A meeting was held here yesterday to con sult tiiou the subject of the projected rail n ad to Texan, in connection with this city. In our local columns will be found the par ticulars of the proceeding. It is pleasing to mi that, together with the eminent gentle Man from other places, a number of our most prominent and enterprising citizens were present; and who can help but hope that the citizens at large will heartily support the groat project that was discussed? This rail road means much for Memphis it means more business, fresh prosperity, new sources of wealth, extended avenues of employ ment. These bring in their train an increase in the population, and plenty of openings to -u,,rt tin in, with ample opportunities to use capiti.l to advantage. The harmony ex hibited at tiie meeting is a happy omen of future success. the wiioie sorrt ooiio to wom Never were the southern people so de termined to improve their condi tion by the introduction of machin stt ' for the cultivation of their qnriraled cotb n, rice, -mgar ami tobacco lands, and by ihe erection of more mill and the manufac ture of their own staple productions alrnowT They seem at last to Have discovered the philosopher's stone, and no mind! can picture the future of the south.

Ho that wUlle w, ; discharge every obligation thatabsMKa 3 good, patriotic citiacm of our great and growing republic, we may follow, the good I advice proffered us aad greatly enhance J our own condition ry mating our mates the richest manufacturing and agricultural region in the world. The people of the north and east insist that we have the most fertile section of country to be found on the civilized globe, and that we are capable of liecoming the'most rirosjierona of nil people. Then, why don't they let us alone, quit slan dering us, and come along and take charge of the iieoplc they spend so much time in abusing and advising? Thesouth has never seed to invite the New England or Middle Stat- - manufacturers to come and take hold of tiie land of the south and harvest it; and we are still inviting any and all of tho people of the north to come and take possession of the country, which they say in capable af producing so much wealth. They have the" money and other means, and claim a wealth of wisdom to teach us just how md what to do in the premises. Their mills, which have often been idle, 'might easily be transferred to the many delightful and ro mantic valleys of tho mild and genial south. There is really no need for the " lords of the I'wrn" remaining away from the "sunny oaakj" continuing their dunuueiations of the people, when they might with so much property have gone thither and helped to make the reforms they have been constantly pointing out for several generations. Now, however, it seems that the south, after long years of waiting, has taken a start in the march of improvement that is surprising to the whole country. It.has increased in popula tion within the last decade so much that its representation in congress, according to the return of the census, will he much greater than it is. Before the late Presidential elec tion the south was represented as the abode of poverty and inhabited by a people who were lapsing into barbarism. These slanders having subserved their purpose, the south is suddenly transformed into a land flowing with milk and honey. We take the following extract from the Iloston HeniUI, the leading Republican paper of the east: Itefnrc the Isle census was taken the wisest among us gave out that when coiupleted It would show such enormous losses of population in the south, such enormous gaiu.i in the west, and such moderate italic tn the east, as to deprive tiie south ogress or mi I of the censii make no war on larneld, social eiiualitv of negroe oppose the Kepublieau party the bloody-shirt will lie again unfurled and tho work of vilification renewal. We, therefore, be lieve that while the people of the south should look to their material interests, and make no factious war on Garfield, they have nothing to gain by entering into a discrcdita ide alliance with the Republican party. The Iiemocratic party has always been conserva tive, strictly adhering to the law and consti tution, honest and impartial in its administra tion of the government, anil never yielding to sectional hate or prejudice for any partisan advantage. Possibly many southern people will now take a stilish view of the situation; but in the end they will discover that their true interest consists in adhering to principle. This is the inspiration that has upheld Democracy through every reverse and made it coeval with our form of govern ment. It is only a question of time when the Democratic party will return to power. Its recent defeat is largely due to the busi ness condition of the conntry. Timid capi tal feared "a change" when there was no cause for fear. If the Democratic party had gone into power on a tidal wave of popular ity, business would have been increased and bettered, confidence improved, and labor more equitably rewarded than under Repub lican rule, Of which the south has had ample experierce.

Morgan, have n-siwrt a circular aetlressed to the bondhold : h , 1 -r- bonrls, dtod New York, Novem ber 24th. The committee congratulate their .1 itucnts upon the fact that the result of th Fennc-we election was so far in favor of maintaining the credit of the State that about eighty out of a hundred members elected to the next legislature are in favor of restoring that credit. The prosperity and progrdis of the Slate are also matters of con gratulation, as they favor the disposition of the nuC'uk- to effort a settlement of the debt. As an instance of prosperity, the railroad What is Edison doing? is a question that has often been asked since that genius be came silent about his electric light. A rival named Maxim, who claims to nave accom plished what Edison is still at work about has aroused the hero of science and we get a glimpse of what he is doing from a reporter of the New York Tribune, who, on calling at his works, found that he had been up the whole night and was keeping his people at work day and night but let the Tribune re porter tell his story : In the laboratory were burning brightly, and with almost perfect steadiness, a doz-n incandescent lamps, fur nished with the bamboo carbons shaped like a hair pin. In the machine shops a score or more 01 men were hard at work preparing the material for an experiment of consider able magnitude and importance that Mr. Edison expects to make in little more than a fortnight. Several of these men were put ting in place the parts of an immense dynamo machine of I00O horse power, with which the attempt will soon be made to operate a great number of lamps through eight miles of wire. It was the original intention of Mr. Editon to test the practica bilitv of operating on this extensive scale in August, but he was disappointed by the Phil adelphia machinists to whom he gave the contract to furnish the steam-engine for Uie dvnamo-machine. lhis machine ditlcrs from the machines heretofore used at Menlo Park, and is designed to do the work of a larsre number ol them, and to produce belter results at half the cost in plant. In the draughting-room several men were found putting the finishing touches to plans and permeations for an elaborate system 01 elec trie lighting, including the plants for a num ler of central stations to be built in the city of New York. In this system the ciiy has beeu divided into districts, and calculation have been made of the electricity that will havo to be generated for each district. The plans for the central stations have been drawn in accordance with these calculation? Mr. Edison has also bnilt a factory for lamp making, and has taught a number of boys how to blow class. At the factory it is his expectation to have lamps made for use in York when preparations to enter the field aeainst eas have beeu finally and satisfa torily made. Vacuum pumps have also been perfected to prepare the lamps for use. fcp., AN ATTACK ON TIIE MAXIM LAM I'. "Public attention in New York," said the reporter, "has recently lieen directed to the incandescent lamp of the Maxim patent. Great claims have been made for this lamp, and several scientific men have given it a strong indorsement. What do you think of the Maxim lamp?" "I have read what lias been published about that lamp," said Mr. Edison. "The claims made for it are untrue. Take, for in stance, that it is the first lamp to utilize the portions of a divided electric current. Every person familiar with the history of electric lighting knows that 1 was the first to divide the current and use the portions. That was done by the lamps I exhibited here last win ter. Examine the Maxim lamp and what do you find? A glass globe is taken, a carbon filament is bent and placed in it, the air exhausted and the lamp is sealed OBITIAKY. Aerhblnhop 1 London, November .'50.

This Republican slanderer of the south. should have been better informed before it engaged in abusing and misrepresenting the southern people. Where was the necessity for the "wisest among us" to give out that the "census would show such enormous leases in the south?" Certainly there was no necessity for the "wise among us" to talk without knowledge. But then, perhaps, the "wisest among us" did not hold such ideas of the south. It is barely possible thai there '.verts some people in the north that were not so stupid as our contemporary would make them appear. And so the "poor south' has not beeu burying its "talents in the earth," and i.'oing headlong to the d 1 quite M fast as politicians would make be lieve. No, it is not thesouth, that lias been busy minding lis own business, thai lias gone behind; nor the west either; but it is the rich east New England, and the Middle States also. This is a pity, but it is the result, perhaps, of their meddle some disposition of attending to the attain of others aud neglecting their own. Regrets will not mend matters now, but it is hoped the insulting language that is being so con tinually applied 1.1 the south will cease to some extent, at least, since the "wisest among us" have discovered their ignorance in Uie premises. The future of the south no man can predict. With the aid of emigration and capital it is likely to excel all other parts of the I'uion in the next decade, and iu twenty years hence may be found to have advanced far more rapidly than the east. The people of the east continually talk ai if the southern people were opposed to the accession of population from the northern States. There are half a million of northern people located in the south, and they are so much more prosperous than they ever were in the north, or could ever expect to be, that they cannot be ooaxed or driven from the country, with which they are delighted. The south throws open her gates to capital and immigration, and promises both a hearty reception. Is the north ready and willing to lend her a hvlp ing hand? Will the north send her capital 10 build up manufacturing industries, and open up the mineral resources in the south? Will she send her sons to turn the rich lands of the south into cultivated fields? Will she help us in our efforts to get steam ship lines to Brazil and other countries, and to get aid for the building of our levees and the improvement of the Mississippi river? If we are barbarous, come and civilise us. If you want to break the solid south, locale in our midst, and by your votes, arguments and exemplary conduct convert us, by show ing that the Kepublieau party is composed of better men and a wiser policy than the Democrats propose. The south is in a con dition to be influenced and converted by works, acts, dec.!-, because she is the chief sufferer on account of sectional hatreds. It is natural that, iu looking to Uie future, the south should give due weight to the fact that the party in isiwer has withiu iu grasp the means to push forward such materia! im provements as the south is in most urgt'iu. in . . I of to-day. Her rivers, harlsirs and ca nals, her docks and levees, her poatoffices and public buildings in fine, all those interests that come withiu the province of the Federal government, sorely need attention. WiUi favorable legislation, these matters will be eo adjusted and regulau-d as to best pro mote the interior, trade and agrieultiir and the seaboard commerce of the south. But it i evident from tkv general tone of the Republican press that the south will have no repose unleae it joins the Republicans.

These, they refused to fa nd on the terms proposed to them, believ ing they could make a lietter arrangement with even the unsecured creditom, and recent events, the committee are satisfied, justify that belief. In March, 1877, the landholders generously ottered to acquiesce in what is known as "the award of the arbitration committee," viz.: "The debt of the State of Tenneseee ought to be readjusted by the i.-sue of new bonds at the rate of sixty per cent, of the total amount of the debt and interest, the new bonds to bear interest at six per cent., payable semi annually, and the coupons for interest to be made receivable for all taxes and dues to the State." The legislature, then nearing the close of its regular session, and, afterward, when convened in extra session, was strongly urged by Governor Porter and the best por tion of the press and jieople of Tennessee to accept and confirm a settlement on this basis, as the best that would ever be offered again by the great body of creditors. Other coun pact) however, unfortunately prevailed, and the State and her creditors were left In puller. A prominent member of the arbitration committee has J lately slated that the award made in 1877, waU all the material interestsof the country MM in a state of depression, would be con sidered to-tjy as manifestly unjust to the 1 creditors, and should not, therefore, be accept- j ed now as a basis of settlement, aud in this i judgment the committee unanimously con- cur. Some of the suits against the Tennessee , railroads, in which the committee joined, were argued before Hon. S. L. Withey, in the j I'nited States circuit court, at Nashville, last , I spring. Judge Withey, in ihe latter pVt of , last .September, rendered a decision, adverse 1 to the landholders, from which the usual' j steps for an appeal to the supreme court of 'ilhe raitcd States have bee taken, and the ; eminent cooiinel employed expr -s the great est confidence in their ullimuto success. In conclusion the committee sy; "Your com. j inittee deem it important to advise you that unity of action is necessary to promote and 1 secure your interest, and to warn you against countenancing any obstructive interference with your rights by pcrsuus who are not authorized tu represent you iu ne gotiating a settlement." The New York BVM comments upon this address as fol lows: "A committee of Uie Tennessee bond holders has issued an address congratulating the bondholder.-, upon the result of the recent election ih Tennessee. Iiemocratic Tennes see, like Democratic Arkansas, has repudi ated repudiation ai the polls.

' -w - - be deceived by the peculiar shape given to the filament in the Maxim lamp; it is only done to mislead. There is nothing in the coating of carbon; it is obtained by decom jiosing a hydro-carbon a principle old in chemistry, which could only have been pat ented through ignorance in the patent office. There is nothing new in the principle of electric lighting by incandescence; lamps on that principle were made thirty yean ago. The novelty is in subdividing tbe current and utilizing the divided portions, thus pro ducing many lights of less brilliancy; and this principle of subdivision is my discov ery. I could have done six months ago what Maxim has done, had I desired to make a show. I did put my lights iu the steamer Columbia in May last, and they have been in use ever since. '"Mr. Maxim came here some months ago and spent an entire day in my laboratory and shops. He was permitted to examine every thing, and no doubt he picked up points that cost time and labor to reach, but that were not of such a nature that they could be patented, lie enticed away from me a boy of seventeen, whom I was paying five dollars a day, and has him employed now; there must have been an object in that. I have never had anything to conceal, and I make nothing secret now. I rely for protection upon the patent laws. TIub is not the time to pursue the methods of earlier ages, when manufacturers locked up their secrets and their workmen. If the laws do no protect inventors they will have to return to the methods the of Uie middle ages." "IX) you claim that the Maxim lamp in fringes your patent'.'" "Maxim has infringed three of my patents and thirteen specifications. One of the men pecuniarily interested in his lamp has ad mitted that it is nothing more than my lamp slightly modified. No doubt the display made by Maxim has a distinct object in view. I have been urged to operate my lamp iu New York, and have declined, because there is no object to lie gained. There is no stock to be sold, and 1 am not in the show busi ness." "It has lieen given out that you have lately been experimenting with bamboo carbons, and vou are exjiected to announce great re j suits'." ''I have been testing a great variety of car bons. There is nothing in the bamboo to en title it to superior consideration, except that it is very uniform in texture and has fewer j imperfections than ary material yet tried. ! The carbon of bamboo itself has no especial property to recommend it." CAlK OK THE DELAY, "Have you any objection fo stating the object of your recent and present labors?" "1 have" nothing to conceal. 1 have been working and am now working with the sole object of placing the art of electric lighting on a safe basis of commercial success. It is our purpose to compete with gas. Now, in the city of New York there are $21 ,000,000 invested in the manufacture of gas. Is it to be supposed that we can go over there, and with a mere annoucement of our inten tions, wipe out the opposition represented by that sum of money? There are many things to be considered, after a satisfactory light has been obtained, such as the cost of plant, the depreciation of plant and the in terest on plant. Everything must be got down to the last penny. For instance, in the matter ol lamps, heretolore there Has been amp such as wc re took more than two hours to make 3 single lamp It was therefore necessary to build a factory to make glass and manufacture lamps. This factory I have built and I am now teaching boys how to blow glass." "lo you regaril your lamp as satisfactory IU iU present stage of development'."' "1 fikvc nothing to complain of in that re spect. 1 liuve been wxioiis to make the ex periment of operating hundreds o lanis through eight miles of wire for some mouths. Th-' date 1 fixed for this experiment was August loth, lint 1 was disappointed iu not getting the steam engine ordered from a firm in Philadelphia and promised before that date. I have not yet received the engine, but it was positively promised me in a little more than two weeks. As 0011 as it comes I will make the attempt, and 1 have an doubt of suocess, I have been working with a view of obtaining a steady light of about sixteen caudlc power. The public way be taken at first with a light of great brilliancy, but jeople would soon become tired of such a light in their houses; it would pain the eye and make it weary. In fact, people would soon get sick of such a light and have it re moved. A moderately bright light of perfect steadiness.; is what is wanted." In a word, then, your object is to reach point ot successiui competition wan gas, New York, November 30. This evening's Bulletin says: The stringency of money in the market was the feature of Uie day in Wall street, and it was demonstrated to-day that the large private lenders of money so held the balance of power in the present expanded condition of the banks, and the present very large mercantile and speculative demand for money, that they can make rates for Loans without ever putting forth their full jiower. The large speculauve holders of stocks to day made a gallant stand, but putting forth their full power they were unable to resist a decline which ranged from 1 to o per cent., and which in cluded all the leadiug stocks except Burling ton and Qnincy, Northwestern and Beading. If restrictions are put upon speculation at all the exchanges, the legitimate trade and industries of the country will have reason to be thankful, for it will leave thefield, so far as money is concerned, more free to them. The pressure for money was shown in the foreign exchange market. The posted rates for bills on Ixmdon were reduced a full cent by the offerings of lwrrowed bankers' drafts, which had been borrowed as a means of utilizing Ixmdon capital to carry on New Y'ork speculation.

Ihe widow married again, and now lives in Schenectady as Mrs. Lyons. A recent item told of a colporteur dying in a barn at Nis kayuna with $20,000 in his pockets. He turns out to be the long-lost husband of Mrs. Lyons, It is supposed that he w andered off while insane, and that when he returned to find his wife married again, he decided not to disturb her, The money has not been claimed. The New Orleans Picayune, of Saturday, relates the following: The light streamed forth into the darkness and tog from the headlight of the locomotive ofthe outward bound freight train at the corner of Elysian rtelds and ttr-af.pen ftreets. A dark oojecl appeared to leap into tiie broad yellow band, and noise and darkness sueeeoaea as tne heavv train, propelled by two engines, rushed thundering by. A crowd of young men were standing at the corner. Several had seen the object appear and disappear in an instant, but gave the subject no further thought, and continued their conversation. The red lights on Uie rear of the train were fast disappear ing in the gloom, and qriet had been in some respects restored, when a hollow groan, appa rently from the direction of Washington square, attracted their attention. A pause ensuetl in the conversation, and all ears were eager to hear a repetitiou of the noise, but after listening awhile the conversation was renewed. Again the noise brokjfthe stillness of the night, and several of the men went into tne 1 .oil.-' station, auu iroeuriiiga lauiei 11, pi o- ceeded to search for the cause of the strange voice. With heads bent down, they walked along the track from Greatraen street and searched carefully. Just in front of the door of the Filth precinct station they espied a dark form lying still and quiet. The party approached nearer, and placing the dim light afforded by the lantern close to the ob ject, they beheld a sight which to their dy ing day none of them will forget. A man apparently about fifty years of age lay on his bock, the "dim rays showing a face pale with anguish. Casting the rays of liht down the body towards the spot where the feet should have been, they sprang back giniultanetusly, tor instead of feet their eyes encountered the white, gleaming bones as. they projected from the tiesh, and in the middle of the track, be tween the rails, lay a foot with a congress gaiter on it, mangled, torn and covered with blood, and still another with a portion of the leg adhering to il. A litter was brought out ol" the station and the bleeding form, from which dangled that ghastly leg and foot, was placed tenderly thereon. It was carried into the station and laid on the floor, and Operator Delatang at once telegraphed for a charity wagon. This was at a quarter past 8 o'clock last night. The wounded man was questioned as to his name, hut Uie only intelligible words that could be heard were Hypolite Morcnne or Marenne. His moans were ter rible to hear, aud his tortures horrible. Dr. Watkins was called in but could do nothing to alleviate the poor man's sufferings. The blood spurted from the two ghastly stumps, and with every throb of his heart the crim son tide appeared in floods. Every throb caused a twitching in the muscles of the face, which was drawn up in contortions fearful to behold. An agonizing groan accompanied each spasm, marked by efforts on the part of the suffering being to rise and see what caused the intense pain in his extremities. By main force Clerk Delatang prevented him from rising to a sitting liosture, and never did man listen more anxiously for the rum bling of the wheel- that were to bear him to health and happiness than did the clerk of tbe Fifth station foe Uie wheels of the char ity wagon, which " was to convey the muti lated being to the Charity hospital. Messengers were sent in all directions to endeavor to ascertaiu where Hypolite resi ded, lie was a tailor, this much they knew from the parched lips that opened only to emit groans and disconnected sentences in French, but all returned from the search breathless and unsuccessful. Nine o'clock sounded in the belfry overhead, still no wagon. The hands on the dial of the clock seemed to be glued to the hour and minute. Every moment a wagon would be heard, aud exclamations of "At last!" "Here it comes!" emanated from the lips of the spectators. At length the wagon came, willing hands heljied to back the vehicle up to the curbstone, and strong arms took up the litter with its bloody imrden. inc Iorm w as carrieu out, pieces us after his arrivai tfi New York, was entirely without an occupation or profession suited to his Hew position; but, at the instance of the wife of one of the above-named emi nent gentlemen, he was reminded that his musical education, which had been carried on pari passu with his university course, (in fact, he at one time played a duet with the great composer and performer, Liszt,) would guarantee to him for the moment a suitable income until a course more congenial to his literary taste should be developed. In pur suance of such a line of action, he was a music teacher in New Y'ork for two years, and afterward connected with a concert or opera company, in which he was pianist. The association of such an alliance not prov ing compatible with his innate desire for a higher sphere as wll as a more agreeable oc cupation, he left oft' hi- musical relations and accepted a position to teach in either Troy or Albany, New York, where he remained sometime, after which he removed to Ken tucky. In the latter State he had as a pupil the present bishop of Louisiana. Before and during tin; late civil war he was em ployed bv several wcalthv planters in Ixiuis- f ' ; .... .1 .1 : .. Af, laua as jirivaie niior 10 uim nous. the cessation of hostilities, he removed to Tyler, Texas, became a minister iu the Prot ectant Episcopal church, and has now ac cepted a modist parish in Mississippi. In his priestly capacity he is acknowledged to be an excellent preacher; indeed, an eminent divine, whose pulpit he occupied during an absence of that clergyman in Europe, stated that he had heard learned rejjsflsentatives of the established church, theachbishop of Cantebury and others; but none could sur pass in beauty of diction, pure eloquence, or logical analysis, the sermon that he had listened to on the Sunday previ ous to his taking pastoral charge of his par ish again, and delivered to his congregation by the Itev. Mr. E. Hamvasy. In appear ance he is much like the great chieftain of the confederete armies, B. E. Lee. In man ner he is unassuming and retiring, with but little to sav of his career, unless casually stated in the course of conversation. His wite is an American lady, aud he himself a citi zen of the I'nited States, having never takeu advantage of the proclamation issued by the emperor in ISli."?, granting pardou to all Hungarian exiles, fef the reason that he was allowed only the usufruct and not the alien ation ol the estate he inherited. It is rarely the case that one meets with a personage who has had a more checkered career. TUTTS P1L.L.S. TUTTS PfDTS! AS AN ANTI-BILIOUS MEDICINE, are mcomparablo.

If he does not furnish readers with jokes he is an idiot. If he does he. is a rattle head, taking stability. If he condemns the wrong he is a good fel low, hut larks discretion. If he lets w rong and injuries go unmentioned he is a coward. If he exposes a public man he does il to grat ify spite, is the tool of a clique, or belongs to the 'outs.' If he indulges in personalties he is a blackguard. If he does not his paper is dull and insipid." Merenutlle Hharp Practice. Daytqs, Qiug, November 28.

Prof. Vt nnor is early in the ficM with his weather predictions for the coming winter. In a private letter to the Argus, under date of Friday last, lie saiel: "Snowfalls will be very universal this season, and will extend in all probability, not only Ear to the southward in Amerii-a, but across to Kurope." The. snow fall of the ISth was marked in this reaped His predictions lor Peeatnber are as fol lows: December will, in all probablity, open with little snow, but the weather will be cloudy, threatening snowfalls. Iuring the opening days of the month ilust.with the very light mixture of snow w hich may have fallen, will be swept in .Hurries by the gusty wind. There w ill probably lc some snow from about the -1th of the month. iVith the second iiar ter of the month colder we ather will probably set in. with falls of snow. The farmers will be able to enjoy sleigh-rides in the cold ex hilarating air; but good sleighing need not be expected until after the middle of the month. There will be a spell of mild weather about the thirteenth or fourteenth. After brief interval of niihl weather, dur ing which more snow will fall, the third quarter of the month will probably see blus tering and cold weather a old snap, with heavy snow-storms and consequent good sleighing. Very cold weather may be ex pected during this quarter. The last quarter of the month will bring milder weather, but will terminate probably with heavy snow falls and stormy weather in fact, the heaviest snowfalls will lie toward the end of the month, and snow blockades may be looked for, the snow-falls extending far to the southward, possibly as far as Washing ington, with very stormy weather around Xew York aud Iloston. Mr. Vennor's latest predictions are that the coming month will be ''decidedly cold, with tremendous snow falls during the latter half and early part of January, causing destructive blockades to railroads.'' rjauc tafim tftc PREMIUM cucttj- iiot'aiicc- cotupctvKj with tfic- feabitKj ftxt-cto CoofVincj Stooca of tftc- SUL S.

He lived at Franklin, New Hampshire. Letter to the Washington Suntiay Chronicle: Before taking entire leave of Mississippi, 1 s ish so mention in the columns of the Chron icU something concerning a historical pel soli age; one who is not known generally to an American public, yet in early life engaged in a cause no less worthy of a freeman's applause than such as urged to action the frauiers of our constitution and the first defenders of our republic. He is not known, as I have said, because modesty and a shrinking from noto riety have kept him in the quiet walks of life. Poring my sojourn in rjardis, in the above-named State, I had the pleasure of meeting this unobtrusive person of whom I speak. Baron Kuier Hamvasy is a Hungar ian by birth. He was born about the year 1822, was educated at the University of l'esth. where he received the degree of doctor of philosophy. In 184s. aiter the abdication ol l' rdinand, Kraneis Joseph, then a youth, as cended the throne, dissolved the diet, and promulgated a constitutiou not decreed by the people, but owing its authority to himself. The Hungarians who are a Semitic race and entirely distinet from any branch of the Indo-European family of lan guages, hence not feeling that atlimty that generally i xists between people occupying such relations with respect to each other rose in rebellion against the emperor. They demanded a parliament, their own assess ment of their taxes, to share neither the mil itary system nor national finance with the rest of the empire. Y'et they desired to re tain a relation with the emperor a sort of "personal union." It was during Uiis revo lution that Baron Hamvasy enlisted his ef forts in behalf of his oppressed country, and, under the presidency of Kossuth, a name well known to Americans, attained the rank of III ajlsl llllll aud the appoint men! of minister o: finance. After Kossuth and the remnant ot his forces had fled into Turkey, where they were saved by the muf'i, who pointed ont to the Forte what was the teach ings of the Koran, Baron Hamvasy, who had surrendered on pondition that his life and the lives of his men should be spare), barely eacapeil, a reward In-ing put upon his head. Exiled tron his native land, he first threaded his way to Hamburg, in Germany, and theiu e, tiu London, to the I'nited States that asylum which has received so many brave and honorable men who have turned their backs upon their own beloved sunnv skies, thiir emerald isles, and fatherland. At London, Lord Palmerston met the exiles, about thirty in number and tendered them quite an ovation. In New Y'ork thev were ren ived by Messrs. Kmmett, Francis fraper and James Cordon Bennett, father of the present editor of the Hei-ald. Baron, whom we will now distinguish as Mr. Hamvasy, HOOTS A.D MIOi.S. Leadiug Shoe Store iu Southwest.
