It would bo impossihlo to write
reliable and thorough history of Tennessee
from 171H1 to 1812 without acknowledging
tho dominance of his imperial will and
nil-controlling character. No other rStuto

mies to work him evil It is, therefore,
eminently proper that tho women of Ten
nesHOO should bo anxious to preservo his
tomb and save his homo so that coming
generations may seo It as ho left it.
Jackson was tho greatest soldier cf his
day in this part of tho world, and lie
proved to lw a I'nwidcnt after tho peo-
plu's own hearts. Ho was tho fcreutotit
man the Hinlo has produced, an 1 is, from
every and any imiIiiI of view, worthy lo
bo commemorated forever as a Republican
hen who, to hi dying day, sjoko with
reverent rosjicct of Thomas Jefferson as
the sage whom wisdom had guided tho
colonies and tho steps of tho Infant Re
public. No Democrat In the Legisluturo
of tlio Ktata can slford to forget these (acts
or voto in opposition to any uioustiro that
rontumpUte the perpetuity ol Jackson'

Mnrdano, In his reminiscences iu the Los
ton (jUJ, declnros:
I can't say that I agree with John M. In
tho above noted opinion. It has leen
tho custom sluce the pnmo was introduced
to put tho surest catch in the lell-lluld. It
is much more dillicult to play for a bats
man in lelt-tleld than iu ci liter or right
A player, In orJer to rover tlio position
projierly, should cbango Lis position lor
ueuilv every batsman.
In laying (or left-hand batters I consider
Joe llornung the best man in tho busi
ness. For playing the pnition (or all it is
worth I thiuk ilardio Richardson, ol the
present Ronton toam, by far tlio ImwI in
the league. When il comes to playing the
tsusition lor all there is In It, 1 must atrrce
with Harry Wright and other liml-ciusa
authorities that Andy licouard, ol the old
lloston champions, was tho finest the
game ever produced.
Whnt Dickey Johnston is to tho lcaguo
renter fielders, thisold-timer is to the base
ball liill-llelders up tn the preaent time,
and ho bus been out ol tho business uow
lor ten years.
- .Tho men ol tho present time novor at
tempt to get tho balls bit lar over their
heads as tills man did. I have seen the
Ivoys practice il lor hours on the Ninth
laid grounds, but invariably gave) it op in
disgust, lconard played a short Held and
was noted (or gcttimt lino hit botweun
third and short, Tho instant the ball was
hit hard he would turn with it, and would
never turn when ho got under tho de
scending sphere, as Johnston does, but
would lake it in whilo still running with
it. To see him gather himscK (or a long
throw homo was a picture.
Nothing like his throw ing has ever been
seen (nun the oullleld. (Swift and straight
as a rillo shot tho ball would come learitig
homo iu timo to get the run nor, whenever
there was a ghost ol a chance. Ho it was
who introduced throwing to tho homo
pinto on a shooting llrsl hound.
During theclght year that I played with
and against lamnurd I never saw him
make a wild throw, and I have seen hun
let tho ball go (nun all sorts ol positions
when hurried. If ever there was a natural
I torn ball plaver Utinard was tho man. In
lii day ho was classed with the best bats
men iu tho business, and could run bases
and play the flno points ol tho game wilh
tho l-st ol them, lie was about the build
ol Dickev Johnston perhaps a little
stouter. He was also a rcmaikuhlo In
Holder, ami could play second or third In
tine stylo. His laal scasouon the diamond
wus in ls7D, when he traveled from one
end ol the Mates to the other with the Hop
Hitters Clubiif Rochester, N. V. As the
team was on its way lo California the boys
rnn tip to Dubinino, la., to play a series ol
g linos with the club ol I lint place). Charley
Hadltourn. now with Hoston; Comiskoy,
thoL louis captain, an 1 Ihe twa Ule
son brother were inomlicr of tho team,
as waa also Tom I(iu, now msnsgmg
the Cleveland club, it was a skin dia
mond, and a ball would skip over tho
ground very fast. I red Corey was pilch,
lug for tho Hop Hitler team, and was
giving Jack (ileuson a drop ball. How
lie could hit It! Hot no matter how hard,
every ouo went on the around. ,lpiu,"n
was a slow runner, and Ixonard, who
covered short, played his position nearly
out to left lleld-certalnly twenty yard
b.ck ol tho lino-hut got h msu every
tintebv hi leinarksble throwing. Ihe
Wcle.n box d.du'l know what to nisU
w( ik The burJor Oleason would hit the
ball tbe easier Leonard would line it over
to first base in time to get bis man.
Leonard's Urst playing as done with
amateur clubs in his native city of Now
ark, N. J. In 18(18 ha was secured by the
famous Irvingtons, a club that dow ned all
the cracks. It was composed of a lot of
youngsters. Charley Sweoscy, tho Cin
cinnati Rods' great player, was among tbo
colts of this great club. Leonard and be
were too fast for tbe company, and were
finally induced to go West in the full ol
that season to piay witn tne Cincinnati
Ituckcyes. Thoy wero soenred by Harry
Wrieht for the famous old nine which
played the entire season of 'CO, after trav

The umpire's salary was fixed at $125

In the Interest . of the ex-Confederate

New York, March 24. There was a
mooting at tho Academy of Music tonight
under tho auspices of the New York Citi
zens' Committoe, in aid of the National
Confcdcrato Soldiers' Homo at Austin,
Tex. Gen. II. II. Carnum presided. Muny
Grany Army men were in the audience,
Including Gcu. T. T. Chittenden and Oca.
There wero also numerous Confederate
veterans present. MaJ. Joseph B. Stewart,
one of tbe directors of the home, was tbo
principal speaker. Ho said in part:
Sectionalism Is being fast obliterated
from tho minds and hearts of mon, and
the foemon of twenty-five yoars ago now
march shoulder to shoulder in tbe strug
gles of civil conflict The vulor and
fortitude of tho Confederate dead is an
over-living boritago, not of tbe South,
but of tbe entire Union. Roth sides of
the coullict were .but fitting ex.
omplars of the American soldier. We
rejoice that many thousands of ., Union
veterans are now upon the pension rolls
and about 15,000 are maintained by tho
Uovorcment in comlortablo homes, and
at an annual aggregate expense of about
$100 0k),(M"1, and that they are honored
wards ol tho nntion. All lionor to thoso
men and tho Government thut sustains
and upholds them with its bounty and
lurgely so by tne votes oi rsotiinern men
in thn luu'-tii.ikinfr oower of tho rnunLre.
It is but lining reward to them and a
valuable lesson to the youth of our land.
Hut whut may be done (or tbe hapless Con
federate soldier, wholofl an army and freely
shed his blood as a willing sacritlco upon
tho altar of a country that bad no sponsor
at its baptism among tno nations ol tho
earth, and which was destined to siuk like
some bright planet ol the heavens never
more to rise again? It might bo unwise

Soul hern mon in both brunches of our

Tbo speaker w ont on to sny that (or this
ptirposo tho John H. Hood CampoiCon
loderulo Veterans was chartered in the
Mule of Texas. It was not their purpose
to fmtcr tho animosities of tho past, but to
minister to the wants of their siill'ering
comrados. Ho reviewed Ihe establishment
of the Confederate Soldiers' Homo at Aus
tin, Tex., aud said it had been maintained
for more thau two vours by private charity.
Alter reviewing the great commercial pros
clsof tho South and its dependence upon
tho North, the speaker referred to the negro
question. Ho said: The freedom oi the
negro added untold blessings to their
former masters, though their liberation at
lirst seemed lo be a cruel kind ol logic.
Yet, truly may it bo said, thut there wa
never such a blessing iu disguise to tho
whilo man as that which liberated tho
negro race in the South. It (reed tho
muster and tbo slave, Tho freeing ol
tho slave dignified laVir in tho
South and taught the bust lessons
o( reliance, l'roin the lirst, sympa
thy and welfare, the white man iu the
South had bocumo interested in education,
improvement and elevation of tho negro,
and Imposed a tax upon himself to edu
cate and elevate his former slave. In the
problem Isdore it tho Suites of tho South,
u'ilb.iiil liili.rf.p..nnji liv tli.i I iMtinrnl lli.tak
eminent, must bo left to solve the question
of local self government. In the North,
tho tjM'ukor said, thu political conditions
ol tho Ninth were not understood how
the giving of the ballot lo tho negro
was regarded as a menace lo pros.-rty.
This was Ihe cause ol party alignments,
and this had broken up the imturul affilia
tions ol Ihe white voters.
Muj. Stewart concluded as follows: "And
while wo would flyht and dio yes, we
tuean it die, if need bo, to mainiuin tho
honor and integrity of that gran I old flag,
we will over cherish the tenderest recol
lections of the 'Lost Csuu' and tho Hag
that was never destined lo float among the
emblems of nations."
