VICE OF QBUICBLIHG
Since the da when Adam and Eve
were expelled from Paradise, discon
tent seems to be the normal condition
of the human famtlv. If there ever
was a time when men and women were
perfectly happy, we have no account
of it. But while this apparently in
nate and chronic disease apiicars to lie
of such rcMpectable origin, it has the
faculty of distributing itself into de
grees which are more or less distinct to
their character and inexcusable'in the
influence they exert. Grumbling, al
though a mild form of the malady, is
perhaps the most vicious and virulent
offshoot of the whole brood because
it is so utterly incurable. It is no ex
aggeration to say that the chronic
grumbler is a est all the world over.
He takes as many shades audi hues as
the chamelion. At one time he is a
political factor at another a domestic
curse; and under all shades and dis
guises, a social imieaaoe. Neither at
I norae abroaa.does he ever meet with
a,oett ana aenected vision, Providence
nas committed strance and inniimera

creature of the imagination, or if he
agrees to admit its nuritv and the sav
I ing graces of the atonement, he does
it with a sigh of regret that so much
confidence has been wasted upon a sys
tem so imperfect, and consoles his
heart with the reflection that if he had
only had the direction of Providence,
he could have arranged these things
so much better than theDeitv has
But it is at home in the privacy of
his domestic affections that the chron
ic grumbler comes out in his shining
colors. He is here a human exclama
tion point of astonishment and indig
nation. In his mind, the world, and
especially his own family, is in a con
spiracy to outrage his sensibilities and
assail his veins of what is right and
just. He finds fault with his wife
lectures the children, abuses the ser
vants and rails against mankind with
such an air of injured innocence that
the heart involuntarily turns towards
him as one of the greatest martyrs of
his age. In society he is perpetually
stumbling over abuses and running up
against crying evils. Humanity shud
ders at this good man's wretchedness,
for nine times out of ten our chronic
grumbler is a veritable Pecksniff. He
steals the livery of heaven to serve the
devil in. Yet his piety is apparently
so genuine that very few people can
be fonnd to doubt its sincerity. That
it is not sincere, however, a moment's
reflection ought to convince every un
prejudiced observer. A person who
is always finding fault must make his
selfishness and self esteem a criterion
of merit. A man who pursues his
own happiness at other peoples
wretchedness has none of the qualities
ont of which pure and generous Chris
tians are made ; his mind and body
are. instinct with selfish and unfeel
ing brutality. In fact, taken in any
guise,, a chronic grumbler is both a
public and private nuisance. He
Is an incubus upon his family and
an outrage upon the peace and good
order of society. In early days these
scolds were put in the pillory. The
old Puritans could not be deceived by
their mock pretentions to piety. The
person who delighted in other people's
misery was given some of his own
medicine. It ought to be so again.
There is perhaps no evil with which
society is so afflicted, so great as the
SOUTH PASS JKTTIE8.
There are recent telegrams from
New Orleans, stating that there has
been, and is now a steady improvement
in the depth of water in the channel
and in general availability of the South
pass for purposes of commerce. A
noticeable Jeatare in this direction is
the following announcements of arriv
als and departures :
"Port Eads, May 31.-Arrived ;
British steamship Borussia, jfrom Liv
erpool, via Coronas and' Havana ;
German hark Oagle Fascbe. from Bre
s; bark Enrique, from Havana.

Hudson, schooner John Atwood, bark
"Southwest Pass, May 31. No

This shows that the bulk of com
merce arriving at aad departiag from
New Orleans is taking to the new pass
isst sad of the old one, aad is the
strongest possible indicatioa of the en
tire success of Capt Eads' great enter
prise. The time has come when no more
important consideration can be brought
to the attention of the Western farmer
than is involved in this question of the
success or aosuooess of the jetties.
It hss been previously shown im the
Bajqo that Westers trade fa seekfaf
amorketpeysie traasaartatioa alone
nearly as much ae the producer re
(vives for hw grain. The cost of car
riage under the new and the old condi
tions will nearly double to the farmer
the value of everything he produces.
It is a fact shown by yean of disas
trous experience that no farming com-
muiiity can afford to rely on railroad
carriage for the Importation of its
grain. It casts too much, (' - oiivey -

New lork for shipment to Europe.
But even if these considerations were
equal, there is another advantage by
the Southern sea route which cannot I
lie too deeply impressed on the farm -
era of the West. It is that the route
from New Orleans to Liverpool is freer
from dangers which menace a sea voy
age than the one by Labrador and
Nova Scotia. On the Southern sea
route there are no rocks and icebergs
to encounter no adverse winds to de
lay navigation and assail the cargo.
The rate of insurance alone, is twenty
five per cent, less by the Southern sea
route than by the Northern route.
These are facts which cannot be
known at once, but which will gradu
ally impress themselves npon the
minds of the people. No community j
is more vitally interested in cheap
transportation than ours. The wealth
and the industry of the country are so
inextricably connected with it, and as
it is secured or lost will the profits of
production accrue or be lost to the til
lers of the soil. The Bazoo has fre
quently recurred to the subject and
proposes to keep an eye to it iu the
future, for the reason that it considers
it the most important matter that has
ever been brought to the considera
tion of the fanners of this country.

A heart-rending plaint has come out
of the Republican Israel, and Cephas

He lifts up his voice and wails : "The

To be more specific, we subjoin the
following extract fiom the Sedalia
IFedty Time (of date Thursday) :
"Since the officers of the First Na
tional Bank have taken their position
in the front of the Republican party,
to influence the best patronage of thin
Congressional District, we would solic

Hitherto the Bazoo, a Democratic ,
paper, has been their favorite. It is
doing their job work, and the princi
pal Sedalia job work of the M. K. & T.
It is perhaps unquestionably true
that the First. National Bank is the
leading factor of Republican poli
tics in Sedalia. It possesses brains
and These are influences
which are always felt. But that it
has undertaken to control the patron
age of this congressional district, is
something that the Bazoo does not
pretend to know anything about. If
true, however, the Republican- party
is to be congratulated that its patron
age is confided to hands at once so dis
creet and patriotic It is certainly to
the credit of the Bank that its officers
are wise enough to appreciate so excel
lent a paper as the Bazoo, and if they
continue to read it they may rely upon
obtaining from its columns the
latest news and everything of interest
in the field of legitimate journalism.
If, on the contrary, they find that it is
no longer an equivalent for the amount
of their subscription, they are privi
leged to drop it. The Bazoo is no pub
lic pauper or party incubus. It has
won success because it deserved it
It has never been a pensioner upon
public benevolence as the tooter of
a party born. it expresses the
views of its publiisber, and is indiffer
ent alike to the praise or blame of
individuals or political parties. It
these qualities possibly which has se
cured the isazoo so large a patronace.

It is more than probable that the
Bank, like the railroad, has its work
done where it can bs executed cheapest
and best. Individuals and corpora

busy with the soft music that always glad

blushing June roses, and beneath the fruit
laden branches of the cherry trees, his gen
tle words took a tender pathos and his
hopes grew radiant as a dream of beauty.
Bat even love cannot always supply the
place of cherries. They picked and ate
from the low, hanging branches, but the
fruit was scarce oa the under bouglis, and
the richest clusters grew out of reach, al

"To be sure vou can. I never thought of
that. It is so easy for a man to do those

and seek in the dimples of her chin. The

lover, certainly. He Imnnded from the
ground and reached the first limb without
any difficulty. From there it was but a
step to an outhanging branch, from which
the cherries could be reached with ease.
Rut that was the fatal step. Near the limb
wa a snag projecting from the body of the
tree, the remains of a limb sawed off the
previous year. The winds and the rains
had hardened it to the consistency of iron,
and when the false step was taken, and his
foothold gave way, that snag intervened
with terrible effect. He started down with

A SCENE NOT IN THE SILLS.
A ludicrous accident occurred at the
Wahiut Street Theatre, Philadelphia, last
week. While George W. Howard and
Mim Lizzie Dreese were waltxiasT together,
in tk iMtactof I-ntU's play, "ireart's
Ease," the lady tripped over a projection ia
the scenery, and fell to the Boor, bringing
the burly comedian down with her. The
house was packed and to say the aadieace
roared is scarcely doing justice to the sub
ject. As for the actors, they were cohvhI-
sed with laughter. Mrs. Wolcot fell on the
sofa in a paroxysm of fun, and Mr. Walcol
haw-hawed load enough to be heard across
the street, while Lotta boa need around like
a tarkey oa a hot gridiron, clapping her
delicious little hands, aad stretching her
sweet little mouth open until it resembled
the entrance of a pearly cavers. Mra;
Creese was so fall of laughter that she was
aaable to get ap until assisted by Mr.
Howard ; but that Prince of Mom us kept
a sober countenance, aad, advancing to the
footlights) said: "She don't waat to do it

tea minutes, and interrupted the plav.

Great Bsmsgs to Crops in Lsifcy-
stte snd Say Counties.
A dispatch fmm Lexington savs the
heaviest fall of rain that has probably ever
taken place in this portion of the State
commenced early Friday night. Front
midnight until a late hour in the mornine
the rain descended in perfect torrents.
Much damage has been (lone to the ktowieht
crops, and it Ls thought that several bridcea
, in the interior have been washed away. The
rise in the Missouri at that point within
the pant twenty-four hours is unprecedented
and it is feared that the bottom lands in
Ray will he submerged, in which event the
lorn of crop will be incalculable. Many
persons who were in attendance at the com
mencement exercises of the Baptist Col
lege were forced to remain in the hall all
night in consequence of the rtorm.

A Ssrrant as Kasw Her Bosiasss.
A lady on Third street has beea greatly
troubled with colored servant girk. Alter
discharging several for incompetaacy, she
found a treasure who could cook to per
fection and manage affair without cos
stant supervision. TXiighted to be re
lieved of the constant oversight which had
beea necessary formerly, the aew "girl'
had matters pretty much her owa way. Is
a few days, however, it was evident that
the largest pait of the family took their
meals in the bara, if oae judged from the
quantity of victuals that found their way
thitherward. She "was married," she
said, aad then asked permission to feed her
mas. This was gives, aad the only differ
ence observable afterward wae that the man
eat ia the kitchen instead of the bars.
Soon another young mas was added to tha
kitchen family. This "was her son." The
domestic had so maay things to attend to
that she acquired a habit of leaving the
house immediately after breakfast, throw
ing a cloth over the uncleared table, and
oaly coating back just ia time to gat din
ner. After dinner she would absent herself
'till time for sapper, after which she wm
invisible till morning. It so happened that
the lady concluded to leave town for a day
or two, and calling the girl made 'her
promise to stay at home daring her abuses
aad attend to the work faithfully. This
was done, but no sooner was the mistress
out of the house, thaa the holiday com
menced, and all the darkies ia town were
at home ia all parte of the hoase. The
bureaus aad wardrobes aere ransacked, aad
their contents speedily adorned the panoas
of the jubilant freebooters. The family

Judgs Hill's Opiaioa.
A correapondent of the Missouri Jfrpua
irwii, writing from this city, says that ia
an interview with Judge Hill ia refer ca
to the Brownsville horror, the Judge had
stated thai "there were ao groaadn ca
which the charges were predicated.''
If Judge Hill said aaythiag of the kiad,
he stated rAsi aus not true. There may bs
ao law to prevent such aa oleosa aa was
committed at Brownsville, but to say that
there are "no grounds oa which the charges
are predicated,'' is aa assumption which
neither Judge Hill or aay oae else ia justi
fied ia making. There are a great maay
good lawyers who entertain the opiaioa
that such aa oMeaceas was committed at
Brownsville m 'punishable by ths lass of
this State, aad it is barely pomiWa that it
will be amda to .ppaar so ia spite of ths
fact that a criaaiaal Jadgt, wheat duty it
is to see that the laws are viatica ted, eater
taias the opiaioa that so groaads exist tor
