor bas very childishly attributed its
waning fortunes ti the overshadowing suc
cess of tbe Star, and day by day has uttered
querulous complaints that the business com
munity have not thrown away their money
in tbe bopeless effort to bolster op that fossil
concern, with its omnibus load of subscribers,
but have preferred to consult their own inter
ests by dealing with a live business paper like
tbe Stak, that reaches every family in the
District. This feeling ol jealousy and envy is
at tbe bottom of the continnal exhibitions of
bad temper by that paper towards us. We can
compare tbe attacks of tbe Intelligencer upon
tbe Stak, through a series of years, to nothing
bat tbe gallant but wearing light, recorded in
history, of tbe billy-goat upon the sledge-ham
mer. As the story goes, a plethoric old farmer,
exasperated by tbe treacherous rear attack upon
bim by a vicious billy-goat, hit upon a happy
idea to cure the animal of his bad habit, and
procuring a heavy sledge-hammer, he sus- 1
pended it by the limb of an apple-tree for tbe
goat to experiment upon. The billy sprang at
it with all his might, and the hammer re
bounding, returned tbe blow with interest
Tbe billy hit It again, and kept at it as bis
blood got botter, and his bead and horns grew
smaller, but he kept on hitting it till the old
man got tired, and thinking the billy would
bruise some discretion into his brains, went
home and left him The next morning, hap.
pening to think of the billy, he went out to
tbe orchard, and lo aad behold ! the biilv-goai
had worn himself all out but his tail, but that
tail was springing at the sledge as spitefully
as ever.
Year alter year the Intelligencer has butted
away at tbe Stab, under the stupid belief !
that it tbe Star were out of the way. then Its
rickety old machine would go on its course
rejoicing. Tbe Star has been damaged just
as little under the butting process, as was the
sledge, but the jioor old born* of our venera
ble neighbor have suffered some. It has tut
ted itself out irem its cozy old quarters, where
it had dozed for hundreds of years, quite across
Seventh street, and up to the fifth story of
Folkinkorn's building, but true to its inetiacts
It wiggles its stump, */ar-ward, through the
sky-light ol its garret with th? same vicious
animosity as when it first entered upon the
warfare. If the Intelligencer likes the exercise
it bas our free permission to go on with it in
definitely, or as long as tbe smmp holds out.
The Stak ha3 thrived amazingly under the
procees, as our advertising columns and sub
scription books fully demonstrate, and we can
bave no earthly objection to such endurable
"punishment."
THE NEW FENIAN SENSATION.
Rumors of preparations lor another grand
invasion of Canada by the Fenians are rife,
and tbey would be of a startling character if
experience had not proved that the promises
of the men who have had the management of
similar affairs heretofore, bave far outrun
tbeir performances. Sounding proclamations
have been succeeded by gross blunders, re
smlting sot only in a reckless squandering of
the funds collected from hard-working men
and women who have deprived themselves
of tbe necessaries of life in order to contribute
to the cause of Irish freedom, but in a wanten
?aerifies of life. Not only this, but designing
men are to-day living in luxury on the pro
ceeds of tbe money drawn from the pockets
of Irish men and women whose patriotic de
votion to Erin bas been used to rteece them.
Every lover of freedom must sympathise
With Ireland in her desperate struggles for
Independence, and we cannot but honor the
seeling which prompts the poorest of hersons
and daughters to make sacrifices for her sake:
but It is time that a note of warning should
be raised whenever the patriotism of Irish
men is likely to be so misdirected as not to
advance the cause they have at heart,
but te promote the schemes of selfish
men for their own aggrandizement.
We do not make any particular reference to
tbe raid talked of at present, further than to
caution Irishmen, to inform themselves wll
in regard to it before they venture their per
sons or property again. It only seems to us thai
if it was really formidable, tbe plan ot opera
tions would not be published to the world in
tbe newspapers,so as to put tbe Canadians and
che United States authorities on their guard.
Published accounts say that a movement to
ward organization and concentration is gene- j
ral throughout tbe northern and western por- ]
tioaofNew York and other States. A mes
senger bas twen despatched by tbe bead cir- i
cles to call the brothers to arms, and thirty 1
thousand men are to be concentrated on tbe
border within a month. Tbe commissariat is
said to be well served, and large sapplies of
army stores are already warehoused in tbe vi
cinity of St. Albans. Gen. Spear is to com
mand the invading army. The most minnte
particulars of time, place, and circumstances
are given. It is also said that Hon. JohnMor
rissey bas been at Troy, in conference with
the Feniap leaders, and, it is believed, bas
been authorized to assure them that tbe gov
ernment will not interfere witb tbeir enter
prise, of which we do not believe one word.
Examibbd?Tbe judiciary committee bad
before them to-day Mr. Robert Jobnson, tbe
President s private secretary. He was sum
moned to give evidence principally In rela
tion to tbe cbarge of corruption in the pardon
of Howell, mentioned in cennection with
Mrs. Cobb, in Detective Baker's book. Tbe
examination extended to a whole history ot
affairs about tbe White House since Mr. John
son has been bis father's secretary. Attorney
Oeneral Stan berry was also before the cem
m it tee, and was examined in relation te the
pardon system.
No Gabinkt Misting?a special session
of the Cabinet having been beld yesterday
there was no meeting te-day and nothing of
importance transpired at tbe Executive Man
sion. Attorney Oeaeral Stanberry and Secre
tary Stanton bad a long interview with the
President this morning, dnriag which the
suggestions offered by tbe Attorney Oeneral
In bis written opinion were discussed.
Lbavb or Absbbcb?Brevet Major Qeneral
M C. Meigs, Quartermaster Oeneral, bas been
granted a leave of abeenee for six months from
Jnne 5, on account of ill health, with permis
sion to leave tbe United States. Oeneral
Meigs will visit Europe for tbe purpose of
restoring bis health.
Thb Attobbby Obbbkal's Oriviov?The
opinion of Attorney Oeneral Stanberry on the
disfranchising clauses of the recent recoa
btraction laws, which was read before the
Cabinet in special session yssterday, will be
mads public to-morrow. It is quite lengthy,
and quotes many legal authorities.

Reoomstih;ctioii.?Senator Wilson, who
has just returned from the Sonth, represents
the Reconstruction act as being carried into
effect faithfully by all the Union command
ers. This is especially so in General Pope's
District, -where no distinction is made on ac
count of race or co<or. On every Board of
Registration In Georgia, Alabama and Florida
the colored p< ople are represented by one of
Tbeir own race. Sheridan, Schofield, Ord and
Sickles are not far behind Pope, and are doing
nobly in the good cuu^e. Mr. Wilson urges
| that arrangements be made lor a more vigor
ous prosecution of the organization of tbe
T'nion party of theSouth. Some of the strong
est mi n of tbe Union party North are to be in
vited to go Sonrh and enlighten the people
there Judge Shell-ibarger is expected tostirt

Thi- is not true I unve my opinion t<> the Board of
Heiiltli. an the principal ov*ter dealer of this city,
aft- r my long exi>erieuce, and yet maintain it. that
oyster- should not he used from the 1st of June
until about the 12th of September.
It 1- well known among oyst-r-growers tbat the
oy-ter begins to spaw n about the 15th of May and
continues until about the 15th <>f August, and that
about one month mu-t e|ap?e before they are tit to
be us?d, owing to the fa?-t that durintr tiie spawn
ing tbe water is very warm, and that the oyster
injtiit'e* a large amount of heated and impure mud.
in which it exists. Yhrt impurities from the niud
ami -pawn make it apparent that they are not
healthy at that season, and ?hould not be disturbed
in their natural beds.
0> -tern are used in New York during the trammer,
but it must be borne in mind that the climate is
\ cry much cooler than in tbe Chesapeake Bay and
its tributaries, and extraordinary pains are taken
to lay them out on bard bottoms, where they are
free from mud. and vet they are not considered
healthy even in that city. The period suggested by
me is the law in Baltimore and Alexan lna. and I
see no good reason why it should not be made the
law of this city.
All of which I respectfully submit to the honor
able Board of Aldermen and Common Council of the
oar city, hupini; that their action in th? premise?
will give satisfaction to ail dealers, as 1 am satisfied
that it meets tbe interest of every oyster deala^

And seen the clouds ascend in graceful , urls,
But feels the world's dark picture a!l recede.
And hopes gush brighter as each puff unfurls?
The choice aroma of the "Grape Cigar.''

Tis sweet as evening, w hen each peeping star
Receives its homage ftiini the flowers of earth.
It" fumes enliven, renovate and cheer.
Refresh the path mortality must tread.
Like scented groves in nature's wild's appear,
To raise enchantment and relieve the head.
The high and low. the rich aixl poor.
And all who wish to pass a pleasant hour away.
Should call on WELCH, at his famed Cigar Store,
