meeting to heng McOsehan Here B
another "outrage" for the inveetraatrOB
of the ku-klux committee. McOeehan,
ao doubt, deserved hanging, but he wee
toquiited by a jury of hie countrymen,
end the mob that drore him from his cas
tle should be punished. Had auob a lsw
aee meeting been held In the south, mar
tial law wouid have been declared, and
innocent dtlxn would have been
dragged over the country. Had eome
carpet-bagger been driven from hia home
on account of hia general robbery
acd plundering of the people, the whole

We condemn violence and lawlessness In
the South, and It should be rebuked when
It develops itself in the North. The ac

i .H ir, pivll war. anarohv. and all the at
tendant horrors of intestine commotion
each as we see Mexico and other southern
countries, republics only In name, ook
i nuallv convulsed with. Whatever cause
may exist for riot and revolution In eoun
t lea where the principle of sovereignty
is less universal than in this, violence
never can be the rightful remedy here
where the lawn, throng b the people's rep
resentatives, are of the people's own mak
tug, and those who execute them are of
the people's own choosing. The only
1 -gal meant of getting rid of any statute
obnoxious to s minority Is to agitate Itn
rapes! until the justice of a change
generally recognised, and those who con
stitute the asinorlty, by accession to their
numbers, beooanee majority. Until this
change is effected the few must submit to
t ie decision of the many, or republican
government cannot exist. It would
nothing but s rope of aand,which any dis
satisfied person might at any moment pull
to pieces. The government of the United
Slates is not a government of any partic
ular section of the Union ; it is a govern
inent established, under oonatitolicna
u'jarar,teea of the tehot-' people; and as
long a it subserve the good of the greet
est number, It fulfills the end for which it
wss crested. Thoee who live under the
protection of its laws have either to obey
them or leave the country for one where
they can have a larger license. If they
undertake to resist the government In the
lawful exercise of the authority delegated
to it, they deserve to be considered, and
should receive the punishment of traitors
to constitutional liberty. Such have been
the vie we we have expressed In regard to
a : tbe unconstitutional infamies of the
Radicals Tbe same views apply to the ad
ministration of State governments. The
people of Ohio can no longer twddle abou

themselves into a mob, and driven from

southern i.ul.li. determine- u buy do bunk of
houtlieri authorship, which bears the uapilnl
ot a northern publisher.
It is simply absurd to ta!k about south
em authors volnctsrily going north to
have their books published and sold. It
involves an expense, to aay nothing of
other considerations, which they would
giad'y get rid of. They are drtren north
by southern book-sellers, southern mer
chants and southern readers.
It la no doubt true, aa asserted in the
above extract, that as good printing
ard binding can be dene in the South as
at tbe North. Here, in Memphis, work
can be turned cut equal to the best north
ern publlshirg ncusee, but after the bk
is printed and bound, wbc will come here
to buy t: The sanas nock which they
will eagerly hunt for In New York, Phil
adelphia or Boston, would moulder on the
shelves of Memphis beioro an Inquiry
would ever be made for it from Vir
ginia, Nor are the southern
people lees to biamo. In nine
cases out of ten they form their estimate
ot a book from northern criticisms
Whstcver is pufitd there la almost certain
to sell here. It la the gulnea'a stamp
which gives it Its currency. They do net
know that criticism at tbe north is a trade
that those engaged in it very aeldom
read more than the prelsoe to the book
they undertake to criticise, and that the
amount of eulogy bestowed upon a par
ticular work la always graduated by the
amount ot tbe fee paid to the critic So
also the amount of censure la regulated
sometimes by the degree of anger the
eritic may ieel at not being employed to
puff, ard Mmetimes by the sum a rival
bouse will pay for abuse. A southern
book published at home is certain to be
entirely ignored by these Intelligent and
Impartial gentry. There ia no one to pay
them for either praiae or censure. The
book goea to the world unnoticed, and
southern readers, who era loudest in their
professions of s desire to emancipate the
South from its dependence on the North,
will refuse to buy it because It lacks the
stamp of northern approval. Ii ail this is
not fully understood by southern authors
at least It does not lake them long to
learn that omeh-.u their becks sell better
in the hands o: - rihsrn publishers, and,
like everybodv !- who baa anything to
dispose of, they taki theas to the best
market. Ten lines of ocmmsndstlon in
Harper' t Wetk'y, ctteily ignorant as it
is of genuine .literstnrf, and destitute of
true literary taste, will sell more copies
oi ary given work at '.hojSBntb tbsn half
a column each in par esM real merit.
Is it to be wondered st, tBn, that south
ern authors send or take their works
from borne to be published, when it Is
only in that way that they can be sold?
In tbe world of newspapers the same
e... exists; snd the worst of K to, that It
la fostered and kept alive by southern
readers, or rather fmrematert, tor auch
people never read, they skim throwgh
few pegea and gather enough to talk aboot
to the next person they meet whose bead
is as empty as their own. Ai every south
ern railroad at at ion this class msy be
heard eagerly irqulrlng of the newsboys
for Bonner's Ledger or Harrier's Wttk-y,
while southern publications are never

which impel southern authors to seek s

stsnds aloof from the press of tbe
country. It to tw generU, defying

The work of the expedition, however, to
not yet completed, the journey not yet
ended. The point, however, has been
reached from which a new departure W'U
be taken. Onward to still the cry, and
deeper atill into the wastes must the
lourney still be carried. Ths mission so
favorably commsneed, so energetically
persevered in, so courageously upheld,
must crown its erfrprtoe with success

world that tbe goal to won, and that the

The gas now furnished consumers In
this city thanks to naphtha is certainly
unobjectionable. The type-eettora say so
and their verdict to final. The excellence
of gas is not to be determined by the
quantity, but by the quality of light pro
duced by Its combustion. It to the light
snd not the quantity of gas that to wanted.
Therefore, it to wrong to sell gea by the
cubic foot. We now psy as much for
shoddy gaa as for broadcloth. It to all
taken by the yard, or rather by the cubic
foot. On the contrary, we abould have a
photometer that determines ths candle
nower lisht-civins capacity of gaa. He
who reads telegraphic dtopatchee by gas
light, as they come to tha Affbaju, written
with a stylus on manifold paper, soon
certains the photometric value of the gas.
C jsi gse has red rays, and a yellowish red
tinge; naphtha gas to colorless. It gives
a sou, white light, oi sn iubbubsubi
power greater than the red light produced
by the old process of coal gaa manufac
ture. Much aa has been aaau everywhere
of robberies practiced by gaa monopolists,
the evil will never be remedied until lawa
regulating these corporations define
standard of " oandle-pcwer " which tbe
gas must have. Meters enly tell of quan
tity ; photometers constitute the necessi
ties of cities buried at night in the yellow
glare of imperfect gas lights. The best
coal gaa is from twelve to fourteen candle-
power; naphtha gas has a candle-power
doubly greater. If two burners, one for
coal gs and the other of naphtha gas be
lighted aide by aide, the former will cast a
dark shadow on a. white wall. We have
aeen the experiment made. Worse than
all this, the meaner ths gas the lssa Its
specific gravity, and thus the greater the
rapidity with which it rushes through the
pipes, meters aud burners, and tbe more it
oosts. Rich gas, giving a.clear, soft, white
light, is heavier than coal gas. It past
slowly through the meter, and while
giving an infinitely better light, oosts ths
consumer lees. There to s saving of eye
sight as well as of money, and the law
making power should regulate, not ao
much the quantity as the quality of gas

Judge Blstchford rendered an interest-
lag snd important decision In the United
Steles circuit court of New York on Fri
day last, in tbe case of Peter Hamilton,
executor of the tost will and testament of
Duke W. Goodman, against the Mutual
life Insurance company ol New York.
The ault was brought to recover 60U0 on
s life insursnce policy issued to Mr. Good
man on March 24, 1850. The defense
claimed that tbe policy ceased to exist, on
account of the non-payment of tbe an
nual premium, on March 2, 162, and that
the.previous payments were forfeited to
the defendants. The plaintiffs, however,
O-'UCluded that the defendants, by with
drawing all of their agencies from Ala
bama, where Goodman resided In March,
prevented the payment by him
of his annual premluma on the pel'cy.
J thereby waived such payments,
11 of which became due alter the 10 .h ot
August, 1661; tbe acta of the defendants
hiving prevented the payments in Ala
bama, and the effect of the war being to
make auch payments in New York by
Oocduian unlawful. Ths Judge decided
that the obligation of the ecu pany was
not dissolved by tbe war, which necweee-
lly resulted In interrupting communica
tion with the South. The Judge
closed as follows: "I hsve carefully con
sidered all the views urged by the defend-
and am entirely satisfied that the plain

gun on AtkHneas anaint, dismissed tbe
