Look into your brother's eyes, man,

Deceit creates full half our hates,
And half of love it slays,
Look in each other's eyes, men,

Could human sin no pardon ?win
No mortal soul might live.

Mrs. Davis and Mr. Greeley-A
Truthful Scrap of History.
The accompanying communication,
says the Telegraph <? Messenger,
comes from a source of the most un
questionable authenticity, and reflects
honor upon the nominee of the Cin
cinnati Convention. Ko true South
ron can persue it with unmoistened
eye, and the rebuke to'Mr. Voorhees
is most withering and complete:
Editors Macen Telegraph ? Messenger;
Mr. Voorhees, in his recent attack
on Mr. Greeley, styled his signing of
Mr. Davis' bond " an impertinent in
terference." Allow me to give yo i
the true history of that matter as I
recently learned it in Kew York,
from a gentleman who knew all about
it. iJLrs. pavis went to Kew York to
consult Challes O'Connor, Mr. Davis'
counsel, as to the be,st manner of
effecting his release fruin prison. Mr.
O'Connor told her that in his opinion
there was but one way that it could
.be done, ana that was to get the rep
resentative mau ot thc Republican
party to sign his bond. Mrs. Davis
inquired who that man was. Mr
O'Connor repiied that it was Horace
Greeley, b?e thoa asked him if he
would no; see Mr. Greeley and get
him lu. do u. ile replied tbat he
had no influence with Mr. Greeley,
and that she was the proper perso[
to see him. She said she would go
and see him. ?he weuL to his office,
sent in her card, and was invited into
his private office, ??he said tu him :
" Mr. Greeley, my husband is con
fined'in a casemate at Fortress M< n
roe. He has been there lor many
lon^, WCaiT juotrth-. -J Lo
old man, and he is gradual]}' sinking
under his "rigorous imprisonment. He
will die it ne remain.-; there much
longer.. I came here tu c nsult Mr
O'Connor as to the means ut' gettiu_
him released, lie has to?d rue there
is but one way to do it, and that is to
get .the representative man of the
Republican party tu sign his boiid,
and that you aro that man. lie has
advised me to apply to you. Ile
says that you have a kind heart
and that .you will do it, if you be
lieved to be right. My husband i;
dying. Mr. Greeley, may I hope
that you will favorably consider my
Mr. Greeley arose,. extended his
hand to Mrs. Davis, and said : " Mad
am, you may, for I will sign his bond
Mr. Greeley was then a prominent
candidate before the Legislature for
the United States Senate. Some of
his friends heard that he had agreed
to sign Mr. Davis" bond. They went
to him and protested against it. They
told him.that they had made a count
and that he would be elected by six
majority, but that if he ' signed this
bend it would defeat, him. He re
plied, " I know it will." They told
him that he was one of the own
ers ol the Tribune, ami if . he
signed this bund he would lose thou
sands of subscribers. He replied,
" I know it." They tsuid, " Mr. Gree
ley, you have written a history of
the war, one volume you have out,
and have sold large numbers of it.
.Your second volume is nearly out,
and you have large orders for that
If you sign this bond, these orders
will be countermanded, and you will
lose a large amount.of money." He
replied, " Gentlemen, I know it, but
it ts rigid, and 1 will.do il." He did
do it, and I am informed that he lost
a seat in the United States Senate,
and over ?$30,000.
To my mind, this docs not luok
like "impertinent interference."

MR. GREELEY'S REPLY.
NEW YORK, May 20, 1872.
GENTLEMEN-I have chosen not tu
acknowledge your letter of the 3d
inst., until I could learn how the
work of your Convention was receiv
ed in all parts of our great country,
and more, whether that work was
approved and ratified by the
our fellow-citizens. Their i
from day to day reached me
telegrams, letters and comm
journalists independent of ofl
ronage and indifferent to the
and favors of power. The
and character of these unconsl
unpurchased, unsolicited, utt
satisfied me that themovemen
found expression at Cincinn
received the stamp of public i
al, and has been hailed by a n
of our country as the harbing
better day for the Republic,
not misinterpret this approva
pecially complimentary to :
nor even the chivalrous and
esteemed gentleman with whos<
I thank your Convention for a
ting mine. I received.and wi
it as a spontaneous and de
tribute to that admirable platf
principles wherein your Conv
so tersely, so fo cibly set fort
convictions which impelled, ai
purposes winch guided its cou
platform which, casting behind
wreck and rubbish of woru-ou
tentions and by-gone feuds, em
in fit and few words the need
aspirations of to-day. Though
sands stand ready to condemr
every act. hardly a syllable of
cism or cavil has .been aimed al
platform, of which the substanci
be fairly expitomized as follows
1. Ali political rights and fran
which have been acquired th
our lai;e bloody oonvulsion mus
shall be guaranteed, maintatnei
joyed and respected evermore.
2. ' All political rights and

so that there shall be henceforth
proscribed class and no disfranc
caste within the limits of the IT
whose long estranged people sha!
unite and fraternize upon the fa
basis of universal amnesty and
partial suffrage. <
3. That, subject to our solemn
stitulional obligation to maintaii
equal rights ot citizens, our p<
should aim at local government
not centralization : that the civil
thon'ty shall be supreme over mi
ry. the hubers corpus should be j
Ouisly upheld as the safeguard of
sonal freedom ; that the indivic
citizen should enjoy the largest li
ty consistent with public order,
there shall be no Federal dictatio
the internal policy of the sev
States, but that each shall be left
to-enforce the rights and promote
well-being of its inhabitants bys
means as the judgment of its c
people shall prescribe.
4. There shall be a real and
merely a stimulated reform in c;
service of the liopuuiic. townicii c
it is indispensable that the chief <
penser of its vast official patron;
shall be shielded from the mean tee
lation to use his power sel tish, ly b;
rule inexorably forbidding ?nd p
eluding his re-election.
5. That the raising of reven
whether by tariff or otherwise, sh
be recognised and treated as t
people's immediate business, to
chaped ?ind directed hy them throu
their representative in Congre
whose action thc President must n
ther overrule by his veto nor attem

purposes of universal beneficence'
expected and sought at the hands
?.li who approve of them, irrespe

8. The public faith must at a
hazards be maintained, and the tn
tional credit preserved.
9. The patriotic dovotedness an

citizens, who as soldiers or. sailol

unity of the Republic, shall ever b

Bacon on Tiitfg?
Everything now a ?ay?s " on time
-to planters," except' me planters
themselves. ? They are a?dly behind
time I ! With the adversamente of
our daily papers as a guide, it ap
pears that about the 'fest of the
present month, there weramearly two
million pounds of baco^for sale in
this city alone-nearly't?e thousand
tons-and a large proportion of it
advertised for sale " on t?ne." Bacon
is cheap enough to live OT, and has
been so for a year. Bacons,' on time,"
I is far dearer, since cojfihission for
advancing, acceptance, djalers' pro
fits, interest, and percentage-for risk
are all to be added ta:?e present
cash value. The planter?who falls a
prey to .these charges wilhjfindit dear
living. Yet the poor-planter must
not starve to avoid dear fiving ; and
what can he do -but buy/fron time"'
I when he has no cash, andino meat at
The matter becomes^ serious.
?Trie majority say they ?innot raise
^hogs at home, on account'Of thieves,
or cholera, or some othfeV'cause. Yet '
we do knowJ?here are . marjy planters
who do raise-ineat at home in abuh
dance. There are one W two at least,
I or more in every county In Georgia,
who are thus successful ?nd thriftv.
This is enough evidence to prove that
the thing is posible, and that our
people need not send to the West for
bacon "on time," unless .-they will
fully neglect their own resources. No
doubt it is necessary to use more care
and pains in hog raiamg^than before
the war, to save our bacon from Radi
cal thieves. And it is certainly neces
sary that, we raise corn, which may
be done if enough of it is planted and
worked.. Potatoes, peanuts, and ar
tichokes are valuable helps in making
pork, ?nd all these may ne had with
ease, if only the necessary work be
done. Surely this great question of
:he Meat s^nply for the South needs
attention, it has been neglected and
overlooked, and needs now to be re
vived. The millions we send West
to pay for meat can be saved at home
atufar less'cost, if our own people
will tfiake it a part of their business
to do so.-Bauner of the South
IN a little village in Virginia there
lived a family named Ransom. They
were not pious people-rather on the
reprobate order, in fact-and they
never went to church. Once, how
ever, during a revival, $he family
were prevailed upon to attend preach
ing. When they made their reluctant
and tardy appen rance the services
had begun, ?Jnd they had scarcely
taken their seats when the preacher
gave nut the first hymn, ?reading it
somewhat thus : " Return ye ransom'
the head of the Ransoms, gutting ap
in a rage and clapping his hat on his
head, " Come along, old woman and
gals, we'll go home fast enough, and
everybody i:i the old church knows
we didn't want tu come."-Exchange
Seldom do we meet the truth more
beautifully expressed than this, from
th-.; Now Yent Nailon: "Relined
homes are the end of civilization.
All the work of thc world-thc rail
roading navigating, digging, de! vj tig,
manufacturing, inventing, teaching,
writing, lighting, are done, first :'
all, lo secure each family in tho quiet
possession of i's own heart; and,
secondly, to surround as many hearths
as possible with grace and ?culture
and beauty. Thc work of all nice?
for live thousand years is represented
in the difference between a wigwam
and a lady's parlor, It has nu better
result to show."
ARREST OF A NOTORIOUS LAW
BREAKER.-Frank Jones, a colored
man, who has beer! imprisoned a
number of times, for various offences,
succeeded in escaping from the guard
house, on Sunday night last-where
he was being held on a charge of
passing bogus currency. The next
day, a short distance in the country,
he robbed an old colored man of a
dollar or two, and tlie next day suc
ceeded in stealing ibout live dellars
from' another unfortunate. Yester
day, in thc neighborhood of Solo
mon's brick-yara, he attempted to
commit a rape upon a small colored
girl, but the nfother overheard'her
cries and went to her . rescue. The
scoundrel made off, and afterwards
turned up nt the brick-yard, where
che employees kept an eye upon him
until knocking off time, when they
got around him and attempted to
arrest the law-breaker. Jones dis
tributed the' brick-bats in the vicinity
quite freely among '.he party ; where
upon one of them procured a double
barreled gun and* brought him to
terran in short order, lie was then
taken charge of by a number of
brick-yaid employees and marched
to Chief Jackson's headquarters. A
lengthy visit to General Stolbrand's
caatle will be the result-Pheonix.

Eleanor Kink tells a beautiful lit
tle incident of the late Colonel Fisk,
which she vouches for as true in eve
ry particular : In- passing out of his
! Opera House one day last winter,
Colonel Fisk was accosted by a' very
beautiful young girl apparently about'
seventeen. She was plainly but taste
fully dressed, und appeared very ear
nest in her desire to be allowed a few
minutes' conversation. Her story
Wits quietly told : M I have failed in
everything I have undertaken in
earning my own .living. My father
is a paralytic and is utterly helpless.
I must take care of him.. To do this
I'must have money. I am beautiful
-thai i know as well as you do."
".Well," volunteered the Colonel,
." and you wish to speculate on these
personal charms ?" "I want money,
Mr. Fisk, for my father,M replied she.
" Tell me," continued this strange
man, " and tell me the truth-are you
a good girl?" '" Yes, sir," sobbed
the child. " And would you rather
continue one ?" he asked again. "Oh,
Mr. Fisk ! of course I would !" she
replied, bursting into tears. " Well,
then," said he kindly, and with
strong feeling, " for God's sake keep
so. Jim Fisk is a pretty rough boy,
but he never hurt a hair of a wo

Too MANY MOURNERS.-A NOT
UNNATURAL OBJECTION.-An Osh
kosh, Wisconsin, paper tells the fol
Last week, a good wife lost her hus
band-he sickened and died. In due
time the funeral took place. The
poor woman felt badly, ot course, but
she was not the only une thus situa

a last opportunity was offered to wit
ness the departed, first one woman
went to the coffin and kissed the
corpse, then another and another, un
til about twenty had pressed their
lips to the marble forehead. AlUthis
time the weeping widow was looking
on. She knew none'of the women.
She was shocked be? ond power to
describe, for a few moments. When
she did get her ??peech she arose, took
off her veil, examined her lost hus
band's face with circumspection, faced
the audience, and "said: l! Until with

that the cold form in this coffin was

than iic did to me. My part in this
funeral is finished/' She gathered
up her cloak and stalked out of the
room as mad a woman as had been
seen in Oshkosh iince before the war.
. A terrible taie of a woman's frail
ty and an injured husband's revenge
comes from Arkansas. A woman
eloped from her home about two
weeks ago. The husband discovered
her flight on returning from his work
in the evening, and at once took his
rifle, mounted his horse, and started
in pursuit. He rode * "without food
and without rest almost two days,
when he overtook the fugitives. The"
betrayer of his family fired-at him
but missed. The avenger in a mo
ment knocked him" from his saddle,
disdaining to kill the seducer, bul

Mr. Hanert asked him, " if he had not
