WEDNESDAY;. May 6, 1891,
Why renew the memory of the
great strife? We might simply
answer, Because we cannot help
it; we must remember what is
very near to our hearts. The
cause of our trouble is in the
Crave, and through the rave
our feelings must find expres
sion. The true comfort of i
great sorrow is in its expression
There is a joy in keeping the
grave refreshed in generous re
memb ranee; and when we throw
flowers on the graves of our
fallen braves we find there is a
balm in the act that goes to our
very hearts. The power of nieui
ory is in some respects the most
' important of our acuities The
ancient said that Memory was
the mother of the Muses. There
is a delightful feeling of ideal
ity reviving all our, generous
sympathies with those who have
passed away, while we are thus
in the exercise of calling up
their memories. This senti
ment is one of the most noble in
our nature., it has, moreover,
a tendency to incite to the study
of the highest art. OurAmeri
can art was dull and languish
ing for many years, but it be
gan to revive from the feeling
that found expression in our
cemeteries. Be true, then, we
say, to this sentiment; con
tinue to honor the sacred shrines
of the dead, and the spirit of
progress will be mighty in pro
portion to the ideality of our
remembrance. Through the
memorials of the dead we shall
also learn to study and honor
the majesty of great principles.
Why did these men fall! Was
it because they were moved
merely by a great-impulse, or
the spirit of party faction? N.
Let us award the glory where it
is due to the fallen braves. They
fought for what they consider
ed great principles.
Commutations of punishment
are becoming too common. The;
object of punishment is two-
fold; it is a penalty for gui't ia-j
flicted upon the criminal, and it
is an example and a yarning to
others. A criminal adjudgvAJ
worthy of death or for imprison
ment for a term of years has no
claim to commutation or par
don. For many causes the
impression of crime fading from
the public mind, ths continued
appeils of friends of the crim
inal for mercy, the so' ten ing of
the Executive heart, or his wear
iness under solicitation, the
chances that a criminal server
out his life term are small, and
at the end of a time he is turn
ed out again with the mark of
the convict upon him, exclude 1
from honest employment, hard
enea in crime ana ready 4
much from necessity as from
inclination to repeat his often
ces. :
We do not wish to irttryd
upon our new Governor: hi
duties and responsibilities are
heavy, we think no harm can
eomo from the expression of a
caution on this important que
''the poor ye have always with
yoit," and Jt goes to work to
find them out, and as far .as
"possible, equalize the gifts of
fortune, and aims at least to
drive the gaunt shadow of want
from the door of the hopless
sufferer. " ,
Every community should feel
that in. giving countenance to
such an order it is countennnc
ing its Guardian Angel. It
should strengthen the hands
and uphold the arms of thosw
few, who detaching themselves
from the pleasures and trivial
pursuits of life, give themselves
up to the charge of humanity,
and the relief ot human suffer
ing. - -

Harrison and his family will
'hardly spend the summer, in
Washington. Imagine, if you
can, th$ dullness of Washing
ton for four long months, till
he comes back with his. cigar,
The deserts or the far-off moun
tain peaks are nothing to the
stagnation of thecapitalm mid
summer, with Presideut and
Cabinet members : gone. The
Democrats say they will show
the country in 1802 that a Pres
ident can live .in .Washington
throug i the summer, and that
ho will do as the old Presidents
did, Lincoln, Buchanan, Pierce,
Filmore, Polk, and Van Buren,
ono and all, remumed at the
capita! the year rouud, with,
possibly, a trij of. a fortnight
away. Harrison won't stay,
and his associates and inferiors
follow his example.
If the result of the next Pres
ident! 1 election depends upon
the prudence of fie South, the
victory is already won; for ur
receive a serious chock. On. the
other hand, if the railroads bo-
come grinding, monopolies, dis
regarding thi convenience and
the rights of their patrons, they
will stir up a hostile sentiment
and unfriendly legislation,, and
the prejudices of juries in the
courts will make their pathway
a hard one to travel. Mutual
fairness and justice will be
found the best policy for ov'
different classes and interests.

A little personal pique, a bit
of wounded .vanity, a sudden
flame of anger, often undoes the
most substantial and faithful
work, and nullifies the most in
telligent and wise action. It is
one painful thing in experience
that effort is often defeated by
these small, purely personal;
and often momentary feelings,
which are generally unintelli
gent and unwise. Life 'would
be freed from some of its most
painful features if men always
acted to each other on a basis of
real justice and intelligence and
left their small personal feelings
and prejudice out of sight A
man's work ought to be judged
by itself and for itself alone and
the strength of a man's position
ought to rest solely upon what
he is able to do And yet most
of us are constantly neutraliz
ing the best work of others be
cause it's not dona in our way
and are constantly failing to do
justice to others became

dices against them. The really

We read today a very timel
article in the Kentucky Trades
Journal upon this subject. It
was mainly upon the questio
of business cl immjs arraying one
against the other.
A very good fable tells us how
the stomach and the different
members of the body once fel
cut, and determined not to have
anything to do with each other,
ft. .. i . a .

exulted over the fact that Vi'i
fctornach wou d be unable to get
eny supplies, and the stomac
was equally resolved not t
nourish the members. But rf
ter the fight had progressed
little while the stomach foun
t its surprise that it needed the
help of a hea l and hands an
f-t, and those members disco v
erel that they were growing
weaker and, ia fact, could not
tjst along without the stomach,
S they made up their dillY r
enccs. and all was well again
We may learn something from
this old story. The proJucer

We sow and then hear of and
read of North Carolinians who
have bj past years emigrated ti
other States, ? especially tha
Vv est, returning to their old
mother State to share in her
new prosperity. No doubt many
do so, and if those who have
gone from her to other sections
should all return, North Caro
Una, in that case, would Tiave
the largest population of any
State in the Union. Whilst it
is idle to indulge any such hope,
yet we know that many have
already returned and that hun
