have no doubt b-en in large me.i.-ure responsible
for her decline, by breeding in heronce sturdy and
industrious sons effeminacy and inertia. Neverthe
less. th; present race of Spaniard possess many

with them. They are a generous, hospitable, mag

gard their present plight without a throb of sym
From the first proclamation, our judgment was
against the permanency of the republic, notwith
standing the fictitious uuanimity which announced
its birth. From day to day since, events have con
firmed our flrst-lormed opinion, made up though it
was against our earnest feelings in favor of the re
public. Hut it was impossible tor the intelligent
on-looker conversant with her politics and ac
quainted with the nature and characteristics and
diversified local interests of her people, to judge
otherwise than we did of the probabilities of re
publican success in Spain.
True republicanism is a growth of long duration
and is not to be attained at a leap, or by the gor
geous pronouncement of enthusiastic theorists, ac
cidentally uppermost in the public councils, at a
time of governmental crisis. 1 he republic in
Spain has failed because the people were not pre
pared for it. If they were really partial to that
form of government t won hi ere this have been
firmly established : but. except in certain large
towns, the popular sentiment was and is enor
mously in favor of the old monarchical system. In
the towns, too, the republicans are for the most
part composed of the worst elements of the com
munity, as they call themselves, the thsmuusados,
the shirtless, who are generally also a most shift
less class of people ; addicted to republicanism
not because thev understand what the term signl
Ges, but because it brings to their frenetic imagi
nations the vision of riot, plunder, free living, di
vision of wealth, distribution of capital, all play,
no work, and all such wild and licentious notions
of social change.
This is the reason the scum clamors lor a repub
lic, and the same false conception is what causes
the respectable and order-loving peasantry of the
rural districts to oppose any such radical change
and cling to monarchy, which has most promise to
them of security and peace in their industrial pur
suits. The higher classes favor monarchy for a
different reason, of course, for it enables them to
retain their privileges and patrimonies. Undoubt
edly there are some men among the Spanish repub
licans possessed ot sound and just ideas of such a
form of government, but they are. as we have seen.
in a powerless minority, incapable of doing any
effective work, overawed in their own assemblies
by the irreconcilable., the reds, the Internalionals
the furious fellows who want to wipe out the idea
of uod from the minds of a most thoroughly relig
ions people, men who would nprear some scarlet
woman, proclaim her doddess ol Keason.and com
mand the populace to do her honor. It is the pre
dominance of this wretched class of persons that
repels the friendship and sympathy ol nil ttue lov
ers of liberty from these misnamed republics of
t rance and Spain. It such fail, it is not because
the people are enamored of their chains, but be
cause the chains are preferable to the Hnbridled
license, wild disorder, and anarchy attendant upon
the establishment ot a red republic
It is not an easy task to forecast the immediate
future ol pain. Ihe republic ot Castelar and
Figueras seems inevitably doomed ; the republic
of tht International would most certainly invite
foreign interference and possible partition of the
country : the installation ot a 1 russian prince on
the vacati'd throne of Amadeus might result differ
ently in Iiismarck's decadence from what a similar
threat did in J;ismarck s prime ; the successor won
Carlos seems on the whole most probable and most
desirable, as it would be the likeliest event to sat
isfy the army, the people, and nobility, and secure
outside recognition and support. S. F. Kxnmhier,
The Biter Uittex. Karely docs public sym
pathy incline towards the Treasury when a sur
charge on succession duty is enforced, but a case
has ju6t occurred in which all will applaud the
Treasury's action. William May, a wealthy
larmer in isortb Cornwall, was recently sum
inoned by the Poor Law CJuardians to support bis
aged mother, an inmate of the workhouse. The
hardhearted fellow pleaded bis own. illegitimacy,
and putting bis widowed mother in the bos, made
her publicly conless that lie was born before she
married bis father. The Magistrates, on this
ground, were obliged to dismiss the summons.
During examination, while asked whether, when
he inherited bis uncle's property, be paid legacy
duty as his nephew, he refused to answer. Mr.
Morrison, M. 1'., reading the report of tle case,
put the Treasury on the scent, and they havesur
chareod May on the difl'erenee between the 3 tier
cent, he paid as nephew and the 10 per cent, due
as a stranger, with interest since 1S"G; the total
sum being sufficient to have purchased the mother
a comfortable annuity for life.
Great Old Fellows. Marshal McMahon, or,
as be is now by courtesy styled, Due dc Magenta,
in full, Marie- Kdmond-Patrick-Maurice de
McMahon, the present President of France, was
born in 1S03. lie is conseouentlv onlv sixtv-five
j y J
years old, quite a youth, compared with his
foreign Minister, the Due ue llroglie, who was
born in 17S5, and is therefore of the matured age
of eighty-eight. Thiers, the predecessor of
McMahon, was born in 1707, and is therefore the
junior of the Due de Uroglie, by at least eight
years, imtzot, who still Jives, a close observer of
rrencb anairs, and a counsellor of the ministry
under all the Conservative governments, is also
the junior of the Due dc Uroglie by two years.
Ihesc are wonderful examples ot longevity , and

Why Uailev Stays in Daxbvry. Mr. Uailey,
the Dan'iury News man, having been again solici
ted to go to New York to live, writes as follows
in reply: " 1 like this town, where I have lived
most of my life, and the town likes me. My
small paper is only a weekly; Lut I own it, and
am content with the little but satisfactory inde
pendence that 1 enjoy. 1 know 1 ve gotten a good
deal of reputation lately; it won't be any less if
I stay here ; and, if I go to New York, I am dread
fully afraid I should soon be an old story, and
dwindle down to an imperceptible point. Your
big city likes fresh oranges; but it very quickly
sucks them dry, and throws them away. I don't
want to be sucked dry right off; so 1 think I'll
remain where I am. Pvc seen from my country
home bow clever fellows turn out who go to New
York with grand expectations. They gave up
something, and in the end found nothing. I am
glad you want to have me come, and I'm gladder
that 1 don't want to come. Danbury, insignifi
cant village as it is, is good enough for me; and
as I don't want to steal anything, or get murdered,
or get up a reputation for gonius 1 respectfully
but tiunly decline to pitch my tent in Ciotham.""
An ingenious individual, with a turn for math
ematics, has found that there is one pig to every
one and four-tenths men in the United States.
There is nothing singular at all that every man
should have a pig, but when four-tenths of a
man buys a pig, the event becomes a matter of
deep interest to everybody who strives after a
higher civilization. The mind instantly pictures
this four-tenths of an individual getting home
with that pig, and bucking up against fences, and
splashing into the mud, and kicking at the
animal just enough to miss it and swing off bis
balance, and while we have a long array of pro
ceedings to show that no whole man ever drove a
pig in the right direction, we can well believe
that four-tenths of a man wrestling with that
animal would afford a st-ectable that would be
nourishing to the last decree. This, of eourse. is
TI.e .i".' iV' v'.y.'iritf says A late letter
fr jm the IL-ly Land informs us of the JUeovcry
sjf an interesting and important item of history
at Na?. louse, the ancient Syehera. At this place
rceide the remnant of the Simaritans. who for
J.ihmi years have bad no dealing with the Jews,
and in whose synagogue is to 1-e found the Sa
maritan copy of the Pentateuch. In this syna
gogue a mirfionary of the Knglish Missionary
Society bus discovered a record kept by the
prints of events that had oecum-d reaching hack
to hundreds of years before the time ..f Chri-t.
Arguing that the eommotion created by tin.' vii-It
of the Satior to Lechem would aroue the anger
of the priest and provoke him to make an appro
priate entry -n this aneient register, the mi-iou-ary,
Mr. Kl Karey. ascertained the name ..f the
priest about the time of Christ and examined the
record. lie was rewarded by dlsciering an
entry to this effect : In the ISth year .f my
priesthood, and the 4, '23 1st year f the world,
Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Mary, was crueiti-d
at Jerusalem." Mr. Kl Karey is engaged iti
making a thorough examination of the ancient
Jinks, the Hastings milkman, one morning
forgot to water bis milk. In the ball of a cus
tomer in bis round, the sad omission flashed upon
Jinks' wounded feelings. A large tub of clear
water stood on the lloor by Ins side, no eye was
upon blm, and thrice did Jinks' dilute bis milk
with a large measure filled from the tub, before
the maid brought up the jogs. Jinks served U r
and went on. While be was bellowing down the
next area, his first customer's footman leckoned
bim from the door. Jinks returned and was im
mediately ushered into the library. There sat
my lord who bad just tasted tin milk.
Jinks," said his lordship.
" My lord," replied Jinks.
"Jinks,' continued his lordship, ki I bhoulJ
feel particularly obliged if you would henceforth
bring me the milk and water separately, and
allow me the favor of mixing them myself."
" Well, my lord, it's useless to deny the thiug,
for I suppose your lordship watched me while"
" No," interrupted the nobleman ; " the fact is
that my children bathe at home, Jinks, and the
tub in the hall was full ot sea water, Jinks.
Mack Merryman, in one ol bis characteristic
letters thus gives his experience as to the reward
of honesty : I suppose that next to a first-class
insurance one honesty is the best policy in the
world, at least that maxim is the entire moral code
calculated to elevate an ambitious juvenile and
crown bim with the laurels of everlasting success.
Still, to be honest, I have frequently had my faith
in this very roughly shaken ; for instance, when
a boy I liked apples, and the cellar was full of
nice, plump, pink-laced, round, aldermamc ap
ples; naturally I frequently asked for some, so one
day when my aunt was going out 1 said : 4 Let
me go down cellar an' get some apples ? ' ' No
dear, replied aunty, 'and H you promise not ti
touch them I'll give you something so nice, and
surprise you so much.' Innocently I vowed eter
nal restraint of appetite and impatiently awaited
aunty's return. She patted me on the cheek and
told mc to put my bat on, saying: 'Mackey,
you did not touch those apples, did you ?' ' No
aunty, no, of course not, honesty's the best loliey,
you always taught mc. 'That's a good, yood
boy, so come along and I II let you take a walk to
see your grandpapa's grave ."" I am afraid the
apple cellar frequently suffered after that !
We take the following from an article upon
money and literature in the N. Y. Observer :
Nothing like the want of money for starting
brains ; nothing like the soreness of poverty for
causing the poet's muse to soarj nothing like the
coming of a creditor's shadow for drawins the
writer's talent out in full force. One might sup-
pise that Goldsmith flung bis intellectual jewels
among an admiring public because his mind was
surcharged with brilliant ideas and be felt im
pelled to burst the bonds of silence, but the
plain fact is be was 6hort of cash. Once, when
his landlady the evil genius of bis earlier years
made an unusually imperative demand for rent
be sent for Dr. Johnson, the man of the ponder
ous mind and sonorous style. Johnson found
bim buried in bed clothes and perplexity, occu
pied solely in emptying a bottle of wine. The
old doctor corked up the bottle, and then pro
ceeded to uncork and pass judgment upon a
certain manuscript of Goldsmith's, which the
author had kept lying by bim for some time. The
result was its publication, and " G'oldy " was
enabled to satisfy the landlady's demand and see
himself the most popular writer of the day. Such
was the birth of the " Vicar of Wakefield." The
best efforts of Goldsmith's genius were forced
into being by his pecuniary needs.
The same is true of Dr. JobnBon, who poured
out of bis bead to fill up bis pocket. After be
had received his pension be relaxed bis labors ;
there was no further inducement for the pensioner
to pen it.
When 11. was a boy, bis uncle presented bim
with a Swiss musical box, a small one, playing
two or three tunes, and which, when wound up
with a key, was set in motion by touching a
button on the side. II. was delighted with the
present, carried it about with bim wherever be
went, until be finally came to grief by placing it
in bis pocket and taking it to church with bim.
The sermon proved long and tedious to II. who
was extremely anxious to return home and listen
to the melody of bis wonderful little instrument.
Finally, in the midst of the sermon, an idea oc
curred to bim it was a brilliant one be thought
fie would just touch the button a trine, have the
instrument make a note or two, and he'd push it
back and stop, lie did so, but the confounded
thing would not stop its playing, notwithstanding
he nearly wrenched the button from the box in
frantic desire to stop it. All his efforts proved
unavailing the machine kept on playing to the.
great surprise of the congregation and the supremo
disgust of the officiating clergyman. All eyes
were turned upon poor II. who would have given
the world, including the musical box, could the
floor have opened and let bim through out of
sight. All tragedies have an ending, and it came
at la6t to II. who was collared by the sexton and
marched down through the long aisle ol the
church, the infernal box playing Yankee Doodle
in time to every step. II. says when he reached
the door he fainted ; but the very first thing he
did when be returned to consciousness, war? to
smash the confounded musical box.
Thc English Government proposes the adoption
of its signals for vessels in distress or wanting
pilots, by the shipping of all nations. It would
appear that uniform signals, especially for vessels
in distress, is desirable, so that such vessels would
be sure of assistance from the first sail that should
come in their vicinity: and it would doubtless be
important that a vessel's signal for a pilot should
nc understood at all ports without delay. Col
lector Allen of New Uedford, has received a cir
cular from ifecretary Doutwell, requesting bim to
get the opinions of experts, ship owners and
others on the Knglish code, which is as follows :
Signals to be made by ships wanting a Pilot.
In the daytime. To be hoisted at the fore, the
jack or other national color usually worn by mer
chant snips, having round it a white border one
fifth of the breadth of the flag.
1. A blue light every fifteen minutes; r
"2. A bright white light flashed or shown at
short frequent intervals, just above the bulwarks
lor about a minute at a time.
As regards Signals of Distress.
In the daytime. The following t-ignals num
bered 1,2, and 3, when used or displayed together,
or separately, 6hall be deemed to be signals of dis:-
tress m the daytime :
1. A gun tred at intervals ot about a minute.
2. The Commercial Code Eignal of distress in
dicated by N. C.
o. Ihe distant signal, consisting t a square
flag, having, cither above or below it, a ball ir
anything resembling a ball.
