It is to be hoped that Mr. Cleveland will not confiscate this new vessel for his ducking excursions, but permit her to remain in the mud service at home. The grand jury presented fifteen indictments charging twenty- eight men with murder committed in the levee troubles at New Orleans. All of the indictments contain the clause: "And other persons whose names are as yet unknown to the grand jurors, being workmen and laborers in the occupation of rolling, placing and stowing compressed cotton on board of vessels at the port of New Orleans."

" That is, it then fixed what should constitute one dollar, the same thing that the mathematician did when he fixed one figure from which all others should be counted. Congress fixed^the monetary unit to consist of 371 1-4 grains of pure silver, and provided for a certain amount of alloy (baser metals) to be mixed with it to give it greater hardness and durability. This was in 1792, in the days of Washington and Jefferson and our revolu- tionary forefathers, who had a hatred' of England, and an inti- mate knowledge of her designs on this country. " rhey had fought eight long years for their independence from British domination in this country, and when they had seen the last redcoat leave our shores, they settled down to establish a permanent government, and among the first things they did was to make 371 1-4 grains of silver the unit of values.

I now read it from the United States Statutes: " 'Dollars or units, each to be ot the value of a Spanish milled dollar as the same is now current, and to contain three hundred and seventy-one grains and four-sixteenth parts of a grain of pure, or four hundred and sixteen grains of standard silver.' "If you omit the words referring to the Spanish milled dollar, it will then read: 'Dollars or units, each to contain -Í71 grains and 4-7 6 parts of a grain of pure silver.' "This is the statute that fixed the unit and is the only statute on the subject till we come to 1873. "Now, what you referred to is this. It is in section 9, and reads as follows: " 'Eagles—each to be of the value of ten dollars or units.' "And on the ratio of 15 to 1, fixed in the same act, this made an eagle contain 247 grains of pure gold, or 270 grains of standard gold. You will observe that the law does not say, a...

He could visit ail the schools of the county, help arrange courses of study, awaken more interest in county institutes, talk to the pupils and help the teachers. One of the best teachers in the county ought to be elected to the position, then he would have a real and deep interest in our public schools and a vital connection with them, which is all but impossible with the county judge, a great deal of whose time must necessa- rily be devoted to other matters of public interest, such as the courts of the county, public property, public roads, etc. Public education is of sufficient importance that all populous counties should have its executive head.
