The design consisted of I an au. I carrying the little one in her Sarms, while a woman sat weeping t upon the ground. It was executed horribly. The tombstone was sent to the itor, with a simple retquest that it be epteed. As he was absent, the junio editor determined to aeknowl edge it, although he hadn't the slight *rnt idea what it meant. So next day he burst out in the paper with the fiollowing remarks: Art News.-We have received frmnt the hands of our eminent sculptor, a comic has-relief, designed for an ornamental fire-board. It reresented anL Irishman in his night shirt, running away with the little tod Cupid, while the Irishman's esw eart hides her lhatl indiffer ently va the corner. Every true work of art tells its own story; and we understatnd, as soon as we glance at this, that our riish friend has bton coquetted with by the fair one, and is pretending to tranafer his love to other quarters.

The Republican State convention, to nominate a candidate for Congress, State at large, met here to day. All 1 the counties in the State except four,. were represented. D. W. Munn pre sided, and Daniel She)pard was chosen secretary. General .1. . . Beveridge, of Cook, was nominated on the first formal ballot, by ai vote of 386 out of 491, and the nomination was after ward made unanimous. The resolutions are Is follows: hesolled, That the party which pre served the Union fironm dismlllbelr ment, abolished slavery and establish ed the civil and political equality of all men betfore the law, is entitled to the thanks of patroits, the contfidence I of the nation and the gratitude of mankind; and while the measures by which these noble results were right fullly accompnlished must be sacredly maintained, the time has comle whell the enmities engendered by the war i should yield to the friendships of peace. lResolred, That the continuance of the political disabilities iuposed for I participation in the rebellion longer than the safety of the relpublic re qires, not only tends to perpetuate Sfeelings of unkindness among the peo Sple, but is incompatible with that principle of political equality which lies at the basis of the Republican creed, and the members of the House of Representatives from this State de serve thank of the people for their i numnimous support of the bill for the general removal of political disabili ties, which passed that body at its re cent session by a vote ofthree-fourths of its meu bers. i:esolred, That ias it will be neessary and desirable to obtain from duties on imports a large portion of the revenue needed to defray the expenses of the goverunluirt, to pay interest on the ruitiowl debt adl the principal as it iulttures, seub duties shouldl be so ad-_ justed as not to prejudire but promote the interests of every section and branch of industry so &fr as may be possible. khesoired, That the large surplus re maniung in the national treasury after tlu, playment of all expenses of the government, including the interest on its publie debt, calls for a still further reduction of tin public burdens, and in effecting that reduction regard should be had to relief from that species of taxation which, while it adds lut slightly to the revenuell of the country, taxes heavily its lalmr and productive interests, and we heartly, aplprve the bills repealing the dutiy on1 coal and salt whir h have already passetl the House of Representatives. lieolrced, That we refer with pride and adnliration to the eminuently wise, patriotic, honest and economical ad ministration of President (rant, and we confidently commennd it to the ap prnbltion of the entire country. Resolred, That we congratulate the adminiitration of the general govern ment on the reduction of taxes and the pubic debt at the same time, which could only have been accomuldished by an honest and efficient collection and disbursement of the public revenue; and we indorse and aplprove the gen eral policy of the national administrna tion and of our State government in the conduct of public affairs, and that the Republican party, without any new departure, is equal to the correct ing of existing abuses, and the per fection of needed reforms, and its mis sion will not have ended until they are aecomtplished. Resolred, 'T'hat the recent exposures of frauds in the governiment of New i York city is unlparalleled in the his tory of civilized conmmunities, and Iprove that it is is unsafe to trust the )emocratic party with the practical administration of public aflairs as it would be to follow their political prin cipless, and the reent elections in Cali fornia and Maine show that the Anmerican people are generally of this opllinion. ST. PAI'L, Septemberl 20.-The Re publican State convention met at 12 M. to-day, and was the largest con vention of any political party ever be fore held in Minnesota, numbering 206 delegates. The first, second and third resoln tiras are as follows : lResoled, That the Republican par tv of Minnesota, while earnestly de string the prosperity of every section of our common country and the amplest development of commerce and manufactures, nevertheless regaurls agriculture as the paramoluit material interest of the nation, to which all other forms of industry should be held subordinate. Resolred, That an. essential of law is equality and universality, and that it is beyond the constitutional power of the general government to discrimi nate between the different classes of the people, to enrich those engaged in some pursuits by taxes levied on those engaged in other pursuits, thus making the same law a means of wealth for some, while it is an engine of oppression to others; that such a policy is as unlimited in its operations as human selfishness, and tends to absorb in the handsofthe few the sub stance of the many, and thus creates those great inqualities of wealth and poverty which threaten the very exis tence of our free institutions. esoelred, That while we prefer in direct taxation to be imlposed on im portations to direct taxation upon pro ducts of population under a system of internal revenue, justice and policy dictate that the burdens of the gov- I ernment should ft11 with the most weight on the vices and luxuries of society, and with the least force onathe wants of the multitude, and the gov ernunent should regard rather the prosperity of the great mass than the aggrandizement of those already weal thy. Resolr'ed, That we indorse the ad ministration of Governor Horace Anus tin. The fifth declares the ascendency of the Republican pnarty necessary to preserve the results of the great strung gle through which it has passed. The sixth resolution indorses the adminis tration of President Grant as practi cal, able and efficient. The seventh and eighth resolutions are as follows : Re.solhed, That the internal imnprove ment of lands owned by the State should be olened for imlnediate occu pation by ac.tual. settlers at a reason I able onmpensatlon ; that their sale be regulated by some system of appraise ment and credit similar to that pro vided by our school lands, and that neither the lands themselves nor the Sfunds derived froomn such sale should he disposled of by the Legislature for •any purpose until the law which pro vides for this disposal shall be sub mitted to a vote of the people, and to that end we recomnmend the adoption of a constitutianal amendment to that I eftict at the general election. Resol,'ed, 'l'hat the railroads of the country having been constructed to promlote the interestofeommerce, and deriving every power they possess di rect froml the people, are at all times, and under all circumnstances proper I subjects forjust legislation, tending to the promotion of the public welfare, . and thus we recognize and enunciate J the principle that in any conflict be tween tihe State and corporations translcting business within its limits, it becomes the duty of the State to protect its citizens by the exercise of every hlegitimate means within its command. The following ticket was nominated : Governor lonrae Austin; Lieutenant Governor, A. H. Yale of Winona, both by acclamation; Secretary of State, S. P. Jennison of Goodhue county, treasurer; W. M. Seager; Associate Justices, S. .. R. MlcMillen and J. M. Berry ; Attorney General, F. R. E. iCornell. Exploits of a North Carolina Outlaw. We copy this from the Whilmington (Delaware) Star, Sept. 7. W'e learn fronm oune who has lately been visiting different portions of i Robeson county, that Henry Berry ALowrey has recently been playing sonme practical jokes upon the soldiers and militia who are ill the field against him and his gang. It is said that the Iuited States troops have their camp near what is known as Pleasant Pros pect Church, and that about a mile from there resides an old woman who sells " tangle leg " whisky, who has been receiving frequent visitations from the "hboys in blue." eleport has it that on Wednesday last six of the soldiers were proceeding to execute one of their " strategi.c movements" alluded to, walking leisurely along the path, without unals, when a man suddenly sprang from the bushes, atred to to te teeth, and confronted them, startling them with the infor nnation that lie was the redoubtable Henry Berry Lowrey. He told them they were fools if they came to Robe s non county with the expectation of killing or capturing him, for it would never be done. He had lately received a message froim the Lord that he had twelve years to live yet, and further informed the astonished "men of Mars" that he had singled out some of their comrades upon whonm he in tended to wreak his vengeance. Be ing unarmed, the soldiers seized the first opportunity to make a backward movement in the direction of their camp, willing to forego the luxury of indulging in their favorite beverage rather than lrovoke the wrath of the daring outlaw. A few days after the above occur rence, our informant states that an officer of the militia received a mes sage front lFiwrey, stating that he had Svisited their camp the night before, and inspected their anurs, to see if they were in prolwr conditonm. As a proof of this assertion, he stated that he had left his " card," which would be found attached to one of their guns. Upon examining their weapons, the name of Henry Berry. Lowrey was found in scrilbed upon the breach of one of them, very much to the astonishment of ye gallant " melish." Saturday morning, the train from the West, over the Detriot and Mil wankee railroad, brought into Detroit what appeared to be a lady and gen tleman, both well dressed, stylish, and seeniingly mant and wife. They walked about arm in arm during the forty minutes before the Lake Shore train started, and they went on board that train without more than three persons being wiser for their brief visit. But for one little fact, the pair would have resumed their journey without a suspicion that the finely dressed lady was a young man, and Newbergen, Pa., burglar, who had been playing waiter girl, at Grand itapids, Mich., and that the seeming I husband was a Pennsylvania detect ive. Th~e wind blowing through the depot, ea'ight and lifted up a shawl thrown carelessly over the locked arms of the pair, and the depot police man caught sight of two arms linked together with a pair of hand cuffs. -Petroit Free press. ipe.ch of Senator Schurz. NASIHVILLE, September °20.-('arl Schurz made his promised speech at the capitol, to-day. An imhmense audience attended, representing all parties, and all sections of Tennessee. His arrival in the hall of Representa tives, was greeted with applause. Governor Neil S. hrown made at few remarks in introducing him. The speech of Mr. Schurz was of great length, liberal, candid and im partial, and was well received. He began by stating that notwith standing the captious remarks which had had been made relative to his I aeceptance of an invitation firom plrominent men who had been rebels, he was happy to meet all steadfast Union men, equally happy to stretch 1 out his hand to all men who had stood 1 against the.4 gover ulat dudang the war, but are now ready to work for the restoration of universal peace, 1 harmony, friendship and true brother hood, and thanked the unionists and confiederates, Republicans and Demo crats, natives and adopted citizens, whites and blacks, for the very friendly welcome extended to hiinm. He had I no sel4ish aspirations. His undience i had nothing to give him. He had I been allotted the highest political 1 position attainable to a foreign born 1 citizen under the constitution. He would utter the natural convictions of his mind without fear or impartiality. Proceeding to discuss the present con dition of public aftlirs, he said a gen- I eral amnesty should no longer be 1 postponed. It would tend to disarm i the feeling of alienation caused in the South by the results of the war. A I just, generous and conciliatory policy e should be alopted. It is necessary to I return without delay to sound prac tices of constitutional government. 1 Local self-government should be re- 1 stored to that freedom which belonged I to it. Great abuses had grown up in the civil service and must be corrected. t Our system of iimport duties needed a I change. Taxes must be reduced; a i return to specie payment imust be made ; corruption in high places I rebuked ; the influence of corporations t of tremendeus powersguarled against, t and donations of public lands stopped. These were, he said, problems to be t solved, and his views were shared by millions of liberal Republicans North. Some of themn were of special interest I to the South. lie impressed on the anudience the importance of the atti- I tude of the South in laboring for e reforms. So long as disorder pre railed, the North would not yield to its liberal and progressive ill pulses. He said the war was caused by the . antagonism between slavery and free I labor. Slavery brought on the strug gle and caused the defeat. It isolated the South froim the world. France and England dared not interfere I against free labor. ''The South should I profit by the result of the struggle. I Its cause was hopelessly lost, and can never be revived. Hie referred to the change of affairs in the South, and the necessity of a change of social and political organi zation, based on the principies ofi equality. The reconstruction acts of (ongress t were not the offsprings of hatred and r vindictiveness, but of stern necessity to protect those who stood by the IUnion, white anid llack, and to pre vent at re-action of further troubles. 'The Southern people would resort to all possible expedients; accept free I labor in its true form, and free lhbor nmust and would be maintained, f secured and developed, or the strug- 1 gle be fought over for those political 1 privileges by which freemen maintain a their rights. He asked if the South i had been llaced in tlhe position of the d North, would they have done less i u Mr. Schurz was emphatic in his i disapprobation of the policy of the 1 present admihistration, and in his c frequent expressions of apprehensions t of the result to our republican institu tions to allow its perpetuation in 1 pow'er, the only deliverance friom I which hie considered to be through f the co-operation of the sincere patriots of all parties in the political orgamiza- t tion which would insure the oblitera tion of sectional hitterness fron national politics. Such an organiza tion would command the confidenc, and secure party co-operation of his fmith, who would support it in prefer ence to thIe aduiniistntion party, but eduld not co.scientiously act with the i DIemocrtic party. Such a movement would receive the supl~art of thle entire Gernman element of the nation, i and thie true lpatriots of all parties, and result in a genuine restoration of i the Union. The remainder of the speech was devoted to the exposition of his views on other topics mentioned in the out set of his renairks. The Chief of Police of Indianapolis is trying to explain how he got thirty tive feet up the centre-pole of at men agerie in less than two seceonds, when a lioness e.scaped from her cage, and went to smellinng around for fresh meat. When -ai little black-aml-_tan pup harked at the lioness and sh., was frightened nack into her cage, the Chief of Police came down, and said he went up there for fun to decide a bet, not knowing the lioness was; out of her eage. Tex:s papers report that the United States army offier having thelm in his posession, has refused to deliver up to the State judicial authorities the two Indiau chiefs capttued by Sltrmanu, Stop It. We copy the following from the A ttakapar Register : We have watched with considerablu interest the progreas.ofthed uucational department of the State fgo-ernment, and have repeatedly oimnxended its acts, and are still ready and niltang to do so when they shall merit it. We are now compelled to censure, but hope that our censure may assist rather than impede its work. It began under griat difficulties; it is the result of a partisan fight, and the Repihlicaun party fathered it, and is now 'eromasilhe for its ounduct and success. It was ae~.r It i ntllention of the Republican party, however, to establish partizan schools. Superin tendent Conway has justly appointed school directors and officers' mn many instances without regard to party or race. He has called to his aid emir ent teachers, having in view no other consideration than their fittnues and appreciation of the work. By this conservative spirit, he has so liar destroyed the animosities whiek sew fronted hint, as to be able to extend the work of his department into par ishes where, otherwise, it would have been an impossibility to establish :a public school or send a Division Superintendent. The best citizens of all classes, by this means, becoming convinced that the department was not a political nachine, but an insti tution for the general public good, have given it their hearty co-opera tion. And ths is as it should be. We regret to observe since the late troubles in the Republican party, that such men as Hon. J. Henri Butch, of Baton Rouge, a member of the House, and a champion of the school bill, at the last session ; Hon. Anthony Over ton, of Ouachita; a member of the House conunittee on Public Educa tion, and lion. A. J. Sypher, of St. Mary, a State Senator who voted for the school bill-should be removed for no other reason than partianl reasons. To say iathing about the violation of the intent, spirit and let ler of the hlaw, under which these gen tlemen were appointed school direc tors, we would still protest against such arbitrary action on the part 4f' the State Board of Public Educationt. We Iold that when a school officer meets all the requirements of the law, he cannot be charged with negli gence or incompetency; aml is ia friend of education, that it would be quite as appropriate to remove hint for his opposite religious as well as political vlews to those held by his superior officers. In either case, it would be a violation of popular and and well conceived notions of Repub licanismn. Besides, either effort would seriously retard the school work, by creating a host of enemies where un necessity exists for them. It is a dis organizing influence, and we ask the press of the State to join us in this protest. Let it be understood that the depart ment of education is albove the broils and turmoils of political strife; and that it is devoted alone to the nobler and better duties pertaining to tlhe imparting of kuowltedge to the neg lected youth of the State. It will then become the common pride, and receive an muiversal support. -- -- .I-'. -1 1 . . The Contest In New Jelsey. The New York Tribune talks sense in the following article.
