THE STAB ROUTE INDICTMENTS.
A "Washington grand jury has found
indictments against Dorsey, Brady and
others, for swindling the government
on the star route contracts, which
means that these enterprising and zeal
ous Republicans are to be tried, and, if
convicted punished. But does not this
indictment place other prominent Re
publicans in rather an embarrassing
position ? The men who hold the high
est places to-day in the administration
of the government at Washington were
among their boon companions, and fellow-workers
in the last fall campaign,
and not only knew of, but encouraged
corruption as wicked and deserving of
punishment as the swindling, of the
government out of money in the star
route contracts. Dorsey, as secretary
of the Republican national executive
committee, took personal charge and
direction of the canvass in Indiana
when all the indications pointed to
the probability of its going Democratic,
and by processes best known to himself
and those in his confidence, the tide
was turned and the. State carried for
the Republicans. He was the right
man in the right place for that kind of
work. Backed with plenty of money,
forced from assessed office-holders, bold
in his brazen effrontery, and thoroughly
unscrupulous, he did what abler, but
less wicked men could not do, he
bought the election, -and with dollars
and cents carried the State against the
honest sentiments of a majority of her
people. For this brilliant triumph of
bribery and baseness, he was given a
grand banquet at Delmonico's, in New
York, as an evidence of the apprecia
tion of the high-toned Republican lead
ersor the gallant and signal service he
had rendered the party in the hour of
its dire need.
Amongst the distinguished assem
blage around that festive board was
Col. George Bliss, the prosecuting attor
ney now in charge of the case. He jol
lified with the others over the Republi
can triumph and was among the warm
est in his commendation of the brilliant
achievements of his friend Dorsey. He
heard the allusion to the peculiar meth
ods by which these gratifying results
were secured, and smiled a broad smile
when the corruption fraud was hinted
at approvingly by no less a personage
than the present President of the Unit
ed States. He smiled complacently
then on the villain who robbed a State
and made a mockery of the ballot.
Among the guests on that occasion was
Gen. Arthur, now President, who, in
congratulating the hero of the hour,
delivered himself thus:
"If you look for the measure of the
appreciation of-the services rendered by
Mr. Dorsey and the measure of the re
gard in which his friends all through
this c untry hold him, look around you
and y. u will see the most distinguished
gathering of Republican leaders and
, ltepu Hcan sentiment that to my know
ledge, in my brief life, ever met in this
city. Indiana was really, I sup
pose, a Democratic State. It had been
put down on the books always as a State
p that might be carried by close and per
fect organization and a great deal of
- . I see the reporters are present,
therefore I will simply say that every
body showed a great deal of interest in
the occasion and distributed tracts and
politicil documents all through the
State. The Republicans of Indiana
have always said: We have the best
organization this year we ever had, and
if we nave the sinews of war we will
get through all right.' But some how
or other the State always turned up bn
the other side. My friend here on the
other side (Dorsey) asked to go and lead
that forlorn hope and undertake the
. duty of turning the flank of the enemy.
So he came down one day to the com
mittee rooms in Fifth avenue, and said
that he was going to leave us for some
days; that the National Republican
committee was ' going to establish a
branch offic&out in Indiana. The gen
tlemen in New York stood nobly be
hind the national committee, and re
sponded actively and enthusiastically,
but Mr. Dorsey, with his power for or
ganization, his tireless energy, his won
derful courage and his cool head, was
able to accomplish the result which he
did in Indiana: and that result saved.
more than anything else, New York to
the Republican party. And though
New York had for years been consid-
ered a doubtful State, it was more
Democratic than Republican ; but I re
peat that, if one thing more than an
other secured our success in New York,
it was the moral effect and support
given to our cause by our success in In
diana, which -was more largely due to
Senator Dorsey than to any one else."
It must, indeed, be embarrassing for
these distinguished gentlemen to be
now engaged in trying to place prison
stripes on the no less distinguished, if
now less honored friend, whom they
then united in applauding and honor
ing. But popular sentiment is a mighty
motive power when once aroused, and
. it is undoubtedly more in deference to
this than to a desire to avenge outraged
justice, or to punish arrant fraud, that
these prosecutions have been instituted

ShipsA Visit to Jefferson
Who Pays a Warm Tribute to
To the Editor of the Obserrer.
A visit to New Orleans, in the win
ter, to one who resides in this part of
the country, is certainly to be desired,
but now especially is such a visit pleas
ant during the season of the carnival.
A ride of thirty-six hours, from Char
lotte, brought us to the city of New Or
leans. The change in the weather was
so great that winter clothing was op
pressive. Keaching Canal street at 10 o clock p.
m., we found ourselves in the great city
of the South by the side of the Missis
sippi, unknowing and unknown.
Thousands of people from all parts of
the country were crowding into the
city, to be present at the festivities,
held in honor of Rex, and it was not
without some difficulty that we suc
ceeded in getting a carriage to carry us
to the hospitable house of a friend, who
had kindly invited us to make our stay
The city of New Orleans is different
from any other in the United States.
Situated on the right bank of - the Mis
sissippi, it extends for thirteen miles
up and dc wn the river, with a width of
only about one and one-half miles. Its
population is estimated at about two
hundred and fifty thousand, a little less
than one-half of which are French. Ca
nal street divides it into two parts, on
the one side of which is the French
part of the city.
It is natural to suppose the French
part of the city the most beautiful, but
this is a mistake. The streets are nar
row, and the buildings dingy. There is
also a lack of gas lights, and the
streets look dark and dreary, and alto
gether uninviting to a stranger, who is
unaccustomed to them.
The American part of the city is
quite different Some of the streets
here are beautiful and very wide, with
trees on the side walks, and avenues in
Here and there will be seen gardens
of flowers, with orange trees in them,
planted along the streets, and the per
fumery arising therefrom is delightful
to the passer by, and makes him imag
ine that he is walking in the tropics.
Handsome and costly residences also
adorn the streets, surrounded by large
yards and lawns, upon the gates of
which you will find a lock and a bolt.
In order to be admitted fit is necessa
ry first to ring the bell at the gate when
a servant appears and takes your card.
This was quite new to one who was ac
customed to enter the yard first and
ring the bell afterwards at the door.
The drainage of the city is superficial
and in the gutters of the streets is car
ried away the offal of the city. These
gutters all lead to a large canal, at eith
er end of which a steam engine pump
is kept constantly at work throwing
the contents of the canal into the
swamp. The constant suction in the
canal causes a slight current, by which
the drainage of the city is effected.
They do not think the surface drainage
unhealthy, and some of 'the physicians
of the city even go so far as to say that
this system of sewerage Is their only
salvation, but npon what principle it
is hard to comprehend. . ;
The river at this point ,. is about one
mile wide and flows due north; so that
nn f aai as li vou were on' tne oiner
ide in spite of yourself. It li said the
river hre has a depth of from ninety
to three hundred feet and that since
the entrance to the city at the mouth of
the river had been deepened by the jet
ties the largest sea vessel could come
safely up to the city. We were pre
pared to believe this from the number
we saw riding at anchor on the bosom
of the river. Among the number was,
the "Kearsage," a United States man-of-war
which, it will be remembered.
was the snip that sank the "Alabama"
during the war. We went aboard of
her and were kindly received by the of
ficers, and were shown over the ship.
Very few of the present crew were on
board during the duel with the "Ala
bama." We were under the impression
that the "Kearsage" was an iron-clad,
but in this we were mistaken. It is a
wooden ship, but carries a heavy arma
ment. Its guns are heavy, with a range
of four miles, and its crew numbers
about 200 men. We were told that in
the fight with the "Alabama" Semmes
threw three shells on the "Kearsage,"
none of which exploded. Had either
of them bursted the whole stern of the
"Kearsage" would have been blown up.
We, for the instant, came very near ex-
Eressing our disappointment that
emmes's powder Was so bad, but re
membering that we were on board the
vessel, refrained. This statement ac
cords very well with the lecture of Mr.
Semmes, in which he stated that he
would have sunk the "Kearsage" had
his powder been good.
One of the institutions of the city is
the "Seaman's Bethel," under the direc
tion lof the Rev. A. J. Witherspoon.
This is a home for seamen when they
arrive in New Orleans. Here they have
a little chapel with books and station
arysomething to eat, and a, place
where they always find a welcome". Dr.
Witherspoon is indefatigable in his work
and is widely known by all the seamen
with whom he spends the most of his
time looking after their interest, and
trying to bring them under religious in
fluence during their stay in the city.
Among the prominent personages in
the city were Jefferson Davis and Gen.
We had the pleasure of calling upon
the former, and paying our respects to
him. We found him, together with his
wife and daughter, at the house of Mr.
Hayne. Mr. Davis received us kindly,
warmly, and introduced us to his fam
ily. .He looks much older than when
we last saw him in Charlotte, but is
still straight and erect. He conversed
with us freely in relation to his visit to
Charlotte, about the close of the war
and we found him pleasant and affable.
He spoke kindly and affectionately of
the people of North Carolina, of their
devotion to the lost cause and of the
bravery of her soldiers on the battle
field, remarking the while that
North Carolina never received her
share of the praise due her.
In striking contrast was the atten
tion shown Gen. Hancock to that of Mr.
Davis. Hancock was the center of
ovation the "observed of all observ
ers," and the Southern people were
ready to throw up their hats and shout
whenever he made his appearance. Not
so with Mr. Davis. Here and there
some one would call upon him, ex
change a few words and go away.
Evidently his day has passed. We do
not want to be construed as objecting
to the attentions given to Gen. Han
cock, but we do think our people should
remember Mr. Davis more. He was
the exponent of the principles we once
entertained, and with the downfall of
these principles, went Mr. Davis. He
may have made mistakes in his public
career, but since the war he has been
consistent a solitary man, bearing the
burden of the "lost cause." His enemies
even admit his consistency, which can
not be said of many of the Southern
men who were high in authority during
the late war. We left Mr. Davis fully
impressed with the idea that he was a
great man, and that he had not received
from the Southern people that meed of
respect and love which he had a right
to claim of them. Mr. Davis makes his
home in the country, near Mississippi
City, where, surrounded by his family
circle, he expects to npend the remain
der of his days. May his last days be
spent in peace.
