"And you would impose such obliga-

scarcely necessary. Of course I shall be

She put »ut her fevered hands, and

emotion of a dying spirit.

lie turned impatiently as he spoke, 
and left the room. She did not call again. 
And just the* her little boy peeped in. 
He had been -christened Raby. 
"Yon may come, dear." 
Raby Verner, a child of seven, who 
had inherited his mother's beauty, drew 
towards her on tiptoe. He was too in- 
telligent for his years, too sensitive, too 
thoughtful. Hie large and brilliant brown 
eyes were raised to hers with a sweet, sad 
expression of inquiry. Than the long, 
dsrk eyelashes kll over them, and he 
laid his head on her bosom, and threw 
up his arms lovingly to clasp her neck. 

"Raby, I was just thinking of you, I 
must tell you something."

union was followed by a grand 
marriage, solemnized openly; and the 
bridewroom took his wife's nam* with 
her fortune, And became Verner Raby. 
Very, very soon was her illusion dissolved, 
and she found that ahe had thrown away 
tbe substance to grasp the shadow. Mr. 
Raby speedily tired of his new toy, and

than himself, had risen to affluence and 
rank, and was winning hie way tothe*ap- 
probation of good men. He bad prob- 
ably forgotten Maria Raby. It is cer- 
tain that his marriage bad speedily fol- 
lowed upon ber own; perhaps he wished 
to prove to the world that her inexcusable 
conduct had not told irremediably upon 
him. Thus Mrs Raby had lived for 
man? years, bearing her wrongs in silence 
and battling with her remorseful feelings. 
But nature gave way at last, and her 
health left her a few months of resigned 
suffering, and the grave drew very near.

Her first child, a girl, had died at its birth; 
several years afterwards a boy was born. 
She was lying now, eadly thinking of him, 
when her husband entered. He had come

see it, and 

-Raby, darling, do you know that I 
am going to leave you — that 1 am goiu" 
to heaven?" 

The child had known it some time, for 
he had been alive to the goeeipping oi the 
servant*, hut, true to hi* shy and sensitive 
nature, be had buried the know ledge and 
tbe misery within his poor little heart. — 
True to it now, he would not give vent to 
emotions, but his mother felt that he 
ered from head to foot, as his clasp 
tightened upon her. 

"I read a |arelty book, Raby, once. It 
told of of the creed of some people, far, far 
away from our own land, who believe that 
when they die — if they die in God's love — 
they are permitted to become ministering 
spirits to those whom tbey leave here; to 
hover invisibly round them, and direct 
their tbonghts and steps away from barm. 
My dearest, how 1 should really like 10 
find this to be really the case! 1 would 
come and watch over you.™ 

His sobs could no longer be suppressed, 
though he strove lor ilatill. They broke 
out into a wail. 

"Raby, dear, you have heard that this 
is a world of care. All people find it so: 
though some more than others. When it 
aball fall upon you hereafter — as it is sure 
to do — remember that God sends it only 
to fit you for a better land." 

What more she would bave said is un- 
certain. Probably much. The child was 
not like a child of seven; he was more like 
one of fourteen, and he understood well. 
It was Mr. Raby who interrupted them. 

"Raby! crying, sir! What for? Has 
your mamma been talking gloomy stuff to 
vou, or saying that she fears she is worse? 
It is not true, boy, either of it. Dry up 
that race of your*. Maria, you are not 
worse: if you were, I should see it Run 
away into the nursery, sir.' 1 

The boy drew away choking, and Mr. 
Raby continued- 

"It ia not judicious of you, Maria, to 
alarm the boy. 1 cannot think what has 
put these ideas into your head. He will 
be in tears for the rest of tbe day." 

"He is so sensitive,'' ahe whispered.— 
"Alfred, something seems to tell me he 
will he destined to sorrow. It is an im- 
pression I have always felt, but never so 
forcibly a* now. Shield him from it wher 
ever you can. Ob that I 
with me!" 
"You ai 

Mr. Raby. "Destined to sorrow, indeed! 
Is there nothing else yon fancy him des- 
tined to? Whence draw you your deduc- 

"I do hot know. But a timfd, sensitive, 
refined nature, such as his, with iu uuu- 

sua] gift of genius, is generally destined 
to what the world looks upon as adverse 
fate. It may be deep sorrow, or it may 
be an early deatb." 

"All mothers think their child a ge 
nine," interrupted Mr. Raby, in his slight- 
ing tone. 

"Well, if he" lives, time will prove," she 
panted. "I fear you will find my words 
true. When the mind is about to sepa- 
rate from the body, I believe it see's with 
unnsnal clearness — that it can sometimes 
read the future, almost with a spirit of 

•1 am not given to metaphisiea, Maria," 
remarked Mr. Raby, as he again escaped 
from the room. 

■Mr s. Verner Raby died, ifaby. in due

least, his reserved manners and his refined 
appearance gave a stranger the idea that 
he was proud. He kept one term at Ox- 
ford, and had returned to keep another, 
when a telegraphic despatch summoned 
him to London Mr. Verner Raby had 
died a sudden death. 

When Raby went back to Oxford, it was 
only to take his nameoff tbe college book*, 
for his father had eaten up all he possess-

Why dsyou say that, Coram?"

At that moment tbey were interrnpted 
by Raby. He came across the room in 
search of something wanted in his work, 
aDd Sir Arthur Sax.wjhurv saw that the 

form. Sot more than fiddle heightj and 
slender, his long arm* and legs looked too 
long for his body. He stooped in the 
■boulders, be had a sensitive look ot 
physical weakneas, and his gait waa un- 
certain and timid. Coram laid bis hand 
on 1iis shoulder. 

"This is Sir Arthur Saxonbury, of 
whom you have heard so much, he 

Raby was unacquainted with the epi- 
sode in his mother s early life, therefore 
the flnsh that rose to, and dyed his face, 
was caused only by the greeting of a stran- 
ger; with these sensitive natures, it i* 
sure to do so, whether they be man or 
woman. The bright color only served to 
render him more like Maria Raby, and 
Sir Arthur, in spite of the sore reeling 
her treatment had left, felt his heart warm 
to her eon. A wish half crossed his mind 
that that that son was his — his heir, hs 
had no son, only daughters. Raby was 
astonished at tb* warmth of his greeting, 
Sir Arthur clasped and held his hand, he 
turned with him to Inspect the painting 
he was engaged on. It was a sei ^-created 
landscape, betraying great imaginative 
power and genius; but genius, as yet, only 
half cultivated. 

"You hate, yoor work cut out for you.

"I know it, Sir Arthur. I ought to 
have begun tbe study earlier; but during 

the Kisara picture. 


A gentleman stood one morning in the 
studio of a far-famed painter, the great Co- 
ram, as tbe world called him. The visit- 
or waa Sir Arthur Saxonbury, one of these 
warm patron* of art all too few in Eng- 
land. Rich, liberal, and enthusiastic, his 
name was e welcome sound, not only to 
Lisa ■rraaaAil. hut 1 > the atrafsglinarjurtiat. 
Thepaiiiler was out; trot, in a second room 
seated before an easel, underneath the 
softened light of the green blind, was 
a young mau, workiug assiduously. Sir 
Arthur took little notice of him at first; 
he supposed him to be an hamble assist- 
ant, or color-mixer of the great man's; but, 
npon drawing nearer, he wa« struck with 
the exceeding and rare beauty of the face 
that waa raised to look at him. But for 
the remarkable intellect of the high, broad 
brow, and the flashing light of the lumi- 
nous eye, the face, in it* sweet and delicate 
symmetry, in its transparency of complex- 
ion, might have been taken lor a woman's. 
Sir Arthur, a passionate admirer of beau- 
tv, wherever he aaw it, forgot the pictures 
of still life around him, and gazed at the 
living one: gazed until he heard the pain- 
ter enter. 

"Who is that in the other room?" in- 
quired Sir Arthur, when their greetings 
were over. 

"Ah, poor fellow, his is a sad history. 
A very common one, though. When did 
you return to England, Sir Arthur?'' 

"Hut last week. Imdy Saxonbury is tired 
of France and Germany, aud her health 
seems to get no better. I must look at 
your new works, Coram; 1 suppose you 
you bave many to show me, finished or 

"Ay. It must be three years since you 
were here. Sir Arthur." 


Tbey proceeded round the room*, when 
Sir Arthur'* eye once more fell on the 
yotiug man. 

"He has genius, that young fellow, has 
be not?" he whispered. 
"Very great geniu*." 
"I could have told it," returned Sir Ar- 
thur. "What a countenance it i*J Trans- 
ferred to cauvas, its beauty alone would 
make the painter immortal. His face 
seems strangely familiar to me. Where 
can I have seen it?" 

Mr. Coram had hie eyes bent closely to 
one of hi* painting* He eaw a speck on 
it which had no business there. The bar- 
onet', remark remained unanswered. 

"I presume he is an aspirant for fame," 
continued Sir Arthur. "Will beget on?" 
"No," said Mr. Coram. 
Sir Arthur Saxonbury looked surprised. 
•'It is the old tale," proceeded the paint- 
er. "Poverty, friendlevsnes*, and over- 
whelming talent" 

"Talent has struggled through moun- 
tains before now, Coram," significantly 
observed the baronet. 

"Ye*. But Baby's enemy lies here," 
touching his own breaat. "He is inclined 
to consumption, and these ultra-refined 
natures cannot battle against bodily weak- 
ness. His sensitiveness is soin.ething.inar- 
vellou*. A rude blow to his feelings would 
do for him." 

Sir Arthur had looked up at the' sound 
of the name. "What did yon call him? 
Raby?" * 

"Raby Verner Raby is his name. The 
son of spendthrift Verner and Maria Raby 
the heiress." 

Raby Verner Rabv I Middle-aged 
though he was, years though it was ago, 
now, since hi* dream of lor* with Maria 
Raby bad come to an abrupt ending, 
Sir Arthur Saxonbury, once Arthur Mair, 
positively felt his cheek* blush through 
his gray whiskers. He glanced eagerly 
at Raby a face, and memory carried him 
back to its spring-time, for those were 
her very eye*, with their *wi 
chollv expression, and those 
chiselled features. 

"I saw Ver»cr Raby'* death in tbe pa-

pend on bow, tor with him died my 
wealth and my prospects." 

"H* had great wealth once. How 
could he have been so reprehensible as 
to dissipate it all, knowing there was one 
to come after him?" involuntarily spoke 
Sir Arthur. 

"These are thoughts that I avoid," re- 
plied Raby. "He was my father." 

"Do you remember much of your

"It was a face that the world doe* not

own is like it," he added, rousing himself. 

"Did you know my mother, Sir Ar- 

"Once: when she waa Miss Raby," an- 
swered the baronet, in an indiflerent tone, 
as he turned again to the painting. 
"Where do you live?" he suddenly asked. 

''1 give my addaess here," answered 
the young man. "Mr. Coram allows me 
to do sc.. though indeed it is never asked 
for. I have only a room in an obscure 
neighborhood. I cannot afford anything 

Sir Arthur Saxonbury smiled. "You 
are not like most people," he said: "they 
generally strive to hide their fallen for- 
tunes; you make no secret of yours." 

Baby shook hi* head, aad a strangely 
painful flush rose to his lace. His pover- 
ty was a sore point with him, the sense of 
disgrace it brought eating into His very 

"My fallen fortunes have been a world's 
talk," he answered. "1 could not keep 
them secret if I would." 

"Have you retained your former 
friends?" asked Sir Arthur-. 

"Not one. Perhaps it is, in some de- 
gree, my own fault, for my entire time is 
given to painting. Few would care to 
know or recognize me now. Raby Verner

In the evening, Raby turned to bis

called such. Ovram had spokeu accurate- 
ly: not half sufficient for what would gen- 
erally be called tbe bare necessaries of life, 
remained from the wreck of hi. father's 
property. But it was made to suffice for 
his wants. It would seem that surely his 
clothes must take it all. and none could 
conjecture how he contrived to eke it out 
He was often cold, ofUi hungry, always 
weary; yet his hopeful spirit bouyed him 
up, and pictured visions of future great- 
ness, lie never for one moment doubted 
that he was destined to become a world's 
fame; those who possess true genius are 
invariably conscious of it in their inmost 
heart: and he would repeat over and over 
agaiu to himself the words be telt must 
some time be applied to him — "The great 
painter — the painter Raby." 

He sat down that evening tohisdiuner- 
eupperof bread and cber-e. It tasted less 
dry than usual, for his thoughts were ab- 
sorbed by the chief event of the day, the 
meeting Sir Arthur Saxonbury. He at- 
tributed, in his unconsciousness, the inter- 
est which Sir Arthur had betrayed in him, 
to admiration of his genius: he knew how 
warm a supporter of rising artists Sir Ar- 
thur was, and he deemed the introduction 
the very happiest circumstance that could 
have befallen him. Could be but have 
foreseen what that introduction was to 
bring forthl

Once npon a time, and that time lees 
than a year ago, I was sitting at a dreary 
railway junction for the L. train. Wait- 
ing is at all lime* wearisome enough, but 
doubly so when stopping at a third-rate 
railroad hotel. Under such circumstances 
an obliging landlady and two or three 
prattling children are a godsend. I had 
both, aud to make my cup full and run- 
ning over, Mr*. Bartelmaaay thrown in. 

Mrs Bartelmassy was a pretty, plump 
little woman, with round blue eye* and 
brown wavy hair. Hearing the forties, I 
should guess; a traveler like myself. We 
met as strangers do in railroad travel; met 
and parted, and may never meet again, 
but she helped me to while away the te- 
dium of a lonely hour at a lonely inn. 

But, reader, I warn you, if you ase im- 
patient, or in a hurry, don't wait to read 
Air*. Bartelmassy'* story. I aball giv* 
it in her own word* a. nearly as possible; 
be bad t, ot interrupting and 
ngiog tlietfontinnons trickle and flow 
of her conversation by catching her breath, 
and lingering lovingly over her "ands" 
and "buts." In fact, she would go off 
into a sort of— wall, haze, I suppose, 
would express what I mean, wherein I 
i magi ned she would see visions and dream 
dreams, looking straight before ber, un- 
conscious for the moment of who was 
present or what ene had been saying, then 
beginning again with a catch of her 
breath, which, kind reader, you may nev- 
er enjoy unless you could hear Mrs. Bar- 
telmassy tell her own story. 

I shall give it in her own words, but 
remember she is only a— tconum. 

Mr. Will Firkin says, "Just let a lot of 
women get together, and they'll all get to 
laughing and all talking at ones, and no 
two of tbem talking about the same thing, 
and that night every one of them will have 
to tell everything she said, and everytating 
all the rest said, over to her husbanaf." — 
Don't I feel like getting behind Mr. Fir- 
kin and lifting him up by the ears, and 
shaking him out of his boot* for such a 
slander on tbe sex? Yes, I dol I didn't 
talk — no I didn't— only just to ask Mrs. 
Bartelmassy what dog bit ber, and how 
it happened, and when. And I didn't tell 
my husband about it that night, either, — 
for he beard it all hitngelf. I'm glad h* 
did, because he hurries me up sometimes 
hen I try to make myself entertaining by 
repeating for bis benefit something I've 
heard, read, or seen. He *ays, "A wo- 
mau can't tell a thing straight along 
through, and quit, to save her life; but 
must tell all about everything and every- 
body her story brings up." I'd like to 
shake him, too, if I dared. But let pa- 
tience have ber perfect work; there's a 
hereafter. I'm glad he heard Mrs. Bar- 
telmaaay, though, if there is. 

I was patting a flue setter of my hus- 
band's at th* door of that dreary hotel, 
when Mr*. Bartelmassy came in. I bave 
a weakness for dogs, out of doors, and 
"old Minx'' bad taken many a trip with 

"You must like dogs," said Mrs. Bar- 

"Yes, I have a weakness for dogs, es- 
pecially this one, she is so near human," 
I answered, bowing courteously. 

"Lordl I hate dog*! I reckon I always will 
hate 'em. Ye», always, I reckon. Do you 
see that band? Look at that scar! Right 
in the palm— clean through, too. Well, a 
dog bit me once right through that hand. 
And I've hated dogs ever since. Let me 
see, that was two years after I was mar- 
ried. Mother didn't wan't me to marry. 
She said I was too young, and she be- 
lieved I could do better than to marry 
Billy Bartelmassy, anyhow, if I'd wait 
But, sakes a alive! you needn't talk to a 

firl about waiting, when she once sets ber 
ead to marry. You'd just ae well *ing 
psalms to a dead donkey, as pa says. 

"So, we married and went to house- 
keeping, in a real pleasant neighborhood 
down on Sandy Bun. Yes. it was real 
pleasant. There was Sam White'* fami- 
ly, mighty nice people tbey were, lived in 
about half a mile of us. Susan, their 
oldest daughter, was cross eyed, but she 
didn't mean a bit of harm by it. And 
Ben, their-ah second son, was the most 
unaccouutable liar, Mr. Bartelmassy used 
to say, he ever did hear talk; but he was 
mighty polite to me, Ben was, and oue of 
tbe best talkers 1 ever listened to; real 
entertainiu'. They were a real nice fam- 

"And ah Mr. Perkins' family lived just 
about half a mile 00 the other side of us. 
They were of good family, old Virginia 
stock. They were from Culpepper coun- 

ty. The old man was close — well, real 
stingy, I reckon, from all the neigh bora 
tol l me. He'd buy sugar and coffee by 
th. dollar's worth, an. I ah they'd get out 
and send and borrow from me. They'd 
borrow anything and everything ah— a 

cup of parched coffee, or a teacup of *u- 
gar, or half a pound of butter, a 
of soda, or a few dices of ham uli. It 
wa» something or other 'most every day. 
They were mighty nice people, but, sakes 
alive!-they just borrowed my life out of 
me! Sometimes they'd send back short 
measure, and-ah sometime* none at all." 
Holding up her left hand — "But that 
•car! I'll wear it to my dyin' day!" 

"Did you say a dog bit you? Was it 
one of your own?" I asked. 

"Was it our dog that bit me? Law*, 
no! Our dogs never thought of biting 
anybody. Both of 'em was quiet and 
peaceable dogs aa ever was. 'Old Watch' 
would bark and romp around like he'd 
take the place, when anybody 'd come, 
bur jeat ep tou to binr, aud ah amafcl 
or khame him, and he'd go off and lie 
down quiet aa a lamb. And 'Urn,' there 
never was a better or smarter dog than 
'Gin'. Just say, 'Chickens, Gtnl' and 
ahe'd have tbe last one out of the garden 
before she quit She woaldn't let a pig 
come nigh the yard. And-ah she'd no 
more pretend to make a traek on my porch 
floor than you would. She know'd jest 
a* well when it rained, or waa muddy, 
that she mustn't come in, as a twelve 
year old child would a-know'd. She had 
a litter of puppies, once, ajid-ah I gave 
them all away but one. That one she'd 
bring in tbe kitchen every time sh.'d get 
the chance, and-ah lay it in a warm cor- 
ner by tbe cooking stove. I got-ah so 
mad at her for it, one day, that I kicked 
it clear out of the kitchen. 'Gin' looked 
at me, the moat grieved, reproachful lookl 
—I never will forgot that look!— then 
walked out, and-ah took up 
her mouth and carried it off up to' 
Matt' s and left it She'd go up there ev- 
ery day and suckle it, but she never would 
bring it back home! And-ah one day Mr. 
Bartelmassy brought me home a new tea- 
board After I'd looked at and admired 
it, 1 leant it up against the table until I'd 
get up. 'Gin' soon spied it, and-ah in it 
ahe saw herself reflected. She bristled up 

around, trying to make friend* with the 
dog in the teaboard. Then she'd run bo 
hind the teaboard, then-ah come round in 
front again, then bristle up, and growl, 
and snarl, and snap, at the dog m the 
teaboard until I thought I should die a 
laughing! I never saw a dog cu 
didoes in my life. I laughed at her si 
until I took a pain in my side, from which 
I had a real hard spell of sickness. 1 
come mighty near dying, I tell youl I lost 
my baby. I've had five since, and this 
is tbe only one living. Sp*ak to tbe lady,' 
Willie, and tell ber your name like a man 
when she asks you." 

"I sha'n't do it! Give me an apple, 
ma!" waa art the young hopeful deigned, 
and he walked off munching his ap 
I ventured to ask, while Mm. " 
sv pinned up her pocket:

"Laws, not 'Gib' never kit anybody' 
It was 'Old Bulger,' 'Squir* Neely'* dog. 
A great big, savage, yaller, brindle dog, 
that everybody was afeard of. I don t 
know what in the world ever made them 
keep such a dogl Tbey lived jest about 
two miles from our house, and-ah were 
real nioe. clever people, and-ah the beat 
kind of neighbors. I used to go over 
there right often; jest get on my horse and 
ride right over any time when Mr Bartel- 
massy was busy, for I'd get lonesome as a 
settin' turkey, sometimes. Mrs. Neely 
was mighty kind to me; a real mother. — 
If they killed hogs first she was sure to 
send me a spare rib or two, and some of 
ber sausage and souce. And when she 
made her mincemeat, she always sent me 
some. And-ah they never took a cap of 
honey without sending me a plateful of 
the nicest I reckon thfre never waa a 
better neighbor in the world than Mr*. 

"How did 'Squire N'eely's dog happen 
to bite you'.'" I asked. 

"How did the dog happen to bite me? 
Yes-ah, I must tell you that. Well, you 
see, I'd got Mr. Bartelmassy to saddle 
Jerry for me before he went to hi* work 
He was laying by his corn, I remember, 
and was mighty busy trying to get it laid 
by before oats harvest com* on. Whso-ah 
1 started, Mr. Bartelmassy aays to me, 
says he: 'Jenny, don't you let that dog bite 
you. Don't you get off your hone till 
you hail some of the family, and know 
he's tied." When 1 got there, they were 
all sitting out ia the porch, and-ah tbey 
had company, I couli sea. John and 
Betty were down at one end of the porch, 
with Dora Green and-ab Billa Ashley, 
aud Tom Smith. Mrs. Neely was settin' 
nearly at the other end of the porch, and 
she was sewing. And-ab just about mid- 
dle ways of the porch, 'Squire N**lr and 
Mr. Peters was settin' at a table playin' 
cards. The 'Squire waa mighty fond of 
card* and we always had to have a game 
every time 1 went over. A nigger hoy 
come out to hitch my horse, and-ab I 
asked him about 'Old Bulger'. He said 
he believed he'd gone to the field with 
Sam; he hadu't seen him for some time. 
I looked around, and-ah didn't see any-

No, she didn't resort to any such base

too. The 'Squire said afterwards he didn't

monkey. He was waylaid, robbed, mur-

The monkey witnessed the whole affair 
from a tree-top, aud as soon a* the villain* 
bad departed he went to the nearest police 
officer's station, attracted his attention by 
his sighs and groans, and finally led him 
to the grave of his master. He then en- 
abled the officer to recover the stolen prop- 
erty from the place where it had been 
concealed, and then went to th* bazar and 
picked out the murderen on* by one,

"Do you make any reduction to a 1

A word of explanation in regard to 
that defunct enterprise, and our connec- 
tion with it, may not beout of place. We 
t into it only after every one con- 
with it had obligated themselves 
to pursue a certain line ot conduct— 
They were all out of empfoyWnt. some 
of them had families to support, and 
we felt more than a passing friendship 
for several of them. Their condition 
worked upon oui sympathy, and ac- 
dedgea in good faiih, we 
procured the neceasary material for pub- 
lishing a daily ptper, and all hands fell 
to work, on the co-operative plan, and 
got out the Tribai*. The paper was 
popular, to our surprise, trom the be- 
ginning; and we are inclined to the 
opinion that this unexpected popularity 
proved its bane. The printers, with 
but three or four exceptions, after the 
first week, gave expression to their ela- 
tion by getting drunk, and the local ed- 
itors followed suit. That swamped our 
in taitlt the thing. We would have quit 
it on Thanksgiving Day, but they cajol- 
ed us by another and more stringent 
pledge of total abstinence from every, 
thing that does intoxicate, and we oon- 
sen ted to continue with the paper. — 
This fart pledge none of them pretend 
ed to keep. They evidently thought 
we would not desert the paper so long 
as we sajv a likelihood of getting back 
the money we had invested in it But 
they did not know us. No pecuniary 
advantage/, assured or prospective, 
would induce us to engage or oontinue 
in business with drinking men. Final- 
ly the candle of our patience burned to 
the socket and expired on the 12th of 
December, Wi •» we stepped down from 
the editorial chair and out of the Trib- 
une office. Our defection seems to have 
proved fatal to the paper, wherea', we 
are not astonished, for when we u.. C\

The faUewing gentlemen were 
appointed a committee on resolutions — 
John D. Miller, Richard Stevens, S. C. 
Wedding, ). A. Park and 0. P. 
who reported the following 


1. That we heartily approve the 
of the Republican Executive Committee 
of the State in calling a State convention 
lo meet at Louisville on tbe 17th day of 
May, 1875. to nominate candidates for 
Governor, Lieutenant-Governor, and a full 
State ticket 

2. That we are in favor of retrench- 
ment and reform in the administration of 
Stale and county affairs, thereby causing 
the burden of taxation to fall as light sa 
possible on the great laboring masses of 
ttie L -ate, whov#Uw6it*.- Ttm h ~»» 
the great bulk of ite taxes. 

3. That the fees of all the Bute and 
county officers waa increased about 33, 
per cent during the war, or soon thereaf- 
ter, on account of the'great difference be- 
tween gold and greenbacks: that difference 
doea not now exist, therefore we are for 
a modification or a repeal of that law, 
placing tbe fees at or near what they were 
before tbe war. 

4. That we are opposed to the Supple- 
mental Civil Rights Bill, believing that 

would be detrimental lo the 
of the black race, a id aub- 
of the beat interest* of the white 
virtually destroying tbe free school 
systems of both white and black, and 
would be (he entering wedge for a war of 
races, acting most ruinous to the black 
and a great drawback to the white race. 
We believe in wholesome lawa by the 
general government bearing upon all 
alike, and let race and nationality take 
care of themselves, subject to the law of 
the respective States. 
5. That we are in favor of a convention to 
make a new constitution for the State. 

6. That tbe decision of tbe contesting 
board in the Jones-Cochran case indicatea 
a apirit of reform and and respect for law 
Jn high places, long prayed for by all good

Ma Cbaibmaw a!*i> FzLtow-crnzews: 
Had you not mentioned my name in con 
nectioo with a higb office, I would have 
remained eilent, While I feel profound- 
ly grateful for tbe honor conferred upon 
me, I must aay that I have no official as- 
pirations. I deaire to work in the inter- 
est of the Republican party, for I believe 
its principles alone can perpetuate our 
liberties We want harmony in our ranks; 
we want all our forces out; we want the 
fact made known that we are neither 
dead or asleep. The Democratic party 
ia flushed with victory, bnt it will prove a 
meteor's glare, "A moment bright then 
fade away."' The victorv over which 
Democrats rejoice. waa obtained aimply by 
Democrats voting and Republicans not vo- 
ting. lethereaDemocrath ere that believee 
Massachusetts' ia a Democratic State? 
If there ia one here, I must my that he 
ovgbt to belong to the church— for he ie 
certainly a great believer. No intelli- 
gent man will inaiat that State has gone 
back on principles to which she baa ad- 
hered with such fidelity through so many 
years But Butler waa her evil star. Not- 
withstanding his giant intellect he haa 
made himself odious, and hia candidacy 
for Governor of Maesochusetts resulted as 
waa anticipated by all well informed Re- 
publicans There haa been no gain by 
tbe Democrats in numbers. Their vie-, 
torv ia temporary and haa been brought 
about by the lethargy Of Republicans 
There ia* nothing to discourage Republi 
eane. If you want wholesome lawa; if 
you want fidelity in high places; if you 
want prosperity let there be as nearly 
an equilibrium effected beet ween 

Crties. For years the Republican party 
a- had entire control of tlw» oKetm it 
the nation. And -while I am reawy to ad- 
mit that there bad been more or 
motion In high places, that bad lawa have 
been enacted, ahd that bad men have 
been confided with important trusts, atill 
it ia known to all men that it ia easier to 
find fault than to do better. Democrats 
moat now foreshadow their policy, in- 
stead of finding fault with us; they mast 
act — must perform— instead of promise 
and theorize. We now have thia advan- 
tage. The Repnpliean party ia a party 
of progress. Its main object ia to better 
of the people, especially the 
great laboring masses. They should be 
protected. They are the backbone of the 
nation, and their interests should be 
watched with sleepless vigilance. Taxee 
should be lessened. The fees of state of- 
ficers should be curtailed. They were ad- 
vanced about thirty-three and a third per 
cent during the war, in consequence of 
the great difference between greenb* 
and gold, and as that thing no longer 
iata, fees should likewise be reduced. 

The action of the contesting board in 
the Jonca-Coobran case ahowa a apirit of 
reform. There have been unpleasant 
things of like nature in Arkanaaa and 
Louiaiana which were condemned by 
all Democrats, and I believe the party 
till not abandon its position. We are. all 
a teres ted in the great financial question, 
ind it it hoped that Congress will do 
thing that will relieve tbe pressure 
crushing out the greet northwest 
Reform and retrenchment should be our 
watchword. We see that there ia a ten- 
dency among some officials to enrich 
themselves instead of discharging their 
duties Such things will exist, but we 
should be careful to select our ableat and 
truest men. Honeaty with moderate abil- 
ity ia more desirable in high places than 
great ability without honeaty. 

Fellow-citizena, let us be up and doing. 
We must have the next President, and 1 
feel aura that the moch rejoicing of Demo- 
crats will hare a tendency to bring oar 
men out We have lost none. We have 
them all yet, and all we have to do to in-

In caw it is desirable tpvapply the ma- 
nure from the stables on land designed to 
be pastured the following season, I have 
adopted a course which 1 shall describe 
with great satisfaction. The annual 
weeds are many of them earlier than the 
grass.-, mid il they are allowed, by keep- 
ing og the alock until a late turning out 
season, to grow aud set lor seeding, aud 
are then mowed down and are allowed to 
lemain on the ground as mulch, the grass, 
j though some ol it may have been cbop> 
i ped off in cutting the weeds, will outgrow 
I the weeds, and it" growth being promoted 
| by the mulc-b, but that applied from the 
; st-ib!es and that from the mown weeds, 
| will develop astonishingly, and the yield 
of pasturage will lie very satisfactory. 
Manure applied in this wav. on land to 
be pastured a rear or more before it is to 
be turned in, will lie found vastly more 
profitable than that turned in the first 
spring after it has been applied.— [Cor. 

Among tbe grasses which have been 
fully tested and found well suited to the 
Southern climate, orchard grass occupies 
quite a prominent position. Though 
somewhat coarse if cut when in flower, it 
makes most excellent hay. It will stand 
almost any amount of drouth without in- 
jury, and shade does not hurt it. This 
gives it a peculiar value as a pasture 
grass; it will flourish among trees whose

Atlanta Herald, 22d. 

Yesterday morning, at an early hour, 
a report spread, like fire in a prairie, that 
a man had committed suicide at his 
room in (he Btiljrci building, on Alabama 
street. A Herald reporter very soon 
made his way lo the door of the room, 
on third lloor, where a crowd had already 
collected. Entering the bed room, which 
was about 12 by 14, with a small side 
room, we found the dead body lyiug just 
to the. right of the entrance, the feet ex- 
tending out nearly in front of the door, 
with the legs slightly drawn tip, and the 
body lying on its left side, at an angle ol 
about forty five degrees from the wall. 
The head rested upag:iinst the base-board 
: n a pool of blood, the facp inclined a 
i'.tle to tbe left side, with the left eye 
ball forced almost from its socket, aud 
looking verv blue; the right eye in uot 
quite so l.a.l a fix: the mouth wide open, 
and clogged with blood. The hands 
were clasping a C'olt'a revolver, with one 
chamber empty. The leli hand held the 
barrel-of the pistol — which was about 
ten or twelve inches from the mouth, and 
pointing directly toward it— while the 
right loosely grasped the haudle of the 
pistol, as if the trigger had been pulled 
with tbe thumb. The body was dressed 
in plain clothing, which" the deceased 
had prepared before li»" 1, «* will ba seen 
irom the documents which he left behind. 
A cape overeoat was thrown loosely over 
the body, which was resting partly on it 
The loot cf tbe bedstead was toward the 
body. There were various piece* of tol- 
erable nc4t furniture iu the room, inclu- 
ding a bureau, all of which he has dis- 
posed of in the bequest. The coal fire in 
the grate had nearly burned out. 


Before cammitting the act the deceased 
had evidently got up, took a bath, dressed 
himself iu theold clothes pre paied for the 
occasion, placed the rug on the floor, just 
to the right and nearly in front of the en- 
trance, then c In sped the barrel of the pis- 
tol in his left hand, with the muzzle in 
his mouth, while he pulled the trigger 
with the thumb of the right hand, then 
fell to the floor, resting on his left side. 
The ball did not pass out, but evideutly 
ranged up through the brain. There is no 
doubt but that he diet! without a struggle, 
being killed instantly. 


The first notice of the tragedy was 
geven by Edmund Hardy, a porter for the 
Southern Life Insurance Company, whose 
office is in the ground floor of the same 
building. Edmund Hardy interviewed, 
says: "1 have attended to Col Anderson's 
room ever since he has been rooming 
there. I was up in his room lata yester- 
tcrday evening and he was iu bed. When 
I went to his room be told me there was 
no use of coming in, as there was nothing 
| to do. I went up to bis room this morn- 
ing about 9 o'clock to carry a bucket of 
water, as usual, and I sat the bucket of 
water down and unlocked the door when 
I saw him laying right at the door. I 
did not know but that he was drunk, al- 
though I never knew him to take a 
drink, and when 1 touched him I found 
that he was stiff, and then I saw the pis- 
tol in his hands. Then Iran downstairs 
into the insurance office and told Mr. 
Helium aud his son, and Mr. Haralson.

^ -arggioli, some to hare been born 
in Kentucky, and by others to be a native 
of Xew York State. However, I his much 
is well authenticated t In 1842 he came 
lo Augusta, jtiaV, when a young man. 
There he lived for many years, filling the 
place of sheriff of Kichmond county for 
two or three years. Ascending the lad- 
der still higher, when Hon. George W. 
Crawlord was elected Governor, he made 
deceased his piu^s* aecretarjf. Filling 
this jtosition for tour years, he went to 

ployment, and being a man who had been 
subjected to a great many misfortunes 
during his life, descending from wealth 
and power to poverty and want, he gave 
way to the impulses of his nature, and as 
many as nine times attempted to take his 
own life. Atone time be attempted sui- 
cide by cutting the femoral vein in his 
left thigh and bled until he fainted. 

At another time he cut the humeral 
vein in his left arm, intending to cut the 
artery in this, as in the former instance. 
He bled this time until he fainted from 
loss of blood. At another time he at- 
tempted to cut his throat, but failed to 
cut sufficiently to end his life, but left a 
scar which lasted all his life. At anoth- 
er time he put the muzzle of a loaded 
pistol in his mouth, and pulled the trig- 
ger, but it failed to go off, the cap only 
bursting At another time he took two 
ounces tincture aconite, but vomited it 
up. At another time he took two ounces 
of McMunn's elixir of laudanum, which 
he also threw up. He has been heard to 
say that he has made nine attempts at 
suicide. But it remained for this last, 
the tenth attempt, yesterday morning, 
to prove the successful one, which, for 
coolness of deliberation and minuteness 
of execufion, in every particular, stands 


8ome three months ago Colonel Ander- 
son gave as many as two different parties 
here in Atlanta to understand that he 
was some kind of a Government detective 
for this city Rut he that as it may, he 
baa received maney and assistance from 
several parties in Atlanta, nevertheless 
was in very straightened circumstance*. 
About three months- ago Dr. John M. 
Johnson, of this city, a practicing pbysi- 
cian"in partnership with Dr. H. V. M. 
Miller, look it upon himself to intercede 
with General Robert Toonibs iu behalf 
of Colonel Anderson, and wrote him a 
letter upon the subject . Very soon Gen- 
eral Toombs came to tbe city, and in 
room 64 of the Kimball House, one night, 
gave Colonel Anderson a written draft on 
Austell's bank for $ 100. This General 
Toombs presented to Colonel Anderson 
just as Colonel jXicholls, who then kept 
the hotel, stepped into the room, with 
the remark, "Here, take it, I don't want 
any due-bill." Colonel Nicholls says 
after Colonel Anderson left, that General 
Toombs slated that he was an old politic- 
al friend, aud he bad been furnishing 
him money for some time. 


About this time Gen. Toombs entered 
into some kind of an arrangement with 
Col. Anderson, which unfortunately has 
been misstated or misconstrued on both 

Col. Anderson informed some of his 
friends that Gen. Toombs bad employed 
him for one vear as his agent in Atlanta 
at a salary of $125 per month. That he 
was to look up authorities, witnesses &c., 
and attend to other matters for Gen. 
Toombs here in this city. Others state 
that Gen. Toombs only employed him 
for a specified time, or until he could get 
other employment; and that when Gen. 
Toombs employed him, he aaked Col. 
Anderson how much it would take to 
support him as a gentleman; when Col. 
Anderson replied, that he thought |125 a 
month would be sufficient 

There are many who stale that there is 
no doubt but what Gen' Toombs acted in 
bad faith witli Col. A., for it was certain 
that he understood by the contract that 
he was employed for a year. However, 
soon after this, Col. Anderson drew a 
draft on Gen. Toombs, at Washington, 
Wilkes countv, for sixty two dollars and 
Whalf, •raM^ra.Wwl -I n ub u ut w 
month he drew again for $125 which 
Mr. Jerry Lynch indorsed, and was paid

There is hardly aa enthusiast on tbe 
subject of poultry who does not at first 
endaavor to keep several varieties He 
visits an exbibiuou, or the yards of some 
extensive dealer, and admiring various 
breeds, purchases some of each, wilhout 
considering whether he has accommoda- 
tions enough for all, and underestimating 
the amount of time required to manage 
them perfectly. We would say to all be- 
ginners, do not attempt to keep more than

who resides on Harris street, says that 
CoL Anderson called at her house on Sun- 
day night, and got an old shirt of his 
which he had once given her when he 
bought half a dozen new ones. He res 
mained at her house nntil about nine 
o'clock, and when he left he carried away 
the old shirt in a bundle. Evidently he 
told her of his intentions She said that 
when she brought his clothes home last 
Weduesdav, be said something to the 
effect that if she ever found him dead in 
his old clothes, he wanted her to let him 
remain so; and then told her she must 
pack up his things in the leather trunk, 
if anything happened, and send them to 
New York.

These were left among his friends, one

Yesterday morning Col. Henry D. Capers

From that moment Col. Anderson was 
a changed man. A lengthy and bitter 
correspondence between him and Gen. 
Toombs ensued. 

Col. Anderson frequently spoke to sev- 
eral of his friends about taking his life, 
and really the idea was presented to Gen. 
Toombs in the first instance, which elic- 
ited his aid in order to prevent it if pos- 
sible. But the stern band of inexorable 
fate was working. Col. Anderson's wons 
ted disposition was wrought up to the 
proper degree, when yesterday morning, 
after mature deliberation and with pre 
meditation, he placed the muzzle of the

To Dr. J. M. Johnw. 

My Dear Sir— Thoughtfully, even 
cheerfully, I obey the stern fiat ot'irresist- 
ahle circumstances, without discussion 
and without murmur. My remarkable 
vigor aud acknowledged capacities seem 
utterly unavailable for ordinary pur- 
po-es. Be it eo. 

I hare much to be thankful for to your- 
self and other personal friends, and feel 
no enmity or hatred against any pian. 
1 kope Toombs will so far vindicate him- 
self as to proieel Jerry Lynch from the 
consequences of a protett which could not 
have been anticipated. 

To-morrow morning I intend to place 
the muzzle of my pistol in my mouth 
and pull the trigger. I thus bluutly state 
my intention in order to avoid, if possible, 
a "coroners 'quest," or legal investigation. 

I shall drest myself, after bathing as 
usual, in a suit of old clothes, good enough 
I opine, for the purpose in view. My 
better clothes will be of use to my son. 
I hope to be luried aa I fall. 

You will tiad in my table drawer fur- 
ther communications aud requests. 

I enclose liny odd dollars, to go towards 
funeral expenses, and to express my 
trunk to New York. 

Regretting ;he absence of Dr. Miller, 
please rememlier me to him, and present 
mv photograph herewith inclosed. Fare- 
well, my frietd. S. I. Anderson.

To my son, Sam. J. Anderson, all such 
of my best clothing and effects as can be 
pac ked in my sole-leather V'tnk. 

I would request Dr. Orme 


Understanding that Col. Capers was 
familiar with certain antecedent facts con- 
nected with Mr. Anderson's late life, a 
Herald reporter called at bis office to 
gather such information aa he might be 
able to give. 

Reporter — Do you know Mr. Anderson, 
w b * in-.] ttuic-ij^ tUia morning * 

Col. Capers— I do-, and was introdoced 
to Mr. Anderson since my recent arrival 
iu your city, who impressed me as being 
a moody, melodramatic person. I saw 
him, among other gentlemen, at General 
Toomb's room, at the Kimball House, 
some two weeks ago. 

Reporter — Do you know anything 
about some protest papers picked'up in 
the Kimball House? 

Col. C— Although these should be 
private matters, yet with the publicity 
with which these papers were handed me, 
I suppose, to your acuieness, have become 
about as notorious as other matters in 
Atlanta. The papers were given lo the 
cashier of the hotel, or the cleric, who 
handed them to Mr. Anderson the 

Reporter— What were these papers? 

Col. C. — I don't know, more than 
Mr. A. asked for a protested draft of 
at the desk in the Kimball U 
' se pa t 

Aeporier — W here 

Col. C — Right there in the center of 
the rotunda or vestibule, and my atten- 
tion was called to them by the clerk. 

Reporter — If you have no objections, 
please state to me upon whom this draft 
was drawn and by whom. 

Coi. C— Mr. Anderson informed me 
that it was his draft, and drawn ou Gen. 
Toombs in favor of Mr. Lynch, of this 
city. My dear sir. I do not wish to be 
misunderstood, nor would I have for any 
consideration any misrepresentations 
made. I am sure from my personal 
knowledge that General Toombs had dis- 
bursed in a lavishly generous manner bis 
benefaclions to Mr. Anderson, who was 
introduced to him by Dr. J. M. Johnson, 
of vour city. 

Reporter — Do you know whether there 
was a written contract betweeu Mr. An- 
derson and General Toombs? 

Col.C. — I know upon the statement of 
General Toombs, who I know to be 
truthful man, and above a mean act, that 
there never was auy written, parol, ex- 
pressed or implied contract between him 
and Mr. Anderson for more than a lim- 
ited time, in which he (Anderson) should 
cek employment, by which to support 
limself. Gen. Toombs thought sufficient 


time had expired and protested bis draft, 
after having paid his drafts for near $300. 
Gen. Toombs assured me that he consid- 
ered this money as a free gift, and for 
which he had received no benefits what- 

Reporter — What is your opinion about 
suicides in general.? 

Col. C. — I do not believe that any sane 
man would commit suicide. 1 can un- 
derstand the suicide of Socrates when the 
Athenians decreed it, but I am assured 
in my mind tbat any person who commits 
suicide to get rid of the troubles of this 
world lias not sufficient mind to meet 

Mr. W. L. Hunt, clerk in the Kimball 
House, corroborated Col. Capers, regard- 
ing the finding af tbe draft, and says that 
it was taken from his pigeon-hole in the 
key-rack; and inquired of Col. Capers 
about it, when he was told Col. Anderson 
hail got it. 

We came near forgetting to mention 
that only $54 40 was found in Col. An- 
derson's room, and that was found by Dr. 
Johnson in a table-drawer, sealed up in 
an envelope with the letter addressed to 
him. With this he paid the funeral ex- 
penses, which took place yesterday after- 
noon at half-past 4 o'clock. He was 
buried in the cemetery. 

The following document was 

man ofthisctty, whose r 
We give it verbatim: 


I, Samuel J. Anderson, in the sixty- 
fourth year of my age, but in remarkable 
enjoyment of all my facilities of mind and 
body— in full view of all the responsibil- 
ities of a voluntary death, and prompted 
by a due respect for the feelings, opinions 
and prejudices of ihe living — beg leave, 
respectfully, to submit the following ob- 

First, as to the bad influence, or bad 
example of suicide. All the agents of 
modern civilization have universally and 
justly denounced it; and they have 
hedged against it by appeals to human 
fears and superstitions, aa well as by all 
the appliances of education. To this 
course I shall certainly take no exception. 
But each case must, at last, stand upon, 
and be judged upon, its own causes, ex- 
cuses or merits — whether committed un- 
der the influence of insanity, positive, 
partial or momentary-K>r with deliberate, 
sane and intelligent purpose. As to the 
influence of example, perhaps it may be 
over-estimated. The instinctive love of 
life, and the instinctive dread of death 
will always prove sufficient general guar- 
antees against it — will always confine the 
danger within very narrow limits, and I 
have sometimes suspected that there is 
even more danger of too few, instead of 
too many, committing the "rash act." 
Catos, and Brutii, and Zenos, and Cum- 
mings are never very numerous! 

I know of no one who can be injured 
or much affected by my death at present 
Even a more valuable man khan myself 
is soon forgotten. 

I have no fears for the ftitnre. I be- 
lieve in the right I know things in tbe 
great beyond ought to be made right, and, 
therefore, I believe they will be. How, 
or by what means, I do not propose to 
guess. This, however, constitutes my 
simple faith. I believe in virtue and 
practical morality, in their most enlarged 
sense — to do all the good in our power, 
and to prevent all the evil we can. I be- 
lieve in knowledge, in truth, in science, 
and am not inclined to indulge in mere 
beliefs. I believe in experience and ob- 
servation, and tbeir natural and positive 
results, and attach but little importance 
to mere heresay evidence on any subject 
"Nothing is easier than living," except 
to lie under mistake. Mere probabilities 
ought to be bandied with caution; im- 
probabilities are unworthy of respect, and 
can only be established by incontrover- 
tible testimony. Religion or religions 
belief, without truthfulness and practical 
morality, is a delusion and a snare— the 
shadow without the substance. One is 
hollow and deceptive, the other solid 
and reliable. One resembles sounding 
brass, the oilier refined gold. One is 
fluctuating as incontrovertable currency, 
the oilier fixed and stable. 

Such views as mine, although none 
may doubt their being honestly enter- 
tained, have prevented my becoming 
what is useful in the society where my 
lot has been cost; yet I am so constituted 
as to be incapable of dissimulation. 

I have been what tbe world calls un 
fortunate. 1 have often failed iu my best 
efforts. I have enjoyed myself almost 
wonderful health of body and mind. 
With a very few exceptions, I hare been 
enabled, under extraordinary trials, to 
preserve a serene cheerfulness. I am 
cheerful even now. But I find myself at 
this juncture, with absolute want, or a 
miserabld state of dependence, staring 
me in the face. I do uot perceive bow I 
can make myself useful, or contribute to 
the advancement or happiness of others. 
1 have calmly surveyed the field. More- 
over, 1 have j'ist at thia p#riod met witb 
a severe aud shocking disappointment, 
which strikes me like a fatal blow. 
When the shock first came, tbe first im- 
pulse was one of resentment, but reflec- 
tion enabled me to conquer it 

At last I have come to the conclusion 
that a further struggle is hardly worth 

"After life's Btfal fever ha sleeps well."

In regard to great public affairs, 1 
shall notice only one. I regret that 1 
shall not be permitted to participate in 
the National Centennial celebration at 
PhifaifelpLia in 1K76. I hao !;opfl u> 
participate in it 1 regard it sound poli 
cy for all the Southern .States to partici- 
pate in il zealously and patriotically. 
Instead of listening to particular individ- 
uals, who are panting and puffing over 
the "Lost Cause," would it not be more 
wise and more manly to understand and 
acquiesce in its philosophy? Daniel 
Webster, in one ofhis orations, speaking 
of the States and the Union, said: 'They 
are distinct as the wares, but one as the 
sea." During tbe present century, at 
any rate, it is not probable that any im- 
portant change can be, or ought to be, 
effected in tbe existence of the relations 
of the States Early, perhaps, in the 
twentieth century, with an hundred mil- 
lions of population, and fifty States, some 
important political and economical 
chauges may become imperative. 

I had hoped to participate in the grand 
Centennial, to express, in some way or 
other, the deep interest I feel, and always 
felt, in the progress aud emancipation of 
mankind. Progress and order should 
march hand in baud, although they do 
not always appear, to our limited view, 
to keep pace with each other. When 
the sanguine but mighty mind, tbe fears 
less spirit of Tom Paine, after he had im- 
parted to the American revolution its 
vital impulse, sent forth his "Rights of 
Man," in reply lo Edmund Burke, he evi- 
dently anticipated a more rapid and clear- 
ly defined progress than has been real- 
ized. Peace to his ashes. Eternity to 
his memory. The first crop of the seed 
which his* hand so vigorously planted 
has brought forth good fruit, and the 
next crop will be in due proportion to 
the first And at the grand Centennial, 
when orators are dilating on the glorious 
historical group; when they ars drawing 
their word pictures to be photographed 
all over the world; when they are crowd- 
ing tha sun's rays upon the portraits of 
Washington, and Franklin, and Jeffer- 
son, and their illustrious compeers, Tom 
Paine, tbe mechanic, tbe poet, the finan- 
cier, the soldier, the statesman, and the 
philosopher, will rise up and stand in the 
foreground, whether they welcome him 
or not. The author of "Common Sense," 
the "Crisis," the "Rights of Man," and 
the best slandered man in tbe history of 
the world, will be sure \o be there. The 
man whose broad motto was— and be 
lived by it — "The world is my country, 
and to do good my religion," will be sure 
to be there. S. J. A.

Thus ends the career of a man who 
more reminds us in his life of Aaron 
Burr than any one we can imagine. He 
was undoubtedly a genius, as his writing. 

The Legislature of Oregon i 
that Commonwealth the voluntary 
of man aad wife thtll work the legal efees of 
divorce. Indiana hat hitherto enjoyed the 
distination of possessing the broad eat and 
smoothest highways of escape from coaaahial 
weariness er woe which were open to that 
melancholy and endlett procession of fugi- 
tives. She has greatly increased her transieaf 
population, tbe revenue of bar boardinghoatet 
and attorneys, and the liveliness of her local 
newspapers, by tbe liberality of her statutory 
provisions on ihie point. Bat this eminence 
it now lost on her, nor can she regain it with- 
out adopting the, simple and comprehenaiv* 
system put ia force by the Oregeataai. It is 
diffieul indeed to imagine a further timplia* 
cation of the process. When a husband can 
divorce himself by patting on his hat aad 
going roaad the corner, or a wife by yoking 
up the oxen aad going to vitit her mother, 
without legal fees, citations, notloea, or other 
technical formalities, all hat beaa doa* for 
matrimonial malcontent* whith it is 
to do. Thit enlightened and generoo* 
latioa will doubtless occasion a large accession 
of population to the State. Statistics signify 
that more women than mea seek divorces, aad 
as (he newly -diroroed female it obeerved to b* 
e-.pooi.illy sensitive and responsive lo good 
offers, it may be tbat the Oregoniaa Coelebs 
have bit upon thit expedient for the purpose 
of decoy iog wives to them. Women are very 
scarco in these frontier regions. It ha* been 
affirmed, ramarks the Kew Tork World, that 
when a New England school-mistreat arrives 
in an Oregon town the it watted upon by the
