Tenn. ftlUIl'HIS APPEAL WKD.M.SWAT MOKM.G.MAY I,1877' CtLLIXV A HALT. L. J. Washington, the intelligent corre spondent of the Louisville Courier-Jour no!, has facilitiea for procuring' Information not accessible to tin; a-vooiateJ j ress. le is en ergetic and always reliable, in a special dis patch from Washington, dated May 1:1th, he says: There is no question oT the fact that Mr. Blaine is deeply irritated with the adminis tration, and will strike at it whenever he gets a arood chance. The ground of his onslaught will be the President's policy in Louisiana and South Carolina, and Mr. Blaine will lead the dissatisfied element. IJutler will play the same part in the house that Maine does in senate. The muttering of this storm have already had a marked effect upon the policy of the J'resident. This rebellion has had much to do in causing the postponement of the extraordinary session, and it has also led the President to abandon the idea with which he entered his office, of making non-partisan appointments in the south. I speak on un questionable authority in stating that the President has concluded to make his appoint- I ments, as a general if not invariable rule, from the party which supported his election. The effect of such a rule is to confine him to a very bad element in the south, and 1 think some of his appointees may fail of confirma tion by the senate. The jdea is, of course, to reconcile the Uadijal extremists to what has been done in Louisiana. This is nothing more than was expected and predicted by the ArPEAi.. The south ern policy of the President, about which we have heard so much gush, consibted in noth ing but permitting two sovereign States of this Union to inaugurate the governors elected by the people. This simple act of sworn consti tutional duty he performed, with the hope and view of dividing the southern Democracy, and , having discovered that the southern Democrats cannot b3 arrayed against their old friends and in support of an old enemy, the President will call a halt, and instead of further running his fraudulent administration on the Democratic theory, ho will be as ma lignant as ever toward the south. It is evi dent that Hayes intends to turn upon his own policy simply because it has failed to disor ganize the southern Democracy. This was the test of its merit. In adopting his south ern policy, he cared nothing for patriotism, duty, principle. It was to bt; carried out if it dissolved the southern Democratic party If it failed in this object, it was to be dis carded as a bad policy. The Democrats do - not UC3C'n Uleir iirni-:irinn, our.3t with p-uiin- ing gratitude, and agree henceforth to vote for the Itepublican ticket, and, as a matter of course, the President's southern policy is fadure, and must be abandoned. All that the fraudulent President has done his se lection of a repudiated Tennessee Democrat for postmaster-general his withdrawal of the troops, and the recognition of governors elected by the people, contrary to the policy of Republicanism were all political experi ments a bit of strategy which should be un done, as far as possible, if it foiled to weaken the Democratic party, and to re establish the lost power of Radicalism in the southern States. It will be seen from the alove ex tract that it contains sad news to the place- hunters in the Democratic party, who, like the antiquated maids, gnzed for a whole day upon a large army, and at night anxiously inquired what bad become of the ravishers. The bid which the President ordered his subtle tool, D. M. Key, to make by dispens ing patronage among renegades, failed to in duce Democrats to take service under a. fraud ulent Radical President, and now it is announced that the President will, for the future, make appoint ments only from among the men that sup ported him. This policy is more honest and commendable than that proposer! by Key, which was equivalent to saying, "If you southern Democrats will turn over to the Re publican party, we will pay you so much for your treachery." Having for twelve years de clared that the southern .Democrat were as sassins, murderers, rebels, disloyal to the government, and only wanting anjopportunity to destroy it and re-enslave the negro, Hayes sought to prove his declarations by showing J that he could bribe the south. '! he candi- i date of ofiicial thieves and rascals, he took it for granted the southern people, because un fortunate, were for sale. The failure of the experiment is a compliment to the southern Democracy. It shows that they are not a horde of hungry omce-seekers, willing to for give the whole catalogue of crimes committed by the Radical party because its twvws Pres ident has seen fit to make amends for a sin gle one among thousands. The south ern question is out of the way, but there are many other issues which sepa rate the southern Democrats and the Repub lican party as far as the poles, that are still living and will remain so long as the Repub lican party steals the hard earnings of the tax-payer and the Presidency from the people. powder was invented, and nations liad new facilities for killing one another. But it is a mistak'; to believe that the inven tion of gunpowder was an advance in civili zation, if our facilities for killing each other be the criterion, for statistics show that fewer lives have been lost Mnee tl.e invention of powder than by the primitive method of fighting. And now it fvnis as civilization advances even jowd-r will Lave to give way to a mightier force. A new agent has- ap-I-;ired which promL-es to be in superior to powder as the latter was to the hng or tha bow an 1 arrow. IIcll Gate, at New York, was bloarn up with iiitro-glyccrineand dyna mite, ucCompli-hing far more than could have Leen done by jwdcr. The latest use to which this new agent has been put is in the construction of a torpedo which will de stroy a whole licet tf war vessels. It is neither cuiubersoiiicnor exi-rusive, and its work is certain. These torpedoes are so un erring and certain in their work of destruc tion that they will toon drive war-vessels from the seas. In alluding to these terrible engines, an Knglish officer recently said, in an address delivered before the Art society: Increased naval tower has only been ob tainable by increased gjZe. of gun, which lias carried with it a thousand other increases of cotst and of difficulty, liven of late, when the gun has grown to such gigantic proportions, although we at first sight shrink from its con sequences, we kooii steady ourselves with the recollection that such guns cost enormous fcums of money themselves; thnt they can only be worked Lv means of fcteam and hy draulic appliances more cosily still; that they can only be carried with speed at sea in steamships of a yet far more costly character; that when the whole miahty engine ship, gun and all other appliances is at length produced, they can only be made available by exercise and practice tor the acquirement of skill by means of still further outlay for fuel, for powder, and for shot and shell ; and, in short, that the bringing of big guns against our big guus at sea in suitable ships is a game of lavish expenditure and extravagance. 15ut the torpedo is a weapon of offense dif fering altogether from a gun in all these re spects: for, although eoch torpedo itself costs from four to fiw hundred pounds sterling, it can be di.-charged from almost any ship or boat whatever, and the fittings for discharg ing it arc of an expensive nature, lleie, then, we have every power furnished with the means of attacking our large war ships so cheap and simple that few powers are too petty or too impecunious to provide them on an emergency, while the larger powers couM, with the financial means at their disposal. completely compass and surround our few largest find finest ships with these agents of destruction. If this can b2 done on sea, the same can be done on land, and we may expect soon that modern warfare will be carried on mostiy by the new power. The changes that it will in augurate are many and startling. It is to be hoped it will contribute to the general peace of the world, as nations will sland on a more equal footing and the great powers will be more cautious in attacking the weaker. Instead of years of war, national disputes will be settled in a few days. If this be the result, then the new discovery will indeed contribute to the advance of our civ ilization not by destroying men, but by pre venting war. II AHLILS FItAXCIS ADAHM.

To prove that we are advancing in civiliza tion the reason is given that we are prolific in inventing engines to destroy each other. This is a paradox which the christian and the philanthropist cannot reconcile. Civili zation means refinement and culture. IJurke defines it as "the spirit of religion." Yet we display our culture, refinement and relig ion by boasting of new facilities for butch ering, slaughtering and massacreing our fellow-beings. According to logical reason ing civilization is advanced in proportion to the diminution of the means for murdering each other. In the dark ages men w ere called ignorant savages because only a few hundred were killed in battl. TJ,w -..n.i . A., VOJIl'4 an enhghtened age because we have facilities for decimating whole armies. If the destruc tiveness of the engines of war be evidences of civilizuti'on.we have reached the perfection of culture, refinement and religion,- for the day is not far distant when confronting ar mies will destroy each other by the march of civilization. Xo science has advanced po rapidly as that of war. In ancient times hngs and spears, bows and arrows, clubs, cfthes and pikes were the weapons with which hostile forces m,-t one another. As civilization advanced gun- New Y'ork Hernlil, 12th: The steamer Daniel Drew, of the People's line from Alba ny, brought two very angry and fond women to the city yesterday morning. One of them was Iiridget Bowen, a servant girl, of No. 407 East Fifty-sixth street, the other was Mrs. Louisa Metz, of Albany, a very well-to-do and neat German lady. They did not look with kindly eyes upon each other, be cause each wanted to get possession of a pretty little girl, tastefully clad, of about three years old, whom liridget claimed as her own offspring. The story is quite a ro mantic one, and was related to Sergeant lian- field, of the steamboat squad, at the central tflio0 yVii5er!liijciftfMvivsv,Ai:Iyis te:?.wnsisro eight months ago Bridget liowen was very ill, and had to bo taken to Bellevue hospital for treatment. So acute was her disorder and helpless her condition that she had to give her child to the care of the charites and correction. Bridget gTew worse from day to day, and at length her death was reported, or was understood to 'have taken place. The child was therefore turned over to Mr. Kellock, superintendent of the outdoor poor of the department of charities and correction. About this time Mrs. Louisa Metz, of No. 78 Elizabeth street, Albany, came to New York, and,- being childless, sought an orphan for adoption. Naturally she called on Mr. Kellock, and by him was shown the daughter of Bridget liowen. Her heart warmed to the homeless and lively little creature, and she agreed to adopt it, and gave security to guarantee the proper care of the girl. To Albany went the youngster with her "new mamma, who took every mehns at her disposal to render the baby's lot a happy one. Cleanliness and health blessed her, and the child of poverty put on the appearance of 1 he offspring of aiHuance. Eight months went by quickly and happily for Mrs. Metz and her adoDted darling, but the angel of maternity was not satisfied, and beneath its wing one morninsr appeared Bridget Bowen, claiming her cliild. She was alive, by some mistake or other, and had gone to Superintendent Kellock to get back her baby. The good old gentleman. sorely distressed to find that he had given away a living mother's daughter, furnished !ndget with the name and address of Mrs. Metz, and thither traveled Bridirct. AX fNTLEASAM KEXCO.NTRE. She called and asked to see her child. She was permitted to catch a eliniDse of it. but that was all. Louisa had resolved to retain the bright-eyed little fairy as long as she lived. I here were some unpleasant parts of speech exchanged by the rival mothers. But Metz would not surrender, wherefore Bridget had to depart as she came. She left Louisa's presence breathing vengeance, and called upon the chief of police at Albany. He sum moned both parties before him. " The conse quence of this act was that he was in a great trouble of mind. He could make nothing out of the case. So he took the papers and ad journed further hearing pending his examin ation of them. The women- had to be taken to separate apartments, Bridget lieggmg for ana succeeding in obtaining ises.-ion of tbe child for the nonce. Her maternal yearnings caused the chief to grant her this privilege. After the lapse of au hour or so, the chief, it is said, Rent for the women. Mrs. Metz an swered the summons in person, but Bridget and child had flown. Nothing was heard of them by the authorities until yesterday morn ing, when both turned np on board of the Drew. Bridget hail taken passage to New" York, and Mrs. Metz, hearing of it, followed her. They did not meet on the vessel, as Bridget undoubtedly kept out of sight, fear ful of pursuit. They met. however, face to face at the landing, pier 41 North fiver, and the result was a difficulty, which almost be came a personal conflict "for possession of the child. Othcer (irogan, of the steamboat squad, who apjeard at the right moment to interpose the majesty of the law between the women, ended the hostile demonstration. i.ach charred the other with the aUI netinn and it bothered the good-natured fellow ter ribly. Accordingly he hired a carriage and took the women and child to the central office. THE CHILI) TO THE MOTI1EU. From that place Sergeant BanfieM sent them to Superintendent Kellock, the inno cent author of all the mischief. Before they went, however, the child ehowed an unmis takable preference for the society of Mrs. Metz. Superintendent Kellock, like a second Solomon, adjudicated between the two moth ers, and gave the child to her whose offspring it was. Whatever benefit accrued to the Hebrew baby of Solomon's day, it cannot be claimed that any, in a material sense, is likely to come to the Hibernian child. There were no legal documents giving Mrs. Metz a right to the youngster, so no other course was left tor .Mr. Kellock. Kich or poor, however, is it rejt a triumr.h of the best feelintrs of hu manity that tiie lume of the mother for her child should be respected 't Poor Bridget, in the heedlessness of ordinary humanity, pf the philosophies of the moderns, did not die at the proper moment for her babv's welfare, but would Mrs. Metz or 2een Victoria, in Bridget's place, have done otherwise? To be the toy of the rich or the idol of the poor are alternatives that few children would hesi tate between; to be a dead woman or a live mother would find equallv few of the fair sex leading toward the grave. Bridget lived, and hfe. fortunately, has its righU as well as its burdens. New York Herald. 12tU. Boston", May 11. There are few men in their day who have figured so prominently in public hie, and then, while in the very prime of their useful career, slipped so com pletely into obscure retirement as has Charles Fiancis Adams. This withdrawal of Mr. Adams, it should brt explained, wa3 wholly voluntary; for, while he may occasionally con.-ent to become a fancy candidate for gov ernor at tha earnest solicitation of the Massa chusetts Democracy, it is nevertheless a fact well known and generally recognized among his intimate friends that, of late years, as well as at the present time, he has had no desire whatever for political honors. The allusion to his name in connection with this office, and that has become so frequent that the matter has for a long time been consid ered as a joke by his political opponents, a fact which I only revive as an excuse for stilting that there is no one who enjoys this harmless amusement more hugely than Mr. Adams himself. And here it should be stated that the common impression is tin erroneous one that Mr. Adams is that cold, distant, and unsocial gentleman which he has been so often and maliciously described. Repeat this nonsense f o his friends and neigh bors out in Ouinry, and you are immediately silenced by many instances of the pleasing amiability and hearty familiarity of the gen tleman so often and grosdy misrepresented. During the winter Mr. Adams occupies his Boston residence, on Mount Vernon street, but in the spring, summer, and autumn months he enjoys the seclusion of his Quincy mansion, which he formally resumed pos session of lor the ensuing season this after noon, much to the gratification of his fellow townsmen. Mr. Adams also has an office (with his sons, John (Juincy and Charles Francis, jr.,) in Pembcrton square, in the immediate vicinity of' Jeneral Butler's rooms, and on the opposite corner from the once magnificent residence of the late Governor Winthrop. A VISIT TO MR. ADAMS. It was in this modest and plainly-furnished office that the Herald correspondent found Mr. Adams this morning. He was in the midst of a pile of miscellaneous correspond ence which had just been brought in from tha postothce. He seemed to be as he in deed is enjoying the very best of health, and actually appeared younger than he did a dozen years ago, in spite of the volumes of vituperation which are continually poured out upon hiin by his political adversaries. I found in the course of conversation that he takes no more and no less interest in current politics than an ordinary citizen. He en deavors to keep posted, and if he has an opinion on men and measures he expresses it with moderation, jet in a manner which will adiifit of no misunderstanding. THAT TILDEN LETTER. In the course of our conversation that cele brated letter which Mr. Adam9 sent to Gov ernor Tihlen on the fifth of March, was casu ally alluded to. "Ah." said Mr. Adams, laughing, "that letter seems to have created a good deal more talk than was necessarj. I simply wrote to Mr. Tilden that I thought he was the real President of the United States, and expressed to him my firm belief that he should have been inaugurated instead of General Hayes. The letter was considered, and in fact was written by me as a private communication to Mr. Tilden, and not intended for publication. But when Mr. Tilden received it he showed it to some of his most confidential friends, and they were very anxious that he should print it. I was communicated with, and asked if 1 had any objection to its publication, and I answered that I had not; and indeed I had no objections, although 1 had not supposed or indited it with the intention that it was to be made public. The truth, however, is stamped upon it and cannot be gainsaid, and I have not yet had it contradicted by facts. Its truth rendered an absolute denial of its assertion impossible. I have never regretted that letter, because there was simply the whole truth in it, and 1 have a great regard for what is right. Since inditing that letter I have received an amazing number of com munications from fill parts of the country some from as distant points as California many of them lauding my course and many others of a vituperative character, manifestly written by drunken persons, and so coarse others I have labeled 'I'op- them carefully away." with the approval of the people at large. It is undeniable that the influential members of both parties have an etficacious influence which is to be realized when you look at the present tactics of the administration, ion know the extra session which it was supposed was sure to ensue iii .June, has been post poned until October. The cause of that post ponement, I think, is easily tr;iced to the ap prehension on the part of the administration that if congress were to assemble now there would be serious political complications arise on account of the unsettled condition of the country which I have alluded to. It is very evident that this is the cause of the postpone ment." SENATOR BLAINE. It was evident from Mr. Adams's further expressed views that he is not a very ardent admirer of Mr. Blaine, but in discoursing upon the career of that would-be President he was very moderate both in tone and lan guage. " There was a letter which I wrote to Ohio during the last campaign," said Mr. Adams, "in which I deprecated the condition of a country where a man notoriously corrupt came so near receiving the Presidential nom ination as did one of the leading candidates of the Cincinnati convention. Mr. Blaine, on noticing this letter, came out with a state ment in which he made no allusion whatever to the subject-matter contained in my com munication, but contented himself by abusing me for some opposition I manifested toward him in congress twenty years ago." ADAMS ON 11UTLEH. "I have just been reading a long account," remarked Mr. Adams, laughing, "of an in terview which Butler had with Mr. Hayes the other day, and it amused me very much. I see that Butler told him Sam Bowles and 1 were waiting outside; but," laughing again, "such stories ought to be published on the first of April. But," he added, reflectively, "the newspapers have always a good deal to say. I find that they send me to all parts of the world every few days, and sometimes I have been annoyed by my friends coming to bid me good by. "j "How about the Springfield Republican?" asked the Heruld correspondent, significant ly. "Is not that a nicely-conducted, readable journal?" " Yes, yes," answered Mr. Adams, with a hearty laugh; "but, leaving aside all consid erations for, you know, it has a great pen chant for me" (laughing again) "I must conscientiously say that the Jiepublican is one of the most readable and best conducted newspapers in the country. Mr. Bowles is a very able man. If it is true, as I see it re ported, that he has had a talk with Mr. Hayes, I am very glad of it, for if he follows Mr. Bowles's wise counsel lie will be greatly benefited. I regard Mr. Bowles as a gentle man of wide experience, one who has a thor ough knowledge of politics, and his counsel is at all times valuable; but as I remarked before about newspapers, thev sometimes get a great deal too much in them, and often considerable matter that never amounts to anything." MISSISSIPPI. CIIAISLOTTU C I SUM AX. An I'npubllnlied Htorr. formlnc one of the Important Kventu in the Late AetreM'a Life. What a Staff Correspondent of the Sew York Tribnne Thinks abont Poll' tics and the Coming Ouber natorlal Campaign. 'op-guns,' and filed A GOOD WORD FOR TTIESIDENT HAYES. In reply to a question about the policy pur sued by Mx. Hayes since his inauguration, Mr. Adams answered : "Well, I must say that I think Mr. Hayes occupies a very hard position a most difficult one and one which I would not desire to hold under simi lar circumstances. As far as the man is con cerned, I believe him an upright and honest one, but he has got a very hard task before him." THE SOUTHERN TOLICY. "In reference to his southern policy I think it is one which is more liable to inure to the benefit of the Democrats than to the Repub licans, for he seems to be pursuing the same course which not only the Democrats, but all honest and patriotic citizens have for a long time favored. Of course, it is not what sucti men as Blaine and Butler will delight over, and, therelore, I am not surprised that they and their kind are liable to find fault with him. Hayes's policy is entirely and pleas ingly different from that of Grant's, and if the hitter's had been continued it would have wrought incalculable injury to the country. The policy of Hayes, you will notice, is a policy favored by Schurz, and is in perfect" accord with the utterances of that gentleman before his identification with the cabinet. On the whole, 1 think .Mr. Hayes has done very well thus far, but, in view of the outlook ahead, I fear that he cannot mas ter the multitude of difficulties that he is likely to encounter." A NEW PARTY IMPROBAHLE. "What do you think," Mr. Adams," I asked, "of the feeling that is prevalent throughout, the west and south? Will there be a revolution among the Republicans or a new fusion party of dissatisfied Democrats and Republicans?" "Well, I think it is very evident that there is no little dissatisfaction amonir the Repub licans throughout the entire country mean ing, of course, the Blame stripe, who wese notoriously corrupt during the reign of Gen eral Grant. There is also great dissatisfac tion in both parties about the manner in which the Presidential contest was decided and perhaps we have not heard the last of it The rumors that Blaine and Butler are un der suspicion as being likely to lead in a re volt agSnst Mr. Hayes were then alluded to by the Herald correspondent. "I do not believe much in this talk about political revolts, answered Mr. Adams, "and my experience has led me to the conviction that they very rarely amount to anything more tnan wnat ycu might call a growl irom disgruntled politicians who have some fan cied gnevancea. and who are. in the end. finally pacified either by a concession on their part or on the part of the administration. 1 hese disturbances, of course, under a re publican form of government, are very apt to occur; but tne wants ot the tew seldom blind an administration to the desires of the many. REPUBLICAN CONGRESSMEN ALL AT SEA. " "The fact is, I suppose," continued Mr, Adams, tnere is not a representative of a itepublican district in the country (except, perhaps, Vermont, which is always steady). but in the large and doubtful States but who is more or less dissatisfied, and does not know exactly what path or policy to follow at the present moment. The ways of Mr. Haves are as mysterious and annoying to them as they are gratifying to the better class of the general community, whose welfare he seems to have more at heart than that of the politi cians; but after all the difficulties in the way of Mr. Hayes art? very numerous and very great. I do not envy him his trying posi tion ; but, on the contrary, it is one of such an extraordinary and delicate nature that my feelings cannot be otherwise than of a most sympathizing character. I think that any one similarly situated is worthy the sympathy of every man who desires to see justice and right triumph. "I myselt am out of politics, but still I feel that general interest in current events common to all citizens; but nevertheless I am not disposed to intrude my views upon the public' THE CAIIINKT. When I mentioned the President and cabi net to Mr. Adams, he resumed as follows: "The cabinet is composed of gentlemen who have earned honorable distinction in civic and ofiicial positions, and for whom, in dividuilly, I have fcreut respect. Theo retically, I am of the opinion that it is a very stroDg "cabinet, yet, practically, I do no be lieve it is, for the reason that it does not meet New York Tribune, 12th. Meridian, Miss., May 5. It is often said that in Louisiana there is more politics to the square mile than hi any other State in the Union. In Mississippi there appears, just now to be less. The white people, having control of the State eovernment, and of nearly all the counties, and being, besides, well satisfied with the course of the national administration, have no grievances to talk about. The negroes, finding that the pre diction, repeated by their leaders in every campaign, that the Democrats would put them back in slavery if they got control, has not proved true, begin to think politics a de lusion. They discover that they are as free as ever, that their wages are as high as be fore, and their rights just as well protected. They do not entirely forgive the whites for the intimidation campaign of 1375, which wrested political power from their hands, but the most intelligent among them admit that their race is better off since the strife with the white element for the possession 6f the public offices has ceased. A prominent local colored leader expressed the prevalent senti ment to-day when he said: "Our people don't mean to meddle much with politics for a while. v 'TAINT NO USE. The white folks have got the power and they mean to keep it. I reckon most colored folks are in a better fix with things as they are ...... WlLj VII-X., n If UCUOv.. T ..WM trouble we were the ones that suffered. Some nigger was almost sure to get killed at every political row. It wasn't right to defeat us as they did by mob law, but it was bound to come. The Republican party had to go down. It had no good leaders, and was controlled by a parcel ot fellows who made use ot it for their own benefit. Now we've got nothing to do but to stand aside and let the white people quarrel among themselves. 'T won't be long before they'll fall out. Then we'll select the men who are up for office that we think are our best friends, and vote for them." WHAT COLORED LEADERS SAY. The same policy of taking no active part in politics for the present was advocated by two of the most influential colored leaders in the ' State, whom I met in Jackson recently. They said that the old Republican party in Mississippi was dead, and could not be re vived. As to organizing a new party,, they did not believe the colored men would be wise to attempt it. Any movement in the way of opposition to the Democracy must come from white men to be successful, they said; and they did not look for any such movement in the gubernatorial campaign the next fall. ILwas possible, however, that the Democrats would put up a ticket so unpop ular as to bring about a bolt, and in that case the Republicans would supptrt the bolters' nominations at the polls, but would hold no State convention of their own. Special to the Cincinnati Enquirer.) New York, May F. Ceiia" Iogan prints a story to-day which she says is a hitherto unpublished episode in the late Charlotte Cushman's life. When the great actress was middle aged and ugly, so the writer says, she was playing an engagement at the old National theater in Cincinnati. Conrad B. Clarke, much .Miss Cushman's junior, and a very handsome and promising actor, was then leading man of the company. Miss Cush nian at once took a fancy to the young actor, who, in time, became her most obsequi ous follower, and Miss Logan le lieves that Miss Cu-hiuan's liking for Clarko was much more than mere admiration. The story continues: Matters had stood thus for some- months. ne even ing Miss Cushtran was going to the theater alone, when a weak, haggard-looking woman approached her. with a baby in her arms. She was a small, red haired, fragile looking creature. Laying her hand on Miss Cush man's shoulder, she said: " Miss Cushman, I think a woman ot your genius and position might have plenty ot admirers without taking up with the husband of a poor woman like me." The tragedienne paused in blank amazement. " Are you talking of rue?" she asked. "I am." "And you say I have taken your husband from you ?" " i es, you. Char lotto Cushman." " I don't know you. May 1 ask the name of this precious husband of yours." "Conrad Clarke," was the reply. " What!" exclaimed Miss Cushman, iighast; " I didn't know he was married." " Yes, this is his baby." "Good Heaven, woman, you surprise me. I ask you to believe that 1 knew nothing of youc existence until this moment; and now let me go, as I am late. But relieve your mind, Mrs. C.arke, as far as 1 am concerned. When this engagement is over 'he never acts with me again.' " So saying the great actress hurried away. All smiles, bows and honeyed words, Clarke greeted her that night. She gave a deathblow to all his hopes not as tenderly as many a woman so situated might have done, but with charac teristic decision. "Clarke," said she loudiy, in the presence of everybody, "if you ever dare to open your mouth to me again, I will jump straight down your throat; I will, by God." So unexpected was this shot that Clarke fairly reeled under it. On learning from his wife what she had done, he became furious at what he declared was a malicious scheme to ruin him: and, leaving her, he swore never to live with her again. Annie Clarke easilv obtained a divorce from him and shortly after married an actor named Forrest, ef Cleveland, with whom she lived wretchedly, and in a year or two died miser ably, her whole career having been sad and unhappy from first to last. Nor was Clarke's fate any better. He gave himself wholly to drink, sank lower and lower, and finally he perished an outcast and a beggar, and was laid in a drunkard's grave. By a strange series of circumstances Clarke s child was adopted and most tenderly reared by one of our brightest wits the only one of his peculiarly caustic kind left, a man who wields a powerful weapon with his pen, who has two parties, for and against hiin, one which hates and fears him, the other which loves and praises him Don Piatt. Some one who passed that night with Charlotte Cush man told me that on arriving at home after the performance she sank down on the floor, and crouched there in her clothes, m abject despair, until daydjreak. She had been touched in her affections. At, middle-ago a woman often loves more fervently more with her mind than her heart than in her green and gala day3. She had also been deeply wounded in her pride. She had deigned to smile upon an obscure actor, had tried to raise him to an equal position with herself, and he had deceived her as to his status, had neglected a wife for her sake. Never af ter, when his name was mentioned, would she say more than "he is a clever actor a very clever actor." ' THIRD ! PORTA Op Bxritr.-K.iKT-u tt Over Muff a Jillit, 'ACTIOX !

SOLK ACEXTS FOlt COOK'S CllAMl'ACiE imEKlAI,. TIIE G UBERN ATOKIA L CONTEST. The candidates now prominent for the nom ination for governor are Ex-Governor Hum phreys, who represents the Bourbon element. General Lowry, who belongs to the liberal wing of the party and has an enthusiastic local support ia-the southwestern counties, and Governor .Stone, who is also a man of liberal views, and whose prudent, honest ad ministration deserves indorsement. Governor Stone's support is chiefly in the northern part of the State. MERIDIAN is a town of three or four thousand inhabi tants that tried to be a city a few years ago, and, inflating itself far beyond the limits of healthy growth, brought on a disastrous col lapse in 1873, from which it has not yet begun to recover. A score of stores are vacant and the occupants of many others appear to be living principally upon nope. The surround ing country is poor, but the railroad facilities would maintain in prosperity the town at its present size if one of the roads, the Mobile and Ohio, did not seek to cut its throat bv carrying cotton from points north of here all the way to Mobile cheaper than to this place. e. x. 8.
