West Feliciana, Feb, 25th 187d.
.IIFor the sake of the dignity of the
Chief Magistracy of the Republie we are
anxious to believe that the President has
expressed himself as reported in an inter
view with Mr. Ellis. ie cannot, disown too
soon or too emphatically the threats of a
change of policy towards the southIt that
have been imputed to him by tuembers
of his Cahinet and others who are sup
posed to possess his colnfidence. That
policy is defensible only on the broad
groulad ofconstittutionial duty, anid if it
wva duty under the Constitution to with
draw the troops frtomt Louisiana no ;rial
or co.nviction foir felony tunder the laws
of Louisiatta and noli charge of political
faith on the p:tart of the peoplle of that
tate. almittbig that there has been such
a change aof ith, call justify the rever
sal of that policy . Furthermore, any
understanding between the President,
or the friends of the President, a.d Gov
ernor Nichols, or the Iriends of Governor
Nichols that contentpla ed iltnnuity ftr
cline, was little short of colmpoundling
felonies. Does sir. Garfield eallnltl to say
that there was inly sulch agreement f Atnd

HUiwloy to say fl-Philadelphia Times.
UNIVERSIITY ov VA., Feb, 25, 1878.
Thinking a description of the -Iuseumi
f the University of Virginia, and other
points of interest connected with this
Institution might not prove unaccepta
ble to the renders of your valuable papei,
your correspondent senils the following:
Inl the year 1874 or '75 a gentleman of
the city of Rochester, N. Y., whose name
was unknown, doeloted to the University
the sum of $70,000, for the purpose of es
talTishing a 4Museunm of Natural History.
When the building was comnpleted, how
ever, it'was found that the above sum
wonlucl'o~ldto~ritq.fr.its fitting up, so he
gave ,$30,000 more An instanceofchari
ty so dlisinterestedl has never been equal
ed in the history of this country. Here was
a mal, a northerner by tuirth, who had
never been in Vi ginia ; who actuated
simply by his admiration for Jeflerson,
and the great domocratio principles of
which he was the exponent, gave to the
handsome gift mentioned above, for the
promotion of a science, which had af
forded him so much pleasure in the eve
ning of his life. Death only revealed
his name-Lewis Brooks. Hie died a few
short months ago, leaving to the people
of the south, and especially to Virginia,
a name to be cherished forever; to pos
terity a shinlng exanip!d w'.ll vworthy of
imitation. As the resolutions of the fec
ulty upon hearing of his death so clo
quec tly express it, "He has taught
holesonie lessons to our enti.e country
to the south that virtue and benificence
hbloom in bleaker climes with unsurpass
edivigor and luxuriance-to the north
that the beost reconstruction is wrought
by the silent ministry of christian chari
ty and love." The museum is an imnpos
ing edifice built of granite, on the By
zantilne style of architecture. On enter
ing, tile visito- is at (nce struck by the
sight oIf':Il eiinoroul'l s elephant. There lie
stands, " grand glooam and peculiar," the
prototype of his great Siberian ancestor.
This IImonster lived beforeo the flood, anod
his irenliiis were discovercd ill rather "i
cur'ious Iman' er. Onte d:v an inhabitant
of Silbria was traveling iacross the couin
try inl his sleigh drawn by dogs. his
course was sulddenly checked, by what
liappeared to lihe-. imouitaini of sn(ow; and
upon exmlnamillatioii, it was found to con
tainl the perfect forimll of an iulmnenlse ani
i-.al. IBy great troiillie :inll expeIO litnre,
it was taikeni froln tlhe s-oiw, divested of
its skin, an:d the same duly stiuffedl was
salely deposited ini the litiish lUiSeinnimu
bly the English governluent, fromi which
a cast lwas adetl fir this place.
On the silue flhir with the elephant,
is a valuable collectioni of rocks, and
specimens of liilva f:nill Mt Vesuvius.
There is also to le, see, imlitations of the
muore celelrated ilialiondis-plarticularly
those, of the crowlnedl head of Enilu1i-1e.
Also facsimile imlitations of the lar gtst
gold nuggets, and Cllurios meteoric at ilies
tolgerher with the date of their fall, and
the pl plhe where they fell.
Oin the second floor you tillnd a collect
tion of stllfid anilials, birds, reptiles and
fishles, hardly smilrpassed vven by the
Smlithsonian Institute. Fromii the little
mollnlkeys that sport through the woods
of Brazil, to the fierce lions of Seniegalm
bia ; fro'u the domestic cats aunid rieniilly
dog, to the sly fox a llid treacherous pan
ther; from the black bears that ilutest
the Rocky mountains, to the tigers that
roami through the jungles of India ; fromi
the little fish that throng o111- tllllllutilin
streams, to the great loviathanls of the
miighty deep. If spae, andl timne permit
ted, we might go on iiidefinitely telling
you about our musenum, of which we are
so justly proud ; 'iut we will leave it
here, to say a few words concernilng
something else which interests us very
much. Mr. McCormick. a native of Vir
ginlia, but who has been living for some
time in Chicago, offered to make his
Srtate a priesent of a large teleicope, pro.
vided $30,1.00 could lie raised to build an
oliservatory to receive the samle. For
somletime he was undecidled us to where
lihe should place :t. lie wainted to give it

GOV. HENDRICKS ON THE RETURN
ING BOARD TRIALS.
Indianapolis, Feb. 20.-In the conven
tion Gov. Hendricks, in his speech, said:
One of the Louisiana criminals has beenm
tried -snd convicted. The Presidenm aind
John Sherman say he should not have
been tried. Wlny not t His guilt and
that of others is shown by the verdict.
It is a high crime against the nation,
and threatening the stability of free in
stitutions. What are the relations be
tweeen the President and Mr. bhermnan.
and the accused, that authorize or per
mit an effort on their part to influence
the udicial proceedings in a State Court.
After a long and terrible contest it is set
tled that the state election of State
Legislaturea must lie free from military
influence and control. So it must ie
understood that the President and his
Ca-!,inet cannot directly or indirectly in
terfere with the judical proceedings un
der State authority.
State courts must be wholly free and
ildepemdent of Federal control, except
where the consti'ntion.and laws give to
the Federal judiciary an appellate su
pervision. It is to be regretted that the
acts developed on the trial are of such a
character as to create an anxiety onil the
part of the President' anm amny of his Cab
ilnet, but they cannot avoid the efliet
upon thie public mind of an exhibition of
that anxicty, and of tile umnsenming de
nnmciation of the State authorities.
lWhilst it is true that the title of Mr.
Hayes to the office of President atcd aMr.
11 heeler to the olice of Vice President
ihas been settled under tile solemnl forms
if law, and whilst it is our duty, in my
judgment, to recognize the title becaulse
it is the interest of the public stability
:and tranquility to do so, it is still none
tihe less true that an imperative duty de
miands that fitting pumnishmuent should he
visited unpon thie public crimin.ials in tihe
South through whose crime that -judg
meat was oitalitied.
Because the judgment is filnal :and con
clmsives fourims no realson w'hy inunil ity
sl.onld be seculred to the criminal throngh
whose p':rjury it was obtained. If this
is true tofa simple property j udgment,
rendercd in a coulrt of law. muchli more is
truay of thle monstrous crime a~a.nst, the
elective soveriguty of the nation.
The very fact that it was successful
furnishes thle strongest reasons why time
condign punishmlent of its perpetrators
should cover it with perpetual infamy,
and manifest to all future conspirators
against the liberties of the nation the
danger of attempting its repetition.
G" WLile the President of the United
States is not exciting himself to any
great extent to enforce civil service re
form, he is doing all that ought to lie
expected of any one President inl the
good cause of helplirg along church fairs
ill Maryland. Inl this palrt.icular he is
developing a talent for usefulnees which
i' was little sulslpected he possessed,
probably, when he w.as a candidate for
the high position wihch lie occupies. lie
never once referred to this sort of thing
in his admirable letter of accep*ance, in
which the people got so many valuable
suggestions andl quite a profulsion of
promises, ahbout civil service reform ; buit
these are days of surprises, anid we onght
to expect such things. There are s\eveIr.
al good results attending the presence ol
Mr. l1ayes at the chlutch fairs; he doublt.
less exercises a good imoral influence on
the sale of cheap articles at extravagant
prices ; he advertises tile concern as only
a President co;ld ; lie picks out. the nmost
effective hymns to be suing, and no doubt
huys a chance ill every green and red
pin-cushion set iup to lie raltlied off. The
church tf.ir has also ibrought out the im
portant fact, which the country has long
wanted to know, that the Presidetut can
shakie handls with exactly one tmhousaund
two hImnldreTl i.nd thirty- e'ighlt of his f'l
low-citizeons, in forty-live mlinutes. T'his
we believe, is thie first Inst:ancu e ol rec

S1IlOCKING SCENE IN AN INDIANA
[ Cincinnati Cammercial.1
l:ieihmondl, Ind., Feb. 12.- itv Mar
shal low. -hafter, just returned frout
Kunibhtstown. repo'rts that himself. Park
l':agu', froln Riclino: d, and officer Kehoe,
of Illndianlusolis, and Harry Hayntes. or
Kuightstown, took Harry Foxwell, the
Knightstown saloon keeper arrested on
suspicion of being the murlerer of John
W. White, to Carthage to-day, and
arrived at the church just as the funer
al services orer thue murdered man were
completed. r'hey took the prisoner into
the church to look at the corpse. He
evinced such agitation thutt the murder
ed luau's sister screamed in affright. Ii.
stantly the crowd in the church made a
rush upon the prisoner, whom they tried
to force froml the officer. Revolvers were
drawn, the wolmlen screatleu, and the
preacher leaped ulpon a chair and exhort
ed the crowd to keep the peace, and only
owing to his inflnueue were the olfflers
able to remove Foxwell from the church.
Upon the street the mlob of several
hundred made another rush upon the ofti
cers, demandingilt the prisoner, and crying.
'Shoot the murderer !' - Hang him !'
'Stone him to death !' and such like ex
pressions. The otticers forced their way
through the crowd with their revolvers
took the prisoner to a justice's office, pri
vately secured a hack, drove rapidly
from town and took the prisoner to Rush
ville, across the country nearly twenty
miles. Arriving there, they were met by
Ia large crowd, but had no difficulty in
klcking up the prisoner in jail,
Foxwell is a Baltimore rough, and
bears a reputatian. He swore that the
tramp arrested here on "onday had split
wood for hitm on last Friday, and that on
Monday he returned to his saloon, show
ed great agitation,al'd confessed to the
clime. He had on the murdered man's
overcoat, and had other stolen property
upon his person. The facts are, the
tramp at the time was a erisoner here,
charged wiih vagrancy.
Footprints at the scene of the murder
tit the boots .urn -by Foxwell, who says
he can prove that ho was at the saloon at.
the time of the murder. This is is denied
by witnesses, who swear he was not at
the saloon until 10 o'clock that night.
It is the general belief that Foxwell is
guilty, and lie would have been lynched
tod'tv but for the firmness of the ofticers
ant a fiew law-abiding citizens who an
ticipated an effort would be made to
lynch the prisontr.
[-T!e Louisiana dte.egation is at lhed

something for Packard, ot course, and it
is rather notable that Packard wan's
something for hiimslf, too. He wants

very atrocious charges.-Philadelphia,
