i Tut Bnus Ann the Gret.--The speech
of Gen. Bartlott, of Massachusetts, at the
Lexington centennial banquet, in behalf
of peace and union, has elicited the fol?
lowing response from Gen. Fitzbugh
Lee, who was a distinguished Confede?
rate cavalry commander during the late
war: ? ;
. lticHMoM), Va., April 27, 1875.
(Jen. W. F. Barttett?MY Dear Sir: In
comrqbriwith many other ex-Confederate
soldiers, with unfeigned pleasure have 1
read the remarks recently made by you
I the Lexington-Concord celebration.
(At B?ch soldierly' sentiments, generous?
ly felt and expressed, will do more in a
brief space of time-towards restoring
good feeling, fraternity and fellowship
between the two sections of n common
country than all the reconstruction elo?
quence of political partisans delivered
during these past ten years?a period
which you so truly say should have
been sub liberate quletaiiQ.
Your words in-reference to Federal sol?
diers are equally applicable to the Con?
federate soldiers, for they, too, "have a
prejudice in favor of pence," "and I fully
agree with you, that "between, the sol?
diers of the two* great sections of our
great country fraternal relations were, es?
tablished long i ago," and we feel that if
sunh a felicitous companionship of sen?
timent could have found a resting place
in the hearts of other olasscs of people,
the rehabilitation of -the South would
long since have been assured. Its speedy
redemption from poverty and desolation
would nave followed, and once moro, as
in years ago, the North would have hud
the active co-operation of the South in
working out a glorious destiny for the
republic. . The science of government
has beon but little understood by those
who, holding the reins of power since
the war, have sacrificed public prosperi?
ty to maintain party supremacy.
By carefully fostering the "meaner
men for whom power is only a synonym
for plunder," because, having abandoned
principle for expediency, they could be
added to party strength; by counselling
harsh measures towards paostratc citi?
zens to gratify an an worthy vengeance;
by refusing to listen to the voice of an
impoverished people, accepting the re?
sult of a trial of arms and asking to re?
sume a condition of peace and subordi?
nation to the . laws, our rulers have re?
tarded the material progress of all
sections of the country and all classes of
its citizens. ,
As in the human body the soundness
or decay of a limb will in time extend
to and correspondingly affect the whole
person', so must .the political body be
touched and moved by the condition of
its component parts. Therefore, when
we hear1 suoh' utterances fall from the
lips of one who so bravely bore himself
as a Federal soldier, we begin to look
foA|a?4'^th> new?e .sM confidence
to the day Whoti tbo'Aknerfoaa tag, which
now floats over the blue and the grey,
shall..in truth l?e embL&Soued With the
emblem, ??Peace on earth;'good will to
men." Then, indeed, will fraternal feel?
ing' be everywhere restored; then, in?
deed, will trade and commerce be re?
vived between all portions of the coun?
try; then, indeed, will there exist in the
hearts of the people that more perfect
union which the founders of the republic
intended, and to which we, the descend?
ants, now renew an affectionate allegi?
ance. With high respect, 1 have the
honor to be your obedient servant,

Attention has lately been called by M.
Emile de Glrardin to the adroit use that
j Prince Bismarck makes of the press.
"Ho is not only," says M. da Girardin,
"agreat diplomatist; he is, more than
anything else, a great journalist He has
in his pay a considerable number of jour?
nals in Germany and beyond it, which
be' 'Steels in disciplining, hi making
them not through evolutions, and rang?
ing tfiem in order of battle, until.he
wishes to ranch atone decisive blow the
convictions of his countrymen." In this
way he led the Germans to support the
war against Denmark in 186?, against
I Austria in 1886, against France in 1870?
all of which were at first unpopular with
the people; When, therefore, we see the
German official papers onoe more pre?
paring the way for a new war, M de
Girardin argues that the world would be
without exouse if. it disregarded the
"great journalist's fourth warning."

A\ Oi.d Man'h Mkmokjeh.?In Decem?
ber, 1826, I met the celebrate! Charles
Carroll, of Carrollton. The Partridge
Cadets were passing through Baltimore
on their march from "'^fw/^'

"the last signer of the Dec!
Independence." "These are my pt
said Captain Partridge. "And in f
replied Mr. Carroll, "I see the defenders
of my country." Ho was a little, old
man, dressed in a liunu surtout, and in
appearance to be quite active for a par?
son of his age. On our arrival at Wash?
ington we wore marched to the White
House and introduced to the President,
John Quiney Adams. He received us in
the parlor, and was very quiet and
sedate, and no one could have imagined
that he would subsequently flash forth,
in 1844, as the most acrimonious mein-1
ber of the House of Representatives.r
We were next introduced to the 'Vice
President, John C. Calhoun. What a
contrast! He came out to us on the
street, walked along the line shaking
hands, and asking tho naxno of each
cadet as he took his hand. He was the
most popular statesman with young men
who ever lived. . He visited Mount Vor
non in company with many army and j
navy officers. Here I heard General
Samuel Smith, the leader of the famous
Maryland line, deliver a speech, when |
standing on the- tomb of Washington.

duced Bince Patrick Henry, wns his
nephew, William Campbell Preston, of

tho winter of 1837, on the "Michigan
question," when ho took tho Senate by

delightful speaker 1 ever heard was the
celebrated Robert Y. Hayne, whose |
speech on Foote's resolution was a mas?
ter-piece. General Jackson, tho Presi-|
dent, wrote a letter of congratulation to
" im, stating that he intended to have his
speech bound up with the works of Jef?
ferson; and the merchants of Boston had
it printed on satin, which they sent to
him as a token of their esteem, for bis
triumph'over Webster. And yet one will
hear even Southern men talk about Web?
ster having worsted Hayne in "the great
The song called "Johnson's Wife of
Louisiana,' which is a parody on Roy's
Wife of A Id aval la," was written by
Warren Ransom Davis. I once asked
the Vico-President, Wm. R. King, if
thorc was any truth in the line: "The
Inca's blood flows in her veins;" here
plied that it was merely fancy. It will
lie remembered that Johnson was
Senator in Congress from Louisiana
about the year 18(34. This same Davis
also wrote the book called the "Life of
David Crockett," which was so popular
thirty years ago. When Gen. Jackson,
the Prosident, issuod his celebrated
proclamation against the South Carolina
nuliifiers, Davis made a speech de?
nouncing and ridiculing him, saying,
among other sarcastic remarks: "If the
old gentleman must be amused, let us
give bim a te-to-tum." The remark en?
raged Jaokson, who said: "I will make a
te-to-tum of his d?d traitorous head.''
I once heard Gen. Robert Y. Hayne |
Bay, in 1832, "that Jackson bad recently
written a letter to Calhoun -this was]
after their quarrel?and said that, as he
was preparing facts for history, he would
request him to answer the series of in?
terrogatories enclosed with the letter.
If any man foamed with rage." said
Hayne, "it was Jackson when bo re?
ceived Calhoun's reply. It was ho senth- I
ing and contemptuous." By-the-way, I
two fools, Parton and Bancroft, have
stated in their "Lives of Jackson," that
he was a North Carolinian, when Jackson
himself says in his proclamation that he
was a native of South Carolina. This
statement will be found near the con?
clusion of that celebrated document.

AiiEBK'an Laureate Explorers. - The I
I Geographical Society of Paris have, dur?
ing several years, awarded medals for I
j Arctic discovery to Englishmen and
Americans. This year they honor with
the Roquetto prize - a gold medal the
late Captain Hall, of tho Polaris. The
same society awarded gold medals to
American laureate explorers, 1858 to Dr.
E. K. Kano, of the second Grinnell expo-1
dition, and 1869 to Dr. I. I. Hayes for
his famous boat journey in the frozen

Maite Brun, Vice-PreHident of the Geo?

shall award a medal to Captain C. F.
Hall, for his excellent explorations made
in the Polaris. The courageous explorer,
it is true, is no more; but this is no
reason that we should forget him. The'

Since the Democrats camo into power
in Alabama, the credit of the State is
rising nnd the reputation of the govern?

savory. They have accomplished some
reforms and taken steps to bring about
others. About the first work of the Le

tion against Radical voters and fixing no
qualification of property, education or
poll-tax, was skillfully framed to pre?

havo been the ?ehrso of the State during
the past few years. This secures fair
elections, and u Democratic administra?

A writer in the St. Paul I'ress tells a
new story of Horace Greeley. Horace
wrote a note to a brother editor in New
York, whose writing was equally illegible
with his own. The recipient of the note
not being able to read it, sent it back by
the same messenger to Mr. Greeley for
elucidation. Supposing it to bo the
answer to his own note, Mr. Greeley
looked over it, but likewise was unable
to read it, and said to the boy: "Go take
it back. What does that dammed fool
moan?" "Yes, sir," said the boy, "that
is just what ho says. "
A very remarkable exploit was per?

after firing two ineffectual shot*, was

crammed. Cakes, pics and pindars were
mtinched, and ice cream, soda water and
lemonade disposed of with gusto; judg?
ing from appearances, very little of the 1
extract of corn and rye (.iuuch to then
credit, be it said,) was deemed necessary
to the enjoyment of the day.
About 10 o'clock, a procession was
formed and marched through Richard?
son and some of the other principal
streets, in the following order: Band of
the 18th Infantry. The Enterprise Fire
Company, Captain Honry E. Hayns.
This machine was very handsomely deco?
rated, while many of the members car?
ried bouquets and wreaths. On the en?
gine was a very prettily-arranged flow
cry temple, within whieh was seated a
little girl, personating the "Goddess of
Liberty." The Ashley No. 9, of Charles?
ton, ' 'apt. Harrison, followed; their ma?
chine being profusely decorated with
the flowery .offerings of their female
friends. Then came the Chioora Band.
The Union Star, Capt. Robertson, was
next on docket They wheeled not only
a serviceable-looking, but very gaily-de?
corated machine. The "Charleston Cor?
net Band came next. The Vigilant,
Capt. ?ennison, now appeared, so com?
pletely covered with evergreens and
flowers as to he scarcely recognisable.
The drag-ropes of each machine were
well manned?a determined-looking set
A line was then formed and the com?
panies were inspected by Capt*. W. B.
Stanley and J. C. Sutphen and Assist?
ant Chief-, of Charleston. The
ornaments were then stripped from the
machines and the men doffed their coats,
Ereparatory to the "run," the following
eing the conditions: Each company to
run a distance of 300 yards, play through
fifty feet of hose fifty feet, reel np and
clear the ground, which wilt be fifty feet
beyond the fifty feet played. The tank
and judges' stand used by the whites,
last week, were brought into requisition,
and everything being in readiness, the
signal was given, and Off started the Ash?
ley machines, and when time was called,
it was found that they had mads 2.05.
The Union Star made n fine ran and
play off, but the reel was slow, and they
made 2.20. The Enterprise scored 2.07}.
The Vigilant had a misunderstanding as
I to the reel, and were allowed to run it
j over, which they did in 2.00.
I Distance was then played in the same
I order, and resulted as follows: Ashley,
' 165 feet, through an inch nozzle; Union
Star, 144; Enterprise declined to play,
on account of previous misunderatend?
ing; Vigilant, 156.11. The Judges were:
Starting?Assistant Chief Sutphen, ? H.
YY. Purvis and C. M. Wilder; Time
Chief W. B. Stanley, C. J. Carroll and
Capt. J. L. Little. The prises were then
5' resented to the successful companies,
'he Ashley received the siver-ware for
visiting company; the Vigilant that for
the Columbia. In the distance contest,
wherein all were to participate, the Vigi?
lant also took the premium. It wan
generally remarked that the affair wna
ad mirnb'ly managed, and the participant*,
considering all the circumstance, unusu?
ally orderly. The visitors return home
