Gilbert and Sallivan’s new comic
opera, *“The Princess Ida,”” was brou’lght
out in London on Baturday night. The
following song is sung by Gama, the
Philanthropist King, who has a crooked
leg, a club-foot, and a hunch back:

Reminisences of an Old Con
In looking over the {wo precedin
chapters I am fully a'-are that they roagl
like a long sequel to what may turn out
to be a smail book; yet in the very nature
of the case it was quite as necessary to the
facts to be conveyed as the details of
the stories themselves.
Radnor is put as the caption to the
succeeding chapters simply because
it nwhs | the! | 'scene | of the inci:
dents related in them, and from its
location and the character of its people
it gives a fair example of the influences
that controlled in the formation of the
public sentiment that made it impossible
that the slave-holdingßouth and the free
labor North should dwell tfogether in
Radnpor is the extreme northern town
ship of Delaware county, in this State,
bordering on the northeast on the Mer
rions, in Montgomery, and Tredyffrinn, in
Chester counties. ,
As the names of all the townships
around it, as well as Radnor itself, indi
cate, the region was settled by immi
grants from Wales, and if that were not
sufficient to indicate their extraction, the
names of tbe leading families at the time
of which I am speaking would settle the
guestion, Lowis, Richards, Abragms,
giter, George, Leedom, Pugh, Brookes,
Palmer, Morgan, Childs, Worrall, Maule,
Harding, Kimber, Aikin, Blackfan,
Cleaver, Bartleson, tell more than tomes
of family mystery, of the origin of the good
people of l){»dnor. They were still, at
the time of which I am writing, not so
far descended from the men who
crossed the seas, but many among
them retained lingual notes peculiar to
the Welsh tongus, indicated in the cut
tin‘f of the tails o 1 some words off short,
and still mare in the peculiar Welsh tem
per, which scme have defined as obsti
nacy, but which is really only tenacity
of purposc, carried a litile towards the
verge of excess.
Dear old Radnor! How, over the long
vista of years, my heart goes back to
those scenes. I smell the clover blows
as the wind bears their fragrance to me
in fancy again, and hear it gently breath
ing on its way; I see the dark ranges of
her rustling corn, and the green and
golden sheen of her waving wheat fields;
while like echoes come back to me the
sounds of happy voices from the rose
covered farmsteads, nestled among the
archards. Again I see the farmer and
his wife greet with cordial friendliness
the strangers who have come to live
mong them.
“I am glad to meet thee, and hope the
acquaintance we shall make with each
other, will be pleasant.”’
“These are thy boys are they ! Well,
thee must let them come over and get ac
quainted with Hannahand Evan. They'll
have high times there. My boy and girl
are great players and will enjoy their
new friends. Would thee like to come?”’
the good woman said, as she laid her
hand on m y head, and bending over
until her sweet face shone upon me from
the depths of her sugar scoop drab bon
net, with eyes dancing bright with kind
ness and merriment. and with an air of
mock cecrecy added, ‘“we have apples in
our orchard ripe already. I’'m sure thee
likes apples does thee not 7"’ |
Thus Squire Lewis’ wite. Dear aunt
Susan—who grew into all hearts that ap
proached her.
Is it any wonder she captured me the
fipst attack; or that I never rebelled; oy
that she lives in my heart among its
fondest memories ; or that to me the
ground is hallowed where she lies ; or
that her sons and daughters have ever
been to me, whether in their useful lives,
or, as with some of them honorable deaths
on the battle field, something nearer than
Then again having captured me she
turned her batteries on mother again.
“We are plain people licre, and 1 like
thee. lam surc we will be friends, but
we must know each others names. Mine,
is Susan, my husbard is Abner. Now
what is thine and thy husband’s ¥ Cathe
rine and Jolin ! Now Catherine, thee
must bring John, and come over to spend
the evening, then we will be neighbors.
Be sure and come soon. I must go now,
the men will be wanting their sug,per."
And the good woman flashing like a
sunbeam, sprang into her wagon,
gave the reins a jerk, and ‘‘come Dol-
Iy,” and the little fat, round mare trotted
off, friskipg her tail and bobbing her
head, as ifslje had caught something of
the sweet humor and jollity of her mls
Thus our first call in our new home,
and from that day Susan Lewis was ours
in all loving neighborhood and kind
ness—the color soon began to deepen
again in my mother's face—and when
Susan and Abner came alon{; on First
day, and said, “*Catherine, would thee not
like to go to meeting with us? If thee
would, jump in. We kept a sgat an pur
jiose for thee, thinking thiee might like to
go,”” mothet took her seat with alacrity.
Was it ang wonder that mother went
every First day, though she was reared a
Lutheran, that she came home once
deeply moved by a sermon delivered by
“George. Truman,”’ and. that within a
ear she was received into the gociety of
z?fiends as a full member, on conviction?
° But it is not my province to fiive char
acter sketehes of the good people of Rad
nor; were it so, there would be plenty of
material, as there is in all ncig}xborboods,
from which to portray the oddities of our
fellows. So far as it is essential that they
should appear, they will do so as they
act in the story. i
It was about the year 1830 when we
became residents of Radnor, god 1 was
flien in my gixth year.
I became a pup{l at the school at “‘Rad-
I nor Meeting,” and helped in all the
| pranks played by the boys, had my pupp;
| loves with rretty Mary {eedom, ({ignifieg
Rachel Morgan, timid little blonde, Eliza
George; was tutored, advised, directed
' and looked after by little Hannah Lewis,
the quaintest and truest miniature pat
tern of her mother that ever was seen,
' and even rose to the dignity in the course
of years, of being well lat%ered by her
brother Sam, when he had become school
My first recollection of political conflict
dates from about two years after my life
' at Radnor began.
I had strolled up to the line of the new
railroad, some two or three hundred
yards from the house, where men were
sitting on square blocks of white stone
and drilling holes in them. This work
must have been in progress for some
time, for the cuttings and fillings were
finisiied at that point; but this incident
marks m;\; first conscious memory of the
road. Thad, as T say, wandered over
the field to the line ot the road, and stood
watching the men drilling the stones.
One of them chancing to notice me,
dropped his hammer ang cried:
““Hello!me b’y, and phwats yer name?”’
I told him, trembling at the same time
with fear, for all the rest had stopped
and were staring at mne.
““An’ phwared’ ye's live? my man.”’
I pointed down to the house.
‘“ls it the toll taker’s b’y ye’s are?”
I nodded my head affirmatively.
“Arragh! b’ys, did ye’s hear that.
Here’s the toll taker’s b’y, an’ he’ll be
after takin’ a job, I jealous,an the works,”’
shouted my new acquaintance, and then
to me again. -
“I'm saying! me b'y. How’d ye’s
like to be a powdther monkey ?”
[ can feel the hair crawling up the back
of my head now as I did then, as I tried
to form some conception of what a
*‘ powdther monkey '’ might be. ‘
A general laugh, which seemed to me
to be dreadfully threatening, ran through
the crowd, until my interlocutor addressed |
me again, |
“ Phwat the devil d’ye’s shtand there
gapin’ at, ye spalpeen. Don’t ye's know
phwat a powdther monkey is?”’
I :+hook my head negatively.
“D’ ye’s see the bucket an’ the cup
there?’ Pointing to where it stood be
hind a large stone with the cup floatin
on the water. ‘ Bring the cup here wig
some wather in it.”’
I did as he told me, and he drank the
water, winking at his fellows as he did
so. ‘“There,” said he, “now ye’s’ll take
it back a§ain.”
When I had returned the cup to its
place. “That’s it my b'y. that’s bein’ a
powdther monkey. Ye's'll jist take the
wather around to the min, an’ the
whusky phwin we have any. Wud ye's
loike to be a powdther monkey ?”’
By this time familiarity had given me
courage, and I felt flattered with the pro
posal made, and was ready enough to
take ‘“a job on the works.”” So I replied
“I will if Pap will let me.”’
‘“‘An’ phwy wouldn’'t he let ye’s?”’
said my friend. ‘Here’s yer powdther
monkey, b’ys, 1 intnroi')uce him til ye’s.’
“Hould up there, Paddy !”” shouted
onc of the others at this point. “Is he a
Dimicrat ?”’
“Av ccorse he's a Dimicrat,”’ said
Paddy. “Phwy wouldn’t he be?”’
Then turnin% to me—
‘““Are ye’s a Dimicrat me b’y ?”
I replied, after some hesitation, that I
did not know. Which was probably
“Ye's don’t I"” he exclaimed. ‘‘Arrah !
but isn’t this a nice b’y for powdther
monkey ? Phwats yer Pap? Is he a
Jackson man ?”’
“I don’t know,”” replied I. ‘I guess
not. He told Uncle Josy Harding last
night he didn’t think it was right to elect
military men President.”’
“Och ! Murdther ! Murdther !”” shouted
Paddy. “D’ye’s hear that b'ys. Je’s
not a Dimicrat.”’
He sprang to his feet with fierce ges
tures, as did all the rest, all erying, “‘Or
roo! did ye's hear that? Murdther!
Murdther ! &c.”
I was sure they were terribly angry,
and thought they were going to kill e,
and the first thing [ knew afterward, was
hearing the crowd breaking out in up
roarous laughter, which sounded to me
like the knell of doom, while I was half
way across the field and nearing home
like a hunted ravbit, where I bounded
into the arms of a stout, beautifully
formed, and fine featured dark mulatto
girl, who exclaimed as she folded me
close to her bosom with her strong and
protecting arms—
“ Why honey ! Fo' de Lo’d’s sake !
What has sca’ed ye so?
It was a long time before I again called
on the dimicrats, who were driTling holes
in the stones on the railroad.
When going over to Squire Lewis’ the
way to whose place lay past the gang, I
would walk around by George’s lane, a
quarter of a mile further, to avoid being
seen by them. I bad my first lesson in
Democracy, and didn’t like it. In fact I
have never acquired a very warm liking
for it since, though I must confess tobav
ing tried at various times, since I have
read up Jeflerson, whose political phil
osophy seems to me to be perfect.
The difficulty with the Democrats as I
have seen them is, that they narrow the
application of Jeffersonian prmmsfles like
the selfish Christian did his blessings.

Growing Democratic Opposition to the
WasHINGTOY, Jan. 9 —The position of
Senator Thurman on the Civil Service
law in general and Senator Pendletan’s
responsibility for it 1n particular affords
considerable comment in political circles.
The outspoken antagonism on the part of
the Democratic party in Ohio and the
disasters it has brought to the Pendleton
senatorial interests will have the effect of
strengthening the opposition among the
Democrats in Congress, The goamments
among the Diemocratic leaders are gener
ally favcrable to a wiping out of the
whole scheme, on the ground that it is
contrary to Democratic traditions, and
the enforcement of the scheme would
cause a greater loss of support than could
otherwise bé gained. K.

WasHIiNgTON, Jan. B.—Senator Ed
munds, in conversation with the corres- ‘
pondentof the TELEGRAPH on the outlook |
of the Republican party, said that he ap
preciated the kind wishes of his friends, ‘
but that he regarded himself as outside of
the limits of probable candidates, and for
two reasons: First, that he had no long
ing in that direction, and secondly, that
if he had he presumed he would not be
the choice of the political leaders of the
party. For this reason he might say that
'he spoke from disinterested motives. He
“ thought that the experiences of the Re
publicans in 1882 had done the party as
well as the people a real service.
It had taught the party leaders
that there was a residuary power
in the people, which they were
ready to exercise in defense of their own
interests, and not of individuals, and it
had given the people a sample of the
kind of material which they might ex
pect to come to the surface under the cir
cumstances of a Democratic success. As
a result, he said, the Republican party is
stronger to-day than it has been for the
past ten years. He said that he now had
no doubts whatever of Republican suc
cess—that is, unless the Chicago conven
tion should nominate a candidate so ob
jectionable that the harmony of the party
would be seriously impaired. He be
lieves that the Chicago convention will
be sagacious enough to see this and will
profit by experience. The Senator said
that he had received a gredt number of
letters from every part of the country, and
the found in them the right spirit every
where looking to success. He thought
hat there were three or four persons in
the Republican party who could be
elected. K.
What the Ex-Speaker Fears From DMor
rison, Hurd and Hewitt.
WasHiNgTON, Jan. B.—Mr. Randall
says that his anxiety to have the appro
priation bills well under way at the ear
licst moment is due to the certainty of
a bitter and acrimonious debate on the
tariff question. The ex-Speaker evi
dently sces in the attitude of Morrison,
Hurd and Hewitt, of the Domocratic
wing of the committee on Ways and
Means, a fine prospect tor a grand row
within the Democratic camp, which will
consume much time. Morrison is for
revenue on a free-trade basis, Hurd is for
revision in order to ‘‘knife’’ the iron men
of Pennsylvania, and Hewitt is for free
raw materials for his own furnaces and
the wages of American workmen scaled
down to the rates of a tariff framed on
the difference between labor in Europe
and the United States. If Hewitt and
his Democratic friends have their way
there will be no difference discernible.
It will be pauper wages for American as
well as British workmen. K.

Relations of Agriculture to Other Indus
WasHINGTON, Jan. B.—The depart
‘ment of agriculture has prepared a state
‘ment of the relations of agriculture to
other industries, which reveals the sug
gestive facts that lands bear an increased
price, farmers enjoy a better incoma and
farm labor receiyes higher wages, in pro
poriion to the increase of the fnon-agri
cultural classes of occupations, This re
port would bea valuable document for
the blatherskites who are howling for
free trade and frequently mislead the ag
riculiural population into the belief that
free trade and the conseguence suspen
sion of manufacturege or reduction of
wages to the scale of pauperism, would
be of greatadvantage to them.
Progress in Virginia Versus Pennsylvania.
The report presents Virginia with her
hossted landed aristocracy and farmers,
and Pennsylvania with her large popula
tion of mechanics and artisans as exam
ples, and shows by the statistics of the
eensus of 1880, that while in the former
State with more than 58 per cent. of her
population farmers, lands average less
than $lO 00 an acre, while in Pennsylva
nia, with 18 per cent. farmers, they aver
a%e $4O 00 an acre, and while the farmer
of Virginia has an income of 8160, the
farmer of Pennsylvania has 8431,
Farm Values as Affectod by Manufactures.
The report contains a table showing
the value of farms in States having a di
versification of industries and based on
the figures of the census of 1880, as fol
lows: Fourth class, 77 per cent, of popu
lation employed in agriculture, §5 18 pey
acre. Third class sgnp¢.t gent., 13 53
T #cTo. fleeanci class, 42 per cent.,
Rgo 55 per acre, and first class, 18 per
cent., 838 63 per acre. The income of
the farmer is even more extraordinary in
its increase in proportion as the non-agri
cultural population increases. For in
stance, taking the classes as above enu
merated, the farmers in States of the first
class, or having but 18 per cent. agricul
tural population realize in the value of
their products 8437; in the second class
04: ix the third class $261, and in the
urth x(‘:h;\,ss $l6O. That is the ene million
farmers in the States where manufactures
flourish realize for their products nearly
three times as much as the two million
farmers in the States where manufactures
are not encouraged.
wages of Farm Labor,
The wages of farm labor are also ben
efitted for the same reasons. The report
shows that in 1870, when wages and
prices were high and manufactures ac
tive, farm labor averaged $34 in manu
facturing and but $l5 in agricultural
States. During the panic the employ
ment of a large non agricultural popula
tion having been suspended, farm labor
was a drug on the market. In 1882, a
year of prosperity in manufactures, the
wages of farm labor went up to $25 in
the first and second class States, as above
£l9 50 in the third, and $l3 20 in the
How an intelligent farmer, in the face
of these facts, can support a free trade
party is a mystery. Such Senators as
Beck, such editors as Watterson, such
speakers as Carlisle, such chairmen as
Morrison, and such Representatives as
Hewitt might do well to read this report.
The Lutheran Church Saddened by the
Mournful Event.
The sad intelligence was flashed over
the wires yesterday from Omaha, Ne
braska, that Rev. George F. Stelling, D.
D., the eminent Lutheran divine who for
ten years ministered to the spiritual wants
of a large congregation in this city, was
no more, his death having resulted from
congestion of the brain. Nothing more
was contained in the dispatch, but it was
sufficient to fill with sadness the hearts of
meny in this city who loved and honored
Dr. Stelling occupied the pulpit of the
First Lutheran church of this city on
Sunday, November 18th. In the morn
ing he preached from the text ‘“Take no
thought for the morrow,”” etc. In his
introductory remarks he spoke very im
pressively of his former work here, of
his hard labor and trials in the West, and
of his fear at times in regard to the tem
poral wants of himself and his large
family, but, on the other hand, he said,
all their necessities were always met.
The sermon was a very edifying one,
assuring the hearers that God always
cares for his people. Tm the evening by
special request, Dr. Stelling repeated his
sermon on ‘“The Three Mounts”—
Mounts Sinai, Tabor and Calvary—a
discourse that had been delivered here
during his pastorate of the First church.
On Wednesday evening, November
21st, Dr. Stelling delivered, in the lecture
room of the above church, his last ad
dress to the congregation—acongregation
to which he was endeared both as pastor
and preacher. His theme was the glory
and grandeur of the Christian’s future,
and the lecture will never be forgotten
by those who heard it. Many persons
wept, and the very large number who re
mained to say good-bye to the speaker
was an evidence that Dr. Stelling had a
strong hold on the affections of those to
whom he ministered in former years.
Little did his warm-hearted friends think
that on that night they were giving him
a final farewell. He left for the West
the same night, expecting to visit this
city again in 1885, when the General
Syrod will hold its biennial session here.
Less than a year ago Dr. Stelling had a
severe attack of typhoid pneumonia, at
home in Omaha, and for a number of
weeks his recovery was a matter of un
certainty, but his health was so far re
stored that he was enabled to resume his
pastoral work. But when here in No
vember he was still suffering from the
effects of his long illness.
He leaves a wife in delicate health and
ten children to mourn the death of a lov
ing husband and kind father.
Rev. Dr. Stelling was born in Stalze
nau, Germany, (Kingdom of Hanover)
November 19, 1829. He came to America
with his parents in his childhood, 1833.
In 1837 he located in the State of Ohio,
and while a young man wasengaged asa
clerk in a store. He afterwards entered
Wittenberg College, at Springfield,
Ohio, where he was educated parti
ally by his own efforts and partially
by the liberality of the church. After
graduating in 1857 and receiving a theo
logical education under Dr. Sprecher,
(pastor of the Fourth strect church from
1836 to 1841), he entered upon pastoral
work in his first charge at New Pbila
delphia. From this charge he went to
Canton, Ohio, and from thence to this
city, where he was called in December,
1865. Dr. Stelling remodeled the church
here at an expense of $45,000. He re
mained here about nine years and a half,
during which time he received four hun
dred and fifty-five persons into t
church, In 1873 he waselected a professor
in Wittenberg college, and resigned to
accept, but finally withdrew his resigna
tion, and continued as pastor until June
20, 1875. He then went to Red Hook,
N. Y., where he remained about two
years; then to Dayton, 0., where he re
mained about three years; then to
Omaha, Neb., where he died.
He was elected president of the
East Pennsylvania Synod and subse
guently president of the General Synod,
the highest body in the Lutheran chuch
in America.
The remains of the deceased will be
brought to Bucyrus, Ohio, for interment,
and the funeral will take place there on
Dr. Stelling during his pastorate in this
city commanded the respect of its citizens
without regard to congregational connec
tion. He was a gentleman, of urbane
manners, di~uified presence, courteous
and affable in his treatment of the people,
and very naturally made many warm
friends. Asa preicherhe wasimpressive,
eloquent and earnest, attracting large
eongregations, and wielding |an
influence for good that is felt in his
congregation and in the city to this day.
An able man, an honest preacher, and a
fearless servant of the Divine Master, af
ter an active life of loving labar he has
passed to his reward. For his family the
heartfelt sympathy of our Kop\e go out
in_this the hour of their sad bereavement.
1t is mentioned as a somewhat singu
lar circumstance that the first place Rev.
Dr. Stelling stopped at when he came to
larrisburg to commence his pastoral
work was the residence of Mr. John B.
'Simon, on Market street, and his last day
in this city was spent at the same place.
His death yesterday is mourned alike by
thousands of Christian people, irrespee
tive of denominational lines.
