Democratic nomination from the Balti

to get it, but wept when he rcflecteil
that his motives were iniscoiitsruetl by
his olJ iiienuV. He intimated that he
would write a letter, which is as follows:
NEW YORK, July 20th.

It is holding a dangerous serpent in
our hearts, that grows with what it feeds
upon. It is sinful, tor it-is abiding dis

The Personality of the President.
Itisalway? a difficult matter to con
vey to the individuals composing a large
and widely spread population, clear and
accurate notions of the personality of a
man whom they know only by his sta
tion and official acls. When he happens
io be distinguished as a writer or an or
ator, he impresses himself on the minds
of men and aiding their conceptions
with portraits or occasional glimpses of
his living form, they come to know him
tolerably well. Or if he possesses mark
ed eccentric t es, the popular mind seizes
upon these, though they constitute, Alter
all, no essentail part of any man's real
si length aud but very imperfect revela
tions of character.
General Gjrant is peculiarly deGcient
in iheao respects. lie has never sought
distinction as an author; he persistently
declines to appear as a public speaker.
His career as an army commander,
though, it inspired his troops with confi
dence in his judgement and detirmina
tion, could not arouse that personal c n
thiisiasiu which comes through personal
contact. The general of a great army
must remain to most of his subordinates
an impenetrable and impersonal being.
He is rather General Orders than Gener
al Grant, unless he purposely displays
himself in a se-mi-ihealricnl way, after
ihu fashion of Napoleon. This element
is wanting iu General Grant. As a sol
dier anil as a civil otb'cer, it is his cifttom
to attend to his business with an utter
disregard of incidental "effects."
This is, we think, the reason that, af
ter so many years of public service, Gen.
Grant is still so liitle known to the
masses that nil sorts of accounts can be
freely circulated concerning his person
ality. Those people who judge him from
a distance by ouiwa'd peculiarities alone
do not get beyoud his cigar. If he
would only wear a while hat, or swing
around tho circle, or make himself per
sonally prominent, in some way, how it
would simplify ihe opinions of some
cl isses now pu..led into abject credulity
of manifold slanders, by the mere lack
of tangible data. But being a modest
and quiet gentleman, he does his duty
aud claims a right in his own private life,
while all caricat mists, from Senator
Sumner down, draw pictures ot him ac
cording to their malicious i . In all
truly civilized nations the avoidance of
personal display, manly simplicity, and
directness are highly honored. No
American President was ever so abso
lutely unpretentious, go simple and mod

dence of a man like Judire Hoar, of
Massachusetts, should receive considera
tion. Practically outside of political
strugglA aud ambitions, above all sus
picion of distorting or suppressing th
null) to suit the exigencies ot a political
canvas, and full' qualified by personal
knowledge of tho President to speak
with authority, Judge Hoar declares the
description of Senator Sumner to be re-
diculously wnln ot accuracy, llesavs:
"I desire to testify that durinor the
whole period I sal at the cabinet coun
cils, I never heard any measure of ad
ministration discussed or considered ex
cept with the single reference to the
public good ; aud when I remember the
simple, direct and modest man who sat
at the head of the table there, and take
up Mr. Sumner's speech, I can but think
he is talking about some one else."
Evenwithoul this conclusive contra
diction the stories ot General Grant's
enemies refute one another. ' It is iin-
..'possible that he should bo at once the
dull, ignorant, luiiinerent man they rep
resent, aud the ambitious schemer, de
termined lo overthrow tho liberties of
his country and subject us to a military
despotism. JJeecier't J'apert.

Under Hell Gate.
The work of excavatintr " under Hell
Gate, East River, just above New York
i progressing sal islaclorly, I hern are
ten main tunnels, runninff in a semicir
cular form from tho point just above the

a ue iiMiifeei oi mrite
tunnels U now 230 feet. There are other
intersect ing tunneU . connecting the
whole. They are thirty-four feel deep, and
there is about len feet of rock between the
tunnels and the water.
Tiie ro-k above is supported by solid
stone pillars, which have been left be
tween the tunnels. The excavations are
made by drilling into the rock, and then
blasting with mtro-glyccriue, the broken
rock being removed lo the outside and
the blasting repealed. Thus the work
goes on, and it is proponed to continue it
until all the dangerous rocks on the
eastern side of the gate shall have been
removed, and the channel made wide and
deep enough for the largest ocean steam
ers to pass through. It is thought that
it will require a year and a half more to
complete the work, aud a fjrther ap
propriation will have lo be made by
W h-n all the necessary excavations
shall have been made, and the pillars
supporting the rock above and the rock
ll sell will be boted and charged with
nitro-glycerine, and the same explosive
material'placed in the tunnels. The coffer
dam which now keeps back I ho water
will next be cm, and the water let into
the tunnels. The charges ot nilro-glycer-ine
will then be exploded, and it is calcu
lated that Hie result will be that Hell
Gate will go up in a cloud of water, ami
thaf the rocks can afterward be grappled
and removed. The engineer in charge
of the work is confident of a 'successful
result, and proposes to remain within
three hundred feet of the entrance to I he
tunnels when the final blast is touched
off by electricity. Some of the residents
of Astoria are apprehensive of danger
when that takes place.
" How did that homely women man
age to gei married?" is not unfrequently
remarked ol some good domestic crea
ture whom her husband regards as the
apple ot his eye, and in whose plain face
busies something better then beauty.
Pretty girls who are vain of their charms
are rather prone to make observations of
this kind; and conscious of the tact that
flowers of loveliness are often left to pine
on the stem while weeds of homeliness
go off readily, is uo doubt in many cases
at the bottom of the sneering question.
The truth is, that most men prefer home
liness and amiability to beauty and ca
price. Handsome women aro apt to
over-value them selves, and in wailing
for an immense bid occasionally over
step the market. Their plain sisters,
on the contrary, aware of their personal
deficiencies, generally lay lliemsi Ives out
to produce, an agieeable impression, nnd
in most instances succed. They don't
aspire to enpiure paragons with princely
fortunes, but are willing lo take anything
respectable and love-worthy that "Provi-
diice may throw in their way. The

lo be trifled with a lesson thousands ot
pretty women do learn too late. Mrs.
Hannah Moore, a very excellent and

wrote, recommends every unmarried
sirt'.-r to accept the offer of the first good
sensible Chiistiain lover who falls in her
way. But ladies whose mirror, aided by
I he glamour of vanity, assure litem that
they were born for conquest, pay no
heed to such advice. It is a noteworthy
fact that homely girls generally get bet
ter husbands than fall lo the lot of their
false sistes. Men who are caught merely
by prelty face and figure do uot as a gen
eral lule, amount to much. The prac

Anaconda of Venezuela. Of opidi
ans, the great anaconda serpent is un
questionably the most terrific in charac
ter of all the reptiles on the American
continent. The anaconda ot Venezuela
not unfrequently attains the length ot
twenty, thirty and even foity feet. It
actually swallows animals larger than its
owu body. The throat may be put up
on a stretch to admit a deer or a cow,
and the stomach is sufficiently elastic to
receive the mass. In gorging a tall stag
with an'leis, they stick crosswise at the
angles of the mouth until decomposition
in one direction and prodigious muscular
action iu another separate them from
the skull, aud then the remnants of an
engulfing carca3s slide down fur diges
tion. They only feed occasionally. Af
ter successfully swallowing a crushed
victim they can go seven months or
more without further food. Their skin
is used tor straps when tanned, on ac
count of toughness and durability, in
lhat country. Serpents inspire a feeling

At-obphek- of Nevada. A Neva
da paper, speaking of the rarity ot the
atmosphere ot Virginia City, says:
" Persons arriving troui places near tiie
level of the sea, who are at home rapid
walkers, soon find themselves brought
up with a round turn, and either raise
blood or bleed at the nose. Little, brisk
walking is ever seen iu the city. People
do not seem so active as they really are,
for the reason that they have beeu com
pelled lo adopt a gait which, if not lazy,
is at least rather leisurely. Hot weather
is fell more severely and is much more
debilitating than at the sea level.
Wheu the thermometer marks 80 degrees

is not long since a great London firm
discovered that their watchman had con

ported a short time since from Newark
revealed circumstances scarcely less si.t

course was in league with the robbers,

Greeley's First Lessons In Pipe
La vi.ng. On the authority of a resident
of Hartford, the Caurant tells the fol
lowing story as incorporated in a lecture
to the students at L'nion College by
Prof. Giliespie some years ago: "Mr.
Greeley at one time invited the Professor
lo visit his farm at Cbappnqiia, and told
him he w as about to build a fountain in
trout of bis house, the water for which
was to be supplied from a spring upon a
hill opposite. Mr. Greeley said his plan
was to build an aqueduct across the in
tervening valley, after the manner of the
ancient Romans. He could see no other
way to conduct tho water to the foun
tain. The Professor told him 6tich an
aqueduct would cost 200,000 or i360,
000 about twenty times the cost of the
whole furm but a lead pipe could be
laid under ground, which would answer
every purpose, and cost 1 200 or 300.
He theu explained the principle of the
syphon, wliich is familiar lo every
school-boy, wliich so delighted hi in that
he aclett like a child who had just re
ceived a new toy, nnd with a profusion
of thanks to the Professor, gave direc
tions to lay the pipe."
Did Pail Have a Wife? It was an
early question whether Paul was mar
ried. The passage in the epistle to the
Corinthians, iu which he speaks ot him
self as unencumbered with domestic
cares, does not preclude the notion that
he might have been a widower does
not even provo more than that he went
on his missionary journeys alone. On
the other hand, he speaks of his assent
to the death of Stephen, and his com
mission from the Sanhedrim tunctions
aud powers lhat cculd not well have
been exercised by a man who was not a
member of that council. But we are ex
pressly told that this great assembly of
the Jews included only fathers, to secure
a merciful interpretation of the law. An
early explanation, too, of the "true
ycke-fellow" at the Church to Philippi,
whom hu bids labor to reconcile or as
sist Euodia and Syntyche, recognizes
the wife of the Apostle in the phrase.
The epistle was, it may be said almost
certainly, written from Rome, and du
ring the time of that imprisonment, in
which the perils of the Apostle's situa
tion were aggravated by sorrow, aud
ultimately the desertion of many among
his friends. "Paul of Tarsus" Bj a
Ex Governor Wise, of Virginia, is as
bitterly opposed to Greeley now as be
fore his nomination. In a letter just
made public he says: "cannot and will
not net or vote wiih the so-called Liber
al Republicans. They are too liberal.
They are so 1 oso as to have no princi
ples, aud adopt the worst as .well as the
best, to suit birds of every feather, met
together at both Cincinnati and Balti
more. They have iu strange confusion
mingled white spirits and gray, so that
the party is the worst of mongrels aud
all things to all men." This view seems
to bo rather common among Virginia
Democrats. Last Wednesday evening
Hon. J. Davis, Democratic Congressman
from the Wheeling district, made a pub
lic; speech against Greeley. Ou the same
d.iy a meeting of Demoorats was held iu
Richmond for the alleged purpose of
forming a coalition against Greeley and
to stump the State tor Grant. Every
day disgusted Democrats are breaking
loose from the Liberal movement and
eurolling under the Republican bannor.

Old Zeke Cornbloom Goes For Grant.
I do not know much about farming,
Accordrng to chemical science,
Ami so my potatoes anil Cora
Must take cliHtieo without inch appliance.
I plow deep and plant In rotation,
And raise a heap more than I wsnt,
I sin not ill content with the country,
And not ill-dispoaud toward Grant
I do not know mucii of conventions.
And never made a speech in my life ;
I never went much on s caucus,
Nor mixed in political strife.
But tf I was only a spouter,
Or ef I was much on chant,
I'd holler s stave for the Union,
Aud spe.k good word for old Grant.
I do not know much of finance,
I hate lo be dunned tt a debtor,
And w hen I owe money. I think
The sooner it's paid why the better.
And sence Grant's been Imss of the nation
It's bills hive been reu'larly met ;

And paying the national debt.

Like the wicked flea, when you have
them they aint there. I can cipher clean
over lo improper fractions, and the
teacher says I do it first-rate ; but I cant
cipher out a girl, proper or improper,
and you cant either. The only rule in
arithmetic that hits their case is the
double rule of two They are as full of
Old Nick as their skin can hold, and
they would die if they couldn't torment
somebody. When they try to be mean,
tney are as mean as pusley, though they
aint as mean as they let on, except some
limes, and then they are a good deal
meaner. The only way to get along
with a girl when she comes at you with
her nonsense, is to give her tit for tat,
and that w ill tittmmux her, and when
you get a girl fiummuxed she is as nice
as a new pin. A girl can sow more wild
oats in a day than a boy can sow in a
year, but girls get their wild oats sowed '
after a while, which boys never do, and
then they settle down as calm and placid
as a mud-puddle.
iut I like girls first-rate, and I guess
the boys all do. I dou't care how many
tricks they play ou me and they don't
care either. The boite-toitiest girl in
the world can't always boil over like a
glass of soda. By and by they will get
into the traces with somebody they like,
and pull as steady as any old stage
horse. That is the beauty of tbem. So
let them wave, I say ; they will pay lor
it some day, 6ewing on buttons and try
ing to make a decent man of the feller
they have spliced on to, and ten chancea
to one if they dou't get the worst of it.
Moeal Medicine. There is a moral
medicine more potent than the drug of
an apo'.hecary the power over the sick,
gentleness, kindness and sympathy, on
the part of youth, and beauty and wo
manliness ! And there is a moral poison,
more deadly than arsenic or prussic acid
or nicotine. Many a pining invalid has
been hurried into the grave from the
want of sympathy on the part of those
who should have watched aud loved and
cherished with warmest affection ; hearts
lhat were yearning, even dying for it,for
some little exhibition now and then of
"Don't leave me, my son," were among
tho very last words of Henry Clay, as
the death drops thickly studded his no
ble brow ; it was the instinctive want of
a helping hand in the terrible hour. And
so do we all in sickness pine tor the pres
ence of tho.se nearest and dearest to us,
when even holding the thin, bonv fingers
sends a sympathetic thrill to the Invalid's
bosom. "Crown me with flowers," was
the last aspiration of the dying Miia

It seems that Senator Sumner hat been
misrepresented as being a supporter ot
Greeley. This is not singular, at the .
sorehead movement is mainly based on
misrepresentations. What Mr. Sum per
really did say it this : "The Republican
party must be saved, and what I can do
shall be done tor it." That does not
sound much like sustaining a movement
