AN APPEAL TO REASON.
It Is a remarkable fact that the weak?
est members of society frequently defy
the law and seek to bring It into oon
lempt This Is strange, Indeed, when It
(s remembered that the weak are more
dependent than the strong upon the law
for the protection and pr?servation of
their natural rights.
"We hold these truths to be self-evl
Bent," says our Declaration of Indepen
lence, "that all men are created equal)
that they aro endowed by their Creator
?vlth certain iwajlenablo rights; that
imong these are life, liberty and the
pursuit of happiness; that to secure these
fights governments are Instituted among
Or, as Mr. Blackstone puts It, "The
?Ight of personal, socurlty consists In a
lerson's legal and uninterrupted enjoy
-nent of his life, his limbs, his health
mei his reputation." ,
But it IS one thing to have an "un?
illenable right" and another thing to be
protected In that rl?ht. There Is no abso?
ute liberty In civilized society, much as
we boast of our American freedom.
There is no absolute liberty except among
savages, where each man Is a law unto
himself; whero each takes who has the
power, and each holds who can. In or?
ganized government, however, each man
surrenders something ot his natural lib?
erty In order that ho may be the beter
"The absolute rights of man," quoting
?jgaln from Mr. Blacketone, "con
??Iderfed as a freo agfcnt, en?
dowed with the discernment to
know good from evil, and with power
of choosing those mensures which ap?
pear to him to bo most desirable, are
usually summed up in ono general ap?
pellation, and denominated the natural
liberty of mankind. This natural liberty
consists properly in a power of acting
as ono thinks fit, without nny restraint
Decontrol, unless by tho law of. nature;
being a rl*ht Inherent in us by birth,
nnd one of the gifts of God to man at his
creation, when ho endued him with the
faculty of freo will. But every man,
when ho onters Into society, glve.s up
a part of his natural liberty, as tho price
of so valuable a purchase, and, In con?
sideration of receiving tho advantages
of mutual commerco, obliges himself to
conform to thoso lawp, which the com?
munity has thought proper to establish.
And this spocles of legal obedience and
conformity la Infinitely more desirable
than that wild and eavago liberty which
is aaorifloed to obtain It, For no man
that tionatdora a moment would wish to
retain the absolute and uncontrolled
power ot doing whatever ho pleases; tho
consequence of which is that every other
man would also have the same power,
and then thero would bo no security to
lndlsdduala in any of the enjoyments of
life. Political, therefore, or civil liberty,
which la that of u member of society,
is no other than natural liberty so far re
btruined by human laws (and no farther)
as ?b necessary and expedient for the
general advantage of tho publie."
Let us suppone that there were? no
such thing as government and laws in
the Stato of Virginia, or in the city of
Richmond. Let ns suppose that there
were no restraints whatever upon the
ectloiiH of men; that each man was the
custodian of his own Ufo, of his own
liberty, of ills own property. In short,
that there was no rule but the rule of
brute force. ? In such a Bitnation the
strong and rich man would make for him?
self a castle and fortify It, and probably
hire or capture servants, and put them
an tho Inside, and arm them to the teeth
and defy his neighbors. In short, he
would do the best that he could to protect
himself, hla family and his belongings,
and. If ha chose, he might, upon occasion,
Co out and molta ru Ida upon his weaker
neighbors Jind 'UOio their possessions
and take them and their wives and their
ohileiren Into his own service.
It Is already Implied what, In such a
state of lavvlet: i.i-.h, iho fate of the poor
man and the weak man .we.nld be, Un
would be absolutely at the mercy of the
strong and the rich.
Kothing? pr?venla such a condition ex?
cept the government under which we
live. ' Hy common consent this govern?
ment ban been established, and It la the
b'.it.hicfcB of government to eoe t,hat the
natural righi? and Die civil rights, as
?rdalne<i by law, of every? citizen, hoiv
-?*? ooor ana weak he muy bo, ?irti pro?
teoted ?gainst trespass. If the govern?
ment does Its duty; If the laws are prop?
erly executed, the poor nnd weak man
is just ns safe In the enjoyment of his
rights as the rich and strong man.
How necessary It Is, therefore, for the
poor and weak especially to stand up
for the law under all circumstances, to
respect and uphold, nnd defend It. All
sensible mon are willing to submit to
the law so long as tho law gives them
protection; but If the law does not give
them protection?If under the law thoy
ere not safo In their porsonn.1 and prop?
erty rights?there Is but one thing for
them to do, unless thoy make nn abject
surrender, nnd that Is' to protect them?
selves. When the law falls to give the
proteoflon which It guarantees to give,
governmont will Inevitably go down, and
men will tnke mattors into tholr own
hands.' Then the strongest will survive
and have dominion. The law has no In-?
herent force; It Is the crea turo of pifhllo
sentiment, nnft It must he maintained by
Publio sentiment, or It will fall.
It Is for these reasons that this paper
has no persistently urged tha observance
of law under every provocation nnd In nil
circumstances. There can be no middle
ground between tho law nnd tho mob.
Either the ono or tho other must rule.
RITCHIE AS AN ORATOR.
The Petersburg Indnx-Appeal disagrees
with Dr. Thraves1 In his blogrnphy ot Fa?
ther Rltchlo, in so far that be states that
the distinguished editor was "a clear nnd
earnest and at times eloquent speaker,"
Tho Index-Appeal is Informed by porno
of those who havo heard Mr. Ritchie
speak that he was "tedious, didactic and
uninteresting, and had none of the graces
of the orator." It adds that his speoches
were prepared with core, but that ho did
not read them well, and It refers to a
"notable failure" Ritchie made In Peters?
burg on ono occasion.
Our contemporary and the biographer
both may borlght In tho main In regard
to the oratory of Mr. Ritchie, es tho samo
speaker Is often vory unequal. Certainly,
Father Ritchie's roputation ?Joes not rest
upon his ability ne a public speaker, but
wo aro Informed by a gentloman of this
city, a scholar of high standing, that Mr.
Ritchie was "ready, versatile and fiuont,
and when In earnest, as ho generally was,
could not fall In being Impressive." It Is
hardly possible that Ritchie wrote out
his speeches. He may have done so for
that occasion In Petersburg and failed In
the delivery for tho reason given by the
A distinguished Whig orator once com?
menced an address In tho old African
Church In qulsl off-hand style, made a
dead failure, and before he could rosume
ho had to keep his audlonco waiting until
his manuscript was brought to him from
tho Whig office. If our recollection errs
not, this gentleman was the distinguished
statesman and orator, William C. Rives.
His manuscript ho had lent to the editor
ot tho Whig,, so that a proper synopsis
ot his speech might be made for publica?
tion upon the morning after delivery.
As to Mr. Rltchlo, we are informed that
he devoloped into a speaker quite late In
Ufe, and that he rapidly improved. That
r?o spoko well,' at times eloquently, our
Informnnt assures us Is an undoubted
fact. However, different men have differ?
ent opinions as to what oratory Is. It is
not a thing that can bo measurod or
gauged by rulo.
The views cont
clo wero those of tho hlographer, not of
this paper. Mr. Ritchie's fame as a writer
so far outshone his roputation as a speak?
er we have rarely heard the latter men?
tioned at nil. We have never Usted him
ae an orator.
The tobacco factories of that day were
not what they are now, but the "weed"
was always too valuable to be slighted.
Ono of the large rooms In which It used to
bo "sweated" furnished the Democrats a
good place of meeting, and Mr. Rltchlo
often was In attendance.
In a sermon delivered In Baltimore
on Sunday last on "Christianity and
Civilization," the Rov. Madison C. Peters
nald that Maryland won not as many peo?
ple seemed to think the?pioneer In religious
liberty, but was, In faot, among the
last of the States to grant full religious
liberty nnd equal rights before the law.
"Its religious freedom," he went on,
"was limited to those within the pro?
vince who believed in Jesus Christ and
was accompanied by a proviso which de?
clared that any person who donled tho
Trinity should be punished with death.
Maryland wns, therefore, no place for a
Jow or anyone not a believer In Chris?
tianity. Even , after the Revolution,
though under thn Constitution of tho
United States a Jew was ellgiblo to any
oflice, no ono could hold any oflice under
tho government of Maryland without
ulgnlng a declaration that ho believed In
the Christian religion. In 1801, nnd again
in 1801, earnest offorts wore mado In the
Maryland Legislature to repeal this In?
tolerant provision, but fulled to paee
upon each occasion, moro than two-thirds
of tho members voting against Its re?
peal. In 1818, after a three days' debate,
the bill favoring the removal of these dis?
abilities wns again defeated by a vote
of 21 to SO. On February 26, 1825, the bill
according to tho Jew his full civil rights
was passed by both housos of tho leg?
islature. It was ratified at the succeed?
ing session and became a law."
In view of these facts It Is not sur?
prising that Thomas Jefferson, the great?
est Democrat of his day and generation,
and tho truo expounder of D?mocratie
principles, should have regarded as tho
proudest act of his life his authorship
of "tho stutulo for Virginia of religious
That law is to-day the pride of every
true Democrat, yet strangely enough, If
we may Judge from utterances every now
and then from the hustings and In the
public print, there are men In Virginia
to-dny who do not believe In It, except so
far as It applies to thempelves, and would
return to the old regime of religious In?
tolerance for others. But tho great body
politic of Virginia do bollove In It, and
will not consent to any regulation In our
public school system or otherwise which
trespasses upon Ihe right of every man
to worship God In his own way, and
according to his own conscience.
A SLAVE'S DEATH.
A man In New York recently com'
mltted suicide, Leaving a note In which
ho told In a pathetic- manner that the
drink habit possessed, hitn and he could
not "throw off tho shapkles."
"We talk a great deal about liberty and
freedom and free agency and nil that,
but no man Is free who doea not govern
himself. "Whoso commlttoth ein Is th?
sorvant of pin.'1 Tlio man who allows his
passions or his nppelltcs to dominate him
Is bound hand and foot, and this poor
follow In New York used the right term
when ho said that ho was the slavo to
the drink habit, and was bound ?with
ehacliloa which ho could not throw off.
It Is a remarkable thing that men will
deliberately onsla/ve themselves In this
way. But fow men do this deliberately.
This sort of slavery does not come In a
moment; It Is the work of years. It Is
not the first drink, nor the second, nor
the third, which enslaves a man; It Is
tho habit acquired, and the man who ac?
quires the habit Is almost suro by and
by to put hlmsolf In shackles.

"Already I have ceasod, to fear HI"
whispered Emily, though trembling like
Yet a deeper color was in her oheeks,
a warmer light In the glistening eyes
upraised to his, as If the strong arms
In which she had found unexpected
refuge had already Insplrod a soneo of
security beyondi tho reach of mortal
"But for your sake at least I have
not," said Walton, hurriedly. 'Our situ?
ation Is extremely hasardous. The 'leset
sign, a word, a look, a breath, may
serve to awaken Redlaw's suspicion
?nnd that means death, or worse than
death. I hardly dared disclose to you
my determination to protect you, lest
some self-betrayal on your part should
expo'so the truth. Only that your, dis?
tress seemed too torrlhle, I would have
kept my purpose to mysolf."
She understood his apprehonstons nnd
eagerly twining her hands round his
arm bIio cried softly!
"You nro so good, so brave! O, Mr.
Walton, trust mol Neither by worel nor

lief. I will bo as If thle interview never

"I will! I will!"

"Dear friend! Dear, d?ar friend!"
"Just one thing more. When alone
here, I wish you to look for paper and
Ink, or pencil, and let?"
"I have thorn already!" cried Emily,
eagerly. "My pocket notebook and pen?
"Good! Splendid!" whispered Walton,
drawing her olosor for n. moment, and
convinca that he ha? not erred In his
confidence. "Let me have them for a
time. I want four or five blank pages.
There ore as many empty bottles In my
stateroom, and I will cast In each a
message Into the sea."
"What messago, please?" r
"A statement of our position and peril,
and that we are bound forche Ladrone
Islands. If one of the bottles should be
picked up by an armed vessai, It might
result In our ultimate rescue."
"God grant HI God grant ltl" cried
Emily, hurriedly produedng the articles

Trembling, with heart wildly beating,
sho clung to him for a moment, her
eyes raised to his with a longing openly
revealed, yet in which he could not or
dared not believe. /
"Toll me one thing \more!" she pleaded
In tremulous whispers, while the color
mantled deeper her lovely cheeks. "Tell
me, that I may remember that also at
all times and In my ?very prayer!"
"Tell you what?"
"Your?your given name!" she mur?
mured, breathlessly., "Mine Is Emily!"
Walton caught his breath. His hero
Ism did not appeal to him as It was ap?
pealing to her, and was revealed In her
quivering, lips, her tendor eyes, her
eager caresses of grateful affection. But
her beauty, tho touch of her hand, tho
throb of her heart near his. gave life to
a love and birth to hopes tho like of
which he had never known. It was not
tho first time that two have met and
lovod in a day. With a laugh half ner?
vous, half Joyous, he held her closer and
"My name Is Archie,"
"Archie! Archie I"
She dwelt upon the word with linger?

She understood him, and with eyes and
cheeks aglow held him fast.
"Promise me this, then! One thing

be death at your dear, brave hand before
dishonor at his?" .
"Do you mean It?"
"I do mean It! Archie, promise!"
He bent down till his breath was warm

It was an Impulsive avowal, Impelled
In part by his emotions of the moment
and more by memories the very naturo
of which had caused the saddened lioart
to madly yearn for the, Jove and tender?

words, low spoken, fell hoarse and with
passionate fondness from his tromulous
Thrilled through and through by their
manly fervor, with her very being moved
by sentiments she never yet had known,
with a mingling of responsive, emotions
that fairly confused her, Emily Somers
yielded with glowing cheeks nnd love
Hlled eyes to the arms enfolding her, as
if already she had found In them a heaven
from which she fain would know no part?
Then he broke from her, as from one
from whom separation were alrondy at)
effort and a pain; and, with a last fond
look, given loving answer In her longing
gaze, he strode from the cubiti and has?
tened on deck.
Redlaw was Just oomlng aft, and
mounting the break of tha poop, the
steward at his heels.
"Get below, you our, and clean up thc

smile of fraternal sentiment, satisfied

Hon. Harry St. George Tucker.
Editor of The Tlmes-Dlspatch:
Sir,?Will you allow one Interested In
our great University to suggest yet an?
other name In addition to those honored
ones alroaxly mentioned, The name I
wish to suggest, without consent or even
knowledgo of its owner, Is that of Mr.
Harry St. Georgo Tucker, of Lexington,
Va., dean-elect of the Columbian Uni?
versity Law School. Few men have
qualifications so able to disarm all crit?
icism as has Mr. Tucker and few are aa
peculiarly equipped for this exacting po?
sition as Is ho, Thoroughly educated In
academic courses and In law, he began
tho succe.?ful practice of law In Staun?
ton, whence ho was soon called to Con?
gress, where he served eight "years with
great distinction. He declined after his
fourth term In Congress to stand for re?
election and accepted the chair of equity
In tho law school of Washington and
Lee University, of which school he was
soon elected dean.
Mr. Tucker resigned from thl3 position
to take up tho work In Virginia of the
Southern Education Board. This work
In which he hus been engaged for the
past two years has made him thoroughly
acquainted with the workings and the
needs of tho public-school syBtem of Vlr?
glnla from the primary department
, through the high school to the University,
There Is no part of tho publlc-echool sys.
tern outlined by Mr, Jofferson and de?
veloped by lator educators on wh'ch Mr,
Tucker cannot speak with tho force of
authority. What better han then can
be found than ho? A ripe scholar, a
practical man of affairs, a speaker on
tho platform with no superior in Vir?
ginia, and ono of our country's great ex
pounders of the Constitution. The Uni?
versity, nor tho State, nor the people of
the South, need over have cause to be
ashamed of him as the University's head,
for In any assembly, as on John ,Mar
shall'a day a few years aso In Ro^f-n.
When ho delivered his memorablo addreia
on Marshall, ho would appear as aipol
Ished scholar, original thinker, and mas?
ter of oratory. ?
