No Warm Weather At All in the Year lean ana European data represent it as having been phenomenal in almost. every particular. In New England the year went by the name of eighteen -hundred and- j starve to-death, and the summer months are known in history as "the cold summer of 1810," so remarkable was the temperature. Ke sun's rays seemed to he destitute at, and ali nature waß clad in a hue. Men and women were tened and imagined that the fire in the sun was being rapidly extin-, guished, and that the world would soon come to end. Ministers took the phenomena for the text of their sermons, and p.-eudo scientitie men talked of things they know not of, while the fanatics took advantage of the occasion to form re ligious organizations. The winter of 1815-15 was very cold in Europe, but comparatively mild in this country, and did not in any way indicate the severe weather that soon prevailed. Even the almanacs were silent, and although the usual indications "about now look out for cold weather," or "this is a good time for snow," were lered in the regular portions of the ks devoted to the winter predic ts, those used for chronicling the isanter months had no such alarm warnings, anuary was mild, so much so that for days the people allowed their lires Rout, as artificial heart made the ngs uncomfortably warm. This ,ut weather was broken by a : cold snap in February, but this imperature passed in a few days, warmer condition, similar to the month previous, set in. March "came in like a lion, but went out like a lamb." There was nothing Mual in the climatic conditions of lonth which differed from those generally found in this windy season, April was the advance guard of this strange freak of temperature. The early days were warm and bright, but as the month drew to a close the cold increased until it ended in ice and snow and a very low temperature. To those who delighted in balmy May days and loved to watch the bud ding flowers, the May of 181G was a bitter disappointment. True, buds came, but so did the frost, and in one night laid all vegetation a blackened waste. Corn was killed, and the fields had to be made ready for another planting, but the people's astonishment was complete when they found ice formed to the thickness of half an inch in the June, 'the month of roses," was this year a month of ice and desola tion. The "oldest inhabitant was sur prised, for never before bad the ther mometer sunk so low in the tube in these latitudes in the last month of spring. Frost, ice and snow were common Almost every green thing that had K advantage of a few warm days r elop was killed, and various of fruit were nearly all dcs One day the beautiful snow fell to a lof ten inches in Vermont, seven in Maine and three inches in cbusetts and Central New York.

But never mind, I will defeat you all t" ' In 1868 she nearly succeeded in get ting the Democratic National conven tion to carry out her wishes. It was in session in Tammany Hall, Naw York ' city, and she kept in communication with it by messengers, waiting anx- j iously for the moment when it was be lieved her father would carry all by storm. On the fourth day the moment seemed to have arrived, and her heart i leaped with joy. But the expected i stampede did not come, and the impa tient daughter was almost moved to go herself to Tammany Hall. Indeed, there were afterward some politicians who observed that it she could have gone among the delegates on the floor, she might have been able at the crucial point to have swung the convention to the Chief Justice.

Should the Constitutional Conven tion so determine, it can adopt a new Constitution, take a recess, submit it to the voters, and if it fails of ratliica tiou before the people, the convention can re assemble, amend the Constitu tion it has adopted and promulgate It as the Constitution, and no law iv the laud will decide otherwise. ] That is the opinion of several of the leading men in the hotly, who quote the decision in Kentucky, which State I adopted a new Constitution, submit ted it to the voters, it was approved,; and the convention reassembled and then amended the Constitution which the voters had approved. A railroad j company appealed the case and took the matter before the Supreme Court, J which unauimously held that the con vention was the people and could do whatever it liked and either submit it to the voters or promulgate the instru-1 nieut as the Constitution of the State. It is not unlikely that the conven-! tion will keep the pledge made by the Democratic convention at Norfolk and submit the question to the voters though some of the members thiuk it would be better to adopt the Constitu tion and then proclaim it as the organic law of the State, thus removing it en tirely from politics.—lliclnnond News.

Titus Describes His Remarkable Exploit on Walls ofPekin. Calvin Titus says that the most mag niticent exhibition of nerve he saw dur ing the Chinese troubles was by some American infantrymen. One afternoon on the march to Pekin pome of the thirsty soldiers saw a well off to one side of the line. They straggled along toward it, but as each nan approached he was shot down by a concealed Chi- j nese sharpshooters, until five were either dead or badly wounded. Still) the men pressed on toward the well in apparent indifference to the bullets of tn? sharpshooter, and with increased determination to get water for them selves and comrades. Finally the sharpshooter was discovered and killed "ftyeiieofthem7 " To the Newton Republican Mr. Titus has told in a modest manner how it happened that he was first to scale th t Pekin wall. We quote from the Republican's article as follows: •'The officers, in a little group by themselves, were discussing the possi bility of scaling the wall. Titus, act ing as orderly for one them, was stand ing near, and he asked for permission to make the attempt. Colonel Dag gett eyed him closely and asked if he thought he could do it. Titus replied that he would like to try. The Colo nel told him he might make the attempt Ihe wished, Throwing aside his rifle, tux advanced to the wall. Dirt had en thrown up from a road close to c wall and had been piled against it. lis shortened the distance to the top the wall to 25 feet. The wall was ide of large bricks, and the as ;eut s made by digging the hands and t into the crevices where the mortar 1 fallen out. The deed was fraught th extreme peril, there being con stant danger of a misstep, a loose brick and a fall to the ground below, Chi nese soldiers might open fire on him from above at any minute, and it seem ed very probable that he would reach the top only to be made a prisoner by the Chinese there. His comrades below watched him with breathless interest, 'ittle thinking that a deed was being performed which would be heralded throughout the length and breadth of the country. The top was reached and the young hero found himself on the enemy's fortifications—the first for eigner on the walls of Pekin since the trouble began. A reconnoissance re led to him that the Chinese were her down the wall and were busy ring down a leaden hall on troops to right. Titus, who was not seen by enemy, called to the men below ; ail was right and the adjutant cmubed up the wall.

Bears the The Kind You Have Always Bought Conscience as a New Religion I>r Spectator: rolus Vulpes, of Sampson, your Sy, has' a column long article on science" in the Cincinnati Week qnirerof June UOtti. He takes the id that conscience is not a true , but that brain and Bible are. urse, he denies that conscience is ling like the will of Cod to man, as Count Tolstoi has just said it ill the leading Sunday papers of mntry. *toi also says: "Let each one fulfil ut confused and adulterated argu that which each day his Consci ommandshim, and he will rec ) the truth of the Gospel: 'If c wish to do Cod's will, he will i recognize whether my doctrine comes from Cod, or whether I speak of my own accord.' This is the point. Con science calls for no argument—it speaks, it gives peace upon obedience, and the religious duty is done." Cardinal Gibbons has delivered a whole sermon on Conscience. In part, hesajs: "What is the greatest need of our times J Is it churches? They are necessary for the dissemination of Christian truth. Is it schools ? They are most important., indeed; for they mean an ability to earn a living to the individual. Is it hospitals or asylums ! They are necessary and most useful in the alleviation of the sick. But none of these is the most important neces sity of the age. What the times need is sturdy manhood, which will be per sistent in the carrying out of the die tales of Conscience in social, political, and religious life. The times need men who will follow their Conscience rather than expediency, principles rather than popularity. * * The man who follows his Conscience has but one master—Cod, and he will enjoy the lib erty and glory of the kingdom of Cod." The Congregationalist editor of the New York Independent, William Hayes Ward, says of the above: '-It is an ad mirable statement of what I believe. Thousands of leading thinkers, writers aud Christians are seeing that Consci ence must be the new religion of th day. Even Ingersoll said the age need ed "more Conscience." Frajtcis B. Livesey.

Some I months ago he was in Savannah, and 1 out of curiosity visited a clairvoyant land hall his fortune told. The fort une-teller informed him with much impressiveness that he would shortly discover gold on his farm. He laughed at the idea. "Later he dreamed about the gold for several nights, and after a time consented to allow a hypnotist to put one of his small children, a girl of tender years, under his spell. The child described a pot of gold at the end of an old mill dam. Mr. lirannen ■began to dig and at the end of weeks had an excavation big en for the foundation of a modern Yesterday morning he struck an old iron pot. On uncovering it he found it contained about $30,000 in gold coins of dates anterior to the civil war. There is no indication of the person who buried it." Easier Said Than Done.
