Siiak.,fkahe has made general the idea that a name is of little moment, but praetieal experience has proven the con trary. Many a work of merit has failed through lack of an attractive title, while success has no less often been conquered b.' means of "an aptly chosen heading In addition, as far as possible, the name of an article ought to be, to a certain extent at least, descriptive. Especially is this true in regard to newspapers For all which reasons we have adopted the partially new heading under which the present number appears. And more particularly have we done this because of the fact that, as it stood before, name of the paper created a wrong impression as to its aims uid the purpose of publication. A3 we have repeatedly said, it never was our object to publish a merely local, county paper, but rather to furnish a class of reading which should entitle it. to a higher and wider sphere. Our efforts have consequently, all been directed towards that end and the success which lias thus far attended them, has been such as to warrant a change by which, it is hoped, the scope of our intentions will be more nerfeo'tlv expressed than was tue case under our lormcrjiauie. iu wuuubiuu we can express no higher wish, nor one that wilt better evidenccour full appre . c'ation of past favors, than that the .

On Thursday but little of inter est or importance was done. A few bills were passed and quite a large number of memorials and positions read. Among the former were, the Senate bill of Mr Howard to repeal section 17 of the law relative to Supervisor of Ditches and Towns, and section 15 by providing that ' owners of land through which the ditch passes shall clean out and keep it in re- t. .. : i. .. ir 1 1 r t : to authorize Countv Commissioners to provide suitable offices for County Sur veyors, at county seats,and Mr.W right's Senate bill to provide for the appoint ment of a State Superintendent of Jn ': surance, at a salary of $3,000, On Friday two communications were - received from the Governor one in re- lation to a project to connect certain rivers by a ship canal so as to have un interrupted navigation' between the .

The Senate Journal of February 16, which referred to the Saylor-Kemp contested election case, was taken up, and all the amendments proposed by Mr. Daugherty', Democrat, were voted down tinder the previous question. All was as serene as a sum mer morning. ' Mr. Gage was paired with Mr. Jeuiier, who was absent. Sat- ;'. 'unlay was occupied with the general run of routine business in the course of which a few bills were passed. Among . those however there were none of any save mere local interest, being for the relief or modification- of personal or ' county matters. On. Mondaya number of remonstrances and petitions, upon various subjects were presented and the following bills were passed Mr. Scott's I.'ouse bill to provide that where two or more free turnpike roads are so con structed that by one ending in another, , or by , one crossing another, or so that they form a continuous line, sueh roads may be consolidated.

In the afternoon, Mr. Beavis's bill, which provides for publishing the lists of delinquent lands In one German newspaper in counties where such papers are published, was reported back by the Finance Commit tee, and its indefinite postponement rec ommended. After discussion this mo tion was disagreed to, and the bill was laid on the table. Quite an active dis cussion was had on a report made from - the Committee on Corporations, who re ported back Mr.Corcoran's bill allowing building and loan associations to in crease their capital stock, and recom mending its indefinite postponement. , The report of the Committee was agreed to, and the bill was indefinitely post poned. Some flays ago Mr. Young's bill extending the term of office of city au ditor and civil engineer to three years was passed by the Senate, and went to the House, who passed it, and, on mo tion of Mr. Corcoran, so amended it as .- to provide that city sealer and weigher shall also be elected for three years. This afternoon the Senate took up the bill and refused to agree to the amend ment. It is now probable the House will ' recede from its amendments. Mr. Thompson, Democrat, offered a resolu tion asking Congress to so legislate as to make foreigners eligible to the office of President of the United States, but, on 1110..011 of Mr. Jones of Trumbull, it was laid on the table to discuss. Th Ju .iciary t omitiittee were discharged rem consideration of Mr. Putnam'--bill for this election of delegates to the Constitutional Convention so ameude-i as to provide for an election in April. The bill was made the special order for Thursday. Mr. Casement said he uau made tins motion because, in tne House, a similar bill had been pending all win ter, ana tor a while all seemed anxious to keep this question out of politics, but a few Kepublicaus nnl a sort ot caHcus and agreed to make it a partv measure, and so are determined to make the elec tion take place in November. He was opposed to such a thing, and wanted the delesates elected in April. On Tuesday the onlv transactions or anv intere were the passage of Mr. Sterling's House bill to amend the civil code by providing that where the defendant an swers 10 a parioi xne piainiiu s in-uuun, and fails to answer to another part, the court may render judgment on that part as to which. he is tn.aetauit; -ir. riaag s House bill amending the ditcli laws by providing that for the construction of a proposed ditch an estimate shall be made and that 'the work shall not be let on contract for a sum exceeding twenty per cent, on such estimate, and Mr. Wil son's House bill extending the jurisdic tion of justices in replevin cases trom one to three hundred dollars. The Houbb Resume for the week end ing Mardh hth. On Wednesday the Tem perance Law was the subject of nearly all the petitions and remonstrances pre- e.ited, a large p.opji tion ot tne mem bers having returned from their admir ing constituencies with their- pocKeis run ot memorials, me seconu re.uu.ig of bills occupied the greater part of the morning session. Thirty-one were read and referred to appropriate committees. A lew Dills were introduced, among which was one by Mr. Steele, authoriz ing the trustees-)!' Madison, Lake coun ty, to transfer unexpended town hall funds to the township fund. On Thurs day the only bill, of anything more than local interest, that passed was one to so annul section 376 or the elvil code that judgment may be taken for the uncon tested portion or a claim witnout delay, incident to so much of the claim as may be the subject ol contest or onset. At the afternoon session, the bill to require railroad companies to construct and maintain crossings at all streets, and on farms crossed by such raads, was con sidered. Mr. Steele moved to refer the bill to the Committee on Railroads, and urged the importance of having the measure considered by a standing com mittee of the House. The motion was not agreed to. After further skirmish ing the bill was ordered to be engrossed and read the third time, March Gth. Friday was occupied with miscellaneous discussion and the passage ot n few un important bills. Among these, howerer was one or general intoiest air. uau- gherty s senate Dill providing mat rec ords of recognizances taken before jus tices of the peace may not be made iu Common Pleas courts; and that witnes ses "recognized to appear, need not ap pear until the day fixed for the trial of preentiUou of petitions, the introduc- resolutions snd memorials, Monday and Tuesday were both occupied in similar routine business. On the last named day, however, Mr. Casement's Senae Dill to establesh pro rata charges lor freights on railroads, and to authorize prosecuting attornevs to bring suits in the name of the State for voilations of said law, was passed by a vote of eighty- one to lour. The trial of Peter Schwab at Hamil iltou, on the charge ot stuffing the bal lot box iu October, 1870, at the aliove plaee, ended in acquittal ot, the' defend ant. J his decision is looked upon with interest in political circles as it is dunn ed that it will effect the contest of L. D. Campbell's seat iu Congress. , DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA. The Senate ttesume for the week end ing Starch 5. Wednesday was taken up with tne exception 01 a snort time 111 the morning in the continuation of the debate over the resolution ot inquirv into the sale of arms to the French. The discussion was continued until seven o'clock in the evening. On Thursday Mr. Sehurz presented numerous memo rials from various parts of the United States, with 10,407 signatures, transmit ted from the city of Boston, protesting against any amendment to tne constitu tion incorporating therein the recogni tion of God or Jesus Christ, as an at tempt to overthrow the great principle of religious ltbertv on which this Gov ernment was originally founded. At die expiration of the mourning hour, the Senate resumed consideration of the resolution to investigate the alleged sales of arms to rench agents. Mr. Sumner made a lengthy speech in support of the resolution, but space prevents more than a brief synopsis ot its main points. JUr Sumner said : Besides the unaccustomed interest which this debate has excited, I cannot fail to note that it has wandered far from anv oricinal mirnose of mine. and into fields which I wave po desire to enter. I shall try to bring it back to the real issue, which ! hope to present with out passion or prejudice. And here, sir, 1 declare what is the only rule ot my life, that in what I say to-day there shall not be a single word which is not prompted by a love of truth and a desire lor justice. .But 1 venture to asK you to remember that there is something on this pianep Desiaes tne senate or anv Senator, something besides any high of ficials, something higher than any po litical party. I mean the good name of the American people, and the purity of the government, which must be saved from scandal. In this spirit and with this aspiration I speak to-dav. Mr. Sumner then referred to the late events in New York, and said there was a en- tor retorm now everywhere. Abuses were developed in the Ordnance office, and were the subject of universal scan dal. It was time something should be done to arrest, the suspicion thrown on our officials. His resolution had been met by various objections. He had been charged with introducing politics, and the allusions made to the Presidential election. He was earnest for reform in the Civil Service, and should always vote for every inquiry having that object in view. He had never heard of this matter till weeks after the meeting of Congress, and then from a distinguished native born citizen, who .had not been mentioned in the debate. He did not believe the introduction of the resolu tion would prejudice the German Km- peror on the San Juan- question, as the whole matter was known in Berlin long before the introduction of the resolution in the Senate,- He then referred to the Alabama- claims., and said tlat, if our demands against England could not be prosecuted except at the expense of the purity of our own -government, they were not worth the terrible price. He then turned to the pending resolution, and said that it presented the general question whether there is not sufficient reason for an inquiry into the sale of tsrins during the French and German war. This naturally divided jtself into two questions, first, relating to interna tional duty, and, second, relating 'to misfeasance on the part of our own of ficials, and involving what might be called the money question. Mr. Sum ner discussed both these points at length, and said an investigation could not be refused without setting at defiance the rules of decency and common sense. Pending any action the Senate ad journed after short Eeplies from one' or two other Senators. Friday was taken up with unimportant miscellaneous business, and the only thing of interest was a personal explanation made by Mr. Sumner in which he stated that his health would not permit his serving on the committee for investigation of the sale of arms to the French. He regret ted this, but the effects of injuries re ceived sixteen years ago still clung to him, and as he had been painfully ad monished within the last few day's, his physician had imperatively prescribed repose. Saturday was occupied in rou tine business'. On Monday a few unim portant measures were introduced, and after some time spent in considering the appropriation bill, the Senate, went into executive session, occupying the time therein till four o'clock, and then ad journed. On Tuesday Mr. Caldwell made a personal explanation, saying he had not yet seen the testimony on which was based the report which the news papers alleged had been made by the committee of the Kansas Legislature concerning charges ot corruption in the election of Senator in 1867 and 1871, but he had the positive assurance that no attempt had been made to prove that any member . of the Legislature had beeh bribed to vote for him. The whole pro ceeding was instigated by malice, and lesigued for political purposes. The State Senate had refused to send the re port to Washington, and the House had declined to ask the- United Siates Senate .0 order an investigation, but, as his vharacter was assail d, he would not st.iud upon forms. He shrank from no scrutiny, lie hurled back the charges against him with scorn and indignation. At some future time he would expose the outrage as it -deserved. Meantime he asked a suspension of judgment. Mr. Pomerov said the report referred to him, and asked if the Vice President had re ceived -any report from the Kauris leg islature, the latter replving tnat ne naa not. Mr. Pomerov then ottered a reso lution that the election of Senators in Kansas, in 1867 and 1S71, be referred to an investigating committee, to report what action should be taken by the sen ators and the Senate. The order ap pointing the committee for investigation of alleged sales o arms to the French came up, and after discussion the Senate proceeded to ballot for a committee. The following Senators -were finally de clared elected:-" Messrs. Hamlin. Car penter, Sawyer, Logany. -Ames, Harlan and Stevenson, ;Mr, Sehurz received 23 votes, Mr. Trumbull 19, Mr. Tinton 13, and Mr. Blair 12. . The HorsE Sesnme for - the vreek ending March 5th. Wednesday wrs oc cupied in a discussion on the bill giving an extension 01 the time to the state ot Wisconsin for the completion of the railroad from Lake St. Croix to Lake Su perior, the question being on ordering it to a third reading. Alter lurtner dis cussion, involving the question whether Colonel Scott, Prosidentof the Southern l'aeihe ana 1'ennsylvania central Kail road, was or was not opposing this bill, and on which opinions varied, Mr. Hol man moved to refer the bill to the Com mittee on Publie . Lands, with instruc tions. Agreed to yeas 102, nays 77. On Thursday- a considerable miscella neous business was transacted, but 110th- mg ol general importance or interest. Friday the bill for extension of the Wisconsin railroad grant came up, and great deal ot - hllibustering ensued thereon, An amendment was offered that a proviso be inserted that American iron be used 011 the road. There was considerable debate, and short hllibus tering speeches involving the tariff and protection as a side issue, the question being a reference of the bill with in structions to the Public Land Commit- j tees to report any time next week after Jionnay, and tnat tne uui, wuen repor ted, shall be open to debate and amend- j nient. The Instructions are tnat tne bin shall be amended so as to grant to the State of Wisconsin all ' land3 specified which would inure .to the Northern Pa cific Railroad Company under existing laws, by any location of its road, if tiiis grant were not -renewed, and to limit the grant to such legislation - as .niignt: be taken by the Northern Pacific railroad; also providing that the act shall not be construed Co enlarge the - grant of laud to the JNortnein Racine rtauroaa com pany or to authorize to select lands else where 111 lieu 01 any lands specineu in this bill;' also, that. the extent of this grant shall be determined by the Secre tary of the Interior and Attorney-General ; also, that coal lands be excluded from the" grant. 'The bill was so refer red, -rue wouse went into conilPittee oil tje Deficiency Appropriation bill. There was considerable discussion in the progress of the bill, principally on im provement ard extension of the Capitol grounds, ana on the utility and cost ot the storm sigpai service, po muen was said in favor of the signal service that Mr. Farns worth, who made au antago nistic amendment, withdrew it, remark ing that babes would soon be weaned according to these signals: The Com mittee rose without disposing of the bill. On Saturdav, in Committee of the Whole, from tweuty to thirty members were present. . A number of. speeches wepe made on miscellaneous subjepts. On Monday after , some little routine business, the House went into com mittee of the Whole on the deficiency appropriation bill, Mr. Stevenson in the chair, and after discussion 011 various matters embodied in tne bill, and with out concluding its .consideration, the Committee rose and the House adjour ned. Tuesday was occupied with the introduction of some bills, the making of some speeches and the discussion of some pending measures but no business of general interest was transacted, and at an early hour the House adjourned.

After brief salutations Governor Cooke was introdnced, and in a short speech welcomed the distinguished gen tlemen to the Capitol ot the t inted States, lwakura replied briefly, retur ning thanks for the .cordial welcome. and without further ceremony the en tire party entered carriages in waiting and were driven to the .hotel. The Em bassy were very favorably impressed with the reception given them in the House of Representatives, and they are disposed to regard ojir Government with greater, favor every day they remain here. 'They have now passed through the entire range of official receptions, and in a few days they will set about the business of irammg a treaty.

'llie result of inquiry is that there are no such serious complications with Eu ropean powers lis some of the newspa pers anu memDers ot congress -imagine or assort, on what appear to them sub stantial grounds. The most important of the pending questions is that between England.and tlie United States with re gard to the Treaty of Washington.

' NORTH CAROLISA. A letter from Scuffetown, North Car olina, gives a full account of Lowry's gang of outlaws and their depredations. Sixteen murders have been committed, and over three hundred robberies, and not a man lost to the band. They live in a swamp, and are a mongrel race, being a mixture of Indians, negroes and low whites. The leader of the band can neither read nor write. He expresses a willingness to leave the State, but his gang will not permit it. One of the sheriffs declares that the only way to rid the State of them is for the govern ment to declare the whole county nnner martial law, and draw a military cord on around it, with determined armed of- heers, and capture or kill the outlaws. IOWA. The temporary bridge across the Mis souri river will be abandoned on Mon day, caused by the pressure of warm weather and moving of the ice. The Union Pacific Railroad has completed the tracks on' this side of their bridge. and they will commence regular traffic of passengers and freights over the great highway immediately after the temporary bridge is abandoned. Excitement over the recent gold dis coveries is on the increase. F. D. Pease, Agent of the Crow Indians in north western Dacotah says the reports are far below the real facts of the case.

During the investigation it transpired that southworth compoun ded with naytien aoout a month ago and removed tne money irnm the box When finally brought into court it con tained nothing but the agreement above referred to. A full statement of the case will probably be sent to the Con- fressional Investigating Committee, udge Conley ordered. Van Nordan to be rearrested and brought before him.

The Governor, more man any one eise, ought to re spect and uphold the decrees of the court, for he is of them, an executive member. In this case he has so far for gotten his duty as not only to not assist in the execution of law, but he has con spired to defeat it. . Such- conduct can not be tolerated in any. country where the laws are respected, and it must be put down. What makes. the matter still worse is that the Governor is alleged to be a party to the very suit out of which this matter has arisen, although he has kept in the background, and he attempts to shield from barm those who have been working in his interest.

There was a tremendous mass-me-t-ing held at Oil city. Pa., March 1st, to oppose the mandates of the South Im provement Company, which proposes to control not only the price but the refin ing interests, and monopolize tlie entire oil trade. The morning session was spent in drafting resolutions in favor of another outlet for the oil regions. The meeting was not extravagant in dem onstration but means strictly business, and intends, in less than sixty days, to have an outlet which will be "free "of all cliques or combination?. In the after noon dispatehes were read from various portions of. the country encouraging the producers to tarry their plans through for new means of transportation. A dispatch from Buffalo states that Buffalo will meet the oil region more than half way with a railroad within four months. Erie guarantees a railroad that way in less time. The transportation would lie by way of water from Buffalo or Erie. Galbreath,of Erie, says he wonders the people of Pennsylvania do not go in a body to Harrisbnrg and overthrow Legislature which permits and encour ages tlie growth of such a powerful mo nopoly as the 1'ennsylvania Central Railroad, wtiieh wields greater power than the State Legislature. A large num ber of resolutions were adopted, among which it was resolved that no producer should sell any oil to the Sooth im provement Combination, and it was also resolved that a committee be ap pointed to see at what figures the pur chase of the Oil Creek and Allegheny River Road could be negotiated lor, as they oiler to sell the road at aless figure than a new road can be built and stock ed. Also, resolutions were passed and signed by a very large number of pro ducers to snut down ine wens on sun days, and to start no drilling of wells lor sixty days. This will produce a scarcity of oil, and operate to the ad vantage of producers. The meeting ad journed at five o'clock P. M., to meet at 'ranklin, on Tuesday, at ten o'clock A. M. Over two thousand oil men attended the meeting there. " - ' NEW YORK'.

The general impression which has prevailed, that the White Star steamer Republic and Cunard steamer Russia started from here an an ocean race, is regarded as confirmed by the fact that both vessels arrived at Queenstown al most simultaneously.

Upou complaint of the American Watch Company .- of Waltham, Judge Sedgwick granted an injunction restraining . a swindling institution known as the Geneva Watch Company from carrying 011 their fradulent traffic.

In the Stokes case, Mr. Graham wan ted the case to go to the jury on the facts. It would be highly improper in a criminal case for the court to substanti ally take the case from the jury by di recting a verdict against Stokes. There was no instance in which, in a criminal case, the court had instructed the jury to find for the people. - After Mr. Gra ham concluded, Judge Cardozo saul he would do either of twe. things, either let the jury find a general verdict, or in struct them to find a special verdict in favor of the-defence. He would instruct them to find the Board of Commissioners properly constituted, but all the other facts for the prisoner. He did not think it necessary that Mr. McKeon,of Stokc's counsel, - should address the jury but Mr. McKeou thought differ ently, and he proceeced in some re marks about exposing the deviltry in the City Hall, and turning to Stokes said : "Tills unfortunate man is as guiltless as any in this court room." This was greeted with scornful laughter from every one in tlie room, which caused Stokes to appear much frightened at the outburst of unfriendliness, and Judge Cardozo said he would clear the court if I such a demonstration was made again. Mr. McKeon continued his remarks till the adjournment of the Court. Switzerland. Notwithstanding the Assembly re fuses to accept the resignation of Dr. J.

There was considerable excitement in Kingston, Sussex county, over the sud den termination of the Republican meeting which was being held in that town. While Ogdcr, member of Parlia ment, was speaking, a party of Royal ists attacked the building wherein peo ple had congregated, broke the windows and dispersed the meeting.

The Times discusses the Alabama ques tion, and says that England will ,pav nothing save what she is required to in obedience to the decision of the Geneva Tribunal.

Extras of the evening papers appeared 111 rapid succession as the con firmatory details became known. Crowds collected in the streets discuss ing the news and awaiting further par ticulars. An omciai statement 01 the facts was promptly made in parliament. which, when it became known outside, greatly relieved the publie anxiety M hile the House or lxtrds was in com mittee discussing the ecclesiastical bill, Lord Granville entered and said he hoped their lordships would excuse tlie sudden interruption of the proceedings, but he had an announcement to make which it was desirable should be made without delay. He then " proceeded to state that, at halt-past, nve o clock, the Queen, returning from a drive,' had readied Buckingham Palace. As her carriage stopped at the gate a young man ran to her side and presented a pis tol within a toot 01 the oneen's head. The Queen bent her head down to avoid the shot, but the pistol did not explode 1 ne ienow in one nana held papers granting a release to Fenian prisoners, which he showed to the Queen to sign, threatening her at the same time with the pistol. He was instantly seized by the attendants and prevented from do ing rurther harm, it was then found that the pistol was unloaded and that it was of such primitive construction that if it had been loaded it probably could not have been discharged. Her Maiestv was very calm, .and showed the courage which she has often before exhibited. She has directed that a statement of the circumstances be immediately made in both houses of Parliament, in order to prevent exaggerated rumors. Lord Granville would not dwell on the detail nor point the contrast between the das tardly act and Tuesday's extraordinary exhibition of the nation's loyalty. The Duke of Buckingham briefly- expressed tne tnanKiuiness ot tne nouse at the es cape of Her Majesty from danger. Mr, uiaustone made a statement in the House of Commons similar to that of Lord Granville. The would be assassin was taken to the nearest police station. He gives his name as O'Connor, and is about nineteen or twenty years of age. His behavior in the station was wild and his language inconsistent. He boasted that he tried to reach the Queen on 1 uesaay during the procession. Sir Stafford Northcome. who was one of the Joint High Commissioners of the Washington Treaty, writes to the Lon don Globe excepting to the unfavorable comments of that journal upon the pro motion of Lord Ripon to marquisate for nis services on the commission, and says tnat tne ex-commissioners are si lent upon the charge of negligence slovenliness and other faults which have been charged against them from a disDO- sition not to further complicate the un- 101-tnate aimcuity which he trusts may not De satisiactorny solved. Minister Gladstone, in his letter to newspaper correspondent denying that he used in his speech offensive language concerning tne vvasmngton treaty at tributed to him, says : " It is an entire mistake to suppose that I have ever said that every rational mind must see but one meaning in the treaty of Washing. ton. coming would nave induced me to use such an expression. The limit of my assertion, as stated briefly, was and is as follows : I believe the meaning. of the treaty to be clear and unambiguous, according to any legitimate test what ever which can be applied. It this proposition I am, of course, ready to sustain in argument, but every other person is equally entitled to think, if he see cause, wnat 1 nolcl to be clear and unambiguous, as dark or doubtful, or that is clear and unambiguous in a sense contrary to mine. What I trust is that others upon close examination will not see cause to think any such thing. This point, a little time and patience cannot fail thoroughly to elucidate. Setting aside the remark which I do not use, which I think open to serve animadver sion, I have always understood, and still understand, that any man is at liberty to hold and to state, -with the utmost confidence, an opinion as to the mean ing of the document, and this I have done without being open to the charge of what I conceive to be a gross offence, namely: his presuming to restrain from others the liberty which he claims for himself. Indeed, "speaking accord ing to the usages and habits of English publie life I feel as if the utterance of such proposition's were not so much of truth as truism. If, however, this trutlj or truism be applicable to documents in general, it requires but a moderate share of modesty to adopt, in the case of document, such as' the treaty and its protocol. - ' .
