SV’Officlal paper of the City, County, Ter ritory and United .States. i&-Advertisers will make note of the fact that Tjie Leader has a larger circula tion than any paper jmblished in Wyo ming. New Minister to Uayti. Professor John M. Langston, who has just decided to accept the Haytian mission, tendered him by the President some days ago, is the most polished and literary of all the colored race of this country. lie graduated from Oberlin College when quite young, and with considerable honor, and lias since pursued, unremittingly, reading, study and research in the fields of literature, science, politics, etc. Possessed of a keen, bright intellect, with polished manners, and witli a mind stored with extensive information on all matters pertaining to the duties of the office jusi conferred upon him, his appoint ment to the Haytian mission is recog nized as the best that could have been made from his own nationality. The Old Spirit of Hate. The sorry exhibition of petty sec tional spite in the dismissal of North ern men from Professorships in the East Tennessee University, simply because they were Northern men, cannot be too severely condemned. That university was in a very dilapidated condition at the close of the war. It greatly needed Northern vim and learning to get it once more on its feet, .and Northern professors rushed to its rescue. But now the entire number, six in all, have to walk the plank to make room for Southern men. Professor Burton, a graduate of Yale, and afterwards trained in the universities of Paris, Berlin and Heidelberg, is turned out to make room for a Mississppi physician. Whether this physician is awarded the place for meritorious conduct in refus ing to attend the mutilated]Chisholms does not appear. Another seat taken from these Northern men is given to a Virginia adventurer, now serving the Khedive of Egypt. The worst feature of the whole tiling is that it shows a return of the bitter and malignant spirit of the times of slavery. If such is the condition of affairs in East Tennessee, what must it he in the Gulf States and in other sections where the old animus was always much more con spucious than in the vicinity of Knoxville? The South is making a very grave mistake in thus fanning the old fires of bate and persecution. Indus trially, financially, and educationally it is making an enormous blunder. [Al bany Journal. The Slowest of the Slow. A wonderful train came up yesterday morning at 3 o’clock from the Harlem river, which it had left Thursday noon. There were ten platform and four box cars drawn by two antediluvian and fearfully dirty machines called locomo tives, one being from the Long Island South Side and the other from the Pennsylvania railroads, and bound for a Nova Scotia railroad for further ser vice. The entire trip was a chapter of ridiculous casualties. They had a liot box every mile, were in everybody’s way, and got the boilers so full at New Haven that dirty water was shot from the stacks all over the engineer, who made a few appropriate and evan gelical remarks. Out of New Haven the head-light expired, when the fire man proposed connecting the head light witli the smoke-box and using the coal gas for illuminating. At Yales ville the fuel followed the head-light, and rail fences were ruthlessly used to get up steam, this taking an hour, which the engineer improved by fishing off the bank for crabs, and, with per haps sixty pounds of steam, the train shoved ahead with one engine, after a lively fight with local grangers for more fence rails. The steam gauges were broken, the lamps gone, and both driv er and fireman went it blind in the dark. The brakemcn say they stopped at every gypsy camp to wake folks up witli blasts from the most diabolical whistle ever blown in the valley, and that the gypsies came out, young men and maidens, old men and children,and swore till the air was blue, and threw stones. When this train reached this city all hands sang the doxology, and advised the river road engineer, who took charge, to watch the wheels care fully to see which way they moved, and that an attachment was coming on for stolen fences. Atlast accounts the train had got to Chicopee. | Springfield Re publican. Distinguished Visitors at Long branch. Gath, the correspondent of the Phil adelphia Times, says in a letter from Long Branch, July 18: “1 saw a fattish, well-made, Orien tal type of young man, with a very lit tle German accent. He wore a grayj ish-brown chequered suit, sack coat, scarf pin and round, basin-formed white hat. Ilis mustache and small goatee were jet black, but thin and soft. It was tlie cheery, effervescent, perfectly human Tom Nast. We smiled but once. He was afraid lie was to he interviewed. ' 1 told him to observe that there was no room on my forehead to write “Fraud.” “Be sides,” said I, “the average statesman and great man would never think of half, the things they say but for the alti tude of my questions. I raise them to a lofty plane, like the Switchback rail road, and let them run to their own level, switching them off here and there.” So I asked him if, witli all his well-merited reputation, he did not find the field of design far more limited than in his rosy, dawn dreams. “Yes,” said Nast, “the American public hails any celebrity like a croco dile witli its moutli open and labeled inside the throat ‘welcomel’ We are all for the day in the country. In Europe a man’s achievements in art or belles lettres or design receive an in scription, a record. It is not so here. Yesterday is without honor. YY e subside faster than we rise. Fame here is a drowning man's swim. ” Nast, however, is not a melancholy person. He is instinctive witli ideas and the execution of them. lie laughed when he came to the crocodile figure above, and said he and intended to make a picture of it and had until that moment forgotten it. Perhaps he will call it The Interviewer, and sketch it “T. Nast: Welcomel” Anything to make genius bappyl Nast Is at once a fine reporter, an industrious reader and a strong, ex pressive designer. He knows what is going on; he takes nobody’s opinion; he sees the pictorial key of a situation and sketches it focaliy. He is said to work with a rapid anger, the indigna tion setting the pencil on fire. So does every true artist work witli a burning glass and despise counsel. Counsel is for business, not for art. The small pattern of critics and editors in thecity of New York, all of them trembling factotums of commercial machines, the tags put on advertisements, excites no envy in a free spirit. Nast was able, after some opposition, to demonstrate liis individual spirit and prejudice ill a pictorial paper that would have lan guished without such geni us. YVitliout approving of his themes, the treatment was superb. He drew from a head as rapid to appropriate as his hand to ex ecute; both vehement. Amidst many rich men, indistinguishable from each other, the eye at the watering place picks out tliis young man and says with Solomon: “The merchandise of wisdom is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold.” This is no more understood in America than the Hebrew language ex cept by artists and poor fellows, hut it is true. General YVasliington couldn’t tell a lie, and in this respect lie differed ma terially from General YVasliington Dis patches. A Connecticut infant, witli a habit of putting everything into its mouth, has demonstrated that the ixitato-bug is not poisonous. There’s a women in California 140 years old who claims to be the oldest woman in the world. Queer claim for a woman to make. The Free Press says that a Detroit artist has painted a sea-turtle so natur ally that a beholder can smell mutton broth in the air around him. Corruption is sapping the very foun dations of society. A tramp witli a wooden leg was around last week, begging for a second-hand pair of boots. Some men are like cats. You may stroke the fur the right way for years and hear nothing but the purring; but accidentally tread on tlie tail, and all memory of former kindness is obliter ated. The Foe of Pain. The friend of suffering humanity—the enemy of disease, and the salvation of the patient brute, is Mexican Mus tang Liniment. There is no sore it will not heal, no ache or pain it will not banish.
