Which I wish to re mark
And my language is plain
That lor ways that are dark'
And for trick3 that are Tain
Our Speaker is peculiar
Which the same I would rise to'oxplain,
We had a small game,
Aud Blaue took a hand
Resoustruction the sfctue
iie did not understand, 4
But ha smilsd as he talsed to us of it,
Atiuiile that wa childlike and bland.
Twas March the fifteento,
And quite solt were the skies,
Which u might be inferred
That Blaine wai likewiso ;
Yet he played it that day upon Grant
And mo in a way I despue,
Yes, the gama ho had stocked
Iu a way that 1 griero 4
And my feelings were shocked,
For I.coald not belieTe
That one bo child-like and simpls
Coald eome in that way to deceire.
Bat tha gams that he played
Was right up a tree, . ,
Aad the points that ho made
Were quite ftightfal tosoe
Till at 'aat he put Cox up; and Randtll,
Which tha game had been turnei o'er
to me. , ,

Which my name it is Blaino,
I don't want to call names,.
But I must to begin,
Say juit this of Bsn Butler!
That I am convinced he is rather
Well np in the sinfulest games.
And about that small gam :
I did not understand, ;
So I made it my aim, -
With the ?mile that was bland, .
Oa Butler, ashe doaltthe first hand.
Which is why I remark,
And ray language is plain,
That for ways that are dark,
Ana Tor tricksTnat are Tain,
Whicfohe same I an freo,l6 maintain
cnoRu's bt the de'uooLts;
la the scene that did enen9 ,
We did not take a hand :
And the air it was bine
With tht execration's of the. band
CoBposed of the Radical members,
Wmch va a game they did understand.
Which is why we remark,
And our language Is plaic,
iht for ways that are dark. ' .

of the Union in elections to overawe the peo

7, An honest . and economical admietran
tion of the Government for the good of the
people, and not in the interests of monopolists,
thieves and plunderers of the public treasury
and the national domain ;
.8. That we aro in favor of a revenue tariff
that raises money for the support of the Fede
ral Government, and are opposed to a protec
tive tariff which taxes the people for th bene
fit of monopolists ;
9. That we are opposed to the present sji-
tem of taxation- which is based upon an in
equality burdensome J;o3the tworking classes,
while the best interests of the country demand
that all classes of property should beau equally
the burdens of the Govenraoafc;
10. That the importation of Chinese coolies,
to be held in bondage by monopolizing capi
talists at low rates of wage3, cannot fail to
degrade the dignity of American labor by com
pttition, and introduce into our social system
ait eloment which will endanger tha peace and
wsli-being of "our country ;
11. Thatwe pledge ourselves to tlie vig
orous prosecution of reforms in our own State,
tho reduction of its expenditure to the lowest
practical limit, the elevation of the courts of
iustice above tho influence of any personal or
I partisan considerations, and the onactment of
V wholesome laws, which nubuc sentiment will
'sustain, and public officers ba required to en
force; 12. That wo are compelled by profound
convictionsof their injustice and impolicy, to
record our solomn protest against the leading
measures oftha national Administration, and

Tha San Diego Union publishes a private
letter to the editor, written by a promineiit
scntleman at San Francisco, from which we
copy the following not very complimentary of
the people of San Francisco, in their view of
the currency question :
"San Francisco is jealous of the growth of
San Diego, and therefore you need expoct no
sympathy from this quarter, llely upon your
ielves and such assistance as you can obtain
from Eastern capital. Eastern capital is the
only formidable rival of the un-American cap

line ; Greenbacks Eastern capitally

the basis of business transactions. Let San

''The trade vith China and Japan is loom
ing up, By 'tho last staamor over 13,000 pack
ages of tea were received and sent overland ;
-15 cars were required to carry it; 6,500 pack
ages Trent through to New York. Can anyone
'doubt that with your facilities San Diogo.will
not have a full share ef this great trade, when
the Texas Pacific Railroad is completed ?
"Let your motto then be : Direct trade with
the East currency Eastern capital. And let
a liberal, wise, and far-sighted policy be the
substratum ofyour rising city.'

Boys and Girls.
Boys and girls are not the same. They aro
born differont, and show it while they nreu
fanls. Cha baby-boy is restless andtpnealyin
Lifs mother's arms. He is never stiH oxaept
whem asleep, and even then tumbles Irom sia
to side ir; his crib with sudden fliijgs of arras
and legs. When he grows beyond baby-hood '
he plays differently. Without ever being told
of it he instinctively turns away from dolls;
lays them aside in indifference, and freely do
nates them to whatever little girl will hav
them. He demands balls and bats and drums;
'hcturnB dgwn chairs forhorses, lays hold on
all etrings in fho houseFoir lines, wants all
the little sticks made into whigs, mounts loon, "
ges and drives fourin hand; he asks for guns,"
and wants you to tell him stories of bears and
lions and tigers, and is amused beyond mea
sure at their leaping upon and eatiag up cows
at d oxan. The girl-baby is gentle, even fronv
the first, and looknqflietly out of the biuseyes,.
ior laughingly out of tho dark ones. She takes
uaturaUyqjhsr dolls, and never wearfes ipf
dressing thamaniHarranging the baby house;
she ia gentle in her plays, and would ba fright
ened with w' ut would fill her brother with &
paroxysm of delight; she loves fairy tale,
and will not laugh and ask some absurd quea
tion about the babes in the wood, but rather
cries over their sorrows.
Tho sister will smooth pussy and hold herf
lovingly in her lap, while tho brother wants U
Eec if tho cat can jump, and when she tries
to get out of his undesirable company will
detain hor by the lug or tail, . And .these tumo
divergencies of disposition and character per
petuate themselves as the boy or girl gws
older. 1'hera are soma exceptions, it is true
some boys hav9 all the taste and gentleness cf
a feminine nature, and some girls hava much
that is masculine. I do not regret seeing it
is oach. Tho gentle boy will not make any
the les3 noble man because there was so much
that was girl-like in his childhood,- uor will
tho girl that was, in her rudeness, often calld
a boy, be any the less, but perhaps' all the
more a trueand lovely woman. Br, Aikman'
Life at Home,
"Tho only way," says tho JJerald "in which tagL
so-eallfd disclosures of Mr Sumner hare inflnencedr
us in the least is by showing that eren New Eng
land has become disgusted with the railtarj stylo
of govermcnttho only style it must be admitted'
of which General Grant hag iho faintost ida.
As it has ever been the aim of the Herald to
faithfully repraiont tho enlightens! scntimtnt of
the nation, so it is at tho presant crisis ; and ac
cordingly, tho Prosidont must excuse as if ho e
no loneer receive oar support except he deralops
some traits of statesmanship of which ttq havojaot
yet ' seen ven tho somblance. ' Wo agrca with
Mr. Sumner that tho Preiident has far transcended
hi3 power by sending tb flcets'of the United Siatta
to San Domingo for tho purpos of coercing tha
peoplo of that island to annexation, so that bo
might obtain glory .or secura his re-slactioa'by
that means ; nor can we deny that ia doing so he
is guilty to a certain-extent of usurpation. Nay,
wo will go farther, and acknowledge that neither
king nor emperorwould do hunielf, hh- govern
ment or the nation over which he rules any credit
by pursuing sach a eouri8 for tho purpose of se
curing now subjects or new territories as that ef
which tho Prosidn t f this republic may now ha
regarded as con vifftefd before the wrM."
