The poets follow in the footsteps
of science, and tell us that the black
man is an unfinished piece of work.
Science has never discovered the
reason why the negro is as black as
ho is, but poetry shrewdly attributes
it to a press of business: “De Lord
made de cullud man; He made him
in de night; He made him in a hur-
ry, an’ forgot to make him white.”
So eminent a lawyer as Senator
Whyte can never accept office with
out pecuniary sacrifice. But there
are few who, hiving once entered
the Senate, ever retire except from
the force of circumstances over
which they have no control. Many
great lawyers have accepted a life of
comparative poverty rather than
forego a public CarCCT.—“Washing
The you 1:2 lady in St. Louis who
fell . p .. Vl . jin a coachman had an
unhappy experience. The father, a
German brewer, accused the girl of
intending to marry the coachman,
and such was the fact. He consid
ered the matter several days, and
then very deliberately whipped the
young man before discharging him.
The coachman’s excitement was so
great that he became insane, and
has been sent to an asylum. The
girl declares that she will enter a
Brother Haskell, “the reformed
clown,” is conducting a Methodist
revival in Amboy, Illinois. An ex-
j cited sister fainted in one of his
meetings, and he said: “Stand away,
brethren and sisters, and let the
angels come in and fan her. I feel
as if a quarter section of heaven had
caved in and all the stars were tum
bling down on me. You Christians
are like young pigs. I have to pull
your cars off to get you up to the
Gospel trough, and after you get a
taste of the glories nearly pull your
tails off to get you away.”
Dr. McKenzie: However we may
differ from the Priest as to dogma or
creed, there are many who will ask
no better usher to the presence of
the Master after life is done; and for
one, if when called by death from
earth, I were in power to select from
the many good men I have known,
the one I should prefer above all
others to lead me to the steps of the
great white throne, and show me
how and where to kneel in grateful
adoration, though I. am not of his
faith, I should choose the humble
friar of Cork, Theobald Matthew, the
Apostle of Temperance.
Apropos of the present exodus, a
good story is told by Judge Johnson,
who, with Judge Elmore, of Le
compton, constituted the territorial
judiciary of Kansas in Buchanan’s
time. Johnson says he went to visit
Judge Elmore ore bitter cold day
and found him out in the yard cut
ting wood to keep the ten or twelve
negroes he had brought with him
from his southern home warm, who
were huddled up around the fire,
and even there, nearly frozen. The
good natured master, rather than see
them suffer, attacked the wood pile
in his own person, and when spring
came hustled them off to their old
homes. It is not likely that of the
thousands of negroes now pouring
into Kansas one in ten will remain.
THE COMMON EK.
The Cincinnati “Commercial” re
marks that if one of the linchpins of
Mr. Stephens’ wheel-chair should
get loose, or the axletree break, so
that the venerable Georgian could
not get into the House again during
the present session, public interests
would not suffer to any great extent.
Mr. Murat Halstead, who ventures
upon this grim and unseemly jast,
has been galled by Mr. Stephens’
promin *- ' ——- ..bJ.'.’L
..'ith him is father to' inc"
thought. An accident to Mr. Ste-I
phens would be no new thing, but i
such a one as would deprive the
country of his services would be little
short of calamity. Mr. Stephens
must have foiled some pet scheme of
the mighty Murat and his party;
otherwise the ill-natured fling would
have had no circulation. The New
York “Herald” recently observed
that the Democratic party would be
saved from suicide by adopting, in
good faith, Mr. Stephens’ resolution.
Mr. Halstead probably wants to get
rid of the Georgia Commoner in or
der to remove one possible obstacle
to party folly and disaster.
NOT FOR KANSAS.
The people of Kansas do not
want the hordes of negroes now
moving in that direction, and, after
describing the terrible condition of
the emigrants, they excoriate the men
who precipitated the black mass
upon their soil. The Republicans
of Kansas dearly love the negro in
the South, but they are getting to
bitterly hate him in Kansas. Indeed
the people of Wyandotte have made
it a matter of the last importance to
issue a circular to the people of the
United States, protesting against the
coming of any more freedmen, un
der any circumstances. They say
that all are paupers, many are dy
ing, at least 5 per cent, have already
died, and that Kansas is the last
place on earth they should’
have sought. The circular, reciting
the alarming and distasteful facts of
the situation, winds up as follows:
We the undersigned, citizens of
Wyandotte, Kansas, denounce those
who are encouraging those people to
come to Kansas as really their worst
enemies, whatever their intentions
may be, and we call upon humane
reflecting people everywhere to use
their best efforts to check this most
disastrous movement on the part of
the negro population of the South
west, and to correct the utterly base
less and visionary idea concerning
what is before the negro emigrant in
Kansas, which seems to have taken
hold on the minds of the thousands
who are leaving their Southern
homes. We further say that the sen
timents of this protest and memorial
are those of the people o’s Kansas
without regard to party ; and we
request papers throughout the coun
try to publish this, our protest and
“J. S. Stockton, Mayor of Wyan
dotte ; Ant. Kuhls, Catholic
priest; V. J. Lane, Re. E. Cable,
Probate Judge ; N. Cree, attorney,
and a long list of other Lames.”
It is really refreshing to hear phil
anthropist Windom and his fellow
saints repudiated and by
the Republicans of Kahsas.' The
men who fostered this scheme and
deluded the poor blacks of Mississip
pi and Lousiana to inhospitable emi
gration, dire distress and
are the worst enemies of the negro,
and it required an immense amount
of personal pressure to get the truly
loyal people of Kansas to blurt out
this honest truth. - -
It is honorable to human nature
that there should be remembrance
of the dead. It would be base in
gratitude if the living men and wo
men of the South should forget the
cause of their section and ceasT to
respect the graves of valor. In JGvi
ing tribute to the' departed s.oiTcis
of our land, we do not instutMthe
Government we live under andgfe
pect henceforth to maintain, in pqace
or war, but rather do we testify by
devotion to our own brethren that
we are worthy of the highest con
fidence and trust. If we ’Ctrald
possibly be indifferent to the mar
tyrs for the faith, we would not' be
entitled to the respect of friend or
foe. The war was a dreadful ordeal.
It was costly in moral and material
values. It engendered horrible
crimes and sorrows. But it was
also filled with noble virtues and, at
the last, while deplorable of itself,
there will spring from it only ro
bust patriotism, higher aspirations
and a deathless memory of the
courage of man and the sacrifice of
woman. Besides, the soldiers rfj.be
South did not vainly die. The mar
ble shaft that records their intrepi
dity is also vocal with the true issues
of the cause for which they sur
rendered their lives and now repose
in the bivouac of death. The prin
ciples for which they contended,
unto their latest breath, have pot
been trampled into the earth so that
they perished, but rither risen
from the very tomb and becomej.be
perpetual legacy of a perfect Unbn.
i Much of the merely material fabric
of the Southern idea has gone* t*

Not one of Iler precious liber

the Providence of God, the very
means employed by the common
enemy to weaken and insult her.
have become the leverages of power
and pride undreamt of by the most
sanguine of friends and the most
relentless of antagonists. So it hap
pens at last that the Union is no
more a bond to be hated and broken,
but a bulwark of safety and power,
to be» respected and upheld at all
hazards. For this auspicious change
we are indebted to the heroes who
preserved the military glory of this
land, and to the women who z have
never permitted the survivors of war
to become oblivious of the dead
championsofa living principle. And
these noble women of the land, as the
memorable April day returns with
the procession of the seasons, bid
their countrymen put aside for a
moment all present traffic and hum
drum matte 's of a work-day world,
and unite in paying a floral tribute
to the soldiers of the spiritual armies
i of the South whose banners are furl
| ed, whose drum-beat 'is hushed,
! whose passions arestilled, whose wea
| pons,are palm leaves, whose march
j is to peaceful psalmody—the spec
j tral but immortal heroes who have
J crossed the river of transitory life to
repose in the mellow sunshine of
the life eternal.
IS THERE A DIFFERENCE ?
The telegraph has already recorded
that Mr. August Belmont, a New York
millionaire, an agent of the Roths
childs, and whilom —in solemn
mockery—Chairman of the National
Democratic Committee, had been se
riously bruised by an accident in
Central Park. A grocer’s wagon was
driven into the rich man’s carriage
and Plutus was hurt. The poor
fellow who was the cause of this re
grettable accident pleaded that he was
not to blame; that he was driving
just behind Mr. Belmont; that Mr.
Belmont’s carriage stopped sudden
ly, and thus the catastrophe was
precipitated. He had just got the
job of driving, after many months
of enforced idleness; he had wife and
children dependent upon him, and
it .was hard to go to jail. To jail he
went, however, and now, after cx-
amination, has been committed to
answer for malicious damage. Had
he run into a poor man and injured
him, would this have been the re
sult? “We fear not. Not long ago
Mr. Vanderbilt, in driving his fast
horses at break-neck speed, killed a
poor man ; but there was little or no
redress. Recently too the same gen
tleman, plunged his team into a
sleigh full of persons, and badly
bruisedaman and woman. Had Mr.
Vimderbilt been a poor man, w-ould
he have had to go to jail ? Perhaps
not; but, in the light of the fate of
the grocery wagoner, we should say
that his chances of escaping punish
ment would have been very bad.
