Wo deny that wo havo pursued a

will admit that wo aro unworthy tho
confidence and rospect of'Mr.i Potter or
any other reputuble citizen.
If Mr. Potter will polut to one Item
of evidunce that wo havo over in our
lifo been a seeker after office, wo will
admit that wo havo been mistaken iu
our desires and have been solicitous of
publico flico withoutHjlf-k'nowledgo of

For many years wo have daily writ

UOMA'KIt IN 'NIK PALM V DAYS
OF THU FANCY.
Baltimore (iuzellc
Thu fancy of Ualtiuioro havo, as a
class, ;ilmost entirely disappeared. At
tho close of tho war thoro was n num
erous ganf of tlium in Ualtiuioro, not
only nutivcH, but from over7 section or
tho country. Tho war had boon to
thorn it flush timo. Gambling wns pro
fitable, tho naloousdid n thriving bust
ness; they dabbled in substitute brok
erage, bounty jumping and othor modes
of making money, and they spent it as
fast as mado. Tho females with whom
they consorted wcro nrrnyed in the
finest, nml-they thcinsolves wcro attirod
iu tho height of tho prevailing fashion,
though always n littlo loud. Thoir
favurito veudozvous during tho war, anil
for several vears after its olose,was on
tlio corner of Ualtinioro nnd North
streets. A few survivors yet rowain,
who nro still well dressed, but with
none of tho assurance that character
ised them dunug tho war. They gain
thoir living by precarious means ; livo
on tho ragged end of anxiety and re-
moiso, ami day by day tncir Diimnor
lessens os thov fall into tho
grave, tho victims of consumption,
of violenco or aeoidont. Under
them is still a lower stratum, who fig
ure daily in tho polico reports. Theso
resort to the classic purlieus ol JodOph
iuo street, Now Uhuroli street and sev
eral Hido streets in thu eastern section
of tho city. Of the faucy, the ptiio
fighter h tho aristocrat. At the close
ot tho war, Sam Collyer was llio presid
ing genius of tho fancy of Baltimore.
For him to be a habitual visitor to tho
saloon was to make the temporary
fortune of its proprietor. When ho
walked the streetsSho was pointed out
as a great celebrity, and when he drove
out in tho aftornoon to tako his cus
tomary airing his prcseucu created a
sensation on tho road, nnd whurever he
stopped he was surrounded at once by
a crowd of followers and flatterers all
anxious to do him honor aud reverence.
To havo shaken Sam Collyer by the
hand was at once a passport to the
higher walks of the fancy.
Tho champion, Collyer, was uot an
unprepossessing looking man. llu is
about five feet five inches high ; of
compact built, trcncrally lighting at
pouuus, nnd is courteous in uumcauor
and all able in daily J lie. ticncrosity
nnd kindness weru attributed to him,
and ho was noted for the fact that ho
would allow no ono to be im
oscd upou by his camp fol
lowers without interference on his
part. Ho rotained tho position of cm
pcror of tho Ualtiuioro fancy for sev
eral years, uutil as one by one Ins lot
lowers let t him nud thu lluh time
jia-tcd away like a tale that is told, he
with that shrewd Scotch tense which
has never left him, looked around for
othor fields in whiuh to achieve new
laurels. Ho tried rowing, but, though
ho pioved n first-class sculler, there
was uot cuouuh business in it. Ho
then started clot; danciii'' us his pifr
suit, nnd many will remember his
beautiful melodies and graceful per
lormanccs upou the stage of tho lloli
day strcot theatre, biuco then lio lias
traveled through thu land from theater
to theater each teason, making au hon
orable living aud conducting himself,
as ho had always dono here, with sobri
ety aud discretion. During his travels
he crossed tbo plums, walking tureo
hundred miles of tho way. How mat
ters aro changed in ltaltimora is
evinced by tho (act of thu little inter
est mauuested iu the result ol the com
ing fight with Kdwards.

My Dkak Mit. HoNNKit Why
should one no utsturueu on sucli a
lrrcat and glorious day ns tho hord is
now rolling across the world ? Your
mcnscngcr came for the weekly article
Ono feels as if he were a mill aud must
grind regularly. Surely no better bag
was ever hung to catch the grist being
ground than tho Ledger, lfut why
should ovou tho Ledger bo servod on
such a day as this?
Tho heavens aro dcoper than the
thoughts can reach. Hound and rouud
the horizon the sun pours effulgence
which docs not burn, but pierces with
a new lifo and makes the clod vital. I
rejoice on theso great days that seem
illimitablo and unfathomable, full of
cool heat nud blue brightness. hen
clouds d nro uot coiuu forth, and the
pavilion above is without spot, or rift,
or film, nnd no shadow falls down on
the mountain (let mo seo, what do I
rejoice in oh, I remember I) I re
joicu in the infinitesimal Jil'c that I
seo.
Thu population of thu globo is uot
counted by the human family. Our
egotism speaks of how many men live
on thu globe, as if that were thu only
thing worth thinking of. God is
pleased to think differently. When he
looks out of the heavenly window he
sees n great many men, doubtless a
great many moro perhaps than ho
wants to see: liut over, beneath and
around hiui ho beholds au immense
life, various, vcrsatilo, infinitely
equipped, and with ono attribute in all,
tho pursuit of happiness.
I sit watching tho ground, the bark,
tho old rotten logs, tho nooks and
scams, tho trees and leaves, and find
that they nro tho swarmiuir habitations
of insect life, lteants of magnitude
aro outdono by tho luGnUcn'nuul crea
tion. They livo together as men do,
somo pursuing, somo running away,
somo eating, and some being eaten ;
with every method of locomotion ;
with wonderful adaptation, not only
with physical condition, but iutcr
sphering with each other. So that
this vast microcosm, which most men
never think of, is moving along with
onormously diffused lifo and enjoy,
meut.
Iam not lazy, theti, whon I am do
ing nothing. Lyiug on your back is a
useful employment. Sittiug in tho cor
uor nud watching tho career of criokets,
tho stolid waitings of the qulok spiders,
is "as good as a play," nnd n great
deal better thuu a book. An
alert but dreamy gaze into tho bo
som of imturw, to see how alio touds
her manifold children, is on tho road to
education.
Now, to think of sotting down to a
