Th,. dear old t:nis, my Pear!.
If I mt:iy use the prety m wune
I cal'ed you when a gidl.
You are s.o young, while time of me
II is made a cruel pr.y,

One g:-ace of youth avay:
The same sweet face, the same sweet
smile,
The same little figure, too!
What did you s:y ? "It was perchance
Your mother that I knew ?"
Ah, yes, of course, it must have been;
And yet the same you seem;
And for.a moment all these years
Fled from me like a dream.
Then what your mother would not
give,
Permit me, dear to take
The old man's privilege-a kiss
Just for your mother's sake.

I don'tknow what may come after
us or wh;at a revolution the uext
twenty years may bring forth, but
one thing is certain that the last
twenty years have made a greater
change in New York City than the
preceding hundred. It is simply
tiiat the city has enlarged, it is so
completely changed in everything
that a Rip Van Winkle who went to
sleep twenty years ago waking up
to-day would scarcely recognize the
city in which he went to sleep.
There are a few places which re
main unchanged in the lower wards
of the city, but in a few years even
these will be swept away and not
an ancient landmark will be left.
The New Yorker who remembers
the Battery of fifty years ago re
member3 it as the great promenade
Df the lovers of those days, and
there were lovers then and plenty
of them-not dudes who walked
along the street sucking the end of
an attenuated walking stick, but
manly stalwart young fellows who
ouid fight for their gir}s if occa
aion required, and who when they
rent to work in their stores and
shops were not ashamed to put on
i paper cap and an ipron and
sweep off the sidewalk or do any
)ther necessary duty. Work was
0: then con.sidered a disgrace and1
>oys were Lrought up to believe 1
hat the gods help those who help
hemselves, and that a man's proud1
st boast should be that he was
Lble to earn his own living. I re
ret to say that this noble ambition I
o appear independent, is dying out i
.nd the highest aspiration of thet
nodern New York dude is to have
he world believe that somebody<
Ise is making his living for him,
t seems wonderful that any sane
oung man in thi:s somewhat prac
ical age of ours, should aspire to
ut Dude all the Dudes of Dude- 1:
om. Yet on Bro;adway any sunny t
fternoon you can; see Barry WVall, ~
Lie acknowledged King of the c
)udes. Don't figure to yourself a t
ain, pale, consumptive individual t
2at a summer zephyr would leave I
hopeless wreck; nothing could h
e further from the truth. Barry t:
Vall is like Fred Gebhardt, Mrs. ti
aogtry's particular friend, a train- e
i athelete who could put on the c
loves with . Billy Edwards or li
[itchell, and not get badly knock- A
l out.o
The young gentlemen in ie e:
untry who start in for Dudes and h
link that all that is necessary to e
ake a first class article, is to have ri
consumptive chest and a thin pair h
Slegs, had better not come to New w
ork. The New York Dude may o
irt his hair in the middle and his oi
mnts may fit him like an eelskin, 0:
it he can walk his ten miles be- ai
re breakfast, throw himself over di
horizontal bar, arnd box with Sul- P

Llensberry rules, but he won't m

suit more than two or three hours,
and some of his changes are even
more frequent than that; but nc

followers who look up to him with
awe and reverence, feeling the utter
hopelessness of ever arriving at
his stuning perfection. Forty

There is a large graveyard on~
the western bank of Richland

Edgefield County, wbich contains
the grave of Sophia Bonham, the
mother of Governor M. L. Bonham.
Her father, Jacob Smith, and her
mother, who was a Butler, together
with hezt husband, are all buried
within the same enclosure. A cor.

allowed to live.
it is with pleasure that I an
nounce that the season of excurs
ions is drawing to a close. The
strict administration of our Excise
law on Sunday has a teridency to
drive the dissipated and drinking.
portion of New York and Brooklyn
on the Lord's day. All sorts of
excursions are improvised to the
neighboring towns, which profit of
com se by the hegira from the city.
In fact, there are a great many
places about New York which are {
almost entirely supported by this
Sunday trade Forty or fifty ex
cursions leave here every Sunday.
One advertises "The Wharf Rats|
Coteria," another "The Jumpin'
Plugs," another "The Saw Me Leg
Off R:tngers," and from the titles
you can. form a pretty good idea of
the quality of the company.
To see one of these excursion
boats start you might imagine that
some States Prison had suddenly
emptied. Riot and drunkenness
are their general characteristics ;
fights are frequent and murder not'
unusual. There are also muny res
pectable people who go on these
Sunday excursions, but as a gen
eral thing they have cause to regret
it. Of late the excursions have
been worse than usual, on account
of the inefficient police protection,
and the almost positive immunity
from punishment. Bands of or:
ganized roughs have taken posses
sion of the boats, maiming and
wounding innocent people who op
posed them. The shocking murder
of an inoffensive German, a couple
of weeks ago, on one of these excur
sioas has thoroughly aroused the
authorities, and we are in hopes
that, at least, some of these mur
lerous ruffians may be brought to
ustice.
These hands of Thugs generally
nake their head quarters at some
iquor store, and the chances are
en to one that it either belongs to
he Alderman of the Ward, or to
ome intimate friend of his who
onducts it in his interest. If one
f the gang is arrested, the Alder
nan is on hand to go his bail, and
)y some hocus pocus the complaint
s pigeon-holed, and that is the last
hat is heard of it.
One of the very worst of the ~
~ang who participated in the mur
t
ier I spoke of was a young ruffian,
rho aspired to be a tough ; that is C
o say, one who has downed his ~
uan, or in other words, murdt r.d ~
tim. This particular youth was the C
error of his desperate pals, and L
et when indicated for his terrible,
ffence, his mother testified witht
ears in her eyes that he was one of C
he gentlest, sweetest m-annered 0
oys that a loving mother ever
ad. One of the participants in a
de assassination was a villain by Y
1e name of Judge, who as he was
scaping knocked down his female ~
ompanion, and almost stamped the a
fe ont of her with his boot heels,
Lnd yet, with the moral perversity '
I' womanhood;, which no fellow can
rplain, the poor creature with her a
ead bound up, and her face bruis- s
i beyond recognition, was at the 0.
iffian's prison door pleading for P~
is release. Explain the mystery ti
ho can. It may not be desirable s
practicable to close the doors of 01
ar city, and keep all the people in it
1 S3unday; but if these ercursio-is ti
'e permitted they must be con-a
2cted within the pale of the law. Ve
olice protection must be afforded as
em, and if necessary an example fr
uist be made,of these lawless ri- Y
rer, such as we have been called I1
>Onl to make on several occasions th

lead Rabbits,' could well be spared ini

Buit overstepping every other
question in New York at the pres
ent time, is the all absorbing one,
of. how is New York going in the
next election? Ministers, lawyers,
shop girls, and hod carriers, seem to
take an equal interest in this vital
political question. On that ques
tion hangs the Presidency, and the
hopes of' succession to Grover
Clevelard or James G. Blaine.
The memory of man runneth not
back when such wild enthuisiasm
has been seen at such an early stage
of the canvass. We are two months
cf from the election, and the streets
are6 died night after night with
Plumed Knights and Cleveland le

Steam voyages backward and for

rly been performed with such
itonishing rapidity, that the pre.
~nt gene.ration of residents in the
d and new worlds are far less prne

te loss of a passenger steamer at
a. Yet the records of that great,

e North Atlantic Ocean, proclaim
at during the first thirty years of
eamn navigation voyages were
ry far indeed from being as safe

BISHOP HUN'TINGTON ON MO
RALS.
Why He Prefers Grover Cleveland to James G.
Blaine-Points for Voters
Among the prominent men of the
country who spend their summers
I in the delightful old County of
ilampshire is Bishop Huntington
- of Syracuse, N. Y., who resides for
- the summer in an old-fashioned
- farm house somewhat modernized,
in the quaint and historical town of
Hadley. Your reporter had a
very pleasant chat the other day
with this well-known theologian on
the political aspects of the day.
While the Bishop's taste and work
do not lead him into politics, yet
he is a keen observer of what is
going on in the political world, and
his deductions are made after ma
tre reflection and careful investi.
gation. As to his own position the
Bishop said: "I class myself with
the Independents, for I am in the
habit of voting according to the
character of the men placed in
nomination." In reply to a query
as to his opinion of Mr. Blaine he
'said: "Well, I have no desire to
publish my opinions to the world,
nor do I care to hold them back.
I have never been in favor of Blaine,
whom I recognize as a trafficker in
official influence, and I am very
much pained to see so .many of my
.New England friends yielding up
the high standard of morals 80
requisite to the Presidential candi
date in the past. Nothing has been
said in this miserable attempt which
can bring him into the society of
the pure st.ateemen of the past. It
would indeed he deplorable if the
young men of this nation should be
informed by this election that the
people of the United States con
done the bffenses proved against'
James G. Blaine. The moral effect
would be. very depressing should
they be told by his election that
they can lie, defraud, become dem
agogues, bribe givers and takers
and still not forfeit the public con
fidence. it is a humiliating spec
tacle to see so many men like Hoar,
DLawes and others twisting his dis
honored record in spelt a wvay as to
become a deliberate attempt to
make his conduct reputable. To
me the action of those who sneer at
the .attempt to purify the political
atmosphere is contemptible."
.As the Bishop spends most of his~
time in central New York his opin
ion of Cleveland has weight. In
answer to his views of Cleveland he
remarked: "His public life has
been trustworthy, upright and man.
