"I ACKNOWLEDGE THE CORN."
The Hon. Charles A. Wickliffe,
member of Congress from Kentucky,
was the first who made this remark,
which has now become a popular
phrase, in reply to an argument for
protection made by the Hon. Andrew
Stewart, from Pennsylvania.
Mr. Stewart was in Congress when
Henry Clay and Daniel Webster were
there and advocated protection. In
1828, fifty years ago, th; sabject of pro
teetion was before Congress. Mr.
Stewart was trying to show that far
mers were purchasing foreign agricul
tural productions in the form of goods,
while they left their own produce at
home without a market, and observed
that Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky sent
their haystacks, cornfields, and fodder
to New -York and Philadelphia for
M. Wicklilie, of Kentucky, jumped
up and said :
"Why, that is absurd. Mr. Speakers
I call the gentleman to order. He is
stating an absurdity. We never send
hay stacks or cornfields to Now York
"Well," said Mr. Stewart, ",what do
you send ?"
"Why, horses, mules, cattle, hogs."
"Well," continued Mr. Stewart,
"what makes your horses, mules, eat- t
tle and hogs? You feed a hundred
dollars worth of hay to a horse, you
just animate and get upon the top of
your haystack and ride It off to mar- c
ket. And how is it with your cattle? B
You make one of them carry fifty dol- t
lars worth of hay and grass to to he
"I rickon that's so," replied Mr.
"And now Mr. Wicklifft," continued e
Mr. Stewart, "you send a hog worth I
ten dollars to an Eastern market, how
much corn does it take at thirty-three s
cents per bushel to fatten It?"4
"Why, thirty, bushels." -
"Then you put that thirty bushels of a
corn into theshape of a hog, and make c
it walk off to the Eastern market."
Mr. Wickliffe jumped up and said :

were of little practical value. The cen

Inhospitable Reception of the Southern
Negroes on the Conines of Kansas.
KANSAs CITY, April 8, 1879.
Two hundred and fifty colored' peo
pie arrived here yesterday from the
South on a river steamer. They are in
a very destitute condition. This arri
val swells the number to about twelve
hundre4. 'W hat to do withtbhese peo
ple has become' a serious question.
They have. landed on Kansas soil, Just
west o0ithe State line, and inside of the
limits of the city of Wyandotte. The
peopli of Wyandotfe cannot aupport
theri, and the authorities ofKansas do
not seem to care for theh.: They have
no money, and seem ipgliy no friends.
The' Tlmns heipondent went out to
the camp to-day and found the poor col
ored people in a state of alarm. They
say the people of Wyandotte threaten
to shoot them if they don't leave the
Mace. They say It is Impossible to
leave, as they have no money. l
leader, or "deacon," of the colony de
clares they were promised an award
from the government of 100 acres of
land. A circular had been distributed
throughout the Southern States, which
distinctly spelified that there was
landed estates waiting the colored man
in Kansas. In response to the circu
lar the large majority of the darkies
had come West. Now that they had
arrived the promises were not fulfilled,
and the agent who was to carry them
into the realization of their hopes had
gone. This is the condition of the dar
kies at present. They have no money,
and meagre protection from the weath
er. In reply to the question as to what
they proposed doing, the "deacon"
looked as if he was called upon to crack
a conundrum, but said that all they
wanted was to get back to their homes
in the South. If they could only get
back, theycould get enough to eat and
wear from the Southern people. He
said that three or four of their number
had been sick since their arrival in
Kansas, and they attribute the cause to
the drinking of the Western water.
The Wyandotte people announced a
meeting to be held on Saturday night,
but if it was carried out it was in secret.
A gentleman of that city, who is quite
Indignant at Kansas City and St. Louis,
says that from a reliable person and
good authority he learned that the re
spective councils of the two Missouri
cities hlld bribed the captains of the
boats, and by strategy had pushed the
boats to Kansas landings. The indig
nant Wyandotter said that they were
determined to check the negroes from
landing in WVyandotte or coming to
that place, unid they would levy a tax
upon every individual darkey of five
hundred dollars if it were necessary.
After doing this they would arm them
selves and enforce whatever enactment
they made. The darkies are leaviung
slowly, in various directions, and are
trying to secure employment.
The President and Mr. Evarts are
said to be invited to the next fair in
Governor Talbot, of Massachusetts,
is said to be extremely democratic; he
sits with open doors and receives every
body with kindness.
Speaker Randall has some claim to
be considered a numismatist. In his
collection he has a specimen of every
gold coin which has been coined in
lilhu Burritt loft property amount
ing to about $8,000. Some of the land
will ho sold, and a part of the pro
ceeds given to the American peace
society, of Boston, and to the New
Britain agricultural society.
Lord Beaconfield's health, it is as
serted, Is far from good ; indeed, at the
late royal wedding he was obliged to
remain seated, only raising himself
and appearing to do it with some diffi
culty when the queen entered.
The Marquis Tsing, the now Chlinese
ambassador to England and France,
speaks and writes English fluently, and
has some knowledge of French. He
has been accompanied to London by
hit wife and throoe children.
Of William Iowltt this strange and
happy thing is said : "IIe was one of
thoec rare men of whom we might say
that had hoto liveover again he would,
apart from mistakes to which humani
ty is liable, repeat the life which has
just closed so peacefully."
Victoria, crown princess of Germany,
is remarkably fond of horses. 1Vhen
she arrived at the Charing Cross sta
lion not long ago, where her two
brothers were waiting to meet her, sihe
was presently discovered patting the
beautiful horses attached to the royal
carriages and addressing them cheerily.
Thiers was a man of enormous ambi
tion. His mother, who early discov
ered this characteristic in her son, once
said to a friend: "-Adolpo will never
go afoot. He will catch on behind the
wagon, then he will work forward on
to the seat, throw out the driver and
seize the reins himself." The states
man had, however, a high sense of
personal dignity--so high that he at
tached little importance to more titles.
He said once: "I cannot understand

AYro sS PIrLS have been known for
!; ore than a quarter of a century, and have
lobtained a world-wide reputation for their
,;virtues. They correct diseased action in
the several assimilative organs of the
body, and are so composed that obstuc

stand or evade them. Not only do they
cure the every-day complaints of every
body, but also formidable and dangerous
diseases that have baffled the best of
human skill. While they produce power
ful effects, they are, at the same, time, the
safest and best physic for children. By
their aperient action they gripe much less
than the common purgatives, and never
give pain when the bowels are not inflamed.
They reach the vital fountains of the blood,
and strengthen the system by freeing' it
from the elements of weakness.
Adapted to all ages and conditions in
all climates, containing neither calonmel

be taken with safety by anybody. Their
sugar-coating preserves them ever fresh,
and makes them pleasant to take; while
being purely vegetable, no harm can arise
from their use n any quantity.
