Persons leaving the city for the sum mer can have The Republican mailed to Hi em by leaving their address at the business office. And now Depew is trying to ring in on Conkling's shoulders. It won't work. Mr. Conkling is of no consequence now all gone to pieces. That's why the Tribune and others never say anything about him. If he had great strength left they would he constantly making unkind references to him. A Virginia correspondent of the New York World says that General "Wickham 5s respected by both parties there. Does he mean both divisions of the "Bourbon army ? The two parties in Virginia are Bourbons and Readjusters. Two years ago the Sew York Tribune daily and coarsely denounced Loren B. Sessions as a thief, and now defends and eulogizes him for having tried to buy a legislative vote for $2,000. The Tribune may have had some of the pork. Raines, the Ontario mcii.ber, votes for the King of the New York Central Rail road lobby, Channcey M. Depew, for Sen ator because he says the Grangers want Depew. It is thus that the rats once united to choose a terrier dog to ruleover them. As a itcLE, all that the organs represent Conkling as having said is of their own invention and intended to harm him in pnblic estimation. He has been more lied about than any ten other men in America. He never corrects a misstate ment concerning himself. ' Ei-Retiusestative Ruse, of AViscon sin, declines to be exiled by the Presi dent to Paraguay. The proffer to him of what he declined to take does not seem to have been followed by any appoint ment more agreeable The General looks hale, and is, as ever, a Stalwart Re publican. The testimony of "Lo" Sessions, the Adminislration-Reform-Railroad State senator at Albany, in regard to himself Is good reading. He is one of the great leaders of the Half-Breed crew who are too good to be represented bv Roscoe Conkling, and are willing to give as high as $2,000 a vote to beat him. Senator Edmunds has gone on a fishing visit to the Restigouclie, having received an invitation from the Canadian minister of fisheries to fish Tor Ealmon in a portion of that river reserved for sev eral years past for breeding purposes. Evening Star. "We should like to sec the papers for that. We don't believe the Senator goes grinning in a barn-yard or fishing in a breeding-pond. j The Administration crowd of cornip tionists at Albany have already bnried themselves in infamy. "When delegates are to be chosen to the next Republican State convention the Republican voters will not send the Sessions kind. The party will close up under its old leader- sliip, and the custom-house can fall in or bolt. The Half-Breeds are beginning to see by this time that the Stalwarts are Stal warts of the " don't you forget it" kind. The New York Times of yesterday had a very solemn article on the situation at Albany, its conclusion being that the Stalwarts are "in to stay," while the Half-Breeds are in for a stampede that may begin at any moment m Secretary AVlndom having declined to give the Evening Star the report of the in Testignting committee in the Treasury Department, that journal extracts from the refusal the news of what is in the re port. The Secretary having informed the Slar that no changes or removals were determined on in connection with the report, the nimble Twinkler at once de clares that it is not so, and intimates who will go. 1 Storekeepers and gaugcrs, as well as census clerks, have to be obtained for the Government by charity. There is no money to pay them, and unless their serv ices are volunteered without pay they cannot be had at all. The work will be done upon the hope that Congress will appropriate money to pay for it. When the proposition is made for that action there will no doubt be strong opposition to it by some heathen, who hope to be re-elected because of their efforts on be half of economy. But for such dema gogues appropriations would not so often fall short of the necessities of the public service. J. H. Rives, the internal revenue col lector of the eighth district of Virginia, resident at Lynchburg, in a recent con versation with a friend in this city gave it as his opinion that the opponents of coalition with the Readjusters would not have any considerable strength in the Republican State Convention. He said there was not the least doubt that the Beadjuster State ticket would be in dorsed by an overwhelming vote of that body. Mr. Rives is a Stalwart Republi can and a man of powerful influence in the councils of his party. He is able to do much toward the fulfillment of his predictions. Even legislative bribery can seldom be proved, and the refined processes of the "striker" make it almost impossible to obtain downright evidence against him. But men do stand and fall in such matters by their general reputations. The thieves are as well known in a legislative body as they are in a penitentiary." .Mr. Sessions's character is pretty well understood by every member of that senate which burst out into a delighted laugh when he eaid the other day by an awkward slip that he could "tell a steal as quick as any man going;" they know the character of the measures he fosters, the character of bis asso ciates, and yet it may be that no member of that body could absolutely prove corruption against him. There may be persons outside who could, hut the Tribiaie is not conducting a legal trial of Hr. Sessions; it is expressing its opinion of his Character as displayed in his public acts. Is it pothits for a man to grow gray-haired In the filthy work of the lobby and then set himself up as an honest man? SCac York Tribune, June 30, 1S79. Avery striking photograph, Mr. Tri JmneJ But why do you defend this same man Sessions now? You know he has been guilty of bribery in behalf of your hypocritical, canting Half-Breed cause. Your defense of him makes you his asso ciate in crime. One by one the roses 'ihdef The New Hampshire Seuatorsliip. Section 14 of the Revised Statutes of the United States reads as follows : The Legislature of each State which is chosen next preceding the expiration of the time for whi".h any Senator was elected to represent such State In Congress shall, on the second Tuesday after the meeting and organization thereof, pro ceed to elect a Senator in Congress. The Legislature of N.ew Hampshire now in session is not the Legislature above de scribed. Next year, long before "the ex piration of the time " for which Senator Rollins was elected, another Legislature will be " chosen." From the fact that this last named body does not assemble until three months after the expiration of Senator Rollins's term, it is contended by some that New Hampshire will be de prived of her equal representation in the Senate for three months if she obeys the Federal statute above cited. The major ity of the Republican members of the Legislature are of this opinion. A mi nority of the Republicans and the Demo crats are of a contrary opinion. The mi nority of the Republicans, under the lead of William E. Chandler, declined to sub mit the decision of this question of law to a party caucus. The senate on Tuesday voted that the present Legislature ought to elect. The assembly voted the opposite way. And so the sen atorial question in New Hampshire is dis poned of so far as the present Legislature is concerned. The next Legislature will be chosen long before the expiration of Senator Rollins's term, March 4, 1883. It will not meet in regular session until June of that year, and until then it will not be thcLegislature. A call for a spe cial session would simply convene the present body, which would, as now, be in competent to act. "Would the State there fore be deprived of representation? Section 3 of Article I. of the Constitu tion provides as follows : u If vacancies happen, by resignation or otherw isc, during the recess of the Legislature of any State, the executive thereof may make Tem porary appointments until the next meeting of the Legislature, which shall then fill such vacancies. If, then, on the 4th of March, 18S3, a vacancy luippens in the senatorial repre sentation of New Hampshire by reason of the expiration of Senator Rollins's term and the non-election of his successor, for reasons above stated the Governor of the State will fill that vacancy as author ized by the Constitution. This is not a new question in the Sen ate, having been decided in favor of the Governor's power to appoint in the case of Senator Bell. The Light of Experience. " No doubt ye are the people, and wis dom will die with you," says the Good Book ; and it also says : " Consider the former time, for that which has been will be again." In view of the sweeping re forms (?) now being attempted by Mr. James we venture to recall, for his edifi cation, a scrap or two of our recent his tory. The Forty-fourth Congress was overwhelmingly Democratic in its lower branch, and after it met and organized in December, 1S75, by electing Mr. Kerr to the chair, it turned its attention to the business of legislation. It was the first time for many 3'ears that the Democratic party had control of either branch of Congress, and the leaders, very naturally first considered the question : " How shall we so proceed as to tighten the hold of our party upon the es teem of the people of the Union?" After much discussion pro and con the following conclusions were arrived at: "The Northern and Western people are a close-fisted, economical, and thrifty people; with them the dollar is al mighty. They will readily condone every fault but that of extravagance. One reduction of taxes will cover a multitude of rascalities. Therefore we, the Democracy, will go in for economy and reform. We will cut down and shave every dollar of appropriation that we can. We will inaugurate a movement looking to a return to the ideas and practices of the earlier and better days of the Repub lic, and rehabilitate the stern virtues of the fathers of the revolutionary period. We will capture the hearts of the Yankees by a close-fisted miserliness that will banish forever all idea of increased taxa tion, and enable us to make a big show ing in the way of a huge balance in the Treasury. By so doing we will kill two birds with one stone, namely : Make a huge saving in dollars and choke off many a Republican who is now employed by the Government." These ideas origi nated with the Southern Bourbon leaders, who, with their old-time insolent con tempt for "the Yanks," imagined and insisted that the true way to secure the support of the Northern and Western people was to guard well their pocket books and prevent the tax-gatherer from making a raid on them. In pursuance of the policy thus deliber ately adopted, the Democratic House ruthlessly applied the knife to the appro priation bills for the next ensuing fiscal year, and remorselessly cut down the ap propriations, lopping off the millions till the appropriation bills became a bur lesque upon the very idea of legitimate and necessary appropriations. In vain did the heads of Departments assure that House that they could not cam' on their Departments on such beggarly allow ances; that the salary lists allowed them would not begin to hire employees enough to perform the necessary work. They were brusquely told that they must take what was given them and get along with it or shut up shop. Everywhere the knife was ruthlessly applied, and then Congress adjourned,leaving the executive officers to do the best they could, while the reformers went home to proclaim be fore the people their great feats of eco nomical statesmanship, and to invoke from them a commendation of their con duct. Well, we all know what the result was. The economic statesmen were cursed, and kicked, and cuffed, and spit upon, metaphorically, all over tliis broad land. A howl of execration met the recreant Representa tives everywhere, and, but for the dagger, the cord, the revolver, and the torch, the Democratic majority in the Forty-fourth Congress would have been changed to an overwhelming Republican majority in the lower House of the Forty-fifth Con gress. As it was, and with the aid of the illegal and murderous weapons above re ferred to, the-Bourbons just saved them selves by the skin of their teeth. An experiment similar to that described above is now being tried by the Head of the Post-Office Department. He is applying th e pruning-knife to the postal service of the country with a recklessness only equaled by the Democratic House. The only question asked in regard to a route is, " Does it pay ?" If not, abolish it; cut it off, no matter who is inconvenienced or injured. Every route must turn in enough money to defray its expenses, or be reduced till it tfoespay, or be abolished- entirely. Every bulletin from- the De partment contains more than one exam ple of this remorseless slashing of the postal service. From the foundation of the Govern ment an opposite policy has been pur sued. The very extent of our territory forbids the idea of a self-sustaining postal service; and the great statesmen of all parties have always recognized this fact and legislated accordingly, and the people have invariably sustained them in so doing. A deficit in our postal account never had any terrors for such men as Clay, Clayton, "Webster, Cass, Calhoun, "Wright, or Woodbury; and Mr. James will find that the policy pursued by these giants in statesmanship is the truepoliey; that the people will not sustain him in depriving communities of frequent mails merely because the route by which they received them does not pay its own expenses; that his twopenny policy will receive the same re ward at the hands of the people that the picayune policy of the Forty-fourth Con gress did, and that he will be over whelmed by a storm of popular indigna tion that will destroy him and all his future prospects as a public man. The people of this Union -will never sanction the idea that dollars are worth more than intelligence or rapid, frequent, and easy intercommunication. TnE public would like to be told how it is that anybody knows what the finding of the court-martial is in the case of Cadet Whittaker. The members of the court were all bound to secrecy. If the published statements are true that the court decided that Whittaker bit off his own ears, what member of the court dis honored himself by giving the informa tion ? If any one has so offended, will he be court-martialed? PERSONALITIES. Harrison Dixgmax, of this city, was at the St. James Hotel, New York, .yesterday.

London Truth says: "Jay Gould the other day drew a check upon the National Bank of Xew York for 500,000. This was not bad for a man whose whole fortune when he first went to Xew York consisted of a patent mousetrap." Wonder if our Bourbon friends refuse to take greenbacks because " there's a dn nig ger's" (Old Virginia version) name on them? Catch 'em at it! They'd sleep with "a nigger" if he was covered with a greenback blanket. They've learned something since Sumter was fired on. William Sprague, of Rhode Island, has spent a fortune of S12,000,000, left him by his father, during the past twenty years. As he didn't start a daily paper to fill a long-felt want, it is difficult to understand how he expended so much money in that period. If he employed a plumber three months a year, he ought to still have a couple of thousand left. Xorristoicn Herald. ROCKINGHAM COUNTY (VA.) POLITICS. The ProspccliTC Candidates for the Xcxt liCcUIaturc Bourbon Family Qnarrcl. To the Editor of The Republicax: The local correspondent of the Associ ated Press telegraphed to the world that the nomi nation of Cameron, Lewis, and Blair "fell flat" in this county. The truth is that, as telegrams from this place six days previous to the meeting of the State Kcadjuster Convention will show, the nomi nation of Cameron, Lewis, and Blair had been ac cepted as a foregone conclusion by the Kcadjuster party of this -strons Readjuster county; hence was no surprise, and not calculated to raise much of a hurrah. There was considerable more hilarity by the twelve hundred majority Keadjusters of this county over the absurdity of the Nestor's telegram. The election of Cameron, Lewis, and Blair be ing assured, the Readjusters arc now can vassing for the best men for the senate and house of delegates The nomination in this county is well known to be equivalent to an election. The work before the party is to send to Richmond our very best men. It is gen erally conceded that Dr. J. B. Webb, of Cross Keys, will be nominated for State senator to fill the vacancy of Hon. John Paul, elected to Congress. There are two members of the house of delegates to he chosen from this county. Among those spoken of are J. Madison Weaver, esq., Colonel Barbee, Colonel Dovel, Aldinc S. KTeiffer, J. D. Price, Hon. Reuben N. Harrison, Colonel George E. De Kealc, and Robert Mooney. At this time the lucky two could not be named with certainty. There are no dissensions in our party, but the Bourbons are just now, and for that matter have had for a considerable time, a nice little domestic quarrel. It has been kept, as they supposed, verv quiet, but the first skirmibh gun was fired through the Post, of your city, yesterday. Immediately after the arrival of the mall yesterday it was dis covered that something was wrong in the Bourbon camp. Investigation proved that the Post con- taineu an article rcconimenuuig ucnerai joun .. Roller, of this place, for Governor. Hon. John T. Harris' followers swore it was a Moffett dodge, and Dr. Samuel n. Moflett's relatives swear with eoual earnestness that it was a Harris trick. I would just here simply remark that General Roller is in this valley much more popular than either Harris or Moffett. To get at the true inwardness of this Bourbon quarrel we must go back aJuw years. To be brief, lor the past twenty years the Democracy of this county has been divided known as the Harris fac tion and the Moffett faction. Harris has scored the most victories, but in 1870 Moffett, by running Hon. William Milnes for Congress, defeated Harris. About one year ago Moffett was very anxious to have Harris renominated for Congress, knowing very well that Paul could beat him easier than any other man in this district. But Harris was too smart, and in an assumed spirit of cheerful resig nation of public life had Hon. IL C Allen sacri ficed. This was distasteful to Moffett; he wanted either General Roller or Colonel C. T. O'Ferrall im molated by Paul, as they were his (Moffett's) prin cipal barriers to future greatness, Harris' retirement to private life being accepted in good faith. Now Harris and Moffett both -want to be nominated for Governor, and the fight has become so bitter that it has ended In a Kilkenny cat game. Just which one of the fac tions have sprung General Roller's name is not certain, but lam Inclined to think it a Harris dodge, for two reasons first, to drive Moffett out of the field, and second, if Roller has no show in the convention, to use his strength for Payne against John Goode. You must remember that Harris thinks Goode very nngratefulin allowing his name to be canvassed against him after the well-known national fact that Goode owed his seat in Congress four years ago to the chairman of the Committee on Elections, the Hon. John T. Harris. Harris, in the opinion of the large majority of voters of this valley, has had enough of public pap, and Moffett's bell-punch would beat him be yond question. Of one thing you can restassured neither of them will be nominated, and if either one is, he will not receive a thousand votes in this valley. What then would be,cats-paw Gen eral John E. Roller would get. It is a mighty Interesting fight to us Readjusters here, and thinking the Readjusters throughout Virginia and their friends elsewhere might desire to know how things are moving along in this county, I trouble yon with the facts for publica tion, Youra respectfully, READJUSTEE. Hahrisonbcbg, Va., June 14, 18S1. MACVEAGH'S MEANNESS. Democratic Monopoly of SlenocrnplilC Business Jn the Bnrcnn of Justice. While the Attorney-General is malici ously prosecuting a drag-netinvestigation in an other Department, he is blind to the irregularities practiced witbiu the office under his personal supervision. Reform, like charity, should begin at home, the objection of the Attorney-General to the contrary notwithstanding. There is universal complaint among the United States commissioners and notaries of this city at a procedure that has recently taken place in the Department of Justice. It seems that one H. H. Alexander, a stenographer of this city, has been awarded the exclusive privi lege of reporting the testimony taken on behalf of the Government in suits pending before the Court of Claims. Why this work, should be mo nopolized by one man, to the exclusion of other stenographers, commissioners, and notaries, it is difficult to understand, although it may be in strict conformity with the Attomey-General's idea of civil-service reform. There is no law on the statute-book authorizing the Court of Claims to employ an official stenographer, and this reporting of evidence is left open to all who are qualified to do the work properly. Moreover, Alexander is an ultra-Democrat, the son of Columbus Alexan der, of very bad memory, and inherits a hatred of anything that savors of Republicanism. When iriexander R. Shepherd appeared, like a beacon-light, to sisnalourbeauti ful city out of the mud and mire that had retarded its progress for over half a century, Columbus Alexander led the fossilized obstructionists, who exerted all means within their power to check mate every movement that was made by our city's redeemer in the direction of improvement and sanitary reform. The question might well be put, What meat is this our Bourbons eat that they have grown so great? t A Tlirillinz Rencontre. Under the above head Tuesday's Evening CritichasthQ following spicy item : "Among the more important news telegraphed to the press on Sunday night was the startling statement that the bcautifulribalmy Sabbath afternoon was taken advantage of by many weary journalistsand states men to recuperate their wasted energies in a drive to the beautiful suburbs of Washington.

They are fed by hand into bell-shaped holes, which arc arranged in radical lines in a revolving disc, each line hav ing as many holes as there arc nails wanted along the side of a box. The disc revolves, and delivers the nails into bent tubes, each nail to a separate tube, whence the nail is delivered to a pair of nip pers arranged in a row with others. The nippers then convey the nail under a stationary hammer, when the box is raised upon a sliding platform till the nails arc pushed into it to a certain point, at which the nippers relax their hold and recede, and the box continues to rise till the nails, having their heads pressed constantly by the stationary hammer, are fully driven in. .
