The wicked Radicals, in Congress,
have gloated over the cry of distress
which reaches their ears from' the
South ; but when that cry is echoed
and re-ocboed from New England,
thej are terro-striken at the probable
consequences of their brutal legisla
tion. Their black protoges under
the management of their yankee
overseers, are likely to starve id the
South, but this would not disturb
their equniinity, because all they want
is to vote the negroes in one Presiden
tial election, and whether successful or
not', they will be glad to get rid of
their elephant by starvation, or any
other means. But when the whites
of the North, thrown out of employ
ment by tens of thousands, titter a
cry of distress the case is different.
They now begin to discover that their
malignant efforts to ruin the whites
of the South have a retro-active force
which was neither ' calculated nor
forseen, and it also strikes them that
however widely the Union may be
severed, there is a unity of suffering
between the two sections. The Rad
ical leaders are beginning to be aware
of the additional fact that if this mu
tual cry of distress is cariod into the
next canvass, it will be the death
knell of . their, party.. Ilence their
demoralisation and frantio efforts to
ave themselves by elingingtoQrant'a
coat-tail, and the effort to raiso some
new issue by which the peoplo may
be cheated into their further support.
But they can no longer disguise their
infamous character and designs ;
their destiny is fixed and popular
vengcanoe can not be averted.
The glare of military fame is often
mistaken for the inaninifebtaUon of
the higest qualities of the statesman as
well as the purest patiotism and love
of justice and liberty. This mistake
has recently been made in two nota
ble instances. The names of Grant
and Sherman have both been men
tioned iu connection with the Prcsi
deney. To-day, we publish a letter
from each, in which the former en
dorses the foul crimes committed by
Stanton and Sheridan, and. the latter
assumes the responsibilty for the
cold blooded murders and systematic
robberies of Iiurbridgo. It is a sin
gulur coincidence as well as.fortu
nato disclosure for the country. No
nnntako can now bo mado iu estima
ting the ohuroterof these two ehoul
dcr strapped aspirants to the Pres
idency, and a voto for either is a vote
for a deliberate' defender of the most
atrocious crimes agaiust lifeJibcrty
and property.
It may be that the enquiry about
to be instituted by the Legislature of
Kentucky, Into the conduct of Bur
bridge may commit Sherman to more
than he bargained for, but is too
late to recede: his endorsement is
without, couditions.
Every honest patriot must be tired
of the northern clamor for protection
to American citizens abroad, at a time
when ten millions of American citi
sous, at home, are groaning under i
despotism unsurpassed, for lawlosness
and insulting cruelty, by anything
of the kind on reoord. It is not sym
pathy for England that suggest these
remaks, but the hypocritcal pretense
of love of justio upon which that
clamor is based. A naturalized citi
sen may go abroad and violate the
laws of tho country in which he is
sojourning, but must not be punish
ed because he is an Ameican'citizen.
A Southern man, though a native ciU
izon, who stays at homo, violuting no
law of his country, is inBulted,a des
poiled and trampled upon just be
cause he is a native, but, unluckily,
was not born in tho frigid aono of
Puritanism, nor idoctrinated in that
Radicalism which seeks to uproot the
tho very foundations of ChUtianity,
morality and civil liberty.

We now speak, quite an excitement had been
occasioned in the village by the appe trance
ot tne oaugliter or one of the old fishermen,
who, by some means never fully known, had
lain by a competency. Be . had sent his
only daughter to ladies' seminary, to get
an eoucauon, wnicn woum, in tbe course
of time, enable her to take a better position
in society, tone was tall and graceful, and
while the humble fishermen's sons loved her,
they admired her reverently, for her tastes,
her knowledge, ber wealth, all convinced
them that she would never condescend to be
tbe wife of a fisherman.
Ella for that was ber name seldom ap
peared in public, only when she eailed in
ber little boat with ber father upon the bey,
and this seemed ber greatest delight In one
of Uwee little excursions, she baa attempted
to go alone, but far oot upon the bay a storm
arose that rendered ber situation somewhat
perilous. In this emergency, Sandy, who
waa near by In but larger boat, proffered hie
assistance. Of coarse, under these circum
stances, it was accepted, and this incident
Klla and Sandy were made acquainted. She,
with a woman's curiosity, desired to visit
Sandy's home, and was here introduced to
Tons. She was immediately struck with his
gentlemanly unaffected manner, and after-
war as would sometimes call with ber old
father, and rest at their little door. Sandy
was now desperately in love with Ella, "tbe
belle of the Senoc," as she was called, and
frequently gained the privilege of Silting
who uer and art lather upon tbe waters ot
tbe bay. Ella herself began to look upon
sandy and but brother iu a different manner,
and saw much in tbcm which she could ad
mire. One evening Sandy returned to bis
but after a pleasant sail with Ella and ber
father, and by bis excited manner immedi
ately attracted the attention of his brother,
who, suspecting tbe cause, said nothing, but
went about preparing tueir evening meal,
Before, they retired, Sandy declared that
"the more be saw of Bella Ella, tbe more he
loved ber."
"To-day," said he, "she was very kind to
me, and, Tom, I really believe that she be
gins to love me,"
Tom said nothing. He, too. loved her.

"I guess it is nothing but the wind," said
So Tom took up bis hat, and holding it so
that the rough wind would not blow it off,
he went down to the beach, and tbere, away
out, struggling iu ber litUe bout to make a
landing, was Ella, every wave threatening
to overturn the frail craft. She was in Im
minent danger. Tom Instantly ran to a
boat lying on the beach, and quickly pushing
it oil, wiu soon far out on tbe waters. As
lie diew near to Ella, the wind became more
boisterous, and as Turn drew still nearer,
Ella rose to grasp the bow of bis boat, but a
sadden gust of wind cansed ber to lose ber

her weight on the half-sunken side, it keeled
completely over, and she was instantly
struggling In the water. She sank I Tom
plunged wildly into tbe serging waves, and
grasping her arm, brought her again to the
surface, apparently lifeless. He chafed ber
bands, bringing renewed action and warmth
to her system. She soon opened ber blue
eyes and smiled tbe thanks the could not au
dibly express. As soon as Tom reached the
shore be bore her to his hut, bidding her to
occupy tbe chamber of bis mother, and pre
pared ber some warm herb tea, which soon
revived her. Sandy was also astldiout in
his attentions. When ber father, full of
anxiety concerning ber, appeared to tnke her
bonie, sne smiled to sweetly and tnanaea
Tom so sincerely, that the envy and Jealousy
of Sundy were aroused, and compressing his
lips, with evil thoughts rankling in his breast,
be turned away eli tried into tbe attic. He
looked out of lbs window, aad ber anew
torment awaited him, for Tom was getting
into the light conveyance and going borne
with Ella and ber futher. Muttering a dura
threat, Sandy turned from the window.

He grasped a large billet of wood tight

quickly away, and hid behind a cliff near
the rood. Here be awaited, muttering curse
as if be were a madman. Anon, the tears
would flow from his wild eyes, and tben grasp

road on his way borne. He is smiling, aud
seems to be thinking of some pleosnnt antic
ipations, witu bis bead bent to tne wind.
He posses the cliff where, with dilated eye

tears begin to mlr; somewhat relieved by
these buruiug tokens of grief, and wearied
iu body and soul, he falls Into a troubled
slumber, muttering in bis dreams uf the sad
rate or bis brother.
Tbe next day Sandy dared not go forth from

About five yean after this time, a stranger
arrived in the village. He frequently tailed
aUmt upon the bay, snl was emu f'.urvl
None knew who b we. Sandy bad seen
bim, bat there was always something la the
look of tbe stranger that cansed Sandy to
shun bim. At length, one day when Sandy
went to get bis boat, be sw the stranger out
upon the waters drawing near to where he
was standing, Sandy could not bear the
gaze of the yonng man, so be aadly turned
and walked towards bis deserted borne.
Again, late in the afternoon, when be return
ed from fishing out on tbe the bay .unexpected
ly met tne stranger upon tbe snore. Tbey
looked at each other for a bretf moment
when Sandy, fearing that by some means the
young man knew 'the truth, be, conscience
troubled, turned and flew to his cottage as
the deer flies from the huntsman. ' When be!
reached bis little dreary home he closed the
door, bolted the windows, and in a frenzy of
excitement, nung bimseir npoa his couch.
Standing op be wildly cried i
What If he knows of my brothert Why

of bis remorse, be lay upon the cot antil

autil at lost starting from bis couch, be gave l
one shriek, and filled with a ridden mad
ness, be tore open but door, and ran down
tbe path toward the fatal cliff from whence
bis brother bad been burled. A be rushed
toward tbe spot be cried, "Oh 1 my brother I
Tom I Tom i I'll go down in the dark, cold
water to yon, and 1 11 ask yon to forgive me."
At length be stood near the edge of the cliff,
and wildly gazing upon the dork waters be
low, seemed to be spell boned to the spot
tben lilting bis arms on blgh, be turned to
ward tbe projecting point, and preparing to
jump, be bent bit knees foe tbe fatal leap.
uut suddenly a arm band grasped bis collar.
and drew him with an irresistible power
from the cliff. Sandy turned to tee who the
intruder was.
"Greet God I" he gasped "the stranger I"
Tbe stranger tenderdy laid bios on tbe

That one word was enough. He gazed
but for an instant upon the face of tbe
stranger, and cried :
"My brother I, My Tom I"
It was all be could say. ne attempted
to clasp his brother's neck but failed in the
Tenderly Tom leaned over his prostrate
body and chafed tbe bronzed btndt of bit
lone-lost brother.
When Sandy revived he begged Tom's for

deep importunity to be torgtven. HJebrotti
er clamed bim in bis arms.
"Sandy, I forgive you. Com to our little
home, and I'll tell you all."
He gently led bit brother to bis little hot.
end then in the darkness, sitting on the old
couch, be told Sandy the whole story.
After I rescued Ella, I thought it might
be ratbrr mean in me to take advantage of.
inat taci, to claim ner love, l loved her,
Sundy, but I knew that yon had loved her
first, aud as I came down tbe road that night,
I resoled that I would not stand in your
way. While I wot thinking of i'lit I beard a
footstep and I knew it was yours, but before
1 could speak, I was left in painlul darkness,
aud all was blank. When I revived 1 found
myself struggling in the bay, and. instantly
comprehending the cause of my situation, 1
resolved that you should never see my face
again. I traveled far away to Australia,
and there in Melbourne I sought and receiv.
ed a situation at porter in a large store.
Since tben 1 have risen to be partner with
my old emyloycr't son, and, Sandy, I am
worth ten thousnnd pounds! While 1
away I wanted to return and tee you, nnd
at length I could not bear to stay to long
irom you, so i came uere. 1 stayed around at
first to see it you wished my return, I saw
Klla and loved beraguii.; and when I found
that you led a hermit's lit hern, I sought
ber band and 1 vjs gained it. To-uiglit when
we met upon the shore, I thought 1 would
follow vou to your home and see how you
spent your time, and whether you thought of
ot me. I stayed there listening to your
grief for me; until I thought yon would go
mad. When yen rushed out, I followed, but
vou ran to fust I could not keep op; I
I strained every nerve, however, and reached
you just in time; and now, Sandy, you ask
me to forgive you 7 '
Sandy pleaded with his eyes.

that I am soon to be married, and then, San
dy, you shall coma and live with me, and 1

There are probably more than 00,000
white men in Tennessee who cannot vote.
The significance of this fact is heightened
by the general admission ot the blacks to
the exercise of the right of franchise. So,
between tbe wide exclusion of the whites
and the universal enfranchisement of the
blocks, Tennessee is a political Pandemoni
um; and, until the suffrage it to regulated that
all men who ars not excluded by the recon
struction acts of Congrne, are admitted to
tbe enjoyment of ail their political rights, we
shall have no bope of cordial and enduring
peace. It may as well be plaiuly stated here
as vaguely biuted at, that tbe llepubllcao
party of the North bat never, so fur at we
know, contemplated the permanency of any
arroiigemeut like that which now afilicts
Tennessee : that it bat never inteuded to Jus
tify iu eueniK'i iu tbefr accuiatiou that it
might tyrauuize over and oppress the whites;
and that if the Southern ilcpublicaiu,
black aud white, thiuk the tupport of the
North worth wiuning, tbey niml put their
legislation on tome other basis thua that of
sell-seeking and revenge, loe time lor on

considered themselves good Christians, as.
indeed, did the world generally. They gave

where their teat were seldom empty. They
did a great deal of good with their money,
yet in placing this fiery temptation before
young men, tome of whom were as yet with
out fixed principle, tbey committed a gross

Oue night several in the village where I was

There was good cheer, there were bright and

Correspondence of the Liberal Cbrittian.1
The Talgarltf of Load Talking and
I se in your excellent paper a tittle para
graph on good manners, in which spilling
and lounging are described as proof of .
semi-barbarous state of society, and must
beg leave lo note another peculiarity of onr '
social manner, equally Indicative of a low
stale of civilization. I allude to loud talking
and screeching laughter. This is so peculiar '
to Americans that they are .known by it la -Europe,
and, as well bred people, tbey never
tolerate it Even in the most social circles
11 it considered a mark of Hi-breeding be-,
longing only to tbe lowest class.
Aside from this conventional protest
against It there is a regul.; objection to It, iu
the Injury it does to tbe vocal organs
Talking through an evening, at the top of the
voice, it very painful and fatiguing, and ytt
the noise made by the whole company it so
great that no one can be beard who speaks
low, or In a natural tone. Jlany throats
are made core and many beads are made tu .
ache by this unnessary noise, and persons sub
ject to bronchitis are obliged to avoid it en
n all European society the voice ara
kept lower than usual in Urge parties, and '
a general hum prevails, in which every per
son it easily heard by those he addreate.
Tbe loudness of Americans is very marked,
and produces disgust and indignation when ,
It breaks the stillness of picture-galleries and
other public places, where nothing but whis
per are allowed. Wbea a loud voice la
beard from an American traveler, every one
it startled and looks round ' to tee whence It
comet, and tbe comment on this breach of
good manners are very severe.
I oace Introduced some very refined and
cultivated Americans to a gentleman in Lou
dou, who could have done much for their
amusement and procured their admission to
many private galleries of paintings and sculp
ture; but after one experience of their voci
ferating, in a public exhibition, he woald
not again expose himself to the pain aad the
shame they then caused him. Ha wrote to
me to excuse himself fur hot- baring done
more for my friends, by saying that their
loud talking made them not presentable In
refined society, and not bearable in publio
places. He added that he had made a dinner
party for them, of Americaus only, and
they laughed and talked to loud that ho
was afraid the police would come in and see
what tut row waa.
A Mournful Complaint from New Eng
land. From tbe Boston Commercial Bulletin. -In
no part of the country it industry at to
low an ebb, capital so nnremiiuerativa in it
investments, and their joint products so
poorly paid for, as her in New England at
the present time. The specialities of skilled
labor, which were once a source of wealth '
to th capitalist and profitable employment
to the people, are now a drug in the market,
sad refuse to go into consumption at any
price. Tbey ar relatively much cheaper
than tbe agricultural products of th West
and South, or tbe raw mineral products ot
the Middle State. Not only are our manu
factories closed, or running on tbort time,
and our mechanics and laboring men by
thousands thrown out of employment, but
our commercial classes! are suffering Im
mense losses from the stagnation of trade
and shrinkage iu merchandise value.
Tbe latter are obliged to "carry' not only
the products of New England commerce aud
industry, bnt also, to a great exteut, those of
every other section of th conutry. Hence,
upou their shoulders the depreciation in pri
ces principally falls. And the situation with
us is rendered tl ill more severe and trying
from the fact that our foreign commerce and
its dependent Interests continue in a de
pressed aud cripled Condiiiou. In foot lb
uobie race of ijiporting and shipping mer
chants, once the pride and boast of our New
England seiorts whose shiis ploughed tho
waters of e'ery sea, and poured into eur mar
kets the weul til of every cllmo, are now, alas,
falling Into comparative decay. Our mer
uhauiile mariue, swept from tbj ocean dur
ing Ihe late war, Involving a Ioji of millions
of dollars of capital not ' shared by any
other seclien of tbe country, tkowt no sigus
of recovery from Die blow.
Our shipyards all along the coast, once re
sonant wiiu the Ovely chorus of th aj aud 1
the bummer, are now silent aud solitary as
oar graveyards. Tbe Canadian Reciprocity
Treaty, which once brought a large and profi
table tredo to our seaboard market in
cluding cheap lumber for shlp-buildlng
has bVen abrogated, and raw products of
Canada and the Maratime Provinces, wliidi
were once tent here to excl.snge for our
West India goods and home maautociuros,
now pass by n to other market. Thif it it
faint picture of the Eastern situation, aud of
what New England bas been called to suffer
on Bwouut of Ihe war and iu sequences.
Tbe Lexington (Mist.) Advertiter proposes
the establishment of a spinning and carding
factory in that plae at a cost of 3 j00. It
hal is it lo be great folly to wait until J0,00o
or 9100,000 can be got to commence with,
and add:
"A factory (costing the insignificant
amount we have named) ran card all tho
wool in tbe county, mike Lowells aud do
mestics lo supply three times our population,
and witb a gin attached could pin all the
gleanings of Ihe great staple at a figure that,
would immediately tujrrsedt burse power.
