The following beautiful poem 119 writ
ten byChaa. Dickens :
When the lessons and tasks are all ended,"
And the school for the daj is dismissed,
And the little ones gather around me,
To bid me good night and be kissed ;
0 ! tho little while anus that encircle
My neck iu a tender embrace ;
0 1 the Mnilea that are haloes of heaven,
Shedding sunshine of love on my face.
And when they are gone I sit dreaming
Of my childhood too lovely to last;
Of love that my keart will remember,
While it wakes to the pulse of the past,
Ere Uie world and its wickedness made me
A partner of sorrow and sin;
When the glory of God was about me,
And the glory of gladness within.
O ! my heart grows weak as a woman's,
And the fountains of feeling will flow,
When I think of the paths steep and stony,
Where the feet of the dear ones must no;
Of the mountains of sin hanging o'er them,
Of the tempest of Fate blowing wild;
0 ! there's nothing on earth half so holy
As the innocent heart of a child !
They are idols of hearts and of households;
They are angels of God iu disguise ;
His sunlight still sleeps in their tresses,
His glory still gleams in their eyes ;
O ! those tyrants from home & from heaven,
Thry have made me more manly & mild!
And I know now how Jesus could liken
The Kingdou of God to a child.
1 ask not a l!f j for the dear ones,
All radiant, as others have done ;
But Ihat life may have just enough shadow
To temper the glare of the sun;
I would pray God to gaurd them from evil,
But my prayer wo'd bound hack to myself;
AU ! a seraph may pray for a sinner.
But a sinner must pay for himself!
The twig is so easily liended,
1 have banished the rule and the rod ;
I have taught them Ihe goodness of knowl
edge, They have taught mo goodness of Gxl ;
My lieart is a dungeon of darkness,
Where I shut them from breaking a rule;
My frown is sufficient correction ;
My love is the law of the school.
I shall leave the old house in the autumn,
To traverse its threshold no more;
AU 1 how I shall sigh for the dear ones,
That meet me each morn at the door !
X shall miss the "good-nights" & the kisses,
And the gush of their innocent glee,
The group on the green, and the flowers
That are brought every morning to me.
I shall miss them at morn and at eve
Their song in the school and the street ;
I Bhall miss the low hum of their voices,
And the tramp of their delicate feet.
When the lessons and tasks are all ended,
And Death says, "The school is djstnissd !"
May the little ones gather around me,
To bid me grod-night and be kissed.
Another Invention in Steam Engines—
A Revolution in Progress—Centrifugal
A new invention lias been introduc
ed into the mechanical world, which
promises to work an entire revolution
in the application ot steam to the
various purposes of hfo. People had
supposed that about the last improve
ment that could be made in steam
engines had been made, but this new
invention proves that people in sup
posing this were mistaken. A ma
chine has been introduced which does
away with cylinder principle alto
gether, as well as with the piston,
crunk, steam chest, oil cans, &c. The
engine which makes all these changes
is the Centrifugal Steam engine, and
is the invention of Benjamin Frank
lin, ot Westmoreland county. Al
ready it has taken high rank among
the recent inventions of the dav. and
it is morally certain to overcome all
obstacles & win its way to a foremost
position. The most competent prac
tical engineers h:ivisexaminc-d it, and
pronounce its success certain. They
confidently predict that It will super
sede all other kinds.
The facts which recommend it are
many. As we have paid, it does away
entirely with the cylinder principle,
dependlns on centrifugal force. Thus
tho mechanism ia greatly simplified,
and tho engine is much more easiiy
understood and much more economi
cally worked than the old kind. In
the new engine friction is almost en
tirely overcome. It will produce fif
teen hundred revolutions to the min
ute, with o:i-j-fourth of the steam re
quired to produce the same number
ol revolutions in the old style, and
with the same amount of horsepower.
The Centrifugal Steam engine con
denses almost all of ita steam, which
It Is needles- to aay.ls.in Itself, a great
saving. Another prime recoinmendv
ation of the new engine is the fact
that its great simplicity of construc
tion makes it much more economical
than any other. It can be constructed
for not more than one fourth of the
expense required for tho old style.and
when made, it is almost Impossible
for it to get out of order. So simple
is it that a child can run it,
The Bloody Ku Klux Klan.
Under the above heading Radical
papers are still publishing an exag
gerated account of the killing of a
white store keeper and his nearo clerk
at Franklin, Tennessee. Some of
them go so far as to suppress the fol
lowing paragraph, which was incor
porated in the telegraphic report :
"The murder of Blerfleld at Frank,
lin, on Saturday night, was not
prompted by political considerations.
About a month ago a little white girl,
named Ezell, was outraged by a ne
gro, who was shortly after taken from
the jail and hanged. Two days af
terward the girl's brother was shot
dead by a lot of negroes, and it is now
proved that Bieriield instigated the
latter murder. There is no doubt that
E.oll's friends killed JJierJiekl by way
The Radical newspapers manufac
ture outrages out of such occurrences,
and every deed of violence which
takes place in the South is at once pa
raded as the work of that mythical
concern, the Ku Klux Klan.

A DESPERATE GANG.
The Recen Express Robberies—Important
Arrests in Toronto.
[From the Toronto Telegraph, Aug. 14.]
A few days ago, in an article head
ed "A Shoul of Thieves," we stated
that there were in Canada a number
of the most expert robbers of the
United Statee, who had been compel
led to take voyage here in order to
escape punishment for crimes com
mitted a short time ago. We 'also
stated that several of these fellows
were in our city, and that they were
closely watched by a small party of
American detectives, who had been
sent here for that purpose. Though
it was evident of late some important
move was in contemplation on the
part of the detectives, they left their
intentions to themselves until last
evening, when they created an in
tense excitement and gathered togeth
er a large crowd of persons on King
st-eet, by arresting several suspicious
persons who have been living here
for the last few weeks.
The arrests were made last evening,
shortly before seven o'clock, by sev
several members of the Toronto po
lice, assisted by the American detec
tives. The arresting party entered
the Turt Club Hott l on King street,
near Bay, kept by Messrs. Morton
and Charles Thompson, and at once
proceeded to take into custody all
persons in tho house. Morton was
th first man arrested and he at once
shouted "murder," three times to the
top of his voice. This the police took
to be a signal to other parties in the
house that tho Philistines were upon
thtm iu the hope that they might
escape. The doors and windows were
therefore immediately guarded, and
no one was allowed cither to enter or
depart. The polico then went through
the house and an ested the following
parties : Morton and wife, Moore.and
Williams, the keeper of a gambling
house in St. Catharines, They were at
once handcuffed and marched away
to jail in charge of the police. By
this time an immense crowd of people
had gathered in front of the hotel,
and considerable excitement prevail
ed . As soon as the prisoners were
removed the house was placed in
charge of the American detectives,
and they still have possession.-
uiie uiese operations were going
on at ' the Turf Club 'HoteL,. another
force of police went to the house of
Dan Thompson, the comedian, and
arrested Mrs. Thompson, who was
the only person in the house. Dan
was taken on the street just after the
arrests! at the Turf Club. A third
party of police at the same time made
a descent on the house of L. W,
Moore, on John, street, and arrested
Mrs. Moore and Mrs. Sturge, her
mother. One of tho most important
members of the ganc was still missing
and from information received the
police were led to believe that he was
at Kennedy's Club House, Brockton,
As the securing of him was of the
greatest moment, prompt measures
were taken to capture him. Mr. Irish,
agent of the American Express Com
pany here, in company with a mem
ber of the Toronto police force, got Ln
t f . (IU..infVA nn.l -1 I- ..11 ,
j .a cwi i mfcC U11U UlUYCttlluaU mpiU-
ity to lirockton. Quick as they were,
information of tho arrests jn the city
had reached the house when they ar
rived there. Tnompson was in the
bar-room as they entered, and imme
diately suspected the object of their
visit, he made an attempt to escape

fast enough. Mr. Irjsh sprang and
ana collared him, after which the
"darbies" were placed ' on his wrists
by the policeman, he was hustled into
the carriage and brought back to the
City in double quick time. This com
pleted the arrests. The prisoners
were all taken to the jail, placed in
separate cells, and there they, now are
awaiting the Issue ot the legal steps
that are to bji pakep for the purpose of
securing their extradition to the Uni
ted States. They are determined to
defend themselves In the best manner
possible, and for that purpose have
secured the services of Hon. J. II.
Cameron and the Hon. M. C. Came
ron, who are already actively engaged
on behalf of their clients.
The crimes for which the parties
have been arrested are numerous, and
of the weightiest character, but on
only two of them will their extradi
tion be sought. These as has always
been supposed, are express robbers.
As our roadors are awaro, a number
of very heavy robberies ol this nature
have been committed in tho States of
late, and the police throughout the
Union have been engaged in search
of the perpetrators. Againit the gang
arreted here there are charges of
their having robbod tho Adams Ex
press Company, the American Ex.
press Company, and the Merchants'
Union Express Company. Each
company has lost largo amounts of
money of latejthrough these robberies,
but in two instances the robberies
were particularly serious, and com
mitted in a .manner that displayed
daring and desperation of the most
astonishing character, stamping Ui
perpetrator as villains of the deepest
dye. Jt is for these two crimes In
particular that the arrests were made
last night, and therefore a few facta
regarding the robberies may not prove
interesting In this place.
The first of these two robberies in
point of time is that of the Merchants'
Union Express Company. It was
committed on May 1st of this year,
in the express car of a train on the
Hudson River Railroad. The story
of the managers in charge of the car
is that, at a small station a short dh7
tdnee this side of New York, just as
the train was moving away from the
platform, two men entered the car,
They immediately seized him, threw
him on the fl or, bound his hands be
hind his back,bound his feet together,
placed a gag In his mouth to prevent
his crying out, hoodwinked him by
tying a thick bandage across his eyes
and then bound him securely to the
stove ia the car. They next took tho
safe keys from him, opened the safe,
filled several carpet bags with tho
money and valuables contained in
the safe, and then departed irom the
car, leaving the messenger tied and
bandaged, in which condition he was
found a short time later. The robbers
left the train at the next station and
succeeded in escaping with their
booty. They managed the affair so
well that all track of them was lost,
and the detectives at work on tho case
for a long time could find no clue to
the perpetrators. How they subse
quently got onthe track of the thieves
and worked up the case against them,
is for the detectives themselves losav.
We only know that they have arres
ted the parties mentioned above, and
state they have evidence against them
to prove their guilt beyond a doubt.
The second case was even more
bold and daring than the first. It was
perpetrated on May 22; on the Adams
Express Company at the town of
Seymour, Ind.nd is one of the most
desperate robberies in the whole an
nals of crime. The train was entered
at the town of Brownsville. The tr.iin
was a long one, composed of passen
ger, luggage, and express cars. - As
usual, the express car was in the for
ward part. While the train was
standing at Brownsville, the coupling
attaching the express car to the rest
of the train behind.it was withdrawn.
Some of the ruffians entered the cab
of the locomotive, whilo others took
possession of thp express 'car , steam
was turned on and the locomotive
moved off, carrying with it the ex
press car, leaving the balance of the
train standing at the station. The
whole thing was done in the course
ol a few moments, and with so little
noise and confusion that the people at
the station knew nothing about it un
til the locomotive and express car
were out of sight. The move was
well planned and skilfully executed.
As soon as they had moved away
from the station the robbers attacked
the messenger in charge of the ex
press car. He defended himself man
fully, and did not give in until after
a desperate strusrgle, during which he
received severe injuries. Being over
powered, the ruffians were not even
satisfied, but with a brutalily almost
surpassing belief, they tied him hand
and foot and threw him from the car
while it was rushing along at tho rate
of thirty miles an hour. The poor
fellow was so terribly Injured that he
never recovered. On the following
morning lie was found where his
murderers had thrown him, in a fly
ing condition. He was not able to
speak, but by signs he gave them to
understand what had happened. He
expired in les3 than twenty-four
hours afterwards. As soon as the
messenger was removed in the man
ner described, the robbers opened the
safe and took from it everything that
it contained. They packed their plun
der up in bundles, stopped the engine
near the town of Seymour and left it
there. Dividingtheir ill-gotten gains
between them, they separated into
small parties and struck across the
country in different.directions. Three
of them, it will be remembered, were
captured on tne following day, and
were hapged on the spot by the infu
riated populace. The remainder es
caped, and the detectives have been
on their track, and have every reason
to believe they have secured sorao of
them in the gang now locked up in
As yet we have not heard much as
to the previous history of the robbers.
The detectives say they are all des
perate and notorious criminals, whose
whole lives have been devoted to
crime ; and certainly,, if they were
engaged in the outrages mentioned
above.they must behardened yillaius.

For the past year we have been
failing slowly and surely failing, and
to day we give up the ghost. We
have not in these twelve months been
failing in health nor have we pecuni
arily suffered much loss, it is politi

fail to see that the Republican party
is what it should be or what many ol
its friends in years past supposed it
was the intention of the leaders to
make it. - The ghost which we have
given up is Radical Republicanism.
From this day henceforth and forever
to tho day when we are planted be
neath the sod, under which all Re
publicans and Democrats must sooner
or later lie, we shall advocate, in our
feeble way. the principles of Democ

We want it distinctly understood, as
we wish to receive all the cursing
from Republicans as soon as conveni
ent. There are many causes that have
led to this decided change in the poli
tics of this paper. The prime cause
is the total failure of the party to do
a single thiDg toward ' the reconstruc
tion ol the country. The leaders
appear to us not to care a continental
what happens to a State if she don't

The leaders of the Republican party
are political hacks renegades Irom

characters are spotted, and who care
no more for tho welfare of tho couutry
than we do for tho Cannibal Island.
They are notorious thieves, and leave
no stone unturned to accumulate
greenbacks, regardless of tho people
whom they misrepresent. We cannot
live in the house with such neighbors
hence we retire. In our retirement
we shall doubtless have something to
say hereafter that will not suit these
political thieves, and what we say

The nomination of General Grant
for President by the hen e-vention
has sickened thousands of republicans
throughout the land. They looked
upon the nomination as an acknowl

will meet next November as sure as
that time comes. They want to con

Does the Laboring Man Pay Taxes?

The Republicans of the 19th Con

for Congress, lie is the Bondholder's
candidate, insisting that the Bonds
must be paid In gold. There are in
the 19th District many Republicans
to whom this doctrine is not nalata-

have put in -nomination Dr. M. C.
Wood worth as the people's candidate.
'The Dr, is a Republican and served
jaitiiiuiiy in the recent war. He is
iu favor of paying the 5-20 Bonds in
Greenbacks and in lichtenlner the
taxes of the people. As betweenrliim

mass of the voters of that District
should not hesitate a moment as to
how to vote. They should vote for

those objects, and to inflict on the
