MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE: TUESDAY EVENING. NOVEMBER 22 1881.
After the first of January next
the Ledger will cease to exchange
wun all papers known as patent out
sides or insides. Oar exchango list is
unwieldy and must be cut down, and
we can better afford to dispense with
papers only half printed at homo than
those that encourage labor and are
entirely printed and edited at home.
Tub Guild Gazette, the organ of
the Southwestern Benefit Guild,
makes its appearanco to day. It is a
neatly printed little paper of six col
umns to tho page. I'ivo thousand
copies are printed, to be sent out gra
tuitously to agents, members and the
publio at large. If will be issued
monthly at the nominal price of fifty
cents per annum.
Bv a corrcspoo'lpneo prinUd else
where, it will be scon that the citizens
of LaGrango have invited Judge
oneed to address thcra upon the nolit
ical issues of the day in Tennessee,
ana tnat he will comply next Satur
day. The peoplo will be glad to hear
from Judgo Sneed. Ho has
long been in publio life and
yet has never been a politician,
Fight years upon the Supremo bench,
ho was practically isolated from poll
tics. He is a conservative man of
sound high views.and is a safe advisor.
Ho is known to be a State Credit man
of the strictest sect, and opposed to
repudiation in all iu forms,
lie regards, if wo understand
his position, tho 10O-3 bill
with tho coupon feature, however.
as a calamity and especially hostile to
tho growth of a healthy publio opinion
upon debt molality. His argument in
fa7or f tho 50-4 in 187!) is remem
bered ly the peoplo'of Tennessee and
especially for the high standard of
houor it inculcated. He believes tbat
compromise is no crioio and that a
State, liko an individual, has a right
to mako the best terms it can with its
creditors, pro-idod it is done by hon
orable negotiation. Ilia views wi!l be
read with interest all over tho Stuto-
It is to such men that look fjr sound
advice at a time like this.
We have decided to reject all orig
inal poetry from tbee columns on and
after tho first of January next. Our
cotemporaries can have a monopoly in
that line. This is due notice to verse
writers who may have a stock
under way, and also to cur
readors. Much of tho fo-cal'cd
poetry that appears in daily news
papers does not deserve tho name.
EditoM often, in a spirit of good na
ture or fympatby with a eontrilutor,
insert rhymes that are no credit to
their literary taste. Sometimes we
publish a very fair picco of verse, but
it U not always poetry, and very little
of it will live in the future libraries of
song. Mrs. Jjilliaa Kozelld Messenger
has written much that may bo called
nal poetry and to live, though of late
years since she rc-noved to Washing
ton we have not heard much from
her. It is astonishing how many poo
plo try to write poetry. It is even
said that there is hardly any man of
any education who has not at some
time in his life invoked the muses
and wrought out a few verses some
abandon the idea very scnsiblv and
tear up what they havo written.
Others rush to the newspapers with
it, and perchance it is printed. Now
and then a very creditablo piece ap
pears. Thoso who are the greatest
failuros are the more persistent in
advertising the fact to the world. To
save our readers considerable inflic
tion and ourselves a world of bother,
wo have concluded after much medi
tation and many long conferences be
tween tho editorial room and the
counting-room, to rule out all alleged
original poetry, good, bad and indif
ferent; ordinary, good ordinary, mid
dling, good middling and fair, from
the dato above named. We break
tho news gently as possible.
A LOT of colored people loft Phil

year, for tho happy land of Liberia.
hen they got to New York they
were swindled out of what money they
had or spent it in a foolish, extrava
gant way. Then they appealed to a
sympathizing publio for help; they
told a fearful lot of lies about
having bocn driven from their happy
homes by brutal whito men, who
wanted their crops, teams and other
property. The Northern papers gen
erally aoccptcd these statements for the
truth, as they always do when anything
injurious to Southern white people
is told. The Herald and
other Now York papers in
terviewed these miscrablo wretches
and published column after column of
their alleged terrible treatment, After
a delay of many weeks money was
raised to send tho martyrs on to Li
beria. They had a hard time of it
on board tho ehip, and found the
happy land very different from the
representations. Tho painful fact
was realized very foon that they
were among unj'mpuhiz'mg strangers
aud that they would havo to work for
a living the same in Phillips county
as anywhero else. And now they are
Writing back to some of the bad white
men of that county for money to bring
them back to Helena, They desire to
see their old homes and the class of
people Iheyliedon at New York. They
mako tho most earnest appeals for
, aid, and promise that they will never,
never do so any more. Why do they
not write to their friends in New
York or Kansas? Perhaps Parson
Conway could find them nice homes
in some of the U ostcrn States. If
they will wait until the approach of
the next close election they would be
wanted in Indiana. But, no, it eeems
that they prefer to call on their old
white neighbors and former masters,
They know who to go to in time of
real distress. When they do return
it is to be hoped the New York papers
will take half the trouble to interview
them and report their statements as
before.
WALL STREET.
A Feverish Market and Con
fidence Shaken.
Boston Banjcs Drawing Heavily
on New York.
Difficulty in Negotiating
Loans.
Trunk Line DltTerencea Referred
to Arbitrators.
New York, Novomber 22. The
Wall street market opened feverish,
and there is no denying for the mo
ment confidence is considerably
shaken. Boston advices are reassur
ing, although tho banks are taking the
precaution ofstrengthening themselves
by drawing funds from Now York.
One bank sent 1 100,000 yesterday, and
leading bank President estimates
that Boston will draw about $1,000,000
tor protection. Indications favor a
stringent market, and time loans are
more difficult to negotiate. Tho bulls,
however, comfort themselves with the
belief that the government will oome
to the roseuo with a largo purchaso of
bonds. An inside party says the trunk
lino difference was referred to arbitra
tors, and that a conference of the man
agers is to be held to-day. Partita
who have been ttudyipg tho purchases
ofLakeShoro claim to havo satiefac
tory proof that muoh of the buying
has been for tie Vanderbilt account.
The market was steadied yesterday by
heavy orders for Western Union, and
an unusual number of loans called in
here and in Boston.

The Van Iionbly Guarded.
Washington, November 22. The
prison van in which Guitcau was con
veyed to court this morniDg was es
oortod by six mounted policemen, in
addition to ten officers who rodo up.
The trip was made without incident
and after reaching the prisoner's room
Guiteau partook hearty of breakfast,
and expressed himself satisfied with
the police arrangements which made
ensure safety. He thought some pre
cautions should have been observed
at the outset. The court room was
crowded in every nook and corner.
John Guiteau was in the court room
soon after 9 o'clock and obtained
subpoenas for six additional witnesses.
None of the gentlemen publicly in
vited by Guiteau to assist in the de
fense have yet responded. It is un
derstood however, that Scoville ex
pects to secure the service of
Trudo, of Chicago, later in the
week several experts were summoned
bthe defense, who are in attendance
this morning, among them Dr. Rice, of
Wisconsin, who has long known the
prisoner, and who, it is said, advised
bis commitment to thp insane asylum
four years ago on tho ground of emo
tional insanity.
Guiteau was brought into the court
room shortly after ten o'clock, and
Scoville resumed his argument. He
called the attention of the jury to the
plea set up by the defenso of insanity.
and discussed at great length the
growth and chargo of publio opinion
upon the subject of insanity and its
treatment by tho courts when set up
as a dclense in criminal cases. He
cited numbers of cases and rulings in
several noted ones. Ho claimed that
tho plea of insanity having been set
up by the defense, the burden of the
proof rests with the prosecution.
At ono point in the argument Sco
ville in detailing the more enlightened
treatment of the insane now in vogue
at asylums said: "In nthpr vnrAa
those in charge of asylums act with a
ittlemorc reason than do theinmates."
This sally seemed .to amuse Guiteau
immensely and a broad smilo broke
Orer his features which reappeared
two or thrco times as if his mind re
curred to it. Scoville alluded to the
prejudice which undoubtedly existed
against the plea of insanity generally,
and especially in the case of the pris
oner. He said that newsna-
pers had intimated that Guiteau
was ouly feienins? insanity ami
such seemed to be tho general
theory of the publio. Guitcau turned
uneasily in his chair, and with quick,
nervous articulation said: "I never
feign. I act myself sane or insane."
Without noticing tho interruption,
Scoville alluded to the arrest of a man
at the time of President Hayes inau
guration, who was sent to an insane
asylum. "This man," Le said, "had
as carefully made all his arrangements
to kill Prosidcnt Hayes as did Guiteau
to kill President Garfield, and but for
his arrest might have succeeded."
KULROAD COMMITTEE.
t'oiiNlUfringa PropoNlllou to Pay
800.000 Taxeai to the C. O.
and Accept frlOO.000 Stock In
Lieu of 100,000 in the M. It. It.
The committee appointed at the last
term of the County Quarterly Court
to agree upon Jsome proposition with
the new Chesapeake k Ohio railroad,
were in sessioh at the Courthouse this
morning, with closed doors. Among
those present wcro Messrs. Tom Hale
man, J. T. Petit, J. T. Fargerson,
Col. Josiah Patterson and County At
torney J. A. Taylor.
The case stands in this shape. Tho
county owned $100,000 of stock in the
Mississippi River railroad, which road
has changed hands three times. The
present owners are the Chesapeake &
Ohio Ilailroad, which offers to is
sue to the county ono hundred thou
sand dollars in stock of the new com
pany in lieu of the stock in tho old
Mississippi River railroad owned by
the county, provided the county will
pay to the C. k 0. $00,000 taxes due
the Mississippi River railroad.
The antics and funnyisms of the
humorist assassin Guiteau has been a
theme of general disoussion for1 the
past two days. There is a method in
tho man's pretended madness. He
was converted to Stalwartisin when
President Garfield and Secretary
Blaine declined to bo further annoyed
with his office hunting impudence.
He was shrewd enough to say to the
eourt that his defenso would be insan
ity, doubtless bolicving this plan the
best to serve bis turn. Tbe dcspioable
fellow appears to hugely enjoy tho pe
culiar features of his trial.
General Cheatham's Vindica
tion. Nashville World, 21.1
General Cheatham's vindication will

newspapers next Sunday. This pro
duction will be looked forward to with
a great degree of interest by the
public. We understand that the
Philadelphia Times has offered
General Cheatham 6ne thousand dol
lars for tho right of being the first to
publish it. No doubt the soldiers who
rallied to tho standard of General
Cheatham will hail with )oy this pub
lio vindication of their chieftain.

Water Receding.
Strinofield, III., November 22.
The Sangamon river flood has
reached its height, and the water is
beginning to recede. It is usually 200
feet broad and inside high banks; but
now it spreads over the rich and fer
tile bottom lands, and in some parts is
two miles wido. At Itiverton, seven
miles cast of Springfield, there
is a terrible scene of devastation.
Field after field of corn lies covered
with water, whilo an occasional
island protrudes above the deso
late waste, eovercd with stalks
of corn. Tho shocks of corn were
carried bodily down the swiftly flowing
stream. In some places wagon roads,
are covered with four feet of water.
Tho cattle pens of Riverlon and
tho alcohol works are partially des
troyed. Two hundred cattle and 1300
hogs have bocn turned into the lots.
John Black's paper mill has sus
pended and is threatened with over
flow. The Wabash railroad bridge is
well protected by strong iron piers.
Ldward Agco loses 2000 bushels of
corn, and many others lose smaller
amounts, whilo many farmers report
the loss of cattle, fences, etc. The
Stato Department of Agriculture esti
mates the loss to the corn crop at a
quarter ot a million dollars.
