A young bar ister present was duputed to take the widow to dinner. Unfortunately he had the impression that his partner was the married lady whose husband had just to India. The conversation between gone them was commenced by the lady, re marking how extremely hot it was; "Yes, it is very hot," returned the young barrister. Then a happy thought suggested itself to him, and he added with a cheerful smile. "But not so hot as the place to which your husland has gone." The look with which this lady answered this "happy thought" will haunt this unhappy youth till his death.

SPRINGER, Clerk of the Peace. New Castle, Oct. 13th, 1876. A Pair of Wits —Chesterfield and Yoltaire, born in the sameyear(1694), were warm and life-long friends.— Whatever may have been the erratic Frenchman's vagaries and miffs, for he never bad a friend whom he did not at some time abuse, Lord Chesterfield was too much of a gentleman to take offense or even notice. On a certain ocoasion the two friends were in company at a grand ball in Paris, given by the King's favorite. Chesterfield stood by a marble pillar, gazing upon the brilliant assemblage of ladies when Yoltaire accosted him : "My lord, you should be a judge in such matters. Now, seriously, do you not think our French ladies the most attractive you ever saw ?" "Upon my word," replied Chester field, with a nod and a smile, "I am Jiot a judge of paintings."_ Not long afterwards Voltaire crossed over to England and was present one evening at a party given by English Doblemen in London. A lady in the company, sparkling in jewels and highly ronged, was particularly atten tive to the noted Frenchman, engross ing muoh of his discourse. Chester field observing, came up and tapped his friend ou the shoulder. "Be wary, monsieur, or you will be captivated." "No fear, my Lord," quickly retort ed Voltaire, "I am not to be captured by an English craft sailing under Freuch colors. ff jfotot §oitrg. THE TWO WORKERS. ' Two workers in one field Toiled on from day to day ; Both had the same hard labor. Both the same small pay. With the same blue sky above, The same green earth below, One soul was full of love, The other full of woe. One leaped up with the light, With the soaring of the lark ; One felt it ever night, For his soul was ever dark. One heart wns hard as stone, One heart was ever gay ; One worked with many a groan, One whistled all the day. One had a flower-clad cot Beside a merry mill, Wife nnd children near the spot Made it sweeter, fairer still ; One a wretched hovel had, Fall of discord, dirt and din,— No wonder he seemed mad,— Wife and children starved within. Still they worked in the same field ; Toiling on from day to day; Both bad the same hard labor, Both the same small pay ; But they worked not with one will, The reason let me tell,— Lo ! the one drank at the still, And the other at the well. (Written for the Middletown Transcript.] Centennial Notes No. 11. SWEEDKN AND NORWAV When we go from Italy to Sweden and Norway in this continent., we are not obliged to cross Prussia with her fearful Krupp guns, but merely to step over a dark line, and enter in their gales. A great many persons here hitherto had an idea that the inhabi tants of this far distant clime with its snow-clad hills, were little more than Barbarians, but we think this exhibi tion will enlighten them more than volumes can, on the advancement and progress of these countries. Their lit erature is as old as their hills, almost, and the stories of their sea kings and mountain gods date back to times im memorial. In this department we see their legends painted on glass and china, and recall vividly to mind their stories which we read with wondering childish interest years ago, and half wished and half dreaded to see one of their crowned kings of the sea riding on the back of a monster serpent rising frm^our peaceful waters. We can im agine the fairy queens of the mountain dells decked with the silver filigree jewels, similar to those whieh are ex hibited here, looking so frail and almost transparent, and fit only for their use. They also make a fine display of cut glass, from tiDy wine glasses to magni ficent fruit dishes, from the rose to hold but a single flower to the largest boqaets. Large pieces of nickel ore are shown too Some very fine fire-proof safes are to be seen here. Wo noticed a fine display of silver ore under glass as we traveled along. In this depart ment some Norwegian gigs or sulkies are to be seen. The wheels are unusually heavy, the seat very low, the foot of the sulky extending very far forward, making it a rather uncomfortable posi tion to ride in for any great distance. Some magnificent robes of polar bear skins, also some of the Eider Duck were very much admired. Cotton goods in great variety are here also and some handsome oil cloths. Sweden makes quite a large display of cod liver oil, but even in its brightness and trans parency, it was a sickly sight. A curi ous display of matches caught our eye, a pyramid of entirely consumed matches is formed, the match being entire, not dropping off as soon as burned. Some ink is exhibited,over which is an invita tion to "please try," which is quite a relief from the monotonous "hands off. There ar<T some very Üne^ sweet toned pianos in this exhibit, including square, upright and grand, the cases of which were beautifully finished. Any quant ity of fishiDg seines of immense size are here. Various colored marbles are ex hibited, as also extra heavy druggists bottles. They have some beautiful chinaware in this exhibit, including tea sets, dinner sets, vases and toilet sets. A magnificent mantle-piece at least ten or twelve feet high was very much ad mired, It was beautifully enamelled in blue and white ; underneath was a grate, and we were informed that when there was a fire made of either wood, coal or coke it would keep warm for twenty-four hours. On each side of this mantle were two candle-sticks of the same material and color. Quite a number of straw chairs and flower stands are also shown. A very pretty fountain in Magolicaware is seen here, representing a Mermaid with lilies.— AmoDg the other carious wares was a display of jewelry made from grind stones ; it is astonishing what a variety of colors is presented in this display.— There is also a large display of brass musical instruments, which would make our Middletown band thrill with de light. The penetrating winds of days like this, make us wish for some'of the elegant fine cloaks that are seen here in such profusion Sweden makes also a fine display of cutlery, such as razors, daggers, table-knives and forks, and pocket-knives. They have the finest display of tinware in tho building, both » as regards style and material. Their wall paper will compare favorably with any other in the exhibition ; as also the writing paper and paper as "thick as board. excel the world. A great variety of circular saws were exhibited, and all manner of tools made in the most work man-like manner. They also display largo quantity of steel rails and guns, one of the latter was certainly very fine, also tiies of steel and steel coil hoops. In the way of curiosities was one steel chip (taken from a railway wheel) the spiral length of which was 322 feet; and the stretched length, 1286 feet. Guns in great numbers are exhibited ; also harness for artillery and cavalry ; also wagons used in the army of unuj ual strength : one kind, of two wheels, carrying a third one in case of accident. A portable blacksmith shop, on wheels, for army purposes is also to be seen here The group of Swcedish officers elicit a great deal of admiration for their hand some dress and soldierly bearing They represent the infantry, artillery and cavalry ; also two others who are dress ed in the style of 1600 and 1700. The Sweedish domestic groups, scattered through the department, are continual ly surrounded hy admiring spectators, and have been mentioned, we believe, in a previous article. Altogether, Swe den and Norway have astonished our people as well as the foreign nations, who came here expecting to eclipse the world and find themselves overshadowed by these cold northern folks who are elad in bear skins, similar to our In dians, and can embroider with Ger many, compete with Italy in silver filigree, equal Russia in furs, the Jap anese in chinaware, Austria in glass, Prussia in firearms, America in match sticks, and defy the world in steel.

Sons of Erin, remember when you go to vote, that the Democratic party has formed an alliance with the potato bug and the heathen Chinee to put up the price. Mistaken Kindness. —The father who, for a great portion of hie life, has atruggled with poverty, ia unwilling that his children should have similar experience. So he denies himself in dulgence in even necessary things that be may save and make for his family. The mother, remembering how irksome household tasks were to her in her girl hood, permits tier daughters to lead lives of domestic ease and indolence, thinking that in so doing she makes the best manifestation in her power of ma ternal love. As a "natural consequence of this view of the parents, we aoe growing up all around us young men and women perfectly useless for all the practical purposes of life—unable to copo with misfortune. Intellectual or moral fibre is not inherent ; it must be built up from within, and is tho result of independent thought and aotion. The sooner a boy oan be made to wait upon himself, to think for himself, to act for himself the sooner the germs of true manhood begin to develop within him. It is no kindness to surround him with such attentions and care that he will not be compelled to learn the lesson of self reliance, of patient in dustry, of persistent hope. The real crowns of this world are crowns of labor. The Republicans have a great deal to say about the "solid Soath." It is true the South is pretty nearly "solid," and it is not strange. Republican misrule has made it "solid." Impov erishing the land has made it "solid." Turning out the Legislatures and Gov ernors by the army has made it "solid. The rule of carpet-baggers and Repub lican camp followers has made it 'solid.' The Freedmen's Bank, the name for » one of the Republican devices for swindling the negro, has helped to make it "solid. The instigation of he "black men to violence to "fire the Northern heart" has made it "solid.' Northern hatred and malignity have made it "solid. The present vehe ment and villainous sectional attempts to make a "solid North" against the South, after the work of the "solid ff North" for the last ten years, would naturally tend to make the South "solid." The innocent trust of the Sioux In dian, when engaged in making a treaty, is truely touching. Said one of them at the late council: "We want the Great Father to give us food to eat and clothes to wear, besides good tents, horses, cows and wagons, and our an nuity money every year, with presents of rifles and large stores of ammunition. Then adding: "Ugh, ugh! Horse hath spoken," he glanced long ingly at Bishop Whipple's venerable scalp, and wished t§ gracions he could get the old man off alone. ft War Nothing was so mach dreaded in our school-boy days, says a distinguished writer, as to be punished by sitting be tween two girls. Ah, the force of edu cation ! In after years we learn to zub mit to such things without shedding a tear. CHAS. FRANCIS ADAMS OH THE SITU ATION The following letter from Charles Francis Adams on the issues in the present Presidential Campaign, was recently read before a mass meeting in the Cooper Institute, New York. It was written in answer to an invitation to the distinguished writer to be pres* ent and address the meeting : Daniel Magone, Jr., Esq. ,Chairman New York State Democratic Committee. Dear Sir : Absence from home pre vented me from answering promptly your letter of the 20th inst. If I were younger it would be an agreeable duty to perform the task to which you invite me. But I have not done anything of the kind for fifteen years, and am now in my seventieth year. Should I accept your invitation I should probably give rise to others which would have an equal claim. My judgment is that I had better stay at home. Yet I think I fully appreciate the importance of this cadvass. It is narrowing itself daily more and more into a struggle between the people and the managers who hold the official or ganisation of the country—for their own exclusive benefit. From the days of the Credit Mobilier down to the last exposures made by the investigations of the last Congress, there is only one conclusion to be drawn, and that is the prevalence of corruption almost every where in the Republican organisation. The honest men do, indeed, make brave and sincere efforts to resist this baneful influence, but they are too often defeated to raise any just hopes of ulti mate sucoess. This struggle has been going on for years, and no material change for the better has yet been effected. The time has now come for a radical change and the substitution of a wholly new influence, tied up by no restrictions other than the genuine wishes of honest men of all parties.— When in a great popular convention of a party to nominate a candidate for the Presidency, one gentleman, deeply compromised by the investigations of a committee of the House of Represen tatives, comes within twenty-five votes of a nomination, and another, who really did honor to himself by fearless and effective exposures of corruption in high places, could not command more than a hundred votes, it seems to me that it is high time for a change in pub lic^ opinion. Neither is the case im proved by a view of the manner in whioh the canvass has been carried on. The great effort of the Republicans seems to be to operate on the popular passions excited during the late civil war. Instead of repeating the honora ble call of President Orant "Let us have peace," the cry is for raising what may prove another war. And why is this ? Only because the people of the Southern States choose to vote as they please, without regard to the cor rupt combinations of office-holders all over the oountry, wielded by equally corrupt combinations of legislators at the seat of government, to perpetuate their own power. Verily, verily, if the people are wise they will lay down party and seize the present opportunity to make a change. I am very truly yours, a of a ; ; a Chas. Francis Adams. Banks in the United States.— There are to-day in the United States 907 obartered State banks, 2,118 na tional banks, 666 savings banks and 2,875 private banks—6,066 in all.— The pioneer was the Bank of North America, established in Philadelphia by Congress in 1782, with a capital of $400,000. It issued notes redeemable in Spanish dollars, and aided Robt. Morris in carrying the colonies through the dosing years of the war. Two years later the Bauk of Na g York was j opened in Walton House with Alex ander Hamilton on the board of direc ors. In 1799 the Bank of the Manhat tan Company was organized with Aaron Barr as one of the managers. When the second war with Great Britain broke out eighty-nine banks had been organiznd under the State charters, with a capital of over $40,000,000. The State banks at the present time have a capital of $164,366,669, while the national banks have attracted over $400,000.000 to their support. It is the fashion now to suspect everybody. Very well, if only every one wonld auspeot himself. That would be a most wholesome and timely exeroise It wonld help to restore that confidence of man in man wbioh is essential not only to the well-being of society, bat almost to the existence of society itself. When mes are distrustful of themselves, not in lack of a becoming self-reliance but in a profound sense of the power of evil within the soul, and the power of temptation without, then their very weakness makes them strong. It puts them on their guard, gives a more delicate touch to conscience, and sende them to the Infinite Source of strength.

New Yorkers were horrified one day recently by seeing three young ladies of respectable appearance smoking on the street-oars. The system of getting poor stock run over on railroads is said to be extensive ly practiced by farmers for the sake of the damages. Reflection is a flower of the mind, giving ont a wholesome fragrance; but reverie is the same flower, when rank, and running to seed. A sensitive old bachelor says that pretty girls always affect him as orna mental confectionary does—they give him the heartburn. The smallest and slightest impedi ments are the most annoying; and as little letters most tire the eyes, so do little affairs most disturb us. To ordinary teaobers a naughty trick in a schoolboy or schoolgirl seems a wicked nature, as if a pimple or a pock mark were a part of the countenance. Whoso would fee! the tenderest par ticipation in joy, let him not look at happy children, but at the father and mother who rejoice to see them happy The golden moments in the stream of life rush past us, and we can see nothing but sand ; the angels come to visit us, and we only know them when they are gone. In New York the acme of laziness has been reached, for there sun umbrel las, made to be fastened to the baok in stead of being carried in the hand, are offered for sale. The voice that rolls the stars along spoke all the promises. Plead them before God. Adopt the language of one of old, "I will not let thee go ex cept thou bless me." A romantic young lady of Edin burgh, Scotland, 19 years of age, of fine appearance and superior accom plishments, recently eloped with and was married to her father's eoaohman. Children sweeten labors, but they make misfortunes more bitter ; they in crease the oares of life ; but they miti gate the remembrance of death.— Ba con. j jdn by exhibi ti n g patience: with tha latter, as with public functionaries, by impatience. Talent is a very common family trait ; genius belongs rather to individuals ; just as you find one giant or one dwarf in a family, but rarely a whole brood of either. Women are fond of deferring ; men of going ahead. With the former we When the war of the Revolution be gan there was bnt one man in Massa chusetts who was worth more than thirty thousand dollars ; there are now forty-five worth more than a million. Genins is not intoxioation, and it ia even more than rapture ; it ia oapaoity subject to the law of truth and beauty —the intense action of tho aonl, ex alted, harmonioua, and fllnminated. What is done from habit ia done without reflection and without reoollee tion. This explains why we are so lit tle able to give the reasons for our past oareor, or to revive a remembrance of its incidents. Aim at perfection in every thing, though in most things it ia nnattainad ; however, they who aim at it, and per severe, will come muoh nearer to it than thoae whose laziness and despon- ' dency makes them give it up as unat tainable. A romantie story ia reported from Jersey City. Jacob Habert, who baa a wife and seven children, was ejected from his house, a few days ago, for non-payment of rent, and hia furniture remained oo the sidewalk from Thurs day untill Sunday night, because he had no place to go.. On Monday he received a letter from England, inform ing him of the death of a relative, and inclosing a draft for $25,000.
