modern congresimen bave llttlo or no

too much ability of tho wrong kind.
e
Bur ono opinion in regard to tho Forty
third congress li entertained by tho press
and the people of both parties and of all
sectlom, and thit it that what it lacked in
corruption it made up in weakness and
that it bas brought dilgraco on tho
American character and the American
government.
Nxbt'b pencil is again at work for the
Journal of Civilization.' Colfax, Harlan,
Vice President Wilson, and other compan
ions in iniquity, come in for a abare of
Nait's attention. Better lato than novor,
but what's tho use of it now ? Tho raind
of the public is made on thoio matters
and Nast's illustrations make tbolr appear
ance the day after the fair.
True as preaching is the following
from the ' Missouri Republican :"
After all the talk about "vindication,"
it seems that the only man vindicated by
the investigating aesslon of congreta jutt
concluded, was Charles A. Dana, tho ed
itorof the New York 'Sun.' The devel
opments that havo made tho XLII. con
gress odious, and its name an historical in
famy, have also shown that tho ' Sun ' told
the truth In Its campaign exposures, des
pite ine noiy norrors wnerowitu tno aont
ers denounced them as sensational
and unworthy of confidence.
Give every man his due. Mr. Dana has
said a great deal about tho corruption of
iuo puny no neipoa to nulla up, out It
aoes noi appear mat ne nas tola any Jios
about It. However, it seems to be paying
a big prico for a comparatively small
thine, whon it becomes necessary to
wreck tho goad name of a nation through
tho shame of Its trusted ropreoontatlvei,
and to put reproach upon Republican in
stitutions in order that the truthfulness of
the editor of a two-cent dally nowspaper
may be vindicated.
The legislative farmer's club intend to
wake up the general assembly to the im
portance of action on tbo railroad ques
tion. The club held a meeting In Spring
field on the evening of tbo sixth instant,
at which a committee of senators and ten
representatives, members of the club, wero
appointed to take a general supervision of
the qucstlou of railroad legislation; to
prepare and Introduce bills nccossary to
secure tbo needful legislation; alto, if the
necessities of tho case demanded, to pre
pare amendments to the stato constitution
to be submitted to tho people, in pur
suance of the constitutional provisions for
changes.
As these senatora and members of tho
houso are all farmeri,tt Is moro than prob
ablo that railroad legislation will be con
ducted with somewhat moro of railroad
speed than it has in tbo Urst two months
of the session.
AuTiaquIet'in New Orleans, ana1 no new
outbreaks between the militia and the

ances, and. very probably will not, and un
less a change for, tbo better takos place in
its now unhappy condition, and this is im
probable and scarcely possible at present,
the picture drawn by the Memphis 'Ava
lanche' of the desolation wrought there
will not ba called exaggerated : "Disor
'dersand deeds of violence, which have
'already' driven millions of wealth from
1 tbo hapless city and made costly houses
'In many districts tennntleti and valuo
less. Tbe city goes to decay; its build
'logs, public and private, are unpalnted;
Its streets desolate; "fur rent" tbe sad-
dest signboard that evor attracts a stran
er's .eya everywhere greets wanderers
'about the streets, and carpet-bag adven.
1 turers and negro mastery may pronounce
' tbe doom ol a once splendid city."
TBS VIENNA EXPOSITION.
Tba proclamation of Gov. Beverldge to
the citicent of tba state of Illinois, calling
attention to tba Vienna exposition, and
recommending tbe people of tbe state to
participate in Its advantages, has an inter
est ferall portion! of the
Uta, and oala for Egypt
than tba Central or Northern part.
Our splendid agricultural and other re
source a tltla sate Uke an equal aland
with oMar ant more cultivated localities ;
it would ba rating eur intelligence and
atrgy at a low standard to acknowledge
that Egypt hat no produot of agriculture
or manufactures worthy to occupy a placo

WASHINGTON LETTER.
Washington, March 4, 1873.
INAUGURATION DAY.
Washington folk and visitors hero havo
been all agog, sinco the curtain fell on the
Crodit Mobtlier farce, with regard to the
grand display promised them on inaugura
tlon day and ovoning; the promise so far
has boon moro than fulfilled. Tbe deco
ration of Pennsylvania avenue, our
principal thoroughfaro, is In exceeding
good .taste and vory baauttful. Flags and
streamers of every Immaglnablo kind, are
flying gaily from nearly every house,
from tho white houso to the capltol. The
decorations of tho 'Republican' building, a
new and Imposing stone structure, are
conceedod to surpass ot,bcr buildings in
the city. From the roof to tho ground,
six storios high, evory inch is covered
with tome kind of dovice, escutcheon,
flag or docoralion. Tbo credit of this
admlrablo and tasteful display, as .woll
as that on tho wholo lino of Pennsylvania
avonuo, is duo to Mr. Wm. K Scheibln,
tbe gnat decorator from Philadelphia,
who makos his business a specialty. The
city is in gala costumo and
tho streets crowded notwithstanding
OLD U0REAS AND JACK 7ROST
Combined bave made a raid on us much
to the dismay of the jolliQcators. It is as
cold as Greenland, tbe wind howls and
whittles, shaking tbo window tash and
banging the abutters, wbilo to tboso who
faco it a razor could not ci't moro keenly,
tho pain is so intense. Evon at I write,
tbe recollection of half an bour ago whon
I sallied forth to the post-office, braving
its wrath and beating my way with bowed
bead, I fairly shiver, and yet cannot help
laughing at tho way that angry Boreas
boosted mo along with kicks on my return
changing my usually lagging
walk into a double quick.
The peoplo in the streets, and they
wero multitudinous, looked not happy nor
comfortable. Large n rubers were In a bur
ry to get away from tho wind and out of
the dust, and a dog trot was tho prevail
ing pace. The dear creatures wero so
bundled up with double veils as to be un
recognizable. Red noses and tearful oyos
were tho rulo, and when tho briny drops
washed tbo cheeks and tba flying dust
settled thereon, faces usually fair to look
upon wero streaked ilka tho Teton Sioux
Indians. Mustaches covered with a frosty
coating wero quite numorous, while inon
dashing frantically after their head gear
wero too common to attract attention.
Tho temporary stands erected along the
avenue on which seats were furnished
at one dollar per scull, did not do well,
owing to the severe cold wind, though It
is computed that tbero aro at least 30,000
strangers here.
TUB HALL.
Tbe inauguration ball to-night
will be a magnificent affair.
The bulidlnc erected csnoclnllv
for this purpose Is 300 feet long by 150
wido, and supplied with overy possible
convenience in evory respect. The deco
ration of tbo ball room Is all that good
taste, and an eyo for tbe beautiful could
desire. It was intendod by some of the
fawning servile worshipers of tbe golden
calf, so woll represented by Ulysses S.
Grant, to placo over tho president's chair
tho inscrtption, "Kcce Homo." A growl
In one of the papers hero as to tho impiety
and irreverence of it, changed tbo minds
of the decoration committoe, and tbo
words "Grant and Wilson" wore substi
tuted. Tbe debasement and crawling
subiorvlency of some Washlngtonlans,who
would eat dirt for dollars, is well Il
lustrated in coupling Christ and Grant
by words that are never used except when
referring to tbo ton of God. These people
prefer serving Grant to Christ, bocauso It
pays bettor in tho present, and they don't
take stock in anything so uncertain as an
Investment that pays a dividond in tho
world to couio.
TUB SUITER
Will bo all that can be desired. It Is cal
culated that it will tickle the palate of the
most exacting epicure, and astonish 'the
stomachs of those from the rural districts,
the delicacies will bo so numerous and ex
cullent. The entlro stock of edibles was
cooked in Nov York by professor, uiaik
ye, Professor Torhlllon, who was Dehnoni
co's ehtf de cuisine for many years. To
glvo an idea of how much feed will bo re
quired I may say that of somo Ufty differ
ent dishes tberu will bo 10,000 fried, 0,000
scalloped and 8,000 pickled oysters, OS
boned and 75 roast turkeys, 160 roast
cupons, 200 hams, 400 patridges, 3,000
tongue sandwltcbet, 2,000 pounds of lob
sters, 0,000 aggs boiled for salads, 8,000
rolls, 2,600 loaves of bread, 100 gallons of
chocolate, eto. It Is calculated that from
fifteen to twonty thousand persons will
partake of the spread, from a dish of
cream up to a solid square meal.
tiik rabcEaaioN.
At 10 o'clock the procession, eacorting
the president moved from tbe White House
down Pennsylvania avenue to tbe capltol.
It was a magnificent display at it swept
down the broad wooden pavement of the
avenue and was full half an hour in pus
log. The soldiery that attracted most no
tice ware the marines who aro itationod
here, tbo West Point and Annapolis
oadett, the St. Louis National Guards, Oo.
A," the. old Guard of New York, the
Albany Burgess corps, the Boston Lancers
(cavalry), tbe Washington Grays and tbo
First City Troop (cavalry) of Philadel
phia. Tba rich and beautiful uniform and
soldiery bearing of the latter lade thorn
tbe cynosure of all eyes, especially those
of tho ladies. Thit troop wai organized
in ye city of brotherly lovo in 1814 and
has continued evor since. The Clh Mary
land and the 2d Connecticut roglmonts ar
rived too late to join the procession, but
made qulto a sensation ly tbelr soldierly
appearance and marching. As I write the
procession, escorting tbo president back to
tbe White Uouso, Is passing ray window,
tbe job of reorganising Grant Into presi
dent having been finished.
what now ?
Gen. Grant has been prosldent for four
years, and In no captious or fault-finding
spirit, 1 ask, will the next four yoars bo
but a piece of tho past, or will a change
for tho better be mado? Gen. Grant is
capablo of doing better or doing worso, as
bis judgment, guided sololy by his inter
ests, may dictate Is this unusual and
brilliant military display significant that
what has so often boen prodictod will come
to pass 7 Does tho following from tho
Ropublican' mean anything, or is It
merely tho vapid utteranco of unthinking
mediocrity transferred to paper 7 It says
"once for all, partiet and politician) had
litter understand ihat he it the master of
them all." Tho Italics aro mino. Tho writer
evidently folt that "master" was rathor a
harsh word to throw in tbo Amorican faco
and bo added "master because tbe peo
plo aro mastor, and havo mado bim the
minister and executor of tbolr will. It Is
true that bo owes somo alloglonco to tho
men who stood with him In tbo front line
of the battle." Of course tho soldier must
bo patted on tbe back. Thero never was
a usurper of power yet that did not claim
to act through God or tbo people, and in
every case tbe soldier shared tbe power, or
liconso and plunder. The artlclo says that
Grant's "first torm closes In a blazo of
glory, tbo glory of peace." Yes but as
tbo blaze died out tho smoke smelt of ne
potism, black Fridays, Tom Murphys, cor
ruption, bribery, election frauds, .usurpa
tion of power and Credit Mobiller. Such
Income is not ploasing to tho publlo nostrils.
AN EAST TENNESSEE TRAG.
EDY.
THE FATHER, SON AND SON-IN-L&W
tKILLKD.
rXashvllle Union and Atnprlrnn.1
The moan of anguish and tba sob of
aeapair are never more piteous than when
wrung from the crushed heart of an un
loved wife, tho most unaaDnv condition
human depravity bas ever invented; and
yet the wife of Dan Sutton, in Hancock
county, waa an unloved wlfo, her hus-
oanu naving itu nis Home ana
commenced hvin'e with a disronutablo fe
male. To add, if possible, moro tor
ture 10 me wue ana inotuor a breast, Her
son, John Sutton, went to resido with his
father, who, at differont times, as if
cuecaea oy no moral restraint, visited bis
home and took much property from thero
to tbo houso of his female contort. Wm.
Sutton, who remained with bis mother,
procuring a writ of rcplovln. nr.d ac
companied by his brother-in-law, Barnett,
went to tbo woman's houso. and. takinc
possession of a horse his father had taken
tboro, started to return.
Wm. Sutton was a red at by his father
with a rifle; and now ensued a sceno
scarcely equaled in tbe annals of frenzied
crime or tbe hlstory.of tbe meanest guilt.
Having missea nis mark, tno (atnor drop
ped nis rme. anu, seizing an ax, ruined to
ward his son-in-law. who vainly en
deavored to avoid tho stroko of death.
With an arm nerved by madnoss the hx
was burled in tho skull of
Barnett, who tank quivering to
tbe ground, dying in n puol of blood.
Not yet satisfied with his awful
death-work, the father endeavored to
filant tbe blood-stalnod axe in tho bead of
lis son, Wm. Sutton. In order to save bis
own life, Wm. Sutton drew bis pistol and
fired. With a wild scream tho father
sprang forward, the axe dropping from
his nerveless bands, and fell tbot through
tno neart. jonn Button, wno was living
with his father, seized the doad BarnottNj
pistol and commenced firing on his
brother William. The two brothers
noar enough to grasp oach
other's hand fought till overy
load had been dlsobarired. Havinir
no more loads they pummoled each other
over the head some time with tbelr pistols,
which tboy.flnallv dropped, and used their
bowla knives. Thus the two brothers
fought, until from loss of blood they sank
exhausted to tho ground. John Sutton
had one of his hands almost sevorcd from
the wrist and his chin cut off by tbe knife
of bis brother William, who, dospito bis
severo wounds, managed to cscapo.
At last accounts John Sutton was
thought to bo dying. We bavo never
pencilled a moro frightful picture than
this one, In which honor, manhood, and
the loftiest of human love bavo boon out
raged by the most hideous passion vico
and depravity engonder.
TERRIBLE ADVENTURE OF MISS
ANNA DICKINSON.
Mis Anna Dickinson bns had many
curious advontures In keoplng her lecture
appointments, but Bono funnier than that
which occuied In New Jersoy a fow
nights since, ns told by tbo Jorsey City
Journal. She was engaged to lecture at
tho Opora-houso, Newark, and was a pus.
songer from Juriuy City on an evening
train of which Mr. Crano was- tho "uen
tlcmanly . conductor," She Intonded to
alight at thu Market-street depot, but for
some unexplained reason she was taken to
South Broad strcot, somo dlttanco be
yond. "Wbon Mr. Crane's train stopped
at this station," says the Journal, "ho
found that tho only way bo could get
Miss Dickinson over tho swamp which
lies between tbe tracks and tbo streot on
which was a horse-tar. was to take her on
his back and wade through the mud and
3uagmiro, in soma places knee derp to
ry land. Miss D. found there was' no
help for It, and, covering her face with
her veil to bide her blushes, put hor arms
about Mr. O.'a neck; which, doubtless
for bim, was not an altogether unpleasant
operation, and left the rest to fate.
Wben half through tho swamp of dan
gers, the conductor callod lustily to tbe
driver of tho hone-car to "hold on;"
but the Jehu wat hard of bearing, and to
tho louder the conductor yelled, the more
energetically the driver whipped Into a
run bis "jaded steeds," But we can not
continue this painful sceno. Suffice it to
say that tbe conductor yelled "bloody
murder," that some passengers on tbe car
beard the cry, and that finally Mist
Dickinson and hor poor jaded steed were
lifted up to dry. land and happiness.
"Anna" concludet the Journal, '.'never
looked prettlor, imlloJ tweeter, or deliv
ered her thoughts In a more musical tono
than she did last week, and it wst no
ticed all .through tbe lecture that hor
oyos fairly laughed at the recollection ol
tho funny manner In which she wat
landed In Newark."
OAKES AMES.
From tlie'Wasblngton Capital.
This man bad to bo searched to bo teen,
no Is not remarkable In oppearanco whon
found, Ho Impresses ono as a man pos
sessed of tho dull, doad naturo of an ani
mal. Ho reminds us of n boar, grunting,
rooting and sleeping In the midst of tho
noisiest and most exciting scenes.
Ho Is a fair specimen of his tort of man,
so unfortunately cjmmon among us. We
mean tbe so-called sclf-mado, who havo
grown rich through their instincts, sus
tained by selfishness, moanness, and In
tonsn stupidity. As a hog gathers a bed
beforo a viewless storm, such a man will
make money. All that lie touches turns
to cash. A man of brain may through
montal process accomplish the samo re
sult. A wild gooto will fly a thousand
miles directed by its instincts. Sclonco
teaches a man to follow tbo snmo cnurao
guided by a compass. But instinct is tbo
better bccaitso tbo easlor.
To punish such a man thero is but one
way, and that is to takn his money. Oakes
Ames is calm and self-potsossod in a trial
whoro even an innocent man, such as
Garfield, suffers, becnuco ho laughs at dis
grace. What to him Is expulsion If in
that expulsion ho carries away his be
loved millions?
Ho saiJ to Roesslo, of the Arlington,
one day, "I havo somo friends comlne to
consult with mo. Can I not have somo
p1ao to meet thorn whero thoro is a fire 7"
"Certalnlv." rosnonded tho uollts Roes-
sle; "I will havo a flro in n private parlor
at once."
"No," was tbo response, "that will bo an
extra expenso. I will sro them in ono of
those publln rooms." And so ho did.
