Yes, it was very wicked of "an exGovernor of South Carolina" to try and "beat" his way over an Iowa railroad, and his wife and son should not have drawn revolvers wheu the party was put off the train. Our esteemed Eepublican eotemporaries were quite right in repreheuding this "chivalrous," "arrogant," "characteristic," "fire-eating" oonduot, but they should not have neglected to say that the ex-Governor was Mr. Scott, a Eepublican ex-Governor. - N.

Government bonds are slightly lower, and the honest workingman who has a hundred or two dollars will improve the opportunity to buy sonie, and when Kearney or some one else tells him about grinding capitalists he will laugh in his sleeve and have some distinct idea of his own on that subject.- N. Y. Ilerdld. Mr. David M. Key's former Democracy got the bettor of his Hayesism when he assured a Buffalo reporter that Democratie success could not result in an increase of the Southern claims awards.
