JUU273GW The Will of Mr. Greeley. ! a of at of by in The Greeley will case ha? entered upon a way of settlement which reflects severe discredit npon every one con cerned in it exert upon the orphan diiuiiicis oi -lr."Greeley, hLssolo heirs by his last w 11. These young ladies, who have been distressed beyond meas ure by the malisn-.uit and scandalous wrangling over the grave of their fath er, vesterday gave peremptory in structions to their counsel to make a full surrender of all their rights and interests in tho matter, aud to allow the executors of a former will full dis cretion in tha management of the affair. The formal dc. :!' -i of the Surrogate will be given next ( tk. and what re mains of Mr. Greeley's little property wi'lthenbe subject to the disposition of Mr. Storrs and Mr. Manning. The only excuse for this persistent r.nd apparently inexplicable opposition to the final disposition which Mr. Greeley made of his estate, waijthatie was msance at me urns 01 wrmng ice will, and for weeks previously? -01 .1 1. r . 1 1. prove this a number of easy-talking witnesses have been placed upon the stand, all holding decided opinions against the perfectly simple and nat ural provisions of the will, who have consumed several days in what may have appeared to them agreeable gos sip about the last days of their old. friend, in which every eccentricity of phrase, every utterance of melancholy which fell from his lips, was carefully remembered or ingeniously distorted, in a manner which furnished highly interesting manner for listless readers, and inflicted the keenest anguish upon all to whom he was dear. We know not what impression all these trivial reminiscences produced upon the mind of the Surrogate or of the public. They have certainly altered no jot of the con victions entertained in regard to Mr. Greeley's fatal illness by his nearest friends and associates. His death was the result of a life of continual over work. Tho prodigious mental labor of years prepared that critical state of nervous exhaustiou which rendered him incapable of supporting the blow inflicted by the death of his wife. During the last summer especially tho strain upon his powers was too great tor endurance. Obeying the summons of his political friends, he made thoso remarkable turs through New Eng land and the West, delivering a sales ol speeches which for variety, scope, and effectiveness have no parallel in all our history; and when, wearied and exhausted by these labors, and de pressed by the consciousness that the cause he represented was doomed defeat, he was called to the bedside of his dying wife. Ho watched for weeks by her pillow with unselfish and even imprudent devotion, and when the end came the injury dono to his high-wrought and sensitive or ganization was too great to be repaired. Acute inflammation of the membrane of the brain set in, which ran its course and ended in death . But before it was developed, while his reason still held its sway, he recognized tho fact that his fortune had been impaired by vari ous unfortunate investments in South ern railroads and the like, and especi ally by loans to persons who had pos sessed an undue degree of his confi dence. Since his latest will was made his wifo was also gone; and the circum stances being thus sadly and com pletely changed he concluded to cancel all former wiis, made in more pros perous times, and leave his entire property to his' daughters, to whose proper support unless more bad debts could be collected than seemed then (or seems now) possible it was barely adequate. Unfortunately he did not destroy former will made in 1871, in which two old friends, Messrs. Storrs and Man ning, and a business associate. Mr. Sin clair (w'ho is now a bankrupt debtor too estate.) were named as executors, For reasons satisfactory to these gen tlemen they concluded to contest tho will. Mr. Sinclair subsequently with drew. We wish to be understood making no charges against the perfect integrity of Messrs. Storrs and Man ning. They were doubtless influenced by no worse feeling than that Wounded self-esteem, though they finally persuaded themselves that their consciences required them stand between Mr. Greeley's daughters and his property, and their attitude the orphans of their friend has been that of frank and sincere hostilitv. They have seemed convinced that tho very fact of Mr. Greeley's making will in which their names were not mentioned was prima facie evidence of insanity. A neighbor of Mr. Gree ley, at Chappaqua, Mr. Isaiah T. Wil liams, who seems from the papers the hands of the temporary adminis trator to. do a aeotor to the estate. threw himself with especially energetic malice into the case, and has been throughout the moving spring of the opposition to the last will. Even on yesterday, after the surrender was complete, this man made a speech full of charges and insinuations so brutally malignant and recklessly untrue that seeme impossible that a person in his senses should have uttered it. . The tacts m favor of this will were plain and obvious. It was in itself better, more simple, more intelligible will than than the other. It made perfectly reasonable and logical dis position 01 tne property, it was writ ten throughout in the peaceful retire ment of Chappaxfua, in his own hand writing, and signed with his own name, while Mr. Greelev was still the active editor of the Tribune, writing daily articles irreproachable in thought and in manner, it was executed bis last hours, when the delirium of fe ver was over and the peace of approach ing dissolution was upon him. To offset these facts, the executors of the will 1871 had no resource but the accumula-J tion of gossip to prove the deep melan choly which clouded the last days tho great journalist. Nothing was sacred from these mousing investiga tors. They witnesses they called posi tively revelled in the sad details those hours of fever and sorrow. tho scandalous and distressing scene went on the family and friends of Mr. Greeley exhausted every expeelient compromise and persuasion. Miss Greeley had already forestalled any un generous insinuations by conveying her sister half of tho estate and by to satisfy the claims of nil lega tees by the former will. Nothing could soften the inflexible hostility the executors. A last effort was made by the editor of this paper, acting behalf of the Misses Greeley to arrive at some point of agreement which might obviate the shamelul spectacle of the long and useless quarrel. was made in vain. Tho executors with a decision and promptness which showed how deeply their feed ings of self-love were unconsciously They and their attorney pre pared a new batch of evidence, dealing with the most intimate details of long course domestic life, with the sick room and death-bed. At this point the fortitude or the orphans gave way. They preferred to sacrifice their own interests anato suner ineiasi win onneir father to go by the board rather than to expose the'sacred mysteries of his agony to tho gaze of.tho wolrd. They withdrew from the contest, and execu tors, who are honest and honorable men, are to be congratulated unon the completeness of their triump. A". . Tribune.

THE HOME OF JEFFERSON. Monticello In Litigation—A Complicated Case. of a by 8 in of re The former home of Thotna3 Jeffer son, says the Lynnchburg Republican, of January 12, located ou the Montieel lo mountain, near Charlottesville, Al bemarle county, is in litigation at present before tho Supreme Court of Virginia. It is well known that Mr. Jefferson expended a large fortune in a lavish hospitality and died poor. Mon ticello, his estate, was sold, and pur chased by Commodore Levy, of the United States Navy. Commodore Levy devised tho estate at his death to the United States, as trustee, for the purpose cf establishing an agricultural farm on which to educate to agricultu ral pursuits children of the warrant officers of the navy whoso" fathers were dead. In aid of this scheme he also devised $300,000 worth of property in New York. In the event of the Unit ed States not accepting the trust, he provided that tho State of Virginia not accepting the trust, ho devised tho property to the Porugose Hebrew con gregations of , New Y'ork, Philadelphia and Baltimore for the benefit of the children of those societies whoso fath ers were dead. His legal heirs brought suit in New York to set aside these provisions of the will. The Court in New York declared the charity too in definite, and that tho Uniteel States could not take the property as trustee. Virginia not beiug a party to the suit, Instituted a suit for its recovery as sec ondary trustee. Tho case is at present being exhaustively argued in the Su preme Court of Virginia, now in ses' sionin Richmond. Pinchback on the Situation. Mr. Pinchback, of Louisiana "Gov ernor Pinchbaet, by courtesy," as Gen. McMillan, says is reported to have summed up the situation of Lou isiana affairs about in this wise: The "Lynch Board" wa3 the legal board, but it had no official returns; the "Do Ferrit Board" was illegal, but had the official returns. The legal board could make no legal returns without the official returns, and the il legal board could make no legal re turns without them; cousequentlp, no legal returns were uiade. Senator Morton and General Butler, whom he considers the most extreme of the Republicans, he doesn't believe can go so far as to recognize the Kel logg Government, and. no ono will recognize that of McEnc-rjV I' TiT In this predicament the only thing to be done is that Congress shall pro ceed under that clause of the Constitu tion which provides that the United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a republican for.-j of gov ernment, and declare that; no such government exists in Lqujoianp, and provide for its establishment by an election to lie held uncer Federal au spices. . " In this event it is by no means -certain that the Republicans would carry tho day. Mr. Pinchback thinks that the Republicans have a majority of the votes in the State, but says that all the money and most of the energy is on the other side-. In the absence of a national canvas the Republicans can get no material aid outside otthe State, and therefore cannot bring out their full vote. Besides that, the colored voters supposed that a Republican Ad ministration and Congress would sus tain theai in any event, and they will fall into apathy when they find them selves, as they, well suppose, deserted. A Convict Artist. - The Boston Post, in the coarse of f n interesting article on the Massachusetts State Prison, thus describes one of the prisoners: . . j;, .- In the same room is a man by the name of Darling, who fa also serving out a life sentence, for highway rob bery. He has been here several years, and is yet a young man. He is a line looking convict and yet a young man, a genius, and notwithstanding the fact of his imprisonment, he asserts his de termination that tbe world shall yet acknowledge his power. He is a re markably good artist, and he showed, at the request of the officer, a piece of work on which he was engaged, and which he intended for a present to lady in Cambridge, who has been very kind to him. It is au illustrated copy of Gray's Elegy, which ho is making, printing ami all, with pen and brush. Thelitle-page is.exquisitely illustrated and all the illustrations are as carefully finished as steel .engravings- The drawing is spiriteel and the whole con ception good. He has seized the spirit of the poem with a ' correctness and fklelity that show an entire apprecia tion. 'He i3 justly. very proud of his workand his eyes shone as praise fol lowed on examination of it.-. . , "Has.it taken you long?". . ... "Eitrht months to do what you see there; but I can only work at it about an hour and a half a day. If I could j but give my whole time to it" and he. 1 turned away to the drudgery of his ! cvervdav toil. -This man was made tor better things, but he went wrong, and by his own action made his life failure, and to such . rare promise brought such sad fulfillment. . Tobacco Versus Intellect. A t the nearest "csiculatiori the inter nal revenue report of last year showed that the United Sta tes consumed about ten million cigars during that time. Many old smokers prefer the pipe the cigar, and probably as much tobac co is consumed in that way. as in ci gars. However out of the way numer ically the previous statement may be, it is true that that there are in this country 12,294 manufacturers of cigars, and they employ 71,491 men. Where ever tobacco can be raised, the farmer finds it one of the most .profitable crops, and consequently is very apt cultivate it. Its use . increases from year to year in a greater ratio than the population. . People differ so widely to its effects that it is only just, when ever a candid statement is made of any test, to give it publicity. Recently, the Polytechnic School in Paris, one the professors inquired into the habits of the one hundred and sixty students there, and then made a comparison be tween their devotions to study and smoke. He found that one hundred and two were smokers and fifty-eight never used, or "said they never used, the noxious weed. He then found that in each grade of the school the stu dents who did not smoke, out-ranked those who did smoke, and that the scholarship of the smokers steadily de teriorated as tho smoking continued. On account of several trustworthy re ports of such a nature the Minister Vnhlip Instruction in France issuea circular to the directers of colleges and schools forbidding tobacco to students as injurious to physical and intellectual development. But a writer in a Paris medical journal complains that the use of tobacco will Dot probably cease en tirely so long as Sunday schools fur nish meerschaum pipes as prists to tne best scholars.
