Kaiser William has raised a breeze in
Fatherland by the autocratic style of
his recent rescript, the tone of which
seems to have been a surprise to his
subjects. Bismarck is said to have
inspired the document, and persuaded
the old gentleman, who is in his 86th
year and in the nature of things
cannot wield the scepter many years
longer, that the people were enjoying
too many privileges, and his Kaiser
ship too few. The Premier has never
been entirely satisfied since the
elections over there rather went con
trary to his wishes and expectations,
and a majority of the members of the
Reichstag elected who were opposed to
his particular way of running the state.
They say he has been mad ever since.
He threatened to resign then and re
tire to private life, but reconsidered
that, it seems, and concluded to remain
and get even with his opponents by
persuading the old Kaiser to take an
advance position and assume an aggres
sive attitude. The result will be, it is
thought, a parliamentary battle to re
sist the encroachments by the crown.
It is probable that it may lead to even
more serious results than this, judging
from the expression of opinion by the
press, for the people are not disposed
to submit to the royal claims and pre
tentions, in which they see the work of
the imperious Premier, who would ride
rough-shod over those who differ from
him, and is regarded as an enemy to
SILK CULTURE IW THE SOUTH.
The subject of silk culture has at
tracted more or less attention in the
South within the past couple of years,
and in a few localities where it has been
attempted it has met with considerable
success. In Louisiana, we believe it
has been undertaken by French and
Italians, who are gratified at the suc
cess they have met with, and are con
fident of reaching rich results for their
venture and labor. We are under the
impression also that the possibility of
producing it profitably in this State has
been fully demonstrated. Many years
ago there was quite a fever in some
sections of the State and many acres of
mulberry trees were planted, but for
some reason the fever died out and so
did the silk worm and the trees. Since
then there has been no systematic ef
rort made to revive that industry,
though some farmers have for years
raised a limited quantity, from which
the girls of the household get tneir
pocket money. As an addition to the
other branches of farm production
this might be added without any risk
nor much expense, and be made to
yield a handsome result for the outlay
made. While if pursued in a small
way the product to each individual
would not be much, in the aggregate, if
many engaged in it, it would amount
to considerable and would lead perhaps
to the establishing at central points of
manufactories for the spinning and
weaving of the silk, and this, by fur
nishing a ready home market, would
have a tendency to encourage and en
large the cultivation of it. Enter
prises of this kind from small, unpre
tending beginnings grow to be grand
industries. There is no good reason
why the South may not in time, in ad
dition to being the great cotton-producing
section of the world, also be the
great silk-producing section.

Whatever the opinion of the court or

tried may be as to his insanity, there is
no small number of people who be

his counsel, spaaking of an interview
with him a few days ago said:
"I am astounded at his mental condi

As an illustration of how the star
route swindlers carried on the straw
bond game, it was developed in a Wash
ington court last Wednesday when
eleven cases of the straw bondsmen
were called up, it turned out that out
of bonds given, aggregating over $8,000,-
000, there wasn't actual value enough
found in the eight millions to buy a
spavined horse. It seems there was a
gang of men, who were paid a small
consideration for going on these bonds,
and who would make affidavit that they
were possessed of certain property,
large tracts o'f land, &c which upon
investigation proved to be false, the
parties making such affidavits owning
no lands nor anything else of value.
One of the accused parties who had
gone on bonds to the amount of over
two millions, representing that he was
a large land owner in Georgia, didn't
own an acre. There must have cer

that piTfin the most hardened crimnal, if
sane, might be expected to give utter
ance to. He said to me with the great
est earnestness, 'The Lord will put
words into your mouth with which to
convince the jury, and I shall be acquit
ted. I have no money now, but I shall
earn 8100,000 within a month after this
trial is over, and I will then give you
$50,000.' The smile which accompan
ied the last remark was so unnatural
that it chilled me."
J. B. Randall, the brilliant Washing
ton correspondent of the Augusta
Chronicle, who attended the trial re
cently after a vivid pen-picture of the
prisoner as he sits in the dock, says:
"I never believed it before, but a
close scrutiny of the man convinces me
that be was a madman a monomaniac
when he shot Mr. Garfield, and that
he is a madman now. It is true that he
occasionally exhibits astonishing pene
tration of sophistry and that, in smart
ness of retort, he is often too much for
the prosecuting lawyers; but notning
is more common than an almost pre
ternatural acuteness on some subjects
manifested by the insane; and the
famous Dr. McFarland, whose testi
mony was not permitted, cites the case
of a patient under his charge who
contributed tbe most lucid brilliant
and logical articles for a New York
Super, but who was as mad as a
arch hare otherwise. In some persons
the hallucination exists in the direction
of self-slaughter, while in others it is
the apprehension of being murdered,
where no danger is present The father
of this man was insane beyond a doubt,
and before his birth his mother was
temporarily aberrated. His enormous
self-conceit and lower passions con
spired to increase the congenital and
organic lunacy. The vehement ha
rangues he makes and the startling in
terruptions are not assumed to coun
terfeit craziness. They are, in my opin
ion, painfully, horribly, dramatically
real. Just as he made no preparation
or effort to escape the consequence of
his crime, so he now turns vengefully
on his devoted brother-in-law when
that unhappy but constant friend seeks
to prove him insane now as well as at
the time of the assassination. The com
mon impression here is that he will be
condemned to death, because the jury
fear violence at tbe hands of the mob
in case they consigned him to an asy
lum instead of the gallows, although
the latter fate would not be near so re
volting to him as the former. Tbe
wretches who send him ropes and dev
ilish messages are equal to the task of
attempting the murder of a conscien
tious juryman who would vote against
his execution, although if he be insane,
as some of the highest and purest men
in the land believe, nothing would more
tarnish the American name than his
sentence of death on the gallows. This
may not be a popular view of the mat
ter, but it is my firm conviction against
my former prejudices. Until I saw,
heard and studied the miserable crea
ture I believed him to be at least sane
enough to hang; but I do not think o
now, and there are not a few of Mr.
Garfield's church members who share
viriern hut riffht on Corkhill.'
Davidge resumed his argument and
the review of evidence. He showed by
the evidence of J. W. Guiteau and other
witnesses for the defence the fallacy
and absurdity of Scoville's pet theory
that the Drisoner was an imbecile. Af
ter his opening speech Guiteau remain
ed a quiet listener for an hour. Da
vidge having used some pretty strong
language in alluding to Guiteau, such
as "this unspeakable liar," the prisoner
retorted: "O, youare making all that
fine talk for money," following it up
with frequent comments such as, "that
happens to .be false," "that isn't true,"
and similar expressions. Davidge pass
ed to the examination of the prisoner
himself ; his appearance upon the stand :
what he had said, and what capacity of
intellect he had shown, proving con
clusively that what had gone before
had all been . sham and hollow fraud.
Scoville had dilated upon his morality
and had asserted that a lack of intellect
was his failing; on the contrary he had
shown upon the stand wonderful mem
ory, logic, reasoning and intellectual
ability likewise. As the defence had
claimed for him virtue and morality,
the prosecution had availed themselves
of their right to show the contrary, and
what had been the results. He had
been shown to be such a monster of
corruption, deceit, depravity and wick
edness that the country looked on with
"That might have been the case."
shouted Guiteau, "in July, but it isn't
the case now. If you, could see some
of the letters I have been receiving you
would see that a good many people
think I am one of the best and great
est men in the country."
Continuing. Davidge skilfully and
with wonderful effect reviewed that
portion of the testimony bearing upon
the prisoner s moral cnaracier as evi
dence in his past life.
"All this time," said the counsel, "no
one accused him of insanity. In the
estimation of his friends and his family

A CABD TO THE PUBLIC.
Washington, D. G, Jan. 12, 1882.
A correspondence between Gen. Steven
Q. Burbndge, formerly of Kentucky,
and now a citizen of Pennsylvania, and
myself, begun by him, has through his
instrumentality been obtruded upon
I regret this but not because I have
any reason to fear the judgment of the
public on tbe questions involved. For
the soldiers of the Union army who
respected thelaws of honorable war
fare l have no reelings duc respect ana
appreciation of their manhood. Gener
al Burbridge is outside this pale by
reason of atrocities well known to the
people of Kentucky, which have justly
made him an outcast from the state
where honorable men have buried in
honorable reconciliation the animosi
ties of that unhappy period. I share
fully the detestation of General Bur
bridge and his conduct, which is enter
tained alike by the Confederates and
Union men in the State of Kentucky,
and this feeling I have expressed on
proper occasions. The fact was made
known to him when he interrogated
me as to my utterances respecting him.
I refused to modify my language or to
accept his attempt of self -vindication.
I gave him frankly this answer. His
response is not an appeal to usages by
which gentlemen: have been governed,
but an attempt to retort by counter in
sult. If this course is satisfactory to
General Burbridge or his feelings. I
cannot complain. I dismiss him to the
enjoyment of any honors he may have
acquired by this effort to rehabilitate
the reputation which, resting as it does,
upon known facts of the shameful per
sonal history, cannot be made worse by
aught that I can now say against him,
or improved by his own assertions of
innocence and certificates of character.
These are not required by gentlemen
who have practiced a decent respect
for the opinions of mankind.
