THE PRE&S I POJI THE MADISON TLA* E
TRAGEDY
[Fr-'in the Columbia South Carolinian.]
The Vuritotos Tkaukdv.?We publish in
another column. from tba Washington oorrr.poMfonce
of the New York Time*, a fnll account
of the-hooting of Mr. Key by Mr. Sickle.'.
The account, with the exception of that portion
of it which relates to Mr. Butterwnrth being in
Mr. Sickles's home, and going oat for the purwwe
of engaging Key in conversation, until
sfcklfs uVfiUke him, is substantially in
accord a no e with other.-. As far as we " an
judge. public sentiment fully sustain? Mr.
Sfc-kle*. This i* natural. We would pity that
public sentinont which is so lost to the .:anctity
of the family rwlatiou as to denounce as an
infamous murder that which, terrible though
it be. wa.- but a proper punishment for so heinous
an offxiK-e. The mau stands a.; the head of
hi,4 family; ho is its protector and governor;
sad upon him, as the head of the household
gmrrrnment. rests the vindication of such infaray
nod disgrsee as may be brought upon it
c .ndact such ns that of which Mr. Key has
Ivcn guilty. W hen public sentiment ccnsures
the infliction of this must terrible penalty upon
an ff -nee which strikes at the family, and thus
feud- to demolish the basis of s-wioly, then we
may despair of either prirato or public puritv.
It sugur< well for the public sentiment of our
country that, with a few except ions.even though
i? l>o the shedding of Mood. I hi act meets with
full approval, and with a generosity which, we
hope, Mill ?ver characterize the American people.
Instead of being the objeet of denunciation.
Mr. isi"kles receives the in??st cordial sympathy.
fFrotn ' Fair Play" in the New York Post.]
Taking Mr. Butfr worth's own statement of
his conduct on Sunday last to be in every respect
true?aid I suppose it is?I think the
character of -a man of honor,*' even in its
worldly' sense, is the very last to which he
cm lay claim.
l.-t me not be misunderstood. I don't mean
the Code of Honor in use amongst Texas ranger
and Mississippi overseers. I mean the old
time-honored code which we brought with us
hrfe from Europe, and which ha., regulated
ttie dealings <if gentlemen with on* another for
fourteen hundred yearj. The very essence and
bisis of that Code was fair play, and loyalty,
equality. in all thing:- Its whole.spirit breathes
rvom of advantage-- of any cort over an opponent
There was nothing it taught and teaches
ni-re Imperioujly than the baseness of armed
a.-sanlt upon an unarmed man ; of refusing his
life to an opponent who craved it; of assisting
at ac'iinbat in which the weaponshsd not been
measured, the wrd fairly given. and lotsdrawn
for the ground.- Jta pruvueaiiuu teas, or is,
under if. allowed to palliate in tho smallest
degree t he smallest advantage taken of an enemy.
Whether the insolt be a blow in the faoe.
or the scduction of one's wife, the lie direct, or
the underhand slander, any man who appeal*
to that Code mast obey its laws to the letter,
must give his adversary warning, must have
witnesses to sec that bis own wish at the commencement
of the light is in nil outward respe-t*
e?jual to his enemy'*. And let us add.
ta>*t any man who professes to be guiJed by its
relet, as Mr. Bnttcrworth apparently does,
must not look on and allow his friend to redress
his wrongs in a way in which he ought
rot to redress them himself. There is no civilized
oountry in the world in which a second
in an unfair duel would not be held in even
greater abhorrerce than the victorious principal.
" hat has Mr. Futterworth done? II? has
seen his friend Sickles assail his friend Key
withont warning, without deadly weapons; he
has seen Key, wounded and disabled, lean hclpleedy
against a tree and crave for life?a prayer
which only a I imanche e^er r fuses, even in
the hottest fight; he has .seen Sickles advance
>n him while in this condition, snap a cap at
hun. deliberately re-cock his pistol, and then
shoot him through the body. Did he move hand
or foot to prevent this atrocious butchery ? Did
he utter a word of remonstrance f Did he call
on Sichles not to stain himself with a deeper
<tain than his wife s conduct had imprinted on
him by slaying a wounded man ? Did he.when
the slaughter was finished, tell him that, tliongh
his wrongs were no doubt great, he had not
acted a* a man of honor; that he had strack a
fejon blow; and that, thongh his own conscience
nnght acuuit him. he (Butterworth) to whom
K-y had done no wrong, must say that Key had
', j'n f"u!ly slain ? Not a bit of it. He' took
<hf murderer's arm very cordially ami walked
away from the sc-ne. leaving his victim palpitating
in the throes of death.
[1 roni t!ie Philadelphia Despatch.]
W e may as well pr-miM' what we shall have
to say in rcf. reace to the murder of Phiip Barton
Key by l>aniel E. Sickles, member of Congrp*^_wbi
-h fatal event took place at Washington
< a ,iJT t?by a broad ami full decla
ration that we consider that the word W/rct>?n,
as applied to a lapse from virtue by a
married woman, is Improper. There may have
been In-tanc s where young and artless girls,
in liitir pure and trusting confidence, have been
h-artle.-ly educed and betrayed: but in nine
cues out of ten what are e*IN Wwr/iW? are
catutd by the ill-governed passions and advances
of the women. It is convenient, cfter the

we can (Scarcely look for such a miracle of justice
as the punishment of Mr. Sickles, under
the ircunvstances. but we do hope that tho
public opinion and press of the country will
not this time be debauched sympathetically in
the orgies of Revenge. and made to bow before I
that bloody idol. In the name of Christianity,
we owe a protest against tho current sympathy
with men of bload. Wc must not uphold them
by the faintest extenuation, in any eirouin
stances. Mr Sickle* has gratified his passions,
but he has executed no justice, even though it
had been his province to do it. in thus punishing
one party to a mutual crime. The lame
and impotent inequality of human severity in
such a ease deprives it of even the lurid judicial
sublimity which imposes on the judgment
of mankind, and leaves it a base indulgence of
selfish, brutal rage. " Cursed bo their anger,
for it was fiercc; and their wrath, for it was
crncl/'
[From The Independent (Congrcgationalist) ]
Similar occasions to that which brought
about the sudden and bloody death of Key, do
undoubtedly not unfreqnently arise; and though
in the large majority of eases those who are
specially touched by these, for the sake of
all the interests involved, of family, reputation,
pride, the future, seek other more silent
forms of redress, there will be cases when
only the utter and instant destruction of the life
of the betrayer will satisfy the furious thirst
for vengeance. We do not justify Mr. Sickles
in his act. It was simply a summary, sanguinary.

lie has 111 tide himself obnoxious to the
laws of the country, to the judgment of his
countrymen, to tho searching and terrific inquisition
of his conscience, which can never
shake off or really wipe out this stain of blood;
above all. to<?od. whose judgment draws nigher
every hoar. If his own life has been, as is
freely intimated, an impure one. this should
and will weigh heavily against him in the opinion
and feeling of allju.it men. whether it does
so in courts or not. And the punishment that
comes from a ruined home, from a blighted career.
from the sense of being pilloried before
the eyes of the country as a man whose wife
proved faithless to him?this he never can escape.
We see not that he can hope ever to outlive
it. and wc cannot indeed wish that he
should.
[From the Evangelist (Presbyterian) ]
When such horrid tragedies occur, if is not
merely the law which is at fault, but society is
nt fault. Theae fim! blotches on the face of society
show that there is rottenness beneath.
The laws of honor are utterly impotent to restrain
the passions of men. Probably many
who will appland this homicide are conscious
in their own souls that they arc guilty of the
very outrage for which they justify another in
taking human life. They justify this swift revenge.
when they have no principle of religion
and no sense of honor to restrain them from inflicting
the same wrong on their neighbor or
their dearest friend.
[From the Baltimore Exchange.J
The Exchange notices, in terms of reprehen
si?>n. the spirit of unfairness and strong personal
bias with which the accounts of the tragedy
have been transmitted by the agents of tlie
ass^iated press or the professional letter
writers at the seat of government, and says in
this connection: ?
???r object ia simply to put o?ir readers on their
guard, agninst the persistent and systematic
efforts which arc now being made, to prejudice
the public mind and forestall the verdict of the
Law. and to enter our protest against the false
and mistaken sentiment of honor, by which a
jreat public crime is sought t > be justified.
Fur?let our readers be carci'ul to remember?
that no matter what the provocation may have
been, in the eye of the law. the wilful and premeditated
killing of a man. cannot be less than
murder, and murder in the first and highest
degree. In the next place, we will venture to
remind them, that whatever Mr. Key's faults
of character may have been, and it is not our
business to extenuate thciu, in the judgment
of those who knew him best, he was a man
wholly incapable of plotting or accomplishing
the ruiu of any woman. Mrs1 Sickles' paramour.
it is possible, he may have been?but
her seducer, never. Not only does Mr. Key'>
character forbid the possibility of any such supposition,
but the charoctor of Mrs. Sickles is
siij strongly to favor the truth of the opposite
conclusion. Her reputation is said to have been
less than doubtful, by a New York Journal,
whose statements upon that point we copied
yesterday, it is verv plainly intimated that her
real seducer was her husbind. and that her
marriage came barely in time to cover bnt not
conceal her shame. The very nature and extent
of that criminal intimacy with Mr. Key.
which is relied upon by Mr. Sieklesin justification
of his crime, argues a woman wholly lost
to shame and to every sense of virtue. In one
word?hers is a case, according to her own
showing?not of seduction?but of prostitution.
Tnr Dook or Job.?Tho lx?ok of Job is generally
regarded as the most perfect specimen
of the poetry of the Hebrews. It is alike picturesque
in the delineation of individual phenomena.
and artistically skillful in the didac'ic
arrangement of the whole work. In all the
modern languages in which the Book of Job has
be-n translated, its images, drawn from the
natural scencrv of the East, leaves a deep iin
pression on the mind. - The Lord walketh on
the bights of waters, on the ridges of the wave,
towering high beneath the force of the wind."
The morning red has colored the margin of
the earth, aud variously formed the covering of
the cloud*, as the hand of man holds the yielding
clay." The h^bitsof animals arc describe!,
jn. for instance, those of the wildiuss, the horse,
the buffalo. rhin?>ceros an l the crocodile, thc
eagle and the ostrich. We see "the pure ether
I spread, during the bent of the south wind, as
a melted miror over the parched desert."
The poetic literature <?f the Hebrews is not
deficient in variety of form, for while the Hebrew
poetry breathes a warlike enthusiasm,
from Joshua to Samuel, the little book of the
gleaner Ruth pr< ?nts us with a charming and
exquisite picture of nature, tloethe, at the
period of bis enthusiasm for the East. spoke of
it-as the loveliest specimen of epic and idly
poetry which we possess."?lluniloWt Co.\virts.
