Editor Oravgeburg Neics and Times : j
In a communication published in
your columns on the loth inst.,
allusion is made to the formation of
riflu clubs as indicating a hostile
altitude on tbo part of the "while I
people towards the colored people. 1
deem it proper to say that tec impu
tation, so far as the "Kdisto Rifle
Club" of this place is concerned, is
unjust. Had the author of the com
munication referred to been a resident
of OiahgL'burg long enough to know
anything of its history, he would not
have been so grievously mistaken in
relation to certain facts, which arc
familiar to all classes of our own
people, whether white or colored. 1
w ill stale a few of them.
.Several years ago, there were at
least two military organizations
among the colored people of this
ci nut3*, one at Ornngcburg, and one
at I.cwisville. The company at
Ornngcburg paraded through the
streets on several occasions with full
crpii] nichts; but I am not aware that
nny disturbance arose from this "ex
hibition of arms."
As far as the Edislo Rifle Club is
conccn.td, it was organized and its
nt iiis ] ii'i chased over a year ago, when
there was no issue of any kind,
political or otheiwisc, of a nature
calculated to disturb thepublic peace.
Under the impulse of the military
spirit engendered by the various cen
tennial celebrations, it has been
stimulated into mere active existence
than heretofore; aud, I am happy to
my, is rapidly approaching a condi
tion of* efficiency, equal to that of its
numerous sister clubs in the metropo
lis and the capital. It has been
formed with no view cf "brandishing
arms in the faces" of anybody; it is
composed from among the best of our
people, and has on its rolls the most
substantial and prudent of our
ciiizens, who endorse its objects, all of
which ure lawful.
In conclusion, I am willing to be
lieve that your correspondent erred
not designedly, but simply because his
short residence in our community ren
ders him liable to mistake, as to its
lottery, tone and sentiments.

Horse-Racing and Church-Going
cn the Sabbath.
Editor Oldngcburjg Neic* and Times:
A short time ago I saw a horse-race
in the streets of Orniigcburg on the
Sal hath 1-hiy. I was soiry to sec it
for it showed a recklessness and con
tempt for public opinion not usually
exhibited in this town. The Sta'e
law prohibits this practice on the
Sabbiitb, and I hope our Town Coun
cil will at once enact an ordinance to
pieyt?t it, if there is none on record.
This violation of the Sabbath leads
i;&tti rally to the reflection that the
attcrdt nee upon the services of our
churches is lamentably small. A
<!atk c'oud or u slight sprinkle, which
during the week woiihf not keep a
lady from shopping for a spool of
(bread, affords a suflicient (?) reason
lokccii many idle at home on Sunday.
Some of our people never attend
church, and I earnestly invite their
attention, and the attention even of
church members, to the following
reasons why they should attend the
service? of God's house every Sabbath
"?Jod says: "13ring an offering and
come unto his courts; O worship the
Lord in the beauty of tbo holiness."
Are you the head of a family?
Ajjd do you regard your influence on

Self respect, nognnd for your own

By neglecting public worship, you
show yourself to be far from God,

will probably violate the Sabbath by
business, labor, travelling or pleasure
seeking; in short ii the devil finds you
neglecting the. service of Godt he will
certainly decoy you into his own.
Being in a Christian country, but

will make yourself a more absurd

More reasons might be given; but
are not these enough ? Will you es

regular and conscientious attendance
on the public worship of God? Will
you begin next Sabbath?" If from

Mr. Editor :
A stray nombcr of the news aud
times hnpened to fall into my handr
some time ago in it I noticed an
article from your corispondent from
lower Orange which oly bus reasons
he with holds his name aud well he
may: he might produce various rea
sons why he do not wish to be known
to the public I know him however by
his ear marks notwithstanding he
w ithholds his name, aud I happen to
know too that your corispondent from
lower Orange is one among a
good many others who pay no tax
not even their poll tax, nnd yet when
there is a tax levy to be made those
very fellows is the formost to vote the

New Yohk, July 18.
A Bismarck, Dakota, despatch, of
July 17, says : Sherman aud ?Sheridan
certainly underestimate the strength
of the hostile Indians. Sitting Bull's
band, before it was joined by Crazy
Horse, mi inhered 1,800 lodges? over
(5,000 effective lighting force; and
Crazy Horse has proven himself
strong enough to defeat Crook in
every engagement without.the aid of J
Sitting Bull. Colonel Burke, agent
at Standing Bock, who certainly is
well informed and not disposed to ex
aggerate their strength, estimates the
fighting force of the Sioux at 10,000;
and it should be remembered that
women and children are not elements
of weakness, for every nine year old
boy will handle a gun, stone, mallet
or bow to better advantage than a
majority of recruits handle their
muskets. The squaws do camp drud
gery, and are ready for battle, if their
services are needed. Sitting Bull's
Uuipnpns lost 150 and the other
bands nearly us many in Glister's
fight. Th? llccs at Fort Lincoln
mourned several days over Coster's
dcath| cutting themselves with knrvci
and exhibiting genuine Borrow in
other ways peculiar to Indians. One
refused to mourn, and in the wildest
manner called on Ouster's spirit to
drive the Sioux from the land, and
insisted that hi* brave band would do
it. Tlic fact that Ouster; though with
the expedition, and nominally in
command of his regiment, had no
command whatever until after Reno's
return from his fruitless scout of the
20th, has not been tnado public. His
regiment was divided into two wings
? the right under Kcno and the left
under Beuten; while Ouster was left
to wabble where he would, without
responsibility and without command.
Much of his time was spent with his
brothers and a few trusty men, hunt
ing and scouting op Iiis pwu account.
Generally he was with the advance,
but not iu command of it. Two or
three times he wait called upon to find
passes.-; through bud Ja-nds or moun
tains, and once Terry said no other
officer but Ouster could have uondue
ted the command through the diffi
culties which seemed insurmountable
so successfully. On the morning of
June 22, for the first time, Ouster was
given a command, end those who
know him do not wonder that he
tried to make most of it, and hazard
ed all in tlic attempt to conquer the
Sioux without assistance.
On Thursday next, six companies
of the 22d Regiment, two companies
of the 5th Infantry and 100 recruits
for tho 7th Cavalry will leave here j
under Colonel Otis, of the 22d Regi
ment, to reinforce General Terry. So
far, no troops have gono to his assist
ance. Four companies which were
I under his immediate command were
I promptly in motion, and have been
encamped here for several days. Un
| fortunately, Colonel Smith, General
Terry's Adjutant General, left Fort
Lincoln to return to the scene of j
operations the day before Colonel j
Otis arrived. As a result, the Colo- j
licl's command, which is largely com
posed of old Indian lighters, is chaf
ing under delay. However, every
thing is being put in order, and as
soon as the balance of the force ar
rives, Colonel Otis will advance.
The steamer Carroll arrived to-day,
and will return immediately with
reinforcements and supplies.
The condition of Geu. Ouster's
widow continues to be alarming.
During divine service at her house
yesterday she fainted, und remained
in aswoou for nearly an hour.

Love and Limburger.
TUE DlSTUEaSlXti HOAX TO WHICH A
SWAIN was SUJMECTKll.
Some months ago a youth of this
city on Sixth street,took a fancy to a
maiil.cn fair, and began to bo polite to
her. He met her when he could at
parties and that sort ofthing, and
occasionally he called to see her
at her home. She liked the young
.nan, and smiled sweetly when his
name was mentioned. His was
Agustus and slio was Mary Jane.
Augustus was not worth a cent finan
cially, but he had a capital of hope
that surpassed Ihc treasure of a sav
Mary Jane had a lather whose,
name was Jones, He didn't fancy
Augustus, and didn't like to have
him' spooning around Mary Jaue.
But be was a shrewd and sensible old
duller, and ho knew if he raised his
voice in opposition that Mary Jane's
liking would be strengthened into
regular red-hot, diamond pin, flat
footed love. Sq be kept still and
pondered, aud tliop he hit upon a
plau to smash the courtship of
Augustus inlo smithereens,
At the boarding house- whero
Augustus lived there lived also two
youths of his ago and sex, who were
as full of mischief as a caucus is of
seekers for office. So Papa Jones
went to them and unfolded his plans
and offered thnm ?10 apiece to bring
it to a successful end. Within a we?k
they had the money and this is the
way they earned it:
Augustus was to call on his Mary
Jane that evening, go of course he
put on h.is best clothes for the occa
sion. Half an hour before he went
to his room to dress, his friend's went
there and took his best coat from the
wardrobe; They ripped open the lin
ing between the shoulders and put.
inside a couple of very thin slices of
Limburger cheese. You know what
that is if you have any familiarity
with Gentian beer balls.
Augustus dressed and started for
old Jones' house, lie changed his
seat two or three times iu tho street
car, and when he reached the door
step be turned again and again, like
a dog about to lie down; but.t'was no
He usually occupied a scat on the
sofa a'. Mary .Jane's side; but that
evening she was inclined to dignity,
und occupied an arm chair a couple
of yards away. She went out twice
to dip her hankcrchief in cologne,
and the second time she brought the
bottle and offered Augustus some.
After he had gone home and
changed his clothes, one of the boys
took him out to walk while the other
restored the coat to its formci condi
But when three evenings later,
Augustus again visited Mary Jane,
the trick was repeated. Old Jones
had taken the trouble to hide the
cologne, so that the offence of the
Limburger could not be condoned;
The maiden stood it for half du hour,
then she fainted and called the old
folks. She was borne to her room,
aud Augustus sent home. Next
morning he received a highly per
fumed note, which told him that for
the future they had better be friends
only, aud the next time she met him
she hoped it would be in tho open
air, aud she would try to keep to
It is the cry of the infant, just from
the cradle; it is the only balm that
will heal the wounded heart in youth
ful days. "Mother, I'm hurt, "moth
er, I'm tired,"' "mother, sing to me,
rock me, tell hie stories." It is al
ways "mother" with the child aud the
lad. No one like mother. No band
that falls on the fevered brow as of
ten as hers; no words so sympathetic
as those that pass her lips. The
house would be a grave without net.
Life would be a dreary, thorny road
without her warning voice and guid
ing band. A father may be kind,
may love not less, but the wearied
child wants the mother's arms, her
soft lallaby songs; the caresses of her
gentle baud. All childhood is a
mixture of tears and joys. A kind
word brings a smile, a harsh word a
sigh, a fall is pain, a toes a joy. The
first footsteps, weak and trembling,
grow stronger by the guidance of a
The little wounds, the torn clothes,
the trials, all varnish at the words of
a mother, and there is built up in the
heart of every man an edifice of love
and respect that no crime of his can
topple down?no dungeon cell affect.
And a lad grows to be a man only
to find that "mother" is the same. If
he errs, she weeps; if he is good man
ly she rejoices. Hers is the uiily love,
that lasts?endures forever.
The wolle of starvation may cuter
the door, but her love is only tmd to
shine the blighter. All the world
may call her son a criminal, but the
mother only believes it not. Trials
may beset you, storms gather over
you, vexations come, ruin drag you
down, but there is one who stands
firm in your cause, who will never
leave you. The criminal on the
sea Hold has suffered in feeling be
cause his bad deeds would cause a
pang in mother's heart. The low

abode of sin. have died with the name
