Tin labors of thu General Assembly
have been arduous, but havo resulted til
no legislation of any value. The reve

tention, ninl It was the question of the
hour. Thu Senate hits woiked quietly
ami fdlhfullv, and the Djiii ier.it lo and
Independent Senators have been united
upon all hnp.u Unt party questions; but In
the llauu uproar ha been the clilct fea

fact that the It 'publiaiu ineuibers have
hut no opportunity to cre

partly from the Indiscretion of the

subject, was some time ago pre-enled hi
the Hntwc by Hon. It. U. Jones. If the
consolidation of Alexander mid l'uluki

i ue counties now are burdened bv taxa

If the counties were couiHdaicd u lew of

The Farmer? AdeoMte, Williamson
county, relates the dctallsof the recent dis
covery In ll.ilnbrlihro Precinct In that
county, ol'lhu body of n woman supposed
to liave been murdered near Cartersvllle
hi thu ttitumir of 187.1. The body of the
unfortunate woman was found in the forks
of a fallen tree mid from Its appearance
wht'ii discovered. itIssuipo-ed that It hud
been partly removed from Its original po
sition by hogs and dogs. At the coro
ner's Inquest, bullet holes were found hi
the clothing that remained on thu body
and Hie fatal shot was found to have pen
traled the bowels. Tiie wo
man was about thirty years
of age, with light hair and small hi per
son. Who or what she was. Is mvstery.
The Adeoenle supplements Its account of
the discovery of the body ot the woman
by asking the quc-tluti : "Will our Rep
resentatives dare to adjourn without
making appropriations to ferret out the
numerous murder rs and other outlaws
of Williamson county, ami lo bring tlieiu
ti Justice?" We very much fear that our
General Assembly will dare, ami intend
to adjourn without meeting one of the
gravest and most important questions
before it; namely, the suppression of the
lawlessness and crime peculiar to Wil-Ham-Kin
county. The time of the Gener
al Assembly appear to be wholly taken
up with purposeless wrangling andjang
lingiihout nothing. Williamson county
must wait, and when all the reputable
people h ive deserted it and It Is given
over to moral nml material degeneracy.
the Mate authorities will, may be, do
something. Now. is not the day of sal
vation for Williamson county.

Nearly all the Independent 1!' formers
in the House of the General Assembly
voted ugaliist the bill making an appro
priation for the Douglas monument at
Chicago. Independent Reformers are
economical men. Thev deprecate theex-
peiidilureof money foranypurioseexcept
i he Improvement of the condition of the
fanner class, believing that in the pro
perily ol the man who tills the soil is the
pro-perity of all other classes. Douglas
was a lawyer, not a fanner; and therefore
thus, no doubt, thu Reformers rea
soned It would be wasting the money of
the people to expend it in building a
monument to commemorate his virtues.

peculiarly Republican, and the aiitl-iiiou-umeiit
Republicans acted in couoiinucc
witli It when they kicked at the dead
Douglas by refusing to vote to complete
a monument proposed to be erected in
eoimueiiior.itlou of him. Fourteen Dem
ocrats voted against the uill, for no other
reason probably than that they are mean
demagogues ami little-minded fellows.
Twenty-three Republicans voted for the
bill, and to these uieubeall honor. They
roo above old-time prejudices, and by
their votes attempted to commemorate
(lie patriotism mid virtues of a man who
with all hU (anils was one of the great
men of a notable era in American history.

The bill to repeal thu registry law of
this State has been killed in the House.
The vote stood 70 njes and 07 noes. Of
the 70 members- wlm voted hi the nlllruia
live there were 1U Democrats, 20 Inde
pendents audi Republican. Of the 07
who voted in the negative there were 02
Republicans,:! Independents and 'J Demo
crats. .Merrill and another Deinociat vo
ted in the negative, when it became ap
parent that tile bill would not receive the
constitutional majority, for the purpose
of moving a reconsideration.
It Is lo be regretted that this bill failed.
and it would not have done so. if Hie
member of nil the House Intavorol'it
had bum present, .sixteen members weie
absent, of whom at least ten would have
voted for the bill. Seventy votes Were
cist for It, and two iigalust it that would
have been can In the silllrmative If it
could have been passed. Seventy. seven
were required. Il therefore live of the
absentees who favored the bill had been
lu their seat, the registry law would have
been repealed, ami a great burden have
been I Hied Iroui the people.
There can be no doubt that the people
wl-li the registry law repealed. It s ot
no use in protecting the ballot-box from
Irauils; It Is rather an instrument by
which corruption Is uiadii easy. In the
rural districts. It requires electors lo give
two days to the election instead of one,
ur ele bu put lo unnecessary trouble,
while in thu cities it makes fraudulent
voting easy ; and besides this It Is very
expensive. The registry blanks alone,
in one year, cost about S20.000. If to

loss of time of citizens In registering, the
cost of Ihu system will Imi found to fall
not far short of Iroui three hundred thou,
