In tbe Sava'e Club Papers ia civen the following letter by Artemus Ward, lie sav8 ; 1 wan sitting in tbe bar quietly smokin a frngal pipe, when two middle aged and tern looking females and a young aud pretty female suddenly entered the room. They were accompanied by two urabrel len and a negro eentlemnn. "Do you feel for the down trodden T" said one ef the females, a thin-faced and sharp voiced person in green spectacles. "Lo I feel for it?" answered the lan'lord, in nuzzled voice ' Do I feel lor it f "Yes; for the oppressed, the benitodt" "Insomuch ai to which? " said the lan' lord. "You see this man?" said the female, nintin' her umbreller at the ne gro gentleman. "Yes, marm, I see him." "lesl said the teoialo, raisin ner voice to an exceeditfc high pitch, "you see him. and he's your brother ! ' "No, I'm darned if he is," said the lan'lord, hastily retreatin' to bis beer casks. "And yours I " shouted the excited female, ad dressing me. "lie is also your brother." "No, I think not, marm, I pleasantly replied. "Tho nearest we come to that color in our fam'ly was in the case of my brother John. lie had the janders seve ral years, but they finally left him, I am happy to stale that at the present time he haBu't a solitary jander." "Look at this man," screamed the female. I looked at him. He was an able-bodied man, well dressed, comfortable lcokine nrirro. He looked as though he might heave three or four good meals a day into him without a murmur. "Look at that down trodden man! " cried the fe male. ' Who trod on Dim t I inquired. Villins I despots! "Well, Bald the lan'lord. "why dont you go to the wilhns about it? Why do you come here tellin us niggers is our brothers, and brandish in' your umbrellers round like a lot of lunatics? You' ro wuss than tbe sperit rarjDers." Have you," said a middle- aied female No. 2, who was a quieter sort ot person, "have you no Bentimeni no poetry in your soul no love for the beautiful ? Dost never go into the green fields to cull the beautiful flowers ? "I not only never dost," said the lan'lord, in an angry voice, "but I'll bet you five pounds you can t bring a man as dares say I durst" "The little birds," con tinued the female, "dost not love to gaze onto them?" "I would I were a bird, that I might fly to thou," I humorously sung, casting a sweet plunce at the pretty young woman. "Don't you look in that way at my dawter, saia iemaie no. i, in a violent voice; "you are old enough to be her lather. " iwas an innocent ook, dear madam, I softly said. lou bohcld in me an emblem of innocence and purity. In fack, I start for Rome by the first train to-morrer, to sit as a model to the celebrated artist who in about to sculp a statue, to ' be called Sweet Innocence. Do you s'pose a sculptor would send for me for that pur pose ouless he know'd I was overflowin' with innocency? Don't make an error about me." "It is my opinyn," said the leadin' female, " that you are a scoffer and a wretch! Your mind is in a wus ser beclouded slate than the poor ne groes we are seeking to aid. You are a groperin the dark celler of sin. O sin ful man ! " There is a sparkline luunt. Come, 0 come and drink. No; you will not come and drink." " Yes he will," said the landlord, if you'll treat. Jest try him. As lor you," said the enraged female to the an lord, you are a aegraaea oein, iuo n .,,d wule&r to talk to." " This is the sparklin fount for me, dear sister I " cried the lan'lord, drawiug and drinking muir of beer. Having uttered which goak, he gave a low rumblin larf, and re laxed into silence. " My colored fren'," I said to the negro kindly, "what is it all about?" He said they was tryin to raise money to send missionaries to the Southern .States in America to preach to tbe vast number of negroes recently made free there. He said they were without the gospel. They were without tracks. I said, " My fren', this is a seris matter. I admire you for trim to blp tbe race to which yoa belong, and far be it from me to sav anything arm carryin the gospel among tbe blacks of the South. Iet the gospel gs to thera by all means. But I happen to individually know that there are some tbousaada of liberated blacks in tbe South who are slarvin. 1 . ', v,aje anbody for this, but it is a very sad fact, w- . i . , work, some can't eel work a3 ou others are too foolish to see any necessity i for workin. I was down there last win ter, and I observed that this class had i plenty ot preachin for their souls, but akarce any villles for thiir stummux. Now, if it is proposed to srnd dour and bacon along with the gor-, the idea is re "y a excellent one. H, on the t other hand, it is I rcjusti to seud prcathio LP .UJ 1 J hs&&m MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE, TIIUKSDAY EVENINGJUNE 13, 1S67. alone, all I can say is that it's a hard case for the niggers. If you expect a colored person to get deeply interested in a tract when his siummuck is empty, you expect too much." I gave the negro as much as I could afford, and the kind hearted lan'lord did the same. I said, " Farewell, my fron'. I wish you well, certainly. You are now as free as tho eagle. Bo like him and soar. Rut don't attempt to convert a Ethiopian person while bis stummuck yearns for vittles. And you, ladies I hope you are ready to help tbe poor and unfortunate abroad." When thpy had gone, the lan'lord said, "Come into the garden, Ward." And we went in and culled some carrots for dinner. THE ROAD TO RUN. How Two Young Olrla Have Been Traveling It A Sad Story. From the Cincinnati Commercial, 7th. a Two young girls, one of sixteen only, another but three years her senior, daughters of resoectablo citizens in com fortnble circumstances, are the unfortu- n a to subjects of this sad story of dc nurture from home, from friends, from decency and from virtue. The elder of of these two victims ol waywaruness, Miss Louise, is the daughter of a nreacher: the younger, and less expe rienced and confirmed reprobate, has always had a good home, with hor father, a mun of buHineps. The two girls have not bceu long intimately associated, only for a few months past, we believe. Tbe older, a sprightly, well educated and rather fascinating girl, has been longer nnder tbe bane of evil influence thau her younger companion, had, in fact, been led astray before the two became well acquainted. The story told now, is thut the younger girl, Mollie, was the most forward of a circle of young girls of good families, who are lpoked upon by young men of their acquaintance as unusually bold and wild in their behavior, for young girls of their age. 1 he facts are these: Un the 23d day of May last, in the absence of Louise s father from the city, the two planned to escape from their homes, and enter a house of evil fame! They ar rived at this determination after much rlnliheration. fur they had bee a talking of it, at times, for weeks. Tho spirit of lewdness and wickedness seemed to nave taken full possession of them. They encouraged each other in tneir conspi racy against their own welfare, by talking over repeatedly and magnifying to large proportions the petty grievances of their home life, until they had convinced themselves and each other teat each was a sadly abused young woman, and that their only means ot nappiucss was to o fnii nd in a life of shame. They had planned to do thus and so on tho 2.'d of May but were frustrated. I be elder girl had made an understanding with a wealthy young man, and had confided to him their little plaJJB of future happi ness. When this young gentleman studied over the aflair in a cool condi tioti of mind, he came to the conclusion that tor his own safety he had better break tho engagement and apprise the father of his daughter's intentions. He did this, and thus was the plan spoiled. The would-be runaways could not secure thtir clothin?. However, they soon con eluded to leave without their clothing, and in tbe course of two or three days their bed rooms were found vacant when breakfast was announced. The elder girl had made arrangements that secured them admittance to several houses, in their efforts to avoid discovery bv their parents and tbe officers who were set upon their track. They went to sev eral bad houses of the first class on Wixth, Third and Sycamore streets s eerjine here and eating there, taking breakfast in one bouse, dinner in another and supper at a third; always moving, in their determined ettorts to escape irora all restraint. Ihey inado a trip to Louisville, storming at a notorious house conducted by Jennie J,aws. n hue there, ast Sunday, they received warning lrotn one of their associates here, by telegraph, that detectives were going to Louisville and Indianapolis in search of tbem. Concluding that they would he saler undercover in Cincinnati while tbe hunt was elsewhere, they immediately returned here, stopping at a Jhird street house. They were discovered, however, by an acquaintance, who informed their parents that ihey had returned. The fathers, in company with Sergeant Williams, of the Ninth street District Jonce, commenced a new search night before last, and at about four o clock yesterday mormug captured thera. They took them imme diately to the Ninth street Station and locked them within cells there. During yesterday they had an opportunity to study, in tbe society of their degraded cell neighbors, the future that they had courted to heur language from the lips of women so degraded as to be horrible in their moral ugliness: language beyond the conception, in its profanity and vul garity, of any but the most degraded mind. Tho younger girl shuddered and wept, and shrunk away into a corner of her cage. The other, who had all along acted, in a measure, as her protector, curled her lin in scorn and maintained her compo sure. She quietly remarked, "I have turned out. and 1 II never turn bacK ; but you will never find me siukingsolow as that, I ean take better care of my self." "You dont know anything about it, child," said a harlot who occupied the next cell. " You've only taken a few lessons ; you haven't graduated yet in this school." The vounner cirl was taken out by her f.ilher and committed to the House of Relume. Tho other was liberated last evening, being nineteen years of age She ia probably irreclaimable. A SENSATIONAL STORY. Kevival of an Old Superstition A Young Man Visited by a Vampire. From Wheeling (West Va ) Rd.-i.-tcr, May 31. There is an old superstition, dating back to the Greeks and Romans, that bodies of persons who die under sentence of excommunication do not decay, but devour tbeir ewn fjesb, and duriug the night leave their graves and suck the Wood of liviDg persona. This old super stition has been revived in this city uudr extraordinary circumstances. A young mil "bo boards at one of our most rvtrecUblc bearding houses has for some wetks rkl -en growing weak and pale from tie loss of blond during the nigl.t. for some time he could not imagine the caae fcf tie JassituJe he laAROEST CITY CIRCUaULTION. felt every morning, but about a week airo he discovered a small puncture on his arm, fro hi which it was evident that blood bad been drawn, and every morn itig thereafter he found a new puncture npon some fleshy portion ol his body, lie was mystified as to how those punc tnroa were made and what made them. For several nights he Remained awake late in the night for the purpose of solv ing the mystery, but such was his weak condition he invariably became exhaus ted and fell asleep before morning, and always found a fresh puncture, lie got an acquaintance to sleep witn mm, out becoming tired of watching, he, too, fell asleep, and in the morning there was a fresh puncture upon both of thera, which so alarmed his acquaintance mat ne re fused to sleep in that room again. Be' tween the loss of blood and his anxiety to know tho cause of it, the ycung man was nearly crazed, presenting a haggard and careworn' appearance, and he was an object of solicitude to bis friends, who sympatnizea witn aim in ins ais tross. and advised a change in scene: but such was tbe fascination with which ho had become imbued that nothing tbey could say could induce him to forego his determination to remain and elear up the mystetf. His body by this time was a strange sight; almost completely covered with small swellings from the punctures; which were a source of irritation. A few nights ago ho was awoke by a stinging sensation in his arm between the elbow and shoulder, and instantly reached bis hand to the spot, but could feel nothing, and, although a light was burning in tbe room, could see nothiug. i he old super stition of vampires at once became fixed npon his mind, and be resolved to leave tho house, which bo did the next morn ing, rcpairiug to another part of the city. Strange to say, since his change of quarters he has not been again visited by the midnight blood-sucker, and is fast regaining his health. Since bis story has become known, we have heard of several other persons who ocenpied the same room that were visited in tho same way, but they never stayed more than a few nights beforo they left the house and said nothing about it for fear of injuring the reputation of the house. We have given the facts as they were related to us, and bttvo no reason to doubt the veracity of tbe parties ; but we have no faith what ever in the superstition regarding vam pires, and are inclined to think that the blood loving visitant was more of a ma terial than supernatural creature. Wc have suppressed the names of the parties concerned in this strange affair at their own request. GRAB AT THE TREASURY. If we have said little on the subject of the outrageous impeachment of Judge Frazier, it is not because we have been indifferent Tbe Nashville Union and Dispatch, thus discusses the matter: Not satisfied at the turpitude of Judge Frazier's conviction, contrary to law and the eyidenoe, the majority of the Court of Impeachment could not permit the opportunity to pass without an effort to delraud the .treasury by drawing unlaw ful pay for their mischievous services. The pay of Senators, as such, is four dollars per day, and they cannot in crease that stipend during their term of office. But it seems that as a Court of Impeachment they rose above the con stitution, and proposed to dnaw a per diem of six dollars under color, we be hove, of some law or resolution enacted or passed by themselves. Not only so, but they also demanded forty per cent. on acoount of the depreciation of the legal tender currency ot tbe country. 'I heir demands upon tbe Treasury, thus mounted up from four dollars, to eight dollars and forty cents! They not only did this for the twenty-five or thirty days they were actually in session, but for eiahlu-six days the entire time inter veniug between the adjournment of the Senate on the 11th of March including that day fsr which tbey had already re ceived pay and the adjournment on yes terday. Such a cold-blooded and deliberate at tempt to obtain money from an overbur thened people, without the pretense of service, is, so lar as we know, unex ampled in the history of legislative bod ies. The expenses of this trial, inclu ding the pay of clerks, reporters, mes sengers, attorneys, printing, etc., will exceed the sum of twenty thousand dol lars. The pay of the members and at torneys alone, at this rate, would amount to seventeen thousand three hundred and odd dollars! And all to prosecute and degrade an iunocent victim of their dastardly malice whose shoos the best of them are to-day unworthy to loose. We learn that the Controller was so shocked and amazed at this infamous at tempt to plunder the public treasnry, that he refused to pay them more than tbe four dollars allowed by law, and that several of the graceless harpies have threatened him with suits, etc How long will the public close their eyes to the infiuite meanness of these Radical abusers ot puhlic trusts, and ae spiserB of public honesty and personal decency! Has the time not already come to hurl them from place as the children of hell were east down from the battlements of Paradise? We think it has; and should tbe people tolerate them oncer than till August, wken they have an opportunity to dispose of them, they will be no longer worthy ol trecaom or the name of freemen. The Late Ejection Fares at Washington The result of the late election at Wash ington City, by which the white popula tion was outvoted by a horde of negroes from Maryland and Virginia, was re ceived with asboutof joy by ibe Radical press, Tbe Washington Cunttiiulio savs of it: The wickedest frauds were not only winked at, but openly encouraged and perpetrated. Persons having no earthly right to vote, even under tbe liberal pro visions of the law of Congress extending the franchise, were registered, and their votes received, in defiance of every prin ciple of justice. Hundreds of black men living in Maryland and Virginia were marched to the voting places, and kept there until their votes were deposited, palpably ia violation of right The approaches to the polls were pur posely blocked up, tbe object clearly patent to all, being the wicked intent to keep those who were entitled to vole from fulfilling that purpose. Whea by agree ment in several of the ward divisions, alternate votes from double lines of w hue, and colored men were being taken peace ably, orderly and satiafattorily, fear of the result probably prompting it, the lines were broken cp by the police, under the orders of the chief, the white voters dnven off, leaving the colored men, who assumed to be voters, in quiet possession of the pells, protected by an armed po lice, who thus overawed the well known residents, by violent threats, angry scowls, and worse than despotio inter ference. We confess we have no heart to follow up this recital It grieves us to be compelled to state these facts, in the performance of an important duty as jonrnalista. PROFESSIONAL. Hit. JOE. 12.
