I believe, Mr. Speaker, that tho fame of
Jefferson is waning, and the fame ot Ham
ilton waxing, and the tame of American
people, and that we are gravitating toward
a stronger government. I am glad we are.

sion. Taere cannot be the slightest doubt that
the Republicans are pouring negro voters
into Ohio and Indiana in the hope of car
rying the elections in those states by fraud.
The Courier-Journal yesterday received
from South Union, Kentucky, the following
information. It comes from one ot tho
best men in the state, a man who is person
ally known to tho publishers of the Courier-Journal:
"Nearly all our hired darkies
have cone to Indiana and Ohio to vote.
Where they get traveling funds from I
know not, as most of them lived here close
up with their wages." It is certainly a
bad case with the Republicans when they
cannot trust their cause to a fair election m

tropical fruits, but the trees are mostly
smaller, and a large part of it is covered
with grass and shrubs. On this side are
also found somo fruits which are also
natives ot the temperate zone. Among
them are the gooseberry, grape, currant,
raspberry, and mandrake, Ilero I found
insects as varied and plentiful as on the
east 6idc. But it differs from the east side
in having no monkeys, and in having vast
numbers of birds of every size and plum
age. Among them arc the ostrich, swamp
goose, duck, quail, robin, and humming
On both sides arc many small streams.
Tho water of these is pure and clear as
crystal. The temperature of both sides is
warm. It docs not vary. Here tho crust
of the earth is much thinner than at the
equator, and tho temperature is caused not
so much by the sun as the heat coming out
of the earth.
In the region around tho pole and tho
water immediately about it the cold is so
intense that human beings could not en
dure it. Therefore no man has ever
reached the pole. Neither, unless there be
a change in the temperature of the earth,
can he ever reach it.

A CniLD CLAIRVOYANT 6EES AND DESCRIBES
THE NORTH POLE.
There is a child clairvoyant in Baltimore
who, it is claimed, beside other remarkable
visions, has had oue of the north pole. The
following is her statement, as reported in
the Baltimore American, July 30:
I am a little girl, not quite eleven years
of age. I have a spirit guide, an Indian
chief, named Wampa. On or about the 15th
of April, 1880, while standing at the corner
of Saratoga and Charles streets, Baltimore,
Md., I went with my guide down toward
the centre of the earth. I looked upon the
hot molten and seething mass forming the
earth's centre. Thence I went with Wumpa
through the earth, and came to the surface
near the polar region. In going thence to
the pole, I 6aw five men, with six dogs,
running after a white bear. And
some distance ahead of them I
saw two otficr men, with three dogs, run
ning after a Bmall bear cub. The five men
had spears and knives, and the two men
spears. The people were of short stature
und roundish face. All of them wore bear
skins, except one, who wore a seal skin.
The skins covered their whole body, in
cluding the hands, teet, and part of the face.
The degs seemed to be about the size or a
little larger than the English bull dog.
Their hair was shaggy. Tho largo bear
was bleeding from a previous wound. Wam
pa asked me to go up and put my finger on
the bear's head back of the car. I did. It
felt a little soft, somewhat like our temples.
Wampa said : l,In order to kill the white
bear thnt is the surest spot to hit." Almost
immediately afterward one of the men
threw a spear, hit the bear on the spot and
Thence with Wampa I traversed an im
mense tract of ice, where the ocean was
frozen to half its depth. Occasionally I
heard under my feet loud reports from the
cracking ice. After a time the ice disap
peared, and water for about ten miles took
its place. I then reached the pole, and
found it to be an island of a hilly form,
having a gradual rise from the water's edge
to about the middle of it. To mo it seem
ed to be about live or six miles through the
centre, but Wampa told me it was a him
dred miles around it.
On some parts of it appear only bare
rocks; on other parts it Ins an abundant
vegetation. About half of it, the cast
side, is covered with fruit trees. In some
parts they grow in dense thickets ; in some
they grow not so close togtthef, and have
grass thickly interspersed among them. Tho
fruit consistB of oranges, lemons, bannanas,
cocoanuli and other tropical fruits, many of
which I have never seen nor heard of.
This part of the pole is inhabited by

The Popularity of the. Eonitahle Life Assurance Society,
indicated by the fact that for Eleven years its arerasre an-
nualXew Business has been larger than that of any other
Company in the world, is due, in a great measure, to its well-
known promptness in the payment of Death Claims, audits
rule never to take advantage of technicalities where an
equitable claim exists.
As a GUARANTEE of this, and to counteract the perni-
cious influence of a technical policy, adhered to by many
companies, the Equitable makes ALL ITS POLICIES, old and
new, throughout the United States.
