""' K Conclusion. fated Though Free. When Henry Ward 13eechcr told the inhabitants of Brooklyn last week in a public address Athai one-fourth of the colored popula x tioa of the South had been swept from tbe earth during and since the war. it is amazing how little surprise or grief ? the, announcement occasioned, and yet it is the most appalling story in Histo ry. . ?s ; , Philanthropy essayed to confer upon the colored race a blessing, and yet no ; wrath of God was ever so awfully de structive as this love of man. No fa mine, no pestilence, no earthquakes, no 4 inundations, uone of the treasured urs f.t es of the Almighty ever spread such . desolatian as this blessing of man. And the end is not yet. A dread . ful pestilence is now scourging this race in most of the Southern States, the pest , that contributed most to sweep the In j,7dians from this continent and from the earth Small-pox, the daughter of idle frvness, filth and unthrift, is gathering in a fearful harvest. And there comes behind it a ghastly gleamer the Cho lera, which, unless all human , expe rience is vain, will wreak its direst vengeance on these, the poorest, most thoughtless, most unclean, most intem perate, every way most wretehed of the community. And yet the Constitutional Ainend v jnent is law. , Are there not "tender mercies" men tioned in the Scripture which are balled . . "cruel?" Pel. Index. Romance in a Senator s Life. FrszerV Magazine tells the following - story, but does not mention the name of its hero, who is Senator Lane of Kan sas : ' A distinguished politician of Indi ana, becoming interested in the move ment for making Kansas a free State, left his wife and repaired to that terri tory, intending t3 return soon. Becom ing, however, indentified with the strug gles of Kansas, the Senator stayed away Yery long. His wife at length demand- ed bis return. lie wrote back that it was impossible to return. His wife waited a little then wrote declaring that unless he returned by a stated time, she would sue for a divorce. Tha Senator made no reply, but gave a glowing ac count of the patriotic movement in which he bore a conspicuous part, lbe next letter he received was from the clerk of a court in Indiana, informing him that his wife had filed a bill, with another from a lawyer offering to de fend him. The Senator wrote back to the lawyer as follows: "Dear Sir: Yours to hand. JMy.wife says she will not stand my long absence. If I were the I would not stand it either. I shall offer no opposition to her suit.' Yourf, &c., , Two years later when the divoce had long been granted, this Sena tor returned to Washington as the Sena- ,tcr of the free State of Kansas,. visited his old home in Indiana, and found his wife still blooming and handsome, and s surrounded by admirers. With the rest he visited her from time to time, became the accepted lover, and was mar ried to her." 1 ';-v-.f6Ti A "wretch". in Loudon has the tails of bis ponies done up to look like a lady's waterfall when he drives in the tik. APPEAL; ASSOCIATION FOR THE RELIKF OF SOUTHERN SUFFERERS. -.... . 5, , i , V t s , . 1 it .-V' . ; : - ,'.... ' . .' A number of the Ladies of Maryland have formed an Association for 'the par pose of alleviatiug, to ethe extent"of their ability, the wretchedness and went which the late war has entailed upon large por tions of the population of the South. As the work which they propose to themselves is purely bneof charity, and 'as its scope, unhappily, must-need be ample to be of much avail, they feel justified in calling for liberal assistance upon all good people who sympathize with human creatures and brethren in suffering and sorrow. They, therefore, respectfully and earnestly invite contributions of all sorts to the end in view, and especially in furtherance of a Fair or Bazaar, which they are preparing to open in the city of Baltimore, as soon as may be possible after Easter. They have already received encouragement which promises them much success in this latter undertaking, and they trust that the pres ent appeal may so insure it, that they may be enabled to send relief to the thousands of desolate homes . and destitute women and children. They do not deem it neces sary to enlarge upon the widespread misery and want throughout the South, of which every day brings them heart-rending ac counts, unfortunately too true. They can safely assm-c the charitable, whose almon ers they ask to ba, that no wider or sadder field was ever open to the kindliness of those cheerful givers whom God loves. The following named Ladies have been appointed Officers and an Executive Com mittee of the Association. All money and articles of value which may be transmit ted to any of them, or to the Mamagers a list of whom will be publish in a few days will be gratefully received, and ap plied as may be directed. An efficient Committee of Gentlemen will give their personal attention to the business of the Association, and to the careful management and impartial distribution of its funds. resident Mrs. Benjamin C.
