Methinks I bear th voics of th blessed as they stand Singing in th sunshine in that far off, sinless land. 0 would that I wor with them, amid their shin ing throng, Mingling in their worship, joining in their song. The friends that started with me hare entered AT BEST. Verily hath a mother in Israel fallen Mrs. Elisabeth White, wife of Her. Dr. George White, long rector of Calvary church of this city, gently passed away at 4 o'clock on Friday morning. Weak and low the pulae of life had fluttered in her fevered veins for weeks and months, and her friends "thought her dying when she slept, and sleeping when he died." It may be truly said of her that Of ne distemper, of no blast ah did, Hut fell like autumn fruit that mellowed lone ltven wondered at. because aha dront no sooner. Fate seemed to wind her up for four-scor years. let freshly ran she on some winters more; Till like aelock worn nut with sating time. The wheel of weary lif at last stood still. Mrs. White was born in Charleston S. C, in 18412. Descending from one of the first families of the State, and pos casing beauty, intelligence and many accomplishments, she was a conspicuous belle, a favorite in fashionable society, and married early in lifo. Her first husband and one child died with the ycllow-fcvcr. Two years afterward she married Rev. Pr. George White, -and as two placid streams unite and roll their waters in one bright and tranquil current to the sea, so have their happy spirits been borne onward, tender an loving, through light and shade, sun : ahine and gloom. . The ' friends that cheered thoir bark as forth it steered on life' long voyage are all gone. But for sixty-two years this happy couple have been .lovers, together gazing at the evening twilight and moonlit clouds, lis tcning to the chirp ot the cricket, as tho stars flashed out in the sky, Watching their children as around the crackling fire they joyously danced to the shadows which the prism flung upon th wail, and with clasped hands talked of God, heaven and their love, so pure an holy on earth that it would brighten into a fadeless star in eternity. The tissue of their lives was so wrought as to make them twin spirits. But the harmony of life's long chord is broken and the old, sweet tune is hushed in death. A hap pior pair never trod life's weary path to gether. Tho twain wore one in taste and sentiment in mutual love and trust. United in heart and hand for more than sixty years, they lived in harmony, en deared by joy and sorrow, made closer by death and the bereavement of childrci , . uninterrupted by jar or disoord th. parting kiss as fragrant as the n;iptial salutation. Both husband and wife were prostrated for weeks, and they could not minister to each other's' wants, but th y transmitted love and sympathy, and each sigh seemed to ask : On of na, love, must stand Whsre the waves are breaking on death's dark trand. And watch 'he boat from th silent land Hear tho other avray. Which will it beT low, the bat and the night hawk may seize unquestioned upon the bug, spider, fly and mosquito, because forsooth these happen not to be the favorites of our race. But the moment a bird abstracts a cherry from his overburdened trees he is condemned as a malefactor to the for feit of his life, without judge or jury, or benefit of clergy; and we add, most em phatically, without a warrant from law j that divine law which governs man and i beasts, and birds and fishes and every creeping thing; that law which rules in this little orb: where man plays the tyrant and the bigot.

It was taught that she had no rights which a man was bound to respeot. Daugh ters were not allowed to choose even their own husbands, and were pelled to marry the men which oeoary or unprincipled fathers selected as their husbands. She com-mer-had has Natural endowments and high accom plishments made Mrs. Elizabeth White a most lovely character. Mentally she was strong, had the best culture of her day, and was eminently practical iu all the relations of life. Sound in judgment, she was a wise counselor. The Orient is iich in striking symbols, and one of them is to take the veil of a bride when she lays it aside npon her marriago day; to fold it carefully, to lay it tenderly away in a box of sandal or camphor wood ;' to keep it until the bride who wore it ceases to live, when it is brought forth and wrapped around the face of the dead. And the belief which is taught is that if the bride, as she ma tured in womanhood and motherhood, was true to her wifely trust, beneath the veil the pinched and withered and wrung face will be restored to bridal freshness and loveliness, and when her eyes shall open in the Beautiful Beyond, they will bo filled with thoir old luster, the lips will call back their earaation, and as youth and purity were on the earth, so the eternal youth will begin. The symbol means that what is beautiful and good can not be lost; that if the woman causes smiles to be born whero sorrow brooded, like the children of the gods those smiles will bo immortal; that if from weepiDg eyes sho has wiped away tears, those tears will turn to diamonds, whioh all the abrasions of time cannot make dim or wear away; that if the voioe has been lifted up iu sweet aocents for love, duty and charity, it will change to a note ot ce lestial music, the echoes of which will forever swell the grand melodies of eter nity, and that the beauties of heaven will be but V magnified splendor of the bride's deeds on earth. If this beautiful custom of the Orient were observed by our people, under the bridal Toil that wraps tho pallid brow of tho deceased tho face would grow roseate, and tnko on a oelostial light which all the darknoss of death aud all the damps of the grave cnunot extinguish, for her religion win a living sentiment and a con scious reality, and her whole life was set to the niusio of sympathy, affection, char ity and duty to husband, children and the world. To all who knew her she . reamed tne conception ot a faultless, lovely woman. .While highly gifted her spirit was of tho most feminine gentle ucss. Slio was a devoted and loving mother, maternal affection ever bub bliug from her lips. She has been grad ually giuking fr tho past six mouths, leath seemed to bo more the result of a general breaking down and wearing out ol tho vital machinery than any well de fined malady. She bore her long suffer ings with a' patienco and mcoknesa that were sublime. Her mind was occasional ly clouded, but it would soon burst forth ia all its splondsr and beauty, iler suf ferings were a whole drama of pathos, but she preserved the harmony of her lifo to the end aud entered the dark, star less night of do j tli bravely, know ing that the journey to eternal day would be Rwil't, and that the Bad wails ot1 loving husband and children would soon be lost in tho melody of heaven. The sympathy of the entire community centers around the family of the de ceased, aud it is especially lavished upon the husband, Uev. lr. George White. As the clods this morning rattle upon the grave of his lost . idol he will no doubt feel that he has been ft the funeral of all his hopes seen them entombed one by one. In youth he gave his heart to the Church, and ever sinoe it has been sweetly attuned to those lofty themes and sublime aspira tion which lift man into the spleudors that dwell above the earth and beyond the grave. Known and loved aliko for unostentatious simplicity, iotleM life and the great powers he has oonse eratcd to the highest and best interests of humanity, he will have the symiiatliies of the whole South in his great bereave mcnt. Rev. Dr. George White has lived through three generations, minis tering holy things, and his memory will I a a survive tne tomo and ever remain a living presence fragrant ' with holy incense. He lingers on the stage, tho theater of his , usefulness and his triumphs, and with the Lible in his hand, ti sacred teachings in his heart, and its sublime promises : animating and in spiring his soul, ho nobly, bravely labors . on. But, totterina; with the weight of years upon th$ prink," of tho grave, h gradually risen from the condition of slavery to be the queen of the realm, and her progress is upward and onward. She is wisely ruling the domain she has con quered. The enlightened sentiment of the age has repudiated the senseless twaddle and the stupendous falsehood which had its origin in the selfish cruelty of a barbarous era and the overweening vanity and the wicked tyranny of the lords of creation, that woman is inferior in her mental endowments to man. Woman has gradually been disenthralled from the bondage of falsehood until she is the great inspiration if not the superior of man. Much tinseled rheto ric aud imposing declamation have been expended for oenturies past upon the distinct mission of woman. But after all experience has demonstrated that it is education and circumstances that fix tho mental developments of man and woman alike. Schoolgirls learn so much more rapidly than boys that Vassar Col lege has suggested a mixed school with the view of spurring 'the boys to more earnest culture, refinement and develop ment of the inner life. As the magnolia lives with her feet among the green soum and water snakes, and perfumes the tainted swamps with her sweet breath, so has woman lived through degradation lift ing her beaming face forever toward tho stars until she stands proudly erect, the equal of man intellectually and in the enjoyment of her inalienable rights. But some men still think they are mas- t ters and women slaves to be flogged at pleasure. A few days since a father at Pittsburg, Pa., familiar with woman's former degradation and oblivions to- her emancipation, severely chastised his eighteen-year-old daughter. The Pitts burg Ledger comuented on this outrage, and this disgruntled lather confesses the truth of the charge and baldly justi fies his conduct on the ground that he has the right to discipline his family as he pleases, and that it is an impertinent intermeddling in his private affairs for n newspaper to comment on his flogging whenever he saw proper any member ot his family. This barbariau is jusft 100 years behind the times. The corpora! ohastisement of a child will bo endured by the public. There are extremists, however, who hold that a parent has no moral right to inflict corporal punish ment on his child at any age; that the extent of his rights in this direction is no greater than that which the State exerts over all the people that is they shall be permitted to do as they please so long as they do not interfere with the rights of others, and that even when interference must be made it is better to do so in the way of restraining. But, while the publio will tolerate the whip ping of a ehild, when such punishment is inflicted on a young lady of eighteen, twenty or older, it thinks it is about time to interfere; let it be looked upon as im pertinent or not, the publio will put its ban of dissent on the proceeding.. And this sentiment is a growing one; this de termination to impertinently interfere is steadily beooming stronger in the more civilized communities of the world. The spirit which moves tho publio to inter fere iu such cases as this is the same which moves them to interfere with the private matter of a man thrashing his wife ; yet, whenever the publio aud the newspapers hear of cases of the latter class of family discipline, they always step in and call a halt. Those fathers who think their wives and grown daugh ters are a species of private property to be lashed and cuffed like spaniels are mistaken as to the age in which they live. Negro slaves were onco private prop erty whioh the owners trotted as the Pittsburg father treats his family, by flogging them for the mere pleasure of seeing them writho in pain. But the negro is free, and the lash which has been lifted lrom tho backs of slaves can not be applied to the backs of wives and daughters. This is an ago of humanity. Kindness, mercy and tenderness have sweetened tho life of everything subject to pain. Why, those who imagine that they have an inalienable right to inflict brutal punishmeut on their wives and daughters should remember that they cannot even beat their dogs, their mules and horses. An impertinent publio now interferes with parents in their chastise ment of their own little children. The Humane Society will not tolerate cruelty to children, and many are the oases where it has put forth its restraining hand in tho interest of the suffering young humanity. When there has been such a steady growth of public sentiment in this reaped during the present "cen tury, is it any wonder that poo- plo are shocked, and the news papers take cognizance of tho case when they hear of an eighteen -year-old girl being whipped, even though "she deserved it.' The humane spirit of the age has even extended to. the pro tection of birds. " There is a growing belief that every living creature that flies in the air or walks and crawls on tho earth has respective rights and claims; that nono can rightfully monop olize tho whole and subject all other creatures to his absolute, irresponsible will; that of the fruits of tho earth, for example, man may lawfully take what is needed for his subsistence or enjoyment, and so may the bird, the beast and the worm. The highest created intelligence is not permitted to transcend all respon sibility and monopolise all happiness. The lowest brute that wallows in filth is not an outlaw, but entitled to his share of the general felicity. Such is the law which binds all men to let others live aud enjoy while ho lives and enjoys him self. All are teuauts with differiug privileges and capacities of tho one great bountiful (liver. Let not the quibbler pretend that the vine and the tree are the exclusive property of man, being the sole product of his labor. A portion of them is so, but not all, nor the principal part of ei ther. , The good mother earth, the generous contributor of the sustenance of all her offspring, animal and human, is, after all, the largest donor of the ele ments which constitute the herbs of the field, both great and small. In hor name the beast and the fowl put in for a por tion of their fruits, and are sure never to got as much as they are entitled to. Man takes the lion's share. But man is tyrannical, selfish and unjust. The swol- . THE ISTHIVI SHIP BAILWAT. Besides the progress the De Lesscps canal is making, which is intended to enable ships to pass from one great ocean to another without the obstruction of locks, Capt. Eads, the constructor of the jetties, is busily occupied in tho com pie tion of his railway across the Isthmus of Tehauntepec. This railway has several parallel tracks, and will carry ships with their loads overland from sea to sea. Nearly all the capital necessary to com plcte this immense undertaking has been subscribed in London, and it is positively stated that, " in a comparatively short time, the road will be in active operation, Including the river the work has now advanced twenty-five miles into the isthmus, and will be carried on with en ergy until the connection between the shores of the Atlantic and the Pacific is completed. The ships come tip to the head of the railway, are raised out of the water with all they contain ; they are then deposited upon the railways which convey them to the other shore. There they are deposited in the water ouce more and proceed on their voyage, Originally Capt. Eads intended to . raise the ships out of the water by the aid ol the usual hydraulio power, but in Lon don he has found that what is known as the "pontoon system" has been so greatly improved by the engineers there that he has adopted it as calculated better than any other to perform the delicate labor of raising the vessels from the water, then depositing them upon tho peculiar carriages placed upou the track to receive them, when tho locomotives start off with their vast load for the other side of the isthmus. This work, in which, however, our citizens and government have taken no part, though invited by Capt. Eads to do so, is one that, when completed, will have a great effect upon our own trade. If the reader will look into an atlas he will find that Lesscps's Panama canal communicates with the Caribbean sea, while the Tehauntepec ship railway of Capt. Eads opens upon tho .Gulf of Mexico, and also that it is very much nearer to the United States than tho Panama canal In fact, thero is only tho gulf to bo crossed to reach New Orleans, Galveston and tho whole coast of Florida; rounding that peninsula there is access to all our Atlantio seaports. To us who rcsido in the Mississippi Valley the Tehuantepcc ship railway is a matter of vast conse quence. Congress and our commercial peoplo in general are turning their at tcntion toward increasing our trade with the whole continent south of us. The treaty of commerce with Mexico is tho first result of this policy, and treaties with other portions of Central and South America will follow, so that our trade is likely to resume, within a few years, vast proportions in that direction. Eads's ship railway will give ready access to California, New Grenada, Peru, Bolivia and Chili, and open up an extensive Pacific trade. With proper effort an important part of this trade can be direct ed to New Orleans, and with a great commerce there iramenso advantages must result to Memphis and all the cities upon the Mississippi and its tributaries, while the farmers will have a ready out let for all they can produce. The Completion of tha Canton, Aberdeen and Nashville Railroad The Event Duly Celebrated. ABERDEEX, MISS. The Cosnalr-tian of the Canton, Abor ts ecu ami Aaabvllie HaJIrond. ICOHRKSPONDIXCC Or THE ArrKAL.I Auerdkkn, July 18. For twenty-five years the people of this cty and section have looked anxiously forward to the time when they would have railroad con nection directly with New Orleans. To day that connection was completed by laying the last rail on the Canton, Aber deen and Nashville railroad to this point from the south, and the event was grandly celebrated by an immense crowd of en thusiastic people, amid sweet mnsic and the thunder of cannon. The patriotic citizens had provided a solid gold spike, which was presented to Capt. Mann, chief engineer, by the Hon. L. E. Hunston. in an appropriate address. The captain re sponded bnenv, when tne spike was dnv en by Miss Wiidy Love, the daughter 01 the mayor of the city. 1 be road is hrst-class in every respect. The depot building is a splendid brick structure 152 feet long py twenty-eight teet in width. It has all the modern improvements. The mi chine shops for the road are located here. and work will be commenced upon the buildines at once. Improvement is the order of the day, and the town is growing faster man any town in tne Mate. wth an active population of 6OC0 people, two railroads, a navigable river, with inex haustible supplies ol coal only thirty-hve miles east of here, and located in the finest agricultural district in Mississippi, what can prevent Aberdeen from being one of the nrsr inland towns in our Southern country? Now, with the completion of the Memphis, feeima and Brunswick rail road we would be satisfied. Considering that we have had too much ram, our crops look quite well. j. w. u LITTLE KOCK, ARK. Tiir. New York showmen and sharps have not detected the trick of Miss Lulu Hurst's feats of strength with the appli cation of physical force, and they all give up the phenomenal conundrum. Some rough fellows got on the stage one night and tried to turn the exhibition into a burlesque by pretending to do the same things. It created a row and the girl got all the sympathy of the audience. Some of the papers suggest a scientific investi gation of the phenomenon as well worth while, as Miss Hurst is not the first au thenticated e'eetrio girl that has appear ed, to the discomfiture and astonishment of muscular men. In 1SC4 the Atuntie Monthly published a paper entitled "The Electrio Girl of La Pierrire." Her name was Angelique Cot tin and she was French. The feats she did were singular ly like those of Lulu Hurst, and the tests proved the genuineness of some inex plicablo force residing in her. The French Academy took cognizance of the case, but did nothing toward a solution of the mystery. Many eminent physicians and men of science made investigations, and while they reached no satisfactory explanation, the reality of the phenomena was rcoognizod by high authority. There is a call upon our scientists to take the Georgia wonder in hand. The cancellation of engagements of passago lrom American to foreign ports and the acceleration of the return of citizens of this country from abroad, on account of the prevalence of cholera in France, are matters of considerable financial significance. It requires a heavy balance of trade in our favor to bring back the money our people spend in foreign travel and to prevent a heavy metallic depletion. Dcraormtie Ratification !ttlnx The Tax wiy-rersenal Beatloia. ICORRSSPOUDKSCE Or TB iPPIAL.l LrnL Rock, July 18. We didn't get the prophesied cold weather for July not yet, at least. To-day is cooler and cloudy; day before yesterday we had most welcome and delightful ram, but most of the month has been a scorcher, Last week Mr. Pat Doyle, a well-know citizen, died, supposedly from the elfocta of overheat Thev County Levvine Court made ap propriations amounting to $71,000 for 1884 and during the proceedinat of the session there were numerous unpleasantnesses much to be regretted. Much enthusiasm has been manifested over the results of the Chicago conven tion. Monday night, in a grand ratifica tion meeting, eloquent speeches were made by prominent citizens, and great good feeling expressed. All were sure of democratic President this time. But Col. Loean II. Roots, a roan as prominent as any of the rest, in giving his views to nis mends, minus Jiiaine is bound to win. The colonel also prophesies for Arkansas great financial improvement when crops are harvested, if the pres ent promise is fulfilled. Vne uerman Mutual fire insurance Company is proven a great fraud, and ni4ny ot our country people leel sore over their losses through its agency. Miss Nellie Byrd, whose name is famil iar to all the Southern prefs, at least, as a canvasser lor the Sunny South, met with a serious accident Ust Monday night by the running away of the horse just as her es cort had handed her into a- buggy. Her hip was injured, but not broken, as was feared. Sometimes livery stable keepers forget to mention that certain horses have a habit of running away. It is a very thoughtless habit, surely, and sometimes dangerous. The Uev. W. II. W. Reese preached his farewell sermon here last Sunday nisht. Resolutions of regreat at his departure to uea Moines were unanimously adopted after the services. He is transferred ac his own request, and leave3 a host of friends in Arkansas.

The Local last regular meeting was held at the court- j bouse, in this city, on the 1st instant. An important resolution was passed, provid ing for the appointment of committees to visit the farms of the several members and report "upon the general farming economy of the homes and farms of such mem bers, whereupon several committees were appointed by the chair. .Several impor tant questions were then discussed, and the club adjourned. We learn that the lion. Geo. M. Oovan is a candidate for Secretary of State. His boyhood was spent in thus county, and he has many friends among onr citizens. If elected he will .make an excellent officer. W e spent several days in the country this week, and were entertained with teal Southern hospitality at the residence of Mr. Henderson isewell, near Ked Jianks. The crops in that part of the countare very fine. Notwithstanding thr frequency of showers, there is very little grass to be seen in the helds, and both corn and cot ton promise a plentiful harvest. On Tuesday night we attended the clos ing exercises ol Catalpa Academy, which has been most successfully conducted by Mr. George Keimensnyderfor the pastiive months, lhe children had received tne best and most careful instruction, and each one, from the wee one who had to be led on the stage to lisp his little speech, to the youths and maidens who will soon have to take their places on the stage of lil'e as young men and women, acquitted themselves with great credit both to them selves and their teacher. "The leath of Absalom" was recited in a most beautiful pnd pathetic manner by Miss Alma Newell. Master Carlock Cannon recited "Yuba Dam," a poem by Mr. George Rsimensnyder, exceedingly welL. Master Guv Hancock, Master Canon" Newell and Master Willie Thomas quite dis tinguished themselves. Several of the little misses recited their pieces so well that we could see no room for improvement Among these were Annie Jewell, Lindora and Gertrude Hill. - Annie Newell's reci tation was "Grandmother's Angel." She looked like grandmother's an eel with her petite little figure, gentle ways and blue eyes, we should use to mention eacn one but time and space forbid. The after piece, a drama entitled A Oxa of I roubles, in which several gentlemen of the neigh borhood assisted, was highly enjoyed by the audience. Earn, character was well sustained, and we think it one of the best school exhibitions we ever attended. " We never had a more pleasant visit any where and came home delighted with everything and everybody. The people are all kind and hospitable, and everyone we met added something to the pleasure of our visit.

They came in their light silks, bareheaded ex cept for the iiliu of pure white or jet black lace that fell from the back of each one's head to iier shoulders, ablaze with gold and gems, and sat in terraces of varie gated gaudiness with their laces and rib bons all fluttering in the tremulous breezes from their waving fans. At a distance you could not see crust of powdor eac'i one wears, and so tbe tints of their faces, nocks and arms were as beautiful as their deep, big eyes and languidly sensual ex pressions. Th?re were many blondes among them, all looking something like Nilsson, because, liko the .Swedes, they have rather high cheekbones.

Judge Morgan, on the contrary, if we be correctly informed, does not possess this important qualification a qualiucation which, in a contest with the wily and ex perienced hero ot the Shoestring district, we regard as indispensable. 1 ha letter ol our tellow townsman, the lion. A. t Brown, which appeared in the Appeal of the 15th instant, is attracting much atten tion, and Judge Morgan's action in regard to the Buchanan letter is eliciting a great deal of unfavorable comment among bis friends. While no one thinks for a mo ment that he meant to betray a trust, his action is nevertheless regarded as most unwise, and is deeply regretted. All now look npon Mr. Watson as the proper standard bearer of the party. His purity of character, his clean aud credit able record, his unquestionable ability. and above all, his brilliant talents as a de bater, which are a sine qua non in a contest of this kind, all combine eminently to qualify hint for the olliee to which he as pires. But whoever the Democratic can didate tray he, one thing is certain, aad that is, that Marshall county will roll up for him a rousing majority. " Nearly every county in the South, and every State in the Union will be repre sented at the Cotton Exposition at Kec Orleans. The Board of Supervisors in all, or nearly all, the counties in the State are making appropriations in order to secure representation, and our board was confi dently expected to do the same, for no one imagined that Marshall once the largest cot ton-g owing county in the world wonld allow herself to be unrepresented at the world's greatest cotton exposition, especially when it 's to be held right at our doors. What then was the surprise of our citizens npon learning that, in spite of the numerous arguments in favor of such an appropriation, in spite of the committees which waited upon the board from the several town and county organi zations, it had positively refused to appro priate a dime. We know that our present supervisors are intelligent and conscien tious gentlemen, and will "with reason answer you," but we cannot help think ing, together with the great mass of onr citizens, that they have made a serious mistake and one which will render them in the last degree unpopular. This action is severely criticised both in the press and privately, but we hope that they Will yet yield to the wishes of their constituents and make a handsome appropriation. The Karmers Club, of this county, ia no longer an experiment. It has already grown to be the largest in the State, and its success is assured. Even the most cynical now agree that it ia an established fact in our local history, and one in whose per manence aU arc deeply interested. Its SARIHN MISS.

Formerly the visitors to the great capitol building asked to be shown the Senate Chamber, the Assembly Hall and the pictures; now they ask to see the big Governor. He treats them all alike. Shaking bands may make his hand sore, but it will never throw him off his guard. One wonld think a Presidential nomination wonld agitate a man some what, but the Governor simply said: "Go over and tell sister. She will be glad to hear it." He is a man of the most perfect equanimity. I should say he would have made a good surgeon, for he could cut a leg off and never flinch. He might sympathize very deeply with the unfortu nate victim, lor ne has a warm nean, oat if he thought his leg ought to be cut off it would have to come. What he thinks is right to be done he does with all the earnestness of a very strong nature. Of dissimulation he has none. I saw a workingman in his shirt-sleeves rush in to shake hands with him the other day, and a little later a United States Senator arrived to offer his congratulations, but 1 could not see that the Governor "shifted his position" m the least. 'He wasthe embodi ment of simplicity toward both. He is a man you will nnd the same on luesuay he was on Monday, and the same on Wednesday he was on Tuesday. Easy enough to approach at any time when he has not something ne minus is more im portant to do than to talk to you, other wise he shuts up very close. In some important methods of life he has not got very far away from the primary simplicity of childhood. And here comes in an anecdote I heard of htm. The crier in one of the courts of Albany is a buna man, who lives in the same part of the city as the Governor, aa is soinewoat aged, and lias uecome on isuiiaar uu wo road from his homeover to the courthouse that he generally goes alone. But one morning, some months ago, be missed his way and tbe the Governor coming along took him by the arm and brought him along' with him as far as the capitol build ing. As they were about to separate, the old gentleman asked the name of his con siderate guide. "My name is Cleveland," said the Gov ernor. "Are vou in business in the city?" "Yes. I have an office up here in the capitol." "Oh, yon are not the Governot ?" es. l am tne uovernor. The poor old fellow was almost beside hiuiself, and went on his way with a story t tell as long as he lived. One morning since the t tovernor e nomi nation for President, a) he was walking over from the Executive residence to the capitol, he again found the old court crier astray fro n his familiar path, and again took him by the arm and helped him along as f ar aa they went the same way. As they waiueu me oia gentleman pro ceeded to tell of another time when he had gdt lost and how a kind-hearted man heloed him out of his difficulty and how that kind hearted man turned out to be Gov. Cleveland. "Well, you have en countered the Governor again," was the quiet response. And then the poor old crier was beside himself. He had been escorted bv a good Samaritan who might be the President ol the L otted Males. At least two xtories and a mansard roof bad been added to the good story he already had to tell, and again he went on his way rejoicing. The Governor is iuu oi me mux oi un man kindness and his heart is big enough to take in all mankind. Though a bache lor, he has a most benignant face and can talk to you like a father. The pictures of him do noi. g.v3 his lace as it is generally seen. lie sometimes too to serious, out never cross or austere. As soon as you see Min you feel that you need not have any trepidation in speaking to him. Some times public men have a way of making everybody who attempt to come near them get down and crawl in the dnst of humiliation, as il it was one oi tne goas oi Bundclcund about to be approached, but not so with our big Governor of the big State of New York, and our b:g Presi dential nominee of the big Democratic party. If he ever gets to the White House all the sisters will feel like he is their brother, all the cousins will feel like he is their cousin, and all the aunts will feel lise he is their nephew. When he sits down there is not much room left between the arms of a pretty wide chair and he looks wonderfully comfortable and home like. The other day when there were three or four gentlemen callers sitting or walking about in the Execu tive office, a bunch of country women dropped in on their sight seeing tour. After gazing about in some perplexity, as if they were looking for something they could not find to their entire satisfaction, the eldest aud the supposable head ot the party ventured up to the Governor as the most approachable man she saw, and ven tured to ask, "Which might be the Gov ernor?" "Right here," said he, as he thumped himself on the bosom and went on with the business in hand. "Oh !" the lady ejaculated, and retired amid her blushes to tho expectant group in the corner, and then they all looked over and said "oh !" in chorus. When the Governor gets well settled in his chair, takes a good long breath and adjusts his glasses on the lower part of his nose, he looks as wise as t ranxun. lie looks as though it would take a very con siderable shock to knock him off his bal ance. I asked him the other day if he read the papers that abused him. "Sometimes," said he, with a smile that broke out all over his face. "Do you ever get disturbed ever any thing they say ?" "Not much. Every man has a right to enjoy his own mind. I remember an old lellow who was a neighbor ol my lather aud we wonld sometimes try to get him to come over to our church. Ho was a strong Baptist, aud he would always sav: 'No; yon folks are Presbyterians, and if I go over to your church I couldn't enjoy my mind.' " Of course, that was the end of the argument." What is the most annoying slander they have ever published about you, Governor?" "Well. I have been more surprised (and then he did twist just a little in his chair) at the way I have been misrepresonted as to the laboring men than anything else. I don't see how the idea ever got out in the hrst place that I have been opposed to the interests of laboring men. I cannot re member one single act in my life that could be reasonably construed into any thing inimicul to their best interests. It has been just the other way with me. I have always taken particular pains, when ever it was in my power, to oe their in terests well guarded. Jat l nave no lear a to the outcome. I have observed that laboring msn have minds of their own as well as political principles, and when there has been a fall investigation of my ollicial lifo the f.i;;U will be niade known, and I am not uneasy as to the result. TLcy talk about the worktnginen as if ttiey were a lot of sheep to be corralel or scattered by this man or that. Most workingmen are na-ural Democrats'. Democracy means the rule of the people, and the Demo cratic party has always been the natural mend ot the workingman. i ao not, tains any great number ot those who are in my party will fail to vote for me, first, b3cr.us3 they ate naturally disposed to go with their party, and second, because they will 'earn long beiore election day that my at titude toward them has been misrepresented." The Governor had grown serious enough to lav his glasses on tbe deik and wipe his tina wilt, on imnianca ,i'iitn h'J tf k Arcll i '" VJ .... by what he considered to be strong con stitutional objections to the bill, and he showed that he bad the courage of bis convictions. The saaie is true of his veto of the bill which seems to have aroused some opposition to him on the part of the Catholics. I have the personal assurance of such eminent men of that faith as Henry L. Hoguet, the president of the Immigrant Industrial Savings Bank, and Ex-Senator Francis Kernau, that Gov. Cleveland is free from all prejudice against the Catholics of this State or country. We Roman Catholics do not expect a President to violate any constitutional claims to oblige us, and we would be un worthy ol our faith it we asxea ior anv favors not consistent with constitutional obligations." CLEVELAND AND TUB LABOR1XQ CLASSES. "Did Gov. Cleveland express himself as regards the laboring classes?" - "There was no direct allusion to that ef fect in my conversation with him, but the laboring element can rely with greater se curity on the advocacy of their rights by a man like Cleveland and a great organiza tion like the Democratic party than on the sudden devotion to their interests of any demagogue aspiring to national place. The coming campaign may be likened to the one when Abraham Lincoln was first nominated. Mr. Lincoln was then un known, as Mr. Cleveland is, and I think that Cleveland will bo a Godsend to re form in the republic as Lincoln was in crushing rebellion." "Is Mr. Hendricks's nomination equally acceptable to you ?" "Equally so. Tbe scene in the conven tion when his name was mentioned is in comparable. There was nothing in the world like it. If it had been the result of a speech, it would have been the grandest triumph to oratory. It was started by the announcement of a single vote for Hendricks. During the half hour that the cyclone of enthusiasm raged it must have produced the most exquisite sensations to Mr. Hendricks, who was pres ent It aeemed to me to be the climax of the arguments against tbe fraud ot 1870, If Tilden was out of the way here was the man to vindicate the wrong. I thought Cleveland's forces would be scattered bj the tremendous demonstration and Hend ricks sure of the nomination, but there never was a bodv of delegates more splendidly disciplined than the friends of Cleveland, u ndismayea oy me cycione, they nominated Cleveland, and with a master stroke of policy made the ticket Cleveland and Hendricks. This ticket will sweep the country. I say this who differ from all of my party as to Mr. Blaine. I am proud to proclaim myself warm personal friend of Mr. Blaine, who is the greatest man, with the exception oi Lincoln, nominated by theopposition since Henry Ulay. fill , . n now win a emisvivania go : "There is no reason to hone that we can carry Pennsylvania against Blaine, bnt we will gain the aid ol a CDnservative element in the Republican party which will greatly reduce rhe ordinary Republican majority In tbe Mate."

Cores oondence -of the San Francisco AHa: The advent of Diaz to the Presiden tial chair is hailed with delight by the en tire population ot Mexico natives and foreigners alike. The programme set forth by the future President exhibits a vast series of reforms which will greatly tend to make the country a safe ami profit- aDie one ior tee investment ol foreign en terprise. The Mexican tariff is to be thoroughly revised, and the influx and efllux of money will be unhampered by the duties now on them. The railroads and telegraphs will have due attention given tbem, and the system of brigandage now so widely practiced to the great detri ment of travel will be entirely wiped out Apropos ot tram wreckage, 1 may as well give my personal experience on one of the wrecked trains to show, the determined character ot the lawless wreckers on the Mexican Central aud other roads traverg ing the territory. While en route to the City of Mexico, and within about ten or eleven hours run to onr destination, at place a little above Queretaro City, and between 8 and 0 o clock at night, a sudden shock was felt on board the! express train, the cars overturned, and a number of ride and pistol shots were heard in rapid succession. The train had been going at about twenty two or twenty-three miles an hour when the shock was experienced, and all the occu pants of the cars felt assured that train wreckers, were on the alert. I was vio lently thrown from my seat on the left hand side of the Pullman car, and as the car turned a complete side somersault I was precipitated from the opposite window and landed in a ditch of soft mud, for tunately sustaining no other injury than that of soiling my clothes and losing my watch in the mud. I, how ever, had" a narrow escape from losing my life through being shot, as, when t lauded in the mud, and had barely risen to my f iet, a full-bearded desperado presented a pistol to my fare, the cold muzzle touch ing my forehead, and this contact, cold and sudden as it was, coupled with the dimly discernible determined visage in front of me, made tne feel anything but pleasant. In less ti i.e than it takes to tell it I raised my head, drew it back and slightly to the right, when the pistol ex ploded alongside AT THE VATICAN. tlemen are never admitted at the Vatican upon any public occasion without a dress coat; even when the Pope officiates in tbe Sistine chapel this is required. Leo XIII is rather tall, bnt looks taller than he really is, because he is so. very slender. His face is thin and more intel lectual than handsome, but it lightens up wonderfully when he smiles. He im presses everyone as being a very cuperior man. He is very gracious in his manners, but at the same time very dignified, and it would be a very bold man who wonld dare to take a liberty with him. The only military aspect about the Yatican is the Swiss Guards, who in their handsome uni form stand on duty at the foot of the mag nificent staircase leading to the entrance of the Vatican.

New York H'orM: Daniel Dougherty, of Pennsylvania, who was stopping at the James Hotel, returned to his home in Philade'.uhia yesterday aiternoon. a re porter of the World called on him before he left and questioned him as to the iin pression produced on him by his recent visit to gov. Uieveiand at Albany. "I saw the Governor," said Mr. Dough erty, lor the hrst time in my Xte. ana i was perfectly charmed by his frank man ner aud dignified bearing. At Chicago I was not at the outset one of his adherents. I believed that the nomination should have gone to some of the war-worn heroes of the party rather than to a man who was comparatively unknown in tbe national arena of politics. But my meeting with tbe Governor and the conversation I had with him have convinced me that his is the best nomination we could have made, He is a man of comprehensive mind, of broad statesmanship, of free and inde pendent views a man who, while con nerving all the interests of the Democratic parly, to which he will owe his election, will nevertheless le President of the w ole country. All his official acts will be for the benefit of the whole people. LIN l ia i lie oit i vii a imiuou, vj - "What was the nature of your conver sal ion with Gov. Cleveland ?" "Oh, it was purely informal. He spoke about general political questions without anv nersonal reference to himself. The rights and obligations of corporations and the toleration due to all forms of religious lieliefs were freelv discussed. From the tone of the conversation I am positive that while Gov. Cleveland as President will adhere most rigidly to the vested rights of corporations, he will never be treir servant or their slave. His very veto of tbe five-cent elevated railroad fare hill, above all things, proves to me bis fit neiu for the office for which he has been nominated. Were he a vile demagogue he could havo bought cheap renown b signing that bill. But be was influenced of my left cheek, the powder burning the side of my face. I knew that I had my revolver in mv little satchel which I kept slung over my shoulder and hanging at my side, and 1 instinctively felt for it there. I had just got it out of the satchel and cocked it as the desperado presented arms again. I raised my hand to fire on him, bnt before 1 could get sufficient elevation my arm was struck down and the pistol exploded prematurely, a .d my enemy received the ball in bis hip. causing him to fall to the ground in great agony, lie leveled an other shot, which I succeeded in dodging, when the rurales, or native police, came upon the scene and arrested and disarmed him. During this time some twenty or thirty shots were exchanged, and no less than thirteen persons were killed, eleven of whom were Ameri cans. lhe engineer and firemen were both seriously wounded, but the conductor escaped with a few bruises. agm ot me train wreckers were captured on tbe spot and, from what was gathered afterward, fonrteen in all comprised the gang. Tne eight men, including my wounded adversary, were taken to tjuere taro and shot the following evening. The ditched cars and engine were replaced on the track the next day at daylight by means of a gang of laborers brought on by the construction train which had been telegraphed for. iour more of the wreckers were caught the next day about sixteen miles from Queretaro by the ruralet, and they shared the same fate as their confreres, only ia a dilljrent and more summary manner. The fate of these four men was singular, to siy the least, and though their punishment was well merited, it was executed in a peculiar manner. The ruralet, having captured their prisoners at a considerable distance from the town, knew that they would have a long journey before-them. and that, when they reached the town, they would have to remain several days before the trial and identification of their prisoners took place, pro posed to their prisoners, as they were unobserved, to go "lea bail" and skip," or, "in other words, to escape. The prisoners, nothing loth to regain their lib erty, made double quick tracks for the woods, shouting mermy at their escape from durance vile. Tneir hilarity, aUs ! for them was premature, for hardly had they gone a doseu paces when the ruralet leveled their Winchester repeating rilles and sent death incsengrs through the bodies of the would-be runaways, killing them on tho spot. The ruraltt then took the dead bodies and brought them into tueretaro, stating to the authorities that they had to ehoot their prisoners iu order to prevent their escape, aud pointed to the bullet-holes in their bu-ks in verification of their statement. This is no romance, but an actual fact. Gen. Diaz proposes to have train-wrecking episodes, such as 1 have just related, mat ters ot very rare occurrence, anu wnat with these and other reforms of a like nature foreign powers, and the United Htales in particular, will have occasion to bless the day that once more placed l er- nno Diaz in the 1 residential chair ot Mexico. si.nkx.

Giant is residiug hfro. lie is still lame and unable to attend the National Encampment of the Grand Army at Aunneapous next week, Rome correspondence San Francisco Alia, June 15th: Like Napoleon, Leo XIII does a great deal of work and takes very little sleep. He rises at 3 o'clock in the summer, and at tt o'clock in the winter. His toilet occupies a half-hour, after which he passes an hour in prayer and meditation as a preparation for mass. which he says every day in one of the private chapels of the Vatican. He olhciates at the altar with exemplary de votion, and there is an exceeding grace in all his ii ovements, whether in the sanc- uarj, in his garden, in his library, or when holding a public audience. He takes always thirty minutes to say low mass, at which, as a great privilege ami special favor, a small number of strangers are sometimes per mitted to be present, and even to receive the holy communion at the hands of his holiness. At the close ot his mass the Pone disrobes and kneels at a vrie-dieu in the sanctuary, while one of the monsig nori of the household offers a mass of thanksgiving, during which his holiness prays fervently, and often audibly. At 8 o'clock the Pope takes his cafe au tail and a roll. Leo XIII is one of the most ab stemious of men, and the entire expenses of his table do not average more than $1 a day the whole yetr round. It mnst be remembered mat the Pope always takes his meals alone. After his cafe, a select number of persons, who have- been hon ored by admission to a private audience, are received in an informal manner. As they approach, UGH. MACI1I, THE GRAND CHAMBERLAIN Of THE VATICAN, announces the name of each person. The 1 ope says a lew words to each, either something personal or something about tbe person s country, gives them all bis blessing (during which all present kneel), and retires, the whole affair not lasting more than twenty or thirty minutes, ac cording to the number of persons re ceived. At tbe close of the audience Leo XIII goes to his library, where he re ceives the reports of his secretaries and attends to his public and private cor respondence, which of course is very largo. He either dictates answers to letters or writes a few words on the back of unimportant letters, and hands them to a private secretary to answer. About noon tbe Pope taxes his daily walk in the Vatican garden', attended by two cardinals and several of tbe officers of his household, called camerieri, who are laymen. The Pope wears a cloak oi red silk, made of lamb's wool and lined with purple silk. Over tae cloak there is a red cape, and both trimmed with a narrow gold bullion border. He wears a red -cap, the sides of which are held np by a Hue gold tassel; his feet are covered with silk hoso, over which are an outer pair of shoes and thin slippers. His walk manifests a faculty of inner consciousness and mental absorption in great contrast with his demeanor in public. During his hour's walk in the garden he converses with the attendant cardinals upon impor tant affairs, in which the whole Catholic world is interested. Leo XIII has not been out of the Yatican grounds since his elevation to the Papacy f MOUB THAN SIX YKAKS AOO. The garden consists of 400 acres, and U more interesting from its historical asso ciation than its present beauty and ele gance. In fact, the garden wears a rather neglected appearancs, relieved, however, by two or three fountains, which are al ways so refreshing to the eye and ear in warm climates. Among the works of an tiquity in lhe Vatican Garden are two bronze peacocks, which were found in Hadrian s tomb, and the pedes' al of the column of Antonius Pius, from the Forum. Tho latter is composed of one magnificent piocs and embellished with exquisite bas reliefs. At 1 o'clock the Pope takes his simple breakfast, during which an attendant reads a favorite volume. Leo XI II is a great ad mirer of the philosophy of St. Thomas of Aquinas, and never passes a day without hearing a portion of it read. After break fast he goes to his library, where he spends an hour or two in carefully revis ing and correcting every document written by his secretaries before they are sent ont to the nations of the earth. All the docu ments emanating from the Vatican are prepared with the greatest care and delib eration, and when transmitted to the Christian world they aro so complete that not a flaw can be found in them. Leo X III is considered to be a more consum mate statesman than Pius IX and devotes more time to theaffairsof State and leaves less to his chief secretary than did his immediate predecessor. Pius IX was very fatherly in his manner, and was in the habit of giving longer audiences than the present Pontiff. I have heard of a young American gentleman spending AN HOI' R IN A PRIVATE AUDIENCE with the former, during which his holi ness conversed in a most unrestrained manner. Leo XIII, like Phis IX, is deep ly interested in the progress of the Church in the United States, and looks upon this country as the future hope of the Catholic religion. All the present governments of Europe, whether c tiled Catholic or not, are either openly or secretly inimicil to tbe Papacy. F.auce, which has si long borne the proud title of the eldest daugh ter of the Church, is now more Ptgan than Christian. Austria saw with indif ference the Pops despoiled of his tempo ral possession. Germany has b?en the avowed enemy of the Chnreh. Kuia regards with a j -al us eye the advance of Catholicity in the H st. England tu!erttes St. Johns, X. F., July 10.

Hasen is annoyed by the criticisms which have been made respecting tbe non- establishment of a depot near Cape Sabin, upon tbe west coast of the channel, and has prepared the tollowing memorandum in respect to the matter: "It was the plan from the first to place a depot npon the east bank of Greenland at Littleton Island. This was Greely's plan after a very careful and prolonged study of the whole subject. He not only made the plan before he started, but very carefully reiterated it in writing after reaching Lady t rankua bay closing his letter on the subject in these words: 'mo deviation lrom these instruc tions should be Dsrmitted. Latitude of ac tion should not be given to the relief party who on an unknown coast are searching for men who know their plans and orders. The reasons for this "decision were that there was coal on tbe east side and none on the west It was in the neighborhood of friendly Esquimaux, who did not live on the west side. On the east side tl.ero was abundant game, while there was none on the west side. Numerous camps ol explorers bad hBen established on tbe east side for the above reason, while they are never established on the west side, be cause the west side was scarcely more than barren rocks. The pledge of the Signal Cilice to support Greely in exact accord with this arrangement was the most sacred any man could give; to have departed from it wonld have been base, treachery. This was done in every particular respect ively. One may now see other plans that might have been better, hut in mak ing personal judgments we must place ourselves in the position of Greely and those who wero working with him three years ago, at the time he left, lhe Signal Office was condemned by a court of in quiry because it did not depart from this agreement so far as to establish a depot going np ius'ead of coming down, if it failed to reach Lady Franklin bay, as Greely had directed, but it seems no that if it had been done Greely could nut have reached it, as explained in bis dispatch, for reasons then not foreseen." urn Absolutely Pure Tail Mvdn never varies.

WOBK OP TUB AKTKKNOON. After spending an hour or two in the af ternoon over important State papers, the I'ope savs the divine omce ot tlie day, aud then pives audience to foreign ministers and other distinguished strangers. At 6 o'clock he dines, making a slight repast on a little soup, meat, fruit, and a small glass of wiue and water. After dinner he takes a short rest, when the business of the day is resumed, and he receives the cardinals, or any persons, lay and clerical, who liave any special business wttn him. At 8:30" o'clock lie retires to his closet, where he prays and works far into the night. .During these laborious nou:a of the night, the Pope is employed in read ing and revising important "documents, such as encyclical letters, briefs, etc., which Cardinal Jacomni Mas prepared and sub mitted for bis approval. Leo A.11I is regarded as a providential man ; he is abreast with the times, keeps himself well up in everything that is going on in the world. He has not the same New York World: Two loving hearts throbbed in happy unislon five years ago aa Adolph Tennison, bis face wreathed in smiles, left the altar with his newly-made wife resting trustingly npon his arm. They settled down as landlord and landlady of a small boardinghouse at No. if 1 Van Brunt street, and sent ont cards announc ing that substantial board and comfortable lodgings couia ne naa at reasonaoie prices. The house soon became the home of a number of Germans, among whom was John Jensen, employed on the Pennsyl vania railroad. Jensen soon made an im pression npon Tennison's wife. Tennison conld not at first believe that she was any thing but true to him, but the constant hints which were thrown out by the other boarders soon made the young husband suspicious. Then he becamo jealous. A short tinin aico Jensen left Tennison's boardinghouse, aud a few days ui:, accord ing to her husband's statement, Mrs. Ten nison packet three large trunks with the most valuable of the household ffcets and suddenly disappeared, leaving a brief note stating that she had "gone for god." Now Tennison's heart thro'oa ia loneli ness. His bright dream of hapyincss has vanished, and, realizing his position, he is anxious to bs legally freed from his "faith less wife." James Chrisliai Andersen, a DjuibIi manufacturer of coits, claims that the affections of his wife have been alienated from him by Peter Johnson, another cork maker, and placing his loss at $25,000, has begun an action in the Supreaie Court, Brooklyn, to recover damages. Andersen resides at No. 33 Henry street, and John son, who is sixty five years of age, occu- f ies a neat three-story dwelling at No. 293 lewes street, Williamsburg. In a state ment to his lawyer, Andersen says, among other things, many handsome and costly presents were received by his wife from Johnson, and that on one occasion she left home and did not return for six weeks. In November, ISSil, she left him and has not since returned. Mr. Johnson says that he did take Mrs. Andersen to Coney Island, hut his' wife wub one ef the parlv. - He also status that he has not seen Mrs. Andersen ia two years. BT WALLOON T TIIE POLS.

He still, however, looks uKn the occupation of Rome as a spolia tion, and the King of Italy as a usurper, and consequently all civil and diplomatic relations between the Yatican and the tjuirinal are out of the ques tion. Any foreign prince or poten tate who accepts a hospitality of King Humbert is recarded as unfriendly at the Vatican, aud ay be tlenied admission to the presence of his holiness, even though bo be the heir of the greatest prince in Christendom.

ETWETTB AT THE VATICAN. The Vatican is the most ancient and ceremonious court in tbe world, and to obtain an audience of the Pone requires considerable influence and much patience. The visitor makes application in person, piovided with a letter to Mgr. Machi, Grand Chamberlain. . After cooling his heels in an ante-rooin of the palace, he takes his turn and is admitted into the ottice of one of the secretaries of tbe Grand Chamberlain. No English is spoken here, aud if the visitor does not speak either French or Italian, he might as well stay at home. The name and ad dress of the applicant is entered in a large book kept for the purpose ; the card, the letter of recommendation are inclosed in an envelope, which is addressed to Mgr. Machi. Tbe applicant is then expected to retire to allow the dozen or more )iereons waiting in the ante room to go through the same routine. If the application has been successful, the applicant will, in two to six weeks, re ceive notification that, & audiernoe will be bliLateertatnliour on a certain day, at w bich he is to have the honor of being present.
