Raftsman's Journal.
Wayne M'Vcigh Esq., has been nomi
nated by die President to be Minister Resi
dent at Constantinople (Turkey), in place
of Hon. E. Joy Morris.
From tLe Falls City, Nebraska, Journal,
we learn that Frank. Barrett, Esq., formerly
of tills place, has taken editorial charge of
the Jiulo Register, a Dotuocratiu paper.
Success to you, FraDk.
Dr. Schoeppe, it is pretty certain, will

generally believed that Governor Geary will
not order bis execution until the Legisla

The postoffice at Alexandria, Virginia,
is under seizure, while a special agent is
investigating various charges against the
Postmaster and hia clerks, one being intem
plranceanl oglectof business. Wb.2Q the
agent took possession of the office, he found
a quantity of letters in the basement, which
bad been opened, some of then seven oreight
years old.
A late Texas paper says a band of Indians
a few days ago approached within a short
distance of the town of Lampasas. A com
pany of the Fourth Cavalry went out to meet
them, under command of Major llusscll.
The company was divided into two detach
ments, one of which met the Indians, and
in the fight Major Eussell was - mortally
wounded. The detachment met with some
While we sympathize with the starving
Fenians huddled along the Canadian bor
ders, in prison and out, we cannot see any
good reason fir the interference of our Gov
ernment in their behalf. Not only have
their misfortunes resulted from making war
on a people with whom wo are at peace,
but they have violated the law of the land
of their adoption to which they now appeal
for assistance and protection. Really, the
Fenian idea of justice and right is, to say
the least, a little mixed.
The rebel element in Louisana is terribly
excited over the proposition of Mr. Conway,
Superintendent of Education, to put the
new school bill into operation. It provides
for the establishment of public schools in
every parish throughout the State. The
rebel newspapers are prating loudly about
having their "old system" of education sup
planted by "carpet-bag" legislation, but
when it is stated that prior to the warhere
was not a single free school in the State, the
"pld system" will not be deeply mourned by
the friends of progress.
TheFenians have returned home disgust
ed, leaving only their leaders behind them.
These are in the hands of the United States
authoritias, and to all appearance are there
like'y to remaia for some time. The Goveri -went,
'to the surprise of many, does not look
upon tLe raid as a joke or ho liday excursion
and prosecutes the leaders with rigor.
Though this may be greatly to the discom
fort of the leaders, it is indirectly for the
benefit of the masseaof Fenians, who will
thus have, fewer Head Centers aud Treasur
ers to deceive them in the future.
The New York Herald characterizes the
late election"iti the State of New York, so
far as affording a test of the strength of
parties as "a Democratic victory which
signifies nothing." From official returns
from most of the counties, and generally ac
cepted estimates from the rest, it appears
that the whole vote cast will not exceed
430,000, against 829,776 cast in 1SGS, show
inga lefieiencyof419,776, or about one half
of the vote of the State, which loss the stay
at-home Republicans count two hundred
and fifty thousand and the Democrats one
hundred and eighty thousand.
The accumulated evidence from all parts
of Mexico reveals the condition of that coun
try in every sense deplorable. Financially
bankrupt, socially demoralized, and political
ly disrupted, there is protection neither for
property nor persons. Trial by jury is sus
pended and special taxes are levied by mere
Governors of States. Brigandage is a fa
vorite occupation of dissatisfied citizens and
defeated politicians. Congress is without
authority and the President without power.
We bad hoped braver and wiser thinga from
this, peoj le after the expulsion of the French
and we reluctantly confess to grave disap
pointment at witnessing this result of repub
lican rule in that unfortunate couhtiy.
A Democratic contemporary takes the
House of Representatives neverely to task
for its action in excluding from the veterans
to be pensioned by a proposed bill tho.e
who were disloyal to, the country during
the late rebellion. Say this organ of the
party which is al way full of excuses for the
late rebels: "The soldiers of the war with
Great Britian were old men when the re
bellion broke out. They were unfit for ser
vice in field or camp, and at most they could
barm their old flag, under which they
fought and bled, only by mumbling disloyal
phrases." Age has commonly been regarded
as the period of wisdom. We certainly
never before knew it to be pleaded in ex
tenuation of crime. If these veterans were
too old to fight either for or against the
nation, and could only mumble, they ought
to have remained true to their patriotic
rccoid, and at least mumbled in favor of
Lo;r fTirttry.
The Census.
The blank schedules, to be used in taking
the census, are in the hands of the Assistant
Marshals,' some of whom have already com
menced operations. There are five sched
ules altogether. They embrace a wide range
of information. In order that our readers
may know what is required of them we give
a condeused form of these blanks. Let
each one familiarize themselves with the

Protecting the Ballot. The bill to
enforce the Fifteenth -Amendment, which
has passed both Houses of Congress, is
sweeping in its character. It imposes heavy
penalties not only on fraudulent voters, but
on all aiders and abettors in frauds at elec
tions on the judges and inspectors who
knowingly refuse to receive honest votes or
knowingly receive dishonest ones: or any
person who attempts by bribery, intimida
tion or threats to prevent any one from vo
ting, or from doing any of the acts necessary
to qualify him to vote, and on any person
who shall oppress or. injure another on ac
count of his vote. It gives United States
Marshals the power to arrest persons for
such offences, and United States courts the
power to try them, and it gives the Presi
dent authority to enforce the execution of
judicial processes under the act by the em
ployment of the naval and military forces.
It provides that any person, a candidate,
who has been deprived of his election by
reason of the denial to any citizens of the
right to vote, may bring suit to recover his
office in Federal or State Courts, aste may
choose. It provides also penalties against
persons who accept offices, knowing them
selves to be ineligible, and abolishes spe
cial State tax on Chinese immigrants.
B. F. Whitteracre, member of Congress
from the First District of South Carolina,
who was compelled to resien his seat to
avoid expulsion for selling cadetships, has
been re -elected. It is to be regretted that
his constituency did not select a more hono
rable gentlemen to fill bis place. Though
the Republican party cannot be held respon
sible, since a Republican majority once
promptly condemned him, yet it is discred
itable to the country that such a man should
be re-elected.
Decoration Day was generally observed
throughout the country, and was made a
more general holiday than heretofore. Thus
once more, has the memory of our fallen
heroes been fitly remembered by au appre
ciating people. May this day ever be sa
cred as a national holiday.

ly better fate was threatening the Domin-
Massacre of Jews.
A Constantinople dispatch of J une 1 st,
says that a fearful war of religious intoler
ance had broken out in the Province of
Roumelia, a metropolitan province of the
Turkish Empire', in the South of Europe.
On Sunday, May 29th, all the houses of the
Jews were invaded by the native "Chris
tians," and all the" Jewish occupants who
were unable to escape massacred in cold
blood. The Washington Chronicle, in re
ferring to this wholesale murder, says :
"Such a massacre, surpassing the horrors
of St. Bartholomew, is a blot on the age
and a disgrace on modern civilization. That
it should have been perpetrated by people
calling themselves Christians is as humilia
ting as it is amazing. Civilized nations
should lift up a loud and indignant protest
against this beastly outrage upon humanity-
Our own Government, we are glad to say,
has not been slow to manifest in unmistaka
ble terms its abhorence of these outrages.
S. Wolf, Esq., having yesterday, Thursday,
received telegrams from New York, Louis
ville, and Chicago, asking is assistance to
prevent the continuance of the outrages in
Roumelia, called upon the Secretary of
State, who ordered at once the appointment
of Adolphe Buchuer, Esq., as Consul Gen
eral at Bucharest, Roumelia. Mr. Buch
ner is an Israelite, and his appointment is
as positive action as the Executive Depart
ment of the Government could take to ex
press its abhorrence of the massacre."
The subject of this persecution and mas
sacre has already been introduced into both
Houses of Congreis. This prompt action
on the part of the American Congress will
have a powerful effect on the whole civilized
world in condemning this horrible butchery
of defenceless and inoffensive people.
Democracy in the Southern States is dis
covered to be as unregenerate as ever. A
late experience at Richmond may be accep
ted as pregnant with instruction for their
Northern friends who insist upon an imme
diate and sweeping amnesty for past politi
cal crimes. The municipal election in that
city resulted in a clear majority for the Re
publican ticket. The Commissioners, with
whom lay the duty of summing up the re
turns, happen to be all Democrats. Beaten
at the polls, what was more natural or easy
for Democratic officers than to ignore the
popular choice, proceeding coolly to elect
their own favorites by the familiar method
of doctoring the ballots. But even a Dem
ocrat won't stand too much ot that sort of
thing in Virginia, and the Whiff, an able
journal of the opposition, protests against
these illegal proceedings, denouncing them
as without a shadow of authority. The mi
nority ticket thus electioneered into place is
declared "not to be worth the paper it is
written on, and should be universally repu
diated." We commend the honest candor
of this Virginia Democrat, as an example
for the Democracy of our Somerset, or
Westmoreland, or Philadelphia districts.
Pittsburgh Gazette.
IIomkNkwspapehs. We have on more
than one occasion given our reasons why it
is not only the paramount duty of every
community to give a willing and substantial
support to its local newspapers, but also
why it is the best policy. The Xew York
Tribune gives the following sensible and
comprehensive views on this subject :
Nothing is more common than to hear
people talk of what thty pay newspapers
for advertising, tic, us so much given in
charity. Newspapers by enhancing the
value 01 property in tneir neignnornoou, ana
giving the localities in which they are pub
lished a reputation abroad benefit all such,
particularly if they arc merchants or real
estate owners, thrice the amount yearly of
the meagresum they pay for their support.
Besides every public spirited citizen has a
laudable pride in having a paper of which
he is not ashamed, even though he should
pick it up in New York or Washington.
A good looking, thriving sheet helps pro
perty, gives character to the locality, and
in many respects S a desirable public conven
ience. If from any cause the matter in the
local or editorial columnsshould not be up to
your standard, do not cast it aside and pro
nouce it good for nothing, until satisfied that
there has been no more labor bestowed upon
it than is paid for. If you want a good
readable sheet it must be supported and it
must not be supported in a spirit of charity
either, but because you feel a necesiity to
support it. The local press is the power
that moves the people.
It is announced that the great Papal
Council will proclaim the dogma of the in
fallibility of the head of their Church, on
the 29th of June. From the' same day,
will date a more general disbelief in its just
foundations, than ever yet led the world or
disturbed the Roman Church. In all the
nineteen centuries, there could be found no
bolder challenge to Christian enlightenment.
Congress is about to proclaim the neu
