character of the animals they se

What Montgomery Blair thinks of
his resolution which passed the Mary
land legislature last week, is given in
the following Washington intelligence
of 2 inst;
Montgomery Blair was on the floor of
the House, this afternoon, and attracted
general and widespread attention on
both sides of the Chamber. A number of
members had short conference* wbh
him, and nearly every one had aooia
question to ask in regard to the resolu
tions proposing to proceed to a proper
decision of the last Presidential election.
This evening Mr. Blair anmmed up the
impression which these rapid conferen
ces had left on him, by saying that be
was convinced that a majority of the
House would certainly be in favorofany
legislation which might be needed to
make effective the resolutions passed by
the Maryland Legislature, and opea {he
way for the appearance of the Attorn•-
General of that State, in obedience, I**
fore the Snpreme Court. Of the result
of such an appearance Mr. Blair said he
had no doubt whatever, and he express
ed it as his opinion that Mr. Tilden
wonld be in the White House sixty days
after the case was opened in the Su
preme Conrt.
We notice in one of oar exchange •'
litigant claims the value of a railroad l
track laid on his land by a trespasser. ,
In 1569 the Neequehoning Valley
Railroad Company entered upon lands
of the Banting family, a mile or two
from Mauch Chunk, and proceeded to
build their road through it. No pro
ceedingw were taken under the railroad
law to secure the land, and consequently J
the Buntings brooght an action of ejects
ment against the company. When the
case came on for trial judgement was
confessed, and the railroad filed a peti
tion to base viewers iippointed to assess
•he damages suffered by the owner* of
the land. Viewers were appointed ac
cordingly, and fixed the amount at $4.-
555,94. Not satisfied with this the own
ers appealed from the viewers to the
Common I'leas, bat the second jury cut
down the sward to $1,074,41. It was
contended by the Bunting* at the triai
that as the company were trespassers
upon the land previona to the filing of
their petition everything erected upon
it belonged to the owners, consequently
the ties, rails, etc., laid across the isnd I
should be estimated by the jury in as
sessing damages as if they formed a part
of the land taken. The Court was in- j
structed to charge the jury to this effect,
but declined and instructed them that
the measure of damages was the market
value of the land at the time of its occu
pancy by the railroad. A writ of error
was taken by the Bantings to the Su
preme CouH, and yesterday on the argu
ment they contended that this charge of
the Court was erroneous, because what
ever was affixed to the land by a tres
passer immediately became a part of it
and was the property of the land-owner.
Decision reserved.

to know. The fact of a meeting is all

Mrs. Tilton told Mr. Ttltnn distinctly
that she would nerer lira with hnn
again. Thers were no lawyers, no
friends, no children made parties to the
consultation, and all the reported going

The House of Representatives of this

In the debate upon the Hunk t\>m
miwioner BUI, Hon. A. H. Hill made
some very interesting retnaika in favor
of greater economy in tlio State govern
ment, from which we extract the follow
ing to ahow some of the increased rt
penses that the party in power ha* im
posed npon the people:
in ISOOjm-t before the war the or-lt
nary axneuMW of the State, excluding all
extraordinary expenses, such as thn
payment of loan* or interest on the
public debt were $1,060,14388. In I SMS.
after the war, after Inflation had pro
duced the riae in price* they; were ft.
$87,773 -Vk Two dollar* then scarcely
purchased a* much a* one dodar now
From that time moiiex conatantly ap
preciated, and yet in 1876 the extraordi
nary expenses amounted to s.t,tk\,ist -
86 "being two hundred and sixty-five
per cent, above the expenses of 1860
This too at a period when a dollar won lit
purchase nearly a much a* in 1860.
Take the items of these expense* an.l
vou wili see how they have increased
" In 1860 the department expense* were
$47,910,89. In 1866. notwithstanding the
iticreaae of business occasioned hv the
war. thev were only $76,140 88 . vet til
1576 they are f16ti.204.45. being 265 per

1 been incurred.
In 1860 the Senate expenses were $55.-
207.39; the House expense* were $124.-
067.26. A Senator coat $1,612 and a
member of the House $1,240.
In 1860 the Senate expenses were $78,-
130.20, and of the House $193,947.05. A
>euator coat $2,39.1 and a member of the
House $1,936.
In 1874. the year before the increase

expenses were $134.460.t> and the
House expenses were $289 084 13. .V
Senator cost $4,074 aud a member of the

Now, strange to say. for the first leg s

Washington. Usnii J?J.—The manage
ment of the American ecuihit at the
Pans Exposition promisee to pan .aj;
with the usual amouut of corruption,
idiotic extravagance, and extravagant
idiocy. Twenty eomaii*iouer* have
been appointed, each with a salary of
i f1,200. and l£W honors-y commissioners
without sny salary. all of whom are
i popularly supposed to 1m charged with
the dutv of attending to the Aniao;i
exhibit, and the business connected
therewith. Of the commissi oners ap
pointed, not one, so far as I have l>een
able to ascertain, understands the
i French language, and many of them do
' violence to the English. Not only do
thev have clerks to do the rouiiui work
' of the commiseion. but men are emjwoy
id to attend the duties which the com-
I mission was specially selected to per
form. For instance, in the art depart
ment a special cor| of men is employed
in New York to aetett pictures to b
sent to Pari#, and a superintendent to
lake charge of the pictures aiut take*
Uiem to the Exposition. What bothers
. a msa of a common understanding is to
know what are to be the duties of the
I 120 commissioners if it is not to perform
the work that belong* u> them to do.

couajsts in the freight department, m+,.4

hibit is the Constitution. expense
of fitting ber out was $60,000 wkjj is
manned be'3."J officer* and 180 seamen,
and wis loaded ijvith a freight of 110
tons—about as miua. 43 an Erie canal
boat would carry. The whvis cost of the
crutae of this ship cannot lie 1 than
1100.000, which will bring the freight-,,
to SOOO per ton. In the case of the other
five ships to be employed, the rate will
be about in proportion. The amount of
freight to be transported is set down at
about 1,000 tons, for which six ship* are
to be employed, manned by 110 officers
and over 1,000 seamen, the whole mat of
which is set down at not less than $750,-
000, or about $750 per ton for the freight
transported. The infamy of this ex
travagance can only be fully appreciat-:
when it ia known that responsible
shipper* frare offered to transport that
freight, fab# ipsqred, for $-' per ton, 01
$2,000 for the whole, £gjt)st three-quar
ters of a million, which it firdj actually
c<it the Government. The fact ia, ;h ?
whole scheme of employing Govern-j
ment ships to transport this freight was
got up to give a horde of supernumera
ry deadbeala in the navy an opportum- |
ty to visit the Paris Exposition at the |
expense of the people.
The Tribune: Lord tiahsbqry's circus
lar to the European Powers' is apf of
the most interesting document* Itie
Eastern question has produced. It is
intended to explain why the British
Government refused to enter the Con
gress, a d to defend the attitude it has
assumed. In brief, Lord .Salisbury's
reason is that he could not allow the
Russians "reservations" to nullify prac
tically the Treaty of Paria and tiie dec
laration made at London in 1871. Tak
ing. then, the Kusso-Turkish treaty as
hit text, la>rd Salisbury contends that
the new Bulgaria would overslaugh the
neighboring provinces ; that the propos
ed Province would be essentially Rus
sian, and that Muscovite influence would
I permeate Thessaly and JSpirus to the
prejudice of Greece. He paints in
gloomy colors the general effei-t pf tjie
treaty, and discover* great wickedness j
in the indemnity which might be com
muted for more territory or made the
means of entirely subordinating Turk
ish to Russian policy. The gravest ob
jection, Lord Salisbury finds, apparent
ly, is that a nation which exercises for
mal authority over Egypt, should be so
closely pressed by the "outposts of a
"greatly superior Power that jte inde
pendent action, and even existence, is
almost impossible." It will be seen that
the new Foreign Minister exalts the
Russian triumph to a degree which has
not been attained at bt. Petersburg
where the people consider that the
Cxar might have made better terms. But
Lord Salisbury could hardly do other
wise since his dispatch is intended to
elicit Austrian and Greek approval in
view of coming events. The general ef
fect of the circular must be to widen the
breach between Russia and England,
and to make the former feel that slie
will have to defend with the sword the
rights she has wou on the battle-field
With England ao irreconcilably opposed
to the treaty, we shall probably hear no
more of the Congress. Diplomacy seems
to have reached its limit. England
must now aullenly submit to the Turk
ish settlement or openly resist it.

There has leen a giant deal ot ivuiaiilta

and it ia known that u prominent repub
lican Senator suggested amw lime ago
that one way to get Mr. iiaye* out, and
jicrhaps on the whole the timet judicious
for the republicana, would be to wait
until 1879, when the democrats in all
probability will have a majority in lath
houses, and then persuade thrui toli.ive
Tilden and Hendricks sworn in, receive

not strike the democrats so favorably
