Chrirnian. April 20th 1S70. At the recent election in Min neapolis. Minn., the ballot boxes were decorated with flowers in honor of the ladies who voted. The smallest man in Connecticut is dead. His name was 'Colonel' Carey Stocking. He lived in Cromwell, was G4 years old, and only three feet high. There is an establishment at Passau on the Danube, where eggs are dried. They are said to equal fresh eggs for omeletes and for making pastry. After a hot municipal contest at New Orleans on Monday the democrats succeeded in electing the Mayor and five out of seven councilmen the first democratic victory in that city since 18G7. Belle Plain, Iowa, claim the smallest woman in the world Mag gie Minob. She is eighteen years old, twenty-six inches high, and weighs thirty-one pounds. Tom Thumb is six inches taller. A substitute for the postal card under consideration by the Post effice Department. It is a stam ped sheet, of about note-paper size, with a gummed edge, ta servo as both paper and envelope, which is to cost two cents. The Washington medal, which was given to Washington by the Continental Congress on the 27th March, 177G, and was recently purchased by Boston citizens for 5,000, was formally presented to the Boston public library by May or Cobb last Saturday. Ilere's an argument in favor of cheese. Prof. Peck says that in this country, where cheese is least used, ons physician to every 500 persons i3 required. In Switzer land and countries where it is most used, ouly one physician is needed for every 10,000 persons. The Russian Government lias in contemplation a railroad through Central Asia over 2,000 miles in length, the estimated cost of which is $200,000,000. If this enter prise is commenced it will open a very considerable market for steel rails and railroad supplies. Journalistic. The Beaufort Eagle makes it ap pearance for the first time upon our table, and from its neatness and Well -written articles we have no doubt it will do yeoman service in the coming campaign. It is Dem ocratic in politics. We have received the first num ber of the Virginia Citizen a radi cal paper just started in Petersburg, Va. It is gotten up in good typo graphical appearance. The New York Herald says : IIow Pleasant is the harmony of the democratic leaders compared with the throat-cutting amoEg the republicans ! IIow would it be if Blaine or Conkling were to be elec ted President? Neither could offer the other a seat in the Cabi net. The administration could not well get on with either of them as the leader of an opposition. Would it not be well to have a Ccngres Biorjal committee of 'harmony V The rank and file of the party have the right to say that, before the armies go into action, there should be reconciliation between the cu manders. Let Brutus and Cassius come togerther. The Norfolk Virginian saya : The large quantities of fish from the fisheries on the coast of North Carolina has necessitated th run ning of boats daily on the Black vrater Line, to Franklin, and every day the freight trains on the Sea board Road arrive with hundreds of boxes of fish, which are opened and iced by parties, who make this a spring business and realize a very gcod percentage by charging com mission per box, and are then shipped to the various Northern markets. The latest outrage of the Radi cals comes to us frcm Jones county A poor old blind pauper, a white man, is compelled to take up his aboad with a negro. It seems, as we learn from the Magnelia Record that 'the officials put out the pau pers to the lowest bidder, and des cent and respectable, but poor, uns fortunate females were bid for by low, mean, dirty negroes who are scarcely able to feed them, and a poor blind man was actually knock ed off to a negro.' Is such not enough to ehk'TEe sensibilities of every decent white man in our country. The Statesville American claims that the Republican party has re duced its promises to return to specie payments, by the law just put in force to issue silver small change. In the first place, this is the work of a Democratic Congress. In the next, the American ha3read to little advantage if he has not discovered that the issue of silver is in no wise a return to specie payment, but the issue of a metal now so debased in value that it is worth less by 10 or 12 per cent, than greenbacks while gold is worth as much above. Until sold and greenbacks are made equal in value, specie payments will not have been resumed, and silver will only enact the part of a very pretty substitute for the shin plasters so long in use. A. T. Stewart's Penal Codo in His Store. A lady writes thus from New York : A gentleman of my ac quaintaace having met with a re verse of fortune, thought himself very lucky in obtaining a place for his son as cash boy at Stewart's, and right gladly the boy entered upon his duties, but he only remain ed a week in his employ. When he went to receive his pay, he found that not only wa3 there no money due him, but that he was in debt to his employer, having been fined more than his week's work amount ed to. -11 he was a second late he was fined; if his boots were not blackened up to the regulation shine he was fined ten cents; if ae leaned on the caunter he was fined ten cents. There were so many finc3 imposed that the boy said he got afraid to breathe for fear of be ing fined ten cents. All this was very paltry for. a great house like Stewart's but his employees all tell the same story. Why Bristow will not do for the Re publican Candidate- The Cincinati Times says ; The party lines are drawn almost as closely this year in 1860. The republican party will demand a candidate whose record in the fierce struggle of the past will convince the people beyond all shadow of doubt that the great cause for which wc have done and suffered so much is safe in his hands. Thi3 require ment places Mr. Bristow utterly out of the question if he had ever been in it. A southern born man, with dangerously pleasant relations with the Bourbon democracy, no political record, and no political experience, there is no more possi bility of his being teken for a re publican leader in this campaign than there is of the Roman church taking an unknown Protestant for their next pope. Th ese are the reasons why Blaine and Conkling, enemies though they be, would unite agains Bristow; and the same reasons will apply to all the really republican dele gates in the convention. Mr. Bristow's support will be from those who have been enemies of the party since 1872. A Shocking Murder. The most cold-blooded and dia bolical murder we have read of for many days wa3 the killing of Gea. Howard, an old and honored citizen of South Carolina a week or so aco near his home. Ilia murderers, three negro men have been arrested and confessed their crime. They had iio malice towards him; in fact it was not supposed he had an enemy on earth, being loved and respected by the entire community in which he lived. But these ne gro fiends with no other motive than the posesion of a sum of money they believed he carried upon his person, stationed them selves upon the roadside and killed their fellow man without warning ! They rifled his pockets and the pitiful sum of fifty cents to be divided among the three, was al1 they could find ! For fifty cents, they committed a cool deliberate murder, dyed their hands in human blood and left a stain upon their consciences that all the waters of time (should they escape the gal lows) can never wash out. Cost of the Csnt9imial. At the third annual meeting of the stockholders of the United States Centennial Exposition, held on Thursday last, the Treasurer made aa approximate statement of the financial condition and pros pects of the enterprise, as follows : 'So many agencies are in action drawing the various parts of our preparatory work to a close that it is impossible to speak other than approximately of the outlay. Wb see no reason to vary the estimate heretofore made, which was 8,500, 000, from the beginning to the final winding up. It must be borne Ma mind thfc tjjexnnditmes in cident to an exhibition on so large a scale can in advance only be given conjecturally. The whole outlay will be provided from the following seurces: State of Penn sylvania, 1,000,000; City of Phil adelphia, 1,500,000; concessions, gifts and interest, 500,000; stock subscriptions, 2,400,000; appro priations by theUnited States, $1, 500,000. As this shows a deficiency of 1,500,000, that amount must be supplied fram admission fees.' The Bird Law. We publish below the bird law which was passed by the last Leg islature, and now in force, for the' benefit of those who have forgotten or are disregarding its penalties : AX ACT TO PROTECT BIRDS IN THE COUNTIES OF DAVIDSON, RAN, DOLPH, ROWAN, AXSON, WAKRE.V GUILFORD, ROCKINGHAM, fO RANGE CASWELL, MECKLENBURG AND EDGECOMBE. Section 1. The General Aasemlly of North Carolina do exact, That it shall bo un lawful to kill or shoot, trap er net, any partridges, quails, doves, robin, lark or mocking bird or wild turkey in the above named courties, between the first day of April and the first day of October ia each and every year, and any person so offend ing shall be guilty of a misdemeanor, and on conviction thereof shall be fined not ex ceeding ien dollars for each and every of fence. Sec. 2.

Sec. 3. This act shall be in force from and after its ratification. Ratified the ISth day of March, A. D. 1875. Blaine's Mistake. A Washington dispatch of Ipril 28th says : It seems to be the general opinion here among im partial men of both political parties that Mr. Blaine made a serious mistake when he determined not to ask for an investigation of the tran saction by which '(4,000 was taken from the treasury of the Union Pacific Railroad, in the purchase of 875,000 of the bonds of the Little Rock and Fort Smith Ilail road Company. The very reason he gave for no' asking for such an inquiry will probably in the end prove most unfortunato for him. Thejiouse will unquestionably or der such an investigation, and it will just as certainly be a protrac ted inquiry. Therefore it was of vital importance to Mr. Elaine that he should have had it begun at as early a dato as possible. And even if the house does not order such an investigation into this par ticular transaction it i3 bound to be reached in an indirect way, for the judiciary committee was instructed months ago to inquire generally in to the conduct of the Unin Pacific Railroad Company, and to report whether it had been guilty of any thing which worked a forfeiture of its charter. This is the broadest sort of an inquiry, and a sub-committee has already been appointed to take this whole subject into con sideration, and has actually summon ed witnesses to appegr early next week. This inquiry will begin with an examination into the subject of the lost bonds, and incidentally the matter of the $64,000 transaction must come up in this connection. Our Washington Letter. Washington, D. C, ) May 2nd, 1876. $ THE CANDIDATES. Senator Thurman'a Ohio friends are becoming very active in his be half, and while they anticipate a sharo fitrht in their own State, they claim to have soourod a coa3iderabld strength for him in other States, and if they can control Ohio, they expect to present the Senator at St. Louis with a good backing. The New York men are jubilant to-day ovr the unan imous declaration of the New "York convention in favor of Tilden. Just what the friends of Governor Hend ricks are doing is not apparent ; but it is to bo presumed that a strong backing is being irganized for him. Speaker Kerr is pledged to his sup -port ; and tho House organizadsin his interest. If he is not nominated at St. Louis, it will not be for .want of friends. I do not think, however, that personal popularity will influence the convention, unless it bo accompa nied by absolute strength, with the people. Tho Democratic 'party were never mora thoroughly in earnest, and determined to nominate a man they can elect, than now. All the indications point to an harmonious action at St. Louis, in the interest of the party as a whole. Sectional differences are less prominent every day ; end good feeling, and a willingness to sink per sonal preferences for the general good, are expressed on every side. TUE LAST OF TUB CAE! PET-BAG 8ENATOES is probably George E. Spencer, of Al abama, whoso election was recently investigated by a Republican Senato rial committee. The bucket of white wash has been duly prepared, and will probably be dumped into the Senate by Morton, Chairman of the Commit ee on Privileges and elections, within a week or ten days. That Spencer procured his election by cor rupt means no ono doubts ; but the Republican members of the commit tee strenuously objected to any other testimony than would bo admitted in a court of law, and tho result was that Gen. Morgan, the counsel for the Alabama Legislature, found him self hampored at every turn, and was not permitted to introduce any testi many, even though conclusive in ifs nature, which could bo excluded by the strict rules governing loal evi dence. The majority of the commit teo went so far, also, in their efforts to protect their radical colleague, as to poremtorily decline to summon several witnesses named by the pros ecution. Of course tho minority, Messrs. Bayard, ,Merrimon, and Coop er (Democrats) dissented from the ar bitrary and unjust ru'icgs of Morton and his confreres ; but their pratests were of no avail, and the result will be two reports jno ia favor of, and ono against, tlia carpet-bag Sen ator from Alabama. A man of no ability, and believed to be thorough ly corrupt, Spancar is despisoi not only by the Democratic Senators, but by tho Republicans who profess to bo his friends. Tha latter will con tinuo Spencer in hi3 position not be cause they bolieva that he is entitled to it, but because their majority in the Senate is so small that the loss of a sin,;lo Senator, just now, would de prive them of a vota which they nod on many occasions, when party lines are not rigidly adhered to, and some ol their number, Edu:unds, Chrisli ancy, Paddock, and others, fall into a line with the Democrats. locisiana's scalawag senator. Since investigations and personal explanations seem to bo tho order of the day, it is somewhat strange that the notorious Senator from Louisiana, J. 11. West, ha3 not ioilowed tho ex ample of tho illustrious Uiaine, and denied the long list of charges that have been made through the press against his honor and integrity us a man and a Senator. These accusa tions have remained unrefuted for mouths, and the public begin to be lieve they aro true ia ovtry respect. From the New Orleans Democrat, however, it would appear that West proposes to resort to tho courts for redress, and has instituted a suit for libel against that paper. In refer ring to this course of the Senator, the Democrat says ; Our Washington correspondent telegraph3 us that West proposes to sue tho Democrat for libel. We are uot informs.!, however, for what specific truth we have told we are to be sued. Will West sue us because we proved him to be a former, and published the evidence of the fact 1 Or wi!l Le sue ns for printing the truth about his viilanious life in California during the war'! Or will he ue us because we exposed the fact that he co-operated, for a prize, with I'abcock and Porter to have Billings appointed judge 1 Or will he sue as because we Lave told of his running off with the funds of a New Or leans fire company before the war 1 Or wiij he sue us because wo stated, what every man in Louisiana believes to be a fact, that he bought his election to the United States Senate for thirty-six thousand dollars? It will be seon, by the above para graph, that the Donucrat is not much alarmed at the prospect of the threat ened law suit. THE BELKNAP IMPEACHMENT TEIAL promises to bo a tedious affair. Al though the defendant's counsel failed in their efforts to get the casa post poned to December, they do not ap pear to have lost confidence that the re-sult of the trial will be favorable to their client, through legal techni calities. Ex-Senator Carpenter, the senior counsel for Belknap, is thor oughly interested in tho case, and will avail himself of every tachnicality to prevent the conviction of his client. Judge Jore. S. Black and Hon. Mont gomery Blair are associated with him in an advisory capacity,but Carpenter, being on friendly terms with all the Senators who were formerly his col leagues, and knowing just how to handle them to the best advantage, is put forward as bost calnulated to influence the decision of the Court Carpenter, whila a favorite with the Republican members of tho Senate, secured the respect of the Democrats by speaking and voiingwith them on many important questions, notably tha question of the admission of Pinchback, the dusky aspirant for Senitsrial honors from Louisiana. He was not in the Senate, however, when the final vote was taken, but his constitutional argument against Pinchback's admission was one of the most powerful protests that came from either side of tho chamber. If allowed to do so, he will introduce much testimony of a negative charac ter. Major General McDowell and other prominent army officers will be introduced to testify that they have always regarded Gen. Belknap aa ah honest man, and never knew of a dis honest act on his part ; in fact the defence will bo long and elaborate, unless the Senate confines itself, as it should do, to the only relevant ques tion. "Did Belknap, while Secreta ry of War, sell post-traderships ?" If tho Senate allows the counsel for Belknap to introduce a mass of neg ative testimony, the result will be A LOSG SESSION OF CONGBESS. Tho Senate has already evinced a disposition to non-concur with the House in its recommendations in re gard to reducing the expenses of the Government, as embodied in the va rious appropriation bills. The House is determined to insist on economy, and the Senate seems as fully set on defeating all reductions. The result of this mu3t be a session extending far into the summer. Aside from this thero are many other important ques tions before Congress which will elic it extended debate, and necessarily prolong the present session. Gen. Crook telegraphs Gen. Sheridan, at Chicago, that the In dians at the Red Cloud Agency are very near starving on account of neglect in forwarding supplies, and that unless immediately re lieved they will leave the reserva tion in good temper to raid upon the white.
