Winter, wo have been told, ha made this
arrangement, but our information on this
point may be Incorrect. Mr. W. it how
ever taking great interest in the temper
anoe movement and religious revival; he
has closed hi saloon and betaken himself
to devotion. With Mr. Lewis a bis ally,
oecicea Dy Jir. iiavi or tbe 'Sun' and
our moral support, Mr. W. would Jb a
power not to be resisted. Wo therefore
hope tbe rumor now prevalent in the com
munity of Mr. W.' missionary inton.
lion may prove to be well-founded. Saul
before hi conversion was tbe tcourge of
Christianity; after his conversion be be
came tho bright particular star ot the
church. Is It not therefore possible tbat
Mr. Winter may eclipse Oough and

A rOLicxMaN of New York bat ascer
tained that there are in that city three
hundred comuunUU, and tbat tbe bloody
fallow actually declare ;that " it (s not
only work we want, but also liberty and
abaelutlen of high salaries and monopo
lixation," TbU declaration shocked tbe
policeman, and will send a shudder to the
heart of every perton in the land wbo
don't want the outrageout communist to
have work, and also liberty and " abtolu
Hon of high talaries and monopolization."
But the eommunlsts want something else
also. At a recent meeting lb
chairman (to tbe policeman aay.)
taid; ' We want the heads of soma of
the thieves who are now stealing the
fundi of the city. We want their bead,
and we will bavo them 1" Tbl it awful,
viewed from tbe tbievet' standpoint ; but
the ouuide world, that it to y, that
portion of tbe world who are not the
thlevt now robbing New York oily,
are Inelinod to applaud the communut'
decitlon and to be anxlout that tbey

GO EAST 1
!1 . n . .
urujy, aavice u: Go
ii hi, young man ; Ko West." Pofn,..i
thlt advice we' worthy of conild.rallou.
Hera in tbe West was a new field Vn
""' muusuy and sagacity might
uring w meir possessor wealth, if not
uouor-j out, oi late years, all tbl ha
been changed, and If Senator Schur cav
a true picture of tbe financial condition
of the country In hi great tpeocb on last
iutsday, the advice of tbe sensible states
man to all the people of tbe West an
South would be: "Go East, you fools;
go East." "Thoro is not money enough
In the West and South," says Scburz; "it
is In tbe Et." "Let ut then give to' the
people tbe right to establish bankt In the
Wett and Soutb," respond Morton and
Logan. "To do to would be a futile at
tempt to oorroot tbe evil," antwert Bchurz;
'to ettabliib b bank your Wottern or
Southern man would be compelled to take
$110,000 greenbacks and buy $100,000 ol
bonds In Wall trout, before he wjuld
have tbe'dfht to issue $90,000 of na
tional bank currency; and tbat surely
woia not be adding to tbe volume of
currency in the Wett and Soutb,
but be giving more to Wall
street and the Katt." " Let ut, then. in.
flat tbe cutrency," uggett Morton and
Logan ; "by doing to tbe Watt and South
will turly obtain more money." Not
o," rpond Scburz ; "if wb inflate, bow
will you go about the work You mutt
itb.tr pay tha Inoratetd volume out to
defray the expense of tbe government
or throw It upon tbe country by purcbai.
loc government bonds. We would Inflate
by buying bonda. Would we buy them
In the Wait and South? Noj but in Wall
treat and Boiton, and thin throw the in
created volume ot curreacy Into the cen
ter of tpeculatlon, from which it would
reach the Weet and South only after the
producli of those lorllom bad been offer
ed for tale in tho Kaitern market and
lold." Tbo Kelt, a:cord!n to Frbtirz,
hai mattert all ill own wy, and no
remedy can bo applied. The "West
and Jouth tnuit tubralt to Me,
and uncomplainingly permit the
Kait to tap their proiperity. If the
tenator it not miitaken if the. financial
policy ol the government has mado tbo
West and South hewer of wood and
drnwora of waters for tho Eait, and every
attempt tint it made to chango thit
policy to ai to give the "West and Soutb
lomethlng like financial equality with toe
East, only addi to tbo malign po-or of
the East and fasten the bond more
firmly upon tho energies of the West and
Soul's tbn, indeed, tho dvice to ' Go
East; you fools ; go E.t,"' would be x
cellent advice, and he would be In truth
a fool who did not heed It ; but, surely the
senator Is mistaken. He It a book worm :
about him there Is nothing practical; a
tbeorlzer be follows in old paths and can
ee nothing to bo tolerated that does cot
square by the rule of old-time Ideas; be
I an eftte statesman and will be taught
by event that America cannot procper
under the tfaanclal policy of the "gold
beater" of the past; that the West
cannot be dominated by the East; and
that out of what he call tho evil "ex
pansion'1 will come forth the tjreat good
of national prosperity.
The veracious chronicler of the events
of the life of David Crockett eulogies bis
hero's qualities as a marksman. Crock
ett, we are told, was a "sure shot." His
fame bad becomo known throughout all
the forests of Tennesson. There was not
a bird, or doer, or bear, or coon that did
not Cnow David Crockett to bo a marks
man who never missed the game at which
ho discharged (be contents of bis trusty
rifle. "It is related," says tho chronicler,
"thatonone occasion Mr. Crockett dis
covered a coon on one of the highest
branches ot one of tbo tallust trees in tho
forest. Tho coon, in apparent confidence
that he was tocuro from tbe bullot of any
ordinary marksman, aid not, at first, pay
much attention to the hunter under
neath him ; but, juit.es Mr. Crockett.wbo
had taken doliberato aim, was about to dii
charge bit gun, tho coon recognized him,
and tromhlingly shouted: 'Mr. Crocket'.,
Mr. Crockett; I recognize you, and you
need not shoot; 1 11 come down.' And he
dfd, that same old coon, and ubmitted
bimselt to his fate."
There are in tbl. day end generation a '
few-a very lew David Crocketts of Chri. '
tianity, who when they aim at a sinner'
nut oi prayer never tell to bring
down the came. We have bn. Ilk
Crockett' coon, for many years entcooii
among the topmost branches of the
tree of worldllness, a wonderful

beautiful in sinfulness, and we have be-in
confident tbat no bullet of prayer could !
ever reacu us, no matter irom what gun ;
it was discharged; but, by Jupiter 1 we
fear we have been too confident. Yeiter
day we "catt down our eye," at tbe
laying it, and under the tree wo beheld
the whole congregation of toe Methodist
church of this city. In the midst
was a Crockett in petticoat aiming at us
tbe ride of sorrowful condemnation, tell
ing those about ber tbat vie were
not half a mean a man at we teemed to
be, and begging them all to load their
praying gum and in the evening tiro at ut
timultaneoutly. In tbe evening again
we lookod down; all tbe congregation
were aiming at ui, and each ditcbarged
hi well-alined gun. We were wounded,
but not killed. Wo are still clinging to
our limb; but v beg to asitiro those
Christian Crocketts tbat tbey need not

We do not say Ibis in levity, but in
tbat tone of easy solemnity which adils
pIco to rellgloui compotltlont. We, as
much at any perton, recognize and appre
ciate the wonderful and mytterlout power
tbat it now abroad in the land,
and we have begun, at it is tsIJ in Ksdras,
greatly to commend thern thai stand so

And now tho different matrimonial en
gagements aro announced. Miss Grant's
marrlagu to Mr. Sarloris Is fixed for
October next Mr. Sarloris is the son of
Adelaide Kemble, and nephow to .Funny
Kemble Butter. Tbo young man traveled
wltb Miss Grant upon her return from
Europe, more tban threti years ago. lie
did not declalr his love at that lime, but
went West on his journey. Happening
to be in St. Loult when the president
visited there last spring, and witnessing
the homage tbat was paid him on that oc
casion, it seemed to dawn upon tbe mind
of tbe young. man that tbe daughter of
Ibu Aiuiuiiu president was not altogeth
er undesirable. He made known his In
tentions to the young lady s father, wbo
rejected him on account of tbe want of
fortune on both sides, for, said the presi
dent, my daughter possesses no dowerv,
and he might nave added that our repub
lican form of government forbids a sala
ry being voted by congress when a mem
ber of the royal family marries.
Kor a time al'l negotiations were
suspended, but an accident to tbe oldest
son and heir removed all Impediments,
and as soon asfSartorls' pero recovered
from the shock of his oldesti son's death
(which was caused by his being thrown
from his horse), he wrote to the president
and said that Miss Nell's adorer couli
now support her comfortably on $40,000
a yoar. This produced a revulsion, and
after, a few preliminaries the encasement
took place, and was announce!. So there
is something to stir us all up next fall ' 1
am lold that tlie bartoris lioute,
near London, is tbe resort of all
authors, artists, and celebrities.
Those who know Mist Nellie's fondness
for dancing have asked it there was a ball
room, and did the old folks enjoy the Ger
man ' .NO doubt mat Jtus Nellie will
prove herself a true American girl, who
can nil and adorn anv station. ol. rred.
Grant's fta 'f, Mis Kilty Cook, hu re
turned from Europe, and it a perfect
beauty. She it lorelv in character, too,
and I hope tbe younc man appreciates
his uood fortune." So amii the themes of
politics and finance that aro discussed at
tbe White House, is the ola but ever sew
one of love and marriage.
