The enemy reaching your cavalry

with no hope of victory, with little 07'
possibility of escape, they closed narj
their lines with a fidelity of rent

hnd when the United i1es, by there over

Both bides of a Ca;o Argued by Tooumbs.
Toombv, of Georgia, is oe of. the
most gifted of all the erratio geniuses
that America bas yet produced. Like
Tom Marshall and William Haskell,
he is a natural born arator. Mr.
Clay hoard him make one of his.firat
political speeches at a mass meeting
in Georgia in 1840, and predicted for
him then a brilliant future. It is re
lated of Toombs that on one ocoasion,
in the trial of a very important case
before a Georgia jury, ho by some
strange absence of mind, got up and
made a powerful speech against his
client, who was the plaintiff in the
case. After be had spoken nearly an
hour, and was about to close, one of
his associate counsel whispered in his
ear that he had made a mistake
that he had spoken on the wrong side.
For a moment only Toombs was per
fectly dumfounded, and recovering
immediately he turned to the court
and jury and said : "Now, may it
please the court, and you, gentlemen
of the jury, I have in my remarks
hitherto, attempted to give you all
and the very best, too, that can be
said on that side of the case ; and
though it may appear at first I. lush a
very strong case, yet I am conafdent,
if you will give me your attention a
little while longer, I will be able to
convince you that, after all, my client,
the plaintiff, Is intitled to a verdict at
your hands." He then proceeded to
overturn every position previously
taken by him, exerting himself to the
uttermost of his wounded ability to
repair his mistake, and wound up
with an appeal to the court and jury
so thrilling that he carried them by
storni, and triumphantly gained the
case for his client.-Lexington (Ky.)
The Satanic for War.
The effect of the recent treaty ne
gotiations on the New York HerAld is
truly startling. It comes boldly to
the front with fiagq flying, drums
beating and guns leveled, and breathes
out threatenings and blaughter a.ainst
the British Government, the while it
soundly cudgels and belabors our own.
The whole controversy it considers a
hollow mockery, in view of the "hu
ltiliating knowledge" that while we
bvb altogether the best of the argu
ment, we "weaken" before the 6su
perior boldness" of the English states
men, and degrade ourFelves by enter
tainiing their "insolvent demand" for
our "unconditional surrender." The
"timr.idity or incapacity" of our diplo
matic offioers receive the sharpest
scourging which the Herald thong is
capable of inflioting. "We have had
quite enough," it says, "of weak fish
j.:lly fih and Spaniards maekeral in
our diplomac." Those among the
Senators who counsel the "infamous
surrender" will also be pilloried by
an avenging publio, and secret diplo
Inatio negotiations have hud their
d1y. As far thn "ommnorcial fos.ils
and charlatans" who counsel an ac
ceptunce of the "nation:l di grace,"

adequately express its supreme dis.
Grant's Frltnd Vainly Using Soft Solder
on JCffct son Davis.
TAhere was a little social gathering
hore a few evenings ago. A umber of
P'hiladelphians belonging to the Loyal
League dined with aIlr. Jefferson
Davis, the ex-President of the Con
federate States. The Loyal Leau
guers are warmuu friendis of President
Grant. Among them was Mr. D.
Doehiarty, Mr. George W. Chuilds,
and Morton McMichael. They all
felt for Mr. Davis. They drew illus
trations to prove that Grant was very
magnanimous toward the South.
Mr. D.avis sipped his champagne and
looked at the Leaguers with his piere.
lng gray eyes, but said notbing.
TIhen one of these gentlemen poured
out all the eloquence of lis soul in
depicting the dee-> and earnest symn
patby felt for the South by Grant
from the time of Lee's surrender up
to the present. Mr. Davis still sip.
ped his champagne anid was silent. Af
ter listening twenty minutes longer
to the Loyal Leaguers, ho assured
them that a friend in need was a was
friend indeed, and that they might
take it for granted that as far as he
and his house wvere concerned they
would support Old Honesmy. The
Loyal Laonguerb thens disappeared like
a flock of blackbirds.
They who are very successful in
busines4, who achieve greatness, no
toriety in an.y pursuit, must expect to
make enemies. So prone to petty
jealousy and sordid envy is poor ha.
man nature, that whosoever becomes
distinguished is sure to be a mark for
the malicious spite of those who, not
deserving success themselves, are en..
vious of the merited triumph of the
more worthy. Moreover, thme opposition
which originates in such despioablo
motives is sure to be of the .ost un
scrupulous character ; heaitating at
tio iniquity, riescending to the shab-.
biest littleness. Opposition, if It be
.honest and wnanly, is not in itself un
desirable. The competitor in life's.
struggles who is of true mettle, de-|
precates not opposition of an honoera
ble character, but rather rejoices in
it. It is only injustice or meanness
which ho deprecates ; ar.d it is this
which the successful must :neet, pro
portioned in bitterness; often tienes to
the measure of success which excites
