tutter disappointment, and too late

promise to provide them with homes
and land in Kansas. Tha greater
number, however, were not in a po

THE STATE DEBT.
We have read a recent speech qf Hon.
John II. Savage, delivered at Smithville,
Teun., on the subject of the State finan
ces. Like everything emanating from
him, it is characterized by. boldness,
and uttered, no doubt, in sincerity.
Dissenting as we do from his leading
iut-a, we copy the following points which
he insists could be maintained before
the people, or an intelligent court:.
First That the bouJs had been issued
in violation of the constitution of the
Second That Ihey were issued in vio
lation of that legal and political maxim
that "tavatioa without representation is
Third That they ln-gan in fraud and
las.s h'i.slation and progressed in in
iquity, and that there are no bona fide
holders. . - - '.
Fourth That they created no personal
ohlig itions for ptiymeut upou any man,
woman or :hi)i in t!io State.
Fifth If it be admitted for the .hake
.f sr. -rumen l that the L'Hslature intend
ed to f-re:ite a l't-n in. -the nature of a
mortgage upon the then taxable proper
ly (land and negroes) of the State, it can
be tdiown from the highest legal author
ity that the obligation has been released
Sixth That all the acts under which
J he. bonds were issued commanded . that
the bonds shmld never be sold at a dis
count, but in point of " facts they have
been hawked, peddled, pawned and sold
in and out of the State for thiity years
to every petty hroU:r,that would huy or
loan money-49r them. So that it is now
perhaps true that there is not a single
bondholder vImxIocs not hold hi bond
in violation of the statute creating it. .
Seventh That whenever a statute
prohibits the doing of a thing, it is pun
ishable by indictment, fine and imprison
ment to viohije Vlho prohibition, hence
the bondholder of to-day is entitled to
punishment and not to payment.
Eighth That the humble citizens had
been promptly punished for every tri
vial offense, while the pompous bond
bolder has gone unpunished for flagrant
violations of the organic law without so
much as a reprimand or warning from

Joseph Jenkins Roberts was a ne
ro, a pat i ye of the United "States,
lie was born in Norfolk, Va., and
emigrated to Liberia from that State
in 123. Liberia declared its iude
jrendence and adopted a constitu
tion in 1847. He was the firt Pre)
ideut of 'Iiiberia, and be occupied
the oftice for four terms, from 1848
to 1856. In 1871. while Jas. Koye
was President, a popular uprising
took place,; the President was im
prisoned, and an executive commit'
iee, was entrusted, with the coveru-
raeiit untif May, 1871, when Mr. Rob
erts again was called to the" presi
dency. Since his retirement from
the office Mr. Roberta has .been,
we believe, a private citizen. Dur
ing his earlier residence in Liberia
he established a college, of which
for a time he was the president. . He
was a man of fiue 'personal appear
ance,' excellent address, good educa
tion, and high character.

. Prehistoric America must; have been
an exceedingly curious and interesting
country. Itg forests . were filled with
mastodons; megatheriums, aQd other
arecand lively beasts, any of. w Inch
ibought nothing of scratching himself
on the siiarp pipnaeles of, a convenient
Gothic church, and so toppling it over
on its scores of helpless pew-holders. In
the Mississippi valley, the industrious
mound-builders were constantly throw-!
ing up gigantic moleddlls, and planting
them with earthen pots and copper
hatchet?, in .the vain expectation ' that
the seed thus sown would yield enor
mous crops of kitchen-ware and carpen
ter's tools. ' la, Kentucky, the giant "to
whom the bones recently discovered in
,a Keutucky.caye are ...said,. ,to ... have be
longed, strode loftily . along theturn
pike, kicking the Indians and the mound
huildsrs contemptuously out of the wayi.
nd finally, iu Tennessee, a race of pyg
niies was continually holding political
meetings and resolving that mastodons,
moarid-builders and giants ; should - be
promptly abolished, and thai the size of
J;he inhabitants of this country should ,
be made and kept commensurate with
its commercial necessities. :
It is rather oild that the existence of
the Tennessee ' pygmies of. prehistoric
America was until recently never ; sus
pected. The name of the mastodon haa
long been familiar to' every person who
'n in the least degree addicted to fowslls.
His remains," in the nhape of of a plaster
of Paris skeleton , with, the artist's name
stamped in forehead,, are exhibited in
every respectable museum, and inspire
t!ie youth of America with bitter regret
that the animal so beantifully adapted
for experiments with: red-pepper , lozen
ges has gone where the small boy ceases
to trouble and the nomadic circus is at
rest. The mound-builders have been
the subject of scores of learned essays,
iu which their identity with the Aztecs,
the Chinese, the Egyptians, the Welsh,
and the lost tribes of Israel, has been
triumphantly shown; and of the exact'
height and probable capacity for whisky
of the Kentucky giants, we-' have had
careful and presumably accurate statis
tics. The discovery of the pygmies is,
however, so very recent, that no one has
as yet framed an3" theory whatever to
account for their origin, "and to explain
there complete extinction. ,'' J
When the Kentucky giauts were dis-
sKeieions 101 se'enty-nve mousand pyg-
mies of the average height of three feet
each. What are the three eight-foot
giants of Kentucky, in comparison with
; so great a cloud of pygmies? If we may
i judge from tne price usually paid hy
dwarfs, a three-foot dwarf is decidedly
more valuable than an eiarht-foot giant.
j and if the same standard governs the
! price of fossils, the seventy-live thousand
leunessee pygmies are worth fully
twenty-five thousand times as much as
the three Kentucky giants. While the
Ktntuekiatis can present their giants to
three .rminent scientific men, and ths
obtaih three distinct scientific reports
certifying to the enormous interest and
value of fossil giants, the Tennosseeans
can eupply every scienlilic man in this
country . and iu .Europe with a fo.isil
dwarf, and so secure testimonials with
out number to the unequaled excellence
of Tennessee P3rgmiu9.- Indeed, if the
discoverers of the pygmies will only
employ some astute piano-maker who is
an expert in testimonials, to obtain for
the fossil dwarfs the recognition of the
scientific world, there i not. a' living
