Your average member of the mundane Society of Friends doesn’t ditler materially from the man who has hustled thro a seis mic disturbance. Both are earth-Quakers.

The editor ot ItiB l-kek Press was born on the -'l-t ot March. No wonder Old Sol crossed the line and restored the equality of the nights and days. "There is no magnetism about l barley Faulkner,” observed a Morgantown Democrat Thursday when the news came of his election. —M»r*tnn!' uu There’s a magnitude about him that s an offset to all the i-uts <>f the day. England finally refuses to let the Gate City Guards of Atlanta pass through her territory on their proposed European tramp, but Capt. Burke and the boys are hopeful of getting there all the same.

It'- a bad egg for a bad song —retributivejustice, indeed. It may not have occurred to you before, but the men whose la-iiionably-garbed wives are tied back the tightest are themselves the most cruelly tied Town. Curious coinci dence, isn't it?—but " there’s a tide in the affairs of men,” iVc., for all that. And now the question is being agitated, have the Inter State Commi—ion any authority to impure into the nature and construction ol the doughnuts sold in railroad restaurants?— ItHsAl 1' It s .i / (7 H't .

One of those sweet “Treasury girls” down in Washington has, it is said, ju-t re ceived *100,000 for a hundred-acre farm near Birmingham, Alabama. As usual: coal ore. She is now iti a position to snap her fingers in the lace of the civil service commission. The Republican editors of tin -mite are drawing long breaths now. They have been so afraid that somebody would be corrupted, you know. And editor M.lsou is short of breath from rushing into print with appre hensions that Senator Faulkner will tall in to the hands of scheming politicians and railroad lobbyists. 11 costs So or f2o, according to the size of it, to kiss a girl in l>ruid Hill Park, Bal timore—if caught in the oscillatory act by the police. But a fellow isn’t expected to wake the watchman, however regardless he may be of a five or a twenty-five in view of a labial expression of his devotion to the girl or his obedience to the law. It is rather amusing to his friends to see Sen ator Faulkner spoken of in some of the pajters as an unmarried man and classed as one ot the Benedicts of the Senate.— M : ' Quite a number of newspapers have fallen into the error of supposing that a Benedict is an unmarried man. The richest benedic tion of God’s grace to Senator Faulkner is the wife of hi- bosom—the dream of his young love. «• ♦ Gov. Wilson sent word to the Senate on the last day of its session that he was “ wil ling to quit if it was.” It was a polite way to “holler nufT.” The Senate adjourned. We suppose the Governor “ quit ’’ and went borne as we have not heard anything from him subsequent to his remark anterior to which he and the Senate pommeled each other without gloves or regard to grace, mercy or ceremony. The Wheeling ImttUij'nctr takes the right view when it expresses the opinion that it makes no difference that the Governor re fuses to certify to the election of a Senator. If the election is good, it will be* sufficient that it is certified by the presiding officers of the two Houses If it were otherwise the Governor, if so disposed, could always pre vent a Senator-elect from taking his seat. From the recent Army of the Cumber land re-union at Washington we catch three echoes—three promising echoes—that once for all assure us of a land reconciled and at perfect peace! Listen: District Comniis sioner Webb expressed “ unbounded regret that he bad uot stood fighting shoulder to shoulder with the army that put down the rebellion.” Col. Duflield condemned the “ time serving and trimming ” which yield ed to the popular clamor for letting bygones be bygones, and spoke of President Davis as “ the arch traitor, hunted down and cap tured in ignominious disguise.’ And ex Governor Curtain said he had “ nothing but the most supreme contempt for the men who j coucocted and conceived the attempt to o verthrow liberty,’’ and, alluding to Gen. Sheridan’s course in the Valley of \ irginia, said he “ thanked heaven we had generals who knew how to hit hard and kept on hit ting until they had finished the work.” Some of those fellows over the line nexer will forgive us because it took them tour years to wear us out whipping them. Old Governor Curtin is only vexed because the Southern people are making pig iron and selling it in the North for less than the Pennsylvanians can make and sell it; and as some of them realize the South’s amazing advance in manufactures and wonderful strides towards wealth and material progress they extract comfort from abuse of Jeffer son Davis. The venerable Dr. J. B. McFerrin, of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, died at Nashville May 10. of pheumonia, aired nearly SO years. He was born in Ruther ford county, Tenn.—his father, Col. James McFerrin, a native of Virginia, having moved thither three years before deceased’* birth, the Rev. Doctors mother was a Miss IVrry whose father, a Presbyterian elder, died in Virginia. Dr. McFerrin en tered the ministry at eighteen and was ad mitted to the Tennessee Conference at twen ty-five. As editor for eighteen years of the i ■ i Advoc tie, office r of the Nashville book concern, projector of the many Meth odist institutions at Nashville and writer of a History of Methodism in Tennessee, etc , the lamented divine was thoroughly identi fied with church interests in his native State. In fact he occupied every position in his church except the Episcopacy, and was a member of every General Conference of his church. An editor says the business men of a Western town have presented their editor with a fine horse and buggy as an evidence of their appreciaPon of his paper. That’s tin* “ out West ” way. Here-they know our steed deceased suddenly on account of indigestion, and we've been jumping on their bump of appreciation with both feet once a week ever since, but we are pedes trian' 'till—pedestrians from Pedestrv—and predestinated to be for some time. Like King James' army we march up the hill and then march down again. Foot it! We can foot anything but our bills, and are not a “kicker," either, in the latt**r day sense. Jefferson Davis has addressed a commu nication to the Louisville Qturier-Journal, reviewing Lord Wo Be ley's recent article on Gen. Lee. Mr. Davis, though now in the sere ami yellow leaf, writes with all the force, vigor and clearness of youth. He demolishes Wolselev’s facts, smashes his arguments, ridicules hi' deductions and on the whole does up Brittain's “only general" in a manner that would delight even the sardonic intellect of Labouchere. Gen. Sherman could have informed Wolscley that it was next to “monkeying" with a buzz-saw to tread on the corns of the ex chief of the confederacy. The following good one on genial George Sarg< is .oing the rounds: When Sar gent went to Charleston ju?t before the opening of the special session, Gov. Wilson met him on the street, greeted him cordial ly and said: “Sargent if you will desert the Senatorial ring and conic over on the side of the people, you could have any po sition you wanted in West Virginia.” “Governor,” George responded genially, “that remark reminds me of an historical interview between Satan am! the Saviour. Satan took the Lord up on a high mouu tain -in 1 offered him the whole earth and he didn't own an acre.” There should be a bonus attached to the office <>f representative from Jefferson coun ty. To be elected a delegate from Jeffer son, is equivalent, it seems, to capturing the goos which lays the golden egg. Col. Chew - turn will come next, if this run of good fortune holds out.—Charleston Star. lie hope those who capture the fabled fowl will not be prompted by cupidity to kill her. By reports from Washington we learn that Judge John Blair Hoge is confined to hi- room in that city from the effects of a severe fall sustained Saturday week. He was attacked with vertigo while walking upon the street and fell, his head striking a * hard substance. He was carried to his room insensible. The wound, a gash in the head, . is serious. An ex-Union soldier writes the Alexandria < ft r "• from Chicago that “Sheridan is, was and always w 11 be what Gen Rosser says he is,' | an 1 relates how this miserable Philip chilled ( the 1 itarnal feelings evoked at a certain Me- j morial Day meeting by declaring that “ we ; should not be in a hurry t*> forgive the South." ! Re. - oi the South wont wait on Sheridan's ! *' forgiveness." ' King M'wanyu, of Africa, i< eighteen years of ; age and has one thousand wives. He’s a big- 1 ger man than Solomon.

Edwards, of Illinois Special Dispatch to the Baltimore Winchester, Va., May 10.— Win chester Times will to-morrow punt l ie fol lowing letter: “ Warsaw, III., May 7.—Editor of the Winchester rimes—Dear Sir: Having seen extracts of r. letter from Gen. Thos. L. Rosser to Major Holmes Conrad in refer ence to Gen. 1 T. Sheridan, I trust you will publish this letter from me, though it is unknown to and unauthorized by Gen. Sheridan. Such soldiers as Gen. Rosser and Major Conrad will surely acknowledge it to be a soldier’s duty to obey the orders of those in authority over him. I know that Gen. Sheridan, while in command of the Federal forces in the Shenandoah Val ley, was acting under an order from the War Department, and signed by Gen. Hal leek, chief of staff, to desolate the valley from Winchester as far as possible towards Staunton. I quote the order: “To destroy all forage and provisions, all barns and outhouses and all unoccupied dwellings, houses and fences. In short, you will make such complete desolation that should a crow attempt the passage of the valley lte would have to carry his own subsistence or starve on the route.’ The object of this order from the War Department was to prevent Gen. Lee from sending troops in light marching order to subsist on the country through tlie valley to threaten Washington and interfere with the siege of Richmond, and it was considered a necessary war measure. “Whenever our army occupied a place where there were both Union and disunion elements, as at Winchester, there we found much bitter feeling. Wounded soldiers from Crook’s Army of Western Virginia, in hospitals at Winchester, after the battle of the Opequon, one very windy day set tire to your town, near the old postofhee. It so happened that one of my regiments were made up mostly of Philadelphia fire laddies, and their colonel was an old fire chief. I ordered them to save your beauti ful town, and by great exertion they suc ceeded. Gen. Sheridan warmly approved this. He permitted the Confederate hos pitals in Winchester to retain their own nurses, not even placing them under guard, and he treated them in every way as well as our own wounded were treated. I will refer in this to ex-Medical Director Colonel Love, C. S. A. War in any cases is cruel and barbarous, but I am sure that General Itosser would not knowingly find fault with General Sheridan for obeying positive or ders. Thank (rod, it is over, and with best wishes for your people and your lovely city, 1 am sincerely yours, “Oliver Kdwarks, “Late brevet major-general, formerly com manding United States forces, Winches ter, Ya.” ••//" the Union is Ever to hr Broken, Let the Other SiOe Break It.” New Orleans, La., May 13.—A special to the Picayune from Meridian, Miss., says: At 11 o’clock yesterday morning a public reception was given Mr. Jefferson Davis at the residence of Col. J. R. McIntosh, where lie is stopping. At o o’clock last evening a banquet and reception was given in the Court House grounds. Mr. Davis made a short address, in which he thanked the peo ple of Meridian for their most cordial re ception. The second toast was to “Jefferson Davis, the soldier, statesman and champion of Southern rights.” It was responded to by Hon. Thomas. 11. Woods. When Mr. Da vis rose to reply he was greeted with long, continued applause. He began by apolo gizing for the short address he would make them and said that he was quite fatigued from the day’s exercise. Continuing, he said: “1 am unable to treat this theme as it should be without premeditation. What was the army and navy of the South? It was the patriotism of persons who hared their breasts to bullets in defending a con stitutional right. With great navies and armies against us, we formed regiments and battallions. At their head wo placed Lee ,i> their commander. With inferior num* hers of men we marched onward -fighting for our rights, and battle after battle was fought ami won, but the Northern historians never conceded that and indulged iu tri umphs of mind over matter. Hut now those scenes and incidents have passed, and they only live in memory and history. United you are now, and if the Union is .wcr to be broken let the other side break it. 1'lie army of the South will shine forever iround the camp-fires, and will still shine : > our children and children’s children, l'he truth we fought for shall not encourage ,-ou ever to fight again, hut keep your word n good or evil.” Howard’s “Life of Henry Ward Hcech >r” has been issued, and it fully meets the “.xpectation which awaited it. It is a re narkably bright and interesting hook, coni ng as it does, from one of the most accom plished of journalists, and concerning as it loes, one of the brightest of men. One of its most remarkable features is, i hat it gives u< an insight into Mr. Beech r’s own mind and heart, such as nothing nit the breathing of his inmost nature to tis most trusted and life-long friends could it an author to present. It is in truth a tuique hook ; most ably prepared and full if interest from first to finale. It contains ! . perfect portrait in steel, and many other ; •eiiutiful illustrations, and in typography, >aper, and binding is a superior hook, well rorthy of an immense circulation. Had Mr. Beecher attempted an autobiog aphv, he could not with permeditation, I aye put so much of his real nature into it s is given so spontaneously in this volume. Judge Faulkner is a young man in the ill vigor of health and of acknowledged hility. He is also considered one of the est organizers in the State, and our Re ubliean friends may make up their minds » have Kenna and Faulkner for the next ( ) years in the U. S.
