Tba Bev, Jmf Matthow TownMsd, D. D. ox Bloanoudi Ina. Kicitmoxd, Iud, Feb, 13- To th Editor. Among the men who are being urged for appointment and recognition at the hands of the incoming administration ia the Itev. James Matthew Townsend, D. D., ot this place. Mr. Town send is put forward by colored Bepub-licans aa a fit representative of that wing of the party, and it ia believed be will receive recog nition ss such. Mr. Townsend was born at GaUipolia, Ohio, Aug. 18, 1841. He waa the only son of Will iam and Mary Ann Townsend, who were both notable members of the Methodist Church, His mother gained considerable celebrity as a ci area worker, and for many years waa a staunch advocate of the Wesley idea of aanoti-fieation which aha herself enjoyed in an eminent degree. : From early childhood young Townsend received the moat careful religious and moral training which so eminently fitted him for the active life ha hss led. He had enjoyed the advantage of a common school education and being inclined to habits of thought he laid the foundation of future usefulness by years of careful study and research. At the beginning of the late civil war he felt that it would result in emancipation of hia people and tneref ore sought the earliest opportunity .-. to taik xnr Axxa in defense of the Nation and human liberty. He enlisted in, the Fifty-fourth afasssohnsetts Volunteer Infantry, anil remained in the field until the cloee of the war. On returning home he entered Oberlin College, which he af forward left under a commission from the American Missionary Association, and subsequently waa appointed principal of the colored schools of Evansville, Ind., which position he held until 1872, when, the schools having bean thoroughly organized under the free achool era torn, he named hfa successor, resigned, and entered the ministry of his church. His career in this relation has been one continued cnain of successes, fcserving as pastor for six years, in 1878 he wss elected secretary of home and foreign missions by the General Conference, wnioh position he still holds. During these years he was three times a member of the General Conference, a commissioner on organic anion, and a delegate to the Ecumenical Couferenoe in England. To him belongs the honor of organizing and eondueting the entire missionary department of his church. And that the church, to-day, is able to maintain and support missionaries and mission churches and schools in the Indfan territory, toe West Indies, and in Africa is owing to the thorough system of organization under his wise management of the department While in the discharge of his duties aa Missionary Secretary lie has traveled quite extensively in Canada and the United HUtes, especially in the South, has made one visit to the West Indies, and teres to England and other trans atlantic countries, - He baa come in contact with men! in almost every walk of life, and his knowledge of the condition and WAKTS O All. CLASSZS. especially the negro in the South, ia aa compre hensive as that of almost any other man, be ha wmte or black. As a representative man of hia race, Mr. Townsend has probably no equal in hia own btate, and but few in the Nation. He ia a lover of hia race to the extent of being a race man. and believca that the possibilities of the oolsred race are equal to those oi any otler. everything else being equal. There is no class, as to con dition, among his people but tbtt finds in him a friend who evidences hia friendship by words and deeds of charity and kindness, wnioh amounts to mucn more than mere eourteaiee or benevolent contribution Hia successes and good fortune have not had tee effect of removing mm from any part or class of hia race, but have brought him closer to them, so that wherever be is known all alike feel tne touch of hia warm love and are inspired by ma ardent nope ana Parian g seal zor I race. As a business man, be ranks among the suc cessful. He began life a poor boy. but by in dustry and economy has been successful in a cumulating enough of this world'a gooda to pines him in deoidodly easy circumstances. His great love of his race and of justice and his strong belief in the justioe of the common eq ality of all men before the law hava led him to take an scare part in the politics of his titate and country. In this aa in every other work lie lias developed JfABXJKO ABILITY ' and now ranks among the foremost politicians of his State, In 1814 he was elected to the State Legislature by the suffrage of the Republican electors of bis (Wayne) county, and in this relation be proved himselfno less competent and efficient than in others, while the bid introduced by him to expunge from the statutes of the State those black and discriminating laws, and his able speech and unanswerable argument in support of the same make him the acknowledged champion of the cause of nis race in his own btate. No man of his raoe in the State has figured as conspicuously in the various political conventions and caucuses, from that of county to National, as has Mr. Townsend, for when not a delegate his presence has been in demand and his counsel sought both in oonventioa and caucus. In the last political contest, beginning with tha organisation of the Bepublioau National Convention at Chicago and continuing till tha noils closed on tha evening of Nov. 6. Mr. Town- aend worked incessantly. And it ia due to him. no doubt, as much or more than to anv other one man that the colored voters of the Btate of Indiana were kept ia line with tha grand old party. He is a man of strong convictions, and baa very pronounced viewa on all the leading questions effecting tne politics of this country; and as a representative Afro. -American bs evidences the possibilities of the race, and is a living refutation of the oft repeated charge that the negro la aa inferior race.'.' if, tr. iioitb.

It would certainly aeem, aa George Washington died in 1789, and even George HL, despite his sixty years' reign, departed hence in 1820, while tha American Centennial itself waa celebrated In 1876, that all claima arising in that heroic aga would hava been adjudicated long ago. But it ia not ao, and there are quite a number of eaaea still pending, and, strange aa it may appear, brand new claims are atill occasionally filed, it being determined that no statute of limitation shall work to tha disadvantage of tha heirs of any patriot who helped to call tha Nation into being.

It is in the highlv-oulored study, "Washington's Surrender of His Commission aa General of tba Army; Annapo-1 lis, Dec. 23, 1783." No exception can be taken to tha idealized serenity and dignity enthroned in tha oountenancs of the hero "first in peace, first in war. and first," etc. ; only admiration and awe are directed at the .head-gsar of Mr a Washington and her three little granddaughters. lifted aloft in a gallery." It ia to another female group in the right foreground tne two little daughters of John Carroll, "the Signer," who stands just behind them that the wouder ia directed. There are only two children by the by, p re teraara rally old looking but there are five heads, and, as you try to reduce the surplus, tha number expands to seven, though perhaps tha Signer ia responsible for two of them, but clearly not for the fifth, on the waist of the right-hand little old lady.

His Lofty and Ideal ot tne Mission of tns Journalist. Work Women Wronged Find In Him Their Defender Tne Journal- ' " ' 1st In Politics. . GOVERNMENT BT JOURNALISM. (Copyright VSSa, by Theodore Stanton.) LoHDOW, Feb. 7. S'pcii CkrraoonUnea. NB afternoon ia tha summer of . IS 85, when his revelation of ona of the seamy sides of London were convulsing tba United Kingdom, Mr. W. T. Btaad, of tha PoU ' Mall Gatett, told an American newspaper etif apondent who called to ask what t aiming at to noma back in eight yeara. "By that time." ha aaid, "I ah all be doing ona of two things wearing a conyiofa garb or bossing Great Britain." : -Before tha summer had slipped into tha autumn tha prophet waa in Holloway Jail It i a to be noted, however, that there ia yet a four yeara' margin before tha American a appoint- nmnt ia due in Northumberland atreet It oc curred to me the other morning to call and aea how Mr. Stead waa faring. At tha outsat of our interview the talk drifted to tha "Maidea Tribute." and I aaid: "If you bad that fight to make over again would yoa alter your plan of battle?"" He did not BaariATS ax rxaTAirx. No, air, I would not, and if I bad to face tba Judgment seat to-night I'd rather face it with tba record of that work ia my hand in tba full faith that it would weigh more with the Almighty than any single thing else that I hava accomplished on this earth. Those who criticise my methods overlook the fact that the usefulness of .the publication of tha "Maiden Tribute waa registered " la Westminster la tha statute book of tba Kingdom through tha law raising tba aga of oonaent Prior to tha pub lication . repeated efforts to paaa tha law had proved futile, and tha promoters and friends of tha measure bad practically abandoned hope of any immediate action. Following tba exposures of tha PoU Malt Gazrtt tha opposition waa overcome and tha bill became a law." Now, I have always thought that much of tha moral effect of the work was dissipated throngh Mr. Stead's winding np is jail, and, aa be would never b ave gone there but for tba evidence adduced before tba commission called to pass upon hia facta, it would seem aa though hia ap-pesranoe there waa in the nature of a blunder. That ia not Mr. Stead's opinion. He aaid to me: "If it waa a blunder it helped ma mora than all my successes. My enemies thought my imprisonment would crush me. What they aid wss to make a pedestal of my prison which made ma visible aod audible all over tha world. Of all the tilings I bars to be grateful for, my trial aud imprisonment eome first. " I had. However, another objection. TBB OCBXAilST the diurnal man of letters occupies a plaoe ranked by bo other profession if the work is rightly understood. In th pursuit of hia calling when facts bsv eome to the surf see touching abuses in which humanity baa a etaka, why should be not draw np a report upon the situation and lay it before hia oouabtueuta who bay the commodity, publicity, which it ia hia function to provide! if the Pbiliaunea and tha powers that be condemn then what tiureiy the ouiy possible answer ia either a white flag or a cannon bait As I take it, it wss Mr. Stead's duty to ask vba gentlemen composing the commission of inquiry Bishops, Arcn-bishopa. and politicians, not "Do you think I hava a case?" but "Here are tha facta, what are yoa going to do about it?" - I can not a." aaid Mr. Stead reflectively, after I bad advanced tins point of view, "but that ia appearing before the commission 1 acted aa I Bliouid set sgsin were tha eaaea parallel. Nothing so cripples the circulation and influence of a newspaper aa an unwUungoes or inability to prove published charges to the hilt Besides my reply to all these objections is this, 1 snc- oceded, We carried the act of Parliament Had I done otherwise I might not hava a ieceeded. Every one aaid even as it was I wsa certain to f aiL A general's strategy may be open to severe stricture, bat wbat does it matter if ha wins tha battle, or conui I 3CADK lasTAxxa, If I could have been aa wise before aa any ona ean be after tha event I might hava avoided many blander, but after all it waa well worth while exposing myself to discredit rather tbau to dimtnisa tne very forlorn ehanoe of snooess which there waa for the causa. If I had thought balf as muoa about myself at the time as my fnendaand enemies hava thought about ma since, tha act would never hava been passed to this day.' -"How dil it afreet your paper?" "It improved oar circulation, but hit us hard in oar advertisements. Wa lost every theatrical advertisement but two, thanks to a boycott organized by Mr. Irving because I had stated that a certain well-known profligate had a pea-chant for actresses. - This Mr. Irving regarded as a ainr npon tha stage, and waged war accordingly." - "Do you believe," I asked, "that truth ia commercial to-day in London?'' - "It ia in a restricted sense, but otherwise not If 100,000 persona could be induced .to lay down 1 apiece to fotmd a oaily newspaper to be organized on somewhat advanoed lines, and subscribe to it for turee years, I am couvinoed that it could be made to pay a good profit on the investment, starting in with such support There are unquestionably 100,000 persons ia I the Cmtad .Kingdom aue ana willing to ooa tribute that sum, but tne troable here, as in ail enterprise of human ingenuity, ia to bring about concerted action. ik TBsUTTitO or TflTS KATTaa while in Holloway Jail I used these words: I have not yet lost faith in the possibility of aoma of our great newspaper proprietors who will content himself wim a reasouab.e fortune, and devote the surplus of hia gigantic profits to tha development of hia newspaper aa an engine of social reform and as a means of government. And if it be impossible for those already ia tha purple to display such public spirit, then it msy be that the same spirit which led pions founders in mod val times to build cathedrals and establish colleges, may lead aoma man or woman of fortune to devote naif a million to found a newspaper tor the service, for the education, and for the guidance of the people, Tha Jewish legend which Longfellow baa versified tells how Sandalphon, the Angel of Glory, Sandalphoa, tha Angel of Prayer, stands at the portals of heaven listening to ail tho sounds ceaselessly from tha crowded earth. All the petit.oua he collects, and they torn into flowers in hia hands aa he presents them befor tha throne of Jehovah, Tue editor ia tha Sandalphon of humanity. Into hia ear are poured tne cries, the protests, tue complaints of mea who suffer wrong, aod it is his mission to present them daily before the conscience of mankind. But to do that be, or thoaa about him, must be familiar with the wants, tha wrongs, the sorrows of tba outcast residue of the human race, I do not say that editors should be oa visiting terms with the thiovea of Sovea Dials and the harlots of the New Cut, bat they auoald know those who can ted them what the Dialont-ana feel and what the outcasts ia tha Now Cut Buffer. "MKWKFAPSBS WILL KEVKB BKAXXT rt78TXFT their claims to be the tribunes of the people until every victim of injustioe whether it be a harlot ruu in by a policeman greedy of blackmail, or a tickt-t-of-leavo-man liuuted down by shadowy deteuiives. or paupers balked of their legal allowance of food eeuda into tha editorial aauctum their complaint of the Injustice which they suffer. There is something inexpressibly pathouc in tha dumbness of the masses of tue people. Toucu bnt a hair iu the head of the well-to-do, aud forthwith voa hear bis indignant protest in ilis columns of the timet. But tne milliou who hav to suffer tne rudet bnff jta of ili-iortune, the victims of olboial insolence and the brutality of the botter-cCf, tuey are as dumb as the horse which yoa may sooargs to deaia without its uttering s sound. NY hen men cease to complain of laj uUo it 1 as if th sUsntiy con fessed that God was dead. When they rre;lect to lay tneir wrongs be lore taeir f shows, it is aa if they had loat aU faita in tne reality of tbat collective conscience of society which Milton finally calls Ood's Secretary,' "for every appeal to in puoiio is s practical ooufesaion of a laitn that shuts out despair. Whea there ia prayer toere ia boost To give utterance to tue in articulate moan of tha voiceless ia to let light into a dark place; it ia almost equivalent to tns enfranchisement ot a class.

" "Do yoa believe, Mr. Stead, tuat tha Journal ism wuicu you forestmaow needs to be endowed in oraer to attain its highest usefulness?" "Yes, yoa may pat it that way if you like. Mar circulation does not make the influence of a newspaper. If it did, papers like tha 'JU-grapK would be monstrous engines of power throughout the provmoee: but the fact is they aro notning of ton kind. Soma nanera with alight circulation, say twelve or fifteen thou sand, wieia a mora potent influence tiiaa tuoee claiming ona of a quarter of a million. There la no mystery about this, Tha influence of newspaper depends far more upon the quality than upon the number of its readers. The only aristocracy I believe in ia tne aristocracy of urita. scattered tnrougnout xugiana, and lor that matter throughout the world, are a limited numoer or people wno compose this aristoc racy.

Replying to a Question aa to tha most notable instance ia his career aa a journalist of tne power of tba movable type, that is to say where the effects ware inetantlr manliest, Mr. Stead "After tha "Maiden Tribute,' the Truth About the Aavy,' an exposure or Uie condition or the English navy in 1S84 and tha need for immediate reform. Remedial action followed close on the beela of the publication, and it ia aafa to aay tbat tba whole history of English Journalism affords few mora striking illustrations of tha power of tba types in relation to imperial affairs. And this bringa ma back again to a consideration of tha real status of the journalist 1 believe ia government by Journal mm. To-day, ia England, the journalist who understands hia position can be mora of an act-man than tha majority of tnoe who figure ia Parliament aa BO BLAST UOTX BOCTXDrSO-BOAllDa. Take the ease of the navy aa an example, Tha ofhoera of tho service and tba people at tha AdW miraity were awasa to too deplorable eondiuoa of affairs, bnt it needed tba journalist to sound the locals and impel attention. The journalist was tnere the man of action, and it ia precisely because he can get closer to the people that he ia now more powerful than the Parliament- It will be seen that Mr. Stead bxkea advanced ground regarding tba Journalist's work; bo holds that be ia very much mora than a fact- man; that he ia a man of action quite aa much aa tha politician, that be ia a politician, aud tnat the measure of hia power is merely the measure of hia capacity aa a man. His responsibility, in other words, is sa hia might, Reoogniziag that government tends aver downward, be believe that the secret of ths power of the preea and the platform over tha House of Commons is tha secret by which tha Commons controlled tha Peers aud ths Peers ia their turn controlled tne king. They are nearer tha people. Great aa ia tba power ot journalism at present, be looks to sea it become a much greater power ia tha state, and thinks that toe future ot Eugliah journalists depends entirely npon tbemaoivea. wnne iranziy coniessing tnat tas genera out look at p recent is not very promising. XTXAirmtn KS DBTVXS BTBAIOST AHXAS on tba haw of his own duty as he aeea it, and if aver journalist gave sturdy battle in humanity's cause Mr. btead is that man. Last autumn, at Mertoa. a Utile suburb ot London, a house- painter shot a linen-draper for seducing his daughter. Too poor to empiov counsel or pro cure bail he waa locked up pending examina tion. Mr. Stead investigated the ease snd found that the painter had suffered all hia life from tha atigma of illegitimacy, and tnat the fresnmis-fortune thst bad eome through bis daughter's downfall nad almost crazed him, Mr. Stead bailed the man. opened uo tue case ia tha columna of tha Pall JfU Gatette, or ganized a defense fund, and developed the fact that tha seducer caa ruined auotner . young woman. Tnia waa not nsed to justify a resort to tha pistol, but Mr. Stead insisted that under existing circumstances the under man ahouid have a chance to exonerate himself for -hia momentary insanity. At tha trial ha waa ao-qoitted, TAXX AKOTBXm rXSTAXCa. It had been a matter of public comment for months that Mr. Cnanee Bradlaugh, X. P., in hia Parliamentary etruggla for religious tolera-Uoa, had gone $10,000 in debt, and being dependent on hia led ares sad pea for a liveluiool was seriously cramped tor funds, Mr. Stead came oat one day in a leader on "Tne Sunginees of the Skeptic," and, using Mr. Bradlaugh aa a text, pointed out tha: had tha latter labored aa hard for tha oauaa of the orthodox as be had for the cause of tue skeptio ha would not hava been left to struggle in tha dark valley of debt and want - It waa - asked if any one supposed for - a moment that if Mr. Bradlaugh had been a Jew, a Catholic, or a Noo-Conformiat. he would have been allowed by the mea wnosa battle ba waa fighting to be crushed by the cost of the campaign. It would have been a point of honor wUt any religiooa sect to have discharged the financial liability of its man-at-arma. Toe reluctance of tha unbeliever to display the ordinary liberality of tba orthodox ia very disheartening to taose who be beve the Christaaa virtue will survive the decay of tha Christian faith. It was once believed that after men and women bad fallen away from religion they would aull consecrate their means and their energies to the service of their failow-creaturea; that tha altruistic instinct fostered for oenturiea by the churches bad atruok firm enough root ia human nature to secure the bearing of frait in tne shape of unselfish endeavor and sacrifice of wealth and leisure in the service ot their fellow men. so rr irJOHx bi thought, and no doubt there are some" conspicuous examples of self-aaorifioine enthusiasm absolutely divorced from religions belief, but, taking the average man, when he ceases to be religious ha too often cease to subesribe. Tha funds which he no longer requires for tha maintenance of pi ritual guides aud ghostly counselors, ba apenda not upon their rationalized correlate vea ia humanitarian and political endeavor, but upon himself. It ia a supremely important subject For if Agnosticism visibly dries up the fertilizing flood of such an extent that wealthy agnostics agree to let their champions ba well-nigh crushed by debts incurred in fighting their battle, who will anawer . for it that the aame spirit may not be equally fatal to all tha finer moralities which have sprang up under the shadow of tha Croaa. Thus, Mr. Stead. The answer waa tha immediate opening of a Bradlaugh Fund, which did not close (ill tha debt was paid off. At present Mr. Staid is agitating tha case of tha German governess whose reoeul suit for sed notion and breach of promise against Horace Wat-pole waa thrown out of oourt on a technicality. Money ia flowing in for tha legal expenses: and though taa battle wul be a atabbora ona I predict that Mr. Stead will win it Victory haa a way of perching on his banner. This is ths work thst be does. Hia mind ia essentially military. He plana tba exposure of an abuse or the raising of a tuna as a geuetal plans a battle. Every detail ia wrong tit out, and the facta and arg amenta move np with the precision of an army corps. He wasto no effort ia intellectual titidation, but bewa etrafght to the root of tba matter iu hand. No motives of self or fear have ever turned tne fine edge of his oourags. As mea go, he is still a young man, with the best of life before him. Ilia nu- , ergy and horoio cnaulhsuness will yet lead him far. Shebudax Fo&d. ONE FACE FOB ROUND TEIP To tha G. A. R.
