There were at that date six cases

ed a aew case, the foarth since the

disease is spreading rapidly, and if

Omaha, but of course Colombus
might also be attacked on the Lin

The Journal of last, Friday days :
"The most wonderful example of
growth ever coming under par notice
is the swelling of smallpox rumor.
It is religiously believed in many
localities that there are from ten to
twenty-five cases of smallpox cases
in Lincoln, while the fact' is there is
but one. Twenty-eight persons are
known to have been exposed to the
infection from that case, and it may
not be unreasonable to expect that
in some of those cases it will result
in the disease ; but up to this writing
there is but the one original case.
The duty of the boor is vaccination,
and 0& no account should it be omit
ted. In the little town of Clarinda,
Iowa, new cases are developing ,at
the rate of twelve to fifteen per day,
according to rnmor, but it is proba
bly exaggerated." J -
'i"We believe it due to onr readers
that they should have the most accu
rate information attainable of the
appearance and 'progress of this
dreaded disease, especially as it
seems to be the "most fatal smallpox
epidemic that has appeared in Amer
ica within the memory of this gen
eration, the proportion of deaths,
notwithstanding vaccination, being
much greater than ever before."
Those of our citizens who have not
already done so should be vaccinated
at once, as this has proved to be the
successful method of fighting the

Charles Berridge, a relative of T.
H. Sauaders of this city, was recent
ly' blbwn to atoms while handling
glycerine. 'We give a brief extract
from a letter descriptive of the affair.
"He went oat in the morning to shoot
two wells ; he had shot one, and had
put 46 quarts of glycerine (equal to
about 700 pounds of powder) in the
necdnd, aad was retarning with a
lean with two quarts that was left, to
pat latv the aaagastae. He' tied his
horses, took the caa and started for
the magazine. It was a bitter cold
day; and either his hand was nnmb,
or he slipped and stumbled and fell
on' the can, and it exploded. The
largest piece they could find of him
was the tbnmb and three fingers of
oae band, in which was clutched the
keys of the magazine, but the keys
were goad for nothing, as they were
blown tb pieces. They ' found a
piece of his foot, hip and scalp and a
few bits of flesh. All they could
find of him did not weigh over 20
pounds; the horses did not try to
get away, but stood there trembling
with fright. They were about 15
feet from him and were blown fnll
of sand, gravel, and the tin of the
can ; they were not dead, but bad to
be killed in the morning. The re
port was heard five miles off, and at
Richburg (Pa.,) one mile away, it
seemed as though the earth shook
under their feet. There was snow
on the ground, but not a drop of
blood coold be found. There was a
hole made in the ground (although
It was frozen two and a half feet
deep), of the size of a floor barrel.
He. had just been paid off, and had
about 300 in his pocket. Nothing
conld be found, except an account
book and fonr letters that were in

A Friday's dispatch sUted that his
counsel think of raising the issue of
jurisdiction, claiming' thathe should

would be to bring the question be

for a writ of habeas corpus.
Col. Corkhill says be has looked

ates the opinion thatGuiteau will
doubtless be banged in July.
On the 27th, counsel for the de

he will file affidavits showing that

-The fifth annual encampment was
held at Lincoln last. week. They

The delegates had what, they called
a rattling good time.
Among the business transacted
was the. appointment of the next
annual re-union, a subject in which
Columbus was somewhat interested.

for the re-onion were about as fol

120 cords of wood, 50 tons of hay,
freight charges, etc., on tents and
pavilion ; the immediate payment of
$700 indebtedness of the encamp

grounds with the buildings, besides
1080 acres of other land, with plenty
of water, shade, etc. Seward $2200

by 'a grandson of John C. Calhoun
concerning the ability of the negro,
when free, to take care of himself.
Bv (he way, we don't see so much
lately of Dr'.Miller's subject-race
theory as 'formerly. But here' is
what Mr. Calhoun has to say : "If
my grandfather and associates had
known as much about the negro as
I knowr.and could have the. same
faith in higycapacity for progress
which I have attained from my own
experience, there would have' been
neither slavery nor war."

The most remarkable trial known
to our history as a government clos
ed with the verdict of the jury on
Wednesday of last wei'k.: Mr. Por
ter finished lit s argument against the
accused closing with these words :
"The assassia.who shot Garfield
knew that, against the law, he was
It is stated that the senate judi
ciary committee agreed last week on
a bill designed to suppress polyga
my. Its main features do away with
the present requirement for proof of
polygamic marriages by providing
that the fact of living in polygamous
relations shall be sufllcient evidence
for conviction, and that ia prosecu
tion for bigamy any person drawn
as a juryman may be challenged on
the ground that he practices or be
lieves in polygamy as a religions
right. Other provisioas of the bill
debar polygamlsts from voting, serv
ing on juries, or holding office. We
doubt whether the strong provisions
of this bill will reach the seat of the
evil of polygamy, aad the practice
will continue side by aide with the
execution of the law. What will
Mormon polygamists care about
voting, serviag on jories aad holding
office, while they are pennitted to
practice i polygamy! Still, if stria-,
gently enforced, sneh a law would,
be the beginning of the cad' of the
breaking with bloody hands into the
house of life.' He did'not know that
over his grave, if grave he is to have,
wilh be written by mankind in dark
letters : 'The grave of a coward, an
ingrate,a swindler and assassin The
uotoriety which . he has sought is to
be found in that expression. He did
not know what we do; that even
though by a lingering death the
President did yield up his life, the
hand that aimed that pistol at his
life gave him glorious renown. At
the same time, if I may be at liberty,
to borrow the illustration from At
torney General Brewster on the
occasion to which I referred toj the
dedication of the monument of Alex
ander Hamiltoa, in some respects
akin to this in its. reminder, then
the assassin pointed the weapon at
the life of the patriot, and thongh he
did not know it, he wrote the name
of James A. Garfield,, in characters
of living light upon the firmament,
there to endure as radiant as if every
letter was traced in living stars."
At 3:15 Judge Cox delivered his
charge to the jury, which was brief
and pointed, and the jury retired' at
4:40. Two secret ballots were ta
ken ; on the first ballot eleven' were
for conviction as charged, and one
was blank. A second ballot result
ed in a unanimous verdict of
"guilty as charged in the indict
It seems that there was at no time
any real question in the minds of
the jury as to the result. Guiteau
had hoped there was one man who
might waver on the ground of in
sanity at the the time the deed was
committed, but his hope was vain.
It is pretty generally believed now
that among the strongest elements
againts the theory of Guiteau's
counsel was the conduct of the pris
oner himself during the trial.
The verdict meets with almost
universal approval, which will
doubtless ripen into acclamation
when it is known for a certainty
that the vile and cowardly assassin
has paid the penalty of his crime by
the forfeit of his miserable earthly
existence upon the gallows.

The Omaha Herald is the only
newspaper in the west that we are
aware of, that believes Guiteau
should not be hanged. It says that
"a great government and people
who, in the langaage of Gen. Butler,
'hung an innocent woman with a
hood over her face,' on the' false
charge that she was in the conspira
cy with Booth who killed oae presi
dent of the United States, will now
enjoyr the added disgrace of hanging
a lunatic for'kllliag another." The
Herald doesn't believe ia capital
punishment, or, as it styles it, "mur
dering saaej.nen according to law
Decease they murder other men iu
violation of law." If more men be
lieved that wilful murder wonld be
invariably paaisbed by hanging,
there wonld be fewer murders.
When the verdict of the jury in
the Guiteau case was announced - to
the G. A. R. boys night before 'last
a committee was engaged in raising
a few scads for some purpose best
known to the boys. The amount
raised was in excess of what was
wanted by several dollars, and the'
chairman of the committee asked
what should be done with the sur
plus, when an old veteran arose to
his feet and moved that the amount
should be forwarded to the U. S.
marshal at Washington with in
structions that it should be used in
purchasing a steel rope with which
to hang Guiteau. The motion was
carried amidst great applause.
Ik a case of murder recently tried
in New Jersey, where the plea was
irresistable impulse the judge charg
ed 1hejury that it was settled law in
New Jersey that if the accused had
sufficient mind to distinguish be
tween right and wrong and could
control- hie conduct under ordinary
circumstances, the jury, .could not

pulse.' Whereupon the jury brought

worse than it really is, and thus
greater harm would be done to bus
