TIIX 1ST tBATill. Our excellent friend, the Hon. T. W. Brown, has much tribulation in blossom ing into a fragrant Republican bouquet, and in transferring his splendid talents and brilliant attainments to the support of the tattooed candidate for the Presi-. dency. It was bad enough for him. to paok op bis baggage and incontinently leave the Democratic) party, over whose meetings he presided with so much race sod dignity. But it is oruel in hint to torture the Democrats by an interview, which reminds them of the irreparable loss they have sustained by his disaffec tion. Time soothes the mother's grief ; but in rummaging through tho bottom drawer, the night ot the little shoes, the earls, the trinkets and toys, opens anew the fountain of grief and tears. Time, the great tomb-builder, had kindly and mercifully collected the fragments of the great Democratic , heart which had teen shattered by Judge Brown's politi cal death. But a curious reporter, who las not the first bowel of compassion, unfortunately opened the bottom drawer . of the Democratic party, and the sight of that interview causes the muse of Democratic glory to pause aud drop a ft.r river the crowning misfortune that las overtaken the bereaved children of Democracy. , We advice the .National Democracy, stricken by a common ca lamity, to bind up their broken hearts, to dry ,up their tears, put their ban danas in their pockets, and to console themselves with the pleasing reflection that while the disaffectioa -of-Judge Brown is a souree of grief aad lamenta tion, the loss will be slightly compen sated by the election of 0 rover Clove land. In this hour ' of sorrow let us soothe our wounds with the poultice of philosophy. When a meteor falls upon a star it does not jostle tho Wniffini world in its august orbit, be- " cauae tho law which holds the universe in n!ara and which makes collisions. im possible b'rtwecn the eUariots of light that roll along the avenues or spice, is stronger than any world. And so we hope toe great law which uphold the repub lic and on which the gret Democratic party rente will not be Jostled by our .me toorio friend the Hon. T. W. Brown.who persists in shooting and blazing through the politlaal firmamont. So far as hoard, thoro has Leon no earthquakes, eclipses or comets with ' lurid tails, bocause he Las deserted tho .Democratic party, and men of sanguine,' bilious temperaments Btill bcliovo that tho grand old organiza tion will survive the opposition of the new colossus that has tackled it. 4HtO AND WEST VIBUIWIA. The States of Ohio and West Virginia elect State officials on Tuesday next. Thither tho eyes of the nation will be turned for the next three days with eager anxiety. Ohio has been the field of unbroken Republican , victories in Presidential cleotions, and it the Democrats should1 curry tho State the - Presidential eloctiou ' will be virtually . scttlod. A the Democrats can eleot Cleveland without Ohio, the usual Republican victory in that State will Ly no meuN dishearten the Demo crats. But the Republicans snust win Ohio or practically Burreudcr theoontost Both parties are sanguine and working . with the energy of desperation. The following figure show -that for thirty years the State has been as true to the llepublicau party as the needle to the iiole: - ' "J ' ftsi,. Drm.

The Republicans have made excep tionable and exhaustive efforts to carry tho Stato on Tneaday. They have made a bewildering expepditure of money and superhuman efforts, and if after all there should be a diminution of the usual ma jority, averaging over 30,000 for thirty years, it would demonstrate the election of ClevelnnJ, for if there is disaffection ia a StaUs so true and reliable, there would be ctrough in all the doubtful and closely contested States' to give them to Cleveland. The Republican candidates in Ohio to bo vot4 for on Tuesday, it nhould be remembered, in stronger than Blaine. The revolt among Republicans is not apiinot the party but its candidate for the Presidency, and if unobjectiona ble candidates fail to secure an election on Tuesday by the usual Re publican majority on account of the antipathy to -Blaine, there would be no hope of carrying the State for Blaine in November. Cleveland is stronger than his party, while Blaine is weaker t!)n his pirty. The Democrats are san guis), but the probabilities are that the Republican will carry the State by a Rrtfctly reduced majority. Ohio gave Gai field a majority of 34,227 four roars ago, aad if Jhe Democrats should over omo this majority on Tuesday it would indicate a revolution in public sentiment unpreoedeuUsd in the political history of the count ry. We are unable to see how the vote ol Ohio ia October it going to belp the Republicans, no matter if the Republican campaign fund secures it. If Hiking suoooeJa in buying a victory, does anybody suppose that thi Independ ent voters of. New York will be convinced thereby that Mr. Blaine is a fit nian for the Presidency? Mr. Blaine will not be . voted on till Novomber. and the olass of voters who are opposed to him are not the kind of men who allow or people to do tneir thinking for them. If the Democrats should lose West Virginia Tuesday it would have a depressing effect. But there la nothing to warrant the u'?Uef that the Democratic majority will be to any extent reduced. Four years ago, at the last general election, the average Democratic plurality was 17,000 and the clear majority 4000. Sinco 1S7G the Greenback vote has fallen to 9079 in 1SS0 andtoCl.'W in 1SS2. It is by the addition of this vote that Republican success was expected. This increase, if unassisted, would leavo the Democratic majority 10,000 if the toUl vote were the ame. In 1SS0 the total vote was 113,000, and both parties this year expect 140,000,, and it is most upon this increase of 22,000 that Re publican hopes are based. They must get 16.000 of it to mule things equal. This is unlikely, and to offset the chanee Re publicans expect much from Democratic disaffection, aud this feature is worthy aome eousideration. There can be no doubt that on Tuesday the Democrats will poll a large reserve vote ia mountainous districts, heretofore never neocary to aid in the sufficient majority. Talk of Republican success w ill bring out of this class votes never cast since the war. The Democrat, 'too, are organized as they iiTr hare been since the State was fir4 Mrt4ft.om lb Republicans iu 1870, lttt' regard the parties are equal. o, vH bttinocratie candidate for 'SEaaTb lronef tb" hU utr' tuie a iv,vtl ,a4 , Democrat, he was tho idol of the Greenback party, and has long been the champion of labor measures in the legislative councils of the State. He was nominated by the labor element of the State,, and imme diately indorsed by the progressive ele ment. While he will poll the full Democratic strength in the agricultural districts, he will draw largely front the Greenback ranks and slightly from the Republicans, especially in the mills and factories of Wheeling and the mines and quarries of the Kanawha Valley. Judge Maxwell, the Fusion candidate, was nominated by the Grecnbackers and forced upon the Republicans over the protest of the. Wheeling Intelligencer and the loading Republicans of tho State. His record will more than offset the Democratic disaffection, as he was one of the Council of Three which decided the constitutionality of the test oath that disenfranchised one-third of the voters of tho State. Every Confederate voter in the lower end ot the State curses the the memory of this council, and it is sure to injurs. Maxwell in the canvass. Bets of three to one on Democratic success are common, and even bets are made only on tho extent of the Democratic ma jority. ' CANTON, MISS. Criminal and lh Criminal Court Bulla Ag-aJaat Ibe Illinois Cen tral. Caa' of SaraUBMU Combaatloa Palatine the Town Bed Tu Weather. CORRBSrOXDEXCS Or TBS AmAL. Cantos, October 10. Madison county Circuit Court, which has been in session here for the past three weeks, adjourned to-day after disposing of a considerable amount of business. One hundred and ninety-four criminal cases were disposed of, mostly misdemeanors, however. There were tea who go to the penitentiary for terms ranging; from one to twenty years, one for life and one, Isaac Johnson, is to be hang November 19th next. Johnson is the n gro who murdered his mistress, Bella Booker, in April last, because she had notified him that she had resolved to quit her sinful ways, and to marry another man. The murder created no little ex citement at the time of its occurrence, and Johnson made a narrow escape from the hands of a mob. He is a very bad and dangerous man and has made several in effectual attempts to break jail since his present confinement. He has no sympa thiser?, and no effort will be made for a commutation of sentence. A number of important civil cases were tried. Two were of especial interest, so much so that- the judge instructed the sheriff to impanel what he was pleased to call "two ante bellum juries." meaning by that, juries composed of white men. lhe tarst ol these cases was the suit ot John C. Harwell against the Illinois Cen tral railroad, in which the plaintiff laid his damages at $10,000. ManselL was stricken with paralvsis in 1882, and in Oc to try I ut foat yeat iv iulU!d 11UW Unegffl for medical treatment, and, having been greatly benefited, was returning to his home on the cars ot the defendant. When he reached Pickens Station, Miss., the Doint to which he had paid his fare, being unable to walk alone, he was assisted to disembark from the sleeper by the railroad employes. . He claimed that the train did not fitoD at the denot. but several hundred yards from it, and not a sufficient time for A , . , I. . 1 1 . ' - . 1 tmtrwAa tltat 1ia nraa niflalw ant. rriaJl tr put on the cars at the dead hour of mid night on the damp ground whereby he re ceived further and permanent injury to bis person. The case occupied a full day. and able counsel appeared on either side. The sympathy of everybody was for the plain- tiff, who was present in the court-room in an invalid chair, but hs failed to make out his case to the satisfaction of the jury, and judgment was given in favor of the ra road. ' The second case was the suit of Charles Handy, of Canton, against the same road for money stolon from him in November, 1883, while he was a passenger oo their train from Jackson to New Orleans, Mr. Handy lost his pocketbook and contonts, and did not make the discovery until he had rcache 1 Now Orleans and gone te his hotel. Vhen he discovered his loss he announced to his friends the fact, and in answer to their inquiries as the extent of his I", be replied: ''Between $00 and 9i00," lie at once set about recovering his lost property, and upon his arrival at the depot he was accostpd by one of . the employes' who noticed his peculiar man ner, and asked him if he Lad lost any thing. He replied that he bad, and describing the pocketbook and contents, the railroad employe told him it bad been found and was in his otfiue, and that Mr. Handy haying identified it and its aontents, that if he would identify himself be could have it. Mr. Handy did this to the satio'autiqn of the railroad employe, who proved to La baggage master, and who had received tiio pocket book slid contents from the sleeping car porter, the iatter having found it on the seat or.chvlotl by Mr. Handy. In the pres ence of two witneyig.cB, and at the request of the bagaage-H. aster, j'r. Handy counted tbe money and draite, and re marking that "all was riht," and returnr ing thanks departed. Later in tho day Kt: Handy announced that $1108 bad been abstraoud from his pocket-book, and ought the hlU? o'icials of the railroad to get them to mak'((oo4 hj) lo3S. This theyretused, believing that Mr. Xlsody bad recovered all that was iu the pocket book ai the time the porter found it. Mr. Handy brouit gijit against the road npon the theory that a raiirtiad js bound for the acts of its servants, alleging ikt cope of the asid servants had abstracted ' the money. It was also argued . by his counsel that the railroad 'was guilty of negligence and want of care in not having its passengers and their effects guarded while the former slept. The case, after voluminous instructions from tho court and lengthy argument of corneal, was given to the jury. They failed t agtee, aUuding eight for the rail road and four for lU r-laintiff. There being a mistrial tbe case w'x aouticued untilnext court Th cse of spontaneous orabuStioa if there aia he such a thing which was telegraphed you tue 4y of ita occurrence, is the all-absorbing topic ot conversation, f'ertaiu it is that Mr. Hargoa. who keeps a saloon near tbe railroad depot, had a barrel of Qosebud whisky, not Mocking bird, as erroneously stated. ' The barrel had been on Up some time, and about two-thirds of,' the original contents had been drawn out. The barrel sat upon a box near a door, which was closed; there was no one in the saloon, neither was there a light, it being midday. . Mr. Ilargon was sitting at the front door, on the sidewalk, when he heard a report like that of a cannon. He glanced over his shoulder iu tije direction of the sound and saw the wall-paper nd other effects of bis sMoon in flames. A crowd rushed in, and then the firemen came with their machines, aud the flames were extin guished without any serious damage hav ing been done. Upon examination, the barrel was found ; the bottom not blown out, but blown in, and still inside the bar rel. Of coarse the whisky was all gone. In the ceiling, just above where the barrel had been sitting, was an Indentation made by the barrel in ita upward bound. Va rious opinions have been advanced as to the cause of the explosion, but no two agree. Some have declared that "there was dynamite in the barrel." A wag said it was "Jersey lightning." Another said it was a boom for 8U John, while anotlier declared that it was a postscript to one of Blaine's letters, "Burn this." The most probable is the theory of the man with the rat story. He says that a rat or mouse had made a nest in the box auder the barrel, and that the nest being Dado up of waste foound about saloons, had in it, among othor things, one or more matches. These ignited by the gnawing or motion of the rat or mouse, set fire to the nest and produced heat be tween the bos and bottom of the barrel, where gas from whisky fumes was stored, and the explosion and fire followed. Tbe weather has been dry and the streets aud roads very dasty, for the past two weeks, though the last day or two have been quite cool, so much eo as to render fires very agreeable. Last Monday and Tuesday were days of especial interest to the ladies. They turned out in large numbers to attend the grand opening of the mammoth dry goods era- Sirium of Sladeker ix Son.

The Republican Candidate for Governor of Michigan Tries to Defead Him self and, Joy, The Too Fresh Defender of Blaine fa tbe Matter or the Little Bock Bonds, But Henry Ward Beecher Makes a Final Answer that Utterly Squelches Him. Detroit, October 7. The following open letter from Gen. R. A. Alger, of this city, to Henry Ward Beecher, is made public to-night: Drtboit, Mich., October 7, 1884. To the Rev. Henry Ward Beecher, Brooklyn, , N.Y.s - Dkab 8ib The newspapers of to-day publish your letter of yesterday's date, directed to me concerning the Joy-Blaine Little Kock bonds affair, and possibly in due course of mail I may receive the orig inal letter from you. However, I hasten to reply through the same medium which brought your letter to my notice. I beg to inform you that where Mr. Joy is known he is not considered to be the guile less individual, who can be misled by a cablegram from any person, nor is he a man to allow the character of another to be unjustly tarnished when it is in his power to do justice. My cable to Mr. Joy was intended to call his attention to the Little Bock bonds affair, a matter which he doubtless understands thoroughly, and I believe his reply, clean cut as it is, was intended to refute the whole scandal. I had a conversation with Mr. Joy some years ago con cerning this matter and before his nomi nating speech of Mr. Blaine in 1880, and although I cannot give you the full de tails of that conversation, the clear im pression left npon my mind was that he at the time the proposition was made to him by some third parties to take certain bonds in Washington, supposed the prop osition came from Mr. Blaine, but subse quently became convinced that the parties themselves were the ones who were trying to sell the bonds, and that be had done Mr. Blaine an injustice. Doubtless had he remembered mentioning the matter to you he would have given you a further explanation of it had oppoitanity been given him. This impression was so strong in my mind that when I saw your com munication concerning the affair I at once cabled Mr. Joy and received the reply I expected, and I have no doubt he intend ed to fully and thoroughly refute every charge against Mr. Blaine in connection with the affair. Mr. Joy is not the man to beat around the bush and eay things he does not mean, nor to shirk any re sponsibility, and those who know him know that he deals in no uncertain lan guage in whatever he has to say, and that lie never dodges an lesue. - It seems hi ' ron inrrBdiblejthatnybnsi ness . man should believe Mr. iilaihtr 3 weak as to send such a proposition to another business man as was alleged in this matter, and thus allow himself to be subjected to ruin, even though he had no moral objection to making such a criminal proposition, as purported to have been made in this charge. If I believed him so weak I would not support him for the Presidency, though he might be as pure as St. Paul himself. When Mr. Joy returns from "Europe I hope you will seize the first opportunity to have an interview with him, and, if you find you are doing Mr. Blaine an injustice, as I thoroughly believe you are, that you will aspnblicly apologize to the American people for the wrong yon have done him and the Re publican party, as you h?.ve been active in trying to ruin both. . Mr. Joy is not the man to have accepted the great trust he did in 1S80, when he presented the name of Mr. Blaine to the Chicago Convention for the nomination as President, had he believed him guilty of any unfair dealing or of prostituting his high oflice for gain. K, A. ALGER. . peecliar Close eel Alger. Usw York, October 10. The Rev. Henry Ward JJeecber authorizes the pub lication of the following letter: ' Brooklyn, N. V., October, 184. To (Jen. K. A. Alger, Detroit. Mich. : Di ab Sis.--1 have just rceived your let ter of October8to, exhorting me "publicly to retract your (my) statements, as you bave,ia your f eal for the Democratic nomi nee and party, spread them be fore tho whole country." When tio heat of this canvass has passed ?,way yon. will think that such Anguage borders too near upon insult to be either lust or wise, I beg you to -understand that I.bave nothing to do with the truth or otherwise of Mr. Joy's state mcnta to me respecting Mr. Blaine. The ouly question is, did Mr. Joy make these statements? The transactions between biin aqd Mr. Blaine, through an interme diary, may all be mythical, or the inter nic4..ary may be .'an impostor, or Mr. B'aiuea feUnfs may never have been hurt by any such requests. Mr. Joy may never have been Shocked -at Mr. Blaine's imputed answer; and Mr. Joy's artless feelings being practiced upon bv this intermediary, he may have ex ptessd hfmself too severely about Mr. Blaine. Let Mr. -qj and Mr. Biaiue settle that between theniseivea. ' t hai' 4ot!1'11 to do with all that. Did Mr. Jo? make the remarks in myprasence which I have pub lished T If he did not I have lied. If he did Joy has lied. There is no middle gruUria; &e,e fhall be none. Either I heard it or I invented it. Mr. Joy'e sec ond telegram to you makes a languid and foolish denial, which I attribute to his not having seen or understood my statement. But if Mr. Jo? hta seen my statement and denied it, or if) -hcu be ltpds in New York he shall declare that no S'Jch conver sttjqn was had in my presence, then I have only to say that,' whereas I did not imagine there could be more than one continental liar, I am cempe.led to think that there are two. Please accept this let ter as the only retraction and apology that Ian prepared to make to you, to Mr. Joy, to Mr. Blaine and to the Repnblican party. HENRY WARD BEECHER. . now jsraiNcs, miss.

Holly Springs. October 10. A fire oc curred in this place yesterday morning about 8 o'clock. The roof caught from sparks from the kitchen flue, and when first discovered could easily have been ex tinguished with a bucket or two of water, but unfortunately no ladder was at hand, and by the time one was brought the roof had fallen in. It was a beautiful cottage, and was the property of Mrs. Arthur Fant, ii was occupied by tne family of jUol. Wooten. Everything in the house was lived. It is a shame that a town the size of Holly Springs should be without a fire engine. Even a hand engine would have been sufficient. Our people plead poverty as an excuse for not getting an engine, and some one remarked that there had not been a destructive fire in Holly Springs for twenty years. In our opinion every fire is destructive and causes loss to some" ono. The only reason our fires have not been more destructive is because it is a "city of magnificent distance-," The money it would take to replace one build, ing would buy ah engine, un our way home from the fire we overheard one darky say to another: "Dis all comes ob de folks Detn too Btingy to buy er ingin . -Mrs. Ernest, ol Abinsdon. a., is spend ing a short time in this city with her sister, Mrs. AlcJbwen.

After three very warm days a cold wave struck us jost after dark on Wednesday, Yesterday thick dresses and the first fired of the season were essential to bodily com fort. Maj. R- J. Evans has returned home, to be in readiness to begin work on tbe Mem phis, Selma and Brunswick railroad, as soon as the right of way has been secured. I have heretofore mentioned the erten- sive manufacture of pottery ware in Holly Springs. There are two large factories here, one belonging to P. i. bmtth x Bro., and the other to Messrs. Watson & Leach, 'he latter is the more exten sive and complete ; but both make excel lent ware, not to be surpassed anywhere. It is made into every variety .shape and size, plain and ornamental, and in quantities to snpply a very great demand. The hills in and around Holly Springs abound in pot ter's clay of superior quality, but tbe best is obtained from a hillside near the head of a gulch or deep hollow about two miles west of the town, at a spot known to early settlers as the "deer lick." Connected with this is more than one romance, or mystic legend, which was told to the early settlers by the Indians. I get my infor mation from an old gentleman who first came in 1833 or 1834 to Marshall county, then only a wilderness in the Chickasaw country. Something over 100 years ago there came among the Chickasaws a young white man of the Anslo-Saxon race. He was tall, straight, with fair complexion, brown hair and black eyes, and a countenance at once expressive of intelligence, generosity and courage. These, with a form of faultless symmetry, and a magnificent physique, made up a tout ensemble of such manly beauty that he at once won the admira tion of the savages. He sought and ob tained their protection and friendship. He soon excelled in all their manly sports, and became renowned in war and in peace. A chief's daughter, remarkable for her beauty, was given him in marriage. She brought him seven children, tbe youngest of whom was a son who inherited all the manly qualities of his father, with a com plexion ju t sufiiciently tint d by the olive of his motner's race to give it an inde scribable richness. He so perfectly com bined the beauty of his parents as to leave nothing to be desired; hence he was en vied by the young men and loved by the maidens. lie early became a mighty warrior. His father had become a chief, for his mother's father had been slain in battle, and the "pale face" had won so upon the confidence and admiration of her tribe as to be choeen chief in her father's place. Many were the maid ens who sought the love of- our young hero, but he gave it only to the dark-eyed daughter of a neighboring chief. She was not a beauty many of her rivals were more beautiful. . She was of medium bight, her long, straight hair was dark as the raven's wing, her form was round and plump, but symmetrical in the highest degree ; her face was oval and her features inclined to be regular, with a slight prom inence of the cheek bone, which, with well defined eye-brows and long eve- lashes, seemed to intensify the gleam of that ardent nature which beamed trom her eyes and glowed in every lineament of her face, and she had that overpower ing personal magnetism which enabled her to charm or repel whom she pleased. Her lover bowed at her shrine with per fect devotion, and his whole soul was given to the adoration of his deity. But her father.old Noch-coochee-tubbe, prided himself upon his pure Indian blood, and, having in early lite suffered some real or Indian-l'ke, he never forgave, but hated the "pale face" with a fervent hatred, and could not bear that his daughter should wed one who had a drop of the despised blood in his veins. Now, there was something in the clay of the "deer lick" which served the deer 1 wild iuUIo n ilieUt 4ctt gait, and they frequented the place to lick the soil. Here the young hunters would often lie in wait for them, and much was the game which was killed. The wigwam of old Kouh-coochee stood upon a rocky eminen-e hard by, (now known here as the Kocky mountain),. built of tbe rude atones gath ered there, the ruins of which may still be seen. Our hero had frequented the spot t.U.U WJJ JVUfcU IU CUAOUAV HllUOi where on bright moonlight nights he had pierced many a deer or wild cow with his unerring arrow. But now it had become more of a trysting place for him and his Red Fawn (for such was the interpretation of her Indian name, which my informant has forgotten 1, than a deer-stand for the huntsman. Often thev met there and talk. ed of their love, and invoked the Great Spirit to- reconcile her father to their union. But he was obdurate, and she was of a temperament not to be thwarted in her love. At last on one beautiful moon light night, late in October, when Indian summer was just putting on its dreamy base, when the zephyrs faintly fanned the cheek, and tbe air was delicious with tbe fragrance- of brown nuts and au tumn flowers, they met at the "deer lick." under their favorite trysting tree. They talked long and earnestly of their undying love, of the hopelessness of getting her father's: con sent to the marriage, ana ot the impossi bility of their separation. She loved her father, to disobey him waa a great trial. she knew it was full of danger, and her heart yearned toward bun at the thought of leaving him forever. But her ardent and magnetic nature asserted itself, and felt that all the world was less to her than her lover. She promised to bo his in life and in death- in tbe spirit if not in the language of Uuth unto Naomi, she said: "Thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God. Whither thou goet I will go; where thou die 3i I will die, and there be buriad." It was arranged that the next night she would elope with him, and seek in the wilderness a refuse from her father's w'rath, and erect a wigwam dedi cated to love. They emerged from the shadow of tba traa iata the moonlight, and ere they parted, stood for a moment in each other's embrace. The twang of a bow-string, the quick gleam of an arrow in its flight through the moonbeams, the faint scroain of a woman, aud they are one forever. The same arrow bad pierced both their hearts. Side by side they fell upon the rreen sward, and their hearts, blood ran together ' into ote stream, no more to be separated. And it is said that the red streaks sometimes found in, tbe clay is the mingled blood of the lovers. Unknown to them old Noch-coochee UaJ cn9 to the "deer lick" that night to watch for game. Fi'Qm his hiding place he saw and heard all, and his vengeance was swift and sure. But be loved his child and would not survive her; with a wjld, unearthly yell he fell npon one of his own ari'G66 aud po prpired. The lovers were buried beneath their trysting tree, with the arrow still holding them in that last embrace. .Their marriage is recorded in no earthly register only in "heaven. Noch-coochee was buried in a cave under the Kocky mountain. And ever since, as the legend tells us, on still moonlight nights (es pecially in October), the lovers are seen to fciuersa Icoin thj shadows, embrace and fall, as on that fatal night, and the moan ings of old Kochcoochee's troubled spirit " heard irom the cave where he was buried, and on aarc iZ- onny nights he roams in unrest about the mountain, liia wild veil is heard, and the lightning's (fash reveals his tall and ghostly .

DR. SINCUIIVS Address of Welcome to the Students of the Memphis Medical Allege a the ! ' X Opening of the Session t 1884-85 Words of Encouragement to . the Young Disciples of the Healing Arts Well as Valuable Suggestions and found, Practical AiTlce. The Memphis Medical Collee opened ita doors lasr Monday to the claa of 1884 85 under circumstances of unujual eclat. The attendance was much large! than on similar occasions in preceding fears, and both the trustees and the facultj feel the stimulus of it Dr. W. E. Boers, the father and founder of tbe enterptse, must feel especially gratified at a succes that is one of the most remarkable in tbj history ef medicine in the United State. Prof. A. G. Sinclair delivered the aairess of welcome on this occasion by re nest of the faculty, and was warmly received by the students. Prof. Sinclair's Addrea Gentlemen The distinguished honor of acting as their standard-bearei on this occasion navuig ueen conierrea ipon me by my esteemed colleagues in thi faculty of the Memphis Hospital MedicalCollege. it becomes my pleasing duty to bid you, in their names and my own, a most cordial welcome to the session of 1884-83. i Young gentlemen, the work upon whicbyou are entering to-day is a work botharduous and unending one which, if in it you would achieve even a moderate Agree of success, you must prosecute with intiring devotion, not only to the close cf your college career uui bo long bb you coiunae in the pursuit of your chosen votation The late Prof. Willard Parker, ol New York, one of the most eminent meuof his . : 1 i t i . . . uuie, uovu as a leucuer auu pracuueuer oi surgery, and under irhem it was rnr good fortune to acquire whatever I learned of the principles of surgery during ny nn dercraduate days, used to say that a great many of those who begin the study ot medicine die professionally on the day they receive their diplomas. They appear to believe that while in college their minds are to be stored with all the medical knowledge in the world that is of anr value a supply wnicn needs no additiors and upon which they can draw indefi nitely. But ours, gentlemen, is a progressive profession, and men of this type . soon find themselves far in the rear of their more enercetic brethren, and end by swelling the lilt of professional failures. If, then, there is one among you who brings not to this work the devotion of a lifetime, I woald advise him to retreat before crossing the threshold and seek some less exacting occupation. To those of you who, after mature deliberation, have selected the healing art as your vocation, who possess that earnestness, that determination, be fore which all obstacles go down and every undertaking ends in conquest, I ex tend most cordially the hand of fellowship, and I pledge you that during the toilsome days of your pupilage in the Memphis Hospital Medical College, the promotion of your interests shall be the tonstant care of each and every membei of this faculty. And I assure you, Renflemen, that you w-11 need it all. There is no roy al road to learning, and none mon ardu ous than that which lies before you. And why? Because the subject of your invest igations t : - "A combination and a form indeed, Where every god did ftet his seal To sive the world assurance of a man,' is the moet intricate, the most coupler which can occupy human thoughC To understand tads being in the normal con dition is the first division of your work. But this marvelous piece of animated mechanism is the plaything of a thousand activities which tend to disturb and de stroy those processes which, in the aggre gate, are termed health, and to compre hend these changes as explained by the teachings of modem science, forms th'e second, while the third and grandest is the acquisition of that godlike knowledge which will enable you to restore harmony, physical and mental, to those who are payitg the penalties inexorably atlixed to every vio lation of nature's laws. For I. hold that disease is in all cases the outcome, either immediate or remote, of a disregard of tbe principles laid down for the government of this temple of the soul. In the study of this, as of many other subjects, not Much progress was made until after the aban donment of certain metaphysical ideas which until comparatively recent yars prevailed everywhere within the bounds of civilization, and whi h were applied with seeming success to all that concerned the moral sciences. Aside from the belief of the multitudes that Holy Writ con tained all that it was proper for man to know, the philosophers maintained that inaBOBttofi-aa the wii mm A,aii liwtn n.41f d into being by an act of thought of a Cre ator in whoseimage man had been formed, man should be able to iaim out all prob lems. Therefore, through an accurate knowledge of the mind only, one should be competent to unfold by the a priori method tbe most perplexing enigmas of creation. Whatever value it might possess in ita bearing on civil, religious or social ques tions, this doctrine proved unequal to a correct interpretation of the facts of nat ural science, wtucn, as reflections ot the Divine Mind, should have been of easy solution by the a priori speculator. The attempt to explain these facts by this theoretical method gave rise to a bitter contest between th'e philosophers and the scientists, the outc,ou;e of which has been that the scientists, disgusted with tbe pretensions of philosophy, have followed ipore closely than ever their own method of research, namely, the employment of the trained senses in ob servation and experiment, and of the mind in analysis, comparison and induction. The wisdom of their course was soon proved by the progress which ensued in the development of physical sciences, and their method of investigation, from which more power and comfort have accrued to the human Janjily jo the p?t iorty years than bad been enjoyed in an equal num ber of preceding centuries, has been adopted even by the philosophers. Ec clesiastical prejudices have done much to retard scientific investigation, and many earnest workers could express their con victions only at the cost of position and Sower, ft peen in the struggles over the octrine'of'potbplasm, whih assttrts the identity of t,h'e vital material, linking to gether all animate organisms; ani mal and vegetable, fron the inoher.'a jelly:like mass existing in h protoundest (Jepths of the ocean, upward through il gra4tious of being to the crowning work of the Creator, man himself, striving to es tablish tbe laws of consanguinity between Jhe higher and lower forms oi auimai me, anu giving rise, in i the doctrine of development, to the most widely discussed theory of the present century. The application of the scientific method of research to onr own depart- j ment of science was speedily followed by marvelous progress. When the labora tory became the adjunct of the library, and men abandoned, in a great measure, the elegance of the latter for the grime of the former, the key to many of the mys teries of nature was soon found, and as a result numberless truths of untold value in their bearing on human happiness and human comfort, have in a ery few years been traced to their hiding places and transferred to the treasure-house ot pro fessional learning. Experiments, vivisec tional and otherwise, have placed physi: ology and materia medica upon the high plane which these deportments bow occu py; chemistry seems to have almost reached the limit of possibledevelopment. The study of -the cadaver has been carri d so far beyond the outposts of former days as to have given origin to the special de partment known as histology, while the discovery regarding tlje nature of the changes produced by disease, in pathology in other words, have been simply stupen dous As a result of all this progress the methods of practice have materially changed, and instead of tbe simple obser vation of the skin, tongue, etc., as in form er days, the practitioner must now make himself familiar with the use of various instruments of precision essential for the purposes of diagnosis, or the recognition of disease. In nq other department of medicine has the application of the scien tific method of investigation been follow ed by such great and rapid advancement as in those which it is my province to teach, namely, those embracing the dis orders of the eye, ear and throat, and es pecially in the first of these. Were it not lor ita historical val-e the entire literature of ophthalmology in existence at the mid dle of the present century might pass out of existence without great loss to the world. It is true that among the ancients the Egvptians were celebrated for their knowledge of diseases of the eye, and oph thalmology, together with other branches of medicine, was taught by the priests in their temples, though in a very rudiment ary manner. They divided the medical sciences into as many different depart ments as there were affections of distinct portions of the body. They failed to com- Erehend the intimate connection which inds all parts of the organism into one harmonious whole, and hence, that dis ease in one portion of the body may be due to derangements in other and even distant portions. So well do we under stand this at the present day that in our American Ophthalmologics! Society we exclude from membership all who are not versed in general medicine, although choos ing to limit their practice to diseases of the eye. The Greeks held a knowledge of dis eases of the nye to be an indispensable part of a medical education, and the accu racy and minuteness of their descriptions in many cases attest the progress which they had made in this department Some of the terms applied - to - dis orders of this organ at the present dav were in use among the Greek. Celsus and other writers Lave embalmed in history the names of various authors distinguished for their knowledge of these diseases. Following that brilliant period in the world s history ophthalmology shared in the decline which overtook all departments of learning, and at a later period was loet among the crowd of charla tans whose publications, like those of the quacks of to-day, had for their purpose not the development ot opnthaimology, but the laudation of some pretended specific or marvelous operation; were, in fact, skillfully' disguised advertisements de signed to attract the attention of the pub lic to tneir authors, one oi tnese pre tenders in the seventeenth century em braced nearly the whole of Europe, and even a portion of Asia, in his peregrina tions. He asserted the possession of a se cret process whereby he was enabled to draw off the effete and turbid humors of the eyes of old people and replace them with fresh and youthful fluids a piece of charlatanism paralleled at the present time by the pretended power to restore the sharp nessof sight in elderly people by changing the form of tbe eyeball through the use of mechanical appliances. In the eighteenth century the operation for artificial pupil was first performed, giving sight to a boy blind from birth, but the crowning achieve ment of ophthalmology during that period was the introduction by Daviel of the operation by extraction for the cure of blindness due to cataract. It- was then that the science of ophthalmology first emerged from obscurity and began to re ceive tbe attention of educated physicians. In 1773 Barthe founded the Vienna school, so celebrated at the present day, and in 1801 the London Eye Infirmary was organized. The founding of these two institutions gave a very considerable impetus to the study of disorders of the eye, bnt it was not until 1851 that very marked progress was made. At that time Helm holt z, a German physicist, by a succession of brilliant inductions based upon the laws of mathematics and physics, solved the problem of laying the interior of the living eye open to investigation, and gave to the profession an instrument, the ophthal moscope, which has entirely revolution ized the views formerly held regarding many of the most serious diseases of this organ. With this little instrument, con sisting of a mirror and a series of lenses, the Julled observer can bring to view all pathological changes from the anterior surface of the cornea to the entrance of the optic nerve in the posterior portion of the eyebalL To the same mind we are indebted for the explanation of that won derful function known as the accommoda tion of the eye, through the exercise of which we are enabled to see clearly at varying distances, and from the diminu tion of which arises the necessity for the employment of glasses in advanced life. These discoveries enlisted other minds of the highest order in the service of ophthalmology. Bonders, of Holland, has given ua a work on the re fraction of the eye which must always re main an authority on this subject. As au illustration of what has been done in this department of ophthalmology I may state that in 1876 the wearing of glosses was first permitted in the French army, and immediately 80,000 men were added io the service. How, then, shall we estimate the benefit - which the millions in civil life derive from the wearing of suitable glasses? To these illustrious names many others might well be added from the New" World as well as from the old, but I shall detain you only to speak of one a name blazing with the splendor of a succession of triumphs more to be envied than any gained on field or forum. Von Graefe, who at the early age of forty-one fell a victim to unremit ting work in the setvice of ophthalmology, was j lstly regarded es one of the greatest minds in the profession. He it was who taught us the principles which must guide us in the treatment of strabismus, and thus rendered almost certain in its results an operation which had been well nigh abandoned by prudent surgeons. Before his time thousands annually became blind inconsequence of glaucoma, a disease of tea attended with much pain, and for which there was no cure known until he found it in the operation of iridectomy. To these aud mauy other brilliant achieve ments he added one of superlative value in the operation for cataract, which bears his name. By the method of extraction previously in vogne, about twenty per cent, of the eyes operated upon were lost. This percentage of unfavorable results he reduced so far that in 1000 coses operated upon, according to his method, in the closing years of his life, his losses were less than three per cent, and this highly satisfactory result we now ordinarily ob tain in our cataract operations. There are numerous lesions of the eye which form connecting links between ophthalmology and general pathology, as, for instance, neuro-retinitis, which may be idiopathic or the consequence of renal disease, scar let fever and various other systemic a flec tions ; retinal hemorrhages occur in car diac disorders, in atheromatous condi tions of the walls of the blood vessels, and in pernicious antemia. I have observed them, also, as forerunners of apoplexy. Atrophy of the optic nerve is olten a symptom of sclerosis of the braio, and of different forms of spinal disease. To these evidences-of the importance of ophthal mology, and hence its claims to your at tention, much more might be added, but I trust suitlcient has been said to impress this npon you, as well as the value of the method of 'study described, in professional investigation. Once more, gentlemen, I extend yon, each and all, a most cordial welcome. The Dlaeaae Spreading All Over Western Portion of tbe Sate. the Eastos, Pa., October 11.

About 1 o'clock this afternoon an explosion occurred at the new Parliament building, destroying a considerable portion of the masonry and windows of the new building, which is just being roofed in. The explosion was at first supposed to have been the boiler of the engine used for hoisting material, but this proved not to be tne case, neitner can it be attributed to gas. The general im pression appears to be that the explosion was caused by dynamite, bnt as none of this ingredient is used on the works, the mystery is how it came there. An in vestigation is now being held. The work men all being away at dinner, nobody but one man is injured, and he escaped with a slight cut from a piece of stone.
