MONDAY EVENING, FEB. 21, 1881.
Walt Whitman ou Carljle.
And se the ilame of the lamp, after long
waiting and ilickering, has gene out en
tirely. As a representative author, a literary
figure, no man else will bequeath te the
future mere significant hints of our stormy
era, its iieice paradoxes, its din, and its
struggling patuiitien period that Carlyle.
He belongs te our branch of the stock,
tee ; neither Latin nor Greek, but alto
gether Gothic. Rugged, mountainous,
volcanic, he was himself mere a French
revolution than any of his velumns.
In some respects,se far in the nineteenth
century, the best equipt, keenest mind,
even from the college point of view, of all
Britain; only he had an ailing body.
Dyspepsia is te be traced in every page,
and new and then tills the page. One may
include among the lessens of his life even
though that life stretched te amazing
length hew behind the tally of genius
and morals stands the stomach and gives a
sort of casting vote.
Twe conflicting antagonistic elements
seem te have contended in the man, some
times pulling him different ways, like wild
horses. He was a cautious, conservative
lscetchman, fully aware what a foetid gas
bag much of modern radicalism is ; but
then his great heart demanded reform,
demanded change aud always sympa
thetic, always human heart often terribly
at odds with his scornful brain.
Xe author ever put se much wailing
and despair into his books, sometimes pal
pable, el'tener latent. He reminds me of
that passage in Yeuuji's poems where as
death presses closer and closer for its prey
the soul rushes hither and thither, appeal
ing, shrieking, berating, te cscape the
general deem.
Of shortcoming;;, even positive blur
spots from an American point of view, he
had a serious share ; but this is no time
for specifying them. IVheu we think
hew great changes never go by jumps in
any department of our universe, but that
long preparation:;, processes, awakenings,
are indispensable. Carlyle was the most
serviceable democrat of the age.
Hew he splashes like a leviathan in the
seas of modern literature and politics !
Doubtless, respecting the latter, ene
needs first te iculize, from actual observa
tion, the squalor, vice and deggeduess in
giaincd in the bulk of j population of the
British ibiamis, with tht red tape, fatuity,
the iluukcyism everywhere te understand
the last meaning of his pages.
Accordingly, though he was no chartist
or radical, I considered Carlyle's by far
the most indignant comment or pretest
aneut the fruits of fucdalism in Great Brit
tain the increasing poverty and degra
dation of the homeless, landless 20,000,
000, while a few thousands, or rather a
few hundreds, possess the cntiru soil, the
money and fat beiths. Trade and ship
ping, and ciubs, and picstige, aud guns,
and a line, select class of gentry and aris
tocracy with every modem improvement,
cannot begin te salve or defend ,uch stu
pendous heggishncss.
Fer the last thice yens we in America
have had transmitted glimpses of Car
lyle's prostration aud bodily decay pic
tures of a thin-bodied, lonesome, wifele.-s,
childless, very old ma;;, lying en a sofa,
kept out of bed by indomitable will, but,
of late, never well enough te take the open
air. News of this sort was brought us
last fall by the Mck man's neighbor, Mon
cure Conway : and I have noted it from
time te time in biief descriptions in the
papers. A week age I read such an item
before I started out for my customary
stroll between 8 and 0 o'clock.
In the fine cold night, unusually clear
(February 5, '81), as iKvalkcd some open
grounds a Jjaccnt, the condition of Carlyle.
aud his approaching perhaps even then
actual death tilled me with thoughts,
eluding statement and curiously blending
with the scene. The planet Venus, an
hour high iu the West, with all her vol
ume and lustre lecevcrcd (she has been
shorn and languid for nearly a year),
including an additional sentiment I nevei
noticed before net merely voluptuous,
Papiiiau, steeping, fascinating, new
with calm, commanding, dazzling,
seriousness and hauteur the Mile
Venus new. Upward te the zenith,
Jupiter, Saturn and the moon past her
quarter, trailing in precession, with the
Pleiades following and the constellation
Taurus, and red Aldebaran. Net a cloud
iu heaven. Orien strode through the
southeast, was the glittering belt and a
trifle below hung the sun of night, Sinus.
Every star dilated, mere vitreous, nearer
than usual. Net as in some clear nights
when the larger stars entirely outshine
the rest. Every little star or cluster just
as distinctly visible and just as nigh.
Berenice's Hair showing every gem. and
new ones. Te the northeast and the north
the Sickle, the Geat and Kills, the Cas
siopeia, Caster and Pollux, and the two
Dippers.
While through the whole of this silent,
indescribable show, enclosing aud bathing
my whole, receptivity, ran the thought of
Carlyle dying. (Te seethe and spiritual
ize and, as far as may be, solve the mys
tery of death and genius, consider them
under the stars at midnight.) "
And new, that he has gene hence, can it
be that Themas Carlyle, seen te chemi
cally dissolve in ashes and by winds, re
mains au identity still ? Iinvays, perhaps,
eluding all the statements, lore aud specu
lation of ten thousand years eluding all
possible statemeirts te mortal sense does
he yet exist, a definite, vital being, a spirit,
an individual perhaps nw wafted in
space among these stellar systems which,
suggestive and limitless aJ they are,
merely edge mere limitless, far mero sug
gestive systems ?
I have no doubt of it. In silence, of a
line night, such questions are answered te
the foul, the best answers that can la
given. With me, tee, when depressed by
some specially sad event or te.rring prob
lem, I wait till I go out under the btars for
the last voiceless patisfactien.
Walt Whitman.
Painfully Personal
A Strange Scene in the Yirsliii.i Court of
Appeals.
Itt a recent application befeic the court
of appeals of Virginia for a rehearing in an
important insurance case, Mr. Jehn How Hew
ard, a prominent lawyer of Richmond,
stated that the president of the court
(Chief Justice It. U. L Mencurel) is men
tally se feeble and pecuniarily se interested
in the result of the suit "that his bare pre
sence ou the bench rendeisthc decision
infected and vitiated with illegality," and
he wished it understood that no such
decision would or could be regarded
or recognized by his "clients. This
has elicited a seveie rejoinder from a
unanimous court, Judge Mencure net sit
ting. It is shown by Mr. Heward's own
asbeciatc counsel and his client that Mr.
Heward insisted en Judge Mencure sitting
in the case, and that he expressed an un
willingness te proceed with the case un
less Judirc Moncure would sit. The court
pays a glowing tribute te the judge's de
votien te duty antl nr.paitial aumiitiFtra
tien of justice, and adds that " this is net
the first time Mr. Jehn Heward has
grossly offended against all propriety
in his demeanor te the court." Mr. How Hew
ard, in a note te the court, asked permis
sion te withdraw the whole of the argu
ment, with the privilege of making a
revision, and disclaiming any intention
that any construction should be placed
upon it "incompatible with that high per
sonal and professional respect for the
court and each of the judges which it has
ever been his pleasure te feel and
purpose te show." The court grant
ed Mr. Heward's request, adding, "Aud
in view of Mr. Heward's expressed
disclaimer and the withdrawal of the
whole of his offensive matter the
court forbears te take any further actieu."
Mr. Heward then addressed the court,
concluding with the remark "that the
true inquiry wa3 net who made the sug
gestion as te the incempetency of the
judge, or whether it should net have been
sooner made, but whether in December
last, when he rendered the decision, he
was net mentally incapable of understand
ing and deciding se great a litigation, and
whether he was net personally se situated
iu respect te it as te unfit him te act as a
judge inquiries which could net be es
caped by making a personal issue with
himself."
Seven Negroes Lynched.
Fire Hanged en the Frent or a Teimevtee
Court Heuse and Twe in the Weeds.
SprinjjSeld, Teun., dispatch te N. Y. World.
The country is in a fever-heat of excitr
menl ever the wholesale lynching which
occurred Friday night. The tragedy which
culminated in the lynching of the five
negrees implicated in the murder of Mr.
Laprade, makes a total of ten deaths
which Irave thus far resulted from the
fearful butchery. The crime for which
these negrees were lynched was the mur
der of a farmer named Laprade, who
lived alone near Sadlersville, Robinson
county, about a mile away from any neigh
bor. The report was current that he and
his two brothers had fallen heirs te $9,000
a few days before the murder. A party of
nine negrees went te his hoitse en
the night of September 8. 18S0.
Going iu the
one of them
and imitating
rear of his dwelling,
knocked at the deer,
the voice of Lnpradc's
brother, asked
ler admission. Laprade
opened the deer without thought of harm.
The nine negrees rushed in upon him.
knocked him down and then demanded all
his money. He gave them $3, saying that
was all he had. Throwing a rope around
his neck they dragged "him about his
ground, hanged him te the limb of a tree
repeatedly until he was almost unconscious
singed his body with torches and lacerated
and mutilated him with knives iu the en
deavor te compel him te admit that he
had concealed the money, but always with
the same result. With the tope he was
dragged about the yard, and nameless out
rages were cenrnritted upon his person.
Finally his legs were cut and hacked, and
the tendons tern from their places from
the knee down. Then his skull was
crushed with au axe, alter which the body
was hidden under eme bushes in a
neighborhood thicket. The body was
found two weeks afterwards.
Thodiscevcry of the murder caused in
tense excitement, and threats of lynching
were freely made against the murderers
as seen as they should be apprehended.
Suspicion fell upon Jim Higgins and, after
being imprisoned seme days, he made a
confession implicating his associates, who
were arrested. Higgins, who was au old
negre, was taken out and his feet burned
until, in his agony, he is said te have
given the details of the Lapr.ide murder.
The prisoners, including Higgins, were
brought te the Nashville jail. Higgins
had one of his ft-ct amputated and subse
quently died in jail.
September 13, two of the murdcrcis,
Bell and Jamicsen, were taken from the
Springfield jail and lynched. On the same
night a white man, named Ramsey, was
shot te dcith in his cell. He had been
confined for sheeting a Miss Helt, whom
he began te persecute en account of her
engagement with another person.
About 10:30 o'clock en the night of the
11th of the present month some twenty
five mounted men rode into town aud pre
ceeded te the jail. They intended te lynch
the piiseneis, but desisted en being in
formed that the trial would proceed, aud
if guilty the negrees would be hanged.
The trial of the prisoners had been in pre
gross all yesterday and in the evening it
had reached a termination in the charge
of Judge Sterk te the jury. The live
murderers, James Elder, Lech Mallery,
Luu Stcll, Rebert Thwcat aud another
whose name has net Ikcu ascertained,
were delivered te the custody of the
slier iff. and that official prepared te start
te the jail with them. Bill Murphy and
Antheny Duffy, who testified for the
state, were set at liberty and it is thought
that their release led te the terrible trag
edy. As the sheriff departed with his
prisoners he was met at the court-room
deer by an infuriated mob, who, present
ing pistols at his head, rushed upon him
ami took the trembling murderers from
him. Attorney General Bell tried te
collect a posse te resist the mob, but failed
and was compelled te make his exit
through a window.
The mob ordered all the lights ent, fired
a rcglar fusiladc of shots te intimidate any
weuld-bc rescuers, dragged the five cap
tives te the east deer of the certit house,
where ropes wtre awaiting them. The
ropes were suspended from the veranda
above. The five bodies in an instant were
swinging beneath the veranda. Jim Elder
Was the only one who struggled, and he
was quickly thrown down, bound hand
and feet and then hanged with the ethers.
The mob guarded the bodies until they
were sure that their work was completed
and life extinct. The leader therr gave the
order, " Disperse, my men, te your
homes," aud the executioners some 200
in number immediately dei-aiteu, going
en horseback in three different directions.
The crowd attending the trial were para
lyzed with terror at first, arrd then jumped
from the windows of the court room and
rushed off in every direction, uttering
cries of affright. There was no whisky ir
the crowd of lynchers, and they were un
der strict discipline. Xe outsiders were
allowed te approach until all the negrees
were pronounced dead, and their it was
announced that the man who would .cut
them down would de se at his peril.
This morning the two murderers, Duffy
and Murphy, who turned state's evidence,
were found hanging te a tree near the
scene of the murder. This makes seven
lives that were sacrificed by the lynchers
last night.
Fublie sentiment sustains th action of
the mob. Tire people feared air appeal
would be made and a new trial granted
the prisoners. The testimony was regard
ed as strong, proving the guilt of the mur
dercis, and theie was no fear that the jury
would net convict them.
The state Senate unanimously adopted
a resolution condemning the action
of the mob at Springfield in taking
prisoners from the custody of tee court
and patting them te death, and declaring
that mobs must be suppressed if it takes
the whole power of the state. The resolu
tion calls upon the governor te use all
means for the arrest aud punishment of
the perpetrators of this crirac.and premises
the active co-operation of the Legisla
ture.

Cleveland dispatch te the Herald.
Mr. Emery B. Sterrs, of Chicago, en
route te bis home from New Yerk, stepped
oft here for the purpose of wntrng Gen
eral Garfield a long letter en the situation
in tire East. He refused te submit te an
interview at first, but finally yielded after
considerable solicitation. lie said that he
went te New Yerk upon the invitation of
a number of prominent Republican poli
ticians for the purpose of using his inilu inilu
ence te harmonize the many elements iu
the party. He dined with Hamilton Fish
and the .Union League club, meeting with
all political shades and grades, and found
the only way te adjust matters iu a satis
factory way was te propose a compromise.
He d'n. net see Senater Conkling, but
talked with a number of his "right hand"
men. He also had an interview with
General Grant and learned from him what
terms Ir. Conkling would probably agree
te. Messrs. Grant and Cenkliug, se Sterrs
said, were closeted together for four hours
previous te the Litter's trip te Menter.
Said Mr. Sterrs, when ituhstiened con
cerning Mr. L. P. Morten's place irr the
cabinet : " Mr. Morten's business being
that of a banker, and his iirm being en
gaged in dealinir with governnrei.t securi
ties, would disqualify him under an act of
Congress from holding tire position of sec
retary of the treasury. The objections te
Mr. Morten's appointment de net proceed
iiem any distrust et ins ability nor dislike
te hint as a gentleman. Mr. Conkling' s
friends de net leek upon the appointment
of Mr. Morten as a probability, arrd arc
prepared te acquiesce most cordially in its
abandonment.''
' Hew about Themas L. James for post
master general :"'
" Mr. James is very popular and should
remain where he is. The leading nien of
the state would like a larger place than
the posteflicc department for New Yerk.''
' What would best suit all interests in
Xew Yerk and harmonize all elements."
" Everybody cannot be suited, but I be
lieve the appointment of Charles O. Fel-
ger as secictary of the treasury would
give the largest amount of satisfaction te
the larger proportion of the parly. The
objection i.s that he ought net te be with
drawn from the bench of the court of ap
peals, of which he is new chief justice. I
think the I'r iends of Mr. Conkling would,
in the nuiin, be satisfied with the selection
of Mr. Felger, who has a geed deal of po
litical sagacity, is a most skillful debater,
and a man of most remarkable independ
ence of thought and personal popularity.
I think that the appointment of a secre
tary of the ticasury whose financial views
were at all uncertain or hazy, from any
portion of the West, would excite dis
trust throughout the East and Middle
state, which would work a great deal of
injury."
In a private conversation Mr. Sterrs said
that Judge Felger had been telegraphed
by General Gurlield te visit him aud that
the judge would come West immediately.
Mr. Sterrs gave the gentleman with wheiu
he conversed te understand that all dis
agreements had becu settled in New Yerk
and that General Grant is te be credited"
with the submission of Conkling.
