Mr. F., "But I have not time to

'you might argue from now

The long business day lapced
slowly away, and Mr. Farquhar
returned home just an the graj
shadows ot dusk were closing

said he, rubbing his palms to

tea-table. "Jones borrowed It

I think it would be rather a
more sensible way of spending
the money to pay the doctor's
Mr. Farquhar laughed.
"Well, my dear, I don't know
but you are right," said he,
"and I guess you may go
around and pay it to morrow."
The arrival of Master Tommy

nursery, broke up furlhei fi

Mr. Farquhar. "Give him my

"Where are they sir," said
On the floor, by the bed, up

The beggar took the boots
and went cn his way rejoicing,
and just as Mr. Farquhar was
buttoning up his overcoat to
depart for the regions down

then stood still. It was bad

it was still worse to be com

The Democracy of Ohio have
nominated an old fossil who
has been buried out of sight
for the last twenty-five years,
with tbe exception of a short
period when be made a feeble
effort, like a thorough Copper
head that he was, to aid the
cause of that archtraitor, Val
landigham. Justice to the
memory ot one of the bravest,
purest and best men this coun
try ever produced, requires ns
to show up the record of this
venerable fossil, William Al
len. In 1840, when General Ear
risoc, the hero of Tippecanoe,
of Fort Meigs, and tbe Thames,
was running as tho Whig can
didate for the Presidency, Mr.
Allen invented and circulated
a story to the effect that Har
rison was a coward at all three
of the above battles, and that
the ladies of Chillicothe, to
show their contempt for him
as a general, presented him, in
public, a red flannel petticoat.
So macilestly false was this in
famous story, that the people
denounced it as such, and with
one accord they called him
"Petticoat Allen." Nearly ev
ery Whig procession carried
an effigy draped in a red pet
ticoat, labeled "Petticoat Al
len." Ladies ail over the coun
try sent him their cast-off pet
ticoats, labeled as above, to
show their appreciation of his
slanderous utterances. When
ever he appeared ia the
streets, the very boys would
yell out, "there comes old Pet
Of course, General Harri
son's record being invulnera

ground, and the 'hero of Tip
pecanoe was triumphantly
This is about the only con
spicuous fact that is recorded
of "Petticoat Allen," and for
the last quarter cf a century
he has been utterly unknown
as a politician or a man oi

Asthma in the Oil Regions.
The Titusville Herald says
that asthma is of very rare oc
currence in the oil regions and
that the cause of such exemp
(ion is found in the fact that
the atmosphere there is strong
ly impregnated with the va
pors of petroleum, which act
almost as a specific for the re
lief of asthma, and at the same
time as a preventive of con
sumption. It adds:
Let any one who is afflicted
with asthma, and feels a par
ticular difficult spell of breath
ing coming on, go in the vicin
ity ot a producing well where
petroleum vapor hoverj in the
neighborhood, and he will find
great relief and continued pres
ence in such a neighborhood
will be the best mean of a per
manent cure. We look forward
to the time when physicians all
over the United Slates will re
commend to their asthmatic
patients a journey to tbe oil re
gions, and we hope some suit
able preparation will be made
for their entertainment and di
version. Tbe prospect of an
infirmary for such subjects has
been seriously discutted by
many of our citizens, but has
nod yet taken definite shape.

[From the Ohio State Journal.
It is usual with Democratic
Conventions to place peculiar
stress on what are alleged to
be the oppressions of labor.
No Democratic platform would
be complete without some
thing particularly emphatic cn
that subject. But when we
come to look aroand lor what
the Democratic party has done
for labor, we find precious lit
tle to its credit. On the other
haad, we find it charged with
the enslavement of labor lr
more than half a century. It
degraded labor into beast of
burden, and sold laborers liko
cattle in the market We do
not mean, of course, that tha
Democratic organization bo't
and sold 6laves, but that by
making itself the champion
and apologist of slavery, it be
came morally responsible
therefor, and for all its con
comitant crimes and miseries.
n this connection it should be
also remembered that the sys
tem of Southern peonage to
which the Democratic party as
sumed the relation of protector
and friend, degraded the while
race no less than the black.
degraded alike those who
participated in it, those who
connived at it, those who ei-
enily tolerated it. But more
than all, it degraded labor.
Once admit that any class of
aborers may bo boaght nnd
sold as chatties, as the Demo
cratic party has repeatedly ad
mitted and affirmed, audit nec
essarily follows that the same
privileges of ownership may
be extended over every other
class. The slaveholders wero
not Blowtoaee this, or timid
in making use of its Wi!
'orce. Mr. Fitzhugh, a propa
gandist of pro-slavery Democ
racy, repudiated the idea that
slavery was defensible only a
scriptural curse laid upon a
particular race, and defended
it on principle, as equally ap
plicable to &l races. "Slavery,
black or white." said he. i.
lght and necessary." A South
Carolina paper echoed in theso
words the same sentiment;
'The great evil of Northern
free society is that it is burden
ed with a servile class ot me
chanics and laborers, unfit for
elf government, andyet cloth
ed with the attributes and
powers of citizens. Master
and slave is a relation in socie
ty as necessary as that of p i
rent and child; and the North
ern States will yet have to in
troduce it. Slavery is the nai
ural and normal condition r f
the laboring man. whether
white or black."
The Richmond (V.) Enquirer
expressed Ihe same views A3
ate as 1856. It saidi
"The South now maintain
that slavery is right, natural,
and necessary, While it is fir
more obvious that negroes
should be slaves ihan whiles.
for they are fit to labor, not U
direct, yet the principle of
slavery is itself right, and docs
not depend on difference ot
These doctrines were proba
bly not largely entertained bv
Northern Democrats, but they
