TILE WEEKLY HERALD.
THURSDAY. JAN. 13, 1370.
A recekt etorm In the North,
extending from the Kennebec in
Blaine to the Weetern lakes, has
done great damage.
R. W. McNas i, of Wheeling,
West Virginia, who was shot by
Miss Bethem for breach of a mar
riage promise, has since died.
Miss Bethem has been arrested
and confined ia jail.
Thi Mormons are reported in
great trouble. Schisms are break
ing forth. The Infallibility of the
Grand Mogul, Brigham Young,
is doubted seriously doubted.
There Is a spiritualistic faction in
church, which is guided by the
ghostly counsels or Joe Smith,
Solomon, and others. This fac
tion depreciates the religious
value of Brigham.
Oa New Year's Day the liberal
proprietor of the Rural New
Yorker, the Hou. Dr.'T. Moore,
presented twenty of hit employees,
including mail and business clerks,
pressmen, printers, artist, and edi
tors, with paid up life insurance
policies Id the Farmers' and Me
chanics' Life Insurance Company,
In amounts of $500, $1,000, and $2,
000 respectively, aggregating
eighteen thousand dollars Insur
ance, at a cost to the employer of
nearly $5,000. All others in his
service received handsome compli
ments in cash.
It will be seen by the editorial
correspondence published to-day,
that the prospects for the remov
al of the State capital to Vicka
burg are good. The letter says
the old capital building seems
ready to fall in and ' bury the as
sembled sages beneath Its ruins.
If that were the only reason for a
removal tee should say, for God's
sake let her tumble.
The Governor of New York, in
his aunual message, delivered to
the Legislature of that State, a few
days since, recommends, among
among other things, the abolition
of the cour,iiracy statute in regard
to labor, and tin repeal of the ex
else law ; protests agaiust the action
of Congress towatds the Southern
States; asks for a revision of the
appreutlce and criminal laws, and
for a law to forbid injunction and
receivers in cases agaiust moneyed
corporations on ex parte proceed
ings. The debt of the State is
$55,000,000.
A proclamation said to have
been concocted and issued by the
Spanish authorities, has been cir
culated affirming the utter over
throw of the Cuban 'patriots and
the cessation of hostilities, etc.
The Cuban Junta in this coun
try have issued a counter procla
matlon explaining the fraud, and
asserting that the insurgents are
rapidly gaining ground and that
Spain's hold upon Cuba is rapidly
weakening.
Thi organization of the Penn
sylvania House of Delegates was
attended with some difficulty,
eleven Democrats and as many Re
publicans holding over. The 8peak
er being Republican, the Demo
crats will Jve a majority of one at
first on the floor, and their action
in the Senate, on account of con
tested seals, may produce a lock in
that body for some time.

Tuesday night Mr. John Hamlin
met bis death at the hands of Mr.
Frank W. Perkins. Mr. Hamlin
was employed as a policeman, we
believe and Mr. Perkins is engag

oil factory ou Levee street. The
parties were iu a room in Perkins'
house, on Levee street, and Perkins

that he shot Hamlin, but says it
was an accident and that he did

loaded. It seems he has made con
tradictory statements of the mat

not know the gun was loaded, at
another that he did know it. At

Of all the old tumble down, j by the subjoined act of Congress,
rickety, dusty, dirty, tattered woe j passed oa the 25ta of July, 1300,
begone structures, which does : the election cannot take place un
not even have the appearance of, til after next Tuesday week. This
past respectability, the State Cap
itol is possibly the most lamenta
ble spectacle. It is seamed and
cracked from base to dome, and,C. McKee, member of Congress
has the appearance as if it would -
tumble in at any moment. Tup j
greatest proof of the courage of the
members of the present Legisla-
tnre, is, that they absolutely sit in ,
a structure which, from appear
ances, is liable at any moment to
come tumbling, with all its mass
of rapidly separating brick and
mortar about their ears. It is a
serious question with us whether
it is genuine courage, or love of
office which supports these people
in such trying situations. It is
probably a combination of both.
We incline to the opinion that a
life insurance agent, who will ac
cept State warrants in payment at
par in life policies could do a ,
thriving business here Just now.
No sane man can possibly hope
to enjoy a long lease of life and
remain beneath the roof of such
an old rattle trap. It is clear
that the building a new Capitol
must be among the first acts of
the Legislature. And since Jack
son is totally unfitted as the seat
of State Government, we strongly
incline to the opinion, as we
glean it from street talk, that
Vicksburg will be the point se
lected. It is everywhere recog
nized as the commercial centre of
the State. It is known to be the
only really live city on the Mis
sissippi, outstripping in growth
and prosperity all her competi
tors. Besides, by her river and
railroad facilities she is more ac
cessible than any other point in
the State, and then ter hotel fa
cilities are so much, and so vastly
superior 'to any place at which
this body could assemble. It is
more than seriously contemplated!

ture of Louisiana acted very wise-

and such will soon be the action
of the Mississippi Legisla
ture in going to Vicksburg from
Jackson. Under the old Consti
tution we do not think thst it
could be done ; but under the new
Constitution we do not think
there is sny clause preventing it,
and such too seems to be the im
pression of the members of the
Legislature. The colored mem
bers are strongly in favor of going
to Vicksburg. They say, very
truly, that there is no provision
for them hero whatever, but that
there is ample provision in Vicks
burg. The feeling favoring the
change is quite strong.
Jacisok, Miss., Jan. 11, 70.
ELECTION OF SJtUTEB STATES
SENATOR.
Jaciso, Mm., Jan. 11,1870.
The subject which now seems
to rack the minds of the Legisla
ture of this State is the election
of United States Senators. Every
man in Jackson, it is said, is an
aspirant for the position, and
such canvassing, button-holing,
and electioneering were never be
fore witnessed. The general im
pression seems to be that there is
a tacit understanding among the
legislators that one Southern and
one Northern man shall be elected.
At the first blush it would appear
that of the Northern class General
Ameshu decidedly tho advan
tage; but General Eggleston is
most Industriously contesting
every point with him, and Is
working like badger. Should
the election occur at once, tliere is I
will give the opponents of Gen.
Ames a splendid opportunity to
work against him. General Geo.
from this the Fourth District, is
puiiing very quietly a vast number
of wires; and If the election
should not occar until the period
named, it will be discovered that
he is a very formidable opponent
of both Ames and Eggleston.
By some It is claimed, however,
that the act of Congress referred
to, which regulates the general
election of United States Senators,
does not apply to unreconstructed
States ; and u an illustration of
the truth of their position, they
cite the action of Virginia, the
Legislature of which State was
in session scarcely a week, and
it elected
Senators whose seats
been contested upon
have not
that ground. Of the Southern class
uptrants for this position, Col.
Flourney appears to be the most
prominent. A few persons speak
u if a very respectable vote will
be cut for Dr. W. M. Compton,
while a very large and respecta
ble number intimate that Judge
I. S. Morris, of Vicksburg, will
not be left far in the background.
Taking all in all however, it is a
very amusing and interesting stndy
to the looker oa. But here we
present the act of Congress men
tioned :
Be it enacted by the Senate and
House of Representatives of
the United States of America
in Congress assetnbed, That the
Legislature of each State which
shall be chosen next preceding the
expiration of the time for which
any senator wu elected to repre
sent said State in Congress, shall
on the second Tuesday after the
meetiug and organization thereof,

and take at least one vote until a

Sec. 2. And be it further en
acted, That whenever, on the
meeting of the Legislature of any
State, a vacancy shall exist in the
representation or such State in
the Senate of the United States,
said Legislature shall proceed, on
the second Tuesday after the com
mencement and organization of
its session, to elect a person to
fill such vacancy, in the manner
hereinbefore provided for the
election of a Senator for a full
term ; and if a vacancy shall hap
pen during the session of the
Legislature, then on the oecond
Tuesday after the Legislature
shall have been organized and
shall have such notice of such va
cancy. Sec. 3. And be it further en

THE LATENT SE.VSATI0.
The New York Herald has an
immensely sensational story made
upon the confession of an ex
Confederate, to the effect that ex
President Johnson, Gov. Hoff
man, Senator Morgan and Gen.
Frank Blair had conspired to
force repudiation upon the coun
try by flooding it with counterfeit
greenbacks and spurious coin.
The said relator is in enstody in
New York, held for investigation.
fhe following is the substance of
King's (fhe informer) story i
The first meeting of the con
spirators wu held in Tammany
Hall. Soon after their arrival here,
according to the statements given
by King and his friend Phelps
attended a Tammany meeting, af
ter which those previously Initia
ted into the secret remained be
hind, and subsequently some two
hundred of the conspirators reas
sembled in another part of the
Tammany building. Among those
present on the occuion King
enumerates Governor Hoffman,
ex Governor Morgan, General
Frank Blair the - latter wu at
this meeting made presiding offl
cer. Kins goes on to state that
it was decided at this meeting to
commence manufacturing conn
terfeit greenbacks on a large scale
in order to flood the country with
them, to purchase up all the gold
with them and by tills means te
withdraw all the specie lrom the
banks and from the private hold
era, and to so depreciate the cur
rency and paralyze all monetary
transactions and financial busi
ness as must have evoked a pop
ular rising of the people against
the government and thus compel
a repudiation of the national in
debtedness.
King further states that Pi tat-
dent Johnson was perfectly aware
of the whole thing that he wu
heart and soul in tbe conspiracy,
and that his appointment of Air.
Cooper u Assistant Secretary of
the Treasury was in furtherance
of the general object.

Although the average wu mncb

still nearer by the strange no'.;,
they distinctly heard the clank of
chains, Irons, and padlocks. This
wu too much for youthful temerity
to eudurev They were bravo beys,
but demoniac yells from tho tree

and reported to the neighborhood
tbe strange and wonderful sounds
which had greeted their ears. '

alarm of the boys, bnt wu still oa
the lookout for strange sights. On
last Saturday his curiosity wu
somewhat relieved by seeing a
monster bird, something like the
condor of Sinbad the sailor, altgti
on bis barn. It gave a few of toe
screams which bad so disturbed
the boys, snd Mr.. Pepples wu
satisfied he had found the ghost.
He took down bis rifle, aud with

bullet, drew a bead oa the bird.
and it fell. On approaching it he
found that only one wing had been
broken, which be amputated.
Now comes the secret of the chaise.
