THE SAINTS' FAILURE.
n With all the desire in the world -
V to make out a case against Gov.
T. MeEnery, the Saints have, so far,
d raised only two special objections.
" One is the third term cry, and the
other, personal government. Both
objections have been disposed of
a long ago, and not to the discredit of
Gov. McEnery. The personal
e government charge has been shown
to be not well founded, as there
are numerous instances where he
has appointed men who have been
opposed to him; and the third
d term objection will not bear invest
g igation, as he has only been elected
. Governor once. Even if he had
s been elected twice that would be
- no objection. With a few excep
d tions tho papers generally admit
he has made a good Governor. r
The State is prosperous, levees
- have been built, to a greater extent
. than ever before, and this season t
d will witness a remarkable lot ofl !
a levee work being done. It is well a
e to know when you are well off, and l,
e when you have a good thing in the a
, way of a levee system,and you can't 'j
* do better than to keep it. Goy !.
McEnery's record on the levee I
question, should, alone, be sufli- A
cient to insure his renomination, ti
and it looks pretty clear that it Ia
will insure it. an
New "Uaie" Came to be Written.
It4 wes Bi Saturday night in 0
SNew York, that Dan Bryant came
to Emmctt and said: "Dan can't
you 'et us up a walk-around? I
. want something new and lively for
Monday night." At that d(late all
minstrel shows used to wind up
with a walk-around. The deimand
for them was constant, and Emmett
.was the comiposer of all of them for
U Bryant's Minstrels. Emmett of
cour.e went to work, but he had
done so much in that line that
nothing at first presented itself that
he liked. At last he hit upon the
' rst two bhars, and any eo:nposer
can tell how good a start that is in
the manufacture of a tune. ByDv
SSunday afternoon he had the words,
commencing "I wish I was in
Dixie."
This colloquial expression is not,
as most peoplle suppose, a Southern
Sphrase, but first apl)eared among
Dthe circus men in the North. In
early fall, when nipping frosts
would overtake the tented wander
ers, the boys would think of the
Sgenial warmth of the sections they
were heading for, and the common
expression would be : "Well, I
wish I was in Dixie." This gave
the catch line; the rest of the song
was original. On Monday morning
the song was rehearsed and highly
commended, and at night a crowd
ed house came to hear the refrain,
and half of the auditors went home
singing "Dixie." The song be
came the rage, and Newcomb's,
the Buckleys' and other minstrel
parties gave Emmett 85 for the
privilege of using it. Mr. Werlein,
r of .New Orleans, wrote to Emmett
to secure the copyright, but, with
r out waiting for an answer, lpublish.
Sed it, with words by a Mr. Peters.
Pond, of New York. secured it
from Emmett, and gave him 8600,
but Werlein sold thousands of
copies without giving Dan a nickel.
Not only was Emmett robbed of
the profits of his song, but the au
thorship of it was disputed. Will
S. Hays, of Louisville, claimed it
as his own. He told the writer of
these lines that hlie wrote it at the
breaking out of the war, but he
was talking to the wrong man that
day, and I told him so. Pon
brought the matter before a music
publisher's convention and settled
the question of authorship, but
Dan reaped no benefit from this
tardy justice. Emmett got into
trouble about his song during the
war. It was considered a rebel
song, and a sapient editor in Maine
declared that Dan was a Secession
ist, and he should be treated as
one, although the song was written
two years before the commence
ment of the rebellion.-[Prof. Kane
in Baltimore American.
