These commendations from three of the

It drifts about on the seas of popular fa

many days" of watching, waiting, pa
tience, and often hopelessness. Its most
jjralefuJ, if not its must substantial re
turn, is the knowledge t hat its work has
not been thrown away, and that in its
wandering, silent, and apparently tin
recognized labor, tt has found a lodg

It is a pleasure to us to have been able

We are proud of the attitude taken by
Governor ImjwIc in his reply to Secretary i
Proctor in regard to the purpose of the I
war department to locate certain cap-1
tive Apache Indians in the mountain j
country of North Carolina. We arc glad j
the views expressed recently in Tim- Or
izi.n have such emphatic endorsement
from our chief executive.
Governor Fnwle neatlv brings to the
notice of Secretary Proctor the subject
ol "abandoned lands" in the old Stale of
Vermont, insinuating very humorously
the decay that has fallen upon that an
cient hotbed of humanitai inn ideas. As
she has shrunk ami shrivelled under their
application, and has ceased to lc the
prosperous home of the white man. these I
ideas may receive new impulse by plant-!
