Ex-Senator Mahone of Virginia is
one of the happiest men in the coun-
ry. He has succeeded in getling the
republican National committee to take
a hand in the political muddle in his
State, and the result is that Bilk
Mahone is more firmly seated' as the
republican bore in that State than ever,
This result was not however obtained
without an effort, how great an effort
may be judged from the fact that the
sub-committee of the National com
mittee, composed of Messrs Quay, Dud
ley, Clarkson, Fressendm and Hobait
was in continuous session one entire
day and night, and afterwards had a
long consultation with Mr. Harrison.
The onlv thing that .the anti-niahone-ites
get as far as can be seen .on the
surface is a share in the federal offi
ces in the State, and some people here
are uncharitable enough to sav that
is about all they wanted. At any rate
the decisions of the committee in Ma
hone's favor was closely followed by
the appointment of Col. J. B. Brady
to be Collector of iuternal revenue for
the second district of that state. Col
Brady has been about the bitterest op
ponent Mahone had in the state. His
salarv will be fc-KUUU a year whicn is

weeks on the charges of immorality
in respect to the female attaches of the
Asylum, cruelty to the unfortunates
under his care, and a misappropriation
of the public property in his charge,
has been acquitted of all thce accusa
tions by a vote of six'to three.
We have no right to condemn the
verdict of the Trustees unless we could
show that it was wrong. And while
it may be admitted that it was possi
ble for the Board to err, the probabili
ties are all in support of their
decision. They had all the facts in
the case before them, and from these
made up their verdict. The presump
tion is that they ar3 conscientious
men and rendered an honest decision.
Certainly the contrary should be made
to appear before accusing them eith?r
of error or corruption. We therefore
accept the decision as sustained by th
facts in the c;;se.
A i l yjt w'.iiL' tYu tn iv b.'$ the co.i -elusion
of many who have wa'chtd the
progress of the trial, there are also
some who unhesitatingly denounce it.
Ihey believe Dr.Grissotn is guilty, es
pecially on the charge of immorality,
and they aa unhesitating demand that
he should be removed. The sentiment
here, is adverse to the continuance in
the Institution of rrv and all who
were in anywise connected with this
great scandal. It remains with the
Trustees to decide what may be done
in this direction.
The Raleigh News and Observer
speaks of the decision of this c;ise as
a copy of which hfis been sent to in
nnder the name of John T. Caine.
The report is fuvorabl on all the mat
ters usually considered when a Terri
tory applies for. admission as a State.
In the case of Utah there was in ob
struction found in the religion of the
people, or rather in their acceptance
and practice of polygamy. The report!
shows that Utah is willing to prohibit
this crime (sis it is held to be by the
laws of this country), and enter the
prohibition in the Constitution under
which she comes into the Union, and
make it unrepeatable except by the
sanction of the President of the U. S.
Altogether the report is favorable to
the admission of Utah, and unless the
facts as presented by the committee shall
be disprove.!, it is not likely that Utah i
will be refused admission a very great
while, unless some party or politic-il mo-
ive shall be found for holding her in
ins associate! themselvew together i

A colony of Italians contemplate
starting a vineyard on a large scale
near Durham. They will probably
attempt to conduct it by the same rules
of management learned in the vine
yards of Italy. The late Dr. Crone, of
Stanly county, a native of France, a
man of learning and intelligence, and
a grape-grower of considerable repute,
told the writer so'me years ago that the
European treatment of the vine would
not answer for this country. That the
vine here would not submit to the
limiting restrictions to which they
were subjected in Europe, but that
with an irresistible tendency to spread
and reach out, ibey had to be allowrd
more room. However this may be,
the learned Doctor held one other opin
ion in regard to vine culture here
which experience is disproving every
day, and that was, that this country
can never successfully compete with
the vineyards of Europe. This opin
ion was predicated on the ravages of
an insect in his vineyard which he
named the J2gira. It was a serious
pest with him, and destroyed many of
his vines; but the writer, who has for a
unmber of years given attention to
grape-growing ou a small scale, and
been observant of the success of many
other persons, has known of but one
vine outside of the Doctor's vineyard
which was tit all troubled by the insect
named. The grape flourishes in the
entire Piedmont section of Virgiuia,
North and South Carolina, and Geor
gia, so that, on the whole, we think
the Italian colony not only has no
thing to fear, but much to encourage
them tq go ahead with their proposed
