The public sehool at Port Stevens
closed last week. The examination day
convinced all of the parents and friends
that the children under the instruction of
Mrs. Church had made unusual progress.
An examination was given at the close of
Ihe school which would have done credit
io a much larger place. The hall was
instefuily decorated by the soldiers at the
Fort. The recitations and singinj: bthe
children awakened both admiration and
A Washington letter says the annual
repairs- at the capital have been completed
with the exception of putting down the
new carpets in the hall of the House of
Representatives. The hall has not been
enlarged, but the desks for members have
been changed for others much smaller,
and henceforth there will be less room for
graceful gestures on the part of the Hon.
Mr. Buncombe. He will cither he com
pelled to step into the aisle while relieving
his pent up eloquence, or allow his ges
tures, like maivy applauses, to be imagined
by his enraptured and spell-bound au
dience. It has been urged that Farmers'
Granges are responsible for the recent
f'nancial troubles East. If this is so, then
.may the farming community see their
power.. Their jletermination to right
some of the outrages surrounding them
from usurping monopolists in the Great
"West, was certainly only a matter of self
protection, and if their influence spreads
to such extent as to cause such a flutter
among bogus concerns as in this case
God speed them in it, we say. The opera
tion shows the cMss of securities guaran
teeing them absolution from the evils com
plained of to have hern very flimsy ex
cuses ior legitimate business transactions.
A "Washington dispatch says that
only ahout fifty thousand volumes of pub
lic documents belonging to Senators re
main at the Capitol. On the House side
immense piles of public documents be
longing to members are stowed away, and
j-ome disposition will have to be made of
them. Afore than one-half of the mem
bers of the last House were not re-elected,
and those show no disposition to bear the
expense of postag in forwarding the doc
uments to their constituents A re-elected
member who. was sending off documents
s-aid he had alread' expended one hundred
dollars in postage, which was rather a bit
ter pill. "We hope they may all get a
good dose of the bitter pills until they re

compels people to pay postage on news

there are neither postal routes nor post
offiees as in Clatsop. .
The love of God and the world are
two different things. If the love of
this world dwell in thee, the love of
God forsakes thee; renounce that and
receive this; it is fit the nobler love
should have the best place and ac
ceptance. There are but three things that
make the integrity of Christian faith:
believing the words of God, confi-
deifce in His goodness, and keeping
His commandments. Jeremy Tay
lor. We ought to have been the salt of
the earth, but there has been little
savor of Christ about us. We ought
to have been the light of the world,
but we have most of us been little
glimmering sparks that could scarce
ly be seen. We ought to have been
a peculiar people, but the difference
between us and the world has been
faint and small. We ought to have
looked on this world as an inn, and
we have settled down in it as if it
were our home, it ought to have
been counted our school of training
for eternity, and we have been at
ease in it as if it were our continuing
city, or trifled away time in it, as if
we were meant to play and not to
learn. We ought to have been care
ful for nothing, we have been care
ful and troubled about many things,
we have allowed the affairs of this
life to eat out the heart of our spirit
uality, and have been cumbered
with much serving. Pyle.
Gentleness is love in society. It is
love holding intercourse with those
around it. It is that cordiality of
aspect, and that soul of speech which
assure us that kind and earnest hearts
may still be met with here below.
It is that quiet influence which, like
the scented flame of an alabaster
lamp, fills many a home with light,
and warmth, and fragrance alto
gether. It is the carpet soft and
deep, which, whilst it diffuses a look
of ample comfort, deadens many a
creaking sound. It wards off at once
the summer's slow and winter's
wind. It is the pillow on which
sickness lays its head and forgets half
its misery, and to which death comes
in a. balmier dream. It is consider
ateness. It is tenderness of feeling.
It is warmth of affection. It is
promptitude of sjTmpathy. It is love
in all its depths, and all its delicacy.
It is everything included in that
matchless grace, the gentleness of
The majority of Frenchmen, if not
actually disciples of Voltaire, are at
least opposed to the clergy. No bish
op in France has held power since
the Revolution. Even the conserva
tive peasantry do not like the priestly
meddling in politics. The immense
free-thinking class omit no opportu
nity to assert anti-clerical feeling.
"No priest at birth, no priest at mar
riage, no priest at death,"is their
war-cry. Funerals especially are
made an occasion of showing con
tempt for religion as it exists under
priestly administration. The radi
cal citv of Lyons has an association
whose object is to make funerals an
occasion 'of anti-clerical demonstra
tion. Their energy in the matter has
roused conservative rage, and the
Prefect has made an order that all
such funerals shall take place at six
