We find the following curious adver
tisement in the Washington Chronicle
of yesterday: Hon. .Salmon P.- Chase
and Associate Justices Nathan Clifford
Gestlemes: I claim all my legal
rights in my purchase of the State of
Maine at public auction at Augusta,
January 5, 1870, to realize a lien I hold
on the Constitution of the United States
for a breach of the fundamental guaran
tees of tie Constitution of the United
States. I hereby forbid the oath of of
fice to be administered by you to
Ulysses S. Grant as President of the
United States, his election beir.g void,
he and the Attorney General havlmr d-
cijnod to accept the deed of the United
rotates which I tendered
a war 01 extermination.
Wars of ex term illation engaged in by
people subjecting commerce and all in
austnai purposes are expensive, even
against me weakest people, and are de
moralizing and wicked, and our supe
riority of 8trengthj and advantage of
civilization should fnake us lenient to
wards the Indian. The wrong already
inflicted upon him should betaken into
account and the balance placed to his
credit. The moral ir jew of the question
should be considered, and the question
asked, cannot the -Indian be made a
ttsefuland productive member of society
Dy proper teaching and treatment. If
the effort is made in good, faifi we will
stand better before tl?e civilized nations
of the earth and in our own conscience
for having made it. ' J . .--
All these things are not to be accom
plished by one individual, but they
will receive my support and such recom
mendation to Congress as will in my
judgement be of service tojearry them
in effect and beg your support and en
couragement, j .
It has been and is Jmy earnest desire
to correct the abuses that have grown
up In tho civil servici of the country.
To secure this reformation, rules regu-

killed. We clip from the Rock Mt.
Mail : We have on our table the tusks
of a boar killed by Mr. Powell, of Ed
gecombe, near Rocky Mount. The
tusks measure 6" inches each, which
beats anything we have yet seen. A
note written by Mrs. Powell's little boy
accompanied the tusks, which we pub
lish verbatim et literatim:
A HOG WEIGHING 325 POUNDS.
a ins gentle swine was a pet hog. II is
name was Flat. His age was 3 years.
He was perfectly gentle from a pig, and
never attempted to fight none of we
children. He had ten mates, but none
so gentle and kind as our friend Flat.
At times he would ramble from home
and get very gant, and when he would
arrive he would put his large tusks un
der the gate and shake it like a strong
man, and if we did not seem to under
stand his meanings he would grunt
aloud, as if to say, " come out children,
I have come to you for refuge." When
his name was called he always grunted.
and when ti e day came for him to be
killed a negro man hit him twico and
just to try him my Uncle B. called him
by name and he grunted as familiar as
when he was standing at the gate. So
I will put this faithful animal's tusks
before the public to look at.
