Gibson f, his letter to Mr. Lionel Adams, that the "honor of the nomination was y unaolloited by him." If that isthe what called him to the city at that time? at publio duty or necessity required his .liie e? He simply came to look after his ation. No one more fully apreciates thValuable and eminent services of the Gen than I do; but the argument used "that other man could so worthily fill the place," oneI am not prepared to accept. His con teata have already shown their high ap DreiatIl0o of hiseervices by electing him to thal Uited States Senate. If elected to the HouAe how he would be obliged to leave it in to go to the Senate. What necessity exlet now for retaining him which would not lit in 1883. StiLW, were he to receive the onation through a regularly organized congressional convention I would sup and assiat him to the best of my ability, I have no doubt that the gentlemen who to congressional honors as his successor would do the same. Taking into considera tion the manner in which he was nominated, I cannot see how he can accept it. He would osftaln have endeared himself more in the beat the people had he definitely and at e0 dealinea a nomination tendered and ob talaed in such a manner, and requested his to submit his name to a convention ly called under the established rules iaeges of the party. No "snap judg t," such as was practiced last Tuesday. be "thrust down the throate" of the peo plee thel First District. The General holds no high a position in the councils of the na and is possessed of too much honor per eanaliy to allow himself or his name to be used to further the political interests of his aom~lt hat indiscreet Iriends. There is more thisth. the public or Gen. Gibson dreams o nd which will come out in time. It s oisaimed by some of the papers that f.esonal claims should be made subservient Dparty harmony or party unity." There are o prsonal claims at issue except, per ' those of the General himself-since no was nominated, the friends of the gentlemen refusing to place them in nomination, not wishing to cause a split in the party, a responsibility whteh neither they nor ue. Gibeon can well afford to assume. It is well known that he (when elected Sen at) expressed himself as not desiring this nomination; and further, that he did not in teadeoontending or ocompeting for it; that he had had enougn, and should give some one else as opportunity. ue51a ngagain to the reasons given by the ss for this retention in office, because of his belng "more efficent at this juncture than say other man who could be chosen," I would ask again, what is likely to occur during the nast two years? What particular issues are at atake whlohWould render him more eligible than any other prominent man In his districte Should a Democratic Presdent be elected, ns probability is that Gan. Gibson would have a &eat in the Cabinet. Tanl, of itself, would neesltate a new election for BRere eatative and require a deal of hard work to arry the district. If he is Indispensable fow, and no mn can fill his place, way not eleot him in perpetuity. I confess tat I would like to hear better more cogent reasons for his renomina =to than those aivanoed by the newspapers both morning and evening) of the sixteenth t. To satisfy all partie it ls the opinion man that he should decline this-uanu nomination and submit his name to r llarly qrganisesd oungrealtnal coanven ali bet : w O i trtlAt to re.trn th nominee, no matter whom he mlght be. Jtatfrt.l, OBRE TAILLEIS CATS. KnW OLi lain, April 15, 1880, To the 3ditor of the Demootat: Undoubtedly the gentleman who signs his name "A Farmer" thinks he has a great prize In his tailless cat. If "A Farmer" was In New Orleans he could be shown about thirty tallles oats to my knowledge, and how many more I could not tell until I made inquiry about all the offspring of one Manx R.mpy, or taillese cat, named Mona. She was taken from the town of Peel, in the isle of Man, and landed in New Orleans by the steamshlp Mis sieelppl, In November, 1875. There may be many tailless oats in the oity that I do not know of, and perhaps the very cat "A Farmer" has mlght have come from New O, - leans if the ti uth was known. "A Farmer" says his oat would be a fine speculatiln for iarnum. He could not have seen the I)ilU Graphic of March 8 (to the best of my kuowi edge), because it says there was a tailless eat at the cat show In Boston. So Mr. Barnum ml ht have got a tailless cat without sending to Bayou Sara for one. If Mr. Editor or "A Farmer" has any curIosity for seeing tailless oats, I can let tlhen know where they can see as many in one house as there is in the State of Louslelana: beotles, they should call soon, no 1 think the party that owns them will be giving some of them away soon. I know he has been doing so for years. A MArx MAN. 80UI NEW BOOKS. -RODMAN, THE KaIEPSR: Southern 8ketchee. fBy (Jlineianoe Fnulmore (Gils.'l, New York, D. Appi-ton &, Co. 1H)80. New Or leans: (Geo. Ellis & Brother, j UCamp street. $l 25. In this volume, Miss Woolson has collected the sketches of Southern life which have ap peared over her name in the Atlentic, Scrib ner's, Applcton's olourml and the (Galery, during the past five or six years. I hey are the result of actual experience among the people to whom they relate, and, as the author ears, "they record real impressions." While Miss Woolson Is full of the cultured prejudice of New Egiland, she nevertheless gives what are without dou't truthful ple tures of Southern life and Sout hern opinltlne. In those sketches which are quasl-p'illtleal in their nature, dealing with the results of the wlr and ssi tl rtlntlonll dui lig the reOOil struction perlod, the author shows a rare in sight hibt the feelings of the men and w 'muen of the South. Sue'h sketchep as foimn.ia the Kvrper; Old (Jardiston, In the (,ttlon country, and Kitn David exhibit keen polllical discernment, comblued with a rare and delicate sympathy which should earn for her the appreciation of loversof truth every where, but especially here in the South,whlere ranoor, prjudilct and spite have caused so much bitterness and suffering. The last named sketch. King David, sl, in a measure, the prototype of the oo,'k which is o just now creating such a sensation at the I North, A Iiboi's Errand. David King goes Soath after the war to take charge of a col- c ored school in a little negro settlement re joicing in the name of Jubilee town. The i carelessness and improvldence of the negro c eharacter is drawn with coneumate skill. 1 How at first the ignorant blacks, attracted by 1 the novelty of the thing,were willing to learn. I Ilow the labors of the honest schoolmaster promised to bring forth good fruit, and how under his Instruction Imorovement seemed to be made. But one day there came among them "one of that class which has gone down on the page of American history knighted t with the Initials C. B. The c ptal n, the ne groes called him; and he was highly p pular already three hours of the captain being worth three weeks of David, so far as famill arity went." The individual is familiar enough to us here In Loulsiana. No space need be wasted on a desoription of him. the good work of the schoolmaster was rapidly undone. He remained for some time longer ( in Jubilee; but the negroes, under the lead of 4 the aptain, went on from bad to worse, until David, becoming disheartened and doubtful of his fitness for the work In which he was engaged, gave up the school and returned to his New Hampshire home. In the Blue Ridgle is perhaps, the most finslutehed of the series. It also deals with a product of the Inti unpleasantness-the Moon shiners of the Virginia and Tennessee moun tains. The slight thread of romance which runs through it lends it an additional In terest. The scenes of the remainder of these charm ing sketches are laid in that dreamy, peace ful section of the country comprising Nnorth eastern Georgia and Florida. Sister St. Luke, Bro. Felipa, Miss Elizabeth and The South Devil, are full of the solt blue of the sky, the scarlet swamp-blossoms, and the green and gold of the orange grove. Of these the gem i is doubtless Sister St. Luke, a sweet, happy, yet half-sad picture of the contentment pro duced by convent life; one expects momen tarily a romantic denouement; yet the ro mance falls to develop, and at the end one is glad of the disappointment. There are few books recently published that will give more pleasure in the reading than this. A STROKE OF DIPLOMACY. From the French of Victr Cheihulhez. New York: D. Ap pleton & Co. (Handy Volume Series). New Orleans: George EllIs & Brother, No. 82 Camp street. Paper, 3J cents. A racy, piquant novellette, possessing con elderable originality of plot. The charactor of the odd and piquant old Marquis, who so cleverly rescues his neuhew from a diese trone marriage, is admirable drawn. The lo triguing young widow and the managing mamma was also skillfully painted. The mock seriousness with which the anti quarlau researches of the young love-lorn Egyptologist are introduced is very enjoy able. One watches with regret the railway car riage bearing the uncle and nephew away from Lausanne, or their return to Paris. Two hours have been pleasantly spent in i their campany, without perplexing surmises 4 about the denouement. The story is so charm- 1 ingly told that one does not desire to hasten I the end. The translation is excellent. The lightness and spirit of the original are very I well rendered. THE RETURN OF THE PRINCEss. By Jacques Vincent. New York: D. Appleton & Co. (Handy Volume Series.) New Orleans: Geo. Ellis & Bro., 82 Camp street. Price, 20 cents. Au excellent story of modern Egyptian life. The Princess is the daughter of a prominent official of the Khedives government. She had been sent to France when a child, and had there received a modern European edu cation. At the date of the opening of the story, which is told entirely by herself in a series of letters, she has been sent for by her father and returns to Cairo. The contrast between her strange, new existence at the Egyptian capital and her former life In Paris is charmingly recounted in her letters. A marriage is "arranged" between the Princess and a certain Mohammed Pasha, of great influence at the court, to which she accedes. But in the meanwhile she falls in love with another. Thedenouement is some what unusual, and is led up to very cleverly. Incidentally, the book gives, in a pleasant way, a correct account of the position of women in the East. This seems to have been, at bottom, tne motive for its writing. BOOKS RECEIVED. We have received the following new books from J. C. Eyrich, 130 Canal street: "Vignettes in Rhyme and other Verses."

DDspatehJ Judge Hakey (RBpubIoMi), tr& ~oug l Oarolina, was sitttig ithe gallery of the enate when a sharp-fa , raser-strap.look. ing fellow said to him: "Mister, can you point out to me that loferal Hamhutr murderer, Butler, of South Carolina ?" 'Certainly,' said the polite Judge' "and I will point out, also,other notables of te Senate.Don't you see that handsome Senator with light, curly hair? Well that is Conkling; and the gray-headed, bright-looking man near him is IBlaise; that large Senator is Judge Davis, of Illinois; and over there leIs Gen. John B. Gordon talking to Lamar. Don't you see that bald headed man," pointing to Lenator Edmunds; "well that is Butler, ot South Carolina." The eyes of our Yankee friend were lighted up with indignation as he replied, "Yes, I could have picked him outor a thousand"--adding a good deal that was not complimentary to the di tinguished Vermonter. The other day Senator Edmunds carne over on the Demo cratic slde, when Mr. Vest said: "Edmunds, Hampton has a good jlike on you," and the gallant Carollnla" was forced to tell the whole story. Senator Edmunds laughed heartily, and remarked that it was a compliment to be taken for so handsomea man as GeU. Butler. The fact, however. is that Mr. E lmunde's face strongly indicates justice and wisdom, with no traoe of mercy in it, unless when he is talking to Mr. Thurman or somne personal favorite and then it is as genial and pleasant as possible. A MIRIlACLE WOIIKER. One of the Remarkable Stories Now on its Travels. WYTHEVI.LE, Va., April 1:i.--For some weeks past the people of Scott county have been terrlhly excited over the ml.'a(hl,'s which are alleged to have been performed tby Richard Miller or. that county. Ills fame LHas tx tended all over this section of the State, alld hundrenis of the alllloted are dalily visittlng him. Miller lea middlie-aged rman, o mployed as the kI*per of M MulinI's mill, ne. r E4111 vitle. He Is deeply religious, and claims to have had a dream a mouth ago In whtch the idea was Impressed upon him that with God's hilp he coald perform wonderful cores simply through faith. He says that the next d sy af'.er the drtain, after fervent prayer, lie healed a sick man by touching him. The il tellgence of such a mniracle went all over the country, and the a Illlited of all kinds come to hhim and were healit,, It is said, by the simple touch of his anld. Yesterdav G. N. Wertz, a photogrl'pher' at Abtugdn, visited Miller In coimpanty with a paralytic uncle, the seat of paralyeslielng in tile mouith, and the oman therloby was deprived of both peenoh and hearing. Mill. r looked at the afllticted man, ant, after a shoo t prayer, touched hiln aind told him that before he reached horne he would tie well. List night, as Mr. Wertz entered the door of his house, It is said that his hearing and speedh came back to him, and to-day he is apparently hale and hearty. Miss Ireom Newton, a ueautiful young lady of Bristol, Tune., hol tless from rheun ttlm, was brought to Miller last week, aud when an attempt was munle to lift her In the car rlage, she rose from the sedan chair without asslstanot, it Is said, and declared that sithe was entirely well. One of the most wonder ful of the alleged miracles of Miller was the cure of Mr. Peter Whltesell, wno has been for some years alllcted with cancer. 'Tho cancer was touched, and lo three days, ac cording to reports, had disappeared. The miracle worker is an exoeedingly modest man, and always indignantly doclines any compensation for his services, alleging that he is but the humble instrument of GOA. He takes no credit, to himself, and the people in his section believe firmly in his miraculous powers. QUEER HAPPENINGS. A boy aged fifteen, of Columbus county, N. C., was bitten on the wrist by a black spider, and he died in a few minutes. The bite was on a vein. Atlanta, Ga., is puzzled over a perfect Iron wedge that was taken from the middle of a blue granite rook found forty-six feet under the ground. During the recent floods in Greenville, 8. C., large flocks of wild geese went into the city, and many persons enjoyed shooting them from their back piazzas. When Ansell Randell, of Montville Mo., was dying, he demanded that there be no mourning at his funeral. lls coffin and tomb et -ne he had prepared beforehand. The school exhibition at Seneca Falls had to he indefinitely postponed, more than two thirds of the children having been taken sud denly 111 with measles. For thirty years Mrs. Martha P. Graves of South Killingly, Conn., had been deaf. bhe recently dreamed that her hearing had been restored, and on the second morning follow log she awoke with hearing perfect. A young wife, with one child, living at Jamestown, was sold to another man by her husband for $50. She is now at the house of her prospective father-in-law, waiting for the son to earn money to close the contract. An Illinois youth, husking corn in a field near the railroad, saw a new locomotive, with a red smoke stack. He became frightened and ran to the house, crying: "That 'ere en glne Is going to bust, surei it's red hot clean to the top of the stovepipe. Florence Seymark's father, of Elizabeth City, N. C., shot her lover in the shoulder ltheo nlghlt before he was to elope with her. She led from her room uin her night clothes. and, jolning her intended, was married before the father discovered her absence. Tulare Lake bed in HIanford, Cal., Is live milers from where it was four years ago. On the land reclaimed by the change are found the remains of a corral and cabi,l and irriga ting ditches can be traced running in straight lines. Wheat is now growing on the bed of the old lake. Six hundred barrels of whisky were lost by the sinking of the steamer Arabian in the Missouri river twenty-two years ago. All attempts to raise it failed; but now the course of the river has changed, and the whisky, which now lies forty feet under the sand, is to be dug for. As a young couple stood waiting at the de pot for a train, at Balleton Spa, the gentle man, to protect his neck from the biting air, opened his satchel and took from it what he thought was an embroldered searf. AfteLr no ticing the quizzing smiles of the faces of the spectators, he went into the depot, and, look ing at the mirror, saw that his neck was en circled by a clocked stocking of his bride. Queer taste is exhibited by the family of Teiford, who was murdered by George W. Hays in Marion county, Ill., in 1879. Over his grave is a granite shaft, surmounted by a large butcher knife, and on the atone is the inscription: Murdered by George W. Hays, Harvey Telford. Died January 18, 1879, Aged 22 years, 6 months, 6 days. In the herd-house of Overholt & Crouse, Summit county, Utah, a wildcat took posses sion of a bed forseveral nights. The herders quit the building, but a miner was determined to regain possession, and he went to the house, carrying a gun. The animal was in bed, but at the sight of the gun he climbed up the chimney and out into the brush. While the miner was in bed he was awakened by a scrambling in the chimney, and stealth Ily crossing the floor the cat again took the spare bed. A bullet soon ended its existence GREAT PLAUGH EB.-MIchel. at No. 591 Ma4a zine street. just above St. Andrew. is making a great clearing out sale, particularly in earnets. window shades and mattings.
