At one o f the parties to which Kood, on oc-
count of his genial wit was invited, he happened
to bo seated opposite an xtreaioIy veerable
and fine looking man with c. remarkably well form

restrain himself, commenced firing off his squib3,
"bon motj" and witty repartees, setting the table
in a roar, with tho iinglo oxception of his reserred
t'vis a vis" who at each suooeeding laugh seemed
to beaomo mora and more thoughtful. Hood, no
ticing the iatensity of tho man's gaze and ut
ter indifference to the best jokes, became nertous
and silent ; thinking probably that his opposite
neighbor was a second Newton, Faraday or Dar

the table. Immediately the silent guost becanio ex
cited, his eyes sparkled as he looked at the aowlr-
arrived dish, and, addressing flood, said, "What's

exclaimed reticence "them's the chaps for me."
"Now, you seo," said Hood, "while he re
mained silent I lookod upon him with respect; but
as soon as he opened his mouth I knew what
fool he was."

WILL ARIZONA BE ABANDONED ?
Weccpy tha following article, upon the pro
posed abandonment of Arizona, from the Las

under consideration, and supposed as we still
suppose, it to bo ouo of taoso perverse dodges

tion by which it overrides State rights at the
The Ku Ktux bill has passed, and Arizona is
the fir it to feol the chastening rod. Troops 'are
wanted for the Southern States and in conse
quence of tho reduction of tho army the adminis
tration is at a loss for soldiers to give elFeot to
tho law, and therefore, it is proposed to withdraw
the troops from Arizona, under tho pretext that
that Territory is not worth the cost and trouble of
maintaining an armed force there, "so far romov
ed from civilization, boyond a desert so broad and
trackless, that its development as a member of
the Union is a problem of the gratcst difflculty,"
and for that reason Lieutenant Whtolec is ap
pointed a conimiitco of one to visit that Territory
and report upon tho propriety of its abandonment,
so far as tho protecting arm of the Government is
consernod "untill suoh time as tho power of a
great pcoplo advancing along the whole front of
its civilization will make it worth the cost and
troublo of maintaining an armed force there."
Was there ovor a more damnablo and black heart
ed scheme than this t And all to secure the Pre
sidency in 187j to tho Radical party. The
South thub-scrcwed, and the hardy frontiersmen
yielded up to tho tomahawk and scalping knife of
the sanguinary Apaches. And now, let us ask if
Arizona is not worth the powder to wrest it from
tho Indians. Why is it that the pioneers of that
"power" which at some future day is to "advanco
along the whol front ef its civilization" are there?
The answer is plain and those who remember
tho Gadsden treaty of 1853 will understand that if
the price paid for that Territory is any indication
of tho valuo it is worth about eight hundred per
cent over Santo Domingo and can be hold at a
moiety of the cost which it will bo necessary to ex
pend in order to onsuro that portion of that Car
ribean If land to the U. S. Remote from us, and
in time of war with some formidablo European
nution, wi'l bo far more inaccessablo than Arizona
"over a desert so broad and trackless." If Ari
zona has her Apaches, has not fianto Domingo
her Haytian Neighbors to contend with, and to
hold them in check tho U S. will be obliged to
erect and garison frontier posts more numerous
than the wholo of Arizona and Now Mexico put
to "ether. Economy is the bait thrown out fer
thyielding up the 18,000 of the advanced guard
of that "nowerfut civilization" and when they are
all killed or stolen poer what then will become of
a u.-.. viv Mexico. She, too, will have to
taste of tho bittcreup, ior t.;h thnaa bloody
nomads eonia down upon us in almost as countless
numbers as once did the locusts upon Egypt?
