GoveruorKossuth'sdecidedlyexpressed opinion, as to the duty and policy of
non-interference in such questions. From
the time of the utterance of these in
famous sentiments, Kossuth was re

country with abhorrence. Wm. Lloyd
Garrison published an ode "To Louis

abolitionists is vigorously expressed,

DTEHED AT POSTOFFJCE AS SECOND-CLASS IATTER
SATURDAY, MAY 4,1889.
Intelligence has reached this country
of the failure of the health of Louis Kos
suth, the Hungarian statesman, who in
1857, after an unsuccessful attempt to
change the political condition of Hun
gary, which resulted in his being obliged
to seek refuge in Turkey, was brought to
the United States in an United States
vessel and regarded as a guest of the
Nation. On account of his extreme age,
the death of Kossuth may be expected
shortly, and, as he created a great sen
sation in this country while here, the
the news of that event will probably be
followed by long and glowing eulogies of
the illustrous Hungarian. Lest some of
our Colored journals should, unthought
edly, be led to waste some of their elo
quence in that direction, we beg leave
to recall to mind some incidents of Kos
suth's visit to the United States. While
here he made a great number of speeches
and in the most glowing terms, lauded
the very men who had just passed the
infamous Fugitive Slave Bill as "men
whose glory it it? to acknowledge the
laws of nature and nature's God." Ths
speech was made at a Congressional
Banquet given in Kossuth's honor at
Washington. In a published address to
the people of the United States, Kos
suth said: "My pnnciple is, that every
nation has the sovereign right to dis
pose of its own domestic affairs without
any foreign interference, I therefore,
shall not meddle wilh any domestic
concern of the United States." At a
later date at a citizens banquet in Phila
delphia, he said: I avail myself of this
opportunity to declare once more, that
I never did or will do any thing, which,
in the remotest way, could interfere in
the matter alluded to (American
Slavery). I have declared it openly
several times, and on all and every op
portunity, and I have proved to be as
good as my word." Further, when Mr.
Adolph Gyurman, who like Kossuth
was a Hungarian exile, who had become
editor of the Demokratischer Volks
freund in New York, said in the first
ssue of his paper: "The slavery ques
tion. With regard to it, we consider the
'compromise no settled solution, but a
provisional law, for the abrogation of
which, at least so far as the extradition
of slaves is concerned, we will employ
all the means which a public organ can
employ." Kossuth at once published a
letter to the people of the United States the enUre speech of Hon. Fred Doug
reprobating the course of Mr. Gyurman
..e at Washington, D. C, on the occa
as "injurious to th interest.o. his ownlass

PRESIDENT HARRISON AND THE VIR-
Under the above caption, the Virginia
Lancet, in a recent issue, presents some
views which are pecnliar indeed to the
person who is at all familiar with current
aflairs. And this inference gives a very
charitable aspect to the article in ques
tion. Among other things, the editor
of the Lancet tells us that William Ma
hone should be consulted, by the Presi
dent, in the distribution of Federal
patronage in the Old Dominion, and that
such consultation had actually taken
place in connection with the few
pointments already made in the state.
Now, we want to ask, why should Ma
hone have a hand in dispensing offices
in Virginia under Harrison? He has
openly insulted the Hairison Blaine
wing of the Republican party and this
fact is well known. But more than this,
Mahone himself defeated the Harrison
electors, in Virginia, in the late election,
by his shameful conduct towards Mr.
Langston, who was the regular Republi
can candidate for Congress, in the
Petersburg district. Then again, why
should Mahone be made a leader, and
be called a Republican leaderthough
he is nothing but a Confederate Read
justerof a State, a very large part of
whose Republicans are Colored men,
when he hates the black man
or to use his (Mahone's) words,
when he dislikes to see Colored men
thrusting themselves forward for promi
nent places? But, lastly, Mahone is an
unscrupulous demagogue and his ques
tionable methods (and this is James G.
Blaine's exact language) unfit him ut
terly for the respect that should be
plentifully accorded an associate of
We do not propose to banish Mahone,
there are perhaps, some traits in him
that may be used to advantage, by the
Republicans of Virginia. However, in
charge of the Republican party of the
State, he is certainly a dangerous man
and the quicker the Old Dominion finds
out the better it will be for all con
No, gentlem jn of the Virginia Lan
cet, Mahone as a leader is practically a
dead duck and he will not give a great
