As an inducement to new subscrib ers we will send the Rkgistkr from this time until the first of January fur fifty cents. We want all who are not now sab^rilwrs to try the Rkois tkr fur a few months, and make this low rate in order to pet them started. Persons at a distance rati send stamps or a postal note or silver. This offer only hold* poo?l f >r n^w subscriber*. Send alonp your names and y.?ur money. ThkkkV a wide irulf between this administration and the cirii-servjce laws. The question is, Can the Trea-urv stand four years of the present ad ministration? TllK bip plunderer- and the -mall ones are awaitinp their turn at the public treasury. Tiik harvest i- pa>t and the sum mer if ended, but the office-.- -kvr are not yet ail -aved. Thk-k hiph-iariiT times furnish a very suj>eriur home market fur the fanners? wheat ?j cent- a bushel. l>i Kixu the month of July 32,485 immigrant.- landed in this country. These fipure- -how the quantity? but what of the quality? Tiik gla-- mauufact urer- have just' completed the formation of a tru-t. They fray it is to make pri .*e? lowt r. but any one with common s n--know that it i- to s.^iee/e th~ people. Tqkrc HTr* many evidences that Cirii. Mahone wili be buried away out of sight in Old Virginia this fall. Hut all the same the Democrat- had better keep a sharp lookout for the willy old General. I HKUK have been a gr?- at many desertion? from the United State* army during the pa-t six month?. Rut why any one ?hould desert from the army while Tanner i? in the Pen sion Offi-e we caij't understand. I'hk annual encampment of The G A. R. is now in ses-ion at Milwaukee, and the Tanners, the Turtle.-, the 1 orakt-r? and other* of the same stripe are holding high carnival. The war is over s-.me twenty-five year.-, and all of them are brave patriots now. Is an interview the other day Com missioner Tanner said he had not yet made up hi? mind whether he would a?k for J lO.UdO.UMO or f 115.OOU.OUU for pensions for the next year. Presi dent Harrison's neglect to remove from office this notorious blower i more than a mi-take? it i.- a crime. Thk pension authorities at Wash ington have decided that because a man has been dishonorably dis charged from the army i- no r-H>oii w hy he should not have a pennon. The bummers and de-erter? and bounty-jumper? and eauip-follower are all invited to step up and take a grab from the Treasury. < "OMMISSloXKR M Asr?. who hails from this State, is a commi-?i n r f r revenue, sure enough, aud he pro pose? that all the family shall have a whack at the Treasury. Hi- brother. A. R Ma-on, has just been appointed to a fat place in tlie Revenue Depart ment. The Republicans are getting ail the spoils they can ? they are there for that purpose. Gkxkral S her max in a letter on Monday last said that the incidents of his march through Georgia during the war now come bar k to him in a humorous vein. We doubt if the peo ple who were burned out of house and home by him. and whose prop erty wa- looted by "Sherman's bum mer-."' can find anything to laugh at. even at thi- late day. C< >Minssio>ER Tannku ha- just made a new ruling to the effect that hereafter claimants for pension? need u rnish the evidence of but one sol dier beside themselves, instead of two. as heretofore required. We supj?ose it will not be long until the la-t bar will l*e thrown down and pensions granted to any good Repub lican applicant on hi? own testimony. Tiik present administration rt-fu-e? to allow three profes?or- for the new Catholic Universiry at Washington to enter this country, because of the contract labor laws. Yet the same officials allow Andrew Carnegie to im port hundreds of Hungarian? to take the places of -triking American labor ers. and onlv a few weeks ago fifty three imported gla-sblower- to^-k tlie places of other men in Pittsburg. It having been suggested that the people of the South make the birth day of Robert E. Lee a public holiday, variou- fire-eating journal- of the North have taken great alarm. They acknowledge? how they can help it?? -the virtues of the great commander, but a- he is a southerner and the |>eople who wish to honor him are southerners, why of cour?e no public notice should be taken of his great character. Bids were recently received at the Navy Department for the construc tion of several new war vessels, but in each case the bids were manv thou sands of dollars in excess of the limits set by Congress a- to tkeir cost. The ship-builders are smart enough to see that this is to be a very free-handed administration, and if they wait until Congress meets again they w ill prob ably get what they a-k. John Roach is dead, but many of his followers yet live. Thk Virginia Republican State con vention at Norfolk last week nomi nated (ieneral William Mahoue for Governor, C. C. Slemp for Lieutenaut Governor and W. S. Lurtv for Attor ney-General. The ticket is not a strong one, and it is not thought likelv that it will be elected. Rut General Mahone will receive the full support of the national administation and will be helped by guch tricksters as Quay, so it behooves the Democrats to do their very best. THE GUBERNATORIAL COUNT. TUe coin mittee engaged in can raw ing the vote for Governor of this State has almost finished its work, and the result may he easily foreseen. Judge Fleming received a majority of the legal votes east at the late election, and he will consequently he declared the rightful occupant of the guberna torial chair. General Goff and hi* henchmen are squealing srrently over the inevitable | reMilt. ami of course make desperate efforts to discredit the work of the committee. Goff has l?een nearly caught in his own trap. .\t the out let lie made known his intention of takiug advantage of every technical point and throwing out even* vote he could on technical grounds. Judge Fleming was opposed to this plan, and wanted the contest decided on its merits. In sell defense, however, he was obliged to use the same tu^ans th it <*off did. As a consequence the latt.-r ha- lost heavily in this very way, and now he is squealing pitifully about taking advantage of 'techni calities." Aside from these sort of changes, though, the Democrats only expected ' to -how gros-? frauds in Mercer and McDowell counties, where hundreds of negroes were imported from Vir ginia and made to vote the Republi- 1 can ticket. When these frauds shall have been exposed and corrected Judge Fleming's maj ?rity will be all- ' sufficient. A Terrible Collision.

A Lively Tussle with Burglars. Mr. i red Bates, sod of one of the propr ietor- of t he large j-\\ . lrv noose of Heimegan. Bates i Co., of Balti m >re had a thriiiing fight with binjg lar- the other night. Mr. Bates, who i- only 21 years of age, sleeps at hi fa:h 'r"s house in Park aveuue during the al-ence of the family at the --a shore, Besides him there are two servant-, who occupy the upper floor. At about 1 o'clock in the morning he was awakened by a nol-e like the rat- - tling of silver. He rem hied quiet until the sound was repeated. Then, throwing on hi- coat and arming him self with a revolver, he started down stair.-. and snently groped his way to the dining room. As he entered he I could just make out near the window facing the backyard the figure of a man in a stooping portion in the act of 1 1 . 1 i i ! _- a bag. Without a word, he levelled his revolver and fired at the thief* Before he had time to deter mine whether the bullet had taken effect he heard a noise in his rear. 11- w heeled around just in time to re ceive a slashing cut over his right shoulder which was intended for hi bftc-k. At the same moment the burg lar grasped the hand holding the l*e volver and dealt the young man two 1 more blows, both in a line with the jir-t. The weapon used he made out to b 1 a razor, aud. but for a morocco ? ca-e which he carried in his breast p eket. the keen weapon would have gone far into his body. As it \va< the book wa- cut half way through and his shoulder very much lacerated. Bates, who -till had hold of his re volver. though unable to use it on his assailant, fired in hopes of summon ing assistance. It wa- then that the burglar sudd* nly broke away and dashed out of 'lie house, pursued by the plucky young man. but in the darkness tie disappeared. His accom plices had previously made good their escape. Mr. liate> is prelt> ba.liy cut up. but not dangerously wounded From the fact that razor- were used it is thought the thieves were ii"gr.?es. It was t"..dark to distinguish the color of their faces. Maryland's Exposition. Elaborate preparations are being made for the great Exposition to open . at Baltimore Monday.

While there he fell in love with Mis- Rosa Buffi ngTon. -The ottier afternoon ail arrangements were liiad- for the marriage at four o'clock, but a difficulty arose. The lady was a Catholic, the groom u l'rotestaut. and each refused t<? be married other than by a clergyman of hi- or her own faith. At length the gentleman consented to be mar ried by a priest. The license was procured in Virginia, the bride's father confessor wa- sent for. and suppers telegraphed for to the Cum berland Hotel at Alleghany, where, at the end of the nine-mile stage rid ', t lie married couple intended taking the train for their new home. Then another trouble presented itself. The priest could not come, and another one wa- sent for in West Virginia. After sutne delay he arrived, but to the disappointment of the couple, he said be could not perform the cere mony under any license save one fr >m his own State. The wedding supper at Alleghany was counter manded by telegraph, and the gr >0111 s^nt over into West Virginia and obtained another license from that State. At midnight the cere mony was performed, and soon after ward they began their stage ride at night over the mountain road-. rea<-h ing Alleghany in the early morning, where they departed on the vestibule train, and are now safely in Norfolk." Wonderful Watches. John Huntington and his son. W. T. II. Huntington, of Cleveland, own two of the best watche- in the world. Tiiey are duplicates, and were order ed by the senior Huntington in 1881, in Geneva. Switzerland. He agreed to pay ?3.000 in gold for two watches tnat should combine every movement then known to the art of watch making. A description of one an swers for both. The ca-es are of pure gold: the works number four hundred piece-. On the large dja Is appear four smaller dails. The one at the top shows by a diagram of the sky the changes of the moon, the firmament being lapis lazuli, -tudded with golden stars The next dial to the right shows the leap year, the tiny hand moving around the circle once in four years and an auxiliary hand shows each month. <>11 the dial at the bottom is a hand, marking the quarter seconds, and one -howiug the day of the mouth. At the left, on the fourth miniature dial, is a hand pointing out the day of the week, and another the tide a it ebbs and flows. Around the large dial, besides the usual hour and min ute-hand. moves a second-hand and an extra horse-timur. so arranged that the distance between two horses at the finish is accurately noted in quarter second-. By pressing a button the past hour is struck on a deep-toned bell, one of a chime; the quarters are a more silvery note, and a rapidly tinkling companion gives the minutes. The watch is a stem winder. and one spriug furnishes the motive power. Where there is fric tion the pivots are set in rubies. State or Ohm. City of Toledo. } Lccas Coirxrv . s. s. 1 FiUkKK J.
