LETTERS OF A NOMAD.
YELLOW SPRINGS, O., September 6.
W? Deab Yukbh: The days of my rjomndlc
lifo are, ueur! numbered, Tho adventures
of a Bedouin in search of a cool shade or a
refreshing wave, aro pleasant onougb, but
they lose their churm when they ceaso to bo
exceptional. .. I amiitite sure that my friends
who live by seashores and In cool aud.lovely
groves do hot relish them as much as an oc
casional visiter who presses out from hot
streets and hard work. Have you not heard
A( i,A .'.l... : .u. i.
ui ivi auidiuivu nuv, mjunxu ,iunii ifo was
not a turtle, iu which enso ho could not cat
that delicious viands I who go out into tho
couufay Occnsionaily, find there apure .oo
staey with each visit; but to my friend Agri
cola it is quite a bumdruia and comimin-
pluco ailair.. So now, as won as I havo loft
my parting card on several old oak trees who
have befriended me, I shall return to the
dear old Queen of tho West with as keen a
delight as I left amid tho powder-storms of
the glorious but ear-splitting Fourth.
Rut thero is ono realm into which I have,
been wandcrinc a little this vacation, from
which I have intended nil along to make
some report; I mean" the realm of books.
There is more connection between the book
of nature and tho printed book, than many
suppose; many volumes have I mot in which
trees wave and waters lall and buds nag.
nnd real men and women move. "
There is s story of an Oriental Saltan who.
having reared a magnificent palaco, desired to
nave an equally grand norary. Ho issued a
proclamation that all should bring bim the vol
umes they wished to" tell, and which they
should doom fitting for a King. Thirty camel
loads soon stood at his door. The Sultan ex
amined them nnd sent away all the camels with
their loads except three. These he examined
more carefully, tnd sent off two of them.
From the remaining camel load he solected one
hundred volumes; of these, on careful Inspec
tion, ho burnt nine-sis. The four volumos re
tained were respectively on science, philoso
phy, poetry ; and romance, . religion. , After
reading these he burnt them also, and caused
to he embroidered in gold, framed and hang
up in the room, provided for' the library the
following: :
"Tub Kssksoe op rAr.k Rkauino." Of all
Sciocce, cause and effect;, of all Philosophy,
doubt; of all poetry and roinnnoe, to love Na
ture within or without; of all religion, to
seek truth and obey it." " . . j
A pretty fair summing up. And yet the
Saltan was not as wiso one way as he was the
othor.l We onn not livo mentally anymore than
physically on essence. Suppose some chemist
had gone to tho Sultan's tablo about dinner
time and changed his vegetables into tbeir
essence?; n slimy stream nf water running over
somo mineral dust would have streamed over
the table. Literature does, indeod, distribute
through its myriad forms only a few leading
ideas, but still, eo that these forms he natural
and beautiful, they are all' needed; for each
separate miud or temperament needs a sow
slatctnont of the old thought adapted to it..
This year has been thus far (uite generous
in its literary gifts. There has been a good
sign too in the faqt, that it has not given so
many as many former years, quality and quan
tity not always going together. Who has not
observed that tho masses of trash which used
to load the counters have become blntet that
the "Ensanguined Night Uown," the "Blood
stained Carving-knifo," the "Mystery of tha
flaunlpd tUogpen," cannot even, get ioto their
saffron aprons, but must illuminate the sheets
for which tho Hon., Mr. Erorlasting and the
Rev. Mr Bigbug, write occasionally, but whioh
uro. the onty paperttor which Dobbs, Jenkins
and A. B. ka., X. Y. Z. Judkins, write 1 We
now find that suoh novels-as "Dootor Tbnrne,
John Halifax, Charles Anchester, Adam Bede,"
io., are so popular that several copies are is
sued from the libraries und never returned,
and the olerks at the bookstores say blandly,
-'we are just out, sir, have you one ioa few
day el"
In novels this ' year has been quite rich.
Even that old sinner, Bulwer, has got a little
closor to the world's pulses, and felt that to
mako it throb onoe beneath bis toucb, he must
stop that word sentimentaliem, of whioh be
is more guilty than any man living, and write
something truo to nature. "What Will He Do
with It," is a book of far mora truth and nature
than he has ever given us. I say mors, for
evon in this he shows his vicious literary habits,
and a;nnjt keep the foot-lights from flaring on
one'b . . Hiith art will have things real; low
art will have things theatrical will have little
girls rush between contending parties, and jjoiiir-
ij tne insuiters of .those they love, ana young
men call eaoh other Limllo Moi, if they are
named Lionel. Very much better is "Adam
Bedo," book in whioh there is ho attitudin
izing, and where the attitudes aro, conse
quently, beautiful and true. Where will me
find ua' a wittier oharacter than Mrs.-Poyser,
whom a .oonoeited fellow, reminds "of a cock
who thought the sun was rising up to hear him
crow;" who where poopfo mourn so much, for
dead folks as to neglect living ;onea "can't
see the uieof watering last year's crop;", who
has observed. that "tbem as are not wanted in
this world, are just the ones as are not wanted
in the nest." Better than Word worth's lines,
('Tho L'ood die first," ij.l In this book there
is the finest olorical character wo have ever met
with in a bouk.. Very different Indeed is "The
Bertrams," by Anthony Trollops, to whose
terserano Humorous nets we are already in
debte'd for "Dr. Thorne.'" "Dr. Thome" is a
better book than the present, for "The Ber-
trams".ho9 been: spoiled by the introduction of
the author s observations in tbo East, wmch
should have been put in a separate volume.
But after yon have- trundled oven that part,
the book goes on to develop some of the most
Interssling nnd drSmatio scenes of emotional
lifo which it has been our lot to read. Both
of the works, "Adam Bedo". and "The Bor
trams," d.i.lier from the normal novel, which
thinks it tcrriblo io'loave in the last chapter
a single shadow unelVaced, a single roguo
unpuiiieried, a single virtue unrewarded,
In which regnrd tlio normal, or avorage
novel, is untrue to nature and met. "How,"
asks hugene cue, "can virtue be so repre
sented as anything but a good speculation?"
In real life the rascals are not always ex-
posed, nor the virtues rowarded, otherwise"
than s yvi'tue is it .own roward., nia is
liko'any othof picture 'rnnde of light -hnd
shades; and .if the shades are taken away,
vou have white' inures. On' a,' white back
ground. Artistically speaking, many of the
plotji of ntvela bear the same relation to real
lifu 'that the Chinese pictures one sees ou
plates do to wmtridsre a landscapes.
But I find that my . emnmor wanderings
amonir books Davo oecn a iittio beyond tne
limits of one so I will conclude them

Preliminary Sketch of the Early Methodist
Appointments on Mad River
Circuit, and at Dayton.
Tho first time that Mad River Circuit was
provided for with Methodist preachers, was
when tho Wtsteru Conferenco met in Scott
County, Ky., October 2, 1805. Then there
were but seven hundred ond fifty members
in tho settlements on the two Miumi River?,
and about the mouth of Mad River, over all
of which, aa well as thoso ou the Scioto, Mus
kingum end .Kanawha, in Virginia, Rev.
William Burke waa ProsidiDg Elder. John
Meek and Abraham Amos woro that year
traveling prenchers on the Miami and Mad
Jiivcrs. In 1800, Amos was assiirncd to (iuv-
anjlotte, and Meek to the Hocking settle
ments, and John Thompson was tho first
preacher allotted diroctly to tho Mad River
settlement. .This event marks the growth of
the settlement, and of tho success in tho wil
derness of the "new dispensation."
1807 Adjet MeOuiro and Isaac Quinn.
Iu this year the "Western Conference was held
at Chillicothe.
1808 The Mad River labor had increased.
The appointments wero T, Milligan, J. Da
visson and W. Mitchell.
1809 Just fifty j'ears auo tho Ohio Dis
trict vas divided into Miami District, John
Bale Presiding Elder; and Muskingum Dis
trict, James Quinn Presiding Elder.
The laborers on tho Mad Rivor Circuit
were Hesekiah! . Shaw, William Youne and
Saul Ilenklo. Tho whole membership of
the circuit half a century ago was but eight
hundred and twenty-six; iu tho wholo State
but seven thousand.
The first regular appointments to Cincinnati
were in this year William Houston and
John Sinclair. 1810 Saul Henkleand Hootor
Sandford. 1811 Solomon Langdon was
Presiding Elder of Miami Distriot, and the
only preacher at Mad River was John Cling
man other oircuils having been formed in the
neighborhood. 1812, Mad River and Xenia
eomprebendod one circuit John Collins and
M.080S liuine preaohers. This year tho Ohio
Conforence was , formed meeting at Chilli
cothe Ootober 1, 1812. A Soioto Distriot was
formed James Quinn Presiding Elder.
This sketch will be oontinuod to-morrow.
Tho William Younir, above referred to. was a
young man born ia Washington County, Va.,
wno entered mo travoiing eonnootion In LSOB,
at tho conference at Liberty Hall, in Tennessee.
He is renorled to have never traveled a cir-
oult" without revivals; but iq the winter of
1811, while riding along the banks of the Ohio
Kiver, between (Jinoinnatl and North Bend, he
caught a cold, whieh affected his previously in
jured lungs, lie died of consumption, July 20,
lbl2, under the following interesting circum
stances. Three days before his death ho roda
half a mile to a sowly laid out camp-ground,
where the people bad been adjusting theirtentc,
and wore waiting the service. lie viewed the
tents, surveyed tho stand, looked around on
the people, and hurst into tears. Turning; his
horse, he uttered thoso words: "I am done
with those things now. I shall be at oamp
meeling no morel" His prophetie words
became history. He died before the meeting
closed.
Tub DivoncE Qukbtios. Our. lawvors.says
an Indiana paper, do not think that the de
cision of tbe New York Supreme Court, declar
ing a divorce granted in this Stale to parties
coming from that, on other grounds than
adultery, "inoperative and void," good law.
i no constitution nt inn United states, artiola
IV, section I, Biiys.tbat full faith and credit
shall be given in each State to the public nM,
retords and judicial proceedings of ovory otber
State. A decree of divorce is o "judicial pro
ceeding," end it is difficult to see how it oan
be set aside by the riew York tribunal, If a
citizen of New York procures a divorce in In
diana and marries a second limn, he is liable
in New. York to an action for bigamy. '" If he
obeys tbe Now York law, whieh declares his
divoroe .inoperative and void, and assumes
married relations with his former wife, he is
liable in Indiana to action for adultery. Per
haps the dilemma in whioh he might be placed
is a just punishment for the offense of getting
the divnroo In the first instance, but the opera
tion of the law In his case would bo funny in
the extreme.
Bears in Viboisu. Tho bears aro very
troublesome in Roanoko County, Va., this
season, and havo committed great depreda
tions on the corn, for which the farmers
havo turned out gunning for them. A let
ter says:
Three or four havo been killed on Brad-
ahaw's Creek, within the last two weeks, and
on last Saturday three were killed aboutthreo
miles from Lalayctto; near Princo s, on the
North Fork. ' W. C. Waskoy, Dsr., shot a
very largo ono this morning, making the
number killed : seven or eight during the
space of three weeks, i 8o frequoatly are they
seen, and so much excited has the noighbor-
Jiood become in their anxiety to capturo
them, that there is scarcely a day passes
without somo party Doing oui m pursuit ot
them.
Tub AprEABAScB of a Cvcloxe. Au officer
on board an English ship, describing a
cyclone in the Arabian Sea, says:
There seemed somothiug inexplicably
strange in the appearance of nature. Heavy
masses of cloud tumbled and rolled about in
dire confusion, a calm fell suddenly, and the
air became thick and heavy, causing a dif
ficulty in respiration. The sea, imitating
the clouds, rose in crested masses. The ship
became inundated with numbers of beauti
ful butter Hies, and many species of sea birds
crowded tbo deck, and lay with drooping
wing, complcteljjr exhausted; some even en-
TKi.EfiRAPH to thr Pacii'io. Tho magnetic
telegraph has been extended to Atchison , on
the Missouri River, and is still on its way
westward. From tho racitic sido the work
is extended to Salt Lake City. It will prob
ably not be very long before the two will bo
made to unite, and givo a com pie to tclo
graphio connection from the Atlantic to tho
Pacific.
A Caution Wo would caution parents and
guardians against allowing tbeir children to
oat the kernel of poaoh seeds. As most house
keepers are now preserving this excellent fruit,
the seeds often fall into the hands of children,
who break them and eat the kernels, not know
ing that they eontain a quantity of the most
deadly of all known poisons prusaio acid.
Scbiptubal Emkndatios. The clerk of an
English church, who bad to read the first les
son in the publio services, always used to make
a hash of Shadraoh, Meshaoh and Abednego;
and as the names are twelve times repeated in
the third chapter of Daniel, aftor getting
through with them tbe first time, be aftorward
styled them tbe "aforesaid gentlemen."
Imports of Dbt Goosa. The imports of
foreign dry goods at the port of New York, for
the last month, are a little over fifteen million
dollars, boing only three-quarters of a million
below the large total noted in July, and very
considerably in excess of the corresponding
total for either of the previous three years.
Yankee in Brooklyn has invented
machine which changes monoy. It is used by
railroad oondnotori, who receive and give

Fast Horses—Biography of Princess,
the Rival of Flora Temple.
Tha "California mare" Princoss was raised
by a Mr. Billings, of Claromont, New Hamp
shire, and is at this time thirteen years old.
She was sold about three years ago to Mr.
Gage, one of tho proprietors of theTremont
House, Chicago, lor six hundred dollars. Up
to tho time bIio went to Chicago she had a
mixed guit, pacing, "siiigle-foo'ting," and
sometimes trotting. Mr. GBge soon after
sold her to another party, who put her on the
trotting turf, where she contended with some
of the fastest horses in that region.
It is said that she dilplsycd groat bursts' of
speod occasionally, but .was a bad breaker, and
failed to win much renown. In a raoe with
Roindocr, the animal that contended with Flora
Templo lust fall, at Chicago, Princess trotted
the last half mile, in one of her heats In 1:10
hiving fallen a distance behind at the ball-mile
polo. She was takon to New Orleans, and
trotted a raoe or two thero, beating Tom Mur
ray, two-mile heats, ia 5:12. She was then
taken to California, whore, her present owner,
Mr. Teakle, pnrohased her for $5,000. She
trotted several raoos in California, the liift two
being tho ten-mile races which made her
famous.
ibese raoes were trotted last March, if we
remember aright one ten miles in harness, and
the next day another ten miles to' wagon,
against Qlencoe Chief, a horse well known in
San Francisco, who was beaten in the first raoe
ia 29.-10K, and tho second in 29:16. These
rwo races netted tho owner $3S,000,'and bo
was immediately offered $1 0,000 for his mare,
but dcolined to sell her. Princess is a' dark
buy, deepened to black on the hocks, with near1
bind footwhito. She was sired by a Morgan
stallion, and her dam is a thorough-bred (run
ning stock) mare. ,,Sho has improved much in
her style of trotting within a year or two past,
but she still lacks the stoadiness and honesty
of Flora Temple. Her speed in making up a
gap after one of her breaks is said to bo some
thing wonderful to behold.
a
Bhownlow o ADiiitCATi Subject. "Proton
low" has been visiting the Virginia Springs,
and gets off the following, in tt rocont editorial
letter to his paper: . . ,
Aftor tea, I was led to enter the ball-room,
from hearing a superior female voioo, as on ac
companiment to the band playing "Sweet
Homo." A perfect stranger, and mere looker
on, I quietly seated myself on a lounge. Soon
the ladies and' gentlemen came in, two and
two, and never did the highlands of Scotland,
the green hills of Switzerland, or the rural dis
tricts of Germany, exhibit such dancers I Their
jeweled necks, and- ears, and fingers, and daz
zling brocades, each said to the other, "none of
your dresses cost liko mino." The company
in the ball-room was small and ratbor select, a
few of us, passengers, intruding. They com
menced waltzing hugging each other olose
they flew round upon a polished floor. The
hoops would fly up the skirts exhibited them
selves tbe an.'f' showed for themeelvos. , I
caa't trust myselt any further on this subjeotl
' Editokial Life. But few readers ever
think of the labor and care devolving upon an
editor, one who really feels his responsibility.
Captnin Marryatt says :
I know bow a periodical will wear down
one' 6 existence. In itself, it appears nothing;
the labor is not manifest; noris it in tbe labor;
it is the continual attention it requiros. Your
life becomes, us it were, the publication. Ono
day's paper is no sooner corrected and printed,
than on oomos another. It is the stone of
Sisyphus, and endless repotitlon of toil and
constant weight upon tbe intellect and spirits,
and demanding all the exertion of your facul
ties, at the same time you are compelled to tbe
severest drudgery. To write for a papor is
very well, but to edit ono is to condemn your
self to slavery. .
. Death Cabbed by Vanitv. A French paper
relates tbe case of a young lady in Lyons, who
was engaged to bo married, and was predis
posed to eorpulenoy, Some of ber young
friends ridiculed her stout figure, &o.,' which
at the time only oxoited her laughter. Her
health subsequently declined, and she died
rather suddenly. As there was no apparent
oause for such aquiok death, the account states,
"with grief, the parents resigned themselves to
having a post-mortem examination. Tboy
then found what they had never before sus
peoted: she was burned up by acids, which she
had taken unknown to them, to stop the grow
ing fatness, whioh reduced her to uejpair.
Tbe young girl died Ihe victim of ridiouloos
vanity." :
"Tub Comino Man." In the imagination
of ovory young lady, the oomiog man is a
handiome yoang officer with parly teeth, eoral
lips, rosy cheeks, curly hair,; blue eyes and
black mustache, who is dying desperately in
love with .her, and is coming some day on a
prancing gray horse with a long flowing tail,
to propose to ber. Money is no object, for tbe
thought of money does not vulgarly intrude
into the ycung lady's imagination in oonneo
tion with ber Coming Man, only he must be
beautifully dressod, and havo a handsomo
riding-whip, and gingling spurs, and neatly
rolled whiskers, as tight as watch-springs.
Alas I how many thousands are still waiting
impatiently, and yet confidently, for the ad
vent of the Coming Man .'W7i.
Masonry ahd the C'.eroy. The Rev. Geo.
S. Chase, pastor of the Baptist church in
Warren, Rhode Island, writes a letter ex
plaining his reasons for -refusing hia profes
sional services at. funerals whero Masonic
ceremonies aro. employed. He., says: "X
could not, coimelGntly xcilh iiy oncutions, unite
milk Jfliom'o cwemoaiea oner ,f7ie dead; that,
however it might appear to others, whether
Masons or not, for mj'Belf to join in such
ceremonies ns Christian ceromonics would be
next to, if not actually,, a sacrilegious ser
vice; and that for the same reason, I should
decline, if Afasonic rites trim inriited upon, even
tliouL'h the person were a member of tho
church tf which I am pastor."

Chanoe or Profession. At tho preacher's
meeting at Nashville, Tens., two weeks ago,
Kev. P. iiarth. tne Herman missionary, speak
ing of the somber present, stated that when
Dr. Parsons was a stage actor, he ( Birth) and
two of his brothers were members of the orches
