A Vicksburger, a citizen of
Wurren county, is in Washington,
the Representative of this, the
Third Congressional District. He
is a member of the Rivers aud
Harbors Committee, the Commit
tee, of the first importance to all
tho Mississippi Vutlcy. He has
the friendship and steady co-operation
of tho ablest Democrats in
Washington, the respect of Influ
ential Republicans, nnd he is a
trained end competent legislator.
There Is nn opposition to him
in his own party in any of the
Valley counties, but there is a pur
pose to humiliate him in the city
in which lie resides, because of an
appointment ho endorsed. There
is no claim Bet tip that tho official
appointed is not a life-long Demo
crat, that ha is dishonest, or that
ho is incompetent. The only claim
set up, is that pome one of the
other applicants, was not endors

If we can retain this District, it is
very desirable for the Representa
ti vo to live in this city. The rea
sons for this nre so manifest and
important, they need not be

to any loyal Democrat, whose
name has been suggested iu oppo-

bo admitted theio is not a DeniO'

ney General, and lie assures us
most positively he is for Mr.

sibility, the fight on ditchings in
this county should succeed, it
would only result iu Vieksbnrg

the Democrats in tho county, the
revengeful, factional fight on him

it 1ms not ceased, for it is suggest
ed so persistently that it might be
better to surrender the District
to the Republicans ngain, that it
is npparcnt, that some are 60

fer to see a Republican elected.
Under the circumstances, it is
the plain duty of every loyal Dem
ocrat in the city and county to at
tend the Ward and District meet

Vicksburg, Juno 27. Lust night
about 10 o'clock a tragedy occur
red nt a store kept by n man named
L. Binder in Eaglo Bend, about
forty miles above here, on Mr,
Richard Peelers' plantation. The
particulars, so far as ascertained,
nre us follows :
Tho usual Saturday evening
gathering lhatocctirrsut the couu
try stores in that section, where
more or less drinking ia done by
both whito nnd colored, wns about
nt nn end, nnd Binder, wishing to
close up for the night, requested
the parties to leave. In the crowd
were two white men named Henry
aud Alfred Morgan, one of whom
being in liquor refused to allow
the colored porter of the store,
M. Brown, to closo it, nnd after
somo words passing between them
Binder told Brown to closo up and
if anything happened he would bo
responsible and protect him, upon
which Brown retired to another
part of the store, nnd when he np
penred ngnin he was armed with a
double-barreled shotgun loaded
with buckshot, nnd without fur
ther ado emptied one bnrrel into
tho body of Alfred Morgan, who
fell dead iu tho store door.
When Henry saw his brother
full he immediately started to run,
but" before ho reached the' front
gate Brown brought him down
with the contents ot the other
barrel, killing him instantly. Dur
ing the shooting he also wounded
a negro named Cornelius Jackson
in one arm and the Bide.

seeo light. It is quite apropos of
the Wheeler controversy iu the
House. Briefly it is tLls: At a
diuntr given to Barou Geroldt,
then German Minister, the couver
sation drifted intoaehanuel rather
cmbarrafsing to Charles Sumner
and Mr. Bout well. The early his
tory of Massachusetts was highly
extolled. It was only short time
before Sumner's death, but he wus
iu one of his most cheerful moods.
Possibly, by their silence as well
as by their countenances, the two
Massachusetts statesmen showed
their satisfaction nt tho tluttery
6howered upon their Common
wealth. Mr. Joseph Kennedy, an
intimate friend of both men, out of
a pure spirit of banter, took the
opposite side of the controversy.
He declared boldly that the early
history of Massachusetts was liiled
with disgraceful ephodes. Mr.
Kennedy cited the way iu which
the carpet-baggers from New York
overran it during Gov. Edmund
Andros's administration, and cap
ped the climax by quoting from
memory Nathaniel Byfield's words
regarding that dignitary: He
c lino from New York to the colony
of Miissachusitts, nnd brought
some bud men with him. He wns
finally arrested by tho outraged
people of tho colony, nnd nearly
escaped In female clothes, but thut
his cavalry boots showed him off.''
Tho scene that followed Mr. Ken
nedy's remarks was memorable.
Mr. Sumner believed himself thor
oughly informed on New England
history, nnd did not recall any
such episode. Meanwhile tho
laugii had neon started Py soma
Southern guests who were pres
ent. They began to rail Sumner
ubout tho way in which Mussnchu
setts had resented tho intrusion
of carpet-baggers, nnd ono gentle
man went so far ns to declare that
some Massachusetts man who
knew about Andros's escapade
had started the scandalous fiction
about Jefferson Davis being
caught in women's npparel.
Mr. Sumner never lost his good
humor for mi instant, "Look here
Kennedy," he said, "you have no
evidence for that statement nbout
Audros. I mean about the female
disguise. IIo was a pretty tongl
man, but ho wouldn't have put on
a petticoat. Come now, own up
"If I don't convince yon, Mr. Sum
ner, nnd everybody hero within
twenty minutes thut I have tho
best authority for my statement,
wiil stand a dinner for the party,"
replied Mr. Joseph Kennedy, the
thoroughly on his mettle. The
matter had gone too fur to
laughed down, though nobody
was in bad humor. It was a test
of memory between Kennedy nnd
Humncr. The feast was suspend
ed. Mr. Kennedy went to his
curriiige, drove rapidly to his
home, and from his library carried
back the account of the late revo
lution In New Knglnud, written by
Mr. Nathuuii I I, field and publish
ed iu !(!). There the chapter nnd
paragraph were quickly found
Mr. Sumner was satinucd. But
from that (lay to his death he ul
wnys avoided the carpetbagger
issue. Ho became a great deal
more sympathetic toward the
Southern people. If tho pcoplo of
Massachusetts couldn't stand tho
animal why should the people of
the South? After hunting
these old pamphlets and verifying
all the references, the most
mnrknblc and curious feature of
this incident Is Hint during tho
twenty years in which this great
Southern qnrstion has been
holly discussed no Democratic
member has sprung this ghastly
record ngainst tho living descend
ants of tho sturdy colonists who
revolted under the arbitrary rule
of the Carpet-Bagger Edmund Andres.
are among the most cautious fight
ers on earth, and also among the
most desperate. Near the close
of last year a baud of Chitichuas
numbering eleven, killed twenty
one friendly Apaches living on the
reservation, and twenty five white
men, women and children.
Their superiors ns prowlers in
war piobably never existed. The
army officers iu Aritotia declare
that the Apaches nre the ideal
scouts of the whole world, with
their hawk eyes, stealthy motion
and sensitive ears. Though under
sized, they have broad, deep
chests, muscular limbs und small,!
wiry hands and feet.
They march about four miles an
our, halting after a few hours'
tramp long enough to smoke cigar
ettes. If no matches are at hand
they tiring fire iu from eight to
forty-five seconds by rapidly
twirling between the palms a hard,
round stick fitted into a circular
holo in another stick of softer
fiber. They will march forty
miles a day on foot across dry
plains and precipitious mountains
regardless of the fiercest heat.
The Apache finds food where
the (ViicuH an would starve. He
can catch turkeys, quail, rabbits,
doves, field mice nnd prairiodogs;
feast off a dead houc; gather
acorns from the stunted mountain

David Van iS'ostrnnd,
known New York publisher and
importer of scientific books, died
June 14, iu the 75th year of his
nge. He was first employed in a
city bookstore when 15 years old,
nnd subsefpiciitly became acquain
ted with many military and scien
tific men, who gave him orders
for books, relying upon his good
judgment for their selection. He
thus, ns well ns from the natural
bent of his tastes, developed n
business especially in the line of
military nnd scientific books, his

Of the hundreds of residents of

Blender lady, with raven brown
eyes nnd hnir, and with a singular
Httruelvenessin her face that know
Hint she is Mrs. Rose llnrtwick
Thorpe, whose lainons poem, "Cur
few Must not King TcMlght,"has
given her a reputation iu both hem
isphores. How, at the age of six
teen yenrs, the yonng country girl
wns led to write the poem, now so
widely known, Is thus narrated, ns
furnished by her personally for
this publication : "The poem was
suggested to me by the reading of
a story, 'Love and Loyalty,' In
April, 1.H67. I was then a plain
country school girl, not yet seven
teen, residing with my parents nt
Litchfield, Mich., and under the
pretext of working out mathemat
ical problems, with my arithmetic
before me, I wrote the poem
roughly on my shite. I was forced
to carry on my literary work un
der these difficulties because of
tho opinion of my parents, that my
timo could he belter employed
than in 'idlo dreams and useless
rhymes.' I wroto tho first copy
on my slato between four nnd Bis
o'clock in the afternoon, but much
time has since been spent in cor
recting and revising it. I had no
thought that I would ever be able
to write anything worthy of public
notice. The poem wns first pub
lished iu the Detroit 'Commercial
Advertiser' m the full of 1370.
The editor, upon receipt of my
manuscript, nt once wrote me a
lengthy letter of congratulation
and praise, in which he predicted
the popularity for the verses which
they have since received. I had
no literary friends, not eveu a lit
erary acquaintance at that time,
nnd did not know tho simplest re
quirements for preparing my man
uscript for publication."
