Father Hyacinthe bas been heard
from, (says the New York Globe) since the
awful calamities which have befallen hia
beloved and beautiful Paris. He accounts
for the terrible demoralization of the peo
plo, and the fall of the French nation, as
the result of the negation of God. In this
hia viewa coincide with those heretofore |
advanced by The Globe, and by many of
the loading minds of this country. He
boldly says the Church failed in ita mission
"lt was too much occupied with dogmatic
questions, and too little with the instruc
tion of its flock," are his words. At the
head of the Church in Paris was Archbishop
Darboy, who is to be buried on Wednes
day, from the Cathedral of Notre Dame,
together with many of his clergy, who fell
before the fury of the faithless and unedu
cated mob. Does any one believe these
men would havo been killed, as so many of
their predecessors have been, if they had
paid more instruction to their flocks and to
the people of Paris 7
Tho Archbishop should have left no
stone unturned to the rebuking of sin in f
high places, to protesting against the pro
longed celebacy of the soldiers and tho
priests, and the legalized prostitution
of women. Father Hyacinthe is a
man of large views, with a heart
for the people, upon whom all civil
and social institutions rest. He says "the
nineteenth century is the age of the work
ingmen," and in co saying he utters a fun
damental truth, already recognized iv
this country by such men as Mr. Beech
er, Dr. Deems, Wendell Phillips, Governor
Geary, and many moro who might bo
named. In closing a recent communica
tion to the Gaulois, Father Hyacinthe elo
quently and truthfully says:
N'aris is in ashes. Tbe work-people have
rod, or say it is impossible for them to be
in or lore Him. Let the rulers, with
whole hearts and brains, consider the I
lem, and labor for the restoration of
cc to faith, prosperity and peace."

■be work-people of the coal regions, for
the poor working women of Boston, of this
ity ? Fortunately for us, New York is
ot yet in ashes. We have the lesson of
'aris before us.
The World's Fair.—The New York
We are glad to notice the hearty tnao
ler in which the South is responding to
le invitation to take part in the great
Vorld'a Fair, to be held in Philadelphia in
876, the occasiou of our centenary anni
ersary. There is much pride and patri
ti»m in the sunny Southland yet, and we
are snre that portion of our country will
do what it can for the glory and advance
ment of the whole. Says the Now Or
leans Picayune of a recent date :
"So liberal an allowanoe of time has been
made that American mechanics, artists, man
ufacturers, and inventors will have no excuse
f"i Doing uuid,, ou- in «i lv particular. The exs
hibition ought to be a thorough panoramic
representation of the continent in all its fea.
tores, peculiarities, and capabilities."
There is really no reason for any jeal
ousy on the part of this city or State be
cause tho fair ia to be held in Philadelphia.
That city is by far the best place for it,
and she will, doubtless, do her whole duty
in the matter. The East and great West

Curiosities of Lifb.—Lay your linger

The Memphis Ava'anche of Wednesday
says : "The caterpillars, of which mention
was made a few days since in the Ava
lanche of having stopped trains on the
Memphis and Tennessee railroad, still con
tinue to seriously interfere with traffic on

eight cars, instead of twenty-five or
ty as before, and yesterday ono of the
it powerful engines on the road was
stopped twice near Nonconnah creek,
Mississippi, while drawing a train of but
seven cara. They are in swams along the
line of that road and literally cover
I track, acting, when crushed upon
driving wheels of the engine, much
same as when the track has been
led by some vindictive and law defying
vidual. All through that section of
country trees have been stripped of
r foliage by these small but destructive

DAVIS'S SPEECH EXPLAINED.
[New Orleana Times.]
It is a great pity that thoughtless peo
pie in certain parts of the South will per
sist in calling out Mr. Jefferson Davis, and
badgering him for speeches. It ia also a
great misfortune that Mr. Davis will make
speeches like that reported from Georgia,
wherein the hope and confidence of the'
| volved in the Confederate struggle, are ex
pressed. Thero is no form of expression
which even so ingenious a rhetorician as
Mr. Davis can employ, of the idea here
shadowed forth, that will not be subject to
misconstruction and baleful distortion.
We, who know Mr. Davis, understand well
What is meant by his language—that
when he hopes to live long enough to wit
ness the resurrection of the principles in
which the Confederate movement origina
ted, he referred to his cherished and sin
cerely-held doctrine of Statesrighra, which
he has ever maintained with Jefferton
Madison, Monroe, and the other Republi
can fathers, as th_ cardinal idea of our po
litical system. This, Mr. Davis has always
thought, was the real issue in the late so
called "Rebellion," and with a great ma
jority of the Southern people he does not
admit that so plain and fundamental a
truth has been destroyed by the result of a
physical conflict and a preponderaoco of
DAVIS NOT A HERO.
The speeches of Jeff. Davis at Augusta
aud Atlanta, Georgia, seem to us to com
mand more attention Irom the press thaD
their intrinsic merits deserve. The fact
that he is delivering speeches at the South,
and that these speeches have a tendency to
revive the old antagonisms of the South
toward the North, is worthy of some atten
tion—just as a Ku-Klux outrage is deserv
ing of notice. The Government made pre
cisely one mistake in its treatment of
Davis—it ought to havo tried him by
military commission, and have hung or
shut him within a week after his eap
tuie. Of course it will do little good
to arrest him now, as, even conld
he bo punished for his utterances,
it would only serve to render him
a martyr. The parade of martyrdom
now makes is simply disgusting. To
affirm, as he does, that the government
did its worst toward him, Is to utter a
falsehood. Of course his thought was
that tho disgrace put upon him was more
painful to bis proud spirit than execution
would have been. Few will believe it
He was shut up in a comfortable casemate,
daintily fed, and eventually turned loose
t'-out trial. A man who seeks to es
:apture by adopting woman's guise
so high-spirited as to be more
I by such treatment than he would
•I\ DAVIS A POWRR'tN THE LAND.
•c words are of solemn import. Wei
md them both to Republicans and
rats. They cannot be pooh-poohed
'erlooked. They come from the
teart of a man who ia still a power
land, a man who haa influence in
ratio councils, a man who ia the
nan of thousands npon thousands
ithern Democrats. Tliey are the
expression of his deepest and moat pro
found convictions, and the convictioua of
bis followers. We ask Northern men
how they like them ? How do you
like them, Republicans, who fought that
man and these doctrines for four long
years ? How do you like them, Demo
crats, who struggled side by side with the
Republicans in the ranks of the Union
army ? Is thia the man you wish to place
again in high power ? Are these Southern
Democrats who cheered Davis on, the men
by whose side you now wish to fight ? Do
not the speech and its reception by the au
dience, aud tbe remarks, too, of Mr. Hil
liard, show you how wide is the difference
between you and the men who are enrolled
under Democratic banners of the South ?
It is the virtual announcement of a Demo
cratic wing pledged to overthrow the
amendments, undo all tho war has settled,
repudiate the debt, and make a final at
tempt against the Union.

in the hand writing of Page, alleging
c held the property as escheator and
it to proceed against it according to
the (Bailey) was the legal owner of
by virtue of an assignment for a val
msideration; that Haroth's personal
is exhausted ; and that the $1,000 was
still due the petitioner. Accompanying the
petition was the deed of trust to Saner, to ses
cure the note. Bailey, therefore, prayed the
court to enjoin Page from proceeding with the
escheat and to give him (the petitioner), jude-
Zfrit" ~ , 000 J be s_? "/Commo_w J ealt_
claim was allowed. This petition purported to
be sworn to by Bailey. ' *
"On the same day it was filed, Page an
swered in due form that he had taken steps to
escheat the property, but that when he had
commenced them he knew nothing of the deed
of trust—the houses and land having at that
time been in the county. He farther stated in
his answer that he believed Bailey, olaim to
pc just, and knew ot no reason why the plain
ill should not have the redress afforded by
law. All this was sworn to by Page, as was
the other by Bailey. On the same day that
the petition and answer were filed, an order
? P ro = ured for tb e payment of the
$1,000 ti Bailey. An injunction was granted
against Page as escheator, and one H. W. Hey
was appointed special commissioner to adver
tise the property, pay the costs of the suit, and
the debt alleged to be due Bailey in fall.
"Matters stood thus until May of the present
year, the commissioner in the meantime
strangely failing to carry out the order of the
court in any particular. Tbe sale took place,
however, on the 12th of last month, and Bailey
bought through a third party, but no money
or title had passed when the bill referred to in
tbe first paragraph was filed, so Holzapfel and
wile were not too late to recover tbeir proper
ty. They now charge that Page and Bailey
conspired to get the proceeds by a fraudulent
suit on the note, when Page was the real owner
thereof; that Page for four years rented the
property out for $16 a month and appropriated
the money ; that all the proceedings of escheat
are a nullity; that the small amount of Con
federate money due by Haroth to Braver haa
been paid eeveral times, and that the complain
ants are the lawful owners of the property "
Both Mr. Page and Mr. Bailey are promi
nently oonneoted as witnesses, and otherwise
with the Haunstein forgery case, in which •_-
Mayor Chahoon has figured so conspicuously.
What effect this case will have upon the testi
mony of Page against Chahoon, the future
alone can reveal. It has now the appearance
of becoming worthless.

expect one of the largest crowds at the Fair
Grounds on tbe 4th of July next that ever as

time tbat the movement might be defeated, in
consequence of tbe grounds having been en
gaged by the Old Dominion Lodge, Knights of
Pythias, for the purpose of having a tourna- I
ment, but at a meeting of the committee) of the
two Lodges last night the matter was amicably
adjusted by the union of Old Dominion Lodge
with the Southern Cross Brotherhood, the
Knights generously waiving all claim to a par
ticipation in the gate fees, and both parties
unanimously agreeing to appropriate the nett
proceeds of the celebratiqn lo the removal of
the Confederate dead from Gettysburg and Ar«
The Knights will continue their preparation!
for their tournament whicb will take place on
Ihe Fourth and will constitute a part of the
programme for Ihe celebration. It is under
stood that a number of Knights from distant
Lodges have entered the lists, and it is ex
pected that many of the Lodges from other
cities will be present in a body to attend tbe
