on. Emerson Etheridge Is conceded
to be one of the ablest atump speakers
of the State. He has had a public ex
perience as lawyer, member of the Leg
islature, of Congress, candidate for Gov
wotr, etc. running back nome thirty
years. He is not a close reasoner or a
very sound logician, but his powers of
sarcasm and ridicule are very rarely
found. He is likewise eloquent, pa
thetic and forcible by turns, as his
strong impulses may move hira. He is
of a restless, nervous, combative nature,
and seems to chafe under the restrain s
of retiracy. Such a man cannot long
submit to the hum drum of private life.
His repntnt-'on as an eccentric, erratic
politician is national. No man can
better entertain a public assemblage for
an hour or two than Emerson Etheridge.
He is almost as voluble as George Fran
cis Train, with far better education and
powers of debate. The public was not
surprised, then, to see the announcement
that he would sjieak at the Greenlaw Op
era House and to hear him confess in his
own gushing style, that be had consent
ed to allow some gentleman to rote for
him for .a certain office. The office is
supposed to be that of State Senator
from the Twenty-third Senatorial Dis
trict. Mr. Etheridge was in the Senate
during the session of '70-"Il, and made
some violent speeches "in favor of a 20
cents ad valorem tax. This is'not a new
idea with him, as he advocated it long
before the present funding law had ever
been heard ef. Ha entertained bis crowd
in a masterly style last night. The Rad
ical leaders were notably present and
conspicuous, and applauded his hits at
the Democracy. It was ungracious in
him to be so severe on the eighteen Re
publicans who voted for the bill in the
House and the four Senators who sus
tained it in the upper House. He as
sumed that what he calls the dark-lantern
movement originated last spring because
some gentlemen signed a paper favoring
low taxation a very long Btretch of his
imagination indeed. The distinguished
gentleman who seemed to preside at the
meeting last procured those names at a
time when he was very bitter against the
Bartlett movement for not opening the
issues of the legislative campaign in
which feeling he had the sympathy as
well as counsel of Mr. Etheridge.
We will notice only one pjint be made
now, as we agree with him in some
others. He boldly and recklessly as
serted that only one paper in the State,
(the Avalanche), does not sustain and
maintain the Funding Ring. "Why is
this?" he inquired, in his peculiar dra
matic style, and continued:
The reason is obvious. These funders
have fl,M)0,000 every year of your
money.' Well, suppose they pay out
$500,000 to control the newspapers and
legislators, they still have (1,000,000 left.
The newspapers of the State, with one
or two exceptions, have gone one way.
The money is all one way. That's what's
This fling was as uncalled for as un
just. We will simply say that the files
of the Ledger will show that it was the
first paper in the State that fully exposed
the funding scheme, and that we kept
up the opposition as long as it was
effectual. We have never changed our
views upon that question, and will not
in the light of the facts before us. The
. people in this end of the State are
nearly all one way on this question, and j
were before they bad the good fortune to !
Kirn the views of Mr. Etheridge. A.
to the sweeping charge of corruption
against the press of ftiis State, we resent
it with contempt as the bitter esulition of
one wW. ambition In life has never

From the Avalanche.!
CouLitaviLLS, Icxa., October 21, 1ST.
At the conclusion of the discussion
yesterday between Messrs. Young and
Lewis, candidate for Congress, Poytoo
Smith and Harvey Mathes, candidates
nn th Dpmocratic-Conservative ticket
fnr Legislative honors, made brief
speeches. , . .
Mr. Smith defined his position as to
maturs of State politics in a clear and
emphatic manner. He denounced the
funding law as a corrupt and ruinous
piece of legislation, and was particu
larly bitter on that section of it which
guarantees the payment of interest on
the bonds provided for in tbe act, out of
tbe public revenues, first of all, whether
anything is left to pay current expenses
r not. - The independent candidates he
handled, to use a common expression,
without gloves. His remarks as to them
will not be forgotten soon by the inde
pendent eaadidateg who were on the,
J. Harvev Mathes SDoke only a few
minutes, the time for departure on the
train being close at hand. The fact that
hia baggage was in the hotel and the
train jhistlinu in sieht of town was
enough to disconcert him, but he would
have his say, which, I assure you, was
elegantly and forcibly done. . If elected
to the Legislature he would go there
with his mind and heart fixed on meas
ures of reform and retrenchment where-
ever it should be found necessary, .lie
was sorrv that he had not time to speak
of the particulars in which he thought
reform was needed, but pledged himself
to exercise his best judgment on these
things, and be governed by what ne
deemed right and justice to the people.
After this he made tracks for the depot,
and just made the trip in time to be off
for home. v

Warned toDlaeuntmnti Batmen.
New York, October 22. The Graut
Locomotive Works, of Paterson. N. J
are understood to be in some trouble. A
contract for fifty locomotives for the
Russian government, had conditions at
tached to the time of delivery, which
the Grant Company found impossible to
comply with, and work thereon has in
the meantime been suspended. The
company show a large surplus over lia
bilities, but in a very unavailable shape,
and the future of its affairs is dependent
altogether upon tbe disposition of tbe
Russian government to be lenient as to
the interpretation of the contract. Tbe
creditors of the company will probably
be asked in the meantime for an exten
sion of time, until communication can
be had with the Russian government. It
is said that the company discharged a
large number of men and will probably
close their shops altogether for the pres
ent. The Secxetary of State of New Jersey

An Icelandic Woman In Full BrMt.
A oorresrjondent of the London Stan
dard, who has been assisting at the lute
festivities in Iceland, saw several ladies
dressed in the old Icelandic full dress.
One' of the ladies and ber costume he
describes aa follows: She was som
forty years of age, tall and stately, and
would have commanded attention in any
assembly. The bright complexion and
abandance of fair hair, as well as the
general tone of her features, proclaimed
her true Norse blood, iter dress, how
ever, was what most caught my atten
tion. She wore a close-fitting bodice
and sleeves, made of black woolen ma
terial, with broad gold embroidery down
tbe front and on tne seams, fas
tened at the throat by a gold but
ton, open after this about half
wav to the waist so as to show a white
chemisette, but with gold buttons on
either side, so that it could be closed at
will. Such a oodice as this is often
laced np in front by a gold or silver
chain, passed through a kind of ring on
the edge of tbe buttons; but this lady
wore it onen. Round the w&ist was a
belt formed ot plates of gold linked to
gather and nari'nedown in front nearly
to the kni3. Many of these belts in
gold or silver are bcir looms, and come
down from generation togeneration per
haps relics of the time when people car
ried their wealth about with them, as
Hindoo women and shas of Persia do
now a days. Tbe skirt was of the same
material as the bodice, and was perfecly
plain, except for a narrow band of gold
embroidered round the bottom, which
was some two inches from the ground.
No flounces or frills, and, above all, no
abominations in the way of crinoline or
dress improver disfigured the graceful
costumes I am trying to describe.- I
know I do 'it very badly, and I dare say
ladies will think I am a dunce, but the
task is new and somewhat uncongeoial.
But the head-dress was the most peculiar
part of tbe whole. I can only describe
it as a flattened cornucopia turning over
from tbe back toward the frout. The
cap was high, covered with. white silk or
linen, strained over a frame of cardboard
and built up with wadding. This con
struction I afterward inquired. in,to. so it
may be accepted as correct. Round
the band of it glittered about a dozen
of gold stars, and set in all round with
a very deep net fall trimmed with
lace. This fall was lifted op in front
and turned back of the cap
while the back part oi it fell almost tc
tbe waist, tbe whole giving much tbe ef
fect of a bridal veil. The hair was worn
in several long and very broad plaits,
which were turned un is loops, and their
ends hidden under the cap. This is the
usual Icelandic sty le of wearing the hair,
and, of course, dispenses with all the
adornment of frizzes 6d1 false plaits,
which the belles of our more Southern
climes find indispensable. Clumsiness
in my description may, perhaps, impart
an idea of clumsiness to this head dress,
but it is by no means clumsy. On the
centrsry, it is very becoming, and dis
played above bright and pretty faces, as
I afterward saw it, adds a charm to what
hardly requires improvement the fea
tures of the better cja.8? ?' Icelandic
Books and Dinners.
From the Hartford Courant.
There is still a popular belief that it is
less extravagant to spend 1U tor a din
ner than for a book. A festive person
out on a holiday will spend twenty-five
cents for a quart of peanuts, which be
did not need and which he eats np in an
hoqr or two (to his inward damage) who
would never think ot buying lor the
same money some cheap edition of a
standard book which would furnish him
solid enjoyment for many days, and add
materially to tbe value of bis life. Such
a reluctance is there to buy books that
a whole neighborhood, eager, perhaps,
to read a new work by a popular author
(hunger for it), will wait for months to
borrow it, rather than spend halt a dol
lar to own it, and satisfy tbe intellectual
appetite at pnee. Every day, in the
ciiv. people spend 7j and f 10 for elabo
rate lunches -which they do not need,
when the money would buy some fine
edition of a work that would enter'ain
them for a month or two, and enrich
their minds forever. They are prodigal
about eating and drinking, spending
liberally for dyspepsia, but trust to
chance and borrowing for what the mind
wants. The sample-room is more attrac
live to them than the news room, and

was crowded with visitors, and this
morning a larger number than any pre-

iuuo uay were in me ouuuing. Manv
ot tne visitors are those who have at
tended before, but the new attractions
added from day to day prevent a same
ness which, outside of the aew faces to
be seen, would be the case but for the
good management in producing some
thing new. The promenade concerts
are a great feature and conduce greatly
to the sights and curiosities. The several
departments are well kept up and exhibi
tors are buoyantjf atXthe appreciation
shown by our citizens in attending often
and in large numbers.
In walking through the main hall we
join the crowd of visitors who inspect
beautiful display of clothing and gents'
furnishing goods. This show window is
certainly one of the handsomest in the
building. We can assure you that if you
visit the Exposition solely for the pur
pose of seeing " good clothes," you will
find them at Barnaby's show window,
which is upstairs on the left hand corri
dor, near the center of the buildisg.

The grand display of furniture, car
pets and curtain goods of

has attracted a large crowd since the
opening of tbe Exposition. This firm

Memphis, if r.bt in the South, in carpets

is such that her many friends are well
pleased at seeing this beautiful display,
