If Hen ry Middleton or any body else de sire to he credited to this district we desire them all, first to declare that they are not credited to other States. THE YOUNG MENS' RE UNION. On or ahout the 20th of this month there will be a reunion of the Young Mens' party. This grand event is to take place at the Philadelphia House, one of the most popular houses in the city. Some of our hest youug men from every district will take part in the affair. The object of this reunion is to have an exchange of views upon the condition of the people and the best mode to peisue in the future. THE NEGRO THE BALANCE OF POWER. The colored man in this country is an important factor. There is no class of citizens more honora ble and sincere to a government and more industrious. He 'has proved himself to be a strict ad herent to the principles of the re lican party and a friend to his former master. He has sustained the republican party in power and all he asks is protection. The democratic party will cut every Negro eR throat to keep a white republican from getting control of the State or National Government. The time has come that we de mand, not only protection, but re cognition according to merit. We ask to be recognized and treated as human beings. vVe hold the balance of power; what are we to expect from the republican par ty should that party be successful? Are we still to be "hewers of 2 Q 33 i xi a, l. .c ao:. York, Massachusetts, Indiana, and several other States we hold the balance of power, which will chauge at anj time the affairs of the Government. Give us protection or give us death. The platform of tbe republican party should be broad and un equivocally clear. A friend to the Negro, soldiers, widows, and orphans must be nominated for the republican party to suc ceed. We hold the balance of power and we ask that such a man be nominated. FRANK LANGSTON. It is claimed that the son of John M.Langston shot down in cold blood a Negro and fatally wounded another without a justifiable cause, and that the wThole colored race must be held responsible for the killing, because he is the son of Mr. John M. Langston. ThiB kind of bosh is being used by cer tain white people. We are no more responsible for what Langs ton's son did, than Mr. Lang6ton, who is now at Hyati. There must be something else behiud this shooting. We have heard one side of the story and it is wisdom to wait and hear the other side. No parents have endeavored more than Mr. and Mrs. Langston to raise their children mannerly and give them an education. We re gret the shoting of any hody and no man should kill another unless his own life is in danger. Langs ton is but a youth, hence, let us wait until he is captured or sur renders himself before we con demu him. HON. B. K. BRUCE. We see that a great number of our exchanges are in favor of Hon. B. K. Bruce for Vice-President. We join m with that num ber. We believe him the fittest man, because he is the fittest, and because the people want him. This is short but sweet All we want is, that air the States will do as much for him as Georgia will. This you know is business like talk, something like the old man's prayer. " Not for mueh mltiplica tion of words," but to the bringing about results by electing delegates who are Bruce men. Let him be so complimented, least, the next Presidentwill put him in the Cabi net. We want a colored man in the Cabinet. The Defiance. TO THE YOUNG MEN. It is about time for the young men throughout Jthe country, and especially those in the District of Columbia, to come together and make themselves felt in the body politics. It is an undeniable fact that the old negro politician has proved a failure. He has had all the opportunities that one could have, had those opportunities "been used The average negro politician uuder the old Bowen regime has demon strated the fact that he is unfit to govern and every day convinces us that the time has come tor the young men to strike and take the matter in charge and convince the country that wTe have brain aud intelligence among us; that the age has progressed, aud we belong to the progressive age. We only hope for the time to come when party strife will cease. So long as both 'political parties have the Negro as the subject of discussion so long will party strife exist It would be far better for tbe coun try if all political parties were an nihilated, and establish a party of the people, by the people and for the people." Our duty as young men is to unite and drive these old barnackles to the wall. The Republican party belongs to the progressive age. It is indeed the people's party, when it adheres to the principles upon which their platform is built If we expect suffrage in the District of Colum bia, we as young men, and respect able citizens, must first get rid of the rum mill, and that old gamble ing element that have disgraced our community. Taxation vith out representation, is against he Constitution of the United States ; that the estaiishmentofa territor ial form of government in this District was against the wishes of the people, the class of men that nrcpfi lha chan cca Jifloxr j-x. Lia same old rum and whiskey parry of today. If we are to have suff rage, let it be restrictec. Let us us convince all that we, as young men represent the sentiment of res pectabilitv and that this cause of ours is a just one, The North fought in the war, to preserve the Union. The South, to maintain the es tablishment of a confederacy, with a base and corner-stone of slavery. Which presents, so far as the present National .House of Repre sentatives is considered, the last evidence of having accomplished their object." The cause of secession and slav ery i3 triumphant in the house the cause ot the union is dismayed and the rebel whip and lush is pre eminent in that body to the shame and lasting disgrace of the loyalty of the nation. What it would be worth to the saved Union, to have one hour in this House of Representatives of Thaddeus Stevens, Benjamin Bnt. ler, James G. Blame, Roscoe Conkling, Robert B. Elliott, or Samuel Shellabarger." Has the Union surrendered to the late con federacy. Is the present House of Representatives to be known as the "Confederate House?" TjUTJTHERN CHIVALRY. The Senate committee on South ern outrages will not stop until every rascal is brought to justice. The Danville massacre was one of the most cowardly political measurea to which the democrats resorted, to capture the state. If the democratic leaders expect by killing innocent Negroes will win for them this government, they will find their hopes blighted and the good people of the north rising up in arms againBt them. It is base and cowardly. It may be that our government iB power less to protect its citizens, but there is a time coming when the demo cratic party and the enemies to this government, will receive their reward. A progressive par ty must rise up in the south, be fore the negroes will receive justice and recognition. The southern brigadier still maintains that he is the master of the slaves; that the Negroes have no rights, and must still be submissive to Southern Anarchy. Shall we look for a political revolution? IT WILL NOT DO. It is now the desire and intention of certain men to have the time changed for the holding of the Dis trict nominating convention. It will not do. It is the intention of the mob, to resort to every cor ruptible measure to defeat the ends of justice, and bring our commun ity into disrepute. Let every can didate enter tne conventiou the next morning at ten o'clock, and take his chances. It is claimed that there will not be time enough to caucus. The less caucus we have, the better it will be for the respectable people of this commun ity. Let the time remain as it is for li$utn of the convention. We shall oppose any chauge in this direction, aud so will all re spectable republicans. There is a determination on the part of the mob to rule or ruin. WHY I JOINED THE DETECTIVES. THE BESULT OF TOO MUCH GARRULITY WITH A STRANGER. "Can I sit -with you?" "Certainly, sir." "Nice weather ?" "Splendid, indeed." "Crops growing finely?" "Yes couldn't do better." I was sitting in a car on a "Wisconsin rail way, one day, years ago, when a good look ing, pleasant spoken man came along stop ped at my seat, and the above conversation took place, the latter part of it after I had given him part of my seat. Now, I am regarded as a social man. I like a joke ; more so then than now. On entering a railroad car I always looked about for a talkative man, and then I got as close to him as possible and drained him dry, if the journey was long enough. And I want to state one thing more. Left an orphan before I could realize the sad event which made me one, I got kicked here and cuffed there, and grew up between folks, as they say. I ought to have had, at the time of which I write, a pretty thor ough knowledge of human nature, and have been able to read evil in a man's face if he intended me evil. I did not pride myself on being over sharp, but the knock ing around among strangers ought to have given any one a good experience. Well, the stranger and I fell into an easy train of conversation as we rode to gether, and in ten minutes I began to enjoy his company. He was -a well made fellow, finely dressed, and wore a fine watch and a shuon-puro diamond ring. I never saw a man who could talk so easily and so pleas antly. It seemed that he had but to open I had traveled in the South ; so had he. I had heard the roar of the Pacific; he knew all about it. I had been up in a balloon, down in a mine, been blown up, smashed up, and repaired again and again ; my new friend had. experienced all these things, and was wishing for something of a more startling nature. We agreed on poli tics, neither had any religion, and I had never met such a railroad companion. Did you ever meet a man, who, though a stranger to you ten minutes before, could wrest from you your secrets which you had sworn to yourself not to reveal? "Well, he was such a man. It was not long before he commenced asking me questions. He did not seem to quiz or draw mo out, but he asked me questions in such a sly, round about way, that before I knew it I was giv ing him my history. I was at that time on the point of being admitted to the bar of Wisconsin as a stu dent of Law & Law, of Briefville. The firm were old lawyers with lucrative prac tice, and it had been talked over that with in a month I was to v a "Co." of the firm. A year before, a fa'sier named Preston, down about four miles from Grafton, died, and his matters had been put into the hands of Law & Law for settlement. Pres ton had died rich. He had money in bank, railroad stock and mortgages, etc., ; and everything was settled up to the satisfac tion of the relict and fatherless. About a year before his death, being pinched iot money and not wishing to sell anything at a sacrifice, Preston had given mortgage on his farm for $3,000. While tie paper read "for one year from date," there was a verbal agreement that it should be lifted any day that Preston desired. A month afterwards, having tho funds to clear off Hie paper, the "old money bags" holding it refused to discharge, wishing to secure his interest for a year. I was on my way to learn the date of expiration. A fire among my office papers had destroyed the memoranda, and I must go down and get the date from old Grip, who lived south of Grafton about five miles. The stranger pumped all this out of me in about ten minutes, and yet I never once suspected he was receiving any information. "I am not positive," I added, "but I am pretty sur the time is the 13th, which would be Tuesday next" "And then your folks will send down the money and discharge the mortgage, of course," he queried. Oh, yes, I shall most likely bring it down." I replied, and it never occurred to me how imprudent I was. He turned the conversation into Other channels, and did not once attempt to pump me further. "We got to Grafton at 10:50, and, to my great surprise, he an nounced that he was to stop in town on business for a few days. I had npt asked his avocation, while be knew everything about me. "We went to the hotel, had dinner, and then I secured alivery team and drove out, netting through the whole business so that I was Kick to take the 3:20 express east. My friend was on the porch of the hotol as I drove up, carrying the same honest digni fied ifac. "Well, did yon find out?" he inquired, in his pleasant way. "Yes it wa3 on the 13th, as I expected," I replied. "We had lunch together, and when we shook hands and parted I had no more idea of ever meeting him again than I had of knowing you. In fact, he told me that he should sail for Europe within a week or ten days and should not again return to America, At parting he gave me his card. It was a modest piece of pasteboard, and bore the name of "Georg Raleigh," in old English script. Everything at the office went on as usual, and the 13th came at length. Law & Law had arranged with me to go down with the money, and I looked upon it as a business of no special importance. rWe know you are all right," remarked the senior partner, as I was about to go; "but I want to give you a word of warning, nevertheless. Don't take any strangers into your confidence, until you have passed out the money, and look out who aits next to you." It was something new for him to caution me, and I could not but wonder at it ; but in the bustle of getting aboard the train, I forgot what he had said. Ordinary pru dence had induced me to place the money which was all in bank bills and dividec into three packages, under my shirt and next to my skin, where the deft hand of a pickpocket could not reach it. Interested in a newspaper, time flew by as the train flew past, and at length the hoarse voice of the brakeman warned me that I had reached Grafton. I had leaped down and was making for the livery stable when I heard a familiar voice, and looked up to see Ealeigh. He was seated in a buggy, and had seemingly waited for me to come in. "Don't express your surprise," he began, as I stopped at the wheel. "I did intend to go away; I changed my mind and like this section so well that I am going out to-day to look at a farm with a view of purchasing tome, ride up to the hotel." We rode up, ordered lunch, and while we were discussing it Mr. Raleigh discovered that the farm he was going to see was just beyond that of old Grip's. How fortunate I I could ride out with him, see the farm, return in his company, and he was greatly pleased. I was also greatly pleased. If any one had told me as we got into the buggy that George Raleigh meant to return with my blood upon his hands I should have believed him a lunatic, and yet George Raleigh had planned to do that very thing. It was a lovely day in June, and the cool breeze and the-sight of meadows and green groves made my heart grow larger. My companion was very talkative, hut he didn't even hint at my errand. He talked as far away as he could. "Oh! excuse me!" he exclaimed, after we had passed a mile beyond the village, and were among the farm houses. "I should have offered you this before." He drew from his pocket a small flask of wine and handed it to me. Now, I was temperate in regard to drinks. In fact, I detested the sight and smell of anything intoxicating. But I had not the moral courage to tell him so, and hand back the flask undisturbed. I feared to offend him and so I drank perhaps three good swallows. He called my attention to the woods on the left as he received back the flask, and when I looked around again he was just removing it from his mouth, aa if he had drank heartily. In about five minutes I began to feel queer. The fence along the road seemed to grow higher and the trees grow larger; something came to my ears that the rattle of the buggy sounded a long way off. "How strange ! "Why, I believe I am go ing to be sick !" I exclaimed, holding on to the seat with all my might. "You do look strange," he replied, with a snaky smile stealing over his lace; "I shouldn't wonder if it was apoplexy." I did not suspect thegamehe had played. His words were like an echo, and his face seemed twice as largo as it was. My head began to spin and my brain began to snap and crack, and I was greatly freghtened. "You are badly off," he continued, look ing into my lace. ' "I will drive as fast as possible and get a doctor." My tongue was so heavy .that I could not reply. I clutched the seat, shut my eyes, and "he put his horse at his best pace. "We met a farmer's team, and I remember that one of the occupants of the wagon called out to know what ailed that man. Raleigh did not reply, but urged his horse forward. About three miles from Grafton was a long stretch of forest, and this was soon reached. The pain in my head was not so violent, and I was not so badly affected whp.n nnonincr mv rvpo T YiaH ati.lixi trl a sort of dumb stupor, with a brain so be numbed that I had to say to myself: "This is a tree, that is a stump," etc., before I could make sure I was not wrong. Half a mile down the road after we struck the forest, and then Raleigh turned the horse into a blind road leading back into the woods. I could not understand what he intended. I tried to grapple with the ques tion, but could not solve it. v "Well here we are!" exclaimed Raleigh, when we had reached a point about forty rods from the main road. He stopped the horse, got out and hitched him, and then came around to the wheel. You don't feel just right, but I guess you will be bettor soon," ho remarked. Come let me help you down." He reached up his arms, and I let go the seat aud fell into them. It seemed to me as if I weighed a ton, but he carried me along without any effort, and laid me down within about a rod of a fence which ran along on one side of an old pasture. Just now I began to get a little better. The effects of the drug were wearing off, and I got a fair suspicion that something unus ual had happened, But I was powerless to move a limb; the sensation was like that when your foot goes to sleep. "Can you speak? inquired Raleigh, bending over me; "because if you can it will save me some trouble. I want to know just where you stored that money." Now I began to realize my situation. His lace looked natural again, and the load was off my tongue. I also felt that I could move my fingers a little. "George Raleigh ! are you going to rob me? I asked, finding my voice at last. "Well, some folks might call it 'robbing,' but we dress up tho term a Kttle by calling it the only correct financial way of equal izing the floating currency, so that each one is provided for and no one left out." "You shan't have the money. I will die first!" I yelled, rising a little. "Ah, I "see didn't take quite enough," he coolly remarked. "Well T have provided for this." He went to the buggy, procured ropea and a gag, and kneeled down beside me. I had but little strength yet, and ho con quered me in a moment. Lying on my right side looking toward the fence, he tied my hands behind me , and then forced the gag into my mouth. "There now! You see you are nicely fixed up, and all because you acted like a fool, instead of a sensible young lawyer, soon to be admitted to the bar." While he was speaking, indeed while he was tying me, I had caught sight of the lace of a little girl looking at us from be tween the rails of the fence. I could see her great blue eyea, and knew that she was frightened. There were red stains aronnd her mouth and on the little hand resting on the rail, and I knew that she was some larmer's child searching for strawberries. I could not warn her of her danger, and feared that she would be seen or heard. While Raleigh was tying the last knot, I winked at the little girl as hard as I could, hoping that she would move away. But she did not go. "Well, now for the money," said Raleigh, and he began searching my pockets. He went from one to the other, removing all the articles; felt down my boot-leg, and finally passed his hand over ray bosom, and found the money. "Ha, here it is !" he exclaimed, drawing out the money. "I dont hardly believe old Grip will see any of this to-day." He sat down near my head, undid the package, and was cool eaough to go at it and count the money. Aa he commenced the little girl waved her hand at me. My heart went thumping, for I expected she would utter a word or shout; hut she sank back from sight, and I caught a gleam, cf her frock as she passed through the grass. "You see, my young friend," remarked Raleigh, as he drew off one of his boots and deposited some of the bills in it, "there's nothing like transacting business as it should be transacted. Some men would have shot or stabbed you, but it is only ap prentices who do such work. All the real gentlemen of our calling do business as gentlemen should." He drew oft the other boot, and placed some "fifties" and "twenties" in it, and then continued : "I have it all planned out how to deal with you as soon as I get this money dis posed of about my person. I shall lay you on your back and pour the rest of the wine down your throat. There's enough of it to make you sleep nntil to-morrow night, and by that time I shall be hundreds of miles away. As soon as I see the drug take effect, I shall untie your hands and remove the gag. When you come out of your sleep if you ever do you had bet ter crawl out to the road, where you will most likely meet some traveler soon. I want to use the horse and buggy, otherwise I would leave them for you." How cooly he talked. He treated the matter as if it were a regular transaction in which I fully acquiesced. He bad me a last prisoner, and I felt that he could do just as he pleased. While I was thinking, I saw the little white face appear again, but in a moment it faded away and its place was taken by the sunburned phia of a farmer. He looked from me to Raleigh and hack again, and I winked back again in a way which he readily understood. His face disappeared and I felt that I should be saved. "No, old Grip won't get his tin to-day," mused Raleigh, storing away the hills in his pockets. "'You will go back to Law & Law feeling put out and cut up, but they cannot blame you ; it is not your fault at all. True, had you minded your business on the car and not been free with a stranger, this would not have happened. I was on my way to Milwaukee, and had no thought of such rich pickings here. I saw nothing of the farmer; Raleigh fin ished his counting, and I made up my mind that the farmer was afraid to interfere, and had run away. My heart went down as Raleigh got up, for I saw that he was about to carry out his plans for further drugging me. He turned me on my back, sat down astride of me, and then pulled out the flask. "Now, in just about a minute we'll be through with the business," he remarked, trying to put the mouth of the flask be tween my jaws. I rolled my head to one side, and he did not succeed. He was jamming the flask against my teeth, when I caught the sound of a soft step, the crash of a club, and Ra leigh rolled off my body. He tried to leap up, but three or four farmers struck him down, and one of the blows rendered him senseless. Before he came to I was free of ropes and gag, and we had him securely bound. Over beyond the pasture a farmer and his hands were making hay. "Little Blue Eyes," only 8 years old, had, fortunately for me, witnessed a part of Raleigh's pro ceedings. She had. hurried back to her fa ther and told him that "a man was all tied up out there." Understanding the situation, he and his men had moved around so as to secure au advantage, and Raleigh's capture was the result. When the rascal found his senses he was terribly taken back, and cursed enough for a whole Flanders army. We took him hack to Grafton, and when I saw him again he was on his way to the penitentiary to serve a sentence of fifteen years. The mortgage was duly lifted, and the gift which Law & Law sent to Katie Grey kept her in dresses for many a year. For myself, I felt so humiliated'at having fallen into the rascal's trap, and so wrathy at the treatment, that I determined to de vote myself to a thorough warfare on all rogues. I therefore joined a detective force, and after due study, took my place as afull- A paragraph is related in reference to one of Whitfield's remarks to his congregation. It induces us to relate what we saw with our own eyes and heard with our own ears. We were listening to an eccentric old clergy man in Ohio. He was speaking of the wickedness of his people, their danger, etc. "My friends," said he "if yon do not repent, you will go to hell just as sure as I catch that fly," at the same time making a pass at a fly that had perched upon the open Bible. The old man slowly opened his hand, finger by finger, but no fly wasfound. He looked down aud around upon his con gregation foraminute, aud theu exclaimed, 'Why you poor devils, there is some chance Sbr you yet." i "-The waters saw their God and blushed," is a translation of a Latin epigram. It is often quoted, Vidit et crubuit lympha pudica Deum, and has been attributed to Dryden when a school-boy at Westminster. It has also been claimed as the production of an Eton boy who was required to make a Latin verse on the miracle of turning the water into wine, but it is resdly from an epigram by Crashaw, an English poet of the time of Charles I., who was converted to the Ro man Catholic faith, and died a canon in the Church of Loretto in 1650. The original is as follows: Pympha pudica Deum vidit et erubuit. In one of Bishop Heber's poems we find the following line: "The conscious water saw its God and blushed," but the idea seems to have originated with Cra shaw. "CWta" m AT. Y. World.
