We have held our paperback one day
in order to get as complete returns from
the election aa possible. Bo far as re
ceived these indicate that the It-adjus
ters bave carried the State and will have
a good working majority in both Hou
ses, but not two-thirds. While this
places the McCulloch bill beyond repeal
for the present, it strikes that measure
a blow which will render it almost use
less, for no bondholder will care to fund
his bouds in tbe face of such strong op
position.— Rockbridge Enterprise, {Re
If the election of a majority of Read
justers shall have the effect which the
Enterprise predicts, and evidently de
sires, the result will be, that the bond
holders will decline to fund in three
per cent bonds under the McCulloch
law, whereby the State will remain un
der obligation to pay six per cent, just
double what it would be under the Mc-
Culloch law. Is this what the tax-pay
ers desire ? Hardly ; and yet this is the
result for which the Readjusters re
Was ever such madness exhibited out
side of a lunatic Asylum ? Such views
have the character of madness, if the
interests of the tax-payers are consider
ed, but if the purpose be to advance the
interest of a party at the expense of th.
honor and interest of the State, then
there is "method" in this madness, foi
the purpose would be to make the in
terest on the public debt sufficiently
great, together with the expenses of thi
government and the public schools, t<
exceed the revenues of the State, aur
thus seemingly to verify the prophecj
of the readjusters that the revenues o
the State would not be sufficient to pa_,
all its obligations. Though this woult
be manifestly fallacious, as an argumen
against the McCulloch settlement wbicl
would be thus prevented from being
carried into effect, yet the readjusters
would expect to make political capital
of it, and this accounts for their desire
to increase, rather than to decrease, the
indebtedness of the State. It is certain
ly the interest of the tax-payers to have
six per cent bonds funded into three per
cent bonds, and if it shall not be done,
the readjusters will be responsible for it,
and for the burdens of taxation which
their policy inevitably imposes upon
the tax-payers, to say nothing of the
disastrous effect of their policy upon the
honor and credit of the State, which are
of incalculable value, but which tbat
party seem to disregard, upon the de
grading consideration that honor is of
no value as "it cannot buy a breakfast,"
seemingly ignorant of the fact that hon
or is to the State what chastity is to fe
male character—a virtue the value of
which no pecuniary consideration can
measure. A State without honor is as a
body without a soul—dead.
Though the readjusters do not desire
it, their success will not only add to the
strength of the opposition in the North
to the success of the Democratic party,
but it will even inspire the Republican
party of this State with the hope of car
rying it for a Republican candidate for
the Presidency next year.
The argument in the North will be,
that the Democratic party of the south
is a repudiating party, that should not
be trusted with power, and will point
to the success of the readjusters in this
State as proof of it, and it will have
great effect in weakening the Demo
cratic party in the Nothern States.
In every aspect, National and State,
the success of the readjusters, as they
are called by a misnomer, is prolific of
misfortune and calamity—"the direful
spring of woes unnumbered." The ef
fect, we fear, will be "evil, and only
evil, and that continually." We hope
that Providence in its wisdom may
"from evil educe good."
How Repudiation Costs.—Presi
dent Simonds, of the First National
Bank of Charleston, S. C, in a commu
nication to the News of that city, says :
"There is nothing more certain than
that the repudiators have cost the State
already more than tbe whole consoli
dated debt. Why ask capitalists abroad
to invest here when those of our own
people who have money to invest, land
tbeir number is much larger than is
generally supposed,) are daily seeking
investments in United States four per.
cents, and other securities outside of the
State, because theyjhave lost confidence
in the good character ofthe State? The
money which has been sent out of the
State in the last two or three years
would have completed all the public
works you name, as well as many
others not named, and would also have
put thousands of spindles in motion in
the very section where the repudiators
most abound, thus giving employment
directly to women and children, and in
directly to the farmers in raising pro
visions to feed the operatives."

A Terrible Accident.—ln Spring
Garden township, York county, Pa.
last Thursday, a youth named William
Stambaugh, aged sixteen years, went to
the farm of Mr. Hines, a neighbor,
where they were thrashing, and while
playing in the straw with a daughter of
Mr. Hines, the latter took a shaking
fork, filled with straw and playfully
tossed it at him. At the same moment
the boy started forward, the fork strik
ing his face, one of its prongs penetrat
ing his right nostril and reaching the
brain. Blood flowed freely from the
wound for twenty-four hours following,
and as soon as tbe'flow ceased the brain
became clogged, and the youth's senses
were gone, he remaining in a wild and
fligjty condition until death relieved
him of bis sufferings.
A Narrow Escape.—At the Fair
mont W. Va., last Friday week, afe
male from Cincinnati "went up" in a
heated air balloon. The ascent was fine.
The balloon was borne in an easterly
direction, about a mile away, in the
middle of the Monongahela river, and
if it had not been for timely aid the fe
male aeronaut might have drowned, but
she was promptly rescued and escaped
with a ducking.
Contributions by Newspaper Pro
prietors.—Mr. A. S. Abell, Proprietor
of the Baltimore Sun, and G. W.
Child., Proprietor of the Philadelphia
Ledger bave each contributed the sum
of $500 to the fund for the maintenance
and education ofthe orphan children of
the late Gen. Hood.
Two colored men— Geo. Bannister
and Henry Nofsinger—charged with

The Baltimore "Ganette" of Thurs
day has the following editorial on the
state of affairs in Virginia:
'•'The news from Virginia seems to
indicate a victory for the "readjusters"
or repudiators of the State debt. It is
not yet assured, for the votes of the re
moter, districts are not yet ascertained,
but the outlook is dispiriting. It is a
satisfaction, however, to note that in
the centers of intelligence, such as
Richmond and Charlottesville, where
the spirit of Old Virginia is least con
taminated, the victory of the debt-pay
ers was most decided, while iv the pla
ces where the negro republican vote
was strongest the readjusters were suc
cessful. But this will not save the State
from the disgrace and the business dis
asters which will follow if repudiation
should win the day, nor will it ever
blunt the edge of the radical taunts.
On the news of the election Virginia
consols declined iv value in this mar
ket from 66J to 62f. Should the news
of to-day confirm the report that the
"readjusters" have won, a still further
decline will take place. The debt pay
ers have made a splendid fight. They
have contested the'onset of the repudia
tionists like men who fought for the
honor and the welfare of the State. If
they have lost it will be bitter for them
to feel that they will be involved in the
disgrace of the Commonwealth and will
be confounded in the general reproach.
It will be a greater loss to Virginia than
all the losses of the war—the ruined in
dustries, the fields laid waste, the for
ests cut down, the mills and barns burn
ed, the cities destroyed and the lines of
transportation made bankrupt. The
forests will grow again, the mills, and
barns and fences be rebuilt and harvests
grow in the furrows plowed by the war,
but the stain on the old Commonwealth
if repudiation be consummated, will
never be effaced."
The Presidential Outlook.—The
Philadelphia Inquirer, a moderate re
publican paper, is not enthusiastic over
the republican prospects for the ap
proaching presidential election. In a
table, which it says is "the best that can
be done in the way of presenting a table
of the electoral vote of 1880 favorably to
the republican party," it gives as cer
tain democratic States all the Southern
States and Indiana, making 153 electo
ral votes. In the doubtful States it
places Connecticut, New York and New
Jersey, with 50 electoral votes, claiming
the remaining Northern and Western
States, with 160 votes, as certain for the
republicans. There are necessary to a
choice 185 votes, which the republicans
will not have, even if the 15 votes of
New Jersey and Connecticut be added
to their 166, unless they get New York,
and which, and more, the Democrats
will have if they get New York. That, in
fact, is the only State they want to
make their election sure. Hence the
Inquirer regards New York as the bat
tle-ground, and it concludes that "noth
ing but hard, intelligent work from
now until the day of election will avail,
and even with all that the result will be
in doubt."
Result in New York.—Special in
terest attaches to the election in New
York as upon the vote of that State will
in all probability depend the result of
the Presidential election. The result
last Tuesday would seem to indicate
that the vote of that State will be cast
next year for the Democratic candidate
for the Presidency. In the vote last
Tuesday the Republican candidate, Cor
nell, was elected, but this was owing to
the fact that theie were two Democratic
candidates in the field for that office—
Robinson and Kelley. The balance of
the State ticket was elected by the Dem
ocrats, which shows that the vote of the
State is Democratic.

A Monument to Adam.—A sub
scription paper is now being circulated
in Elmira, ' t New York, to raise $2,000
with which to erect in that city a mon
ument to Adam. The idea of erecting
a monument to Adam in Elmira, origi
nated with the Rev. Thomas K. Beech
er in a discourse, in which it was held
that if Elmira was not the Garden of
Eden, it should have been. Mark
Twain, whose summer residence is in
Elmira, and whose wife is a native of
the city, at once fell in with the Rev.
Mr. Beecher. A marble monument,
seventy-five feet high, is to be raised.—
It is to have an inscription written by
Mark Twain. It is expected to be in
position for unveiling by next spring.
Barn Burnt.—From the Virginia

Fellows, two and a quarter miles from

about three o'clock on Tuesday morn

hogs, a wheat drill, four or five tons of
hay, some straw and harness, were con

Suicide in Shenandoah.—We
learn from the Shenandoah Herald that
Charles Spiker, a young man nearly 22
years of age, living near Mt. Olive in
that county, committed suicide on Tues
day evening October 28tb, by shooting
himself with a pistol. He bad just re
turned home from near Martinsburg,
and had gone to his room, when the
family were startled by the report of a
pistol. On going to his room, they found
him lying on the floor, dead, the pistol
lying by his hand. Cause is unknown.
Che jury of inquest was summoned
and after hearing the testimony and ex
amining the body, returned a verdict
that Charles Spiker came to his death
by a pistol in his own hands and that
the act was done in a moment of ex
treme aberration of mind.
Major Reno in Trouble Again.—
A dispatch from St. Paul, Minn., is as
follows: "The charges preferred by
Gen. Sturges against Maj. Reno, of the
7th cavalry, were received at depart
ment headquarters Wednesday, and
Gen. Terry has detailed a court-martial
to sit at Fort Meade for Reno's trial on
the 24th inst. The charges are based on
Reno's having been drunk a week ago
last Friday, in which condition he act
ed improperly in the presence of a lady
and had a fight in consequence. After
that he acted improperly while intoxi
cated, and wound up with a fight at the
officers' club-room with Surgeon Brew
er, of Md. Reno is said to have been
worsted in both fights."

The Bichmond Dispatch maintains
that, without the uegro vote, the read

members of the House, nor half a dozen
members of the Senate. This may be
an exaggeration, but it seems evident
that, without the negro vote, they would
have been in a great minority. Wher
ever they could determine the result in
favor of the readjusters, the negroes
voted for them.

Lynch Law In the West.
[From the Chicago Tribune, Oct- B__]
Keokuk, lowa, October 29.—The case
of Bill Young, whose trial for the mur
der of Lewis Spencer and his four chil
dren, near Luray, Clark county, Mo.,
in 1877, wihich closed at Kahoka od
Saturday last, and resulted in a verdict
of not guilty, culminated to-day in a re
sort to mob violence. There was strong
circumstantial evidence against Young,
but the prosecution was greatly weak
ened by the fiasco of Detective Lane in
attempting to account for the bloody
overalls. Although acquitted, a major
ity of the people of Clark county were
convinced of his guilt, and however
much they may deprecate lynch law, it
is safe to say that the public at large
who had read the evidence shared this
opinion. It was not known or even
suspected outside of Clark county, how
ever, that any move would be made to
execute summary punishment.
On Sunday afternoon Young was mar
ried at Kahoka to Miss Lydia Bray, of
Ohio, to whom he was engaged before
his arrest, and who has been in this sec
tion for the past four months assisting
him in preparing his defence. They
arrived in this city on Monday evening
and remained here until this morning, '
when they left for Young's home near '
Luray. Their movements have -been
closely watched. Last night a mob
numbering 100 to 200 men assembled '
north of Kahoka, and was waiting there
tbis morning when the train passed.—
Finding that Young went on to his
home, they followed on horseback and
in wagons, and after bis arrival there '
surrounded his house and demanded his '
surrender. Young, who was accompa- '
nied by J. C. Coffman, of Toledo, one of I
his attorneys, refused to surrender and
opened fire on the mob, but without ef- '
feet- Shots were exchanged and firing
was kept up until Young was wounded.
Eight men then forced their way into
the house, took Young out and banged
him until he was dead. The most in- ',
tense excitement prevails, and it is im-
possible as yet to obtain the particulars.
The mob that hanged Bill Young is
variously estimated at two hundred and
fifty to rive hundred. They met at Lin
coln College, near Kahoka, last night,
voted to carry their purpose into execu
tion and arranged all the details. It
was a part of the plan to take Young
from the train on its arrival at Kahoka,
but the man who was sent to this city
to notify them of bis movements delay
ed sending his his dispatch until it was
too late. The mob then proceeded with
great haste to Luray, a distance of ten
miles. Upon tbeir arrival there Young
had reached his home and two ladies
bad called on Mrs. Young. Coffman
was also there- The mob surrounded
the house and demanded that all but
Young come out —Coffman and the two
ladies—but Young kept his wife and
children with him. Firing was soon
opened and for a time a perfect volley
was kept up. Young's mode of defence
was to open the door, Are into the crowd
and dodge back, the crowd returning
the fire whenever he made his appear
ance. Tbis was kept up until Young
bad received four wounds and fell to the
floor bleeding and exhausted. The mob
then piled hay around the house and
were about to fire it, when Young's
children came running out, exclaiming,
"Father is killed." A squad of men
then entered the house, placed him in a
wagon, ran it under an arched gateway
leading to the premises, and placed a
rope about his neck.
Young called for the picture of bis
first wife and kissed it very affectionate
ly. He also called for Detective Lane,
who shook hands with him. Two of
the men wrote for Young a short biog
raphy of his ilfe. The mob then form
ed in line in the yard, and Lane select
ed from the number nine men to hang
Young. Four men carried him to the
orchard gateway, near tbe bouse, he
praying iv a very supplicating manner
on the way.
Young was placed in a wagon, with
his feet and bands tied and allowed time
in which to make a statement. He said
he had made a written statement agree
ing to assist in ferretting out the Spen
cer murderers, and given the same to
Hanson and Johnson. He then indulg
ed in a rambling talk, probably for the
sake of gaining'time.
The crowd yelled, "Tbat is not what
we want; tell us who assisted you in the
murder of the Spencers." His last words
were, "I am as innocent of that crime
as the angels in heaven."
At 4 o'clock the noose was adjusted
and the wagon pulled out. The body
swayed back and forth until life was
wholly extinct. In twenty minutes
tbe crowd mounted their horses and
rode away. As they were departing
Mrs. Young came out of the house cry
ing and wringing ber hands, and beg
ged them to cut Young down, which
was refused.
Young's gunshot wounds were not
After Coffman came out of the house
he was locked up in the granary.
It is said tbat tbe mob was composed
of good citizens of Clark county. There
were a few from lowa. The sentiment
of the people is divided. Some approve
the action of tbe mob openly. Others
are not sorry Young is out of the way,
but do not indorse this summary method
of disposing of him, while his friends
regard it as a dastardly outrage.

Senator Hill, of Georgia, who is one
of the ablest men in the country, thinks
.that the great question before the coun
try upon whicu the two parties will
have to stand face to face in 1880, is
this; "Shall we continue our Constitu
tional system of dual, Federal and State
government, or shall we by force and
fraud, aud not by Constitutional amend
ments, destroy that system and substi
tute for it one consolidated empire!—
Tbis is tli_ issue for 1880, and the result
will he the test—it may be the final test
—of ihe capacity of the) American people
for "-(-If government."
Tiiis is certaiuly the issue, aud the re
sult of the uext Presidential election
will determine whether we shall con
tinue a constitutional republic or die a
"consolidated empire." The rapid drift
of things at tbe present moment tends
directly toward the latter end. Written
constitutions are not as enduring as un
written ones, if we take Mother Eng
land as a sample, because the one is as
shifting as the sands ofthe sea shore and
subject to tbe ebb and flow of all the
tides of fickle public opiuion, while the
latter are engraven in stone and last for
centuries. The constitution of the Uni
ted States, and of all the States, bave
radically chauged in the last century,
and some of them in the last few years,
and we are rapidly drifting into a mon
archy with few of the land marks of the
old Federal or State constitution left us.
One more stride in 1880, and the Empire
under the first Grant will be complete
— Petersburg Post.

"Three cbeers for the American
King !" "Thrte cheersforthe first King
of America!" These are samples of the
shouts which tbe more enthusiastic of
Grant's lowa friends raise as he sweeps
through that stronghold of Radicalism
and centralization. The men who raise
this cry are what William Almon
Wheeler would call the skirmish line of
the Republican army. Their indiscre
tion will be reproved by the sagacious
leaders, but it is an undeniable fact that
the tendencies of BadicalUm are to
ward monarchical institution. A long
stride in that direction will have been
made if they succeed in tbeir determin
ed assault ... ou local self government.
The dt.true!ion of the States, as tbey
exist under the Constitution, will give
us such a centralized despotism as will
be far worse than constitutional mon
archy. But this work is not accom
plished yet, and it is the mission ofthe
Democratic party to prevent its accom
plishment. The lowa enthusiasts who
cheer "the first American King" echo
a sentiment that has lodgement in many

Enormous .train Shipments.
[From theN. Y. Commercial Advertiser, Oc
tober 27.]
The enormous quantity of grain which
Is on the way to this city by rail and
canal appears to be only a fragment of
what is wanted for exporation, if the
shipments of the past three months are
to be taken into consideration. Official
figures show that up to Saturday night
last there were on the canal bound for
tide-water 2,802,000 bushels of wheat,
1,105,000 bushels of corn, 94,000 bushels
of oats, 784,000 bushels of barley, and
71,000 bushels of rye. These shipments
are all expected to arrive here within
fourteen days, and notwithstanding the
sharp weather of the past few days, are
not likely to be caught by tbis winter's
ice. It is calculated that grain can be
shipped from Buffalo safely up to No
vember 10th, and later shipments have
been made and brought through to this
port, but cannot always be relied upon.
Rail and lake shipments, according to
the official figures, were for the four
weeks ending October 18, in wheat, 11,
376,440 bushels; corn, 8,791,881 bushels;
oats, 2,010,335 bushels ; barley, 1,386,712
bushels; rye, 565,048 bushels. In wheat,
oorn and rye there has been a large in
crease, but in oats and barley a slight
decrease. The increase in wheat has
been 2,785,443 bushels, and in corn 1,305,
981 bushels. Since that date there hae
been no falling off in the shipments, but
the precise figures for last week have
not yet been compiled, although the
computation of the shipments by lake
and rail, exclusive of canal, is said to
exceed 3,000,000 bushels of wheat and
2 000,000 bushels ol corn, besides other
grain. Most of the arrivals find their
way almost immediately to sea, and
is not yet fully comprehended. The
Commercial has already given some
idea of the wheat crop of 1879, which is
estimated at 425,000,000 bushels, of
which 250,000,000 are required for home
consumption. This leaves 100,000,000
for European demand, and 15,000,000
bushels for other parts. How fast this
surplus has been going away from the
United States is shown by the official
figures of Mr. E. H. Walker, the sta
tistician of the New York Produce Ex
change. He shows that from July Ito
October 15 there were exported from the
Atlantic shores 75,692,917 bushels, from
San Francisco 6,748,888 bushels, and
from Portland, Oregon, to October 1,
only about 197,964 bushels. Of this it is
estimated that about 15,000,000 bushels
were from the, old crop of 1878. Mr.
Walker, in conversation with a repre
sentative of the Commercial this morn
ing, said the magnitude of this export
movement is not fully comprehended
when expressed in million bushels.
Loading 400 bushels in a freight car
sixty feet long, the amount of wheat ex
ported up to tbe time mentioned would
require for its transportatiou 256,452
oars, which, if made up in one contin
uous train, would extend 2,346 miles.
If loaded in ships of 300 tons burden, it
would require a fleet of 825 .-hips to con
vey the wheat across the ocean. He
estimates also that tbis export of wheat
has brought into this country in ex
change for it, in gold or its equivalent,
more than $100,000,000.

Attention, Radical Liars!—"ln
formation has been received here of an
attempt by tbe readjusters of Falmouth,
Va., to burn General Fitzhugh Lee in
effigy Thursday night. General Lee was
a prominent debt-payers' candidate for
the Legislature, and most earnest in his
denunciation of repudiation. He was
defeated. The readjusters of Falmouth
made an effigy of him, and rode it
around on a rail Thursday night. Tbey
were about to burn it, but were persuad

thinking, who, hearing of the affair,
rode over from Fredericksburg, five

Meteorological.—The 10th month
(Oct.) just past (1879) has been unusual
one, and warmer than any preceding
October for the past ten years oifuiore.
The first 20 days were nearly 14 degrees
warmer than tbe mean of that month
for the same time, and the mean tempe
rature for the whole month was higher
than any corresponding month for the
same length of time. The mean tempe
rature for the first 20 days was 72°22,

mean temperature for the last 10 years
was about 58°16. There were only two

All the others did not average over 55°.
We have had only about 1} inches of

Team Run into by a Train.—On

before the driver could wheel them off.

A Reminiscence of Lincoln.
Abingdon, 111., October 22d.
To the Editor of the Chicago Tribune .
Seeing the marked interest attracted
to the period ofthe inauguration o)
Lincoln by the recent publication of th«
several papers from the "Diary of a Pub
lic Man," it bas seemed not improbable
tbat some of your readers would perhaps
be interested to know, if any one could
tell, at what point of time it became
known to this "unlettered greenhorn,"
to whom the Republican party had so
recklessly entrusted "the life of the na
tion," tbat we were engaged in a war
with the "dissatisfied " States. This
knowledge came to him, as most of hie
knowledge did, by the slow process ol
his reasoning powers, before he left
Springfield, and before the Virginia
Convention had even met to considei
the position that State-would take, and
it came round in this wise: Mr. Lincoln .
chief point of anxiety between the elec
tion and inauguration was tc have the
"border States " stay, land he kept up
negotiations with the Union men oi
Virginia to secure tbat end until the
result of that election was known.
Along with the news of their triumph
ant success came a letter frcm Col. John
R. Raldwin, since dead, stating the dan
ger was immense, and refusing to be
responsible for the result In convention
at all without an implicit declaration
from Mr. Lincoln of a policy on which
he could safely intrench, giving him a
cart blanche, without so much as a hint
of what it should be. but so ably and
succinctly setting forth the situation he
should have to meet a3 to make us at
once and fully sensible a crisis had come.
Mr. Lincoln took the letter in the even
ing, for "a night to reflect," and pro
mised to return it with bis answer next
morning at 8 o'clock. Precisely, almost
to tbe moment, he came with the letter
to my room, and his answer made up,
and it was this: "Tell them I will ex
ecute the fugitive slave law better than
it has ever been. I can do that. T ell
them I will protect slavery in the States
where it exists. I can do that Tell
them that they shall have all the offices
south of Mason & Dixon's line if they
will take them. I will send nobody
down tbere as long as they will execute
the offices themselves." This much be
intended for "them" "Rut," said he,
with a mournful sadness it was impos
sible to hear without deep sympathy at
once, "all tbis will do no good. They
are in a position where they muse have
the right to carry slavery into the
territory of the United States. I have
lived my whole life and fought this
thing through on the idea that slavery is
a sin, and ought not to be extended,
and I can't go back on myself." With
out salutation or other word he unfolded
himself and stalked out with a look of
unutterable grief, and I lay down and
wept. Our minds at his last words bad
met. We felt what it meant. And war
was the word we saw at tbat instant,
red handed and grim and distinct. The
negotiation witb Virginia was trans
ferred to Washington, and he got him
self there as quick and as safe as lie could.
He went there to fight, and if need be,
to die. H. Chrisman.

Disaster following Disaster.—
The Baltimore Sun of yesterday says: —
The last days of the week just ended
were fruitful of disasters. On Friday
morning the New York and Charleston
steamer Champion went down in-col
lision with the ship Lady Octavia, off
the Delaware Capes. Thirty lives were
lost. On the evening of the same day
the New York and Liverpool steamship
Arizona struck an iceberg and had to
put into St. John's, N. 8., for repairs.
On Saturday night the Baltimore and
Charleston steamer Falcon went down
near Cove Point, Chesapeake bay, in
collision with the schooner S. C. Tryon.
Nine passengers and the crew of twen
ty-two officers and men were rescued
and brought to Baltimore on the schoon
er. They lost all personal effects, and
several of the passengers had to be fur
nished with clothing. The steamer had
a large general cargo for tbe South, val
ued at $40,000. In addition to these
comes the news of the loss of the How
gate polar expedition schooner Flor
ence ; also a story of shipwreck and suf
fering from the survivors of the lost
schooner Petrel, besides a number of
other disasters of less importance.

What they can do. —This Legisla
ture cannot repeal the McCulloch act.—
The Governor's veto settles tbat ques
tion. They cannot prevent taxes being
paid in coupons. The courts have set
tled that. Therefore, if they should
make appropriations for the support of
the free schools, and the expenses of the
government, and refuse to make an ap
propriation for interest on the public
debt and should cut down taxation for
that purpose, the coupons would still
pay the taxes, and these wiseacres
would simply stop tbe wheels of the
State government—simply damage the
State credit—they would be "gnawing a
file." The truth is they can do nothing
but agitate, and, by a coalition with
Radicals, grab the offices. The proba
bility is their ambition and patriotism
will be satisfied with this.— Lynchburg

Rutlerizing.—One day last week,
two negro men were traveling around
Charlottesville, en deavoring to sell to
the merchants a lot of silver and plated
ware, cut up iDto small pieces, which
they carried in a bag. Suspicion tbat
they had been butlerizing, led to their
arrest and commitment to jail by Capt.
Walstrum. Chief of Police. We under
stand that informrtion has been received
from a gentleman living near Elizabeth

hopeß to be able to join the Princess in
