Beecher on the South. Henry Ward Beecher, in his sermon on the late Thanksgiving day. sp ke of the South in a manner that shows lie is repentant on one point at least. lie said the South was a great people,” ruined, as he thought, by slavery, which, it might be added, was forced upon them to a great extent by the British government; “but now," he exclaims, “ my j heart turns to them with zeal and admiration.” i He added: “ I lovo them ; their noble conduct since the war more, infinitely m >re than wipes out everything that happened bef re. [Lmid and prolonged appl ruse J Some men said 'it con traven** luin an experieuce tuppose wiai y,iu can ever have in America anything mure than a number of province* rilled by a cen tral and mouarehial authority.' Well, in their aunimalotia conditi >n at the dose of the struggle the Southern Slates w«to province*, but where in history have province* ever acted as did these despised States of the sunny | South ? The men of the South had stood up for their conviction* • they were the victims of the curse of slavery, and plunged by it into war. No men on the face of the earth ever carried themselves better or more nobly.— When ruin was their portion, and their for tunes were poured into the ( pen maw of war, they rose to a nobility that was sublime." It is said that at the announcement of these sentiments “the church fairly shook with ap plause, and Mr. Beecher was constrained to apologtee for the enthusiasm which had car ried him away from bis subject.” —-» » Take Your County Paper. The II'overly Magazine, one of the soundest and most popular periodicals published in the United Suter, thus disburses oa county pa pers t '• Do the city papers say anything in regard to our own county ? Nothing. Do they con tain notices of yourschoofo, meeting*, church es, improvements, and hnc 5n-ds of other local matters of interest which y nr own paper publishes without pay? N t an item. I)o they ever say a w rd calculated t > draw at tention t*» y«»ur county and aid in its progress and enterprise ? Not aline And there are men who take such contracted views of this matter that unless they are getting a* many s jiiare inches of reading matter in their own paper, they think they are not getting the worth of their money. It reminds us of a man who took the largest pair of boots lo calise the price wa* the -amc as the pair much smaller that fitted him.” Banks may ‘’bust” and “ go up," but v*e defy them to get any of our money to soar with. We deposite our spare chauge with delinquent subscriber and none of them will ever go up. Tho Ignorant Cubs. “ Js you the editor The writer !o kej up from Ihe desk on two small gamins with dirty faces, who had en tered the sanctum and stood nervously twitch* | iog their iapg<“d caps before him. 11 Yes, sir. What Jo you want?" •• Well, you sec, the ‘Irish Boys’ and the ‘Silver Stars’ had a game of ball to-day, and we kinder thought as we'J like to have it pub lished." “Is that really so? I knew these two crack clubs were going to play, but I thought it was next week. To which club do you bo ! long?" “ Wo belong to tho ‘Silver Stars.’ I’m ketcher and he’s shortstop. And we waked them fellers, didn’t we, Bill ?" ‘ You bet," re sponded Bill. "Why didn’t you say so be fore ? The ‘Irish Boys’ is a good enough club, but by Jove, give me the ‘Silver Stars.’ Why, I’m delighted to meet both of you," and the editor rose up,shook both of them warmly by the bands, and yelled for the printer’s devil to bring the gentlemen ch dr-*. The two redoubts! !o Silver Stars looked at each other very much perplexed, and seemed at a loss whether to sit down or to dash out of the office. Finally they adopted the former, plan, and pulling their chairs near the d's.r, s > as to be ready to dart out at tho first sign , of hostilities, sat suspiciously eyeing theedi-, tor, who entrenched himself behind a mass of paper, pencil in hand. “ Now, then, tell me all about the game, and I'll write it down." “ Well, the Irish Boys they was a braggin' they could beat us, and we said we had twen- ; ty-five cents that they couldn’t.

The catcher and the shortstop of the Silver Stars looked at the editor in amazement, and then seemed to I o mentally deciding that he was an infernal idiot. “ We mean to say," continued the catcher of tho Silver Star*, who was first to recover from the shock to which he had been subject ed, “that we whitewashed 'em." “0, I see," said the edit »r, with a sudden burst of intelligence; "you put whitewash over them until they looked like goose eggs By Jove, that was a good idea." “ No," said the catcher of tho Silver Stars, witli rising ire, “ wo skunked 'em, you know —akunked ’em.” “Skunked Vm —what do you mean by that?” “ We Chicagoed Vm—giv Vm no runs." “0, now I see,” s»id the editor, almost, bursting into a mar of laughter at tho look of ( intense relief which came over the face of the < two Silver Stars. “Go right on." “ We got right on ter the halls of the pitch- j or of the Irish B >ys in the last iuuius, and «ve pounded the life out of him." “ Hold on," sai l the editor, rapidly writing “TheSilver Stars stood on the hall in the last I inning, and almost killed the pitcher of the Irish Boys when he tried to get it. F'T two whole minutes the Silver Stars re garth d each other in speechless astonishment, then the shortstop pityingly asked : “ Mister, did you ever play base ball ?" “ Very little," sai I the editor, making her culean eff Tts to keep his fa c straight, “but ! I ll scratch this out if it is n ! all right.” “ Gmrse it isn’t right. We mean to ray that we hit his balls easy ; wo knocked ’em hard. I hit him for three tags, an 1 ma le a b une run.” " You dnl ?’’ said the editor, dashing off at a tremendous rate on the paper. “The catch er of the Silver Stars hit three bags with a bill, and made a home run.” This was too much. The Silver Stars got , jp and unauimuusly oncludcd that they must go. " Wbst is your hurry?" askel the editor, again shaking thuir hands warmly ; “stuy a ' little while longer. If you can’t, come up this aft< rnoou and bring all your friends with J ©--4-4 .. Tiio catcher of the Silver Star* blew his nose, wiped it on the cu.‘i of Ids c >at, and Ic I the way downstairs in deep thought. At the bottom of the first flight his feelings could no longer control themselves. “ Bill,” muttered he, “if that fellow ain’t . the ignoraotest cuss 1 ever saw, why ycr can jest shoot me." “ Yes," replied Bill; “but he’s awful friend ly, ain’t he ?"
