The political papers have lately hail
much to say in reference to what the
republicans call the new "gerrymand
er' of Ohio. It Is not for uh to say
whether the term Is rightly or wrongl'v
applied in this case, for that would
trench upon the Held of polities, which
wo must not cuter. Hut the term il.-clf
should be explained, for real gerry
mandering W one of the most unjust
and disgraceful of political tricks.
Under our system of allotting repre
scntalives in our Slate legislatures ami
In congress according to population, it
becomes necessary to change the lines
of districts almost as olteu as a new
census is taken. I'nder the census of
IHIU), Iowa, for example, had only sis
representatives in congress; but her
population as revealed by the census
of IH70, entitled her to nine. Of course
it was necessary to redislrict the Stale.
Th s work ('1111 be done fairly or un
faiily. (ienyinanilering, as now gen
erally understood, is doing unfairly.

restricted to a parlicularform of unfair
ness. In 1811, the democrats were in power
in Massachusetts, As tlie legislature
had the duty that year of dividing tlie
Slate into districts', tlie idea came to
some of the representatives to arrange
the Hues so as to make as tunny demo
crat ie ami as few federalist districts as
possible. Accordingly, they formed the
districts without mi' reference to their
geographical position or tlie conven
ience of the people.
One of the districts, in particular, was
in form a long, narrow, crooked one.
starting from the const just north of
Huston, ami after passing into tlie inte
rior, came back to the coast at the
northeastern boundary of the State. A
federalist editor drew' a plan of the dis
trict. Its form was souiethinglikelhat
of a lizard, with head and tail drooping.
Tlie editor added wings and a mouth to
it, and showed it to his friends, saving
that it looked like a salamander.
"Salainander!"eclainicd another in
dignant member of the same partv, "I
should say it looked more like a (i'errv
inander." Tlie governor of Massachusetts, that
year, was Mi Klbridge (ierrv, after
wards vice-president of tlie' Cuitcd
States, ami a very distinguished man.
He probably had nothing to do with the
formation of the district, but. as he
signed the act, he was held responsible
Tlie word Gerrymander was caught
U)i, and soon became the recognized
term for a shapeless district, construct
ed for partisan purposes. It lias since,
as we "have already said, received a'
more general application. Youth's
Jenny Mud made ? 1,000,000 in Amor
lea, and Mr. Gohlschmidt invested it so
successfully that it lias doubled itself.
He is a real nice, ipiict little fellow, Mr.
llaruum says a Jew, though he be
came a Christian when ho married her
and three or four jears younger than
shu. She has a grown-up mhi ami
daughter. Sir Julius Ileuediet, the
composer, Jenny's oh! teacher, says that
tlie daughter would have been as great
a singer as her mot Iter ever was if she
hadirt been rich. As for tho son, lie
knows Jenny is rich. He likes to spend
money, and Jenny likes to have him.
One of the richest women in tlie
world is tlie Princess SouvorolV, of St.
Petersburg, Russia. Her income is
about SsMHio.lHrO. Her father. Count

One of tlie most remarkn'.ilo incidents
going to .show the uftectiou of dtim ani
mals for those who care for them, oc
curred in this city a few days .since.
( )ur readers will remember the drown
ing last Sunday of tlie little si . ear
old bov. Duny." The child had a "little
dog wliich was his constant companion
and plav mate. When the accident oc
curred which resulted in the drowning
of the boy. the dog was with him, and
and bv his strauire conduct and uncasi
ni'ss, he attracted the attention of those
present. While the boy was lying in
the bottom of tlie stream the dog would
run to the child's mother, and then to
ward the place where the boy was sup.
posed to be, and finally plunged in and
wain around over the spot where his
itlle master lay. After the body had
been placed in the collin tlie dog 'mani
fested a strong desire to see the child,
and when the lid of the collin was rais
ed lie licked the dead face, and seemed
to feel intense griff. In a short time
the dog went out to the railroad track
and laid down upon tlie road, as It had
done many times before; but upon the
approach "of the train he laid himself
on the rail, and deliberately allowed tho
train to pass over his body being kill
ed. The whole actions of' tlie dog were
such as to convince one that it was gov
emed bv reasoning powers, and is an-
other illustration of the remarkabh
love or attachment that some animals!
have for their masters. 1 lie mother, ai
the time of tlie drowning, supposed tin
child was at home, and therefore nog
lected to obey the hint given by tin
dog that might navo savcu mo uoy

A Few of the Pelnls Scored.
Among the point scored by the Dem

I. It began by electing a Confederate
over n I'nion soldier for Doorkeeper.
'J. It attempted, through its Commit
tee on Ways and Means, to destroy tho
protectivc'tarill' system and inaugurate
a free trade tarltl'.for the benefit of thu
II. It sought to. degrade and demoral
ize the army, ns u'lud for the Comlutl
nist vote, and a op for the ovConfeil- ,
4. It tried to embarrass and defeat
the resumption of specie payment by
repealing the resumption law. mil
throwing every obstacle in tlie wav of
the financial policy marked out and ad
hered to by the administration.
.'). It plunged into a wanton and
causeless investigation of tho elector:.?
count, the effect of which has been to
keep the country irritated and appre
hensive, to the prejudice of business
interests. To balance this record, what
good has Mr. Randall's Congress done?
What proof of patriotism and capacity
in the management of public affairs has w
the Democratic partv given in Congress
to justify its demand to betiirain placed
in control of the House? The records
of Congress and tho O'Connor Legisla
ture offer valuable suggestions to voters
