Southward the Northman takes

The Indian is not dying ofl and

Home of the most prominent of the
New York clergymen have recently
given their opinions as to whether or
not clergymen should smoke. Mr.
Talmage says: “Every clergyman
must settle the question for himself
according to his own conscience and
belief. But as for myself, smoking is
utterly out of the question. It is my
opinion that many clergymen who
have on their tombstone, ‘Died in the
Lord,’ might have a far more appro
priate epitaph, ‘Killed by Tobacco.”’
It is rumored that the White Re
publican League, of Alabama, is going
to petition congress to disfranchise the
colored people. Maj. W. H. Hunter,
the secretary of the league, said to a
reporter, who questioned him on the
subject the other day : "Wait until
congress is organized and ready tor
work, and then the country will hear
from us. Harrison asked us last sum
mer to keep quiet until the fall elec
tions were over, and not alarm the ne
groes. We have kept quiet, and the
fall elections are over, so we will not
keep still much longer. I am not at
liberty to make public the character
of our new movement, but congress
will hear from us early in December.”
Yesterday the south, dnijied in
mourning, paid tribute to the mem
ory of Jefferson Davis. From the
Potomac to the Kio Grande, sable
black ami emblems of mourning were
every where displayed. In the cities,
towns, villages and hamlets, and even
in country homes, the southern pen
pie paused in their pursuits ami avo
cation.-, and uttered lametations over
the open grave of the leader oi the
Lost Cause. The distinguished dead
was embalmed afresh in the love ami
hearts ot his countrymen. Words of
prais-' and high eulogy fell from the
trembling lips of southern orators.
While expressing no disloyalty to the
union—lor the south is loyal to the
constitution—burning words of elo
quence portrayed the high character,
and the noble traits of tlie man who
suffered so much for the southern
people. No man was nearer the
masses, or possessed in a more eminent
and enduring degree the love of his
His grave, yesterday, was a tied of
flowers. The prayers of a whole peo

daughter. It was a tribute—such
tribute as is rarely paid to the dead.
Jeff Davis belonged to the south, but
ids fame is not hounded by geograph
cal lines. It extends far beyond the
confines of the American continent.
It will till a conspicuous and hono
rable place in the world’s history.
The south need not be—nor is she—
ashamed of her leaders They were
the peers of the proudest and most
gifted. And Jeff Davis stood at their

A force of at lesat 1,000 men went to
work several days ago on the road
and the number is constantly increas
ing, “if we can get them,” said one
of the road’s officials, Thursday, “we
will have 11,000 men at work on the

with this large force of workmen, we
do not expect to have the road built

Confirmed by the Senate.
Washini.ton, Dec. 10.—The Sen
ate this afternoon confirmed the fol
lowing nominations: Robert I’. Por

dent of the census: Lewis A. Groff
of Nebraska, to lie commissioner of
the general laud office ; William M.
Stone of Iowa, assitant commissioner
of the general land office; James M.

The Chaplain’s Prayer.
Yesterday morning when emigre;
met, the blind chaplain, Mr. Milium
prayed as follows:

sorrow, Rachel weeping for her chil

cause they are not; fathers for their
first-born, the pride and stay of their
future years; children, their parents,
and millions sit cold in the atmosphere
of death, mourning the departure
from earth of a man dear to their
hearts, who had reached the term of
fourscore years. Grant that the
solemn mystery of death, the common
heritage of us all, the meaning of
which all must know ere long, may
soften and heal our hearts and feeling
into the noble gentleness of the golden
text uttered by the most conspicuous
man of the century, in whom the ten
derness of heart made greatness of
station and character more ^illustrious,
“Charity for all! Malice for none.’

The article on Jefferson Davis,
which appeared yesterday in the chief
republican organ in this city, mu.-.t
have caused melancholy reflections in
the minds of those leaders who cherish
the memory of the journal’s character
when Horace Greelv was its editor.
It was nearly twenty-five years ago,
and while the passions of the civil war
were yet at white heat, that Mr. Greely
went to Richmond and wrote his name
as sureity on Jefferson Dav.s’s bail
bond, because his honest, manly soul
was stirred to indignation by the inju

Sr. Loris Mo., December fi.—This
morning, Messrs, l’owderly, Wright
and Beaumont, representing the
Labor, met the demands of the com
mittee ot the Farmers’and Laborers’
union mid the basis of a federation
between the farmers and Knights was
agreed upon. Then it was agreed
that the farmers should appoint a
legislative committee of two to act in
conjunction with a legislative com
mittee of the knights at Washington
to secure legislation in accordance
with the views of both bodies. A
committee on platform was agreed
upon, upon land, money and trans
portation reform, and an understand
ing arrived at by which each organi
zation will assist the other in every
possible way- The executive officer
of the two organizations will form
central council to consult from time
to time upon all matters of joint in
terest. The various farmers’ bodies
have agreed upon a plan of consoli
dation which will, as soon as necessary
references can be had to various state
organizations, result in bringing about
an absolute union in one body. It is
probable that in time the knights will
also join the farmers in actual union.
