RACY. It fierceness of partiBanship a
frightful nightmare that George Wash
ington contemplated with dismay, fear
ing it would finally prove fatal to Amer
ican freedom. De Toequeviile. the
piofbundest of philosophers, said that
the American system of freedom dis
covered its greatest dangers in the
madness of partisanship. European
statesmen, decrying republican freedom,
have ever asserted that the constant re
currence of Presidential elections would
give such force and virulence to parti
sanship that our system of laws and gov
ernment could not long withstand ceaae-It-Hs
violence of ever-recurring shocks.
Therefore with amazement, such as
men and nations never confessed before,
do they contemplate the event of yester
day at Baltimore. The wisdom of the
American people is profounder than
their tiassions. Three millions of Amer
ican citizens, partisans through all their
lives, devoted to a creed as simple and
clearly defined as American organic law,
involving questions affecting the direct
jH-rsonal interest of each of us three
millions of partisans, through their
alilest and chosen exponents at Balti
more, assent, for the country's good,
and in the presence, as they be
lieve, of fearful impending dan
gers, to the leadership of a life-long
enemy, concurriag with them, as he
doe?, solely in the purpose of preventing
the establishment of despotism on the
niuis of the Republic. Partisanship,
the tHigbear of dreamers and theorists,
divested of its terrors, and mankind
must confess that the spectacle present
ed this day by the American people,
one half of their number subordinating
every prejudice of a lifetime to the
single purpose of rendering impossible
the thorough transformation of our sys
tem of government, is the sublimest
development of patriotism ever defined
in all the pages of the world's history.
It is proper to say that in this act of self
abnegation, this convention of the parti
- in into the patriot, the (South led the
way. It was not. however, that the
South more willingly than the North
makes sacrifices for the country's good ;
I iut because these Southern States were
themselves witnesses and victims of
crimes against American liberty. Here
dangers to which the whole country is
xjHised, and wrongs done the people,
too clear! v defined lo be III 1st
, and too terrible to tie condoned.
The South will vote as a unit for the
candidates designated yesterday at Bal
timore, and while thus paying tribute to
patriotism, it does not forget fealty to
principle. In approving Mr. Greeley as
a Republican, and as contradistinguished
from an imperialist and corruptioniat, it
I iy no means follows that we abandon
the partisan creed of Democracy, con
stituting as it does the only sure basis of
in luring American freedom.
The following statistics are gathered
from one of the commonplace Yankee
histories of the United States. They
may not be very trustworthy, since we
have all learned that history at best is
only an outline of truth. Moreover,
Yankee history proper is infinitely lees
1 1 uthful in its recitals than Yankee dic
tionaries in which, as seen in successive
edition of Webster's unabridged, the
signification of political terms is con- !
staiitly changed sad adapted to Y'ankee
prejudices and preconceptions. The
words "Congreee" nd "State" Illus
trate the tmth of the assertion. History
that lines from "Down Beet" is full
.f falsehoods. There is not a volume oj
nn nalVill American history, printed
within twenty years, which does not
contradict Elliott's Debates and
Madison's Papers, and, ssert that the
S'MBth, exacted andfc6d the protrac
ti m of the African slave-trade, even as
the story is pcrsistenly put forth, and
must become part of this great scheme
of lies called history, that the late
American war was a " slaveholders' re
bellion." There is not only little or no
truth in history as now written, but
there will not be while the press of the
North shapes and controls both Ameri
can and European opinion. Even as
France has lost eeute by defeat, so with
the South. But the matter before us is
involved in appended statistics collated
from a modern American scnooi History

Curry was the friskiest were emptying

Beaumont, stiff, prim, regal in dignity
and bearing, reigned in Memphis. He
had been create-1 a satrap by the Nash
ville militia despotism. Curry was
tho nrime minister of the Metro
politan Police chieftain, and it will
be remembered what terrible efforts
were made by the potent pair to achieve
success for Cum-. There was a decree
issued by the mighty Chief of Police.
It was, as nearly as we can remember,
in these words : "So negro whote coat it
not chalkedor Curry u-ill be permitted
to enter the city to-day by the Metropolitan
jxtlice force," Such was the law of the
Medes and Persians on election day when
Curry first sought to win the shrievalty.
But Curry is a good man now. He has
made terms with Barbour Lewis, and is
in treaty with Shaw, who may surren
der if Curry comes down properly, and
then no colored man's back need be
"chalked." On the contrary, the black
est man is now white enough to pass the
city's confines and deposit his kindly
ballot for the smiling, sunny adventurer.
It is well enough, however, for those
colored people who were excluded from
the city some years ago, because un
chalked, to get themselves whitewashed
now, or they may not be deemed good
enough to whisky with Curry.
LIFE I IBIQCl ITIST1 OF AMEBIC A.
There has been published within a
few days the result of a most thorough
and searchine investigation into the
condition and management of this in
stitution, which, as might have been
expected, has passed through the ordeal
with unimpaired credit in fact, with
added honors. We understand this in
vestigation was brought about by the
circulation of defamatory statements
made by a former employe of the com
pany, about the time of the organization
of the New York department The fal
sity of these malicious and baseless
promulgated and kept alive by
and unscrupulous rivals, had
tieen repeatedly demonstrated and as
often renewed: hence the directors of
the Association determined to adopt
such a course as would forever set at rest
the slanders of its enemies. To this end
they invited the best actuarial tal
ent of the country, in connection with
a committee of business men from
New York, to visit St, Louis for the
purpose, as above stated, of probing into
the affairs of the company. The exam
i nation was rigid and exhaustive. The
company's books, records, contracts and
securities were closely scrutinized, and
the verdict is eiven that its affairs are
in a sound condition; that it is abun
dantly able to meet all its future obliga
tions, and that it Is worthy of the entire
confidence of the people. The fearless
ness of the Association managers in in
viting investigation is in itself proof that
it is in a healthy condition. The in
dorsement of these eminent actuaries.
Messrs. Elizur Wright, E. W. Bryant
and Sheppard Homans, places this mat
ter beyond a doubt, and the character of
the gentleman at the head of the Asso
ciation here is sufficient guarantee that
its career in the future will be as success
ful as its past history.
One of the wisest and best citizens of
the county writes that the acceptance by
this gentleman of the call by his hosts
of friends to become a candidate for Sen
ator from Shelby county, has created
most marked satisfaction in the public
mind. When such men as E. Ensley
come to the front, we may consider the
country safe and the downward ten-
j dency of events decidedly arrested.
' Heretofore, the great trouble has been to
J get first-class, solid men to leave the
I retiracy of private life and launch out on
i the sea of politics. Nothing but duty
could call such a man as Ensley from
I the " private station " to the stormy ex-
lieriences of public lite, tils political
and personal integrity are above all sus
picion or impeachment. His sound
judgment and excellent tact are known
to very many of the first business men
of Memphis. Bom ai.d reared in Da
vidson county, he could exert a local in
fluence at the capital far superior to that
of any other man, perhaps, in the State.
Imbued thoroughly with the principles
and policy of the Democracy, he is
no politician, nevertheless is devoted
to the in ierests of the people at large,
and to Conservative government With
an enlarged and comprehensive grasp of
public affairs, he has no aspiration above
the welfare of his countrymen and the
irlorv nf tin. Sl-,!i. H unci 1 V i w own
iDterests are identical with those of the
people, and possessing the sound and
enlightened judgment and the great in-
nuence which he does, he will be en
abled to serve rsheiuy county with an
ability and efficiency second to none

Greeley's nomination at Cincinnati
was derided by the office-holders ; but a
vast multitude of honest, thoughtful
people everywhere earnestly approved
it There were good Republicans, hdW
ever, who stood aloof, thinking Grant
might not be nominated at Philadelphia
and that they might still adhere to the
Radical party, having a proper leader.
But Grant was nominated, and, to make
matters worse, Colfax was supplanted by
Wilson. A great body of Republicans,
therefore, stood prepared, If they saw
how Greeley could certainly triumph, to
vote for him. Baltimore has spoken and
this large force of disaffected Republicans
is conciliated, Greeley, assured of their
support, and they, of Democratic co
operation. There was never a candidate
for the Presidency who entered upon
the contest under fairer auspices than
Horace Greeley. He owes hU nomina

after that Mason, as Judge, ordered an
other election, claiming informality in
each previous election; Mason against
the railroads. Itcarried by a larger ma

vote. He battled with the road until

Chicago, July 10. The Tm of this
morning, in a leader based on the as
sumption that the Baltimore Conven
tion will to-day nominate Greeley aud
Brown, announces its adherence to the
views heretofore expressed in regard to
Greeley, and says it cannot and will
not espouse his cause or labor for his
election. It says Greeley is now the can
didate of the Democratic party, so far
as he can be made such a fact winch
it regards as a hard one, hut which can
not be ignored. It is also a fact that the
choice of the people must be either
Greeley or Grant. The question as to
how Democrats shall vote in this con
tingency, the writer says, is one to be
decided by individual voters themselves,
inasmuch as the action of the Baltimore
Convention has not placed the Democ
racy under the slightest obligation to
vote for Greeley. It is one of the worst
embodiments of Radicalism tbe coun
try has ever known, and at the same
time it is clearly the duty of every true
Democrat to give himself with renewed
devotion and redoubled soul to the work
of rescuing local government and the
legislative branch of the general gov
ernment from the grasp of Radicalism."

ink witn ttieir mutual lianukerchiefs,
"told" of each other iu about equal pro
portions, aud "made up" in a mm tun
exuberance of sobs and sassafras. They
had played at lovers liehind the wood
pile, been married by the piece speaker,
been divorced by the "first base," been
reunited by tin- minister's daughter, and
gone to house-keeping in the peat swamp
at regular intervals, as far back as their
memory extended. She iiad blue eyes,
and never understood vulgar fractions.
He use to miss, so that she might get to
the head of the class. One day she
braided her hair iu two little braids be
hind, tied it with pink lutestring ribbon
at three cents a yard. When they walk
ed home together, he touched it gently,
to signify approbation, and she blushed
like a May flower. It could not have
been long after that before she grew shy
at singing-school, and was apt to be go
ing home with her brother. In another
year, when he went to St. David's col
lege, she cried herself to sleep, forgot to
crimp her hair and said nothing was the
matter. So of course, when he came
home on the first vacation, it all hap
pened as it could not very well help hap
pening to the end of all young things'
dreaming or old ones' warning. She sat
in the choir in a blue dress with white
spots, with a pink bonnet and pink
cheeks, and sang in a very sweet little

Rev. Mr. Love, the recently settled and
very popular shepherd of the "meeting
house," felt moved in the spirit to preach
to his flock a sermon upon Christian am
ity, and to suggest as its most fitting
musical accompaniment, hymn eight
hundred and fifty-seven of the "Sweet
Singer of Israel" i just introduced). Ah,
you excellent mothers with washing
days ou your uiimls, and ye excellent
fathers, struggling to keep your faith
under the discovery of Tom's hrst cigar,
do you never suspect in your stupid,
good hearts, the tears of solid comfort
rolling into your spectacles as you sing,
and your soul aglow with all tne hidden
meanings of fellowship in the. one Master
whom they who love not never know
do you never suspect tbe flirtations con
ducted over that admirable hymn? It
may be very much too bad, but it is very
much the case. It is quite as iiad in me
to suggest the sacrilege to your young
people, metes your indignant souls, tuey
stand in need of no suggestion. Ask
them. I do not deny that it is atrocious
in me to spoil the hymn for you;
but that is another matter. She then in

beam struggling through a little ground
glass gallery window upon her pink
bonnet, sang :
