Entered at postofflce at San Antsnto, Texas, as socond-claes matter. TU1C1AY, MAY 1J5, 1883. IIOMcr.oi'ATHY is the top dog in the fight in New York. Timothy Kelly was convicted on his third trial and hangs on June I. Senator Anthony, after all, means to deny his friends a funeral. A man standing upon his dignity when he has none has a bad footing. This is as far as we have investigated. Taimage describes the dude as the nux vomica of modern society. They are certain ly very bitter and poisonous weeds. The April showers that might have pro duced May flowers have verified the old apothegm of nothing ventured, nothing won. David Davis and the average newspaper man have dissolved. He has warned the "average," and swears, by his honeymoon, it shall be a permanent divorce. New Jersey justice is lively. A man was arrested on Saturday for robbery and on the ensuing Thursday entered the State's prison at Trenton, sentenced to eight years. Ex-IIon. Roscoe Conklino has settled the presidential question. He says the Demo cratic party will elect the next President. But we do not proposcto retire upon our patriot ism. It is detrrmined that the second national cotton exhibition shall be held in New Or leans. The cotton industry in all parts of the world will be represented and the exhibition be made purely industrial. And now Massachusetts denies to Governor Butler the merit ol having got her in fightinp trim, and launched het into the great war, aided and assisted by his predecessor, Gov ernor John A. Andrew, 22 years ago. Is there to be no end to this enmity toward a virtuous and peaceful executive ? The Boston daily press is chiefly occupied in following up the consequences of the several wars and other enterprises of Ills Excellency, the Governor. This little docket of public business on his hands does not, however, prevent His Excellency from giving attention to a large and Important professional practice, lie could not-aflord the luxury of being Gov ernor on Massachusetts pay, but it is not at present without hopes of making a neat for tune. He started in the Executive office with $10,000,000 only. The Governor of Pennsylvania has declared forfeited the charters of near 700 corporations on thegrjund that they have failed to make returns to the Attorney General within three yean. This wholesale delinquency is abun dantly suggestive. Let not the moral of the incident be lost with the losses of the stock holders, whose ruin should be made subservi ent to others' safely. Pennsylvania has a very long and prohibitory constitution, but it is not long enough, nor prohibitory enough. Legis lation should be shorn of all creative priv- itege. The methods and persistence by which the Indians arc perpetually swindled out of their lands is a crying wrong which President Arthur has resolutely set his face against. United States Senator Logan's purpose of "taking if he could get it" the land which the Government ceded or confirmed to th Tun! Indians has come to grief; and while tli country is not signally advanced by the spec tacle of one of its Senators making such base use of his official position there is not super added the humiliation of his "getting it." The life of mind, joyous with the fragrance of roses and ihe beauty and stateliness of the lily, grows buoyant with the sense of one at t&lnment. The sensibilities go with the senses into the precincts of the beautiful where the soul, regnant with conscious life, waits on Ihe world. Something exultant comes as thoughts of futurity fashioned, not from its past, not stagnant reversions of olden time, but teeming with new gifts, new powers and new posses sions. It is more than mystery and yet less than real. Hut covering every opening with the charm of vision, when the walls crumble and the floors give way, then reality lifts it into a presence to which its dreams were as faded fairy wonders, a nursery tale. It is thiis wc put on immortality and pass over the threshold of everlasting. A I. Aim IN .SCOTLAND. Abundant and obvious are the evidences that the rough earth is entitled to be called our mother; her offspring, in her different local ities, denote by their characteristics the place where they were born. The varieties of her progeny correspond with varieties of clime ; and characteristics of one age, whatever cen turies intervene, distinguish all. Continents perpetuate species peculiar to themselves, and countries of each reproduce them with belter defined varieties and unmistakable character istics, so that not only mother earth, but mother country, as a badge of origin and race, accompanies us as language does, into what ever unaccustomed dominions cur steps tend. English, Irish, Scotch ; vhat a little piece of earth the whole vhree comprehend, yet how deeply grooved are the ways through which the characteristics of each move, and how wholly unlike is each to the others. The moth er country,more than mother earth, supplic the strong lines and marks of difference. The ebony African, the swarthy Asiatic, and the fair European, do not differ more in com plexion than these three in mental and per sonal characteristics. Each has filled the world with the renown of gifted sons in letters, art, philosophy and statesmanship; and, yet. in all superstitions prevail as widely, and reign as.supremely, as among African tribes. "Calcitonin, stem mid wild Meet iiiu-30 for a pootlo child." has been revising her registers of births, and finds to her dismay, that she is having a sur plus ol boys. I here are 107 boys born to every 100 girls. This has awakened the old superstition, that such excess is a sure fore runner of war. Scolch intellect would hardly accept the phenomenal idea that war is a natural production, and that nature thus pro vides for its contingencies, yet the moral of the superstition is that. If we were to step within the vestibule of this ancient superstition we should pro nounce the event logically a providential act. The increase of war material need not Implicate nature in the cause. On the other hand, we have not heard that an excess of females, in nations where such excesi prevails, has been fruitful in securing peice. It is better to await the turn of events and not alarm Europe by giving immediate attention to burnishing Scotch arms and organizing drill. Scotland is a peaceful clime.
