COU, H. JONES, Editor A Proprietor XanssD at thb posT-ornm at Cburlottb, N. 0., as 8ooin-CLAaB mattmb.1 THURSDAY, FEB. 16, 1882. ITIESSENGEUATVD CJLEKKM. The impression prevailed some time ago when Senator Brown, of Georgia, offered a resolution in the Senate for the appointment of a clerk for every Senator, that the Georgia gentleman was indulging in a little bit of humor, but when Senator Morgan yesterday urged the providing of a messenger for each Senator there wasn't a bit of fun in it, for he was in downright earnest, and we gather from his endorsement of Brown's resolution, or amendment to a resolution by some one else, that Brown was not joking either, but in dead earn est, Mr. Morgan in furthering his de mand for messengers imparts a piece of information that will surprise some people, and that is that so many of our honored Senators are martyrs to duty . and are killing themselves with work, doing twenty-five or thirty times the amount of labor that members of the lower House are called upon to do. We knew all along that the boys in the House were having a pretty good time, but we were not aware of the fact that the select circle in the Senate were being sacrificed in that way on the altar of duty, and mercilessly worked to death. They seem, however, to stand the martyrdom pratty well notwithstand ing, and seem to be perfectly willing to go right along and continue to die that way, for we have not yet heard of any of them resigning that they might escape death and live. ' If it comes to this, however, and amounts to a question of dead Senators and live messengers and clerks, by all means let Mr. Morgan's plaintive appeal be list ened to considerately, nor be made sport of, for this country could not get along without its great Senate. Dead Senators worked to death would be a greater calamity than one hundred and forty odd fourteen hundred dollar messengers and clerks. Let this mor tuary havoc cease, though it may cur tail the business of the Washington un dertakers, and if clerks and messengers can save the lives of our Senators, why let the saviors be summoned to come fortii and that quickly, before another victim falls crushed beneath the weight of work. As hard worked and poorly paid a? they are if they were selfish they would resign, but they patriotically and hero- ially stick to the post of duty, and face threatened death with a devotion and resolution trulv admirable. Not only that but when the first term of duty expires they are always willing to magnanimously sacrifice themselves again and again and go right along killing themselves with hard work for their dear country. We never fully realized what a fearfully rough time , our Senators had, and how cruelly they were worked until we read Mr. Mor gan's remarks. Hereafter we shall re gard the poor United States Sena tor with more tender compassion, and extend to him that heartfelt sympathy to which his hard lot entitles him. Talmage's Tabernacle, it is estimated, will yield an income of $25,000 this year. Ireland has 576,000 holdings, 50,000 of them less than an acre mere town lots, Of the rest, about 150,000 tenants are excluded from the benefits of the land act by the size of their holdings, and of the rest 300,000 G2,331 have already made application to the Land Court In 970 cases decided, the average reduc tion in rent i3 about 25 per cent. Chas. F. Kring, of St Lous, is a hard man to hang. He was convicted of the murder of a woman in 1875, but by the manipulation of smart counsel has sue ceeded in getting five trials, and now the Supreme Court of the United -States has set aside the decision of the Su preme Court of the State, which gives him another chance for bis life.

Telegraph : "It is pretty much in politics as it is in astronomy, When a one-horse star cuts loose from its own home circle to cruise for itself it generally brings up with a crash in the system which attracts it most ; and when an ambitious Democrat cuts loose from his party he is independent only during the time it takes him to land with a splutter among the Bepubli cans." It is now believed that the reason why so many Democratic Senators op pose the repeal of the arrears of pen sions act is because they think the He publicans only sprang the question of repeal to trap them. The idea is that if the Democrats favored the repeal i would so prejudice the soldier vote against the party as to lead to its de feat in 1884. It was the fear of offend ing the ex-soldiers and losing their votes prevented serious opposition to which the bill when it passed, and the same thing now prevents its repeal. non.

Interesting-Marriage in Pintvl le To the Editor of the Observer: The evening of the 14th February, 1882, will long be remembered by the citizens of Pineville as a very interest ing epoch in her history the occasion being the marriage of two of her most accomplished and popular young peo ple. By 7 o ciock p. m. a very large au dieDce had assembled in the Presbyte rian -church to witness the marriage which was to take-place at half-past 7 o'clock. Soon the merry marriage bell rang the hour which immediately pre ceeded the entrance of the bridal party in the following order: Miss Annie Grier, Mr. J. 5. Miller, Miss Mattie Grier, Mr. W. M. Morrow; Miss Maggie Barnett, Mr. H. E. Morrow; Miss J una Shell, Mr. W. E. Younts; Miss Alice Grier, Mr. J. J. McCreieht ; Miss Beu- lah Younts, Mr. E. W. Russell ; who, proceeding down the two aisles of the church, crossed to opposite- sides in front of the pulpit Following after came the contracting parties, Miss Em ma M. Grier and Mr. Junius A.Russell, who took position immediately in front of the pulpit in full view of and facinc the audience. It was indeed a beauti ful sight and one which will not soon be forgotten. A handsome arch ot evergreens spanned the hall, depending irom which was a miniature horse shoe wreathed in laurel encircling the silver letters J. A. R. and M E. G. Under this beautiful arch stood the bridal couple, and as we looked upon their pure and in nocent young races, we almost imagined ourselves in fairy land, and we kuow that many a silent prayer went up to God that nothing might ever mar the joy and happiness or these pure young nearcs. The ceremony was beautifully and impressively performed by Rev. John Hunter, assisted bV Rev. L.. She! . Much credit is due Mr. J. II. Ross and Mr. J. H. Barnett. for the very happy ana pleasant manner in which they dis charged the duties of ushers on the oc casion. Ohl this was all nice, so nice But to many the next step in the pro gramme was more splendid when the invited guests were ushered into the hospitable mansion and were seated around the bountiful board of Mr. Ar thur Grier, the father of the bride Something nice was expected, but the supper was too good for the average epicure. While no attempt was made at unnecessary display or extravagance tne repast was simply magmheent and everybody went away satisfied that it was good that they were there. The bridal presents were both numerous and valuable, unmistakable evidence of the very high regard entertained for the young couple. A splendid dinner was given yester day by J. W. Morrow, Esq, uncle of the groom. We here leave our young friends with many congratulations, and bespeak for them a life of happiness and pleasure. P. All llarmonloafelf Adjusted and a II and Shake on it, Richmond, Va Feb. 15. The ru mors which have prevailed since yes terday atternoon to the effect that Sen ators Smith, of Alexandria, and Riddle- berger meditated a hostile meeting were given their quietus to-day in the Senate chamber by Smith who, rising to a question of personal privilege, and referring to the differences which oc curred the day before between the Sen ator from Shenandoah and himself, frankly confessed that he left the house on that occasion with no friendly feel ings. Since then he had been assured by his friends and his own cooler re flection conhrmed their opinion, that ne snouia nave been satisfied with the disclaimer made by the Senator. He was now satisfied that Riddleberger had said all that he (Smith) had a right to exact from the gentleman, and he took this occasion of expressing his re gret at tne onensive language he had used. Senator Riddleberger said that ho had meant on yesterday to say everything that would be satisfactory to the Sena tor irom Alexandria, lie never meant to do less than that which he deemed would be satisfactory to him and he nopedtne senator now felt as kindly towards him as he (Riddleberger) felt Lowarus tue oenaior. The gentlemen then met on'the floor and cordially shook hands. Arretted for Shooting- a Hog- Thief. Petersburg, Va, Feb, 15.

It appropriates one hundred ana ntty thousand dollars in compensation for property connected with the publish ing house of said book agents in Nash ville wnicn was tanen or destroyed Dy the United States in 1864 or at any oth er time. The resolution offered by Call was re ferred to the committee on foreign af fairs directing the secretary of State to open negotiations witn Spain for re mitting the tax on cattle imported into Cuba from the United States. A resolution reported by Piatt from the committee on contingent expenses to provide a messenger for each of the committees on finance, postpffices, pen sions claims, judiciary and engrossed bills, was discussed. . The aDsolute ne cessity of a provision to facilitate com mittee business was generally coincided n, and on motion of lngaiis tnedistr c: committee was included in tberesolu- ion. Morgan offered and advocated an amendment providing a messenger for each Senator who is not a chairman of a committee. He said that by reason of the onerous character of their duties many Senators were literally working themselves to death. Their labors being from 25 to 30 times as great as those devolved upon members of the House. He thought the resolution introduced by Mr. Brown for a clerk to every Sen ator not already supplied witn one as committee chairman, ought to be pass ed. Several memDers attacked tne res olution as calculated to increase the already too numerous army of useless employees of Congress. Morgan s amendment was rejected yeas 10, nays 28, and the resolution as modined, on motion of Piatt, was pass edyeas 33, nays 15. It directs appoint ments to be made by the sergeant-at-arms upon selections made by commit tees, providing that the messengers so appointed snail not be paid tor that part of the year during which the Sen ate is not in session, and regulates their pay at the rate of $1,400 per year. i ne senate tnen, at 2 o ciock, look up and temporarily passed over the regular order the anti-polygamy bill, and Call, on leave, addressed the Senate in sup port of the proposed amendment to the pension arrears resolution, declaring in lavor or pensionsto survivors of the Indian wars prior to 1845. He said that every argument in favor of the grant ing and continuance of pensions to sol diers oi the late war applied with equal force in behalf of the disabled of the Mexican and Indian wars. At 2:25, the anti-polygamy bill, to amend section 5,252 of the Revised Statutes of the United States, in refer ence to bigamy, and for other purposes, was taken up and amendments pro posed by te committee on the judiciary were read. lne sections and amendments were agreed to up to the fifth section, which authorized the President bp grant am nesty to classes of offenders guilty be fore the passage of the act of bigamy, polygamy of unlaw! ulco-habitation, on such conditions as he shall think proper. The wholesale exercise of the par doning power contemplated 'in this section was objected to as trenching upon tne legislative prerogatives, but aner some discussion the section as amended and the remaining committee amendments up to the 8th section were adopted. The 8th section provides .for the con duct of elections, registration and can vassing of votes, etc., in a territory until provision for the same is made Dy legislative assemDiy provided in a bill by the apppointeesof a board of five persons, to be appointed by thePresi dent and confirmed by the Senate, all or wnom snau not De memDers or one political party, etc. Brown moved to amend so as to re quire that not more than three of the board shall be of same political party. Several of the members debated this section until 4.40, when a motion for executive session was lost, yeas 21, noes 29, and after several efforts to se cure an adjournment for avote on the bill, interspersed with motions Ito ad journ, it was finally agreed that the measure should be proceeded with im mediately after the morning business to-morrow, and the debate upon it clos ed at 5.30 p. m. Upon this understanding, Edmunds in charge of the bill, consented to an adjournment. Coke, on leave, introduced a bill, ap propriating $100,000 for continuing the improvement of Galveston harbor, Texas, At 5.40 the Senate adjourned. House. The morning hour having been dispensed with the House resum ed the consideration of the apportion ment bill and Hubert, of Alabama, continued his speech m opposition to any increase4in the membership of the House. It was said that large bodies had the advantage of Deing more difficult to corrupt, Dut he contended that more members would bring more schemes. Just in proportion as thejnembership was increased the members would lose their individuality and perspnal"f e- sponsiDinty, ana wouia reiy upon com mittees. A corrupt man instead of en deavoring to corrupt the Mouse would apply himself to the committees The committees could not be made large enough to put tbem beyond the reach of temptation. He favored a constitu tional amendment limiting the number of representatives.

Humors of trouble in the houses here yesterday were not confirmed and are thought to to be without foundation. " Bald monntaiu on a Slide. Washington, Feb. 15. A special from Asheville, N.

The horror was as great but not so long continued as four years ago when it was expected -that Bald Mountain would become a volcano. No explana tion is offered, but many speculations are made. People are afraid to venture upon close examination. Senator Hill's Tongue. PniLAUELPHiA, Feb. 15.
