of the editors of that delectable place.
The columns of one of the dailies is, the
Major assures us. presided over by a
stately young Colonel who carries him

ditionary Colonel of the "swallow-tail"
era. Hu looks over his exchanges as

Pickett will be In hotter water than the

make as ranch fuss as a Bantam rooiter

If tbe Louisville Couricr-Journal Is
good authority, thu South Is a section of
easy political virtue. "If," says that
paper, " Allen carries Ohio by an over
whelming majority, the South will unite,
as one man. upon Allen and greenbacks,
for 70. if Allen Is beaten, tho South will
unite upon Tilden and hard money. In
one event wc shall fly the ling of repudi
ation, In the other the ensign of reform.
The South is thus a political adventurer
and the North has made It so. W'e aro
ripe lor enterprises and ready for any-'
thing and everything that turn v- lk
is our nuture to be slow amUionest. Let
us alone, gWo us a fair currency anil a
decent tariff, release us from bondage,
political and mors), and we shall be well
content to pay our share of the public
debt, foreign and domestic. Keep us In
suspense, relusc us justice, and, not un
naturally, we shall look to revolutions to
secure us what might better have come
through conservative agencies. Inflation
Is revolution. We do not prefer it, but,
used to misfortunes, wc mo nut nimlii of
It. The truth Is we have been so prostl
tuted that wc are afraid of nothing,
and shall shape our course us we think
wc see the cat jump. The Ohio eat seems
sufllclently lively nnd black, and if It
Jump high enough in the air we shall toss
our caps after It. If It miss its mark,
however, we shall kick It with the rest of
the country."
It is a favorite complaint of the Cairo
people, of her merchants, her mechanics
und herl aborers, that business is dull,
trade flat, times hard. The tune has
been sung until It has grown to be mo

the hope of moving out of hearing of the
dolorous melody, arc turning their backs
on Cairo and seeking other homes. But

Ever since Senator Thurman permitted
Ids party In Ohio to clvo utterance to pe
culiar financial views nnd then ntlcniitcd
to explain them In Ids own way, he has
been getting Into trouble. Before that
time he was highly regarded by men of
nil parties, nnd every one said, "He 1 n
man of ideas, who U not afraid to defend
Ids principle ngalnt all coiners ; he will
be President yet. ' But, luec Ids great
mistake his distinguished innniic.Mntion
of timidity people have begun to say,
"Poor Thurman ; what n pity !'' The
Senator Is not unaware of the drift of
popular sentiment, and Is therefore quer
ulotis. I.tkenllmeu of his kind timid
men of well-defined fdeas on political
subjects, having fulled' to give utterance
to his views when "iicli utterance would

utterance was demanded of him.

who will read .Senator Thurmairn eon
versation Willi air. Hieoiloro Cool; at 1
Put-lu-Bay lately. In It he said hu had
no respect for Mr. Cary, the Democratic
candidate lor Lieutenant Governor of
Ohio; that Cary was a political adven
turer, narrow-minded, perfectly unprin
cipled, totally unbalanced; that he was
a demagogue and out-and-out Commu
nist. The Senator did not stop here. He
went on to say that the "d d priests
hail over-done the thing by sticking their
noses Into polities, and ought to be
beaten to leach them their places; that
the Democracy was the only party that
had ever done anything for the Catholics,
and that It seemed the more that w as
done for them the more they demanded.
J l Is true Senator Thurman denies
that he gave utterance to these expres
sions, but the correspondent makes "nlll
davlt that he did.
Jfoi-ovcr this may be, it Is nut to be
denied that Mr. Thurmuu is in a very
rceablu position.

of the Kuklux troubles, suld :
"The governor has been severely criti

The world 1?, and always has been, agi
tated over the wrongs and onnrcsslonsof
illflereiit rneos. In our countrv the bub
by of slavery with Its horrors caused a
long and terrible war. Prom that time
we may date the wonnirs rights cause
proper, although the subject had been
agitated as far back as l&JO. Since the
subject has been under discussion, alten
tlou has been drawn to erueltv practiced
on animals; this is certainly commenila
hie, but has, In some eases, been carried
to extremes. Now, if pcoiile must
not be allowed to oppress or expend their
anger on persons In a great measure able
to protect themselves, nor upon their
horses iind dogs, why Is It that helpless,
Innocent children, who ureofro much
more importance than animals at least,
must bear the brunt of It all ? Children's
rights are but partially understood they
no wronged and olien wronged by
those whose duty it is to throw out every
safeguard and protection. '"'Pis true,
'tis pity, and pity 'tis true," that chil
dren whose very helplessness and inno
cence should be an appeal to every heart
for love, mercy and protection, should
be the greatest sufferers in the
laud from injustice. It cannot
be said they arc wronged Intentionally,
but strange to say, because tills impor
tant subject has not had siilllcicnl
thought ami attention. The education of
girls Is, us a general rule, superficial.
All the general facts and principles of
the world should bo the common properly
of both sexes, and should be acquired lu
such a manner as to be systcmati.cilsoas
to be made available in after life. The
laws of life and health are subjects much
neglected, yet they are of far more Im
portance than trashy nccomplMiments
on which so much time and money are
spent. No mother, whatever her .-ration
In life mav be. should f el that she had
lullllled her duly toward her daughters
until they were tauaht to govern a house

in me neglect of this
duty, for does It not totally unfit them
for the highest, nio-t honorable position
that woman can desire, that of mother?
When the daughter marries and a babe Is
born, more frequently than otherwise, Ills
given luto the hands ot an ignorant nurse
who has no idea of the responsibility she
h.is assumed ; regardless ot screams, It Is
scrubbed and bandaged so tight that it
lias more the appearance of a mummy
than anything else ; then It must be fed,
and us It was bandaged on an empty
stomach, there Is no room tor expansion;
of course, that cau-es the child to be fret
fill and restless; nurse concludes the littlo
darling has thu colic, and niiht have
some tea, another strain on the little
stomach already tilled to Its utmost ea
paclty ; then it must bo trotted and Jolted
to ease the pain, until It Is a wonder that
language Is not given it to cry out against
Ignorance ami inhumanity, Of course,
the mother utters no protest, as she Is as
Ignorant as the nur.-e, and permits her to
assume all responsibility. It is a shame
that Innocent, helpless infants are exper
imented 011 as they are, especially tho
Ill's! In a family, lu rellceting on the dif
ficulties children have to overcome, the
wonder U, not that they often develop In
such monstrous caricature on Immunity,
hut that they ever develop at all. Those
who are fortunate or unfortunate enough,
tis tho case may be, to sun lye the trou
bles ami diseases of babyhood soon Hud
tho world was not uiado for children.
Society was made for grown people and,
in its organization, tho needs and wants
of children were not consulted. If vou
have never thought of it in this light go
through n city In search of houses or
apartments. Generally before credentials
are required, the question will be asked:
"Have you children V" If you are so un
fortunate, neither for love or money, can
you be accommodated. In hiring servants
their first question Is: "Have you chil
dren, and how many?" It teems almost
Ilkeollerlng a premium on child-murder.
The little creatures, boys especially, are
kept like wandering Jews, or tho dove
from the ark ; there Is no rest for them ;
no freedom about the house; papa can
not read If they aro hi thu room with
him ; they arc obliged to do something
to umime themselves , furniture Is too ex
pensive to play with ; they are not allow,
ed to cut paper, or whittle on the carpet,
as an untidy room is by no means a pleas
ant sight, and gives visitors an Idea that
mamma is anything but a good
housekeeper. No one likes to be
constantly rearranging ami putting
tilings lu order, mamma cannot spare tho
time, sisters cannot be expected to put
down mi Interesting novel to attend to
their wants, untie knots, mako kites, or
tell them stories; unheeding pitiful plead-
tug,, nud dkninohitcd sorrowful little
faces, on being told to "go nwny, don't
bother me, don't you see I am reading,"
or Iflthe sight caue? a feeling of remorse
It ls'erushed with Iho thought that their
wants me of no consequence and will
soon be forgotten; cook will not have
them In the kitchen; nurse will not be
troubled with tliuiu more than she can
avoid; now is it to be wondered at, that
boys so soon learn to seek pleasure away
from home. Much harm Is done children
through repcct to their clothes. True,
there Is no ptetlier sight than clean, well
dressed children, but the restraint put
upon them in order to keep theni so,
dor not rccoinpfii'i! either mother or
children lor he deprivation of the com
forts and plei.?iuc they might enjoy, to
say nothing of the loss of exercise so
much needed for their physical develop
ment, i'or the privilege of getting out
of the house where there Is no freedom,
away from the haled injunction ol to
"be careful not to make a 110U0,
kick the carpets, or scratch the
furniture," children make prom
ises which slionld never be required,
although Muile hi good faith, lu nine
eae out often Ihey will come homo willi
torn dree, p.uits, and with "hoes rub
bed out at the toe". On being iiuectloMcd
they resort to falsehood to hide the shame
of breaking their promises ; they are de
tected, anil then require piiuthiucnt for
two offences Instead of one. Tho eH'cet
on tho child Is sad indeed, lor out of a
desire to appear honorable and true, they
become false and mean; from thu require
ment of such piomUes, fal-ihood Is gen
erally the result ilrst to protect their
honor, afterwards it will be done
witli ilc-lgii to avoid detection and pun
ishment, lor the natural dc-lru for inno
cent, childhood sports Is too strong to be
resisted. lor the mass ol children born
in cities there Is no proper exercise,
hence the fact that the children of tho
poor arc squalid and sickly, while those
of the fame class In the country are
plump and healthy. Those ol the
wealthier class who have means at their
disposal, neglect giving their children

Wo raise our children as we were raised ;
although we may have the most perfect
conliduice in our parents and
should feci that they used every

children proper training, yet tills answer
will not even satisfy our own coueieuce
if we give Jho subject attention

Vrovldonce, ll.ey give n ca-t of character,
the Influence of which may be n matter
ol pleasure or pain to themselves and
those they are connected with, long after
they have ceased to act hi the present
scene. The good or evil Influence of our
lives will be felt long alter we are for
gotten, or may take such a range as to be
felt whero our names will never bo
heard. It lias been well observed ly a
modern writer : "That the motives to
exertion, furuMird by the poseslon of
children, are n powerful as ever moved
heart or hand; the secret ol many a
struggle In Urn's battle may be found at
home; the man who has children depen
dent upon him will and must struggle
manfully against the most adverse cir
cumstances. The thought that the Joy
of their young lives depends upon his
courage, perseverance and energy
will enable hlin to work wonders, and
achieve what will appear impossibilities
to the man who lias only his own selfish
needs, his oriiselllsh ambition to urge
him on" ; awl there is no suerillce too
great for u nolher to mako for her chit
dren j but Inw often the ease, with the
best Iiitentiiiis, parents fail to make home
a paradise, mil in consequence of Unit
failure, children are glad to meet with op
portunitie- for going out into the world.
Parents ate not necessarily their best
guardians, as their selfish lovo too frec-
queutly blinds ilium to tho Interests of
their children. Now, the question of dis
cipline is the most diftlctilt of all the de
tails connected with the proper manage'
incut of.ehlldreu. Discipline commonly
means suppression und correction, by the
most enlightened, the teiicliln
ot self-control nnd obedience
by siuli appeals to tho reason as a child
can understand. It is not best to Insist
on blind obedience; by giving a reason
child yields much more readily; wo our
selves prefer n reason before doing any
thing. Would It not seem strange if we
did not i It should bo remembered that
the allictlons of a child are Its conscience
the on) v one It knows, and Is only to be
managed by loyo or fear. It is only ex
ner 1'neit ileit nroiluces thought, mug-
mint and reflection; until these have
come by time, there is but the affections
of tho child on wnlch parents and teach
ers can work. Tho season of childhood
is onu of thu greatest enjoyment and
Mitl'eringj H Is also the season of deep and
lasting impressions; hence, the great Im
portance of proper curly training; It Is
the time when the principles of truth and
honesty should bo instilled. A spoiled
child never makes a noblo man, though
after circumstances may modify, but can
never entirely change the direction of
that early laid foundation. Then docs It
nut behoove us to see that foundation
uobty planned and firmly laid? Spoiling
by oyer indulgence makes children ut
tcily unlit for tho trials and crosses of
life no one can ward off, if they nro not
taught to control and subdue thcnHivci;
ttl0 when lllld HOW, In unminnn
their own will, but there h nothing
more pernicious than spoiling ti ohihl'g
disposition by severe corrcctlonsl and
harsh word". Children need inoro sym
pathy than they generally receive ; those
who think them happier than grown peo
ple reason falsely. They consider that
the causes which make it child unhappy
would be Inadeqilte to produce such an
effect on man. True; but that Is not
judging eaife by effect; n willingly
ngne that childhood is the season 01 me
greatest enjoyment. If so, does It not
stand to reason that their capacities for
suffering would be equally great? .More
especially a their reasoning faculties are
not stilllclently developed to nllonl much
comfort, and there Is certainly none to
be derived from being told that they are
seeing their best day, and that trouble
onlv come with the responsibilities of
mature year-". They will not believe It
then, nor can they later In life. Who
doe not feel that most of I he keen un-
gul-h of tliclr life cannot be icferred to
the days of the childhood; to say noth.
Ing of their eaiiK's, whether real or Imag
inary, the remembrance will never be
obliterated whllu memory holds her
sway. Children suffer the most poignant
grief from Injustices and that suffering Is
Incrca-ed by the utter helplessness of their
case. Willi some the sen-e of Justice is
developed early, and where the -eligibilities
aro great, circumstances may be such
that a child may feel that he is the most
wronged creature In the world. 1 hey arc
often made to feel that It is u-eless to tell
tho truth, except It be simply for truth's
sake, as they find they get no credit for
o doing. With but few exceptions, chil
dren would be more honorable nud truth

tho injustice half so deeply as the child,

an organization of tliu tax-payers anil

of building up the material interests of
the city. In discussing tho various ques

drawn to the school system, and at the
last meeting of the association resolutions
were adopted in relation to tho existing
evils and proposing remedies therefor.
Tho preamble sets forth tho constitu
tional provision for A tree school system,
and declares that
"The public schools, as now conduct
ed, appear to bo carried on upon princi
ples clearly In violation of the organized
Jaw of tho State, and in consequence, a
great burden of taxation Is thrown
upon tax-paycrij without warrant of
Thu resolution commits thu association
to a liberal support of thu public .schools

provisions of thu constitution, but de
clares uu opposition to the extension ot
the system beyond the "good common
school cduiatlon" there provided. The
resolution also declares that taxes Im
posed for extending the system beyond
thu constitutional limit aro illegal, and the
members pledgo themselves "to uso nil
lawful means to prevent thu Imposition of
such taxes and to couliuo the uso of thu
public schools to the limits above Indi
cated. Of course, the position of the associa
tion Is absolutely perfect, In a legal sense.
The proposition that, as tho constitution

ing, and will be til Carbomtale this even

member that one week ago a gentleman
from Franklin coiuitv visited (lovernor
Beverldge and held a consultation with
him, nud that the name of this person was
wuuiiciu at tnai tune, it is now Known
that be Is Capt .lohn II. llogan, who was
an olllcer hi Company C, loth Illinois
cavalry. It appears that hu hud some
time ago pro-eeuted one of the gang for
selling Honor to Ids son, and had suc
ceeded lu having tho dealer lined. The
KtiK'iux nan uotiueii 111111 01 tneiriuteiitiou
to visit I1I111 and make him pay over the
amounts collected iroin the dealer. Capt.
llogan was also advied of the intention
ol the Kuklux to visit Mr. Maddox, ami
he, therefore, after con-nlting some ol
the leading citizens of Benton came hero
and consulted with tho governor. 1 be
re tilt was the shipment of one hundred
Kulleld rilles nud ammunition to Capt.
Ilugan's order at Mel.eansboro. Ho re
turned t ) Benton nud took the arms
there on Monday Iroin .Mel.eansboro,
and was present at the public meeting on
Tuesday. It was at that meeting that it
was deeided Mr. Barr should comu here.
Ills visit here has been fully reported ex
cept that thu policy agreed upon between
him and file governor lias not been
divulged. It is pretty certain, however,
that a telegram was sent to I Ion. duo. I.
Van Dor-ten, l.'nited States Attorney
for the Southern ili-trict of this State,
uskiugUilm to conic here. He arrived
tlds morning and has begun to prepare
papers tor the arret and trial of thu vil
lains under the Kuklu laws of the
Culled State-. Cant, llogan has been
sent for alo, and will probably ho here
to-morrow. There seems no doubt the
plan of action agreed upon Is that the
local authorities shall break up thu gang
and then they shall bo tried under the
Ulilteil smirs mw.
Tim Kincruor received to-day from !.
.1. Ilurr, trea-urer of Jackson county, a
telegram stating that n militia company
bad been orgaui.ed 111 that county nnd
akiug for arms and ammunition." Thu
governor ordered one hundred breech-
loaders and llve.thous.iml cartridges ship-
pen to him nt once, and these means of
iieaee anil persuasion left here to-night.
It Is also noteworthy that tho governor
directed that the mustcr-rolU of the
company bo sent here at once, so that the
organization might bo regular, and tho.-e
rules of ted tape so much admired by
that respected public functionary,
the late .lames Buchanan, be duly re
There Is now a company organized in
each of the Kuklux counties and they
win uouniicss nave a nappy effect, espe
cially if the governor should direct n bat-
laiiou organization and put them under
me oruers 01 an active major.

ngogue, one whose great forte Is to ap
peal to the passions of his hearers. It
fact, ho considered Cary to bean out-and
out Communist. As for himself, tho
.Senator said under no circumstances
would he speak at the samu meeting
where ham Cary was to speak, for his
own scll-roipect toruuilo linn to be seen
111 bis company. Ho said ho never
heard Cary but twice In his life,

house, some vears auo. but his vltunern
tlvo abuse of men who dealt ill liquors
was so violent and slanderous that he
only remained a few minutes, and came
away disgusted. Tho next time ho heard
Sam was at Zuncsv lie. ilurhiL' Iho cam

an appointment to speak. lieu hu ar
rived at the nlacu ot mecthi'r ho found
much to his surprise, that Sam Cary was
announced as onu of Iho sneakers, and hu
was compelled lu spite of himself to lis

Mr. Cook remarked that it was very
unfortunate for tliu Democracy that the
Calholio question had been brought lu ;
that It was going to result lu many Dem
ocrats voting with tho Kepubllcans, and
in many more staying away from the
polls. He feared that this alone would
looso the State to Iho Democracy.
Mr. Thurman replied empirically:
"Yes , wc shall loso tho State. T Uu tl tl
priests have over-done the thing by stick
ing their noses luto our polities; and
they deserve fo lie beaten lo tench theni
their nlacc. The Democracy have
only themselves to blame hi
suiimitting to the demands of tue pncstH
hi tho way they did. It was unfortunate,
indeed, that thu Catholic ipiestlon was
lugged Into thu campaign. Tho Dem
ocracy was tho only party that ever did
m.jiliing for the Catholics, and It would
seem that the more that Is done for them
the more- they will demand, Their arro
gance Is insufferable, and as we shall he
defeated anyway, l hope It will hereafter
teach theo meddlesome priests n lesson
they will understand that Is, to let poli
tics alone. I, lor one, don't propose to
stand anv further nonsense from these
The Senator went on to defend the po
sition he look In his Maulield speech,
saying that he had been most outrage
ously abused and misrepresented by tin'
Bepubllcan press ; that 11111I hu come out
llat-footedly lu opposition to (he financial
plank in the State platform, he would
have been more bltteily abused by Ids
own party prims ; that he was accused
by the llcpublicaii press for the position
he had taken lu that speech, therefore
that position wis tie ,Pct for liN own
personal Interest.
The above icport of the conversation
N correct, as far ns statements uttered
weio concerned. The language may
vary a little. His expression hi regard
to Cary, the priests, and acknowledging
that the Slate Is lost, are given lu his ex
act language.
