BlBBY of Arkansas has at last,
however, called a halt. A bill intro
duced by Mr. Blair which
proposes .to add to the
already large pension roll two bun

vigorously opposed by Mr. Bebby.
He took the ground that the sol
diers which the bill intended to re

government, and be held up as an
example the Confederate sojdiers

Northern members of Congreas are
trying to outstrip each other in do

who were disabled daring the wax

'e have received number one 01
the Jlullt tin a tin y or lli 'iro!inu
.' . ;-, til' 1 ii'alt It , published in this
town at the olliee of Dr. Thomas F.
A'.aid. secretary and treasurer. We
are glad to see this beginning, as
the public health is of the greatest
possible consequence. I f sanitation
and medical science save one thou
sand men in a year that would
othet wise have tiled then a great
woik has been done. And yet
science and sanitation properly di
rected, e.ui save to the State every
year t housands who would die ot her
wise. The object of the Jlullt tin is
to gather information upon the
causes of disease, especially epi
demics: the effects of location, em
ployment, etc.. and to distribute in
lot ination as to preventable dis
eases The number before ns con

thirty-live or forty counties, written
by practicing physicians You can

down to nearer the centre and enter
Davidson and you find scailatina.

of pneumonia m February and
March. Go to the centre. Chat
ham has measles, bronchitis, ami
pneumonia. Go northeast of Hal
eigh to Franklin county. There the
health is excellent. Go to Tyrrell,
in the Albemarle section, and you
will tind measles, dipthi-ria and ty
phoid lever. In Warren and Vance
there are no contagious diseases
and the general health is good. In
W ilson the same may be said. Dr.
Spicer. of Goldsboro, makes a re
port that is anything but creditable
to that county and to our civiliza
tion. He said:
"dhe condition ol the jail is
siiameliil beyond excuse. There
are t wenty-lour prisoners confined
in it. and m the day time when
t i-e v have t he run
of both cells and
corridors, aggregating i:,.'lii(i cubic
feet, they have only !t.S cubic feet to
the person, while at night when
they are confined in the four cells,
aggiegatir.g l.loil cubic feet, each
one has only til cubic leet of
This is contraiy to all science
and humanity. -tl)r. .Spicer had
published how many cubic feet ol
air were necessary to health he
wonld have shown at once the hor
rors ot the Goldsboro jail. It reads
like a chapter from the history of
the P.lack Hole in Calcutta to which
the county commissiouersof Wayne
are respectfully referred. If sucb
things are to be in North Carolina
then there is need of another How
aril to become the apostle of prison
The following concerns two coun
ties not far off from us :
"OiiWoif-lJr. W. J. Mont ford,
Ward's mill, reports the health of
the county as being as gootl as he
ever kuew it. no disease of a dan
gerous nature having occurred.
Tin jail, however, i.s in lad condition,
and he sees no prospect of having
it improved soon. The condition ot
the poor house is good.
"iVii(I,T-I)r. W. T. Fniiett. liar
gaw, reports four cases of typhoid,
antl two of hemorrhagic malarial
fever, with several cases of diph
theria antl of pernicious malarial
fever, antl an epidemic of whooping
cough. Malarial fever has prevailed
in the low, marshy portions. He
has found that the month of March
has been peculiar in its tendency
to 'epidemic catarrhal lever,' and
in nearly every case quinine has
been the -sheet anchor' in its treat
ment. There is no jail or poor
house in the county, piisoners hav
ing been confined in Wilmington.
The erection of a poor house will
be begun the first of May next.''

A Demand for Itellgrious Ed mat i on .
There have been frequent meet
ings recently held in New York
City of Protestant divines and lay
men to discuss the necessity of or
ganiziug some machinery for com
bining religious with secular in
struction. It is claimed that the
public schools, while useful in their
way, are graduating millions of
men and women who care nothing
for religion, and whose moral tone
is therefore lowered. The Presi
dent of Amherst College pointed
out the fact that something more
than intelligence is needed iu the
conduct of life, antl that morality
could not be taught dissociated
, i rc mi religion. in mis he was
; doubtless criert. But is the es
sence of religion in any particular
statements ot doctrine.' any creed.

has to encounter, however, the
.criticism, which has been wide
spread fiom the time of his resig
nation of his seat in the Senate
un;,! now. ui, account ol the time
and maimer ot that act. Major
Bacon, who lias been a prominent
. candidate for Governor at tne last
or three nominating conven
tions, a in! made to give way for
reasons oi policy , claims iii.it he is
now- entitled to the nomination, and
he has at his back tiie large ma
joi ny ot they oung men of the State,
who declare' it is time for the young
men to have a show. These young
rncu, u is said, are not so much in
tere.sted in army records, however
celebrated, a.s in the belief that
tht-y have a light to come to the
front and share in political honors.
Gen. Gordon has with him some of
the shrewdest political managers
in Ihe State. It is doubtful what
the result will be. The general im
passion is that if Gen. Gordon
should secure the nomination tor
Governor, his purpose is to make
that a stepping-;, ,t;. tor gutting
back to the Ciiited Stall's Senate.
It is understood that the bill to
levy a tax upon oleomargarine,
which is in charge of the House
committee on agi .culture, will be
put to a vote in the House as soon
, as the opportunity oilers. There
seems to be little if auy douot of
its passage, and w hen it comes to
the Senate, the committee on agri
culture of t hat bot'y will promptly
report it for action. The bill, which
also puts the man .it'act ure of oleo
margarine under the supervision of
the commissioner of internal reve
nue, will, it is said, have the effect
to surround the manufacture with
some necessaiy and wholesome re
strictions. If has been the impression that
the various projects t admit Da
kota or a portion ol it as a Stale
would be permitted to slumber on
the table ol iiie House committee
on Terntoiies. Should this be the
case, it w ill not be for lack of the
most untiring antl persistent effort
on the part of the advocates of ad
mission. All the induence that the
Kepublicans can bring to bear, per
sonally aud politically, has been
ceaselessly exerted in favor of ac
tion, and it is rumored that some
of the House Democrats have been
wou over to the point of consenting
that the House shall at least be
given the opportunity to vote upon
In a political point
of view it is a matter of almost vital
importance to the Kepublicans, for
the admission of Dakota would give
them with absolute certainly two
Senators aud three electoral votes
in the next Presidential election.
It is not iu the least impossible that
these votes might determine both
the Presidential election and the
complexion of the Senate after 1SS7
or 1889. The argunieut used with
the Democratic members whose
aid it is hoped to secure is that as
Dakota has the requisite population
for ;i State, it is neither just noi
right to keep her out. Such an
argument really should not have
any weight, ior the reason that it
is only the politicians who clamor
for admission, the mass of the peo
ple of the Territory caring nothing
whatever about it. as the only
change it would make in their con
ditiou would be to impose the bur
dens of a State government upon
