A STORY OF FACT.
fTne action on which this simple tale is Iban4ed hap
uened in October, IrJ&T. The poor lad'a name la un
known. The sea-wind went booming and thrill
ing across Uio barren, rock-boBnd coast
of Labrador: There was snow" on the
ground, and the cold was bitter. Min
gled with the terrible song of the storm
were the groaning erck of a good ship's
timbers and the wihf outcry of her crew.
When these had fallen into awful silence,
another sound arose, still sadder in that
dreary watte the wailing of a very lit;
tic child. J Jo mid a point of rock on .a
path above ehc cliffs ctnie three .smalf
fluttering figures. How they had eseaj)
cd the wreck or made their way to that
place, they could not have told. Two
were mere babies. It was the elder of
these that made that shrill cry; the
youngest lay numbed and huddled up in
the arms of his sister, herself far too
weak for the burden. She had that pow
er of endurance in a sudden strait which
God gircs to somo by no means the
strongest of his creatures. Her childish
eyes anxiously peered out into the ob
scurity, in search of a friendly face.
The sound of feet clambering up the
cliffs, "bending down showers of pebbles
and sometimes slipping, back, brought
the children to a stand. Was it a friend
or foe? Perhaps there were strange,
fierce animals abroad in .this freezing
place where all was strange, or those
nameless horrors of night which child
The figure of a lad stepped the to path.
The little girl advanced: "Oh.Mr!"
she could not say a word more, but
broke down in sobs. When the strang
er drew near her, the bty's terror, too;
broke out afresh ; he screamed aloud for
his mother, and hid his lace in his sis
"Mother will come soon," said the lad.
The girl looked up eagerly.
Will she, sir! " And father, too ? '
" Yes, we shall find thein ; never fear.
Why, my man, what is it? Look up,
and never cry ! ", -
He knelt down before the child, aud
at last mounted him upon his own shoul
ders. " I can carry baby, too," he said.
"Oh, sir, he is so heavy."
" Lighter for me than yon, my dear."
"IXow what shall we do next ?"
The boy began to whine again. "So
cold, so cold! want. to go to bed." x i
"And we ars hungry, too, sir," ad
ded the little girl, in a pitifully patient
voice. - , f
" Well, then, we will find you a bed
at once, and 1 think I have some supper
in my pocket."
Little pick-a-beek gave tokens of a de
sire to have his supper forthwith.
"'So, not till we are in b.il Come,
little woman, hold my jacket. That.will
The children labored on with the
cheery guide, who was but a poor, we.tk
ly lad, ami at last fell hN strength failing
under the pressure of the wind and the
children's weight, and yet there was no
sign of human help. Suddenly, the fit
ful moonlight showed a rent in the rocky
wall beside their path. Within, at the
further end, he found a small, dry place,
with a pile of withered moss heaped up
against its side. The lad thanked God
for it, and smoothed it into a pallet, on
which he carefully laid the little ones.
" Will you not lie down, too, sir ? " ask
ed courteous, courageous little girl.
" I want my slipper," wailed the boy,
and tinniest began to raised afecblcry.
The lad took from hit pocket some
hard biscuit soaked with sea water nau
seous enough, but the children were too
hungry to be nice. There was not much,
and he divided it all among them.
""Will you not have some of it, sir?"
"I ! oh, no, my dear. I had my sup
per long ago."
So the biscuit was all eaten and the lit
tle fellow stopped crying.
"Xow j-ou must say your prayer-,'
said their protector.
The poor little lass began dutifully to
tumble out of her most-bed. r
"You can lie still dear; I will pray
and you shall say amen."
" Will God listeifwhen we are lvintr
down?" " 1
-"YeV ito-night H will." f
Then, kncclirii: beside the brave child.
he nttered a' reverent petition: "Wc
thank .Thee, dcac,Lord,jor having saved
us from great danger, and pray Thee to
nuiko-our lives wortby-oi-beine saved."
This was. the .simplest bunion ofa hit
(jrayur,. unuiiig ivuus. inc omnipotent
Then he sat down to wait "until the
children should fall asleep. lie would
then, he Ihonght, slip away to find their
parents and the other survivors, should
there be any, and pcrhaps'to get the rest
and refreshment he so sorely needed.
Hut the unconscious childish s'eltisbiicss
was not yet satisfied.
"So told," wailed the boyj and pit
eons little cry. " Babj- cold,"' joined in
choruS. It was iu vain to pile the moss
"I want my blanket," was the clear
demand. A t last, the kind lad, stripping
off his jacket, spread it over thcoi and
tucked it in, and then tbcy-wcre satis
fied. Shivering as with ague, be crept
down beside his trostv little friend, as
he somehow felt the brave little girl to
be, trying to get warm. It would not
bo long, be thought, before the children
would fall asleep, and then ho would
warm himself with exercise, and find
help at last. Once, when all was still,
he ventured to move; bat this time it
was his patient little friend who pleaded
in a very wakeful voic: "Fleas, sir,
don't go away. I cannot get to sleep,
and I am so frightened." So he stayed.

eamc sobbing, like that of one plunged

ing that like the burden ot a song.
"At last the air teemed to grow warm,
and there was a swirling in" hi brain like
eddy of musical wate" s'. ' ""Why am I

Value or "rorrst Tree-.
One of the hard things for our pru
dent, thrifly people to learn is the clima
tic value of forest trees. The first
thing the old settlers did was to destroy
the forests ; and their decendeut in
most places still value trees solely for
the wood they will 3-ieM. Kiitthe'morc
enlightened begin to see the fatal inis-
uikc maue in roooing me lulls 01 tlieir
natural covering, the sources of moist
ure, and nUnittors of rain. TIic forests
are not only fertilizers, but also the irri
gators aud reservoirs of the country.

west, 'the tanners are planting'trect to
restore the fertility ot the soil and pre

The history of the Isthmus of Suez hat
taught us a striking lesson in this re

SOME OFTUECflARKES OF NEPOTISM XFFECT-
.From Ike Jfew York Tiin-.
A- few days nco tint- Brooklyn Eagle
brought together into one article accuta-
.titui against Gen. Gralit which the San,
tho iMfi'i and other yapcr bitterly op
posed to tliu A'resiuentjnreconsjatttiy re
peating. XhQ I'rcsiOenr uetamcrs ami
it may save misconstruction to say here
that in the remarks c have tq" make
about thejw wel9 iiofjninywa)- refer
to the Enql', which pndy repeats charg
es withont inventing them have echoed
their complaints so otieii mat ntiastthey
proIabIy believe in their justice. To pre
vent others falling ,into the samo error,
tve: undertook to realy to tiic i.ailcs ar
ticle as soon as we had time to inquire
into the facts. Wo novr proceed to do so.
The Eaqle says, " Grant went into of
fice toor,and is notorious.!)-a millionaire
already ; and ho can not have made his
million out of his ofheial salary, or his
Irsitimate receipts in public service." If
one part of tho duty of the President of
the United States was to answer even
question addressed to him about his pri
vate circumstances, and empty his pocket
book to every visitor to show how much
money he had about him, the dignity of
tho ofliee would much increased and,
pcr!aps,.the peonus .would notconstilt
thqirpwli interests by subjecting their
chief officer to'sueh ill-usage. The Pres
ident considers Ins selt-re-pect, and wc
believe he aio considers the wishes of the
people, by mv.w -replying to any attack
made 'upon mm- " - ";" l nu uutnonty
lojspcak, for 4u"b ,,ut "'f' inquiries
have atsured' u1 that outside of his of-fteial-rttlarvhit
i"--o)iie ijoos not exceed
?G.O00 a vcar. i' piiiieijial property
is his farm of six or seven Hundred acres,
near St. LonN.part of which was inher
ited by M"r,t. Grant; 'hc remaind -r was
fioiigh't by Gen. Grant from the other
heirs, nut of tho one hundred thousand
dollars given him by the citizens of New
York- before, he became Prident. One
of ijip'cnarjcs agains' him it that this
St TK.nla&rmwasafiresciittohim. The
rest of the one hnndre' thousand dollar
rclenvd to was ntcd in paying otr ttie
mortgage on hit hniiuiti I street, Wash
incJon.now owned by (Jencntl Sherman,
nnTl in nurchating and furnishing his
house at Long Branch, which he is charg-
V.il with bavin? received as a lircsent
from ."rr. Jlnndiv that eing another
fabrication set afloat by the .S"'a about
the President, anil repeated eagerly by
tJio journals opTiocd 0 lii- Not u dol
lar's lcnrih of property las been pretented
to General Grant since he hreame President.
During the war tho President saved
something out of hit n'av as -Major Gen
eral wc are half ashamed to refer to
such matters, but sine tlw Rigle a-k
for the f..e!?. it may as well have them
all anil with the money s saved he
bought a part interest in some Chicago
lots, which have appreciated in value,
but hitherto have yielded no income.
Tie aKo bought a rna!l amount of horse
railroad stock, whirh he still own, and
which pays a moderate dividend. He
was given, while General in the army, a
house in Philadelphia, which ho rents
for about two thousand dollars a year.
Another statement of n Eagle, is that
"tho Sun hat printed repeatedly, uneon
tradictory from any qnarter, a list of
twenty-fivo or more relatives whom
Grant ha appointed to office under him
-elf." Wo hope that the day will come
v!inn Iioinralile journalists will be
ashamed to attcrt th'nt anything is true
of General Grant because the Sun -ays
it it true. The lit in question ht. been
contradicted ; it is false in every partic
ular ! and wc will print it at the clo-eof
this article, with comments which prove
it to be false. The President' relative
who do hold office were chiefly appoint
ed by hit predecessors ; was he bound
to turn them out when he c.intc into of
fice himself? Is it to lie the rule of pub
lic life that when a man accepts a re
sponsible position he is to begin by
thriisting hi kinsfolk out of any office
they may happen to hold, and giving up
all 'the property ho may po ess? Do
the people expect this ?'
A third statement is that f Jen. Grant
received twenty-five thousand dollars
stock in the Seneca Stone Company, as
a gift, and then appointed Mr. Cooke,
the President of that Company, Terri
torial Governor of Washington, 'there
by enhancing the value of the stocK of
Messrs. Cooke, Grant fc Co." This ii a
total misrepresentation of a very simple
transaction. Shortly after the organiza
tion of the Seneca Stone Company in
J?G7, nearly a year before Gen. Grant
was nominated President, hei was invited
by Mr. II. I). Cooke and orhersto take
twenty thousand dollars worth of stock
as an ?nrcfmit. He thought well of it,
and surely no one will deny that he was
free to invest hi money in any entcr-pri-c
he choe. He had at much right
to u-e his money at his discretion at any
other citizen. Reinvested ten thousand
dollars in the purchase of the stock, id
if hitt never paid Mim a cent. He has been
anxious for a long time to sell this stock ;
perhaps om of the accncrs would like
to buy it! tiovernor Cooke was ap
pointed last February stock lionght in
18fi7; Cooke appointed in 1871 and
that appointment had about a much to
do with Seneca stone at it bail with the
deposits of the past-tcrliary period.
The charge that President Grant qtiar
nds with Sumner and is friendly with
Xve, Jke-, and that be absent himself:
from Washington daring summer, we
leave people to form their own opinions
about. The accusa ion that somebody
very near to the Presidential person was
engaged in the "gold gassMing" affair
of Fisk and Goald, is utterly refilled by
Jay Croald s own evidence, as published
in the oficial report ot the investigation,
by the Forty-Irrt Congress. Thc pr.
ident himself gare orders te sell gold en
the isfainni RUf4r lnaV--.iW nr.
the infaamas "Black Friiar
der which hroaght the
end. 'The esjrly saaa sraar
ed 10 drag Gen. Giaat's aaBfrs
transactions was James Fisk, Jr., a no
torious thief and swindler. Is there
any respectable man or woman in this
country who would suffer her of his es
timation ot a friend's character lowered
by anything James Fisk, Jr., might say?
Ami yet thc President of the United
States must be condemned by party pa
pers, on ti e evidence of a man
who has committed the worst
kind of offenses against the
lawr and who to the eternal disgrace of
thc Judges who administer that law, i
still receding in bis stolen wealth, in
stead or breaking stone iu Sing Sing.
As to tho objections to Gcu. Grant's
course in public affairs, wc do not pro
pose to answer them now; wc merely
repeat our own'opinion that in the main
his policy is a sound, wise, and beneficial
one. A mail of purer private life than
Gen. Grant never occupied tho Presi
dential Chair. Ta it just is it worthy of
the President's position, or of this great
nation that ho should be catled upon
to account at any moment by every dis
appointed office seeker who chooses to
invent a new slander against him ? Wo
have replied to these charges because,
by constant repetition, they might have
imposed upon credulous minds. Thc
more thoroughly they are sifted, the
more shamefully false and malicious
they will appear. Wc lielieve that the
majority of the people look upon th.se
calumnies with indignation. They have
made thousands of friends for the Pres

class of tho communify which rarely
busies itbelf actively in politics, but
which admires pluck and silence in pub
lic men which hates to see injustice done,
and which despises the cowards who in
to undermine a public reputation by de
faming private character. Whatever re
jected otfico seekers, liko thc calumnia
tors of thc Sun, may do or say, -the great
majority of the American people are
iovers of fair play; thsr detest slander

Grant all the more becaus" lie goes on
steadfastly doing tlio'r work, in disre

who hate him b;catie he will not yield
to their demands.
We now subjoin the so call list of " the

daily by the Sun. It will still be pub

proof gi- u below of its falsity. Hut
at any rate, the man who does publish it

Col. John W. Forney, in the latest of
Ins papers devoted to his recolcction ot
public men, iu the Washington Sunday
Chronicle, speaks as follows of Stephen
A. Dongla :
On the day after thc firing upon Fort
riimtcr I met J-icphen A. Doaglas upon
tno Pennsylvania avenue, in the citv of
Washington. Naturally anxious to as
certion what part ho would take in com
iug event, 1 put the question to him,
" What is now to be done, my dear
friend; what are we to do? I shall nev
er forget his answer: " wu must fight
for our conn try and forget all difference.
There can be but two parties the par
ty of p.itroits aud the party of traitors.
Ve belong to the firsL Abraham Lin
coln txs President. His old adversary
whohadjlefeated him for Senate in !&.:(
and whom in 100, called that t:ry day
atthcWhiteliouseand protlered hiscouu
sel and semco. The tiring upon Sum-
tvrou the Mthot April, lollowed by tho
atta'-k on the Massachusetts troops on
the 10th ot thc same mouth, raited thc
question how the soldiers were to
re.ich the capital, already bcleaued by
the prepared hosts of the South. It was
in the discussion of this question that
Mr. iiincolu made ttie memorable re
mark, "If we cannot pass over Balti
more or under Baltimore, we must nec
essarily pats through Baltimore," aud it
uns in one ot Ins interviews that Judge
Douglas presed thc suggestion that mc
might go round Baltimore and reach
Washington via Annapolis by water, a
suggestion subsequently carried out.
During this cordial intercourse Mr. Lin
coln solicited Judge Dougla to go to
the West and raiec his voice in favor of
tho government, and it was in retoniH:
to bis request that the great Senator
tunicd his face homeward, and there
the magnetic fjccch which aroused hi
followers and gave to the administration
that timely support which helped to fill
our annie, to increase the republican
column, snd to add to republican coun
sel the culture and courage of thc dem
ocaratic party. A little more than a
month alter (Jane 3, 1SGI,; Stephen A.
Dougla died at Chicago, aged forty
eight years and two month. But Abra
ham Lincoln did not forget him. He
directed the dqtartment to be dotbed in
mourning, and thc colors of tho differ
ent anion regiments to !e dratcd. Xor
did hi rtntialby end in word. He
stezed the lirt occasion to bonnr Use
sons of Daaglat an example fitly fol
lowed by General Grant. JSobcrt Mar

add, as I feci I may bos by aathority,
that had Judge Doaglas lived he wo aid
have been called into the.adaiiniatrat'oa

Theodore Tilton's Gotten .Lycay:
"Thc laborers of this coontry ' want

Xow we shoald like to know first, who
are the " laborers of this country ? "and
secondly what these "laborers of this
country" desire? Is Theodore Tilton,
who never did a " hand's tarn" of man
ual labor in his life, a " laborer" of this
or any other country? Is Gorg Fran
cis Train a laborer? Is Mr. Woodhnll
a laborer ? Or, raising to a different class
is Mr. Wendell Phillips a rich man by
inheritance, and in all bis tMti. 'associa
tions and habit an aristocrat'ot the first
water is he a hiliorcr? Wo presnsr.'sj
neither the ladylike men nor the gen
tlemanly women mentioned will count
themselves laborers iu the sense that
blacksmiths aud coopers and coadimak
ers aud printer are tnenbers of tho la
boring classes." By wbst right, then,
do they assnme to speak for the labor
iug classes, of whose rights and inter
ests ami wisltos Uiey have no personal

called apo-tles and sent messengers. If
tho " loboring classes" need a month

Burrit, or the study shoemaker of Xa--tick,
Henry Wilson, or Horace Greelejv
who has ' stuck type" for his daily
bread let some of tbeaa speak, and
everybody will listen. Hut as it, Is,
there is a deadly smell of fraud about
the " apostles of" labor."
When ths man rises up who is author
ized to speak for the " iaboing clsaart"
let it be remembered that ho mast speak
in t tor the c-otqier and printer alone, but

It may be that in such a country rant
"mutual concessions" are required, but
at present they are not ak-l for by
men and women who cm rcap.-ctfullv
inform anybody what they are, and all
the bloviating we have heard on tho ub
