EMPORIA, FRIDAY, NOV. 12, 1880.
Wo welcome Kansas City to tbe Re. publican ranks. Bbe polled 7,781 votes. of which 4,009 were fur Garfield, 8,380 for Hancock, and 320 fur Weaver. The Chinese are going. Eleven bun. drcd left the other day. They certainly hare our consent to go, and we shall not mourn if tbey forget to come back. We are glad General Hancock baa tbe good sense to put bis big fool square down on the schemers and conspiritors In New York. What will be tbe next thing to engage their valuable attention it is bard to tell. Was there ever a case before, since tbe foundation of tbe government,' where a inan was at tbe same time a member of congress, U. 8. senator-elect and presl dent-elect f These are tbe honors to-day enjoyed by James A. Garfield, who was, a few years ago, a driver of a canal boat, lie ia a model of what America can do for a man. It must be a matter of consolation to tbe Irishmen of Kansas that while their countrymen across tbe briny deep are in a state of constant turmoil, subjected to severe oppression at tbe bands of tbe land owners, their only cause for mourn ing here is the failure to elect General Hancock president and the adoption of tbe constitutional amendment. It will be in order now for Garfield and Arthur to commence suit against tbe newspapers which have been publishing those fearful pictures of the Republican candidates. The Inter-Ocean of the 0th bas cuts of them which one would take for representations of a couple of pirates or highwaymen. Really we should have expected something better from that stal wart sheet. Solon Robinson, the long time agri cultural writer of the New York Trib- une. died at his home in Jacksonville, 71a.. last Wednesday morning. He was born in Tolland, Conn, October 21, 1803. In 1853 Mr. Robinson published a pleas ing story entitled "Hot Corn ; or. Life Scenes in New York," which reached ale of 50.000 copies. He was also the author of several other works. The solid south is being beard from. A prominent southern Democrat, now in Chicago, says: "If I bad my way 1 would cast tbe 138 electoral votes of the south solid for Garfield, and make the thing unanimous. Our alliance with the northern Democrats gives them all tbe ha'pence and we get all tbe kicks. We have done all we promised politically. but our northern party associates have sold us out or betrayed us. Tbe north ern Democrats always con mi It their in terests and I am in favor now of the south consulting hers." Many of the leading naDcrs are expressing similar opinions, and there is some prospect that tbe south is awuking to its own true interests at last. SOME OFFICIAL FIGURES From various source wegleun officlul returns u the vole in 63 or the coun ties of this state. In these the vote for Garfield is 02,476; for Hancock. 43,524; for Weaver. 14,073. Garfield over Han cock, 48,053; over both, 34,880. For governor, St. John has 87,037 ; Ross. 47.770 ; Vrooman. 13.001. St. John runs behind Garfield 5,139, and Rons runs ahead of Hancock, 4,255. St. John over Ross, 39,258; over both 25,357. Of the 55 counties 22 are in the Third congressional district acd the vote on congressman is as follows: Ryan, 33.660; McDonald, 13,064; Mitchell, 7,479. Ryan over McDonald, 19,506; over both, 13,117. NEW The air bas been mors, during the YORK. filled with silly ru- past few days, that New York was that It had given doubtful, and majority of five thousand for Hancock. There were several Democrats foolish enough to be lieve these absurd stories. Tbe only question about New York is the size of the majority it has given for Garfield. Tbe World, (Democratic,) puts it at 15,. 000; the Sun, (Democratic J at 20,000; tbe Herald, (Independent,) at 20,000; the Tribune (Republican,) at 23,000; and the Times, (Republican,) at 33,000. It is certainly as much as 15,000, and may reach 23,000. Probably 20,000 will be about the correct figures. STARTLING FIGURES. James Redficld has been making study of homicide In this country and published the results of bis Investiga tions recently. The most startling revelation of the volume is the preva lence of homicide in the southern states. Texas takes tbe lead in this matter. There have been 7,000 murders commit ted there in 15 years. The record is that in Texas alone in 1878 there were more bomicldes than in Maine, New Hamp shire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, Pennsyl vania, Minnesota, and Michigan (aggre gating a population of 10,000,. 000), all combined. In South Caro lina, during the sume year, popu lation something over 1,000,000, the homicides exceeded thoso of eight north ern states, with a population of 6,000,000. In Kentucky, in the same year, popula tiou in the neighborhood of 1,500,000, there were more homicides thau in the entire six New Englaud states, plus Michigan and Minnesota, contuiuing a population of 10,000,000. This execs slve taking of life, which is steadily kept up in the soulh, is declared to be larger than in any quarter of the globe. Mr. Ited fluid does not claim that these bomicldes have generally HUV direct connection with politics, but are mainly due to the defective educatiou and civili ration, to vhich theitlmobtuiiiversaland intemperate use of liquor might be su. pc rod Jed. "WHO HAS THE POPULAR VOTE? The Democratic paper are already aetling up the claim that Hancock re ceived the popular vote of the country at the late election. Tbe following table shows that this claim cannot be sustain ed. Notwithstanding the fact that in a large portion of the south, the portion of the country under the control of the Democratic party. Republicans ctiniwt vote tbeir sentiments, Garfield lias tbe popular vote by a large majority, as the following table of approximate state majorities proves : Xit). Ifamcoct.

RATHER FAST. The Commonwealth of Sunday bad a "scare crow" for the liquor dealers, an- tating that tbe prohibitory amendment passed last Tuesday and went into effect at six o'clock that day. "This is tbe view," it says, "taken by tbe best law yers." We will venture tbe assertion that neither the Commonwealth nor it best lawyers even know yet whether the prohibition amendment has a majority of tbe votes of tbe stale or not. If it baa a majority, we suppose it will take some official count to determine that fact, and some official declaration will probably be necessary before the amend. ment is of full force. We are no lawyer, but it baa been tbe common belief in this part ol tbe country that some legis lation, would be necessary under this new part oi the constitution to put its provisions in force, and to fix some penalties tor its violation. Whether it is eorrect or not, it is true, nevertheless, that if a suit were brought now under the amendment it would de volve on the prosecution to show that the amendment had been adopted, which it certaintly could not do. We have no doubt at all but that tbe amendment has been carried, and in view of this we believe it will be as well for liquor dealers to "put their houses in order." THE AMENDMENT.

WESTERN GROWTH. A writer in Hradstreet's draws a very interesting and striking picture of the strides which have been made by the western states upon the impulse of rail way development. He show that these ten Slates, operating more than forty thousand miles of railroad, and upon which they last year cleared net profits of nearly ninety-three millions of dol lars, have in a few years sprung into their present splendid condition of pros perity and power solely through the agency of their abundant and perfectly appointed system of transportation. Be fore they inaugurated in earnest the building up of that system their fortunes were stagnant. Their industries lan guished for want of market, immigration had ceased and progress was unknown. The people merely existed. Their crops rotted in the fields or were so heavily taxed en route to the market as to repre sent no profit to tbe producer. With the era of railways not simply trunk lines, but the network of feeders and tributaries with which Ohio, Idianna and Illinois are literally enveloped with that era came the tre mendous awakening and that process of growth and expansion and development which stands to-day without parallel in history, the wonder of the civilized world. Immigration poured in by a thousand ceaseless streams, the forests and the prairies changed as if my. magic into smiling fields; factories, workshops, towns and cities started up in the night, as it were. In the brief space of thirty years the assessed values of these ten states have advanced from $900,000,000 to $5,500,000,000 more than 500 per cent of increase! FREAK OF A MAD MAN. A press letter from Berlin, Germany, of October 23, gives tho following par ticulars of an encounter with a lunatic in that city : One day last week as the insane pa tients of the great charity hospital at Berlin were taking their accustomed ex ercise in the gardens of that establish. ment, under the supervision of several attendants, one of them, a lunatic cabdriv er of herculean strength, contrived to slip away from bis companion and to clamber up the trunk of a huge elm tree. Having reached one of the top most limbs and armed himself with a stout branch, which he snapped asunder as easily as though it had been a mere twig, he announced, in stentorian ac cents, his intention of "staying there forever." In vain did the perplexed wardens alternately coax and threaten him; be laughed at their blandishments aud defied their menaces. No one dared to attempt his capture by force, so, after a couple of hours had elapsed, the medical authorities, having obtained per. mission from the district lieutenant of police, summoned to their assistance a detatchnieut of the fire brigado and an engine, which forthwith commenced to play upon the deranged gymnast. Hav ing drenched him for a ten minutes' spell, the fireman summoned him to a parley, but could get nothing out of him save a fantastic and lughflown speech of thanks for their refreshing "attentions." Another and still more protruded deluge proving equally inef fectual in inducing him to descend, the wardens aud policemen resorted to friendly negotiations, and their persua sions at length moved the triumphant madman to declare that if they would pay homage to his gymnastic skill and heroic endurances by three rounds of en thusiastic applause, he would come down. His terms were promptly accept ed, and he descended to terra firm a amid tho vehement plaudits of policemen. warden and firemen, thus honorably capitulating after a siege of five hours and a half of duration. A SETTLER. The Snpraaae Court mm Comet? Printing. Topeka Dally Commonwealth, Nov. t. The supreme court, at its session yes terday, traversed the whole field of pub lic county printing, and as the subject is one of great interest to county officers, and publishers of newspapers, we have taken the trouble to examine the opin ions just filed and herewith produce tbe conclusions of that tribunal of its inter pretation and construction of the statutes relating to tbe publication of legal ad vertisements. Ia the case of Wren & Clawson vs. the board of county commissioners of Nemaha county, to recover statutory fees for the publication of a delinquent tax list, the court decides that the boards of county commissioners of lha gerera counties have the legal right to desig. nste tbe paper in which the delinquent tax lists and treaurers' notices shall appear. In that case, the commission ers or Aemaha county designated the Heneca Weekly Courier and the Nemaba County Republican as ooicial county papers; eacn paper agreeing to receive one-half of the legal fees. The treasurer designated thereafter, in addition, the Seneca Tribune. Tbe court says tbe des ignation of tbe Tribune by tbe treasurer was without authority of law, and that the publishers cannot recover of the county any compensation for the adver tisements furnished by that officer. It is further decided that tbe statute content plates the designation of only one official paper in a county: that if the commis sioners desizakle two or more, the treasur er can select either as tle official paper. If none are designated, tue Measurer can then designate a paper for bis official advertisements. In 0,uigly vs. the commissioners of Sunaaer county, it is decided that where tbe publisher of the officio; paper enters nu a written aoauact to publish the delinquent Ux lists at less than legal rates, the contract is valid ;tbat the con tract price controls; that the publisher cannot repudiate tbe contract or recover the statutory fees. 1 1 tbe case of Gentber vs. Lewis, it is held that a county cannot collect a larger sura for advertising a tract of land in a delinquent tax list, than it pays the pub lisher, in tout case, uie commissioners contracted for tbe publication ot the de- inauent tax list at eight cenu lor eacn tract of land. The statutory fee is twen ty-fire cents. Lnder tbe decision only eight cents could be charged to the land or the owner lor me costs or advertising, and the excess over eight cents is ad iodged illegal coma. The court farther holds tli at a tax deed, otherwise regular and valid, is fatally defective, if execut ed under a tax sale, including snch iile gal costs; that is, including costs in ex. cess of the actual fees paid to the pub lisher. The court also intimates mat publicity is of paramount importance in legal advertising: thereiore. mat com- misHioners should designate as the offi cial organ, the paper having tbe largest circulation in tbe county; mat a reduc tion of the legal fees at a sacrifice of cir culation and publicity is not in the in terest or the public, nor a sound iounua- tiop for economy and retrenchment. AFTER THE FIGHT. The Kansas City Times of Sunday counts California for Garfield. SDeaking of the election at Jefferson City, the Sedalia Democrat says: "This bole went radical, as usual." Democrats who insist that the Repub licans maintain tbeir control of the gov ernment by tbe corrupt use of money, should change their tactics and stop betting on the fellows who always come out second best See tbe p'mtT HERB AND THERE. They have feather bed theives in Kan- is City. Hon. Galusha A. Grow will run for the senate in Pennsylvania. Mrs. Kate Chase Sprague has made overtures for an amicable divorce. A man fell over one of the terrific bluffs the other day at Kansas City and lost his brains. It is stated that the Armour Bros. made $7,000,000 in the "corner" tbey made on pork. Major Swain, U. S. A, well known in Kansas, is spoken of as private secretary to president Garfield. Tbe total shipments from Lcadville for nine months of I860 to October 1st, amounts to $11,660,743. One hundred and twenty -eight million pounds of wool were imported by this country during the year 1876. Mr. Johnsmg, of the First congres sional district, Arkansas, certainly can not comnlain of not getting "a white man's chance." OVER THE STATE. Fall wheat looks well everywhere. The Citizen reports Wilson county scrip at par. Wilson county bas 14,000 inhabitants aiid no jail. Judge Morton's majority in the Third judicial district was 4,049. New Pittsbure. Cherokee county, is said to be growing rapidly. Wilson county gave a majority of 418 for the prohibitory amendment. Over one hnndred students are in at tondancc at the Ft. Scott Normal college. The state reform school building at Topeka is rapidly approaching couiple. tion. John Gilmore feels so good that he goes into the pictorial business. Full of good hits. J. W. Northam, of Girard, killed a blowing viper five feet long on Tuesday of lost week. Girurd turned out seventy -two old sol diers, all of whom voted the straight Re. publican ticket The school statistics of Shawnee coun, ty show an increase of 1,500 pupils durs ing the last year. Roes was the strongest man the Demo crats could have run for governor. He ran 4,255 votes ahead of Hancock. Three hundred men left Jewell county a few days ago to work on the Denver & Rio Grande railroad in New Mexico. The cotton crop about Independence, Kansas, bas been gathered and was a fair yield. Two cotton gins have been put in operation. Thoe. Fcnlon was seriously burned by the explosion of a kerosene lamp in bis room in Leavenworth, but will soon re cover, it is thought. The annual meeting of the state Grange of Kansas will beheld at Olathe, Johnson county, Tuesday, December 21st, 1880, at 10 o'clock a. m. George A. Thompson, of Galena, one day last week, sold 600,000 pounds of mineral at $98 per 1,000 pounds, mak ing a grand total of $15,000. Mr. E. Sapp, of Thayer, a well known stock and grain dealer, was attacked on Monday night of last week, by a couple of highwaymen, knocked out of bis bug gy and robbed. Prof. Wolf, of Wyandotte, Is gathering material for a historical painting for the legislative halls it Topeka. He is an artist of fifty years' experience and is the author of Wolff Panorama of Paradise Lost, painted at Cincinnati, Ohio. Secretary of State, Smith, estimated that a constitutional convention would cost tbe people or Kansas f suu.uuo, so the people thought they would just save tbst little item and voted against tbe proposition so solidly that even the re turns are of no interest Members of the Topeka Flambeau club are trying to secure an invitation to attend the inauguration of president elect Garfield. Tbe boys did noble ser vice duriog the campaign and we trust their wish may be substantially gratified in tbe bo ape of free transportation to and from Washington ctly. Prouty, of .the Junction City Union, loves John Davis, of the Junction City Tribune.- Hear hi mr "Mr. Johu Davis certainly has occa sion to feel proud of his vote in Davis county. He runs away ahead of Lis ticket John, you nave some peculiari ties we dislike, but on the whole we love you. Shake." Now, we shall watch with interest the result when John gets alter the "deli quent tax list." The local politicians of Topeka are already discussing the chances of their various friends for the office of mayor of the metropolis of Kansas." Thus far in tbe caovaag only seven names have been suggested, but it is thought that by tbe middle of March next a suftlcieot number will have offered themselves to permit the people to make a proper se lection. In view of Dr. Strlngfleld's em inent qualifications, as well as his eyi dent popularity, it is hoped his friends will not fail to present his claims. A NEW WaT- An indignant subscriber to a New Jersey paper appt into tbe office a few days ago and ordered bis paper stopped, because he di tiered with the editor i4 his views of subsoil ing fence rails. The editor conceded the man's right to stop his paper, and remarked cooly, as he looked over his list: Do you know Jim Sowdeas down at Hardscrabbler "Very well," said the man. "WaU, be stopped bis paper last week because I thought a tanner was a blamed fool who didn't know ilwttjmothy was a good thing to graft on huckleberry bushes, aud he (lied in less than four houis." . .

Forney's Sunday Chronicle yesterday contained the following double leaded statement We are in possession of the most relia. ble information for stating that all the rumors afloat concerning agreements between President-elect Gurtield and the lenders of the party for a distribution of official patrouage are the silliest ca nards. That many promiuent Republi cans visited and conferred with General Ga field is true, but that these visits and conferences implied bargains and sales is the merest fabrication. The only con ference that took place at Mentor, liable to special sigmlieance, was with the elder Comerou, his sou Don and General Grant and Senators Conkling aud Logan. At this interview, nothing was said about the future, excepting a discus sion of plans for the success of tho party, nor did Gen. Garfield invite an in terview, the idea having originated with the elder uameron. lie, having more sagacity than the rest, saw far enoucli ahead to realize that they had more at stake than Gen. Garfield, and as subse quent events show they are belter off politically than had they skulked into their tents, tiarnciu win neither otlentl bis party nor the country in the con struction of his cabinet, for while he ap preciates the Hopes ot bis fneuds that bis administration will be a stalwart one, he will in no sense permit abuses under it As to who will compose his cabinet the question of individuals has barely entered his mind, and just as soon as it docs he will call around him the ablest men of the party for consultation. . His letter of acceptance Is very clear and decided on this point The only two points said to be settled are first, provision for Secretary Sherman and recognition of some kind for Gov. Fos ter, who perhaps holds closer relations with Gen. Garfield than any man in the country. Secretary Sherman goes back to tub senate. by his own choice. Gov. Foster will be. offered a cabinet position, if be wants it, on a grade like that of the Secretary of tbe Interior. There is no doubt of the definite conclusion of these two points, but beyond this nothing has been talked of, excepting when the proper time comes to hold a consulta tion with the prominent members of the party, as stated. Ucn. Garfield will not set himself against the judgment of his friends or overlook the value of their advice. At the same time be will be president and ready to ' assume all the responsibilities Of his administration in constructing the cabinet. New Jgngland will not be overruled through the conceit ot a lead: er like Blaine. New York will be duly considered by the advice of Senator Conkling, and if he wants a gentleman like Hon. Levi P. Morton put at tbe head of the treasury department it will be done. Mr. Morton is bis life long tnend, or undoubted ability, and has the confidence of the moneyed men of the country. So there is no telling what may happen. Pennsylvania will also be fairly consided through Senator Came roa, and the west through Gen. Grant and Logan. The former. Gen. Grant, can easily have the war department, if he wants it,, which is hardly -likely- The latter, log&n, U8 tnends sav, 'i1'! like the interior departmopt oIlV t . 'im, but this is doubtful. The s- a tot be ignored, but there will I V' f r ter wasting of cabinet position by this administration at least .v -ady stated, there is no definite line of sclec tion yet determined upon, but what we have herein stated covers in a general way the prosrram of the future, on as good .33 authority as any out of the liniiti ol Mentor. 4 The -JBeetioB WEST VIRGINIA.

THE NEW RUGBY. na Hvrhes Tnlka About the Maw Colony 1st TonsM The rooms of tbe Farmers' Club, in uooper institute, were ailed with peo ple of both sexes yesterday afternoon to near Thomas Hughes talk about the Rugby settlement in Tennessee, A large part of Mr. Hughes' remarks were sug gested ny questions irom tne audience. Mr. Hughes said he was in tbe country to establish a settlement for young Eng lishmen, and Americans also, who, he hoped, would join them. The origin of the settlement was in the necessity of some outlet of this kind for the young generation of England. There was no country to which they would naturally turn as to this country, where tbe same language was spoken, and where they wumu nut! uie name luuumuous. iue next point was to look about for the best auarters in which to establish le settlement It seemed best to settle south of Mason and Dixon's line, for several reasons, in many states. It was difficult to obtain any tract of land large enough except in alternate sections. Again, the report as to the beautiful climate and healthful ncss induced them to look in that direc tion, and tbe very fact that they were go ing into the south was considerable in ducement "We have very litttle chance to teach the north anything, but on the contrary, there are many things for us to learn. If any Englishman thinks he js coming over to teach the north any thing he will find himself mistaken." This was certainly not the case in the south, Mr. Hughes thought Anything more thriftless or careless he had never seen. All they seemed to care for is to get enough to eat, go hunting and fish ing, and have a Ood time. He hoped sincerely that the good example set them ax KAgby,woj$i.j14ociie &bem to new el forts to bring a revolution in the state of agriculture in that section.' Cumberland plateau, on which the set tlemept is situated, is nesrly 2,000 feet above tbe sea, and this probably accounts for its delightful climate. The town is already laid ont into streets, and many of the lots haye been sold. Houses are being built as fast as possible, considering the difficulty of obtaining building material. A quarry and brick field are near by. and a saw mlH ia ntwing1 Sway as fast as it can-' They have put up a capital ho tel, which has been named tbe Tabard by Dr. Agnew, of this city, after the old hosllery in the south of London, from which the Canterbury pilgrims used to start 500 years ago, and Dr. Agnew is to send for the hotel some of the original banisters in the old hotel, which he bought when it was torn down. A few weeks ago a small beginning of a library was made with a few books belonging to Mr. Hughes, and a contribution made by bis fellow pasengers on the voyage to this country. While on his visit to Bos ton be was astonished and delighted to find that the great publishers of New York, Boston and Philadelphia had con tributed nearly 4,000 volumes to tbe free library of Rugby. A church baa been built and a vestry organized, and the building will be used by all denomina tions otch rist i an i ty. A school has been organ izedand if tbey can only establish as good a one in the aew Rugby as there was at the old Rugby in his school days, be will be satisfied. As to the conditions of becoming members of the settlement, every person must enter into a covenant that be will sell no intoxicating liquors, and for violation of this he must forfeit his membership. Every man baying a lot must build within three years a house of the value of $400. Another condition is that all persons shall help to carry out the different sanitary arrangements. Up to the last month the town lots varied in price up to $60. Now nothing is sold for less than $100. Around the town surveys have been made, and the land has been purchased largely or the set tlers at from $5 to $7 an acre. The most profitable occupation seem to be sheep raising and the planting of fruit and gar den vegetables, which find a ready mar. ket at Chattaqua. Many of the mechan ics who went to the settlement from the ntt have decided to remain 'rjermSneot. ly. as tere seems to be plenty of' work The extent of lka$ actually pkesed. and aeeara is ,imi acres, out were is bonded to them nearly 400,000, if they shall ever desire so large a tract.

Closing Sonne or tho War -The Whits Flag; at Appomattox, rrom tbe Philadelphia Times. On the morning of Anril i. lSMtf it was obvious that something quite out of the ordinary routine had happened, and I rode in the direction of Gen. Lee's neadquarters, which were at a house about a mile west of Petersburg. The scene here was bustling and full of ex citement Couriers were oassinir to and fro across the field carrying orders, aiid tne DiacE smoKC mentioned was seen to rise from a burning house, toward the outer works, near which was caught the gieam oi icaerai bayonets. Tbey Had broken tbe lines there, cantured the forts and were rapidly advancing, apparently to attack Gen. Lee's slight inner works uirecviy in uie suouros oi fetersbnrg. I was very much struck with his calm ness oi this trying occasion, and have often remembered it since as a remarka ble proof of the extraordinary coolness ana eq in pose or bis character. He was standing in the midst of a group of offi cers on tne lawn ot tne bouse wbere he had his headquarters, looking through bis field glass at a federal brigade or di vision advancing at a double quick to charge a battery posted on a knoll about 800 yards to the right of the house. a is race was entirely com posed and nothing in his appear ance indicated any emotion whatever. Having asked a friend in the group of officers if be could inform me where I could find Gen. Pendleton, chief of the artillery. Gen. Lee hearing tbe question. turned around quietly, raised his hat in return from my own saddle, and told me in a mild voice what 1 wished to Know. In a few minutes the federal infantry, at which he had been looking, charged tbe funs on the knoll, which came off on er a hot musketry fire, and Gen. Lee, finding that he was in danger of capture mounted bis gray and rode back slowly toward the town. As he was surround ed by a considerable number of officers, the grouo attracted the attention of the enemy, and tley opened fire on it One of the shells killed the horse of an officer within a few feet of me. and cut the bridle reins of another, and a second shell exploded directly behind Gen. Lee, wiinin a lew leel it seemed oi nis uacii, but without hurting him. His escape was remarkable, as the fragments of the shell raised the dust around him like a shower of musket balls, and the incident seemed to excite bim for the first I lme His face had been quite composed up to this moment, but suddenly nusuea witn anger. He turned his head over his right shoulder and looked at tbe tcuerai guns with the expression of a man who likes to charge them. He grew calm in a few momenta, however, and saving to an officer in a matter-of-fact voice. "This is a bad business, colonel," rode on, still under the fireef the shell, at a slow pace, to the low inner works, manned by a thin line ot iniantry. On the morning ot what a rhetorical writer would be apt to call the "tatal day" I rode tip to Appomattax court bouse, wbicb is a village on a nui, wuu the natural curiosity to find what was go ing to take place. It was certain mat the events of this forenoon would (le cide everything, as Appomatox was, in military phrase, the "defile" through which the confederates must pass to their safety or destruction. A heavy federal force, whether infantry or caval rv was not known, was in lront, aua tue decisive moment had come. If it was only cavalry it was tolerably sure that a man like Gordon, at the head of his five thousand veterans, would make sbort work of them ; but if the federal infan try was up in heavy force it was quite as certain that it would make short work of Gordon. He had advanced consider ably bevond the court house, and there were no troops in tne village at tne moment I entered it and rode on. There were traces of an engagement, however. on the night before, and I have often thought since of a trilling circumstance, if it may be called such, wbicb attract ed my attention. The dead body of a young artillery officer was lying in the road up tne mil. a lew weeks oeiore tie had sent in his application for a month's furlough to go and see his wife, who was dangerously ill, and though a gener al order directed that no leaves what ever should be granted, I had forward d hia anolication to Col. Tavlor. chief of-staff, calling his attention to the case. He gave the young officer ten days, and he.duly went and returned, and was now dead. SCENES AT APPOMATTOX. Gordon carried out bis orders, and made a sudden attack on the force in his front one of his old reckless assaults which on so many occasions during the latter months ot the war had carried ev erything before them. There was a gen eral conviction in the army that Gordon could be counted on to effect anything that was not absolutely impossible. The force of infantry and cay airy in his front was quite overpowering. He first at tacked Gen. Sheridan's cavalry and drove it a considerable distance, but then he came on the infantry and could do noth ing further, and tell back, the result was that Gen. Lea sent a flag to Gen. Grant with a view to surrender his army, and soon afterward went to Appomattox court house to meet him there. These events occurred quite rapidly, and the yicinity of the village had be come a scene of deep interest, though it could hardly be called one of excite ment There was no "noise and confu sion," and Longstreet's small corps of two thousand men, who had been sent for from the rear, advanced steadily in profound silence to form the line of bat tie behind the hill. From casual obser vation of ground at the spot it struck me as a sort of amphitheater, with the confederates in tbe arena and the federal audience, so to speak, on the raised seats. The surrounding bills were excellent positions for artillery, and the small force could be easily destroyed.it seemed. There was no doubt about the federal force "up" and ready for attack. The late Gen. Custer, then a young cay airy officer, with long, curling hair, and wearing a velvet undress jacket, rode down the slope with a flag, and I heard him exclaim, in an exited voice; "We have eighty thousand men just over that bill," pointing behind him as he spoke in the direction of the court house. At the moment only tbe federal caval ry were visible, and the situation was not encouraging. Tbey were drawn up in a very heavy column, or rather line of battle, in the depression opposite the confederate left A broad ravine gave us a good view ot tbem a solid and black mass, with light flashing from the sabres. They produced the impjession or being ready and only being held in leash, which, I suppose, affords a good idea or tbe tacts. THE WHITE FLAG. There was no further fighting, how ever. Gen. Lee had ridden to the court house, and agreed to the terms of sur render proposed by Gen. Grant, who very courteously appologized for not wearing nis dress sword, which be said was wuu bis baggage. Gen. Lee is known to have shown no emotion in face or demeanor, though he bad looked forward to the sur render with a feeling like despair, and exclaimed to one of his staff: "How easily 1 could get rid of this and be at restl I have only to ride along the line and all will be over." He said, how ever, about the same time, in reference to the terms of the surrender: "The question is whether it is right. If It is not right I take the responsibility." Tbe terms were that the army should surren der and return to their homes the offi cers retaining tbeir side-arms and the men their private horses -there to "rc main undisturbed," as I find from look ing at my own "paroled prisoners a pass." While this was going on, and while the small force of confederates in rear of the court house bad not the least idea that the whole affair was over, a pic to rescue it might be called dramatic incident indicated . everything. A column of federal infantry, which had passed thiough tbe court house, ad vanced to tbe brow of tbe hill above, waving in front of them the largest white flag I have ever seen. Where it was procured has always been a mystery to me to this hour. It is barely possible that a white flag of any sort was so un expected and monstrous to us that its size was exaggerated. With its appear ance something like the hush of death fell on everything. The men seemed un able to believe their eyes, and started at the ominous white signal, wsving to and fro, with stupid wonder. They were in position ready to fight, with cannon al ready in battery, tbe guns muzzles pointing and there was to be no more fighting! Gen. Lee was goinS to sur render. FEKUKO Or OFFICERS AND MEN. I try to give a true idea of the scene as I witnessed it and the feelings of tbe Confederates. It certainly was at first a feeling of otter astonishment, then of an ger and misery The officers of the ar my fell into a rage at tbe idea of tbe sur render, and especially an unconditional surrender, which was said to be Gen. Grant's way on snch occasions. I was in the midst of a gronp of ofBcera, and I most say we had all very nearly lost onr heads. One, with a violent oath, swore that he would be consigned to a name less place before he would surrender un conditionally to General Grant or any one. The alternative of forming a col umn of mounted officers and cutting pi rough the federal line was nearly adopted, but given up. It was seen to be hopeless 'eVen by these men whose heads were nearly turned with anger. The feeling of the men ia the ranks I do not know. I can only speak ot one of them, a ragged Infantryman, who came op to me and mentioning bis command, asked me if I could tell bim where he eould find it "Never mind," I said to him ; "there is no use looking for it now. . The army has surrendered." I shall never torjret the expression of his face or the tone of his voice when he replied to me. "burrendered !" he exclaimed, looking at me with a sudden haggard expression in ins eye.' "Gen. .Lee surrendered! Mister, don't be ioUlug with a poor fel low !" lie burst out cry in as he said this. and wandered away looking about him as he did so as if he had lo-t something and was searching for it. It certainly was a time when there was a temptation to "sued hot tears" or grind teeth to gether. The surrender was so unexpect ed that it came upon all but a few per sons with the force of a sudden blow. The men flocked around Gen. Lee when he came liack from his interview with Gen. Grant and met him with shouts and tears. His reply was : "We have, fought through the war to gether. I have d:ne the best I could for yon. Sly heart is too full to say more." LEE AND MEADE. Afterward it is said that tbe troops on both sides fraternized and interchanged visits, laughing over"old times," and the armies or the t'otomac and JNortbern Virginia had bad a good many "old times" with each other. 1 did not chance to observe this. The only frater nizing I noticed was that between uen Lee and Gen. Meade Lee in bis brown felt hat and gray riding cape, and Meade in his small cap and blue unitorm riding beside each other witb tbe gray and blue staff officers, mingled harmoniously. A few days afterward Appomattox Court House, wbicn baa suddenly emcrgea from obscurity, and became connected with a great event of history, sank to sil ence again, and was completely deserted. 1 he men of the southern army went quietly home through the wasted fields, not crying over what was irremediable, or having the least intention of living disorderly lives, becoming outlaws, or keening ur a hopeless conllict Iheis sue os secession had been tried by arms ; arms had decided it, and the worsted side ought to submit.

Arthur Filzpatrick, who returned from Colorado a short time ago, gives the fol lowing account of an occurrence in the mining districts, of which he was an eye witness: "A miner and some compan ions were crossing tbe Continental Di vide when it was covered with snow. Three miles below, down a decline of forty-five degrees, deeply covered with irozen show, lay the spot they desired to reach, wjiileto go round tbe trail was fif teen miles. The miner took a tin pan, used for washing gold, spread his blank et over it, got in himself in a squatting position on his haunches, tucked tbe blankets around, held his rifle aqd other traps oyer bis head, and got' one of his companions to give him a push. He in formed me be went down at the speed of sixty miles a minute, and shot far out into the valley at tbe foot of the moun tain. When be stopped be found the soldering of bis pan melted from friction, his blanket on fire, and it was his impression that, bad be gone much farther, he would have burned up, together with H his trap. Piltslwrg Telegraph. - : ' - SENATOR-ELECT MAH0NE. tVlio Swms to Have the Power to Lieciile the Politic of tbe tjnlted States sennas. From tbe Cincinnati Commercial. Every newspaper reader has heard of Mohone, of Virginia. He is the leader of the Keadjusters and the biggest man in the state. It is doubtful if there is any one man in the Democratic party to day who is the cause of more anxiety than be. While Mahoue is a big man in in fluence he is a small man in stature, smaller even than Alexander II. Steph ens, aud weighs less then 100 pounds. He has tbe frame of a woman, but the will of a giant or. at least such as a giant ought to have in proportion to bis size, tn bis niovements be is quick and nervous. He is about five feet three inches high, baa a large finely-shaped head, iron-gray hair and beard, grat eyes, and beauy eyebrows, dresses piairl- ly, and is about o'i years old. Aiabone is a seii-maae man. lie was born in Virginia, and for that reason ex erts an influence that one occupying his position, but born outside ot tbe state. never could. His education was largely obtained at the V irginia military insti tute, a scholarship in which he won in a competitive examination. He started in the business or lire as a chain carrier in a railaoad engineer corns. From that humble position he gradually rose to the presidency of a railroad company. and at one time controlled a system oi railroads irom xsortoik to tne Missis sippi. He was a general in the con fed erato army, and Gen. Robert . Lee is re ported to haye said or him that "1 would rather have him, his judgment, sagacity, and executive ability, than any general nave. II 1 should retire rrom the command or lhe army 1 should recom mend aianone lor my place." Manone was tue autnor and executor or tne plan to blow up urant s roruncations around Petersburg, of which city he is now a resiuenu M ah one's prominence as a political leader dates back nearly a decade. In 1809 the regular old school Democrats of V irginia, in convention assembled, de nounced the war amendments and the reconstruction measures, and, it is said, by every means in their power sought to array the auti-union and conservative elements of tho state against the national government A large element in the state rebelled at this action, saying that it would prevent Virginia, rich in every natural resource, from ever being as ful ly developed, as there was every reason to believe it might be, and declared that they were decidedly opposed to au un- progressive political torce. t or the want ot a leader tins rebellious element moved slowly. Ot necessity it must be composed ol carpet baggers and negroes, aud as the ruling class were sure to be against it, it required a man ot rare nerve to under- lake to lead. The man for the posi tion in the course ot time appeared. He was William Alahonc, then president ot the Virginia and Tennessee railroad and he, with a few others, issued a call for a convention of "the liberal-minded men of the state," a phrase that was per fectly understood by all those who were likely to actively support or antagonize Mahone. The convention nominated a full slate ticket, with Gilbert C. Walker, a northern man, tor governor. Among -us oilier important actions, tbe conven tion accepted lhe results of the war, the consutution.il amendments, and the re construction measures. The new parly adopted the name of "True and Liberal Republicans of Vir ginia." Men of every grade of political )iini in were invited to become adhe rents, aud assist in the announced ef fort to elevate Virginia above any other southern state in its political liberality. The negroes were especially solicited to join, and were solemnly promised that their educational interests should be looked after, and that in all other re spects they should be properly cared for. The audacity of this action dumb founded the regular Democrats, and af ter ineffectual cflorts to stem the tide, they withdrew their tlckcl.and apparently united Willi Aiabone and bis party. Ma hone is said to have been without politi cal ambition, and after the election of his candidates, and it appeared that his plans would certainly be carried out in the future, he returned to railroading, and in so doing put the power again in the hands of his former antagonists. When they obtained complete control they repudiated the promises Mahone had made. They were especially severe on the colored men, among other things enacting a capitation tax law, the object of which was to virtually disfranchise the blacks. They also made war on Ma hone and his leaders, and when the panic came in 1873 they succeeded in displacing bim in the railroad business. Mahone, out of business, turned his attention to the reorganization of his in dependent party. Under his direction the movement rapidly grew, until last vear thev defeated the regulars bv a ma jority of not less than 15,000 votes. Tbey carried both branches of the legis lature, and in due time elected llietr leader, Mahone, to the United States senate. The nominal issue upon which the battle a year ago was fought was the pay ment oi tne state debt ine regulars called themselves Funders or Debt-pay ers ; tue independents adopted tbe name ot lteadjusters: the Keadjusters are re pudiationists. But it is claimed that the Funders do not really believe in the pay. ment or the debt x:j,uuu,(mju. nor at pres ent all tbe interest Mahone and his friends won bv boldly appealing to the colored people for their votes, promising that, it victorious, tbe capitation tax should be abolished ; their right to vote as they pleased, and have their vole counted, should be protected, and that they should share in the offices. The Funders, it is said, had no, idea of the strength of the Keadjusters until too late to affect a reaction. In their wrath at their defeat, they read Mahone out of the party In May last, and endeavored to make the position of bis followers most unpleasant A correspondent of the Boston Herald says that society, the press, and even the pulpit, is against the Mahone men; and to be a lieadjuster was and is to be denied accommodation at tlie bank, credit at the store, and al most tho privilege or worshiping at ac customed places. The quarrel between the Funders and Keadjusters, both professedly Democrat ic, was so bitter that they would not unite on an electoral ticket. A CONFEDERATE FAIRT STORY. The irreconcilable supporters of tbe Lost Cause did not confine their efforts for the perpetuation of the rebel senti ment to the formation of historical soci tics and highly colored school histories, Wade Hampton's injunction that child- rcn at tbe mother's knee should be taught to cherish the hatred or tbe re bellion was not needed. Before it was given, tbe writer of a foolish little book called "The ) Princess of the Moon," copy of wbicb has been sent us, attempt ing to utilize even the rairy story tor this abominable purpose, ibis would bo ridiculous, if it were .not mon strous. The book was published at Warren- ton, Va., in 1869. As a literary prod ac tion it is insufferable twaddle. Its only significance lies in the facts we have stated, showing a spirit among southern people which recent events unbappiiy prove to exist still. The book is most absurdly designated a "Confederate Fai. ry Story," and it is as strange a mixture of political bitterness and supernatural no tion as was ever issued from the press. It is dedicated "to the children of the south, who-suffered during the war." The introduction, which is addressed to "dear little southern readers," dwells upon privation follow ing the war, and urges -. them to remember that when God wills that they should "suffer through tbe wickedness of others." they must not feel too much "resentment against the instruments of bis wrath." This pious sentiment is fol lowed by an elaborate recital or the suf fering of southern children, which they have just been asked to forget How well they remember during the "war waged against us. that chilly night when driven from your homes by brutal soldiers the burning, the horrors which ensued you, poor little wanderers from Atlanta, and children -of burning Col umbia. You, little son of tbe brave papa, how bitter the torture that bound thee hand and foot, whilst thy sisters were insulted and thy motner weeping; wy tears ol indignation return, and thou feel'st in thy heart a desire for revenge." Enough oi tne introduction. The story decribes the advantnres of an ex-Con federate soldier, who ultimate ly marries the Princess or the Moon. The indignation of the King of that planet, never before suspected of pro slavery sentiment, is great on learning from Randolph the Confederate, how his countrymen had been finally overpower ed by countless hordes of a meddling, pedaling race called Yankee. The King asks be told more of that pour, stricken. land and his eyes moistsn as Randolph sings the pathetic song of the "Con quered Banner." When the story ends wim tne marriage, me gooa lairy, wuu a touch of. her wand, changes tbe hero's dress into a "magnificent Confederate uniform-" The fegtivitiec are interrupt ed by tbe arrival of a balloon floating "banners of red and white stripes." From these come persons carrying "carpet-bags" and. "traps" of all descriptions. They like the country, .which they "guessed" would surpass, "the best gov. ernment the world ever saw." But when they see a handsome Confederate soldier on the throne, they are abashed- The appearance of one of his old slaves puts them to flight -' They drop their carpet bags "from which fall numerous yalu- able articles spoons predominating." The old slave had saved the Confeder ates from his burning bouse, and this precious foot-note is added for the little children's benefit: "In Sclma. daring the late war, an old man was burned to death in h is own bouse, by Yankee sol diers, no faithful darkey being near to rescue bim rrom the flames." But the good fairy intercepts the flying Yankees, and denounces tbem as "demons of cruelty," and asks the Confederate to fix tbeir puni8bment. That noble vouth. however, begs their release, "even though these enemies have driven me from my home, and deprived me of every earthly- consolation." They are there upon dismissed, by the tairy, with this address: "You may well rejoice tbst your captor, being a Confederate soldiar, spurns to trample on fallen foes, even uiougn tbey be the nillagers and Dlnn- derersof bis own household. Repent your ways while you have time. A res pite oi pumsbmenl has been granted to enable yon to return and warn your peo ple against nemesis, wnose uplllled hand is ready to strike tbe blow that will carry destruction in its wake. Retribu tion's swom. sharper than that of Mam- is suspended over them. Go. avert tha evil, before it is too late." This stuff was addressed, not to full- grown men and women, who could meas ure its wisdom, but to little children on whose virgin minds tha lightest word of ten leaves a life-long imDressloo. and with whom the most trifling act is a so ber reality. It would he pleasant to think that the spirit which animated it had died away, but Wade Hamc-ton's ad dress to the Southern Historical Society four years afterward, the compilation of Confederate school books continued to the present day, and tbe action of the Louisiana superintendent of education, with respect to a certain textbook, taken barely a month ago, show that there is too little ground for such a hope. New York Tribune. "THE BOT MILLIONAIRE." Only Twenty Tear ef Age a4 n Rail- rena rnaMsaL When the excitement over the great oil strikes in Clarion county a few years ago waa at its neignc, a railroad was built Irom tbe village of mlenton. on the line of the Alleghany valley railroad. to wianon, ine county seat r oxborgh was a place that had been called into ex istence four miles further down the Al leghany river by tbe oil discoveries. The land on which it was built and for miles above it belonged to the estate of a deceased iron manufacturer of Phila delphia, named Fox. The great inter ests of this estate were managed by Wil-. Main L. Fox, son of Uie deceased manu facturer. He was only 20 years of age. That Foxburg had been ignored by the proprietors of tbe Emlenton road anger ed the young millionaire, ne at once began the construction of a road from his town to Clarion. The roads were both of the three-foot gauge. Fox's railroad was compelled to climb a hill about 500 feet high to get a start out of Foxburg. This was done by a series of zigzags that carried the road over a dis tance of several miles, yet it was only a mile or two from Foxburg when the summit was reached- Both roads were finished. W. A. Fox was made presi dent of the Foxburg road. The compe tition between them was so sharp that neither road made money. Finally tbe stockholders of the Emlenton road suc cumbed to the wealthy "boy president" He secured stock enough in the rival road to control it, and both roads passed under his management He agreed to keep the Emlenton branch open and run special trains upon it between Emlenton and Jefferson Station, where it joined the other road for Clarion. Lat winter President Fox died sud denly. A favorite conductor of bis had been shot and killed by a passenger whom he had put off of a train because he refused to pay fare. Mr. Fox took a leading part in prosecuting tbe assassin. It was in obtaining the pistol that tbe murder was committed with, and in run ning a quarter of a mile to get on a train for Clarion, which was waiting for him. that president Fox so exhausted himself that be died in his seat in tbe car before reaching St Petersburg. AM ERIC AN APPLES ABROAD. It Is a fact probably not generally known that apples are rapidly becoming one of the most Important American ar ticles of export. Tbe following Interest ing facts concerning this branch of trade are culled from a New Ycrk ex change: "la the past three weeks nearly 80,000 barrels of apples, principally Greenings, JNewton pi pins and .Baldwins, nave been shipped to Europe from this city alone. ana not a steamer sans rrom this port to cross the Atlantic that does not carry ap ples. They are even shipped by sailing vessels from Boston. Upwards of 10,000 barrels per day is New York's contribu tion of apples to the old world. This quantity is equivalent to 120 car loads per day. For many years certain varie ties of American apples have been held in high esteem in England, and the most popular of all of them is the New ton pfpin. Only a few years ago they were sold there for upward of f 28 per barrel. A few years ago several of the fruit dealers in West Washington mar ket began shipping the full line of A merlcan winter apples with fair success, since which time the trade has increased until it reached the astonishing propor tions enumerated above. Newton pi- Eins were selling at last quotations in ondon at 9s to 13s per barrel, while Baldwins were doing nearly as well. Greenings, Periaoles, Spies and Kinga sell for from 9s to 1 Is per barrel. Some of the shippers will lose on their ven ture, while none can hope for much pro fit At the lowest price it gives shippers 5fl cents per barrel, and at the highest quotations it leaves them $1.23 per bar rel."

From left to right and from right to left it reads the same; 18 divided by 3 gives 9 as a quotent; 81 divided by 9 gives nine i if dyided by 9, tbe quotient contains a 9; if multiplied by 9, the product contains two 9's: 1 and 8 are V; 8 and 1 are 9. If the 18 be placed under tbe 81 and added, the sum is 99. If the figures be added thus, 1, 8, 8, 1, it will give 18. Heading from left to right it is 18, and reading from right to left it is 18, and 18 is two-ninths of 81. By add ing, dividing and multiplying, 19 9" are produced, being one 9 for each year re quired to complete the century.
