assistant secretary of the treasury. I went to
the treasury department and found McCor
mick was out of town and would not return
for ten days. I returned to Matthews' room
and he wrote for me a note addressed to Gov.
Smith, appointment clerk. Bmith said he
would take me over to the White House and
see the President. We called at the White
House, and Bmith had an interview with
Hayes at the White House. I was not present.
He came out and said the President had in
structed him to give me some satisfactory
position on political considerations. took
me to the treasury department, gave me the
blue book, and told me to pick out such a
position as I wanted. then said I should
have something which would be satisfactory
to me. I rode that day to Baltimore with Sen
ator Matthews. asked me if I was satisfied,
and I told him I was and referred to Gov.
Smith's statement it was right.
A couple of days after this Smith informed
mo the best position which he could give me
v. as an inspectorship in some custom house,
cither Philadelphia, Baltimore or Boston,
which was from $3.50 to $ 4 a day. I told him
that that was not what had been promised me
and not what I had a right to expect, and that
if I could not get a better position than that, I
would go back to my old duties as a journalist,
and that I preferred going back to them any
how. I said I did hot care personally, that the
only feeling I had in the matter was that cer
tain promises had been made me which had
not been fulfilled, and I proposed to see they
should be. Smith then wrote Matthews to the
effect that he had made me no definite prom
ises except that I should be provided for in a
After my interview with the President about
the appraihorship I stopped at Cincinnati and
in the first paper that 1 picked up I found a
report of an interview of a colored deputation
from Louisiana with the President, in which
the President promised to retain Ringgold.
Q. Di you say at ything to Matthews
A, I did some of the tallest swearing Mat
thews ever heard in his office.
Q. What took place in reference to that let
ter of Matthews?
A. I came on to Washington and told Sena
tor Matthews 1 thought an effort was being
made on the part of the Democrats to get up
an investigation, and that information was be
ing furnished by some of the boys in Louisiana
and that I thought that the best manner to
stop the arrangements waB by Dr. Darall's ap
pointment as collector of customs in New Or
leans. I told him that Darall understood
pretty thoroughly the men who ought to be
provided for, and he would do it. requested
me to have Darall call upon him which I did.
Darall wiote mo and afterwards told me pcr
bonally and BO did Matthews, they should work
up a sentiment in Darall's favor, get all the
recommendations they could from Ne Or
leans and Louisiana, and get all the recom
mendations they could from Darall's colleagues
in the House, and they would give Matthews a
pretext for asking for Darall's appointment as
collector of customs at New Orleans.
Q. What part were you to play in that?
A. Matthews asked me whether in case Dr.
Darrall was appointed I would be satisfied and
whether I would be willing to deliver all the
papers in my possession and give up all my
claims in the administration, which I agreed
Q. What papeis were referred to in any of
your conversations with Matthews?
A. lef cried to all the papeis in my pos
hcsbion. That evening I spoke of the Sherman
A. To Matthews.
Q. Who mentioned the Sherman letter first,
you or he?
A. I have no distinct recollection about the
matter. I was after Mrs. Jenk's had called on
Senator Matthews in connection with it.
Q. Did she profess to hold the letter?
A. She proteased to hold the original letter.
Q. How do you know she professed to hold
the original letter?
A. She told me herself in the presence of
other parties sho had the original.
Q. Did she exhibit it to you.
A. No, she claimed she had it at Ne Or
leans and she offered to sell it for a certain

TERRIFIC AND FATAL CYCLONE I N MISSOURI.
S T. LOUI S. MO., Ju ne 2.A special from Rich
mond, Mo., to the Times says a terrific cyclone
passed over that place about four o'clock this
evening, levelling to the ground over half of
the buildings in the town. Over 100 houses
were totally destroyed, and the loss to property
will reach one quarter of a million dollars.
Whole blocks were completely swept away, and
the debris scattered for miles. The storm came
from the southwest, passed to the
northeast, and was pteceded by a heavy
fall of rain. Trees were uprooted and
carried through the air like feathers,
as waB also fragments of houses, and in fact
everything the storm struck. The Shaw house,
a long brick hotel, was demolished and the
inmates buried in the ruins. So far as known
the following persons were killed: Mrs. Rose,
Mr. Rading, Miss Prouch, James Campbell, Mr.
Hamilton, Mrs. Holman, Mrs. Alice Vaught,
Thomas Bohannan, Mary Joy. Th following
were mortally wounded W. A. Donaldson,
Mr. Paul Wertz. Fred Leheman. Severely
wounded: John Anderson, Marvin Ball, J.
Hines, J. Rashbary, Florence Ford, Bo Afult,

Burgess, John Ballard and wife, Mrs. Perry,
Jacobs, a child and two children, Geo. Warner,
Riley, Holman, Mrs. Osborn, Sa Powell,
Mrs. Hughes, and a number of others. Horses
and stock of all kinds in the track of the storm
were swept off the face of the earth. A train
load of citizens of Lexington arrived to render
aid and physicians from all surrounding
tjwns have been summoned to give medical
attendance to the wounded. A patrol has been
detailed to guard the town.
S T. LOUI S, Mo., June 2.The Times has ad
ditional specials from Richmond, Mo., which
says the cyclone of yesterday was the color of
steam, and at times the funnel shaped cloud
would break or open in places, and emit what
appeared to be black smoke, then closed to
gether again, and with increased pace con
tinued on the march of destruction. I first
approached slowly, then faster perhaos
than a man could walk, then much
faster, levelling everything in its path with the
ground, producing almost complete destruc
tion. Th sound it produced was infernal re
sembling that of a great cataract. Debris of
the city has been found fourteen miles awav
A perfect panic prevailed for a time, but order
and comparative calm was restored for a while
and the killed and wounded provided for. Th
unharmed houses of citizens were thrown open
at once forth reception of homeless sufferers
and every attention possible was given to them'
Amidst the wails of women and children and
the groans of the dying, strong men shed
tears to witness the general destruction and
the death and suffering of relatives and
friends. Th mayor of the city' has called
for aid for those whose homes and property
have been destroyed, and telegrams have al
ready been received tendering assistance. Th
funeral of several of the victims took place
this afternoon, and the Masons of Lexington
were present anist in the interment. The
remains of Capt. Jacobs were found this morn
ing buried in the ruins, and Judge
Donaldson, who was reported wounded
last night, is dead, making, so far, fifteen deaths.
The deaths of several others are momentarily
expected. A least 40 persons are seriously or
mortally wounded. Many strangers are here
rendering all the assistance possible. Stories
from the country in the track of the storm
northward are that the growing crops are bad
ly injured, trees prostrated, stock killed,
bridges blown down, but no houses are reported
destroyed, or lives lost.

BERLI N, June 2.A strong escort of mounted
police barely sufficed to protect Nobeling from

was a rumor current that the assassin's name
was Ludwig and that he was a religious fanatic.
This, however, seems to be based on the fact
that a file of the Ultramontane journal Ger
mania was fouund in his room. A late
talegram Bays Nobeling confessed he cherished
murderous designs for eight days, because he
considered the Emperor's removal would be a
public benefit. declared he favored social

A Couple of Boughs Tied and Arrested
There was a row of small dimensions at Lake
Como yesterday which caused a good deal of
unpleasantness among the visitors to that pic
turesque and popular resort. A fellow named
Kaufman, from Minneapolis, and a companion
named Ed. Lynch, of St. Paul, both well known
vagabonds and rowdies, filled themselves as
full as they could hold with the worst quality
of budge, and proceeded to make themselves
generally disagreeable. They amused them
selves at first by insulting all the ladies
they happened to meet, and then tried
to pick a quarrel with the men. This
sort of thing was not relished very well, and
finally everybody was glad to see them run
against a snag. Special officer Knauff happen
ed around, and seeing how things were shapi ng
took upon himself the task of arresting the
roughs. With the assistance of several citizens
he managed to secure them both, and binding
them hand and foot with a two inch rope, they
pitched them into a wagon a nd brought them
to the police station, where they were caged for
the night. They will probably sober off in
time to interview Judge Flint this morning and
explain their conduct.
Fire Last Night.
The alarm from box 7 last night was occa
sioned by afire originating in a barn belong
ing to Henry Justus, wagon maker, and situ
ated on Fifth street near Exchange. The
barn was destroyed, as was also the adjoining
one occupied by John Hammon, hack driver.
The latter belongs to the Bobert estate, of
which Cochrane & Walsh are agents. Mr.
Justus was not insured, and he estimates his
loss, including the building and lumber
stored in the barn, at $200. Hammon says
he loses by the fire $ 150 in hay und oats.
Th. origin of the fire is not known.

music. "O 6ing unto the Lord." Response
"Apostle'B Creed." National Anthem'"My
country 'tis of thee." Male Quartette"How
sleep the brave who sink to rest." "The sweet
by and by."
The introductory prayer by Mr. Dana was
most appropriate and impressive. The sermon
of which the following is an epitome was lis
tened to with the greatest attention:
Hebrews 10 ch. 32 v. (F. C.) "Bu call to
remembrance the former days."
There is far more involved in a suggestion
like this than at first we realize, and vastly
more is to come from heeding it than many
imagine is possible. Th divinity that pre
sides over to-morrow is called hope and it is
indeed true, that the human heart, always
prizing to-morrow more than yesterday, has
written the most of its poetry in the name of
hope. I is said, when the seven classic phil
osophers were holding a banquet together, the
question was asked of them, "What is the most
universal possession?" Tl reply agreed upon
was, hope. But this worship of futurity, with
all of us almost a passionate propensity, should
not make us oblivious of the past, or remand
memory to a constrained silence, disallowing
to her the exercise of her sacred function, that
of recalling to mind former days, We may not
find memory wearing the same loveliness that
belongs to hope, but what is wanting in bloom
and smile may find compensation in wisdom
and pensiveness. I is after all what we have
done that is noble and pure which abides
with us as an inwrought, and
an invoking blessing. Every to-morrow is born
out of to-day, and yesterday's struggles ought
to have taught us many valuable lessons. Thus
does the past become to us a faithful teacher,
for plainly does she show us, what may shame
and what may gladden us
THE USE OF AN HISTORIC CONSCIOUSNESS.
It is owing to these tormer
days, that we have this, that life which
has a present and a future, but no past, is
sadly superficial. This which is outside and be
hind the individual, in the noble Rtay of his
family, or school or nation's life, which gives
him dignity, and the sense of greatness. You
never really know a man, till you are acquaint
ed with his antecedents, for what has been,
colors and shapes not unfrequentiy what is to
be. stands consciously the highest amid
his fellows, who represents a proud past. I is
an idea of heathen origin, that the spirits of
all whom a great warrior slays, pass into his
own being, to increase correspondingly his per
sonal power. .Never, however, seems that
thought so true, as when you consider the life
of nations. The spirit of their great-achieve
ments pass into their life to exalt and expand
it. All that a nation ever did, or heroically
endured, it still possesses, and the world con
cedes to it the highest honors of its history,
and pays it full reverence for its past, even
when its present may be devoid of what spe
cially inspires respect. Wh ever visits
"The valleys and hills of sacred Palestine,
Dear land of heavenly thought and glorious
The center and glory of all realms,
The earthly home of God's incarnate Son,"
without receiving a freBh impulse to holv liv
ing, from the historic associations of Beth
lehem and Olivet, of Galilee and Jerusalem.
Who is there but feels ennobled, if back of him
stretches a line of distinguished ancestors if
there are red-letter days in the annals of the
household he* represents, witnessing to deeds of
daring and lofty life. Hence we cannot despise
the years behind us, for they make the sub-soil
out of which our character and history are to
grow. Carlyle voiced but the judgment of
mankind, when he said of us Americans, prior
to our late civil war, "the title to be a common
wealth or nation at all, among the Ethnoi of
the world, is, strictly considered, a thing they
are now striving for, and, indeed, have not yet
done much towards obtaining. What great
human soul, what great thought, what noble
thing, one could worship, or loyally admire,
has been produced in America?" No much,
indeed, could be produced, when the back
ground of former days was limited. I fact,
England's power and prestige grew out of her
antiquity. Her universities are famous for
their hoary histories, their annals running back
through centuries, and their list of scholars,
like unto David's tower, built for an armory,
whereon hang a thousand bucklers, all shields
of mighty men. But now more than a hundred
years have furnished us with somewhat of an
The nation has passed through trials that
have given strength to its muscle, and wisdom
to its counsels and has wo victories which
have increased the pride of its past. When we
make thought excursions into our eventful
past, recall the unparalleled struggle which
raged through four weary years, the two mil
lions and a quarter of men arrayed in arms,
who fought battles before which the bloodiest
fields of European warfare seem inconsiderable,
and against all precedent, and in the face of
all probabilities suppressed a gigantic re
bellion, and the barbaric and ^entrenched in
iquity of slavery, and occasioned the festival
of last Thursday, when solemn pilgrimage was
made to bestrew the graves of the hundreds of
thousands who died in defending the country,
then is it we feel, what has been so aptly
termed the "tide swing of a great historic con
sciousness." THE REMEMBRANCE OF OUR INDEBTEDNESS TO
THESE FALLEN HEROES.
It is the recollection past days that serves to
keep green the memories of those whose suffer
ings and achievements secured us our broader,
better liberties. The world, it has been said,
is upheld by the veracity of good men they
make earth wholesome. How little do we re
alize what we owe to those who have lived
noble lives in by-gone days. Every ship that
comes to America got its ehari from Columbus.
Every novelist is a debtor to Homer. Every
carpenter who shaves with a fore-plane borrows
the genius of a forgotten inventor. All the
yesterdays of virtuous living work their health
into us, and even the best history resolves it
self into the biography of a few brave
and earnest persons. What do we
not owe to that group of patriots

And shall we forget more recent heroes, on
whose graves scattered all over our land, rest

War memories are therefore a precious bequest.
They make our Union the preserved boon of
sacrificial serving and suffering. The names

THE COST OF NOBLE LIVING.
These recalled former days teach also most
impressively the old, but ever needed lesson.
I is no easy task to live bravely and well. Never
since man had a place on earth was it other
wise than most difficult for him to rise out of a
low and selfish life. To-day is the greatest
need confessed to be. that of a
society living in honor and virtue, loving
God and all mankind. Hence has
there always been room for noble men, and for
the exercise of every civic virtue. The pa
triot finds ever a part and place in the world,
for not alone does armed rebellion call for his
service, but social integrity, political honesty,
a nd non-partisan statesmanship beseech his
aid. There are no times which may be said to
be specially propitious to virtue and truth.
The exemplars of the latter alwayB have to
bear the cross and endure indignities, and
meet with opposition and malice. Th graves
we think of here and ow filled with unforgot
ten comrades and friends, remind us what it
cost to be loyal to the old flag. Unpopularity
and petty persecution tell us still what recti
tude and political independence, a nd unswerv
ing honor cost in public life. There is no
short cut, no smooth road into a great and
good life. I is yet a hard thing to be a brave,
large souled and divinely tempered man and
questioning former days, the response is, so has
it ever been. The country for which died those
we commemorate by this service, calls to each
of us for self-sacrifice, for honesty, for high
toned citizenship, for personal purity and rec
titude, virtues all of them, not cheaper nor
easier won than those which are the fruit of
patriotic struggles and martyr deaths.
THE INSPIRATION SUPPLIED BY THE PAST.
From this remembrance of former days
comes, too, that inspiration all hearts and com
munities are needing. Every well lived life is
a contribution to the stock of the
world's -virtues, and we feel the tonic
of the example. Former days, when
full of brave and useful and kindly deeds, are
like the faces of angels, with which the old
masters used to fill the upper part of their
canvass, and they seem to look'down upon us
with approving glances, and cheer us with
"Whose echoes flow from soul to soul,
And grow forever and forever."
The fealty to country, the unselfish service of
great national interests, when menaced by foes,
which th ey illustrated, ought to recall the
people co-day from mean pursuits, from party
bickerings, and inspire them with better pur
poses and hopes. I is these lurid yesterdays,
that now admonish us to guard intact what
was preserved at such a great cost. Blessed
then the remembrance of our late war-years,
whose momentum Bhall press forward and
upward our personal and national life,for
the battle fields in which freedom triumphed
for the conflict with and defeat of so many
forms of sin for the trials and tears of
these our fondly remembered brothers,
in arms, for the grave questions settled by the
stern arbitrament of civil strife, for a united
country, and the new springing feelings of
concord and fraternity amidst once Itpstile sec
tions,for all this, we bless those to whom
these storied achievements arc due. A glorious
path paves the way for a glorious future.

would not speak to scoffers or unbelievers, but
to those who, like doubting Thomas, thought
the story of Jesus was almost too good to be
true, and if he succeeded in bringing them a
little nearer the cross, his efforts would be
fully rewarded. With great effect, the bishop
proceeded to tell the story of Jesus how he
was raised in alo w, disreputable Jewish village,

received no instruction, j'et when he first
made his appearance in the temple and pro
ceeded to expou nd the law, the people were as
tounded and exclaimed, "Whence knew this
man learning?" The speaker traced the steps
of the Master through the terrible day before
the crucifixion, when all his disciples had de
serted him, to the cross on Calvary and to the
grave, and eloquently pictured the astonish
ment of his disciples at his resurrection, and
the strong belief in his divinity which it
inspired in them the sudden
conversion and strong, abiding
faith of Paul, the most learned of all men the
world ever saw, and the conversion of the
masses on the day of Pentecost. drew
three conclusions from the story of the resur
rection. Th first was the existence and
eternity of the soul. This had been his solace
through many afflictions, and had been the
comfort of thousands besides. had visited
many heathen shrines, and witnessed the out
reaching of his brethren in the vain effort to
grasp God. had stood at the bedside of
dying Christians, and seen them sustained
and supported by the hope inspired by a
knowledge that God v.as there. For man must
die. Where a cradle had been there must a
coffin come. All his life had the knowledge of
immortality been a blessed comfort. What
could an infidel promise in exchange for this
hope of immortality?
His next conclusion was of the dignity of
the body. Those who taught the doctrine that
the body was a useless casketmerely a shell
in which the soul could retid while on earth, to
be thrown away whenever the spirit had flown,
taught a debasing principle. For had not

Finally, the story gave him full faith in the
final resurrection. I was a great support in
one's declining years to know that this life is
not all we have to live. And stiongan his faith
might be, it was not too strong to carry him
to the throne of God. I conclusion the
bishop told an affecting story of the strength
of faith as shown by a little Bhepherd boy.
The hymn "Nearer my Go to Thee" was
sung by the choir, during which the class, con
sisting of five young ladies and gentlemen, and
a lad came forward to the chancel, where they
