lhat "evey time ho opens lilt tneath

litm a fow day ago and heard him
miiko a short speech which, alto
gether, will do to go on record to hi
credit. It was on the occasion of n
visit to Mr. Davis by (be Leo Bencv-
lent Association of this city, and was
iimdo in response to nn address by
Major W. T. Walthall, president of
tho association, In Introducing too

has been for somo time, residing at
"Beauvolr," Miss., thq residence of
Mm. Sarah A. Dorsey, on the (iulf
coast, between this city and Now Or-
leans, whero ho Is engaged In prepar
ing, with the assistance of Major
W. T. Walthall, his "Memoirs," soon
to ho puhlished by the Applctoas.

tliu association tiiadohls address, to
which Mr. Davis replied at follows:
Mr. Chairman and Members of tho

I am deeply scuslhlo of tho honor

On a recent htisines trip to Hous

a well known merchant of this city,
who told jMory after story of early
days In Texas. Oho struck mi as

flue hum a rnra (win 111 those days.
Having asked the price, he said he
would take it, iiiid tho president
would call around and pay for It. I
loll proud or my solo uud callud the
attention of the boss lo It as soon as
ho came in.
"Did you get the money?' ho asked
No, but President Houston Is com;

" No, sir.'
"Theu you are a fool. Now, sir
go straight lo Iho president's kitnhrii
and bring me that limn, unless Tom
will say it shall bo paid for.'
I started nil", very much crostfallnu,
and tint likluir the Job bofore 1110. Uut
I resolutely walked into the presi
dent's kitchen. Tom was there. I
saw my hum lying there, with 11 few
dices out of It, and. seizing It, told
Tom unless he would umlerluko to
see that the money was paid, 1 must
lake it back.
"Tom englluted awhile, and then
said: 'Young man, tuko hack your
meat. The glueral is a mighty good
master, but mighty pom- paymaster,
and Idoii'tkeer lo iiivolvlluto myself

"This wn enough for mo. I left

Hell your mauler I am under great

Tho royal and imperial princes of

can, tliey pass inroiigii lire iiinuou-

means nothing moro for the nation
than tho gorgeous pageant of a ro)ol

ous, lliero are now two imperial
princes in Europe toward- whom all
eyes aro turned, and upon whose ca
pacity Iho lives of thousands of peo
ple, the fate of two nations, thepcaco
of Ihe world may depend. Tlioe
aro the brothers of tho Emperor of
llusslu iho Grand Duke Nicholus,
commander-in-chief of the Danube
army, anil Michael, commanding the
urmy lu Asia Minor.
The Grand Duko; Nicholas, tip to

resentative of ihoavcrago type of an
inipcriul prince ; that Is to say, lie
his been very little tutked about, lie
Inherited from hi fattier, tho Empe
ror Nicholas I., a line stature, hand
some features, and a predilection for
military drill, and his chief occupa
tion for years was courting pretty
women uud reviewing soldiers. The
resemblauco between him and his fa
ther ceases, however, in externals
Ho hss neither tho powerful Intellect
nor the stubborn, undaunted will and
merciless purpose of tho latter. He
has provod himself 10 possess great
personal bravery, and Is Impetuous,
daring uud frank, lla Is, in rhort, a
good deal of a Cossack ; rather fierce
when angered, but good at heart, uud
regretting a violent action the mo
ment alter it hits been committed.
He is curl uud somewhat distant lu
his demeanor towards his suhordl
name, but entirely just and Impartial,
and he hales ull intrigues aud under
build doing. Thcso qualities havo
won lor blui tho universal re-peel ol
tho olllcers and or tho troops form
ing the military district of St. Peters
burg, which he has long commanded-
Moreover, ho is uu excellent judge ul
horseflesh, and possesses In thu prov
loco of Veronege, in the south of
Itusslu. tho finest stud of t rollers in
thu empire. As inspector-general or
the whole ltussluu cavalry he has
douo much towards liellnriug thu
mount of tho army. All ltussluu ol
llcers agree that he would make n
Ident of the committee for reorgani
sation and Instruction of the army,
he look a part In the late military re-
lorm In Russia uot a prominent one,
Indeed of that he was scarcely
thought capable hut In earnest sup
port of tho reformatory schemes ol
the Wsr Minister Milullu.
There is n great contrast between
tho Grand Duke Nicholas and his
brother Michael, tho governor general
of the Caucasus and commander-in-
chief of the Ilussiaii army In Asia
Minor. Tho former is a soldier, tho
latter a man of the world, lu socl
oty Michael is preferred to his broth
or. Ho is much bettor educated, has
finer manners and possesses much
more genial Information than most
of iho princes or the Russian iiitpe
rial hotiso. Ho has made a special
study or Iho artillery, and was pro
nouiiced by the best specialists to be
thoroughly competent for tho post of
inspector-general of that arm of the
service, whicli he occupied befuro his
nomination 10 tho Caucasus, whlcl
look place about leu years ago. As
govcrof this uowly conquered prov
luce, ho succeeded by his tact anil
good manners In winning tho syinpn
ililcs of the half-savage and scarcely
subdued Teherkcso nobility of the
country. As a military man, how
ever, ho has had no occasion or dls
plalng any particular talent or nbll
Ity. Indeed, thero Is one trait in hi
character which ill AInu commanding
general. This is a wcukucss of will
which has become proverbial alTillis.
The general accepted opinion ha
long been that tho real ruler of the
Caucasus was tint the Grand Duke,
but his wife, Iho Grand Duchess Olga

Uadcn, whom ho married leu years
ago, aud who not only has a stronger
will, but u less amiable character than
Such arc Ihe two men who are now
called upon to play so prominent 11
part lu Ihe history or their country.
Neither of tluiiu can be called a niuu
of genius, or oren of extraordinary

PAIN in the rifjht side.nnilcr the edge

sometimes the pain is in the left side ;
the patient isrnrcly nblc to lie on the left
side; sometimes the pntn is felt under
the shoulder-blade, n1 it frequently
extends to the top of the shoulder, nnd
is sometimes mistaken for n rheuma
tism in the arm. The stomach is nflcct-
cd with loss of appetite and sicklies. 5
the bowels in general nrc costive,
sometimes alternative with lax ; tlie
head is troubled with pain, accompan
ied with a dull, heavy sensation in the
back part. There is generally a con
siderable loss of memory, accompan
ied with a painful sensation of having
left undone something which ought to
have been done. A slight, dry cough
is sometimes nn attendant. The pa
tient complains of weariness nnd de
bility ; he is easily startled, his feet are
cold or burning, and he compln'msofa
prickly sensation of the skin ; his spir
its are low ; and although he is satis
fied that exercise would lie Dcnclicinl
to him, yet he can scarcely summon
up fortitude enough to try it. In fact,
