Apropos of Chief Justice Chase's recent decision against the legal-tenders, the Boston Transcript says : "The man whose face is on what the Supreme Court calls 'irredeem able paper cunrency has some 'cheek to turn his back on his portrait. No man ever pronounced against his own issue to the ex tent of Chief Justice Chase." ."From the Vidette we learn that several robberiea were perpetrated in Jersey Shore on ndy night a week. 1 ho sate in a foundry was blown open, and the post-offic-i robed of about $M dollars the safe con tained nothing of vihie to the thieves. Tti us far the Jersey-Shoreites have failed to secure the long fingered Democracy that perpertratcd these deeds. The HVW continue it warfare on the 1 Tammany ring of New Vork, in a regular Democratic . slaughter-house fashion. It speaks of the sachems mildly as the thieves of Tammany," "the thieves of the King, it is ail aoout tne new etiar- ter for the city. lueJlerata nas tne place of organ to the wigwam. HoSfmau's troub les are beyond computation. In the Supreme Court at Philadlphia, on Monday a-week, in the case of Schoeppe vs. Com'th in Error to the Oyer and Termin er of Carlisle the court decided that, un der the statutes, the Supreme Court caunot review the evidence, nor can have anything to do -with 'the guilt or innocence of the prisoner, and therefore is compelled to af firm the judguient of the court'. below. .This left the- prisoner in the hands of the Sheriff for execution. Upon hearing of the 4eeisiofl of the Court, the Penn'a Legisla ture passed a law empowering the Supreme Judges to examine into the facts pnd the ev idence in criminal cases carried up on a writ of error. The Governor vetoed this bill but the Legislature passed it promptly by a two thirds vote over the veto. This being the law-now, it is presumed that Schoeppe's case will be brought before the court once . more ior review. Xlaftsmaii's - N-The Bible in Public itchools. . The Supreme Court in : Cincinnati,' last week decided the casein references' to the exclusion of the Bible from the public Schools in that city by the board of Education-' The Conrt decided agains the ru ling of the Board : and has made the injunc tion, restraining them from carrying it into tffect, perpetual. By this decision the courts declare that Christianity is a part of the comvion law, and that exclusion of the Bible from the public schools is a violation ofaiich law. This opinion is seconded by the unnMtt.ut.f ttif 1 1.1 t)ia .Inftr Jf lt,n'" StflfA . U - 'JU I "MU ' . -! .Lit. 11HJ V I L II U I V. J to care fur the intuligence and morals of I the people, aud that it is'nnlawful to strike down any of the, means which the ; world , recognize, or facts prove, essential to good government It is difficult, says a'co temporary, to meet this question in ' the l ijrht spirit, on account of the intensity of the feeliug stirred up by religona discussion. But reason should prevail. We look upon the deci.-ion of the Ohio courts as proper, it docs not even hint at sectarian teaching. This is left to enthusiasts,-' to those whose reasons are not so free as their passions and ptejudices.' By many it is supposed that the question just decided is the percursor of a Jiost which Catholicism threatens to drive down upon Protestantism. It is not our purpose to inquire whether this be true. If it is, Protestantism should not lay claim to this decision. If it, is not, Catholicism shriiiti not repine at it. The State must exist. . Religion is free to exist. - Let . this, however, be said, the Bible should ' never be driven from our schools of instruction at the -command of any sect or any party, In itself the Bible is not sectarian. It is the focus of ll sects. AH cluster around it ss Ihey would gather aronnd God in the end. When interpreted by The lip lit of sect, when preverted by perjudice, when corrupted by ignorance, then complaints a gainst its introduction into the common schools miirht with some ' plausibility be heard. But, looking upon it as a Divine law given to assist our understanding of the inner law which we are slow to discover, early habits of perusal should become one of the first elements of education Or, a gain, looking upon it as a repositoty of quaint history, as a cabinet of the purest and best English, as a work unexcelled for its poetry and pathos, it can never be over valued as a text-book. Why, then-, should it be expelled ? Reason cries out against it. We suspect the obstinacy that insists upon its removal. ' ' . i -r , - The "Border" Claims The Bill, introduced into the State Leg islature, providing for the "payment of dam ages caused by Lee's invasion of Pennsylva nia, is a somewhat suspicious affair. It au thorizes, first, a loan by the Commonwealth of $750,000, and provides also that the see-' ond and fifth sections of the art creating the loan for the redemption of over due bonds, approved February 2d, 18C7, be made ap plicable to this loan, in addition to the a uount raised by the loan; the State Treas urer is authorized to pay upon the claims aforesaid out "of any moneys in the State Treasury, five hundred thousand dollars on the 15th of March, 1S70, and thrsc hundred thousand in June and December each year thereafter, until the whole amount of said claims has been paid. It likewise names certain persons in the counties of Adams, Franklin, York, Perry, Fulton and Bedford, by whom "the said claims i-haU. be examin ed and approved." The appropriation of a sum sufficient to pay all juxt claims of the kind referred to.might possibly receive gen eral approval; but the Bill before the Leg islature has some features about it which make it appear as if it were designed more for the benefit of the lobbyists who have it in charge than for those who had their proerty destroyed or injured by the invad ing Rebels. Be this, however, as it may, it will do no harm to have it closely scrutin ized by those who are running the law-inak-' ing machine at Hanisburg, before they cast their votes in its favor. The Franking Privilege. The bill lot .f,c repeal of the Franking Privilege, in the slia? " which it passed the House of Reprei?ntatir?8 at Washing ton, provides that nothing be C."111111 ted free in the mails, and hence, if-it be"" comes a law, postage will have to be paid on newspapers sent to subscribers residing in the county where published, and the edi tors of papers will also have to pay postage on their interchanging publications. It is doubtful whether a single individual, who signed a petition for the repeal of the frank ing pririrge, supposed that the bill would be made so sweeping in its provisions ; and the only exp!anati m that suggests itself for the course pursued by the House, is, that the members of Congress were in a pet about the abolition of a privilege to which they cling with unprecedented tenacity, and therefore determined to make it as odious as possible to their constituents for which t Ley may possibly fiud themselves remem cered in the future. The Senate, we are glad to see, manifests a disposition to change the Bill so that the free circulation of papers to subscribers in the county where published w ill be continued as at present. The murder of Dr. Livingstone, the Af rican explorer, which was reported a few dsys ago, is not believed by the most com petent authorities in England, Sir lloder if i- i? iii i, ic jiurciusou, nimseii an old African ex plorer, publishes a letter iu which he denies the probability of Dr. Livingstone having been at the head of the Congo river, ninety days journey from the mouth, where, accor ding to Captain Cochrane's statement, he was burned by the natives as a sorcerer. From what is known of the eourse Dr. Liv ingstone iutended to take it is impossible that he could have biseu iu this locality by the time indicated. . k 5 It is believed that the current investiga tion, into the alleged sale of cadetships in the Military and Naval Academies, will re sult in clear proofs against nearly a doxen members and ex-members. If the effect should be to check an evil which has been flagrant for years, the enquiry will be sus tained by public opinion. A Bill to) restore the Spring elections is before the Legislature. The popular senti ment is clearly in favor of the retention of the present system. Otherwise; provision must be made for spring registrations. Is the repeal of the registry-law a part of the Coalition'programme? The anoexed para graph from the Bedford Inquirer very fair ly expresses the opinions ot by far ths larg est number of the journals of-the State. The Inquirer says : We hope there will be no interference with the present law until it has had a fair trial. .The people have not yet had time to get accustomed to the change, but if it is continued a year or two and t airly tested, we do not. believe they will wish to return to the old Spring elections. A vast amount of time and money is saved by the present arrangement and the elections fall at a much more pleasant season. We can see no good reason for a change at present and we hope there will be none. , , Somewhat Mixed.. Politics In New Hampshire are getting slightly mixed and muddled. There are four tickets in the field the Labor-Reform ,Tem oerance, Dem ocratic and Republican. The Democrats are doing nothing for themselves directly, but are quietly patting the Labor-Reformers on the shoulder, while they keep their own ticket in the field, as the best mode of distracting and defeating the Republicans, which is not likely to happen. But, should the Labor-Reformers, with thu aid of such allies as the Temperance men and Demo crats, come out of the contest victorious, it might be well for them to remember a cer tain fable of the cat and monkey the point of which turned upon who should roast the chestnuts lest, perchance, they should find a victory with such aid rather worse than a defeat. - ' Nef.D8 Stampiso. Many persons sup pose that after having received a letter ad dressed to some friend or acquaintance, all they have to do to make it reach the per son (who has left the place in the mean time) is to change the address merely and drop it in the postoffice. The postoffice Department has decided that all letters in tended to be forwarded must, after having passed from the custody of the postoffice, be prepaid by stamps in the same manner as though the letters had never been taken in the mail. If they are not so prepaid they are held for posatge and sent to the dead letter office as unpaid matter. Texas. It is gratifying, says the Wash ington Clironicle, to see the vigor with which Texas wheels into line iu the great work of establishing impartial suffrage. No other State has ratified the fifteenth amend ment with equal unanimity the vote being 70 to 8 in the House and 24 to 2 in the Sen ate. The work of reconstruction in Texas goes harmoniously forward and will be com pleted next Teusday (yesterday) by the e- lection of United State Senators. May .we uot hope that, should the Senate ever get through with the case ot Mississippi, the very clear record of Texas will secure her a speedy admission ? The House Committee on Ways and Means now propose to reduce the revenue form the tariff about $20,000,000, and that from internal revenue about $30,000,000. This action, it is said, meets with the ap proval of the President, and will be received by the people with universal satisfaction. As the currency during the coming year will be much more valuable than in the preceed- ing, it is safe to say that the revenue col lected would be fully equal to that of last year, and, besides, the productive interests of the country would be relieved to the ex tent of at le-ist fifty millions of dollars. Thk Question Solved. The warm weather ot the present wiuter is accounted for. The astronomers are responsible for it. They have recently discovered that the sun is actually four million miies nearer the earth than was previously supposed, and that, instead of ninty-five million, the ac tual distance is only ninety one million miles. But for the timely discovery of this impor tant fact, we might have gone on in miser; able ignorance and had cold winters for ever. Let us give thanks to the astrono mers. ' The U. S. Navy.

Giving Them a Chance. A resolu tion which, if passed, will test the popular ity of the woman's rights doctrine among women, was introduced in tho Illinois Con stitutional Convention a few days since. It provides that there shall be submitted to the women of the State, of the age of twenty one or over, a separate constitutional a mendmcnt giving to them the right of the ballot. If this amendment receives a ma jority of the votes cast, it is to be considered a part of the Constitution. The New Jersey Senate, following the bad example of the Representatives, last week rejected the FfteentL Amendment by a vote of Vi to 8. With characteristic in fatuation, the Democrats voted against de mocracy, and recorded themselves in the negative. Bishop Simpson said in one of his recent lectures that while in Europe he never trav eled with a German student without being told that he (the student) was saving mon ey to go to America, nor rode with an Irish man that did not ask, him if he knew his cousin !

The subject of building associations is being agitated in Johnstown, Altoona, Huntingdon, and other places. Why not here ? chnnlendomovitchowegin means love among the Choctaws. Almost anywhere else a word ot that size would mean business. Calcutta was illuminated on the occasion of the visit of Prince Alfred, and an undertaker embla zoned "Welcome !" over his door Dr. Chapin says that every young lafly should jump at the chance of marrying a mechanic. Uirls don't Jump unless they are scared. It is said that "James (lorion Bennett never made a speech, never voted, never was naturali zed, and is still a subject of Queen Victoria " It is understood that the coming census will be taken under the regulations adopted in 1850 mod ified t suit the new amendments to the Constitu tion. A man attempted to sUirl a writing school at Denver, last month, but they maje bini turn it into a saloon, not wautiug any '-fangles in this town.".

In North Carolina the law permits a husband to iufliut "reasonable (?) corporeal punishment upon bis wife." Wonder it this is the reason so many people are going to North Carolina. The Csb,in the Miami river lately got on a ben der from distiller's slops turned into the stream, whereupon some hard hearted speculator oaugbt a wagon load of them and sold them to the people of Miltord Rutland.

The Mexandria Minn ) Pott speaks of a new kind of legal tender, namely. muskiat skins which bave recently been an active medium of circula tion among merebants. The catch has been large, and furnished many a family with groceries and provisions.

A Minnesota editor feelingly says that he dis likes to see an old man with one foot in the grae and tbe other on the brink, tottering along in a beastly state ol intoxication, stumbling every now and then over unseen obstacles, and then blaming the slippery sidewalks for his misfortunos.

If we are right In tne pro sumption that the former class ineludes all ot her non-Lutheran christians, thus removing the disa bilities of the Catholics, we must regard this act of wise toleration as a long step in the advance of enlightened civilization. The Roman Catholics of San Francisco are building an earthquake proof church. It is to be constructed in such a way that if the roof should be shaken down it will fall outside of tbe walls, thus preventing eatastropho within, if perchance a congregation should bo worshipping at tbe time. It does not appear which way the architects intend tha walls shall fall. It is reported that the Russian Government has sooeeeded in securing the servioes of the most ex perienced inventor of ammuniiion in the world- Colonel Boxer, of the English arsenal oy a sal ary of 000 pounds a year.
