A copy of the full-length paint- ing of Lafayette in the" Capitol at Washington, by Ary Scheffer, has been purchased in Paris by a member of the Bunker Hill Monu- tnent Association, and in its behalf, from the window of a French officer who was an aid-de- camp of General Lafayette.

Jardine, of Point Moul lere, Mich., is said to have educa ted five wild ducks to a very fine point. They go where and when they please, come at call and ac company their teacher to the hunt ing grounds, either perched on the bow of the boat or swimming by its Bide. Arrived at the marshes, they act as dcoys, splash and call until they attract flying ducks, which come down and are shot, while the tame ducks 'stand up' in the water, shake their wings and scream with delight. The day's sport over, they either fly home or ride iu the boat, as Mr. Jardioe directs. The ihdianapolis Hews thu3 in terprets the voice of the people : "When the people condemn Grant ism it does not mean a condem nation of General Grant only, it means as well the coterie which has aided and abetted him, and which has bean mainly instrumental in strengthening and perpetuating the evil influences and methods gener alized under the term Grantism. If the administration is to be judged all these who participated in it must be judged ; and if it is to be done away with all such men as Butler, Morton, Conkling, Carpen ter, and many others must be done away with as well as Grant." Connecticut Election. At an election held in Connecti cut on last Tuesday for State offi cers, the Democrats made a clean sweep throughout the State, el. Ci ting ingersell, Democrat, by 3,441 over the Temperance and Green back cadidates. A marked democratic increase has taken place in the Legislature. Last year there were 15 democrats in the Senate and 6 republicans. In the House of Representatives there were 136 democrats, 105, re publicans and 4 independents. This year there is a democratic majority of over 80 upon joint ballot. ' . . ej, Fifty-Three Saturdays and Sundays, ' , " There are fifty-three Saturdays -J ' and fifty-three Sundays in 187b. ' J So those employers who pay on Saturdays will have to pay their hands for fifty-three weeks' work, This circumstance also affords one more day than usual for people to attend church on and preach and be preached at. We don't know when there will bo fifty-three of these days again in one year, but 1881 j3 te have fifty-three Satur- days, and 1882 fifty-three Sundays. Aged Indians. The Macon Telegraph says that a traveler recently from North Car- oliaa relates that there is an aged Indian couple living in Cheerih, Graham county, who also propose years, and the sauaw. Nahih, 130 years. Both are in vigorous health, possess all their faculties intact, and are full ef ancient reminiscences They aro Cherokees, and were born J ' -ithi four miles of the place of ft residence. The man recollects perfectly the declaration of the Revolutionary war and the proclamation of peace. The Evidence Against Belknap. It is stated that the House Jud' ciarv Committee arree in the opinion that the testimony given by jjn Marsh before that committee i3 stronger than his testimony be fore the Committee on Expendi tureg jn tne W"ar Department, and that it is so conclusive of Genera Belknap's guilt he cannot escape jjhe Committee on the Judiciary igo nave te testimony of Mrs Marsh and several others, who were previously examined by the Com mittee on Expenditures in the War DeDartment. It is believed that the Judiciary Committee will form ally present their articles of im neachment this week. Genera Belknap, with his family, remains closej at hom6) receiving but few v sitors Eadical Attempt at Sensation, The National Requblican pub lishes an anonymous article which alleges that Col. S. D. Pool, the present Superintendent of Public Instruction, i3 a defaulter for a con giderable amount in th9 Peabody fund. The best evidence that th whole thing is void of truth, is the fact that the writer has not civen his name, and that the charge first appeared in the kitchen organ President Grant. All of these accusations against prominent Democrats, are simply being cir culated to divert the mind of the country from the Radical villainy that is being daily unearthed al over the land. We believe tha the charge against Col. Pool without the shadow of a foundation and is false throughout, for every other State officer at the capital is a Republican, and if he had been guilty of any irregularity in office, they wouldj hive shown hira up long ago. The New York Tribune brings to light one of the worst of the many nefarious schemes connected with the coming Centennial exhibition, it appar3 that letters have been sent from Philadelphia to young girls in the inland towns and villa ges, signed by "Hayes, Arlington & Bro., Agents for the Executive Committee," stating that they wish 10 engage "comely and resf ectable young ladies" to take charge of flow er and news-stands, act as cashiers in refreshment departments, sell pictures, books, etc. Wages of from $8 to $15 are offered, besides expen ses paid and a "chance to see the grand exhibition every day." The girls are advised not to consult their parents, as they might object to even so advantageous a scheme ; but are requested to come to Phila delphia at once, when their work will be assigned them, and wages paid in advance for four weeks. The tetters arc lithographed and have been sent out in great numbers. The object of the scheme is apparent to any woman of ordinary sense and experience ; but, unfortunately, gid dy girls in the country, anxious for adventure and a glimpse of the world, have not enough of sense or experience to keep them from being entrapped by this shallow device into rnin. Newspapers, therefore, would do well to warn their readers against "Hayes, Arlington & Bro." promptly, as the would-be clerks and saleswomen are requested to repair to Philadelphia by the 13th of April. Grantism is repudiated even in Washington. At the Convention of the Republicans of the city, held there on Monday, Mr. Sayles J. Bowen was chosen one of the dele gates to Cincinnati in the face of the opposition of the late District ring and of the office holders. The President hates Bowen, and his f ictory in the Convention is an evidence of the unpopularity of the administration. The principal com petitor of Bowen was Brooks, the editor of the 'organ,' and the author of nearly all the articles that ap pear in columns defending the ads ministration. The .President, we may be certain, used all his influ ence in favor of his favorite editor, but it was no use. He was de- eated. From the St. Louis Times. Last Words of Eminent Statesmen.

A tanner won't last you more than eight years Babcock. Qar Washington Latter. Washikgtok, D. C, April, 3rd 187G, The Democratic caucus bill was of fered on Tuesday last, by Mr. Payne of Ohio and on a motion to suspend the rules received only 81 votes to 150 against it. Nearly all the votes for the bill were from the Democrat ic side of the house. But as was pre dieted in previous letters neither the Hard money nor theer te greenback among the democrats, men voted for the bill, and it is now thought that the finance question will be dropped as Reno sometime since suggested The acuteness of the Republican par ty leaders has never been more con spicuously displayed than in the way they have handled thia finance ques tion. They have had absolute control of all of the department of the gov ernment for fifteen years and were the authors of the system of finance, "the direful cause of all our woe," and now they deftly make of it a Wooden Horse, to introduce confusion into the democratic citadel. Their Rich ardson's chase, and Boutwell, could not grapple with the monster they had cooked and they evaded it. Now that the democrats control tho House whose duty it is to grapple with such questions, they force the issue and denounce the Democrats as "i petent," because they do not at once settle a question which republicans have been unable to in years of effort The Democrats would do well to fol low the example set them by the re publicans for so many years and for the ptetent ignore the finance question Their whole efforts should bo tore- store honest aDd efficient government when this is done it will be time enough to discuss abstruse questions cf finance. Success can only be at tained by perfect anuity and that can not for the present bo had upon this money problem, therefore it should be severely let alone. One of the house committees has leen investigating the management of the government insane asylum and it has been shown that while one body of republican patriots were spec ulating upon the bones of dead sol diers, another set have been making fortunes by feeding insane men and women upon rotten beef and mouldy bread, clothing them in rays and for cing them to live in filth that would turn the stomach of a well bred hog. Such patriots should be in the lan guageofthe Cincinnati platform 1872 "relegated" to private life. General Caatar has been before the committee on war expenditures and has testified to the corruption of post- traders and to the manner in which IUVT WfcILJV VUVVt W HUM UVtUlVIO kV I enable Ihem to make money enough o pay Orvill Grant, Belknap and the j other black -mailers. Several of the Post traders have testified to their having been assessed and forced to ; pay sums ranging from one to four hundred dollars for political purposes. With the whiBkey ring busted and the post-traders feed from this system of blackmail the campaign fund of the Republicans will not be so large as it was in 1872.

There has been more "crookedness" in the navy, than in any other department, but it is harder to trace because Eobeson has covered up his tracks too well, Whittmore is on his track like a Sloth-hound and will bag his game before long. Attorney General Pierrepont seems to bs on "the ragged edge," for not only is the committee disclosing some very discreditable facts as to 4! partinent, but there has arisen a quSS tion of veracity between him and the President as to the letter written to the District Attorney in relation to implicating -witnesses and which Bab cock stole a coppy of and published. The articles of impeachment against Secretary Belknap have been propos ed and reported. The evidence Is amply sufficient to convict him and the trial will commence next week. The House is now holding night ses sions to consider the executive, legis- ative and judicial bill. Some opera t.sN. Ii n haan rf 11170 1 Anai I nmn-nrv tha 1 iiuu u9 fcuui I democratic memoers.

This is an in. cresting question that ha9 never vet been before the Senate and the judgment on it wul be look- ed for with interest by all parties.

The bill making Bilver dollats a legal tender in all sums up to fifty dollars, and Smaller silver coins in all Bums to twenty nve dol lars, passed the houso on 1 nday. The Treasurer is authorised to issue these coins for the redemption of fractional currency.

It is said that the Czar of Russia will eoon abdicate in favor of the Czaroveitch. The former has been the steady friend of the Emper or William and Bismark and the lat ter is well known to have an antipathy to every thing German. Several of the .Russian papers are openly advis ing the Servians and Monteregrins to assist the Herzigovimans. ihe Czar oveitch is one ot the ablest Generals in Europe and is supposed to have sat military ambition. The pur- great chase of the Suez Canal by England to strengthen her position in England and the great accesion to the power of the German Enterprise have arous ed the jealousy of the Russian, and it is thought that this movement por tends an effort to extend the Russian Empire to the Bosphorus and consoli date its power by establishing a Sclavio empire on the borders of Germany. Such a resolution upon the part of Russia would plunge all Europe into the bloodiest war of coun tries. Neno NEW ADVERTISEMENTS. IT AT A. WHITLOCK'S, JILL BE SOLD ACCORDING TO TI1E TIMES.
