The Mumpbio Appeal claims that the

On all other questions or subject,
Hayes seems to have pretty good sense,
except about tho negro. The telegraph
reports that he advicl somo gentle

While Iho Mississippi Senate
humming aud hawing, and backing and
Ailing about passing a simple resolu
tion to "iustrucl" or "request" our Sen
atorj to voto for silver, it gives us
treat pleasure to notice that tho Lou
iiiana Senate has passed a wise resolu
tlon In regard to President Hayes,
The resolution approves the Pres.
dent'i course of peace, conciliation and
instlce towards the Southern States,
and encourages those who think bis
tfforta ouiiht to be sustaiued by all
.:v..n.inii Miimna. This resolu
tion will reflect credit on the whole
South, and if we only bad some men In
our Legislature to advocate an epprov
.i nt thu President's constitutional
course toward! the South, we believe
It would tend to still further disconcert
our fanatical enemies.
Am ladantrloa Body.
No one can now doubt that our Leg
islature is, If not an extremely able
body, a vory industrious one. It has
been in session only ten days, end al
lowiugjthat it was in session six hours
a day, it has only bad sixty working
hours. Tbe amount of work that it
has done is almost incredible It ha,
organized, and it aided at the Govern
or's inauguration, and it bas generated
enough gas to last Jackson seventeen
years. Three hundred bills a day have
bocn introduced, and one whole bill, or
part of a bill, has been passed. A Slate
Couventiou has been discussed, al
though not one cillzjn of Ibe State in
five ia in favor ol a State Convention ;
the Lien Law bas been timidly touch
ed upon, and one Senator bas declared
that he doubted whether three Senators
kuew anything about the great finan
cial issue now before tbe American
people. Tbe Legislature has pltyedsbut
tleeock with the resolution to instruct
our Repretentetives as to tbe scuilme.it
of tbe State on tbe financial question,
and all in all It will take Ibe most labo
rious efforts of the people to calculate
tbe amount of work the present Legis
lature has accomplished. One whole
bill, or at least a part of a bill, has been
passed. That bill was to make an ap
propriation for the salaries of the over
worked members 1 This is good, very
good. If this body keeps on in this
industrious way, the people won't want
another Legislature to go back to Jack
son before 1885. This very industrious
body having finished all earthly busi
ness, is now pegging away at hell. Tbe
Solonsl We know what Ihey are
driving at. With all their red tape,
circumlocution, and finely drawn
phrases and leniences, they can't de
ceive us. They aro sklrmls' Inn
around to find out if there
is a hell, and If there is, they
intend to abolish it. Don't be skepti
cal on this point, reader, for we
tell you this is their purpose. They
know there is a Vicksburg, and there
is a proposition to abolish Vicksburg,
and uo sain! nun will deny their ability
to abolish I i n if thoy can rub out
Vicksburg, lor ever) body kuows (bat
the Hill City i the next thing to hell.
It may possibly be truly said that the
industrious Legislature, Mr. Shands,
Vicksburg and hell are hold in equal
esicem by the people of tbe S'alo. In
the meantime there is painful solici
tude for fear that the Legislature will
over crop I'siif. If it wi'l get through
about one bill a month, and not draw
9 Hilary more than once, the people
will be delighted. In Iho meantime, if
It wishes to indulge in a little recrea
tion, with Mr. as clown, tin peo
plo will agree lo it. We know this to
bo o, for we know there is no way, for
the present, lor the people to help
themselves. The public are universal
ly nppocd to the number putting any
xira strain on their brains, for there is
a well defined (tar that some of them
wouldn't stand it.
Moral "All work and no play makes
J ick a dull boy."
N. B. For all this work, and the
farro '.brown in, the Stato only pys

Senator Bahky made the remarka
ble statement in the Mississippi Senate,
on Wednesday, that he did not think
bote wero more than two or three
Senators tbat understood the Silver
Bill. On this matter that courtesy that
hould exist between harntd law-giv
ers ought lo have admonished Senator
Dirry to speak for himself only. Ibe
simple proposition to remonotize silver
coin may be too deep for Mr. Birry to
understand, but we think uine-teuths I
of tbo people of Mississippi, of the
South, of iho West, and of Iho whole
Union, lully understand It. The S iuih
fully understands it, brcamo sho :en
see no earthly reason for repudiating
the c';in slut served our lord ithors so
well for nearly a hundred years, and
i hat enabled Fiance to ruuio coin
pajmenia with case. Tho East under
stands it, because she believes that re
lief given iu this manner to tho. groat
mass of the people will be at lha ex
pense of her bondholders and pap
sutkers. Cotton understands it, be- j
causo it continues lo go down
down, aud the South and West,
up to this time, have cousenled lo
be the hewers of wood aud drawers
of water for the money power. In fact,
the question is so simple that all who
ifdnf to understand it, can read it as
plainly as one who has been taught by
that hard teacher experience. Let
Mr. Barry speak for himself, hereafter,
and let our Legislature, after it blows
awhile over the immense work it has
already accomplished, adopt a simple
resolution requesting our Senators
to vote for the Silver Bill.

Till LAST PBEMDENTIAL ELECTION IN
TEREiTINO DISCUSSION,
Mr. King's resolution on this subject,
reported from tbe committee on Koueral
Relation, came up for action.
Mr. Koote said he orp sed ibe resulut on
luenmmitf e, and could see no good that
would result in It, adoption lha it mi. lit
re-awaken prejudice, against tbe Southern
D oiilo. That be Indorsed the prinolplet
enunciated In It, aud would vote for It, but
thuuebt the bast policy at ibis late day
would be to let the matter rest.
r. Allen doubted the propriety of the
L'linaiure expressing a judlclsl opinion
on tbe constitutionality of the Electoral
Commisaion that some of the beat law
yer, lo th land tbouttbt it was oonstliu
tiooal, and II it wa, nt Mr. Tllden should
have pressed bis claima to the I'.esldeney
before the Court.
Mr. Cowan wanted the resolution refer
red to Committee on K deral Relatluns.or
madeipecial order for an early day
Mr. King (poke In favor ol tbo adoption
of tbe resolution, not that it would undo
tbe work of tbe CommlMion, but that be
wanted to condemn it a a precedent.
Mr. Griffin thought the poop e ol Missis
sippi bad already done enough for Mr
Tilden.
Mr, Allen moved to strike out the word
"unconstitutional."
Mr. fratt ihouiht tbe resolution should
I be adopted a reported Irom committee.
unless it could be maue a ntiio stronger
Ue was In favor ol aasumlng full responsi
bility In condemning tbe Kliclorai Iraud.
Mr. Cowan aald he would aupporl the
motion to strike out tbe word unoonstlta.
lional but wanted tbe reiolutton adopted
a, an expression of tbo people ol ibe
State.
Mr. Allen, tld he moved to strike out
"unoonslilulionar" beoiitsae be did not
wish to reflect upon Ike Democrstlv House
ol Representatives, wbo adopted tbe Elec
toral Commission measure.
Mr. Morgan thought itunwlae to adopt
theretolu'ion. Tbe Eleoto al Commissi n
had received tbe aanotlon of tbe Demo
cratic members ol Congrosa, and because
lb C' mraissliin did not deolde to tult u,
we should not tot now eondemn.
Mr. Terry oalled attention to the laot
tbat the resolution denominated tbe Kleo
loral Cumm. salon a a "partisan Commit
Ion." Mr. West taid It was a "partisan Con
mission," a, it wa, oompostd of an equal
num'ior ol Ucmocral, and Republican,,
with tbe Judicial element thrown in, and
the selection of the odd man waa deoided
by loi, and tbat thl, man really decided
question, before tbe CominUsion. He
thought the measure an unconatltutlonal
one, tbe deoiaton of tbe majority a Iraud,
and he wa, in lavor of speaking out aod
condemning It.
Th" hour for consideration of special or
der having arrived, .lopped discussion on
ibe resolution.

Mr. l'ratt said ii w a, out ol tbe province

WAI THERE A HEEDLESS IACBIFICB Of
LITE IN TBI INVESTMENT OF BICH
MOND. General Bicbard Taylor In Sortb Amerl-

After tbe battle of Chlcamauea. In
1803, General Grant was promoted to
the command of the armies ot tbe
United States and called to Washing
ton. In a conference at the War office
between blra, President Llncolo and
Secretary Stanton, the approaching
campaign iu Virginia wat discussed.
Grant said Ibe advance on Richmond
should be made by the Jiroes river. It
was replied that the Government requir
ed tbe interposition ol an atmy between
Lee and Washington, and would
not consent at tbat la'e day to
(be adoption of a plan that
would bs taken by tbe publlo as a con
fession of previous error. Grant ob
served he was indifferent as to routes,
but if the Government preferred its
own so often tried to the one ne
suggestod, It must be prepared for the
additional loss of one hundred tnou
snd men. Tho men were promised.
Graut accepted the Governmental plan
of campaign, and was supported to the
end. The above came to me well au
thenticated, and I have no doubt of Ita
correctness. During bis operation! In
tbe Peninsula and near Richmond,
Gen. McClellaii complained much of
Ibe want of support. I think the con
stancy with which President Lincoln
adhered lo him was, under the circum
stances, surprising. He had drifted
away Irom the dominant Washington
sentiment and alienated tbe sympathies
of his Government. Hit fall waa in
evitable ; tho affections of the army but
hastened It. Even victory could not
save him. He fell Into tbe habit of
saying, "My army," "My soldiers."
Such phraseology may be used by a
Fi'cduiick or a Napoleon sovereigns
as well at Generals but officers com
mand the armies of their Governments.
Gcu. McClollsn is an upright, patrlotio
man, iucapablo of wrong-doing. Ue
has a high standard of morality and
lives closer to It than most men
dn a lower one; but it it
io be remembered that the
example of ihe good are temptations
and opportunities to the unscrupulous
Tho habit of thought underlying such
laiigu ge, or toon engendered by Its
use, hat undo Mexico and the South
American K'publics ibe wonder aud
corn of civilization. Tbe foregoing ac
count of McC'lellan'e fall, aud the cause
thereof, is deemed portiuout because
be was the central figure in Ihe North
ern field and laid tbe foundation of
Nortliorn success. Above all, he, and
a gallant band of offlcort supporting
bim. Impressed a generous, chivalrio
spirit on ihe conduct of the war; which
soon faded away after hit downfall ;
and Ibe future historian in recounting
some later operations will doubt if be
is dealing with eampalgut of General!
or expedition! of brigandt.
