The attention given by the President. ty Congreaa and by the prw" of the en tire country to the Pacific Railroad frauds upon the people i another in the long series of the triumphs of the New York World. It was the expone made by that journal over a vs ar ago, column after column of facts and figures from an indisputable source, which led Con gress to move in the matter of an inves tigation. Nothing but a powerful and fearless newspaper could have brought about this result. It fa reported that some of the logs of that Nova Scotia raft have come ashore on the Bermudas. These logs will prob ably be scattered over the shores of the Atlantic in both heminpheres. Tbe pro jector of this enterprise announces his Intention of trying it again. As the rait, before parting company with the tow. parted one fifteen inch steel hawser and tore the bits away to which the other steel hawser of similar dimensions was fastened it looks as though nothing prac- .i.l ha mm'A that would hold such an immense mass of timber in rough weather. The Forty-first Kentucky is a Federal volunteer regiment which hus never been mustered out of the service. Its members are or believe themselves to be till a part of the organized military forces of the United States, and have held a meeting recently to consider the best means of securing back pay due them, if anv. Thev enlisted "for three years or the war" and probably could not be ordered West to garrison frontier posts, but still, there a a possibility that they might and the chilty suggestion may make them pause and consider before they lay claim to $3,588 of back pay each. - The Monticello Constitution objects to the proposition of the Mayors conven tion that the Governor convene the Legislature in extra session to create a State Board of Health and says: It is verr desirable that the State should be protected from the introduc tion of yellow fever, but we hope Gov, Perry will not accede to the request made by the .Mayors, or any other ap nea's made tor the calling of a special session of the blundering Legislature body that was assembled Inst year, it was certainly the most inetlicient Legm lative body that ever assembled in this) State, and if air a in called together it is impossible to surmise what amount of mischief would be done. The Constitution names one objection which has more weight with cautious people thau any other. It is idle to say that tho Legislature could do nothing but what it was convened to do the people are afraid that anything it might do would go amiss. Its blunders might make matters worse than they are. . better postal riciLrnis. Tbe fact that notwithstanding the low rates of postage the Post Office Depart ment has again become self sustaining and that there promises to be a surplus at the end of the next fiscal year has led to much discussion of the proper policy of the Department. Although there are some who advocate a one cent rate on letters, the more general opinion among those who have studied the matter that there is much else that might be done to make the Post Office a greater benefit thau it is at j resent to the peo ple. The newspapers of the great cities have drawn attention to the poor postal facilities enjoyed by some portions of the country and the disproportionate usefulness of the mails in the large cities and in the country For an instance, there is but one direct daily mail between Palatka and the cities on the West Coast. ' There are many places in Florida where the inhabitants have but one mail on alternate days others do not receive their mails so of ten. All through the Souctl, outside of the larger cities and the country border ing on the railroads, the mails move slowly. The Chicago Timet makes some sug . gestions which are not so impracticable as they seem on first sight. It says: There should be no discrimination favor of large towns in the issuing and payment ol money orders. Every post office should be a money order office. At present the money order offices are con fined to large towns, where there are banks at which drafts can be obtained. They are of no great advaatage to these towns. 1 hey would be of very great ad vantage to people living in the country. remote from banks. Why should the free delivery of postal matter be confined to cities of 10,000 inhabitants or over? Why should it not lie extended to all towns where the streets are named and the houses numberexi? If the olfer of free delivery was made there would be little delay in naming streets and num bering houses. hr should not the free delivery syBtem "be extended to the rural districts? If not practical to deliver the letters at farmhouses or at box near the highway, let them be placed there once, twice or three times a weeK If postal matter cannot be delivered at every farmhouse let it le at least delivered at or near the place where the letter-boxes are placed as persons shall direct, it may be saiil that the free collection and delivery of mail mat ter in the country would not I mi jr. That was said about the great cities before the experiment was tried. But it was soon found that it did pay. The great increase of mail matter more thau paid the additional expense. Such probably would be the case in the country. 1'eo ple who now write a letter once a month would at first write one every week and then every day. Farmers who now take a weekly paper would take a daily. The expense would be much less than per sons who have always lived in cities would estimate 't to be. People in the country work cheap. It is likely that man could tie found in every township who would collect and distribute the mail matter every day for 500 per year, ii un contract was open to competition oners would be received for a smaller sum. No doubt the making of small post offices money order offices would be great convenience to the farming popu lation and to persons) generally in small towns. The suggestion that the freeTle- Uvery system should be extended to tbe rural districts is of little interest in this State where the lobulation is sparse. LEGAL ADTEBTISI50. The Florida Press Association will meet in Jacksonville on the 25th to dis cuss the rates for legal advertising i made by the Legislature last spring, and to take what steps it can toward remedy ing the matter. The rates would be very low for any class of advertising, but when it is known that the composition of these tax sales lists require a amount of figures not usually car ried in suiail offices and which most be bouzht for this use solely it will be seen that the newspapers have good rea son to protest against tbe rate fixed. What that is may be seen from the fol lowing circular to tax collectors issued, under date of January 13, from tbe Comptroller's office: Sir In some instances the tax sale notices, heretofore, included the lull amount of costs for which the land is suhiect when advertised for unpaid taxes. Under the head of "Amount of Taxes and Costs." in the form of adver tisement prescribed by the statute ,;. 47, Revenue Acts), there must be in cluded, in the amount dne on eacn sep arate pan-el of kind, the hve per cent. eorrmiV-tious and twenty-five cents tor certificate of sale, allowed the collector. and the cost of publishing, which is ten cents a line lor lour insertions, i ne word "line means a line of ordinary newspaper column. If the notice is set in double column it will be counted as two lines, or twenty cents ior uouuie column lines for the four insertions. Tbe Death Tnalty la Italy. Tho Italian minister of justice, Big. Zananl.'lii. has just drawn up a new criminal code from which capital punish ment lias ln-en ocoittfd. There is a good deal of speculation in Italy as to whether the kfrisiaturo will finally abolish the punishment of death. Three times w ithin the last twenty years the chamber ol deputies has voted for its abolition, but in each caio tho senate has ret used to confirm tho vote. Since Kin?: Humbert ascended the throne there has not lieen an execution, and it is argued tliat it is absurd and undignified to retain iri tlie code a penalty which never applied. To this it ia naturally objected that King Humbert wul not live forever; that suc ceeding monarch. may be U.-S3 tender hearted, or that nome t-ruu outbreak of crime afruinst tivs person mipnt rentier it uecesscry to make an example. It has more tlir.n once liappened that when cap ital punishment lias bueo abolished it lias been found micessarv to re-8tallisn it. This was tlio rasa not long ago ia several of tho Swiss cantons.

Under tho U nnunds law no church in Utah can hold property above tlie value of $.10,000.

The best h'gal talent pro curable, beaded by Broadhcad, of St. Louis, for two weeks defended the righis of the Mormons, but the judges decided to appoint tho receiver.

Tlie humanity of our times finds it difficult to express itself, and is constant ly devising new methods. One of the latest is a London "scheme for the special visitation and aid of seriously invalided children in thoir homes." Few outside of the ranks of medical men and nurses understand how many children leave hos pitals in a condition requiring far more intelligent and continuous care than they can possibly have from their families. Tliere are severe cases of abscesses, and lingering sores, and weaknesses from limbs that liave been broken, besides many who sutler from other causes Jess severe, but surhcient to cut them oil from the pursuits and pleasures of child hood. The object of the association is to sup plement hospital work sending nurses to the houses of the sick poor. But be yond that, or more specifically, it is to secure a list of wealthy and benevolent families tliat can be relied upon to pay for, or furnish what is needed for, one or more of the little invalids. It is tlie work of the association to bring the two par ties togetlier and get tlie wealthy inter ested in vperial wards. Tliere is a cen tral olhee and a medical secretary, to whom any one can send tlie address of a sick chilil needing help. Then the visitor secures for such child his friend, wlio is to consider it. for the time tieing. as his own child. This is one of the best con sidered forms of benevolence that has been devised. It would liear transplant ing into every city and almost every vil lage of not only England, but America. The trouble with most ciiarity is its lack of personality and its transient character.
