That U a rpeiirnen of the Palla dium's statement of fact. Were any answer needed to the above mis-state-tnent, it would be sufficient to say that if the Testry of ' tie Episcopal Church should place a saloon in one end of that building iu defiance of the wishes of the members, we woui'J aaviw tat latter to ceane attending services there. 1 Telegram. '' ' Last week, we endeavored to eon rinci! our TVeLTaui neighbor of the tot l niunirdity of his patent saloon remover by tuv'tof he remoyal of the Episcop 1 Church, in order to escape from the neighborhood of the saloon's noxiou influence; he having urged the removal ol .the Poat-office for the same reason. He parries the force of our comparison! by mention ing the relative distance between the two point and the saloon miking the diflerence from the Church to the saloon about Hxty-five feet nine inch es and three quarters, against bur par allel, as the actual distance measured by Bro. Surface, and missed ' by us! and complacently concludes that "ar gument is unnecessary in such cases." Let us admit that the relative distance destroys our attempt at showing the foolishness of; his plan; butit is not too late to amend our original motion, ; before our neighbor indefinitely post pones it, by substituting the Toung Mens' Christian Association," for tho Episcopal Church, ' THAT institution being "quite as near" the saloon com plained of as the Post office, anil will make a better comparison,' for' the rooms occupied by both the P. O. and the Y. M. V. A. are rented and, more easily moved than the Church would bel With the Telegram, the palla dium agrees that ''argument is unnec essary in such casea ,' of ridding our city of an unmitigated nuisance by recommending the removal from its vicinity of either one or the other of thefe public helps and ; blessings" It is entirely too absurd for "argument." But to come down tohard pan." The present proprietor of the snloo'u, complained of by the Telegram has a louse for about eight months more. The lease is drawn up '.'for a restaur ant" had the words, "and ; for. no other purpose," been inserted, au ejectment from the premises- could be had and the nuisance (for we hold ALL liquor saloons in the light of un mitigated nuisances,-no matter by whom or how "genteely"' kept) imme diately abated. The owner of ! the premises, therefore, is perlectly pow erhns to FORCE the saloonist to leave unt.l his time expires, and Uncle Sam won't either pW-e the Post-office on wheels and "r wing around the circle,',' ia order to get out of the, neighbor hood of that or any other saloon, or move it tj another part of She -city, until tbe expiration of the ! present lease, or for five yea ra longer il he chooses. This being the case,' would it not be witdoui as well as policy to either wait for the eight months to elapse, or to do as some did 'in the case of McCoy urr him OCT, liquor cards, and all, and m.ike a grand bon-' fire of the bell traps he may have on hand? We submit the query.; , ,, In the meantime, as a compromise' wo respectfully suugest that our neigh bor and ourself, devote our energies to routing out this "sink of iniquity" located between the Post-office and the Young Mens Christian 'Associa tion, and make the place ab "red hot' that the proprietor thereof, will be obliged to move his traps to another locality, or quit the business altogeth er, and not disturb Uncle Sam. or the Y.

A few days ago a Washington corresj'onient wrote and had pr.nted ! a letter favoring a Marvland man for Clerk of the next Horre of Uemn- tat tves. After tlie letter .was pino lishcd the correspondent was waited upon iby some Southern Democratic members and requested 'not to pres-j this person any turthcr. - Heing asked what IherC was against him, they an swered nothing t-peetal, except that he was from "a puke State.'' This ele gant phrase was explained to mean a Southern State, which during the war was mVither hot nor cold, and which though favoring did not join the re bellion. ; Maryland, Kentucky, an Virginia would be included in this t-atetrory. - In further explanation o; the call it was added that the South intended to' control the organization of the next IIoum, and did not intend that any ""puke tate" 6huld be rep resented in the division of the spoil. At tho same time it was stated to be their purpose to make ( Jeneral Hrm ton, of ; Virginia Chairman of the fommittee on Military Affairs, and Whitthorno, an cx-rebel of Tennes see, inamnan or tnc vommitiee on avil Affairs. Theo matters were not mentioned in anv spirit ot menace or bluster; but us a part f tho delib- rate prorramme ol the - Soutnern lemocrats, ' which they had agreed upon and intended to earry out. ITiey fully comport with' the spirit recently evinced by Southern Repre sentatives,; and doubtless indicate the line of action which will le pursued in organizing the next House. With from seventy-five to eighty ex-rebels in the House, the South will hold the balance of pwer to such an extent as to be able to control the policy of the Lemocratio party not only in the or ganization, but in all matters ot legis bttion. Northern lemocrats' are al SI ready alarmed at tho manifestation cf a turbulent aud vindictive spi among their Southern colleagues, and Old members predict a revival in the liouse of -plantation manners and be lore-the-war scenes. No person at ait present disposition of the Democratic j party; can doubt that it will soon ; cri litre before the fiery leadership of these ex-rebels and respond to- the: whip-crack intr process as obediently, as ever. Ind. Journal. - : Kntl.-iad s marriage statistics - were aualyzed to show the probabilities of; marriage for women at 'different ages Supposing tbe sum ot a woman s chances of marriage to be 100, she ex hausts between the sues of 15 and 20 years fourteen and a half chance If she lives unmarried from 2t to. fifty-two more of her chance have vanished into thin air. If she. remains unmarried for five more years, sle will turn 30 with only fifteen and a half chances out of her hundred left. After 35 she has eleven and a hali chances, and at this point the statin tician gave uo his calculation, except that he assures us that even if a wo X-suli has the tenth of a chance ofi jeii nig married out of the hundred with which she . is supposed to have started life, i - : i, i -.
