accomplished "in apite of the Btrong ef?

Democratio majority is put at 80,000.
According to Senator Morton, this shows
Kentucky to bo in a bad way.. By
others, however, her oondition will bo
regardod quite satisfactory:
The French Assembly is still avereo to

it is not surprising tbat the riotous spirit
of the mobs of that city Btill inspiro? n
fooling of dread and aversion among tho
friends of parliamentary government.
The Brat necessity of auoh a system is
freedom from overshadowing local influ?
ence. While Napoleon had at hand a
powerful army to obeck uprisings, and
while personal government prevailed,
Paris was a convenient capital; but. it is
a perilous location at periods when auto?

THE NORTH CABOLINA EI>ZOTXON:-It
seems probable from the returns that
the oall for a convention to change the

.defeated. The prime object of the
friends of the proposed change was to
lop off Borne of the abuses permitted
under the Republican Constitution, and
not, as has been alleged, to interfere
with the rights of. the negro. Thc
statute which authorized the vote ex
pressly- forbids any notion in the pro

naturally from tho recent statement that
the Count de O?arabord proposed to try
its efficacy. It means a Budden stroke
of State policy, usually intended for tho
overthrow of a constitntion or'a dynasty.
It is not an ordinary revolution, for the

LOVE.-There is nothing on eartl
worthy to be compared for a momen
with love. No other thing that can give
by itself, unalloyed happiness. A love
less wife is worthless, though passed ii
luxury and crowned with the provides
laurels of successful ambition. A Hf
well set about with love is blessed
though haunted by that restless fat
which seems to deny to some men ant
women what the world calls success. Ti
have boen without a parent's love ii
childhood, without the love of brother
and sisters; to havo passed youth with
out the more romantic lovo which make
Heaven of earth; and to live on in ma
turity, neither feeling nor inspiring tba
strong, enduring love, which makes an
burden light, so tbat it benefits the well
beloved, is to be poor indeed-so poe
that oven the pitying angels have no aim
to give them that can do any good. An
yet how many know nothing of love, c
only understand the word in its ooarsei
sense, so tbat ono blushes to have it ul
tered iu such presence. How man?
moro puro than these, sneer at it as a d(
lusion and absurdity, not uuderstandin
tbat puro lovo is not a thing of tb
senses, but of tho spul; not a flame
flickering and flashing over the passior
ato time of life, but a soft, Bteady glow
lighting it (rom tho cradle to tho grave
and ono may oven hope, burning on be
youd it, si Deo Heaven itself is love.
