Mr. Mark Downey, white who died
in this city recently left f 5000 to the
Friends' Asylum for colored orphans
in this city. This is certainly cause
for great rejoicing since there is no
inntitu tion more in need of funds
than the one above referred to.
The city generously provides an
annuity of $750.00 therefor but lt is
not sufficient, by any means to
properly provide for these dependent
The following from Governor
O'Fkbball ls as complimentary to
himself as it ls to the white militia
which performed its sworn duty :
"The Governor thanks the officers and
man of Company "F," Third Regiment,
at Alexandria, for their prompt response
on the several occasions, February Baa,
<Jth, 12th, 13th and March Tth and Nth,
to prevent threatened violation of the
laws at Manaasas, and the officers and
men of Company "D," Third Regiment,
at Charlottesville, aud Companies "K,"
Staunton, and *'C,*' Harrisonburg, Sec?
ond Regiment, for their readiness in
obeying his orders of April 29th and
May 2d, calling them to assist the au?
thorities in Staunton against anticipat?
For the second time this year the State
has been put to much expenae in money
and in the time of the volunteers in as?
sisting local officers iu upholding the
laws seriously violated by the infamous
crimes of more vicious criminals. The
results in each case show that the civil
power is the supreme authority in Vir
finia, and must be upheld at every cost,
t is a pleasure to have tbe prompt re?
sponse of such good soldiers for such dis?
agreeable duty to know that nearly ev?
ery available man responded and that
the duty was well done; and the com
mander-in-chiei, in the uame of the peo?

satisfactory termination of the duty in

THE KENTUCKY JIM CROW CAR
Judge Babb of the United States
Circuit Court in the case of Ander?
son against the Louisville and Nash
ltailrood Co. has decided the Sepa?
rate Car Law .of Kentucky uncon?
Thia is a great victory for the col?
ored people, not only of that state
bnt of the entire country, and it is
indeed a source of gratification that
one upright judge could be found
who iwould fearlessly deliver an
opinion In accordance with the law
and the facts.
lt waa to be_regretted that such a
test case had to be made up and
rather.a mtatter of surprise that
enough ^liberal minded Democratic
white * men could not havs been
found to have killed such a perni?
cious _ measure in the committee
rooms ot the legislature.
We have a much better class ol
Democratic white men in this state,
Although the prejudiced Qov. Mc
Kinney recommended the enact?

to win the approval of the white
rabble, he was unceremoniously
"nat down upon," for the bill wa*
When white men act in this pa
triotic manner it makes the colored
citizen realize that he haa a state tc

triotism and causes him to respond
with alacrity to any call made bv
As to the decision in the case ol
the Kentucky law, there will, ol
course, be an appeal to the new
United States Appellate Court,
which body, we trust will sustain
the decision of Judge Babb.
THE WAIL OF A SOUTHERN ORA?
The mouument to commemorate
the deada of valor of ths soldiers and
sailors of tha late Confederacy waa
unveiled May 30, and a Rev. R. C.
Ca vc of St. Louis delivered the ora?
tion. It waa a production which
haa caused endless comment. Had
the Republican leaders of the North
been asked as to what they wished
most just at thia time, their answer
would unquestionably have been.?
"Just such a speech as Rev. Mr.
The fact that the local press had
to come to his defense and boldly de?
clare that he asserted the sentiments
of the Southern heart, made the ora?
tion all the more valuable as a cam?
paign document, and will cause an
estrangement among even those
Democrats who wore the blue and
patriotically fought for the suprema?
cy of the "old flag."
The oration will check the streams
of finance and paralyze Industries
which might otherwise have felt the
exhiliarating.eflect of northern capi?
tal. For this reason, we regret that
such a reverend, indiscreet trade-kill?
ing orator should have been allowed
to air his views to the detriment of
the section which he profassea to
We know that while the Southern?
ers will suffer as a result, we cannot
fail to feel the blow.
In order to give the reader an idea
as to what extent this Rev. Mr.
Cave's "brains was in his breeches''
one has but to note a few extracts
from his remarkable address :
"I am not one ot those wbo, clinging
to the old superstition that the will of
heaven is revealed in the immediate re?
sults of "trial by combat," fancy that
tight must always be on the side of
might, and speak <r.f Appomattox as a
judgment of God. I do not forget tbat
a Suwaroff triumphed, and a Kosciusko
fell; that a Nero wield**d the sceptre of
empire, and a ? aul waa beheaded; that
a Herod waa crowned and a Christ was
crucified; and, instead of accepting tbe
defeat of the South as a Divine verdict
against her, I regard it as but another
instance of 'truth on tae scaffold, and
wrong on the throne.' "
In any other country but ours
those utterances would be regarded
"Appomattox was a triumph of'the
physically stronger in a conflict between
the representatives of two essentially dif?
ferent civilizations, and antagonistic
ideas of government. On one side in
that conflict was the South, led bv the
descendants of the Cavaliers, who, with
all their faults, had inherited from a
long line of ancestors, a manly con?
tempt tor moral littleness, a high sense
of honor, a lofty regard for plighted
faith, a strong tendency to conserva?
tism, profound respect for law and or?
der, and an unfaltering loyalty to con?
stitutional government. Against 1 bi
South was arrayed the power of the
North, dominated by the spirit of Puri?
tanism, which, with all its virtues, has
ever been characterised by the Pharma
ism that worship itself, and is unable to
perceive any goodness apart from itself ;
which has ever arrogantly held its ideas,
its interests, and its wiil to be higher
than fundamental law and covenanted
obligations; which han always 'lived and
moved, and had its b*?iug' in rebellion
against constituted authority; which,
with the cry of Freedom on its lips, has
been one of the most cruel and pitiless
tyrants that ever cursed tbe world;
which, wnlle beheading an English king
in the name of liberty, brought England
under a reign of oppression whose little
linger was heavier than the mailed hand
of the Stuarts; and wbich, from the time
of Oliver Cromwell to the time of Abra?
ham Lincoln, has never hesitated to
trample upon the rights of others in or
der to tfftct its own ends."
Was there ever a worse tirade
against the North ? Democrat and
Republican, miser and philanthro?
pist, tbe employer and the employee,
if he resides in the North is included
In this unwarranted condemnation
of the most progressive section of
the country tbat the world has ever
seen ! And again :
"At Appomattox, Puritanism, backed
by overwhelming numbers and unlimit?
ed resources, prevailed. But brute force
cannot settle questions of right and
wrong. Thinking men do not judge thc
merits of a cause by the measure of its
success ; and I believe
?The world shall yet decide,
In truth's clear, far off light,'
that the South waa in the right; that
her cause was just; tbat the men who
took up arms iu her defence were patri?
ots who had even better reason for what
they did than had the men who fought
at Concord, Lexington, and Hunker Hill
and that her coercion, whatever good
may have resulted or may hereafter re?
sult from it, was an outrage on liberty."
The above ia rash to the point of
madness. No wonder the conserva?
tive "Washington Post" denominat?
ed him a blatherskite. With the
truths of recent history staring him
in the face, demonstrating the error
of the South's position and his as?
sertions proving that this same sec?
tion fought among other things to
perpetuate slavery, he says :
"They (the South) believed that the
immediate and wholesale emancipation
of the slaves would be ruinous to the
whites and blacks alike; and that, un?
der the then existing conditions, the
highest interests of both themselves and
the colored wards committed to their
iig demanded that the relation of
master and servant should continue.
But it was not to perpetuate slavery
that they fought."
After asserting that the cause of
the war was the attempt to perpetu?
ate slavery by extending lt to free
states, he denies the fact which he
had previously admitted, lie says :
"It was not the desire to hold others
in bondage, but the desire to maintain
their own rights that actuated the
Southern people throughout the conflict,
and it behooves us to insist on this, that
the memory of those who "wore
the gray" may bo handed down to pos?
terity freed from the slanderous accusa?
tion that they were the enemies of liber?
ty endcham* ionB of c la very, who plunged
the country into a bloody war that they
might the more firmly fasten fetters on
Speaking of the rebellion he says :
"a word, when it became evident that
Northern power was to Bit on tbe throne
in Washington and make the Yankee
conscience, rather than the Constitution,
tbe fundamental law of the land, the
Southern people felt that the preserva?
tion of community, independence and
libertv, won at Yorktown and bequeath?
ed to them by their fathers as an inalien?
able birthright, demanded the resump?
tion of the powers intrusted by them to
the Federal Governmon t.
But tbe following will not only be
read with amusement, but also with
astonishment, ao antagonistic are
tho assertions made :
"They, (the South) did not desire war,
uer did Uley commence the war. It is
true that they fired the first gun; but ev?
ery ooe who is familiar with the history
of those stormy days knows that the
North committed the fi rat overt act of
war, which justified and necessitated the
tiring of that gun. They made every ef?
fort consistent with their safety, self-re?
spect, and manhood to avert war. They
parted from their Northern brethren in
the spirit in which old Abram said to
Lot : "Let there be no strife, I pray thee
between me and thee."
But could a more disgraceful refer?
ence be made towards Preeldent Lin?
coln than the following:
"At length on April 15,1861, the new?
ly inaugurated President, transcending
the authority vested in him by the Con?
stitution which he had just sworn to
support, issued a proclamation, calling
for 76.000 men to coerce the States
which had withdrawn from the Union.
It would seem that he would
arouse the young men of the South
to another trial of strength with the
North, another combat of carnage
"Their (tbe Rebel Soldier) example
bids us nobly live for the principles for
which they bravely fought and died?the
principles of State sovereignty and home
rule, on which thia government was
wisely founded by our fathers, without
which no vast territory like ours can
possibly remain Democratic, departure
from wbich is rapidly hurrying the
country to a choice between anarchy
and imperialism, and return to which
la essen tia 1 to the preservation of the
life of the Republic."
His poetic selection ia equally aa
"Thinking of the mighty dead,
The young from slothful coach will
And vow with lifted hands out?
Like them to act a noble part."
"?the graves of the dead with the
May yet prove the footstool of Liber?
From every northern hearth-stone
will go the bitterest condemnation
of these treasonable assertions.
Even ths Yankee who desired the
burial of the "bloody shirt" will see
with regret the waving of this ensan?
guined garment by one who possess?
ed the elements of oratory, but no
judgement, and who appaled to
passion without reason.
The philanthropists who have ex?
pended their millions upon Southern
educational institutions and the cap?
italists who havs placed with lavish
hands their money in southern mines
and inanufacturles will wonder why
at this late day they are denominat?
ed as tyrants, and Southerner's chil?
dren are invoked to kindle anew the
fires of hate and keep them ever
Let this reverend breeder of hate
and "stirrer up" of dissension go to
his St. Louis' home, and weep tears
of remorse over the injury he has
done the section he professes to love.
To the North are we In deb ti d for a
reunited country. To the North are
we Indebted for tbe abolition of slav?
ery. Tyranny could not exist where
freedom was nurtured.
ANOTHER HOWL FROM E6IPT.
A writer in the Dispatch of Sunday
3d inst, over the signature of "W.
W. P." which may signify Dr. W. W
Pahkbb makes some as unrecon?
structed assertions which will tend
to Injure the South almost as much
at* thone of Rev. Mr. Cave, whom he
essays to defend.
Here is what he says :
"l>et me testify for Mr. Cave/ We are
strangers, therefore my testimony is the
more credible. Like Mr. Cave, I have
been a man of peace. Before the war I
made this speech to my father : "Better
than dissolution of this Union would be
the destruction at one fell blow of every
man, woman, and child of the Sou til, or
of the North" also. Did any man at '.he
North value the Union more than I ?
When years before the war I saw our
"Hag" in the Bay of Naples my eyes
tillea with tears, and I would have died
in its defence. But alas ! a few years
afterward I said to a sergeant of mv
battery, "Shoot down that flag !" and
on the steps of the I'ni ted States custom
house here I had a few months before
volunteered to fight "forty years" for
The above proves nothing more
than the unreliability of the "ex?
tremists on either side, and cause
the old commonwealth and the na?
tion to steer clear of them.
They have more than once caused
conservative men to be bathed in
blood, vacated chairs at the hearth,
stone, and left sorrowing widows,
mothers, orphans and friends to
mourn the loss of those whose fa?
miliar forms will in this world never
be seen again. But "W. W. P. goes
"Was I sincere in both these strangely
contradictory opinions ? Certainly.
When I saw the "Compromise act" waa
not respected at 'he North; that to re?
cover your fugitive slave from the
Northern States was to lose yonr life ;
that the marauder John Brown was to
be canonized at the North, then came
the great reaction and revulsion of opin?
ions and feelings, and I was willing to
fight the North till my head was as white
as snow and my hands too feeble to pull
a trigger. This is nothing new or strange.
Solomon said the ''Contentions of
brothers are like bars of iron"?that is,
that wherever a dear confiding friend
has become base, untrue, and unfaithful,
proving himself false to all justice and
right, your disgust at him and your ha?
tred of him will be inversely to your
former love and devotion. This is hu?
man nature everywhere and al ways,and
it is founded on solid reason."
Remember, he says nothing as to
his feelings at the present time and
the inference is that the rancor, the
disgust remains, and the determina?
tion of 1861?5 will remain forever
But further comment ls uimecessa
ry. The radical Democrat makes
the most radical Republican and
Northerners will read with surprise
the statements of these bourbons,
who blindly f orget that although a
Democratic President occupies the
White House, he is a northerner and
his sympathies are first of all with
his own people.
We venture the assertion that no
man's countenance mowed more

Our readers will be induced to
smile regardless of the solemnity of
the subj ct when they read Gov.
Tillman's remarks which demon?
strate conclusively that he is a dem
agogue, devoid of principle and
careless of the obligation Of his oath
of office. Here is what he says :
I said in my canvass two years ago,
and I say now, Governor ai I am, that 1
would lead a mob to lynch any mau,
white or black, who had ravished any
woman, white or black.
This comes from a man who has
sworn not to do the very thing
which he shamelessly declares he
He would be no more justified in
leading a mob to hang a white man
who hail riped a colored woman
than he would be to lead >ne to exe?

Thia demagogic Gc s nor pro?
ceeds further :
I send you u ,i?->-?]
address, in whit
onere*, obligation* tao Vt- > o'
the South are under are set folia in
full. I am on record as having asked
tbe Legislature to give rn**- power to re?
move any sheriff who allowed a prisoner
to be lynched in his custody.
He asked for the autocratic power
which was never given, and even if lt
had been it would have been ptional
with him whether or not he used lt
The Czar of Russia could not have
been given greater latitude along
any one line than that he asked for
himself. He says :
"I have promptlv ordered out the mi?
litia to protect prisoners whenever call?
ed on by sheriffs. I am oppose 1 to lynch
law for anything but criminal assault."
Who gave him the authority to
suspend the operation of the law in
any case or for any off-man T It la as
bad as Gov. McEneby'b suspension
of the 11 w in Louisiana in order to
elect the Democratic nominees. And
"That is a crime which, in my opinion,
places any man beyond the pale of the
law, and puts him below the brutes.
But the law doesn't say no, and
yon are solemnly sworn to maintain
and support the law whether it be in
accordance with your opinion or
Furthermore,bow are yon to ascer?
tain whether the man you hang is
the brute who committed tha crime
or not until you have legally tried
him. An innocent man waa hanged
at yonr instigation by a Mo'* court.
It was afterwards proven ii *? he
waa not in the nelghborhoo when
the crime was committed an i white
men joined in testifying to tb* same.
He aaya :
"The southern people are not blame?
less in dealing with the que* on of
lynching, but all our lynchings not
oi Negroes, and but for the fact' t ev?
ery outbreak of the kind is us* -sa

der and misrepresent our peopi* ley

think statistics wiil show that they oc?
cur as often in western and northern
States as they do in the South."
More than eighty per cent of the
person lyne hed in the South are col.
ored. White per ions are sometimes
the victims because you cannot visit
outrage continuously upon one class
of people without ita ultimately exer?
cising it self upon the other class.
Statistics show nothing of the
sort for the number of lynchings
in the South more than quadruple
similar offences In the North.
The assertions of Gov. Tillman
abundantly substantiate what Mina
Wells haa said. He is a typical
southerner, careless of hia moral ob?
ligations where the colored man ie
concerned and ready to perform th8
most irrational acts in order to vin
the plaudits of the ieml-clvillzed
masses he represents. Lynch-law
