Established in i 822.1 CHARLES & BATTLE, Publishers and Proprietors. DOSSEY BATTLE, - Editor. TAHBOnO', 3. C. V ()' Jan. 21, 1376 Grant and-Babcock are still as thick as forty cats , in a wallet y cxj Granted. . And all the more reagocl the fur will fly when : the St. Louis indictment is tried against -Bab- rooster. 1 .' : The Virginia legislature has vot ed tlowri the 10.000 .appropriation.1 'for tie-centennial. They won't give a .cent ennial for such things. .Perhaps they didn't like the scent of Blaine's speech. We bow in grateful acknowledge ment of the kind words and wishes wafted us by our exchanges on the Commencement of our fifty fourt'i' volume. When you get old we will recipiacate in respect for your gray hairs. Budge Doolittle, of Yisconsin, thinks that General Sherman will be the next republican candidate for President, and that the power which proposes to nominate him would recreate the office of General of the Army and place Grant in it for life. The election- of Mr. Beck to the Senate of the United States from Kentucky is ono of the very best which has teen made eince the illustrious John C. Breckinridge presided over the deliberations of that body as vice-president. A distrusted Methodist who is unable to see the propriety of Grant's renomination by the church, says of Bishop Haven that he is one of those 'fussy sculs who are always going off half-cocked.' It looks very much like it. His fuK some endorsement of Grant looks very much also as if he was inclin ed at times to go off half Babcockcd. The contemplated raid, which the ring Pilgrims of Philadelphia proposes to make upon congress for an appropriation of 1,500,000. is very far from being generally en dorscd, even by the press of Penn sylvania. It is regarded for the most part as a scheme for margins of profit, anJ should be given a speedy quietus upon its first intro duction. The Philadelphia North Ameri can coolly says that 'amnesty can wait,' but that the centennial can not I' That is to say Blaine & Co can refuse Jeff. Davis pardon and consequently the righ to be a free visitor to the centennial, but Vir ginia must vote S10.000 and the southern members of Congress 1, 500,000 to the centennial ! Such a mean spirit as this can never be tolerated, and we would let the sel fish centennial wait just as long as its champions vote us out in the cold. The school question, the taxa tion of church property, free trade, protection, amnesty to Jefferson Davis, and the Cuban revolution, the Baltimore Gazette tells the democratic leadcis in Congress and the democratic newspapers, are profitless questions far the ap proaching campaign, and must be abandoned if the party means to elect the nex; President. It adds: 'The keynote of the great campaign is the restoration of the government to honesty and economy, to re trenchment and refrrm.' The Washington correspondent of the Boston 7erald has been studying the Presidential question, and comes to the conclusion that the nomination on the republican side now lies between Mr. Blaine and Senator Morton, with a very large possibility that Gov. Hayes may come in as a compromise can didate. Senator Conkling, he thinks, i3 only strong in 'the ability to derange the plans of those whom he deem his rivals.' The corres pondent adds : 'Trie two men to whom the 4emocratic nomination to-day is possible are Hendricks and Thurrnan.' The northern radical papers are delighted witli the judicial elections in .'South Carolina, naturally enough, for it is another draft of bitterness the 'nnhappy whites of that State are made to drink. The pcopb of the State, "who .know the parties, are in ao exultant mood. Gov. i Moses, known as the robber governor, who narrowly escared the penitentiary, is one of them, Wrirht who is made Supreme Court Judge, is a full blooded Michigan negro with a bad reputa tion. Shipper is another , negro, is known as "a notorious drunkard, thief and gambler. The others are white Bcallawags, and the less said aboat their fame, tire better. The election of sucli men is a stigma up on the party that endorses it. It is more than a civilized people are bound to endure. . . . i J Blaine Working for Party Capital and the Presidency. TThe recent effort " of ex-speaker Blal ne to exhume the cold corpse which all statesmen had agreed to bury; ; to flaunt the bloody- shirt and shake,; to horrify, the raw head! and bloody hones of the : warr- wili not rebound to'- that gentleman's glory. We thought in this 'ceiU tehnial year a fraternal spent would he welded between the Northern and Southern sections of the coun try. That all would hence-forth strive to make our common country glorious and blessed. But it seems the average radical is not yet willing ta let go that political trump card. If Mr. Blaine supposes his presidential prospects are improved by such in temperate speeches in the national legislature he has but to scan his party journals to discover his error, notably Harper's Weekly, which has recently come out against the third term. The democrats kept their temper admirable, and we have reason to be proud of their course. Our concressman from the Metropolitan district, Hon Jos. J. Davis, threw some hot 'shot n Blaine's locker. We append some general opinions from various jour nals, as showing public temper: 'Mr. Blaine's ambition has da feated itself,' says the Baltimore Gazette. 'The people of the United States naturally object to Grant s playing poker witi the crowned heads of Europe on the Cuban question,' is a casual observation of the St Louis Times. The Philadelphia Times echoes the plaint of Col. Sellers : 'It is getting to be more and more a mys tery how anybody at Washington manages to preserve his virtue though perhaps the majority only go there after they have lost it.' Politicians should weigh well these words of the Springfield He pnblicari: 'This centennial feeling in the air, this new and ardent sen timent of fraternity in tbe hearts of the people, cannot but affect poli tics. If is not to be prudently ignored or underrated. It may yet precipitate very unexpected results.' Says the Philadelphia Telegraph (Republican) : 'We esteem if rea sonably certain that the average sentiment of the country, while it disapproves the ex-Speaker's argu ment to except Jefferson Davis from the action of the amnesty hill, will cordially approve his proposi tion to reinstate the persons left affected after the various amnesty acts of Congress. Baltimore Sun : 'Mr. Blaine and his party instead of indulging this malicious and revengeful spirit, might better be repenting of their own ferocious cruelty during the high carnival of passion from which all judicial feeling was banished, in which they sent Mrs Surratt to the gallows, and in which they re fused to defer the gratification of their infernal dispositions until rea son could resume its sway.' Harper's Weekly, which has been dealing the third term scheme some sturdy blows of late, having been hard pressed by the New Yor k Times to state whether it would op pose General Grant if renominated, unequivocally answers Yes ! Where of the Times grows solemn, and severe, and takes it for granted that the Weekly would support a rag money Democrat. Now let Mr. Curti3 press the Times to a square definition of its position, says the Baltimore Gazette.' Literary Piracy- , Col. Donan, in the Raleigh Sen tinel of the 12th inst., makes some startling developments regarding the reputation of J. Proctor Knott, the great congressional humorist from Kentucky. We agree with the colonel that there can be no more heinous a crime than that of plagiarism. When the toiling edi tor has sweated, fussed, fumed and perplexed his brain, at last pro ducing something worthy of peru- sa', only to have it stolen to make fame for another, he has a right to expose the theft. Zence we think' the editorial fraturnity should rush forward to his assistance. Bead what he says. J. PROCTOR KNOTT. ; The papers are gabbling over all the proa and cons of this individ ual's appointment as chrirman of the congressional judiciary corns mittee.: We are not disposed to arise any . knotty points' of order or policy against this Knott on the democratic legislative log. We simply proposo to state one ' fact. J.: Proctor Knott's whole claim te national notoriety rests upon two speeches made in congress. One was on the finances, the other on Duluth. With his Duluth fanfr- onaae we have nothing to do. But i widely published and- langhed- nt financial spread-eagle was stolen htcratim et verbatim et punctuatim et every other atim, from a long and laboriously prepared article in the Lexington (Mo.) Caucassian, ot a few months before. ' It was writ tea by the present editcr of the sentinel, and contained many curious calculations in regard to the national debt how many thousand miles beyond the moon it y would reach in one-dollar bills pasted end to end how many times it weuid girdle the earth in twenty-dollar gold pieces laid edge to edge how many miles above the clouds it would towar in silver dollars piled flat upon each other how many two-horse wagons it would load in gold and a hundred other fantastic computations, based on weights and measurements with which we had bothered every jeweler of our ac quaintance for days. The article appeared in the Caucas ian of March 19, 1870, and was sent marked to many prominent poh ticians, north and south, J. Proctor fCnott, of Kentucky, among the number. During the session of congress in the winter of 1870-'71, he made himself famous asaquam and comical financier, by rising in his place and declaiming that two column editorial without ch an ging a figure or a comma; every idea, word and syllable ours. And we suppose it stands recorded in the Congressional Globe of that day, as his speech, while we have before up, at this moment, the Caucasian, of eight months previous, contain-, ing it. Wo denounced Mr. Knott at the time, as a brain pirate, a thieving bummer fattening on other men's wit?. It was, and is always, a crime that admits of no apology. It's base, shameful, inexcusable, the most heinous form of robbery. Steal an editor's pocket-book; and, if it's like most of them, you get worse than trash, a batch of old hashery and washery bills, tailors' duns and sich, and nothing more. Steal his good name; and in ninety- nine cases out of a hundred, you take what he never had, and ne"er cared or deserved to have. Steal his wife; and,' in multitudinous in stances, you do him an incalculable service, on for which he would gladly write you a first-class obitu ary, with all the poetic embellish ments, free of charge. But steal his brains; and you leave him poor and wretched indeed a defenceless dove in a world of keen-witted, swift-winged and sharped-beaked vultures a sickly, fleecleess lamb in a wilderness of wolves and jack als. Orthodoxy teaches us that perdition is bottomless; but we thought and, after five years' calm reflection, still think that, in the performance we have detailed, Mr. J. Proctor Knott, of Kentucky, demonstrated the falsity of the doctrine and struck bottom. And 'that's what makes U3 'spise a mule;' that's why we desire, even at this late day, to put ourself on the 'con' side of the discussion as to his fitness for the chairmanship of the judiciary committee. Our Washington Letter. Washington, D. C, ) Jan. 15tb, 187C. $ JEditor Southerner : After occupying nearly two whole weeks in discussion of the question as to whether the Senate has the power to elect a Presi dent of the Senate pro tempore when by the exigencies of circumstances that important officer has been removed, and after having been as it were in a fog about the matter, when both Democrats and Republicans be -came hopelessly mixed np in what would appear to a looker on a most unpardonably stupid manner, that august body the Sen ate of tbe United States, baa at last decided by a vote that it hat tha right to elect a pre siding officer whenever such an officer shall become necessary, and that such office shall not be a sinecure, but be subject to the will of the Senate. This is substancially the result of the la bors of the Senate for a whole week. In the House a warm and spirited contest has been going on daring the whole' week oyer the Amnesty Bill. This bill, most ap propriately introduced by Mr. Randall at the beginning of the Centennial year, and bearing in all its features the very essentials of good will between the people of all sec tions of the country, was no sooner offered at tbe Clerk's desk than it was attacked with all the violence and venom of which the Radical party is capable. Mr. Blaine, with a blind fury and hatred that he will live to regret, assailed the people of the South with a vindictiveness only equalled by his utter abandonment of reason. There are thousands of good people both North and South who have read and listened to these stories of prison outrages by both sides until they are sick and tired. We all know there was coffering enough that could not be corrected, and thee people have long ago said "Let there be an end to this; wheth er it be true or not it is passed, no good can ever come of its re-recital, and we can never become friends again if this crimination and recrimination is to be kept up" And the feelings of this class of people, who may be found in both political parties, have Deen excited, their minds disturbed and troubled and all the bad passions of which they - are possessed harrowed np to their own damage and misery by his diabolical effort on the part of Mr. Blame to rlly together around himself the ultra radical leaders of his'parly. And thh. was not patriotism though he would seek to throw that cloak about it. It was simply party spile, and Mr Blaine would see the country plunged again in strife if only A could occiipy the highest seat from whence to look down upon it. All this opposition to the amnesty bill was simply for political effect, and already some of the gallant speeches made opon the floor in favor of the passage of that bill have been ordered to be printed by thousands by the Republican committee to be sent through out the country to be garbled and distorted before the gazing multitude at the political meetings in the coming campaign as the sayings of rebells and traitors ; and thus the Republican party under the leadership of Blaine expect to frighten the whole conntry into Radical rule again. But it won't do. It is too late, as we shall see. The amnesty bill has been defeated for the present, and what will the people of tbe country sayl -"Does this look like peace V "Is this to be" our Centennial reunion t " Mr. Blaine in his excess of bilteines for got to be cautious, ami he Las ruined w hat ever prospect lie ever had to be President of tbe Uuited States ; and he will find before many months that there will be no more unpopular mar. in this country than him self. The temporary defeat of the amnesty bill by the Radical party is political capital for the Democrats, and will produce a revulsion of feeling throughout the whole country to tbe damnation of thoso men who dare to stand in the way of lecousiliation. This is the record of one week here, the two houses of Congress having had no other business of moment before them. a. American Genius. bloody 6c Sankey. The great revivalists, Messrs. Moody and Sankey, who electrified staid old England with their eloquence and enthusiasm, are fair samples of American genius. Sprin. iug from among tha common people, their sym pathies are alive to the wants of the whole people and herein lies the secret of their great success. Those who seek to be popular must study and be fan.iliar with the wants of the' masses, and prove loyal thereto. To this fact we may trace the grand success ia busi ness, at, well as in religious undertakings, which many American have achieved. Stiik ngly illustrative of these suggestion is tl '., igreat establishment, located at Buffalo N. Y and known as the "Worlds Dispensary." a most appropriate name, indeed, for that vast institution, within whose walls are manu factured remedies which are in demand in every quarter of the globe, and at which a corps of distinguished physicians ana sur eeons, under the personal direction of Dr. Pierce, are constantly administering to the needs of thossands ot sutterers everywhere, and whose succf ss in the treatment of all :orms of chronic ailments has become so well known that there is scarcely a hamlet in the land in which his name is no, familiar, It's proprietor, says the 11a aid and Torch light, of Detroit, "is a man of the people, writel for them, and to them tenders his eminent professional services." His advertisements are earnest exhortations. Like the great revivalists, his enthusiasm is multiplied by the unnarlaileled success ct his enterprise. as well as by the efficacy of his remedies in curing disease. The people Mic e in him and his remedies, because, as the New York Tribune says, "he syirpathizes wi'h them in all their afflictions, efforts and attainments." Hence, Dr. l'ieice's Gulden Medical Discov ery is to-day more largely employed as a Wood and liver medicine, and also a cough remedv. than anv other remedial agent in tlin world. His Favorite Prescription, he does not recommend as a "cure-all," as is so often done by compounders of worthless. humbus nostrums, but to-- diseases ana weaknesses peculiar to women it lias proved itself so much ot a specinc mat it now en joys great popularity and universal confi dence. Dr. Tierces rieasaiit rurgauve Pellets, "scarcely larger than mustard seed," have proved so agreeablo and reliable as a cathartic that they ni) rapidly taking tne place of the large, nauseous pills heretofore so much in use : while his Compound r,x tract of Smart-Weed is a favorite remedy for Colic. Cramps. Summer-complaint, Di arrhoea. Dvsetiterv. Choleia. and Cholera Morbus, and also as a liniment. Of lt base's Catarrh Remdv. and Dr. Tierce's Nasal Douche, little nted be sr.iJ, is they are known everywhere as the greatest spec ifics for Catarili and ''co'd in the head," ever given to the public. And besides this large measure of success, Dr. Pierce seems likely to achieve as great reuo'.vn as an author as he has as a physician. His Commox Sr:ssE Medical Aivisi:k, a Look of about 900 pages, wjich he sells at the un paralelled low price of Sl.GO, has already been sold to the extent of exhausting two editions and conntivg to forty thousand coppies. The secret of Dr. Tierce's success, as well as that of the great rvivali-ts, and scores of othor Americans, who by their genius have advanced s.ep by step troiii ob scurity to affluence and distinction, consists in treating the people with consideration, sympathy, candor, and hor.esty. No man, who hopes to attain either wealth or dis tinction, can afford to deal unfairly with the world or be indillorent to the wants and best interests of humanity. NEW ADVERTISEMENTS.
