TU1C1AY, MAY 1J5, 1883.
IIOMcr.oi'ATHY is the top dog in the fight
in New York.
Timothy Kelly was convicted on his third
trial and hangs on June I.
Senator Anthony, after all, means to
deny his friends a funeral.
A man standing upon his dignity when he
has none has a bad footing. This is as far as
we have investigated.
Taimage describes the dude as the nux
vomica of modern society. They are certain
ly very bitter and poisonous weeds.
The April showers that might have pro
duced May flowers have verified the old
apothegm of nothing ventured, nothing won.
David Davis and the average newspaper
man have dissolved. He has warned the
"average," and swears, by his honeymoon, it
shall be a permanent divorce.
New Jersey justice is lively. A man was
arrested on Saturday for robbery and on the
ensuing Thursday entered the State's prison
at Trenton, sentenced to eight years.
Ex-IIon. Roscoe Conklino has settled the
presidential question. He says the Demo
cratic party will elect the next President. But
we do not proposcto retire upon our patriot
ism. It is detrrmined that the second national
cotton exhibition shall be held in New Or
leans. The cotton industry in all parts of the
world will be represented and the exhibition
be made purely industrial.
And now Massachusetts denies to Governor
Butler the merit ol having got her in fightinp
trim, and launched het into the great war,
aided and assisted by his predecessor, Gov
ernor John A. Andrew, 22 years ago. Is there
to be no end to this enmity toward a virtuous
and peaceful executive ?
The Boston daily press is chiefly occupied
in following up the consequences of the several
wars and other enterprises of Ills Excellency,
the Governor. This little docket of public
business on his hands does not, however,
prevent His Excellency from giving attention
to a large and Important professional practice,
lie could not-aflord the luxury of being Gov
ernor on Massachusetts pay, but it is not at
present without hopes of making a neat for
tune. He started in the Executive office with
The Governor of Pennsylvania has declared
forfeited the charters of near 700 corporations
on thegrjund that they have failed to make
returns to the Attorney General within three
yean. This wholesale delinquency is abun
dantly suggestive. Let not the moral of the
incident be lost with the losses of the stock
holders, whose ruin should be made subservi
ent to others' safely. Pennsylvania has a very
long and prohibitory constitution, but it is not
long enough, nor prohibitory enough. Legis
lation should be shorn of all creative priv-
The methods and persistence by which the
Indians arc perpetually swindled out of their
lands is a crying wrong which President
Arthur has resolutely set his face against.
United States Senator Logan's purpose of
"taking if he could get it" the land which
the Government ceded or confirmed to th
Tun! Indians has come to grief; and while tli
country is not signally advanced by the spec
tacle of one of its Senators making such base
use of his official position there is not super
added the humiliation of his "getting it."
The life of mind, joyous with the fragrance
of roses and ihe beauty and stateliness of the
lily, grows buoyant with the sense of one at
t&lnment. The sensibilities go with the senses
into the precincts of the beautiful where the
soul, regnant with conscious life, waits on Ihe
world. Something exultant comes as thoughts
of futurity fashioned, not from its past, not
stagnant reversions of olden time, but teeming
with new gifts, new powers and new posses
sions. It is more than mystery and yet less
than real. Hut covering every opening with
the charm of vision, when the walls crumble
and the floors give way, then reality lifts it
into a presence to which its dreams were as
faded fairy wonders, a nursery tale. It is thiis
wc put on immortality and pass over the
threshold of everlasting.
A I. Aim IN .SCOTLAND.
Abundant and obvious are the evidences
that the rough earth is entitled to be called
our mother; her offspring, in her different local
ities, denote by their characteristics the place
where they were born. The varieties of her
progeny correspond with varieties of clime ;
and characteristics of one age, whatever cen
turies intervene, distinguish all. Continents
perpetuate species peculiar to themselves, and
countries of each reproduce them with belter
defined varieties and unmistakable character
istics, so that not only mother earth, but
mother country, as a badge of origin and race,
accompanies us as language does, into what
ever unaccustomed dominions cur steps tend.
English, Irish, Scotch ; vhat a little piece
of earth the whole vhree comprehend, yet how
deeply grooved are the ways through which
the characteristics of each move, and how
wholly unlike is each to the others. The moth
er country,more than mother earth, supplic the
strong lines and marks of difference. The
ebony African, the swarthy Asiatic, and the
fair European, do not differ more in com
plexion than these three in mental and per
sonal characteristics. Each has filled the
world with the renown of gifted sons in letters,
art, philosophy and statesmanship; and, yet.
in all superstitions prevail as widely, and reign
as.supremely, as among African tribes.

has been revising her registers of births, and
finds to her dismay, that she is having a sur
plus ol boys. I here are 107 boys born to
every 100 girls. This has awakened the old
superstition, that such excess is a sure fore
runner of war. Scolch intellect would hardly
accept the phenomenal idea that war is a
natural production, and that nature thus pro
vides for its contingencies, yet the moral of
the superstition is that.
If we were to step within the vestibule of
this ancient superstition we should pro
nounce the event logically a providential act.
The increase of war material need not Implicate
nature in the cause. On the other hand, we
have not heard that an excess of females, in
nations where such excesi prevails, has been
fruitful in securing peice. It is better to await
the turn of events and not alarm Europe by
giving immediate attention to burnishing
Scotch arms and organizing drill. Scotland is
a peaceful clime.
