There is some speculation as tn what
Conlciing will Ao. lie is the insulted party
in the late senatorial tilt; and is expected
to vindicate himself. But he'll do nothin
of the kind. He'll not semi Lamar a chal
lenge, because he knows it will he accepted
' Ile'l! take iiis revenge by '-having no fur
ther communication with the gentleman
from Mississippi," which is certainly the
gater plan, if not the more sensible.
The Cleveland Herald, one of John
Sherman's organs say: "The latest turn
the Grant 'boom' lias taken is a proposition
to have a general and simultaneous boom
of arti'.ery in every city, town, village and
ham'.et in the country the moment the gen
eral sets foot on shore. It is a New Jersey
genius who has the honor of evolving this
intellectual scheme, and he cannot too soon
be recognized. He should be appointed
to a lieutenancy, at least, in the caravan
of idiots which is to go across the continent
to meet the traveler."
President Haves, listening to the clamor
of Eastern manufaurers who enrich them-
pt'lvt-s by giinding Jnhoring men into the
very earth, put "his veto upon the Anti
Ciiintse legislation of Congress, and pro
nounced it violative of one of the cardinal
principles upon which our governmental
structure is founded. Yet in the very face
of this veto, the Republican party of Cali
fornia, in State convention, assembled de
nounce Chinese emigration and the
presence of Chinese on the Pacific
coast, as an evil that calls lor
Congressional intericrence. Tho Chinese
urc denounced as a curse to California, as
they form an element with which d-.-cent
American laborers and mechanics cannot
compete. And that's Republicanism for you
all tilings to all nun, and consistent in
The unbiased reader will
much truth in the following extract: "Mr.
Congtr, the Michigan Thersites, became
enthusiastic in denouncing the bill prohib
iting the collection of money from the pub
lic officers for political purposes. Tins
measure Mr. Conger describes as "infam
ous," which was evidently a mistake. The
practice which the bill proposes to make
unlawful, is undoubtedly infamous. It hus
been a d if grace to the government too long,
and the whole country will applaud tho
; act which abolishes it. There is no more
justification tor taxing a department clerk
to support a lot of political truncheon
flourishes of the administration's party
than there would bo for levying upon the
, earnlnKB of a clerk in private employment
:" for the uuie purpose. If Mr. Conger's
pBrty can not continue' in existence without
. picking the pockets of government ' em
ployes it may as well die. Tho opposition
of Conger and the Republicans in the house
to the bill which proposes to abolish that
sort or larceny is nimply disgraceful."

the report is that ' Brows dogs Weston, as
Rowell did O'Lcary." Weston looks fresh,
betrays great vigor, and ' despite the odds
piled up against him, is confident of win

conceded that Weston would win the bet.
Thd army of Bolivia (one of the parties
to the tri-angular fight now going'fcn be
tween Peru, Chili and Bolivia) numbers
only 2,000 men, and is weighted down with
1,013 officers. Although Bolivia com
menced the war, Chili and Peru aro doing
all the fighting, and as the latter has the
larger army and navy the chances ars that
she will greatly aggrandize herself as well
in territorial acquisitions as in the exhibi
tion of military prowess. The fight is about
the right to work the guano and nitrate
deposits in the desert of Atacama which it
a part of the Bolivian territory. '
The Chicago Times says that one of Mr.
Conger's most strenuously-urged objections
to the bill prohibiting tho collection of po
litical assessments from persons holding
claims against tho government was that it
would deprive about a hundred thousand
eteran soldiers who claim arrears of pen
sions of the privilege of contributing to the
success of the party. This would be, he
thought, very sad. The poor fellows would
not even be allowed to stick up bills for
political meetings, and it is to be presumed,
the privation would break their hearts.
The introduction of this class of claimants
into the debate, and the manner of the
Michigan congressman's reference to them,
suggests the probability that they have
heretofore been subjected to the blackmail
ing operations of the party managers. If
there is any doubt of the the propriety of
passing the pending bill, Mr. Conger.s
speech should remove it. Nothing could
be more utterly urtamous than an attempt
to extort money or labor for political pur
poses from pensioners. That any black'
mailing politician would dare to make
such an attempt, unrter any circumstances,
could not have been even suspected but for
Mr. Conger's suggestive remark. If any
legislation is necessary to protect pension
claimants from an outrage so atrocious
congress should make haste to supply it.
Essay read by Mis Carrie C. Hawkins, during
the Graduating ExiTclfel of the Cuiro Ilili School,
Friday evening, June 13, 1SC9.
By far the most highly valued science
known to the ancient nations was Astrology,
or a system of discovering future events by
studying tie positions of the heavenly
It was received for many centuries as a
true and most important branch of knowl
edge, though it has now lcbt all credit
among civilized nations.
. Out credulous ancestors saw nothing ab
surd in the claims of Astrology.
Trophctic power was supposed to he com
mon. The people imagined that indications of
coming events were abundant, and it was
presumed that these signs might be fully
understood by those who devoted their
lives to the stuJy.
Tho general mode of procedure in find
ing the fate of any man or enterprise, w;is
t ) draw a horoscope representing the posi
tions of the stars and planets in the whole
heavens, or within one degree above the
eastern horizon, at the time of the birth of
the Individual, or tho inception of the un
dertaking. Arbitrary significations were given to
dillerent heavenly bodies, as they appeared
singly or in conjunction : according to these
the horoscope was interpreted.
Years weru required for the mastery of
the horoscope, und absurd us its fundamental
principles appear, its details were not in
consistent with e:ich other, and the whole
system has a completeness which appears
very singular in a scheme so visionary.
All graduates standing on the threshold
of new scenes, would like in the same
munmr, to look into the future and see
what it may have in store for them.
Although modern common sense
forbids us to believe in or seek such knowl
cugc i rum renmng ine stars, yet nope and a
shrewd reading of tho signs of the times
may take its place.
We have at last finished our school
course, but after leaving Behool we by no
meaiiH think our education finished, but
only just begun.
Our course of study has only given us a
glimpse of what remains yet td be learned.
Some of tho class expect to go on with
their studies in some other school; but
those of us who can not do so, anticipate
great pleasure iu continuing the subjects
that we havo merely touched upon here.
In literature we have onlycaught a glimpse
of what pleasure muy bo derived from tho
ntudy of the writers who have so wonder
iu'.ly et.mhcd our language. In mental
philosophy we wish to investigate more
fully tho psychological problems which we
have only heard about; to learn more lully

We hope to visit the birth places of many
of the great poets and writers whoso ac
quaintance we havo made. Wo want to
.n Rfratford-uopn-Aron; tho email but
charming English town whoso undying re
nown lies in the fact of its being the birth
place of Shakespere.
While there wo must visit his grave and
6ce the famous bust of the great poet.
Time will not permit mo to enumerate half
the objects and places we wish to see in
England; we must not tail, to visjt the
famous old tower in which Sir Walter
Raleigh wrote his history of the world, and
where so many of England's nobility, as
well as members of the royal family, ' have
languished till death came to their relief.
We must see, also, Westminister Abbey and
stand by the tombs ol the greatest poets,
statesmen and heroes England has ever pro
duced. We shall ulso desire to visit Scotland and
sco for overselves tho lovely scenery so
beautifully described by Sir Walter Scott.
Wlien we have travelled so far, we cannot
resist crossing tho continent to see Paris
and Switzerland, the Alps and Rome.
We intend collecting specimens for our
geological cabinets, am examine the great
boulders and rocking stones, Fingal'g Cave,
and all those interesting places we have
studied about, you will ask, perhaps, how
we expect to fiud the means for all this
We expect to earn it ourselves! There
arc many different ways of doing this, and
no two of us will have the same way. Our
class has chosen the name of Opera; or
workers, and in spite of the cry of "no
work" which hus been echoing through the
country so long, we expect to find plenty to
do, and haven't a doubt that our work will
be really needed.
The olt-quoted saying that "there is
room at the top "is true and we believe that
climbing, is good exercise.
To be sure, we hardly expect to stand on
the top of the ladder, but there are many
niches oa the way up, waiting to be filled;
and we are persuaded that "He who goes to
work with energy and perseverance, will
set every obstacle in the way of his success
L Hying like leaves before a whirlwind !"'
and as Robertson says "It it is not so far as
a man doubts, but so fur as he believes that
he can achieve or perfect anything. All
things are possible to him that believeth."
After classes graduate, they often fail to
carry out their plans lor study on the plea
that they cannot find time; but I am sure
they have "all the time there is," and if we do
not find time for certain things, it must be
because we allow something else to be put
Something is always being "crowded
out'' of the busiest lives, but what that may
be depends entirely upon the choice of the
We shall devote our time to study and
our chosen occupation in preference to
novel-reading or fancy-work; thus fitting
ourselves to occupy places in society and
making our, lives useful in numerous ways.
I do not pretend to say th.it our class is
a model class or that we never read novels.
By no means, but we are persuaded that
life 13 something more seiious than is im
plied in seeking only to get through with
it in the easiest possible wiy.
It is something more real, und we will
indulge in fiction only so fur as we find it
really helpful to nobie living; and in fancy
work ami parties as occasional recreation
rather than the main business of lite.
We have now presented to you our day
dreams, and is there any reason why we
may not hope for their fulfillment?
We have been told all through our
course, what great advantages we were en
joying, and we naturally expect that such
advantages will produce correspondingly
wonderful fruit. Is there any ictison why
the expectations of the girls even, should be
limited in these days?
We hear continually that every path to
success is open to women, and of many
who are teadiug them successfully.
Our life-work has only just begun end
we go out in the wide world not knowing
what joys or sorrows it may have in store
We would like to be able to read the fu
ture; but were we permitted to do so, are
wd sure wo would havo courage to go on?
Doubtless it is a blessed thing for us that
we are not permitted to read in the book of
fate what is in store for us.
Let us rather seek to be ready for what
ever may come, knowing ctainly that
