y e aro ia receipt of a letter from a very
. intelligent correspondent, a resident of Holly
Springs, winch we publish in another column
of thia morning's Atpeal. The facts therein
presenL;d speak for themselves, and need no
argument to strengthen or make them clearer,
Holly S,iring is the center of a wealthy and
F4y tnTjvtrfr"wtntCTn ur ifiiasisoippB, 4U
pie of which are anxious to trade with Mem
phia to the exclusion of any other point. The
only thing that stands in the way of the con
summation of their desires and our wishes is
the Chicago, St. Louis and New Orleans rail
road company, which seem to have but one
idea, and tbit is: that all freights should be
forced to New Orkans, St. Louis or Chicago.
To this end a prohibitory tariff is levied upon
freights shipped to other points, the local
traffic being thus forced to pay for the de
ficencies inevitable in carrying freights under
the stimulus of riva'ry to points so far apart
as (ire thw extremities of this road. There
should bo 'some remedy for this. There
must be some recourse in law. If
not, the sooner we know it, with a
view to securing the needed legislation, the
better. There can be no objection to legiti
mate opposition in trade, and all fair-minded
men most applaud enterprise wherever and
whenever it shows itself. Bat there is noth
ing legitimate or enterprising in this heavy
discrimination against Memphis end in favor
of other points, or in punishing he people
who live along the lino of road and contrib
ute most to its support, merely because they
prefer to trade with their old friends and
neighbors who do business here. There must
be some way to put a stop to so unrighteous
proceeding. There must be some remedy,
lome method, by which a growing community
like ours can be protected from a rapacity
that is like nothing so much as the method
of the gentlemen of the road whose cry is
"Stand and deliver." These railroads are
the creation of the legislatures of the States
through which they pass, and, their charters
to the contrary notwithstanding, are in no
sense removed from the reach of the long
arm of those legislatures. Their charters
can be amended, if not repealed, and they
can thus be brought under subjection to
law and compelled to deal as fairly with
the local trafficker as with the now more
lucky trader who lives at either
end of the lines. Hut before steps to so de
sirable an end can be taken, we suggest that
ovr:. . merchants give expression to their
viers, and respond to the generous senti
ments of our country cousins, who prefer
and want to deal with us alone. The signs
betoken a bounteous harvest, and at all the
great trade centers tbere is felt the presage of
good times coining. Nowhere more than in
the region tributary to Memphis are these
signs more hopeful, nor at any other point are
the pres.iges laore reassuring than here. It
behooves us to prepare for a propitious sea
son, to put our houe in order and to do all
we can to keep what trade we Lave and get
as much more cn we can.
THE qi'EMTIOX O' II AKASTI.E.
We publbli eluewhere to-day a memorial
which will bo presented to the general coun
cil at it next session. It is from the doctors,
and is in very decided opposition to the es
tablishment of quarantine. Ia the long list
of names attached to this memorial our read
er will recogniie thow of many gentlemen who
have spent all the years of their manhood in
the practice of a laborious and exacting pro
fession, and who occupy not only cbstinguibhed
places in that profession, but stand among
the highest in the social scale. They are
gentlemen who would be listened to with
profound respect upon any topic, but es
pecially so when they speak as in this in
stance, out of the fullness of lifetime experi
ence. And yet we venture to differ with them.
Taking the paragraphs of their memorial sert
oiw.we find them insufficient to overcome the
strong desire the people Lave for any and
ail the protection against epidemic disease
they can gt, be it little or much. They do
not want to wait for the presence of yellow
fever to establish a quarantine. They be
lieve that an ounce of prevention is worth a
pound of cure, and therefore would prepare
for fever or cholera by the establishment of a
quarantine which, as a precautionary meas
ure only, could not possibly excite suspicion
ot alarm. It will require the expendi
ture of money, but it need not be a very large
am, unless fever does break out in New Or
leans and something more than merely pre
cautionary measures have to be enforced.
And this can be done without more than a
momentary detention of the boats and with
out the least detriment to trade. Indeed, we ,
are of the opinion that when the people else
where come to understand that we are protect
ing our.-lves against the possible recurrence
of such an epidemic as that of 1873 which
cot ua so much of life and money they will.

and. although in deep mourning for the
death of her father, she was dressed in ex
quisite taste. Her face is far from being
beautiful, although, l must confess, the most
lively and engaging I ever saw. Her eyes
are quite black, and seem dancing over with
mirth when talking, and her voice was that
half-mocking, seductive tone, possible only
in courtiers and people of great diplomatic
education, with a'l this, she is perfectly
natural, and has the most exquisite manners
of any lady that I have ever met. She is
very frank, and speaks with perfect ease on
any Bubject. Her mouth is very large, with
lips too full, perhaps, for beauty; but the
upper part of her face is very fine and sym
metrical. She wore a crepe bonnet, so only
the smallest bit of her coiffure was visible;
but I saw enough to assure me of an aris
tocratic turn of the head and dark braids of
hair that clung closely to the nape of the
shapely neck. Her esprit (wit) is noted, and
during the time that she was talking, her
pungent and sptrttueue remarks on every
thing and everybody revealed her character
as perfectly as if I had known her a lifetime.
She is a great devotee to mueic,and the great
est known protectrice of the divine art in
Vienna. As usual, her soirees continued the
most brilliant in the capital until the death
of her father closed her hospitable doors.

Elizabeth (N. J.) Herald: To most men of
good nervous systems, the lugging into a
speech of a dinner of West Point graduates
. threat to uetena tne personal government
f I'rooicUnt Ilavaa against the possible ac
tion of congress or the courts, seems not only
uncalled for, but rather revolutionary for an
ofheial of the government. General Sherman
has been using the army of the United States
to set up usurpers and to overthrow the State
Fovernments elected by the people. In
1872-'7.'J, under orders from Washington to
assist Marshal Packard, uenerai tmory over

representatives in Louisiana, seized and

that trxps were massed in Washington in
the winter of 1377 to inaugurate the Repub

might be the action of congress, and that
General Grant contemplated the seizure of
Mr. Tilden and his imprisonment on the
charge of treason. And this is the school in

to the sentiments which he expressed at the
West Point dinner.
Chicago Inter-Ocean: "The man who loves
a good and beautiful woman, and cannot
persuade ber to marry him this month of
June, deserves sympathy." No, he deserves
nothing of the sort. Such, at any rate, must
have been the opinion of the great bard,
from whose verdict there can be no appeal,
and who says:
That man who hath a tongue together with

Htate bankrupt Laws Wanted.
Now that congress has repealed the nation
al bankrupt law, the old State laws respecting
bankruptcy will be revived and put into ope
ration after the first of next September, when
the repeal goes into effect. In some States
new laws will probably be made. In Rhode
Island this has already been done. Fully
one-third of the States have no insolvency
laws at all. and the existing laws in the rest
of the States have little uniformity in their
provisions. The twenty-five States which
have bankrupt lawi ot their own are the fol
lowing: California, Connecticut, Dakota, Del
aware, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa-, Kan
sas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maiyland,
Massachusetts, Michigan, North Carolina,
Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, Ohio,
Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina,
Vermont and Wisconsin.
A Oeaeral Indian War Predicted.
St. Louis Globe-Democrat: Telegrams
from San Francisco, from Portland, Oregon,
and from Dead wood and Bismarck, Dakota
Territory, all announce hostile movements by
the Indians. In Portland it is said that the
well-known Chief Moses has already fifteen
hundred braves, and that in case of an out
break be will be reinforced by four thousand
men from the reservations. Several mur
ders have been committed, and there are
many indications of another Indian war. Af
ter leaving a sufficient force on the Rio
Grande, in accordance with the advice of the
commissioners, who have reported upon the
condition of affairs in and near El Paso
county, and enough men to watch all the
Indians of the reservations who may remain
ostensibly quiet, all the resources of our
army are likely to be taxed to the utmost.

New York Evening Post: Republicans who
are asking themselves whether it is worth
while to vote again for Senator Conkling, di
rectly or indirectly, may bo helped to answer
the question by the testimony of Ex-Marshal
Pitkin. It exposes Mr. Conkling as a nego
tiator with the lawyer of the disreputable
A nderson for information concerning the East
Feliciana protest and the Mathews letters.
His purpose was not to denounce a crime or
right a wrong; he nover has made a move
ment in that direction. He appears to have
desired that "Mr. Mathews might be held by
tbe bridle a little," and, perhaps, that Mr.
Hirlan might be defeated as justice of the
bui reme court. Th:s secret negotiator and
intriguer is scarcely the man for senator,
though he mibt have served as Mrs. Jenks's
amanuensis.
An Irishman in Peoria has a mouse that
i without feet, legs, neck and tail, and is
blind. He wants to 6ell it to some circus, to
which he thinks it would be ajfortune; but the
people there ought to form a joint stock com
pany and buy it for breeding purposes in the
interest of the whole company, for there can
be no question that mice of that sort would
be far more useful about the house than the
ordinary kind.
HOT sPiU(itESERTATI0X
The Cosy'
Ueqnetet by the
rres
ent to Prorrfd with their
New l ork Herald usbmgton corre-
fpondent, 20th : At the caii.et meeting to
day the omission in th enrollment of the
sundry civil appropriation bill of the impor
tant part of what related to the Hot Springs,
Arkansas, wa3 a prominent subject of discus
sion. As a resnlt of the debate, the secre
tary of the interior sends the following com
munication to the late commissioners of the
Hot Sprintrs:
Gentle v en Thj President directs me to
requet-t you, as the late commissioners ap
pointed under the act of congress approved
March 3, 1:77, to settle the conflicting claims
to a portion of the Hot bprings reservation,
in the btate ot Arkansas, and tor other pur
poses, to take charge of the records of your
proceedings under the said act, and to pro
cued to the consideration of the testimony in
all these cases in which the testimony was
taken in relation to the rights of the respect
ive claimants to any part of the Hot springs
reservation, ana to pertorm such-work: as
may facilitate the early adjudication of such
claims, and also to report to this department
what measures may appear to you necessary
to protect the nghU of all parties upon said
reservation, as well as the interests of the
United States, trusting that congress at its
next session will adopt such fetrislation as
may be necessary to confirm the acts done by
you in the meantime and provide for a due
compensation for your seivicts. In view of
the fact that fears ar.- utertuined that seri
ous difficulties may arise between the conflict
ing claimants to portions of said tract, you
are requested to enter upon the discharge of
the task above mentioned at as early a day
as possible, and that such steps shall be taken
by you as may be necessary to preserve the
present status of the claimants until their
rights are finally determined.
The Late Queen of Hpaln-
There are few who will not, in sympathy,
loin the circle ot mourners in bpain who are
now bewailing the death of the girl-queen,
taken away in her youth, and almost in the
honeymoon ot her bridal happiness, in Mad
rid Wednesday. Maria de las Mercedes.the
wife of Alfonso All and (jaeen ot bpain, was
but eighteen years of age on Monday, when
she was ljing unon that bed of sickness which
has proved her bed of death. But a few short
months aero all Europe rang with accounts of
the brilliancy ot the marriage in the church
of the Atocba, which seemed to herald so
many years of happiness to the wedded cous
ins, tor, unlike so many royal alliances, it
was a union of affection, and the princess was
loved by all who krew her. Her husband had
looked upon her from the first moment that
his heart bad been touched with all that in
tensity of sentiment so peculiar in many re
spects to Italian and Spanish lovers, and the
whole nation was gratified by his choice,
whom they knew to be, despite the French
birth of her father, bo thoroughly Spanish in
all her sympathies, bince the death in child
birth of the Princess Charlotte of England,
and the insanity of the unhappy Ex-Empress
Carlotta, of Mexico, it is the saddest chapter
in all the domestic history ot royalty.
Grant a Dangeroas nan.
St. Louis Times: As a soldier, General
Grant t deserves all the fame and gratitude
his party has so lavishly accorded him. He
ig eminently a militarv man. It might be
proper to say that he is the safest man to
whom the generalship of the army could be
intrusted to-day. He is honest, determined.
stern and inflexible in the obedience of or
ders which his judgment may not urge him
are utterly destructible to matured plans, and
prompt in action. At the head ot the army
he would be a tower of strength in time of
trouble, either from without or within. But
he has no capacity for the conduct of civil
affairs. In the hands of designing partisans,
he is as clay under the manipulation of the
potter. He has no mird of his own in po
litical matters, but fol'ows blindly the dicta
tion of those he may have chosen to advise
him. Ibus, he is a dangerous man; not es
sentially from any innate disposition to do
harm, or transcend the powers of bis station,
but from bis inability to detect and prevent
the machinations of his subordinates in civil
affairs.
Be Warned in Time.
New York Evening Post: The elections
of this year are preparatory for a more impor
tant election. The canvass of 1878 is for
members of congress; the canvass of 1880
will be for President; and the two are closely
related. The saying is attributed to Horace
Greeley that a party cannot hope to elect a
President it there is a majority against it in
the house of representatives last elected be
fore the Presidential election. The saying
was disproved in 1876, when President Hayes
was elected, although the Democrats then
bad a majority in the popular branch of con
gress. There is no doubt, however, about
the truth which the saying was meant to em
body. The course of a Presidential canvass
is usually determined two years before it be
gins, liy tnat time the parties into wmch
the country may be divided have declared
their principles, and the people are prepared
to choose among tbem. The political prefer
ences shown by the voters in the congression
al districts this year will indicate, not with
absolute certainty, but with tolerable accura
cy, their preferences throughout the Union
year after next. It ia well, therefore, for
party leaders everywhere to remember that
they are now making platforms and molding
public opinion, not in their several districts
merely, but in the whole country.
Then and Now-t-A Warnlns-
Galveston News : In the period
of slavery southern conservatism was mainly
solicitous ot the defense ot that institution
against encroachments and aggressions
through the k ederal government. Its polit
ical philosophy was not a mass of mere ab
stractions, as has been frequently said, about
the rights of ihe States and the limitations of
i ederal authority, but it was material at bot
tom, lhe material consideration perished,
in spite of the philosophy held in common by
southern slaveholders and northern Demo
crats, and at length thoughtful citizens, iden
tified with material interests at the south
which need and which are justly entitled to
be upheld and promoted by r ederal legisla
tion,' begin to realize that the philosophy
which failed as a barrier and a defense in the
sectional conflict which overthrew slavery, is
now telling against such legislation by the
part which it plays as a venerable Democratic
tradition. Let northern Democrats who are
disposed to stickle for" this tradition be ad
monished. Let them understand that south
ern intelligence is coming to adjust its polit
ical ideas to the exigencies ot new conditions,
and that, to be sure of the confidence and
adhesion hereafter of southern conservatism,
they must offer it something more substan
tial than the husks of exploded policies and
the ghosts ot dissipated philosophies.
An Austrian Emperor and his I.ove-
Htory.
The Emperor Francis Joseph of Austria is
indefatigable in bis application to business.
He retires to rest at the hour when life is be
ginning in Vienna, and at five o'clock in the
winter, as in the summer, tbe emperor, active.
laborious and watchful, is always on foot
again. He breakfasts on a cup of coffee
placed on his desk, smokes one of the ordi
nary Viennese cigars while reading volumin
ous dispatches, and remains hard at work un
til the early family dinner. Enthusiastic
sportsman as he is, and devoted to mountain
scenery, no wonder he is delighted to hurry
away to his favorite hunting-grounds in the
hills of the Saltzkammergat. He leaves Vi
enna in the evening like an honest merchant
who has finished his business; be crosses the
TraunBee in the night, and arrives at Isehl at
five o'clock in the morning. There he is to
be seen in his blouse, with his great walking
stick, roaming about in the most enchanting
district of all his picturesque domains, or
chatting familiarly with the peasants or their
children. He is very happy in his marriage.
His first meeting with the future empress was
romantic. One of her sisters had been des
tined for the imperial throne, and when
Francis Joseph in his hunting-dress arrived
one evening at his father-in-law's residence
on the Trauneee, he was received by four
young ladies of the family, who have all
since then made excellent marriages. As he
was chatting with the group be saT an ap
parition of beauty, with magnificent hair
floating over her shoulders, illuminated in tbe
full glow of the sunset, approaching them
trom a neighboring wood. It was the Prin
cess Elizabeth, the fifth of the sisters, and
the emperor from that moment became her
elave.
Homethloar Should be Done with Mala
mrcet.
New York Times: Although Bristol is a
small and unimportant town (it is called a
city in the south), it has two mayors, two
municipal governments, two bodies of police,
and is taxed in two States. It is in both
Tennessee and Virginia, the center of Mam
street being the dividing line, and its pecu
liar position causes no little confusion and
many droll incidents. Young couples elope
from Virginia, and, by crossing the street,
enter Tennessee, and are married without
hindrance. A man commits a crime in Ten
nessee, flies to the opposite sidewalk in Vir
ginia, and defies the officers of the former
State. He needs to be very guarded in his
movements, however.lest he cross the bound
ary, and become amenable to the laws of the
commonwealth he has fled, or stepped away
from. Fugitives are often pulled across the
street by officers armed with a warrant, and
bo legally arrested. Not long since, a fellow
who bad stolen a horse in Tennessee crossed
the boundary by walking twenty feet and
seating himself on a pile of dry goods boxes,
laughed a pursuing policeman to scorn.
While bo occupied a law-abiding citizen
pushed over the pile of boxes, aid the thief
fell within the confines of Virginia and into
the arms ot tbe waiting and watchinir minion
of the law. Women who prefer to have their
children born in one or the other States often
live on one side ot Ma'n street and cross over
jusc beiore tne comin!.' event. 1 here are sev
eral instances in wLicn expectant mothers
have been a little too late, and thus
children designed for Virginian nativity have
u.-en corn on tennet-see soil, whi'e predes
tined Tennesseans have clearly missed their
dettmy by beini; enrolled in the census of
irginia. A number of mature Bristolites
are still uncertain of their place of birfjj,
having vainly spent time and money trying
to discover beyond doubt whether they are
Virginians or Tennesseans. It is plain that
sometmng suouid be done with Main street,
and at once.

speakers among them say that they intend
to celebrate the anniversary ot the Declara

made by the worst agitators in the city, two
ot whom were prominent leaders during the
labor troubles last summer. Canlin, one of
the editors of the German Socialistic ore an.
will speak in German, and Cape, the British
subject, who appealed to his government for
redress after his confinement in the be. Louis

in English. V Orel, the Bohemian, will ad

This element is probably the most dangerous

that the gathering will occasion a disturbance

Proposed Sew Product for Alabama's
ISOll.
Huntsville Independent: Governor David
P. Lewis has received a letter from Mr. Wil
son Watson, of Brooklyn, inclosing some jute
seed, and urging the importance)! develop
ing the culture ot jute in Alabama, the let
ter has the indorsement, in his own hand
writins, of the venerable philanthropist.
Peter Cooper, the Greenback candidate for
President in 1876. The agricultural report
for 1876 states that Mr. C. B. Stewart, of
Montgomery, raised jute eight feet high,
"which branched largely." Corn, cotton,
oats and wheat lands are good tor jute, rais
ing three thousand pounds in Btalks, or one
thousand pounds in hber per acre; which, at
hve cents per pound, would give htty .dollars
per acre, seven times above tne average ot
six dollars and seventy-six cents, this latter
being the average of product values in Ala
bama staple productions. In his letter to
Governor Lewis, Mr. Wilson adds: "Advised
by Mr. Cooper, I am urging on our State leg'
islature the polity of developing said pro
ducts, and 8ii k. by paying bounties. This
system made England and France the two
richest nations in the world. General LeDuc,

that the full development ot such products

The British Judge.
London Week: There are few positions
more enviable than that ot an English judge.
A salary ot twenty-hve thousand dollars a
year, with a pension of fifteen thousand dol
lars on retirement, are pickings tor which a
French or a German judge, who does much
the same work for about two thousand
five hundred dollars or three thou
sand dollars a year, must long with
all the strength ot his judicial mind. If
the pecuniary position of a judge is good.
hi3 social status is even better. On circuit
he is treated with almost royal honors, and
on the bench the outward deference paid to
him by suitors, by witnesses, and, above all.
by counsel, is enough to turn the head of any
but the most humble-minded ot human be
ings; and humble-mindedness is not the char
acteristic of judges any more than of other
people, lhe British judge has many virtues.
He is not tD be bought; his honor ia above
suspicion; his moral character is, inmost
cases, immaculate. He is, except when af
flicted with the gout, or exasperated by a
suitor who insists upon conducting his own
case, uniformly courteous, and he is dignified
in the extreme; sometimes a little overdoing
the part, and, usually, in the inverse propor
tion to the strength of his intellect.
Besting Places of the Poets.
The departure of Bryant suggests a brief
reference to the resting places of poetic ge
nius. Joel Barlow, the author of the first
American epic, died in Europe and was buried
there. Mrs. bigourney was buried in Hart
ford, of vhich she was a lifelong ornament.
Joseph Rodman Drake was buried a few miles
from New York on a private plot on the mar
gin of Long Island Sound. Halleck found
an honored grave in Groton, Connecticut, the
place of his nativity. When disabled by age
from his duties as Astor s clerk, be returned
thither and there passed his last days. Rob
ert C. Sands, once a New York poet of some
note, is buried in St. Paul's churchyard. He
was one of Bryant's editorial rivals being in
his day the leading man on the Commercial
Advertiser. Turning to British authorship,
it may be added that Wordsworth found a
grave at Ridal Mount, near which be passed
his happiest days, bouthey is buried at Kes
wick, where tbe best pare ot bis lite was
spent in arduous literary labor. Shelley and
Keats crave distinction to the Protestant cem
etery at Rome, while Scott rests at Dryburgh
Abbey and Bryan at the little parish church
near ewsteaa Abbey.

Well, 'tis a goodly tale, we think, and close

And there are wonders left us to behold
If we but think to luolt between the bars.
E'en now. before our eres. his large heart warm
With the fine beat that shames ear colder blood.

As that In which old Bunyan's hero stool

Through shade and sunshine hand in hand they
pressed;
Now combating the foes that lay in wait.
And now In pleasant meadows lulled to rest.
Early the Palace Beautiful thc7 found,
Wnere Prudence. Charity and Faith abide;
The Lowly Valley little had to wound
Their gentler beans devoid of scom and pride.
The darker Valley of the Shadow of Death
They passed, but with them One, they knew, was

Stayed by whose rod and staff the Psalmist saith
me toning pugnm snail no evil tear.
And many seasons afterward they dwelt
In Vanity's great city. There anart

He, too, has fought with giants those that lurk

And Christiana from the outset took
hweet Merer for a-srulde and bosom friend.
And sought with her tbe poor In every nook,
living as one mar to me iKra aoia lena.
Together thus they climbed above the pass
Where from the hill delectable 'tis elven
To gaze at moments through the shepherd's glass.
And catch a far-oil, rapturous glimpse oi heaven.

He used to be called in parliament "Lord
Palmerston a lipr, as being always put for

act of the ministry. Perhape this was the
reason why Lord Beaconsfield Bent him to the
stamping ground of General Ignatieff in the
east.
It is said of Prof. Fawcett, the blind mem
ber of parliament, that no sooner had he rec
ognized that he was hopelessly blind for life
he was shot in the eyes by a companion
while out partridge shooting than he de
termined that "it should make no difference,'

Of Lord Beaconsfield innumerable mots are

anxiety with which he looked forward to his
prolonged absence from England. 'It won'i
be a long business,' was the reassuring reply
and, after a pause. Lord Beaconsfield added
'We mean to carry the position by a koo d

moved away, muttering as he went, 'They

Prof. Alexander Winchell declares, m the
Nashville American, that the abolition of the
lectureship recently filled by him is practi
cally "a dismissal from office on account of
heresy.' He goes on to say: "This heresy
consists in holding, with the great body of
scientific men, that a method ot evolution has
obtained in the history of the world, but not
in holding that m?n is tbe product ot evolu

is based is the pub'ication of my recent
pamphlet entitled Adamites and PreAdam
ites, though as a fact, a belief in the doctrine
ot evolution is not there avowed nor taught.
and the only position to which strict 'ortho

A curious duel case has just been decided
at Nuremberg. A law student, during his
compulsoiy one-year's service in the army
deemed himself insulted by the treatment he
received from a lieutenant. On concluding
his term a duel was lought and the lieu ten
ant was killed. The questions before the iury
were, whether a duel had been fought,
whether it had had a fatal result and was it
the accused who was guilty of that result?
The jury gave a verdict of "not guilty" on
all these charges. Some say the reason of
the verdict was pity for a promising young
man who had done an act which custom de
mands and the law half sanctions; others
that it was the dislike in which Prussian of
ficers are held, and, lastly, the difficulty tbat
if the officer had been in the student's place
the law, atter compelling him to fight, would
nave punished mm according to its result.

Jleets with a Hearty Reception at the
Hands ot the Nationalists of New
Yorlc Peter Cooper's Ideas.
Special to the Cincinnati Enquirer.
New York, June 26. A committee, com-
tM8ed of George W. Gibbons, Walker H
Sharpe, and E. P. Miller, representing the
National party, called upon General Thomas
Kwing, ot Uhio, at the titlh Avenue hotel,
this evening, and thanked him for hi3 oppo
sition to tne resumption act, and congratu
lated him on the defeat of the senate substi
tute bill in tbe house. By invitation from
Peter Cooper, General Ewing accompanied
the committee to Mr. Cooper's house, where
a general conversat'on ensued upon the green
back question. General Kwing asked Mr,
Cooper what ought to be done to insure a re
turn ot p.-osperity to the American people.
Mr. cooper replied that tbe time had come
when the American people would demand
the establishment of justice. Without jus
tice it would be impossible to sreure domes
tic tranquillity. The people were coming to
understand that the money found in circula
tion as a currency at the close ot the war had
become the people s money, over which the
government had lost all control except to tsx
it aa bo much property. The people will
come to see that that money was wrong! u' y
taken trom them, and converted into a na
tional debt. Justice cannot be establish 1,
and the general welfare promoted, without
the return of tbe people's money by the pur
chase of all the interest-bearing bonds of the
government, and in that way putting an end
to the national debt; by the r .yment of the
bonds now due. one billion hve hundred mil
lion dollars of currency would be put into
-circulation, which would flow into all the
channels of business like new blood to rein-
vigorate the whole commercial body.
Ben Butler Wants to impeach a High
W nicer.
Washington correspondence Globe-Demo
crat, 27th: General Butler, in the Potter com
mittee to-day, m closing the examination of
Pitkin, opened a new field of investigation,
and wnich, if followed aa he intends, to its
natural conclusion, will lead to more impor
tant results than the alleged fraud in the
declaration of the vot38 of Louisiana and
Florida. Butler is determined to probe to
the bottom the action and means employed
through the Louisiana commission to effect
the overthrow of the Packard and tne instal
lation of the Nicholls government. Butler
expects to prove by the most credible wit
nesses that money was used to induce mem
bers cf the Packard to join the Nicholls leg
islature, snd that promises were held out by
Harlan, M'Veigh and others, who said that
they spoke bv authority, that all who joined
in this effort wou'd be amply rewarded and
provided for. In this connection the remarks
of Butler to-day, when Hiscock interposed an
objection to going into thii matter, was most
sitmificant: that he wished the current facts
of histoiy in the preparation of the impeach
ment ot a high public omcer. it mis line ot
inquiry be pursued, and it seems inevitable,
the labors of the Potter committee wjII as-
fcume a seriousness far beyond that ontam
plated in the resolution.
Ben Butler's Black Bag.
Grand Rapids (Mich.) Democrat: They
do these things better in France, there most
of the females who have distinguished them
selves in politics were rather of a reticent
turn, in fact, as Talleyrand observed, they
had a great talent for silence. Their lan
guage. caed to conceal their thoughts, waa
rather scanty. Mrs. Jenks, our model lob
byist, and one who claims to have sec tne na
tion by the ears, is too much ot the opera
bourte style, bhe has bitten off more than
she can masticate. Ben Butler may be
deemed partial to plate, he may be thought
liable to loot when he enters a juered
town, be may be reported as only askiug his
price for any undertaking, but the mun is yet
to be found who will call him a fool. He has
listened, with an amused smile, to the chat
ter of that very entertaining witness, just
simply to place all she knows, and some she
don t know, on record, and then from the
productions of her own facile pen he will
enow her 6tory to be a mass of fabrication, or
corroborate sufficient of it to suit his purpose.
She, nor no one else, knows what wonders
are to be brought out yet from the cavernous
depths of Ben Butler's black bag.
Dorsey's Responsibility.
Little Rock Gazette: If Dorsey bad tacked
on to the sundry c'vil appropriation bill an
amendment providing simply for the revival
and continuation ot the commission all tnat
the people of Hot Springs were at that time
asking and praying for there would have
been no objection in the house, and conse
quently no conference committee, so far as
that measure waa concerned; and mistake,
error and omission would have then been im-
Bossible m tbe enrollment, bo the people ot
ot Springs, after all, are to thank Mr. Dor
sey alone for the misfortune and trouble that
defeated their hopes of immediate relief.
Through hia greedy, grasping, mercenary
motives and instincts in introducing a pro
vision foreign and unnecessary to tbe main
object of their wishes and desires, Dorsey
succeeded in defeating all legislation, and
upon his shoulders rests the whole responsi
bility for the failure.

Where shall yet the wanderer, Jaded,
In the grave at last recline?
In tbe south, by palm trees shaded?
Under lindens by tbe Rhine?
Shall I In some deseit steille

Shall I sleep, beyond life's peril.

Well, God's heaven will shine as brightly
There as here, aroi'nd my bed;
And the stars for death-lamps nightly
Shall be hung above my head.
Emclie Melville.
San Francisco letter to the Chicago Tribune:
Emelie Melville, the prima donna, has a hus
band and a pair ot sturdy young sons, aged
respectively three and five years, impatiently
awaiting ner, tor mis is ber home, bhe was
the favorite actress in the California theater
when she married and retired frdm the stage.
some six or seven years ago. It was only
after her retirement that she conceived the
idea of becoming a prima donna, and gave
herself up to the study of music. She did
not essay her fortune in opera at home, when
Bhe first emerged from seclusion, but went to
Australia, where she was positively the rase.
Her American reception must sometimes
seem very chilly to the little prima donna,
who was in a fair way of being spoiled in
that far country. .Her social success had
much to do with her popularity, for she has
many of the characteristics which are admired
by the English, and are thoroughly un-Ameri
can, i, me lie Melville 13 as quiet as a child
in her manners, but a perfect Amazon in her
tastes, bhe rows like a col.eifiate. swims
like a fish, walks like a pedestrian, and rides
like an English woman in a hunting-field.
A woman of this kind could never fail to be
a delight to our English cousins, who look
upon the entire American race of women as
an army of dyspeptics, who lie abed all day
and dance all night.
The Real Raldeis on the Treasury.
Tha reai raiders on the treasury are thus
indicated by the bouse committee on naval
affairs, in their report on Robeson's rascality:
'lhe committee hnd that since the close ot
tbe war of the rebellion over four hundred
million dollars in money have been expended
tor and on account ot the naval service. Ihey
find that of this sum fully one hundred and
eighty-two million dollars have been expended
during the administration of Secretary Robe
son. It is also found tbat during his admin
istration the proceeds of the sale of from forty
to fifty million dollars worth of public prop
erty, which should by law have been turned
into the treasury, have been expended in and
tor the navy department, lhe committee hnd
that every protective and prohibitive enact'
ment of law made for the security of publii
money and .public property has been disre
carded and violated. They find that, as r
result of these violations of law, excessive
prices have been paid for property which has
been bought without advertisement or com
petition; that vast amounts of public property
have been disposed ot in secret and- improper
ways, and the proceeds applied to naval ac
counts instead of being turned into the treas
ury; that great quantities of unnecessary sup
plies have been purchased; that it has met
with the evidence of irregularity, extrava
gance and fraud at every step, and that vast
urns of the public money and amounts ot
public property have been wasted, expended
and disposed of without any compensating
benehts.'
Townsend, the Bow-Street Runner.
All the Year Round: Geffrge III found
great amusement in the society and the sto
ries ot lownsend. Un bunday evenings, we
are told, the king waa to be seen promenad
ing on Windsor terrace in familiar conversa
tion with the constable, the good-humored
countenance of royalty being the while crim
soned and convulsed with laughter, tor
many years the short, thick-set figure of
Townsend was to be seen in the neighborhood
of Pall Mall and St. James's palace, now arm-in-arm
with the Duke of York, now chatting
familiarly with. Lord Sidmouth. Ueorge 111
called him "Townsend:" George IV called
him "John" plain "John ;" to the princesses
and ladies of the court, to whom he often
rendered valuable services, he was always
"Mr. Townsend." During an installation of
the Knights ot the Garter it was observed
Lthat the Duchess of Northumberland was
glad to accept the arm and the protection of
the Bow-street runner, on her way through
the mob of nobles and others, to her place in
St. George's chapel. He waa a constant at
tendant at the ancient concerts whenever they
were patronized by the royal family. The late
Henry Phillips has recorded his conversation
with the constable as he sat behind the or
chestra, swinging his short, thick legs to and
fro. Asked if he wai fond of music, Town
send replied, "No, it aiu't much in my way;
but my missis is. I can't get her away from
them organs in the streets sometimes, she's
so awful musical." "Don't you miss his ma
jesty George III very much?" "I believe
you, I do," he' replied, lifting hia hat from
hia head, a habit with him always when any
of the royal family were mentioned ; "if it
wasn't for my vocation, I'd devote the rest of
my life to his memory. Why, bless you," he
continued, "hia gracious majesty" up went
the hat again "and myself were like broth
ers. Bless you, he wouldn't go nowhere
without me. 1 keep my place because the
young chapa at Bow street has got to learn
their bminess, and the old 'una has got to
teach 'em: and the business of the State
couldn't go on without the help of them as
knows the tricks of the town."
The Duke of Beaconsfield.
London Spectator. June loth: The Berlin
correspondent ot the Standard telegraphs on
Wednesday a story ot the congress which is
worth more than a passing note. On the ar
rival of Lord Beaconsfield at the "Kaiserhof,"
he was presented, on behalt of the crown
princess, with a bouquet oi nowers, in me
center of which was a straw berry-plant
crowned with a single large btrawberry.
German courts do not pay honors of this kind
without consideration. The crown princess
is but just returned from London, and if the
story is true, it can have out one signification
that Lord Beaconsfield, if he returns suc
cessful from the congress, having made a
peace and secured some kind of scenic tri
umph, is to be made a duke. The statement,
which has been whispered about for some
time, ia not improbable in itself, for tbe court
has shown a disposition to honor the premier.
The public, whether favorable or hostile to his
policy, will not care what title he takes,
thinking juBtly that the man who made an
empress may well make a duke; and he him
self has ct late years displayed a thirst tor
social precedence and distinctions. The privy
seal gave him for a time ducal precedence,
and he will enjoy the supersession of the
class which, of all others, be scorns with the
deepest contempt the English aristocracy
the barbarians "who did not conquer the
land and who do not defend it,! wha "know
but one lancruasre and never open a book, i
There will be a certain loneliness in the pen-1
tion, too. In the history of England, since
the revolution, the Duke of Beaconsfield will
be, with one exception, the only man who
has risen by parliamentary talents alone
fron the position of a commoner to the high
est rank of the peerage. Charles Montagu,
f-:haps the greatest of parliamentary figures
efore Pitt, only died an earl, though lit
descendants are Dukes of Manchester. The
English duke, as a body, are either the de
scendants of great feudal nobles, like the
Duke of Norfolk and Northumberland, or of
kings' mistresses, like the Dukes of St. Al
bans, Richmond and Crafton, or ot great
soldiers, like tbe Dukes of Marlborough and
Wellington. The Duke of Portland, who
seems to be an exception, descends from the
favorite of a king, though a most worthy one,
rather than from an English statesman. The
other man is Sir Thomas Osborue, the Tory
Yorkshire squire who, possessing scarcely any
special! ability save that of Mr. Disraeli, the
ability for managing parliaments, rose under
Charles II., James II., and William to be
Earl of Danby. He skipped, like Lord Bea
consfield, two steps of the ladder Marquis
of Caermarthen and Duke of Leeds.
Mr.
Mact.aban's Characteristics as a
War Correspondent.
Archibald Forbes's letter in the Daily
Neics : There was about him a certain happy-go-luckiness,
which, while on occasions it ad
vantaged him, waa in certain respects bis
weak point. He was the very will-o'-the-wisp
of war correspondents. At the com
mencement of the late war he duly bought a
wagon, horsed it satisfactorily, and furnished
it with copious necessaries and some luxuries.
From the day he started from Sistova with
Gourko's column on the trans-Balkan raid
till after the September attack on Plevna, he
never once saw this wagon. "Joseph" toiled
wearily from place to place in search of his
meteor-like master, but in vain. Joseph's
stock query, "Have you seen Herr MacGahan"
became among us one of the few jokes which
brightened the gloom of a verv somber pe
riod. How Joseph's master contrived to exist
nobody can exactly tell; the younger Skobel
off, perhaps, contributed the larger share to
ward his erratic existence. He became very
lean, but always contrived to "show a gocd
front," and some streaks of hard luck never
daunted his frank, gallant cheerfulness. He
never was a man to inflict upon his readers
himself and his personal hardships and trials.
Nobody to read his letters and telegrams dur
ing the long, weary interval between the
September attack on Plevna and the final fall
of 08m.m's improvised fortress, could gather
any hint that during that period the writer
had been four times down with malarial
fever. And down where and how ? Not in
snug quarters; not even in a Bulgarian hut;
nay, not even under cover from rain and
snow. The man who was down with young
Skobeleff lay. like a doer, in a ditch. Mac-
Mahan battled with the fever in a sheltered
corner ot the trench behind the paulcment,
with soldiers standing on the banquette in
front of him, the Turkish shells and bullets
whistling over him, and the snow drizzle
dripping on him fi-n. :'v- edges of Skobe
leff's second great-ef-i.t. But the man's good
heart and even mini carried him through
everything. He had an equanimity that was
positively heroic. He never chafed; never
"grizzled," to use a homely but expressive
word. I never kue,w him even a little bit
down on his luck save once, and that was
when on a pitch-dark night, at the Danube
bridge head, his horse strayed away while he
was negotiating access to tbe bridge, and he
lost not only the beat and his meager kit,
for which he cared little, but als ) a long let
ter which he had written, and was conveying
to post at Bukarest, for which he cared much.
1 have spoken of his equanimity it was but
a phrase of his dauntless courage, that
dauntless courage which carried him on
alone through the desert of Khiva, spite of
the obstacles which are by no mans all re
counted in his wonderful book. I have seen
him under a heavy fire his fault as a corre
spondent, having a correspondent's responsi
bility, was that he habitually exposed him
self too recklessly to fire; and I have envied
him his matchless coolness. For
a man who had. never been a sol
dier, and who had made no special
study ot the art of war, his military percep
tion amounted to intuition. Let me recount
the physical hindrances under which Mac
Gahan distinguished himself so brilliantly in
the recent campaign. At Kiechenett, in the
early part of April, he broke one of the bones
ot his aukle when riding a young Cossack
horse belonging to Prince Tserteleff. When
I met him first on the platform of the rail
way station at Jass-y, he was limping along
with this ankle inclosed in a mask of plaster
of paris. He was still lame when he started
into Bulgaria with Gourko s column. At the
entrance to the Hankioj pass his horse slipped
up and fell on him, and the rider, attempting
to rise, found that one of the small bones of
the same leg was broken. Most men would
have tried to make their way back to Tirnova
and accepted the invalid condition until
mended. MacGahan got himself hoisted on
the top of an ammunition cart. Later on the
same day the ammunition cart rolled over on
him, and biuised him sorely. But he strug
gled on indomitably till Kezanlik was reached
and then had a short spell of rest. But he
was in the saddle again long ere hia broken
bone was properly set; and as a fact he never
gave it time properly to set at all. Rather
than "be out of it. he deliberately accepted
the prophesied fate of being lame for life;
and I have no doubt that he died lame. He
went through the campaign so great a crip
ple that he could not walk a mile, and when
I saw him last, sit Christmas time, the lame
ness had become chronic.
Longevity of Literary Men.
New York Times: The life of William
Cullen Bryant, prolonged until he was nearly
eighty-four, has directed attention to the fact
for it seems to be a fact that the pursuit
of Lterature is favorable to longevity. A
contrary opinion has, however, widely pre
vailed, owing, no doubt, to the earlv death of
ooeta like Chattel ton, Keats, Kirke White,
Byron and Musset. Our mot distinguished
authors are well on in years. Lowell is almost
60; Parke Godwin ia 62; Holmes is close to
69; Whittieria 70; Longfellow, 71; Calvert
("George Henry"), 75; Emerson, 75; George
Ripley, 76; Bancroft, 73; Herman Melville,
nearly 60; She'iton Mackenzie. 70; Higgin
son, 55; PartoD, 56; Walt Whitman. 59;
Lydia Maria Child. 66: Julia Ward Howe,
59; Harriet Beecher Sto we, 66, not to men
tion Gil Hamilton, who is popularly sup
posed to be 215. Among the literary Britons
are John Ruskin, in his sixtieth year; Chas.
Keac e, over 64; Wilkie Collins, 54; Robert
Browning, 66; Tennyson, 69; Carlyle, 83;
George Eliot. 58; Coventry Patmore, 65; Jaa.
Martineau, 73, and George Henry Lewes, 61;
while among the literary scientific men, Dar
win ia 69; Huxley, 53; Tyndall, 58, and Car
penter, 66. At the head of French literary
veterans ia Victor Hugo, 76; Jules Sandeau
is 67; Arsene HouBaaye?' 63; Emile Augier,
58; Cherbulicz, 56; Feuillet, 56; and most
of the Frenchmen whs have achieved a
name are from 55 to 63. Turgenieff, the Rus
sian novelist, is 60; Berthold Auerbacb, the
popular German author of Village Tales of
the Black Forest, is 66. We might go all
over Europe, and show the preservative
power of professional exercise in ink. Gen
erally authors have lived far beyond the
average in all countries, unless, as in the case
of Byron and Musset, they have grossly
abused themselves by excesses.

America Knslaad's Rival.
Jennings' letter to the New York World:
It is America which is the mot active and
most succesHf a! competitor of England in her
present markets. Then. ag.in. America not
only takes away England's foreign custom
ers, but is underselling her at her own doors
in London, Liverpool, and every larg town.
While thus cutting ber comme rcial resources
down, bhe (America) grows harvest which
no Other country is able to pro-lure, and
which England is obliged to buy. This year,
I understand, you will have a very fine har
vest. I can only say that it will be wanted
in Europe. Russia has not grown much
more grain than she wants, and the yield
here will be comparatively small. Europe
must go across tbe Atlan'ic fur what (-he
needs to make up ber deficient supply of food.
Ana men recoiiect mat it is not ior gram
only that England now comes with money m
her hand to United States ports. The sale
of American beef is simply enormous, con
sidering that when 1 left N w York in 1:76
the trade was almost, if not quite unknown.
And now we pay something like twenty iu.l
lion dollars a year for American bct-f, and the
business is constantly increasing. St that
for the "staff of life," and a large propor
tion of the meat consumed, this country must
now depend very greatly on tbe United State.
These t-e the facts draw fiom them what
conclusion you will. There is one conclusion
which I should be disposed to draw, namely,
that this slate of affairs must inevitably re
store your long-lost prosperity. It is an ill
wind that blows no one any gooJ. Foreign
capital must necessarily pour into the coun
try, making up in a large meanr f.ir tht
losses of the last few years, and infusing new
life and energy into all departments of trade.
This is as certain as that the tun will ri;e to
morrow. The recovery of trade in America
does not now depend upon accident or artifi
cial causes, but is being produced by fixed
laws for there are such things in connection
with the commercial as well aa the physical
world, although they are not by any means
what the political economiots siipnose them
to be.
American Carpets.
Scientific American: Our production of
carpets is larger than tbat of anv other coun
ty in the world. In 1875 the value of the
product was $32,376, 163. In 1872 our im
portations of carpeting amounted to nearly
6.000,CX;in 1&77 they were only $-"74,911.
In their report as to the charactei of American
carpets, the Centennial judges said: "The
proofs at the exposition ot our attainments in
this manufacture were observed with no little
surprise. It was manifest, from the absence
of rival foreign exhibitions, tbat in iesp ct to
the carpets of the cheaper snd medium qual
ities, up to the two and three-ply ingrains,
the competition is confined to our own manu
facturers. Even rival English manufacturers
generally admitted that in the production of
Jacquard Brussels, tapestries and Wiltons, -and
narrow Axminsters, we have nothing to
learn from them either in design or fabrica
tion. It ia worth remarking in this connec- "
tion that when American inventors under
took the task of devising carpet-weaving ma
chinery, the work was all done on hand-looms
by men. Now women and boys do all the
munual labor. In 1844 a man with a helper
could weave not more than aevn yards of
Bius8ela carpet iu a day. Now a ghl will
weave fifty yards in that time.
The Cumalatlve Vote.
New York Journal of Commerce: Th's re
form, strange to say, is making greater pro
gress in England than in the United States.
Agitation in its behalt seema to have died
out here. But in England it has lately en
gaged the attention of the house of com
mons, and secured a small majority for the
second reading of a bill asserting the princi
ple. The cumulative vote, in this measure,
would only be allowed in the election of al
dermen. A political minority, in any place,
would be enabled, by concentrating its
strength on one candidate, to elect him, per
haps, end thus gam a vote in the board of
aldermen, from which it is now, as a party,
excluded. The theory, as our readers are
doubtless aware, gives every voter the option
of casting one ballot tor each of a number of
candidates (say sn) on the eame ticket, or of
giving six votes to one candidate, or dividing
up that number of votes iu any way he
chooses. It is the most practicable form of
minority representation, works well in the
election of English school boards, and will
slowly come into favor, probably, under all
popular governments.
The Hot Mprlngs Commission.
Washington correspondence of the Balti
more Sun: The omission of the clause rela
tive to the Hot Springs of Arkansas from the
sundry civil bill continues to be a matter of
much comment. A Democratic member of
the conference committee on the bill expressed
to-day the belief that the omission waa de-'
signedly done, and said that he thought it
wculd end in landing Borne parties in the
penitentiary. All the members ot the con
ference committee, Democrats and Republi
cans, have united in a written request to the
President that he execute the provision as it
was agreed to by both houses, and that they
will undertake to protect him. It was said '
by the members of .the conference committee
above alluded f o that some of the old claim
ants of the Hot Springs property had been
very active all this session endeavoring to
prevent any legislation in the interest of the
government, and it was believed tbat this in
terest had something to do with the singular
omission in the enrollment of the sundry civil
bid.
The Whlppins-Post la Vircinla.
Virginia's new criminal code, writes a cor
respondent from Richmond, will beccme ope
rative on the first of July. Under it one or
more whipping-poets will be established in
each city and county in the commonwealth.
In future there will be no imprisonment lor
petit larceny, except for second offenses, and
when in the judgment of the justice or judge
the condition of a lemale offender may ren
der stripes unadvisable. The legislature de
termined on this change at the last session,
in view of the crowded condition of the pris
ons, the cost of maintaining convicts, and
the impoverishment of the commonwealth's
financial resources. The right of appeal from
the judgment of a justice to trial by jurv is,
of course, reserved. There is some division
of opinion as to the necessity for the re-etab-lishment
of the whipping-post, but the ma
jority of the people undoubtedly expect great
thi ngs from it aa an economical and crime
proventing measure.
