THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 8. 1872. Johuuj's Opinion of Grand Mothers. Uiamluioihers are very nice folks f They beat all aunts iu creution, They let a cut p do as he likes, And don't worry about education. I'm sure 1 can't see it at all, What a poor Ullow ever could do, For apples, and penuies, aud cakes, Without a grandmother or two. m Grandmothers speak softly to "ma's" To let a boy have a good time ; Sometimes they will whisper, 'tis true, T'other way, when a hoy wants to climb. Grandmothers have muffins for tea, Aud pies, a whole row, in the roller, And they're opt (it they know it is time) To make chicken pies for "teller." . And if he is bad, now and then, And makes a great racketing noise, They only look over their specs, And say, "Ah, these boys will be boys. "Life is ouly so short at best ; Let the children be bapry to day." Then they look fer a while at the sky, And the hills that are far, far away. Quito often, as twilight comes on. Grand mot hers sing hymns, very low, To themselves, as they rock by the fire, About heaven, and when they shall go. And then, a boy stopping toshinl, Will End a hot tear in his eye, To knew what will come at the last ; For grandmothers all have to die. I wish they could uny here and pray, For a buy ueeds ( lie it- prayers ev'ry niht; Soiso boys more than otn rs, 1 s'jo. e ; Such as i need u wonderful sic,ht. Heavy loirtptiou lui.d.

Corbin. who, in the capacity of United Stales District Attorney, conducted the prosecutions in the Ku k ax trials in South Carolina, a few days ago opi uly admitted that the political state of affairs certainly was an excuse for the creation of the Ku-klux organization for no people under the sun, with any degree of self respect, would quietly submit to the existing abuses; but he alleged that the organi zation ra'ado a mistake in wreaking its vengeance upon simple-minded negroes instead of punishing the authors of their mlo.ra in ..1.mrVtl A MJWVJJI us uvuuuus. Andrew Johnson At NashiEltt. In announcing himself a candidate tor Congress from the State ut Large, Andy Johnson, iu closing his great speech at Nashville, ou Saturday ' uiyhi AtiKtist 24th, said: While I am free to say that l.eilLtr of the Presidential candidates would have been my first choice, I am thorough!) convinced, directly -and iudirectiy, from my personal knowledge of the man aud the opinion derived from others iu re ference to the present Administration, that I would be prepurcd to go for uuy body or anything rather than buve it continued iu power. While Mr. Gree ley may not have been my first choice, I say ho is an important step toward re moving the present incumbent. So much for the Presidential canvass, We have no hesitancy as to who to vole for between the two men. ' If Greeley will net m accordanpt with his promises, the people will nfutnf b his administration. II lie sustains the right, tho people will sustain him. That is all that can be asked ol any peo pie. Fellow citizens, them wore some res olu.ioiis read hi re to-night in reference to uiv becoming a CMniiilule fur Con xiess.

At the con.-lnsion the speaker was loudly cheered by the audience as he re tired. Nothing in the Liberal Movement. It is the constant cry of the renomi nfttiouiats that there is nothing in the Liberal movement save a little tore faeadism, that the bottom has fnllen out of it and that ?t will be uttery invisible before November. For a falling institu tion it seems to be tolerably well sup plied with friends. The New York Tri bune publishes a lint of 586 newspapers which support Greeley and Brown, and 1 257 of these were formerly Republican I m. Tt.itanamtan W4 amiswi. Honey Making-, Is the object ol t he wt.r.d's pursuit It is a legitimate object. It gives breuo anil clothing, and homes and comfort, and the world judges wisely when it makes the position a niau occupies i. hinge eonipaiutively more or less on his ability to earn money, and somewhat on the uinoiirt t.f his possessions. If he it. poor, it argues either sojte defect ii. his expenditures or a lack of prnctica: education to cope with nieu in the bat tle for gold. When a'boy leaves home it is gener ally to enter upon some business, tin eud of which is to acquire property, and he will succeed just in proportion as he has been trained for the work. Ever community is tilled with young and middle-aged men who are failures be cause they know nothing of business their training have been iheoretical, not practical and useful. Many are tied to pursuits . they heartily dislike and which are much below their capacity and ability, and vrould change their course of life tuid better their condition but for the fact that relatives aud friend. generally ojqme rather than encourage the effort. There never has been a time in the history of our country w hen er ert and intelligent young men, who havt iieeti taught practical life lessons and thoroughly educated for btisiuess, wen in such demaud as nt present. So great is the money capital of our '-oiintry, so sharp is the competition, so great is the value of lime, and so ex- ert have lending business men becouit Unit young men no longer have a chance 'o excel and hardly to succeed, unless i hey tire trained directly for this chang ed condition of the times. The Pleasure of Newspaper Publish ing in Peru. Punngthe recent unsuccessful venture of the War Minister of President Bnlta. lo establish himself as Dictator, tit least one of the newspaper eflices had an ex perience of revolution by no means so agreeable as a midnight sen nude frou. even a collection of discordant broken horns, blown by musicians "hull seas" over, tnd utterly regardless of the deli cate adjustment of printers' nerves. The South Pacific 'limex had suspcndid pub lication for it day or ' tvo. The i flice ii Callr.o was tired ir.lo. find a time ponim shot fell into the nitliiig-rroui of Mr. Law ton, the pio nt tor.

Ti e Time exnected to resume on the 30th Julv. Whetl.er Intended or Not. The New York World truthfully re marks that Blantou Duncan's bolting convention, whether so intended or not, is a movemtint in Grant's interest; and so far us it has any success, it will re dound to Grant's advantage.. Every Democrat in the country of any emi nence or influence supports the Balti more nominations. TI.ey aresuppoited by every Democratic member of Con gress, every Democratic Senator, and every Democratic State Governor. Who is this ex-Confederate Lieutenant-Colonel, who never smelt gunpowder and never was known as a Democrat, tbal he should call a bolting convention to mutiny against the deliberate judgment and decision of the Democratic organiza tion, and the judgment of all its recog nized and trusted leeders ? Brutal Otiiii.gc iu South Carolina. Washington Logan, a printir, ami a peaceful, inoffensive man while passing through the upper portion of Stuutei' conuty, S. C, a few days ago, was set upon by irob of infuriated negroes, beaten almost to death, and then drag ged off to Iu rshaw jail, and lodged there under the charge of being the murderer ul' a negto kilhd recently somewhere hove Camden. Tt seeius that a day or two previously, some worthless (ramp, in j'l.ssiug t broti. h the i-atue neighborhood, had shipped a negro woman's lace, ami .hat lu r friends, who wi re on the look out for the iifliHiler, met Logan, and mistaking him, or pretending to mistake him, for the person who had committed the assault, seized and beat him most unmercifully. His life was saved by the inteifeit m e of a negro more prudent ihaii the rest of bis companions. Cannon That Yi ill Throw a Five Ton Bali. A new idea for heavy ordinance is proposed by Bessemere, the inventor of the cheap process of making steel. lu st cad of setting tire to all the powder in ids gun ut once, he divides his charges into diffrreut cells, and explodes (hem successively, all going off before the lnli leaves the gun, and each giving it anew impulse. He wants now to make u can non twenty yards long, with a bore ol thirty inches, mid walls eight inches '.hick, and with this he will fire a shel: weighing five tt ns. Such - a projectile striking any existing iron-clad ship ii. the hull, neur Ihe water line, would sink her at the first pop, uud would seriously tluiuage our strongest fortifications. . Scott Lt serfs Grant The Charleston, S. C , New says: "In a speech at Greenville General Butler said thnt Governor Scott had told him that 'he did not care if Greeloy was elected.' The trouble was that Mr. Grant had accused Governor Scott of stealing; that Grant was poor and ho is rich: that Scott could have bought Grant out. and now Grant could buy Scott out. This led Governor Scott lo ask this pertinent question : 'If I got my tnovry by' dealing, now tho Mr, o rant geihui These things confirm ' whnt is openly said in political circles in Columbia. Gov ernor Scott is not f ran lie on Ihe subject of Grant '-' But what would the people think of Mr. Scott as the Greeley can didai for Governor of 'our beloved State.' Surely politics make ns acquain' ted with strange bed fellows. ' . Plain Speaking. The Memphis Atnual goes for Andy iu this plain emphatic, and bold luaniur: hat a stormy t arter is this of An drew Johu&on ! If he could win in the terrible struggle upon which he is just eutering, a result wholly impossible, he has only begun a new lite of ceaseless intellectual combats, and he Incomes immortal as the political prize fighter of the age. He abhors Btn. Butler, and the wUy Mussachusttts Congressman will have for the first time an antagonist .8 solid as the everlasting rock-ribbed mountains whose rugged majesty first lent inspiration to Johnson's genius But of what avail is all this? Vhul good can come of it? Would Tennessee or the South gaiu aught by sending up to Washington a keg of mtro-glyccnne? Would the "bloody-chasm" ciose its re volting jaws more rapidly if Johnson's leal fill diatribes upon the government of Grant and Gram's hideous morals and practices be opened np in the House of Representatives? What can the South r the country gain of tranquility or peace ? Will be secure the enactment ol m -asmea of prac tical btniticence? An adhereut of Grant would not vote Grant money or imps if the proposition came from Andrew Johnson. Cheatham will .oon wiu the same place and potency in ( ongrtss that he holds among the peo ple. He will be as popular in Washing ton as ho was in the army, and is to-day among the people of his couutry. Of the two men, ChtaO am is infinitely more capable of serving, ) radically, his con s uuciitR. Andrew JohiiBou exhausts usefulness wheni he imparts to the peo ple philosophical views of American theories of government as wise and -tntesmaiilike as those of the fathers of onstitutioi al law, aud, while Mr. Johu non as a candidate, is worthv of an au dicnee, as a Congressman he can serve us in nothing. Receipt lor "Straight Out" Soup, The Louisville Courier-Journal recoiu inends that iu the organization of his convention, it will be well for Mr. Dun can to take a bint from the process by which Mark Twain deelars the Lest bean soup to I e made. "Take a lot of water," says Mark, "wash it well, and broil it until it is brown on both sides; then vtry carefully pour one beau into it and let it simmer. When the beans begin to get restless, twcelen it with talt, then put it up in air-tight cans, hitch each can to a brick and chuck them over board, and the soup is done." The pro cess of making a large convention out of one man must be similar, and we urge its adoption. Let theColot.el either have the hall ornamented with a goodly number of mirrors, or let him imitate the example of William Pitt, who, upon going to his seat in Parliament on one occasion after dinner, when he w as about half seas over, or as the ancient would say, e brioli, remarked to Will erforce, who said he couldn't see any tpeaker, that he saw "two spuukers.,' It is evident that some expedient of the kind must be adopted, or (he Colonel will "feel like one who treads alone Some banquet boll deserted, Whose lights arc fled, whose iiarlnnds dead, Aud all but hiiu departed." English Settlers in Virginia. The Scottaville (Va..) Register says. "Thtre seems to be a prospect of Vir ginia being settled again by the honest and intilligent people of England Mr. B.mger, together w ith four other Eng lishmen, have purchased the magnificent farm of Mrs. Scott, known as Scotland, containing 1,700 acres price, $35 000. II ii fol d, also tin Englishman, has b.iught au adjoining farm of Mr. Nor berne Morrison. Two other Englishmen and a Scotch capitalist have purchased two of the largest farms in Albemarle county, for which they paid $50,000. Altogether about $100,000 invested in the vicinity of Scottaville." Dwellings for the Poor. A new experiment has been made near Loudon, with a view of meeting the great demand existing in thut city for dwellings for the humbler classes. A new town is to be built in the sububs, close to a line of railway, and to consist entirely of workmen's houses 1,200 in number. One feature of the project is 'h i! each of the tenants, after a time, is to become the owner oi his house, by paying a certain sum in addition to the rent. In the centre is a large plot for a recreation ground, and there are also to be lecture halls, schools, clubs, reading tooms, baths, and other conveniences. Public houses are not to be admitted. Tho experiment w;ll be watched with L'Teat interest in England, and doubtless iu this couutry also. A Man 103 Years Old, Commits Sui cide. It is quite astonishing to find a man 103 years old hanging himself, os Wm. George did at Roch-stjr, IIL. last week; for since death at any rate must be close at hand, Ihe tiouble of a rope, of finding a place of suspension, and ad justing the holler, seems to be hardly worth the taking. On the other hand, it may reconcile us to being cut off un timely at 80 or so, to know that w hen a man gets into the hundreds ho dosn'i find life particularly pleasant. Still, if we nave any reader who is 103 year old, we advise him to be patient What, lit tle is left of his mortal coil will shuffle itself off soon enough. The Montana Triumph. - Tho Democratic majority in the Ter ritory of Montana approximates 500. Last year the Radicals carried the Ter ritory aud elected Clagett to Congress by 413 majority. This shows a Demo cratic and Liberal gain of nearly 1,000 in a total vote of 10,000, giving a gain of a Democratic Congressman in the election of Maginnis, and securing an unmistakable endorsement of Greety nd Brow. Concerning Colonels. The too profuse use of the title of "Colonel ' elicits these pertiueut remarks from the Philadelphia iW : To call a nian a "Colonel" is to con vey the idea that he is of a mild, meek aud benevolent disposition. It is ulso an evidence that ITe never was a soldier. For instance, we may recall some of the Colonel's of Philadelphia. There is Col onel Forney, Colouel McClnre, Colonel McMichnel, Colouel ScottColonel Mann, Colonel Fi.zgerald, Colonel Phillips, Colonel Hinchen, Colonel Green, and Colonel Fritz Of what regiment ? And we might mention inauy more gentlemen if high stauding who have never been iu the army, ami can only be called Colonel" as a tribute to their antipathy to blood. If every Colonel was a soldier, ihe standing army iu Philadelphia would be a menace to our liberties. Their number is as great as it was in San Francisco, to which John Phoenix bears witness iu the following story: The steam boat was leaving the w harf, and everybody was taking leave of friends all but Phcenix, who had no friend to i iid him farewell. Ashamed of his lone .iuess, as the boat sheered off, he called out, in a loud voice, "Good-bye, Colonel!" and, to his great delight, every man ou the wharf took oil his hat and shouted, "Colonel, good-bye 1" A Fool for Luck. John, the fool of the New York Sun, was made rich in spite of. himself at Long Branch, and this was the way it was done: Just as I was the hungriest, Longfel low and Harry Bansett were brought out, and they went round the corner like two Colt's revolvers. All the nice young men around me stood up and bowed and scraped uud held up one finger 68 if they were stopping an omnibus. They all veiled: "A hundred to eight on Harry Bassett " They all appeared to be so very polite thnt I held up my linger top, and I nodded and bowed back to nil of them. I never saw such a polite lot of young men before. You would have thought I was the Grand Duke A'txis. I kept tip the bow ing just as long as they did, snd pretty soon the tace was over, and I confess I was agreeably turprised to see about four hundred young men tile up and each one chuck a $100 bill Linto my lap Th"n I thought that lot of young men just the nicest lot of young men I had ever met There I sat with $40,000 in my lap, and, much to my as tonishment I found out that all the time I was pointing my finger and bowing back to 'em, darned if I wasn't taking every darned bet that was made, and darned if I knew it I only hnd eight dollars iu my pocket, and if I had lost, I d slept in au oyster bed that night, sure. Ex-President Johnson. . Many of our readers are already aware that ex-President Johnson has announced himself as an independent Candidate for Congress from the State at large. Some months ago we express ed our preference for him for the posi tion over all others, and we had hopes thut the State Convention would nomi nate him. But it seems that the cards were stocked upon him and his friends refused to go into the Convention, and hence we have him as an independent candidate. Thin places things in rath er an awkward fix. Mr. Johnson has a host of ardent friends throughout the State, who will give him a most zealous support, while Gen. Cheatham is the nominee ot his party in Convention. The prestige of a State Convention, no matter how it is gotten up, gives the nominee advantages over bis opponent not easily overcome. All party men will feel bound to support the nominee, although they greatly prefer the inde pendent candidate. That is exactly our fix. If we expect to keep up our party organization we must support the nom inees of our Conventions. We do not intend to say aught against Ex-President Johnson during the canvass, but wo feel in duty bound to give our sup port to Gen. Cheatham. CUveland Ban ner, States as Plaintiffs. The United States Circuit Court for the District of Minnesota, Judges Mil ler and Dillon concurring, has decided, in the case of Wisconsin us. tne City of Dulluth, that a State cannot maintain an action as plaintiff in the Curcuit Courts of the United States. The Su preme Court of the TJu.ted States has original iurisdiction in such cases, and i i jurisdiction is conferred on no other Court of such cases by the Constitution propna vtgore. If Congress can confer on the Circuit Courts an original juris diction in this class of cases concurrent with that of the Supreme Court, it is a sufficient answer to say that it has not done so. , A Ten Thousand Dollar Wager. Mr. Benjamin Wood, the editor of the New York Evening Foul, has manifested his faith in the success of Greeley and Brown by wagering $10,01)0 that Horace Greeley will be elected the next Presi dent of the United States. It has been stated by Grant organs that a General , Hillyer, a Graut man, has taken the above bet This is not true, and the sum mentioned still remains deposited at the office of the Nnv, waiting for the man who believes $10,000 worth that Grant will be his own successor. , Decision of the Attorney General. A Washington dispatch say, the At torney General has decided that all to bacco stored in bonded warehouses uud withdrawn for sale or consumption be fore the first of July, 1872, is subjet t to the taxes prescribed by the act of Ju'y, 1868, and that all tobacco in bomld; warehouses on said first of July, with drawn after that date for the same pur poses, is subject to the tax prescribed by toe act of Jure 1872.
