OFFICAL JOU.RNAL

TUESDAY MORNING, JULY 17, losi.
RESPECT POE THE LOWLY.
Greatness never shows more great than ill
its respect for lowliness. For the noble to
admire and love the noble is praiseworthy;
but to bend their looks to their inferiors in
kind charity and respect, free from any show
of their own greater qualities and with the sole
and simple wish to do them good, is the sign
of lordlike and royal excellence of character.
When superiority is known it is always respec
ted by the inferior-tacitly or openly-not
always willingly and often in an envious way
yet it is recognized, respected and confessed
even by the envy it jwakens and the false
pride that it annoys. To look upward with
respect and reverence is natural and easy-it
I is the habit even of savages; to look downward
with respect is the lesson which high cultiva
tion only teaches and which magnanimous
minds alone can learn. Wise men and men of
high characiter know best that all they have is
a gilt, and they know best that their gift is
perishahli. They in their better light sec
best that the diifferevece between the best and
higl:,e.t and the most lowly is, after all, but
little. They who know much know best that
but little can be iknown, and in the dim light
of Eulmn.n reeason they do not scorn the ldeeper
shade.s ot the light which their inferiors
lispcet oand reverence for isuperiors within
ldue bounds and in just proportion to merit,
play an importact part in the machinery of
social and political systems. It is too com
mon and too natural to be classed as a virtue,
and elen among the rudest savages it
is the product of that latent sentiment of
worsicip which pervades our whole race. But
a kind, nmaguanimous, considerate regard for
inferiors, is a sentiment in all ways more ex
-alted and noble as it is more uncommon. To
look upward to superiors with respect, free
from envy and servility, and to look at the
same time to inferiors with thoughtful consid
eration ftr their rights, wants, tastes and feel
Sings, witlhout that condescension which is a
standing and offensive declaration of superi
ority, but in real earnest respect for whatever
good may be seen or developed, and with
T charity for faults and deficiencies, should be
the ainl and study ,f all thoughtful men, Only
a ftw possess this faculty of respect for what
is beneath as well as that which is above
their ,own grade, and the faculty when
Ips..seed is a badge of true nobility of char
acter. It is better than any talent or gift of
genius. better than any fessons of dry philos
E ophy, better than the polish of society, more
useful than all the precepts of courtesy.
more beneficent than wit and learning, and
more effective in reforming, elevating and
educating men than the wisdom of sages, the
songs of poets or the eloquence of orators.
The exercise of this faculty ennobles its
possessor while it draws others up to his own
level. It reforms. it purifies, it teaches, it
liberalizes. It cheers poverty, it lightens
misfortune, it dignifies labor, it cures discon
tent, it removes envy, it cultivates gratitude.
Its praise bestowed upon humble mer t stimu
lates to greater desert. It brightens and
,strengthens the golden chains of fraternity
and good will. It cultivates obedience to law
and reverence for authority, increasing the
happiness of the people and cementing the
fabric of government.
We hope that at the meeting of the council to
night, the streets and landings committee of the
board of assistant aldermen will report upon the
memorial from the projectors of the above men
tioned important enterprise. The fact that the
proposed road would be of almost incalculab'e
benefit to the Second District, is so patent, that it
cannot require a lengthy consideration to arrive at
all the points in the case, and as time is of the
greatest importance to the measure, we trust that
none will be lost.
Another consideration should influence the com
mittee in this matter. It is now aboutthe time for
the council to take its usual summer vacation, and
if there be any delay now, two valuable months
will be lost to the enterprising gentlemen who
have this important public work inl contemplation.
Whereas if it should be approved of by the coun
cil before its adjournment, the road could be com
pleted, at least to the bayou, by the time the fall
trade begins.
Houses convenient for residences for our busi
ness men are very scarce and high, and there are
hundreds upon the line of this proposed railroad
which now do not pay a living interest upon the
capital invested in them. If the council should
take immediate and favorable action on the memo
rial, these houses would be soon tenanted at gocd
rents; our increased population would be accom
modated with dwellings, and the city gain largly
in taxes on the increased value of the real estate
thus made productive. It is true all this would
occur if the matter were delayed six months or a
year; but as the city never was in greater need of
money than at present, this is a just and proper
means at command to increase the revenues al
most at once.
Finally, as the proposed public improvement
would injure no one, and infringe upon the rights
of no one; but would undoubtedly work bene
ficial for all, we trust it may be allowed to be put
in operation at the earliest possible moment.
" Iflt were done. when 'is done then t were wall
It were done quickly'
ACltOS THEn LAKE.-We are glad to see the an
nouncement made this morbing that the elegant
low-pressure side wheel steamer Emma, has been
put in the Lake trade, and will hereafter run as a
regular packet from the head of the Old Basin on
Toulouse street, to Mandeville, Lewisburg, Madi
sonville and Covington, leaving every Monday,
Wednesday and Friday at 10 o'clock A. M., and on
Saturday at 2 o'clock P. M. She will also make an
excursion trip to the same points every Sunday
morning at 9 o'clock, and return the same evening.
The Emma is commanded by our old friend Capt.
H. Marks, than whom no more accommodating or
efficient commander exists. She has been fitted
up lately, expressly for the Lake business, and her
accommodations are at once ample and comforta
ble. Her being in this trade will afford excellent
opportunities for the " stay-at-home clubs" to
take a little recreation, and for our efficient fire
men, whose duty preclude their absence from the
city for an extended trip, to enjoy an occasional
pionic amid the shades of the evergreens across
the Lake.
The following are the passengers by the steam
ship Sheridan, Capt. Bolton, from New York 7th
lost :
Mrs. A. C. BeOnnett and three children Wm . C. Robbins

Confederate e ead Burled near Rome, Ga.
In the ri-weekly Rome Courier, of the 10th,
we find a list of the Confederates buried in the
cemetery at that place. We copy from it the
names of the gallant dead from our own State,
as well as from Mississippi, Arkansas and
Texas. Such as may recognize names which
they cherish with honor and regret will be
pleased to learn that all the graves have been
neatly dressed and will soon he enclosed,
through the generous efforts of the ladies of
Rome and its neighborhood. May God bless
them for their kindly deeds !

lECcONSTRCTION AND RFRFESHMnNT.-We print
ed, Wednesday, a telegram from New )rleans an
nouncing a meeting of the members ol "the Coo
veoliuon of 1864," and their (pr,,bable) intention of
taking measures to have the new cosstitutonal
amendment adopted by an extra sesdon of the
leg islature.
This convention] of '64 was a fationlilfted into
power by Banks, and it is remembered chiefly for
its remarkable bills of something like $60,000 for
cigars, liquors, ltorse hire, and other legislative
neceesties and luxuries. The membeg, in addi
tion, voted themselves ten dollars pe: day each
for their services; nod these "loyal' Southerners,
mainly from Mfassaochusetts. Connedcticut, New
York, and other parishes of Louisiana,reeonstruc
ted the Constitualtiono of the hStte, opened two
bar-rooms adjoining their hall of sitting
sat for fifty or sixty days, and charged a round
quarter of a million, or more, for their services
snd refreshments. When they adjournet, it was
with the understanding that they should continue
this sort of thing occasionally, whenever there
was anynecessity for more reconstrucion or re
freshment. The opportunity now see s to offer
r in agitating tie adoption of the amendments, re
port and platform of the radical recorstruction
ists, As a preliminary movement they .at a del
egation to Washington to see how tar Congress
t would sustain them, and they now seen to have
received encouragement enough to whrrant the
re-opening of tihe conventional bar roans. It is
an attempt of an unscrupulous star chamber,
I treated byand under military authority, to resume
control of State matters, and so draw a few hun
dred thousand dollars for supposed serrices and
real refreshments.-[New York World.
Gem. Slherman says the Indians vill sign a
treaty with one hand and snatch a scap with the
t other.
It is said the Emperor of Brazl is tarticularly
partial to Americans.
- The Chicago Tribune declares the proposed
tariff bill "a pure scheme of plunder," and avers
that it will hold every Western memnbeh of Con

n defrauded constituents.
y THE GREAT MYSTERY.-The body is to die; so
Smuch is erain. What lies beyond? ro o4t who

The imagination visits the realm of shstaw--sent
out from some window in the soul over life's rest
less waters, but wings its way wearilyback, with
r an olive leaf i its beak as atoe of emerg
e- ing life beyond the closely hending hizon. The
st great sns comes and goes in tk heaven, yet
breathes no seret of the ethereal wilde'eses; she

The Salldes of MIss Lnermand.
We yesterday briefly noticed the suicide of Miss
Laureatme Lenormand, a lady twenty-seven years
of age, who shot herself on'Sunday afternoon, at S
the residence of her father, Mr. Augustine Aima
ble Lenormand, No. 64 Maine street.
The testimony taken before the coroner shows
that unwillingness of her father to sanction an en
gagement for marriage, which she had entered
into, was her reason for destroying herself.
The jury of inquest impannelled consisted of the
following gentlemen : C. E. Dceery, G. Gourlay,
F. P. Serin, A. Lejeune and A. A. Bourgeois.
Mtrs. Marie Comet, a lady who occupies part of
the house, in which Mr. Lenormand resides, testi- lit
fled: ei
Deceased was sitting in the room. She seemed
to he angry. Her father said to me: "Look at
Augustine, she seems to be mad with me." Be
then asked her to kiss him. She answered " no,
I am too angry." I then went into the yard and
a little while after he came to me and said she had
shot herself: ,Her father had always previously is
lived on good terms with her. The pistol with
which she shotdheruelf was taken from her father's
press.
Subjoined is the testimony of Margaret HIatto, d
a servant in the family: :r
At lhalf-pat two deceased told my child to call
Mr. Lenormand to dinner. He ate his dinner, but T
she did notdine with him. After dinner I was in 1
the rnm, doing some work, when she requested t
mysel and my child tolIave the room. I went
int thie yard, and immediately after heard a shot.
hen I returned and found her lying ou the floor, d
dead. and bathed in blood.
The evidence of Mr. Lenormand was as fol- t
My daughter wiohed to marry a certain person
agamnt my will, and to enable her to marry asked
me for tree thousand dlareet in gold, which I re
tuned. This was the caut e of her alger, and my
imprrcaion is was the reason she committed
suicide.
the deceased was a native of France. Her M
family come here many years ago. It is several
years ionce her mother died. She was a laundress,
and of such skill and taste in making up the fine
drapery of ladies, that she earned a very hand 5
some income by her labor. She placed a double
barreled pistol under her chin and fired both
barrels. The balls lodged in her brain and causede8
immediate death. Tile verdict of the coroner's
jury was in accordance with the evidence, that she
caime to lier death by suicide.
In noticing the death of Mr. Dolhonde yester-.
day, an error was committed in saying that the I.
gentleman had been a member of the house of
talrtin, Dolhonde & Cobb. The deceased was Mrt.
Alfred l olhnnde, of the firm of John S. Watts &
Co., whose demise is equally regretted as if his
worthy brother of the other house had fallen. d

[eom the Chtlieothe (YO.) Opettot , June 281
On Saturday evening last a murder wee com
mitted in the southwest part of our county, of
such a wicked and cold-blooded charaeter as to
make one's life-bloodcurdle andrefoee to dow,and
cause a chili of horror to ron through the entire
community. Silas Smith, a farmer df middle age,
and in good circunmstances residiug about seven
miles west of Dawn, and four miles south of
Mooresville, was murdered .in bhis own home in
cold blood on Saturday evening last, by three men.
or, rather, ruffians. - The ireumstanes, as far as
we could learn them, ihak this one of the most
barbarous murders on record-almost equal to the
murder of the Deeriog family.
From all that appears. Mr. Smith was murdered
for his money. He was known.ta have had several
hundred dollars of money for stock sold, and on
the day of his murder he had .been to Dawn to
receive $1,000 duehim there. One of the murder
ers saw him ond talked with him during the day.
Mr. Smith had got to his home in the afteraoos,
and had reclined upon the bed to recoverffrom his
fatigue. His wire was mihkig outide of the ia
closure,'a short dlstancd from thegate, and seer a
clump of timber or brush. Three men coming
from behind this clump passed her with threats
ran toward the gate, where one watatiUond, and
the two passed into the house. As they entered
they inquired for Mr. Smith of two little girls of
the family, who directed their attention to the
room.
On hearing the noise Mr. Stiih raled up, and
as they came to the bedroom he was sitting oa.nthe
side or the bed. The smaller of the two rssase
said, " We have yon now," and firedwitkbis pis
tol, and contined to fire four times, each time
striking his victim on the breast. He fell forward
on the floor, bruising his face very much, and soon
expired At the flirst shot the oldest of. the two
girs ran out screaming, and ran toward , neigh
ber's in sight. As she prosed out of the house,
one of the rffians stpped t the door and called to
3 the man at the gate, ' shoot hbs" when theruffina
fired but witho effect. The girl in about 11 years
of age. It s not known whether they got any
1 money, but it is supposed not. He kept no mosey .
about him, and his money taken for property wne
hidden away so securely thathis own fadsly do not
know where it is.
It is evident the Crufaine intended to osetlake
him on the way home, and get the meOey.a-te ex
clamation would indicate this-or come ass thin
eo ooin thant he would have no time to hide the
money. There is as yet no certainty as to the
murderers. Two of them were kileed by
being blackened. One wan not disgsPed. They
were stripped to shirt and pant,'and bareheaded.
SThe boy says he knows one of the mee tbked with
his father at Dawn. while Mrs. Smith say se well
knew one of the men,although at the time e wasn
blackened.
