RAWUMS, fSUCCESSOR TO BAWLIM8 & SCUBfiELL,] COTTON FACTOR AND Commission Merchant No. 45 Union gt„ - » NEW ORLEANS, The San Francisco Assassination# The assassination of Charles DeYoung by a eon of the Mayor of San Francisco is an eyent de plorable not only on account of the nsefnl life that has been sac rificed in snch brutal fashion, but becaose of the fresh evidence therein presented that Califor nia, under the reign of the Com munists, is returning to the methods of barbarism which were characteristic of her earlier history. Kearney and Kearney ism have been the ourse of the Pacific coast*- From the day that this blatherskite began to preach his hellish gospel of dis order C alitor nia has had no peace. He taught the people of the slums that their will must be their only law; that might in their hands became right; that the rich who woald not surren der their riches were the legiti mate prey of the vagrant poor; that the shedding of blood was a venal sin iu sttoh a cause, and that the royal road to happiness lay not in raising men to the level of the high&t, bat in bring ing them down to the level of the lowest. Charles De Young was a man who by his own efforts had risen from a social condition not superior to Kearney's and become, through the journal which he conducted, a power in the oonntry. He valued his vast business interests the more be cause he had worked so hard to build them up. He knew that the property of other solid men of the State had been acquired like his. own. He realized that peace and property rights de pended upon guarantees that the existing social conditions should not be subjected to the shook of revolution. He was therefore foreuiost in fighting the revolu tionists. The devil must be fought with fire, and he let the devil, aa represented by Kearney and fellow-conspirator ^against the peace of society Kallocb, have it without mercy. Not careful as to his weapons, he showed the character of these men by their antecedents, and in showing K llocb, Kearney's can didate for Mayor, to be a scoun drel he went out of his way to say that his father was little Letter, Kalloch re torted by an attack upon De Young's mother, and then De Young took his pistol in hand and went outside of the la'w to avenge the insult. It was the act of a desperate man, and in excusable. But it was a crime committed in heat, under great provocation. Even this may not be said in palliation of the crime of young Kalloch. He has waited for months to get even with the maq who assailed his father, and the latter, menuwhile, has recov ered and is fully able to take care of himself. It is a cold blooded murder, and unless all respect tor law and regard for the sanctity of human life have fled from San Francisco, it will be punished accordingly. Mr. De Young was not a model man; he was a product of a semi-civil ized condition of society; but he had done some good in the world. He will be remembered as the founder and conductor of one of the greatest newspapers of the country, which, however erratic, was in troublous times a fearless champion of law and or 1er, and but for the fact that by resort to violence he invoked violence in the redress of a personal wrong he might be called a martyr in a good cause.—[Philadelphia, Pa., Times. Senator Garland, of Arkansas, is showing himself to be a states man as well as an honest man. In his State lately, a sentiment favoriDg repudiation has made its appearance. He has written a letter in which he depicts, in strong and eloquent terms, the wholesale ruin which repudiation will bring upon the mercantile and industrial interests oi the State. He warns the people of the State that if they wish for pros perity they must pav their obli gations. He denounces every proposition that has for its object anything than the payment of the State debt dollar for dollar. He deprecates |the repudiation sen timent which prevails in Louisi ana, Tennessee and Virginia, and says that the people of these States, by their dishonest course, will gain only temporary relief from taxation, and that eventu ally they will find themselves far worse off than if they had hon estly paid the obligations which they owed. If there were fewer demagogues and more men in publio life like Senator Oarland, the country would be muoh bet ter off.—[N. O. Times. A German of East Felician«, who loved whisky too well, died with the jim-jams the other day while lying in the woods of that parish. His name was Nicholas Weigle. The man who built him a house ont of bis poker winnings says that his residence was built on a "bluff." 'iSWING YO' PARDNER." Git yo' pardners, fust guatillion !

Place—Baptist Chapel, Satur day ".covenant meeting. Persons present,^the'church members be longing to the society—presided over by the pastor. An interest ing meeting followed as this was the last covenant with the.elder. Pastor—And now, brethren and sisters, as this is^the gjast covenant meeting I expect to be with you, you will^allow me to talk with greatjplainness. (Here followed some rather sharp re proof.) Brethren, willjyou keep up the Sunday 'morningfservices and the Wednesday evening prayer-meeting? I will take a vote on it. (Vote almost unani mous.) Now then, who will you appoint for leader? (Deacon F chosen.) Presently, with great delibera tion, rose the stately old.deacon. "I accept with reluctance the place assigned me; my health, as you know, is not good- I don't like to be out nights, but I will try to do my duty, and I hope the brethern and sisters will do theirs. But, brethern, be as sured of one thing, if when I do come and find only two or three of you heie I shall cease coming regularly." Pastor,'with reproof in his eye: "Have you, deacon, forgotten the promise of our Divine Mas ter, 'Where two or three are gath ered together in my name there I am in the midst to own and to bless.' " I thought, as I looked at the glowing aud egotisical counten ance of the zealous pastor and then at the discomfited deacon, "He has got your now, sure." But not so. The deacon came to his feet before the minister sat down, and eyeing him sharply, said: "Elder, those two or three spoken of by the Master I can find in my house, and thus the blessing may be secured without traveling through the mire." The minister kept his feet some time but not one word could he reply.—[Lapeer (O.) Clarion. Advertise, by the year, says an old, experienced business man.—It is cheaper, aod yields a better return in proportion to the money invested. An advertise ment should always be before the public in some shape! If it disappears it is soon forgotten and those that remain have the superiority and advantage of the competitor. There is only one excuse for the .discontinuation of an advertisement—that of re tiring from bu<nn<?i}S. What ''Gath" Has to Say of Tilden. [Cincinnati Euquiror.] N ew Y obk , April 24— To-day I saw Samuel J, Tilden on Wall Street. I can, therefore, give you an unqualified description of what he looks like! Iwas,stand ing on the corner of the street opposite the sub-treasury, when I saw the old man coming down from Broadway, and said to a friend of mine : "Hold on, and I will show you the greatest liv ing curiosity." While we were gathering our selves up so as to loose no fea ture of this "What is it," we saw other people who had also es pied him getting around in a fa vorable light to take the old man in. While we all had Jiad our mental glasses turned on him it pleased some loafer to stop Til den and communicate with him, probably iu order to tell the tale to bis children. We therefore observed that Mr. Tilden was re markably well dressed. He had on a dark-brown spring over coat, a high silk hat, cloth clothes,! and neat, polished shoes! He walked, as invariably, with his toes turned inward. The loafer aforesaid had hardly spo ken to Tilden when that small and slightlv-built worthy exer cised tne ruling passion of stick ing np his mouth in the loafer's ear aud telling him, with a great appearance of confidentiality, something. The loafer did not seem to be surprised or instruct ed. Tilden had a cheerful conute nance. The tint of his skin was clear-steel blue, as if his stomach was working right. His left eye lid was dropped on his cheek, as if that eye was out, but it did not appear to give him the least trouble. It looked as if he was in the habit of shutting one eye in order to get the best attaina ble sight with the other one. His left arm appeared to be sewed up iu the sleeve of his spring overcoat, because we could see no hand, nor any appearance of demonstratioa on tha» side. The coat-sleeve was knotted up, too, as if it was not expected to open for any arm. The old man's countenance while talking to the loafer was bright, but mysteri ous. He is expected to be in the mood for talk, and did all the talking. When he shook the loafer and came on down Wall street aud turned up Nassau, there were perhaps one hundred peisons taking him in! His toes were turned inward, and this gave him something of the stumbling gait which exaggerat ing people ascribe to paralysis. I can say that, excepting he was quite an old man, nothing what ever modified his appearance of idiosynocratic good health and self-esteem. He looked as if he could stand a presidential cam paign first-rate. Patrick Sullivan * and his wife who lived in West Feliciana par ish separated in 1879. One day last week Pat went to his Biddy, and begged her to live with him again. Biddy refused and Pat blew his brains out with a pistol right in the presenoe of his obsti nate spouse. The great dailies of New Or leans are clamorous for a sober and intelligent police force, in stead of the vicious, reckless, in salting ruffians that now wear the Orescent City uniform.
