Hon. H. R. Revkls, Ex-United

corruption, theft, and embezzlement. These

THI? DEAD (STATESMAN.
In tho death of Henry Wilson,
Vice-President of tho United States,
the Nation has lost one ot its brightest
jewels. As a man, ho was honest,
true to principle, earnest in the advo
cacy of what he believed to be right,
zealous in (loins; good, upright in all
his transactions, and faithful to every
trust. In a long and useful public
life, he has never been guilty of per
sonal dishonesty or corruption of any
character. Honesty was the pre
dominant trait in his character. He
was a statesman of broad and liberal
views, just to all, zealously pursuing
the ri"ht ns he saw the right.
Henry Wilson was tho very highest
typo of a self-made man. P.oru in
poverty, surrounded by circumstances
the most adverse, unaided by wealthy
or influential friends, he worked his
way up, by his own unconquerable
will and unyielding purposes, and by
his indomitable energy to the next
highest office in tho country. He
not only held the highest offices within
the gift of a grateful and appreciative
people, but he filled them faithfully,
elUcicntly and with distinction.
Coming ns he did lrom the lower
walks of life, he knew how to sympa
thize with the toiling thousands. He
was a true friend of tho workingman,
and showed his friendship by mani
festing a profound interest in every
thing pertaining to his welfare. All
that lie did in this behalf bore the
impress of honesty, and was free from
that miserable demagogism which
characterizes so many who make
loud professions of sympathy for
the masses of laboring men. He was
the friend of tho oppressed wherever
found. It was this that led him to
oppose African slavery, and to fight
that institution with all his power un
til it was abolished. His great ability,
his zeal and earnestness, his upright
ness and purity of character all com
bined gave him great influence,
and naturally constituted him a
leader in whatever cause he espoused.
5Ir. Wilson, though very zealous in
the advocacy of his views, and al
ways progressive and up with the
times in which he lived, was not a
fanatic. His was a well balanced
mind, and he succeeded through pru
dence, caution and industry, rather
than bv enthusiasm, bluster and
noise. He was always cool and de
liberate in whatever he undertook,
never went into anything wjtuout a
purpose in view, and never had u
purpose that was not creditable in the
highest degree. He was always relia
ble, always safe and always success.

except while Vice President, ho never
made money except by his legitimate
salary, and never was suspected of
He tva3 a model which young men,
especially those struggling with pov
erty, may well emulate. He was a
living example of what a man may
accomplish by the exercise of tho
virtues of honesty, industry, economy,
prudence, and perseverance. The
humble farmer boy, the obscure shoe
maker, goes to his grave mourned by
a bereaved Nation that has lost one
of its purest patriots and greatest
statesmen. As long as liberty and
freedom sr nored and desired, and
as long as cirtue is respected, the
name of Henry Wilson will bo ro-
merebered. Peace to his ashes !
The President is close closeted, figuring
on bis milage to show stupid tax-payers
how easy it is to pay aaon-interet-beariog
with an interest-bearing liability.
The foregoing paragraph we copy
from one of our State exchanges, of
the Democratic persuasion. As it is
from a paper never guilt)' of perpe
trating anything original, we tukc
it as the echo of some unreliable par
tisan sheet like the Cincinnati En
quirer. The impression Bought to be
made by the stupid paragraph, is that
the President lias or will favor the
payment of a noii-inlerest-bearing
with uu interest-bearing liability.
Such tin impression is false, as every
man of commou intelligence knows.
The only change made by the Gov
ernment recently in regard to liabil
ities is to tako up bonds bearing six
per cent, interest and replacing them
with five per cent, bonds.
Paragraphs like the above come on
ly from extreme partisan sources, and
are written with a full knowledgo that
they nro utterly false. Tho man who
wot. Id write such a paragraph must
have mi- 'cecdingly poor opinion of

While snow and ice and bitter cold
weather lias visited some portions of
our country this fall, we enn hardly
realize it here. We are now writing
in a room without fire and the sun is
shining out brightly, so thnt one feels
more comfortable in the shade. Tho
roses are still blooming in our yards
and gardens. Cattle still have good
grazing on farms where proper atten
tion has been given to the grasses.
Stock of all kinds is running at large
and requiring little attention. Farm
ing operations are carried on with
little interruption. In fact our cli
mate is so fine, and we have become
so used to it, that we can scarcely
comprehend how our Northern neigh
bors live in a land of perpetual ico

Come down to our sunny South,
where all these things arc unknown.
A blood-curdling story is given cir
culation just now in some of the Dem
ocratic papers. It comes from Wash
ington, and its author is a Democratic
Federal officeholder, whoso " poverty
and a starving family" compels him to
accept a subordinate position from
the Government, to retain which he
has to pretend to be " the strongest of
Radicals."' lie accidentally came in
possession of the facts which is nothing
more nor less than a plot on the part
of certain " fanatics at the North" to
murder every " Member of Congress
who has been elected by tho shed
ding of negro blood," which the au
thor of the terrible story construes
into " every member of the South
who is a Democrat." The fact he
hastens to communicate to Senator
Gordon, of Georgia, and that gentle
man furnishes it to the Atlanta Her
old, which journal publishes it with
a profusion of ornamental andsensa
tional head lines. This is the story,
and it is very fortunato that
it came out in time, for now
tho victims can wind up their earthly
affairs and square their accounts for
another world, before they are called
upon to shuffle off their mortal coil. It
would be horrible to havo them cut

There would havo been something
horrible, we say, in rushing offalotof
Democratic Congressmen in such a
way. But tho time is too short any
way. Men who have so much to re
pent of ought to have a longer time
in which to do it, and wo trust these
bloody minded Northern fanatics will
postpone the massacre at least a
month. But if this can not bo done,
lot the undertakers be notified, so that
they may have all things in readiness.

NO WAR WITH SPAIN.
Tho question of a war with Spain
as been exciting some attention in
ids country for several days past,
i'liere has been a diversity of opinion
:i the subject. Some were confident
''nit preparations were being made
Kith in this country and in Spain for
ich nn event. The letter alleged to
ive been written by Don Carlos to
'.ing Alfonso, proposing a truce until
;'gotiations, or, in case negotiations
liled, until hostilities ceased between
pain and the United States. But it
: urns out that war has not been scri
nisly expected in official" circles.
The United States made certain
lemands for tho better protection of
:!io rights of American citizens in
Cuba, and Spain has yielded. Neither
war with Spain, the purchase of Cuba,
nor tho suppression of the rebellion
with Cuba, has had anything what
ever to do with the negotiations.
The local authorities in Cuba
have manifested a disregard or
rather an indifference to the rights of
Americans, and it was thi,s indiffcr
ence and disregard that the President
wished to correct, through Minister
dishing. A Washington special to
the Cincinnati Commercial of Friday
morning says the precise nature" of
the request from Mr. dishing pro
scntcd to the Madrid Court was " for
a more careful observance of tho terms
of the treaty of 1795. bv which
American residents in Cuba will be
afforded more efficient protection."
I he same special says :
" Tho Spanish Government was not proba
bly willing to go to the length thought
desirable by our Government, but it has
made concessions that are considered, for
the lime being, satisfactory, and tho subject
as between the two Governments is drop
ped, at least for the present.
" Several circumstances conspired to ere.
ato the recent excitement concerning i
threatening rupture of peace. In the first
place tho Associated Press dispatch from
this city, regarding the attitude of the
country toward Spain and Cuba. This dis
patch was taken bodily and verbatim from
the letter of instructions given to Minister
dialling in February, 1874. The full let-
tor wss printed with the message and
accompanying documents last December,
Those facts were stated in voiir columns
inrao weeks ai;o.
"In the public mind the questions
became somewhat mixed, and for
a while, notwithstanding vigorous protesta
tions from tho President and tho Cabinet
that no rupture of the friendly relations
was imminent, there seemed to be reason to
apprehend the very worst. Back of this
there was and is undoubtedly a ring on
Wall street which has funned the flames
the hope of affecting the gold market, and
they have spared no pains or money to ac
complish their purpose."
The statement here given, in refer
ence to tho Cuban Ring, is explana-
tory of the whole of it. They have a
lot of bogus bonds, upon which they
expect to make money dishonestly,
and to this end they wonld like to get
up on excitement whether there is a
basis for it or not.
Tke Washington Republican of
Friday morning in an editorial on this
subject says :
" How the i'resment ana Gov. Fish are
aware of these peculiarities of the Spanish
Gqvernment, and, instead of being at vari
ance regarding the manner in which
they should be treated, have been In
thorough accord, their joint object being to
secure prompt and reciprocal, as well as
amicable, compliance with all the obliga
tions imposed upon Spain by the treaty of
1795, and subsequent agreements of the
same character. In doing this tbey have
not hesitated to point out in the mct dis
tinct manner what they beliove to be the
inevitable result In the future of the
present condition of affairs in Cuba, viz
The independent of the Island of
r.uropean control- Hut they nave never
threatened a recognition of that independ
ence as the alternative of any act or failure
to act by the Spanish Government. He-
lying upon the intelligence, patriotism and
patience of the American people, they hav

to them to do so by publications of Spanish-
inspired ainertions regarding the progress
and condition of pending negotiations. It
is therefore impossible that any definite
and authoritative information beyond the
statements above male can now be mad
public regarding what they have done or
intend to do.
"This explanation will probably seivo
to relieve public anxiety, aud to contradict
the wild aud broad assertions recently mad
that war is imminent between Bpnin an
tho United plates."
