Towaida, P., Wednesday, Nov, 16,1881. UITOM. ■. W. ALVORD. NOBLE N.ALVOBD JBrrtfew" tulyM ten per' mmmth. fry iit State Names. Hamilton B. Staples read a paper at the annual meeting of the American An tiquarian Society in Worcester on the 21st ult., in which he discussed the ori gin of the names of several States. His conclusions were as follows: New Hamp shire, England. Massachusetts Is deriv ed from an Indian name, first given to the bay, signifying "near the great hiils." Rhode Island has an obscure origin, the '♦lsland of Rhodes," the "Island of Roads," and a Dutch origin, "Red Is land," were mentioned, the first seeming to 'have the best historical support. Connecticut is an Indian name, signify ing "land on a long tidal river." New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Dela ware and Maryland were passed over. Virginia, the Carolinas, and Georgia have a royal origin. Maine was named from the fact that it was supposed to contain the "niayue portion" of New England. Vermont has no especial question, except that it is claimed to have first been an alias —New Connecticut, alias Vermont. Kentucky popularly siguifies either a "dark and bloody ground" or "a bloody river," or "the long river." Tennessee comes from its river, the name being de rived from the name of an Indian village on the river— 4 Tanasee." Ohio is nam ed after an Indian name, signifying "something great." with an accent of ad miration. Indiana comes from the name of an early land company. Illinois from the Indian — the name of a tribe. Michi gan i cl lined to mean "lake country ;'g it. probably came from the name of the lake, ♦♦Great Lake," which bore this nam be fore ihe land adjacent was named. Lou isiana is from the French Arkansas and Missouri are Indian, the former being doubtful; the latter is claimed to mean in its original "muddy water," which de scribes the river. lowa is also Indian, with doubtful meaning. Texas is popu larly supposed to be Indian, but may be Spanish. Florida, Spanish, "a flowery land." Oregon has a conjectural oiig! It is probably Indian, but a Spanish ori gin is claimed. California comes from a Spanish romance of 1510, Nevada takes its name from the mountaius, who get theirs from a resemblance to the Ne vadas of South America. Minnesota is Indian, "sky-tiuted water." Nebraska is variously reudered "shallow water" and "flat country." Kansas front an In dian root, lvaw, corrupted by the trench. Mississippi is "great water," or "whole river." Alabama is Indian, the name of a fortress and a tribe, signifying, as is claimed, "here we rest." — N- I Times. Colonel Quay's Stratagem Colonel Quay's declaration in yester day's Press in favor of Grow and Caven for Governor and Lieutenant-Governor next year is susceptible of various inter pretations. It may be the grim humor of a dry joker. It may be a decoy to draw the fire of the Republicans, who are already gunniug for the next campaign. It may be au ingenious ruse to divide and distract the other side. Or it may be a frank concession to the independent and reform sentiment, which has shown that it must be regarded aud respected. But what ever the true explanation, it is valuable as a recognition of the eur reut and force of public opinion. Colon el Quay is an astute and consummate pol itician, who has carried his waving plume through many campaigns, and who knows when it is time to fight and when it is time to parley and make terras. He is full of pluck and is not a man to be j stampeded; but he has penetration enough to see the irresistable drift of •f popular sentiment, and if he under takes to stem its pressure, it will be not from lack of intelligence, but from wilful , opposition. He held the reins of the last convention with a firm and resolute hand; but in the light of the elections he can see that he drove on the very edge of the precipice, and it may well be that he does not care to repeat the dangerous ex periment. At any rate the suggestion of Grow and Cayen from such a source is some thing new in Pennsylvania politics. Grow and Caven may, or may not, be a ticket which would meet the spirit of the hour and prove acceptable to the whole Republican party; it is rather early to pass upon that question; but when Colon el Quay unfurls a banner bearing their names, whether altogether serious or not it is an acknowledgment ef the power of a popular sentiment which cannot safely be disregarded. Ring up the curtain for the new drama of Quay and Reform! Press. A dispatch from Berlin states that in consequence of the desire of the Emperor Bismark will remain in office. It is reported in Washington 'hat the position of Assistant Secretary of the Treasury' will be tendered to Hon. Geo C. Gorliam. The President has accepted Attorney General MacVengh's resignation. Solic itor General Phi lips, for the present will act as Attorney General.
