The telegraph brings the Infor
mation that Charles Dickens died of
paralysis Thursday eveniug at
twenty minutes past tlx at London,
England, which time would be
equivalent to twenty-Are minute
put eleven Thursday morning, of
Vickaburg time. Thlt will be tad
newt to thousand who have learned
to look forward with eager antici
pation for the results of the labor of
hit pen. Hie lota I no ordinary
one to the literary world, and be
will be sorely misted. He was last
engaged upon the Mystery of
Edwin Drood," but now he baa
gone where all that it mytteriout It
made clear and plain. We give a
sketch of this great author's career.
Charles Dickens, the son of Mr.
John Dickens, who held a position
in the Navy Pay department, was
born aa Landport, Portsmouth,
England, la 1812. At the close of
the war with the United States bit
father retired on a pension, and re
moved to London, where be be
came connected with one of the
dally journals as reporter of par
liamentary debates. Charles en
tered an attorney's office aa clerk,
but, finding his duties distasteful,
and drawn by a natural bias to
wards literary occupations, he
sought and obtained an engage
ment as a reporter on the staff of
the Morning Chronicle. This
newspaper was then at the height
of Its popularity, under the man
agement of Mr. John Black, who,
recognizing the readiness and abil
ity of the new attache, soon gave
him a chance to display hi versa
tility by publishing iu the Chroni
cle the "Sketches of English Life
and Character," which were col
lected and reprinted under the title
of "Sketches by Bos," in 1836 and
1837.
The freshness and humor of these
papers, and perhaps lhadrnmatlc
power indicated by "The Village
Coquettes," a comic opera which
Mr. Dickent wrote about that time,
attracted the attention of Meter.
Chapman and Hall, the publishers,
who applied to "Box" to prepare
for them aerial story to be issued
in monthly parte. The result was
the "Posthumous Memoirs of the
Pickwick Club,' with illustrations at
first from the pencil of Sey monr,and
alter his death, from that of Hablot
Fm Browne, "Pbla." Mr. Dickens has
given In a preface to later editions
of those famous memoirs, a very
interesting account of the concep
tion and growth of the work, which,
begun without any very definite
plan, rental a i the moet perfect
thing of ltt kind in the English
language.
The success of the "Pickwick
Papers" was immediate and great
Its wit, pathos, and shrewd pictur
ing of English character, high and
low, touched the heart and fancy
of all classes. The sayings of Sam
Waller were quoted by speakers in
the House of Parliament and by the
ragged gamin In the alums of Lon
don. "In lets than tlx months from
the appearance of the first number of
the ' Pickwick Papers,' the whole
reading public were talking about
them, the names of Winkle, Wardle,
Waller, Bnodgrast, Dodton, and
Fogg bad become familiar in our
montht as household terms: and
Mr. Dickens was the grand object
of interest to the whole
tribe of 'Leo-hunters,' male
and female, of the metropolis,
Nay, Pickwick chintzes figured In
Linen-drapers' windows, and Wei
ler corduroys in breecbes-makera'
advertisements ; Box cabs might be
teen rattling -through the streets,
and the portrait of the author of
1 Pelham' or, Crlcbton' was scraped
down or pasted over to make room
for that of the new popular favorite
in the omnibuses. This is only to
be accounted for on the supposition
that fresh vein of humor had been
opened; that a new and decidedly
original genius had sprung up ; and
the moet cursory reference to pre
ceding English writers of the comic
order will show that, la hit own
peculiar walk, Mr. Dickent It not
imply the most distinguished, but
the first"
At thlt time Dickent was twenty
three or twenty-four years old. He
ocepted the editorship of Ben
tUBf i ICiceUany, la which appear'
ed "Oliver Twist," In 1837. In 1840
appeared the series of tales known
under the general title of "Muter
Humphrey' Clock In 1842 he
published "Amercan Note." "Mar
tin Chuzzlewit" appeared In 1844
In 1846 he established the London
Dally News, himself u ed
itor-in-chief, and furnished for
its columns "Pictures from Italy."
He retired from the editorial
chair, having In 1843 pnblised "A
Christmas Coral." "The Chimes
In 1845, and "The Cricket on the
Hearth" in 1846. In 1847-8 he
published "Dombey and Son,"
1849-50 "David Copper field;"
"Bleak House" in 1853; "Hard
Times" In 1854; Little Dorrit" In
1856. In 1850 he started 'House
hold Words," a magazine which
wa merged into "All the Year
Hound" in whose page appeared
"A tale of the two Cities," "The
Uncommercial Papers" and "Great
Expectation." In 1864 appeared
Our Mutual Friend" and lutly the
"Myetery of Edwin Drood."
His readings In this country snd
In Europe were popular and he bad
the reputation of being the best
amatuer actor of bis dsy.
Diamonds. A spread cluster

and when arrested refused to give
any explauation of the tnauner In

that no mere factious opposition

-(Clarion, June XO.
iai Income i ax After an
enormous amount of debate, the
House last Friday voted to con
tiuue the income tax indefinitely,
but to reduce the rate to three per
cent., and increase the exemp
tion to two thUHaud dollars
This is the result of the vexed
question which bus, for a long
time, seemed most probable. It
indicates a partial relief from this
unjust and oppressive tax, and in
so far, is good. But Congress
nromised that the inmost should
cease altogether with the year
im'J, and u the people have un
mistakably pronounced against
its revival in any form, even this
improvement will not answer in
place of the total and uncondl
tional abolition of the tax. At
Mr. Kelley, of Philadelphia, rep
resenting a very woalthv constitu
ency, said in debate, the inquisi
torial features of the tax are its
worst concomitants. It involves
an unwarrantable interference with
the private affairs of everv man
Not less strong is the objection
that it is a direct tax upon honestv.
for rogues can evade its payment
readily, it rails to produce one
half what it would if the returns
were conscientiously made, and
those who go free are the men
whose moral rectitude la affected
by the question of dollars and
cents. The only true way is, to
reform it altogether, and rid the
country of an army of spies that
peer into the business of every
man, backed by . the. Government.

EM Or THE LE6ISLA
TIRE.
One of the moet disgraceful
scenes of the many scenes dis
graceful which have been enacted
by the Legislature now in session
in this State grew out of the ap
pointment to one of the Judge
ships, W. Ben. Cunningham, car
pet-bag member from Madison
county. This man,. like a perfect
official leech, aa all of his ilk are,
deaired to be continued in the pos
session of his seat in the Legisla
ture to the very latest moment,
and although he had filed his
oath of office aa Judge in the office
of the Secretary of State, he crept
in there, abstracted the oath and
destroyed it, hoping thereby to
retain the per diem and other
perquisites of his Legislative po
sition to the very lost moment.
This eonduct subjected him, as it
should in justice, to the severest
criticism from his own party.
Even the colored members, whom
these carpet baggers boast they
lead by the nose, were full of in
dignation and loudest la condem
nation. This sceno of itself
should prevent Governor Alcorn
from making such appointments,
even if he was not absolutely pro
hibited from so doing by the pro
visions of the Constitution.
For a man of his accredited
ability, genius and research, Gov
ernor Alcorn knows less of law,
or regards it less than any man in
the State.
There can be no proposition
plainer than that Governor Al
corn is absolutely prohibited by
the Constitution from appointing
members of the Legislature to
Judgeships in the State.
If he has examined the law his
action shows that he has been
terribly overrated, or that he has
determined that bis will shall be
supreme, and that he will over
ride the law. Or If he has not ex
amined he has failed to perform
hit duty in thus blindly plunging
along, entailing endless litigation
upon the people by his mal-ad
ministration.
Tuke either horn of the dilciunn
you plcuo, and it is clear he is, in
this respect, if in no other, not the
right man in the right place. Sec
tion 38, of article 4, legislative de
partment of the Constitution,
says :
" No senator or representative
during the term for which he was
elected, shall be appointed to any
office or honor or profit under the
State, which shall have been
created, or the emoluments of
which have been increased during
the time such senator or repre
sentative was in office, except to
tuch offices as may be filled by a
election by the people."
Ibe present Legislature hu
created these Judgeships. They
were never created before. P. is
true the Constitution requires that
they shall be created, and specially
commands the Legislature to
create them. The authority for
this is in the 13th and 17th sections
of the sixth or judiciary article.
The thirteenth section commands
the Legislature to perform this
duty,, not by letter of the law, but
by the spirit of it, since the order
is made, and there is no other
power authorized to do it ; but in
the seventeenth section the Legis
lature is directed in this language :
" The Ley i da tare shall divide the
State into a convenient number of
Chancery Districts." There, then,
is a direct command to the Legis
lature to create. It may be argued
that the delegation of this au
thority by the Constitution is a
creation, of this position, by that
instrument We entertain a differ
ent opinion. The delegation of
power by the Constitution to the
Legislature is a constructive decla
ration in the Constitution that it
possesses the right and power,
but it waives all this, for the sake
of amplification in special and com
prehensive enactment, and em
powers, the Legislature. The
whole letter and spirit of the Con
stitution shows that by its own
voluntary act it divests itself of
this power, and confers it upon
another, that of. the Legislature,
the only law making power. The
tame prohibition u that quoted
from article 4 of the State Consti
tution is found in the United
States Constitution, which declares
that " No senator or representa
t:e shallduringthetonnfor which
m m elected, be appointed to
any civil office under the authority
of the United States which shall
have been created, or the emolu
ments whereof shall .have been
increased during such term."
It is the spirit of all honest law.
Article HI, Distribution of pow
ers, provides that "the powers of
Government of the State of Mis
sissippi shall be divided into three
distinct departments, and .each of
them confided to a separate body
of magistracy, to-wit: Those
which are Legislative to one ;t hose
which sre Judicial to another and
those which are Executive to
another. No person or collec
tion of persons being one of these
departments, shall exercise any
power properly belonging to
either of the others except in the
Instances hereinafter expressly
directed or permitted."
This is done to preserve purity
and the proper balance of power.
And iu this provision is the spirit
of the command that the Judicial,
Legislative and Executive shall be
kept separate' and distinct. Else
where we have quoted the letter
of command.
Suppose that Governor Alcorn
should desiro much greater pow
er than has been already given
him: that he should want half a
million of secret service fund in
stead of 150,000 as now granted
him and many other special priv
ileges, how easily would it be for
him in the gift of these immense
number of long term and profita
ble positions, to subsidize, without
any cost to himself, a sufficient
number of the Legislature. The
Constitution did not intend that
the Governor shall be empowered
to bribe members of the Legisla
ture to obey bis behests, for it says
that no member"shall be appointed
to office during the term for which
he it elected," consequently re
liyning does not make bira ellgi
ble to one of these positions. The
term for which membert were
elected It certainly during the lit
Uitg ot tue Legislature, if not for
two years.
Then there is the question of
salary. The Legislature certuin
ly provided for the pay attached to
these positions and regulated the
amounts to be paid. That por
tion then wu certainly created.
If it is urged that the pay of the
Judges was provided by the old
law, then there has been an "in
crease of emolument" for the pay
is greater now than before.
Does any one pretend to say
that the Circuit Court District of
Warren and Hinds was created by
the Constitution? Or deny that
it was not created by the Legisla
ture? If all acts of the Leg
islature passed in accordance
with the provisions of the Con
stitution are the acts of the
Constitution and not of the
Legislature, then the Legislature
does nothing and the Constitution
all. Because laws pasted by the
Legislature not in harmony with
the Constitution are null and void.
Hence, if the Legislature can do
anything in Itself it can and even
has created these Judgeships.
Section Twenty-four of Article
Four, says the "Legislature shall
from time to time, establish such
other inferior Courts as msy be
necessary." Under this provision
if Criminal Courts were estab
lished in every county in the State
would they be created by the
Legislature, or by the Constitu
tion? Or, if upon the other hand,
should the Legislature fail or re
fuse to create any Courts under
this provision would it disregard
the command of the Constitution?
The acts of the Constitution rela
tive to these Courts are not self
executing. No Courts could exist
through the simple provisions of
the Constitution.
The celebrated case of Groves
and Slaughter, argued before the
Supreme Court by Webster, Clay
and others, clearly define this
matter of self-executing Constitu
tional provisions.

Radical rule In the South ac
complishes greater wonders than
ever before conceived. Corrup
tion, fraud, hypocrisy and kindred
vices are but additional recom
mendations to Radical constituen
cy. A cose in point is this: The
pious Radical carpet bagger and
cadet peddler, Whlttemore,
whom the scrupulously honest
and eminently , sanctimonious
Congress could not associate with,
and Indignantly kicked out, as Lo
gan said, for selling his Influence
at so cheap a rote, has been re
elected by his negro constituency.
It is alleged that he effected this
triumph over bis virtuous foes in
Congress by imposing upon his
plantation constituents the belief
that "the cadetsbip which he was
convicted of selling wu an old
worn-out ship which he disposed
of because it leaked." Under
tho circumstances, the intelligent
voters of his district considered it
a clear case of persecution and re
elected him at once.
But the question now is, what
will Congress do about it? How
can the great Dirty Work Logan
associate with such a man? The
pious Van Wyck, of New York,
who occupies a seat to which
another man wu elected, will be
grossly scandalized by such a con
temporary! How is it possible
for the pious Scheack to abide
the companionship of this man?
Then all the other loyal brethren
who were convicted of the same
offense u Whlttemore, but mag
nanimously shared hit punishment
what will they say to his com
ing back? It is a troublesome
question staring that godly and
exemplary body straight in the
face. It it an elephant ot gigan
tic proportions. A Wuhington
correspondent say a: "Few appear
to be settled in their own minds
as to what course they can pursue.
It appears that there is no prece
dent for this cue. Members ex
pelted have been returned to i
succeeding CaeCVM uw
before at the same session." Some
body suggests that he be tried by
a military commission and hanged
But that would never do, because
he Is loyal. Military commissions
and banging are only for disloyal
Democrats. But will Congress
dare to receive back the man they
have just expelled ? Will it not
be stultification to Uke him back?
We know there is not much more
dignity left in Congreu than hon
esty ; but will it not be derogatory
from the meuure of dignity that
is left to have this proven peddler
of appointments, this reverened
Har and perjurer, thrust back upon
it?"
But we Imagine that the virtu
ous indignation of the noisy hip
ocrites exhausted Itself in the
expulsion at this representative
scoundrel, and that now hit con
ttituenta have indorsed his crime
a reconstructed constituency,
mind you he will be taken in u
a fit u socials of many who were
his colleagues in crime, and who
will not condemn themselvei by
voting for his rejection.
Babies' Leos. Bow-legs and
knock-knees are among the com
mon deformities of humanity; and
wise mothers in either case arises
from the afflicted one having been
put upon his or her feet too early
in babyhood. But a Manchester
physician, Dr. Crompton, who hu
watched for the true cause, thinks
differently. He attributes the first
mentioned distortion to a habit
some youngsters delight in, of
rubbing fjthe sole or one root
against that of the other; some
will go to sleep with the soles
pressed together. They appear
to enjoy the contact only when
the feet are 'naked ; they don't at
tempt to make it when they are
socked or slippered. So the rem
edy is obvious; keep the baby's
soles covered. Knock kneet the
doctor ttcribes to a different child
ish habit, that of sleeping on the
aide, with one knee tucked into
the hollow behind the other
He hu found that where one leg J
hod been bowed in more than the
other, the patient has always slept
on one tide, and the uppermost
member hu been that most de
formed. Here the preventive is to
pod the insides of the knees to at
to keep them apart, and let the
limbt grow freely their own way.
