The Captions. Ve print this morn
ing the captions of all the acts and reso
lutions of the last General Assembly in
which any reader jof The Observer
has the least interest or concern. For
the sake of economy of space we strike
from the list so many of The captions as
relate to local bills passed for the benefit
if townships or neighborhoods in the
extreme eastern part of the State ; but

general State interest, is left in the list,
and not only so but that of every bill
which applies to any corporation, neigh
borhood or section in the State west of
Raleigh. These captions will give our
readers all that they desire to know, in
advance of the publication df the laws,
concerning the work of the Legislature,
and we print them for information at
the earliest possible moment.
Complexion of the Fcrty-Sixth
Congress. The Baltimore Sun pub
lishes the name of every Senator and
Itepresentative in the Forty-Sixth Con
gress, by States, designating the politi
cal party with which'1 each will act.
The recapitulation allows that in the
Senate there will be 42 Democrats, 33
Republicans and 1 Independent a Dem
ocratic majority of 8. In the House
there will 1 147 Democrats, 129 Re
publicans, 11 Nationals a Democratic
majority of 7 over all, even supposing
that all of the Nationals will act with
the Republicans, which will not be the
case, a majority of them being really
Democrats. There are 0 vacancies of
these 4 from California and it is a more
than liberal estimate to the Republi-
cans to say that when
in the House are filled
majority will be 15.
The School BtL.-Tlie Raleigh News
states that in the hurry of the last day
of the session of the General Assembly
the "act to revise and consolidate the
public school laws" failed to receive
the signatures of the President of the
Senate and the Speaker of the House.
In consequence thereof it is not a law.
The presiding officers cannofsign a bill
except when their respective houses are
in session, hence we will knock along
for two years V more under the old
school system. ;
The Reveni-e Bill The Raleigh
News says : "It is the opinion of that able
and sagacious representative, Colonel
Brown, of Mecklenburg, that the new
revenue bill the best the State
lias ever had. The machinery it
employs lor the listing and as
sessing of ersonal property is
one of ij8 distinguishing excellencies.
Much valuable thought was given this
subject by Senatofr Alexander."
We see from the Washington Gazette,
of Sunday, that on the day previous
Senator Z. B. Vance and Representa
tive R. F. Armaeld, of North Carolina
arrived at the Metropolitan Hotel in
that city ; on the same day Hon. J. J.
JJayis and "vyi Steele, of North Caro
lina, arrived at tile National. Senator
Hansom was already at the Metropoli
tan before the arrival of these gentle
men. And the child's name is Randall!
(iood enough. It is the beginning of
his third term of service in the chair,
which perhaps bever had an occupant
his superior. ,
"The Legislature passed four hundred
and fifty-six bills and fifty-four resolu
tions. Many a Legislature has done
much worse Kan this.
Revenue Seizures Id Virginia, North

Washington, March 17. The com
missioner of internal revenue has been
advised by ih& collector at Raleigh. N.
C, of the capture of another still on

distilleries were seized , in Franklin

in the mountain country, on the 15th

amount of other property.

ceiving the report of the committee of
nihe appointed by the caucus of Saturj
day, to prepare the Democratic mem
bership of the standing comtaHtees.
The committee announced , that ' the
work assigned to them was unfinished,
and it was resolved to extend their
time until to-morrow afternoon, im
mediately after the adjournment of the
Some discussion then occurred with
regard to the advisability of proceed
ing to nominate and ballot for the of
ficers of the Senate. It was generally
conceded that there was no need for
haste in disposing of that subject, and
it was therefore agreed to postpone its
consideration until Thursday next.
Senator Beck offered a resolution
providing in substance that the legisla
tive business of the Senate during tjie
extra session shall be confined to the
passage of the tw6 annual appropria
tion bills, which failed of enactment
last session, including the political
measures that were incorporated in
them by the House of Representatives,
viz: The repeal of the Federal election
laws and the jurors' test oath, and the
prohibition against the presence of
troops at the polls. After some discus
sion this resolution and general snb
iect of the order of business were re
ferred to the following committee, with
instruction to report to the caucus to
morrow or as soon thereafter as practi-;
cable: Messrs. Thurman, , Saulsbury,

REPUBLICAN HOUSE CAUCUS.
The Republican members elect of
the House of Representatives held a
caucus in the hall of the House this
evenine. Frye, of Maine, was made
chairman and Amos Townsend, of
Ohio, secretary of the caucus, whicb,
thereupon proceeded to nominate can
didates in behalf of the Republicans
for the various elective officers of the
House. The following were nominated
ivnanimouslv: For Speaker, Gen. Gar
field, of Ohio ; for Clerk of the House,
ex-Congressman Rainev, of South Car
olina ; for Sergeant-at-Arms, Gen. Jere
miah M. Rusk, of Wisconsin ; for Door
keeper, James M. Milton, of Tennessee ;
for Postmaster, Gen. Harry Sherwood,
of Michigan ; tor Chaplain, Dr. Zaylor,
of the Metropolitan Methodist Episco
pal church, of Washington Citv. The
following were appointed to act as an
executive and advisory committee of
the Republican caucus for the- forty
sixth Congress : Representatives Frye,
Garfield, Conger, Dunnell, James, Har
ris, Henderson, Harmer and Haskill
After some discussion as ' to its form
but with practical unanimity in regard
to its purpose, it was Tesolved as the
sense of this caucus, that no legislation
shall be entered upon during this ses
sion other than that for which the ses
sion was especially called.
During the preliminary interchange
of views, the general desire was ex
pressed for a short session.
In the Democratic caucus to-night,
the first ballot for Speaker resulted as
follows: Randall, 75; Blackburn, 57;
McMahon, 3 ; Morrison, 2 ; Cox, 4. This
insures the nomination of Randall for
Speaker of the fortv-sixth Congress, on
the first ballot.

Burnish Still Critical.
London, March 17 The Times' Cal
cutta dispatch says the chief commis
sioner lor lintish J5urmah now has a
sufficient force to protect the British
territory, but the position of. 'tne resi
dents and other Europeans Mandalay is
critical in the extreme. The best hope
for their safety rests on the belief that
the king and his advisers are not so en
tirely lost to all sense of prudence as to
precipitate their own downfall by rush
ing into hostilities.
A telegram from Rangeon contradicts
the special dispatch to the Daily
News of the 14th inst;, saying that it was
thought that an ultimatum would be
sent by the British to Mandalay.
A Zola Lie for Effect.
London, March 17. The story pub
lished on the 10th that Col. Pearson
had been attacked at Ekowe by a
large force of Zulus, and that the latter
were defeated with enormous loss, is
utterly false. It was, probably circula
ted by the Zulu in order to delay the
dispatch of assistance to Ekowe.

has refused to aid or to permit its citi

Zulus, oh constitutional grounds.

k Disease that Wrecks the tsystea.
Every function Is deranged, every nerve unstrung.
every muscle aad noei weateneq Dy iever ana
ague. It is. In fact a disease, which unchecked,
eventually wrecks the system. In all Its types, in
every phase, It is dangerous, destrucUve. Stupor,
delirium, convulsions, often attend it, and cause
swift dissolution. But when eombatted with Bos
tetter's Stomach Bitters its foothold in the system
is dislodged, and every vestige of it eradicated,
That be aim anti-f ehrile specific and preventive of
the dreaded scourge is recognized not only within
our own boundaries, but in tropic lands fax beyond
them, where lntennlttents and remittents are fear
fully prevalent, to be a sure antidote to the mar
larial poison and a reliable means of overcoming
disorders of the stomach, liver and bowels, of
which a vitiated torrid atmosphere and brackish
miasma-tainted water are extremely provocative.

S resented tens of thousands of the victims of de
