TWELVE PACES FOR PRESIDENT, BEJtJAlUNJARRlSOAI. FOR VICE PRESIDENT, WHITELAW REID. One of the cheapest and easiest ways to acquire fame is to change your poli tics a few weeks before a Presidential election, and write a letter giving your views on the subjects before the country. The fame obtained in this way is, to be sure, somewhat ephemeral, but there is lots of it while it lasts. You are certain to have honorable prefixed to your name, and to be described as a person of high standing, and of wide influence, and the prediction will be made that a large numg her of other people, In consequence of your great influence, will follow your exampl e. This prediction will not be f ul" filled, but it is no less flattering to one’s vanity on that account. The disputation that is going on so fiercely as to what manner of man Colum bus was seems hardly worth while. The observance of the 21st of October was conceived as a commemoration of the discovery of America and the wonderful progress of 400 years. That of course brings the career of Columbus as a navi gator and discoverer conspicuously be fore the people, and challenges a dis cussion of it. We believe that it is gen erally admitted that he was an intrepid sailor and that his perseverance in the face of great obstacles enabled him to reach an island adjacent to the American continent in 1492—in short that he is en titled to the glory that he has been get ting for some centuries past, for it is really because he was a bold and adven turous navigator, and not because he was supposed 10 possess superior moral qualities that he has been glorified. The fierce discussion as to whether lie was a saint or a sinner, whether he was a Mediterranean pirate or a pious skipper, whether he was responsible for the existence of slavery in this country has very little bearing on the commemoration of the discovery of America. Columbus’s fame if all these questions are settled against him will not be disturbed, for it is iden tified with none of them. It is a common remark that this is the dullest Presidential campaign in a quar ter of a century at least. What everybody says must be true, is a trite .saying, and almost everybody is saying this. But dullness and lack of interest are not nec essarily synonymous. Our Presidential campaigns have usually been accompanied by a great deal that appealed to the eye and not a little that appealed to the stom ach. Torchlight processions and parades of various kinds, barbecues in the West and South and clambakes in the East have been prominent features of them. There has been undoubtedly in this cam paign much less of these things, and 'their absence may account for the pre vailing impression of dullness. Admit ting the dullness in this sense; is there a lack of interest? It is impossible to an swer that question conclusively until the vote is thrown. A large falling off of the vote would be indicative of lack of inter est, but until election day demonstration of this kind cannot be had. While a lack of interest in a President campaign would be something to be deprecated, it admits of much doubt whether mere lack of noisy or spectacular manifestation of interest is a bad sign. It is a question ‘whether a hurrah campaign is con ducive to that thoughtful consider ation which every intelligent ami patriotic citizen should give to the questions at issue, and which lie should make the foundation of his vote. To our mind the permanent disappear ance of a considerable amount of the spectucular element in our Presidential campaigns would do no harm. Enough of it to eulist the attention of such vot ers as cannot be reached in any other way may be a good thing, but so much of it as to distract the attention of the voters must be harmful. A TAM MANY POET How the Hon. Amos Cummings Used to Stir Up the Hoys for Greeley. In this busy age it frequently happens that a man in one short life plays so many parts that it is sometimes forgot ten that he sorved in the army, or was governor. Carl Schurz is a good exam, pie of the one, and (Jen. Butler of the other. No one now-a-days seems to re member that ex-Senator Schurz was a major-general, and Massachusetts peo ple have pretty well allowed themselves to forget that Gen. Butler was once their governor. The Hon. Amos J. Cummings, of New York, has had so busy and eventful a ca reer, in and out of Congress, that his fel low citizens may well be excused if they forget that he was once a poet, or that a pamphlet edition of his poems was pub lished by the New York Sun as long ago as 1872, and yet so it was. The volume was entitled “The Sun’s Greeley Campaign Songster, by Amos J Cummings,” and we regret to say that as a poet Mr. Cummings was not entirely original; that here and there his poems showed only too plainly the source from which he was then drawing inspiration. For example, this verse was not built fvAm an A niflnnan rrwtrlAl " Hurrah! we’ve won it gallantly! Carl Schurz lias pierced their left; For Grant has cried for quarter, of ah his guards bereft. The carpet knights are sorely pressed, and rid ing frqin the rear; Full well they know their borrowed plumes they can no longer wear. The mailed banditti of tbe South before our troops went down, And troops of presidential kin are fleeing through the town. Colfax lies low with Kobeson, Ben Butler under neath, The trusty blade of Horace in their hearts has found a sheath; A nd like an angry grizzly, Fish licks his wound ed paw, Whilst victory is perching on the Hat of Chap paqua! Mr. Cummings should have disguised his author a little more. “After Macau lay, a long way after him,” the average reader of that poem must have ob served. And yet Mr. Cummings could be origi nal when he tried, and thoroughly Span ish, capable of writing down to any one of the people who wanted to read his poems. For example there is (page 19) this gem: Now despite all the sneers, And the irowns and the tears Of the fearful old blowers who blew so, Horace G. will go up And turn out the bull-pup. With his boss, the modern Crusoe. Chobus.—O, poor, brainless receiver! You had better accept a retriever; For in March, seventy-three, You’ll be up a tall tree, Inquiring the way to Salt Kee-ver. There was just a suggestion of “to the victor belong the spoils” about this (page 49) but then the Democrats who were shouting “Hurrah for Horace Greeley d-m him” needed something of the sort to cheer them on to the polls: Come, rally round old Horace, boys, He never can be beat; He’ll weed the office-holder out And sift them just like wheat. He works all day upon the farm, He puts his produce in the barn; A farmer wise and great is he To rule this land of liberty. And this will go far to show that while Mr. Cummings was then a poet, he was no prophet: Then raise our Farmer's banner high, And catch the favoring gale; Inspired with courage, zeal, and hope, There’s no such thing as fail, For Victory waits upon our flag * And cheers us on our way. To sing a Greeley song by night, And beat his foes by day These few extracts must be taken as specimens of what Mr. Cummings can do in the way of verse making. The time may come when that little book will be in demand. Mr. Cummings may be the Democratic candidate for Presi dent, and then it would work in well when the “Life and Writings of Hon. i t *-* _?_m _i J ^__n. j XXin\jo w • vuiumiugo ii i/uiu ww | for. There may sometime be a second edi tion (it is to be fondly hoped improved) of Rufus Wilmot Griswold, and then the poems of Mr. Cummings would work in as filling, if nothing more. If nothing else comes of them, should Mr. Cum mings grow rich as well as great, copies of his Grealey campaign book would command almost any price the holder might choose to ask. It will, all things considered, be well for those who own copies of that now somewhat rare book to hold on to them, for until they com mand a premium in the market, they will serve to recall an almost forgotten, but still in the main thoroughly American poet.

Only the finest, purest wools enter into its construction, and the fabric, which is en tirely unlike any other, is finished as well as skill in v v wx ivuiuuomjj otvw Aside from the sani tary properties of this “health underwear” the fact that it is pure wool and absolutely free from all coloring matter, is faultless in shape and wears well is sufficient reason for its wonderful growth in popular favor and the increased liking for it Our store-has the sole selling agency for Dr. Jaeger’s goods in Port land and vicinity, and complete lines of all weights and styles are carried in both depart ments—Men’s and Wo men’s.
