Our waggish friend of the Avalanche,
whose peculiarities have made him quite
notorious, published on yesterday one of
hie home-manufactured articles. When
read, the exclamation naturally follows:
What flummery I If, for lomething bet
ter to do, one should think of angling in
the muddy, sluggish wateri of a Western
bayou, thinking, perchance, to hook a
noble trout, but instead his bate ie swa
lowed down by an old male eel,
which, being brought to the eurface,
deGes all human handling, the angler
then experiences the same sensation
produced that we feel when, with a few
slices presented from the record of the Av
alanche, ita editor ie set to wiggling and
twisting in the most grotesque manner,
In an article of last Saturday our object
was merely to call our neighbor's atten
tion to the fact that the Conservative
Democratic ticket was not a( he claimed
it to be, the Senter universal auffrage
ticket ; and he at once replies in a lengthy
article, from which the publio is made to
infer that hii intention if to write oar
Lioernphy in the columns of bil Black
Republican sheet. The main question be
entirely jumps, and flies into the subject
of Imperialism with a vim that would
show he was angered because of our
claims to a dukedom nnder the new
regime, which in bis own imagination he
Las assigned us. We would suggest to
this editor not to conjure np such horrible
hobgoblins in thinking of the coming Em
pire; it only aerves to disturb hi own
republican dreams, when the Southern
public ie fully aware of the ruins that lie
around u of once great republic, and
tbe ntter hopelessness of rebuilding the !
old temple of our liberties out of such
material as has proven already unfit for
the purpose.
Tbe present hour demandt of every
true son of Tennes.ee to do all to seize
tbe opportunity for restoring temporary
order and protection until tome more
permanent and durable form of govern
ment may be established that ahall for
generations to come prove a blessing to
our American people. , That is why we
now act with the Conservative-Democratic
party, which our cotemporary has
most shamefully deserted. " How," says
oar ring, streaked and striped friend,
"can yon (we) be a Democrat and still
be in favor of Imperialism T" Well, to
allay our neighbor's feverish anxiety on
that point, and for bis own special
l.enefit. we will call onrselves a Con
servative-Democratic Imperialist ' Wt
would advise tbe editor of tbe AvautneM
to use his bottle of heartshora carried
about his person since joining the aegro
party after reading this, for (ear be may
set to riggling anew. He will evidently
think a single individual could hardly
live and do well believing all this
at once. But to explain, in word
almost: Tbe words Conservative-Democ
racy, as defined bv the committee ol
gentlemen in this county who organised
the rjsrtv soon after the war, was intended
to mean opposition to tha tyraoaical rule
of the Rtdical party in all of its oppres
sive measures intended to control and
humiliate the people of the South. It
mii means opposition to Radicalism.
which party we shall kick against ti the
day of our death. Imperialism will be
the last and great achievement by which
a nuietue will be eiven this Calledonian
beait that is now ravaging on the fairest
tinnion. of the American Continent. Ii
r
will be the establishment of a new order
of things, nnder which old prejudices and
hatred between the sections will be forgot
ten, and a glorious era ot prosperity win
dawn upon oar land. We trust in God
thai it m 11 v com, and that. too. sneedilv.
The editor of the AtalaneJu, in a fit of
liberality, assigns us toe position ot
Duke, with a real coronet, nnder Ut

and bia friends are content to wear wool

hai of late erown woolly all over, bnt
n&n't tinll the wool over oar eyes or I
eyee of this community. We are charged
ith doine thie martelously consistent
editor great injustice wben we call mm

ing 10 itrongly in Senter aud the aegro,
we con Id oeme to bat one conclusion
and that waa that he had gone over
"hone, foot and dragoon" to the Repub
lican aide. This sheet also complains ot
the lead in oar editorials, and from that
we n resume they weigh very heavily on
the editor. It ie only article! freighted
with inch aolid material that can ever
oenetrate our neighbor' thick and woolly
head, and for that reason we write eo

of the canvass.
Wendell Phillips an Grant-Martial

Bavins Fanatic
From the Ant! Slavery Standard.
General Grant was commended to tb
country as a man of few words, but sure
to mean even mora man ne saia, ana ie
do more than he would condescend to
promise. Tbe few words he had uttered
were all gathered np and made the most
of. The weighty sentences of tbe Del
phic orscle were never studied witb more
anxious car thao were his rare and
brief sayings. ...
A man wbo speak so seldom and with
such deliberation may fairly be presumed
to weigh all he says, and each sentence
so treasured and built on is a pieage, to
which tbe nation may not unreasonably
hold him. When he said, in 1866, "I
never could have believed that 1 should
favor giving negroes the right Unvote,
but that seems to me the only solution of
our difficulties," men felt assured that on
this point he might be traBtea ana
hence almost expected the countenance
which his inaugural gave to tbe Fifteenth
Amendment. Indeed General Grant
may be said to have heen elected more

On tbe promises ne nan inciaeoiaiiy

Why then is not martial law pro
claimed T He cannot olalm that circum.
stances have changed. Ueojgia, lex as
and Mississippi remain still in the same
condition, to far as their relation to the
nation is concerned, as they held when
General Grant recommended tbis course
to Andrew Johnson. Has life grown any
more secure there? We know that every
trastwortbv witness wbo gets audience of
the President brings him evidence that
tbe same anerob? prevails. Does the
great Captain eat his own ordt? Are
there any influence in tbe White House
that blind the eyes which saw so clearly
while in the camp? We have sometimes
wished ibat sow piper-headed and keen
sighted adviser cootd approach, the Pres
ident. But, after reading tbis, we know
no one who could put tbe duty in a elearer
light than the 1 resident himself has
piaayj it two years ago.

We were told that it we made a soldier
President we should have a strong gov
ernment, fall of decision ; one that could
not ke bullied. If or all we have seen in
four months, we might as well have bad
in the White House clumsy James of
England, who always fainted at the sight
of' a sword. Gloomy prophets feared
that nnder Grant we should have a coop

of tbe Government, Thus far it seems

The Memphis Lcdosr of Wednesday,
and Appeal of Thursday, soegested tbe
nam ot W. w. uates as a suuaoie can
didate for tbe office of Stale Superin
tendent of Publio Instruction. Our
Senior is now absent, in Louisville. As
the office was created by tbe Radical
Legislature for no eiper purpose loan
that of bestowing patroness on favorites,
at tbe expense oi an wiinoi,! ifie least
benefit to the people, W. W. Gates is not
the man to offer for the sine-cur posi
tion. He would much prefer to see the
office abolished, than enjoy its emolu
ments.
We know our generous-hearted eon-
freret of the Lipoeb and Appeal were
prompted by tbe parent motives in sug
gesting the name of tbeir old friend, who
has Ions been in the service of his party,
and stands sorely in need of same fat
office. But in the present case the ofEce
is too palpably useless and annecessary
to be even aonght or desired by a true
Conservative.

FROM BTJDD'S CHEEK.
What Conductor Lowe aaya abant tb
lata Hlebap Improved Con
dition i tb Wounded.
From the Conrier-Jonrnal, 31ft nit.
Captain Matt Lowe, wbo was in charge
as condnctor of the ill-fated train that
broke through the bridge and trestle at
Badd's creek, be;ond Qlarksyille, Tenn.,
last inesday morning, waa in tbis city
yesterday. He states that the train did
not rnn at more tban tbe ordinary rate ot
speed oyer any part of the road on the
disastrous trip. If the pontrary had
been tbe case he, above all others, would
have been aware of it, for he was tra
versing the train during tbe greater part
of tbe night, and particularly about and
at tbe time of the accident. On leaving
the elation nearest Clarksville tbe train
was behind the s&bedu!a bat ttro minutes,
and tbe slight difference rendered any
extra speed unnecessary. Tbe rate being
made was filtren miles per boor.
Eugene Riley, tbe martyred engineer,
was scrupulously circumspect with his
locomotive, always complying with the
rules by which the engine-drivers are
governed, especially as to slow running
over bridges and trestles. In far
ther proof of tbis, Captain Lowe says
be distinctly felt tbe train check np from
the reduced pressure of steam a the en
gine approached tbe (troctore over
Badd s creek. He is satisfied that tbe
disaster va not tbe result of undue ve
loeity, nor of any kind of neglect on tbe
part of the engineer. Since the accident
the track and superstructure at the creek
have been minutely examined, but no ev
idences thjt the train jumped tbe rails
were detected, t he culy correal infer
ence is that the timbers of the bridge
were defective. Even upon tbis theory
the accident appears singular, for the de
molished bridge bad been inspected by
tbe proper officer bnt a few weeks prior
to the disaster, tad pronounced entirely
sec a re. Captain Lowe report that tbe
wonnded passengers at Clarksville-are
still improving, and will be able to pro
ceed to their Lome in few days.
We are clad to know that Mrs. Hush
McCall, whose injuries were supposed to
be fatal, was much better yesterday and
is likely to recoyer Sbp is the recipient
of unwearied attentions from her physi
cians and the good Sisters of St-Joseph's
Infirmary. As far as tie cao learn tbe
other unfortunate now vjntjer treatment
in tbe city are past all danger.
It is probable that tbe fallen bridge and
trestle will be replaced to-day, allowing
trains to resume their trips.
Mrs. McCall died yesterday. J

The Augusta Constitutionalist of
TueBdny, Buys: r ','' --
Uumori were current on our street
yesterday that a justly incensed brother
had avesgd the wrongs of sister in tb
slaying ot tbe man who, bad betrayed
ber confidence. As tbe circumstance
comes to us, tbe family of the young
lady concerned ranks among tbe most
respectable of Edgefield county. ; The
designing and successful villain who has
wrought her ruin. is : represented to hsve
been a young man wbo lormerly lived in
Augusta, J. JJ. tress well., . We are ad.
vised that tbis young man conduoted
farm in the neighborhood of tbe family
to wbicb allusion nas been made,
and that he had been welcomed into
tbe most intimate association with
the father, brother and daugbtere. Every
facility in tbeiapower bad been cheerfully
afforded to contribute to bis material
interests, and to promote bis social en
joyment. He bad been treated rather a
member of tbe family tban as an ac
auaintanct, and such had been hit seem
ing honest and honorable deportment that
no breath of suspicion was stirred against
him obtil his baseneesand perbdy oulmi
nated in the ruin of a daughter of the
household. Stung to desperation, the
brothers, who had been thus deoeived by
one wbo had . worn the semblance of
honor and outraged tbe confidence re
posed in him, waited on the author of
the rnin of a too confiding but loved sis
ter, and demanded a reparation of the
wrong at tbe marriage altar. Ibis took
place at night in the early part of last
week. Uressweii, as we are informed, ac
ceded to the demand,- and mounted his
horse to accompany tbe young men, to
have' the ceremony of marriage per
formed.
On the road, however, his villainy
again asserted its supremacy, and being
mounted on a swift-footed torse be gave
tbem tbe sup at a favorably locality, and
made bis escape, although tbey dis
charged their pistols at him as he fled.
Since then these young men and their
sympathising mends bave been in active
searcb tor tbe young ma wbo nas so
grievously wrongef them, and it was
reported here yesterday that one of the
brothers bad traced bim to citation ao, on
the Greenville and Columbia railroad,
where he overtook him on Saturday
night, and shot and killed him. If such
is tbe fact it is only a just retribution.
and a fate which all snob men ihould be
taught to expect.

giving Bob the lead by three and a half
lengths. Recovering bis course, Sully
made splendid headway, gaining rapidly
on the Hart outfit. One of his geese,
however, attempting to dive, kicked a
rear goose in the eye. The kicked bird
at once cackled bis defiance, and soon
demoralised the entire team to such an
extent that victory was impossible. -
Hart would have come in U. K. only
for his " wheel geese " baulking badly and
upsetting tbe tub. Sully began leaguing
at his opponent's disaster, when his team
made a sadden flank movement, which

General Ceapedea on lb Appoint
ment of General Thomas Jordan.
From Sabanillade Silancia, at data of
June II, General Cespedes has promul
gated an order assigning uenerai Jordan
to high command in tbe Cuban army. He
says, addressing his countrymen: -
The organization of tbe army in the
different States, into which the Republic
s divided, has been and is constantly tbe
chief object of tbe action of the Govern
ment; because without organization it is
not possible to bave a good army, and
without a good arniy tbe success of the
aperation cannot . be always such as
may be desired, notwithstanding . the
valor of the chiefs and the soldiers who
compose it. To carry oqt this beneficent
idea, and Crat Laving had the approba
tion of this Government, the General-in-Chief
has named Gen. Thomas Jordan,
Chief of the operations in this State. Ia
doing so, be has taken into account the
fact that the officer appointed is a man
of valor, of knowledge, and of military
skill. These qualities were demonstrated
at the arrival of said "Chief to these
shores, and likewise in the deeds which
he has exemplified witb fighting our ene
my on our own soil. Let it be further
added that personal qualities adorn this
gentleman and render him worthy of re
spect and of esteem Hence, 1 bope that
you, as true patriots, who have proved
a thousand times your adhesion to tbe
cause, will consider the acquisition of

for tbe revolution, and that we all shall
give proofs of the facts that we know how
to do honor to men of ability wbo come
to combat at our side for the independ
