Washington, November 17, 1SVS.
As giving the opinions of one of the
most intelligent and influential of Southern
men oi questions of interest at this time to
all m.n North and South, I send the fol
lowing declaration of Gen. Joseph E. John
ston, member of congress elect from the
Richmond, Va., 1 listrict :
"I will venture to say that the attitude of
the g -ntleinen from Southern States will be
Mich as to (lis:ipsiint the irreconcilablcs of
the opposition, who have, I see, already be
gun an effort to array a solid North against
a solid South. We will johably have lit
tle to say in reply to Radicals of this s'ainp.
Our acts will speak more emphatically for
us. Sectionalism was killed list Tues
day, and long before 1SS0, the "solid
south"and the "solid north" will be for
gotten terms. The people of the south have
known for thirteen years that the war whs
at an end, but these long-range Radicals
and latter-day warriors cannot, seemingly,
be brought to a realization this fact. The
revival of the charges that it is our settled
policy to saddle the war debt of the Con
federacy upon the country is absurd com
pletely so and it passes my comprehension
how an intelligent reader can receive such
reckless invention, with patience. The
south is now as close a part of the Union as
is New England, Virginia lias the same in
terest in the general fraternity of the coun
try us .Massachusetts and iter representa
tives, and the representatives of the south
will lie found to be as active in support of
all measures tending to the general good of
all sections of the country as tho getlemen
from Maine or Vermont."
In this connection it is worth while to
note that Messrs. Z. Chandler uml Don
Cameron announce that Mr. Hayes
hits become a "stalwart," abandoning
his "southern policy." Just what that pol
icy has been or is no man knows, but what
ever it is Mr. Hayes denies that he has
abandoned it. Messrs. Cameron mid Chan
dler have been much with Mr. Hayes in the
past ten days, and as th"y are notably men
of ideas and convictions, while it is doubt
ful if Mr. Hayes has cither, I believe, it is
more likely that they are right and lie

The universal opinion seems to he that

It is possible the Dein HTittie majority in

removed nny doubt the timid may hava fc'.t

sures the re-election of Bamlall as Speaker.
That very clear headed man, proliting by
Ids own experliwe, and havim,' nu ro ex

perhaps more eflieirnt organization of

could his p;ist ndniinisiraiion of his high

From llie Loul-vi'le Coiirii r Journal .
In the interview with .Mr. Bheuben D ii-
iey, published in yesterday's Courier-Journal
Ik; states that S.'iiator Morton was an infi
del. This will be news to the m iny good
christian fiiemls of the late Senator, nnd
Mr. Dailey's char.'e has already been tie-
men oy seve.ai leaning HepUlillcans ol .Jel-fersonvil!-,
and it now stands him in hand
to nt "ke good his assertion.
Tin; Indiana correspondent of the Conner
Journal was constantly in or near the lvsi-
i deuce of Senator Morton for the three d.tv
I preceding his death, and. as will be remein
! lu red, sent bulletins often a-, to his condi-
i tion. The three (lavs were terrible days of
the (h int: Senator, and he fre-
M'teiilly called upon Jesus Christ for merry
I The night before his deatli the extreme suf
fering of the distinguished politician ami
his cries and moans wen- exceedingly dis
tressing; so much so that his most hated
politic il foe could nut help but pity him.
In his paroxysms of pain he would Use such
expression as these, which were distinctly
heard from beneath the window of his sick
chamber, where were gathered on the pave
ment a number of newspaper corr-spond-cnts:
"God, have mercy!" "Oh, Christ, save
lne!" "Help me, Jesus!" and other like ut
terances of a suffering, dying soul. Fur
thermore, Senator Morton did not only want
to live, but he was afraid to die, and al
though the question was propounded to him
a short time. Mure his death, "Oliver, you
are not afraid to die?" his only answer
was a sorrowful look and a slight negative
motion of the- head. If Senator Morton
was an iniidel, his faith forsook him in his
last hours. Perhaps souk; of the late Sena
tors friends can enlighten the public upon
this gr..vc question.

"Is that a pigf
"Yes, that is a pig."
"What is a hog.'"
"A hog spits ail over the floor f a street
car; he also wants the stamp clerk ut the
lt OlKco to wait on him tirst. That's the
way you can tell a hog from a pig."
"Does a pig root with his feetf
"No; he roots with his nose. A pig's
nose i culled a snout. A cheeiful-minded
pig will turn over more ground in search of
oik; small potato than the average boy would
dig up in hunting for a gold wateh."
"What gait docs the pig taker
" He likes an open gate the best."
"Is a pig as intelligent as a dogC
"More so ubout some things. A dog
most always jumps over a fence, straining
his muscles, and running the risk of break
ing his back, while a pig dives under it and
runs no risk. A pig can tell a hill of pota
toes I'min ii hill of cucumbers, but a dog
can't. You lead a dog, but the pig; will

"He can see by night as well as by day.
In driving one out of the garden he won't
appear to see the hole he came in at, but he

trough, six feet long, will still crowd each

A REBEL BAXtiLUS STORY.

kidnap (inierid Giant while he w:i, en

was tt-sened that the iilan was i-imei ived

coiiiuiiUed two yeats ago, and on" of them.
loic Younger, has made a statement to a
representative ol the Pioneer Press relativi
ty the alleged attempt to kidnap Oenend
flrnnt. Hi; denies the story as printed;
says he was well iiei(iiainteil 'with Ocm nil
Allen, but never heard of such an attempt.
The other men snM to have been connected
with it were not in luii,iar.a at the time,
the Limes brothers l.ing with luantn ll.
in Missouri, and Coin Younger brothers.
Mlfl nnd Udu being mere: Imj;,k at Im-ii-.
Tie- headquarters oft he Federal army were
not an Milligan's Mei-.d nt that time
but at J.-tck'-on, and Orat.t had been
ti'iii-l' ire.l to Virginia.
Cole Younger te!l' an interesting story
in accounting fur his own whereabouts.
Early in IMM, m company with John Ju
rett, also said to have been concerned ill
the kidnapping attempt, he led 30o paiti
san rangers on a raid of 1,000 miles from
Texas to Missouri. The raiders reached
Mississippi on December 2, and had tights
w ith the regular Unionists bands at Omek i.
Miliigan's Betid, ami Goodrich's Landing.
From the latter place they fell back to
Bastrop. About the 27th of the same
month they succeeded in driving everybody,
except the settlers of the river, from' Milii
gan's bend to Luke Providence, a distitm.
of about 100 miles by the river. Joe Lee,
another alleged kidnaper, was in the party,
and perhaps this raid forms a slender foun
dation for the story of an attempt to w-iy.ir
Grant. After the raid, Cole Younger joined
Shelby's command of regular confederate
at Camden, Ark.
If a man were to deliberately shut hiin.-'it
fur six or eii'ht hours daily in ii stuffy rooni,
with closed doors and windows (the do.m
not being opened even to change the air
during tin- period of incarceration !, and were
then to complain of headache nnd debility,
he would be justly told tliat bis own want
of intelligent forsight was tin; cause of his
suiF-ring. Nevt therless,this is what the rcat
lines of people do every night of their lives,
with no thought of their imprudence. There
are few bed rooms which are perfectly safe?
to pass the night in without something more
than ordinary precautions to secure an in
flow of fresh air. Every sleeping apartment,
should, of course, have a fireplace with an
open chimney, and in cold weather it is w i ll
if the grate contains a small fire, at least
enough to create an upcast current and
carry oil' the vitiated air of the loom. In all
such pases, however, when a tire is used, it,
is necessary to see that the Hir d'awn into
the room comes from the outsido of trillions.-.
Uy an easy mistake, it is possible
to place the occupant of a bedroom with a
lire, in a closed house, in a direct current
of foul air, driwn from all parts of the
establishment. Summer and winter, with or
without the use of fire, it is well to have u
free egress for pup- idr. This should be tin
veniilator's first concern. Foul air will Ibid
an exit if pure air is admitted insufficient
qiiuiiity, but it is uot certain pure air will
be drawn in if the impure is drawn away.
So far as sleeping-rooms are concerned it is
wise to let in air from w ithout. The aim
must be to accomplish the object without
causing u great fall of temperature or
draught. The windows may be drawn
down an inch or two at the top with advan
tage, and a fold of muslin will form a "ven
tilator" to take off the feeling of draught.
This, with an open fireplace, will generally
suffice, and produce no unpleasant con
sequences, even when the Weather is cold.
It is, however, essential that the outside
should be pure. Little is likely to be gained
by letting in a fog or even a town mist.
Thk (Ji'estion of Piiofits. "What is
the profit, and w hat the risk (" are the first
considerations in every business transaction.
Messrs. Lawrence &. Co., bunkers, 57 Ex
change Place, New York City, make large
ppitits monthly for their customers, by the
new Combination System of operating in
stocks at the New Y'ork Stock Exchange.
By this system they mass together various
sums from thousands of customers, and
with the aggregate become giants in the
street, placing their patrons on an equality
with the kings of finance, whether the
amount invested be great or small. $15
pays $75, or 5 per cent, on tho stock during
!I0 days; $73 pays $455. or 0 per cent.;
$21)0 pays $2,000, or 10 per cent., and so on,
according to the market. Messrs. Law
rence it Co.'s circular, (copyrighted and
sent free), contains "Two unerring rules for
success in stock operations," and explains
everything. The Brooklyn Journal, April
2!lth, says: "Messrs Lawrence & Co. have
many facilities by which their customers
secure advantages not otherwise obtainable.
Our editor made a net profit 'of $101.23 on
an investment of $() in their combina
tions," The standing uml responsibility of
Messrs. Lawrence & Co. is unquestioned
and they furnish best of references. High
est market prices paid for all kinds of
Slocks and Bonds, and new Government
Mai.akiai, Feveh. Malarial fevers, con
stipation, torpidity of the liver and kidneys,
general debility, nervousness and neuralgic'
ailments yield readily to this great disf-ase
conqueror, Hop Bitters. It repairs the rav
ages of disease by converting the food into
rich Idood, and it gives new life ami vigor
to the aged and infirm always. See "Prov
