I have Just finished reading an arti
cle In the Democrat headed "The In
humanity of Mau." I do not know
who the writer is, nor do I care, but
be he priest, layman, or devil, he de
serves the execration of every one
having the least seuso of common
christian decency.
Nothing that lives upon the face of
the earth, that walks, or swims, or
creeps, cr flies, is so low, vile and de
graded, but it would lowered by being
compared with the author of that arti
cle. The only thing I can think of In
any way approaching him in disgust
ing vileness, is a vulture gorged with
carrion and dropping rottenness from
his beak.
De mortuis nil nisi bonun. If of the
dead we speak nothing unless good,
when really called upon to speak of
the living let us be certain that we say
only the truth.
The cowardly assassin approaching
his victim in the dark aud stabbing
him in the back risks his own life
upon the failure 'of his blow, but the
anonymous scribbler of slander ns
saults the reputations or feelings of
his victims with but little chance of
detection. A deeper depth of hell
awaits such an one. JUSTICE.

Miller is facetious on the little

is mistaken as to the occupation of the

not looking for the north star, but for

Counterfeit 'otes.
The list of counterfeit notes compiled
by the Lankers' Association at New
York, has attracted the attention of a
prominent official connected with the
Bank Redemption Agency of the
Treasury Department, who has given
considerable attention to the subject
of detecting counterfeit notes. This
gentleman declares that the list con
tains 24 errors. He avers that 13 of
the bonds named have never been
counterfeited, and It is further stated
that but three counterfeit notes have
appeared since the issue of 18G9.
Theso are the $50 and $500 issues of the
series of 1869, and the recently discov
ered $1,000 issue of 1803 with the vig
nette of Robert Morris. The energies
of the counterfeiters during the last
three years have been directed to
national bank notes, no less than
1 counterfeits 12 on fives, three
on tens, and two on fifties having
been Issued. The Secret Service force
have captured all the plates of coun
terfeit bank notes, with exception of
those that have oppeared within the
lust two months. The following
plates have not been captured. Fives,
on the First National Bank of Tamn
qua, and fiftlesn the Third National

is printed "ownig."

, The Rio Grande Difficulty.
St. Louis, November 11. Late advloci
from El Taso say it is now believed there
wore a number of emissaries of Ledro in
the band of Mexicans which crossed the
Rio Grande about two weeks ago and bad a
fight with Indians on Teias soil while osten
sibly following Indians' There seems to be
no doubt that the real objeot of these Ler
dolsts is to stir up a new revolution and if
possible overthrow Dial This band of
Mexicans have not left yet, and are intrig
uing and doing everything in their powt'
to precipitate a war'Tietween the United
Stales and the Dlas government In hope of
overthrowing the latter and again obtaining
power for themselves. It is said Lerdo's
agents are very aotive all along the Jlio
Orande and are also plotting within the army
of Dias. General Ilibbard, of Texas, re
turned to Austin yesterday to consult with
General Ord and General Steele, the latter
of the Slate forces, regarding the present
state of affairs on the frontier. Major
Jones, of the Texas battalion at El Paso,
has telegraphed the Governor that imme
diate trouble is apprehended, and the Gov.
ernor has been solicited by a number of
persons, especially military officers, to pre
cipitate a conflict if the Federal Govern
ment will not. United States troops on the
Rio Grande are distributed as follows:
Fort Brown, 700; Binggold, 5 companios;
Fort Mclulosh, 1 company; Fort Duncan,
4 companies; Fort Clark, near Eagle Pass,
5 companios. Two thousand Texas militii,
under Brigadier General James, are organ
ized and ready to march across the Rio
Grande. They only want the word.

It is announced from Washington that
lion. Benjamin Willis, of New York, of
fered a bill in the house on Monday "to
simplify existing laws imposing and eol.
lecting duties upon imports, and to remove
all ambiguities therefrom; also, to reduoe
the rates on imported merchandise, restore
the duty upon tea and coffee and to enlarge
the free list." The bill comprises two hub
died and six seotious and is comprehensive
in its character. It was prepared at the
suggestion and uudcr the supervision of
Mr. Willis by an expert. The title clearly
indicates the scope of the bill. The distin
guishing features are a reduotion of twenty
six per cent, upon all imported articles with
the exception of raw materials which enter
manufactures; on these the duties are re
duced in a still greater degree; the restora
tion of the duty on tea and coffee; the en
largement of the free list; substituting for
the free list a provision that all articles not
rpecified in the act shall be exempt from
duly. The author of the bill claims to have
removed all ambiguities. The "similitude
law" is abolished and eimplication aimed at
wherever practicable. Compound duties
are entirely done away with. The collec
tion laws have been reduced to simpler lan
guage. All fees have been discontinued
aud salaries substituted. The naval office,
in all ports of entry where appraiser's de
partments are established, are abolished
and the liquidating clerks transferred to
llio department of appraisers to be in fu
ture under the direction of the chief
thereof. Bonds are to dispensed with,
except, in cases of transportation from the
port of original entry. The United States
are made responsible for all cases of thefts
of merchandise while in official possession.
Purchasers of cargoes afloat are allowed
tipay the duties thereon. Facilities are
provided for the payment of duties by al
lowing deposits of gild with sub-treasurers,
and the owners of the same to check
thereon "for duties only." All materials
which enter into the construction of vessels
are to be free of duty. It is claimed for
the bill that ''it provides for a simple reve
nue tariff." and that "it will save the gov
ernment $20,000,000 per annum in the cost
of collecting duties, while vastly increasing
the receipts from imports." A printed key
will accompany the bill for use of the com
mittee on ways and means.

The Titusville Herald, in a resume
of the petroleum development, says
that after the striking of the Drake
well, At.gust 28, 1856, Oil creek, from
Titusville to its mouth, comprising
forty-five producing farms, was rap.
idly seized upon by speculators, and
in the space of three years the valley
became a forest of derricks. In 1863
the derricks on the creek numbered
upwards of two thousand, and the
average cost of each well was a little
over $4000, making a total expendi
ture for machinery and labor of from
$8,000,000 to $10,000,000 exclusive of
the prices paid for farms or the
royalty. In 1865 five of the farms
produced 16,000 barrels daily, but now
yield only 140 barrels, while the en
tire production of Oil Creek at present
does not exceed 2,300 barrels per day.
The average price of oil was reduced
from f0 per barrel, in 1859. to $9.60 in
I860, and in 1861, owing to increased
production, it declined to ten cents a
barrel, continuing at that figure until
February, 1802, when it rose to twenty
two cents. From this time on better
prices prevailed, and in July, 1864, it
reached $13 00 per barrel, but in the
following year the average price was
$6 13, and at no time since then has it "
reached that figure.
