for old and ;( fir now.
We tliank St-nntor James E. Bailey
for a i'ily of Lis able speech on the
"I'acifie Ilailroads." The Democratic
party is opptvcJ to nioniK)Iieu of all
kinds, and as tlii-s iilroad haw re
ceived such immense iKiuntiea from
the Ciovernuu-nt, it should le held to
a strict account and made to pay what
it justly owes the Government. Mr.
Ballfy'a in an able legal argument,
and mut carry conviction to all who
will read it. We are glad to say that
Thurman's (Democrat ) bill passed the
Senate, and we hope it will pass the
House, as we have no doubt it will.
The Shelby ville Commercial, an ex
treme paper on the debt question, and
against the settlement proposed last
wiuter, says in regard to Col. Colyar,
"What will the people think of a man
going over tlie State with a view to
influence them to nominate him for
Governor, that would be bought with
money?" This is hard on a man to
com from a japer advocating the
ame doctrines with himself. Is the
Vurnmcrcial prepared to make good
this charge? We do not believe in
making charges even on jxshtical op
ponents without l big prepared to
prove them. As to what the Commer
cial says a! suit Judge Marks, Col.
Gardner or Gen. I5ate being prepared
to run on bis platform, we cannot for
it-moment IsvJieve it. Jfe must make
up his mind to take Colyar or Savage,
and he should not, in view of this
fact Im.' now too tvvere on the strong
mau, or the hrahf, as he is called, of
his party. (.Jo .-low, brother Commer
cial. The Lebanon JI.mld in its last isue
Fnys that it lias long Utn s-atisticd
that the "next Democratic Slate Con
vention will 1k3 an extreme low tax
organization, if it does not go for open
repudiation," therefore, the 1 braid
intends "lo wield a free lance in the
coming canvass." We can not think
with the Jfr rniil. We amiot liclicvc
that the Democratic party will go
bock on all its principles and pledges,
and place in the hands of it oppo
nents the weapon wish v. hich to de
stroy the party. If ihcie is anything
that the enemies of Democracy now
desire more than another it is to see
the Southern Democrats take ground
in fivor of repudiation because they
lo.-t their slaves. They feci that this
position would be fatal to them as a
National l'ariy. Let them not lay
this llatlering unction to their souls.
The Democratic party is not . blind
and i-tupid, and will not fall into the
ditch they have dug for them. The
Jferald will not be under the necessi
ty of using his lance against the nom
inee of the Democratic l'aity.
The Democratic Tarty, in its Con
vention at St. LiiHis, which nomina
ted Tilden and Hendricks, demanded
the repeal of that section of the lle
Mimplion Act which made January 1,
1 S71 the date of a resumption of
fpecic payments. Such was then, and
is now the posh ion of the National
Democracy. WhiNt they are in favor
of a return to specie payments as soon
as the condition of the county and its
business interests will permit, they do
not believe in forced resumption in
fixing an arbitrary date. It' the bal
ance of trade i.nliiuus in our favor,
if silver should be put on perfect
equality with gold as to coinage, if the
Government would receive Tieasury
notes in payment of all dues, then re
sumption would be an easy matter
without any contraction of the cur
rency ami without any shock to the
business interests of the country.
There is no neoes.-ity for fixing a day
for resumption. Whenever thecoun
try gets ready it will tome naturally
without injury to any one. Wise
statesmanship will determine that
thing without any forced or unnatural

The Eastern Question
A cool and unhurried manner is
evidently the attempt of the English
Government in regard to the Eastern
difficulty. The reserves were to re
port for duty yesterday, and during
the present adjournment of Parlia
ment for the Eastern holidays, it ie
thought that preparations for war will
finished. England la evidently endeav
oring to " force Russia Into some
act like the eiezure of the Bosphorua
or Constantinople, bo as to unmuzzle
her guns and proceed to work." Eng
land shows no signs of retracting her
demand that no attention le paid to
the San Stefano treaty; and that ren
ders useless and impossible the meet
ing of the Congress. The Pall Mall
OftrcBeaconsfield's organ,gives the
following as England's programme to
whip Russia without a formal declara
tion of war:.
"We are strong in tho justice of our
diplomatic position," and can afford
to wait until our material streugth be
gins to tell in support of it by merely
passive pressure. If Kussia accedes to
our stipulations for the Congress, well
and good; it will be held, for we shall
begin to put our hands to the most ar
duous danger-fraught piece of inter
national work that lias been attempt
ed in Europe since the beginning of
the century. If llussia refuses to ac
cede to these terms there is no necessi
ty to declare war against her, and it is
to the last degree improbable that the
Government will re-sort to a declara
tion of war. It will le eufllcieut for
them to continue their armaments, to
occupy certain points of territory not
necessarily provocative of collision
with Russian forces, and keep Russia
in her present position, that is to say
w ith an unrecognized treaty in her
possession, but noother gain from the
war but what she can retain by actual
physical possession at a ruinously in
creasing cost, atiel there to let ht-r re
main until she returns to a sense of
her tlu ty to Europe."
This will hardly succeed, nor does
England think it will; but it will in
all probability force Russia to an act of
aggression that will make war inevita

In answer to a telegram signed by
W. J. Whitthorue, John Krierson, A.
S. Horsley, and others, asking Mr
Doak to i h is-i pone his lecture adver
tised for last night, the following char
acteristic letter was received. Mr
Doak didn't use any "Supernatural'
Soliciting" to keep us from publishing 1
this, though when he comes out we
may have to do some talking "sedemn
as sad bread," to persuade him from
characterizing us ns a "wretch unfit

conscience was touched. I fixed my
day at Clarksville on Friday, under
the impression that it was hangman's
day.M I thought the public would ap
prove the selection. Dr. Wright, who
is a good churchman, and on intimate
terms with the calendar I think
knows Father Time personally wrote
me thai I had stumbled on Good Fri
day. I thought nil Fridays were un
lucky, and 1 knew all lecturers were
unlucky, and I conceived that casting
an unlucky tiling upon an unlucky
day would be a qualified kind of "cop
pering" to speak profanely. Think of
my surprise. .My dearest friends were
in a church which I revcru as pro
foundly as I am ignorant of many of
its observances. I set the next Fri
day, ami made an appointment for
Thursday at Columbia. I said to my
self, I have now circumvented that
Friday. And I have unwittingly with
out taking off my shoes trespassed
on holy ground and alightitl on Holy
Thursday. I determined to destroy
myself, as a wretch unfit to live in a
christian community going alout to
trample upon sacred days; but I rind
that the season of hock bier is open,
ami I have solaced myself, and I shall
Ik; w ith you upon next hangman's
day, or any unlucky hour you may se
lect. Please correct tho impression
that my lecture is humorous. I swear
it is solemn as sad bread. I sometimes
do t.iat with a jK-ncil, but live gener
ations of theologian ancestors have
left me with a lace too solemn to
twist alnuit any thing humorous.
The American corps insist that I
am the cause of the Clarksville fire",
ami they swear you changed the elate
to get an engine down. It is my im
pression that the visit season is not
lar enough for the lecture season. I
accept it m that spirit.
Very truly, H. M. Doak.
P. S. If you show this to any
churchman "more looser" in his no
tions than John Friersen er Whit

What are the measures of relief the
country needs from Congress? The
repeal of the Resumption Act, the
equality of silver with gold in coinage,
the substitution of greenbacks for na
tional bank notes, a sufficiency of
sound currency Air all the business
and commercial wauls of the country.
There is no reason why the Govern
ment cannot make its own notes equal
to those of any National Bank, or
equal to gold and silver. If these
measures are adopt eel, as we have rea
son to believe they willl in a reasona
ble time, our country will enter iqoii
a carter of prosperity hitherto une
qualed. JJut we must exercise pru
deuce and patience iu getting these
me'iisures of relief. We may carry
things too lar and defeat the very
measures we so much de-sire. We
must let it lie1 known that we are in
favor of a sound currency, adequate
t all the wants of the country, and
h it we are opposed to a depreciated
currency. e must not attempt to
hurry matters too rapidly, but must
exercise patience. The national banks
cannot Ih gotten clearof immediately,
but this must be the work of time.
We need noother national currency
than greenbacks, and our local cur
rency should lie supplied by State in
stitutions. The repe-al of the law tax
ing the issues of State banks should,
and we trust will.Jbe repealed. This
is a matter of prime necessity, and
-iioulcl ever be kept m view, tiive us
these mcasurts and all will le well.

HfN tsvii.j.k, Al.A., April 1
lyncn law nas neen rampant in
Huntsville to-day. Scarcely anything
lias been talked ot on our streets since
Friday last but the dastardly and vil
lainous assassination of Geo. She"iiler-
gcr, one of our be'st citizens, by two
negroes, lien Evans and Fph Hall,
instigated by Mike White, a white
man, of bad and dangerous character,
who has lieen quite a bulldozer in
m uutsviiie lor many vears. Jte was
a butcher and the cattle and hogs
slaughtered by him for a long time
have been furnished to a great extent
by the two negroes mentioned. They
stole cattle promiscuously, and many
ot the tacts connected witn the thiev
ing were known Ui Mr. Shocnlergcr,
who was ui Kin the eve of having l hem
arrested. Hence the murder. White
hired the negroes to do the fiendish
eleed, which was committed at 3
o'clock on Friday morning last, by
waylaying and shooting Mr. S. as he
was starting from his home to the mar
ket, he also being m the butchering
Circumstances immediately led to
the detection and arrest of the ne
groes, who confessed tlie deeel and
told all alHiut it, giving YV bite as the
instigator and planner of the dastardly
act. White was arrested, und in his
confusion, told so many tales
that he at once convicted himself.
The parties were all lodged in jaiL
and the feeling among the citizen
has been growing more and mon? in
tense ever since, uutil to-day, when
it culminated iu the hanging ctf all
three to the same limb.
It was rumored on the streets, ear
ly this morning, that Judge Lynch
had hold his court in the country the
northern part of the county, and
over across the bonier to Tennessee, a
iMtrtion of the country where Mr.
Shocnltergor had many friends and
connection and that the dceiiou
was to hang them.
The people came in from every di
ect ion in droves, ami by o'clock.
the streets tf Huntsville, especially in
the luighboihoiMl of the jail, werelit-
raliy packed. At half-past 1 o'clock
the cry was raise! "I hey come," and
sure cnougn tney were coming. It
reminded one of the days of the late
Civil war. The cavalry, arrued. with
double-barrel shot-guns, came in with
perfect order and formed around the
Jail. Tlie citizens and the non-partic
ipating country eople, thousands or
whom were crowding the streets, fell
back and gave place to the armed
horsemen. A demand was made for
the keys, but they could not be found,
neither could the Sheriff. Being armed
with sledge hammers, crowbars, etc.,
they went at once to business, and it
was but the work of a tew minutes to
make an entrance into the jail-yard,
and then into the cells occupied by the
trembling murderers. They were at
once bound, led out, and carried down
the spring branch, about half a mile
from the jail, the thousands of curious
spectators following, and there the
three were hung to the same tree and
to the same limb..
The negroes reiterated, under the
gallows, the same tale they had first
told, but Mike White maintained his
innocence. There is not a shadow of
a doubt of his guilt among the peo
ple. The men were pronounceel dead'at
fifteen minutes after three, and the
bodies were cut down.
While under the gallows the priso
ners were asketl if they wished to say

except that he was innocent ami ready

and I shot the pistol." Turning to

Eph said he bad nothiug to say fur
ther than he had before stated.
Before swinging off White said:
"God be with my wife."
They were asked if they would
like to be prayed for. White said no,
but the negroes reeiuested Mr. Gordon
to pray for them, which he did in a
The Easirupt Law.
From the Courier-Journal.
Judge Ballard has epitomized the
complaints against the bankrupt law
in the remark "that whilst a bankrupt
system is understood to be based on
the ielea that the proierty of an in
solvent elebtor be-longs to his cretlitors,
and should be administered by them,
the central idea of the present bank
rupt law seems to Ite that every in
solvent should be discharged from his
debts." The grossest manifestation
of this central idea is in the facility
with which debtors lay hold of it to
relieve themselves of obligations they
might and would easily meet, except
for the temptation offered in the pro
visions of the law regarding voluntary
bankruptcy. Every newspaper in the
country, published in proximity to the
Federal courts, has daily a list of vetl
untary petitions in bankruptcy, an in
spection of which will reveal tlie fact
that at least four-fifths of tlie cases in
volve ordinary liabilities which most
anyone in a community must incur.
The vicissitudes of business and laltor
employment necessitate, or at Jcastoc
casion, the incurring of debt for ordi
.Tne credit system permeates every
department of business and labor, and
it necessarily rests on the gitod faith
and integrity of debtors. There is
not a retail grocery store on any cor
ner of a city or at any cross roads in
the country, nor is there a wholesale
business house supplying retail dealers
that does not trust the good faith of
its customers. It constantly happens
throughout the world of business that
men with no visible assets to meet
their liabilities, receive credit. The
exhibits in the bankrupt lists of men
with a few hundred dollars of debts
and no assets, are not at all excep
tional case's in the experience of life.
All over the country there are thou
sands of men in just such condition,
who are industriously working and
prudently saving to meet their, obli
gations and sustain their pcrse-nil
credit. Before men in this condition
the present bankrupt law is constant
ly thrusting the temptation of shirk
ing their just and honorable liabilities.
The majority do notyield to the temp
tation, ior if half of the bankrupt cases
furnished exhibits that would fjustify
everv man in similar condition in
availing himself of the easy benefits
of the bankrupt law, half the men of
this country would lie before the
courts. Many of the small bankrupts
who do avail themselves or these easy
benefits of the law simply yield to the
temptation of freeing themselves from
the effort necessary to pay their just
debts. Not onlv is all this demorahz
ing to the individual, and constantly
luring me'ii to moral wrong under the
guise of legal right, but it is unjust to
the great mass of fair-minded and
honorably-disposed debtors who re
solve to meet their obligations, but
who find their credit impaired by the
acts of others iniilrl v situated, anel
for whose conduct the-y are not re
In the Senate debate on tlie re
peal of the bankrupt law Judge Davis
suggested in opposition to the total re
peal of tlie law, the commercial ad
vantage of having a uniform system
of insolvent laws throughout thecoun
try, instead of the varioussvstcms that
spring up the matter is left to the sev
erol States. 1 hat is a matter of more
judicial convenience than of commer
cial necessity, the itammipt law nas
never been uniform in regard tj ex
emptions. J o perfect it in that re
spect for the Itcnefit of creditors would
Ite merely to pass the inconvienence
and hardship over to the debtors, who
m each state would lie subject to dual
systems of exemptions one under the
National, the other under the State
The large vote in the Senate in fa
vor ftf total repeal gives fair assurance
that the House by a corresjionding
majority will act favorably on the hill
1 l;e amendments suggested by Juel,
Ballard and some of the members of
Congress would doubtless improve
the present low. Hut even with such
amendments, making a total elimina
tionofthe bankruptcy features, the
danger of collusion by which the pur
pose of the law might lie itervcrted,
would still preserve that demoralizing
central idea that bankruptcy meant
discharge from just debts instead of
the surrender of the property of an in
solvent to his debtors.
So long as the credit system contin
ues, good faith must be the foundation
of business transactions quite as much
is legal liability. Whatever impairs
commence hurts business, and what
ever suggests to men s minds an easy
wav out of honest debts begets reek-
lessness and tempts to fraud.
Grant s recent letters expressing his
good feeling toward the Hayes Ad
ministration have so alarmed the
bloody-shirt Republicans, who pro
pose to mn him in l v80, that word has
been sent to I lysses to write no more
such gush. It was rathei incautious
m the ex-Admmistration to indorse
Mr. Hayes' Southern policy in view
of the future.

"Gath'i" Ideas cf thCcmicg L'aa Eea
drieM to lo Nominated on tie First
Writing from New York to the Philadel
The two items of interest I learned
at the launch last Saturday were from
Secretary Schurz, saying it was a for
tunate thing for public morals that old
Granny Howe had undertaken the
role of Balaam; and from Speaker
Cooper, expressing the belief that Don
Cameron's re-election was certain, un
less the Democrats got the Legislature.
The powers of good anel evil are yet
in their nrst fresh contention, Hayes
gaining in steadiness and anti-Hayes
dropping off very little in cussedness.
The latter latter now base all their
hopes on running Grant in 1880, but
while they coalesce on that hope the
multitude is antagonizing on Grant.
Dull as the times are, jieople feel that
they medicine us and behold in
Grant's return to power the circling
vultures flying lower. Every day,
while the politicians resolve on Grant,
the people, even those who apologized
for him, grow cooler. It is not Grant,
but (jirantism which repels; not the
wooden Trojan horse, but the thieves
in his belly. While Hayes stiffly re
sists the Grant puddle at Washington,
there is no great interest about his
successor. Everybody sees that he is
starving the politicians out, and that
is w hy the more hungry liand, led by
Conkiing and his pals, support Hunt
ington anel Gould.
ORANT AXD HENDRICKS.
By present indications, Thomas A.
Hendricks will be nominated on the
first ballot in 1880, unless tlie party or
gans and lenders sell out for cash in
hand aud Tilden wins cgain Tilden
and Hendricks may extinguish each
otherand Judge Thurman succeed. The
Vice President will almost be certain
to lie a Southerner, Toin Bayard hav
ing a chance, Gordon or Ransom the
probability. 1 1 this city Hendricks is
favorite of the Kelley wing, to which
Itelongs Jjieut. Gov. Dorsheimer, and
Itayard continues to be the pet of the
Belmont wing; the latter accounts
for Belmont personally arraigning
Hendricks on the money question.
There is no Eastern candidate but
McClellan and his possibilities are not
above the Vice Presieleney. The cer
tainty of Democratic success will make
the next nomination hard to pur
chase. It was sold to Tilden lefore be
cause it was thought not to Ite worth
much. The Presidency as a sure
thing, is not priceable: in a lottery it
can he. computed. There are O.UOOj
000 dollars to be spent by the Presi
tlent and party each year, of which
one-half is iu their absolute control.
Mr. Tilden would probably Ite as ol
noxious to the cormorants of his par
ty as Hayes is to the Republicans. Til
den, besides, has show n an apparent
disposition to treat with the uneasy
and spleen-tortured Conkiing, so that
many think that Tilden woiilel be a
part of Grantism.
The business men, whose interests
elect Presidents, oltserve one simple
fact that will turn 'them against the
Republican candidate in 1880; that is a
Democratic Senate and Congress.
They are too much in favor of slmrt
Congresses and Governmental concord
to elect a President who would have
constant opposition. Besides, there is
not a single respectable reason any
longer against a Democratic National
victory. Both parties have the same
general views and differences. Re
publican defeat would mean a final
farewell to the evils of civil war and
all its camp-followers. It is the only
path to pnlitie-al re-organization.
Probably in four years we shall see all
the spoilsmen and impracticablcs in
both parties acting together. Demo
cratic success means progress, ltecause
a change. Republican success means
no change, therefore no extrication.
The English as Figlitsrs.
It is strange that England has the
reputation of lieing a bully and a brag
gart. She is prudent, like sensible
men, she don't fight whenshe can
avoid it. She makes other people fight
her battles when she can. She fights
in terrible earnest when she must,
and England has waged more v ars
than any nation in Europe, and won
more imperishable renown for her sol
diers, and yet we hear lhe absurd
statement made every day that Eng
land is afraid to tight, that she is pru
dent to the verge of timidity. Who
can read the record of the Crimea, and
the patient endurance and heroic val
or of Knglisb. soldiers without honor
ing English courage. France fur
nished more men, but England did
as much fighting. The record of the
Napoleonic wars, the Wellington cam
paign on the Spanish peninsula, the
terrific fighting at Waterloo, show a
spirit very different from that com'
monly attributed to England.
lhat very mistake ol supposing
i-aigiaiui to oe a nation or shop-keep'
ers, too prudent, to light, given
to bluster ana biun, led Hussta into a
mistake in 18.4, which cost her dear
ly in men, money and territory.
Aicholas, before pressmg his designs
on Turkey, determined to see if Eng
land was earnest in resistance. It is
not very generally known, but it is
true, that the Czar landed in England
and spent some time there in disguise
studying the English character and
temper. He founel the business anel
manufacturing portion of the popula
tion averse to war, just as they are
now. Leaving in disguise, he came
to England as the Czar of Russia, and
during his visit confirmed his previ
ous impression. The result of that
visit and of the erroneous impression
formed was disastrous to Russia and
cost the Czar his life. He sank under
the mortification of defeat and his
successor was comitelled to accept a
humiliating peace, and yet the expe-
nenceot that disastrous war appears
to nave taugnt no jesson, and liussia
is again presuming niton the timidity
or a nation oi snot-neepers and mon
ey-fenders, and courting new disas
It is probable, however, that the
Czgr is not resitonsible for the attitude
or liussia. lie is a lover of iteace,
and a sentimental reformer, but the
iK'oiile of Russia, flushed with victo
ry, demand terms to which Euroie
cannot consent, and perhaps he can
not resist, it might cost nim nis
crown to yield to England.
