ISN vnt SI,:A'IIt the coutest over Louis
ian 'tand South Caroihna Senatorships
hans ocnupied the time of tiLis wing of the
C:ipitil during the past week, , When ye
nmigihty soloas met the democrats were
quite coutident that, the delnocriicaspir ,
anlts would be Poatedj iummediately iwith
out con:lteltion. But the tactics display
edl by the .Rads, since our last. has caused
our democratic friends to be quite dis
gtusted as well as despondent Our friens
have quite mistaken their incn, what
could be exslcted; after the 8x7 verdict.
Could it, hte sa-pplseld that the Rds wottul
lIe wore likely to seat democrats now,
when with a, two-thirds majority hereto
fore, tley refused to be.just. The force
of party necessity conlpels them to keep
lihe democratio vote in that chamber
dlown, had we are snrprisod.at the short
sightedlness of our Thurman and other
denmocratic friends, to suppose that the
rads, would give anything like a fair deal
now. They are only Edmundses, Conk
linh s and Heits, at the very best, and no
fonrce iof logic or law has any weight with
a rail, with them the end justifles the
means, with iIenl'f schilk. If our friends
would only display a little of "practical
polities" by protecting tlhrieo or four Sen
ators frol priiseentiil, nod as democrats
hut, as indlepenilents, enollnh votes could
he securCed to turn the scale, andlt the en
tire sitl.atic;n woull Ie theirs, Senate and
all. Oir leaders seem to be too confident
ill tlie hlonor of the Radical leaders, it is
nimrce nonsnse. Mr. JCiistis' case is jeop
ar'ized by Pinchliback's (eoPl'd.) new
cli us, which hiive leen worked up by
palrties here. The rilds are quite elated
at their new prspellicts, and now openly
boanst that all the Republican conitestants
will hbe seated. Two of the Senators who
were considered: doubtful have now collie
squarely out for the Radical side Kelloggs
chaencus, have undller the new developaient
gone fil to par, and the vote ofevery rad
initl Senator is counllted on tfor hilm, except
Christianey's aund that had better be
thrlllow in for goodi Ineasuir.

it was conlsidered that Kellogg's chlanices

c!lin that if Kellogg is admliitted , I'ack

olinll too the nliol animosity in our own'

serted that M. C. Bnutler's adiissionl will

of thle demnocratic party, erge, pull!
TIE IXNEITAvBL.: fte of the l'epiublican
piarty after March 4, 1879 is that they
mest yield possession of the Senate to
their political .opponents" and thits fact
is having its wsiglht with the sell out
portion of their party, who are inclinied
to mlako somll colimliromnise with the Denm

What is poverty t Not destitution, but
poverty t "It has many shapes,-aspeects
almost as various as the minds and cir
cumstances of those whom it visits. It is
famine to the savage in the wilds; it is
hardships to tihe laborer in the cottage!
it is dipgrace to the proud; and to the mi
ser despair. It is a spectre which *'with
dread of change perplexes" him who lives
at ease. Such.are its aspects, but what
is it f It is a deficiency of the comforts
oflifo, -a deficiency present and to come.
It involves many other things; but this
is what it is. :-,Is it then worth all the ap
prehqnsion aud:grief it occasions t Is it
an adtequatteunse for the gloom of the
merchant, the discontent of the airtisan,
the foreboding sightl of the mother, the
ghastly dreams which haunt the avari
cious, the conscious debasement of the
subervient, tho hemiliation of the proud f
These are severe sufferinga; are they au
thorized by the nature of poverty ! Cer
tainly not, if poverty induced no adventi
tious evils, involved nothing but a defic
iency of the comforts of life, leaving life
itself unimpaired. "The life is more than
food and the body than raiment;" and the
untimely extinction of the life itself
would not be worth the pangs which ap
prehend poverty excites. But poverty
involves wces which, in their sum, are
far greater than itself. To the multitude
it is the loss of a pursuit which they have
yet to learn will be certainly supplied.
For such, alleviation or compensation is
in store in the rising up of neow objects,
and the creation of fresh hopes. The im
poverished merchant, who may no lhnger
look out for his argosies, may yet be in
g".eo when he finds it "a rare dropping
morning for the early colewort." To an
other multitude, ]povelty involves loss of
rank,-a letting down among strangers
whoso manners are ngenuial], and their
thoughts unfauniar. For these there may
be solace in retirement, or the evil many
fall short of its threats. The reduced
gentlewoman may live in patient solitude
or imay grow into sympathy with her
neighbors, by raising somen of them up to
herself, and by warming her heart at the
great central fire of lumanity, which
burns on under the ernst of manners, as
rough as the storms of the tropics, or as
frigid us polar snows. The avari:cios
are out of the pale of peace already, and
at all events. Poverty is most seriously
an evil to sous and dauighiers, who see
their parlllts stripped of comfort, at anil
age when eontfirt is almost one with life
itself; andi to parents who watch the nar
rowing of the caipacities of their childrcu
by the pressiure of poverty, the impairing
of their promise, the blotting out of their
prospects. To such nmorning children
there is little comfort. but inl conteILpla
ting the easier life which lies behind,
andl, (it may he hoped) thle lappier. one
which stretches before their parents, ofi
the other side the p:stern oflife. If there
is snnshiine on the two g1rand reaches of
their path, the shadow v:hich lies in the
midst is necessarily huit a Iclllporary
glooml. The mother's eyes imay swim as
she hears her little daitghicr sing her
baby brother to sleep on the couttage
tanreshold, her eyes may swim at the
thought how those wild ant l mioviingtones
might have been exalted by art. Such
art would have beein in itself a good; but
would this child then have been, as now,
about her Flather's business, which, in
rmistering to one of his little ones, she is
as surely as the archangel who suspends
inew systems of worlds in the furthest
voidtf Her occupation is now earnest
and holy: and what need the true mother
wish for more ?
What is poverty to those who are not
thus set in famnilies? What is it to the
solitary, or to the husbau and uwife who
have faith in each other's strength f If
they have plucked out the, stings of pride
and seltishness, and purified their vision
by faith, what is there to dread ? What
is their case? They have life, without
certainty how it'is to be nourished. They
do without certainty, like "the yboui
ravens which cry," and work for and
enjoy the subsistence of the day, leaving.
the morrow to take care of what concerns
it. If living in the drcuariest abodes of a
town, the light fromn within shints in the
dark place, and, dispelliug the mists of
worldly care, guides to tihe blessimng of
tending the sick, amld slharinig the lfootl of

goes into such retreats with hils lnmiern,
there imay bh best fined the gncron; alnd
the brave.-If, instead of the alleys of a
city, tlhey live under the sky, they are
yet lighter under their poverty. There,
however blauk the future miay lie before
them, they lItve to-day the living realit y
of lawns anid woods, and flocks in "the
green pasture tand hes:idd the still waters,"
which sileOtly rmild them of tthe Shep

strength of limb aud soul, the certainty
of a future, thougt they cannot see what,
and the assurance of progression, though
they cannot sec hlow, is poverty worth,
for thenmsel ves,more than a passing doubt ?
Can it ever be worth the torment of fear,
the bondage of subservience ?-tho com

free speech, the bending of the erect heald'

God and sympathy for umau, and placing
it aloft, fresh.and free, like morning on

and recoguize its realities fromn beitatlb

holy joy before which all sorrow 'and

When a cow has given its bountiful
supply of rich milk, what can be more
vexatious tilnl to see her lift up her heel,
upset the bucket, and spill the frothing,
creamy fluid upon the groudl ? Such an
inci lest is excessively mortifying; but
thie culprit is a creature without reason
or discretion, who has no consciousness
of the intense folly of pouring abroad so
recklessly what had been renlered so
generously. If a mant perl'oried a sim
ilas deed, what epithet could bhe found
too bitter and too harsh to describe his
bcsottted folly ? Yet there are men, and
in this part of the Union, just as-well,
the reader caan say what. Wo had a proof
of this the other day, when one of our
principal cotton-brokers called us into
his otlice, and there displayed before ius
the result of an exploration into the con
tents of ten bales ofcotton. Exposed be
fore us but previously hidden among the
cotton, several bushels of refuse material,
principally splinters, and chips, and little
solid "chunks" ot wood; also, dirt and rub
bish, such 'is will accumulate about a gin
hause floor, were in plaofsion. All these
suabstances being light, they had evi
dently been packed among the cotton in
mere carelessnees, mlore want of sense to
do batter, buit soume heavy pieces of iron,
that Ihad been packed amlong the cotton
with the peecious material, possibly
owed their presence there to some con
lnection between the weight of a heavy
substance and a valuable return for it at
the same price per pound as cottoil.
There were also many bent and broken
nails, some bearing marks made by the
machinery of th.lo gin. Their jIresence
was another proof of the stupidity of the
reckless packer, flr their contact with
that mlachiuery caused serious danger of
destruct ion by.fire. What mulnst we tllink
