by his last w 11. These young ladies,
who have been distressed beyond meas
ure by the malisn-.uit and scandalous
wrangling over the grave of their fath
er, vesterday gave peremptory in
structions to their counsel to make a
full surrender of all their rights and
interests in tho matter, aud to allow
the executors of a former will full dis
cretion in tha management of the affair.
The formal dc. :!' -i of the Surrogate
will be given next ( tk. and what re
mains of Mr. Greeley's little property
wi'lthenbe subject to the disposition
of Mr. Storrs and Mr. Manning.

Greeley made of his estate, waijthatie

witnesses have been placed upon the
stand, all holding decided opinions
against the perfectly simple and nat
ural provisions of the will, who have
consumed several days in what may
have appeared to them agreeable gos
sip about the last days of their old.
friend, in which every eccentricity of
phrase, every utterance of melancholy
which fell from his lips, was carefully
remembered or ingeniously distorted,
in a manner which furnished highly
interesting manner for listless readers,
and inflicted the keenest anguish upon
all to whom he was dear. We know
not what impression all these trivial
reminiscences produced upon the mind
of the Surrogate or of the public. They
have certainly altered no jot of the con
victions entertained in regard to Mr.
Greeley's fatal illness by his nearest
friends and associates. His death was
the result of a life of continual over
work. Tho prodigious mental labor of
years prepared that critical state of
nervous exhaustiou which rendered
him incapable of supporting the blow
inflicted by the death of his wife.
During the last summer especially tho
strain upon his powers was too great
tor endurance. Obeying the summons
of his political friends, he made thoso
remarkable turs through New Eng
land and the West, delivering a sales
ol speeches which for variety, scope,
and effectiveness have no parallel in all
our history; and when, wearied and
exhausted by these labors, and de
pressed by the consciousness that the
cause he represented was doomed
defeat, he was called to the bedside
of his dying wife. Ho watched for
weeks by her pillow with unselfish
and even imprudent devotion, and
when the end came the injury dono
to his high-wrought and sensitive or
ganization was too great to be repaired.
Acute inflammation of the membrane
of the brain set in, which ran its course
and ended in death . But before it was
developed, while his reason still held
its sway, he recognized tho fact that
his fortune had been impaired by vari
ous unfortunate investments in South
ern railroads and the like, and especi
ally by loans to persons who had pos
sessed an undue degree of his confi
dence. Since his latest will was made
his wifo was also gone; and the circum
stances being thus sadly and com
pletely changed he concluded to cancel
all former wiis, made in more pros
perous times, and leave his entire
property to his' daughters, to whose
proper support unless more bad debts
could be collected than seemed then
(or seems now) possible it was barely
Unfortunately he did not destroy
former will made in 1871, in which two
old friends, Messrs. Storrs and Man
ning, and a business associate. Mr. Sin
clair (w'ho is now a bankrupt debtor
too estate.) were named as executors,
For reasons satisfactory to these gen
tlemen they concluded to contest tho
will. Mr. Sinclair subsequently with

making no charges against the perfect
integrity of Messrs. Storrs and Man
ning. They were doubtless influenced
by no worse feeling than that
Wounded self-esteem, though they
finally persuaded themselves that
their consciences required them
stand between Mr. Greeley's daughters
and his property, and their attitude
the orphans of their friend has been
that of frank and sincere hostilitv.
They have seemed convinced that tho
very fact of Mr. Greeley's making
will in which their names were not
mentioned was prima facie evidence
of insanity. A neighbor of Mr. Gree
ley, at Chappaqua, Mr. Isaiah T. Wil
liams, who seems from the papers
the hands of the temporary adminis
trator to. do a aeotor to the estate.
threw himself with especially energetic
malice into the case, and has been
throughout the moving spring of
the opposition to the last will. Even
on yesterday, after the surrender was
complete, this man made a speech full
of charges and insinuations so brutally
malignant and recklessly untrue that
seeme impossible that a person in his
senses should have uttered it. .
The tacts m favor of this will were
plain and obvious. It was in itself
better, more simple, more intelligible
will than than the other. It made
perfectly reasonable and logical dis
position 01 tne property, it was writ
ten throughout in the peaceful retire
ment of Chappaxfua, in his own hand
writing, and signed with his own
name, while Mr. Greelev was still the
active editor of the Tribune, writing
daily articles irreproachable in thought
and in manner, it was executed
bis last hours, when the delirium of fe
ver was over and the peace of approach
ing dissolution was upon him. To offset
these facts, the executors of the will
1871 had no resource but the accumula-J
tion of gossip to prove the deep melan
choly which clouded the last days
tho great journalist. Nothing was
sacred from these mousing investiga
tors. They witnesses they called posi
tively revelled in the sad details
those hours of fever and sorrow.
tho scandalous and distressing scene
went on the family and friends of Mr.
Greeley exhausted every expeelient
compromise and persuasion. Miss
Greeley had already forestalled any un
generous insinuations by conveying
her sister half of tho estate and by
to satisfy the claims of nil lega
tees by the former will. Nothing
could soften the inflexible hostility
the executors. A last effort was made
by the editor of this paper, acting
behalf of the Misses Greeley to arrive
at some point of agreement which
might obviate the shamelul spectacle
of the long and useless quarrel.
was made in vain. Tho executors
with a decision and promptness
which showed how deeply their feed
ings of self-love were unconsciously
They and their attorney pre
pared a new batch of evidence, dealing
with the most intimate details of
long course domestic life, with the sick
room and death-bed. At this point
the fortitude or the orphans gave way.
They preferred to sacrifice their own
interests anato suner ineiasi win onneir
father to go by the board rather than
to expose the'sacred mysteries of his
agony to tho gaze of.tho wolrd. They

THE HOME OF JEFFERSON.
Monticello In Litigation—A Complicated
The former home of Thotna3 Jeffer
son, says the Lynnchburg Republican,
of January 12, located ou the Montieel
lo mountain, near Charlottesville, Al
bemarle county, is in litigation at
present before tho Supreme Court of
Virginia. It is well known that Mr.
Jefferson expended a large fortune in a
lavish hospitality and died poor. Mon
ticello, his estate, was sold, and pur
chased by Commodore Levy, of the
United States Navy. Commodore
Levy devised tho estate at his death to
the United States, as trustee, for the
purpose cf establishing an agricultural
farm on which to educate to agricultu
ral pursuits children of the warrant
officers of the navy whoso" fathers were
dead. In aid of this scheme he also
devised $300,000 worth of property in
New York. In the event of the Unit
ed States not accepting the trust, he
provided that tho State of Virginia not
accepting the trust, ho devised tho
property to the Porugose Hebrew con
gregations of , New Y'ork, Philadelphia
and Baltimore for the benefit of the
children of those societies whoso fath
ers were dead. His legal heirs brought
suit in New York to set aside these
provisions of the will. The Court in
New York declared the charity too in
definite, and that tho Uniteel States
could not take the property as trustee.
Virginia not beiug a party to the suit,
Instituted a suit for its recovery as sec
ondary trustee. Tho case is at present
being exhaustively argued in the Su
preme Court of Virginia, now in ses'
Pinchback on the Situation.
Mr. Pinchback, of Louisiana "Gov
ernor Pinchbaet, by courtesy," as
Gen. McMillan, says is reported to
have summed up the situation of Lou
isiana affairs about in this wise:
The "Lynch Board" wa3 the legal
board, but it had no official returns;
the "Do Ferrit Board" was illegal, but
had the official returns. The legal
board could make no legal returns
without the official returns, and the il
legal board could make no legal re
turns without them; cousequentlp, no
legal returns were uiade.
Senator Morton and General Butler,
whom he considers the most extreme
of the Republicans, he doesn't believe
can go so far as to recognize the Kel
logg Government, and. no ono will
recognize that of McEnc-rjV I' TiT
In this predicament the only thing
to be done is that Congress shall pro
ceed under that clause of the Constitu
tion which provides that the United
States shall guarantee to every State in
this Union a republican for.-j of gov
ernment, and declare that; no such
government exists in Lqujoianp, and
provide for its establishment by an
election to lie held uncer Federal au
spices. . "
In this event it is by no means -certain
that the Republicans would carry
tho day. Mr. Pinchback thinks that
the Republicans have a majority of
the votes in the State, but says that all
the money and most of the energy is
on the other side-. In the absence of a
national canvas the Republicans can
get no material aid outside otthe State,
and therefore cannot bring out their
full vote. Besides that, the colored
voters supposed that a Republican Ad
ministration and Congress would sus
tain theai in any event, and they will
fall into apathy when they find them
selves, as they, well suppose, deserted.
A Convict Artist.
The Boston Post, in the coarse of f n
interesting article on the Massachusetts
State Prison, thus describes one of the
prisoners: . . j;, .-
In the same room is a man by the
name of Darling, who fa also serving
out a life sentence, for highway rob
bery. He has been here several years,
and is yet a young man. He is a line
looking convict and yet a young man,
a genius, and notwithstanding the fact
of his imprisonment, he asserts his de
termination that tbe world shall yet
acknowledge his power. He is a re
markably good artist, and he showed,
at the request of the officer, a piece of
work on which he was engaged, and
which he intended for a present to
lady in Cambridge, who has been very
kind to him. It is au illustrated copy
of Gray's Elegy, which ho is making,
printing ami all, with pen and brush.
Thelitle-page is.exquisitely illustrated
and all the illustrations are as carefully
finished as steel .engravings- The
drawing is spiriteel and the whole con
ception good. He has seized the spirit
of the poem with a ' correctness and
fklelity that show an entire apprecia
tion. 'He i3 justly. very proud of his
workand his eyes shone as praise fol
lowed on examination of it.-. . ,
"Has.it taken you long?". . ...
"Eitrht months to do what you see
there; but I can only work at it about
an hour and a half a day. If I could
j but give my whole time to it" and he.
1 turned away to the drudgery of his
! cvervdav toil. -This man was made
tor better things, but he went wrong,
and by his own action made his life
failure, and to such . rare promise
brought such sad fulfillment. .
Tobacco Versus Intellect.
A t the nearest "csiculatiori the inter
nal revenue report of last year showed
that the United Sta tes consumed about
ten million cigars during that time.
Many old smokers prefer the pipe
the cigar, and probably as much tobac
co is consumed in that way. as in ci
gars. However out of the way numer
ically the previous statement may be,
it is true that that there are in this
country 12,294 manufacturers of cigars,
and they employ 71,491 men. Where
ever tobacco can be raised, the farmer
finds it one of the most .profitable
crops, and consequently is very apt
cultivate it. Its use . increases from
year to year in a greater ratio than the
population. . People differ so widely
to its effects that it is only just, when
ever a candid statement is made of any
test, to give it publicity. Recently,
the Polytechnic School in Paris, one
the professors inquired into the habits
of the one hundred and sixty students
there, and then made a comparison be
tween their devotions to study and
smoke. He found that one hundred
and two were smokers and fifty-eight
never used, or "said they never used,
the noxious weed. He then found
that in each grade of the school the stu
dents who did not smoke, out-ranked
those who did smoke, and that the
scholarship of the smokers steadily de
teriorated as tho smoking continued.
On account of several trustworthy re
ports of such a nature the Minister
Vnhlip Instruction in France issuea
circular to the directers of colleges and
schools forbidding tobacco to students
as injurious to physical and intellectual
development. But a writer in a Paris
medical journal complains that the use
of tobacco will Dot probably cease en
tirely so long as Sunday schools fur
nish meerschaum pipes as prists to tne
best scholars. Hartford OuwranL
