Origin of the Bloody Shirt.
A numler of correspondents have
written to a numler of newspapers
lately inquiring about the origin the of
the phrase, "bloody shirt,''' so often
used in the political discussions of the
present day. W e know of no better
explanation than that given by Hoscoe
Conkling, in a speech made in Xew
York, September 17, 1880. Referring
to the ''bloody shirt," he said: "It is a

The Pope has his own soldiers, who
are not very many, and who generally
act as guards to the various parts or
the Vatican. Behind the bronze doors,
which are enormous barred gates,, we
saw some of these soldiers one of whom
will ask us for our ermossos, or per
mits. T am sure you never beheld mil
itary gentlemen like them before.

wesir brass helmets with heavy white
plumes, and carry halberds, or pikes

cers' dress, of the same design, is of
bright silk, and they make a dazzling

had nothing to do with our modern
times; and they very properly seem so;
for iheir uniform was designed by
Michael Angelo, not long after the dis
covery of America, and their costume
has never been changed. It used to be
the custom of many of the potentates
of Europe to have personal guards
composed of Swiss soldiers, as they
were considered more honest and trust
worthy than any others. In Pans the
norter at the doors of great houses is
still often called "The Swiss," although
he is' almost sdwa-s a Frenchman. And
these guards of the Pope are now
Italians, but they still retain the old
jiariie. S7. Nicholas.

SEB YOttK 0BSEUVER,
Recently there assembled in Chicago
a convention of third and fourth-class
postmasters, to protest, it is stated,
against the inequalities to which they
;ire forced to submit. Their grievance
is said to be that their office expenses
come out of their own pockets; that
they are required to set up convenient
fixtures, such as boxes and drawers, at
their own expenses mainly, while post
masters of the first and second class
aref furnished with everything they may
desire, whether it be needed for the
transaction of business or for purposes
of office comfort only. Our sympa
thies go out most heartily to this meet
ing and its object, and we think it
strange that out of the more than four
hundred members of Congress, fully 90
per cent, of whom represent these
classes, of offices, that something to
ward remedying the injustice has not
leen attempted. The Citizen has, for
the past several years, called attention
to it, more sjeeificallv to our own of
fice in Asheville. We are glad to know
that Congressman . Johnston will give
this matter early attention. Asheville
.We fully endorse what the Citizen
says about the injustice meeted out to
many post offices outside or large cities.
Too much money is spent and wasted
on5 large and magnificent buildings.
and not enough on the offices which
afford back-country people and towns
and cities mail accouinwKlations. Ashe
ville, Salisbury, Charlotte, Winston,
&c, do not get their fair share from the
Post Office Department at Washington
or from Congress. Come, bovs, let us
demand our rights. Charlotte Demo
witli the tmng it means, is no inven
tion of our politics. It dates back to
Scotland three centuries ago. After a
massacre in (jlenfruin, not so savage
as have stained our annals, 220 widows
rode on white palfrevs to Stirling
Tower, bearing each on a spear her
husband s bloody shirt. The appeal
waked Scotland's slumbering sword,
and outlawry and the block made the
name of Glenfruin terrible to victorious
Clan Alpine, even to the third genera
tions." - .' .
McCullough's last performance in
Chicago was under the effect of ex
cessive stimulants, and this reminds us
that most of our actors are great drink
ers. Our Junius Brutus Booth (father
of Luwni ) was rarely sober on the
stage, and required incredible potations
to enable him to go through his role.
Sometimes he got drunk before the
hour, and the audience was obliged to
submit to disappointment. George

appeared on our shores, was also a vic-

I wish young women could be taught
that it does not add a cubit to the
stature of a house to call it a "resi
dence;" that church, or even a meet
ing house, is as venerable ts the "sa
cred edifice;" that it is more genteel to
say "retire" than to go to bed f that the
garment so fondly, slowly covered with
side - plaitings, so coldly and quickly
fraved out along the paving stones, is
really a gown and not a "promenade
costume; that it need not tning a
blush to the cheek of even Mr. Pods
nap's young person to say "leg," in
stead or "limb," when "leg" is meant;
that the supper at an evening party is
not "the entertainment;" and that
there are well founded obiections to
the use of "nicely" as an adjective de
scribing the state of one's health. "To
clothe low creeping matter with fine
language," said old Fuller, "is not fine
fanev. but fiat foolery." It rather loads
than raises a wren to fasten the feath
ers of an ostrich to her wings. Mrs.

The Valley of the Yellowstone.
This valley seems composed of two
distinct sections. We have left the re-
rioii of the inferno, and are suddenly
in paradise. The sulpuir stream, boiling
water and blinding alkali plains have
suddenlv vanished, and in their place
come the cool winds from the moun
tains rushing through the dense shad
ows of the pine woods. A pleasant
ride of thirty miles brought us to the
camp near the great canon, and we
shall soon see this wonder of wonders.
I have waited to compare it to the Yo-
semite and the valley of Mexico, but
comparison with any spot on earth is
impossible. It stands alone, utterly un
like anything the world holds. Speak
ing to an hnglishiunn who has been
with us4 said that Bierstadt or Church
should come here and spend years in
order to reproduce it on canvass, and
he answered 'Twould be useless. No
brush could do it justice, and the pic
ture would be laurhed at as an exaer
geraiion." I thinjc he was right. It
is not so much in the grandeur of
the cliffs, though they tower a thous
and feet or more on either hand, as in its
wonderfully vivid colorings. ' Bright
gold and sulphur, deep crimson and
blue, with the dark green of the pme
trees and the rushing water, together
with the fair blue sky and the light of
the setting sun. Make the colors as
vivid as you ean, and the crag as fan
tastic as a dream, and you may in some
small degree realize what this wonder
of Almighty God is like.
The shrine of the Invisible, the
Throne of the Eternal it fascinates;
and one can simply sit and ga.e upon
it in silence. Surely the people can not
know what our land holds, or the thous

Shooting- at the Raiders.
The moonshiners are beginning to
make it unpleasant for the Democratic
raiders. Mr. George W. Means, of
Concord, accompanied bv a brother
officer made a raid into Watauga coun-
tyr last week, and had a regular old
kuklux time of it. Their experience, as
related by Mr. John C. Tipton, who is
also in the revenue service, was not
very pleasant, as the moonshiners fired
several volleys at them, but fortunate
ly,; no damage was done. The officers-

character of the stuff created such a
panic in the city that the industry had
to be squelched. A Whitehall street
merchant bought a box of the poison
one day, and carrying it to his store
tried to spread a dnb of it on a piece of
dry bread as a bait for the rats. He
gave it one spread when there was a
"whish! ' and the whole affair blazed
up in his face, singing off his whiskers.
A few similar experiments prejudiced
the people against the new poison.
They said it was too rough on rats to
burn out their stomachs with such an
explosive. A complete collection of

He sprang upon the man and thrust
one of his antlers through his thigh,

women are not serious.
Boh Inger soil's Audiences.
One well acquainted in this city is
struck, in looking over an Iugersoll
congregation, at the presence of all the
people who are known to be crooked
in their various walks, but who keep
up a genteel appearance, and who have
1 'i . ii i . l r 1 i
enough intelligence to oe rorcea to
think what comes after life. The
gambler who steal cards is there. So
is the liquor dealer who drugs his whis
ky. The well dressed disreputable wo
man is present, with a face full of
eajjer interest. And so are nianv wo
men of reputable social standing, who
have their own heart's secrets, which
make them quite anxious to see a life
of torture hereafter for sins in this
world proved to be a myth. The old
citizen, whose early crookedness has
been forgotten since he became wealthy,
the lawyer who sells out his client, and
the doctor who prolongs the illness of
his patient are all there. The more
solid parts of his argument seem to
make but little impression, and -the
reasoning against the possibility of the
exi.- t'ince of a first cause does not ap
pear to be understoed or appreciated.
J3ut when he craks a stale joke at the
expense of hell the faces of his audi
tors become animated with delight; and
they bre ik into heartfelt applause. It
is clear that they are not atheists from
a prcc.ss of logical reasoning, but are
rather sinner; who have Jjeeome liar-
Kisses on Interest
A father, talking to his careless
daughter, said: "I wall t to s teak to you
of vour mother. It mav be that you
have noticed a careworn look upon her
face lately- Of course it h;is not been
there by anv act of yours:
still it is your duty to chase it away. 1

ing and get breakfast and when your
mother conies and begins to express
her surprise, go right to her and kiss
her on the mouth. You can't imag
ine how it will brighten her dear face.
Besides, you owe her a kiss or two.
Away back, when you were a little girl
she kissed you when no one else was
tempted by your fever tainted breath
and swollen face. You were not as at
tractive then as you are now. And
through these years of childish sun
shine and shadows she was always
ready to cere, by the magic of a moth

first skirmishes' with the rough od
world. And then the midnight kiss
with which she routed so many bad
dreams as she leaned over your restless
pillow, have all been on interest these
long, long veal's. Of course, she is not
so pretty and kissaMe as you are; but
if you had done your share of work the
last ten years, the contrast would not
have been so marked. vHer face has
