There’s a gaping rent in the curtain That longs for a needle and thread ; There's a garment that ought to be finished, And a hook that wants to be read. There’s a letter that ought to be answered, I’ll ere nr.- cloU.es to fold away, * a And 1 know these task* are wanting And ought io be done to day. Bnt how can I mend the curtain While watching the silvery clond 1 And how can I finish the garment When the robin calls so loud ? And the whiup’riug trees are telling Such stories about my head. That l cannot but lie and listen And the book is all unread. 111 try to read the letter, I am sure one-hall the words Will he In the curious language Of my chattering friend*, the bird*. The lilacs bloom in the sunshine, The roses nod and smile, And the clothes that ought to be folded And ironed, must wait awhile. I lie in the cooling shadows. And gaze at the summer sky. Bidding the cares and troubles, And trials of life pass by. The beautiful summer blossoms Are falling at my feet, Aud the dreamy air is laden With their odors rare and sweet. The honey -bees hum In the clover, The grasses rise and toll, The robin stops and listens As he hears the brown-thrash call. And the birds sing to me softly, lhe butterfly flies away— Oh, what could be sweeter tba* living This beautiful summer day ? A GREAT OPERATION, ‘Say, John, —didn’t that woman go way crying?’ ‘She was snuffing a bit,’ answered John Glenddin slipping around from behind his counter. J I should call it crying,’ said George Austin, the first speaker. ‘What was it?’ ‘Couldn’t do it ? Why not?’ ‘Why—fact is, old fellow, she pawned a brooch here a few weeks ago, and just now she wanted to re deem it; but the time was more than up, and I couldn’t do it.’ ‘Why—bless your soul! The brooch was pearls and garnet in one of the finest sittings I ever say—the pearls pure oriental, aud the garnet like a crimson ruby.’ ‘And how much had you advanced on it?’ ‘Ten dollars.’ ‘And it was worth— ’ ‘Fifty, at least,’ ‘And very likely, it was a keep sake.’ ‘So she said. But it isn’t safe to believe the stories ot the poor crea tures that come to pawn jewelry. She liad her needs and I have my rules. She knew the ruleß before she left the brooch, aud she had no business to come back after the time w’as up.’ John Gleddin and George Austin were cousins. George’s mother had been a sister to John’s father; but the mother and the lather were both dead, and John aud George were or phans. George had learned the printer’s trade, and was at present engaged upon a daily paper, while John~ had worked his way into a pawn-broker’s office; and, though only five-and-twenty, had learned all the”tricks of trade, that can extort money from the poor and the needy. But John Gleddin did not do busi ness under his own name. The man before him had used ‘Joshua Slurr,’ and the same name John used. ‘Joshua Slurr’ appeared beneath the three golden balls over the door; and it was also upon the business cards ; and furthermore, all his re ceipts and pawn tickets John signed ‘«7. Slurr.' ‘I don’t know, John,’ said George who has his cousin’s junior by two years, after a season of reflection, ‘but I think I would rather plod on at my type-case than be in your bus iness.’ ‘Pshaw! You’re soft-headed. I tell you, George, I am making money. You have no idea of the profit.’ ‘For instance,’ said George, ‘you have made twenty dollars on that brooch.’ ‘Aye,—thirty.’ Well, I wouldn’t have the weight of that poor woman’s sobs and tears on my conscience for ten times the amount. So you can just see how I feel.’ ‘Pshaw !’ Shortly afterwards George Auston went away to the printing-office and as it was well into the evening John made preparations for closing up. He had put most of his jewelry into his safe when the door ot his office opened, and an elderly gentleman entered —a good looking man he was, and very respectably dressed, though his garb was much worn, and considerably soiled, and smelled strongly of salt water. ‘ls the proprietor in ?’ asked the gentleman. John nodded assent. ‘Mr. Slurr, I think ?’ John repeated his assented nod. ‘I am caught iu a tight place,’ said the gentleman with agiin and ghast ly smile, a 9 though a pawn-broker’s shop was about the most uncomfort able place, ho could have selected to escape from his tightness. ‘I have just landed here in your city, and discover that my luggage, by moßt ridiculous oversight on my fiart, lias gouo to New York. In jondon I took a bill ot exchange on Boston, and not only that, but a few five and ten pound notes on the Bank of England, which I had with me, are by this time in the distant metropolis. So lam forced (another grim, ghastly smile) to have recourse to an establishment where credit may be had upon a ready collateral.’ John Gleddin bowed politely, and said he would be happy to be of service. Then the gentleman took from his pocket a morocco case upon opening which he exposed a gold watch. John took the watch and turned to the gas jet, and upon ex amining it, he found it to be a mas terpiece of one of the most celebra ted Swiss makers—a stem winder, full ruby jeweled, of most exquisite adjustment aud finish. He knew that the first cost of that watoh was not less than three hundred dollars in gold. ‘How much did you want on this ?’ he asked returning the watch to the case. ‘I want enough to get me safe to New York.’ John started off on the many and extreme risks of his business; but the gentleman stopped him abruptly. ‘I ask you to run no risk on my aocount. I do not propose to sell the watch. I only wish to leave it with you as security for a very small sura. I have another just like it, —I bought them as presents ior two friends of mine, and would not sell them for ten times their value. Fif ty dollars will answer.’ John tried to cough down the idea of advancing so much, but the oough stuck in his throat ‘For how long do you want the fif ty dollars ?’ ’ ‘For—say—two weeks,’ Never mind the various dodges has attending the transaction on the part of broker. Suffice it to say that he at length counted out fifty dollars to his customer and took the watch ; and the ‘trade,’ as he termed i% stood thußiatany time within the two weeks the gentleman could redeem hiw watch upon the payment of sixty dollars. ‘Rather steep interest,’ said the el derly gentleman, with a smile far more grim aud severe than any which had preceded it. John would have again explained the enormous risks of his business, but the customer would not listen. ‘What name ?’ said John, holding his pen over his entry-book. ‘l’ut it down, Simon Snibbs , if you must have a name.’ So John put it down, and then he put the watch away, and the custom er departed with the fifty dollars. After the man had gone JohnGled din took out the watch and looked at it again. His eyes sparkled eagerly. Suppose any thing should happen to prevent the prompt redemption of the valuable pledge ? The thought thrilled him through and through. The days passed,—and a week past. The days passed again, and another week had sped by. At length the elderly gentlemen returned, and asked for his watch. ‘What name ?’ asked John profess ing to have forgotten. ‘Snibbs — Simon Snibbs .’ ‘Ah yes. I remember. Let me see.’—And he looked over his book. —‘Really, Mr. Snibbs, youmust have made a mistake. I have no watch of yours.’ ‘How, sir,’ cried the customer in blank amazement. ‘Did I not leave with you a valuable gold watch as security of a certain sum which I borrowed of you ?’ John smiled blandly. ‘Not exactly as you put it, Mr. Snibbs. If you will refresh your memory, you will recollect that I bought the watch, —that for value received, you give me a regular bill of sale, —with the provision, howev er, that if, within two weeks from the date thereof, you should pay to me the sum of sixty dollars in cur rent funds, the watch should become again your property. The two weeks expired yesterday, sir!* ‘But —sir! Will you— ’ John put up his hand reproving- ly ‘ , . . ‘There is no need of going into a passion, my dear sir, you see just how the matter stands.’ From a tearing rage, the old man descended to argument and explana tion. He told how he had been de tained in New York by an unavoida ble accident, and how he embraced the first opportunity to call for his watch. ‘I had not worried much,’ he said, because I had not thought that any man could be consumately mean and cold-bloodedly heartless as to rob me upon such a pretext.’ At this John waxed wroth, and or dered the man to leave his office. And the old gentlemen, fearing that he should be led to commission of some foolish outrage if he remained longer within the villainous influence closed his lips together, and went away. On the afternoon of that very day, John Gleddin sold the watch to an agent of a Philadelphia house for two hundred and seventy-five dol lars. ‘Hi,yah !’be cried, as George Aus tion dropped in during the evening. ‘Plod on at your type case, old fel low, plod on!’ ‘What’s up John?’ ‘The greatest operation I ever made,—two hundred and seventy-five dollars in pocket at the single turn of the die—interest on fifty dollars for two weeks? What d’ye think of that ?’ ‘lf money were man’s chief end,’ said George soberly,—‘if money were the sole source of happiness, — I should say you were on the road. But you know my sentiments, and won’t argue the point. And, be sides, we havn’t time. I come to let you know that Uncle Moses has got home.’ ‘Uncle Moses !’ cried John, clasp ing his hands ‘Yes. He has but just arrived, and called on me this afternofin. He wants you and I to call and see him at the Tremont this evening.’ ‘Of course we’ll go and see him,’ said John starting to put away his valuables. ‘The old fellow must be rich as mud, and you and I are his only relatives.’ ‘He is certainly rich,’ responded George quietly ; ‘and we are his only near relatives; but I don’t think of that. I only remember how I used to love him in the old days, when my mother was alive and he used to cheer and comfort her, and used to play with me under the great trees.’ ‘And I remember,’ added John, ‘how he used to tell me I ought to have my ears boxed because I robbed bird’s nests, aud stole apples and peaches out of our neighbors’ gar dens. But that was a long time ago. I have forgiven him for all that. I say George, if he should take a fan cy to us, we’re in luck, ain’t we? Yon won’t say anything about — about —’ ‘About what ?’ ‘I was going to say about my business; but never mind. Only those who have been behiud the scenes know the crooks and turns.’ ‘You need not fear that I shall say anything to your disadvantage, John. You’ll find Uucle Moses one of the jolliest and kindest hearted men you ever saw.’ And as John had locked his safe, and finished his toilet, the two cou sins set forth. Uncle Moses Gleddin had been brother to John’s father and to George’s mother, and for many years he had been away in Europe engaged in responsible agencies for American houses; and it was known that he had amassed a fortune. He had married in youth ; but his wife had died leaving no children, and he had never married again ; so that the expeotant nephews were not without foundation. At length the young men reached the hotel, and as George had been there before he led the way. ‘Uncle Moses,’ he said, upon en tering a room where a genial faced, smiling, portly, elderly gentleman rose to receive him, ‘this is John. — John, this is Uncle Moses.’ John looked and turned pale as death. Uncle Moses, looked and flushed like a scarlet rose. ‘How—this —John?’ ‘Of course it is John, Sir,’ said George, in answer. ‘And not Joshua Slurr T ‘O,’ cried George, thinking that by some accident Uncle Moses might have seen John’s face beneath the pawn broker’s sign, ‘that is the name of the man who was in business be fore him.’ ‘And,’ added Unole Moses severe ly, ‘if I mistake not, it is the name under which he now does business for himself.’ John Gleddin could not deny it, for he saw, in his Uncle Moses, the man whom ho had ho meanly taken the valuable watch. He tried to say something, but the words choked him ; and he stood like a whipped cur before his relative. Finally he mustered up com age to ask his uncle to forgive him. ‘I may forgive you,’ answered Uncle Moses, ‘but I cannot lake you into my confidence yet. I think yon had better go borne and sleep upon it. Let us both sleep upon it. 1 would rather not talk of it now. The wound is too trenli.’ John Gledden was no more anxious to stop than his uucle was to detain him; and without further words he took his departure. Once more at the office he thought of the watoh he had sold, and of the two hundred and twenty-five dollars profit he had made; and the conviction was forced upon him that his great operation was likely to prove a very heavy settler upon his greater expectation. And so it ultimately proved. Un ole Moses could not take the dishon est, unscrupulous nephew to his confidence, nor to his love ; nor could John muster the impudence to claim the tender regards of one whom he so meanly and bo unmitigatedly wronged and abused. The result was that the true-hearted printer ere long left the type setting to assume the wealth which Uncle Moses deemed him worthy and well quali fied to enjoy. What the pawn-broker may gain in time we cannot say; but if he ever regains the confidence he has lost, it will be when he has shown by his works that he regards truth and honor as of more value than the sordid profits of such op erations as have heretofore soiled his hands. —Ledaer. POPULAR AMUSEMENTS. Last Sabbath afternoon Rev. E. L. Sherman, of the Methodist church at lowa Falls, preached a sermon on “Popular Amusements,” the pitch of which we give below, fol lowed by some comments of the Sun day School Superintendent, who ed its the lowa Falls Sentinel. The speaker laid down the prem ises “that recreation, to be much, must follow work,” and therefore an idler has no right to give judgment or opinion in the matter. It is nec essary for health and life that man should laugh, and he that never laughs needs either repentance or pills —for the fault sometimes lies in tho liver. Recreations should not be expensive, not hurtful to health, not tend to corrupt, not be surround ed with evil associations. He thought parcuts should provide home amuse ments for their children, and make home a happy place. Parents should come down to a level with their children and romp with them, make them think that home is the center of all happiness. The latter part of the sermon was directed to croquet, and we never heard the game so well defended. He said it was em phatically a “home game.” Simple, inexpensive full of amusement and pleasure, healthful and proper. In fact the speaker talked as if he had been playing croquet and some one had been finding fault with him for it. We cannot give even a sketch o! the sermon in question, but will say that it contained a groat deal of sound sense, and some advanced positions which the speaker is evidently right in taking. It, after the above im perfect Bketch we are permitted to say a lew words on our own hook, we will say that we agree with the speaker exactly on croquet, although we rarely play the game. Further we will find no fault with the man who has a billiard table in bis own house away from the evil associa tions of the saloon. Further, we be lieve in letting your children dance at home in good company if they want to dance. Further that ail these games and things, around which the devil has thrown his arm as ownership, and which he uses to destroy and allure by mixing the poison, should be wrested from his grasp and taken home to be used there. It is said that the devil has all the nice music. This is all wrong. Let us have the violin and all its waltzes, marches, and quicksteps for our amusements at home. The day for long faced, vinegar visaged, Ah, me! Christians is gone by, and the straight laced, horrified and gloomy Christians belongs to the age that has passed. We want laughing, merry christains to show the world that heaven lends a part of its sun shine and gladness to the believer’s heart. The truth “to the pure all things are pure,” applies here. Our observation is that those boys and girls who are straight at home, are the very ones who go to excess in after life. Let us open our hearts and homes to these amusements and our children will never steal away to a hay loft to play cards, or go in the dark to play billiards, or travel miles to attend a disreputable shin dig. SOUTHERN OUTRAGES. A specimen outrage appeared on Independauce day near Chaltanoo ga. The non-partisan account of the affair is as follows : A colored picnic, on the morning of the Fourth, went to Allen’s Springs, forty-two miles out on the Alabama and Chattanoo ga Railroad. When they arrived there they found some white men, mountain roughs, armed with guns and clubs, having oilier arms stacked in an old house a short distance off. The colored people had paid $lO for the use of the grounds The whites sold whiskey to the blacks in the woods, and disturbed the dancing. The blacks re monstrated, causing ill feeling. Six more whites came in the afternoon. At 2 o'clock the blacks started for the tram, when the whites attacked them. The blacks re sisted with pistols, driving the whites to the woods, where they rallied, and firing with buck-shot wounded five, mostly in the arms and legs. One who was wound ed in the back will probably die. Three whites were shot. John Smith, white, in terposed m favor of the blacks and was shot through the breast. The train was fired on after it started, and one black was shot in the hand. The roughs said they had near cleaned out the Dutch who came down once, and now they would clean out the niggers. The roughs were not dis guised. Quite a number of similar affairs occurred the same day ia other parts of the South The notable thing about these outrages is that not a single arrest has been reported. There is nowhere in the South any dominant disposition to protect th. negroes in their constitutional rights The almost sole reliance of the black man is upon national protection. Place the General Government in the hands ot the candidate of the Ka-Klux Kian, and a desolating re gion of terror would inevitably fol low. This consideration should be enough of itself to prevent any hu mane and just citizen from support ing the favorite of Tammany and the Klan.— Chicago Journal. Statistics show that one woman in one hundred marries the man she loves. \ Established July 1850 NOVEL PAIR OF STOCKINGS. ‘1 believe women will do a good <ieal lor a dance,’ said an old M. D.; ‘they are immensely fond of sport. I remember once in my life 1 used to flirt with one who was a great fa vorite in a provincial town where I lived, and who confided to me that she had no stockings to appear in, and that without them her presence at a hall was out of the question.’ ‘l'hat was a hint for you to buy the stockings,’ said a friend. *No; your’e out,’ said the dootor. ‘She knew that I was as poor as heraidf; but, though she could not rely on my purse, she had every eon fidonet) in my taste and judgment, and consulted me on a plan she had formed lor going to the ball in prop er trim. Now, what do you think it was ?’ ‘To go in ootton, I suppose,’ re turned the friend. ‘Out again, sir. You'd never guess it, and only a woman could have hit upon the expedient. It was the fash ion in those* days for ladies in full dress to wear pink stockings, and she proposed painting her legs. ‘Painting her legs !’ exclaimed his friend. ‘Factsir,’ said the doctor; ‘and she relied upon me for telling her if the cheat was successful.’ ‘And was it?’ asked his friend. ‘Don’t be in a hurry, friend. I complied on one condition, namely : that I should be the painter.’ ‘Oh! you old rascal,’ said the friend. ‘Don’t interrupt me, gentlemen,’ said the doctor. ‘I got some pink, accordingly; and I defy all the hos iers in Nottingham to make a tighter fit than I did on little Jennie. A prettier pair of stockings I never saw.’ ‘And she went to the ball?’ ‘She did.’ ‘And the trick succeeded.’ ‘So completely,’ said the doctor, ‘that several of the ladies asked her to recommend her dyer to them. So you see what a woman will do to go to a dance. Poor Jennie ! she was a merry minx. By the by, she boxed my ears that night for a joko I made about the stockings. ‘Jennie,’ said I, ‘for fear your stockinge should fall down while you are dancing, hadn’t you better let me paint a pair of gar ters on them?” A COMPARISON. Two defalcations in New Orleans under Johnson’s administration amounted to a sum nearly equal to the total amount lost by the present administration since March 3, 1869. For the benelit of the ‘faithless’ few, we give the items : The Sub Treasury, Treasury, and National Depositary defalcation of Whittaker and May, in 1867, less ain’t supposed to be recovered, (gross amount, $1,150,000) $ 850,000 00 Steadman Internal Revenue defalcation, First Louisi ana District, discovered on , his removal, April 13, ’O9, 212,836 93 Total $1,062,336.93 The total amount of defalcations, covering over three years of General Grant’s term, is about $1,091,963.64. To steal this sum it required over two hundred dishonest officials, and out of this number one hundred and thirty-seven were appointed by An dy Johnson. Yet Andy is in favor of ‘honest’ Horace, and with his usual vigor drinks daily to the suc cess of the reform movement. What a happy combination of immaoulate reformers! Bill Tweed wants an honest treasury. Andy Johnson wants free trade and the tax remov ed from whisky. The pirate Semmes wants a loyal navy, while Jeff Davis and Alex. Stephens fill up the back ground and desire a pure judiciary, that can make theKu klux outrages constitutional. Greeley can satisfy them all. ANYTHING TO BEAT GRANT. The Savannah News very wicked ly says : “The wheat harvest has not been without some bearing on the November elections. A contra band in Clayton county recently got his head tangled in a steam thresh ing machine and went up in a show er of chaff. Well—anything to beat Grant.”—Talladega Watchtower. Just so, this clipping taken first from the Savannah News, and en dorsed by the Talladega Watchtower shows to what extent the Democrats are willing to carry this miserable senseless ‘battle cry’ ot ‘anything to beat Grant.* It shows to colored men that the Democracy don’t care what overtakes the negro, so they succeed in beating Gen. Grant.— They don’t care it every negro were driven into the sea, if it would bo re duce the Republican vote, that Gree ley, the champion of modern De mocracy, can be elected next fall. We ask you colored men to read this carefully and see whether you can support a party that is willing to have every negro ground up in a threshing machine in order to elect Mr. Gree ley.—Alabama Republican. DEATH OF PRESIDENT JUAREZ. Matamobas, July 24. General liacha telegraphed from Monterey, this afternoon, that Pres ident Juarez had died on the night of the 18th inst., from an attack of apoplexy, which had seized him at 5 o’clock in the afternoon of that day, and ordered that, that the flag of the government should be placed at half mast. The news was receiv ed by all classes with astonishment, and was not credited until it was confirmed by a second disptch trom General Racha. The presidency of the republic will devolve upon Teude De Tejoda, jnstice of the Supreme Court, and until recently secretary cf the foreign affairs in President Juarez’s cabinet, but lately in obpo sition to the Government and re garded as sympathizing with tho revolutionists, although remaining in the city of Mexico and taking no active part with the insurgents until oongress shall order an election to fill the vacancy. HOW THE QUAKERS WILL VOTE. An old friend up in Keokuk county under the date of the 15th inst.: “Dkab Hawk-Eye :—I have been of late frequently asked why ao many Friends are going for Greeley ? To put the matter to rest I think I can safely say there is not a single sound orthodox Friend in the United States that will vote for Greeley. No, we can’t go for Greeley when we know if he is elected it will be putting the Government into the hands of the rebels. And, further, as President Grant is the only ruler of auy nation who has seen fit to recognize our Peace principles, it would be a let down and a reproach to the Society of Friends to talk of going for Gree ley. Friends have taken very little stock m Horace since he bailed Jeff Davis. As an individual, I would as Boon vote for Davis as for Gree ley. I h av ® no idea I have written will be contradicted.” The Weekly Oskaloosa Herald. ~ II ej Faj* mi Bast Advertising Medium in Uskaicoc* It KTtfSO A 1 w Jlti T ClrculuLlon 4. upics Moft of which are to pcn-oi,* i„ Mahn-ka(.N,ui.iy OtTB FACILITIES FOB HOOK AND JOB WORK Areas good as the rtilrtarifls of Mie place v ill w*rr< at, and work- dene on as nusonahle raica ae at any other otlico.

Aud from the same cause—the destruction of our forests —the summers are growing drier and onr winters coldor.” The Des Moines Republican says: “A funny joke, and all the more palatable as its truth can be vouched for, occurred at a prominent church not far away, It seems that a wor thy deacon had been industrious in selling a new church book, costing seventy-five cents. At the Bervico in question, the minister, just before dismissiag the congregation, arose and said, — “All those who have children to baptize, will please to present them next Sabbath.” The deacon, who by the way was a little deaf, having an eye to selling' the books, and supposing the pastor was referring to them, immediately jumped up and shouted, — “All you who havn’t can get as many as you want by calling on me, at seventy-five cents each.” A wag was requested by an old lady to read a newspaper for her. He took it up and read as follows : “Last night, yesterday morning, about 1 o’clock in the afternoon, be fore breakfast, a hungry boy about 40 years old, bought a big custard for a levy, and threw it through a brick wall nine feet thick, and jump ed ove: it, broke his right ankle off above his left knee, and fell into a dry mill pond and was drowned. About 40 years after that, on the same day, an old cat had nine turkey gobblers ; a high wind blew Yankee Doodle on a frying pan, and killed a sow and two pigs at Boston, where a deaf and dumb woman was talking to liis aunt Peter.” Whereupon tho old lady, taking a long breath ex claimed, “Do tell 1” Disinfectants. —During the hot season, in town and country, the free use’of disinfectants, about the cellar, out-houses and back-yards will con duce very much to the health and comfort of all. And you need not pay five or ten cents per pound for chloride of lime for this purpose. A good article can be made at home cheaply. Half a bushel of salt dis solved in a half barrel of water, then dissolve half a barrel of lime with the salt water, and you have atonoe enough chloride of lime for yourself and your neighbors. There is no patent on this prescription, and all can by it have the atmosphere about their premises pure and healthy. An unscrupulous person writes as follows to the New York Commer cial Advertiser: “They tell this story today of Dr. Henry, who is stay ing at the Grand Union: The other day he was called upon to attend Gratz Brown in New York, when Gratz facetiously and foolishly re marked ; It is seldom, Doctor, that you are so honored as to be called to attend a Vice President?’ ‘Oh, no,’ replied the Doctor, ‘I attended Vice President (?’) Frank Blair in ,68, but your case is a good deal worse than his /” It has generally been supposed that the softshell crab is indigenous to the sea. Gratz Brown has ex ploded this fallacy. Borboun coun ty, Kentucky, is its favorite resort. In winter the crabs are taken “straight,” but in summer they should be cooked in sugar, lemon and ice, and eaten with a straw. It is a remarkable genital fact that an overstock of crabs in the head often produces snakes in the boots — Chi cago Journal. The Republicans claim North Carolina by 10,000 majority; tho Opposition by 5,000. It depends upon the Ku-Klux which prediction shall prove true. If the Klan can carry out their plots to overawe Re publican voters in tho sparsely-set tled portions oi tho State, the Dem ocratic victory will follow. We hope no effort will bo spared on the part of the authorities to protect every citizen in the free exercise of the elective franchise. The last issue of the Jasper Re publican announces that Robert Ry an, Esq, of Newton, a member of the Liberal Republican State Com mittee, has repudiated Greelyism, and comes out squarely for Grant and Wilson, Mr.'M. Howard, of the same place, a delegate to the Dav enport and Cincinnati Convention, also deserts tho mongrel party and returns to straight Republicanism. In 1802 the rebel Gen. Beauregard wrote : “It is high time to proclaim the flag ; let the execution of aboli tionist prisoners be by the garrote.” In 1872 ho writes : “We must all unite under the banner of the consti tution and the laws, reunion and re form, honesty and universal amnes ty ; that banner has lately been raised at Cincinnati uuder the lead ership of Greeley and Brown.” ‘A purely selfish interest,* Mr. Greeley once remarked, ‘attaches the low, ruffianly, criminal and dan gerous classes to the Democratic party.’ And now a purely selfish interest attaches Mr. Greeley to the lewd, ruffianly, and dangerous class es.
