Among the press of the north there have been a few journals which.if they failed to defend the south, certainly did not stoop to defame her. Among these we may count Frank Lea ' Ke' Illustrated Xcwgpaper. We do not recollect of any unreasonable and bitter denunciation of the southern people finding publication through the columns of that journal, and hence we listen with patient and courteous attention when it speaks of our faults in the language of friendly sincerity. In the present week's issue of that paper there is a well considered editorial which en deavors to prove that from the beginning of the federation the south has suffered from the want of practical tact in her leaders of sentiment and her framers of public opinion. While conceding the ability of many of these men whom the people have followed, they are charged in the alone unknown streets, by-wavs, alleys, done under medical advice, and a little I over and down steep hills, up winding quinine is better than a great deal of stairways obstructed in such a way whisky.

Every man in Memphis should consider himself a Boldier enrolled for service in the garri son resisting the attacks of that enemy. main of lacking that practical turn of xue gravity of the situation should im mind which prefers a result to an Idea. We fear that this accusation is sustained by the history of political parties in this section. Kbr is the discovery a new one. The thinking men of the south arrived at this conclusion even before the Confederate armies disbanded their forces, and had it not been for the curse of reconstruction and its resulting hordes of scoundrel carpetbaggers, there is uot a southern State of the old Confederacy that would not have re quired the fossil party-leaders of the old theorizing school to take a back seat. But the reconstruction laws, and the tribute which they forced the southern people to pay to the polit--ieal demonism of carpetbag rule, drove the southern people almost into the ; madness of another rebellion. Com ptired to the imported and impecunious olllee-seeker of the carpetbag trib?, the eld party leaders were bright and shin lag angels of light; for, though they may have fatally erred in sacrificing a material good for an impractical theory, tbey certainly never lived by systematic robbery of the public treasury, and many of them in their private lives were stainless and honorable. Most cordially do we agree with our cotem porary that the vast field of productive energy open to the south, and by which she is to recover her lost prestige among the members of thia.Union, is far apart from the baneful influence and operation of politics. We have long since placed ourselves on companions had a ciavicai fracture. Cornell university is one of the leading institutions of learning of the Union,and it is a matter of astonishment that such an "infernal machine" as this of hazing should be tolerated by the fac ulty of the university, the members of which could hardly have failed to know of its existence. The pres ence of such an institution about the college bespeaks little for the morale of its students. These young rascals who were indulging in the sport of torturing a fellow-being to death, are not a whit better than the kuklux who indulged a similar passion in Kentucky. We trust that the grand jury of the oouuty in which Ithaca is situated, will apply a corrective by finding true bills of indictment for murder, against the whole party who assisted in killing young Iggitt, .

If men do not rise to the dignity of a blameless life under circumstances like those now surround' ing us in Memphis, when may they be expected to do so? A reckless indiffer ence has by no means characterized our people. Indeed, weJhava.seen little or no departure from the line of duty even in this question of temperance, but the intoxicating cup has ever had peculiar fascination for the man bowed down with sorrow, and as we have, alas: a a great many such, to them we appeal to resist me tempting angei oi mVTflB BATtPnttTt S. M the Circe cup. Let our friends I liiIilUii UtLUlVSAU S UUii keep sober. A sober man is a better and stronger man than one who drinks. No man need be told that he can, when sober, attend to his particular avocation with more success than when under the influence of liquor. If that particular avocation is for the time being suspend ed, other duties certainly demanding as uuimpeded exercise of his faculties, have devolved upon him. Our daily familiarity with death should not make us callous of the position we occupy. Not only does every man 'carry his life in his hand, but the very life of the city is at stake.
