SHE - QA ETCH DISEASE.
A statement of the facts concerning the
Texas cattle disease, has been made by J.
R. Dodge, Statistician of the Dejaartment of
Agriculture, as the result of an extended
investigation. He makes the following
First—That the disease is communica
~by cattle from Texas; Florida and other
pdrtions of the Gulf Coast.
Second—That such disease is itself un
known in Texas or on the Gulf Coast. ~
• .TAird—That theettle communicating it
are not only.appartly healthy but gener
ally improving in condition.
Fourth,•That while local herds receiving
the infection nearly all' die, they never
communicate to others.
Fifth, That either a considerable increase
in' elevation or, ti distance of two or three
degrees of latitude• from the starting I oint
is necessary to develope the disease into
'activity; and virulency, and a ftirther pro
gress of two degrees of latitude and a few
weeks in time as sufficient to, eliminaterthe
poison from the system. •••
Sixth—That Texas cattle removed to other
Miasmatic sections as the 'Mississippi bot
tom, up the sixteenth parallel, communi
cate no infection to local herds.
Seventh—Medication has thus far been of
no avail. It concludes that the disease
cannot become general and that it can exist
only with the movements of the Texas
cattle, which should be regulated or sup
pressed, and that it does not result from
travel but frem climatic causes.

of September Bth. 1867, near Seymour.
Both prisoners were defended by . the noto

lawyer, of Jackson county, whose boast is,
that no thief whom he defended has ever
been-convicted. Collerani however, in op
position to the advice of his counsel. en
tered a plea of guilty, and was sentenced
by the Court to - Elie years in the penitentiary
and a fine of $5OO. Rommands, under the

Amaient, August 14.—The following
nominations were confirmed by - the Senate
to.day:' 'Associate 'Judges of the Supreme
Court, H. K. McKay; eight years; Hiram
Warren, four year.
Mr. Campbell, colored, moved to recon
eider the action of the Senate' on', the
minority report in the case of the expelled
colored Senators, Bradley and Spake, at
length, and predicted that if Bradley ,
sent forth on the world with this foul
putation on him he would be met by thb
sympathies of ninety-two thousand voters ,
of the down-trodden race.
The cotton blows in this vicinity art, well'
developed, and give promise of a staple of.
superior quality.. ' • • .
The following highly "cooked up" pont;
ico-sensational dispatch was received last ,
night : ,
CoLumniA, August 14.—The veto of Goy.
Scott to certain radical treasures of legis
lation, has created intense feeling among
Ake extreme members, and a break between
the radical and moderate Repubbains.
Intelligence received here indicates the
arming of the negroes in different portions
,of the. State and that:threats' of violence
are made. The leaders publicly say they
have a Captain on--every plantation, and
the whites anticipate serious trouble. The
Governor has failed to make a loan of
1,125,000; and the members of the Legisla
ture are grumbling because the people talk
of refusing to pay taxes.
[NOTE.—TiIe "moderate Republicans"
must mean Democrats. The dispatch reads
very much as if intended for political effect
in the North.—ED.]

of traitors? When he said traitors be did not
wish to offend any one, as he - knew the
great masses of the people. were right if,
th were not misled. The Democrats
asked that the reins of.. government be
placed in their hands once more. They
had controlled the government fora term
Of thirty years, and what was the result?
At the end of that time the Constitution'
was violated and the flag insulted. and it
had not the courage to resent the insult.
When the "Star of tne West" was fired upon,
and James Buchanan was urged Co punish
the traitors, he replied, that them was no'
pcwer in the govern,ment to Prevent seces
sion. Why was there no power?. Because
it was a Democratic retiellioa. -,When Abra

were_ necessary. Men' and money were
both requisite 'to carry' , on- this war

bellin.- What was the result? Abra
ham Lincoln called out seventy-five
thousand men, which were found insuffici
ent. A call for three hundred thousand was
made, and, good heavens, what a cry arose
from their Democratic throats. • Thew said _
the War was unconstitutional) ' that it was
an unholy war, and when our armies were
defeated they chuckled over the defeat. In

set up the cry that it was unconstitutional.
