The Texan Favorite. The most singular effect of the late action , of the Texas legislature in substituting an in vitation to Jeff Davis to visit the State in place of one offering its hospitality to Grant, is tlic disclosure of the fact that nobody cares. The complete apathy with which the entire country lias treated this silly exhibition of Confederate pigheadedness and spite is a pretty exact measure of the loss of considers. t:on and influence which the South has suf fered in consequence of the failure of its re volt and the resulting industrial, social and politic"'.! prostration. That part of the coun try up j oil,ted by slavery and treason has so outgrown and overtopped the enervated South, that the recurrence of the old symp tom: cf C " cbivahy, however violent, has ceased to be even a good item of news, and the simultaneous happening of a rail road disaster or of a first rate de falcation pushes it iguominiously into com plete oblivion. Had the Memphis insurance .gent, who has now fallen into such obscuri tythat few Northern people any longer take tke*rouble to hate him,accepted the invitation of hi Texan friends, and had the principal enterainment offered him been the burning of God Grant in effigy, the interest excited in the Nu th would have been only a little more lively than at present. Its chief expulsion would have been, “poor Texas!’’ “gx>r South! Will its people never learn wisdom? Will ignorance and disloyalty "orever condemn a part of our countrymen to their present condition of moral and financial stagnation? Must this dark spot on the bap always remain ?” The 4- Tcnn ’MawIVi li.n nAna fiwmnnl mTiiln tlvn O--»---~ D-- - South has stood stil. or gone back, has in creased its wealth ant sharpened its intelli gence by constantly improved education, and extended its power and influence *1 all di rections, while tbe sulky Confederates have impoverished themselves, blunted thdr wits and made themselves contemptible by rher ishing Bourbon-wise their obsolete traditons and refusing to adopt education and progress as the ^foundation of a new civilization Such a North can afford to be magnanimous toward such a South, especially since the rel ative importance of the latter is constantly declining, and its power for active mischief is no longer regarded as worthy to excite ap prehension. But once, and not a great many years ago, what a fever of consterna tion this Texan news,or its ante-bellum equiv alent, would have excited in the North! What visions of hordes of long-haired, mys terious rangers issuing from the wilds of the Lone Star State to destroy the Union and lay waste the North, would hare disturbed the peace of timid householders! Such an act oi ostentatious disloyalty would have sent an electric thrill through the entire South, and while in that section of the country the fire eaters were maddened by the treasonable orations of the Wigfalls and Yanceys, and were meeting daily to drill, in the North the com promisers would have brought forward theii compromises, and the pacificators would have come forward with their soothing prescrip tions. Tbe doughface would have come to the front, and the abolitionist would have been the object of general public detestation. But to-day there are only a few people, who remember to have seen in the last week’s papers an obscure paragraph stating that ar old gentlemen living in Memphis, who once led his Southern neighbors in a crazy enter prise that wholly failed, who ran away from the consequences of his crime in his wife’s clothes, and who since his retirement to pri vate life has supplemented his disloyalty tc the Republic by public disloyalty to the wife whose loan of her attire almost enabled hitr to escape the Union troops—that this bad ole gentlemen is regarded by the law-makers ol Texas as a fitter guest than the Chief Magis trate of the country on whose public and pri vate loyalty there is no spot I And those who re member the paragraph do not find themselves moved to execration, but to pity. They ex claim, “Such a State needs emigration, and, above all, more schools.” Nearly ail the measures lately considered in Congress for giving national aid to education have recog nized the claims of the South to especial con sideration, as is most just. We can imagine no more profitable investment of public mon ey than in purchasing enlightenment and consequent happiness and prosperity for the South. It will matter relatively little to the country at large when Texas prefers Grant tc Jeff. Davis, but it will be of tbe Uighe st con c;m to Texas. UsDEit tbe policy of the Dominion Govern ment none of the present provincial gover nors will be reappointed. By this seemingly arbitrary role New Brunswick will be depriv ed of the services of Gov. Wilmot who has displayed rare qualifications for the po sition. He has been at the head of all those gieat reforms that have caused that Provinee to make so great progress the past few years, chief among which is the recent law estab lishing and providing for the maintenance of free schools. On several occasions Gov, Wil mot has addressed our people, and particular ly on the occasion of the opening of the North American & European Railway where he gave eloquent utterance to the most pro gressive ideas and particularly enforced the imnooeifn rtf* niihl!/' PiliiOntinn at + Vrnvnrmon of the State. Strange as it may seem, there are many of the Dominion politicians who have no sympathy with such a Yankee measure. The editor of the Argus is evidently a recluse, else he would not be so astonished at our statement that there are ma«y people who approve and even applaud the murder of the miserable wretch Cullen by a t110^ >n Chapman plantation, and denounce U3 al slanderers. If he mingle with peopls and made any use of his he would know that a very large ramher of respectable peo ple, strange as ~ ,uay seem, approve the act, not because -*ie man was not sure of punish ment bu<DCCause tljey aPProye of immedi ate Te**^1100, & read his exchanges he ^,k:d know that the North Star, published in Caribou, Aroostook County, by an Ortho dox minister, says that the greater part of people there expressed their approval of the act, and that he as good as defends it him self. Will this suffice ? Ax article in the Loudon Times shows by reference to the agricultural returns from va rious parts of the island, that the acreage of land devoted to the cultivation of cereals is much less than last year, and that the bad condition of the ground from excessive rain threatens a short ctop. The writer antici pates that more than half the grain needed lor English consumption must come from foreign sources, which means that there will be an unusual call upon the United Stales for breadstuffs and in consequence, the present prices will be maintained if not greatly in creased. Just at this season this hint may be of importance to Maine farmers. Tbe Bangos Whig in bringing forward the name of Judge Kent for Governor says that it does so without the knowledge of that gentleman and because it is well known that lie possesses the requisites for a high minded and efficient Chief Magistrate of the State. The W hig very properly remarks that the people are getting tired of having gentlemen press themselves upon the party for a nomin ation, and hopes that a gentleman will he elected whom the office seeks and not he the office. The latter suggestion is good. T T^^hTdoct^reJawyers and courts f Vow York have sagely declared George of;Ne.v rp.^in to be a sane man. Courts Francis Iiam w . sometimes commit persons for contempt; re versing the operation, why shouldn't the peo ple committhis New York crowd to jail for casting such premeditated contempt upon respectable sanity by declaring that George Francis Train belongs to it? In view of the fearful I033 of life conse quent upon the fall of the bridge at Dixon, 111., last Sunday, the Hartford Courant cau tious all those having bridges iu their charge to carefully examine them at this season of the year. ■ The municipal elections in North Carolina show decided Republican gains throughout the State and indicate a healthy party organ ization. The gain in Raleigh of 500 is an in stance of the gratifying result in general. Death of Chief Justice Chase. Chief Justice Chase died in New York city, at the residence of his daughter, Mrs. Hoyt, of apoplexy, at ten o’clock Wednesday morning, with which he was attacked Tuesday morning. Salmon Portland Chase was horn in Cornish, N. H„ January 13th, 1808, being in his sixty sixth year at tho time of his death. His father died when he was at the age of ten or twelve years, leaving him to rely up>n his own re sources largely. Soon after, his uncle, tho first Bishop of Ohio, invited young Chase to live with him, where he was assistant in a school and prepared for college. In 1824 he entered the Junior class of Dartmouth and graduated in 1820, At that time his uncle Dudley Chase was United States Senator from Vermont, and by his advice Salmon went to Washington where he taught a select school for some time and subsequently studied law in the office of William Wirt, then Attorney General under John Quincy Adams. He was admitted to the bar in Washington and returned to Ohio in about 1840, and began the practice of his pro fession. He first came into notice by arrang ing and writing the statutes of Ohio, which were in a confused condition. This work was so well done that it brought him into notice and he acquired a good praotice. In 1837 he defended James G. Birney before tho Supremo Court of Ohio, who was prosecuted under the State law for harboring a slave. Mr. Chase as serted the doctrine that slavery is local, and dependent upon State law for existence and continuance, and insisted that tho person al leged to have been harbored, having been brought within the territorial limits of Ohio by the individual claiming her as master, was thenceforth, in fact and by right, free. In 1846 he was associated with the Hon. W. H, Seward as defendant’s counsel in tho case of Wm. Zandt before tbe Supremo Court of the United States. The case excited much interest and in a speech which attracted marked at tention, Mr. Chase argued more elaborately tho principles which he had advanced in former cases. It is evident that a man holding such opin ions as these was destined to a marked political career in tho then state of American parties. He cast his first Presidential vote for his friend William Wirt, through personal predilections tlone. Prior to 1841, however he had taken bit little part in politics. He had voted some tines with the Democrats, but more commonly witi the Whigs, who, in tho North, seemed to him aore favorable to anti slavery views than their opponents. He supported Gen. Harrison in 1840, but tho tone of l.is inaugural address, and moro Vbo course of the Tyler administration, convincci him that no effective resistance to the en croachments of slavery was to bo expected from any party with a slaveholding and pro slavery wing modifying, if not controling, its actions; and in 1841 he united in a call for a convention of the opponents of slavery and slavery extension, which assembled at Colum bus in December of that year. This convention organized tho liberty party of Ohio, nominated a candidate for Governor and issued an address to tho people defining its principles and purposes In 1843 a‘National Liberty Convention as sembled at Buffalo, in which Mr. Chase was a prominent member, and where he opposed the resolution to practically nullify the third clause of the Constitution where it referred to a fugi tive slave. In 1844 he voted for James G. Bir ney, the nominee of the Liberty party, bring ing down upon himself the great wrath of the Whigs for so doing. At this time he became a more active member of the Democratic party retaining still his deep and immovable antipa thy to slavery. As a Democrat he took sides with the party in favor of the Sub-Treasury, which, with “hard money” ideas, constituted tlje important features of Democratic policy ijj those days. He only differed with the party on tho question of extending slavery. He was opposed to the introduction of tho system into the new Territories. He was not urgently ex acting for its abolition. In short he was an abolitionist, but believed that the States were protected from Congressional abolition. Mr. Chase warmly endorsed the organization of tho Free Soil party in 1S48 and supported the nom ination of Van Buren and Adams. At the Convention m Buffalo he said: “We have come up from tho banks of the Ohio and the Mississippi, the shores of the Lakes and the Atlantic,where is forever sound ing the mighty anthem of freedom. And why have we come here? To lay the foundation of a great and enduring Democratic party—a. party which shall recognize the rights of man,as they are recognized by tho clear vision of Almighty God.” February 22, 1849, Mr. Chase was elected United States Senator by the Democrat* and free soil members of the Ohio Legislature, the former party at that time being decidedly op posed to slavery. Ho separated from them in 1852, on the nomination of Mr. Pierce for the Presidency by the Democratic party, and while a Senator opposed the compromise bill, and in 1854 wrote a strong appeal to the peoplpagainst the Kansas-Nebraska bill, and opposed it by every means in his power, and offered an amend ment leaving it optional with the People of the territory whether slavery shoidl exist in it or not. This amendment was defeated, hut still Mr. Chase persisted in his a>position to slavery bUb UtUCi UoClUl MVV.UW.V- UUJ/J/UI kVU K/J him was the bill for tie establishment of the Pacific Kailroad, rriioh he lived to see an ac complished fact He was elected Governor of Ohio in 1855, i«Jd two years later supported Fre mont, the republican candidate for the Presi dency, fgainst Buchanan. At the Peace Con feren/C of 1861 ho proposed the indemnification of planters for escaped slaves. On the forma ton of President Lincoln’s first Cabinet in March, 1861, he was appointed Secretary of the Treasury, and in January, 1862, instituted his financial system of issuing “greenbacks” and making United States notes legal tender. After more than three years’ arduous service he re signed his position as Secretary of the Treasu ry; and in 1864 succeeded Chief Justice Taney on the Supreme Bench. He was a candidate for the Republican nomi nation against Mr. Lincoln in 1864, and had a powerful combination in his behalf, but it event ually fell through and Mr. Lincoln was re-nom jnated. Judge Chase did not appreciate Mr. Lincoln, and it is said that he greatly embar rased him at times. It will always be a stain upon the reputation of the great man that he resigned his position as Secretary of the Treas ury in the dark days of June, 1864. Thousands will remember the panic the act created, and its temporarily disastrous effects upon the nation al finances and the discouragement to the coun try at large. As the Chief Justice of the Unit ed States, he virtually declared that the great financial measure originated by him was uncon stitutional except as a war measure. In 1868, he was the candidate of a very re spectable portion of the Republican party for the Presidency, and the usual machinery was employed to bring him before the people, but the tide bad sot for Gen. Grant, so that all effort was useless. At this period in the life of this great pion eer of free soil and statesman, be seems to have been entirely consumed as other great men have been, with an inordinate desire to he President. His former friends and the great party to which he belonged, were not a little surprised when a letter was published, which was a virtual an nouncement of his withdrawal from the Repub lican party, and such an acceptance of the Dem ocratic tenets as to be considered a virtual bid for the nomination at New York in July, 1868, by tho Convention - that made Mr, Seymour its standard hearer. It is asserted that such a plan had been adopted but that a combination of events in the convention frustrated it. Since that time, his sympathies have undoubtedy been with the Democratic party. • 1tfW of6.?01011 a more consP‘Cuou3 part in the affairs of the country than Judge Chase. He has been a conspicuous champion of free dom at a time when it required the highest moral courage to bo so, one of the greatest fi nanciers of the age, and a statesman of great resource and ability. His management of the national finances and tbs scheme he developed for meeting the enormous expenditures of the war against the rebellion, improving the public credit all tho while, entitles him to a'place in history as one of the greatest men of tho age. It is said that ho received his name from his uncle Salmon, who died suddenly in this city while pleading a case in court in 1800, two years before tho birth of Salmon Portland^ AIaxxic Sunday School Association. Tho annual convention of the Maine Sunday School Association will be held in the Baptist church in Biddeford, May 20th, 21st and 22d, 1873. The opening session will be held Tuesday even ing at 74 o’clock. Each Evangelical Sunday School will bo entitled to representation by the pastor of the church, superintendent and three delegates.

The six o’clock p. m. train from the west brought to this place a largo number of Meth odist preachers, who hold their Conference in the Centenary M. B. Church, commencing to morrow. The citizens generally open their doors to make them welcome. The advent of one hundred and fifty preachers, many of them accompanied by their wives, and an almost equal number of visiting friends, puts the hos pitality of a place of this size to a somewhat severe test; but the good people of Skowhegan are fully equal to the emergency and give proof of their ability to entertain a large number of guests most noblv. Among the arrivals wo notice Bishop Haven, who is to preside at this session of toe Confer ence, looking hale and fresh as usual, notwith standing his recent wearisome Mexican tour, Dr. Upham of the New England Couference, J. P. Meyer of Boston and several clergymen of other Coxferences, who come as visitors. At 7i o’clock the Conference prayer meeting was liolden. The spacious vestry of the Cen tenary church was filled. Bev. B. Lufkin led the meeting. Bev. A. Pottle of Waterville, read the third chapter of Ephesians, and nu merous prayers and exhortations followed. The preachers generally gave very encouraging ac couuts of their work during the past year, and all seemed in the enjoyment of a rich personal rience. v. P. Jacques, pastor of the church, in a few well chosen remarks, extended to the Con ference a cordial greeting. A. Sanderson, Pre siding Elder of Portland district, and E. Bob inson, a venerable and much esteemed member of the Couference, who are confined to their houses by sickness, are greatly missed and kindly remembered by all. Clyde. Industrial School for Girls. Hon. E. E. French of South Chestsrville, has t»en appointed by the trustees General Agent to lolicit aid for this institution. Mr. French whip a member of the State Senate, several years since, and chairman of the Committee on EducaRqu, became greatly interested in this important »iovement. From that timo he ha3 devoted birnsof almost entirely to the interests of the school, Uul vye lake pleasure iu com mending him to tve confidence of the public. It seems to bo genially acknowledged that this school has become an imperative necessity. It is the wish and deten»inatiou of the Trus tees to put it in operation present year; hut to'dothis nearly ten thousand dollars must he raised by subscription. If ever j one interested in the object will contribute something, he it more or less, the purpose will soon b3 accom plished. Without waiting for a call, let those who desire to aid the school send their dona tions to either Beuj. Kingsbury, jr., President, Hon. William Deering, Treasurer, or JIr3. Ja.s. E. Fernald, Director, at Portland. The Iron Business.—The iron mills and furnaces in Pittsburg and vicinity aro all run ning full time. Business, however, is not as brisk with them as it was this time last year, Last May they were crowded with orders, scarcely able to safely guarantee to fill a con tract at a certain date. Now it i3 comparative ly dull. Iron has a downward tendency, and few manufacturers are buying iron for future delivery. As the supply seems to ba plenty, buyers are not purchasing any more than they actually need. No. 1 foundry is quoted $44 tc $46; No 2, $41 to $43; gray forge, $39 to $10 white and mottled, $37 to $33; charcoal ho) blast, $50; cold blast, $65 to $70; and bloop"> $100to$120,according to quality. The steel-H'Us are not quite as busy as they would like he. None of them are idle, however, but t'-'W have orders enough to keep their machin-fy in mo tion.

A Trade Maxim.—The all-consuming desire of tho American people to make money is fruit ful of many evils. One of the saddest illustra tions of this is the case of young Ezra Short, who, haying engaged in the vending of oranges, and succeeding in disposing of a basket of them was tempted to add a box of sardines and two dozen shoe strings to the stock, and is now go ing through bankruptcy. The more haste the less speed is an axiom that keeps well.—Dan bury News. Bequiescat.”—Bev. II. G. Nott, a Baptist wcigj-uiau wen ixuown m tnis city and Ktate, died at Rochester, N.

Sometimes medicines that will stop a cough will of- ! ten occasion the death of the patient. It locks up the ' liver, stops the circulation of the blood, hemorrhage follows, and, in fact, clogging the action of the very organs that caused the cough. | Liver complaint and dyspepsia are the causes of two-thiids of the cases of consumption. Many are ’ now complaining with dull pain in the side, the how- I els sometimes costive and sometimes too loose, tongue coated, pain in the shoulder blade, feeling sometimes [ very restless, and at other times drowsy; the food that is aken lies heavily on the stomach, accompani ed with acidity and belching of wind. These symp toms usually originate trom a disordered condition of the stomach or a torpid liver. Persons so affected if they take one or two heavy colds, and if the cough m these cases bo suddenly stopped, the lungs, liyer and stomach clog, and remain torpid and inactive, and before the patient is aware of his situation, the lnngi are a mass of sores, and ulcerated, and death is tfe inevitable result. Schenck’s Pulmonic Syrup Is an expectorant which M rSSSTESSS:nor anythtag calcnlatcd Schcnck's Seaweed tonic diss v the food, mixes with the gastric Juico of the sto ach, digests easily, nourishes the system, and creat a healthy circula tjonof tho blood. When the els aro costive, skin shadow, and the patient is a billious habit, ®c.“6nck s Mandrake Pills are required. o/J?^o^?etiicine8 arc prepaired by Dr. J. H.
