THE "BEAUTIFUL SHOW."
Stand here by my aide and tarn, I pray,
On tbe lake below thy gentle eyes ;
The clouds hang over it, heavy and gray,
And dark and silent the water lies ;
And out of that frozen mist tbe snow
In wavering flakes begin to flow.
Flake after flake
They sink in the dark and silent lake.
Lo, sifted tbroogh the wlndi that blow,
Down comes tbe soft and silent snow,
White petals from the flowers that grow
In the cold atmosphere.
These starry blossoms, pure and white,
Softly falling, falling through tbe night,
Have draped the woods and mere.
Oeorgt Jf. Munjay.
Through the sharp air a flaky torrent files
Mocks the slow sight, and bides the gloomy
The fleecy clouds theircbilly blosiomsbare,
And shed their substance on Ihe floating
Announced by all tbe trumpets of the sky,
Arrive? tbe snow, anil, driving o'er the
Seems nowhere to alight; the wbited air
Hides hills and woods, the river, and the
And veils the farmhoufe at tbegardeu's end.
How beautiful it a, falling so silently,
all day long, all night lOng, on tbe moun
tains, on tbe meadow, on tbe tools of tbe
living, on the graves of the dead.
Out of the bosom of tbe air,
Out of the cloud-folds of licr garments
Over the woodlands brottti and bare,
Silent, and soft ami slow
Descends tbe snow.
Accumulating Evidence of a Deeply Plan
Washington, Novcmbtr 14, ls83.
Kvcry day brings fresh evidence from Vir
ginia to prove that the outrages of the re
cent election, including the massacre at
Danville, were deliberately planned, and ai
deliberately executed. It is now known
that two other assassinations were intend
ed: One at Danville, and another to include
an attack on a colored meeting at Manches
ter, opposite Hiciimond. In tlio first, the
victim escaped by mere accident, the other,
by the unexpected postponement of the ap
pointed meeting. The scheme for this riot
was exposed by persons in another town
entering newspapet offices and inquiring if
any dispatches had been received about the
attack on the Manchester meeting.
There were three distinct branches of tbe
Danville affair. As tbe first move, false and
most inflammatory circulars were prepared
and sent throughout the State, to arouse
feelings that would precipitate a riot, or
which would be raised to a white heat by
the news of one. Next came the massacre,
for which the excuse was made, a numerous
company of white ruffians being ready to
open lire the moment one of their number
should force a disturbance. Highly exag
gerated account!, I n which the negroes were
represented as attacking the whites, and the
imminent danger of negro supremacy were
set forth In a manner well calculated to fire
the Southern heart. Immense editions of
these papers were printed, and those iu the
general plot were busy Sunday and Monday
in flooding the State with them. Tuesday
came, and as there bad been no time to
counteract the false stories, their influence
caused active intimidation throughout the
State, and secured tbo Democratic success.
The who!a affair was simply a desperate
schcniii of tbo Democrats to proven tan bon
est vote. The occurrence lias a double slg'
nificance, arising from tbe fact that hereto
fore Virginia has been, since the reconstruc
tiou measures were passed, a mot orderly
State. In the days of tliehu-Klux, thcclan
never flourished here. Tbo elections have
been, in the maiu, free and fair. The sud
den and radical change from this general
respect for law, which there is now abun
dant reason for believing has taken place,
is due to a deliberate determination on the
part ol the Democracy o! Virginia lo pre
vent that State lrom passing from their con
trol through a fair election. The evidence
is conclusive that this matter has received,
and is now receh ing, general attention from
the Democrats of the South. The decision
has been reached, at least in Virginia and
Mississippi, to save their party by whatever
degree of intimidation and actual force that
may be needed to accomplish it. The argu
ment Is that pelf-preservation is the right of
every community, aud a right that can be
properly used to prevent negro advancement
in political affairs, and, therefore, cither
through preventing llicui from voting, or
preventing the counting of their ballot., the
South shall be saved for wblto Democrats.
This plau has been made known here by
citizens of tbe South, whose standing can
not be anywhere questioned. It Is the es
sence of tbe new Democratic departure to
maintain a solid South for 1SSI.
To expose these things now is not to re
vive the cry of the bloody shirt, but simply
to make known the line of Democratic ac
tion which has been determined upon at the
South lorthc coming presidential campaign.
The Sat tonal Iitpuhlican is giving much at
tention to collecting the facts of the late
Virginia election. It has a letter to-day
from Danville, from which it appears the

it won at Danville on the 3d iust., and the
perpetrators of the atrocity ol that day ap
pear to be afraid to relax the iron grip they
hold, test those whowerc witnesses shall be
free to speak out. Every man uot owned
by the llourbons is watched, and his life
would not bo worth a pin,;ll he should be
suspected of sending out for publication
any account of the awful tragedy. My ad
vices are most reliable, and arc derived from
sources that arc ccrtiin to have the best in
formation. Danville is in Pittsylvania coun
ty. Chatham, in the same county, is twelve
miles distant. The following are extracts
lrom a private letter from that place, dated
November 10th :
Tbe writer says of Mr. Sims, tbe Liberal
candidate for tbe State scnato : "Sims' es
cape from tbe Danville brigands and ruffians
was almost miraculous. Owing to his deaf
ness he did not, and docs not now, appre
ciate tho danger he was In. He was saved
partly by accident, and partly by the pru
dence of his friends. Ills coffin had been
made and paid for, and the cut-throats were
guarding all passages to and from tbe city.
Fortunately, the room he occupied was in a
building, the front entrance to which was
up an open flight of steps not five yards from
the end of a long, dark, narrow alley. This,
with the help of two friends, who furnished
him with assistance, enabled him to leave
the city in safety. The measure was inau
gurated In accordance with a preconcerted
programme, and was fomented by cowardly
villains. A complete reign of terror has
ruled, and now rules, in Danville and Pitt
sylvania county, where, if you are In no
danger of being shot, you are in danger; of
being Insulted by a mob without the power
of resenting it, and to a sensitive man one
is as bad as the other."
A private letter from another gentleman,
written at the same place, says :
"At the three precincts of Dativille.Xoith
Danville and New Design, where we were
entitled to 2,000 votes, we only got ST. New
Design is only three miles from Danville.
We had mide heavy gains from the white
people, up to the Danville massacre, but
lost It all by that means. The votes we got
and the rotes were entitled to would have
elected our whole ticket. The enemy Knew
onr strength, but, unfortunately, they knew
our weaknes, and hence the Danville riot.
Sims made no Incendiary speech. He sim
ply proved the falsity of the Danville circu
lar, and did it in the presence of many of
the signers, whoa he asked it It was uot
cowardly to sanction such lies. lam satis

no doubt, have before it an array ol tuti
mony concerning the Danville massacre,
which will when made a part or tbe public
records, show the world the full extent of
this monumental crime."
The public will know from the facts above
recited what vaine to give a mock investi
gation, under tbe direction of the Bour
bons themselves. A gentleman who was at
Danville on Friday last says that the condi
tion there is volcanic, and that while all is
quiet, the most moderate of the Bourbons
predict that if the wounded white man (Hol
land) dies, his death would be the signal for
an outbreak against tbe negroes more de
structive than that of tbe 3d. Tbe quiet is
only external, and so Inflamed is the condi
tion ot affairs that Col. Baulston, tbe Unit
ed States collector of Internal revenue, is
virtually a prisoner at his own house. The
business or his office Is obstructed by the
state of insurrection which has existed ever
since the massacre.
In other words, the United States govern
ment is, through a business agent, as com
pletely bulldozed as are tbe Negroes them
selves. Col. Itaulston was a Federal officer
In the late war, and is a quiet, courageous
and prudent man. It is believed that noth
ing but the presence of United States troops
can make Danville or Pittsylvania county a
place of safety for any who have dared to
dispute Bourbon opinions or testify to Bour
bon methods. The rcigu of terror which
now prevails is caused by tbe desperate 11 e-
cesiilies of the occasion. The feeling
throughout tbe State of Virginia is intense.
On tbe other hand, the lteadjusters arc de
termined on having tho world know tbe
truth concerning tbe recent campaign.
They say that the Bourbons were beaten,
up to tbe 26th of October. That the knowl
edge of this made tbcm desperate, and de
cided tbcm upon tbe execution of the plan
ol Intimidation and violence, which they
had premeditated from Hie early summer, it
it should seem to them necessary. They say
that men who felt hopeful of succesi by or
dinary means, would not have exhibited thu
frenzied rage which characterized the oppo
sition during tbe last two weeks of the cam
paign. And that the wholesale arming of
themselves, and the ostentatious display
they made of tbe fact of such arming, was
an admission of defeat as matters then
On the other band, the Bourbons scemdc
tcrniined to keep up a state of feeling which
will be a menace to any of the Ueailjuster'
white or black witnesses who shall ilaro to
make any statements of the crimes commit
ted ror their party. It is Impossible to get
any thing from Danville on tbo Kcailjutcr
side by means of any direct mail communi
cation. It may bo that the postofficc is un
der the surveillance of the mob, and that
only such letters are allowed to lie scut or
received as arc addressed to men known to
be in sympathy with the perpetrators of the
This sifting process could go on without
any interference with the postmaster, by
guarding tbo approach to the office, and ex
amining all who go iu and out. At any rale,
it is certain that not in a state of war could
the enemy's line be drawn more distinctly
than that which now separates Danville
from the outside world. The sooner the
people of tbe United States and tbeir gov
ernment can be made to understand that
Paris under the bloody commune was not
more given over to anarchy and lawlessness
than Is this portion of Virginia, the more
certain will tbe majesty of tbe law here be
able to assert itseir.
"The sooner the people of the country re
alize that the entire Bourbon party of Vir
ginia has been forced by the circumstances
of the case to adopt and defend the Dan
ville mob, which acted as its agent, the ea
sier it will be for them to understand that
the whole State is, to a great extent, sub
jected lo tbe mob spirit. Hat the effort of
the Bourbons to prevent men from furnish-
Ing facts has been a failure. They will suc
ceed in Intimidating tbe negroes from testi
fying, as they did in keeping tbcm from vot
ing, but there are white witnesses they cau't
muzzle. The great tragedy at Danville, and
the lesser ones everywhere, cannot be kept
outol history. Bloody revolutions cannot
be confidential. I have given you in Ibis
all that can now be stated publicly. Von
can rely on it implicitly."
The Washington correspondent of the
Philadelphia Prtti, who was at the county
seat of King George county, below Freder
icksburg, on election day, says :
"The counties of Stafford and King (leorge
comprise a legislative district, represented
at Kichmond by Duff Green, lleadjii-tcr.
Mr. Orccn's majority at the previous elec
tion was over. VM. Nearly one-half of the
voters in the district are Negroes. He bad
many white supporters. For a montli lie
fore the election tbe Bourbons began an ac
tive campaign. The women and children
even engaged in it. Kvcry white Ueailjust
er was made to feel that his social enjoy
ment depended upon bis vote.
"Tbe Negroes in King Ocorge were al
most a unit for tho Kcadj lister candidate.
The Bourbons wcro openly and frankly ar
rayed against the Negro. 'Wlilto ulggi'rs'
was the term contcniptously applied to the
white poopic who voted for 3Ia!ionc' can
didate. The Ncgroc, it was saM. had be
come arrogant anil insolent, as the result of
tbe election of their candidates for two suc
cessive terms. They ruled the county.
Anything to beat them was the watchword,
and undoubtedly thousands of white voters
dissatisfied with Bourbon methods and
mossback rule, voted tbe Democratic ticket
on the single issue of race supremacy.
"Had tbe same excitement tbat prevailed
in the little village of King George Court
House on election day been felt in any of
tbe larger cities of the country, terrible ri
ots would have followed. White men were
out of their beds at 4 o'clock in the morn
ing, to catch tho earliest comers to tbe polls,
and tbe work went on until darkness drove
the people to tbeir homes, with the knowl
edge that Green's msjority in the county
had been reduced to 120 votes."
A letter from a coiresponilent in Lunen
burg says that colored men arc being turn
ed out of employment because they refused
to voto the Bourbon ticket at tbe late elec
tion. The Petersburg Index, in the course of an
argument to show tbat the Danville riot was
not an act of intimidation, practically ad
mits, though without seeming to bo aware
that it is admitting, tbat the whites have de
cided upon a race issue. It says :
"But In Virginia, and other Southern
States, the population is made up of two
races of man, tho members ol which never
have known, and never can know, the same
respect for each other, or feel the confidence
in each other that arc known and felt by
white men for white men. In many places
in Virginia, to-day, the wives and daugh
ters or white men are restrained in tbeir
movements by apprehensions of what might
occur because ol tbe presence everywhere
In the State of tbe colored race.
"Tbe apprehension may often be without
cause, but it is extremely natuial. On tbe
part of the Negro, especially when his ig
norance is fed with tbe false stories that self
ish politicians tell him to secure his vote,
there is a distrust, and often a hatred, or
his white neighbor. Take tbo two races,
in the condition partially described above,
and we have tbe secret of every act or vio
lence connected with a Virginia election for
many years. As men ol each race become
excited with the contest, the feelings which
had slumbered for months are aroused, and
especially in Danville, where there are great
numbers or colored people, a slight cause
leads to violence. Blots like this in Vir

One or the club even went so far as to say

"We, the Beadjusters, protested against

To those who have pinned their faith to
the theory that there Is a decrease of inter
est in the Christian religion the Tacts and fig
tires presented by Prof. Hodge, of Prince
ton Theological Seminary, in an article In
the Xorth American Jlttitw, are rather dis
couraging, Prof. Ilodgo shows that there
has been a steady and rapid increase in all
forms of evangelical religion, while Budd
hism and Hindooistn have failed rapidly,
and even those which arc not classed as or
thodox and evangelical have decreased or
stoodstill rather than increased. And when
It comes to this country, tbe Independent
Almanac for 1SS4 presents statistics to show
tbat there is little danger of the Christian
religion dying out In America ror some time
to come. There are 113,010 churches, not
Including Jews and Mormons, in the United
States, and in tbcm 81,717 ministers serve
17,207,878 communicants. It will be seen
tbat more than one-third ol tbe entire popu
lation or the country arc enrolled as mem
bers or Protestant and Catholic Churches,
and tbe church attendance will more than
doublo this number. Tbe Methoilinta have
the greatest number or churches, 41,271,
but only 24,483 ministers, and 3,91.1,875 com
municants. The Baptists stand next in the
number ol churches, having 37,130, with
20,543 ministers and 3130,530 communicants.
The Boman Catholics have C,2I1 churches.
and 0,510 ministers, but almost double the
number or communicants tbat tbe Baptists
or Methodists have, their number being
G,832,954. Tbe rresbyterians have 11,783
churches, 8,831 ministers, and 980,437 com
municants; tbe Protestant Episcopalians
3,109 churches, 3,6004 ministers, and 351,099
communicants, and the Congregatlonaiisu
3,930 churches, 8,72? ministers, and 387,019
communicants. These are tbe stronger
churches, and they are rapidly Increasing.
There are other Indications of the growth
of Christianity, and one of tbe best is that
halls formerly used by non-religions socie
ties are now held by the Christians, and a
building in Boston erected as'a memorial to
Thomas Paine a few years ago', la now used
as a church.

A Desperate Encounter.
-Col. Allen McLane, who died at Wil
mington, Del., in 1829, at the patriarchal
age of cight-lbree, was distinguished for
bis personal courage, and for bis activity as
a partisan officer. He was long attached to
Major Lee's famous legion of horse. While
the British occupied Philadelphia, McLane
was constantly scouring the upper end or
Bucks and Montgomery counties, to cut off
the scouting parties or tho enemy, and in
tercept their supplies or provisions. Hav
ing agreed for some purpose to rendezvous
near Shocmakertown, Col. McLane ordered
his little bund of troopers to follow at some
distance, aud commanded two or tbcm to
precede tbo main body, but also to keep in
bis rear ; and If they discovered the enemy
to ride up to his side and Inform him or it,
without speaking aloud. While leisurely
approaching tbe place of rendezvous In this
order, in tbe early gray of the morniug,the
two men forgetting their orders, suddenly
called out, 'Colonel, the British!' faced
about, and puttiug spurs to tbeir horses,
were soon out or sight. The colonel, look
ing around, discovered that bo was in tbe
centre of an ambuscade, into which tbe en
emy had silently allowed him to pass with
out observing them. They lined both sides
of tbe road, and bad been stationed there
to pick up any straggling party or Ameri
cans that might chance to pass.
Immediately on finding they were discov
ered, a file ol soldiers rose from the side or
tbe highway, aud fired at the colonel, but
without effect, and as be put spurs to bis
borsc and mounted the roadside into tbe
woods, the other part or the detachment al
so tired. Tbe colonel escaped ; but a shot
striking his horso upon the flank, be dash
ed through the woods, and in a few min
utcs reached a parallel road upon the oppo
site side of tbe lorest. Being familiar with
the country, he feared to turn to the lelt as
tbat course led lo tbe city, and be might be
intercepted by another ambuscade. Turn
ing therefore, to the right, hid frightened
horse carried Mm swiftly beyond the reach
or 'lio-c who bad lired upon him. All at
once, however, on emerging lrom a piece
or woods be observed several British troops
stationed near the roadside, and directly
ahead in sight, a farm house, around which
he saw a whole troop of the enemy's caval
ry drawn up. He dashed by the troops
rear him without being molested. The
farm house was situated at the Intersection
of two loads, presenting but two avenues
by which he could escape. Nothing daunt
ed by the formidable array before him, he
galloped up to the crossroads, on reaching
which, he spurred his horse,turncd sudden
ly to the right, and was soon fairly out of
reach ot tbeir pistols, though as he turned,
he heard them call loudly to surrender or
die! A dozen were Instantly in pursuit;
but in a short time they ail gave up but
two. Colonel Mcliane's horse scared by tbe
wound, and being a chosen animal, kept
ahead for several miles, while his two pur
suers followed with unwearied eagerness.
The pursuit at length waxed so hot, that,
as the colonel's horse stepped outoi a small
brook which crossed the road, bis pursuers
entered it at tbe opposite margin. In as
cending a little bill, the horses ol the three
were greatly exhausted, so much so, tbat
neither could bo urged raster th in a walk.
Occasionally, as one of tho troopers passed
on a little in advance of his companion, tho
colonel slackened bis pace, anxious to be
attacked by ouc ot the two; but no sooner
was his willingness discovered, than the
other fell back to his station. They at
length approached so near, that a conversa
tion took placo between them ; the troopers
calling out, 'surrender you rebel, or we'll
cut you in pieces.' Suddenly ono of tbcm
rode up to the right sido or the colonel, and
without drawing his sword, laid bold of the
colonel's collar. The latter, to use his own
words, 'bad pistols which be knew be could
depend on.' Drawing one from Its holster,
he placed it to the heart or his antagonist,
fired and tumbled him to the ground. In
stantly the other came upon his left, with
bis sword drawn, and also seized tie colon
el by tbe collar of his coat. A fierce and
deadly struggle here ensued, in tho course
of which Col. McLane was desperately
wounded in the back of his left hand, the
sword of his antagonist cutting asunder
the veins and tendon". Seeing a favora
ble opportunity, be drew his other pistol,
and with a steadiness ol purpose, placed It
directly between the eyes or bis adversary,
pulled tbe trigger, and scattered bis brains
ou every side ot tbe road! Fearing tbat
others were In pursuit, be abandoned his
borsc in the highway; and apprehensive
from bis extreme weakness, that he might
die from loss or blood, be crawled into an
adjacent mill-pond, entirely naked, and at
length succeeded In stopping the profuse
flow or blood occasioned by bis wound. In
a short time he had so far recovered as to
be able to join bis comrades."

It is not gold or goods that makes a man
wealthy. The best wealth is that or the
heart, a loyal conscience, pure affections.
He is the wealthiest who has tbe largest
stock or wisdom, virtue and love, whoso
heart beats with warm sympathy for bis
leilow men, who finds good in nil seasons
In all men. The generous man who pities
tbe unfortuuatc, the poor man who orders
well his life, tho loving man who clings
close to his family and friends, the studious
man who seeks Instruction in all tbings.are
the truly woalthy men.
Who has not mourned over the fact that
his daily avocations oltcn become veils to
bis spiritual nature and keep him from see

tbat tbo avocations arc wrong in them
selves, but they arc so absorbing as to keep
God out of tbeir thoughts. To prevent
this evil, a pious minister once advised his
friends to pause, at least as often as once
In fifteen minutes, and strive, by a brier act
ot faith and prayer, to obtain a conscious
manifestation or Divine Presence. Tbe
value or this advice can only be ascertained
by putting it to the test or practice.
Look not thou on beauty's charming,
Sit thou still v.lien kings are arming.

THE ROYAL KITCHEN AT WINDSOR CAS
TLE. Tbo kitchen is a noble department or
nearly fifty feet in height situated on tbe
north side of tbe castle. And the Christ
mas good cheer requires ample space. As
many as sixty turkeys aro masted ror the
royal table at this season- Tha household
and tho domestic help or course, to con
sume them. Large fires at both ends or the
kitchen look enormous, and. with the viands
slowly revolving on tbe spits, present a
wonderful picture. On cither side there
arc also charcoal fires for tbo more delicate
cookery ror the cbcfd'a!Uvres or French
invention aided by certain mysterious
utensils used in the process tbat sadly be
wilder the uninitiated, whose astonishment
is moreover excited by tbe great size
culinary vesicle displayed oslcntatio
around tbe huo fireplaces.
Among the standing dishes, wc arc
formed on her Majesty's table, there is
baron of beef, an immeasurable pie, and a
boar's head, two or three brawns, and a
large woodcock pic, which, by old custom,
is sent over by the Viceroy or Ireland.
As might have been expected, the staff or
persons employed In the kitchen is numer
ous. It consists or a rhef de ctitstno (an
important post now filled by Jt.Morct,) two
master cooks, two yeomen of tho month,
two yeomen of the kitchen, two roasting
cooks, two lardcrers, five scourers, nne
steam-man, tbrec kitchen maids, two men
In the green-ollicc, as It is called, their duty
being to clean tbe vegetables; that or the
steam-man is to boll them ; and there are
four apprentices to learu the art and mys
tery of cooking.
The scene In the kitchen is one or great
order; no bustle, no confusion; all the de
tails, even of the largest dinner, being so
subdivided and arranged that each person
has his own part to attend to, and in conse
quence there is no disorder. Tbe quiet is
remarkable. Tbe chlcr scene or activity is
when tbe footmen are in attendance to con
vcy tbe dishes from the hot tabic in tbe cen
tre or the kitchen, on which they are dis
posed, to tbe apartments in which they are
served. We say apartments, as it often
happens tbat her Majesty dines In private;
and, besides, there are so many for whom
provision is made, tbat the supply serms at
all times enormous.
Truth, crusb'd to earth, shall tise again ;
The eternal years or God are hers ;
But error, wounded, writhes with pain,
And dies among its worshippers.
MR. BEECHER ON "THE FUTURE LIFE.'
Mr. .Beecher preached a sermon In Ply
mouth church some time ago on "Tbe Fu
ture Llie," which Is attracting as much at
tention, drawing out as much crlticism.and
creating almost as great a sensation in re
ligious circles as bis famous discourse some
yean ago on "Eternal Punishment." From
the report given of it, It Is evident tbe ser
mon was characterized by the expression
of some very advanced views on tbe subject
which are not in harmony with the opin
ions held by the great mass of tbe Christian
world. lie dees not seem lo be as much
puzzled with tbe question of "Dow are the
dead raised up?" etc, as the Apostle was,
but thinks tbat In the Immortal state hu.
maalty will not be burdened with tbo sins,
passions and tendencies to evil that beset
men and women In this life, and that, as a
natural consequence, It will be easier to be
good. For example, the drunkard will
leave behind bim bis thirst for strong
drink ; there will be no occasion to cheat,
aad tbe gross passion of lust, wbiehbas
caused mora trouble in the world than any
other one evil, will not be knows', as there
Is to be no sex in heaves, neither marrying
nor giving In marriage. Mr. Beeeber asked
himself whether it would be possible for a
persoa to repent and grow bettor la the
asxt state of existence, and be replied tbat
It would be. He laid a good deal ol stress

Hiss Prim was a maiden lady of uncertain"
age who, it was allegad, had saver beea flat
tered by a marriage proposal. While ska
possessed no personal caarms, ska was cred
ited with having aasay barrels of tbat art!- .
cle which numerous misinformed peoplo
persist in calling tha "root of aHevll." Ono
day she entered the store where she was la
the habit of purchasing bar hardware, aad
was rejoiced to And tha proprietor of tha
shop who was by no means aa ill-looking
man waiting to minister to ber wants.
"Have you any stew-pans" asked Mlas
Prim, in the pleasautest tones she could
"I am sorry to say we are all out," an
swered the shop-keeper pleasantly.
"Welljpureyou any trying-pans J" con
tinued Miss P., throwing ber head on the
side in a captivating sort of way.
"X regret to say we are all out or frying
"Well, well," came from the lady ; "have
you got any kind or pans at all ?"
"Oh, yes," quickly replied the waggish
merchant; "I have a couple or kneo pans
will you have them?"
The ancient coquette blushed and said she
would, and the Innocent hardware man was
frightened out or a month's growth, when
he discovered that the lady thought he had
actually intended to offer himself as a suit
or. The merchant has a breach or proralo
suit on hand.
The ancients had a queer Idea about
mourning lor tbe dead. The Egyptian wo
man ran through the streets crying, with
their bosoms exposed, and their hair disor
dered. The Lycians regarded mourning as
unmanly, and compelled men who went In
to mourning to put on female garments. In
Greece, when a popular general dies, tho
whole army cut off their hair, and the
maues or their horses. At tbe present day,
the Arabian women stain their hands and
(cet with Indigo, which they suffer to re
main eight days. They also carefully ab
stain front milk during this time, on tbo
ground tbat its white color does not scrord
with tbe gloom of tbeir minds. In China
the mourning color is white. Mourning for
a parent or a husband Is required by law,
under penalty ol sixty blows and a year's
banishment. When tho Emperor dies, all
his subjects let their hair grow for one hun
dred days. In tbe Feejee Islands, on tbe
tenth day or mourning, tbo women scourge
all tbo men but tbo highest ehlols. Another
fashionable custom there requires tho
friends and relatives or tbe deceased to as
semble on the fourth day after the funeral,
and picture to themselves tbe amount or
corruption tbo corpse has sustained by that
time. In the Sandwich Islands, persons
desirous or going Into mourning paint tho
lower part of their faces black and knock
out tbeir front teeth.
The first coinage of Massachusetts was
authorized by a law in 1C32, which provid
ed that shillings, sixpences, and three
pences should bo coined, "for fonno flatt,
and square on tbe sides, and stamped on
the one side with N. E., and on tbo other
Xlld, VIil, and Hid, according to the value
ol each piece."
The ingenious Jacob Perkins and Jona
than Ellis, of Massachusetts, erected tbe
first machinery for cutting and heading
nails at one operation. In 1792, cut-nails
were first made in England by machinery,
two rollers with dies being employed for
tho purpose. One-hair tbe Impress was
mado In each roller where tbeycame In con
tact. Tbo blanks were Ted in at the top,
and the finished nails dropped out below
as the steel rollers revolved.
In England tbe first lottery was proposed
In tbo years 1507 and 1508, and it was held
at tbe west door or St. Paul's Cathedral.
The drawing was continued dally lrom 1 ''
11th of January, 1300, to the Gth of Jy T
following. The lottery contained 400,000
tickets at ten shillings each. The prizes
consisted partly of money, and
silver plate and other valuables. Tb
profit was appropriated to tbe im
of English harbors.

"Yes, sab ; I reckon I docs."
