"Dmocbacy la 8 sentiment not to bo appalled,
corrupted or compromised. It knows no basone s.
cower to no danger, oppresses no wcakne t . Fear
less, generous ind humane. It rebukes the arrogant,
cherishes honor, and sympathise with the bumble.
It ak nothing but what it concede; it concede
nothing but what It demand. Destructive only of
despotism, H 1 the ole conservative of liberty, la
bortud property. It I the sentiment of freedom,
of equal obligation. It is tho law of naturo per
vading the law of the land. Tho stupid, the el
fish, the base In eplrit may denounce it a a vulgar
thing; but la the history of our race the Demo
cratic principle has developed and illustrated the
highest moral and intellectual attribute of our
nature. Ye, this is a noble, magnanimous, a sub
lime sentiment, which expands onr affections, en
larges the circle of onr sympathie and elevate the
onlofman until, claiming an equality with tho
bet, he rejects as anjvorthy of his dignity any po
litical immunities over the humblest of bis fellow.
Yes, It is an ennobling principle; and may that
i plrit which animated our father in the Revolution

mate u, their on, in tho impending etrugclo for
Its preservation." WILLIAM ALLEN.
Four rennsylvanians, named Drew,
Brandt, Huruniel and Sticher, living near
Heading, concocted a plan about a year
ago, for swindling an insuranco company
outof ten thousand dollars. They 6ecured
that ainonut of insurance on the life of an
old man named Raber. Before the second
payment became duo they chucked old Ru
ber in a puddle of water and held hira un
der until he was drowned. Itwa9 a badly
managed affair. The insurance company
managed to uncover all tho horrible de
tails, and tho speculative quartette not only
failed to get the ten thousand, but are con-
tcmplating the prosjicct of being swung
from the gallows into the mysterious bourne
into which they sent old Ruber. Drew will
bo hanged next Friday, and has confessed
the whole fiendish proceeding.
Wuen it commenced raining in St.
Louis, last Monday, ten boys playing near
the track of the Iron Mountain road be
tween Tark avenue and Miller street, took
refuge under a neighboring freight train.
They had been there but a short time when
a switch train was backed against the
cars under which thev were seated. They
were first apprised of their danger by seeing
the car move. Six of the boys scrambled
out and escaped injury, but the remaining
four were caught and badly crushed, two
of them fatally. Nobody's to blamo for
this shocking occurrence, but tho boys
themselves; but the affair certainly suggests
tho necessity of further precautionary
measures on the part of the railroaders.
Tho company certainly should require that
trains left stauding, as this had been, on the
streets of a city, for many hours in suc
cession, should not be moved until tho men
in charge satisfy themselves by personal
inspection, that no damago will ensue to
cither person or property.' Had the brake
man or switchman taken tho trouble to
wsure himself that everything was clear,
the distressing accident described would
not have occurred.
Jeuuy Goldsmith, of Atlanta, Georgia,
is a trifling, shiftless young man whom
everybody regards with indifference or din
trust ; but that there Is true heroism in his
nature, the facts detailed below sufficiently
establish. At picnic on Stone mountain,
last Sunday, little Emma Joues, only bi
yearsof age, icil over the urountaiu precipice
that hits the dizzy perpendicular of sixteen
hundred feet. The child caught on a ledge
of rocks, and by slicking her fingers in tho
crevices maunged to hold on until an alarm
was carried to tho town, threo miles off.
At once stores wcio closed, houses locked,
rind tho whole population, with feverish
haste, hurried to tho mountain. Tho child
was fifty feet below tho brink, having slid
rather than fell outright. Sho was con
siderably bruisod, and told, by her enfeebled
cries that her strength was about exhausted.
Ropes wero brought; but who would des
ceud? Tlio young, tho middle aged, tho
white and black, shuddered at the thought
of such peril. At this jnncturo Jerry
Goldsmith came to the ground, and with
sneers of contempt for tho appalled crowd
adjusted tho rope about his middle, ami
giving orders as to its management, swuug
over the fearful preclpico, and reached the
child at tho instant its hold relased, and
brought it safely into tho midst of the ex
cited throng on tho mountain top. It was
a bravo, a glorious thing for Jerry Gold
smith to do, and hereafter, in counting
over the heroes of Atlanta, his name is en
titled to conspicuous mention.
Tiik Philadelphia papers were sorely
tried when the news went out that Dixon
had been killed by Barksdale, because he,
Dixon, persisted in running for an office
that somebody else wanted. The dispatch
received by them was dated Jackson,
Michigan, and located tho tragedy in Yazoo
City, Michigan. Tho appalled Faber driv
ers itched all over to denounce the infernal
outrage; but the annoying fact stared them
in the face that its venue was in the r.fci
pant Republican State of Michigan, where
everything is ' supposed to be shaped
nccording to the high moral
ideas of modern stalw.irtisru. Their better
natures- prompted them to stigmatize the
affair as a damnable outrage; but to heed
these promptings would place the Repub
lican State of Michigan in a most unenviable
light before the public. Governed by thi
consideration, the telegraphic account oi
the tragedy was published ; but net a sing'.e
Republican in the Quaker City indulged In
a single word ot reproof, deprecation or
denunciation. Next day, however, dis
patches were received, bearing the correct
date line "Jackson, Mississippi""
and then the way in which
these conscicntcus PUiadelphucs
pitched into the damnable "Deniocr-tic
butchery," was simply amazing. Their en
tire catalogue of vituperative adjectives was
exhausted, and contemplating the affair in
undiminished horror they sought expres
sion of their abhorrence by a use of excla
mation points tmd furious ejaculations. As
a "Mich.1" affair it was to be passed over in
silence. As a "Miss." affair, the English
langu?ge was beggared of its hot, stinging
words, in the attempt to portray it9 fiendish
IIO'.V IT'S DONE.
An Illinois farmer propounded to the
editor of the Terre Haute Express, the fol
"Will you please give us a little more
light as to how we are to sell our wheat in
Europe for $1.00 in gold, when it is worth
$ 2.00 in Greenbacks here, and do a pros
And hero is the answer: "No fanner
sells his wheat in Europe at any price. He
sells to middlemen, or international traders.
Tho trader buys, say 1,000,000 bushels of
wheat, for which ho pays $2,000,600 in
greenbacks. He takes his cargo to Liver
pool and euUs it for $1,000,000 in gold.
With his $1,000,000 he purchases such
goods as arc salable in America. When he
arrives with his cargo in New York, it hav
ing cost hira $2,000,000 in greenbacks, ho
puts such price upon his goods as will en
able him to get his money back, with a
And upon such stuff as this does the Ex
press feed its greenback readers. The
idea that a trader may as a convenient and
usual business transaction, invest $1,000,
000 in English goods, bring them to New
York, pay the duty on thorn, and then sell
them at a price that will put about $3,000,
000 in his pocket that any trader may do
this, when English manufacturers arc un
able to pay duty and successfully compete

posterous that it is a matter ot surprise
thnt even a greenback editor can honestly
Tho tollowing calculations were made by
tho editor of an Indiana paper to illustrate
the all-gobbling results ot usury;
Tho island upon which Now York stands
was bought trom the Indians for the sum of
$24, and no doubt the purchaser thought
ho had made a fine investment, especially
if ho dreaiued of the future commercial im
portance of the property purchased. This
was only about two hundred and fifty years
ago. And yet if tho purchaser had put his
at interest, where he could have ndde-
to tho principal annually at the ratuof 7 per
tent., tho accumulation would exceed tho
present vuiuo onho entire city and county
of New York.
Tho state of Indiana contains 21.037,700
acr-s ol land, which, at government price
cot the purchasers $27,047,200. After
sixty year of hard work, adding hundreds
of millions of days' work, and a large
amount of imported capital to tho invest
ment, tho total vuluo of all tho real and
personal property of the state was returned
last year ut $33,703,015. But if the set-

tiers on Indiana's soil had, sixty years ago,
placed their $27,000,000 at 7 per cent, in
terest, adding tho accumulations of each
year to tho principal, their nggregato
wealth would now amount to $1,U41,U4(1,
000, or $1,01)5,552,955 more than all tho
property now in tho state is worth.
It hus been nearly two three-quarter cen
turies since Jamestown, Virginia, was col
onized. Had Captain Newport, who headed
the colony, placed at that time a single dol
lar at 10 per cent, interest, by tho present
time it would have amounted to over 180
billions of dollars a sum equal to more
than five times tho total value of all prop
erly, real and personal, in tho nation.
Estimating that tho outfit of Columbus
cost the small sum of $3,000, at 0 per cent,
annual compound interest, it will bo found
to have amounted, since 1492, to tho vast
sum ot $30,000,000,00030 trillions.
Allowing the tntiro population of North
and South America to bo ninety millions,
this vast sum of money would give $33;),
000 to each man, woman and child a third
of a million dollars to each human being on
the American continent !
Suppose it were possible to fund the na
tional debt of $2,1100,000,000 into 0 per
cent, bonds; anil suppose that the prostra
tion of industrial rroduction should increase
until tho only way in which John Sherman
could pay the annual interest on the bond
ed debt would be by selling additional 4 per
Before tho child now smiling in his
mother's arms would be out of his teens
the national debt would be doubled. By
the time he had made hiniselt a snug
home, thirty-five years hence, the lolt
would bo quadrupled. When the man had
becomo old enough to celebrate his golden
wedding, 'seventy years from the present
time, the national debt would have accum
ulated to the enormous amount of 32 bil
lions; and the interest alone, at 4 per cent.,
would be over one and a quarter bihlions
annually much nioretlian half the original
bebt of $2,000,000,000.
A single ten cent piece "only a dime"
place.! at five per cert, compound inter
est at the first Christinas day the world
ever knew, over eighu'ea centuries ago,
would now amount to over thirty-two bil
lion spheres of solid g'ld of standard fine
ness, each sphere as largo as this earth.
Were a person to count these globes at the
rate of a hundred each p.iinute for ten hours
each day, he would nerd over sixteen cen
