The aggregate par of the above twenty- J nix officers is $1!M per day. They are . all also allowed live cent* a' mile icoipg , to and from the capital. Besides all this, we have sixty-three f Delegates and twenty-three Senators at $4 per day; two presiding ollicer*, each H, at $0 per day; all receiving ten cent? J mileage. The whole will aggregate $356 , per day of per diem, besides mileage. i Allowing at least forty-live days, and 1 an average of 500 miles, the per diem will \ at least be $10,020, and the mileage $4,400; in all $20,420. Jf the session be ex- j tended, we must add $350 a day more. A moderate estimate of the Printing 5 would be $25,000, making the total cost c of the session $15,000, exclusive of inci- H dentals and contingencies. Economy ! and Reform, indeed !

Ueueral Jolin J. JacksonN Will, t |Parkcriburg Journal.) The last will of Gen. J. J. Jackson,deceased, after providing liberally for his j widow, and some contingent devises, f divides his large and valuable estate into . tenths, under certain restrictions; nine- . tenths going to his nine living children | deceased daughter, Mr*. Dent, upon their maturity, His Hons Jacob!], and Henry , C. are appointed executors. Much of the ( management of the estate is left to the discretion of the executors, no restriction being placed upon the sale of any of his ' extensive real estate interests except that ] they are prohibited from selling the ( Prospect Hill property for less than $75,- , tX)0. He leaves $o0, 'per annum to his pastor, Mr. norland, between whom there , existed strong attachments, so long as he remains rector of the 1*. K. Church, of ' this city; and in the event of a new Epis- I copal Church being built here, devises I S3,000 to that object. The will is drawn ( up in concise and unmistakable terms, and rellects the business sagacity and excellent judgment that characterized the General in his life time. 1 m i \ Iteiiuirknble Nlatrmcnt. 1 1 rota th* Charleston Journal.] ' House ok Delegates,) 1 NViiF.rj.iKo, Feb. 10,1877. j 1 1, Albert Allen, a member of the House 1 of Delegates of West Virginia,do certify that on the day before the assembling of i the present Legislature, at the St. James Hotel, in the citv of Wheeling, I had a , conversation with Henry 8. Walker, of Charleston, West Virginia, to the following effect: 1 asked Mr. Walker if with the Capital at Charleston, it was not easier to have kept it there than to have it moved back there? He said, "Certainly." 1 asked him then, why they didu't keep it there? He said: "My friends told them if they would elect me Senator thev would keep it there, but if they didn't they would move it, and thev did." I may not have used the precise language of Mr. Walker, but 1 have given the substance and effect, if not the identical language used. Albert Alucs. Sulphur is recommended as a specific for scarlet fever by a physician who writes iu the liondon hmetl of his "marvelous success" in using it. His treatment of cases was to thoroughly anoint tho patient twice daily with sulphur ointment, and give five to ten grains of sulphur in a little jam three times a day; sufficient sulphur wax burned twice a day (on coals) to fill the room with fumes, which were inhaled by the patient. Every caso improved under this mode of treatment, and none were over eight days in making a complete recovery. ^ Tn? report from the Mardi Qras pro fcdlnga at Wheeling on Tuesday is to the eliect that while the crowd in the city was immense and the patronage of the saloons was increased, the show itself was inferior to that of lastyear. The fact of the matter is, that the ancestors of the folks inhabiting Wheeling left their posterity a kind of sense that does not naturally take to such mummeries as tickle the fancy of the more light-headed people down South. We predict that there will be no more Mardi Gras in Wheeling.? Wtllfburg Htrald. Ora Church Choim.?Becently. several communications have appeared calling on our church choirs to use Han* ielian music more, evidently written j without a knowlege of what is going on 1 unongst our church choirs. In our ram* bleu into the different churches, we have 1 leard at 8t. Matthew'i several solot by Handel; at the First Presbyterian Church, juite recently, a solo and chorus from j Samson; at the Fourth Htreet M. E. Church several soloa and one or two shoruses of Handel's; at the Second Pre*. jyterian Church, we are informed, quite 1 i number of solos from the Messiah, rheodora and 8amson have been nuog, j ind so on. It is quite easy for any one ; to say, do so and so, but the doing is )ften very difficult. Music of the class J t'ferred to is of a'difficult character to [troperly perform, and in our humble udgment we feel like thanking the choirs tar not giving us indilTerent renditions >f master works. We deny the assertion that the solos, duets, etc., of Bach, Handel, Havdn, 8pohr snd Mendelssohn present little difficulty, the technical ana executive difficulties are great as a general thing, but in the slip* hod manner we mostly hear them, these lifficoltles are quietlv ignored. It will take a vast amount ol deeper study than nost of our singers have undergone to latisfactorlly sing for the people the lublime solo gems with which the orato* rios are filled, to sing them so that they irill really be understood and appreciated is they should be; but we are glad atten* tion is beingcalled to them,anu that some ire being sung. With the choruses, the litliculties are not so general, manv lie vithin the capacity of the average choir, >ut how weak these choruses would be srith but from four to eight voices. The rouble, too, with singing these choruses ty the average societies or choirs inm-o uuui me aiuiuni impoHSluil- ~ y of obtaining the proper bal- J nice in the porta, and another trouble fl s caused by the want of leaders for the ? mrts. Nearly every person who can ? ead naasablv well, or ban a moderate t knowledge of how to sing, will set up as t oloist, and will not come down to assist c n the chorus; no, for want of leaders in ' he parta, the singers get into a muddle, 1 inda want of satisfaction is felt by even 1 he unlearned hearer. How often doe* ? t happen that we hear a chorus sung by n w many altos na sopranos, perhaps a t lozen ha**, and two or three tenors, who * abor to make themselves heard against t ho mass of alto and bass. We need a t dcOnstr uction in this respect very badly, s ?tit do not despair of seeing this dim- h ulty vanish some day. I' It seems to be desired to produce the . inprcssion that only the oratorio music ' ly Handel, etc., is a tit model for us all 0 pattern after. Notably much of this ? tad secular origin, for many of the airs n various oratorios have' been taken 1 rotu operatic scores, particularly by Rosini and Ilandel. One of Rossini's masses lated 1819 was almost founded on motives I rom Tiis operas, and so delighted the [ Neapolitans that the enthusiastic priest a Haid to have told Rossini that "in spite if all your sins, knock with that and St, 'eter cannot refuse you." One can re:all many songs of an elevated character, or instance those of Schubert, Mozart' ind Franz, of a mournful and regretful Jiaracter, songs of a sentimental and lightly passionate cast which only re|Uire union with religious words to be I leard for the tirst time as religious mu- ' ic, to make them essentially a success. The air "lx>rd remember David" is Iandel'* air from his opera Sosarme, our of the choruses of the Messiah, are tut of his chamber duetts, etc; Although in air composed for one subject may l>e uitable for another, it is not always the . ase. 1 The mania for putting all sorts of hings into church music after produces trange incongruities. Once in England 1 certain conductor had the audacity to ^ ntroduco *in Israel in Eeynt sundry 1 nclodies, such as "Great Jehovah all idoring, fitted to the music of "I borrow Jupid's wings" and in our own churches, re hear the prayer from "Der ?reischutz, Fra Diavalo, Masaniello" lirs from Lucie,- Dun Sebaatran Faust, Don l'asgnale, Don Juan, etc. If pou listen to the Sunday-school songs you will hear strains reminding vou of 'Sherman^ March,"When Johnny Cornea Marching Home Again," ''Up in a Balloon, Boys," Down in a Coal Mine," and ather popular melodies of the day. The Rev. itowland Hill was reproached for Termitting the introduction of secular nelodies and wittily replied: ''But the . levil must not have all the good tunes." 0 V man of wit can always extricate him* t elf by a good joke; but that does not 1 latisfy the question of propriety, and it s astonishing our churchmen do not re- I ;ard this more seriously in the adaptaions made. Business Memoranda.?The Ashland RmVir says that the Norton Iron Works ihipped during the week ending Feb. 10, '2,434 kegs of nails. The nailjfactory s reported hard at work. The furnace s doing poorly. | Last year the Hanging Rock Iron lie;ion produced 110,000 tons of iron, which it $25 per ton, represent $2,750,000. I The coal miners at Pomeroy have struck or an advance of three-fourths of a cent , jer bushel, and all the salt furnaces,mills, &c., of that scctiou are idle on that ac:ount. IIow can bidders on the Batno job get so ;ar apart in their estimates? There were 'or instance, six bids to lathe and plaster ihe United States Court House at Par* *ersbnrg?the highest being $C,500 and Lhe lowest $3,G99.

New York, February 1G.?About half East one o'clock this morning, Joe Courn, the well known pugilist, shot two police officers, both dangerously. It apfears that Ofiicer Tobias, who erdered a tickman from the front of Coburn's saloon, No. 1286 Broaeway, was followed to the corner of Broadway and Thirtythird street by Coburn, who deliberately fired two shot*, one taking effect in the breast and the other in the arm of the officer.

When a candidate for high office ii no well liked and bo popular with the masses is to make hie defeat difficult in a fair and lionorable fight, mean and cowardly men ore not wanuog who delight in manufao* luring lies and slandering his good name. I here are alao those whoae selflshnesa prompts them to proatitute their honor, pervert truth, and Ignore right, for the lake of injuring a competitor in buainesi, whoae prosperity they envy, and with whoae business capacity they have not the talent to successfully compete in an honorable way. These thought* are suggested by the mean, cowardly attacks made upon tne and my medicines, by those who tmagine their pecuniary prospects injured by the great popularity which my standard medicines have acquired, and the continued growth of my professional practice. Narrow-minded practitioners of medicine, iiul manufacturers of preparations which 110 not possess sufficient merit to success fully compete for popular favor,have resort* ti\ to such cowaraJy strategy as to publish 111 sorts of ridiculous reports about the composition of my medicines. Almanacs, Receipt Hooks," and other pamphlets, ire issued and scattered broadcast ovar the and, wherein these contemptible knaves publish pretended analysea of mymedisines, and receipts for making them. Jomc of tliesa publications arc given highloundins names, pretend to be issued by espectablo men of education and position, 'or the good of the people?the more completely to blind the reader to the real ol>ect in their circulation, which is to injure he sale of my medicines. "The Popular Health Almanac" is the high-sounding iame of one of Uicse publications, which ontains bogus receipts, without a grain of ruth in them. Not leu devoid of truth ire those which have been published by ine Dr. L., of Detroit, in the Michigan Parmer, aud by other manufacturers of nediciues, Jin several so-called journals of Pharmacy. Ihey are all prompted by ealousy, and utterly fail in accomplishing he object of their authors, for, notwithstanding their free circulation, my medilines continue to sell more largely than ny others manufactured in this country, mil are constantly increasing in sale,,depite the base lies concocted and circulatcd iv such knaves.
