Previous lo tho ncccMion of Gen
eral Arthur to tho Presidency, tlireo
Vice-Presidents had renshed thnt olllco
in conscqiicnco ot tho death oi tho
President. In tho irovious cam
ligni, the second placo on the ticket
hnd been accorded them to conciliate
tho minority iu tho nominating con
vention. Neither of theso Vice
Presidents enjoyed confidential rela
tions with the President, and when
suddenly called tu ho his successor, it
was felt that Micro would bo something
more than n mere nominal chaugo in
tho Administration. It was neverthe
less bcliovcd thai tho cardinal policy
of tho party would bo maintained.
General Harrison survived his in
auguration only a. month It was
supposed that Mr. Tyler would carry
into clTcct tho financial doctrines which
had so signally triumphed in 1840,
Hut, after four months of vacillation,
ho discarded them, and dismissed,
with n singlo exception, tho Harrison
Uabinot, ' selecting his ndviicra and
making his chief appointments from
tho minority faction which had been
defeated in tho nominatint? convention
of tho previous year. He ultimately
became tho open opponent of tho
Whig party, and threw the whole
weight of his administration against
tho election of Mr. Clay as his suc
cessor. ' After . being President a year and
four months, General Taylor died, in
tho midst of tho violent struggle over
tho slavery compromise measures of
1850. Mr. Fillmore, whn had op
poted tho nomination oi General
Taylor, immediately changed tho
wholo Cabinet, ignored tho liberal
policy of his predecessor on tho slavery
question, turned his back on Free Soil
Whigs of the typo of Wm. II. Sow
ard, and led tho party so near to tho
gates of death that it was only left to
General Scott, in the next Presidential
contest, to open tho portals and allow
it tu be consigucd to tho tomb which
had just received its great founders,
Daniel Webster and Henry Clay.
Tho courso pursued by Andrew
Johnson on tho death of Mr. Lincoln
is fresh iu tho public recollection.
Commencing with tho most vehement
denunciation of tho rebels, ho changed

in that direction when they repudiated

Strungo feelings rushed iuto my mind

A Signitltant Story.
A wealthy banker in ino of our
largo cities, who is noted for his largo
suliscrlptions to chnritic, and for his
kindly habits of privato bcnovolence,
was called on by his pastor, one eve
ning, and asked to go with him to tho
help of a man who had attempted
Thoy found tho man in a wretched
houso,. in on alley, not far from tho
banker a dwelling. Tho front room
was a cohblcr'fl shop; behind it, on a
miserabio bed, iu tho kitchen, lay tho
poor shoemaker with a gasping gash
in his throat, whilo his wifo and chil
dren wcro gathered, about him.
"Wo havo been without food for
days," said tho woman, when ho re
turned. "It is not my husband's
fault. Ho is a hardworking, sober
mnn. liut he could neither get work
nor pay for that which ho had done.
To day ho went for tho last time to
collect n debt due him by a rich fami
ly, but tho gentloman was not at
homo. My husband was weak from
fasting, and seeing us starving drove
him mad. So it ended that way,'
turning to tho fainting, motionless
figuro on tho bed.
The banker having fed and warmed
tho family, hurried home, opened his
desk and took out a filo of little bills.
All his large debts woro promptly
met quarterly, but ho was apt to ho

bread, etc., becauso they wcro so

"Waiter," said ono of our pork mer
chants to his sixteun-ycar-old hope,
"I don't mind how short you have
your coats cut ao long as they strike
you somewhere below tho shoulder
blades; neither docs it trouble mo to
see you choking yourself to death iu a
pair of tight pants; nor am I much
concerned in how mauy scarf pins you
sport each day, or how large a bundle
you carry to tho laundry every twen
ty-four hours. Though the sight of
your munaclio in its leelne cuorts
for life, makes mo faint, yet I can
bear up oven under that, but over let
mo catch yoj wearing you watch

you'll go to work in tho storo before
you can say 'quito too utter,' do you

Mukden Tkials. Tho manner of
trying murderers has made tho pop
ular impreJsiou thnt it is a jugglo to
defeat justice. To try if tho accused
it guilty is not made the chief object,
but to try if, being guilty, ho can not
bo acquitted by tho machinery of the
law, the looseness of tho bench, mid
tho feeble minds of jurors. Tho con
duct of the Judges is as if their busi
ness was to givo the widest latitude to
the eflorts of lawyers to clear the
guilty. So debased is court and bar
sentiment that it calls this abuse, giv
ing tho accused ii fair trial. Hut a
fair trial is just the opposite of this;
it is to find out aud convict the guil-
ty,uot to clear him. Cincinnati Ga-

When tho barber kindly informs

shampoo it as a remedy, it is safe to
say "No," most positively. The ma
jority of tho bar bora Uso as a sham

"salts of tartar" alone, or mixed with
borax. Thoy nro probably nil awaro
that "(alls of tartar" is but a name
for purified potash. When a solution
of this is put Upon (ho head it com
bines with tho natural oil of tho hair
and scalp, and forms a soap which
makes a dense lather in the hair; this
is washed out, and whilo It efiectually
removes tho daudrufT and dust, it has
also removed Ihe oil which is needed
to keep the hair in a healthy condi
tion. Avoid all such shampooing. A
tnblcspoonful of powdered borax in a
quart of water forms a cafe shampoo
ing liquid, but still better is tho yolk
of an egg, worked thoroughly into
tiie hair, applying a little at a time,
and then washing it out. Tho egg
will leave the hair surprisingly clean

An exchango truthfully says that
there is ono reason for advertising that
business men rarely consider its
general effect on tho prosperity of
their own place. Tho nowspaper
goes out iuto the world from week to
week ns tho representative of tho city,
aud men judge of tho city more by
tho newspaper than anything else. If
it is newsy and able, and mauy local
firms are represented in its advertis
ing columns, they assume at once,
aud generally correctly, that it comes
from a live city a good city to live
in and near and they thus aro drawn
thither. Tho effect is not slight and
the suggestiou is one which deserves
the consideration of every trados
man." Let our business men make
a note of this. Clarksville Tobacco
