nnder the circumstances, shows that
the days of true heroism have not yet

man; "nearly all here are young men, to
whom life is of vslne. I am seventy-fonr

Instantly dissipated by the noble, self-sacrificing
sentiment thus expressed. Captain

"When I received the- answer, a lump rose
in my throat as big as my fist; I couldn't

Harvey, a carpenter, Who bad previously
boarded at the house of a very estimublo
ludy, ou Seventeenth street. Now, this
Indy had a duughter, which is not a very
extraordinary circtnuNtunce, and thisdnngt-
ter had accepted John Harvey as Ilia one
with whom she was to travel through life
ith, not a very slrnnge circumstance
either, for John was a very handsome fel
low. The reception of the nows of the terrible
manuer of John s exit rrom tbe enrtli by
being shotnp a great distance into the air
aud coming down a piece or lilcless tlesh,
wus nn awlul blow to Uio altlanoed bride s
nerves, and Tor a time it wus douiitmi
whether she would survive the great lacer
ation of ber heart Time, however,
assuages tbe deepest grief, and the "out of
sight of ont the mind" process had so
healed the woumls of poor Addie s bosom
that three'inouths since she agreed to be
come tbe better half of another fellow, aud
the interesting event was lined for tbe
fourth of next month.
Judge of the surprise of the entire house

dead John come stulkiug into the bouse
just tbe same aa if his ulwence had beeu
one of hours instead of years. Mother was
astonished and Addio was confounded - the
dead bad come to life aud no mistake.
John, like a true philosopher, when inform
ed oi the situation that had taken place
during bis absence, said, "of course he
could now bave no claims, as his long ab
sencein the Wbito Pine Gold Mines had,
undoubtedly, lost bim all bis rights, and
be would return alone to the West, even il
his heart were to break." .
This was too much for poor Addie, tbe
old feeling was paramount, and she quietly
told John be could stay, aud the other fel
low could go out iuto tbe cold world and
bike his chances, and, like a faithful lover,
he obeyed, and on tbe fourth of next month
the wedding will take place as before ar
ranged, only John will be the groom in

said: I nntiee that most of the radical pa
lters in Albany aud Now York are asking
what will they do with it that Is, with the
victory ? I am hardly disposed to tell them
jnst yot I prefer to give them alittle time
to digont the returns, and when they are ful
ly digested, we propose to give them some
information as to what we will do with it,
In my observations I have found that knowl
edge suddenly acquired is never very profit
able, but I will tell tbera in general terms
one or two things w propose to do. ' We
propose tn make tho legislature nf the state
of New Y ork honest ; and that is wbat they
bave not done in some time. We propose
to liso the legislatures for the purpose of
promoting the interests of the mass of tbe
penplo and not the interests ot the few,
which the radioals bave not done in a long
time. The Evoning Journal has stated that
for many years there have been a few men
in the republican legislature who could be
bought Wo will show them that in a demo,
emtio legislature there will be nono of that
kind. We propose to give to the peoplo of
the state of New York all over, the right of
self-government We propose to abolish
snch laws as infringe upon rights of local!,
ties, and secure to them the right to govern
themselves. We will not almlish snch laws,
and give tbe people something worse: bnl
will give them better laws. We propose to
make the state of New Y ork and tbe gov
ernment in all its brauches thoroughly
democratic. I am aware of the responsi
bilities this victory Imposes npon me, ns
the executive of this state. I realize their
magnitude, and will not say I have no fear
of them, but by tho help of the peoplo and
their representatives, and all the good
counsel can get, I hope ill my sphere lo
so dischargs my dutios that tbe people will
approve my action.

Tur Chicago Times, in Rpouking ol the

The democracy in Wisconsin appear to
have let the election in that state go by de

more objectionable elements in it than any
that has beeu presented to the electors iu
that state for many years. Thousands of
republicans reluscd to voto font as appears
from the luct that tho ropuhlicau vote is
everywhere greatly I educed from what it
wus lust fall, liut the democratic vote Is
still more reduced, fi that the radical ma
jorities are actually greater thuu they wero
lust full. Democrats unquestionably have
the right to vote or uot to vote, as suite
them, but they oiejlit to know thut staying
away from the polls when the uniiopulurity
of opposing candidates is in their favor, is
not the way to achieve democratic success.

Summary Legal Proceedings.
Tbe Ceutral Culiforniau says:
Monterey county boasts of a Justice, an
easy, good-natured genius, who has an or
iginal wuy of doing things. The following
story is too good to be lost: Sometime
since the Judge, whom we shall call (! ,
met W , a member of tho legal frater
nity, nud the following dialogue ensued:
"W ," said the Justice, "I wish to ask a
little advice. Some time ago a Mexicau
owed me a debt, nnd ascertaining that be
was about to leave, I determined to bring
suit against him. There being uo other
Justice iu the district, I brought action be
fore myself. We had no coustabln, and I
served the summons. The day of trial
came on, nnd us I know ull the fV.ets iu the
case no witnesses were called, but I ren
dered judgment iu my own I'uvcr for the debt
and costs. Iu the abseuoa of tbe constable
I levied upon wbat property tbe Muiinau
had ordered to be sold. At the day ol the
sale uo one except myself uttended, and I
bought the property. The proceeds were
insullicieut to satisfy the Judgment und 1
seized the person of tbe Mexican and placed
him nt work making adobes for the balance.
Alter the 1 ipse of a day or two, F
wished to hire the Mexican; therefore he
gave mo bis note for the balance still due,
and I discharged the prisoner from cus
tody. Now souie of my neighbors think
that my proceedings wero irregular. 1 wish
to kuow your opinion. " Satisfied with tbe
grave assurance that no proceedings conld
be more "regular," our judicial representa
tive smilingly withdraw.

of copper has nearly slopped the exporta
