What arc Accomplished Facts.
Wc copy the following eloquent extract
from a speech recently delivered by the Hon.
George II. Pendleton, at St. Paul,; Minnesota:
They tell us we Democrats will cling to
dead issues the integrity of Republican
government, the preservation of liberty, the
lnniutainatice of our Constitution and gov
ernment, tho happiness of mankind! Are
those dead issues I Our love for thorn may
be dead, our fidelity may lc dead, our worthi
neae for them and uur enjoyment may be dead,
but the irsucs will live till they are settled in
their full fruition, and tho principles which
undurlio them are as durable as the Eternal
Throne. They toll iw like the Uourbons, wo
will forget nothiug and learn nothing; we
will not submit to accomplished facts, it is
a mistake. It wen- wicked folly to reiiat the
inevitable. We would bow reverently in its
pru&ence. Rut who blujll open the book of
fate and say of any course of events or of
any condition of thing?, it is fixed forever?
Who shall, with prophetic power, read the
secret of tho Almighty, and repeat in another
connection the words which, only onco ut-
toreu tiiroueiiout all the aire, reverberate
alon: the counc of eitrhtecu centuries: "It
ujlninhctf" The human mind has no power
to uuaern the unmanageable. 'I he decrees of
destiny are hidden from its view, that its
aspirations may not le checked, its efforts
may noi be polnied. When Wm. Pitt came
uacK U) the ministry, he formed with incred
ible energy and exertion, the Constitutional
Alliance. It required the labor of two year.
Napoleon broke up his camp at I'oulogne,
marched hie heroic legions to the Daiiulm.
and in one hundred days captured an army
at Ulm, and shattered the coalition on the
bloody Held of Auateriitz. The great states
man was bowed to the earth his hope was
gone his courage broken his efforts at an
end. Broken hearted, he exclaimed, Roll
up the map of Europe for half a century,"
and died, believing that Xapolean attained
to universal dominion. Austria was des
poiled of her fairest possession. Jena fol
lowed, andPruiwia was humbled to the dost;
Friedland followed, and the monarch of the
North bowed his haughty head before the
imperial eaglet. Napoleon was mighty. Ilia
fiat vacated the throne of Naples, lie pro
nounced the sentence. "The House of ISra
ganza has ceased to reign," and that family
went fugitives from Portugal to Rrazil.

How tiii: Tkxituic or OrncK Bill Works.
Another grave defect in the tenure of office
bill is disclosed by its practical operation.
There is no United States District Attorney
in the Nashville District of Tennersee, and as
the vacancy occurred during the recess awl
the Senate adjourned without lilling it, the
President cannot legally appoint one. The
law provides that the duties of an office thus
vncant shall be performed by the erson who
by law irfonns them in a case of vacancy.
But there is no such peron in the cose of a
Distriut Attorney. The consequence is. that
the office is not filled, tho laws are violated,
and no prosecutions can bo instituted, and
General Grant state that Government officers
are vexed by writs in thu State Courts, which
cannot bo taken up to tho United States
Courts without the aid of n District Attor
ney, j no i'reMtienr, cannot inane an appoint
ment without violating the Tenure ol Ofllcc
law; if he does not make one, ho neglects to
sccuro tho enforcement of other laws in the
vacant District. This comes of abandoning
ostabltshod principles and going into special
legislation, to hedge in an obnoxious Presi
dent. Springid'! ll'-puUi'v n .
Dough's Apostropho to Water.
Look at that, ye thirsty ones of enrthl
Behold it ! See its purity ! How it glitters-,
as if a mass of liquid gem! It is a beverage
that was brewed by the hand of tho Almighty
himself! Not in simmering still or imoklng
lire?, choked with jKiisonous gases, and fcur
rounded by the stench of sickening odors and
rank corruption, doth our Father in Heaven
prepare the precious essence of life, the pure
cold water; but in the green glade and grassy
dell, where the red deer wanders, and the
child loves to play; there God brew It; ami
down, down in the deepest valleys, where tho
fountains murmur and the rills s:ng ; and high
upon tho tall mountaiu-toM, where the storm-.
clouds brood and the thunders enwh; iA
away far out on the wide sea, where the hur
ricanes howl music and the big waves roar
the chorus, awceping tho march of God, there
ho brows it, that bovonigo of life, honltJi-gly-ing
vrator! And every whoro it U a thing Of
beauty; glimmering in the dew drop, singing
in the summer rain, shining in the ice gCtn,
till tho trees all seem turned into living Jew
els ; spreading a golden veil over the rotting
eun, or a white gauze around the midnight
moon; sporting in the cataract, sleeping in
the glaciers, dancing in the hail shower; fold
ing its bright curtain softly about the windy
world, and weaving tho many-colored iris
that seraph's rone of the sky, whose warp is
the rain-drops of earth, whose woof is tho
sunbeam of heaven, all checkered over with
the celestial flowers by the myMie band of
refraction still always it is beautiful, that
blessed life-water ! No poison bubbles on the
brink, iu foam brings no widnes or murder;
no blood stains its limpid glas; broken
hearted wive, pale widows, and starving or
phans, shed no tears in its depths ; no drunk
ard's shrieking gbogt from the grave curse it
in words of eternal despair ; beautiful, pure,
blepoed, and gloriou?, give we forerer the
sparkling, pure cold water.
Caitaix Ericsson's "Majc-Moxitok."
Captain Krioron has invented a boat whieJi
he calls the " man-monitor,'1 and which can
be propelled by either steam or man pewor.
He ha- a contract to build several of these
boats for the Swedish Government, and one
of the number has been so far completed that
several successful experiment hare been made
with the machinery. Each boat is one hun
dred and three feet long, twenty feet wide.
j ven feet draft, and one hundred and fortv
tons burthen. The turret is nineteen feet

fol)r ,iavBi 8nPnlv of coal, and as Swodon
has to deienu upon other nations lor cos), it
is desirable for her to obtain a formidable
gunboat that can navigate the shallow bay
of the shores of Sweden without using stesm
power. In war, the boats are propelled to
the scene oi engagement by man liowcr. but
during cn action steam will be used, leaving
the men at liberty to work the gune. The
machinery is worked by twenty-four men,
sitting on opposite seats, who work a brake
similar tr thst of a hand engine. It Is esti
mated that a gunboat can make fifty or fixtv
miles a day in this manner. Experiments en
the first of the man-monitors at the Deiamo
ter iron works, hare given ranch Matisfaetfon.
The total cost will bo about $30,000 for each
boat.

PiTrmo ok "Sir i.." The Davton Jur
: hh tells the following "vara"
A few months ago a gentleman moved to
this city, and iHirchascd nice property, and,
among other thing, to contribute to his con
venience and comfort, procured a fine horse
and a very genteel carriage. "A likely col
ored boy' was employed at a fair Ktlary to
take charg of the establishment, and dis
charge the numerous duties which would
aristi around a well regulated homestead. Pur
I n time things went on smoothly with Choirs,
but lately uo peemod out of ppiriti1, and sol-
dom smiled. His employer obsarvod this
despondent demeanor of Chores, and he do
termined to get at the Irattom of it.
J'erliajis
he was in love'. Hut no matter, 'taking
Chores aside one day, when he look oil more
gloomy than usual, he inquired considerately
what "ailed him. "Welt, you see, "Mas'r,"
began Chores, in a ort of tragic stylo, "you's
fot but one hose, while all de gentlemen bout
ea' has two ; an' all do tors da calls mc a
one-boMi nigga ; an' as I can't stan' dat, I
sped s I'll hare for to resign ! I like you fits
rate, iuar'r, an' I'd like to stay if you had
two boasce, but you see how it is de boys,
dey can't quit helierin', 'dcre go dat ouo-hoss
nigger!"1 Not wishing to lose the sunices
ofso valuable an assistant, a second lioio
was pun-bated, and Chores became a two
hoss nigger.

wrote a consent. She came to the rendez
