This was a stunning blow; but men whose motto is nil desperandum, men who have faith in their cause, faith in themselves, and faith in their Mas ter, "laugh at impossibilities" and cry "it shall bej done.'j, jAussitot dit, aussitot fait. v-, 4 s i ,The "jpducationalf; establishment was beguiyvith what available cap ital was forthcoming; ' and under the wise" fostering' care of its' Fac ulty, has developed into lusty life and power, and is silently affecting the character of the education of the South. This is one of what may be termed.. the modern uses.oi a University' In the Mother Country its power is being I feltlall over the land, and it is doing solid work as an examining body, ly the direction which such examinations imply, and by the exact knowledge that such ordeals enforce. The University is a silent power in Sewanee, it is seen everyvhere,felt everywhere, controls all things. Here is one place at least, where the inquisitive, vulgar, blatant niob with its obtuse self assertion, and childish chatter, has no show. The traditions of centu ries do not cluster around its build- j . . ..... 1 in it is an infant, but with tin.' ; indications of a vigorous manhood. ine iounaations are lam, unon which j a, glorious . temple of educa tion may be reared, and the rolling centuries wilL- cast around it, . the mantle of - tradition, i and fill all niches with the busts of its noblest sons. The work of the University is'now beginning to be known and to re-act favorably. ' Students edu- caieu nere nu varpus positions in, law, physic, .and divinity, and their success jis assuring and en couraging, .The University is rap idly increasing numerically and in fame, and bids. fair to -realize the noble purpose' of those who laid its foundation in times of- difficulty, trial ' and discouragement. ' ' Three excellent "stone' buildings:1 the' : Li- brary.containing 18,000 yols.,chierly theological; St. Luke's Theological Hall; and the Hall of Science, have replaced - ! corresponding - wooden structures', and when the necessary funds'are' forthcoming; the present Church of St. Augustine will be represented by a worthier structure in stone and marble. - . , The town of Sewanee consists of a series of residences.built on either side of the main road and its spurs; and removed some little distance from1 the street ' away ' among, the trees. '" The approaches to the majority of these residences is by winding well kept carriage drives, amongst lawns and flowers. '1 his gives an air of seclusion, and reposo to the whole village and reminds the wand dering Britisher of some of the older suburbs of London or other of the ancient towns of England; the bare faced newness of the thriviug new country .village is conspicuous by its absence. The tone of the matin and vesper bell, strikes the ear dreamily, and recalls thoughts of monasticism and pe.ibe, as we listened to its throb bings, then rose the tender memory of "days that are dead" but from whose ashes, may arise the better days to come. In nothing is the impression of the University more perceptible than in- the courtesy which is habitually shown to visitors. Here Rugby and Sewanee stand upon common ground and deserve honorable comparison. . We hope that the near future will enable us to place before the public an edu cational scheme, .that will do. for Rugby a work similar to that which the University is doing for Sewanee. We have all the physical possibili ties of Sewanee, and more, may her shadow never be less, and ours greater. " The following from the pen of one t)f the most profound publicists in the United States will be read with interest. It may look out of place in a non-partisan journal, but, coming as it does from a great poli tical student, and presenting a new and original picture of a great polit ical struggle, we give it a place in our columns:? ,. r . .'. Both the great political parties have put 'their candidates. in the field, each pair to make the best use of their opportunities in the way of persuading the people to give them their Votes. It is not necessary, for the purposes of this article, to treat of the nominees of other par ties, though it is quite possible that in certain contingencies, the bug bear of the blue blood of Massachu setts may cause sufficient trouble in November to make all the calcula tions of the regular political proph ets look exceedingly askew. This, however ,is, by the ly; the main question which concerns iis now is the success or failure of the Re publican or Democratic nominees And just here comes in the question what is the precise issue that tho people are supposed and expected to fight about at the polls in Novem ber? , Is the question to bo whether Mr. Cleveland or Mr. Blaine is the more conscientious or more able man? Is it to be whether Mr. Blaine or Mr. Cleveland, as candidates, represent the predominant belie 1 of the people or any given subject of national polity? The first of these questions will be answered different ly, just according to the party proclivities of the person to-whom it may. b3 ; addressed. One will abuse Mi. Blaine on account of his suspicious transactions in railroad bonds, another will vituperate Mr. Cleveland because of his indulgence in bachelor vices. But neither party to the1 controversy will succeed in convincing the other, if this is all or even the leading feature in the argument. The contest so far as it is merely personal, may well be illustrated by relating a remark made in reply to a question, by a noted railroad man and Republican immediately before the Republican convention. Said he: "I don't know yet about Blaine; if ho ain't nomi nated I'll ' believe he stole them bonds; if they nominate him I'll swear he didn't. That, so far as it goes, expresses the whole meaning of the political campaign, in so much as the per sonal, qualities' of the candidates are concerned. But the American public of to-day cares very little, if at all, for the personal qualities of its candidates. At least this would be a fair deduction from recent political events. Then, what re mains? , The platform, or express ion of political principals would be the natural reply. But, study both platforms. They are alike in all essentials. The tariff question, the only really live political issue about which thinking men can differ to day, might as well have been expoun ded by Henry Wattersou for Re publicans, and Zach. Chandler for the Democrats as not. . They remind one of Mr. ! Lincoln's unblushing joke when he apologized to the young lady for drinking, by mistake, out of her, instead of his, glass, they are as like as two peas. No man can distinguish any salient point ot difference between them. Yet ' the people are asked to vote for one or the other, and expected to do their voting with a serious purpose. .Is it all likely that, with nothing to choose between but the personality of two men both of them, it is true, successful politicians in their differ out, w-'ivfi tlint. tlifi npftnln urn rrnimr to i grow exceedingly enthusiastic for either this or that candidate? Hardly, and without that enthu- siasm wmcn leaas to revolution, which candidate will naturally have the best chance? Who but ho in whose interest all the official forces of the present dominant party will be directed! It is certain that the postmasters, internal revenue in spectors, government detectives and all of their tribe, family or social belongings are not voluntarily going to vote themselves out of office, Thiscrowd alone can command a vote larger than was claimed as Mr. Tilden's popular majority in 1876. Then, taking all the premises into consideration, the necessary deduo tion is; ' failing -some other prime motive power, that Mr. Cleveland and his following are largely in the vocative. The only thing that can defeat or change this view is the discovery of a new and commandin element in the argument, one that will enlist" the popular suffrages to such an extent as to completely nullify the strength of the official vote. I robabiy it is too late for tho Democrats to look for this, but it is pretty nearly certain that Mr. Hendricks indicated it in fairly accurate terms in his recently pub lished letter to Secretary Chandler. It has always, in business circles, been held to be wise policy to havo periodical examinations of tho books of account by disinterested parties. So true is this that most woll man aged banks cctapel their responsible money officers to take periodical ' vacations, during which all their ac counts are passed under the eyes of uew men. This is the exact point where the interests of the peonlo are involved in tho present campaign- The election of Mr. Blaine or Mr. Cleveland, so far as they alone aro personally concerned, or so far as the principles enunciated by their respective parties have any weight," is simply a . choice between two eligibilities. Blaine is said to havo been a thief, but that has had no apparent effect upon the choise of him as the standard hearer of tho great party that arrogates to itself the exclusive right to expound and enforce' all principles of justice. Against Cleveland various sins of a different character are charged; ono of them,' oddly enough, being that he had tho manhood to do his duty while sheriff of Erie County; but none of these charges, if proven, would affect his capacity as the chief' executive officer of the people of tho United States. But, one point of the last importance, needs only to be suggested to inflame the intelli gence of every man who has person al independence enough to think oufside of the mere priestcraft of party. That point is that the ac count books of tho country have not been thoroughly audited for a quarter of a century. During that time thousands of millions of money have been collected and expended. Every financial officer that has been chosen' for place during theso long years has been practically, though ' perhaps, not in set terms, pledged, to keep both eyes shut as to any delinquencies that his predecessors m office may have caused or per mitted. Party fealty compelled this. The people only knew that in the tew glimpses they havo had in side matters, when some errant just of circumstances has watted the curtain aside, that robbery has been suddenly exhibited in stalwart proportions. Ihey now are waking to the fact that only through a com plete change of servants can they hope to have a complete understand ing of the details of official stew ardship. If they only get this idea into their heads in time and to tho necessary extent, the elections in November can not be controlled by the force of official patronage, nor by the smoothness of official "soap" a new set of men, pledged to new constituencies, will havo sway next March. The books of the nation will be audited and a clean balance struck, showing precisely ' where and how all public moneys havo been expended and in what condi tion the national exchequer stands. This is the only question as be tween the parties. Straf. . Proud of His Country. A prominent lawyer from Knoxvillo was recently being driven by a small boy from Lancing to Wartburg in the vehicle that plies daily between those places. Tho small boy is very greatly interested in politics, espec ially in the pending presidential election, and at once seized the op portunity of testing the opinion of the prominent lawyer. Small Boy I say lawyer who do you reckon will be elected President this year? Prom. Lawyer Cleveland of course. Small Bmj "Of coorse?" Why do you think so? Prom.
