LTndcr this , caption the Xew
York Sun oi a late date publishes
an expose of the cadet business
in Congress. It tells us the Sun
is a staunch Republican paper,
and therefore must be good autor
ity that when the military com
mittee first began to investigating
the cadetsl dp sales, the carpet-bag
members held a secret meeting.
They resolved if there was to be
an investigation, such investiga
tion should begin among the lead
ers, who are making their thou
sands and not among a few power
less members who now and then
take five hundred dollars. At
this meeting resolutions were pre
pared, aed we are sorry that their
length excludes their publication
in our columns at this time, but
below we give the public, from
the same influential journal a syn
opsis of the whole. The leaders
hearing of the resolutions, were
thrown into intense excitement.
They shall not be introduced, said
they. ll2Vu's introduction v:iil he
the political death warrant of any
man udio shall stand un and oti'cr
them" "The? will hill the Repub
lican party.'''' Such exclamations
with threats of ostracism of any
Republican introducing them, at
once squelched- them. Said a
member of Congress: "A carpet
bagger receives five thousand dol
lars, pays it over to build a frced
man's school house and is debarred
from his seat in the House while
the President receives ten thousand
dollars froia A. T. Stewart which
contribution enables him to make
twenty-five thousand dollars, from
the sale of a house which belonged
to Air. Bowcn, and 3Ir. Stewart is
called to tho secretaryship. It is
damnable. It is unbearable. Must
Ave submit ?
The Sun further adds that the
resolutions were prepared in a
room full of southern members,
among whom were Dockery,
HaysLash, Buck, Butler, Shelden,
Dewccso, Boles, Hays,' Bowen,
Cobb, Xewsham, Dox and Whitte
more, and were to have been read
to the House but were suppressed.
The substance of the resolutions
were as follows :
"That A. T. Stewart subscribed
a large amount to the sum raised
to purchase for Gen. Grant the
house which was afterward sold
to Gen. Sherman, and that it was
partly on this account that Stewart
was afterward named lnT Gen.
Grant as Secretary of the treas
ury "That Gen. Buttcrfield was very
active in raising a purse of 105,
000 to be presented to Gen. Grant,
and as a reward for Ins kindness
was appointed United States sub
treasurer in Xew York
"That Judge Pierrepont, ap
pointed district attorney for the
southern district of xsew York,
contributed 820,000 to aid in the
election of Gen. Grant.
That before his apppointment to
a seat in the Cabinet, Mr. Hoar
made Gen. Grant a present of a
That Sidney Vvebstcr, the son-in-law
of the secretary of state, is
the attorney in this country of
Spain, and that "as such has receiv
ed as much as 819,000 at one time
for services rendered.
That Gen. Grant sold his gift
house in Washington to .Mayor
Bowen, for 810,000, but canceled
the sale, when lie found that he
could sell it for 805,000 to some
Xew York gentleman, who want
ed to present it to Gen. Sherman,
and, that, in order to reconcile
Bowen to the loss of the profit he
could have made on the house,
Grant agreed to let him have the
control of government patronage
in the District of Columbia,"
The other matters referred to in
the resolutions of the scalawag and
carpet-bag members arc not so fa
miliar to the public, but the charg
es to which we' have specifically
referred have been made so often,
and arc strengthened by so many
circumstances one sort and anoth
er, and the public cannot help be
lieving them true. When rogues
fall out honest men get their dues.
It is much regretted that the au
thors of these resolutions were not
permitted to carry their little
scheme of investigation to an end.
The revelations resulting from it
would have been a fine contribu
tion to the history ot the times.
They would shown, too, that we
have an executive and a Congrcs
that are not wholly above the sus

There are dark hours that
make the history of the brightest
years. For not a whole month in
any of the thousand of . the past,
perhaps, has the sun shone bril
liantly all the time. And there
have been cold and stormy days
in every year. And the mists
and shadows of the darkest hours
were dissipated,- and fitted heed
lessly away. The crudest of the
ice fetters have been broken and
dissolved, and the most furious
storm loses its power to alarm.
What a parable is this of human
fear, of our inside world, where
the heart works at its destined la
bor; Here, too, we have the
overshadowing of dark hours, and
a cold blast chills the heart to its
core. But what matters it ? Man
is born a hero, and it is only by
darkness and storm that heroism
gains its greatest and best devel
opment and illustration ; then it
kindles the black cloud 11to a
blaze of glory, and the storms
bear it rapidly to its destiny.
Despair not, then. Mortifying
failure may attend this effort and
that one, but only be honest and
struggle on, and it will all work
well. Uxch an ye.

How Consumption May b3 Cured.
Tho first announcement to a pa
tient that he or she has the con
sumption, is often like a death
knclh The vacant stare, the pale
cheek, and the convulsive sigh, in
dicate a shock of the most profound
character. Indeed I have known
persons to swoon away and re
quire the most active exertions to
restore them. And yet it is not
true that consumption is necessari
ly a fatal disease. In point of fact
it is not so fatal as many cases
which prevail in every community
and excite no rcmaik. Consump
tion results from perverted nutri
tion. Instead of that pevf--ct as
similation essential to sound health
there is an elaboration of the nu
tritive fluids, which leads by in
flamatory action or other processes,
to the disposition hi the lungs and
other tissues of crude material
known as tubercle. Persons pre
disposed to consumption or living
under circumstances which lower
vital energies and prevent the nu
tritive processes, are those in whom
this afiectionmiost frequently ap
pears. It follows that there is no
specific for consumption. It is not
curable by medicine; on the con
trary, its fatal issue is more often
hastened by medication.
For the encouragement of pa
tients, and to illustrate tho course
of fife most likely to restore vigor
ous health, a condition incompati
ble with consumption, I usually re
late cases that have come under
my observation. The following is
one example among many:
"A young medical friend, hav
ing a hereditary tendency to con
sumption, began to realise at first
its well-marked symptoms. It pro
gressed rapidly toward a fatal ter
mination. The concrh, emaciation
and hectic betrayed his condition
to the most superficial observer.
Alarmed at this condition, but
dreading to yield to the conviction
of his friends that he was the vic
tim of this disease, he refused to be
examined or even to talk on the
subject. At length ho became so
weak and prostrated that he con
sented to have his lungs examined
and on the announcement of
the physician that they contained
large cavities, he fainted, and was
rallied with great difficulty. Arous
ed to a pitch of desperation, he de
termined that he would not lie
down and die, but would betake
himself to out-door life. He ac-
it his entire day on
horseback exercise, sawing; wood,
boat rowing, etc. At night he
slept on a hard bed in an cut-house
through which the winds had full
play. His diet was plain, and but
little cooked; his clot'iimr was
coarse and scant.

The Detroit (Michigan) Tott of
last week, states that a letter
has just been received front a De
troit lady now sojourning in Syria
which seems to shed some light on
the mysterious death of Dr. Liv
ingston in Africa. The writer
made the acquaintance of Capt.
Burton, British Consul at , Damas
cus, a man noted for his travels
both in the Xew Vrorld and the
Old, and in a position to be well
informed as to tho tribes of Cen
tral Africa and Dr. Livingston's
adventures among them. lie says
the Doctor's recent stay of two
years or thereabouts, like other
troubles, had a woman at the bot
tom of it. He was first pursuaded,
much against his wish, to marry a
rude and blustering native
princess, and when afterwards
proposed to leave Mrs. Livings
ton in order to prosecute still fur
ther his topographical investiga
tions, Iris fond father-in-law and
mother in-law interposed such
strong objections that he was vir
tually kept a prisoner, - and thus
it happened that the honeymoon
was so outrageously prolonged.
The Captain says the reason th is
fact has never been made public
is that the Doctor's friends, feel
ing outraged by the transaction,
have succeeded rnnil recently in
keeping it a secret. The letter
adds-that "Capt. Burton himself
married the handsomest woman in
England," so that lie can hardly
be moved with envy toward his
fellow traveler, and as "he speaks
fourteen different languages," his
capac ty for telling the truth would
