Brings back a tender bygone memory.

The child whose dainty footsteps vied witj
As we two chased the golden butterflies
The child who reveled in the bright sun
And shrined her gladness in ber laughing

We used to linger in the long, soft grass,
And when a sun-ray kissed her dimpled
We told each other 'twas a fairy pas.i
To read the secrets of our Fairyland ;
And, holding safely in her radiant face
That happy Eparkle, we would run to peep

Or last night's bud had blossomed in its

She made the glory of the summer's day,

For sunshine vanished with her last soft
And skies are grayer since our darling died.
Superfluous Words Expensive.
Tho Language Club, laking for a
te. t " Thou hast damnable iteration,"
discussed the superfluous words used
in English rhetoric ia Hamilton Mall
of Columbia College, last evening.
David Dudley Field began with the
Constitution of the United Staten,
which, he Baid, coutained two tiagraut
instances of iteration. Oue was in
the clause that contained the words
that the President should appoint "by
and with the consent ol the Senate."
If the Senate advised an appointment,
Mr. Field said, that implied their con
sent to it. The other instance was
in the clause concerning the power of
Congress to pass ali "necessary aud
proper" lawB, for jf the laws were
necessary they we?e, of course,
the failure of the
his code d >ing
words in legal documents. In the
ordinary deed of transfer, he said,
there were 950 words, of which SCO
were superfluous. In the ordinary
mortgage form there were 1,500, of
which 1,240 were superfluous.
For record Tag deeds and mortgages,
Mr. Field Baid, 10 eenie per 100 worda
were paid. There were recorded in
New York during one month 688
deeds and 788 mortgages. "If my
code had been adopted," said Mr.
Field, " the people would have saved
$591 on the deeds and $944 on the
mortgages, a saving of over $1,500
per month to the people. The peo
ple of the Sute pay over $100,000
per year for supeifluous words.'"
An Englishman ou Commanders.
Some of our citizens will remember
the visit of Archibald Forbes, the fa
moue war correspondent of the Lon
don Naos. He baa written a paper
for the English llluslraJcd Magazine
cn Geo. Wolseley. While we incline
to think that his countrymen have
made him too much of a hero for his
actual performances the South should
be willing to accord' him all that is
his due. Gen. Wolseley was with tba
South in his sympathies and he has a
much higher opinion of Lee than of
Grant. But this in notsingular among
Englishmen. They all recognize Lee's
great superiority over all the North
ern soldiers. Wolseley is made fun
of and depreciated in the North be
cause of bis outspoken opinion ol
Grant. Mr. Forbes has had a large
opportunity of judging men. He has
seen Wolseley, Moltke, Gonrko,
Skobeleff and other celebrated sol
diers handle troops, and be gives it
aa his own opinion that the warfare
of the last thirty yeais han produced
ouly two men who might be called
"heaven born soldiers" or meu "with
a genius for war." These two, he
thinks, are Skobeleff and Stonewall
It ia a good long time until the
campaign of 1888, but the politicians
are already discussing the probability
of the renomination of the old tickets
-that is, the ticket of 1884. It
seems to be the impression among
leading men of both parties in Wash
ington that Cleveland and Hendricks
and Blaine and Logan will be against
each other, unless death or some great
blunder shall break the hold they
have on their respective parties. The
politicians appear to have forgotten
that Cleveland announced himself as
a one term man, and t'.ere ia no rea
son to believe that either fulsome
praise or unmerited censure will canse
him to change his views.

Nr. Schur/ anil Hie South.
We have not read Mr. Sehurz's
pamphlet on " The New South." In
the hist place the profit to be derived
would not be equal to the outLy.
Mr. Schurz lectured and made money
out of the Southern people. He could
not find ont very much that is true
and worth knowing by a rapid trip
from towri to town and State to State.
Mr. Schurz is a politician. He has
been a rabid Republican, a supporter
of Greeley, a supporter of fraudulent
Hayes and Secretary of Interior, in
bis Cabinet, and latterly a Mugwump.
Mr. Schurz is a man of very superior
abilities and he may bo an honest man,
bnt.be is not a very consistent one.
He could sland Hayes, who stole au
office, with $200,000 salary attached,
but he could not stand Jim Blsine,
who got his money by fraud and false
hood. Mr. Schurz may be disinter
ested in praising the South and blow
ing its horn. But he is a politician,
and he may not be a politician of that
grade that makes his testimony spe
cially valuable when there is to be
au election ahead.
A man, however excellent an ob
server, cannot glean much by travel
ling for a short iime in a great sec
tion where the population is scattered.
We know how much this country has
?uffered at the hands of English tou
rists from Mrs. Trollope's day until
now. Only a few people are met and
these generally under the "artificial
forms of society. If Mr. Schurz had
lived in the South for eight or ten
years aud would then write candidly
aud freely of the resources, advanta
ges, peculiarities aud excellencies ol
the South, we would ' be glad to give
ittentiou to what he says.
Mr. Schurz has copied the lingo of j
i set of scribblers that are nothing if
they are not strained and original.
* The New South" is just one of those
:alch phrases that tickle the ear sud
gratify tho eye of a rises. But it is
lot the "New South" yet, we aie
?lad to know. When the traditions

f the past. They still retain a part

It is impossible to read the War
Records being published by the Con
gress and the various papers ou the
war now being published in the ( ea
lury without marveling at the blun
ders that were perpetrated on either
side. If the South had been b eRsed
with only such commanders as Lee,
Pender, Jackson, Jo Johuston, Rhodes
and a few others, and not been cursed
with soldiers of a very different kind
it would aavo gained its ends before
the second year had oxpired, and pos
sibly much earlier. If, on the other
hand, the Nnrfh had been blessed
with only such soldiers as its very
best the probability is that the war
would have ended disastrously for the
Soiith by the end of the second year.
If there had been a Napoleon on
either side the w?>r would have ended

been leading np the battle of Seven
Pines and if Stonewall Jackson and

President Ol-veland does not take
any stock in the abuso that certain
politicians and newspapers are heap
ing upon Secretary Bayard. He has
spoken out in meeting, and declared
that Mr. Bayard is ono of tho most
conscientious and useful members ol

^tremely probable that the recent chan

of Engraving and printie will bring
about tome modifications ol' the paper
money ol' the country. The latest

been con 'einned as abominably ugly,

criticism. Secretary Manu ing's-'dis
