Among the latest endorsements re
eelred by the present administration are
those of Governor tVormotb, of Loui
siana a mtnjwhose rule in that State
ha been haroly loss corrupt and infa
mous than that of the Tammany Ring
In New York an J ex-Governor Holden,
late of North Carolina, whose official
connection with that State was severed
by impeachment. They declare uncon
ditionally in favor of gtlie renomiua
tlon of Grant'and commend him to the
u Brazes of the people. After all there
of afflinities.
Amid the strife and bustle of cease
less labor and constant struggle amid
the plans and calculations for prlvat
fortune and public growth amid the
boasts of future and financial success
bow many pause to tlynk of the never
ending stream that, year by year, flows
steadily from 'out our midst into that
silent city across the river? There lies
another Donulation. from us but not of
' us, quiet, peaceful, resting. No police
are needed Jthere, no physicians for
body or mind. With soft hued foliage
waving above their heads, or softer
HaKes clown-dropping a manue oi purest
white, they rear no tneit nor wrong, nut
. sleep in silence" undisturbed. There is
. no need for impatient longing to share
Time will bear us all, upon the mighty
current that beats against the shores of
Eternity's domain but might not an
occasional pause for contemplation of
. .b.U common goal, bring softened
-thoughts and broader charity? Might
not an hour, given now and then to
memory or to thought of the inevitable,
go far to smooth our path in life and tend
ta soften the acerbities of the struggle
H too bitter in any event which lies
between each oneand linal test?
Vlgoroa lea;ilatiau.
The accepted apothegm that "the
world is governed too much," will not
apply in any great extent to the present
session of the Ohio legislature. There is
one great measure of public good that
they have never shown an unwilling
ness to consider, and that is the motion
to adjourn. The promptness with which
they have ever listened to this proposi
tion is thoroughly commendable. It
suggests the bon mot of the English
' Bishop who, when asked by his curate
' how he admired his sermon, replied that
, there was one excellent passage the
passage from the pulpit to the vestry.
Nevertheless, even in this good work,
they have shown a lack of thoroughness.
They have lost several very Valuable
Opportunities. For instance on Thurs
day morning, the 14th, they took their
regular four clays vacation, but failed to
gather a quorum on Tuesday, and for
ouzht we know to the contrary, may be
failing to the present moment. Such
adjournments are enforced, and not (le
- serving of the credit that attaches to a
regularly planned motion. If they iiad
had a quorum on those two days they
might have accomplished more of them.
; Aside from this praiseworthy work,
they seem to have done little. They
elected a United States Senator, and
since then have been devoted to elec
ting a President. - Some little-reading of
petitions, some amusing passages of
blarney, and some few special bills,
ballast the more important business of
adjourning. Such a trifle as the redis
ricting bill does not merit much atten
tion, and seems likely to go over till too
late to affect the coming election. A few
more -patches have been added to the
' code of criminal procedure, until those
antiquated individuals who had some
affection for the principles of tho com
mou law, can amuse themselves by
hunting the statute for any olden relic,
with the affecting consolation that the
; search will never be ended. An attempt
was made, too, to give us a game law
. which savored of the English Forest
Law previous to Magna Charta; but as
i certain people had prejudices against
retrograding to the middle ages, this
; most worthy measure fell through.
There Is little else, of the present ses
sion, that occurs to us. . Perhaps they
. would have done more If there had been
i anything to do. . It is not to their dis-
' credit if they had but one talent,for they
! ' certainly . used no napkins. On the
' whole we should be satisfied if they
would only conclude to adjourn a little
- more so.
Spiritualistic Science.
At one of the great head-centres of
spiritualism in Boston, Mrs. Annie Lord
Chamberlain has or late presided over
hosts of disembodied beings to the great
delectation of numerous, spectators
: Spirit hands, faces and forms have ap
peared from fme to time at the window
.of a Cabinet, gleaming through the gloom
of a darkened room, and flitting to and
.fro .in the genuine style of orthodox
' spooks and goblins. We have watched
these tilings an wondered with the rest
We have not spent sleepless nights in
; conjecturing the manner and means, be
ing thoroughly satisfied that it was done,
and that the spectators were done also
If reason were against the thing, why
so much the worse for reason; we were
' as superior to such a trifle as ever old
'Betterldge and his daughter were. We
."' had as supreme a faith that these things
came, as Topsy had that she "growed
It is just possible we may have known
' fellows who sat beside a comely medium
In the dark seance, and felt spirit arms
steal round his neck, with the sweet
'touch of a vanished hand." "Spirits is
spirits" says Josh Billings "and a man
' whokenttaik spirits without holding hiz
breth haz wasted hiz ednkashun."
We feel a glowing satisfaction in hav
ing bolted these tilings with our eyes
shut, so to speak ; and a proportionate
; grievance against the irreverent individ
ual who attempts to explain them. No
matter that lie speaks as one having au
thority, and gets his information from
the fountain head; it seems profane to
pen such-tender things to analysis,
We look, therefore, with much disfavor
upon the following from Mr. Thomas R.
. Hazard, who has interviewed a spirit to
, find out the manner of performance:
'. The refined matter out of which these
apparitions were formed or at least ren
dered cognizable by mortal sermon was
gathered from the individuals composing
the cirtla. each contributing to the supply.
The raw material was then collected to
gether in a mass us tiie housewife, having
kneaded the dougli for bread, prepares it
'.' to be rolled out into any form desired and
a certain portion (sufficient for the mani-
' testations about to be made) divided from
Jt. This portion, by tlio subtle toree of
spirit ehemiatrv, whs deposited in solution
in a vapor or atmospheric bath over the
beads of the circle, lust as the copper Is
held In solution in the bath ot the battery
for electrotyping. Immediately the spirit
hand or other object is plunged in the bath,
and as l the case with the copper upon the
' plate In the process above referred to, the
eurthlv matter in solution becomes precip-
' Hated upon the surface of the spirit object
to be shown, and the form thus coated
with said earthly material becomes tangi
ble and visible to physical senses."
It is sad, we say, to see our bread made
: dough lu this way. This spiritualistic
jpastry is not poetio. We, do not want
but spirit bauds plunged through this
layer of puff paste, emerging all covered
with flour and crust. Dyspetic natures
like ours cannot stomach this unlearned
dough. People have prejudices, you
know, and a refined renribility does not
thoroughly appreciate the "precipita
tion of earthly matter" upon hands
which take familiarities. Of course we
see how doueh can float in the air, when
it is kneaded, but we have our opinion
of a spirit that goes through it instead of
going around.
Xo, brother Hazard, this .thing will
not do. If Mrs. Morrison saw spirits in
the cabinet "mixing Koraething - that
looked like dough," it was nierelv a ce
lestial manna for their own consumption.
fcve wore fig leaves, and itnunel was
adorned with a spear,but there is no such
reeord of spiritualistic immodesty as ap
pearing clad in paste. Coming in con
tact with earthly forms, it would be
likely to stick, and the spectacle would
not be pleasant for the sun to rise upon.
Conceive, too, the inconveniences of sit
ting down upon loose articles of person
al property. It cannot, no it cannot be
possible that those tables which. move,
and those chairs which shoot wildly from
their spheres, have become momentarily
pasted to the tender epidermis of recum
bent spirits. Forbid it all hopes of fu-'
tilrity, all touching fancies of our latter
ends! This theory must not be admit
ted. It is false, impious. It is not the
true article it is nothing but paste.
Wkst Jltkn s Tralttr!
" President making" is by no means
a trivial matter. On the contrary, it is
one of the most important that apper
tains to the posltionof an American cit
izen. For this reason, discussion and
criticism are not only the . priviledge,
but the duty of every, man and every
paper throughout the country. . Theo
retically all admit this as true practi
cally party politicians ignore it and seek
to prevent that free expression of opin
ion which alone can bring out the will
of the people. . With them criticism of
an Administration, means defection from
party allegiance, and no less denuncia
tion is visited upon the one than upou
the other. In consequence of this, the
query at . the beginning . of this article
seems to us a most pertinent one. .
Admitting that there is some proper
time and place to agitate public abuses
with a view to their removal ana the im
provemeht of the administrative ma
chinery, the question naturally arises
ichen, Certainly it must be either before
orafter election. If the former, we are
at once met by the assertions of the po
litical managers, that this will imperil
and injure the party, and by the sug
gestion to wait. If the latter, expe
rience has proven that remonstrances
then fall on leaden ears, and that no
practical reform will be inaugurated by
men secure of their position for the pres
ent and backed y the national disincli
tion to waste time on what would 1 lit
tle else than crying over spilt milk.
What then is to be done, by a Republi
can, for instance, wno is uissatisneu
with the administration who either
has lost confidence in the President or
who believes that, even if personally
pure himself, he is .surrounded by and
and Influenced by men of whom the
same cannot be said and whose influ
ence would be strengthened rather than
weakened by re-election?' That there
are many true and loyal men belong
ing to the Republican party who feel
thus, none can deny. What then are
they to do?
Clearly they ought not to go over to
the Democracy for none would look for
relief from that source or doubt that a
Democratic Administration would en
tail endless trouble and confusion. The
only answer that remains then, is that
reform must besought within the party.
But what shall be the methods adopt
ed ? Is there a party leader or an ad
ministration paper that can or will give
any information upon this point? They
all agree upon what must not be done,
but maintain perfect silence as to what
ought to be done. Nominations or plat
forms differing from those of the party
must not be advocated because it threat
ens to make a split and thus bring the
Democrats into power. Criticism or
condemnation 'of the administration
is an attack upon the Republican party,
and any attack upon the Republican
partv endangers tiie couutry and ren
ders imminent the disaster of bringing
the Democrats into power.
The only fit time to discuss the fitness
of a President for re-election is during
the last year of his term. This is the
time when public attention is most called
to him and bis record, and this is the
time when, having already perform
ed ' the duties of bis office for
three lyears, he is best able to reply to
any unjust accusations. To do this any
sooner would be an injustice to him to
do so any later would be useless to the
people. But anyone who makes the at
tempt Is at once accused of foul play. If
a person attempts to lay before the pub
lic the shortcomings of an administra
tion, he is at once accused of seeking to
prevent a renomination, as if this were
sufficient reason why he should not be
listened to, when that fact is the only
reason for speaking at . all. The logic
that is used is peculiar. To demonstrate
the President's unfitness is to attack the
Administration to attack the Adminis
tration is to attack the party to attack
the party is to work for its defeat to
defeat it is to ruin the country by throw
ing it into the hands of the Democracy
The truth is that all such attempts to
muzzle free discussion are simply the
gags of political demagogues. A. man
may be a true Republican and yet disap
prove of acts or individuals. Leet and
Stocking were both members of the par-
ty, but not even the veriest hack would
claim that it is necessary to the party to
support them in their frauds in the New
lork Custom House, is either is any
man necessarily a renegade and traitor
to Republican principles because he op
poses the re-nomination of Genera
Grant. Attempts to show that he is not
a good man for the place, or that some
one else, would be, are : not, by any
means the base and contemptable acts
that so many party papers and party
speakers : would seek to make them
This discussion and ventilation of views
and opinions is simply the only way by
which Reform can be secured, and just
before an election the only time when it
will be followed by any practical good.
If investigations disclose no grounds of
complaint, they will only redound to the
credit of the administration if well-
founded thev can need no defense other
than the reform compelled by them.

in the next number it is our fortune to
receive. In the present number there
is the frontispiece which has been
promised quarterly, and which we are
sure every one must be pleased with.
The artists' pencil and the engravers'
tool, have here presented one of the
most charming fancies in "Morning

by Emslie, beautifully engraved by
Henry Linton the oiher. 'The Hud-

are wonderful examples of what enter
prise and trenius can produce, and are
as fine specimens of art as can be found.
Of the smaller cute,"The Little Mother"
by John a. Davis, is conspicious as one
of the very best specimens of figure

American pencil. .Mr. Davis is consci
entious in every detail, and lovers or
true art will look to -his future with the
greatest expectation. Pictorially, this
number justifies the bighest commenaa
tlon, and indicates a fixity of purpose on
the part of the publishers, that augurs
well for American .Art. The -literary
department is very well sustained, and
we think, for excellence and variety ,this
is the best number yet issued. Among
its stories, which are always good, we
may mention "Mr. Maximilian Morning-
dew's Advice," a curious psychological
study, by Julian Hawthorne; "The
Story of Coelio," a romantic incident in
the life of a famous Spanish painter, by
R. B. Davev : and "The Puddle Party,"
by Lolly Dink's Mother, a childlike
fantasy, which Hans Andersen himself
might have written. The more solid ar
ticles are a valuable paper on "Ancient
Pottery." by S.F.Corkran. formerly of
British Museum : "On the Eastern Shore
of Virginia," a pleasant sketch of Ameri

and "Cosas tie jspana, an lnteresnu

editorial on "Poets' Rivers," which was

Thb Senate Betume for the weekend-
tug jfarcA ltflA. un Wednesday Mr.
Jones or Trumbull introduced a bill to
apportion the State into Congressional
Districts. This makes the third bill of
the kind, two others having been intro
duced, some time since, by Messrs.
Stlmpson and Thomson. . There were
also a few local bills introduced, and
seven or eight others, mostly House
bills, were passed. The next day, Thurs
day, was another illustration of the pol
icy of "masterly inactivity" which pre
vailed in the councils of the State. No
thing whatever was done beyond the in
troduction of one or two bills and the
reading of a few petitions. . Adjourn
ment followed as a matter of course, and
the Senate took advantage of the regular
recess to go home until Tuesday. At
this date, howeverj they had not return
ed in sufficient numbers, and the Senate
again adjourned for want of a quorum.
Thk House. liesume for the week end
ing March iatA. Wednesday was occu
pied in routine business, with nothing
done beyond the usual memorial busi
ness and the bringing in of a few new
bills. Among the latter was one by Mr.
Steele to authorize the commissioners of
Lake county to levy a tax to build a
bridge across Grand River, between
Painesviille and Fairport, in place of one
destroyed. Thursday was another day
distinguished by being one in which no
thing was accomplished beyond the usual
fillibustering. The adjournment ex
tended until the following Thursday, at
which time no quorum was present, and
the public business was forced to go un
done through the absence of those whose
duty it is to do it. This absenee is get
ting to be the enrse of this General As
sembly. There is scarcely a day passes
but what a dozen or more members are
absent, some at home attending court,
some out on pleasure parties, and some
atending to other business. This natur
ally delays business, and makes members
who are present naturally indignant that
they are .forced to remain her White
others are attending (o their private af
rairs. ine adjournment once in three
weeks is productive pf good results, inas
much as it allows members to go home
and consult personally with their con
stituents, relative to matters pending be
fore either branch of the Assembly, but
when these respites are taken it should
be enough to satisfy any reasonable set
of men, and they should return promptly
to their duties. There are some mem
bers who favor rescinding the resolution
for the adjournment once in three weeks,
on the ground that the session should
close at as early a day as possible, say
the 16th or lath or next mouth, but it is
said the majority of members of lioth
Houses say there will be no hope of clos
ing the session until near the last of
April, and that there is no use to en
deavor to make political capital at the
risk of neglect of business. It is prob
able there will be ati effort made this
week to cut the session off, and settle
on some time when it shall adjonrn.

DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA.
Tax Senate liesume for the week end
ing March 19th. Wednesday was for the
most part taken up with the discussion
over a measure introduced by Mr. Conk-
ling, who called up his resolution asking
tne president to communicate to tne
Senate the number of recommendations
for office made by the Senators from New
York, Illinois, Missouri and Nebraska,
and proposed to add to it the following :
And whether appointments or requests
have in any instance been made at the
suggestion or requestor any third partv
who has acted as a go-between either of
said senators and the appointing power,
to represent or in any manner cause it
to be understood that such appointments
or removals would be agreeable to or
were desired by any Senator, and if so
giving the names of persons who so rep
resented or Caused it to be understood.
But without reaching any conclusion
the Senate, late in the day, took up the
legislative appropriation bill and con
tinued its consideration until the hours
of adjournment. On Thursday, after
some discussion over the future order
for business, the bill of the previous day
was again taken - up, and after some
amendments was finally passed. ,Tlie
tariff bill was called np, but no action
was taken in regard to it. On Friday
morning, Mr. Trumbull rose to a per
sonal explanation, and sent to the desk
to be read an extract f rom a Washington
letter in the Republican Banner, pub
lished in Michigan, charging that he
had pocketed a $10,000 fee in the AlcAr
die case in the Supreme Court, having
been employed for the United States by
President Johnson, and charging fur
ther that his vote on the impeachment
trial was influenced by that fee, and call
ing for an investigation into the matter
by the Senate. Mr. Trumbull said that
during seventeen years' service in the
Senate he had not before risen for a per
sonal explanation, although he had of
ten been misrepresented and calumnia
ted. He denounced the charge as mali
cious and preposterons. He produced
letter showing that he was employed
not by Johnson but by Secretary Stan
ton and General Grant two months be
fore the articles of impeachment against
Johnson were prepared, and that the
fee was fixed by Secretary Stanton. He
argued that his employment in the mat
ter was perfectly legal and proper. He
charged that the letter was writ
ten by a man in the employ of the Gov
ernment, and intimated that the charge
had been made for the purpote of injur
ing him because he was hostile to the in
fluence by which that man was kept in
office. He also referred to the resolu
tion offered by Mr. Chandler somo time
ago, for an inquiry whether or not any
Senator had taken a fee from the United
States contrary to law, and said that
when the authors of these slanders dis
covered that he had been employed by
Grant instead of Johnson- they would
not ask again for an investigation, but
like slimy snakes would crawl to their
rdens. Withont any . action, however.
being taken the tariff bill was taken up
and the debate opened by Mr. Sherman.
Space prevents any extract or attempt
at recapitulation in regard to his re
marks. After a long and careful review
of the subject in which he brought out
the statistics upon which they relied on
justifying reductions he discussed gen
eral principles of protection and free
trade, claiming that the former should
be maintained as essential to the foun
dation of our national prosperity, and
closed by stating that the Committee on
Finance was of the opinion that now,
when so many taxes are repealed, there
ought to be a general reduction of du
ties on textile and metalic fabrics, and
that this reduction should be at the
rate of ten per cent, which Is about the
rate of reduction on tariff duties. At
the close of his speech the Senate ad
journed uutil Monday. That day, when
it came, was taken up with miscellane
ous matters of no general interest, be
ing mostly in reference to personal bills
or resolutions. On Tuesday there was
the same general, desultory, talk over
various measures, iu the course of which
it was finally agreed that the final vote
on the Chicago relief bill should be ta
ken the following day.
Thk House Resume for the rceek
ending March 19th. On Wednesday
after some little general business the
House went into Committee of the Whole
on the postofiice appropriation bill, the
pending question being the amendment
increasing the subsidy to the Pacific
Mail Steamship Company. The discus
sion of this measure occupied all day
but at last without disposing of any of
the pending amendments, the committee
rose and the House adjourned. Thurs
day was taken up in the discussion of
land grants and the passage of some mi
no bills. On Friday the great oil-question
which has been cogitating the
Cleveland and Titusville refiners and
producers was ' brought . into national
prominence and on motion of Mr. Sco
field the Committee on Commerce was
Instructed to inquire into the nature, ex
tent and objects of the South Improve
ment Company, alleged to be seeking a
monopoly in the transportation of oil
from Penn. to the seaboard. The bill
granting lands to the St. Crois and I -ike
Superior Railroad was again taken up
and after protracted debate, and the
adoption of several amendments was
finally adopted. Saturday was for gen
eral debate only. Monday was spent in
a general whilly-shallying without ac
complishing anything. On Tuesday
there was considerable miscellaneous
business transacted in the way of pri
vate bills and general work and at three
o'clock the House went into Committee
of the Whole, and debate on the Pacific
Mail Subsidy was resumed, being re
stricted to one hour. Without reaching
any action the committee arose and the
House adjourned.

There was considerable excitement
in political circles growine out of the
revelation made by Senator Tipton, at
Cincinnati, that Dawes, Garfield, and
other Hepublicans are secretly opposing
the renomination of Grant. "Dawes has
already written a letter denying it, and
Garfield will do likewise. It is under
stood that the authors of the Cinciuniti
movement are prepared to make some
disclosures about secret conferences that
have been held here, which will show
that several prominent Congressmen,
supposed to be for Grant, have been
casting about to see what chance there
was oi defeating him. They out not
wish to commit themselves until they
could see their way clear to successful
opposition.
new Hampshire.
The CAronfrie has returns from all
but eight towns, which last year threw
less than 800 votes, resulting as follows:
Straw, 38,568; Weston and Si"attering,
37.338; Straw's majority, 1,230, which
will probably be increased. Rocking

In the United States Circuit Court, in
the case of Judge Price of Louisville
City Court, indicted for refusing to re
ceive negro testimony in his court, prior
to the enactment by Legislature of a stat
ute admitting such testimony. Judge
Ballard dismissed the case, saying that
Judge Price had rendered a decision pur
suant to the laws of the State of Ken
tucky, under which he derived his ju
dicial authority, and his decision was
doubtless made iu good faith. ' He said
he did not think thatjCongress had power
to enact a law to punish him for so
doing.

NEBRASKA.
Omaha has called a State convention
of Nebraska men to take steps to force
the railroads terminating iu Council
Bluffs to recognize Omaha as the east
ern terminus of the Union Pacific, and
the place where transfers are to be made,
and the papers suggest an inter-State
war if it comes to that. The excitement
is intense on both sides. The Omaha
and Northwestern road proposes to ship
goods to and from the Kast via Sioux
City, a route sixteen to twenty hours
longer than by the direct lines to Coun
cil Bluffs. The transfer boats are busy
transferring goods from the Iowa roads
to the Union Pacifle with regularity,
promptness and dispatch. No delays
are experienced, although the completed
bridge stands idle as yet.

IOWA.
The. various efforts which haye been
made to turn a large tide of immigration
into the Black Hills, Dakota, for the
purpose of developing their wonderful
mineral and agricultural resources, has
had the effect of thoroughly waking up
the people of the territory to the great
importance of this movement. Several
large and enthusiastic meetings have
been held in the southern part of the
territory during the past week. An ad
journed meeting will bo held at Yank
ton, at which a plan of action will be
decided upon. A committeeof thirteen,
appointed at the meeting last week, have
prepared a petition asking for partial ab
rogation of the treaty with the Sioux In
dians, which will be circulated at once
and forwarded to Washington.
The unanimous report of the govern
ment directors, deciding that Council
Bluffs aud not Omaha, is the legitimate
terminus of the Union Paciflc'Railroad,
has created a very marked activity in
real estate and business matters at "this
point.
LOUISIANA.
The Picayune says the news of the ap
pointment of J. M. G. Parker as purvey
or of customs, vice Longstreet, has fallen
like a bombshell among the ranks of the
colored Republicans, and that Senator
Ingram and Representatives Burch and
Lott have gone to Washington to protest
against the imposition of another carpet
bagger upon the people of Louisiana.
The feeling among the colored Republi
cans at this appointment is said to be the
more bitter because they have been led
to believe that the corruption known as
carpet baggers was defunct, and had been
sloughed off from the bone, of conten
tion ironically known as the State of
Louisiana. The state of Parker is fla
grantly carpet-baggish in its character.
It is asserted that he resides with his
family in Lowell, Massachusetts, that
his residence in New Orleans has been
little more than nominal, aud that since
the spring of 1870 he has not until a few
weeks ago put in an appearance in his so
called adopted home.

PENNSYLVANIA.
A large meeting of oil produces, brok
ers and "capitalists was held Saturday af
ternoon to adopt means to successfully
cope with tiie Southern Improvement
Company, it is proposed to divide the
Pennsylvania fields into sixteen districts,
the owners of welU to unite under a
charter fur protection, and all crude ma
terial to pas-iiuo the hands of and be ;
sold by the organization, the capital to
be one million dollars. A dispatch from
New York under date of the 17th says,
that the Committee of the New York Pe
troleum Association has returned from
tiie oil regions, and reports the producers
in earnest in opposing the attempted
monopoly of the Southern Improvement
Company, and each District Committee,
of which there are sixrecn. refuses to
furnish oil to that concern, even a con
tract having been broken in one case by
the producer. The producers can, it is
claimed, hold but four months, but need
more assistance from capitalists, and of
fer as security the oil in tanks, which is
secured by insurance and guaranteed
against leakage. The object of the
Southern Improvement Company is said
to be to sustain Cleveland refineries and
control the market by raising freight
charges on all producers not selling to
the monopoly. They already begin to
feel the opposition, as oil has been com
ing here for several days which they
feared to interfere with", owing to the
strong feelings iu the oil regions. It is
quite possible the company will be or
dered to close up the tanks "and leave the
oil regions altogether. During the pres
ent combat work is dull, and thousands
of workmen are idle.
NEW YORK.
Affairs at the Erie railway officers
have settled into ordinary quiet. Gould
said he was glad to be out of the Erie
presidency, the salary of which did not
pay for the pepetual harassing which
came with the olliee. He will soon re
turn to Wall street. Shearman aud
Field are retained by Barlow as associ
ate counsel tor the Company. It is un
derstood that noiiction will lie taken in
reference to Lane's alleged contempt of
court iu destroying Judge Inghram's in
junction. A. " D. Williams, of the com
mittee representing the American RtoeK-
holders. sneaks ot an minnction in ine
event of any steps toward consolidation
with the Atlantic and Great Western.
The illness of Clark, a juror in the
Hall case, has terminated fatally, and a
new trial will be ordered.
The llearla publishes an Erie exhibit
whieh shows that there has been a tre
mendeous increase in all the 'depart-;
ments where fraud could be penetrated
since 1807, the time when Gould aud his j
associates become connected with the
road. The contingency exjienses which
in 18G7 were $32,306.82, in 1869 increased
to f 146,029.52 and in 1871 to $190,252.43.
The general superintendency amounted
to $113,461.51 in 1867 and in 1870 Jim
Fisk's year it jumped to $167,280.28.
The issue of stock ascended from twenty
five millions to eighty-six millions, aud
of this sum there is actually said to be a
deficit unaccounted for of fifty-one mil
lions, covered up in some ingenious way
to those who have had access to the Erie
books. The item of agents and clerks,
which in 1867 was $611,711.91, increased
until in 1871 there was $1,173,629.23 set
down. The increase for conductors,
baggage-masters and brakesmen, were
over $400,000.
The executive Committee of the Erie
Road report its liabilities as follows:
Common stock. $78,000,000; preferred
stock, $8,536,000: funded debt, $26,458,
300: consolidated mortgage insured but
not sold, $3,386,000. Total, $116,381,216.
The Company owes in addition tor sup
plies, labor 'and loans, $5,693,575. It
holds leases of other roads the annual
rents of which is $1,117,000, and the in
come from which exceeds the rental, and
it holds as collateral for loanS, etc., se
curities of various bonds and companies
to the amount of $98,80G,400.
The Herald's Washington dispatch says
An anti-Grant Convention is to be held
at Parkersburgh, West Va., the 18th of
April. The movement is understood to
be in the iuterest of Judge Chase. A
declaration of principles has been
agreed upon, and the originators desig
nate the new party by the name of Deiu-
ocratic-Kepnoncan .rarty.
Jay Gould in his testimony said that
in 1869, be saw President Grant and
Judge Barnard at the play of the Twelve
Temptations. He had seen the President
in the box with Fisk.
William L. Flagg, who says he was
one of the victims whose testimony be
fore the Custom House Committee was
called a downright lie by Special Agent
Howe, publishes a card re-offering his
original statement and that Howe set

dollars.

Calcutta.
. The assassin of Earl Mayo has been ex
ecuted. He made a confession declar
ing tbat the death of the Viceroy was
not the result of a conspiracy, as he
alone aesigneu ana carried out the mur- S
rter. He also said that he intended to I
kill General Stewart, who accompanied
Earl Mavo on his tour of inspection to
Port Blair, and was only prevented from
fully executing his "purpose by the
promptness of his arrest after attacking
the Viceroy. '
Ireland.
St. Patrick's anniversary was observed
throughout Ireland. Xo disturbances
are rexorted. At Drogheda thera was a
great open air celebration, at which
speeches were made upholding Home
Rule, and denouncing the government
for refusing pardon to the ITeniau pris
oners. Elchard Pigott, editor of the Irishman,
is released after his three months' im
prisonment for libel on tbe Chief Justice
during the trial of the Fenian, Kelly.
Pigott 's friends made a demonstration in
his honor upon his . release, and he was
afterwards entertained by them.

This is to certify tbat J. J. Pratt, Esq., is Sole

' Painksvillk, O., Jan. 12,1872.
I examined the instruments of Hazelton Bros.
of New York, and state, without hesitation, that
they are excellent Pianos, as well in tone as in
mechanism. The touch is deep and elastic, and
fully equal to the Stein way or Chickering; and I
can recommend it to any one wanting a real
flrst-clasi instrument.
So many agents are now going about the
country trying to persuade and unfortunately
too often succeed in selling pianos of an inferior
make that I take this opportunity of warning
people against these itnposters, and telling them
to take none but one of those make which I have
' named, viz : Hazelton. Steinway, and Chicker
ing; and my advice is to take the Hazelton.
I have this day - ordered from J. J. Pratt, Esq.
the agent for the Uazleton Bros. Piano, another
instrument for my own private use.

-' Dear Sir: Please find enclosed the amount In
full, for the Piano made by Hazelton Brothers,
N. Y.4 No. 5019. .purchased by me fortheWil-
loughby College last ' week.
This Hazelton Piano is probably the best
ever bad in the College Building. It has a pow
erful and brilliant tone, combined with great
sweetness and singing qualities. The action is
perfect, and its elastic touch affords the player
s real pleasure instead of bard work, as is
often the case with' other Pianos. The work.
maasbip, elaborate finish, inside and outside,
cannot be surpassed.1
Thanking you for your kindness in selecting
for ns such a splendid instrument, and hoping

Messrs. HaxbltX Bros. Gmtltmen ; I take
pleasure in saying that th Piano of your make
gives great satisfaction. It is pronounced by
good Judges to be a very superior instrument,
and for Sweetness, Fullness Depth and Purity
of Tone, it is unrivalled. -

Messrs. Hazelton Bros. Gentt: I hare had
one of yonr Pianot in my School for about eight
years. The boys who have practiced ou it have
given it the hardest kind of usage, pounding it
unmercifully for eight hours a day. The Piano
is still in good order, and iu a fair way to go
through eight years more, for aught I can tea.
I think that your Pianos ereel all other that I
have teen or heard of In beauty of tone and du
rability of workmanship.

Piano that you sold me proves to be all I desired.
It is truly a splendid instrument, so far as I can
judge, and every person who has touched it says
the tarn thing. I know by ay own ear that I
have bought a flue Instrument, and I am glad it
proves to be to good that nobody about here pre
tends to have anything which excels it, or Indeed
equals it. Yours, truly, , DAVID LYMAN.
