r.FKIOUL PAPER OP ALEXANDER COUNTY.
Sknatoii Blaink lias announced his pur
posa to vote against Secretary Sherman's
recommendation that the legal-tender
clause be stricken from the greenbacks, as
he thought it would do groat injustice to a
majority of the people of the country.
Wi: believe with the Quiiicy Herald that
the people of Memphis have commenced in
time and in earnest to avert the horrors ot
another yellow fever epidemic. And In or
der to aid the unfortunate city, Governor
Marks of Tennessee lias issued a call for an
extra session of the Legislature to enact
such laws for the sanitary improvement of
the city of Memphis as the citizens of that
place have decided to be necessary. The
special session is to meet on the Kith inst.
The Memphis people have agreed tlmt their
HfrooU must be repaired, a system of sewers
constructed and other measures of purifica
tion taken, if they desire to escape another
visitation of yellow fever next summer, and
that these improvements will demand a
special tax of two per cent, on property
and an additional tax m privileges. Un
der the present laws of the State those taxes
can not be levied, and the legislature is to
be asked to pass special acts giving the re
quired authority. The citizens of the un
fortunate city have made up their minds to
sacrifice a part of their property, if neces
sary, to preserve the remainder. The pro
posed additional tax would be a heavy bur
den on them in their present condition, but
it would not be nearly so largo a sum as
they spend annually in removing to other
cities to escape the summer epidemic, to
Kay nothing of the losses brought about by
the suspension of business. Their city
mu.it bo either abandoned or purified nt a
heavy expense and they have decided in
favor of the latter. "
THE DEMOCRATIC OUTLOOK.
It is conceded on all hands that in the
next Presidential contest the youth
will be "solid" for the Democratic
Presidential candidate. The action of
the Republican party has made that inev
itable. And that vote will be counted
as it is given for the Democratic candi
dato if so given.
Now, what his. the Republican party
ilone of late to assure it victory next year
in New York, Connecticut, Indiana and
New Jersey? These four states gave their
Electoral votes to the Democratic Presi
dential candidate in 1370. Naturally,
they aro Democratic states.
In 1878, the Republicans had a plu
rality in New York over the Democrats
of 34,001; but tho Grocnbackcrs polled
73,133, therao,t of which caurj from the
Connecticut, in 1878, gave tho Republi
can candidate for governor over the Dem
ocratic candidate a plurality of 2,482 : but
tltc Greenback candidate polled 8,314
oti. Tueso Greenback votes nearly ull
camo from tho Democratic party.
On thft. Congressional vote in NewjJer
7, in 1878, the total Republican vote was
90,314, Democratic 70,1)38 and Natiouul
24,flOU making the Democratic and Green
back vote combined 101.M7, and ucing a
majority of 1 1.023 over the Republican
In Indiana, in 1879, tho aggregate Con
jircsaiouitl vote was Democratic 175,513;
Democratic-National 18,720 making unit
ed '1!4,233; Republican 171,017; Hcpub-
ican-Nfvtioual 9,715 making united 180,
020. This gave a Democratic and a Democratic-Greenback
majority of 13,504 over
the Republicans and Greenback Republi
cans; but there was a distinctively No
tional voto ot 30,804.
President Hayes and Secretary John
Sherman by their late assault on the Green
back and the coinage of Silver liavo shock
ed and repelled the Greenbackers, 'Nation
als and thoso who believe in the silver dol
lar of the fathers. However much tho
president may disclaim tiny intention to
make the hostility to the Greenback and
silver money an administration measure,
his official, well-weighed, declared hostility
to this the people's money has unveiled
the purpose of the "money power' that
controls the Republican party. Thenaluiul
result will be to throw tho .Democrats ami
Greenbackers together in political action,
and such unity of action will insure the de
feat of tho Republican party.
WHY THERE WAS NO THANKSGIV
ING DINNER AT THE WHITE
WiNhlliiitoti Hi-publican .
Tho usual Thanksging dinner at the
While House did not eomo oT this year;
and there must be something very funny
about it, for the subject creates a good
many sly winks and smiles whenever it is
mentioned before any of the gentlemen
connected with the president's personal
stiilt. It is an old-time custom tor the
president to give, on Thanksgiving Day, a
dinner to his private secretary, assistant
private secretary, executive clerk and oilier
gentlemen of the White House, and their
w ives. It was clone last yoar, ana has not
been omitted before for at least twenty
years. It has been suggested that econ
omy is at the bottom of this omission on
the part of the president; but Jiis is a
shameless insinuation. The prcsidnt is,
without doubt, careful with his money,
which is very proper, considering that he
gets only $50,000 a year, and that his term
of oflicc expires nbout fifteen months irom
now; but it is hardly fair to say that he
failed to give the usual dinner on econ
omic grounds. Tho president is a very
rich man; he has three or four children
who would be thrown upon a cold world if
anything should happen their lather but
he would not miss the cost of a dinner to
his clerks, Besides all the vegetables for
the white house are furnished by the pub
lic gardner, and his meats conn; from the
commissary ileivirtmcnt at the nom
inal price- of a few cents per j
pound. The president gels his house :
rent free, his "as tree, his fuel free, and I
most of his servants free. As he does not
furnish wine the costliest part of an en
tertainment to his guests, his living ex
penses must romo within $10,000 a year.
He then has a ch ar saving of $10,000 a
year from his salary alone, to say nothing
of his large income from his private for
tune. The president has done some unwie
things, no doubt who has not ; hut it. is
unfair to say that he omitted an old-time
custom that would not have cost him $10
to follow, on the ground of economy." It
has even been suggested so contemptible
arc some minds that somebody made the
president a gift of several turkeys, and that
he did not give the customary dinner be
cause the cranberries were not scut too.
The real reason in the case is, I understand,
that the president went to Philadelphia to
spend his Thanksgiving. A low-minded
wretch, upon hearing this remark, said:
'Well, he didn't take the cook and his tur
keys with him did he? The buys would
have had quite as good a time in the state
dining room with the president absent."
All this is small business. 1 he president is
a good, moral, religious man. He is gentle,
and many on that account, may call him
weak and insipid. But he has a pure na
ture, which should be the admiration of nil
mankind. It was not on economical
grounds that he discarded an old custom,
surely. The truth, however, is promised
by a competent authority after Mr. Hayes
retires from tho White Mouse.
DICKENS AND THACKffRAV. '
Herald Interview with l'ublinlier l.lupiucult.
"ilow do you like Dickens personally?"
" Dickens was uaturally a good-hearted,
jolly, pleasant fellow. But his early and
brilliant success turned his head. Like
Napoleon, ho was intoxicated by his own
glory. To use a horsy expression, 'ho felt
his oats' a little too much. Hit was a good
deal of a fop and u little of a snob in his
dress and manners. It was pert, if not
impertinent, for DickeiiB, a young man of
thirty, to call Washington lrvin,g an old
man of sixty and the most famous living
writer, 'My dear Irving.' But life snobbery
and foppery were forgot ton in the presence
of the man himself, lie was so hearty, fresh
"Do Ids novels still s 11 well?''
"Oh, yes; t icy sell; but a reaction in
favor of Thackeray has set in. Thackeray
won his way slowly to recognition, and he
was all the better for it. He was thirty
seven wlnm he wrote 'Vanity Fair, the
novel which established his reputation.
After that his course was right onward.
Thackeray was less ell'usive than Dickens,
I u: he was more genuine Ho was delight
ful at a private dinner party, hut not so
ready us Dickens as a puplic speaker.
The latter was particularly happy upon
such occasions. Once, at u meeting of tho
the Authors' Fund Society, Tom Campbell,
the chairman, could not preside, and
Dickens was called upon, at a moment's
notice, to take his place. He made a brill
iant impromptu speech, which surprised
and delighted all who hoard it. Thacke
ray enjoyed a good dinner. Ho was
particularly fond of American oysters and
c nvMSs-backcd ducks. In fact, I was too
much of a club man he ate too many
goixl dinners. His literary fame, though
less splendid than Dickens' during life,
will probably bo more lasting."
