laQ to aruuse their attention. Wt-rn it
bat pcseible for t'jem to realitj what
the tUti o( thicg was at the coucln
ion of the war, tbey would not but
be amti'd. Then the fortnees of pri
vate ciliaens were mainly destroyed;
States, cities and wido upaces of the
country were disorganized, laid wsste,
steeped io poverty; the whole labor
system was upset, evirytbiog was
pretest that induces a coaotry's
degeneration, that represses energy,
and discourages enterprise. But it is
the people of a country that make s
country, sod where there is will, and
impulse, and the determination to
conquer adverse circumstances, and
dominate niiufortune by Lard toil
and persevering efloris, Bucuefa
and victory will bs com
manded, not crouched to and
begged for. That the Southern peo
ple poesbss tbrse muster qualities is
proved by the results we see today.
The qaalitios that made them formid
able ok the battle field huve been
manifested no less ptrikingly in the
context against the misfortune and
the diwstrona results of devastating
war. The South has not merely ie-
tovered herself; she has gone, short
as the time of recuperation has been
far beyond the point at which the war
found her. Iler very deprivations
have been made instrumental to ano-
ttiut. and her misfortunes Lave been
as dams to a river, giving might to
forces far beyond their unobstructed
power. Look at Tennessee as the war
left it, (battered, downcast and ap
parently ruined. Look at it today,
bright, vigorous, prosperous, and with
prospects before it never dreamed of
ntil misfortune rame, let loose the
onfinlng obstacle, and aroused the
dormant encrgios. Where is there
today a people more cheerful, hopeful
and confident of the future? Her
towns are expanding to clliue,
her villages are swelling Into
prosperons towns, acd many a mile
that wis left to the swamp and the
gloom of the lorest, is now gladdened
with newly springing up villages sur
rounded with fertile fields and pro?'
peruBB farms. Memphis, that has hod
to endure the horrors of epidemic In
addltioa to the havoc cf war, now
stands one of the most promising, In
creasing and prosperous cities in the
whole Missitsippi Valley. Her youth
are in her schools, preparing to carry
n what their bard toiling fathers have
so happily begun, and her men are
manifesting a degree of energy and a
steadiness of industry rarely equaled
Ii the poet's assurance that "sweet are
the wea of adversity" wore ovor true,
. they are tins of Memphis, that "out of
the nettle danger haa plucked the
Dower tafeiy." Bufore the war a New
Orleans paper said: "We can conte m
plate no prreaible slate of things that
wonld, in any way, make Memphis a
rival cf New Orleans." The immense
increase, year by your, of the cotton
trade of Memphis, as compared wi:h
the waiiing markets of Nw
Orleans shows the advance
that has ben made. Bt-sMe the plie
nomcutl advance of its staple com
morce, it has a'mo advanced In munu
lactate, and mills and shops and
smoking factory chimneys show how
the imlna'ry and commerce of the ci y
liaa bcou extended. Its poula'ion
goes on increosing, acres npon acres
that were suburbs covered With ftirms
and thick woods before the war, are
sow covered with habitations, manu
factories, churches and stores. The
best evidence cf what Memphis has
acfompHtihed is given by tho manner
in which those astute observers, the
projectors of railroads, have chosen it
as the center of a vast prasent and
future business. From the fr East to
the transmontane West, from the
bieeiy North to the torrid waters of
the Gall of Mexico, railroad connec
tion with Memphis is eagerly sought
and highly prised. Could a more con
vincing proof be demanded of what
Memphis has accomplished since the
military trumpet call echoed in her
streets and the boom of the cannon re
verberated around her neighborhood
and interrupted tier commerce

for details, but the tr-gret-B of Nash
ville since the war is a wonderful dis
play of what the natural resources of
the land and the indomitable energy
of the people of Tennessee can do.
Clarksville, that was a neat littlo town
on the right bank of the Cumberland,
has expanded since the war into a
great center of the tobacco trade, and
is givlrg encouragement to manufac
tures that are every year becoming
mere nnmerous and important. Chat

If a doubt exists abont Tennessee's

what has beta attained in Chatta

as an ont-of-the-world piece, althocgh
its people, in com it on with many of
the Kart Tenmsseans, were famous
for their intelligence and thrift. But
look at tho Knoxville and it spread
and spreading area of today. Its old
quiet is exchanged for the rush and
roar of business. Manufactures, fur
naces, the proceeds of the neighboring
coal mines, iron and sice, and
the everywhere admired East Tea
neesee marble, make Knoxville a very
storehouse of nature's treasure, turned
by the skill and industry ol its people,
and tho markets to which its fine eye
tern of railways give them access, Into
gold. Not half our say is said, but we
must conclude by remarking that
while outside capital has done mana,
and its aid Is gratefully acknowledged,
the great instruments of Tennessee s
regeneration, those who put her vast
natural ti sourcoi to the vast uses they
areadiutid for. aro those wno were

to Gov. Vance, of North Carolina, in

A TERRIBLE DISASTER.
NOT A SOUL LEFT TO TELL HIE
Of the Awful Miner j of a Stranded
Teasel's Crew Drowacd in
Dktboit, Mrcit , Nnvembtr 19. A
special fn.m Frarikfert saya: A terri
ble drsaiter occurred liet night and
there is left not a toul ti toil the story.
Daring tbe bight of tbe storm yester
day afternoon, at intervals through
the blinding enow storm a tbree
masted schooner could be sesn about
six miles southeast of Frankfort liar
no'es were almost bare and the deck
seemed cloar of cargo. An attempt
was made to anchor her and she was
for a time, bnt soon broke loose and
drlltsd helplessly bafora the gale. Tbe
wind gradually increased in violence
and the seas were growing every mo
ment larger, when darkness settled
like a pati over the face of tbe
lake. Help was asked from
the life saving station at Manis
tee, bnt it was impossible for
a tun to live in such a gale. After
great trouble the life saving station,
seven miles north of bero, w-s
reached, and tho saoa-alus hauled
down the coast by a few volunteers
over steep hills and ravines, tree
trunks and heavy scow drifts, and
pfltsdbyibe driving enow and hail,
lnev arrived at tne scene oi me uimn
ter at Herring creek at 4 o' dork this
innraing, after a twenty mile struggle
against the ideroonts. Tbe icene beg
cars description. The vesBcl was to
tally broken up and with the
ca-gi upon the bfaih, everything
beinir completely destroyed. Broken
mas s, shruuds, lumber and debris,
nil were mixed and piled up together,
Capt. Matthews thinks i-bo mutt have
had ber anchor dowu and pounded to
pieces on tbe outer bar. One body
was found, that of a man about 30
years old, with black hair, Bandy mns
tache, and clothing to resist the
wi atber. In tbe pocket of bU coat
was a letter bearing tbe address,
"William Land i', 131 Madison street.
Chicago." His fnce wm bsdly jtmmed
and his hagds cut. The Vermel's
yawl, with the nameMenekaunee, was
near b v. unlr lured. It is thought she
had a crew oi nine men snd that she
broke as soon sa the struck. No other
bodies have been discovered. Another
wreck was discovered two miles
south, where the same chaotic wreck
age was seen by the Free Ftcm corr'
spondent Tbe entire stem of the
schooner Marinette, of Racine. Wis.,
was discovered. At a neighboring
farmhouse was a bruised and battered
sailor with lacerated hands, from
which tbe tiesh was stripped, and his
feet were badly swollen. He is C. W.
Annie, oi Fort Huron, a sailor on his
first trip, and is tbe only survivor of
this vessel. He says: "We loaded at
Oscoda with lumber for George Loud,
the owner of tbe lost vessel, and left
for Chicago Sunday. The tow, con
sisting of tbe steam barge Manietiqne
and the schooners Marineite and
Menekaunee, met heavy weather
In Lake Huron, and was driven
for shelter to Presene Ise.
We then left and made
a fair paasage on Lake Michigan.
Wednesday noon a southeast gxle eet
in, with tain and snow. At midniuht,
while abreast of Ludington, e.ix miles
out, the gale increased to almost a
hurricane. Tbe barge reached for the
Wisconsin shore, made Two Kivers
light, but could fetch nothing. At
daylight tbe Mauistique squared for
tbe Manitou Islands to escape the on
slaught of the storm, and the tow
broke np at 2:30 o'clock. The steamer
left us to our fate. We signalled to
them to etav by us, bat site st ained
away, and was lost to sight in a storm
squall. Tbe Marinette pitched and
rolled terribly, so thnt we could
scarcely keep btl mt. She unshipped
ber rudder, becoming unrannsgeHble,
then tpruug a leak. Watwr lo)grd,
she ro ldd her deck load off, taking
both rni 6 and bulwarks with It. She
rolled her maiumaet out, and in fall
ing it took the foremast and mizzen
head. We taw tbe Alenekaunee
drifting apparently near us all day.
SheBhowed no distress signal, while
we tied our colors to the mast. We
sitthtoJ Frnnkfort r'uring the after
noon. We were huddled in the cabin,
white we built a toinporary floor
over the water. The Captain, a Chi
cago man, 60 years o'd don't know
his name was washed overboard and
drowned at 2 o'clock in the afternoon.
We lowered the yawl at 5 o'clock and
attempted to reach land, bnt in lower
ing she sprung a leak, rendering her
UBoless, and we let her go adrift.
At 12 o'clock ahe struck tbe bench
broadside and swing head to, and we
rushed out of the cabin. Our crew
was eight men all told. Some hud
dled nnder tbe lea of tbe cabin, cling
ing to the timber heads. I took to tbe
nil iien rigging. The stewardess, Mary,
was dinning to ms crying "Save me I
Ob, lavs me I" I helped her up the
shrouds and ahe tried to hold on until
I could fasten ber. But she could not
stand the cold and suddenly let so her
hold and foil down acrivs me, nearly
carrying me along, and fell into the
bolliogsea. Her daughtsr, aged 13,
tbe pet of the crew, never left tbe
cabin, but was drowned there.
Clinglrg to the rigmng with
me was "French John and Mr.
Cumfrey. Soon the mast fell
acrors tbe cabin. We then clung to
the davits at her stern, the eeas dash
ing over us. Tbe others, we tbouttht
were gradually washed off, one after
another. At 1 o'clock Mr. Cumfrey
and John said tbey would try and
reach the shore. They each took a
loose plank and Btaited. AS they
ucred land I hallo' d. "How do you
get along?" Toe airswtr came, "All
right!" and then all was silent. A
heavy sea swept over the wreck, car
rying me along. I grappled a small
piece of deck plank, and after a tetrl
ble experience was flung upon the
shore. I crawled to the house of Mr,
Mortensen, who took care of me. Our
crew consisted of ihecsptain (name un

and daughter Minnie, from Fort
Huron, and another named John.

promised to many ber, but eubce
quently ha coldly refused to entertain
any proposition of matrimony. She
tbeu consulted a lawyer, and tbe
present salt la tie iesuit oi tne iegi
The young man from whom she
hopes to secure such heavy damages
is amply able to pay if the suit goes
against bim. He possesses a very
comfortable fortune, derived from tbe
esta'.e of the lata Mme. Musard, the
peerless beauty of tbe Court cf Hol
land, on whom royal favors were so
lavistily bestowed, and who was tbe
tisr of his father, Mr. William biake
ney, of Orangeburg, and of bis aunt,
Mrs. Charles Pike, of South Nyack.
Young Biakeney is 20 years old, ia a
social favorite, and is a' ike Intelligent
and handsome. His love for horses
has led bim to invest as a part
ner in a njuristnog livery dubi-
ness at Piermont. The papers in
the suit were eervtd uoon him yester
day,, and today tbe Herald reporter
found him at bis stables. Mr. Biakeney
said he had placet the matter io tbe
handp of bis attorney, Mr. iiinman, in
New York, and did not care to talk
about the case now, but on being as
sured tbat Miss Hearing had told her
story he became more communicarive
and invited the repoiter to read a
legal document which he draw from
bw pocket. Tbe paper sppaiently is
in leal form, and purports to be an
ee-e, ineiit tigned try Ansa tiering and
by Ryer Kyo son, of Ti-ppan, as her
guardian eel dtour. Is bears date 0
iober iv, leso; was executed Dt-mre a
Nhw York C.ty notary, and releases
B akoney from all liabih'y to be sued
by Miss Heiing for seduction or for
many other c:t- d causes. Tbe cons d
eraiion named is $1. Attached to the
airrpem-nt is a eu nmous in a suit for
$(5,(00 damngea for seduction. Mr.
Biakeney wa? very nervous and le-
fused to atisner close questioning
regarding this fiist suit or tue induce
ments which led Alias iienng
to eiga the release. He cou-
fesssd tbbt bis own im
prudent conduct hd to bringing the
first action, but denied empha ically
that he ever promised to marry her or
that he alone was responsible for her
condition. All that could be gleaned
on tbe subject was his statement "I
simply asked her ta relea.e me and
sbe did." The summons and the
auroement both bear date of October
12. 1886. but that the agreement was
drawn in September, in anticipation
of legal trouble, is obvious irom
erasures poorly made, from interlinea
tions and from the appearance of tbe
space left for tbe naming cf the con
sideration. Biakeney expresses con
fidence tbat the document will defeat
Miss Herinit's efforts, but ehe also has
something to say about that.
Publio interest iu tne case is intensi
fied by a rather remarkable coinci
dence of names, which has led to a
general understanding, and one suite
unfortunate for some innocent per
sons. The Biakeney and Hering
families are both large. Jjlakeney has
a young cousin also named William,
who will marry Mil Rlla liar inn, a
most estimable vouch lady oi Tappxn,
on December 20: b, and tbere is a ill a
third young lady living near Piermont
and tamed Mi.s E l Uaring, who
is a friend of both branches of the
Biakeney family. Thus a d re mix
ing of names in the result of the in
creasing pub icity given to thn breach
nf promise suit. Tbe William A.
Blakenev who is def- ndant in this ac
tion lives at Orangrburg, is tbe son of
William H Biakeney and brother of
Davd Elliott Biakeney, wno neriy
