The following snake story from
the Covington Enterprise is about
the snakiest one we ever read. Hers
‘Yonng Newton’ dropped in onr
office yesterday and gave us the par
ticulars ot a difficulty he witnessed
between a large rattlesnake and a
cat. The snake was trying to get
through a fenoe on Duel!
plantation, when a large cat, sup-
posd to belong to Mr. Thomas Pet
ty, made an attack upon the serpent.
After the cat had caught the snake
with its teeth and drew it back, it
looked as if it wub dead. The cat
immediately began to eat the reptile,
and at the first entrance of the cat’s
teeth in the snake’s flesh, it revived,
and struok the cat in the mouth,
causing instant death. After this,
tho snake swallowed ths cat and en
deavored to travel. ‘Young Newton’
then killed the snake and cut it open,
finding the cat, supposed to be in-
stantljr killed, and was astounded to
te see it crawl ont and devour the

Washington, May 28.
The circumstances attending tho
passage of the Potter resolutions to
investigate theulledged frauds iu the
Presidential election of 1876 iu the
States of Louisiana and Florida, to
gether with the subsequent declara
tions of many influential Democratic
politicians aad journalists, evidence
;hut if both houses of the Forty-
sixth Congress are Democratic, the
majority intend to oust President
Hayes and inaugurate Mr. Tilden.
The title of President Hayes was
settled irrevocably by the Forty-
fourth Congress iu theaetcreatingthe
Electoral Commission.; under wh oil
he was legally declared elected and
legally inaugurated. Tho Forty-fifth
Oougress has no more right to dis
pute his election than he has to ques
tion the title of any victorious con
testant to his scat in that body. The
Forty-sixth Congress will have no
more right to ignore him and to rec
ognize his defeated contestant, Mr.
Tilden, than Mr. Hayes would
have to Bend a tile of soldiers to the
House of Uepreseututives to unseal a
Democrat whom he might consider
to have been wrongfully Boated or
fraudulently elected. The lenders in
this desperute attempt to Mexicnniz
our institutions rely confidently up
on tho “solid youth’’ to lurnish the
bulk of the Democratic majority in
the next House ef lteprcsentativcs,
tile Senate being already secured.
Hemembering tie enoouragemeut
which the North :rn Democrats iu
1860 aud 1861 extinded to the South
ern States to secs je and the manner
in which their pr'/tolses of aid and
comfort were fulfilled, can tho South
ern people afford to join this revolu
tionary movement with the certainty
that wnen the inevitable hour of per
il oouicb they will aguin be left units
listed and uiuue to meet the storm
from the North, onoe more united by
this attempt te revive uu issue whose
settlement was forced by public opin
ion upon au unwilling Congress?
In tlie dark days of February, 1877,
when civil war over the disputed
election was imminent, und patriots
trembled for the safety of republican
institutions, the Southern members
of Cougress averted the danger by
compelling the completion of the
electoral count under the law which
botli parties in Congress had enact
But now the Representatives from
the Southern Suites, with a very few
exceptions, have joined a movement
to subvert the resit tsof their former
patriotic uction, und to remand the
country|to that anarchy from which
less than two years ago it was saved
by thoir efforts.
Grant that iu permitting the auto
nomy of all the States nnd in ap-
roiuting oitizens to office in the
South insteud of strangers, Presi
dent Hayes has but discharged his
constitutional duty, does that excuse
the Southern Representatives fur at
tempting to invalidate his title which
they establish, or will it justify them
in ’bringing the country again iu
danger of civil war in tho effort to
unseat him and inaugurate Mr. Til-
The South must now face the most
momentous crisis in its history sines
To - indorse tho recent conduct ot
(heir representatives is to admit the
truth of the oharge that the people
of the South care uothing for the
welfare of the uuiou, desire the
downfall of the republio aud would
rejoice to eee it again involved in civ
il war. If their Representatives have
not reflected their sentiments, as I
believe to be the oase, then the peo
ple of the Southern States should
take care that iu the Forty-sixth
Congress they are represented by men
who will defeat tbs disturbers ef the
pnblio peuce and prevent the Mexi-
canization of onr institutions. To
do this they may be compelled to act
independent of the Democratic par
ty. Recent events have demonstra
ted the inability ot Democratic
members of Congress to resiBt the
mandates of the caucus nnd the ter
rors of the psrty lash, the one wield
ed and the other inspired by men who
seem willing to endanger the welfare
of the conutry and the stability of
republican institutions for the sake
of revenge on political opponents
and in the hope of dividing the
“spoils of victory.”
If the democratic Representatives
of the South oould not resist the
caucus commaud to pass the Potter
resolutions, unamended aud without
debate, how will they be able in the
Forty-sixth Congress to resist a sim
ilar demand to ignore Mr. Hayes as
President and to recognize Mr. Til-
It is, theralors, the duty of the
Southern people to afford norowtling
evidence of their renewed devotion
to ths Union, in wliioh they now en
joy every right of citizenship and are
subject to no restrictions not laid up
on every citizen by sending Repre
sentatives to the Party-sixth Con
gress pledged to resist at all hazards
the revolutionary schemes of the
mischief makers who seem to have
gained control of ths Honse of Rep
resentatives of the Forty-fifth Con
gress. To this end the people in ev
ery district Bbottld meot publicly, or
ganize and resolve to the support of
no person for Congress who has giv
en aid to this movement, nnd who
will not pledge himself to sustain
the title of President llaycs during
the term for which he was electod,
against all attempts at his overthrow.
Only in this way can a gravo danger
to the Republic be uverted nnd con
vincing proof be given tbst the con
fidence wse not misplaced wbioli
President Hayes manifested in tho
South when he withdrew the troops
from the State Houses of South Car
olina nnd Louisiana. I have spoken
plainly and earnestly, for I feel that
1 should be unworthy to represent
the South in the Administration
ere I to remain silent now. Invi
ted to the Cabinet ns u Southern
■inn to see that justice wus done to
the South, required neither to apol
ogize for my record nor to disown
my political principles, it is my duty
now to warn the people of tlie South
of tlie danger wliioh now threatens
the country. No innn need liopo
that the schemes of the men who
have engineered tlie movement to
unseat President Hayes cun be cur
ried out without a bloody civil war.
To avert th is danger I confidently
rely upon the patriotism und honor
of the people ol my native section.

My corn begins to look splendid.
These warm nights it grows while I
am asleep—just like the intrust ou
tlu m darn little just debts you owe
—excuse me, Mr. Editnr, I don’t
know for Berlin that you owe any,
but it's a reasonable presumption,
considerin your bisneas, mid its no
disgrace, nohow. Most everybody
owes ['in from tho United States of
America down to the nmhlest indi
vidmils, of which last I mu whom. I
look upon it us a charitable act to
borrow from a man who has a sur
plus. I think a heap of Gov. James
and Gen. Anstel, and all such, and it
would greve me to Imv their money
get musty and would rust aud rot
for luck of borrowers. I sometimes
take a little j’-st to encournge ’em,
fer they are human beings, und just
as much entitled to u livin’ as the
best of ns.
Mr. Editor, its a great comfort to
me to set in my piazzor these pleas
ant evenings and look over the farm,
and smoke the pipe ol peace, und ru
minate. Ruminate upon the rise
and fall of Empires and parties and
presidents and preachers. I think
when a man bus passed the Itubioon
of life, and seen his share of trouble,
smokin' is allowable for it kinder
reconciles him to live on awhile lon
ger, nnd promotes pbilosoflc reflec
tions. 1 norer knowd a high-tam
pered man to bo fond of it. Old
Aunt Patience told me she Imd
been smokin, foi 50 years, und 1
beard her advisin’ Mrs Arp to try it
awhile, for «cz she, “missus, it makes
a body so quiet and peaceable.” But
my wife, you know, was raised a
Methodist, and they are fernent it
Just like all other denominations,
tlisy make n close run on sum tilings,

Pin now livin’ in a Methodist settle

Felton’s chapel, and they are a good
people around me, and I’ve been won- ,
Ileyin how tile aocor kept 'oni all so tlie issannces or the Son. John
strait while he wussn far away. Itdoes
look like u pity to see his mcetin
house closed every .Sunday and may
be, when lie comes heme uguin, a
kind providence will conclude to let
him abide with his dock. But then,
ou tlio other baud, it muy bo more
important tor tlie doo'or to use his
influence with the rascals at Wush-
ingten to keep cm from stenlin and
lyiu, and at tlie same lime attend to
our political intrust und continue to
send us reliable garden seed, it inay
be all for the best. The good Lord
knows, I don’t. Therefore I haven’t
made up my mind about sendin him
back again. You see there is Gen.
Wefford, who is my friend, und he
rnout want to go, und he built a finer
meetiu’ liouso than anybody, aud
anybody is welcome to preach in it
who is heavenly minded and a good
democrat. Tho general is uo preach
er, but then lie can run the camp
while the doctor is ruuniu’ the cross.
Then there is my friend Gus Wright,
ami lie rnout wunt to go. lie ain’t
got any meetiu’ house of his own,
bnt then he preuches ail around gen
erally, and dips ’em and washes the
saints’ feet, and so fortli lie wus a
geaeral, too, and can run the camp
and the cross both, and I always
wondered why he dident build him
a sinnygog or sumthin’. I like to see
every man work up ts the full meas
ure of his capacity. You see the
prcaoliers and tlie soldiers have got
the country sorter iu a swing, and no
other sort needent run for office till
the thing wears out. Nobody need
ent try to get ia on the eternal prin
ciples of tho Jeffersonian democracy.
Therefore, if we liav got to take ’em,
lets take the very best we can git.
Mr. Editur, I read the other day

look exactly fair to me. Can’t we
