Tli HuWif, by telegraph, to bo properly
litidemtood n 1 1 lot bo rrud lictwi-eu the

could not Imi printed. I'lio aotitrnca la
lull ol signlftranco whleli says that "the

iHlier la Kjiully ao aliioli says that after
1-30 o'clock "drunken inon Inva led tlio
li.illrxmi, flourishing bubbling lultles of
iliniiiin'iie." tStilt another is that
"gnmUera, IkmW nmkers and women
istieh women) doxed or made merry
on tho stairways." And another is to
thoelfoct that "waiters, police uicn nnd
rnoiwoiiKer Iniys drank moat of the free

my: "I saw more rctpocUhle women In
stilted in the nper-room than I ever saw
even at the l runcli bull. I knexked
down a man who tried to kias tho dandle

aays additionally that "tho ticket takers
had no check placed upou them, and
thero Is no rjtteatiou they ma lo lota of
money letting in xipln who never should
have boon thero." And that p.i"'r adds,
"Many fla-s and otted plant wetv stolen."
Aud additionally, and more disgrace-till
Hill, says that "sonio of tho I nuns were
shockingly soiled dcflUI a(ter their flral
iKrtip.iiits hal lo(L" With thew bti. l cx
tracts in view It is no wonder Tht H'uWif
aaya that "never since tho palsee of the

Wen able to era lirnto the dry rot of rxee

taken by physical distresses, a remit of
their debaucbory, and per oeccMity, tj
bare turned tho boxes into cliMets. It Is
not too much to say that this is diararoful
to New York, f-uch an overturning of de
cency would be ImjxMiiihln In any city at
Iho South, even lu New Orleans during
Ilia Mardi Gras festivities. In this
auction, whatever turn may be by
and to themselves. In public pluces
decency always enforces obedicuce. A
man could not llvo mlnuto who would
defalno or attompt to degrade a woman ia
a public ballroom, especially tlie daughter
of a woll known citizen. In New York
and Chicago and possibly Philadelphia
and Boston such things are possible bo-
causo In each of thorn there ia a bruto
population, brutal and sodden In liquor
and lust (o whom a groat puhlio occasion
alfords a licenao and iustiflus thoir cousins
ol the police in laxity and un re
straint. But, after all, this bull servos
tho purposo of proving that uudor
Iho foundations of wliut wo cull
society Iho worms of otcrnul trouble are
working their will aud are ready for any
opportunity of wreck and ruin. Life to
tlicm ia a daily dnngur bocutiHO they livo
In dudunce of all daw, human and divine.
They aro mere animals and their resources
aro in no degree above the dung heap.
They aro inert dung manufacturers with
out accountability or restraint and sre
utterly reckless of cotiftoquoncui. For
thorn thero is noither bell no; God, to
ward nor punishment, uur Karma, nor
any halting plnco. They will not work,
nud for a living thoy trust thoiusolvvs to
their aonsoa and to their bruto oppctitcs
So fur as the new Agricultural Depart
ment ia concerned the (armors of the coun
try bavo no reason to grumble or growl.
Secretary Husk, while yielding pcrhaiie to
the so-called claims of the olllco grabbers
of his party, is so far as the direct intercuts
of the agricultural chowes are concerned,
following In the lines laid down by his pro
decessor, Secretary Column, who, we be
lieve, gavo general eatisfaetion. llo has
effectively promoted the ono great purjioHu
of national cxjcrimcut stations which Mr,
Column was Initiated to by tho admi
ral ilo resulu following iiHn the man
agement of tlio stations eMlabli-tlied
by several of the Western HUU.it,
Iho boiiuliii.il results of which are
shown by the lint of tho . rimait Motion
llitllrliiii Just h'celvod. From this wo learn
that all ll io Slates and one Territory, Da
kota, now have cxcriiiicit stations, sev
eral Mates two and one (I.ouImIiiiiu) Uireo,
innking a total of forty-six, and with
brunch stations sixty. In their con
duct and management more than 37'J
sctentlHta and ngriculluriHta aro employed
lu conducting scientific: aud practical x-
eritiieiits on soils, tillage, man urea, crops,
foreatry, stock-feeding, dairying and horti
culture. For this puriMMM tho National
( iovorn men t appropriate this year f.V,l.i,.
OK) aud the Slates about f lirt.CKM), muk-
ng a total of f7:,0,Xxj. Tho htations
are nearly all of them in cIishi con
ueclion with the Suite Agricultural
(ollcgca and are in cuusliiut com-
municnllon with tho Agricultural iKc
partinont, making monthly, and In some
cases, weekly reports. This brings the
lVpnrttnclit intocloae con irh lion with the
fanners of tho country as their co-ojiera
lion and observation are invited and their
eieriotices ilelerrod to. Such Institu
lions for arlcntiflc inveetigution ill behalf
of agriculture have U-cn long in ojH-ratiou
in Kuroto. The first ono In this country
wss begun In Connecticut, In tho chemi
cal laboratory of Wcsleyun University,
iiuitecn yrara atjo. Other States followed
the rxsmphi and, in lss7, Congress rs-
poustid tho enterprise nnd approptiated
f 15.C00 per annum for each Suito and Ter
ritory lor lhepur(xne. The enterprise has
enlisted in its support the great uuiverM
tioa, tiesidva the colleges uientioiied, and
tho ablest Inveatiaiors in the country.
The best results cannot fail to follow if the
Wheels and Alliance will only make
themselves Iho voluntary nitciils forseo
ending ao vast aud great a work.

Mr. Andtcw D. White, late President
of Cornell University, In a history extend

cruidandbmt.il treatment of tho iuaane

middle ages, when that groat oruaiiiuitii.n
was dotninnted by ait ohtusciicss and Ig

to Chl ago, and there, as we stilted in
Tin: Aiihl of Wednesday, we shall
lind that an Inebriate named lt.il.etl Hums,
a man of otherwise fair physlcl.il con
diiion, wss literally murdered by throe at-
tetulaiits named Kit hanlson, (gsn an
I'encliri, with the couseiit, In greater or
less degree of the Superintendent, Dr.
Kernsn, and his Assistant, Dr. K bnmsn
The facta of this case of revolting murder
arvgiwn clsowhero in a telegraphic dis
patch from Chicago as they were trough
out before a coronur's Jury, Charles Beck
a reporter ol Iht limrs, being the principal
and a circuuisuttiti.U wtnoaa. At flrst
tho authorities of the Cook County
Asylum were ilisi.i to laugh down the
testimony of Bock, but aupportod as
It is by collateral facta, it "mocks at their
calamity," and has iuduced the Grand
Jury to uudorlako an Investigation, on a
searching scalo, of the management of this
"hell," all who outer which leave hope
behind. By tbo testimony of Beck tho
trio, Richardson, Crognn and I'cacha, aro
nothing hotter than cold blooded mur dor
cm. And so it is truo today, as tho poet,
Iiobort Burns, wroto nearly a century ago,
that "man's inhumanity to man makes
countless thousands mourn."
TIIE RULES OF THE HOUSE.
Die WaiJiimjton Fori In its issuo of the
22d ult. publishes the views and opinions
of many joornnlist and public men as to
tho nccesxity for a modification of the
rules of tho House of llepresenlutives,
w hich aro often exercised in an arbitrary
way and so as to restrict, hampornnd hinder
legislation. "I object," has many a timo
iuiieded and defeated Important measures
and "tho previous question" has boon
frequently rosorted to as a gag law from
which there was no apjieuL There hnvo
Ixicn occasions no doubt when these rules
have operated with benefit to the country,
but in tho bauds of mora objectors, who
use the power to object to punish a fellow
member or put needless opposition in tho
way of an opposing party, it bocotnes an
odious tyranny. And so when "tho
provlous question" is culled to cut
ofT debute and prevent intelligence
from assorting itself, it, too, becomes a ty
ranny that thero ought to be some way of
suppressing. As Tht reterubnrg Jmlu: puts
It, "ono man, or threo men, should pot
have the jiower to defeat legislation de
manded by tho other ."21 or legislat
ors." But this is just w hut results from
the rules aa they stand. Kx-Congrerwmun
II. 1. Money, formerly ol Mississippi, a
gentleman w ho had many years' cxeri
ence ns a member of tho House,, confesses
that "the rules of the House of Represent
atives in eirect, and partly by design, ob
struct business by iuvesting a few with i
veto power. In fact, business is reduced
to a unanimous consent hisis. Tho more
or less arduous and Intelligent work of
committees is brought to naught by some
man who assumes to be more honest or
better informed than the committees who
have reisirted the matter Rule aro also
intended to protect minorities in their
rights, but they should not bo so con
structed as toconstittttoachihin the hands
of a minority to destroy the rights of the
majority. Thero is no good reason why
the House should abdicate lis power iu
favor of a few men unless It distrusts its
own honesty nnd coniefency. It seems
ridiculous that tho House should protect
itself against itself, and that it should ac
cept tho guardianship of the flrst volun
teer. The rules need nmeudmeut badly;
they should facilitate business, protect ml
norltlas, and keep the power In the House
where It In-long v" The Washington eor-
resMiiiilents of several of tho leading pa
)er of the country express- themselves to
tho same cllect, aud not a few of tho
editors of tho principal Democratic news
I a a-ra. With such a Ix-ifinning 7w 'oaf
ought to lo able to cllccl its object and so
cure a modification of the rules, members
of both tho great parties hi tho House co
orating to that end.
A mel ting ia to be held tonight at the
Merchants' Fxchnntfo for the purpiou? of
organising a Memphis Uraueli of the
Indies' llcrniitago Association, to whom
the la-gislature, at the instance of Senator
Crews, recently gave the Hermitage, the
Jacksou tombs, and twenty-live ncrca of
the estate that "Old Hickory" was justly
so proud of. The association Likes this
gift with the understanding that the place
and space thus allotted are to bo cured for
and maintained in the beat possible man
ner, nnd that in all re!! the Her-
tniiagn Is to be made a Mecca for all
American, just as Mount Vernon, the
homo of lioorgti Washington, Is. Asido
from tho local or olitical prejudice that
make the average Tcnucasccsn venerate
the memory of Andrew Jack son, as
next to Washington, the greatest
nan the cotmtrv has yet seen, there
ran be no doubt with any ono conversant
with the history of the country that hn
was its Mvior at twociitleal ierisls when
he successfully defended New Orleans
against a IVrliish army under l'oi keiiham,
and when he removed the public depimils
from the United Slate Bank and thus
compiled Iho establishment of sn Indo
pendent treasury, llesldee this, he reu
deled great service in forcing tho Silbjec
tlon of tho Indians, and ultimately driving
the Spanish out of Florida. Those aro
among his national service. In the State
ho was a ower, and dominated and in
(1 noticed it aftiiir as no other man I fore
or since hi day has done, except
John Sevier, whoso rvtualns are shortly to
find honored intermeiil in tho soil ho de
fended so long and so succemfully. Tho
ladies of the Stato iu becoming the cus
todians of the lletmitago havo assumed a
great trust But It Is ono they ran easily
lie equal to if they are sustained by Iho
j-cople whose patriotism is involved In
their work. To this end a U-glmiing la to
bo ina.lo tonight In an effort, as we have
aald, to establish hero a branch of Iho Her
mitage Association. Tub An rt urges a
large attendance and that the ladles of tbo
city go prepared to do their part of the
work and send to the ladle of
Nashville by Senator Crews an assuring
uiesnago of co-ojeratlou. If they orgsn Iso
and in every county In the State similar or
ganlsatlons are cflccted, the patrlotlo pur
pose had In view is assured, and the Iler
milage may I made a museum as well as
a Mecca, where everything of historic
value connected with or associated with,
or that belongod to Gen. Jackson, may be
gathered and preserved for all coming
time. The mooting tonight should be re
assuring and docisive of results.
A nrffijlO ALLIANCE.
There are soino Indications cropping out
here and Ihero.of, a purposo by the negroes
to assort thoir fnrjopendenco of the control
and dictution of the Republican party aud
to UiI;o President Harrison at his word
and leave tho work of sustaining and main
taining that p to tho white men who
are members tt lu Ono of these indica
tions, and by far the most encouraging,
coinA Iroin South Carolina, whore a col

ized by John D. Norris, a negro of sotno
education nnd prominence, who in an in
terview lost week with a newspaper cor

This lost sentence Is supposed to havo
reference to tlfb political trust that has so
long held tho nogro lu bondugo. But this
aside, the fuct of tho organization of
the Alliance, la a most encouraging one,
and it is to bo hoped it will bo conducted
solely with a view to tho purposes that
called it into existence. It is by Industry,
thrift, frugality and education that tho
negro Is to nao. It Is only by these
agencies that ho can ever hope to tnako
himself acknowledged as a factor iu any
sense in the political life of tho South.
It Is reported from Washington that If.
the matter of appointing more than 100
Consuls, tho President snubbed Secretary
Blaine, and wits sustained in tho snubbing
by tho Cabinet. And yet the Secretary
and tho President seem to understand
each other, and tho Administration seem
to lie working as smoothly as though there
had never luen a word of ditTcrcuce be-
ween Vho chief and the premier.

Nasiivii.i.k,, Tenn., Muy 2. The In
augural day of the spring mooting at West
Sido Park today proved more than a reali
sation of the fondest hopes of the itfanage
inenL The crowd was variously estimated
at from 8,000 to 10,000. Tbe weather was
glorious, the track lino and tha racing ex
cellent. The event of the day was, of
course, the $2,000 ewecpstuko, and when
the great son of Luke Blackburn camo past
the grand stand, a about went up from the
multitudo which thoroughly attested his
great popularity. The race was given to his
coinpauion, Come to Taw, to prevent the
former being penalized, but it is generally
bolieved by horsemen that Knott could
have made the distance in the neighbor
hood of 2:00 had ho boon givou his head.

In tho center of tbe floor is a lino of
refreshment tables, drcornteil in harm on
ixingcolors with the booth in front of which
Itstsnds. with charming attendants ready
lo llll orders for anything, from a cup of
cotleo to a banquet.
The iiper hall was f reserved for tbo
calisthenic exorcises and drilling, which
was creditably furnished by a class of
twenty-four young girlaand the Merchants'
Zouaves, resiiectlvcly. One-half of tho
ball was well packed by a crowd of specta
tors, who showod their appreciation by
well-timed and enthusiastic applause, lo
the inspiring atrains of the Dalian band
the class of young ladies marched iuto tho
hull, and tho gay and brilliant costumes
lent a picturesque aspect to the scene.
They till wore white skirts and blouse
waists, '.he rainbow colors being assumed
by sections. The dumb bell exer

graceful posing, prompt movements and
concerted action evinced skillful training
on the irt of the teacher and ready ac
quisitiveness by the pupils. The march
ing and countermarching was executed
skillfully and without error, calling forth
an encore from tho delighted spectator.
The final evolution into the letter C U. L
Indicated that the charming young per
formers were pupils of tho Clara Couway
The Merchants' Zouaves followed in one
of their characteristic drlls. Those who
are familiar with the excellent drills of this
company were hardly prepared for the
many new and fancy movements which
they executed. CapU 1 sell re y baa not lost
a point in developing the resources of the
compenv, butou the contrary has brought
forth alf the lino material aud sterner si u IT
of which soldiers aro made. It is alwavs
a treat lo see the Zouaves drill, and hist
ovening's performance wss no exception.
The perloriuurs slid s)t-ctaUrs thon de
scended to tho lower floor and spent the
remainder of the evening in fessting and
patronixiog the many delightful booths,
ihe llower booth wss excially tlio center
ol an attractive ciowd during the evening,
and no lady or gentleman left tha hall
without a bouquet or boutonniere. It Is
pleasant to note that this festival is lo con
tinue two or more nights, and can not fail
lo draw the crowd that it deserves. To
night will be tho fashionable evening, and
crowds of society people will seek tbe at
tractive hall for a pleasant evening.
On Saturday sllurnonn s children's mat
inee will be given, and the entertainment
will be made steeially attractive by a drill
from l'ruf. Jones's cade is, a uiiaaiV drill,
and exercises by the Turnvereln class, ..
Alio luunoow festival oeiied so auspi
ciously that a successful continuance goes
towns the gawaasra.
