Iowa is for Blaine.
All the district attorneys in Missis
sippi are Democrats but one.
Fourteen negroes -will occupy seats
in the Mississippi legislature.
Massachusetts and Ehode Island
an the only states which now elect
all state officers and a legislature
Wade Hampton says he doesn't
want to be president either. This
kind of hint seems having quite a
run. ir. Y. Graphic.
Boston women to the number of
700 have registered to vote for mem
bers of the school board; last year
the number was 200.
The Democrats of Iowa are confi
dent they can carry that state if the
Kepublicans in the legislature will
pass a prohibitory law.
The declaration of the Ohio wool
growers for a restoration of the tariff
on that article will trouble such Dem
ocrats as Mr. Hewitt, who has been
declaring for free raw materials.
"A genuine Southern ticket" which
the Fort Scott, Texas Record advo
cates, reads: "For President, Jeffer
son Davis; for Vice-President, Fitz
hugh Lee." That paper seriously
urges the Democrats to nominate this
ticket, which, it savs, "would sweep

An euumeratidn of the voters of
Indiana, just completed, shows an
increase in six years of 41,G74 whites
and 937 colored, an annual increase of

The ticket of the Rochester, N. Y.
Democrat (Republican) is commended
to those uneasy men who are starting
ljooms., etc. It reads as follows:
For president, the best Republican
that can be named; for vice-president,
the next best one."
Soveral Iowa Republican newspa
pers declare that recent estimates of
the weakness of the new state legis

are inaccurats. They say the Pro

The total vote of "Virginia for leg

Terrible Sufferings of Political Prisoners.
A Paris correspondent has for
warded a second letter written in
blood by a Nihilist in a fort at St.
Petersburg. It describes the harrow
ing treatment of prisoners. Prisoners
rot away, and exhale odors as from
dead bodies before life is extinct
The number of those who go mad in
consequence of their sufferings are
daily increasing. Madmen are
strapped down and whipped with
knouts by the keepers, and their
fierce yells resound throughout the
night Many prisoners commit sui
cide. It is said that one woman was
criminally assaulted and then poi
soned. Inquiries into the affair have
been instituted. Rats are the worst
enemies of the prisoners; a woman
with a babe was obliged to be con
stantly on the watch, and fight night
and day to prevent their ravages upon
her child. The use of combs and
soap is forbidden. The prisoners, es
pecially the women, whose hair is
allowed to grow, are literally devoured
by lice. Prisoners who refuse to re
ply to questions are tortured, and
criminal assaults upon women are
frequent The writer especially ap
peals to the civilized world in behalf
of women in the prison, whose situa
tion, he saj's, is far worse than the
Franco and China.
Admiral Peyron, minister of ma
rine, has received a dispatch from
Saigon, stating that the French
forces reconnoitered within two and
a half miles of Bacninh. Admiral
Courbet has reconnoitered the ap
proaches to Sontag on the Red river.
On November 23 the French cap
tured a junk near Hai-Phong, laden
with combustibles, and with seven
men on board. The sub-governor of
Hai-Phong, having been suspected
of collusion with the enemy, has been
sent to Saigon for trial. Admiral
Courbet in a private letter to the
governor of Cochm China, states that
opeiations will shortly begin. He
says, "We are eager to march. An
other dispatch cays that a Chinese
night attack on Hai-Phong has been
frustrated by the French. The Chin
ese advanced close to Hai-Phong and
burned a village. French gunboats
and troops were dispatched to the
scene and the enemy routed.
Pacific Coast Rivers.
Washington, Dec. 9. Pacific coast
congressmen are anxious that liberal
appropriations shall be made for the
improvement of rivers and harbors in
that section, on the ground that they
-are necessary, and will ask for repre
sentation in the commerce committee
or the river and harbor committee,
should such a one be created. Glass
cock of California, will probably be
the choice of slone statesmen, as
Rosecrans is thought to be the prob
able chairman of either the com
mittee on military affairs or Pacific
Cassidy, of Nevada, will shortly intro
duce a bill to provide for the abolish
ment of the territorial legislature of
Utah, and the appointment instead of
& legislative commission of thirteen
or fifteen members, to be appointed
by the president and confirmed by
Taritr Question in Comrres.
New York, Dec. 9. The Sun says:
Notwithstanding Carlisle's published
pohev, the contest on which the dem
ocratic party is now to enter, unless
some decided protest shall come up
from the massesis for the establish
ment of free trade to the utmost ex
tent that is possible in the present
circumstances of the country. It
will be doubted whether any protec
tionist leaning on the part of the
speaker would avail to arrest or de
feat development of this decisive con
troversy, which present democratic
leaders of the house have determined
to bring up. We say, with them, let
the question be taken up earnestly,
and let it be thoroughly settled shall
there be anv kind of protection, or
shall we have a tariff for revenue only?
O'DonncH's Version of the Carey 31urder.
London, Dec. 9. O'Donnell's wife
has come to London to visit her hus
band. O'Donnell's brother writes
from Litterkenny, Ireland, under
date of the 7th inst, stating that
what O'Donnell had determined to
say in court if permitted to speak
was: "Uarev drew n revolver alter a
heated discussion, which was begun
by Carey cursing the Americans,
O Donnell struck the revolver from
Carev's hand, and as the latter was
stooping to regain it, O'Donnell'fired
three shots instantaneously. James
Parish, steward of the Melrose Cas
tle, who testified,, was present when
he fatal shot was hred. He was not
present during the quarrel, but'eame
upon the scene afterward."
Mr. IL O. Devries, Master, Patrons
of Husbandry of Maryland, says: I
tried the wonderful remedy, bt .la-
cob's Oil, on a mare of mine, badly
crippled, and a few applications re
stored her to sonudness. I was at
tacked myself with rheumatism, so
severe it was agonv itself. Three ap
plications of the great pain-cure com
pletely cured me.
