paper cap and an apron and
weep off the sidewalk or do any
ther necessarv duty. Work was
ot then considered a disgrace and
oys were brought up to believe
at the gods help those who help

There is a large graveyard on
the western bank of Richiand
Creek, near Mount Willing, in
Edgefield County, which 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 hers husband, are all buried
within the same enclosure. A cor
respondent of the Edgefield Chron

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
)t law on Sunday has a teddency 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
course by the hegira from the city.
In fact, there are a great many
places about New York which are
E 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'
t Plugs," another --The Saw Me Leg
t Off R:nngers," and from the titles
t you can- form a pretty good idea of
r 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 arq 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
sions has thoroughly aroused the
authorities, and we are in hopes
that, at least, some of these mur
derous ruffians may be brought to
These bands of Thugs generally
make their head quarters at some
liquor stare, and the chances are
ten to one that it either belongs to
the Alderman of the Ward, or to
some intimate friend of his who
conducts it in his interest. If one
of the gang is arrested, the Alder
man is on hand to go his bail, and
by some hocus pocus the complaint
is pigeon-holed, and that is the last
that is heard of it.
One of the very worst of the '
gang who participated in the mur
der I spoke of was a young ruffian,
who aspired to be a tough ; that is .
to say, one who has downed his 1
man, or in other words, murdi r d '
him. This particular youth was the d
terror of his desperate pals, and
yet when indicated for his terrible
offence, his mother testided witht
tears in her eyes that he was one of 0
the gentlest, sweetest mannered 0
boys that a loving mother ever
had. One of the participants in a
the assassination was a villain by Y
the name of Judge, who as he was
escaping knocked down his female ~
companion, and almost stamped the a]
life out of her with his boot lieels,
And yet, with the moral perversity
of womanhood;, which no fellow can
explain, the poor creature with her ai
head bound up, and her face bruis- Se
ed beyond recognition, was at the ol
ruffian's prison door pleading for P'
his release. Explain the mystery t
who can. It may not be desirable se
or practicable to close the doors of ee
our city, and keep all the people in th
on S3unday; but if these excursions th
are permitted they must be con- st
ducted within the pale of the law. VE
Police protection must be afforded as
them, and if necessary An example fr4
must be made,of these lawless ri

upon to make on several occasions th

President met the anxious eyes of
the gazers, who, in the phrase of
French mariners, "interrogated the

of her having run into an iceberg or

ship ; but against her name in the

of her existence were ever found,

lost fourteen vessels during its first
twenly-one years cf existence; and
the Compagnie Traisatlanti9ue lost
two, the Darien and the V ille du

during the first twenty-two years.
"It has been computed." adds, how
ever, The National Gazette, of Ne .v
York, "that upward of sixteen thot
sand voyages were. made across the
Atlantic between 1840 and 1874 by
these steamship lines.". Among
the disasters to which we have re
ferred none was more calamitous
than those which overtook the Al
lan Liner, Hungarian, wrecked off
the coast of Nova Scotia in the
night of February 19 and 20, 1860,
with more than two hundred souls
on board, and the White Star
steamer Atlantic which struck a
rock off the same iron-bound coast
on April 18, 1872, carrying at the
time more than a thousand soils,
of whom 442, including Captain
Williams, were saved, and 565 were
lost. Many of her hepless human
freight who had\ climbed into the
rigging perished from cold and
suffering, and the Captain upon
whom the chief blame was laid, un.
derwent a sentence of suspension
for two years. We have said
enough to show that while steam
naxigation was still young the At
lantic was far f.om being that easi
ly-crossed "ferry" which Charles
Dickens was invited to consider it

United States in 1841.
BISHOP HUNTINGTON ON MO
- . -RAI .
Why He Prefers Grover Cleveland to James G.
Blaine-Points for Voters.
Among the prominent men of the
country who spend their summers
in the delightful old County of
Hampshire is Bishop Huntington
Af Syracuse, N. Y., who resides for
the summer in -an old-fashioned
farm house somewhat modernized,
n the quaint and historical town of
Eladley. Your reporter had a
very pleasant chat the other day
with this well-known theologian on
he political aspects of the day
While the Bishop's taste and work
to not lead him into polities, yet
ie is a keen observer of what is
roing on in the political world, and
is deductions are made after mas
nre reflection and careful investi
ration. As to hisown position the
3ishop said': "I class myself with
he Independents, for I am in the
Labit of voting according to the
haracter of the men placed in
omination." In reply to a query
a to his opinion of Mr. Blaine he

ublish my opinions to the world,
or do I care to hold them back.

ould indeed be deplorable if the
nng men of this nation should be
formed by this election that thseA

Duld be- very depressing should

the action of those who sneer at 01
