TnE Weather For the week we have had March sure enough. We have had rain, tine weather, eold.soow, line weather again. and airaitj rain in small quantities, not enough, nr to the close, to be of much ser vicf to the empty cisterns, or to any o.her interest. Kiver rising slowly, but still navi gation has commenced in good earnest. 1. S. Heavy rain Friday afternoon. Morals Bad behaviour in a church is very unbecoming in all old and youn With most people, if a young man is seen to leave before the serviee is concluded, it is evidence of improper training, or that he has no business in church at all. It is no better to be whispering or dropping notes. Both look verv bad. and besides, both dis turb a congregation that do not come to be disturbed, and who keen no the current ex penses of the church . Still, the thoughless frequently do these things. Fixe Ciia-nce The Good Templars meet to-niirht at Arcana Hall. It Is a fine chance for those who take a little too much whisky to reform.

The fire was put out without much trouble or damage. We nnderstaml that it is supposed that the build ing was set on fire by accident, probably from sparks from the chimney. Too much care cannot be taken, this windy weather, to pre vent tires. Best protection insurance. Since the fire, we have heard it said that it Is suspected that the tire was the work of an incendiary ; but we are not prepared to be lieve that any one could be guilty of such of fence.

Messrs. Editors: You have called the at teutiou of the county court to the mule Ad amson, the illegal sheriffof Lafayette eotm ty, and to the fact of his making the court house yard a horse lot and now a Wagon yard. Why does the county court still iier mit this nuisance to be carried on by mule Adamson? Haa not the county court the power to stop the animal from destroying the county property? Let the court resign, and we'll put iu a court that will at least halter this mule, and keep the mule from destroy ing the county property. The county built and walled in these grounds lor the use uf the county; and the people look to theconu ty court to have them kept in good order, and no improper use made of the building or yard. Messrs. Editors, I reside in the country, and seldom come to towu, and am always disgusted while in town. When I cast my eyes over to the courthouse that once beautiful building and yard, that the people was once so proud of the people in the county is desirous that a stop be put to this nuisance. We in thecouulry are thank ful to you for the call you made on the court to stop the mule. Messrs. Editors, when will we get back to decency aud order? This court must be radically blind, judging from the filthy condition of the house and'yard. When the radicals had charge of these build ings, we did not look for anything clean, or in order from a party so depraved and filthy as the radical party; Is nothing clean or in or der could come from their poluted hands. While those building, and grounds were kept by Fletcher's pimps, they made a horse lot of the yard aud a negro sefTool house of the court rooms. The house was soon tilled with negro wool, lice and negro musk. DeMotte and Crawford, better known in this commu nity as the negro spread eagle, those two Yankee negro equahsts came hear to elevate and enfranchise the negro. They hare im proved their situation and skill very much in their c-tealing. When slave, they would oc casionally steal chickens and sometimes a small shoat; but the Yankee teachers have succeeded wonderfully in advancing the ne gro. He h.ts now got so he can steal a whole ' hog, a wheelbarrow- or a wagon, and at the ! -aine time call on the Benevolent societv for I bread too lazy to work for bread will the. I CaccasIan call on the Yankee General le- Mot'.e and know of him w hen his negro brig ade will graduate in these arts, under his teachings? llim and his radical party have improved the negro wonderfully indeed, for the time they have been teaching them. Keep in good spirits Thomas C. Fletcher will yet give you an office for your efforts in elevating the negro. He gave Walker an of fice against the will of the people. Y'ou know you have done as much for the negro as Walker. Can't yon General, give us in your nice sheet a few editorials on negro equality and their present suffering condition in your town, brought on by their laziness? Do, General, have the Benevolent society to aid in feeding them so they will have strength to hold up Winsor's brick corner. Don't let j our negroes suffer; they look to you as their great leader and teacher. Give the people an editorial on chaiity for the poor negro; you are very able on this subject. General, when does your school commence? is it a day school? could you take a few of the flat nose to board with you? there is several in this part of the county that ought togo to school. Perhaps you could get them in the radical college. These negro lads now only know how to steal eggs. " How long would it take, in a radical college, for them to be able to steal a whole hog or a wheelbarrow ? Gen eral, you and your paper done much, to free the negro: don't let him suffer. Give us an other editorial on charity lor the negro. 1 see some of them. General, are getting very ragged. Ain't you afraid they will frost bite and tic unable to engage in a radical war? A FARMER. RAY COUNTY ITEMS. Sale of Farm. We learn the Col. W. P. Shaw has sold his home farm, to Dr. Adams, of Lexington, and will remove to Carrollton in a short time, with his family. Accident. We learn that Stephen Fowler, a brother of Elijah Fowler, who killed Me Cuilough a few days since in Grape Grove township, while riding with Elijah, on their way to Clinton county , his horse stumbled and fell upon him, inflicting injuries of which he died on Monday last. Bailed. Elijah Fowler gave himself upon Sunday last, to Judge D. P. Whitmer.and on Monday morning he held a preliminary examination, which resulted in admitting Mr. Fowler to bail, to appear at the circuit court on Monday next. Mr. F. regrets the serious termination of the difficulty, and has deeded to the widow of McCullough forty acres of good land and gave her$250in mon ey. The deceased was a man highly respect ed by his neighbors, and his sad end has cast a gloom over his immediate section. Richmond and St. Joseph Railroad. We arc gratitied to learn that this road i pro gressing most favorabl v. President Robin son was in this city Thursday and reported tnat it it could be legally done, that the 5200.000 subscription of Ray county to the Missouri Valley road, would be transferred to the Richmond & St. Joseph railroad, and that as soon as the vote was taken for stock in Buchanan, that the work would com mence. He was ver- sanguine in regard to the speedy completion of this great work, and it now would not surprise us to see a large force of workmen engaged on the road bed before the 1st of May. The road is need ed and will be built speedily. A meeting of the directors takes place in St. Joseph, on Tuesday next, when something definite will be done, as regards route, appointment of engineers, &c.

John C. Breckinridge was at Con stantinople, December 15, en route for Svria. The Cpnteat Between theFresidwytamri Congress. Editor Dispatch : The following pos tulates are submitted to the people to assist them in making up theif verdict: I. The war department (so called) iu not a department of Government,- btft is a mere convenience subordinate di vision of the executive department. II. The Secretary of War ia an exe cutive deputy or agent, and he is re sponsible to the President for the faith ful discharge of his duties. III. The President is directly respon sible for the manner in which his depu ties or agents execute their trusts. IV. The responsibility of the Presi dent to enforce and execute the laws, empowers him to suspend or remove deputies or executive agents whenever, in his opinion, it will render the ex ecutive department more efficient. V. This power is recognized as ex isting in the President nlotie by the act of August 7, 1787, sec. 2. VI. This power is created by the constitution, which makes the Presi dent responsible for the faithful en forcement of the laws ; thereby vestiug it in the President 011I3-. VII. The legislative department can not legally share this power or deprive the President of it, without a consti tutional amendment to that effect. . j VIII. JJo such amendment has een made. IX. The power of the Senate, t de cide upon the nominations of the Pres ident, docs not affect his responsibility for, or right of removal of his deptties. X. Inasmuch as the act of Marci 2d, 1867, (commonly called "Tenure, o Of fice act,") seeks to deprive the IVesi dent of the power constitutionally rest it, him, and furthermore, as it attempt ed to vest that power in the Senttiand President, it actually follows iVctn the foregoing postulates, that this act is unconstitutional and void; a vie and wicked attempt of the legislative de partment to usurp executive power.
