; "I should not advise any one
to go," said Case, quietly ; "my
brother once lived there but had
to leave, although his business
was the best in the country."
U "What, business -was he in ?"
"Lumbering had a saw mill

"Yes, and. saw logs, too." :
"Saw logs?", . '
"Yes, dozens of-black walnut
logs were spirited away tr car

upon my honor, sir. He tried
every i way to prevent it had
men hired to watch his logs, but
it was no use. . They would
whip them ; away as easy as if
there had been" nobody there,

bought : an allfired fine black
walnut log, four feet three at the
butt, and not a knot in it He
was determined to keep that log
anyhow, and hired three Scotch
men to watch it all night Well,
they took a small demijohn of
whisky with them, ; snaked the
log up to the side of the hill
above the mill, built a fire, and
then V sat- down to play ; cards,
just to keep awake you see.

Well, as 1 1 was saying, they
played cards and drank whisky
all night, and as it began to
grow light, went astraddle of the
log. About a minute after day

they were getting on, and the
log was gone." ; -,
What were the Scotchmen

down hill, and hitched a Yoke of

The . greatest . danger to the
Administration party, during the
next four years, will be found in
its unprecedented predominance
over all political opposition.
Having nothing in Congress that
can successfully prevent the pas
sage of any arbitaTy measure it
may see fit to inaugurate, it will
soon tire of a warfare that meets
no opposition sufficiently power
ful to practically accomplish any
thing, and thus will be led, like
ther fabled serpent,. 'tb 'fasten -its-fangs
of death f into its ;own vi
tals. ' So long ii Alexander had
nations to conquer he" was brave
and valiant, but when he "had
vanquished his last foe and met
no bannered armies to impede
his progress, he'. soon-lost the
power to govern himself and died
victim to; his own. excesses.
Nothing is more dangerous to
the existence of a political party
than too great an ascendancy of
political power; nothing is more
dangerous to republican institu
tions, as all history proves, than
the preponderance, to a great
degree, of political, power in the
ranks of a party organization.
Parties thus situated fall with
the . weight of self-bred corrup
tion, and only that .character of
public sentiment latent in all
government, above and beyond
the influence and designs of evil
men, can preserve the . unity of
civil institutions in such an
emergency. .We do not affirm
that the success of the Radical
party, in the election Tuesday,
November 5th, will be the means
of the destruction of the Union,
but we do affirm as our belief
that the unparalleled extent of
the victory it has gained will be
the death-knell of its distinctive
In his experiments to deter
mine the heat-conducting power
of linen, cotton, .wool, and silk,
Sir Humphrey. Davy found not
only that these ; materials 'con
ducted heat in the, order, given
above,' linen , being the best, but
also that the tightness or, loose
ness of , weaving ' possessed an
important influence. . It is there
fore evident in the selection of
winter clothing, , and especially
that to be worn -next to the
skin, the materials of , least con
ducting power, as wool and silk,
should be chosen, and the fabrics
should be loosely woven.;
As regards the external gar
ments the same rules apply with
equal force, but in this case care
should be taken to remove, over
coats, and shawls when in a
warm , room, especially should
this precaution: be observed in
the instance of the furs worn by
ladies. The habit of wearing
these articles for hours in suc

ing, often so weakens the power
of resistance in the wearers that
they become the ready victims
of inflammations of the throat
and lungs. To such an extent
does this occur in New . York
that many of. the most skillful
physicians advise their patients
to discontinue the use of furs,
