The pposition to the admission
of New Mexico as a State comes
principally from those in Congress,
with the approval of their respective
state governments against farther
increase of The United States Sen
ate's members by allowing addition
al small states to be represented in
that body. There is no little spirit
of jealously prevailing, that the east
is diminishing its power and influ
ence through the rapid growth of
the western States and Territories
ADJOURNMENT OF CONGRESS.
The certainty of the adjournment
of Congress on the 22nd of June
has already given a feeling of great
relief to the entire country. It is
now probable that no financial bill
will pass, and the certainty of that,
also, would go a great way in restor
ing confidence to the public mind.
If it had been known, three months
ago, that Congress would adjourn
finally in June, without legislating
os the financial question, the Spring
business wonld have taken an un
wonted activity. It was the uncer
tainty that prevailed that paralyzed
every branch of industry and com
In one respect, at least, the court
try stands on a much better footing
than it did a year or two ago. A
comparative statement of the value
of the imports and exports of leather,
and hides, and collateral articles, for
1873, compiled from the annual re
port of thcBureau of statistics,shows
a falling off in the value of imports
of those articles for the past year, of
S17.932.329 from those of 1872, and
an increase in the exports for the
sameperiod, of $2,540,475. The ex
cess in value of imports over exports
amounts to $29,926,584, against
$50, 405,248 in 1872, showing a dif
ference in iavor of the past year of
the large sum of $20,478,844.

Herald upon the ethnological differ

ored recc His position is that God
made the first man red, and that all
mankind have come from that red
man and that climatic influences
have produced the present diversity
of color. The physical differences
were due to cxtranerous causes.
Thus the long heel of the negro was
produced by striking his heel
against the ground when walking
barefooted, and the transmission
from father to son, (which we sup
pose means,.that the father striking
his heel so did the son, all the way
down). The flatness of the nose
was due to the bumping of that or
gan against the mother while as a
babe it was toted on the mother's
back. The San Francisco Chronicle
speaks of the lecturer as highly edu
cated as to be far above the compre
hension of the descendants of the or
iginal red man.
CRUSADE IN AUSTRIA.
The Cleveland Leader says: In
a small city of Austria, on the Dan
ube, the crusade on the liquor deal
ers began the other day. Messrs.
Hatschuck, prominent brewers of
the place, raised the price of beer
a few weeks since. The guzzlers of
that beverage were much dissatisfied
in consequence and cast about for
some power which would cheapen
it again. Entreaties and praj-ers
were of less avail than in Ohio, so
rage and brawn asserted their rights.
About ten thousand beer drinkers
assembled around the brewry and
began the work of destroying it
After doers, windows and machin
ery had been pitched into the Dan
ube in great profusion the brewers
acceded to the demands of the as
sailants, the old price was establish
ed, cheap beer again flowed, the cru
saders on high prices drank to sa
tiety and all is again quiet on the
Danube. If this kind of determin

breaking liquor sellers the illegal
sale would not last longer than

000 by Rowland in real estate, and
all his property given up to the
bondholders to make them and the
county safe. $91,000 are therefore
made up as good as cash, and the
value of the stocks are estimated at
$13,000. Less than $10,000 remain
to be made up, and if property se
cured to the bondsmen be not forc

it is very probable the bondsmen
will come out safe and whole. At
all events fliey will have less than
$1,000 each to pay.

pending against Rowland and his
bondsmen, and entered a decree
closing all claims of the county

Can Congress Censure Richardson.
A question has arisen in the minds
of many members of the House,
whether that body really has a right
to pass a vote of censure upon any
Cabinet Minister, as proposed in
the case of Secretary Richardson
for his action in the Sanborn affair,
The argument is that the Secretary
is responsible to the Executive, ap
points him, -and that Congress can
haye no control over him except
through the Executive. Ontheoth
er side, it is argued with equal force
that, as the President's appointment
cannot have force and effect until
after confirmation by the Senate,
the appointee, even though he be
a Cabinet olllcer, is amenable to

TERMS OF OFFICE.
The sixth section of the schedule
of the new constitution, as report
ed by the committee, provides that
at State elections on and after the
first Tuesday after the first Monday
in November, 1875, the Governor
and all other State and county of
ficers and the members of the Gen
eral Assembly shall be elected for
one year. It is provided in the re
port that the new constitution shall
take effect on the 1st of October,
1874. It is to be submitted to the
electors of the State on Tuesday
the 18th of August 1874. The three
questions to be separately submit
ted to the minority representation,
railroad aid, and license or no license.
The law restraining and regulat
ing cattle, hogs, etc., from running
at large is more binding in its pro
hibitory sense than many people are
probably aware of. According to
its provisions, a field of corn with
out a fence or any barrier whatever
around it, is protected as fully as
though it had one built half way to
the moon. Farmers for years have
had great reason for complaints
against town people, and their own
neighbors, for the depredations of
cattle running at large.

"The census of Japan for the year
1873 has just been published, and

Among these 'common people' it it
curious to notice the very large pro
portion of women who are engaged
in various occupations.
It is plain, therefore, that women
in Japan are not suppressed as they
are in most eastern countries; ana

crop of the Stats of Nebraska the
western limit of which is the base

al returns of the Department at
Washington for 1873, give the corn

equally true of other productions.

HOW A BRAVE BOY SAVED MANY
Tommy Ryan, a fifteen year old
lad of Williamsburg, displayed un
usual resolution and presence of
mind for one of his years, as, by his
promptness, his own family as well
as many others were saved. He was
in the village near the town hall with
his father's horse and wagon when
the approaching wave was discover
ed, and, his first thought being to
save his mother andjyounger broth
ers, he drove with great speed to
his home near James' woolen mill,
where he gave the alarm. He then
thonght tosave thelives of the op
eratives in the silk mill at Hayden-
ville by driving in advance of the
flood, which he succeeded in doing,
arriving at his destination about the
same time as Collins Graves, who
gavethe general alarm through the
village.2.His mother and brothers
in the meantime barely escaped
death, a3 in their flight they were
obliged to scale a high rail fence.
The children got over in safety, but
the mother's strength failng just as
the waters came upon her, she faint
ed, but was with great difficulty
dragged to a place of safety by her
little sons. Springfield Hepubli

is the bugs all leave. I do the same
