Among Ihe many interesting fact connected
tith tin temperance cause, is the following
"good un," which occurred not many years og o
in the county of W , in this Slate.
A young men of eoiae promise was addres
ring the daughter of one of our planters, end was,
by-the-bye, making eome progress in hi suit.
In the meantime, his "fair intended" learned
that eur hero had ouce bee a member of the
church, and departed from the faith. She also
learned that he had been a Son of Temperance,
but had backed from that.
The time was near when our hero was to
learn his fate ; indeed, the day had arrived, as
he was in attendance a beautiful black-eyed
bruaelte she is.
Yes, he was before her, pressing his suit, and
urging in the most eloquent strains his claims
to her "fail hand."
Greatly to the astonishment and chagrin of
ur hero, when lie "popped the all important,
lie received for an answer the emphatic "No,"
in round terms. Our hero, greatly, confused
and surprised, and scarcely knowing what he
did, "left for parts unknown" to us, while our
fair heroine soon after appeared before her
"doating mamma," and the following dialogue
Miss. Ma, the string is cut right in two.
Ma. How so, my dear?
Miss. Why, Mr. has once been a
member of church, and couldn't slick to that,
and he has been a Son, and couldn't stick to
that, so I thought he wouldn't stick to me, and
I just told him, no sir-ce.
Ma. Served him exactly right, my child;
eome here and kiss your ma.
Young man, when you join the church, or the
Sobs, you had better "slick to it," or, you know
the rest, if there are sensible girls about.
From Arthur's Home Gazette.
- A Temperance lecturer, not long lince,
told the following story. We have not seen
it in priat, though it may b familiar to
"A poor infatuated drunkard," said lie,
"after spending all tlie money in his pock
et, at the bar of a cold-hearted wretch,
was turned out of his tavei n one dark rainy
night,? too much intoxicated to he able to
find his way home. The canal was only a
lew rods from the grocery, and into this
the poor victim fell, and was drowned.
On the next morning, his body was discov
ered lloatiug on the mii facu of the water.
The heart stricken wife, without money or
friends, went in despair to the tavern-keeper,
at whose bar her huihand had spent
nearly all of his earnings, and begged ol
him to help her, in her dreadful oxtermity,
to give a decent burial to the body of her
" "Go away! Clear out from hers, ex
claimed the tavern-keeper as soon as he
heard her tearful request. 'I want noth
ing more to ilo with you or your miserable
husband. I've had trouble enough with him
"Weeping bitterly, the poor creature
went out from that den of coruption and
infamy, I met her leading a ragged child
by the hand, and on asking the cause of
lier distress, soon comprehend the whole
matter. 1 am somewhat fertile in expedi
ents. One suggested itself now, and was
" How many children have you?' I en
quired. " 'Three little ones was answered.
"Will you bring them here in one
hour from this time?' I asked.
"She promised to do so.
"lie sure nnd come,' I urged at parting
with her, 'and bring them just as they aie
in their rags and wretchedness.
"During the hour that intervened, I pas
sed along the canal, and into many shops
fend stores, inviting all 1 met to assemble
in front or the groggery, from which the
dead man had been thrust on the ptevious
right. A goodly number were there at the
time appointed, curious to know for what
purpose I had assembled them, The wi
dow and her three orphans were also oa
the spot, and already objects of sympathy.
"Justin front of the groggcry stood and
old dray. On this I placed the woman and
her children, called to them the attention of
tho crowd, and in plain but strong language
told my story of the husband's fall from so
briety, how he had wasted his earning at
the bar of this grog-seller; and how, when
he had nothing left, he had been thrust forth
In the night and storm, to drown in the
waters he had no concious power to avoid.
Then I pictured, in the most vivid Ian
Ruece I could command, the weeping wife
Imploring the hard-hearted man tor aid to
bury the husband he had murdered; and cle
cribed how he thrust her forth with insult
"I miscalculated tiio power of what 1
was doing. A storm of passion was rais
ed that for a time threatened to sweep past
all opposition on my part. First arose a
rnurmur of indignation against thagiog
seller. Then low, angry throats passed
from one to another, and then two of the
most reckless rushed in to tho bar-room,
and seizing the 'murderer ns they called
him, dragged him forth, crying, 'To the
canal. Drown hiuri! Drown him! lie Is
not fit lo live?" Promt action was nucos
aary. 1 threw myself into the midst of the
angry mob, and rntchiug hold of the trem
bling wretch, implored the excited men a
round me to do him no violence. 'Better
destroy his rum bottles paid 1, In hopes of
diverting lheh minds from the person of the
tavern-keeper. My words had the desired
effect. 'Destroy his liipior! Empty his
aegs into me canal! ' cried a dozen voicea.
Aad in live brief minuets the work was
done. Under cover of this diversion, Hit)
owner of the lipjo escaped. The excite
ment over, 1 next directed the attention of
my impulsive audience, who had gone far
beyond what I desired or approved, to the
weeping and frightened widow and orphan
childri, who sat trembling on tho dray.
It required but a few words to turn the an
gry tide of feeling into a broader and
smoother channel. A hundred dollars
were subscribed on the spot, and placed in
the poor woman's hands: while twe of the
company were delegated to go with her to
her wretched home, and see to the decent
burial of her husband.
"The tavern-keeper threatened to bring suit
against rac, and would have done so but for a
suggestion er two made to him quietly by a man
who had not much fesr of law consequences
before his eyes. I felt a little uneasy, for I was
responsible for the injury he had sustained at
the hands of the mob, but nothing came of it.
He did not attempt to resume his infamous trade
in that town, but soon went away, and I hear.)
nothing of him afterwards. Since then, I have
been more careful about exciting the passions
of a mob, even in a gaod cause."
HEW PLASTIC MATERIAL.
Five parts of good whiting are mixed witli a
solution of one part of glue. When the whiting
is worked up into a paste with the glue, a
proportionate amount of Venetian turpentine is
added to it, by which the bnttleness of the paste
is destroyed. In order to prevent its clinging
to the hands whilst the Venetian turpentine- is
being worked into the paste, a small quantity of
linseed oil is added from time to time. The mass
May also be colored by kneading in any color
mat may be desired. It may be pressed into
shapes, and used lor the production of bas-reliefs
and other figures, such as animals, &c. It
may also be worked by hand into models, during
which operation the hands must be rubbed wilh
linseed oil ; the mass must be kept warm during
the process. When it cools and dries, which
takes place in a few hours, it becomes as hard
as stone, and may then be employed for the
multiplication ot these lorms.
THE DOGS AND THE KOBBF.KS.
A tragical story is told of an ml venture that
happened to the monks of St. Bernard in the
days wIumi their dogs were nt their full perfec
tion. No less than thirty robbers, to whom the
supposed possessions of the monastery offered a
rich booty, had by degrees introduced themselves
into the retreat ; arriving in parties at intervals,
and were always received in a most friendly
manner. As soon as the whole band was assem
bled, they threw off their concealment, and sum
moned the abot to produce the keys of tlie
treasury. The monk was fortunately a man of
more resolute character than usually occurred
in these places of seclusion, anil did not lose
his presence of mind, lie observed to them
midldly that their conduct was unworthy, and an
ill return for the hospitable attention they had
received. The robbers, as may be supposed,
were deaf to this appeal, a id continued their
"If it must be so," said the superior, "as wc
have no means of defending ourselves, I must
submit; follow me, therefore, to the spot where
our treasure is kept."
lie led the way, and was tumulttiotisly atten
ded by the eager band. He placed his hand on
a door, but before he turned the key he turned
back and made another appeal; he was answered
with execrations, and no choice being left him,
he threw the door wide open. It was the den
in which the dogs were kept ; he raised his
voice, to which a loud yell responded, then gave
a rapid signal, and in au instant the powerful
animals bounded forth upon their prey, tearing
some, startling others, and sending the few of
the robbers who eicapcd their attack Hying for
their lives headlong down the mountain, in fran

CONNECTED WITH DAN RICE'S HIPPODROME
Is a side show the big ox said lo weigh about
five thousand pounds. Dan's establishment is
conveyed from point to point by steamboat, and
exhibiting, as he does, under a tent on shore, his
wits are at times puzzled to get his big ox ashore
without having it seen by the big crowd which
are invariably on the ground about us toon as
Dan is. It happened while he was here last
month, that thrpe or four hundred persons were
collected around his tent before said ox had been
brought from the boat. Dan made up his mind
to frustrate this design, and he did it complete
ly. Accordingly ho stepped on board his cral't,
and in a few minutes an awful rumpus whs
heard and Dan's voice ringing above the din,
"Kill the scoundrel I kill him!" I resently a
man half covered with blood came rushing ashore
Tallowed by two other persons who were hurl
ing bludgeons and oaths at him in the most sav
age manner imaginable. The bloody man
ran for dear life, apparently, the other
two after him, until all three had gain
ed the cover of the exhibition pavilion, where
(he former was overhauled, knocked down, and
trounced most scientifically. The crowd gath
ered around, but were shut out by Dan's men,
who formed a ring around the combatants. "Cut
his throat, stab him lo tho heart!" cried one.
"Stand back, gentlemen! dash his brains out!"'
cried another. "Foul play! separate 'em!'' yell
ed the crowd, and and ut that moment a hundred
men broke the ring, and lore apart the beliger
cuts. Dan Rice was one of that hundred, and
he gained their centre, and threw himself into
ono of the laughable attitudes fur which lie is so
noted, and with his finger to his nose, announced
the big ox ashore, und ready for exhibition at
two dimes a sight! Such a yell as then went
Up for Dun Rice's "one horse shew," was never
heard here before on any occasion. It rang loud
anil long and almost terrific.
The L'loody man stepped to the river; washed
the blood from his face, which proved to be
beefs blood, and ill nil hour afterwards was
cutting no mean figure among Dan's equestrians.

The other evening a gentleman of Benicia
gave a party, to which wcreinvited various of
the honorable members of ihe Legislature.
Among others was an honorable Senator from
one of the mining districts. In the course of
the evening this honorable Senator chanced to
be engaged in a dance with one of the fair ones
of Benecin, who not having previously been
honored with his acquaintance, asked him where
he lived, lie answered
"And how long have you resided here?" said
the inquisitive fair one.
"About three years," was the reply.
"'Tis singular I have never met you before,"
said she. "May I ask what is your business
" Oh," said the mischievous senator. " I keen
a barber's shop down town."
I lie lady danced but a minute more, complain

We arc indebted to a friend from New Lon
don, Mo., for the following "sermon," sent here
from Californa, by J. II. L., M. D.:
A MINERS SERMON.
A young physician, who after having received
his diploma from one of our Medical Colleges,
finding that there was no chance of gaining a
livelihood by the practice of his profession in
the place of his nativity, concluded to pack up
his tuols and emigrate to the land of gold on the
Pacific. Here he found no better encourage
ment in the practice of medicine, for which he
had been duly prepared and licensed. As a last
resort he turned miner, and exchanged the scal
pel for the pick-axe. In a recent letter to a
( friend at home, he embodies a sort of valedicto
ry sermon to his last pursuit, which is well
"Wnr will ye Die!" Son of man! for
the lit-lit of whose presence mv snirit v Burnetii
'and my bowels grumblelh, dost thou ask me
'why? Is it not written that fortune smiles
i upon fools? And fur the sake of the smiles,
hath not thy servant been making a foal, yea, an
ass of himself in vain ? For fi: years and ten
days he has sojourned in this place he has
'dived into the water he has torn ancient rocks
from their resting places, and removed them
(afar off (he has likewise torn his breeches in
'parts not to be spoken of he has rooted into
the mud like unto a swine.) (His beard hath
grown long, the skin upon his hands aud face
Jr.tlh changed its color until he is now likened
unto wild beasts, nnd his garments are rent and
soiled, so that "sackcloth and ashes" would be
fine us purple and linen to him.) He would
fain feed on husks, but there are none. (Yea,
he who in times past was wont to fare sump
tuously, and to grumble over greater delicacies
than were piled upon the table of Dives, now
! snuffs with gladness the fragrance of pork and
beans, und gnashes his teeth impatiently over a
jfrying s'apjack.) He bolteth a raw onion with
j unspeakable avidity. (I'otatoe skins fear his
presence, beef vanishes from before him and
idogs look in vain for the bones. He siirhs for
the ilesh pots of Egypt, and mourns over the
barrenness of the lands.)
In his sleep nevertheless, the good nngcl of
the past deigns to visit him, and delightful vis
ions are opened to his recollection, for a deli
cious "bill ot tare lioats belore tlie mind oi the
dreamer, and he orders "oysters and terrapin
for six" only lo awaken to his infernal slapjacks
(All this hath thy servant endured. Is he
not then a fool, and abomination in the sight of

her unawares! Hut she glidelh off as though I

Lo ! are not these evils ? And wherefore
should they be visited upon thy servant ? Surely

FRIDAY EVENING, JULY 20, 1853.
County 6uascaflTfo. The cdi(rU the
Bloomington Republican is bothering his pate
again about the location of the Ilaanibal and St,
Joseph Railroad. The followiug is frein an
article containing a precis u lot of, nonecaae en
the same subjeot:
Since the road has been located na it ie, we
are opposed to involving the people any further
in tlie form of Slate loans or county subscrip
tions, for its construction. We expect to see
(ha day, (not far distant,) when (his company
will be at the feet of the people, asking for this
appropriation, and that hypothecation.
At tlie leet ni Uio counties for their subscrip
tions The coaspaay won't have the county
subscriptions, unless they are paid in risst.
Mark that for our prediction, Mr. Republican.
By the amendments to the charter, (he company
is not compelled to receive county bonds in
payment for subscriptions of slock ; but cash
only, and wc don't believe they will take any
thing else. Some of the counties seem to think
the issuing ef bonds a mere form, involving no
expense, and are consequently making no suita
ble provision. We should not be surprisod if
some ef them were to "came up missing."
2?" In advocating the establishment of a daily
line of stages to Naples, a few days since, we
stated that the time between Hannibal and Chi
cago would then be about thirty-six hours. We
upposed there would be one hundred miles of
staging forty miles to Naples, and sixty miles
botween Springfield and Bloomington. Tlie
following extract from the Springfield Register
shows that the lime is being rapidly reduced :
The iron is laid down over 25 miles towards
Oloemiagton. It is the company's intention, as
soon as the iron is laid down to Poslville, to run
their trains tothnt noint. which is about mid wav
between this city and Bloomington. There will
then be but about 30 miles of staging between
Alton and Chicago. The iron will be laid to
Postville within a fortnight from the present
Had we now a daily line of stages to Naples,
there would be, in two weeks, but seventy miles
of staging between Hannibal and New York
City! The iron horse would lake the traveler
ever all the balance of the distance. Chicago
is moving up so close we can almost see, glisten
ing in the sun, the frame collages that shelter
her fifty thousand inhabitants ! and New York
is but 30 hours beyond.
Ast Argument for a Daily Line of
Stages to Naples. Last winter a broker
of St. Louis, wishing to return home (rom
Hannibal, and being desirous of avoiding
the delay nnd inconveniences of a land trip
on the Missouri side, crossed the river aud
started to Barry on foot, preferring to walk
eighteen miles, and risk getting a convey
ance from Barry to Naples, rather than en
counter the greater evils of our line to Saint
Ma. Editor : It appears the West is the
mother of discoveries, as the Editor cf the
Courier, has just discovered, that all great men
that have lived and died as eminent polilitians in
tho Country, have been a dead weight to the
government. It is a singular fact that this
thing has Dover tan found out before, bat there is no ac
counting for genius in this wu4en country. Now, to think
that such a thing as this should hre escaped tho notice of
this republic so long, and then diioorered by a one horse
newnpaper, is most astounding. JACK.

ges we published sometime since against Mr.

Saturday, July 16, 1853, te consider the pro
priety of having a Printer's Ceaveatiaa. , Od

of the Gazette, waa appointed Chairmara and on

the Cycle, was appointed Secretary. , ...
Col. Ridenbaucb, having been called uponi
made an able appeal in favor of the proposed
Convention of those interested ia the diffusion
of universal intelligence. He had been en
gaged, as Devil, l'rinter, Jour, f ressmart, Pub
lisher and Editor, for more than aix Roman
"lustrums," thus his experience has been ample
as to the evil effects on an irregulatod, vacil
lating tariff of pricos, that, while all other in
terests and trades; unite to protect themselves
the'-noblest profession" of them all, ia left,
like the "weed cast from the rock, ea ocean's
foam to float where e'er the wares night roll
or the Winds pervail." That it waa high time
some ot tne evils inciucni ie una wreicneu
state of affairs, were abated, and the proper meet
ing of all the members of the craft, for mental
interchange of thought, consultations and ar
rangements were made. It was high time that
the Profession of Printing should take hirh
ground; and place itself in the rank worthy- f
lis uign uesuny, anu inai u uenoovea ail wno
are now, ever nave been, or ever will be con
nected with so honorable a trade to "stand to
their arms." , . . - .i-

est approbation, and excited the most glorious
cnthusiam. , . . , .,--
The Resolutions, thus ably supported, weft
unanimously adopted. t ' - . , .-,
Un motion of W. Kinuenbaueh, St, Louis
was proposed as a suitable place for the meet
ing of said convention and on motion cf C. F.
Hollv. second Mdndav in October wis rn-nm.'
hieurled ns a suitable firriu. . -, .
The following Resolutions were unanimously
Resolved, That we deem it highly esscr&iai
aud important te the craft, that the proposed
convention, should be held some time this falh
Its utility none can question; while the prices
of every other branch of business is on the in
crease, printing lags behind. It ia for the want
of some system and uniformity among pabliabi
ers of papers. This must effectually bo accom
plished by a convent ioni
Resolved, In order to accomplish lo desire'
ble a result a uniformity and fixed rates ot
printing it is very necessary that there ba a
full attendance from every part of the State.
Resolved, That the proceeding or this meet
ing be published in the Gazette, and Cycle; at
St. Joseph, and Savannah Sentinel, and all ether;
papers in the State, be requested tocopy.
