ing was among the resolutions adopted
on the transportation question :
Resolrcd , That we are in favor of
giving to railroad companies the larg
est possible terminal and other privil
eges consistent with the public inter
est , but we deprecate the indiscrimin
ate legislation in their interest such as
has prevailed in the past upon the
plea that these franchises were for
"public use and benefit , " and after

private bodies which owe no duties to
the public , and are entirely free from
Ir the Californians ratify their new
constitution on the Jth of May , the
wholesale bribery of le islators and
public officers by the distribution of
railroad passes will bo pretty effectu
ally stopped , so far as California is
concerned. The acceptance of such
"common courtesies , " as the Omaha
Jferald was pleased to call them , by
any public officer will work a forfeit
ure of his office. With such a clause
in the constitution of Nebraska there
would have-been no "Friday till Tues
day adjournments" by the late legisla
ture every week , and there would
hive been no difficulty in passing those
Omaha bridge resolutions.
THE Louisville Courier-Journal
quotes "the recent burning of two
white men at the stake in Nebraska"
a ) a set-off against the Chisolm mas-
sicro. There is this difference : The
Nebraska fiends were arrested and are
now ou trial. The Mississippi murder-
era have never been tried , and never
will be. In Nebraska public senti
ment at oucfl cried out against the
outrage and made its influence felt.
In Mississippi , public sentiment ap
proved the outrage and shielded the
murderers. [ Inter-Ocean.
Another fact worth mentioning ia that
the barbariana who perpetrated the Ne
braska outrage hailed from Texaa and
fie solid South. The testimony elicited
in the murder trial shows the story of
the burning to have been grossly ex-
aggeratcil Unlike the Chisholm mas
sacre , which was an'unprovoked , cold
blooded assassination of a respectable
law-abiding'citizen in the presence of
his family , the victims of the Nebraska
massacre were charged with resisting
an officer and cattle stealing. It was
a cowardly murder all the same , and
Nebraska justice has not been vainly
invoked to vindicate the laws.
THE lower house of the Illinois Leg

GKN. RICHARD TAYLOB , familiarly
known as Dick Taylor , who died in
Slew York city Saturday , was the son
of "Rough and Ready , " Zachary
Taylor , twelfth President of the
United States. The distinguished
Americans who comprised the funeral
cortege , including Hamilton Fish ,
Win. H. Evarts , and Senator Bayard ,
were doubtless paying homage
to the memory of the patri
otic father in honoring the recre
ant son. Dick Taylor , who could not
have been justly responsible for
the treason of his brother-in-law ,
Jeff Davis , should , of all other men ,
have been the last to join the rebel
lion , instead of being among the first
and most active of its participants.

and served through the War , seeing
much service , and retiring with the
rank of Lieutenant-General ; He was

in turn defeated at Pleasant Hill , Sep
tember 10,18C4. He surrendered to
Gen. Canby May4 , 18C5.
Gen. Taylor had been engaged in
writing a writing a volume of war rem-
iniscenses under the title of "Destruc

CrxciNNATi is intensely agitated
over the discovery that the Mayor
elect and several of the other newly
elected officials are ineligible for want
of naturalization papers. The agita
tion has created a panic among a cer
tain class of people who have been vo
ting illegally for years , and a perfect
stampede has taken place upon the
Probate Court by these men to get
their final papers of citizenship.
Judge Hoadley has been retained by
prominent Democrats to contest Ja

Common Council is Democratic , and

day or month of 1835 he was born , but
feels assured that he was seventeen
years of age when he left Hamburg
for America in February , 1852. Mur

Which Is Correct.
Baltimore Gazette ( Dem. ) .
A gentleman who called at Gram-
ercy Park the other day found Mr.
Tilden in a wretched condition. He
was confined to bed and could only
speak in a low whisper. His right
side is paralyzed , he has lost the use
of his left eye and is unable to take
any solid food whatever. P. S. The
gentleman lied. Mr. Tilden was never
better in his life. .jDn. Saturday last
he sawed and split two cords of wood
before breakfast , without turning a
hair , and in the afternoon rode fifteen
miles on his hard-trotting hoase.
FKOM A PROHIBITION STANDPOINT ANY
THING 1O BEAT GOV. GEAR.
The outgivings of local temperance
organizations throughout the State in
dicate with decided particularity that
Mr. A. P. Hewett , Grand Worthy
Templar of Iowa , will be the candi
date of the temperance party for Gov
ernor. Mr. Hewett is an out-and-out
prohibitionist , and the head-center of
the temperance party. Hia antece
dents are Republican and his private
lite stainless. A compromise is on the
tapis whereby it is proposed to nom
inate Hon. Wm Larabee , of Fayette ,
for Governor , and Frank T. Campbell ,
of Jasper , for Lieutenant-Goyernor , in
order to harmonize the Republican
party. Senator Larabee has served
for years in the Iowa State Senate , is
a man of large fortune and good repu
tation , and his nomination for Gover
nor would at once heal the rents in
the Republican party caused by the
temperance question. FrankT. Camp
bell is the president Lioutenaut-Gov-
ernor of Iowa , and ran ahead of Gear
10,000 votes. Ho ia a strong man , so
that the ticket of Larabee and Camp
bell is unexceptionable. It is the
ticket that bids fair to sweep the State.f9

A Democratic Opinion Worth Heed
New York Tribune.
Ex-Senator Barnum , of Connecti
cut , the silent , cool-headed , calculat
ing politician , who has never been
suspected of a single rash or ardent
sentiment upon any subject , declares
that the extra session of Congress and
the debate upon the army bill have
cost them Democratic party " 1,000-
000 votes ! " If an amateur had made
such an assertion , it would have at
tracted little attention , in spite of the
fact that it is clear to men of both
parties how greatly the Demo
crats have damaged themselves. But
coming from Mr. Barnum , the re
mark is an unexpected revelation of
Democratic consciousness of the posi
tion of the party. He is not the man
to make loose generalizations about
voteSjSeeiug that ho knows the market
value of a single vote , of a hundred
votes , of a thousand votes , perhaps
better than any other man in the
Union. When he says that the Dem
ocracy have lost 1,000,000 votes , the
party knowing his practical tempera
ment and Iiis uiiomnu commercial
sagacity in all matters relating to the
ballot , may well pause and think seri-
ouslv of its future.
The Chinese Come to Stay.
New York Letter to Philadelphia Ledger.
The naturalization of Chinamen in
our city courts is coming to be so com
mon now as to scarcely excite remark.
The newest case is that of Mr. Charles
Wing , who appeared before Judge
Lawrence , in the Common Pleas , re
cently , and , after answering the usual
questions and taking the customary
oath , was admitted to the rights and
privileges of American citizenship.
The ceremony was witnessed by but
few persons. Mr. Wing's witness was
one of hia own countrymen , Mr Wong
Lee , who was himself naturalized not
long since. Both of these gentlemen
will vote at the next election , and , as
things are going , it would not be sur
prising if Chinamen were running , era
long , as candidates for the board of
aldermen or the State legislature.
"Superiority" of the Southern Race.
Portsmouth ( V- ) Times , ( Pern ) .
The real reason of this grand and
amazing upheaval of affairs which has
resulted in placing the Southern people
ple in triumph in the chief places of
the National Government is due to the
grand superiority of the Southern
race. Never were such people seen
under the sun ; so grand , so steadfast ' ,
so faithful and true , so full o'f sublime
patience , so quiet under unmerited op
pressions , so generous , so brave , so
full of all fortitude , temperate wis-
dom'and ' exquisite knowledge how to
act. All taeso qualities , combined
with that wonderful recuperative fac
ulty which is so eminently a Southern
characteristic , have produced their
natural result , so that now the prece
dence and power of the South in Con
gress is like any other established fact.
It only remains for our people to show
themselves as truly great in the time
of their triumph as they have been in
the dark hours of their most sad and
bitter experience. Success is the true
touchstone of merit , and we do not
doubt onr people will show themselves
fully competent to maintain and exalt
the honor" which has with so much
justness been laid upon them.

THE ARRIVAL OF PERRY FEABERSIEYEE
JS W ST KANS S.
Kansas City Times , April 12.
It is generally presumed that all are
familiar with the $1,500 bet between
Feabenneyer and Potter that both
parties start at the same time from
San Francisco , CaL , and wheel a bar
row with 110 pounds weight , and who
ever reached New York first was to
take the money. Yesterday Feaber-
meyer arrived in West Kansas , having
thus far , accomplised his journey.
Some four months ago they started ,
Feabermeyer taking the lead and hold
ing it till the present time. He gave
a graphic description of his suffer
ings while crossing the Rocky
Mountains , stating the snow was
at times two to three feet deep ,
and at one time he was two days with
out eating. It was" in crossing these
mountains that he gained on his oppo
nent and soon left Potter behind.
Feabermeyer left Greeley on the 29th ,
arriving here yesterday morning. He
reported Potter at Kit Carson on Tues
day , and was now 410 miles ahead of
him. During his trip he met with a
severe accident at Russell , falling off a
railway bridge on the line of the Kan
sas Pacific Railway , injuring himself
severely and breaking his wheel
barrow to atoms. Outside of this
he has not had a great many
mishaps. He is a , short muscular
German , with a frame of iron and a
determined manner and look. The
barrow he wheels is made of seasoned
hickory , very light , with large wheels ,
and is painted slate color. He stop
ped for _ a short time at the Glenn
House , in West Kansas , yesterday ,
and was bored to death with questions ,
which he answered good-naturedly.
He will leave for St Louis this moru-
ing accompanied by a friend and um
pire. Tho-greatest number of miles
ever made in one day was 41 , fand the
smallest 5. He did not seem the least
fatigued , and stated he was in excel
Guilty Then , but Innocent Now.
Detroit Post , ( Rep. )
While in another article wo quote
from the report of truthful and bold
Ben Wade , and from the testimony of
eye-witnesses , to show that they knew
that Gen. Chalmers was at Fort Pil
low , and was guilty there of the most
infamous and damnable atrocities , it
must be understood that we make no
charges. Gen. Chalmers may have
been guilty he doubtless was guilty
at that timeand , he remained guilty
for several years after the close of the
war ; but he may be may be entirely
innocent now ! If a court of review
should be ordered by the President to
ihvestigate the Fort Pillow massacre ,
it might conclude that there was.
not any Fort Pillow massacre ;
besides , that Gen. Chalmers" conduct
at the massscro was lavdably benevo
lent and'pr.iiseworthily charitableand ;
recommend him as a proper subject
for a Generalship and a pension in the
A "Bloody Shirt" and "Dirty Linen
Augusta ( Ga ) JConsluutionaHst ( Dem. )
As matters are shaping themselves
it appears highly probable that the
contest for the Presidency next year
we be between Tilden and Grant. A
campaign with Tildeu for the standard
bearer on the one hand and Grant on
the otherwould be one of the liveliest
and most bitter in the history of the
nation. All the battles of the war
would bo fought over again , and the
bloody shirt would be freshly ensan-
sanguined for the fray. There would ,
too , be such a washing of the dirty
linen of both parties as was never seen
