pritig mud, from ono end of theio the other, and to think thai

is the one matter of lflfe and death to thupeople.

The peaches had come and gone, thoughwhen one day, about a month belbroThanksgiving, an old fellow came onboard with his family, who had ai'or two down to St. George's. I saw at aglanee that he was none of my usualdeal head squid. A thin, wiry old man,whit .-head. (1, but as active as a boy ofsixteen, and with the true Delawknack offinding friends and showing him-self fri 'iidly. He was a reporter on somePhiladelphia penny-paper, and had hisnote-book ou1 evei y-minute, pumping meabout tho Wilmington whipping-post,Sloan's fislibreeding experiment, andabout tha condition of the fre=d negroes.

'Makes items, makes itnms ! " he said.'Pushes the paper wonderfully into lo-:al circulation."

lie had been a doctor cr lawyer, I for-get which, in Xew York, aud was starvedout, he told me, so took up journal]He did not impress me as a man of abili-ty ; and besides, the poor old fellow wasworn out. I t was high time for him toio by and loaf with the others in. thoba-ggage-car.

" > . ••• work, ho said, " p a y slandsomely, compared to my own pro-

D. We get on quite comfortably onmy salary! quite comfortably."

I noticed however, that both ho andhis women folks were thinly and shabbily

I. 1 did not x'ay much atteto the women, but there was a bey,the old man's grandson—a little chap ofbour, that I took an odd fancy to fromthe first. He hail an ugly face, but Ithink one of the most hb'n-st and lovable1 ever saw.

Tanner tnat was the old man's name—fie that he had brought his wife and

daughter down to keep Thanksgiving in:!;i; village, where they had lived yearsbefore.

!" We were ail younger and cheerfullorthen than now,'' he said, '• and I thought,may be, with tlio old place wouldback some of the old feeling. Th.other ways of keeping tho feasts thanwith stuffing the stomach you know."

I thought to myself it would bo as wellif the stomach had its share of rejoicing.Tanner, cheerful and cliirrupy as ho was,looked meager and hunger-bitten. Fourpeople could no! : on eight dol-lars a week, which I found was liis sala-ry. He hired a vacant house for ftmonth. There it is—that one beyond thehill. The family went to housekeepingiu some s >rt ol' way in it, and he use I totun down Friday evenings to stay withthem over Saturday, which is the news-

per men's Sunday, as you know. Wegrew to be very ti iendly. I fell into thehabit of watching with him for Dan,who always oame out on the poroh towait for him, his mother holding him bythe hand I used to wonder if thalittle widow ever let go her hold of thechild, day or night, and once 1 rememberthinking what she would do if the childshould die. One has those queer, idlefancies, you know, lint Dan's motheiwas one of those women who seemed tohave no life outside of one or two peoplethey love.

AVell! Thanksgivii lame, aiTanner was aboard going home, buthad no time to talk to him, as thewas crowded with people who hodup in Wilmington laying in supplithe holiday. Even the passenger*carawere heaped with baskets and bundles.Tanner had his little package, too—•something for Dan I saw hi]into it with 1:is eyes twiltwice. 1 remember b .1 he was

His friend said to him rjrescntly," You're not well Colonel'( " " Never wasbetter. But the truth is, Venn, this coun-try is all familiar to me, anything whichrecalls old times makes me nervous and

Now tho rules of the road were•hod enough, but that was a tiling I neverillowed. However, I had taken a euri-riis interest in thi) nian, and I likedis courteous manner, so I nodded and

ivent before him into the baggage car,and over the tender to see himicross. To my surprise, Joe Fenton, ourengineer, met him as an old acquaintJoe had ) . regimentduring the war. i >k hands

Joe. l ie was a different man from tho.no I had. seen in the car. I wail

" You used to come down to those partsfishing often, I remember, Colonel! "

"Vur good lady now, sir?

And the child ': Se was as port a young-

The gentleman replied but by a gos-ure with his hand.

" What, both ? " gasped Joo. " Both ? "The Colonel did not speak for a min-

ute, and then he said quietly : " JI/LJ wifewas with me in China. She Bailed with taeihild for home on the Petrel. I was to

follow six months later. The Petrel wentdown. There was no one saved."

Joo said nothing; but presently hoput out his hand nndsmoothid the oldman's sleeve. It was just such a thing asa woman would do.

The Colonel added hastily, as if afraidhe would betray any emotion. " I'm onmy way West now, in search of rny fath-er, who has left Xew England. Peopleare easily lost sight of in America ."

" That's a fact, sir," said Joe, and tb.cnhe and I began to talk about the e.glad to get back to her. We had noright to meddle with a grief like that.

I went back to tho car again, until wecame to that hill ahalf-mile beyond Tan-ner's hotise, when I stepped back to theengine. I had an u iling some-how about leaving the man there. Wehad lost time, and were going at full

I t was too late. Tho engine did notslacken, and the child was hurryingtoward it. Then I saw its mother abovethe bank, running down the iieid. Shehad missed Dan, aud would be in sightbefore

I remember Joe's lips were white. Yetho sat as cool as could be, " I twoideath, I reckon, but—if a man couid onlyswing himself down from the cow-er "

I pushed forward, but the Colonel heldme back.

" I've nothing to lose," and as swift asa cat he passed round the ledgethrew himself headlong down on tntrack in front.

Hunting Walrus in the Arctic.A correspondent writes to tho Now

North Pacific whaling fleet have boontaking walrus in the months of Ju!August, as tho whales iu those months gointo the ice an I around Point Barrow,out of the reach of iall the years.from ISi'J to lfclGT whaihad let the walrus alone or had takenvery few. In 1 hip's" oomied taking walrus, and did quite well, se-curing from 200 to 000 walrus and daing half as many more. In 1number of ships were engaged in thebusiness, but in 1870 the whole ileet (withtwo or three exceptions) ' went in ' andtook all they could. Probably not lessthan 50,000 walrus, with thoir young,were killed and destroyed. The pasty a r three-fourths of the ileet were en-

aged iu tho business, but the walruswero shy, and had gone far into the ice,and they did not do so well. Shipmasters

send their boats twenty to twenty-live miles to find them.

"Tho Arctic walrus aro nearly allfemales, who go into the Arctic iu thesummer months to bring forth and nursetheir young, which the mothers are veryfond of and attached to. They will never

In conclusion, Dr. Smith expressed the' that farmers should have more so-

dal intercourse with each other. I tI immensely redound to their ad-

vmfige to visit fanning districts at adistance, for the purpose of seeing howother peoj ad loam by observa-tion their procei I modes. No bot-h r investments could bo made than toimprove ono's self by studying thosemeans which others liavo pursued for thoattainment of comfort, intelligence, andindependence. Although Dr. Franklinasserted thai

litary titles or wealth without ster-ling integrity. A good farmer is gener-ally a good man, and when his labors onearth ai'o finished, like tho low descend-ing snn, '•seems larger at his goindown."

Michigan Tourists Abroad.The party under ohvge of Mrs. Iritono,

of Kalamazoo, which has been making a" grand tour," seoms to attract nuicli at-tention and admiration froiu foreignersand travelers. The party, U will be re-membered, i» composed of 14 young la-dios, five of whom are from Detroit an<lMichigan, the others from New Yorkand Philadelphia. The New York Jkr-i.M, in a letter dated •* Alexnndrin, haatho following concerning Mis6 Columbia'sOdyssey, as it terms the party.

"*A novelty among American travelersabroad will induce tho derision of thereader, because the American is himself anovelty to foreigners,, notwithstandinghe h is beon on exhibition for nearly acentury. But what shall be said of aparty of H young ladies, traveling ovexEurope, Asia and Africa, matronized bya lady instructor, in order that they maylearn from the great book of human, life-'iBeing ill Milan some weeks ago I had' anopportunity to observe an itinerant sem-inary, composed of inoro than a dozen ofthe fairest of our American girls, in chargeof Mrs. Stone. The young ladies variedin age from 14 to 21, and represented ev-ery quarter of tho Union, typifying allshades of innocent beauty. Their namesare as follows: Miss Xnney X. Sanborn,Miss Krina M. Fuller, Miss Emin;t Ethe-ridgo, Miss Caroline C. Bexteoh, Miss Liz-zie Bell Fuller, Miss liancy A. Sanborn,Miss Gertrude Thomas, Miss Flora BellaHuyzan, Miss Kate E. Mitchell, Miss Le-na M. Gould, Miss Clara A. Avery, MissKatie C. Baxter, Miss Mary T. Mc-Naughtou, Miss LucindaH. Stone.

" This party left New York nearly ayear ago, under the supervision of Mrs.tstone ; and for male protection they haveMr. H. G. Gilbert and a courier, who at-tend to all the details of traveling. Theyfirst made a tour through Ireland, wherethey were greeted with the generous hos-pitality which only an Irishman can of-fer, and then passing through Sootlandvisited England, France, Germany,Switzerland and Italy. Of course suchan aggregation of young and attractivegirls, blushing with health and vitality,attracts the curious gaze of the astonish-ed European, who can little understandwhy a young lady should have anythingboyond a shallow property in music anddomestic accomplishments. Still, ittouches a new system for educating theAmerican young lady, and which, fromtho results already achieved, is worthy ofthe highest commendation. It is simplytaking the nndeveloped girl from tlieclose and deleterious airs of the school-room and acclimatizing her to the healthyair of Ireland or the hot, feverish weatherof Africa..

" With, her history and guide-book ather olbow, she visits the very scenes de-scribed in Roman history ; sue climbs theAlps; wanders in solitudes which herfavorite poets have immortalized, and byturns becomes gay at tho carousals otgreat capitals, and serious and thought-ful in tho stately palaces and imposing ]cathedrals. The most famous ruins, the Igrandest living works of art and greatnatural wonders movo before her youngappreciative eye; she beholds and admires.bue is a true traveler, because s'n•• insnot come abroad when her t.isto lias be-come neglected by age, or her apprecia-tion ckillud by domestic ties. iShu movesin the poetry of domestic travel, andwithout that girlish instinct her ideasmust very much resemble those of MurkTwain. I have rarely, I might suy nev-er, seen a collection of such fresh looking

' girls as compose this party. They all en-joy their long excursion, and do not fa-tigue by travel. Now it is Venice for a,week, then Venice and Milan, lundinurksfamous in literature, churches and scen-ery that are in the knowledge ouly ofthose of special culture are visited, andthe good Madame takes care that the la-dies do not leave without ample instruc-tion. Thus it is that they learn what cannever be forgotten, impressions whichwill serve them to become accomplishedwomen in the drawing room. Why cannot the system become popular? It has

~ot a very expensive system of instruc-tion.

" The young ladies have been over-whelmed with pleasant adventures. Up-on arriving in Egypt they met the Em-peror of Brazil, and expressing to hisMajesty their desire to have his auto-graph, the trans-Atlantic sovereign im-aiediately sent for the entire party, andspoke a few words to each, at the sametime presenting his photograph, duly en-dorsed. By the same fatality, whon theyoung ladies visited the pyramids, a pho-tographer was employed in taking a neg-ative of Don Pedro, with tho mammothmausoleums in the background. Theseminary was consequently takuii at thesame time, and the Emperor declaredthat he could wish nothing to remainimmortal except a picture which hadfixed him in the company of such acharming vdc—not even the pyramidsthemselves. Whereupon the acquaintancewas renewed, and each young lady wasdeclared a national princess. A weekago, the party, conducted by a dragomansailed from the port for Bcyrout, whence,they will go overland to visit tho Savior'stomb. While at Cairo they received dis-tinguished courtesies from Consul-Gene-ral Butler. At this time one might thinkit dangerous to move recklessly aroundthe Levant, when cholera is spreadingand quarantines are established in nearlyevery harbor,yet the young ladies go ev-erywhere, and really there is no danger.

If the .sanitary condition of Constanti-nople permits they will visit the capitalof the Turkish empire ; going thence tothe Danube will completo their view ofEurope. It is safe to say that no partythat has been abroad has made a betterimpression than this- fa mily of prettyAmerican nii.-ses."

Motley aii I Sclienck.One of thes J is a typo of character repul-

sive to Gonjr.il Grant, while tho otherenlists his a frictions and sympathies.

One is a- gjntlemau of education andpuro moral tone, against whom neitherenvy nor nuilice has over ventured toooin disho I .ring pecuniary insinuation*;the other is a rough-and-ready Rop&bli-can politician whose Career has not beennice and whoso money record is fur fromunstained.

One had for his friend ill the SenateMr. Stunner, a statesman—though with afaulty pcl*tioal record in the Dense of theConstitution, but one which harmonizedat every point with the tenets of his par-ty creed—whoso pecuniary chastity inpublic matters was known and admittedby all. The other has for a champion inthe same body Mr. Stewart, whose sharpand intelligent cjv it is equally wellknown never wanders far from his trousers pockets. Argument um ad crumeiuim istho form of logic he best comprehends.He is the chief promoter of the Emmamine, and chief organizer of th I schemeto float tho enterprise on tho Londonmarket with the name and in lorsem*ntof the American minister, and to w_ichscheme Mr. Schenck lent a greed ear.

One had for his Senate supporter astatesman who had bravely en ounteredand throttled executive corruption in theform of the Santo Domingo job, and ex-posed to public gaze a fuddled chief mag-istrate porsistently calling the Committeeof Foreign Affairs the Judiciary Commit-tee, whereby he incurred the unappeas-able wrath of the White Hou 18, whichexpelled him from tho chairmanship ofthe former. The other has for a hench-man in the Senate a member of a fr.-slOyraisod committee which is relied up >n towhitewash executive tilth so as to makeclean the outside of the dish and platterwhich " within is full of extortion audexcess."

The friend of ono is a student unprac-tised in the corrupt and corrup'.ing cur-rents of Washington, while the vindica-tor of the other knows every rock andheadland of that dangerous navi Ration.

As a consequence Motley, as tit for hisoffice when removed as when appointed,was ejected therefrom with sucTindecenthaste that the ocean cable was called inaid to secure his confessed humiliation.Why such unscem'y haste no man has yetbeen able to see, who rememb tn thatwh ite\er injury Mr. Motley did hid beenremedied, and its recurrence preventedby taking away all possibilities of againmarring the Alabama negotiation, unlessthe object was to deal Mr. Sumner a foulblow under the belt.

But Schenck, whoso act involves notonly personal but public dishonor, is per-mitted to go uncensured. Nor thata'one. The administration publicly pro-claims no diminution of it.1 esteem andcordial regard for him.

" Look here upon this picture, rind on this !"Sumner denounces corruption; Stew-

art sustains it. The administrationstrikes down the former with Uotiey, andupholds the latter with Suhenck.

The Confederate Cotton ROIHI* Claims.The London Telegraph says editorially:We feel no surprise at the announce-

ment from Washington that the Britishand American Commission has declinedto admit the liability of the United Statesfor the debts contracted by the Confed-erate States. This decision, of course,shuts out the claims advanced by tho un-fortunate holders of Confederate cottonbonds, who have so long agitated forsomething like a recognition of the loan.Nothing else was to be expected. I t does,not at all matter whether the bondhold-ers' committee were right in the suspi-cions which they expressed to Lord Gran-ville, that the rejection of their demandswas a prearranged conclusion. The sira-plo truth had bettor bo frankiy admittedat once. It was absurd to suppose thaitho Americans would ever admit such aclaim. Wo have only to put ourselvesin their pontion, and to suppose an anal-gous case. If a Fenian insurrection oc-curred in Ireland and managed to main-tain itself largely through p. omriarr aidcontributed by American sympathizers,and if on the suppression of the revoltthose citizens of the United States whohad lent to the ringleaders, asked us toreimburse the amount, we should receivetho application in a way that mero con-tempt would hardly exgreM; We sin midno doubt decline to discuss the matter.

The Ohio Liquor Law.Tho Chicago Journal says :.Tho " Ohio I3.WV* which has passed one

branch of the Illinois Legislature andwill probably beocme the Illinois law,is a very different matter from tho " Mainelaw." The latter was an absurd attemptto abolish drunkenness by tin: impossibleprocess of legislative omnipotence, and ofcourse has everywhere proven a failure.The more sensible "Ohio law" proposessimply to make liquor dispensers respon-sible in pecuniary damages for the wrongami injury of which they may be tho im-T-diatp cause. Instead of a fautttioal andimpractical de^ioe to abolish the evil.it isa very practicable proposition to holdthe evil-doer pecuniarily responsible forti'e evil done. Its-object is not to pre-vent injustice, which is an achievementnot in tho power of human legislation ;but to provido the way of doing justice 1 ypunishing Injustice, which is the mostmat human laws can. over hope to achieve.

Civil Service Reform.The depth and breadth of tiie proposed

civil service reform was illustrated in theprofessions of the President's special mes-sage to Congress. To-day they are ful-filled in the slight extent they cover byorders issued by him to the old commis-sion requesting them to reassemble heronext week as an advisory board to super-vise and regulate all examinations for ap-pointments to the civil servico. In ac-cordance with, tho suggestion of the com-mission the President will also appoint asa legular examining board, throe personsfrom each of the departments of the gov-ernment, who will personally conduct allexaminations of applicants, being gov-erned in their actions by such regulationsas may be from time to time establishedby the advisory board. I t is probablethat the duties of tho latter board will notuc t,u^n as to require a continuous session,but that it will only be necessary for themto meet at stated seasons. Tho proposedreform, it will thus be seen, is entirelyprospective, and does not apply, except infilling vacancies and in promotion, to thepresent condition of the service. For in-stance, it cannot work a single reform inthe Now York or New Orleans Custom-houses.

Secretary Boutwell issued a circular let-ter to-day to collectors of customs, requir-ing them to select a board to examine allapplicants for future appointments in ac-cordance with the rules provided by theCivil Service Commission ; but all suchexaminations in detail or result are to besubmitted for approval to tho Secretary.Other Cabinet officers will probably issuesimilar orders in a day or two. There isno telling, however, where all tho ex-ceptions to tho application of these ruleswill end. The whole detective force ofthe secret servico of the Treasury, it wasdecided to-day, need not come within therules.

One of the rules prepared by the CivilService Commission and adopted by thePresident requires that all postmastershereafter appointed, whose salaries mayamount to $200 per annum or over, shallbe subject to test of competitive examina-tion. A list has now been completed inthe Post Offioo Department showing thatthe total number of such offices is 5,109.When vacancies occur in the larger of-fices the rule of promotion is to be appliedif any subordinate therein is found to befitted after examination. In case of fail-ure to pass examination, or absence ofsubordinates desiring promotion, the |of-fice will be open for public competition.In addition to this class of offices thebooks of the department show that thereare about twenty-five thousand postmas-ters whose salaries do not amount to twohundred dollars per annum. These ap-pointments will continue to bo made up-on simple applications supported by tes-timonials of character satisfactory to thePostmaster-General. A large proportionof the places are being held merely forthe accommodation of the people. Aboutone Jialf of the total number of Ipostmas-ters receive a compensation not exceed-ing fifty dollars a year.— Washington cor-respondence JV. Y. World.

Dualin, the New Explosive.The new explosive, Dualin, is attract-

ing a good deal of attention lately, andseems to have as great, or greater, explo-sive power than nitro glycerine, withouttho dangerous properties of tho latter. I tis described as looking like a mixture ofsaw-dust and grease, and has a sicklyodor. A correspondent of the Philadel-phia Press recently witnessed some exper-iments with it at Alhmtown, Pa. In or-der to show that the du.iliu could not behandled carelessly without danger, theexperimenter threw a package of it withgreat violence upon tho ground at thocorrespondent's feet. The latter did notask a repetition of the test. A handful ofdualin was placed on a stove and set onfire with a match, when it frizzled awaylike damp gunpowder, showing a brightblue flame. Two pounds of it laid on thetop of a piece of limestone rock weigh-ing between ten and twelve hundredpounds, had two shovelfuls of earth pla-ced over it, and the charge was explodedby an electric wire. The report was ter-rific and the rock was pulverized. Therewere a few pieces left, but nono largerthan a man's hand. Thero was quite ahole in the ground, and pieces of stonebout tho size used for macadamizing

were forced deeply into tho soil. One:harge placed twenty-six feet down atthe bottom of a well ono hundred audthirty-seven feet deep, containing aboutthirty feet of water, was exploded withgreat effect.

THfi AIUJI S AM) 1879.. With this number the Alters eutorsup-

on both a new y >ar and a new volume.TWKNTY-FIVE YEAK8 has it made itsweekly visits to the homes of its subscri-bers, we trust not unwelcome or withoutinstruction. But we propose no reviewof this long and eventful career, ueitheisha'l we mark out any definite course OTmake any rash promises for tho future•Suffice it to say that, so far as our abilitywill permit and means are co.iiided to us,t will in the year now begun bo muleno less a velcomc visitant than hereto-fore, and, it is not too much to hop.', evenmoro welcome. Politically, it wi'l con-tinue Democratic: that is, it will advocato what we deem tho Democratic prin-ciples which underlie the very foundationsof our government. I t will not followmen blindly or endorse tho utterances oractions of anybody simply because theyclaim to sail under Democratic colors.Conventions may err and Democraticpoliticians >.nd office-holders may goastray, and if so, the name alone will not.command commendation for acts and soi-timents which we disapprove. Twen-ty-four years of labor in the ranks hasgiven us the right to think and sp- ak forourself, aud this privilege the Aliors willalways claim. Intelligently, thoughtfully, and not servilely Democratic, is ourmotto ; and because we believe tho lead-ing principles enuncia.ed by the party,individual rights, local rights, Staterights—and not centralization—are ne-cessary, both to the perpetuation of ourform of government and tho preservationof our liberties. Democracy means onhonest administration of the affairs ofgovernment and opposition to all cllegislation, though individual Democratsmay not always so vote or act. So muchfor our political future.

Locally, wo shall advocate what weconsider will advance the best interests,socially, morally and financially, of ourcity, county and State. This we shnll doas a citizen, and no politician need ask usto square our course by his differing viewsbecause he is also a Democrat; and nothurats of political ostracism will induceus to swear that black is white, vico vir-tue, or wrong right, or to withhold ourapproval of efforts to establish the reignof law and order. Saying this much, thereader will understand that subscribinfor the AHGL'S is not taking stock in its

editor or its editorial control.

As to terms, we can not see our way topublish a paper for less than $2 a year.To attempt it would be a greater drainupon our pocket than we can afford.will not buy in material, in stock,in labor.in household supplies, what $1.50bought beforo war prices and a deprecia-ted currency were masters of the financialsituation. As soon as we can see our wayto a reduction it shall bo made, and untilwe can we ask no man or woman to takeour paper who can not find in it duringthe year the fall equivalent for the $2 ask-ed for it.

With these- few plain words wo go for-ward, hoping for a large increase of oursubscription list, an increase of jo!patronage, and a prompt payment of all ar-rearages.

IN tho Senate, just preceding tho ad-journment for the holidays, Mr. SUMNERthough never reputed " a funny man,'perpetrated a very serious joke ; that isheintroduce&(preceded by several lengthypreambles, with '• a stump speech in thobelly of each") the following articleamendatory to the Constitution:

SEC. 1. No person who has held onctthe office of President of the UnitecStates shall be thereafter eligible to thatoffice.

SEC. 2. This amendment shall not takeefiect till after the -1th of March, 1873.

The second section is designed, o:course, to sugar-coat the first and get theGRANT members to swallow it. But SUM-NER miscalculated. To send such^anamendment to tho people would effectual-ly forestall the action of tho RepublicanNational Convention, and, besides, thoGRAXT men have an eyo on the campaignof LS76. Several Presidents have beenelected to a second term, and is tho " sec-ond Washington " to be put off with themeat of ordinary mortals ? Not a bit oiit—or elso his venerable siro was mista-ken when he wrote " Ulysses never let goa good thing."

THE Internationals and Couimunistaand Socialists and Labor Reformers ant]Property Equalizers, by whatevor nameknown, are commended to the followingsentence from the opening chapter of thonew serial by Dr. O. W. HOLMES, "ThePoet at the Breakfast Table": "Youcan't keep a dead level long if you burneverything down flat to make it. Why,bless your soul, if all tho cities of theworld were reduced to ashes, you'd havea new set of millionaires in a couple ofyears or so, out of the trade in potash."that is the key to the position. Ono manwill get rich whers another man willstarve, and it is utter nonsense to talkabout equalizing the thing by legislation—at least until the Legislature can equal-ize brain and muscle and nerve and en-ergy and common sense and judgment.

IT IS now authoritatively announced thattho reported terrible Ku-Klux outragesin Saline county, Missouri, " had no oth-er foundation than a street fight at Mar-shall, in which one white man was wouni-ed." But tho Radical journals, havingmade it do good service in scaring timidmen and keeping women and childrenawake o' nights, will take no pains tocontradict the original tale. A Ho can bemade to do the same service as a truth,and incampaign tracts for the next elec-tion the Saline outrage will figure instaring capitals.

THE New Hampshire Republican Con-vention, which met at Concord on the 3dinst., gravely resolved " that tho war and" the debt consequent thereon, is due to"the Democratic party." Couldn't ithave gone back just a little further, andreflected upou ADAM for yielding to EVEand eating the apple she gave him. But,then, as the same convention resolved infavor of " honesty, economy, retrench-ment, and reform," and endorsed GRANT'Sadministration and declared for his re-election, it evidently didn't care what itsaid and must have been only funning.Words are cheap, down in Now Hamp-shire as-elsewhere.

Tlie Profits of Martial Law.Wo have a curious document, a very

curious document, considering that forsix long years and over the war drum haceased to throb in this part of the greaworld's federation, said document beingan account current of tho expenses of alate scoundrel pioce of martial law inToxas. To explain, it must be remember-ed that in tho fate of one of the four Re-publican candidates for Congress fromthat State in the election held there Oc-tober 3—6 last, the high-tariff and Protec-tion interests of Pennsylvania and Mas-sachusetts wore much concerned. Thoindividual in question is a little carpet-bag creature from Hartford, Conn., amost unflinching friend of tho WhiteHouse and a sura vote for any tariff swin-dle The district in which this being ranwas tho Third Texas, and the vote there-in stood some four thousand majority forthe Democratic candidate. This majcri-ty hinging 011 two counties tho Republi-can Executive, Governor Davis, prompt-ly declared martial law therein on tho9th of October, three days after the elec-tion, ordered his standing army to takepossession thereof .and ordered a lovy oi$50,000 thereon to pay the expenses oithe foray. November tith-tho Legisla-ture adopted resolutions disapprovingthese pi>iiorm;uioC!S, "as being unnecessaryto the ends of public justice and uncallodfor," and soon thereafter tho Governor is-sued his proclamation revoking his dec-lation of martial law aud instructing hisblood-honnds to mako report of their col-lections of tax so far as proceededin. The report made in accordance herowith is the account current of scoundrel-ism to which in the beginning of this ar-ticle we refer. It appears that theExecutive henchmen before stopping intheir nefarious proceedings, collected thesum of $33,746.16, whereof some |22,000were distributed among certain major andbrigadier generals, colonels, and majorsin the State standing army kopt on fojtby tho Republican Governor of Texas, i;i' ime of profound p ace, in contempt of

the Pi deral" Constitution. The mannerof the collection of the tax we learn oth-erwise than frov.i the official report, in.me case, for instance, a pair of fine mules,Tor which the owner had just paid $300n go'.d, w<!S taken off, and tho name evc-ling, alter dark, put up at unction andcnooked down to some friend of the Stateidministration at $109 in greenbacks.

From the Bast Bajrimiw Courier, Dec. 29th.The Situation <flT tlioSatt Racket.

There is (juite a brisk movetuont in n:iltjust now, an unusual eironmetanoe forthis s;a,on of the year. The stock of salton the river, us now appears, is not aslarge as represented, ami this i» l»;iu^ iit-creasel by liberal purebaoea, there beingno lao'c of purchasers, aside from thu as-sociation, which, under cilCfltaStanoes, of-Fors a liberal advance. Several largeahipmoata by rail of salt have been iniirlcwithin the past ten days, and we hoar ofsovoral contracts of salt to ship duringtho waiter.

As has been stated, and is well known,S. L. Hurd & Co. are large buyers, andexpect to ship during the winter 30,1100barrels and upward of salt. Haskin,Martin &, Wheeler have made, we understau 1, a railroad contract for 6,000 or9,000 barrels of salt, and outside partiesare watohing the market closely. Underfree purchases salt is firm at $1 Co perbarrol at cars, aad will doubtless touch ahigher figure

We learn from n trustworthy sourcethat the Onondaga Company have notifi"'l the combination of their intention towithdraw from the arrangement enteredinto with Saginaw and Kanawha, abouta year ago, a circ*mstance probably in-duced by tho recent action of tho stock-holders'ineeting at Bay City. Ononda-ga is by no means satisfied with the ac-tion of tho Saginaw association, and ismaking arrangements to intrench Itself.It has already rooognized tiie importanceof Saginaw as a rival, and is beginning torealize that Saginaw i.-, the master. Bythe dissolution of our association Syra-cuse will be a great loser, and is nowmaking arrangements for fighting th iterritory in which that company has heldundisputed sway during tho past year.—Agents of that company thro iten to rushs.lt into Cl v land and Toledo at 91 50.a decline of 50 cents from oid prices. Tlieprospects of the coming year do not iookvery flattering now. Prices will remaingood until manufacturing commencesand navigation opens, when a doc.ino,under ordinary circ*mstance, may be expected, and from the following causes.The past year the water in the Ohio Riv-er has been low, thus checking the ship-ment of Ohio River salt, which the pre-vious year proved so unfortunate to boththe Saginaw and Onondnga companiesaud nearj . disastrous to the former. Itis hardly , sisonable to suppose that tiltsame eon.,, will Operate next year in fa-vor of the Sagiaaw markets. Now thaithe association has practically dissolvedOnondaga will commence cutting ra{£!in all the markets where it comes in con-tact with Saginaw, an i thus reduce theprice; and last, but not th; leist irnportant, it is possible, and even probablethat Congress, during its present sessionwill reduce the tariff on salt, to allow thiimportation of a vast quantity of (Janadian and Othef foreign salt. These arcamong the causes that will transpire toeffect the Saginaw salt market, and unless it ia properly manipulated, will runthe price of salt down lower than it hasever been before.

Saginaw has learned much from exper-ience, and although the union of forces isbroken, it will enter tho fit-Id as th<strongest competitor, conscious of itsstrength. If tho market is favorahlSaginaw will turn out nearly a millioibarrels of salt, a quarter of which will bemanufactured by six or seven firms, theboast of whom has been that they canmanufacture salt ready for shipm.mt at70 cents a barrel. If this is the case, thejcan deliver at Toledo and Cleveland a£1, Lake Ontario ports at $1 2 J , and a'New York City ut $1 75. From this iwill be seen that Saginaw is no mean foeto contend with. If, as tho OnondagjCompany assert in their sworn statementto Congress, each barrel of salt made aSyracuse costs $1 ,'M and upward, Sagt-naw's chances in a square fight, if itcomesto a h'ght, are fair, to say the least.

The Ring of Thieves.The cartage and storage business of the

New York Custom House is under thomanagement of one Leet, who was anaid-de-camp to Grant during the war.—The management of the business is suchthat tho company of which Lect is thohead makes about 1100,000 per annumout of it. One of Leet's partners in thisimmense swindle is General Horace Por-ter, private military secretary to GeneralGrant. Whether tho President himselfhas any direct or contingent interest inthe swindle, is not known ; but from thenranher in which his friends opposed in-vestigation, it is not improbable thatPorter is only the ostensible partner,while Grant is the real party at interest.These facts have recently come to lightin such a shape as to warrant a most thor-ough investigation. According to theHerald and the Bun, one cf the partiesconnected with this cartage contract hasbeen living with a, woman for the lastthreo years who was supposed to bo hiswife, but who turns out to be no wife atall, but only a tangible development ofRadical moral ideas. Tho man made uphis mind to marry another woman, towhich the imaginary wife objected, buttho objection was overruled, and she wasabandoned. As

" Earth hnth noeurse like love to Imtrinl tumul,Or hell a fury like a wonvin loomed,"

She immediately resolved to tako hervengeance upon tho faithless contractorby placing a bundle of papers containingall the ovidenco of tho rascalities andprofits of the storage and cartage busi-ness, as well as tho names of tho partners,in hands where they wo\ild be used forexposing the wholo scheme. Tho wholfacts are said to bo within easy reach.-—Free Press.

GuUure of Raspberries.Tn ttfc volumo of Reports of the De-

part mint of Agrioulturc, William Stiun-dera the very ftble Superintendent of thegardens and grounds of tlmt department,refers in his report to soveru.1 subjects,and among other* to the culture of Rasp-berries. He writes :

" Many of the Apparent discrepanciesin the results of raspberrry oulture 1the conflicting opinions upon the meritsof varrieties, arises from a want of thor-ough (liseriiuiiuttion of the species Erom•which thi'v have been obtained, and thospeciiil treatment that they respectivelyrequire.

" Taking the Philadelphia ae a type ofour native speci's, we luvv :i plant thatbus proved healthy and produptive, al-most without exception, wherever it hasbeen plant bereforeit lias becomeBomewhat popular, although, when rom-pared with varieties of the foreign spoeios,tho fruit is inferior in size, quality, andappearance, aifordin^ another instancewhere vigor of growth and productive-ness give ;i superlative value, even whenthe quality of fruit is decidedly inferior,as exemplified by the Albany seedlingamong strawberries and the Concordamong native grapes,

"Taking the Bed Antwerp as an exam-ple of the foreign varieties of the rasp-berry, «v tin.I •: vasi dsflferoriCO in theopinion of cultivators with regard to itssuccess. In some localities it is highlyextolled, while in many others it is asdecidedly condemned. Thai there ar«good reasons foi ppbsite opinionsthere can be no doubt, and observationsprove that failures are caused by thegroat heat and drvnaas of our onraateduring summer, which arrests the growthof tho plants and prevents their propermaturity.

"The measure of success attending theculture of foreign varieties of tho rasp-berry depending so much upon the pro-per degree of moisture, it is evident thatin light sandy and gravelly soils failureswill bo the rule; when planted in moreretentive and clayey soils, growth will bemore continuous and a healthier vegeta-tion be secured.

" Keeping these facts in view, the spe-cial treatment required to meet +he vari-ous influences soils and localities' willreadily be suggested.

" With regard to localities, it wouldappear that in the Southorn States,whor* tho woather is dry and warm dur-ing tho latter poxtion of summer, thesevarieties will be unfitted to tho climate,and only productive under the constantattention to such culture as tends tomodify these antagonistic conditions tosuccess; and experience fully bears outthis conclusion. Again, in regard tosoils, where it is unavoidable to plant ondry soils, the whole of tho surface sur-soimding tho plants should reccivo aheavy mulching during summer. Wherethis is persistently practiced, remunera-tive crops may be produced even insouthern localities.

" On clay soils, provided they are pro-perly drained, surface stirring, so as tokeep a loose comminuted surfaco ; mulch-ing may be dispensed with, but even onthese soils it may prove of great advant-age in tho dryest season to spread a thincoating of leaves or strawy manure overthe roots of the plants. The special ob-ject to keep in view is that of constantlymaintaining the soil in a condition thatwill encourage growth during summer,and secure the unchecked maturity of thecanes for fruiting the following year.Covering the canes during winter, al-though a wise precaution, and profitablealways, will not in itself secure a crop offruit from unripened wood; hence thosewho depend altogether upon the cover-ing process, are frequently subjected todisappointments."

Mormon Wives and Children.You are struck by the great number of

children everywhere here. Some housesare absolutely overflowing with them;some tables are actually embowered in" olive branches." The different sets gotalong very well together generally, butthat is little wonder, after tho mirtfcle ofa*greement between the mothers. • Poly-gamy does not seem to spare women thecares of maternity. I know a Mormonhousehold in which two middle-agedwives count about two dozen children be-tween them. I took t wo little fair-hairedgirls for twins, and they were a sort ofpolygamic twins, born almost at the sometime in the same house, of different moth-ers. I t seems to me that the childrenhere do not look as happy and bright asin our towns; I fancy that the little girlsat least have something of the subduedlook of thoir mothers. But somo of themare pretty, and nearly all neatly andcomfortably dressed. I hear that theyhave very good schools, and are under gooddiscipline at home, answering tho roll-call at night, and duly honoring theirfather and mothers.

Many Mormon wives are sisters, and itis said they get along quite harmonious-ly. Tho ve-y nature of the women seemsto be changed here, and turned upsidedown and inside out. An intelligent firstwife told a Gentile neighbor that the on-ly wicked feeling she had about her hus-band taking another wife was that he didnot take her Bister, who wanted him, or,rather, a share in him. Sho would- haveliked to have the property kept in thefamily. I saw, tho other day, a pair ofyoung wives, sisters, walking hand inhand, dressed alike in evory particular,of tho same height and complexion, andof the same apparent age—indeed, look-ing so exactly alike, that it was almost amitigated case of bigamy. I t must seemqueer even to them, to say "our husband,"as they used to say " our piano " or ourpony.

The most unnatural marriages here,ary those of men to their wives' moth-ers. These are not unfrequent. It strikesme this is a seditious plot against im-memorial domestic authority, the mostancient court of feminine appeal—that isan attempt to do away with mothers-in-law. When young wives are taken, thothreo, or four, or iive, do not always be-como one flesh ; there is sometimes rebel-lion and even hostility on the part of theold wife. Occasionally, a husband ob-jects to having even a second wifo im-posed on him. I heard of one the otherday, who, though he finally submitted tothe command of tho imperial Brighamthat ho should take and provide for acertain poor woman—" a lorn, lorn cro-tur "—declared he couldn't bear her, andat once put her away on a ranch, fortymiles from tho town, pensioned and pas-turod her out.— Grace Greenwood.

One of tho most important means ofpreserving health, especially at this season,is to keep the fct.-t dry mid warm. Farm-ers and others who are exposed to wetand cold, would find the following com-position very valuable, as a protection.and a preservative for their boots. It isalso excellent as a dressing for harness.Neat's-foot oil, 1 1-2 pint; bees-wax, 4oz.; spirits of turpentine, 1 oz.; pino tar,1 oz. Melt and mix together, and stiruntil cold. Spread and rub this compo-sition over tho leather while it is damp ;leather will absorb oil or greaae betterwhen damp than when dry. For thesoles take-pine tar and rub it in beforo afire until tho soles will absorb no more.Three or four applications will be needed.The durability of tho soles will bo muchincreased.—JIutHh and Home.
