TIIE suggestions from "A Mother" are
noted as pertinent, and will be duly heed
ed, as entirely in accord with our own
settled policy. But the greatest vigilance
may be occasionally at fault.
THE English Commons give a de
cisive majority to a new bill legalizing
marriage with. deceased wife's sister.
The measure, will encounter a more se
rious opposition among the Peers, and its
fate seems, at present, donbtinl.
THE English West. Indian port of
Nassau was the depot of the blockade
runners during our own rebellion. The
same port 13 again turned to a semi-pirat
ical profit. in the interest of the Cuban
insurgents, who look thither for all
their implies of war material from
abroad: > It is about time that Nassau
should be declared a genetal nuisance,
and reconstructed accordingly. In the
event of an 'American unpleasantness
with Mr. Bull, this reconstruction will
be one of the first things attended to.
- CLAssuicwricos becomes a highly
popular principle among railway-

__the New York Legislature is now
entreated to lend its benefits to the
Erie:road, that is to say, to Goyim, Fun
and Um. These gentlemen ask for au
thority to classify their directory of fifteen
"by lot or otherwise," So that but one-fifth
shall go out of office in any one year. New
"York Journals expose the movement, and
appeal to the Governor for his veto, in
case the bill should reach him. The pur
poses in view under their application are
too palpable to need explanation.
In inn. Congressional directory for the
third session of the XLth Congress, Sen
ator Sprague gives express direction that
he should be recorded as' " - elected to the
- Senate as a Democrat." In the previomi
publications of the same %directory, he
was set down as a .Repubifcan. He di
rected the alteration of his political status
to be thus announced in December,lB6B.
Democratic prints which. quote his late
spyches will take noticeand govern them
selves accordingly. In the meantime, we
congratulate them upon their new and
promising recruit. . - • '

ThE anthracite cog-miners do not strike
work. 'Discovering that such a -move
ment would result in an enormous profit
to the companies, which have millions of
tons of coal laid up "in stock" for a more
active demand and better prices, the
miners promptly rescinded• their hasty
resolutiont for a general turn-out. They
show - wisdom, while the employers feel
no little disappointment. One company
alone has nearly a half a million' tone
piled np at its Honesdak flocks. It. is
thought others are pursuing the same
policy, holding back the bulk , of their
production from the principal .markets.
If this production be continued, a tem
porary advance of prices, in the markets
which soon promise to be bare, must .
eventually be followed with a still larger
proportionate decline, after the companies
shall reach the limit to their ability to
carry the , increasing stocks.
TEE President will not stiffer himself
to be drawn into the support of either of
the political parties in Virginia. There
can be no doubt that his sympathies are
cordially, with the Radical Republicanism
of the State,—none the less for his equal.;
ly earnest desire that a large class of citi
zens, who were once leading and infinen- -
tial; may again be inspired with an active
interest in its advancement in Material
prosperity. Gen. GRA= entertains, in
common with all -enlightened people ev
erywhere, a deep conviction that the wis
dom evinced by the class alluded to, in
their present hearty acceptance of the
new opinions of the reconstructed Repub
lic, must be fruitful of the best results for
the more vital interests of the entire South..
But neither the President nor the Repub
lican Liases of the people will regard this
as the fitting moment for resigning, to a
class whose probation has not been com
plete, the absolute control of . Virginia af
fairs. Lending the Executive influence
to neither piny, but carefully observing
the tactics of both, our Republican ad
ministration will give a hearty moral sup.
port to the fair trial of an interesting issue.
TICE camas by the Philadelphia Peat,
against the New York agent of the da-'
sociated Press, that the latter was actuat
ed by personal enmity to Mr. Yocum, of
the Tribune, in framing and forwarding
dispatches to the journals, IL- contradicted,
apparently by authority, in the editorial
columns,of the New York Titus, which
None but friendly personal relations
ever existed between Mr. Simonton and
Young iiiitil the detection and exposure
by the former that Mr. Young was be
traying the news of the Association to
the Post;--and it was in retaliation for
this that Mr. Young invented the charge
that Mr. Simonton was "making public
opinion"c through his dispatches, for Mr.
Johnson. But for the detection of Mr.
Young's treachery to the Association,
the latter charge against Mr. Simonton
never would Kaye beeti heard of.
This is very plain language. Other
expressions in the same article refer with
equal directness and pointed inuendo to
the, same "treachery." The Times had
previously forborne any editorial refer
ence to the scandal. Evidently, as the'
affair now stpds, the Philadelphian edi
tion of the Trt.less is indiscreetly doing
more of harm than of good to its friends.
The whole business seems to be bad, and
we wish all parties well out of it. But
the only feature of it which ought to con
cern the cotemporary press is presented
in the extract which we quote. This in
volves directly the interests of all Jour
nalkwhich rely upon that Association for
their distant intelligence, since the integ-
rity of its members and agents stands
squarely impeached, and demands inves

. • , IMMIGRATION.
'ln the quarter ending September 80th,
1868, there came into the United States
to permanently locate 82,895 immigrants.
Of these 49,478 were males and 88,417
females; 18,884 were under fifteen years
of age, 53,184 between fifteen `and forty
and 10,877 beyond forty. The nation
alities represented were as follows: Great
Britain and Ireland, 29,680; Germany,
Austria and Prussia, 88,684; I France,
Spain and Italy, 1,598;, general . Europe,
5,542; countries of Asia, 4,291; countries
of Africa, 57; countries of North Amir
icot2,s77; countries of South America,
40; West Indies and all ofhcr islands,
417; miscellaneous, 9. There were
among them 5,864 farmers; 18,681 labor

The aim:alai report of .the, Ti e
.Eferaid;or the production; 'development
and stock of-petroleum - in - the Fkinnsyl
vania oil regions has just been' published ' ?
and as nival, is very clear, concise and
interesting. During April the produc
tion steadily increased and the daily
average of yield reached 11,067 barrels--
an increase of 1,276 barrels per day over
the March aVerage. This increase was
due more to the continual pumping of old
wells,and to, the torpedoing process, than
to new develOpments. The Tidloute dis
trict fell off fifty barrels, and the districts
along the Allegheny river,' south of
Franklin, one hundred barrels Der day, as
compared with the March production.-
The product of all the other farms and
districts in the region shoWs either no
material change, or else an increase. On
Cherrytree run, in the vicinity of Pithole,
on Upper Cherry run, and on the farms
about the lower part of Oil Creek, the
product increased considerably, while_ on
Church run and in the vicinity of Titus
ville, on the Blood and Story farms, and
in the Bull , run district, the increase was
moderate. In the Pleasantville district
the product was not greatly changed from
that of last month, the daily 'average as
obtained from the shipments by pipes and
teams and the stocks, was 1,700 barrels.
In this district there are lov t r no large
producing wells,nut there are a great
many which yield m four to thirty bar'.
rels per day. There are, however, a few
which produce ove the amount last
Development has been attended during
the month with mt h a i te success, some
good wells being o ned. There are
now three hundred and thirty-three wells
going down and some seventy are about
to be commenced. The demand for ter
ritory at sale and (lease is very good
throughout the enure region. On Sage
Run, near Oil City; a fifty barrel well,
yielding green oil of ilfty, degrees gravity,
was struck, caused conidderable ex
citement and enhanced the value of the
property. The Pleasantville district is
declining and much interest is manifested
in the Cherry Tree Itun locality.
The stock of Petrikeum increased du
ring the month, and 4:ori the Ist of May
the total in all hands was 805,970 barrels
of forty-three gallons. This stock in
cluded the amounts in iron tankage and

PROGRESS IN KENTUCKY.
A recent event already has remarkable
resulis in the leading Democratic State of
the itepublic. A nipw doctrine startles
her ninety thousand Democratic major
ity, and her own leading Democratic or
gan, I the Louisville Courier-Journal,

of race are boldly assailed, a provision
peculiar to her laws from the first day

a cardinal point in the Democratic faith
'everywhere is to be expunged from the
Kentucky creed, if the most influential
Democratic journal of the State, or in

mation to which it now stands frankly
committed. This is real progress—and it

which excludes black testimony from her

may be white. She had some show' of
excuse for this restriction, so long as she
legalized the enslavement of the one race
for the other—an excuse which never ap

that institution has gone down into the

leaving to Kentucky no traces, except in

That State has afforded too many accent
plished and renowned lawyers, as well as
forensic orators, to the American pro
fession, to do herself credit by upholding
for one 'needless day the mean -and - narrow
restrictions upon the law of evidence—to
say nothing of the tmstatesmanMke fol—
ly which attempts to withstand the
march of an enlightened civilization.
Cur: bona? That is the question upon
which the Louisville paper has spoken.
The Courier-journal opens a sudden and
crushing fire' upon thia exclusion of col
ored testimony from their Courts,7pre
senting such an array of arguments,
drawn from law, from philosophy; from
politics, from expediency under the pres
ent situation, as well also as from human
ity, always progressive, backward if not
forward, in the direction of enlighten
ment, or of barbarism,--that the iKen
tucklan Democracy must succumb to the
pressure of the truth, unless they be even
more blind or more mad than thelz:bitter
est opponents accuse them for. j
We do not care to disparage tie mo
.of our able coteniporary at Louis
ville, by attributing its movement to that
suggestion of politic expediency Which
yields gracefully to necessity, under the
Federal protection of civil rights equally
for all men. Were that alone its motive,
the Courier-Journai is, even !then,
wiser than very many of the Democratic
generation, in more than one State out
side of Kentucky. It should have credit,
even in that 'view, for a political ,saga
city Which is a novelty in its: own
State of late. But we would rather
choose to regard that newspaper as tak-
ing by chance the high ground on which
it professes to stand—the ground
of public morality, of reaawk
and of sound law. It has under
taken a great work—tie war shattered
slavery, but the new birth of opinions
in harmony with the last eight - years'
events, is at this moment going on all
over the South, and the one leading influ
ential journal of Democratic Kentucky
watches and waits and labors for an' hen;
arable deliverance. We must admire the
wisdom, as we honor the courage - which
knows the line of an enlightened public
duty, and dares to follow it, in the , teeth
of every prejudice both of Party and of
race. Success may be the work of years,
or of a generation to ceme, but when it
comes, it will be largely due to the efforts

THE REASON WHY •
Dr. Keyser's Blood Searcher is the. beat. It is.
computed that a man's systeti undergoes three
timesa Tear, that Is every four months, a radical
and thorough change, that is, that at the end of,
that time nothing remains In the system of the
material of which it was composed before that.
time. The eliminating' organs carry: opt tbe
worn.out and need. up material. and new Matter
is made to take its place ind carry on the work
ings of the human ordinism. The - costof fon;
Months treatment in this way would not at the
outside be more than ten dollars, and frequently
the functions of Iffetusie an activity and vigor
I mparted sufficient to renew them by the use of
one bottle, costly g only one dollar. , Ito organ of
the body but *ill be beneflited by such a process.
The liver; the stomach, the kidneys, the skin,
the lungs, , are all. as it were, made over again
by the impetus given to the stomact Mid diges
tive systemold and prostrated peutile Whose
systems bad begun to languish and decays have
been restored by DR. KEYSER'S BLOOD
SEARCHER to' youthful health, and vigor.
Especially is this 411611h:rue suitable at this
ssason of the year, " when the dormant
powers of life, lice all the rest 'of nature are
emerging from the chilling add torpid state
usual to the cold and wintry months. • We
know Very Null that all advertised medicines are
apt to be retirded as useless and nugatory, but
with' DR; RYSER'S BLOOD %BEARCEIEIt we
feel perfectly secure in the promise that It must
do good. Country merchants and those who sup
ply others with needful things for their wants
cannot confer a greater service than to keep'S
few bottles of tab valuable medicine on their
shelves to supply their want;. Dr. Keyser will
take back every half dozen that remains unsold.
It at the same time affords the merckant • a .
good_ profit, and to those who need it, it is of
more value than silver and gold, for what can be
of more value to m a n than a medicine which car.
riea health and life to the suffering invalid? •
We earnestly entreat all who reed this to try
one bottle ofDr. Keyeer's Blood Searcher iftheir
need such a medicine, and we will guarantee set.
