JOHN BROWN'S SCAT FOIiT). The Gallows Tliat Kiiablctl tho Houl of Ossawatomie to Go 3Iar liing on. From the Wheeling Intolli.ironccr. The historic scaffold upon which John Brown mot his death Decem ber 10, 1850, and Avhiolr was mys teriously spirited away soon after the execution, lias just hoon dis covered at Chnrlestown, Jefferson county, in a somewhat singular place. About three months ago Colonel John M. Coyle bought from a widow the brick residence standing on the corner of Lawrence and Liberty streets, Charlestown, and last week, while making needed repairs, tore j away an old porch in the rear of the j building. Noticing that each board and timber bore a peculiar mark and number lie made an investigation, and to his surprise found that when laced together in proper order the timbers formed a complete scaffold. Subsequent developments have proved beyond a doubt that the scaffold is the original upon which John Brown suffered, and the ven erable relic lias been carefully stored away under lock and key until it can be set in some secure and appro priate place. The discovery created no little excitement among the citizens of the town and county in which the execution took place. - Japan's Model Postal System. A Ye commend the following (which we clip from a KabeJ,apan, letter to the Philadelphia Press,) to the prayerful consideration of the pos tal authorities of Florida. The postal system of Japan is always pointed at as a model in its wav one of the foremost depart ments of the Europeanized govern ment. And, indeed, it must in all fairness be acknowledged that much credit belongs to Japan for swift ness in the despatch of mails, while fettered with a lack of railroads. In the. first place every train carries mail, and in Japan, be it known, the imperial railroads run through pass enger trains every two hours, and on the Yokohama railroad nearly every hour. Thus, while in Amer ica three mails each way daily M ould be esteemed the climax of facilities, the minium between the various cities inJapau is about ten mails each way daily. This applies merely to the railroads, of course. The delivery of mails is also very paompt, and takea place a good many times aday. A person may mail a letter in Yokahama for Tukiyo, one hour's ride to the north, as late as dusk, and yet receive an answer the same night, providing his friend is prompt. AY'hile in A'okahoma I took occasion to mail a letter in a post-box as late as 0 o'clock one eve ning, at a point fully a mile from the postofKce. It was soon collected, delivered to the one to whom it was :addressed over on the bluffs, and the same evening I received a call from 3 he recipient. Ajti effort is made in the case of foreigners to deliver their mail to them promptly. So anxious are the authorities to deliver mail that one of the missionary ladies in Kobe says w lien last summer she went up among the mountains, six miles dis tant, a spocial man was despatched from the office here, really against her wishes, who came all the way on foot, and "was not content until he had hunted her up and delivered her mail. 2?3T U-OO cL V We?

Believing, however, as it does, that the Democratic party, as organized in our State and throughout the South, represents the virtue and intelligence of the people, it will strive to advance its success by all honorable means. It will attempt in addition to point out any abuse of official power, and will strike ever at corruption and dishonesty in the management of public affairs. THE YEAR 1884 is a campaign year; a president is to be chosen to succeed the present re publican incumbent, a great struggle decided on the principles which are to guide our national policy for at least four years. Towards the set tlement of questions so vital the News will give its best efforts to influence public opinion in the direc tion it deems best for the inter ests of a majority of our people. To do this more effectually the editors will, at an early day, begin the publi cation of JHE WEEKLY NEWS, a folio, 48-column paper, equip ped each week with all the current news, or a complete digest of the social political and general happen ings of the day.
