Beneath the burden of our joy
'remble, Oh I wives, from East to West,
Fashion with words your tongues of fire
To tell the Nation's high behest.
Outstrip the winds and leave behind
The murmur of the rustless waves,
No tarry with your glorious news
Amid the ocean's coral waves.
Ring out, ring out your sweetest chimes,
Ye bells that call to prayer and prasY,
Let every heart with gladnes thrill,
And songs of joyful triumph raise.
shake off the dust, oh rising race;
Crowned an a brother and a man,
Juntive to-day asserts her claim,
And from thy brow fades out the ban.
With freedom's chrism upon thy head.
Her precious enemgn hi thy hand,
Go place thy once despised name
Amid the noblest of the laud.
Oh, ransomed race, givo (ind the praise,
Who led thee through a crimson sea,
And 'mid the storm of tire and blood
Turned out the war lond's light to thee.
Jaclsow, Miss., 1871.

Republeau, ihat the National Re
publican party ia strnger to-day in
every State of the Union than it
was in 1868, when it chose Gen.
Grant to be its standard-bearer
and the reasons for this increased
strength and energy and vitality
are to be found in the vigor and
ability and patriotism with which
his administration has been con
ductoed. It is solely andl entirlefr
owing to the broad and cotnpre
hlnusive policy to which he has
adhered that this result is due. The
Republican party has, under his
leadership, marched to triumph
grcater than it was dreamed of win
ning. He has not given us a hot
antl angry personal government,
but a government based on what
he believed to be the wishes of the
people and the pressing clmnands
and necessities of the country.
When he took the oath of office,
two years ago, the public service
was corrupted and debauched.
Seventy or eighty millions of dollars
were annually stolen by dishonest
officials. To-lay it is purer thani
it has been at any period of our
A mountain of debt threatened to
crush the nation; the faithful finan
cial agents of the President have
mastered that debt, and tmade its
reduction so rapid, that even now
we begin to count the years which
shall witness the payment of the
last dollar. The never-ending In
dian wars threatened us and an
Indian policy was found, the en
forcement of which has saved mil
lions of money during the last two
years, The Alabama question was
a crimson 'cloud on the foreign hor"
ifon, full of all manner of possibili
ties, but it has been turned into the
sunshine of a lasting and an honor
able peace.
And for the reason that all this
and much more has been done, the I
Republican party is stronger to-day,
than it was when it held its last
national convehtion, and will be still
stronger in 1872, when it will again
meet in council. There are factions i
and dissatisfied cliques within its,
party lines, who make a terrible
uproar, and predict disaster and 1
defeat; but they are like the howlers
in the wood, who make a tremendous
noise, and, when the bush is beaten,
instead of a great multitude, prove
to be only an in:irnificiant half
We have been asked to give the
law, as it stands, relating to news
papers and subscribers: f
1. Subscribers who do not give
express notice to the contrary are
considered wishing to continue their .
subscription. 1:
2 If subscribers order the dis
continuance of their periodicals, the
publishers may continue to send
them until all arrearages are paid.
3. If subscribers neglect or refuse
to take their periodicals fronhbe
office to which they are directed, I
they are held resposuible till they Ii
have settled theio bill, and ordered b
them discontinued. L
4. If subseribers move to other
places without informing the pub
lishers, and the papers are sent to
the former direction, they are held
5. The courts have decided that
refusing to take periodicals from C
the office, or removing and leassng a
them unealled for, is primesfacia tl
evidence of intentional fraud.
6. Any person who receives a
new aeer and makes use of it,
w he has ordered it or not, is ti
held in law to be e saubcriber.

--Au old Scotch lady was told
that her miniihter used notes. She
disbelieved it. Said one, "Go into
the gallery and see." She did so,
and saw the written sermon. After

said, "But I will not enlarge." The
old lady cried out from her lofty

A merchant, not over conversant a
