The intent is to reduce fie strength of the colored vote; and for the present it will have that effect. The proposed amendment, carried, will disfranchise some 15, 000 whites and 50,000 blacks. The State must be carried by the Demo crats in seme wav, snd this new plan will bo just as effectual, while is more humano, than Ku-Klux outrages and bull-dozing the colored voters. While at Columbus last week we visited the Insane Asylum, and were pleasantly entertained by our friend, Col. Blount, who is now Steward of the institution. The Colonel's health has greatly improved since he quit the hotel business, and in hi8 present position he seems to be em phatically "the right man in the right place." Dr. Firestone, the Superintendent, informed us that there ere now about 840 persons in the Asylum, its capacity being about 900. Mr. Charles Woodrow, former ly an attache of the News office, is now printer to the Asylum, and Mr. Wm. Tucker, another Hillsboro boy, handles the telegraph wires which connect the institution with the city, miles distant. There is also a telephone in the telegraph office, connecting with all parts of the Asvlum. Another daring attempt to kill the Czar of Russia was made on Mon day night of last week. Just as he and his family were about to sit down to supper in the Winter Falace at St Petersburg, an explosion occurred, which blew up the floor of the dining room, killed 9 soldiers of the guard and wounded some 30 more. Fortu nately, the Czar and his family had been accidentally detained, and had not entered the room when the ex plosion occurred. It is supposed that dynamite was placed in the cel lar, and exploded by a slow train. Many suspected parties have been arrested, but it is not yet known by whom the deed was committed. The Nihilists no doubt had something to with it. The Blaine Boom. We attended the Blaine meeting at City Hall, Columbus, last Thursday night. A great effort had been made by the manag ers to eclipse the Sherman meeting of the previous week, and they succeeded in at tracting a larger crowd, though they had pleasant weather to favor them, while the Sherman folkscomplained that "Old Probs." gave them a stormy and disagreeable night for i lie i r meeting. Hon. K. C. Hoffman, a prominent Columbus lawyer, presided, and speeches were made by Hon. J. C Covert, of the Cleveland Leader, I. F. Mack, H-q., of the Sandusky Register, W. S. Peierson, Esq., of the Warren Tribune, Gen. John Beatty, of Columbus, and sever al other gentlemen. They all claimed, of course, that "Blaine of Maine" was Btronger than anyone else as a Presidential candi date, but all had the good sense to speak respectfully of other candidates, except Gen. Beatty, who allowed his old grievance against the Presidents Southern policy, to get the better of his judgment, and indulg ed in a bitter attack upon Mr. Sherman for favoring that policy, and as he (Gen. B.) charged, deserting the Republicans of Louisiana. He also had the bad taste and injustice to disparage Mr. Sherman's great services to the country iu bringing about Resumption, aud said that any of Sherman's clerks could have done what he did, and therefore he deserved no credit ! resolutions were offered, and the meet ing closed with a rather theatrical flourish, by singing "John Brown's Body Lies Slum bering in the Ground," &c. The. Sherman men have been put on their mettle, and say they will have a meeting soon, which will so far surpass the Blaine demonstra tion, that it will sink into iusignilicance in comparison. Is Gen. Grant a Candidate? The New York Times of a late date contains the following significant ut terance with regard to General Grant's candidacy: "A near personal and political friend of ex-President Grant, who doubtless knows whereof he speaks, authorizes the following as a correct statement of the General's position with reference to the Presidency. He say3 General Grant is not now. nor has he ever been, a candidate for the presidential nomination ; but should the Republican National Con vention nominate him in the same manner as any other candidate would be nominated, he would deem it his duty to the country and the party to accept. Traveling abroad, he was a stranger to the contest now going on for the Presidential nomination, and has written no letters on the subject to any person, and all assertions to the contrary are without foundation in fact. Local Option. The Marietta Register of last week says : Petitions from all parts of the State for a Local Option law are pouring in npon the Legislature. It seems disposed to wait for the voice of the people. They are speaking promptly, as it is. But the Legisla ture' cannot get rid of an un pleasant task in any better way than to hand it over to the people. That is exactly what Local Option means. It turns the regulation of the liquor traffic over to the com munities by townships and counties. Those that want it can have it on a majority vote. Those that don't want it can abolish it, for where the majority will prohibit by a popular vote publics sentiment will be strong enough to enforce the law. The way for the Legislature to get this question off its hands is to turn it over to the people, who in eight counties out of ten are ready to "regulate it." The vote of last fall shows the majorities the several parties had in the Congressional Districts as ap portioned by the 1872 law, now re enacted. KEP. 3,645 1,441 604 DEM.

Davis, of Maine, strongly condemns the action of the Fusionists in the recent difficulties, and recommends "an investigation of the whole subject of arranging, tabulating and counting the returns, that the facts, as ascertained, may be made public. is by ii-r, Virginia Military Lands. The Clermont Courier says that the first survey of lands made in the Virginia Reservation between the Little Miami and Scioto rivers was that of Neville's, No. 388, and in cludes the site of the village of Nev ille, and was made November 13, 1787, six months previous to the reg ular settlement at Marietta. Judge W. W. Johnson took his seat in the Supreme Court at Colum bus, on the 12th, Judge Gilmore hav ing retired. Judge Mo Ilvaine was chosen Chief Justice. It It SCIOTO VALLEY R.R. A CONVENIENT ROUTE TO THE STATE CAPITAL. BUSINESS OF THE ROAD LARGE AND STEADILY INCREASING. RECENT CHANGES IN MANAGEMENT, &c. In going to and returning from Colum bus last week, we passed over the above road, and found its passenger trains as usual well filled, and every indication that the road is doing a prosperous busi ness. This is becoming a favorite route to Columbus for the people of the northern part of our county, being much nearer than via Loveland, The trains of the M. & C. make convenient connections at Chil licothe, both ways, and the trip is a very pleasant one, from that city to Columbus, through the Scioto valley, one of the most productiva and beautiful portions of the State. Hie conductors on the road are gentlemen, the cars first-class, and the road is in excellent order, running smooth ly and making good lime. Its business is steadily increasing, and its freight traffic, particularly in grain, Is very large. The road has proved a splen did investment for the merchants of Chil licothe and the farmers of Ross county, by giving them the benefits of close competi tion in freights between, the M. & C. and the Pan Handle roads, the Scioio Valley crossing the latter at Circleville. The Scioto Valley is now building a new coal road from Abbeville to the Hock ing valley coul fields, which will add largely to its business, and it is believed that the recent change in the Board of Directors, points to a speedy extension of the road from Portsmouth up the Ohio to a connection with the Chesapeake & Ohio road at Huntington or Ashland.

The office of General Manager was abolished, the duties of that office devolv ing on the President, Since the above was in type we find the following additional item in the Columbus News The Scioto Valley Railway Company purchased during the past week twenty acres of land of John G. Mitchell, and seven more from Patrick O'Day, situated at the corner of Reed and Mt. Vernon avenues, just beyoud the northeastern limits of the city. The price paid was fourteen thousand dollars, and it is said that the machine shops, a round house, etc, are to be built at that point, which is about one-half mile north of the Fair grounds. Correspondence of the News TV' ASMAGTOX LETTER. Washington, D. C. Feb. 20, 1880. The Democrats are piling blunders mountain-high, and seem determined to commit suicide before the next elections gives us a chance to demolish them on the political battle-field. The extra session seems to have taught them nothing, and daring the recess they spent their idle mo ments concocting a lot of new rules, with which to confirm their powsr over legisla tion, and subordinate the influence of the minority, and particularly to abolish the executive departments. The debate of the last few days shows these conspirators in their true light, and even Stephens, of Georgia, conld not restrain his Indignation at a party management which exposed its mean purposes so unblushing!?. The Republicans have been trying to perfect the rules, so that they may con. form to the best plans of modern legisla tion, and so that appropriation bills coaid not be overridden by extraaeous political or jobbing schemes. The Democrats, for several days, have stood solidly against all improvements, and it looks now as though, in spite of Stephens' protests, they would force the new rules into partisan service, and finally go on in the effort to starve the Government, by refusing supplies except on their own terms. All I have to say is, that the Republicans are ready for this programme, and will shortly show the con spirators that the worse ia their own. Meanwhile, the business of the country is suffering by these Damooratio partisan tricks. The friends of Mr. Blaine here have formed a strong "National Blaine Club," with a head-quarters, open day and eve ning, for the purpose of securing his nomi tion and election as President. Congressman Price, of Iowa, is President, and many Congressmen and distinguished public men are identified with it. The club has news from all parts of the country, very encouraging to their Presidential favorite and the revolution in his favor in Penn sylvania attracts a good deal of attention, The Democrats are afraid to take up the case of Fitz-John Porter. It is a trouble some case to handle on the eve of a Presi dential campaign, and they do not like to commit blunders that will not even give them a temporary partisan advantage. Some Southern Republicans have been to the President, complaining that Secreta ry Sherman is violating bis civil service rules, by ordering his subordinates in the Revenue office to work for his nomination for President. In North Carolina and Virginia they make serious complaints, but I cannot learn that there is any evi dence that Secretary Sherman ordered such things. The Democrats are good patrons of liquor-saloons, and perhaps this is why the rum-sellers of Washington tried to have their National Convention held here But the saloon-keepers of some other place will beat them perhaps, and obtain this Democratic patronage. LEO. A Medicine Should not be Gauged By the suddenness and violence of its ef fects. Self-evident as this proposition would settiu, there are many foolish persons who are content only with a remedy which acts abruptly. The pill and other nostrum-vendors who trade upon the credul ity of this class, find their "best holt," aa poor Artemus Ward termed it, in the sale violent purgatives. So long as they wrench the bowels of their dupes sufficient ly, they are pretty sure of a certain meas ure oi success, n instead ot such perni cious rubbish, Ilostctter's Stomach Bitters used, the results are widely different.

It seems very strange, that, after the people have been humbugged and imposed upon in almost every imaginable way, they are ever ready to "take hold" of any chance game which may be presented to them, and be swindled out of their money in the very manner they have seen so often prac ised upon others. On Saturday last, while the stock sales were in progress, a man in a buggy stopped in the street near the Har per House, and soon gathered a large crowd around him, to whom he professed to exhibit ways by which they could win (?) from him large sums c -money. The ea gerness and curiosity of the people conld not be aatished until this sharper bad pock eted about $40 of their money. Will the race of greenhorns never die out ? H. C. D.

McCord has, after a long and perilous voyage to England, at last arrived safe at his home in Bourne- ville. He is shipping cattle for a firm in Baltimore, to London. Oa his last voyage, he had 378 head, and on account of storms was forced to throw overboard 257 of the cat tle.

A glance at its clear type, typography, and fine paper, folded into a neat 16-page form, with leaves all cut and pasted like a book, tilled as it is with the very choicest agricultural and family lit erature from home and foreign sources, makes one actually wonder how it can all be afforded for one dollar per year, in the rapidly increasing cost of paper, printing material and labor. Still, starling out with a subscription list of 25,000 names, and a handsomely paying advertising pat ronage, it is likely that there is money in it.

It is a principle in mechanical science that a weight suspended between two supports can be carried easier and with less strain than in any other way. The plow is carried on a frame running between the wheels, and the vibration and weight bein? upon these, the bottom of the share is relieved from pressure. The pores at the bottom of the furrow are left open, and a free circula tion of the air is permitted. The team is hitched directly to the plow, the pole being used merely to keep the frame horizontal. There is no down or side draft on the horses' necks. The hardest and driest ground, the stickiest and muckiest soil, can be plowed with like readiness; and the heaviest growth of weeds and trash, clover, standing cornstalks, and even broom-corn, can be plowed nnder completely out of sight. These Sulky Plows are well known in this community, and have an established reputa tion. Refer to Ellis Good, Evan Good, Judge Morrow, Eli Roush, Wesley Roush, "Walter B. Littler, Jno. Carothers, II. R. West, Jos. Fenner, Jacob Pennington, Jno. West, W. C. Barry, Ree3 Brothers, Jacob Foraker, and many others. The best way is to try one your self. If it don't work, no sale.
