LET THE PEOPLE IMMUNE IT.
We mean the nuisance, which is
becoming more prevalent every year,
of aspirants for the various county
nominations -traversing the county
and buttirn-holeing every voter they
'may, chance to meet. The time bar
come when the people should admin
ister some rebuke to this class. A
fair and dignified canvass is not dia
rephtable, although we believe the
better way would be for candidate!
to • announce _themselves through
some one or all of the party press,
and trust their claims to the people,
without subjecting thein to the an
noyance ot listening to the peculiar
claims of this man and- - that one.
Unless this method of securing nom
inations is depeiu3ed with the people
will - be compelled to • take the matter
in hand and resolve to select their
own - nominees, regardless of the
wishes of those who believe the-per
petuity of the party, if not the4bitn
try depends upon their nomination.
We do noLwish to be understood
by the foregoing paragraph' as dep
recating the practice of asking nomi
nations. We believe that an honor
able desire to hold public office is
commendable, arid it is only with
the means employed to secure politi=
cal posit4ons that we find fault. We
predict that her e after in this county,
the men who do the least boring for
nominations will meet with the best
success. A. word to the wise is suffi.
An important case, that of the
First National Bank of Lyons, lowa,
vs. the Ocean National Bank of New
York City, has been settled before
Judge Luau:MORE, by a verdict kir
the plaintiff for $53,208 68—the fall
amount claimed. The ground of the
snit was that the Ocean Bank had
allowed itself to be robbed of bonds
deposited for_ safe keeping by the
'p!aintiff, on invitation of the . defend
ant.. The defense was that the prop
erty was guarded with the same dili
gence as the defendant.% own; but
the verdict tends to establish the
doctrine that this is not sufficient,
but that it must be proven that the
care exercised .by the custodian is
reasonably adequate, • whether the
care for his own property be greater
or less. Considering the great sums
banks allow themselves to become
guardians of, the decision is signifi
IRON, Sarr-B iLLDENG.—Tfie recent
trial trip of th - Pennsylvania, built
at Chester, on the Delawere, for a
Philadelphia and Liverpool line of
iron steamers, has been more success
jai as to speed and the general per
formance of its. engines, than was
looked for even by the enthusiastic
projectors of the line. The iron ship
building interest on the Delaware is
growing rapidly, and promises to be
the great instrument in reviving
Awerican equality, if not supremacy,
lOnihe ocean, especially in iron ships.
TO° most powerful argument in favor
Olron ship-building is; be , seen in
the increase of that int. t. Taking
Great Britain as an exaTple, in 1851
thpre were 55 iron shiptibuilt of 15,-
896 tons, against 917 wooden ships,
the same year, of. 133,811 tons. In .
'lB7l there were 510 iron' ships built
of 348,475 tons, against 502 wooden
ships of 41,699 tons. Iron has thus
increased in twenty years 2,994 per
cent., against a decrease in wood of
68 per cent., in the same period.
POSTAILSTER GETERAL CRESWELL,
whci has jest returned from an ex

the opinion that the productive in

Creased ten t fold, and that hundreds
of Northern capitalists would settle
there except for the political hostil
ity: and social o'stracism to which
they would be subject. This is un
questionably true. Copital is natur
ally conservative, and the events of
the years that have transpired since
the war have by no means tended to
strengthen. confidence. Whenever
the South manifests an earnest desire
to become peaceful and law-abiding
in the sense that the North is peaceful
and law abiding, one of the greatest
drawbacks to the investment of out
side capital within her limits will
have been removed. But this she

Chief Justice SAIXON P. Cues,
died at the residences of his son-in

-on Monday the 7th inst.
) Judge CEASE had been in a critical
condition, from a combination of dis
eases for some years, hiii death there
fore did not greatly surprise the
country, but the news was received
with unfeigned sorrow and regret.
For many" eventful years, Judge
Cntsz occupied a prominent position
in the official affairs of thT3 country.
That he was a great - ittatesnia,n,
learned in the law and eminently
fitted for all the stations he occupied,
no one will deny; but he was a rest
less and aspiring man, who could
never bide his time, and therefore
sni3sed - some of the higher marks of
honor at which his ambition aimed,
and for which . he was eminently fit
ted. He was one of those statesmen
who conntantly intrigued to defeat
;the preferences of the people in ref
erence to other men, and therefore
lost the popular confidence at the
very period of his liiii_When he need

In, he did not trust the people, and
in return was rejected by them, shut
ting himself thus out from the only
road to popular favor and success, a
fact'which he realized, and undoubt
edly deploredl . . The lesson is an im
pressive one, and is worthy of bold
recital that the public men of the
present and the future may be profit
ted by its teaching. Aside from his
political blunders, he has yet a
iant record as a statesman, financier
and jurist. His mental endowments
were. vast and varied, and his ac
quirements covered a wide range of
study. Hq took to the ,new in poli
tics with rare alacrity, and was never
slow to avow his opinion on all sub
jects brought before the people for

Capt. Tyson reports having reached
north latitude 82.16; reached winter
quarters in September, 1871, in lati

1871, and was buried about hill _A

in ship, when owing .to the heavy
pressure of ice the vessel was thrown
up, and while landing stores, &c.,
the vessel broke ) away from her
moorings with a part of the crew,
and drifted south.
The vessel was_list seen under
steam and canvass, making for-a har
bor on the east side of Northumber

boats Of the two landed on the ice
with Capt. Tyson,
one was burned to
make water for the crew, and the
other is now in Bay Roberts. The
crew lost the vessel on the 15th of
October, 1872, and were picked up
last April by the Tigres s in latitude
53 deg .; 30 min ., having been 197
days on the ice. No lives were lost.
When last on board she made no
more water than' during the past
winter and fall, bat had received
heavy injuries to her stern, causing
her to leak badly. The names of the
crew here are: Capt.: fTyson, Freder

lived on a few ounces daily, and lat

trails,and all for the past two months,

Capt.. Tyson does •. not expect the
Polaris will get clear,before July, if

were fourteen left on board with
plenty of provision. If the vessel be
not fit to come home, they can easily

. The Grant Parish grand jury in
the District court to-day broughtin
a large number of indictments against
the parties concerned in the recent
outrages in that vicinity, and they
will probably be brought to trial
early during the coming week. .
The grand jury-of this parish has
ordered the prosecution of the rioters
who stole the guns last Monday.
Ilsaxraroar the exulted office of
Chief Justice of the Siaprenie Court
of the United States has been filled
by lawyers and statesmen worthy of
the dignity. The Chief of the high:
.est national judicial - tribunal • has
commanded the respect and con
fidence of his. countrymen. No in
road should be made on this salutary
precedent. The advocates of aspi
rgnts - for the succession before the
remains of the late Chief Justice are
laid in the ' tomb, may fairly be ad-
monished to wait awhile. It is not
a recommendation that the aspirants .
are so quick. The Supreme .Couri
has adjourned for a. long, vacation.
The succession is not a subject for.
hurry. It is of much mere moment
to the country that a lawy,er Of ma
ture experience > and approved
acter, at the bar or - on the be ch, or
both, Shall be appointed, th i a new
commission shall be 'made orit with
out 'deliberation. •
Witerrsza may be said of
Torso's social theories, his ideas con ,
cerning the - Indians and the proper
method of treatieg them are worthy
of commendation. Mr. Torun, in
his intercourse lith the a rigines,
seeme&to have acted' as sort of
moderns4usual Ps= "sea he
settled in the Balt Lake nearly
thirty years ago, with only e hun
dred and forty souls, he adopted the
policy of kindness and justice, and
the peace he made with them then,
like that arranged nearly three cen
turies ago at Kensington, has never
been broken. Bacon am is in favor of
the President's policy.
