The Czar danced in a frock coat

was only the swallow tails that could
dance, but the Russian has broken in
on that and now the frock coats will
get their rights and swallow tails must

Congress having adjourned without
passing the civil rights bill, bv which
the negro was to be mixed up with
the whites in schools, churches and
everywhere, the colored negro states
man Fred Dougles has become furious,
aud u few- Jays ago came out in an
angry article against the Republicans,
especially those from the South, who
voted against the passage of the Civ
il Rights bill. In the course of this
article be says:
"By the treachery of Republican
members of Coogresa, elected in large
part by colored votes, the negro is
continued an outlaw. Fortunately
the negro has the ballot. He owes it
to himself to use that ballot in punish
ing the treachery of the men whose
treason to professed principles leaves
him a victim to negro hate. Every
ballot that shall be cast by colored
men for the so-called Republicans who
on Saturday night last voted against
the Civil Rights bill will be regarded as
ao many indorsements of their treason.
Our people are not the cowards to kiss
the hand that smites them. They
must not be led into the support of
pretended friends by sophistry nor by
intimidation. Defeat every pretend
ed Republican who voted against the
Civil Rights bill."
Congress passed an act, shortly be
fore the adjournment, by which week
]y papers are to circulate free of post*
age in the counties where published ;
daily papers and papers sent outside
the county, must have |ostage pre.
paid at 2 cents per pouu I, after Jan*
uary Ist, 1875.

The Parly * Wash.
The cloving scent* of emigre** were
mailc rather lively, ly the tadical
leaders, Butler ami others lolling mi
each other of had things done hv radi
eal office holders. The Son says the
ilehate in the House last Friday night
was apparently designed for no pur
pose but to enable the Kepublieaa
party to wash a val aecuniulalioii of
dirty linen in public, and it was nil
verv iveil to gel rid ol the tilth : but
the wash was too big lor a single ee
easioil. It was indeed so large and so
utterly disgusting that the public,
which usually cticouragea sanitary
measures of this sort, was obliged to
turu away its nose ami lortity it' stom
ach. The geutlctueu wln> paitieipat
ed iu the exhibition w ill be largely
disappointed, for the iaol is, nobody
cares whose "coat tails are the foul
est, when ali are too loul to show ; and
the general desire is to have the nasty
sluice shut up aud the soiled ami (al
tered rags of the Republican household
taken in for good.
The tuba were originally brought
out at the request of Gen. Butler. who
it is understood, desired to change
clothes and live clcanlv. But when
everything was made ready Butlvt
vowed, to the amazement of llousc
aud gallery, that he wasn't dirty ; aud
forthwith tbiew his coat tails up as if
o invite inspection. The exposure
was tempting, we admit, ami we can
hardly censure the ambitious small
fry who improved it t< kick him
around the ring,and wreak uustinted
vengeuce upon the Administration's
favorite bully. AH baud, according
ly fell to, pretending to be quite un
conscious that they had only to peel
Butler iu order to tiud Grant; and
Butler, in order to bear the pun >h
tueiit alone, passed it vigorously on t>
i'hellps, Dodge A Co., who are little
more euiiueut in the tin trade than iu
the Young Mcu's Christian Associa
tion and the Jay Cooke Deacon Buck
ingham kind of Republican |oliiu*s.
Aud so it went around. Kichardsuu
was stripped naked, and his old
clothes spreaJ cut with revolting at
tent ion to details, but nobody remark
fit, "This is the savory until of an un
happy imbecile whom our Prrsideut
made Secretary of the Treasury, aod
afterward, with the advice and consent
of our Seuate, a Judge of the Court of
claims." carj>et-bag, Ban
field's trunk, and Sauborn's capacious
chest were impartially emptied to pub
lic view, and while every man iu the
House knew perfectly well that Pres
ident Grant was the genuine ultimate
proprietor of this whole mass of infect
ed stuff, aud that the condemned gar
ments had only been fitted to bis sub
ordinates byway of livery, there was
none bold enough to tell the truth,
aud fix the responsibility where it re
ally belonged.
When Gen. Butler finally eularged
upon the prevalence of bribery aud
corruption throughout the service, and
showed conclusively that one hundred
millions of revenue was annualtv fctol-
en, independent of either Richardson
or Sauborn, he affixed a lasting stig
ma upon the party which all the soap
suds in the universe will not wash
The bill passed by the Legislature

in this Commonwealth, shall pay or

things, or knowingly allow it to be
done by others for him, either for the
nomination, election or appointment,
except necessary expenses as follows,
to wit:
First—For printing and traveling
Second —For dissemination of in
formation to the public.
Third —For political meetings, de
monatration and conventions.
The foregoing expenses may be in
curred either in person or through
other individuals, or committees of
organizations duly instituted for the

The actum of the senate patent
committee in reportingftgainrt the ex
tension of Wilson for a motion sewing
machine patent is very significant,
and of great interest to the whole
country. It is now certain that no
cxtention will be granted for the
Bachelor feed motion patent when this
patent is out, and no restrictions will
exist on the manufacture of sewing
machines, and the most expensive
machines will then be greatly reduced
in price. Sewing machine companies
exerted all their influence, but were
opposed by petitions signed by three
millions of people against u furthet
extension of the patent.
A Koutlj Carolina correspondent of
i the New York Times has compiler! a
; list of the officials of that Htute indic
i ted or couvicted of crime during the
i past few months. The total is thirty
j two, and includes the Governor,three
county treasurers, two county sheriffs,
twenty-four county commissioners, one
school commissioner, and ope police
justice. These were State officers j,
but one Congressman. R. H Cain,
has also been arraigned in the courts
for larceny. And there is no hope
whatever for South Carolina unless
Congress assumes the right to again
reconstruct its government.

There is n negro Samson named
Nelson de Lisle, m New (ileans. He
is a horse dealer by profession, and
the trick of bis trade is to take pos
session of horses in nt> unauthorized
manner. JJe wu> denominated a
horse-thief before u Court ill New
Orleans i.i and sent to the itate
I'rison, where he stayed oniv si* days
of the five years aw arded Lint, He
broke jail by snapping iron bars us if
they bad beeu stiiks, and carrying the
outer gate, and tied ami hid. The pi*
lice have been on the lookout for him,
ttu.i afraid they would find him. l'be
other day two or three of them got
hold of liiiii j but lie broke loose ami
laid them out on (ho pavement with
one blow of his mighty arm. le
Lisle then ran, and the cry of "stop
thief* was raised, and a gathering
crowd surged in pursuit. A police*
man fired three shots at him without
any apparent effect, and he was at
length brought to a halt by running,
as it were, in a crowd of about a thou
sand men that bad collected alxut
him, both before and behind, in his
flight. The friction of such a ma*s
was too much, aud lie saw the living
wail close around him. It took
twelve muscular white Americans to
take him to the station-house, as be
kept up n skirmishing fight ail the
way. He was put in the stocks, and
it was found that a pistol ball bad
passed through in* thigh, and a club
had indented bis forehead over bis
eye. His vitals, which were covered
with a heavy coating of upper leather,
were unharmed. He is not of exag
gerated size, being a litter over medi
uiu size, but his mold is Herculean
and bis endurance is equal to that i f
a steam engine of twenty horse power.
L. W. Herrington, publisher of the
Lycoming Ranger, was arrested yes
terday and taken before the I'nited
States Commissioner, Hepburn Me
Clure. The charge against him was,
that he violated the postal laws of the
I'nited States by printing and publish
ing an obscene and lewd paper, and
that he did on the 20th dav of June,
1?74, and at divers times before that
deposit in the post-office at Williams
port said Ranger, for mailing and de
livering in the I'nited States mail,
knowing the same to bo an obscene
and lascivious publication, rontrarv
to the acts of Congress in such rase
made and provided.
The prisoner made a request to
have the ease continued until Satur
day, in order that he might have time
to prepare himself. To this Hon.
Win. 11. Armstong, counsel for the
prosecution, would not consent. " He
then waived a hearing, when hail in
the sum of $">.000 was demanded for
his appearance at Erie on the third
Monday of next month. The bail
not being at hand he was taken to
In the evening Herrington was ta
ken before Judge Strong with the
ex|x>ctali'>n of having his bail reduc

circulated in this county —persons
who patronize such literature are no
better than the publishers of it.
Politics are growing more and more
corrupt, ami, but for the increasing
vigilance and independence of the
newspaper press, the outlook for the
country would be far from encourag
ing. Put even the worst evils usual
ly work their own cure in the long
run. Just as the politicians of both
parties seemed to have reached the
lowest depths of venality and reck
lessness, and the peopL*, grown al
most hopelessly indifferent, seemed to
have resigned everything to their self
appointed masters, the newspapers
began rebelling against the tyranny
of parly and asserting their right and
duty to criticise freely obuoxious men
or measures. It is this growing fear
lessness and candor of formerly slavish
organs which promise to purify ouri
politics and rectify the innumerable
abuses which have taken root in lo
calities where either party lias long
been in undisturbed possession of
power Nor is this decline of corrupt
servility confined to the great city
dailies, the smallest pari of whose sup
port comes from party organizations,
out the country weeklies ure fast ris
ing to a higher appreciation of the'
dutiis and proprieties of journalism. I

made information before es<p,
charging the relators with a wilful vala

for, the relators contending that they are
not liable to any criminal prosecution in
consequence of any thing alleged in the
information, warrant and commitment
The first question to be determined is,
what are the duties of the assessors in
making the valuation of property 1 By the
•id section of the Act approved Apriflfith
18-54 [p. *. pngo oil] it was made the duly
of the assessors of the several wards, town
shins and districts, previous to oa< h trien
nial assessment, to meet at the offlco of the
County Commissioner, and with the Com
missioners " to fix some uniform standard
to ascertain tho real value of all property
made taxable bylaw" Under this pro
vision the assessors wen' accustomed to
fix the standard at one-half, one third or
oiie-l<N>r:li the actual value and assass the
property accordingly. By the 4th section
of llie Act of May loth, 1811. the right of
the assessors to fix a standard of values
was taken away, and it was provided that
'from and after the passage of tnis act. it
shall be the duty of the several asscsor>
and as-istnnt assessors, toasess, rate and
value all objegts of taxation, whether forj
state, county, city district ward, township
or borough purposes according tc the ac
tual value thereof, and at such rates and
prices for which the same would trparutrly*
bona fide sellT" Not as is sometimes con-j
tended at tho prices fur which all tho pro
perty in the ward or township would sell,
if nil the property was put to a sale at the
same time hut at what each item of pro-j
perty would bring at a public sale, after,
full notice, if it was the only property s. Id.
That this is the proper construction of tlx 1
Act will he mauc manifest hereafter. Thi-!
fixes ih.'diity of the nssc-ors to value all!
property made taxable by inw at what;
they honwstly and conscientiously boliev
it to be really worth. Their oath preacri ;
bod by the 9th section of the Act of July j
"7th 1812, defines very plainly their dutie-;
in this respect.
The only other question involve 1 is, are
assessors who rvfuso to perform the duties
thus enjoined liable to a criminal pmseeu
Ition'' Die Hd section of the Act of May
lbth. 1811, provides; "If any assessor or
ussistaiil assessor shall knowingly ami in
tentionally omit, neglect or refuse to as
sess or return any property, person or
thing made taxable by law, or shall iin
knowingly ami intentionally assess, rate
or mine the same tit more or trim thou he
shall know mill believe the just cash rulne
or rate thereof, or neglect or refuse to as
sess any ti); required by law, lie shall he
guilty of a misdemeanor in ofjjc-e, and on
conviction thereof he subject to imprison
ment, not less tliun three nor more than
twelve month's and fined in a sum not less
than one hundred nor more than two hun
dred dollars." This settles their liability
to a criminal prosecution for a wilful re
fusal to a-sess property at wliul they know
or honestly believe its actual value is.
Mistakes or errors of judgment, where the
assessors are acting in good faith, cannot
be punished by any proceedings ; but a
refusal lo comply with the plain mandate
gftba law hm and should he.
It is true there is another retnedy. By
the 4th section of the Act of limy loth,
1841, the County Commissioners, after the
assessments are returned into the office,
are authorized, "iftboy believe any pru-

"The engineer quickly turned on the

the steam, could not be ascertained until
i it cleared away, which it did in a few mo
" merits, disclosing to the astonished gar.o of
! the showmen a curious and at the same
. time gratifying sight. There lay the
huge elephant upon the deck, cowering
tremblingly down, uttcfing means of pain
| and fright, while a little beyond was the
■ rhinoceros snugly ensconced in his cage,
quaking and shivering with fear, where he
had refloated the instant the steam was
. upon him. The attendants sprang quick
i ly forward and closed and bolted the door
! of his cage, thus securing themselves from
further molestation from him
"Five horses were found killed, as also

The familiar text, "Judge not, that yc
b not judged,,' was clearly explained and
-turdily applied to common life by Mr.
! Beecher
This command, said Mr. Beecher, does
; not point t>> a formal regulating process
which is oflentimeapndispensiblc to the at*
j fairs <>f men. We are called to discrimi
nate between puh|jc good ant] evil, truth
and fal-ehood, not abstractly but as they
| appear in the conduct of men. It would
be a spurious charity which would con
found moral qualities in men. If a man
assails me with vituperation and the lan
guage of hitterneas it is uncharitable in
me to say that man is praising mo. Ifaman
is in my cherry tree stealing uiy cherries
it would he false charitv Jfor me to say
he is only borrowing. %\ e have a right
lo loot at things as they are,
and in dealing with men you must judge
of moral quality and lo a certain extent
also of antecedent disposition. The safety
of your own affairs and of those commit
ted to your charge demands a just and
Careful judgement of men. So, then, you
should not commit trusts to untrustworthy
men. It would not bo safe to put men
upon the bench fyr the impartial adminis
tration of justice who are partial and us
fair themselves. you must, of course,
discriminate. The disposition to upchur
ilable judgement springs, not from good
but fr<>m the malign elements in man.
Wc are all children of (lod, und all pos
sessed of a com men weakness, of a cum*
mon ,'temptableness," of a catniuon sin
fulness, and we all have a common de
pendence on the Divine forgiveness; for
life and liberty. It is not for us, united
by such common weakness, to occupy
ourselves in raking up on every hand ana
at every opportunity those things which
are common tc us and others.

Persons in perfect health are frequently

while another may have llie forces of lif

1 predecessors and bv ttie laxity of hit verr
judges. Applying indirectly this proposi
tion l> Tweed and his romp anions, over
laid n in their vices, he remarked the great
out cry of virtuous indignation and hor
ror, wnich had followed the exposure of
great fraud', and the enmpla.ent tali-Me

iuttice of the chief robber't hanithment to

Beecher, ifjuslice had had its course there
would have been siUU 000 men there in 1
-lead of one. A man goes to Coug'ess in
the lnte-est of public improvement*. He
finds how railroad management affiliates
with his tates. He finds ft thing already
created, already grown. K very hod r has
got his bucket and gels a dip ef the.ill-got
ten plunder, and by and by n man coiues'
..lung with a larger bucket and a larger
dipPhr, and he goes in a little deeper and;
makes a bigger splash and gels caught']
Then by the "artilleries of the committees!
he is shot to pieces, and people hold up ,
their hands in horror while they cry out,!
"Did you avortoe such a miscreant."
Now, you are the nlphahet and ho is the
word spelled! [Laughter.] The villain ,
that happens to he first struck by yourj,
lightning is considered the basest of men. (
Is this just judgement? 1 don't say ,
bad men are not bad because they are!
made so by men behind them, but this I:
say, that "except ye repent, ye Uiall all!
likewise perish " and if you are going
to condemn representative criminal;, re
member whom they represent. No stream
goes hsgiicr tliun its fountain' and in

ho lives. It it not for us in hold high our
heads and; say triumphantly, ''Lo 1 see |
how God hates si liners.'' It is for us to •
say, with bowed and submissive heads, ;
"Lord. I have laid this stumbling block |
