JN0 S. REYNOLDS, ASmOCIATG EDITOR,
THE TENTH of May was observed
n many places as Memorial Day.
The services wore very impressivo.
JUDGE Boxn, in the United Stites
Court, has decided that York
. county must pay the railroad bonds.
THE METHODISTS and Baptists and
Episcopalians have boon holding
their annual meetings. Tho Epis -
copal diocese of this State has
adopted a canon preventing women
from voting in church meetings.
THE HOUSE oF iol)resontatives,
in Washington, was the scene of a
disgraceful squabble on Friday over
the question whether the Federal
government was responsible for the
treatment of prisoners at Ander
sonville. Of course it was ; but
that is no excuso for making a beer
garden of Congress.
THE APPARENr backing down of
Russia has heretofore seemed in
explicable. But now it has leaked
out that the Bogtun of Bhopal has
offered her entire force of live
thousand nako:l Sopoys to Great
Britain. The Czar could not face a
Begum, and especially the Begum
of Bhopal, so ho has incontinently
GEN. E. P. ALExANDER has been
elected president of the Georgia
Railroad, over Judge King, the
incumbent for thirty-six years, after
a most exciting contest. General
Alexander is but forty-three years
of age, but has mn:'lo his mark.
A native of Georgia, he graduated
with high honors at West Point.
He-was in command of the post at
Puget Sound when the war broke
out, but hastened home and entered
the Confederate service. By con
tinued promotions he becamo chief
of artillery of Lee's army. After
the war he served with great credit
as professor of mathematics in th e
P South Carolina University, but'
abandoned his chair when it fell
into Radical hands. iouco then he
has been engaged in railroading,
' being aLt the time of his recent
election, the president of the
Western Railrold, of Alabama.
General Alexander is a bro.ther-inm -
law of Judge Haskell and of the
Bev. WV. E. Boggs, formerly of this
place. His prospierity is gratifying
aliko to his old comuraides in
arms and to the students whom hie
led through the labyrinths of~
Descriptive Geometry, Conic See
S tions and Calculus.
Postpone the Convention.
Some members of the Democratic
Sparty are anxious to have a State
Convention called at an early date.
~. We are opposed to this for several
reasons. In the first place, thoe
campaign of 18T0, begioning in
SAugust, was long enough. The nor
vous pitch to which p)eople had been
Sbrought could not have been main
tained for a longer time, from sheer
Kphysical exhaustion. A campaign
~$beginning in May or June wvould bo
ruinous. The people need all the
time they can got to devote to their
~crops. They are not ready for
political work until laying-by time.
In the second place the people have,
4ot had time to decide upon their
standard bearers. While the re
nomination of the whole State
ticket, we are pleased to see, is
9 nost probable, still something may
rnup later in tho year requiring
41podocification of thme present policy,
.gaip,. the Congressional nomaina

SBtate Convention meets, and no

A mass meeting wafs bold in
Charleston on Friday night, to pro
test against the Acts recently passed
by the Legislature, giving to certain
corporations the exclusive right to
dig phosphates in certain rivers in
the State. Addresses were deliv
ered by Maj. G. Lamb Buist, of I
Charleston, Col. L. IV. Youmans, It
of Barnwell, and others. Resolu

neetint were :adopto, and a coin
tittee of ten w t pinted to me
morializo the Legislature, at its
next session, to repeal the Acts in
question, and leave the rivers free
to be dug into for phosphates by
all who may desire.
MOTHIER AND CHILD.
The Rev. Joseph Cook narrated
the following incidents recently in
the course of a sormon on the
influence of parents on their chil
There is a mother at a window.
Suddenly she sees at another win
dow the sash fall upon the fingers
of her own infant. Three fingers
drop. Three stumps are left.
They bleed before her. She cannot
assist the child. I am telling a
story out of Dr. Carpenter (Physi
ology, sec. 724), and not out of the
newspapers. A surgeon is called
in ; he attends to the infant ; binds
up its wounds, and then turns to
the mother, who sits moaning and
complaining of a pain in her fingers.
Within twenty-four hours three of
her fingers, corresponding to those
cut off from the hand of the infant
begin to swell, become inflamed,
and need to be lanced. They go
through the whole process of
wou nds, although perfectly unhurt,
except by imagination. Are we
fearfully and wonderfully made?
But that infant was farther off
from its mother than it once was.
Here is a carpenter in a peasant's
house ; he is set .upon. by a soldier.
I tell this story out of Von Ammon.
("D'e Ersten Mutterphlichten und
die Este Kindespflego." See also
Carpenter, sec. 723.) The mother's
babe lies in the crad!c ptlying dur
ing the fight.. It understands
nothing of the fracas ; laughs,
crows, while its father is inc the
peril of death The mother at first
stands petrified with' terror. At
last she rushes between the com.,
b.ltants, seizes the sword of the
soldier, breaks it in pieces across
her knee. The neighbors rush in,
take the soldier into custody, and
the mother in her excitement
snatches- up her healthful child and
gives it natural food. In five
minutes the child dies of poison,
Although previously perfectly well.
