The Henr'hand Home give the follow-
inif recipe for making a mineral manure
that is especially adapted to potatoes:
Take one cask of lime and slack it with
water, aud ihen stir in it one bushel of
fine salt, and then mix in loam, or ashes
enough that it will not become mortar: it
will make about five barrels. Pnt halt a
pint In a hill at planting. All manures
containing potash are particularly suits
ble lor the potato. Ashes contain more
than any other natural fertiliser, and
should be freely used and carefully saved.
A bill is now before Congress chartering
a mail steamship company between New
Orleans aud Vera Cruz and South Ameri
can ports. It is sll the more likely to
pass that tbe Republic of Mexico proposes
lo aid It by a subvention from the Na
tional treasury. The oonimnroial p'iblic
of New ir.eaiis are clamorous for this en
terprise, as t.bey are desirous of sharing iu
the ?"." of Mexican foreign com
merce, the larger proportion of which now
goes to Great Britain.
A negro juror recently summoned to
attend court by a deputy sheriff, ran

tuk uie to murt, I neber stole anytin in
my life. Fo' God's sake sen' for de white
folks to save me," It being explained to
bim that he was required, not as a crimi
nal, but lo act in certaiu mooted cases of
life and property then depending, he was
with sore difficulty prevailed upon to put
in an appearance.
They have an astronomical prophet at
tbe North, who has lmeti foretelling a sc

nature throughout our entire land, par
ticularly tue Northern regains, to com
mence on the dth of April, or thereabouts,
and to go on, increasing in violence, till
ii. s oumea again, Kartb, sea and sky,
be declare, are full of ominous porteuts,
presaging dire calsaiit v. The seasons are
to become soiutarblendedthaf one cannot
be told from tbe others, and confusion is
to become worse confounded in every de
partment ol the material world.
The New Orleans Time says: Perhaps
the meat contemptible of all Charles Sum
ner's many and repealed man i testations
of littleness, was bis application to Sena
tor Rosa, tbe occupant of Jefferson Davis'
old seat in lbs senate chamber, lo sur
render it to the negro Revels. Such s
wanton insult, so like vomiting on the
grave of a dead grandmother, could never
have been conceived by other than a das
tard heart and is ward spleen. Mr. Ross
did right when he resented with sn im
precation which would have made any
man's ear tingle with shame except
'harlesr?u inner.
Korney, oi the Washington Chroniele,
who is justly ostracised from all decern so
ciety on account of his Jamison letter, in
a recent number ol that one of tbe Iwo
papers to which be particularly devotes
himself, and in which hedegrsdes journ
alism by a shameless trucculency and sub
serviency, says: " It is proper that Jeff.
Davis and Robert E. Lee, who devoted
the education bestowed u i u tbem by the
bounty of tbe Government to efforts for
establishing a slave empire, should be
succeeded iu the Military Academy by s
number of the raoe wfcch they despise
and trampled upon." wiike master, like
man. Forney, who is Grant's creature,
but speaks the sentiments of that tool of
tbe bond-holders. He feels that so long
as Davis and Lee live, the people will in
dulge in contrasts unfavorable to his
vanity, aud tbe position in which he has
fssen Isjlstered by loval leagues. Grand
Dies of tbe Republic, by overruling
constitution of hia nouutrv, aud by
trampling upon the liberties of the peo
ple. Even in the form given to tbe
proposition for amnesty by (Jeneral
Butier, it is questionable whether so
much lenity is advancing in popu
larity at Washington. As some two
hundred and fifty thousand persons
are to be relieved by it from the opera
tion of the XlVth Ameudmeut, it is
supposed to be a dangerous if not
unhealthy measure for the Radical
party-
A new aid to " shanks' mare,"
called the "pedespeed," has been in
vented away off in Dubuque, which
the TiTnes thus indignantly describes:
" The) diabolical genius who invented
the velocipede has not yet been hung,
and the consequence of that mistaken
clemency is that others are boldly ad
ding to the sum of human misery by
similar inventions. The last device
of this kind is called a 'pedes peed,'
and consist" of two wheels, one of
which is attached to each foot by a
sort of stirrup
The whoels are fonr-
j teen or fifteen inches in diameter, and
the mode of locomotion is something-
like that on skates. The speed is
much less than that of the velocipede,
but the facilities for dismounting are
muchgreatur. Aa hia feet are fastened
to the wheel, the rider has merely tr
alight on his head, which he invaria
bly does.''
By the original theory and practice
of this, like that of other governments,
the chief executive officer was privi
leged to grant all amnesties and par
dons, and dispense clemency and
mercy toward offenders. But now the
Kxeeutive is no longer supreme in this
respect, and only the Legislative de
partment truly reigns. Hence the
most infamous of all the foes of the
South is selected to introduce what is
called a general amnesty bill into
Congress. Hence it is not to be a free
and unconditional amnesty even now,
and five years after a proclamation of
a cessation of hostilities. But the
clemency and mercy tendered is with
the delicacy of the hyena, made on
condition that its subjects shall con
fess their sins and pray for partem to
the courts ! The only lenity of which
Butler is capable is such as involves
the degradation of gentlemen who
will not be so untruthful as to desist
from calling its author " the beast."
A ' bi.i-. intended to show approx
imately the effect of the X Vth Amends
ment in increasing the vote in States
wherein negroes were not previously
voters is going the rounds, prepared
on the basis, of a vote equal to one
sixth tbe negro population. We have
found R so rail of errors as to think it
worth while to correct it as follows:

Thus (excepting Kentucky and
Maryland) an addition is made to the
votes of the ajve t wenty-one most pop
ulous States of only 41,23 v otes, which
will be but slightly felt in any, and in
some will lie imperceptible on the
elections. But, making the same cal
culation for the remaining States, we
shall have a different and most im
portant result affecting their future, as
shown in the following table:

Thus in these fifteen less populous
States we have bS7,;47 black voters,
against 41,128 in the twenty-one larger
ones. In other words, a complete
sweep aud control of the negro vote iu
some States, and almost no control in
others. The States least affected by
negro suffrage vote to inflict it on
those whose interests are to be jeop
arded. Our masters say that they do
all this from patriotism and philan
thropy. But we say that they do it
from the malice of mean passion, and
for revenge.' Thus are the sections of
the Union fraternizing for the future!
The strong oppress Uie weak and
gloat over their misfortunes. The
magnanimity of the lion is wanting,
but that of the cat species abounds.
A coRBJisPoNDE.fT of the Athens
(TeHn.) Post, whom the editor en
dorses as a member of the republican
party, and as a man of firmness and
character, says that he regards the
election of Sen bar and the Legislature
as having been so far fraudulent as to
have warranted Federal intervention
at the time, and that " such interven
tion would unquestionably have been
approved by a large majority of the
republican voters of this State." He
thinks that tin supporters of Senter
expect-d it, and that all would have
acquiesced in it. But he thinks, now
that new conditions have arisen, it is
too late and unnecessary. Being no
ofHce seeker, lie adds, what all repub
licans in the State, not office seekers,
also feel, as follows:
Congress having re fused or neglected
to take cognizance uf our violated laws,
permitting Senior to organize his Legis
lature, the Legislature to call a Conven
tion to amend the Constitution, said Con
vention having assembled aud framed a
Constitution so thoroughly in keeping
with the rapid progress of the age, tbe
same having been recently submitted to
and approved by a respectable majority
of the people, would the Republicans not
do well to take tbe new Constitution as a
compromise, as a final settlement of our
great political dissensions, and engage iu
new issues? Would snob a course not be
good policy? Would Congressional inter
ference at this late day not re-open
wounds that are but closed ' Would
a military government now strengthen
the Republican parly? Would it enhance
tbe value of our bonds, lessen our State
debt, improve our commerce, increase
immigration, encourage amity or other
wise add to the material prosperity of our
Stale or to the happiness or interests of
our people? I bold that tbe interests oi
tbe entire communitv are paramount to
tbe wishes of a few individuals, the grat
ification of whose prejudioea or tbe se
curing of brief official positions for them
selves or friends would confer no lasting
beneiit lo any one.'' -a
'Iid. Amnesty of President Johnson
not being recognizved as of any im
portance or efficacy, Mr. Greeley now
urges the glory of utiiversal amnesty
on the present administration. It
would seem to be quite time that mat
ter was settled , if ever. If five years
after the close of the war, and when
for all that lime no organized or armed
resistance to tbe national authorities
has been known from Maine to Cali
fornia, nor from the Lakes to the
Gulf, it is not time for amnesty, we
should say fifty years hence would not
be any more a suitable time for this
act of magnanimity, so-called, toward
eleven States and twelve millions of
people. The family of States has had
a little quarrel, aud th8tronger side
has secured the union of force. Greeley,
like a philosopher aud a statesman,
sees some goou in a union oi near?,
and asks amnesty to that end. He
exclaims " let us have peace!" Con
gress will see to it that the States shall
have a republican government, aud
execute its laws with a standing array
in all the States. Why, then, should
we not have peace'.' Will not the
government heed the urgent entreaty
which follows:
Kor what has been auhjeved, as also for
its fruita uol yet realize, let universal
thanksirivioga ascend toOod. The Mil
NMiium is not here, and not .kely soon to
be. Injustice, oppression aud tyranny
fraud, proliiiry, and mlserv at ill dark
en the sarth. Sensuality and iniquity
abound. Corruption and prodigality pro
fane the high places of the land. Abject
poverty and brutal ignorance are still the
lot of millions, even in ibis boasted land
of freedom and opportunity. Yet it is
very much to have established firmly the
principle that the law is no good man's
enemy, but the friend of every virtuous
effort. If the State Is yet unable to lift
all men up, it no longer holds any dowu.
Tbe chili! born to-morrow in tbe most
squalid hovel may yet become President
of the Cnited States.
And now is the time to seal our great
triumph by enacting and proclaiming
Csnrvaaaax Amnksty. our civil war
virtually closed with Lee's surrender live
years ago. No armed force has marched
or tired a shot under the flag of the
Southern Confederacy sine May, 1885.
There are bad men w)u still commit out
rages: there ia not, and for years has nut
been, any open, embodied resistance to
tbe Federal authority and laws It is
high time that every one were officially
assured that no penalty still impends
over him for anything done or threatened
in the interest and under the liag of the
rebellion.
We ought for our own sake to identify
universal amnesty and impartial suffrage.
We ought to make one the oomnleuieutof
tbe other, so thst they should henceforth
have a ooiumuti vitality, a uommon lon
gevity. We ought to be able to say,
"The edifice is crowned; the work is
complete; henceforth woe to him who
recklessly disturb and imperils it?"
In his Washington eulogy of Gen
eral Thomas, Horace Maynard said
of the people of Tennessee:
His memory is very precious to the peo
ple of that Slate. (Jo where you wiii,you
will not find a cabin where his name is
not known and his memory revered.
They struck in hia honor a medal of gold,
and cherish it with something of the feel
ings which gather round visible objects
connected with our religious worship'.
It is not our business or wish to dis
parage the memory of General Thom
as. But we cannot in Tennessee af
firm the truth of this extravagant
statement, and we ought not-to falsify
history and the facts. And ti men will
overpraise, they must expect the
counterpart to follow In the interest of
truth itself. General Thomas it seems
was in the outset of the war an al
truist for southern rights, even going
so far as to draw forth from General
Lee the advice to moderate his tone.
The Bichmond Examiner has stated
that he resigned his commission as a
United States officer and went to
Richmond to offer his services to the
Confederacy. But he afterward
changed his mind and went hacks to
the north to return aa a foe, the resig
nation of Johnston and Lee having
made him in the meanwhile a full
colonel of cavalry. Of what followed
the New Orleans Picayune speaks
carefully, temperately aud truthfully,
as follows :
His career in the I'nion army afforded
full evidence of the old Euglish saying,
' that one rouegade is worse than ten
Turks," as the world has ever known.
Apparently he took particular delight in
destroying Southern property, outraging
tbe rights and feelings of Southerners,
and inflicting upon them the full meas
ure of tbe horrors and inconveniences of
war. Never during the contest, or since
it closed, did be fail to misrepresent, or
to slander the adhereu's of the Confed
eracy, particularly those in Kentucky
aud Tennessee, where most of his servi
ces were performed. Stained, however, as
he was by the infamy of renegadlsiu, he
was not without conspicuous qualities.
He was a braye.l fearless soldier, and a
good disciplinarian, aud won the admira
tion and atrectiou of Ins troops. Stem
as his perverted nature was, he was not
the cold butcher that Grant, Sherman and
Sheridan showed themselves to lie. He
uever descended to the level of Butler,
Dow and some other , Federal officers, by
stealing private property from ;he inhab
itants of the country which he occupied,
for his own use. He never disgraced
himself by bullying defenseless men, or
insulting refined and delicate women.
That is about all whi'h we think even the
most liberal Southern journal can say in
his behalf, and we can say it cheerfully as
his riuht fill due. 4
To Virginians, the shameful defection
to Thomas to the Southern causer was pe
culiarly humiliating, as his carees i Mex
ico hail enlisted tbe pride aud aUr ation
of that noble aud generous people. His
name, Jolued wiih that of Winiield t,
whom he resembled nut a little in pe.
soual appearance, will go down to poster
ity covered with thoir reprobation. He
was alonu. amomr his family, in this
treachery to his native land. for his brother
was an officer in the Confederate army;
and a spirited and patriotic sister, one of
those Virginia matrons wbo stood out
during the desolation ol their proud old
Commonwealth by tbe Federal armies,
in the resplendent majesty of devotion
and self-sacritiue, is resrted to have an
swered an application lor the sword which
the State had presented to her recreant
brother.bv saving that he should uot have
it, as Virginia had presented it to a son of
whom she was iheu proud, uut thai the
hand of a traitor should never grasp ils
hilt. But the man has gone to his last ac
count, haviiifi by his life offenses sacri
ficed all claim to a niche in the same com
memorative temple of Lee aud Stonewall
Jackson, and won only tbe very doubltul
compliment of sharing such honors with
tbe ruthless desolalsrs of tyrauical op
pressors of his native soil, ami of bis near
est kindred. Few suould euvy him such
a fate.
Thk "ceremonies," as they are
called, incident to the death of Gen
Thomas are still continued at various
places. A grand demonstration came
off in Washington on the fith, and
Seheuck, Logan, Belknap, Colfax,
Fairchild, Cox, Thayer and Maynard
made sieeches. The Baltimore (Ga
zette correspondent seesin them, what
is rather common in such cases, more
selfish self-laudation than indications
of depression and grief resulting from
this national bereavement. Thus he
says:
There are two things remarkable in these
"observances. ihe first is that those
who are the suhject of them have not al
waya been rewarded, before their deaths,
iu a way cot omens urate with their deserts,
as portrayed in tbe eulogies tout inorton
(Mem. Sheridan was made Lientouant
Ueueral in preference to his superior
officer) and thesecond is that the orators
on such occasions always contrive to
"ring in" two words for themselves.
where they utter one for the object of
l heir eulogy. I tins (eneral Shermans
"eulogy '' oousista chieliy in praising the
alttcruu with which Ins lightning
orders" wereeeouted by his subordinate,
although admitting their " position" in
tbe'mighty contest might have been
different if the mere etiquette of mnit
had been observed by the commanding
General. What particularly strikes Gen
eral Logan as showing tbe calmness of the
deceased is the "uooluess" with which
he received his report of the scaling i with
a few men) the heights of a mountain,
almost perpendicular on all sides. Bel
knap, Cox and divers other distinguished,
as well as other undistinguished "Gen
erals" remember very distinctly his
"commanding look, his "calm iirow,"
his "unsbashed front," when sternly tell
ing them "lo go," aud "take," or "occu
py" such and such positions, with one
half, or at sometimes with oue-fourth of
the opposing forces, which were almost
impregnably fortiiied 1''
Such, leaving out verbiage, is the sub
stance or tbe recent eulogies upon the
laie Ueueral Thomas by his "comrades
inarms." It was up-hill work to those
!-i ..!.. who have no chauae at all to lie
about their own desperate military ex
ploits. An amusing instance, is allorded
in the eloquent " remarks" of Vice-President
Colfax st the oeremouies " at tbe
hall of the G. A. It. last night. Mr. Col
fax is no soldier never smelt gunpowder
in any way whatever; lint If he can't
fight, he can "smile," "remember," "con
verse," "shake hands," and bring out a
broad .mile from the demurest subject.
If he had uot led armies to desperate con
flicts, he contended he had read of con
iict when Speaker of the House; and
'after the war was over had actually shaken
hands wllb tbe deceased on a very mem
orable occasion. But the very words of
the heir expectant bad better be given
verb a ton I
"1 know but very little of General
Thomas personally, but 1 remember the
scenes alluded to by tbe speaker who has
pre "died me. remember when Geueral
Thomas came to the Hall of the House of
Sepresentalives and was so enthusiastically
greeted, and as presiding ojticer, on motion
of (General fichenck, I was called on to in
troduce Us to that body. I did so, and
when General Thomas advanced he was
greeted with tumultuous applause, and
when that brave General gavu ine hia
band it shook like an aspen leaf."
What follows, taken from the same
speech, is more practical, as it smacks of
"business." The Vice President, having
an eye to the sale of Uiis book," dove
tailed a puff, iu his "reniKiscences" of tbe
deceased, highly oreditape to bis dexteri
ty, st the same time not 1, Mug sight of the
necessity at showing that he was "a livtf
man" to all thst pertained to "the threat
e v ents of the war. " Here it la :
"I remember, while return ins; from Cali
fornia, it was my privilege to cross the
Sierra Nevada in company with General
Thomas. Passing from the West to the
Bast, I (on versed with him upon some of
the great events of the war. But he would
never let me spesk of himself or any of
the battles in which he was prominently
engaged. I ssked him if, at any time, be
had ever doubted the success of the Union
forces. He answered: 'No, sir, never. I
believed we were right, and it we were
right God would be on our side; thst He
would bless our efforts and give as the
