A l'leaiting Inchleut.
A gentleman from Richmond, Ya,
stopping at a private boarding place
in this city, was wishing for some
thing to read, something light and
cheerful, to while away the evenings.
He was referred to the drawer of the
! 1 t ... .t 1 I
uouKcase, w nere mere were anumuer
of magazines, both old and new. He
wisely selected "Littell," and on re
turning for a second supply of the
same book his eye fell on "Scribner,"
Bedford," Harper," and others. He,
consulting with his other selfcaid,
"I will look over the prints in Sciib
ner awhile and rest eyes," then
changing his mind (was it altogether
chance?) he selected Harper. He
found it to be an old copy of 1S85.
Opening the volume the first thing
which caught his eye was the picture
of his mother. She had died in his
infancy and of course he would not
have recognized it, but underneath,
in small capitals he read "Elizabeth
Robertson Barksdale," which was
supplemented by a sketch of her life.
She was a daughter of J udgej. Robert
son, so well known in Richmond.and
married Mr. Robert Barksdale, law
yer, of Clayhill, Amelia county, Va.
We can well imagine how his eyes
grew dim with unshed tears, as he
gazed on the gracious face and the
smiling yes, which had shed their
light of mother-love on his helpless
childhood. The picture represented
her as she appeared in early girl
hood, as one of the belles ol Rich
mond, one of fairest of the fair, in
those old days when so many beauti
ful woman gracedthe classic city by
the James. It is stated that she
was noted not only for her grace and
loveliness but for her very resemb
lance to the Indian princess, I'ocha
hontas, of whom she was a lineal
descendant. Truth is oft-times
stranger than fiction, and who shall
say. that this little romance, running
like a gloden thread through the
matter of fact-web of everyday life,
was entirely accidental ? "There

phy." A Household Treasure.

Hit Ki'lit of Instruction.
An extraordinary movement is on
foot in opposition to the right of in
struction to party and public servants
But the right of instruction is one of
the bed-rock principles of the Demo
cratic party, which helped to distin
guish it from its old rival, the Whig
narty. The denial of the right was
based on the aristocratic idea that the
office holder knew better what the
people wanted than the people. With
the granting of free suftrage to the
people of North Carolina in 1854, the
last prop, logically speaking, was
knocked from under the Whig doc
trine. It is possible that, instead of
preserving the form of Republican
government, we would find it more
convenient 10 serve a Shah, Czar, or
other despot; and it is possible that
thirft might follow an abandonment
of the Democratic party by sucn as
might join its present great adversary,
but, for the sake of all that's becom
ing.as long as we call ourselves Demo
crats, let us stick to Democratic
doctrine. There is no principle of
the party so well settled as the Right
The people, as we have elsewhere
remarked, have the silver question

Washington, August JT. Congress
If there ever had been a lingering
hope of more legislation during the re
mainder of tins session of congress,
that hope was dissipated by a remark
made behind closed doors Friday ar'ter
lioon by .Mr. Quay that it was to be 1111
dersUxid that there should be no mora
legislation at this session in connection
with et -litest ed matters. This was ac
quiesced in and a few moments later an
adjournment was had. The closing
days of the session have been markefl
by a number of peculiar incidents, and
the unexpected has frequently happen
ed. One of the incidents referred to
hus been the transaction of legislative
business behind closed doors. Senators
of both parties have a number of meas
ures that require only the iinal action
of the senate to enact them, but the re
publicans were not willing to provide
the quorum nor would they permit
business to proceed in the open session
by unanimous consent for fear the dem
ocrats would, by some means find the
opportunity to make the campaign
speeches they have prepared. 1'or this
reason legislative business against
which no objections were made, was
transacted behind closed doors by gen
eral consent Thursday and l'ridav.

Hlanchard has effectually blocked, for

his committee sit during recess and con
sider the many amendments to the

WAR ON THE ANARCHISTS.
The ;overniiient Increases t hu Police Force
in Merlin for That Purpose.
Hkklin. August 27. The capture of
fourteen anarchists, some ten days ago.
was the beginning of a series of impor
tant discoveries which is still in pro
gress. The police have found secret
meeting places frequented by anarch
ists in l'.remen. buebeek. Lundensheild

burg. Altoona. Nummelsburg and
Duesselddorf. They have learned also
that there are anarchist groups in
Leipsic. Madgeburg and Frankfort,
although still unable to find the meet
ing places in these three towns. The
first result of these discoveries is the
government's decision to increase the
police in licrlin where many anarchists
meetings have been held in the last six
months. A special credit for this pur
pose will be proposed in parliament.

THE REVENUE ON CARDS.
Everything in Keaii:i- la HrKiii the Tax
Collect ioi on Tuesday.
Wa:-iiini;:-o.. August '7. The tariff
bill impo.-es a tax of i cents ou every
pack of playing cards, containing not
more than lilty-ioiir cards, in the Uni
ted States. Secretary Carl'dse estimates
the revenue from this source at Sl.OUO.
0()i) for the current fiscal year. Treas
ury expei ts estimate the entire stock
of playing ear ls now in the hands of
dealers at 10.00(1.000 packs. The annual
product of domestic manufacturers is
estimated at liO.O'Jii.OOO packs. Imported
playing cards are dutiable at the rate of
10 cents per pack and 50 per cent ad
valorem, and are also subject to the
internal revenue tax of 2 cents per pack.
The foreign made cards are treated like
all other importations of dutiable mer
chandise. The duties are assessed and
collected by the customs officials, who
are also charged with the duty of seeing-
that each pack is provided with the
regulation internal revenue stamp, -price
2 cents. Thecollectioii of the tax
on the domestic product, including the
stock-cm hand, devolves entirely upon
the otiieci of the internal revenue ser
The preparation of the execution of
this business is well advanced, not with- ,
standing the fact that the tariff bill is
not yet la w and is not expected to be
until tomorrow morning. Inasmuch
as this provision of the bill takes
effect immediately on the day the bill
becomes law. it was absolutely neces- j
Nary to make arrangements for its
enforcement in advamce. Kvery pack
of cards will bear a stamp. Cards in i
stock not exempt. I

destitution prevails. A wind of death.
No other name can describe the cyclone
that swept across the sea of Azoff Sat
urday. It will be impossible for days
yet to compute the damage done, but
it is almost certain that at least 1,(100
people have perished, some by drown

was destroyed and uo;se of the boats

latest report not one of the steamers
that touch at the port of ISerdainsk had

every craft in the sea has gone to the
bottom, and that every passenger is
drowned. When the wind swept over
the northern end of Azoff it took new
courses, going southerly along the
coast of the land of I Hack Cossacks. In

KOLB'S OWN LEGISLATURE.
