Bright scenes with dark, combining, that
A mingled sense, like flowers aptm a tomb,
Of joy and sorrow to a fscliog heart.

Whispering ef snows and tempest soon to be;
And the bright paiutcd foliage ot tho grots
Smiles out its life and dies in gayety.

With thousand varied tints and colors gleams
To feast with joy tho visual appetite.

And field and grove, and throw their sweet

Tho gentle things have sought their humble
The little birds assemble on tho spray
And, conscious of the heaven appointed
Unfold their tiny wings and fly away
To trace the summer to a funkier clime.

FRAGMENTS OF THE EARLY HISTORY
OF OHIO COUNTY.
BV n. D. TATLOR.
Largely intermingled with the preccnt
population of our county is the llotvc fam
ily, Heorse, Edmond and Kobert Kovve,
were among the tirnt settlers and best
farmers on Walton's creek. Industrious
in their habit-, honest in their dealings,
and social and jovial in their intercourse
ith others, and fond of all kinds ol
jokes, never failing to have eome good-
humored 6lo?y to tell on each other.
George Howe was a remarkable man in
various reelects. He could neither read
or write, yet his powers of mental arith
metic or calculation were remarkable.
For many years he sold the greater
amount of meat and vegetables mat
wire bought by the citizens of Hartford,
Perhaps he was never kuown to fail in
tilling his engagements, no matter what
was the elate of the weather, or how dark
the prcwous night, he would be in with
his marketing, and ready to sell before
the citizens wore fairly out of their beds.
Aud no matter how many different arti
cles the purchaser" might buy, Howe,
without filate or pencil, could tell to a
cent the amount of the hill, bo, with
equal fucility he could pefform almost
any ordinary calculation involving addi
tion, subtraction, multiplication, and di
virion. His marketiug was always equal
lo what he represented it to be, and pco
pie who traded with him nerer bad any
right to complain. Possessed of a large
portly frame, fine intellectual head and
face, nnd sound practical sense, with a
proper education he might bare been a
leader among men.
It is a mot remarkable facl that men
of iron will aud strong intellectual fac
ulties, contentedly live to old age with
out an effort to obtain an education. Yet
among our early 6cttlers were a number
of men of this character. Men whose
inatc principle of right, strong perceptive
and analytical powers of mind, had
reared them to the first eUindard of re
spectability in their neighborhoods. Few
such men have such a wife as the illus
trious Andrew Johnson, or even a friend,
in their youth lo point the way, and aid
them in taking the first steps, else they
would surely make some advance up the
hill of science, if done by torch light and
at the sacrifice of hours spent in idle,
Each of the elder Howes left large
families, and a Urge portion of their de
scendants are frugal, industrious, and
punctual in their dealings, and remarka
ble for the good u,uality of their market'
ing. To know that an article of mar
keting comes from a Howe, is still a
pretty sure guarante of its good quality.
No old settler occurs more vividly to
the mind of the writer than old Elijah
Williams, Iivinc near Hartford, on the
South side of Muddy creek. Mild, mod
est, and unassuming, nerer involved in
any family, church, or neighborhood
feuds. He and his good lady lired and
died at a good old age, leaving untar
nished memories. Other parents pointed
out to their children, the quiet, good or
der and affectionate harmony of this
family of children as an example ; and
it was. no doubt, a lsfortunc to our
community that all the sons, save one,
died in early life, for all those sons, un
less they had been unfortunate in select
ing wives, might have reared equally re
spectable families. The only surviving
son, Mr. Jerry Williams, seems to have
walked in the footsteps of his father.
Genealogy, or the study of families,
might be one of the most useful studies
that we could indulge in. Nations, states,
families, and even neighborhoods, hare
their peculiar, marked characteristic
traits, in a greater or less degree. This
is owing partly to the force of example,
and mainly to the transmission of quali
ties from parent to child. These qualN
ties, when possessed by each parent, el
dom fail to be transmitted to the offspring,
But, unfortuately, we pay too little at
tention to our matrimonial alliances. We
see two brothers, apparently equal in
moral, social and intellectual qualities.

HARTFORD, OHIO COUNTY, KENTUCKY, OCT. 24, 1877.
One marries a woman fully his equal and
they rear a family which docs honor to
their name. The other marries a giddy,
enullcsx, senseless tlirt, without system,
energy, industry or llxcd principle. That
brother, if a man of iron nerve nnd will,
may struggle through unpcathed, hut the
chances arc that he nnd his whole fam
ily will sink lo to insignificance, if not to
iirnominv and crime. We sometimes
laugh nt the F. F. Vs of old Virginia,
and it is true that they have now pretty
well played out. By their unbounded hos
pitality, high living, and prodigality,
most of their princely estates hare gone
into the hands of their griping, pernK
cious orersccrs and employes. Yet the
descendants of those first families of
Virginia furnish at least one half of the
distinguished men of the South and
Against the theory of transmission of
qualities from parent to child may be
urged the fact thst the sons of so many
distinguished men prove worthless
drones in sooiety. For this result may
be assigned various reasons. Young
men of vaulting ambition are sometimes
too unscrupulous of the taode of rising
to distinct'on, and marry for wealth or
family influence and patronage, without
regard to the intellectual qualities of
their wires. In addition lo this the
wives and children of great men rely too
much on their imparted greatness, and
become mere drones in society, using no
efforts or industry to acquire greatness by
their own merits.
All history points out instances of
family grcatnass. The Catos, Scipios,
Cirsors, of Home; the historical fami
lies of England; the Bonapartee, of
France; the Lees, IUndolphs, Brecken-
ridges and Marshalls, of America, are
Eclipse's descendants, by careful breed
ing and training, hare eclipsed his time,
and by like means our ancestors' virtues
and heroism may be surpassed by their

Tbe l'l-ewldeafa Mrwma;c.
Washington, October 1C The Presi
dent's message, which was transmitted to
Congress to-day, is as follows:
Fki.low-Citizius or tbi Srkath axd
Hocse op KtTREMWTATiVKS : The ad
journment of Congress without making
appropriations for tho support of the
army for the present fiscal year has ren
dered necessury 'he suspension of pay
ments to tlie-ollicers and men of the sums
due them for services rendered after the
30th day of June la. The army exists
by virtue of statutes, which prescribes its
numbers and regulates its organization
and employment, and which fix the pay
of it officers ansl men, and declare their
right to receive the same at stated peri
ods. The statutes, however, do not au
thorize the payment of troops in the ab
sence of specific appropriation therefor.
TheConctitulion has wisely provided that
no money shall be drawn from the treas
ury but iu consequence of appropriations
made by law, and it has also been ile
clared by statute that no department of
the Government shall expend in any one
fiscal year any sum in excess of the ap
propriation made by Congress for that
fiscal year. We hare therefore an army
authorized by law and entitled to be
paid, but no funds available for that pur
pose. It may also be said, as an addi
tional incentive to prompt action by
Congress, that since the commencement
of the fiscal year, the army, though
without pay, has been constantly and
actircly employed in arduous and dan
gerous service, in the performance of
which both officers and men hare dis
charged their duty with fidelity and
courage, and without complaint. These
circumstances ia my judgment constitute
an extraordinary occasion requiring Con
gress to be convened in advance of the
time prescribed by law for your meeting
in regular session. The importance of
speedy action upon this subject, on the
part of Congress, is eo manifest that I
venture to suggest the propriety of mak
ing the necessary appropriation for the
bupport of the army for the current year
at its present mnximum numerical
strength of 25,000 men, leaving for future
consideration all questions relating to an
increase or decrease of the number of en
listed men. In the event of the reduc
tion of the army by subsequent legislas
tion during the fiscal year, the excess of
the appropriation could not be expended,
and in the crent of its enlargement, the
additional sum required for the payment
of the extra force could be provided in
due time It would be unjust lo the
troops now in service, and whose pay is
already largely in arrears, if payment to
them be further postponed until after
Congress shall have considered all the
questions likely to arise to fix the proper
limit to the strength of the army. The
estimates ol appropriations for the eup
port of the military establishment for the
fiscal year ending June 30, 1878, were
transmitted to Congress by tho former
Secretary of the Treasury, at the opsning
of the session in December last. These
estimates modified by the present Secre
tary, so as to conform to the present re
quirements are now renewed, amounting
to t32,43G,7Gi 98, and having been trans
mitted to both bouses of Congress, are
submitted for your consideration.

I take this opportunity to invite your
attention to the propriety of adopting at
your present session the necessary legis
lation to enable the people of the United
States to participate in the advantages of
the International Exhibition of the agri
cultural industry and fine arts, which is
to be held at Paris in 1878, and in which
this Government has been invited by the
Government of Frnnoc to- take part.
This invitation was communicated to this
Government iu May, 1876, by the Minis
ter of France at this capital, and a copy
thereof was submitted to the proper com
mittee of Congress at its last session, but
no action was taken ou the subject. The
Department of State hare received many
letters from various parts of the country,
expressing a desiro to participate in the
exhibition, and numerous applications of
a similar nature have beon made at the
United States Legatioa at, Paris. The
Department of State has also received of;
ficial advices of the strong desire on the
part of tho French Government that the
Uuited States should participate in the
enterprise, and space has hitherto been
and U still reserved in the exhibition
building for the use of exhibitors from
the United States.
In order that our industries may be
properly represented at the exhibition,
an appropriation will be needed for the
payment of salaries, and expenses of
commissioners, for the transportation of
goods, and for other purposes in connec
tion with the object io view ; and as Mi-y
next is the time fixed for the opening of
the exhibition, if our citizens arc lo have
the advantage of the international com
petition for the trade of the ether nations,
the necessity of immediate action is ap
parent. To enable the United States to
co-operate in the International Exhibi
tion which was held at Vienna in 1873,
Congress then passed ar joint resolution
making an appropriation ol $200,000,
and authorizing the president to appoint
a certain number of practical nrtisaus
and scientific men, who should attend the
exhibition aud report the proceedings
and observations to him. Provisions
was alto made for the appointment of a
number of honorary commissioners. 1
have felt that prompt action by Congress
in accepting the invitation of the Govs
eminent of France-is of so much interest
to the people of this country, and so
suitable to the cordial relations between
the Governments of the two countries,
that the subject might properly bs pre
sented for attention at your present ses
TUB ISTEBKATtOKAL rBISOSC COSGSKS8.
The Government of Sweden and Nor
way has addressed an official invitation
to this Government to take part in the
International Prison Congress to be held
at Stockholm next year. The problem
which the Congress is proposed to study,
how to diminish crime, is one in which
all civilized nations have an interest in
common, and the Congress of Stockholm
seems likely lo prove the most important
convention ever held for the study of this
grave question. Under authority of a
joint resolution of Congress, approved
February 16, 1875, a commissioner was
appointed by my predecessor to represent
the United States upon that occasion,
and the present Congress having been at
the earnest desire of the Swedish Gov
ernment postponed uulil 1878, his com
mission was renewed by me. An appro
priation of $8,000 was made on the sua.
dry civil service act of 1875 to meet the
expense of the commissioner. I recom
mend the appropriation of that sum for
the same purpose, the former appropria
tion having beea covered into the Treas
ury, and being no longer available for the
purpose without further action by Con
gress. The subject is brought to your
attention at this time, in view of circum
stances which render it highly desirable
that the commissioner should proceed to
the discharge of his important duties
As the several aots of Congress pro
viding for detailed reports front the dif
ferent departments of the Government
require their submission at the beginning
of this regular annual session, I defer
until that time any further reference to
subjects of public interest.

A pastor of a church in one of our

felt that the bride waa running an awful
risk. Young man of bad habits and fast
tendencies never marry girls of their own
sort, but demand a wife above suspicion.
So, pure, sweet women, kept from the
touch of eril through the years of their
girlhood, give themselves, with all their
costly dower of womanhood, into the
keeping of men who, io base associations
bare learned to under-value all that be
longs to them, and then find no repent
ance in the sad after years. There is but
one way out of this that I can see, and
that is for you ths young women of the
country to require in associations and
marriage, purity for purity, sobriety for
sobriety, and honor for honor. There ia
no reason why the young men of this
Christian land should not be just as vir

ciety and lov be the pries they are forced
to pay for vice, they will not pay it. I

women are not capable of this high
standard for themselves-or others, but I
