A. M. HUllNKY, YMor. (Jen. Cheatham lias published his vindication, wnicli is demonstrative. Keifer, Kt-publicnu ot Ohio, wns elected Speaker of the House, last Mon day, the Virginia Koatljusters and some (Jreen backers voting with the Repub lioans. Tlie 5U-4 was defeated by a majority ot 30,000. The Wilson platform was defeated by a majority of 123,000, If the 50-4 be "dead," as. the friends of the latter claim, where shall the W ilson platform appear ? The lianner says the present Legisla ture is composed of 26 Democrats. 27 Wilson Democrats, -1G Republicans and one Green backer. The Democrats have a majority of both Mouses and six majority on joint ballot. The Lebanon Herald, speaking of Jev. John li. McFerrin, says : "If there is any sense of justice and the fitness of thintrs in llmnpvt. won. end conference, John U. McFerriu will die a Bishop." Why, do they propose to immolate a Jiishnp at their next mooting ? President Arthur's Message. President Arthur's first message is lengthy and prosy, yet a very boldly pronounced paper. IIo indicates a vigorous foreign policy nnd a sound, national spirit at home. If he per- 1'irms as well as he promises,' his ad ministration will be an improvement over all his Republican predecessors, who 1 lave lost cast abroad in their nar row-minded, partizan zeal at home. We hope to be able to give the entire message next week. The 100 3" in Court. The Supreme Court met in Naili villu Monday, all the Justices lieing present. A petition was presented bv the Funding Board a.-king that the 100-3 case he advanced on the docket so as to be decided immediately. The Court set Monday next for hearing the case on the advancement nnd will al low one hour and a half to each sido for argument. This indicates that we will very soon know whether it is to be decided now, or await its course for years to come. The Fire in the Penitentiary. At 3:30 p. m. last Monday, the ma chine ami work shops of the peniten tiary at Nashville took fire and were totally coMumed, together with the three walls that inclosed them, leaving nothing standing except the cells. The origin of the fire is a mystery. The prisoners were in perfect confusion and dread of a fiery death until a guard was formed nnd armed of the citizens, who had assembled at the alarm. A hollow square was formed, the gates opened and the convicts marched into it, and thus prevented from escape. Many of them worked heroically to save the furniture from the flames. There were 728 prisoners within the walls, and when the roll was called after the fire 721 answered to their names ; the others could not bo ac counted for at the time, while it is thought a few made good their escape. The loss of the lessees, Cherry, O'Connor it Co., is estimated nt 8250, 000, and it will cost the State 840,000 to rebuild sons to confine the convicts in safe walls. Temporary walls will be built immediately so as to enable the lessees to put in new machinery, and the convicts in the meantime will likely be kept in their cells and enjoy a sabbath of many days in succession.

The trietnrf on Higher Letwnns in Eng lish In the Btaximrd of imt wetls, ca hardly add untythinK to Mr. (Vs reputation mnifiMruiHliiiijmrti.il literary critic. The objections are nearly all of a trivinl charac ter, eveu If there were the slightest plausi. bility hi any of them. In lug earnest kcu roll for "defects and errors," he loses sight of the distinctive features of the work which hnve. given it a popularity never acquired in so short a time hy any other textbook on the same subject. The excellent system of analysis, the uiieqiuled method of digram, minx (teiiteiiees, the KysteniMtic exerciMei in constructive, or synthetic grammar, and other important and uttruetive characterist ics so highly eonniHiided by the best schol arship of the United Slates, are all unnotic !, mi while the writer lavs before bis readers array of hnt he conceives to be "errors ' gathered here and there in his superficial examination of the work. The numerous 'defects" said to exist are not specified, but if iiiey are as imaginary M the "errors" nuiiitd, the book is certainly as nearly per fect us it is possible for any human work to he. Perhaps Mr. C. w ould have us under stand these two terms as exact equivalents in meuuing. if So, why use both ? Objection N'o. 1 is so manifestly pointless that it carries its own refutation. The omis sion of the periods on die cover is' purely a liter ot typography, and is the common i!cti::c ot the hest publishers in England 111. d America. See for example last revised edition of McCufley's Headers, published by Yiiu Antwerp, Hragg fe Co. The clause quoted from fourth page of preface, which without sufficient authority he culls a send nee, is objected to on account of its ending with the preposition "in." In reply to tliii (,.j.:i tion Mr. C. is reminded that deviations from the rhetorical principle he cites, arc by no me. ins unusual among the best writers an 1 spe i!;,.;s. To close a sen tence with n preposition or other short word i.i, in many eaoc, not tiJy Utt but ul-so-iulcly unavoidable. Lord Eacon says: "Houses are made to live in, not to look on." Donne, a celebrated English divine, says, "Hath God a name to swear by ? Hath God a name to curse by?" Pinnco's Anulyical Grammar, page 111, contains this sentence : "The subject is that which is chiefly spoken of." Is uot "of " about as "insignificant" us "in"? He objects also to the definitions of sub ject and predicate as given by Reed und Kellogg. To exclude from a definition all that Mr. C. says should be excluded, will leave nothing to be suid of sub iert Hod predicate eicept that they are words in the seutence. A definition of either of their e that does not give its otlice in the seutence is utterly worthless. For similar forms of definition see Pi unco's Grammar, page 49 : "What is a Itelntive Pronoun?" Answer, "A Hciative Pronoun relates" etc. Page 108 exhibits the following: "What is Syn tax?" Answer, "Syntax treats of the rela tion of word," etc. Mr. C. never saw a grammar that did not contain many such definitions. For an erroneous definition of the subject of a sentcuce he is referred to the one above quoted, which is given by Pinnco and other authors. The subject is not the thing spoken of, but its name. In this sentence, 'The sun shines," the sub ject is not the sun itself any more than a picture of a man is the man himself. Mr. C. will pardon us for inquiring just here by what authority he uses the pronoun "they" in reference to the word "author" in the seutence beginning, "When an author." etc. Objection No. 4 is answered bv the remark on page 41, in which the authors mention several eases requiring the use of the comma when no conjunction is omitted. Ry the way, is not "Thoniosou's Seasons" a aeculiar authority 011 this subject? In objection No. 5 he guvs the authors err in omitting the article "a" before "suhiect" in the sentence on the 90th page beginning, "If the interrogative word is subject." etc. The omission of the article indicates the prominence of the subject over the subordi nate elements of the sentence, and is there fore legitimate and uroiier. It is iust ns one would say, Mr. C. is principal of the school and not a principal. To have used the arti cle would have reduced the subject to the same footing with its modifiers. Objection is next urged to this sentence on page U3: "Now, then, go you to break fast." Here Mr. C. errs in tnkiim "now" o and "then" in their ordinary sense as nd- veros nl time. "Now" thus used consul- ered by Webster as a conjunction, wl.il.. "then" bin the force of "therefore." Web ster aud Worcester both quote and approve this sentence from Prvdcn : "Now. then be all thy weighty cares awav." With as much propriety Mr. C. would object to this sentence: "The wind still blows." Hp would say that if it is still, it does not Wow: nnd if it blows it cannot be still. Thew would he just as much point in theobjection. ino. is easily disposed of. as the Minium- ry of the rules of syntax has long since been inserted. His last objection relates to the manner 111 which the authors dispose of the sub junctive mode. The forms, "If I be," "If thou be," etc., are given ns distinctive forms of tjie present subjunctive by nearly all the sianiiaru works on hiiglioh Grammar. Con sult Harvey, Rrown, Qiiuckeiibos, Bingham, millions, and also Worcester's paradigms. Reed nnd Kellogg use these forms to express a pure contingency, or a mere supposition without regard to fact. Thev would snv. "It he comes, I will see him," because the coming is expected and is considered ns u fact to be decided in the future. Thev J would say, "If the weather be fine to-mor row, we will go," because expeclatiiwi is ex cluded and a pure contingency is expressed. They also suggest thnt this form be treated ns potential by supplying the auxiliary. Thus we should have, "1 f the weather should be tine to-morrow," etc., which is certainly more accurate nnd e:.act than the form pre feired by Mr. C. A supposition or wish con trary to fact and relating to present time they express by the imperfect subjiinciive, a form which lr. Bullions snvs can nnvcrlm dispensed with. The form "If 1 wire," can in 110 sense be treated as indicative. In setting aside the subjunctive, therefore, our authors have gone as far nsitis pt ssilile to go, practically leaving only one tense, the imperfect, ami just here they are met bv the genius ot the language, which says, ''Thus fur shall thou go, and no farther."

A Catechetical Review. 1. Prof. Janes will briefly explain chro nology of history. Answer by P. G. Cummings : Clno nology is arranging events with their dates in the order of succession. For this purpose some standard was neces sary for measuring the intervening time between two events. A day was too short, the periods between two moons too variable, as it caused a dis crepency ranging from 354 to 387 days in a year. Then the Gregorian calen dar was adopted. Formerly different nations reckoned from different events. as the Romans from the foundation of Rome, etc. About the middle of the sixth century Dioriysius Exiiruus intro duced the birth of Christ ns the key of we arch 111 dates, as, for instance, the Lxodus of Israel was B. C. 1491 and the discovery of America was A. D 1492. Irof. Head will give the divisions of history, 1st, as to time; 2d, as to subjects. 3. Trof. 1, P. Evans will rise and cxpluin the most convenient periods into which l.mli ancient and modern history may be divided. 4. Trof. Paschal will name thirteen of the most noted persons of ancient history aud ine caose ot their notoriety. 5. Rev. C. R. Pa vis will tell us why, and wnen llenry Mil. of England, was called "the Helenderof theFuith?" Answered by C. B. Davis : In 1517 Henry wrote a book against the Lu therau doctrines and iu defence of the seven sacraments of the Church of Rome, for which Clement VII. gave him the high title of "Defender of the Faith." 6. II. L. Walling will state in what year A. D. the crucifixion occurrad? and in what year of the life of Christ? and is this A. D 1S81? Answered by II. L. Walling. The uirui 01 unnst occurred tour vears earlier than is fixed by the Anno Dom ini date; therefore, it must have oc curred in the year of the world 4000 instead of 4004, as tho chronology of usstier and others make it. According to the A. I), the crucifixion occurred in the year 30, but in the life of Christ it was iu tho 34th year. This is 1881 A. I)., but I880 from the birth of Christ according to the common reck oning. 7. Col. H. L. W. Hill will please tell when slavery was abnliMie,! by the British govern ment? how? and for what purpose? . As a question has been propounded to me through the Standakp, allow me to pro pound to your learned correspondents in nisiory me louowing question : Who was the first Pope? When was he made Pope? Ry whom, and how long did be hold his high position? C.B.Davis. Inferred to Rev. A. E. Grover. C. C. Pell when, how, and by whom the word 1 rote.tnnt" was introduced into church history n tliminct mime for a branch of the church. C. B. Davis. Referred to Rev. W. W. Pinson. C. C. .9. Mr. J. R, Oliver, tell us what two great events stand almost equally distant, one be fore and the other after the Christian era. J. R. Olliver: Moses led the child ren of Israel out of Egypt 1491 years B. C. Christopher Columbus d scov ered America A. D. 1492. These are two great events which stand almost equally distant, one before and the other after the birth of Christ. 10. J. F. Martin, of Morrison, and J. L. Thuxton will please state when merchants were first named in history. 11. The teacher or school at Viola will please state when money was first used, by whom, and of what made. Answer by G. F. Cummings: Money was first mentioned Genesis xiii. 2. Greece and Rome once used cattle sb money. Tho Byzantines and others used iron money. 12. Some one at Pine Bluff or Rock Is land will please state when and where the first railroad was built. When and where the fust in the United States. Answer by G. F. Cummings : The first railroad for passengers was built ill England 1825 by Edward Pease and Geo Stephenson, and called Stockton nnd Darlington road. The first in the United States was built by Gridley Briant and Col. T. II. Perkins in 182(5 nnp known as tho Quiney railroad, used for carrviner srranite from the t t ca o quarries to Quincy. 13. The Irviiiir cadets will state the first mention of France in history and its changes of government to the present, Nos. 1. 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11, and 12 are now, according to the rule, open for the class to answer. These questions have been arranged by the Central Committee, and if not answered so as to be published in two weeks will be repeated to the entire class. The answers will be published substantially as given. An Aequsitioti. Since its virtues have been utilized by Dr. Tnbler as a permanent cure for I lies, the JJuckeye. now so abundant i our native forests, has become of almos in ns much importance in the medical world as Cinchona, or Peruvian bark, of South America. Fortunately the medical properties are in the fruit, and not the bark ; hence the trees will not be destroyed, but will stand many years to yield an abundant supply, and we may regard Tabler's Buckeye Pile Ointment as a permanent remedy.
