If Figures Don't Ma this Soheine Might , lie, Practicable. WabrWoto, Veer if. Tho subject o( postal telegraphy has, provoked considerable private discussion among members of Congress during thtf past week. Tlio most popular bill yot Introduced looking to the establishment of a postal telegraph system appears to be that of .Representatives Anderson, of Kansas, referred to in tlioso previous' to its introduction in the House. The act approved July 24, lbiK), entltlod "An act to aid in the construction of telegraph linos and to secure to the Government the Use of the Karrie for patrol, military and other pttrgbsojt, anymgjother things, that all' telegraphic communications betwoon ho sqvordl departments' of the Government of the United States and.thoii ofllcors and agents, shall in their transmission over the lines of any said companies have prjijijUy over all other business, and shall p4 wvt at'rat3i to be annually fixed by the Postmaster General "Thisclauso," said Mr. Anderson, "is the only keynote'to any bllL I think that the great difficulty in obtaining legislation on this subject, heretofore, has been on account of the largo appropriation of money required to begin the work of construction. My bill obviates any- necessity for the ap proprhUion of a single dollar, and provides that tlio lines shall bo built with monoy derived from the sale of $0,000,000 of tlireo per cent bonds. JSvery pne who has oiam inod this'subjoct knows that within a period of twenty years tho profits of a system of postal telegraphy will build lines, not only to every city, but to every place in the United.Btates.whora there is a fourth iltus postoulce, and the bonds which it is proposed to issuo are td be redeemable at thu option of tho Government in ten or thirty years. This plan, in my Judgment, will secure tho establishment for the Government of a completo telegraph servicojjfithout jho expenditure of a dollar outside of tho amount realized upon tho sole oT the $0,000,000 bonds." Mr. Antler-son's bill authorizes tho Postmaster Gonoinl to make connection with the lines belong ing to any "railroad or telegraph coin pany " which has received a grant of public lands, bonds or credit from the United States, and domand that all " postal telegraph messages " shall be transmitted. oei the wires of these connecting lines at Gov eminent rotes and in the manner preset by the law-of 1800 for the transmission of Government business.

MINER! & BRO. t JESTAHJ.lHUEIi IN BOOTS, SHOES; LeatoaiiiH MAYSVILLE, KY. Tlireo Particular Points. Point the First. Brown's Iron Bitters is not an intoxicating compound. It is a tonic medicine, not a drink. It is a skillfully compounded preparation made to restore strength and health ; not a beverage to be sold in bar-rooms and taverns. Point the Second. Brown's Iron Bitters is free from everything injurious. The most delicate ladies and the most enfeebled infants may use it with perfect safety and with great advanta e. VVhile it is powerful in its remedial agency, it is gentle in its operation, restoring wasted strength and imparting robust health in the most efficient manner. Point the Third. Brown's Iron Bitters is made by the Brown Chemical Company of Baltimore, a long established hoube, whose reputation is well known to the business world and the general community. There is no risk in buying such a medicine. 6 ZSCXTEW & ALLE2T, : Wholesale and retail dealers In : - STOVES In order to supply the Increasing demands of our trade we are continually adding to our supply of Stoves and Tinware.
