From a history of the world date, A.
D. M7;j: "It was not until about the
year 1870 that the Republic of the United
States Itself licgau to show an Inclination
to creep out of thu depths of barbarism
In which the whole world was at this
lime sunk. As late a- that year, some
authorities asert, It wan customary to
hang crape on the door when a death oc
curred, anil many towns rang all the lire
bells whenever an employe of the town
government chanced to die. In one place
Philadelphia notices of deaths were
published In connection with a short
poem on the virtues of thu deceased, and
death was looked upon as a desirable
event, as well as a means of advertising.
In a small State called Delaware crim
inals were publicly whipped, one of the
various absurd customs borrowed from
the savages then occupying the llriti'li
Isles. Uroughiie, hi hl history of Dela
ware, denies this, but the best authorities
do not supjioi t him. It was In 1S7U that
floods worked so much de-trtictlon iu
America. There were great losses ol
both Jifo and propertv. Many supersti
tious people attribiiteifthc.-e disasters to
a sort of prophet named Tice.who was at

I remember In Dublin a vcrv
man of business, an upholsterer,
taker, nnd so on, who liked his
and was much In comnanv with the
principal actors. One dav he dined with
a party with Jack Vaudcrmeer, who,
from being a great favorite for his per
formance of "Skirmish" In "The De
serter," was also much aduiiied by this
same upholsterer. Vaiulermeer after
dinner came out with some handsome
Jokes anil sang a capital song, nnd the
uecanter went rounii, when the trades
man clapped the "glorious boy" on the
shoulder, saying, In high glee, "Vou're
a line fellow! I'll make you a present of
a capital mahogany dlning-table." "No,"
said Vanilcrineer, "I want no tables; I'm
in furnUlied lodgings-" "Are you'?''
said the other; and on Vandermeer's com
ing out with another ioko or two, and
the irlass uolng round, added. "You aro

The Churchman expresses thu onlnlou
that the day will come when literature
will no mora be held to bo excused from
the ordinary reuiilicnicnts of mora tv

And we believe tho course of literary puri

have no doubt that our readers would be
simply aghast could they know what
things were openly printed, within even
a century, certainly withiu twocenturles.
