WHO DOES HE REPRESENT.
'The New York World says: By
the way, who does Mr. -Blaise rep
reasat in this present crusade? Not
te peopls of Maine, for at the last
eecti esaeves voters out of every
twenty voted againet him and his
party. Not the Republican party,
for at its last convention his candi

might be chosea. Not the North,

HAPPY NEW YEAR.
Next Tuesda night the latest
hours of the wasting year will "drag
their weary length along," and
"Old '78," with his joys apd his
sorrows, must pass from the calen
dar of the present. and assume his
appointed position, throughout time
and eternity, in the uehangable
record of the past. Some there are
who will preserve his memory fresh
and green, to whom the passing
year will ever be sssociated with
thoughts of joy and happiness. But
many who welcomed his coming1
with hearts light with fair promises,
full of anticipated happiness and
prosperity, and fondest hopes for
the future, are now resting in un
timely graves, or live but to mourn
for homes made desolate-whose
hopes have been blasted, and who
have received but sorrow and
lamentation as their portion.
So far as Covingtou is ooneerned,
we have been fortunate. There has
not, perbhaps, been as much busi
aess transacted, nor as large crops
made in our parih as in some for
mer years; but the eoellent health
which has prevailed with us
throughout the year, while other
portions of our fair State and the
Sunny South have experienced the
ravages of a most disastrous and
death-dealing pestilence, should
more than compensate for the slight
reduction in trafe and trle. It
is naturally true, that some homes
in our midst have been visited by
the fell destroyer; but we have been
free from the ravages of contiagious
diseases of any kind. While feel
ing thankful that the Old Year has
leftha so little to regret, in com
parison with other sections. we
hope that with the bright New Year
may come health, happiness and
nereasemd prosperity to all
But the future is before us, and
New Year's Day, that universal day
of virtuous resolutions and intended
reforms, is near at hand. In the
words of Sargent, we bid adieu to
the Old Year, with its reeord of
disease and death, sad gladly wel
come the New:
