I hope, plead in my extenuation for my present delay la expressing to you, and through yoa to tue ladies of your most patriotic anso-clation, tne sincere and earnest thanks of the Association of the Army of Tennessee, Louisiana Division, for yonr highly valued and appreciated services, on our confederate decoration day. Just recently passed. Your floral ollertngs were niont beautiful, greatly admired and chaste, and these, associated with your day's devotion to this noble, sisterly and patriotio task, are gratefully remeiuoered and acknowledged by your veteran brothers of onr Association of the Louisiana LUvlelon oi tae Army of Tennessee. . Decoration day, the 6th of April, inaugurated. by the Ladies' Confederate Memorial Association, and adopted by your veteran brothers ot Louisiana, was tor the confederate veterans of tue Louisiana Division of tan Army ot Tennessee a two-fold eventful knd saored day, as it was also the appointed day on which we unveiled the magnitlcent statue surmounting our association tomb ia the beautiful Mtetairie Cemetery, in soldierly memory of General Albert Sidney Jonnston. As viewed from the speaker's stand our tomb, crowned by the lifelike and superb statue almost a breathing and a moving statue of oar beloved commander, who jleided up his life ou the field of Ishilob a willing sacnooe on tue altar of his country Just one quarter ot a century ago that day, appeared wreathed in living dowers ot every dye and of everv perfume, and assuming, too, every conceivable shape and form.

We were not long in discovering, in the splendid and consummate arrangement and disposition of ttiem around and abont our tomb, your deft, loving, sisterly hands, stirred-by woman's unswerving devotion. Words wholly f all In attempting to convey to you, onr sisters of the south yon who suffered for the common cause more thaa w, as soldiers, ever sufTered-how highly and deeply and sensibly we, yonr vetoran brothers, appreciate and value the oonsecrated labor of love and duty to wnioh yoa dedicated that enduring day, to say nothing of the days of previous preparation. The soldiers of the confederacy have other monuments yet to lift on blgu to challenge aud arrest the attention of posterity, and thus to Instruct, tnrough tbese, lessons ef courageous devotion to principle which have never beeu equaled in the annals of history. The soldiers, indeed, wuo wore the gray can, never pause in erecting statues and monuments until they shall have honored themselves by performing but the simplest and plainest dictate of justice to unexampled heroism and surpassing and peerless uevotloa by capping aad crowning all this patriotic memorial work; with a superbly chaste, magnificently proportioned and au-geUo statue, before wmch all the world will bow in respectful admiration and reverence, a statae reared la proud-speaking and proclaiming evidence and, in precious remembrance, of the purest, the BUDllmest and the most self-eaorlflcing heroism eartn has ever witnessed a heroism and a patriotism whloh inade oar soldiers invincible, and our short-lived nation immortal in its never equaled record of Indestructible fame; a statue commemorative ot the heroism of onr mothers, ot our wives, ot onr sisters, and of our sweethearts; a statae raised by the men of the south to the women of the south In aitectiouate aad tender recognition of tneir unexampled suffering and fortitude, of their long, uncomplaining endurance, of their faithful love and Unfaltering support, and of their steady and truly matchless devotion tor the raase and for the defenders-of the confederate south.

A Popular Institution In Mississippi. Correspondence of the Picaynne.1 CLINTON, Miss., June 29, 1887. Special -disnarnbna In Tnnr Mlnmm ImvA given a faithful summary of the interesting exercises, connected with the eommenco-menc here. Clinton was once the home of governors and senators and distinguished civilians. More thaa fifty years have passed since the initial steps were taken to build a college hare. It was first plsoed under the management of the Presbyterian denomination, bnt some years afterwards it was V" cuarge -oi tne .Baptists, who were then and still are the Inuriln rvtili'lnna In. fluenoe in the state. Xhey have always re- 5""" tti? couege as tne "cnua or providence." Before' the IaM ItII wtkr th liatf raised and Invested more than $100,000 aS en' dowment, which was all swept away by the uinuurvunes ox war. (soarceiy fiuuaings were. left, asd they were fearfnlly in need of re-' pMir. Soon after the close of the war. Dr. Walter Hiilrnan. a g adns'e ot Brown, atthe earnest solicitation of the board ot trustees, assumed the presidency. He br.mlu oiuer out ot chaos, and ret abed thn hniriina Tmt f. T. Martin raised to ray ou a det contracted In efforts to save the property v " ui. nuimaa resignea in 187a. and the present Incumbent, Dr. W. S. W ebb, a grauuate ot Madison University, was elected to take his plaoe. He had an almost impossible task to perform to carry on the wora ot a college without money or resources. The endowment was gone, and the people, greatly impoverished by the war. had lost not only the ability to educate, but very largely the desire also. At the end ot three J'ears, a considerable debt to the faculty had been contracted ; bat these noble consecrated men came to the rescue of the college and saved it to the denomination and the state. They proposed to dismiss one of their number, tnose remaining to do the work of all for what they oould get, salary or n salary. Since that time they have receipted for tbeir salaries at the end ot each year, whether paid or not. The course of study ia full and complete, and the faculty are able to carry it ou only by giving six hours each day to the classroom. The college ls popular with all classes ot the people, but especially with those who desire the best moral training along with Intellectual discipline for tneir sons. This ls one of the most popular schools In the state. The number ot students this year is 220. The support of the college is made a part of the denominational work by the Baptists. Their individual gifts are small but tbey come from the heart. It giTes temporary support, and It sends hither many of tne best boys ia the state for education, to have the sympathy of this great denomination. Year by year the influence of the college widens. Eight different states and territories are represented. Its graduates to-day may be fonnd in Kurope, Asia; Africa as well as in America. college in the souta has a brighter outlook. Some fifty of tbe present number of students have the Christian ministry In view. It is a paying Investment to put money in this coHeir-. It is patriotio as well as Christian benevolence. Kll'orts are making to enlit the sympathies of patriots and philanthropists ootli in tbe norm and south that an endowment muy be raised and greater fatalities provided for this famous institution. To endow this college so as to enable it to do still better work would be a consummation wort by alike ol philanthropy and Christian civilization. During the meeting of the Alumni Association ou yesterday, the money wtia raised to repair the college chapel, and etlort looking towards an endowment were under consideration. Some of the speakers paid hlgb compliments to tlieir beloved alma mater. Dr. C II. Otkln. of Iea Female College, and Pror. W. E. Berry, of Blue Mountain Female College, ascribed their success in life mainly to the superior-training they had reoeived Within these clatsio wUs. Dr. Z. T. Leavell only regretted that he had never been brassed witn tbe laciiities enjoyed by the young men educated here. Mr. J. II. Anderson, of tbe Kosciusko Star, complimented the faculty of the college for the hun moral and intellectual training given by the institution, but tnouKht that something more should be donetolmnuo the students with a love for tbe state of Mississippi, and to counteract the tendency of young men to seek tbrirfor-tanesin tlte west. He contended that the possibilities of Mississippi are Illimitable, and braius and will-power are the only things wanted to her full development. Our colleges, wnether state, denominational or private, should all Instill into the hearts of the students a supreme love ot the state and a subordinate love for the nation Mississippi first, and the tin'ou aiterwards. He opposed the Blair bill on tne ground that its tendency was to infringe tbe rights of the state. Each state should be permitted to educate its own children that they may feel that they owe their greatest obligations to their native stuto. Mr. T. L. Webb bore off the prize for the best drilled cadet in Capt- Webb's Mississippi College Kitles. Tbe prize was awarded in most elegant style by Mr. Albert Bozeman last night. On the same occasion Rev. '. T. leaveli presented the Trotter gold medal to Mr. L. E. Aleucer for the finest oration delivered by a member of the Junior class. Dr. C. II. Otkln conferred the Merrill gold medal upon Mr. Sain Miller for tha best senior essay. Dr. W. 8. Webb presented to Mr. O. A. Jiomix the Price gold medal for greatest proficiency In elocution. Tue commencement which ended last night was the most brilliant ever known here. The yourg men sent forth are expected to be heard from in tha pulpit, ia the schoolroom and at the Dar. Your correspondent has seldom seen a finer class than that consisting of the nine young men, wnose names aud subjects were given iu yesterday's special to the Picayune. Too high praise cannot be given to the unbounded hospitality of the citizens of this little village. It expands to meet every demand. It. L. X. The Late Judge Kennard. Eulogy Pronounced by Henry Dufilho, Esq., at the Memorial Meeting of. the New Orleans liar. At the memorial services recently held In the civil district court In honor of deceased barristers the following eulogy upon Judge Kennard was pronounced by Mr. Henry Dufilho, of the New Orleans bar : May It please tbe court : I do not feel that I can permit this occasion to pass without Joining in the tribute which has just been paid to the memory of the late Judge Kennard. As one who was a law student in his office for several years, I had opportunities of observing his character closely, and when I reflect that but a short tlmn ago he was here ot earth as we are to-day, and' that now he has crossed the dark river from whose shores there ls no return, I can but conclude that the great poet spoke truly when he Bald : "Death loves a shining mark." When sped the shaft which pierced our friend's bosom, and struck him down in his prime and usefulness, there was taken from among us one who in the various relations ot lu'o bore himself in an exemplary manner. As father, husband, citizen, man, t need not speak ot him here ; but I cannot, even at tbe risk of being considered superfluous, refrain from making some allusion to his qualities and merits as a professional man. The love of justice was a marked trait In the character of Judge Kennard. He coo-eiuered it a bright, particular star in the legal llvmamenr, created to guide and direct us in our course through the shoals aud shallows, the rocks and crags, the storms and tempests ot litigation. And when once he saw where in tho heavens gleamed that star, he ever remained true and unfaltering in his good parpose, as needle to the pole, without its variations. He had a sovereign contempt for all that was mean and low lu the profession. He never laid snares for tne trusting and uu-walry; he resorted to no dar or devious ways, to none of the Quirk, Gammon and Snap methods of the moral dwarf or the intellectual Mephistopheles. But on the contrary, ever with head erect and steady gaze, he trod the straight unbroken path of honor and Integrity, fair as a foe, fearless as an advocate, faithful to duty and to the principles of his profession. Men may differ in their faiths. The atheist laugns when we speak to him of heaven ; the man of hope exclaims : "Tis not the whole of life to live. Nor all of death to die !" But however in matters spiritual men may differ, they must sdl concur that to htm whose life has been well spent there is due from his fellows honor and reverence. Ours la not a sentimental profession, its very nature would preclude this ; but the waters of our hearts can never become so thoroughly dried np that we esnnot find a flower of affaction to lay upon the bosom of a dead friend and brother. Mrs. Clias. Smith ot Jimes. Ohio, writes : I have used every remedy tor Sick Headache I oould hear of for tbe past fifteen years, bat Carter's Little Liver Pills did me more good than all the rest.

An American Dialect Society. Is it possible to establish an American dialect society f asks a correspondent of Science. It is certainly time. Year after year the oldest districts of tbe United States and Canada are getting Jess .distinguished by those peculiarities in their vernacular which to the student of history and philology are of tbe utmost interest. Pnb-lio schools, many newspapers, cheap hooks, a taste for reading, a notion that "old time" ways and dialect ate not "elegant," and above all, the more constant coram dnication between different parts of tne-coantry are doing much to tone down the people of the United States to what, from the philologist's point of view, is one dead level, lu time tbe mountaineers of Tennessee and tbe hill country of the Caroliuas, the "crackers" ot Georgia and the picturesquely talking folk of tho Arkansas bottoms and the lower Mississippi, will have lost many of their present peculiarities of speech. Even the New Englanders, I am told (for I have not lived in America for more than twenty years), are fast abandoning many of those dialectic peculiarities which to a philologist are so suggestive. Even the Virginians, since they hare gone into the great world, are no ionger so readily "betrayed" by their speech. Now, therefore, is the time to collect vocabularies of these local dialects, with specimens gleaned from, printed worus illustrating the use of any particular word. Iiooks, almanacs, election addresses, and a host of similar ephemeral literature might be gathered and deposited in the National Library. Mr. Cable, by his novels, has done much to preserve tbe quaint Creole Louisiana speech; Mr. Johnston has in the same way done as much for Georgia dialect ; MissMurfree for the Tennessee mountaineer; Mr. Page for the Virginians; a host of writers, imprimis Mr. Lowell, for the New Euglanders; and, not to go over the long roll of writers in American dialects, Mr. Harris has (shown us what a wealth of folk-lore and folk-speech there is to bo garnered among the southern negroes. But the next generation will have no such easy task as the' present one. Even in slow-going England the folk-lore society aud the English dialect society came quite late enough into tho held, and lound that iu a few years more the school boards and the desire to be "genteel'' would have effectually effaced those old world differences of tongue which even iu 15'JS, when Tuttenham was writing his "Arte of English Poesie," had bogun to be blurred. Already many a precious relic of the past haa been forever lost, anil we can only be thankful that so much has been preserved. In America I speak, of course, of the old colonial sections there still linger peculiarities, and even bits of folk-lore, which have vanished out of the districts in tbe mother countries from which the immigrants came. Now, therefore, is the time for snatching up what still remains, and I anestiou whether there are not in tho United .States and in lower Canada quite as many dialects as there are in England. The "Pennsylvania Dutchman" has uven yet peculiarities in speech easily detected by those who know them, and there is scarcely au old btato of tho nniou of .which the same could not be said. It is a singular fact that wheu two yonmr men meet they address euoii other, '-How are you, old man!" and that when two old fellows meet they say, "My boy." Little but good.
