Love came knocking gently knocking
At the portals of my heart,
And beseeched me their unlocking,
For a secret he'd impart;
But I laughed to scorn his greeting
And regretted not the fleeting
Of his baffled steps retreating
On their way.
Then again a message brought he,
Knocking gently as before,
And with conrtly tones besought me
Yet I opened not the door.
Mildly chiding my denying,
And my cool reserve decrying,
He, with low and mystic sighing,
Soon the little tyrant shyly
Without warning as before
Pulled the latch-string, and then slyly
Pushed aside the loosened door.
Though my heait was near relenting,
And I felt 'twoald bring repenting,
Yet I would not, by consenting.
- Love to-day.
Could I catch him and securely
Tie his little wicked wings,
I would kne.1 to him demurely,
Tho' I know .hey say he stings
That is he, I know his knocking,
I will hasten the unlocking.
Ah, the little trifler, mocking.

DENCE BETWEEN SENA
WASHINGTON,- October 18.-Secre
tary Sherman furnished to-day for
publication the following correspon -
dence, consisting of four letters which
have passed between himself and
Senator Hampton, of South Carolina:
DAGGER'S SPRING, Sept. 17, 1880.
Bon. John Sherman, ~Secretary of
the Treasury :
SI8R-Some days ago I saw a report
of your speech at a conference held by
the Natioual Republican Committee
at the Fifth Avenue Hotel, New
York, and you were quoted as having
used the following language : "'And
now you are asked to surrender all
you have done into the hands of Wade
Hlampton and the Ku Klux and the
little segment in the North that is
called the Democratic party." May I
ask if you used these words, and, if
you did so, did you mean to connect
me directly or indirectly with what is
known as the Ku Klux Klan ? Re
questing an early reply, addressed to
me in care of August Schell, Esq.,
New York, I am very respectfully,
your obedient servant,
WASHINGTON, Sep. 21.
Hon. Wade Hampton, New York :
SIR-Your note of the lyth in
stant is received, in which you inquire
whether at a conference held by the
National Republican Committee at
the Fifth Avenue Hotel, New York, I
used language attributed to me as
follows: "And now you are asked to
surrender all you have done into the
hands of Wade Hampton and the Ku
Klux and the little segment in the
North that is called the Democratic
party." In reply, I have to advise
you that while I do not remember
the precise language, I presume the
reporter correctly stated, in a con
densed way, his idea of what I said.
I no* doubt spoke of you as a leading
representative of the Democratic par
ty in the South, and referred to the
Ku Klux Klan as a representative of
the barbarous agencies by which the
Democrats have subverted the civil
and political rights of the Republi
cans of the South.
I did Dot connect you.personally
with the Ku Klux Klans. Indeed,
I know you had, in one or two impor
tant instances, resisted and defeated
isworst impulses. I appreciate the
sense of honor which makes you
rshrink from being named in connec
ton with it. Still, you and your as
sociates, leading men in the South
now enjoy the benefits of the politica
power derived from the a'.rocities o
Sthe Ku Klux Klan, in which phrasi
r include all the numerous aliases b'
which it has from time to time been !
known in the South.
Your power in the Southern States
rests upon actual crimes, of every
grade in the code of crimes, from mur
der to the meanest form of ballot box
stuffing, committed by the Ku Klux
Klan and its kindred associates. As
you know, some of the worst of them
were committed since 1877, when
you and- they gave the most solemn
assurance of protection to the freed
men of the South. These crimes are
all aimed at the civil and political
rights of the Republicans in the South.
as I - believe but for these agencies
the very State that you represent, as
well as many other States in the
South, would be represented both
in the Senate and in the House
by Republicans. But for these crimes
the boast attributed to you, that tha
138 solid Southern votes would be
cast for the Democratic ticket, would
be but idle vaporing, but now we
I feel that it is sober truth.
While I have no reason to believe
that you or your Northern associates
personally participated in the offenses
I have named, yet while you and
they enjoy the fruits of these crimes
you may in logic and morals be classed
as I classed you-as joint copartners
with the Ku Klux Klan in the policy,
which thus far has been successful, in
seizing the political power in the
South, and which it is hoped; by the
aid of the small segment of the Demo
cratic party in the North, may be ex
tended to all departments of the gov
ernment. It is in this sense that I
spoke of you, the Ku Klux Klan and
the Northern Democratic party.
Permit me, in conclusion, while
frankly answering your question, to
say that the most fatal policy for the
South would be, by such agencies as I
have mentioned, to secure again the
political ascendancy in this country,
for I assure you that the manhood
and independence of the North will
certainly continue to struggle until
every Republican in the South shall
have free and unrestricted enjoyment
of equal civil and political privileges,
including fair votes, fair counts, free
speech and a free press ; and the
agitation made necessary to secure
such results may greatly affect in
juriously the interests of the prople of
the South. Very respectfully, your
JOHH SH ER3MAN.
CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA. Oct. 1, 1880.
S1R : You letter has been received,
and as you do not disclaim the lan
guage to which I called your atten
tion, I have only to say in using it
you uttered what was absolutely false
and what you knew to be false. My
address will, be Columbia, S. C. I
am your obedient servant,
To Hon. John Sherman.
WASHINGTON, Oct. 18, 1880.
lion. Wade Rampton, Columbia,
Sra-I have to acknowledge the
receipt of you note of the 1st instant,
handed me unopened by Mr. C. Mc
Kinley, a few moments ago, after my
return from the West. I had this
morning read what purported to be
an extract of a speech made by you,
published in the Charleston NAews and
Courier, and, upon your general repu
tation as a gentieaa, had denied that
you had made such a speech or written
such a letter as is attributed to you in
that paper. What I stated to you in
my letter of September 21st, 1 be
lieve to be true, notwithstanding your
denial, and it can be shown to be
true by public records and as a mat
ter of history.
As you had, long before your letter
was delivered to me, seen proper to
make public a statement of your views
of the correspondence, I will give it to
the press without note or comment,
and let the public decide between us.
It is easy enough to make sac
rifices for those we love, but for
our enemy we have to struggle
and overcome self. Such a victory

COLORED MED. RETURNING FROM
rNDIANA.-A ga .ch from Alexan
dria, Va., says :'For the past two
days squads of negioces have been ar
riving in this cit . from Indiana.
Friday moerning a rcupany of ten
arrived. Tfhose arriving did rnot lhes
itate to say that their pesage to Iu
diana from North Carolina 'ud been
paid by a genitlemnan from the N. th,
and that they had left their n. tive
State a short time previous ob .e
eondition that they would not be re
quired to remain away from their
homes more than a mouth. The
spokesman of the party said that a
mau from the North came to North
Carolina about six weeks ago and en
gaged a number of men to work in In
diana, promising to pay their railroad
fare to that State; that they went to
Indiana and were stationed in a coun
try district, where they staid and voted
the Republican ticket last Tuesday,
for which they received a month's
pay; that they had been granted a
furlough upon the promise to return
in two wecks. Both parties seemed
to be ignorant of the purpose for
which they had been traospoirted to
Indiana, and were elated rat the man
ner in which they had been treated.
They expressed the opinion that on
their return to Indiana they would be
accompanied by a large number of the
colored people of their neighborhood,
as they had been informed by .gentle
men in Indiana that there was work
in that State for all they could bring
along with them."

and at the same time good end, by
that very resolution has scaled

IT HITS A BIo CROWD.-Tho
following extract from a sermon
:Ieliveted recently in a church in
New Orleans will apply with
equal force to the "grand army of
starers" who assembled about
some of our churches, much to
the disgust of many : "Last Sun
day," said the minister, "I was--at
my window. and, looking down
the street saw a row of straw hats
in front of the church. They
were all in single file. And I said
to myself, 'Under these hats can
therei be nothing?' and an echo
answered -Nothing !' Surely, I
mused, there must be something
under these hats-heads, I sup
pose. Then AEsop's fable of the
fox admiring a mask and exclaim

is nothing in it,' was remaembered,
and I went away. It is wrong
for those who call and think
themselves gentlemen to stand in
front of the places of worship for
the purpose of staring at the la
dIies coming out of church. True,
the ladies like to be admired, but
this ordeal through which they
have to pass of being subjected to
the glance of a regiment of men
in single file is despicable."
A MIRACLE oF HONESTY.-At a
party one evening several con
tested the honor of having done
the most extraordinary thing ;. a
reverend gentleman was appointed
.udge of their respective preten
:io::s. One produced his tailor's
bill with a receipt attached to it.
A buzz in the room that this could
not be outdone; -when a seeond
proved that he had just arrested
his tailor for money lent him.
'The palm is his,' was a general
cry, when a third put in his claim.
'Gentlemen,' said he, 'I cannot
boast of the acts of my predeces
sors, for I have just returned to
the ownors three lead pencils and
two umbrellas that were left at
'Ill hear no more,' cried the as
tonished arbitrator. 'This is the
very acme of honesty, it is an act
of virtue of which I never knew
any one capable. The prize-'
'Hold,' cried another, 'I have
done still more than that.'
'I have been taking my paper
for twenty years and always paid
for it in advance.'
IIe took the prize.
A DETECTIVE OUTwITTED.-The
following story is almost too good
to be true: A certain railway
company suspected that they
were being defrauded by passen
gers traveling without tickets, so
a detective was sent to travel on
the trains. One day he heard a
passenger remark that it was very
easy to go from Dayton to Moor
field without a ticket. The detec
tive watched his man closely, and
was surprised to find him hand,a
proper ticket to the conductor.
Entering into co nversation with
the passenger, the detective said:
'I should like to know your
la o traveling without a ticket,
aIama frequent traveler, andi
dntmind giving you $1 for the
'Done !' said the man, and, after
he pocketed the bill, he remarked
quietly, 'When I want to travel
without a ticket I walk.'
SOMETHING FOR BARNUM.-We
ara reliably informed that two cats
and a rat are living together quite
amicably in the neighborhood of CJul
bertson's Mills. It is said that the
cats, when any one enters the room,
will take the rat from the basket into
another room, and keep it there till
the intruder leaves when the cat will
immediately bring the rat back and
replace it in the basket. Our iofor
want states that this happy faily
eat and sleep together, and to all ap
pearance are quite friendly with one
anothe-r. This state of things has
been going on for some time.
Life ha~s many ills, but the
mind that views every object in
the most cheering aspect and
every doubtful dispe-nsation as
replete with latent od bears
Iwithin itself a powe.rfuIland per
