Max Adler's Patriotism.
Tha acooaati in th Boston
piper, of the) Utter part of
i ano, of the celebration ia that
city of the anniTeirsary of tha
battl of Bunker Hill show
that Boston displayed an enor
moas amount of enthusiasm on
that occasion. As we-Jost that
battle, it is limply fearful to
think: of the intensity of the
patriotlo devotion which Bos
ton would display if we had
won it. And - isn't it a little
wild at any rate, for the people
to become frenzied, with joy
because they bare been beaten!
Take our own case. . In June,
1803, we enljsted in thenilitia
ana marched out to defend the
State .of Pennsylvania. One
day we met some, rebels fooling
around on the other sde of the
river from Uarrisburg, and
those of our comrades who did
not instantly remember ' that
they had important business to
attend to at home, betrtyed a
singular disposition to fly up to
Williannport, Fa., in order to
check any rebel force which
should attempt to cross thelSew
York slate line into PennsyN
vania. We aloae of all our reg
iment, htild our ground. Too
proud to fly, too brave to fear
the foe, too eager to serve our
country to retreat in the mo
ment oi danger we merely step
ped into a house close at hand,
slid into ihe cellar and lay in
the refrigerator for two days,
living on some cold bam found
therein and determined to
hold that refrigerator against
the foe, to the death. Wo rere
never recommended for pro
motion in any of the reports,
strange to say. The generals
all seem to, have overlooked
the matter somehow. Now it
would be perfectly absurd for
the people of Uarrisburg to cel
ebrate every year the anniver
sary of the retreat of that mili
tia regiment and we appeal to
them not to do it, no matter
what Eoston does. If Harris
burg is just, it will erect a
monument 'to us. Say a stat
ue of Serge nt Adler forked
down over a bra-s horse with a
hollow cast iron tail, with his
fore-legs on a silver-plated re
frigerator and a figure oi a cola
ham in his mouth. It the be
roio deeds o brave men are to
be made historic, here is the
ehanoe. Justice requires some
thing to be done. If we are
not straddled over a brass horse
we wi I lei the country go to
destruction befora we will ever
fortify ourselves in another re

The Lone Star State.
The State of Texas is devel

great, emigration movement
Iron tba old States in the
North and from all parts of Eu
rope. The population of Texas
in 1870 was 818,579; in 1873 it
was estimated , at 11,500,000,
and is now increasing. beyond
any previons ratio. There are
many reasons for the present
interest felt by a large portion
of our people in the develop
ment oi Texas, and among them
are the great fertility of its soil,
its genial, healthy, climate, its
wealth of minerals; the aston
ishing variety of its products,
and the unparalleled magni
tude of its facilities for raising
live-stock of all kinds. Anoth
er fact, and perhaps one of the
oqost important, is the removal
of old prejudices respecting the
lawless character of the Texas
people. As they are better
known, they are found to be or
derly and law-abiding, and in
the older towns as much cul
ture and refinement can be
found as exist in the old cities
of the North. The completion
of the Missouri, Kansas &
Texas Kailroad affords easy and
direct communication with
Texas, and. although the road
has been in operation but four
months, the entire rolling stock
of the road is required to meet
the demands of trade and the
transportation of emigrants
who are seeking homes in the
"Lone btar'' State. The Texas
or Southern Pacifio Railroad, in
connection with other railroad
interests in the State are ex
erting a strong influence to
represent the merits "of Texas
to our ownlpeople, and have ar
ranged a system of foreign
agencies, whereby emigrants
are directed and located upon
lands, to assist in the develop
ment of this great State.
A Gallant Elephant.
Few sentimental damsels
would approve of the transfor
mation of a well known line
into "a trunk was on my shnul

Accordingly, a young lady who
lately visited the Jardin les

with her friends, was more ter

has shown us a small glass,
one inch and five eights in di

eighth larger at the top, and
two inches tfaigh. On the ex

four ridges, running from the
bottom to within a half an
inch of the top, about one
6ixteenth,of an inch in height.
It is slightly scaled at the top,

The most remarkable thing
about the glass is the fact that
it was found imbeded in a mass
of slate, overlying an ore bank,
eleven feet below the jurface
of the eartb, in the vicinity of
Hope Furnace, Vinton county,
by workmen in the employ of
Mr. Urimslev. while re
moving the slate preparatory
to digging the ore. Mr. Farley
is very certain the glass was
found as described, as when it
came into his posession it was
imbeded in the slate as solid
as if cast in it. It was difficult
to remove the slate without
breaking the glass. At '.'one
point in the bottom is a de
pression, at which place was
found a small lump of salt
petre. Antiquarians and others
desirous, can see the glass by
calling on Mr. O. P. Hawkins.
The Enquirer has revived
old charges against Qov. Noyes ,
and refuted two years ago,
and wants to know why we do
not reply. We may give it at

should have nothing better to

an interest in the matter, very

during the months when part
of our business was to expose
the campaign lies of the Dem
ocrats in this connection we
may remark that the soldier
who wrote a letter in 1871
charging drunkenness upon
Qov. Noyes while in the army
has aflso been resurrected, and
has written a new letter or re
dated the old one on that sub
ject. We suppose we shall
have to go all over that ground
again to show that thn author
of the letter in question does
not tell the truth; that he suf
fered disgrace in the army
and that he has a grievance.

Oni ol the most remarkable
changes ever wrought on th
publio mind, says the Daily
Register, a legal journal of
New York, is that in regard to
John Hartranft, Governor of
Pennsylvania. During the cam
paign, which resulted in his
election only last fall, he waa
represented to be the worst
man in the State, guilty of pec
ulation, conspiracy and a seek
er for spoils, and as lacking ia
ability. Now it seems that hit
enemies and the press which

not able to find language strong
enough to express their admir

occurred rather suddenly. We
also stated that be left a large
estate. We are informed that
on Monday, one of his- son
(Eli), whom we saw on our
streets drunk, sold his entire
interest in the estate lett by
his father, to John Myers, Esq.,
and John Berry, M. 0., for a
consideration of $4,000 for
which he received $500 in
cash, and 3,500 in notes. In
a few hours he sold the notes
to different parlies for about
$1,900. And it is reported that
when he started for home in
tho evening, he had about $17
left. Well informed citizens
say that his share of the estate
is worth- from ten to twelve
thousand dollars. '
