REAL ESTATE.
A Quiet Market During the Week
Just Closed.
A Strong Demand Anticipated for the
Spring.
Taking it as a whole the real estate market
has been comparatively quiet during the past
week. The weather has been unfavorable for
the business, and the consequence is that
transactions have been only moderate. All
dealers report a good active inquiry. Messrs.
Cochran <fc have sold two dwelling
houses and ""a 5 business corner, the latter be
in? the southwest corner of Laurel and Mac
kubin streets for 34.900. The purchaser will
ereet therein immediately four stores and
two dwellings. A number of sales of lots in
Wright's addition, late Ramsey's, on Summit
avenue near the Short Line bridge, have been
made by the same firm. Messrs. Cochran
Newport have advices from Mr. Wright
indicating his purpose to build ten houses on
his addition in the spring. This firm during
tbe week has closed up oue loan for $25,000
and two for (15,000 each, besides a number
for smaller amounts. The other real estate
firms have also been doing a steady, regular
business, that is regarded as quite satisfac
tory considering the season of the year and
the disagreeable weather.. There has been
all along, and is now, a good healthy
inquiry for business and residence prop
erty, and there is every intention
of a good, strong, healthy market in the
spring, not a boom in the common aecepta
t;< n of that term, that is, sales for unreason
ably inflated prices, and delusive values, but
a solid, vigorous and active movement for
substantial improvement.

MASKED BURGLARS IDENTIFIED.
They Are iu Limbo Up the Creek.
Yesterday morning Chief of Police Clark,
Detectives Walsh and Keneally visited Min
neapolis for the purpose of seeing the slug
gers Sanders, Blake and McLaughlin, who
are in limbo for robbing and assaulting a
Chinaman a few nights ago. They were ac
companied by Mr. Zed Ferguson, whose store
on Thirteenth street was entered by masked
robbers a few nights ago, and Mr. Arm
strong, the gentleman who was present when
the attempted robbery took place. On visit
ing the Minneapolis lockup the trio of roughs
were brought out for inspection and
they were at once identified by Mr. Fer
guson and Mr. Armstrong as the men who
had entered the store. The officers could
not bring them here for trial for the reason
that charges are against them in Minneapo
lis. Upon returning to St. Paul ChieT Clark
ordered the release of the Moran boys, John
son and Flaherty, who were held on suspi
cion. The latter were ordered to leave town
without delay.
The Lookout Spring-.
The Lookout spring, gushing out of the bluff
on Ramsey street hill, is still producing in inex
haustible quantities, the most delightful spring
water of the utmost purity. There is no water
accessible to St. Paul, purer or
more desirable than this for drink
ing, or for household and culinary pur
poses. Mr. Carpenter, the proprietor of the
spring, is prepared to deliver promptly, on short
notice this water to families, and fill cisterns on
the most reasonable terms. Families trying this
«xoeHsat spring water will afterward hardly
desire any other.

provided that all persons to

of the state experimental farms,) be first re
quired to agree to receive the same, take
good care in the culture thereof, report to the
society from time to time when called upon,
and after the grass growth, furnish a rea
sonable number of scions to the society for
redistribution, the society to keep a record of
stock collected and distributed, and of re

same, or an abstract thereof, at such annual
meeting, or whenever the same may be call

Second—Productiveness of tree and size
and quality of fruit equal to the wealthy.
Third —Keeping qualities equal to the wil
low twig.
If either of said varieties fail in the forego
ing qualities and yet remaining in the rank
of 1st, 2d or 3d best of all varieties entered,
it shall be awarded a reasonable premium,
according to its merit at the discretion of the
society.
Entries must he made in writing annually
with the secretary of the society on or before
the first day of September in each year and

bership was discussed although that of last

The New Roller Plow.
A valuable improvement. The Globe
takes pleasure in informing its readers of
anything to the advantage of the northwest.
Last summer a few gentlemen of energy.and
means purchased the exclusive right to man
ufacture and sell a new kind of plow. This
plow is similar to the old style, except it has
rollers inserted in the mold board and land
slide, also two wheels underneath, which
carry its weight. The idea is to save the
friction, the sod coming in contact with the
rollers, instead of the mold board, landslide
and bottom. This plow has had many pub
lic and private tests,all of which have demon
strated a saving in draft of from twenty-five
to thirty-five per cent., or equal in heavy
plowing to saving one horse. The owners
having satisfied themselves, as well as many
experts, of the superior merits of their plow,
formed themselves intojthe ''St.|Paul and Min
neapolis Roller Plow company," with office
at room 20, Fire and Marine building,
this city. The company has spent consider
able money, and is now in a position to
supply the demand and establish agents
throughout the northwest. It is only fair to
predict that this company will make the plow
for the west, and become one of our leading
manufacturing concerns.
Norwegian Immigration.
Secretary Young, of the board of immigra
tion, yesterday received a letter from U. S.
Johnson, of Minneapolis, who is now travel
ing in Norway. Mr. Johnson says there are
a number of immigrants coming over with
him in the spring, but that the immigration
from that country this year will not be so
fjreat ss it wr.3 last.
CAPT.STARKEY'S MUSE.
He Lets it Soar to The Delight of The
Pioneer Settlers at Their Ban
quet.
At the annual banquet of the Ramsey
County Pioneer association at the Merchants
hotel Friday night, the following humorous
poem was read by Captain James Starkey:
■ I
ThevRamscy conrty old settlers
Ta the yea- : -'•••-four"
Me; Col. . lien on ■ s dining room floor,
To celebra.. aes,
By testing his wines,
And have a good time, "sans galore."
When all at once with eyes dilate,
Down went the colonel's knife and plate,
While a spectre floated with ink and pen,
And inscribed in bold figures No. 10.
Each old settler then turned in his chair,
Bowing politely to his honor, the mayor,
Wpo altho' so far, and yet so near,
requested them all to be of good cheer.
ri^hrray the bold with mind serene,
9B9d on the subject he'd oft been seen,
And officially advised to stop the ruction,
By one and all resorting to suction.
Cheer, after cheer, followed this good advice.
On memory's tablet appeared Edmund Rice,
When Bassy, the knight of great renown,
Declared the. mayor was out of town.
At this Chief Clark put the knight in his pocket
And hung on his neck a beautiful locket.
Inscribed with the legend, "Requiescat-ln-pace,"
Until Bressett returns from his lost horse chase.
Van Slyke then arose and addressed the chair
With accents wild, crying, hark ! hark! hark I
Let's all pool in and make a pretty park,
And elect Judge Goodrich the next city mayor.
No, no: said Gilllllan, the dealer in water;
I'm opposed to any such terrible slaughter.
I've spent my money in sheet-iron and cement,
The people's money can never go through that
Hold on, cried Sim Folsom, let me have my say.
I must have money for the right-of-way.
Jo Robert is mad and won't sell his land
Without a large price paid to him in hand.
President Delano, "don't you know," camo to
the front
With measured words, but yet very blunt,
And declared all this bosh a terrible pill
For all the good doctors on St. Anthony hill.
Jo Oppenheim to enquire about schools,
And to know if, as charged, they were all fools.
Just as you like, said Benz, the bold Teuton,
With his bold bearing and pure elocution.
Hold on, cries Abe Elfeit, let me at this juncture
nave a chance to most unmercifully puncture
All the real estate bubbles I cannot handle,
After which at the workhouse 1 shall likely dangle.
Capt, Berkey denied the right to defeat
Any of his sidewalk contracts on the street,
But hoped on high salaries to go very slow,
Provided his pay for work went on "don't you
know"'
Dillon, Donnelly, Dowlan and Doran,
Said they formed a respectable quorum
To represent fuel and temperance the very best,
Donnelly "undertaking"' toluy all to rest.
MK'lung said it was false, decidedly rank.
To claim "no channel" on the west side bank.
Langevin said, bank or no bank, the fact is,
I pays one awful great big pile of taxes.
Major Newson's brow all flushed for victory,
Swore he'd write up every one's history.
Good enough, said Driscoll, you crooked elf,
Only when writing it up, don't forget yourself.
Harlan P. Hall, who's ever ready on call,
Commented on Wheelock's mental downfall,
While Castle descanted on Hubbard's oily way
And gave Hoffman to know, he came to stay.
John Patterson defended the Board of Health,
Declared they worked not for filthy pelf.
But sometimes, after cleaning out with pride,
There might be such a thing as an equal divide.
General Sanborn smiling could hardly determine,
Whether he would don the judicial ermine;
Judge Burr hoped he would, excelsior's the cry,
I may get there myself "in the sweet bye and
bye."
R. O. Strong arose and said, 'Black' was his name,
Who was so suddenly ushered into Fame;
With Hughson out and Bowiin in
The mighty chief's troubles at once begin.
Beaumont said, the county's ungrateful,
The judgment of court exceedingly hateful;
Doctor Steele lamented that bond's possession,
Constantly caused him great mental depression.
Dave Burk said he had carriage? and sleighs,
But believed that politics had many crooked
ways;
Will Merriam said we are as straight as a string,
Only'give us a call, we'll do the right thing.
The building inspector, both modest and fair,
Declined to sing, or whistle an air;
Comptroller Roche cut all singing short,
By introducing his annual report.
Fairchild said the report was good enough,
But real estate should be free of such stuff;
I But says Treasurer Reis, the thing can't b*dohe,
Real estate and taxes are always one.
Isaac Heard arose so child-like and bland
And said to all, I extend my hand.
"Tempus fugit," who the devil cares?
I call on Jim Egan to say prayers.
Reverently Jim knelt at Allen's shrine.
Never once forgetting the beautiful wine,
And ended by calling on all not to forget
This jolly Old Settlers' time—"You bet."
About this time the genius of poetry raised
Its inspiring mantle lightly from the con
tributor, thence followed the sweet com
munion of the Old Settlers present, which
was as a delightful dream. Old memories
clustered around, each to the other recounted
some act he had performed in the great
drama of aiding to build up a prosperous
state, and create our own lovely city; when
silently and sorrowfully our own souls seemed
to go out and for the while join those who
had g(tae before us to the blessed spirit land.
'Tis like sweet music in the air we hear,
Like rippling waters falling soft and low.
With souls enraptured do we list, yet fear.
'Tis not such music as we mortals know.
It wafts the soul from earthly things away
Leaving behind the senseless frame of clay.
Friends, kindly faces crowd around ns there,
Friends loved the better since they passed away.
Blest re union on this happy night,
Humbly we bow before Almighty power,
Relying on Thy most loving might,
To be with us in the darkest hour.
INDEPENDENT REPUBLICANS.
They Alpet and Resolve in Favor of
Administrative Reform.
New York, Feb. 23. —The second meet
ing of the Independent Republicans was
held here to-day. There were present Col.
Schurz, ex-Governor Potts, of New Jersey;
Richard H. Dana, Henry II. Spragne and E.
B. Hall, of Massachusetts; E. K. Martin, of
Pennsylvania; Gen. T. C. Barlow, F. B.
Chandler, T. M. Perot, of Pennsylvania; P.
F. Wood, of Michigan, and others. George
J. Crocker, of Boston, presided, and E. Dun
bar Lockwood, of Philadelphia, acted as sec
retary. The following preamble and resolu
tions, offered by Gov. Potts, were adopted:
WHEREAS, Consistent and faithful ad
herance to the principles of administrative re-
form is absolutely essential to the vitality and
success of the Republican party; and
Whereas, Events have shown that dis
regard of that principle has led to party de
feat in several of the most important states;
and
Whereas, The adoption of a similarly
mistaken policy would lead to defeat in the
next presidential election;
Resolved, That it is indispcnsible to the
success of the Republican party that the char
acter, record and political aspirations of its
candidates for president, should be such as
to warrant entire confidence in their readi
ness to defend the advances already made
towards divorcing the public service from
party politicians, and continue their ad
vances until reparation has been made final
and complete.
The following was also passed:
Resolved, That no interference with the
free choice of delegates to the national con
vention by congressional districts should
anywhere be tolerated.
Jtaohed] That the interests of the Republi
can party imperatively demands that the
management of the state and national cam
paign be confined to men whose character
and record are such as to command the un
hesitating support and confidence of mem
bers of the party.
One would reasonably suppose that it
would be difficult to collect a biil from a
leather merchant when he buys leather and
hides.
PLUCK AND PBAYEB.
There wa'n't any use o' fretting,
An' I told Obadiah so,
For ef we couldn't hold on to things.
We'd just got to let 'em go.
There were lots of folk that'd suffer
Along with the rest of us,
An' it didn't seem to be wurth our while
To make sueh a dreffle fuss.
To be snre, the barn was 'most empty,
An' com an' pertaters sc'ace,
An' not much of anything plenty an' cheap
But water—an' apple-sass.
But then—as I told Obadiah—
It wan't any use to groan,
For flesh an" blood couldn't stand it; an' he
Was nothing but skin an' bone.
But, laws! ef you'd only heerd him,
At any hour of the night,
A-prayin' out in that closet there,
"Twould have set you crazy quite.
I patched the knees of those trowsers
With cloth that was noways thin,
Bat it seemed as ef the pieces wore out
As fast as I set 'em in.
To me he said mighty little
Of the thorny way we trod.
But at least a dozen times a day
He talked it over with God.
Down on his knees in that closet
The most of his time was passed,
For Obadiah knew how to pray
Much better than how to fast.
But I am that way contrairy
That ef things don't go jest right,
I feel like rolling my sleeves np high
An' getting ready to fight.
An' the giants I slew that winter
I ain't goin' to talk about;
An' I didn't even complain to God.
Though I think that He found it out.
With the point of a cambric needle
I druv the wolf from the door,
For I knew that we needn't starve to death
Or be lazy because we were poor.
An' Obadiah he wondered
An' kept me patching his knees.
An' thought it strange how the meal held out.
An 1 stranger we didn't freeze.
But I said to myself in whispers,
"God knows where His gift descends;
An' 'tisn't always that faith gits down
As far as the finger ends,"
An' I wouldn't have no one reckon
My Obadiah a shirk.
For some, you know, have the gift to pray,
And others the gift to work.

Article X.
The first tailor, first physician, first Sunday
and day schools, first survey of town site,
first hotel, first organization of a steamboat
line, all originated in the year 1S47,
and the little band of settlers of that
year began to assume form and
to exhibit marks of civilization. Of course
affairs were in acrude condition, but a mould
ing process then commenced, which has been
going on ever since. Amoug the potential
elements which conduced to this cud was the
establishment of schools; schools, the great
basis upon which all society rests; schools,
the shimmering lights which penetrate the
darkness of barbarism and bigotry; schools,
the bulwarks of the nation's liberties;
schools, the great elevators of
the people and the refining
powers of the modern age. To these ele
ments we may attribute the first start and
onward march of the prosperity of our city
from that day to this.
MORE OLD SETTLERS.
Aaron Foster was born in Pennsylvania,
1817, came to St. Paul in 1847; was a car-
-penter-by trade.; elected a justice of the
peace; enlisted In the army; died about 1814.
We did not know him. Daniel Hopkins was
born in New Hampshire, 1787; came to
Saint Paul in 1847; opened a store and did
considerable business; owned a good deal
of real estate in the city, among which was
a lot on the corner of Third and Jackson
streets, for which he. paid $200; now worth
$35,000. He died in 1852, aged 05 years.
Wm. C. Renfro, was a young Virginian
of ability and education, and came to St.
Paul, in 1847. He was a graduate of medi
cine; very social in his nature, and yet there
was an air of dejection about him. He was
found frozen to death In his night clothes,
under a tree, on the 3d of January, 1848. It
seems that he indulged too freely
in drink, and in a crazed con
dition of mind wandered from his home,
then on "Prospect Hill," towards town, and
becoming benumbed with the cold, fell and
died. Intoxicating drinks in the end, will get
the better of the bravest and the best. Fred
Oliver who came to St. Paul in 1847, is still
living in West St. Paul. G. A. Fournier who
came the same year, Is dead.
TOWN* SITE SURVEYED.
This year a town site was surveyed and the
place was known as 'St. Paul Proper.' The tract
of land laid out for a town site, embraced
ninety acres, and included the present busi
ness portion of the city. Real estate was
then so scarce that every available means were
taken to save It, and so we find that the Pur
veyors or originators of our town plot crook
ed our streets, and cut corners and made
our thoroughfares narrow in order to secure
space enough to build a city on, and they
succeeded admirably well. Had there been
more land probably our streets would have been
broader, but crooked and narrow as they are,
thus commenced the nucleus of the present
Saint Paul.
AN ENLARGED HOTEL.
The old "Saint Paul house," of which
mention has been made, was greatly enlarged
this year by J. W. Bass, and here good ac
commodations could be found, and here the
elite and aristocracy of the place congregated
to be entertained by "mine genial host."
When the old logs were taken
down, tp give place to the begin
ning of the present edifice, thev
were found to be perfectly sound, and the
gavel of the "Old Settlers' Association" was
made out of some of the wood. In 1853 the
building stood upon quite a bank, and we
remember quite vividly, of crawling up on a
ladder to g«t into the house. At one time in
this building the postofflce was kept; at an
other time the Masons and Odd Fellows met:
at another time the "High-Cock-a-Lorums"
convened and issued the proclania^ion for the
organization of the Territory. ▼
FIRST STEAMBOAT I.iNE.
This year witnessed also the organization
of the first steamboat line, consisting of the
solitary steamer "Argo," which was designed
to run once a week from Galena to Saint
Paul. A real-full sized, full-fledged company
was organized to effect this result, and it was
duly effected, Previously stray boats only
made their way to our city, but now the shrill
whistle of the little Argo evoked shouts
of praise* from the crowd
which congregated on the levee to witness
her arrival. Capt. Russell Blakeley was then
clerk of the Argo, and when she sank and
the Dr. Franklin took her place, he was clerk
of that also. He subsequently became the
captain of several large boats, but as he did
not come to St. Paul to reside until 1856, we
shall speak more fully of him in the events
of that year.
WISCONSIN* LEGISLATURE.
It should be borne in mind that up to this
year, Minnesota was simply a partof Wiscon
sin ; we had no legislature, so Henry Jackson
was elected to represent the interests of the
people in the territorial legislature of our now
adjoining state —Wisconsin. But there was
an uneasy feeling among the people, a de
sire for local government, and this made it
self manifest in the year which we have just
now reached—1848.
a new^ school house—1848.
A ladies' sewing circle aided very material
ly in procuring funds for a new school house,
this year, which was also used for religious
purposes, lectures, etc. It was built in the
latter part of August 1848, and stood on
Third street where the late Dr. Alley's block
now stands. The building was burned in
1857.
the rmaT protestaxt sppv^jts.
The first Protestant sermon in St. Taul
was preached In 1844, the second and third
in 184«, and the fourth in
1847, by Dr. Williamson. The
first prayer meeting was held in Novem
ber, 1843, and H. M. Rice tendered $200 and
ten lots towards the erection of the first church.
And even a temperance societv was organ
ized, so that, really, the barbaric influence of
the Indians and thedeteriorating power of the
half breeds,began to give way to the refining
influences of schools, sobriety and religion.
"OUT IX THE COLO."
Wisconsin was admitted into the Union as
a state, in 1848,so that Minnesota being or
iginally a part of Wisconsin, when she took
her place arnongT"the family circle, was left
"out in the cold,"' but the matter of a terri
torial existence was agitated, and the first
public meeting ever held in this city
was called this year to consider
this question; and subsequently a conven
tion was held at Stillwater. This convention
framed resolutions in favor of a territorial
organization, and then proceeded to the elec
tion of
THE FIRST DELEGATE,
and Hon. Henry II. Sibley, of Mendota, was
chosen. Mr. Sibley was also elected at the
same time delegate to congress
from Wisconsin, so that, in reality, he rep
resented Minnesota and Wisconsin jointly.
TITLE TO THE TOWN* SITE.
This year the land upon which St. Paul
stands, having been surveyed, was purchased
for the proprietors, aud although a good
many hungry land men were present at the
sale, nobody bid against them, and St. Paul
became a fixture lor all time. II. H. Sibley,
Louis Robert and A. L. Larpenteur were
chosen trustees for the owners.
ONE STOKE —(HEAP PROPERTY.
In 1848 the place was a mere collection of
huts, with Indians and birch bark canoes
promiscuously plenty, while at this time we
find only one log grocery, the principal store
in the place. This year John R. Irvine
bought the whole tract of land from St. Peter
street up to Fort street for $300, no*? worth
one Of two millions. Where the City Hull
stands was then a large grove of trees. The
first store was on the corner of Bench aud
Jackson streets. In 1S47 there was not a
sawed frame building in the town aud onlv
a few frame buildings in 1849, except the
old hewed frame building on Fourth street.
A RUNN'IXG STREAM —THE ''OLD CASTLE"—
LOTT MOFFETT.
Very few who stand on the eornor of Jack
son and Fourth streets aud gaze up at that
elegant building erected by C. D. (lllfillan, at
the cost of $150,000, or scan the Davidson
block, an the opposite corner, or more close
ly inspect tbe erection of another elegant
edifice, to be occupied by the First National
Bank, on still another corner, can scarcely
realize that here, in the year 184$, was once
a deep ravine, at the Iwttom of which flowed
a stream of water, and over a bridge the peo
ple went their way up Jackson street to a hill
near where the Capital Bank now is, and
then came to a halt—for this was the en 1 of
the road. Down deep in this ravine a mau
by the name of Lott MotTett erected a house,
and here he kept boarders.
Mr. Moffctt was born in New York in 1803,
and died in Saint Paul in 1870, aged 07
years. His early education was somewhat
neglected, yet he was a man of strong, ster
ling principles, and did a great deal of good
in the day in Which he lived. He served his
trade as a miR-Wright; learned the
business of woolen manufacturing, and
ran a mill. Iu July, 1848, lie
came to St. Paul and purchased the land on
the St. Anthony road, known as the Larpen
teur farm. He disposed of this and went to
Arkansas; engaged in mercantile business,
bridge building and lead mining, and return
ed to St. Paul in ls.vi. He waa not a politi
cian, but a leading Mason; was married
three times, and was universally respected.
personal pr.i i i.ivniTiEs.
Mr. Moffctt was an eccentric but an honest
mau, always working, always striving to
make mankind better. He was a strict tem
perance man—indeed, we may say, violently
so, and yet he was kind aud popular. From
time to time he added stories to his building
until it peeped above the level of the street,
and then, with his own hand, he added other
stories until, when he died, he had what was

dried up; the ravine has been filled in, the

dead; and now rises in grandeur the incom

crossing of these twostreets,is where the busi

goes up the other comes down. The motion
is perpetual and the end is certain. Some
are dropping from the sea-saw board of life,

The bell is now silent, and like its maker,
gone to rest, pushed out of existence by the
new Market hall clock, which regulates the
. hours. On the corner of Fifth and Jackson
streets was a hill that intercepted travel, and
on this hill Mr. Illingsworth, an Englishman,
built a small house, and on the first floor ran
the original watch and clock establishment in
St. Paul, and ourokl city hall bell, as It used
to strike the hours, was a reminder that it
wss made by his skillful hands. When the
city cut Jackson street through, the owner
built the first story of'his house where tbe hill
was. of brick, leaving the second story wood,
and then in a few years more, when both the
proprietor and his wife were laid in their
graves, the old land mark was torn down and
in its place arose imposing brick buildings.
Mr. Illingsworth was a large, fleshy man.
with a fine countenance, and bis wife was
equally as fleshy. They came to St. Paul
some time iu PC,'ii or '."12, aud tie ran the
first watch establishment in the city. He
was a very ingenious mechanic, well
Versed in his profession, slow and methodi

children, several of whom still reside here.
He was "A fine old English gentleman, all
of the olden time."
And so goes the world! The man who
made the clock is gone, the place where the
clock was made is gone, and the music of
the bell itself is gone, and an echo from the
past comes back and asks—
"Whither are we going ?"
and it echos back again—
"Going! Going! Going!"

A Tragedy that Turned out a Farce-
Matters of Jfinor Interest.
Sometimes even what looks at the first
blush to be in the nature of a crime or a
tragedy, turns out to be a roaring farce.
8uch a denouement transpired In the police
court yesterday morning, and two young
men all of a sudden lelt the room with
hearts as light as the proverbial feather. An
account was given in Thursday's Globe of
the arrest of John Snyder and Albert Helah
on the charge of attempted rape. The com
plaint was made by a respectable appearing
Gprman woman named Anna Wenzel, and
according to her account the affair looked
most serious. Yesterday the serious
part of the affair was knocked
out of time by the statements of
several witnesses, and as intimated the
matter ended after the fashion of a roaring
farce. It appears that the parties were well
acquainted, and that they had been drinking
together. During the debauch Mr-. Wenzel,
as the defendants put it. attempted to spank
them, throwing her arms around the young
men and teasing them by pulling their mus
tache. During the fun they
feU on the floor, when one
of the men attempted to take liberties. After
hearing tbe testimony the case was dismissed.
Agnes Kinderman was arraigned on the
charge of slapping a little girl. It proved to
be a neighborhood quarrel, and she was
compelled to give bonds to keep the peace.
Thomas Brennan was charged with disor
derly conduct. He was one of the trio of
duffers who made the attack on (iebhardt's
saloon a few nights ago. It cost him just
twenty-five bills.
The ease of Thomas Brennan, charged
with selling liquor without a lieOTi= •. was dis

LIGHT Or LIGHTS. ENLIGHTEN ME!
[From the German of B. Schmolko.]
BT REV. J. B. RASKt**, D. D.
Light of lights, enlighten me '.
Be this now my soul's day-dawning;
Touch my eye*, th.it I may see
With light of Heavn's own morning;
Let these hours of Sabbath shine
With a glory caught from thine.
Source of all earth's pnre delight.
Let thy stream* r>( grac* now reach m*.
Touch my lips and heart aright:
Thy high piaJsae, Master, teach me.
Bless the word with pow'r untold.
That it bear a hundred fold.
Let the fire of God come down
On the off"ring that I lay thee;
Be my wisdom, Bght and crown.
Less some frailty should betrav me;
Lest strange fire to Thee be bron'gJU,
Which thine altar knowcth not.
Here, to-day, and through all time,
"Holy, holy, holy," tinging.
Let me mount on wing sublime.
To Heav'n's gate my praises bringing;
Foretaste here of what shall be
Heav'n itself to souls like me.
Re«t in me, and I in thee I
Paradise within preparing;
Let me now thy glory »ee,
Feed love's flame with oil unsparing.
Till my soul with love divine.
Burn as steadily as thine.
Sacred be this holy day.
All earth's vanitios departed;
In thy temple I will stay
With the meek and lowly-hearted;
Nothing will, and nothing do,
In Thee rest, till Sabbath's through.
Greater Thon, than Solomon,
<'f Thy wisdom here partaking,
I will kneel me at thy throne.
Thou to me, thy life's bread breaking,
Thus Thy liirht upon me break
And a beauteous Sabbath make.
