that all hand feel better, Judge Merrimon ha
been chosen 'Senator for six years to come,
not by the Conservatives,' but by'the Radicals.

white people bf the State of their first choice.

Now, we believe in party discipline in loy
alty to party organization in obedience to the
will of the majority. This requires that the unan
imous support of all the members be given to
the candidate who shall have been first regu
larly nominated by a majority of the conven
tion or caucus having the right to make a nom
ination for the party. Unless such support is
given anrnch obedience to party organization
is observed, it is worse than useless to attempt
to effect anything as an organization, or reform
ation in the Government. If we can not have
harmony and concert of action if we can not
have submission to the will of the majority as
expressed through conventions. and caucuses of
the party, then the so-called conservative party
is a sham and delusion, and t organization
should j at once lie abandoned as a miserable
swindle? We have no patience with men who
are continually berating about the oppressive
measure of Radicalism, and who are yet un
willing to atand by the nominee of the party-
unleas such nominee happens to be his, own
special favorite. But the so-called conservative
party is made up of conflicting elements and
we believe that it is impossible to merge them
without a new organization. We want new and
better men to lead. The people are true and
will not surrender to Radicalism to the ne
groes and carpet bagger if a fvw so-called
leader do turn traitor and attempt to sell them
We are in hopes that Judge Merrimon will
not prove unworthy of the confidence hereto
fore reposed in him by the good people'of this

well, and he can do u good service. We do
not believe that he has changed his polities,

SACRIFICE OF REAL ESTATE.
It ia a Fell known fact that real estate
in this country, put up under a forced sale,
is generally sacrificed little or nothing
being realized from it. 1 here arc reasons
for this, not the. least of which is the in
sufficient notifications given on sale.
Sheriffs, trustees, executors, Ate, hereto
fore have been in the habit of sticking up
tiotice at a few points, generally speaking
in writing, and at points where they fail
to attract public attention, and are read
but byte. Th cousequence is, when
the sale takes place it is attended by a
half a dozen or less people and the pro
perty is knocked down for little or noth
ime because here is no competition.
This is-all wrong and not the intention
of the framers of laars. The owners of
property euff-r by it ; creditors suffer by
it; the State indirectly suffers by it, and
no one gams by it hut a few land sharks
who watch the courts and take advantage
of the misfortunes of their neighbors.
We know of instances where good lands
lave been actually thrown a way, and but
a few wi eki- ago we heard of lauds sold
within a few miles of here for less than
$1 per acre, well worth five times a much
lhis can be remedied to some extent
and justice secured to those interested, if
the Legislature will pass a law leqnmng
Sheriffs and others acting in official capa
citie9 to advertise appropriately properties
coming into tht-ir hands for sale, m some-
newspaper, and where that cannot be done
then by printed poster.
We venture to sav if this he done it
will have a beneficial effect and materially
iucrease the amounts received from lands
sold nnder executions, &c.
We endorse the above suggestion as rijrht and
proper; but we have never said much about it
because some of the member of the Legislature
last year pretended to consider the proposition
to compel execution sale to be advertised in a
newspaper as a scheme to benefit newspaper
publishers. ut we do think that execu
tion sales ought to be adverti.ed in the news
papers, and we don t care wlfether such notices
are given to us or not. e were never a great
favorite with omce-holders.
We fully concur with our esteemed
contemporaries-, and we liopo that the
Legislature will act upon the suggestions
made. They are worthy of careful consid
We would atao suggest the propriety
of a law requiring all public Boards, mu

It recommends th immediate creation of
a board of eonnnisMoneTs to decide on the
amounts to be paid to individuals. It com
pliment Mr. Adams aud Mr. Bancroft tor
their eniiuent services iu the-mutter of the
Geneva and the San Juan Arbitrations, the
d-cis-on in the latter cae leaving the Uni
ted States with nit question as to the d'imu
ted boundaries. In regard to the fisher i.-s
and to our relations with the British North
Americau prov inces, the Presidont says tha.
he has received notice that, the Imperial
Parliairirut and the Dominion Government
had passed laws to catry the provis'ous of
the treaty of Washington into operation, and
he there! re recommends the legislation of
Congress in the eatne direction.
lie speaks of the friendly relations of the
United State with all th government f
Europe. He refers to the Vienna Interna
tional Exposition, and recommend the tit
ting np of two National vessels to convey th
Igoods of exhibitors to Trieste, ar.d that a
proposition be mad to have the next great
Exposition in this country iu lG at th
time of tha Centennial Celebration iu Phila
delphia. He refers to the distiitlxul condition of Cu
ba, and says that no advaocH towards naeifi-
catiou in that Island ha been mad, while
the insurrection had gained no advantages,
and exhibited no more the elements of pow
er, or ai hieved succe than a year ago.
Neither had Spain succeeded in repressing
the insurrection The parties to the strife
were standing in the ram attitude a for a
long time pat. The continuation of slavery
in that I1aiid he regards a am ng the
strongest cause of the continuation of the
strife, and he thinks that the abolition f
slavery and the institution of other reforms
thre could uot fail to advance th restora
tion of peace and order. It was greatly to
be hoed that the present liberal coverument
of Spain will voluntarily adopt that view.
Referring to au relations with Chill i an.l
Japan, the Presid-nt recommend provis
ions for maintaining fair American youth
in each of those countries as part of the de
poiie family of Ministers.
He gives detail of ti e Revenue received
in the past year, and of the reduction of the
amount of ,,ver oue hundred millions of the
public: debt. II expresc a doubt whether
any further reduction intaxatiou is practica
ble for the present, and he recommends that
no more legislation be had on that subject
except to correct errors of omisidou or eom
Mdssion iu the present law until sufficient
time shall have elapsed to prove that it can
b done, and still have sufficient revenue to
meet current expense, pay iuterest ua the
public debt aad provide for the sinking fuud.
He suggests also that the curreuey ahall be
as bimiu a possible brought to a par with
gold. He say that various enterprises will
be brought t the attention of Congress f,,r
the cheapening of trxnstwirt
from ihe West the Abintie searost. and sug
gests that sreps should he taken to gain all
a mi. ante information to t-r.sure equitable
and judicious legislation.
In this connection, he refers favorably to
the proposed route to connect the Mississip
pi valley w ith the Atlantic at Charleston aud
Savannah, by wav of the Ohio and Tennes
see rivers, also to the propo extension of
the Kanawha and James river rat al and
Chesapeake and Ohio caual. ai d to Ihe pro
posed canal around Niagara Fall. He say
that there should be an almost cent iu nous
syaem of land-looked navigation from Maine
to the Gulf of Mexico, uature having provi
ded a greater part of the route, ar.d the ob
stacles to be overcome being within the skill
o engineers. He calls attention to the weak
cess of the American navy, and endorse the
recommendation of the Secretary of the nary

He also reoommend the adoption of the test
