Don't let yourselves lie blinded ;

Nor do a syllogism.
We don't eDjoy rude health, like some,
Nor mannmh independence;
We re helpless as throe soft-shelled crabs,
Without some male attendants.

Too easily we're blinded.
We're clinging and banking
And truly levhle-uiuded.
We disapprove the sort of girl
Who Ciills for education,
And sells her talents, like a man,
For bold remuneration.

The rearing and feed ire of animals
are receiving an tbey nliould, from larm
ch and herdsmen in all parts of the
country greater attention every vear
and especially is this true of dairymen
whose only hope of gain rests in their
success in obtaining paying yields from
their cows. Corn stalks enter largely
into the fall feed of dairy cows, and how
to feed them is the important question.
The common practice is to feed them in
the bundle, a hut few farmers feel able
or wil.iDg to use a cutting machine.
This fcpiling a bundle without any
preparation, I am fully, satisfied, is very
wasteful, as not only are the butts left,
but frequently nearly the whole stalk.
I have learned by esf Al ienee that a little
brine sprinkled upon stalks once every
day, just leore feeding, is of material
advantage in many respects. The weak
brine will cause the cows to coneume
neatly all, even when fed whole; the
flow of milk increases, the condition of
the cows improves, and they show
greater cor.tentment; especially is the
lata remark true n cold, windy and
rainy days. I find it much better, as a
general rule, when it can be done, to
feed salt on the food, instead of feeding
it alone. In no case should more than
one day be permitted to pass without.
Cows should have accefs to plenty of
water; this brine food will caue them
to drink more, and thus increase the How
of milk. Let inv brother trv thin an, 1

The breeders of fancy stock sometimes

we have not seen a more sensible thrust
at the "fancy" for a long time than
the following, by J. S. Latimer, in a late
nunilier of the National Live Stock
The very sensible inquiry of John
Cook, with your remarks thereon, in the
last number of the Journal, and
his and your suggestions in regard to
what the farmers want in the wav of cat
tle, brings to my mind the many letters
and inquiries I have received e. g.:
"Have you any short-horn cows that

fair price that will give milk enouirh to
raise her calf, and furnish some for family
use?" " Have you any cows that will
raise, their calves?" Dozens of such in
quiries as the alove are made, esjecially
at the fairs (as any one know who has
attended then) and shown cattle). I was
not a little amused at a veteran pair of
well-to do person" that had raised a lanre
family, and accumulated a goodly share
of this world's goods, at a fair in Henry
county. III., where a grand display of
several leading herds of' this part ot the
state were on exhibition. After looking
with much interest over the many very
line animals, and asking manv questions
as to their turrits, thev seated "themselves
near, in the shade, the old lady remark
ing (to her li tter half), with a signifi
cant look and gesture, " Them cattle are

How would we have raised all the
boys and girls that we have, without
milk? You've got (o have milk to raise
calves and pigs, and children too, old
man !" That's so. There is no use
of dodging the question, and the true
What do we want cattle for? Rich men
and lords can jifli.rd to have them for
pedigrees and playthings, but the toiling
masses of farmers will not and dare not
overlook the useful, practical and essen
tial qualities of the short-horn cow. And
if the breeders of America would compre
hend the real wants and wishes of the
American farmer, and quit breeding for
jm digrce alone, and breed for the true
merits of cattle beef and milk instead,
as is now the disposition, of breeding for
pedigree, without any of the aljove qual
ifications, then, and not until then, shall
we b e the farmers enlisting en maxse in
tho enterprise. I will say, lor the bene
fit of Mr. Cook and others, that I have
always found' the short-horn cow equal,
if not superior, to any other for niilkand
butter; and I believe that among the old
and reliable families of cattle, (where they
have been bred for the useful qualities a
they should be), you may yet find cows
that have no superiors at the pail. I have
at least three families in my herd, and
all the fault I find with them is they
give too much milk. I have had no
ther than thoroughbred cows on the
farm for three years past, and have only
milked what I had to that is, what the
calves would not take and, at this time,
from eight cows (four of them heifers),
raising nine calves, we are gettiDg lour
pailfuls per day ; and I have never set
down to my table without having an
abundanee of nice butter and plenty of
milk and rich cream, which 1 thins a
good thing for children as well as calves
and pig, all three of which are strictly
essential on a well-regulated farm.
THE TRAIN ROBBERS.
Desperatefarrerof th Yonnwer Brother
Hew rinkertou'i JUteTlvs
Special to the Cincinnati Gazette.
The hunt after the train robbers, since
the confession of Hobbs Kerry, has
dropped into what the search has been
after most of the bold tram robbers of
late years, that is in an attempt to cap
ture the famous Younger and James
brothers. That the endeavor will be
successful this time is by no means cer
tain. The desperadoes are successfully
hidden for the present, and in the wild
reeions of the Missouri, where shot euns
and democratic majorities are the chief
products, they have hosts of friends who
took upon them as heroes, and who stand
always ready to" warn them of the ap
proach of danger. That Cole Younger
was the leading and controlling spirit in
the Otterville train robbery, is now be
lieved tolerably ceitain, and some hith
erto unpublished particulars in the life
af the man foremost in such an act, be
come at once interesting.
I5y those who know him, the man is
regarded as of unquestionable daring
and a rare address. He is no ordinary
character, but a sober, scheming individ
ual, who goes about his work cold
blooded ly, and who is sufficient of a
reader of character to make no mistakes
in his associates. His personal
peculiarities are numerous. He always
goes about armed with two heavy revol
vers, in the use of which he is an expert,
being able on occasion to draw both
from his belt, one in each hand, at the
same time, and to fire them with equal
accuracy. Thysical accomplishments,
indeed, seem to have been made tbe
boast and pride of this freebooter, lie
shoots a pistol over his shoulder with per
fect skill, and at Monegow Springs has
been seen to ride at full speed around
the race track and shoot at a mark on a
tree, hitting it easily without checking
his hor e's sjieed. lie has also the In
dian trick of hanging down on one side
of bis horse, and while clinging to the
neck with one hand firing under the
horse's head with his usual skill. Natu
rally such an artist in the use of fire
arms must be one pursued with caution
either by the average detective or aver
age Missouri sheriff.
As a matter of fact, since the Younger
broihera became open outlaws, they have
not been constant residents of Missouri,
keeping out of the state most of the time,
and finding a refuge in Texas, where
they occupy a ranche, or occasionally, it
is believed, in Kentucky. It has been
their custom to revisit their home in St.
Clair county in the spring and fall,
making a sudden appearance when no
one had suspected them of being in the
country, and then as suddenly making
One remarkable fact in the recent his
tory of Cole Younger, and one not here
tofore made public, will surprise many
people, among whom, possibly, will be
Pinkerton's detectives. A gentleman,
now a resident of St. Louis, who or.ee,
for a purpose of his own, befriended Cole
Younger, gives the particulars: Last fall
Cole, notwithstanding the price upon his
head, accompanied a party of stock
dealers to New York, taking a thousand
head of cattle. Cole Youncer srjent
sometime in New York'and subsequently
visited Chicago, and, while there, in a
spirit of fool hardiness, probably, had an
actual interview at length with a mem
ber of Tinkerton's force. His appearance
and address were such as to enaWe him
to elude all suspicion, and to leave the
city rapidly without giving any one a
clue to his identity. Imagine the feel
ings of the detectives upon learning that
the man of all others they most want
was thus within their reach. Coming to

The gentleman who gives this inform
ation says Cole lounger always assured
him he would never be captured alive.
Why it is the Younger boys still remain
in a state which lias become so uncom
fortable for them is found in an odd cir
cumstance. The administrator of their
father's estate at Booneville has, it is said,
tiie sum ot if 20,000 in his hands, which
they hope eventually to get, but which
is ny no means easy u secure. This is
the loadstone which attracts theoutlaws.
and which may yet lure them within

Texas or the far west would probably
gain the undesirable citizens permanent

indicate that the James and Yountrei
boys are now operating together, but this
assertion is disbelieved by some of those
test informed, as the two groups of free-
iiooters have for romc time been at log
gerheads. One part of the statement is,
however, confirmatory in itself, Hobbs
Kerry saying that one iortion of the
band were under Younger's, and the
other portion under James' control, a
proof that more leaders were required
than one. The other Younger boys have
none oi them C'ole s capacity of control.
How the present chase will terminate is.
as already stated, an unanswerable con
u nd rum. The odds are rather that the
leaders of the reckless gang will escape
a most unfortunate condition of things.
" Some twenty-eight years ago," said
senator Silver Jones to a reporte" of the
Philadelphia Times, " I went to Cali
fornia, and on the way out was an old
gambler, with a setout of faro boxes,
roulette tables, etc. He took a liking to
me, and he said: "Johnny, 111 tell
you a secret that may save you many a
dollar. Io you see this roulette wheel ?
It's circle is black and red, and they bet
on the colors a nearly even chance.
Now, watch me, Johnny, as I sit here
and spin the ball. Do you see me gently
raise my knees and press under the frame
of the table? Well, those red and
black compartments are connected by
two sets of wires. I raise my knee
when I see that the bulk of money is on
the red, and that wire running through
the r(d trills and trembles, so that the
ball won't rest n any red cell, but is re
pelled and settles in some black spot.
"Johnny, remember this when you have
bagcred your gold dust." I went into a
gambling house about a year afterward
to make a stake. There was a fine,
fighting gambler sitting there spinning
roulette. Said I to myself, Young
man. I'll just take a peep at your knees.'
He raised them very gently, and I
planted my money against the pile,
knowing th it when he swept the great
amount on" for the red he must pay the
black. So I picked up a hundred dollars
or so. Eveiy time I hit it. That
gambler got bis eye on me. It was an
eye full of small-pox audacity. He ad
dressed me finally in a loud tone of
voice. Said he : " 4 Didn't I tell you
never to come here again ? Didn't I'teil
vou that this was a place for gentlemen ?
This a gentleman's game. That n:an,
gentlemen, it is my dutv to arn you
against ; that loafer is a thief. " Well,"
continued Jones, " I had never in my
life been there before, but I saw the
scheme. If I resented what the boss
said there were forty fellows there, cap
pars so forth, to kick me down stairs and
rob me, so 1 meekly said: ' Well, sir, I
do not wish to make any disturbance
here. If you don't want me here I'll
take my money, and go.' "
THE NEGRO IX POLITICS.
From the recent speech of lion. L. Q. C.
House of Representatives.
Sir, but the other day a distinguished
senator from the Pacific coast made a
most striking protest against the further
immigration of Chinese into the commu
nity there, and still more recently both
parties seemed to be Tying with each
other as to which should go farthest in
preventing this admixture of the Mongo
lian race with ours. To illustrate the
disturbing force of this measure, let us
suppose that in the nix New England
Btates and the states of New York and
New Jersey, whose population corres
ponds most nearly to that of our south
ern states, in one night 4.000,000 of un
accustomed, incongruous population,
such as Mexicans and Chinese, should
be incorporated into the political sys
tem of those commonwealths, and by
some paramount power outside those
states should be bo compacted together
as to gain control of all the departments
of our government, of all the offices, all
the institutions, state and municipal in
a word, invested with the entire sover
eignty of their body-politic. I ask you
would not the repose of society be dis
turbed ; would not the assurance of law,
of healthful industry, ot business ar
rangements and investments would not
all confidence give way to dismay and
perplexity, to restless fears, wild passions
and bloody scenes ? Why, sir, the more
splendid their political civilization, the
more complex their system of laws, and
the more perfectly adjusted their social
and economic forces, and the higher the
moral tone of their Bociety, the more
hideous would be the ruin and the more
refined the agony of the people subjected
to sucn a catastrophe.
But the case as supposed is not as
strong as the case which actually oc
curred in the southern states. The4 -000,000
people who by a scratch of the
pen were made citizens and crushed into
our political system, the 800,000 voters
and office-holders and legislators and
magistrates, had just emerged from the
immemorial condition of slaves.
This fearful experiment was regarded
by thinking men all over the world with
the profoundest concern and misgiving.
It was viewed with disfavor by a large
majority even of the republican party.
Its most able and most extreme leaders
looked upon it as committing society
to the sway of ignorance, eervility, cor
ruption and tyranny; and such was
their sentiment until the conflict of the
republican party with president Johnson
and one other cause, which I shall notice
before I close, seemed to sweep away
consideration of reason and justice.
MORTON'S VIEWS OF THE NEGRO IN 1865'
In 1865, the year in which there wa3
in the south certain legislation which
has been the subject ot much denuncia
tion of the south and the occasion and
excuse for the oppressive and humiliat
ing methods which have been applied to
her people I say in that year Sir. O. P.
Morton, in a message to the legislature
of Indiana, used the following language :
" It is a fact so manifest that it should
not be called in question by any that a
people who are just emerging from the
barbarism of slavery are not qualified to
become a part of our political system and
take part not only in the government of
themselves and their neighbors, but of
the whole United states.
" S far from believing that negro suf
frage is a remedy for all of national ills,
I doubt whether it is a remedy for wiy,
and rather believe that its enforcement
by congress would be more likely to sub
ject the negro to merciless persecution
than confer upon him any substantial
By some it is thought that suffrage
is already cheap enough in this country;
and the immediate transfer of more than
half a million men from the bonds
slavery, with all the ignorance and the
degradation upon them which the sla
very of generations upon southern fields
has produced, would be a declaration to
the world that the exercise of American
suffrage involves no intellectual or moral
qualifications, and that there is no differ
ence between an American freeman and
an American slave which may not be rc
moved by a mere act of congress.
iow, sir, in a speech wnicn this gen
ueman maae in Indiana belore those peo-
1 : -j i.-t
utvauie iuvesu;u wuu any political
rights, here is his language :
" I believe that in the case of four
million slaves just freed from bondage,
there should be a period of probation
and preparation before they are brought
to the exercise ot political power.
What is their condition ? Perhaps not
one in live hundred I might say one in
a thousand can read, and perhaps not
one in five hundred is worth five dollars
in property of any kind."
jow, sir, notice the language ot Mr.
Morton in the following sentences:
" Can you conceive that a body of men
white or black, who have been in this
condition, and their ancestors before
them, are qualified to be immediately
lilted irom their present state into the
full exercise of power, not only to govern
themselves and their neighbors, but to
take part in the government of the
United States? Can they be regarded
as intelligent and independent voters?
I lie mere state or facts furnishes the an
swer to the question. To say
that such men and it is no fault of
theirs; it is simply a misfortune and
crime of this nation to say that such
men, just emerged from slavery,are qual
ineo ior tne exercise ot political power
is to make the strongest pro-slavery ar
gument 1 ever Heard. It is to pay the
highest compliment to the institution of
Then he goes on with his objections to
clothing these people with the rights of
citizenship and sunrasre. frays he
" The right to vote carries with it the
right to . hold office. You can not say
that the negro has a natural right to
vote, but that he must vote only tor
white men for office."
Then, after demonstrating that point,
ne muses mis conclusion :
" If you enfranchise all.the negroes in
these states you will have at least twenty
negro votes to one white vote, and in the
work of reconstructing the states ot
North Carolina, Alabama and Florida
you will have a larger proportion per
haps thirty colored votes to one white,
Now, I ask you, what is to be the effect
of that? I he first effect will be, you
will have colored state governments."
After going into a long argument to
prove this lact ne reaches this conclu
" They will have colored governors and
colored members ot congrss ana sena
tors and judge of the supreme court.
etc. ery well ; and suppose they do
send colored senators and representatives
to congress; 1 have no doubt you will
find men in the north who will be willing
to sit beside them, and will not think
themselves degraded by so doine. I
have nothing to say to this. I am sim
ply discussing the political effect of it.
In every state where there is a colored
state government, a negro forgovernor and
a negro tor supreme judge, white emigra
tion will cease.there will be no more white
emigration to any such state. You can
not find the most ardent anti-slavery
man in Wayne county who will go and
locate in a state that has a colored state
Now, sir, why ascribe to the conduct
of the people ot the south this exclusion
of emigration when here is predicted
beforehand the result of the state of
thmgs which have occurred ? Here is his
conclusion : r
"I submit, then, however clearly and
strongly we may admit the natural right
of the negro 1 submit it to the intelli
gence of the people that colored state gov
ernments are not desirable ; that they
will bring about results that are not to
be hoped for; that finally they would
threaten to bring about, and I believe
would result in, a war of races."
Those were his predictions in 1865.
Now what is his remedy ? Here iris :
" If I had the power I would arrange
it in this way: I would give these tnen
a probation and preparation ; I would
give them time to acquire a little prop
erty and get a little education ; time
to learn something about the simplest
forms of business and prepare themselves
for the exercise of political power."
Well, sir, that looks amiable and
friendly towards these men. But why
put them under this system of probation"?
For the benefit of the race? In order to
elevate them ? That is not the motive
which upon that occasion he declared.
Here is what he says :
"At the end of tn, fifteen, or twenty
Sir, that time has not elapsed. What
would he do at the end of ten, fifteen or
twenty years ?
"At the end of ten, fifteen or twenty
years let them com into the enjoyment
of their political rights."
Why, then 1
By that time these states will have
been so completetly filled up by immi

that the negro will be in a permanent

" Thus by postponing the thing "
"Only to such time3 as the negroes
are qualified to enjoy political rights,
the danger I have been considering
would have fully passed away. Their

Now, sir, if this terrible prospect
struck this distinguished statesman
in Indiana with such alarming
effect, what must have been the
shock to the people of the south
upon whom the thunderbolt fell ? If he
foresaw this terrible avalanche and
warned the people of Indiana who were
beyond its destructive sweep, what must
have been the appalled feeling, sir, of
the southern society upon whom it was
to be let loose ? Such was his advice in
Indiana. Now, suppose him to be in
the south ; take Mr. Morton from his
gubernatorial chair in Indiana and put
him, in 1865, among the people of the
south, and what would have been his
advice? What in point of fact was his
advice to the people of the south ? What
was the thing the people of the south
were called upon to do at that time by
this distinguished gentleman from the
north as well as by a distinguished gov
ernor of Massachusetts, whose views I
ask permission to print with my re
marks? Ilia advice was: " You must
not admit these people into the political
system of this government ; they are not
qualified to vote ; they must not take
part in the government of their neigh
bors or any participation in the federal
government of this country ; and to keep
it from them you must fix upon them a
svstem of probation which will hold
them down and keep them out of your
political system until they are in a per
That being his advice, it is strange, I
repeat, that the people ef the south just
returned from the war, all their society
in ruins, full of wretchedness and disap
pointment, this race emancipated lying
upon their plantations, neither slave nor
citizen and .without any indication of
the national sentiment that they were to
become citizens; in disorder, without
law for the slave laws were abolished
and they were at that time not within
the provisions of the civil code which
applied to the white race it is strange,
sir, that in improvising legislation which
under this terrible pressure, this appall
ing calamity, these bewildering changes,
which have lollowed one upon the other
with such rapidity is it strange that
that system should have some of the in
cidents of the old system .'
Mr, it is to be arrayed against them
until the end of time as an evidence on
their part of a purpose to remand that
people to the servitude of slavery?
Measure these pepole by what the senti
ment was at that time, and not by stand
ard you have erected at this time. It
was not a system which was well advised
or well executed, for, sir, it was repealed
by the legislature which passed it the
very "moment the public sentiment of
the south could reach those who did

This policy, so repugnant to Mr. Mor
ton's sentiment and view of public in
terest, so suggestive of the alarming re
suits which have actually ensued, could
not possibly have been less acceptable to
the southern people, uith no preiu
dice against the negro, they regarded
this clothing ot him with the awful
powers of government as exposing their
society to the wildest disorder. Jiut
when the policy was fastened upon them
they knew that they had a more tre
mendous stake in its well-working than
any other people ; they knew that the
attempt to reverse or obstruct it would
be ruinous; and they set to work
with an earnestness for which I know
they do not get credit to adjust their
natural relations to the new order of
things, and give it a free, fair, and suc
cessful development. It might have had
such a development. There were acen

took no note, and which it is difficult

Under the operation of those benicn
nfluences, these friendly relations, and
the workings of local self-government,
there wyis a well-founded hope that so
ciety at the south might be reconstruct
ed, even though it would have to be
done with the dUjecta membra of the old
broken-up system, there was one diffi
culty in the way. The conflict between
the republican party and Mr. Job neon
began. I do not wish to say anything
gainst his memory ; but nis champion
ship, or seeming championship, of the
south seemed to be mote damaging than
his hostility had been.
Ihe result ot that connict was that
the federal government assumed, as a
political necessity, the exclusive pre
rogative or reconstructing government
in the south. The policy of recon tiuc
tion excluded the white race (on account
of its suspected disloyalty) as the basis
of the new order, uut, as me Diacs
race was considered, as incompetent to
manage the new structure built for
them, military power, for the first time
in th history of the American govern
ment, was employed as the force to put
and keep in operation the machinery of
civil government. I do not propose to
discuss this policy, but simply to call
special attention to one feature of it.
All the measures in the furtherance of
that policy, the Freedman's bureau,
which cut all connection of the two
races sheer asunder, whos3 agents ar.d
officers were made judges to.try and pun
ish offenses by the whites against the
rights of freedmen, without jury or the
right of judicial appeal ; the act divid
ing the south, without reference to state
lines, into military districts, and vesting
the power of appointing all civil officers
in a commanding general ; the acta for
restoring civil governments were all
based upon this one idea of protecting
the enfranchised black race against the
wrongs anticipated from the disfranchised
white race; and, as a matter of fact,
therefore, this reconsrnction legislation,
as conceived and enforced, actually ar
rayed the two races into distinct and op
posing classes, and drew the color-line as
distinctly and perfectly as if such race
distinction had peenenioined in the con
stitution. The very first principle of
government your new-made citizens saw
in operation was the principle of race
discrimination. The very first lesson in
civil government which they learned was
the proscription of the white race as an
object of political distrust and resent
ment. The strange spectacle of these two
races locally interminsrled, bound togeth
er by the strongest ties of interest and af
fection, yet as completely separated po
litically as if a deep gult had sunk be
tween them ; tin passions incident to
party contests in which the contestants
differ not in convictions, but in race, and
now charged as one of the heavy items
against the south, find their authorship
and origin in the legislation of the gov
ernment and the action of its agents. One
moments consideration will convince any
fair mind of this. The measure devised
for the sole benefit, protection, and ascen
dency of one race will surely command
the support of that race ; and if the same
policy disfranchises the other race, hurls
from its proud tradition into a condition
rife with all the elements of humiliation,
and deprives it even of its ancient
guarantees against oppession of arbitra
ry power, the inevitable effect is perforce
to drive that race into opposition to those
measures. Thus, I repeat, by a policy
which drew one race to its support and
drove the other into opposition, the sep
aration of the two was produced without
the voluntary agency of either and
against the natural tendencies of both.
The report ot every investigating com
mittee sent to the south confirms this
for, sir, the south has been
SUBJECTED TO AN ORDEAL
that no other community in the world
has ever been mbiected to. It has been
uncovered and subjected to a microscope
investigation into all the details of its
society. 1 hold m my hand a report
made by Messrs. Hoar, t ryeand V heeler.
in which, speaking of the state of things
in xjouisiaua, one oi tne causes mere
mentioned in the fact that the adminis
tration party is made up by passing to
gethei almost entirely the black vote
with a few whites, largely from other
etatest These few whites largely from
other states are a class of men who came
as agents of the freedman's bureau,
thence transferred to the military de
partment, from which they were carried
over oy tne oeyonet to the recon
structed civil government. And there
tbey have been maintained by the
power of the federal government ever
since, gorging themselves with the spoils
of that plundered people until recently
their grasps upon our throats has been
broken by the protecting force of an en
lightened public sentiment at the north
and west. It is not my purpose to de
scribe the character of the governments
which resulted from this policy. I call
attention simply to two principles they
embodied. Gibbon, in his history of
Rome, speaking of Egypt, says that the
most absurd and oppressive svstem of
government that can le conceived of is
that which subjects the natives of a
country to the domination of its own
slaves. John Stuart Mill, in his work on
representative, says that a govern
ment administered by rulers re
sponsible to the governed may be
a good government according to
the character of the constituency
which it represents ; but that a govern
ment administered by rulers who are not
responsible to the people of the govern
ment, but to some other community or
power, is one ot the worst conceivable
systems of government ; and, sir, these
hideous structures in the south were a
composite of those two vicious systems.
The people there were subjected to the
domination of our iormer slaves ; we
were ruled over by men not responsible
to the people governed, but to the fed
eral government. Gov. Chamberlain
and Gov. Kellogg come here to make
their reports, and to get their instruc
tious, and they neither thinlc nor care
for the people of Louisiana or South
Carolina. No man has ever had the
temerity, since I have been here, to de
fend or apologize for these governments.

If such an unpromising constituency
as Alabama turns squarely around on

northern communities do? Taking this
election as a measure, it looks as though
the third term would meet with a disas

unworthy of even the negative merit of
being a disagreeable alternative. Ihe

We do not excuse violence. Nothing
excuees murder or lawlessness. But
these crimes which happen in the south,
and of which, just now, the president
and the republican organs and politicians
give such horrifying accounts, are not
without cause. They are the results of
a long course of abuse begun and contin
ued by unscrupulous and selnsh northern
adventurers, who have, with the help of
tne federal government, preyed upon
southern society, and who have not even
had the courage and energy to punish
these crimes ot which their conduct has

Franz Sigel for Tilden means verv
emphatically that Carl Schurz will not
have it his own way in taking over the
Germans to the camp of 1 laves and
Wheeler. We are likely lo witness some
curious changing of sides in this canvass.
While men like Carl Schurz, ex-governor
Fenton and John Cochrane are going
back to the republican camp, men like
Sigel are coming out. Schurz was dis
appointed because the democrats failed
to re-elect him, and goes back to the
party he had left in disgust. Fenton,
who left the party because the patronage
was given ut tonKjing, goes oacic be
cause he got no patronage from the dem
ocrats. General John Cochran, alas!

was an interval of profound quiet, bi t
before the November electionu of lat t
year an attempt was made to get more
troops, to which the president refused to
yield. The result was that the state, as
everybody expected, went democratic;
and now the president, who last year,
after all the previous riots, thought
troops were not needed, sits down and
writes a letter (on J uiy zb, oeiore tne
appearance of this report) to governor
Chamberlain, confiding to him that ' Mis
sissippi is governed to day by officials
chosen through fraud and violence, such
as would scarcely be accredited to savages,
much less to a civilized and cnnsiian
people.' If he knows this now, he must
have apprehended it then, and his re
fusal to interfere must be characterized
as an act which 'would scarely be ac
credited to savages,' much less to the
president of 'civilized and christian peo
ple.' And now comes this second con
gressional report, and declares that the
state is in a condition of anarchy ( it has
been, judged by all external signs, in a
condition of profound peace ever since),
and that we may have to make it a ter
ritory and begin reconstruction at the
point it had reached in 1865. In other
words, we have Mr. Boutwell assuring

The paradise of fools, " to few un
known," Is the mental comment as one
sees the many evidences of people's care
lessness, foolishness, and stupidity which
are displayed at the dead letter office
museum. Arranged in glass cases on the
four sides of the room are all of these
waifs of travel, displayed with a view to
their respective attractions and sugges
tive of the treachery of postage stamps
and the adverse fate which sometimes
overtakes even mail-bags. There is
everything known to tlie useful and
ornamental; everything not smaller
than a thimble or larger than a stove
pipe hat. Such a pathetic array of
might-have-beens, so eloquent of disap
pointments and blighted hopes ! Locks
of hair there are whole switches of
them and as for photographs, we are
told that there are forty bushels of them
in the basement of the building. But
fancy yourself the recipient of a nice
parcel from the hands of the postman
some morning, which upon being opened
discloses a live snake ! Whether one
would go into raptures or hysterics at
such a treasure would be a matter
of taste, I suppose. But then peo
ple do send snakes through the mail,
and sometimes they come back to the
dead letter office for want of a claimant,
and we see them leading a serenely
spiritual existence in a glass jar, among
other stray postal curiosities. It is a
fact that a postmaster once found a small
live alligator disporting among the let
ters and papers in a mail-bag. There
was also a boquet of fresh flowers, which
had slipped out of its box ; and a couple
f empty boxes, very similar in size and
shape, and both addressed to ladies, left
the poor man in doubt as to which the
alligator belonged and to which the
flowers. Imagine the fair recipient of
the flowers finding a monster in her box,
instead of the delicate offering which she
had expected 1 B'lt the postmaster
made no blunder; he put the flowers
into one box, the alligator info the other;
notified the ladies of the slight confusion
of propetty which bad taken place, and
directed each to exchange with the other
if she should receive the wrong article.
But he was gratified to learn, shortly
afterwards, that there had been no mis
take made. Jewelry is one of the arti
cles most commonly intrusted to letters

haphazard fashion, and the loss of these
small sums and the ignorance or care

upon a journey represents a deal of suffer

verting, every vital process. Nature attempts
to rid the system of these noxious materials
by means of other organs, as the kidneys,
lungs, skin, etc., which become overtaxed in
performing their additional labor, and are
unable to withstand the pressure.
The brain, which is the great electrical
center of all vitality, becomes overstimulated
with unhealthy blood, and fails to normally
perform its functions. Hence there is dull
ness, headache, impairment of the memory,
dizziness, gloomy forebodings, and irritabil
ity of temper. When the blood is diseased,
the skin manifests discolored spots, pimples,
blotches, boils, carbuncles, and scrofulous
tumors. The stomach and bowels, sooner or
later, become affected, and constipation,
piles, dropsy, dyspepsia, or Jiarrho a, is the
SYMPTOMS OF LIVBR COMPLAINT.
A sallow color of the skin, or yellowish
brown spots on the face and other parts of
the body; dullness and drowsiness, with
frequent headache; dizziness, bitter or bad
taste in the month, dryness in the throat, and
internal heat; palpitation of the heart; a
dry, teasing cough, sore throat, unsteady
appetite, sour stomach, raising of the food,
and a choking sensation in the throat; sick
ness and vomiting, dh-tresa, heaviness, and a
blosted, or full feeling about the stomach
and sides; aggravating pains in the sidi-H,
back or breast, and about the shoulders;
colic pains and soreness through the bowels;
constipation, alternating with diarrhtra ;
piles, flatulence, nervousness, coldness of the
extremities, rush of blood to the head, with
symptoms of apoplexy; numbness of the
limbs (especially at night), and chills, alter
nating with hot flashes; kidney and other
urinary difficulties, dullness, low spirits, and
gloomy forebodings. Only a few of these
symptoms will be likely to be present in any
case at one time.
Treatment. Take Pr. Pierce's Golden
Medical Discovery, with small doses of his
Pleasant Purgative Pellets, which act as in
alterative on "the liver. For Liver Complaint
and the various affections caused by a dis

and ennchea, ana tne entire system reno
vated and restored to health.

Dr. Bchenck's Sea Weed Tonic Containing the
juices of many medicinal herbs, thia preparation
does not create an appetite fur the inlexicuting

a most strengthening influence. A alngle bottle !
the Tonic will demonstrate its valuable qualities.
For debility arising from sickntss, over exertion

tbe stomach and create an appetite ior wholeaoine
