K. A. Burnett,
"Dehociuct is a sentiment not to be appalled,
corrupted or compromised. It knows no baseness,
cowers to no danger, oppresses no weakness. Fear
less, generous and humane, it rebukes the arrogant,
cher'.shes honor, and sympathises with the bumble.
It asks nothing but what it concedes; it concedes
nothing hut what it demauds. Dentructive ot
espotiim, it Is the sole conservative of liberty, la
borund property. It is tho sentiment of freedom,
of equal obligations. It is tho law of nature per
tailing the law of the land. 'The stupid, the ;!
fish, the base in spirit may denonnce it ns a vnlgar
thing; but in the history of our rsce the Demo
cratic principlohM deTelopcd and illustrated the
Licbest moral and intellectual attributes of our
nature. Yes, this is a noble, magnanimous, a sub
lime sentiment, which expands onr affections, en
1 ar jes the circle of our sympathies and elevates the
'soul of man until, claiming an equality with tho
best, b rejects as unworthy of his dignity any po
litical immunities over the humblest of his fellows.
Yes.it is an ennobling principle; and may that
s plrit which animated our fathers in the Revolution
ary contest for it establishment continue to ani
mate us, their sons, in the impending struggle for
lis preservation." WILLIAM ALLEN.
The nomination of A. B. Cornell as the
Republican candidate for Governor of New
York, shows that Canonchet Conkling has
tho Republican party of New York under
as complete subjection as the Caracrons
have the party in Pennsylvania.
Ik there is a Democrat in the North
who defends or apologizes for tho Yazoo
murder, wo have not heard of him. If
there is a Democrat who doe9 not hold the
affair as an astrocious crime, we have not
hoard of mm. Yet Republican editors,
with a pertcnacity that would be wearisome
if they were telling the truth, declare that
the Democratic party endorses and defends
the murder of Dixon as a party necessity 1
The belief that a lie, persisted in, is as ef
fective as tho truth, is at the bottom of the
Thb Managers of the St. Louis fair prom
ise to give ug tho biggest, the most inter
esting and attractive exposition, this year,
' ever given in tho West. The premiums
amount to $50,000, five thousand dollars of
which is to bo awarded to military com
panies and battalions that display the
greatest skill in drill and maneuvering. It
is already known that the military display
will be tho finest ever seen in tho country.
The fair commences Monday, September
22nd, and will close October 1 1th. Nearly
all the railroads and steamboat lines will
carry passengers at half rates.
Thb Greenback party pf New York
polled last year seveny-fivo thousand votes,
and enabled the Republicans to carry tho
Stato by a plurality. It is certain that tho
same game will not be played this year.
The Democrats who voted for tho Green
back candidates have had their eyes opened,
and they are now rallying around tho flag
of their firet love.. The Utica Herald, Re
publican, commenting on tho dying out of
tho Greenback organization, says : "In
one sense this in unfortunate for tho Repub
lican party. It la too .evident to bo con
cealed that it was the existence and
strength of . the Greenback party which
enabled tho Republieans to elect their
State ticket and a njnjority of tho Lrgioln.

Cou Harper, thrpropnetortf Iho f fiko-
lotia States, is now in the North, on a,; lcc
luring tour, ftis principal field of opera
tions will : bo the 'intensely Republican
Stato of Iowa. The fact' that Col. Harper
coms North to deal with tho Yazoo mur
der at a time when every Republican paper
in the land is whooping-up that event with
marvelous industry, creates tle suspicion
that he is instigated by Republican money.
The facts yet to be developed that his au
diences will be composed of Republicans,
and that he will be courted and feted by
that class of politicise, while- tho Demo
crats everywhere will give him tho cold
shoulder and repudiate him, will strengthen
that suspicion in the minds of many, to an
absolute conviction. ho does not know
that if Colonel Harucr had come
North at tho instance of the Democrats,
that he would have been compelled to look
to Democrats for his audiences, and for tho
protection of his person from the violence
of Republican mobs? The man who doesn't

temper of partizan politics.
8o.meti.me ago Mr. Kiddle, tho Superin
tendent of Schools of the City of New
convert, to spiritualism,
and published a book in which he discribed
the phenomena that effected his conversion,
and m which he also embodied communi
cations he had received from Pope Pius IX,
Demosthenes, Napoleon Bonaparte, George
Washington and many other dead of equal
note. A more sickening dose of stuff and
nonsense was never inflicled upon the pub
lic; and very naturally the hue and cry
was at once raised that a man who held to
such a creed as Mr. Kiddle had promul
gated, and swallowed as truths such sense
less twaddle as he ascribed to the great and
honored dead, was not such a man as
should fill the position of Superintendent
of the public schools of the metropolis of
the nation. So furious did this clamor be
como that Mr. Kiddle felt constrained to
tender his resignation, to take effect as soon
as his successor was appointed and quali
tied. The New York Board of Education
has held several meetings to consider of the
situation, but has failed to cgree on Kid
dle's successor. A majority of the board is
in favor of displacing Kiddle, but to do
that they must name his successor. The
petition of a thousand teachers, praying
that Kiddle be retained, was promptly ta
bled, and every movement that contem
plated his retention was promptly defeated;
but as it is quite impossible for the board
to agree upon a successor, the probabilities
are that Kiddle, crammed with the spirit
ualistic stuff that is so abominable to a
majority of tho people, will continue to
serve as the Superintendent of the empire

TURNED FROM THE DOOR.
"No tramps here," said I, and shut the i
door in his face, I 'did. The wind blew so
I could hanlly uo it,, and the sleet was
beating on the panes, and the bare trees
were groaning and moaning as if thty
suffered in the storm. "No trtmps here;
I'm afraid of 'cm."
Then the man I hadn't seen yet, for the
dark, went away from the door. Champ,
champ, champ, came the man back again
and knocked on the door- knocked not
half so loud as before and I opened it,
hot and angry. This time I saw his face
a pale ghost of a face with yellow-brown
hair, cropped close, and great staring blue
eyes, and he put his hand against the door
and held it open.
"How near is the next hous.-, ma'am'!"
said he. .
'.'Three miles or more," said I
"No," said I; "no drinks to be gotten
there. It is Miss Mitten's, and she's as set
against tramps as I am."
"1 don't want a drink," said the man,
"though I do want fooo You needn't be
afraid to let mo in, ma'am. I've been
wounded, aud am not ablo to walk fur, and
my clothes are thin, and its bitter cold.
I've been trying to get to my parents Green
back, where I can rebt till I'm better; all,
my money was stolen from mo threo dava
ago. You needn't bo afraid ; let mo junt lie
before tho fire, and only give mo a crust
the stalestrust, to keep mo from starving
and tho Lord will bless you for it."
And then he looked at me with hU mil.l
blue eyes in a way that would have made
mo do it if it hadn't been I'd seen so much
of these impostors. Tho war was just over,
and every beggar that came along said he
wasa,Boldier traveling home, and liad been
wounded and robbed. One that I had been
fool enough to help, limped awav out of
sight, as ho had thoutrht, Hnd then for I
was at tho garret window shouldered hi

Drusilla, that's my neice, was making
cakes in the kitchen. Just then sho camo
to the door and motioned with her mouth,
"Do let him stay, auntie;" and if I hadn't
had good sense I might, but I knew, better
than a cbjck of sixteen.
"Go away with you!" says I louder than
before. "1 won't havo this any longer."
And ho gave a kind of a groan, mid took
his hand from tho latch, and went champ,
champ through the frozen snow again; and
I thought him gouo, wljen there wan onco
more, hardly a knock at all-a faint touch,
hko a child's now.
And when I opcued tho door again, he
cumo quite in, and stood leaning on his
cane, pale as ghost, his eyes bigger than
"Well, ol all the impudence!" said I.
He looked at mo ami said:. "Madam, I

live to nee her. I shall not if 1 try to co

I. "They buy 'em so they told me, to go a

Tramps aro my abomination. And as to
keeping you all night, you can't expect that

Drusilla came to the door and said :
"Let him stay, auntie," with her lips
again, but I took no notice. ' 1 '
So he went, and this time he did not
como back, and I sat down by the fire aud
smelt the baking cakes and apples stewing,
aud the tea drawing on the kitchen 'stove,
and I ought to havo been comfortablo ; but I
wasn't. Something seemed to be tuggiug
nt my heart all tho timo. .
, I gave the firo a poko and lit another
candle to cheer myself up, and went to my
work-basket to get a sock I had been knit
ting for my Charlie, and as I went to get it,
I saw something lying on tho floor. I
picked it tip. It was an old tobacco pouch,
ever so much like tho one I gave Charlie
with tho fringe around it, and written on iy
in ink, "From C. F.toB. II.;" and insideH
was a bit of tobarco and an old pine, and a
letter a rumpled old letters; and when I
spread it out I saw on tho top, "My dear
I knew the begger must have dropped
it, and my heart gavo a light thump, as
though it had been turned into a hammer.
Perhaps tho story was true and he had a
mother. I shivered nil over, and the lire
and candles, and nice comfortable smells
might as well not have been at all. I was
cold and wretched.
And over and over again had I to say to
mvself what I heard our pastor say oltcn:
"Never give any to chance beggars, p:y
dear friends; always bestow your alms on
worthy persons, through well-organized so
cieties," before I could set a bit of comfort.
And what aa old Hbl I was to cry, I
thought, when I found my cheeks wet.
But I did not cry long, tor, as I sat there
dash crash and jingle came a sleigh over
the road, and it stepped at our gate, and I
heard my Charlie's voice crying, -Halloa
mother! ' And out I went to the door, and
had him in my arms my great, tall, hand
some brown son. And there he was in his
uniform, with bis pretty shoulder straps
and as hearty as if he had never been
through any hardships. He had to leave
me to"put the horse up, and then I had by
the (ire my own son. And Drusilla. who
had been up stairs crying why, I wonder!
came down all in a Sutter for they were
like brother and sister and he kissed hir
and she kissed him, and then away she
went to set the table, and the nice hot things
smoking on a cloth as white as snow; and
h.ow Charlie enjoyed them! But ouce in
the midst of all I felt a frightened feeling
come over me, and I knew I turned pale;
for Drusilla said, "What is the matter,
I said nothing; but it was this: Kind o'
like the ghost of a step, goin champ,
champ, over the frozen snow; kind o' like
the ghost ot a voice saying : "Let me lie on
the floor before your fire, and give me any
kind of a crust;-' kind o' like some that had
a mother down on the wintry road, and
freezing and starving to death there. This
is what it was. But I put it away, and on
ly thought of Charlie.
We drew up together by the fire when the
tea was done, and he told ns things about
the war I had never heard before how the
soldiers suffered, and wimt weary marches
and short rations they sometimes had. And
then he told me his life had been in dan
ger; how he had been set upon by the foe
and been badly wounded; and how, at the
risk of Ins own life, a fellow soldier had
saved him, and carried him away, lighting
ins patn uuck to camp.
1 would never see you but for him,"
says Charlie. "And if there's a man on

est, best fellow ! We've shared each other's
rations and drank from the same canteen
many and many a time; and if I had a
