The great light cavalry man of
the South, the prince of partisan
leaders, the chief of American raid-
ers, died at Memphis on Monday.
Gen. N. B. Forrest, with a limited
education as far as books were con-
cerned, but with much knowledge
of human nature and with a gen-
ius for command, he was a boni
soldier, lie always led his men,
and where the battle was heaviest
and the shot fell thickest, there
was his'chosen place. He rose to
the rank of a Lieutenant General,
and his brilliant and invaluable
services rendered to the South on
the battle field in the late, war
make tip many of the most event-
ful and impressive passages in
American history. It is not nec-
essary to recite them. Gen. For-
rest, was a Kentuckian by birth,
but a citizen of Teunesse by a long
residence in Memphis. On the
close of the war he accepted hon-
estly the situation and devoted
himself to the duties of private
life on his plantation. The disease
contracted from exposure iu the
course of his arduous military op-
erations finally supervened to put
an end to his active life. He was
one of the great men of hia day,
and friend aud foe arc forced to
recognize the fact.
The Weat.herford Time.t mentions the
death of E. l. White in its town, and
then proceeds to give him a model obit,
nary notice, saying plain out that he
killed lii.iiHHlf drinking liquor. Admits
that lie was kind-hearted, good natured,
a good man, but he drank himself to
death, lie ia held up as a warning to
It is declared by many that
when they see the sufferings of the
poorer classes which throng our
own large cities, they wonder if
there is a just and kind God.
ves, there is a kind aud just God,
hut he seem8 to have been too gbu-„
erous toward man ; He left man
free! Man was unworthy of such
a divine choice, for he selects mjs-
ery and death in the cities when
all God's land, from the Gulf- of
Mexico to the Columbia river,^n-
vites us to its life-giving breiP:
There is one single State on the
Gulf which could furnish happy
homes to ten million of our poor.
The immense wheels of the seasons
have been rolling all over this con-
tinent for many centuries, and still
the spring comes in regal befmty
and autumn richness, and not a son
of man will move out to honor
spring by picking a wild flower or
houor autunm by reaching up for
a wild grape. How many hun-
dreds of more of years nature will
wait for man to come and touch
this rich soil with a plow and gar-
ner in abundant bread, nocían
may tell; but this we know, that
the goodness falls all over Ameri-
ca, blows over in the winds, falls on
it in the dew and the rain, smiles
in the sunbeam. She has made us
a present this year with an extra
hundred millions of gold—handed
it to us in the harvest field. & re-
quires no great power of fancy; to
enable one to see along thej^anks
of our western rivers, fro$ the
Rio Grande to the springs q| the
Missouri, lromos for all, aud then
the batiks would not be as thickly
occupied as the banks ok the
Rhine. But man's folly intrudes
and destroys this picture, anji we
behold those streams flowing in a
gloomy solitude as lonely las the
inmost chamber of Etna, while all
our streets and high way
with beggars in every form of
wretchedness. When one aces the
goodness of nature poured out so
generously, when one sees spring
and summer passing in infinite
value over fertile lands for hun-
dreds of years, and then beholds
millions of starving poor, made
poor by bad government, made
poor by ignorance, made poor by
idleness, made poor by vice, the
feeling comes over the heart that
God might well call man's career
on earth a failure, and might de-
clare his stay here ended, and say,
Come now the fervent heat to dis-
solve the elements.
Stopping (lie Interest,
Daniel Webster ouct dined with
an old Boston merchant,and when
they came to the wine, a dusty old
bottle was carefully descanted by
John and passed to the host.
Taking the bottle he poured out
Mr. Webster's glass and handed it
to him. Then pouring out another
glass for himself, he held it to the
light and said:
"How do.you like it, M \ "Web-
"I think it is a line specimen oí'
"Now, can you guess what it
cost me?" said the host.
"Surely not," said Mr. Webster.
"I only know that it is excellent."
"Well, now I can tell you, for I
made a careful estimate, the other
day. When I added the interest
to the first price, I liud that it cost
me the sum of just one dollar and
twenty c nts per glass."
"Good gracious! you don't say
so/' said Mr. Webster ; and then
draining his glass he hastily pre-
sented it again, with the remark:
"Fill it up again as quck as you
can, for I want to stop that con-

False Sympathy Uh Crimínala.
In this day of mistaken philan-
thropy and diseased sentimentality
the human heart seems to be con-
stantly seeking some uiiworthy ob-
ject on which to lavish its sickly
affections and its absurd sympathy.
There are people who love their
dogs and cats better than they do
human beings of their own ilesh
and blood. There are wealthy and
influential societies for the preven-
tion of cruelty to animals and with
power aud authority to bring to
punishment the luckless human
creature who shall be^ found beat-
ing a stubborn mule or a refrac-
tory lioise,,while, iu the very sight
and under the hands of these sym-
pathetic people, vfc|,~ riiiaery aud
poverty are allowed to drag down
to destruction thousands of their
fellow beings for whom no word of
comfort is spoken nor any gesture
of help offered. The favorite weak-
ness of this modern philanthropy
is sympathy and pity i'or criminals.
Not petty criminals, not the timid
aud contemptible doers of compar-
atively venial offenses, but the
chiefs in crime, the heroes in in-
iquity. These are the special ob
jects of the sympathy ol a large
class of what may be called the be¿t
people, those who give tone to pub-
lic opinion and direction to popular
action. With many people, a red-
handed murderer and a millionaire
forger live in a plane far above the
common thief, the bar-room bum-
mer and the street loafer. For
such men there is, in high circles
even, a feeling oí toleration thai
amounts almost to admiration
Good men under the influence of
it make all sorts of excuses in or-
der to escaps sitting on juries that
are charged with the responsibility
of trying tnese distinguished fel-
ons ; the newspapers are exceeding-
ly careful how they speak of such
gentry; lawyers treat them with
consideration, and tender-hearted
Judges have been known to shed
tears when called to sentence them
to punishment, This at least is
told of a New York Judge who re-
cently sentenced the aristocratic
forger Gilman to the State's prisou,
and ef the Texas Judge who was
called on to consign to the gallows
Mr. William'Longley, a murderous
gentleman, whom few imitators of
the father of assassins, Cain, have
surpassed in the number and hein-
ousneso of his bloouj ct '
to whom the leading paper of Texas
recently gave tlu* use of its columns
to insult tho jury and court that
were brave enough and honest
enough to give him up to justice,
which was more than the court
tlwt tried his eminent com peer,
Mr. Hardin, was able to do. These
scenes are not enacted alone iu
Texas, but in every State of the
Union. "Without doubt the moral
tone of Texas is not inferior to
that oi" any Stale in the Union and
is, in fact, superior to many in
which are great and populous cit-
ies, fruitful propagators of vice and
crime. It must no longer be said
that the laxity with which the laws
are administered is the fault of the
"riff raff," the criminal classes,
the court room loungers, the jury
loafers. Such is not the case.
These are not the ruling classes in
any civilized community.
A better <ia~s of people are re-
sponsible, and whether through
sympathy with the offender, moral
fear of taking the responsibility to
punish, ora distaste to being mixed
up in such a disagreeable business
as the trying of criminals, the
blame lies with the good people of
There is no trouble in punishing
petty thieves. The utmost rigors
of the law are visited on them
without hesitation. They have no
body's pity, no tears are shed for
them, the learning and ingenuity
of eminent counsel are not taxed to
save theso poor wretches from the
vengeance of outraged law, for all
these combimd influences are re-
served for the brigand chiefs. They
alone command public- attention,
and the romance and distinction
that place the greater criminals
above the common herd are so po-
tent to blind the moral eye to the
heniousness and hatel'ulness of
their crimes that commonplace
folks, who are insensible to this
sickly sentimentality, have actu-
ally conic to think that it is next to
impossible to punish any but the
humbler classes of offenders. This,
at least, is what matters are fast
coining to, and there will he no
remedy until this unhealthy phi-
lanthropy plays itself out aud the
necessity of self-protection drives
people to take a difierent view of
liiaii-toned and dietingiiu-hed crime.

says : The Republican party is in a
critical condition. In various localities
it lias lost its supremacy from the per-
verson to which its power has beeu put
by unscrupulous leaders. In there
caces it lias been made to serve the few
to the detriment of the many ; cliques
have giown rich while the expenses of
government have increased, and taxa-
tion has beeu rendered so burdensome
that it weighs like a dead weight on the
welfare of communities. Men of no
other caj)acity than skiii in in-
trigue, and others of acknowledged ca-
pacity but unscrupulous in aims and
principles, have used an honorable and
powerful organization solely for the
nurpose of promoting their own sordid
ai:us. In some of the great cities the
solid ability and character of tho Re-
publican party serves only to indorse
the purposes of a . scheming few*. In
neither Congress, tlie'State Legislatures
nor the municipal bodies are tho best
elements of the party properly resresen-
ted. A political organization which, in
substantial interests, intellect and moral
character, is the first in the country,
thus controlled, can not rightfully ex-
pect to hold its own. Wherevor such
practices prevail they must ceaee, or
the party majority will bo converted
into a humiliating minority. There is
■jl tendency to disintegration in parties
that have long been in the ascendency.

ployee in a printing office who
willingly disregards this rule i:i
relation to printing office secrets
would not only be scorned by his
brethren of the craft, but would
lose his position at once. We make
this statement because it some-
times happens that a communica-
tion appears iu a uewspaper under
an assumed signature which excited
comment, aud various parties try
to find out who is the author. Let
all be saved the trouble of que¡

down as dishonorable members of

uotice be given of the desire for

than root crops, and grows faster

Justice Alberthal summoned a jury

deceased came to his death by a"
pistol fired from the hands of au'
unknown person. The popular
impression is that he was killed by
the accidental discharge of his pis-
tol, or that he committed suicide,
as his pistol was found lying close
by his side. His horse was also
found hitched near by. Young
