' W. W. B. OALLAHER. Editor. Charleototrn.Jeffernon County. West Va. March gtf, ISVO. General Von Caprivi, comuiauder of ihe tenth corps of the German army, has been appointed chaueellor of the empire, to suc ceed Bismarck. By the wav what has become of senator Kvuna of West Virginia? He hasn't been heard of fer a long, long time. Is he stray ed. loet or stolen '—ShephenUtoicn Register. He was heard from on Thursday when the decisive vote on the Blair bill was taken. Governor Fleming seems to have taken up the pardon business where Governor \V llsou left off.—.Slafc Journal. That’s where he took up the governorship. k disposition on the Governor’s part to ex ercise the pardoning power oughtn t to be a cause of discouragemeut to West Virginia Republicans. -Some of the brainiest men in this section, to sav nothing of Judge Daniel B. Lucas.—// r. Sentinel. What has he got against Judge Lucas? *'You’re damned if you do, and you’re damned if you don't” take a hand in the Shenandoah improvement, it setni'. Ihe Sentinel is hard to please Deprived of the supreme genius oi Bis marck, will it be passible for the armed truce which the great diplomat has »o long pre served between France and Germany to con tinue, however fully the Emperor may be resolved las he savs) to bo guided by the former chancellor’s policy of peace ? W ill not the touch of an unskilled hand precipi tate the war that has seemed impending? The Seittlnel thinks that the Republican officials of the war department can ha "iu duenced" in favor ol “desirable objects.’ Maybe so, but as the “desirable object’ in this instance has been adjudged inexpedient and unworthy, we hardly think they will •tultify themselves by ordering the work to be done—unless, as lias been stated, Senator Faulkner and Congressman Wilson have additional facts which will throw more light on the subject. A test rote was reached on the Blair bill last Thursday and the measure met with a decisive defeat. On the motion to order the bill It) it* third reading and engrossment the vote was —yeas 31, nays 37. Eight Deni ocratic Senators, including the two from Virginia, voted for the bill and four in tavor of it were paired. The West \ irginia and Maryland Senators voted against it. Mr Blair, finding the motion **s lost, changed his vote from yea to nay so as to make a motion te reconsider. The Emperor William has cordially thank ed Prince Bismarck for his services and ap pointed him Duke of Eauenburg, a field marshal general and a colonel-general of cavalry. The Emperor may be sincere in his expression of gratitude to the ex-Cban cellor and regret at his retirement, but the fact remains that Bismarck resigned because both he and the Emperor could not rule ami neither would yield to the other. He had been the actual supreme ruler of the Em pire toe long te take the second place now. The retirement of Prince Bismarck seems an immeasurable loss to Germany iu its relation to other nation> and may imperil the unity of the great confederation ; but au obstruction is removed from the path ol the progress of democratic principles. I he young Emperor, whose auibiliou it is to he an absolute ruler, doubtless cherishes the belief thst the resignation of the Chancellor leaves the way clear for the accomplishment of his aims; but unless he is another ‘‘man of blood and iron” he cannot withstand the democratic tendency of the age. Major-General George Lrooir, commander of the Department of the Missouri, I’nited States army, died suddenly of heart disease last Friday morning, in his room in the Grand Pacific Hotel at Chicago, in the 02nd year of hi* age. Gen. Crook was a native of Ohio and graduated at the M litary Acad emy in ’52. He served in several Indian expeditions, and went into the civil war as a colonel of Ohio iufautry. He was wound ed in the action at Lewisburg, \V. Ya., and in ’02 was hrevetted lieutenant colonel t"r his services at Antietam. He took an active part in subsequent actions in Virginia and in Sheridan’s Shenandoah campaign, and in ‘64 received brevets of brigadier-general. Kince the war his services have been inti mately associated with Indian campaigns, which he conducted so successfully as to win the *obriquctot’“The Great Indian Fighter." He wa> appointed major-general in ’88. Our beloved little contemporary at Har per’* Ferry indulges in some withering -ar casm tiecause we *poke lust week of its "lim ited *pace,” and say* that the Free PrE" sec* itself to the total eclip-o >f all “con temporaneous lights," "though they show twenty column* of reading mutter against ten or twelve" of ours. Now, we had no thought of beiug so cruel a* to iu-titute a comparison between the Free Press and Sentinel. We don’t like to jump on a fellow •mailer than ourself. But, a> we are forced to a contemplation of the facts in the case, what are they * The copy we received of the Suntin*T$ i**jeof the loth, was a half •heet, containing exactly fourteen narrow column* »n all, of which less than eight and a-half wera devoted to reading matter -and such reading matter ’ This week the tinrl sent u* a full sheet of twenty-eight column*—about nineteen columns of read ing matter. The fourteen columns of the outside, including a little more than eleven of reading matter, are printed away from home, and over them the editor of the Sen- , tine! ha* no control and couldn’t insert a line on the first or fourth page to save his life. But if the Sentinel wants more space, let it imitate the Free PrEs- and come to the top, where ‘‘there’s always room.” After all, its the quality, not the quantity, that make* the difference ♦ ▼ The Ritchie Gazette (Republican; says that ballot reform is not needed in this State, j Nut tor the OaxeUe't purposes certainly.—r kee Putts. ' j • i\ e Ritchie Gazette desires fair elections as much as auy paper in the country ; but it does not beiieVe that fraud was rautpaut 1 at the election el 1SSS. The bowl for bal- , i lot reform comes with poor grace from a J party fresh from the theft of the governor- j ■»hip’of the 6late. The alleged ballot re form hill introduced in the Legislature pro viaed neither a remedy nor a penalty lor the hideous political crimes committed by the Democratic party in West \ irginia j within the last fifteen months. How de lightful a thing it is for a grinning political deformity, a horrible skeleton caught with its mask off, such as the disgusting, decay ing, decrepit, debased, debauched old wreck I which h.i* misgoverned in this Stute for the iast twenty years, to come in stoopiug be neath a load of guilt, and witii its ghastly features working iu gro*s burlesque, scream iu the feeble tones of a dying effort, “ballot I reform !” A party that has tampered with ballot buses, trampled on tbe constitution, defied the law, issued false certificates of I election, drugged members of the Legisla turc, made threats of assas'ination, and finally raped and stolen the highest office in the State, is a sweet, beautiful and mag nificent one indeed to talk of ballot reform Let the murderer sigh for peace, the dc bauchee for virtue, the highwayman for or der, and let there be given to the wolf, the tiger and the hyena grace, love and mercy, j while the Democratic party of West Vir I ginia demands ballot reform. This is, in ; truth, the greatest travesty, the keenest sa tire and the highest diversion ever offered I the people.— Ritchie Gazette. Whether or not the Democratic party can consistently demand fair elections, it is quite consistent for the Republican party to op pose them. The Gazette takes the defensive j whenever the subject of election frauds is mentioned ; there is evidently a »ore spot right there; and if howls and calls names, and admits, every time it opens its capacious mouth, that the grand old party is respon I sible for all the election rascality perpetra ' ted in thi ^tate. Only a week or two ago it said that if the Republicans were guilty of the * rimes they are accused of, they woulun t enact a law to Keep mem irom uo mg the like again, and if they were not guilty they would not comply with the de mand for a reform law. Clearly it thinks that eheiion law .are not needed to restrain any but Republicans. Does anybody sup pi ..e tha if tbe Uaietle thought the Repub lican party perfectly innocent, and the Democratic party guilty of all that it charge*, it wouldn’t want a law to “keep .hem from doing the like again? ’ Of course, it doesn't want ballot reform. Is there any kind of reform that the Republican party isin favor of? Does it demand, or promise, or suggest the pos.ibility of reform in any di rection ? Does it improve or elevate or pu rify anything in the State or Federal gov ernment that it takes hold of? Its creed is, apparently, that everything is too good as it is, and ought to be made a little worse. And so the eminent Republican states man, Mr. Morris—a State Senator and lnth or to supposed to be a lawyer—opposed tbe ballot reform bill because it "provided neither a remedy nor a penally” for crimes a lcged to have been committed by the Dem ocratic party within a year or so before. He wanted au ex post facto penalty, for Democrats only ! There’s a sample of West Virginia Republican statesmanship and le gal attainment for you. In common with bis fellow R publicans Mr. Morris sheds bitter tears over the fail ure of the party of moral ideas to reap the rewards of its infamous attempt to get the g ivernorship of West Virgiuia by the fraud and corruption of tbe election ol ’Sf>, and hurls abuse at the contest committee (of which he was a member), and defames the judicial body authorized t>y tbe Constitu t on to determine the contest (to w hich he belonged) because its judgment did not accord with what lie pretends to have been his opinion. And all the while he exults with ghoulish glee as this or that Republi can ‘breaks into Congress” and is given the s#at of a fairly elected Democratic member, l.v Siw»uL-or nutftil nroi’css. He hurls maledictions against the Demo cratic party, securing to exhaust a vocabu lary of invective that Ingalls might envy ; but above his furious charges of appalling crimes against the suffrage sounds the Ga 2’ ttc't declaration : “Ballot reform not needed in this State.” Thirty-five surviving members of Com pany B, first Virginia cavalry, Confederate army, had a reunion at St Clair Motel at Martinsburg on Thursday. This company was made up of Berkeley county men, and was commanded successively by Captain John Blair Hoge, Kirk Hammond, (who was killed by the side of Gen. J. K B. Stuart at Yellow Tavern.) and J. N. Cun ningham. ('apt. \V. B. Colston, second Virginia infantry, by request, delivered the opening address. Letter- of regret were r. ad from Gen. Fitzhugh Lee and Hon. John B air Hoge. It i> a nice tiring to live in a District rep r -ente 1 in Congress by a man who is cer tain of rennmination and re-election. It makes easy work and harmony in the con vention- and walk overs on election days. The condition prevails in the Second Dis trict, where such a majority i- returned for Hon. Wm. L. Wilson that Speaker Heed did not even “suppose the case.”—Do~ \ miniow. On last Thursday Congressman Barnes ( .nipt n, of Maryland, was unseated by a partv vote and the republican contestant, S K. Mudd, declared the representative in Congr. hs of the fifth Maryland district. The Maryland delegation, like that of West • Virginia, is now evenly divided between ;1 the Democratic aud Republican parties. i ' The Richmond completed its four- ' teenth year on the 20th inst. Its career has 1 been a -ucces-ful one—it- course fully meet- * ing the expectations and satisfying the * wishes of its patrons. It is a true Virginia > paper, and we hope for it continued proa- t perity. j < Jonathan Keene, a well-known farmer of L- udoun county, was thrown under the ti w -1 of a wagon and received injuries r which caused hi- death the next day.

The celebrated chancery cause of the Fi delity Insurance and Trust Company vs the Shenandoah Valley Railroad Company wa* decided last Thursday, by the Supreme Court of Appeals. The opinion was deliv ered by Judge Brannon. Judge Lucas who was of counsel in the court below, wn absent. It is held that the Central Im provement Company is entitled to equitabh compensation under the agreement of A pri 29, 1878, for the failure of the Sbenandoat Valley Railroad Company to deliver tin second mortgage and increase bonds called for by that ngreement, but this equitabb compensation must be subject to the firsi mortgage bond# held by the Fidelity Com pany as trustee to the amount of $15,000 per mile at six (not seven) per cent, pei annum. The amount of compensation al lowed the Central Improvement Company is fixed by the face value of the bond* which were to be deliverd to it under said agreement, as follows: $250,000 with in ter-si from the 1st day of April, 1870, sub ject to a credit of $11,000, and a further sum of $379,224, without interest. The first sum represents the second mortgage bonds, and the second sum ot $379,224 represents the inproau*. 1 Whuf w Irnmvn in “thi* Philadelphia record and attachment,” was held no bar to recovery by the Central Im provement Company, except as an offset to the interest of the $11,(XX) mentioned above. The order of priorities in the pro ceeds of the snle when the road is sold is fixed as follows: First, proper cost of plain tiffs in these causes: second, receivers' cer tificates or charges under the receivership; third, the first mortage bonds, with interest thereon at six per cent, per annum to the extent of $15,000 per mile; fourth, to the Central Improvement Company $250,000, with interest from the first day of April, 1S79. with provision to meet the contin gency of insufficiency of proceeds ns indict ed in decree; filth, to the Central Improve ment Company the further sum of$.‘179,224, with interest from this date; sixth, one per cent, interest on the «aid first mortgnge bonds of April 1, 1SS0; seventh, bonds se cured by general mortgage, April 5, 1881; eighth, increase mortgage bonds of Febru ary 12, 18<t; ninth, such receivers’ certifi cates as cannot he paid under second class, above specified. The Circuit Court of Jef ferson county was reversed throughout. The decision is not considered as favorable to the Central Improvement Company as that nf Judge Duckwat).

Baltimorean: Since my last letter from Wanamakerville I have been travel ing in Germany. At least I suppose I have been traveling i» Germany, for nearly all ' the people who do not speak German, speak badly lractured English; and they come at you in so many different ways; they hash their sentences. I was driving up from the depot to a little town the other day, and : I said to the driver: “I want to see Mr. Didlehopperdomorc; do you know if he is in town ? “Did you want to see him once?” “Well, I wouldn’t mind seeing him twice.” “Veil, he is in town, but I don’t think you can see him.” “Why not?” “Veil, you see he was gitting himself bu ried ?” “Getting himself buried ! what for?” “Oh ! well, he was dead once.’’ And that’s the way it goes. To-day at dinner, for instance, we have seven kinds of pie. Among them was n new kind te me ; it was brown sugar pie. As it may be new to some of my fair read ers who are interested in the world's fare, 1 give the directions how te make one. You want to make more than one. You make a pie crust, a crusty crust, with plenty of shortening, considerable length and gone depth. Then you fill it with brown stigai and bake it. Then you give it to youi husband for dinner; then you collect his life insurance. Well, I am fond of new things, and call ing the flaxen haired, blue eyed, ror>y cheeked waitress to me, with an Edwit Booth te-'ture. I said : “Will you bring me another piece of pie please ?” “Lemon, orange, raisin, pumpkin, cheesi or brown sugar pie?” "Brown sugar, please.” She disappeared for a moment and tber returned with a face considerably elongat ed. "I am very sorry, air, but the brown suga pie is all—” “All what?” “Why, it’s all.” “Well, I don’t want all of it,just i piece.” “But we haven't any, its all—” It then dawned upon my bec'oudpd mini that when she said it was “all,” she moan it was all gone. ’ “Oh ! you mean it’s all gone?” “Yes, sir, it's all—” I have no doubt she thought I was a ver; dumb man. Well, maybe I am, but sh wasn’t a dumb belle by any means. I helped to celebrate St. Patrick’s day ii three separate and distinct towns. I liai , greens for breakfast, dinner and supper. If this letter should be slichtly disjointei and unconnected and have a sort of mac , caroni flavor, you will please blame it 01 three Italian players who are in the roon , beneath me. One harps on a harp and th other two do violence to violins. The music is not particularly musical , but it pierces the ceiling and the drum o the ear. And although they are doini murder most foul in a chicken-hearted way yet some old tunes they have been plsyini have set memory te work, and playei strange tricks with my fancy. Even nor they are playing “Old Black Joe.” Ah where am I ? Back in an old Virginia town, in a crowd ed hall, the orchestra consisting of threi pieces, has played a few bars of the air, ant out upon the stage 1 spe "Old Black Joe.’ I know my friend, and the burnt cork ragged clothes, bent form and tottering gai add very much to the effect, as in his riel velvety tones he sings : “I'se coining, yes. coming, for ray head ii bending low." And the grass grows green above hi.< grave, down in old Virgiuia, and the voice • « i i l » _t_ IS UllsiitMJ UII nubu, I»ut pwmrui»n mm viumi has caught it and held it. The tune changes and the tears come all unbidden as another half forgotten song comes up into my lonesome room and peoples it with old familiar faces. The violin has a voice and my heart hears it singing : “When the Roses Come Again?” When did I first hear that song" A girl with closed lids is singing in the dark. She is b ind, but like most blind people her soul is fil ed with music. And then a strolling player is singing it for me. One of my friends hears him, and the song becomes his own. The room is haunted, oh! friends of my youth, stay awhile and bring the echoes, happy echoes of the past with you. It is Sabbath morning in the old home church; there is a hush and then to the tune ol "When the Roses Came Again,” a rich, full voice is singing: “Jesus, lover of my soul, Let me to thy bosom fly." Dear old walls, of the dear church, you hold the echoes still. And the singer is still singing. The violinist, all unconscious of what he is doing, begins playing‘ The Kiss Waltz.” Whv, its old Jack, the dar key fiddler, aud his two assistants, he is calling out: “All Sh&ssay.” “All?” Where are they, the boys and girls of that merry party? I meet some of them sometimes, and we recall the old times. They are men and women now in the hur ry and bustle of life, but after talking ' awhile we turn back the pages and are young for a little while. Play on, Jack, play on, aud carry me back to the old Vir ginia shore. I don't care to dance, I am very happy, back here in the corner, wh re a voice is making music for me. and a pair of big, brown ayes, are beginning to light up my life. The music dies, the Italians have stopped. But the music of that voice still makes my life melodious and the brown eyes makes the sunlight and the starlight of my life. Dear reader, I beg your pardon ; it is not often your Keeter gets into the pathetic vein, but the bead grows tired of the "cap and bells'' sometimes, and the heart beneath tho mottled soul has its aches.
