Khitou Dawson*, of the Preston Journal,
ia uii uncomfortable sort of a person to
have around when irresponsible and loose
jointed statements are beiug indulged in
by Democratic oratom. lie is full of facts
andrttatistics and is very apt to get thcin in
on a iligldy and poetic orator like Dan
l.ncaa. l or instance, Dan stated in his
Clarksburg speech the other day that it
iiislri this government five times as much
to collect its revenueasany of other government
in the world. Dawson proceeds to
stick the following pin in this statement:
"This i? a most egregious untruth. I n h\k
otJicial report, dated July 20, 1881', the
Commissioner of Internal Kevenue says
that during the last Bix years the expenses
of collecting the internal revenue taxes
was but "> and six-tenths percent, and but
[\\ jter cent bust year. This is less than the
cost of collecting in Great Britain even.
Jt that it costs lis about one-half as
iiiiicIi to collect the internal revenue taxes
ns it does to collect our State and county
taxes.
Foil the information of n reader of the
IxTKi.i.muxcKi: at Manirington we would
wy that the Ashland hoiror, which has
tunned so much blood shed and suffering,
jjrew out of a rape committed on three
young girls near that place some months
ago hy three scoundrels named Kllis, Neal
and Craft. The girla were subsequently
murdered hy them and the house wherein
their bodies were left set on fire and partially
consumed. After the finding of the
Mies one of the miscreants (Ellis)
was arrested, lodged in jiil and
there made a confession admitting the
erime and implicating Neal and Craft.
JI is confession so outraged the people Ibnt
a mob gathered and took him out of the
jail and hung him. llis alleged confederates,
Xeai and Craft, were duly arrested
and put in j.iil, and it was while they were
being removed from Catlettsburg jail,
under a change of venue, that the shootirg
occurred at Ashland.
As To-Motmow will bo Sunday, perhaps it
is just us well that the following item
stiouli! appear the day before. A special
to the Chicago Timet announces that Dr.
Scudder, of Brooklyn, 2f.'Y., has accepted
a call to Chicago, tor the following reason :
Dr. Seudder said his health demanded a
cluing!*, with less work, and that he could
use ihf accumulated material of his Brooklyn
service in a new charge.
This dispatch forma the text for the folio
ring short sermon by the Cincinnati
(hurtle of yesterday:
That is to say, he proposes to use in his
Chicago inilpit the sermons he had already
preached in Brooklyn, and. thus, while
seeming to work, find rest. This is a common
nnictice. and yet people wonder why
the'church dois not grow more rapidly
and * why theoretical Christianity is out
of all proportion to that which is practical.
The minister who makes a
habit of preaching old sermons, shifting
from one Held to another to enable him to
do so, i.s apt to be irretrievably liuried
in rutn, and certainly is not likely to keep
abreast of the time, and the church that is
fed on old sermons is almost sure to fall behind
in spirit and in numbers. "There."
said an old and influential pastor, "1 did
tlie best net of my life last night. I piied
?|iniy old sermons in the yard and made
a bonfire of them." If ministers think they
are doing their duty when repeating old
sermons, they would learn something bv
consulting the pews. If this is the church
work, the true policy would be to hire a
good reader. The best sermons uro in
print.
"I>oi.I.Alt oil," as it 1ms been alluded to
Jor swim time past, was at last reached yesterday
at Pittsburgh ; not only "dollar oil,"
but dollar ami live cents oil. It had been
a long time working up to this point, and
many believed that those who bad gone in
al ninety cents, expecting oil to reach a
dollar, would bo unloaded upon and perhaps
crushed at ninety-Hve by the syndiiiiii'
of large operators, wbo are supposed
to lie back of the market. Now that the
charmed figure, so long predicted and so
much suspected, has been reached and
Kissed, there-is no telling how far forward
Hie next stake will be set, but probably at
$1.-5. The average speculator always likes
a stake far ahead, and the big operators are
always careful to Bet it n good piece ahead,
m as to give greater firmness to intermediate
figures. There will probably bo a
{rreater disposition to speculate, now that
the once improbable point has
beoa passed, than there was
at tUty cents three months ago. There was
intense excitement yesterday at Pittsburgh
and large amounts of oil certificates changed
hands. The 'days of 1870 may possibly relH-.it
themselves,-when oil was carried up
! > four times its present price, but, on the
ttlmr tiUMil \iKi>iuiiri?r llm ilrnn in nrnnnrlv
arranged the victims will bo swung off in
iniM air. Just now it seems that thero is
not enough oil to go round, and one would
suppose the lust possible flowing well had
been struck, but whenover the drop comes,
tlie "visible supply" of oil will bo shown to
be fur in excess of Jho consumptive demand.
lit no department of trade does
hwtarv more surely repeat itself than in
speculation.

The reports to-day were especially assuring.
lu Connecticut, whore the Democrats
had made a rallynnder the leadership of
ex-Seuator Katon, the Republican managers
send word that there . is nothing to
fear, and that Eat on will bo hen ten without
ililliculty. John C. Xew sends word

question of bow many votes .Bill Eml'ish

in 1880. In Ueueral- Brown's district
there is practically no contest.
The New Hampshire dilliculty seems to
be rapidly lading out of sight, and the Republican
managers promise the regular
though not large majorities by which the
State is always carried.
It is reported from Illinois that the pros
iircui uru ior a ueieguion in Iho next
House composed of about the same proportion
of Kepublicar.s and Democrats as
at present. The chief contests against ltepublicans
seem to be in Davis', Marsh's,
aud Thomas' districts. -The Bloomiiigton
district, which was considered three weeks
ago to be jeopardized, is now reported safe,
while Allaire have taken such a shape in
C^onel Davis' district in Chicago that the
opposition is not considered of sufficient
significance to merit attention any further
than such as it will receive at home. Hen.
Marsh is reported to be on safe ground,
and while things are mixed as usual in the
Twentieth" district^ it is estimated that
Thomas' majority in the district will be
above 1,000.
Solid Republican delegations are assured
from Iowa, Minnesota and, Michigan. It
is reported that Senator Van Wyck's eccentric
opposition to Congressman ..Valentine
has resulted in nothing but thin vaporingg,
and that Nebraska will roll up a big
majority for the regular ticket.
In Kansas there is no trouble, the actual
contest being with reference to State mat:
tors and not aflecting the Congressional
contests.

Washington, Novembers.?In the midst
of the excitement over the coming ejections
in the Northern States, an important event
in Southern politics has been" passed with
scarcely a word. Probably not one of the
five hundred Northern' politicians know
that the Independent Statu tickct in South
Carolina, supported by Republicans,
Greenbackers and disgruntled Democrats,
has been withdrawn inconsequence of the
persistent bulldozing of which the Hour
bona havo been guilty. In their address
of explanation to the people, received here
to night ill a private letter, the' Indopeiul*
ents say of their opponents: "They have
attempted and propose to continue
an attempt- to suppress'' thec vote' of
the colored citizen of this State

Washington, November.3.?In the Sotehlo
am to-day tho defense offered to

not the object of A. M. Soteldo's animosity,
but that a? Soteldo was the first to make
public the star route matter, which reflected
upon tho persona who controlled the
Jtewbl'u'un publication reflecting oa Soteldo,'which
came out as a matter of retribution.
The Court declined to admit the
evidence, and the defenso announced their
coae closed. The government called several
witnesses in rebuttal, but nothing important
wjpj elicited.
John Lyons, a partner with Soteldo in
Urn Lyon House, testified to his business
relations with the deceased. Tho Government
closed its case here, and tho prosecution
pfle red the usual prayers. Mr. Tajrgftrt
opened the case/or the Government, claiming
that a clear.case of guilt against A. C.
Soteldo bad been proved.
Col. Christy, counsel ior Soteldo, followed
Mr. Tuggurt for tho defense.
Upon the reconvenlugof Court at the expiration
of recess, Mr.; Mitchell, of counsel
for defense, addressed tho jury on behalf of
the prisoner.
Upon the [conclusion of Mitchell's address
there was a slight demonstration of
applause, and Mr. James A. Jlurdette, one
of the audience, being brought before the
bar admitted he (had participated in the
demonstration. Judge AVylie thereupon
severely reprimanded Burdetteaud ordered
him .confined until 10 o'clock to-morrow.
The decision of tlio Court being received
with deprecating manifestations, the Judgo
remarked tlmt if the parties indulging
therein could be .produced aud identified
they would be visited by a severer
penalty than that given'to Jhirdette.

in its delivery.
The jury'after an absence of twenty-li ve
minutes returned, and rendered a verdict
of ''not .guilty." Assistant District
Attorney Tuggart then asked that hail be
fixed in" matter of the indictment against
the defendant for assault, with intent to

him what he had to say about the charges
contained iu the interview with Dr. Collins
of Minneapolis respecting the charges
against DeLong, of the Jeannette expedition,
and mote especially that part of the
interview which charges him (Melville)
with tho responsibility of the death of DeLong
and his comrades. Melville said he
had read the interview, as published
in the morning papers, but
did not- care to discuss the matter
at this time,* " especially through
tho newspapers, and that such discussions

a suggestion that anything be would write
on the subject would be laid before the
public, Melville replied that he would not
write anything nt present; that ho would
soon appear before the board when the
whole matter would probably be investigated.
Upou being pressed for an answer
respecting the foundations for the charges,
he said that be knew nothing about it, and
could not consistently discuss the matter.
The interview has caused much comment
and is the topic of the day.
In response to inquiries about Collins'
charges, Danenhowersavs tho statement is
an exaggeration of facts, lie admits telling.Collius,
who, he says, talked with him
in an excited manner, that thero was no

Washington, .November 3.?The estimates
published a day or two since from
the Postoflice Department are' likely to
prove a little misleading and do not represent
the true state of fuuds of the Postollice
Department. According to the report
of Postmaster .General, this year.it
will be shown that the surplus of the
Postoilice Department over its expenditures
will be about SI,000,000. This report does
not include this amount of money paid the
Pacific roads, for whose bonds the Government
is endorser. These roada are in
arrears ou interest to the government, and
the amount that. in nitiiiiuUv ??n?l >>?*?"
for carrying the mails is simply
taken to the Treasury Department and
credited to these roads. Under this method
no warrant is issued by the Poatoflice
Depart ment, and the amount noes upon ,
the books of the Sixth Auditor, who has
charge of the accounts of the Postotlice
Department. As a eonscquence, while the
Postolllie appropriation is charged with
this sum, amounting to over$1,000,000, the
report does not show it, as the Postmaster
General can only take the' figures of the
Sixth Auditor upon which to base his report.
lie makes a showing of $1,(500,000
surplus instead of 8(500,000, which is really
the amount saved; so, although the estimates
of the Postmaster General fchow' a
probable surplus of $3,000,000, the real
surplus cannot he over $2,000;000.

who has been retained as counsel by some
of the Mormon leaders in Utah, came to
Washington, and after devoting soveral
days to its preparation, tiled a long and
very vigorous argument with the Secretary
of the Interior, in which he urged that the
act creating the Utah Commission was
unconstitutional, and that all its acts, as
well as the co-operativo acts of Governor
Murray, of Utah, were arbitrary unsurnations
of power, threatening danger to the
kepublic. Since then the Com minion'
and the Governor havo gone right on as
though no argument had been; tiled, committing
more "acts of usurpation," chiefly
in connection with registration, designed
by Congress to secure a non* polygamous

remarked, lUttuito county is^ossuming u\ot?
ropolitaii airs in the ' manner' of 'crimep.
The latest occurrence cornea to liHrom the
peaceful village of Auburn, und that vicinity.
Somo very artistic rascals, so to speak,
went through that region buying up cattle,
securing about $0,000 worth. They purchased
100 head of Mr. John Kuiseley,
! and the remainder of other prominent citi- ,
/.ens ami cattle dealers. These swindlers
were .well tlxei} financially, and paid $3,000
caah in hand. For thu balance. $(5,000.
they gave checks on tho Weston bank.'
This was the lirst chapter. The next
.thing was to get the cattle out of the conn- .
try. They were taken to Fennsboro, in ,
great haste,and a special train, consisting ,
of a locomotive and eleven cars, was se- 1
cured. Tho cattle were shipped without 1
any hindrance.
The third and last chapter was tho pre- ,
senlation of tho cheeks by^thcliolders of
them, for'payment. Tho;ollk'er8bfi the <
bank ut Weatoit informed jt|ie (unlucky ]
holders, that hot only did the parties'whose t
names were attached to them, have no .
fundsou deposit, but they added further,
that they had never hcard'of my such' per- 1
sons. Thus ;the. holders were out six <
thousand dollars.worth'of cattle.* ? '. **&
1'robably this is the most audacious and 1
cunning piece of work of the kind ever
perpetrated in tliu Suite. . It not only; ,required

the swindle aro (liable .under ,

Mr. Cunningham replied in a heated man*

whereupon the.ex-Senator struck out from
the shoulder and planted . three blows on
Cunningham's face and head, knocking
him violently against an iron pillar in the
Court,:room,. and thence to the lloor.
Friends then interfered and the men were
separated. Judge Treat was terribly
shocked and, excited. , He characterized
the affair as tho most disgraceful
ono that had occurred in the Court during
the twenty-four years he had been on
tho bench, and notwithstanding Mr. Henderson
made an apology he lined him
twenty dollars. Mr. Cunningham in his
contact, with the iron-pillar had a finger
