O for one hour of .Tames G. Blaine in
tbe United-States senate yesterday! There
was somebody wanted there to paint it to
the brigadier generals of conquered
treason that they don't yet own the United
States of America.
Seth V. Brown of Warren county, the
young man who scooped Dr. Scott, is one
of the gritty Republican members of the
Ohio house. Mr. Allen O. Myers got
tangled with him in debate a day or two
ago, and came out with the nose-bleed.
A gentleman out at Leadville tried on
Tuesday to explore the other world with a

He had written a long explanation, say

There is a small fleck of blood on the
moon down in the Orphans' Home at
Xenta. The superintendent and -the
financial officer do not agree; in fact,
they are so horniswoggled with each other
that one or the other of them will hare to
get out immediately.
The Commercial Gazette bids the legis
lature beware of petitions for the abandon
ment of the public works of Ohio, saying
that they tn-an a railroad job in Cincin
nati. Yet, till there is such abandon"
ment, there will always be abandoned fel
lows jobbing about them.
Ryan of Scioto has made our kind of
bid for the governorship of Ohio. If his
bill for arbitration in trade disputes is any
thing like near the thing, he is our nomi
nee. But his bill, we are afraid, contem
plates too much voluntariness. Arbitra
tion of this kind must be compulsory, or it
is no good.
The improvement in prices of local se
curities in Cincinnati is n pretty good
sign of the upward turn of things. Little-Miami

The Edmunds bill for the appointment
and retirement of Grant as General of tbe
Army, notwithstanding tbe opposition of
little Cockrell, went through the senate
handsomely yesterday. It got 49 to 9.
Tbe 9 should go off and drown themselves.
Among these was our delectable Geo. H.
Pendleton. George will undoubtedly have
some very gentlemanly constitutional
reasons for his vote.
If this Mr. Clarkson, of the Republican
national committee and of Iowa, who is
throwing out such positive assertions
about St. John, and whom Prohibition
Comtmttee Finch brands as a willful, ma
licious liar, does not hurry up with some
proofs of his assertions, the people of the
United States will pretty soon conclude
that Finch's brand is the genuine trade
mark. We have had about enough of
Clarkson's awful insinuations.
The bill "to provide cheap school books
for the people and protect them from mo
nopolies" has the right sort of title. Mr.
Fierce, from whatever county this Fierce
man comes, deserves commendation for
introducing the bill in tbe house. And
Mr. Baker's bill, with a like object in
view, is a symptom of contagion of public
sentiment in the legislature. The school
children of the state should be supplied
with books at cost of publication. Let
the legislature be watched in this matter.
The Swaim proceedings day before yes
terday blazed cut in a little sensation.
Grosvernor put some noisiness into tin
case. Swaim, it seems, had been asked if
be was wounded at Chickamnuga, and re
plied that he was; and all the resources ot
the war department had then been availed
of to get evidence to prove that Swaim lied
about his alleged wound. Grosvenor ex
pressed his opinion of this as follows:
"It is the smallest piece of business God
Almighty ever allowed anybody to go
into." And Sbellabarger said that it
"should excite in the mind of any honest
man feelings of unutterable and inexpres
sible indignation." We-are afraid that
both Grosvenor and Sbellabarger overdid
the "unutterable and inexpressible"; but
anything to give us a little shock on
Young Blaine, James G.'a con, took ex
ceDtion to some disparaging remark that
a young dude had made about hit father,

It is given out from New York with a
great deal of confidence that no jury can
be found in New York to convict Short,
the Fenian butcher, of the awful slashing
ol Phelan's body. Why ? Is New York
in the absolute possession of assassins ?
Colfax's death brings his illustrious
past back to memory. He had shared
the fate of most politicians. He had out
lived his fame. But his sudden decease
recalls his genial, kindly, lovable nature,
and makes us forget his one or two little
failings. Peace to his ashes.
Our Littler's resolution on printing is to
correct a standing nuisance in both houses
of the legislature. When a printer gets a
contract for public printing, he at once
takes on airs of owning the literature ol
the state. We hope Littler will succeed
in bringing the public printer to taw.
It is complained that Hon. James
Walker, representative of Logan county,
is absent too much from the house, and
there is talk of calling him to account for
it. Never mind, James will be there
enough to get in more bills than both
bouses can get through in one session.
The Tichborne claimant is going to lec
ture in America. He is an interesting
big beefy person who has been in prison
three years for attempting to claim the
Tichborne estate in England as the long
lost son of the family. The only attrac
tion he can have for an American audi
ence is the claim that he has bluer blood
in him than he looks to have.
There is no other writer in our language

The abolition of tbe internal-revenue tax
on whisky and tobacco would necessitate
the lowering of the import tax on foreign
products in order to bring them in to
swell the revenue. But the bringing-in of
foreign products at a lower tariff would put
them in competition with home products,
and thus injure American industry. Let
whisky and tobacco continue to pay tbe
nation for tbe luxury of being.
KITECTIVK UErOKM WORK.
There is always a necessity for reform
works at all times and in all places,
by all people lit to perform it. Poor hu
man nature needs reforming and im
proving, and the right spot for reform work
to be done is at the nearest possible place
to the locality of the person who proposes
to do it. It is the easiest work in the
world to fire of! reformatory proclamations,
and hold meetings, and make speeches, or
write articles lor newspapers, all aimed at
the general public, that is to say, at no
body in particular. But tbe man who is
really in earnest in reforming people usu
ally, if be is wise, begins with himself, and
if he makes thorough work of it, has a ter
rible and most discouraging tussle, but he
is sure to come out of the battle with a
good deal of charity toward other people
who have not "reformed," and with broad,
generous views as to humani'y in general
And this man, keeping in mind what he has
gone through personally, will have a good
deal of patience as to others, and he
will not commence scolding, and de
nouncing, and bulldozing; most as
suredly will he refrain from putting
on airs on account of his own good
ness or superiority. Both men and com
munities must be reached, by reformers,
first, by their own personal example and
lives which must be in spirit and act
above reproach and, second, by argument
and persuasion. No man was ever made
better by being denounced, cr even by be
Then, after one has acquired the grand
personal qualities and experience of a true
reformer, he should, as we have already
suggested, commence work at once on the
material nearest to him. If he cannot
help bis own neighbors and townspeople to
better ways of thinking and doing, he
might as well suspeud operations; and
it may readily be inferred from this
that professional and paid reform
ers, who go about the country
dealing out uncharitable insinuations and
assertions, and firing off invectives, if
not expletives, ferociously and indiscrim
inately, at people, are persons who do
very little good. They may gratify the
ears of the groundlings, who always like
to hear people abused, and they may
please men of like minds and spirits who
listen to them, but they make very few
converts. We do not need to cite illustra
tions to prove what we say. Erring peo
ple must be approached as "men and
brethren" men of "like passions" with
ouiselves, and the sole purpose of the re
former must be to help other people to re
form not to frighten them or drive them
into tbe "fold ol safety." Earnest fra
ternal work of true reformers among the
masses of the people in their homes, by
the utilization of example, precept, sug
gestion and persuasion, is work tbat will
not make much noise in the world, or
elicit applause from multitudes, but it will
be effective; it wiil convince men, and
win them, and aid them in the right d -rection.
Reformers should go further
back than Wendell Phillips for models,
they should go to the greatest and most
succeslul of all reformers, the only true
exemplar, whose influence has spread
from Bethany, Gethscmane and Calvary,
throughout the world and down through
all the ages of time.

Fashion and Gond-llroedlnc Dictate the
Ton In Perfumes How to Make
Beautiful Piano Covers.
For are Iss rashlonnblo This Season
Than In the Past Two Ways to
Perfntnc3 fake their tono from our
fashions and changes in the samo man
ner as the details of our toilet, shades,
forms, trimmings, etc. We have seen
ylang-ylang succeed violet; then softer
odors, such as new mown hay, spring
flowers, etc, becamo all tho rage, at
this moment tho most fasbibnablo
scents aro very strong and intensive,
for instanco oppopanox, and kiss-me-quick,
but many contain a strong pro
portion of musk, and therefore women
of delicate taste do not accept them,
like everything else in dress or fashion
which is eccentric or exaggerated, and
not elegant or recherche."
Scents aro in general the accompan
iments of elegance and good breeding;
a delicious perfume gives that charm
ing "something" distinguishing really
ladyliko feelings and disposition, and
giving a distinguished presence to man
or -woman, when chosen or adopted
with senso and discretion.
Many of our elegantes employ but
one perfume for theii' toilet-table, hand
kerchief, and apartment, thus not only
aro the linen, dresses, otc, scented in
this exclusive manner, but such a lady
will have her toilet soaps, tooth pow
der, pomades, oils poudre do riz, cos
metics, pastilo burner, and arom vine
gar actio impregnated with this one
perfume. - Sometimes two odors are
oven adopted, ono for the toilet, one
for tho appurtenances of tho dressing
or morning room; yet it is very diffi
cult, and requires great taste and caro
to chooso between two opposite) per
fumes, so that both may agree to a cer
tain extent together and tho perfumo
not too strong, which must bo avoided
above all things as having a tingo of
vulgarity and giving a faint air to tho
Wo had almost forgotten to mention
tho fashionable whito heliotrope, that
most delicious of all modern scents,
which is now the tip-top of elegance,
but as this perfume has a tendency to
sweetness, we should adviso our read
ers to use an infinitely small quality, or
it will be overpowering. Sets of arti
cles for the toilet table and washing
stand, also bath-room wero shown us
not long since at two of our most fash
ionable perfumers, and among other
novelties wo could not help remarking
tho elegant littlo scented ivory knick
knacks prepared for a young lady's
dressing-room, to bo packed for tho
continent in a few days; among other
things wero most exquisito sachels of
plush and ivory with gold embroidery,
also glove boxes, scent bottles, etc., to
match, but what surprised us most was
a set of mourning articles, tho proper
ty of a young widow of high distinc
tion by whom thev had been ordered;
the charming delicate effect of black
velvet and satin on a white or shining
black beaded ground, and vice versa,
is not to be described, one sachet was
of delicate drab with black bugles and
a cut glass scent bottle ornamented
with jet and ivory. The Season for

A satin, quite good enough for fancy
work, now comes in all the new anil
beautiful shades at only 50 cents ayard,
while mixed embroidery silks cost 2o
cents a small box, and 50 cents for the
larger sizes. Silk plush is much used
forliamlsome articles, but that mater
ial is expensive, costing from $1.50 to
$1 ayard, and silk velvet, too, is high
priced; nevertheless theso goods aro
Table covers are made of plusjj, vel
vet, and velveteens, but cloth is per
haps more popular, and that must le
in one of tho plain colors, either neu
tral or a dark shade, and this cost
from S'2 to $5 a yard for desirable qual
ities; if, however, the cloth is only to
servo as foundation, then a cheaper
grade can be used, as it only shows now
and then, in small spaces, between tho
appliqued bits of velvet or silk or the
other supplied designs, whatever they
may consist of. A rich cover is of
plain, leather-colored cloth, bordered
with a band of copper-colored plush,
headed by an ivy-leaf vine, with autumn-tinted
leaves, hand embroidered.
Very stylish piano and table covers
and scarfs aro linished with Kursheedt's
novelties in fancy braids, put on in
bands or in quaint designs, Theso ex
ceedingly decorative braids aro made
in various widths and odd patterns and
are largely used to trim costumes and
dresses. One is a stripod tinsel braid
in basket design, another has diagonal
lines in silver and gold, alternating
with thoso in any favored hue. Then
co,mo the plaid tinsel braids, which
shows the tinsel, gilt or silver, running
in rail-fence lines across the handsomo
braid. A plush mat, for standing un
der a lamp, is bordered with three rows
of Nandyko braid and finished off at
the end with silk tasel with threads of
gold; Red, old gold, and green aro
favorite shades for plush.
Exceedingly handy for ladies who
have neither time nor tasto for em
broidery aro the beautiful floral designs
ready to bo anulied. Exuuisite wreaths.
panslos, or wild rosos aro mounted ou
tissue paper for convenience, and small
er pieces consist of sprays, llowers, or
buds. In Kursheedt colored silk-embroidered
appliques there aro hundreds
of beautiful designs, not only in bor
derings and center pieces of blossoms,
but in bright-hood birds and butter
flies, with initial letters formed of llow
ers in natural colors. Tiie-o finish tid
ies, scarfs, mats, and toilet sets. Phil
runs roil wraps.
Fur wraps have had a set-back this
season, and tho furriers have about lost
heart. Tho fact of the matter is tho
ladies aro not buying furs, for thero are
so many natty mantels and decidedly
French- littlo jackets, to mako no allu
sion to tho cozy and very becoming
English-cut Newmarkets, that tho
handsome seal and beaver cloaks aro
positively ignored. Thoso who havo
fur coats havo had them altered and
retouched for stormy weather, but with
such charming sunny days as wo aro
now enjoying the long fur cover-coats
do not have a ghost of a show on tho
boulevards. .Manufacturers havo been
lengthening tho wraps until they havo
actually "run them into tho ground."
The street suits of tho day aro lovely.
They are not only fit but they aromado
by experts, from'tho very best kind of
material, and look genteel. Now, this
class of dresses cost never a penny less
than $90. the average being s200; and
as tho ladies who can afford to wear
such gowns are also tho only ones who
are able to buy $.'100 seal wraps, it is
asking too much of them to cover up
such an outfit even if tho blanket bo
an Asiatic seal. Auother thing: tho
woman of fashion does not lio who
really admires a fur sacqne, for it plays
havoc with the liguro unless there is
considerable stature. Women who aro
graceful in a postilion jacket almost
waddlo in a seal s.acque, while a dol
man converts her into an animated tub.
Xo; skins are dead as far as ultra-fashionables
aro concerned, but for all that
the women who can least afford such
raiment will pinch and mortify them
selves and deprive their family of many
creature comforts for tho possession of
a long genuine seal sacquo. For tho
carriage a skin is as good as a base
burner; it has no substitute as an even
ing wrap to and from entertainments,
and when the mercury get below grado
it is a snug garment to shop or visit in.
Here are two ways to knit mittens:
One way is to cast on 72 stitches, knit
back and forth, like a garter, making
a stitch on tho finger end until there
are 81, then unit 8 or 10 times across
without widening, then narrow down
to the original 72 stitches, then widen
to 82 stitches, knit 8 or 10 times with
out widening, then narrow to 72 stitches,
then narrow off and take up 17 s'.itches
for thumb, leaving 24 for wrist, widen
on one side of thumb, narrow on tho
other until long enough, then narrow
on both sides until narrowed off, then
sow together and turn right sido out.
Another way is to cast on about 72
stitches, 24 on each needle, knit 2 purl
until wrist is long enough, then start
thumb, knit 1. knit second by putting
the needle in tho back of the stitch, it
twists every other stitch, it looks as if
seamed. More stitches aro needed on
tho wrist, as it is more liko a doublo
mitten in the hand. In making tho
thumb I knit 3 times around, between
each time I mako stitches, then I mako
2 on each side, leaving 1 plain stitch
between tho seamed stitches and tho
made stitches; I throw tho yarn over,
thon take up a stitch at tho samo time,
knit as long as needed, tho narrow off
as in other directions. Mrs. James

Mrs. Gen. Gaines.
Gen. Gaines, familiarly known as
"tho Hero of Fort Erie," was not
pleased when Gen. Scott was promoted,
although he was then upward of 80
years of age. and unfit for military
duty. Tall, spare, and erect, with
snow-white hair, and keen eyes, ho pre
sented a striking contrast to his small,
vivacious, and energetic wife, who was
at that timo commencing ono of the
most celebrated of tho causes celebres
of tho United States. Amiable, cour
teous, and affectionate, Mrs. Gaines bo
camo a heroic litigant, and went from
court to court seeking to establish her
rights as the lawful heir of her father,
Daniel Clark. Air. Clark was, in his
day, one of the most ambitious young
men of Now Orleans, who divided tho
coniidcnco and respect of tho people
with Gov. Claiborno. Ho was a high
spirited, ambitious young Irishman,
full of energy, and wealthy. Embark
ing in politics, ho was elected tho first
delegato to congress from Louisiana,
when he forgot tho vows to his wife,
who had not, at tho timo of his mar
riago to her, been divorced from her
first husband, a confectioner named Do
Grange. Their child wa3 ilyra Clark,
subsequently Mrs. Gaines. At Wash
ington he becamo infatuated with, tho
beautiful Miss Caton, of Baltimoro, and
ho returned to New Orleans determined
to havo his niarriago with Alma Do
Grange pronounced illegal, that he
might wed Miss Caton. Pecuniary em
barrassment fortunately arrested this
resolve, and induced a fatal sickness,
during which ho repentod, and sought
to mako reparation to Myra by making
a will in her favor, in which ho ac
knowledged her as his legitimate daugh
ter. When, shortly afterward, he died,
this will could not be found, but a pre
vious ono was produced which contain
ed no recognition of Mvra. Under this
will his real cstato in tlio city of New
Orleans was administered on and sold.
Nor did his daughter Myra, then a
child, know anything about her paren
tage and history until sho had grown
up and become'tbo wifo of Mr. Whit
ney. Sho at once commenced the pros
ecution of her claim to be recognized
as tho legitimate daughter and heiress
of Daniel Clark. This she continued,
and when, after the death of Mr. Whit
ney, Gen. Gaines addressed her, she
consented to bebome his wife only af
ter he had promised to second her liti
gation. The great number of persons
interested to defeat her, and their largo
means, rendered the contest apparent
ly a most unequal one, But what has
been wanting in means, inlluonce, and
array of great legal talent has been
made by the singular heroism, perti
nacity, patience, and indomitable will
of this remarkable lady. lien: Perley

Tho details of a tragic romance com
from Madison, Wis., and. although no
names are given, tho story is vouched
for as being absolutely "true. Yoars
ago, when the gold fever was at its diz
ziest height in tho land of the sunset, a
voung Wisconsin miller set out to make
Lis fortune on tho Pacific slopo. He
was young, robust and ambitious. He
soon had a stroke of luck nnd amassed
quite a snug littlo fortune in tho gold
fields. Ho married a San Francisco la
dy and they lived happily until a son
and daughter had been born to them.
Then troublo arose in the happy home,
which resulted in tho father abandon
ing his family, after gathering together
the bulk of Lis wealth, and returning
to Wisconsin, settling near his former
homo, a few minutes walk from Madi
son. Ho purchased a mill and for
awhilo pursued tho even tenor of his
This was twenty years ago. Ho nev
er told any one of "his unhappy matri
monial adventure in tho far est, and
not even tho few relatives ho had Knew
anything about his life on tho Pacific
coast. Two years after his return ho
married a very bo uitiful young woman,
and, to all appearances, they lived very
happily. Tho wifo nover suspected
that her husband had not been all ho
pretended to be. In timo a daughter
and son wero born. Tho daughter is
now almost grown, and is said to bo
unusually bright and good looking, and
tho son is a manly fellow 16 years old.
For a scoro of years the husband's ter
riblo secret was known only to himself,
and tho abandoned family had long
sinco mourned him as dead.
A few weeks ago tho young lady
wont to tho postollico for tho mail, as
was her custom. Sho received a letter
for her father. It was a lady's hand
writing and boro tho San Francisco
postmark. Tho father read tho letter
amid muchoxcitcmont and hastily stuck
tho epistle in his pocket. Tho pro
ceeding was so unusual that ho attract
ed tho attention of tho family. A few
days later tho daughter found tho let
tor in a nook wbero her father had hid
den it. It was from tho abandoned
wife. Sho said that sho had by tho
merest accident just heard that tho
man who had marriod her was alivo
and well, and asked if tho report was
truo. She said if it was sho would join
him as soon as she could possibly mako
tho journey. Tho horrified daughter
ut onco went to her father and charged
him with his crime. Tho man was
completely humiliated and begged his
child most piteously not to tell her
mother tho contents of tho letter which
sho had accidently found. Tho father
promised to right tho great wrong ho
had done tho two women at tho earliest
possiblo moment. Tho next day ho
was found dead in his stable, having
shot himself through tho head. Tho
grief-stricken and scandalized family at
onco sent tho news of his death to Cal
ifornia. Tho telegraph merely an
nounced tho tragic event a short
time ago. The details havo just
croppeilout. Two or three days ago
the miller's valise, packed as if for a
journey, was found under a pile of hay
in tho stable. This leads to the suppo
sition that the man had at first con
templated flight rather than face tho
disgrace of an exposure. It is said tho
California wife will shortly visit Wis
consin and claim a part of the rich mil

Tho prejudices rfgainst Americans do
lot exist merely in tho minds of tho ig
lorant and uneducated, but aro quito
is frequently found among tho "upper
:lasscs," tho well-educated, and even
.he leaders of thought viz., tho clergy
md the journalists. Many superficial
observers, especially Americans who
risit this country for'a temporary "out
.ng" and remain hero a few days or
few weeks, will writo home stating that,
:ho "better class" of Mexicans aro very
'ond of Americans; that they always
'reat them with great deference and
iro the politest people in tho world.
Those foreigners who know tho Mex
cans best tell me and I believe it to
oo true that the Mexicans havo a
jreat delicacy in concealing from you
'.heir real sentiments when it is consid
sred by them politeor prudent to do so,
jnd hence you cau never gather from
'.heir conduct toward you in personal
flterviews what their real sentiment
oward you is. Personally, I liko this.
For if a man hates you, "or is antip
athetic you, it is far more agrceablo
Jo havo im conceal that fact wucn you
ire brought in close contact with him,
'.hough, of course, more dangerous to
you oftentimes. This same trait is
rerynoticeablo in most French men and
Tho American and tho Englishman,
javo when "refined" by contact with
French people, aro usually quite the re
verse moro brusque, moro blunt, less
courteous as far as outward graces and
polish are concerned, and far moro
truthful, genuine, and to bo relied up
n than any of the Latin races. I find
tho highly-cultured and polished Mexi
cans exceedingly agreeable people to
meet, to converse with, to be entertain
ed by, but there is a constant feeling of
their insincerity being impressed upon
me, both while in their presence and after
leaving them a feeling that they do
not like us becauso we are Amoricans,
because they erroneously regard us as
desiring to wrong them, to overreach
them (or their fellow-countrymen) in
trade, to spread a religious . opagan
da throughout their country, swallow
ing up and overthrowing tho power of
the long-established national faith, and
even that our nation has aggressive de
signs upon their country and will soon
er or later swallow it up, merging it in
to our union and thus destroying their
patria and making of it a mero tie
pendency of the United States. Of
course I'know that any cultured Mexi
can of whom you may ask: "Is this
true?" will n't once "earnestly nply:
"No! it is quite an error to believe any
such absurdity as that." Hut denials
provo nothing. The true way to learn
tho real sentiment of Mexicans in this
regard is to judge them by their writ
ings as fouud in their newspapers, re
views, and books, and by their actions,
which do, indeed, speak louder than
words. Cor. iSan Francisco Chronicle.
I never heard of such astounding ig
norance before in the whole course of
my life, excepting on one occasion,
and that was three years ago, and a
fellow Senator was tlie frightful exam
ple. Iroquois had won the English
Derby and we Kentuckians naturally
felt proud of the success of the Ameri
can racer abroad, and awaited with
breathless anxiety for news from Franco
that would tell us of the victory or de
feat of the Kentucky-bred Foxhall, who
was entered for tho grand prize of
Paris. The day of the raco I opened
up my newspaper and looked for tho
Paris date lino the lirst thing. I was
overjoyed to llnd that Foxhafl had in
deed won, and sent a page for Senator
Allison. When he came over to my
desk I pointed to tho Paris telegram,
and asked him to "read that." Ho read
tho paragraph and calmly expressed
his gratification over the victory. Af
ter he had run on awhile he paralyzed
mo by the inquiry: "Was it a trotting
or running race that Foxhall won?"
Imagine my feelings. Words could
not express thorn. I fell back in my
chair speechless, and didn't speak to
tho Senator from Iowa in two weeks.
