No doubt it is evident ly this time,
even to the most unimpressible
young gentleman about the lst -office
department, that the recent order
dunging the name Appomattox to
that of Surrender does not commend
itself to persons of taste, intelligence
and good feeling. How any one
could ever have expected any
other consumation is a" mystery
which we do not propose to inquire
into at this tune. Enough for all
ptesent purposes to know that the
change is everywhere deplored and
that the volume of popular condem
nation is swelling with every hour
A semi official utterance from the
Department some days ago, remind
ed us that the transformation of Ap
pomattox into Surrender had been
appiovcd by Hon. Mr. Tucker, the
representative for the district, and
that it had not In en unfavorably
mentioned except in the newspapers.
To be sure, we cannot see what this
has to do with it Mr. Tucker's ap
proval, supposing that he really gave
it, is after all only the approval of an
individual, whereas the chorus of
protest and condemnation that broke
out in the newspapers is the echo of
public feeling, and stands for thous
ands. How. pray, does the depart
ment acquaint itselt with popular
sentiment except through the medi
um of the newspapers? How the of
ficials perch on three-legged stools
behi-id closed doors ami envolved it
from their inner consciousness? It
seems to us that in saying that the
Hon, Mr. Tucker stood alone against
the newspapers in commending the
extinction of Appomattox, an Assi
tant Postmaster General destroyed
his own case.
Hut. whatever doubt m iy have ex
isted a week ago. it must be obvious
now to the very dullest precept ion
that the action of the department in
th;s matter is condemned on every
hand. The change of name was un
necessary, to begin with. That word
"Appomattox" represented the cul
mination of the most tremendous
dram i of modern times. It was h-s-toric,
like Salamis, or Phillippi, or
Waterloo. It meant seunething
something honorable to both of the
great actors in the tragedy. It evoked
a memory for which none need shrink
with sorrow or shame. It indicated
a revolution: it marked an epoch. It
was splendid, terrible, and exalting.
Rut "'Surrender!" That involves
boasting for one and humiliation for
the other. It has a mean and cruel
ring. It might imply a quatrel of
pigmies as well as a collision of Titans.
It is foolish, insignificant, and futile.
It brutalizes anil belittles the rocord
of a great people and blurs the out
lines of a gigantic episode.
Let it go! Keep Appomattox and
let Surrender go! Washington Post.

A very strange thing has come to
pass in Wilmington, never heard of
before by the oldest fishermen. All
day long yesterday at Front street
market dock, a lot of boys with hook
and line caught numerous small while
shad and rock fish from four to six
inches in length. The oldest fisher
men tell us that they never knew the
small fry ot shad to take the hook be
fore, and the fact is none can remember
of ever seeing young shail in the river
before It has been known that m the
spring the full grown shad come up
stream to spawn and that the small fry,
after being hatched, migrate to the
ocean where they come to maturity
only again to repeat their spawning
migration in the the spring. It has
never been known, however, where or
how the little shad get back to the
ocean, and the circumstance mentioned
above is quite a curious one. The little
fish bit right along yesterday and th
hoys had to be interfered with in their
sport to stop their wanton destruction
of this valuable lish. Wilmington Mes

sentiment favoring further resistance
expressed at the weaver's meeting, to

Scrnm of Emtacy,
Scuaxton, Pa.. October 1. From ap
parently certain death on Thursday,
when a portion of the workings of the
northwest colliery at Simpson, near
Carliondale, caved in. William Mitchell,
(Jeorge Arney, John Fanning an t An
drew Klapkowaky are today the objects
of demonstrative rejoicing in the vil
lage. When the cave-in occurred their death
was regarded as certain, but on Thurs
day night the rescuers at work heard
responses to their tapping and it was
believed that there was one man to es
cape the fall. Yesterday when it Ite
came a certainty that all four were
alive the agony of Thursday was turned
into almost uncontrollable rejoicing.
They pushed their work more vigorous
ly then, and they pierced the black wait
that had made the prison, almost five
hours earlier than expe'eted.
The men were faint from lack of food
and drink, but these in stimulating
quantities were supplied them, and
they were shortly after midnight re
stored to their friends, hundreds of
whom stood massed at the mine's mouth
to receive them. They were taken to
their homes in wagons with demonstra
tions of joy greeting them along the
Their escape from death is regarded
almost a miracle, considering the ex
tent of the cave-in aud the fact that
they were at work right beneath it.
They had heard the warning of the
cracking roof and lied to a place ol
safety before the fall reached where
they were at work.
