rail that a class or men, who havo not tho
wolfaro of tho south at lioart, como from

rights of many of tho southern pooplu aio

to secure their votes to olovato thorn to po

aro regarded with dislruH and Socially
ostracised. They secure lucrntlvo oillccs,
defraud thu niople, and in all tlielr nets
seemingly endeavor to evcilo public lavor
ngfiinst them. A a natural consequence,
at intervals, the indignation probably of
an individual may bo nroiucd, and an in
dividual nsault tumlo which is soon mngni
fled into a Ku-Klnx outrage. Now, 1 do
not pretend to deny that in some Instances

pursuits, wnon remonstrated witn lor
such conduct, instead of allowing tho plan-
tor to peacefully pursuo the oven tenor of
his way, tlicy attempt to nsvivo old sores,

bo that such men aro ordered to lcavo or

(;orn,!'pon.lf nco of Hip II11II.1I0 Courier,
Notwithstanding the declaration of the
coroner's Jury, that tho suicide of Dr,
Connolly and the murder ot his two chil
dren is attributable to an attack of ucuto
insanity, and the now well-known fuel
that th'o linfortunato man was subject to
attacks of this kind, it is still said by soiro
that intemperauco wu at tho bottom of all
tlio trnulo work. I havo conversed with
several persons who know Dr. Connolly
very well, and all repudiato tho as
sumption that ho was intemperate. Tlio
truo secret of tho tcrriblo act ho commit
ted could bo found in a quarter that has
not been explored. Many men arodrivm
to dcMieration by trouble with their wives,
and, from all that has been told me, I
judgo that Dr. Connolly was ono of them.
11 i m great part llio 01a story 01 marry
ing for monoy. Dr. Connolly married tho
daughter of a women who had amassed
much wealth, but wnoso social position
was low. Ho married her becauso sho was
likely to bring him monoy, and sho mar
ried him for his social auvantnges. 'ii.e
usunl and almost inevitable consequences
followed. Tho doctor, though in good
practice, was constantly made to foel that
110 was not tho financial head of his homo.
Ills wlfo when sho had bocomo his wife
proved to bo anything but an agrccablo
helpmate. Ulckorings woro ircquont bo
tween them, and tho wife, as stronghcaded
women cenoraliv do. mado their houso too
hot for domestic comfoit. Although thoy
had been married only a lew years an es
trangement had sprung up, and friends
began to nod their heads and say thoy
know how 11 wouiu no. 11 was not im
probable that tho want of feeling shown
by his wile aggravated tho nervous disor
der, from which thu doctor had frcnuontlv
sullerod, and brought on such a condition,
of mind thnt ho did not enre, as people,
often say, whether he died or not.
yet ho was not wholly without blnmo for
the domestic miseries ho endurtd. Ho
married a woman whoso characteristics
wore utterly unsuited to li is, mainly be
causo she had monoy. Yory soon after
tho marriage ho discovered that a great
mistuko had bcon made, but it was too lato
then lor a remedy. Tho tcrriblo tragedy
of Sunday ovoning was not a conscqucnco
of intern orance, but of tho error so often
mado of marrying to bo well oil". And
thoro nro hundreds of families in Now York
whoso.days aro rounds of irritating misery,
resulting from causes similar to that which
led Dr. Connolly to self-murder and tho
slaughter of hi children.
A WOlill IN TIIEIlt DIIKK.VSR.
"Among tho prejudices chorished by tho
masses against harmless animals, few aro
stronger than that felt almost universally
against bats, nrising probably from tho
simple fact that they aro childron of tho
night and forced to carry on their search
after food in tlio darkness. It may be,
howevef, that their peculiar hideounc!s
lias given addltiomil strength to tills feel
ing, for tho Jewish legislation already de
clared them unclean and accursed, and tho
Greeks borrowod their wings lor tlio har
pies, as Christians hnvo dono for the devil.
A poor lost bat need but 11 y into a room
rilled with comyany, and everybody is
frightened. Superstitious people tremble
at their mero presence as an evil omen,
and tho strong-minded amog tho fair ex
cuse tholr terror by a pretended fear for
tlio hair an apprhensiou which could be
well founded only if thuaeeoiin'.s of insects

wings, stretched out between enormously
lengthened fingers, liko tho silk of an tim
hcrolla between tho whalohono of thu
frame; tho ugly claws of their feet; tho
bnro appondages which frequently adorn
their noses und ears iu a most eccentric
manner; nn.l their perfectly iiolseles.alinost
sight, mysterious flight by touch, and not by
uiiiku tlfem unwelcome guests among men.
"And yet they aro real public boiiofactors.
When tlio llrst warm sun of spring arouses
them from tholr long winter sloop, which
they onjoy hanging by their hind foot,
head duwn, and tho wholo body carefully
wrapped up iu tho wide cloak of thoir
wings, they begin their night hunts. A
dozen fat beotlos hardly sullico for tho sup
per of a hungry member of ono variety,
and sixty or seventy houso-llics or ono of
another kind. All night long thoy pursuo
with Indefatigable onorgy ovory variety of
beetle and moth, of II v and bull, and enltiv
most of nil thoso which do the greatest inju
ry to our fruit-trees and cereals. Even
tho only really formidable niombor of thoir
raco, thu vanipiro, is much maligned, a
gigantic bat, accused of sucking tlio blood
of man and beast, it is strictly contlnod to a
small district in tho tropics, and even there
occiiib but laroly."
