"MY COUNTRY, 'TIS OF WEE."

This canting hypocrlto may dorlvo
somo satisaction from the condition of
things bo eulogizes, but decent and In
telligent American citizens, forming a
vast majority of tho wholo, regard it as
an advance in demoralization that
Dromlses to sneedllv onsulf all that has
distinguished us as a proud and enlight
But that condition of equality of which
this canting Puritan prates, does not ex
1st. It a whlto man Is unfortunate, is
unable to find work, is smitten down
uy sickness or comes to want In any
other way, he must go to tho poor houso
or starve! If a negro U lazy and rofuscs
to work, his wants aro provldod for; ho
is one of "the wurds of the nation," and
must uc red aim ciollicd at tiio expense
of the public treasury! This is radical
equality! An "equality" that provides
for tho idle black man and lets the
hard-working white man starve, is the
equality that commands New England
Since the negroes have becomo "tho
wards of the nation.;" since a black-skin
serves as a ticket of admission to the af
factions and good olllces of tho radical
party; since to bo a negro Is to command
the favor of Conre and tho adminis
tratlon, the question suggests itself:
Why Is It that all tho nasty niggers of
Haytl stay down thero cutting each oth
er's throats? Why not coma hero and
bo "wards of the nation." Wo havo
the authority of the Now York 'Day-
JJook' for saylug Miut ono negro who
was a citizen uf Itayu less than two
years ago, Is now holding otllco uudor
Grant. When such distinguished hon
ora aro ranted to darkles in this country,
we -wonder that all tho snake-worship
ping nljrgers of Africa do not pour Into
our borders. Yos, this is to bo the grand
Eldorado of niggers. Our country la
evermore to be tho sympathising breast
on which all darkles can lay their ach
log heads. They need wait for no long
delayed naturalization papers. They
have only to walk up to Captain Grant's
office and take their choloo of berths. O,
this is "Afrio's happy land;" provided
that the white men do not, by and by,
make up their minds that the thing has
gono arenough, and set themselves to
making earthquakes beneath tho feet of
II darkies and their white-faced part
ners in the business of barbarizing tlie
country. Suoh a thing may come; aud
nothing else will save us from tho fate of
Mexico, and all other God-abandoned
holes whore white mon aud uugrocs bur

MURDERED BY A NEGRO.
The tieatu or Dr. ueujatnin Ayer, a
membor of the Georgia legislature, has
a i ' .... . ' . . . .
uoen cnargou to tuo account, or tne ku-
kluxos. To tho' intense chagrin of
radical rebel-haters however it turns
out that Ayer Was murdered for his
money by ono of "the wards' of tho na
tion.1' Since this fact has developed
Itself the murderer of Ayer, .takes a dlf-
feront phaze, in radical estimation,
altogether. "Tho poor negro was no
doubt In nood of money and aluoe we
reflect that for 230 yf or hit race has felt
the chains of slavery, why not pity in
stoad of blumi him." , a
Tho following are tho ptrtlculaH;
Or. Benjamin Ayer, a momber of tho
Georgia Legislature, was found dead
near Louisville, Georgia on Wednesday
last, .idiot through M head, It. trau-v
spires that ho was killed by a, negro
named Wilson, who robbod tho body of
about four hundred dollars in mouoy
aud a pistol, Ayer reached Louisville'
in tho. morning and went to tho houso of
a negro named Sherman and ondoavored
to iget board. It' being refused him ho
went to another npgro named Holt, who
also rofusod, At the houso of Holt, Ayor
left an ovorooat, and then weut uway.
Soon after dark ho returned anil got his
coat. Ho was then in oompany with
this nogro Wilson.. Wilson was exam
ined as soon as arrested, when tho
pUtol and $230, of Uio property of tho
murdered man were found on his person.
WHYXIE GOES TO SPAIN.
Newsmongers aro Indulging in specu
latlons as to why Sandford was trans
ferred from tho Belgium mission to that
rt I n ,
oi opain. uno report says that It Is so
becauso ho knew how to mako lnflucn
tial friends on this aide of tho water with
nice llttlo diplomatic remembrances of
wines, bijouterie, kickshaws and fancy
bagatelles. But the most satisfactory
reason assigned takes this ahapo: When
tho Spanish General Trim was an exllo
In Belgium Sandford saved him from Is
abella's clutches, which wero, at that
time, Itching to press his bronchial ap
paratus; and Prim, in return for this
very acceptablo service, promised .that
when tho star of him (tho aforesaid
Prim) should bo In tho ascondaut In
Spain, why then ho would sell Cuba to
tho United States. Now Sandford is
chosen to hold Prim to his promise.
Mcan'imo tho important question Is still
unsettled whether Cuba belongs to tho
revolutionists of Spain or to the revolu
tionists of tho island, and so lt may bo
wisely considered inexpedient to pay
roundly to-day for a piece of proporty
which to-morrow wo may get for noth
ing, Sandford or no Sandford.
Tho Sew York Herald' says:
The Chicago 'Tribune' puts the 'whole
matter of western train transportation
in a nutshell when It says "the question
is simpiy a matter or expense, IT grain
can be brought to Chicago from St. Louis
and delivered in New York for less
money than it can be by tbo wav of
New Orleans and tho ocean, not a bushel
would ever go down tho river; while If
grain can.be taken more cheadv from
Chicago to New York via St. Louis' and
sitsw Orleans, It will tro that wav." This
Is a practical way of stating the case.
w, eminently practical, provided the
aggregation of weatern grain in New
York ia an abaoluto necessity. But such
happens not to be the case. The quae-.
tion is "simply a matter of expense."
but it takes thit ehape:' Can the grain of
the northwest b collected at St tLoula,
mainly by water, and shipped frem
tbence, every mile of the diatance by
water, to Liverpool, cheaper than it can
be collected la Chicago, by rail, and
hipped tbence by rail to New York and
tbence by vesael to Liverpool? In other
words, la water transportation cheaper
than railroad transportation? If it la
