The receipts of the General.Gov
ernment for the first fifteen days in
March were over thirteen million
dollars. The government 13 par
chasing about $2,000,000 of its
bonds per week.
Denis Kearney, the California
sand-lot blatherskite, has been fined
$1,000 and six months imprison
ment, for incendiary talk.
Gallia County will be entitled to
seven delegates in the Republican
State Convention.
The House Committee on Temper
ance, in the Ohio General Assembly,
have agreed to report back Mr. King's
Local Option BUI, recommending its
passage. They also recommend ah
amendment, providing that wards in
cities and villages may take advan
tage of the law, and prohibit the sale of
liquors within their limits.
".tucnara is nimseir again." as
Edwin Booth said the other night,
after trying White's Cure on a stub-1
born case of Neuralgia.
"The Army of Salvation," is the
title assumed by a party of six, five
women and one man, who have
lately come over from England to
advance the canse of Christianity in
this country They have entered
upon their work "in Now York City.
Their methods are peculiar. They
visit drinking saloons, go out into
the by-ways and hedges, sing and
pray, ana aumomsn. a wcck ago
Sunday evening they held services
in a variety theatre. They seem
imbued with religious fervor, arid
inspired by a sincere desire to ad
vance the cause of Christianity.
The Congressional Convention in this
District, allowing one delegate forev-j
ery 200 votes cast for Gov. Jfpster last i

The Ohio Senate, by a vote of 25
to 9, endorses Capt John Porter's
raid on the state treasury to. the
tune 01 $b,uuu, which he claims on
account of the destruction of his
barge, which had been rendered use
less by being inocculated with yellow
lever germs, we regard this as per
fect robbery of the people's money,
and President pro-tera Richards,
B6n. Eggleston nd his Cincinnati
clacquers, ought to have enonerh
sense to be ashamed of themselves:
dui a is nardly probable they have.
Ironlow Regittcr.
And to talk abont "the humane
and. self-sacrificing. Bpirit of Capt
-rorter in applying tho torch to his
own jproperty in order toisave the
lives of others," as President pro
tein Bichards is reported to have
done, is, simply ridiculous, in. view
of the real facts in the case,. The
tow-boat John Porter, with its
plague infected barges, was brought
up the river, -tied to the bank just
below town, and there abandoned by
Captain and crew, utterly regardless
of the welfare and even-lives of the
people in that neighborhood. There
it was permitted to remain, carrying
on its work of death, until there
were no more victims to reach, and
then, after all the, evil it could do
had been done, the particular barge
waB caught up at Cincinnati, and
there burned. If that is Senator
Bichards' idea of a' "humane, and
self-sacrificing spirit," his study of
ethics must have been the product
of African barbarism instead of
christian civilization. The people
who sunered, who remained
who fought the disease, cared for
the sick, buried the dead, protected
boat and property, and spent their
asoney freely to prevent the spread
of the disease, receive no considera
n
here,
a
a
Hon from Senator Richards; their
claims for relief mnsi be ignored,
and, Capt. Porter" paid. Such ac-
s. . I
oa is an insult to justice,
Columbus Letter.
[Special Corr. of the Journal.]
COLUMBUS, O., Mar 19th, 1880.
The Honsoadjourned this morning
until 2 o'clock ncxtcluesuay
The. Senate having rescinded, a
few dys ago;. its resolution provid
ing for tri weekly adjournment, met
regularly, but not having a quorum
present adjourned until to-morrow
.saorning. As far as All-practical
purposes are concerned the Senate
might just as well Jet it3 tri-weekly
resolution alone, for so man' have
asked and obtained leave of absence,
that there-wilt be no rjuorum before
Monday.
The House has been , wrestling
with the , appropriation bill for the,
last three or our days, and the
chsppes are. . that it will continue to
for several days to come, lue dm
as introduced provides for about two
million dollars, of appropriation.
The Finance Committee,in jtheir con
sideration of the bill thought it too
small and reported it back with an
increase of about sixty-two thous
and dollars. It is" considered by
some that it is still too small, and
the probabilities .are that it will
take dnanother slight addition when
it comes to the Senate. Dr. Scott
the author of the bill is a candidate
for congress in his district, and he
has a natural anxiety of coarse,
just at this time, to acquire the
reputation of a 'brilliant financier,
by getting through under his author
I snip a very small appropriation
Bat whether this kind of legislation
will benefit the party or any one
else bat Dr. Scott, is questionable
'We have always censured the demo
cratic party for not appropriating
enough money to run' the expenses
of the State, and thereby leaving
a large deficiency bill to be supplied
by the Republicans or some' other
party, if such legislation is cen
sura We on tbepart-of the democrats,
it is no .less so on the part of the
republicans.
Senator .Eichards' limited partner
ship bill, has passed the Senate and
gone to the House. This is proba
bly one of the most important meas
ures that has been before this Gen
oral Assembly, effecting more largely
the business interests of. the State
than any other one question yet un
der consideration. It effects a very.
radical change in the present law
controlling partnership " association,
and I think if it becomes a law will
have a tendency to invite capital
into the channels of trade and Indus
try. lne main point in toe Dill is
the provision that only the capital
subscribed, save -under certain cir
cumstances, shall alone be rcsponsi
ble for the debts of the. association.
The present law I -believe, provides
that not only the capital subscribed,
but the capital and property of each
Individual member shall be subject
to execution for the satisfaction of
the debts of the association. The
Bichards bill is well hedged about
and guarded with all the safeguards
necessary against iraud and corrup
tion
Senator Pollard's bill for the relief
of John Porter passed the Senate bv
a two-tniras vote,-anu will be acted
upon in the Honse next week.
There is a strong probability that
it wm pass tuat urn v. Senator
Bichards made an earnest and elo
quent appeal in favor 1 Us passage
in tue benatc. senator Cllne offered
an amendment to the "bill, to include
indemnity to Gallipolis City and
Gallia County, bat it failed to meet
with any favor. The Clino bill that
provides for indemnifying Gallia
county and City of Gallipolis for
losses sustained in the yellow fever
reign, came up for third reading last
i uesday, and on motion was laid on
the table, where it will probably
remain, until the House takes action
on the-Porter bill. The Cline bill,
however, will be defeated. The line
of distinction, that will be made be
tween the two claims will be that
Porter sustained his loss in an
effort to-save others, while the people
ot liaiitpolis ana. County expended
tneir money, and sacrificed their
property to save themselves.

suspense that it has occasioned
would have been ended the first
month of the session. I can hardly
sec that we are any nearer reorgan
ization than wo wero at the begin
ning of the session. v
Senator Pond's bill which passed
the Senate sometime ago, and pro
vided for making a clean sweep of
the whole business, was dissected in
the House and all its vital parts tak
en out and thrown away, leaving
it inoperative in its application oh"
all the State institutions except the
Athen'8 Asylum and the X?nia Sol
diers' and Sailors' Orphans' Home.
In the judgment of the conscien
tious Republicans of the House these
two Institutions need reforming, bnt
the other institutions are par excel
lence and can be made no better.
This, however, does not accord with
the declarations made by these same
conscientious Republicans last fall
when they were asking the people to
send them here to correct democratic
legislation. The trouble is that there
are about fifty Republican Repre
sentatives that ought to be at home
chopping wood instead of at Colum
bus trying to legislate for the people.
They may understand some of the
principles or manufacturing stove
wood, but as legislators tbey are con
snmate failures.
Mr. Bay's Honse bill relative to
the school board of Cincinnati was
amended in the Senate yesterday so
as to make women eligible to mem
bership in said boards. Senator Eg
gleston. was the author of the amend
ment, and made a strong appeal in
behalf of the women. I am suspi
cious that the House, however, will
not concer in the Senate amendment.
A bill, by Senator Hollingsworth,
has passed the Senate providing that
all executions of death sentence shall
be performed in the Ohio Penlten
tiary, and that the Warden shall be

Our candidate for Secretary of
State, yoii know, is Captain J. C.
Donaldson. He is booming all over
the State 'and the boys propose to
head the State ticket this year with
a working Bepubiican, a wounded
soldier, and a man capable, efficient
and that can carry more votes than
any otlier man In the Mate.
T. H. Bicketts, an attorney at law.
of Coshocton, Ohio, is a very promt
nent candidate for Clerk of the Su
preme Court. Mr. Blcketts is a very
popular gentleman, and would make
a good officer, and a good strong, man
to put on the ticket
It is currently reported here that
C M. llolcorab, of Gallia, Is a can
didate for Congress in the 11th Dis
trict. We. hope that this is so and
that Mr. Holcomb will come square
ly out and fight the thing through on
that line. He is active, aggressive
and qualified, and if nominated will
make tho campaign red hot for the
boys on the stump and off of it
There certainly can be no question
but Gallia is entitled to recognition
in this matter. She has never had a
Congressman since the days of Sam
uel F. Vinton, and has never had a
Bepubiican Congressman or ever a
nominee, although she has continual
ly rolled up her 800, 900 and 1000
Bepubiican majority. Let Gallia
pick her man and then 26 Into the
Convention solid as a' rock for him,
