The Charity of Coward.
Two ladies, who are officers of the Southern
Orphans' Relief Association, have recently vis
ited several of the Northern cities, and have so
licited contributions for the relief of the little
sufferers in the South who have been orphaned
and left destitute by the war. It is gratifying
to be able to state that iu this city and else
where the character of the applicants, and es
pecially the charity they advocated, were such
as to result in liberal donations of money and
other necessary articles. These ladies applied
for subscriptions in Chicago, among others to
the proprietors of the Chicago RcpuUican, the
hading disunion sheet of that city. The re

This is simply inhuman. Jheae women ask
for bread and receive in return a stone, which
is not merely offered but actually thrown at
them with all the malignity that Radical ran
cor ran inspire. From the representatives of a
party which claims all the morality and all the
decency of the country, it is hardly to be ex
pected that a request from charitable women,
lor the relief of styreg children, should not
only be refused, but the refusal lie accompanied
with insult. Hut so it is; r-nd it is only the
latest illustration of that Radical vindictiveness
that is as cowardly as it is virulent, and which
wars only upon women and children. It is the
kind of warfare that has pre-eminently exhibit,
ed itself since peace closed the struggle of four
years; the valor that, when the war was in
progress, raked the coasts of the Southern
States, from Norfolk to New Orleans, for negro
substitutes; aud that now, long after the South
has I lid down its arms, proposes to organize
Torch-and-Turpentine brigades to walk over
the course where other armies fought their way,
to burn and devastate peaceful communities.
It is the valor of tenom, which is only valiant
when the foe is unarmed, and its grandest vic
tories are over weak women and helpless child
ren. State Amnesty.
The Legislature of North Carolina has passed
a bill granting pardons to soldiers in the reliel
and Union armies for offences against the crim
inal laws while under military rule.
It would lie much to the credit of all the
Southern States to pursue a like course where
actions are pending in the courts, either against
soldiers of the Federal or Confederate armies.
Though the South has no cause to love . those
persons in her midst who have been guilty, un
der sanction ot military rule, of violating the
statute laws of the land, yet we see no good re
mit from prosecuting suck individuals-; bat we
rather fear evil will be the consequence of es
tablishing the precedent that soldiers under
command of thur superiors in, time of war are
riaijHMisible to the Civil authorities tor the bel
ligerent acts that TriayS, be committed." It has
always been the custom of nations after such
wars as the one which we have just passed, and
in which the basest passions of man are excited
to an unusual pitch, to grant a general amnesty
lor all acts committed under the color of mili
tary authority. Unless the States of the South
have sufficient magnanimty to pursue this course,
these neighborhood bickerings which embitter
all tlie sources ot social lite will continue to
mar the peace of our people, and to retard their
material prosperity. It is not a matter of sur
prise that the Legislaturenf Tennessee has taken
no such action, but it docs appear to us rather
remarkable thatsomeof our nechlioring 8,tatis,

Daniel 0'Conneil and the Scold.
We have more than once given place to the
following, but it is so rich that we can wot resist
the temptation to reproduce it : ,
One of the drollest scenes ofvirtuperation
that Daniel O'Connell, the celebrated Irish or
ator and agitator, ever figured in took place in
the early part ot his lite. Not long after ha
was called to the bar, his character and peculiar
talents received rapid recognition from all who
were casually acquainted with him. His talent
for virtuperative language was perceived, and by
aome he was, even in those days, considered
matchless as a scold. However, there was at
that time in Dublin a certain woman, Biddy
Horiarty, who had a huckster's stall on one end
of the quay, nearly opposite tho Four Courts.
She was a virago of the first order, very able
with her tongue. From one end ot Dublin to
the other she was notorious for the powers of
abuse ; and even in the provinces Mrs. Moriarty's
language had passed into currency.
The dictionary of Dubrin slang has been con
siderably enlarged by her, and her voliibluness
had almost become proverbial. Some of O'Con
nell's friends, however, thought he could lieat
her at the use of het own weapons. Of this,
however, he had some doubt himself, when he
had listened once or twice to some minor spec
imens ol her billingsgate. It wa mooted once
whether the young Kerry barrister could encoun
ter her, and some ol the company, (in O'Con
ncll's presence,) rather ridiculed the idea of his
being able to meet the famous Madame Moriarty.
O'Connell never liked the idea of being put
down, and confessed his readiness to encounter
her and even backed himself for tlie match.
Bet were offered and taken ; and it was decided
that the matter should come off at once.
The party adjourned to the huckster's stand, .
and there was the owner herself, superintending "
the sale of her small wares.
O'Connell was very confident of success. He "
bad laid a very ingenious plan for overcoming
her, and with all the anxiety of an ardent experi
mentalist, waited to put it in practice.' At this
time O'Connell's own party and the loungers
about the place formed an audienee quite snfU- .
cient to rouse Mrs. Moriarty, on- public provo
cation, to a due sense of her powers. O'Con
nell commenced the attack by saying :
What s the price of this walking stick, Mrs.
"Moriarty, sir, is my name, and a good one it
is too, and what have ye to say agin it? And
one and a sixpence is the price of the stick.
Troth, it's cheap as dirt, so it is."
"One and a sixpence for such a walking-stick!
Whew t Why you are no better than an impos
tor, to ask one and a sixpence for what only
coat two pern."
"Two pence, your grandmother," relied Mrs.
Biddy. "Do you mean to say that it's cheating j
the people I am ! Imposter indeed."
"Ay, impostor ; and it's that I call you to your
teeth." replied O'Connell.
Come, cut your stick, you cantankerous jack
anapes." "Keep a civil tongue in your head, you old
diagonal," replied O'Connell, calrajy.
"ritop your jaw, you pug-nosed badger; or, by
this and that," cried Mrs. Moriarty, "I'll make
you go quicker than you came."
"Don't be in a passion, my old radius, anger
will only wrinkle your beauty."
"By hokey, if you say another word of itnpu
dencw, I'll tan .your dusty hfae, you beastly
common scrub ; and sorrry I'll be to spoil my fist
with your carcass."
"Whey, boys 1 what a passion old Biddy's in;
I protest, as I am gentleman." '
"Jintleman ! jiutleman 1 The like of you a
jintlcman 1 W-tnha, by got, that bngBao -ghar.
Why. you potato-faced pippin sneezer,
where did a Madagascar monkey like you pick
up enough common Christian decency to hide
your Kerry brogue ?" '
"Easy, how," cried 'OTnn,u'wTta'lmnertnr
liable good humor, "donJt choke yourself with
fine language, you old w hisky drinking parallel
ogram." "What's that you call me, you dirty, murther
ing villian ?" roared Mrs. Morairty, tUOg into -.
"I call you," answered O'Connell, "a parallel
ogram, and a Dublin Judge or Jury-would say
it wa no libel to call jou so."
"Oh, tare and ouns , Ob, holy Biddy 1 that
an honest woman like me should be called a
parry belly griims ! you rascally gallows-bird;
you cowardly, sneaking plate-licking blaggard!''
"Oh. not you, indeed !" retorted O'Connell.
"Why, I suppose you'll deny that you keep a
livpothcnusein your house !"
-It's a lie for you, yon bloody robber! Inev
tsr bad such a thing in my house, yon bloody
thief ! " j '
'Why, all your neighbors know very well that
ton not only keep a hypothenuse, but that you
have two diameters locked np in your garret,
ami that you go.to walk with them every Sun
day, you heartless old heptagon."
"Oh ! hear that, ye taints ta glory 1 Oh ! that's
bad Ungtmge for a fellow who want to pas
himself off tor a jintleman. May the devil ffy
away with you, you michcr from Monster, and
I ake celery sauce from your rotten limbs."
"Ah, you can't deny the. charge, yon miser
able s'.ibniultiple of a duplicate fraction."
"Go rinse your mouth in the Li ffy, yon nasty i
tickle pitcher. After all the bad words you
speak it ought to be filthier than your lace, yon
dirty chicken of Beliebub."
"Rinse your mouth, you wicked old polygon.
To tlie deuce I pitch you, you blustering inter
section of stinking superfluities.'' '
"You saucy tinker's apprentice, if yon don't
cease your jaw, I'll ."
But here she gasped for breath, unable to hawk
up ny more words, for the last volley of 6'Con
