From the Chicago Post. Greeley's Acceptance Literally Construed. strue.. Mr." Greeley giatelully accepted the Democratic nomination from the Balti more Convention. He said he was glut! 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. Gentlemen of the Democratic Convention : ll is the happiext moment of my lite whenluci informed ot my nomination to the Presidency by nuch a lot ol thieve;", pimps and blacklegs as you are. As I have frequently remarked, vou hate school Iioumch, and where they are pretty thin you are thick. You are propagated in sinks of iniquity, and begotten in les Uii'ing rum holts; therefore your appro bation ihrilltt my bosom w ith pride. 1 loathe your contaminating presence, as I said before. You till the jails, and Re publicans support them, us I remarked in the Tribunt of last September. s 1 said on January 7, 1668, 'every one who chooses to live by pugilism, or gambling, or harlotry, Willi nearly every keeper ol a lippliut; house, is politically a Demo crat. A purely hellish interest attaches the lewd, lulliuulv. criminal and uiuier. ous clause to the Democratic partv, by the instinct of self-preservation. There- lore my heart throbs with delight at this manifestation of of (Mere his pen fullered with emotion.) Recovering himself, lie proceeded : You have not elided me to anything very otieii. Laughter. It feeins to me a good deal like oiug home. liecause, as I recently said iu the Tribune 'point where vou please to an election district which you will pronounce morally rot ton given up in a great part to debauchery and vice whoxe voters subsist mainly by keeping policy offices, gambling houses, grog shops and dancer uens oi iinaiuy and that, district will be found giving a larue majority for that which styles itself the Democratic parly.' There you see your selves, boys, in a glass. This is a most auspicious moment. I hope Republicans will not doubt my sincerity when 1 oast myself into the embraces ot such a set ot jail birds as you are. Now, then, all together, let us move forward earnestly tor reform. Yours, contemptuously, but devoted HORACE GREELEY, The editress of a West re n journal apologises for the detention of hei paper, " because of the arrival of an extra male." Borrowing Trouble. is uncomfortably true that there is almost m much (listreM of mind eiperi enced in the anticipation h in the real isnlioii of trouble. About half of our unhappy days aro occasioned by our looking forward to the unliappiness of the other half. "Siillicient unto tho day is the evil thereof;" We Heed never take another jot on credit. In borrowing trouble, natural laws aro reversed; mere mole hill of annoyance become mountains when viewed at a distance ahead. Some persons never take actual comfort. Iu tranquil times, the dread of a coming change Is always iu the way ol their en joyment. 1 know of one family lhat was forever expecting to move; consequently neg hcting to make a garden, repair the house, or permanently arrange tho furni ture. At the latest ad vices, this family had lived in the same house eleven years. If we take tbings as they come, we shall usually find that they come much belti r than we have any right to expect. Our anticipatory flags ot distress may have been inviting compassion and fling ing patches ot darkness over inauy a bright scene tor mouths, for us to find at last that we have been guilty of need lessly, we might almost cay ciiminally, robbing ouselves and others of the hap piness rightfully belonging to us and lo thorn. 'Borrowing trouble" is sometimes on ly another name for selfishness; for the one borrowing trouble is seldom satisfied unless all within his or her influence are inteigled into the loom. It is holding a dangerous serpent in our hearts, that grows with what it feeds upon. It is sinful, tor it-is abiding dis trust of God's goodness. 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 est iu his manners, as General Grant. unuer iLese circumstances, the evi 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. The Hearth ami Uome t.iys that Bish op Wbitehouse Was, one Sabbath even ing:, describing to his congregation bow he hail once been lost out on the prairies ol Illinois, and had wandered tor a long tune, weary and almost hopeless. At last he saw a light, and made hit way slowly toward it, shouting for help. "Just as I thought I could go no far ther," said the Bishop, "and was about sinking down in despair, the door of a cabin opened before me, and tLe long looked for Sucker oame." The pun was uuiutentional, but the effect oo a West ern audience wu inevitable. 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 lm,rll,,r t AtA... pPt... I .. .1 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 Congress. 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. Homely Girls. " 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 rock ahead ot youJunos aud coquetish Hebes is fastidiousness. Th-y reject, and reject, until nobody cares to woo them. Men don't like lb be snubbed or lo be trifled with a lesson thousands ot pretty women do learn too late. Mrs. Hannah Moore, a very excellent and pious women, who knew whereof she 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 tical useful, thoughtful portion ot man kind is wisely content with unpretending excellency. 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 Lot' horror, large or small there is an iu- sliiietivti dread ot them in all human be ings. Aud yet they fulfill an important mission iu the economy of life, indispen sible. viewed by the laws of equaliza tion or checks aud balances iu the do main of nature. 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 iu this elevated region, the air is of much lest value than it is at the tea level under the Mine heat Pigeons that fly very strongly in California are almost like un fledged birda when brought here." Watching Watchmen. jMias Fox. sister of Macanlev't friend Lord Holland, lived toward the close of her life at a suburban abode called "Little Holland House." Nervous as lo burir- lars, in what was then a very burglarious neighborhood, tho employed a private watchman to guard her. It was part ol this functionary's duly to tire off a gun at a certain period of the evening, to prove that hu was " all there." aud to imprest the burglariously disposed with a proper sense of their danger. " When 1 bear this gun, the old lady used to say, "I know that I may go to sleep in safety." It was currently believed thai the watchman regarded this incident iu the night as the Mgnal for the com mencement of his ow n slumbers also. It is not long since a great London firm discovered that their watchman had con ceived and executed a most cunning sys tem of robbing them, and a robbery re ported a short time since from Newark revealed circumstances scarcely less si.t islaclorv. A jewelry store was broken open and five thousand dollars in gold taken before the arrival of the private watchman. It appeared that this func tionary was due at his post long bed re the shop closed at eight but, having met with a charmer in the shape ot a young lady with whom he had no pre vious acquaintance, this siren, who, of course was in league with the robbers, so beguiled Cerlwrus that he dallied with her until the robbery had beeu success fully accomplished. Still more lately, we have the case ot Messrs. Phelps, Dodge & Co.'s porter accommodating .Hessrs .Nelson with every possible facili ly of access to his employers' offices, Where is absolute security lor valuables to be fonnd? How to watch watchmen is a difficulty which remains' lo be solv ed. Applcton's Journal. 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 Graduate. 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. Woman's Rights. President Grant recently stated iu conversation lhat wo men as postmasters had proved efficient, trustworthy and valuable officers of the government ; that lie entirely approved of employing them at all times and in all places where it could be done. Hence, tin has not only given four of the best paying offices in tho couutry to women, against the earnest protest of politicians, but he has at all timet urged upon the heads of department! the ap pointment of women and the justice of paying mem ine saitto salaries voai are paid to meu lor doing the-tame work.

An Idaho woman was orderd by a physician to take three ounoet of brandy a day, and knowing lhat sixteen drachma make an ounoe, haa patiently been taking torty-eigbt driokt a day ever eiooe. 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 ; lie's lii;!ileiiiii the lond of taxation And paying the national debt. I do not know much shout fltliin' My notions dont llmt way incline; Hut when it comes tWiwn to s fccrimmage, He never was beat on that line. When treason was Ibrenlcnin' to swamp us, ' 'Twas he pave lUe thing lis death blow 5 And as he brought us through the danger, I aint going back on him now. I do not pretend to know much About "Tariffs," and 'balance of trade," But business is jrener'ly lively, And pretty lair profits is made; And in spile of the growling of soreheads, "Civil Service ltetnrm," and such rant, I'm well satisfied w ith the country. And, by thunder, I'm point; for Grant Girls—by a Boy. are the most unac;ountabIest things in the world except women. 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 loving tenderness. "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 beflii. Tho atrocious Danton, the Mirabeau of the rabble, shortly before his execu tion, spoke incessantly ot flowers, as if the memory of ihem was beautiful and happilying. Dr. W. W. Hall. At the late meeting ot the Presbytery, when the subject ot scripture was under discussion, Brother W said early in hit 1 ministry he and another brother were conducting a meeting in which there waa much religious interest. An old man gave expression to his joy by shouting, and continued it until it began to inter rupt the services, Brother II said to Brother W , " Go, stop that old raan't noise." Hu went to bira and spoke a tew words, and the sliou'ing man at once became quiet. Brot her II asked Broth er W , " What did you say to the old man lhat quieted him so promptly ?" Brother W replied," I aekea him for a dollar forforthjn miseioru? " Porapey, can you tell me in what building people are most likely to catch cold?" "Why, no: me stranger in de town and can't tell dak" ."Well, I will tell yon ; it is the bank." "How is dat 1" " Because there is to many drafts in it." " Dat is good ; but cau you tell me what makes so many drafts in it Y "No." " Because to many go dere to raise the wind." 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 whioh is directly aimed at the orertbtoy of the Republican party, .
