THE HERALD AND MAIL.
Friday Morning, May 11th, 1877.
at Kara, ami 14.W0
Hayks has failed an extra session of
Coniirewi for (Vtoln-r 15. 1S77. He'
afraid of a Democratic Contrnws will
starve the army firxt.
The most outrageous, dastardly and
eowardlv act that ever took place in
fie Ktate of Tennessee, occurred at Co
lumbia la.nt "Wtilnexlay nicht.'when a
mob burned (iovernor Porter and our
Supreme Juclirc in etligy. They try to
justify the act on the uround that one
Thouia.Hon niiouid Jiave been huuir yes
terday, lut wlio at the solicitation of
our Supreme Judjte, had hw sentence
oniinuted to inipriwiiiueiit for life bv
(Iovernor Porter. Thoinanon ia as in
nocent of the crime he is sentenced to
imprisonment for life for, as the editor
of the Herald and and Mail. Jirownn-
The editor of the liu , AV. I. West-
brook, seems to know who killed It. ('.
Jackson. If he does not know, then
the al)ove assertion is very extraordin
ary. It is on a par, however, with
what he says alxnit those w ho burnt"
the Supremo Court in effigy. We took
no part in the effigy business, but feel
sure that the country papers ore not
acting with their customary discretion
and fairness in condemning an act with
out knowing the facts. We have not
condemned Gov. Porter, lecause he
was al most forctd into w hat ho did by
(Jen. Heiskell, (Jen. Quark, and the
Supreme Court. What we had to say
w as in criticism of. the Supreme Court,
whosaid Thomason's was a hanging re
cord, and refused a new trial; and then
liecause a maudlin public sentiment
was created by Thomason's protesta
tionsof innocence, they, without a sin
gle new fiict lciug forthcoming, said it
was not a hanging record and reversed
their own decision. That one act of
the Supreme Court will cause at least
n hundred murders to be committed in
Tennessee. If a ncwspncr docs not
criticise the action of the highest offi
cials when they fail to do their duty,
then it is not worthy of its mission
The Supreme Court of Tennessee has
no power after its adjournment to ask
the Executive of the State to extend
its clemency only as one of the m-ople
The Supreme Court is no longer cloth
ed in the pure ermine of Judicial Em
inence, but as private individuals, and
when they jointly petition the Govern
or to extend an act of Grace, they do
it as the humblest citizens of the State,
and not as a Supreme Court. If this
august tribuiiid who preside with so
much dignity on the highest IkiicIi of
Judicature in Tennessee thought the
prisoner innocent of the crime alleged
ivit did thrt not in solemn council re
commend Executive clemency when
the prisoner stood before the liar of the
court? They there pronounced him
guilty and invoked the supreme Pontiff
of heaven to have mercy on his soul,
and that the "prisoner would be hang
ed, hanged, hanged, until he le frcad,
J)rad, Drad; there is no help for him
Certainly the Court must lx- guilty of
great dereliction of duty and justice to
say that Thomason was guilty when
they knew he was innocent. Why not
announce the fact from the Bench and
not wait for the Governor to correct an
-ror of the C.u.-t, when the Court it
self could have rendered the cause for
a new hearing and thereby give a jury
of his countrymen the right to acquit,

Mitctiener. aifeo lour vears.
We realize more and more every day that
the sweetest flowers are soonest plucked. To
our finite eyes it seems passing strange that
mere nonenlties, curaoerers oi tne erounu
are suffered to remain anu live out an ap
parently aimless, and often a miserable ex
istence, while the young, the beautiful, the
loved and the nappy are tanen irom us.
But faith ever stands ready with an answer.
which snould oring comion ana rrsigna
tlou to the saddest neart. xney are tauen
away from the evil, to come, and while the
very love we bear to the gentle and tender
little ones, make us tremble to think what
possible trials may await them In' the lu
ture, we can rejoice to know that the lamts
who are gathered by the Good Shepherd are
safe, forever safe from them all.
Every one who knew her, loved little Car
rie. She was so bright, so beautiful, so full
of love to every living creature, that she
seemed to possess a charm which none who
knew her could resist. Even in her infancy
she seemed to manliest an 8 flection for all
around her, and especially to her parents,
who almost Idolized their only daughter.
When she was ouly a few months old, her
father used to say of her, that sbe "loved to
be loved" more tlian any one he had ever
known, and wlOj parents, brothers, rela
tives, and friends she was alwaysone whom
it was a pleasure and a privilege to caress.
To the sorrowing parents we would say, "Be
comforted, for God doot h all thlnas well.
He has not destroyed the little tlower.which
for a few years, shed Its beauty and fra
grance in your family circle, but has trans
planted It to bloom in perennial loveliness
In the green past ures and by the still waters
or paradise, xne ungniesi smiie anu me
sweetest voice are missing now from your
home upon earth, but it Is a blissful thought
that little Carrie, now a radiant and beauti
ful anted. Is waiting and wntcuiiix to wel
come vou tbrouKh the pearly Kates into Je
rusalem the Golden. Heaven wl:l lie dearer
to you now, that there Is something there
which you can claim as ail your own, and
Uie taouttot nieellnK your lost dannm will
be an additional Incentive to you to seek,
yet more earnestly to gain an abundant eu-
trauoe into tne parauise oi uou.;
Ob f not in cruelty, not in wrath.
The reaper came that day,
But an angel visited the green earth,
And took your flower away.
