OFFICIAL f APER FOR BENTBN COuJiTY VirUii ht sent a military force giat illr! oyster dredgers. Nine-tenth of the business fail Br f due to speculation! outside of tba rgpilsr business. Dtrmg the month of February it is iroJ thftt the public debt was rodawrd OYer $9,000,000. It is disappointment to New York politicians that President Ar thur did not cat off the oiEoial neck of Collector Robinson. Thera seems to have been no Con gress of late years more free from jobs than the forty-seventh. The professional lobbyists fared badly. It is claimed that the annual pen sion payments are now double the interest on the public debt and still a possibility of adding a fear more million to be paid to pensioners. - . Tba next U. S. Senate will be com posed ot two Independents thirty ight Republicans and thirty-six Democrats. The Independents are Mahoneand RiddWberger of Vir ginia. Ireland, would improve her con dition with fever police barracks and more school hoaxes, more school masters and fewer constables. Or ganized associations for murder makes-barracks and police necessary. Three hundred cit'xe-ns of New York, representing tl,000300,000 of capital, have made known to Gav. Cleveland that they regard the "Five eent Fare Bill" with grave appre hension as a breach of faith upon the part of the State, and an attack upon the rights of the people. The Gov eruor vetoed the bill The right of the electors to vote up oadown, and early and often, an article for the constitution, to pro hibit the manufacture and sale of pints, wine, beer and cider is gen erally conceded by the people to be one of the inalienable lights contem plated by the Declaration of Inde pendence, and included in that clause relating to the pursuit of happiness. Tbe Republican Congress saved the country from a serious monetary disturbance, and from a leap in the dark, by extending the National Bank Act, against the solid opposition f the Democrats, who now, ot course, will have to carry out their policy of destroying the National banks, and put their substitute in place of it. The recent Democratic minority in Congress which opposes every act of the Republicans, ha since become the majority, and must take up the responsibility of undoing what it op posed, and of substituting a policy consistent with their former actions; bat consistency with them in tbe past has been unknown. Republicans will observe with interest the formation of Democratic opinion, which should now take plage, preparatory to the impending time for leginlativc action. The amount now paid by the Gov ernment in pensions is doubli the in terest on the National debt. There was more paid out in pensions last year by ten per cent, than during the entire period from the foundation ot the Government to the breaking out of the rebellion. Since 1861 there have been $562.'741.170 67 expended for this purpose, and the appropriation-for the coming year is $100000, 000. This is equivalent to a per capita tax of 2 50 upon the entire population of the country. It is probably a larger sum than- was re quired for the pay of the army (not its maintenance) at any time during the war. The Democratic element in Con gress which recently opposed tbe Republican work ot modifying the war tariff, and voted in mass against the act the country will look to the present Democratic house for a tariff poiicy they being now in the majot- ity. The Democratic element in the late Congress which oii the one side endeavored to reduce the whisky and tobacco tax in order to preserve a high tariff, and on the other side to preserve a large internal revenue in order to reduce the duties which tax consumption without revenue will now have to be fonsrbt out amonsr themselves to give them any tariff policy at all and in the mean time the country and especially Republicans will wait with much cariosity to ob jrrt their action?. Of the staruhips lor.t last year, 16 were American and 192 British, but it must he runembered that these countries own vessels in a similar r r ., I" For every passenger killed by railroad accidents during the Mas year nearly tour and a half millions have been carri-d safely, showing that this mode of travel is not so dangerous as boom imagine. New Jersey hits enacted that in civil suits a verdict agreed to by nine of the twelve jurymen shall be received as the decision of the whole number. This will not only increase the number ot true bills but some what cripple tho business of the "pro fessional juryman," The legislature of Minnesota has passed an act which raises the license fee for retailing liquors from the p res ult minimum of $25 a quarter to a minimum of $200, and from the present maximum of $100 to a maxi mum of $500, with a proviso that it shall not be less than $100 a quarter in cities having a population of 20, 000 or more. On all sides increase of license Zees is being accepted ss the practical method of dealing with the liquor question. UBSgiJtT GSA63. Mesquit grass keeps green the year round, is very hardy, takes root quickly a mere scattering of the seed over the snrtace of the ground being sufficient makes good hay for cattle, I've seen horses eat it with p parent relish, and kills out fern. Upon the latter point a great many adverse opinions are held, but I am speaking from experience and can show any incredulous reader a small patch wb'ch I sowed two years ago in mesquit, which then was quite thick with fern bat is now entirely covered with mefquit grass and also other patches in process of transfor mation. Most farmers who have given it a fair trial are of the same opinion. It grows well on hillsides requiring but little soil to propoxate it. CoRnE-SPON'DBNT. Oregon and Pacific Railroad. A recant dispatch frmn San Francisco, says: A gentleman prominently connected with the management of the Oregon Pacific railroad arrived from the east Saturday, where he has been engaged foi the past two months in matters ulating to the construe-'- tion of the proposed road. In conversation with an Orego.ilan correspondent he stated he was unable to give any detailed account of the conternpla fed work or the result of his labors in the east, as arraugements had not boen finally consummated. It was not improbable that within the next two weeks matters would aasume definite proportions so that work will be commeccod on short order after the receipts of certain plans. At present the only thing he could state ad visely is that every important developement are tinder consideration, and when finally decided upon a flank movement wonld be made and work pushed on to speedy conclu sion. A asbiegrsm.frora London is anxious ly awaited, which would determine the com plexion of matters to a considerable oxtent. He leaves for the east this afternoon.

Poiygasay. The doctrine of polygamy aa taught and practiced by the filth and senm of humanity in UiehWs doubtless gaining ground deapitc the long -winded consideration of congress, says the Prinevilie AVwa. Its growth ond pread seems to be as certain a fate; find the "saints" pay -no heed to tbe acts of the gov ernment regarding their behavior, but act right ou in the capacity of panderers. The pillars of this degenerate institution have become too fiirmly fixed to be'.fcorn down r.ml destroyed by ordinary legislation. The canse has become an obstinate, if uot al arming .one, and only the severest rstraini will gever its pertinacious huld upon iveak humanity. Blind zeal if uot an evil iteclf is productive of evil results of worst charac ter, which fact is made plain, we think by a gtar.co at the rotten intntions of Mormon ism. And if the suppression of a great evil is conducive to the welfare and seemly be havior of a state or nation, why dally long er about this wholesome sacrifice of virture honor, principle and common decency? The government in its great solicitude for ihe welfare and protection of religious liberty, has tolerated this inexcusable depredation too long. Because the vile practice of poly gamy is mantled with the false cloak of wor ship, is only another and better reason why it should be suppressed. If severe, measures must be instituted to restrain it, we cannot see any policy in delaying the matter. On the contrary, to delay longer what is so es sential to the common laws of propeicty, is we believe, to forget our national pride, and loose prestige in the eyes of all civilization. GErfEKAI.
