COOLIE. -The New"York Tribune dis
covers cause for grave apprehension,! if
not positive alarm, in the , arraugements

into this country. It goes on to argue
that they are an effeminate race, with no

A GLOOMY PBOPHEOY.-The Hickman
(Ky.) Courier announces the death of
Miss Susan C. Godsey, known as the
sleeping wonder. The fact is well au?
thenticated that Miss G. had been, for
twelve years previous to her death, in a
state of ooma, or sleep. This disposi?
tion to constant Bleep was produced by a
severe attaok of, chill and fever, since
which tim? she only woke at intervals,
onoe or. twice a day, remaining awake
for bot a few minutes. On the day of
her death.she made one or two predic?
tions, which are given by the Cotirier for
what they are worth. One was that the
sun would be totally eclipsed on the 7th
of August, a fact of which she could not
have had any knowledge, os her friends
assort. Another was that1 'the san would
never shine as bright after that day,"
which will indicate that the end ot the
world is speedily approaching. Whether
a constant sleeper is better qualified to
predict future events than a wide-awake
prophet, is a point we will not pr?tend

The Saturday Review contains an arti
Fo?l?^ftfthe wriflr intojR pi?t?rfiqn^kle
I taila ]?f the toMio, bhfr?fer tf-tte point

Lingjpth^inter4|i8 a IfcrujM, 4|alj|, a>d a
heartless amusement;* ana "t?ra? was
when cruelty ?ad falsehood were essen?
tially sins that vitiated all. claims to gen?
tlehood." We are quite disposed to agree
with this sentiment. Bat in the same
breath tho essayist saya: "And yet the
world would be v?ry dull without that
by tho nama of flirting-that pleasant
something which is more than mere ac?
quaintanceship and lesa than formal
loverbood-thatindefinite interest by
which the one man or the. ono wo mau
beoomes a kind of microcosm for tho
time, mu? epitomo of ali that is, lovely."
It is hard to got a glimpse in this way of
undefinable interests, und of all that is
lovely, and to be informed that we should
on no account, without vitiating our
claim to gentlehood, at least grasp at the
pleasures within oar reach. The fact is,
to call flirting "an innocent kind of non?
sense," ts to talk lightly of every poi?
sonous folly. It is too often the wicked
diversion of thoughtless Women and silly
men, or of women of designing temper,
and men of a disposition to matoh. The
slighted young women who have been
disappointed and thrown over by artists
in flirtation are not at all to be regarded
as suffering angels, but it is useful to
consider that after their eyes, have been
dried, a little hardening of the heart will
set io, not at all likely to make them
more angelio than they were born to be.
Men who consider women fair game for
attentions that mean nothing desire
particularly to exercise their cultivated
gifts of fascination upon first-year belles,
and the effect of the process upon these
ladies is often of a very injurious charac?
ter. A male flirt is a stupid ooward, as 1
a rule, who leads a woman into personal
compromises with him, and, although he
may not boast of his intimacy, thc con?
sciousness that it is in bis power to do so
is torturo enough to tho victim of his at?
tentions. Of course, when there are
really two parties to tho sport it bo
somes a different thing, although the
word innocent is not appbcabJe to any
variety of the amusement. There aro
many women who are born flirts, who
?re quite equal to every tarn of tho pur?
suit, and who will baffle the oldest hands
at it. There are women, also, semi-de?
tached wives, who apparently exchange
license with their husbands in such mat?
ters, the gentleman giving leave to his
wife to walk and. to ride with whom she
will, the wife, on her part, never trou?
bling herself about her* husband's going
and coming, or with the genial notice he
may happen to beatow upon the good
looking girls of their mutual acquaint?
ance. These people can take care o!
themselves. The Saturday Review, a
short time ago, pleaded for the ?man?
cipation of the "bored" husband; when
the bored wife insists on the same lati?
tude we can scarce see how it oan be rea?
sonably denied her. This system of en?
deavoring to escape marital responsibili?
ty, and to shirk the duty of forbearance
incumbent npon married people, is dis?
tinctly evil, and flirting is far too mild
an expression to apply to the commonest
and most seductive means of escape.
In dealing with this subject it is too
often forgotten that there ia a olass of :
persons muoh concerned in it who may
suffer considerably from the notion that
tl ir tin g "is an innocent kind of amuse?
ment." It was only last month that a :
London barrister read out in court the i
letters of an erratic bagman who had i
jilted a dress-maker as brilliantly as a
guardsman might have jilted the daugh?
ter of a rural squire. Whenever these
breach of promise cases turn up, we may <
Dbser ve the grossness of the vice of flirta?
tion with the gilding quite rubbod off it. i
In too many examples the woman has I
suffered the worst betrayal, she not hav- <
ing us many things, probably, to distract 1
lier mind as her sister in higher circles. I
Here, indeed, tho amusement is not of
un innocent kind, and tho counsel for
tho defendant has, as wo know, con?
stantly to struggle for a mitigation of
damages by throwing in observations as
bo tho conduct of the plaintiff, also in?
consistent with the view that flirtation is
El harmless recreation. But it may be
said that flirtation is thc luxury of the
rich; poor people cannot afford the en?
tertainment, or when they go about it
blander into unseemly catustropbes. It
is doubtful whether tho well-to-do after
all arc not worse off from tho custom
than those boueath thom. What was
tho meaning of thc girl of tho period
scandal ? Why aro women accused of
heartless selfishness and extravagance ?
It may be, we suspect, that they have
sickened of honest lovo when so often
disappointed of it, and have then taken
to the drugged cup of flirtation. Lou?
don this year lias not boen freo from
strange rumors of thc consequences of
"this innocent kind of nonsense" in va?
rious quarters. A little smoko in this
cabe shows n great deal of smouldering
tire, and modem society noeds no in?
structions or incitations to "that bright
and animated intercourse which makes
tho hours pass so easily." The Saturday
Review hints that to go too far is to spoil
tho sport. Like wine, or tobacco, or tho
bicycle, you may have too much of a
good thing. Flirtation is ono of thc few
accomplishments, luxuries, or sins, from
which wo would recommend total ab
Btiueuco to the majority of ladies and
gcntlomcu. Intimacies will spring up of
a spontaneous and agreeable kind be?
tween men and women, which need in no
respect resemble that foolish, selfish, or
guilty exhibition of temporary emotions
mildly termed flirtation, but which is
simply a constructive apology for dere?
lictions of modest behavior.

age of Mr. ? iladstono's Irish Chnroh
Bill, which was foolishly expected to
pacif?cate Ireland. We pointed out nt
the start that it Was not'of itself equal to
producing such an effect, and judging by
tho accounts which reach us, it will pro*
bai)ly alienate tho Protestant population
in Ireland, for the time at least, without
conciliating the Kornau Catholics. It
remains to bo seen, however, whether
the prediction of one of the Irish oppo?
nents of the bill will be realized, that "it
will make every nnlonist a repealer, with?
out converting a single repealer into an'
unionist." Behind the church question,
and far more practical and deon rooted
in the popular emotions, is the land
question. As stated by the Bishop of
Peterborough, in his great speech in
the House of Lords, the whole of Ire?
land has eome into the possession of its
present proprietors by confiscation on
account of former rebellious, nine-tenths
of it being held by the landlord and one
tenth by the church, and it is not likely
that tho surrender of this one-tenth,
held hitherto by a body of gentlemen in?
dividually popular, is going to render
the Irish people contented with the re?
tention of the nine-tenths by the land?
lords, who are mostly absentees and not
favorites personally. " Still deeper down
in the Irish heart than even this, latent
and kept under foot by outside pressure,
is that absorbing passion for national in?
dependence, which can never be ap?
peased by any legislation which does not
proceed from itself.
We do not attribute much importance
to the reported Fenian project for
another invasion of Canadu. The or?
ganization boro possesses comparatively
little vitality, and tho administration,
which has shown so much vigilance of
late in repressing Cuban filibustering,
will, no doubt, if necessary, guard with
equal care its neutral obligations towards
England, in view of the importance of
making our conduct consistent with the
argument we have been holding with the
British Government on that subject,
growing out of the Alabama claims. The
demonstration in Limerick, however,
upon tho very heels of the passage of the
Irish Church Bill, looks significant and
ominous. Its influence may be felt in
discouraging some of the friends in Eng?
land of Irish reform, and, perhaps, per?
plexing Mr. Gladstone. But both he
and they have the satisfaction of having
done right in what they have effected so
THE MISSISSIPPI STEAMBOAT RIOT.-A
horrible affray occurred on the steamer
Dubuque after leaving this eity, this
forenoon, which terminated in the kill?
ing of two negroes (deck hands) and one
raftsman, and tho badly wounding of two
or three others. As near as I can learn,
the trouble originated as follows: Fifty
raftsmen came on board the boat at Da?
venport, and the clerk ordered two of
the negro deck hands to stand guard at
the gangway, while he assorted the deck
(rom tho cabin passengers, and not to
allow any one to pass without his permis?
sion. One of the raftsmen tried to pass
the guard and make his way to the cabio,
when the deck hand ordered him back
until his ticket was examined by tho
clerk. He, not liking this, commenced
pitching into the deck hands, who got
the best of him, when the raftsmen, to
the number of over 100, came to his res?
cue, stabbing and beating the two deck
hands until about dead, threw them into
the river, and made an assault on the
rest of the deck crow, succeeding in kill?
ing three more of them, and throwing
their bodies into the river. One of the
raftsmen was also killed in tho melee
making six in all killed.
As soon ns Hampton was reached
Captain Rhodes landed the boat, when
tho raftsmen drove the deck crew
ashore, injuring several of them with
stones. As soon as it was over, they
went aboard tho boat and ordered thu
captain to proceed up the river, or they
would burn his boat. Ho being in their
power, and fearing they would carry
their threat into execution, headed the
boat np stream, and in the meantime
telegraphed to tho sheriff here, who
chartered au extra train and left with a
largo force of men well armed. They
overtook the boat nt Clinton, and imme?
diately took possession of her.
On their arrival here, there wero 5,000
people on tho river bank, together with
the crew who wero driven oif the boat,
and with their and other portions of tho
crow's assistance they succeeded in re?
cognizing forty-two of tho men, who
wore taken to jail under a strong guard.
A. largo forco is posted about the jail,
and no further trouble is expected.

TRUTH IN BRIEF.-Any body oan soil
the reputation of an individual, howovei
puro and chaste, by uttering a suspicion
which his enemies will believe and bis
friends never hear of. A puff of idle
wind can take up a million of the seedf
of tho thistle, and do a work of mischiei
which the husbandman must labor long
and hard to undo, the floating particle:
being too trifling to be seen, and toe
light to bo stopped. Such are the seedf
of slander, so easily sown, so difficult te
be gathored up, and yet so pernicious ir
their fruits. They know that many t
mind will catch up the plague and be
como poisoned by their insinuation
without ever finding or caring to seei
tho antidote. No refutation can refutt
a sneer, nor any human skill prevent it

that this comet will approach nearer th
earth than any comet ever did before
and that either the earth or the come
will have to change its course, or a col
liston is inevitable. This comet is sait
to be many thousand times larger tba
the earth. It is a solid mass of fire, wit
a tail of fire that would reach around th
earth more than a hundred times, and
collision with our planet is not an ever
to be very ardently desired.

A STUBBORN FACT.-There is scarcely
any disease in which purgative medicines
are not more or less required, and much
suffering might be prevented were they
more generally used. .No person can
feel well while a costive habit of body
prevails. Besides, it soon generates se?
rions disoases, which might have been
avoided by a timely nse of cathartic me?
dicines. For this purpose, DR. TUTT'S
VEGETABLE LIVER PILLS are confidently
recommended. They are mild, safe,
prompt and uniform in their aotion.
They contain no mercury. Persons may
eat and drink as usual, and they may be
taken at any time. A7 6
THE SCIENCE OF HEALTH AND THE ART
OF HEALING.-HETNTTSH'S CELEBRATED
QUEEN'S DELIGHT puts every man in pos?
session of tho means of improving his
own health. Disorders of the Stomach,
Liver and Bowels are very numerous.
The Stomach is the great centre which
influences the health or disease of the
system-abused, debilitated by excess,
indigestion, offensive breath and physi?
cal prostration are the natural conse?
quences; allied to the brain, it is the
source of headaches, mental depression,
nervous complaints and unrefreshing
sleep. Tho Liver becomes affected aud
generates bilious disorders, pains in the
side, Sec. The Bowels sympathize by
costiveness, diarrhoea and dysentery.
The great power of the HETNITSH MEDI?
CINE is on the Stomach. The Liver,
Lungs, Bowels, Kidneys participate in
the recuperative powers and regenerative
operations of this great MEDICINE. To
sick and feeble wo advise a trial. A4
