THE TERRV MATTER.
There will be very wide differences of
opinion upon every transaction that ex
cites public interest. Such arc inevitable,
as such things present themselves to rea
son, to passion, to prejudice, or to in
formation received. Such a one was the
recent assault upon Judge Field, and the
slaying of his assailant by Marshal Na-
We took the position from which we
do not recede, that the assault, an aggra
vated and outrageous one, was presuma
bly precedent to a deadly, long cherished
purpose, and that the anticipation of that
deadly purpose by the protector ol Judge
Field was proper and justifiable, some
of our contemporaries ridicule the idea
that a judge or any other government of
ficial should resort to the royal shield ol
a body guard. If such practice were an
idle, ostentatious ceremonial, it would Ik-
offensive to the simplicity of republican
institutions, and a rebuke to that sense
of safetv secured by those institutions,
There is a tacit loval recognition of the
principle that every official moves about
freelv and safely liehiiid the shield ot tin-
dignity and sanctity of his position, and
has nothing to fear from from individual
or popular anger for the frank, fearless
discharge of his duties. It is this senseof
sccuritv that gives courage and confi
dence to the bench in decisions made
while unavoidably affecting the interests
of individuals. Conscious of his judicial
integrity, and fortified by his confidence
in the riuht construction ol tlie law,
Judge Field fearlessly made a decision be
might had modified it lie Had sin
ftreil himself to fear the extreme
of personal vengeance to which he ex
posed himself. That such vengeance was
imminent he had full reason to appre
hend. When advised to arm himself, be
took a view that might commend itscll
to those who denounce him for owing his
defence and bis life to the arm of another.
He said that when the time arrived that
a judge of the supreme court of the
United States had to arm himself to re-
oel the assaults of nersonal ruffian vio
lence aimed in rebuke or revenge for de
cisions made by the court in discharge ol
duty, then the time had come when the
government had reached its point of dis
solution, as incapable of being carried on
under the principles upon which it was
Hut Judge Field did need protection,
and the government gave it to him in
the person of one who knew the man
with whom he had to deal. The charac
ter of Terry was not unknown to him
and his purpose to wreak vengeance on
ndge Field at the first opportunity was
a matter ot punnc notoriety, u juoge
Field had lcen killed by Terry, as would
probably have been the end of an unre
sisted encounter, tnen juarsnoi .vigic

glc and uphold Terry on sectional
grounds. Iiecausc some of the Northern
papers arc inexorably hostile to the South
retentive of all the hateful memories of
the past, vindictive and unforgiving in
their memories, it docs not justify
Southern papers in meeting them
also on the same ground. We know what
to cxiKTt from the malignity of such pa
pers as the Mail and Express, if it de
lights such journals to recall and gloat
over the dark days of a past era. If they
do not forget them, it is hardly wise
to hold them in retaliatory mem
ory to the extent of elevating such anian
us Terry to the high post of Southern
champion and Southern exponent. Surely
we can find higher ideals than he. If he
wercjudged only by the Broderick transac
tion, if that deadly encounter alone-stood
recorded against him, the enthusiasm and
iniwtuusity of youth, the lawlessness
of the times, the sentiments of the com
munity might plead extenuation. An after
life of (uict eaccfulncs8 and virtue would
have effaced all recollection of a deed of
violence for which he might plead
occasion and custom. His after life was
not such, and he has no claim for sympa
thy in his violent taking off because he
was a "Southern gentleman." We are
mistaken if the South accept any such
Since writing the above, we find in the
New Orleans Picayune an editorial on the
same topic. The Picayune is a reprcsen
tative journal, Southern and its opinions
carry some weight.
We make the following extracts
"Apparently, the most obvious way in
which the matter presents itself for con
sideration is, that a member of the high
est judicial tribunal in the nation had. bv
no spiteful or vindictive personal act, but
in tlie plain discharge ot omcial duty, in
curred the hot resentment of a man no
toriously dangerous and desperate, with
a record already stained with blood.
This person bad threatened to kill the
judge at the first opportunity. The
judge by the necessities of his duties was
forced to appear in localities where he
ran a serious risk of meeting the self-proclaimed
avenger. For the protection of
the judge a marshal had been detailed bv
Attorney General of the United States
to travel wnn ana ciena irK memoer ot
the high court in the discharge of his
duty. The dreaded assailant appears
upon the acene and makes a violent at
tack on the justice. It might or miht
not have been intended as a deadly on
slaught. What was the marshal to do
in the premises ? Under the cir
cumstances, the act was excusable. If
Judge Field had been murdered in the
premises, public opinion would never
have excused Marshal Naele. The mar
shal protected his charge and killed the
assailant, Terry, rulmc opinion will
excuse, it not justify the officer. When
ludgcs ot courts ore to le murdered by
any disappointed litifj.-int, then our civil
ization is a failure, and our social system
is simply savagery.
Speaker Carlisle, accompanied by his
wife, is making the tour of Mexico, and
is welcomed everywhere with a distinc
tion seldom accorded to Americans. We
arc not familiar with Mexican diplomatic
habits, and arc therefore pleased to
hear that Speaker Carlisle was a partic
ipant of the finest State dinnerevcr given
in Mexico to foreign representatives. It
is especially remarkable as having Iieen
given to an American, Mexican pride,
which is Spanish pride, is tenacious and
unforgiving when wounded; and Mexico
has never forgiven the United States for
indicting the humiliation of defeat upon
her any more than Spain has forgiven
Mexico for achieving its indi'icndcncc.
At the dinner aforesaid there was the
usual hob-nobbing of such occasions, and
much interchange of friendly words and
wishes, the sincerity of w hich remains to
Ik proved. Hut what Mr. Carlisle said
among other things is true, lis said
to his entertainers, "we do not want
vour tcrntorv, but we do want vour
trade, ami vour friendship," Of Mexican
territory, we ought, for modesty's sak
to ask no more; we have Texas, New
Mexico, Arizona and California, by pur
chase or by conquest. Hut we can lion

The knoxvillc Journal of the l'Jth
brings information of the death of cx-
(iovcrnor John C. Hrown, of Tennessee.
The Journal accompanies the notice of
the death with the following manly and
liberal sentiments, magnanimous utter
ance from a political opponent: "He
was a partisan, a democrat among dem
ocrats, and supported democratic men
and measures with all the energy of his
impulsive nature; but no such thing as
hatred of those with whom he differs,
ever rankled in his breast. He was too
warm hearted and broad minded for
that. 1'olities never entered into his
social life. He met his republican friends
with the same hearty grasp of the hand
as he did his democratic friends, and no
one felt any reserve in his magnetic pres
