to look up the decisions of tbe Supreme

forms us that according to the Supreure

hold office notil August, 1874.
Therefore, next August there will be
no election for Clerks, but for Sheriffs
and other County Officers, members of
the Geueral Assembly, Governor, Lieut.

Attorney General, ice. The present
Clerks hold over until the election in
1874, iu consequence of s tricky clause

The eijuouiicetoeut that Dr. Howard,
an Anuricau cjiigeu, says the IWtou
Post, U to be immediately transported to
a Spanish peual colony in Africa appears
to bare no more effect upon our somnoleuC
Government than has been produced by
bis long iiiearerratioa in Cuba. The ease
of )r, Howard is among the most atroci
ous of the larye number in which Ameri
can eilizens have betu outraged without
interference from the Government which
owes them protection., His accusation is
that of hostility ta tbe Spanish authori
ties, and his conviction, under the rule of
the Volunteers in Havana, was based
upon the finding of a medicine chest, sold
by him some time before, in the hands of
a patriot army surgeon. Upon this evi
dence Dr. Howard has beerr held hi pris
ou for a long time, and now is to be seut
to Africa to labor with the malefactors of
tbe Spanish prisons. It is not necessary
to consider what short work would have
been made wiih the perpetrators of this
outrage had Dr. Howard been so fortu
nate as to enjoy the privilege of British
citizenship, for the contrast'would be too
humiliating. All that can be asked is
that our Administration btl f-
went turn from the all-absorbing busiuess
of fixing up its own renomlnatiou. aud
look after the safety of our citizen's and
the dignity of our nation. While the
President and tbe State Department arr
wholly giren opto personal politics, vi
can look for nothing better than insults
and outrages elsewhere. Wil. Journal.

ALL MAY BE HEROKS
Who aro Heroes? and what constitutes a
Hero? The literal meaning of the word in
modern times, is almost exclusively applied to
those who; through their energy, or talents,
make a great mark in the political world. Ma
lory sometimes says a brave man who died for
a cause, who rought and slew and made him-
self a name by deeds of carnage. But is this !
the true Hero? if it is, few could be such, and
many, very many would not desire It. Another 1
time we find great statesmen called Heroes, 1
men who have lead in the great councils of i
powerful nations and Empires. But the-a are j
not tha only true Heroes. He in wolun a!l
private interest and passion are superseded by '
a spirit of beneficence, making this the one j
a orwng passion of hi aoul, atid inducing him
to relinguish all relish and personal consider
tion, that he may advance the interest of civi
lisation, or relieve the diatrasa of suffering hu
manity, he who in the hour of adversity en
dures with patience and resignation, these tri
als and sorrows with which Omniscience may
see fit to visit him, he who in the midst of
danger, preserves that courage and equanimry
of soul, which can only proceed from a mind
conscious of rectitude, and of having faithfully
performed its whole duty towards Ood, the
Creator, a well as to man, his fellow being;
he in whom there is neither ruccesive exulta
tion in the hour of victory nor depression in
defeat; and he who perceiving his duty, does it
notwithstanding external circumstances, which
Wy h7 a tendency to relax his energies, and
produce a fcriing of discouragement, all rank
among the noblest of Heroes, and deserve the
highest eujagy which may be conferred upon
humanity, Heroes of these classes, hare exis
ted in all ages of the world ; yet there was a
space of tijjjp during which their number was
very small j when wen, guided by evil passion,
were hurried into deed of darkness, violence
and cruelty; when die unregeneraie human
heart, not being guided by a sense of reason
and justice, and not respecting the teaclungs of
Christianity, was wholly given to the devices of
the great adversary of mankind. In ancient
times Heroes true Heroes existed, as proven
by the testimony of the inspired writings,
where we read of those good and true men, the
Apostles of tlirist, who casting from them all
worldly things, went forth to "preach the gear
pel of Divine Revelation "to thus who often
reviled and persecuted them j men who were i
willing to lay down their lives as a sacrifieto
their sense of duty, and such bear the impress
of the truest and noblest of Heroes. What
sublime examples are furnisksd us by the hisr
tory pf all nations, of great and noble spirits
