trrom ine in. x . inoune.
It was two or tlirco years afeo that Gari
baldi, in one of those fervid poeim which
make ns wonder wiiere tne true neld or this
rarely gifted genius lies whether as orator or
eoldier or poet said 01 lxmis Napoleon, that
the time would come when men might be
permitted to pity him; until then it was oar
, duty to Late mm. no world baa been wait
ing anxiously for that day, and thus far with
ont immediate prospect of fruition. He will
not allow us the luxury of ceasing to regard
bim as a noxious and dangerous thing. It has
'seemed, several times in the course of the
last year, as if the day were at hand when
we might lay aside our attitude of hostility
to lano, and begin to contemplate that charac
ter of the- elderly citizen, the fond husband
and devoted father, the somewhat stupid and
tiresome, but, on the whole, well-meaning
bourgeois, which, we. are convinced, lies
latent somewhere in the possibilities of M.
Bonaparte's life. Ilia worst faults have been
those of the false position into whish the
accident of his mother's husband's name has
forced him. Without a particle of the Corsi
can fire and ambition, he has felt that, be
cause he was christened Napoleon, he must
straddle along in the vast foot-prints of the
great Italian. Unlike the bird of Andersen's
etory, he is an Ugly Duck, whose life has
been rendered wretched by the ciroumstance
of having been born in an eagle's nest. This
supposed necessity of doing something
worthy of his name led him
into the grotesque follies of Stras
burg and Boulogne, and tormented his
idle exile in London and New Jersey. After
the blind worship of a name had raised him
from his contemptible obscurity to the chair
of the Presidency, this torturing gad-fly of
Napoleonic tradition made him the tool of the
other audacious and needy gamesters who
were willing to risk their nothing against the
chances of a vast and dazzling success. That
the game succeeded was simply the conse
quence of the time at which it was attempted.
France was thoroughly exhausted by its three
long years of revolutionary effort, and an
honest man in the Presidency would have
made the republio as permanent as the empire
became. The fatal error of the French was
not in accepting the coup d'etat, but in the
thoughtless levity with which they gave, the
keys of the commonwealth to a servant of
whom they knew nothing, and who proved
a thief. ;
During his long and superfioially prosper
ous reign it was natural that the resentment
of the honest world should elevate him into
a sort of dignity whioh never properly be
longed to him. What careless observers,
dazzled by the gilding of the new and showy
throne, called his success was simply the re
sult of the general industry and genius of
France. There was the same apparent pros
perity under Louis Philippe, and he was as
. little the cause of it as Bonaparte was after
him. If there was an added life and move
ment in certain directions, it was because
the English contagion of railroad building had
invaded Franoe, and Morse had taught the
world the nse of the telegraph. Paris was torn
down and built up again by that king of
: the gnomes, Baron Ilaussmann, loading the
city with debt and overcrowding its streets
with those clamorous artisans who have since
overturned the throne. But the sarcastic
King of Paris used to say that his imperial

a blunder on it. lie used generally to treat
the august suggestions of the uneasy meddler
, with contempt, salving all wounds of dignity
by assignments of eligible oorner-lots to Lou
Lod and his mother. But to the unthinking
tourist," and to those foreigners whose minds
are so constituted that they can see but one
nftrson in an era. the dreamy and listless rre-
tender of the Tuileriea seemed to be doing
everything ; wnicn tne zorty minions or
Frenchmen wrought in twenty years.
He sorely strained his own powers of illu
' sion once or twice. The fiascos of the Crimea
and of . Italy were pufficiently obscured by the
smoke of burnt gunpowder to hide his imbe
cility from the people at large; but the diplo-
mrT vViinh - tmlminftted with Sadawa. and
whose aftermath was seen in the retreat from
Luxemburg,' began to open many mostunsas
Dioious eyes. He seemed to feel last year that
he was growing to be but an indifferent
SDhinx: there were signs of his people guess
ing his riddle, and bo, on the most frivolous
nretext which the history of diplomacy re
cords, he rushed Into the most unequal fight
ever seen in tne History or, wars,
It seemed all the way from Weissemburg to
Chiselhurst that the time set by uaribaidi tor
pity to begin was come. Nothing was ever
seen more forlorn than that oomedy of the
victory of Saarbruck followed by the rout of
Worth. It was enough to move the stoniest
, heart to hear of him sauntering about among
the sutlers.' savine mournfully. "Ion ma

of fighting than his boy had, crooning the
old Napoleonic phrases about the tete Tar

through the thin line of the enemy. There
was a positive sensation of relict to every
feeling heart .when be was safe at Wil
belmshohe, free trom tne wearing respon
enmities of policy and war. Those were
happy days. The Kaiser's oook was with him,
and the sharp Castilian accent of his spirited
spouse was away, in tne words of Mr. Whit
man, "he loafed and invited his soul." Borne
' times he roused himself and made little
speeches disparaging the republio, but this
gentle exercise rather aided digestion. He
had "a good time" at William's Heights, and
we felt a sort of sympathy with him in those
days. We heard of his expanding waistband
with the joy of the just over the wicked that
i" have ceased from troubling.

of ambition again in bis peaceful breast, ad

ONLY IN FUN.
From the N. Y. Times.
One natural consequence of the attention
which we have called to Jeff Davis treason
able harangues is that the Democratio party
begins to repudiate him. Not being quite
bereft of their senses, the leaders see plainly
that a platform constructed by Jeff Davis will
never win a residential election, bo tbe
Democratio papers are engaged in that well
known process, which is described in homely
language as "pulling the wool over our eyes.
We need not mind what Davis says so we
are assured. lie does not mean it; it is only
his "w ay" of talking; and even if he did mean
what he says, nobody pays any attention to
bim. He is only one man, he it a little
"cracked," etc., etc. These tactics will re
mind many people of the line taken by the
burglar when he is caught at his work. Ho
has a crowbar, a jimmy, and skeleton-keys on
his person, it is true, but they are not in
tended for felonious purposes. The crowbar
is in reality his toothpick, and the keys are
only meant to wind up Lis watch and open
his wife's piano.
Before the public were aroused to the Im
portance of this new Btumping trip of Jeff
Davis, no Democratio paper condemned his
speeches. Everywhere in the South he was
received with bands of musio, processions,
and other indications of popularity. Young
ladies insisted upon kissing him, and old
gentlemen called him "their President."
What is tbe good of denying these facts?
They stand upon record in Southern papers.
.We have not misrepresented them in any
way we tell the tale exactly as it is told,
with every symptom of pride, in the South
ern journals. The Columbia (S. C.) Phcenix
informs us that when Mr. Davis was called
upon to address ma friends "he could but
speak tne honest sentiments of his heart.
Just so that is what we have pointed out.
Then tbe Phamix goes on: "His views may
not be agreeable to some people." We do
not mind admitting that they are not agreea
ble to us, and there are a good many more in
this part of the country who feel much about
tne same as we do on tee subject. The
course adopted by the Southern Democrats,
and their sympathizers hereabouts, is as mean
as it is dishonest. I be moment the opinions
they put forth are criticized in plain terms.
they cry out, "You are tryiDg to make politi
cal capital out of ns. You do not quote the
context of Jeff Davis speeches. We say that
both these pleas are evasive. The quotations
we have made in these columns from Jeff
Davis' speeches do not admit of being ex
plained away, and in our news columns we
have printed the speeches unabridged. There
ttlAV VATA fnv Anvhnilv tn rAHfl at: f nil Idnnlk
What an absurdity, then, it is for any journal
to pretend that the "Context" could alter the
meaning of the particular passages we have
quoted in leading articles. It is equally non
sensical to pretend that anybody wants to
make political capital out of Jeff Davis. We
would all much rather be without the kind
of "capital" which he offers to our notice.
But it is very important that the people
should not be in the dark with regard to the
sentiment existing at tne boutn. is it not a
fact that Jeff Davis has produced more effect
on Southerners by his speeches, and brought
out their sympathies more strongly, than
any other man who has gone among them for
years past? Of course, the Democrats will
try to persuade the publio that all this means
notning wnat else is tnere left for them
to do? They dare not take their cue
from the South, and so they try to
hoodwink the . people about the real
state ; of affairs there. Let ns see
whether they can invent a policy whioh their
Southern friends will be willing to adopt.
That will be the best test, and when they
come to faoe it they will see, if they fail to
do so now, what a difficult game they have to
play. The Republicans will win, because
they need not try to please traitors on the
one band and bamboozle true- citizens on tne
other and when we see the ridiculous candi
dates who are at present being "trotted out"
for the Presidency, we are confirmed in the
opinion we have always held that they will
win witn uenerai urant at tneir nead.
CHEVY SLYME IN CHICAGO.
Frrnn tht If. T. World.
"AU men of genius," remarked Mr. Mon-
tague Tigg, " have their peonliarities. It is
the peculiarity of my friend Chevy Slyme to
be always around tne oorner." wnatover
trivial points of difference there may be
between the nnregenerate Mr. Slyme and the
Beverend Mr. Tyng, Junior, the peculiarity
which the eye of tnendsnip discerned and
the tongue of friendship proclaimed to be
the essential characteristic of the former,
the eye of fclnaiy contemplation peroeives
to be the essential charaoteristio of the
latter . also. Mr. Tyng, Junior, is al
ways around tne oorner. it tnere: are any
ritualistic sensibilities to be irritated to an
guish and despair, or any episcopal corns to
be trodden on with particular violance, the
amiable Mr. Tyng, biding his time around
the corner of the sanctuary, invariably ap
pears in season to perform tins congenial and
pbilantnropio function. wnerever two or
three gallons of hot water are gathered to
gether there is Tyng, Junior, in the midst of
tbem. Having frightened the starched souls
of tbe Beverend Mr. Boggs and the Beverend
Mr. Stubbs from their propriety and been
rebuked therefor, Mr. Tyng subsided into the
galling routine of the duties of a parish priest.
lint though he disappeared for a time from
publio view, those who had watched his
career knew that he would emerge again.
It could not be that 'new chances of use.
fulness in the way of provoking prelates
would not present themselves to him,
nor that ne was not privately pining
for new worlds to conquer, ms cnanoe, it
appears, has cow come. Mr. Cheney, by the
sentence of a regularly constituted eocl isia
tical court, has been deposed from the minis
try of the Episoopal Church. As a man ne
cessarily submits himself to the discipline of
any body when he enters it, the sentenoe of
that court, it would appear to most men, con-
eluded, so far as proceedings within the pale
of the Church were concerned, the matters
tried before it. To Tyng aliter visum. He
cot only wrote a letter to the deposed Mr
Cheney to the effect that Cheney was the
Charch, but he hastened to Chicago to offer
his personal gratulations to a clergyman who
had f ucceeded in making himself as muoh of
a nuisance to the bishop of Illinois as the
Beverend Mr. Tyng had constituted, himself
in respect of thbir right reverences of New
York and New Jersey. Thereupon Mr, Che
ney ar pears to Lava Invited Lieu to preach.
lum-ii'uoh as the tenure of Mr. Cheney to the
pulpit of his own churoh was doubtful, aud as
the right of Mr. Tyng to occupy it by his in
tit&tion was more doubtful still, it was not to
be expected that Mr, Tyng could refuse so
excellent an opportunity at once to please Mr,
LLtniy and himself, to displease the consti-
tuted authorities of his Church, and to make a
little senpation. And when there addition
ally arrived to him the allurement of a formal
episcopal prohibition to preach in the pulpit
in which ! Mr. Cheney had invited him to
preach the temptation became irresistible.
Accordingly he preached, or as some
slave to grammatical analogy has insisted that
we should rather put it, he "praught." He
told bis hearers that the Charon had "o busi
ness to constrain "the individual conscience"
of any one of its clergymen "illuminated by
the word of God, and the liberty of the
Christian in his relations to the Lord;" he
violently intimated that Bishop Whitehouse
was "Anti-Christ," and lhat excommunication
from the Episcopal Church was about the host
stroke of luck that could befall one of its
Now all this may be true. At least it is
not the business of a secular journal to dis
cuss its truth. But why, thuu, upon the
showing of Mr. Tyng, Junior, doos ho not
leave the ministry of a Church for whioh he
entertains such a contempt, and which has
intimated to the person whose cause he is
pleading against it its entire willingness to
part with him? It is certain that neither the
Episcopal Church nor any other Church
allows to its clergymen perfect "liberty of
conscience," but limits that libery by demand
ing of tbem while they are in its ministry
their adhesion to its doctrines and their con
formity with its rites and usages. When a
clergyman finds that his conscience will not
permit him to inculcate its doctrines or ad
ministtx its ritec, the plain andjhonest course
for bim is to leave it. The dishonest course
is to remain and take its wages while refus
ing to do its work. And the contemptible
course is to seize every chance to attack it
from within, and continually to brandish the
red flag of theological radicalism for the ex
press purpose of eliciting the papal or infu
riating the episcopal bull.
