Jeff Davis is said by the Ilcligiom
Ilcr'ald.ot ltichmond, to have re
cently mado the following address
at a Sunday school picnic: "My
friends there was a timo when I
could say follow citizens I congrat
ulate you upon tho demonstration
ot this day in behalf of Sabbath
schools. It is a groat and noble
work, that of giving moral and re
ligious training to tho rising gener
ation. To them wo must look for
the resurrection of tho.buricd hopes
of tho past. I am flattered by tho
compliment you havo paid me; but
I feci that it is not to paid mo so
much as an individual as represen
tative of tho cause of constitutional
iborty for which our Revolutionary
Fourfathcrs fought and bled, and
which is still dear to my heart. I
The sins of the self-styled
"Republican party" are not
only against the established
laws of civil government, but
directly against the established
law3 of God., It is time for
honest Republicans to gather
at the polls and silently and
quietly vote Mongrelism out of
existence, aud permit white
men to rule this country.
The House of Representa
tives on "Wednesday last resolv
ed that "WbiUemore, the South
Carolina cadetship seller, is un
worthy to hold a seat in that
body, and therefore refused to
admit him. There can be no
question as to the propriety of
this decision. It will be re
membered that he was expelled
rom the House about four
months airo for selling cadet-
ships, and went home and was
re-elected without opposition
iy negroes. The negroes who
re-elected the corrupt scamp
were guilty of a gross outrage
upon public decency, and the
House would have niado itseir
accessory to the offense had it
failed to rebuke their stupidity
and his impudence in again
claiming a seat. Honest men
of all parties must applaud the
action taken Wednesday week,
nit it is obviously incomplete
To be consistent and just to it
self, the House should now pro
ceed to oust other members
known to have been guilty of
the same crime. The proof
against one at least Butler, of
Tennessee was elear and con
clusive, we believe, and it is
difficult to see how he can be
ncrmitted to remain, while
Whittemore is excluded. If all
the rascals were to be expelled,
it is true, the Radicals would
probably lose their mnionty
and the House be left without
a quorum ; but so sweeping a
purgation can hardly be expec
ted. The case ot iiutier, how
ever, is exceptional, for the pro
ceedings against hint were
arrested almost at the moment
of pronouncing judgment. His
offense is known. It was the
same as that for which the
South Carolina corruptionist
has been punished, and he
should not be allowed to dis
grace the House by his pres
ence for another day.
Charles Dickens, the great
English novelist, died nt his
residence nt Uaddshill, Eng
land, on Tuesday week. Dick
ens was born at Landport,
Portsmouth, England, in 1812,
and was in the fifty-eighth year
of his age. The telegraph says
the suddenness of the blow in
tensities the ailliction of his
friends. There is unusual dein-
onstrations. of public grief in
London, and other cities.

If it will only

This thing called nicker voting
is telling upon the nigger party
in a manner little expected ;
and the best of the joke is,
Sumner, Phillips & Co. urge
their friends 'not to squirm un
der the effects of the New York
returns; the nigger vote will
yet be our salvation.' "We are
reminded of a story of our
friend, Solon Robinson, of the
Tribune. When a boy ou his
father's farm, he undertook to
train a bull pup for service.
To get him to 'fasten' his teeth
upon something, there being
no bull handy to practice upon,
Solon induced his respected
parent to get down upon all
ours and mutate the old lord
of the cow pasture. 'Growler'
made for the 'fond parient' with
bound, and took a 'holt on
the gable end of Robinson,
i i i-i
senior, wincn ten men could
not make 'let go.' The pater
nal roaring was fearful, but it
was of no avail. Solon was
delighted. 'Hold him, Grow
ler, boy 1 hold him ! Bear it,
feytlier, bear it I iHl be the
makin' uv th pup 1' It is quite
certain that this turn at the
ballot-box will be the 'makiu' '
of Sambo, making- him useless
and worthless, but from the
squirming, roaring, and contor
tions of the party ho has fas
tened upon, we are inclined to
think they will soon shake linn
off, spite of the advice of Phil
lips, Sumner & Co., who, think
ing that all the nigger needed
was 'freedom' and 'a vote' to
make a white man of him, cry
out, 'bear it, feytlier, bear it I

On the evening of the 16th,
near. Woodstock, Illinois, Mrs.
Peter Weitzel, in the absence
of her husband, while her son,
aged eighteen years, was sitting
at the table, eating his supper,
seized an ax and dealt him sev
eral blows on the head, break
ing in his skull and rendering
him iusensible. She then seiz
ed a razor, rushed upon her
little daughter, aged eightyears,
who was asleep on a lounge,
and cut her throat in a shocking
manner. The daughter man
aged to escape, reached a neigh
bor's and gave the alarm.
When the neighbors rushed in
Mrs. Weitzel was found in her
bedroom, with her windpipe
nearly severed. The recovery
of any of the three is doubtful.
