The hrst to give tongue to this new doctrine was Kev. Th.-odore Tilton, the co adjutor of Kev.

The mothers and daughters of the slave-holding aristocracy are thrilled with a strange delight by daily contact with their dusky male servitors.

'there are wants in his nature which only toe tiegYi.' can fill. It is a mean pride, unworthy a christian cowuiuuity, that would lead any one to den this.

"Wen the ideas of this' fanatic," comments the Times, "confined to himself they might excite onlv disgust and contempt and laugh ter; but when these same ideas are promul gated, perhaps in mislcratcd and more guard ed language by Mr. Phillips or Mr. Tilton, thev elicit the approval of crowded audiences of educated Americans, of whom a large preponderance are white women, the mad nesa of the hour in thia distracted country receives a new but nnfragrant illustration. If this be done in the greenleaf what shall be done in the dry?" We see what is done in the dry. The escapade of Miss Chase, the Epis copal minister's daughter, is the inevitable fate of snch teachings. Even now. Wendell Phillips never misses a chain to proclaim the superiority of the negro race over the south, rn whites over such men as Lee and Stonewall Jackson, Iavi and Lamar, etc. Not long ago, Phillips wrote au article, which appeared in the Xurth American Re tirir, taking that ground. Nor is this all. Immediately afterthe close of the war Chief Justice S. P.Chaae.oneof the high dignitaries of the north, made a trip of observation over the southern States lying on the Atlantic. )n liia return the northern papers were lull of Chase's opinion of southern people and their condition. Chase staled that the whites Were a worn and effete race, lacking energy and vigor of mind and body; that the blacks were full of fire, intelligence and energy. He predicted that within twenty-five years the negroea would la; at the forefront in all things; would lead in literature, science, the arts, and hold the reins of government, anil !1 Yankecdom said "Amen" to that wise judicial decision of Chief-Justice Salmon P. Chase. About the same time, or a year or so after, Miss Anna Dickinson wrote a novel called, What AnWrt which, by the by, as a work of art is beneath criticism, aud is only noticeable for the unnatural doctrine of mis cegenation that it tench'., and the perverted taste it displays. The only end anil aim of What Amnrerf was to inculcate the beauty and loveliness of marriages between whites and blacks. One of Mia Annie's pet hero ines marries a negro, and her pet hero is a negro who marries a white woman, and Miss Dickinion wantoto know what answer can be made to such doctrines? hence the title of the book. So far as I could Bee, and I read a good many northern paers, no writer or speaker has ever seen proper to condemn these doctrines or to call in question their wisdom. I have never seen or heard ot any adverse criticism ot Muss Anna Dickinson's What Antserf and every one re members with what jubilant glee, under big headiugs, the northern papers published Chief-Justice Salmon J', ('base's opinion of the natural sueriority of negnx's over the southern whites. After au long encouraging the teachers of miscegenation, after such loud and repeated plaudit- d Beecher, Tilton, Phillips, Dickinson, Chase, and a host of others who preach that doctrine, where is the sense of setting up a hue aud cry against the unfortunate girl who has only proved herself your apt pupil? Yes, gentlemen of the north, voll cannot now consistpm 1 v ihm..- yourselves into spasms of chaste indignation because Miss Chase, the Episcopal minister's daughter, has acivpted your theories, and sought to elevate herself bv marrying a flat- nosed negro. You have set that negro iipJ above all the white women ot America; you have made him their political master, and endowed liira with the jowor to make laws for their govermucnti you have never missed a chance to proclaim to the wul'lil thc high estimate you place on the negro mau's intel lect and intelligence, and as systematically have iuuijht every opportunity to underrate and belittle the intellect and intelligence of women. Your folly U only rivaled by your inconsistency. K. t. MKBIWHTIIKB. A CH1KGE AHAI.VST CONKUXO. Tin- See. at Wi.

J have tried for months to find out what he meant, and with only partial success. The gentle journalist's kindly heart seemed to hold hiin back from doing injury to any man, but he linalh told me that, during the war, Marshul Lafayette S.

THE PEACEFUL Revolutions that Have Marked the llnwn of New Eras in the History of Onr Country How they were Brought About The Part the People Plav in Tin-ii i. We are on the Eve of Another Made Necessary by the Corruptions of the Republican Party These Move ments Insure the Safety of Popular (ioernment. By Aleck M'Clure: During a period of ninety-two years, since the inauguration of Wa-hin'ton as first President of the (failed Btataa, the people have changed the political character of their government not less than eight times, or nearly once in every decade. These are the peaceful revolutions of a free people, reversing their rulers and their political control, as abuse of power or neglect of its opiortunities impress the considerate judgment of the nation with the necessity of change. These revolution spring from the money or sjicculative centers of the country. On the contrary, as a rule, they have been made in utter disregard of the views and in terests of those who simply gather profit from the wealth of the producing classes; and then are countless unfulfilled prophecies of con vulsion and disaster to be found in the history of every peaceful revolution the people have wrought for themselves. The first peaceful revolution came in 1800, when the elder Adams was overthrown by Jefferson, and when the whole Federal theory of popular government was overthrown with its representative. It was greatly regretted, even by Washington, for he shared Hamil ton's views in favor of strong and somewhat aristocratic political power, and it was de nounced by all the old Washington or Feder al leaders as the end of prosperous commerce and trade, and the advent of uncertainty with its many embarrassments. It was one of the most desperate conflicts of our history, aud party passion ran as high as it has ever been shown since, between the strong-government Federalists and the Democratic Jeft'ersouians; but Jefferson was elected; the government was liberalized; Louisiana, then embracing the whole northwest beyond the Mississippi river, was added to our territory, business prospered as never before, an.j the wisdom of the peaceful revolution was fully vindicated. Indeed, so prosjierotis did the countrv be come under the biltcrlv denounced Demo cratic policy I then called Republican) found ed by Jefferson, that there was no change in the political administration for twenty-four years. Madison followed Jefferson; Monroe, another disciple of Jefferson, brought the era of good feeing in 1820, when he was re-elected without a conte t. In UM John Quincy Adams was chosen President, and it was made a political revolu tion rather by the enemies of the new execu tive than by his friends. Adams was not a partisan in the modern acceptation of the term, and he refused to accept the doctrine that to the victors belong the spoils; but he was a minority President; he had succeeded with a less popular vote than that given to Jackson; he had few elements of a political leader, aud he was easily overthrown bv the Jackaon tide in 1828. Then, as in 1800,'husi ncss was apjH?aled to by the Adams men; money circles shuddered at the coming of the imperious semi-barbarian from the south west, as Jackson was called by his foes; val. ties declined, and unrest pervaded all busi ness channels; but the people wanted Jack son; they elected and re-elected him. He throttled and destroyed the United States bank, throwing a cloud of despair over the money Mf'gs and speculators of that day; but business soon found itself on a safer, foundation than before, and, after a term of eight years, Jackson was so strong In the affection of the country that he named aud elected his successor. In 1810 the people bad grown weary of the Van I'uren fux in the Jackson lion-skin, and one of the depressions jn industry and trade whicli come periodically to all peoples and !)n. der all administrations had created distress and disgust throughout the land. Harrison was elected by a political hurricane, although the Van Ruren officeholders and supporters had desperately, but vainly, threatened the coun try with convulsion in all channels of busi ness if the Whig aristocrats should succeed to power. It was to meet this silly invention of the officeholders that made the Whigs pre sent General Harrison as the log-cabin can didate, who drank his kurtf cirler like other common men, and, after the revolution had started manv doubtless ,:voted through their eyes," as fog cabins were paraded in every city, village and cross-road. The people went on with their peaceful revolution; Har rison died after a month's occupation of the executive chair, and Tyler made the country ripe for another revolution bv his foolish conflict with uis art'' friends in congress. In 1844 revolution came cgVn, jnd. as ever before, in defiance of the most earnest and general protests of money and commerce. No candidate for the Presidency was ever more generally supported by the capital of the country than was Clay, and the lii Of if j o! bulk was proclaimed as certain to stagnate industry, destroy credit and convulse the whole business intereste of the country; but Polk was elected; capital and industry pros pcrcdjCaliiutuia, Hi'eyada, l:tah. New Mexico and Arizona were added to OW u.i.u;.iy, a I the country enjoyed uninterrupted prosperity. But the policy of the Polk administration was not acceptable to the intelligent judg ment ui ;!;e nation. The Mexican war was regarded as a wantuu uSjwrlj&tion of execu tive authority and as waged for slave terri tory, and 1848 brought another peaceful revoluiiou 'be Government. The old cry came up then, as ever before, t)at a change of political power would un-ejtle business, but the jieople went on in their own way, elected (jenerai Taylor, and business, as usual, discovered that its only danger was in the heated imaginations orstudied falsehoods, of officeholders ud politicians. The death of Rresjrjent fay his and tbc des perate sectional struggle (bat followed under the Fillmore administration created profound, unrest among the people, and they made mi. other peaceful revolution by the election of Pie-"e over Scott in 18o2. Then commerce and 'finance io. cne harmonized with the people, as the compromise iueuC3 to which the Democracy were committed were regarded a a fountain of peace, and the revolution disappciitwd bofh. Instead of preserving the tranquility of the republic, ll;e Missouri com promise was wantpulv repealed, the anti slavery sentiment of the north was aroused, and the solid south, united with the business interests of the uorlu to elect ihe conserva tive statesFuau, James jiuxhiMan, lo ie.-a.or,. peace. But ilujdiaiiau, like Rieice,' gave causeless discord by the Kansas struggle; the Dred Scott decision committed the nation t, the law that made slavery national; Kansas was ruled by the ruffian, and the people worked out the most memorable of all their peaceful revoiuiions, It was stoutly opposed by tinaru.c. commerce and business gcbcnilK . If was deemed disreputable in business . in. lea of iu I'hiladelphi.: to lie a Republican, and it was iioondcnlly pre; dieted oy Democratic officeholders and ora tors that there would lie desolation in our marts of commerce, and that grass would grow iu ffft streets if the revolutionary Re publicans succeeded to power; but the people believed in the necessity of a change; they bciie.'ed more in freedom and in the puritv of administration hqn in the apprehensions of money and peculation, and they elected .Mr. MjwHlj pre-rd. nl. How wise and patriotic the people have been in their peat-etui revpluliofis cap be easily learned at a glance over the jiuii.-. ol their work. The last and lioldcstwas that of I8o0, and com mcrca and business stood aghast atije national judgment ; but the people nave always been their own government, and they followed their decieii. iljro'.igh the tempest of battle, and made the country create,, grander and richer in the progress of a decade than any jeyjpus quarter of a cen tury had marked. Since that ierol."t'n ii,. , have had civil war; a Jiood tide ol plitir) and business de gencracv; an impeached j'resident; a lerrible financial revulsion and a season of excenfjonjtl lawlessness to mingle with their tranquility and thiff ; but the courage, in-du-try. the resources aid the tidelity of the peoplti hsyo made law supreme, and seftfed thenusinesa lutenvo, ..( t he nation, regard less of partisan revolutionists and dema gogues; so that whether liepublican or Dem ocrat shall rule, the country will advance in prosperity.

Louisville Courier-Journal, Monday: Last evening about 8 o'clock a mysterious vonng woman, heavily veiled and accompanied by an elderly personage who might nave been her mother, enterea the Astor house on Jef ferson street, between Sixth and Seventh. The first .mentioned, who seemed to be tiie spokesman of the partv, walked up to the counter, behind which the clerk was standing, and asked to lie shown Lou Youngs room. The name was nronounced with peculiar emphasis, the significance of which could not be mistaken, and a stronger gleam Hashed from her large black eyes. Lou Young ia Die name of a woman who was br .tight to the Astor house a few days ago bv a Joe Shad, who is paying iier board. When the woman came to the hotel she was accompa nied bv a larcre bouncinc bahv taiv. whom it seemed she had adopted. Lou Young has been a sporting woman of this town for some years, and is pretty well known in the sfrofa from which she was lifted. The babv which she adopted had been PI.ACED IS A FOCXDLUfO nosriTAi. in this city by the mother who had, up to the time of giving birth to the child, been con sidered resectable and bore a good reputa tion. The apiiearanee of the girl's crime was smothered as best it could, and the illegiti mate child was put away. It seems that Lou Young had, through some channels, heard of the appearance of the child and its subse quent disposal, and had gone to the hospital, whither tjie ciild had beeu sent, The little fellow was such a beauty, and laughed and en,.. .1 so innocently, that it found a soft spot in the calloused heart of the woman, Her affection for the child increased at every visit, until finally she took it as her own, and had continued in its possession undisturbed until last night, when its mother put in an appear ance. The young woman described in the foregoing as entering the hotel and asking for Lou Young is none other than the mother of the idiild wjich the latter had adopted. This fact was established by the occurrence which followed the meeting between the two. On being ushered to the apartments of Lou Young, the youthful mother rushed in 4ND SNATCHED T1JE CHII.D from ita adopted milter 9 she quld liaye done from a viper. The latter screamed. '-t:s my child !" and caught hold of the child's limbs. The tusr of war then beean. and a violent struggle, which was mingled with the frightened tones of a baby's wail and the angry words of excited women, began, hach woman kept crying that it was her child. 5Jeithr would give up. The child was in imminent danaerof beinir pulled apart, when Harry Thornton, the clerk, hearing the fuss, ran up and released he child from the wor men's tight grasp, e pltu-ed the little inno cent on the bed. and immediately tfle pbjhV's mother snatohed it and rap down stairs and out with it. The god-mother gave up the fight In despair, and, Instead of following the child, gave vent to her disappointment and torn affections by A EXHIBITION OF TIIE WILDEST GRIEF. A reporter of the Ouuricr-JiMrnal called at the place for an interview with Lou Young, but the woman was suffering so much from hysteria, aud the proprietress of the hotel was so determined to have the thitu? suppressed, hat be was refused permission. The clerk, too hipl been' put under tpstrluT nous aim hduhi not -:i a woru, out niece 13 alwavs a way for a reporter, when he hears of an occurrence, to cet hold of facts, the wilp?t of those concerned to the contrary Kqlwitbstandijig. Mrs. Young is the name of the proprietress of tl,e hotel bui'sue i not related to the other woman, though their names are the same. DOST M il T1IK OATE.

Captain John Cadman, in Harper: Jr. yVaytandj in bis life of ,udson 0o misajqip ary'to Purtiialj), has but feebly portrayed the scene ot Mrs. JuJ.-oys 'funeral". f)ur decks yere crowded by sailors of all nations, and every flag was at half-mast, while a long line of boats took oars in tow, and ou aw ival at the wharf the clergy of every denomination formed the head of the procession, which moved through the main street, while all the shops were closed. My recollections of Ir. Judson are of the mos't agreeable kiml. Ijeenlj afflicted, as he was by his loss lie still maintained' .. JbeerV ful demeanor, impressing all of us with love and veneration lor his character. Ilis life was a constant sermon. But scenes like that of the death and fu neral they had lately witnessed prepared the minds of the crew for the access of supersti tion. Soon after leaving St. Helena, the sec ond mate called me suddenly in the night. The poor fellow's tone evinced that he was as much frightened as were the sailors, who, he aid, had seeu a ghost. Well, as I had never eeeft a ghost, I com plied with hla request, aud walking ) : ..e waist, w here the watch were gathered Inntii- pefied amazement, they ixunted their trem oling fingers to the foretop, whispering in hushed voices, "There she is, sir look at her," "A ghost, Mr. Branson?'' I asked. "What kind of n ghost??' ' "Mrs. Judson's sir; we can all sec it in the ioretop." "Pshaw'-' "Captain, do ionic 011 deck, do, and you will see it for yourself," replied Mr. Bran son. Yes, there she was a perfect figure of a woman in a white dress, with outstretched arms and a ghastly face. I will confess that no little astonishment was combined with my incredulity- I bad beep awakened f'rpm a sound sleep to behold this visitation with half-opened eyes. But in a moment I saw the cause of the singular deception. "Boys," I said, "who will go with me into the ioretop and seak to her?" There were brave men among the crew, who fe'OIlJd have gone aloft on my order to send down a 10v.1l vad, even j Jhev thouirht . 1 . ,iti5.- ' . ij . .. .... - tne niasi migui go over iiie sine, out now none of them would stir. At last 1 said: "! you think it is my place to go up there aud stow that top gallant studding-sail'.'" Then they understood the meaning of the apparition. This sail, Inch, when not iu ii. - as isshed against the foretopmast rig ging, had 'got adriu, and, preadipg itself across to the foremost head, had assumed 'the weird and unearthly appearance of a ghost. 0 tl:ts ptitzle ft,: metaphysicians was solved. liad I sent 1 i.c men below and gone up and stowed the sail myself, as I was tcniptc.1 to do, no argument would ever have convinced them that they had uot teen the ghost of Mrs. Judsou.

New- Orleans l'iratir.ir: "How arc the con victs treated?" asked a reporter yesterday of a man who had pist returned trom serving a sentence of six months g (he State peniten tiary. "The camp where 1 was," answered the ex- convict, "was a perfect hell. The men are treated more like beasts than human beings, and are beaten and shot like dogs." "In response to a request that he should narrate what occurred during his term in the penitentiary, he said: "I went up on the thirteenth of March, and reached Boston bouge on the fourteenth. On the sixteenth was sent up to Tensas parish to work on the levees with about 130 other con victs, uuder charge of Captain Ilusted. Xorris Wallace is his lieutenant. The day after I got to Hard Times I went to work carrying planks. A few days after ward we left for a place at Point Pleasant. Charlie Speed, the partner of John Foster, who was sentenced to ten years forgery, tried to escape, and was shot while in the water and killed. Foster was pardoned. Louis O'Grady, who killed Paddy Jones on Royal street, is terribly treated. The guards once a day drove us down like cattle to a pond, where we were given five minutes to wash. I saw that O'Orady's whole body was covered with scars from lashes ami blows. One day, as the keepers were driving the convicts along the levee, O'iirady put down hi wheelbarrow and suid he could not go any further. Lieutenant Wallace then came up and struck him on the back of the head with his revolver, until the blood rushed from O'Grady's mouth and nose. As long as a mitn'keeps his health he does pretty well; but as soon as his health breaks he is gone. The kceers try to kill him. - Suppose a man gets sick." He tells the cap tain or the lieutenant that he is sick and can't work. They say: "Well, go to work. Work until you drop. Your bodv is worth some thing, any how. It will do to fill up the levee." There is at the camp an old mulatto named Sandford Miles, who was sent to the peniten tiary for five years for attempt to kill, or some such offense. While he was working on a plantation he got his right hip dislocated. Hince last summer they let him stav in the hospital. But when he came to Hard Times Captain Hosted took it into bis head to make him work. We had to walk three or four miles every day from the camp to the place where we worked. Miles could not keep up, and one of the guards beat him with a strap until he, Wis full of sores. Miles thought he would rather die than suffer anv longer, so he jumped from a bridge fifty or sixty feet high, hoping to kill himself. "lie was" not killed, however, and the guards captured him, and he is now in the hospital. Some of the men who can't stand the work are dying by inches. There is (jeorge Ifart, Bebe Lacoite, who are perfect skeletons; John Patterson, a healthy man ahotit twentv livc years old, viho went up for two years for petty litreeny, died from ill-treatment. Ben Berkery was killed some time ago. He came up with the la d batch of convicts, in August, I think. He had been sentenced to ten years hard labor for forgery, but the sentence was commuted to one year. He was put to work to clear land on Judge Cordcll's plantation on a Thursday. Mo iday he asked Lieutenant Wallace if he conUT stop work for ten minutes as he was broken -down, Wallace said he would get the strap if lie did. Berkery said it did not matter as he would djc anyway. He tried to run and a guard snapped his gun at bin). He was captured; and got fifty lashes. They put a chaiii on him and made him work. On Tuesday Berkery asked Wallace again if he could rest. Wallace said he would be killed if he did. "You will have to do it, then;' in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost, amen !" cried Berkery, and he ran a"bout fif teen yards and fell dead, his bodv I. ung r'ul dhsd with buckshot from the guu of one of the guards. The ex-convict said these were isjme eiam ple3 of the way oonvicts were treated. They were compelled to work from sunrise to sun set. Their food was suflioient in quantity, but such things as knives, forks and spoons were unknown. The narrator said the work was of a most laborious kind, and that sometimes ihe men were up to their knees iu mud. He pointed out the sores on his leg, caused by this kind of labor. The system, he thought, was calculated to make desperate criminals of the best-inclined men, as they were cast among thieves, murderers and utterly corrupt felons, and those who desired to could not escape the evil initueiie.es of their surroundings. oin . Logan 011 Ouidn. London letter to the Philadelphia 2'tW: Oiiida has been in town, at the I a.ngham ho tel and her- sol ipiioiu have called upon Mr. Laooucitere, oi the Truth, to demand a re traction of the statement he allowed to be printed to the effect that the celebrated nov elist was in her forties, had yellow hair and dressed in odd 1adc. If tliis statement le "Hat burglary," it must lie so, onlv bv that singular legal stqibbk which has it 'that "the greajer the truth, the greater jkc libel." So, loo, is Mr. Laboucherc statement that lUm is "a nasty book." Most nasty is not a whit too strong to express the moral disgtistingness of those moths. I always disliked iuseet moths troublesome things, fretting one's Hftrmentji, gettjii-; their wings scorched but fptruau oues re worse, it appears. J was sur prised this summer during mv visit to Amer ica to see young girls rending M;lhs, and others of Ouida's recent novels. Bv QawHA mothers On ida's writings have long been placed In an index expurgatorins, and for an unmarried girl here to be seen reading Ouida wohkl be thought to indicate a looseness in the matter of parental rearing whicli, not only elderly people, but young marriageable men would disapprove. Whatever their lit erary merit, there is but one mot iV onire for detent young girls concerning the perusal of uida, Zohrand Belot: C -.4 .. How a Xobic Lord was Nnnbbed. "Hip; first night of the production of that dramatic gem, The Afrjjft hollar, in London, there was a disturbance in the front of the house that came near being serious. We grieve to hear that a number of the younger members of the house of commons vvet-e re sponsible for this, and that their conduct was not inspired bv indignation at the caricature of brother legislators on this side of the sea, but by something more stimulating. They were led, one journal says, by "a noble lord whose principal occupation would be gone witlj his moustache." Qn the same authority we learn that "these embryo Pitts continued to interrupt and annoy by their valuable remarks as to "the per formauce and appearance of Kate Xelly, Baby and Connie, interspersing their comments with hursts of ill-timed laughter. Afterward there ensued a supplementary discussion in the lobby. It appears that a certain well-known dramatic critic, who is physically a very powerful man, hissed em phatically when the lively young lawmakers were annoying the audience, and that the uofclf lord tdre-d ivicKed lu deemed U proper to set this matter right between the acta in the vestibule. The somewhat literal account of the Loudon World of the scene that followed runs thus: TheN. L. asked the D. C. who the he was; and was answered, -'lx.k. you , every one here knows Who I am, and 'thev can soon he made to know.whayoaate: for It you do not coininc your 'organized opposition' to the house of commons and vour lioeaifed impertinence to v.tur lietters in that lioim-'I shall taku the llbertv.'to use the hm gnatje of the Hon. PanlwaU .Slote. of p. y. 11 of pulling your noae.' Eit N. L. and followers in search of cooler air and a cigarrette . We hope that the "N". L." and his indis creet oompsnions will not get 'Ifresh" again in a hurfv; and that if they do they will avoid making themselves ridiculous in the house of commons contemptible by playing the Joql iu the auditorv of a crowded the ater,. Ho ma nee or a Ron oat. The Toronto correspondent of the London .ldtvriarr writes as follows: When the gale ls?gan on the lake some days ago, among the othervesscls that ran into Toronto harbor for shelter was a small sailboat, with a short mast and au awiting in her stern. The onlv oceupaula oi the craft were a young man and woman, and their behavior was mysterious in the extreme. The young woman never left the boat, and her partner seldom came ashore, and only then to purchase such arti cles as he thought might be necessarv for their life on the wjiter. The sailors on board ot the schooner mma Graver, which lay close to them, watched them attentively, anil 1 .One to the conclusion that they were a run away count. They canie to this conclusion for tj?T isH Teiaons, among theai U-ing that It:: - were extremely anxious to avoid public ity, unused to give the name of the place where fccramc from and their destination, and won; than that, had nothing with them cus tomary to be brought along on a trip on the lake. " The girl was well dressed, and when her partnerwas away could frequently beseen crying. She was a tall, thin girl, with brown hair and even, decidedly good-looking. She was dressed in a gray cloth suit, and wore a watch and chain. The man was not so tall as she, nor so well dressed. He was corpu lent and rather vulgar looking, aud but very few signs of endearment passed between them. He was verv anxious to get out in the lake again, aud frequently got on board the I 'm in, 1 Graver to inquire if it would be sure to go out. From what the sailors could learn, thev supposed the couple had come from the di rection of Grimsbyj as he sometimes talked of the camp-meeting at that place. They were not brother and sister, as there was no resemblance between them. Whatever put it into their heads to elope hy means of a sail boat passes all understanding, but it will suc cessfully cut all clue to their whereabouts. Thoyjprobably came to Grimsby to the camp meeting, and there hired a sailboat and started. They left Toronto harlior this morn ing, going cast. II AM Ot US VETERA.. Jilts. DO. O. H. MITrEI.I..

The passions which act most severe on the physical life are anger, fear, hatred and grief. The other passions are comparatively innocu ous. What is called the passion of love is not injurious until it lapses into grief and anxiety; on the contrary, it sustains the phys ical imwer. What Is called ambition is of it self harmless, for ambition, when it exists, purelv, is a nobility lifting its owner entirely from himself into the exafied service of man kind. It injures when it is debased by its meaner ally, pride, or when, stimulating a man to too strenuous efforts after some great ob ject, it leads him- to the performance of ex cessive meutal or physical labor and to the consequences that follow such effort. The passion called avarice, according to my ex perience, tends rather to the preservation of the lxidy than to its deterioration. The ava ricious man, who seems to the luxurious world to be debarring himself of all the pleasures of the world, and even to lie exposing him self to the fangs of poverty, is general lr placing himself in the precise condition- favorable to a long and health exist ence. By this economy ne is saving himself from all the worry incident to penury, by his caution he is screening himself from all the risks incident to speculation or the attempt to Mass wealth by hazardous means; by the regularity of hours and perfect appropriation of the sunlight, in preference to illumination, he rests and works in periods that precisely accord with the periodicity of nature; by his abstemiousness in living he takes just enough to live, which is precisely the right thing to do according to the rigid natural law. Thus in almost every particular, he goes on bis way freer than anv other men from the external causes of all t tie induced diseases, and better protected than most men from the worst con sequences of those diseases which spring from causes that are uncontrollable.
