The Indiscriminate scramble for office that is daily witnessed in I Washington City is becoming a national disgrace. This scramble is'not confined to Ohio men, by any means, although the ordi nary reader of the papers might sup. pose that nobody but Ohio men held office and that the chief occupation of j an Ohio man, is in holding omce, ana that the main object that an Ohioian of the masculine gender has, in being born, is that he may one day become an office-holder. Thus far the Ohioian has been remarkably s uccessf ul in the aim of his ambition and astonishingly num erous in and about the provender crib But he U not the only one, as we re marked, who has this consuming hank ering for pap. Everywhere throughout this broad land, from where the seal dives in icy waters on Alaska's frigid shores on the north (no strain in this) to where the lounging alligator wal lows in the tepid waters warmed up by an almost tropic sun on the south (nor in this either) from where the howling blizzard cometb with an unforgetable blizzardness on the western plain, to the eastern seaboard, whereLthe frosted winds lash the foam on ocean's crest and nip the noses of the Nantucket codfisher. We believe that takes all of Uncle Sam's plantation in. They are everywhere, amusingly numerous, mar velously ubiquitous, desperately persis tent, and disgustingly conspicuous. It was bad enough in years gone by, even in the days of what they call the fathers . we know a gentleman now, advanced in years, prominent as a law yer, and one of the leading politicians of the Western State in which he re sides, whose first venture in young manhood was to come from the then territory of Wisconsin to Washington in search of an office, which he hoped ' to get in consideration of the valuable services he had rendered the party, re mained there about a month, spent all his money and finally borrowed enough from Daniel Webster (to whom he told the story of hi3 disappointment and got some good advice in return) to go home on. He has never gone to Washington since unless legal business called him before the Supreme court or the lobby, which he has successfully cultivated, imperatively called him. Thousands have had his experience practically, but instead of quitting, as he did, still hang on to be disappointed year after year. Tes, it was bad enouzh then, but it has been getting worse ever since Then there was not one office to where there are a hundred now, not one to fill them then to where there are a thou sand now, which is accounted for, to some extent at least, by the fact that Uncle Sam's income was not as large then as it is now ; he had not a dollar to be stolen then where he has a thousand now. wasnington was a village com paratively, what Tom Moore (we be lieve it was) called a "city of magnifi cent distances," in summer dust,;in win ter mud ; now it is a city of two hun dred thousand with neither dust nor mud; one of the handsomest and best paved cities in the world, though really a city of boarding houses, which has grown, and thriven principally upon this class of people who frequent it in such great numbers. Now seven out of every ten men met in the hotels, departments, barrooms, bagnios, gaming houses, and other Capital places of attraction, are men in quest of berths that will enable them to draw a salary and live with little or with no labor. Then they are of all classes from the humble but hopeful searcher after a small billet to the pom pous beggar for a cabinet place, a va cant roost on the supreme bench, or a feathered nest in a foreign mission. They are all there, all beggars alike, but of somewhat different degrees. - We wish we could say for North Carolina that she was an exception to this gen eral rule, and that she had not her standing brigade (now a money brigade) of large and small, distinguished and fame unknown, with assaulters. But she has, and at this time she is more distinguished in this respect. There they are in person or by representative from the four points of the compass, from "Currituck to Cherokee" (or words to that effect) from the Old Dominion border to the Palmetto line, there they are with their best store clothes on, their hair greased, a "biled" shirt in their satchels and their nails (figura tively speaking) sharpened to scratch the eyes out of the fellows that hanker after the loaves and fishes, so to speak, which they loyally hunger for. Never before since Christopher Columbus struck terra firm a and proclaimed the doctrine of squatter sovereignty in this country, which on subsequent occasions figured extensively in our politics, has there been such a gatb.ering.in quantity and quality of the ins and want-to-get-ins in that burg, as has flocked thither since the new administration has come into power. And such a contest as they are waging, was never perhaps witnessed before. Though they belong not to our household and we are not responsible for them nor their actions as Carolinians, we could wish they had less dirt to fling and flung less of it. But they seem to hrfve carried the accumu lations of their muck heaps with them and scatter with a vengeance. There are few of them to whom some of it does not stick. It is shameful, disgusting, and the sooner some way is devised of changing the mode of selecting officers to fill the places now filled by Presidential ap pointment, which calls the gangs of office-hunters to Washington to wrangle and insult the sense of decency in the country, the better for the country. The dividends from the Nevada mines last year were $6,195300, while the assessments were $6,639,000. The total yield was $9,505,000. The Augusta, Georgia, News wants Col. J. O. Foreacre to come to the front for Governor. Mayor Harrison, of Chicago, seems to be trying his hand at a little reform. He has ordered all gambling houses to be closed after seven o clock in the even ing, and forbids the proprietors of such places to provide free lunches and such attractions. In the fifteen years since the war the South has raised nearly $10,000,000 more cotton than she did during the last fif teen years of- slavery. This addition was worth about $600,000,000 almost enough to compensate them for the loss of their slaves. Small grain shows up well in Geor- gAm ANOTHER HOLOCAUST. PARK ROW IN A SVDDEIf BLAZE. IHnch Property Destroyed and it la Feared Many Live Leet. New York. Jan. 31. The buildings destroyed or damaged by to-day's fire comprised the entire triangular block bounded Dy 1'arK now, jjeesman ana Nassau streets and was one of the most crowded blocks in the city, con sidering the space it covered. The upper floors were occupied Dy various manufacturing industries and as composing rooms of many weeKiy newspapers, the majority of which em ployee: women compositors. The fire began in an old building recently occupied by the World news paper. It was the property of ex Congressman Orland B. Potter. It was a very large building, extending from Park Kow to Nassau street along Beek man, with entrances only on Park Row and Nassau streets. It was full of wooden windows, cor ridors and crooked stairways, and has been for years regarded by firemen with apprehension. Recently an ele vator had been put in on the Nassau street side, and in this elevator shaft the fire (originated, on the basement floor, and running up the shaft filled the halls and stairways so quickly with flame and smoke that escape by that means was cut off before the occupants of the upper floors suspected danger. Many people were seen by those in the streets below to appear at the win dows with hair and garments ablaze, but they soon disappeared. One man who gained the roof and escaped by way of the Times building shouted to the rescuers that scores of people were cut off from escape. Sjme jumped from windows and were killed or terribly injured on the pavements below. One or two boys who jumped had their falls brok en bv striking telegraph wires and es caped serious injury, but one large, heavy man who leaped from the third story window on Nassau street struck the New York wires, which nearly cut him to pieces as he crashed through them. The fire stopped atiJfo-TrmeNbuild- The heaviest losersin mqnevjMre O. B.

Nothing approaching an accurate statement of casualties can yet be given as the bodies of the dead were quickly carried away to differ ent places and the wounded were hur ried to hospitals where some after wards died. Many deeds of heroism were performed by firemen and citi zens, and two colored boys excited en thusiasm in two different localities by presence of mind and bravery, which resulted in one case in saving five and in another three workmen, whose es cape seemed hopeless. SaperotUiena Gold-Seekers In Georgia. Columbus (Ga.) Enquirer. Yesterday we were informed that the three cranks who are digging for the hidden treasure near Eufaula are about fifty feet below the surface and are still confident that they will soon be rewarded for all their work. They have been thus digging away for more than two weeks and about their work cling many superstitious ideas. They have drawn a line around the mouth of the well which they call the charmed circle, within which they will not talk for fear the gold of which they are in search will sink deep er in the earth. They have paid the owner of the land for the privilege of making a hole in his earth and are now, possibly, only working to secure their money's worth. Their drooping hopes, however, so it is said, were revived Saturday by the find ing of a email lot of gold, and so they are continuing work with renewed en ergy. It is said that several thousand peo ple have visited them since they began their foolish labors. A Financial Panic in Dublin London, Jan. 29. The Observer's cor respondent at Dublin says : "There has been another and larger failure at the London Stock Exchange yesterday. It is expected that two or three large will fail during the present week unless assistance is offered: them. There also have been one failure in the foundry business and one in the building busi ness, with liabilities of 60,000 and 15, 000, respectively. There is quite a lo cal panic and business is at the lowest ebb. Tradesmen are endeavoring as far as possible to collect debts, but as the debtors are mostly landlords there is no possibility of a settlement for months to come." A Colored Preavcner AHanlnatsd, Clinton, La., Jan. 31. Mai shall Smith, a colored preacher, on Caruth ers plantation, was called to the door on Thursday might and shot McKee and Singlebury, white men, were ar rested on circumstantial .evidence and imprisoned.

Vance, from the District committee, reported the original bill to punish selling and ad vertising bf lottery tickets in the Dis trict of Columbia. Windom, from the committee on Foreign Relations, reported on the reso lution requesting the President of the United States to transmit all corres pondence between the United States and diplomatic agents accredited to the Republic of Mexico and Gautemala since January 1st, 1881, and any other information in his possession touching the relations of the United States with each and both of the said countries or their relations with each other.

Morgan granting the right of way over public lands in Alabama, and oth er lands in said State in aid of the Chi cago Air Line Railroad Company, and for other purposes. At 1.20 the Senate resumed consider ation of the Sherman 3 per cent. bill. Vest submitted a modification of his amendment, but the Senate at 2.15, af ter a discussion in which Hawley and Ingalls were the principal participants, rejected the entire Vest amendment ayes 28, noes 82. The discussion then proceeded upon Plumb's proposition for a reduction of a definite limit to redemption. Plumb withdrew all the clauses of his amendment except the one direct ing the use of surplus revenues in ex cess of $100,000,000 for redemption pur poses, and the discussion was confined to this Dronosition. Davis, of West Virginia, suggested a modification which was accepted Dy Plumb so as to apply $100,000,000 of the reserve to the redemption of the four and a half per cents., when due, in ad dition to three and a half per cent. bonds. Plumb's amendment was then agreed to, ayes 33, noes 29. It is as follows : "That the Secretary of the Treasury shall use all of the funds now held in the treasury for the redemption of U. S. notes in excess of $100,000,000 in re demption of the bonds of the United States, such redemption to be made in not less than three instalments, and said sum of $100,000,000 so left in the treasury shall not be increased ordi minished except in redemption of Uni ted States bonds.

Orth, of Indiana, spoke upon the reso lution and in the course of his remarks cast so much ridicule upon Robinson for his speeches that the latter lost his temper and rose to several points of order, which, were overruled. Orth finally yielded to Robeson, of New Jersey, when Robinson attempted so persistently to gain the floor, saying he could not out bawl the gentleman from New Jersey; that the Speaker was ob liged to threaten Kobinson with the at tentions or tne sergeant-at-Arms. The resolution was finallv adopted. Prescott, of New York, gave notice that he would, Thursday next, call up the apportionment bill for considera tion.

ONE EXPERIENCE FROM MANY. I had been sick and miserable so long and had caused my husband so much trouble and expense, no one seemed to know what ailed me, that I was completely disheartened and discouraged. In this frame of mind I got a bottle of Hop Bitters and used them unknown to my family. I soon began to Improve and gained so fast that my husband and lamiiy thought it strange and unnatural; but when I told them what had helped me, they said, "Hurrah for Hop Bitters 1 long may they prosper, for they have made mother well and us happy." iue juuiucr.
