Hut we have seen many things and
thought a great deal, anil we must try
to tell ol the former, even if wc are una
ble to keep out occasionally our own re
flections. A visit to Parliament House was vcrv
much a reietition of that to the Stale
apartments in Windsor castle. , itur
ried walk through the rooms with a
guide in front, pretending to describe the
paintings, in a sing-song kind ol a way,
and a policeman behind, insisting that
wc shall "pass hoti;'urry up, please."
And so we are crowded and jostled
throitL'h the beautiful corridors and
rooms, and come out with mind so con
fused as to lie afraid to attempt a de
scriptiou, even of any one of the rcalK
exquisite paintings, statues or tapestries
which wc have seen nut not cnjoycti.
Ol course tun brain holds the same im
pression of the old rascally Mormon Henry

wives, anil looks very much as if he was
considering the propriety ol establishing

iinission to marry six more, w hen a mer
ciful providence cut short his beastly ex
istence. The most interesting part of the build
ings to us is Westminster Hall, where we
are ieriniUcl to linger a lew moments,
and catch inspiration of the scenes which
its walls have witnessed and to think
with sadness upon the number of goon
anil true men who there have been sen
tence to cruel torture and death, liven

Truly intolerance is not a new thing,
nor is it a thing of the past. Many ol ns
know that even ill America, and in dear
little Ashevilic, that a man is advised to
form his mind according to the dictation
of the parly bosses; but, as the days ol
'hanging, drawing and ipiarleriiig" are
past, some men decline to do so.

truly are ustonished ut the sight which
gleets us. Description after description

description? Truly it will be a failure
wc know, but try to sympathize with us
us we cuter the north transept and look
through the lofty arching columns in all
directions, surrounded at its base with
statues in while marble ol every imagi
liable shaie and design, illustrating the
virtues ol men and women whose ashes
lie beneath, and impressing one with the
remembrance, as staled on the tablet ol
lie poet dray, that
"Lite in n jest, anil a!l tilings slit'w it :
I thmiKlit so oin-c. hut now 1 know il."
Vc can conceive of nothing more abso
lutely wearisome than an inspection of
this tremendous Abliey ; perhaps any one
ol lis works of art would delight us, Inn
the tout en .sanble oppresses us beyond
measure. Of course wenre delighted with
a walk through the chaiiels which con
tain the royal tombs, although the guide
hurries us along all too fast for our wish.
Everything we pass, see or touch is
reeking with history, and no one can fail
to realize in himself a feeling that it is
impossible to convey to others, as he
stands at the very spot which contains
the ashes of poor headless (Jueen Mary,

idcrs reaching up into Heaven, and saw
-,thc bright angels ascending and descend

Of course geologists tell us that this is

,As we More remarked, a sense of ex
treme weariness attends our visit to
Westminster Abbey ; it is so lar lieyond
our Kwer of grasping its marvelous
beauties and adornments. Yci vdillcreul
is the sensation produced by St. 1 'mil's
ciuncdral. Its wonderfully calm and
Kaceful magnitude, its lofty airiness un
adorned' by aught else than its own per
fection of proportion; its statues ot the
v ry iK'St art, located so us to allow a
imioi to see one at a time, and to drink
in its beauties; and most appropriately
in this grand church we stand, ami lain
would kneel before the form ot John
Howard, truly u philanthropist, "who
travciscd the civilized world to reduce
tlie. sum of human misery, from the
throne to the dungeon."
Here we could realize the scene in the
grand old temple, where King Solomon
"spread forth his hands" in prayer to
the God who chose his house, and this as
his own. In no other place hare wc ever
felt so ueur the Tliroue.
What curious (icople we are, not satis
fied with the swce ami holy thoughts
engendered by St. Paul's. Wc hasten
thence to the terrible Tower, with all its
horrors ol murders and cruelties, enough
to make the most hardened man shud
der at the consideration that they emu-
tinted from the brain, if not the heart,
Here we, with the same morbid curios
ity which brought the crowd of sight
seers, looked into the room in which the
innocent young princes were most foully
killed, and saw the spot where their
liones were recovered years upon years
afterwards, and borne to their present
resting place in Westminster Abbey, and
where innocent Anne llolcyu was cruelly
U-heailed in order to make room for an
other Mrs. Henry VIII, and where the
gallant knight, who lirst established our
own colony, was coiitiiicilnniltlooincd to
death; and then wc painfully climb the
narrow winding stair to Hcnm-hump
Tower, whose rugged walls of stone, not
so hard as the hearts of the tyrants, are
indented with scrolls and emblems,
placed there by the poor prisoners who

At the Traitor's gate, through which
the steps lend down to the Thames, we
fancy wc can seethe barge rowed up to
deliver its burden, brought from the
judgment seat of Westminster Hall into
the cold stern embrace of these massive,
frowning walls, from which there could
lie no cscuK' other than through the
gale of death.
Xow is it not a marvelous t hiug thai
the outcome nl all t I'csc horrors should
lie a nation such as I his, in which every
individual seems to led a personal inter
est in his sovereign? Would we not
nore naturally expect that the x.-oplc
would be roused to indignant rebellion
against a government in which it was
ever possible for such deeds to be cn
.icled ? And yet the fact faces ns that
Ureal Ilrilain is the most powerful na

strength consists in the absolute devo

Portland, Oregon, says: The atmos
phere lor miles around is thick with
smoke and ciniltrs, and burning brands
are lulling in showers. All the north
western country seems lo be bin ning up
m lorest fires. The smoke has been so
dense ill Portland for the last two or
ihrcc weeks that, loi a time, it was im
possible to sec far up the street, and the
sun and moon looked like balls of lire.
In the harbor the smoke has had the
effect of log, and steamers have Ikiii re
tuiicd to blow their whistles every lew
uiiiiiilis lo avoid collisions. It is esti
mated that the total damage by for
est tires in the northwest this year will
amount to $0(10,0(10. Several farm
houses have Ikcii burned, wilh stables,
produce and stores. Several thousand
colds of wood have Ikcii consumed.
Yesterday the (lames swept down on
the settlement ol Cedar Mills and left the
country barren. The icople in some in
stances had scarcely time lo cscnK and

Hong so thick along the regular roads.
An extensive lire is raging in southern
Oregon, south of Rosebud, and a niun
Ur of houses have been burned.
Some ol the forest tires arc the work of
tramps. If they arc not treated well at
uny place, they start tires out ol revenge.
A number were run outol the Mclx'tin set
tlement, in southern Oregon, the otlier
day, nnd taking to the woods started a
tire. It was discovered in time and ex
tinguished, and a posse of men started
alter the tramps and captured three.
Koks were put about their necks and
they were strung up lor some time and
then let down and thrashed soundly,

rri'y. hx-ehanuii Jake Kilrain is now
in the elutehes ol the law. He was eap
tnreil ahout seven o'elock this morning
as he stepped trun the Norlnlk hnat on
arrival nl her whnrl. When Kilrain
walked olVlht ii;u-' platdc aveompaiiied
hv his wile, serueaiil Frank Tanner
greeted him wilh the.se words: "How
do. jnke, marshal l'rey wants to see
"All riht J mil ready to jo with yon."
The sergeant was armed wilh the
pn-ner authority, viz: A warrant issued
hy Governor Jaekson for Kihain's ar
rest Itv virtue ol a requisition made on
hii.i hy (Iovernor Lowry, of Mississippi.
U l.cn apprehended hy the sergeant, Kil
rain wailed only lony enough to get his
ha together, and sent them wilh
his wile to his residenee in this city. He
Ilk n entered a carriage and was driven
lo the central police station, lie was
no:, put under lock and key.'as is custom
ary wilh i hose apprehended for any mis
demeanor, hut was allowed to rest him
selt in C'aptain Iranian's private room.
Kilrain was not at all upset hy his ar
rest, I nil look matters coolly as he en
joyed a nice break last In mi a near hv
restaurant. Kilrain is looking' well,
lie is somewhat tanned owing to ex
posure on the hcach at Hid Point ; his
eyes are bright, and his general appear
;imv is that of a man in perlirt health.
His moustache, which was shaved oil
pi ior to his tight with Sullivan, is grow
ing now, and altogether he resembles his
appearance when he was a trainer lor
the Oriel Honl Club several seasons ago.
Jake weighs about lioo pounds; and out
wardly he bears no marks whatever ol
his recent encounter with Sullivan, and
if lie was injured, the rest he has had,!
and sui f bathing at Old l'oiul, have
cflcetcd a cine, lake regrets thai he
could nol outline Ins lul urecoursc, owing
to the uneci luiiily as to what would he
done wilh linn by (iovernor Lowry. lie
said: "Iliad intended all along lo give
iii self up, and was only waiting to see;
wiiat they would do with Sullivan. I
thought it was littler lo do thai than to
keep dodging around the country trying
to evade arrest. Thev would have
hounded me anyhow until they captured
uic, and I did not care to leave the
country, as all my interests are here, and
I think lean do well, when once more
I am free. I nfortualcly, however, I
ea me home a lew days too soon.
Had I waited a liltlelonger, 1 would have
known what was don lo Sullivan, and
then wou'd have known what to exjHcl
myself. Of course I exjKvt lo get the
same that he does. If it is a line and six
months in jail, then I will get it loo."
"If thal'should be the result, Jake,
what will you do after serving your sen
tence?" iiupiired a reporter.
"Oh, I don't know. I have not made
any plans lor the future. I have several
dlcis from combinations to go on the
road, and any one of them would pay me
prclly well. I suppose I will havclogivc
up all such ideas now until I fine what
they are going to do with uic down
In relation to the tight he said that
Sullivan was in prime condition, anil
that he considered Muhloou the best man
in the world to handle the big fellow; in
fact, he could not have Ikcii gotten into
sm Ii condition by uny other man.
When asked his own condition, Kilrain
would say but little. lie said: "I was
not as strong as I expected to be, and
Sullivan much stronger than wc thought
hiin to be."
"A great many people think that
Mitchell did not handle you projierly,
Jake," said the reporter.
"Oh, 1 guess he did as well as he knew
how," was the reply.
About this time Kilrain's friends be
gan to drop in; among them was Joe
Whyte, his lawyer, It was at first thought
that an attempt would be made to get
out a habeas corpus lor his release from
custody. Hut lair dcvclopmcnls in the
case show this ionise has lieen aban
doned, Kilrain having decided to go at
ouec on the requisition to Mississippi.
Marshal h'rey telegraphed the news of
kihain's capture to (loverner Lowry
cailv this morning, and il has becnai-
:;;::gid to scud Kilrain, accompanied by
Captain Fainan ami Sergeant Tanner,
f h'.y will probably leave to-night lor
M lysssippi, Si'eivcy has been maintained
b Ihe police, as it ts now known that
on i he IMUli of July (iovernor Lowry
made the requisition on liovcruor Jack
son, who immediately issued a warrant
lor Kihain's arrest. This was received hv
the marshal on July 31 , and he at oucc
lieti iled olhccrs lo keep a sharp lookout
for Kilrain, who was known to lc in the
vicinity (if Norfolk; and every morning
for the past two weeks, the incoming
boats have been watched. All this time
detective Norris was cavorting around
llic country and the ncwspajiers were
full id reports about his doings. The
Baltimore police, however, laid low, and
luially were successful. Marshal Frcy is
Itcrfcctlv satisfied with the legality of
Kihain's arrest, ami said, "1 have had
many illegal papers thrust at mc but
would not touch any of them until 1 got
a warrant direct troin( iovernor Jackson;
then I got to work. You see, if the pa
pers were in the least faulty, then Kil
rain's arrest would be illegal, and he
could move his release on a habeas cor
pus; but as the matter now stands, in
H'V judgment everything is (icrlectly
straight and the only thing is to turn
1; i ut over lo the Mississippi authorities.
There is no case against him in this State;
and all wc hail to do was lo arrest him
on the requisition of another Stale."
Latest developments arc to the etlect
that Kilrain wilt do nothing here, but
will go to Mississippi and make his light
Irclore the com Is ot ili.il Slate. He will
certainly leave Baltimore in charge of
Capl. l:arnan and sergeant Tanner to

Southern overland train arrived at Dili)

lected, the telegraphic intelligence of the
Lalhrop tragedy having preceded the
arrival ol the tram; and the sleeping ear
in which Justice Field was silling was at
once besieged by I nitcd Stales olhciah
and newspajter men. Justice Field main
tained his quiet demeanor, and replied to
the press representative when asked to
narrate the particulars of the shooting
is follows: 1 can tell von the story
a lew words. For the ilast few months

quiet, gentlemanly official, though I onl
met him twice while away from Los
Angeles. He asked me in thai city when
1 intended to return, and accompanied
mc, taking a seat in the sleeping car op

Atlanta, ('.a., August 14. In reply to
the statement of acting Postmaster
ficucral Clarkson sent out to the Associ
ated Press in relerence to the appoint
ment of the negro clerk Penny to a
position in Atlanta postoflice, the Con
stitution will say to-morrow in a doulile
headed editorial': "That the authorities
in Washingtifti are dclerinined to distort
the facts relative to the appointment of
llic negro Penny to a place m the Atlanta
poslolficc is clearly shown liv the tele
gram which we printed yeslcrdity. Nearly
every statement attrihiited to the acting
Postmaster ('cneral Clarkson in that
telegram is false on the lace of it. anil the
telegram may justlv lie regarded as a
delilieiatc attempt on thep irl of officials
supposed to he close to the adininislra
lion to deceive the pulilic with relerence
to even that has licconic notorious. Mr.
Clarkson says that the Atlanta post
master Cicucral Lewis appointed Charles
C. Penny who stood at I he head of I he
civil service list of eligihlcs. This is false.
When Lewis appointed Penny he w.islhc
lowest una list of two, and Lcwisdid not
discover until afterwards that Sturgis,
the white applicant, was not cligihlc, lor
he appointed him to a clerkship in
another department nevt day. Lewis
himself says lliat he appointed Penny to
a position in t lie registry ilepartniciit
Iieeausc he would there lie less lialilc to
ciiiue in contact wilh the pulilic. Hut
Mr. Clarkson says that Penny was
assigned to work in the register division;
not in the same room with the young
lady, hut in another. The impression
here sought to he left on the pulilic mind
is lalsc. Lx-postmnstcr Kcnl'oe who
Knows a great ileal more aliout the
workings of the poslofficc here than
Lewis, says that the clerks in the registry
tep.irtiueiit are necessarily lirought into
out.ici and association. Mr. Clarkson
-ays that "the young lady and hcrfalhcr,
.vho was superintendent of the registry
livision, and had the assignment of
clerks, liolh resigned Iieeausc a negro had
i urn appointed to a place in the office."
That this is absolutely false, is shown liv
Mr. Clarkson himself, who goes on lo
sayth.it there were live negro clerks in
the postoflice under the Democratic nost-
inaslcr. This altcmpl at white washing
will not lie siicccsslul. People ol Atlanta
know what thev arcalioul; anil, in this
rcssivc, lilicral city, puhhc sentiment
is never nl limit in mailers ol this kind.
H all tluil Mr. Clarkson has said is li ne.
how is il th.-ii Mr. Van Winkle, a Neniili-
Iichu, refuses to remain oiiCencral Lewis'
lioud ? If the postmaster did not violate
the Civil Service law. how is il th.it
ludge lleurv II. T omnkins comes oil his
liond on that very ground, ami shows
t hat the ,'iiiioiniiuciit ot a ucl'to was de
lilicriitc iiiid incxetisalile ?
'The Constitution assures Mr. Clarkson
til. neither the administration nor lim
it it.; servants will lie permitted to .slim
ier and misrepresent Atlanta.
Washington, August 1 I. The ahovc
lispatch from the Atlanta Constitution
was shown lo Acting PostiiiastcrC.eiicriil
Clarkson to night and he was asked
what lie had lo sav ill regard lo it. He
lid: "I have no wish to follow the
mailer mi. I staled ollicial facts, the
literal truth. The Cousiitiilion seems to
,ive liccn the original and inspiring mc
ii I Ihe whole sensation gotten un
purely lor partisan etlect as an apiieal
ig.nusl the appointment ol colored pen
ile to office. The facts arc as I staled
hem. Penny was drawn from the list of
ligililes. I le was put in the registry di
vision where the white girl's father", .-is
upcrnitenileiil, hail assignment ol all the
Icrks. The superintendent first asked
whether he could lie kept for four wars.
The postmaster told him that he could
not tell him that. lie then resigned. It
seems he was willing to work four vcars
ilh a colored man, hut not a' lew
mouths. There has liccn no trouble as
Postmaster Lewis' bond. While one
iillein.-in may have asked to withdraw
Irom it, several other good men m At-
inla, native .Southern men of courage,
i'Iio arc not afraid to stand by a man in
right position, volunteered to go upon
the bond . -Hid made it much lietier than
ctorc. Il is no wonder thai, since the
slorv h:is gone lo the couiiirv, there is
in altciupt on the pin t ol Atlanta to ex-
lam it. I he truth is Postmaster Lewis
lid untiling more than was right, and no
iiiioiini ot misrepresentation on account!
i race prcpiuicc can oisiori actual l.-icl
into auvthing else than truth. 1 hciiosl-
laster iuslcad of trying lo put a clerk at
t nc same desk with a while girl, as the
Atlanta papers first printed it and sent
il North, took t lii-iii lo the superiiitciul-
nl of the registry division, who had the
issignmcul ol the clerks, and, moreover.
was llic white girl's lather; and the col-
ircd man was put in another room.
'here was no more justification in the
ilhcr and daughler resigning than there
would have been if Ihey had resigned
when the Democratic postmaster had live
negro clerks in lie same olhcc. ThcCon-
lilr.ion admits that llicre were oulv
wo men on llic eligible list. The va
ancy to fill was ill the registry division
ir which the negro was iiia!iiicd. 'flic
Ihcr man was chosen the next d.-iv for
iiiolher vacaiicv in the office and which
tcaucy he was more competent to till,
he spirit of the Constitution mul those
represents, simply represents those
who arc unwilling to accept Ihe negro its
cili.cn, and w ho are unwilling to let
llic colored icop!c show their capacity to
hold clerkships or othcrgovcruineut posi
tions." Convicted and Hi-nU'iiccd.
