Our old Kansas friend, the well-known
journalist, Col. K. J. ilinton, row of tie
New York Hat, is in town, en route from
the Indian Territory, in which he h.s been
purruing, lor newspaper at d literary pur
pose", a iiuict but exhaustive irqniry into
tlie actual condition of affairs iu that re
gion. As uual he is full of points. Lin
ton usually succeeds in getting at tlie bot
tom of things, sr.d we Judge from cur con
rersation with the Colonel, that he has
done so in the case of tre Tcrritcrr. He
declares on the authority of Majr Wilcox,
10th civalry, in command at Yicita, as
well as other officers, Indian and U. S. offi
cials and citizens, and his own observa
tions, that the so-called "invasion'' of the
ceded land, is an arrant humbug. It is
probably true that if the President's
proclamation had not been issusrd,
here might have been something
like a "boom" bat the military olu-ers be
lieve that even then the fears that would
have aiifen from the neighborhood of the
Cheyennes, Kickapoos. Oiages and othtr
Indians, would have been ample to have
kept away any large number. Sj far as
the mass of the settled Indians in the five
nations are concerned, there has been a de
gree of indifferecce to the occupation of
the ceded lands wh'ch would astonish those
who, deceived by reports published in sen
sational newspapers, have believed that
Hundreds ol lectctesj men were rushing
over the Territory, and that the Indians
were ready to fight them. Outside the In
dian official rings and of the few white
persona living on them, so far a) Co!. Ilin
ton could judge, the Indians do net seem to
care oue iota if the c ded lands were
fully occupied by white settlers,
This statement will be denied i.hout doubt
by the two Indian papers at Tah-lah-quah
and Muscogee, but it is sustained by con
current facts. The Mayor of Yicita and
others declared in a letter to M-pr Vri!cox
that no real invasion bad occurred. The
Indian official rings are quite, in Col.
llintonV opinior, as desirous of making
capital fjr their aide oat of the folly of
Boudinott, Carpenter & Co., as thj railroads
connected with the Territory are and were
willing to make profit out of a possible in
eresoe i traffis. The commanding cfEcer

military to be utterly fake. During eleven
days only five raovtrs' wagons
pissed Yicita and they were go
iag to Texaz. Ths immig-ation
to that state through the Indian Territory
his een-ibly dec-eased of lite, owing to the
fear created by the "invasion" talk. All
the dNpatches are made from whole cloth,
which pretend to narrate the restlessness of
the civilized Indians and their desire to
take arms and drive the advancing hordes
of illegal settler-. The latter have not ad
vanced 'wcrth a cent," and where any
foundation has exi-ieJ on the part of re
ports for such a story as Indians wanting
to Glit, it has ben baed on the statement

p f t-es hmr been sent by or through a
c-ntr-".r, who xithesthe military to re
main ilnr-. With regard to the general
c indition of the Territory, Col. Ilinton,
ho trarekd through it before lf-Gl and
served in it during the civil
war, and is therefore able to
make Forae comparisons, believes that
there is a fair ar.d improving condition of
pro-"erity, that education is advancing and
intelligence is enlargirg, but not in as rapid
a decree im was tlie cae during the last
ar.tc Ullum decade. This is partly, per
haps, due to the demoralization produced
by war and i's destruction, but it is aUo,
a?d more, the result of the conflict between
the Indian system and that of the rapidly
growing and different life all around them.
There is an increasing degree of discontent,
among themselves, felt at their condition.
The fear of losire their lands by reason of
railroad reversionary grants, keeps the
feelinc united agaitst any present change
in the Indian communality, but if that
were removed through the repeal by Con
grefs of all acts on which the railroads might
claim lands, there wo.ild be-gin at once a
wholesome imitation from within, and
amocg the Indians, as to the need of land
allottment and tl.e value of American vs.
Indian citizenship. The neighborhood or
common i-chools of the five rations are im
proving slowly, but the seminaries or en
dowed high schools are carried on. in by
f ir too prefutctory a manner for the In
dian jeople to derive all the benefit they
otherwihe might from the liberal founda
tions that have Leen laid. There can be
no doubt that the governmental control of
the Cherokces, Creeks, Choctaws and
C'Liekasaws, is in but a few hands, that the
handling of their funds sustains a notable
ring of very shrewd men, and that the
pr judices tf the full bloods and others, are
carefully nurtured to increase a clannish
hold on their affairs, for the benefit of
the more clever men among tbem.
There is less land reported under cultiva
tion in the Cherokee Nation, owing to the
prohibitory legislation known as the per
mit Kw, by which a ttx of Si5 per month
is laid on every white laborer, citizen of
the United States, who is employed in that
Nation, but the Indiats themselves are do
ing mi.re woik as a result of this procets.
Kill road business appears to be growicg,
and the feeling of hostility to the le:dir g
corpjration, heretofore spoken ef, is dying
out. More land his been opened
near the line of the M. K. &

The Indian Territory question, if there le

One of the strangest and most ie
matkable cures that the people cf Peters'
burg have ever wi'nessed was that which
took place at a colored baptizing ju this
city on Sunday afternoon. During ihe
evenirir fiftT-four candidates were im
mersed, one of whom was a deaf and dumb
mute named Bnrwell Lancaster, about
twenty-one years cf age, who is quite high
ly educated, having received his schooling
at tbe college lor the deal and dumb in
Piovidence, B, I. After being baptized by
the officiating minister Kev. Henrv Wil
liams, pastor of the Oilfield Biptit Church
in this ciy, the mute returned frcni the

veat to his feelings by a lusty rhout of
'Thank God," whrn he was again taken

Now, while the communi'y is yet sgi-
tated bicaue of the terrible tragedy at ,
Eaton last 'VVeJne.'day night, is a very
opportune time to dbcusj the beat means of ,
correcting the unfortunate state of public i
sentiment which makes Euch occurrences
possible. Moralizing upon euch affairs,
and delivering sermons upon the eTUs ct i
mob la, will not prevent the recurrence of
acts of violence of this character, so long as
there is not at. least areasonable probability
of a man guilt of crime b?ing punished by
The seat of ths evil referred to is not to
be found in the conclusion that men are
growing worse, and that they have less
respect for law and justice than formerly,
but in tbe fact that the customs cf our
courts have rendered the administration of
justice, in many cases, a firce and a hol.ow
In this age of free newspapers acd ths
genera! dissemination of information!
whenever a great crime is committed every
man in the immediate vicinity, with intel
ligence enough to be a competent juryman,
reads all about tLe affair, and cannot help
iormmg an opinion. I his, according to
present usage, renders liini incompetent to
serve as a juror, and the important duty of
trying criminals must therefore be relegated
to ignoramusses, who would not be trusted
by any prudent man with the adjudication
of a case involving five dollars, or elee to
friends of the criminal who are willing
. to ierjure them-eJves for the purpose of se
curing seats upon the jury. In either cae
there is no hope of justice, and the trial is
simply a disgusting farce.
As long as this continues to be the case,
the community injy expect to be shocked
every now and then by j ist such horrors as
that at Easton. Men hive no faith in the
courts as a means of punishing crime, and
and hence when they bjlieve a man guilty
they take the law into their own hands,
and administer pum-hment swift and sure.
We are glad to be able to record the fact
that there has been considerable improv
ment of late, in our courts, in the matter
here referred to, '.mt there is room for a
good deal mere reform. A mau's opinion
shou'd have no weight in the matter of his
competency as a juryman, unless accompa
nied by prejudice, and when an in'elligent,
disinterested man is called, the only juc
tion asked him should be, "Is there any
reason why you could cot render a verdict
according to the evidence produced?' If a
man is prej ldiced, he should be eet aside,
but a disinterested party, who has an opin
ion cf the prisoner's g-iilt or innocence,
based upon the reporLs that he may have
heard or read,houM be competent,to serve,
and his opinion should not be considered an
objection, tar unless he has personal feel
ing in the matter that opinion will be im
mediately changed, if the evidence shows
him that it is incorrect.
A man ho does not read the newspapers
iu this age of the world is not fit to ht a
juryman, in any case, and one who reads
the papera canuot fail to form an opinion
concerning a crime cf any magnitude that
may be committed io his community, for
the papers will report all obtainable facts
in connection with it; but if he has no per
sonal interest or feeling in the matter, this
opinion ought not, and in fact does net,
make him any less competent to be a juror
in the case, thin if be had never heard cf
the matter. The eourts are, theoretically,
for the purpo-e oi administeiing jutice
but under our jury system, as too common
ly managed, they becom, instead, mere
appliances for defeating the ends of justice.
Tbe Court should exercise its discretion
in the r-cceptaucj or rejetion of a juror
When the Judge knows a man to be compe
tent, he should accept him, regaidless of
technical objections, and when he knows
one to lie unfit, he should reject him, no
matter what degree of ignorance and impar
tiality the man's pliable con-cleccj may
prompt him to swear to.
Take tbe case of our own community,
for instance: Judge Crtz"er knows nearly all
the men who will be presented as jurors;he
knows those who ans generally unfit, and he
knows those who are there for the jinrpo?e
of securing the acquittal of some particular
I Tty, at the expense of no matter how
n.uch false f rearing. All these persons he
should perei iptorily set aide, without giv-i-tg
them an opportunity to perjure them
"tlve, and he should caiice the jury to be
selected from the honest, intelligent, men
present. '. not permitting such to hz ex
cused U citi-e of the fact that they may
know 8..jietliing abjut the c.iae, and may
have fotmed disinterested opinions in re
Inf-lurt, the complexion of the jury
should be dater.uined more by the good
judgment and c.umon sense of the court
in the interests of j'Utice, than by the legal
tpuibbles and technicalities resorted to by
attorneys for ths purpose of defeating jus
tice. When this shall lu done the people
will hac a reasonable hope that criminals,
will be punished by the courts, and we
shall then have ccci-ion to record fewer
exhibitions of barbarism in the form cf
A KKitlTr.OIS ii: im ox.
A New York jude has scntencd an ex
merchant cf that city to the State prison
for obtaining ?70,000 worth of goods by
misieprefenting his financial condition.
The creditors, it seems, signed an agree
ment that they would not accept a pecun
iary settlecent from lich relatives of the
culprit, desiring the case to be tested in the
courts. The courU held distinctly that any
erson who buys on credit takes a criminal
risk tJ to the representations which he may
make about his solvency. If, for example,
a stranger enters a store as a buyer,
the pro;x?ed creditor questions him.
Where does he live? Where
dees lu transjci business? What is his
property? How much is l.e worth? etc.
etc. "At this point," decides the Xew
York judge, "let the proposed debtor be
ware. He is about to obtain property on a
promise of payment, and the promise is re
ceived by the propofed creditor upon faith
in the debtoi's story. No one should know
better than the debtor abcut his eolvency,
and the law forbids him to speculate rashly
upon his word of honor. If he has Iicd)
and the creditor is cheated, then the
debtor must suffer a penalty of fine
and imprisonment for his He." This de
cision is clearly good law. Ia this country
it has been the fault of creditors that crim
inal punishment has not followed misrep
resentations in business transactions. The
speculator in commercial confidence has
been allowed to compromi'e the matler by
paying a certain portion of the debt incur
red. The Xcw York merchants who re
fused the money and brought the criminal
to justice have established a precedent
which may well be followed.

Death of 3Irs. Scott J. A nt lion j .
iUener Tims May 10.1
Shortly before twelve last night the
beautiful soul of Mrs. Scott Anthony
psssed home to its maker. On the 17th
of Iat Dccembjr, her twenty-ninth birth
day, she entered her home a happy bride.
To-dsy there is not one in all the city
whose cup is so full ef sorrow as the
bereaved husband who mourns her loss.
Often sines their marriage she has pre
dicted her early death. It was a constant
premonition in health which led her to
warn him at the beginning of her last ill
ness that she would never recovered. Some
dsys ago a ccuacil of ekilled physicians,
after a full investigation, advised her as
gently as they could that the end was
nigh. Still Mr. Anthony clurg to the hope
that they might ba mistaken, and the light
of his heart and home would yet be re
stored to health and happiness. But the
blow has fallen, acd his grief io immeas
urable. Mrs. Anthony was deeply admired
and loved far the many excellencies of her
mind and character, by a large circle of
friends here and elsewhere, and the an
nouncement of her death is a shock to all
who knew her. We are requested to state
that the funeral obsequies will occur at the
residence, SS3 Arapahoe street, to-morrow
at 2 o'clock, to which all friends are in

A special dispatch, frcm Irving to the
Atchison Chcmxpiot, of Sunday morning,
gives the following additional particulars of
the terrible cyclone last Friday evening :
Yesterday (Siturtlay) morning, at 10.30,
a special train left Atchison, carrying a few
zemlemen connected with the Central
Branch acd retire-cuts. five of the Atchison
CIiimpiCKt and I'xitrnt, bound for the scene
of the terrible cyclone of Friday evening a
meagre account of which had been received
At Centralis the trices 'if a heavy rain
storm were visible. ilie ground was
Hooded. During a brief s'op at Centralis
for dinner, it was lejrntd that shortly after
four o'clock on Friday a storm came up
and a funnel-shaped cloud seemed to
descend and strike the h arth abont three-
quarters of a mile northcist of the town,
and t-assin;; oa ia tint course, destroyed
litres and sheds on the pUces owned Ly
Mesr.s. Chippenjer and Slater. Large
trees were torn down, but little general
damage has ben reported as yet.
AtFrankfjrt the (lanugos reported bv
telegraph were isible, bt t it was found
that the town was outside of the main
track of thz storm. At Frankfort the train
was boarded by Dr. Clutter, who was on his
way to Irving to offer hi3 service, and
from him was received the first connected
account of the storm Pe said that about
five o'clock p. m. the cyclone, apparent y
coming from the southwett, and having a
track about one mile in width, swept
through tbe county, on a Hue between the
towns of Irving and B-attie. The" storm,
in all its phase , lasted ixjssibly two hours.
It was intensely dark, and the force of the
wind was perfectly resistless. When a
hous: was struck it was utterly demolished.
The people can give no intelligible account
further than that there was a crash, and
then everything Hew into the air.
Ass, on as possible, in company with
Dr. Garland, of Frankfort, he started on
to render assistance. Dr. Coffin, of
Frankfort, al-o attended to some cases.
From Dr. C u'ter's memoranda we learned
that the greatest destruction was in a
neighborhood beginning ab tit two and one
half miles northeast of Frankfort, and ex
tending perhaps five and a half miles in
thil distance Every house was torn to
utoms and everything movable hurled into
space. Hadde't of all, the following casu
alties occurred, and more probably be re
jiorted: Jam.s Djwns acd wife, killed;
John Howe, sun of Jcshua Howe, a boy of
thir.een, killed; Dr. Groves, killed and
Mrs. Grove's h; broking Mr. Morsefill'e
child severely injured ; Mrs. Vanhall, bid

three- places ; Benj. Fox, foa of A. S. Fox,
severely injur-d; Henry Johnson, mor
tally wounded; Mrs. Henry Johnson,
killed; Mr. Bolton, leg broken; Joshua
Howe, ludly injured ; James Yaughn, bad
ly injure!; Henry Ceaser, painfully in
jured; Bobt. f.aughlin, badly injured;
Miles Kelley and family, more or less in
jured. In all cans the hnues were torn to frag
ments Tee boy, John Hie, was found
ira peach orchard a long distance from
tbe hoti-e. Mrs. Yaughn was thrown into
a sree but c-ciped with a sprained ankle.
The solid stt ne v a'ls of J hn Fox's hoifc
were moved in a msss thirty feet. In many
cases where there was no loss of life or
limb, tbe families were left without shelter
or clothing. Amort: the sufferers are Mr.
Youett, Mr. Mortitib Sim 1'roaper, Jos.
Girbut. H.T. Fitch, William Furly, Em

But the taddest remains to be told. As
tbe train approached Irving, the signs of
the tempest became more apparent, in the
shape of trees twisted eff like weeds by the
force of the wind, and as the train stopped
at the depot the passengers looked out on
a tceoe of desolation, intensified by the
dreary wind and falling rains.
Scattered over the prairie were shapeless
heaps, that bad once been houses. In most
rases no portion ol the wall was standing
They were not only tcrndown, but scattered
over the plain. The tower of the Presby
terian church still stood, however, amid a
heap of stent' and mortar a monument of

site of the school houfe. Once tasteful
residences were mere piles of splintered
boards. Xear the depot were the ruins of

of the Irving tchools, now homeless, he is
indebted for many courtesies. From tht-e
gentlemen he obtained what may be called
an outline fketch nf the storm.
Friday, May 30ih, opened a fine day.
Until 3 o'clock, nothing was observed in the
sky. A festival was to be given by the la
dies, at the Presbyterian church, and the
people were preparing for an evening of
enjoyment. At about hali-past five a dark
cloud, funnel shaped and in rapid motion,
was seen in the Eoulhwestern horizon. It
eemed to divide, and the two portions rose
in the air, ar.d the blue sky could be seen
below them The sky grew darker; a few
miuutts lati r hail Ml, ar.d was followed by
rain and a joerfiil wind. It first struck
the house of a Bohemian named Xowitrk,
living three miles southwest. The house
was crushed, and Mrs. Xowark killed. The
next victims were Mrs. George Martin and
child, two miles from town. Tbe house of
Mr. Buckmaster came next. The father
was badly hurt, and Mrs. Buckmaster and
four young children were killed. John
Gallops' honst was struck, and several of
the lamily injured. but not seriously.
Crossing the railroad track, Capt. Arm
strong's house acd barn were taken. The
familv were in the cellar and e'Ciped. Mrs.
Jao. Thompson's family were equally for
tunate. Mr. and Mrs. Lee Hunt escaped
with some inj'iries. W. J. William-' s able
Alter this there ws a lull, ad the peo
ple left their houses to assist thoe who had
lieen unfortunate. The rain stopped and
the sky partially cleared. After a time,
variously estimated from half anhourtoan
honr, the wind came with a roar louder
than an express train, from the West. The
noi'e was awful. The air was filled with
fling fragments. Joists and heavy timbers
lUw like stubble. Some of the people took
to the fields; others to their cellars. With
the wind cams a torrent of rain. The
home of Mr. Johnston, the station agent,
went down. Tfce family were preserved
from serious injury by taking refuge in the
cellar. A small clock was blown half a
mile. It stopped at 40 minutes past six
o'clock. The hcuses of George Bowdish
and Mr. Jeffers were demolished, but with
out loss of life or limb. A sadder fate be
fell the Keeney family. Mr. Keeney, the
father, his son, and his son's wife, were all
killed. Of the three boys, two of them are
painfully but not seriouly injured. The
second son has a leg badly broken in four
G. A. W. Walkers houe was unroofed.
Tenty-one people in the cellar escaped in
jury. The house of Mr. James M. War
den was ruined. It was unoccupied by the
family, but pirtially furnished. The loss
to Mr. Warden is cot less than forty-five
At Mr. Wm. Bates' house there were
more or less hurt. A son of Sydney Bates
was fatally injured and a little daughter,
Jesse Bites, is in a critical condition. At
Mr. Jack Sabin's the victims were Mr.
Sabin, who had one arm broken and the
other dislocated, and one leg broken. Mrs.
Sabin was badly hurt. Mr. bnor Sheldcn
was crushed so that hi recovery is doubt
ful. His sister, Miss Emma Sheldon, died
of her injuries an hour afterwards. Mrs
Sheldon ws seriously injured, acd a Bohe
mian servant girl was killed.
The next fatality occurred at the house
of Mr. W. J. Williams. There the families
of Capt. Armstrong, Mr. John Thompson,
and several railroad and bridge men had
taken refuse. The roof was crushed in,
and Mrs. Williams was killed, with her
baby in her arms. The child escaped un
hurt, and no one else in the house was in
iured. Tbe hrnses of M. A. Lsddy, Stephen
Bowdisb, James McCoy and Fraak McCla
ry were all destroyed, aad probably others
not yet reported. Bat it is 0U time 7t to

Mr. .Milo W icks, living three miles out,
was hurt about the head. To those enum
erate! as injured in Irving, should be ad
ded rrankreeaton, who has both arms bro
ken, and Hy. Fosgate, who has one arm
and several ribs broken. The less seriously
injured are Wright Ililleker, Lew Foster,
J Y. Gallop, wife and four children; J.
Case and two children; Mrs. Snyder and
daughter, who were in the house with the
Bates family, and received painful but not
dangerous injuries ; Mr. Johnson, a bridge
workman was hurt, but is around.
Night set in dark and rainy. The peo
ple turned out with lanterns, to succor the
wounded and search for the dead. Mrs.
Williams were taken from the ruins of her
home. Those searching for her were
guided by the crying of the babe, which
was taken out alive and unhurt. The
bodies of Mrs. Buckmaster and her children
were brought into town. The bodies of the
Keeneys wasj found at some distance from
their house, in a field..
The physicains of Irving, Drs. Tenny
and Chase, and Drs Croft and Freelacd, of
Blue Bapids, were kept at work nearly all

In a room formerly used as a billiard room
were laid out the bodies of Mrs. Buckmas

room were the bodies of the Keeneys. lu
different bou-es were wounded men.
The damage done to the town ia incalcu
lable. Houses not torn down were badly
injured. II Smith & Sons' business hou-e
had its iron rouf torn off, acd the interior
was greatly injured by water, probably to
the extent of one thou-and dollars. But no
estimate as to the loss of property can be
Of course many instance of courage and
of narrow escape occurred. Four young
ladies, Misses Addie Smith, Lena Bjvee,

Washington, June 2. The funeral of
Hon. Eben C. Irgersoll, b-other of CoL
Bobt. G. IcgersolL of Illinois, took place at
his residence this afternoon. The ceremo
nies were extremely simple, consisting
merely of visiting the remains by relatives
and friends and of a funeral oration by
Col. Bobt. G. Ingerolt, brother of the de
ceased. A large number cf di'tingnished
gentlemen were presint, including Secre
tary Sherman, Assistant-Secretary Hawley,
Senators Blaine. Voorlie-, Paddock,
Alli'on. Logan, Hon. Thomas Henderson,
Hon. Wm. M. Morrison, Gereral Seflnis.
Gen. Williamson, Col. James Fihback acd
others. The pall bearers were, Senators
Blaine, Yorhees, Dsvid Davij, Ptddock and
Allison, Col. Ward II. Lamon, Hon.Jera
miah Wil-on, of Indiana, acd on. Thos
II. Bold, of Illinois. The following is the
oration of C'jl. logersoll, whirli was re
ceived by all present wi h marks of deep
and sincere feeling and sympathy :
My friends . I am going to do that
which the dead often promiud he would do
for me. The lived acd lov
ing brother, husband and father
frierd, died where manhood's morning al
most touches noon acd while the shadows
still were lallidg toaids the west. He
had not passed on life's highway the stoce
tint mark tne highest point, but bein
weary for a moment he laid down by the
wayside and changing his burden for a
pillow, fell into tint dreamless sleep tint
kisses down his eyelids jet, after all, it
may ba lest. Just in the happiest, sun
niest hour of all life's happy moments,
while eager winds are pressing every sail
againsi the unseen reck acd in an instant
we hear the billows roar above a sunken
ship, tor whether in mid ocean or anion;
the treat breakers ot the farther shore, a
writk must n.a k at the last the end of
each and every lif. Xo matter if its every
hour is ricn with love and every moment
jeweled wiih a joy, it will at its clo-e lie-
come a tragedy as sad ana deep anu oars,
ascould'be woven of the warp and woof of
the mystery of death. This brave and ten
der man, in every storm of life, was as the
oak acd rock ; but in the sunshine he was
as the vine acd tljer. He was the friend
of all heroic souls. He climl..d theheighlh
and Uft all superstition far beluw, while on
his forehead fell the g'd !en dawning
of a grander day. He loved the
beautiful, and was with color,
form and music touched nith tears. He
sided with the weik and wiih a willing
hand gaye alms with a loyal heart; an!
with the purest hand he faithfully discharged
all duties. He was a worshiper of liberty, a
friend of the oppres-ed. He believed that
happiness was the only gjod reason; jus
tice, the only worshipper; human
ity, the onlv religion ; and love the
only priest. He added to the sum of, hu
man joy, and were every ore for whom he
did some loving service to bring a blo-som
to bis grave he would sleep to niht be
neath a wilderness of llowers. There is a
narrow vale betweeutbec Id anlbirren
peaks of the two eternities. We strive
in vain to look beyond the heights.
We cry aloud aad the only
answer is the re echo of our wailiug cry.
From the voiceless lips of the unreplying
dead there comes no word; but in the
night of death hope sees a sUr and listen
ing love can hear the rustle of a wing. He
who lies here, when dyinr', mistaking the
approach of dea'h for the return of health,
whispered with his la e-t breath :
" 1 am better now. "
Let us believes, in spite of doubts and dog
mas and tear", these dear words are true of
all the countless dead.
And now to you who have b'en chosen
from among the many men that he loved
to the las' sad office for the dead ; we give
his sacred dust. Speech cannot contain
our love. There was there is no gentler,
stronger, manlier man.
There were no ceremonies whatever at
the grave, but a pathetic scene recurred
when the Mioses Lawler. daughters of the
late General Lawler, and adopted daugh
ters of Hon. I. Ingersoll, to whom they
were devotedly attached, took their lat
leave of the dead fc-der f Jther. Oae of
ihem fainted in bein taken to her carriage,
and the other lingered at the grave until
almost forcibly taken away by her friends.

Henry Ward ISeecher's sermou lat Sao-
day from the test, "Of whom the world was
not worthy,"" was devoted to a eulcgv cf
William I.Ioyd Garrison. The death of
Mr. Garrison, he said, after a lorg Kfe and
a hard atrugg'e, calls to mind a class of
men who, with him, wrought omsof the
greatest changes this world ever sasr. The
ranks, of those who, in the speaker youth,
worked for that end are thinned, with only
here and there one left, and many of them
ju"t tottering on the brink of the grave
l'liey did a noble wcrk in tln-ir own way.
They made some mi"tikes, but set them
selves against oppres-icn of every kind, and
would not compromise with evil in any
form. The wonder is not so ranch ihit
they ran into danger, as that they lived to
meet the djnger threugb. which ll.er pas"d
The great evil whic'i lhe men fot:i;ut t
destroy was slavery, an evil which had be
come ingraiced into the Constitution and
into the social am! political fabric cf the
nation until it had become put and parcel
of both which existed primarily a" a cuni
mercial necessity, acd became a prodig us
polilic.il power. That itw.t-swhichrii-ed tip
lhat noble band of Abolitionists, every one
of whom must alway x stand Ligh in the es
timation of his countrymen,3iul the highest
of whom was William I. low! G irrison. Cf
all the men who labored in the great work
in tbe dark day, when it cod muc'i and
meant mnre to be counttd of their luqiIht,
no one was more worthy to live to see the
vtctory won than Garrison, and it was re
served for him to lasts the fully ripened fruits
of his life's labor. Garn-on w ts a great
man, but his greatness and j wer did not
lie wholly in the bitterness of hn 1 logiiHg.
Tbe fault cf that was in the c 100I in
whii h be iound himself mt tint his
words ought never to have bjen severe, but
they Wire merciless. Personally, be was
very kind, with a heart as tender as a sro
man's and pure as a chi.d's; but, when
be looked tiion silvery, he became an
avenging power. It waa the decision of
the surgeon, that the heart did r.ot ouakrf
or thelips i liver rs be p tingsil the knife
into the tiu-e carbuacle. ilucli cf this was
due to thecircuiosiarceis of the times, the
prostitution of tbe Church, the dickeringt
of politic". Garrison saw in the beginning
the dangers hidden in the carcass of slavery,
acd laid out at the start a course of action
front which he never swerved, and which
was in the end carried out by the war.
His position was that slavery was wiong,
and the only thing to be done was to at
tack, a-sault and destroy it. He had lived
to see the sword cut the Gordian knot, and
to behold the stain of slavery blotted out
forever by the blood of the nation.
It wan the South that brought on
the War the War brought on emancipa
tion. The faith of the people of the South
in the justice of their cause and in iu final
triumph, was so great that it took tbem
into tucb. indomitable resistance as to re
duce them to abject poverty, and to compel
them, in the future, to labor for their
bread. The result would be that, by tbe
time one generation of Southern people had
learned to earn their bresd by the sweat of
their brows, labor wculd be as much re-e-.et.Ud
there as here. Mr. lieecher con
cluded by applying the lesson of the life
just closed. It w3j a lessen to all men, es
pecially those jrt-t entering upon life, that
it is always tilt to take the highest ground
for principle, and that, no matter what ore
may suffer on tbe way, it is always le-t in
the end. "Girri-on "haj gone to his rest.
Xo tongue cf clamor disturbs him now.
He is riien, and is standing among tbe
prophets anil in the p-eserc- of GjJ."
