Lewis & Beecher Company, lOO East Water Street, apadsra-U - New Haven, Conn. 1879 ITS RECORD. ! The year just closed bag not been as event j fa as some reoent years, bat in the record of j any year ranch that is important is chronicled. I Political affairs in Great Britain have at tracted muoh attention. The disonssion of the home and foreign policy of Lord Beacons field's government has been very active and searching. The Liberal party is far more en thusiastic than it was a year ago, and its policy is more oiearly defined. Mr. Gladstone's re markable campaign in Midlothian is the most important political event of the year in Great Britain. In France there was a change in the head of the government during the first month of the year. Marshal MacMahon retired, and was succeeded by M. Grevy. ' TheDufaure ministry resigned shortly afterwards, and was succeeded by one consisting largely of the same persons, led by M. Waddington, who bas just retired in his turn, and given plaoe to his colleague, M. de Freycinei. The Republic continues popular. The death of the Prinoe Imperial weakened the Bonapartists, and though the Republican party may fairly be said to bave been strengthened, the several elements of the party are more hostile to each other than they were. In Germany Prince Bismarck has changed his policy and associates. He has cut loose from the national liberals and has formed an alliance with the conservatives and center party. The system of a protective tariff has been re-established. Negotiations bave been continued through the year with the govern ment of the Pope, with the end in view ef re storing a modut Vivendi between the German Government and the Catholic hierarchy and populations, but thus far without result. The Prussian diet has been dissolved and a new house elected whioh is favorable to Prince Bismarck's present plans. A most interesting and important contest has been going on in Russia between the Nihilists and despotism. Two attempts have been made upon the life of the Czar and assassination, incendiarism and the spreading of seditions literature have been active. The Government has taken energetio action. There have been numerous executions, and the roads to Siberia are thronged with exiles on their way thither. The prisons are al full, and martial law prevails in the large towns. There has been talk of some amelior ation of the present form of government, but nothing in that direotion has yet been done. In other European oountries there have been ministerial crises. In Asia the difficul ties between China and Japan concerning the possession of the JLoochoo Islands have at times threatened to become serious. In Bur mah the accession of a new sovereign bas been followed by the most revolting cruel ties and British interest have not been treated with respect. In Afghanistan there is revolt against British authority. In Africa the Khe dive of Egypt rebelled against European oon trol and deposed the English and French ministers. They have, however, been rein stated. On this side of the Atlantio there have been revolutions on the island of San Domingo, re bellion in Cuba, a rebellion in Mexico, and a revolution in Venezuela. In Canada the pro tective tariff, that was rendered certain by the conservative victory in the general elections, has gone fully into force. The remarkable series of events in whioh the government of the province of Quebeo was at stake has ended in favor of the Canadian government. In our own country political affairs have been unusually lively. Early in' the year the contest over the political clauses of the ap propriation bills in Congress was waged fiercely between the senate and the house. The failure of the two houses to agree ren dered necessary an extra session, and, the control of the senate having1 meantime passed into the hands of , the Democrats, the former contest was renewed, but this time between the President and an agreeing Congress. The issue was carried before tbe people at the au tumnal elections, and an emphatio support was given by the voters to the resistance the Republicans had made to the repeal of the election laws. Other political events are the Yazoo City assassination, the Butler defeat in Massachusetts, the Kelley-Tilden schism in New York, the election of the Rev. Mr. Eal looh as mayor of San Francisco, the southern negro exodus, the Grant boom and the Maine fraud. No very important wars have been carried on in 1879. The British have had trouble in Afghanistan and Zululand. Sinoe April 2d Peru and Bolivia have been fighting Chili, and some fierce naval combats have taken plaoe. In the condition of trade and .industry this country has seen a great change for the better sinoe the beginning of the year. The resump tion of specie payments did much to bring back confidence, and our immense crops and the needs of other nations helped to make us prosperous. Perhaps there was never a time when there was more real prosperity in the country than to-day. In Europe and in other parts of the world the case is very different. There have been at least the usual number of "misfortunes, disasters and accidents." The cholera has raged in Japan. The plague and diphtheria have caused many deaths in Russia. The yellow feyer visited Memphis and stayed all summer. It has done also its usual work in Cuba. There has been famine in the valley of the Nile and in Morocco. . An earthquake in Persia in March killed fjoOO people, and In Sicily in June killed 10. An avalanche in the Austrian Tyrol in March killed 40 people. There was the awful flood of the Theiss at Szegedin in Hungary in April, by whioh 4,000 lives were lost and many more thousands of people left homeless. In May again :the Theiss rose as before. In June the Danube was terribly flooded. Seven iron bridges were swept away at onoe. In October the terrible Muroia floods in Spain occurred. when 3,000 people were drowned by the rising of the river. And again in December 12,000 people were made homeless on the Danube. Muoh damage was done by storms in this oountry. ; Among steamship disasters, the Haytien steamer Michel in March sank in a collision, with 78 lives lost, the Ava in Indian waters in May with 70 lives, the State of Vir ginia in July with 8 lives, the Congora by col. lision off Finiaterre in August with 14 lives. the Pajaro, near Havana, in August with 46 jives, the French floating battery Arrogante off Hyeres with 47 lives, the Champion off our coast with 80 lives, the Borussia with 200 lives. Gloucester has lost 240 fishermen. The dreadful railroad accident in Scotland is still fresh In the minds of onr readers. -" - Among other events of the year thamay be mentioned are the great boom hi stocks in this oountry, and the general rise in prioes, the refunding of onr national debt, the at tack upon slavery in Cuba, the Fall River de falcations, Archbishop PuroeU's failure to re pay those who had deposited money with him, tho massacres' by the TJtes, Talmage's troubles, the marriage of King Alphonao of Spain, the killing of his five-year-old child as a sacrifice by Freeman the Cape Cod Second Adventist, the landing of a new oable at North Eastham, Mass., the walking mania, tbe de velopment of the telephone and its general use, the introduction of the audiphone and the advance toward a good electric light. The list of the dead of 1879 does not oon tain aa many great names as do the lists of some other recent years. The only reigning sovereign who has died during the year was the Ameer of Afghanistan. The Prince Im perial was shot in South Africa. Of the poli ticians and ' statesmen who have died we mention Senor Espartero of Spain, Sir Rowland Hill, the father of cheap postage, Von Bulow, Prince Bismarck's lieu tenant at the foreign office of Germany, Dr. Isaac Butt, the English home rule leader, John Arthur Roebuck, William Lloyd Garri son, Caleb Gushing, John A. Dix, William Allen and Senator Zach Chandler. Among those eminent in our civil war who have died are General Hooker, General Shields, Genera Jefferson C. Davis, General Hood and General "Diok" Taylor. From literature, art and science the following named have been taken : Professor Clifford, one of the most promising of the younger English thinkers, Professor Clerk-Maxwell, R. H. Dana, the American poet, -jElihu Burritt, "the learned black smith," Mr. Delane, for thirty-six years edi tor of the London Times, Henry C. Carey, Miobel Chevalier, the French economist, M. de Villemessant, oonduotor of the Paris Fig aro, William Morris Hunt, the Boston artist, Charles Fechter, the aotor, Buokstone, the famous English comedian, and William Hep worth Dixon. Two Roman cardinals, An tonucci and Guidi, Bishops Odenheimer and Whittingham of the American Protestant Episoopal chnroh, Bishop Ames of the Meth odist church and the Rev. Dr. Budington of Brooklyn are among tbe losses theology has sustained. Famous for their wealth were Baron Lionel de Rothschild, Hon. Asa Packer of Pennsylvania, the two brothers Goclet, who died in New York, and Richard Schell ot the same city. Daniel Drew, who had beer very wealthy, died comparatively poor. Of famous women should be mentioned Betxy Patterson Bonaparte; Frances, countess of Waldegrave ; the Countess de Montijo, moth er of the Empress Eugenie, and Mrs. Charles Dickens.

Now contribute your share to that pavement composed of good resolutions. After a few more failures the king-killers will begin to think there is "a divinity which doth hedge a king." The Government of the United States might in the end find it more profitable to pa; its representatives in foreign lands "living salaries." Diamonds will not be cheap as glass beads immediately. Mr. Maskelyne, of the mineral department of the British ,mnseum, writes to the Times that after a thore, h test of tho so- called "crystallized ft ? ns of carbon" obtained by Mr. James Maclear, of the St. Rollox Chemical Works, who supposed he had dis covered a process of making diamonds, he (Mr. Maskelyne) has no hesitation in declar ing that they are not diamonds at all, but con sist of some compound of silica. The condition of Italy just now is sad The harvest was altogether deficient ; the In dian corn, on which a large part of the popu lation mainly depends for food, was almost a total failure ; the potatoes are diseased and very bad and dear ; the chestnuts, which are the ohief staple of food in the hilly districts, were a poor orop ; and now comes winter, un usually early and unusually severe, preventing all outdoor work. At Faenza there have been bread riots and the military had to be called out. At Ravenna the bakers' shops have been sacked by bands of hungry peasants ; at Ser mide like scenes have occurred, and In tbe provinces the people are clamoring for bread and employment. In Rome the number of beggars is very much on the inorease. For some months past the case of Ell Ice, in the penitentiary of West Virginia for mur dering Uriah Wade in 1862, has excited great attention and sympathy in the Grand Army of the Republic, and at all gatherings of Union soldiers. The story was that Ioe was a Union soldier of good habits, who was being persecu ted for slaying a rebel during the war. At several meetings in Ohio the utmost indigna tion was expressed, and a movement for f oroi bly rescuing him was put on foot. The Cleve land Herald has made an exhaustive examina tion of the matter, and finds that Ice is a man of terribly violent and vindictive passions; that he deliberately murdered Wade when neither was in the service, to gratify an old grudge, and without the smallest provocation ; and that the jury that convicted him was a fair one, and eleven out of the twelve were ex Un ion soldiers and Republicans. Ex-Governor Pierpont declares that Ice suffers justly ; that the murder of Wade was oold-bloodod ; and that the murderer is believed to have killed one of his own ohildren, and is known to have chopped the fingers off from others. j About two years ago Miss Mollis Fancher, of Brooklyn, attraoted public attention by claiming to live without eating and to possess the faculty of "second sight." Dr. William A. Hammond, of New York oity, had no faith in the claims of Miss Fanoher and her friends, and offered her a reward of $1,000 if she would make a successful attempt, under his supervision, to substantiate them. This offer was not accepted, and Miss Fancher has since dropped out of the publioeye. But a Dr. H S. Tanner, of Minneapolis, now comes for ward and claims to be able to live in comfort without food far at least thirty day, and that he has twioe publicly submitted to a test,, eaoh time maintaining life, consciousness, health, and the ability to take physical exor cise, although abstaining from food for the extraordinary period of forty-two days. Dr. Tanner says he does not want to make any money out of the affair, but that he will ooms to New York and live without food for thirty days, will plaoe himself nnder the supervis ion of any man or number of men that may be selected, and will allow the experiment to be conducted publicly or privately. Dr. Ham mond says he will aooept Dr. Tannor. prop osition, and if the latter means what he says we shall probably soon be treated to an inter esting test of the enduranoe of a human being. It will be quite as sensible, if not as exciting, as a walking matoh. BROKEN RESOLUTIONS.

Mr. Rookmore, riding by on his way to his meet ing, called out : "Never mind, Colquitt, I'll bear witness in heaven against you for stealing those peaches."

Tne Old Womau and Her Three Cats One New Year's morning, many years ago, a poor, friendless old woman who dwelt all alone in a miserable hovel on the outskirts of a broken down, dilapidated village, found under her door step three little kittens, so -yonng that they had only just began to peep out of their eyes. Their mother had been killed a few hours before by a fierce bull mas tiff that belonged to a butcher hard by. Hi. name we have quite forgotten, indeed, if we over did know it. We don't think it was Smith. Their piteous cries touched the heart of the old woman, who, having outlived all her early friends and relatives, ached to find something to love. When she f iuui them they were trying to draw nourisbme ,t from the dead body of their mother. IL w., all useless ; for she was cold in death, her lag i and tail sticking out stiff and straight as ram rods. The old Tsaman felt keenly their misery, for she well knew the pangs of hunger. The poor, too, well know the sufferings from poverty. This is an experienoe the rich can never have. So the poor from their sympathy often divide almost their last crust with those more miser able than themselves. But more often they don't divide. Long suffering from poverty, with the kicks and ouffs that the low down sometimes get from those only an inch or two above them, is apt to harden the heart. Thus it is that many of the poor grow wioked and desperate and try to drown their troubles in strong drinks, who, if they had but moderate ' prosperity, would remain decent sort of folk and never, unless indeed it was prescribed by a doctor, drink anything stronger than good wholesome tea and coffee, such as Young Hy son and old Government Java. Anybody would be worse than a fool that did not remain good, who had a comfortable home.nioe warm oioth ing, pretty things and bright cheerful faoes and loving hearts around them. Tbe old woman, as we said, took pity on the wee little suffering things and carried them into her hovel. She provided milk for them and ten derly nursed and brought them up by hand. While small their playfulness and droll antics amused her solitude. Such smart, ounniog little creatutes, she thought had never been seen before. All this soon passed away and they grew up into three great bounoing cats, with the stolid dignity and sage gravity of deportment that belongs to eats when their days of youthf nl innocenoe have fled forever. Now it was that the poor old woman began to suffer for her humanity. What suffloed to support them as little kittens was not sufficient for their sustenanoe as full grown oats. Their appetites became so enormous that it seemed as if they would fairly eat her out of house and home. Her own slender means nearly vanished. Somehow she could have managed to have sustained herself if alone ; but tho ad . ditional mouths to feed was too much. As it was, she divided what she had with them, still giving the larger part to the cats. Yet, all four, the old woman and the three cats, grew lean and weak from being half starved. As for the old woman, the skin on her face became more and more wrinkled, the crows feet under her eyes deepened into gul lies, while the solitary front tooth left on her upper jaw stuck out from her shriveled mouth and lapped over and rested on her lower lip like a tusk. When she did laugh, for none are so poor and miserable but what they dosome times laugh, her mouth did look queer with its circular ridge of bare gum. and that single tooth standing there alone and no longer of any use exoept as a sort of ornament. . Her most sorrowful days now came. For the cats now began to reproach her, saying : "You ought to bave left us to die when we were kittens and knew nothing, and so saved ns from our misery ; or else long ere this have turned ns out of doors to learn bow to pick up our own living as cats generally are uoens tomed to do. Instead of that you took us when we were young and innocent, simply to minister to your silly love for amust-meiit Then you pampered us so we never learned to take care of ourselves. Everybody," oou (inued the cats, " everybody says ' Lif. is a fight.' But we are as inoapable of fighting as so many Quakers. Beside the rats in this neighborhood are unusually large and fero cious and as for getting our living by niakiug war upon such horrid, ugly customers, it can not for a moment be thought of, they .;ro mo strong and full of fight. Again, whuffv-r meat we bave had, although cold, has a! way. been cooked. We are certain that a diet of rats eaten raw would not agree with onr Rtotu aohs. We think it your duty to oatch th rats yourself in a trap, kill, oleau, split sham open and 'broil them for us, as people do spring chickens. It Is what you owe tons for having given you so long the ber. .dt of our oompany." This cruel and inconsiderate speech hurt the old woman sorely, for it was largely un true ; and just here we can but express oi r ' W19U IU., HltS lOUtUg Ul " " confined to cats. Nothing" stings like ingratitude. The old woman was so badly hurt that she picked up a milk stool she had used in the more pros perous days when she owned a cow, slunk Hway into tbe oorner ot her hoveLand, sitting down there, burst Into a flood of tears, orfing like a child. Indeed, she was in her ssennd childhood, weak and demented, and so fr from being able to provide for hs oats, they should have provided ' for - her, that is, if they had the ability to do so, which was ques tionable. " t - - ' We said nothing stings like ingratitude. This is because when any one volunteers to do good and does good to another they feel so haDpy over it that they begin to love that other. It is thus more blessed to give than to receive. That is one great reason parents so love their ohildren, beoause they are working and doing for them all the time. To have one turn upon you that you love hurts ten times as much as a blow from an enemy. . It was a hard lesson to the old woman, .that , ungrateful speech. Alas I it came too late to be of benefit to her, for she was verging on eighty years, a period of life at whioh the , time left to derive much good from a lesson is ' not surprising. Still, our telling it may benefit somebody, as a caution to be careful, what sort of blooded oreatures they take to their hearts and homes, lest finally, like the eats to the old woman, thfiv mnv turn unon them and stine them bv their ingratitude. Meow H. H. Tne Snow Blockade in Paris. Paris Dispatch to the London Telegraph ! In the streets and on the Boulevards the circulation continues to be very difficult ' in- -deed, and stoppages are of frequent occur renoe, particularly in the more' crowded thoroughfares. The municipal authorities aie adopting efficient means to remove the snow, but the work progresses slowly, and if a thaw were suddenly to set in, the oonsequanoes . would be deplorable. Sledges are being grad ually extemporized, but the general traffic Is still conducted on wheels, and the unluoky cab-hacks are having anything but A , pleasant time of it. The omnibuses are ' better . off, those with three horses being supplemented with two more, while those usually drawn by two are provided with an - extra steed. ' The tramway services between the Louvre and -Passy, and between the Rue Tronohet and La Muette, have reoommenoed, but the - others are still interrupted. The Seine, presents a vary curious appearance. It is frozen over very thickly indeed in some parts, but the surface is irregular and insecure ; and almost entirely oovered with snow. Perhaps the most picturesque sight of all is that present ed by the Tuileries Garrule, the general effect is gloomy in the extreme thiok, sombre fog, without one gloom of light or sunshine to re deem the melancholy picture. Of course, ac cidents are to be expected at this season,, and a few are reoordbd every day. Tha sk'tte r are enjoying themselves to their hearts' ctu tent at the Bois da Boulogne, the well-luio-xit lakes of whioh are well adapted to this healthy sport, while a troop of sledges make a daily pilgrimage to the drive around their margin. v
