dry, like tbe creation of beasts anil tuau oil tbe sixth day; the existence of vegetables is made to precede the creation of the sun, the source of their life; and the light and darkuess are divid el from one another immediately after the creation of th9 light has been already men tioned. These and other peculiarities lead d’Eichtbal to conjecture that the account as we have it has undergone transposition and ad dition, and therefore evidently believing his own wotk of that sort to be as respectable as anybody’s, he proceeds to cut and slash the fragment until he gets what he thinks the orig inal text; eight strophes, each strophe contain ing two stanzas. One of his changes any one may try the effect of; it is simply placing verses 14-18 between verBes 8 and 9. He finds traces of Persian origin in the account of the creation of light, by a redactor of the primitive poem in tbe days of Ezra. [From the Louisville Courier-Journal.] The Defamatory Age. The readiness of the public to believe ill of those who stand under ils disfavor is equalled only by the readiness of one’s friends to keep the latest and liveliest scandal going. Prima rily it is a man’s cronies who are his most dan gerous accusers, for they speak by shrugs and innuendo, leaving the verbal gaps to be filled ia by the imagination of the liberal, perhaps hostile, listener. The boon companion always knows, if he would tell, how you got your fast lurse, what was the cause of your quarrel with your mother-in-law, who gave the lie in the little affair with Smith, and how you came by the cut over the right temple. He grieves in his inner sonl that yon are so reckless and im moral, and, indeed, has tried to stop your downward coarse. Your wife is a most charm ing woman, none more virtuous, but really her intimacy with Brown is getting to be talked about, aod he, this amiable friend, has serious thoughts of telliDg her just what people are sayiDg. The private enemy comes in posses sion of these things, then the public enemy, so that finally, if a man be of any consequence, he discovers that he has a very bad character. The discovery that Mr. Blaine’s career has had its ins and outs is the last sensation. The story of the Indianapolis Sentinel is hardly out before the newly started Nashville Banner, de siring, no donbt, to signalize its existence by something noticeable, prints a very scandalous, as well as a very false, narrative of the ex Speaker’s Kentucky record. All this Mr. Blaine laid himself open to when be made that dreadful mistake last winter. No one who knows him believes him capable of entertain ing settled malignance or venom. His Ander sonville spurt was therefore the more censura ble because it was insincere. But for tbe Democrats, who fell into the trap set for them, it would have been a failure, consigning iis author to merited ridieule. Tbe ex-Speaker is a master of parliamentary finesse—part of which is a just estimate of the temper of the bouse. I n this respect be did not miscalculate; his bit of unworthy enterprise produced the effect designed for .it; and, whilst in the long run it will injure him, its current impression seemB to justify his design. The cases trumped up against him, however, lilrxa fVrnoa (rnmnoil nrt ocraincl 'Rrietnar Tililan and Hendricks, will come to naught. They are offshoots of the time. And what a time it is! There are epidemics; but there never was snch an epidemic as this. Every period has its idiosyueracy; bnt what age has furnished so many mangled reputations? It is essentially an epoch of exposure aDd disgrace; of disgrace without exposure aud exposnre without disgrace. Already the public sense is becoming blunted. Beecher grows respectable by the side of Bab cock, and Belknap is comforted by Pen dleton. The purest come in for detrac tion, and Tilden is made to vie with Bristow in corruption whilst it is nip and tuck be tween Hendricks and Thurman which is the greater rogue. Last we have the ex-speaker, who, for the time being, is the worst of ail. Thus the confusion of honest men and thieves defeats the ends of justice, and those who set themselves as prosecutors become the instru ments of corruption. Partyism makes martyrs without much regard to questions of right aud wrong. But for Belknap’s panic he would to day lie a martyr as Scbsnck and Babcock are. He Equealed, and he made a wreck of his own case. Look at Boss Shepherd! a model of sa gacious acumen, who holds bis own aud has plenty of flunkeys to lick bis boot. Besides there are Kobe son, Meiggs, and Kufus Ingals. The newspapers are certainly carrying the business of defamation, based on insufficient and Irresponsible information, to au extent which is tolerably sure to bring about a reac tion. There is now hardly a public man, from such as Thurman to such as O’Conor, who has not bad himself smirched. If one remains, he he as chaste as ice, as pure as snow, he shall not escape calumny. This canpot last without its legitimate result,—a more dangerous state of indifference as to public morals than we have seen, and, by consequence, greater lati tude to thieves. Every lie that is told balances • truth. Confuse the classes and degrees of guilt, aDd, the standard being gone, the cor ruptionist becomes the companion of the most upright. The newspapers do not discriminate. They tefuse to spoil a sensation by disbelieving it. It is so easy to accuse, personalities are so popular, and the party set upon is so little like ly to make it warm for bis assailanr. We need a few successful libel suits. They would mend matters decidedly. [Boston Advertiser.] The Secret Service Fund. The system of suffrage which grew up iu New York city under the Tweed dynasty had no effectual check uutil the autumn of 1872. Some of the wards had long been under con trol of thieves aud ruffians, who secured im punity by their service iu manufacturing votes as they were needed by the King id the city orths State. The iniquities practiced under that system were the most audacious aud de fiant ever exposed under our government. There was no invention or exaggeration in the reports concerning them; they were judici ally estabiisbed again and again. Under the operation of the enforcement act the conspiracies which had long practically controlled the ballot box In that city were broken up aud scattered. Ballot stuffing, re duced to a science under the Tammany regimei became at once too perilous an occupation to be carried on in open daylight as it had been for many years before. This act was thought to be an extreme measure by many conserva tive people who had never had their own per sonal rights invaded. But in New York city it was welcomed by all honest rueu in the interest of good government, and the excellent results gained by it were universally recognized, but not everywhere with the same emotions. The Democratic vote fell off heavily under its operation. The new registry destroyed the occupation of the ballot-stuffing brotherhood in half the precincts in the city, and secured for the first time in many years a measurably pure election. Look back over the files of the Dem ocratic journals of that time and you will find them howling at the capture of'their strong holds, and threatening vengeance and destruc tion to every one who had a hand iu the en forcement of that righteous aDd efficient law. Small chance for revenge, it must be confessed, they have had since that time. But now, when the dogs are out, and the whole country round is wild with the excitement of the hunt, they have discovered that a few thousand dollars of secret service money was used to se cure the enforcement of that law. Well, what of it? It could not have been used fer a bet ter purpose. Now, if anybody knows that Mr. Davenport used the money illegally,—divided it with the Attorney General aud the President, bought votes enough with it to make New York Ite ■ publican that year, set up a gambling sboD un aet ine eaves or -LTlQity church, or anything else that be oughtn’t to,—out with it! Life’s a short summer at the best. There is no time like the present hour for a full and free confes sion. Piper’s Conjession.—The following is the substance of Thomas Piper’s confession or rath er explanation of the manner in which Mabel Yontrg met her death in the Warren Avenue Church belfry, on the 23d day of May, 1875. The condemned man explains it thus: There had been a deal of talk about the ventilation of the church, and Piper, as the sexton, conceived the idea of opening the trap-door in the tower to create a current of pure air. Accordingly on Sunday afternoon, the 23d of May, he went into the belfry, taking the bat with him, and taising the trap placed the bat under it to sup port it; then coming down he met the little girl Mabel coming up the first flight. She spoke to him pleasantly asking if she could go up into the tower to see the “birdies.” He gave the required consent and passed dowD, Mabel goiDg up. After he had reached the tower landing the thought struck him that Mabel might possibly attempt to go further upwards than the first laudiug, and he hastily retraced his steps, bouudiug up the stairs as fast as possible. Leaching the loft below the bell deck a sight met his eyes which almost froze his blood, for the trap-door had fallen and transfixed little Mabel’s head between it and the projecting edge of the lauding. Has tily raising the door he gently look up the child, who was screaming violently, aad laid • her beside the door on the heli deck, closed the door, ran down the steps, threw the bat one side, and sped down the stairs to the gallery landing, locking the door alter him. When he got down he met two or three ladies in the lower vestibule, and among them Miss Hinman, but he was so frightened he did not say anything, and the result was his person al fear induced him subsequently to be wholly silent concerning what be had seen. Then as he reflected he was still more afraid because he knew that the detectives at City Hall had an enmity and hostility to him. He felt that the officers might take advantage of his serious po sition to directly connect him with the crime in view of the previous record they had attached to him. He positively lenied having ever jumped from the window. This is the sub stance of his story as near as can be learned. What effect these developments will have upon his execution remains to be seen. The Governor of Massachusetts has overrul ■ ed the decisiou of subordinate militia officers and granted permission to the Boston Light In fantry to leave the state aad parade at Charles ton, S. C., as an indication that the people of Massachusetts are responsive to every loyal and patriotic sentiment. BY TELEGRAPH. MATTERS IN MAINE. Methodist Conference.

The opening ser vices were conducted by Messrs.Pottle aud Per ry, W. H, Foster presiding. The address of Chaplain McCabe was be yond the power of words to describe, while the wonderful power and pathos of his singing melted all hearts, so that at the close when Bishop Haven appealed to the congregation to aid the society, the pockets “began to flow.” E.

Augusta, April 22.—The Abbott wdl case which has been on trial in the S.J.Court,Libbey Judge, in this city for the past three weeks, was given to the jury to-day, who after a short consultation, rendered a verdict for the defence sustaining the will. The case has attracted considerable attention, the parties being well known in this vicinity. Mr. James Abbott of Pitlston, who died something more than one year since, in his will gave the bulk of his prop erty, some $20,000, to a daughter by a former marriage, Mrs. Clark of this city, leaving his widow a farm, &c , amounting to some $2000, and cutting off his sons by her with nothing. Action was accordingly brought to break the will on the plea of insanity. Gould of Thomas ton, Clay of Gardiner and Pillsbury of Augusta appeared for plaintiff, and Baker & Baker of Augusta and Henry Webster of Gardiner foi defence. It is understood the case will go to the law term on exceptions. The court will probably adjourn Monday when Judge Libbey will go to Calais to hold court there.

Davenport was going on to explain the frauds committed under the form of naturalization, when Caul field called the committee together to choke off the evidence, bat after consultation it was de cided the witness should go on. Witness then went on to particularize the frauds. He had prepared a mass of affidavits iu relation to these frauds, and convicted these parties. Mr. Caulfield—How were you paid for pre paring these affidavits. Davenport—1 was paid as every other United States Commissioner was paid. Some I was paid for and others I was Dot paid for. Wit ness examined a mass of affidavits and said he conld not designate the affidavits for which he was paid and those for which he was not. Wit ness, after a goed deal of badger'mg, went on to explain the frauds he discovered in registra tion under the law of New York. Witness ex plained that under the revised statutes he had gone on and prepared a number of hooks of in struction to deputy supervisors. These hooks were paid for under the'law by the department. He testified to the issue of warrants in 1872 for 1200 illegally registered persons, believing that they were not in existence, to prevent the per sons named from voting. Adjourned until Wednesday. Alleged Irregularities in the Treasury Un der Secretary McCulloch. St. Loitis, April 22 —George Prender, who was public debt statement clerk under Secre tary McCulloch, has gone to Washington to testify that each public debt statement then is sued reported money in the treasury not there, while the government was paying three per cent to meet temporary necessities; also that hundreds of thousands of dollars were placed in the hands of outside parties, who loaned it back to the government and drew interest on it. A clerk named Richardson, in the redemp tion bureau, stated to friends that immense frauds were perpetrated iu that bureau, and fortunes made by reporting money destroyed which was preserved; that only half the money turned in for destruction was actually destroyed and the other half was divided among the perpetrators of the frauds. Prender reported these facts to Gen. Spinner, who was treasurer, but the latter declined in vestigating them, saying that he did not believe frauds were practiced. In March, 1809, the Congressional retrenchment committee was ex amining alleged frauds in the Treasury printing department, Prender went to Edmunds of Ver mont, chairmau of the committee, and laid all the facts before him, aud asked for an investi gation. Edmunds replied that the time of the committee was too short to warrant an ex tended investigation and nothing was done. After Boutwell became Secretary, Prender who at that time had retired from the Treasury Department, informed him of the discoveries he had made while a clerk, and the Secretary promised to investigate the matter shortly. After this a man named Fox, who had also been a clerk in the redemption bureau, called on Prender and stated that he had been ap pointed a detective by Secretary Boutwell to work up these frauds, and wanted all the pa pers and evidence he had in his possession. Prender declined to give them up except on an .order from Bontwell. Fox left, but returned a little while after with a letter from the Sec retary, asking fer the documents, and Prender gave them to Fox in the presence of a witness who knew their character and who 19 now in Washington. In the meantime Bichardson bad retired from the redemption bureau and located at Albany, N. Y. Fox visited him and soon afterwards Bicharson, although a Demo crat, was appointed assistant postmaster at Al ban;, and no investigation of the frauds was ever made. Prender will probably testify before the com mittee at Washington on Monday, when it is expected the matter will be brought to light. The Government Insane Asylm* A woman who has been an attendant in the government insane asylum testified to day that the clothing and food were insufficient. She had seen tainted meat given to patients and some of the female patients had fingers frozen for want of proper warmth in the wards. Dr. Nichols was so much engaged outside that he did not give proper attention to the hospital, one time not going through the wards for three months. Vermin came upon the clothing from the laundry. Various matters. A resolution has been prepared by a Itepub lican member of the House to be offered to morrow, proposing that investigations now in progress shall be conducted with open doors. The Commissioner of Internal Eevenue Sat urday by direction of the President wrote a letter to Supervisor Hedrick asking for his re signation. Supervisor Mathews has resigned. The Treasury up to Saturday night had paid out in exchange over $200,000 in silver coin. Ex-Detective Whiteley says the indictments against him is not worth anything, as he has a letter from the Attorney General securing im munity to him for all acts. He gives his opin ion pretty ireely as to the evidence to be brought out, but it is all in his own favor. The House Committee on Indian Affairs have agreed to recommend the immediate appropri ation of $50,000 for the subsistence of the Ari zona Indiaus,whom Gen.

Va., from the Commit tee on Foreign Affairs, reported a bill in re gard to citizenship, and to define certain rights of U. S. people in foreign countries and certain duties of diplomatic and consular offices, and addressed the House in advocacy of it. Mr. Cox offered a substitute for the bill in which he said be had endeavored to gather all the virtues that were in the bill. Mr. Began objected to that section of the bill which permitted aliens to hold real estate in this country. He also objected to the fifth section which provides how marriages in for eign countries between U. S. citizens and aliens may be contracted and solemnized. He thought the control ot that subject was not one of the functions of the federal government. The farther consideration of the bill was postponed till Wednesday. The House then took bp the bill reported by Mr. Douglass of Virginia to amend the charter of the Freed men's Bauk. Mr. Douglass said he did not care to address the House, but would yield the floor to Mr. Bradford of Alabama, who desired to offer some amendments to the bill. Mr. Bradford offered a substitute for the first three sections. It requires the Secretary of the Treasury to ap point a competent man to take charge of and wind up the affairs of the bank, the Secretary to retain the general supervision of this com missioner. Mr. Bradford insisted that action was due to sixty odd thousand depositors of the Freed man’s Bank, who were principally colored people living in the Southern states. That it was a duty which Congress ought not longer to shirk, particularly in view of the fact that Con gress was to some extent responsible for the losses of the depositors. He characterized the whole affair and about all connected with the bank and its branches as frauds. Wit. limit. apf.inn flm ITnnca adintirnml The Panama and Pacific mail War.

New York, April 22.—The Tribune says ex Representative Wilson of Indiana, denies the statements of Mr. Harrison of Indianapolis, in so far as they convey an impression that either by letter or telegram he conveyed information that Mr. Blaine was in any way connected with the transactions of the Union Pacific Railroad. Press Detective* Waul to Investigate. Boston, April 22.—The Journal's Washing ton special says: The press detectives, having failed in their attempt to secure the impeachment ot Presi dent Grant for uulawful expenditures of pub lic money in securiug the purity of national elections in the city of New York, and not hav ing succeeded in defaming the character of Secretary Bristow, have returned to their at tacks on Mr. Blaine. They demand an inves tigation into the Little Rock and Fort Smith Railroad, and mention as witnesses Messrs. Hayes, Caldwell and Huntington of Boston. Then they want various officers of the Arkan sas state 'government, including Brooks, Bax ter, McClure and W ilshire, and then today mention as desirable witnesses Gov. Coburn of Maine, E. H. Rollins of New Hampshire, Mr. Harrison of Indiana, J. F. Wilson of Iowa, and Morton, Bliss & Co., of New York, ami questions have been prepared for all of these witnesses to answer, building up a theory of wrong doing on the part of Mr. Blaine which he will before^ery long entirely demolish. The programme of the detainers is good, but it lacks the element of truth. THE INDIANS. Further Particular* of Crook'* Cam paign. Washington, April 22 —A letter from the Red Cloud agency says that most of the Indians returned during March, and there has been no trouble, although food was scarce for them. He also writes that a half breed scout, who was with Gen. Crook’s expedition, reports that it wts a complete failure, with the exception of killing an old squaw and two children and the destruction of about forty lodges, with a loss to the troops of 40 killed and 0 wounded. Seven hundred Indian ponies were captured, but were recaptured the following day, with the exception of abont 70 head. The agent denies the reports that the In dians had mines of ammunition acd abundance of supplies, saying that 5 pounds of powder and 20 pounds of lead and 6 boxes of percussion caps was all the ammunition found in the abandoned camp. It is generally known throughout that country that the “hostiles” do the principal part of their trading at points on the Missouri river. The agency Indians ap pear ro take but little interest in what trans pired north, but a disastrous result may have a tendency to awaken the old feeling. The Cheyenne* in Marauding Baud*. St. Louis, April 23.—The Globe-Democrat’s Leavenworth special says news from the seat of the Indian troubles in Big Horn country is to the effect that the Cheyennes have broken up into small bands for marauding purposes. A party of miners had a fight with one of these bands yesterday, in which one Indian was killed aud two wounded. The miners held their ground and drove the Indians off. FOREIG N . ivmusu nsvuHEt'iigfl, Turkey Ceasing Negotiations. London, April 22.—A despatch flora Berlin says it is understood that Turkey has refused to continue negotiations with the northern powers and prolong the armistice, under the impression that the alliance between the three Emperors has become weakened. As this supposition has now proved unfound ed, it is hoped that the Porte will ultimately consent to further negotiations, being pressed by England. A Wuich on Montenegro. A telegram from Constantinople says the Ini perial decree is published ordering a camp of observation at Scutari to watch Montenegro. The rumey that the Porte has decided to de clare war against Montenegro is unfounded. Constantinople, April 23.—The English and Russian ambassadors bad interviews with the Grand Vesier. These conferences resulted in the announcement that the Porte has no in tention of declaring war against Montenegro. Servian Militia Ordered to the Frontier. London, April 24.—The Times dispatch from Berlin reports that the Servian war office has ordered all the militia-meu to prepare for a foreign campaign. It is considered, however, exceedingly improbable that Servia will go to war unless she is attacked by Turkey. A dispatch to the Russian Telegraphic agen cy says an order has been sent from Constanti nople to revictual Nicsic for six months at any cost. It seems nnlikely that Servia and Mont enegro win remain unaffected. If the Turks are victorious they will attack the principali ties. The Eastern crises has reached a mo moment when it is for force to pronounce the last word. Probable Intervention. Lodon, April 22.—The Pall Mall Gazette special from Berlin says it is again proposed that in the event of all the means of restoring peace in the Turkish provinces failing Austria should interfere forcibly. It is reported that the powers now view the proposal favorably, and its acceptance is probable. A dispatch from Constantinople says it is un derstood that Montenegro has been notified that unless she maintain strict neutrality the Turkish troops will immediately cross the fron tier.

Because the have not made tills disease the study ot a life-time, as did old Dr. Kaeder, a dis tinguished German Professor, who has probably spent more time over this intricate complaint than any person on the globe. Reflect lor a moment, use your good sense, and remember that the origin of Catarrh is in a COBHIOA COLD Which oue Box of the great remedy, RIDER’S German Snuff, Would have quickly cured. Now what are the spmptoms of Catarrh? They commence with a sense of irritation about the nasal organs which, if not allayed with GERMAN SNUFF, after a short time extend to the throat. As you lie down at night, and fain would sleep and rest the weary brain, HORRIBLE TO SAY, The Secretions of the Head PASS TO THE LUNGS, Causing these delicate organs to become impregnated with CATARRHAL POISON. In the morning you arise with a dull, heavy feel ing about the head and extreme nausea at the stom ach; you cau eat nothing with a relish, to work is a task, as you have that dull pain and sense of oppres sion w hich demonstrates the fact that CATARRH HAS SECURED A VICTIM. Now when you realize this fact, do not get frightened and run and pay five or ten dollars for worthless advice, but invest just 35 cents in a box ot SLUDER'S German Snuff, Use it according lo directions, and a cure is war ranted. PEOPLE OF NEW ENGLAND, Beware of thin bnn« af Ihc age; do not be cut down in tbr prime of lile and hurried to the itrare. Remember Cntnrrh ram* Con.nmptiou. and by the uae of ihi. reme dy you will certainly be cared. MEN AND WOMEN, we mean you who are troubled with these com plaints, alas! so common, such as Partial Paralysis, Neuralgia of the Head, Rim Vision, Loss of Energy, Lose no time to lid yourself of what in time will kill vou, for all of the above are the results of neglected . Catarrh. MOTHERS! MOTHERS: We beg of you do not give your little ones Worm 1 Medicine when they complain of being ‘•stuffed up.” 1 No, no! they have what is far worse and more dan jerous than a myriad of worms. They have INFANTILE CATARRH, Ahich, when neglected, and their bodies are placed n a horizontal position, leads very often to what is mown as a SUDDEN CROUP, which in nine cases put of ten cannot ho cured, and vou behold your oved one die before your eyes.
