Drafts tor that purpose were sent to the several county auditors. In this way the tax payers were re muoerated lor their loss by the pass age ot the bill and the cause of ed ucation promoted. The Lieut. Governorship. The name of Senator Dysart of this county has been used in connec tion with the Lieutenant Governor ship quite extensively in different parts of the State. Should the Re publican Convention see fit to place the name ot the Senator second on the State ticket, it would be a good selection and the' position ot Mr. Dysart in the matter ot railroad and other legislation, of direct interest to the farming portion of the State, has his nomination quite probable,should his name bo presented to tho Con vention in June. Tho'following let ter from him, dated at Dysart, April 8th, and addressed) to the publishers ot the Vinton Eugle explains itself: "In your piper ot the 2nd inst., I notice :i very complimentary para graph about rry fitness for the office ot Lieuii ir\iit Governor. f'r which, I heren'itli lender rny raopl sincere thank". Without, any motion of my own, or even a of ever ot tering for so responsible u position, a m-ijority of tho« in the General Assembly who ught hardest to se cure the passage of a railroad tariff law, hrtore we left Des Moinu*, re quested me to be a candi.lato for Lieutenant Governor, before the next Republican Convention. Had the tact not found its way into the newspapers, I think I should not have consented to enter the field.— Unless some abler advocate ot this most important issue, now before the people of Iowa and the whole Northwest, should be brought for ward, I shall be a candidate." Pension Laws Amended. Amoug tho last acts of the last Congress was one amending the Pen sion Law*: and the more important changes ah) thus compiled by the Albany Evening Journal: The rate of pension to tlmse who lost a leg above the lines, aiul can not use an artificial limo, is iiici-eased from $18 to $24 per montn, b« hoped that vigorous efforts will be the -rtted punWh- menu tfbo Indinn* to tW West, tho Ku Klux the South are evils such as Heel to be got rid of at soino -x pen**-, or kept so far withe minority •aa to rentier UMtt»«xi*ufleo unatteud ed by fear.

But iu both the above cases the increase does not commence until tho date of the examining surgeon's cer tificate.

Upon the death of a pensioner, or in eases where an applieant for a pen sion shall die before the issuanc* of a pension certificate, the ftrhars sh* 1 be paid only to a widow or to child ren under 16 years of age.

Th* manufacture of agricultural implements has lissn of late years to be one of the great industries of this country and an {immense eapital is now thus employed, particularly in the Northwestern States. The Wash ington correspondent of tho Intrr Octan has furnished some interesting statistics, gleaned from the census of 1870, which allow the rapid growth of this department of industry. Ed torially that paper says "The whole number ot these man' ufactories in the United States was •J,070, of Which 1,008, or nearly one half, were in the ten Northwesters Slates at Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kan sas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, and Wisconsin.— Tho whole number in the United Slates in 1850 was 1,333. Ot the whole increase in twenty years— 743—048 or six sevenths was in the ten States of the Northwest. Ol the inerease of establishments, Illinois hid the gnaust number and Michi gan tho highest per contage. The total capital invested in this branch ot industry in the United States in I860 was $3,504,20:2 num ber of hands employed, 7,'2'20. In 1870 tho eapital had increased to to 2-V249—a gr*wth of nine hundred and fifty per oent. in the capital and ot three huadred and fitly pur ceut in hands einployod. Tho total capital invested iu the Northwestern States in 1850 was $733,yj* number of hands emyloy ed, 1,888. In 1870 the capital had increased to $18,853,203 aud the hands employed to 13,979—a growth ol twenty five hundred pet ceut. in capital aud of seven hundred per cent, in hands employed. In 1850 all the manufactories in the United Slates paid in wages 2, 107.*08, used iu meterials, $2,445, 705, and produced implements valu ed at $6,842,911. In 1870 they paid in wages $12,151,504, used iu mater ials $*21,473,925, and produced $52, 0CG,87" worth ot implements In the Northwesern States named in

1850, wages amounted to $574,296 meterials to $-181,670, and products to $1,739,312, In 187) the total of wages had increased to $6,836,781, materials to $12,68G,970, and pro ducts to $29,013,748. This gives as the average gruwth in manufactures of Agricultural {implements these States, for each year ot the period since 1840, 5a per cent, iu wages, 12.) per cent, in materials, and 85 per cent, in products against a growth in the whole Uuited States, of only 27J percent, in wages, 45 per ceut. iu materials, and 3S per cent, in pro ducts."

BPITOWIAL KiOfWi Geo. Francis Train, the author of an endles* amount oi "bldo I and thuud*r poetry," has been examined by a bra** ol AL D's. who pronounc him of unsound mind. Ho claims to be the pagan dictator of this country and says that within 60 dajs every brick in the Toombs will be leveled the streets otNew York will be crim soned with blood, and he is the only man who can stop it. The country is certainly in a perilous condition, but if Train is our only salvation, by all means let the worst come. The United States Supreme Court has decided that the grant of Eight Million Acres of public lands by the State of Texas in 1858 to th* Mem phis & Et Paso Railroad is valid, and thatjthe acts et the Legislature repeal ing the grant are null and void. Ac cording to the decision ot the Court th* Company will be entitled to the grant when the railroad is finished, which is in accord with the con dition of the grant as we understand it. Shm A months.
