P. 8. We are now at home and
will close our correspondence from
abroad and talk of things present and
The State's Liability.
Since tho recent decision ot the
United States Supreme Court iu the
Memphis & Charleston railroad case it
is claimed iu some quarters that the
State is no longer bound to pay her
bonded debt. This U an error. That
case neither involved nor settled any
such question. The court did decide
that jere a statute authorizing a State
to be sued was in existence at the time
the State ebtered into acoutract, the
repeal of that statute by the State was
not an impairment of the obligation of
the contract within the meaning of the
constitution of the United Slates, which
says, "no State shall pass any law im
pairing tha obligation of contracts."
What bas this decision to do with th
question of the obligation of the State ?
The" State cannot be saaetan.J Lr
pay her debts like an Individual,' ! j
may owe them nevertheless I liighu
are one thing, remedies to enforce such
rights, other and very Uiuereul things.
Que 8 right may be unquestionable, yet
m certaui cases the remedy delective.
For instance, a man may owe you for
the very meat and bread which fed his
wife aud. children, but because the
statute of limitation bars your remedy
he may be able to defeat you, and you
cannot make him pay by suit. Does it
follow that his family did cot eat up
your meat and bread, cod he does not
owe for them T
The reason a State cannot be sued
on a contract like an individual is pure
ly technical. It is because the State is
so 4jjucl a sovereign jjs $o be able to
make and abolish courts at pleasure,
can fix the limits by its own statutes of
the jurisdiction of thoso courts, and
cannot be made amenable to their pro
cess without expressly giving its con
sent When therefore it repeals the
statute authorizing suits to be brought
against it, on contracts jl has made, it
simply destroys the remedy leaving
the oi'fi'Krfwji of fie contrast in force.
It is for the reason that the deetruiJ
fion of the remedy docs not destroy the
binding force cf Jho contract, that tne
court held tho repeal of the remcfy
was not unconstitutional and void.
Had the repeal "impaired the obliga-
tion of the contract, it could not have
stood a moment. M.

This is given as a bUggestion and is at

There is perhaps no christian institu
tion so seriously and dangerously threat
ened at this time as the Sabbath day.
It is not our je to discuss this in
stitution la its origin and design, but
simply to call attcutiou not only to thu
general berk of its observance as a sa
cred and holy day, but the growing ef
forts that are being iusiduou?ly put
forth iu high placet to do away and
disreirard the Sabbath altogether.
T in.e was in thu mi-Hp r an. nnrer davs
of this Republic when the government
accepietl the Sabbath as a divinely ap
pointed institution and respected its
observance on the first day of the week
so far as a government could do so, by
requiring its citizens and drawjert with
iu its gate to suspend the ordinary av
ocations and business transactions cf
life. Then the nation prospered iu all
its ways, and flourished for three-fourths
of a century beyond what is common
among the nations of the earth. We
do not wish to be understood as saying
that the desecration of the fcaLbh Is
the cause of the corruption, demondi
aaliou and national calamities which
have befulleu us in these latter days,
but that it is a natural out-growth aud
concomitant of thera, and adds a power
iul impetus to their rapid and ruinous
progress. The French as a nation vera
unstable iu their moral Lme and relig
ious beliefs as well as reckless in their
politlral sentjments before they disre
garded the divinely appoiuted Sabbath
yet this disregard of that institution on
ly hastened the bloody revolution which
plunged that unhappy people into
holesa state of anarchy arj ruin
i "Jietuember tt Sabbath Jay to kee
it holy," is a divine injunction that

frankly to recognize his earnestness,

Shortly after hi headquarter were eMail
lishp'l In North Missiisippi, an unknown
Klrlpplitig of apparently 15 or ll years join
ed one of his companies ns a recruit. His
conduct in camp was marked for its gentle
ii..., propriety, and uniform good nature.
While on duty he was noted for his vigilance,
activity, nnd tireless energy. These quali
ties soon made him a favorite with the o Di
cers and men of his company. Hut uTter
his first battle, in which he displayed the
highest courage of the soldier, "Little
Jimmy," ns he was familiarly called, beenme
the pet of the entire regiment. Though se
verely wounded, I.p refused to quit the field
until the enemy were beaten, fs'oine weeks
uftcr, when he returned from thu hospital,
he was welcomed back as brave men wel
come the bravo alone. Another fight soon
followed, and Little Jimmy covered himself
all over with glory by slaying a Yankee of
ficer in single combat, not, however, without
receiving u desperate wound which well
nigh proved fulul. It healed so slowly that
it was months before he could get permis
sion to report for duty. In the meantime,
it had been determined by the enemy "to
truth that rebel Forrest," and lor this purpose
a larger force was put in motion. When
Jimmy got back the. opposing columns were
in close proximity ,and maneuvering for posi
tion soon began. Forrest determined to at
tack, but the ground was such as to compel
him to detach a regiment to hold a certain
position ou his right think whilst he assailed
the enemy with his centre aud left. The
regiment thus detached was that to which
Jimmy belonged, was dismounted, placed
as infantry by the General in person, and
ordered to "hold the position as long as
there was a man alive." Forrest moved
off to direct the attack and had barely
put his trooos in motion when the
sagacious commander opposed to him
made a sudden onslaught upon the de
tached regiment with double their number.
The firing had already become so heavy that
Forrest rushed back, and just in time to see
his color-hearer fall and his men turning to
fly. The juncture was Indeed critical. Dash
ing into the mid.-t of his broken column he
cried out: "For shame, men, for shame I
Look yonder nt that boy ; he is the bravest
man of you all!" And sure enough, there
was Jimmy Wilson, who had rushed forward,
seized the shattered stuff, and, waving the
colors over his head, was shouting at the top
of hi voics the rallying cry. The position
was rehtkeu, held and the enemy beaten
on the entire field. But that heroic boy
who had stood alone by his. colors had
fallen almost riddled with bullets, and
was carried senseless from the spot where
he had stood. The Southern papers an

My own health was so broken as to wholly
nufit me for the field, and in January, 1865,
I was ordered to report to Gen. Dick Taylor
at Meridian, Miss., for service at one of the
judges of hit departmental military court
Such was the duty I was performing when
one sweet, balmy evening towards the latter
end of the month of Maroh, I accepted the in
vitation of a fellow officer to join him in a
walk. The spring had come with all its beauty
of foliage, flowers, green grass and love
songs of birds. It wat something on such a
day to step out from the grim thoughts of
war and with a congenial friend enjoy
once more the unpolluted smiles of nature.
We had strolled iuto the suburbs of the vil
lage near to the hospital when he asked me
If I had ever heard of the heroic little boy,
Jimmy Wilson. I replied that I bad read
the account of his death in the papers. "But
that wat a mistake," said be, "he did not
die, and live in that cabin yonder," point
ing U one of the rude hnt to often impro
vised by the soldiers. "I am delighted to
hear it," said I, "and nothing would give
me more pleasure than to testify ray respect
by making a call." Upon knocking
we were invited in by a young lady of
18 or 20 years pf age. My friend turning said,
"Colonel, let me introduce to yen little Jim
my Wilson," and laughing went aray. I
could scarcely believe my own tenses, and
taking her kindly by the hand she held out
to me, I taid : ''Are you indeed the little
Jimmy Wilson ot Forrest't command?"
With an air which unmistakably bespoke
the lady, she modestly answered, "that wat
my Ui3it tir, whilst I wat in (he army." My
curiosty aud sympathetio interest were
keenly awakened, aud her invitation to be
seated wat promptly accepted. We con
versed fur nearly an hour, and during the
time I observed her with all the scrutiny
which politeness permitted. She was young,

beauty, simple, soft and amiable, with only
negative traits of character, and in this at a .

was pure enough and strong enough to raise
two beings entirely above and beyond the
