THE OLD BOSTON-ROCKER.
BY JOSEPHINE POLLARD.
How slight are the things that awaken
Our thought of the dajs that are o'er!
How slender the thread we have taken.
To guide oh by memory's shore !
Where the billows are tenderly bringing,
The shells of old joys to our leet.
And the sea Is forevermor singing.
The echoes of songs that were sweet !
In the old Boston-rocker I ntstle.
As cozy as cozy can be.
And sail in a fairy-like vessel.
Afar on a Lethean sea.
The scenes of the past become clearer.
Asscenes oi tne present aeian.
And my loved ones draw nearer and nearer,
Aud joy has control of my heart.
The many glad songs, and the folly.
The frolic, and full I recall :'
For everv one had lo be jolly.
Who visited Liberty Hall.
No matter what threatened the morrow.
No matter how cloudy the day.
We gave the cold-shoulder to sorrow.
Aud iaugneu 111 iorcuouiug away.
Old chair! If these relics, that ever
The heart's dearest treasures outlast, '
Had keeeh. It would lie thy. indeavor
To tell us a tale of the past!

Not only I hey rest, and refresh us.
But whisper aiise to me uearu
Thine arms are outstretched to embrace me,
When wearv. I seek tliv reitose.
On the breast of a lather they place me,

and dollars civen to him by the citi
zens of New Yotk before ho became
President, line of the charges
against the President ia that this St
Louis farm was a present to him.
The rest of the ore hundred thousand
dollars referred to was used in pay
ing cfl tbe mortgage on his house lo
Washington, now owned by
Gen. Sherman, and in purchasing and
furnishing bis house at Hong Branch,
which he is charged with receiving
as a present from Mr. Murphy that
being anothf r of the numberless lab
rlcations set afloat by the Sun about
the President, and repeated eagerly
by journals opposed to him. Aota

given to Gen. Grant since he lecame
During the war the President

to refer to such matters, but since

railroad stock, which he still owns,
and which pays a moderate dividend.
He was civen, while a General in the
Army, a houee ia Philadelphia, which
he rents for about two thousand dol
lars a year.
Another statement of the Eagle ia
that "the Sum. has printed repeatedly,
uncontradicted from any quarter, a
list of twenty-five or more relatives
whom Grant has appointed to oince
under himself.' We hope that tbe
day will come when honorable jour
nalists will be ashamed to assert that
anything is true of Geo. Grant be
cause the Sun says it is true. The
list in qnesfion ha been '""tra
dieted ; it is false in every p&r.icular;
and we will print it at the close of
this article, with comments iwhich
prove it to be false The Prea jlejit'a

The charge that President Grant
quarrels with Sumner and is friendly
with JNye, :, ana that he absents
.irtetll frcm Washington during
Summer, we leave people to form
tbeir own cpinicts about. The ac
cuHHtic n ibat eomebedy very near to
the rrteulf ntitl pertcn was engaged
in the ''gold gambling affair ot Fiek
and Gould, ia utterly refnted by Jay
Gould's own evidence, es published
in the ctllcial report of the investiga
tion, by tho Foity fiist Congress
The Prtsident himself gave the order
to sell gold on the infamous "Black
Friday" that order which brought
the conspiracy to an end. The only
man who ever attempted to drsg
den. irant s name into tbe trans
actienwas James Fitk, Jr. a nolo
ricus thiif end swindler. Is there
any rcf pectabe man cr women in this
country who would suffer Lis or her
estimation of a friend's character to
be lcwercd by anything James Fisk
Jr., m ght Bay ? And yet the 1 reel
dent ot tho United States is to be
condemned by paitr papers, on the
evidence of a man who has commit
ted tfto worst kind ol c flenses against
the law, and who, to the eternal dis
grace of the Judges who administer
nil at law, is still revelling In bis
stolen wealth, instead of breaking
etoce in Sing sing.
As to the objections ot Gen. Grant'i
course on public -flairs, we do not
profess to answer thtm now; we
merely repeat cur own opinion, that
in the main his policy is a sound.
wise, and beneficial one. A man of
Inurer private life than Gen. Grant
Inever occupied the Presidential chair,
Is it just is it worthy of the i'resi
dent's position, or of this great na
tion that be should be called to
account at any moment by every dis
appointed cfiice-seeker who chooses
to invent a new slander against him t
We bare replied to these charges
because, by constant repetition, they
might have imposed npon credulous
mmds. Tbe more thoroughly tbey
are sifted, the more shamelully false
and malicious they will appear. We
believe that the majority of the peo
pie look upon these calumnies with
indignation. They have made tbons
anda of friends for the President
among that quiet and thoughtful
of the community which rarely
busies itself actively in pc litics, but
which admires pluck and silence in
public men, which hates to see injus
tice done, and which despises the
cowards who try t undermine i
public reputation by defaming pri
vate character. Whatever njected
clfice-seekers, like the calumniators
of the Sun, may do or say, the great
majority of the American people are
lovers of fair play ; they detest slan
derers and liars; and they will honor
Gen. Grant all the more because he
goes on steadfastly doing their work,
in disregard or the insults ana taunts
of men who hate bim becauso he will
not yield to their demands.
We now eubjon the so called list
of '-the President a relatives," pub
lished almost daily by the Sun. It
will still be published, doubtlese, not
withstanding the proofs given below
its falsity. But at any rate, the
man who does so publish it will stand

Health and Morals of London.
"Country folks,'' the London Spec
tator remarks, "believe London to be
sink of malaria and iniquity.' As
tbe first, it is "one of the health
iest tewns on the world, and, but
one or two districts, might be the
healthiest in England." So, too, in
regard to criminality, contrary to the
general belief, figures show that its
habitual and unsuspected criminals
as 1 in 784, while in such towns
Bath, Leamington, Scarborough,
Ramstage the proportion is 1 in
and, in what are classed as ag
ricultural towns, it is 1 in 433. In
eastern, midland, and southern
counties, the number of criminals is
usually twicr, and occasionally four
times as great as in London. Tbe
rural villages are usually consid
ered tbe homes of ideal purity and
piety, yet in comparison with them,
London is twice as innocent, twice as
healthy, and about 400 times as char
itable. This superiority in alms
giving seems to indicate a corre
sponding extent of paupjrism, but
benevolence, it is to be remembered,
more thoroughly systemized in
London, while in the country there
may be a great deal of want and suf
fering with very inadequate relief.
It appears that the ancients were
no means deficent in tbe art of
dentistry, but on tbe contrary it seems
be one of tbe oldest of arts. Cas-
selius was a dentist in the reign of the
Roman tnnnsvirs, and gold was nsed
filling the teeth. But nearly 500
C. gold was thus nsed, and gold
wire was employed to bold artificial
teeth in position, and it does not seem
then to have been a new art, A frag
ment of the tenth of the Roman tables.
B. O, has reference to prevent
the burial of any gold with the dead
except mat bound around the teeth.
Herodotus declares that the Egyp
tians bsd a knowledge of the diseases

As it had been arranged that Mrs.

of considerable value. Among other
