The receipts from internal revenue
Saturday were $420,320. and from
customs, $044,248.
Thus the money is being taken
from the pockets of the people and
placed in the treasury which already
has a large surpios over and above
the amount required for the expenses
of government. Every mail brings us
letters saying that money is so scarce
among t inner* that they can scarce
ly afford the trilling cost of this pa
per, which they regard of more value
to them than any other publication.
The (iovermuent is actually paying
0.4 per cent, i kkmii m for bonds bear
only 4.V i>er cent, which are not yet
due. Thus we have the remarkable
^ spectacle of a people distressed by
excessive taxation, when their (lox
ernment already has a larger reve
nue than it requires. Taxation is
not reduced because, aud only be
cause. the politicians are afraid to
Antagonize the millionaire class. It
seems scarcely credible, yet such is
tlie fact, that the people have not in
telligence enough to bring to the
front men who will serve them as
faithfully as the railroad politicians
serve their corporations.
\V. T. Lewis, Master Workman of
the National District Assembly No.
135 of Miners and Mine Laborers,
gave au interview on the 27th to the
Philadelphia Record. He said:
“The men are clamoring for Free
Trade as they are disgusted with
Protection, which their employers
have been telling them would secure
better wages and improve their con
dition. I'nder Protection their con
dition has become worse. 1 be
miners in the Anthracite region, 50,
000 in number,demand an advance of
15 per cent. The Anthracite < oal
Poo!, we presume, will refuse the
advance and thereby bring about a
strike. A strike will curtail produc
ed thereby furnish an opportunity
t i advance prices.

The l\ S. California Circuit Court
has decided that Senator Stanford, |
President of the Central Pacific R.
R , cannot be compelled to answer
the questions propounded to him by
the Commission appointed by Con
gress to investigate that road. The
Commission inquired whether any
of the money, which the railroad
had collected from the public, had
been used to influence legislation.
Stanford refused to answer. The
< ourt held that Congress has no
right to confer jurisdiction on the
Court, in an inquiry which is not
judicial. Senator Stanford is sup
posed to be worth $75,000,000 ac
cumulated in railroad management
within 20 years. IfStandford was
worth ouly $75 Congress would soon
find a way to make him answer.

Hamper's Ferry, August 21).
Mr. Editor.—“Enough is as good
as a feast” as the old saying is, and
as there ean be too much of even a
good thing, we have refrained for
some time from referring to the new
enterprise at this place because this
subject formed the principal burden
of so many of our former communi
cations, and we are as much opposed
to monotony as y ou arc to monopoly.
The work progresses nevertheless,
and flourishes without the aid ot our
favorable notice, and wc suspect that
it would do so if we were gathered
to our fathers. The Shenandoah is
now dammed across its whole width
and the massive head-gate complet
ed, leaving little to be done but the
erection of the mill which, it is
thought, will be in full operation
long before the sun reaches ( apri
cornus. We do not pretend to under
stand much about such operations,
but we hear from competent judges
and we believe that Mr. Quigley, the
engineer in charge, has achieved
quite a triumph.
The Right Reverend J. J. Keane,
Catholic Bishop of Richmond, Va.,
arrived at this place on Saturday, J
and on Sunday he preached an elo- I
quent sermon to a large audience.
Bishop Keane is one of the most ac
complished men of the day, and the j
opinion entertained of his ability
and learning is so great that it is
understood he will be removed Irom
the charge of this diocese to super
intend the new Catholic l niversity
to be located at Washington, I). ( .
This learned prelate has traveled
extensively and to very good pur
pose, for he has studied closely the
manners and habits ot the various l
nations among whom he has so
journed, and the wide and varied
knowledge acquired in his very ex
tensive reading has been enlarged
and strengthened by his intelligent
observation. We once rode in his
company on the railroad from Mar- ,
tinsburg to Sir John’s Bun, and in
less than an hour learned more than
we ever did before or since by a
month's study.
We have now at this place two
brothers—ministers—one of the
Methodist Episcopal Church and the (
other ot the Presbyterian. They i
are Bov. (1. II. and Frank '1'. Me Fa- ,
den, sons of an honored minister-of j
religion now deceased. They arc on
a visit to their widowed mother who
resides in our immediate neighbor- ,
hood. These gentlemen were our ;
pupils in past years, and we count i
them among the many promising
young men in whom we take a pride,
inasmuch as we helped to lay the
foundation of their usefulness. The ;
older of the brothers—George Harry j
—is in charge of two congregations
near Norfolk, Va., and the younger
Frank T—is about completing l»is
course at Hampden-Sidney College.
The latter has just returned front
Louisville, Kentucky, to which place j
he received a call to preach during
his vacation, and the impression he
made there may be gathered from j
the fact that his congregation, at a j
meeting called for the purpose, voted j
him, in addition to his salary, a fine j
gold watch, a handsome traveling i
satchel and his railroad expenses i
while on his return home on the ex
piration of his term. Once before j
in a letter we took occasion to re
mark with pride on the great num
ber of young men we have launched
successfully into life. Thf fruits of
our labors arc seen in all the learned
professions and in other walks
equalh' useful if not quite so preten
tious, but as might be expected from
the dogmatic turn manifested in
these letters we shine with especial
lustre in Theology. There are two
or three Jewish Rabbis and more
Christian ministers scattered
through all the denominations than
could be counted on the fingers of
Briareus, the hundred handed, who
confess their obligation to our teach
ings. They differ widely among j
themselves on many subjects, but
there is one thing on which they j
agree unanimously—indeed they re j
ganl it as an axiom—that the old j
man is all right anyhow, and with
this assurance we are in good heart,
as any reader'who condescends to
notice our humble efforts can plainly,
We regret to record a painiui ne-,
cident to Master T. Beale Miskimon,
sou of the Rev. II. K. Miskimon—a
much beloved minister of religion,
now deceased—and grandson of Mr.'
T. W. Beale of this place While1
returning, one day last week, from a
gunning expedition, he noticed an
approaching showerand took refuge
from it in the store of Mr. Hill near
the College. By some means the
gun slipped from his hand and, the
hammer striking heavily against
something and an explosion taking j
place, the index linger of his right j
hand was badly shattered and the
middle finger seriously burned. Drs.
Cockrell and Gannon rendered the
necessary services, amputating the
one finger ami dressing the other,
and we are glad to know that our
voting friend is fast recovering trout
his painful wounds. The sufferer
is a remarkably promising boy and
he lias the sympathies and best
wishes of the whole community.
One night last week the clothing
store of Mr. Joseph H. Myers of this
place was broken into and a quanti
ty of gf»ods which we can only ex
press by X. for it is unknown, was
stolen. No clue to the thief has yet
been obtained. The mills of the
(iods grind slowly but surely, and
wo have.an abiding hope that the
many thefts committed around this
place by unknown parties will yet be
avenged. An Irislt judge while sen
tcncing a culprit remarked forcibly
that, though justice moved with a
i.eaden foot, when she did catch up
with a rascal she struck with a
cast-iron toe. We can promise as
much to the first thief caught here
at his depredations, and if we had
our wav we would sentence the man
who robbed Mr. Myers to wear the
heaviest of the stolen overcoats in
such weather as we had here a few
days ago.
The heat has abated sensibly,and
many believe that we will have an
early Fall, but August is not over
yet awhile, and we are inclined«to
the opinion that the fresh, crisp air
of the last day or two is due to the
frequent passage of the ice cream
wagon along our streets and the
great quantities of the cooling lux
ury dispensed in every direction at
lawn parties, church festivals and
picnics. Our summer visitors begin
to leave, but you can see that they’
are loath to part with our romantic
village and the pleasant associa
tions at the place, and that when
obliged to do so they east many
longing, lingering looks behind.
Every evening a crowd of them as
sembles on Cemetery Hill and gazes
with ever increasing admiration on
the sublime scenery of the passage
of the rivers through the Blue Ridge.
In front of them the once imprisoned
streams leap and tumble through
the opening achieved by the patient
labor of uncounted ages while the
cleft mountain frowns grimly from
either side on their gambols, but lit
tle do thelanghiug waters regard its
menaces, for they mean to enjoy’ the
liberty so bravely wrested from its
it on grasp, and they hasten w ith tu
multuous glee to the bosom of their
parent Ocean. The Moon is now’
favorable to the View and casts a 1
mystic, dreamy light over the stu- .
pendous scene imparting a weird j
beauty to its awe inspiring sublim- j
ity. And let us not omit from the |
picture the noiseless city of the Dead
at their side—more eloquent in its
silence than a thousand homilies—a
mute but most impressive witness to
the instability of life and the utter
vanity of human pursuits and am
bitions. Although this place has
long been celebrated for its natural
beauty and the salubrity of its air.
it is coming more and more into no
tice every day, and its many’ other
attractions are enhanced by the his
toric iutcrost attached to it by the
events of the last three decades.
