MB. PAGE'S ADDRESS AND THEME in the address before Washing ton and Lee University, Va., of Mr. xnomsB JNelson Page the gifted young author, his theme was "The Old South." He is not of that class of young men of parts who kno w but little of the South and that little limited to the last decade or so. He has shown himself i amply equipped to discuss the manners and customs of Virginia with .that fidelity and realistic touch that mark the true Southern author, "native here and to the manner born' Mr. Page is not of that unfortunate class of .young men who bow down bere an idol of gold and offer incense to the god of materialism. He knows that it is great and noble men "who constitute a State;" and he feels proud of the civ ilization of his people before the war. He knows that American institutions and American progress and American prowess are inore indebted to the South than to the jiNorth. Without the grand conservatism of the Southern leaders; J without the wis dom and patriotism and gran deur of Washington and Jeffer son, of Madison J and Henry, J of Andrew Jackson and John C. Cal houn, this countryj would have long ago fallen under the exclusive con trol of men seethed in and saturated with the Hamiltonian theory of a Senate for life and a nobilitv. knd would have become a Government of .1 ".J 9 , aristocrats and plutocrats, by , aristo crats ana plutocrats and for aristo crats and plutocrats The iron wheel of centralization j would have been grinding a'way all eighty years like' through the last a mighty car! of J uggernaut, cru8hing,mangling, des' troying. But our purpose was to call atten tion to the fact that the young man of tne bouth who shows the richest r genius and who is a genuine produc tion of our soil and people and insti tions, has no taint whatever ofj the canker that has struck some others, and that he stands up in his native State on a literary festivity to cele brate in admirable English tho glo ries of the "Old: South." He savs: i i i i "Its chief attribute was conservatism: its qualities were courage, fidelity, purity, hospitality, magnanimity, honesty and truth. . 11' i "Whilst it proudly boasted itself Demo cratic, it was distinctly and avowedly anti raaicai, noiuing last to those things which were provea. ana stanaing witn its conserv atism a steaaiast bulwark against all nov elties and aggressions. - "No dangerous isms nourished, in that placid atmosphere, and against that civiliz ation innovations beat vainly as the waves lasn wemeeives into spray azainst the stead fast shore. !i "Slavery itself, which Droved the snrinir oi woes unnumoerea. ana which clotre-ed the wheels of progress and withdrew the south from sympathy with the outer world. christianised a race, and was the automatic balance-wheel between labor and capital. which preyented the excessive accumula tion of wealth on the one hand with its attendant perils and on the other hand prevented the antithesis of the immense pauper class which ! work for less than the wage of the slave without any of his inci dental compensations."

Mr. Join Fulton has furnished the best paper on the Revised Version of the Holy Scriptures for The Forum for J une that we have Been. vIt is admirably written and the views are judicious as they appear to us. IThe trend of his article is to show "Why the Revised Version has failed?" We think he has hit the nail square ly on the head has given the right solution. V The article cannot receive -justice in , an ! abstract. You must read the lucid, scholarly penetrating discussion in the choice , language of the critic to . appreciate its merits. The Revisers erred on the Bide of ex cess. They undertook too' much and failed. The merits of the Victorian .Revision .. are unquestionably very considerable. The following taken from near the close of the. article will let our readers see what is the sum of the matter. Mr. Fulton says: "What shall we think, then, of the fact tnat in this, one of the most charming mcueaui our xjogiisu jtiioic, tne revisers have felt themselves obliged by the nature of their task to make twenty-one other changes, every one of which is absolutely useless, several of which are merely (and uueusiveiyj peaanuc, ana most or which stiffen the rhythm without bettering the sense?

If the Westminster revisers had confined themselves to the simplest inter pretation of their task, that is to say, if tney nad been content to remove spurious passages, to adopt improved readings which were not known to their predecessors, to correct manifest mistranslations of the sense of the original, to insert modern iorms for forms which have crown obsolete. sou 10 Huosuiuie woras wnicu are univer sally understood forewords which, through iuo iaps oi ume, are now naoie to be mis understood, they would not have offered us a su08Utule for the version of King James, but they would have given ua a new edition or mat version worthy of the present age. As they have interpreted their work, and as its projectors probably meant them to interpret it, they have made a new version tii uuuouoiea vaiue, out vaiuaoie only as a verbal commentary on the old, and which will never take the place held by the old The Star referred a few days ago to the Israelitish people. In the last North American Review, there is a DaDer bv one of that annient. rnno in . , ( wnicn ho discusses "Why Am I a Jew ?" It is . an able paper, and; worth reading by both Jew and Gen-i tile.

He tried to write stories and sent them in all of their crudenees to Mr. Taylor, one of the busiest of editors and men of letters. . He begged him to read the Btones. .Mr. T replied that he would not only read them but try to Bell them. Mr. j Vanderpool says : : I "Mr. Taylor had found my poor little pieces so crudely done that he . had to re-write every word of them; and it is safe to say that no other man in the universe would have given so much valuable time to a stranger, and an unknown boy at mat." j ' - . - He sold seventy manuscripts, all oi wnicn ne toucnea up and edited, and many of which he entirely wrote. But this was not enough. He got them published in New Yorjr, Boston, Philadelphia . and London and got the favor of such eminent editors as Horace Greeley, George Ripley and James Redpath. The lad was taken into . the Tribune office and trained for journalism. Wehaye never read any story that shows o much disinterested friendship as this story of the kindness and genercsrty .of Bayard Taylor for a poor sick boy without extraordinary promise. It shows the goodness of a heart that was responsive to the appeals of hu manity. He did these continued fa vors "at great personal inconven ience," as we are told, and bore wiih acts of the boy that were not pleas ant, but without reproach or com plaint. We have given the outlines of this extraordinary case because: it is so highly creditable : to a j distin guished Northern author, and gives such a notable example of true sym pathy and benevolence.

They drove across the railroad track in the northern pact of the town, lust in front of the fast mail jtrain coming in from Weldon. Tne noise made by the train frightened the horse jwhich baulked, and backing drove the buggy against the swiftly moving care. In her alarm Miss Rosenthal jumped out of the buggy and was caught by the cars and terribly mutilated, one of her limbs being crushed and other injuries inflicted.- It is feared that she cannot recover. - Mr. Oettinger was thrown out of the buggy tut escaped injury; And Still Tbejr Come.

There have been heavy rains in the up- country during the past few days and as a consequence a rapid rise in the Cape Fear river has resulted. Advices from Favette- ville report an increase of four feet and the water still rising.

In addition to the six men imprisoned by the fire in the Best & Belcher mines, five men are' shut off from escape in the 800-foot level, and four men in the 400-foot level of the Gould & Curry mine, making in all fifteen miners imprisoned. Little hope is entertained of saving the men on the 400-foot level! En gines are busily engaged in pumping: air to the levels where the men are imprisoned. Thousands of persons surround the mines and the most intense excitement prevails. No effort is being made to put out the fire, as it is impossible to ascertain where it is. Later The rescuing oartv has finally managed to reach the 400-foot-level. bnt found the five miners dead. Thev had evidently been asphyxiated while endeav oring to escape.

Notwithstanding the fact that all settlements for loaned stock and money go over until Monday, transactions at the Stock Exchange to-day foot up a fairly respectable total. Trading was almost entirely free from excitement and prices generally for a short time in the first hour, displayed no special movement. A rumor was circulated that the Secretary of the Treasury would prepay July interest, and there was considerable buying upon this. After the early demand was supplied the market became dull, but after the bank statement was published and was found to be less unfavorable than had been expected, better buying was noticeable. - There was considerable money loaned which had been borrowed in , anticipation of a squeeze and the maximum 1 rate to-day was only 9 per cent There were attempts to work the market lower in the first hour, and a few stocks scored material declines, but In most cases these were fully recovered before the Close.
