What a lamentable picture the sub joined letter to the New York Herald presents, and what a contrast the South will show in her old men. We are drawn to our old men by their counsels of peace, love, good-will, forgiveness, and the desire for reconciliation : OUlt OLD MEN CIIURCH MEMBERS. To the Editor of the Herald: —lt is a remarkable aud lamentable fact that the most relentless haters of the South, the bitterest enemies of peace and brotherly love aud of real and true union of heart and spirit of the people of our whole country are to be found among our old men who are church members. The hardest expressions of hate come from these old men church members. The most determined words of perpetual ani mosity fall from the lips of these old men church members. These are not only facts, sad facts, but sad commentaries upon human life. If there is a time in life when it would seem that the human soul should bo capable of soaring above the evil passions of vengeance and hate, when the human voice should seem soft est and most earnest in pleading the cause of peace aud harmony, that time would seem to be in the quiet.evening of life. If there is a time in life when it would seem that the surging passions of our nature should be quenched with the waters of for getfulness, when the harsh angles of the old Adam within us should be smoothed and rounded into the the grace and gen tleness of Christian Immunity, that time would seem to be when the shadows gath er in the decliue of life. If not then, when? If not when the hair is whitened, the eye grown dim, the step is feeble and the frame has become wasted and frail ; if not when the faint body still lingers here while the spirit is almost there ; if not then, when ? Of all, the greatest of these is “ charity” saith the Lord not that charity that simply giveth to the poor, but that charity which opens the portals of the heart and takes in those that it is our duty to love and forgive. Genevieve. FRANKLIN’S EPITAPH. We don’t know that anything more ex quisitely touching can be found in the whole domain of tepulchralia than the well known epitaph on our celebrated printer. Although familiar to every one, it will still bear transcription : “ The body of Benjamin Franklin, Printer, (Like the cover of an old book, Its contents torn out, And utript ot its lettering and gilding) Lies here food for worms. Yet the work shall not be lost, For it will (as he believed) appear once more In anew And more beautiful edition. Corrected and amended By The Author.” It In the biographies of Franklin we are informed that this epitaph was “ written by him many years previous to his death This event took place in 1790 —a date which it is well to remember in the fol lowing attempt to ascertain how far the writer may have been indebted to earlier epitaph's of a similar technical character, or to collect the imitations ef which it, in Its turn, may have been the begetter, p Stephen Collett— alias lteuben Percy, aUut Thomas llyerley—in his Belies of literature, Bvo, 1813, cities two “epi taphs" of an earlier date, which, he thinks probably suggested the idea to Franklin : “THIS World. “Th* world's a book, writ by th’ eternal art Of the Great Maker; printed in man's heart: ”Tis falsely printed though divinely perm’d, And all the errata will appear at the’ end." •‘The rporbre a printing-house, our tcords, our WCV thoughts. Our deeds are eharacters of several sizes; Each soul is a compere’tor of whose faults The Invites are correctors; heaven revises : Bcath is the common press, from whence being f driven, We re gather'd, sheet by sheet, and bound for heuveu." Now, these so-called epitaphs are ac tually, we need hardly remind the reader, excerpts from JJirine b'aneie of Francis tjuarlcs (12mo, lt!87, lib. iv. 3 and 35.) with certain errors and alterations of the compiler, which we have taken the liber ty of correcting by tbe originals. They contain a similar idea, it is true, hut the concluding point, which constitutes the chief beauty of Franklin's inscription, is here either absent or lacks his Itappy am plification. In conclusion, whatever claims to origi nality Franklin’s epitaph may possess— and one does not look for much in mortu ary inscriptions—it is most elegant and perfect in its composition. It is not. therefore, as an addition to it that we sub join—transcribed we do not remember from what source—tlie following techni cal summary of the character of the illus trious typographer: ••He was the * of his profession. The ‘type’ of honesty, The I of all, And although the Lv" of Death lias put .to las existence, Every of his life Is without a ||.” Zell's Monthly. BYTELEGRAPH fUOII AI.I.T'SIE WOULD. NEW YORK. Thu llebretr IVew Vein'. Unjust Libelling, iieiiteiieetl. Tin* tiiiTiight Convention. A StiTiiglilont Our Electoral Ticket. Ee.. Etc. New York, October 3.— The religious new year of the Jews, was generally cele brated in the Jewish synagogues and tem pies of New York and Brooklyn to-day. Capt. Francis L. Norton, formerly of the Cuban steamer Pioneer, yesterday caused the arrest of Messrs. Ward & Shephard, ship brokers of this city, for the alleged unjust libelling of that steamer at New York. Norton claims that the libel which was based on a mortgage claim against the vessel, was in eflect, the more effectually to enable the United States authorities to proceed against the Pioneer. David Massey, convicted of mailing in decent books, has been fined SSOO and sentenced to one year imprisonment. Albany, N. Y„ October 2.—Straight out Democrattc State Convention met to day at Martin’s Hall. Among those pre sent were K. B Miller, brother-iu-law of 11. Seymour, Hon. Levi S. Chatfield, C. B. Sykes, Jno. J. Allen, Chairman of the State Committee, Jno. A. Goodlet and Mr. Kugan of New York. The Convention was called to order by John J. Allen. Later.—The straight-out Democratic Convention nominated a full electoral ticket, including Peter Gilsey, J. A. Good let, George Sprague and Alex. Delmar. Twenty-five delegates were present. The convention has adjourned. WASHINGTON. Customs Regulations. A Problem Solved. Washington, October 3.—The British Claims Commission is again in session here. Cigars and cigarettes seized for viola tion of customs regulations which do not bring the value of the necessary stamps will be destroyed, Congress, at its last session, established a United States Court for the Western District of North Carolina, but failed to make any provision for the appointment of a United States Marshal. There could be no Court without a Marshal, aud the Marshal of the Eastern District could not act because his jurisdiction is limited to the counties not embraced in the Western District. No grand or petite jury couid be summoned without a Marshal, and no money could be drawn from the Treasury to pay the expenses of the Court, in the absence of such an officer. To meet this unexpected emergency Marshal Carrow is appointed a disbursing agent of the Department of Justice, and under this appointment has just drawn from the Treasury $20,000 dollars to pay the expenses of the court. MASSACHUSETTS. Con. Banks for Congress Fatal Accident. Charlestown, Oct. 3.—The Massu chuscetts Democrats and Liberals have nominated Qen. Banks for Congress. Rochester, October 3.—Yesterday forenoon at Lyons, Wayne county, a farm er’s team ran away, throwing the man out of the wagon and killing him. In the af ternoon a relative named Fox, drove the runaway team to the village, for the pur pose of procuring a coffin for the deceased and, in crossing the Central Railroad track a locomotive collided with the wagon and Fox and the horses were killed. The loco motive and two or three cars were thrown into a ditch. No person on the train was injured. TENNESSEE. Itailroad Accident. Knoxville, Oct. 3. —Three passenger coachesj on the mail train west on the East Tennessee, Virginia und Georgia Railroad, fell through a trestle three miles west of Greenville this morning. One brakesman was killed. Seven persons were seriously injured , twenty slightly.— No names have yet been received. GEORGIA. Radical Leaders as Sharpers. Savannah, Oct. 3.—Money sent here from Washington to pay the poll taxes of the negroes, was appropriated by the white Radical managers, who gave the negroes bogus receipts. This swindling deprived large numbers of negroes of voting. Great indignation is expressed among tbe ne groes. They also collected money from the negroes to pay poll taxes and kept it, giving same bogus receipt. PENNSVI.VANIA. Polities. Harhisburg, October 3.—Hon. W. P.

TO BE LEFT TO THE DECISION OF THE FARMERS. f IMIK question of nitcrpilhirfi and its ti'nlblu 1 destruction of the fleecy staple having, like the great Hood of old, abated, a still more momentous question involves especial consul oration at the hands of the fanners. For mam long years K. Isaacs has catered to tin* wants of the traveling public; and to the farmers, the very hone and sinew of our beloved South, he has taken special pains to make them feel at home while in the city. Hi- tallies are tilled and the usual “allowancing” F not “allowa ble.” Indeed you get w hat you call for and that without stint. Now the question i* : Will tic Fanners Support Him ? This que-lion is propounded with the eonti deuce that will he announced with that little but expressive monosylahle which is so famil iar with voting people enamored of each other —yes! Th - sturdy farmers knows too well the comfort t’f it await him at the ISAACS HOUSE. To answer otherwise than aflirmativcly to the above mentioned question. While on the subject Mr. Isaacs wishes to say that his patronage has so increased as to compel him to provide more ample accommo tions, and that he has leased large and airy rooms of Huffs new building adjoining his own. A tine bar is attached to this iiouse. K. ISAACS, Proprietor. . I'ls-1(10. Cherry Street. Wm. m. Pendleton. Walter T. Robs. PENDLETON & ROSS, (Successors to J. M. Board man.)
