not be served upon him;
Now, therefore, I. THOMAS J. JAB VIS. Gover

From the paths of sinfulness,
Teach me that to trust Thy word
Is the way to joy and peace.

Under Consideration The lie
Special to Baltimore Sun.
Washington, March 27. The ariny
appropriation bill waa introduced in
the House to-day by Mr. Sparks, and as
the anticipated objection to .its intro
duction was not made, the considera
tion of the bill was at once proceeded
with. All the provisions of the bill
were passed upon till the political fea
tures were reached, when an adjourn
ment was had. No restriction was
placed upon the debate to-day, but if,
when the two sides of the chamber lock
horns, the discussion promises to be
protracted, the live minutes' rule will
probably be adopted after a reasonable
Experienced members of Congress ex
pressed the opinion to-day that, even
under the most favorable circumstan
ces, Congress is not likely to be able to
adjourn in less than three weeks from
this time. It was said in well-informed
quarters to-day that there was not much
reason to doubt now that the appropri
ation bills, with the political features
attached, would become laws either
with or without the signature of th.
President; that there was a strong pro
bability that if he could not bring him
self to the point of affixing his signa
ture to the bills he would permit them
to become laws by allowing the consti
tutional limit of ten days to expire
without returning them. These VieWf
are only matters of opinion, but they
are received with confidence, and so
strong has the impression taken hold of
the stalwart Republicans that the Presi
dent is " shaky , that they go up to the
White House in troops every day to
expostulate with him and stiffen him

during the discussion the feeling pre
vailed although no expression was giv
en to it, that ultimately the Democrats
would succeed in their purposes, either
through the active or passive assent of
the President, but the determination
was tamake the fight as vigorous and
as protracted as possioie, irrespective
of this. It was said that the clause, in
the army hill containing the political
features bad been made much more
comprehensive than it was in the army
bill as passed by the last House, and
that if it was passed and the bill be
came a law, it would give to the Demo
crats everything that they wanted, and
they would not need to make any fight
on the legislative, executive and judi
cial bill. The determination that the
Republicans should make no more pairs
will be a source of much personal in
convenience, but it will bear as hard on

An act to provide for keeping in re

the justices in each township a body
corporate styled the " board of supervi

is to be held on the first Monday in May
for election of a chairman, to serve un
til the first Monday in February, 1880,
the time for subsequent annual elec
tions. The board is to meet on the first
Monday of February, May, August and
November, to consult on the condition
of the roads, having in the preceding
week gone over slBA personally examin
ed them. At the May meetings over
seers shall be appointed for sections
then laid off, and hands allotted to them
and their field of work assigned. The
overseer may resign after one year's
service if he has done good service, and
may work instead of oversee work for
two years thereafser.

The overseers are to make quarterly
reports under oath to the boards of the

failing to work or to pay to be at once
warranted and tried. At the February
meetings of the boards, the overseers
are to make report of all moneys col

expenditure. Failing to discharge these
duties is a misdemeanor, for which
overseers are to be warranted and fined

The supervisors are empowered to lay
out and discontinue cartways; the
county commissioners to lay out and
discontinue public roads, under exist
ing rules, except that no more than five
jurors may be summoned to assess dam
age to property. The supervisors, also,
are to make annual report, at the first
term of the Superior Court for their
county after the first Monday in Au
gust, of the condition of the roads and
as to the discharge of the duties as
signed. Failure to do so is a misde
meanor, and the penalty is fine or im
prisonment or both, as the court please.

to do so, and he gave the stool a kick
that knocked it out into the street.

having in his wagon a cradle, and in

calf became somewhat restless and noi

pronounce it an excellent mode of con
