Instead of the ridicule with which it was at first men tioned, when noticed at all, it is now re ceiving a general and thorough discussion by, all the politicians and newspapers throughout the country. Wo are glad to learn from this discussion that the object seems to be not to organize a third party, but to unite and consolidate the friends of restoration of the Union and opponents of the radical scheme?. - We have seen the comments - of over seventy different, newspapers, twenty of them published in the.Sonth, and they are thus divided: Every Radical paper oppo ses ond denounces the movement; every conservative Republican paper approves and endorses it; the Democratic papers, both North and South, favor it mora or less. - ' - " ." There is.no longer a' doubt that it will be an immense gathering of distinguished- men, and if it acts as judiciously as should be expected from the-known wisdom and experience 01 us cuiei supponer3, iaai calism may at once buy its shroud. r It already assumes the appearance of a general uprising of the people to shake off the tyranny, usurpation and oppres sion of Thad. Stevens and Charles Sum ner radicalism. The dictatorship of these petffy tyrants will be trampled down. ' The Snmner and Stevens Polish. Being in a city a short time since, we had a short colloquy with a boot-black: "Black'yer boots: Sumner style ten cents; Thad. Steveh3 style fifteen cents." "What do you call the Sumner style?" we innocently inquired. ' "That's the blackest there is," respou ded the proprietor of the box and brush, t "'.'Well, and what's the Thad... Stevens style?" we asked. " , lThat'sblackin' 'em legs and all; black leg style we' call it' sometimes." We meditated profoundly while he ad ministered ten cents worth of the Sumner polish. . : : Study Your Geographies. , The breaking out of. the war in Europe has made it necessary for those who would understand the progress of affairs there. to brush up their geography. Without this, those not .familiar with the compli cated Governments of the German States will learn little from the dispatches. We recommend that 'those predisposed to lockjaw do not attempt to pronounce the names of the town's.. .Won't somebody invent a machine by which these names can be ground out with a crank?- Graveyard Loyalty. V ; .Some three years ago, Mr. Bollmeyer, editor of the Dayton Empire, was shot down in cold . blood by a man Bamed Brown,for no other reason than that Boll meyer was a Democrat. Brown was ta ken to Miami County for trial, and under "loyal pressure was cleared of the crime of murder, of which ha was as guilty as Booth.' Recently, Mrs. Bollmeyer erect ed a monument to her husband's memory, in Woodland cemetery ,with the following inscription: "He, fell by. the hand of an assassin, a martyr to the cause of liberty, of speech and of the press." A truer inscription was never - engraved .upon a tombstone; but the assassin Brown and his friends took exception to the inscrip tion, and the trustees of the cemetery no tified Mrs. Bollmeyer that she must have the inscription effaced,or remove the mon ument. This she declined to do, where upon the trustees removed it. -; We have no doubt but that the inscrip tion wa3 "obnoxious" to the assassin and bis friends. The inscription was too true, and all the efforts of Brown and his accomplices cannot destioy that truth nor efface from the. murderers brow the brand of his crime. .The curse of Cain will follow him through life, and his children's children will share the disgrace. But what language will describe these trustees? - The instinct of the jackal is an apology for his plunder of the rave of the dead; ferocity is the tiger's nature, and man can guard against the blood- craving propensity of the hyena but for men who possess the instincts of the low est animals, who will deprive the martyr ed dead of decent burial and deny, the widow the consolation of a monument for ber murdered husband, mankind ;has no protection and language cannot be framed into an apology for them.-r-Wyandotte Union. - ' Nominations for ' Congress Gen. George W. Morgan. The Democracy of the Knox District, in this State, have set a good example for other districts by their nomination of Oen. lieoige W. Mor gan for Congress. "He is a man of fine ability, and" is both a statesman and a scholar. As he will certainly be elected, we predict that he will take high rank in the next Congress.5: It behooves our friends in all the districts to bring out their strong and able menr both as a mat ter of party and public policy.

The fanatics who wanted the Southern people all killed because they were attempting to get out of the Union, now" want ' to kill them because they want to reniain in the Union.' ' Cu rious, isn't it? ' J : From the N. Y. Times (Rep.) July 4. Retrenchment ot Congressional Expenditures. ' Representative Hale is not a day or an hour too early with his resolutions in fa vor of retrenchment, tor m all our na tion's history there is no parallel in the prodigality which distinguishes the pres ent Congress. Our Representatives for get or ignore the great fact that we have a war debt of three thousand millions of dollars, and ' that war claims will add at least another thousands millions.;; Our enormous revenue,' instoad'of being hus banded for its legitimate use, is scatterod right and left, in, lavish and ' improvident, if not profligate appropriations. This waste of treasure drawn from the people to pay the national debt, cannot and must not be tolerated.- Taxation, in all the forms that Congressional ingenuity can invent, is upon us. These taxes are to be aggravated by the present Congress. The people havo paid cheerfully,and will con tinue to pay until evidence, of the Con gressional improvidence and abuse comes home to them." Then look out for Con gressional "empty saddles." Congress is squandering ' the Public Domain with '.'race-horse Vpied," . This munificent inheritance, cared for and pro tected, is a mine and a resource richer and surer than is possessed by any. of the na tions of the world. With it our national credit was founded upon gold. From its proceeds the National debt could be paid. But the ; present . Congress eeenis intent upon making, a finish of it even to the last acre. The.non. Mr. Deming,of Con- neeticut, only yesterday proposed a dona tion of public lands to educate the "strong minded women." cmancinatinor this "crushed" xlass from domestic thraldom "Spiritualism" languishes just now. Why not devote public Jands' to the revival of our neighbor Greejey s "rappings and "table-jumpinsr" reform? Doctress Wal ker was recently arrested for donning bat, coat and trowsers. , Let us have a dona tion of public lands to abolish the vulgar but popular prejudice which object to the substitution of pants for petticoats! And finally, to crown all, why not devote the remaining remnant of the public domain to the great work, of reforming colors of turning black into white,,for as matter of choice and taste most people prefer to be white. -The bleaching process would be necessarily tedious, but if stimulated by premiums, the hopes of that class of philanthropists might be ultimately real ized. ".. .' ; ' . : -- At the' close- of other; wars there were Representatives in Congress who realized the importance of retrenchment and econ omy. Wars induce extravagance and Waste in private and public expenditure. But the taxation consequent imposes a necessity for curtailing and retrenching The present Congress is slow in learning this lesson, though legibly written in the pages of all Governments. Indeed, .the present Cangress is slow in learning any lesson but that of i'how not", to restore Union and Prosperity. . - ' . From tW Washington Union, 29th.j - Death JTrom a Snakebite. . We learn that a most horrible death from snukebite occurred at Lower Hano ver County, Virginia, on Saturday last. Oar informant states that while Mr. Jer emiah Logan was passing through his oat field he suddenly trod on a copperhead snaki, one'of the most venomous species of reptiles found in the State, and in an instant" its fangs were imbedded in his right leg, causing at the same time only a slight tingling pain. The snake then glided out of sight, while Mr. Logan, af ter a brief search, proceeded about his outdoor labors. Nothing serious was ap? prehended in consequence of the bite till after the lapse of half an hour or three quarters, when, the pain becoming annoy ing, he deemed it best to go to his resi dence and apply some remedy. External and internal use of whisky and laudanum was resorted to, but instead of receiving relief, the wound began' rapidly to swell and spread, till the family became alarm ed and dispatched a servant for a physi cian. Before, however,- the services of any could be obtained,' Mr. Logan s con dition continued to get worse till the close of the day (about six hours after he was bitten,) when ho became wild and de lirious, and spasm after spasm ensued, las ting till late in the night, when he died in the most agonizing manner.1 H'13 leu and almost his whole person, we are in formed were very much swollen, when he died, and presented a light purplish green color, thus showing that the poison had disseminated itself through the whole sys tem. One of these deadly serpents was killed on the farm of Mr. Slaughter, in Chesterfield, a few weeks since, by a ne gro employed there.. It was in the act of springing'when killed. . : De'ath from the Bite of a Cat. Hy drophobia is usually inferred to be com municated from, the saliva secreted in the glands at the roots of the teeth of a rab id dog. There was a young man died at Manayunk with violent symptoms of hy drophobia, who had been inoculated with the disease from the bite of a cat. He was an apprentice to a blacksmith named John Ascouth, whose shop is at Front and Morris streets. There was a cat in the shop when, he went to open it, some three weeks ago. The cat sprang at him and made her teeth meet in his legs. The wound healed, and the poor , boy had al most forgotten the occurrence. On Sat urday, at the sighi of water,, he was seiz ed with spasms. He suffered unutterable agony until fcundaynoon, when death mercifully gave him a release.- Ex., J efferson Davis.

' It is noted that, as Austria has never recognized the Kingdom of Italy,;so that power, in its declaration of war, does not recognize Austria. The proclamation of war is addressed to the commander-in-chief of the Austrian army in Venetia, not to the Austrian Government. The statement of the New Frankfort Journal, that all able-bodied men in Sax ony have . been; forced into the Prussian service,' is a fable for, which there is not the slightest foundation. Not a man has been' conscripted uutside the Prussian frontiers. The inactivity of Benedekis accounted for in Vienna by his desire to have the Federal troops form a junction with him, or allow the Prussians to advance into Bohemia, so that he can cut off their re treat. ; -' '' ' ' r " .: ':.

The following is the latest official Austrian telegram rela ting to the fighting on the 28th: L'Pardubitt,' June 28. The Prussians yesterday were completely defeated by the Austrian forces under Gen.
