Cleveland, says he has fallen into the precise tracks of his great predecessor, though not having the ability to perform, or the work to perform, which the latter had before him, for "Tilden," it says, "was the first man to throttle those gross abuses of state administration which had defied the governors of New York of both parties for a generation." The Cincinnati Volksblatt, the most in fluential German Republican daily paper in Ohio, edited by Hon. Fred Hausserk, is advocating the nomination of Judge Geo. Hoadley as the Democratic candidate for governor, and in case of his nomination will support him. If Judge Hoadley is the Democratic candidate he will poll the German vote of the state to a man, and this vote is the balance of power in Buck eyedom. Speaking of the Ohio Scott liquor license law, the Chicago Tribune says editorially: "Gov. Fostor approves of the law and will sign it," The Tribune needs to be in formed that the governor of Ohio does not "sign"' the laws passed by the legislature. In his capacity as a citizen he may approve or otherwise, but officially he has no voice. He signs commissions for justices of the peace, and when he has performed that duty he can go fishing the balance of the year. ______________________ These is one agent of destruction which is often developed in exploding steam boilers, the generation of which and the peculiar composition of which science has failed to give knowledge either to itself or the world. The mighty property which threw an exploding steam boiler three hundred feet into the air with the swiftness of a bullet, at Evansville, Indiana, -yesterday, crashing through a building as though it was of paper, and completely wrecking it, is only one of many similar exhibitions of power, of the composition of which as yet there has been nothing deduced but theories. Ir may not generally be known that at most of the old anthracite coal mines in Pennsylvania the vast hills, and in some places small mountains of the debris of coal dust brought out from the workings and dumped, by some unknown method or manner, have been fired, and have thus been smouldering for many years. A fire of this character at the mines of Ashland has extended to the workings of the mine itself, and the » proprietors are taking methods to subdue it. One of these vast accumulations of debris which is on fire is piled up abruptly for fully 2,000 feet from a narrow valley, which has been carted out from drifts worked under a mountain for forty years for a distance of oyer four miles. The remarks made by CoL Robert G. In gersoll, beside the open grave of the jour nalist, Mills, are given in another column of tie Globe. They possess a singular beauty and the wealth and worth of conso lation. "All w.-'i for happiness beyond his life," said the speaker. "All hope to meet, again the loved and lost. In every heart there grows this sacred flower of eter nal hope. Immortality is a word that hope, through all the ages has been whisper ing to love. * * Let us believe that over the cradle nature bends and smiles, and lovingly above the dead in benediction holds her outstretched hands.'' The man who spO-- these words in his heart of heart- baa bcii-t of the new and better life beyond the grave. Twice before at least, when he stood by the open grave of his brother, and by the bier of a young child he revealed to the world the same la. th. And this is the Christian trust and hope; "we lo\e. we wait, we hope." This j comprehends all of human faith. Who | indeed f-thorns the eternal thought? Who talks 0. "schemes and plan without at every point, revealing the power and weak device of r_t_n? Ssnatob H----SO- and Judge Gresham, of Indiana, have been bad friends for a long time. When the judge was asked by his friend Col. Foster if he would accept the postmaster generalship, he telegraphed his consent as follows: "Will accept the position, but suggest that the official noti fication of my appointment be pent me through. Senator Harrison." To oblige the president, Harrison telegraphed Gresham that hi- commission had been made out. Thus Gresham humbled his rival, and Harrison is now more bitter against him than before, and their relations will con tinue of the most superficial character. Gresham's relations with the public men ot Indiana of the Republican persuasion are no more cordial than the attitude be tween himself and Harrison. Foster, who has been banished to Spain, and who is reported to have more influence with Arthur than all the rest of Indiana, is tho only friend of consequence that the P. M. G. can rely on. Every day develops the weakness of Gresham's appointment from the political standpoint on the Republican side, and in making it Arthur perpetrated a blunder of the first-class. In so far as it may strengthen the Democracy, it will, however, prove beneficial to the country. After submitting two constitutional amendments, one for prohibition, and one leaving the liquor traffic subject to legis lative control, the Ohio legislature has passed what is called the Scott law, Dr. Scott, of Warren being its author. This law provides for a tax (license) of $200 where spirituous liquors are sold, and $100 where wine and beer only are sold, and re peals in the cities of the first class the Smith Sunday law. The legislature passed a similar law a year ago, which the Su preme Court decided unconstitutional on the ground that the Constitution forbids license in any form, and tho use of the word '*ta_".was held to be a mere evasion of ,the constitutional inhibition. A special from the State capital says that it is the opinion of the best legal minds of the gen eral assembly that the Scott law does not seem counter to any constitutional inhibi tion. It is also said Gov. Foster coincides with the view taken by the members of the legislature. All this, read between the lines, means that during the year the resig nation of Judge Longworth and the death of Judge White has enabled the governor to "pack" the court with the judges, who will take a different view of the constitu tion and find a way to pronounce a license (tax) law constitutional. The passage of the Scott law of course destroys all possi bility of the adoption of a constitutional amendment, as its author, no doubt, in tended. The two-thirds Republican ma jority of the legislature have made a fine muddle of the whole subject. Among the floating gossip of the day comes the story that Dorsey and Brady intend to sue the New York Times for $500,000 for malicious libel. The Times had a special grievance against Dorsey which takes off the flavor of purity in its harsh assaults upon him in connection with the star route matters. In the cam paign of 1880 Dorsey ordered many thousand copies of the New York Tribune for general circulation, and Indiana was flooded ■with that publication. Not a copy of the Times was ordered or paid for by Dorsey's committee. This sent the iron into the soul of the publisher of the Times. Garfield, Arthur, Jewell and some others agreed that the Times should be thus ignored, and Dorsey meiely carried out their views. The venal journal chose to pass these men by with cold contempt and made Dorsey the object of its particular wrath, intending to strike at Garfield if he did anything to prevent an examination into the charged star route crookedness. From this beginning, of itself corrupt and venal, has come the whole nauseous spectacle of the star route trials. If the Times had been recognized or subsidized by the Re publican committee it would have been dumb as to the accusations it has brought against Dorsey and Brady. Whether these two men will ever prosecute the Times is doubtful, but that paper is entitled to no measure of public confidence or respect for a single word it has said from the be ginning to the ending of the star route cases. TIIE FIRST WARD ALDERMAN. The following card indicates what the Globe of yesterday foreshadowed, that there will be no serious contention for al derman in the Second precinct of the First ward: St. Paul, April 21, 1883. To my friends in the First ward, Second pre cinct, that insist upon my being a candidate for alderman, I desire to say I thank them for their kind wishes, but I must respectfully decline for the reason that I am gcing to start business for my own account, and I want to devote all my time to it. Also for the reason that it is a very close ward and I do not want to create any dis sension in the Democratic party. Respectfully, Wm. McTeague. This straightforward and manly card of Mr. McTeague effectually ends whatever opposition existed to Aid. Dowlan's return in his own party, and it would not be sur prising if he had no Republican opponent at the polls. PROHIBITION IN lOWA. The decision of the supreme court of lowa touching the prohibitory amendment to the constitution of that state|adopted—or presumably adopted—at the last general election, settles for the time being, and probably for many years, the whole ques tion of prohibition in lowa. Even since its organization the state has had a law practically similar to the Maine law, which prohibited the sale of alcoholic stimulants except at wholesale. It was of no bind ing effect, save in the smaller towns where the "the moral sense" of the community was opposed to liquor-selling. In all the cities of-the state it was easy enough to purchase whisky "by the quantity," drink what was wanted, and return the remainder to the saloon-keeper, paying only for the proportion of the "quantity" consumed. The attempt to enforce absolute absti nence was a step too far. At the election upon which the question was decided the liquor interest manifested but little con cern, as they did not regard the proposi tion as at all likely to carry. But they reckoned without their host. The pro hibitionists were out in force, and carried the day. Had it not been for the ' kindly interference of the supreme court the liquor dealers would have found their occu pation gone. Another time they will no doubt see to it that their cause is not im perilled through their own inertia. The real advocates of temperance will ' THE SAlK'f Paul DAILY GLOBE, MONDAY morning, APRIL 23,1833. enjoy satisfaction* at the decision of the court in this matter. Aside from the fact that the opinion is good law, its overturn ing of the amendment is in the interest of good morals. Experience has demonstrat ed that prohibition does not prohibitthat it tempts to an infraction of law and an indulgence in that which is interdicted. In Maine and Connecticut, where prohibi tion exists in its "virgin purity," there are more drunkards in proportion to the popu lation than elsewhere in the union, while the consumption of opium and other narcotic drugs is alarming in its propor tions. The Globe recognizes the fact that alcoholic liquor is a necessary evil. It has existed and has been the cause of great harm from tho days of Noah to the present time, and all efforts to supres? it have been futile. Not so the efforts to regulate it. These have been productive of good. A wise license system, which shall place the cost of conducting the liquor-selling busi ness at such an amount a3 will keep the more disreputable class from engaging in it, has been found to prevent excess wherever tried,while the temptation to indulgence under prohibitory laws is usually found to result in excesses of the most flagrant and disgraceful character. The liquor traffic should be held strictly under surveillance, and the dealers to a rigid accountability for any infringement of such wholesome regulations as may be placed about them, but to prohibit the traffic entirely would inflict a serious in jury upon any community. For this rea son the people of lowa are to be congratu lated that the supreme judges of the state have pronounced the amendment to the organic law of the state, which was born of fanaticism and nurtured in an insane frenzy, null and void. WHAT SHALL THE TARIFF BE? The New York Sun, under the heading, "Harmonious Principles," sets forth a plat form that is worthy of mature considera tion. If it does not furnish a complete solution to the chaotic tariff discussion, it will be the part of wisdom to ascertain wherein this brief statement of principles can be improved. The party planting it self on this creed will deserve and secure success. Of that there can be no doubt. While one of the great parties is torn into factions on this subject, the Democratic party of the people will find its tower .of strength in the good faith and public jus tice to be found in the harmonious prin ciples enunciated as follows: I. Let the tariff be for revenue. It will then be protective also. 11. Let the revenue tariff be the only source of revenue. 111. Let all internal "taxes be abolished at once, except only the tax on spirits. IV. Let the tax on spirits be retained only to meet the necessity of means to pay arrear ages of pensions. When those arrearages are provided for let the spirit tax be likewise abol ished. These are principles on which all patriotic men can unto and co-operate. There is no misleading sophistry in these words, but No. 3 should be enlarged to include tobacco. They are plain to the understanding and capable of honesl application. With these principles at th< head pf the column unassailable public confidence is gained. Good governmenl and honest of public affairs will follow. Let thoughtful men heed the significance of the brief and comprehen sive statement of a sound public policy, and wholesome tariff reform. The Aitkin Age. The Aitkin Age is the name of a paper recent ly started at Aitkin by Mr. E. F. Barrett, for merly of St. Paul. It is an eight column folio sheet, acd shows by its advertising patronage that it is located in a community which appre ciates the importance of liberally supporting a local paper. Mr. Barrett is an experienced newspaper man, full of pluck and energy, and his newspaper was a success from No. 1. The people of Aitkin are to be congratulated upon having such an enterprising paper in their midst. Heretofore the town has been little known, but hereafter it will be well advertised. Tbe Jannotta Testimonial. It is gaatifying to know that the people of St. Paul are to tender Signor Jannotta a benefit in appreciation of the work he has done for the furtherance of music in St. Paul. The progress made by the Vocal society has been something wonderful and it is only the beginning. If the society can produce, a3 it certainly has done the Stabat Mater of Rossini in such an ac ceptable manner with the short period of practice it has had, it is safe to expect great things of it in tho future. The concert will be a musical event and entirely of local talent, of which the citi zens of our Saintly city should feel proud. The first part of the program will be almost entirely changed from last Tues day's, so that those who attended the last concert will have an almost entire change of numbers, while the Stabat Mater will be produced even tetter than on the first oc casion. One feature of the concert will be a grand march, produced by the signor, which took the first prize at the great mu sical festival at Boston, and which created such a furor at the time. Besides the vocal solos will tbe accompanied by the orchestra, instead of piano, which will be a very decided im provement. Still another attraction has been added, which is a very marked one. The services of Miss Marie Geist, the well known and accomplished cello artist, have been se cured for the occasion, and she will con tribute a cello solo in the overture to William Tell. It will thus be seen that those who propose to give Signor Jannotta this testimonial do not intend to have any lack of attractions. The hall is to be in charge of a com mittee of young gentlemen who will act as ushers, and floral decoration is not to be overlooked. Altogether the event prom ises to be a grand affair, and no doubt will be attended by all our music loving citi zens. It is safe to predict that a more brilliant audience has never been assem bled in our city than will be on this occa sion. Falling Cornices. The necessity of removing all the pro jecting limestone corners and projecting caps to windows was again demonstrated yesterday. About 9:30 yesterday morning a portion of the projecting cap stones of two windows in the Gotzian block, on Third street, below th_ Merchants hotel, fell to the pavement below. Officer Gib bons sent several 6labs of the stone to the City hall. A small part of the stones that fell lodged on the big sign, where they now remain. Fortunately no one happened to bo on the sidewalk where the stones fell, and conse quently no one was injured. Had they fallen on a week day when the street was crowded, as it usually is, some one would in all probability have been killed. The work of removing all projecting stones should be continued till all danger in this respect has been removed. Many will b; irresistab.y artiacted to the lively race on skates, at the Wis*wam, Monday evening, 28d inst. The Concert, The benefit concert giv«n last evening by Seibert's orchestra at Turner hall was a a splendid one, and a very suitable closing up of a grand season. These concerts have been well patronized all winter, by Ameri cans, as well as by Germans, and the grade of music furnished has been better, both in quality and rendition, than ever before. The orchestra has been larger, more talent has been called into requisition, and this has enabled Mr. Seibert to attempt more elaborate works than ever before. This is, however, a mere earnest of what may be expected in the future. When the concerts are ren dered as they will be next fall, still further improvements and additions will be made. This is the very purpose and object of them. Tho programme last night was a grand one, and nearly all the selections were loudly applauded, the leading and princi pal one being the piano concerto by Miss Geist, with orchestral accompani ment. This is an elaborate * and difficult composition by Mendelssohn, and received a very .scholarly, careful, and intelligent interpretation, by this lady. All parts of it, especially the rapid runs, were brought out with remark able distinctness, and in a manner to show that an artist of the first order was engaged in setting forth the musical ideas of the great German composer. Miss Geist has recently come to St. Paul, and has been beet known as a cello artist, but last even ing she showed that she was quite as ac complished on the piano. This lady has recently opened a conservatory of music on Tnird street, above the Metropolitan, in the rooms formerly occupied by Prof. M*_nner, and will without doubt receive a liberal patronage as soon as her superior method of teaching is known. The audience encored her most vociferously and would not be put off. She was not pre pared to respond, a3 the concert is long, but after a little delay she repeated the last part of it. She was made the recipient'of a basket of beautiful flowers and altogether created quite a furore. Miss Schonarth gave a pleasant vocal solo and was en cored. One of the most beautiful things ever given in that hall was the violin duet by Mr. Muehlenbruch and Mr. Stevenin, with orchestral accompaniments. Mr. Holdt furnished a very pleasing cello solo which was encored. The orchestral work throughout, and there was a good deal of it, was rather better than usual. Death of Frauk Winter. Yesterday morning the body of Frank Winter, a former well-known citizen of this city, arrived in St. Paul on the Chi cago, St. Paul & Omaha road, ha hiving died on the train at 10:15 the nijht be fore, a short distance this side of Madison. The deceased was formerly an engineer on the St. Paul & Duluth road, and about four or five years ago, when the round house at Duluth burned, he rushed into the building and succeeded in bringing his engine out of the flames and saving it. In doing this, however, he was very seriously burned about the face and head. He presented a horrible sight when he came out of the building with his engine. He was under the doctor's care for a very long time and our citizens will readily cull to mind; the fact that the deceased for ...any weary months walked our streets with a silk handkerchief tied over his face, his eves not being able to bear the light of day. He afterwards went to New York where it was reported that he had patented a rice shell ing machine, for which he had been offered and had refused $200,000. He has resided most, if not all the time, in New York city, since he left here. It is supposed that he died of consumption. His remains were taken to the undertaking rooms of Messrs. McCarthy <_. Donnelly, where they were prepared for burial. Hon. X,. ii. Hodges. The people throughout the state speak of the death of Hon. L. B. Hodges, of St. Paul, as a public loss and calamity. A man has not lived in vain when, after his death, he receives just praise and com mendation like the following from the St. Cloud Times: Leonard B. Hodges, who was the real origina tor of the timber culture project, which hr.s done and is destined to do sa much for the prairie regions, died in St. Paul on Saturday. **The good that men do lives after them," is a truthful sayir-g, but never more so than in the case of the subject of this paragraph. His works will live, flourish and grow into a monu ment as enduring as the pyramids. Generations hence will bless him for the inheritance lie be queathed them. ' Rob-on and Crane To->ight.

[Salt Lake Tribune.] They sat around the White house stove yesterday swapping lies, and when Jackson had exhausted his store Jones opened his sample case and began: "I was down in Water canon, southeast Nevada, last fall, near Mormon spring, where the water rushes through and under a mountain thirty-five miles across " "Tunneled perhaps," said Jackson. "No, it's a natural water course, and comes out boiling on 'tother side, then runs off in a big stream." "How does it perforate the mountain V said Jackson. "There's a series of beautiful falls, with nice steps leading down, then a deep pool as clear as crystal, with plenty of mountain trout sporting at the bottom. One day a band ot Apache Indians pitched their wick iups near this stream, and an old buck and a squaw, hearing the waters rushing below, went down the natural stairway to the stream. The old buck seeing the trout in the bottom made his squaw dive for them." "And did she do it?" asked Jackson. "You bet, for Indian bucks won't stand foolishness. But the squaw,didn't come up. She went clear under that mountain and came out 'tother side, thirty-five miles." "And did it drown her?" said Jackson, who had become very much interested in the fate of the squaw. "No; she came out dripping wet with a tw*> pound trout in her mouth and one in each hand." The Peace Centennial. N_wb__g, N.

WAR AMONG THE DOCTORS, A Blow at the New Code of Ethic* in the Academy of Medicine — Austin Flint, Jr.* Resolutions and the Successful Car rying of Them in Spite of an Eje*e*dlngly Vigorous Opposition. [New York Sun, April 20. 1 A commotion was created at last night's meeting of the Academy of Medicine by the introduction of the following resolu tions by Dr. Austin Flint, Jr.: Whereas, The New York Academy of medi cine adopted in its by-laws, as its standard of medical ethics, the code of ethics of tho Ameri can Medical association; and Whereas, Each newly-elected member of the academy is required to sign its constitution and by-laws; be it Resolved, That the committee on admissions is hereby instructed to report to the academy for election as resident fellows no physician who is known to the committes to be in opposition to the code of the academy, and who, as a conso qaence, cannot consistently sign the by-laws of the academy. Resolved, That these instructions to the com mittee on admissions be continued in force unt'd the American Medical association shall have modified or repealed its code of ethics, and such modification and repeal shall have been adopted by the academy, or until tho academy shall ha*« 6 modified or repealed its by-laws referring to medical ethics. As soon as the resolutions were seconded Dr. C. R. Agnew leaped to his feet, saying he was surprised at the surreptitious man ner in which Dr. Flint had brought them before the meeting. "It was evident," he continued, "by the rhetorical way in which he introduced them, by the large attend ance of those favorable to them, and by the fact that those who were opposed to them were not notified that they would be brought up this evening, that Dr. Flint was prepared to have them passed." Dr. Agnew hoped that time would be granted for the attendance of those who were against the resolutions, and moved that they be laid on the table. Dr. Agnew's motion was lost. The question on the adoption of the res olution then came up. Dr. D. B. St. J. Roosa said that Dr. Flint was unworthy his distinguished father, who had said that the proper place for such dissensions was the County Medical society. "This," said Dr. Roosa, "is not a spontaneous uprising. It has been created by a secret society that sends its orders to its members to be pres ent on certain occasions. It has all the artifices of the methods of a political party. [Derisive laughter, which was quelled by President Barker.] I did not know of this action until too late to inform my friends of it. To characterize the ef forts by which this resolution has been in troduced j would be unparliamentary. It originated with mercenary " The con clusion of the doctor's remarks were lost in shouts of "Order! Order!" The president, who had a cold, arose and hoarsely exclaimed,as he pounded his gavel on his desk, that he would have order, and that members who were speaking should be protected. Dr. Roosa continued: "I appeal to the regular profession to al low us (in an ironical tone), who are ir regular, a chance to be represented on another occasion." Dr. Flint got permission of the meeting to reply to Dr.Roosa's remarks. He said: "We have no reference to the state or county medical societies in the resolutions. The New York Academy of Medicine is the only one entitled to recognition in the American Medical association. It is true we notified our friends; but we have no secret organization. The simple question is, Will the Academy place itself in a proper light before the country?" Dr. Agnew asked permission of the chair to put a question to Dr. Flint. The ques tion was: "As the gentleman has confessed to cramming the meeting, I would like to know the methods he used." [Groans and derisive laughter.] Dr. Weir thought due notice of the intro duction of the resolutions should have been given. The resolutions were passed, 58 to 25. Dr Agnew obtained permission of the meeting to speak again. He said: "These gentlemen think because they have passed these resolutions by a bare majority that the principles embodied in them will stand. But they will not. Eternal truth is above them. Love of freedom is above them. [Jeers and laughter.] You may jeer. You will remember how Disraeli was once jeered; but the time came when he was heard. lam a much smaller man than Disraeli, but the time will come when you will hear me. [Renewed jeers.] I am willing to be put down if,the Academy can afford it. The statutes of the state compel every society to recognize the new code of ethics. I cannot be dragooned to obey the behests of a certain number of gentle who, ku-klux-like, come here to put this -e=nlnt; through." Dr. Flint moved to reconsider the mct'cn by which the resolutions were carried. Dr. Goulev seconded the motion, which was carried. Dr. Gouley then moved that the question be postponed indefinitely. This was done to prevent the bringing up of the question again. Dr. Agnew asked: ''Is it Dr. Flint's ob ject to throttle the Academy?" "Undoubtedly," said Dr. Flint. Dr. Flint then introduced the following: Resolved, That the Academy hereby disavows ai_> sympathy with the action of tho State Medi cal soo'ety, which has put the profession of the sta f, thr ugh its state and county societies, in a'i attitude of opposition to the medical profes sion of the rest of the United States. Dr. Aguew was the first to speak after the chair had stated the question. He said he had been jeered and looked at threateningly by some of the members of the Academy. "But," he continued, "I am not afraid of the displeasure of men who have organized a society to throw the Academy into anarchy. I can boast of two lines of ancestry who stood up for their rights. I defy the gentlemen. am astonished and ashamed at their efforts to stifle the freedom of opinion. If that privilege cannot be found in a scientific body, where, then, can it be found?" The resolution was passed. Dr. Weir arose and tendered his resigna tion as vice president of the Academy,say ing he recognized the law of the State Medical society and not that of the Acad emy in the matter of the code of ethics. Drs. Roosa and Agnew al>o presented their resignations. Dr. S. S. Purple, who was in the rear of the hall, created a storm of hisses saying,'*! hope the gentlemen have paid their dues." President Barker also offered his resignation, but shortly after ward withdrew it. A half-dozen other members announced their intention of re signing. The Academy adjourned to meet on the first Tuesday in October, before a vote- -vis taken 01 tM resignations. The C >min 7 Craze.

Knocking at a Cabin Door for Admission When it Rains. [Peoria Freeman.] " "I hear, Bill," said one, "that you claim to have killed the biggest blacksnake in Tazewell county," said he to the other. "I believe the neighbors give me that distinction," said the one addressed as Bilf. "But them fellers out there in the neck of the woods don't know what a big snake man I am. I will tell you what kind of experience I had in Ohio, down near Circleville. I was out hunting one day. In passing an old tumble-down cabin it commenced to rain and I stepped in. The rain poured down, I tell you. Soon I heard a knock eking at the door,and on going to open it there stood a big blacksnaKe. He had been pounding his head on the door for admittance. I always was a kind-hearted man, so I let his snakeship in. Soon there was another knock, and I went to the door again, and in crawled a blacksnake. I stood in that cabin two hours, and during that time I let in 3,553 blacksnakes by ac tual count." A Touching Eulogy, Tho funeral of John Mills, a former journalist, and for several years the pri vate secretary of Representative Murch, of Maine, took place April 19 at Washington. Col. R. G.lngersoll delivered the follow ing oration: Again we are face to face .with this great mystery that shrouds this world. We ques tion but there is no answer. Out on the wild waste of seas there drifts no spar. Over the desert of death the sphinx gazes forever, but never speaks. In the very May of life another heart has ceased to beat. Night has fallen upon noon, but he lived, he loved, and was loved. Wife and children pressed their kisses on his lips. This is enough. The longest life contains no more. This filrs the vase of joy. He who lies here, clothed with the perfect peace of death, was a kind and loving husband, and a good father, a generous neighbor, an honest man, and these words build a monument of glory over the humblest grave. He was always a child, sincere and frank; as full of hope as spring. He divided all time in to to-day and to-morrow. To-morrow was without a cloud, and of to-morrow he bor rowed sunshine for to-day. He was my friend. He will remain so. That the liv ing often become estranged from the dead is true. He was not a Christian. In the Eden of his hope there did not crawl and coil the serpent of eternal pain. In many languages he sought the thoughts of men, and for himself he sought the prob lems of the world. He accepted the phil osophy of Auguste Comte. Humanity was his God; the human race the Supreme Being. In that Supreme Being he rested. He believed that we are indebted for what we enjoy to the labor, the self-de nial, the heroism of the human raoe, and that as we have plucked the fruit of what others planted, we, in thankfulness, should plant for others yet to be. With him im mortality was the eternal consequences of his own good acts. He believed that every good thought, every disinterested deed hastens tbe harvest of universal good. This is a religion that enriches poverty; that enables us to bear the sorrows of the saddest life; that peoples even solitude with the happy millions yet to be; a reli gion yet to be, not of selfishness and fear, but of love and hope that gladly bears the burdens of the unborn. In the presence of death how beliefs and dogmas wither and decay; how loving words and deeds burst and bloom. Pluck from the tree of any life these flowers and there remain but the barren thorns of bigotry and creed. All wish for happi ness beyond this life. All hope to meet again the loved and lost. In every heart grows this sacred flower of eternal hope. Immortality is a word that hope through all ages has been whispering to love. The miracle of thought we cannot understand. The mystery of death and hope we can not comprehend. This chaos of the world has never been explained. The golden bridge of life from gloom emerges, and our shadow rests. Beyond this we do not know. Fate is speechless, destiny is dumb, and the secret of the future has never yet been told. We love; we wait; we hope. The more we love the more we fear; upon the tenderest heart the deepest shadows fall. All paths, whether filled with thorns or flowers, end here. Here success and failure are the same. The rag of wretchedness and the purple robe of power lose difference and distinction in this de mocracy of death; character alone sur vives, goodness alone survives; love alone is immortal. But to these comes a time when the favored lips of life, long for the cool, delicious kiss of death. Tired of the dust and glare of the day, they hear with joy the rustling garments of the night. What can we say of death? What can wo say of the dead? Where they have gone reason cannot go, and from therce revelation has not come; but let us believe that over the cradle nature bends and smiles, and lovingly above the dead in benediction holds her outstretched hands. Roman Names. [Gentleman's Magazine. ] After a man's first name came the name of his clan, which always ended in ius. The ancient Roman clans seem, like the Highland clan of to-day, to have been often designated from the name of a sup posed ancestor. As the descendants of Donald are called Macdonald, so the de scendants of Marcus were called Marcius, those of Quintus Quintius, and those of Publius, Manius, Servius and Lucius bore the names of Publius, Manillius. Servil lius and Lucillius. When all the members of a clan have the same surname, and the stock of first nameB have from any cause become limited, it is obvious that a good deal of confusion may arise. The High landers obviate this inconvenience by a resort to descriptive nick name?. Now just as in the Highlands people might be distinguished between two Fergus Macdonalds by calling one Long-beard and the other Curly-head, just so in Roman history we read of a Titus Quintius Barbatus, and a Titus Quintius Cincinnatus. The Romans, how ever, went a step further than the High landers have done, for with them the nick name became hereditary as a family sur name. There were many Romans who (either from their special celebrity or be-, cause their surnames were extremely com mon) bore, in addition to the regular set of three names, an individual nickname called the agnomen. It is worth noting, as a relic of prehistoric usage, that Roman women had no regular names except those indicating the clan to which they belonged. The eleven daughters of a Cornelius were to the outside world just Cornelia, and n-thiEg else. In the family circle they would, of course, be distinguished by de signations analogous to our modern pet names; but on this subject our informa tion is singularly limited. The complex ity of the Roman name system was not easily understood by Greeks and Jews, and the Roman names in the New Testament are curiously confused. Sometimes a man is spoken of by his first name, as Gains, Publius or Marcus; sometimes by his clan name, as Julius or Cornelius, and some times by his surname, as Pudens or Niger. In Simon the Cyrenian we have a remark able example of the mixture of languages brought about by the Roman conquests; a native of Africa bearing a Hebrew name, calls one of his sons by tho Greek name Alexander and another by the Roman sur name Rufus. ■ ■ GOV. HUBBARD'S DAUGHTER. She Marries Her Father's Coachman, and After Four Years Divorces Him. [Hartford, (Conn,) Letter.] The sequel to the elopement of Miss Nellie Hubbard, the youngest daughter of Ex-Gov. Hubbard, and her marriage to her father's coachman, Frederick Shepard, four years ago, has just been made known to her friends here, who learned for the first time to-day that Mrs. Shepard had secured a divorce from her husband. The story of Miss Hubbard's hasty action, in deceiving her father and marrying a man so far be neath her, not only in the social but in the intellectual scale, has had the ending which such stories generally do haverepentance at leisure for what was done in haste. Miss Hubbard, who was at the. time a young girl, scarcely eight een years of age, was secretly married to Shepard at Westfi-ld, Mass., on March 11,1871), while her father's family were absent from Hartford. Shep ard, who was about thirty years old, had acted as coachman for ex- Gov. Hubbard for about a year and a half. So far as his character went, very little could bo urged against him, except that he had formerly been a hackman, a fact from which it was argued that he must have been accustomed to associate with characters of doubtful morality. He was a young fellow of good, address, and did not drink or swear, but he was very illiterate. Miss Nellie under took to teach him to read and write, _n_, while engaged in this laudable effort to benefit his condition, she lost, or imagined that she lost her heart. The fact of the marriage was not made known to ex-Gov. Hubbard until March 22, eleven days after the ceremony, when the marriage certificate was sent to him by the groom's parents. His daughter was preparing to leave the house to join her husband when this docu ment was placed in his hands. The heart broken father confronted her with the cer tificate, and she then candidly acknowl edged that she was married to Shepard— declared with the enthusiasm of a woman in love that her husband was fully worthy of her, and left the house to join him, de spite the attempts of the grief-stricken father to restrain her. From that time to this Nellie's name, it is said, has been a forbidden word in the household of ex-Gov. Hubbard. The old gentleman disowned the girl who had hitherto been his favorite child, and positively refused to receive any communication from either her or her husband. After the sensation created by her mar riage had died away Mrs. Shepard fell quietly out of sight of her former aristo cratic friends, and she would have been almost forgotten but for her proceedings, to secure a divorce, which have once more revived the memory of her romantic mar riage. After the wedding the couple re mained in this city for about two years. For a few days they kept themselves per fectly secluded, and Shepard feared to show himself in public lest he should be assaulted by his former master and father in law, but finally, finding that the ex Gov ernor took no more notice of him than if he were dead, he secured a clerkship in a. Hartford shoe store, where he worked faithfully. His young wife had plenty of money at this time —some that was hers in her own right, and more, it is said, from the ever-ready purse of her heart broken mother, who, while bowing meekly to the will of her husband, could not sup press ail love for her darling child. The couple lived very happily for a time, and a child was born to tbem, a girl, to cement, their union. About two years ago they re moved to New Haven,where Shepard start ed a large livery stable in State street with money furnished by his wife and her friends. The stable is connected with a large hotel, and yields quite a revenue to Shepard, who is still running it. They en gaged a cozy cottage in a pleasant street, and here for a time all went well. But the domestic peace was to be shat'ered in New Haven, Mrs. Shepard became tired of her unlettered husband, and they began to find out that their tastes in al most everything ran in counter directions. Shepard attended strictly to his business and Mrs Shepard, who was not received with open arms by New Haven society, showed her contempt of the fashionable world, of which she had formerly been a belle, by purchasing a dog cart and a handsome pony, with which she appeared in the streets, elegantly attired, on every pleasant day. The beautiful woman nat urally attracted admirers, and among them is said to be an aged and wealthy manufacturer of New Haven, and another a millionaire of New York, whs frequents the Turf club in that city. Shepard be came jealous of his wife, with or without cause, and the result was that the two separated several mouths ago and have not, lived together since. When the breach occurred Shepard went to live at a hotel, and his wife remained in the cottage with her child. The husband called frequently to see his child, and on such occasions Mrs. Shepard left the two together. Some four months ago she gave up her cottage and went to live in the Sel den house at New Haven. The breach be tween her and her husband was constant ly widening, although it was very apparent that Shepard still idolized his wife. Some three months since, when the rumor that, she was about to seek a divorce was first circulated, a friend of Shepard spoke to him on the subject. He cried like a baby then, and said that he had always been true to her, and should^ always love her de votedly. He acted like a child that was being punished, refused to believe that his wife would ask for a divorce, and seemed to be confident that she would ultimately return to live with him. Mrs. Shepard's lawyer in moving for the divorce was L. N. Blydenburg, who figured as the counsel for the Malley boys in their trial for the murder of Jennie Cramer.. The cause for which the divorce was grant ed is said to be abandonment, Shepard making no counter-charges. Great efforts have been made to keep the fact that a di vorce has been granted secret in Connecti cut, the lawyers and the judge doing all in their power to conceal the record from the public. It is thought by some that Mrs. Shepard, having disembarrassed herself of her plebeian husband, will be welcomed back to her father's house; but the general opinion is that ex Gov. Hubbard will never recall the denunciation which he pro nounced against his daughter four years, ago. Judge Gresham's Successor. Evansville, Ind., April 22. — The bar of this city to-day joined in a petition to the president to appoint Hon. Daniel B. Kum ler to the bench of the federal court of the district of Indiana to succeed Judge Gres ham, but recently appointed postmaster general.

The sentiment among citizens generally here is warmly in favor of Mr. Kumler, and his appointment would be received with general satisfaction throughout southern Indiana. Quite Well, Thankee.
