What the Radical party most fears is the frt'o, nntrammeled ballot of the peo ple, lliey prefer the bayonet. Has Grant Under Ills Thnmb. Gov. Geary, of Pennsylvania, 6ys Senator Cameron, the most corrupt poli tician of tho time's, has Grant under his thumb. ; , A Want. lho l'lulaiMslphu 1 snys an ex change wants tho gambling houses of that tuul all other cities broken up. Neither IIouso of Congress is included. Now it Xakefl no Difference. ' Tho Radical New York Times snys when the Democrats were in power "it damaged a man's character to be sus pected of selling his vote. Now it makes no difference." A Cowardly Party. According to the declaration of Mr. Famswortb, Radical member of the House of Representatives in Congress, from Illinois, tho radical party is tifrnid or too cowardly to bring before tho Su preme Court many laws w hich have been passed by that party in Congress. . -4 Removal of Gen. Fry. It is charged in Wushiugtou that tho removal of Gen. Fry from the position of Supervisor of Kentucky, was brought about by Col. Win. 15. Stokes, of this State. Tho Kentucky Radicals are very much inceused at tho removal and are protesting against it. $84,994,000, in Taxes. Hie JNow I oi k Inlmno announces that the government wmng from tho people $84,994000 in taxes, in 1870, in excess of the amounts paid in 18(18 and 18(!i) ; and yet the Radicals are boasting of the manner in which they have re duced taxation. Outrage Against the Israelites. From Vienna and London comes intel ligence of outrugo against tho Israelites in the East We fear that the Russo Greek Church needs a littlo more of the spirit of Christian tolerance, with a nioro careful and constant tenching from the word of tho Sermon on the Mount Beats Fiddling. A music teacher once wroto that "the art of playing the violin requires the nicest perception and tho most sense of any art in the known world." Where upon u Western editor comments thus : "Tho art of publishing a newspaper and making it pay, und at the same time ma king it please everybody, beats fiddlin' higher than a kite." Beats Greeley all Hollow. Tho Now York Star exposes all pro fane porsous connected with tho New York Press. Of Sam Glenn, the Her ald's "religious editor," it says : "Sam Glenn is one of the best knon men in the profession. Sum's forte is strength, and if our pious readers would liko to know where his strength mainly lies, we adviso them to give him a call some Sat urday morning when the 'religious ex changes are misplaced. Ho beats Gree ley all hollow. --4 Woman's flights. The cpie"! : of "woman's rights" is to be test; 1 in th courts of Connecticut M';s-i Watrous Mather and Miss Smith, of Eiu,t IhuHam, with eightucu other women, applied to bo mode voters, fcnt they wero refused. Notwithstanding the refusal, the two mentioned tried to vote at the lute election in that State, and, their votes being refused, they will appeal to tho courts, and claim tho right under the fifteenth amendment Miss Mather is a Republican and Miss Smith a Democrat. , A False Assertion. The Tniou and American says that the New York Tribune makes the asser tion, that "Georgia and Louisiana were carried for Seymour and Blair in 18G8, by general notice given to the blacks, wherever the Democrats wero strong en ough to enforce their threats, 'If you dare go to the polls and there present Republican ballots, you shall not go homo alive !' " Tho Tribune used to bo a tolerably fair paper, but it fs becoming very rccklefesfof late. It surely does not expect any man with tho brains o a goose to believe such a presentation as this. Geeso ere geese, and a goose is a goose. See the pint The Ku-KluxWar. The Ku-Klux war upon the South, is still boiug vigorously pressed in and. out of Congress by the friends of the admin istration. While this is going on, Radi calism ignores the Ku-Klux operation, which was performed on three of the cadets at Wost Point a few moaths ago. Tho outrage was. of such enormity that the House of Iiepreflen ta tires felt com pelled to notice it An investigation was had and the House ordered that the Secretary ol War should have the guilty parties tried by courtmartkL This, how ever, has not been done. "No steps have been taken leading to that result That Ku-Klux outrage still goes, unpunished. The guilty parties are known and one of them is the son of President Grant If tho whole South is to be punished for the injury done to negroes by a few dis guised outlaws, does not even-handed justice demand that the son of the Presi dent of the United States should be pun ished for aiding and abetting in the Ku kluxing of three white jwmg men ? MY FRIEND. The following touching poem was written in the prison desd-house at Cump Chase, by Col. W. is. If. A fellow pris oner was engaged to a beautiful lady she proved fuithless, and her letter came, breaking the troth. Soon after he died, and this was Col. H.'s reply : Your letter come, but Ciimo too luto, For Heaven had claimed its own ; Ah! sudden change, from prison bars Unto the Great White Throno 1 And yet I think ho would have st.iycd For one more day of pain, Could he havt read thoue tardy words Which you huvo sent in vain. Why did yoli wait, fait lady, Through so many a Hcary hour ? Had you other lovers with you In that silken, dninV bower? Did others bow bcfi';.our charms, And tvii.'.o brk'ht gurlattds there? And yet I w en in nil that throng II in spirit nad no peer. I wish that you were by me now, An 1 draw tho sheet aside, To see how pure the look ho woro Awhile before he died. Yet the sorrow that you gave him btill hail left its weary trace, nd a meek and saintly sadness ' Dwells upon his pallid face. . "Her love," ho said, "could change formo The winter's cold to spring :" h, trust of thoughtless maiden's love, luou art a bitter thing ! For when these valleys fair, in May, Uuce more with bloom shall wave, The Northern violets shall blow Above his humble grave. Your dole of scanty words had boon JJut one more pang to bear ; Though, to the last, he kissed with love, Ihis tress of your solt hair. I did not put it telure he mid, i or, when the angels come. I would not have them find the sign UI falsehood in the tomb, I've read tho letter, and I know The wiles that you have wrought To win that noble hoart of his, And gained it fearful thought ! What lavish woalth men sometimes give For a trifle, light and small! What manly forms are ofton held In Folly's flimsy thrall 1 You shall not pity him, for now He's past your hope and fenr ; Although I wish that you could stand With me beside his bier. Still, I forgive you ; Heaven knows For mercy you'll have need, Since God his awful judgment sends On each unworthy deed. To-night the cold wits whistle by, As I my vigils keep Within the prison doad-house, where Few mourners come to weep. A rude plank coffin holds him now, Yet Death gives always graco ; And I would rather see him thus Than clasped in your embrace. To-night, your rooms arc very gay, With wit, and wine, aud song ; And you nre smiling, just as if You never did a wrung. Your hand no fair, that none would thiuk It penned these words of pain ; Your skin, so white, would God, your soul Were half so freo of stain ! I'd rather be this dear, dear friend, Than you in all your gleo ; For you are held in grievous bonds, While he's forever free. Whole serve wo in this life, we serve Iu that which is to come, He chose his way ; you, your's ; lot God Pronounce thu fitting doom. "Tiio Kooters." One of our exchanges says tho word lJail'.ei'J," ic. deriu'd from the Latin "Radix," M liii ii menus root The Radi cal., are therefore "Hooters." Their na ture) has uu element of swinishness for swine are ! ora tj root. Indeed, the first real Jkliwil, the fu-it Rooter, be longed to the genus Bwine. To tiiut fh'.t Rooter can be traced the lolly v.n cootry if our modern Radicals. ' They should bo proud of tho pedigree. They are bora with tho grand propensity to root, they must root, they cannot help but root. It is the law of their being. Rooters were very objeetionablo to the Jews of old. Moses, who was doubtless a Democrat, forbade his people to have any thing to do. with the anciont four footed Radicals. Ho called them foul, unclean beasts. It is also a notable fact, that once on a time some demons, when driven out of a man, begged permission to enter some bristling Rooters who hap pened to be rooting near by. There must bo something in tho Rooters very attractive to evil spirits. It would be a curious chapter to trace the history of Rooters from the original Radicals of the beast kind to the latest modern develop ment. Well ; all over the land these Radicals are rooting rooting up the soil of the republic, rooting out the old, time-honored principles, rooting np law, right and justice, rooting out all that is good, root ing deeper and deeper around the foun dations of government until the fair fab ric of freedom seems ready to fall. O, for the clay when these Rooters shall themselves be rooted out of this fair land !' lion. George II. Pendleton, Declined. The Washington Patriot gays : "We learn that Hon. Geo. H. Pendleton has finally declined to permit his name to, be used as a candidate for Governor teforo the approaching Democratic Convention in Ohio. - This decision has been reach ed after much deliberation, and is under stood to have been made for reasons wholly personal The -impression now seems to obtain, that Gen. Goorge W. McPook, well known as an able and faith ful advocatepf Democratic principles, will receive the nomination." The Cincinnati Enquirer, supports Gen. HuCook. ' . For You Sir And You ! "Times are getting worse every day." What then, my dear sir? Will it do any good to draw youf face up into ten thousand wrinVles, and vent the bitter ness of your spirit upon all with ,whoin you come in contact on the strength of tlio abovo mentioned fact 7 Suppose yort had to walk barefoot over a road thickly strewn with thorns and sharp, flinty stones. What would you do ? Go asido out of Jour way to tread on evry stray thorn and pebble instead of carefully avoiding every needless hurt l picking your way warily throu: them? Which course will you choose now ? " Will you snap your wife at the break fast table hen sho asks you for "a littlo change?" Will you suggest to her tho probability of your all going to ruin in a short tune through thu prodigid outlays mailo for household needs, and theu tlirow tho money across the table at her as you would throw a bone to a dog ? You k low very well that her demand is perfectly reasonublu ; and you know, too, that you would be jiint us much offended a;- you rrj now. il sue uul not ask vou for money for household expensejjvhen it is needed ; but you aro not willing "to miss the opportunity of selfishly venting your unpleasant feelings on this conve nient domestic scapegoat. And if sho should (wouderfiu to think of) pluck up courago enough to ask you for money to buy a new dress though it may be only six months since she last committed this mortal sin don't ask her ironically if she thinks a thousand dollars will do her this time ; or make some cut ting remark about her ruinous extrava gance aud tho slave-life that you lead but if you can afford it, give her the ruon ey and a kiss into tho bargain. But if you really feel too poor to indulge your sell m the pleasure of seeing your wife in a new dress for tho lirst time in six months, give her a kiss anyhow, aud ex plain tho matter kindly to her, and the kiss aud tho kind explanation will go nearly all tho way towards making her forget the disappointment Ami, above all, don t bring your busv ucss home at night with you. Don't sit in solitary misanthropy, or snarl and poto rue nre. lour who wish c nau a chance to talk to you all day. Sho has a thousand little things to communicate but while you sit there so cold and repel hint, she has no courago to begin. Your children are eager for a game of romp, but they are "afraid of papa when he looks as ho looks to-night ; so they congregate in a half-awed maimer in the corner until it is time to go to bed. No pleasant chat, no merry laughter, no game at romps, no music nothing but gloom aud constraint, because "father has come home iu a bad humor." You ungrateful man ! You inhuman iceberg, to behave so in the bosom of your family ! To turn away from the pleasures and privileges still left yon, be cause you can't have every thing just as you want it! J,hmk of the loving, cling ing hearts that your coldness shadows of tho bright f;iee over which your frown has cast a reflected gloom. Aru't you Jiained of yourself ? Again ; your burdens may ho so heavy that you cannot smile. But oh ! bo kind. Because your own soul is dark, don't pierce another heart with a needless wound by your coldness and Rullenness. Because there are some thorns in your way, don't plant oilier thorns in the path of another with your own hand. If you ciin not be cheerful, bo kind. Woman's Love. A virtuous woman is the very embod iment aud pcrsouificution of love. The true beginning and end of all that is pure and worthy of womanhood, is love. Love may lie made to constitute all wo man's happiness ; but if the heavenly passi-m be perverted, it proves tho source of all her sorrows. Very beautiful in deed is principal of love iu woman ; it constitutes a roseate atmosphere "in which she lives, and moves, and has her being" and it forms a halo of celcstian pnrily lo .iurround her. Its light shines in tue gla:i.:i of her eye.s beams in the smilo upon her lips and makes tho mu sic of her softest tones ; for the melody of a woman's voice is but a prolonged echo of tho spirit of love. It is impossi ble to think of the beneficent yet' unob trusive influence of a virtuous woman, without experiencing a sense of most exaltod admiration. Behold her as tho obedient daughter how much sho will endure, through what trials sho will pass, aud how goading must become the parental tyranny ero sho will allow her spirit to rebel against the authors of her being ! Behold her when loving some object worthy her devotion mark her unvarying constancy the resolution uniting with tenderness in tho natura of her affection tho tonacity with which she clings to him whom she knows to be deserving of her love ! Again, behold her as the wife joahxtsly welcoming her husband home feeding her spirit with the memory of his looks and smiles whin he is absent and with all tho sublimest elements of an ever enduring constancy and faith appealing to his soul I And, lastly, contemplate her as the mother, pressing her own born-babe to her bo som studying to trace in its littlo coun tenance the lineaments of its sire and fondly making imagination continue the work in this rospect beyond the point where verismilitude has stopped. Yes ; woman, when imbued with a pure and virtuous love, is an angel-creature ; and well may poets strike their lyres to sing her praise well might the warriors of old have dared deeds- of high eniprize for the meed of her smile well may the student trim his lamp to write essays upon her manifold good qualities ! All these tributes and all this homage does she deserve.. Iast at the eoe and ear liest at tho grore at bnr Savior, she tea ches to the sincere christian some of the sweetest and roost honest morals of his faith ; and thus is the name of woman hallowed by religion likewise as well as sanctified by love. "You Pay Yonr Money and you Take Your Choice." The following note appeared in the Memphis Appeal a few weeks ago : New Yohk, April 3, 1871. Inasmuch as I advanced the sum of $1,250, from my own personal means, to pay for the "large life sizo portrait" of W. G. Brown- low, of Tennessee, now on exhibition in tho State Capitol, at Nashville ; and, whereas, many representative men of the Radical party promised to help foot this bill, and nave utterly failed to contribute u single dollar toward it I now offer the said portrait for sale. Persons who wish to make an offer for tho same, will ad dress mo as below. All correspondence conlideutiallv treated- if desired. "Pa triotism" of this kind has played out with me. It does not support one's lamily, unless he holds a public office. Most respectfully, Geo. R. Rctter, Postoilico box 3,832. Mr. Minor Meriwether, "being a great mtmu-er of tue great Union-saver, offers Mr. Ruttcr twelve and one-half cents for tho portrait Rutter confesses that this is the most liberal among the numerous offers ho has received, but in a note to the Appeal, dated tho 12th instant, he says : "A question of delivery has arisen which may involve delay. Some time since I wrote tho heads of the State De partment at Nashville, accompanied by an order on them, to turn this piece of nrt over to an auction and commission house, instructing them to dispose of it and remit tho proceeds to nie. Tho Li brarian, Mr. W. H. Wharton, at Nash villo, refuses to turn over. Having been swindled out of all the money I had by theso Radical jackals and political vul tures, I should be obliged to some Mem phis lawyer if ho would suggest some cour se by which tho Librarian could be made to deliver." The Union and American says, Rutter paid his money for this portraits or rather Lepaid it out of the "school fund," which really belonged to the Bank of Tennessee or the people of the State aud although he claims that ho has never been reimbursed, as promised he should be by the Radical leaders who were hist before this contribution was made to the art gallery in the capitol, manipulating tho "school fund" so as to get their fin gers upon it, it appears ho is not to be allowed his choice iu regard to tho dis posal of tho portrait It was probably the remembrance of this portrait that induced Browulow to say in calling the attention of tho Legislature to the di rection tho "school fund" had takon. that "he intended no reflection nnon the bank," of which Rutter was President, and subsequently in a letter to Rutter himself, that "he did not blame him, as ho (Rutter) had done what any Banker wouiu nave done. A String of 'Em. Whom did Adam mam, and when cnu no marry her ? Ouo Evo. hat was her bridal dress? Rarelv nothing. Not even a ribbon? No, she had no need of one sho was a rib-bone herself. U hen Adam and Eve were in the car- deuing business, at what time did they commence picking apples ? In the Fall. What was the first step they took in the sugar business ? Raising Cane. Why did not Cain make good sumir? Because ho wasn't Abel. Spirit, as well as sugar, comes from cane ; what evil resulted from this Cain's spirit? Abel got slewed. V hat reason have we to suppose that Cain also got slewed? He went imme diately to tho land of Nod. Who was tho wisest man ? Knower. What did he know ? Ho knew enough to go in out of the rain. Why is the letter G like death? It makes ghosts of hosts and is always in the midst of slaughter. Soothing Epistle. The recipient of the following sooth ing epistle froin his eloping spouse, con fidently appeals to a sympathisinc nub- lic for commiseration in his bereavement: "Deah Hudcy : You're, slaved out I liko Dr so well that I nreLr minir with himyou good-for-nothinsr. degen erated CUSH. It's none of VOlir bllKineaa where we've gone to. It won't do yon a bit of good for you to follow us, for I wouldn't live nnother day with you to savo your life. You made a mistake in thinking I loved you. I never did. I married you for convenience sake. I tako the baby along, and 111 take core of it You can sue for a divorce, get married as soon as you please. The wo man who gets you next will have a heal thy old prize. Good-byo. Be virtuous and you'll be happy. Youn Late Wife. The Author of the Income Tax. A largo number of the Nothern Radi cals havo been very much put out be cause Congress did not repeal the income tax, and in then-desperation they charge Senator Sherman with, being the author of the tax ; but it has. a high piternity. It owes its existeae to thut "great statesman," TJlyssc S. Grant When tho old war tax expired, it was he who said, "I also suggest the renewal of the tax on incomes, but at a reduced rate of three per cent" Message of December lSfaO.J Through this brilliant sugges tion it was enacted, and now barely sus tains the army of officials employed to collect it, and yields nothing to tho pub he treasury. A little four-year-old remarked to her mamma on going to bed, 'Tia not afraid 4rthe dart,"" "No, oieowso tou are not."- replied her nMmma, "for it can't hurt yon." wJjiit, mamma, I was & little afraid ece, when I went into the pantry to get a cookie." "What were you afraid of?" asked her mamma. "I was afraid I couldn't find the cook ies. The Country Cousin. Tbe Nw Ywk Suudard baa an artiel descriptive of "Tbe Country Coomb," which without being a perfect likeness, i certainly not a caricature. We copy, a follows : Adam and Eve were the original conn try cousins brought forth by this planet, and an inquisitive and prying spirit aim. ilur to their ha alway found it favorite home among potatoe and coro-IahJ. These oredulou and carious abrlaa relative of ours seem to hare garnered immense storiei of inquisitiveneasfrom the very nature of their rural occupation. W hile eating their bread in the sweat of thir face, tbej have apparently had abundant opportunity for (peculating about the tree of knowledge of good and evil, and for wondoriug whether the va rioty of applo which it produce i palaU able. The external apct and tbe internal idiosyncrasies of the country cousin are notuufamiliir to the oynio mttropolitaa t but tbey are never altogether without in. terest fur him. He i recomiiahl. .t glance at the theater, in ehareb, on the street, in the tnge, wandering through the public institution in short, wherever he may feel inclined to out hi t. dust from his native turnpike is on his hoels, and the green stain of his inexotio meadows clings to bis uppers. An ingen nous wondor, that there is no mistake in marks his countenance as ha an,W and down the strange-peopled streets, snd an artless amasement bints at tbe ragged Eden he has left behind him. lie usually shows a lamentable aptitude for rushing headlong into places of proletarian amuse ment, where his more refined metropolitan cousins know under what circumstances to exclude themselves. Keto lays its hand upon him, and the basement concert saloon marks him for its own. The gift enter prise swindle possessive swindle possesses for him a charm which hi modioum of moral courage does not permit him tn siat, aud in innumerable cases the mock auction lays him prostrate. But our country cousin, in displaying a weakness which our metropolitan expe rience enables us to adroitly conceal, still puts forth indubitable claims to our m. spect. Who can drive a bargain or olinoli a contract with more astuteness than he? n hat feeble and undermined offspring of the oity can hope to make a more in- ous and convincing application f the anoc-K-aowo argoment when nocessaryt Brawn has logic of its own, as well as brain, and when the conntr cousin i.,.n. ecives that he is being got the best of, hie broad shoulders and athletic arms are very ' apt to supply the place of reasoning pow ers, which, without being very artful in thsir mode of work, may yet be able to see their way clearly to a conclusion. Our gentle rural kiudred have generally fair business habits, aud it is only when un an familiar mode of pleasure takes advantage of their passions and their inexperience that tbey go very widely astray. Stick to One Thlmr. "t nstnblo as water, thou shalt not ex cel, is tho language of the Bible. Who ever expects to succeed in any underta king must enter into it with a hearty and earnest will to do his best When trade or profession is chosen, obstacles, be they large or small, must not be al lowed to stand in the way of mastering that trade or profession. However much we may deprecate the old-time custom of indenturing apprentices, the system, in its practical result, operated almost always for the lasting good of tha apprentice. Generally it insured to bin a good trade and a wholesome discip line, fitting him for success in business. At the present time very many young men undertake to acquire a trade, and after a brief trial abandon it, because there are unpleasant duties to be per formed and obstacles to be overcome-. They consider themselves accountable to no one, and go and come at the biddings of caprice, or on unsettled, uneasy mind. The result of this is to send out into the world young men who hare not half learned their trades, of unstable charac ter, who drift from post to pillar, and who succeed in nothing but strewing along the highways of life melancholy wrecks of men. We earnestly entreat every young man, after he has chosen bis vocation, to stiek to it ; don't leave it because hard blows are to be struck or disagreeable work to bo performed. The aoen who have worked their way np to wealth and use fulness do not belong to the shiftless and unstable class, but may be reckoned among those who took off their coats, rolled p their sleeves, conquered their prejudices against Uber, and manfully bore the heat and burden of the inj. Whether upon the old worn out farm where our fathers toiled, diligently stri ving to bring back the soil to produc tiveness, in the machine shop or factory, or thousand other business places that invite honest toil and akilL let our motto, ever be : Perseverance and industry. The training oi. the nursery was gwd m its place, but it. won't answer all tbe de mands in active life.
