SHERIDAN TO NEW ORLEANS.
TItl MKANINQ OF THE NEW ARMY ASSIQJI
MENT StlKRIDAK's INSTRUCTIONS IN THE
ttANDH OP GEN. SHERMAN.
A Washington special to the Cincinnati
Commercial of the 29th inst. gives the latest
o 03 dal disclosures in regard to the assign
aaent of Gen. P. H. Sheridan to Ner Or
leans: The statement yesterday of Gen
Sheridan to a newspaper representative in
Chicago that he knew nothing of any pres
ent intention of ordering him to New Or
leans, was correct, and the1 statements
in these dispatches, which Gen. Sheridan
Beemed to have denied, were also correct,
'with one exception. Gen. Sheridan is to go
to New Orleans, but the orders directing
him to proceed there were not, as was
stated, sent by telegraph. Tbey havo
been tent by mail to Gen. Sheri
dan, through Gen. Sherman by the
way of St. Louis, and should reach Oen.
Sheridan to-morrow. All that Sheridan
could have known on Saturday was what
was communicated to bim in a brief dis
patch from the war department on Saturday,
which advised him that confidential instruc
tions bad been seat to him through the
general ot the army, at St. 'Louis,
ind that he was to follow tlfee in
structions to the very letter. There is
no possible doubt as tö the correctness ot
this information, as It is derived from tbo
highest official sources. The president, on
Friday last, promised certain Southern re
publicans that, la view of possible contin
gencies. Gen. Sheridan should be ordere 1
to New Orleans, with Instructions to ar
rivo there not much after tbo beginning of
the new year. This promise of
the president ' was fulfilled on
Saturday, when the confidential
instructions were mailed to Gon. Sheridan
through Gen. Sherman, at St. Louis. The
text ot the instructions is, of course, of an
entirely personal and confidential nature,
bat it is known that they direct Gen. Sheri
dan, immediately and without delay, to
tree himself from all other business, and to
proceed forthwith to the South and New
Orleans, for the general purposes of obser
vation and inspection, and when be
arrives there he is to implicitly
follow the private instructions which the
general of the army will communicate to
him. It is understood that theses-private in
scructions at any time empower Gon. Sheri
dan, in his discretion, to take full command
both of the -land and naval forces in Louisi
ana and the South. The reason which has
induced the president to designate Oen.
Sheridan for this duty is contained in those
a man oovkrnmext official:
"We want Gen. Sheridan there, so that it
there is any necessity, and the wires should
be cut, there will be a man of pluck and
energy in the South who can be relied on."
Tho most serious objection which has been
urged against Emory is his lack of self-reliance,
and his repeated calls upon the
president dur'ng the Penn revo
lution for instructions as to the
minutest details ot local .. administrative
action. It is stated upon authority that the
only reason which can now induce a with
drawal of tbe letter orderiug Sheridan South
is tho unexpected publicity already given to
the fact that he was to be ordered there. One
of the reasons which has induced the presi
dent not to assign Gen. Terry to command
in Louisiana is tbe health of that officer.
The instructions of Gen. Sheridan, it is un
derstood, direct him to acquaint himself with
the actual condition of affairs in Arkansas,
Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Texas,
but to make Louisiana his present objective
point. On arriving at New Orleans he is to
cont8r with Major Merrill 'upon the actual
conditiou of affairs In Louisiana outside ot
the city of New Orleans. Major Merrill is
the officer who arrested the perpetrators of
the Cou6hatta massacre, and has a high rep
utation for energy, courage and fidelity
among military men here. An officer of the
government, a military man of high stand
ing, says that Merrill, thus far, has been
the only military man in the South who
has been able to apprehend tbe situation.
The nature of Gen. Sheridan's mission is
similar to that of Gen. Grant's In 18Ö8, with
tbe exception that Grant was designated to
discover why there is not prosperity in the
South, while Sheridan is to learn why there
is not peace, it is due to uen. Sheridan to
eay that while tbe subject of such a general
political mission wa3 some time since sug
gested to bim. be earnest I v protested
against being designated to any such po
sition, and when last here urged the
attorney-general that if ha carod anything
for bim, to use his influence not to have him
asct South. It seems to be the settled opin
ion here on tbe part of some government
oQloers that trouble is to be apprehended in
Louisiana, and for this reason it has been
thought that tbe experience of Sheridan in
Aew Orleans, m 1S6U will be valuable now.
Sheridan is to go there in tbe capacity ot
lieutenant general, with the duplication of
tbe orders issued to Gen. Emory in Septem
ber last, during the Penn revolution, so that
in the event of an outbreak of hostilities.
there v in ba no need for any further com-J
municaiion witn Washington.

TBE ANSWER OF THEODORE TILTON TO THE
ARTICLE OF MR. REECHKR IN THE CHRIS
TIAN CNION A STINOINQ DENIAL OF THE
The New York Sun of the 26th Inst, gives
the following card from Theodore Tilton
addressed to the public concerning two
trials, tbe one civil and the other criminal,
involving his controversy with the Rev.
Henry Ward Beecher:
Mr. Baecber's pronunclamento in the
Christian Union oi this week requires me to
reply as follows:
I. I have charged the Rev. Henry
Ward Beecber with seduction and
adultery. Thepe . charges I have
already proved to the . full belief
of three quartets of the people of tbisnation,
including almost unanimously the legal
profession, who, above all other classes, are
most competent to weigh evidence. I now
wait to repeat and solemnize this proof in a
court of law. To this end two actions are
pending in tho City Court of Brooklyn.
Tnese are, first, a civil suit instituted by me
against Mr. Beecher; . second, a criminal
indictment procured by Mr. Beecher agaiust
me. The first ot thrse causes, namely, miDe
against him, is continually thwarted by his
strange and unexampled' demand
for a catalogue of the particular dates and
places at which he committed his acts
of adultery. What is the practical effort
of this demand? The sexual lntttnacy be
tween Mr. Beecher and Mrs. Tilton" ex
tended (according to their own account of it)
from the tall of 1KGS, tbroueh the whole of
186!, into tbe spring of 1870, overlapping
three successive years; and yet Mr. Brecher,
while publicly asking for what he calls the
fullest investigation reqnests me to dwarf
and Rhrivel my proof ot this prolonged crim
inality to two particular days, namelv, Oc
tober 10 and 17, 1863; a limitation which bis
counsel era willing to enlarge so as to in
clude an entire autumnal month, during
most ol which Mr. Beecher was absent from
Brooklyn, sheltered in a ?afo alibi beyond an
opportunity from crime. It H an affront to
ethics and equity, and a miracle impossible,
to limit Mr. Batcher's 14 months of adultery
to two days.
VNWILLINO TO APPEAR IN A FARCE.
Accordingly I gave the public due notice
that so far as the civil case was concerned
(which is the only one controlled by me) I
shall go into court on tbe first day when I
am permitted to carry all my evidence with
me, but never while I must leave nine-tenths
of this evidence outside the door. In other
words, to try Mr. Beecher for adultery, with
the adnlterv carefully forbidden to be
proved, is a farce at which I am not harle
quin enough to play in these sad days.
II. Meanwhile, since Mr.Beecher isseeking
tobaflle my case against bim, I challenge him
to end this by-plsy of strife over a bill of
particulars by calling up bis case against
me. This he has power to do at any mo
ment. What is this case? Oil tbe 3d oi
October last Mr. Beecber went before a
grand fury in Brooklyn, and by bis own
oath procured against me an indictment
for libel. This indictment furnishes the
best case to test the real issue between Mr
Beecher and me. The real issue is not
whether be shall pay ms a hundred
thousand dollars for ruining my home
(though not a penny of tM money would I
accept, even if a hundred juries should mnl
tiply it to a million, but simply whether
the Rev. Henry W ard Beecher is guilty
ot seduction and adultery. And whatever
complications may exist in my civil action
against Mr. Beecher for damages, eliciting
bis ceaseless demands for particulars, on the
other hand, simplicity itself in not more
simple than Mr. Beeeher's criminal case
against me for libel if I have accused him
falsely. In this criminal case I shall
neither trouble him for particulars, nor
drive him from the special term to the gen
eral, nor drag him to AlbaDy to the Court of
Appeals, nor compel bim to try his cause
with a mere tithe of bis evidence, nor in
any manner impose on him a gossamer's
weight of difficulty in his
BRINGING ME TO JUSTICE.
Moreover, in the criminal case be will be
relieved of his ill-omened fears of civil
damages; he will have the attack instead of
the defense; he will be entitled to the last
word to the Jury; and if I have borne false
witness against him. he will be ablo not
only to prove me guilty, but to send me to
III. I am advised and believe that tbe cun
ning managers of Mr. Beecber's safety are
seeking to contravene tho ends of justice by
the following stratagem, to-wit : As ßoon as
Mr. Beecher a counsel shall have restricted
me so as to make inadmissible my proofs of
bis fourteen months of adultery (thus cat-
tine the very heart's core out of the civil
suit), their plan then is to suddenly with
draw the criminal Indictment again; t me,
which withdrawal is to m explained to tbe
public by Mr. Beecber's chief champion
and toilow-sufferer under a ehargo
of seduction, tbe editor of the Brook
lyn Eagle, as an act of unexampled
magnanimity shown to mo by Mr. lieecber.
Iiy this plan of operations 1 am to be pre-
vented from trying Mr. Beeeher in the civil
suit; Mr.Beecher is at the same time to be
saved from the grim necessity of trying me
under the criminal Indict meat; and so, by
these two devices, Mr. Beecher is to escape
trial altogether. I respectfully request all
fair-minded persons to unite in determining
that Mr. Beecher shall not haye the moral
support of tbe community; either in thus
compelling me to rf strict mv proofs of his
adulteries of 1868, 1S6L and 1870, to two days
nor in his scheme of first procuring against
me a criminal indictment tor temporary ef
fect, and then withdrawing it from subse
IV. Touching Mr. Beecber's renewed de
mands for impossible particulars, I here re
peat in substance what my counsel presented
before the court a fortnight ago, in prompt
fulfillment of their pledge to supply at a
half-bour's notice all tbe particulars which
we possessed, ibey are these: That tbe
Rev. Henry Ward Beecbor committed atts
of adultery with Mrs. Elizabeth R. Tilton
on tbe 10th and 17th cf October, 1868, and at
Intervals thereafter till the spring of 1870;
that the said acts were committed
at 124 Columbia street and 174 Living
stoa street, in the city of Brooklyn; that
confessions of these acts were made by
Mrs. Tilton on the 3d ot July, 1870,
and at other times; that similar confessions
were made bv Mr. Beecher on the 30th ol
December, 1870, and at other times; that the
confessions of Mrs. Tilton were made to Mrs.
Martha B. Bradshaw, Mrs. Emma R. Moul
ton, Mr. Francis D. Moulton, myself and
others; that the confessions of Mr. Beecber
were made to Mrand Mrs, Moulton, myself
and others to eay nothlag ol the aeries of
Mr. Beecber's letters, by which be makes
plain confession of his guilt to all who can
read and think.
And I respectfully submit that the state
ment of particulars of which the 'orego
ing la a digest, and which was
laid by my counsel before the court
and the' public many days ago, la suffi
ciently explicit to warrant me in DOW de
manding that Mr. Beecber shall either be
estopped by public opinion from inipotmg
unheard of restrictions on my evidence in
the civil case, or else that he shall forthwith
begin his criminal prosecution. Further
more, I ask all Just men to join with me
in declaring that it Mr.Beecher shall still
further clog and hamper the civil action on
tbe one band, and at tbe same time shall
withdraw the criminal prosecution on the
other, thus using both these cases only to
prevent me from submitting to a jury the
general fact of his long continued adnltery,
Mr. Beecher shall then be deemed to have
confessed judgment, and must stand sell
acknowledged aa guilty before tbe civilized
WOriU. J HEODOR8 TILTON.

HOW THEY DID IT. .
THE WTTANPOTTE, KANSAS, ROBBERS THE TES
TIMONY OF WITNESSES IN COURT.
The Leavensworth Times of a late date
gives tbe manner in which the recent
railroad robbery in that state was consum
mated: Tbe preliminary examination of
Will. McDaniels, one of the Kans.3 Pacific
train robbers, took place at Wyandotte
Monday afternoon. Tbe first witness ex
amined was John Cloonan, Bection foreman
on the Kansas Pacific railroad : was working
on ine roaa, wnen two masitea men roue op
to me; asked where tbe rest of the sec
tion hands were; said they were all nzht
here with me; told us to throw down our
tools, as tbey were going to rob the train;
one of them poluted bis revolver at me, and
said he did not want any of us to move, or
he would blow our brains out; one of them
asked me if I knew how to throw a trai a off;
told hiui no, did not know anything about
It; then be proposed to me to go back afier
my tools and tear a rail out ot tbe track
at the station; then I eald that was a poor
way to stop a train, as it would throw
many passengers in the ditch; that we
could flag the train with a bat, cap or any
thing, and that tbey were sure to stop; I
would guarantee it; in about two or three
minutes one of them told us to coma out,
they wanted us to put some rails across the
track, and compelled us to do so; in tbe first
place they wanted to know where tbeengiue
stopped when flagged, bo as to put tbe rails
far enough away, so that the en
gine would stop betöre it got there;
oho of tbem pointed a rifle at tne
andcompellod us to put two defective rails
acrof s the track and down under the rails at
one end; tbey then tinted one of the rifles
at me, and told me they would kill me if I
did not da wi.at they told me, and it I did
they would not hurt me. He told us to put
one end of the rail under the north side of
the track, and lay tbe other end of it on top
of tze south rail, aud the other under tbe
south rail and on top of the north rail on tbe
track: after thev went I took the obstruc
tion off tbe track; tte train could not pass
until they were taken oil; the men were all
masked ; I could not describe any of them.
VINT. E. BARNARD
testified as follows: Am a fireman; saw
several men there; some strangers were do
ing one thing and some another; one of
them bsd charge of me; these men were
masked; I saw five masked men at first; I
expect they were making arrangements to
rob tho train; 1 can not describe tbo man
that took me off tbe train and guarded me
better than any of tbe rest; be was a man
about five foot eleven or six feet high; not
a very heavv man. but one that would
weigh ISO pounds: bad a mask on; noticed
in particular how be was shaved through
the mask; be bad chin wbifkers; bad
on a belt full of cartridges such as
used for carbines in the army; he had
a navy revolver In his right hand and one
on his left hip, and a carbine; bad a hat on
and a long coat; I saw five masked men;
could not swear that tbey were all armed
when he came in ; I saw them with arms in
their hands afterward; tone man fctood at
the left side of tbe engine wben I got off to
tbe ground; three of tbem stood there when
Murphy and I got off the engine; he took
charge of me; I cau't swear positively that I
have seen that man tince; my opinion is
that I have: saw nim first in Kansas City,
then in the Kansas City jail, then at tbe
state line on tbo train, then in this court;
tho defendant here is the man. .
A. J. PULLEM
testified: I reside four miles from here, be
tween here and Muncie; was at home on the
Stb, cutting out a fence row on the south
end of the place; about 1 o'clock five men
came riding up from towards the bridge, go
ing toward Muncie; saw the same five men
going back tbe same way they came, about
5 o'clock; ooe ci tbe men looked familiar,
as if I bad known bim some place;
they were armed with rifles, and pistols
each side of tbem; as he W6nt up be
was on tho side next to m$: aa they
came back be was on the other side ot the
road; I think I have seen one of them since
(the one riding on the near side) in Kansas
City and at Atchison ; have seen him in tbe
court-room; that gentleman there, the de
fendant, is tbe one who rode on tbe Bide
next me, going np.
Here the case rested, and the defendant
declined to offer any evidence. In default
of bail, the mammoth sum of $S2,G00. the
defendant was remanded to the custody of
tbe sheriff of Douglass county, where he will
remain untilJanTiarv 18.

I uaed to det my little dolls
Like belles I saw at night
Flash from the steps of their carriage
Into the door-ways bright.
But I could never fashion robe
Of that strange beamy white.
And though I tried, could never make
Those wondrous wheels of light.
Down, down, through tbe golden weather
Tbty bent like Kilver grain,
Hajtrjg; Mnly,all together,
"Ub, who la this lu pain?"
And when I told them, they answered,
"CV me play with u l" and came
Bo clone 1 felt a strange delight
Ha all my feeble utue.
They looked at one another
When i cried, 44 1 cn not play!"
With gltmujr of their lily bands
Folded my work away,
And swept about me, and drew me
Into tlittlr bono in, bright.
Till their gentle warmth pasted through me,
And oh, It made me light.
And when my children laid me down.
The old familiar pain.
The crutch, the care, the heaviness,
1 took them again.
But oh, the nmell of miles of flowers.
Where flowers never grew:
The tender oool of Ruminer showers,
Thasoent of wood-land dew,
Came in by the door and window ;
And bird I could not aea,
In time to faintly beating wings,
. Hang iweeteet. &lra to me.
And when my blessed children came,
And took me up to slay.
Lo! all tbe pin and heaviness
Forever fell away.
THK LOVE THAT IS "UOLDEN."
. From Tinsley'a Magailne.
Not Not with turbulence;
Vol with the fret and weary of doubt ;
Not wiih uncertainty compassed about;
With wooing and coaxing to-dav.
And thwarting and crotMng to morrow;
Not with light aughter and play,
Or too much trouble aud sorrow ;
Or vexed tears, ttcorehlDg the longing eyes;
Or pitiful glances, or penitent sighs
Would I have love.
No ! Calm and earnest, good and true,
Mellowed by tenderness through and through;
Ever the same, yet ever new:
Quietly watehful : brooding above,
O'er me and round me such the love
Buch the love only 1 care to have;
Pa: lent and rentful, holy, calm;
Life's pulse and bretth
Ponring into all wounds a balm,
THEIR EXISTENCE IN THE OIL REGIONS OF
THAT STATE RECENT ATROCIOUS MÖRDERS
BEATEN ANDSU0T IN OPEN DAYLIGHT.
The New York Herald of the 2Gth inst.
gives still further Instances of the doings of
the "Molly Maguires" in Pennsylvania: The
Molly Maguire of Ireland and the Molly
Maguire of Pennsylvania is not the tame
person; in Irelanl it was tbe imposition of
tbe landlord that raided his ire; here his
anger burns at the slightest grievance, either
real or imaginary, and causes him
upon the least provoc-tion to use tbe
pistol or the knife. The minister ot the
Catholic Church may deny his existence
because bis existence is independent of the
church. He is a man excommunicated from
the lakh, who would as soon assault a priest
as an overseer. He is well represented by
the man whom a Catbolio priest a tew years
ago, upon his own evidence, cent to the
penitentiary, and whose term of imprison-1
ment expires to-day. The Molly Maguire of
the Schuylkill region is shrew and cun
ning and strategic. I am informed
that he often obtains the influence of dare
devils totally unknown to the overseers of
tnese localities to do bis work. My inform
ant went so far as to tell me bow a certain
"boss" wRsssaulted unexpectedly by three
desperadoes whom he had never seen before,
and escaped death at their hands only by a
miracle. I know another instance where a
man was followed to Europe, and immedi
ately upon his arrival at Liverpool was slain
by a party who was to bim unknown. I do not
wish the readers of the Herald to rely upn
my own words for the truth of what I say,
for I am a stranger in this neighborhood,
and a stranger anywhere is liable to be mis
led or misinformed. I submit, therefore,
below an interesting and graphic statement
rendered to me to-day from Constable John
J. Kitroher, a well known man in Schuylkill
county, and one of tbe bravest and most
daring officers this country ever naa.
CONSTABLE KARCHER'S STATEMENT.
"I know that tbe Molly Maguires exist
among us aud can prove it beyond all ques
tion from my own personal experience
Coroner Hesser. buried yestesday, was as
saulted last week and his body cut and
hacked in tbe mo it terrible manner by par
ties who will never be known. A day or
two ago tbe chief burgess of Tomaqua was
knocked down and beaten by unknown
men, while it was only yesterday that John
Leitenbureer was shot twice in opon day
light by a man named Britt. Leitenbnrger
met unit at iiecxeitsviiie, ana
demanded his immediate, surrender.
Britt swore that if Le'itenburger
dared approach bim L would kill nim with
the shotgun ho held primed and cocked in
his band. Leitenburger bravely attemnted
to fulfill his duty, when Britt discharged one
of the barrels full at him. The first shot
tore the victim's band and fearfully lacer
ated one of his arms. Without waiting to
learn the effect of tbe first shot, Britt, with
deliberate aim, fired tbe second, which took
effect in Leitenburger's groin, causing him
to fall. As he loll he fired with unsteady
aim, and then, In open daylight, the would
be murderer made his escape. A warrant
was at once issued for his ar
rest. Despite this surmise ot many,
Britt did not flee the place; but, on the
contrary, appeared a few hours later, armed
with two revolvers ana a gun, nu ueueu
the whole place to arrest him. He paraded
tbe streets and walked up and down the
railroad all day, but no one ventured to lay
a hand on him. Officers Price and Darling
went after him, but he was such a battery
in himself that it would have been foolhardy
for them under the circumstances to have at
tempted bis arrest. I lelt here to catch bim
this morning at 4 o'clock, but upon my ar
rival he bad cone, and, though I searched
the town everywhere, I could not find him.
During the last three years l have arrested
and not one of them has been executed. I
have seen numerous letters, addressed to
different patties bv tbe Mollies, all of which
were of the bloodless and tbe most brutal
nature. Why, let me tell you a single case
in point. There was a young man who
lived in this neighborhood lormerly, by tbe
name of Bradley ; along with a man earned
Farrell he went one day to a funeral. Far
r ell, after the servicea were over, invited
Bradley home to supper with bim.
and upon arriving at the house asked
bim to take a chair at tbe table. Brad
ley did so, and Farrell, excusing
himself, went up stairs. Presently he came
down carrying a shot gun. Without one
moment's warning Farrell discharged both
barrels into Bradley's body, instanfly kill
ing him. Not satisfied with tbb, he tookra

A REFORMED PRIZE FIGHTER.
THE PREACHING OF BENPIOO S1JCCT HIS REFOR
MATIONSOME STRANOK UTTERANCES FROM"
A STRANGER 80CRCK.
The London Standard gives an account
of the preaching of a reformed prire fighter
from which the fallowing extracts are
taken: Bendlgo weuld say that two years
ago he realy did die oi bis former Belf; and
accord ine to bis own utterances yester
day, he is more astonished than anybody
else can be at the apparition from outre
tombe, "To think" he said In his evening
autobiographical address, "that I, who 3d
years ago won the champion's belt from
Burt, and afterwards thrashed Ben Caunt,
inoula be here In London to fight for
Jesus Christi I am a brand plucked from
the burning." In the sensational style of the
advertisement, Bendlgo is a "miracle of
mercy." Tha. "mlraole" U here used in
its conventional rather than its theological
ßense, we may learn from the authentic
comment of the superintendent of the
Cabman's Mission, tbe Rev. John Dupee,
who, in introducing the reformed pugullist
to the congregation at eaoh of the three
revivalist nervines, innk ni him aa tv
.greatest miracle of tbe nineteeth century."
xu uem;riuing mis evening aervloe we are
virtually dtscrlbing alL Ol course we shall
not bind ourselves not to incorporate a
feature or two from the ret. A hymn given
out by Mr. Dupee came first, and it waa
the same which bad done similar duty
In tbe morning. In tbe prayer, also by
tbe superintendent, one was struck with tbe
mention of "Bendigo" by name. In the
morning the same peculiarity was re
marked, even tbe familiar form Bendie" be
ing employed. We chronicle, without criti
cising, for which, where so much was ex
cellent, we can find no heart. The Almighty
was besought to "bless B-ndlgo, and grant
that, as be had been valiant in the ring, and
bad never been overthrown In tbe arena,
so he might be unconquered in hi i Christian
warfare." Although, of course, the prayer
was thought extempore, there were short
petitions, reminding of thesa in the Litany,
which were a great improvement on tbe
long winded paragraphs too often to be
found in the public prayers of the
dissenting pulpits of all denomlua--tions.
Mr. Dupee and his brother,
Mr. James Du Dee. of Notti
and known tbere as the 4,01d Street
Preacher," made some appn priata remarks
uy mw way oi inirouucing their
Bendlgo, to the congregation. The cham
pion wa fcom there, it seetn,Octber 11,1811,
so that ,1 not more than fcixty-three
years of age. He has fought 21 putlltle
encounters and, through drink, baa
been 28 times in goal. Many efforts
bad been mad 3 in vain to Induce
bim to change bis mode of life. But
about two years ago be waa induced to go
and hear the eoiebrated converted collier,
Richard Weaver, and from that time he be
came a reformed man. Bendigo, who,
throughout all the three servioes, sat on the
platform on the superintendent's right
band, is a not unpleasant locking man.
His face reminded us of more 'than one
bishop. Nothing of tbe sneaking iznobleness
ot a Hti?ging or a Uriah Heep is traceable In
his features. Indeed it is inconceivable
that a wearer ot the champion's belt should
ever have been an utlerally hopeless man,
wild and vicious as l is course may too
long have been. Ho owns himself an
utterly illiterate man. unable, as he deeply
regrets, to read the Bible be has learned
thus late to love. "I tried this very day,"
he said, "and read eight or nine letters, but
could make nothirg of tbem." But be pro
tests that he leeis noco tbe less tbe trutha
of the gospel in hia heart, and is now quite
happy, which he never was be!ore. 4,When
I was fighting in the prize ring," be says,
"little did I think I was fighting against
Ood. But when I came to the cross, I was
licked in the very firt round." Before tbe
moral crisis, he speaks oi having exper
ienced, be knew full well there was a Ood,
for the stars in heaven taught him that.
Once when he beard that infidels were men
who did not believe in Ood, be declared aa
be doubled bis fists significantly, that ' be
would soon make tbem believe." God had
now taken possession of bis heart, und he
had found rest. "Whereas I was blind," be
said, "now I see. I do not think myself
a poor man. I live in a bouse at 2s. a week,
and with Jesus Christ in that kousö I deem
myself a gentleman." Bendigo's remarks
evinced deep feeling and no choice was pos
sible between the belief in his sincerity and
the conviction that he is tbe most finished
and artistic actor in tbe world. This is, we
believe, Bendigo's first appearance in Lon
don since his ohange of life. But in his na
tive town, Nottingham, and In the midland
districts in general, many thousands have
taken a deep intrest in the converted prize
fighter. BATESVILLE BURNED UP.
