In the alleged fact that the negroes
are scared out of the South with shotguns
and Bowie-knives there is nothing wonder
ful ; but the fact that every one of the ne
groes is scared to Kansas, is utterly imx
plicable. The good sense, of the North command
General Logan's manner of dealing with the
"chivalrous Lowe." The manner of his re
fusal to kill or be killed, ill do more toward
bringing the murderous "code" into con
tempt than all the sermons that will be
preached in ten years to come.
We are not much given to moralizing;
but wo feel moved to say that we always
do as we please about believing the man
who says he dislikes to hear his neighbors
back-bitten. It may be depravity; but we
know men take a ghoulish delight in hear
ing their acquaintances beuu aiied. It affords
enc the consolation of knowing that tWu
are other mean people in the world besides
himself. If every family in tlic land were
not a kind of defamatory mid. the doctrine
of total depravity would be upset in a fort
night. This proneness but we lorget.
This is Sunday talk on Saturday.
Kitchen, who represents a North Caro
lina district in congresses a superlative ass.
although a Democrat. There is something
paradoxical iu the assertion, but it is true,
nevertheless. He reared and plunged
around the aisles of the house, the other
day, like a wild animal, because his col
league had said that he ohtainod his seat by
fraud. If Democrats should lose their
temper every time Republicans bear false
witness against them, they would not enjoy
the felicity of an equable temper one day
in a life tims. Kitchen not understanding
that it is a "matter of cours;i" for Republi
cans to lie, rendered himself supremely rid
icalous the. laughing kiuck of the country,
Ton coil, unadulterated impertinence,
commend us to the speech delivered by Dr.
Tilm ige before the Hrooklyn Presbytery.
If it had been an extemporized effort we
fchould have thought thr.t he had sinipiy
b.'en fiushed by what he considered a vic
tory, and mid what no reasonable man
could metn. It was, however, a speech
prepare.! before hand, and every sit ncc
Wis premeditated. He neeum to legard
lilinwlf as a model preacher, heau and
ahouldcre above the rest of the word, md is
witlial.su "eccentric" that he is willing " to
publicly announce this opinion. "With a
charming naivete lie tells Ids judges that
they can't begin to crowd a house st he
can, and when they suggest that his deri
de pyrotechnics arc not fitting in the jupit
ho snecringly asks which ot theui
preach to larger audiences. Tlio whole
peformancc reminds enc of an ancient
rooster who hail just escaped the coup do
grace flapping his wings from the fence am
crowing his defiance to the world. There
is one tiling pretty certain, that if Chris
tianity can stand such a strain us this bur-
lesquu orator lias put upon it the fact will
go far toward establishing its superhuman
Now that hundreds of the negroes in
Kansas are at the point ol starvation, and
will inevitably perish unless they return to
their homes in the South fr are succored
from abroad, we shall soon hear Republi
can editors and orators roar in about this
strain: "The blood-thirsty terocity of the
Southern demons is seen, not so much In
the fact they drove the unoffending negroes
out of the South, but in the fact that hav
ing done so, they scared them to Kansas
where they well knew they would starve,
freeze and die ! May the avenging God not
look forgivingly upon this act of apalling
savagery That's what Republican ora
tors and editors will preach and print after
I awhile, and gaping Republican asses all

Republican philanthropists to the num
ber uf two hundred, met in Washington a
few days ago, to raise money to feed the
starving refugees in Kapsas. Speeches,
firey hot were delivered, and voice was given
to the inhuman sentiment that it were bet
ter for the r.e''ro to live a week as a free
man in Kansas than to live a half century
in chains and in constant fear of death, as
they were sai.l to be living in Miss, and La.
Gentlemen to pass around the hat were
then designated, aud rejoice ye hungry,
hoards of refugee blacks the sum of eight
dollars, forty cents was raised! The result
showed that the crowd sympathised with
the sentiment of the speaker, and felt dis
inclined to do anything to prolong the ref
ugees' Kansas life bevond the week.
Talm.vie sneered at the dolorous divines
who sat in judgment upon his style of or
atory, rd dubbed them the drones of the
pulpit. Their raid upon him he stigma
tized as the suggestion of envy and jealousy.
With their antiquated, tuneral, sing-song
methods and mouthing?, they repel all who
are not influenced by the strongest sense of
duty; while lie, with his gospel pyrotech
nics, his tragic airs, and red-hot utterances,
draws great multitudes, and having thus
housed them, he can, he says, wing them
with gospel buckshot at pleasure. One old
gentleman, gouty and rheumatic, knowing
very well that his age and infirmities would
protect him against importunities to verify
his statement, declared that he would
"stand on his head to got peoplu to attend
divine service:" but this old man was very
promptly squelched with an "Oh! you!
Yes, of course;" and from that time forth
there was no further endorsement of Tab
mage's stvie of sacred actinjr.

ANIXi'i'liEK HUNHs THAT AKE NOT C.U'I
Kditor (.; the it;;He;:ii :
Iii your i-s'ie of to-day there is a sug
gestive editorial paragraph anent that
slippery, visionary Lawrence Uriah Rc-avis.
It may not lie altogether ur.prof. table to de
vote a few incites of space to a brief ins
cription of some of his tortuous windings,
self-delusions, and his delusions of our
over-credulous public. Just now he j,
beguiling the good people of New Orleans,
to whom he promise for their city every
exclusive privilege of the Union, ju.-t r.s he
has done to the citizens of some sen or so
of other cities and town. Mr. Reavis would
appear to think that any place at which he
"lectures" is a world in itself having no
communication with any other world. On
no other hypothesis can I understand his
holding out hopes to many cities which can
be enjoyed or tulriled with respect to only
one. Hut the se'.fstultitication of
such a course is too evident
to need pointing out, and no
one with nn intact cranium woujd be guilty
of advocating that which is as idiotic as it
T,rue, the moving of the national capital
to St. Loui ha iot:; been considered, even
in that city, a capital joke. Although
Reavis has been pounding away at the
idea for half u lifetime he has n,.t enlisted
the serious advocacy for his wild dream of
a single newspaper in St. Louis. He bored
every editor and reporter there in this con
nection until he was ordered out of eve ry
sanctum in the Mound City. The most
that he has ever been able to wring from
the local press, (and this only as a great
favor brought about by outside influence)
was a favorable notice of one of his
quasi books on thcBiibject; but the books
and the notices were addressed to deaf
tars, or evoked only a smile of derision or
contempt whenever they were referred to.
I have applied the word "Muasi" to those
books beause very little of them was
written by Reavis Limsclf. Although only
faded laurels wero awarded to the presumed
nATT.Y OAIKO BULLETIN:
1 "author," the beys were never envied by the
real writers of these precious production.
However, they were no inoro written by
Reavis than .Milton's daughters were, the
composers of Paradise Lost, nor so much
go- fur whereas the blind bard dictated
that sublime poem to his daughters, who
acted us his amanuenses, Lawrence U. did
not dictates line of tho capital-joke hooks
to their writers. There wero few reporters
iu St. Louis who were not importuned, and
many of them successfully, to pen chapters
fur those publications. 1 hey, tne reporters,
were promised liberal remuneration, but
received very little of it. This, I need
scarcely say, was not considered a capital
Not very long ago the capital visionary
started in St. Louis a two-cent
morning paper called The Tribune,
and in bold type, immediately under
the title, the paper was announced to be
"devoted to the civilization of North
mcrica.'' Alas, however, those who sib-
subscribed in advance for an accurately
weighed out two cents per day wordi of
civilization, were badly duped, as the Tri
bune and its extra quality of North Amer
ican civilization gave out in less than three
weeks. This, too, was not considered a
capital joke by the subscribers w ho paid a,
quarter or more in advance. As for the re
porters uud printers of the Tribune they
were left out in the cold, and have not been
paid to the present day. Tliey also fail to
see any capital joke in the matter. The
truth is the visionary had started the paper
without a cent of capital.
The same bright illusionist has almost
constantly in hand, magazines, pamphlets,
lecture?, lives of quandom jminent men,
etc., etc., all of which are shuns of a more
or less gigantic character. The lithograph
oi anu neiiicaiion to some sulv, vain
merchant on change ensnare ids "bleeding
to a sufficient extent to defra- the cost of
publishing the pamphlet, etc. Half of it is
devoted to advertisements and so this non
descript thing "pays." But r.otwithstand
ing all this the "tricks have proved vain.'
and Reavis, a rollirg stone of considerable
magnitude, has never gathered much moss
For many years, Mr. Editor, I have watched
the visionary's career, and therefore I know
of that of which I speak. It is only proper
that something about htm should be known
in every town of the Union, in order that
people, in the event of a Reavis descent on
their city, may know how to act. He is
like the clown iu the pantonine, who van
ishes through a trap, and as suddenly ap
pears in some unexpected quarter, shouting
"here we are again !'' Cairo is as likely as
any other place to be selected for a visit
by L. U. Reavis, and then, of course,
he will prove as clear as mud that this is
the fittest site on the continent for the na
tional capital. I once attended one of his
lectures in another place in Illinois (there
were eight persons ami two dogs present, all
told i in which he spoke as enthusiastically
of the town as he has ever done f St.
Louis or New Orleans. His praise is too
general to be of any value in particular.
He reminds me of Shakespeare's 0 rati mo,
"who speaks an infinite deal of nothing.
His reasons are as two grains of wheat hid
in two bushels of chaff. You shall v.-ek
all day ere you find them, and when they
are found they are not worth the scar h."
