and the old gentleman became a lit- h

failed to come up. lie became still a
more impatient, and began to mop t
his face with his handkerchief, and t
use blasphemous language.
--Isn't that other car ever going to t
come ?" asked the old gentleman, n
raning out his neck. a
--What ar4 you in such a hurry e
about ?" asked the driver, who was t
as placid and calm as a piece of

and I'm behind time. If this car
Joesn't hurry ua and take me, there 1
will be trouble," and once rdore he I

the manner of a mud turtle.
"Do you know why the driver of a
that down-car is behind time ?" r
"No, I don't." s
"Well, you see he is a married man, c
too. and his wife makes him stop his a
car and get his dinner, and if he i
doesn't do it she raises thunder. If t
lie were to come right on without stop- t

As it is, your wife is mad and his is f

Just then the other came up, and a
few mir.utes later the old gentlemain
jumped off near a gate, at which a
determined-looking woman, wearing
a' sunbonnet, seemed to be on guard.

FITZHUGH LEE'S TRIBUTE
NIE SAYS TILE NoITIf ANDsoUTII .\LE IE
UNITED) FOREVER.
(Fiomi the New York IHeral.,
Not alone to the fact that lie is a
nephew of General R;ohert E. Lee.
- but Lo the recollection of his gallan
h try, was it due that Gen. lFitzhugh
Lee, now Democratic candidate for
Governor of Virginia, became a cen
tre of interest. Of Indiuin height
and broad buld, rugged cheeks and
courtly manner, he was the picture
of an American man. Words would
not answer him to express his satis
faction at the warm reception given
him and his fellow Southerners at
the hands of the North. lie said that
when he was riding in the funeral
procession with Gen. Gordon as an
aide to Gen. Hancock. he was filled
with emotion upon seeing a picture
of Gen. Grant with the inscription
below: "Let them have their horses;
they will need them for their crops."
~ That line brought Apponattox
back to me like sonic sad dream,"
said Gen. Lee to a Herald renorter.
"It was a touching coincidence. Gen.
Gordon and I were the two remain
ing corps commanders of the three
who were with Gen. Lee when Grant
gave utterance to that maguanimous
sentiment. Gen. Gordon saw the in
scription the same moment that Idid
and our eyes instinctively met as we
rode by. I don't know what Gen.
Gordon felt. I was ready to use my
handkerchief. You can't imagine
what those words implied. In the
Confederate army every man had to
supply his own horse, while in the
Union army everything was supplied
by the Governiment."
General, what do you think this
demonstration means ?" asked the
reporter, referring to Gen. Grant's
funeral.
"It means that the Union is now
more firmly and inseparahly united
than it was twenty years before Bu.
chanan's Administration. The war
was the inevitable culmination of dif
ferences that had to be settled by
blood. Before the war there was al
ways talk of breaking up the Union
and secession, whenever any issue
was brought up for national arbi ra
tion, and the South would invariably
threaten secession if her whims were
not gratified. Of course. immediately
after the war, wounds were fresh and
there was little show of any disposi
tion for reconciliation. But, notwith
standing this fact, a reconciliation
would have been effected had it not
been for the policy of the Adminis
tration succeeding Mr. Lincoln's.
The Government then sent men down
South to rule us who were unprinci
pled and unfair, and the colored man
was placed in our Legislatures to
make laws for us. This was too se
vere a transformation, and the South
felt that she was being belittled. It
was putting the bottom rail of the
fence on top. The people got so they
didn't take any interest in the Gov
ernment nor the country. Any insig
nificant little carpet-bagger would be
sent down there and boosted into
Congress, and our own men would
be thrust in the shade. I am a strong
Democrat and talk strong Democrat
ic principles, and I'm going to add
that this was done for no other pur
pose than to perpetuate the Republi
can party in power.
"But now, God be praised, all that
is gone by. That was the work of
-politicians, and the South has found
out that the people of the North
the body of the people I mean-had
no hand in it. Old issues are eradi
cated in the South now. The colored
-man is no longer regarded as an
usurper, and he feels that he will not
be returned to slavery. We don't
want men to represent us whlo will
constantly wave the bloody shirt.
The people have come to love the
- North for the grand, magnanimous,
Sfraternal treatment they have re
- ceived since the war, and they have
i been longing for this grand opportu
a nity, which has at last been afforded,
t to express their hearty good will for
I the Union. No man has done more,
S- and neither has any circumstance
-nor series of circumstances, to propi
tiate the feelings of the South and
e bring about this grand millennium,
i than 6-en. Grant. The sufferings of
a Gen. Grant awakened the sympathy
of the whole South, and the whole
I South is glorying in the treatment its
t old commanders are receiving. Just
think of it. Here are Gen. Buckner
and Gen. Johnston and Gen. Gordon
and Gen. Wade Hampton and my
Lself, all Rebel leaders, being made
t. the lions of your city, and we are all
-overfiowing;with gratitude in return.

TEXAS SKETCHES.
At one time during the war Bob
Beasly and myself were chums and t
friends. We urank from the same 1
yanteen. and both of us where ar
-ested together whlc skinning a hog i
;hat had got lost in the woods. t
I was otherwise under some slight
>blig;ations to B3easly. lie saved my
ife at the siege of Indianol:a. 'exas, I
n 1863. A large cannon ball passed t
liagonally throughl my body while t
ve were getting away from a Federal 1
attery. I would certainly have per
shed if Beasly had not. at the risk of s
iis life, carried n to a place of safe- c
v on his horse. And yet I subse
luently forbade him to speak to y
ne.w
My reason for breaking friendship b
tith l3easly was a very simple one.
discovered that he was not truthful, a
f there is anything in the world I t
etest it is an untruthfu' man. I- l
on't mind a friend becomingin mod- y
rately intoxicated occasionally. I
an even over:ook loss of memory on
he part of a friend who forgets to S
av back small sums of money he
iy have borrowed, but for the man
-o wilfully exaggeCrates I have no r
ubsequent use. Strictly truthful my- n
elf-never indulging in the slight- b
St deviation from veracity-I can
ct tolerate lying in at friend. e:
I first began to suspel"t Beasly of tc
ing one day in camp. when he told ti
queer story about a meteor chasing ul
i. in broad daylight around a barn, p
nd following him up a tree and s<
cross a creek ; but I thought perhaps o
iat was only his careless way of w
lling the story. '
One day while we were discussing a
e intelligence of the ditTerent ani- Ili
mils. and I had told him a story d
bout a hunting dog I owned that u
ould imitate the call of the wild 1;
irkey, lie said :o
"Alex. did I ever tell you about t
iat tame crab I owned in G alveston. o
efore the war ?'' b
"No, you never did. that I renem- e
Pr.,r
Swcn.. before I owne'd that crab '1
sed to think that dogs were intelli- to
ent, but that crab laid over them u
11. One day I was seated on a log o
ear the beach at Galveston, when jL
omething gave me a dreadful pinch S
n the leg. and I saw a crab as big ci
s a soup plate hurrying toward the 'T
rater. I headed him off. At first I S
ouig.t I would kill him on the spot, t
ut on reflection 1 tied lim up in my e
andkerchief and took him home, for t
was partial to boiled crab." t
"Whiat sort of a crab was it ?"'
-It was apparently. an ordinary s
rab. When 1 got him home I told y
usai-that's my wife's name-to t
Irop him into a pot of boiling water r
id have him for supper- When the e
rab heard me say this he held up e
i claws. as if b)egging for life."
"O, pshaw !"'
"I thought so, at least, so I said to
musan: 'Let him live. I can do
ithout crab to-night.' And then I
-ou should have seen the p)oor crea
tire frisk around and wag his all I
rith gratitude-just like a dog. iIe
ras so grateful that from that time
m he would go out in the yard every
norning, and bring me in the morn
g paper from where the carrier boy
ad thrown it."
"Look here, Beasly !~
"Fact. I assure you. I believe I
ould have taught that crab to shave
ne, it was so intelligent and willing.
Alen I went down town of an even
ng to play a game of billiards, I
vould take him along, and lie amused
he people to see him play with me.
)ne evening i forgot to take Bar
holomew along. We used to call
iim Bartholomew. I was busy mak
ng a run at the billiard table, when
felt something pull at my p:mts, I
nd looking down. there I saw Bar
holomew. As I afterwards learned,
e had been to every billiard saloon
n Galveston looking for me."
1 didn't say much. I could not
1elp thinking that Beasly was exag
;erating a little, so I said:
"Beasly, sooner or later you will tell
lownright lies, if you don't put on
he brakes.'
-I might do that if I waro~t care
'ul to confine myselt to facts," he
eplied; ' but you will be astonished
wheni I tell von how Bartholomew
~ollowed me to Houstor'.
"Why, Houston is fifty miles from
3 alvestoa"
"I know it. Just before I left I
saidl to my wife : -Susan, I am go
.ng to hIouston this' afternoon; be
:arefu to shut up Bartholomew; or
ie wilt follow me. Shte said she
would lock him up, so I went on to

n As she drove up to the church the
Princess Beatrice looked sad and un
e comfortable. while her eyes were
i much swollen. The Qneen, in all her
f niagniticence, gave one the impres
1 sion of a fond and foolish mother who
was sacrificing her only child. The
s Queen is quite gray, but her fact
e looks well. Prince Henry is one of
the hancdsomic-st of men. superbly
r healthy and soldi-r-like in his ap
y pearance, and has . rare charm of
expression. and he took the greatest
t pains to smile and nod.to the crowd.
The Princess seemed.to be madly in
love with him and. du-ring the drive
from the church. she had eyes only

seemed very fair and buxom in her

Sani Jones' Wife.
Rev. Sam Jones preached here to
night from the 9th chapter of Zacha
riah. 12th verse : -Turn to the
threshold, ye prisoners of hope; even
to day I declare " ill render double
pay unto y,u." Among the many
noticeable points made was that in
which he had said : "You have seen
an old dog jump into the yard where
scrans of bred and meat lay in pro
fusion, and he would pick up an old
bone. ju'np over the fence, lay down
and growl." The discourse was one
series of witticism, original utteran
ces and humorous sayings. About
1,400 people came to hear Rev. Sam,
but only about 800 could get into the
house. Mr. Jones married Miss Laura
McElwain, deceased, who lived about
three and a half miles Northeast of
c Eminence, where her mother still re
sides, and whose guests the family of
Mr. Jones are and have Leen for the
past two weeks. A gentleman asked
his wife a few days since if she was
not proud of her husband. She re
plied that she would rather Ud SM
d Jones's wife than to be the wife of
the President.-From au Eminence.
