Address The St. Louis Republic, St. Louis, Mo.  Message.  Waco, Tex., Feb. IO.—Judge George Clark was asked what he thought of tho execution of Smith and the message to which he replied ;  Tho people of Lamar county did right in burning Smith. Ile ought to have been burued. Tho crime was beyond tho contemplation of ordiuary laws and the necessity for swift and terrible punishment ap pealed directly to the hearts aud homes of every father and mother in Texas. Hts torture was iuex cii6ablo but greatly palliated by the hidious enormity of his offense. Society in the protection of its members can not always await the result of regular forms, but is iy>w and then confronted with dangers and horrors requiring extraordi nary remidies and action. This Baris business is an illustration of tho exception to the general rule. The people who did the burning were protectors of the homes of Texas and not in adorers and Gov crnor Hogg only makes himself ridiculous when he stigmatizes them as murderers. His rocom mendatione, most of them are equal iy ridiculous. II© betrays his ignor an ce of the plainest safe guard of civil liberty by recommending laws under which a citizen may be drag god from his home and persecuted before a strange tribual at the cap itai or elsewhere forgetting that our most grievous complaints  against Great Britain necessity of the South Carolina conference  ing separation, were tor transport ing us beyond the seas to be tried for pretended offenses and for abolishing the free system of Eng li*»h laws in a neighboring province, establishing therein an ar bitrarygovernment and enlarging its boundaries so as to render it at once aa example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these colonies and for the taking away of our charters, abolishing our most valna hie laws and altering fundamental ly the forms of our government.  “That this has been done before in our own state does not excuse the crime against cur liberties. If a citizen can not be indicted in the county where the supposed offense has been committed it ought not to be indicted at all aud that there is some overpowering reasons against presentment. That tho governor did not know that a suit for damages already lies under our laws against the slayers is of course excusable, aa is also the repetition by him of Governor Davis’ idea, promulgated in 1870, to mulet the county in damages for the death of an individual at tho hands, of a mob. Burning the fiendish rapist and murderer of a sweet and innocent child]ought not to provoke us to the destruction of our land maiks of government; for my part, I hope the burning will be kept up until the rapine stops, re gardle8s of the color of the rapist.”  Old newspapers for sale at this office,  Hie Wife Insane.  Columbia, S. C , Febrnary IO.—* There will be a sensation in Moth odi6t circles over the publication of a card by the Rev. J. P. Atta way in the State tomorrow. Sever a1 days ago tho Rev. A. M, Atta-way, a relative of the former, was, with his wife, committed to the in sane asylum. It was thought that their insanity was due to extreme religious excitement. This is in dignantly denied by the Rev, J. P, Atta way, who declares that the blasting of the minds of his broth cr and 6ister-in-law was due to the poverty aud privation endured by the pastor and his family while in the discharge of his duties, and for which 6tate of affairs he holds the church authorities responsible  In his Gard he says that the fain ily were compelled te subsist on cornbread and milk, and even this failed late iii the fall. The fact that Mr. Attaway was appointed to this field of labor, and other fields like it, tor the past years by the church officials, without tim right oven to complain, and the additional fact that a largo part of the mission appropriation previous ly made for the work wag taken off, fixes tho blame for this state of affairs not on him, but on tho church officials, and largely explains tho necessities of Mr. Atta way.  The said states of Mrs, Hatta way; ‘‘On the Sunday of the session  she was scarcely restrained from walking eight miles to take the train for Charleston, tho scat of the congress, to declare God’s an ger against the officials who placed her husband in such a condition. These and other things were thought then to be in jest, but are seen now to have been the thoughts of a mind driven mad.”  The Barber Pole,  St. Louis Globe Democrat,  The barber’s polo of the present day is a relic of the times when signs were significant in every respect of the trades carried on witbiu. The gilt ball at the top of the barber’s pole is symbolic of the basin which was formerly placed nuder the chin of the customer, for the purpose of lathering his face preparatory to shaving. The barbers were former ly also surgeons, and bled as well as shaved their customers. The pole is therefore symbolical of the staff which was placed in the hands of a man about to be hied in the arm, and which he grasped tightly for the purpose of increasing the flow of blood. The two ribbons, one of red aud the other of white, around the pole, symbolize the two bandages which were applied to the arm, one before and the other after bleeding. The sub-division of labor in modern times has taken from the barbers their function of blood letting, but tho polo remains, telling at a glance the whole history of the barber’s trade.
