TEXAS PACIFIC RAILROAD.
Speech of Hon. W. C. Whitthorne.
Mi:. Whitthornk. Mr. Sieaker,
but for the remarks recentlv made up
on this floor by the gentleman from
Alabama I Jir. Jlerliertl ttton the Tex
as Pacific It-iilroad, in which hu re
ferred to a prominent gentleman of
my State, and who is an honored and
distinguished constituent of mine, I
would not have sought tlie floor iitxin
this occasion. While it is true that
the reference is made in terms of jer
sonal respect, yet the impression is
made tnat tins eminent anil patriotic
son of tlie South has lent the use of
his name aud talenU toaJjersonal proj
ect which is at war with the liest
interests not only of the South, but of
the entire country.
Now, sir, this impression is unjust:
and while upon the propriety, expe
diency, and constitutionality of this
measure tbe lest and mast patriotic
mind of the nation may differ, yet
for tioveruor John C Jlrown, of Ten
nessee, whom I have knotm from the
days of our young manhood, and who
is the gentleman referred to, I may le
allowed to say that from a most inti
mate personal knowledge of him, run
ning back for a period of thirty vears.
having seen him in the various posi
tion which he has occupied by the
confidence and affection of the people
who knew hitu mi1 in tjajly life, that
both as a soldier and statesman ha lias
deservedly won the highest attainable
rank a IJayard as a soldier, a patriot
as a statesman, and is incapable of an
act of infidelity to the section ami
eopie with whom and whose fate he
las been and is now so closely identi
fied. When the recent t'lvJl iionflict was
over, lie was honored by his iaj.jVP
State in lieing selected as its chief
magistrate. Hardly had he closet I his
official term liefore he was urged to
accept the Htsitioii now held by him
a Vfc'epresident of the Texas Pacific
llailroad. mi opportunities in his
profession and th;rw;se honorably
mil sttccesstuiiy to wx wcuUh and
fortune seldom ojetied to others; wjih
the avenues of inimical advancement
mid promotion at Ins command, those
who desired his aid in the prosecution
of the Texas Pacific Kailroad urged
that in this way lie could serve his
country and assist in reviving the fall
en fortunes of the South. All of his
sympathies were with the eople in
whose cause be hail sacrificed bis pri
vate fortunes and for which he Isjars
upon his person honorable scars.
No, Mr. Speaker, the impression
made, or bouirht to be made, that he
has lent himseif to any project at war I
vtllil tne i cs i uiu'ii'Kia i inu miiiiu,
does Governor Ilrown great injustice.
No again, sir; it may lie that he is
mistaken in his judgment, but Gov.
ernor Itrown lielieves firmly anil hon
estly that the immense railroad inter
ests of the South, as well as its great
industries and commercial interest-,
together with the necessity for outlets,
of emigration to our j'omiy. poor, anil
energetic jxipulation, demand that this
great national work shall lie comple
ted. In this faith and belief a very
large majority of the people of the
South agree with him, aud it is with
such belief and faith that he litis lent
his time, talents, and energies to the
prosecution of the great work so freely
criticised by tha gcittjffnail from Ala
bama. Mr. Hk.rhkrt, (interrupting.) Mr.
Speaker, 1 fully concur in all the gen
tleman has said in relation to Gover
nor llrowu. I ay further that 1 fully
iK-heve be and the other irentlemen
from the South whom I pained in mv
speech are as honest in advocating as
I am in opjiosing this bill. If any
thing 1 have said can be construed.
which 1 du not think it can, Into a re
flection on their patriotism, I desire
here publicly to itisjaiui any such
intention; nothing wai farther frpm
Mr. Whitthornk. It has not been
mv purpose at any time to address the
House upon the subject of the Pacific
Uailroad prior to the consideration of
the bill by tne jiouse, nut i tieem uus
an appropriate occasion to say that.
trained in the school of "thentrlct con
structionists." I have never favored
special or class legislation or the grant
ing of aid by the Government, either
in inoney, land or credit, either to in
dividuals or corjiorations; and In the
departure from thi rule by the States
aud Natioual Government, in wy
judgment, is to lie found the basis of
many or tne just complaints of tbe
jieople, ana to wnien is to be aseribed
the eause of many of the ills that now
afliiot the people. But, sir, the con
sideration and determination of the
Texas and Pacific Kauroad bill, as re
lorted by my colleague from the sixth
congressional district of Tennessee.
Mr. House, surrounds and presents
tne constitutional question involved
with fewer embarrassments than any
previous bill, in thiR: that he happily
relieves it of entangling alliances and
local projects which heretofore made
it liable to many of the objections
urged by tnegenuemau from Alabama.
Now, sir, the bill to which I refer
presents the proposition entirely as a
national one; national in its require
ments, national in the difficulties to
be overcome, and national in its ob
jects. In these several aspects tbe bill
admi's of enlarged argument, the pre
sentation of which at the present time
would be inappropriate; but I miy be
allowed to say to gentlemen who have
hitherto opposed this measure and
particularly I address myself to my
Western l)eiuocratic friends whose
people have suffered mucU from the
nionojwly of the Union Pacific Rail
road and their associates that I leg
they will look at the present bill, and
to reflect that its office, as now inten
ded, is to build a road national in its
character and purposes, aud which, at
all times recoguizmg the authority of
the Government, is subject to the leg
islative control of the people, and in
this way leeomes In their hands the
means of protection against existing
moniwlies and future combinations
to control the industry, trade, and
enmmerce of the country.
It is this last consideration, Mr.
Sieaker, that, in a very large degree,
has induced me to give my support to
the proiwsed bill. It has been stated
that the owners of the corporation
known as the Central Pacific are the
carporators of the road now seeking to
thwart the prosecution and building
of the Texas Pacific road. I lielieve it
to le true, and, if true, it is apparent
that the object of these parties is to
perpetuate and increase the power of
one of the most gigantic and merci
less monopolies ever legislated into
Another consideration I beg leave to
present to my friends. Knowing as
they do that enple move on isother
mal lines, that while it is, andhas been
the jmlicy of the (Joverement to ex
tend lines of railroad across tlie conti
nent from ocean to ocean, on northern
lines, thus giving to the jieople on
these lines all the advantages of emi
gration, it is a denial of justice and be
comes an act of oppression to tbe peo
ple of the South if you fail to give
them the same facilities of wealth and
prosperity you have extended or may
extend to others in this regard.
Promising myself that ujon a future
occasion I will attempt to elaborate
and present more fully these as well
as otlier reasons that induced me to
supjiort the bill of my colleague, I
have to thank the House for its pres
Howto Learn to Swim.
Every boy and girl should learn to
swim. A writer in the American Ar-i-ictilttifixt
offers the following sugges
tions, by oliecieuce to which the art
of swimming may lie readily acquir
ed: When I was a boy I learned to
swim by means of a swimming-board.
This is "the safest method possible. If
corks are used they may slip from
around the breast down beneath the
IkmIv, throwing the head lielow the
surface, and putting the wearer in
danger of drowning.
Some country boys get two bladders
and then tie them together with a
sport cord, and uao thexe an supports.
They are the most dangerous thiugu
possible for a boy to have.
The board is perfectly safe, and one
may learn to swim in a very short time
by using one. It should le over four
feet long, over a foot wide and two in
ches thick, white pine or cedar.
To use it, a boy wades into the wa
ter up to his shoulders, then taking
hold of the end of tlie bqard he push
es it before him towards the bank,
and not into deeper water springs
forward with his feet and throws him
self flat upon tlie water.
The movement carries him along a
few feet. He then draws up both his
legs at the same time, keeping the
kpees as far apart as possible and then
strike out With, both feet not straight
backward, but sUbiwayci, just 8 a f roj
The stroke is made slowly and Is re
peated again, drawing up the legs and
steadily. The board keeps the head
above water. When the leg stroke is
learned, one hand is taken from the
board and the stroke learned, or the
chain may lie rested on the board,
while the stroke s Ken with both
This isa very good plan, as It compel
the swimmer to keep his hands under
the water, which he should always do.
Uy-and-by the board may Ik? pushed
ahead, and the young swimmer may
swim after it, and always keeping it
within reach. When a number of
ttoys fcQ K, wim thpy should always
have two or three Ijoafds VitU them
for use of any accident.

We hate to have a lawyer tlie. Not
that we think any other class of peo

like sin wheu he Vrdi alve, and who

The True Story of the Assassina
As Told for the First Time by the
Manager of the Theater.
Baltimore Special to Cincinnati Enquirer.
The impression has long prevailed
that Mr. John T. Ford, who was Man
ager of Ford's Theater at the time the
liooth-Lincoln assassination occurred,
was familiar with facts in connection
with the matter that had never ap
iieared in print, and he was approach
ed by a Onzctte reporter and asked if
such M as the case Mr. t oru remarked
that he had frequently been requested
to give expressions to his views on the
subject, however, ensued, the sub
stance of which, with Mr. Ford's per
mission, we print. It throws some
light on the great tragedy. Mr. Ford
John Wilkes Booth was trained
from earliest infancy to consider the
almost deified assassin Brutus just as
Shakspeare immortalized him. His
father was named "Junius Brutus."
His brother is now the bearer of that
surname, l he great Jiootn frequently
apjteareil in the play of "Julius Utesar,"
and not later than ini4 three ot his
seas acted the three leading characteis
of the play to an audience that p
plauded the sentiments of "Brutus"
to tbe echo.
Now trace the assassination of Lin
coln: On the morning of April 14,
lStio. liooth, who had conspired for
six months previous to abduct l'resi
dent Lincoln and convey him a pris
oner to the South, was the last guest
at breakfast at the National Hotel in
Washington. The surrentler at Appo
mattox had ended all chance for niin
to carry out his original conspiracy.
He left the hotel after 1 1 o'clock that
morning, and walked up sixth street
to H, and stopjied at the Surratt
House, where he met the widow who
kept it returning from the religious
service of Good Friday, aud then in
the act of going to her former country
place the vehicle to convey her al
ready at the door to collect .some
money due her, so as to pay what was
tlue by her to the Calvert estate.
Booth, when informed of her in
tended visit, requested her to get some
articles belonging to him that he had
left at the country tavern, and then,
biddim; her adieu, he walked tip II
street to Tenth and down Tenth to the
When he reached there it was about,
or proliably a little later than twelve
o'clock, midday. There he heard for
the first time that lioth President .Lin
coln and General Grant were to visit
the theater that night. The private
Ikx was in process of decoration. The
White House messenger nan oeen
there an hour before to secure its use.
I lielieve. and all reliable written or
oral testimony confirms that U-lief,
that then and there the terrible thought
of the assassination first suggested
itself. It came like this: "If I failed
to serve the South in my conspiracy
to abduct, I can now lie her Brutus."
This thouirht fastened on his brain,
ami led him to go from the theater to
ward the Kirkwood House to have a
conference with some of his old con
spirators. John Surratt was away.
O'liaughlin was in Baltimore, anil
Arnold was in a sutler's store at rort
ress Monroe. They knew the abduc

In urdur to demonstrate that his
brain was turned by the poetic and
dramatic glamour which transmitted
the story of the Boman assassination,
said Mrl Ford, it is but just to describe
him at this time: In lierson he was
remarkably handsome, with a face of
singular manly lieauty, m perfect
bealth, less than twenty-six years
ot aye, and almost idolized hy his
friend. A an actor he could earn at
leust ten thousand dollars per annum.
He was so iHipular in Boston that dur

hundreds of ladies have waited to see
him leave the stage to go to his hotel.
The facts and opinions will, I think,
show the great danger of glorifying
assassination under any circumstances.

Last winter tuw remarkable man
was engaged to teadi the Harlansve
district school. He did not know a
soul in the villace. bat the school tms
tees, knowing that he had conducted
a male department of a Frankfort
school with eminent success, engaged
him at a large salary. The Harlans
ville scholars included the youth of
both sexes, and were, for the most
part, orderly and industrious.- There
was. however, one srirl In the fcehool
who was probably the most mischiev
and reckless of her sex. There is no
doubt that Miss Alice, as she was gen
erally called, was a very pretty girl,
and no one claimed that she was guil
ty of any serious crimes. Still, she
was never out of mischief, and would
plan and execute enterprises mini
which the averajre boy would shrink

was admirably adapted to be teased.

ties to the utmost. She iiegan ner

and space would fail were it attempt
ed to catalogue the various devices by
which she plagued the patient teacher,
It was not long, however, before he
discovered that the demure Miss Alice
was at the bottom of all tlie mischief
in school, though she was too astute
to permit herself to be detected in any
overt act. One of her favorite meth
ods of harrassing the good teacher was
lo'pretend to an ardent admiration for
him. She woultl constantly go to his
desk on the pretext of asking his help
in her lessons, and while he was la-
lioriotisly explaining how this sum
should lie done, or how that verb
should lie parsed, she would stand by
his side gazing at him with an air til
hopeless and passionate attachment
which tilled the scholars with the
wildest delight. Then, too, she would
constantly manage to touch, with aji-
Iiarent unconsciousness, the teacher's
land or shoulder, or would lean over
him so that her breath would fan his
sparse and delicate hair. The uneasi
ness betrayed by the innocent man in
these circumstances was excessively
ludicrous, ami delighted the naughty
girl and her fellow-pupils unspeaka'
The day came, however, when Miss
Alice, grown careless by long impuni
ty, was detected in the act of lirinir at
another girl with a Itcan-shooter.
Ibis was a crime for which the inex
orable penalty was "rulering." The
teacher would have given much to
avoid the necessity of "rulering" a
girl, but if he suffered Miss Alice's of
fense to pass without punishment be
knew that he would be accused of un
fairness, and that the discipline of the
school would lie destroyed. With a
heavy heart he called her up for pun
ishment, and ordered her to hold out
her hand. She held It out smilinirly
mid tiiifliticliiiiirl v. mid when the limi-
lshment was ended she dehlierately 1
threw her arms around the teacher s
neck and kissed him. "I always re
turn a kiss for a blow," she explained,
as soon as the teacher recovered breath
and consciousness' "for mother always
taught mo no." Having said this, she
went calmly back to her seat, and the I
teacher, wishing that the earth would
ojien ami hide him, tried to- calm .his
beating heart by studying history trom
a spelling book held upside down.
1 he cup of lus misery was by no
means full. There was a rule in school
that whoever climbed the fence into
the next yard and stole apples from
Deacon Watkms' apple-tree should ie
flogged. The teMher, in order to
check, tMe gniwth of tlU terrible vice,
nan uiiincuy auuouiiccu tuai uus
rule would be inexorably enforced, no
matter who might be the culprit or
what defense might be offered. Of
course, it was never for a moment
imagined that any girl could climb a
fence and an apple tree, and hence the
teacher was horrified to discover, as
he approached the sehwi-rinA one
iiui iiiiigg, 44,oa . . v. vij w
liinb of the apple-tree and tossing np-
Eles to the rest of the scholars. When
e reflected that he was pledged to in
flict upon her the severest punishment
known to the school code, his knees
smote together and he felt that death
would be sweet and welcome.
It was the custom to flog culprits at
the morninar recess, and when the
teacher notifled Miss. Alice that he
should remain in the school-room dur
ing recess, the other scholars chuckled
with glee, and the girl herself was
seen to blush. When leeess came,
and the guilty girl was left alone with
the teacher, the excitement of the
play ground was immense, and the
large boys bet immense quantities of
torn nml nl:i te-iienrlls in favor of or
against the probability that Mis Alice
woiia oe in rue i, punisneu. une en
terprising hoy climbed the lightning
rod and looked In at the window, it
is on his evidence that the remainder
of the story rests.
"He never even oltered to lick her,"
testified the disappointed lioy. "He
just called her up and said, says he,
Alice, i d a named signi soqnvr mart
ry you than lick you.' Then says Al
ice: 'It is about the same thing, any
how, so if you say marry, I'm with
you.' Then the old man, he kissed
her, and that's how it ended. There
ain't no fairness in no teacher. He
wouldn't have let a boy off that way,
Doubtless the precise- laiy-niagp af
the teanjier and Pf Alice were
not correctly rejiorted, but the main
features of the boy's evidence were un
doubtedly true. The teacher was
married nut week, and has since rc
jR'Htedly said that mathematics are all
very well, but that man needs to cul
tivate his emotional nature and to de
velop his domestic affections. His ro
mance certainly came to him late, and
iu an unexiiected way, but those who
have seen his young wife thhH tu.at

Sapid Increase of Kestil Disorders Sera

New York Herald.
Within the i-ast few years the steady
increase in tbe number of commit'
ments to hospitals and asylums for
mental diseases has attracted general
attention. An examination of the
yearly reports of the principal asylums
of the country show that during the
past five years or more there lias been
a pretty regular increase In the ratio
of insane persons to the population,
and, as stated in the report for 1877 of
the Willard Asylum for the insane,
"that the increase is out of proiHirtion
to that of population, and seems to l-e
confined to the dependent and middle
In England and Wales the ratio of hi'
sane to the jxipulation is 1 to .T73; in
Massachusetts 1 to ew lork,
to 5S7; Illinois, 1 to NtHi, and Iowa, 1
to 1,101. This shows that the density
of population has a more or less pre
disposing ellect, producing, as it de
cidedly does, a deteriorating influence
on the human race, morally and phys
ically. The increase iu the number of
insane in the State of New York for
the juist quarter of a century is over
one hundred per cent., and, according
to experts in mental diseases, this in-
c reuse is not confined to any particu
lar sections ofthe State, but is more or

reader of the daily papers for the past
few years can fail to have lieen im
pressed with the great increase of re

hue much ot this is directly tlue to
tbe rapid Increase of the population of
New 1 ork anl neighboring cities.
there must be other causes for the dis
ease at work. lucrease of lMipulation
brings with it overcrowding, disease-
producing surroundings, bad sanitary
arrangements, which, by lowering the
tone of tbe people, both in a moral as
well as a physical !iint of view, di
rectly predisjmses the very jioor and
middling classes to mental disease.
Dr. 1 tike, a well-known Ixindon alien
ist, has written a work under the title
of "Insanity in Ancient and Modern
Life." In this he claliorately investi
gates the causes of men f id
diseases in (treat Britain, where the
increase of lunatics has Ix-eii enor
mously large during the past half cen
tury. After a careful examination of
all the statistics, showing that the
numlier of insane iieople confined in
asylums in Khgland and Scotland at
the present time reaches iHi,i.ii, Dr.
Tuke ccncludes that the principal cau
ses of mental diseases at the present
time are: first, intoxication, inclu
ding the action of alcohol and allied
stimulants, not only in the individu
als taking them to excess, but iqion
his or her offsprings, whose weakness
produces degeneracy iu the succeeding
generation; second, that defective
nourishment, leading as it does to ex
haustion and malnutrition of the ner
vous centers, causes degeneracy of the
race, the evidence of which can lie
seen in the large, insufficiently fed
populations, closely allied to this Dr.
Tuke considers bad sanitary arrange
ments : and overcrowding in luthv
dwellings. Fnder the third class of
causes lie considers moral influences,
Mmrtly mixed in character, which ex
cite or depress the emotions profound
ly, as a dissolute life, depraved habits,
domestic sorrow or misery, commer
cial fpectilatinhs, losses, religious ex
citement, disappointments in love and
general overwork." I'nderthe fourth
and last head is considered intellectual
tram as a cause of insaimv. which he
holds tq lie the least frequent of all
t-aiitacs if examined alone.
