up to their duty threatening to
shoot dead the first man who
attempted to force an entrance
to the jail. This kind of a re-
ception was more than the
would bi niobbcrs expected. audN
they q'lietly withdrew and aban-
doned the undertaking giving
it up as a bad job.
The Marim says-Trimble
is a bad man he committed a
crime which will aroiue any
people t. e. the killing of Hugh
Lee and Robert Ollinger but it
was a grave mistake in attempt-
ing to inflict summary punish-

placing at datiauce the laws of

his trial according to law and
will be sure to reecive that jus-
tice which the enormity of tlie

and law-loving community.

It is gratifying to believe that

secure the office ot President by
fraud are likely to come to se-
veic grief and have condign

their aiders and abettors coered

It is true no punish-

The condition of the Hon.
Alex. II. Stephens on last Sat-
urday was thought to be very
critical. His physicians enter-
tain no hopes of his recover-
lie was visited by the President
and his son at 5 o'clock. He
talked for a few minutes upon
the political condition of the
country hoped that the worst
was over and that a fair and
peaceable settlement of the mat-
ter might now be arrived at ;
id faith in the ability of the
limisMon to arrange a satis

The great International exhi-
bition which is to take place in
Paris in 1S7S. is beginning to 1
attract attention already. Ar-
rangements are now being male
in France fur the coming event ;
and no doubt the exposition will
be eiy attractive possibly sur-
passing that ot any other coun-
try. as the French arc proverbial

The people are foreif
monarchies of the old wbrld to
relax their holds on the throttle
of humanity. England is more
a monarchy in name than in
fact. The lIone of Commons
is the power behind the throne
greater than the throne itself.
France is a republic an infant
it is true but give her time ;
she will grow to the .symmetrical
stature of a republic after a

no fancy for the cost of gar-
