Neither section docs even approximate

part of it from the siucerest convictions:
nor was lie the implacable loe of the re
united public that he has so long been
regarded in the North.
The death ot Jefferson Davis removes
at once and forever the irritation that

We clip the following from the Negro
World, a pajicr published in Knoxvillc
by a colored editor, who is always con-
ervative and fair. The sentiments ex
pressed are generous, and worthy of
h appreciation :
L'tTcrson Davis, the venerable sage of
the Southern Confederacy, is no more.
lie died yesterday morning at t o'clock.
Thus closes the life of one of the most
remarkable men of this century.
Jefferson Davis was born June 3. 1SII8.
in Todd county, Ky. His father soon
afterward moved to Mississii where
the family has remained ever since. Mr.
Davis has had a checkered life, full of
tunning incidents ami narrative scenes.
Although the mass of peojile in the
I nited Suites did not believe in the
doctrines advanced by Davis, yet no
man dare say that he was not sincere
and honest in his convictions regarding
the confederation of the southern states.
He was courageous, bold and manly,
showing no cowardice in his heart when
confronted by an enemy.
While we have never liked the position
assumed by Mr. Davis, yet the watery
grave has abandoned our antagonism,
ami we reverently bow to his ashes.
May he rest from his labor and finally in
the great beyond meet God in peace.
