'if ire had only had another thief

Crimes have been unearthed at
the Tewksbury (Mass) Almshouse

An election'will beheld in Con
necticut on Monday, the 3rd of
April, for State officers, a legisla
ture that will choose a U. S. Sena
tor for the unexpired term of the
late Senator Frry, and a Con
gressman for the unexpired term of
the late Mr. Stark-weather. In
view cf the approaching Presi
dential election it is anticipated
that both parties will use their
uttermost endeavors to gain a vic
tory. In the House on Friday, says
the Richmond Whig, while the
question of fixing the salaries for
Congressmen was up, and after
many amendments had been offered
and rejected, Hon. Rer. Douglas,
of Virginia, moved to fix the
amount at $3,600 per annum, and
remarked that so far as the ques
tion of rich and poor was concern
ed, he might say for the southern
element particularly, 'The poor
ye have always with ye.'
The Charleston News and
Courier seems to have the most pro
found contempt for the majority in
the South Carolina Legislature. It
says that the House is composed of
rascals of the very smallest calibre,
and who are incapable of risinj- t.
any distinguished height in villainy.
There is nothing on the bonanzi
order in their theft, it is petty lar

The Emperor and Emperesscf Brazil
Embark for the United States
March 26, a special from Rio
Janeiro says the Emperor anl em
press of Brazil embarked at 8 A.
M., on board the steamer Hevilus,
for the United States. The Prin
cess Imperial and Count Deu ac
companied them on board, and thv
chief civil and military authorities
attended the embarkation. The
Hevilus collided with a Brazilian
naval transport as he moved out
of the harbor. No lives lost. The
Empress was crushed against the
door of the cabin, though not much
hurt. The Princess Dona Isabel

theEmperior and Empress.
A Washington correspondent of
the Baltimore American of thi
morning says: 'Col. John S. Mosby
called on President Grant to-liv.
He represents that thj Prosia.'ru
stated to him in conversation con
cerning the third term, that r.o ma
ter what his views of fceli'ia, mht
heretofore have been on that sub
ject, that he had no desire now, nor
vrould he under auy circumstances
accept another nomination, if it
were proffered hira. Alluding U
the Congressional investigations,
and particularly to the exposure of
Gen. Belknap, he stated that he
"had no doubt but that Belknap had
been seduced into the suaro by wo
men.' Wasting Its Tine.
A New England administration
organ says 'the House his waste.-:
away its tims in a must disgraceful
mau.cr,' whero upon the Baltimore
Gazett- resp-.s; U : -lYcLniy i
Wis a was-b of time to t 'low h r.
Belknap was swindling the poor
5oldicr3 on tho frontier and making
money out of the graves of dead
union soldiers in the national ceme
teries; probably it was a waste of
time to show how Orvl Grant, the
brother of the President, is the paid
solicitor and agent of a score of firms
in different citiss, to obtain con
tracts at exorbitant prices for worth
less good3 from the government;
probably it was a waste of time to
prove how the country has ben
swindled out of hundreds of thous
ands if not millions of dollars in the
PostoGce Department of Justice,
and in almost every other branch
of the service. The organs cf the
administration may think this a
waste of time, but the people who
have to foot the bills look upon it
in an entirely different light. Doubt
less they knew all about it. They
shared in the spoils, but there was
a large number of persons who were
in blissful ignorance of the rascality
at Washington until it was unearth
ed by the present House of Repre
sentatives.' Out of the thirteen centennial
Democratic candidats for the presi
dency, which the New York Herald
so graciously selects, we think tho
successful competitor for the nomi
nation will be either Hendricks, of
indiana, or Tilden, of New York.
Mr. Tilden is deserving of much
praise and consideration from his
party. His friends can well boast
that he is a great reformer, for not
only has he remedied evils com
mitted by the republican party, but
also has broken up the can
kerous evil the "Tammany Ring"
of his own to Democratic party.
If the Democrats in the National
Co lvention should favor hard money
then Samuel J. Tilden stands forth
pre-eminently. Sheuld they leave
this money question unsettled, then
we hold up T. Hendricks, of In
diana. For besides being a man of
talent and honesty a weighty con
sideration, he can ride both horses
on the inflation question without
being accused of having too much
love for the Rag Baby, or an ear
that takes too much delight in the
metalic ring of the yellow lucre.
Let the party give us Hendricks,
and lie will be carried to the White
House, Grant and Conkling to
North Carolina and her Sons.
Gen. Lee in his final report of
the battle of Gettysburg, thus refers
to the lamented Gen. James John

Falling Waters :

of great merit and promise, was
mortally wounded.' Brig. J. R.
Trimble, of Maryland, in the March

'So far as relate ; to the good

Compulsory Schools, a ''Beast" in
Mr. Editor. The following is
a paragraph cut from the Sings of
the Timet, published at Meddleton,
"Tho Compulsory education ex
periment is giving rise to consider
able trouble in Boston. The pub
lic schools in that city are kept open
on Saturday until noon. The news
paper? report that some time since
a little girl of -Abrahamic descent
was arraigned before a police court
on a charge of habitually absenting
hers :lf from school on Saturday.
When her case was under considera
tion her futher appeared to plead
in her defense, and stated that as
Saturday was the Jewish Sabbath
he and his family attended divine
service on that day. This, how
ever, had do weight with the dis
penser of justice, who pronounced
the girl guilty of a violation of the
compulsory education act of Mass
achusetts, and sentenced her to
undergo an imprisonment of three
months in a reformatory. If this
is progress, it is progress backward,
and in the direction of the blue
laws and the dark ages."
That State takes the lead. In
the city of Boston, they have be
gan the persecution, and made war
on tho god-given-rg hts to parents
and have tern from their embrace
a daughter and put her in prison
for three months for violation of
the school law. The little girl's
disobedience was her father took
her on Saturday (The Jewish Sab
bath) to divin-wership. Massachu
setts, no doubt has pleased Presi
dent Grant who recommends Con
gress to amend the Federal Consti
tution so as to compel the separate
states to have just such Compulsory
Schools, Parents, are you willing
to give up your children to be edu
cated by such Tyrants 1 Tyrants
will never raise up children in the
fear and admonition of the Lord.
Massachusetts ! the land of mor
ral Ideas and blue laws to puseeute
witches and bluc-lights to the ene
mies in 1812 are twin brothers of
the beast spoken of in Rev. 13th
Chapter, and is the first to give
strength to the least, so the nub of
its' horns are seen and felt in the
land of blue laws. It seems to me
that no compact or law suits them
but the law of Tyrants. The Con
stitution of the United States was
a 'covenant of death, and an
agreement with hell,' and no law
but their own moral ideas seems to
be the higher law that all men must
bow down to tho Tyrant beast. If
Congress shall give heed to the
wicked devices of . false prophets
and false teachers and amend the
organic law so as to force the sepa
rate States to do as Massachuetts,
then I believe the day is not far
distant when there will be great
lamention and morning with moth
ers and bloodshed by fathers in this
once happy and prosperous states.
I hope God will give us honest and
capable statemen to guide and

arrived, on Wednesday and has been
before the judiciary committee. He
does not seem entirely, assured of his
safety, for in giving his testimony, he
is restless and uneasv : This is the
result of the action of President Grant
and Attorney General Pierrepont
Marsh says that Mr. Clymer did not
tell him to go away and that he had
no intention of leaving: the country
when he left Washington. So that it
appear that all the at use heaped on
Olvmer for Marsh's disaonearance is
mere radical venom. Mrs. Marsh has
also testified and there is such a chair
of evidence from a cloud of witness
testifying to substantially the same
facts, that the correction of Belknap
is assured. The committee it is said,
will report the articles of impeach
ment on Wednesday.
Ex Senator Stewarts testimony be

wlck (see Charles Dickens reports),
ike Ei. (Senator clothes his answers
in useless verbiage, that would require
the ingenuity of one of the proverbi
al "Philadelphia lawyers" to discover
the meaning. He evidently believes
with Sallyrand "that words were in
vented to conceal thoughts.
Minister Schenck is here but urr
to-day has been (so ho Bays) too oti
well to appear before the committee:
The kitchen cabinet organs have
delighted in harping on what they
cail the want of action in tho House,
yet they say nothing about an act
which originated in a republican Sen
ate a few days ago and which for
utter stupi lity, impracticabilitv and
want of statesmanship has not had
the parrallel since the session began.
I a'dudo to tha bill of Senator llam
liu regulating the trauamission of
third class mail matter. It will be
remembered what a faux pus the same
gentleman made last session when he
raised the rate on that species of
matter from one to two oents per
ounce. He now proposes a sliding
scale, making the price of this class
of matter depend upon the destina
tion it is carried, and the postmaster
is to be judge of the price. If adopt
ed such a law could only result, in
total cDnfossion, besides offering ad
ditional inducements and opportuni
ties to postmasters to steal. Every
newspaper ia the country is ridicu
ling thu proposed law, and its autiiors
name will be handed down as the
champion blunderer of the times.
Our post office must be wretchedly
managed as there is a deficiency of
ten million dollars.
It is-expected that the Patent office
will soon receivod the attention of a
committee. Ic teems to be admitted
ttiat no niduction should be made in
tlio force in this olf.ee, or in the pay
ot th'j clerks, because the office is
more the self sustaining and the em
ployees have to be skilled mon who
are entitled to good salaries. The work
of the Committee will be to discover
what disposition is made of the large
surplus received every year. It i
thought that some interesting devel
opments, of money paid to outside
parties, will be made.. The law re
quires that each department or bu
reau shall publish each year an exact
statement giving the name of each
employee and the amount paid to
each, together with other expenses
incurred. This has not been done in
the Patent office sinoe 1861, and there
is probably "a large sized bug under
that chip." Senator Conklin has vi
olated another law by appearing be
fore tho appeal board of the patent
office and making a caeo of interference
between patentees. Of course the Sen
ator, whose bare word could dismiss
any member of the board, gumed the
case. The insolence of Blaino as the
Republican leader in the House has
become almost unbearable and it
received a wholesome check on Thurs
day from Mr. Yeatman of North Car
olina, who depricated tho continual
use of the term "rebel" to designate
southern men in the confederate army.
Ho claimed for himself and his south
ern compatriots as much patriotism
and love of the union as was to be
found among the Republicans, He
showed that no sooner did a southern
man baconje a republican as Holden
of N. C. and Longstreet had done,
that at once they were no longer reb
els, all taint being removed, and that
tha only reason-for the use oft "this
term was that the people of the fcuth
would not accept the teaching of re
publicans. In other words that they
were "rebels," against republican
domination aad not against the
country. Nothing of interest has oc
curred in e'.ther House. The legisla
tive appropriation bill is being dis
cussed and will be passed as reported.
The Senate will not agree to it and a
grand fight may be expected.
