THE COSjBjjoSm or TBK MI8EB ABLB OFFEVDKBSi. To-day all good chrisbans will attend thir churches, where they will acknowledge that they are sinners, and exen miserable sinners; that they hare erred and strayed like lost sheep; have followed the devices nnd desires of their own hearts; have offended against God's holy laws; have left undone those things which they ought to have done, and have done those things which they ought not to have done, so that there is no health in them; and they will pray, "Lord have raeey upon us miserable offenders." Thft ti rating themselves very lor in the sight of heaven, and those who thus see their own deficiencies and recognize their misdeeds should be the better, for "a knowledge of the disease is half its cure." It would be a curious thing to know what is included, in tho mind Of each wor shiper, in this confession that wrong things have been done and right things left undone. For instance, every citizen occupies a public and a private position; in the former, if in of fice, he has certain duties to perform) if out of office, ha has, among othet things, his share of the debts to pay that are officially incurred by the community cf whith he forms a part, and by the ocunay at large, of which he is a citizen. If the self-confessed sinner had willfully refused to pay for the food that each day appeared at his table, or the broad cloth in which he made his respectable ap pearance at charcb, or had eyen taken ad vantage of a creditor having forgotten to en ter in hii books a purchase the Confessing penitent had made, to evade fcajment, he would doubtless reckon these things as being among &ose he ought to have done, and proceed next day "to make an honest man of himself." But if he had evaded pay ing his share for the pavement he walks upon when in the streets, or for the salaries of the police who watch over his safety and the se curity of his property, or of the judges who administer the law, or for tho structures and improvements necessary for carrying on the public business and preocrrins the public health, order And ell-being would he in clude this evasion ot his duty to bear a share of the public burdens among the things he ought to have done? If he does include them be will, of course, amend his way after his Sunday confession, and pay his taxes m scrupulously as he pays his tailor or his baker. If he fail to do so, what does he mean when he goes to church an other Sunday and again confesses he has not done what he ought to have done? To an intelligent heathen who should from curiosi ty attend church a few Sundays, it would look as if he habitually and deliberately evaded the performance of some of his duties on purpose to bave grounds on the next Sun-1 day for again confessing that be had left un done what ha ought to do; but in that case what does he call himself a miserable sinner for? But what would the intelligent heathen think if he foubd some of these misorable sinners engaged, whenever opportunity offered, in endeavoring to prevail on other miserable - dinners of his church to join him and others in a determination never to pay the public debt, or a good prt of it, at all, and still confess ing he had dooe what he ought not to have done, and still going on in the effort to repu diate the debts fae owed in his position of citizen? And what is the motive of this in consistency? Reluctance to part with his money. - Money is not the harm, we have heard the preacher say, but the love of money. Very correct gold will lie as inno cently in the drawer as in the mine if it is permitted, but it is not. Everybody wants to get the money out of his neighbor's draw er and into his own. He does so because he loves money, and not money, but the love of money, is the mischief. Do- the . miserable sinners love money less than others? Do they toil for money and (speculate for money when they bave enough for all their needs? If they do, as it is not for need, it is because they love money, whether they have need for it or not. In this country money is the white man's god. How he bows down to those who own much of it, although it was ob tained basely! Hjwhe toils and schemes, and "ro3l8v and "rings;" how he becomes a defaulter, misappropriates what is entrusted in bis hands, "dabbles" in -stocks, when his gray hairs tell that the thousands he already has he never can unel How he sives money, denies hitmt If for it, prevaricates and re pudiates, and stints his charities, and violates justice for ill Never was God served from youth to age as the white man serves and slaves to his money-god ! Does this idolatry enter into tha Sunday confession of the miserable sinner in church who is the devotee of the money-god out of church? But is not the same duty as incumbent on those who do not join in tha Sunday confession as on those who do? It is, but christians are a "peculiar people," who do not worship false gods even when they are made of gold. In America, where is this peculiar people, who cease to acquire wealth when enough is in their treasury? Wherever they may be, that "peculiar people" are not to be discovered any more among those who every Sunday confess themselves miserable sinners, than among those who do not. These very peculiar people, if they are in the church, belong to that invisible church which "no man can find out." HOffS WITH HOHOPOUKS1 The protest against the support of the odi ous quinine monopoly was victorious, and congress, by abolishing the "protective" qui nine duty, has aided thousands of posr fami lies in the west and south to subdue the dreaded ague. So good was the measure, so happy have been the result, tbat we want "a few more of the same sort" of deeds from the public's representatives. Just now it looks as if a removal of the "protective" duty on steel rails would be a good thing for the country, and do harm to no interest ex cept that of monopoly. The "protective" duty is twenty-eight dollars a ton, an effort is making to substitute a revenue duty of ten doll ua a ton. Why is protection wanted for an article that has advanced over fifty per cent, and the crders for which are so numer ous and extensive that it will take more than twelve months to fill them all? Sa impossi ble is it for our manufactories to supply the demand, that some of the railroad managers are compelled to import rails and pay the twenty eight dollais a ton, heavy as the im position is, because their roads can no longer be run in safety without new rails. Let the reader note that after all these yeais of "protection" some of the railroads are ap proaching a dangerous condition for want of these rails, yet they cannot remedy the evil, and so promote the public safety, without paying a penalty tor that is what it amounts to of twenty-eight dollars a ton for doing o. This means that the safety of thejpublio is put in jeopardy by the law in order that the gains of the monopolist may be protected, and this means that when safety and monop oly both ask for protection it is the monopo list that gets it and the publio safety that is refused. But will not the inducements that protection holds out causa others ta enter into the manufacture of steel rails and so the liiivkeU be supplied? Not at all the monopoly is making the manufacturers so rich that it a company outside their "ring" begin business tbey take contracts at a low price and so drivu them from the business. Here Ut the reader notice that that "protec tion" djes not encourage the production of rails, tht limits it. That the protected do not require protection is proved by the fact that if they could manufacture with protec tion when the price was low, they can now manufacture without protection; and if they can jifford "io ma outsiders off" they can manufacture without protection. The same holds good ot either manufactures of iron. The txtra eighteen dollars above revenue duty now p.iying for steel rails is not paid by the raiirai!, but by the people who travel and send freight by them. Let us demand protection (or our safety, and protection from the monopolies which protection creates and perpetuates. Down with monopolies! Let them follow the monopoly of quinine. Tuk New York Htrald, which has put Conkling forward as an available Republican candidate tor the Presidency, is dealing the third-term business some hard blows.

The writer of the abive letter is one of the most intelligent and uobh men in all ttitt land. He was formerly a bishop in tho old Nebtorian church, and hence bis title, Mar (St.). He had juBt returned to his home and church alter an absence of several months, and the state of things he describes is a fair sample of the condition of the whole country from Oroomiab, iu Persia, west to the Tigris river, and south toward Mosul and Bigdad. Hundreds must die before help can possibly reach them. In the immediate vicinity of Oroomiab, a careful estimate among the christian population reveals the fact that only ten per cent, bave a year's pro visions laid in, fifteen per ceut. have provi sions for six months --twenty-five per cent, for two or three months, and the remaining half of tbe people manage to get enough to last two or three dnjs by finding a little work, or begging here and there, living from day to day. There is no help from the government. There are no liberal minded men of wealth among them, and those who have grain are hoarding it up to get a still higher price for it. All tbe civilix9d world la looking at the dis tress in Ireland and the mighty government of England is being aroused to come to the relief of her own people, but these few thou sands of christians and Moslems in Persia and Koordistan might all die of ot starvation and the world would hardly know it were it not for the American missionaries. Rev. A. N. Andrews, of the American mission, located at Mardin, is now spending five months at Mosul, opposite Nineveh, and a few hundred dollars placed in his hands by telegraph would at once reach the people for whom Mar Yoeep in this letter plead-. Rev. Ben jmin Labaree and three associates are American m:mionaries in Oroomiab., Persia, and several thousand dollars in their hands would save hundreds of lives at once. Let us give these starving people a taste ot practical cbrstiamty, which, as tbe native Dastor says, will do a hundred-fold more effectual mis sionary work than all his and his associates' preaching. vr. r. s. Tom Maeki Astferesiee. Detroit Free Press: If you hand three pe utiles to the stamp clerk at the postorfice be infers. He infers that you want a three cent stamp, and be Bhoves one at you quicker than lightning. His inference holds good oa two cents and a single penny, and be bits it ninety-nine times out of a hundred. He, however, got left yesterday. A bulky. Blow moving old woman came in with a half dc zen things to mail, and her first move was to hand him a three-cent piece. Ho retaliated with a green stump, but she shoved it back, with the remark: "Who said I wanted a three? Give me three ones." She licked them on with great csre, and then handed in three pennies. Tbe clerk this time threw out three ones, but she rejected one of them with the indignant pro test: "What are you trying to do? I want a two and a one." In due time she had licked those on as well, and then Bhe handed in tour cents. The clerk scratched his head, hesitated, and threw out a three and a one. "See here, young man, you're getting per fectly reckless!" she exclaimed as she glanced at the stamps. "I want a stamped envelope for that money." Sne got it, and the clerk made up his mind that he would catcb her on the next sale or resign his position. She posted several pack ages, and then sauntered up and laid down a penny. That could only call for a Kenny stamp, and the young man chuckled as he tore it off. "What are you giving me now," snapped the woman, as she drew herself up. "A penny stamp. "Who asked for a penny stamp?" "You put down a penny." "So 1 did. but 1 was a penny short on carrier No. 8 yesterday, and I wanted you to hand it to him.

Boston Globe: "The impressive services of the translation of a saint's relics, which have been received, duly authenticated, trom the Catacombs of Rome, at St. Mary's church, Endicott street, took place yesterday forenoon in the church. solemn high mass was celebrated.

Ecclesiastics, chapter 44, verse 14. From this the reverend father preached his sermon, in which, almost at the commencement, he beautifully pictured how from out of the shadow of one thousand years ago the relics of the martyred Eugenia were brought by the good angels of St. Mary's storied parish, as was St. Catharine's body by angels, and laid to reet on Mount Sinai. Eugenia is the martyr's proper name; the details of her lite we are not familiar with; her relics are cer tainly authentic, because justified with all the documents the Sacred congregation of rites ever gives. There is with the bones a vial of the martyr's blood. If the saint were to awake now and speak she would tell us how glad she is, amid the universal change, to find the church the same. The relics were deposited under the main altar, where the beautiful and angelio face of the young virgin martyr can be seen in its casing ot glass. The services embraced a grand Te Veum. which well spoke the joy ot tbe con gregation in being now possessed of the precious remains ot a great exemplar of re ligious fidelity at a time when the christian religion needed martyrs ana bad them.

The Ne braska board of horticulture, now in session here, among other subjects have considered the preliminary report of tbe congressional committee in favor of withdrawing all pub lic land west of the one hundredth meridian, amounting in aggregate to one hundred mil lion acres, from entry by homestead and pre emption, and giving them upon long leases to settlers. The rsa.on tot this pro posed change of policy is that the land west of the one-hundredth meridian wi 1 never be fit for farming, not even with irrigation. The board considered this allegation in the light of Nebraska's experience. The con tinual westward extension of the cultivated country and successful farming without irri gation has been opened one hundred miles west of the one-hundredth meridian. Oa m ,-tion ot Prof. Wilbur it was resolved tbat the Nebraska State horticultural society repudiate the congressional report as untrue and injurious to the State and nation, and or ders that statistics be forwarded to Wash ington in disproof of the allegation, and with a view to save this great body of west ern lands to the people of whom they are the heritage.

Liszt has at leegth become a beneficed dignitary of the Roman church, and, should rapid preferment be allotted to him, may yet live to conduct one of bis own masses with an episcopal crook instead of the conventional baton. The chapter of Albano cathedral having recently conferred upon him a vacant canoury, Cardinal Prince Hohenlohe, one ot LiszVs most intimate friends, and himself an accomplished musical dilettante, received his oaths of office and solemn declaration of ad herence to the Tridentiue cried in the Bisi Hci to which h-s new nomination attaches him and invested him with the full c.tuonical insignia. After this ceremony had been con cluded he was conducted to his stall in the choir by the t wo senior canons of Albano. High mass was then performed, the prince cardinal and the whole chapter of the cathed ral being present, and in the evening his eminence gave a epl ndid banquet in honor cf the new canon, whose health he proposed in an eloquent and humorous Latin oration. In order to inaugurate his promotion in ec clesiastical rank by a work of charity Canon Liszt has announced his intention to give a grand concert at the Villa d'Eite, ia Tivoli, tor the benefit of the poor in the sees of Albano and Tivoli, and thene fleur of Ro man society is buying up tad tickets for this unprecedented entertainment at extraordi nary prices. With a reverened canon, who is also a musical great guD, "presiding at the piano," the concert cnnot fail to yield pe cuniary results that should make its bentfi eiares comfortable for the rest of tbe brief and temperate Roman winter. Effects of Animal and Veeetable Aiaoa. It should be borne in mind that scarlet fever and dibhtberia are highly infectious diseases, and communicable from the cloth ing of those who come in contact with pa tients suffering from their efforts. A. few weeks since an employe of one of our princi pal hotels went to hi3 home suffaring from an apparently slight attack of diphtheria, from which he subsequently recovered. From him the disease was communicated to three children in the family, all of whom had it in its roost aggravated torm, and two of whom died. While the children lay sick a very estimable lady friend of the family called to see them. She, too, on returning to her home was taken down with the disease in its worst type, and in a few days succumbed to its virulence. In tbe meantime, a nurse who had attended the children from whom the lady took tbe disease, communicated it to another family of children, in which it is now doii.g its deadly work. These facts warn us that the utmost precaution should be taken, by fumigation or other-vUe, to pre vent the spread ot this ratal disorder. It is now understood by the medical pioiession generally that diphther a is, to a great ex tent, engendered by bal systems of sewer age, and tbat it is a species of tbat blood- Doisoniner which is itselt the result ot tbe action of gases caused by organic matter, both animal and vegetable, but principally the former, in a state of decay. Every householder should see to it that the prem ises which he occupies are perfectly free of sewer gas, that deadly modern agent in the production of disease. A. POEM OF MAMES.

Leeds, late chief clerk in the Itdtan office, was before thu senate select committee to ex amine into the circumstances connected with the removal of the northern Cheyennes from the Sioux reservation to the Indian territory. He said the complaint of the Indians that they were beinnjstarved at their agency was true. The Indian othce was informed by their agent of the lack of food, and Commis sioner Hayt failed to furnish tbe agent with the supplies which the treaty called for. The actual quantity of tood dealt out to each nottuern Uuejenne Icr eaen ot tbe nve wppks preceding the outbreak in September, 1378, was as follows: For the first week, twenty ounces daily; second, seventeen ounces; third, twelve ounces; fourtb, fourteen and a quarter ounces; fifth, eighteen ounces; whereas their treaty as well as their necessities demanded twentv-eient ounces daily. Mr. .Leeds also s-iid that Commissioner lLiyt's statement in his annual report for Ibis, referring to the food supply for these Indians, is deceptive in several particulars, including the following: That it states that tbe quantities wbicb were shipped and delivered to tr.e agent were the amounts which were issued to the Indians, and makes no allowances for loss and shrink age, and omits the alleged fact that for some weeks immediately preceding the outbreak the starvation ration upon which they had previously ex.sted ws further decreased by the non-delivery of ene-halt pound of Hour per diem, to which they were each entitled.

Philadelphia coirespondent of the New York Uerald: "Last Friday night Barney Macauley, who is playing Uncle Dan'l at the South Broad Street theater, and who occu pies apartments on tbe second floor of the West End hotel, was made the victim of an adroitly contrived robbery.

Dr. Jessnp, of England, Supple ments this Story. Plain City (Ohio) special to the Cincinnati Enquirer: Richard lams, jr., a jyonng man of well known integrity, attended a Metho dist Episcopal revival meeting at this place last night, and to-day tore up the neighbor hood by nn astounding narrative. lams lives one and a half miles east of town, and in coming and going usually travels the Pan Handle railroad track. A half mile this side of his home, in a lonesome-looking hollow through which creeps the murky waters of Sugar Run, is the old Djminey place, now occupied by strangers, the last family resi dent, Jasper Dominey, having died, there over two years ago. And at this point, at about eleven o'c!ock.la9t night, young lams struck a sensation. The night was cloudy and dark, and on approaching Sugar Run bridge I.tms suddenly noticed a lighted lantern, apparently held in a man's hand, about fifty feet in aavance of him. He stopped, demanded' "Who's there?" and getting no answer after twice or thrice repeating toe question, picked up a stone, with the remark: 'I) n you, I'll see who you are." But no reply to this hail came, and the light Vanished. Still armed with the stone, lams passed cautiously over the bridge, and had gone hut a short distance beyond when tbe lantern's light again ap peared, this time under a tree, some distance ia advance of him. His hair now began to bristle in bis hat, but he advanced to within about fifteen feet of the light, and distinctly saw, he now states, the form and features of his old neighbor, Jasper Dominey, holding an old-fashioned square lantern, apparently as if to, light him through the darkness, lams stood tor some time taking in the ap pearance, without daring to go nearer, and finally, eaid: "Jap, is that you?" Then the light vanished acd no answer was made. Pinching his leg-Jor assurance tbat he was himselL substantial identity of -bone and nerviis parsed on, acd on getting near home, looked back and saw the lantern in a ghostly hand glimmering acres the hollow from the old home door-yard. It was held up to the bight of a man's head, and after a time gradually sank to the earth and disap peared. After the death of Dominey, who was a well-known epiritualist, the occupants of tbe old home told marvelous stories of un earthly visitations, of the building of fires at midnight by unseen hands, the tramping of heavy feet through the chamber and garret, tbe opening and shutting of doors, the ap parent c-fcih of kitchen furniture and rasping squeaks from an bid fiddle that hung in a dark closet; and, most unendurable of all, the daiiy ennoyance of spiritual footsteps outside the house, accompanied by scraping of boots at the fetep and raps upon the door. ANOTHER GHOST 8TORT. Rev. Dr. Augustus Jessup, an eminent English antiquarian, writes to the London Athenaeum that recently, white reading late one night in a room adjoining the library of Lord Oxford, at Manmcgton hall, Norfolk, he Biw a specter. He cad several small vol umes which be was consulting and copying from, and worked by the light of four candles. Suddenly, he says, as I was actually writing, I saw a large while hand within a foot of my 'elbow. Turning my head, there sat a figure of a somewhat large man, with his back to the fire, bending slightly over the table and apparently examining the pile of books that I had been at work upon. The man's face was turned away from me, but I saw his closely-cut reddish brown bair, his ear acd shaved cheek, the eyebrow, the corner of the right eye, the side of the forehead, and the large high cheek bone. He was dressed in what 1 can only describe as a kind of ecclesiastical habit of thick-corded silk or some such material, close up to tbe throat, and a narrow rim of edging, of about an inch broad, of satin or velvet, serving as a stand ud collar, and fit ting close to the chin. The right hand, which had first attracted my attention, was clasping without any great pressure the left hand; both hands were in perlect repose, and- the large blue veins of the right hand were conspicuous. - 1 remember thinking that the hand was like tbe hand of Valas quez's magnificent "Dead Night" in the Na tional gallery. I looked at my visitor for some seconds, and was perfectly sore that he was not a reality. A thousand thoughts came crowding upon me, but not the leart feeling of alarm, or even on easiness; curios ity and a strong interest were uppermost. For an instant I felt eager to make a sketch of my friend, aod I looked at a tray on my right tor a pencil; then I thought, "Upstairs I have a sketch book-. Shall I fetch it?" There: he sat, and I was fasci nated; afraid, not of bis staying, but lest he should go. Stopping in my writing, I lifted my left hand from the paper, stretched it out to the pile of booki and moved the top one. I cannot explain wby I did this my arms passed in front of the figure, and it vanished. I was simply disappointed and nothing more. Dr. Jessup was brave and kept on writing, and a moment or two later the fizure reap peared. He tried to address it, but found he dared not speak. Again tbe ghost disap peared, and Dr. Jessup completed his task, carried the book be had used bick into tbe library and then went to bed and slept soundly. He is sure be was not-asleep. asi was very cairn tbrouahcut - A TJ5T CASE Decided by tbe I'aited States Ulatrlct Court of Philadelphia Keaponal blllty of Freighters Dur ing Blot. Philadelphia, January 23. Judge M Kinuan, in tbe United States court tor this district, this morning delivered an opinion in the case ot John Sherman Hall vs. the Penn sylvania railroad company. This is the test case tried in 1878 to fix the responsibility for loss by the Pittsburg riot. A jury was dis pensed with and tbe evidence submitted to tbe judge to ascertain tbe ftcts and apply the law. After reviewing the testimony. Judge M'Kinnan concluded his opinion as follows: "Upon the whole case I am ot the opinion, aud bo find, that tha loss complained of was caused by fire while the plaintiff's goods were in transit by tbe defendant, and within the meaning of exception in the bill ot lading; that the-defeudant is not shown to have been guilty of any negligence by which the effi ciency of the exception is in any way im paired, and henceforth the plaintiff is not entitled to recover." It was admitted at the trial tbat the plaintiff's goods were destroyed by fire during the riot, and tbe bill of lading offered in evidence contained a clause except ing the liability of the railroad company for freight lest by fire.

Drt-admi Accident. New York, January 24. At one o'clock this morning the engine of a train on the elevated railroad was thrown from the track by a misplaced switch and fell into the street, a distance of twenty-five feet. Tbe four pas senger coaches of the train remained on tbe track. The following employes were on the engine and fell with it: Edward Williams, ntAt lear fractured and head seriously in jured; John Constantino, head and face bad ly scalded; Kichard uurkwood, r.aocis j. Falkenburg, John C. Schoon and William Kimball were slightly injured. The general superintendent says the cause of the accident was too rapid running. It was against the rales to run over corves or switches at a faster soeed than six miles an hour, or to run faster than twenty-five miles an hour on a straight away track. Tbe engineer sent his train rushing up to a system of switches from the east to the west track at a rate of about thir ty miles an hour. The switches were not misplaced. ' Jewish Orlsla of the Afghan a. Tbe question has been raised by the Jewish World, of London, whether the Afghans are not ot Jewish origin. That paper asserts that the prevailing type of the Afghan phys iognomy is strongly Jewish more so than any other living race, while in their religious customs considerable analogy can be traced between them and orthodox Jews. In the case of certain branches of the Afghan peo pla this is particularly striking so much so that one writer went so far as to conclude that he had found in them the descendants of the lost tribes of Israel. All tbe native Afghan histories contain detailed accounts of the ear ly history of the Jews from Abraham down to the captivity; and although the bulk of the population was converted to Islam years and years ago, it is stated in a local history that it su not nntil the middle of the tenth century tbat Judaism was entirely ' given np and IslamiBm became the prevailing religion. The Orlgla f Speech. The theory that primitive man first at tempted speech by imitating natural sounds, or tbe cries of animals, has been adopted by M. Cainfoud, a Frenchman, who, in a small volume recently published, contends that the recollections and repetitions of those sounds caused man to give to certain natural phe nomena, and animals, and other objects their present names. His researches into the French language have brought to his notice numerous examples that confirm him in his belief, and he thinks it desirable that the Geographical society of Paris should instruct its travelers to obtain from individuals be longing to the different peoples and tribes what corroborative proof ot this theory may be furnished by woros and sounds in the va rious languages aod dialects, in tbat tbe whole vocal knowledge thus gathered may prove a great aid to tbe discovery of the ori gin of language.

J THE EXOliUS Proven to be a Mean, Contemptible Swindle by which it was Intended to Yictlmlze the Poor Negroes - - of North Carolina Both Ways A Story that is a Shame and a Disgrace to All Concerned, and to the State Governments that Permit the Fraud, Washington, January 24. Tbe senate committee on the colored exodus to-day ex amined J. P. Duke Hart, the southern passen ger agent of the Baltimore and Ohio rail road company. He testified that he tad made several visits to North Carolina in the interest of the company, to sec are as large a share as possible of the exodus travel, and that he effected arrangements with the local promoters of the movement by which the Baltimore and Ohio railroad obtained the transportation of all tbe colored people who have up to this time (since last October) em igrated from North Carolina to Indiana. Through rates trom Goldsboro to Indianapo lis for these emigrants was sixteen dollars and sixty-five cents for each person above the age of twelve years; half fare for chil dren from five to twelve years; younger chil dren free. In all of these arrangements the company agreed to pay Z. Taylor Evans, of Goldsboro, the colored man who worked np the emigration scheme, a drawback of one dollar per head for each full fare passenger, aod. fifty cents fur each half ticket sold. This was a well known standing induce ment held out by himself and the agents of competing railroads to men like Evans and Perry and Williams, to get Cp as Urge an emigration as possible. Evans told witness he commenced working np the exodus s x teen months ago by means of mass meetings, secret societies, etc Witness, while in North Carolina, had seen many of the circulars as serting tbat the colored people would find plenty of work in Indiana at wages of one to one dollar and a half. Perry and Williams also circulated a report that the emigrants upon reaching Washington would be pro vided with new clothes and transportation to Indiana or St. Louis. Tha circulars were largely made up of editorials from the Green castle (Ind.) Banner, and also included what purported to be certificates from a number of North Carolina colored people who bad aire dy gone to Indiana that tbey had found work and advised their friends to follow- Perry left the State suddenly dur ing the winter, on account of an in dictment for forging a number of school certificates, and had not returned, and that Evans and others were still at work. Witness said the exodus would continue just as long as the colored people could raise money to pay their fare, or until checked by unfavorable reports from their friends at the other end of the line. Io this event he would go out to Indiana and 'try-to secure them as passengers back over tbe Baltimore and Ohio lines. tUKhter. The number of tickets sold by tha Baltimore and Ohio railroad for tae transportation of these North Carolina emigrants since tbe movement first commenced is seven hundred and sixty-three thousand two hundred and thirty-five the whole being at half-fare rates. Ia response to questions put by Senator Windom, the witness estimated that fully one hundred to one hundred and five full fare tickets were tor women. and at least sixty-four of the remaining two hundred and s xty-four full fare tickets must have been purchased for male passengers be tween the ages of twelve and twenty years. Senator Windom thereupon remarked that it appeared that there were not more than two hundred of the emigrants who conld by any possibility vote at the next Indiana elec tion, and it seemed therefore that two hun dred immigrants had created "all this con sternation in Indiana." Senator Yoorbees Not consternation, but indignation. Senator Windom You should not be very indignant ovor two hundred men. Secat.ir Voorhees We are indignant at the fraud which is being practiced on weak people, by telling them tbat they can find plenty of employment in Indiana, when there is really no demand for their labor. H. W. Mendenhall, a resident of Wash ington, testified that he assisted in organiz ing the Emigrant aid society about a year ago; he thought the movement would be come quite extensive; he had stated that, if Indiana could offer any inducements to negro emigrants, it would be well to send them there, as they were generally Republicans, and they would strengthen the Republican party; be could not tell what degree of ap proval this movement had from his friends in Indiana; he had received a private letter from United States Marshal Dudley, of Indi ana, who said that, as a political measure, the Republican party in Indiana disclaimed any part in the measure; but, if employment conld be found for colored people in Indiana, he would be glad to see them come there; he understood from that letter that the Repub lican party leaders in Indiana would not par ticipate in the movement; with reference to his connection with tbe exodus movement from North Carolina to Indiana, the witness said tbat about October 1st he was introduced to Perry and Williams, from North Carolina. They txhibited to him a paper containing the names of one hundred and sixty-three per sons who wanted to emigrate to Kansas, He told them there were other States besides Kansas tbat they could go much cheaper and fare better, and mentioned Ohio and In diana. Perry and Williams spoke abotR the low wages in North Carolina, and said' they and their people were determined .to go somewhere. Mendenhall suggests In diana, and wrote to Judge MarUnctale, of that State. A few weeks afterward Ve re ceived a postal-card from Dr. Elliot 6, In dianapolis, to whom Jjdge Martindalehad referred Mendenhall's letter, asking him'io- send ferry and Williams. lie afterward heard a North Carolina prty had emigrated to Indiana and bad secured employment in and around Greencastle. Witness did not know of any Republican politicians in In diana engaging in the movement as a politi cal measure. From Poems by Hugh Conway. WED. White-robed she comes, my love, my own.
