LOTHAIR'A WESLH ESTATE,
A tMarquis with $5,000 a Day.
(From the New York World.]
Olive Logan and her inseparable Wirt
Sikes have arrived at Cardiff, whither
the -have been sent by President Grant
tdoccupy the consulate. Olive is de-
lighted with her new home and its sur-
e" roundings. Ifyouhaveread "Lothair "
you know who the Marquis of Bute is;
if you know who the Marquis of Bute
is, you are acquainted, no doubt, that
the Cardiff is the greatest of his posses-
sions. For almost literally he owns
this seaport town, Many persons here
own houses they dwell in; an infini-
tesimal number ownthogroundon which
they are built. Almost all hold the
land on a ground rent, through a lease,
more or less long, from the Marquis of
Bute, and princely as is the income
which the young noble at present en-
joys, it must yearly become larger as
these leases expire, and the land falls
into the estate for reletting. Many of
the leases soon now to revert to Lord
Bute, were originally granted for the
term of ninety-nine years, and the
ground is perhaps a hundred-fold more
valuable now. The lordly pair are not
at the castle now, but are in the thick
of the fashionable season at London.
There, too, they possess a splendid
home, as well as a seat in Scotland.
Lady Bute is a Roman Catholic. Lo-
thair, after his conversion, could of
course, wed none other. She belongs
to the.great house of Howard, one of
the ablest and one of the richest of
English aristocratic names. Her father
gave her $500,000 on her wedding day-
a bagatelle, indeed, to Lothair, whose
income is $5,000 a day. Although the
Marquis has been of age some years, he
cannot obtain control of his estate until
a son is born to him. Lady Bute has
had a daughter, but "it's of no conse-
quence," of course, in view of its sex.
Great swarms of grasshoppers are flying
about in the vicinity of Omsbaha, chiefly
going south. No damage 7t.

iOW TO GET RID OF THE BUR-
Tilden, in his letter of acceptance,
makes some remarks about the pay-
ment of the national debt which Re-
publican editors have, singular
enough, failed to notice ; but his idea
will commend itself to the common
sense of every one else. He makes the
true statement that general misgovern-
ment and the mismanagement of tie
financial affairs and commerce of the
nation injure its credit, and thereby
compel it to pay a higher interest
for its loans. From this he deduces
the argument that were the country
better governed (the Republicans them-
selves acknowledge the need of reform),
the nation would not have to
pay so high an interest for its
money; and that a reduction of only
one per cent. in this direction, in-
vested at the low rate of four and a
half per cent. per annum, would pay off
the national debt in thirty-eight years.
Tilden sees in economy the way out of
our present difficulties, and it is likely
to prove the most practical, most pop-
ular, and, in fact, the only way. The
fact that a reduction in the amount of
the Mint appropriations has necessi-
tated a corresponding reduction in the
.salaries of that department, is certainly
a hardship to the employees,
but does not argue against the
necessity of the reduction. There
cannot be economy without reduction
of expenses. Government employees
have been fancying that their numbers
would always be as great and their sala-
ries as high as they have been; but the
%,urden has been too great-the nation
ii obliged to get rid of some portion of
it-and hence "hardship." Had the
administration always been eo.;.nri-
cally conducted, neither officials nor
the people at large would have felt the
pressure of hardship. ose who in-
augurated the reign of extravagance are
responsible for the suffering; not those
who,eto prevent much greater suffering
in thelt re, insist upon a return to the
long-abandoized path of economy.
A NUT FOR MR. HAYES.
Will our Republican contemporaries
cease for a moment their fruitless ef-
forts to find a stain upon Mr. Tilden's
record, and devote a little attention to
the rubbing out of an unsightly blot
upon the war record of Mr. Hayes ?
Rev. W. W. Harper, of Hartford City,
West Virginia, feeling annoyed by cer-
tain stories afloat in his neighborhood
relative to a transaction in which he
and Governor Hayes were concerned
during the war, has published the fol-
lowing explanatory card :
HArTFOrD CITY, West Va., June 26,
1876.-In the last issue of the Point
Pleasant Weekly Begister, the editor asks
of us an explanation in relation to some
money with which Governor Hayes had
to do. I am glad an opportunity has been
afforded me of giving a statement of this
war incident, from the fact that both my-
self and also General Hayes have been
maligned and misrepresented in the mat-
ter. The following are the facts : In the
Summer of 1864 our brigade, commanded
by General Hayes, was ordered to Monoc-
acy Junction, in Maryland, and while
lying there a soldier belonging to the
Twenty-third Ohio was tried for deser-
tion and condemned to be shot. I was
then the chaplain of the Thirteenth West
Virginia regiment, and the only one in the
brigade. This unfortunate man wanted
to see a chaplain before he was executed.
I was sent for, and had some conversation
with him in relation to the condition of
his mind, etc. He then told me he
had some $400 in money and two watches,
which he wanted to leave with me.
He said he had no friends in the world
that he knew of, except a mother, and
that she was somewhere in Virginia, but
did not know where, and if I could find
her out to send the money and watches to
her, and if not, to keep them myself.
The man was shot, and immediately after
the thing was over, General Hayes sent
for me to come to his headquarters. I
reported. He inquired of me what the
man gave me. I told him. He examined
the watches and gave them back to me,
and the money he said he had decided
belonged to the Government, and I gave
it to him. As to what he did with it I
am not prepared to say, but the above are
the facts, and if the editor of the Register
wishes to know the further history of the
money, he must interview the Governor
himself. W. W. HANPEE,
Late Chaplain 13th W. Va. Vols,.
THlE SCHOOL QUESTION.
A Republican contemporary builds a
massive editorial with this sentence for
a corner-stone: "The school question
is the most serious question now before
the people with the single question of
the currency." Were there any school
question at all, we should place it be
fore that of the currency, because
ignorance and financial mistakes bear
the relation of cause and effect; but we
cannot see that there is any "question'
upon the public schools. Both of th
great parties are as decided as possibh
against any division of the school
fund, or any division of it tc
sectarian or political purpoi25
and with that the school business end
so far as its introduction into the pros
ent campaign is concerned. The Re
publicans pretended, before the opening
of the campaign, that the Democracy
was in favor of some division or misap
propriation-of a kind which the Re
publicans did not very clearly define-
and the Republican press began to tall
about the school question," th
"school issue," etc. The St. Loui
Convention, the letters of the Demo
cratic nominees, and the unanimous
voice of the Democratic press, prove'
that the Republicans had had no basi
for their school accusations. Never
theless, the -Enterprise and one or tw
other papers, in which reiteration doe

INSTRUCTING THE MASSES.
It is interesting to watch the ebb
and flow of the struggle between Tur-
key and Servia. The pleasure of learn-
ing that the Turks completely defeated
the Servians at Tehsbschyvich on Mon-
day, and that, on the same day, the
Servians achieved a decisive victory
over the Turks at the same well-known
village, is such as cannot be described
in mere words, though we rather like
our amusements With a slight spice of
vowels, the Sclavonians and the tele-
graph operator permitting.
The amount of geographical knowl-
edge attained by a careful perusal of
the European war telegrams is not to
be despised. There is only the slight
drawback that the knowledge, so ac-
quired, is certain to be forgotten imme-
diately. It is, however, in the matter
of strategical instruction that these
telegrams, transmitted from the eastern
borders of Europe at so much expense,
are most valuable.
The ignoran& of military affairs
amongt*e masses is great, and the in-
telligent operator at Vienna or Bel-
grade, taking pity upon the Western
barbarian, lets him into the innermost
thoughts of great military chiefs, and
unfolds to us the principles of modern
warfare. For instance, a telegram re-
ceived this morning, addressed to the
VIRGINIA EVENING CHRONICLE, and
sent all the way from Belgrade, says :
General Tehernayeff is understood to have
decided, in the event of defeat, to fall back.
The ignorant reader might have im-
agined that, in such a contingency,
Tchernayeff would advance; or that he
would request the Turks to hold on a
while till he got his second wind; or
offer them $2 50 to let him choose a
better position ; or claim a foul ; or
accuse the Turkish Pasha of having
been a Copperhead during the war of
1854; or raise the school question on
him; or. assert that lie was only in fun
when he opposed the Sultan's forces.
But all these suppositions, it seems,
would have been wrong, and we now,
thanks to the operator at Belgrade,
know that if Tchernayeff be defeated
he will fall back. Thus does the tele-
graph supplement the printing press as
the great popular educator, and the
noble work of universal instruction goes
on its glorious way.

Belgrade, says a correspondent of the
London Daily New,-, is a long and strag-
gling town upon thi i-ot anud down
eahi slipe (if a rocky ridge. The
castle, a. uprb ruin, occupies an angle
where the Save and Danube join. All
up the hillside winds a labyrinth of
walls-vastly embarrassing no doubt to
an enemy, but somewhat bewildering
to a garrison. The river front is pro-
tected by fortifications, with half a
dozen covered ways to aid the defense,
and a citadel above. In -he days ol
Prince Eugene such a fortress must
have been terrible to attack; but we
are reminded how the art of war haE
changed by a glimpse of those two mon-
itors moored in the river and at the
disposal of Austria's representative.
They could batter this ancient fortress
to shreds where they lie. The walls ol
it indeed are only brick, and a Baby
lonish garden of shrubs and flower
hangs upon each yard of bastion. A
picturesque effect is produced at thi
sacrifice of utility. But it matter
little. Belgrade is protected from thi
water side by moral defenses.

and the afflicted generally that they have re-
opened a branch office at Virginia City, where
they will continue to treat chronic and private
diseases with unparalleled success.
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,
Remember that procrastination is the thief of
COME AND BE HEALED.
It matters not what your troubles may be,
come and let the Doctor examine your case.
It will cost you nothing for consultation, so
please call and satisfy yourselves whether the
Doctor understands your case. If he can cure
you he will tell you so ; if not, he will say so;
for he will not undertake a case unless he is
confident of effecting a cure.
Who may be suffering from the effects of youth-
ful follies or indiscretion, will do well to avail
themselves of this, the greatest boon ever laid
at the altar of suffering humanity. Drs.
S. & Co. will guarantee to 'forfeit five hundred
dollars for every case of seminal weakness, or
private disease of any kind or character, which
they undertake and fail to cure. They would,
therefore, say to the unfortunate sufferer who
may read this notice, that you are treading upon
dangerous ground when you longer delay in
seeking the proper remedy for your complaint.
You may be in the first stage-remember you
are approaching the last. If you are bordering
upon the last, and are suffering some or all of
its evil effects, remember that if you obstinately
persist in procrastination, the time must come
when the most skillful physician can render you
no assistance; when the door of hope will be
closed against you; when no angel of mercy can
bring you relief. In no case have they
failed of success. Then let not despair work
itself upon your imagination, but avail yourself
of the beneficial results of his treatment before
your case is beyond the reach of medical skill,
or before grim death hurries you to a pren- ture
There are many of the age of thirty to sixty
who are troubled with too frequent evacuation
of the bladder, often accompanied by a slight
smarting or burning sensation, and a weakening
of the system in a manner the patient cannot
account for; on examining the urinary de-
posits a ropy sediment will often be found, and
sometimes small particles ot albumen will
appear, or the color will be of a thin and milk-
ish hue, again changing to a dark and torpid
appearance. There are many men who die of
this difficulty, ignorant of the cause, wihiec is
the second stage of seminal weakness. br, -S.
& Co. will guarantee a perfect cure in all such
cases, and a healthy restoration of the genito-
urinar orgnDR. H. J. S ER,
