Should wo, can wo resist tho p rendu re of our own con victions ? "Can wo at k oi others to do for our country and our friends that wbieb wo will not do ournelves ,' Jt has boon aaid : 'Truth is mit'lily and ill prevail." But wn cannot bo idloi recipients; we must seek lor it, long tor it, atrivo for it. So it ia witb the oaasoof Temperance. It our land is ever freed from tho vilo destroyer, In temperanco, it must bo by human ac tion. All good comos Irom tiod, but His plan is the labor of man for man. liy the guidance of His spirit we must exhunnt every means tbat Ho 'has placed at our disposal ; every ability Ue has given us, as well aa call upon Him to finish the work. Wo must strive while we pray. I know not whether it is because of strength or weak news that 1 am what I am; but wo know well thut what ever our abilities, it is onrduty to use them for the public and our private weliarc, and to improve them to the utmost. 1-would say to thoso assembled here, with all thanks to the many who have stood forth boldly fur tba cause, there it work lor each to do. There are othei fields of action. This is but tbo training ground for the battle of life. Wordsalone will not conquer we must do and dure. If there are those who would not appear in public, at last all depends on jirivato action. You can cheer us with your presence ; you can persuade a neighbor to come with you ; may oven prosorve bim from temptation ; your ballot ia as weighty as if cast by tbe most learned and honored ; your influence upon others van not bo estimatetl. There ia not a person before me to-day but whoae presence hero shall have an influenco upon me from now to eternity. You are forming not your own character only, but that of hundreds. Your an peurance baa a greater innuendo than all tbe sermons you might preach. A momentary glance, a single word, may be equal to a volume. It has been ao with me, and from some well known to yon. Tbat Temperance should be come a political question appears to be the desire of a large portion ot the reformers, and to make it sucb ia one ot their principal endeavors ; but the cause has made slow advances in this direction. There are other questions over which the publto mind hua been much excited that this bas been dropped at the trying moment. From this wo sbould learn a lesson : I em perance ia not the only question before tbe American people. At present it can not be decided alone and by the ballot, rolitically, one plana, how ever broad, cannot ba a platform. 1 ben, it we most accept otber pnnci pics ii we must Onito let it ba with the right ; ws cannot join truth and error they will combat still I llut how shall we become respected politically I We must show our strength ; we must seek onion, but be firm enough to stand alone. I favor political action, because it is the moat complete, tba most rapid solution of this great question : because it would giva a forward impetus to tba public mind an inoreaaeu force to moral suasion. We are a progressivo nooplo, and it may not be long until this ques tion is presented In sucb a form tbat when tbo day cornea, as it soon may ,our sisters should cast their ballots witb us. Rut ba that aa it may, right it right, aa truth ia truth, and right the day must win. - Sooner or lator lbs time depends onon our action the destroyer will be removed from our midst, though it ahould be but by tbe siow procesa ol moral suasion and human advancement. I'erhaps God ia retarding tbe day mat another a Kindred evil may fall with it. Tobacco and alcohol twin servants of the evil one aet forth to rob men ot their manhood, destroy tbeir minds and steal away their souls. Ob, what sorrows and anguish follow ia tneir traca, words cannot utter I Young man, atop I Set down tbat glass ' ltaisa not tbe poison to lb lipel Why tempt tbcodeath? Why leap into theguH? Can any one rescue ? Tompt not thy Got! I 1 bine own acta shall torn thy fato. la tbe appetite already formed ?. la It not easier to resist than die, to make one firm and final stand, than to reaitt and fall re CLEARFIELD, sist and full again, even among the prayers, tbe entreaties, the tears of friends and parents, and at last to sink down, down to the drunkard's grave ? The prayers, the tears, tbe entreaties or friends all gone ! es, gone colore to confront thee at a higher bar of judgment I Tby own hopes with them ; thy struggles ot no avail, thy young life blasted, and thy doom well-known. Beware of tbe first glasa ! "Hay not with temptation" give not way weakly thereto, but stand firm and thou shaft resist with a strength that comoth down from Heaven tor thy salvation. Who among us shall it be? Will it be I or some of you ? Unless this evil is removed we know tbat some now present, some from this community, may fill yes, shall fill a drunkard's grave; their life work unperformed ; their days not half numbered, tbeir light, gone out in sorrow and remorse. Who shall it be? Shall it bo 1 or shall It he you ? Will some one for whom toe have labored, labor and pray and strive with us? Will they at last, when all is o'er on earth, lay our weak wrock of manhood away in the silent place of grave the city of the dead, while some aorrow.crunbod mourner exclaims. "Through God ho was the means of my salvntion," but I was pow erless to preserve him! We know not but that this may ho our lot, or tho lot of some near and dear to us. There is but ono safeguard, remove tbe evil. And for its removal let us join band with band, bcart with heart, hope with hopo. TROUBLE OX DEPOSIT. Some modern philosopher bas given very good advice to that very largo proportion of the human family who aro always in trouble, real, or imagi nary. "When you find yourself, he says, "in trouble, go out, cut a poio, and go fishing." Thcro is moro com mon senso in tint bit ol advice than in many a ponderous volume on chronic dyspepsia or torpid livers. Tho mind, particularly the active, misy, agrossivo American mind, above all things eiso, needs rest. It you do not yield it this precious boon, it will reuel wun a tearful vengeance. The trophies ot its insurrection will assort themsolves in indigestion, biliousness, paralysis, boart disoase and death. There is a sufficiency of real trouble in the world. without negotiating any loans ot too article. The gonuino is so common, that the counterfeit is unnccssary, and, ollcntimes, It sweeps over and devas tates tbe human heart like fire over tho dry grass of a Western prarie. Time tenths ol all our trou tiles aro imaginary. W hen you march tip to them, with tbe conquoring troad of resolute manhood, they vanish into the air, and disappear like tho mist of the morning beneath tho rays of tbe aun. The banker, tho merchant, and the manufacturer all have tboir troubles, as well as the clerk, the mechanic, and the subordinate. Overshadowing all these, however, as far indoed above them as tbe Cbimborazo Peaks tower above the hills of Uland, are the trou bles of the politician. Aa ho travels through mud, dust, rain,sleotornnow, and bitches his jaded steed at tho post of some friendly farm house, he bor rows trouble as be enters, and some time baa it, without borrowing, when bo comes out. When he "fixes" the occupant he is momentarily happy, and a dark shanuow only tails across bis path to Media, and glory, when, on his return homeward, he finds the horse of a vigorous competitor lor tbe samo office, bitched at the same post, the rider inside, with gentle whisper ings and profuse promises re-fixing his old constitutional friend, who, two honrs before, had promised to' fight, bleed and die for him. Truly, from the stand point of the party ot the first part, bia cup of sor row ia full lo overflowing, and when ho lolls belore the crackling domestic hearth at his tweet borne, due allow ance most be made he ia a bltlo disa greeable ; for has be negotiated a false loan and is paying a heavy interest ou his investment. The man who voluntarily creates trouble deserves all he can carry ; the man who does not create it la a fool for borrowing it. , in our great financial centres, and at our huge corporation boards, cluster myriads ot men who do not compre hend the first principles ol human happiness. They deliberately murder body, soul, and ruputalion, lor imaginary something, which, when they attain does not "till the bill ;" and then they realize that their rostive, nervous, irritable lives have been flat failures. These stueplo ehase lives we Americana lend are demoralizing in the extreme. Tbeir fruits crop out in tbe learful increase of euicido within our borders, and the overcrowded halls of our insane asylums. Lcgiti mate trouble dwarfs our bodies ; and borrowod trouble helps to complete our physical and mental demoraliza tion. t'Arjf(T .fa.) Umcttt.

The first time that 1 began toaneezo, a friend told me to go and bathe my feet in hot water, and go to bed. 1 did ao. Shortly alter, a friend told mo lo got up and tako a cold shower batb. 1 did that also. Within an hour another friend told me it w as policy to food a cold and starve a fever. 1 had both; so 1 thought it bust to till up the cold, and let the fever Btnrvo awhile, in a case of this kind 1 seldom do things by halves ; 1 ate pretty heartily. 1 conlerred my custom upon a stranger who had just opened a restaurant on Courtland street, near tbe hotel, tbat morning, paying him ao much for a full meal. He waited near me in re spectful silence until 1 had finished feeding my cold, whon bo inquired whether people about New York were much afflicted with odids.', J told bim 1 thought ibcy were. He then went out and I took iu bit sign. 1 startod up towaid tho office, and on the wulk en countered another bosom friend, who told mo that a quart of warm salt water would come oa near curing a cold as anything in tbe world. 1 bardly thought 1 bad room for it, but 1 tried it, anyhow, the result was surprising. I believe I threw up my immortal soul. Now, us 1 givo my experience only lor the bcnelit ot those ot my friends who aro troubled with this dis temper, 1 feel that they will see the propriety ot my cautioning tlictn against following such portion ol il as proved inemcienl witb me ; and act ing upon this conviction 1 warn thorn against warm aalt-wator. It may boa good enough remedy, but 1 think it ia rather too sovore. If I had another cold in tbe bead, and there was no courso Jut L mo lo take either an earthquake or warm salt-water, 1 would lake my chances on the earth quake.

Guard, ol Baltimore, in company witb his wifo ami child, was passing over, tho l'biladclphia und Uric Railroad, en routo lo Hamilton, Cumula, where bo had an engagement to preach. Mrs. Guard was tho owner of a very line diamond ring, valued at about tllOO, and in order to please her child had placed it upon her finger. In the meantime the child was eating an or ange, and whilo in the act of throwing tbe peel out of thenar window, a short dislanco abovo Susquehanna, tho ring slipped off her finger und went out also. The train was moving rapidly and there seemed to bo no hope of re covering the last treasure. Tho pa rents wore moie or less excited over their loss, which attracted the atten tion of Mr. Hiram R. Rhoads, who was in tho car. lie at once inquiicd tho cause of tbe trouble and was in formed bow the valuable ring hud been lost. Ah soon ns the train reached Jersey Shore station Mr. Rhode in formed the operator of the loss, and directed him to return to tho place in dicated and make diligent search, lie did as directed, and continued tbo search till six o'clock thut overling without finding the ring, when be re ported tho result to Mr. Rhoads at the oillco in Ibis city, and he at once telegraphed lo Mr. Guard, fit Niagara. The search, however, was kept up by Mr. Rhoads for ten or twelve days, and ovary inch ot tbo ground was carefully examined, but no trace of the treasure could be lonnd, and the search was mially abandoned, lime rolled away. Jlr. tmaru Bpent two years as pastor of a church at Hamilton, when he went to California, where bo re mained about thrco years, pursuing his profession as a minister. His wile still mourned the loss of her valuable ring, and all hopes of recovering it had boen abandoned. Mr. Guard bud, how ever, inlormed Mr. Thompson, general manager, of his loss, who iu turn oom municalcd with tbe General Superin tendent of tho Philadelphia and Krio Uailroad. Ho hud implicit faith in the word itntl honesty ot Mr. Kboads and resented all imputations on his charac ter us a failblul and reliable man, whose word could be implicitly de pended on. As tho years rolled away the circumstance bad almost boon for gotten. Mr. Guard was transferred to the Baltimore Conference again, and is about to take up bis residence In hat city as pastor ot the church at Mount Vernon Place. On Friday night Inst, about 1 1 o'clock, it was ienrned that a valuublo ring had been offered to a jeweler in this city by a luborcr. Inquiries were nt once made, when it was ascertained that tho icwelor had given a watch and chain valued at !ti& lor it. Further investigation resulted in finding tbo man, a Hack man, utSus queiiui.no, who bud offered the ring. lie at once staled the circumstance ol finding a ring about five wecksngo, as he was engaged at his work on the rail road truck, when he at oneo returned to the lewder, handed over the watch and chain, and the ring was returned, and is now in the bands ot the rail road ofllcors. It was found by the side of the track about three hundred feet west of Charles Stewart's farm, above Susquehanna, where it bud lain tor about five years. 1 be owner will be made glad by receiving it In a few days, alter having no doubt, long since ahantloned all hopo of ever recovering it.

IS HIS DOMESTICATION POSSIIII.R ? A LATE EXPERIMENT. The domestication of the common partridge has always excited much in terest among naturalists, and its possi- bility baa been frequently asserted and as ollen denied. Cases trc alleged where they have become partially urn, but ill the course ,nt lime their original instincts asserted themselves and tbey reverted to tho habitt ot the untamed onus. Wo cannot remember a single instance where the experiment bas been tried under tbe most luvora bio conditions, or where it bas gone beyond a single attempt. Tbe expert mentor has generally contented him- self with onoeflorl. and when this was a partial, or, more likely, a total failure, tho impossibility of reclaiming Rob White and his dame bas been loudly proclaimed. We bare alwaya held the partridge is as susceptible of being re claimed from his present condition as any other birds turkeys, geese and ducks for instance. A caso has just come to our notice which more than ever convinces us thi" cun he done. Soveral Summers Ii- ci a r':i...l.. ..r it. T I ago Mr. S. S. Gibble, of Mt. Joy, Lnn caster county, found tho nest of a par tridge, containing fifteen eggs. De termined to make an attempt to do mesticate these birds he look them home and placed them under a ben. lie made bis first mistake at the very outset by putting them under a Brahma to incubate. The size ol the eggs and ot tho ben was of course altogether disproportionate. Still the was fortu nate enough to break none of them, and in due timo a family of fifteen of these altractivo and lively birds made their appearance. A grassy plot was selocted for a nursery, and a pen six teen feet squaro was made. This was made perfectly tight ut the ground and tor some beighlh above it, lender- ing escape impossible, ut least until they acquired the use of tboir wings. But tho mistake of solccting a heavy hen to bring up these birds soon bo- camo manifest. Ono after itnothcr of tho protty things had its life tramped out by tho heuvy feet of its foster-1 mother, until only four of them ro- mnined.

Unfortunately, however, the cold and windy weather of Winter brought a covey of wild birds to tho barn, and these, coming into friendly relations witb tho trio of tame ones, had such a seductive influence upon them that, when the strangers went away when the mild weather of Spring came along, thoy carried witb tbem two out of the three remaining birds. This one continued to cat with tbe lions in the barn-yard and roost with them in tbe trees until the leafy month ol June came, when, no doubt, the promptings of nature ao wrought upon tho com- pumonlcst bird, that it was impelled to leave the hospitable homo whero nearly a year of its life was spent, and seek tbo companionship of its kind in tbo beltla, bo ended Ihe experiment.

The enhject of color blindness, which has attracted a great deal of attention of late, not only Irom physicians but from ruilroud officers, lo whom it has a practical us well as a scientific inter est, is likely to receive fresh illustra tion from tho experiments undertaken by the Pennsylvania Railroad Compa ny. It was to ho expected tbat Ibis great organization the acknowledged model of a well-managed railroad would not neglect to avail itself of the accumulating store of scientific knowl edge upon so important a subject. When it is remembered that the lives of hundreds of passenger may depend upon tho certainly with which an en gineer or fireman can recognize tho signals displayed before him, and fur ther that many persons are known to be incapable of distinguishing one color from another or determining the form of an object at any considerable distnhee Irom their eyes, it Is a fhatter ol wonderment that tbo importance of an optical examination ot tbeir oin plovoa bus not sooner occurred to railroad officers. The Pennsylvania Uailroad Company began sucb an ex amination ot its Eve thousand train hands during the. past week. .

Such aono would be quite capable of hanging out a green lantern when a red one was required. Other eccentricities of th nam kind wer observed, although, as hua been said, most of the men stood the test well. Some faults of v ision can be cor rected by glasses, but there seems to he no euro lor color-blindness, tbongh it ra probable tbat men so afflicted Can be employed in positions in which their color terse will not be called into play.

A Washington correspondent of the Chicago TYwirn injects this piece of in formation into one of his recent letters to that journal: Rut few politicians have an idea how little the general public know nr cure f shout thorn. The writer, the pt j Winter, met numbers ol New York iiciiiihi visiting here, ami the amount j ot ignorance ilispluN ed by them about public men and affairs hits been simply appalling.

In the Senato bo looked placidly around a moment "Whero it our man Conkling?" he asked. "Over in that corner talking witb some of the strikers." "Oh, yes.

A FIXE SERMOX "SMASHED." Of late tho practico of spiritualizing text ol Scripture and giving them a meaning foreign to that intended by tho inspired writer bas been considers bly ou tho increase in certain pulpiti. This stylo of preaching is not always a safe one. Some timo ago, nway out in the country, a very clover young preacher, who had just before gradu ated wilh high honors from ouo of the theological schools, preached a sermon from tho words : "Then, fearing lest they ahould fall upon rocks, they cast four anchors out ot th stern and wish ed for tho day." Said the young preacher: "Tbe dhip represents tho Church. The four anchors are faith, hope, love and prayer. Christians are the crow. The sea represents tho great ocean of lite. ' Tbe storms thai prevailed are the trials to wbieb we are incident here; and tho Island of Mcliu, w here all arc escaped safe to land, means Heaven." Ho dwelt with becoming fervency on the importance of easting out tho anchors, faith, hope, love and prayer; the necessity ot abiding in tho ship in order lo be saved , and ihe con solation to bo found in tbe fact that not a hair of the bead should bo hurt, but that they tbe members of tho Church should all reach tb shore in safely. Tho preacher concluded by asking an aged preacher, whom be bad invited into tho pulpit out of rcsport to bis gray hairs, to close the meeting witb a few remarks. The old brother arose and placed bis hand on lb young theologian's bead, aa if giving hiiu a phrenological examination, and pro ceeded in his plain, uneducated style, substantially as followt : "My young brother,you have preach ed us a mighty party discourse to-day ; but I'm a ieurd yon've mado some aw 1 u I big mistakes. You said that the ship meant tho Church. If thal'l so, -wo haven't got any Church now, for the ship was all smashed to piocea and destroyed. Y oa aleosuid that tne lour Anchors were lailh, hope, love and prayer. It Ibat a ao, we haven I got any faith, bone, love and prayer in the Church, as tbey have been east out. And you aay that Christiana are the orew. If that's so, they are a mighty bloodthirsty set, for they wanted to kill Paul. You tell oa that the Island ol Mclita meant Heaven. Well, if that' true, Heaven must be a mighty snaky place, aa a anake bit Paul as toon as be landed." Il ia staled as a fact that that young preacher has never hero known ty preach that "pnrty" discourse again in that region of country. Lit Girui be Giria One of the crying evils of tho timoa is the tenden cy end disposition of girls to got thro' girlhood hurriedly and gel into woman hood, or rather into young ladyhood, without waiting to enjoy th beaulilul season nt girlhood.
