Mr. Svmszr has introduced in the

It retrains to n whether the
gOTeraesnt will interfere its much
cJd liiisiaaee in quieting the un
happy disturbances now existing in
Chicot county, Arkansas. The state
authorities are not equal to the task
the. colored militia of course will take
sides with their own race. The case is
one in which both law and humanity
call for the aid of the general govern
ment, but the riot broke out over a
week ago, and when last heard from
the inhabitants were still at the mercy
of an infuriated mob.
Radical newspapers say the ob
jections to Grant as president are
wholly against the man himself that
the sole question among the democrats
and his opposers generally, is "how to
' beat Grant." This is true and the
reason is because he is the neplm ultra
radicalism its spirit and its ctnbod
iment in one. In his administration,
the people have had a specimen of rad
ical rule how it works and what it
leads to. The defeat of Graut is the
overthrow of Radicalism, and is the
one object heartily desired by the
democracy and by all the friendi of
"It is dangerous to swap horses
while crossing a stream," said Lincoln.
This was a safe maxim in 1SG4, and
the administration thinks it safe now
and are therefore engaged in the lauda
ble attempt to bring on a war with
Spaiu. The New York Sun says in
this connection : "All of our advices
' from Washington aud elsewhere, lead
1 to the conviction that as a last desper
'ate means of re-electing Grant, his
' managers contemplate bringing on a
' war with Spain, with Cuba for its ire-
'text. This they think will make his
' re-uomiuation certain when everything
' else is bound to fail."
The year has rolled around, just as

Ifr-In a recent later to the Now York
Iruteptndtnt, Father Hyaclntho sets forth
bU religious position with great clearness.
While preferring Protestantism to the
ultrnmonlnno papism of O'O adherents of
inioiituility, lio objects to mo lormer
that while oxnltlng tlio WMo It reject tlio
traditions which complement nnd explain
tlio sncrwl writing". Ho will tliorpforo rc

rightly tinilorjtood, upholds tlio wholo of
Jtcvolntton, written nml spoken, nnd U
founded not on tlio individual conscience
Imt tlio universal nnd constant tciiclilnir
of tlio church. Whether tho irood fnthcr
enn find iinywlicrn, except in Ills own Im
aginntinn, nny such consistent teaching, is
for him to determine.

case of scarlet fevor In thnt city hopefully

soil of W. A. Foitor, Esq. On Snturdny
evening he was so far gono as to be tinnblo

hope of complete rccovory.
8gu It has long been tho custom to issue
rations of tobacco to tho convicts in tho
Michigan state prison. The nmountannu
ally paid for this purchase has often
amounted lo $2,000 an average of $3 or
ft to each prisoner. Mr. Morris, the
agent, has offered to supply each prisoner
who will forego the use of tho weed, with
any one of the standard magazines for tho
year. About seventy have already chosen
the magazines instead of tobacco, and
more will probably follow suit.
feaT It is said that once in a company
of literary gentlemen, Mr. Webster was
asked if he could comprehend how Jesus
Christ could be both God and man. " No,
sir,' he replied; and added, "I should bo
ashamed to aeVnowledge him as my Sav
iour if I could comprehend him. If I
could comprehend him, be could be no
greater than myself. Sach is my Inability
to save myself, that I feel I need a super
human Saviour, one so great and glorious
that I cannot compreLend him. ''
It is probable that Lord Napier
who represented Great Britain in Wash
ington during part of Buchanan's presi
dency, and who afterward served in
nearly every court in Europe, will succeed
Earl Mayo in tho vice-royalty of India
next year. The office is almost equal to
the chief magistracy of any state in Eu
rope, and far exceeds, in salary and emolu
ments, the presidency of tho United States.
Beside two palaces, th salary is f 125,
000 a year.
f-" A young man, " strapped," recent
ly went to Galena, and, in order to secure
board and lodging, delivered himself as a
murderer, saying that he, at such a time,
killed a policeman in Boston. The chief

Galena that no such murder was ever com
mitted in Boston. The young man is yet

Msst of us remember days which aro
Bet in tho years of our childhood as gems
are sot in rings. In later lifo theso spark
ling points of time become effulgent ravs
rising liko huns; Hushing the household
sky with genial tones; warming its gray
with color. To unnumbered millions
Christmas has been such n ray. To sad
hearts it has brought gladnes". It has
stood liko a rock by tho sea. The dark
waves como moaning against it, to bo
caught and tossed into silver spray and
dash of rainbow". Though tho drops fall
back iignlnandaroloitin thnjoynu. ocoan;
though Christmas laughter fettles soon
into tho moan of care, tho next tido shall
repeat tho benediction. For, when Christ
mas is gone Christmas is coming. Though
tho yule log blazei but once a year, sparlcs
of its sacred llamo still linger on tho hearth
and mingle with tho fires daily kindled
whero it has lain. Tho benign c'ffect of a
merry Christmas docs not ceaio when the
tapers arc extinguished.
