thrives in the sands of the otherwise barren Isle dri

of them was forwarded in the government steamer Sm
to Sable Island. The unfastidious ponies took sal
kindly to the soliary shrub, made the island bui
their home, and became wild in time. Recent In

W He Never Surrendered It to Gen. Grant.
The Richmond Dispalch contains the
r following communication:
Messrs. Editors-I am sorry that you
h allow to pass unchallenged the item in
your paper of this morning from the
e Bangor (Me.) Wliig about Grant's mag
i, nanimity in declining to receive Lee's
is sword, etc. Several years ago you pub
is lished a letter from your correspond
ent, " Viator," giving Gen. Lee's
a own account of the sutrrender, in
>f which he denied most emphatically
if that he ever tendered his sword
to Gen. Grant, or had an idea of doing
so. In Personal Reminiscences of Lee
there is also a full statement of Gen.
s Lee's own account of the surrendelo, the
y following extract from which settles the
question: "Gen. Lee said that when
he met Gen. Grant they exchanged po
lite salutations, and he stated to him at
once that he desired a conference
in reference to the subject mat
ter of their correspondence. 'Gene
' ral Grant returned you your sword,
did he not, General?' one of the
company asked. The old hero, straight
ening himself up, replied in most em
phatic tones: 'No, sir! he did not. He
had no opportunity to do so. I was de
termined that the side-arms of officers
should be exempt by the terms of the
surrender, and of course I did not offer
him mine. All that was said about
swords was that Gen. Grant apologized
to me for not wearing his own sword,
saying that it had gone off in his
baggage, and he had been unable
to get it in time.' This spoils a
great deal of rhetoric about Grant's
magnanimity in returning Lee's
sword,' and renders as absurd as
it is false the attempt of Northern ar- t
tists to put the scene on canvas or into F
statuary. Even Gen. Grant's conni- c
vance at this so-called "historic scene" A
will not save it when the world knows
that R. E. Leo said that nothing of the I
sort occurred. The sword scene, the
" historic apple-troee," etc., are mere in
ventions of army correspondents, which d
so please the fancy of the "saviors of f,
the Union " that they are being con- r
stantly repeated. Grant's terms were c
magnanimous; but he knew full well c
that they were the only terms which tj
Lee would have accepted. n

[Uncomnfortably Actilve MSate of that
Great Safety Valve.
[Detroit Free Prose.]
An uncomfortable account of the
present condition of Mount Vesuvius
was given by Prof. Boyd Dawkins at
the meeting of the Manchester Geologi
cal society on January 30. Prof, Daw
kins, it seems, visited Vesuvius a week
or two ago, and on arriving at the mouth
of the crater found that it was filled
with a dense vapor like a fog. A "low,
roaring noise" could be heard, and oc
casionally there was a flash of light,
which was probably the reflected glare
of the lava surging about in the volcano.
Undismayed by these symptoms of in
ternal disturbance, the Professor gal
lantly went down seven or eight
feet below the edge of the cra
ter, and found that he could
light pieces of paper in holes which
he dug with his hammer in the
black ash on the inside. Everything,
indeed, indicated a tendency to erup
tion, and, according to the accounts
issued by Professor Palmnieri, one of the
volcano s periodical attacks of fever
may be expected in a comparatively
short time. Professor Dawkins is of
opinion that Mount Vesuvius performs
the duty of a safety valve to a very
large portion of the earth. This may
be the case, but the melancholy part of
the affair is that the earth should re
quire such a safety valve, and more
over, that its needs in this respect be
come more urgent each century of its
existence. Professor Phillips, who has
made Vesuvius a special object of
attention, has come to the con
clusion that the volcano has become
far more energetic during the pres
ent century than it has ever been before.
The first known eruption was that
which overwhelmed Pompeii and the
neighboring country A. D. 79. It was
not until the seventeenth century that
the number of eruptions in the hundred
years was as many as four. In the
eighteenth century the number rose to t
twenty-three, and during the present
century twenty-six eruptions have
already occurred. How many more may
take place during the remaining twenty- i
three years Prof. Dawkins is unable to
say. All he knows is that the mountain 1
is in a very restless state, and may "go
off" at any moment. On the other
hand, as pointed out by a member of
the society, reports made about Janu
ary of expected eruptions ought not to
be noticed so much as at other times, as
the inhabitants of Naples make the most
of such reports at this season in order
to attract sightseers.
His shallowness of Policy and Powers of
i Conversation.
[Mary Clemmer in Cincinnati Commercial.]
To people acquinted with that politi
cal gentleman's tactics, Blaine's beau
- tiful deportment at Mrs. Hayes' recep
tion, on Saturday, was amusing. The
report in the evening papers of the
gushing reception he received there,
was equally amusing. The proof-sheets
of his speech, which was sent to every
reporter in Washington but two,
didn't stir the people of the
land as he expected. They were
perfectly willing he should make an ass
of himself, but declined patting him on
the back while he did it. But if the
people wouldn't applaud nor echo his
war whoop, he could go to the White
House and set those seal eyes of his
softly upon Mrs. Hayes, and dazzle five
hundred other women with the corus
cations of his conversation, and set an
indefinite number of men to saying for
the ten thousandth time, "Jim Blaine is
just the smartest and best-hearted fel
low on earth." And then he could write
a little paragraph for the papers telling
all about it.

The Beautiful Way In which Me Fills

[Mary Clemmer in Cincinnati Commerolal.]
Senator Davis looks as if he enjoyed
himself vastly more than in the Supreme
Court room. All the justices there
look uncomfortable, whether they feel
so or not, sitting in lonely state in a
straight line on that lofty "bench" in
their troublsome gowns. No wonder
they all get so enormously fat
and heavy jowled. Judge Davis'
elephantine figure, folded in that
long-tailed robe of satin, was a sight
for commiseration. Now in a morning
coat he looks considerably relieved.
He swings his Senatorial chair about,
and throws his mighty arms out over
the other desks, spreads himself, and at
last has room to spread. Heo has a
strong and noble countenance. There
is not another left in the Supreme Court
room at once so benignant and trust-in
spiring. It is emphatically "a good
face," while it is a strognly intellectual
one. What a pity he cannot subdue
that "pornderosity" of his sufficiently to
leave the action of that large brain un
clogged. That he has so much, and
uses it so well, in spite of all, proves
him indeed a mighty man. The resolu
tions of the bar of the Supreme Court,
in which they record "their high sense
of the learning, ability,.love of justice,
and fearless independence which he
brought to the discharge of his judicial
duties," area record of which the retired
judge may well be proud. But he will
find in the Senate of the United States
a larger and more congenial sphere
with a future!

The present attitude of Mr. Hayes
toward the Fraudulent Governors,
Chamberlain and Packard, brings to
mind the story of the good little boy
and his grandmother. The little boy
was the special pet of the old lady, and
the two wore discussing the relative dE -
greo of affection of fAch toward the
other. Finally the old lady resolved on
a test of her granchlid s º devotion.
"Johnny," said she, "if either you or
I had to die, which had you rather it
should be ?" Johnny pondered the
question a few moments, and then sud
denly brightening up, replied, cheer
fully: "Well, grandma, I think I had
rather you should .die, for I think I
could stand the loss better than you
could." This is about the case with the
three fraudulent Executives we have
named. It is death to Packard and
Chamberlain to go out, and it is death
for Hayes to have them stay in. Though
the latter still has an ardent admira
tion, closely approaching affection, for
both the others, he thinks he can stand
their loss a good deal better than they
could his; and therefore he blandlyasks
them to commit karl-karl in his behalf.

Warmoth is out with a patent for set

poses that the Logislature shall be re

are uncontested. They are then to set

the returns for (fovernor, both parties
agreeing to abide by the result. This
he admits would give an approximate
Republican majority of twelve on joint
ballot, but he says seven of the twelve
are not particularly friendly to Packard
and could be relied on to secure a fair
count. Two months ago this proposi
tion might have seemed fair but since
then the country has learned not to de
Dend upon those impartial, judicial
minded Republicans for a fair count.
No compromises hiding ingenious tricks
need be suggested for the Louisiana

A Palace Car Decision.

CINcINNATI, March 18.-An important

Court Saturday settling the rights of

The case was brought up in the United

for a permanent injunction, which was
granted yesterday by Judge Swing. The
decision is considered very important,
