Yv hat has been the action referred
to? A United States district Judge
sitting on the bench of the Circuit
Court, lias seized a State Capitol, bv

created a Legislature by an interlo
cutory order of the nature of an in
junction, and installed that legisla
ture in power bv a limiting them
into the eanifol. past the1 guard of
the United States Marshals, ".hos
orders wore obeyed by those troops
and excluding all others claiming
seats, until that Legislature had keen
seated and sworn. Senator Carpen
ter characterizes this action thus:
"I don't want to go before the
Dooi.ile of "Wisconsin with tin testi
mony of the Louisiana llepublicans
themselves, admitting their frauds in
setting up this Kellogg government

The Forty-second Congress expir
ed at noon Tuesday, March 4th.
Within the last one hundred and
fifty years there have been more
famous legislative bodies than this,
hut we do not remember one more
infamous. There "wore conscientious
gentlemen in the Senate and the
House; but jirimn facie the case; is
against the whole of them, and till

the estimation of the general public,

den of proving that he was not a
The entire term of this Congress
has been characterized by a series of
disreputable transactions which have
no parallel in our history. Wv wont
through all the temptations of the
war without seeing anything so out
rageous as the doing of the two
Houses over which Schuyler Colfax
and James G. Plain have now presided.-
Amid the seething mass of
those transactions perhaps the two
which will hereafter loom up the
most conspicuously and bo the long
est remembered are, first and chiefly,
that though some twenty members of
the two Houses wore proven before
lenient committees of the one House
or the other to have boon guilty of
fraud, bribery, and corruption, and
of double dealing and rank perjury
in vain efforts to explain their offen
ces, not one of them was expelled,
omy two, and they on false pretenses,
were mildly rebuked, while the rest
wore whitened over till their reputa
tions shone again; and secondly, that
after this scandalous betrayal of their
trusts, the two Houses filled utj the
measure of their iniquity by voting
themselves a large iuereV.se" of their
salaries, not excepting the disgraced
members whom even Pen Pntlor
thought so infamous that they ought
to be indicted by the Grand Jury
and sent by the petit jury to thopoii
itentiary. The Forty-second Congress! As
its members sneak home with the
money of the people lining their
pockets, even boys at their marbles
in the streets will point to them, one
saying to his comrade, "There goes
a member of the I'ortv-Seeond Con-
:s!"' and the comrade, not deign
to raise his eves, will respond.

An exchange copies the following
correct and comprehensive answer
to the above question, and urges
every child as well as grown persons
to commit it to memory, to be recited
as often as practicable:
A gentleman is not merely a per
son acquainted with ceitain forms
of the etiquette of life, easy and self
possessed in society, able to speak
and act and move in the world w ith
out awkwardness, and free from hab
its which are vulgar and in bad taste.
A gentleman is something beyond
this; that which lies at the root of
all his pleasing is the same spirit
which lies at the root of every Chris
tian virtue. It is the thoughtful de
sire of doing in every instance to
others as lie would that others should
do unto him. He is constantly think
ing not indeed how he may give
pleasure to others for the mere sense
of pleasing, but how he can show-
respect to others how he may avoid
hurting their feelings. When he is
in society, he scrupulously ascertains
the position and relations of every
one with whom he ovmies in contact
that he mav give to each his due
honor, his proper position. He stud
ios now no may avoid touching in
conversation upon any subject w hich
may needlessly hurt their feelings
how he may abstain from any illu

"Chewing gum," said the store
keeper; " why, we sell more of that
than of candy, though the sale isn't
quite so good as it was a little while 1
"Is it good to cat?"
"Oh no; only to chew," said the
man; "tin-re's a spicy sort of taste
to it; and then folks get in the habit
of chewing, and feel uneasy without
something in their months. Some
folks think it makes the teeth white."
"Ah! I'll ask the doctor about
that ;" and so I did.
"All nonsense!" said the doctor,
" folks say the same thing about to
bacco. The fact is that the habit of
chewing excite the salivary glands,
causing an unnatural flow of saliva
glands, injuring the mouth and teeth,
and cheating the stomach. So far
as the mouth is concerned, it is just
as bad to chew gum as tobacco, and
in fact it actually leads to it."
"But gum is clean, doctor; it has
a pleasant, spicy taste, and tobacco
is dirty stuff."
"What do you suppose gum is
made of?" said the doctor, with a
"1 know," said I, triumphantly;
" the manufacturers told me. Gum
tragacaiith, gum arabic rosin and
"Just so," said the doctor; "now
read this," and he gave me news
paper slip, and went away while I
read: "The fat used in the manu
facture of gum is almost wholly ob
tained from dead animals, cats and
dogs picked up about the streets and
alloys, old omnibus horses, iu fact,
any kind of re fuse fat."
My dear ruminating animals, there
is something to add interest to the
pleasant, spicy taste of your cud, as
you muse and meditate over it! I
hope you will medftate to such good
purpose that the trade in chewing
gum may be ruined forever.
Condition of the South. The
London Xeirs has a valuable and in
structive letter from a tourist in the
Southern States of this country,
w hose Views may be regarded as im
2artial, an. I certainly boar the im-
2rcss of intelligent observation. He
reports that the whole South is suf
fering for want of money to repair
its deserted plantations and broken
commerce, that the taxes are every
where in arrears, and that they are
so exorbitant as to ruin the small
landholders. " But," he adds, " cap
italists will not carry their money
into communities where rascally
legislators seize so much and give
so little in return." Herein he
touches the vital spot of the whole
difficulty. He describes the negroes
as working, after their fashion, just
enough to keep starvation from the
door, in isolated settlements. He
2ictures a well known weakness of
the 2lantation hands when he says
that " whore they have no 2''gs r
poultry themselves, they 2robahly
livo very near somebody who has,
nnd that answers just as well." The
Southern Legislatures are described
as ' a daily burlesque upon govern
ment monstrous than the extrava
gances of Christy's Minstrels." He
speaks of the situation as deplorable
and melancholy, but thinks it onlv a
natural result of the great social rev
olution, and believes that it will be
righted "as soon as the government
improves." The question is, how
soon the government will ini2rove
at the present rate? Vide Louisiana.
