THE STHEJSJT» OF tH\ PAUL.
Somebody has written a drama about
"The Streets of New York." If that am
bitious dramatist should essay to write
about tke streets of St. Paul he would
probably find himself hopelessly bemired,
or else he would be far more fortunate than
the majority of our citizens, who have, for
the past ten days, attempted to traverse what
are called through courtesy public thorough
It is the misfortune of St. Paul to have
bat three paved streets — Third, Robert and
Jackson streets. At least tradition affirms
that they were once pavod, yet the oldest in
habitant has been un hie to recall the day
when the pavement was last seen. The re
mainder of the strt-eis are covered with a
compost of clay and gravel that, when a
heavy dew falls, becomes' the stickiest kind
of mud and seemingly has no bottom.
The city is full of rumors of the mysterious
disappearance of young children who have
attempted to cross the streets at other than
the prescribed places, and have never re
turned to their homes. It is not probable
that all the rumors are well founded, but
if they are not it is due to the fact that
the adventurousnees of the average small
boy is sensibly on the decrease.
Seriously, the condition cf our streets is
disgraceful. Our paved streets are ankle
deep with the softest kind of mnd, and those
that, according to the reports of the city
engineer have been "gravelled," are in such
a condition as to appal even the most ad
venturous teamster. Wabasbaw street, one
of the principal business thorough
fares, is in such a condition as to
render it almost impassable. The
-wheels of all sort of vehicles sink
in the mass of mud until they strike the
jrost. If the ground was thoronghiy thawed
they would probably disappear from mortal
-vision altogether. On the other streets that
are presumably gravelled the situation is
even worse, and it is no uncommon thing for
an empty wagon drawn by two powerful
horses to be stalled.
Our street improvements in the past have
been expensive, and our property owners
have a right to expect that the city authori
ties see to it that they are thorough. The
city (engineer or the contractors — perhaps
both— seem to have been of the opinion that
day would make as good a roadway as the
best of gravel. At any rate, while our prop
erty owners have paid for gravel they have
received clay or the cheapest kind of loam.
We know of no city of the size of St. Paul
and having such exoptional facilities for
drainage and material for roadways that has
such abominable streets. Dirty as Chicago
is, it compares with St. Paul as a parlor does
with a hog-pen. If the present condition of
affairs continues for any length of time it
will be necessary for our oitizens to strap a
life preserver about their persons for fear
they fall into the street and drown in the
filth that covers them.
THE WORSHIP OF MAMMON.
Beloved, follow not that which is evil, but
that which is good. — 111. John 11.
In this world there are many temptations
to evil and few inducements to a righteous
life. On every side we see men whose lives
are vioious prospering in this world's goods,
while others who are striving to live in ac
cordance with the divine law are living in
penury and want. When David declared
that he had not seen the righteous forsaken,
or his seed begging bread, his experience
mu3t have been exoeedingy limited or else
the condition of society has changed vastly
since his days, for at the present time any
man who keeps his eyes opeu can see in
numerable instances of the kind. It seems
to have become the rule that the ungodly
flourish, while those who seek to follow the
teachings of scripture are permitted to suf
fer all the ailments incident to poverty.
For this condition the church is largely re
sponsible. The ministers who preach the
gospel to the poor at the rate of from three
to ten thousand dollars a year are also re
sponsible to a certain extent. The church
not only harbors bat courts the affiliation of
men whose only qualification for church
membership is the possession of wealth.
The moral character of the applicant has no
weight if it is counterbalanced by a goodly
supply of ducats. A man may be a usurer,
a libertine or a politician, and yet his society
is welcomed in the church and he is given a
foremost place in all deliberations of the con
gregation. A poor man, no matter what his
qualifications may be, is received seemingly
under protest. His credentials from the
church he formerly belonged to are scanned
with the utmost care, and if he is finally ac
cepted it is only with reluctance.
The fact that encouragement is given to
the rich and immoral to join the chnrch is
prominent before the publio ; the fact that
the poor and godly are often excluded for no
apparent reason but their poverty is conclu
sive of .the fact that worldly possessions are
regarded as of more value than Christian
principles. The clergy seem to agree with
the popular thought en such themes, and pay
court to the rich and neglect the poor. In
this worldly age the clergy seem to be
more concerned about their salary than
about the spiritual welfare of the people un
der their charge. They pander to the preju
dices of those upon whom they mainly de
pend for their subsistence, and fail to rebuke
the mainfold transgressions of those select
few while they hurlfthe denunciations of the
decalogue against the less conspicuous mem
bers of their flocks.
The cause of transgression on the part of
the clergy is simple and easily understood.
It is the love of social position and ease.
Without large salaries there wonld be danger
that the preachers who now adorn our pul
pits would be obliged to work for what they
obtain. As it is, they have an easy routine.
Pastoral calls are always pleasant, as the pas
tor has the choice of the household be in
vades. If the society is not congenial in any
particular place, he can make his calls brief;
if pleasant, he can extend them. He has a
day's work in seven to prepare a couple of
sermons for the Sabbath, and there are none
present to decide whether he preaches an old
sermon or a new one. He can quote from
the books he reads, and there are none to de
tect him in his plagiarism. But still he
complains of bard work and insists that his
congregation shall give him leave of absence
for a month or two during the summer,
and those whose weaknesses be has con
cealed or condoned are only too ready to
grant the release.
and fail to rebuke
The preacher of the period is a singular
being if we estimate him from the typical
preacher of the scriptures. He is a man of
the world, and takes good care that the inter
ests of No. 1 are cared for. When he re
ceives a call from another church it invaria
bly happens that the salary offered is larger
than that which he is receiving. He loves
refined society so devotedly that he spends
the greater part of his time in the homes of
the wealthy, and has but a moment to ex
change a few words with those whose cir
cumstances preclude them from contributing
a large amount to his support. He is gener
ally in delicate health, and abont the time
the fashionable season is at its height he is
attacked with a bronchial affection
that necessitates his retirement from the
pulpit for a month or two that
he may recuperate at some seaside resort.
When he doesn't feel like writing a fresh
sermon or when his "barl" of old ones gives
ont, he delivers, "by request of many mem
bers of the congregation/ a discourse that
has probably had a score of appearances.
As a whole the preacheis of the gospel
are not imbued with the spirit that should
characteriie an expounder of religious truth.
They worship the golden calf most obsequi
ously, and thus bring reproach upon the
cause which they assume to advocate. More
go dliness and less worldline&s seems to be
one of the crying necessities of the times as
far as the pulpit is concerned.

To-day the Catholic world begins the ob
servance of an anniversary of peculiar relig
ious importance. Services will be held in all
the Catholic churches throughout Christen
dom in memory of Saint Benedict, the four
teen hundredth anniversary of his death.
THE BENEDICTINE ORDEB.
Saint Benedict was born A. D. 480, and died
March 24th, A. D. 543. At an early age he
gave proof of the piety and wwdom which
made him ultimately the founder of the Bene
dictine order of monks, which quickly assumed
a strong hold upon the Western church. The
first monastery of this order was built on
Mount Cassino, which exists to this day.
This order in the church is the most ancient
and most widespread. It kas given to the
church twenty-four popes, and the learned of
the brotherhood have given to the church its
most eminent fathers, and for the world its
convents and monks and priests have been the
conservators of science, literature and art.
From the beginning, the Bene
dictines devoted themselves to the
btudy of science and letters and the culture of
art. With such intellectual pursuits they
added the industry of agriculture. They be
came in this way the teachers of youth and the
friend of the people in bringing them from the
rude attractions of war and rapine to the arts
of peace. Many colleges were established by
the Benedictines, and the order is noted in all
ages for master minds in literature, science and
for the fostering and protection of art. In the
dark ages, when a decadence of all cultivation
or learning fell to the lot of man, the secret of
letter*, the certainty of science and the beauty
of art were preserved in the Benedictine con
vents or monasteries to await the renaissance,
for which to-day the world in its enlighten
ment is the beneficiary.
THE MEMORIAL CEREMONIES.
The fourteen hundredth anniversary of Saint
Benedict's birth is to be observed to-day. In

Probably no other man born a hundred years
ago will have bo many thousand persons this
year thanking God that he was born as Dr.
Channing — whose centennial of birth falls on
Wednesday next. In Chicago the call for the
public meeting on that day to celebrate his
memory was signed by representatives of
churches that seldom sister one another; and
the meeting in Chicago is itscif but representa
tive of the reverence now felt for him. "The
leader in a great theological movement, he ex
erted a wide influence over the religious thought
of America. He was endeared to the people of
his charge by the sweetness of his character and
the spirituality of his teachings. A firm believer
in the dignity of human natnre, and
hating every form of injustice and oppression,
he was a zealous champion of human rights,
and was honored throughout the world as a
Christian reformer and philanthropist." So
says the tablet erected in his church in Boston,
and so says increasingly the world. In France
his life has twice been written within the last
few years. France, Germany, Hungary, Italy,-
Russia, we believe, and even Iceland, have
more or less of his works translated into their
own tongues. In this country three memorial
volumes are this year published, short biogra
phies and "reminiscences;" and in England
one of the tributes to his memory is the print
ing of 100,000 copies of a shilling edition of his
works complete. "To-day heretic, to-morrow

The Last Tribute to the Late Mrs. Driscoll.
The funeral obsequies of the late Mrs.
Anna L. Driscoll, wife of Frederick Driscoll,
were held at 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon
from the family residence, No. 28 St. Peter
street, the body having arrived from Cold
water, Mich., by the morning train. The re
mains were encased in a rich casket, heavily
mounted and covered with black velvet. A
marked tribute was paid to the noble quali
ties of deceased by her numerous friends,
who were present in large* number. Im
pressive and beautiful religious services were
held, the Rev. Dr. Breed officiating, vocal
selections, appropriate to the solemnity of
the occasion, being rendered by the House
of Hope choir.
A large number of exquisite floral offer
ings were Bent by the sorrowing friends of
deceased, and the casket was almost banked
with the choicest treasures of Flora. Lov
ing hands had placed a harp, anchor and
cross of tea roses and lillies at the foot of
the casket, which were lovely in purity and
perfume. A crown adorned the head of the
casket, while chaplets were woven of in
wrought tea-buds and immortelles. At 3
o'clock Dr. Breed announced that, in rccord
ance with the rules of the Pastors' associa
tion, the services would be closed with the
benediction, after which those not intending
to accompany the remains to the cemetery
would quietly withdraw.
Words of sweet consolation from holy writ
were then read by the preacher, after which
a beautiful hymn was sung by the quartette,
when a majority of the friends withdrew.
At 3:45 the casket was borne from the house
by the following pall-bearers: Gen. McLoren,
Charles Nicholas, W. D. Cornish, Richards
Gordon, Thomas Cochran, Jr., and J. H.
Walsh. The cortege proceeded to Oakland
cemetery where the remains were interred.

ARMY OF THE TENNESSEE
Its Splendid Record Daring the War- Gen.
X AY. Johnson's Interesting Review of a
Dark Period In the Struggle.
A meeting of the llamaey county Vet
erans' association was held at the court
house, last evening, quite a number of vet
erans being in attendance. Col. W. H.
Taylor presided and Capt. J. J. McCardy
performed the duties of scribe in the ab
sence of the regular secretary.
A receipt for $13 was handed in by Capt.
Mead, the same having been collected by
Maj. Browning made a short addres3,bear
ing on the necessary Bteps to be takes in
jrder to secure pension blanks, whiab, he
stated, could best be procured from the adju
tant-general's office at the capitol.
Gen. li. W. Johnson was then introduced,
and delivered the following interesting and
eloquent address on the movements of the
army of the Tennessee in and about Chat
The campaign of General Rosecrans by which
he expelled the rebel army from middle Ten
nessee, was one of unusual brilliancy, and yet
the ease with which it was done gave him a
contemptible opinion of Bragg and his gener
als, and caused the campaign into northern
Georgia to result in failure and disappoint
ment. Rosecrans had so much confidence in
the coufage, devotion and endurance of bis
own army and so little respect for the energy
and enterprise of his opponent that he planned
a campaign beginning at the Tennessee river
and extending into the very heart of the con
federacy, without considering that he might
have an enemy to overcome before his object
ive point could be reached . Bragg, with his
army, was encamped at Chattanooga, with its
approaches well fortified, and felt himself per
fectly seenre. Rosecrans put his columns in
motion, and each day tht distance between his
right and left was increased, and on tbe 15th
day of September, a distance of forty miles
separated them. Bragg evacuated Chattanoo
ga and fell back some distance, delaying an at
tack until he could receive re-enforcements
from Richmond. Finally Rosecrans became
aware of the enemy's intention and ordered a
Bpeedy concentration of his scattered forces.
Longstreet, from the Virginia army, arrived
and reported to Bragg about the 16th or 17th.
On the 18th there was skirmish firing all day
on our left, which was held by Thomas' corps.
During all the glad spring and the golden
summer our advance kept pace with the feath
ery fringe of the skirmish smoke, and the thun
der of the guns rolled southward continuously;
and when August had languished into the lap
of autumn, and the simmering heats of its sul
try lingering began to go out with the falling
leaves and the fading year, we followed the
guiding lights of our banners into the mad
havoc! of that death-grapple at Chickamauga.
"The soul of battle was abroad
And blazed upon the air."
Repeatedly the rebel hosts were hurled against
our lines, only to be repulsed and driven back
with great slaughter. During the entire day
on Saturday (19th), the roar of artillery and
musketry was continuous. But the sun went
down behind the western hills and darkness
closed the operations of the day. Nothing nad
baen decided. Our lines were readjusted and
preparations made for a renewal of the conflict
on the following day.
The provision train could not be found and
the tired, hungry soldiers had to retire without
dinner or supper. Capt. C. R. Taft, of my
staff, after taking a short sleep, awoke and be
gan a search for his saddle — in the shoe-pouch
of which, he said, he had placed a piece of ham
and hard biead about a week previously. Tbe
saddle was found and the little store of provis
ions brought forth. Being the senior officer
present, the largest share was assigned to me,
out of courtesy, and I received a piece of ham
about an inch square and about tbe same quan
tity of bread. 1 have dined at the Merchants
and at the Metropolitan, but Col. Allen or
Col. Belote never spread before me such a rich
feast as Taft drew from his old shoe pouch
Ou the 20th of September the sun rose clear,
and the stillness of the hour reminded every
one that it was Sunday, the day upon which the
Savior of the world rose — that Savior whose
mission was to preach peace on earth and good
will among men. The struggle soon commenced
and continued throughout tbe day with unusual
How can I portray the wonderful story of
that Sabbath day's valiant work when Thomas
held at bay the outnumbering columns of tbe
foe with his encircled wall of steel ? Minstrel
sy and poesy, the inspiration of the painter
and the enchanted numbers of song, will
give it all its full-flushed
meed of glory. History is commonplace and
oratory is dumb in the attempt to render it
fair measurement and do justice to the superb
merit of its achievement.
RosecraAß could not be found and Thomas
alone directed the operations of the day. Then
back through the bitter night we filed, and
pitched our camps at Chattanooga, and there
for long, woful weeks the Army of the Cum
berland held its position in the face of the be
leaguered enemy without, and griping famine,
and mortal disease, grim and unsparing, in its
Rosecrans was relieved and Thomas, who had
saved tbe army at Cbickamauga, was designat
ed as his successor. Gen. Grant telegraphed
Thomas: "How long can you hold Chatta
nooga?" He replied in the strong, terse
words: "Until we starve."
The rebel army closed in around us and
every avenue by which we could bring forward
supplies were closed, save one, and that on tbe
north side of the river, through a rough, moun
tainons country. Over this nncertain and un
reliable route the provisions for the army had
to be transported.
Day by day the allowances were reduced un
til at lasi a mere semblance of food had to
When the army took possession of Chatta
nooga it was a beautiful place. Many fine
residences with large grounds, beautifully laid
out and studded with fruit, ornamental and
shade trees, gave it an aristocratic appearance,
but the scarcity of firewood necessitated the
leveling of these fine trees and the destruction
of fences, and starving horses and mules
played sad havoc with the timber shrub
Chattanooga is surrounded on all sides by
high mountains which overlook the city. Above
and below the town the Tennessee river could
be seen winding its way along the base of the
mountains like a silver thread, passing by the
beleaguered army, thence running directly to
ward the Northern peak of Lookout mountain,
striking its base with all the force of the cur
rent, thence almost at right angles and dis
appearing from view through its mountain
passes. I The enemy occupied the mountains
on the south and also the summit of Lookout.
Bragg had the federal army co nicely cooped
up that he sent for Jeff. Davis to come and see
it. He i arrived, bringing with him a large
number of ladies who desired to see
how live Yankees looked in a cage. The top
of the m ountain was beyond effective musket
range, and so far elevated above the plain be
low that artillery could not be depressed
enough so as to throw shot or shell into our
camp. In order to entertain Davis and his
feminine followers, the battery on the moun
tain threw shells so as to explode over the fed
eral camp and the falling fragments would
create commotion, and this seemed to please
the rebel spectators very much, judging from
the yells that rent the air with each discharge.
This performance mast have been very amus
ing to the rebels, but it was very provoking to
the half starved loyalists, wm> could see very
little fun in such target practice.
Our cause was becoming more and more hope
less each day, and it was necessary to strike at
once and remove the rebel obstructions from
the Tennessee. The army had at Bridgeport a
large supply of provisions, and the steamboats
to transport them, but the rebels held the river
at several points. Thomas directed Hooker to
cross his force at Bridgeport and move along
the line of the railroad in the direction of
Chattanooga. Other troops were sent down
the river on the north side to cross
and renforce him. Two thousand men, under
Gen. W. F. Smith and Gen. W. B. Hazen, were
detailed to man a number of pontoon boats,
float down the river some eight miles, land and
capture the rebel guard at that point. This
fleet cut loose from its moorings on a dark,
rainy night, descended the river, passing under
the frowning brow of Lookout, whose summit
was occupied by the unsuspecting enemy. Not
a word was spoken, not a paddle moved —
ly and noiselessly this expedition passed down
unobserved. At a suitable place the boats
landed, and with the rapidity of the thunder
bolt the men rushed on shore, surprised and
captured the whole rebel force, not one of
whom escaped to tell the story. Before
the silver gray of the morning appeared a pon
toon bridge spanned the river at that point, '
and the gallant 2,000 were so reinforced that
they could not be dislodged. This gave us un
interrupted navigation to within eight miles,
and soon the haversacks of our .starving men
were partially filled, and happiness and con
tentment once more reigned in Chattanooga
among the rank and file. Not so with thoee
high in command. The driving back of tbe
defiant enemy from the immediate front was a
necessity which became more glaring each day.
The army of the Cumberland was reinforced
by Gen. Sherman and his army, and Gen.
Grant arrived and assumed command of all the
forces. He visited the various camps, con
versed with the officers, found all in good
spirits and eager for the fray. With such a
state of feeling, that he found to exist, he felt
sure of a victory when his arrangements were
all perfected. Troopß were placed in position,
weak points were strengthened, ammunition
issued, and the general plan of impending bat
tle discussed among the army and corps com
On the 23*1 day of November the movement
against the enemy on Mission Ridge beg#.
Thomas' command rushed out of the tempor
ary works by .which they had been sheltered
and drove tUe enemy beyond Orchard knob,
which was seized and fortified daring the
night. On the following morning he pushed
Howard's corps along the south bank of the
river across Citico creek where he reported to
Gen. Sherman, ender whose command he
served during the continuance of the battle
and the subsequent march to East Tennessee
for the relief of beleagued Knoxville.
Under Thomas' supervision Hooker scaled
the western slope of Lookout mountain, dur
ing the evening, driving the enemy from
his rifla pits on the northern
extremity and slope of the mountain,
aided by Gen. W. P. Carlin's brigade, which
was temporally detailed from its proper divis
ion for this particular service. During the
advance of Hooker's command up the rugged
slope of old Lookout, the thin, misty clouds
which had enveloped the crest of the mountain,
lowered s*> as to obscure his entire force from
the view of the main army on the plain below.
The rattle and roar of musketry was terrific
and deafening, and as there was no way by
which it could be ascertained how the conflict
was going, the anxiety was
intense and all eyes were turned
in tbe direction of Hooker. Suddenly, as if
to relieve the army from the painful sus
pense, a friendly breeze lifted the clouds, re
vealing Hooker's line, dotted here and there
with the various regimental flags, all moving
Bteadiky onward and upward. The sight was
grand beyond description — a battle in the
clouds and victory perched upon the federal
banners. I have seen it stated that Gen.
Grant denied Hooker the credit of fighting a
battle in or above the clouds. While I dislike
to differ with so distinguished a personage as
Gen. Grant, yet, as I beheld the battle with
my own eyes, I cannot disbelieve or doubt my
own senses, and hence must take issue with
anyone who affirms that there were no clouds
to obscure Hookar and his troops from the
view of those on the plain below.
On the following: day the federal army
rushed out from their rifle pits, and with a
shout and a yell, scaled tne bide of Mission
Ridge, driving the rebel army in great con
fusion from the strong position it had held for
After reaching the summit nearly everyone
looked back to get a view of Chattanooga, from
that elevated position, and the
first object seen was a steam
boat, puffing and snorting up stream,
laden with rations and forage. No longer the
rebel battery on the top of Lookout obstructed
the free navigation of tke river.
The day's work was complete. Every stain
of defeat had been wiped away from our shred
ded and riven banners, and the cloud-capped
brows of Lookout and Mission Ridge had been
crested with a halo of triumph.
The army marched South, and after the lapse
of a short time peace was restored and the vet
erans "went marching home" to gladden the
hearts of parents, wives, children and sweet
hearts. Looking back we sec the widow, whose
pale face indicates the sorrow of her heart, and
clinging to her skirts we see the darling little
one, who, peering up into that sad face, be
seechingly enquires, "when will papa come
home?" Alas, alas, he will never retura. He,
with 14,000 of our gallant defenders, are hold
ing their long, last, solemn bivouac with the
silent Southern stars for their only sentinels,
on the plain of Chattanooga, under the shad
owy sheen of the stary flag.
Veterans! Since you first entered the service
in the defense of your country you have passed
over steep, rough and rugged places. At times
the sun has shown brightly, at others dark and
dismal shadows have overhung your pathway.
You have bridged angry, surging streams with
sore and bleeding hands, or forded them with
tired and weary feet, but turning from the
past and looking to the future, we see i ust be
fore us our setting sun with its soft, mellow
light, gilding oar downward pathway, and just
beyond we behold the golden gates
of that happy land where
unending exemption from cares and troubles
will more than repay us for the hardships and
trials of this world. Let us stand fast by our
old faith and follow our old colors to the end.
We may have differences of opinions on some
subjects, but upon one are all united, and that
is pride in the memory of the grand old army
of which we were members; pride in the tact
that we stood in its ranks when the nation re
quired our services; pride in the fact that the
rebellion was utterly suppressed, and pride,
exultant, unchecked and immeasurable pride,
that the American flag floats to-day, unhindered
and undisturbed, over the whole dominion of
the American Union. Th« ( government, for
whose prosperity you went forth to battle, has
within its boundaries tbe germs of such riches
and power and prosperity as has never been
seen before in all the gorgeous orient, or^the
whole wide panorama of European history.
It stands to-day unrivalled in the possession
of all the elements, natural and national, of a
mighty and prosperous career. An unreseived
and whole-eonled faith and fealty upon tbe
part of all portions of the country will, in good
season, wipe away every iucumbranceand start
the busy flails of activity and enterprise and
wealth all over the land. Republican govern
ment is no failure; on the contrary it is a stu
penduous success, and its powers of endurance
are only to be measured by the limits of time.
The blood of its children has worked out its
regeneration. "The seed of its uiaityrs" has
been truly the redemption of the nation. And
so gentlemen, I entreat you to hold fast to the
faith that is in you. Let your organization
live in history and its peaceful future cast no
shades of discredit upon your warlike past.
