Springfield (Mass.) Rep.
April 20, 175a, Oliver Cromwell drove
the representatives of the English people
out of their chamber at the point of the
bayonet. January 4, 1875. Ulysses S.
Grant repeats the experiment -upon a
smaller scale, to be sore by sending a
Gle of soldiers into the State-House of an
American commonwealth on a like illegal,
revolutionary, treasonable errand. We
shall see what comes of it. It is impos
sible that the old love of chartered liberty,-
the old jealousy of arbitrary power,
which blazed up so fervidly a hundred
years ago, a beacon-light throwing jta
glare across two worlds, has quite smoul
dered out. It may be that the Americans
of this generation have quite lost the
secret of thai generous, yet wholty rea
sonable and intelligent emotion, which'
fired the shot at Concord and kindled the
bivouac fires at Valley Forge. If so, the
complete subversion of onr present in
st i unions is merely a question of years.
If not, there will be such a sonorous res
spouse to thb manly protest and appeal of
the outraged State as will convince Capi
tol and White House that the patience of
the people is at last exhausted, and that
any further experiments in this line will
be attended with serious risks alike for
institutors, agents, and abettors Let us
bring the matter home to ourselves.
Louisiana is a long way off, and besides,
the fact of its participation in the seces
sion movement is still fresh in the North-
h a i a
ern memory, a good many people in
this part of the country read about the
events occurring there very much as they
would read about similar events occurring
in Mexico or Nicaragua. But it is a State
of the American Union for all that- a
State standing upon the same footing in
every respect, so far as the Constitution
and the laws are concerned, as Massachu

x fin the Senate Saturday .
Mr. Merrimon I hope the Senator
from Maine will withdraw his motion. I
should like to say something on the Lou
isiana question. I have not been able to
join in the debates of the last week or ten
days, but the people of the South have
been so maligned that really I think as a
matter of courtesy the Senate ought to
allow every Southern Senator who de
sires to speak an opportunity to be heard.
They know more about this matter than
anybody else. I hope the Senator from
Maine will not press this motion.
Mr. Ransom 1 desire to say to the
Senate that I trust the request of the Sen
ator from Virginia will be acceded to,
that after the appropriation bill of the Sen
ate from Maine has been passed by the
Senate, this debate will be resumed. It
is already manifest that a number of gen
tlemen on both sides of the chamber desire
to be heard further upon this question.
As tor myselt 1 must say to tue Senate
that I feel it to be my duty to speak on
the Louisiana question. I have sat here
m silence for nearly three years and not
trespassed on the Senate. It is late this
evening ; other gentlemen have the floor;
numbers have expressed their very great
desire to be heard ; and 1 say to the Sen,
ate shat I feel it to be my duty to ack to
be heard upon it I feel that I should
be wanting in all that is due from me to
the people whom I undertake to represent
on this floor if I did not ask to be heard .
I trust the Senate will accede to the re
quest of the honorable Senator from Virginia.

A Military Despotism.
From the Boston Advertiser, Rep.
Military despotism is the proper term
to describe the government now existing
in Louisiana. Certainly, of all govern

that which for two years has

would bci Suppose President Grant
should then avail himself of a strained
constrcution or doubtful enactments to in
stall this defeated candidate with force and
arms in the office to which the people of
Massachusetts had elected another man.
Suppose he should follow up this perfor
mance by placing the army of the United
States at the dUposal of Mr. Butler, aud
by sending Sheridan to Boston, with
the remark that in the event of a distur
bance somebody would get hurt. Sup
pose, finally, he should undertake to de
cide a question of contested seats in the
General Court by sending a file of soldiers
into the State-Uouse while that body
was in session, with others to forcibly
elect the sitting Democratic members.
What would the people of Maseacbsetts
think of such an interferance in their
home affairs of such a use of the United
States army 1 How would they feel
about il? What would tbey say about
it ? Whit wonld they do about it 1 Yet,
we repeat if this sort of thing is lawful
and right in Louisiana, is it lawful and
right in Masachusetts. What is sauce
for New Orleans is sauce for Boston. To
our thinking, there has been no such oc
casion in the last hundred years for rock"
ing the cradle of liberty, and rocking it to
owing it no allegiance is the most help
less. It is a usurpation initiated by a
coup d'etat, and immediately fortified iu
place by the army of the United States.
Nothing else sustains it or has sustained
it from that day to this. The Congress
of the United Stales, more than two thirds
of all of the members of which belong to
the Republican party, in spite of the no
torious facts; in spite, too, of the addition
al circumstance of iu own members, after
a careful investigation, bad confirmed the
general conviction that the Kvllogg Gov
ernment was a usurpation, persistently
neglected to. undo the wrong. There are
men who yet feel a shock of indignation
when they recall the time when tlx ir
court-house was put in chains, and a fu
gitive slave was taken through State
street, on his way to re-cuslavement, be
tweeu files of soldiers wearing the national
uniform. But that was a small affair
A Strange Story. Thirteen
ago, a young man wooed and won a young
lady in a village not tar from Uaveoport,
Iowa, The parents of the girl objected,
and there was a deal of trouble, but final
ly the couple were married at the home of
the bride. Three months after the bride
groom desired to move to California, but
the family of his wife opposed her emi
gration, and the result was that the hus
band started for the Pacific coast without
her. After the first six months, no tidings
from the husband were received ; and in
less than a year, news eame that be was
dead. In 1863, the widow married a
young man who had recently arrived
from Germany ; and her second husband
was entiiely ignorant of the fact that his
bride was a widow.. But "where ignor
ance is bliss 'tis folly to be wise. Short
ly after tbe marriage, the husband pur
chased a farm in Scott county, and on that
farm the con pie have lived ever since, and
several children have blessed their on
ion. Some weeks ago, the husband of this
woman arrived in Davenport, and on mak
ing inquiries, learned tbe history of his
wife's marriage. Then he rode out to see
her. It was fortunate for her that her
liege lord was away from home, for she
was very much affected. She told him
that she supposed him dead, and so mar
ried another, and chided him for neglecting
her as he did. Ho had a long story to
tell, the real gist of it being that he had
determined never to return until be became
rich- Aud here he was rich But his
wife was miserable in his presence and
be was miserable too.
The end of the conference was, that the
first husband returned to Davenport to
consult a lawyer and the end of the con
sultation was, that tbe husband went to
the wife and had another long talk with
her, and then the two seperated, never to
mee. again, for the man determined to
cross the ocean and spend the balance of
his days iu Germany.
The day that he left the wife entered
her suit for divorce on the grounds of de
sertion ; the notice was forthwith served
on the defendant, and be accepted ser

Court, the defendant's name will be call-
The action of the Executive Committee
at its recent session in Raleigh, was truly
gratifying, and will we trust, have Ha
due weight with the members of the
Legislature. With this official endorse
ment by tbe party of the proposition to
call a Convention, there can scarcely be
any further opposition to it within onr
own lines ; tor unless gentlemen deny
tbe authority of the committee, the voice
of the party has been heard, and that
voice is for Con ventiok. Those gentle
men who have so long been so solicitous
for the advocates of Convention to close
their mouths for the sake of harmony, if
they desire to preserve the appearance of
consistency, must no longer be heard in

The free pass system is receiving the
attention of the House, and movements
are on foot to kill it as dead by statutory
action here as it has been killed by gen
eral consent in Kentucky. The House
resolution was a pretty kettle of fish,
however, which may be understood as
meaning a great many things. It charg
ed that it was a species of bribery for a
railroad t- offer a legislator
is the will of tbe party binding on its
members f After an expression of its will,
what ought to control the action of a gen
tleman if there should happen to be a
variance between the whole party and his
particular locality? Is his political allegi
ance due to the whole party, or is it
due to the fragment? This is a question for
certain men who have earnestly and con
scientiously opposed the call of a Conven
tion, now to consider. Opposition up to
this point, and difference of opinion, was
pertectiy iigitimate; Out will it be so any
longer? Has not the party spoken, and
has it not spoken in favor of a Convention
This is the question.
And can gentlemen who look to the
future, and whose friends look fondly to
the future for them, afford to pnt them
selves in opposition to the deliberately
expressed will of the party upon so vital
an issue as the one now presented T If
they are notboond now by every tie of
party fealty and by every necessity of
party discipline to yield their private con
victions, when and nnder what circum
stances will they be bound f
It must be remembered that this deci
sion of the Executive Committee is not
tbe result of any mere sudden ebulition of
feeling, for five long months the discus
sion has been going on. At first public
sentiments, so far as it was expreseed,
was against tbe Convention movement.
The press was overwheltniuglv against
it. And still the discussion went on and
still Convention grew. All sections of
the State were heard from, and still the
discussion went on, and still Convention
grew. At last, in course of time, the
press became largely in favor of Conven
tion, and all presence that tbe people, save
in certain localities, were opposed to it
fell to the ground. Meanwhile the Legis
lature met, and, unwilling to act at once,
postponed the question until after recess,
and at the same time tbe Executive Com
mittee was summoned to meet in Raleigh.

The Human Relics of Pompeii A
writer says : Iu the museum of Pompeii
are preserved the most horrible and
pathetic witnesses of the last days of the
ill-fated city. When the workman were
digging in 1873, they struck into a small
cavity, the nature of which was, of course,
a mystery to them. Without breaking
further into it, they poured plaster of
Paris down the crevices that were already
opened, and as soon as tbe plaster had
hardened, the crust of lava was carefully
removed, and lo ! the form of a human
being in his death struggle perfectly pre
served 1 Buried in the lava that harden
ed about him, his body had crumbled to
dust and left this wonderful mould.
Several bodies have thus beep re-producs
ed one of them with the features per
fectly preserved, so that there is still
some expression in the face. Some parts
of the skeleton are imbedded in the plas
ters ; and two female bodies found lying
near each other are called mother and
dauthgter. There is uotbing at Pompeii
information of the singular disappearance

that straw bad the property of dischar

sion, and some one in tbe neighborhood
of Tarbes had the idea of constructing
straw lightning conductors, which were
formed by fastening a wist or rope of
straw to a dead stick by means of brass
wire, and capping the conductor with a
brass point. It is asserted that the expe
riment has been tried ou a large scale

U. P. Lewis is the wag of the Detroit

did not inherit his wit ; Unlike Mark Twain

The truth ia it was blown into him. He

he took it into his head to sro on "a tramp."

General Sheridan appears to pay
little regard to truth as he does to the
Constitution, and to know no more of the
aae than he does of tbe other, or of civil
government. It now appears that it was
true that he told people in New Orleans,
on his snivel there, that he was on his
way to Havana, and that he merely took
New Orleans oo his route, without inten
ding to stop. And all the while, he had
his instructions in bis pocket ! It Is se
much of a marvel that the brutal and bar
barous dispatches of such an officer should
be contradicted by the united tesimouy of
all the people of New Orleans, including
