But there is a kind of bold, unblushing impu dent e, so far exceeding anything that v, c baton conceived, that it actually tokH vine's breath away to witness it. : this kind is Iao stabbing lioderi i" at night, and excitutuing atraiast killitiir men in the dark. One of For l.ey's "two papers, both daily," in I I , ag ever the result of the North t lioa election, says: "We know of M tOaat in the Republican tarty who nterUiius any feeling toward the BotUkan paSpla but one of kindness." Kiudnes-, lorsooth! O, yes. In the leWgWtn of the ancient bard, you're l-uiutuatelyclever; yea, killing kind." Very line talk; but actions speak l iuil rthau words.

Is it a "leeling of kindness" to the South ern people to send agents and report ers taaMMJ them who are commis sion d to stir up strife and bloodshed, . . : ; i to make false and misleading re rts of the same, for the purpose of It :!

Is it kindness to seize and divide their es MBong earjK-t-baggers and ne h William the Conqueror iiivH-l the lands in England among j ; i !l wersV No. But all these things have actually been done ex oepttftelaat in the case of the un- aatppy people of our American States .syiutli; and the last extreme act alflcaiiatl has been proposed, 'i hi- i- tlie red gonfalon and proclam- ttM of feudal triumph, conquest, revenge and booty. It is advocated I f : very considerable number of the " ir.i;:iinent politicians of the North , and the author of the above hypo-critic- .il senU'nce knows it. The Kad io.tls have pursued the conquered S 'itli in the very spirit of the hyena that in Eastern lands hangs upon the skirt- of battle, and breaks the bones of the helpless, wounded and dying, with its ravenous teeth. They have pursued the Southern eople with a demoniac fury an atrocious brutality ; yet we are reminded of their "kind lies." We have,with the bayonet fora physic spoon, swallowed much bitter medicine since April, lSoVi. We have s;-en buttons cut from ragged uniforms, new-papers suppressed, editors im-jr'-o:ied, laws nullified, regularly elected officials ejected, Governors snobbed, obnoxious colors prohibited, iuneral obsequies forbidden, and even balls and tournaments tabbooed. Vtc r 'n-ti. And haughty and proud as we are, wo liave borne and lived through these things; and we have seen grim veterans who pinked Federal soldiers all along the grand procession of battles from Bethel to Appomattox Court house, submit to be deprived of their buttons as mildly as sheep endure the shear- of the shepherd. And all this i- what is called a "feeling of kind ness." "Kindness!" Great God! J ! by reasons of brutal legislation, the I 'nited KUttes, despite its greatness, shall le hanged In chains by history alongside of England, Russia and Turkey, we may be permitted to thank God that the brave and un liappy Southern victims of these out rages will not share the load of dishonor which will rest heav ily upon the nation. The Radicals have iuqiosed terms upon us, more harsh than those which the Prussians and the Turks inflicted upon the Polos and the Greeks. Yet our merciless conqueror cherish an excruciating "kindness" a "kindness" which has no parallel save that which the wolf feels for the lamb. When the King ol Daliomey dies, six hundred of his favorite wives are slain, that their lord and master may have in Heaven a harem worthy of a great African monarch. If the sacrlflca of women and children had been neces sary to perpetuate Radical power and to appease their malignity, the Stars and Stripes would have grandly and proudly Hoated over a pyramid of bones and skulls as lofty as those which perpetuated the fame and the inlamy of Tamerlane. The "feeling of kindneas" about whieh the humane and loving Radi cals boast is modeled after the famous dispatch which the Russian field-marshal sent from Warsaw. He sat in the midst of a sacked city, reeking with the blood of thousands of slaughtered her., the flames ol burning houses illuminated the street, with their baleful glare, the shrieks of violated women rang out in awful chorus aud called to God tor vengeawie, and Cub- sacks, covered with blood, and laden with the spoils of costly residences, wrrci everywhere staggering and sing ing drunken songs in licentious orgies. In all this the Russian field-marshal beheld " restored peace," and so he reported to his Imperial mistress that " order reigns in Warsaw.' This is the same tort of treatment which the South hai received at the hands of the Radicals since they sur rendered their arms j and yet they say to us It is "kindness!" The fable tells of "kindness" equally as loving and profitable in tha monkey mother who had one only darling men key -lin x on which she doWfl With more than bipedal fondness. Her affection for it w-as such that she caressed it from morning till night and from night till morning. She hugged it so long and so hard that she finally squeezed it to death. If the Radicals consider tbeir conduct "kind," we hoje they will try their hand at punishment for a w hile, as any c hange will surely be for the better. It cannot be worse. is that modern Sodom, called Con gress, there have not for many years been enough righteousDemocratic Lots to preserve the Constitution or to save the country from impending ruin, ltat in the next House of Representa tives there will be very great gains for the Democracy. Several new members have already been elected in North Carolina. The .Nor! her? pajers and corresjKindents are show ing that we will make great gains in all the Northern States. We be lieve that no one claims a majority in the new Congress, but it is evident that the Democrats will number more than one hundred in the next House, being a gain of at least eighty members. This result will strike terror to the Radicals, while it will encourage the long-oppressed and disheartened Democracy. It will ar rest further rascality on the part ol the meagre majority. If the popular branch of Congress, however, be Democratic, by whatever large major ity, it will be utterly powerless to re peal those infamous laws and amend ments enacted by the Radical faction, or to do any other act being beneficial to the country, as the Executive and Senate would interiose." The great gains which the Democrats will secure in Congress, and the universal up heaval of public sentiment In every section of the Union, demonstrates the election of a Democratic Presi dent in 1872. The outlook is indeed encouraging. These great gains will have been achieved over the opposi tion of a President ol popular military reputation aud all the power and patronage of the Federal State Gov ernments. A party that gains strength under such great disadvan tages shows that it will, in the end, achieve its ancient popularity and invincibility. And these glorious re sults, this brilliant future which awaits the Democracy of the nation, have been achieved by a persistent opposition to all and every one of the infernal pro jects, tricks and contrivances of the Radical faction, beginning at the beginning, and ending at the ending of its career of twelve dismal years of triumph. It is to be further noted and recorded, that our bright prospect certain success, in deedis the legitimate fruit of a firm determination never to low er the Con stitutional standard a single inch; and utterly to repudiate all at temps to ig nore or keep out of tiexe the principles of the party, which are the same to day as they were when the destinies of the country passed into the hands of men who have well-nigh destroyed its morals and wholly disrupted its elements of prosperity as well as subjected its people not only to des potic rule and private oppression, but to the undisguised derision of man kind. With a President, taking his seat on the 4th of March, 1873, backtd by a majority in the popular branch of Congress (then beyond doubt), we can commence the great task of re storing the country to constitutional government, to be administered upon the principles of honesty and real economy. The Senate, as has been long ago demonstrated, will be power less to thwart the will of the eople. Yesterday our telegraphic head ing mentioned that France claimed a victory, and omitted the fact that the Prussians also claimed it. Some of our citizens are on one side, and some on the other, and there is no third side on which we can please all, as it is the bounden duty of all editors who cater for that very forbearing individ ual, the public, to do. This puts us very much in a quandary. The French side may not lie strong enough in this country, and if we go to the Prussian side, will not the Germans say very fairly that we do it, not be cause our real sympathies are that way, but because we hope to find some advantage in making them think so? We confess we are decidedly in sym pathy with our cotemporary of the Columbus (Miss.) Index, which says: " This war between France and Prus sia worries us. We have been trying several weeks to get on one side or the other so as to give Bony and Billy a chance to know what they may ex pect in the event we do take part, but we can't. The condition is pretty much that of the man who was chased along a fence by two dogs, one on either side. He took the fence after a while to keep either one from feeling slighted. Perhaps the old lady's posi tion as to the standing of a neighbor woukl better convey our quandary: 'Sometimes she thought Mr. Jones was a tolerable harmless man, and then again she didn't know.' Some times it's France and now its Prussia, and 'then agin we don't know.' " The Bard of Atlanta, formerly Memphis secessionist and fire-eater extraordinary, lately Governor of Idaho and protege of Gen. Grant, and more lately third party organizer, is at this time endeavoring to entice off Democrats, and having got up a Con vention, shouts, "Now, on the iCth of this month, you Democrats come out of your position and join us on this middle ground to fight the common loe." The Bard says he is not for any third party of course not. The Rome Commercial, however, under stands the game of this prince of seal la wags, and says: "We hope that not a single Democrat will attend the hybrid hermaphrodite meeting on the ICth of this month. The Demo cratic star is in the ascendancy! Let no man stay Its rising by compromi sing the party or giving it to entang ling alliances. Let every true man denounce their treachery and pass their invitation with scorn. There is no safety outside the Democratic ranks and he who leaves them tor any purpose whatever is in great and mrqjrifnt; CUUtgOr," We call attention to the fact that Mr. John Robinson has generously tendered to the Masonic Temple and the Church Home, jointly, the pro coeds of one of his superb entertain ments to lie given to-day. He will have the hearty thanks and the good will of this community for the future. His circus Is not excelled on the con tinent, and he Is himself the prince of good fellows. We hope the canvas will be crowded this evening. When the fact is remembered that Mr. Rob inson Is fleeced by a tax of $200 a day for the "privilege" of giving an Inno cent pleasure to our people, which, instead oi being repressed, should be encouraged, his generosity will be more fully seen, and we hope the cheeks ol some public functionaries will take on a tinge of shame at the enormous "privilege tax" Imposition. It is a crime against the people to tax down health and happiness giving amusement-. Let the authorities de cently! rem itjjoue day's $200 penalty. The time of the exhibition will be two o'clock p.m., and not eleven, as has been published. BY MAIL. A Toledo, Ohio, woman has made $20,000 in the lumber business. Baltimore is said to have a " large aud respectablecolored Democratic or ganization." Eastern Episcopalians have recently raised $20,000 to build a church in Salt Lake City. About $10,000 have been raised to ward the Stonewall Jackson monu ment fund. The Knoxville Chronicle suggests Thursday, September :K), as the time for the Radical State Convention. Wheat in Jackson county, Ala., is selling at one dollar per bushel.,, The crop of corn Is the lest for itoany years. Over thirty publishers, and $0,000, 000 capital are employed in the pub lishing of Sunday-school literature in this country. The Saturday Review says that Brigliam Young is reported to be so rich that it wonders he has not been admitted to a place in "Lothair." The cry of "mad dog," and the sight of the animal immediately behind her on the street, caused a Philadelphia lady to fall dead from fright recently. An American, now traveling in Europe, reports that Sweden is the only country he has visited where the sleeping apartments are lighted with gas. A correspondent writing from Ala bama to the New York Kxprexs says: "Alabama, 1 am assured by good Re publican authority, will give 0000 Democratic majority in November." In DeKalb county, Ala, last week, Garnett Harris and Marion Lowry, brothers-in-law, were out hunting, when Lowry shot Harris by mistake for a deer, and killed him. Joe Mooney, a horse trainer well known about Alontgomery, Alabama, was shot and perhaps fatally wound ed by a woman, with whom he had been on intimate terms, at Manches ter, New Hampshire, a few days ago. The Belma (Ala.) Tune and Met seuijer of tha 13th inst. says: "We learn that the negro man who out raged and then murdered a white girl, Miss Burns, in Sugar Valley, on the Selma, Rome and Dalton railroad, which was mentioned in the '. a few days since, was caught on Wed nesday nightby a party of men, and taken to somewhere in the vicinity of the sceue of the outrage and hung to a tree, where his body was found next morning." The work of taking the census is tolerably near completion. Tbe !Su perintendent states that by next Mon- lay He will have the total population of Maine, Delaware, Connecticut and Hhoa? island; by the 1st ol .Septem ber the Northern District of New York, Maryland and Ohio; by the i-itnoi beptemoer all the .states and Territories, except Texas anil Oregon and a portion of Western Michigan, which will not be completed by the 1st of Ootober. He will be able to give the complete population ot the coun try by the 10th ol October. He thinks that by the 1st of September he will be able to give the population of all the large cities of the country, except San Francisco, and this latter by the lutn oi September. J lie total popula tion of the country he estimates at 4U,.30W,O00. A "fallen woman" of Leavenworth, Kansas, has lately challenged the ikh Pie of that citv to assist in L'ivino; a helping hand to those of her class w ho wish to reform. She says that "if the citizens will assist in raising the sum of $20,000, as an endowment fund for a house of reform lor fallen women, she win give f.iooy of the amount, the money to be paid as soon as the clti- - its shall have subscribed one-half the required amount and appointed trustees to receive the same." She adds that no one knows better than herself the amount of misery and crime such an institution would pre vent. Such a proposition from such a quarter has naturally created much surprise, but it will be more surpris ing it the people shall fail to accept the challenge. The B y Monument at Berlin. In the King's square at lierlin is a huge monument upon which men are seen working daily with great dili gence. But such is its magnitude that, with all possible industry, it cannot be finished in leas than three or four years. It is to commemorate Prussian victories. Upon a great granite base there are bronze reliefs representing campaign incidents of the wars of W and '00. j?rom the base rises M granite pillars, forming a sort of arched and open chamber, and from the midst of this rises a mighty sandstone column covered to about a third of its hight with fresco paint ings, which commemorate incidents illustrative of the spirit of sacrifice which animated the nation during those wars. Trophies are introduced in the shape of twenty Danish and forty Austrian cannon (brass) which are festooned with bronze laurel wreaths. It is intended to crown the central pillar with a "Goddess of Vic tory," holding a wreath in one hand and a flag in the other. The figure, which has been modeled by Drake, is to be cast in gun metal. The monu ment will be 200 feet high, and the summit will be reached by a spiral staircase in the interior. The whole was designed by Strack. Before this monument Is finished, Prussia will probably have to chronicle the great est of all her victories, or else such a defeat as will make such a monument sutierfluous for the present generation. The French and Prussian Leaders. Foreign Dynasties. It will hardly be a matter of won der if European armies learn the same truth which was so clearly shown In our late war, that young men are the best Generals. The Crown Prince of Prussia, who has the chief glory of the defeat of the French army, is not yet thirty-nine years old, and before he was thirty-five he had made himself a great name at Sadowa. Prince Fred erick Charles, the King's ".nephew, who commands the Prussian right, and is esteemed the ablest of all King William's Generals, is forty-two years old. Most ttf the fighting at Sadowa was done by his army. The remain der of tbe Prussian commanders are geueralhr well advanced in years, Von .rllfitenfcid and Von Stenmetz. (lie latter of whom won the victory at Siarbrufken, having each marched into Paris with the victorious allies in 1816. The French have not a young man In a prominent position, if we except Trochu, recently made Major- General of the army. The Army and A'ary Journal two weeks ago pre dicted that he would win the laurels of the war, and he now has an oppor tunity to show his ability in releasing the French army from its position. Nearly all the French leaders are old men, When Napoleon objected to Prince Leopold of llohenxoliern, as a candi date for the throne of Spain, became he was a German, he virtually ig nored the feet that nearly every crowned head in Europe trace their descent from aliens and foreigners. For example: France has Louis Napoleon for her Emperor, the founder of whose dy nasty, General Bonaparte, was Corsi can by birth, and Italian by race. Victoria, (,'ueen of England, reigns by virtue of ber descent from a petty German prince, who had married the grand-daughter of James I, a Scotch man by birth, his mother having been Mary Stuart. In Spain, the Emperor Charles V. was a German by his father's side, His dynasty ceased in 1700, from want of a male heir, and a French Prince became King Of Spain, with the title of Philip V. Thus the hated Bour bon line, now nominally represented by the little boy in Paris who calls himself Alphonso XII,, was estab lished in Spain. King William of Prussia is a Swa bian by descent. The Emperor of Austria represents a dynasty which Was founded by Swiss soldier. t The King of Italy can show a de scent only from the Counts of Savoy, and thus is actually rather French than Italian. Christian LX., of Denmark, who is King by arrangement rather than popular election, belongs to a Ger man family long settled in Holstein. Sweden is governed by the grand son of a French lawyer, who having risen, under Napoleon L, to the rank of Field Marshal and Prince of Ponte Corvo, was elected Crown Prince of Sweden, and finally succeeded to the crown. The King of Greece has no Hellenic blood in his jeeins, being simply one of the sons of the King of Denmark, who is not himself a Dane. Belgium has for her monarch the son of Leopold, a ietty German Prince, by the daughter of a French Princess. He is grandson of Louis Phillippe, of France. Strictly co anting up, the only mon archies of Eijrope governed by native Princes, are Turkey, Portugal, Hol land, Wurtemberg, Saxony and Ba varia. All the rest of the European sovereigns are of decided alien origin. Even in Egypt, the Khedive, as Ismael Pasha is called, comes from a Greek family. Yet whatever their descent, the sovereigns, whether of foreign or native descent, becomes national in their respective localities when they reign. Louis Napoleon certainly thinks more of France than of Italy, whence his family came, and it has always been to the credit of Louis Bonaparte, his father, that he became a Dutchman in heart and soul as soon as he was made King of Holland. Because of this bis impe rial and imperious brother accused him of neglecting his interests, and the result was that, finding it was expected that he should govern Hol land only as a French satrap, the mere lieutenant of Napoleon, he took off his crown, laid down his sceptre, and retired into private life. There is no reason for thinking that if Spain had adopted Leopold of Hohenzollern he would have governed that country as a German Prince. His father-in-law of the Saxe-Coburg family, became so good a Portugese after his mar riage with Oueen Donna Maria de Gloria,that the lament in that country now is that he, not his son, Is not the present sovereign. Victor Hugo on the War and Wo man's Duty. Victor Hugo has addressed the ladies of Guernsey as follows: "La dies: Again some men have con demned a part of the human race. to death, a. d a desperate war has com ruenced. This is neither a war oi liberty or of duty, but a war of ca price. 1 wo peoples are about to de stroy each other for the pleasure of two princes, wniie thinkers are per fecting civilization, kings are perfect ing war. This will be a frightful one. Some chef (Tjeuvre are announced a gun that will kill twelve men; a cannon that will kill 1000. It is no longer the pure and free waters of the great Alps that are to now m torrents into the lthine, but human blood. Mothers, sisters, daughters, wives. shall weep. You are all about to go in mourning; some because of their own troubles; the rest because of the misfortunes ol the others. "Ladies what carnage! what a conflict must follow the meeting ol tnese unioriunate combatants! Allow me to address you a prayer. Since the ignorant forget that they are orotners, bo their sisters; come to their aid, and make lint. All the old linen of our houses which is of no use can save the lives of the wounded. It will be fine to have all the women of this island employed in this frater nal work; it will be a glorious ex ample and a great benefit. Men do evil; let you women supply the reme dy; and since on this earth there are bad angels, let you be the good ones. If you resolve to do so, and com mence, in a short time you will have a considerable quantity of lint. We shall then make two equal parts, and shall send one to France and the other to Prussia" EDUCATIONAL. WATCHES AND JEWELRY. Fine Gold Watches AND CHAINS. F. D. BARNUM & CO.

THIS Gin runs light on the team, makes a good sample, and will pick more lint from the same amount of seed cotton, and in less lime, than any other Gin. it doea not break the roll nor choke; is simple in Its con struction, and not liable to get out of order. The attention of planters la called to tbe ' Peeler Gin," made by Mr. Pratt expressly for the Peeler, Motna, and other varieties of long staple cotton. Mr. Pratt has made upward of 17,000 Gins tor India, Egypt, Mexico, Brazil and the Southern States, which have given general satisfaction. His Gin took the too premium and diploma at the Shelby County Fair at Memphis, and theMO premium at the Georgia State Fair, at Macon. It Is a good rule to try all things, and hoid fast to what has been approved and answers the purpose for which It Is made. This Is claimed for Pratt's Gin, and admitted by practical planters who have used It. Orders for Gins, from 40 to SO saws, and Gum Bands, at New York factory prices, promptly filled.
