JABEZ BBOOKS, ot the State Univer- sity, preached a sermon last eve ning at the Jackson Street Methodist Church, on the all absorbing topic of hell. The Kev. Jabez is very positive in his belief that there is such an institution as hell, but be yond this very emphatic declaration of opinion there was nothing notable in the dis course. The "hell" topic is becoming rather threadbare by the sensational efforts of the clergy, and it might be as well to give us a few glimpses of heaven, if for nothing else than for variety. We trust it is not owing to the degree of familiarity with the respec tive localities that we hear so much of the pit of woe, and so little of tho realms of bliss. QUACKENBOS es. JiCItT. It is apparent Mr. George P. Quackenbos imagines that State Superintendent Burt stands alone in his opposition to the text book bill in Minnesota. Having, to his own satisfaction at least, demolished Mr. Burt, he rests from his labors with great compla cency. It happens that Mr. Burt is one of many, and that the opposition to the meas ure is general and wide-spread among the educational men of the State. Of course it is natural that Mr. Quackenbos, being connected with the house which now has the fifteen year mono poly, should favor the present bill. Just as it is natural for publishers not having the monopoly to oppose it. The controversy of books publishers is not, however, a point of great interest to the people. What they are interested in is determining whether an ex pensive and dangerous system has not been inaugurated. Attacks on Mr. Burt, or con troversies between individuals, do not reach the case in point. Mr. Burt has given mor tal offence to Appleton & Co the publishers of the state text book series, because, in the discharge of his duties as a public officer, he has not failed to point out the great mistakes of the legislation last winter. It comes with a very ill-grace for Quackenbos to attack a State official, be cause, in the discharge of his public duties, said official has conscientiously opposed and exposed his (Quackenbos') grab. One of the most peculiar portions of the Quackenbos attack is the list of testimonials which are given to demonstrate that Mr. Q.'s Language Lessons are the right thing to have in schools. Mr. Stubbs of Clarence, Iowa, and Mr. Nightingale of Lake View, 111., and Mr. Snow of Alfred, Maine, certify that Quackenbos has achieved greatness in his "Language Lessons." The inquisitive public may ask, who is Stubbs, and who is Nightingale, and who is Snow that they should be held up as models of judgment in educational affairs? la it possible that Clar ence, Iowa, and Lake View, HI., and Alfred, Me., have secured the great educational minds of the nineteenth century whose dictum shall be as the law of the land? If there had been any doubt before relative to Quackenbos' ability, the certificate of these distinguished and enlightened educators from Clarence, Iowa, Lake View, 111., and Alfred, Me., would settle the question. No wonder that he assailed Mr. Burt so bitterly. With such prominent educators at his back he becomes irresistible. Hail to Quack! .itM.Jlrf'^ ,'j hjtrhBhilwrf, & REFORM THE TARIFF AND REVENUE FRAUD. There is and has been more rascality in the revenue, if possible, than any other de partment of government. No law, no legis lation will be complete, unless it reaches down to the bottom, and not only reforms the tariff, reducing and equalizing duties, but simplifies and remodels the custom house business from root to branch, from corner-stone to the cupola. The custom houses of the United States, with few or no exceptions, are hot beds of corruption. With their numberless political sinecures, with their old political barnacle hangers-on, with Kepublican understrappers and pot-house politicians, with their interminable circum locution of offices and red-tape, and expense, and stealings, they are a digrace to a civil ized country. The whole system is corrupt, expensive and doubly complicated. The buildings themselves have been political jobs to swindle the government, and to rob the tax-paying people, and they are used as headquarters for partisan office-holders, and as a machine to plunder the people. This is true everywhere in the United States, and notably in New York, where the appointments and the system are an ever lasting bone of political contention, blocking the wheels of government and delaying legis lation for their settlement. The present Congress should remodel and simplify and purify the whole business, and relieve it of the political incubus, now resting upon the collection of the national revenue. The next work is the reform of the tariff. Every cent for protection should be abol ished. It adds nothing to the revenue, but goes into the pocket of the manufacturer. We want to get as near to free trade as possible. If we wish to sell we must buy. The country needs an enlarged market. We produce more wheat, tobacco, cotton, bread stuffs, beef and pork than we need. Open the markets of the world. If we export free we must import free. It is all barter. Take off the tax on foreign goods, so that we may buy in the markets of the world, exchanging our products. It is not only the farmers and producers, who need markets, but the manufacturers also. No country on the globe can equal the United States in the quality and cheapness of cotton cloths, calicoes, boots and shoes, hardware, sewing machines, agricultural implements and so on. The manufacturers make more than they can sell in the United States. They need other markets, but unless we buy there, we cannot sell. Here is the work for the Tariff Committee in Congress. Take off eveiy dime of duty, except strictly for rev enue, and very little of thatnone to sup port Custom House barnacles. If we export, we must import, if we sell we must buy. Soil for the highest and buy for the cheapest price. Throw open the markets of the world ITBEE TO ALL, and there will soon be an era of prosperity unexampled in all our history. AN ASYLUM FOR IMBECILES. A city physician writes a letter in favor of an asylum for imbeciles, and the incurably insane, on the European plan. This sys tem combines employment with guardian ship custody and care. For this purpose it is suggested, that a section of land be pur and a settlement of this unfortunate class be made on it in family groups occupy ing cottages and under the supervision of keepersthat employment be furnished winter and summer and so on. We sugges ted, a few days ago, in an article on this subject, the establishment of an asylum for the class described as imbeciles and harm less patients. These are generally incurable but we do not understand the purpose of a Hospital for insane to exclude all pronoun ced incurable. The object of a Hospital is to alleviate as well as cure, and there are many apparently incurable cases requiring constant treatment. The Stale pays for the treatment of all, and pays well. This, however, is by the wav. There is nothing new in the plan mentioned in the physician's letter. Every one who has paid tho least attention to the subject is familiar with the system as practiced in Europe for many years, and with great success. The newspapers of this country have contained lengthy descriptions, and the magazines, no tably Harpers' not many months ago, profuse illustrations of the villages a'nd settlements in the Alpine country. The Legislature must look to the expense. The land would cost comparatively little, and the European plan involves very little expense, being simple and comprehensive. The three quarters of a million expended at St. Peter might possi bly have been more judiciously used. We want neither marble palaces nor marble prisons, but homes, medical treatment, and care for the unfortunate, and with as little expense as possible. THE WAR ENDED-FEACE. Latest European intelligence indicates the conclusion of peace between Russia and Turkey. The great purpose of Russia will be accomplished in the opening of the Dar danelles to Russian ships of war. This, virtually, as to Russia, makes the Black sea free. Turkey has long since held the key, and the Black sea has been a mare claubion to all the world. Russian ships, during win ter, were blocked up in ice in the ports of the Baltic, or in friendly shelter at some neutral port. Hereafter they will winter in the parts of the Black Sea and Russia with the immense resources of timber and harbors thu3 opened, will soon become the great naval power of the world. We shall see, in a short time, the splendors and royalty of St. Petersburg transferred to the shores of the Black Sea, and the icy cold of the iceberg throne exchanged for the voluptuous gardens and palaces overhanging |g this hitherto closed sea. The effect on the power of Russia, will be tremendous. With mighty land forces, and a powerful navy, the empire will become invincible. The prophecy of Napoleon seems to be in the way of fulfillment. The immediate result of peace will be the release of all the garnered grain from the plains of Odessa, and the ports of the Black Sea will soon flood Western Europe. We have no means of knowing the amount on handbut be this small or large, these great grain fields of the earth will soon pour their golden harvests into commerce filling the markets of Europe. And the fate of Turkey is only postponed. The doom is sealed. The conflict, just ended, is the death knell of the "sick man." There was a time when the Moslem's banner bore victory on every field from Jerusalem to the city of Constantino, and the Cross of St. Sophia gave way to the Crescent of Moham med. The time has passed, and the reign of the Turk in Europe will soon be over. i^^MS^MmkimmAr^: IP SCHOOL ROOKS FRO AND CON. The Text Book Iniquity. Editor of the DALLY GLOBE: Though not an admirer of Superintendent Burt, I yet think that he deserves the lasting gratitude of the people of Minnesota for the stand he has taken on the text book ques tion. Had the law been styled an act to cripple and demoralize our common school system it g'ould have been more properly named, for had the worst enemies of our school sys tem studied for years, they could not have hit on a plan more ruinous to their efficiency than the text-book bill. The law of last win ter is a nullity, and could not be enforced: with the amendment of Senator Hall it would be full of injustice to many hundreds of our districts. According to the State Auditors report School Districts have debts amounting to over $570,000, most of which has been in curred in building and furnishing their school bouses, and for which they have is sued bonds, and under the law they have le vied taxes to pay principal and interest, the monies arising from such taxes they depend upon to pay their indebtedness Districts also levy a tax which with the current school fund will be sufficient to keep school the length of time ordered by the District. Under the text book law, as Senator Hall proposes to amend it, any of the money le vied for the above purposes can be detained from the Districts to pay for books never or dered by a vote of either the District or its officers. Bonds and interest must remain unpaid, jteachers must go without pay for their ser vices, or schools must close for want of means to pay their necessary expenses. om may say that this text book money will all be paid back to the school treasurer. How do they know? We have in the State nearly 3,700 clerks, many of them irrespon sible, and who are under no bonds, to whom we propose to entrust $300,000 worth of books the first year, and about one-third as much annually thereafter who will guarantee the districts against losses by defalcation, or otherwise. Again, what right has the State to compel 3.700 clerks to become retail book sellers, and to perform the work without compensation under penalty of fine and imprisonment? What justice is it to make the treasurer give bonds for the safe keeping of all mon ies belonging to the district, and then put part of it in anether officers hands without bonds? What justice is it to give the clerk the power to run the district in debt without the consent of the other trustees, and direct the monies belonging to it from the objects for which they were raised? What justice is there in forcing inferior books on thrf poor country schools against their will, and permitting the city schools to purchase where they can get them the best and cheapest, if we are to be compelled to take them, make the law binding on all alike, if the cities are to have a choice we demand the same rights? We of the country demand the right to spend our own money in our own way and deny the right of the State or any of its officers to rob us in the manner proposed in the text-book law. DANIEL GETTY. WHITE BEAB, Jan 26. How It Does Operate. Editor of the DAILY GLOBE: SIBIn your paper of Friday morning you undertake to say how the school text book law will operate, when put in force in accordance with your idea of the working of the law. Theory and practice are often at variance. I am one of those "district clerks, who give no bonds, and are often times ignorant and incompetent, as well as irresponsible." The text book law re quired of me as clerk to make out a list of books, that would be wanted. In the per formance of that duty, I obtained from the teacher a list of the books needed to supply the scholars then in school, and increased the order in the lower grades of books 25 per cent. The list was forwarded to the County Superintendent, and in due time I received the books from the County Auditor. The change of books was made, the scholars came forward and paid for what they bought, and the most gratifying feature of the whole matter is, that the enrollment of scholars has been increased 25 per cent., and I know it to be a fact, that this increase is from German families who could not afford the expense of purchas ing books for all their schoolable children when the price was double the State price. The teacher, Mr. G. S. Haseltine, formerly a principal in the Jefferson school of this city, and well known as a competent teacher, con siders the series of books introduced as equal to any he has ever used in a school room, and the "Language Lessons" as the best book he has ever seen for teaching grammar to beginners. Now, the only problem to be solved is, will the average school -dis trict clerk steal the money which he receives from the sale of books, while the director and treasurer are both members of the school board and interested to see that the clerk does his duty faithfully. The objections to the working of a law arc rather thin, when it is necessary to malign the character of three thousand clerks, who are elected by voters of the several school districts, and are usually chosen from the most responsible men in the district and are particularly thin when the average amount of book money they can have during anv one year will not exceed ten dollars for a district. Respectfully, DAVID RAMALEY, Clerk of School District No. 11, Ramsey Co. Goodhue County Won't Rob the Lord. [Red Wing Republican.] The work on a morning newspaper is done, almost wholly, on the day previous to its date. Now that the Pioneer-Press is is sued on Monday mornings, there must be regular work on Sundays. The compositors must violate the Sabbath or lose their "cases." Of course the only printer who lost his case was a Goodhue county man our old friend Robert Bryan. He was the only man who sacrificed his financial inter ests for his principles. The explanation is: he was from Goodhue county. Goodhue county is full of it. No one here robs the Lord of a day which he demands, or a neigh bor of his just dues. No one here lectures other people about their sins while hi steals from them every cent he owes them. They are all Spartanslike honest Robert Bryan fir even when it costs money to do right. anj How many men are there who lose money on account of their principles?that is outside of Goodhue county. i me ,f Urr a Patriots for Paris. [Wright Co. Eagle.] For some time past Minneapolis and St. Paul men, some of whom want to go to the Paris exposition at the expense of the State, have been agitating the matter and showing the importance and the great benefit to be derived by the State in being represented at the grand exposition in the French capital the coming summer, and Gov. Pillsbury in his annual message recommends an appro priation by the State legislature for that purpose. It is not necessary to say that the most ardent of these patriots who want to go to Paris are the governor's personal and political friends. Plantation Manners of New York Variety. [From the Washington PostDem.] Republican editors who have dwelt so fondly on the subject of "plantation man ners" since the Gordon-Conkling emeute, can now write essays on New England re finement, as illustrated by the senators from Massachusetts and Maine. ^ff&mm H.

[Jackson RepublicanRep.] The St. Paul DAILY GLGBE has made its appearance among our exchanges, vfo poli tics it is execrable, that is, Democratic, but as a newspaper it bids fair to be a grand sue. cess. A better looking paper would be hard to find. Sprightly Enough to Lire. [Owatonna JournalRep.] H. P, Hall. Esq., has started a Democratic morning newspaper at St. Paul called the GLOBE. It is a handsome seven column folio, and appears sprightly enough to live. anybody in the State can do the thhg Hall is the man. Will Fill a High Niche. [Janesville ArgusRep.] The DAILY GLOBE made its appearance up on our table the past week, and great was the rush to inspect it, and many and varied were the remarks made regarding it. On the whole it was pronounced worthy of H. P., and tho high niche it is intended to fiil. Long may it wave. Chance for Democrats. [Princeton UnionRep.J We are in receipt of the first and second numbers of the Sai.t Paul Daily GLOBE. The energetic and gentlemanly H. P. Hall is the publisher, and of course the GLOBE will be strictly democratic. Democrats, now you have a chance to subscribe for a democratic newspaper, improve your opportunity. Deserves a generous sujivort. [Renville Times. Rep.] The Daily Globe, St. Paul, has come to hand. It is a neat and newsy seven-column folio, and as full of news as an egg is full of meat. In short, it is a newspaper in an emi nent degree, and deserving of a generous support from the people at large, regardless of their political notions. Full of Aeics. [Worthington AdvanceRep.] We have received the first number of the DAILY GLOBE, the new Democratic paper started at St. Paul by that live journalist, H. P. Hall. The paper is full of news, and is alive and vigorous, It has a city-fied ap pearance, something like the N. Y. Sun. We wish the paper success in everything but its politics. Smells Might}/ Strang. [Glencoe RegisterRep.] That new Globe, started in St. Paul a few days ago, promises to be one of the most brilliant in the constellation of Minnesota journals. It glistens all over, but it smells mighty strong of democracy. We trust we shall not feel obliged to say of it that it "shines to stink and thinks to" shine like a rotten mackerel by moonlight. Neat and full of News. [Nedwood Gazette.Rep. We have received the first number of the Daily GLOBE issued at St. Paul, on Tuesday morning, by Harlan P. Hall, formerly of the Dispatch. It is very neat, democratic in politics and full of news. Mr. Hall has long had a reputation for making a red hot news paper and the initial number of the GLOBE indicates that the old disposition remains. Fountl Hi? Level. [Winnebago City PressRep.] St. Paul has got a new paper, THE DAILY GLOBE. It is a morning paper, and devoted to the welfare of the" Democratic party. It is edited by Bro. Hall, late of the Dispatch. Hall has found his level, at last, and has got the position he has so long coveted. The first numbers are received, and the paper makes a good appearance and full of news. One of the Rest in the World. [Messenger, Moriistown.] Just as we go to press we received No. 1, Vol. 1, of THE DAILY GLOBE, a new newspaper pub lished at St. Paul, Minn., by H. P. Hall. The GLOBE will be one of the best newspapers published for business men, as it will furnish the news of the world in such a condensed and attractive form that the busiest men will be able to keep fully posted on all current events and matters to their interest. If ill Prove Successful. [Wright County TimesRep.] St. Paul has anew morning paper, Demo cratic in politics, and under the management of H. P. Hall, the energetic founder of the Dispatch. There is a fine opening for such an enterprise, and Mr. Hall's experience and natural qualifications warrant the prediction that this new venture, which we are confident he has had in contemplation for a considera ble length of tftae, will prove successful. Equal to any Paper in the West. [Faribault Democrat.Dem.) Tuesday morning last, the DAILY GLOBE, a new morning daily Democratic journal made its appearance in St. Paul, H. P. Hall, formerly of the Dispatch, appearing as edi tor and proprietor. Mr. Hall is one of the ablest newspaper managers and writers in the State, and he will call around him a corps of assistants that will make the GLOBE the equal, if not the superior, of any paper in the West. ,0 Commended to *he Democracy. [Wells Advocate, Rep.) H. Hall is the editor and proprietor of a new daily just established in St. Paul, called the Daily GLOBE. It is a neat, newsy, and creditably edited sheet, highly commenda tory to the Democratic party. It rises above bitter radicalism, and advocates the broad principles that underlie the government of its party. We commend it to our Democra tic friends. 3GO Issues in Leap Year. [Stillwater MessengerRep. The St. Paul DAILY GLOBE made its ap pearance last Tuesday morning having been first heralded only a few days before." It is a morning paper, intensely Democratic in politics, and it is rumored it is to be published 365 times every year except leap year, when the number of 'issues will be 366. H. P. Hall is the editor and pubhsher. As the saying is. "if any one can make it win, he can." N Equal to the TasTe. [Farmers Union & Minneapolis TribuneRep.] St. Paul rejoices in another daily morning paper, called TEE DAILY GLOBE. It is Dem ocratic in politics, is published by H. P. Hall, whose experience as a newspaper man and the ample means at his command are sufficient assurance that THE GLOBE has come to stay. It is a newsy, ably conducted and neatly printed sheet, and will prove it self, we think, equal to the task of maintain ing its ground in the field of morning jour nalism in Minnesota,. Glad of It. I Little Falls Transcriptr-Rep.] Notwithstanding the fact that we cannot fully agree with the GLOBE on political is sues, we are glad that the Democracy of this State are to have so able a representative of their principles, and all may rest assured that the GLOBE will discuss the issues of the day a fair and honorable manner. If the Derirocrats of Minnesota do not rally to the support of this paper, they deserve to be per manently shut out from having a healing for their principles. i" First Class Daily. *&~ [Owatonna ReviewInd.]* iJ"'*--" The initial number of the St. Paul DAILY GLOBE made its appearance on Tuesday morning of this week. It is a seven column folio, and presents every evidence of being a SPSS' first class daily newspaper. Mr. H. P. Hall is known throughout the State as one of the most able and energetic newspaper men in Minnesota, and the successful manner in which he established the Dispatch will be a pretty sure guarantee that he will also make a success of his new enterprise. Synonym of Success. [Peoples AdvocateInd.] H. P. Hall, the founder and former pro prietor of the St. Paul Dispatch, has pur chased the Associated Press morning fran chise pertaining to the defunct St. Paul Press, and on Tuesday last, the first number of the DAILY GLOBE, a red-hot morning Dem ocratic daily was issued. At the head of a newspaper venture, Hall's name is a syno nym of success, and predictions of future prosperity for the coming journal of the northwest is unneccessary. Raise Hell and Sell Neivspapers. [Reed's Landing Press,Ind. It used to said of Harlan P. Hall that his business was to raise hell and sell newspapers The former part of the business has been abolished by Henry Ward Beecher and the Duluth Tribune but the latter is quite true, and to do it he must beget them. Last week Mr. H. astonished the world by announcing the birth of the St. Paul daily GLOBE, which is to be democratic and red hot. The dem ocrats of the State, we have no doubt, will rally to the support of Mr. Hall and 4he GLOBE and make it a pecuniary success for him. Success in the Title. [Anoka Sun and RepublicanInd] The St. Paul DAILY GLOBE. Success lurks in the very title compressed in the above head, and when it is remarked that the name of H. P. Hall appears at the head of this new candidate for public favor, all preconceived doubts of the entire success of the enterprise at once disappears like the dew before the morning sun. But enough of vagaries. St. Paul has anew morning paperTHE DAILY GLOBEand the first number lays before us, bristling through and through, as it were, with life and enterprisea very embodiment of that active body and brain that have ush ered it into existence. Sticcess from the Start. [St. Charles Times, Dem.] A new morning Democratic daily paper, called the DAILY GLOBE, H. P. Hall, Editor and proprietor, was launched upon the read ing world, at St. Paul, on Tuesday morning. With H. P. Hall at the head of it. it means success from the start. The Democracy of Minnesota are to be congratulated upon hav ing an able, independent, fearless, metropoli tan daily journal, and that it starts out un der the management of one of the most successful journalists in the Northwest. Long may the GLOBE make its daily travels to battle corruption and official jobbery everywhere. A Chance to Try. [Faribault RepublicanRep.] NEW DEMOCRATIC DAILY.A new Demo cratic morning daily, the .GLOBE, has been commenced at St. Paul. It is under the management of that able and energetic newspaper man, Harlan P. Hall, who will make a success of it if any man can. He has purchased of tho Pioneer Press estab lishment the privilege of the associated press dispatches. The new establishment will have up-hill work in making headway against the formidable competition of the Pioneer-Press, but Hall has been itching for a chance to try the experiment ever since he disposed of the Dispatch, and has courage and a good supply of "the sinews of war."

Diamond Jo is negotiating with one of the Eau Claire mill companies, for taking their lumber by barges to tho company's sales yards in different towns along the Mis sissippi.

A lively Hquabble is going on in Lyon county over county treasury matters. The treasurer having been elected a member of the legislature this fall, the county board acting on the advice of t"he Attorney General proceeded to appoint a treasurer. Before leaving for St. Paul the treasurer appointed a deputy and left him in charge of the books and papers of the office, and refuses to rec ognize the appointee of the board. Tho re sult will probably be a law suit that will be decided a year or two after the expiration of the present treasurer's term of office, Inch will be January 1st next.Xuc Z'lm Herald.

While in St. Paul the other day we met Mr. Collins, the mill man, who in company with Mr. Drake, is now alxmt to make the contracts for the mill at this place. On that day he and Mr. Drake had completed their partnership affairs, and were ready to take hold in earnest.

His First Visit to Washington-Satisfied With the White HouseOhio Senators. Washington Cor. Philadelphia Times,] As nothing of state mystery was talked upon here, I put down the chat we had with the President to satisfy curiosity about him. He always spoke off at the instant in a clear, hearty voice: "Mr. President, there is verj little change in your appearance?" "I do not see or feel any change. Some come in and tell me I look thinner, others say I am fuller. But I was weighed a few days ago and stand at the same figure I did one year ago. neither a pound less nor more." "Do you like the climate of Washington? Does it agree with you?" "Yes, it is very much the same as the cli mate of Columbus. This is a sociable and interesting city." "When did you first visit Washington?" "I came here first in 1845. It was a small beginning then for what it is now, a large and spreading place."' "Did you then enter this mansion and see Mr. Polk?" "I have tried to remember whether I met him here or at some other place. I am sure I met him, but cannot settle upon the spot. It was at that time, and in Washington, how- ever." Thirtj -three years ago a third of a cea- tury?" It was gratifying to me," said the Presi dent, "to meet Mrs. Polk after that lapse of time in Nashville, as I did last fall. She pre serves the elegant manner and digmtj of former times, and lives in comfort, well le garded by all." Said I: "After President Polk died it was a newspaper and society rumor that John M. Clayton was to ha^e married her. was Secretary of State under the succeeding ad ministration of Taylor." She lives still," said the President, an accomplished lady. I had also the pleasure of meeting the widow of President Taj lor at Richmond. These two exctllent ladies are among the few urs Ivors of other admin istrations." I suppose you do not now go gunniiigr" No though the gunning, I am told, is good about here." "Yes: snipe, quail and, down the river, duck are plentiful." They have deer in Virginia," President. In West Virginia?" Yes. and in old Virginia, too. told at Richmond. Down to the of Richmond theie are deer." THE WHIIE HOUSE "Is this mansion sufficiently comfortable for a residence? For some jearswehavo been locally debating the erection of a sepa rate private residence for the Piesident." "Yes, this is very good. I do not see any need of any more house. It is a large, com fortable residence. If the weather is too hot in summer there is delightful place foi the inhabitants here at tho Soldiers' Home." The President's onh daughter, a pale lit tle blonde of nine or ten jtars, came up now and put hei aim round his neck and he put his round her aist. and they stood thus as long as we remained. "I heard jour voice at tLe inauguration very well, standing out among the crowd." "The Picsidtnt has one of the most pow erful voices of the country." said my com panion, an old stump speaker. "You can heai him as far as am body who speaks." "I have a voice of fair compass and experi ence has done something foi it." said tho President. After your life of exercise in the open air are not the manifold little indoor dutit,- heie said the So 1 was SOllttKi'st oppressive.' No there is so nmeh variety in the life of this building that I get wonder, instruction and amusement from it. All kinds of people on every conceivable errand, think that if they can only see the President their troubles are ended. Theie was a man here to-day about inebriate asjlums. He wanted to talk with me ten minutes on that subject". Said I, 'I can not give you ten minutes 'Can I have five minutes?' he asked. -What is it you want, sir?" I said. "Well, the old English notion was: Touch the king and be cured of your evil. Dr. Johnson's aunt took him to Queen Anne to be touctu d. "I don't mind lho- who merely want to shake hands," said PriMdent Hajis. "'lhat is a pleasure and relief. They often help me out of a dilemma. Tor example: I may have some persistent, obduiate office-seeker or officer-manager. He will press his point, perhaps, until he has put h:s knees against mine and demands a "jes" or 'no.' It may be that I-feel rising temper at his aggressive ness. Then I think ot the people outside. They aie alwajs let in on presentation of a card 'respects only.' I see some of thtm at the instant, desirous to shake hands. "So I turn from the unxileasant callar, and while I talk a minute to the people have a chance to calm my mind and piepare to answer the question." A LITTLE POLITICS. "At last. Mr. President, Ohio has two Democratic Senators. Mr. Pendleton's dic tion yesterday seems to gi\e satisfaction." "He was. perhaps, the best of the soft money element, as we call it. If a man of that kind was to be elected. Mr. Pendleton is little to be regretted as any. He did intro duce into the debates of our Demociatic friends, who were wont to be rather rough and-tumble in their style of speaking, the element of the gentleman. He was the first of their leaders to conduct public discussions with courtesy andieciprocity." "They all admit that his debate with Car field was a civilized tournament." "I can say of Ewing the same thing," said the President. "He is a gentleman, also. Indeed, I know General Ewing better than Mr. Pendleton." "I wonder. Mr. President, that the Demo crats did not select a Senator from Northern Ohio, the Republican stronghold, with a hope to modify this vote." "They have few or none of their net? bio leaders there. Mr. Paj'ne is an excellent man, but the Democrats seldom incline to ward one who has been a Republican at any time." "The tone of opinion since the adjourn ment of Congress for the holidays, has been more strongly in your support." "Everything is moving on well," answered the President, "except, perhaps, the business relations of the towns and cities. The times revive slowly yet I look for revival. Ih results that sprang from such a war as ours, are universal in their reach. We are slowly undertaking and grappling with them, and discord, at least, is over. I look next for better times." Michigan'), I'tintiy Man. One of the most disagreeable featnres of a debate in the House is the everlasting squeak of that Michigan wind insrumeLt. the Hon. Snarleyow Conger. This person adds to a remarkable ugly face a cracked voice and rasping tone that is very irritating to a healthy tympanuin. and posith ely agonizing to an ear of delicate sensibility. By some inscrutable process this man has been pro foundly impressed with the idea that he is both a wit and an orator, as is rendeied pain fully evident by his continual pearch for op portunities to display his ugly mug and wind his hideous horn. Somebody ought to sit down hard on him. A Touching Spectacle. [New York Sun.] It is a spectack?Beecher weeping at the contemplation of human v.ickednech. Mr. Pecksniff was a pretty moral man, and his mind was frequently exercised by the frailtj' of his fellow-worms and the variety of their pursuits, but we nowhere read that they moved him to tears. Even the morality of a Pecksniff is preferable to the sicltning gush of Beecher.
