In Iho alillnem of the morning of the IV u It., at Just I o clock, toe Inmatos of the Tremont house, tho principal hotel in Claromont, N. H , wore startled by an alarm of fire, which was sent through the house with lightning ra pidity, as quickly followed by dense volumes of smoke. There were forty persons in tho house at the time, and Mr. Deming, who discovered the tire, al once realized tho terrible situation of affairs. On through the corridors he rushed, while the stifling smoke al most choked his utterance. lie forced in doors unceremoniously where no re sponse came to bis loud and hurried knocks, passed on to tho next and call ed on all who could como forth to act as Toluntocra in rousing the sleeping inmates, who slumbered on unconscious of the horrible death which hovered around their pillows. Half a docon people joined Mr. Deming and proceed ed to the seoond and third floors, to give the alarm and then floe for their lives. The botel was a wooden build ing, so that the flames had plenty of material to toco on, ana out a rew mo ments were left tor escape, terror- stricken men, women and children rushed frantically through the blinding smoke, half asleep, and completely be wildered by tbe sudden alarm ana tne triKhtlul scene which met inem as tney emerged from their rooms. There was no time to spare, bow- ever, and tbe instinct of sclf-preserva. tion was at work promptly to suggest means of escape. There was only one stair-way, and that was narrow and full of smoke and flames alter nve mm utes, so that . it was useless as an avonue of egress, windows were thrown up only to increase the draft and stimulate the flames, which were now furiously hissing through the frail strnoture. . Men and women jumped to the vard below in a nude or partly dressed condition, others appeared at the upper windows ottering ths most piercing sbricits lor aid in tnetr terrioie extremity. ' it was an awiui spectacio, and one which will never be forgotten by these who witnessed it. The two lowor floors were toon cleared of their occupants, but tbe npper stones still contained human beings whoso chances of escape from a fiery death were de creasing rapidly. The town baa become aiarmeu, ana from all sections men and women poured in to render what assistant tbey could or to gate on mo ternoie eoene which was Doing enacted. ljaa- ders were promptly put up against the walls for the purpose of extricating tne poor people who were bousod in by flame and smoke. Ono man whose room was on an npper story, crawled out through tho window, seised a light ning rod and coolly crawled down to the gronnd with only blistered bands and bruised limbs, lie waa loudly cheered as he slowly crept down, while men and women held their broatb lest tbe rod would eive way and throw him heavily to the froaon ground, wbon bis death would bar been as certain as if he bad romained in the burning build ing. Mr. i II. Gibson, one of the proprietors of tho bouse, with his wife and child, escaped trom a window oi the second story, the plucky woman holding the child and clinging to tha blind while be obtained a board upon which mother and child slid to tha ground in porfect safoty, followed by Air. Gibson, who promptly re enterea the building to lend what aid he could in rescuing the others. OwiDg to some repairs Mrs. Gibson mother of tbe same gentleman, bad been placed temporarily in a anaro room and tbo son rushed frantically in search of bor, but waa unable to reach her in time and she perished in tbo flames. Anna Johnson, a chamber girl, wboav room was on the third floor, tried to escape from the ball through tbe stain, but found a solid wall of firs obstructioir ber paseairo. She ran back to ber room, raised tbe window and bung out as far aa possible with out falling, and screamed frantically for assistance. She was soon envelop ed in a huge cloud of smoke, which was occasionally lit np by flashes of flam as tbe fire worked its way up ward. Half a dozen bands immediately seixed a ladder and ran itnpagainsttbi wall. A man volunteered to climb up to the poor girl's aid, but he came back blinded with smoke and almost inJcn aihla. Another volunteered, stepped into bis place and toiled ap tba lad der, but be, too, came down without tb priae so much coveted. Another man stepped from tbe crowd, and amid tbe M.Anra nf tha aaaemhlaire ran UDsteD af ter step until be waxiest in the clouds of smoke which relied out in dense maaa ea from the doomed building. He reached the poor, helpless girl, but could nut pull her oat as she had faint ad. and must have been caught by Bomulbing on the iniide, from which hi waa snabla to deliver tier, xie name batik withoutaoooranliihing Dismission, aad oo one else would venture. . There sb remained antil th wall tell in, and .k. k..n. . .hnrwad maai amid thai burning ruin. About the same time Mrs. S. A. Chase, a pastry cook in the establish ment ; Lyda Morrill, a table girl, and Charlea Morgan, a guest at the house, went down with tho tumbling walls, mingling Uioir shrieks with tbe horri ble din and crash which provailed within and without. The clerk, Fred Marvin, and wife ocoupied a room on the third floor. As soon as the alarm leached them thoy rushed out, and, finding the corridor blocked by flame and smoke, closed their door and waited for assistance None came, and the terrible alterna tive proBented itself of perishing in tho flames or jumping to the ground. The latter was decided on and Mr. Marvin sprang from tho window, alighting on bis feet. lie escaped with some bruises. Ills wile followed, and although the stunned husband and others tried to break the fall, she sustained several in ternal injuries which may prove fatal. As soon us the building full In, oager hands went to work to search for the bodies. The first one discovered was that of Mrs. Gibson. It was charred beyond all resemblance to humanity, but was reoognited by a gold filled tooth found near by. Miss Johnson's was next found, and was rocogmxed oy portions of her drons not burned. Mor gan's body was not found, but the search will be renowed. Tho following oscapod uninjured : J. Kimball, of Nashua, N. H.,; Colo nel N. W. Coggswell, of Ilenniker, N. II., savings bank commissioner at New Hampshire ; G. D. Moshor, of 1'ine Meadow, Conn. : Si. U. fJumnungs, of Boston. The building having fallon In, atten tion was now turned to tbe adjoining property, which was in danger, as tho flames wore spreading. The injured people wore promptly taken to placos of rest and medical attendance celled in, whilo tho firemen worked with a will to chock the progress of the firo. They did not succeed, however, until three frame buildings, oocnpiod by H. A. Dickinson 4 Co., boots and shoes; D. fatten, harness and trunks : Mrs. Harlow, dressmaker, and E. Lcfcbvro, upholstorer, were totally de frayed. Li. 11. I'atton, suitors slight loss ; insurance Fire Association 000. 11. A. Dickinson A Co., slight loss ; insured.

The Licking connty (Ohio) court house, a bandsome structure with lour fronts, standing in tho centre of the public sauaro at Newark, and just fin ished at a cost ot zuu,ow, caugni ure in the oopola from ages ict which was usod to illuminate the clock, at twelve o'clock Saturday, and burned down to the second story. Tbo building is in sured for $20,000 only. Almost all of the Important oounty records are saf. Th militia are on amy, guaruing tne county properly. Great excitement prevails among tbe citizens ana a largo number ol country pooplo are stopping in town. A lad named Kramor and a man named Smythe wor badly injured by falling timber. THE MULE. The mulo la the only animal that Noah didn't take into tho ark with bim. I have looked ovot the freight list carefully, and could not ae a mule way-billed for any place. So clear headed a man as Noab did not dare to tak one on board, aa he knew he would kick a bole through her in loss than a week. 1 don't know a man on who bead you could pour quicksilver and run lesa risk nf spilling it off than on Noah's. He was a dreadfully level- hoaded man, and before tbe rresbet was over everybody on earth realised the fact. Tb origin of tb tnuU ia enveloped in a good doal of mystery. Tradition informs ns that when the flood bad subsided, and the ark had laid on Mount Ararat, Noab was very much surprised in one ot his observations to find a good, healthy mule standing on tb top of ao adjoining mountain. Tb same tradition informs ns that th mul ia the only animal tbat lived through tbe flood outside the aik. The mule can be considered in a good many ways, thoagh th worst ptar to consider Dim as uirecuy irora behiud, anywher within a radius ot tb feet. I never consider a mule from tbat point unices 1 am looking out through the flue ot a boner. , Tb word mule come from the Greek and signifies "to stop," and the mul himself comes to a slop also. Like multiplied by like produce like. Grasshopper multiplied by grasshop pers produce a famine, and potato bugs , . ' , j i . . . i . .) - muivipiiwu uy jjuieui wgyt pnmewi at rise in th price or yeast. Hut when I you try to multiply mule tbey won't multiply, and hence tho word mule. You may study your arithmetic and road through all of Train's lectures, but you can't discover why that is so any mora than, you could why a woman can not put on a rubber with out leaning up against something. Tbo mule has one moro leg than a milking stool, and be can stand oa one and wavo the other tree around in as many different directions. He has only thruo senses, boaring, seoing and smell ing, lie has no more sense ot taste than a stone jug, and will eat anything tbat contains nutriment, and ba don't care two cents whether it be ono per cent, or uinoty-nir.o. All he asks is to pass him along his platu, with what ever happens to bo hundy around the pantry, and be won t go away and blow bow poor the steak is. Ho just eats whatever is set before bim and auks na questions. , It 1 were to have a large picture of innocence to hang up in my parlor, and I did not wish to sit for myself, I should get a correct likeness of a mulo. There is innocenco enough depicted in a mule's countenance to fit out a Sun day school class. It looks as guileless as an angle worm. A mule never grows old or dies, Once brought into existence he con tinues on f'orover. The original mulo ia now alive somewhere in tho South, and ia named Robort Toombs, secause be is so stubborn. Mules are chiefly found in the South and West. They have been mors abus ed that Judos Iscariot. A boy who would not throw a stono at a mule when be got a chance would be con sidered by his parents too mean to raise. The mulo is a good worker, but he cannot be depended oir. He is liable to strike, and when a mule strike, hu man calculation fails to find out any rule by which to reckon when be will go to work again. It ia useless to pound bim, tor he will stand more boating tbun a sitting-room carpet. Ho bus beon known to stand eleven days in one place, apparently thinking of something, and then start off again as though nothing had happened. Down South, when they have a sur plus of small darkies on tho plantation, they send them out into the barnyard to play wbero thora is a loose mulo. Thoy always bid them good-by when thoy start out, for they are sure the parting will be final. This is tbo most economical stylo of funeral now in tho market. . , To fully appreciate tho mulo one should hear bis voice. You can never really know whether you like a mule or not till you have heard him Bing. 1 attended a mule concert at Fort Shell ing. The programme opened with a Boprano solo, and then swung into a duet, and then pranced off into a trio, lollowad op by a quartet, and ending with a full chorus of one hundred and fifty mules. I didn't bear the whole thing, for when I came to the rogi mental surgoon was standing over me giving ma powerful restorativos, and I beard, him say that I might possibly ot out agnin, though 1 never would o a well man again. I have been through tho New York Stock Ex change and spent part of a day In a boiler factory, and nave been on one or two Sunday school excursions for children, but I never knew what a noise was till 1 beard a lot ot army mules bray. One of the doad certainties about a mule ia that he ia sura-footed, especial ly with bis bind feet. He never mis places them. If ho advertise that bis bis feet will bo at a certain spot at a certain time, with a sam ple of mulo shoes, to which ho would can your attention, yon win al ways find them there at the appointed time. He is as reliable aa the day of judgment, and be never cancels an en gagement. Avery man now living wbo drove a mule team during tne war draws a pension. ' 1 I savor owned a mulo. . 1 came near buying one onoo. He was a fine-look ing animal : bis cars stood np like the side spires on an Episcopal church His tail was trimmed down so that it looked like a tar brush loaning up against bim. . He waa striped off like the American ftsg, and itapbaols c reruns never looked moro angelic than did that mule. Ho looked all inno cence, though be was so in no sense, The owner sat in the wagon, with hie chin resting on bis band and his elbow on bis knee. In tbe other band be held a stick with a brad in tho end of it. I examined the mule and asked the man a few questions, and, out ol more form, inquired it tho mule was kind, or il be kicked. , "Kind? kick?" said the man, and those woro the last words be over uttered. He reached his slick over the front of the wagon, and stuck tha brad into tbe mule, it waa awtui to see a man snuflcd out aa quickly aa he was. It almost took my breath he went so suddenly. 1 never saw the thread of lifo snap so abruptly as it did on tbat occasion, no aiun t nave time to send a message to bis family. That mulo simply ducked his bead, and then a pair of beds flow out bo hind ; there was a cTosli, a flying ol splinters, and that was all; the next moment mat muio ana myseii sioaa alone, my face covered with astonish ment two fuel deep, and his covered with part f an old bridle. The next day I read an account in the tele graphic news of shower of flesh in Kentucky. I was tho only man that could explain that phenomena, and I did not dar to lest l snouiu oa impli cated in the affair with tb other mulo. I have aeon death in many, forma, but don't recollect of more pomp ana disnlav than on that occasion. If 1 had my choice to either work in a nitro glycerine factory or take car oi a mule, 1 should go tor tbs factory, as in case of an explosion there would be more possibility ot my friends finding some little mementoes of m with which to asauago thoir grief. A Tory small pice of m woald lighten a very big sorrow. I will bunt round and if I find any other facts that belong to tbe mule, I will send them to yon by express, C. O, D. Baltimore Sun. It not nnlrequently happens in this world of mistake and thougbtlessoe, that a man, aron th boat of men, may once or twice during a long or other wise faultless life kiss a hired girl, by mistake, for hia wife.

REPUBLICAN, POSTOFF1CE DEPARTMENT ROBBERIES. i i ' UOW IT HAS BEEN DONE. - No Department ot the Federal Gov ernment ib so useful to tbo millions as tho I'ostoulco patron ixed by all yet it is always bankrupt. However, since tb Democrats have obtained control of Congress, and takon an Inside view of bow things are done, soma light is being thrown on tbe tbelts committed by Department rings. In the last days of the late Congress, Mr. Money, of Tennesseo, in a speeoh in tbs House, made some interesting and suggestive disclosures concerning too mannor in which the mail route letlings are mado by the postofllce de partment. Everybody knows that the administration of tbia department for many years baa enjoyed a reputation for corruption in which it bas only been rivalled by tbe Interior Depart ment. Its ovll repute culminated when Postmaster General Crcsswell was in charge, and when tbe praotlce of straw bidding was at its height, Under that system irresponsible dummies bid low prices in tbe interest ot tbo favored parties who put in their offers at high rates, and who finally secured the con tracts under the manipulation of the department and through tbe failure of the dummies to meet ltd requirements. By various devices and with many twi?'.lngs this general plan of opera tions was so conducted as to he nearly nniformly successful in putting tbe contracts in the bands of those who bad offered to do the work at the high est prises ; and it is not to be supposed, and never ,bas been imagined that the officials of the Postofllce Department did not profit largely by the profitable issue ot these base combinations with the contractors. This plan of milking the department was so thoroughly exposed alter the Cresswell administration that it seems to have boen given np for another that is just as profitable, quite as efficacious, and a good doal more ingenious. Mr. Money makes the first exposure of it that wo have obsorved. The adver tisements of the leltings state a certain number of trips to be performed in a specified time over each routo. But the depaitmoot bas the power to change the. torms of the contract, by increasing the number of trips, or de creasing tho time in which thoy are to be made, or by doing both. It ia not dillicull to bo trow it can cbango an apparently onerous con tract into a very profitable one in tins way, since of courso increased service requires increased payment. The law says that when the speed is expedited tho increased pay shall be in the origi nal pay as the increase of stock nood ed to do the work is to tbe slock need ed to do it under the original contract. And when the number of trips aro in creased the law provides that the pay may be Increased in proportion to tbe increased trips. These provisions are sufficient to protect tho contractor and tho government if they are fairly car ried out; but no one needs to be told that a dishonest or careless adminis tration of tbo postofHo department can result in great injustice to tb gov ernment in making these charges ot contract ; and wbon we find that an ex amination of many or them wbich have been made, shows that the contractors bave been unduly profited at th coat of the governmout, we have right to concludo that tbore has been collusion between the contractors and the post ofllce officials, and to suspect that tbe department is as much a don of thieves now as it bas ever beea. Mr. Money mentions in detail two caseB out ol many that be bas detected ono being in a long and cosily routo in Texas and Arizona, and one, a little thino- inst aerntm Lha border in Marv. land. The first Is from Fort Worth, Texas, to Yuma, Arizona, to run from July 1st, 1878, for, four years, l.DbO miles, soven times a wcok ; timo, sev enteen duys; compensation, $131,000 per annum. A month anor it com menced, on August 0, 1878, iiraay," Assistant Postmaster General, indorsed on it an order decreasing the time to thirteen days, and giving tbe contract or 11(15,000 additional pay per annum. lie says in bis certificate that this additional compensation is less than what is warranted by tbo law, but wbo will believe tbat H oosts more than twico as much to carry the mails 1,&00 miles in thirteen days as it did to car ry them that distance in seven toon days? It was slow tim even at the tasteet rate, only amounting to a speod of five miles an hour. T he previous history of the routo shows the depart ment's guilty manipulation of It. A part of it. trom Mesilla to San Diego, was lot in 1870 for $124,000, served twice a wock. The speed was increas ed and th scrvioo raised first to three time and next to aoven time a week, and the pric increased to $218,460, In 1874 it was again let, the trips be ing reduced in the advertisement of the routo from seven to three a week. The contract was taken at $55,000. Shortly afterwards th trip war once moro increased to seven a week, the time oxpeditod and the price raised to $233,333. Then camo the letting of last year, when the number of trips re malncd nnchshged, but th time was increased only to bo decreased again alter a month bad gono by. . , It is not possible, to acquit the de partment of criminality in tbia hide and seek playing with this rout ainoe 1870, unless we credit it with an in tensity of lucfficicocy aud stupidity which is Soareely human.".' It seems teo apparent that a favored cor. tractor had an understanding with some one in the department which assured bim of such favorable changes In bis con tract as enabled him to bid for it at a price which would bo aur to get it. Mr. Money's facta were obtained in tbe course of an investigation of those matters by bis committee; and It was further testified before them by ona of th sub-out i actors in this routo that instead ol being 1,560 miles long it was only 1,414. Tbo .Maryland route, he instances, is lrom Edgewood to Del Air, botwaoa which place each week twelve trips and two half trips are run bv the mail contractor. The distance is eleven ana a nan mile. ' For carrying -the mails over tbat route and six miles beyond th oontrattor received $770.00. Tha time between hdgwood and JSol Air was three hours, but Del Air wanted Its mails brought more quickly. It had thre mails dally, bat not anhaturally its people thought that three hours was very slow time over eleven ana i hall miles. Tha beat men in tb ooun try signed a petition for increased speed : and the department gave th contractor $1,070 additional a year for doing the eleven and a half miles In two boors. ' There may not bar been a steal in this ; an would think it was too small to afford a pric that would buy aven a postofllc conscience ; but who will defend its propriety ? . Th contractor swore to it, It h aald ; bH what a credulous fellow It must have been who believed such an oath I It was "Brady" who did it. Brady believed thut it cost moro than twice aa much ta travel 1,560 miles in thir teen hours as it did to get over it in Boventoon ; and moro than twico as much to travel eleven and a halt miles in two hours aa it did to go tbe same distance in three hours. Credulous Brady I Ho seems to have had all these contracts to manipulate ; and ho ia the Brady who went to Florida to see to a fair count there for Hayes ; and this ia tho same Brady who turned up in possession of the stolen ciphor dispatches that Morion's committco had received and pretended to return. Evidently Brady is a man of parts, and ii ha does seem in some ot theso transactions to have beon very stupid indeed, possibly it was only so in seeming, and that tact Brady is mora knave than fool, Laneatter In-telligencer. IN EL UENCE OF MIND ON MIND Experience has shown that, by an effort ot the will, tbe thoughts of one mind may be impressed upon that of another, that the emotions, tho joys, and tbe Borrows of tho directing, con trolling mind of tho one, may become the subject ot consciousness in that of tbo other without any visible exterior communication. Not only is this tbe case where tbe mental condition of the recipient has beon rendered highly sen sitive through mesmeric or other in fluencea, but even in tb normal con dition it is equally true. There aro but few men, perhaps, competent of continuous thought, who have not fre quently found, during periods of pro found mental abstraction in tho pres ence of others, tbat tbeir thought were indentical with those of their neighbor, although no words may have passed between them, nor had theso common thoughts any connection with the cir cumstances immediately surrounding them or with any previous conversation. Tho question, we think, bas been fairly stated ; bow then aro wo to account tor these extraordinary phenomena ? Can we find any rational mode by which this transference of thought can be satisfactorily accounted for? Tbat it is done through tho agency of natur al laws no ono man will doubt. Physi cally speaking, we know that action and reaction are fatal ; may not this law obtain in our mental operations ? It this hypothesis should bo assumed to be correct, it might bo observed that no man's thoughts would be exclusive ly bis own, and thus tho businoss, tho interests, and pleasures of life would bo seriously deranged. Fortunately, tho conditions fuvorablo for this transfer ence of thought are in by fur the great est number of cases wauling, and thus no serious inconvenienco is tell either n public or private affairs. Th fact,' howovcr, that theso cases aro rare and exceptionable, is no more evidence against their oxistenco, than tho fact that it doea not thunder and lighting every day ia evidenco against the oc curence ol thunder ana lightning, in fact, all tbo phenomena of nature do pends upond conditions. Take your healthy, vigorous plant from Its bath of sunshine and moisture deprive it ot both ; see bow quickly it tades and dioa. One of tbe necessary conditions for the existence ol man upon this earth is a proper supply ot oxygen even lnnnimato nature cannot exist without conditions ; beat, light, and electricity depend upon oondition and aro mutually convertible. Winds and storms, rain and snow, dearth and floods, depend upon conditions. Vt bat then aro tbe conditions by which mind may operate upon mind in oonsequence ol a mere determination of th will ? This is not tbe placa to show, as it has boon shown, and that abundantly proved, that all tho shades and variety of colors in this beautilul world of ours, are due to' the length of these same tuoral wave. In order, however, to assist tho Imagination to form some conception or tho possiblo relation bo- twoeu light, beat and thought. I will take a particular example lmaginea but bloom af iron, in one of our rolling mills, radiating its beat in all directions ; bow do wo bocomo conscious ol tho heat and color of this mass of iron? This heated bull is tbo state of intense molecular agitation ; this molecular agitation acting upon the other which surrounds it upon all sidos produces r.thorcal waves, those waves strike up on our bodies and produce to us tho consciousness of heat, falling upon the eye they givo us the conception of color, if then, the vibration of an in animate mass acting upon tb Ether can give us conception ot color, why may not tbe moculur motion of the brain during tho process of thinking and acting through tbis sumo medium of colors communicate to ns the thoughts oi another? ... ,i . W bat resemblance is tbore between tho modo in wbicb we becomo consci ous of light and heat, and that of receiv ing tho montal impressions of others ? In the consideration ol this question we aasunio that tbo dynamical theory of heat, and the unadulatory theory of light are true, as they have not only accounted for all known phenomena, but bave predicted the unknown, which subsequent research baa shown to bo true. ... What is light and beat? Tha motion of tho nltiinato particles of a heated body. How do wS become consciouB ot light and heat ? By the dostraotioa of the Ktberoal wave set ib motion by the swing ol tbe ultimate particles. Wo become conscious of light through the destruction ot these wavos by our organ ol sigut, ot beat, by tbe break Ing of those waves upon our bodies. A few words ot explsnation to the un scientific reader raay hero be nccoasary. The htber relerred to above is suppoa ed to bo a substance of almost infinite tenuitv and elasticity, that not only exlonds through all ISpaco, but as ex periment has proved, even surronnds ta very molecules of matter.' Our consciousness of lb existenoo of the molten masses of iron io our puddling liirnacus, the light and warmth OT the sun, the light ot tha fixed stars is duo to the same causo by th andnlationa ol tbia Ether act in motion by tbe vib rations, or rattier oacilations ol these boated bodies. Doea then tho law of Action and re action apply to mental as well as phys ical phonomcna? ' The spectroscope ba Informed us, by videnow ot tbo moat convincing kind,-of tb eiiBtonos of Iron aad other terroslial metals, or their vapors in the sun, a fixed stars j thus estab lishing the identity of the material com posing tho distant bodies with tbat of oar own planet, Ether bnngs ns the light of thus far distant suns: will it ever bring us evidence of the Intelligence of organised beings, inhabitants oi id planet revolving abont those remote eantrea ot motion f nnstmry tnoc. .

" , POLITICAL LEQIHLJiTlOS. Th New York Nation, whil depre ciating; tba repeal of tb law providing for the appointment ol federal super visors of elections, oonfiued to duties of obaervauou merely, and without lowers of arrest, justly observe tbat t i absurd, however, to stigmatiai tb movement in favor of repeal as "revo lutionary." Whatever legislation ona Congress may adopt a subsequent Con gress may repeal. It ia no more "rev olutionary" for Democrats, when lo a majority In both bouses, to repeal any of tbe legislation adopted by Republi oana when thoy were in power than it was "revolutionary" for tb Republi can to mart H.-"ior are-tha Repub licans, as the Nation points out, In any Eoaition to Had - much fault with tb lemocrat, If, all other means failing, thoy should tack the proposed measaro of repeal on to aoin of tb mora im portant appropriation bill, with a view of compelling tha President to girt bis assent to luem, or sis assume in re ponsibility of blocking th wheels of government It waa by just such tac tics, the A anon remind iu iuipuouoan rcadors, that some oi th more ob noxious laws wbicb tha Democrats are now Booking to repeal were forced through Congress aa"ridra,"orassnd- menu tacked on to appropriation or other billa to which they were not ger mane. . Tb original provisions for th . appointment of supervisor and special deputy marshals to serve at flections, ill be lound in tb bill and out Mo tions of th act ol July 14, 1870, which is entitled "An act to amend tb naturalization laws and to punish erimes against tb aame." - Th pro vision wbich authorized the appoint ment of supervisors in congressional district ouUHd of eiuea ot 20,000 in habitants was engrafted as an amend ment on the "civil appropriation bill" of June 10, 1872. Undoubtedly th true course ia that rhich Senator Beck, of Kentucky, foreshadowed would be taken in bi remarks to tb Senate oo tha last day ot last session, viz., to present to the President as distinct and independent measures th repeal of tb teat oath and disqualifying sections of the lie- vised Statutos relating to juries In tb United states courts, and ot so much of the statutes regulating the conduct of elections for Representatives in Con gress and electors lor rrosident and Vice-President as the two houses may be disposed to insist upon. It tha President should veto these bills it would then be time enough to adopt tho alternative plan of attaohing them as amendments to tha appropriation bills, in regard to tb test oalb ana jury law thereougbttobe,and we pre sume there will be, no serious difficul ty. It would be indeed a strange ano maly il men who actively participated in the rebellion can as Senators and Representatives help to make laws for tbe whole oountry, and yet as jurors disqualified to enlorca them. A mora curious spectacle still would be tbat oi an ex-officer of the Confederate army sitting as a judge in a United Slates court, while any one who had given him "aid and comfort while In arms against the government should be ex cluded from serving as a Jurer in bis court With respect to tb federal election laws, the provision for the appointment ol supervisors, one from each party, to be present at tbo elections, to watch the proceedings, to Inspect tha ballot box and to verify the count, may be considered much less objectionable and fraught with much Iobb dangorous con sequences than the usurpation of th police powers oi th States on days of Congressional or Presidential elections by an army ol deputy marshals. 1 be deputy marshal business is of doubtful (onstitutionality and dangerous prece dent The prohibition of the presence and use of the federal troops at ths polls is another measure of repeal which ia in entire accordance with tb beat tra ditions of English as well aa American liberty. These are tha important ques tions which will engage the attention of Congress during the extra session of tbo Forty-sixth Congress, and to th consideration of which, it ia assumed, its time will ba chiefly given. There ia little in th appropriation bills them selves that is likely to give rise to re newed discussion or create any neces sity for a long session. Lot its bop that a spirit oi conservation, or wis moderation and patriotism will so eon trol lha action of tbe opposing parties that the graver constitutional questions involved may ba met and disposed of without unnecessary delay, and with out detriment to tbe interests of the country.
