A colony o Massachusetts emigrants are
about to pitch their tenia near Manchester,
Coffee county, Tennesste. There ia a fine
water-power there, and in time they may
male it the centre of a prosperous trade.
A terrible and destructive tornado visited
Marshal county in this State, about one
hundred milea west of Leavenworth, Fri
day evening last, resulting in g'eat destruc

The Leristown (Mo ) Journal tells a long
story of a venerable and respected citizen
of Sooth Paris, Mo., who dreamed that he
had found a quantity of -liver money in a
marshy place on his farm, and taking hi
shovel in the morning went out and dug
up about 51.S0O in silver coins.
One of the strongest papers, that has been
given to the public in connection with the
crusade against Senator Ingalls, is the open
letter from f fon. James F. Legate, pub
lished elsewhere this morning. Mr. Legate
knows all about the "true inwardness" of
this case, and he gives the conspirators a
broadside which they will find some trouM:
in answering.

The stamp sales of the Leavenworth Post

The dignified course pursued by Senalrr
Ingalls iu refusing to demand an investiga
tion of the charge preferred again-t him
by a few characterless fellows, is approved
by tLe leading Republican papers of the
country. The Cincinnati Times says:
Several Democratic papers are indulging
in bitter abue of Senator Ingalls kcau-e
he did not demand an investigntion as toon
as the charges of bribery and corruption
were made against him in the Senate, and
for filing a statement demurring to the
jurisdiction r.f that body. The t-'enator's
course is iwrfeclly projier. It needs no de
fense. He was acquitted at.d completely
exonerated by the Kansas House et Ilepre
sntatives, aller a searching investigation.
.Now, if he is to be harrsstd by a further
inquiry, instituted by malicious enemies
and conduct) d fur psni-an purpose, the
whole burden of the disgraceful business
should rest on his accusers.

Now that the motey is sub. cribed for the
building of the new theatre, and its con
struction is certain, the first question to de
cide is its location.
All parties agree that the correr of
Fourth and Delaware is the very best loca
tion, but as it is imosible to get that place
the next 1-est is as near that point as it ia
practicable to secure the lots. The places
named are Delaware, Muttn Fifth and
Sixth, east side; Main, b.-tween Delaware
and Shawnee; ee.tiih or north side of
Shawnee, between Third end Fourth; north
east correr of Delaware and Second streets,
and southwest corner Cherokee and Fourth
streets. The first two places are generally
considered as too much on one side of the
center of business; any one of the three-last
would be acceptable. A location on Dela
ware, west of Fifth, would be very much
like the location of Odd Fellows Hall,
would not be worth fifty cents on the cost,
and would not accommodate the peop'e.

This is the fifth or sixth case of hanging
by the mob that has occurred in Kansas
since any thing of the sort has happened in
Missouri. Only a couple ot months ago a
negro was hung and burned by a mob in
Fort Scott, and now Leavenworth county
comes forward with the lynching scrape.
Thus two of the finest and most populous
counties of the eastern tier, where a hand
come schoolhouse sits on every knoll, and
where the traveler is rarely, if ever, out of
sight of railroads, churches atd Tillages,

Itis rather humilitating to the citizens
of Kansas to be obliged to read such items as
the foregoing, and especially humilitating
to read them in Jlitsiuri papers. The
Fource of the rebuke intensifies its sting.
But we cannot deny the justice of it.
While we are boasting of our own superior
civilization, and wringing our hands in
agony over the acts of violence that we
read of in the south, we are furnishing to
the world specimens of lawlessness equal to
the average act of barbarism that every
now and then we hear of in the south. .
The Philadelphia Times discovers un
mistakable signs upon every hand of the
return of general and fubstantial prosper
ity. One of the signs referred to is the fact
that there has been a decided advance in
silks, during the last teu days, and another,
and very important one is that cotton and
other goods of prime necessity haTe been
steadily advancing also. The general
aspect of trade, and especially the trade
that supplies the sreat mass of the people
with their wants, points to a certain and
permaccnt advance in prices, proving that
the demand is rapidly growing, and that
the ability of consumers to purchase is
eteadily increasing. This condition of the
market cannot be in any degree specula
tive. The mirti of business where con
sumers of fabrics deal, have none of the
qualities of gunbling Block markets, and
and the one explanation of increased
demand and increased price is the increas
ed prosperity of the country. Unless all
signs are at fault, we think, with the Times,
that we may look for a steady advance of
prices, not only for silks and articles of
luxury, but for all other goods which enter
iato the daily wants of the community. It
is quite probable that the cheap prices of the
present will not be known again for ten or
twenty years to come, as the country never
was better prepared for a long cireer of the
Bost healthful prosperity.
Thera appears ia the loptka CrmnomnuIA
notice of a meeting of the Medical Exam-
Kansas Medical Society
on Monday next, at
Topeka. This Board
is provided for by a law enacted last winter
intended to regulate the practice of medi
cine in the State, and was appointed by the
Kansas Medical Society at its recent meet
ing in Atchison. The Board consists of the
following named physicians who are well
known to the profession throughout the
state: D. ,V. Stormont, of Topeka; W.
Cochrane, of Atchifon ; C C. Furley, of
Wichita; K. Morri, of Lawrence ; C. H.
Grubor.of Beloit; G. W. Halderman, of
Paola; and S. F. N'eely, of this city.
The law provides that every practitioner
of medicine, according to the Allopathic
School, ehall b possessed of a certificate
issutd by the Ibard, which he shall have
recorded in the effice of the clerk of
the county in which he resides, in
a book kept for the purpose which shall be
open to the public for inspection during
the regular effice Lours of said officer.
The law provides for two forms of cer
tificates. Oae for iersons in possession of
diplomas or licences, the other lor candi
dates examined by the Board. The penal
ty for not complying with the provisions
of the act in a fine of not less than ?30 or
more than 5000, or imprisonment in the
county jail for a period of not hs than 30
days nor more than one year.
Those who propose to practice medicine
in the State according to the homeopathic
or eclectic schools are not required to go
before the allopathic board, but will have
to pass examinations btfore boards designa
ted bj their respective societies, as provi
de! by the terms of the law referred to.
The statute should be rigidly enforced,
that the people may have whatever protec"
tion the law is able to give them against
hnmbuggery and empiricism.

Kansas City Journal, 31
From the experience of Bev. Henry Ward
Beecher, as chaplain of the Thirteenth
Brooklyn Uegiuient, at Montreal, on the oc
casion of the Queen's sixtieth birthday, it
would be a good thirg to put more of our
divines in uniform. He was the central
figure of the entire eccaion, and preached
a S'rmon with the world as an audience.
He was one of the boys from lie'inning to
end, but he brought the entire fete up to his
level, and went through it all,without color
of reproach to the clerical cloth even if it
had brass buttons on it.
They Will llnr to be Taken Care or
St. Loots Uepubllcau, 30.J
If the exodus manipulators think
their whole work will be done when they
send chartered steamers down the river, to
run off all the deluded negroes that can be
enticed from the Southern plantations by
the glowing promises of free farms and free
mules in Kansas, they are very much mis
taken. That is a device that cannot be let
alone to work of itself when the negroes
have been got to Kansas, and if it is, will
most surelv return to plague its inventors
with a vengeance. They mu-t take care of
the people they lead oil from their homes
for something more than two years, or they
will furnish the best sort of material for
working up campaign literature in the
next presidential campaign.

chiefly significant for its adrnitsion that be
is not unwilling to be considered as a can
didate tor the Presidency. It might appear
that his aspiration to unite all the national
elements that contributed to the suppres
sion of the rebellion is something more;
but there is not much in this. That is the
desire of all Republicans; but the way to
do it without vieldinz all that would make
the union worth while has not yet been dis
covered. Lincoln, Johnson, Grant and
Hayes each aspired to the same thing in
different ways, and failed. What is Secre
tary Sherman's scheme? He does not tell
us. The letter is vague, after the fashion
of such documents. Perhaps, after all,
that is a merit. It is too early to announce
a programme or construct a platform. In
order to interpret the general phrases in
the letter, we must have recource to what
we know of Mr Sherman's record and cast
of mind. If he should happen to be

A Fight With a Rear and a Lneky
Away over and up in Pouglas county,
Oregon, on Wedneeday two weeks ago, G.
W. Smith shouldered bis Henry rifle and
strolled into the woods. There was snow
on the ground and tracks bear cracks on
the snow. Two miles across a valley and
np a hill the hunter followed the trail.
All at once a huge cinnamon bear appeared
in the path, walking leie nrely along. The
crack of the Henry, a sharp reverberation
among the crags, the thunderous answer of
the beast, and the hunter took to his heels.
On bounded bruin Smith turned. In a ter
rible taoment the bear clo-ed and knocked
the rifle into the air and its owner upon the
grouijd. As he fell Smith heard the
clear report of a riflle. Stunned as
he was he thanked his lucky stars that
some kind and friendly bat-d had
made itself felt in the rick of tiaae, for the
bear was lying by hfs side dead. Recov
ering, Smith looked far and near for his
rescuer. He saw so one. Much puzzled,
he picked up his rifle and looked into the
but eight bullets,
and the mystery was explained
In start
ing on the hunt, he had put ten bullets in,
had fired one shot, and no it must have
been that the rifle discharged itself in the
lall, providentially killing the bear.
Rankrnptey of India.
London Cor. Philadelphia Telegraph.
It is tt -rly forty years ago that Macau
lay astonished the men of his day by de
claring that India wa, in reality, poorer
than Ireland, if this were the case in 1S41
how mueh more so is it in 1S79! For thir
ty-eight years IndK has steadily been
growing poorer; both taxation and debt
have increased, while the wretched mtllicns
whose government, without their having a
voice in the matter England has undertak
en, have been growing year by year less
able to support the intolerab'e burden
which an Imperial Government imposes
upon, them. Few Englishmen have anv
adequate conception of the wretchedness of
the poverty-stricken wretches from whom
JCo-3,000,000 is annually squeezed. The
India Government has, at length, awoke to
the terrible pas to which it has brought
the country, and announces its intention of
at once inaugurating financial reforms.
If the Government is really in earnest,
and not merely playing with the
matter, the nature of there reforms will be
to reduce the extienses of the countrv by
employing natives more extensively, Euro
peans at lower salaries, and the cutting
down of the monstrous military expenses.
Should such a policy as this be purrued
radical it may be termed we may look for
most strenuous and combined opposition
from all clashes of "vested interests," who
will risa to a man at the cry, "our craft is
in danger." India sutlers from a kind of
absenteeism; she is connected, it is true,
with England, but witha result disastrous
to herself. The mother country receives
every year about 30,000,000 of her pro
ducts without returning lo her pauperized
dependency any commercial equivalent.
The great Radical Political Economist,
John Stuart Mill, foresaw the crisi, which
we are evidently now approaching, over
twenty years ago. His voice was not
heeded, but the truth of his prophesy is
every day becoming more painfully appar
The CSS Train.
It was during ;h reign cf the good Caliph
when Abou Taruerlik came to the City of
Bagdad, threw his gripsack on tl e counter,
and, as he registered, spoke cheerfully unto
the clerk, saying:
"A sample-room on the first floor, and
send my keyster up right awsy, and call
me for the C:2S train east in the morniDg."
And Basler el Jab, the clerk, looked at
him, but went away to the mirror and gazed
at his new diamond.
And Abou Tamerlik hied him forth, and
went into the booths and bazars and laid
hold upon the merchants, and enticed them
into his room, and spread ont his samples
and besought them to buy. And when
night was come he slept. Because, he said,
it is a dead town, and there is no place
And before the second watch of the night
Kbumul em Uhp, the porter, smote on the
panels of the door, and cried aloud :
"O, Abou Tamerlik, ari.e and dress, for
li is irain-tinis. -
And Abau arose, and girt his raiment
about him, and hastened down stairs, and
crept into the 'bus.
And he marvelled that he was so sleepy,
becau-eheknew he wi-ut to bed exceedingly
early and marvellously sober.
And when they got "to the depot, lo ! it
was the mail west, and it wa 10:2-5 r. M.
And Abou Tamerlik swore, and reached
for the orter that he rai;ht smite him, and
ne said unto him :
"Carry me back to my room and see
that thou call me at 0:-S x m., or thou
And, ere he had been asleep even until
the midnight witch, Rhumul cm Uhp
smote agaiu upon the pinels cf his door
and cried aloud :
"Awake, Abou Tamerlik, for the time
waneth, and the train stayeth for no man
Awake and haste, for slumber overtook
thy servant, and the way is long and the
'bus gone 1 '
And Abou Tamerlik arose and dressed,
and girded up his loins, and set forth with
great sjieed, for his head was anxious.
Nevertheless he gave Rhumul em Uhp a
quarter, and made him carry his grip, and
he cursed him for a driveling laggard.
And, when they were come to the tram,
it was 11:46" p. in., and it was a way-freight
going scuth.
And Abou Tamerlik fell upon Rhumul
em Uhp , and smote htm, and treated him
roushlv, and said :
' O pale-ray as of all aies, the Prophet
pity tine if thou calltst me once more
before the G.'IS a. m. east."
And he gat him-elf into his bed.
Now, when sleep fell heavily upon Abou
Tamerlik, for Le was sore discouraged,
Rhumul em Uhp Licked fiercely against
the panel of his door and said:
"O Abau Tamerlik the dramms.Ii, awake
and dret-s with all s;eed. It is night in the
valleys, but the day star shines on the
mountains. Truly the train is even now
due at the depot, but the 'bus is indeed
And Abau Tamerlik the dm mm ah swore
himself awake, and putting on his robes,
and hastened to the depot, while Rhumul
em Uhp the porter went before with
a lantern.
For it was pitch-dark and raining like a
house fire.
And when they reached the depot it was
a gravel-train going west, and the clcck in
ll e steeple tolled 2 a.m.
And Abou Tamerlik fell upon Rhumul
em Uhp the porter, and beat him all the
way home, and pelted him with mud, and
broke his lantern, and cursed him. And he
got him to bel and slept.
Now, when Abou Tamerlik awoke, the
snn was high, and the noise ot the street-car
rattled in th: street. And his heart smote
him, and he went down stairs ,and the clerk
said to him:
"Oh Abou Tamerlik, live in nesce. It
is too late for breakfast and too early for
dinner; nevertheless, it wou't make any dif
ference in the bill "
And Abou Tamrlik the drnmmah
sought Rhumul em Uhp, the porter, and
caught him by the beard, asd said unto
"O chuck cl eddcJ pup ! which is, ''Thou
that steepest at train-time" why hast thou
forgotten me?"
And Rhumul em Uhp was angry, and
said :
''0 thou Tamerlik the drummah, hasty
in speech and slow to think, wherefore
shouldst thou get up at daybreak, when
there is another train goes the same way
to-morrow morning?-'
But Abou Tam-rlik would not hearken
unto him, but paid his bill, and hired a
a team and a man to take him to the next
town. And he hired the team at the liv
ery stable, and he cursed the house that he
put up at.
Now, the livery stable belonged to the
landlord, all the same. But Abou Tamer
lik the drnmmah wist not that it was so.
Otalona Southern States.1
There is a parcel of bastard Democrats
in Yankeedom who have forced their way
to the front icats in the political syna
gogue, and who seek to make it seem that
they and they only are anointed to speak
for the Democratic party.
These jobernowls and knaves are forever
proclaiming that the South has accepted
the amendments, recognized the results of
the war, bowed to the arbitrament of arms,
and all the rest of the windy and witless
fiddle faddle that you and we and the re
mainder of mankind are constantly seeing
in their public prints.
A majority of these misbegotten party
followers never saw a cotton plantation nor'
a canebrake in the whole of their tricky,
truckling, treacherous lieves. There have
been no ways, no means, no circumstanced
by which they might lorm a correct judg
ment of Southern life, and thought, and be
lief, and character.
Yet, hark ye and mark yej they have the
blank assurance to stand forth and attrib

Southern man would scorn with a holy
scorn to think or feel.

Letter From Jame-s T
Leavenworth Press 31.J
Hitherto I have said nothing about Mr.
Iogalls, the investigation, nor of the parties
who are Fell-constituted prostcutors; but
this man Egger.s and Mr. Stumbaugh have
signed what they call an "answer" to Mr.

they have eeen fit to use my name in a
manner which compels me to take notice
of it.
On page twenty-three of their "answer,"
I find the following language:
"When James V. Legate Immediately

when Mr. Simutl Itlss, a lut-mheror the

James F. Lniate, the majority report was
adopted by 01 ayes to 1 1 tihk, without any of

"LtgHto voted tor Morton ;" and we add thst

IngallsMsacorruptlonist, wassudden'y con
verted to the cause of 31r. Ingalls between
two days, by what means we Know not, un
less it in ly u Inferred from the fact that Mr.
Legate Is the same James K. Legnt who, as
It apjiears by the report of theCjiuinltteeon
I'rlvileaes and Elections, received !l,i00 for
his vote for Mr. Caldwell Seo 'Constresslon
al Itecord," vo'. 1, pae 31, extra session of
tbetsenale, 1S7S.
I desire to notice the last paragraph first.
In that last paragraph Ifind two bare-faced
lies, with a third maliciously designed in
inference that I acted from motives other
than honorable.
Messrs Stumbaugh and Ezger lie when
they say I was "converted to Mr. Ingalls
between two days." They lie when they
say I ever "bitterly denounced Mr. Ingalls
as acorruptionist."
The fight on Mr. Ingalls was conceived in
malice and carried on for the sake cf ven
geance. The jeople whom I represented
were anxious that Gov. George T. Anthony
should succeed Mr. Ingalls in the Senate,
and I sought to use those hating Ingalls to
aid me in the election of Anthony; but I re
fused to be used by them to gratify their
malice agaiust Ingalls.
With reference to my receiving one thou
sand dollars for Toting tor Mr. Caldwell
and "See Congressional Record, volume
one, page thirtv-one, extra session of the
Senate, 1873," I have this to say : That
one witness swore that Mr. Caldwell and
Mr. L.T. Smith told him that Mr. Cald
well had to give me one thousand dollars
to vote for him. Mr. Caldwell and Mr.
Smith both denied that they ever said bo,
and Mr. Caldwell stated that be never paid
or offered or was asked to pay me anything,
and I swore I never received a cent or de
manded a cent ; bnt the report referred to
was made. I have no comments to make
upon the report, but Bay this: that some
thing like a year afterward I spent an eve
ning with Senator Morten, who made the
report, in company with Governor John
Burhank, and during that time we con
versed upon the Caldwell case, and I told
the Senator the injury he had done me by
his report, and he promised me he would
look into the matter and if he had done me
a wrong he would maka it right. Soon
thereafter I received the following letter
from him :
Washing ro;, April 19, 1871. j
Sin: In our conversation a few evenings
since, yon called my attention to an Injury
you claimed bad been done to you In the re
port or the Caldwell case. Since that time I
have examined the testimony, and I am
frank to say that I find nothing tojustltythe
statement that yon received money for your
vote for Mr. Caldwell.
I am glad yon called my attention to the
subject. I only sought Justice. I did not de
alzn to iDjireany oue.
I hope this statement will be satisfactory
to yon. O. P. Xoetos.
Jaxks F. Legate. Esq.
If any man lfving ever paid me anythirg
for any official act of my life. I ask him to
say so at any time. This is defending my
self mors than I ever did before, though I
have been in pnblic life for more than twenty
yean. Now, to the first paragraph. While
- he Ulis a technical truth he tell a. bald lie.
in connection with what is said elsewhere
, in this 'answer," one would infer that the
j members of the House knew nothing about
' tne testimony, ween the tacts are, through
the connivance of Stumbaugh and others
everything that was hsd in the testimony
was printed in the Kansas City Times,
and each member of the House had a copy
and had it for more than one day before the
report was adopted ; and that calf for
"reading all the evidence" (which would
take not less than five hours) was simply
to prevent a vote on the report. After Mr.
Ingalls was elected, I was invited to go into
a caucus lor the purpose of fixing and
arranging a plan to investigate him. I
promptly declined the invitation, and said
to those who invited me tnat I should
oppose investigation for the honor of the
State, and to prevent a lot r.f men from
committing perjury, which I knew they
1 desire to say right here, as to the man
ner of getting up the investigation: The
leaders of the movement were Sidney
Clarke, who had been refused the indorse
ment of Mr. Ingalls to make him United
States Marshal, and was vindictive to In
galls therefor; Chas H. Miller, who had
been removed under charces preferred at
me instance ot Kidney Clarice he was full
of vengeance at Mr. Ingalls becouse he
could not save his official head; L. F. Hgg
ers, who obtained a position as register in
the land office at Hays City, the price of
his vote in convention fjr a member of
Congress he hrd been turned out for tak
jng illegal feerand through Mr. Ingalls'
instrumentality, he was cot pn secuted; he
was violently opposed to Mr. Ingalls be
cause he cou'd not get another office. And
there were several other who had been
turned out of effice and were mad at Mr.
Ingalls because he did not interpose in
their behalf; and last, but not least was
ex-Senator S. C. Pomeroy, filled to the brim
with venom at Ingalls, because Ingalls
succeeded him when he was Yorked. Pom
eroydidallhe could to beat Mr. Ir.galls
before he was elected, and all he could to
dishonor him after he was elected.
Mr. Ingalls had a majority of the votes in
the House, and some means had to be de
vised to pass the resolutions to investigate.
So, after these choice spirits had b?en in
council, tney concluded that they must no
tify certain persons that charges had been
made against them and they would be ex
pected to vote for the resolutions to investi
gate or not vote at all. In that way the in
vestigation was commenced. It was intended
as an inquisition, but the Hoti-e ordered the
commitue, aftera fight lasting for two-days,
that when any testimony was taken which
reflected upan any member of the House,
or Senator Ingall?, or any senatorial can
didate, they should be notified and author
ized to appear, and cio s examine the
witnesses and present counter testi
mony. It is a well known fact that Mr. Ingalls
was never notified, and therefore under the
resolutions of the House, no report could lie
male against him, and the report written
for Mr. Hall and presented by him was not
in order, if that question hail been raised.
The committee was run by the enenms of
Mr. Ingalls, and if there existed anything
against mm, wnicn could be lound, it would
have been. Foiled by tbcirown committee,
they privately solicited the disap;ointed
members to sign a memorial to the Senate
of the United State', charcinir fraud in the
election, and ex Senator Pomeroy was
charged with the duty of not allowing Mr.
Ingills to be sworn in. But that failed.
'I heir memorial was sent, but their case
wa bad, and something had to he done;-so
they filed supplemental charges. About
the men mentioned iu the supplemental
charges, I think I have some iersonal
knowledge, and the reaooas for their con
duct. Mr. O. G. Richards, Clarke claimed as
the "man," that he would do as he wanted
he should Clarke was manipulating all the
time to combine the opposition upon him
self to become Ingalls' successor, and that
trial so disgdstcd the opposition element
that it drove more than a dozen men from
"-. ..iu(..i.: u..Aut: o.s uiruaieu n, .vital
I Clarke was saying about him jhat he open
ly pronounced in favor of Ingalls.
U. K. Ballard's first choice was Judge
Horton, second choice Ingalls so known
and ncojcVd. He waited for something
to turn up favorable to Herton until no
one thought Horton would be nominated,
and then went to the Ingalls men. Not,
however, till the "opposition" caucus had
Wen in session for hours, and Clarke per
sisted in being a candidate when no one
there expected it to scree.
L E. James is a D?nv crat, elected in
opposition to Gov. Anthony, and finding
Ingalls could beat him cast his vote for
G. W. Greaver is a D inccrat. from the
same county with Mr. James. He was also
opposed to Gov. Anthony, favored Col.
Phillips, but when Phillips went out of
sight, he said publicly he should vote for
Icgalls, and did so. The artion of both
trerc men has been endorsed by the county
central Democratic committee of their
Geo. S. Bishop had been promisfd noth
ing, was ejected to vote for Phillijia first
and Incalls second, and did so.
Mr. Blackburn was elected to vote for
anybody who would defeat Gov. Anthony,
with preference for Phillips, but voted for
L. P. Hamilton said in the opposition
caucus, also in the Greenback caucti", that
if the question came between Horton and
Ingalls, he should vote for Ingalls. In ex
planation of his coune, he said, with much
feeling that Judge Horton, "while upon the
bench, had misused his fa'her.
John M. Price was nominated to vote for
Ingalls, was instructed to vote for Ingalls,
was elected and did vote for Ingalls.
Senator L. O. Savage, personally, did not
like Mr. Ingalls, but alter Judge Horton
was nominated, Senator Grass made an
appeal to him to vote against .Judge Hor
ton and detailed what he regarded as a
great crime Judge Horton had committed
against Montgomery county. The two
men are warm personal friends. Savage
believed him, and did vote for Ingalls,
and has been endorsed therefor by his con
stituency. Now I ask, in all fairness and
reason, is it right that a man like Eggers,
who bas been denounced by his constitu
ency and hung in effigy, a man without
character; old Stumbaugh, who, if he ever
hsd any character, left it in Pennsylvania
when he came to this States these men.with
Sidney Clarke and S. C. Pomeroy.whobave
covered this State with infamyis it fair, I
ask, that they should le paid by the con
tributions of Charles II. Miller", and other
haters of Ingalls, to stay in Washington to
defame men's characters, two thousand
miles away, dishonor the State by theit ma
licious falsehoods about its citizens and
give them our tacit a&'ent by remaining si
lent ? I answer no.

Komancists glean the material for their
books of fiction from the events of every

more mbelli-hment their productions are

villainy and deception are interwoven are
used, but the denouement is always happy.
We question, however, whether any ro

counterpart in life's realities. The follow,
irg very romantic storyjis but the substance
ot what happened in our own city many
j tars ago. The characters that appear as
principals have passed away from the
busy scenes of life, but their descendants
yet live among ns and occupy honorable
positions in society. Two young men who
had passed through college and graduated
with honor were studying for the profes
sion of medicine. They were fast friends
and were almost inseparable. They enter
ed society together and were well received
in the best houses. The? were together one
evening at a reception in one of the
wealthiest mansions of the city when a new
star appeared in the person of a niece of
the hostess who had come from Massachu
setts, and this was her first appearance in
society. She was handsome, and reports
ageee in saying that the was as good as she
was pretty. Hoin ol the medical students
were smitten, and for the first time in their
lives a feeling of estrangement came be
tween them. The nature of the two young
men were essentially different. Oce was
frank and open as the day, while the other
was taciturn and reserved. Both paid
court to the lady, bat she soon manifested a
choice far the more frank character and
they became engaged. Thna far every thing
hadpatsed happily with the IoTers. The
defeated suitor seemed to bear his disap

He reasoned that there was caue for her
change, and like a sensible mac he at once
commenced the task of unraveling the
mystery. After much trouble he obtained
an interview with the wife in the absence
of her husband, and as an answer to his
upbraidings she handed him his letter of
renunciation. She was happier than she
had been in many days when she learned
that the letter was a forgery and thit the
lover had always been true to her. She at

A fortnight ago to-day the InUrccvnaic

M. de Leseps, pronounced an address of
welcome, which was highly commendesl !y
the European press. In it he ventured
upon the following prediction: "In a week
you will have concluded your labors and

The Federal Court Declares That
Memphis Still i:Ists. and 32ust
Pay up.
Iu entering the dfcree in the case 03 to
which of the two IUxi7era were to take
charge of the effocU ef the late city cf
Memphis, Judge IJaxter, of the Federal
Court, held, first, that the act of the legis
lature repealing the cha-ter of the city of
Memphis is absolutely unu,nntitutional acd
void;second, that the act creating the tax
ing district is likewise unconstitutional and
void; third, that such was his deliberate
opinion after cartful and elaborate investi
gation in the questions involved; that it
was not necessary, however, for him to so
hold in these cases, for he might concede
the constitutionality of these two
acts so far as their elT-cts to
dissolve the old corporation and
create a new one is concerned, acd be com
pelled to hold under the State and na
tional Constitutions; that tie two tea
were ineffectual to prevent the collection of
debts due by the City of Memphis through
the Federal Courts. After the delivery cf
an interesting opinion the court gave di
rections for the demurrers interpo-.ed to be
overruled, and for judgment to go againt
thedefendant tar-psyers for the amount
claimed. This was in answer to a request
that Mr. Merriwether, the State Receiver,
be recognized as K-cei7er, and "it recognized
only Mr. Lathan, the Receiver appointed
by Judge Easier several months ago. In
addition to holding all back taxes subject
to the satisfaction of the judgments against
tae city, Judge Baxter held that the Fed
eral Court oucld. if ti.e L.sl - tin a,.y re
ceived were iiwctSeiest. g forward and

as it would . likfiy tx come vital cpaes
tion ia cases now before him, ho de
cided in favor of the powsr, merely to pre
-nt the question anew to the" United
States supreme court. This virtually set
tl that matter, as fir a Judtre 15 utter is
cooeerneel. He, however, said, amrng
other things, that the Stale supreme conn
ought to elecidu the Q3tter, and that, in
b's judgment, it could only be decide- one
way. This court's decision is looked for on
Saturday next with greit anxiety.

Dcs Moines, Ms. 3. A AVjiWer report
er interviewed Jostive Miller, of the United
States .upretne court, with regard to the
mmoreel resignation ot Judge Dillon, of
the United States circuit court, and learned,
substantially, the following facts:
Judge Miller premis-sl his statement by
saying that, so far as he knew. Judge Dil
lon had not yet resigneiL The law de
partment of Columbia college, Xew York
city, had for many years beeu under the
control of Prof. Dwigh, and had grown in
reputation and in the number of students in
attendance until the trustees of the college
determined to reorginiza thnt branch of
it by cre-ating an additional profes-
sirhip, which has been ottered to Jtidje
liilloa at the annual salsry ot fi.OT.
JuiUe Dillon's name was suggested for the
place by a gentleman living in 2ew York,
who is a craduate of the 'school, and who
had practiced in Jtule Dillon's circuit,
when conferring with a fe'low graduate,
who was a trustee. This sttsgestion was
seconded by Hon. Ahbel Green, an emi
nent lawyer of ICew Yurk. Mr. Hamilton
Fish, thairman cf the executive coiuniitteo
of the bjard of trustees, iu consequence of
th'te suggestion", wrot- to Judge Miller
asking in coiti.lrce what he thought of
the matter. Judge Miller unhesitatingly
repiinl that a better man for the par pom
could not be found, but expresseil
a doubt cf Judge Dillon's accept
ance. The correi-iioailer.co thst took place
1st th n Mr. I:sh and Judge Miller, in
which the salary was suggesteel as STj-jOO
ar.d a declaration made that in that institu
tion the tenure was practicably permanent,
though uneler the control of the trustees,
was sect m its entirety to Jude Dillon.

As the board cf trustees w-sto meet m
April, to act on the rernotmemlatioa of tho
executive committee, Jmlge Dillon replied
that he could not act on so important a
matter on such short notice, and if he were
rt quired to promise to accept before the
ttiKiecs acted, he must decline; bnt if they
would give him some time to consult his
family and visit New York, .-e might ac
cept, The board unanimously elected hint
without a pledge, paying hi t the high
compliment ot dispensing w' allot.
He went to New York ttie week and
then to Washington. While . latter

The salary of the professorship, wiih his
reputation ami opportunities to write new
law bocks aril other matters that have been
eflVrfd. will bring him an assured revenue
of $15,GoO to S18,(KK) a year. The duties
of the professorship will leave him more

reputation is fir above the necessity of any
vindication. Judge Dillon had been en
tirely too sensitive oa the subject, though
such sensitiveness was the best evidence of
the delicacy cf his rense of honor. The
offer of the professorship was the strongest
evidence that his standirg had suffered no
diminution by the slander which even the
newspapers had cead to notice. The
place opens to Judge Dillon a wider fame
on a metropolitan theater, and is especially
attractive as one which was held by the
great thaccellor Kent.
