Iva said that to him one soft,
ool September night as they sat
n the vivid moanlight, her fair
ace very sweet tosee upturned to
1is in2 such shy eagerness.
A thousand times betwveen that
ovly Se ptemnber night arnd the
rosty October wedding-day, Fred
told himself he would be so grood,
so kind to this delicato little~girl
who was giving hiim everything

Scores and scores of times he
told himself he did not regret what
he had done, not even when he0
recalled the cold, contemptuous
looks Bessie Campbell lost no op
portunity of bestowing upon him.
And then the wedding day came,
and the weddinrg hour, and Mr.
Cathertoni gave the bridal pair a
gorgeous hanquet, and the carriage
stood at the door to carry them
to the boat that was to take them
on their honeymoon trilp; and in
the few unoccupied minutes that
intervened, when Fred and his
bride stood talking, there came a
messenger from Mr. Catherton's
banking office with a sealed letter
from him, which, when he read it,
made him pale and whiten to the
lips. For one moment ; ther, like
the honest man he was, he rose to
the pitiful emergency.

day he never once regietted the

of love and happiness that has not
waned as the years go on.

Letter from Gov. Perry.
The Next Presidential Election
Views of a Venerable Statesman.
It seems, Mr. Editor, that we
have indeed fallen upon evil times,
when dame rumor is trumpeting
it abroad, uncontradicted, that
Gen. Grant is finding favor with
I Southern Democracy for a third
term as President of the American
Republic. That he should be the
chosen favorite of Southern carpet
baggers and scalawags will not
surprise any one. But that the
Southern men professing to be
democrats, should wish him suc
cess in 1880, is incomprehensible.
Have they forgotten the eightblack
years that this tyrant had his iron
heel on the neck of South Caroli
na ? Do they .:emember that Presi
dent Grant withdrew his army from
the defence of the frontiers of the
United States and scattered it all
over the South to sustain the
rogues and scoundrels whom he
had placed in office to rob and
plunder an impoverished and suf
fering people ? Have they forgot
ten that he filled our State House
with armed soldiers and fixed bay
onets to keep out the legally elect
ed representatives of the State '?
Like- Cromwell, he dispersed the
legislature of Louisiana, and drove
them out of their hall, at the point
of the bayonet. He sent his min
ions to Florida, Carolina and Lou
isiana, to sustain the Returning
Boards, in falsifying their returns,
and giving the eleetoral vote of
those States to Hayes. Knowing
that Tilden and Hendricks had
been elected and might be so de
clared, Grant concentrated a large
military force in Washington to
have Hayes and Wheeler inaugura
ted President and Vice President.
When first elected, PresidentGrant
received gifts of thirty, and fifty
thousand dollars from wealthy men
in New York and other States, and(
appointed these men members of
his cabinet. During the whole
term of his Presidency. he was sur
rounded by such corrupt scoun
drels as Belknap, Babcock, Shep
herd, and others, whom he protect
ed in their rascality, anid wvho are
still his associates. It is a well
known fact that Grant was convi'
ted by every member of Johnson's
Cabinet of palpable lying and
Now, if these ,"y.d democr'ats
are in favor of electing such a man
as U. S. Grant, a third time to the
Presidential chair in violation of
the example of Washington and all
the other American Presidents,
they are either fools, or knaves, or
unprincipled Swiss, ready to fight
under any banner that will pay,
and dishonor their State.
Who shall be the next Democrat
ic candidate for the Presidency
next fall, ought to depend on who
is supposed to be the most availa
ble candidate. whether Tilden, Hien
dricks, Bayard, Hancock, or any
other true and honorable Demo
crat. The Southern States should
iot be prominent in his nomina
tion, but leave the selection entire
l to Northern Democrats. No
candidate should be nominated who
is not able to carry New York and
Indiana. If Tilden and Hendricks
could carry these States, their nom
ination would be a proper and
handsome thing,as they were cheat
ed out of their election four years,
ago. But it would seem from the
last election in New York, that
Gov. Tilden cannot unite the Dem
oratie vote of that State. Gov.
Seymour, it is thought, could carr~y
tle Sta" of New York, but he will
not consett to be a candid~ate. Wil
iam Lowndes, of South Carolina,
said that "the Presidency ought
not to be sought for or refused."
This should be the doctrine of eve
ry patriotic statesman in the land.
The conduct of Tilden and Hen
dricks, in submitting to the inau
guration of Hayes and Wheeler,un
der the circumstances, was wise,
unselfish and patriotic. The Dem
ocrats in Congress agreed to leave
the whole matter to arbitration.
The arbitrators refused to hear the
testimony of the gross and well
known frauds perpetrated in Lou
isiana and Florida, and declared
Hayes and Wheeler elected, al
though they were beaten by n-ore
than three hundred thousand votes!
The Democratic party was bound
in honor to abide this unjust award.
Any attempt to inaugurate the can
didates really elected would have
been revolution and would have in
volved the whole Union in a bloody
South Carolina is now once more
under self-government, and so are
all the other Southern States ; and
God forbid that Grant and his army
and his office thieves should ever
again have it in their power to dis
turb these Democratic govern
inents. It is all nonsense to talk
about dissolving old parties and
forming new ones. Their princi
ples are inherent in our Federal
Union, and must always exist, no
matter by what name political par
ties may be called. The Democrats
are for a strict construction of the
Federal Constitution, and the Re
publicans for a latitudinarian con
struction of that great charter. The
Democrats are in favor of States
Rights, free frade and no monopo
lies, self-government and the equal
protection of all the people, an
economical and honest administra
tion of the Federal Government.
The Republican party under every
name they have assumed and dis
graced, from that of Federalists to
that of Republicans, have been op
posed to the rights of the States
and free trade. They have always
favored monopolies and legislated
for the benefit of wealthy capital
ists. They have always favored a
prodigal expenditure of public mo
ney and high salaries. In times
past they have attempted the. lib
erty of the press and the freedom
of speech. They have set the mil
itary over the civil authorities of
the country and disregarded per
sonal rights and personal liberty.
All the accessions of territory to
the Republic have been made by
the Democratic party and bitterly
opposed by the Republicans.

How the Fish are Cured and Shipped.
A recent letter from St. Johns,
N. F., to the Montreal Gazette
says: 'We are now busy shipping
our dried codfish for foreign mark
ets. It is curious to note the his
tory of a codfish from the moment
when, on the hook of the fisher
man, it is dragg~ed from its native
element till it disappears down
the human throat on the banks of
the Amazon, the Parana. the Ta
gs or the Po. After a few ex
piring wriggles-and it is a comn
frt to be informed by naturalists
that fish are almost insensible to
painr-the cod is flung from the
fisherman's boat upon the rough
'stage,' where it is r-eceived by
the -cut-throat,' who, with a sharp
knife lays open the flesh across
the throat and downi the belly,
and passes it to the 'header.' This
operator proceeds to ex tract thbe
liver, whieb is dropped into a ves
sel by his sidle, to to converted in
to cold lhver oil. He then extracts
the entrails and wrenches off the
head, and throws these into anoth
r recep)tacle, to be preserved for
the farmer, to mix with bog and
earth, thus forming a most fertil
izing cornpost for- his fields. The
tong(ues, however, are taken out,
and also the 'sounds,' and these,
fresh or pickled, are an excellent
article of food. The fish is then
pasecd to the 'splitter,' w ho by a
dexterous movement cuts out the
back-bone nearly to the tail, and
thus lays the fish enti rely open,
and cap)able of being laid flat on
its back. Thbis is the nicest part
o the operation. andI the 'spli tter-'
always c-ommauds higher wages
than the other operators. Thie
'salter' next takes the fish and
washes it well fromf all pareceS of
bood, salts it., and p)laces it in
piles to drain. After lying the
proer length of time it is washed
aid spread to dr-y on the 'flake,'
wh ich is formed of spruce boughs,
supoted by a frame-work, r-e.t
ing on up jright poles. Here the
cod are spread out individually to
bleach by exposure to the sun.and
air, and during this pirocess re
q juieconstan tat ten tion. A tnigt
or orn the approach of r-ain, they
are made up into little round
heap wih t.he skin outside. in
which state they look very much
like small haycocks. Wlcn1 the
'blo)om.' or w-hiti-;h app":ar"aice.
which for a time they assume,
coMM's oit on the driCd ti-h. thc
)roCS is inihed, and tlherN are
then qnite ready for storing. On
being conveyed to the premises of
the exporting merchant, they are
hrst Clle1d.' or assorted. into four
different kinds,kno'wn as'lercban
table,' . Medeira,' 'West India,' and
'Dun,' or broken fish. The first
is the best quality, the second a
grade lower, the third is intended
for the stomach of negroes, and
the fourth, which is i :capable of
keeping, is used. at home. The
cod sent to hot countries is packed
by screw power into small casks
called 'drums that. which goes
to the Mediterranean is usually
exported in bulk. We ship large t
quantities of dried ccdfsh to Bra.
zii, and there is hardly -",n inhab
ited corner of that vast empire .1
where the -Newfoundland cod is d
no to be found, being carried on c
t- backs of mules from the sea
coast into the mos: distant pro
vinces of the interior. The ne
groes of the West Indies we!come
it as a grateful addition to their f
vegetable det. To all parts of the ~
Mediterranean it finds its way
Italians, Greeks and Sicilians C
equally relishing the produce.of
our sea harvest. The Spaniards r
and Portuguese are our best cus
tomers, and all over the sunny
peninsula, the 'bacalo,' have been
a standing dish since the days of c
Cervantes. -who makes special
mention of our cod in Don Quixote
under tl'at name. In Great Bri- f
tain and the United States we
have thousands of customers. In
the warmer regions of the earth,
however, the people seem to have a
a special liking for the dried and
salted cod, and to them it is an
almost indispensable article of e
food. The rnore extensively Bra
zil, Italy and Spain are opened
up by railways .rid other means
of transit, the greater becomes the C
demand for cod, as the cost is
lessened. Roman Catholic coun
tries are our best customers, and
Newfoundlauders have no reason
to wish for the abolitioo of Lent 'e
or a reduction of the number ofI
fast days ap)pointed by the Roman t
Catholic Church. The advancing t
price of fresh meats of all kinds :
in various coun tries is also rapidly I
increasing the demand for cod, I
and has considerably enhanced its
value. Twelve or fourteen years
ago the average price of fish was
from twelve to fifteen shillings
p)er quintal. It is now exactly
double that price.'
THIE llRIouTli SIDE.--Loo k on the '.
bright side. it is the right side.
The times miry be hard, but it will
make them no0 easier to wear at
glooruy and sad coun aten:ance. It
is the sunshine. and not the cloud,
that gives beauty to the flower.
There is always before or around
us tha't which should cheer and
fil! the heart with warmthi and
gladness. The sky is blue ten
times where it is black once. You
have troubles, it may be. So have
others. .None are free from them
-and perhaps it is as well that
none should be. They give sinew
and tone to life-fortitude and
courage to man. That would be
a dull sea, and the sailor would
never acquire skill, where there is
nothing to disturb its surface. Itt
is the duty of every one to extract
all the happiness and enjoyment
he can fromn within an1d without!
him; anid, above all, he should
look on the bright side. What
though thing do look a little
dark ? The ilae w ill have a turn

broad day. [a t he long run the~
grea balnc rights i tself. What
apears il becomes wel-that
whieb ap)pears wrong, right.
T'here are people with whom

Only frotm day to day
The life of a wi-e man runs;
What mnatter ii easons far away
Have g.om or have doubie suns?
To climb the unreal path,
W'e 'oae the roadway here,
We swim the rivers of wrath,
An,! tunnel the hills of fear.
Our feet ~n the torrent's brink,
Our eyes on the cloud afar,
We fear the thilg we think,
Ins:ead of things that are.
Like a tide our work should rise,
Each later wave the best;
To-morrow forever flies,
To-day is the special test.
Like a sawyer's work is life;
The present makes the flaw,
And the only tied for strife
is the inch before the saw.
