The commemoration services at

of an occasion only less memorable
than the initial cps in the formation
' of tho Confederacy over which Mr.
Davis presided for four years with a
firmness and patriotism that can never
be fo gotten so long as the English
language is poken. He is endeared
' to his countrymen by his services in

unfaltering courage with which he
has borne up against the conditions
made for him as a vicarious sacrifice
for the f outh. He is first in the hearis
of the people of the South.

According to the report of the Xew

missionary from China, in an address
delivered in the Pilgrim Congrega
tional Church, Harlem, on Thursday
n'ght, on the Chinese question, said:
'The Chinamen returning from Cali

in China. It is no uncommon thing
for tho missionaries to be cursed in
English by Chinamen, and even little
child' en follow their examp'e, I hope
that no more Chinamen will come to
Americans they learn all the vices
here. An exception is seen, however,
in the cases of those hoys who have
been cnthered into Christian Sunday'

untold.' " This reverses all the ideas

Mostuomeby, Ala , April 28. Not
withstanding that the rain was falling
in torrents all last night, the enthusi
astic multitude continued swaying to
and from tho public thoroughfare till
midnight, and the Exchange Hotel
where ex-President Davis and Gtn.
Gordon stopped. The rain continued
until early in the forenoon. The Ex
ecutive Committee, owing to tho wet
condition of the park, changed tho
place of speaking to the Capitol
grounds. The weather subsequently
cleared somewhat. Tho rain ceased
and tho trains came in crowded, and
the serging populace swayed to and
fro. Meantime Mr. Davis and his
daughter and grandson held an infor
mal reception at the Exchange
parlors, the most prominei.t
citizens and ladies from Alabama and
neighboring Status being introduced.
Mayor Reese welcomed the distin
guished guests, offering the freedom
of the city in an appropriate speech,
and Mr. Davis and Gen. Gordon re
plying gracefully. Shortly before 2
o'clock the Second Alabama regiment

tered a fine carriage drawn by four
white horses, the driver and footman
in fine livery. Gen. Gordon was es
corted to the next carriage by Capt.

The Bt-eets were lined with thous

and Mr. Davis was introduced by
Mayor Reese, who advanced to the
stage and said : "My countrymen, it
is with protound emotions tnai l pre
sent to you the foremost type of
Southern manhood, the Hon. JetTerson
Davis, ex-President ot the Uon federate
States of America."
The scenes heretofore enacted were
gone over as Mr. Davis advanced, and
it was fome minutes before he could
proceed. It was the first timethousands
in the crowd had seen him since
his arrival, it being impossible for all
to personally reach him at the hotel.
The shouts finally dying away, 51 r.

Federal flag over him and Confederate
veterans before turn who had come
hundreds of miles to hear and see
him, in a clear, ringing voice, showing
the deep intensity of his feelings, but
without a tremor or paus", except
when interrupted by the shouts of his
hearersj said :
Mil. DA Vis's SPEECH.
My Fbiknds It would be vain if I
should attempt to express to you the
deep gratification which I feel at this
demonstration. But I know it is not
personal, and therefore I feel more
deeply grateful, because it is a senti
ment far dearer to mo than myself.
You have passed through the terriblo
ordtalof war which Alabama did not
seek. When she felt her wrongs too
n-ievous for further toleration she
sought the peaceable solution. That
being denied her thunders of war
came ringing over the land. Then her
people rose in ineir majemy,graj iimn-u
seers and beardless boys eagerly rushed
ti the front. It was that war which
'Christianity alone proved a holy war
for defense. Well do I remember see
ing your gentlo boys, so small, to use
a farmer's phrase, they might have
been called seed corn, moving in with
eai:er step and fearless brow t J the
carnival of death, and I have also
looked upon them when their knao
sacks aud mcsUets seemed heavier
than the boys, and my eyes, partaking
of a mother's weakness, tilled with
tears. Those days have passed. Many
of them have found nameless graves
but tticy are not dead, they
live in memory, and their spirits
stand out in "the grand reserve
of that column, which is marching on
with unfaltering bUps toward the
goal of constitutional liberty. Ap-
I ahonld not be called upon to make a
speech, and therefore I will only ex
tend to you ray heartfelt thanks. God
bless you, one and all, old men and
boys, and the ladies, above all others,
who never faltered in our direst need
Loud a d lon continued applause.
When he retired shouts w ere so long
and loud that Mr. Davis had to go to
the front again. He bowed his ac
knowledgement and thanks.

' Bat ltt us come to tbe details. The
original colonies which rebelled
against tbe mother country and f s'ab
lisbed their independence were thir

which s-uight tbeir independence
were also tlirteen in number. These
thirteen, including tbe border States,
which were divided in sentiment, em

tqasre miles, leaving the government
of the United S'.etts in undisturbed
and an' threatened pof-BHSBion of a ter
ritory cf about 2,193,84t fqaare miles.
'These thiitien Southern States
possessed an sgj;rg9te wealth of about

by an aggregated wealth of shout $ 10,

charscti ristics of t';e Southern sold t".

r oldier was more vigorous in constitu
tion, mote robust in physical energy,
and was reared under a civilization
and domestic institutions which de
veloped, in a h gh degree, the virtue
of self-reliance. Where, then, aie we
to find tbe explanation ui the astound
ing fact that it required to defeat the
Sjuth in four years an enlieted force
more than twice as treat as the ent re
Prussian armies which in men month
overwhelmed and humiliated France?
Whit is tbe explanation, I again in
quire, of tbe ncexampled record made
by the Southern armies ?
"It cannot be attributed to any wunt
rf high courage in the sidliors of t io
North. Independent of the exhibi
tions f individual heroism, by which
a'l were impressed who met them on
the field, the ratio of Federal looses in

European armies, the rushing and oft
repeated onsets of Northern phalanxes,
with fix-d bayonstr, sfialrst the walls
cf fire from Southern guns, and over
the dead bodies of their comrades,
plied in shaitly hecatombs before
Soutkern forts and breuttwoiks, tear
witness to Federal courage and devo

"In eeeking the source of this mar
velous exhibition jf res siing power
shown by tbe couth, it is p-oper to
t ke ir.to account the fact that sue Ce

But to toy mind the one sufficient ex
planation the 'rauna caiMim' is to
bo ft uod in tne preat, d'siincuve, pri
mal tbooght that moved, dominated
and insnired tbe Southern people. If
the Northern soldier wai impelled by
'he thought that a disruption of the
Union endangered tbe permanence of
of our free institutions, and ihat to
save tbe Union watt) save republican
freedom on this continent, the South
was moved, on tbe other band, by
obedience to 'Nature's first law' the
law of se'f defense. If she sought to
sever her relations with ber sister
States of the North, it was in the be
lief that she would find safety nnder a
government ot homogeneous institu
tions. Her declaration of a desire for
neace and for a continuance ot fuend-
lv relations wis emphatic and
sincere. If, in the progress of
succeeding war, she crossed her
borders and be re her banners
northward it was with the hope of
forcing the withdrawal of Federal
f jrces fiom her territory and of com
pelling recognition of her independ
ence. The one controlling, dl-pervad-
ingthruiht that throbbed thiough
every fiber of the Sonthern brain was
fiat tbe rights oi tne state', me fecu
