Mr. D.wiil Mouart is now under in

John Cessna, who was defeated for
judge in tho Somerset district at the re

were received for Baer, without asking
all the questions prescribed by law. How
very liko Cessna. If such a petty claim
as that is allowed, it will be strange in
deed. The Postmaster General has issued an
order to take effect after January 1st,
revoking section 171 of tho Postal Reg
ulations, which provides for tho redemp
tion of postal cards that may bo spoiled
in tho hands of private parties by print

postmasters must not redeem postal cards

The Secretary of tho Treasury in his
annual report to Congress suggests that
tho coinago ot silver be suspended. One
hundred millions of silver dollars have
been coined and sixty six millions of
this amount remain in the vaults of tho
treasury just two thirds of tho total
coinage. The Secretary is of opinion
that tho United States can pay their ob
ligations in gold. The silver dollars aro
nuisances and their abolition would
meet with popular approval.
There aro no less than sixteen con
tested seats in Congress, and all but three
of tho contestants are Republicans. In
almost every case tho Democratic major
ity in each district runs into tho thous
ands. Evidently tho Republicans nro
afraid of their slender majority in the
House, and intend if possiblo to increase
it by ousting legally elected members. In
any event a largo bill of expense will
be laid upon tho people.
Judgo Noah Davis, of New York, in

amount to taut insanity which in law disarms
the net of criminality. 'Under such notions of

public and private, would he altogether lose

his wrongs, real or iuisginary, shall work
himself up to an Irresistible Impulse to

Judge, Jury und executioner in ids own case
for the redress of his own Injuries or the
imaginary wrongs of his friends, his party

law; so, whenever such Ideas of insanity arc
applied to a given case at the law (as too of
ten they have been), crime escapes punish,
incut, not through tho legal insanity of the,
accused but through the emotional Insanity of
courts and juries.
TIIK PRESIDENT'S 3IESSAUK.
President Arthur's message to Con
gress was published on AVednesday. It
is a very long but not remarkable doc
ument, touching lightly upon thoso topics
most deserving of vigorous comment.
The message opens with nn allusion to
the death of Garfield, couched in grace
ful terms, and then treats at some length
of our foreign relations. Thero is noth
inir of much moment in this except
mention of tho apprehension felt at tho
continued war between vJluli, l'eru and
Bolivia. Tho abolition ol all internal
revenuo taxed is recommended, except
upon tobacco, distilled spirits and fer
mented liquors. The President thinks
it doubtful whether tho taxes on liquor
and tobacco should bo reduced just nt
present, but believes they may bo soon.
The increase of onlisted men in tho army
to IJO.OOOis recommended. This does not
look like retrenchment. Tho popular
demand is for tho sweeping nway ot all
internal revenuo taxation and a reductiou
of public expenses wherever practicable
With a surplus in tho treasury of 0110
hundred and thirty millions, it is idle to
nsseit that a decrease of expenditures is
not possible. Tho passago of acts to
break' up tho tribal relations of Indians
and allot Jiiiiu 111 ucverany, is recom
mended. Tho jnetsngo speaks sharply
against nolvtramv and suuKests that
certificates of marriage in the territories
bo filed in tho supremo court ot the ter
ritory. Thero 1110 some very pretty sen
timents expressed regarding civil Bervice
reform but as thero is no intention ou tho
part of either tho administration or tho
Rcpublbaii majority in Congress to pay
any heed to tho suggestions, it is hardly
worth while to specify them. Tho mes
sago would occupy about eight columns
of the Coi.uuiimn, but the main points
huvo been mentioned. It is n statu pa
per that apart from its graininutieal ac
curacy nod will worded sentences will
not rank high except that it bears ovl
denco of being tho personal woik of tho
President, ui)d expresses his own views.

will cost tho government if l4iU,000.
Mint Muliotifl Intends Doing In Virginia.
In nn interview witli tho Nuu Votk
Times, Mahnno very freely express the
programme of tho readjustee. After
elcctinir lliddlcberuer to tho United
States Senate, the next thing they will
do will bo to pass tho liiddlcberger debt
bill. This bill which scales tho debt of
Virginia from $31,000,000 to $20,000,.
000 ho says isns good as passed already,
ns the people unmistakably expressed
themselves 111 favor of readjustment on
this basis in the last campaign. Mnhono
says the friends of tho bill will not dis
cuss it, but after tho "Bourbons" hnvo
talked against it as much as they please,
tho Legislature will fix a day for taking
it up and passing it. When tho debt bill
is passed tho next thing, according to
Mai tone, is the repeal of the capitation
tax, so that there will bo no longer n tax
qualification for voting in Virginia. Tho
judges of the supieino court who nro to
decido upon tho readjustment law "will
bo appointed early, and when all this is
done, Mnhono sayp, "tho Bourbon party
in Virginia won't have a leg to stand
on." This is a very interesting pro
grammo'nud is especially edifying to tho
"honest money 'Republicans' of tho
North who supported Mnhono as the ml
vocato of "a grand and beneficent politi
THE ASSASSIN'S TlilAb.
Thocross-exnminstion of Guiteau by
Judgo Porter continued through Thurs
day and Friday. Tho jirisoner was by
times irascible and sulky and made a
most unfavorable impression. His in
tenso egotism was displayed to a great
er extent than ever before, but beyond
tho excessive desire for publicity thero
was nothing to show his insanity. At
one time ho became furiously excited
aud denounced Secretary ISlaine. Ho
was allowed all poss'ble freedom, and
wound up by slating witli a shout, that
ho believed lSlaino was morally respon
sible for Garfield's death.
On Saturday, Emory A. Storrs, tho fa
mous Chicago lawyer, was on the stand
for tho defense. He testified that he
J'nevcr saw anything in Mr. Guiteau to
indicate that he could not distinguish
between right and wrong," and that he
"uever Baw anything to indicato that ho
would not be responsible for crime."
This so exasperated Guiteau's sister that
sho said "He has perjured himself; that
is all there is about it." Senator Davis
was next placed upon tho stand. Ho
was examined as to tho disagreement be
tween President Garfield and Senator
Conkling. lie thought that the Repub
lican party could only be destroyed by
disrupting the Democratic party. Judg
ing from the Senator's recent acts, we
should imagine that ho had tried his
level best to smash both parties.
On Monday, medical experts were ex
amined. Their testimony rather leaned
towards the prisoner's insanity. Guiteau
at one criticism of his political speech,
said that he had "rather be hanged as
a man, than acquitted as a fool." Tho
public earnestly hope that he may
not be acquitted.
THE MEETING OF C0XGHESS.
On Saturday last the Republican rep
resentatives in Congress, held a caucus
for tho nomination of speaker, and other
officers of tho House. For Speaker the
candidates were, Frank Iliscock, of New
York; James W. Keifer, of Ohio; John
A. Kasson, of Iowa; Mark II. Duntiell,
of Minnesota; Godlovc S. Orth, of In
dina; J. C Burrows of Michigan, and
Thomas B. Reed of Maine. There was
a sharp struggle, and it was not until the
sixteenth ballot that Mr. Kiefer had
enough votes to effect his nomination.
He is of tho Stalwart faction. Edward
McPhcrson was chosen Clerk, George
W. Hooker, Sergcant-at-arms, Walter
P. Brownlow, doorkeeper, Henry Slier
wood, postmaster and Rev. F.D. Power,
chaplain. Tho Democratic members
nominated tho following oflicers: For
Speaker, Samuel J. Randall, of Penn
sylvania; for Clerk, Georgo M. Adams,
of Kentucky; for Sergeant-at arms, John
G. Thompson, of Ohio; for doorkeper,
Charles W. Field, of Georgia; for post
master, A. W. C. Noulin, of Virginia;
fsr chaplain, W.P. Harrison, of tho Dis
trict. Tho Greenbackers nominated a full
set of officers.
At the meeting of tho Rouse on Mon
day, tho Republican caucus nominees
were elected without delay. Three of
tho Pennsylvania members voted against
MoPherson at first, but wero subsequent
ly whipped into tho traces. On calling
tho roll 290 members answered to their
names. Eight Democrats were absent,
but all tho Republicans wero in their
seats. The usual committee was ap
pointed to wait upon tho President and
inform him that tho Ilousa was ready to
Tho Senate was called to order by Sen
ntor Davis, president pro torn. The cre

lulls wero introduced.
No business of importnucu was trans
acted in either house on Tuesday. Senator
Cameron however found time to intro
duce a resolution in favor of the aboli
tion of internal rovenue taxes.

A Mii'higcu journal relates the follow
ing: Amos Jmiii's, Ksq,, proprietor of

suffered so badly with Rheluiintlsm that'
ho was unnblo to raise his arm for threu
months. Fivo bottles of St. Jacobs Oil

Kmc ot a Unlit-nail,
Sonic months ago the North and West
Uranch railroad, or what there was of it, was
put upnt BherilT's sale In llloomshurg, and
was knocked down to Mr, Charles l'arrlsh
aud others. With his accustomed push Mr.
l'arrlsh nt once entered actively upon the
construction of thu road. It had lain for
years waiting for some party to take hold of
It. KlTorts had been mndc time and again to
get the Pennsylvania Kallrond Company In
terested in the building of It, but (hey held
aloof, thinking that there was no use paying
n largo sum of money to get It In their pos
session when eventually it would drop In
their laps like n ripe plum, Hut after the
llloomshurg sale and tho subsequent Work
done in grading and constructing the new
line, the Pennsylvania management saw that
the time for delay had pased. Their tlrst
step was to place obstacles In the way of
the building of the road around tho narrows
nt Nantlcokc. The courts were appealed to
and tho Pennsylvania Co. wero compelled
to allow a passage over their lands. Soon
after this, negotiations were opened for its
purchase, and in a short tlmu the bargain
was made and a controlling interest in the
line was transferred to the Pennsylvania com
pany. Mr. Charles l'arrlsh retains a large
share In the road, and will continue to take
an active part in its direction and manage
ment. A largo forco of men will be kept at
work and by the first of next August the road
will tie opened toWllkes-llarro aud icady for
travel. It has been rumored on tho streets
that nn agent of tho Pennsylvania company
had purchased the Jennings property on tho
corner of Canal and Murket streets fur a de
pot, freight houses and so forth, hut it Is not
correct. That company has not purchased
any property In this city. Wlllei-Jlarre Union-Leader.
