A BLUSHING fraternity of architecture in St
Louis have preferred the modest request that
no buildings be permitted to be erected in that
city excepting those for which they furnish
plans. This gushing emanation of pride and
self-appreciation gives one a clear view of the
art architectural in that fortunate city. We
trust the council will meet this extraordinary
modeaty half way.
A vulgar climax, a mean and wanton ab
surdity, is the pretence of some Northern
journals that there are men in the South who
have not accepted the constitutional guaran
tees as to slavery. This insolence of political
audacity Is perpetually running into expres
sion. There may, indeed, be those in the
South whose honor would not restrain them
from going back on the multiplied public
pledges of the unanimous people to maintain
tver, like honest men and patriots, these con
stitutional guarantees, but there Is not a man,
from the Pennsylvania border to the Rio
Grande, who is such a fool as ever to have
contemplated so ridiculous an enterprise as

l'OKTHY A I'ltKCAIllOUS AltT.
The idleness of effusing poetry is fit indul
gence for youths troubled with a light brain,
and an annuity to keep them from sorrow.
These work like blacksmiths. Of course
their relations to the literary world is remote,
the affinities being weak and sickly, and they
rely little upon thought. "I will own to you,"
said Chesterfield to his son, "that whatever
reputation i have acquired as a speaker is
more owing to my constant attention to my
diction than to my matter." And so the
young poet of ease and culture finds in melo
dy, or measure, the safety he is unable to find
in sense. Indeed the uninspired world is not
amenable to the charge of harshness in rating
poets as it does. For a moment imagine
yourself one. Imagine yourself over
a rhyming dictionary in pursuit of
jingle, or counting on your fingers the al
ternate sylable to get at rhythm. Is it any
wonder that contempt lor such exercise should
be commensurate with our respect for true
thought clothed in its own emanations t Into
the world of letters, strong, robust and
healthy, come a line of stately thoughts
awakening responses in all congenial minds,
it matters not in what diction or form of lan
guage clothed. These are the enduring chil
dren ol spirit and intellect that take all
shapes, distributing the elements of power
abroad, securing progress in the substantial
works of time and redeeming the mental
world from all reasonable fear of any fatal
mischance on account of its poetry.

viction. The Washington Post contained the follow
ing item of news:
The Department of Justice was notified
yesterday that Stilwcll II. Russell, who was
convicted at San Antonio, Texas, on Wednes
day, of defrauding the Government out of
$40,000 or $50,coo, was yesterday sentenced
to two years in the Chester, Illinois, peniten
tiary. Russell was appointed Marshal of the
Western District ol Texas by President Hayes,
and was an applicant for teappointment
under President Arthur, in March, 18S2, when
he was arrested on complaint made by oel
W. Howman and Z. L. Tidball, examiners in
the Department of Justice, who had dis
covered that he had rendered false accounts
as Marshal. Representative John Hancock,
member ol Congress from Texas, and Major
Cimpleman were his official sureties. When
the charges were first preferred, it is said the
latter sold all of his property and went to
Mexico. During ttie last Congressional elec
tion in Texas, Rutsell was the Republican
candidate against Culberson, Democrat, who
Stilwcll H. Russell, the person above re
ferred to, has had quite an eventful life. Dur

Secretary of the Ku-Rlux organization, in
Texas, but foreseeing the destruction of that
combination he deserted it, assumed the pro-
tession 01 loyalist, and loudly espoused Re
publicanism, and, through an tnblushing dis
play of adamantine cheek and some ability,
succeeded in acquiring conspicious position
as a party manager in that Mate, where he
very soon made himsell paiticularly obnox
ious by repeated betrayals of Important public
trusts. It is probable that the enviable noto
riety thus gained was Russell's principal re
commendation, and seemed to induce that
truly good man, Mr. Hayes, to appoint him
During the investigation by Messrs. Tid
ball and liowman of the charges of embezzle
ment against Russell, the latter was in Wash
