Mrs. President Garfield was at last accounts from Yashington re ported seriously ill with typhoid fever.

We invito the especial atteotton of our readers to the article iu another column headed, " Willing to tcound, and yet lacking the courage to strike the blow," from the pen of one of the most gifted and experienced writers in the State, holding up to the scorn and contempt of all honest people the erstwhile Governor of Tennes see, A. S. Harks. The burly, brutal bravo who stabs Ms unsuspecting victim iu tha back is no itfrea crim inal than tha sabtle schemer from whose brain emanates the plot, and who exnects to reap the benefit of the bloody deed. And so, Savage, Iieasley, Suodgrass and other of the political bandits, who are open mouthed in their purpose to destroj their party aad wreck the prosperi ty of their State, should stand no higher on the roll of infamy than the Winchester plotter, who seeks to achieve hi greatness by his coun try's ruin."

To the Editor to the Horilutown Gazette : Either you have forgotten me, or there i8 something wrong with th. mails, as I ve only received one copy of the Gazette since I struck this God forgetting country, and that was dated April 6th. I am- not favorably situated, just now, to write you much information about Montana. I've discovered this much, however, without using a magnifying glass Montana is not what it is represented by the rose tinted railroad circulars scattered ver the country. lhe mining interests are yet un developed, to a great extent, and most of the quartz mining being done is mere prospecting. Of course, there are a few mines being worked, which are paying over expenses, but the' are precious scattering. Wages for working men range frome 830 to $60 per'month, with board ; every body furnishes his own bedding in Montana. There is some farming done in the vallejs ; wheat, oats, barley, potatoes, turnips and cabbage are raised, by irrigating the land ; but I don't think I would fancy farming in this country, where it snows every month in the year. Thoy tell me it is common to have snow storm here while har vesting wheat. There was ice here this mornning three quarters of an inch thick, this 1st day of May. I believe this to be a good cattle raising county, if stock men would provide hay to eai-ry the cattle through the severest storms of win ter, as the grazing Jand is extensive and is good, even now. My self and friend T. J, Cope are still together and we are at present cutting timber at $50 00 per month, near this place. We took the first job we met with, in order to be getting acquainted with the country and also be making something at the sauifi time, We have only been at work a few daya, and you bet we've got some sore hands. Women can do better here than limn, comparatively ; a good cook can get from S10 to $50 per month, and hired girls who work in families get from $25 to 10, and are in demand at that ; besides, there are so many mpj-e men here than women, that even aplaifi girl with red hair could marry almost any time. I can't conscientiously advise any one to come out here until I see further, but if any who. etp thjs in tend to come, I advise them to call on or write to W. P. Kerr, of Knoxville, before buying tickets; he is all right, and will put you through as cheap as it can be did, and overheat routes. "0Wj Uncle John, shoic up here after oa the Gazette.

LETTER I. : WHICH IS PREFATORY AND DI GRESSIVE'. Cain House, Mokiustowk, Teno., Miy 14, 1881. ' To the Editor of The Morristown Gtzntte : Mv Dear Helms : Long admir ing your sturdy paper, I have often thought I would be pleased to "illus trate" 1113- views through its gener ous columns. As you will observe from my chirography - even if I furnished you not my name I am a Knoxvillian of somewhat ancient date. By the way, like Byron, we may all become digressive, at times, without impairing the general tone of thought. Ditl 3 011 ever consider what "(Don Juan" would have been worth without the "digressions?" Well, all this is neither hero nor tbcre. If you will give me audience I will "talk a little," as our old friend, Ham Scott, was wont to say in the olden time. Knoxville, of course, is a " great place." It has been charged with claiming that it had smarter men and prettier women than any place n the world. To what extent these pretensions were just, I leave the " smart men" and " pretty women" of other localities to decide. ' But to get back to our mutton. Seated here, by a table in Tom Cain's excellent hotel the best in East Tennessee I am thinking of my, .our fitt entree into Knoxville. A mere "eu!k)W j-optJi," gtruUing alopg the " stage routes, one or the first men I encountered in that goodly town was the present editor of The Morristown Gazette, who was con ducting an institution, under the corner of the Lamar (then Coleman) House, for the bnyfit pf " Uncle Sam" on the one hand and the read ing public on the other. Do you re member, old ieilow ; Do you recol lect with what a suspicious curiosity you looked at me f WpH, Jplm, times have gone b It was npt to talk of personal matters that I took up my pencil. I ani here at Tom Cain's I almost forgot the fact in the idea that his hotel pught tp be at Knoxville. Do you realize the fact that Mor ristown "inland though she De lias a " prospect" that shoidd npt be despised r 1 lie world jnoves and we move with it. Destipy nxc results and, in spite of ourselves, we per force realize them. Let me say to you, my dear sir, as an honest. thoughtful friend that iu view of what must happen within the next two years, Morristown must become the piost important " upper town" in East 'iVnuccy. I must go up the road. My triun has just come. You shall hear froiii me again when I will' endeavor to further unfold my views, VpYAfiEU. A Washington correspondent in a a late Cincinnati Co;nmerci(tl puts ou record the following reinarka-ble verification of a singular prediction: Senator Jackson, of Tennessee, was reminded pMiy by friend who was at the University pf Virginia with him, of the curious verification of predictions made thirty 3-earsago and more.

SVasuington, D. C, Hay 14, 1881. To the Editor of The Morristown Gazette : When President Garfield entered so serenely on his four years course, but two months ago, no one foresaw the complicated situations of to-day, Even- one will remember how even political antagonists were disposed to congratulate each other on the beginning of a political, industrial, and financial millenium.- Bobertson had not then been mentioned, and the portentious Mahone was just appearing equivocally above the horizon. There is no equivocation in the attitude of Mahone now, nor, indeed, in the attitude of any of the distinguished personages who are playing in the petty politics of the day. Senator Mahonc's carriage may be seen, at almost any - hour in front of the south side of the gener al Post-office "Department, where he spends much of his time, closeted with Judge Tyner, farming out the little post offices in Virginia which, regardless of the wishes of the patrons of these ppst offices, both Bepublicans and Democrat, ha7o been given to him. It is his policy to place a Keaxljuster in ever post office in Virginia where the post master does not have to be approv ed 1- the Senate. This will make him dispenser of hundreds of offices, and enable him to play the despot in hundreds of localities that thp coun try at large has never heard of. It is needless to say that this is not right; that it is not according to correct civil service principles ; that it is not Republican or Democratic in principle, but what we are ac customed to call in Europe or Asia despotism and tyranny. I )npw pf more than one instance wiiere tne post master, notwithstanding his years of experience, his perfect rccprd wili the Department here, and in spite of protests signed by a large majority of the citizens, both Republicans and Democrats, has been ruthlessly removed to make place fpr incompetent and charac terless men, whpsp pnly recommen dation is that they hold Mahonc's peculiar views Avith regard to the Virginia State debt. To internal function's q'f- the Federal Uovem nicnt should not be f.'lt in this way in small,' weak, and' isolated com munities, whose protests cannot be sufficiently loud to rai?p that gen eral public indignation which can command redress. Neither Mr.. James nor the President Avould dare to appoint a post master against the protests of nine-tenths fifths good citizens pf St.' Lpuis or. HfV YVrjv. It is cowardly to force upon tiie AA'eak Avtiat they Avould not dare at tempt with thv ftjfi ' t i V.l) staicsmanlikp and uppntriolie to alienate small provincial communi ties, and to force them to feel the central gOA'crnment only ta a mis ehievjjus jnteriiipllli.;r vjth iityU local affairs, and as the i-h:'ji'ipipn of those whoin men of both' parlies hold in the least este The people pf a gm?,l yjllac hv? confi dential and intimate ivlf 'n-'Us 'i (li the post master',' they advise Avith him, and 'trust1 hini in all business matters beyond the limit of their aequaintaucp, and tp thflt vppn tiiem a stranger or y neighbor' in Avhose experience and integrity tluy haA C notconhdence, is such a mis chievous' and serious interference Avith their business intrst as AVpidd not bp attempted'pr tpfcrated in larger and more powerful com munities.

A certain pestiferous demagogue in this State, Avhose name is Albert S. Marks, is preparing ' to play again the disreputable role of two 3"ears ago. It Avas announced some days ago, by a leading. Tennessee journal, that Marks Avas laying his wires 10 . uecome "ine jiunoue 01 Tcnnesse." We took occasion then, to point out the moral and political impossiblity of "Mahoncism" becom ing even temporarily successful in this State, the conditions of public sentiment being notably unfaA'orable to the triumph of any such deviltry. But the success of one demagogue stimulates the hopes, and ambitions 1 0-t jotple. Gov. JIagood presided. of a dozen others, even in different Rev. .A. T. Porter oti'ered prayer. fields of action.

It needed not the stimulating example of Mahone to devlop A. S Marks into an arrant demagogue. After hisnomlnatipn fpr Gpve.rnor, inlSTS, by methods that Avcre pronouncctl j at the time, both disingenuous and disreputable, he canvassed the State, speaking to the people Avith a forked tongue. He had, then no political record by Avhich he could be ac curately measured, and, under the tressjOt party pressure and organi zation, lie Avas elected. The first signal act of his administration Avas the promulgation of a message, which, as a State paper, Avill re main upon thp rpeprds of our Coin monAve:lth to his everlasting dis grace. He Avas the first, aiurAve trust Avil ahvays be pointed to as last, Executive pf" Tennessee ppsspssed of sutlicicnt official unman liness to invite the creditors of the State to appeal to the Courts fir col lection of thoir dohts oifjiarties who had already p;iid them tb the State, Upon the terms and in the manner prescribed by the State herself. In order to holster up his outrageous message, he avhs mainly instru mental in the organization of the notorious "Smelling ' Committee.'" whose chief business cor: isted in the unwarranted defamation pf private v-Ii ci-tij-t pr, v an 'ex parte styr chambcii ' pi.peeed jhg. Failing in "this, 'he began to trim his little sails to catch another breeze.

When the last Legislature met. he had not su'flicientjy determined under Avhat llag to enlist ; so. under cover of a sinister It-ttpr. he inglor. iuiisly retired from the field, though not Avithpuf hope' that, as heretofore, intrigue might bring him to the front as a candidate tor Semdar, Jn thte h" Y,"a3 a.gatn doomed tb" hhmil- iatihg disajponitnVen't,' for it now appears that there Averc not a dozen men, of any shadoof opinion, AvU'jng to confide ag:;ji tp him a public trust.
