WHAT Of TIIE NIGHT t
During the past seven years Ihu
Southern people have been scourged
with ills which have hardly had u
parellel in the history of any nation.
Their land has been swept with Are
and sword; their cities aud towns
have been pillaged or destroyed;
their fertile Aelds havo been laid
waste; their young men have been
laid to rest in soldiers graves; their
beautiful women have beeu outraged
and drven from homes of luxury to
toil aud distress; they have been
overburdened with taxes and oppress
ed with debt; they have been forced
to support military domination, and
scalawag rale; in short, they have
lived under such usurpations and such

dignity, to that which was inevitable.

the Arst sessions of Congress, had
made up the amount necessary to for,
ward their reconstruction and govern
ment on a " loyal basis" by " defi

to dupe the people. If a citizen re
fered to the enormous debt being
entailed upon the country, he was
told that the appropriations were every

of the atnouut made up in these " de

Says the Chicago Post:
Some little excitement lias been
created' by the fight, between the
Western Union and Pacific and At
lantic Tell
ipli Companies. The
following is a brief account of the
trouble: It appears that the latter
company procured permission of the
Indiana Central Railroad Company to
put a line of wires upon its poles, and
in accordance with the permit, put up
a line from this city to to Loirataspjrt,
In«J. ihe Western Union Telegraph
Company tore down fifteen miles of
tne wire .rnd left, it in the gutter,
claiming' that by a contract with the
railroad company thSy had the exclu
sive use of the poles. The Pacific
and Atlantic Company applied for 1
and obtained an injunction, in the
Supreme Court of this city, against
any further proceedings of this kind,
aud then proceeded to put up its wire.
The other company filed an answer,
and motioned that it bo dissolved,
aud then filed a cross bill to restrain
the I'aeifio and Atlantic Company
from putting up more wire. Both
petitions were yesterday denied. The
contract between the railroad com
pany and the Western Union Tele
graph Company gives the latter the
right to put up as many wires as they
choose on these poles, and it seems
that (hey cannot exclude other wires
until they have filled the poles.

It is not unreasonable to suppose that

facts, huuted the young man up, and

him home. Thp little^f'ellow started

neighbors, who inquired what was the
matter. The little fellow replied
that his father had whipped him be*
cause he wanted to marry.
"Why, my son," said the neigh
bor, "I would not care for that—
plenty of time in five years for you
to marry."
"Yes but I do," replied the little
fellow, blubbering, "I have got a
chance to marry a whito gal now, and
the way dad's going on, I'll have to
