Now, the man Blaine has been to us a

parliamentary bullyUm and the airs of
the plantation with the swagger of a
manly art man and the cracking of nu
overseer' whip, he has trampled upon
our political friends; with letters con
victing him of ways that are not lighted
by exact propriety and a high sense of
honor, taken by him with force from their
possessor, he has put'on the airs of Injur
ed Innocence ; with well, in fchort, .he

worJi of the Southern man who. said to
the Washington correspondent of the

He is the pluckiest man of his time, and
if death claims him now lor his, no one
will mourn him more sincerely
than I." ' f late him and love
him? Rather. paradoxical, but
this h, contradictory as it may seem,
about the fact, for Blaine's opponents
seem to hate and love him at one and the
same time. They hate him because lie is
so inflriially provoking, and lik him be
cause he is so really kind. If a Demo
crat suggests amnesty, he will get up In
his place and howl in opposition, shak
ing the bloody shirt; but the next
moment 1 he will himself sug
gest amnesty and bo cooing
ard billing with Lamar and Hill.
About three-fourths of the time a
Democrat is anxlou3 to hit him on the
nose, and the Democrat ouzht not to fail
to do so. Tho Other quarter of tho time a
Democrat is anxious to cmbruce the im
pudent rascal, and the Democrat ouht
to do so. Political highwayman he may
be ; political pirate he possibly i ; but
never was there a more gallant political
road man or political terror of the wave.
AsTurpin fell just short of being a great

hero, so Blaine has fallen just short
of being '.R jjreat natcMnan,

while all the Itadical jicinut boys of the

is ouly an actor. lie plays
high lladlcal tragedy because it pleases
the Radical peanut boys ; but, at heart,
he is not the bloody rascal of the play-

good man, because he is a hypocrite an
actor, when acting Is not a reputable
profession and therefore lie is not to be
applauded as a man ; but he Is so able in

parts that ho challenges admiration;
and now that lie is down on his back
sick, we find our dislike of him oozing
out at our lingers and toes.lcavuig behind

If there was ever a time In the history
of the city when there should be harmony
between the mayor and city council that
time Is the present; but it is a regretable
fact, that there is very little good feeling
between Mr. Winter and his aldermen.
lie seems to be possessed ol the belief
that they arc perversely determined to
thwait him in all his designs. Last year
when ho entered Into a conflict with his
police force and dismissed Marshal Wil
liams and several policemen, he was loud
n bis complaints against the action of
the council ; and now, because the coun
cil will not agree with him m removing
Health Ollicer Brown, he is making the
city vocal with appeals for public sym
pathy. Ho is going about saying iu ef
fect, like a blubbering school boy : "They
arc abusinz me, so they arc."
We have given to the "diflleuliy" be
tween the mayor and the aldermen some
attention, and do not believe the com
plaints of His Honor well founded. The
charter says the mayor shall appoint cer
tain officers by and with the
advice and consent ol the coun
cil. This provision makes the
council a part of the appointing power.
The mayor should never lose sight ot
this fact. Last year the council con
firmed all ot Mayor Winter's
nominations that is to say, all
the nomination he wished to have con
tinned, and acceded to bis wishes hi al
most every particular. It U true the
council refused to coullrmllarryO'Brien,
the colored man, for Jailer ; but Mayor
Winter did net wish a colored man con
firmed for that or any other position. He
had promised Harry, and got out of his
promise by the kindness ol the council.
He then nominated Mr. John Clancy for
jailer. The council confirmed the nom
ination ; and during the whole year per
mitted Mr. Clancy, in the face of the law,
to run the jail by proxy. This ycir
the council confirmed the Mayor's
nominees, and approved all his removals
except that of Brown. This gentleman
the aldermen have concluded to retain
in compliance with what they understand
to be a popular desire growing out ol the
general belief that a health officer is at
this time a necessity. We are inclined
to belleye with the mayor that the health
ollleer might be dispensed with ; but we
have no doubt the people of the city are
of the other opinion. Why then does
the mayor insist so stubbornly upon his
determination to remove Brown? Anger
may bo the inciting cause; but Mayor
Winter tdioul J get above such considera
tions iu the discharge ot hi duties.
Why can he not therefore yield Brown
to the council and the people t We pause
for a reply.

Tho Mobile HrgUttr ot Thursday, dune

of .Mrs. Short, proprietress of Short'

This place Is, without exception, the

cement of the death of Mrs.
Short, who fur e thirty-live sum
mers overlooked :dl its hospitable
appointments for the comfort and
ilca-ure of hundreds ami thousands ot
guests from all parts ot theeountry, will
cause a feeling of unfeigned sorrow in
the hearts of all w ho ever enjoyed a so-
ourn under her ronf. Other summer
resorts on the Eastern Shore have lovxly
grounds, wide porches, pleasant
rooms and well-l.nlened ta'jles which
appeal to all tho sympathies
of the Inner man. But, at Short's
Hotel, without any'of the ostentation of
wealth, the guests found what? An
atmosphere redolent of flowery perfume ;
exquisite cleanliness wherever the
eye rested ; a house surrounded by
fine "promenades," above and be-
ow, and made up ol large, cool and well
ventilated rooms; a table with which
Epicurus himself would have expressed
satisfaction; and more than all this, per
fect quiet the absence ot all tho f-ights.
and sounds which weary the eye and tire
the ear of the town or city dwellers ; and
iu their stead the beauty of field and
forest ; "in the ear, the sound ol waters,"
the ceaseless murmur of the ever
murmuring bay. Death, "with
his sickle keen," cannot cut
down the lofty trees nor level
the sweet-scented shrubbory of the place,
but lie laid his Icy hand on its ruling
spirit, and the place which knew her
once will know her no more forever.
Thirty-five years ago, Mr. and Mrs.
Short, natives of Connecticut, wandered
from their native Slate down into the
piue-tree groves of Alabama. The "East
ern Shore" was then a wilderness, but It
was a wilderness of fruits nd flower,
"it wua ft goodly cilit to w
What iicaveu had done lui' I but UuIiuiouoUmt."
They cast their lot there, and adding
their art to nature, raised up "Short's
Hotel" and made It one of the features ot
the Shore. Many a weary invalid has
breathed new life and liL-alth beneath
its calm roof, and with every inspiration
of the salt bay breeze has felt as Irving
did when lie dwelt In the Alhambra iu
Spain that mere existence was enjoy
ment. Captain Short died In 1872. Mis
widow breathed her last a tew days ago.
The "Hotel" will pass Into other hands
and continue to be a popular place of
summer resort, but those who knew her
will miss Mother Short," even In imag
ination, from under its broad root, and
sigh as they picture her vacant chair at
its hospitable table.
