Will our neighbors be kind enough to toll the good people of this vicinity where they got their information upon which the above item is based. We have been unable to find any such in the daily re ports from Columbus, and not having .tha experience of our cotemporary ask tho question in order that we may learn a new lesson In journalistic enter prise. Wrra the approach of spring there come to us ominous rumors whose warn ing should not be disregarded. ' The in creased .mortality reports show that the dread epidemics of last year have only been checked, not stopped, in their course, by the winter's cold, and con vincingly prove that no sanitary precau tions can be neglected during the com ing season. Among the most prominent of preventives Is cleanliness, and thus, that whiclr at nil times should be a a pleasant duty, becomes an Imperative necessity. During the warm, damp days of SDring and early summer, no more prolific breeder of disease cau be found than the miasma generating piles of gar bage and refuse matter that have accu mulated in alleys and around dwellings during the winter mouths, and which are toooftcn allowed to remain iineared" for at this season of t he year. Now Is the proper time, and to each individual belongs the duty, of seeing that this mat- is prop erly attended to. A few weeks since, in commenting upon the remarkable increase of crime in this eountry, we suggested that an ex planation of the phenomenon might be found in the fact of too great laxity in the infliction of punishment, aud in tbe delays which too often are evolved troin the intricacies of the law for the. purpose of shielding a criminal from the sentence his acts may have deserved. Since writing the article, we notice that the same subject has been attracting consid erable ait.'ntion among our Canadian neighbors, and that they, having expe- rcnecd the same phenomenon, have ar rived at the same conclusions in regard to its cause. In ai article published in one of their papers upon this subject, the writer claims that, with them, as wit-1 tts, "punishment for offenses less than capital is not sufficiently severe, beside the additional drawback of affording con stant hope of evasion." 1 he same wri ter then goes on to say that " m many rates the prisons afford homes as com fortable as many of their inmates pre viously had," and that "except for the deprivation of liberty, a quiet prisoner has little to complain of." With them however, tho recognition of the evil has been followed by an attempt at remedy and they have begun the trial of flog- irlnff as an addition to confinement in certain cases. The first practical exper iment in this new direction was the case of a young man, under sentence for out rage on a female, who was whipped in the presence of all the male inmates of the prison at Toronto, and it is said that those who witnessed the occurrence are hopeful of its good effect upon the crim inal classes. While flogging looks like going, back to dark-age cruelty, yet it must be confessed that we need some thing to operate as a more efficient check upon these inclined to crime, than an afforded, at present, by our laws. THE MtGISLAl'l HK." Grumblers and fcult-linders are already nt work scolding about the inefficiency aud non-working characteristics of the present Legislature. This is foolish, because our Legislature is well and faithfully doinsrall the work before it. Besides, their failur to accomplish as much as they ousdit to is really tne lauit oi me ueopm memseives. who send in so many petitions as to loav no limn for graver matters. Partisan Echo Paraphrased. Judicious praise is pleasing, but we ap prehend that there Is a higher sphere of journalism than that which leads to pel petual and fulsome flattery, either of per sons or parties. Criticism, when fair and candid, is not by any means to be. classed with captious fault-finding or groundless grumbling, and the efforts too frequently made by writers for the press to defend acts for which no defence ought ever to he attempted, simply because done- by ome party or clique, often produces a contempt .not only for that particular writer, but even for the entire profca nion. "When the press compromises truth it ceases to be tho guardian of liberty," and no greater compromise can be imagined than the abandonment of im partial independence to don the courtier's livery. That the Legislature has received an Immense number of petitions during the present session, no one can deny; but to find In this fact an excuse for the neg lect of legitimate work, requires a far subtler power of reasoning than most men possess. We hardly hnagino that it would be considered a perfectly satlsfac- account tor the de- Samurl l-'iulry Breew Home. There was an appropriateness in the transmission of the news of the death of Professor Morse, by means of the inven tion for which the world will ever be his debtor. On Friday last he, who realized Shakespeare's conception, aud "put a Girdle iroimd the Karth in -forty min utes." died in New York at the age of SI, and within an hour the fact was known to nearly every nation on the earth. In common with most other great in ventions the telegraph has been in some measure, a growth, bnt the world has re cognized Professor Morse as at least the contributor of the greatest share of the origination, and the one successful pro moter of it realization. In less than thirty years his valuable invention has completely revolutionized journal ism and effected vast changes in all the principal transactions of the world. , j April 27, 1791, within sight of Bunker Hill, Samuel Finlev Breese Morse was i i boru. lie was the son of Rev. Jcdediah Morse, D.D., pastor of the First Congre- gational Church, and author of that many-volumed eerie of text books from which the passing generation studied geography. In 1S10 he graduated from Yale College, in company with Gover nor Ellsworth, President Hasbrouck of Rutgers, Prof. Chauncy.A. Goodrich, Prof. Ebenezer Kellogg and other dis tinguished men. Ills first bent was to- ard engineering, but immediately af ter graduation he decided upon the life f an artist ;' so went to England with Washington Allstoniu 1811, becoming then a pupil of Benjamin West. In 1820 he exhibited at the Royal Academy his "Dying Hercules, and in May of that year a plaster model of the same, which he had made in prepar ing for the pic ture, won t he gold medal of the London Adelnhia Society of Arts. In 1815, he returned, settling in Boston, afterward going to New Hamp shire and getting $15 per head for por traits. From here, In 1822, he went to KewYork. It was In 1826, that the Na tional Academy of Design was formed, growing out ot a .drawing association started in 1824. Mr. Morse taking an ac tive part in tbe organization, and lie- ing elected its first president. This po sition he be held for sixteen years. In 1820 he started ngaiu for Europe, stayii.g three years. While in Paris he painted n picture of one of the Ixmvre galleries, copying the ch.etiy jiotnM paintings on the walls in miniature His election to the chair of the literature of the arts of design in the University of New York recalled him, and in October, 18:12, he sailed from Havre in the packet hip Sully. There was the birth place of the .Morse electric telegraph. The professor had been much in terested in eleotre-niegnctism, and had been wont to discuss the new discovery much, with his friend, Prof. J. F. Dan Dr. Charles S. .Tackson described a late Paris experiment, in which electrity had been transmitted through a long length of wire. Said Morse: "If that is so. see no reason why messages may not be instantaneously transmitted by elec tricity." Ho went to work at the idea. and before tho ship reached shove, had virtually invented his telegraph, and sketched upon paper the essential fea tures of the transmitting and recording apparatus In 1835 he .completed a rude apparatus all made by himself, with an experi mental wire, pf half a mile around room, but this oulv transmitted m one direction. By 1837 he had ready an im proved apparatus, which he exhibited at one of the rooms of the University. This year he went to Washington, filed his caveat, and asked for a Congressional appropriation for a line thence to . Bal timore. . The session passed without ac- tory explanation to liberate absence of thfl members from their seats, even if accepted as a reason why nothing was done when there. The "press of petitions" would not account tion, and he went abroad. England re fused him a patent, Wheatstonc having in the meantime got to work. In France he obtained a brevet d'invention. But he met with little encouragement abroad, aud came back to struggle through pov erty and ridicule for four long years. Session after session he persevered. His bill was amended by Congressional wits to include experiments iu mesmerism and Millerism, the chair refusing to rule out the absurd amendment on t!c plea that "it would require a scientific nnaly-. sis to determine how far the magnetism of mesmerism was analogous to that to be employed in the telegraphs."- At last came the close of the session of '43. On the evening of March 3, the . Professor gave up in despair, returned to his hotel " broken in spirit and bankrupt iu purse," to start for New York next day. "At the midnight hour of the expiring session," by a vote of 89 to 83, the bill was passed, and in the morning the in ventor knew the dawn which follows the darkest hour. But there wore more difficulties. The first plan was of burying the wires in lead pipes. Ezra Cornell devised a ms chine, drawn by oxen, which opened the trench, laid the pipe, and closed it again; but the expense was great and the plan failed otherwise. It is said Cornell saved him confession of failure by "accidentally on purpose" smashing up the machine against a rock. Only $7,000. of the appropriation then re mained: but Cornell snggested the use of pole?, and on the 27th May, 1844, "What hifth God wrought J"' flashed nraise and victory from Baltimore to Washington. The: first information "Iven by the telegraph to the public was that of the nomination of James K Polk for the presidency by the Baltimore Convention. In 1842 the first submarine cable wan laid bv him across New York harbor winning the gold mednl of the American institute. Mr. Morse's letter to the Secretary- of the Treasury, 10th of August, l43,"contained tbe first' suggestion - of the Atlantic telegraph. Honors were poured lo upon him. In JS51 a conven tion to select nu uniform sys'em for all Germany adopted bis; in 1857 tbe repre sentatives of the chief European pow ers, assembled at Paris, presented him with 400,000 francs on account of bi in vention. Yale made him a doctor of laws. France enrolled him In her Le gion of Honor, Austria, the German Mates, Denmark, Turkey, gave him of their highest honors. His fame follow ed the wires till the globe was girdled. Since then he has been growing into a ripe old age, dividing his time between Now York and his place on the Hudson, Locust Grove," just below Poughkrep sie. Last year the Central Park statue to him wffs raised, and tho grand cele bration held at the Academy of Music. He honored the Franklin celebration with hi presence, The Sexatk Hesisme for the vifek mI-in-j April 2.-70n Wednesday the 27th there was no business on account of the Republican State Convention which was held on that day, and an account of which was given last week. On Thurs day a number of local bills were intro duced and a few passed. Among these latter was Mr. Leed's Senate bill lo pro vide for the performance of two clays labor on free turnpikes under direction of supervisors, the same as on other roads, and to make the commutation lor two days lalor on road three dollars. instead of two as now. Some resolutions were offered and then the Seriate spent j all 'he. afternoon discussing the bill to I erect monuments to Generals, Harrison, i Hannar, and Simon Kenton. The bill was lost 1 1 lo 20. On Friday morning the special order for eleven o'clock, be ing ."senators uauglitery s Din to pre vent tbe unnecessary accumulation of money in the public treasuries, : was ta ken tip, and, the question being on its passage, Mr. Daugherty took the floor and spoke in favor of the'passage of the bill. " After a long discussion the bill was passed. There were a number of liquor remonstrances presented and a few bills were passed but none of any general in terest. On Saturday the special order, being Mr. Creighton's House bill to au thorize process by Injunction t sup press lotteries, was taken up, and a lengthy discussiou had thercou,iu whieh Sir. Hart made a strong argument for the passage of the bill, and Mr. Patrick opposed its passage. Mr. Jones of Trum bull also gave the mil a strong support. n the absence oi several senators inenci- ly to the passage of the bill, it was post poned and made the special order lor next Wednesday at ten o'clock. At the afternoon session, the bill to regulate fares and freights on railroads being under consideration, Mr. Wales moved a (institute for the sixth amendment, to trike from the bill the prohibition of free passes. The motion was agreed to, and the prohibition stricken out. The bill was then ordered pi ihted as amended n advanced of all other matter. me balance of the day was taken up With general miscellaneous business of no general importance. Monday was truly "April f ool's uay" so iar as ousiuess was concerned, nothing whatever being done. On Tuesday there were a large number of iietition and memorials pre sented and some miscellaneoiiB business transacted. A few local bill were passed and one or two general bills, among which, however, were none of any es pecial importance, The House. Hesitate for the week tail ing April 2d, On W eduesday there was no session. Thursday and i riuay were occupied- with personal matters , and miscellaneous business, .tyatiirday was mostly occupied in personal charges and counter-charges between members, jb which valuable time wa9 wasted by members iu offering resolutions of no possible account aud in explanations tvhieh amounted to notning aim ougm not to have been dragged in even if they had amounted to anything. Monday was taken up with general matters and personal affairs and Tuesday was scarce ly better so far as any actual work was concerned. The last named uay, now ever, was partly occupied in considering laft s bill lor reorganizing tne common school system and classifying the pres ent school laws Kemleiing its passage the House adjourned A very cnth'usastic meeting was held at the -Opera House, Columbus, to consider the Adair liquor' law and it proposed amendment. - Rev. K. L. Rexford was called to the chair, and stated that the meeting was not called in the interest of any party, but in tne interest; oi me thousands of victims made miserable by the liquor traffic. Hon L. J. Critchfield then took the floor, and made a strong argument in opposition to any of the nronosed-amendments to the Adair law. He thoroughly caBvassed the whole sub ject, and was 'particularly severe on tne Liquor tellers' League oi Cincinnati He said the right of petition was a right that should be kept satred, but he thought that there was one class of pe (itioners that should be ignored, and that was those emanating troni tne liq uor Dealers League of C lncinnati. Mr Critchfield thought.howcver. there were one or two amendments that could bo made to the bill, and one was to so pro vide that the property rented for tho sale of liquor by the gurdians of luna tics, idiots or infants could not be taken for damages. Itev.Mr. Poindextcr made a short speech, also strongly in favor of the law. Kev. ur. jioore men reported resolutions earnestly protesting against the repeal or modiiieauon ot tne law Mr. Moore made a rousing speech in support of the resolutions, and in favor of the law. The resolutions were adop ted by a rising vote.

DISTRICT OF COtt'JlBW Thk Senate Jiesume for the week end- ing April 2. On Wednesday, during the morning hour, a few bills were intro duced aud a short discussion of the St Croix and Beytlcld i tail road bill was had. At the exniratiou of the mornin hour the bill went over, and the House bill to repeal the duty on tea and coffee came up. The balance of the day was spent- in. discussing its provisions and in voting upon the various amendments proposed without reaching any action however, tbe Senate finally adjourned On Thursday the bill was again taken up and its consideration occupied the en tire day, Numerous amendments were offered and promptly rejected,' 'd the entire debate was conducted in a lively manner. -A few amendments were fina ly adopted aud the bill was then passed amid, great confusion, by a vote of 35 to Messrs. IJorcinan, Hamlin, rreunghuv sen and Scott, in the negative. It now goes to the House for concurrence i amendments which include substantial ly the tariff bill reported by the Sonate Finance Committee, and the wholesale reduction of Internal taxes involved i DAKOTA. m the House ot Kepreseiiiatires, ana the Senate may propose or concur with amendments, as in other bills. The right thus reserved to the House would cease to be of any value if the Senate could, under the form of amendment, origin ate everything of value or importance m a revenue bill. Tbe substitute of the Senate changed entirely the character of the House bill, which was merely to re peal the duties on tea and coffee. Not even the title of the House bill remained. It was a general revision, not only of the tariff, but of the internal revenue system. He trusted that without re gard to the intrinsic merits or the prop osition in the Senate substitute, the .House would assert unanimously one of the most valued of all rights and priv ileges by laying the Senate bill on tho tabic. After some discussion tbe resolu tion was adopted. The steamboat bill then came up, but- without reaching any action the House adjouraed. A delegation from Texas, beaded by Senator Hamilton, waited on the Presi dent in relation to Mexican depreda tions on the frontier. I he delegation represented that on a recent date a party of forty regular Mexican troops in uni form crossed the Rio Grande at a point above Brownsville, and arrested a L nited States customs inspector, together with a number of citizens, and held them un- ! til they had crossed into Mexico, with a I drove of five or six hundred stolen cat tle. It is furtherrepresented, that the depredations cn stock alone, by raiders from Mexico into Texas, in the last six ears, will reach from six to ten millions of dollars in value, and the system of brands prevailing in Texas will enable sufferers to establish a legitimate claim agaiust Jiexico from the various county records. The President replied that the ubject bad been one. of frequent com munications to the Mexican government. which would no doubt willingly afford relief, but seemed powerless while Inter- , - - ... i : . i "V .1. nai revcuuuoiis coiiuuuoii iu me .iutui- ern States of Mexico. Tho commercial phases of the question were also discus sed, and it was suggested that the order of the Secretary of the Treasury, prohib iting clearance of vessels from points above Brownsville, was a virtual block ade of the RioJGrande, and therefore ille gal. The President took notes of the conversation ana promised to oring an questions before the cabinet. The dele gation subsequently called on tne ec retary of the Treasury on the commer- lal question involved, ine secretary admitted that the order prohibiting trade above JJrowjisille was or questionable legality, and unless it was made the sub- iect of an executive order the order from the Treasury Department snouiu oe re voked; The Comptroller of the Currency has estgned his position, and it has been ac- cepted by the Secretary. No successor j has yet been named. j The Secretary or the Treasury nas au thorized the Assistant Treasurer at New York to purchase one million dollars of bonds on each Wednesday, ana to sen one million dollars gold on each Thurs day during the month of April.

The report that General Crook has suspended operation against hostile Apaches in Arizona, in consequence of the arrival there of General Howard, is not credited here. General Crook's plans have been approved by the war Depart inent. If Ins campaign movements arc restricted, it will be from lack of funds, the appropriation for the current fiscal year being nearly exhausted, and the new appropriation not being available until tiie nrst ot July. Secretary Delano, in a letter to Gover nor Burbank, of Idaho, states that he has information that a combination of men has been made to enter the region of country Known as tne JBiacit mils or Da kota, which is within the reservation of the Sioux Indians, and that Federal of ficers encourage the move ment. He says the reason for this is that the territory has valuable mineral deposits and quan tities of timber. The Indians are. already apprehensive, and trouble may ensue. hence, by direction of the President, he requests the Governor to cause a stop to be put to any combination of this char acter against tne laws. inc secretary nas also addressed a letter to the Secretary of War, with a view of securing the aid of the military in checking these expedi tions. A sub-Committee of the House Com mittee on Commerce, have been exam ining into the acts and purposes of the South Improvement Company, incorpo rated under tne law ot Pennsylvania The object was to combine all the petro leum refineries in the country in their scheme, and they accordingly made written contracts with all the railroads centering in the oil regions, to raise the price of freight one dollar and twenty cents per barrel. The South Improve ment Company was to have rebate ot one dollar per barrel. The production last year was six million barrels, and if this arrangement had gone into enect the tax on consumers would havebeen $7,500, 000, "of which the railroad companies would nave received $1,000,000, leaving ine sontn improvement company to.- 000,000. The Secretary of the Company stated that all contracts with railroad companies have been abrogated, in con sequence ot investigation of the subject by congress. The Sioux City Tim publishes a tel egram addressed to the editor, from Ma jor General Hancock, in regard to the gold discoveries at Black hills, which savs that the country is an Indian reser- vat ion, and no prospecting parties will be allowed to enter m search ot gold. The Times, iu an editorial on the matter, ays there are at present two bills pend ing in Congress, each of them aiming at a solution of this problem, and that Con gressional action will anticipate milita ry tnterferei.-e bv throwing open the country referred to for settlement. One of the bills referred to authorized the Secretary of the Interior to purchase the Black Hills region troni the Sioux Indi ans, and in case they refuse to sell, the secretary is authorized to make arrange ments to occupy the country. The TiiAt further adds that live weeks ago the project of owning t white settle ment Black Hills, Iiakota. was looked upon as Utopian. To-day the matter is receiving the earnest attention of our na tional Congress, and the time is rapidly approaching w-hen a peaceable, just and equitable solution of the whole question will be arrived at.

A correspondent, just returned from Lincoln, Nebraska, reports about Ibres hundred men, principally from Omaha, assembled in convention to denounce Council Bluffs, the Iowa railroads, the Iowa Legislature, and the Chicago pa pers for interfering with the plans and designs of Omaha ami the Union racilic Railroad.

Grinned, Fitz Henry Warring, Jacob Butler. Geo. W. Field, J. II. William son and a number of other prominent Republicans of the State of Iowa, for a Mass Convention at Davenport, on Tues day, April 25th, to appoint delegates to tne .National Liberal Convention at Cin cinnati. The call is addressed to citi zens who are opposed to corruption and inihtaiy supremacy in civil ministration It is proposed to hold also a grand rati fication meeting at Des Moines after the Cincinnati Convention. Business in men in Chicago are in censed at the discovery that the North west and Southwest have been flooded with a printed circular containing sev eral distinct falsehoods respecting Chi cago, and signed by J. V. Dodd, Tu' the interest of the wholesale trade of St. Louis. The document states that the business of this city is at a stand, ow ing to the small pox, the terrible state of the burnt district, and the financial condition of the merchants, and that the business men of St. Louis were never in better condition to Invite trade. It seems scarcely necessary for Chicago to denounce this circular as a dastardly piece of business, and to refute its state ments concerning its business faciliiies. Utah. The call for a Democratic convention through Mormon church influence does not mease the Democrats At all. The scheme to divide the Gentiles by old party prejudices will not work. The forty-secona annual conference of the church of Latter Day Saints i-oin- meuees next Saturday. There is great disappointment at the continued delay ot the decision of the United States Supreme Courts in the En glebrecht case. Both Mormons and Gen tiles are anxious for this decision as a test of the validity of the proceedings of the Federal Courts ot the Territory iu regard to juries. The total vote of the Mormons or Utah for ratification of the State Constitution was 25,324, nrobablv one half women. J he memorial protesting against admis sion is being signed by all the Gentiles, and occasionally by Mormons. Six to eight thousand signatures are expected within a few days. The papers are agi tating the questions of the possibility of civil war in I tali as the result ol a divis ion of Mormons. They deny and ridi cule the idea. Wells, Fargo & Co. last month for warded east silver bullion from Ray mond and Fjlv and Meadow Vallev mines $568,000 bullion, and from other sources over $200,000. There is much talk iu" regard to the extraordinary de velopments of the Lmma mines on the Little Cotton wood. At the depth of 400 leet a body or ore was struck worth $1, 900 per ton. At a private eonlcrence ot principal merchants, mine owners and business men it was determined to send a delega tion to Washington to represent their interests and to oppose admission as be ing, at present, fatal to the best interests of the territory and to urge the passage oi tne voornees bin in congress lor tbe enforcement of the laws of the United States in Utah. Among the delegates are J. Robinson Walker, of the wealthy mercantile house of Walker Bros. ; Hen ry Lawrence, of Kimball & Lawrence, one of the most influential apostate Mor mons; Uon. Robert A.lsaskins, a law yer, and John Chislett, of Cunnineton & Co. The memorial to Congress against admission is swelling witn names with great rapidity throughout the territory'. In the mining sections most strenuous exertions against the Mormon State are being made. There are two thousand signers already to the memorial. CAUFOKXIA.

Dispatches frem the volcanic districts of Ingo county, four hundred miles southeast from San Francisco, give ad ditional details of the earthquake disas ter of Tuesday last. Shocks continue, tnongn in decreased violence, it is re markable that only the single slight shock of Tuesday was felt -in Central Xorthera California. Corra Gordo was badly damaged. Some buildings were thrown down, but only one man killed. Lone Pine appears to have, been directly over the centr of disturbance. Among the killed at the latter place was Mr. Gray, aged forty-two, a native of Texas. The remainder were all Spanish Ameri cans. Tbe first shock is descriled as like a park of artillery fired directly be neath t4e town. Colonel Whipple," who was in the second story of an abode house, states that he had lust time to Jump from bod and get to the doorway, wtien tne nouse appeared to crumble to pieces beneath him. He was buried among the ruins, hut succeeded in ex tricating himself from the debris, suf fering from several painful wounds. Tbe scene beggars description. Nearly the whole population was buried beneath the ruins. Cries for help and screams of pains fropj the wouuded filled tbe air, while thane who escaped from ruins were calling for hlp to rescue fathers, brothers, wives and children. The first shock was followed in quick succession by three others. Over three hundred distinct shocks wore felt between half past two o'clock and sunrise. In fact, tli c earth was in a constant shako and trcmblo for oyer throe hours. A chasm was opened extending thirty-live miles down the valley, ranging "from three inches to forty "feet in width. Rocks were torn from their place? and rolled down into the valley. Everywhere through tile valley are seen evidences of the terrible convulsion of nature. At Swauza, Colonel Tregallas of tho smelt ing works was killed. There Is much desolation among the inhabitants at Lone Pino. A dispatch from A'isalla says several shocks were felt in Ihe city, and they are still coming from the southwest. Persons anticipate the find, lug of immense clutMiis in the mountains east of us as soon as the snow disap pears enough to admit of investigation. Rumors of a volcano in Retire operation NEW YORK. The following appeared in the TVt&ttne directed "To Colonel William M. Gros venor, Chairman of the Executive Com mittee of the Liberal Republican Con vention, Washington:" Sir "We Re publicans of New York, wish to express our concurrence in the principles lately set forth by the Liberal Republicans of Missouri. . AVc make this departure from the ordinary methods of party action from a deep conviction that the organization to whieh we belong is un der control of those who will use it chiefly for personal purposes, and ob struct the free expression of opinion on oniportant matters which the gen tlemen whom you represent have laid before the people of the United States. We believe that the time has come when the political offenses of thegpast should be pardoned; that all citizens should be protected in the enjoyment of the rights guaranteed them bv the constitution ; that federal taxation should be imposed for revenue, and so adjust as to make the burden on the industry of the coun try as light as possible ; that a reform in" oivil servioe should be made which relieve political action from tho in fluence of official patronage; that the right of local self-government, the foundation of American freedom.should be reasserted, and the encroachment of the Federal powerlchecked : and we al so believe that at this time a special duty rests on the people to do away with corruption In office. The expo sures recently made in this state have brought th light evils which are not confined to one party nor to a single locality, and disclose dangers more formidable than any which the Re uuclic has yet encountered. With the hope that the movement begun in Mis souri may spread through all the States, and influence every political party, we accept tl.d invitation to meet in National Mass., Convention at the city of Con cinnati, on the first Wednesday of May next, and we invite all Jtupublicans of New York who agree with us to co-op- perate in our action.- Mgncd by Henry R. Selden, Horace Grealey, 'Frederick A. Conkling, VVHliam Dorsheimer, Sinclair Tousey, Sigismun Kaufman, E. Krakawigs, Ira O. Miller, Edwin R. Reynolds, William II. Briggs, Charles W."Godard, Henry D. Lloyd, William W. Goodrich, Waldo Hutchins, Hiram Barney, Freeman J. Fithian, George P. Bradford, Benjamin A. Wills, Horaoe Bemis and Louis Lowenthal. The Tribune's editorial on the call says : The letterjof certain New York Republicans to Colonel Grosvenor, herewith printed, is the first unequivocal resiionse from the East to the overture of the Liberal Republicans of the West for a consult ation at Cincinnati, ou Wednesday, May 1st. Others will soon follow. There is no longer an excuse for doubt that tne convention will be field and be respectfully attended. We prsume that should any important action be taken at Cincinnati, those present from each State would designate a portion of their number to -cast a vote of that State in Convention. But no one is excluded from attending, and the invitation is' so broad that many will doubthiss be pres ent who have not been invited. Cin cinnati proffers all a generous welcome. Whether the Convention p ill determine to put forth a declaration of principles to present national candidates, or adopt some other form of appeal to the conn try, no one is entitled to forecast. What ever it shall do or propound will nec essarily derive all its force from its ac cord with public sentiment. This con vention speaks with no authority and claims no power but that which may be accorded to the intrinsic worth of its acts and its declaration. A spicy debate took place in the State Senate, Albany: on the charter. Sena tor O'Brien created a sensation by de nouncing controller ureen ana Com missioner Van Nort as the tools of the ring, and promised to leave the Senate and go home when the charter bul was passed. The London Telegraph of the 14th has the following! ''Excellent tidings for Englishmen who invested money in the Erie Railway have come from New York.

Alexander Reaney, a lawyer, has been committed in default of bail in $ 10,000, on the charge of forging in obtaining tbe signature of a lady to a sheet of blank paper, and filling the page so as to ob tain her property. At a meeting of the Liberal Republi can Central Committee, resolutions were adopted oppo.-ing the renomination of Grant and pressing the belief that the convention to be held at Cincinnati was the only political body that can ac complish the object.

The following lrom one who has had live years experience in the manufacture of Pianos, Melodibns, and' Organs, may be interesting to all who may wish to inves tigate the subject, or to those who desire to buy. "o wood is fit to be put into a Piano, Melodion, or Organ until it has bad three years good seasoning at least. Five months is the shortest time in which Rose wood can be finished with Copal Varnish. Three-fourths of the instruments of the kinds mentioned above, are made from lumber seasoned no more than three or four tceelcx. The result is, the piano will not stay in tune, tbe varnish will check and fall off, and the instrument will be out of order most of the time. Hazelton and Brother's Pianos have stood ttcenty-jire years, la New England, and throughout the country where they have been introduced. To-day this nrm are making a piano with more real merit than is possesed by any other in the United States. It'don't cost a farm to buy a biano, unless you indirectly pay a commission to three or four agents. l win sen a, Hazeltou piano at a very sniall advance on the cost to the manufac turer. I will give a written guarantee from Hazelton Brothers, and Myself, that the instrument shall give perfect satisfaction for yeai s, and "otherwise the money is to be refunded. I will furnish ten or twelve dif ferent makes of Pianos, usually sold about the country by agents who know nothing abont thein; for less than 30o,0.
