SHELBV COUNTY POLITICS.
Tbe political caldron in Sbelby county is
beginning to boil. There is much effervesc
ing in the Republican pot. This party has
lilted high its banner, and is strutting about
in mighty pomposity. If Tictories can be
won by inBOlence, rant and bluster, the Re
publicans have already achieved a marvelous
triumph. Often the more worthless the busi
ness, tbe louder the brass bands in th
streets, and tbe gasconade of the Republicans
is no evidence of strength. Criminals often
claim immunity from punishment on account
of the respectability of their kin, and tbe Re
publicans of Shelby county .seem to think
they gained strength -and respectability be
cause Democrats joined them in extending
the hospitality of tbe city to Grant, a man
whose nomination for a third term many ol
these Republicans oppose, and against whom
every Democrat in Sbelby county will vote in
November should he be, as he no doubt will
be, the nominee of tbe Chicago convection.
While the Republicans are fuming, vapor
ing and swaggering, the Nationals are
talking valiantly as to what they intend to
do. This little squad is small in number,
but it knows how to keep up a tremendous
racket. The Republican party never per
mits an opportunity to pass without offering
a wilful, deliberate and premeditated insult
to the Nationals, and the Nationals propose
to resent and to avenge this insult by adopt
ing' a policy which will result in the
triumph of the party that a'anders, insults
and persecutes them. While the Repub
licans are kicking the Nationals around the
county, using their faces as a spittoon, and
the Nationals are caucusing and fixing up
things to suit themselves, the Democratic
party is silent; but, like Pat'a owl, it keeps
up an "awful thinking." It may at present
be as still as the breeze, but before tbe clcs
of tbe two canvasses of this summer and fall
it will manifest itself in all the terror of the
storm. It has been said by an eminent poet
that
PiMlnns are likened best to floods and storms,
Tbe shallow murmur, while tbe deep are dumb.
The Democratic party of Shelby county is
not a party of arrant, truckling cowards to
be awed into silence by Republican bravado,
or led by a lew impatient office-seeking
Nationals. In a few weeks the Democracy
of Shelby will hold a county convention ior
the purpose of selecting delegates to the
State convention. This county convention
'will select a new Democratic executive com
mittee. In view of the many grave responsi
bilities devolving upon this committee, it
should be composed of wise and discreet
men Democrats who care more for the prin
ciples of the party than the selfish schemes of
barteting and trading office-seekers. Tbe
Nationals and the Democratic party are
nearly together on principle. They are
united in demanding reform and retrench
ment in the administration of the govern
ment, home rule and the elimination from
politics all those sectional hatreds so injuri
ous to the peace ahd prosperity ot the coun
try, and without which the Republican party
would cease to exist. The idea that the Na
tional part; ol Sbelby county, which has an
ephemeral and sporadic existence, should
nominate a ticket for the great Democratic
purly, which has an organization in ever;
county in this broad Union, is only equaled
by the impudence ot the juror who com
plained of the obstinacy of the eleven
men who wculd not agree with him.
The Nationals and the Democrats of Shelby
ought to unite, and they can nnite if they
will meet in a spirit of conciliation and con
cession, and listen to the teachings of justice
and common sense instead of the exactions of
office-seekers. A majority of the people of
Shelby county are essentially and unalterably
opposed to tun Republican party. With unity
of pu.ri.oie, harmony in tbe selection of can
didates, equal and exact justice, the haughty
crest of the defiant Radicals, who amuse
themselves in all their public meetings by
ridiculing and calumniating the National,
can be lowtred and humiliated by a crushing
defeat. But at present the opposition to the
Republican party in Shelby county is torn by
internal dissensions, rent by factious aspi
rauls, otherwise possessing all the elements
of success, will, unless such divisions and
strites give place to peace, union and har
mony, as certainly rush to its ova destruc
tion as a gallant ship, rudderless and without
pibt, will be at the mercy of the waves and
ultimately dash upon the rocks. In the
county elections for August next the Ar
rKAL will counsel with the new Demo
cratic executive committee-. But it
might as well be understood now that the
Nationals cannot dragoon the Democratic
party into its support by defiant and premv
ture action. The Democratic party is too old,
has fought too many battles, and is too for
midable in numbers to be made the tail to a
political kite, a drum-mtgor to an organiifr
tion which of itself is powerless for good
The scarred veterans who have so long fought
too battles of Democracy have long since
learned that political defeat is not always
the worst thing that can happen a political
party. Temporary defeat will tend to ulti
mate victory if the ends aimed at, and per
severed in, be high and just. Whenever a
party abandons its organization its destruc
tion is inevitable. For eighteen years the
Demooratio party has kept Radical fanaticism
at bay. It has the power and the will to
conquer the patty, which in this county,
takes a malicious delight in traducing the
Nationals, and in view of the victory which
can be achieved in November, the Shel
by county Democracy must maintain its
organisation intact. It cannot in this contest
become the tender to the National locomotive.
If we cannot always secure victory, we
can ba consoled by the reflection that we de
served it. A month's canvass previous to the
August election is long enough. 'We there
fore advise the Nationals to go s'ow. There
is no neces-ity for precipitating a canvass.
Their normal position of the organization is
in tbe Democratic party. It members are not
cravens to lick the hand which smites them,
and if they wish to defeat the Republicans,
their calumniatois and vilifiers, they will, in
stead of blindly rushing upon defeat, coun
sel with the Democracy of Shelby, which
will be just and generous. The victory
which the Nationals achieved two years ago
has been like the Dead Sea fruit, which turns
to ashes on the lips. In that contest the
Democratic party was defeated, but tbe com
bination which triumphed has bursted into
many fragments, as the frail, rotten and un
s a wort by bark falls upon tbe rocks on which
ti.e billows have tossed it; and the Nation
als, triumphant then, are not so strong as the
defeated Democracy now. The Democratic
party is imperishable. It cannot die be
cause its candidates are sometimes defeated.
Tarty spoils have nothing to do
with party principles. Demecratio prin
ciples form the only policy upon which
this country can bo made securely and per
manently prosperous. It may occasionally
be defeated, but it will recover lUelf and con
tinue to be tbe sareat stay of the people and
the country in the hour of need. The Ka
publicans can 1 defeated in Shelby count;
text August, bat to accomplish this then
mast be a union of tbe Nationals and the
Democrats, and this onion c&n be scared by
a spirit of concession and conciliation.
Myrok A. Eddt predicts as a result of
the Chicago convention that Elihu B. Wash
burne, of Illinois, will gather in the fruit
while others shake the trees. Associated
with him for the second place on the ticket
will probably be either General Joseph R.
Hawley, of Connecticut, or Stewart L. Wood
ford, of New York. Mr. Eddy also predicts
the nominations to be made by the Cincin
nati convention. He says of "Judge
Stephen J. Field, of California, that
the first place will be accroded to
him. Ex-Governor Joel Parker, of
New Jersey, or Henry B. Payne, of Ohio,
will probably diaw tbe second prize. These
nominations will cement every faction of tbe
Democracy into a band of brotherhood, and
will attract the larger portion of the inde
pendent vote. After an exciting campaign,
by a small majority, the Cincinnati ticket
will win, and its candidates be inaugurated
at the White House on the fourth day of
March next, amid tbe loud hozanas of a free
and happy people."
On Sunday last. Rev. George Chainey, of
Evansville, Indiana, solemnly '.renounced
Christianity in presence of the congregation
of his church, and declared that he would
never preach again. He no longer believes
in a personal God. He thinks that a degrada
tion of the deity, and he believes that pray
ing is a waste of precious time. The Evans
ville Journal, in its report of the renuncia
tion, states that "the conservative element of
the church have mentally, if not actually,
bidden him farewell. But there is a strong
radical element in and out of the church
which is expected to support him in his radi
calism, even though it does take him out of
Christianity. Mr. Chainey's plans for the
future are not well defined. He has received
no offer to go elsewhere; his action is purely
an independent one, and from the force of
his convictions."
General Steedman, the "U!d Chicka
mauga" of the Federal army, a staunch, true
and tried Democrat, who keeps up with the
times and is well informed as to the move
ments of both parties, gives it as his opinion
that Grant will be the next Republican nom
inee; that Blaine will not accept the second
place on tbe ticket with him; that Tilden has
no chance of receiving the Democratic nomi
nation, because he cannot unite the factions
in New York; that Thnrman will receive the
support ot Ohio in the convention; that it
would be injudicious to oppose Grant with
Hancock, because if it were made a contest
between military men, the people would fol
low the leader with the greatest prestige; and
that either Jewett or Field will be the nomi
nee of the Cincinnati convention.
What a rebuke to the bloody-shirt Radi
cals who want to employ the army at the
polls. General Grant, in the course of an
informal talk to bis fiiends and neighbors of
Centralia, Illinois, and in response to a feel
ing welcome by Rev. Mr. Green, said: "We
" have no standing army in this country, and
" I am glad of it. I have had opportunity in
" the last three years to see much of stand
" ing armies, and I know what they are."
One of the greatest living soldier?, unbos
oming himself to his old comrades-in-arms,
told them that he was more than ever con
vinced of the danger and folly of maintain
ing a professional soldiery; the experienced
ex-President, recalling Louisiana, Florida
and South Carolina, remarked to his old
friends that he had seen enough of militaiy
government.
Walt Whitman, the poet philosopher,
whose heart embraces all human conditions,
and whose soul is elevated above passion or
prejudice, in a recent talk about Abraham
Lincoln, whose name he venerates, said: "He
belongs to these States in their entirety not
the north only.but tho south perhaps he be
longs most tenderly and devoutly to the south
of all; for there, really, is this man's birth
stock. There and thence his antecedents
stamp. Why should I not say that thence
his manifest traits hisunivers ility his can
ny, easy ways and words upon the surface
his inflexible determination and courage at
heart? Have you never realized it, my
friends, that Lincoln, though grafted on the
west, is essentially, in personnel and charac
ter, a southern contribution ?"
The London Saturday Review takes a
practical, common-sense view of the Monroe
doctrine and its recent reaffirmation by our
government. It says: "It would
cult to protect a Panama canal
American troops and ships. The
be difli
against Federal
government might find a shadow of precedent
tor its claims in the more modest pretensions
of Great Britain to the free use of the Sues
cinal. It cannot be denied that if M. de
Lsieps's scheme were accomplished, it would
b largely used for the coasting trade be
tween the Atlantic and Pacific shores of the
United States. Tho communication would be
at least as indispensable to the American
Union as the free use of the Suez canal to
the power which possesses India."
A correspondent of the Richmond Com-
monwealth, who ardently espouses the candi
d icy of Mr. Justice Field, insists that if the
Tow York Democracy is to be harmonised,
it can be best done by taking up an outside
man. In addition to this, there is no reason
why New York should always have tbe can
didate. In 1864 there was a New York can
didate. He was beaten. In 1868 there was
another Governor Seymour. He, toi, was
defeated. la 1S72 Horace Greeley was nom
inated, and again defeat followed. In 1876
there was another New Yorker Mr. Tilden.
He was elected, as we all believe, but again
the ill-luck of a New York candidate prevail'
ed, and now some people want to try New
York candidates till tbe cr ick of doom.
The Chicago Tribune, rabidly radical.
maliciously hating the soutb, feared that the
tour that Grant recently made in this section
would have the effect of opening the eyes of
the ex-President to the fact that there is no
patrext to justify Republican malevolence and
bitterness toward us, it therefore wailed a wail
to the effect that " General Grant's best and
truest friends those who believe in him and
love him for bis own sake.not because they hope
to get ofb.ee under bim disapproves wholly
of ths southern tour in which he is now en
gaged." The Tribune need not be afraid.
Grant's prejudices may have been dissipated
by his visit to the soutb, otherwise he is in
tact. He is Republican, and we remain in
iexibly Democratic.
Ths anti-third-term committee at St. Louis
claims to have assurances from over twenty
States of large and respectable delegations.
Tbe German Republicans are almost solid in
opposition to a third term, and in case of
Grant's nomination the defection of German
strength alone in Ohio, Wisconsin, Illinois,
Michigan and Indiana will certainly defeat
mm in each of those btatos. The same is
true of New York, and probably of Pennsyl
vania, it tbey are carried by Grant it will
ba by a small majority. Not alone do the
Germans oppose his election, but they will
be reinforced by a larger body ef native Re
publicans who believe a third term would
either result in a life tenure or the absolute
overthrow of the Republican party for all
time to come.
London Truth: "When a girl has received
the best education which schools can afford;
when she has learned to sing, dance, em
broider, knit; when she has a pretty face, a
taste for finery, and a desire to have a house
of her own, she soon turns restless on finding
that no eligible proposals are forthcoming
for her hand. In the nature of things, it
must needs be that the majority of girls in
the middle class are condemned to remain
single in their prime. Men cannot marry
until their prospects are well assured, ao.l
this happens to most men only when tbey r:s -bcrdariBg
oa thirty."

Washington, April 19. At last I have
reached tbe capital of my country. I hope
the northern people will givo m, a southern
born boy, credit tor calling the United States
my country. I came here as the youthful
monk, Martin Luther, went (to Rome in tbe
early part of the sixteenth century, with
great expectations. When be entered Rome,
he exclaimed: "Blessed Rome, sanctified
by tbe blood of martyrs!" After being
hre a short time, I exclaimed: - "Beautiful
Washington, damned by ths fascinations
of harlots and intrigues or politicians, in
fested with boardinghouses, and marie lively
with'congressional scandal. Luther fled from
Rome at the earliest poi-sibla moment, ex
claiming: "Adieu, Rom; let all wao would
lead a holy life depart from Rome. Every
thing is permitted at Rome, except to be an
honest man." I have ttlt that way about
Washington, but I think I will stay a while,
fight its abominations and blandishments,
and with patience seek for its brighter and
better side. I intend to test tbe question
whether it is possible for an honest and vir
tuous youth to live in Washington.
As an evidence that my intentions are
good I have refrained from presenting the
letters of inti eduction to the senators and
members of congress with wbich I was fur
nished before leaving home. 1 am religious
ly determined not to have anything to do
with doubtful characters while in the city.
Thus far I have tot visited any of tbe de
partments or bureaus where females are em
ployed, for tbe reason that I am too young to
marry and I don't expect to reach the age of
Ex-Senator Chrintiancy. I have not occupied
a seat in tbe ladies' gallery of the senate or
house of representatives because I did not
want to become the rival of licentious sena
tors. The beauty of Washington has been so
often written and spoken ot tbat it has be
come stereotyped in the minds of all reading
people, therefore I need not give my impres
sion ot it at any great length. The city of
Washington of to-day is more beautiful than
I had imagined from any description I had
ever read. Spring has draped its parks,
avenues and streets in its gayest robes
nowers and p;rtumea on every hand
tue costliest equipages whirling along
its unrivaled loadways and its side
walks filled with cultured, happy and
joyous people. Citizens ef the United States
cannot fail to have a pride in its caDital
They Bhould make it a paint to visit here; the
presence ot well-meaning constituents
would have a wholesome influence over the
nation's law-makers. Firmlv adhenncr to
my determination not to associate with any
aouotiui people, leaned on President tUyts
shortly after my arrival. I bad heard of his
good qualities, integrity, morality, meth
odism, tamperanco and love for agriculture
fairs nothing bad in these things. Wbv
should I not pay my respe.ts to so much
goodness compressed into one mortal frame,
with title ot excellency annexed? Do you
know how tckhsh a country boy feels when
be approaches city greatness? Then you
know how I felt wheu I went to the White
House. I had read two or more lives of the
President and studied the southern fiiipstinn.
I had intended to present myself as one who
baa reaa ot great men, and wbo knew inti
mately tbe political sentiments of the com
munity in which I lived. I bad been told that
he liked to talk of himeelf and the friends of bis
visitors. J was promptly accorded
interview. Can yon imagine how
was nustratea on entering tbe room
ot the President of the United States
and the childlike and bland greeting
the Ptesident gave me? My dear sir, if all
Tennessee could have witnessed that greeting
the electoral vote of that State in the future
would not be in doubt. Now, mind you, be
didn't know I was trom Tennessee at the
start; I didn't mention that oa my card, and
ne was lea to Deueve trom tbe similarity ot
my name with somebody else named that I
was trom Louisiana. After seeing me com
fortably seated he commenced talking about
returning boards, and suggested tbat they
were good things to turn the tide of elections
in troublous tinus. .. Yea. said I, but don't
you thing tbeir lrequent application would
result in the withdrawal of the ballot in our
country. He answered, that " possibly that
might be true in the contingency of the board
deciding in favor of a bad man, but you will
remember, my young friend, tbat in tne only
caBe where the action of a returmns-bonrd
has attracted the attention of the whole coun
try they decided in favor of a good man one
opposed to politicians and in favor ot civil
service reform." It was e'ear to my mind
tbat the President had given the subject ot
return ing-boards, politicians and civil-service
reform more attention than I had. I was
not desirous to continue tbe conversation on
tbat line, and made a merit of changing the
subject by saying "that the people of tnu
State felt that the returning-board of 1876
bad covered themselves with an effulgence of
political glory." I thought I saw a light
shadow ot modesty pass over bis countenance
as I timidly uttered the words. I may have
been mistaken as to the modesty, and yet I
cannot tains: be suspected me ot poking luo.
However, the Bbadow passed quickly away,
and be asked me what was my btate. I an
swered Tennessee. At the mention of that
name he arose and grasped my hand. Then
1 realized that there was something in a habi
tatinn and poetry in the name of my faabita
tion; then it was tbat I wanted all Tennessee
to see the benignity of bis countenance. He
said: "Xoung man, 1 look on jou with favor,
and you may nope tor future reward. Ten
nesBee is now nud ever has been the home ot
great men. You are too youug to remember
Jackson, David Crockett. Felix Grundv. Pjlk.
Jjhn Bell, James C. Jones, and many others
oi ineir day. mere is one ot the present day
whose name has become identified with great
ness and statesmanship, and one in whom
you. as a Tennessean. must feel vre-.it rnd "
Tbe surpassing mystery of that statement
caused me to ask witb much earnestness:
"Pray, sir, who is it of whom you speak?"
Knowing the surprise be had in store tor me,
be looked exultant, hesitated j jst enough to
make me nervous for the at swer, when he
spoae out: "ney David M. b.ey, tne soldier,
scholar, senator and t t master general.
That man," said he. "has done more to aid
Republicanism ano sustain my ad ministration
than any man in my cabinet. His enlarged
views in tbe administration of the delicate
duties ot his department command the re
fcpect of congress in a manner such as none
ot bis predecessors ever ecjoyed. I knew his
sterling worth when I invited him to a place
in my cabinet. I knew that the late lamented
senator Morton strongly desired the patron
age of the postoffioe department. The
man he urged for the place, I was assured,
was a man of very small caliber, and
would be entirely satisfied with a
subordinate place, even to a clerkthiD.
bis sole ambition being to get his name in a
newspaper as a tail to the kite of some one
who gloried in giving a free lunch or an in
discriminate reception. I bad to oblige
Morton by giving bis name considerable
space, but 1 knew Key would bold a tight
rein." I ventured to suggest tbat there had
been a little scandal about the administration
of the postoffice department recently. "Yes,
said the President, "tbat was a little of the
strategy of JLey to demonstrate the confi
dence congress had in his executive ability,
and I think he did well. It has had tho ten
dency to bring his name prominently forward
as a candidate for the Yice-Presidency, and
tbat, too, on the ticket witb the great world
renowned hero." So faying, he picked up a
newspaper lying on tbe table and pointed
me to tbe following parnprapa:
Tbe movement to bare P atmater-aeneral Key
go on lbs ticket ior Vice-President mm t.neial
terant is said to be tbe result ot a desire expressed
lr tbe latter to have a soutbern man on the ticket
Tbe inimater general says be is entirely Ignorant
ot tbe movement, but ls not jnt lndictUHi mat be
viouia aeciine to accept me cauuiUiicj u onered him.
I asked the President why General Grant
did not invite Don Carlos Bueli, who lives in
Kentucky, therefra a southern man, to take
tbe second place on tbe ticket. JJuell, 1 said,
stood pretty close up ' to the fortunes
of Grant at Shiloh on tbe sevecth of
April, 1S62. and saved the military adminis-
tra'ionot Grant on tbat field from utter dis
comfiture, it Dot annihilation, while General
David M. Key was with signal, if not suc
cessful, ability helping in the discomfiting
and annihilating business." Toe President
lowered his voice, and said to me rather con
fidentially that "tbe great danger was tbat
the ODDosition mieht place Conkhng at the
head of tbeir ticket and thereby rout Grant,
Blaine, Sherman, and all other Republican
candidates. Grant's selection of key is to
head off just such an impending calamity.
I could not conceal my surprise at such a
suggestion from so astute an observer of po
litical events as the President. He noticed it,
and continued by saying: ''You must not be
surprised at anything connected with a Presi
dential election io the United States. This
is a period ot surprises. Ail candidates for
the office are surprised tbat t: ey are r garded
as candidates; tbe nominees are morn than
suptissd. The elected man is an lta, rove
mest oa a surprise, ncd tbe Bate!; icaagu
rated man laughs at the tomfoolery of fell the i
surprises. I kL0 how it is myself. I have
gone through with a'l tbe surprises; yea, I
am a surprising man."
At this point we were interrupted in our
truly social chat by the ushering In of the
oiheers of a temperance society. 1 withdrew
not, however, until the President gave me a
card ot introduction to the secretary of state,
Mr. Evarts. Tbe President exacted a prom
ise from me that I would certainly eall on
Evarts, and extended to me a further invita
tion to call and see him again. In withdraw
ing I could not but feel that I had been in
the presence and conversed with a good man.
I will avail myself of an early opportunity
to call on him again. He knows that I do
not want office or preferment at bis bands.
I have no recommendations to make. I only
want words of wisdom. He knows that he
is full of them, and to a good listener he deals
them out with a liberal hand.
I have met our congressman on the streets
several times. I used to know bim and I
thought he knew me, but then I was ap
proaching my majority and votes were
needed in tbe district. A voter in a con
gressional district and a visitor to the
capital of the United States is not
one and the same thing quite the reverse,
as one finds when he enters the city of Wash
ington during the sessions of congress. Why
is it that some members of congress cannot
act toward their constituents as if they, at
least, thought there was some higher aim in
lite than that of hunting small offices? As
for myself, I want to say at this point tbat I
havo visited Washington City to learn some
thing of the manner in which the interests of
tbe people are looked after, to know some
thing by observation of the personnel of the
servants ot tne people. My motives are good,
and such researches as I am enabled to make
shall be in the interest of the nation, regard
less of creed, party or section. I surely will
not become a bore for office. Every day
since I came I am the more satisfied that
government office, as now obtained and held,
is a sacrifice of independent manhood. I
shall, however, be grateful to all for the
courtesies that rule among gentlemen and such
information as might be given to a stranger
in a strange place. I want to have a
talk with the members of the cabinet. I
will see Evarts, inasmuch as the President has
specially commended me to him. I will give
you my views of what I see and hear here in
my crude and homely way. I will attend the
sit tin ;s of congress occasionally, and may
have something to say of greatness as seen
from the galleries. You may be prepared to
bear tbat there are very few senators or rep
resentatives wbo fill a very large place in the
public estimation here. They are said to be
quite common fellows by the good men with
whom I have had the great pleasure of asso
ciating since my arrival. Whatever I may
s-iy will be the truth of the matter as near as
it can be aimed at. cakdinai.-

jail at Decatur. Yesterday, while in jail, we
are informed Jolly admitted the murder, and
drew a diagram showing where he had buried
the remains. This diagram Willingham
made use of, going to tbe spot where Jolly
had stated tbe body was to be found. After
a diligent search bad been made with no
success, Willingham again had an interview
with Jelly, and at tbe suggestion of the mur
derer, took bim out tor the purpose of mak
ing further search for the bones of the dead
Miss Norris. Jolly at once acted as guide
and carried Willingham to a shallow ravine,
a short distance away from the house in
which Jolly lived while he was a resident of
this State and before he took his departure
for Mississippi. Pointing to a spot in tbe
ravine. Jolly said, "the body is there." The
second spade full of dirt that was turned np
brcnbtwi h it a portion of the head of a
hurnaa being and a number of teeth. This
much was sufficient to convince those who
were present that the body was there also.
The dirt was replaced and Jolly carried back
to jail, where he will remain until tbe case is
disposed of by the coutt. To-day we learn
an inquest will be held and all the leading
facts in the horrible murder lifted to the sur
face. As yet Jolly has given no reason or
excuse for having committed the crime. The
finding of the remains of Miss Norris has
created considerable excitement in the neigh
borhood. Oiher developments will be looked
forwith interest.
HB POINTS OCT THE GRAVE.
Atlanta, Ga., April 21. James Jolly,
who was brought back from Mississippi on
the charge of murdering Miss Norris, in De
Kalb county three years ago, took the officers
to the spot where she was buried. The body
was found near the surface. Jolly said his
brother-in-law. Weaver, attempted a rape on
M 6) Norris, and, in the attempt, killed her
and threatened his life if he did not help him
bury her. He now says Weaver did not do
it. Jolly is in j nl and clcsely guarded.

Atlanta Constitution: "Advices by tele
graph and ua.til received from tbe gold mine
in White county, ot wbich a description was
given yesterday, show that the yield grows
ricber and richer, and there is, of course, an
increase in the excitement. Colonel J. H.
Nicbolis, who had started borne, telegraphs
us from Mount Airy tbat the Messrs Lums
den found on Tuts iay a nugget that weighed
four hundred and forty pennyweights. This
is about one-third larger than the nugget
that was shown in Atlanta on Tuesday, and
is almost equal to toe nugget of five hundred
inJ twenty pennyweights, which was the
Urgest. ever found in Georgia. A card frcm
Mr. E. J. Storr, a reliable gentleman,
who is on the ground, says tbat the boys
have begun to count their day's work by
tbe pound, and that on Monday, only two
bands being at work, they took out twenty-
four pounds of g Id, or, to be exact, nine
hundred and forty-two pennyweights. All
of this was found in nuggets. One nugget
weighed three hundred and thirty penny
weights, anothPrseveBty-three pennyweights,
and another fifty-two pennyweights. The
others were smaller piecs, ranging from five
to forty pennyweights. Ibe day s work cn
Monday ot tbe two hands amounted to over
nine hundred dollar?, as the bullion is worth
about ninety six cents to the pennyweight.
We await with cariosity further news from
this rich mine. We have little doubt that
the Lumsdens will net a huge fortune out of

years been given to the cultivation ot turnips
and potatoes. But whatever tbey get will
be a small fortune compared to that which

West Point, April 21. The examina
tion of the cadets in reply to the formula of
questions adopted by the court was continued
this morning.
B. C. Welsh, a suBDended cadet, testified
that a student named Palmer, who was a
candidate for West Point, told him on the
second day before the Highland Falls article
appeared in th9 New York Times, that hi
(Palmer) had heard from some one in ths
village that some cadets were at the falls an!
had said that Whittaker would be "fixed. '
Palmer said he heard so from a milkman.
Witness understood, from what Palmer hid
said, that the cadets were at Ryan's place;
did not know the milkman; Palmer referred
to Cadet John B. M'Donald, who was sus
pended in 1878 tor striking Whittaker. He
answered every question in the formula in
the negative properly.
Cadet Frank B. Andrus, who had trouble
with Whittaker, in reply to a question by Mr.
Townsend, said that Whittaker had beer
"falling in" with him for six or eight weeks,
and he got tired of it, for two or three rea
sons. He spoke to Whiitaker about it. anc
told him he wished he weuld stop it. Fori
two or three times Whittaker did stop it, baft
afterward commenced again tailing in
alongside him. He spoke to him again, and
told him he would see that it was stopped.
But it did no good. The witness said he was
at the end of the official line.
Mr. Townsend Was there any place fcr
the poor toy to "fall in?"
Witness No, sir.
Mr. Townsend What do yon think ths
boy was going to do; he had to fall in some
where, didn't he?
Witness Ye, sir.
The Court Where were you born?
Witness In Michigan.
Tbe Court What State did you come here
from?
Witness Indiana.
Tue Court Did you change your place bv
"falling in" on the left, instead of the right?
Witness I told the captain that I would
like to "fall in" there; I said to another cor
poral I did not want to leave him and go to
another place in line and leave Whittaker to
close upon him, as it would be as unpleasant
to him as to me; I asked the captain to let
ns both "fall in" at another place in liie,
saying if I could not do so I would make ap
plication to be reduced to the ranks.
Mr. Townsend Who was the member of
congress trom your district?
Witness John H. Baker.
Another expert in handwriting has been

Gavlor, ot the JNew lork postomce.
It is said that the writing of "No. 8" at

General Schofield has issued the following
general order:
The major-general commanding desires to assun
tbe corps ot cadets ot bis unshaken laltb In tber
honor and lntegrl.T, and or bis appreciation ot the
manly bearing under tbe grievous wrong and Injus

committed on the sixth ot April, even If committal
by some of their number, was Justly felt as no less
an outrage upon tbe corps; jet this has been fol
lowed by even greater ln'ults and Indignities heapei
upon ail tbe cadets Indiscriminately, and througl
them upon as many respectable families and com
munities in all parts of tbe country. These wrongs
have come In many cases from sources whence Jus
tice and reasonable oonfldence were expected. Wnlle
repelling tbese false accusations witb lust Indigna

done to alL As an expression of his aooreclation ot
their character and conduct, the commanding gen
eral Is pleased to remove all restrictions heretofore
lmpostd by his orders upon tbe usual privileges of
tbe cadets.
The testimony of the different cadets
through the day revealed the tact that sever
al cadets were absent trom their rooms be
tween ten and eleven on the night of the out
rage. One was absent after eleven a short
time and another between five and six in the
morning, but tbe cause of absence was gen
erally given.
BEAUTIFUL, riUTUKES
By a mother aad, Dasgater Art Par.
tied For Fleaoare Keaalts la

Example.
A New York young lady, according to a
correspondent, from whose life all hopes ot
the pleasures of youth was shut oat by the
perpetual torments ot a curved spine, betook
herself to painting birds and blossoms, but
terflies and bits of sky earth that could be
seen frooi her city window. Her mother,
who is as sympathetic as Bhe was intellectual,
was almost withdrawn from a social circle
which she long adorned and illuminated,
to brighten the sedentary life of
her daughter. To make companion
ship complete and to establish a comraderie
of thought and pursuit, the mother took up
the brush and palette, and discovered that
her latent talent for really high art was quite
willing to be developed. And so they paint
ed pictures together, these two sweet sad
women, and they presented them to their
friends, and it was through these beautiful
gifts that an appreciative world found them
out and brought the fruits of their artistic
bands into public litfht. By-and-by Tiffany
sent an ambassador to beg a favor of them.
They were implored to paint a screen for him,
just as a favor, and with the courtesy of gen
tlewomen they complied with his wish. Af
terward something else was craved, and
now Tiffany wants everything that they
can furnish him, Their circumstances in
life do not make generous compensation for
their pictures as welcome to them as they
would be if hunger stood waitieg outside
their handsome doors; but tbey remember
Angelica Kauffman and Rosa Bonheur, and
a'cupt tbe good their pictures bring, both in
pleasure and in fortune. Tbese two women
are mentioned because the sorrow and sweet
ness of their lives have not only been made
tolerable to themselves, but even beautiful,
by their tender devotion to genuine art, and
to teach each otter at the same time. Tbey
produce pictures in that sick chamber the
like of which are painted nowhere in New
York.

Degradation.
Salt Lake A nti-Polygamy Standard: The
following was related by the wife of a noted
United States explorer to a Gentile lady of
this city, who will vouch for its genuineness':
"While traveling in southern Utah we came
to a small settlement, where we were de
tained for a day or two by inclement weather.
We found shelter in the humble but neat and
hospitable home ot a monogamiBt saint,
whose family hated polygamy, and through
whose influence we were permitted a glance
at some of the beastliness that characterizes
the peculiar institution. Only a short dis
tance from the dwelling of my friendly en
tertainers there stood a miserable adobe hut
(I could not conscientiously call it a house),
where lived a saint with three wives,
all of whom bad families. My
hostess made some neighborly er
rand an excuse for paying them a visit, and
permitted me to accompany her; but before
going she made me acquainted with the rela
tionship existing between the three women,
wbo were living with and had borne children
to the same man. Tbe first and second wo
men were sisters. The latter bad been a
widow with one child when she married bcr
sister's husband. Wben this child had
grown to be sixteen years old her stepfather
bad also married her, but after a few months
she left and was sealed to another man as
plural wife, by whom she had two children.
Then he died and she returned to her first
husband, bringing her children with her,
tbe eldest of whom at the time I am speak
ing of was a girl about titteen years old, and
my in'oimaot stated for a fact that the eld
wretch had thoughts of marrying her too.
When we entered the hut the scene that met
my eyes totally beggars description. Im
agine one low, smoky, filthy roDm serving
as living-room and sleeping apartment tor
three women and their offspring; lima of
the latter almcs1. grown up, the irj:rity,
however, almost being little children. 1 could
never have dreamed ct such dirt, rags and
rqualor existing in a christian country. I bad
seen nothing equal to it even among the
Digger Indians; in fact, the latter were quite
civiisted in comparison. But the worst of
my story is yet to come. The girl of whom
my hostess had spoken as a probable bride of
her grandfather was sitting in a corner sob
bing and crying, Upon inquiring the cause
of her distress we were told quite frankly that
her grandfather had given her a severe cas
tigation for speaking disrespectfully about
polygamy and declaring that she would
never becuii- the wife ol her mothers 'a and
grandmother's husband. When we left I
could cct restrain 107 indignitiOD, :d I
raid 1 'What s lorely relifc-iea tiui a to &ak
such beasts out -f human creatures!' 'It
is not religion, but tbe lack of it tbat
makes there beasts,' quietly nj i lined my
hostess, an you will find many cases as bad
as this one if you travel far in Utah.' Bat
the sequel 19 still more horrible. About a
jear atterward we had occasion to pasi again
ttrougb that particular settlement, and for a
dry were the guests of our former hostesss.
See told me that the young girl was really
valed so her grandfather, being literally
forced :ntoit by her own mother and grand
mother under circumstances so revolting that
delic&sy forbids me from repeating them even
to one of my own sex. Even in that' polyga
mic community tbe excitement was so great
that talk was bad of lynching the degraded
trio the man and the two elder women
but the Ireling soon passed over, and was
eventually forgotten or only remembered as
an epiBoie of this peculiar religion."

Feet in tne Presence ef

Ilotaer.
Philadelphia Times, 16th: "At the after
noon performance of the circus yesterday,
while the audience were breathlessly watch
ing the feats ot the wonderful Davene family.
consisting of one man and three women, who
were going t a rough the r dsr.nz trapeze acts
above the London ring. Miss Lacy Davene,
who had just launched herself trom a pedes
tal nearly twenty feet high to make a swing
ing leap and be caught in the arms of hrr
father, wbo bung head downward htty leet
away, was seen to quit her hold on the bar
of the flying trapeze and fall with a sicken
ening thud to the ground below. Men
groaned ard women shrieked aud hid their
faces. For an instant the poor girl lay
stretched out upon the ground like one
dead, Bava for a slight tremor of her
limbs. It was only for an instant, and then
a stalwart athlete gathered her in his arms as
be might a baby and ran with her all limp
and senseless into the adjoining tent from
wh-.ch the performers enter the ring. ' My
God, my child, my child! Let me down,'
came a cry from the lips ot a woman in
flashy tights and blonde wig who hung from
a high trapeze by her feet, and who in turn
held by his feet Davene, who was to have
caught the girl if the leap had been success
fully performed. The woman forgot that she
was 9 circus performer and that ten thousand
eyes were upon ber, and only remembered
taat ehe was a mother. Davene dropped to
the ground and his wife freed herself in an
incredibly short time and followed him, and
both almost flew after the swift gymnast who
carried tbe bleeding girl nut of tbe sight of
the horrihed audience, ibree physicians lelt
tbeir places in the audience and disappeared
behind tbe curtain which bung in tbe passage
way through which poor Lucy Davene had
been carried. All this occupied but a few
seconds, and the audience had scarcely time
to comprehend what had occurred before
word came ont 'she. is all right,' and in a
minute more Fish and Melville were whirling
around the rings in their lightning bareback
acts, in friendly rivalry, and the performance
went on as though nothing had occurred, so
far as the audience couid see. 1 be doctors
said that her skull wa not fractured, but tbat
it was imnoisible to tell what internal or spinal
injuries she mieht have sustained. At one
time she Bhowed some symptoms of concus
sion of the spine. They said last night that
they believed she would recover and without
sustaining any permanent injuries, but Dr.
Muhlenberg said that spinal iciuries eften
did not develop themselves until sometime
after they occurred.
SIXGUJLAJU EXPERIMENT.
Dnnstmaler Tests the Aeearaey of Ja-
tser's Theory that the foal of Hen
and Animals Is to be SJonaht
In the Odor they Ex bale.
London Sfedical Eecord: "The Berlin
Gegemcart, of November 15, 1879, contains a
report ot some experiments made by Dunst
maier to test the accuracy of Jager's theory
tbat the eoul of every man and animal is to be
sought tor in tbe characteristic odor exhaled
in each case. Duustmaier, who unites in his
own person the physiologist and metaphysi
cian, was, nntil these experiments convinced
him of his error, an outspoken opponent of
Jager's views. He is now, however, an en
thusiastic convert. Danstmaier's method
was no doubt suggested to him by his famil
iarity with experimental science. He con
sidered that light and the soul if the soul is
the odor and both radiated, and that light
can be, as it were, collected and fixed by a
photographic plate coated with iodide of sil
ver. What body, now, is as sensible to odors
as iodide of silver is to light? In the center
of the laboratory a cage containing twenty
bares was placed, and a dog wai admitted to
the room. He at once made violent efi'jrts
to get at the hares, wbich, of course, in their
terror, rushed to and fro in the cae. After
two hours of this torture the dog was killed,
the nerves of smell and the mucous mem
brane of the nose removed and rubbed no in
a . mortar with glycerine and water. The
twenty hares had been exhaling their souls
for two hours, and the dog, during all his
panting and sniffing, inhaling them for the
same length of time. The glycerine might
be expected, then, to contain a cer
tain quantity ot the soul of tbe hare,
the fmain characteristic of which is of
course timidity. That this was the fact the
following experiments seemed to prove: A
few drops ot the extract were administered to
a cat; Bhe ran away from some mice instead
of pouncing upon them. By the subcutaneous
injection of only two cubic centimetres a
large mastiff was rendered so cowardly that
be slunk away trom tbe cat. By a similar
experiment, in which, however, a young lion
in a menagerie played the part ot the hare,
Duustmaier succeeded in isolating the soul
substance of courage and in transmitting it
to other animals. Still more interesting ex
periments showed clearly that tbese 'psy
chotypic' glycerine extracts had a decided
effect on the human species. Thus, after
swallowing a email dose of psychotypic
timidity, DunBtmaier had not the courage to
believe in his own great discovery. This ef
fect soon passed off, however."

St. Louis, April 21. The Times' dis
patch from Marshfield says a number of the
killed has been buried without identification,
and as no record is kept it is impossible to
obtain an accurate list of the dead. The
citizens have organized into committees fur
various purposes, witb E. M. Barnes as treas
urer. A relief committee, with J.W.Thomp
son as superintendent and J. R. Hudnal cor
responding secretary, has also been formed.
Telegrams offering assistance have been re
ceived from Chicago, Philadelphia, St. Louis,
Oswego and Columbus, Kansas. One hun
dred and twelve residences were destroyed,
besides numerous outbuildings. The loss on
buildings is estimated at 300,000; on busi
ness houses, (90,000, covered by fire policies
amounting to $17,000 in the Springfield of
Massachusetts, Lycoming of New York, Un
derwriters and rtceaix ot Hartford.
A report comes trom rant her valley, fifteen
miles from Marshfield, ot seven persons
killed by tbe storm. Numerous deaths are
also reported from Green county and from
Henderson. Latent advices from Texas coun
ty, Missouri, say that the town of Licking
was entirely destroyed, excepting three
houses, by Sunday night's storm; three hun
dred persons arc homeltes; one life was lost
and seventeen persons wounded, five ot tbem
seriously) the damage done was fully fitty
thousand dollars. The tornado did immense
injury to all kinds of property in the county.
Dispatches just received say that the storm
of Sunday was very severe in Morgan county,
its track being strewn with demolished
houses, barns and other farm property. The
little town ot Barnettsvillo was torn nearly
to pieces, and several persons killed and
wounded. The names of the ki led have
already been telegraphed.
It is estimated that in Webster county, of
which Marshfield is the county seat, fully one
hundred people nave been killed and over
two hundred wounded. Among the killed in
the county are John Rose and daughter,
Richard Hale, John Carsons, wife and two
children, and three members ot the Scott
family. The loss to property in the county
is estimated at one million dollars.
THE WOBST EVER KNOWN.
The tornado of Sunday last seems to have
extended over a much greater breadth of
country and was more deadly and devasta
ting in its effects than any storm that has
occurred in the west for years. Reports show
that it dealt death and destruction not only in
half of Missouri, but raged with great fury
through the northern half of Arkansas and a
considerable part ot Kansas. At boawnee
Mission, in the latter State, a number of per
sons returning from a funeral, about three
o'clock in the afternoon, were overtaken by
the storm and took refuge in tbe shed ad
joining the large brick store of Mr. Routts
Shortly after the party had taken shelter a
part of the store was blown down npon the
shed, burying a dozen or more persons in the
ruins and very seriously lEiuring u. U. Camp
bell, Mrs. T. J. Wilson, Mcliie Brown and
Lily strong, and more or leES injuring the re
mainder of the party.

frame dwellings east of town were lifted from
tbeir foundations and torn to atoms. Many
houses are unrooted. Quite a number of col
ored people were wounded aud one child
killed. All the horses in Jennings's stable
were killed. The citizens turned out in tbe
pelting storm to care for tbe wounded and
protect property. The storm prevailed with
startling severity as far south as Johnson
county.

Probably one hundred and fifty dwellings are

funds for the lnclosura and care of it. An
additional committee has been appointed to
receive subscriptions, Messrs. S. H. Duns
comb, S. H. Lamb and B. Richmond, on
whom, we hope, our good citizens will call
and subscribe liberally. Relatives of persons
buried in the cemetery should promptly come
forward and contribute to this greatly-desired
object. There should be no further
delay by any who feel the least interested in
tha matter. The sooner the funds are raised,
the sooner the work will be commenced and
finished, as the "Old Folks" have taken
hold of this important and commendable un
dertaking with the determination of accom
plishing it. They know no such word as fail.
Tbe society has formally agreed to take
charge of the cemetery, , receiving a deed
from its present owners, at an early day,
as soon as ail the arrangements can be made.
At the meeting E. R. Belcher presented tbe
society with four very aged and yellow-looking
documents, to wbich are appended the
names of four of our prominent State officials
in tbeir own handwriting. One dated Au
gust 21, 1S34. is signed by Wm. Carroll, as
governor ot Tennessee; another dated April
28, 1S37, by Newton Cannon as governor;
another July 31, 1841, by James K. Polk as
governor; and the last September 22, 1343,by
James C. Jones as governor. To tbe elderly
citizens of Tennessee those memorable names
excite feelings ot the warmest patriotism and
State pride, tor wbat Tennessean, no matter
what may be his present party affiliation, but
cherishes the memory of these great and
good men of the past.
DESTRUCTIVE 1SAIN-STORH
Walls aad Houses Undermined
Brldces Washed Awiy-A Raft of
Timber Iiaat Sorchweetera
Watches Plooded.
Natchez, Miss., April 13. The heavy
and destructive rain which fell in this city on
Thursday night last seems from all accounts
to have been general throughout this and ad
joining counties; and from tbe amount of
damage done in this city by the rush of
waters we may expect to hear of still greater
losses in many portions ot tbe country. In
this city the sewer wall was under
mined, causing a cave of some fifteen
or twenty feet; and so great was the
current in that aqueduct that not a vestige
of the bricks was to be found after the waters
had subsided. The streets in many portions
of the city were badly washed, and the cov
ering to the sewer at the iutersection of Mad
ison street and Cemetery road, was raised
from its foundation and left in an unsafe con
dition. The foundation of the new Tudoree
building, on Franklin street.was undermined,
causing the newly erected wall on the west
side ot the building to fall, thereby entailing
serious loss on the contractor engaged on tha
work. The public cistern being dug on Jeffer
son street, having an average depth of about
twelve feet. was filled to the brim with water,
and it is reported that several bridges in dif
ferent parts of the county were badly dam
aged, among wbich is tbe bridge over St.
Catherine's creek, cn the L'berty road, one
Cl tbe support si which is reported wbei
away, b4 the entire eti'tiuure left M ft
sbaky and dangerous condition. The
cellar, or foundation, of tbe o'd Ba
ker prjperty, adjoining the . jdatcnez
cotton mills, was filled with water, which
found its way from there to the engine-room
of the mills, flooding it and causing a stop
page ot these works. A large raft 01 cypress
timber, moored at tbe mouth of Cole's creek,
some twenty miles above the city, was broken
loose by tbe force of the current in that stream
and washed away, but ws are glad to state
that tbe greater part ot it was saved at tbis
point yesterday by the timely assistance of the
steam-tug Joseph B. O'Brien. The entire
northwestern part of the city is said to have
been flooded to the depth of at least eighteen
inches, tbe capacity of the sewer not being
sufficieLt to carry off tbe immense quantity
of water which fell, and it is to be hoped the
importance of enlarging this aqueduct will be
looked into by those in charge of the public
welfare.

M0BKRI1T, Mo., April 21. Between eleven

time ago, and took them to the railroad
trestle, about three miles from town, when
they hanged Mitchell and Yancey, and as
Cateon was not a party to the murder he wss
